Cobalt Blue Holdings Ltd (ASX:COB) has confirmed its partnership with LG International (LGI) after issuing just over 7 million shares.

Importantly, the issue of the shares to LGI was part of a placement that raised $7.8 million in new funding.

One of the largest lithium-ion battery makers in the world

LGI is the resources investment arm of global giant LG Corp (KRX:003550) and will act in cooperation with LG Chem, one of the largest lithium-ion battery makers in the world.

LG Chem possesses strong technical leadership in the development of next-generation batteries, especially for fixed storage and electric vehicles (EVs).

Under the first mover partnership, LG will provide capital and technical assistance for Cobalt Blue to make a high-purity battery-grade cobalt sulphate from Thackaringa.

Cobalt Blue is working towards releasing results from its pre-feasibility study (PFS) by the end of the June quarter.
