Installation of Key Equipment for Stage 1 and 2 of Pilot Plant Now Complete

CEO: AMY’s Battery Material Recycling Effort “On Time and On Target”

Larry W. Reaugh, President and Chief Executive Officer of American Manganese Inc. (“American Manganese” or “AMY” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce that Kemetco Research’s sub-contractor has installed key pieces of equipment for the Pilot Plant and is ready to move into their facility for testing of Stages 1 and 2 in the new year.  “We’re on time and on target,” said CEO Larry Reaugh.    

AMY’s patent-approved technology is to be demonstrated with the closed-loop system at a planned processing rate of 1kg/hr. The Company will be processing the received one metric tonne of pre-production cathode scrap material (500kg of NMC and 500kg of NCA), as per our October 10, 2018 press release.  AMY’s patent-approved process will recover nickel, manganese, aluminum, cobalt and lithium.

“I would like to wish our shareholders a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year”, said Mr. Reaugh. “For as much progress as we have made in 2018, I think this coming year will be very exciting and prosperous for the company and our shareholders.”
