Element 25 Ltd (ASX:E25) has commenced all key work streams for its pre-feasibility study (PFS) at its 100% owned Butcherbird Manganese Project in Western Australia.

The PFS is building on the 2018 scoping study that concluded the project has potential to be an economically viable producer of high-purity manganese sulphate for lithium-ion battery markets.

Discussions continue with lithium-ion battery manufacturers on required specifications and quantities as a prelude to off-take negotiations.
