John Passalacqua of First Phosphate Discusses Advancing to PEA & Pilot Plant to Feed LFP Batteries


In this InvestorIntel interview, Tracy Weslosky talks with First Phosphate Corp.’s (CSE: PHOS | FSE: KD0) CEO and Director John Passalacqua about the significance of phosphate. As an essential mineral for humanity, with about 90% of its use dedicated to food production, John discusses the rapid growth in demand for phosphate in LFP (Lithium Iron Phosphate) batteries used in electric vehicles.

John also provides an update on First Phosphate’s deposit in the Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean Region of Quebec, Canada, and the tax benefits of being located in Quebec. The deposit hosts high-purity phosphate material, devoid of concentrations of deleterious elements.

He goes on to discuss the significant milestones achieved at its project in just one year of being in operation, including securing extensive claims, conducting advanced drilling, releasing a mineral resource, and progressing towards a PEA (Preliminary Economic Assessment) and phosphate concentration pilot plant.

With an MoU (memorandum of understanding) in place with Port of Saguenay in Quebec, Canada to secure deep-sea access to the global markets, John provides an update on First Phosphate’s partnership with Prayon SA, a global leader in purified phosphoric acid production and technology.
