It is my great pleasure to welcome you as investors in Surge Battery Metals as we successfully list on not only the TSX Venture Exchange Market, but also on OTCQB Markets. These listings serve to facilitate a broad trading platform for our North American investors.
While we are at an early stage in developing our assets, I am, along with the board and wider team of geological experts at Surge Battery Metals, determined to grow our business into a leading Western Hemisphere energy metals explorer. Here, we are capitalising on the opportunity to look for important metal deposits and operate in several of the world’s most productive mining jurisdictions. We currently have several promising mineral exploration properties in some of the world’s most favourable mining jurisdictions, namely lithium exploration projects in Nevada (USA) and a nickel exploration project in British Columbia (Canada).
Our strategy is clear: we are well-placed with our existing balance sheet and world-class locations for our exploration properties. This positioning will support the continued development of our current projects. We are also in a strong position to look to acquire further quality assets, such as strategically placed copper, nickel and lithium exploration projects, as well as additional exploration acreage and brownfield development projects to support our future growth.
While the strength of our asset base is a differentiator, our core strength is in the quality of our team. With the oversight of best in class explorers, operators, and industry partners we will have a sharp focus on effectively delivering our growth projects, to build long-term value for all of you that have made the decision to invest in Surge Battery Metals. We have recently added some key international banking and geological experts to our team, so we believe we are uniquely poised for growth within our industry.
We believe emphatically in accountability and transparency in the way that we conduct our business and this includes an active dialogue with you, our shareholders. I look forward to meeting with many of you in the future and updating you on our future progress.
The journey ahead for Surge Battery Metals is an exciting one and I look forward to sharing it with you.
