About ELEMENT 25

Element 25’s 100% owned Butcherbird Project is an open pit manganese mine, with its processing and exporting operation located in the southern Pilbara region of Western Australia. This world class resource underpins the Company’s core strategy of becoming a global Manganese producer.

Element 25’s vision is to develop safe, sustainable business and manufacturing practices in the production of high purity manganese products that will benefit future generations through sustainable growth and profitability, while leaving a smaller footprint on the world.

A cleaner, lower carbon flowsheet coupled with high penetration renewable energy, will place Butcherbird at the forefront of sustainable metal production.
