It added that DGWA will collaborate with NQ Minerals to help gain investor awareness and drive investment opportunities from the European financial markets and will provide investor relations services to help the company position itself in the German-speaking financial markets.
In a statement, NQ Mineral's chairman David Lenigas commented: "We are delighted to be partnering with DGWA to attract European and especially German-speaking investors and bring the NQ Minerals opportunity to the European capital markets. Due to the increasing imperative for sustainability throughout the value chain from EU governments, the industry as well as consumers, NQ is well-positioned to capitalise on these developments in the EV and Energy Storage Systems (ESS) space. NQ's conflict-free metals production from Australia will resonate well in German investors.
"Moreover, the commercial production and expansion plans of our Hellyer base and precious metals mine, as well the Company's plans to bring its Beaconsfield Gold Mine back into production provides an excellent opportunity, particularly for precious metals investors in Germany. Germany's gold demand per person is one of the highest worldwide according to the World Gold Council."
