May 17 (Reuters) - Australian lithium miner Kidman Resources said on Thursday it has entered into a binding agreement to supply lithium hydroxide to electric car maker Tesla Inc.
The deal is for an initial three-year term on a “fixed-price take-or-pay basis” from the first product delivery, and contains two three-year term options, the company said in a statement.
Kidman said it was also in talks with other strategic, globally significant parties seeking refined lithium offtake.
