Magnesium has several distinct advantages over other metals, specifically steel and aluminum.

  • Lightweight: Magnesium is the lightest of all structural metals. At a density of 1.7g/cm3, it is 33% lighter than aluminum, 60% lighter than titanium, and 75% lighter than steel.
  • High-Strength: Magnesium has the best strength-to-weight ratio of any commonly used structural metal.
  • Superior Castability: Magnesium can be manufactured using thin-walled die casting techniques which enable structures to be made as one piece rather than assembled from several components. This simplifies design, lowers assembly costs, improves reliability, and reduces joints, fasteners and welds.
  • Corrosion Resistance: New, high purity magnesium alloys deliver better corrosion resistance than carbon, steel and some aluminum alloys.
  • Stability and Dampening Capacity: Magnesium has excellent dimensional stability as well as high impact and dent resistance. It can absorb up to 16-times more shock and vibrations than aluminum.
  • 100% recyclable: Magnesium can be recycled without any degradation in physical properties. The energy needed for recycling magnesium alloys is also smaller than that for other metals.

The Increasing Need For Magnesium in a Lightweight World

Because of its versatility, weight, and strength, magnesium is used in many applications that are a part of everyday life.
In recent years, the metal has seen a dramatic increase in use in the automobile, consumer electronics, and aerospace industries. Magnesium oxide and other magnesium compounds are also used in the agricultural, chemical, and construction industries.
For biological uses, pharmaceutical preparations of magnesium are used to treat magnesium deficiency and hypomagnesemia, as well as eclampsia. Magnesium is also commonly included in dietary mineral preparations, including many multivitamin preparations.

The Six Main Uses For Magnesium Today



“New technological breakthroughs in the magnesium industry have revolutionized the metal’s fabrication process and are positioning it to challenge aluminum as the metal of the 21st century.”

–Carl Nesbitt, President – American Magna Corp.

Corporate Summary
American Magna Corp. (AMGC): Advancing the metal of the 21st Century.

In the 19th century, a technological innovation called the “Bessemer Process” revolutionized the steel industry and changed the world’s industrial landscape forever. Today, we are seeing similar technological revolutions in the magnesium industry. From General Motors’ recently patented thermal-forming procedure to the creation of “stainless magnesium”, rapid advances are paving the way for magnesium to replace aluminum as manufacturer’s metal of choice.
Magnesium is the Metal of the 21st Century
American Magna Corp. strongly believes magnesium is the metal of 21st century.
It has best strength-to-weight ratio of any of the commonly used structural metals. It’s 33% lighter than aluminum, 60% lighter than titanium, and 75% lighter than steel. It also possesses strong heat dissipation, damping and electro-magnetic shielding characteristics.
These key traits, along with recent technological breakthroughs in the manufacturing process, have positioned magnesium for mass adoption across a vast number of industries including the automotive, aerospace, housing, agricultural, pharmaceutical, and manufacturing.
On the Cusp of a Major Industrial Revolution
American Magna Corp. (ticker: AMGC) is positioning itself, along with its shareholders, to prosper from the rapid growth in magnesium usage.
Our corporate goal is to establish a strong foothold in the industry while it’s transformation is still in the early stages. We are currently pursuing three strategies to accomplish this:
  1. Lock-up a portfolio of magnesium-rich properties that we can leverage as the demand for magnesium rises.
  2. Advance magnesium technologies and awareness.
  3. Forge relationships in key industries.
To help maximize shareholder value, American Magna Corp. has assembled a highly skilled and experienced management team with over 60 years experience in business and the mineral industry.

The Bell Flat Project
A magnesium project in a region known for high-levels of magnesia

The Bell Flat Project is comprised of 11 unpatented mining claims covering a total of 220 acres located within the Walker Lane trend, Churchill County, Nevada. The property is located approximately 15 miles north of Gabbs, Nevada and 25 miles north of the Paradise Peak mine.
Extensive soil and rock sampling, geophysical surveys and drilling have identified an area of elevated magnesium values ranging from 3 to 12 percent existing in soils. The spacing of the soil grid was completed on 100 feet intervals east-west and approximately 500 feet intervals north-south. The elevated values occur within an area 300 to 400 feet in width and over a distance of 2,500 feet in length.
The project area encompasses a northwesterly trending structural zone which also hosts low grade gold and silver. The structure cuts Tertiary felsic volcanic rocks and Triassic sediments. The Triassic sediments are the host rock for the nearby magnesium mine located near Gabbs, Nevada. Shallow pits, trenches and a few drill holes have encountered gold and silver within argillized shale and jasperoid developed along the contact of the sediments and younger volcanic rocks. Clay altered felsic volcanic tuff also contains some gold and silver. The altered rocks are capped by post-mineral basalt and wind-blown sand.
