Exploration budgets for lithium and cobalt have rebounded in 2021, with the lithium budget increasing 25% year over year to $249 million and cobalt increasing 27% to $70 million. Despite the increases, both budgets have failed to return to their pre-pandemic levels, unlike other metals such as copper and nickel.
 Moving into 2022, higher prices are encouraging junior explorers to seek new discoveries, and interest is growing among the majors due to the global shift towards decarbonization. Both will pave the way for a brighter future for lithium and cobalt exploration.
