Electric Royalties Provides Update On Previously Announced Partial Disposal Of Seymour Lake Royalty

Electric Royalties Ltd. (TSXV:ELEC) (OTCQB:ELECF) (“Electric Royalties” or the “Company”) would like to inform the market of the termination of the previously announced agreement signed on June 27, 2022 to sell 1% of its existing 1.5% Net Smelter Royalty (“NSR”) on the Seymour Lake Lithium Deposit in Ontario, Canada, to Lithium Royalty Corp. (“LRC”). LRC has informed the Company that it is unwilling to waive certain conditions to closing set out in the agreement and the Company accepts LRC’s position that the agreement has terminated. Accordingly, Electric Royalties will retain it’s 1.5% NSR on the Seymour Lake lithium deposit.
Brendan Yurik, CEO of Electric Royalties, commented: “Since signing of the initial LOI an estimate that doubles the mineral resource1 at Seymour Lake has been announced. Further, the price of lithium carbonate has neared all time highs in China of more than $70,000 a tonne2. These factors, coupled with the property owner having just raised A$55M3 to further development at Seymour Lake mean that we are delighted to retain our full 1.5% NSR.”
About Electric Royalties Ltd.
Electric Royalties is a royalty company established to take advantage of the demand for a wide range of commodities (lithium, vanadium, manganese, tin, graphite, cobalt, nickel, zinc and copper) that will benefit from the drive toward electrification of a variety of consumer products: cars, rechargeable batteries, large scale energy storage, renewable energy generation and other applications.
Electric vehicle sales, battery production capacity and renewable energy generation are slated to increase significantly over the next several years and with it, the demand for these targeted commodities. This creates a unique opportunity to invest in and acquire royalties over the mines and projects that will supply the materials needed to fuel the electric revolution.
Electric Royalties has a growing portfolio of 19 royalties, including one royalty that currently generates revenue. The Company is focused predominantly on acquiring royalties on advanced stage and operating projects to build a diversified portfolio located in jurisdictions with low geopolitical risk, which offers investors exposure to the clean energy transition via the underlying commodities required to rebuild the global infrastructure over the next several decades towards a decarbonized global economy.
