Chinese groups make $C265m swoop for Canada’s Lithium X
China’s Tibet Summit Resources and its partner NextView Capital have agreed to buy Canadian lithium producer Lithium X for $C265m (USD $206m), the latest move by Chinese companies to secure battery raw materials for the world’s largest electric car market.
Lithium X will be delisted from the TSX Venture Exchange after the deal, Tibet Summit Resources said. Shares in Lithium X were halted for trading Monday.
The deal is the second investment by Beijing-based NextView Capital into battery metal lithium market in the last two weeks, following its agreement last week to buy a 20 percent stake in London-listed Bacanora Minerals.
Chinese companies have been on a buying spree for lithium and cobalt companies over the past year, signing agreements for future supply of the metals. The string of deals come as auto companies have announced ambitious plans for electric vehicles in the country.
Lithium X has two lithium projects in Argentina’s Salta province, as well as a stake in Pure Energy Metals, which is developing a lithium project in Nevada.
