Storyboard Text

  • Oh hey Karunian! I'm just playing with this thing called lithium metal!
  • Hey Jonathan! What are you doing?
  • Check it out! It starts of as a silvery colour... 
  • Woah! Cool!
  • But when it's cut into 2, it quickly tarnishes in the air, making it turn black!
  • It can be found in spacecrafts, batteries, and rebreathers too! It can also help treat bipolar disorder!
  • It's found in a mine called the James Bay mine, in Quebec.
  • It can also be found in ocean water, and can be obtained from brines
  • No way! Where's it found in Canada, though?
  • It's mined from pegmatite, an intrusive igneous rock, and recovered from mineral spodumene.
  • First, it is crushed and grinded to separate lithium minerals from pegmatite. Then it is heated at more than 800 degrees celcius.
  • It is concentrated, calcinated, then roasted with sulfuric acid. Then it is removed of its impurities of other elements.
  • How's the mineral processed?
  • After it goes through ion exchange and membrane electrolysis, becomes purified, and turns into lithium hydroxide. Lastly, it can be crystallized and turned into lithium carbonate.
  • Yes, it does! Before the material is processed, the lithium starts out as a soft silvery metal, that is less dense than water.
  • After all the processing, the lithium hydroxide becomes a white solid that has a strong odor, and a higher density than water. Lithium carbonate becomes a white powder, that is osourless, and also has a higher density than water
  • COOL! Does the material change during this process?
