NYC, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, April 15, 2024 / -- Today, Albanian Minerals and its subsidiaries, Green Minerals and Global Mining, proudly announce the culmination of a remarkable 30-year journey in geological exploration. Through extensive drilling surveys, Albanian Minerals have unveiled the world's largest reserve of magnesium ore, the Olivine mineral. To delve deeper into this astonishing discovery, I reached out to Sahit Muja, the Founder and CEO of Albanian Minerals.

Sahit Muja, the New York-based executive, reflected on the journey, saying, "It's been an extraordinary path, fraught with challenges. However, our steadfast focus, determination, and relentless dedication have made possible one of the most monumental discoveries in history: a staggering 100 billion tons of the highest-grade olivine on Earth. Our main objective was to identify viable reserves distinguished by their superior quality and ease of extraction, all while keeping costs to a minimum. The reserves we've uncovered boast unrivaled quality worldwide, with production costs at an all-time low in the commercial mineral mining sector. In comparison to other olivine reserves globally, our mine has the capacity to extract tens of millions of tons, provided there's market demand. This is thanks to our vast reserves, exceptional quality, absence of intrusion, and the colossal 30-kilometer stretch of olivine ore. What's more, there's no need for soil removal or deforestation, making our operation environmentally sustainable".

What's the next step in commercializing this immense natural resource, and what do you envision for its future value?. Sahit Muja added, The Olivine mineral is a common component of Earth's mantle, characterized by its silicate composition. While Olivine deposits exist globally, only a few boast high magnesium content without intrusive elements like asbestos. Commercializing any mineral requires financial viability and market demand. As CEO, my focus has always been on the future market potential and the development of science and technology to harness it. Magnesium itself is a vital mineral present in every living cell across biodiversity. It serves as a foundational element in numerous industries, essentially a building block ordained by nature. Without magnesium, life on this planet would be impossible.

As we observe the significance of magnesium, my assessments often revolve around its impact on nature and life. Being one of the lightest metals and widely present on the Earth's surface, magnesium serves as a foundation for numerous materials. Its absence in alloys, refractory materials, and building materials is notable. I foresee a promising future for magnesium in the manufacturing industry, particularly in lightweight alloys offering substantial benefits for various moving objects across air, sea, and land. Moreover, in agriculture, there's a significant demand for magnesium oxide in the fertilizer industry. Magnesium also plays a crucial role in construction, being essential for fireproof boards, refractory bricks, insulation mineral wools, and more.

Magnesium Takes Center Stage: Vital Element for U.S. National Security:

The Department of Defense, in collaboration with the Biden-Harris Administration and leading companies, has announced significant investments aimed at expanding the domestic critical minerals supply chain. This initiative aims to reduce dependence on China while promoting sustainable practices. Critical minerals serve as the foundation for various modern technologies and are crucial for national security and economic prosperity.

Sahit Muja, speaking on behalf of Albanian Minerals, Global Mining, and Green Minerals, highlighted the magnesium revolution, showcasing new innovations and technologies that pave the way for a trillion-dollar industry. These companies, holding the world's largest magnesium reserves, are heavily investing in science and technology, with a particular focus on integrating AI. Muja has spearheaded the development of a forward-looking strategy to secure the highest-quality magnesium reserves globally, positioning these companies as leaders in magnesium production for years to come.

Anticipating substantial investments in green automotive and mobility markets, as well as renewable energy sectors like wind, solar, hydro, and green hydrogen, Muja emphasized the unprecedented scale of these investments and foresees further developments in these areas.

Magnesium's lightweight and versatile properties offer significant opportunities for innovation across various sectors. Its broad applicability spans industries such as automotive, aerospace, transportation, military, mining, agriculture, manufacturing, electronics, and biomedicine.

In the automotive and transportation sectors, magnesium's use in creating lightweight yet robust components can enhance vehicle efficiency, leading to fuel savings and reduced emissions. Similarly, in military applications, magnesium's lightweight yet durable characteristics make it a preferred choice for equipment and technologies.

The use of magnesium in mining and drilling equipment underscores its resilience in harsh environments, contributing to improved efficiency and longevity of machinery. Moreover, its inclusion in aerospace designs can potentially advance future space missions.

Magnesium's biocompatibility makes it suitable for biomedical devices, while its lightweight nature is advantageous in consumer electronics, driving advancements in lighter and more advanced electronic devices.

The global adoption of magnesium alloys by leading companies reflects its growing recognition and utilization across industries, attracting further investment and collaboration in magnesium-based technologies.

In conclusion, magnesium's diverse applications and potential to revolutionize traditional industries make it an appealing investment opportunity. As industries prioritize lightweight, durable, and sustainable materials, magnesium emerges as a material poised to drive significant technological advancements.

The development of magnesium batteries, with higher energy density compared to lithium-ion batteries, holds promise for more efficient and longer-lasting energy storage systems. Research and development efforts, such as those at Tokyo University and the University of Hong Kong, underscore magnesium's potential as a key player in the next generation of batteries, contributing to the transition toward sustainable energy storage technologies.
