Pan American Partners with Integrity Mining and Industrial to Enhance Lithium Production and Recovery

Pan American Energy Corp. (the “Company” or “Pan American”), is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Integrity Mining and Industrial (“IMI”), a subsidiary of Integrity Bio-Chemicals, LLC, to collaborate on evaluating IMI’s suite of sustainable green chemistries to enhance lithium recovery from petalite bearing pegmatite, spodumene and lithium bearing clays. Pan American intends to share samples from its planned exploration programs at the Horizon Lithium and Big Mack properties with IMI for testing.

A new force in the mining industry since 2019, IMI has strategically grown in a variety of regions by using dedicated research to disrupt current synthetic markets with tailored bio-based polymers and surfactants. IMI uses chemical engineering on an industrial scale to produce environmentally friendly biopolymers. They create chemistry designed to replace or enhance traditional chemistries that are not only high-performing and cost-effective but are equally sustainable. IMI is focused on the next frontier of global electrification and manufactures chemical solutions to enhance critical mineral recovery that supports the North American supply chain.

Jason Latkowcer, CEO and Director, comments, “Pan American’s alignment with IMI reflects our commitment to supporting more sustainable processes. As we move through our upcoming exploration programs, we intend to provide lithium bearing samples for testing by IMI’s floatation chemists and full team of research and development scientists at their innovation laboratory in Cresson, Texas. Our goal is to identify optimization opportunities across various lithium production processes that may benefit both the company and industry as a whole.”

James Jett, President and CEO of IMI states, “IMI is excited to partner with Pan American. In this new avenue we will be able to diversify our business from precious minerals to critical minerals and enter the next frontier for the US economy - electric and green markets. We hope to use our technical expertise, strengths in production, and scale to assist in the development of more sustainable lithium extraction processes, starting with Pan American’s properties in Canada and the United States.”
