A large battery mining facility operates in central ND

MERCER COUNTY, ND (KFYR) – A Minnesota company plans to build a more than $400 million facility in Mercer County to process nickel and other minerals for batteries.

Talon Metals officials say the U.S. Department of Energy has awarded them $114 million in federal funding from the Infrastructure Act to help build the facility on an existing industrial brownfield site. This company says that it is in negotiations regarding the acquisition of land.

Talon Metals says it should create more than 150 jobs in the community.

The battery materials produced there are used in electric vehicles and the electric grid.
