Co-founded by Cheryl Brandon and Kamal Toor, new investment firm Kinterra Capital has raised $565 million to invest in mining and processing plants for the clean energy transition.
Targeting minerals like lithium, copper, nickel, cobalt, and graphite, Kinterra focuses on projects in the U.S., Canada, and Australia. The firm plans to integrate projects into the supply chain by collaborating with downstream automakers and battery manufacturers who will use mined materials for things like electric cars and grid batteries.
The firm has already made several investments, including a major stake in Michigan’s White Pine North copper mine. This initiative aligns with the U.S. government’s push for domestic clean energy supply chain development, backed by the Inflation Reduction Act.
