Nickel 28 is an innovative battery metals focused investment vehicle with a focus on metal streaming and royalty agreements offering our investors exposure to metals integral to key technologies of the electric vehicle and energy storage markets.
Investor demand for battery materials such as nickel and cobalt, has grown significantly over the past few years. Additionally, new sources of mine financing will be required over the coming years to meet forecasted demand for critical battery metals. By purchasing current and future mined production of battery metals, Nickel 28 is positioned to take advantage of the early stages of the battery metals upcycle where large-scale, base metals producers are actively seeking to leverage byproduct metals to fund mine expansion and repay debt using alternative, non-dilutive sources of capital.
The Company acquired an 8.56% joint-venture interest in the producing, long-life and world-class Ramu Nickel Cobalt Operation located in Papua New Guinea which provides the company with significant attributable nickel and cobalt production. In addition, the Company manages a portfolio of 13 nickel and cobalt royalties on development and exploration projects in Canada, Australia and Papua New Guinea. The Company will continue to invest in a battery metals-focused portfolio of streams, royalties and direct interest in mineral properties containing battery metals.
Nickel 28 believes the acceleration of global demand for electric vehicles, driven by strong improvements to battery technology and increased engagement from traditional automotive manufacturers, will continue to support positive market dynamics for battery metals over the next 10 years and, provide shareholders with significant potential value appreciation through the company’s acquisition of battery metals focused assets. The company’s acquisition strategy is to fully exploit current market opportunities to invest in streams and royalties, and deliver growth as the leading battery metals investment vehicle.
Nickel 28 applies a disciplined investing and operating approach and is actively pursuing battery metals streaming and royalty opportunities that could provide shareholders with near-term revenue and cash flow, diversified asset exposure, and additional future avenues for growth.
