WASHINGTON, D.C. – TheNewswire – April 1, 2022 – Western Magnesium Corporation (TSXV:WMG.V); (Frankfurt:3WM); (OTC:MLYF) (“Western Magnesium” or the “Company”)  Western Magnesium Corporation (WMC) is pleased to announce the majority of equipment has been delivered, and multiple trades are on site installing and testing the equipment as the Company’s commercial pilot plant is nearing completion. There are currently two final pieces of equipment to be delivered which are on schedule and will be accepted shortly. This is a major step as the Company works to produce 99.8% pure magnesium metal in the United States through a highly advanced technological process that continuously removes harmful byproducts before they are released into the environment. To streamline the construction process, WMC is commissioning each piece of equipment as it is installed, which requires significant coordination to ensure that all necessary equipment operates as anticipated and that all safety interlocks function properly.

Additionally, WMC has successfully passed acceptance testing for purchased equipment to date, demonstrating that the Company’s engineering design and procurement process have been followed with appropriate and diligent action. Furthering the successful engineering, reactor heating testing is now underway.

Executive Chairman Ed Lee states, “I am pleased that we are in the final stage of the commercialized pilot plant build out, this undertaking has required a methodical approach to ensure a safe and successful operation of our proprietary technology.”
