Martin Kepman, Ceo of Manganese X comments, “this patent was brought to us and because of timeliness and sheer relevance it was an opportunity we decided to pursue after exhaustive research. This system and method is a green, cleantech solution. While it is not obviously ore related or battery related, it does represent technology that is globally scalable. Our agenda as a public company is to leave no stone unturned in our pursuit at optimizing shareholder value. The company remains very much engaged in ore purification for the battery sector as well as continuing dialogue for battery research participation and equity ownership. We have great shareholders and our fiduciary obligation is to look for ways to enhance a return on investment.”
