CleanSpark Inaugurates 50 Megawatt Bitcoin Mining Expansion

The nearly $16 million expansion, slated for completion in late spring, will accommodate up to 16,000 miners and solidifies CleanSpark’s position as one of North America’s top bitcoin miners; Upon completion, the company’s hashrate is expected to reach 8.7 PE/s

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 19, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CleanSpark Inc. (Nasdaq: CLSK) (“CleanSpark” or the “Company”), the American Bitcoin Miner™, today announced the start of construction of the second phase of one of its newest sites in Washington, Georgia. The company acquired this campus in August 2022 as part of its recent bear market growth campaign. Once completed, the new phase, which is expected to use only the latest generation of bitcoin mining machines, will add up to 2.2 exahashes per second (EH/s) of computing power to the mining capacity of the company.

The new phase mining machine fleet will consist of the Antminer S19j Pro and Antminer S19 XP models, the newest and most energy-efficient models of bitcoin mining machines available today. Depending on the final number of each model in the mix, the total computing power that will be added to CleanSpark’s bitcoin mining capacity will range from 1.6 PE/s to 2.2 PE/s – an increase of 25 % to 34% from its current hashrate of 6.5 PE/s.

“When we purchased the Washington site in August, we were confident in our ability to expand rapidly, adding this 50 MW to the existing 36 MW of infrastructure,” said Zach Bradford, CEO. “This second phase more than doubles the size of the existing operation. We look forward to expanding our relationship with the City of Washington community and being able to support the construction jobs that will come with this expansion.

“The Washington community and on-site team have been instrumental in the successful deployment of the first phase of the site, which uses primarily low-carbon energy sources, employs next-generation technologies, and is among most energy-efficient and sustainable bitcoin mining operations,” said Scott Garrison, Vice President of Business Development. “This partnership will not only help ensure the timely completion of the next phase, but also make it one of the most reliable mining operations.”

CleanSpark primarily exploits renewable or low-carbon energy sources and continues to follow a capital management strategy of selling a large portion of its mined bitcoins to reinvest in growth. This strategy allowed the company to increase its hashrate from 2.1 EH/s, in January 2022, to 6.2 EH/s, in December 2022, despite a slowdown in the cryptocurrency markets.
