“The discovery of the first lithium deposit in the province of Hamadan promises the discovery of other precious metals in this province,” Molabeigi was quoted as saying by the Fars news agency.

Likewise, it estimated the lithium reserves discovered at 8.5 million tons.

The leaders in lithium reserves are Bolivia (21 million tons), Argentina (19 million), Chile (9.6 million), Australia (6.4 million) and China (5.1 million). The mineral lithium is known as the ‘white gold’ of the 21st century, since today it is essential in the aerospace and automobile industries.
