The company recently announced that it would expand mining capacity by 200 megawatts in west Texas until the spring of 2023, with the goal of adding an extra 300 megawatts in the future.

“We intend to continue our efforts of obtaining non-dilutive capital to finance our growth capex needs,” said CFO of CleanSpark Gary Vecchiarelli. “It is worth noting that we have not drawn on our ATM since November.”
