Finalists motivate the metals industry to new paradigms

Today, MGX Minerals Inc. announced that it has been nominated in 2 categories as a finalist for the S&P Global Platts Metal Awards. MGX has been chosen as a finalist for "the Breakthrough Solution of the Year Award" (finalists include a total of 13 companies) as well as "the Base and Specialty Metals Industry Leadership Award" (other finalists in this category include Cobalt 27 Capital Corp. and Hindustan Zinc Ltd.). 

Now celebrating its sixth anniversary, the prestigious Platts Global Metals Awards program was "originally developed to honor executives and companies that motivate the metals industry to new paradigms... by embodying excellence in leadership, innovation, safety, integrity and overall performance, while achieving goals in new and often surprising ways." As this sounds like a perfect description of MGX and its rapid lithium extraction technology, it does not surprise that the Vancouver-based greentech company has been nominated as a finalist.

The finalists were chosen from a pool of nearly 100 nominations. An independent panel of international experts, whose background and experience include regulation, corporate leadership, trading and technology, will determine the award winners in each category as well as the Metals Company of the Year, which will be selected from the entire list of finalists by the independent panel of judges. Winners of the 2018 Global Metals Awards will be announced at a black-tie celebration on May 17, 2018 at the Marriott Grosvenor Square in London. 

Judging Criteria of the Nominate Category "Breakthrough Solution of the Year":
-- Innovation
-- Net job growth (projected)
-- Results (non-financial)
-- Scope
-- Technologically proven
-- Safety, security and risk in particular
"The award recognizes innovators or first movers, as well as those with the perseverance to transform an existing process or make it remarkably better. Judges will focus on the research, development and commercialization of ingenious and cost-effective ways to enhance one or more of the following key objectives: greater efficiency, higher productivity, better quality and lower environmental impact."

"Thoughtful evaluation and selection will be conducted by an impartial panel of independent judges, who make decisions solely based on the merits presented by each finalist. The winning companies represent the best of the best."  While its 58 days until the awards, MGX´s shareholders may celebrate even earlier as the company nears commercial deployment of its first petrolithium system.
