Major Success in Extra Fast Charging Battery Program Advances to Optimised Commercial Cells

Magnis Energy Technologies Limited is very pleased to announce that the game changing results announced on 24 July 2020 for EFC batteries, have progressed with a decision made to commence the program on optimised commercial cells developed by Magnis partner, Charge CCCV, LLC.

  • Following the ongoing success of Extra Fast Charging (EFC) results using unoptimised cells, for the next phase of Original Equipment Manufacturer (0EM) qualification, battery cells optimised for very fast charge will be used
  • Over 1000 charges have been conducted to date with capacity maintaining strength above 80%
  • EFC allows 85% charge in 6 minutes
  • A 12-month demonstration program funded by NYSERDA, which includes BAE Systems and Consolidated Edison on EFC batteries in Electric Buses begins
  • Major interest shown by overseas OEM’s

Magnis Energy Technologies Limited (“Magnis”, or the “Company”) (ASX:MNS) is very pleased to announce that the game changing results announced on 24 July 2020 for EFC batteries, have progressed with a decision made to commence the program on optimised commercial cells developed by Magnis partner, Charge CCCV, LLC. (“CCV”).

EFC Results

Cycling results from an unoptimised commercial size cell to date, using CCV technology, has produced exciting results, with the cycling life retention over 1000 cycles, with a 6 minute charge and 1 hour discharge. The unoptimised cell is within 99% energy density of a regular energy cell, which means minimal energy density loss for a super fast charge cell. Following the exciting results, a decision has been made to commence testing of EFC on optimised composition of commercial cells.

Battery cells optimised for very fast charging are required to maximise charging energy efficiency, battery life and, most importantly, safety. Magnis technology partner, CCV, is at the forefront of this technology development and has been working with end users including commercial EV manufacturers, to develop a future proof design for EFC batteries, with a focus on low cost and sustainable supply chain. Several European OEM’s have expressed interest in the technology with initial discussions being undertaken in recent weeks, with confidentiality agreements having been executed.

New York Demonstration Program

A demonstration program in New York has commenced for a Public Transit Technology and Innovation Program funded by NYSERDA, with a proposal to develop EFC system utilising extended—life batteries provided by CCV with its BMLMP technology.

The technology in planned to be developed in Binghamton, New York US, and tested at BAE Systems before being installed for some New York City bus routes. The plan is to remove 50D,D00 metric tons of carbon dioxide annually from the New York City metro area, whilst increasing energy efficiency and lowering upfront costs versus the current system.

Consolidated Edison will be responsible for charging, with bus stops equipped with robotic arms that have the ability reach down from the overhead electric wires and connect to the buses’ batteries to recharge them in 5 to 10 minutes.

Magnis Chairman Frank Poullas commented: “The response from our fast charging announcement has been amazing with a number of major OEM’s contacting Magnis with discussions having kicked off.”

“Today’s announced results are another step forward in this exciting technology and we look forward to receiving the results from the commercial cell program in the near future.”

Novo Completes Malmsbury Option Exercise with GBM Resources Limited

Novo Resources Corp. (“ Novo ” or the “ Company ”) (TSX: NVO & NVO.WT; OTCQX: NSRPF) is pleased to advise that it has completed its option exercise to earn a 50% interest in the Malmsbury gold project (the “ Malmsbury Project ”) held by ASX-listed GBM Resources Limited (ASX: GBZ) (“ GBM ”) following the satisfaction of all conditions precedent, including receipt of Australian Foreign Investment Review Board approval (refer to the Company’s news releases dated March 30, 2020 September 24, 2020 and January 15, 2021 for further details).

“We are thrilled to complete our option exercise at Malmsbury,” commented Dr. Quinton Hennigh, Chairman and President of Novo. “We see Malmsbury as a Fosterville analogue given its similar position along the eastern margin of the prolific Bendigo Zone, epizonal orogenic setting and historic high-grade gold production. Our geologic team will pursue aggressive field work over the next few months with the goal of developing drill targets for testing later this year.”

Rare Earth Elements Demand is Still Growing

Rare Earth Elements are 17 silvery-white heavy metals with special magnetic capabilities. REEs have diverse applications and are commonly used in lasers, glass, superconductors, hard drives, wind turbine generators, and magnetic materials. Despite the name, REEs are abundant in the world, often found underground alongside uranium in sand structures called monazite. REEs concentrate must first be separated from the sand. Neodymium and praseodymium (NdPr) represent about 80% of the value of REE concentrate. Demand for these elements is growing because of their use in electric vehicles, wind turbines, and appliances. Adams Intelligence expects the demand for NdPr to double in the next five years. Removing REEs from monazite and then separating REEs into individual components is a complicated process.
