EV Metals Group

About EV Metals Group

Building a global battery chemicals and technology business for a clean energy future.

EVM is fast-tracking the production of high purity chemicals and cathode active materials (CAM) for rechargeable batteries used in electric vehicles and renewable energy storage. Our fully integrated business model is based on upstream, midstream, and downstream integration of proprietary supply chains from in-situ critical raw materials to downstream production of high purity chemicals and CAM. The recent acquisition of the battery materials business from Johnson Matthey positions EVM as a leading vertically integrated supplier to electric vehicle and battery cell manufacturers.

Widespread electrification and the switch to renewable energy technologies is expected to create unprecedented demand for critical minerals such as lithium, copper, cobalt, nickel, and rare earth elements. EVM has secured long term and stable supplies of critical raw materials that will be used as feedstock for its world first integrated Battery Chemicals Complex being built in Yanbu Industrial City in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The Battery Chemicals Complex will produce high purity chemicals containing lithium, nickel, cobalt, manganese and cathode active materials for electric vehicle and battery cell manufacturers seeking transparent and geopolitically aligned supply chains.

EVM has been a significant shareholder of Caerus since Admission and has now approached Caerus to renew and expand the original Strategic Alliance to enable EV Metals to comply with the “Rules of Origin” (RoO) for electric automotive products under the EU-UK Trade and Co-operation Agreement (TCA) so that they qualify to be tariff- and quota-free. The RoO stipulate the proportion of an automotive product in value terms that must be created from a UK-EU source as summarised and published in the EU Journal under OJ L 149, 30.4.2021, p. 10-2539). Automotive products covered by the TCA include packs for electric vehicles and hybrids.

A second pillar of the supportive relationship and reinvigorated Strategic Alliance is that EV Metals has agreed with Caerus that it becomes the preferred vehicle by which EV Metals will further its ambitions in the European raw materials market. This will be by way of acquiring advanced mining and production projects that further facilitate compliance with the UK-EU Trade & Cooperation Agreement that is to achieve a permanent state by 2027, after a currently in-force, phase-in period.

EVM has a highly knowledgeable executive and management team with over 180 years of combined experience in midstream and downstream processing of minerals, metals and chemicals for global markets and upstream integration through exploration and mining. Incorporated in 2014, EVM is a private company owned by a range of investors and management. It has offices in Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia, Perth, Western Australia and London, United Kingdom.

Jubilee Metals

About Jubilee Metals

Jubilee Metals is a waste processing and metals recovery company listed in London on AIM (JLP) and in Johannesburg on the JSE (JBL). The company has operating assets in South Africa and has recently expanded its footprint to Zambia. The company is focussed on the recovery of metal residues from mine tailings, waste rock, marginal ore and related materials. Specifically, Jubilee seeks to secure low risk, low capital intensive, long-term commodity production from mine surface waste materials with reduced capital outlay when compared to traditional mining techniques

Jubilee has a track-record of partnering with small but ambitious mining companies and also with governments to develop and implement metal recovery projects from mine waste. The company has adopted advanced, environmentally-sustainable metal recovery techniques and deploys proven and ‘cutting-edge’ metallurgical processing solutions to recover metals from historical mine discard.

In 2020 Jubilee made a strategic move to diversity into copper alongside its established PGM and chrome-based operations. This move into copper was initially by way of acquiring the Sable Refinery in Kabwe, Zambia, leading to the construction and ownership of a new copper-focused processing facility (Project Roan). Jubilee has acquired copper-tailings as part of its strategy with the goal of establishing Jubilee as a leading copper producer from historical tailings and other mine waste

Bezant Resources PLC

Bezant Resources plc (“Bezant”) is an AIM-listed exploration and mining company. Bezant has entered into an Option Agreement with Caerus which is expected to lead to the signing of a Joint Venture Agreement for the exploration, development and mining of selected projects within the licence portfolio held by Caerus in Cyprus.

Bezant is focused on developing a pipeline of copper gold projects to provide a new generation of economically and socially sustainable mines.

The company portfolio of assets includes the following projects:

  • Hope Copper-Gold project in Namibia – The project is in the Matchless Copper Belt in Namibia and has a 10.2 million tonnes JORC category grade of about 1.9% copper and 0.3 g/t of gold (approx. 30% resource tonnage classified in the “indicated” Mineral Resource category with the balance in the “inferred” Mineral Resource category).
  • Kalengwa project in Zambia – the company acquired a 30% interest in the Kalengwa project on 24 April 2020. This exploration project is in the area surrounding the historic, high-grade Kalengwa open pit copper mine. The stratigraphic package at Kalengwa is similar to that hosting the world-class deposits in the Copperbelt. These deposits are thought to be formed from hydrothermal and ore-bearing fluids sourced from the intrusives of the Hook Granite complex. It is notable that such intrusives occur at the Kalengwa mine and are known from historic third-party drilling and airborne magnetic surveying to occur at, or close to, several other prospects within the Licence.
  • Eureka project in Argentina – a red bed layered style mineralisation with potential feeder zones located under a historic underground mine in Jujuy province, Argentina.
  • Mankayan project in the Philippines – a porphyry system located in the Luzon Island. The Company retains 20% of its interest in this project have sold 80% on 4 October 2019.
