Sotkamo Silver and Loiste Sähköverkko have reached an agreement to sell Sotkamo Silver´s power line inclusive the transformer and other equipment. With this deal Loiste wants to strengthen their own power-line. The sale price is 1,3 M€ cash.

The sale releases resources and the Company will instead focus on what we are good at i.e. start construction of the Silver Mine.

"I am pleased with the reached agreement. The capital that will be released in this transaction can be used for construction of the mine and we can better focus on mining instead of transfer of electricity. It is excellent that we have found a solution that will benefit both parties", says Timo Lindborg, CEO of Sotkamo Silver.

“By this deal, we can cost-effectively take advantage of a completed built high-quality power line to secure power supply in the area south of Kuhmo and Sotkamo. We will also participate to create new jobs in Kainuu and promote local businesses." Says Reino Huusko, President of Loiste Sähköverkko Oy
