SURREY, BC / ACCESSWIRE / November 19, 2020 / American Manganese Inc. (TSXV:AMY)(OTC PINK:AMYZF)(FSE:2AM) ('AMY' or the 'Company') is pleased to announce the launch of a project focused on advancing the Company's lithium-ion cathode recycling technology (RecycLiCo™) with support from the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC IRAP).

NRC IRAP will provide advisory services and conditional funding to support American Manganese's research and development project on the Synthesis of Cathode Material Precursors from Recycled Battery Scrap between November 4, 2020 and March 31, 2021.

The main objective of the project is to conduct a technical feasibility study on the synthesis of cathode material precursors with specific particle parameters. American Manganese also acquired a specialized cathode precipitation reactor to achieve the Company's objective in producing high-value final cathode products with the least amount of processing steps, as discussed in the November 6, 2020 news release.

'We are proud to receive this support from NRC IRAP and we believe this project will continue to build on the success of our pilot plant project and intellectual property,' said Larry Reaugh, President and CEO of American Manganese. 'We are thrilled to kick-off this project on the production of cathode precursor materials. Our existing patents, for recycling lithium-ion cathode material, offers high extraction and purity potential and this project's intellectual property development could continue to strategically differentiate the Company's commercial offering.'

Cathode material used in the electric vehicles industry such as, lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxide (NMC) and lithium cobalt aluminum oxide (NCA) have strict material quality parameters. The production of these modern cathodes from raw materials is a highly specialized and energy-demanding process, but the successful production of these materials is a significant value-added step. Therefore, it is the goal of this project to enable American Manganese's process to efficiently and directly recycle cathode scrap material into cathode material precursor to maximize the value of the recycled product.
