Black Mass Tests Achieve 99% Leach Extraction Efficiency for Lithium, Nickel, Cobalt, and Manganese
SURREY, BC / ACCESSWIRE / August 24, 2021 /( )(OTCQB:AMYZF)(FSE:2AM) (“AMY” or the “Company“) is pleased to report the successful upcycling of lithium-ion battery black mass into NMC-622 (nickel-manganese-cobalt oxide) cathode precursor, using AMY’s RecycLiCo™ closed-loop process. The black mass feedstock was produced by mechanical size reduction of end-of-life lithium-ion batteries, resulting in a powder substance that contains critical battery materials, including lithium, cobalt, nickel, and manganese, as well as copper, aluminum, and graphite. American Manganese sourced and tested the samples of black mass from an electric vehicle manufacturer for demonstration of the RecycLiCo™ process and validation of its products.
Lab-scale testing of the black mass samples demonstrated a 99% leach extraction efficiency of lithium, nickel, manganese, and cobalt. The resulting pregnant leach solution (PLS) was then adjusted to the desired ratio of nickel, manganese, and cobalt before the direct co-precipitation of the NMC-622 cathode precursor. As seen in the Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) scans, the RecycLiCo™ NMC-622 product shares the same high-quality technical specifications – such as particle morphology, size, and distribution – found in conventional lithium-ion battery cathode precursor materials produced from mined raw materials.

“RecycLiCo™ is a critical resource solution, not waste disposal. Our focus is more than just breaking down waste material. We have been focused on the upcycling of waste lithium-ion battery cathode materials to create useful, high-value products and I’m proud to demonstrate our processing efficiency to industry leaders that recognize the potential benefits of integrating RecycLiCo™ alongside their facilities,” said Larry Reaugh, President and CEO of American Manganese. “Our continued success in upcycling EV battery production scrap and black mass broadens our business strategy and potential for strategic partners.”
American Manganese offers an advanced upcycling solution of cathode waste – from battery manufacturing scrap and end-of-life lithium-ion batteries – into cathode precursors with one closed-loop process, as seen in the figure below. Therefore, reducing traditional battery supply chain complexity, cost, and pollution. Compared to competing recycling technologies that create lower-value products, the RecycLiCo™ closed-loop and integrated processing strategy offers a more practical, cost-effective, and efficient solution for achieving a circular economy.

Nevada Copper Provides Update on Operational Advances
YERINGTON, Nev., Nov. 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nevada Copper Corp. (TSX: NCU) (OTC: NEVDF) (FSE: ZYTA) (“Nevada Copper” or the “Company”)…
YERINGTON, Nev., Nov. 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —( ) (OTC: NEVDF) (FSE: ZYTA) (“Nevada Copper” or the “Company”) today provided an update on its operations, including advances at the Company’s underground mine at its Pumpkin Hollow Project (the “Underground Mine”) and an update on its 2022 development plan.
Underground Mine Operations Highlights
- Lateral Development Rates Continue to Rise. The Company has advanced approximately 760 lateral equivalent feet in the past 30 days, a 20% increase in average daily footage from the previous 30 days. Lateral development continues on multiple headings, providing access to ore mining zones in the East South orebody and advancing development towards the East North orebody.
- Sugar Cube to be Blasted Shortly. The high-grade Sugar Cube zone is planned to be drilled in December and mining is expected to commence in early Q1 2022. This will be the first stope mined in the East North orebody, which is expected to have higher quality ground conditions and significantly larger stope sizes.
- Processing Plant Operating Well. The mill continues to run at design specifications with the grinding, flotation, thickening, and concentrate filtration circuits performing well mechanically. The Company anticipates increased production and recovery rates with the addition of the Sugar Cube zone to the processing plant’s ore feed in Q1 2022.
- Surface Ventilation Fans on Schedule. The surface ventilation fans are on schedule to arrive on site in approximately 3 weeks with installation and commissioning expected to be completed on time in line with the demands of the mine plan.
2022 Development Plan Update
- Open Pit Drilling and Progressing. With additional funding received from the Company’s recent public equity offering, the Company intends to undertake an infill drilling campaign and to update its open pit studies to reflect opportunities for increased scale, larger resource and other optimization workstreams. Further updates on the Company’s 2022 development plan will be released shortly.
“I am pleased with the operational advances we have achieved this month, as we build on the progress from Q3,” stated Randy Buffington, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our development rates continue to increase on a weekly basis and will soon provide access to the larger high-grade stopes, which is expected to result in increased ore feed delivered to our fully operational processing plant for a step further in our ramp-up progression.”
The technical information and data in this news release was reviewed by Greg French, C.P.G., VP Head of Exploration of Nevada Copper, and Neil Schunke, P.Eng., a consultant to Nevada Copper, who are non-independent Qualified Persons within the meaning of NI 43-101.
