Frontier Lithium Acquires 2.5% NSR For Pak Lithium Project

Frontier Lithium (TSXV: FL) this morning announced that it has acquired the net smelter royalty that was outstanding on its flagship PAK Lithium Project. The royalty, or NSR, was acquired via the payment of a combination of both cash and shares.

The repurchase of the royalty didn’t come cheap in terms of upfront costs, with the company effectively paying $5.0 million for the 2.5% royalty. Total consideration consisted of a cash payment of $4.0 million, as well as the issuance of 1.0 million shares at a price of $1.00.

The purchase of the NSR follows the release of a positive preliminary economic assessment for the property earlier this year. The PEA outlined a life of project revenue figure of $8.52 billion for the proposed mine to lithium hydroxide chemical/hydromet plant facility. The assessment effectively outlined a post tax net present value with an 8% discount of $974.6 million for the project, as well as an IRR of 21%.

Frontier Lithium last traded at $0.99 on the TSX Venture.
