Cobalt's time to shine: Clean Teq

Robert Frost

Clean Teq Holdings owns a world-class, shallow, high-grade scandium/nickel/cobalt deposit at Syerston in outback NSW. The core elements within this deposit are critical ‘future economy’ minerals including:

Scandium, used in light-weight alloy strengthening such as in jet aircraft, with Clean Teq recently signing a collaboration agreement with French giant, Airbus,

Cobalt, which is used in lithium-ion batteries, for which the world’s rapidly evolving battery manufacturing industry has no reliable western world supplier.

Clean Teq is co-chaired by executive director, Sam Riggall, who was previously Rio Tinto’s lead negotiator on its enormous +US$20bn Oyu-Tolgoi copper mine in Mongolia. Riggall’s co-chair at Clean Teq is Robert Friedland, a billionaire resources industry veteran who recently addressed Clean Teq investors on a global roadshow and shared his vision of Syerston as being a game-changing project for Clean Teq.

The company also has a water purification business with pilot projects in China which we expect will be realised at a good premium to its current valuation in the short to medium-term.
