Electra Battery Materials (NASDAQ:ELBM) stock is on the rise Tuesday as the company’s shares continue to rally on a cobalt supply agreement.

According to a press release from Electra Battery Materials, it has extended a supply agreement for battery-grade cobalt with LG Energy Solution. That will see it supply the lithium-ion battery maker with 19,000 tons of cobalt over a five-year period.

“LG Energy Solution continues to strengthen its position as a global leader in the electric vehicle supply chain through its investments in Ontario and active collaboration with Canadian companies developing critical minerals and battery materials.”
