Cadence Minerals CEO Kiran Morzaria commented:“As stated in EMH’s announcement, Cinovec is the largest lithium deposit in Europe, the fourth largest non-brine deposit in the world and a globally significant tin resource. To quote EMH CEO Keith Coughlan ‘the initial drill results confirm confidence in the robustness of the ore body and we are particularly encouraged by the higher than expected tin grades in hole CIS-13.’ From the Cadence perspective, and given Cinovec’s strategic significance in the future of the European electric vehicle market, these early results fully validate our investment strategy into this project, and our participation in the recent fundraising. We look forward to further progress and the updated PFS results.”
