SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 30, 2017) - SourcingLink.net (OTC PINK: SNET) is pleased to share the market sentiment from this year's Indaba mining conference. "Forecasts are unified in their projections as overall demand for battery metals is expected to soar," according to the panel moderator and general manager at Industrial Metals, Barbara O'Donovan.
"This will no doubt support both lithium and cobalt prices in the years ahead, O'Donovan said, with lithium carbonate spot prices having already increased from as low as $7/kg in June 2016 to as much as $20.5-24/kg today." From article published on February 7th, 2017. (Source: http://www.platts.com/latest-news/metals/london/battery-demand-to-drive-lithium-cobalt-market-26656704)
"Rising lithium and cobalt prices are not expected to dampen overall demand for batteries as they make up less than 3% of total costs in the case of lithium. Even with demand forecast to increase significantly, new supply is expected to meet it in the medium term."
SourcingLink.net is taking steps to prepare for the 2017 May exploration of their Lac Fire Claims in Quebec. The goal is to visit areas where lithium has been found and continue later on in the summer.
