|St. John’s – Altius Minerals Corporation (“Altius”) reports that it will release financial results for its first quarter ended July 31, 2017 on Thursday, September 14, after the close of market.|
Altius expects to report attributable royalty revenue1 of approximately $14.8 million for the first quarter ended July 31, 2017. This represents a new quarterly royalty record that is 10.4% higher than the immediately prior fiscal quarter and is 78% higher than the comparable quarter of the prior fiscal year.
The increases are largely due to improving base metal, metallurgical coal and iron ore prices and slightly improved potash production volumes and prices.
