RecycLiCo Battery Materials Demonstration Plant Testing Achieves Over 99% Leach Extraction of Lithium, Nickel, Cobalt, and Manganese from Lithium-ion Battery Production Scrap

RecycLiCo Battery Materials Demonstration Plant Testing Achieves Over 99% Leach Extraction of Lithium, Nickel, Cobalt, and Manganese from Lithium-ion Battery Production Scrap

American Manganese Inc (TSXV:AMY)(OTCQB:AMYZF)(FSE:2AM) ("Company"), doing business as RecycLiCo Battery Materials, a pioneer in advanced lithium-ion battery recycling and upcycling, and its R&D partner Kemetco Research Inc. ("Kemetco"), are pleased to announce that the leach section of its technology defining demonstration plant project has achieved over 99% extraction of lithium, nickel, cobalt, and manganese from lithium-ion battery production scrap

During the demonstration plant's leach stage testing, various operating parameters were investigated to determine the optimal conditions and collect data for ongoing commercial plant design and planning. Analysis of a range of leach data showed that the successful extraction results were achieved.

"I'm thrilled with the limits we have been able to push during this pivotal step of our demonstration plant project as it is core to our patented process and a limiting factor that defines the commercial design capacity," commented Zarko Meseldzija, CTO and Director of American Manganese. "The demonstration plant's growing number of achievements provides reliable technical data for third-party due diligence and checks many boxes regarding efficiency, capacity, and practicality that engages discussions regarding bespoke commercialization plans and influences successful commercial partnerships."

To date, the demonstration plant has leached a few metric tons worth of lithium-ion battery production scrap, the primary source of recyclable materials. The scrap material comes from losses in the battery cell manufacturing process due to incompliant quality. According to Benchmark Mineral Intelligence, battery scrap will account for 78% of the pool of recyclable materials in 2025 and remain a significant recyclable source beyond 2030.

Mr. Meseldzija added, "Given the scrap's intrinsic value, it can be viewed as a resource instead of waste material, and the battery manufacturers will ultimately dictate the supply of their scrap steams. However, with the increasing value and shortage of battery materials, battery manufacturers have a stronger incentive to recycle in-house. Integrating our patented process alongside battery production scrap sources could enable battery manufacturers to build an internal closed-loop supply chain that recovers scrap materials and introduces upcycled material back into battery re-manufacturing."

Lake Resources NL  Kachi Power Supply

Lake Resources NL Kachi Power Supply

Sydney, Australia (ABN Newswire) - Lake Resources N.L. (ASX:LKE) (FRA:LK1) (OTCMKTS:LLKKF) is pleased to announce the next milestone for the Kachi lithium brine project ("Kachi" or the "Project") in Catamarca Province, Argentina, having today signed a Letter of Intent ("LOI") with YPF Luz, a leading Argentine sustainable electric power generation company.

Under the LOI, Lake and YPF Luz will engage in exclusive non-binding discussions to evaluate and negotiate agreements relating to:

- The construction of the high voltage line by YPF Luz for power capacity for Kachi

- Delivery of the power supply by YPF Luz for Kachi

To support the power solution and create a binding commercial agreement, YPF Luz will perform the Front-End Engineering Design ("FEED") work for the proposed power delivery system. The FEED will be progressed through the remainder of 2024.

"After running a thorough process for the Kachi power solution, we are very pleased to enter into exclusive negotiations with YPF Luz," David Dickson, CEO of Lake, said.

"Establishing the delivery of a power solution for Kachi is a critical milestone for the development of this Project.

"We look forward to working together with YPF Luz, which has demonstrated expertise in bringing power to remote areas of Argentina and shares our commitment to sustainability.

"Both federal and state governments in Argentina are keen to see the responsible development of lithium exports to help with Argentina's balance of payments and foreign reserves, and getting power into the resource-rich provinces is a key part of this," Mr. Dickson said.

YPF Luz is co-owned by YPF, Argentina's largest energy company, and General Electric ("GE"), a global diversified industrial company. With a focus on renewable energy and social and environmental sustainability, YPF Luz is now the third largest generator of power in Argentina.

The signing of the LOI continues Lake's momentum following:

- The successful Equity Placement and Share Purchase Plan which strengthened Lake's balance sheet by providing additional working capital and financial flexibility to complete the strategic partner process ("the Process")

- The outreach to a wide array of potential strategic partners including car and battery manufacturers, lithium producers, oil and gas companies, sovereign wealth funds and private equity. The Process is expected to conclude in the second half of the year (2H CY24).

- Submission of the Production Environmental Impact Assessment ("EIA") for Kachi Phase One to the Catamarca Mining Authority. This is an important milestone for Kachi, and the culmination of extensive field work and community engagement completed over the past three years.

"We are also pleased with the strong institutional support we received during the recent capital raising, demonstrating their appreciation for our track record of delivering on our milestones, as well as their recognition of Kachi as a world class resource and globally significant project," Mr. Dickson said.
