Question Faulty A601 due to Battery Leak

I got an used A600 and it unexpectedly came with an A601 Memory Expansion.

After testing with Sysinfo I thinks it's totally dead as it only shows 1M Chipram when plugged in to my A600!

I cut off the metal casing of my A601 and the clock battery has leaked and caused corrosion, I desoldered the leaking battery and cleaned the board best I could.

If the leaking battery cause it to break I arent sure.

Any idea if it could be repaired, I dont think any tracks have been damaged just the green layer, anythything I could check.

I would imagine the Memory expansion would work, as the battery is just for the Real Time Clock!

The electrolyte has eaten away the tracks that go to the two SMT components near the D912 text.. Probably more.

Dig out the schematics and verify/repair the connections. This is feasible to repair, the design itself is relatively simple
