Brazil Minerals Adds Graphite Properties and Releases New Website
Belo Horizonte, Brazil – (January 24, 2022) – Brazil Minerals, Inc. (OTCQB: BMIX) (the “Company” or “Brazil Minerals”), the Strategic Mineral Resources Company for the Green Energy Revolution, is pleased to announce that its new website is now accessible at www.brazil-minerals.com.
Additionally, Brazil Minerals has recently added to its mineral asset portfolio three exploration rights for graphite totaling approximately 14,507 acres (59 km2) (the “Graphite Properties”) in the State of Minas Gerais in Brazil. The Graphite Properties are adjacent to areas known for graphite deposits. Graphite is the most used anode in lithium batteries, benefitting from its high energy and power density. The global need for high-quality, low impurity graphite is generally thought to be directly related to the growth in electric vehicle adoption. With these new areas, Brazil Minerals now has projects and properties in essentially all battery metals – including lithium, rare earths, graphite, nickel, cobalt, and titanium.
Furthermore, the Company has recently appointed Volodymyr Myadzel, PhD, Geol. to Senior Vice-President, Geology. Mr. Myadzel had been a consultant to Brazil Minerals since 2021. Under Regulation S-K 1300, he is a Qualified Person for lithium, iron, and gold, among other minerals. Mr. Myadzel is a geologist with over 23 years of experience acquired in mines and exploration projects in Russia, Ukraine, Guinea, Uruguay, and Brazil. He has expertise in geological modeling, resource estimation, and QA/QC analysis. Additionally, Mr. Myadzel has extensive experience in auditing mineral projects on behalf of investors and/or acquiring companies. He is a principal at VMG Consultoria e Soluções Ltda, a company that has provided geological expertise to large global companies with mines and projects in Brazil.
