In the realm of mining & exploration stocks, Surge Battery Metals Inc. is truly unparalleled.

Combining an absolutely huge portfolio of claims across the richest regions of Canada and Nevada, they’ve effectively de-risked through diversification at a level that most competitors can’t match.

To manage that portfolio, they’ve assembled a team that begs belief—including Greg Reimer, former VP of Canada’s massive BP Hydro, and Strategic Advisor Chip Richardson, a lifelong banker with experience working with everyone from UBS to Morgan Stanley. 8

And to back all that up, the company has a debt-free balance sheet with $4.2 million in liquid capital; fully funding their planned exploration for the next year, and locking in enough runway for roughly another year after that (with options to increase that cash hoard up to $8MM via warrants if needed).9

Put simply; this company is offering potentially blue-chip value at penny stock prices. 

So with that in mind let’s take a deeper look and find out exactly what Surge Battery Metals has to offer … 

Meeting Insatiable Demand for EVs and Clean Power

As the world gradually transitions to Electric Vehicles (EVs), demand for so-called “Green Metals” used in the production of batteries is soaring even faster. 

Minerals like Copper, Nickel, and Lithium are integral to the process of battery construction, so demand is skyrocketing as more major automakers begin to produce their own EVs.

By one measure, demand for metals like lithium, copper and nickel is soaring 500x faster than demand for the EVs themselves!4 

And remember; this isn’t just a fad. Electric Vehicles are here to stay …

Tesla, for example, is expecting to produce a staggering 20 million EVs by 20305 Other automakers plan to launch a record 100 different pure Battery Electric Vehicles by 2024.6 The US government has even mandated 100% zero-emission vehicles by 2035. 7

That means the transition to electric vehicles is now a matter of “when,” not “if.” And as this transition begins to accelerate, access to Green Metals is prime to become a potential bottleneck that could drive prices even higher than anticipated.

Surge Battery Metals is Stacking the Deck with Prime Mining Prospects

Surge Battery Metals Inc. (OTCMKTS: NILIF, TSX: NILI) is one of the only metal exploration companies on the TSX with resources in lithium, nickel, and copper. 1

The company’s holdings include five primary areas across two jurisdictions, British Columbia in Canada, and Nevada in the United States. Both of these jurisdictions are among the most favorable in the world for exploration and mining thanks to sophisticated infrastructure, friendly regulations, and a wealth of local talent that makes it easy to find geologists and needed personnel.

According to an assessment from major Wall Street firm Network1Financial:

The Canadian properties are at an early stage of exploration. Canada is one of the largest regions in the race to develop efficient and productive EV battery metals, primarily nickel and copper. There are considerable investment opportunities in British Columbia mineral targets. Many skilled metal exploration specialists and technical batteries specialists are based in the country creating an industry foundation that is developing an exhaustive and sustainable supply chain.1

Surge Battery Metals’ nickel projects in British Columbia include 6 mineral claims in the Mount Sidney Williams area (HN4) covering 1863 hectares immediately south of and adjacent to the Decar Project and the Mitchell Range area (N100) covering 8659 hectares, located in Northern British Columbia.

Further down towards the coast, the company’s “Caledonia Project” includes 100% interest in 7 mineral claims including the Caledonia, Cascade and Bluebell claims.

These properties are located just 4.3 miles northwest of the Island Copper Mine, which was once Canada’s third-largest copper producer. The Caledonia project lies within a 31-mile copper belt that runs Northwest of Island Mine.1

Just a Few Miles from Tesla’s New Gigafactory

Meanwhile, in Nevada, the company’s holdings include a large swath of land in Clayton Valley — America’s only producing lithium jurisdiction—and two more projects in the San Emidio Desert and Northern Nevada.

The latter in Northern Nevada includes 95 different claims across 778 hectares, with stream sediment samples that run as high as 1980ppm Li. Promising results from the company’s initial assessment were released on 12/31/21.12

This new project coincides perfectly with Albemarle’s recent announcement that they’d begin tapping into lithium clay resources in 2021.

As reported by Albemarle on January 7, 2021 “…in 2021 the company plans to commence exploration of clay and evaluate technology that could accelerate the viability of lithium production from clay resources in the region,” said Eric Norris, Albemarle President, Lithium.10 

Further west, just a few miles from Tesla’s new Gigafactory is the company’s San Emidio Desert project.11

This area has historically been home to high, documented concentrations of lithium, and phase 1 exploration should be coming to a close by Summer of 2022. Phase 2 of exploration would then involve drilling exploratory holes by the end of 2022.

Why this Massive Portfolio Could be the Key to Surge’s Future Success

Mining and exploration can be an extremely difficult, cost-intensive, and unpredictable business.

New mines can cost a fortune to discover and develop. They can take years and require support & help from host governments. And even after all that investment, fluctuations in metal prices can still wreak havoc on operations.

With these five projects, and the hundreds of claims contained within, Surge Battery Metals has a nearly unrivaled level of flexibility and freedom when it comes to both exploration and subsequent mining.

Depending on prevailing market conditions and early exploration results, the company could prioritize individual sites, then use the windfall to fund further development in other metals.

This level of freedom would also allow the company to potentially spin off successful mining projects for acquisition, in turn funding future development and mining.

All of this is in stark contrast to the state of many micro-cap mining & exploration companies, which are often just connected to a single property or jurisdiction that may (or may not) ever pay out.

Canada’s Top Mining Insiders Behind the Wheel

Just as impressive as the company’s aggressively de-risked portfolio and their stake in some of the world’s friendliest mining jurisdictions are the people behind the scenes making it all happen.

We already mentioned President and CEO Greg Reimer, former Executive Vice-President (EVP) of BC Hydro’s Transmission & Distribution (T&D) business group, who held the EVP position from June 2010 until 2017 leaving BC Hydro to pursue work in the green energy field. For those on the American side of the border, BC Hydro is Canada’s third-largest electric utility, with over $5.7 Billion in annual revenues from 32 hydroelectric facilities.8

In his senior executive capacity, Greg brings a wealth of operational experience and strong leadership from over 26 years in the public sector. At BC Hydro, Greg was responsible for approximately 2,300 employees who plan, design, build, operate and maintain the systems and assets needed to deliver electricity safely and reliably to BC Hydro’s four million customers.

In total, Greg was accountable for $580M in annual capital investments in transmission and distribution infrastructure, and $325M in annual operating and maintenance expenditures. Greg also led a major strategic, multi-year transformation of BC Hydro’s T&D organization that is increasing operational efficiency, improving safety performance, and building a more reliable, modern electricity grid to meet growing customer expectations.

Director Bob Culvert is another key player on the team, with over 35 years’ experience as a professional engineer working on every new frontier from Canada to West Africa, the Indian Subcontinent, and beyond. Over the past decade, he’s been serving as officer and director of several junior resource exploration and development companies. Bob is also a director of Carlin Gold Corporation.

Other key players on the financial side include the aforementioned Strategic Advisor Chip Richardson, and CFO Konstantin Lichtenwald who previously worked with Ernst & Young GmbH, Germany.8

With unrivaled leadership, an aggressively de-risked portfolio, and a share price of just $0.18 (1/5/22), Surge Battery Metals (OTCMKTS: NILIF, TSX: NILI) is a company that should definitely be on your watchlist …
