Former President Mauricio Macri brought in reforms to encourage foreign investment in Argentina’s mining industry after being elected in 2015. The reforms knocked down barriers which have allowed the country’s rich lithium reserves to be tapped into.

Geological testing conducted at the site has discovered that an estimated 14,500 tonnes of lithium carbonate can be produced annually at the project.
