Magnis Energy Technologies Limited (ASX:MNS) Nachu Graphite Project Update

on 12/29/2021
Magnis Energy Technologies Limited (ASX:MNS) (FRA:U1P) (OTCMKTS:MNSEF) is pleased to provide an update on activities from its wholly owned Nachu Graphite Project (Nachu). Tabled below are recent milestones achieved as works start to ramp up in 2022.


In recent months activities have begun on the Eco-Village which will provide housing for 56 families affected by Nachu. Clearing works are nearing completion with roadworks having commenced recently. It is expected that during Q1 2022 that construction of the village will begin. Plans are underway looking at options for powering of the village where we are assessing an option of providing a solar and battery storage solution using lithium-ion batteries produced from iM3NY's battery plant based in Endicott, New York of which Magnis is the major shareholder.

Figures 1 and 2* in link below illustrate a computerised image of the village and the site layout.

Nachu Recent Works

Water bore drilling was recently completed to identify water required for construction purposes. The program was very successful with several holes drilled all showing significant water flow. The water volumes achieved are suitable for the construction phase.

Fencing off Nachu will begin in Q1 2022 and it is expected the process will be completed within 3 months of starting.
