US Government Gives Grants Worth $2.8B to Build Up EV Batteries Supply Chain

FN Media Group Presents Microsmallcap.com Market Commentary

NEW YORK, Nov. 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The United States is continuing to build its domestic EV battery supply chain. The Biden administration has awarded grants totaling $2.8 billion for developing electric vehicle (EV) battery manufacturing facilities in the United States, as the country works to reduce its reliance on Asia. President Joe Biden has set a goal of electrifying half of all new vehicles sold by 2030. Demand for critical minerals critical for EV batteries is expected to skyrocket in the next decade due to increased EV sales, which Biden is calling "one of the most significant economic transitions since the Industrial Revolution." According to the US Department of Energy, the approved projects will eventually supply enough lithium to produce 2 million EVs, enough graphite to produce 1.2 million EVs, and enough nickel to produce 400,000 EVs per year. Albemarle (NYSE:ALB), Talon Metals (TSX:TLO) (OTCPK:TLOFF), and American Battery Technology Co (OTCQB:ABML) are among the companies that have received funding. Meanwhile, FE Battery Metals Corp. (CSE:FE) (OTCQB:FEMFD) and Sayona Mining Limited (OTCQB:SYAXF) are driving the electric future with their lithium mining projects.

FE Battery Metals (CSE:FE) (OTCQB:FEMFD) is a Canadian mineral exploration company with a focus on locating, acquiring, and investigating mineral prospects in North America for industrial, base, and precious metals.

On November 8, FE Battery Metals announced results from drill hole LC22-39 from the Phase 2 exploratory drill program at its 100% owned Augustus Lithium Property in Quebec, Canada. According to the results, drill hole LC21-39 intersected three lithium pegmatites, with the main 7.3 m wide pegmatite zone averaging 1.54% lithium oxide (Li2O) at 188.7m drilled depth.

The drill program is based on the historical and 2021 Phase 1 exploration data as well as the company's surface trenching and sampling program results. Several historical drill hole collars were also located on the Property, which helped in the current program's location and orientation of drill holes. A B-20 drill rig is deployed for this work, which can drill up to a 1,000-meter-deep hole. To date a total of 42 drill holes with a cumulative core drilling of over 7,500 m has been completed on the Property.
