South Star Mining Corp. ( "South Star " or "the Company" ) (TSXV: STS ) (OTC:STSBF) is pleased to announce that 3,899,000 warrants have been exercised for total proceeds of C$584,850. The C$0.15 warrants were originally issued in February 2019
Richard Pearce, President and CEO of South Star, commented: "I am very pleased to announce that the warrants have been exercised and would like to thank our investors for continued support moving through construction in 2021 and towards our goal of commercial production in 2022. 2021 and 2022 will be a transformational time for us as we transition from a development to a production story and become the first new graphite mine placed in continuous production in the Americas in over a decade. Santa Cruz will provide high-quality, critical raw materials for industrial and high value-added uses, including li-ion batteries and the electrification revolution, for years to come. We believe that the path to long-term shareholder and stakeholder value centers on responsible, profitable production and being a positive contributor in the communities in which we operate. The team is committed to our vision of delivering value."
South Star Mining Corp. is focused on the selective acquisition and development of near-term production projects in Brazil. South Star is driven to create fundamental value in the battery metals sector for clients and investors with real projects that have strong intrinsic financial and operating metrics, and that can be profitable throughout the resource cycle. South Star has an experienced executive team with a strong history of discovering, developing, building and operating profitable mines in Brazil.
The Santa Cruz Graphite Project ("the Project"), located in Southern Bahia, is the first of a series of battery metals projects that will be put into production. Brazil is the second-largest graphite-producing region in the world with more than 80 years of continuous mining. The Project has at-surface mineralization in friable materials, and successful large-scale pilot plant testing (>30t) has been completed. The results of the testing show that approximately 65% of Cg concentrate is +80 mesh with good recoveries and 95-99% Cg. With excellent infrastructure and logistics, South Star is carrying its development plan towards Phase 1 production projected in Q4 2022, pending financing.
South Star is committed to a corporate culture, project execution plan and safe operations that embrace the highest standards of ESG principles based on transparency, stakeholder engagement, on-going education and stewardship.
