Fuse Cobalt Inc. has signed a non-binding memorandum of understanding (MOU) regarding a cobalt raw material supply agreement with Electra Battery Materials Corp.

Robert Setter, Fuse CEO, comments:

"This MOU is the first step towards a potential Definitive Agreement to supply cobalt raw material for Electra's nearby cobalt refinery and sets out the terms by which we will exchange information with Electra to advance a potential transaction to involving the supply of cobalt raw materials. The end result of this collaboration will be the execution of a Definitive Agreement to provide cobalt feed stock to the Electra Cobalt Refinery which is roughly a stone's throw away from our two cobalt exploration properties in Ontario."

Trent Mell, Electra's CEO, comments:

"Having a domestic source of cobalt raw material produced ethically and with low-carbon emissions will help us to better address the demand for onshore EV battery materials. We look forward to working with Fuse Cobalt as they advance development of their projects and begin production."
