Canadian Metals Focus on the Production of Ferrosilicon

MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - Feb. 4, 2015) - Canadian Metals Inc. ( The "Corporation") (CSE:CME) is pleased to announce has mandated the company ELECTROCHEM TECHNOLOGIES & MATERIALS INC. for identifying, qualifying and supervising several R&D facilities worldwide. The targeted world class institutions will have to provide installations for the semi-pilot and pilot scale production of ferrosilicon. The aim of the semi-pilot testing is to demonstrate the proof-of-concept and to prepare a preliminary economic assessment. Subsequently, the results and data that will be obtained from the pilot testing campaign such as the operating conditions, the figures of merit and performances, the process flow sheet and P&ID, the plant layout and the list of equipment will be used to refine the CAPEX and OPEX for a pre-feasibility study. The final study will dictate the best scenario for producing ferrosilicon in QC from the quartzite quarried at Langis. Ferrosilicon is a critical additive used as master-alloy for iron making and steelmaking.

ELECTROCHEM TECHNOLOGIES & MATERIALS INC. is primarily a R&D and technology development company that invents, develops, scales-up and commercializes proprietary metallurgical and electrochemical technologies that are innovative and sustainable. The company targeted global markets are the mining, mineral processing, metallurgical and chemical industries with a particular focus on the production of tantalum, niobium, and the recycling of heavy rare earths, the remediation, the regeneration and the treatment of mining residues, spent acids, pregnant leach solutions, end-of-life materials, metallurgical wastes, and industrial wastes. The company also conducts the highly specialized manufacture of industrial anodes for addressing the specific needs of its customers and to support its own electrowinning technologies worldwide. Since 2014, extensive piloting campaigns were conducted with industrial partners for the production of tantalum and niobium, along with the recycling of heavy rare earths from fluorescent lamps for future implementation.
