Crown Mining Advances U.S.-Based Copper Project amid Biden's Executive Order on Critical Minerals Supply Chain
Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - March 1, 2021) - Crown Mining Corp. (TSXV: CWM)( FSE: C73) ("Crown" or the "Company") would like to report that on February 24th, U.S. President Joe Biden signed an executive order aimed at creating more resilient and secure supply chains for critical and essential goods. The order launches a comprehensive review of U.S. supply chains and directs federal departments and agencies to identify ways to secure U.S. supply chains against a wide range of risks and vulnerabilities.
"This is about making sure the United States can meet every challenge we face in this new era - pandemics, but also in defense, cybersecurity, climate change, and so much more," President Biden said. "And the best way to do that is by protecting and sharpening America's competitive edge by investing here at home."
The order directs an immediate 100-day review across federal agencies to address vulnerabilities in the supply chains of four key products, which includes critical minerals and large capacity batteries for use in electric vehicles.
Crown is developing the Moonlight-Superior Project, a historically operated copper mine in California, located approximately 125 miles from Tesla's Gigafactory outside Reno, Nevada. President Biden's executive order highlights the important role that the Company can play in ensuring the United States has a secure supply of one of the key metals to achieve its transition to a low carbon economy. Copper is a critical material for everything from renewable power generation to electric vehicles. As such, it will be vital that the U.S. has a strong and viable domestic source of copper supply.
Crown is focused on advancing its Moonlight-Superior Project towards the production stage. The Company hopes to support the United States' shift to a green future by providing copper to the myriad of industries involved in the green energy transition.
CEO Steve Dunn commented, "The entire Crown team is working hard to prepare for this year's drilling program as we advance the project back into production. We are excited about the opportunity to be an integral supplier of copper metal to the U.S. domestic market."
