Amateur geologists in Western Maine have discovered the find of a lifetime on land they own. It’s an 11-ton rock deposit, rich in lithium crystals. The estimated worth is $1.5f billion dollars.
The lithium deposit was discovered near Newry, and it looks like excavating it could pose a challenge.t Maine’s 2017 metallic mining laws are considered the strictest in the nation.
