Welcome to Accend Capital

Accend Capital Corporation (“Accend or the Company”) is an exploration stage mining company focused on the discovery of significant new cobalt deposits. Cobalt is a critical element in lithium ion battery technologies used in electric vehicles and energy solutions. With the rapid adoption of electric battery technologies new sources of cobalt supply are urgently needed.

Currently some 60%+ of global cobalt supply originates from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) which faces significant child labour and ‘conflict minerals’ issues. Accend is focused on discovering new cobalt supplies in areas of the world which do not utilize child labour and where cobalt production is ‘conflict free’. The Company’s initial focus is exploring its 100% owned Silverside property which is situated close to the town of Cobalt, Ontario where cobalt has been mined historically and significant cobalt exploration is currently underway.

Accend believes that its core team has the background, skill set and key relationships globally to successfully position Accend as a key new entrant into the cobalt markets and to drive shareholder value.
