GREENWICH, Conn., Jan. 06, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American Battery Materials, Inc. (OTC Pink: BOXS) (“ABM”, the “Company”) an environmentally responsible minerals exploration and development company focused on direct lithium extraction (DLE) and other critical minerals for the global energy transition, has engaged international investor relations specialists MZ Group (“MZ”) to lead a comprehensive strategic investor relations and financial communications program across all key markets.

MZ Group will work closely with ABM management to develop and implement a comprehensive capital markets strategy designed to increase the Company’s visibility throughout the investment community. The campaign will highlight how ABM is focused on DLE, a cost-effective, efficient, and environmentally friendly method of production, during the early stages of a global lithium super cycle forecasted to expand significantly over the coming decades. ABM owns 120 mineral rights across 2,040 acres with 7 historic wells and existing infrastructure in Lisbon Valley, Utah, positioning the Company to benefit from the Department of Energy’s classification of lithium as a critical mineral in the U.S. and allocation of over $7.0 Billion for exploration, extraction and processing under the recently announced American Battery Material Initiative (a DOE led initiative to bolster battery materials supply chain in the country).


MZ has developed a distinguished reputation as a premier resource for institutional investors, brokers, analysts and private investors and maintains offices worldwide. Brooks Hamilton, Director at MZ North America, will lead the MZ team advising ABM in all facets of investor relations including the coordination of roadshows and investment conferences across key cities and building brand awareness with financial and social media outlets.

Greg Falesnik, CEO of MZ North America, commented: “Global demand for lithium continues to far outpace supply, driven by increased manufacturing of batteries powering electric vehicles and backup systems. The U.S. government’s mandate to extract itself from foreign supply dependency for lithium makes ABM uniquely positioned to meet the required U.S. lithium production given its proven mineral rich assets in Southern Utah.”


“ABM will deploy DLE in selective brine extraction to provide a cost-effective, efficient, and environmentally friendly method of production. The need for sustainable U.S. lithium independence, combined with a 500% rise global lithium demand, makes ABM a unique opportunity for investors and we look forward to sharing this with our network of institutional investors and family offices,” concluded Falesnik.

“ABM is poised to potentially capture a sizeable share of the lithium market as global demand continues to skyrocket without existing domestic production to support it,” said Sebastian Lux, Chief Executive Officer of ABM. “We have a significant advantage of being one of the first to market with a U.S. brine that is available for DLE brine extraction pilot program. This advantage in positioning will allow us to select the top tier developing technology in brine extraction, and ultimately allow us to shorten our time to market. We look forward to working with Brooks and the team at MZ Group to communicate our vision to build long-term value for our shareholders.”
