American Manganese advances AZ Artillery Peak Project Metallurgy

Resource Clips - essential news on junior gold mining and junior silver miningAmerican Manganese Inc TSXV:AMY announced an independent report by cleantech analysis firm Kachan & Co validating the hydrometallurgical process to be used at its Artillery Peak project in Arizona. The process uses commercially available equipment and maintains a low-cost, low-energy output while retaining a recovery rate of 92-93%% electrolytic-manganese metal at a purity of over 99.7%. Kachan’s Managing Partner Dallas Kachan said, “On paper and in pilot, American Manganese’s hydrometallurgical process is promising. The near closed-loop nature of the process appears to result in high-grade electrolytic manganese metal with little environmental impact and at a low cost. Proving the process at scale in the field will be the company’s biggest challenge, but early indications are encouraging.”

American Manganese President/CEO Larry Reaugh commented, “Kachan was commissioned to do an independent assessment of our hydrometallurgical process. Its findings illustrate how American Manganese has developed one of the most efficient models of mining low-grade manganese ore and producing low-cost, high-grade electrolytic manganese metal. To have a net positive report published by a leading cleantech analysis firm supporting our unique hydrometallurgical process is a huge success for American Manganese. We are encouraged to continue to work towards becoming the lowest cost producer of electrolytic manganese metal in the world.”
