NEO Lists Third Mining Company with Launch of Strategic Minerals Europe Corp.
Toronto | December 9, 2021 – NEO is excited to announce the public listing of Strategic Minerals Europe Corp. (“Strategic Minerals”), a mining and exploration company based in Spain. Strategic Minerals begins trading today on the NEO Exchange under the symbol SNTA.
“Strategic Minerals is now the third mining company to launch on the NEO Exchange since September. This new listing affirms that NEO is the place to be for mining companies that are rooted in the critical minerals space and paving the way for tomorrow,” commented Jos Schmitt, President and CEO of NEO. “By listing on NEO, a Tier 1 stock exchange, Strategic Minerals will benefit from enhanced liquidity, greater investor awareness, better quality of trading, and exceptional service and support. We look forward to championing their success as the senior go-public partner of choice.”
Based in the attractive mining jurisdiction of north-western Spain, Strategic Minerals is currently focused on the production, development, and exploration of tin, tantalum, and niobium – metals which are critical to the new green and digital economies. Tin is a key component used in computing and robotics, autonomous and electric vehicles, and energy generation and infrastructure. Tantalum (also known as “coltan”) is heavily used within the electronics industry, primarily in capacitors, while niobium lessens the demand for metallurgical coal in steel production.
“As a company that strives to prove that mining can be both modern and sustainable, while providing conflict-free products that add to our collective well-being, we are thrilled to discover in the NEO Exchange a true partner that understands our business and thinks like we do,” said Miguel de la Campa, Chairman of Strategic Minerals. “Our public debut on NEO provides us with a fair and transparent trading platform for introducing investors to our future-forward products and industrial metals focused on the green, circular economy.”
Investors can trade shares of SNTA through their usual investment channels, including discount brokerage platforms and full-service dealers.
