American Manganese Inc to Review Arizona Manganese Assets and Patents
Tesla Battery Day Brings Focus on Manganese
SURREY, September 17, 2020 - Larry W. Reaugh, President and Chief Executive Officer of American Manganese Inc. (TSXV:AMY)(OTC PINK:AMYZF)(FSE:2AM) ("AMY" or the "Company"), reports that the renewed interest in manganese compels the company to re-analyze their Artillery Peak low-grade manganese project. This entails studies of the 2012 Pre-Feasibility prepared by Tetra-Tech for the production of Electrolytic Manganese Metal (EMM) also studies on the production of high purity working Electrolytic Manganese dioxide (EMD) Prototype Lithium Ion Batteries by Kemetco Research Inc. The US Patents for this process were granted to the Company on June 11, 2013 which would later become the cornerstone of AMY's lithium-ion battery material recycling patents. The manganese patent was also granted in China, South Africa, and Canada.
The Prefeasibility Study was based on EMM whereas production of EMD is less expensive due to reduction of electroplating costs for EMD which is 20% of the cost of EMM and the footprint for mines is 60% of EMM footprint. The patented process is closed-loop with dry tailings and reuse of water.
