The MarketsAndMarkets report said: “Leading EV markets like China, the US, and Germany are spending heavily in EV charging infrastructure in addition to R&D for quicker and more effective charging techniques. Automakers are anticipated to make large expenditures to meet the growing demand for EVs and to shape the industry. For the development of EVs, companies like Tesla, Volkswagen, Ford, Nissan, BMW, and General Motors have large R&D budgets. The expected decline in battery prices and reduced R&D costs are likely to decrease the overall cost of purchasing electric hatchbacks, crossovers, or SUVs to reach the levels of ICE vehicles, leading to the rising demand for EVs. The global EV battery market is dominated by major players CATL (China), Panasonic Holdings Corporation (Japan), LG Chem (South Korea), BYD (China), and Samsung SDI (South Korea).

Infinity Stone Ventures Corp. (OTCQB: GEMSF) (CSE: GEMS) BREAKING NEWS: Infinity Stone Options 38,441ha Sugar Loaf and Little Dipper Lithium Projects Near Sigma Lithium in Minas Gerais Province, Brazil – Infinity Stone Ventures Corp. (FSE:B2I) (the “Company” or “Infinity Stone”), is pleased to announce that it has optioned the 38,441-hectare Sugar Loaf and Little Dipper Lithium Projects (the “Sugar Loaf Project” and “Little Dipper Project”, respectively; collectively, the “Projects”). The Sugar Loaf Project is located 15 kilometres from both Sigma Lithium Resources’ (“Sigma Lithium”) (NASDAQ:SGML) Grota do Cirilo Project and Lithium Ionic Inc’s (“Lithium Ionic”) (TSXV:LTH) Itinga Project in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. The Little Dipper Project is located in the state of Ceará, approximately 10 kilometres from Oceana Lithium Ltd.’s (“Oceana”) (ASX:OCN) Solonopole Lithium Project. The Sugar Loaf Project comprises 13 exploration permits, while the Little Dipper Project comprises 9 exploration permits.
The Sugar Loaf and Little Dipper Projects were optioned on the basis of perceived geological potential from known mineralized trends. Both Minas Gerais and Ceará have become regions of interest for hard rock lithium exploration, with a number of early and later stage exploration companies active in the region, as well as companies much closer to production such as Sigma Lithium. Brazil has been recognized as one of the world’s major high-grade lithium producers. For example, LG Energy Solutions (“LG”) recently secured a 6-year offtake agreement with Sigma’s subsidiary Brazilian Sigma Mineração SA. LG is a battery supplier to multiple EV companies, including Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA).
Sigma’s properties are located in the municipalities of Araçuaí and Itinga, in Brazil’s mining-friendly Minas Gerais State, approximately 450 kilometres northeast of the state capital of Belo Horizonte. Sigma holds 27 mineral rights in four properties spread over 191 square kilometres (19,100 hectares), which include nine past-producing lithium mines.
Infinity Stone intends to conduct a satellite imagery-based spectral analysis to determine areas of interest for targeted exploration. Following this, the Company intends to mobilize an exploration team immediately to the Projects to conduct initial groundwork, including grab and channel sampling, trenching, and mapping. There will be a focus on identifying pegmatites across the claim blocks that have the potential for lithium-cesium-tantalum (LCT) mineralization.
