Tesla Energy rEVolution And The Golden Age For Copper: A Million Tons Of Copper Is On The Way - It Will Not Be Enough.




Bloomberg brings copper into the headlines again with their analysis of "bullish spirits" observed among analysts at the industry event last week. This is not even a rhetorical question for all insiders: "A Million Tons of Copper Is on the Way - It May Not Be Enough". It can be pronounced with certainty - it will not be enough. I will go here with Goldman Sachs this time. Two major trends are colliding which will define the supply and demand for the Green Energy Metal. We have exponential growth of sales for electric cars, charging, solar and wind energy systems. And lack of new discoveries and head grade going down across all copper industry.




Red metal goes green in the Tesla Energy rEVolution. Goldman Sachs now estimates that copper will be in structural "severe deficits" starting from 2023. And it is happening even before The Switch - the real mass-scale transition to renewable energy generation and when electric cars will affect millions of households all over the world. Despite stormy markets, the smart money was buying all the best copper projects last year. Only new copper giants like Los Azules Copper project under operation by the legendary McEwen Mining can bridge the coming very soon huge supply gap. 




Visual Capitalist presents a brilliant illustration of copper place in the energy rEVolution and particularly in electric vehicles. Smart Grids connecting renewables like Solar and Wind with the grid and charging infrastructure for electric cars will bring another drive for copper demand for very many years to come. Green Energy Metals Royalty Company TNR Gold holds 0.36% NSR Royalty on the entire Los Azules Copper project in Argentina and you can find more information about it in our presentation below.

"We aim to proactively manage our capital and royalty portfolio in order to optimize our holdings and meet strategic goals," commented Kirill Klip, Executive Chairman of TNR. "TNR's strategic initiatives include research and marketing of convertible royalty debentures - debt instruments allowing conversion directly into part-ownership of our royalty holdings; merger and acquisition-related activities aimed at creating partnerships on the basis of our royalty holdings and exploring the opportunities provided by blockchain technology in order to create access to capital allocated for crypto assets. We are actively seeking partners who would like to connect their digital assets with our potential future royalty cash-flow streams. 
"The TNR team has the full support of the Company's investment loan capital provider who backs our business plan and long-term strategic initiatives. It's clear that the decision of our investment loan capital provider earlier this year, to extend the due date of the investment loan by three years, is a resounding show of confidence in TNR's business strategy, asset portfolio and management team. 
"After receipt of debenture loan repayment in February, we have addressed another important issue for TNR by considerably improving our working capital and strengthening the balance sheet. We have the resources to concentrate our efforts on building a premier green energy metals royalty company by maximizing the value of our royalty portfolio of copper and lithium projects that are instrumental in the electric vehicle and green energy sectors. In addition, TNR's business plan includes investigating new strategic acquisitions and developing the Shotgun Gold project in Alaska."
TNR benefits by not being required to contribute any capital to our royalty holdings on the Los Azules copper project and on the Mariana Lithium Project in Argentina. The Company's strategy with the Shotgun Gold Project is to attract a joint venture partnership with one of the major gold mining companies. TNR is actively introducing the project to interested parties. The essence of our business model is to have industry leaders like McEwen Mining and Ganfeng Lithium as operators on the projects that will potentially generate royalty cash flows to contribute and develop significant long-term value for our shareholders.

Red Metal Goes Green During The Tesla Energy rEVolution: Frank Holmes - Will 2019 Be the Year of King Copper?





I would like to share with you today Frank Holmes's article about the big picture for copper and catalyses coming to this market in the next few years. It looks like Energy rEvolution is starting to take out our streets one by one for real with every new Tesla hitting the road. And now, finally, Tesla Model 3 is introducing the best electric cars at the more affordable prices on a truly massive mass-market scale. China is just going parabolic with EVs adoption and its "1000" new EV makers. Tesla Model Y will kill completely the brave idea that cars should be powered by the controlled explosions under the hood with enormous waste of energy and dire consequences to the health of not only the happy riders but the whole planet. The ICE Age is over and it is time to check your portfolios, Ladies and Gentlemen.




Frank Holmes is the must follow in The Switch - tectonic Energy transition happening in the world and all investment implications for the markets which are still mostly running on the oil fumes. He is CEO of U.S. Global Investors and you can follow his blog here and his twitter feed here. Both are highly recommended.




Talking about Mining Alliance of Trust initiative, Frank Holmes is one of the most trusted voices of common sense, sources of wealth of analysis, amazing charts and education for the generation of investors who are looking to stand out of the herd running to the slaughterhouse and gather the real understanding how the global economy really works and what factors are really driving it. And Mr Market, as you already know, lives his very own life which can be detached from any economic fundamentals for years by playing his favourite game aimed at hurting as many amateurs investors as possible. Here where Mining Alliance of Trust can help us all - we have enough risks in this business - we must weed out all bad actors ourselves as the industry. Every single burnt investor matters - they are never coming back.




We have a huge disconnect in our progress of technology and the material base which is making every single gadget tick and all Tesla Energy rEVolution possible. We must build a new EcoSystem which will allow the financing of full mining cycle in the West or face the world where supply chains are controlled by government-sponsored oligopolies. And this is an extremely polite way of describing the cut-throat competition to control the bottlenecks for the supply of critical materials like lithium for example. We need new ideas about how to connect available capital with entrepreneurs who are building our Green Future possible for all. Join our discussion about Blockchain Technology and the importance of Trust for the future of mining and energy.




The copper market is much more diversified than lithium one and China has not got all keys to the global supply yet, but make no mistake - smart money is buying all the best mining projects. Now, after bankers have been driving their Teslas for a few months, they are all getting the idea that electric cars are not just a fad, but this is the future of transport which is coming much faster than a lot of people are anticipating it. Frank provides great insights into this new excitement for the sector and what is driving the people who are making mining possible.




On our front of building the Green Energy Metals Energy Company, TNR Gold Team has delivered a few very important results already in 2019 after announcing our Strategic Initiatives: we have the very strong alliance with all our major shareholders. Our long-term investment loan was extended for another 3 years in order to allow the further growth of valuation for our existing Royalty Portfolio and active exploration of the new M&A opportunities. Our long-standing financing partner who is providing us capital is supporting our vision, strategic initiatives and the most important, our TNR Gold management Team. Strategic Controlling and active management of our investment portfolio have allowed us to announce the repayment in full of ILC Debenture earlier in February and now we are ready to move forward building our Company for the benefit of all shareholders.




This is where our business model comes into play. It is very important to mention that we do not need to contribute any CAPEX for our Royalty Holdings in Copper and Lithium. Mariana Lithium is being developed by Ganfeng Lithium - one of the major lithium companies from China. And legendary Rob McEwen is taking very good care of the future for the giant Los Azules copper project in Argentina. You can find more information about our NSR Royalty Holdings on the links below and Frank Holmes will connect the dots for you and explain why Red metal is going Green during the Tesla Energy rEVolution.
