Aqua Metals Announces “Visitor Days” Beginning in May
ALAMEDA, Calif., April 24, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aqua Metals, Inc. (NASDAQ:AQMS), (“Aqua Metals” or the “Company”), which is commercializing a non-polluting electrochemical lead recycling technology called AquaRefining™, today announced it would be holding a series of “visitor days” to allow investors and analysts to see the operations at AquaRefinery 1, which the Company has built at the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center in Storey County, Nevada. The Company will host its first visitor day for analysts in May, with additional visitor days to follow later in the summer.
“In recent days, we have seen an anonymous report filled with misinformation and innuendo on a stock discussion website. We believe the best way to address this misinformation is to openly show analysts and investors our facility in operation as we continue to scale it up,” said Steve Clarke, Aqua Metals’ Chairman and CEO. “In the meantime, the entire Aqua Metals team remains focused on our primary goal – to scale commercial operations at the first AquaRefinery to 120 metric tons per day by the end of the year, and to expand operations through our strategic relationships.”
