Anglo Sphere

"“There is basically so much damn lithium on earth it’s crazy. It’s one of the most common elements on the planet.”"

"“What we’ve found is we can actually use table salt to extract the lithium from the ore. Nobody’s done this before. All the elements are reusable. It’s a very sustainable way of obtaining lithium.”

Add table salt. Add water. A recipe for lithium mining.

A New Era

Of some interest is that Anglo American were not represented at the 'vote' and have been very quiet on their future for the Woodsmith mine, and indeed Boulby mine.

I guess they have been busy with Effectiveness Efficiency & Delivery : https://www.angloamerican.com/~/media/Files/A/Anglo-American-Group/PLC/m...

T'Interview Techniques

Captain Qahn's picture

Four key management positions have been posted by York Potash : http://siriusminerals.com/work-with-us/jobs/current-vacancies/

Given the prestigious nature of these highly sought after positions; developing and constructing the worlds largest producing potash mine right here in the wonderful weird world of Whitby and the rather quaint National Park overlooking procedures is it prudent to have some professional interview skills to hand?  Fiddlesticks.
