The latest from Euro Manganese
The Euro Manganese share price soared today despite the company not releasing any price-sensitive news since last Tuesday.
Then, it announced it has received the second of three tranches of investment funding from EIT InnoEnergy.
EIT InnoEnergy’s total investment into Euro Manganese will be worth €250,000. The second tranche will see EIT InnoEnergy paying €125,000 for 330,647 shares.
So far, EIT InnoEnergy will be receiving 478,027 Euro Manganese shares. The company expects to issue the shares in January 2022.
EIT InnoEnergy leads the European Battery Alliance‘s industrial stream. It’s supported by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology.
The money will go towards the Chvaletice Manganese Project’s definitive feasibility study and demonstration plant.
The demonstration plant will produce samples of high-purity manganese for supply chain qualification by potential customers. The company expects those customers to include European electric vehicle and battery manufacturers.
The Euro Manganese share price didn’t react to the news.
The market also heard from Euro Manganese last fortnight when it announced its subsidiary has received licences to continue exploration at the Chvaletice Manganese Project until 2026. It was also granted a new preliminary mining permit that’s valid until 2026.
The licences mean the company can begin operations at the project in the first quarter of 2022.
The Euro Manganese share price gained 3.3% the day the news was released.
