Western Magnesium’s technology uses a continuous, silicothermic process to produce pure magnesium in a way that significantly reduces labor and energy costs and generates no toxic by-products. The company’s technology is the result of some 10 years of stealth research and development conducted at its original location in Vancouver, Canada. The R&D Team consists of the leading authorities and experts in the production of magnesium with expertise that dates back to post-World War II U.S. magnesium production when our country led the industry.
In preparation for commercialization, the company recently relocated and redomiciled to the U.S. under the name Western Magnesium. When at production, Western Magnesium will play a significant role in supplying U.S. demand for magnesium metal.
