Santiago Montt, CEO of the Montt Group, spoke with Simon Druker about lithium development in South America.

Montt identified Chile, Bolivia and Argentina as the continent’s lithium triangle, given their abundant salar resources.

While Argentina is accepting private investments to exploit the mineral, Chile and Bolivia are reserving their supply for government purposes for the time being.

That said, Montt noted positive policy developments and lithium extraction technology research on the part of the Chilean government, both of which are cementing a foundation for private-sector collaborations.

Montt was joined by Attorney at Law Cristian Solis.

The Montt Group, est. 1974, offers services to companies and entrepreneurs in different specialized areas of the law, including foreign investment, extractive businesses, corporate law, information technology, and in general, the broad universe of legal services needed for successful business development. Its current footprint includes Canada, the U.S. and nine countries across Latin America.
