Strong second half expected
On May 5, the company announced it was set for a strong second half of 2020 at the Finniss Lithium Project in the Northern Territory after undertaking a large amount of behind the scenes work during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This included applying for support under a new Northern Territory Government initiative aimed at creating more local jobs and accelerating major and significant projects.
The NT Local Jobs Fund is an $89 million co-investment fund to support economic projects and help high growth potential Territory businesses to increase exports nationally and international.
Core's managing director Stephen Biggins said at the time: “As we can start to see light at the end of the COVID-19 tunnel, the work that the Core team has been doing behind the scenes sets us up well for a strong second half."
