American Manganese Welcomes the Inclusion of EV Batteries in President Biden’s Executive Order Strengthening Critical Supply Chains
American Manganese is Developing Strategic Sources of Four U.S. Government-Listed Critical Minerals
Elevation of EV Battery Supply Chain Puts Spotlight on RecycLiCo's Rapid Development
AMY's Critical Mineral Work Has Support from Canadian Government Agency and Two Departments of the U.S. Government
SURREY, BC / February 24, 2021 / Larry W. Reaugh, President and Chief Executive Officer of American Manganese Inc. (TSXV:AMY)(OTC PINK:AMYZF)(FSE:2AM)("AMY" or the "Company"), is pleased to comment on U.S. President Joe Biden's Executive Order (EO) directing the strengthening of critical supply chains, which specifies "high-capacity batteries, including Electric Vehicle Batteries" as one of three key technology supply chains. The Biden Administration EO also identifies "critical minerals and other… strategic materials" as a fourth critical supply chain in its own right, building on Executive Order 13953 (September 30, 2020), in which former U.S. President Donald Trump declared a critical minerals "national emergency."
Through its patented RecycLiCo™ EV battery recycling technology and its work for the U.S. Department of Defense/Defense Logistics Agency investigating the production of Electrolytic Manganese Metal (EMM) from the Pentagon's low-grade Wenden (Arizona) Stockpile, AMY is developing strategic sources for four U.S.-listed Critical Minerals: lithium, cobalt, manganese and aluminum.
"With so much partisan wrangling at present, it would be easy to overlook what is now an emerging consensus bridging both political parties and both the U.S. Congress and the Executive Branch that key tech sectors like EV Batteries - and the critical minerals needed to make them - are essential to a nation's economy and security," said Mr. Reaugh.
