The rebuilding of Ukraine is going to require a substantial amount of steel. What better than to have the iron ore used to produce this steel come from a new domestic mine with ultra-high 68% iron content, which will significantly reduce carbon emissions in the production of steel, as Black Iron Inc. (the “Company” or “Black Iron“) is planning to construct.

The Canadian Ukraine Chamber of Commerce (“CUCC“) is hosting a Rebuild Ukraine Business Conference at the King Edward Hotel in Toronto on Wednesday, November 23 from 8am until 7pm that will be attended by several prominent speakers including:

  • Chrystia Freeland, Canada’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance
  • Yuliia Svyrdenko, Ukraine’s First Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Economy
  • Larisa Galadza, Ambassador of Canada to Ukraine
  • Yuliya Kovaliv, Ambassador of Ukraine to Canada
  • Artem Shevalev, Alternate Board Director, European Bank for Reconstruction & Development

Black Iron is proud to be a sponsor of this important event. If you would like to participate in this conference or review more information about the event, click on the link below to go to CUCC’s website.

Black Iron’s management is actively monitoring initiatives currently being developed in the private and public sectors to fund Ukraine’s rebuilding to make them aware of our Shymanivske iron ore project (“Project“). It is the Company’s view that there will be a tremendous amount of investment in Ukraine upon there being peace. Black Iron’s well advanced development stage Project can contribute meaningfully to this rebuilding while providing strong economic returns to investors in a more environmentally responsible manner.
