Purebase Acquires Pozzolan Mineral Asset in San Bernardino, California
IONE, CA, April 2nd, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Purebase Corporation (OTCQB: PUBC), a diversified resource company, headquartered in Ione, California, is pleased to announce that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the “Snow White Pozzolan Mine” (“Snow White”), located in Southern California in San Bernardino County.
Purebase’s Chairman and CEO, Scott Dockter stated, “The acquisition of Snow White will mark our strategic entry into the SCM (supplementary cementitious material) market-place. We have been working with the mineral composition of this mine for several years to create new materials that we know will be in high demand as the availability of fly ash (a byproduct of coal burning plants) as an SCM continues to diminish.” Mr. Dockter further added, “Our unique location in Southern California makes us uniquely positioned to serve West Coast markets in the U.S.”
The primary application of pozzolan is as a supplementary cementitious material in concrete for construction of bridges, highways, buildings, dams, and other construction projects. SCMs are used in concrete to reduce harmful emissions generated during the production of cement, and also provides additional strength and reduces the alkali-silica reaction (ASR) making it very valuable in any construction project.
Purebase Corporation is acquiring Snow White from a related party, and the purchase is subject to certain closing conditions.
Newbridge Securities Corporation, a full-service securities brokerage, and investment banking firm, served as a financial advisor to the transaction.
