  • The program is being jointly funded by the Company and the new Manitoba Mineral Development Fund (MMDF) from the Manitoba Chamber of Commerce
  • The 2020 field work program will focus on follow up exploration of the company’s 2018 field reconnaissance efforts on the Lithium One Project
  • 2018 surface exploration completed on the Lithium One project yielded field samples grading up to 4.1% Li2O and 6.11% Rb2O
  • The Company has an exploration agreement in place with the Sagkeeng First Nation who the Company has engaged to work collaboratively with on completing the 2020 program at Lithium One
  • NAMs flagship project is the 100% owned River Valley Palladium Project, one of North America’s largest undeveloped primary Palladium Projects

October 6, 2020 – Rockport, Canada – New Age Metals Inc. (NAM) (TSXV:NAM ) ; ( OTC:NMTLF ) ; ( FSE:P7J) (“NAM” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the field work planned at the Company’s Lithium One Project in South east Manitoba, has begun. Harry Barr, Chairman & CEO stated; “With the help of a grant from the Manitoba Mineral Development Fund we are pleased to have our technical team and consultants in the field completing the fall program on our Lithium One Project.”

Lithium One Work Program

To complete this program, NAM plans to contract both Carey Galeschuk and Dave Owens, the Company’s consulting geologists in addition to the Twohearts Foundation, a Sagkeeng First Nations exploration service company. The fall 2020 program will include rock sampling, mapping and prospecting at the Company’s Lithium One project in the Greer Lake region. The objective of the program is to surface sample areas that have not been looked at to date at the project and further outline future drill targets.

Manitoba Mineral Development Fund

In June 2020, the Manitoba Government opened application to the MMDF which offered $20 million in funding to jump-start mineral and economic development initiatives in the north and throughout the province. The MMDF, delivered and administered by the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce, will support new economic development opportunities that capitalize on existing assets in the north and across Manitoba. Projects funded by MMDF will benefit Manitoba’s economy and local communities alike with a partnership-based approach to help grow and diversify the provincial economy together with Indigenous communities.

Manitoba COVID-19 Relief

The Company is taking advantage of relief measures put in place by the Manitoba government for mineral/mining claim holders in 2020. A one-year extension of time on all mining claims and mineral exploration licenses has been granted for claims and licences expiring prior to April 30, 2021. All of New Age Metals claims are eligible for this extension . Furthermore, the Manitoba Agriculture and Resource Development Department has extended double-assessment credits for exploration work completed in 2020. Both of these relief measures will assist the company in maintaining its land position in the Winnipeg River Pegmatite Field and the work completed at Lithium One will provide extended work credits for the Company on that project.

Lithium One Project

The project is geologically situated in the southern extension of the Bird River Greenstone Belt. The pegmatites are associated with the Greer Lake and Shatford Lake Pegmatite Group of the Cat Lake – Winnipeg River Pegmatite Field. The Winnipeg River Pegmatite Field hosts the World-Class Tanco Pegmatite which has been mined since 1969 at the Tanco Mine Site, in various capacities and for various commodities. This pegmatite field is hosted in the Archean age Bird River Greenstone Belt and into the surrounding granites.

The Silverleaf Pegmatite was historically mined in the late 1920’s for spodumene and probably represents one of the first spodumene operations in North America. The central, most economic, portion of the pegmatite is composed of lepidolite surrounded by an envelope of spodumene and quartz. The lepidolite zone outcrops as three large masses with lengths and maximum widths as follows: 23 m x 6 m (75 x 20 ft); 12 m x 4 m (40 x 12 ft); 5.5 m x 3 m (18 x 11 ft); it is also found in a westerly cut over a width of 2 m (6.5 ft). Spodumene is known to outcrop over a 334 m 2 (3600 sq ft). A quartz-spodumene crystal measuring 91 cm x 17 cm (3 ft x 7 inch) was reported near the core zone back in 1933.

Historic drilling of the Silverleaf Pegmatite from the 1950’s indicated a tabular pegmatite body dipping 30? S and extending 168 m (550 ft), while ranging in thickness from 5 to 11 m over a drilled length of 245 m.

The Company’s Phase One Exploration Program in 2018 , sampled several of the known lithium-bearing pegmatites. The purpose of the exploration program was to obtain modern-day assay analyses of the Pegmatites and to ground proof some of the historic Pegmatite locations. Numerous Pegmatites and Pegmatite swarms were not sampled in the 2018 program and will be explored during the 2020 fall program.

European Commission Adds Lithium to Critical Raw Materials List SPONSOR: St-Georges Eco-Mining $SX.ca $NNX.ca $OM.ca $ICM.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 12:48 PM on Friday, September 11th, 2020

EC reports highlighted an overlap between the location battery raw materials resources in the EU and “regions that are heavily dependent on coal or carbon-intensive industries and where battery factories are planned”. Image: EC Joint Centre for Research.

Lithium has been added to a list of raw materials deemed essential to secure supply in Europe, for the first time ever, by the European Commission.

Earlier this month the Commission presented its Action Plan on Critical Raw Materials and a “foresight study” on critical raw materials looking ahead to 2030 and 2050, as well as its updated 2020 list of materials. This list is updated every three years and identifies the raw materials that the Commission said are “most important economically and have a high supply risk”.

A statement from the EC also talked about the importance of access to certain resources to deliver the European Green Deal while preventing the shift to carbon neutrality from becoming also a shift from dependency on fossil fuels to a dependency on raw materials. This week, Members of European Parliament spoke at a webinar hosted by European energy storage industry group EASE about the vital importance of energy storage for decarbonising the continent while also ensuring security of energy supply.

The EC’s documents likewise firmly emphasised the importance of battery raw materials. While cobalt is already on that list, and lithium was added this year, the EC said it will “monitor nickel closely,” given the metal’s importance in battery production. Vanadium, used in flow batteries – as well as in steel production – is also on the 2020 list.

“A secure and sustainable supply of raw materials is a prerequisite for a resilient economy. For e-car batteries and energy storage alone, Europe will for instance need up to 18 times more lithium by 2030 and up to 60 times more by 2050,” said European Commission politician Maroš Šefčovič, who has championed the need to create battery supply chains and manufacturing capabilities in the continent.

“As our foresight shows, we cannot allow to replace current reliance on fossil fuels with dependency on critical raw materials. This has been magnified by the coronavirus disruptions in our strategic value chains.”

Šefčovič, the EC’s Vice-President for Interinstitutional Relations and Foresight, was instrumental in the creation of the European Battery Alliance, which has committed to investing billions of Euros into the manufacturing value chain on the continent over the next few years.

One of the projects to benefit from that Alliance, start-up Northvolt’s first gigafactory in Sweden, received its first processing equipment a few days ago, the company said. Now, the European Commission is set to formulate a similar Alliance for Critical Raw Materials.

Kontrol’s $KNR.ca #COVID19 Technology Prototype Receives Positive Lab Test Results $SNE $MSFT $HON $GOOGL $QCOM $SONA.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 1:33 PM on Thursday, August 27th, 2020

  • Announced that the Kontrol BioCloud fully functioning prototype was able to operate in real-time and has received positive lab test results
  • “Following lab testing, we have demonstrated that our fully operating prototype, previously announced on August 10, 2020, can detect COVID-19 specific components in air samples under a controlled experiment,” says Paul Ghezzi, Chief Executive Officer of Kontrol
  • The company has now tested both its proprietary detection chamber as announced on August 19, 2020 and its fully operating prototype
  • Following testing with the live COVID-19 virus, the Company anticipates that it will be in a position to move to commercialization and production of operating units shortly thereafter

TORONTO, ON / August 27, 2020 / Kontrol Energy Corp. (CSE:KNR)(OTCQB:KNRLF)(FSE:1K8) (“Kontrol” or “Company“) is pleased to announce that the Kontrol BioCloud (or “BioCloud“) fully functioning prototype was able to operate in real-time and has received positive lab test results.

“Following lab testing, we have demonstrated that our fully operating prototype, previously announced on August 10, 2020, can detect COVID-19 specific components in air samples under a controlled experiment,” says Paul Ghezzi, Chief Executive Officer of Kontrol. “This was a critical milestone that we achieved as it ensures the safety and operating capability of BioCloud and we can now move quickly to testing against the live aerosolized COVID-19 virus. We remain on track with achieving our specific milestones and anticipate live COVID-19 virus testing during the week of August 31.”

The controlled testing was conducted by the lab of independent consultant, Dr. David Heinrichs, PhD (Heinrichs Laboratory) – experts in the study of Microbiology and Immunology.

Next Major Milestones

The company has now tested both its proprietary detection chamber as announced on August 19, 2020 and its fully operating prototype. Following testing with the live COVID-19 virus, the Company anticipates that it will be in a position to move to commercialization and production of operating units shortly thereafter.

We continue to fund all BioCloud technology development through internal cash generation and Kontrol will not raise capital to complete testing and pre-commercialization work.

When testing against the live COVID-19 virus the Company seeks to establish the lower detection limits of BioCloud and set final parameters for applications based on room size and number of individuals. These lower detection limits will be part of commercialization specifications.

Commercialization Plans

“We are excited to have a working prototype and a successful result given all the hard work that has gone into the BioCloud,” says Gary Saunders VP of Kontrol. “We have sourced all the components required for commercialization and have our supply chain ready to go. The Canadian Government has recently announced $2 billion in federal funding to help schools reopen safely. BioCloud has the potential to be an important tool in creating safe spaces by seeking to detect for the virus and assessing the effectiveness of HVAC system improvements by continuously sampling air in real-time.”

The Company anticipates a selling price in the range of $12,000 US per BioCloud unit based on the current supply chain components. The detection chamber is replaceable and represents a potential secondary source of commercialized revenue for Kontrol. Any time the detection chamber comes into contact with the COVID virus it must be disposed of safely and replaced.

New Applications beyond COVID-19

During testing the Company has determined that BioCloud has the capability to detect other airborne viruses in addition to COVID-19. This determination was made based on working with the independent lab consultants and a review of the detection mechanism and specifications. While COVID-19 is the most pressing concern for creating safe spaces, other airborne viruses may have similar characteristics that BioCloud may be able to detect.

About Kontrol BioCloud

BioCloud is a real-time analyzer designed to detect airborne viruses. It has been designed to operate as a safe space technology by sampling the air quality over time. With a proprietary detection chamber that can be replaced as needed, viruses are detected, and an alert system is created in the Cloud or over local intranet. BioCloud has been designed for spaces where individuals gather including classrooms, retirement homes, hospitals, mass transportation and others. It can be an important technology which supports the entire system of individual testing and contact tracing.

The Company is not making any express or implied claims that its product has the ability to eliminate, cure or contain the COVID-19 (or SARS-2 Coronavirus) at this time.

TORONTO, ON / August 19, 2020 / Kontrol Energy Corp. (CSE:KNR)(OTCQB:KNRLF)(FSE:1K8) (“Kontrol” or “Company“) is pleased to provide an update on the timing of the next stage of testing for the Kontrol BioCloud® analyzer (“BioCloud“).

For more than a decade, through its operating subsidiaries, Kontrol has been providing air quality testing and continuous emission monitoring across hundreds of industrial facilities in Canada and the USA. BioCloud represents an extension and further innovation of an existing air quality technology and solution platform which Kontrol currently provides to its customers.

“We are drawing on our extensive experience in air quality and emission monitoring for specific particulate analysis and measurement and using similar technology to detect for COVID-19 in the air,” says Paul Ghezzi, CEO of Kontrol. “Over the past 6 months, we have secured government funding, established partnerships with virology experts, and developed a proprietary COVID-19 detection chamber. Our initial lab results and interest from potential customers and prospects give us the confidence that we are developing a solution which the market demands. We look forward to providing more details as we continue BioCloud’s development.”

Next Stage of Testing

Live COVID-19 virus testing will commence on August 19th, 2020 and is expected to continue until the end of the month. The testing will focus on the capability of the working BioCloud prototype to sample the COVID-19 virus in aerosol form and seek to establish the lower detection limits that can be achieved. Kontrol will publish the results following the testing.

Detection Mechanism

Kontrol has designed BioCloud with a replaceable detection mechanism. Kontrol will seek to patent the detection mechanism following the next stage of testing. Kontrol will also analyze the best method of replacing and disposing of the detection mechanism after it comes into contact with COVID-19. The detection mechanism has been built to be an ongoing replaceable component of the BioCloud technology.

“BioCloud will seek to sample the air over-time on a continuous basis, which is similar to how we currently test for air quality in industrial facilities. Applications for BioCloud will be focused initially on classrooms, hospitals, long-term care homes, and mass transportation.” said Gary Saunders, Kontrol’s Vice President.

Pre-Commercialization Prototypes

Kontrol has built one operating prototype and is in the process of completing four additional pre-commercialization prototypes. These prototypes will be made available for lab testing and also provide Kontrol with greater certainty for developing its supply chain for parts and materials for potential future commercialization. The additional four prototypes will be completed prior to August 31st, 2020.

The Company is not making any express or implied claims that its product has the ability to eliminate, cure or contain the Covid-19 (or SARS-2 Coronavirus) at this time.

Iconic $ICM.ca Initiates Drilling Program at Bonnie Claire Lithium Project, Nevada $LI.ca $MGG.ca $PAC.ca $CYP.ca $NEV.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:12 AM on Tuesday, August 11th, 2020
  • Announced that it has mobilized a drill crew and drilling equipment to the Bonnie Claire Lithium Deposit in Nevada
  • Exploration program will consist of 3-5 vertical reverse circulation (RC) holes 90-120 meters (300-400 feet) in depth and 2 vertical core holes 90-120 meters (300-400 feet) in depth

Vancouver, British Columbia–(August 11, 2020) – Iconic Minerals Ltd. (TSXV: ICM) (OTC Pink: BVTEF) (FSE: YQGB) (“Company” or “Iconic”) is pleased to announce that it has mobilized a drill crew and drilling equipment to the Bonnie Claire Lithium Deposit in Nevada. The drilling contract was signed with Harris Exploration Drilling of Fallon, Nevada, for both core and RC drilling.

The exploration program will consist of 3-5 vertical reverse circulation (RC) holes 90-120 meters (300-400 feet) in depth and 2 vertical core holes 90-120 meters (300-400 feet) in depth (the “Drill Holes”). The RC drilling will provide additional samples for metallurgical testing as well as expand the existing resource. The core holes will be the first drilled on the Bonnie Claire Project, and will be used in engineering studies for a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA).

All of the planned Drill Holes are south of Iconic’s previous deep drilling (BC1601-1801) in an area of linear lithium anomalies found by surface grid sampling. It is hoped that the sediment hosted lithium will begin very shallow in this area which may allow for future bulk sampling using an excavator. In past drilling the shallowest depth of lithium rich sediments that was intercepted was at 6 meters (20 feet) and contained +600 ppm Li, which increased at depth with Li values up to 2250ppm. In addition to collecting the sediments for testing, because the surface anomalies may indicate near-surface lithium brine, preliminary semi-quantitative brine samples will also be taken from all holes during drilling.

The Bonnie Claire Lithium Property Characteristics:

The Property is located within Sarcobatus Valley that is approximately 30 km (19 miles) long and 20 km (12 miles) wide. Quartz-rich volcanic tuffs, that contain anomalous amounts of lithium, occur within and adjacent to the valley. Geochemical analysis of the local salt flats has yielded lithium values up to 340 ppm. The gravity low within the valley is 20 km (12 miles) long, and the current estimates of depth to basement rocks range from 600 to 1,200 meters (2,000 to 4,000 feet). The current claim block covers an area of 35 km2 (13.5 mi2) with potential to be underlain by lithium-rich sediments.

  • This part of the ongoing testing is anticipated to be completed in the next two to three weeks

TORONTO, ON / August 10, 2020 / Kontrol Energy Corp. (CSE:KNR)(OTCQB:KNRLF)(FSE:1K8) (“Kontrol” or “Company“) is pleased to announce that the detection mechanism of the Kontrol BioCloud® analyzer (“BioCloud“), has received initial positive lab results.

Can we measure for COVID-19 like we do for air quality?

Drawing from its extensive industry experience in air emissions and air quality monitoring, Kontrol is developing a new technology designed to detect and alert for COVID-19 in real-time, through rapid on-site air sampling and detection of aerosol and droplet encapsulated viruses in indoor and outdoor environments.

“We are pleased to announce that our detection mechanism, previously announced on August 5th, 2020, has completed its initial proof of concept test results. We have now validated that our detection mechanism can detect COVID-19 specific components in air samples under a controlled experiment,” says Paul Ghezzi, Chief Executive Officer of Kontrol. “The controlled testing was conducted by independent consultants, Dr. David Heinrichs, PhD (Heinrichs Laboratory), and Dr. Jimmy Dikeakos, PhD (Dikeakos Laboratory) – experts in the study of Microbiology and Immunology.”

Next Stage of Testing

The initial testing was designed to validate the function of the detection mechanism. The testing was limited to a controlled environment with the detection mechanism, and not the complete operation of the BioCloud analyzer.

The next stage of testing will be with the live COVID-19 virus in a controlled environment and the BioCloud prototype operating in real-time. This part of the ongoing testing is anticipated to be completed in the next two to three weeks. It is important to note that Kontrol is not making any representations about the operation of the BioCloud analyzer at this time. Following the testing of the BioCloud analyzer in real-time the lab results will be announced, and a final report will be prepared for the National Research Council of Canada for their review.

“As we continue testing, we have also started the process of establishing procurement and supply chain solutions for the potential production of the BioCloud and we remain in discussions with the National Research Council of Canada for their continued support,” says Gary Saunders, VP of Kontrol. “Given the urgency of creating safe spaces as the economy re-opens, we are working around the clock to move our technology forward and we appreciate the efforts of our team.”

If Google NEST is the leader in smart home technology, then Kontrol Energy (KNR:CSE) is the small cap equivalent for smart building technology.  More than just lip service, their established Blue Chip customer base includes:

  • Beyond Meat
  • Oxford Properties
  • Brookfield Asset Management
  • Telus
  • Suncor Energy
  • ….. Many More

Moreover, they’ve signed a major deal wth Toyota (Tsusho Canada), targeting 200 plants requiring up to $1 million each in automation retrofits.

CONCLUSION?  When Kontrol Energy says they are entering a 4-week testing phase – with an independent lab – to determine if their technology can detect COVID-19 in the air of big buildings, you need to take the news seriously.  You know who else took it seriously?  The National Research Council, who granted Kontrol $50,000 to conduct the test.  The amount may seem small but that’s because KNR has already done most of the leg work already and is now in the final 4-week testing phase.  

If successful, the implications could be enormous for their Tier-1 client base, as well as, all commercial buildings, government buildings, schools and other big essential locations that need to find a way to start bringing people back.  In short, Kontrol Energy’s BioCloud Analyzer could have a major impact on the North American economy.

“Our team has been working to bring BioCloud to market since the onset of COVID-19 and we see a great need for a technology which can provide a level of assurance that spaces where individuals work and congregate can be safe,” says Paul Ghezzi, Chief Executive Officer of Kontrol. “If successful, BioCloud will be able to provide pro-active virus detection capabilities with an alert and notification system in public settings and to help maintain confidence as economies re-open.”

COVID-19 Testing

The current focus of testing for COVID-19 has been individual swabs. While this remains an important part of the testing regime it would not be possible to test all individuals daily in the cases of large gatherings and transportation.

According to the Center for Disease Control, “the virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person to person, mainly through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. COVID-19 seems to be spreading easily and sustainably in the community (“community spread”).Community spread means people have been infected with the virus in an area, including some who are not sure how or where they became infected.”

BioCloud has been designed to operate in open spaces where crowds gather or congregate. Through constant air sampling over designated intervals of time and a propriety detection chamber, designed to interact with COVID-19, BioCloud seeks to provide a real-time detection and alert system. BioCloud’s anticipated applications include schools, buildings, hospitals, transportation, or any location where crowds are gathered.

“When we initiated the design of BioCloud we leveraged our extensive experience in sampling for low level particulate matter in industrial facilities which includes air quality, emissions and various gases,” says Gary Saunders, VP of Kontrol. “We appreciate the government support received to date to accelerate the development of BioCloud.”

Development Plan

Kontrol has developed its initial prototype and has commenced lab testing of the detection chamber. The lab will spend the next 4 weeks testing the detection chamber and the applicable interactions with COVID-19. Following the testing period, Kontrol will announce the results and provide further details on its go to market strategy.

Kontrol is not making any express or implied claims that its BioCloud analyzer has the ability to measure or detect COVID-19 at this time.
