  • More manganese equals more EV batteries

    Shane Lasley, Data Mine North|Updated Sep 13, 2022

    Manganese-rich battery cathode recipes could stretch the other ingredients While not as talked about as other battery ingredients such as cobalt, lithium, and nickel, manganese is an important stabilizing ingredient in the cathodes of the nickel-manganese-cobalt lithium-ion batteries widely used in electric vehicles and electronics. "Their composition helps determine how long you can talk on the phone, how far you can drive an electric car, how fast a battery can recharge and... Full story

  • Manganese, 25th element on the periodic table, is used in alloys and batteries.

    Manganese X preps for Battery Hill pilot

    Shane Lasley, Mining News|Updated Jul 12, 2022

    Manganese X Energy Corp. is rapidly advancing plans to become a North American producer of manganese, an oft-overlooked metal critical to lithium-ion batteries. The company recently published a preliminary economic assessment that outlines a financially robust mine at its Battery Hill project in New Brunswick that would produce an average of 68,000 metric tons of battery-grade, high-purity manganese sulphate sulfate monohydrate (HPMSM) annually for 47 years. This long-lived...

    Niobium boosts lithium battery potential

    Shane Lasley, Metal Tech News|Updated Jul 12, 2022

    Niobium, a metal best known for its ability to strengthen steel, may also be the secret ingredient that allows lithium-ion batteries to live up to their full potential. One problem with the lithium-ion batteries powering electric vehicles, smartphones, laptops, power tools, and thousands of other applications is they lose nearly a fifth of their storage capacity the first time they are charged up. The reason for this loss is the formation of impurities on the nickel-rich...

    Battery-grade manganese from Battle Hill

    Shane Lasley, Metal Tech News|Updated Jul 10, 2022

    Manganese X Energy Corp. said recent tests have improved the efficiency and economics of recovering manganese from the exploration company's Battle Hill project in New Brunswick, Canada. Manganese is an increasingly important ingredient in lithium-ion and emerging battery technologies. "The demand for energy storage is too great for one technology to satisfy it, so we're looking for environmentally friendly, safe, inexpensive alternatives," said Jason Croy, a physicist at U.S....

    Solving the critical cobalt conundrum

    Shane Lasley, Data Mine North|Updated Sep 8, 2021

    The envisioned green future where every North American is driving a battery-powered electric vehicle charged with renewable energy could be undermined by cobalt, a somewhat scarce and controversial metal that makes lithium-ion batteries better. "Cobalt is considered the highest material supply chain risk for electric vehicles in the short and medium term," the U.S. Department of Energy penned in an April report. This risk has automakers, lithium-ion battery manufacturers, and... Full story
