Critical Materials: Silver and Manganese are Key in Electrification and Energy Transition

Nevada Silver Corporation (TSXV: NSC; OTCQB: NVDSF) Has Top-Tier Silver and Manganese Projects in the USA

Have you heard?

Advancing technology and mandated global climate policies are driving the transition towards the electrification of energy services. Electricity use is growing at double the pace of overall energy demand, led by the transportation sector. Alongside this, demand for renewable power is growing significantly, supported by a rise in energy storage deployment.

New sources and supplies of ‘electric metals’ that are characterized by high electrical conductivity such as silver, and rechargeable battery materials including manganese, are required to meet anticipated future demand.

The race to electrification has begun.

Nevada Silver’s flagship Corcoran Silver Project is located in Nye County, Nevada, and is situated near multiple historical and active gold and silver mines – including projects operated by Viva Gold and Kinross. NSC has recently expanded its land holding in Nevada to include the historic Belmont Silver Mining Camp, one of the earliest and richest silver mining camps in the Tonopah district. Nevada Silver’s manganese exploration efforts are located in Minnesota at the Emily Manganese Project. The Emily Project has the highest-grade manganese resource in North America, and is well-placed to supply an expanding US manganese market driven by a variety of technology, industrial and agricultural products.

Mineral Exploration in Nevada and Minnesota: Well-established, Mining-friendly and Highly Prospective Jurisdictions

Why Nevada and Minnesota?

Thanks to an established history of gold and silver mining, supportive regulations, and an abundance of mineral-rich deposits, Nevada is home to some of the most robust mining operations in the world. The Fraser Institute’s 2021 Annual Survey listed Nevada as one of the top jurisdictions in the world for investment based on their Investment Attractiveness Index, and a first place ranking in the USA.

Along with Nevada, Minnesota is one of the great mining jurisdictions in the United States – with world-recognized iron ore deposits that have been a key part of the state and the national economy for more than a century. Minnesota also has the highest-grade unmined deposit of manganese in North America at a time when the use and demand for the mineral continue to grow. 

Drilling at NSC’s Belmont Silver Project

Nevada Silver is thrilled to be the first company in over a century to be exploring at the historically rich and highly prospective, Belmont Silver Camp. Drills started turning in early July and the first batch of assay results have been announced. Assay results include an intersection of 440 g/t silver and 0.99% lead between 27.74-28.47 meters. The high-grade silver is included within a wider interval between 26.76-30.82 meters which averaged 134 g/t Ag and which forms part of a fault/crush zone that appeared to be trending at a high angle to the drill core.

Silver and Electrification

Silver has long been seen as a safe hedge investment, along with other precious metals such as gold. However, with the ongoing energy transition to battery-powered vehicles and sustainable technologies, silver’s value as an industrial and technology metal may soon outpace its value as a precious metal. Not only is silver a key component in electronics – from electric vehicles to wearable technology – but it is also critical to the production of photovoltaic panels that capture solar energy. As these technologies continue to increase in popularity, experts forecast increased demand for silver, as well. Domestic production of key minerals and metals continue to be priorities for the U.S., presenting unique opportunities for investors.

Silver’s biggest use is industrial, with demand driven by synchronized global economic growth and an uptick in technological usage.[1]1

Manganese and Energy Storage

While high-purity manganese currently only makes up 10% of the world’s manganese market by volume, it represents around 40% of global manganese market by value. Further, it is used in over half of existing lithium-ion battery cathode chemistries and applications are expected to grow through 2032 and beyond[2]2. With manganese’s increasing share of a burgeoning global lithium-ion battery market, the demand for high-purity manganese is slated to increase even more[3]3. This is especially relevant in light of increasing lithium-ion battery production costs and uncertainty over raw material supply. Manganese could significantly reduce the manufacturing cost of these batteries, as it can serve as a substitute or partial replacement for nickel and/or cobalt. All of these factors together bode well for manganese as a critical raw material in the energy transition.

    About Nevada Silver Corporation

    Nevada Silver Corporation (TSXV: NSC) (OTCQB: NVDSF) is a multi-commodity exploration and development company with two US-based exploration projects with NI 43-101 compliant mineral resources and an experienced, multidisciplinary technical team and board. The Company’s principal asset is the Corcoran Silver Project in Nevada, which has mineralization near-surface, is open in all directions, and has an Inferred Mineral Resource of 33.5 million silver-equivalent ounces. The Corcoran Silver Project has a number of high-priority exploration targets that provide excellent growth potential. In February 2022, NSC announced that it had acquired the historic Belmont Silver Project, which was among the earliest and richest silver mining camps in the Tonapah district, with an estimated ore head-grade averaging 25 ounces per ton of silver. In addition to Corcoran and Belmont, NSC has exclusive ownership and management rights over the Emily Manganese Project in Minnesota, USA. The Emily Project contains North America’s highest-grade manganese resource and has been the subject of considerable technical studies, with USD$24 million invested to date.

    ‍Forward-Looking Statements or Information Related to Exploration

    Relating to exploration, the identification of exploration targets and any implied future investigation of such targets on the basis of specific geological, geochemical and geophysical evidence or trends are future-looking and subject to a variety of possible outcomes which may or may not include the discovery, or extension, or termination of mineralization. Further, areas around known mineralized intersections or surfaces may be marked by wording such as “open”, “untested”, “possible extension” or “exploration potential” or by symbols such as “?”. Such wording or symbols should not be construed as a certainty that mineralization continues or that the character of mineralization (e.g. grade or thickness) will remain consistent from a known and measured data point. The key risks related to exploration, in general, are that chances of identifying economical reserves are extremely small.
