American Manganese Inc. Commences Testing of Lithium-Ion Battery Materials Recycling Pilot Plant


Successful Unit Operation Tests


Larry W. Reaugh, President and Chief Executive Officer of American Manganese Inc. (“American Manganese” or “AMY” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce that AMY’s processing partner, Kemetco Research, has commenced the processing of a select sample of cathode scrap material through Stages 1 and 2 of the Pilot Plant. The commencement of the pilot plant followed a HAZOP study and preliminary testing of all the unit operations in Stage 1 and Stage 2.


The complete five-stage Pilot Plant operation will progress as follows:


Stage 1 – Pre-treatment of cathode material

Stage 2 – Leach of active material

Stage 3 – Purification

Stage 4 – Recovery of base metals (e.g., nickel, cobalt, manganese)

Stage 5 – Lithium recovery and water recycle


“The commencement of the Pilot Plant operations marks a significant step in American Manganese’s quest to prove its patent-approved lithium-ion battery recycling technology.” said Mr. Norman Chow, President of Kemetco Research Inc. Kemetco is proud to partner with American Manganese in developing this innovative technology.


This is a great milestone for the Company as we work towards a complete lithium-ion battery recycling process. The Company is also anticipating an official U.S. Patent number for its recently approved patent application. The Company will continue to report on all future advancements,” said Mr. Reaugh.
