The share price plunged from 30 cents to about 20 cents in June. But, now, the numbers look solid ― and so does the share price.

There’s still a fair bit of work ahead.

Argosy Minerals needs to secure off take agreements for its ‘battery grade’ lithium and then put the mine into production. Once that happens, if the lithium market still looks good, the share price could explode.
