FEATURE: AIM Exploration (AEXE: OTC) Exploring Anthracite Coal, The Highest Quality Metallurgical Coal Available $AEXE.us

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 10:35 AM on Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

  • Coal is the world’s largest source of energy for the production of electricity.
  • 1 billion tons of coal used in global industrial steel production each year.
  • There are zero alternatives to coal in the industrial steel-making process.

Anthracite Coal

What Is It and Why This Is So Important?

Anthracite is officially classified as coal however it is not just another fuel, anthracite should not be confused with just ordinary bituminous coal.

Anthracite is the highest quality metallurgical coal available, clean burning, hard coal with the highest carbon content of any coal, very energy efficient and even burns smoke free.

This premium coal represents only 1% of world coal reserves.

The Cleanest Burning Solid Fossil Fuel

Anthracite is an almost pure form of carbon. It has a very high heat value, and very low levels of sulphur and other impurities. This makes it not only the most sought after home heating fuel but also a much sought after, high quality component for a number of industries.

The anthracite coal extracted from the AIM coal concessions in Peru have been tested by the world-wide highly regarded SGS labs and the findings indicate a very high fixed carbon, very low ash and sulpher content with a high calorific value.

AIM would be pleased to provide the analysis upon request.

Why Does the World Need Anthracite Coal?

As a result of its attributes, anthracite coal trades at prices substantially higher than thermal coal and has a lower environmental impact. High quality anthracite is increasingly sought for by the steel industry, always under pressure to reduce costs and improve margins.

Metallurgical coal together with iron ore is the principal raw materials used to make steel. As such, it supports an improved quality of life for all of us through its use in the construction of homes and hospitals, and in the production of everything from mass transportation vehicles to wind turbines.

Due to its high carbon content and low volatiles, anthracite is more reactive and efficient with respect to energy released than the lower–ranked coals and consequently has a lower environmental impact due to the lower greenhouse gas emissions.

The industry most commonly associated with anthracite is the steel industry.

Within the steelmaking industry, anthracite is used in three processes

  1. Pulverized coal injection
  2. Basic Oxygen Steel
  3. Electric Arc Furnaces

Present Activities

  • Anthracite Samples from AIM's PropertyAssets encompass 1,000 hectares of mining concession property consisting of three sites of 600, 200 and 200 hectares respectively.
  • Percana SA initially acquired these properties based on indications of the presence of high grade anthracite coal. Illegal artisan miners are currently operating multiple one-entry mines on the property, which further indicates the presence and mine-ability of these deposits.
  • To verify the geology and quality of the coal, Percana SA commissioned local geologists to compile a technical report on the 1,000 hectares. Although the report yielded optimistic estimates of resources, reserves and economics, it does not meet public reporting standards.

LOCATION

  • located in Huaranchal, which is one of ten districts in the province of Otuzco.
  • Two-hour drive from Trujillo (the second largest city in Peru), and an equal distance to the city of Otuzco.
  • Also strategically located 200km from Salaverry, which features a port that can service ships with capacities of up to 35,000 tons. The Port of Salaverry provides direct access to the Pacific Ocean.

INFRASTRUCTURE


Water

A river adjacent to the property provides access to water for mining operations. However, most of the coal on the property may be extracted with minimal or no coal washing.

Power
Power lines cut through the property, although Aim is yet to ascertain the capacity of these lines. The company expects to use diesel powered equipment for most of its mining activities.

Roads
The first half of the road from the property to Otuzco is along steep mountainsides and can support 25-ton trucks. The next half of the road to Otuzco is better maintained and can also support 25-ton trucks. The road from Otuzco to the Port of Salaverry is well constructed, paved, and has bridges that can support up to 50-ton loads. This will facilitate smooth hauling of coal to the port.

Besides accessibility to water, transportation and electricity, there are also small villages on the property with ample accommodations and restaurants to service exploration crews and other travelers.

Market Potential

  • Highly desirable resource with a variety of uses. I
  • Primarily used in the manufacturing of steel, the production of cement, and the generation of electricity.
  • 70% of the steel produced globally relies on coal (World Coal Association, 2013); 200kg of coal is required to produce one ton of cement (Van Oss, 2012); and 41% of global electricity production relies on coal (Clemente, 2012).
  • Highest ranking coal because it is older and harder, contains more carbon, has lower moisture content, and burns hotter than any other type of coal. Comprising only 1% of global reserves, anthracite is also the cleanest burning fossil fuel on the planet (Cornerstone, 2013).

Once the joint venture with Prina Energy Aim intends to sell its output to international customers through the joint venture corporation concentrating the marketing efforts in India.

  • Unavailability of Anthracite Coal in India creates a huge potential for coal as a fuel for Indian Steel industry, which is growing on progressive and steady pace.
  • Huge scope for growth is offered by India’s comparatively low per capita steel consumption and the expected rise in consumption due to increased infrastructure construction and the thriving automobile and railways sectors.

Competitive Advantage

Aim has a variety of advantages. The company has a team of technical experts on ground in Peru, and has also recruited advisors and directors who bring complementary skills to the venture. In terms of infrastructure, power lines run through Aim’s property, while a river runs adjacent to the site. The road network from the site to Otuzco can support 25-ton trucks. From Otuzco to Salaverry, the road is paved and well maintained, and can support up to 50-ton trucks. There are also accommodation facilities close to the property that can cater to Aim employees and contractors. Other advantages include competitive labour wages in Peru, and competitive storage and stevedoring costs at the port together with the ability to extract deposits with minimal or no coal washing.

THE NEW TIMMINS GOLD BOOM? $EXS.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 12:18 PM on Tuesday, April 11th, 2017

  • GOLDCORP IS SPENDING BILLIONS
  • NEW MILL AT 50,000 TONNES PER DAY IN AS LITTLE AS 2-3 YEARS
  • SOURCES REPORT GOLDCORP QUIETLY ACQUIRING CLAIMS IN THE REGION

Restaurants are busy, with lineups out the door.  Hotels are fully booked, and rental properties are scarce. We would expect that in New York City or Hong Kong, but this is Timmins,a small city 435 miles north of Toronto, with an official population of 41,788.WHY is this small mining town buzzing with activity? Are these tourists? Scanning the restaurant patrons and hotel guests, I’m not seeing travel brochures, binoculars, or fishing rods.

After reading the latest couple of postings on Agoracom’s  Explor Resources Discussion Forum, I was intrigued by some of the commentary offered by one of our regular contributors. Apparently, the influx of new faces is coming from a growing number of engineering firms & contractors, that are flooding into Timmins in response to the proposed construction of a huge, new mill by Goldcorp. That has incredible potential ramifications for junior resource companies in the area, most notably, in our opinion, for Explor Resources, (EXS-TSX.V; EXSFF-OTCQB; E1H1-FRFT/BE), one of our featured Junior Gold & Base Metals exploration companies.

GOLDCORP IS SPENDING BILLIONS

Sources tell us that Goldcorp has spent over $50 Million to date on a study to expand their existing Dome Open Pit and build a 50,000 tonne per day Gold mill. I’m also hearing they intend to spend some $2Billion to develop and produce their Gold assets in Timmins. That’s huge news.However, never willing to buy into thegrand,& often exaggerated stories from miners and drillers, we decided to do our own research and found significant corroborating evidence backing up the rumours.

Specifically, Goldcorp Porcupine Gold Mines Mine Manager, Marc Lauzier, made the following statement in December, 2016, in an article that exposed the possible re-opening of the Dome Open Pit mine in Timmins Porcupine:

What weve basically done is stitched together all the (geologic) models from the underground and the surface and re-ran a new pit shell.  What that determined, when we ran a new pit shell, was that we had the potential for a deeper open pit (Gold mine) than the initial open pit that was there.

NEW MILL AT 50,000 TONNES PER DAY IN AS LITTLE AS 2-3 YEARS

Further, Goldcorp President, David Garofalo, made an even bolder statement during the company’s Q3 presentation when he stated:

“I view it as the cornerstone of (Timmins) Porcupine moving forward, he explained. “We’re envisioning a new mill, much higher throughput, probably three or four times the throughput we have now at our existing mill, which is about 11 or 12 thousand tonnes a day.

Another reliable source told us that “sterilization drilling” is currently taking place to ensure no economic Gold ore is under the proposed new structure.  “It’s not cheap. A few million dollars easy”. A structure of this size would have an enormous foot print and you don’t want it sitting on top of the very Gold it’s supposed to process.

Moreover, one of our sources claims,“Goldcorp have all the permits in place, with the exception of the construction permit, which is the easiest one to get. As such, the new mill could be up and running within 2-3 years if they started today.

What will happen to the old mill Garofalo mentioned above? Sources tell us the old mill IS sitting on top of a Gold ore body, “which means it has to go.  If it has to go, it has to be replaced before it goes.  This statement was supported by an article that stated:

“With the opportunity to extend the Dome Open Pit (Gold mine), new infrastructure would be required as the current mill, processing plant and administration building sit on top of what is envisioned to be the extended open pit.

Summing up, the rumours of a $2Billion, 50,000 ton a day mill development plan appear to have a basis in fact, bearing in mind the Garofalo & Lauzier comments, and all the new faces in Timmins.Goldcorp’s CEO Garofalo isn’t just “envisioning” a new mill, it appears to be underway.

SOURCES REPORT GOLDCORP QUIETLY ACQUIRING CLAIMS IN THE REGION

Its common knowledge that Goldcorp’s Regional Gold mining operations are insufficient to support a 50,000 ton a day mill. So where is the mill feed going to come from? “Therefore, we will have to acquire more projects. Apparently,Goldcorp has been quietly picking up privately held Gold claims in the region. Further, our sources are telling us Goldcorp has been acquiring ground around the open pit, just to provide them with additional breathing room needed to accommodate the development.

WHICH SMALL CAP COMPANY STANDS TO BENEFIT THE MOST?

With all of this Goldcorp action taking place in Timmins, there are a number of small Gold exploration companies that could stand to benefit. Having researched a number of these, the one Ifeel will benefit the most is Explor Resources. (TSX VENTURE:EXS) (OTCQX:EXSFF) (FRANKFURT:E1H1) (BERLIN:E1H1)

Yes, they are a sponsor of AGORACOM, so assume we are horribly conflicted.  Here are the facts for you to consider:

  • Explor’s flagship project is the Timmins Porcupine West (TPW) Gold deposit,
  • It is located less than 7miles SE of the new Goldcorp mill.
  • The established strike length of Explor’s Gold deposit to date is 2,000meters (1.25miles), ‘open’ at both ends, and ‘open’ at depth.
  • The ‘Discovery Hole’ 10-30 assayed9.22gr per tonne over 11.0 meters.
  • The property hosts the largest ‘porphyry’ ever found in the Timmins Mining Camp, or the entire legendary Abitibi Greenstone Belt, home of The Dome, McIntyre, & Hollinger Mines, to name just a few.
  • According to Chris Dupont, President & CEO of Explor, only about 30% of the porphyry has actually been explored, so it has the potential to be one of the largest Gold deposits ever found in Canada.
  • Estimates suggest Explor’s TPW porphyry is easily 7-10 times larger than Goldcorp’s own Hollinger pit, which hosted and produced 19,327,691ounces of Gold by the time it shut down.In a recent article on MetalsNews.com Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, a well-knownMining expert,stated“The Timmins Porcupine West (TPW) GOLD deposit model your team created, appears to suggest a potential of 25-30 Million ounces of GOLD in the ground”.

Given Goldcorp’s massive undertaking in Timmins, it stands to reason the TPW Gold Resource has become a very valuable target. Clearly,Goldcorp does not have enough ore to feed a 50,000 ton a day mill, and, logically, they will have to try to consolidate players or projects in the area, including Explor Resources to fulfill their needs.To this end, one of our sources stated,“You don’t build it for just 5 million ounces – but if you add everybody else’sexisting resource, you can easily get to 20 million ounces and more”.

                                                            US$250MILLION MORE REASONS

Explor has 250 Million more reasons to be attractive to Goldcorp.

The TPW Net Smelter Return Royalty (NSR) of 3%, originally negotiated in a deal with Dome Mines …. but now owned by Goldcorp! Under the Royalty Agreement, Explor Resources has the right to buy back 1% of the 3% for just $1million,leaving a lot of money on the table for Goldcorp. For example, if the TPW ended up containing 20 million ounces, the 1% royalty could actually be worth $US250million. (i.e. 20Million ounces x 1% = 200,000 @ US$1,250ounce).

Clearly, Goldcorp.has 250 Million reasons to take a serious look at Explor’ TPW.

With Goldcorp clearly on the move in Timmins and Explor Resources holding both a resource and an NSR of great potential value to Goldcorp, value that is far beyond the current market capitalization of Explor, you have all the reasons necessary to take a serious look at Explor Resources as well.

Canadian based funds holds significant positionsin Explor Resources and we are also told major European investment fundsalso holds meaningful positions.
