EASTON, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- TeraWulf Inc. (Nasdaq: WULF) (“TeraWulf” or the “Company”), which owns and operates vertically integrated, domestic bitcoin mining facilities powered by more than 91% zero-carbon energy, today provided an unaudited monthly production and operations update for February 2023.

February 2023 Highlights

  • Commenced mining at the Nautilus Cryptomine facility, the first bitcoin mining facility powered by 100% nuclear power in the U.S., exiting the month with approximately 8,000 miners energized.
  • Achieved an average operating hash rate of 2.0 EH/s for the month, exiting February with 2.6 EH/s of self-mining capacity following the energization and ramp of self-mining at the Nautilus facility, which represents an 82% month-over-month increase in self-mining hash rate compared to January.
  • Self-mined 143 bitcoin in February with an average production rate of 5 bitcoin per day.
  • Cost of power in February averaged $7.9k per bitcoin produced, or approximately $0.038/kWh, which is in line with the Company’s targeted power cost of $0.035/kWh across its two mining sites.
  • Construction continued at the Lake Mariner facility, where an additional 50 MW of self-mining capacity is expected to come online in early Q2 2023.

“February was an exceptional month for TeraWulf as the Company achieved another key milestone of completing construction and commencement of mining operations at the Nautilus facility, the first behind-the-meter bitcoin mining facility in the U.S. to utilize 100% nuclear power,” stated Kerri Langlais, Chief Strategy Officer of TeraWulf.

“As we rapidly deploy our 50 MW of zero-carbon self-mining at Nautilus, TeraWulf is busy at Lake Mariner completing construction on Building 2, which is expected to add yet another 50 MW to our capacity, which will increase self-mining capacity another 50% and bring TeraWulf’s total expected operating capacity to 160 MW and 5.5 EH/s in the coming weeks,” added Langlais.

1 Unaudited monthly results are based on estimated power costs, which remain subject to standard month end adjustments.

2 February 2023 metrics include Lake Mariner and the initial ramp of operations at the Nautilus facility.

Production and Operations Update

As of February 28, 2023, the Company had an operational miner fleet of approximately 26,000 miners, comprised of 18,000 operational miners at its wholly-owned Lake Mariner facility in New York (13,000 self-miners and 5,000 hosted miners) and 8,000 self-miners at the nuclear-powered Nautilus facility in Pennsylvania. The Company’s self-mining hash rate capacity increased to 2.6 EH/s as of February 28, 2023 (vs. 1.4 EH/s in January), with an additional 0.5 EH/s of hosted capacity.
