INCLINE VILLAGE, NV / ACCESSWIRE / December 10, 2019 / American Battery Metals Corporation (OTCQB:ABML) (the "Company"), a premier battery metal exploration and development and battery recycling company based in Nevada, today commented on the planned joint venture between General Motors and LG Chem.
The American auto manufacturer and South Korean chemical and battery manufacturing company will invest $2.3 billion USD to build an electric vehicle battery cell plant in Ohio, creating one of the world's largest battery manufacturing facilities. The plant is projected to have a 30 gigawatt capacity.
"This is a significant announcement between two global companies," said American Battery Metals Corporation CEO Doug Cole. He continued, "When two giants like GM and LG invest this kind of money to create a battery manufacturing plant, it's a clear indicator that the explosive projections for the adoption of EV are accurate. And it is particularly noteworthy that they will build this factory in the United States."
American Battery Metals Corporation head of business development and government affairs, Doug Nickle, said "This announcement will not go unnoticed by investors in the lithium and battery metals markets. Depressed lithium prices, due to the "oversupply myth," will likely see a turnaround in 2020 as the world realizes that the massive demand projections for EV are real and will require much more EV battery grade lithium than is currently available."
As the EV and energy storage markets continue to experience seismic growth, new sources of battery metals need to be developed. American Battery Metals Corporation is uniquely positioned to address the existing supply chain shortages through the company's exploration and mining and battery recycling divisions. "We are aggressively working to develop both our primary sources of battery materials through environmentally-sustainable mining, and we are "re-mining" lithium ion batteries through our next-gen recycling process," said CEO Doug Cole.
ABMC will discuss the economic and national security implications of the electric revolution as it meets with American lawmakers and personnel from multiple government agencies this week in Washington, D.C.
