Surge Battery Metals Stock Rallies As Demand For Battery Metals And Record High Prices Create Perfect Storm Of Opportunity (OTC: NILIF) (TSXV: NILI)

Though there have been brief periods of upturn, markets remain soundly in bear market territory. In fact, many stocks making up the NASDAQ 100 have reported valuation decreases of more than 25% over the past two quarters. Many small and micro-cap stocks, lacking adequate defense against market fluctuations, are experiencing even stronger declines. However, some small stocks have found their niche and achieved consistent valuation increases in spite of turbulent markets. Surge Battery Metals, Inc. (OTC: NILIF) is an example of how being in the right sector at the right time can be nicely rewarded. Surge has achieved an increase of more than 34% since the start of February, and it is building momentum to increase its valuation much further.

Why is Surge a wise investment? Well, savvy investors don't stop investing when markets turn down. Instead, they redirect those assets toward opportunities that others are missing. With skyrocketing demand for Electric Vehicles (EV’s), the EV battery market is setting record-breaking deals more than ever. This increased demand for battery metals is also driving prices to an all-time high, signaling firms like Surge are the engine driving the market’s growth. Observant investors may notice the staggering activity in this market and conclude that Surge Battery Metals is more than ideally positioned for short-term success and long-term growth. This anticipated growth solidifies Surge as an investment opportunity that is getting too big to pass up.

NILIF's recent upturn in price signals that it continues to operate a cut above its competition. Surge’s valuation demonstrates that it can decouple from weaker market averages, even achieving a two-month intraday high more than 47% higher from current levels in late January. With demand for its products skyrocketing and prices for many metals at an all-time-high, Surge’s valuation may very well hit $0.22 much faster than expected, translating the company’s capitalization on soaring demand for EV battery technology into sustainable growth with tremendous promise for investors.

Expanding the Scope of Exploration

Surge's work in 2021 positions them for a significant breakout in 2022. NILIF has worked to expand and enhance an already impressive list of operating assets, completing a capital raise that put them in one of the best cash positions in their history. Furthermore, Surge has taken steps to reduce the risks inherent in the battery metals sector by committing to projects in some of the world's most mining-friendly jurisdictions. In addition, Surge has entered several deals that show significant promise to accelerate its growth trajectory.

One such deal is an option agreement with Lithium Corporation (OTCQB: LTUM) that has the potential to turn this micro-cap battery metals exploration company into an industrial superpower that can compete on a scale with long-standing mining operations. This deal also promises significant value in generating immediate investment exposure to the burgeoning EV battery metals sector, which is currently paving its way as one of the largest emerging markets in terms of revenue generation.

Furthermore, the agreement gives significant claim interest in the 5,560-acre prospect area. Surge has agreed upon excellent terms that give it the opportunity to maximize its interests and keep its balance sheet healthy. Instead of a mass cash outlay, the deal structure allows Surge to make staged cash and share payments and incur a defined $1,000,000 in exploration expenditures to earn an undivided 80% working interest in the San Emidio Lithium-in-Brine property. This allows Surge to retain the bulk of its $4.2 million in excess working capital reported at the end of last quarter. That’s only one of several extremely promising deals.

Last month, Surge also announced it had staked a 1,640-acre property in the Teels Marsh Playa in Mineral County, Nevada. This agreement has the potential to transform Surge’s business model. Located in an active region for lithium exploration and production about 84 km northeast of Albemarle's Silver Peak brine mining operation, this deal provides numerous revenue-generating opportunities. This is a location where the success of past operations predicts success in future endeavors.

With enough cash on hand to accelerate an already ambitious exploration model, Surge is expanding its operations into two countries. To de-risk its operations, Surge has chosen its sites strategically to fall under mining-friendly jurisdictions that will not hinder its activities. Furthermore, Surge has entered several prudent deals in recent months to diversify its interests and retain revenue-generating opportunities throughout its operations.

Paving the Way to a Trillion-Dollar Industry

Surge’s target market is growing larger by the day, with demand from the booming Electric Vehicle industry creating revenue-generating opportunities at unprecedented rates. In fact, while EV’s have already taken hold of a substantial market, the industry is projected to grow to near a trillion dollars by the end of the decade. It is worth noting that it takes a robust supply side to meet the demands that come with this business, and Surge is prepared to meet these exploding demands.

Historic levels of interest in EV’s lends itself directly to Surge’s niche in the EV technology market. As EV technology is made available to a larger consumer base, Surge’s solid infrastructure allows them to grow alongside the rest of the industry, leading it to tremendous success that could yield unprecedented returns to investors. This infrastructure could enable Surge to become one of the foremost suppliers to the EV and green metals markets in the future. However, Surge’s value does not only come in achieving this long-term growth, but also through the promising deals it is making at present.

Savvy investors appear to be taking note of Surge’s valuation and recognizing that the opportunity it represents to its stakeholders may far exceed its current value. With plenty of expansion happening now, Surge intends to give plenty of reason to resolve this valuation disconnect.

Capitalizing on Metal-Rich Assets

In addition to expanding its activities with LTUM and expanding into Teels Marsh Playa, Surge also has investments in three mining locations with high projected yields of metals used in battery production. Surge’s recent spike in valuation demonstrates that investors are taking notice of its potential and getting in on the ground floor. However, though the price has risen considerably, Surge would still be considered by many as undervalued at present. NILIF represents an entity that has value greater than the sum of its parts: the projected growth of the markets in which it operates combined with the value of its assets makes this clear.

One of Surge’s promising projects lies within the borders of British Columbia. This project includes two areas, both rich in copper, nickel, and other valuable metals integral to battery production. Caledonia, located 7 miles away from BHP’s Island Copper Mine, sits within a 31-mile-long copper belt. The 4,302-acre allotment boasts a high recovery rate of both copper and silver. The second area, located in Central British Columbia, sits adjacent to known deposits of nickel, indicating a high likelihood of similar deposits in the area. Surveys of this area have additionally indicated hard nickel, cobalt, chromium, and awaruite concentrations, all of which represent tremendous opportunities for revenue for Surge.

Surge is also partnered with Lithium America, America’s only current lithium producer, to develop its Northern Nevada Lithium Project. Lithium is one of the most important metals for battery production, and its demand is spiking not only due to the advancement of Electric Vehicles, but also as a prerequisite for most battery-powered electronics. As such, Surge plans to combine innovative advances in mining efficiency with extensive marketing experience in the battery metals industry to capitalize on the wealth of resources in Northern Nevada.

Riding Skyrocketing Demand for EV Metals

By all accounts, the record high demand for battery technology is not a short-lived event. On the contrary, due to the ongoing revolution in battery-powered-tech, demand for resources such as lithium is projected to soar for the foreseeable future. Unlike the turbulent asset prices of the rare earth metals market, the demand for battery metals such as lithium is expected be a more stable and robust contributor to mass-market applications.

Naturally, a variety of applications and pricing visibility is important for mineral miners like Surge. Fortunately, projections of the market show that these measures are headed in the right direction to benefit NILIF. Best of all, Surge recently confirmed that it is fully funded to complete its planned 2022 explorations and will have plenty of reserves to work with. This, combined with Surge’s extensive intrinsic assets, provides an additional reason for NILIF bulls to stake a claim at current prices.

Though Surge boasts an impressive array of assets and a strategic business model, it is worth noting that these traits alone do not guarantee long-term growth without considering sustainability. Surge intends to set itself apart from the competition by employing the most efficient and responsible mining methods currently known. Surge's approach to exploration and mining is different form riskier mining operations, mitigating risk by utilizing cutting-edge prospecting, geological mapping, and rock and soil sampling to determine which properties provide the most efficient mineral recovery opportunity. Furthermore, Surge has already established a robust network of sales channels, meaning there are likely to be fewer costs associated with supply chain management.

Another piece of news pointing toward a promising future for Surge comes from projections of battery metal markets. A significant portion of Surge’s bottom line is comprised of copper, nickel, and lithium. As a matter of fact, the market for these metals is expected to grow by a factor of 15 by the end of the decade. Furthermore, Surge enjoys the status of an ESG (Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance)-mandated firm. This is essential to Surge’s future endeavors as ESG-mandated firms are expected to grow at up to 3 times the rate of other firms.

Moreover, as environmental sustainability becomes a more significant part of project decision-making, Surge is keeping up with responsible mining, increasing its competitiveness when compared to traditional mining firms. In fact, Surge’s ESG designation better equips it to take advantage of competitive and quick-moving markets by enhancing its ability to meet demands ahead of more senior mining companies. With these considerations in mind, Surge is a micro-cap company with huge promise.

A Timely Opportunity to Invest

Surge presents such great value to investors because the value of its assets alone more than justifies its current valuation. Furthermore, the company shows signs of a strong trajectory of growth leading to a breakout year in 2022. Expectations are high due to Surge’s ample cash on hand, as well as the potential value of its new assets and deals. Especially with demand for EV battery metals skyrocketing, Surge shows tremendous promise for revenue-generation and long-term growth.

With a solid stake in a soaring market, exploration projects in the world’s most mining-friendly jurisdictions, and a robust network of connections in the industry, Surge presents an investment too promising to pass up. The recent spike in its valuation demonstrates that investors are taking notice of this opportunity, and all signs point to continued growth in coming months. It is indeed quite possible that Surge’s undervaluation will correct sooner rather than later as more investors realize the potential it represents to an exploding industry.
