The resource royalty business has proven to be lucrative, especially for companies such as Franco-Nevada Corporation, which has generated compounded average annual investor returns of more than 21% during the past 13 years.

These royalty companies lend money to resource developers in return for a percentage of future production. They can also purchase existing royalties, in which they consider undervalued. It has proven to be an attractive financing option for resource juniors that want to avoid excessive shareholder dilution.

Nova Royalty currently owns 15 royalties, 13 of which are in Canada. Some of the key ones include a 2.0% Net Smelter Royalty (NSR) on the Dumont nickel project in Quebec, the world’s second largest undeveloped nickel deposit, and a 2.0% NSR on Teck/Newmont joint venture NuevaUnión in Chile, one of the world’s largest undeveloped copper projects.

Nova Royalty’s non-executive Chairman is Brett Heath, founder and CEO of Metalla Royalty & Streaming Ltd. (TSXV:MTA). Shares of MTA have surged more than 410% in less than three years since going public.

Nova Royalty Corp. shares have climbed 169% since it began trading on the Toronto Venture exchange on October 1, 2020.
