Breaking News: Tesla ‘s Battery Revolution Just Reached Critical Mass: Three new plants in California show how lithium-ion storage is ready to power the grid.
Elon Musk and Tesla have made a huge bet that millions of batteries can be strung together to help kick fossil fuels off the grid. Tesla’s $5 Billion gigafactory has dominated the headlines however they face some stiff competition. Three massive battery storage plants—built by Tesla, AES Corp., and Altagas Ltd.—are all officially going live in southern California at about the same time. Any one of these projects would have been the largest battery storage facility ever built. Combined, they amount to 15 percent of the battery storage installed planet-wide last year.
Shrewd Investors and Savvy Traders are always one step ahead of the game, and they’re searching high and low to find undiscovered equities which stand to gain from this explosive opportunity. Look no further as we’ve done the research for you – and found one of the best kept secrets on Wall Street…..
Natural Resource Stocks are on fire, but it’s the lithium miners which are putting the pedal to the metal. Last year saw a dramatic rise in stock prices of several Lithium companies and 2017 looks to be no different as supply is dramatically outstripping demand. Tesla needs all the lithium it can get. And they are in competition with the other companies mentioned.
What makes HZNM so special?
HZNM is working near America’s ONLY producing lithium mine — specifically, in Nevada’s Clayton Valley.
The U.S. Geological Survey described Clayton Valley as the “best-known deposit in the world” for lithium.
Clayton Valley has a land area nearly the size of Rhode Island.
That is a LOT of rich lithium-mining territory.
But the REAL beauty of Clayton Valley is the fact that its lithium reserves have been proven and producing in real mines since 1967.
And not only that…
The lithium found in the Clayton Valley comes in the form of lithium brine — a special form of lithium that is cheap and easy to extract. Unlike rock-based lithium, brine is found in salts, and does not require an elaborate extraction process. This means Clayton Valley lithium is among the cheapest to produce in the world.
HZNM is sitting directly on top of this “lithium gold mine” and is ready to deliver!
An Exponential Growth Market
Lithium carbonate spot price has increased markedly from around US$5,000 per tonne in 2015 to around US$15,000 per tonne today – with prices in the Chinese markets reaching even higher levels. When Elon Musk unveiled the Tesla Model 3 last year, he announced a highly ambitious plan that in order to produce 500,000 electric vehicles, Tesla would need to double the world’s lithium-ion cell production.
Tesla alone has the potential to be disruptive to the lithium market and they are far from the only participant in the EV segment. Analysts and automakers are forecasting much higher production rates and sales of EVs, with minimum 10 million EV sales expected for 2025, and 2016 saw a flurry of announcements from incumbent automakers around the world.
According to the WSJ, Tesla’s Gigafactory could “outpace all the world’s existing plants’ production by a factor of 10.” The factory’s size has led to a string of efforts to mine commodities, like lithium, in North America and to bring more processes to the region. TSLA is attempting is to close the logistics loop from where cells are made and materials are made and move it closer to where the vehicles are made.
What does this mean for HZNM?
Horizon Minerals Corp. (Symbol: HZNM) is Perfectly Positioned to Potentially Supply this Huge Demand!
Welcome To the Lithium-Ion Age!
Lux Research, a leading independent research and advisory firm, believes the electric vehicle market will grow to $10 billion within the next four years, while Navigant Research forecasts sales of electric vehicles to increase from 2.6 million in 2015 to over 6 million in 2024.
According to Deutsche Bank, demand for lithium will rise from 209,000 tonnes in 2016 to 534,000 tonnes in 2025.
This all adds up to a MASSIVE Potential, and Lithium Stocks are skyrocketing as a result.
There may be a new player in the Lithium space. Can Horizon Minerals Corp deliver?
Time will tell. In the meantime, HZNM is one stock which needs to be placed on your watchlist.
