India Discovers New Lithium Reserve in Degana, Rajasthan, With Capacity to Meet 80% of Total Demand.
The mining officials in India have discovered a new lithium reserve in Degana, Rajasthan, with a higher capacity than the existing reserves in Jammu & Kashmir. According to mining officials, this newly discovered reserve has the potential to satisfy 80% of the total lithium demand in India.
Lithium is an essential mineral in making lithium-ion batteries, which are widely used in electric vehicles, mobile phones, laptops, and other electronic devices.
India is one of the largest consumers of lithium-ion batteries, with the demand expected to surge in the coming years due to the government’s push towards electric mobility.
The reserve in Degana was discovered after extensive exploration by the Geological Survey of India, and it is said to have high-grade lithium deposits. This new discovery will not only boost India’s lithium reserves but also reduce the country’s dependence on imports of this critical mineral.
This new finding is a significant development for India as it aligns with the country’s goal of achieving a clean, self-reliant, and sustainable future.
The government’s initiatives, such as the National Electric Mobility Mission Plan, will benefit from this new discovery as India moves towards electrified transportation. (TRK)
