Euro Manganese Inc. (EMN) announced that the Company’s technical team has significantly progressed the design, engineering, planning and permitting of a high-purity electrolytic manganese metal (HPEMM) and high-purity manganese sulphate monohydrate (HPMSM) demonstration plant (the DP) for the Chvaletice Manganese Project (the Project), which will produce multi-tonne, high-purity manganese finished product samples for customer testing and qualification.
EMN has entered into a fixed-price, turnkey contract with Changsha Research Institute for Mining and Metallurgy (CRIMM) for the supply and commissioning of a technology and equipment package for the DP. The contract includes performance guarantees, as well as commissioning services, laboratory set-up and an operator training program.
The appointment of BGRIMM Technology Group (BGRIMM) as a lead process plant engineer for the Project’s Feasibility Study, follows the evaluation of proposals from a shortlist of engineering and technology firms.
