Cboe Canada Continues to Fuel the Innovation Economy With Public Launch of IberAmerican Lithium
Toronto | September 13, 2023 – Cboe Canada is proud to welcome IberAmerican Lithium Corp. (“IberAmerican”), a lithium exploration and mining company, as they make their public markets debut. IberAmerican begins trading on Cboe Canada today, under the symbol IBER.
IberAmerican is a mineral exploration company currently focused on two hard-rock lithium resource properties along the Iberian Pegmatite Belt in Galicia, Spain. As a necessary component of the high-capacity rechargeable batteries used in electronics, electric cars, and energy grid storage, lithium is a critical mineral in the renewable energy market.
“We are very excited to be listing on Cboe Canada, an innovative exchange that aligns seamlessly with our mission to drive clean energy,” said Campbell Becher, Chief Executive Officer and a Director at IberAmerican. “The public listing of IberAmerican not only demonstrates our commitment to advancing sustainable solutions, but also reflects the growing importance of electrification in furthering the global energy transition.”
IberAmerican is working to capitalize on the increased demand for critical minerals following initiatives launched by the European Union and the Spanish government to promote the adoption of new green technology and a competitive sustainable energy value chain.
“The global transition to a green economy not only requires the development and integration of disruptive new technologies; it requires the participation of companies in supporting industries, like the critical minerals sector,” noted Jos Schmitt, President and CEO of Cboe Canada. “IberAmerican is one of those companies, enabling sustainable energy solutions that will help mitigate further damage to the environment.
