"A new strategy very much, a strategy focused on production; development of an existing plant and some nearby mining tenements in the DRC, and further exploration with the projects we have in Canada as well," explains Brewer.
Winmar announced in January that it had acquired rights to three blocks of mining claims within the historic high-grade Cobalt-Gowganda silver-cobalt mining district of Ontario, Canada. In June, the company commenced exploration activities at the Bloom Lake Cobalt Project there.
In the DRC, Winmar executed Heads of Agreements to acquire a 50% interest in the Luapula Cobalt Processing Facility and a portfolio of several highly prospective exploration licenses to provide run-of-mine feed.
Brewer says, "It's a tremendous opportunity for us. Because of the size of that transaction, and how transformative it's going to be for Winmar, we have to go through some recompliance with the ASX, so that's a process we're currently going through."
