The first phase yielded manganese sulphate with a purity exceeding 99.95 % battery compliant with low levels of base and alkali metals using material from Battery Hill property. The company’s preliminary flow sheet utilized specific parameters from Battery Hill material and yielded a transformational result that makes our resource material compliant for the EV market amongst other verticals.The flow sheet incorporated leaching followed by solid-liquid separation, purification and crystallization. The next step phase of the project will focus in on flow sheet development to combine the steps identified into a complete process that will be efficient and cost effective. The company, together with Kemetco, will now continue to develop a commercializable flow sheet in order to produce ultra-high-purity battery-grade manganese products for the growing electric vehicle and energy storage sectors, using the safe and sustainable North American mineralization at Battery Hill. The estimated project time frame will be 12-16 weeks. Martin Kepman, CEO of Manganese X stated, “this next phase of work with Kemetco will bring us closer to become a future supplier of High Purity MnSO4 for the International and North American Markets. We are already in discussions with a number of interested parties and the intent is to offer a green, ethical and economical solution to existing North American battery themed enterprises that are currently challenged by sourcing and logistics in the Manganese space.”
