HALIFAX, Nova Scotia, June 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ELCORA ADVANCED MATERIALS CORP. (TSX.V:ERA | Frankfurt:ELM | OTCQB – ECORF), (the “Company” or “Elcora”), is pleased to announce that it has received its first monthly order for 1000 metric tons of 37% + manganese ore. The delivery of the first part of the order is scheduled before the end of June 2023.

The order was placed by a leading European customer looking for a long-term supply relationship and marks a significant milestone for Elcora’s mining division. The Company has been actively exploring and developing its manganese assets in Morocco, and this order is a testament to the value proposition of the ore and the asset as a whole product.

The Manganese ore index for equivalent 37% Mn grade currently trades at about $3,13USD / dmtu FOB Port Elizabeth (https://www.fastmarkets.com). Elcora aims to sell as close as possible to the index whilst allowing for natural price adjustments as we develop the asset to compete with established supply sources of equivalent grade.
