Halifax, Nova Scotia--(Newsfile Corp. - December 1, 2021) - Metalo Manufacturing Inc. (the "Issuer") (CSE: MMI) announced today that it has filed its annual audited consolidated financial statements and management discussion and analysis for the year ended June 30, 2021. They are available under the Corporation's profile on SEDAR www.sedar.com and on the CSE www.thecse.com.
MMI's two project assets - pig iron production and an application for the sands in Labrador - are advancing with potential joint venture partners experienced in the final products. While potentially seeing a dilution of the project asset shareholdings, the focus will shift to advancing the opportunities sooner with established and experienced operating partners and brand recognition. The highest value for the sands is in value-add end products, through combining the minerals with clean energy. The applications of the sands with potential partners include sanitaryware production, tableware production, 3D printing of sand cast molds for foundries, glass containers, glass tubes (vials), and silicon carbide (expected to surpass silicon in electric vehicles, batteries, solar energy systems, and data centers). All targeted products are not currently manufactured anywhere in Canada, where there were glass and ceramic imports of US$4 billion in 2020. Additionally, efforts to engage on the last stage of permitting for the pig iron plant are currently underway and the process is expected to commence soon. Government officials have continued to be supportive.
