Snippets From Reagan Marble

  • "Lithium is important because that's the way right now we store power. We store it in batteries and cars that way in the big giant battery storage facilities that you're seeing going up throughout Texas.
  • "I really do think Texas can be the leader in it [Lithium extraction]. And I think the U. S. can be a leader across the world. And I'm excited to see the Texas economy benefit from such a future-oriented energy storage solution."
  • "The great thing about brine mining, which is the extraction of useful materials that are naturally dissolved in water of high salinity, it doesn't look any different from a surface impact than a water well that you'd see in rice irrigation farming. The surface impact is no different."
  • "If I am a betting man, I'm betting that the mineral lobby in Texas is good enough that it is going to be ultimately declared part of the mineral estate."
