(TSXV:AMY; OTC US:AMYZF;FSE:2AM) (“AMY” or the “Company”) is pleased to report the Company’s progress on recent innovations developed for advancing the Company’s intellectual property portfolio for recycling lithium ion batteries:

1.  A chemical method of detaching aluminum foil from active cathode compounds has been developed;

2.  A novel gravity separation method has been developed to separate the detached aluminum foil from the active cathode compounds into separate streams;

3.  A novel mineral processing method has been developed to separate residual carbon, graphite, copper and aluminum from shredded and heat-treated batteries sourced from a European recycler.

4.  A novel hydrometallurgical treatment was developed to remove fluoride originating from the electrolyte in shredded and heat-treated batteries sourced from a European recycler.

5.  A novel method to concentrate lithium was developed that will be integrated into the flowsheet which will reduce the number of steps and equipment required for AMY’s flowsheet.
