VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / July 21, 2022 / Electric Royalties Ltd. (TSXV:ELEC)(OTCQB:ELECF) (“Electric Royalties” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an asset update on its current royalty portfolio.

Brendan Yurik, CEO of Electric Royalties, commented: It’s exciting to see the advancement of our portfolio with two new resource estimates announced during the last month along with continued drilling at two more projects. At our Cancet and Seymour Lake lithium royalties, we have seen very quick progress over the past year with nearly A$100 million raised by the operators and significant work programs completed since November 2021.”

Highlights since the Company’s previous update on June 16, 2022:

  • Seymour Lake Lithium Royalty Green Technology Metals Limited (ASX: GT1) (“Green Technology Metals”) announced on June 23, 2022 a new interim mineral resource estimate under JORC for the Seymour Lake lithium project in northwest Ontario on June 23, 20221. Indicated Mineral Resources more than doubled to 5.2 million tonnes at 1.29% lithium oxide and 161 ppm tantalum pentoxide using a 0.2% lithium oxide cut-off. The estimate reflects incorporation of the Phase 1 drilling program results, as well as four additional pegmatite bodies.Green Technology Metals announced on July 8, 2022 that step out drilling had resumed at the North Aubry deposit. Targeted drilling at the Pye prospect is also expected to recommence shortly.
  • Cancet Lithium Royalty – Winsome Resources Limited (ASX: WR1) (“Winsome”) announced on June 14, 2022 results from the recently completed 22-hole infill drilling campaign at the Cancet lithium project in Quebec, Canada2. The results are from assays of the first 15 of 22 holes, with the remaining assays still pending. Electric Royalties is relying on the information provided by Winsome and is unable to verify the reported drill data.Resource definition drilling is planned for Cancet in fall 2022 and into early 2023. The drill program is designed to further delineate the strike, zonation, and grade continuity of the mineralized pegmatite body, contributing to an inaugural resource which Winsome is aiming to release in early 2023, and to test additional targets.
  • Graphmada Graphite Royalty On June 22, 2022, Greenwing Resources Ltd. (ASX: GW1) (“Greenwing”) reported on its research and development activities in collaboration with Swinburne University of Technology (“Swinburne”). Greenwing’s collaboration with Swinburne has achieved the characterization of graphene as defined by International Organization for Standardization (ISO standards). Greenwing reported that its graphene from the Graphmada Mining Complex in Madagascar has been produced to this high standard in an ISO 9001 facility.This milestone is a key step in Greenwing’s plans to create a patentable and environmentally-friendly process to produce advanced materials such as expandable graphite and graphene. Greenwing aims to utilize these advanced materials in the manufacture of next generation fireproof products, with a focus on mechanical strength and high-quality fire resistance.Greenwing and Swinburne will further their research and development activities in the coming months by optimizing the graphene percentage for strength and fire-resistant properties for use in advanced materials and products, commencing the manufacture of next generation prototypes, and undertaking further analysis of fire resistant and mechanical properties.On July 12, 2022 and based on recent drilling activity, Greenwing released an updated mineral resource estimate under the JORC Code for Graphmada3. Greenwing has expanded the Graphmada Mineral Resource, increasing the Measured and Indicated Mineral Resource (“M+I”) by a factor of 5 to 31 million tonnes at 4.8% Fixed Carbon, with total M+I contained graphite now nearly 1.6 million tonnes. Inferred Resources nearly doubled to 30.9 million tonnes at 4.5% Fixed Carbon. Resources are reported at a 3% cut-off grade. Current feasibility studies will focus on the potential for expanded production levels; a concept study will also be completed to determine the potential to supply both advanced material and lithium battery anode markets.
  • Millennium Copper-Cobalt Royalty – Metal Bank Limited (ASX: MBK) announced on July 7, 2022 first assay results from the Phase 1 reverse circulation infill program and step-out drilling program at the Millennium cobalt-copper-gold project in Queensland, Australia4. Electric Royalties is relying on the information provided by Metal Bank and is unable to verify the reported drill data.Ongoing diamond drilling includes shallow, large-diameter core holes for metallurgical samples as well as infill holes. Deeper diamond drilling for resource infill, exploration target confirmation, structural information, and geochemical and geometallurgical sampling will follow.
