After precious metals were hydrocarbons, extracted by multinationals that they only had to convince governments dominated by a white minority which now aims to gleaned the country faced the threat of an indigenous Government that threatens its interests. I.e., the coveted hydrocarbons management. The Bolivian Government precautions to avoid that the same will happen with its reserves of lithium discovered last year, the largest in the world. The mineral, called to replace oil for their properties to conduct heat and electricity, is essential component to manufacture batteries for electric cars, in addition to cell phones, pacemakers, computers, laptops and even satellites. The French company Bollore has already sent three delegations to Bolivia to become the main investor for the extraction of metal. For its part, Mitsubishi, Ford and Nissan also compete for the reserves, although the President Evo Morales says that it has no commitment in writing.

Bolivian President says that the State will retain the monopoly of their exploitation, from the extraction to the production of batteries, with a minimum of 60% of State participation in the shares. Establishes it as well also the new Constitution, so unpopular in rich countries and in areas of Bolivia where the white minority is concentrated. Chantal Liegeois, report scientific of the salar of Uyuni, where large reserves are supports the position of Evo Morales: it no longer exporting raw materials. If the Government decides to go ahead with his project, Bolivia will change, says Liegois, after insisting on the need to control the extraction, production and marketing of lithium, strategic in a world that lives an energy crisis.

Weight – 5 kg. Locking device secures the hatch over a concrete slab foundation, brick walls or well, that makes the protected door virtually invulnerable, and in this scenario can not be tearing the whole structure. Designed LLC PG "Finprom-Resource" product has a simple and original design. In the center of the hatch drilled one hole with a diameter of 36 mm, which is a keyhole. Drilling is performed by one worker and possibly on-site installation hatch. With the help of the head, rod and nut by one person lever-hinge mechanism is mounted on the lid.

Lock screw has a buttress thread, which prevents the corrosive "gripe" with the nut. Locking is performed manually using a special key. Key inserted into the keyhole and by rotation actuates the locking mechanism, which includes the levers at his disposal with a concrete slab foundation or brickwork hatch design also allows the key cleaning the inlet of all forms of pollution, making it easier to operate the equipment in all weather conditions. UZKL installed as the roads and on the green zone. Depending on the height of the neck well, the variant with an elongated rod. Saratov colleagues proposed closure device compares favorably with other low weight, its versatility, reliability, ease of operation and low value. By using this UZKL, preventing all access by unauthorized persons in the mine communication cable wells and reservoirs to prevent theft, and ensures the safety of the equipment. When drilling holes use a drill with carbide inserts.
