The 3 Reasons Why Arctic Star Is A World Class, Small Cap Diamond Explorer

Arctic Star Exploration (ADD:TSXV / ASDZF:OTCQB / 82A1.F:FRA) is in the diamond finding business.

The Company owns 100% of its flagship Timantti Diamond Project in Finland, where Arctic Star has discovered three diamondiferous kimberlites that may represent the first finds in a large kimberlite field. If you don’t know what a kimberlite is, keep drilling down and see below because this is truly exciting.

The project is located on the same geological belt as the Grib Diamond Mine in Russia, just 450 kms away. The Grib mine is one of the largest diamond mines in the world and was discovered by a team led by Arctic Star Director Roy Spencer.  Keep drilling down to see more about him.

For those investors who have a little more experience and find themselves asking Why Finland? You should know that Finland was ranked as the World’s #2 mining jurisdiction in the world by the Fraser Institute 2020. In addition to its flagship project in Finland, the Company also controls diamond exploration properties in Nunavut (Stein) and the Northwest Territories of Canada (Diagras and Redemption).

But the real secret of Arctic Star is that it has tremendous potential to revolutionize the way in which Diamonds are discovered – and become a pioneer in the exploration industry – by finding diamonds in a place where no previous explorer has thought to do so. More than just a wild theory, Arctic Star has the team to back it up.

Here are the 3 things you need to know

1. World Class Diamond Finders

Arctic Star exploration has a highly experienced diamond exploration team previously responsible for numerous world class diamond mine discoveries.  The team is led by Buddy Doyle who originally discovered Diavik Mine, Canada’s largest diamond mine in terms of carat production. Diavik’s exceptional grades make it one of the most valuable diamond mines in the world.  Diavik is located in the Northwest Territories of Canada, where Arctic Star has 2 of their diamond properties.

Few geologists have seen 2 projects from discovery through to decision to mine. Mr. Doyle is recognized by his peers in the exploration industry as an authority on diamond exploration and kimberlite geology, and has authored/co-authored numerous papers on these subjects. He was awarded the 2007 Hugo Dummitt Award for excellence in Diamond exploration.

Roy Spencer – If that wasn’t enough, the geologist who discovered the multi-billion-dollar Grib Diamond Mine in Russia (see above). which is just 450 KMs away from Arctic Star’s project in Finland, has now joined Arctic’s Board of Directors!  Clearly, the Arctic Star team has the credibility necessary to put forth a new thesis on how to find diamonds. 

 2. Brand New Exploration Model To Find Diamonds 

In order to find diamonds, you need to first find Kimberlites. What are Kimberlites? Essentially, they are the rocks which contain diamonds. These kimberlite rocks are found underground in vertical structures known as kimberlite pipes. To illustrate in simple terms, see this basic image of a kimberlite pipe with kimberlite rocks inside of it.  

Kimberlite pipes are the biggest source of diamonds today. When exploration companies go looking for kimberlites, the industry standard for finding them is to look for magnetic signatures. This is done by taking a magnetic survey from the air and/or ground. with a device called a magnetometer.  Now, most of you won’t understand what you are looking at – but here is an example of one of the company’s magnetic surveys on its Canadian Diagras property.

The most important thing to understand is that the industry looks for magnetic signatures ….. but Buddy Doyle and the accomplished Arctic Star team have developed a NON MAGNETIC THESIS.  They believe they will find economic diamonds by locating Kimberlite that do not have a magnetic signature where previous explores sought not to look. Arctic in a sense is exploring for diamonds the opposite way the industry traditionally does. Arctic acquired property big mining company’s dropped, because they looked at them one way. Arctic is looking differently and success is occurring quickly for this small, yet accomplished exploration outfit. There are already multiple drill ready targets in 2 countries using this new way of looking for diamonds.

Arctic offers multiple opportunities in 2 countries to turn the Diamond Industry on notice with a discovery.

3. Arctic Star Has Two Diamond Projects Ready To Verify Its Non-Magnetic Theory

Arctic has 2 diamond projects on which to verify its theory: Diagras in Northwest Territories of Canada and Timantti in Finland, where early exploration searching for Non-Magnetic signatures has already yielded multiple new diamond target

A.  Diagras is next to Diavik (Canada’s largest diamond mine) and is drill ready to prove Buddy’s theory. Arctic has plans to drill in 2020

B. Timantti in Finland has 3 separate target areas and 6 targets altogether identified through non-magnetic signatures as a means to find diamonds and further excel Buddy’s theory, it is the company’s goal to drill test in 2020

If Buddy Doyle and the Arctic Star team are correct it will create a new discovery process for understanding how diamonds are brought to surface in areas previous explorers cared not to look. Arctic Star has the potential to create multiple discoveries and copycat companies trying to duplicate their success.

However, there is only one Buddy Doyle and Roy Spencer, which is why Arctic Star is the one Diamond Exploration Company every investor should be aware of.

Client Feature: The 4 Reasons Goldman Sachs Believes Candente Copper $DNT.ca is a World Class Company $CN.ca $FCX.ca $TECK.ca $FSUGY $PER.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 12:56 PM on Friday, November 13th, 2020

The 4 Reasons Goldman Sachs Believes Candente Copper is a World Class Company

Candente Copper (TSX: DNT, BVL: DNT) owns 100% of a copper deposit in Peru and has big plans to become a miner.

Candente owns a large, economic, copper ore body in Peru waiting to be mined. Cañariaco Norte is a 100% owned feasibility-stage porphyry copper deposit.

Simply put, it is a mountainous rock body that holds 7.5 billion pounds of copper and has had multiple scientific studies propelling it along the way toward production. Strengthened by Goldman Sachs belief it is one of the top 80 copper deposits yet to be exploited and strategically guided by Australian Iron Ore giant Fortescue’s 19% inside ownership, Candente has the lowest quartile production costs that make it an intriguing project today and a must have for tomorrow.

 Reasons Why Candente Copper is A Top Small Cap Copper Company

1. Goldman Sachs has Canariacao Norte listed as one of the top 80 projects waiting to be developed worldwide and is top 42 in South America. Mining projects take a long time to be developed due to the strict standards required to prove metal content in the ground, which Candente has proven it has tremendous amounts of.

A single, contiguous, open-pit mineable deposit of 7.5B pounds Measured and Indicated and can be mined for 22 years once in production speaks to the stability of the project 

2. Supported Strategically by Fortesque’s 19.9% Ownership 

Fortesque is recognized as a global leader in the mining industry. Fortesque holds 19% Candente and became involved to advance Canariaco further into development. Fortesque committed 1$Million in January 2020 with an eye toward production and is considered a strategic investor, which means they have a long-term timeline for joint exploitation of the asset.

Fortescue is one of the largest global iron ore producers, recognized for its culture, innovation and industry-leading development of world class infrastructure and mining assets in Western Australia. This is truly a partnership which seeks to equally progress Canariaco into development and Candente into production status. The accepted odds for a discovery to find its way into production is about 1 in 1000, and speaks to the sheer difficulty of the exercise.

Candente is close to the finish line and Fortesque is there for the final push.

3. Canariaco is in the lowest quartile of production costs

Once in production Canariaco is in the lowest quartile of production costs for projects waiting to be developed Operating costs of US$0.988 per pound of copper

 Canariaco has 7.5Billion pounds of copper measured and indicated capable of generating annual production of 262,000,000lbs of copper, 39,000 oz gold & 911,000 oz silver over initial mine life of 22 yrs(@ 95,000 tpd). A long stable mine life is what attracts quality investors like Fortesque.

Canariaco is a stable, long term investment once it is producing because its output is consistent every year. The risk has been removed from the project.

4. Canariaco is the 1st of 3 projects all in the same area waiting to be discovered.

Candente has the opportunity to make further discoveries through Canariaco South and Quebrada Verde, both within a 5km trend that shares infrastructure. Management believes Canariaco Sur is a mineable deposit and will add tremendous support to shareholders in the future. Quebrada Verde demonstrates the same minerology and potential as both Norte and Sur which and requires future exploitation

Each of these projects will benefit greatly from Canariaco’s development as it will make development even cheaper than Canariaco Norte due to the infrastructure that will be in place, possible pushing Canariaco’s future overall costs even lower.
