The Czech Republic is looking to open fresh talks with Australian-based metals company, European Metals Holdings over its plans to extract lithium in the country. Minister of Industry and Trade Tomáš Hüner has said that a meeting with company bosses should take place within two weeks at the latest.

A memorandum over lithium mining and processing signed by the previous government will not be cancelled for the moment, the minister added.

The question of lithium mining and the memorandum became one of the main points of conflict in October’s elections to the lower house of parliament with the ANO party of current prime minister, Andrej Babiš, accusing the Social Democrats of selling out the country’s interests.
