INCLINE VILLAGE, NV / ACCESSWIRE / September 11, 2019 / American Battery Metals Corporation (OTCQB:ABML) (the "Company"), a premier battery metal exploration and development company based in Nevada, Chief Executive Officer Doug Cole discussed recent proposals made by a panel on renewable energy at the Nevada Mining Association's annual convention.
"Discussions about renewables and environmentally sustainable mining practices are crucial- and time-sensitive," said American Battery Metals Corporation Chief Executive Officer Doug Cole.
Panelist Jaina Moan, an external affairs director for The Nature Conservancy, said, "Renewable energy deployment... can also support mining operations." Moan continued, "These considerations can also be made from mining companies who are in the exploration phase in thinking about their operating plans... and including renewable energy on that," she said during the panel discussion.
Cole agreed, stating, "Mining companies must continually evolve to operate in environmentally responsible ways. American Battery Metals Corporation takes seriously our responsibility to be good stewards of the lands and surrounding communities where we operate."
When asked how American Battery Metals Corporation executes on its strategic plan with an eye on environmental sustainability, Cole said that American Battery Metals has proactively signed a Letter of Intent with renewable energy development company Panel The Planet, Inc. to explore grid-tied or captive renewable energy project(s) on company owned land. The goal is to provide cost effective power for the company's lithium mining and processing operations and also to potentially generate ancillary revenue for the company through power purchase agreements (PPAs) with state of Nevada utility NV Energy.
American Battery Metals head of business development Doug Nickle stated, "Renewable energy deployment is positive, both economically and environmentally. We are excited to work with our partners, neighbors, and the state of Nevada to drive environmentally-friendly, innovative solutions for our mining and recycling programs."
