The Core Lithium Ltd (ASX: CXO) share price dumped its early gains on Tuesday before plunging into the red.

However, come Tuesday’s close, the Core Lithium share price finished at $1.265, 4.53% lower than its previous close.

Today was also a rough day for the broader market.

The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) and the All Ordinaries Index (ASX: XAO) both slipped lower. They fell 0.42% and 0.47% respectively as the cash rate was increased for the first time in years.

Let’s take a closer look at today’s news from Core Lithium.

What went wrong for the Core Lithium share price?

The Core Lithium share price’s initial gains turned sour on Tuesday. The stock’s rollercoaster performance followed the release of good news about the Finniss Lithium Project.

The Northern Territory’s Minister of Environment, Eva Lawler, has given the thumbs up to an underground mine at the project.

Now, the company will work to submit a mine management plan to the Department of Industry, Tourism, and Trade.

Core Lithium expects the first ore from the project to be on board ships at the end of 2022.

However, Core Lithium wasn’t the only ASX lithium share to trade in the red today.

It was joined by the likes of Argosy Minerals Limited (ASX: AGY), Mineral Resources Ltd (ASX: MIN), and Liontown Resources Ltd (ASX: LTR).
