Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire)ALIX RESOURCES CORP. (“Alix” or the “Company”) (AIX-TSX:V) (37N–FRANKFURT) is pleased to announce that it has formed a new subsidiary, Upcycle Metals Corp. (“Upcycle”). The goal of Upcycle is to establish a plan of action towards the development of a global recycling operation aimed at retrieving battery metals and materials used in Lithium-ion batteries.
