Element 25 warms to pre cathode material production plant

A feasibility study for manganese miner Element 25 has demonstrated ‘compelling economics’ for the proposed first ever US based battery grade high purity manganese sulphate monohydrate (HPMSM) facility planned by the company. HPMSM is required for the production of pre-cathode active materials (pCAM) used in EV batteries. The proposed facility would take manganese from the…
