Project Details


The Tres Quebradas (3Q) lithium carbonate project encompasses 28.900ha of salt lakes and lithium reservoirs, in a sparsely populated area with no aboriginal communities in its vicinity. The nearest paved road connects the project with the seaport of Caldera, some 450km away, which would ensure the Argentine lithium project a connection with the Pacific Ocean through this Chilean port.
