TNR Gold Corp. is working to become an energy metals royalty company.
TNR, through its lead generator business model, has been successful in generating high quality exploration projects in the Americas and Europe. With the Company’s expertise, resources and industry network, it identified the potential of the Los Azules copper project in Argentina and now holds a 0.36% NSR Royalty on the prospect.
At its core, TNR provides significant exposure to gold and copper through its holdings in Alaska (the Shotgun gold porphyry project) and Argentina, and is committed to continued generation of in-demand projects, while diversifying its markets and building shareholder value.
TNR is a major shareholder of International Lithium Corp. (TSXV:ILC) (“ILC”), a green energy metals company that was created through the spinout of TNR’s energy metals portfolio in 2011. ILC holds interests in lithium projects in Argentina, Ireland and Canada. TNR continues to hold approximately 15% of the outstanding shares of ILC.
TNR retains a 1.8% NSR Royalty on ILC’s Mariana lithium property in Argentina. ILC maintains a right to repurchase 1.0% of the NSR on the Mariana property. The Company would receive $900,000 on exercise of the repurchase right. The project is being advanced in a joint venture between ILC and Ganfeng Lithium International Co. Ltd., a leading lithium product manufacturer seeking to secure its raw materials supply
