Electric Royalties Ltd. (TSXV:ELEC)(OTCQB:ELECF) ("Electric Royalties" or the "Company") is pleased to announce an asset update on its current royalty portfolio

Brendan Yurik, CEO of Electric Royalties, says, "It's exciting to provide the first update of 2022 with active developments taking place at projects across many of the assets in our royalty portfolio. Drilling is underway on our Cancet, Seymour Lake and Chubb lithium assets. Excellent final metallurgical results have been received for the Battery Hill manganese royalty, and we are very keen to see the results of the upcoming PEA, as we believe this may be a very significant royalty for Electric Royalties.

Our expectation is that progress on plans for production with more detailed timelines for Authier and Graphmada will be forthcoming in the near future. The owner of Authier has recently completed the acquisition of North American Lithium ("NAL") and plans to release a study on restarting this historical producer with Authier forming an integral part of production.

At Graphmada, a graphite mine that was in continuous production for 20 months prior to being placed on care and maintenance with the outbreak of Covid-19, recently finished graphite concentrate testing suggests successful product upgrading. Exploration work completed during the past year indicates a renewed focus and intention to bring the mine back into production. Moreover, clean energy metal prices have jumped significantly over the past year and we expect that trend to continue as additional countries commit to net zero policies. With all of the capital being invested in our assets this year and metal prices as they are, we believe that it should be an eventful year in terms of progress."

Recent highlights include:

  • Authier Lithium Royalty - Emerging lithium producer Sayona Mining Limited (ASX:SYA)(OTCQB:SYAXF) has further enhanced its leading position in North America's lithium sector following new Mineral Resource estimates for its flagship North American Lithium and Authier Lithium Projects in Québec, Canada. The new resource base of the combined deposits should have a positive effect on the contemplated NAL-Authier lithium operation. The restart of NAL and its integration with the Authier deposit is currently the subject of a feasibility study which is expected in the coming weeks (see Sayona Mining's news release dated March 1, 2022).
  • Cancet Lithium Royalty - 2,000-m drilling campaign to commence at the Cancet Project, Quebec, with SGS Geological Services ("SGS") appointed for data review, exploration work and metallurgical test work. Test work at the Cancet Project will build on knowledge gained in previous metallurgical test work and will involve heavy liquid separation, magnetic separation and flotation batch tests (see Winsome Resources [ASX:WR1] news releases dated December 14 and February 14, 2022).
  • Seymour Lake Lithium Royalty - 3,500-meter drilling campaign commenced at the Seymour Lake Project in Ontario in December 2021. Assay results from the first hole returned a thick and continuous intercept of 40 m @ 1.54% Li20 (see Green Technology Metals [ASX:GT1] news release dated January 31, 2022).
  • Chubb Lithium Royalty - Expanded Phase 2 drilling program from 5,000 m to 10,000 m of diamond drilling is planned at the Chubb Project site in Quebec to follow up a successful Spring 2021 Phase 1 drilling program. All drilling permits have been obtained and the Phase 2 Winter 2022 drilling campaign has already commenced (see Newfoundland Discovery Corp's [CSE:NEWD] news release dated January 10, 2022).
  • Battery Hill Manganese Royalty - Successful completion of a planned third and final processing metallurgical phase to support a Preliminary Economic Assessment of the Battery Hill Project in New Brunswick. The results of this phase suggest a novel and innovative purification process can be used to produce high purity manganese sulphate monohydrate (HPMSM). Overall manganese recoveries as high as 80% were confirmed through locked-cycle mass balance calculations on the complete process flowsheet. Impurities were minimized to below 100 ppm, including that of calcium and magnesium, which is a crucial threshold level for battery grade HPMSM (see Manganese X Energy's [TSX-V:MN] news release dated February 1, 2022).
  • Millennium Copper-Cobalt Royalty - Formal earn-in and joint venture agreement with MBK Millennium Pty Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Metal Bank Limited ("MBKM") where MBKM can earn-in up to an 80% interest in the Millennium Copper, Cobalt and Gold Project in Mount Isa, Queensland. In conjunction with significant increases in copper and cobalt prices since the maiden resource was reported, results from exploration success supports an increased exploration target for the Project. MBKM has developed a $1 million three-phase work program including up to 5,500 m of drilling for 2022 to test key outcomes to confirm the exploration target and Resource expansion and development program. MBKM is currently assessing drilling tenders for commencement of phase 1 after the end of the wet season in March 2022 (see Global Energy Metals' [TSX-V:GEMC] [OTCQB:GBLEF] news release dated December 13, 2021).
  • Bissett Creek Graphite Royalty - Minviro Ltd. ("Minviro") has completed an ISO-compliant Life Cycle Assessment on the production of graphite concentrate and lithium-ion battery anode material on the Bissett Creek deposit in central Ontario and benchmarked it against the production of Chinese natural and synthetic graphite and its upgrade into battery anode material. The results of the study show Bissett would not only have a much lower carbon footprint but also have a clear path to carbon neutrality. The study is expected to be made public in the coming weeks.

A 2013 PEA proposed a two phase plan, with the construction of a graphite mine producing 20-25,000 tonnes per year of concentrate and potential for later expansion as measured and indicated resources are large enough to support a higher production rate. Northern Graphite Corp. is currently re-evaluating its development plans in light of the substantial growth in EV/battery markets. The results of this process are expected to be announced in the coming months (see Northern Graphite Corp.'s ([TSX-V:NGC] news release dated February 14, 2022).

  • Graphmada Graphite Royalty - The program of research and development of specialty carbon products has achieved its first milestone - the environmentally friendly production of high quality graphene from Graphmada graphite concentrates. Research into the characterization of large flake graphite concentrates produced from the Graphmada Mining Complex in Madagascar have demonstrated excellent qualities of low impurities, low defects and low oxidation. Exfoliation of these high quality large-flake graphite concentrates has also produced environmentally friendly graphene with excellent qualities (see Greenwing Resources Ltd.'s [ASX:GW1] news release dated December 22, 2021).
  • Mont Sorcier Vanadium Royalty - Assay results for an additional 12 holes from the 2021 infill drill program at the Mont Sorcier iron and vanadium project, at Chibougamau, Quebec. As previously reported, the program consisted of 42 holes comprising 15,178 m of drilling, with all drill holes completed in the North Zone in order to upgrade the resource category to support completion of a feasibility study planned to be undertaken in 2022 (see Voyager Metals Inc.'s [TSX-V:VONE] news release dated February 23, 2022).

David Gaunt, P. Geo., a qualified person who is not independent of Electric Royalties, has reviewed and approved the technical information in this release.

Electric Royalties

Overview

The increasing popularity of electric vehicles and the green energy movement has disrupted the transportation and power industry entirely. By 2050, over 17 countries announced 100 percent zero-emission vehicle targets or goals to phase out internal combustion engines vehicles.

Seeing these unprecedented trends in growth across the electric vehicle market means the demand for key raw materials used in the lithium-ion batteries needed to power these technological innovations could experience significant parallel growth. As prices for these raw commodities grow, market researchers predict more money investment opportunities coming into the sector. Especially for royalty companies with widespread exposure across the market, the investment upside could be significantly advantageous.

Electric Royalties Ltd. (TSXV:ELEC) is a royalty company focused on building a premium portfolio that takes advantage of the demand for a wide range of commodities and critical metals like lithium, vanadium, manganese, tin, graphite, zinc, cobalt, nickel and copper. Focusing on these vital elements leverages the growing demand and global drive toward electrification across virtually all sectors, including transportation, rechargeable batteries, large-scale energy storage, renewable energy generation and more.

As a royalty company, Electric Royalties does not operate mines nor needs large and highly specialized teams to carry on their operations. Likewise, having a robust commodity portfolio helps to diversify investment and mitigate risk for investors and shareholders while leveraging exploration upside, revenue-driven business modelling and more. It currently has a growing portfolio of 17 royalties on assets located primarily in North America and Australia..

The company operates a two-tier approach to royalty acquisition. It has a strategic global focus for projects in politically stable jurisdictions with an emphasis on districts with strong legal and mining frameworks. Additionally, Electric Royalties focuses on lifelong assets with outstanding exploration potential, which leverage near-term production potential, advanced staging, multiple commodity cycles, resource upgrades and producing opportunities.

Unlike other royalty companies, Electric Royalties has an exceptionally robust nine commodity portfolio and a top management team that understands the ins and outs of how the royalty game works. “We’re creating a new royalty where we make sure it’s gross revenue, covers the whole deposit and it’s drafted by us. At this point in time, we do this for a living. Ultimately, you’re going in, and you’re creating and adding some value to a group,” commented Electric Royalties CEO and director Brendan Yurik.

In July 2021, the company announced that it closed a private placement consisting of five million units of the company issued for gross proceeds of CAD$2 million. Each unit consists of one common share of Electric Royalties plus one common share purchase warrant. Completion of the private placement is subject to regulatory approval but advances the company’s plans for additional strategic royalty acquisition.

Electric Royalties Ltd.’s management team is an experienced group of executives and advisors with proven track records of success across multiple related industries like mining, finance and more. Together, their years of expertise primes the company for significant growth in line with the exponential growth forecasted in the demand for sustainable electrification globally.

Key Royalties


Middle Tennessee Zinc Mine Royalty

This producing zinc asset hosts levels of annual production hovering 50,000 tons of zinc concentrate across a 15 year mine year.

Middle Tennessee zinc mines have produced over 2.7 billion pounds of zinc for over 50 years. The strategically positioned zinc mine leverages close proximity and association with Trafigura’s Clarksville smelter, the only primary zinc producer in the US.

Authier Lithium Royalty

The Authier Lithium is a 0.5 percent gross revenue royalty and the project sits in close proximity to the only producing lithium mine in Canada about 45 kilometers northwest of Val d’Or and is operated by Sayona Lithium. It stands as a simple, near-surface deposit with resources defined in one spodumene-bearing pegmatite based on 31,000 metres of diamond drilling. Authier also leverages excellent infrastructure, including existing mining support services, environmentally-friendly low-cost hydroelectric power, gas and road networks.

Sayona Mining Limited completed a revised definitive feasibility study in November 2019 under JORC. Sayona also has a large strategic investment by Piedmont Lithium, who is the only lithium company to have an offtake agreement with Tesla. Sayona Mining has recently completed the acquisition of the Canada Lithium Mine in partnership with Piedmont Lithium and plans to ramp up production at the mine using ore from the Authier project with planned production preliminarily set for 2023.

Graphmada Graphite Royalty

The near-production Graphmada Large Flake Graphite Mining Complex is located in Eastern Madagascar and was in continuous production for 30 months prior to being placed in care and maintenance due to Covid related restrictions put in place at the start of 2020. The operator Bass Metals has been using the down time to look at an expanded production case set to be released in the near future andrecently increased its mineral resource by 41% to 20.2 million tonnes (Mt) of >90% large flake graphite. All mining and processing infrastructure, including roads, bridges, power, camp, tailings dams are in place, along with 40-year mining permits and 20-year landholder agreements. The complex sits adjacent to the main national highway and is110km to the country’s only deep-water port at Toamasina. The royalty is a 2.5 percent gross revenue royalty.

Bissett Creek Graphite Royalty

The Bissett Creek property sits between Ottawa and North Bay in Ontario, Canada. The feasibility stage asset has a potential annual production level of 33,200 tons with a mine life of approximately 21 years at a US$1,800 revenue per ton ratio.

Bissett Creek hosts open pit mining potential and has already seen significant bulk sampling, pilot plant testing and recoveries of over 92.4 percent graphite. The next steps include further exploration and production expansion of some of the highest large flake yields reported from any graphite project globally.

Mont Sorcier Vanadium Royalty

The Mont Sorcier property hosts a large-high-quality Iron resource with significant and extractable Vanadium in a top-tier mining jurisdiction. The one percent gross revenue royalty has an estimated 4.8 million ton iron annual production potential at 65 percent iron and 0.6 percent vanadium. The potential IRR is 33.8 percent.

Exceptionally low titanium content makes the deposit unique to other iron-titanium-vanadium deposits around the world. Low titanium in the deposit allows the iron ore and vanadium processing directly through a blast furnace for potential lower-cost operations and open-pit mining with a life of mine strip ratio of 0.89.

Glencore has entered into a long-term arrangement to support the development of the Mont Sorcier project and is assisting with raising capital to finalize feasibility studies.

Battery Hill Manganese Royalty

Battery Hill is a historic resource that spans 1,228 hectares and leverages fast-tracked feasibility study stage potential. Kemetco currently has operations to develop and commercialize a flow sheet to produce a battery-grade manganese product for the growing electric vehicle and energy storage industries. The property leverages great highway access and transmission lines. Electric Royalties has early-mover potential with Battery Hill as there are no producing manganese mines in North America.

Battery Hill project mineral resource estimate consists of 34.86 million tonnes of Measured and Indicated mineral resources grading 6.42% Mn, plus an additional 25.91 million tonnes of Inferred mineral resources grading 6.66% Mn utilizing a 2.5% Mn cut-off grade. In partnership with Kemetco, they have done extensive metallurgical testing achieving a product with 99.95 percent purity, also with very low contaminants, was considered a transformational achievement as this demonstrated that Manganese X Energy’s Battery Hill manganese could be compliant and suitable for battery manufacturing use in EVs, energy storage and other high-tech applications. A PEA is currently underway.

Seymour Lake Lithium Royalty

Seymour Lake is a 1.5 percent net smelter royalty that covers 16,654 hectares of lithium mineralization hosted in spodumene-bearing pegmatite sills with a thickness of more than 26 meters. Electric Royalties has exercised an AUD$8.7 million option and established a joint venture to progress Seymour Lake and other strategically located lithium projects. The property also has excellent road access near the main CN rail line.

The main pegmatite at the North Aubry prospect is 250 meters wide and 300 meters long and remains open along strike and at depth. Strategic positioning near pegmatites helps to potentially reduce transport costs and leverage easier access to high-quality mineralization in future mining endeavors. Its over 6.58 million ton measured and indicated lithium resource and potential 24,000tpa annual production level are exciting attributes of this royalty for the company to take advantage of.

Millennium Cobalt Royalty

The Australian-based cobalt-copper depository stands open for expansion and sits in the well-established mining district of Mount Isa, Qld. Electric Royalties recently signed an option for Metal Bank Ltd. to earn in and Joint Venture the project.

The royalty leverages a historic resource of inferred 3.1 million tonnes of mineralization at 0.14 percent cobalt, 0.35 percent copper and 0.12 gold grades. A 2018 drill program confirmed connective high-grade cobalt zones and wide cobalt zones with assay results indicating metal grades exceeding prior expectations. Preliminary metallurgical studies have also demonstrated the potential to recover an excess of 91 percent of the cobalt and copper.

Bouvier & Chubb Lithium Royalties

These highly prospective projects sit within the Preissac-Lacorne plutonic complex of the prolific Abitibi Greenstone Belt, the complex forming excellent surrounding mining opportunities for lithium mineralization. The plutonic complex also generated the Quebec Lithium project located 60 kilometers north of Val dOr, Quebec. The royalties stand at two percent gross revenue.

Yalbra Graaphite Royalty

The Yalbra Graphite Project is located 250km North West of Meekatharra and 280km East of Carnavon, Western Australia, and covers an area of 22km². The property has been systematically explored for graphite mineralisation, undertaking mapping, a heli-VTEM survey, several rounds of drilling, petrology, two resource estimates and metallurgy test work. The drilling program resulted in some of the highest grade x thickness graphite drill intercepts reported in Australia.

Glassville Manganese Royalty

The Glassville project comprises 15 claims close to the Battery Hill project. The pre-production asset has a historical resource of over 453,000 manganese mineralization at 11 percent manganese and 8.45 percent iron grades to a depth of 80 meters.

Mount Dorothy Cobalt & Cobalt Ridge Royalties

The 0.5 percent gross revenue royalties include exploration projects located near the Millenium cobalt project, which hosts highly prospective high-quality cobalt, copper and gold mineralization. The royalties operate early-mover advantages and excellent exploration potential as much of the area remains under-explored and limitedly tested.
