The following is a round-up of trading updates by London-listed companies, issued on Wednesday, and not separately reported by Alliance News:

----------

Trident Royalties PLC - mining royalty company - Enters binding royalty purchase agreement with New World Resources Ltd to buy net smelter return royalty on all metal production from New World’s Antler copper project in Arizona, US for A$11 million, or £5.8 million. Chief Executive Officer Adam Davidson says: ‘At the end of last year, we indicated that the market for royalties was becoming more active as projects looked for funding outside of traditional equity and debt markets. That has proven to be the case, with Antler marking our fifth transaction this year. This is a highly attractive royalty. The commodity mix complements our existing portfolio, with future-facing base metals to sit alongside our lithium, precious metals, and existing base metals’ exposure. The location and management of the asset are both excellent, and we expect the royalty to deliver significant value for Trident shareholders.’

CleanTech Lithium PLC - Chile-focused lithium exploration and development company - Says pre-feasibility study at its Laguna Verde project is progressing. Says it will incorporate results from test work over six months using a lab scale multivalve direct lithium extraction system. Says DLE pilot plant is designed to produce up to one tonne per month of lithium carbonate equivalent in concentrated lithium eluate, which will be processed to battery grade lithium carbonate at an existing third party facility. Says samples of the product will be made available to potential strategic partners and offtakers, such as major auto and battery manufacturers, for testing and product qualification.

Chief Executive Officer Aldo Boitano says: ‘The recent visit to China has shown me the great opportunity DLE offers to produce lithium with an ESG led approach. It is clear in my mind that DLE is the way forward for lithium production if we are to meet EV production targets. The companies we visited in China are forging ahead with lithium extraction from brine with no evaporation ponds, and this has provided further certainty in our projects as we progress with the PFS for Laguna Verde. This important phase of CTL’s growth will help with the discussions we are planning to have with strategic partners in 2024. The next six months is going to be a busy period for CTL, with the combination of the PFS and the analysis of results from the DLE Pilot Plant making this an exciting period in the company’s journey.’
