MGX Minerals Inc. Announces Breakthrough in Development of High-Energy Lithium-Ion Batteries

MGX Minerals Inc. reported that its collaborative research partnership with the University of British Columbia ("UBC") has successfully developed a novel hybrid organic-inorganic material for use in engineering silicon interfaces. These interfaces will prove critical in achieving a highly efficient, long-lasting silicon anode that will aide in the development of next generation lithium-ion batteries capable of quadrupling energy density from the current standard of 100 Wh/kg up to 400 Wh/kg for use in long-range electric vehicles and grid-scale energy storage. In addition to developing silicon interfaces, MGX and UBC are also currently conducting process optimization on metallurgical grade silicon. The goal is to utilize low-cost metallurgical-grade silicon as a feedstock to fabricate nanostructured silicon.

MGX Minerals Inc. Announces Collaborative Research Partnership with The University of British Columbia

MGX Minerals Inc. reported that its collaborative research partnership with the University of British Columbia ('UBC') has completed a comprehensive baseline assessment of metallurgical silicon originating from each of the Company's three silicon projects in southeastern British Columbia. MGX and UBC are working together to develop next-generation Li-ion batteries capable of quadrupling energy density from current 100 Wh/kg up to 400 Wh/kg for use in long-range electric vehicles and grid storage. With the Phase One assessment completed, Phase two of the collaborative is now underway and will focus on developing a scalable process to upgrade metallurgical silicon originating from MGX's projects to battery-grade silicon anode. The developed silicon anode will serve as a viable replacement over the present graphite anode and enable higher-energy-density lithium-ion batteries for numerous applications, including electric vehicles, grid storage, telecommunication, wireless sensors and more.
