Recent Past update
Because there has been so much going on with Torchlight Energy Resources recently, the stock has been on a roller coaster ride for quite some time.
Torchlight Energy Resources and Metamaterial, a Canadian company, agreed to join in late 2020. This isn’t just a commercial merger however it’s a means for Metamaterial to acquire a listing in the United States. In reality, Metamaterial intends to quit the exploration and production industry entirely following the merger. This complicated transaction has a lot of moving elements. Due to this, progress has also been slower than planned, resulting in frequent price spikes and falls due to news in the first half of 2021. However, it appears like it will be completed shortly.
