LUXXFOLIO Holdings (LUXX) has announced a significant expansion of the crypto mining facility managed by LUXX Mining Division subsidiary Westblock.

The Luxx Mining Division operates an industrial-scale cryptocurrency mining operation on Navajo Nation land in New Mexico through a power partnership with Navajo Tribal Utility Authority (NTUA).

  • The mining facility can draw up to 15 MW of capacity from the substation, which is currently stepped down to approximately 8MW of power.
  • This expansion will see the power usage increase to its full 15 MW potential.
  • The construction will include additional transformers, buildings, and associated cabling.
  • The fully-funded CAPEX is estimated at US$1.5 million.
  • This is anticipated to allow the company to push computing hash rates to more than 400 PH/s based on current technology and miner availability.

On Aug 2, a groundbreaking ceremony took place.

“Working with the Navajo Nation has been an amazing experience,” said Ken MacLean, President of the Luxx Mining Division.

“From the beginning, there has been an outstanding sense of collaboration. We are delighted to be expanding our operations with the NTUA and we look forward to the mutual benefits this partnership will help us realize.”

The Luxx Mining Division operation houses the high-powered ASIC computers to mine crypto assets. Approximately 59 per cent of the power required is being sourced from carbon-free energy resources. As part of the expansion, LUXXFOLIO and the NTUA will also examine other power sources to minimize costs and ensure environmental sustainability.

The mining partnership has brought revenue and local employment to the Navajo Nation, and the new expansion will increase these benefits further with construction scheduled to begin in September 2021 with completion by early 2022.

Mr. Walter Haase, NTUA General Manager, stated,

“It has been good to see the positive economic contributions of our work with LUXXFOLIO. More jobs along with LUXXFOLIO growing as a customer means economic expansion and even more jobs. We are welcoming of new industry onto our Nation to spur economic growth and being part of the crypto industry as it develops is very exciting.”
