LBSR: Charts signal copper is about to make a powerful move $LBSR.us

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 12:37 PM on Saturday, February 18th, 2017
  • Copper is often used as a barometer for the health of the global economy.
  • Naturally, Jim Cramer’s interest was naturally piqued when the red metal made a big breakout to the upside recently.

“Copper’s strength is part of the traditional metrics that define economic growth and it can be a part of the rational justification for what so many believe is an irrational rally,” the “Mad Money” host said.

When demand for copper increases, that means industrial activity is on the rise because copper is used to make a wide array of things from new factories, to new houses and automobiles.
However, Cramer did note that he doesn’t know if demand has increased because there have been major production cuts, which could signal the jump is supply driven rather than due to stronger demand.


To get the real deal on what the charts predict for the future of copper, Cramer spoke with technician Ed Ponsi, who is the managing director of Barchetta Capital Management and colleague at RealMoney.com.

With copper at a 12-month high and major stock indices at all-time highs, Ponsi found that history tends to make powerful moves when both stocks and copper move together.
“It is not a crystal ball. However, those who ignore history are doomed not to profit from it, so it would be a mistake to ignore copper’s latest move,” Cramer said.

What the market really loves is increased demand for copper, and most factors seem to be supply related, unfortunately. Workers are on strike at BHP Billiton‘s Escondida mine in Chile, the largest copper mine in the world. Freeport-McMoRan also cut production at its Grasberg copper mine, the third largest in the world.

However, there was one element that Ponsi thinks could be very bullish. China consumes nearly 50 percent of the world’s copper, so when its economy is on the rise, the price of copper tends to soar.

Looking at the weekly chart of copper going back to 2008, from the bottom in 2009 to the peak near 2011, the price of copper nearly tripled. Ponsi noted this was largely driven by China.

For the first time in years, there are bullish signals coming from China’s economy, as according to last week’s positive trade balance figures, exports are up 7.9 percent in January and imports up 16.7 percent.

Ponsi thinks the strength in copper could be great news for both the global economy and for U.S. stocks in particular.

“I am still a bit skeptical because if copper is only rallying because of tighter supply … then that is a lot less significant for economies around the globe,” Cramer said.

However, by traditional measures of economic strength, copper’s rally could mean good things for the future of the stock market.

Liberty Star’s CEO James A. Briscoe Updates the Hay Mountain Project $LBSR.us

  • Drillers are on standby and the necessary paperwork is in hand
  • Company wants to get to Hay Mountain Drill Target One ASAP

TUCSON, AZ–(June 23, 2016) – Liberty Star Uranium & Metals Corp. (“Liberty Star” or the “Company”) (OTCBB: LBSR) (OTC PINK: LBSR) is pleased to announce that Company CEO/Chief Geologist James A. Briscoe summarized exploration activity at the Hay Mountain Project over the weekend. The “Update on the Hay Mountain Project” was originally posted on the Liberty Star website on June 18 and shared on Agoracom.com that day.

Comments Mr. Briscoe: “While nothing in the update is brand new, it summarizes what we have found using well-established practices and new technologies in mining exploration. Our methodology offers reaffirming conclusions through different practices. In other words, we started with geochem as a baseline for finding targets which was confirmed and refined through geology, geophysics (ZTEM) and surface x-ray fluorescence (XRF instrumentation). It is my hope that the update clarifies our methodologies and conclusions. To that end, included in this summary are Internet links to various data that can also be found on our web site.

From CEO James A. Briscoe: Update on the Hay Mountain Project (Published June 18, 2016)

This is an exciting time for Liberty Star. I am ready, our field manager, Jay Crawford, is ready, the drillers are on standby and the necessary paperwork is in hand. We want to get to Hay Mountain Drill Target One ASAP.

As we have stated in numerous public reports, the data from geochem, geophysics and fieldwork with x-ray fluorescence for the Hay Mountain Project has been gathered and analyzed by me and other geosciences experts. I want to summarize and explain in simple terms what we have found and have reported previously:

  1. A viable target is indicated by our multiple geoscientific studies from the air and on the ground. This has been verified by independent geoscientists and follows the Lowell-Guilbert porphyry copper model.
  2. The presence of silicification and brecciated (broken) silicified limestone with leached capping, as well as breccia pipes with fluidized rounded clasts (fragments), characteristic of all porphyry coppers, but were unknown to the area prior to our fieldwork in the fall of 2015. These outcrops are occurring in the main porphyry copper alteration zone mapped according to the geochemical and geophysical studies.
  3. As recently as October/November 2015, field work with an x-ray fluorescence instrument (Niton XL3t Goldd+ XRF Analyzer from Thermo Fisher Scientific) has found high grade pods of copper oxide (malachite) emanating from oxidized chalcopyrite (“Recent Field Work at Hay Mtn Project,” 09/24/2015), which is the normal copper sulfide mineral in porphyry copper bodies in this region over the area where previously derived geochemical highs exist. Such surface covers about two linear miles where there is outcrop.
  4. We believe this disseminated copper is actually the top of the porphyry copper mineral body as detected by geochem and geophysics — and the geophysics trace it downward to approximately 6,000 feet below the current surface. We interpret it is the low-grade upper part of our target that is outcropping.
  5. Gold — Because the Lowell-Guilbert porphyry copper model was tested and verified on numerous porphyry copper deposits throughout the world, we know the center metals of the model and our terrain under study include iron (magnetite), potassium (as potassium feldspar) gold, and moly. Other disseminated metal rings form around the center. The following must be tested to be confirmed:
    1. We see the moly, lead and gold geochem values in vegetation at the porphyry center. It is possible the gold in the center could be occurring at the surface either as submicron (Carlin-style) or finely disseminated, but not submicron.
    2. Thus, gold could be minable at and/or near the surface and processed by heap leaching or other standard processes.

Because this is a hypothesis, it needs to be tested by drilling and sampling. This will be done, at least in part, by our planned drilling program. We have not yet ascertained whether the Hay Mountain land package possesses commercially viable deposits of copper, molybdenum, gold, silver, lead, zinc, manganese and other metals including rare earth elements, uranium and thorium but data to date suggests it does. We have not identified any ore reserves to date. We have no way of finding out any of this without drilling.”

Hay Mountain Project: Drill Holes Selected for Drilling on Two Outcrops Showing High Grade Copper

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 2:56 PM on Wednesday, October 14th, 2015

  • Encouraging results will dictate another nine drill holes, resulting in a line of 11 bisecting the main porphyry anomaly in an east–west direction
  • Recent detailed mapping found pervasively brecciated limestone, which led to the conclusion that the area called the Chrysocolla Block (where the first discovery of oxide copper in outcrop was made) was misidentified as the Colina limestone

Liberty Star Uranium & Metals Corp. (“Liberty Star” or the “Company”) (OTCQB: LBSR) is pleased to announce that very high grade copper oxide outcrops near the geochemical high derived from vegetation sampling have been discovered. These show up to 22% copper.

Recent detailed mapping found pervasively brecciated limestone, which led to the conclusion that the area called the Chrysocolla Block (where the first discovery of oxide copper in outcrop was made) was misidentified as the Colina limestone. Further evaluation led to the conclusion that the zone was of the lower Earp formation, which is the layer directly below the Colina. A red clay marker bed at the base of the exposed Earp limestone breccia clearly identifies it, but had been inexplicably missed by previous geologists. Current understanding indicates that the latest targets may bloom into major mineral zones 200 to 400 feet in depth at their intersection with the Horquilla limestone, the major mineral host in the region.

After ID of the lower part of the Earp, the Company’s skarn consultant (recently working on another Arizona project in the same sedimentary rocks, containing high grade copper) felt that there was a strong possibility that the two high grade copper oxide outcrops could be positioned right above high grade copper mineralization. This opinion correlates with Liberty Star’s geophysical–geochemical cross sections: see graphics.

Company CEO/Chief Geologist James A. Briscoe notes: “This is the specific target we have been searching for before kicking off a drill program. This development of discovery by use of the Niton and lots of boots on the ground carefully observing rocks gave us this completely unexpected outcrop; we have made the breakthrough we needed. This find is exciting and meaningful because it is the largest exposure so far located at Hay Mountain, and is similar to outcrops in the Bisbee mining district 15 miles south.”

Briscoe continues: “This outcropping oxidized mineral occurrence, taken with our recent work, confirms increasing mineral intensity over the previous geochemical and geophysical anomalies, and is confirmation of the type of mineralization we wanted to find. We have much technical work, including drilling, to complete prior to declaring an ore body present at Hay Mountain, but until now we were working with indirect geochemical, geophysical and geologic interpretation; this is direct evidence.”

Drilling Planned-Permitting Underway

Two drill holes 600’ apart have been spotted over the two sites of the gossan outcrops. Work on nine other targets across the heart of the geochemical-geophysical anomaly is underway. The flexible drill plan calls for vertical diamond core holes to as deep as 2,000 feet. If horizontal bedded ore grade copper or other metals are intercepted, 45 degree angle holes will be drilled to determine width, thickness and shape of the mineralization. Contorted, broken and brecciated beds are nearby and along the line of holes, which is characteristic of the porphyry copper geologic environment. “This is a good environment for defining out an important ore body,” comments Briscoe.

Plans call for holes up to 2,000 feet deep but could be shallower. Each hole would take about 20 days to drill and cost about $200,000 if drilled to total depth: estimated start time of about January 2016.

Forward-Looking Statements

Statements in this news release that are not historical are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements include: findings led to the conclusion that the Chrysocolla Block was misidentified and the conclusion that the zone was of the lower Earp formation that the discovery constitutes the specific target we have been searching for before kicking off a drill program. Factors which may delay or prevent these forward-looking statements from being realized include: our inability to raise sufficient funds to complete our intended exploration or carry on operations; an inability to continue exploration due to weather, logistical problems or hazards even if funds are available. Readers should refer to the risk disclosures in the Company’s recent 10-K and the Company’s other periodic reports filed from time to time with the SEC.
