EMX (TSXV: EMX) (NYSE: EMX) Executes Agreement to Sell Two Nickel-Copper-Cobalt Projects in Swedento Boreal Energy Metals

 

Vancouver, British Columbia - April 11, 2018 (Newsfile Corp.) (Investorideas.com Newswire) EMX Royalty Corporation (TSXV: EMX) (NYSE: EMX) (the "Company" or "EMX") is pleased to announce the execution of a purchase agreement (the "Agreement") for the Njuggträskliden and Mjövattnet nickel-copper-cobalt projects in Sweden (the "Projects"), the latest of a series of transactions with Boreal Energy Metals Corporation ("BEMC"), a recently formed private company focused on battery metal assets in Scandinavia. The Agreement provides EMX with an additional 4% equity stake in BEMC, bringing EMX's aggregate interest to 9.9% of BEMC's issued and outstanding shares. EMX will also receive a 3% net smelter return ("NSR") royalty on the Projects, annual advance royalty payments, and a non-dilution right for the first CDN $3,000,000 of equity raised by BEMC.

The Njuggträskliden and Mjövattnet properties are located along Sweden's "Nickel Line" in the Skellefteå Mining District in central Sweden. Both Projects contain multiple zones of drill-defined nickel-copper-cobalt mineralization, with additional upside discovery potential. Please see www.EMXRoyalty.com for more information.

Commercial Terms Overview. Pursuant to the Agreement, the Njuggträskliden nr 101 and Mjövattnet nr 101 licenses will be transferred to BEMC in exchange for the issuance of shares of BEMC and a royalty interest on the Projects (all dollar amounts in USD, unless otherwise noted):

Overview of Projects. The 9,000 hectare Njuggträskliden and 6,400 hectare Mjövattnet licenses cover multiple drill defined zones of nickel-rich sulfide mineralization. The Projects were recognized during a nationwide reconnaissance exploration program for nickel conducted between 1968 and 1984 by the Swedish Geological Survey ("SGU") and other government entities. This led to the discovery of nickel mineralization at Mjövattnet in 1971, followed by the discovery of Njuggträskliden in 1974. Overall, more than 80 nickel occurrences were identified during the reconnaissance program, with state funded drill programs defining multiple historic mineral resources. Of the resources that were defined in the 1970's and 1980's, Njuggträskliden and Mjövattnet contained some of the highest average grades of nickel1.

Over the course of 20 years, several hundred holes were drilled on the Projects, intersecting both disseminated and massive styles of nickel-copper-cobalt sulfide mineralization associated with a suite of Proterozoic-aged mafic and ultramafic intrusions. The mineralization remains open at depth, and possibly along strike in several cases. More recent work included geophysical surveys and limited re-sampling of historic drill core for platinum group elements (PGEs) and gold. These metals are shown to be enriched at Njuggträskliden and Mjövattnet, but their distribution is not well understood at present, and represents additional upside potential.

The Projects are accessible year-round, with infrastructure including paved roads, water and power, as well as skilled labor in nearby municipalities.

The Agreement for the Njuggträskliden and Mjövattnet Projects with BEMC is another example of the execution of EMX's royalty generation business model. In addition to EMX's direct ownership in BEMC, which also includes an initial 5.9% share equity position resulting from the sale of the Guldgruvan cobalt project, EMX also has an indirect ownership interest via its 19.9% interest in Boreal Metals Corporation (TSXV: BMX), which owns the remaining 90.1% of BEMC. These interests provide EMX and its shareholders immediate exposure to equity upside, while the royalty interests provide longer term exposure to mineral production revenues and the optionality of continued exploration success and discovery.
