About Euro Manganese Inc.
Euro Manganese Inc. is a speciality chemicals company whose principal focus is advancing the development of the Chvaletice Manganese Project, in which it holds a 100% interest. The Company's goal is to become a leading, competitive and environmentally superior primary producer of high-purity manganese products in the heart of Europe, serving the electric vehicle battery industry, as well as other high-technology applications. The proposed Project entails re-processing a significant manganese deposit hosted in tailings from a decommissioned mine, strategically located in the Czech Republic, within the European Union. At the same time as the Project produces high-purity manganese it will be remediating the tailings area, which is a longstanding source of groundwater pollution.
