ION Energy CEO Ali Haji: Leading Lithium Exploration in the Underexplored Jurisdiction of Mongolia
ION Energy CEO Ali Haji sat down to share exciting updates on the company’s Baavhai-Uul project in Mongolia.
ION Energy (TSXV:ION) CEO Ali Haji sat down to share exciting updates on the Baavhai-Uul project in Mongolia. The 81,000 hectare asset leverages one of the most extensive mining land package licenses granted by the Mongolian government and is in close geographic proximity to China, one of the world’s largest battery manufacturers.
The lithium market is amid a significant steady uptick. In recent years, political powerhouses like the US and the EU have invested more in sustainable energies and the materials needed to fuel them. ION Energy is in a unique position to leverage this positive trend in lithium demand as more of the world converts to electric vehicles and green energy alternatives.
When asked about the benefits of having China as a geographic neighbor and major economic partner, Haji was pleased to acknowledge the company’s strategic positioning to the lithium giant.
“They consume 53 percent of the world’s lithium, they produce 73 percent of the world’s batteries, they refine 80 percent of all lithium that goes in batteries worldwide. So having China on our doorstep is advantageous, extremely advantageous,” Haji said.
Mongolia has signed on as a partner in China’s One Belt, One Road initiative. This alliance would allow the transfer of goods and services — in this case, minerals — across borders far more easily.
