Trident plans to rapidly establish itself as a diversified mining royalty and streaming company, providing investors with exposure to base and precious metals, bulk materials (excluding thermal coal) and battery metals.


Trident plans to rapidly establish itself as a diversified mining royalty company, providing investors with exposure to a mix of base and precious metals, bulk materials (excluding coal) and battery metals.


Trident believes that the acquisition and aggregation of individual royalties and streams has the potential to deliver strong returns for shareholders as assets are acquired on terms reflective of single asset risk compared with the lower risk profile of a diversified, larger scale portfolio, including diversity as to geography (lowering geopolitical risks) and commodity exposure.

Once scale has been achieved, the Company expects strong cash generation to support an attractive dividend policy, providing investors with a desirable mix of inflation protection (through exposure to commodities), capital growth and income, with returns enhanced through conservative levels of leverage.

Trident has assembled a strong team with the requisite experience and technical and financial acumen to successfully execute on the proposed strategy.
