We are grateful to have enlisted the support of EIT InnoEnergy and look forward to working with them to bring our project to fruition.

About the Chvaletice Manganese Project
Euro Manganese claims that its Chvaletice project is the only sizeable manganese resource in the European Union. Consequently, the project has the potential to provide up to 50% of the projected 2025 European demand for manganese.
Moreover, unlike many other mining projects, it will also bring environmental and social benefits. This is as a result of the use of polluted water being utilised in the conversion process. Long term jobs will also be created in the region of the Czech Republic where the mine will be located.
