Best Answer

Most lithium is now mined in Argentina, Chile, and Australia. There is one mine in Nevada, with experimental geo-thermal power plants that extract lithium as a by-product near the Salton Sea in Southern California. The largest known deposits are in Bolivia, but the political problems have hindered their development.
