Stria Lithium Announces Funding Commitment from the Government of Canada

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 10:17 AM on Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

 

Innovation Funding Commitment to assist in the Company’s Development of Novel, Environmentally Sustainable Lithium Processing Technologies

 

OTTAWA, ONTARIO–(Nov. 12, 2014) - Stria Lithium Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SRA) (“Stria” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has received a funding commitment of up to $137,700 from the Government of Canada through the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP) in support of the Company’s continuing development of novel lithium processing technologies aimed at producing low-cost, very high purity lithium products.

Stria Lithium is advancing development of proprietary spodumene mineralization to lithium concentrate processing technologies capable of producing a low cost high-grade Li-metal, Li-carbonate and Li-hydroxide products.

On October 17, 2014, the Company announced it had completed a dense media separation study (“DMS”) with SGS Canada Ltd., demonstrating the mineralogical quality and viability for purification of spodumene mineralization from its 100% owned Pontax Lithium Project, Northern Quebec.

The mineralization will be used to feed Stria’s pilot plant located in Kingston, Ontario, scheduled for startup in early 2015.

Stria President and Chief Operating Officer Julien Davy said: “The federal government’s commitment of financial support bodes well for us in meeting our planned future production milestones, beginning with our pilot plant in Kingston. We are extremely grateful for NRC-IRAP’s business and technical advisory services, along with financial support, at this time in our process development.”

“Battery manufacturers are looking to the resource sector to find innovative solutions to lower production costs.

“Our decision to build our business on the development of new, proprietary processing technologies has attracted industry attention,” Mr. Davy added. “We believe our technologies hold the prospect of resolving not only cost and purity issues, but also, an industry imperative to do so on an environmentally sustainable basis.”

Stria’s aim is to license its potential technologies to electric vehicle and large-scale industrial energy storage battery manufacturers.

“Being able to ‘walk the talk,’ environmentally speaking,” Mr. Davy said, “is critical to our future success in the lithium industry.”

About Stria Lithium Inc.

Stria Lithium (TSX VENTURE:SRA) is a Mining Technology company that owns the Pontax spodumene lithium property in Northern Quebec and the Willcox brine lithium property in southeastern Arizona. As announced in January 2014, Stria is developing proprietary, in-house processing technologies for both projects with the purpose of reducing processing costs on an environmentally sustainable basis.

Stria’s technologies, based on recovering lithium metal directly from mineralization and from brine liquids, will be more efficient, will require fewer controls, less chemistry and require less energy from compact facilities designed to enable easy automation.

Liberty Star Announces, New Wholly Owned Subsidiary Hay Mountain Super Project LLC, Potential Funder Site Visit and Agreement on North Pipes Super Project Lease Option

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:39 AM on Monday, November 10th, 2014

TUCSON, Ariz.–Liberty Star Uranium & Metals Corp. (“Liberty Star” or the “Company”) (OTCQB: LBSR) is pleased to announce progress on various matters:

Liberty Star is moving forward to capitalize on the hard work it has expended over a number of years. We have a very positive outlook about our future as a result of these recent and ongoing developments.”

1. The Company has filed Articles of Organization with the Arizona Corporation Commission forming a wholly owned subsidiary named Hay Mountain Super Project LLC (“HMSP LLC” or the “Subsidiary”). The new Subsidiary is to manage Liberty Star’s premiere multi-target exploration property, the Hay Mountain Project, in southeast Arizona’s historic Tombstone mining district (Cochise County) for porphyry copper, gold, moly, silver, REEs and other associated metals. HMSP LLC will serve as the primary holding company for development of the potential ore bodies encompassed in the Hay Mountain area of interest covering some 42 square miles as identified by the extensive geological, geochemical and geophysical work, including ZTEM, performed to date. This is the first step toward establishing a corporate structure that will maximize operational and tax efficiencies, and enable the transfer of profits to Liberty Star Uranium & Metals Corp. where tax loss carry forwards can be used against positive cash flow, if any, from previous exploration expenses, while at the same time preserve the flexibility to engage joint enterprise investors in the independent development of multiple Hay Mountain targets as drilling verifies their candidacy as potential economically viable mining operations. Funding and management of the Hay Mountain Project and other Liberty Star surface studied and/or claimed lands totaling 42 square miles in the area will be administered through the Subsidiary.

Comments Jim Briscoe, Liberty Star’s CEO and Chief Geologist: “This progress toward assembling the corporate machinery forming the basis for attracting and engaging qualified joint enterprise investors to participate in developing the potentially extraordinary mineral content of the Hay Mountain properties, as documented in prior Liberty Star press releases, is a milestone event in Liberty Star’s growth. I am pleased and excited with our establishing this threshold into the next phase of revealing Hay Mountain’s potential as a world class mining district.”

2. Liberty Star announces that the Company’s CEO/Chief Geologist Jim Briscoe and Director (mining engineer-attorney) Brett Gross will host a three day visit including a two day site visit to the Hay Mountain Project area for a potential funder from the Arabian Peninsula who has signed a non-disclosure agreement. This trip is tentatively planned before Thanksgiving, dependent only on US entry visa and travel arrangements. Accompanying the two parties will be an independent geologist/porphyry copper expert hired by the guest as well as an arms- length Registered Professional Geologist (RPG) who is experienced in a particular (classic) porphyry copper skarn deposit in the SW USA, participated in intensive postgraduate study of porphyry copper skarn deposits and has used vegetation geochemistry like that used by Liberty Star at Hay Mountain (and supervised by our Technical Board Member – and Geochemist, Shea Clark Smith) and is familiar with distal halos of the Hay Mountain type skarn mineralization. In addition to the Hay Mountain Project area, the visit will include ASARCO’s Mission Mine and the Bisbee mining district, both of which are corollaries to Hay Mountain (exposed rather than covered). The tour will also include two other similar porphyry copper drilling projects and one small porphyry copper production facility with exploration potential. During the trip in this mineral rich area there will also be viewings of dormant porphyry copper, gold and silver mines, including Tombstone itself. These sites, all within a 60 mile radius of the Hay Mountain Project, will demonstrate and solidify the similarity of other large porphyry copper operations to the as yet undrilled Hay Mountain which lies hidden beneath shallow cover. The trip will take two days and a 3rd day is reserved for a second review of the technical details of the Hay Mountain data, and discussion of Joint Venture parameters.

3. The final Archaeological Assessment document has been finished by the Company’s contractor Antigua Archaeology LLC, and was submitted to the Arizona State Land Department (ASLD) for their final approval on November 5, 2014. No significant archaeological material was found and the report recommends approval of our proposal as written. According to the ASLD, response time is dependent on the length of the queue but should take place in 30 to 90 days. This is the final step in the long approval process. When ASLD final approval is received, Liberty Star is ready to drill as soon as funding is in place.

4. The Company is getting more expressions of interest every day and expects to make additional presentation trips as described in number 2 until Phase 1 financing is attained. Currently there are three seemingly qualified entities that have expressed strong interest.

5. For more than a year, lengthy negotiations have been ongoing with Genesis Group International Inc. to option the North Pipes Super Project (uranium) which lies just south of the Utah border. Genesis has developed a unique, proprietary type of equipment and process to mining breccia pipe type vertical mineral ore bodies. The Company has executed a letter agreement subject to formal legal drafting. This will involve an exchange of Liberty Star’s real property and intellectual property pertaining to the North Pipes/ Arizona Strip properties. In exchange Liberty Star will receive a significant monthly payment toward retirement of its expenditures on the North Pipes Project. It will also receive a gross royalty (NSR – Net Smelter [mill return] Royalty type, which is common in the mineral industry) on production that would result from all metal commodities coming from any mining of the pipes. It is expected that this could commence in about six months from now, at which time full financial and state support will become available. Profitable operation of the breccia pipes even at current low uranium prices is anticipated from this rapid and unique mining equipment and approach.

Concludes Briscoe: “Liberty Star is moving forward to capitalize on the hard work it has expended over a number of years. We have a very positive outlook about our future as a result of these recent and ongoing developments.”

Forward Looking Statements

Statements in this news release that are not historical are forward looking statements. Forward-looking statements in this news release include that the Hay Mountain Project is ready for drilling once we can obtain ASLD approval and financing for phase 1 drilling; that our project is prospective for many minerals; that we will be able to attract a partner/investor for the North Pipes uranium program; that our project will be profitable; and that we can come to a final agreement with Genesis. Factors which may delay or prevent these forward-looking statements from being realized include: the failure of our proposals or our Archeological Assessment to be accepted; we may not be able to raise sufficient funds to complete our intended exploration, keep our properties or carry on operations; and an inability to continue development due to weather, logistical problems, labor or equipment problems or hazards even if funds are available. Even if our proposals are accepted, we may not be able to carry out project development as contemplated. Despite encouraging data there may be no commercially exploitable mineralization on our properties. Readers should refer to the risk disclosures in the Company’s last 10-K and the Company’s other periodic reports filed from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Garibaldi Arranges $1 Million Financing to Fast Track Drilling at High-Grade Discovery in Mexico

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:41 AM on Friday, November 7th, 2014

VANCOUVER, Nov. 7, 2014 – Garibaldi Resources Corp. (TSX.V: GGI) (the “Company” or “Garibaldi”) is pleased to announce that it has arranged a non-brokered private placement of up to 5,000,000 units of the Company at a price of $0.20 per unit (see details below) for total gross proceeds of up to $1 million. Proceeds of the financing will be used to immediately expand current drilling and exploration programs following up on a growing high-grade discovery at its 100%-owned Rodadero North Silver-Gold Project in central Sonora State, Mexico, and for general working capital purposes.

“We effectively leveraged our previous discovery in Mexico (the Temoris option) to avoid any dilution to our share structure since 2009,” commented Steve Regoci, Garibaldi President and CEO. “Our management, geological and advisory board teams now see Rodadero as an even greater opportunity than Temoris given the scale of the project, the high grades returned to date from drilling and sampling, and the near-surface nature of the silver, gold and base metal mineralization.

“We believe we’re seeing the emergence of a new mineral camp in this part of Sonora State which commands a rapid increase in the pace of drilling and exploration.

“As we continue to get very encouraging signs from ongoing drilling at Silver Eagle, where discovery hole SE-14-01 returned an exceptional and shallow 7-meter intercept grading 2,010 g/t Ag, we’ve also completed plans for 9 proposed drill holes at Tarichi, 2.5 km to the southeast where the exploration target is a near-surface high-grade silver and gold system. Tarichi is the second of 11 high priority areas outlined at Rodadero North over a 10-km long, 5-km wide corridor. Hyperspectral ‘hot spots’ and extensive mapping and sampling results suggest a possible structural linkage among at least some of these 11 separate targets that are each highly mineralized at surface.”

True width of the bonanza grade discovery in SE-14-01 is estimated to be approximately 80% of the reported interval (see October 23 news release for latest drilling and exploration highlights from Rodadero North).

Private Placement Details

The proposed private placement will consist of an offering of units of the Company’s securities at a price of $0.20 per unit. Each unit will contain one common share in the capital of the Company and one non-transferable share purchase warrant with each warrant entitling the holder to acquire one additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.30 for a period of two years. Finders’ fees in cash and/or securities will be payable with respect to the private placement.

The private placement is subject to acceptance for filing by the TSX Venture Exchange.

Liberty Star Updates Financing & News on the Hay Mountain Project for Porphyry Copper, Gold, Moly and Other Metals

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 12:50 PM on Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

TUCSON, Ariz.–Liberty Star Uranium & Metals Corp. (“Liberty Star” or the “Company”) (OTCQB: LBSR) is providing an update on its plans to finance the Phase 1 exploration drilling program on its premier property, the Hay Mountain Project, for porphyry copper, gold, moly and other metals in Cochise County, southeast Arizona. The Phase 1 financing requires an expenditure of USD $6.5 million to drill up to 50 vertical “mother” holes (to a depth of up to 5,000 feet) and up to eight “daughter” holes per mother hole, depending on what is encountered (News Release 189). Another 31 holes on our Federal lode mining claims adjacent to the Arizona State Mineral Exploration Permits (MEPs) have subsequently been located, bringing the total number of planned, pre-positioned, permitted holes on the grid to 81. The Company is pursuing permitting on the entire grid simultaneously, allowing movement to almost any location within the geochemical, geophysical and geologic anomalies, depending on results of surrounding holes, as soon as that may be indicated by results of the previously drilled holes. The Company may not drill all 81 holes during Phase 1, but permitting the entire grid at once is more efficient in terms of time and costs given the lengthy permitting timeline under state and federal regulation. This would allow immediate continuation of Phase 2 drilling, with no time lag.

Phase 2 drilling could continue for up to an additional three or more years with multiple drills. Discovery of thin exposures of silicified and carbonate veined rock suggests that mineralization could be located at less depth than was previously suggested by old geologic maps. This, combined with the geochemistry and ZTEM geophysics, suggests a shallower top of the mineral zone and mineralization going to significant depth. In Phase 2 and beyond, planning could be for an open pit and a continuous deep underground skarn (altered limestone) mineral body.

The financing proposal is offered to foreign and domestic entities that have or might express an interest in the project as a joint venture (JV) arrangement:

1. The JV would be between partner and The Hay Mountain Project owned by Liberty Star, and would be managed by Liberty Star.

2. Partner would provide capital of $6.5 million for the Phase 1 drilling program and have an option to contribute $65 million for the second phase of drilling. Investors would also have the right of first refusal to contribute addition funds for the final permitting, design, construction and development of a mine(s) at Hay Mountain.

3. Liberty Star is not contemplating an arrangement exchanging stock to capitalize Phase 1 exploration drilling or subsequently Phase 2, and later phases for permitting, design and construction, which would be dilutive, but instead a Joint Venture, as is common in the industry.

The Company has received and anticipates receiving additional Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) from potential funders introduced by naseba/Naru Capital and other entities, foreign and domestic. These NDAs allow Liberty Star to disclose confidential scientific data to potential funders as part of the potential funders’ due diligence programs.

States Liberty Star’s CEO/Chief Geologist James A. Briscoe: “The value of the Hay Mountain Project may be greatly enhanced with the discovery of factors that may indicate mineralization near the surface, in addition to a continuation of a skarn mineral body to great depth, which would be mined by underground methods. We have completed surface studies, and have scheduled due diligence visits to the site. We have received word from the Arizona State Land Department (ASLD) that our Plan of Operation with archaeology survey should be completed in one to three months, entirely dependent on their schedule. In effect, we are ready to get the diamond core drilling started. While I wish the process of financing Phase 1 drilling at Hay Mountain would quicken its pace, I am confident that the scientific data and the attractive JV proposal we have put forth will net us a suitable partner in due course.”

Forward-Looking Statements

Statements in this news release that are not historical are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements in this news release include all our planned drilling program and our planned route to access partners or funding sources. Factors which may delay or prevent these forward-looking statements from being realized include: the failure of our proposals to be accepted; we may not attract any partners or funding sources; we may not be able to raise sufficient funds to complete our intended exploration, keep our properties or carry on operations; and we may encounter an inability to continue exploration due to weather, logistical problems, labor or equipment problems or hazards even if funds are available. Even if we find a partner, we may not be able to reach agreement or carry out the development program as contemplated. Despite encouraging data there may be no commercially exploitable mineralization on our properties. 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 Securities and Exchange Commission.
