Emily Manganese District
The Emily Manganese Project is located in the Emily District of the Cuyuna Iron Range in Crow Wing Country, central Minnesota. The Cuyuna has a rich mining history, having supplied the majority of U.S. manganese, and contains the highest-grade source of manganese found in North America. High-grade manganese was first discovered in the Emily District around 1910, with exploration advanced by Pickens Mather and U.S. Steel in the 1930s-1950s.
After peaking in 1953, iron ore mining has ceased at the Cuyana Iron Range, but high-grade manganese remains.

Confirmed Highest Grade Manganese Resource in North America
The Emily Manganese Project consists of 368 acres of mineral rights with access to adjacent land exceeding 500 acres. There are targeted zones for resource expansion on these additional lands, as well as at depth. The existing resource at Emily was derived from only seven drill holes within a much larger area of manganese-iron deposition, pointing to significant upside potential from the drill program now underway.
Historical drilling by Pickands Mather and US Steel in the 1940s and 1950s intercepted significantly higher grades and a former mine plan indicates significant additional tonnage available adjacent to the current resource.

The Emily Manganese Project has Been the Subject of Significant Investment
Over $US26 million has been invested in Emily resulting in a number of important technical and environment baseline studies, exploratory drilling, process development and a pilot processing plant, including transport and storage facilities and local infrastructure. Furthermore, the project benefits from readily available power and natural gas resources, while its strategic location provides convenient access to major highways, ports and airports.

High-Grade Intercepts up to 48.5% Mn in Current Drill Program
In February 2023, Electric Metals commenced a planned 30-hole drilling program designed to test and confirm historic drilling by US Steel and others, and add significant tons to the existing NI 43-101 mineral resource. Results received to date include intercepts up to 48.5% Mn (62.6% MnO) with 13 intercepts above 40% Mn (51.6% MnO).
High-Purity Manganese Demand Expected to Grow Dramatically
Manganese is not a material in short supply, in fact it is one of the most abundant elements on the planet. But not all manganese is fit for processing to a material suitable for battery applications. That’s important given that almost half of today’s lithium-ion batteries include manganese, and projections have that figure jumping jumping above 60% by 2030 (COM, 2023).
Global Li-B demand forecasts that more high-purity manganese mines and processing plants are required than for any other battery metal. More than 100 new projects producing 30,000t of HPMSM are required to meet forecast demand. Approximately fifteen projects are in the pipeline globally, nine of which are in China (CPM, April 2023).
Major EV, cell and cathode material producers are committed to increasing manganese in existing battery chemistries, as well as emerging high-manganese formulations. Major automakers including Stellantis, Ford, Volkswagen, Renault, Tesla, Nissan and Mitsubishi have also committed to manganese-based batteries. This group makes 31 million cars annually, and their batteries will require high-purity manganese materials.
Manganese Demand Supported by Emerging Chemistries

US Perspective: The Great Raw Material Disconnect
US legislation such as the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) is a huge boost to stimulating domestic cell and battery demand. But, around half of IRA compliant critical materials come from unreliable foreign sources, with China maintaining its dominance over chemical conversion (Benchmark Mineral Intelligence). With no manganese mine supply in North America, and with high-purity manganese demand accelerating as the US battery market continues to grow, governments and regulators remain committed to building a domestic US lithium-ion supply chain.

5 Reasons Why Electric Metals Should Be on Your Radar...
The company is focused on manganese, an energy-dense metal that promises to play a leading role in the rapidly growing electric vehicle and energy storage industries for the foreseeable future.
Electric Metals’ flagship Emily Project is the highest grade manganese resource in North America. No manganese is currently produced in the U.S. or Canada, and the U.S. is committed to establishing domestic manganese supply. According to Statista, South Africa, the African country of Gabon, and China produce two-thirds of the world’s manganese.
Electric Metals commenced a 30-hole drilling program in early February 2023. If the assay results from that program show bonanza-grade manganese over a large area of the Emily Project, the resource may be larger than the current estimate. Over the next twelve months, the company expects to issue a revised NI 43-101 resource estimate. Also, the Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) will be based on that new estimate as well as other test work and studies being undertaken.
Electric Metals’ experienced team has a track record of exploration success, mine development and M&A.
Equally important, Electric Metals’ Board of Directors and management own almost one-third of the company, far higher than insider ownership stakes at most junior mining companies.
