LMEWEEK-Chile sees Codelco's first lithium output 'in 6 to 7 years'

LONDON, Nov 1 (Reuters) - Chile expects state-owned miner Codelco to produce its first lithium in the next six to seven years, mining minister Aurora Williams told Reuters on Wednesday on the sidelines of the annual LME Week industry gathering in London.

Williams added the government hoped Codelco, which is currently in talks with more than 10 potential strategic partners to develop the country’s lithium reserves, would make a decision by March next year. (Reporting by Maytaal Angel and Amanda Cooper; Editing by Mark Potter)
