Brendan Yurik , CEO of Electric Royalties, highlights "It's only been a month since our last asset update in which there was significant progress across most of the Company's portfolio; we now have several major new updates to announce.

  • Sayona Mining is steadily advancing the Authier lithium project towards production with major approvals, metallurgy and financing in June and July alone.
  • Manganese X released a NI 43-101 resource with 50% more tonnage than the previous estimate at the Battery Hill manganese project. The company also announced that they will be progressing directly to a Feasibility Study given the extensive work already completed on the metallurgy in partnership with Kemetco over the past two years.
  • The Seymour Lake lithium project, on which we acquired a royalty in February of this year, is now being advanced by an A$8.7 million joint venture.
  • Global Energy Metals has signed a joint venture to advance the Millennium copper-cobalt project with initial work programs expected to begin this month.

In the past month alone over $50 million has been raised by operating partners to fund and advance assets over which we hold royalties; it's an exciting positive trend across our entire portfolio and beneficial to Electric Royalties shareholders."

A qualified person has not done sufficient work to validate the historical estimate and Electric Royalties is not treating it as current mineral resources. It is believed that the JORC compliant resource is relevant and of a reliable nature; however, additional drilling and geological modelling was recommended in the 2019 report (see below) to upgrade the estimate to be a current resource.
  • MBK's initial exploration program at Millennium will commence in the first week of July.

Altech Chemicals Ltd Interview with Chief Financial Officer Martin Stein

Perth, Australia (ABN Newswire) - Altech Chemicals Limited (ASX:ATC) (FRA:A3Y) advises that an interview featuring Chief Financial Officer Mr Martin Stein with The Market Herald is now available for viewing on the following YouTube link:

https://youtu.be/htPMFUnMuxw

as well as at the Company's website www.altechchemicals.com.

In the interview, Martin discusses Altech's Preliminary Feasibility Study in relation to its 10,000tpa plant planned to be built in Germany for its patented technology and trademarked battery material product Silumina AnodesTM, a recent visit by Altech's executive management team to Germany, and also provides an update on Altech's Silumina AnodesTM pilot plant currently being constructed in Germany.



About Altech Chemicals Ltd:

Altech Chemicals Limited (ASX:ATC) (FRA:A3Y) is aiming to become one of the world's leading suppliers of 99.99% (4N) high purity alumina (Al2O3) through the construction and operation of a 4,500tpa high purity alumina (HPA) processing plant at Johor, Malaysia. Feedstock for the plant will be sourced from the Company's 100%-owned kaolin deposit at Meckering, Western Australia and shipped to Malaysia.

HPA is a high-value, high margin and highly demanded product as it is the critical ingredient required for the production of synthetic sapphire. Synthetic sapphire is used in the manufacture of substrates for LED lights, semiconductor wafers used in the electronics industry, and scratch-resistant sapphire glass used for wristwatch faces, optical windows and smartphone components. Increasingly HPA is used by lithium-ion battery manufacturers as the coating on the battery's separator, which improves performance, longevity and safety of the battery. With global HPA demand approximately 19,000t (2018), it is estimated that this demand will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 30% (2018-2028); by 2028 HPA market demand will be approximately 272,000t, driven by the increasing adoption of LEDs worldwide as well as the demand for HPA by lithium-ion battery manufacturers to serve the surging electric vehicle market.

Altech Chemicals Ltd Update of High Purity Alumina Project

Perth, Australia (ABN Newswire) - Altech Chemicals Limited (ASX:ATC) (FRA:A3Y) is pleased to provide an update on its Malaysian high purity alumina (HPA) project, and its continuing efforts to close project finance.

Highlights

- KfW IPEX-Bank continues to be in full support of the Company's Malaysia HPA project

- German Government Export Credit Agency Euler Hermes extends US$170m loan cover

- EPC contractor SMS group reiterates support of the HPA project

- Work continues on US$144m Green Gond offer

- Project level equity funding is being advanced by US based DelMorgan

Managing director Iggy Tan, accompanied by executive management, recently completed a visit to Europe.

The visit included a meeting with German government owned KfW IPEX-Bank, during which the bank was briefed on the status of Altech's secondary project finance initiatives - a US$144m green bond offer and the US$100m project level equity funding initiative. KfW IPEX-Bank confirmed its continued support for the project, and its commitment to the senior loan facility of US$190m. Importantly, Euler Hermes, the German government export credit agency, has renewed the US$170m export credit cover (guaranteed) for the KfW IPEX Bank senior loan facility. Both KfW IPEX-Bank and Euler Hermes acknowledged the headwinds facing project finance close from disruptions caused by the pandemic in the last few years as well as the current market uncertainty exacerbated by the Ukraine crisis in Europe.

A meeting was also held with Altech's long-standing strategic engineering partner and metallurgical consultant SMS group GmbH ("SMS"). SMS is contracted to construct the Malaysian HPA plant, and like KfW IPEX-Bank and Euler Hermes, SMS reiterated that it continues to be supportive of the Company's HPA project and looks forward to re-starting work on site. Altech and SMS agreed to extend the long stop date on the HPA plant's EPC contract.

Altech continues to work with London based structuring agent Bedford Row Capital Plc and Perth based Bluemount Capital (WA) Pty Ltd to finalise a US$144m green bond offering. Detailed presentations and discussions with interested parties are ongoing, and these are expected to continue.

In parallel with the bond offering, Altech is continuing with its endeavours to secure commitments for a project equity investment of US$100M. US Based global investment bank DelMorgan & Co. has advanced several leads and potential investors in relation to this. Presentations by Altech and detailed discussions with interested parties are ongoing.

Whilst headwinds in the current equity and financial markets are challenging, management remains committed to the project finance process, and for a positive project finance outcome.

In Malaysia, the HPA plant site within the Tanjung Langsat Industrial Complex remains in sound condition.

Regular site maintenance work is undertaken and permanent site security is in place. The already constructed maintenance workshop, electrical substation and storm water management infrastructure remain in as-constructed condition.
