The mining company is seeking monetary damages and enforcement of certain provisions under an agreement signed by the two companies.

The companies announced their partnership back in October 2021 and Validus agreed to supply 35 MW to Hut 8 in North Bay, Ontario.

However, the mining company said in November last year that its partner "failed to meet its contractual obligations" as scheduled. Validus also demanded payment at a higher rate than specified in the agreement.
