American Manganese Inc. (TSX.V:AMY) (OTC-US:AMYZF) (FSE:2AM) said its president and chief executive officer, Larry W. Reaugh has presented a new company video, which will be used to apply for the Disrupt Mining competition.
The diversified specialty and critical metal company said the competition’s finalists will pitch their competing innovations to a “shark tank”- style panel of cross-industry titans at a live finale event held in March 2019 during the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada’s (PDAC) annual convention.
The company noted that Disrupt Mining is a competition aimed at accelerating the pace of innovation in the mining sector by thinking differently and seeking cross-sector collaboration.
It said Disrupt Mining aims to be a catalyst for accelerating innovation; for coming up with new ideas that tackle problems more efficiently and productively; and for bridging the gap between mining and technology.
Zarko Meseldzija, American Manganese’s chief technical officer commented: “We believe AMY’s patent-pending battery recycling technology disrupts the mining industry by creating a circular economy approach to the battery metals supply chain and by reducing the reliance on mining operations around the world for sourcing metals”.
