Sibanye-Stillwater Enters Into Partnership With Finland's Keliber
By Matteo Castia
Sibanye-Stillwater Ltd. said Tuesday that it has entered into a
partnership with Finnish lithium company Keliber, which includes a
30-million-euro ($36.5 million) equity investment in Keliber.
The Johannesburg- and New York-listed mining company said it
will own a 30% stake in Keliber following the transaction.
In addition, a further EUR10 million equity issuance will
simultaneously be offered to existing Keliber shareholders,
Sibanye-Stillwater said. The deal is expected to be implemented in
March, it said.
"In addition to the initial investment, Sibanye-Stillwater has a
guaranteed option to achieve a majority shareholding in Keliber,
following the completion of the updated feasibility study, should
it wish to do so, by contributing further equity financing for the
development of the project," the company said.
Keliber holds several advanced lithium deposits in the Central
Ostrobothnian region of Finland and its largest shareholder is the
Finnish Minerals Group, which manages the state's mining industry
