IONE, CA, May 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Purebase Corporation (OTCQB:PUBC) (“Purebase” or the “Company”), a diversified resource company, headquartered in Ione, California, announced today that it has entered into an agreement with U.S. Mine LLC to acquire the right to access up to 100M tons of certain raw clay materials. These clay materials will be targeted for use as a supplementary cementitious material (SCM) for use in the production of lower carbon cements.
In consideration for this right to access these raw clay materials, Purebase shall pay $50M to U.S. Mine LLC through delivery of a convertible promissory note.

We believe the demand for greener cements justifies the need for Purebase to obtain the rights to access up to 100M tons of clay materials from US Mine LLC.”
