TONOPAH, Nevada -- A massive lithium mining deal was being kept secret when Paiute Shoshone Journalist Myron Dewey made his final warning about lithium mining in Nevada. Dewey was killed in a head-on collision the day after he live-streamed and warned of the dangers of both the Navy's bombing range here, and lithium mining.

The company now admits that the lithium deal near Tonopah in Nye County was being kept secret and that lithium mining is considered gold, as the demand for lithium for batteries increases for electric cars, cellphones and laptops.


The silence about lithium mining in Dewey's homelands, was mirrored at the UN Climate Summit, COP26 in Scotland, where there was little mention of the Indigenous People risking their lives to protect the land and water from lithium mining. Lawsuits have resulted globally from the deaths of children working in cobalt mines for the lithium batteries.

Electric cars are part of the corporate and political "greenwashing" underway, offering false solutions to the climate crisis.

Tonopah Lithium Corp., formally American Lithium Corp., has 13,000 acres of unpatented mining claims, about six miles northwest of Pahrump in Nye County.
