Nomad Royalty Company Ltd. (TSX: NSR) (OTCQX: NSRXF) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with private vendors to acquire an effective 0.351% net smelter return royalty on the producing Caserones mine located in the Atacama region of Chile for a cash consideration of US$27.25 million. Under the terms of the Agreement, Nomad will be entitled to the Q2 dividend payment from Compania Minera Caserones  (expected during Q3). The acquisition of the Royalty is in addition to the effective 0.28% net smelter return royalty on the Caserones mine purchased in May 2021. Following the completion of the transaction, Nomad will hold an effective 0.63% net smelter royalty on the Caserones mine, having invested a total of US$50.25 million.

 

Transaction Highlights

 

  • Increases exposure to a large scale producing mine in Chile
  • Increases royalty interest in a prudent and measured manner – adding to existing asset
  • Strengthens Nomad’s free cash flow profile
  • Greater exposure to an operating mine with a large land package and in proximity of large copper discoveries:
    • Los Helados – NGEX Minerals (10 kilometres)

Transaction Details

As part of the transaction, Nomad will acquire shares representing a 37.5% ownership interest in CMC, a private Chilean contractual mining company which holds the payment rights to 32.5% of a 2.88% net smelter return royalty on the Caserones mine. Upon closing, Nomad will become a registered shareholder of CMC and will be party to a shareholders agreement which provides for, among other things, distribution of all royalty payments net of Chilean income taxes.
