Janet Yellen Gave Junior Resource Companies The Green Light, Let’s Step On The Gas

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 3:56 PM on Friday, March 18th, 2016

Good day to all of our CEOs and IROs.  Just a few months ago, even the best of the best in the junior resource space faced an uncertain future.  Then, AGORACOM made the following prediction in this very newsletter on January 5:

Despite the fact the TSX Venture Index has fallen more than 58% since 2013 and hit a 21st Century low, traffic to AGORACOM quite clearly demonstrates that small cap investors are maintaining their levels of research and due diligence, which is the exact opposite of what you would expect and what you have heard.  Specifically, rather than abandoning the small cap space for dead, investors are here and paying close attention.

This is a great sign for all of us in the small-cap industry and points to the strong possibility of a recovery in 2016 as investors convert their increased research into increased investments.

And this is what the year has looked like since:

IT GETS BETTER – YELLEN REMOVES ALL DOUBT OF BULL MARKET. AGORACOM PREDICTS 700 FOR TSX VENTURE

As most of you know by now, Janet Yellen and the US Federal Reserve cut back their interest rate hike plan for 2016, which virtually assures a bull market in the resources sector for the remainder of the year.  It won’t be a straight line bull but our technical analysis calls for 700 on the TSX Venture within 12 months.

How good are we at predictions? Our January 5th prediction already came through. Read the following in your spare time:

Shocked By Yellen This Week? AGORACOM Unequivocal History Of Calling Lower US 10-Year Treasury Yields

YELLEN GAVE JUNIORS THE GREENLIGHT. TIME TO STEP ON THE GAS
Anyone and everyone with any experience recognized that 2015 was the year of blood in the streets.  The market was bound to turn and it was on its way.  But now the entire industry has been given the green light – and you need to step on the gas.

Standard Graphite Receives Approval for Option to Acquire Historical Resource at Mousseau East Deposit in Quebec

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:15 AM on Monday, June 25th, 2012

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(June 25, 2012) - Standard Graphite Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SGH) (the “Company”), is pleased to announce that it has now received TSX Venture Exchange approval for the option agreement to acquire the Mousseau East Deposit located some 40 kilometres northeast of the town of Mont-Laurier in northwestern Québec, as originally disclosed in the Company’s News Release dated April 24, 2012. The new property is located within 50 kilometres of Timcal Canada Inc.’s producing Lac-des-Îles Graphite Mine, which is currently the larger of the two producing mines in North America. Standard Graphite now intends to conduct strategic exploration with the aim of building a NI 43-101 compliant resource by upgrading the historical non-compliant resource on the property.

The Mousseau East Deposit was discovered in 1983 following the emplacement of a new road in the area north of Ste-Véronique, Québec. Systematic exploration was carried out by Graphicor between 1989 and 1993 with property-scale electromagnetic geophysical surveys along cut grids, and exploration and definition drilling leading to resource estimates. Drilling completed between 1989 and 1992 consisted of three successive campaigns and some 62 diamond drill holes, totaling 4996 metres, allowing for a resource calculation to be conducted. The possibility of initiating a mining operation was evaluated using only a 40-metre-deep open-pit on the main resource of the Mousseau East Deposit.

This preliminary evaluation of the mining potential was based on resource estimates calculated internally in 1992 by Graphicor Resources for the levels comprised between surface and -40 metres. This estimate was further verified and validated independently by Derry, Michener, Booth and Wahl (DMB&W), now based in Vancouver. The historical non-NI 43-101 compliant estimates quoted are presented in the table below.

Mousseau East Deposit
Historical Resource Estimates
Category
Proven Probable Possible
Tonnes Grade

(% Cg)

Tonnes Grade

(% Cg)

Tonnes Grade

(% Cg)

Graphicor 598,480 8.29 219,450 8.13 288,760 7.85
DMB&W 578,500 8.02 528,080 8.28

A qualified person has not completed the work necessary to verify the historical estimates as mineral reserves or resource for purposes of NI 43-101. The Company is not treating the historical mineral resource estimates as NI 43-101 defined current resources or reserves. The historical estimates should not be relied upon. This property will require considerable further evaluation, which Standard’s management and consultants intend to carry out in due course.

It must be emphasized that this resource only takes into consideration the levels comprised between surface and -40 metres. The graphite horizon is anticipated to continue below the -40m level as well as along strike. Some further untested targets need to be explored; especially a widening of the conductive zone located some 600 metres to the SE of the main Mousseau East Deposit. The Company is planning due diligence work to begin soon on the project, and a field exploration program will be implemented following a complete assessment of the historical information. Due to the project having been left dormant since 1992, the Company has begun to assess the drill locations, cross sections, EM data, and proposed mine plan from previous operators.

Please click the following link for an overview of the Mousseau East project:

http://www.standardgraphite.com/i/pdf/mousseau.pdf

Terms

The Terms of the Agreement have been amended from those disclosed in the Company’s April 24th press release to the following: Standard will acquire a 100% interest in the project by making aggregate cash payments of $375,000 and issuing shares with an aggregate value of $400,000 (based on the ten day Volume Weighted Average Price subject to a minimum price per share of $0.30) prior to the Second Anniversary to the Vendor as follows:

(i) $25,000 in cash on signing Definitive Agreement; (ii) $50,000 in cash and $100,000 in common shares within 48 hours of TSX Venture Exchange (TSXV) approval; (iii) an additional $100,000 in cash and $100,000 in common shares on or before the first anniversary of TSXV approval; and (iv) an additional $200,000 in cash and $200,000 in common shares on or before the second anniversary of TSXV approval. In addition, the Company has agreed to a $100,000 work commitment to be completed on or before the first anniversary.

Bonuses of either $500,000 or $750,000 in either cash or shares are payable by Standard to the Vendor upon filing of a technical report within one year of TSXV approval, which discloses Measured & Indicated resources on the property of 5,000,000 and 8,000,000 tonnes respectively with a minimum grade of 6% Cg.

The Vendor will retain a 1% Net Smelter Royalty (“NSR”) on the property that can be repurchased by Standard for $500,000.

Antoine Fournier, P.Geo., manages Standard’s exploration and development programs and is the Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101. He supervised the preparation of the technical information in this release.

AGORACOM Client Intelligence Report – September 2009

Posted by AGORACOM at 8:40 AM on Friday, September 11th, 2009

Welcome to all the new CEO’s and IRO’s who are receiving this month’s Small Cap Intelligence Report from AGORACOM Investor Relations.

WHY AN “INTELLIGENCE REPORT”

For the benefit of our new clients, we call this an “Intelligence Report” because it provides you with important information, data and trends that impact your business – information that you normally don’t have time to find.  We often write about these in The AGORACOM Blog, so we call these “On The Blog” Stories.

In addition, this article gives you a chance to look into our crystal ball and know what AGORACOM is working on months before the general public.  You can’t find these tidbits on our blog, so we call them “Off The Blog” and ask that you keep them confidential.  As you know, we move faster than any IR firm on the planet, so knowing what we’re doing in advance helps both of us coordinate our activities.  This is especially true for what we expect to be an extremely fast moving and exciting year.

In short, greater market intelligence that puts you ahead of all of your peers.

I can’t stress enough my recommendation that you review our monthly newsletter carefully for the purposes of incorporating some of our market intelligence into both your IR and business initiatives.

AGORACOM is now the largest small-cap IR firm and site on the continent thanks to our effective use of web technology.  As such, following us will help you achieve your goals.

The AGORACOM Client Intelligence Report – February 2009

Posted by AGORACOM - Mitch at 2:34 PM on Sunday, February 1st, 2009

We’re pleased to provide you with the February 2009 edition of The AGORACOM Client Intelligence Report. For those of you who didn’t receive our last report or are new clients of AGORACOM, you can now find an archive of these reports on our blog here.  For confidentiality reasons, all “Off The Blog” items mentioned in these reports are not mentioned in the blog posts.

WHY AN “INTELLIGENCE REPORT”

For the benefit of our new clients, we call this an “Intelligence Report” because it provides you with important information, data and trends that impact your business – information that you normally don’t have time to find. We often write about these in The AGORACOM Blog, so we call these “On The Blog” Stories.

In addition, this newsletter gives you a chance to look into our crystal ball and know what AGORACOM is working on months before the general public. You can’t find these tidbits on our blog, so we call them “Off The Blog” and ask that you keep them confidential.

As you know, we move faster than any IR firm on the planet, so knowing what we’re doing in advance helps both of us coordinate our activities. This is especially true for what we expect to be an extremely fast moving and exciting year in 2009.

In short, greater market intelligence that puts you ahead of all of your peers.

I can’t stress enough my recommendation that you review our monthly newsletter carefully for the purposes of incorporating some of our market intelligence into both your IR and business initiatives.

ON THE BLOG

Throughout 2008, we’ve provided a series of blog posts entitled “Small-Cap CEO Lessons”.  The purpose of this series has been to provide CEO’s with valuable data and information that would beneficially impact their business.

With the year winding down, it makes sense to re-visit the Top 10 lessons of the year in order to help you make the best decisions possible for 2009.

Given the fact AGORACOM attracted 1.2 million investors that visited 7.6 million times and read 101 million pages of information this year by using many of these techniques, it is safe to say our Small-Cap CEO lessons are more than self-serving lip service.
