- November 10th, 2016

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / November 10, 2016 / Larry W. Reaugh, President and Chief Executive Officer of American Manganese Inc. (TSXV:AMY; PINKS:AMYZF;FRANK:2AM), is pleased to announce that Phase 3 testing conducted by Kemetco Research Inc. (“Kemetco”) confirms that rechargeable lithium-ion battery coin cells can be successfully produced from lithium-cobalt cathode material regenerated using AMI’s proprietary process.

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / November 10, 2016 / Larry W. Reaugh, President and Chief Executive Officer of American Manganese Inc. (TSXV:AMY; PINKS:AMYZF;FRANK:2AM), is pleased to announce that Phase 3 testing conducted by Kemetco Research Inc. (“Kemetco”) confirms that rechargeable lithium-ion battery coin cells can be successfully produced from lithium-cobalt cathode material regenerated using AMI’s proprietary process.

The resulting lithium-ion button cell battery produced from AMI’s proprietary process was charged to a maximum of 4.2 volts and then discharged to a minimum of 2 volts. This charge-and-discharge test was repeated 10 times without the battery losing its chargeability.

Norm Chow, President of Kemetco says, “Based on these preliminary results, it can be concluded that the American Manganese upcycling technology can transform spent lithium-ion battery cathode material into high-purity intermediate products (e.g., lithium carbonate and cobalt carbonate) as well as into lithium-ion cathode material suitable for the fabrication of new batteries.”

“These results validate the AMI process,” said Mr. Reaugh. “With this final phase test work, we’ve taken lithium-ion battery cathode material from the recovered component metals through reconstitution of the cathode materials to produce working chargeable cells.”
