First Phosphate Partners with Queen’s University Pufahl Research Group to Promote Lac à l’Orignal Property as Single Source for LFP Battery Industry

Saguenay, Quebec, September 21, 2022 – First Phosphate Corp. ( The first phosphate » or Company ») is pleased to announce He said he is collaborating on a research initiative with the Pufahl Research Group at Queen’s University in Canada. This collaboration with a globally recognized group will provide new insights into the economic potential of the Lac à l’Orignal deposit as a rich source of pure phosphate for the lithium-iron-phosphate (LFP) battery industry.

Obtaining advanced mineralogical information is critical to making decisions about the technical feasibility of the site and how to efficiently extract pure phosphate that meets environmental, social and management standards ( ESG ») with a strict, lowest possible carbon footprint », said John Passalacqua, chief executive officer of First Phosphate Corp. This partnership provides First Phosphate with a competitive advantage by laying the groundwork for the development of specialized and advanced phosphate production methods for the LFP battery industry. Ultimately, we want to use our high-purity phosphate resource to help Quebec and Canada become leaders in the electric vehicle industry and move toward our national climate change goals. »

The main purpose of this partnership is to SGS Canada Inc. (Quebec/ Lakefield) is to determine the detailed mineralogy and geochemistry of the phosphate ores and mineral tailings from Lac à l’Orignal, a step that complements the bulk geochemical and metallurgical analyses. Obtaining such high-resolution data with state-of-the-art microscopy techniques is essential for understanding minute changes in the chemistry of the minerals that make up the host rock of anorthosite at the micron scale. Anorthosite is a rare and underexplored source of high purity phosphate.

Collectively, these methods provide details not only of phosphorus concentrations in Lac à l’Orignal, but also of how trace elements are distributed in the ore and waste rock. This is despite the already enviable purity of phosphate in anorthosite Co-director of the organization Professor Peir Pufahl said about this Isotope Research Laboratory at Queen’s University. “ This high-resolution portrait is not possible using bulk whole-rock analysis alone, and is critical to understanding how to manage these elements during ore processing to safely manage waste and ensure a completely clean, ethical and safe source of supply. »
