Erin Ventures Inc. (TSXV: EV) announces that it continues to be actively engaged in the due diligence process with potential strategic partners regarding the development of its Piskanja boron project in Serbia.
A prospective partner who is currently conducting due diligence on the Piskanja project has expressed an interest in forging a multi-faceted, long-term strategic alliance with Erin, upon completion of the due diligence. This prospective partner meets Erin’s criteria because of their ability to provide Erin with: the capital required to develop the mine; boron-specific technical and marketing expertise; and a ready market for boron products from Piskanja (as they are both a leading consumer and a major wholesaler of boron and boron derivatives in one of the world’s largest and fastest growing markets for boron products).
As part of their due diligence process, the potential partner purchased a 200 tonne bulk sample of colemanite for analysis. The sample was extracted from the Pobrdje boron deposit (owned by Ibar Mines and located 2.5 km from Piskanja), as the potential partner is satisfied that the mineralogy and boron grades at Pobrdje are sufficiently similar to those at Piskanja to be representative and relevant. They have reported to Erin that the chemical analysis of the sample, conducted at their laboratory, is now complete with positive results that meet their expectations. As the laboratory testing was positive, the next step in their analysis is the testing of the sample material in their factory, in order to ascertain the suitability of the material in a large-scale, practical setting. Results of this large-scale testing are expected over the next few weeks.
