St. Georges Eco $SX.ca $SXOOF Altair Provides Update on Lithium Extraction and Battery Recycling Technology $NNX.ca $OM.ca $ICM.ca $ATAO

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 8:43 AM on Tuesday, January 26th, 2021
  • The two companies to jointly develop a patentable industrial scale process for Electric Vehicle Lithium-ion battery (LIB) recycling.

Altair International Corp. (the “Company” or “Altair”) (OTC: ATAO) is pleased to provide an update on its previously announced partnership with St-Georges Eco-Mining Corp. (CSE: SX) (OTC: SXOOF) (FSE: 85G1) (“St-Georges”) a Canadian public company engaged in the development of new Lithium extraction technologies.

On December 1, 2020 the two companies entered into a Binding agreement that would allow Altair access to St-Georges’ patent-pending Lithium processing technology for Altair’s Nevada based Stonewall project and most importantly bring together the two companies to jointly develop a patentable industrial scale process for Electric Vehicle Lithium-ion battery (LIB) recycling.

As the global Electric Vehicle (EV) market heats up over the coming decade, the demand for battery metals is expected to outpace current production. Even with increased energy density and charge cycles, Lithium based batteries for EVs, laptops, phones and other mobile devices will create cumulative waste challenges both in the environmental footprint of production and end-of-life LIB disposal.

Altair and St-Georges recognize that new optimized recycling technologies will offer valuable solutions to both a waste-management and battery metal supply. Selective, economic and responsible metal extraction of spent LIBs will be an integral part of the multi-billion dollar green economy and play a crucial part in the future of EV dominance of the automotive sector.

New Age Metals $NAM.ca $NMTLF Corporate Update – Year in Review & Outlook for 2021 $LIX.ca $LI.ca $WM.ca $PDL.ca $GLEN

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 8:59 AM on Tuesday, December 22nd, 2020
http://www.smallcapepicenter.com/NAM%20square.png
  • In 2020 the Company’s primary objective was to follow up on recommendations made in the 2019 River Valley Palladium Project Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA).
  • The River Valley Palladium Project is one of North America’s largest undeveloped primary Platinum Group Metal (PGM) projects. The Project has excellent infrastructure and is within 100 kilometres of the Sudbury Metallurgical Complex. The Project is 100% owned by New Age Metals.
  • The Company completed a three-phase exploration and development plan at River Valley which included drilling, environmental, and archaeological studies.
  • The Company also completed follow-up mapping and sampling programs on its Lithium One Project in Southeast Manitoba. The program was co-funded by the Manitoba Chamber of Commerce’s, Manitoba Mineral Development Fund (MMDF). In December the Company received a drill permit for its Lithium Two Project and a permit is pending for Lithium One. Further drill target definition surveys are being contemplated for 2021.
  • The Company is expecting results and corresponding press releases from both its rhodium evaluation program at River Valley and the surface sampling program from its Lithium One Project in Manitoba before the end of January 2021.
  • The spot price of an ounce of Palladium increased by over 18% in the last year, to $US2,220/oz as at December 21, 2020. Rhodium, which is also present at River Valley, has seen a price increase of over 160% year-to-date to $US16,000/ oz.
  • The Company is actively seeking an option/joint venture partner for our Genesis PGM-Cu-Ni Project in Alaska and for our Lithium division in Manitoba.

December 22, 2020 – Rockport, Canada – New Age Metals Inc. (TSXV:NAM ) | ( OTC:NMTLF ) | ( FSE:P7J) Harry Barr, Chairman & CEO, stated ; “We are pleased to provide shareholders with a year end review of our activities in 2020 and a view of our exploration and development plans for our portfolio of green metal projects in 2021.”

The Company’s primary objective this year was to follow-up on recommendations made in the 2019 River Valley Project PEA. To that end we have completed a three-phase exploration and development plan which included two rounds of drilling, initiated environmental baseline and archaeological studies, and have commenced a phase one rhodium evaluation program with the objective of including rhodium as a payable metal.

As we progress into 2021, we are focused on advancing River Valley to a Prefeasibility study. This would include recommendations to complete metallurgy, hydrogeology, geotechnical surveys, an updated mineral resource estimate, environmental baseline, infill and exploration drilling. Management is currently soliciting quotes from third party engineering firms with the objective of completing a final Prefeasibility budget by the end of February 2021. Subject to the completion of additional funding we plan to initiate this study by the third quarter of 2021 and our objective is to complete the Prefeasibility study by the end of the first quarter of 2022.

Genesis PGM-Cu-Ni Project

The Genesis PGM-Cu-Ni Project is an under explored, highly prospective drill ready property. In 2020 NAM’s management continued to seek an option/joint-venture partner for this road accessible PGM-Cu-Ni Project using the Prospector Generator business model. COVID-19 disrupted property visits which in turn hindered any finalization of a potential option / joint venture deal. The Company paid for all holding costs in 2020 and the project remains in good standing. The stable land status, ease of access and superb infrastructure make this project prospective for year-around exploration, and development.

2020 Exploration and 2021 Plans for Lithium Division

The Company has several Lithium and Rare Element Projects in the Winnipeg River Pegmatite Field, located in South East Manitoba and situated around the Tanco Mine. The world-class Tanco Pegmatite is a highly fractionated lithium-cesium-tantalum (LCT)–type pegmatite that has historically been mined (Tanco Mine) since 1969 for Li, Ta, Cs, Rb and Be ores. The Tanco Pegmatite is a very rich tantalum and cesium deposit with it being the world’s most significant and richest known source of cesium representing more than two-thirds of the world’s reserve.

In 2020, the company conducted a follow-up round of surface exploration work on its Lithium One Project to generate future drill targets. This program was co-funded by a grant from Manitoba Chamber of Commerce’s, Manitoba Mineral Development Fund (MMDF). Over 80 samples have been sent to a laboratory in Saskatchewan and results are expected in January. Samples from a previous work program on the project were taken from the Silverleaf and Annie pegmatites and not only returned significant Li20 assays of up to 4.1% but heightened levels of Rubidium Oxide (Rb2O).

Management plans to make a second application for a grant from the MMDF in 2021. In December 2020 the Company received a drill permit for its Lithium Two Project and the application for a permit on Lithium One was submitted to the Manitoba government. The Company continues to solicit potential option/joint venture partner(s) to continue the development of its Lithium division.

Iconic $ICM.ca Receives Core Drilling Geochemistry for Bonnie Claire #Lithium Project, Nevada $NRM.ca $CYP.ca $LI.ca $ALB $LAC.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 3:08 PM on Friday, October 30th, 2020
  • Received geochemical results for sediments from two core holes at the Bonnie Claire Lithium Deposit in Nevada
  • Both drill holes contain intercepts of +1,000 ppm lithium and continue to show that results are consistent with those from prior drilling
  • Core hole BC2001C intersected 67 meters (220 feet) averaging 1209 ppm Li and contained a high of 1710 ppm Li. Core hole BC2002C contained a high of 1070 ppm Li

Vancouver, British Columbia–(October 30, 2020) – Iconic Minerals Ltd. (TSXV: ICM) (OTC Pink: BVTEF) (FSE: YQGB) (“Company” or “Iconic”) is pleased to announce that it has received geochemical results for sediments from two core holes at the Bonnie Claire Lithium Deposit in Nevada. Both drill holes contain intercepts of +1,000 ppm lithium and continue to show that results are consistent with those from prior drilling. Sediment geochemical analysis was done by ALS Chemex of Reno, Nevada.

Core hole BC2001C intersected 67 meters (220 feet) averaging 1209 ppm Li and contained a high of 1710 ppm Li. Core hole BC2002C contained a high of 1070 ppm Li. Occasional lighter colored sediments seen in the core may indicate some leaching of soluble elements is occurring. Water samples, highly diluted by added drill water, were taken from each core hole. The water samples were analyzed for dissolved lithium by Western Environmental Testing of Sparks, Nevada. Of the four samples taken the high for dissolved lithium was 38 ppm. The highest water sample taken in all of Iconic’s previous drilling at Bonnie Claire, with the exception of one non-repeatable sample, was 4.1 ppm Li. As a result of these encouraging results the water sampling was also taken in the RC drilling program. These samples were taken at rod changes after clearing the hole of drill water.

The RC (reverse circulation) drilling has now been completed. A total of four holes ranging from 61 to 109 meters (200 to 358 feet) were drilled to expand the resource and collect samples for metallurgy. Samples have been sent for testing to ALS Chemex of Reno Nevada for assaying. The drilling extended the current resource approximately 2,500 meters (8,200 feet) to the south.

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.

About Iceland

Iceland climate, location, access and infrastructure (Histed,R,2010)

Located in the North Atlantic, approximately midway between Greenland and Great Britain, the warm North Atlantic Current ensures that the climate in Iceland, described as subpolar, oceanic, has generally higher temperatures than locations of similar latitude throughout the world. Regions or places that have similar climate are Tierra del Fuego, the Aleutian Islands and Alaskan Peninsula. Although Iceland lies close to the Arctic, its coasts remain ice-free year-round.

As can be expected, the southern coast is generally warmer, wetter and windier than the northern coast. The lower-lying, inland areas in the north are the most arid, although snowfall in the north during the winter months is greater than in the south.

Historically, recorded temperature extremes for the country are 30.5 C and -38.0C. The high in Reykjavik was 26.2C in 2008, and the low there was -24.5C in 1918. Although the Icelandic climate can be harsh, the GI-Melmi JV completed a drilling program at Thormodsdalur (Thor Gold Project) from November 2005 through May 2006 without undue difficulty. In the north, the increased snowfall would make an effort such as this more difficult. Reconnaissance is to be limited to the summer months.

Iceland’s infrastructure is well developed and modern. Road construction was begun around the start of the 20th century and peaked during the 1980’s. The roads are well constructed and maintained asphalt, although some gravel roads are still found. The current road system connects most of the larger towns and villages and is mostly confined to the coastal areas. Currently, there are a total of 12,691 kilometers of roads in Iceland that includes 3,262 kilometers of paved surface. Inland road access diminishes to dirt roads to no roads making access to some areas difficult, requiring foot travel or helicopter support. There are no railroads in Iceland.

Geological Setting

Iceland occurs at the junction of two large physical structures; the Mid Atlantic Ridge and the Greenland-Iceland-Faeroes Ridge (Figure 9). At this intersection, the mantle is hotter and less dense than the surrounding mantle. The mantle material rises as a result of heat and chemical-related density differences resulting in a dome in the crust above. This hotspot is causing a higher rate of extrusive volcanism at this point on the Mid Atlantic Ridge, which has, in turn, caused the region to be built up to a level more than 3 kilometers above the surrounding seafloor and covers an area of more than 350,000 km2. This is known as the Iceland Basalt Plateau. The portion of the plateau above sea level is now the country of Iceland (Martin, et al., 2007).

Tectonic Setting

In the Mid Atlantic Rift environment, the central portions of Iceland have moved outwards, away from the zones of active rifting and crustal development such that oldest rocks occur towards the margins and youngest in the center. Due to the migration of the hotspot to the south-east with time, an asymmetry has been imparted to the shape of the island. Currently, the hotspot lies under the south-eastern quadrant of the island (Corbett, 2004). This area now denotes the zone of active rifting and volcanism. Figure 10 shows the geology of Iceland defined by tectonic zones that coincide with the ages of the rocks.

Principal Tectonic Zones

The significant rift systems that have focused volcanism through time are noted below.

  • – The Snaefellsnes-Skagi Rift Zone in western Iceland was active in the 16-6.5 m.y. period. – The Reykjanes-Langjokull Rift Zone in central western Iceland resulted in the development of the Reykjanes Peninsula from about 6 my. – The North Volcanic Rift Zone became active from 3-4 my and extends to the present time. – An Eastern Volcanic Rift Zone is developing at this time.

Significant quantities of felsic intrusive and extrusive rocks occur in the dominantly basaltic sequence, and the felsic rocks locally display gold-anomalous hydrothermal alteration (Corbett, 2004).

Structurally, NE fractures reflect the spreading centre direction and are, therefore, some of the most numerous and laterally extensive fracture patterns, commonly evident as normal faults that may be exploited by dykes. NS and ENE fractures are developed as conjugate fractures during the NW-SE extension.

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.

St-Georges Eco-Mining $SX.ca $SXOOF: First Hole Completed at Thor Gold Project $NNX.ca $OM.ca $ICM.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:10 AM on Tuesday, September 15th, 2020
  • Completed its first reverse circulation drill hole at the Thor project in the vicinity of Reykjavik in Iceland
  • The hole was positioned to test a previous surface sample that assayed 37.4 g/t gold and 69.3 g/t silver
  • The hole was successfully ended at 124 meters

Reykjavik – September 15, 2020 – St-Georges Eco-Mining Corp. (CSE:SX) (CNSX:SX.CN) (OTC:SXOOF) (FSE:85G1) is pleased to disclose that it has completed its first reverse circulation drill hole at the Thor project in the vicinity of Reykjavik in Iceland. The hole was positioned to test a previous surface sample that assayed 37.4 g/t gold and 69.3 g/t silver. The hole was successfully ended at 124 meters.

The exploration team lead by Pr Helen Salmon and supported by Herb Duerr and lead field geologist Gary McLearn, had identified earlier in August a new target zone outside the historically explored area following the grab sample results from sample 008 that yielded 69.3 g/t silver, 0.216% Copper & 37.4 g/t Gold. (See Company’s Press Release from August 21, 2020).

Because of high grades in past mining and the presence of visible gold in past work, a decision to sample the hole on 30 cm intervals was made by management. Our contract geologist may have observed visible grains of gold and possible accessory silver minerals near the bottom of the hole. As such, management has decided to do a standard 50 assay ton fire assay with atomic absorption finish for both gold and silver. Any samples assaying over 0.8 g/t gold will be automatically reassayed. If the samples are inconsistent, the lab will be instructed to do metal screening for particulate gold on reject material.

The current surface exploration campaign conducted one drill hole via reverse circulation using a standard hammer drill bit of 5.5 inches (~14 cm) in size. The drilling was conducted under the constant supervision of the Company’s field geologist, and all the material of every 30cm of depth was collected in plastic buckets sealed, identified with a code, and carried to St-Georges’ secure warehousing facilities in Reykjavik. From there, the geologists will prepare a representative sample for every bucket. Based on the visual analysis conducted while logging the material so far, the Company expects to send over 400 samples to be assayed to ALS Global Laboratories (ISO/IEC 17025 accredited) in Loughrea, Ireland. The Company intends to request a rush treatment for the assay of these samples.

The hole completed went from surface to a depth of 124 meters on an azimuth of 110 degrees. The drill rig cased the hole to 2 meters depth encountering approximately 1.5 meters of overburden at the surface. The mineralization encountered is compatible with the type often favorable for gold on the Thor project consisting of quartz veining adjacent to basalt with apparent abundant pyrite and accessory sulphides. Visible gold and silver may have been identified in the field by the Company’s field geologist. These sections are still being logged and sampled and prepared to be sent to the laboratory. See Figures 1, 2 & 3.

St-Georges’ President & CEO, Vilhjalmur Thor Vilhjalmsson, commented: “(…) We are encouraged by the current pace of the exploration work on the Thor Gold Project. The team has worked with the constraints of the COVID-19 quarantine and additional precautions imposed by the new government regulations, and still ended-up delivering within the aggressive target dates we had put forward (…) We are particularly pleased with the field team led by Gary. We have given the team much leeway and trusted their professional expertise. Gary took a bold decision in choosing an underexplored location for the only deeper drill hole we were authorized for to date under our agreement with Melmis. For what we know so far, it was worth the risk (…) we expect to close the transaction with Melmis this month, and we will keep the drilling contractor busy for the foreseeable future on the Thor Gold Project (…)”.

About Thor Gold

The Thormodsdalur Gold Project is located about 20km east of the city center of Reykjavik and south-east of the Lake Hafravatn. The project was discovered in 1908. The property produced a gold concentrate from 1911 to 1925, which shipped to Germany for processing. Over 300 meters of tunnels explored and mined one or more quartz veins and wall rock below open cuts at the surface.

Studies between 1996 and 2013 identified the project mineralization as a low sulfidation system hosted by basic to intermediate flows of Pliocene to Miocene age. The host contains banded chalcedony and ginguro within a fault zone up to 5 meters in width. To date, the identified gold trend has a known strike length of 700 meters determined by drill intercepts. Petrographic analysis of the vein material identified gold occurring in its free form and as part of an assemblage with pyrite and chalcopyrite. Petrographic and XRD studies show an evolution of the vein system from the zeolite assemblage to quartz-adularia and lastly, to minor calcite.

Thirty-two holes have been drilled within the license area, for a total of 2439 meters. Gold values vary from less than 0.5 g/t to a maximum of 415 g/t. (These values were obtained from selected random intervals and cannot be construed to be representative of any particular thickness or overall length.) Historically, the best intercepts from the diamond drilling are 33.5m of 8.0 g/t Au (true thickness) and 5.2m of 35.4 g/t Au (true thickness).
