Saguenay, Quebec - Newsfile Corp. - November 17, 2023 - First Phosphate Corp. (CSE: PHOS) (OTC Pink: FRSPF) (FSE: KD0) ("First Phosphate" or the "Company") applauds comments regarding the lithium iron phosphate ("LFP") battery supply chain in North America by Nobel Laureate, Stanley Whittingham, at the Benchmark Week 2023 conference held this week in Los Angeles, California.
Benchmark Source reported that, "The US should work with Canada to build a regional supply chain for batteries and has 'everything it needs' to build cheaper lithium iron phosphate (LFP) cells, Whittingham said. We have lithium in this country, we have iron in this country, we have phosphorus in this country and we clearly have lots of oxygen. So we have everything we need in North America to make LFP. That will involve the US working with Canada on the extraction of raw materials for batteries, he added."
First Phosphate believes that Quebec igneous anorthosite phosphate rock is an untapped source of high purity phosphate which can potentially be mined and transformed into large quantities of purified phosphoric acid (PPA) to service North America's need for the production of LFP cathode active material to meet electrification targets.
