Nova Royalty is a royalty company focused on copper and nickel – the building blocks of the energy transition from fossil fuels to clean energy. Our business model provides investors with copper/nickel price and optionality while limiting exposure to many of the risks of operating companies. We have acquired royalties on multiple world-class, multi-decade copper/nickel development assets that will form the core of the new energy supply chain. The assets are being advanced by major mining companies including Teck, Newmont, Antofagasta, First Quantum and Rio Tinto. We currently have 17 royalties and keep rapidly growing.
