St. Georges New Nickel Discovery on the Julie Project in Quebec; Best Results Includes 2.07% Nickel Over 3.62 Meters

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 11:43 AM on Monday, December 29th, 2014

Baie-Comeau, Quebec / December 29, 2014 / St-Georges Platinum and Base Metals Ltd. (OTCQX: SXOOF) (CNSX: SX) (BSE: 85G1) today confirmed the presence of a significant zone of Nickel-Copper-Cobalt mineralization on its wholly-owned Julie project located on the Quebec North Shore. Initial results received from Agat Laboratories from the latest surface exploration campaign yielded some noticeable nickel grade intervals from channel samples, drill core and blast samples.

A surface area measuring 70 metres by 56 metres referred to as “T1 Zone” is the focus of this news release. All of the initial results provided in the table below are from this zone. The ultramafic intrusive suite that hosts the new discovery can be traced along a magnetic conductor identified in 2011, which runs for approximately 13 kilometres in a WSW to ENE trend. At this point, it appears that the mineralized zone remains open in all directions.

The table below outlines the initial and partial results from a 17.26 metre channel that was taken along the identified magnetic conductor on the T1 Zone at a 45? angle:

From To Interval* Nickel Copper Cobalt
(Metres) (Metres) (Metres) (%) (%) (%)
T1 Channel 1 0 8.49 8.49 1.71 0.271 0.0347
including 0 3.62 3.62 2.07 0.31 0.04

* Reported channel cuts sections are not true widths. An apparent surface width of 15 metres can be calculated, but at this time there is insufficient data with respect to the shape of the mineralization to calculate true orientations in space. The starting point of the channel cut was located at N49? 57.463′ W69? 27.045′ and cut at a 45? angle in relation with the mineralized body.

Results from a portable drill hole are also available. The hole was drilled from surface to the shallow depth of 0.52 metres at a 90? angle and the entire core was assayed. The drill hole was located at N49? 57.467′ W69? 27.046′.

From To Interval* Nickel Copper Cobalt
(Metres) (Metres) (Metres) (%) (%) (%)
T1 Hole #1 0 0.52 0.52 1.70 0.29 0.04

Finally, results from a representative 10.2 kg sample cut from a 81.42 kg blast sample block taken 18.6 metres away to the S-E of the T1-Channel-1’s starting location was also sent to the labs. The location of that sample was at N49? 57.454′ W69? 27.045′

Weight Nickel Copper Cobalt
(Kilogram) (%) (%) (%)
Blast Sample 8749 10.2 1.68 0.301 0.0345

Additional channel and portable drill core samples are expected to be received from Agat Laboratories by the end of January and will be released as they are made available. Maps and diagrams should be available in the coming days on the new company web site.

Quality Control

Mr. Joel Scodnick (P.Geo.), Vice-President Exploration of the Company, is the non-independent qualified person for the technical disclosure contained in this news release. Mr. Scodnick has supervised the work programs on the Julie Project, examined the samples summarized in this release, discussed, reviewed the results with the Company’s geological staff and reviewed the available analytical and quality control results.

Channel cuts samples and drill core samples were transported in sealed bags from Baie-Comeau to a warehouse facility in Montreal. There they have been opened, washed, photographed again, logged, resealed and transported to Agat Laboratories in Dorval, Quebec. Agat Laboratories transported the samples to their analytical facilities in Mississauga, Ontario. Base metal analyses were initially obtained via ICP-AES Aqua Regia and 4 Acid digestion. The two digestion methods show good correlation. Nickel values in excess of 10,000 ppm were reanalyzed using a sodium peroxide fusion followed by ICP-AES finish.

St Greorges Platinum Signs Option Agreement with Exploration Khalkos Inc.

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:08 AM on Thursday, September 25th, 2014

Montreal, Quebec /September 25, 2014 / St-Georges Platinum & Base Metals ltd (OTCQX: SXOOF) (CSE: SX) (FSE: 85G1) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement to acquire the exclusive rights to the Poissons Blancs Nickel-Copper-Cobalt Property in Quebec from Khalkos Exploration Inc. (TSX-V:KAS).

The Poissons Blancs Property

The property consists of 93 contiguous mineral claims for a total area 5225 hectares located in the Saguenay Lac St-Jean region. The deposit was discovered in the 1970’s with most exploration work carried out at the end of the 1980’s. It is deemed to contain historic resources of 5.9 million tonnes at a grade of 0.21% Nickel, 0.11% Copper and 0.03% Cobalt (non-NI 43-101 compliant).

To acquire the Poissons Blancs property, St-Georges Platinum agreed to issue 800,000 shares of its capital over a period of 4 years starting in the Fall of 2015. Furthermore St-Georges agreed to transfer to Exploration Khalkos Inc. the Cooper Lake Project (Villebon East) which is comprised of 9 mineral claims in Abitibi, Quebec.

The parties agree to establish the commercial value of the Cooper Lake Claims and the Poissons Blancs Property at CAD450,000 each. A 1.0% NSR in favour of each company was assigned to their respective properties, the latter being exercisable at any time and half of the royalty can be purchased for the sum of CAN $500,000. St-Georges will establish an exploration strategy for this project and will be planning some exploration work for next spring and summer.

OTHER CORPORATE MATTERS

Julie Nickel-Copper-Cobalt & PGE Project

The Company has initiated permitting for a medium size drilling campaign along the section of its project referred to as the Julie Corridor. Samples from the fall 2013 surface campaign (channel cuts and surface drill cores) will be ready for lab analysis later this fall. St-Georges’ geological team is planning a campaign in two phases aimed at maximizing the project value. The first phase would be limited to a shallow drilling campaign targeting the 1.8 km corridor mineralized at surface. The goal of this campaign is to test for nickel mineralization at depths of maximum 50 meters along the 1.8 km target zone.

A second drilling and mapping phase of larger magnitude is planned to follow in early spring of 2015.

Isoukustouc Project

The Company is reviewing its options for Isoukustouc. Different groups have shown interest and limited due diligence has been initiated. At this time there is no serious discussions regarding either a sale, option or Joint-Venture on this project and the Company is still entertaining any third party proposal that would bring value to its shareholders.

Zambian Copper-Cobalt Acquisition

The Company is still involved in negotiations to acquire one or more large projects in Zambia near or in production. Different local vendors have shown renewed interest to enter a beneficial agreement with St-Georges but the Company’s management considers these discussions as “early-stage” and cannot comment on when or if they will have a positive conclusion in the short term.

North Shore Campaign on the Julie Nickel-Pge Project & Corporate Update

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 2:24 PM on Friday, July 25th, 2014

 

Montreal, Quebec / July 25, 2014 – St-Georges Platinum and Base Metals Ltd. (OTCQX: SXOOF) (CSE: SX) (BSE: 85G1) is pleased to update its shareholders on exploration efforts on its Julie Nickel & PGE project on Quebec’s North Shore and on other corporate matters.

Julie Nickel & PGE Project 2014 Campaign

St-Georges‘ personnel has started to work on planning and permitting for a drilling campaign. This campaign is designed to test 75-100 metres of depth within a block 1,500 metres long by 200 metres wide within the previously identified 1.5 km corridor of sulphide impregnated rock that has been mapped at surface. The Company is expecting to complete the surface sampling and channelling campaign initiated last year along the 1.5 km identified sulphide rich zone.

This program will sample large sections of the remaining 10 km electromagnetic conductor located within an identified mafic unit which coincides with a few sulphide rich outcrops of interest. Large sections of the sulphide rich outcrop will be investigated through channel sampling and a tight grid that encompasses the 1.5 km corridor already identified. Random samples will be collected from outcrops during mapping traverses. A gravimetric survey is also proposed for this area to further define targets.

Shongwa & Mwinilunga; Proposed Acquisition in Zambia

As announced earlier, the Company has completed all title verification on the proposed Zambian transaction.

However, technical due diligence has been hampered by delays in acquisition of supporting data related to reports and information initially delivered to us by the vendor. The Definitive Feasibility Study commissioned by the vendor, Kasni Investment Limited in 2013, makes certain claims regarding the existence of a very large mineral resource and we have failed so far to find the evidence supporting the existence of any size of mineral resource. The Company has no firm timetable as to when or whether the necessary data will be delivered and allow the completion of the due diligence. Therefore, a definitive closing, if any, for this proposed transaction is impossible to predict.

Initial announcement of the proposed Zambian Transaction in February provided the Company with additional offers similar in size and grade to the original project. In a few cases these offers are similar or better entry points for St-Georges than the original. The Company is reviewing the potential for acquisition of near production projects in Zambia, Namibia and in South Africa.

Other Transactions

Firming up in Nickel prices and renewed interest for the commodity has triggered new interest for nickel projects. The Balmoral Resources (BAR on the TSX) discovery earlier this year of 45.28 metres grading 1.79% nickel, 0.19% copper, 0.42 g/t platinum and 1.04 g/t palladium has also contributed to renewed interest in high grade nickel projects in Quebec. St-Georges has been contacted by groups looking to enter the nickel exploration field and the Company has initiated discussions to sell or joint venture some of the projects that it owns in Quebec. For comparison purpose only, the 2011 surface campaign on the Julie Nickel & PGE Project yielded an average of 1.78% nickel and 0.33% copper from select surface samples collected within the above described 1.5 km sulphide rich zone identified as the Julie Corridor.

Mark Billings, St-Georges Chairman and Director, stated: “The title opinion we received from KCK is an important milestone  along with the completion of the analysis of available geological and engineering data which should be on track with the previously announced schedule, it should provide enough comfort to recommend to our shareholders to endorse this acquisition. We received a fair amount of interest for these projects and are pleased with the response from the financial community in relation to the Company’s plan to move forward in Zambia.”

Mandate of KCK & Associates

In the course of the due diligence process, St-Georges hired KCK & Associates as independent legal advisors to establish its Zambian subsidiary and to assist the Company in the process of title and permit verification. KCK & Associates is a law firm established in Lusaka, Zambia that specializes in Corporate and Mining Law. The firm works for an extensive array of clients in the mining sector and with Governmental entities.

St-Georges Provides Corporate Update

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 2:45 PM on Tuesday, May 6th, 2014

 

Montreal, Quebec / May 6, 2014 / St-Georges Platinum and Base Metals Ltd. (OTCQX: SXOOF) (CSE: SX) (FSE: 85G1) would like to inform its shareholders and stakeholders about the progress of its operations. The Company would also like to inform its shareholders that it filed its annual financial statements and management’s discussion and analysis or MD&A on April 30, 2014, for the period ended December 31, 2013. The financial statements and MD&A are available on SEDAR at the address www.sedar.com under St-Georges Platinum.

Zambian Projects

The Company entered into a binding agreement to acquire two Copper-Cobalt-Gold projects in Zambia on February 5, 2014. The initial agreement called for a 90-day due diligence to expire at midnight Eastern Standard Time on May 5, 2014. Due diligence is progressing at a good pace with most of the title verification completed. Geological and Metallurgical testing will take additional time. St-Georges’ technical team has adopted a sceptical approach in reviewing the recent production data due to the high numbers and especially very high copper and cobalt grades reported to the Company by the operator on site. The Company had expected to rely on independent third party visit reports to conclude the due diligence but, in light of the current situation, management has decided to send a team on site later this month or in the early part of the month of June. Management also plans to acquire 500 metric tonnes of production mineral concentrate from the current Mwinilunga production in order to independently verify the grades and conduct metallurgical testing. Large portion of this bulk test will be conducted by AGAT Laboratories in Canada. The company also plans to hire two local mining engineers in the month of May to help with this due diligence effort. Finally, independent laboratory testing of the shipped material, and selected grab samples taken along the reef structure on Mwinilunga are expected this month and the Company will release more details about the progress of the due diligence conducted on site later this month.

The Company expects to conclude its due diligence no later than June 30, 2014 and would like to put the agreement to a shareholders vote at a Shareholders meeting as soon as the due diligence has been completed. The acquisition would be finalized right after a positive vote at the Shareholder Meeting expected in August 2014.

On May 5, 2014, the Company signed an amendment to the February 5, 2014 binding term sheet agreement that extends the due diligence period option until June 30, 2014 and the proposed closing date to no later than August 31, 2014.

Other Corporate Matters

Metallurgical Extraction Technologies Subsidiary

On December 3, 2013 the Company announced that it had entered into an option agreement with Allied Nickel in order to acquire a North American Exclusive License for Patented Technologies controlled by Allied. Lack of financial resources and time constraints caused by the acquisition of the Zambian projects limited the abilities of the Company to conduct a satisfactory due diligence on the technologies at stake. Allied informed the Company that they are willing to negotiate new terms or a new agreement with St-Georges but no details have been communicated as yet. St-Georges consider that there is no current agreement for the time being and it is evaluating other avenues to advance its intentions to build a metallurgical and processing technologies division.

Highlights from the Audited Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2013

  • — Total assets of the Company as at December 31, 2013 were $1,428,804 following a write down of $6,796,442 to recognize an impairment in the value of its Quebec mining exploration and evaluation assets.– Shareholders’ equity in St-Georges was $270,675 as at December 31, 2013.– As at December 31, 2013 St-Georges had negative working capital of $493,533 compared to negative working capital at December 31, 2012 of $1,672,027.

    — As at April 30, 2014, the Company had 28,448,661 common shares issued and outstanding. At the closing price of $0.125 on that date, the market capitalization of St-Georges was $3,556,083.

According to Vivian Doyle-Kelly, Chief Financial Officer of the Company, “2013 was a year of transition as St-Georges addressed its management structure and balance sheet in order to position itself to develop its strategic vision and take advantage of opportunities which it has identified”

AGORACOM Welcomes (SX: CSE) St. Georges Platinum and Base Metals

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 10:00 AM on Thursday, February 13th, 2014

SX: CSE

St-Georges Platinum & Base Metals Ltd. is a junior Platinum, Palladium, Rhodium, Copper, Cobalt and Nickel explorer with projects in the Province of Quebec, Canada. Headquartered in Montreal, the Company’s stock is listed on the CSE under the symbol SX, the OTCQX under the symbol SXOOF and the Berlin Stock Exchange under the symbol 85G.

The company owns the Villebon Copper-Nickel and PGEs property in Abitibi and a 100% interest in the Julie and Isoukustouc Nickel-Copper-PGEs projects.

It also owns a 100% interest in ten North Shore properties that constitute the Manicouagan constellation which are explored for Nickel, Copper, Platinum, Palladium and Graphite and 50% equity interest in 6 properties explored for graphite with Amseco Exploration, all the latter being on Quebec’s North Shore near the deep-seaport town of Baie-Comeau.

Isoukoustouc Complex:

St-Georges Platinum expanded the Isoukoustouc and Julie properties by staking an additional 238 claims to its 57 mining claims. In addition, 13,185 hectares have been added to approximately 34 sq. Km in the Isoukoustouc Nickel Trend.

Manic-3, Mathilda & B-40

(Copper, Nickel, Palladium, Cobalt)

Lac Julie: 124 km northwest of the town of Baie-Comeau, Quebec

(Average assay values of 0.33 wt. % Cu and 1.78 wt. % N)

Manicouagan Constellation:

A prospective grass root target for PGE’s with limited historical work. Additional claims might be added or withdrawn from this group of properties in the coming year as the Company plans to improve this holding.

Villebon:

St Georges owns a 70% interest in the core portion of the Villebon property situated less than 2 km east of the Provincial Highway #117, and 45 km south-east of Val d’Or .
The company entered into a binding agreement to acquire 100% of two mineral mining projects in the Kasempa and Mwinilunga Districts in Western Zambia.

Shongwa Project (Kasempa District)

The Shongwa IOCG & Nickel project is located in Northwestern Zambia. The project area lies approximately 60km northwest of the town of Kasempa in northwest Zambia. The area is poorly developed with only minor trails away from the gravel Kasempa-Kaoma road link. The area consists of forested and relatively flat covered plains with some rolling hills and some permanent watercourses. Minor areas of habitation and subsistence farming exist to the south of Shongwa.

The Large Scale Prospecting License (LPL) 14817-HQ-LPL covers an area of 726 square km. It was recently converted into 3 mining licenses covering the same total territory.

The Shongwa project is the site of one of the oldest known deposits in Zambia dating back to the fourth century. Since the rediscovery of these ancient workings in 1899, the area has been mined intermittently for the recovery of high-grade copper ore. From 1903 until 1914, copper was recovered by underground mining of high-grade veins, followed by hand sorting and direct smelting. Mining activities terminated with the onset of World War 1.
