NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jul 19, 2012) - Mammoth Energy Group Inc. (PINKSHEETS: MMTE) a lithium and alternative energy mining company announced today that bidding wars are beginning to develop on Lithium related projects in Chile.
"The past two years have been quite busy for Mammoth Energy Group," said William Lieberman, President of Mammoth Energy Group. "We have built a base of investors that are focused on the development of the company's assets through its subsidiary Chile Lithium Investments Limitada. The lithium market has begun to develop quite rapidly and investors and governments are now beginning to see the strategic importance lithium has in our daily communications. The large mining companies are in Chile and there are a handful of juniors who are actively seeking joint venture and assets sales," he added.
According to an interview named "Lithium Demand Will Spike" by The Energy Report, Daniela Desormeaux, an expert in industrial chemicals and natural resources, named several factors that have led her to conclude that lithium demand will tighten even more. In light of the fact that Bloomberg Businessweek, also quoted by Ms. Desormeaux, recently reported that lithium prices have tripled, this new expert information may be a signal that the market for lithium could quickly be headed for a "bubble effect."
Multiple reports of Apple's booming iPad sales, smartphones and electric cars driving up lithium prices and tightening demand have recently hit the news as these items need lithium as the main ingredient in their long-life batteries. Consumers are also anticipating an Apple iPhone 5 to be released this year. Bloomberg reported that, due to the exploding popularity of iPads and increasing sales of hybrid cars, investors from JPMorgan Chase & Co. to BlackRock Inc. are investing in producers of lithium for batteries.
