AGORACOM Welcomes Nevada Energy Metals (BFF: TSX-V) With Strong Green Energy Initiatives

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:17 AM on Wednesday, March 16th, 2016

TSX-V: BFF, OTC Pink: SSMLF

Why Lithium?

  • Major companies such as Sony and Panasonic got behind lithium as an anchor material in a possible successor to the lead-acid battery paradigm.
  • Although it took decades, lithium-based batteries are now the industry standard.
  • Lithium has limited supply and increasing demand.
  • Lithium seems untouched by economic downturns.
  • Lithium prices increased by about 20% in 2014 and by a larger percentage in 2015 when gas, coal and natural gas were down 50%
  • Climate change has lead to the frenzied search for green energy solution
  • Because of its high reactivity, lithium does not occur as a pure element in nature but is contained within minerals in a range of hard rock types or in brine solutions (elements contained in salty water) in salt lakes, “salars.” Lithium’s primary driver for growth is:

Batteries and grid-scale energy storage:

  • Most important use of lithium is in rechargeable lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles, grid-scale energy storage, phones, laptops, cameras, gaming consoles and hundreds of other electronic devices.
  • Lithium-ion batteries are increasingly used for bikes, power tools, forklifts, cranes and other industrial equipment. In essence, lithium powers modern technology.

Benchmark Mineral Intelligence estimates that the

“EV market will grow five-fold between 2015 and 2020 while the market for stationary storage will increase 8-fold.”

We have already seen Tesla increase the land holding of their $5 billion under-construction lithium-ion battery factory and Faraday Future strike a deal to build a $1 billion electric car plant.

Projects

  • Acquired, by staking, 100 placer claims covering 2000 acres (809 hectares) at Teels Marsh, Nevada.
  • Property, called Teels Marsh West is highly prospective for Lithium brines and is located approximately 48 miles northwest of Clayton Valley and the Rockwood Lithium Mine, North America’s only producing brine based Lithium mine supporting lithium production since 1967.
  • Access to Teels Marsh is via dirt road, west of Highway 95 and northwest of Highway 360.

Teels Marsh West is a highly prospective Lithium exploration project, 100% owned without any royalties, located on the western part of a large evaporation pond, or playa (also known as a salar). Structural analysis reveals that Teels Marsh is bounded by faults and is tectonically active. Tectonic activities supply additional local permeability that could be provided by the faults that bound the graben and sub-basins.

  • Located 12 km (7.5 miles) northeast of Albemarle Corporation’s (formerly Rockwood Lithium),Silver Peaksolar evaporation ponds. Silver Peak is the only producing brine-based lithium facility in North America.
  • 60-40 earn-in joint venture with Dajin Resources Corp.
  • In addition to its proximity to Silver Peak, the property is 20 km (12.5 miles) east-northeast of Pure Energy Minerals’ Clayton Valley exploration project.
  • Preliminary data from ongoing exploration activities on the property, suggest that Alkali Lake could be situated on one of the most prospective areas in the entire basin.
  • Lithium assay results from sediment sampling carried out on the Alkali Lake property confirmed the presence of near-surface lithium at grades ranging from 73 ppm to 382 ppm.

  • Early stage exploration property, located in the northern foothills of the Alaska Range, which contains VMS (volcanogenic massive sulfide) mineralization.
  • Property is located in the east portion of the Bonnifield Mining District, central Alaska, approximately 60 mi (96 km) south of Fairbanks, Alaska (Figure 1).
  • Property consists of 36 quarter-section State of Alaska mining claims (Galleon 1-36; Appendix 1) held by Anglo Alaska Gold Corporation (AAGC). Rock Star Resources Inc (RSRI) holds the rights to a 100% earn-in interest under an agreement with AAGC to pay for exploration and make required payments.
  • Access to the Property currently is only by helicopter, or by trail from a nearby airstrip, however, strong potential exists for future development of a road connecting the Property with an existing mine road system to the west.
  • The claims are subject to a 3% Net Production Royalty to the State of Alaska beginning 3.5 years after mine start-up. All claims comprising the Galleon Property are in good standing at the time of this writing.

Energy metal markets are booming

The age of electrification across the transportation sector, the solar panel revolution, and Tesla’s battery gigafactory are igniting a battle for the cheapest battery. That will transform lithium into a boom-time mineral and the hottest commodity on the energy investor’s radar. It has been easy to take lithium for granted. This wonder mineral is the backbone of our everyday lives, popping up in everything from the glass in our windows to our mountains of electronics.

And while investors have long appreciated the steady rise in demand for this preferred mineral, the number of new applications continues to multiply. Smart phones, tablets, laptops, and other consumer electronics demand more lithium. But the largest driver for future lithium use will be in electric vehicles and home batteries for solar panels. That has lithium on the verge a boom for which supply can no longer be taken for granted.

Exceptional Properties

Electrum Gold-Silver Property, British Columbia – 100% owned

The Electrum property has a rich history with some of the highest grade hand-mined ore mined in North America combined with excellent logistics. The property is located directly between two high-grad vein gold/silver mines; the past producing Silbak Premier mine and Pretiums high-grade Brucejack mine (production in 2017).All three lie within the Iskut mineral district (a particularly prolific part of the Canadian Cordillera) with numerous geological similarities between them.

The Electrum Property holds significant potential to attract mining companies when considering its high-grade nature combined with the exceptional logistics in place.

  • Located in the prolific Golden Triangle of northwestern British Columbia, an area encompassing mineral rich belts that host more than 43 past producing mines including Eskay Creek, Silbak Premier, Granduc and Big Missouri.It is a hotbed of activity with one new mine having come online in 2015 (Imperial Mines Red Chris) and another scheduled for 2017 (Pretium Brucejack) and at least three more world-class mining projects headed toward production.
  • Located in a particularly rich valley with 4 past producing commercial mines and a 5th in the adjacent valley.
  • Includes the historic East Gold Mine that had intermittent small-scale production of approximately 46 tonnes of ore with grades averaging 1,661 grams of gold per tonne and 2,596 grams of silver per tone (roughly 50oz gold with 75oz silver).
  • Mineralization is believed to be very similar to the silver-gold-base metal veins responsible for the precious metal mineralization found in the Silbak Premier Mine and the Big Missouri mines (located in same extended valley).
  • Pretiums Brucejack Summary Report (for exploration) compares itself geologically to the Silbak Premier mine as well.
  • Exceptional gold and silver assays including 440 g/t gold with 400 g/t silver over 0.52m, with numerous silver intervals of 583g/t, 501 g/t, 420 g/t, 384 g/t in core, and surface samples of 80.96 g/t gold with 80,818 g/t silver, 694 g/t gold with 550 g/t silver, 54.77 g/t gold with 14,903 g/t silver, 615 g/t gold with 616 g/t silver.
  • A very successful program was run in 2015 wherein:
    • A new approach focusing on high-grade was employed very successfully
    • A new zone of gold / silver mineralization was discovered
    • A better understanding of the property geology was obtained
    • Surface samples from the structure averages 27,092 gm/tonne silver and 248 gm/tonne gold



  • The program proved the Electrum Property has multiple high-grade gold-silver epithermal breccia vein systems and gave us a better understating of their sequencing.
  • Excellent logistics including road access, power located 2 km away and a bulk tonnage shipping port and supportive mining town located just40 km away in a mining friendly jurisdiction.

The high-grade ELECTRUM PROPERTY recently had a program run on it. CLICK HERE for the Electrum presentation and HERE for the 2015 drill program presentation. The highly mineralized gossans on the Electrum are shown in the image at the top of this page.

2015 Drill Program Presentation

Treaty Creek Gold-Copper Property, British Columbia – 51% Joint Venture

Treaty Creek Property


Treaty Creek is located in British Columbia’s prolific Golden Triangle; one of the richest areas of mineralization in the world with one new mine having come online in 2015 (Imperial Mines Red Chris) and another scheduled for 2017 (Pretium Brucejack) and at least three more world-class mining projects headed toward production.

Mineralization in the Treaty Creek claims area lies within the same broad hydrothermal system that generated the several deposits on the Seabridge Gold KSM and the Pretivm Brucejack properties that lie immediately southwest of the Treaty Creek claims. So far over 130 million ounces of gold, 800 million ounces of silver and 20 billion pounds of copper (all categories included), representing one of the greatest concentrations of metal value on the planet, have been delineated within the geological system shared by KSM, Brucejack, and Treaty Creek.

Seabridge Gold’s KSM is the world’s largest undeveloped gold/silver project by reserves while Pretium’s Brucejack is the highest grading undeveloped large-scale gold project in the world.KSM has just past the environmental and permitting stage while the Brucejack is in construction phase.
Treaty Creek is part of the same large hydrothermal system as it’s neighbours, hosts the same bedrock geology as its neighbours, the same magneto-telluric (MT) anomalies that proved to be large deposits on the neighbours claims, the same major fault system (Sulphurets) that is responsible for KSM’s deposits, and initial exploration and drilling show similar results to initial drilling on KSM.

The Treaty Creek property is in a strategic location as it’s included in Seabridge’s plan for the KSM to go into production. Seabridge has proposed twin tunnels that would take the KSM ore through American Creek’s Treaty Creek property to a processing plant and tailings pond.

AGORACOM Welcomes Uragold Bay Resources (UBR: TSX-V) A leader in High Purity Quartz Exploration in Quebec, Also Developing Quebec’s First Placer Gold Mine

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 10:41 AM on Friday, July 18th, 2014

UBR: TSX-V

Why Uragold Bay Resources?

  • High Purity Silica (HPS) and Silicon Metal which is used in large part in the aluminum industry
  • Has become one of today’s key strategic minerals with applications in high-tech industries that include semiconductors, LCD displays, fused quartz tubing, microelectronics, solar silicon applications and recently, Silicon Anode Lithium Batteries

Uragolds business model focuses on developing low-risk, low-cost gold mining operations while exploring on core properties that hold the potential of discovering world class gold deposits. The Company’s properties are located in Canada in the Appalachian region of the province of Quebec. The properties benefit from extensive historical exploration work and from well-established infrastructure thereby helping to reduce exploration risks.

Developing Quebec’s First Placer Gold Mine

 

 

 

 
Beauce Placer Gold Project is located in the municipality of Saint-Simon-les-Mines in the Beauce region of southern Quebec. The project has all the required environmental permits to start its operations, and is in the final stage for obtaining a 20 year mining lease for a placer gold mining operation. It will be Quebec’s first placer mine in 50 years.

The Company declared inferred resource of 23,000 oz. AU (741,000 m3 @ 0.97 g Au/ m3) on the Rang Chaussegros section. The importance of the nugget effect on the project potential is such that gold recovery could be between 23,000 (741,000 m3 @ 0.97 g Au/ m3) and 140 000 ounces (741,000 m3 @ 5.9 g Au/ m3), as per data derived from the historical mining figures.;

Developing an open pit gold mine in the Beauce

In April 2014, Uragold singed a definitive option agreement with Golden Hope Mines (“GNH”) concerning the advancement of the Bellechasse-Timmins (BT) Gold Deposit into a producing mine.

In August 2012, GNH published a resource estimate of an indicated resource of 313,900 ounces gold (2.9 million tonnes grading 3.36 g/t Au) and an inferred resource of 102,000 ounces gold (2.17 million tonnes grading 1.46 g/t Au) using a cut-off grade of 0.60 g/t. Furthermore, GNH’s many bulk-sampling campaigns revealed extensive areas of surface mineralization averaging approximately 3 g/t Au. Notable were sampled areas averaging up to 10 g/t Au (Trench 09A).

The Beauce Placer property and the Golden Hope Mines’ Bellechasse-Timmins (BT) Gold Deposit (which are both ‘nuggety’ type deposits) are located within Magog Group sediments. It should be noted that the Beauce gold project has a thick till in contrast to the Bellechasse-Timmins (BT) Gold Deposit where most of the till has been eroded away and exposed the outcrops. This suggests that both the Beauce and the Bellechasse/ Timmins deposits are genetically related – the Beauce being a placer deposit derived from an unknown Bellechasse/ Timmins type deposit.

Under the terms of the Option Agreement, Uragold will be responsible for obtaining all required permits, approvals, and documentation associated with going into production, in return for a 30% interest in the property. Uragold will then have 120 days to obtain project financing, which, if successful, will earn it a further 20% interest, giving Uragold a 50% interest in the B-T deposit. The companies will then form a Joint Venture (JV) for the operation of the mine, with Uragold serving as operator. GNH will have a carried interest into production, and will receive a 50% Net Proceeds Royalty (“NPR”) on the gold produced.

  • 38,000 meters drilled, 2010 to 2012
  • Gold Recovery:
    • Gravity separation up to 92%
    • Total gold (gravity + cyanidation) 99%
  • Less than 1% Bellechase-Belt explored
  • Located in the municipality of Saint-Magloire, in the Beauce region of Quebec
  • 1 ½ hour drive south of Quebec City
  • 3 ½ hours from Montreal
  • Accessible year round on all paved roads, close to urban infrastructures

Moe River Gold Property

The Moe River Property is located in the southwestern part of the Quebec Appalachians in the Eastern Townships region of the Province of Quebec.

The gold bearing gravels of the Moe river valley has attracted prospectors since the 1900. Between 1958 and 1962, Tamara Mining Limited worked in the Moe River area, under the direction of G. A. Blair, P.Eng. Blair defined a historical resource based on the volume of gravels in the terraces along the river. He concluded that there were between 45 to 48 million cubic yards of material in all of the terraces containing a total of 400,000 ounces of placer gold.

Several foreign nations are already stockpiling materials critical to the emerging green technology economy, which means a reliable North American supply of high quality lithium-based products has never been more urgent. At Stria, we believe Canada has a key role to play in the green tech economy, and we plan to be a part of it by carving out a supply and technology niche in the critical and strategic metals world.

The Stria strategy …

Stria, through a business plan combining strategic alliances and property acquisition, aims to be among an elite group of Canadian producers helping to drive the clean tech economy through the provision of a dependable supply of “home-grown” lithium carbonate and through innovative mineral processing and purification technologies for primary lithium-spodumene ore.

Pontax-Lithium property …

Stria holds 100 per cent ownership of the Pontax-Lithium property located in the west-central James Bay territory in northern Quebec.

The property, which Stria acquired from Khalkos Exploration Inc. in 2013, is host to a recently discovered swarm of a dozen spodumene-bearing (a lithium mineral) pegmatite dikes, each one metre to 10 metres in thickness, plus a series of small centimetre-thick dikelets.

The lithium-bearing dikes outcrop over an area of 450 metres by 100 metres (for more information, click here to view the NI-43-101 Technical Report (Girard,2013) on the Pontax-Lithium Property).

Willcox Lithium / Arizona

Stria holds 100 per cent ownership of the Willcox Lithium project, located in Cochise County, Arizona. Acquired through the purchase of Pueblo Lithium LLC from AGR-O Phosphate Inc. in 2014, the property is comprised of 61 lode mining claims.

Willcox Playa is located a few kilometres south of the city of Willcox in north-central Cochise County, 120 km east of Tucson. This barren flat — elevation 1,260 metres (approx. 4,136 feet) — is the lowest part of Willcox basin, which is the northern end of Sulphur Springs Valley. The location is known for its lithium content, and Willcox Playa was part of the U.S. Geological Survey’s 1978 drill program testing lithium distributions in the late Cenozoic sedimentary basin.

Government Regulation Change Leads to Growth in Industry

Health Canada’s website explains that “The Marihuana Medical Access Program (MMAP) ends on March 31, 2014. This is also the date that all previous Authorizations to Possess, Personal-Use Production Licenses and Designated-Person Production Licenses expire. As of April 1, 2014, the only legal access to marihuana for medical purposes will be through licensed producers under the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR).” (http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/dhp-mps/marihuana/index-eng.php).

These regulation changes allow licensed producers to grow Medical Marijuana on a commercial scale. Previously, licensed individuals had been allowed to grow Medical Marijuana in their homes. Health Canada estimates that the market could be worth $1.3 billion by 2024. Analysts and industry experts peg estimates to be closer to $2.6 billion by 2016.

Health Canada’s website explains that “The Industrial Hemp Regulation Program permits Canadian farmers to grow low-TCH cannabis for industrial use, under controlled circumstances. This program administers the regulatory approval process for the commercial production of industrial hemp. It is comprised of a system of licenses, permits and authorizations for all persons in Canada engaged in the cultivation, distribution, importation, exportation, and processing of industrial hemp.” (See http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/hc-ps/substancontrol/hemp-chanvre/about-apropos/index-eng.php).

In the United States, Medical Marijuana is legal in 20 states including Washington, DC. Furthermore, Colorado and Washington State have legalized recreational use with additional states contemplating legalization. Recent analysis on the American marijuana marketplace by ArcView Angel Investors forecast a 64% surge in the legal U.S. cannabis market to $2.34 billion in 2014. They also estimate that the five-year national market could grow to $10.2 billion amid rising demand and potentially new state markets.
