Lifton on the hottest resource topic in China today – lithium.

July 13, 2016 — InvestorIntel Senior Editor Jack Lifton is just back from his latest visit to China where he picked more impressions of what is shaping that country’s policies on acquiring resource projects around the world. He sees this as part of a much larger, and longer story, of how the world has changed and evolved: Britain and the United States had their moments in the sun, now it’s China’s turn.

In this interview with InvestorIntel Publisher Tracy Weslosky, Jack Lifton:

  • Explains that Chinese companies are not buying foreign projects to make money in the stock market, but to acquire raw materials for their industries.
  • How their focus is shifting from buying only producing companies to juniors that are in the development phase.
  • How Chinese capital will help North American mining stay in business.

And he reports on what is the hottest resource topic in China today — it’s lithium.
