US$50 million bond drawdown to fund ongoing construction of ICO


Jervois Global Limited

7 February 2022 TheNewswire - Jervois Global Limited (" Jervois " or the " Company ") (ASX:JRV) (TSXV:JRV) (OTC:JRVMF) has completed the first of two drawdowns of 50% of the US$100 million bond offering (the " Bonds ") proceeds from the escrow account, as contemplated by the terms of the Bonds .

First drawdown on the Bonds follows RPM Global's January 2022 site visit in their capacity as Independent Engineer on behalf of the Bondholders, and submission to the Bonds trustee of an affirmed cost to complete test, confirming Jervois' Idaho Cobalt Operations development project ( "ICO" ) in Idaho, United States, is fully funded to completion.  Site cost and construction schedule remain on track with Jervois expecting first ore at ICO for August 2022 and sustainable commercial production to be reached from December 2022.

These funds will be used exclusively for ongoing construction of ICO.   Once commissioned, ICO will be the only mine-supply of cobalt in the United States. Cobalt is a critical metal necessary for electric vehicles and energy generation and distribution in a carbon constrained economy, as well as industry generally, including the United States' defense industry.

Further information regarding the US$100 million Bonds are described in the Company's news release dated 5 July 2021.

Jervois' financial advisor in relation to the Bonds was Magma Capital Advisory.

On behalf of Jervois

Cobalt Market Update: Q1 2024 in Review

The cobalt market put on a mixed performance in the first quarter of 2024 as metal prices stalled and contracted, while sulfate and hydroxide values increased.

The sector is divided into three segments. Cobalt metal is used as an alloy to strengthen and harden, while cobalt hydroxide is used in lithium-ion batteries, electronics and paint pigments.

Lastly, cobalt sulfate is used to make storage batteries, electroplating baths and some animal feed.

How to Invest in Cobalt (Updated 2024)

Cobalt has been used as a blue coloring agent in pottery, glass and ceramics for thousands of years.

However, more recently, demand from high-tech sectors has overshadowed traditional cobalt uses. Today, this critical metal is an essential ingredient in electric vehicle (EV) batteries, energy storage systems, metal alloys and more.

The lithium-ion battery sector in particular has become a major source of cobalt demand, and analysts expect that this sector will drive the cobalt market going forward. At the same time, cobalt supply could tighten substantially due to human rights abuses in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), where most cobalt is produced.

Top 3 Canadian Cobalt Stocks in 2024

The first months of 2024 saw cobalt take a bearish stance, constrained by excess supply and eroding demand.

Cobalt prices faced many headwinds at the beginning of the year, and they pulled the value of the battery metal down by 2.01 percent between January and the end of March. After starting the calendar year at US$29,134 per metric ton (MT), cobalt metal prices had fallen to US$28,548 by the end of the three month session.

The sluggish market conditions were attributed to reduced demand from the battery sector and oversupply of material. As a result, prices remained under pressure, with limited signs of improvement expected in the near term.
