Keliber’s lithium project is progressing
Sibanye-Stillwater is preparing to further finance Keliber and is becoming the majority owner of the company.
30. June 2022
The Board of Directors of our portfolio company Keliber will propose to the Keliber’s Extraordinary General Meeting a financing arrangement that will enable the mining and chemical plant project in Central Ostrobothnia in Finland to proceed as planned. As part of the arrangement, Keliber’s largest owner, Sibanye-Stillwater, an international company focused on mining and mineral processing, is emerging as the majority owner and the main financier of the project.
Finnish Minerals Group supports the proposed financing arrangement. We are evaluating and preparing our own financial contribution as a minority owner of Keliber.
