A corporate presentation out of emerging lithium and tantalum producer Pilbara Minerals Ltd (ASX: PLS) has seen its share price drop 2% to 88c per share today, despite the company revealing a 36% increase in lithium resources at its Pilgangoora Project in Western Australia.
Updates on the resource estimate underpins the company’s Stage 2 development of the project with Pilbara CEO Ken Brinsden saying the company is poised to “take full advantage of burgeoning demand for lithium raw materials – which keeps surprising to the upside”.
Pilbara recently reached a landmark agreement with South Korea’s POSCO for spodumene concentrate from Pilgangoora, with a presentation earlier this month naming the project as “the world’s leading lithium development”.
With a $1.57 billion market cap, Pilbara has plenty of room for expansion and its shares have sunk lower alongside lithium peers this week.
One of the world’s richest people is sounding the alarm on what could be a trillion-dollar technology.
And when a tech billionaire – several times over – speaks, it pays to listen.
This could be your chance to get in on the ground floor!
