Magnis Energy: NY Battery Plant – Major Milestones Completed

Magnis Energy Technologies Limited is pleased to announce that iM3NY has recently completed major milestones relating to its New York Battery Plant.

  • Detailed engineering and facility pre-work completed on the New York Battery Plant
  • Reports commissioned at the request of three prospective investors have been finalised for their due diligence process
  • Potential financiers have provided Non-Binding term sheets and a LOI, but COVID-19 pandemic is delaying funding closure
  • Sale of a portion of the nickel foam purchased as part of the plant acquisition, nets iM3NY over AUD$500,000

Magnis Energy Technologies Limited (“Magnis”, or the “Company”) (ASX:MNS) is pleased to announce that iM3NY has recently completed major milestones relating to its New York Battery Plant. Detailed engineering of plant, process optimisation, cost estimation and facility design works have recently been completed at the request of three prospective project financiers as part of their due diligence process.

Detailed Engineering and Due Diligence

Over the past six months, three major reports were commissioned and completed to refine project works, schedules and costs for due diligence by prospective financiers. Detailed engineering work was completed by Dutch Engineering giant, Ramboll Group (“Ramboll”), and a large independent consulting firm was hired by a potential investor to complete the financial, technical and business due diligence of iM3NY.

A project team of close to twenty people from Dutch Engineering giant Ramboll (“Ramboll”), with C4V (Magnis battery partner) and iM3NY has performed this recent work covering plant layout, facility and utility design, safety, environment, process, inventory management and operations. An independent valuation completed by O’Brien & Gere, a wholly owned subsidiary of Ramboll, valued the equipment at US$71.34 Million (A$105.5 Million), with Magnis ownership at over 50% in the project.

The three prospective investors include a well-known global financial institution and a green investment fund. All three groups have provided iM3NY with non-binding agreements and a Letter of Intent (LOI) to showcase their serious interest.

Magnis Chairman, Frank Poullas, commented: “We are working hard towards closure of funding for the New York battery plant and with significant interest demonstrated from several parties, this process continues to be expedited. Whilst delays have been experienced due to COVID-19, the emerging thematic of national security through domestic manufacture has generated new interest for government and investment community. In recently completed due diligence programs, over 1,000 documents were compiled in a data room created for all stakeholders including prospective investors.”

Working Capital

To provide iM3NY with additional working capital, a portion of the nickel foam system, which is not required for future operations in the New York Battery Plant, was recently sold for over AUD$500,000.

This announcement has been authorised for release by the Board of Magnis Energy Technologies Ltd. For further information:

Australia’s 5 Most Valuable Mineral Exports

Australia’s economy is largely based on its natural resources, with the minerals sector making the greatest contribution to the nation’s exports.

Four of Australia’s states and territories rank in the top 20 mining jurisdictions in the world, according to the Fraser Institute’s latest annual survey of mining companies: Western Australia (fourth), Southern Australia (seventh), Queensland (16th) and the Northern Territory (19th).

These mining jurisdictions demonstrate a high level of investment attractiveness mainly due to their mineral-rich geology, solid infrastructure, stellar economic environment and government support for the resources industry at both the federal and state level.

Newcrest Mining Limited – Exploration Update 10 June 2021

Highlights

  • At Red Chris, drilling continues to expand the higher grade mineralisation intersected at East Ridge and in the Main Zone:
    • At East Ridge, the new discovery adjacent to the East Zone, drilling continues to expand the footprint of the higher grade mineralisation with RC688 returning 344m @ 0.70g/t Au & 0.75% Cu from 776m, incl. 170m @ 1.1g/t Au & 1.1% Cu from 892m. This hole is 100m east of the discovery hole RC678 (previously reported).
    • East Ridge is located 300m east of East Zone and outside of Newcrest's Red Chris Mineral Resource Estimate. Drilling to define the extent of the higher grade mineralisation is ongoing.
    • In the Main Zone, drilling has intersected high grade mineralisation with RC683 returning 300m @ 0.41g/t Au & 0.51% Cu from 260m, incl. 114m @ 0.67g/t Au & 0.85% Cu from 390m, incl. 22m @ 1.1g/t Au & 1.4% Cu from 464m. This hole is 100m east of RC679 (previously reported).
    • Main Zone has the potential for further higher grade mineralisation beneath and to the south west of the open pit.
