Vancouver, British Columbia. September 29, 2020 – Nova Royalty Corp. (“Nova” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the common shares of the Company (the “Common Shares”) are expected to begin trading on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSX-V”) at the opening of the market on or about Thursday, October 1, 2020, under the ticker symbol “NOVR”.
Alex Tsukernik, Nova’s President and CEO, commented, “The Nova team is excited to join the TSX Venture Exchange and creating the premier royalty player in the building blocks of clean energy - copper and nickel. We want to thank everyone associated with bringing the Company from its founding in July 2018 to this exciting point in our history”.
In connection with the filing of the Company’s final non-offering prospectus dated August 14, 2020 and the Company’s listing on the TSX-V, the Company previously raised C$5,846,586 through the private placement of 11,693,172 special warrants (“Special Warrants”). On August 14, 2020, the Special Warrants were automatically exercised, and holders of the Special Warrants were issued one Common Share, and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”) for each special warrant held. Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share at an exercise price of C$1.00 per Warrant share for a period of 24 months following the date of issuance of the Special Warrants, subject to adjustment and acceleration in certain circumstances.
The key assets of the Company are the following:
- A 2.0% NSR on the NuevaUnion project in Chile, a joint venture between Teck Resources and Newmont. NuevaUnion is one of the world’s largest copper development projects
- A 2.0% NSR on the Dumont nickel project in Quebec, wholly owned by Waterton Global Resource Management. Dumont is a fully permitted, shovel-ready project, which is among the largest undeveloped nickel projects in the world
On September 8, 2020, Nova announced the acquisition of a portfolio of nine royalties from Transition Metals Corp., headlined by a 1.0% NSR on the Janice Lake copper-silver project in Saskatchewan being advanced by Rio Tinto.
Nova is a royalty company focused on providing investors with exposure to the building blocks of clean energy - copper and nickel. The Company is headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia and has obtained approval to list its common shares on the TSX Venture Exchange.
