Western Magnesium Obtains Pilot Plant Location

NEW YORK, NY - TheNewswire - September 1, 2020 - Western Magnesium Corporation (TSXV:WMG) (FrankfurtM1V) (OTC:MLYF) ("Western Magnesium" or the "Company") is very pleased to announce that it has finalized and obtained a location for its commercial pilot plant.

The plant will be in the lower mainland with close proximity to the downtown core, major transportation routes and the airport. The building itself is new and meets all the specifications and zoning needed to build the entire plant. The technical team is excited about the environment and are now going through their last stages of preparation to start moving into the new facility. Mr. Paul Sauve says, "This is an excellent facility that will provide all the required amenities necessary for a successful pilot plant campaign."

Mr. Sam Ataya commented, "This is a great achievement for Western Magnesium as it has met one of its important milestones in Phase 2 as it continues to move forward towards production of magnesium metal by the end of the year, into the New Year. This critical step not only gets us closer to production, but also gets us closer to end-user testing and certification and being a supplier to the various industries that require magnesium such as the automotive, aerospace, government and eco-friendly industries. This commercialized pilot plant will lay the foundation for all the commercialized plants to follow across Canada and the United States."
