Nevada Canyon Forms Carbon Streaming Subsidiary
Reno, Nevada. February 24, 2022, Nevada Canyon Gold Corp. (OTC Markets: NGLD) (The “Company” or “Nevada Canyon”) is pleased to announce it has formed a wholly owned subsidiary, Canyon Carbon, LLC (“Canyon Carbon”), and in conjunction is engaging Warms Springs Consulting, LLC (WSC) a US-based Certified B Corp. WSC will assist Canyon Carbon with the analysis and evaluation of various carbon credit royalties, and potential carbon streaming investments in carbon offset projects in the Western US, with an emphasis on Nevada.
WSC will initially develop a first phase rangeland carbon credit royalties streaming opportunity analysis providing a high-level evaluation of the technical feasibility and market potential for developing rangeland carbon credit projects in arid mountain-west ecosystems. If feasible, WSC will develop a business plan that would utilize existing rangeland carbon protocols for soil sequestration carbon credit projects. This initial analysis will evaluate the market demand and the potential revenue for rangeland soil carbon sequestration for the mountain-west arid grassland ecosystems, particularly looking at sage grouse habitat where grazing occurs (Idaho, Oregon, Nevada, Utah, etc.). The analysis will also evaluate the potential to couple carbon credits with sage grouse ecosystem credits, and, in this context, look at the royalties streaming business model and the marketability of carbon credits to the mining sector in North America.
WSC team of consultants brings the expertise to support Canyon Carbon in evaluating carbon streaming investment opportunities as well as achieving the Company’s Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) goals. While implementing the best sustainability practices for the mining sector with access to the latest technologies in carbon capture, clean energy (generation, smart distribution and storage), and ecosystem credits.
By utilizing Nevada Canyon’s management team’s extensive governmental, regulatory, and mining industry contacts within Nevada, Canyon Carbon intends to be an emerging player in carbon offset projects with the potential of both compliance and voluntary markets within the state of Nevada, the Western US and throughout North America.
“We see a tremendous opportunity within the Nevada mining industry for carbon credit offset project investments and providing ESG solutions to mining companies,” said Nevada Canyon President and CEO, Jeffrey Cocks, “Carbon credits are already bigger than most commodity markets and will continue to grow. With new government legislations and market pressures for carbon neutrality, this will be a must have for every company. Future demand is already projected to far exceed supply.”
