Over the long-term, I think SQM’s superior resources combined with higher demand will drive market beating investor returns – in spite of gyrating commodity prices and corporate governance risks. Thanks to government concessions and the unique geography of Northern Chile, SQM has access to low-cost, unique natural resources – namely, caliche ore and mineral-rich brines. These resources can be accessed relatively easily via shallow strip mines and pump wells. And after basic processing, like leaching or evaporating in pools,SQM is left with valuable agricultural and industrial chemicals. SQM’s advantage is the unique nature of its resources – elements that build up thanks to the unique topography of the area – ancient minerals, possibly from an evaporated inland sea, combined with run-off from the Andes and a very dry climate.
