Hundreds of acres of stunning countryside in County Durham are set to play a key part in an energy revolution for the North East.

The land is being worked by Weardale Lithium, who extract valuable minerals from the brine flowing underground.

The lithium they bring to the surface will be a vital part of battery manufacture for the likes of Nissan at Sunderland and Britishvolt near Blyth.

Today the company has signed a deal to work with Alkemy – who are building the Tees Valley Lithium plant at Wilton to provide a secure and sustainable, domestic supply of lithium.
