Led by a proven team with impressive manganese credentials and strong experience across the mining lifecycle, Firebird Metals is an emerging Western Australian developer, focused on becoming a key supplier of high-purity manganese into the growing electric vehicle battery market.
The Company’s portfolio comprises of the Flagship Oakover Project, Hill 616 and Wandanya and boasts a total Resource of 234Mt, with compelling exploration and development upside. Oakover has a Mineral Resource Estimate (MRE) of 176.7Mt @ 10%Mn, with 105.78Mt classified in an Indicated Resource category.
The pathway to production at Oakover has been de-risked through the completion of a highly positive Manganese Concentrate Scoping Study and production of >99.8% purity manganese sulphate monohydrate crystal, which confirmed Oakover ore can be processed into battery grade, high-purity sulphate.
Demand for battery grade manganese sulphate continues to grow rapidly, as higher manganese allocations within electric vehicle batteries drive cost reductions while maintaining energy density and range.
Firebird recently launched the next phase of strategic growth, which will see the Company develop into a near-term producer of battery-grade MnSO4, a key cathode material in LMFP (Lithium, Manganese, Iron and Phosphate) batteries for electric vehicles.
Execution of the LMFP strategy will place Firebird at the forefront of manganese sulphate production, to meet further downstream aspirations of becoming a cathode producer and benefit from growing demand for LMFP.
Become a global leader in the manganese industry by seamlessly combining mining and downstream processing, with a profound dedication to the advancement of Li-ion & Na-ion battery sectors.
By harnessing the power of innovation and sustainability, Firebird aims to play a pivotal role in shaping the future of energy storage solutions and significantly contributing to a more sustainable and electrified world.
Firebird has established its next phase of strategic growth, which will grow the Company into a near-term producer of battery-grade MnSO4, which is a key cathode material in LMFP batteries for electric vehicles.
