Remember the rare earth metals craze? If not, know that early investors made enormous amounts of money by catching that trade ahead of the crowd. Why bring that up? Because it’s happening again. But this time, the focus is on the earth metals needed to perpetuate the growth of the EV industry, which is expected to become a $46 trillion market in the next three decades. And publicly traded Surge Battery Metals, Inc. (OTC: NILIF) may offer all the exposure needed to tap into this lucrative long-term market play.
The better news- while the rare earth metals market faded, the EV market is here to stay.
In fact, with 18 of the largest 20 automakers increasing focus on EV design and production, mining these metals can be a more valuable proposition than finding gold. Actually, while the valuable copper, nickel, and lithium may not have the price tag of gold, it’s often easier to mine. Hence, pound for pound, being positioned as a producer of these metals today, can provide potentially exponential growth for companies targeting the niche opportunity. Surge Metals is.
Better still, as automakers and battery producers rush to ink supply deals with miners, it proves they are in the right market at the right time. And like all opportunities, timing can be everything. Moreover, beyond timing, Surge has the resources in place, already capitalizing on the enormous potential from mining these valuable metal deposits with operations in British Columbia and Nevada. The goal is simple. Become a major supplier of battery metals to meet the global demand for clean energy. At the same time, earn substantial profits for its shareholders.
That’s happening now. And with the EV markets no longer an “if’ proposition, Surge is positioned as an early contender to reap maximum rewards. Thus, its $0.24 share price could be the starting point for a surge during the end of 2021 and the start of 2022. It could also put this under-the-radar company onto the screens of potential clients across the globe.
Why Surge Battery Metals?
And therein lay part of the attraction. Just because Surge isn’t widely known doesn’t mean they won’t capture a big piece of the low carbon economy. Sometimes, being small has its advantages.
Better still, being nimble in a fast-moving market can turn big ambitions into revenue-generating businesses. That’s Surge’s plan. Attack the markets with an efficient strategy to mine and meet skyrocketing demand for copper, nickel, and lithium…the core metals needed to make the EV movement possible.
The need is so high that while the vehicle sector may experience an expected 15X increase in demand, the battery metals market is pegged to enjoy as much as 500X that level. And the applications for its mined products are vast and should increase further as billions get spent on R&D programs to make EV the standard over the next few decades.
Surge Battery Metals, by the way, has already attracted the attention of investors. Earlier this year, they sent share prices higher by 375%. Better yet, those investors also drove Surge’s market cap higher by 1408% over the five months from December to April 2021. And with funds in place to meet its 2021 exploration targets, those gains could continue as mining turns into dollars.
Gauging the industry, it’s apparent that Surge’s opportunities are here for the long term.
Electric Vehicles Rise To Popularity
Indeed, the Electric Vehicle Industry has gained traction throughout the past decade but became increasingly popular with the rise of Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA). But it’s no longer only Tesla leading the charge. Almost every major car manufacturer is experimenting with hybrid and electric cars to encourage fewer carbon emissions into the atmosphere. They are smart to do so, and it may be a means to long-term survival. Any scenario bodes well for Surge. After all, battery metals are needed to facilitate that growth. And the trajectory of that market is decidedly higher.
In 2020, EV sales rose over 40% from the previous year. In just one year, that amount of growth signals that the general public’s views on climate change and electric vehicles are changing. And with Forbes predicting that around 90% of battery demand will come from within the EV industry, expect Surge Battery Metals to stay in fashion.
Better yet, Surge’s explorations are designed to mitigate risk, utilizing prospecting, geological mapping, and rock and soil sampling to determine which properties provide the quickest and most efficient revenue-generating opportunity. The company tests geological sites for their composition, which maximizes value as the results give a solid calculation of its ROI. The more excellent news is that there is no shortage of demand for their mined metals.
Copper, nickel, and lithium demand is forecasted to increase 15x by 2030 to match the interest in electric cars. Thus, its market is both massive and provides pricing power. Moreover, Surge’s exploration projects are fully funded for 2021 and are even ESG mandated to support a cleaner future. That, too, is a big deal.
ESG (Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance) mandated companies are projected to grow almost 3x as fast as non-ESG-mandated businesses. That’s especially true as policies shift to prioritize environmental sustainability for the future. In short, technology that helps reduce oil demand and present carbon-neutral opportunities are getting regulatory priority. Hence, having this ESG distinction puts Surge in a position to expand its operations quickly as new opportunities emerge.
Surge’s Explorations Supply A Growing Demand
And growth would add to an already busy schedule. Surge Battery Metals is already committed to recovering the metal assets from three regional mining projects. Even better, each location has specialized infrastructure and resources that broaden the company’s reach.
Its British Columbia operations mine for copper, nickel, and other resources. Two locations are in play. First, its Caledonia location, located within a 31-mile long copper belt and 7 miles away from BHP’s Island Copper Mine, is showing high recovery rates for copper and silver across the 4,302-acre allotment. Its second location in Central British Columbia is close to another substantial nickel project, which typically extends the prospects of another large pool of assets. Also, materials such as hard nickel, cobalt, chromium, and awaruite are at this site, contributing considerably to the production of EV batteries as well. Still, there’s more.
Surge also presides over the Northern Nevada Lithium Project alongside Lithium America, currently America’s only lithium producer. The company’s strategic planning, in addition to element-rich locations, adds to the ability to send Surge valuations higher as the combination of assets along with its market timing can attract substantial client interest.
Of course, that would bode well for Surge and its investors.
Being Early Has Its Advantages
Undoubtedly, by Surge Battery Metals being early to the market, its chances for success are amplified. In a sense, their opportunity can be compared to Molycorp in the rare earth metal days, which saw its valuation soar from millions to billions almost overnight. Of course, debt was their downfall. However, that’s not the case for Surge. They are well-positioned and currently well-funded to expand and maximize its operations.
The better news is that while the sector presents enormous opportunities today for miners like Surge Battery Metals, the future will be exponentially larger. And that opens a host of strategic options for Surge in the process. Keep in mind, sitting on assets is valuable too. Thus, what’s in the ground as proven reserves is also a potential and significant value driver for the company.
Know this, too. While the EV Industry is already substantial in dollar terms, it’s still setting up for more significant growth as decision-makers worldwide continue to direct policy to reflect the perils associated with climate change. That’s also good news for Surge Battery Metals.
Moreover, with three element-mining locations producing the materials needed for EV battery production, its current $15.6 million market cap may be missing the mark. Substantially so. In fact, this fully-funded, ESG compliant company at current levels presents a compelling opportunity to gain exposure into what could become one of the most critical industries in a generation.
Thus, while there are many reasons to like Surge Battery Metals, one, in particular, says it all. They are in the right sector at the right time. And with trillions up for grabs over the next decade, that’s a pretty great place to be.
