Construction plans for battery metals recycling plant advance as expected
American Battery Metals Corporation (OTCQB:ABML) (“the Company”), an American-owned advanced extraction and battery recycling technology company with extensive mineral resources in Nevada, is pleased announce that its previously disclosed (on February 19, 2020) $10 million strategic investment infusion has been confirmed, as well as the expected timing of the full funding by April 19, 2020.
The significant strategic capital investment is from Newood Finance Solutions Limited, a Fiji corporation doing business as Unifinance Limited (“Unifinance), and an affiliate of VCM Group Pty Limited (“VCM”), the Company’s EPC, Engineering, Procurement, and Construction partner.
VCM Director, Ashley Walton, commented, “Despite the current global crisis sparked mainly due to the Russia-Saudi Oil price war and the current Coronavirus pandemic situation, which has caused extreme stress in global financial markets and banking systems, there has been no effect on our Unifinance business model and it does not put stress on our balance sheet or assets. Unifinance is not in a financial position that is affected by the extremes in the current market conditions and all financial commitments on offer or under offer or pre contract will be completed accordingly. We are truly pleased to partner with American Battery Metals Corporation and look forward to funding our $10 million commitment by April 19, 2020.”
With this new funding commitment, American Battery Metals Corporation is well-positioned to aggressively pursue its main areas of focus; lithium-ion battery recycling and its advanced extraction technology. American Battery Metals Corporation has assembled a talented team with vast experience in battery metals, state of the art recycling technology, extraction, and resource permitting. The VCM sourced funding provides important resources to realize American Battery Metals Corporation’s vision of becoming the world’s first fully integrated battery metals supply chain provider.
