Recently, a meeting was held between Vice Governor Rubén Dusso, Vice Governor of the province of Catamarca in Argentina, authorities from the state mining-energy company Camyen SE and representatives from Morena del Valle Minerals SA, a subsidiary of the Australian Lake Resources.

The company operates a lithium brine project, called Kachi, and the purpose of the meeting was to discuss the possibilities that the geothermal resources available in the province can offer Catamarca as a generator of clean and renewable electricity, both to support the lithium to put it in service and people’s quality of life.

A planned tender for the Copahue location, where a geothermal power plant once stood, appears never to have gotten off the ground and there is no information on the current status of other projects. A 2019 webinar shared some thoughts on the new frontiers of geothermal in Chile and Argentina.
