Battery metals firm American Battery Metals Corporation has opened a chemistry and research laboratory to analyse data on its vanadium and lithium mining claims and drill sites.
The Nevada, US, miner will conduct in-house research and analysis before, during, and after its work in the field.
The new laboratory enables senior chemical staff to analyse samples and data, and apply solutions across the spectrum of its vertical integration strategies, said the company’s chief executive officer, Doug Cole.
He said: “Having our own, independent laboratory is a significant differentiator from other companies, and it is of momentous importance for us. Our team is able to conduct timely analysis without having to wait on an outside laboratory to process our data.”
The laboratory is scalable and ready for growth as the company develops its extraction and battery recycling technologies.
The firm is researching and exploring solutions and products for recycling battery raw materials and the different type of metallurgical unit processing.
