Petrolithium?

Did you know about this? I just found out about it the other day. Sounds fascinating, extracting lithium from oil and gas wells. Here's a link and here's another one.

Crude oil contains many heavy metals and also REE's and diamonds among other minerals and compounds. Companies have tried to extract the diamonds and heavy metals from it before including gold some have been successful in lab trials and pilot plants.

We have a mining division that has been developing technologies to process, purify and extract minerals and metals from crude oil, hydrocarbon streams and oilfield waste.

This sounds fascinating! Could you tell me more? How do diamonds end up in crude?
