American Manganese Rechargeable Battery Recycling Progress Report:  Successful Metal Leaching of New Electric Battery Cathode Chemistries

American Manganese Rechargeable Battery Recycling Progress Report:  Successful Metal Leaching of New Electric Battery Cathode Chemistries

Data Supports AMI Process Patent Application, Projected for November 2017

Vancouver, BC (FSCwire) - Larry W. Reaugh, President and Chief Executive Officer of American Manganese Inc. (“American Manganese” or “AMI” or the “Company”), (TSX.V:  AMY; Pink Sheets:  AMYZF; Frankfurt:  2AM), is pleased to announce that Kemetco Research Inc. (Kemetco) has extractions approaching 100% for lithium, nickel, manganese, cobalt and aluminum from typical NCA (lithium, nickel, cobalt, aluminum), and LMO (lithium manganese dioxide) cathode material chemistries using AMI’s proprietary hydrometallurgical process.  These results are in addition to the previously announced extraction results from LCO (lithium, cobalt), August 4, 2016, and NMC (lithium, nickel, cobalt, manganese), April 11, 2017, cathode material chemistries.


Mr. Reaugh says, “The testing program has confirmed that all the commonly used rechargeable electric battery cathode materials can be leached using the Company’s hydrometallurgical process.  Lithium, cobalt, nickel, aluminum, and manganese can then be recovered by either discrete product or co-product precipitation, depending on which flowsheet is being used.”


Furthermore, the latest result after 10 locked-cycle runs for lithium recovered from discrete product precipitation for LCO material has increased to 92% from 87% previously announced on March 30, 2017.


“The test work is proceeding on schedule and on budget, and the results to-date are in line with our expectations,” says Mr. Norman Chow of Kemetco Research Inc.  He goes on to say, “The tests for the metal extractions and recoveries provide the data required to confirm the various process flowsheets for treating commercial cathode materials to be included in AMI’s final patent application, which we expect to submit by November of this year.”
