Good news from the Himalayas!A third lithium mine looms, and the White House is stunned: China is lucky

According to the news of the domestic media, recently reporters from the Chinese Academy of Sciences institute of Geology and geophysics, the domestic discovery of a large lithium mine, the discovery of the lithium mine, to solve the development of new energy technology demand will play an important role.A research team from a research institute has discovered a super-large lithium deposit in the Qiongjiagang region of the Himalayas.This important natural resource, known as “white oil”, is a rare white light metal resource. Afghanistan is rich in lithium mineral resources, but in the country, lithium mineral resources have been limited, and 75% of the annual consumption of lithium resources rely on imports.As the world began to pay attention to the development of new energy industry, the demand for lithium resources increased sharply.Lithium resources have become after oil resources, and a real sense of the world’s resources, the discovery of lithium in the Himalayan region is expected to become the third largest domestic lithium mine after the northwest Bailong Mountain, western Sichuan methylka.According to the report, the discovery of lithium ore is “the first pegmatite lithium ore of industrial value in the Himalayas”, and related geological research results have been published in the journal Acta Petrologica.According to media reports, the team discovered the massive lithium mine based on scientific theories that defy conventional wisdom.If, according to the traditional view, there are large areas of pale granite in the Himalayan region, the origin of these rocks is mainly due to the remelting and in-situ emplacement of sedimentary rocks. In this geological structure, there is theoretically no lithium ore, and rare metals are unlikely to be produced.However, after more than a decade of investigation and research, wu Fuyuan, an academician at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, put forward the theory of the origin of high differentiation of pale granite in 2015, which broke the traditional view and provided a theoretical basis for the existence of lithium ore in the Himalayas.Subsequently, a number of institutions carried out systematic investigations on the basis of scientific theories and found more than 20 rock masses containing rare metal mineralization. However, it is worth noting that although spodumene minerals were found in a few 4 pegystites, no lithium ore bodies of industrial value were found at that time.Until 2020, Qin Kezhang proposed the scientific prediction of “looking for lithium in the farther and higher part of strongly differentiated granite”, which promoted the scientific research team to finally find industrial valuable lithium ore in the summer of 2021.As new energy vehicles become more and more popular in the market, new energy vehicles will gradually replace fuel vehicles in the future.The key to ensure the technological development of new energy vehicles is the power system lithium battery. Although there are many world-famous lithium battery manufacturers such as Ningde Times in China, the domestic lithium ore resources are not rich, and 75% of the lithium ore in the domestic market needs to be imported to solve the problem.If there are some major changes in the international community around lithium mining in the future, it will undoubtedly affect the development of new energy vehicles and other new technologies.The lithium ore found in the Himalayan region after investigation, with good mining conditions, the location of the mining area traffic is relatively convenient, has already opened a rural cement road.At the same time, the ore taking area is far from the core nature reserve of Mount Qomolangma, so the mining will not affect the ecology of Mount Qomolangma area.For now, the lithium mine is still in the early exploratory phase. Mining the ore is a complex industrial discipline, but discoveries can always be used in the future.It turns out that a lot of desolate areas that were once considered economically worthless may hold the treasure of truly changing the future.
