The discovery highlights several advantages of tapping Wyoming's lithium reserves. First the Rock Springs Uplift formation is located within 30 miles of one of the world's largest industrial soda ash mines. Production of lithium from brines requires soda ash, and being that close to such a large supply reduces delivery costs. Removing magnesium from the lithium laden brine is another significant cost, but there appears to be little magnesium in these brine deposits, Finally, the brines in the Rock Springs Uplift are very deep and the increased pressure and temperature facilitates the extracting of the lithium in solution. Ease of extraction reduces costs further.
