How Does Lithium Mining Actually Work and Will We Have Enough?

Feb 20, 2018· Lithium obtained from salars is recovered in the form of lithium carbonate, the raw material used in lithium ion batteries. The production process is fairly straightforward and requires only natural evaporation, which leaves behind not only lithium, but also magnesium, calcium, sodium, and potassium.. The lithium content of ocean water is far lower, hovering around 0.17 parts per million.
