Aligning with the Canadian government's support for a localized battery supply chain, G6 harnesses Sussex Strategies' expertise for faster, efficient project implementation.

  • G6 Energy Corp collaborates with Sussex Strategies to reinforce Canadian government relations for the imminent Kearney Mine restart and midstream technology development.
  • Sussex will explore financial and other forms of support from the government to expedite the development of a local critical minerals supply chain and battery manufacturing.
  • With Sussex, G6 will strengthen communication with local, provincial, and federal stakeholders.



TORONTO, April 15th 2023 G6 Energy Corp ("G6") is pleased to announce its engagement with Sussex Strategies to enhance its relationship with the Canadian government as it prepares to restart the Kearney Mine and further midstream technology analysis. This move aligns with the government's commitment to fast-tracking the development of the localized supply chain for critical minerals and battery manufacturing, which encompasses a plethora of incentives, loans, grants, and rebates.

Sussex Strategies, a reputable government relations firm with over two decades of experience, will support G6's communication across various levels of local, provincial, and federal stakeholders. Sussex's exceptional service and unparalleled understanding of municipal, provincial, and federal law-making processes, combined with their proven track record in achieving results, make them an invaluable ally in this strategic initiative.

The objective of this engagement is to explore various options for government financial or other forms of support, which will facilitate the swift restart of the Kearney Mine and foster the planned development of midstream processing operations.

Government assistance is particularly pivotal in addressing commercialization gaps and de-risking project economics. The goal is to unlock the full potential of this priority deposit, swiftly capture the opportunity for Canada to secure a strategic position in the emerging, net-zero global economy, and create up to 350 new jobs by restarting the mine and building the midstream cSPG processing plant.

This project is also strategically important for Canada. It holds potential as a catalyst for Canadian leadership in the battery supply chain, showcasing Canada's unique strengths in critical minerals, clean electricity, and battery recycling leadership. G6's plans to invest approximately $320 million to create a sustainable mining and midstream processing operation will further enhance Canada's Environment and Climate Change mandate.

According to Clean Energy Canada, "If Canada plays its cards right, it has the potential to build a domestic EV battery supply chain that could support up to 250,000 jobs by 2030 and add $48 billion to the Canadian economy annually."

This initiative is consistent with the Canadian government's Critical Minerals Strategy, which has set its sights on building a greener, more secure, and more competitive economy. By fostering a resilient battery supply chain on Canadian soil, the country can ensure more in-country value is captured from Canada's raw materials, further aligning with the government's key objectives.

"Government involvement will be a catalyst to attract high-quality investors for this specific project, as well as others to follow. This will improve the likelihood of success for Canadian leadership throughout the supply chain," said Peter McCague, Chairman of G6 Energy Corp.

With additional financial support, G6 Energy can restart production by Q1 2025, ensuring Canada's position on the global stage. This initiative also aligns with the “Buy North American” provisions in the US Inflation Reduction Act, setting Canada up as a preferred supplier of battery minerals, materials, and components to the continent. 

In conclusion, this project is not just about the restart of Kearney Mine or the establishment of midstream operations. It’s about building a future where Canada  is at the forefront of a new, cleaner, and more sustainable global economy, creating new jobs and opportunities for its citizens while making significant strides towards its environmental goals.
