The Clean TeQ Holdings Limited (ASX: CLQ) share price is the best performer on the All Ordinaries on Thursday.
The cobalt producer’s shares rocketed a massive 25% to 25 cents during morning trade. They are still 20% higher at the time of writing.
Why did Clean TeQ’s shares rocket higher?
Investors have been buying Clean Teq’s shares after it announced a collaboration with Panasonic Corporation Global Procurement Company.
This collaboration is to develop applications for Scandium Aluminium Alloys for Panasonic Group.
In addition to this, the two companies have agreed a binding Scandium Offtake Heads of Agreement. This agreement will see Clean TeQ supply up to five tonnes per annum of scandium oxide from the its Sunrise Project in Australia.
