Led by our technical team of Robert Odle, Chief Process Engineer and Paul Sauvé, VP, Operations, Western Magnesium has already contracted an international engineering firm to assist in the design and procurement of the pilot plant. Key activities, such as, process design, flowsheet development, process modeling, and mechanical design are well under way and management feels strongly that the project is moving in the right direction and will meet our projected timelines for completion.  Western Magnesium will achieve its goal of producing magnesium metal by the end of 2020.

With this foundational work under way, Western Magnesium Corporation is well into its operational activation phase of its strategy. With the finish line in mind, all hands are on deck from the finance, operations, and IR perspective as the company forges ahead at an accelerated pace.
