CLIENT FEATURE: Garibaldi Resources (GGI: TSX-V) $1.7M in Working Capital + Strong News Flow

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 12:32 PM on Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

WHY GARIBALDI RESOURCES CORP?

  • $1.7 million in working capital as per latest financials (Apr 30)
  • Attractive share structure
  • no warrants, no major financings since 2009
  • Drilling in progress – strong news flow from Mexico and B.C.

LEADERSHIP. MOVING FORWARD. BUILDING VALUE.

  • Synergistic mix of business, market & geological expertise
  • Drilling underway at La Patilla Gold Property (high-grade targets) plus multiple drill-ready targets at 3 district-scale projects in Mexico
  • Largest landholder (262km2) among juniors in Sheslay Cu – Au porphyry discovery area at top of B.C’s Golden Triangle

GARIBALDI APPROACH AND ADVANTAGE IN MEXICO

 

Through the strength of its geological team and the use of cutting- edge technology and proprietary data, Garibaldi has built a foundation for lasting success in Mexico:

  • GGI continues to accurately pinpoint the most prospective targets for potential new discoveries in large, district-scale land packages
  • Project value is being cost-effectively unlocked
  • Financial strength is being built (i.e., sale of Temoris option, current Tonichi pilot coal program generating royalty income)

La Patilla Project

  • First-ever diamond drilling at the La Patilla gold property in Sinaloa state has returned highly encouraging gold values near-surface, including an interval grading 10.4 grams per tonne gold over 8.5
  • Five of six holes drilled to test the La Patilla vein system intersected broad zones of mineralization along 75 metres of strike length to depths of approximately 50 metres

Rodadero North Project

  • Drilling along almost 100 meters of strike length has returned significant high-grade silver intersections within 50 meters of surface, and mineralization remains open in all directions;
  • SE-14-03 intersected 1,935 g/t Ag (62.2 oz/t) between 4 and 5 meters’ depth while the most recent hole (SE-14-06) – the farthest step-out from previously reported discovery hole SE-14-01 – has produced the widest mineralized intercept to date;
  • Surface sampling at three target areas immediately southeast and east of Silver Eagle has returned high-grade silver (up to 8,000 g/t Ag) in addition to high-grade gold (up to 52.6 g/t Au) as explained further in this update;
  • As Garibaldi commences a second round of drilling at Silver Eagle, the total number of mineralized target areas within the 45 sq. km Rodadero North Project has increased from eight to 11.

NORTHWEST B.C. – DOMINANT LANDHOLDER IN EMERGING SHESLAY CAMP


  • Successful exploration methods developed in Mexico are now being adopted to rapidly advance the company’s 100%-owned Grizzly Property
  • Multiple targets are being identified over 15 km from Grizzly West to Grizzly Central
  • GGI is the largest landholder among juniors in this highly prospective, under-exploited new Cu-Au porphyry discovery area in prolific Stikine Arch
  • Recently announced that it has acquired two highly prospective Cu-Au porphyry properties within the Stikine Arch

Red Lion

  • The Red Lion prospect, comprising 35 sq. km, is located 60 km south of AuRico Gold’s Kemess mine and adjoins the Kiska Metals’ Kliyul Cu-Au porphyry project under option to Teck Resources Ltd. The Red Lion shows extremely strong Cu-Au stream sediment geochemistry in both Government Regional Geochemical Survey responses and follow-up proprietary surveys. Access and infrastructure at Red Lion are excellent with the powerline to the Kemess South mine only three km away.

Mount Sister Mary (MSM)

  • The MSM prospect, comprising 58 sq. km, is located approximately 50 km northeast of Imperial Metals’ Red Chris mine and is underlain by similar Triassic and Jurassic volcanic and plutonic rocks. Government Regional Geochemical Survey responses confirm prior assessment work in which at least eight Cu-Ag-Au showings have been documented on the property.

Solar Boom Driving First Global Panel Shortage Since 2006

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 11:32 AM on Tuesday, August 19th, 2014
By Ehren Goossens Aug 19, 2014 10:26 AM ET

The solar industry is facing a looming shortage of photovoltaic panels, reversing a two-year slump triggered by a global glut.

The oversupply pushed prices through the floor, making solar power more competitive and driving up demand. It also dragged dozens of manufacturers into bankruptcy, and slowed capital investment at the survivors. With installations expected to swell as much as 29 percent this year, executives are bracing for the first shortfall since 2006.

Scarcity will benefit the biggest manufacturers, including China’s Yingli Green Energy Holdings Co. (YGE) and Trina Solar Ltd. (TSL) A shortage may slow development outside the top markets in Asia and North America if suppliers favor their largest customers. Shipments to large, utility-scale solar farms may get priority over smaller, rooftop systems, threatening one of the industry’s fastest-growing markets.

“The cell and module glut has certainly dried up,” said Stefan de Haan, a solar analyst at IHS Inc. “There is no massive overcapacity anymore.”

The looming shortage shows the rapid expansion of solar energy. The industry may install as much as 52 gigawatts this year and 61 gigawatts in 2015. That’s up from 40 gigawatts in 2013, and more than seven times what developers demanded five years ago, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance.

Workers operate on the assembly line that makes photovoltaic cells, the main energy… Read More

The industry has about 70 gigawatts of production capacity, New Energy Finance estimates, including a significant amount of older equipment that’s not profitable. The supply-demand balance is tighter than those numbers suggest. De Haan estimates capacity at about 59 gigawatts, excluding manufacturing lines that are out of date or obsolete.

‘On Par’

Considering only “factories that are meaningful and active,” supply and demand is “almost on par,” said Luc Grare, senior vice president for the Norwegian panelmaker REC Solar ASA.

The last time supplies were hard to find was in 2006, when the nascent industry installed just 1.5 gigawatts of capacity. The following year, the top Chinese manufacturers raised $1.8 billion selling stock to Wall Street to finance new production capacity.

Chinese manufacturers sold about $5 billion of shares from 2005 to 2010, and wrested control of the market from companies in the U.S., Germany and Japan. The added capacity drove down prices and pushed dozens of manufacturers into bankruptcy. Solar panels sell for 76 cents a watt now, compared with $2.01 at the end of 2010. The price has slipped 12 percent this year.

The Commerce Department on Tuesday (3 June 2014) imposed steep duties on importers of… Read More

Expanding Now

Nobody is predicting upheaval now. Production capacity this year is “expected to stay more or less flat, but consolidate, with new-build balancing exits,” said Jenny Chase, lead solar analyst at New Energy Finance.

Some manufacturers are already expanding. In May, Canadian Solar Inc. (CSIQ) began construction on a new cell factory in China, a joint venture with GCL-Poly Energy Holdings Ltd. that will initially have 300 megawatts of annual capacity.

The solar industry is cyclical and near a turning point, said Canadian Solar Chief Executive Officer Shawn Qu. He’s expanding now because he anticipates a shortage.

“Every industry goes through cycles,” Qu said. “It’s inevitable to see a cycle in solar.”

Other manufacturers already see a shortfall.

“It would be fair to say our panels are in short supply,” said Tom Werner, CEO of SunPower Corp. (SPWR) The San Jose, California-based company’s factories are running at full, and it announced in July plans for a new factory that may begin production in 2017 and will be able to make at least 700 megawatts a year. That’s more than double the plant it’s bringing online next year.

Supply Chain

When panels become scarce, they’ll probably be routed to customers placing the biggest orders, said Angelo Zino, an analyst in New York at S&P Capital IQ.

“The large-scale utility projects are going to be where the modules go,” Zino said. “If there’s any sort of tightness in the supply chain, you would think that the push-outs would be on the residential side.”

That potential threat to the rapidly growing U.S. residential solar market prompted SolarCity Corp. (SCTY) to buy a panelmaker in June. The rooftop developer expects demand to surge, especially for systems atop homes and commercial buildings.

SolarCity Deal

“At some point, it will be a 400-gigawatt-a-year market; it’s just mathematical,” said CEO Lyndon Rive. Smaller companies without supply contracts may be unable to get enough panels.

Billionaire Elon Musk, SolarCity’s chairman, said the acquisition will guarantee supply. “If we don’t do this, we thought there was risk of not being able to have the solar panels we need,” he said during a conference call announcing the deal.

Any shortage may also limit deliveries to markets where stronger demand means better pricing, said REC Solar’s Grare.

Regions with “heavy price competition” such as Latin America will feel a shortage first, while regions with stable prices, such as the U.S. and Japan, will be prioritized, he said.

Companies that make manufacturing equipment such as Germany’s Manz AG expect the looming shortage to spur orders.

“According to our estimation, the gap between supply and demand will be closed at the end of 2014,” said Axel Bartmann, a spokesman for Manz. “This will definitely lead to rising investments in advanced equipment.”

Panel Pricing

Unlike other industries, a shortage probably won’t boost prices, said Arno Harris, CEO of Recurrent Energy, a San Francisco-based developer owned by Sharp Corp.

As production costs slide, manufacturers can increase profit without raising prices. That’s important because solar power is extremely price-sensitive, Harris said.

“It would be difficult for module pricing to really go up because there isn’t going to be natural demand for those products at those higher price points,” Harris said. “If you raise the price too much they’ll move on to something else. They’ll move on to gas, they’ll move on to wind.”

AGORACOM Founder, George Tsiolis and Chief Market Commentator, Allan Barry Go Via Satellite to discuss and debate Allan’s Best picks this week. Companies Included on this week’s show are:

WHY IS JULY 11, 2013 SO IMPORTANT?

Allan and George have already put their viewers well ahead of the game by starting their weekly broadcasts on July 11, 2013 on the thesis that great small-cap companies were so oversold they could not be ignored. One look at the TSX Venture Index proves they hit the nail on the head … but that doesn’t come close to telling the whole story with most of their picks far outperforming an index bloated with zombie companies.

THEN THEY DID IT AGAIN AT TAX LOSS SELLING SEASON

When the first run from July 11 ran its course, small cap investors made the mistake of thinking small caps had run their course.  George and Allan knew better and they geared up for run #2, airing this special episode on December 18 where they each made their top 6 picks for the next 45 days ending January 31st … the results were again outstanding:

Medical pot cookie prohibition ruled unconstitutional

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 10:31 AM on Friday, August 15th, 2014

Court challenge stems from B.C. case of Owen Smith, who was charged with trafficking for baking pot cookies

CBC News Posted: Aug 14, 2014 10:42 AM PT Last Updated: Aug 15, 2014 6:35 AM PT

Ban on medical marijuana cookies ruled unconstitutional 1:57

It’s unconstitutional to forbid licensed medical marijuana users from possessing pot-laced products, such as cookies or body creams, a B.C. Court of Appeal judge has ruled.

Parliament has been given one year to recraft regulations to allow medicinal marijuana users to use products made from cannabis extract. They can include creams, salves, oils, brownies, cakes, cookies and chocolate bars.

Health Canada currently allows people suffering from debilitating illnesses access to medicinal marijuana, but only in the form of dried marijuana.

In her written reasons, Justice Risa Levine said this specification “is arbitrary and cannot be justified in a free and democratic society.”

Levine went on to state that when patients choose to use edible forms of marijuana, it “was a matter of necessity, or put another way, the restriction to dried marijuana interfered with their physical or psychological integrity.”

Pot activists react to ruling RAW2:25

Case of the pot cookie baker

The court challenge stems from the case of Owen Smith, who was charged with trafficking for baking pot cookies and producing topical cannabis creams for a medical marijuana club in Victoria in 2009.

Smith was caught baking more than 200 pot cookies for the Victoria Cannabis Buyers Club, and had a supply of cannabis-infused cooking oils and some dried dope in his apartment when he was arrested.

Marijuana ruling - Owen Smith pot cookie bakerOwen Smith was caught baking more than 200 pot cookies for the Victoria Cannabis Buyers Club in 2009. (CHEK)

He was acquitted in April 2012 after the B.C. Supreme Court ruled the medical marijuana regulations were unconstitutional, because patients were denied access to edible pot products and derivatives.

Justice Robert Johnston concluded that permitting dried cannabis alone was arbitrary and did little to further a legitimate state interest.

Thursday’s ruling means Smith acquittal stands and he will not be retried.

Health Minister Rona Ambrose’s office said in a statement released Thursday that it is “reviewing the decision in detail and considering our options.”

Marijuana laws under the microscope

Canada currently prohibits the possession and trafficking of all marijuana products under subsection 4(1) and Schedule II of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. However, subsection 55(1) of this act allows for exemptions to be made.

As such, an annex to that act, the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations, allow people with medical need and authorization access to medicinal marijuana.

Under these regulations, many people suffering from debilitating illnesses get marijuana through Health Canada approved companies or get permission to grow it themselves.

However, the MMPR and its predecessor, the MMAR program, limit this access to dried marijuana and do not make any other exceptions to the list of banned substances detailed in Schedule II of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.

These banned substances, aside from the exempted dried marijuana, include cannabis resin and various extracts and derivatives of the cannabis plant.

Ottawa had hoped the B.C. Court of Appeal would strike down the B.C. Supreme Court decision.

But under Thursday’s ruling, government has been asked to review these rules, which could mean medical marijuana users would be supplied with resin or extract or be permitted to make themselves products such as pot cookies using marijuana extracts.
