Cornish Lithium in Cornwall UK Exploring Almost Untapped, Mining Province to Produce a Lithium Supply for the UK and Europe: Interview with Jeremy Wrathall, Founder and CEO
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA

Jeremy Wrathall, Founder and CEO of Cornish Lithium tells us more about the first crowd-funded mining company in the UK. Lithium in brine was first identified in Cornwall in 1864 and even then was identified as a source that could have great commercial significance. Demand for lithium in Europe is rapidly rising and the region is expected to become the second largest source of demand in the world. The fact that there is currently no commercial source of battery grade lithium is of great concern to European automakers, making the region totally dependent on imports. Given that lithium has been identified in both brine and hardrock in Cornwall, Jeremy is very excited about the potential that his projects have to supply the UK and Europe. He believes that “Cornish Lithium has a unique opportunity, here in the UK, to explore in one of the best, almost untapped, mining provinces of the world and to produce a lithium supply for the UK and possibly for Europe as well.” Cornish Lithium has a large role to play in the UK lithium market and is a Company to watch.
