Cobaltech Mining Inc. (CSK: CA) has signed a letter of intent to acquire a fully permitted cobalt processing facility, situated in the settlement of north Cobalt, Ont., Canada, and strategically situated near the company’s current portfolio of cobalt mineral properties.
This acquisition will enable CobalTech to become one of the first companies in North America to be able to process and refine cobalt. The processing facility is currently fully permitted and production may be expanded to a maximum of 4000t/day before additional permitting is required.
The Company has completed preliminary due diligence and has retained engineering firm BBA of Montreal, Quebec to assist in the final process. The Company conducted full site visits with the engineering firm, Story Environmental of New Liskeard, Ontario, which has been responsible for all environmental monitoring and permitting for the last 10 years, and also assisted in the process and provided copies of the compliance reports and various permits. It is anticipated that the transaction will be completed within 60 days.
Under the terms of the LOI signed February 10th, 2017, the Company has the option to buy the refinery. The full terms will be set forth in the final agreement. The Seller remains responsible for debts resulting from previous operations.
“This acquisition will position CobalTech ahead of its competition in supplying the growing demand for ethically sourced cobalt,” comments Bruce Bragagnolo, Chairman of CobalTech.
“CobalTech’s vision of being one the first companies to process cobalt in North America is taking a major advancement with the purchase of this facility. This completes the goal of vertical integration from an operations standpoint. CobalTech will now be assessing whether to proceed alone or actively start looking for a strategic partner to help advance the project,” said Antoine Fournier, President and CEO of CobalTech.
