The Star: Corporation looks to restart lithium mining in Kings Mountain

Reprinted from The Star

A once viable mine could be reactivated and put Kings Mountain on the map in the lithium industry. 

With that vision in mind, Albemarle Corp., which owns the old mine and approximately 800 acres of property in Kings Mountain, continues to take steps to make it a reality. 

Representatives with the organization will host the first of several meetings to discuss the project with the community at 7 p.m. Monday, March 28, at Kings Mountain City Hall, 101 W. Gold St., Kings Mountain.

That first meeting will serve as an introduction of Albemarle to residents, though the company has been operating a lithium research and processing facility in the community since 2012. 

Organizers also say it will be the beginning of a dialogue they hope to continue throughout the process.
