Brine mining is the wave of the future, and can be used to extract countless materials, from Lithium to silver, or silica from sand, it is the only way to extract the finest, purest lithium available, reducing cost later during the process of refining, adding value to the mining process.
It is also cheaper to liquid mine, than mechanical mine, once initial costs are covered. This also allows brine removal to be applied to piles of waste/scrap to extract material that can not be recovered mechanically, such as silver being removed from common slag piles at aprox 1oz.per ton for example.
Brine mining (think vinegar) is also environmentally safer than most chemicals used otherwise in the industry. This liquid mining process will be the norm some day for many mining operations and environmental cleanup tasks as well.
