Facedrive Inc. (" Facedrive ") (TSXV: FD), (OTC:FD) a Canadian "people-and-planet first" technology ecosystem, is pleased to announce that TraceSCAN, the COVID-19 contact tracing solution developed by Facedrive Health, will be implemented as a pilot project (the " Implementation ") by the Waywayseecappo First Nation (" Waywayseecappo ") located in Western Manitoba. Waywayseecappo is an Ojibway First Nation and member of the Dakota Ojibway Tribal Council. First Nations have been hit by the pandemic outbreak especially hard, and Waywayseecappo is taking a hands-on approach in implementing a cutting-edge technological solution to combat the advance of COVID-19 virus in their community. Upon completion of the pilot, the Company's intention is for the Implementation to serve as a blueprint for other First Nations.

First Nations communities are seeing an alarming increase in the number of newly reported cases of COVID-19 during the second wave of the pandemic, with 1,071 new cases reported in the week ending December 5 th, 2020 alone ( https://www.newswire.ca/news-releases/government-of-canada-covid-19-update-for-indigenous-peoples-and-communities-866503022.html ). Technologies such as Facedrive's TraceSCAN contact-tracing solution can play a particularly crucial role among communities afflicted by a lack of resources or healthcare facilities. Moreover, many First Nations communities have data connectivity issues, rendering app-based solutions considerably less effective. However, TraceSCAN's cutting-edge Bluetooth wearable technology enables it to perform the contact tracing function without use of a mobile device.

The Implementation is expected to begin prior to the end of the year, and is expected to last at least 30 days. The engagement with Waywayseecappo comes immediately on the heels of Phil Fontaine's appointment as a Strategic Advisor to Facedrive to help further the company's ESG mandate across its health, rideshare, food delivery, marketplace and communication platform verticals. An aboriginal Canadian leader and former three-term National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations, Mr. Fontaine is an articulate advocate for the future of Canada's indigenous peoples. Mr. Fontaine will continue to play an essential role in liaising with the Waywayseecappo community and communicating the needs of the reservation to Facedrive. Should TraceSCAN be implemented by other First Nations communities, it is expected that Mr. Fontaine will also play a similar role.

"We are happy to offer the TraceSCAN contact-tracing services to the Waywayseecappo First Nation, it is the first Indigenous nation to implement our wearable solution to protect its citizens and help stop the spread of COVID-19. We realize the responsibility and importance of equipping each and every Canadian with adequate response tools to promote health and safety as the second wave of the pandemic intensifies," said Sayan Navaratnam, Chairman and CEO of Facedrive. "As an ESG ecosystem, we see our critical mission in offering essential and time-critical health solutions to the vulnerable strata of our society. Upon successful execution of this pilot project, we see massive potential to offer the TraceSCAN technology to over 1.6M Indigenous community citizens in Canada alone".

American Manganese Inc. (TSXV:AMY)(OTCQB:AMYZF)(FSE:2AM) ("AMY" or the "Company") has selected Minviro Ltd. ("Minviro"), a UK-based and globally recognized sustainability and life cycle assessment consultancy, to conduct a life cycle assessment (LCA) of the company's battery recycling-upcycling process, RecycLiCo

LCA is a standardized, scientific method for quantifying the direct and embodied environmental impacts associated with a particular product or process. By considering all material and energy inputs (scope 1, 2 and 3 CO2 emissions), LCAs provide a detailed account of a project's environmental footprint that can help guide transparent discussions on climate change, carbon neutralization, water use impacts, human health impacts, and land use. Furthermore, life cycle assessments can highlight environmental hotspots in production processes and support strategies to reduce impacts for future development.
