Phosphate Purification Expert Yves Caprara Joins First Phosphate Advisory Board



Saguenay, Canada - Newsfile Corp. - October 19, 2022 - First Phosphate Corp. ("First Phosphate" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that Yves Caprara has been appointed to the advisory board of the Company.

Mr. Caprara is an international expert in purified phosphoric acid technologies and their applications, with a focus on sustainability within the Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) Battery industry. He is a veteran in the industry, who held the post of Chief Executive Officer of Prayon SA, Europe's largest producer of technical grade phosphoric acid. During his time there, Mr. Caprara ran operations in Europe, the United States, Canada, China, India, Brazil and Morocco. He was also a member of the board of the International Fertilizer Association from 2015-2020.

"Mr. Caprara's decades of experience and transnational knowledge of the high grade phosphoric acid market, especially as it relates to the LFP Battery industry, are highly coveted by First Phosphate," said Chief Executive Officer John Passalacqua. "I am looking forward to working closely with Yves as First Phosphate rolls out its six phase integration strategy within the North American and global LFP Battery space."

First Phosphate holds over 1,500 sq. km of total land claims in the Saguenay Region of Quebec, Canada that it is actively developing. Its properties consist of rare anorthosite igneous rock formation that generally yields high purity phosphate concentrate devoid of high concentrations of deleterious heavy metals.

"Alongside Morocco, where new phosphoric purified capacity is expected, Québec has an important role to play. In the United States, the depletion of current assets will lead to further import of phosphate to secure agricultural demand, and Europe has almost no domestic supply of phosphate. Future demand growth from the LFP Battery industry cannot be met without new deposits such as those that will be brought to market by First Phosphate," said Mr. Caprara. "I am impressed by First Phosphate's ambitious emerging industrial plan for phosphate beneficiation and phosphoric acid production for the LFP Battery space to meet the looming shortages and supply-side shocks that will almost certainly manifest by 2025-2030," he added.

Mr. Caprara is the co-author of the industry awareness piece, "Identifying the Pinch Points in the LFP Supply Chain" published in the February 9, 2022 issue of Battery Metals Review: https://firstphosphate.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/10/BMR_Feb22-Final.pdf

First Phosphate's flagship property is located approximately 110 km driving-distance north of the City of Saguenay, Quebec's sixth largest city which hosts daily flights to Montreal, a skilled industrial workforce, strong local infrastructure, and which is 30 km driving-distance from the deep sea Port of Saguenay. The Company has partnered with the globally recognized Pufahl Research Group at Queen's University to determine the detailed mineralogy and geochemistry of phosphatic ore and waste minerals at Lac à l'Orignal, a step which complements the bulk geochemical assays and metallurgy being conducted by SGS Canada Inc. (Quebec / Lakefield).

First Phosphate is fully focused on integrating its phosphate material directly into the supply chain of major battery and electric vehicle producers in North America. The Company has already received promising assay results for its Bégin-Lamarche Property, confirming the presence of high-grade phosphate, and is expecting to announce its 43-101 technical report results for Lac à l'Orignal this fall.
