Assay TV catches up with Alex Tsukernik, president and CEO of Nova Royalty (TSXV: NOVR). Nova Royalty is a royalties company focused on acquiring tier-one copper and nickel projects. It currently holds a royalty portfolio of 13 exploration assets, seven development assets, and one producing asset.
Alex describes copper and nickel as being critical elements of the global transition to clean energy. Nova believes this unprecedented demand has caused copper and nickel to become increasingly scarcer, especially in the face of a growing deficit triggered by the demand for global net-zero targets and limited new mine production.
Some of Nova’s most significant acquisitions range from the Dumont nickel project, Quebec, Copper World and Rosemont, U.S., and the Taca Taca project, South America.
