Ghana Greenlights First Lithium Mine with Eye on Electric Vehicle Boom

Ghana’s government has approved its first lithium mine run by a subsidiary of Australia-based Atlantic Lithium Limited (A11.AX), the West African country said on Thursday, part of its drive to benefit from a global move towards electric vehicles.

The Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources granted Barari DV Ghana Limited a 15-year lease on the mine at Ewoyaa, on Ghana’s southern coast, where the company began exploring for lithium six years ago.
