We look forward to working closely with our shareholders in Canada and the United States as we continue to build out operations that will place us on the frontlines to become the reliable source for clean magnesium.”
Peter O’Rourke Sr., President, U.S. Operations said, “We have a tremendous opportunity to work together with policy makers at the local, state, and Federal level that will help educate and inform decisions on national security and supply chain matters as it relates to clean magnesium production. This will ultimately ensure that we continue to build an America that is safe and prosperous as we unveil a new chapter of American ingenuity.”
