10. Wealth Minerals

Canadian-based Wealth Minerals has invested heavily in lithium mining in northern Chile. The outfit tapped into the lithium rich Salar de Atacama region where SQM and Albemarle have productive mines. Having acquired the Laguna Verde operation, this lithium junior outfit has access to a potential 512,960 tonnes of lithium carbonate. Stock value has taken a sharp uptick since January 2016 and continues trending as the outfit moves forward in developing its lithium operations in Chile. In many respects, Wealth Minerals might be an operation starting to come into its own, depending on the success or failure of the Laguna Verde project.
