Lithium is relatively abundant in Europe:
The lithium exploration licences map has been realized from available official published data on exploration permits for lithium granted by governments. A minimum of 217 valid exploration licences for lithium is currently registered. At the European scale, these data show a relatively well-distributed exploration activity, which is an interesting element in a close supply perspective between the sources of primary Lithium resources and consumption centers. Several countries, despite a high potential, are still poorly covered by exploration permits, Austria and France among others.
