Starting with the rigorous expressions, derived previously for the generalized transport coefficients of a multicomponent fluid, we obtained several exact relations for partial conductivities of ionic chargeasymmetric mixtures. For a simpler case of a chargesymmetric binary mixture such kind of relations was discovered experimentally by Sundheim more than 50 years ago and is known as the "universal golden rule". Some more complicate models, describing in particular the cases of ternary and multicomponent mixtures, are considered. The general relation for partial ionic conductivities is derived for a multicomponent ionic fluid. It is shown that such relations can be considered in fact as an example of a more general class of rigorous expressions valid for (k,ω)dependent quantities.
