“Any battery is processed by mining,” said American Manganese President and CEO Larry Reaugh in a recent interview with the Investing News Network. “We have a patent pending process that, because our ore is so friable, doesn't have heavy crushing or grinding in the process downstream to make the electrolytic-manganese dioxide or chemical-manganese dioxide. That omits a lot of the foreign — rogue — particles of metal.”
The company is currently seeking additional financing or a joint venture partner to help advance its research.
“The time has come now,” added Reaugh. “Certainly this Boeing Dreamliner crisis has focused a lot of attention on lithium-ion batteries. It gives us an opportunity to explain the differences and maybe toot our own horn a little bit about our product,” he said.
