Finding and Developing the Building Blocks of the Green Energy Revolution

Lithium Energi Exploration Inc. (LEXI) is a green energy company focused on acquiring
exploring and developing lithium brine assets in Argentina.

A Lithium Triangle Project

Lithium Energi Exploration Inc. (LEXI) is a green energy company focused on the acquisition and development of lithium brine assets in Argentina. Headquartered in Toronto, Ontario, with offices in Catamarca, Argentina, the Company’s shares are listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (TSXV:LEXI), the Frankfurt Exchange (FR:LO9) and the U.S. OTC market (OTC:LXENF). All LEXI’s projects are in the heart of the prolific Lithium Triangle, in the mining-friendly province of Catamarca, near a multitude of projects and operations owned by some of the most prominent players in the lithium industry. LEXI has consolidated one of the largest lithium brine claim portfolios in this region that is not owned by a producing company, with key positions on two of the world’s highest-quality salars, Antofalla and Hombre Muerto, totaling approximately 72,000 hectares.


lithium is the driving force behind the global energy transition

The global energy transition is predicted to trigger as much as a 40-fold increase in demand for lithium by 2040, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA). Lithium-ion batteries are used to store energy from renewable sources such as wind and solar. Demand for electric vehicles (EVs) is also soaring as more countries pledge to phase out gasoline-powered cars. Sometimes called ‘white gold’, lithium is one of the key components in EV batteries. Clean energy transitions will have far-reaching consequences and opportunities for metals and mining.


Demand for lithium is predicted to grow 40-fold in the next two decades due to the energy transition to renewable power and electric vehicles.

Electric Vehicles

Looking closer, the analysts forecast 2.9 million tonnes of LCE (Lithium Carbonate Equivalent) a year by 2032. Consider that, in total, 2.7 tonnes of LCE were produced from 2015 through 2022 so far. In 2040, one month’s lithium needs are expected to be equal to all of the battery-grade lithium produced in 2021.


According to industry consensus data, global production of lithium amounted to 546,000 tonnes of lithium carbonate equivalent (LCE) in 2021.

Lithium Supply

Annual production of 11.2 million tonnes LCE will be needed by 2050 with energy storage making up two-thirds of battery demand by that date, due to the growth of renewable energy sources such as wind and solar.


Production needs significant new investment to keep pace with demand for the metal that represents ~70% of the value in a battery.

To Reach Demand

The lithium industry needs $42 billion of investment if it is to meet 2030 demand, according to analysis by Benchmark Mineral Intelligence. This works out at approximately $7 billion a year between now and 2028 if the industry is to meet lithium demand by the end of the decade.


Lithium brines are by far a much cleaner, greener source of lithium than traditional deep pit, hard rock mining operations.

Looking Ahead

Lithium chemicals derived from hard rock sources such as spodumene can be more than three times as carbon-intensive as that from brine sources according to Benchmark Mineral Intelligence’s (Benchmark Minerals’) Lithium ESG Report.
