WASHINGTON, D.C. TheNewswire February 8, 2023 Western Magnesium Corporation (WMC) (TSXV:WMG); (Frankfurt-3WM); (OTC:MLYF) (“Western Magnesium” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the Commercial Pilot Plant is ready to move into the final stage of continuous metal production.  

All necessary required mechanical upgrades identified during the initial optimization reactor runs have been completed, proving successful metal processing capabilities. The Commercial Pilot Plant will be ready to enter a continuous phase setting the stage for continuous metal production.  

Executive Chairman, Ed Lee, states “After the successful initial run, we are confident moving into the continuous phase. This is an exciting time as we have been able to show success with initial optimization runs.”

Executive President and CEO, Sam Ataya, states “We have been in discussions with multiple end users about metal production from our commercial pilot plant. Due to demand being very high and magnesium metal availability being scarce globally, and particularly in the United States, discussions with the end users have been escalated and we are working with end users to supply magnesium metal from our Commercial Pilot Plant.”

About Western Magnesium

Western Magnesium’s goal is to be a low-cost producer of green, primary magnesium metal, a strategic commodity prized for its strength and light weight. Unlike outdated and costly production processes, Western Magnesium looks to use a continuous silicothermic process to produce magnesium, which significantly reduces labor and energy costs relative to current methods and processes, while being environmentally friendly.
