Euro Manganese Inc. (EMN on TSX-V and ASX; EUMNF on OTCQX) is a Canadian public company focused exclusively on the development of a new high purity manganese production facility, based on the recycling of a tailings deposit located in the Czech Republic.
With the development of the Chvaletice Manganese Project in the heart of Europe, we aim to establish a reliable producer of very high purity electrolytic manganese metal and manganese sulfate to satisfy the needs of sophisticated producers of lithium-ion battery precursor materials, as well as specialty steel and aluminum alloys. Given the recent technological developments and the anticipated growth in electric vehicle demand, as well as the quality and ideal location of the Chvaletice Manganese Project, we are very well positioned to play an important role in this industry. We stand to become a leading international producer of high purity manganese products, as well as Europe’s only primary producer of these products.
We have assembled a stellar team with deep manganese processing experience, and have invested over $30 million into the project to date, including fully quantifying and qualifying the entire resource, running a pilot plant, and much more. The project’s feasibility study and permitting are advanced, as are discussions with prospective customers.
With European automakers and battery manufacturers accelerating their plans to embrace e-mobility, and the EU’s increasingly stringent sustainability requirements for battery raw materials, the Chvaletice Manganese Project is in the right place, at the right time.
