Electric Royalties Provides Update On Six Core Assets Within Rapidly Developing Royalty Portfolio

Electric Royalties Ltd (TSX-V:ELEC, OTC:ELECF) revealed strong growth in its global royalty portfolio since its last asset update in September, including several developments across assets in its battery metals royalty portfolio.
CEO Brendan Yurik told investors that since September, operators of the projects in which the company holds royalties have raised over $40 million for the advancement of those assets, all occurring at no cost or dilution to Electric Royalties.
From well-funded development plans for the Cancet and Seymour Lake projects, to upcoming economic studies at Battery Hill, to the progress on moving Authier and Graphmada toward production, Yurik said 2022 is shaping up to be a “transformational year”.
“It’s been a tremendous year overall with a heavy weighting towards lithium within our current portfolio and lithium prices up substantially this year,” Yurik said in an update to investors.
“We anticipate major catalysts across most of our portfolio in 2022 so despite the robust asset advancement we’ve seen in 2021, we’re expecting 2022 to be even more exciting.”
