Trump-approved Nevada lithium mine could unlock Biden clean energy goals

Trump-approved Nevada lithium mine could unlock Biden clean energy goals

Josh Siegel of The Washington Examiner reports that a Trump-approved Nevada lithium mine could unlock Biden’s clean energy goals.

The C3 Take
  • Thacker Pass would provide lithium, a critical mineral that is essential for the production of electric vehicles and batteries.
  • The mine would create 1,000 construction jobs and generate about $75 million in state and local tax revenue over the next ten years.
  • By establishing a domestic lithium supply chain we can protect our environment and grow our economy.

“Thacker Pass, located on 5,500 acres of federal land near the border with Oregon, was one of several mining and energy projects the Trump administration expedited for review during the pandemic. New Interior Secretary Deb Haaland has not weighed in on the project publicly, but the mine would be compatible with the clean energy agenda of the Biden administration, which includes a prioritization of boosting U.S. development of critical minerals.”
