Giyani Metals is focused on becoming one of Africa’s first low-carbon producers of battery raw materials for the EV industry through the development of its K.Hill project in Botswana. The Company will produce high-purity manganese sulphate monohydrate (HPMSM), a precursor material used in most lithium-ion cathodes, directly from manganese oxide ore. Giyani continues to progress the development of K.Hill, highlighted by the construction of a demonstration plant to produce HPMSM for qualification with major EV manufacturers and battery companies in 2023.

Upgrade of resource base at K.Hill Extension and Otse prospects, and completion of demo plant construction
Commissioning of demonstration plant and product qualification with potential customers, full permitting of the K.Hill project and moving towards commercial offtake terms.
1. Demand for high purity manganese sulphate, a critical battery metal, is set to increase ten-fold over the next decade with a significant supply demand deficit. With +90% of supply comes from China so alternatives sources are in high demand by OEMs and EV companies.
2. The construction of demonstration plant will provide a platform to facilitate off-take contracts with battery and OEM customers and highlight the low carbon process that makes Giyani an ideal partner for the supply of a critical battery material.
3. The K.Hill project is one of the largest battery-grade manganese projects currently in development with strong environmental and social credentials, a clear roadmap to production and significant geological upside that offers the potential to further extended mine.
