Howard Klein: It's Still Not Too Late to Invest in Lithium

The Investing News Network had the chance to talk with RK Equity’s Howard Klein at this year’s Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention about what’s been happening in the lithium space.

Speaking about the amount of lithium that will be needed to meet increasing demand from the electric vehicle industry and energy storage sector, Klein said there’s definitely been an awakening among market participants.

“The momentum of deal activity is going to accelerate,” he said on the sidelines of the Toronto-based event, held from March 5 to 8. “And (OEMs and battery makers) are trying not to appear as if they're panicked, but I feel that there's musical chairs, it's finally sinking in. But they're still balking because of all the misinformation out there.”

Koby Kushner: Lithium Just Getting Started, Here's How I'm Positioning

The lithium sector remains hot despite a retreat in prices, but for Koby Kushner it's still early days.

Speaking to the Investing News Network at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention, he shared his thoughts on supply and demand dynamics, noting that supply shows no signs of catching up with demand just yet.

"The fundamental issue is that we have been investing in the wrong side of the market. So we started off wanting (electric vehicles), and then it's like now we need batteries, now we need lithium chemicals and then the resource came very last," he said.

Early Stage Exploration Funding Key to Domestic US Lithium Supply, CEO Says

Access to funding for early stage exploration is key to developing a domestic supply chain for lithium in the US, according to Charles FitzRoy, CEO of Bradda Head Lithium(TSXV:BHLI,OTCQB:BHLIF,AIM:BHL).

“We're trying to get funding available for early stage projects. I think that the key thing the US has to do to develop its supply chain is to help fund early stage projects, not just projects which are shovel ready,” FitzRoy said, commenting on the widening gap between lithium supply and demand and the efforts by governments to secure domestic supply of critical minerals.

The chief executive explained that increasing demand for lithium in recent years and the insufficient supply response should cause governments to encourage more mineral exploration to increase supply.

These Four Lithium Stocks Have Investors Charged Up


As the world transitions towards renewable energy and electric transportation, the demand for lithium, a key component in rechargeable batteries, is reaching unprecedented heights. In fact, the market for lithium-ion batteries alone is expected to triple in size by 2025, and the electric vehicle industry is projected to account for nearly half of the global demand for lithium by 2030.
