    I love this! How fantastic... geothermal, clean renewable energy in symbiosis with Simbol extracting lithium, manganese and zinc with no pollution, right here in the US. And already up to 500 tons/year! Wow.

    Geothermal combined with lithium production seems like a perfect match for the Gigafactory.

    Privately held.......Any ideas?

    Could this combination give California a chance at the Gigafactory?
