Purebase Corporation attends the Fall 2023 National Concrete Consortium

IONE, CA, Sept. 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Purebase Corporation (OTCPK: PUBC), (“Purebase”) is a diversified mineral resource company headquartered in Ione, California. Purebase Corporation representatives were recently invited to attend the Fall 2023 National Concrete Consortium in Portland, Oregon on September 12-14. In attendance were state officials from over 20 state DOT’s (Department of Transportation). Also in attendance were representatives from the Federal Highway Administration, universities, the National Ready-Mix Association, and numerous concrete-related producers.

Over the course of three days, Purebase representatives had productive interactions with key DOT officials to better understand how Purebase SCM’s (supplementary cementitious materials) utilizing metakaolin could help DOT’s with their challenges to approve and implement SCM’s into their transportation-related projects. Purebase found what it believes to be growing opportunities for its SCM’s in several western states, including Texas in particular, due to the amount of concrete that State consumes across its expansive transportation system.

A common theme at the Consortium was the challenge of locating reliable and consistent sources of SCM’s for use in major projects. Several attendees discussed concerns about starting projects only to find that SCM supplies, at times, were interrupted and in short supply, which negatively impacted their projects.

Scott Dockter, CEO of Purebase Corporation, stated “at the conclusion of this meeting, we realized that one of our potential strengths over other SCM’s is our vast kaolin resource located here in California. Other SCM’s sometimes are located outside of the country which subjects them to supply-chain interruptions. We feel that being a reliable and consistent U.S.-based supplier of SCM’s may be one of our key advantages over other suppliers.”
