Lithium Americas on March 2 announced the start of construction on the proposed Thacker Pass lithium mine in northern Nevada, a day after a federal appeals court rejected a request by environmental groups and tribes for an injunction to stop development.

The company said it received a notice to proceed from the Bureau of Land Management. "Starting construction is a momentous milestone for Thacker Pass and one we have been working towards for over a decade," Jonathan Evans, the company's president and CEO, said in a statement.
