The proceeds from this offering will help us continue to unlock the potential of our Timmins Nickel District, which we believe has the potential to be one of the world’s largest nickel sulphide district. This potential, combined with our novel IPT (‘IPT’) carbonation process to capture and store CO2, provides a foundation for a Zero Carbon Industrial Cluster in northern Ontario. As well, we continue to advance various offtake initiatives, which we expect to complete prior to Jan. 18, 2024, the current repayment date for the Auramet debt facility.”
