Dr. Pringle has considerable experience and high technical capability, particularly in international base/precious metals and critical minerals projects. He has been integral in the development of several world-class mines and is highly regarded for his work in the battery minerals sector.

Mr. Tyson Hall, BSc (Chemical Engineering), MBA, is a Chemical Engineer with broad executive experience in manufacturing and specialty chemicals. Mr. Hall has planned, built and operated high-value advanced materials projects throughout the USA, including lithium and boron. Most recently Mr. Hall was Chief Operating Officer at 5E Advanced Material and was previously Global Business Director of Performance Materials at Albemarle Corp.

About Electric Metals (USA) Limited

Electric Metals (USA) Limited (TSXV: EML) (OTCQB: EMUSF) is a U.S.-based mineral development company with manganese and silver projects geared to supporting the transition to clean energy. The Company’s principal asset is the Emily Manganese Project in Minnesota, which has been the subject of considerable technical studies, including a National Instrument 43-101 Technical Report – Resource Estimate, with over US$26 million invested to date. The Company’s mission in Minnesota is to become a domestic U.S. producer of high-purity, high-value manganese metal and chemical products for supply to U.S. energy, technology and industrial markets. With manganese playing a critical and prominent role in lithium-ion battery formulations, and with no current domestic supply or active mines for manganese in North America, the development of the Emily Manganese Project represents a significant opportunity for America, the State of Minnesota and for the Company’s shareholders. In addition, the Company owns and operates the Corcoran Silver-Gold Project and the Belmont Silver Project in Nevada, with the former also having been the subject of a National Instrument 43-101 Technical Report – Resource Estimate.
