Engineer-Attorney Brett Gross Named to Liberty Star Board of Directors

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 12:11 PM on Monday, October 20th, 2014

TUCSON, Ariz.–Liberty Star Uranium & Metals Corp. (“Liberty Star” or the “Company”) (OTCQB: LBSR) is pleased to announce mining engineer, entrepreneur, consultant and attorney Mr. Brett Gross of Denver, Colo. has joined the Liberty Star Board of Directors. Mr. Gross is a longtime LBSR shareholder dating from the first year of its founding and helped fund the Hay Mountain ZTEM survey last year.

About Mr. Gross:

Mr. Gross is a mining engineer (BS, Ohio State University, 1982; MS, Virginia Polytechnic Institute, 1988; PE, Colorado and Alabama) and attorney (JD, University of Denver, 2001) with over 30 years of experience, both domestic and international. His work experience includes surface and underground mining operations, engineering, and delivery of construction mega-projects across multiple industrial and commercial markets, and the practice of law related to each of these sectors. Brett brings a combination of professional skills that benefits every aspect of Liberty Star’s business. Brett’s engineering career began at Virginia Tech, with research focused on rock mechanics and the stability of underground openings, particularly the phenomenon of “coal bumps” and “rock bursts,” and studying methods to monitor stress changes in the longwall barrier pillar during the onset of the active longwall face. The ensuing years of his career have been intimately involved with a broad spectrum of engineering, operations, management and project delivery. Since 2002, Brett has practiced law both in private practice and as in-house counsel, negotiating and closing complex deals with what today is among the largest and most successful engineering and construction firms in the United States.

Jim Briscoe, Liberty Star CEO and Chief Geologist, comments, “Brett has a mining background, innovative ideas and solid connections with investors who may be interested in funding Phase 1 drilling. He has held LBSR stock for many years, and shares the goal of increasing our stock’s value through concrete activities toward the development of Hay Mountain and other projects. He will bring another spectrum to the Board as a mining engineer experienced in both open pit and underground mines, entrepreneur mentality, business experience, and legal background applied to heavy construction and mining agreements and negotiations. A recent full day, intensive trip to the Company facilities and the Hay Mountain target and adjacent similar exposed mines a few weeks ago, reinforced his enthusiasm and faith in Liberty Star and careful approach to exploration and understanding of mines and mining. We believe Brett will be a giant addition to our Board of Directors and we look forward to having him on the team.”

Stria Validates Its Pontax Lithium Mineralization as Feedstock for a Novel, Low-Cost, Environmentally Sustainable Chlorination-based Pilot Plant Process

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 10:03 AM on Monday, October 20th, 2014

OTTAWA, ONTARIO–(Oct. 20, 2014) - Stria Lithium Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SRA) (“Stria” or the “Company”) is pleased to report the completion of a dense media separation study (“DMS”) demonstrating the mineralogical quality of spodumene mineralization from its wholly-owned Pontax Lithium Project in the James Bay Region of Northern Quebec.

The mineralization will be used to feed Stria’s pilot plant using novel technologies for purification purposes. Pilot plant operations are scheduled for early 2015.

In April 2014, Stria conducted a surface sampling program at its Pontax property to collect 100kg of spodumene mineralization. The aim of the program was to demonstrate the mineralization was amenable to conventional processing techniques and; to validate that spodumene concentrate could be used with conventional DMS or gravity separation techniques to feed the proposed pilot plant.

Mineralogical and metallurgical testing was undertaken by SGS Canada at their Lakefield, Ontario facilities. It included sample preparation, head sample analysis, mineralogical analysis, heavy liquid separation (“HLS”) tests and the grindability characterization. Upon completion of the gravity separation tests, dense media separation and magnetic separation were conducted to improve the grade and recovery of the spodumene.

SGS reported that conventional HLS processes indicated the Pontax mineralization can generate an initial spodumene concentrate recovery of 53.9% Li grading at 6.03% Li2O. With fine portions added, the total spodumene concentrate is capable of achieving 94.9% Li purity.

Work continues at SGS using a small parallel flotation circuit to upgrade the middlings and to improve overall recoveries and lithium purity. HLS testing also demonstrated it was possible to reject 61% of the original mass as mainly silicate gangue with a resulting Li loss of only 5.1% of that mass.

“We are very pleased with these metallurgical test results,” said Stria President and Chief Operating Officer Julien Davy. “They confirm our Pontax spodumene mineralization is a viable feedstock for a planned 2015 pilot plant.

“Our next milestone will be to demonstrate our proprietary technologies – as we designed them – are capable of producing high grade Li-metal, Li-carbonate or Li-hydroxide products with significant economies realized within a low chemical consumption environment,” said Mr. Davy.

“The greatest cost in producing lithium compounds and products are attached to processing and purification. Stria’s business model holds a ‘technology-first’ bias aimed at building a disruptive, competitive advantage into both our spodumene and brine operations,” Mr. Davy added.

About Stria Lithium Inc.

Stria Lithium (TSX VENTURE:SRA) 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.

CLIENT FEATURE: Robix (RZX: CSE) Revolutionary Oil Spill Clean Up Technology

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:29 AM on Thursday, October 16th, 2014

The Corporation is an “industrial products/technology” company, offering to investors a unique opportunity to participate in a leading company in the business of ownership of patents, and their development from commercialization to worldwide expansion through various business arrangements.

Featured COV Technology

 

 

 

Highly Cost Effective – Clean Ocean Vessel

  • The COV’s rapid recovery rate and large on-board storage result in low per barrel recovery cost.
  • The COV’s simple design minimizes down time for repair and maintenance.
  • A two-man crew can be easily trained and the COV vessel can operate long hours without interruption
  • Construction of the first commercial Clean Ocean Vessel is progressing, with a Q4 2014 target for launch

Design Versatility

  • COV’S can be scaled to meet various application requirements (sizes range from 10 Ft., 20 Ft., 40 Ft., 80 Ft., 100 Ft. (references to length of vessel
  • A standard 40-foot COV is 40 feet in length, 26 feet in width, and 12 feet in depth
  • The following page has a 3D visual description of a COV
  • Recently completed the engineering drawings for the Clean Ocean Vessel (COV) and ordered critical components to initiate construction on the COV

Recent Highlights

  • Creating a new business division, through a subsidiary entity, to enter into the marine industry.
  • Announced that Rick Carson, of Montreal, PQ, has agreed to join Robix as a Strategic Advisor.
  • Announced that it intends to enter into an agreement with Rayco Steel Inc., wherein Rayco shall work on completion of engineering construction drawings for the anticipated construction of the first Clean Ocean Vessel.

How the COV compares to the competition:

  • Rates of oil recovered and recovery-throughput efficiencies are noted as “oil rate of recovery” (ORR) and “recovery efficiency” (RE).
  • The water surface lifting force generated by the COV’s patented contra-rotating drums acts in a suction or pumping manner that increases the ORR compared to conventional skimmer systems and the RE of the COV is in the 90-97% range. This is competitive with best in class 21st century technology in terms of ORR and RE.
  • Further improvements to the ORR (in terms of gallons per minute) could easily catapult the COV to “top three” status, by increasing the surface area of the drums through design modifications without impairing the stability of the vessel which is inherent to the COV design.
  • When our competitors’ skimmer systems meet waves above 18 inches, they are forced to suspend service. The COV operates in rough sea conditions (as high as 8 feet waves), significantly out-performing its competitors, and stands in a class of its own.

Company Objectives

  • Seeks to establish itself as a leading intellectual property holder to help meet the worlds growing energy needs, while considering the significant requirement to find and use the most effective integrated green energy solutions.
  • Protection of the environment, whether it is on land, sea, or in the air is still a growing global concern and in the 21st century, more than ever, it is imperative that effective products and services be available. Since its incorporation, Robix has sought to expand its capability to package and deliver these critical resources.

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 6:08 AM on Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

Neah Power Partners With Silent Falcon to Integrate Fuel Cells Into Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV)

Formira® Hydrogen-on-Demand Technology Expected to Increase Mission Endurance and Enable Heavier Payloads; Jointly Published White Paper Available on Website

BOTHELL, WA–(Oct 15, 2014) – Neah Power Systems, Inc. (OTCQB: NPWZ) will be partnering with Silent Falcon™ UAS Technologies (‘Silent Falcon’) to integrate the formic acid reformer (Formira™) based fuel cell technology into the Silent Falcon UAV. A jointly published white paper is available at www.neahpower.com and at www.silentfalconuas.com. The fuel cell could significantly increase the mission endurance by between two times to three times the current duration, as well as enable heavier payloads. Formic acid is a safe, energy dense fuel, allowing easy handling, distribution, and refueling in remote locations worldwide, unlike compressed hydrogen.

The patent pending Silent Falcon is a solar/electric, all composite, modular small Unmanned Aircraft System (sUAS) designed for commercial, public safety, and military applications. With Silent Falcon’s solar electric propulsion system, rugged composite structure, and three interchangeable wing configurations, it is the first sUAS capable of meeting long range and long endurance mission profiles.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Silent Falcon UAS Technologies. We are looking forward to this joint development of extending the mission endurance for their UAS,” said Chris D’Couto, president and CEO of Neah Power Systems, Inc. “The Formira technology uses a liquid fuel, and is a very attractive energy option as it does not have the low energy density, safety and handling challenges of compressed hydrogen.”

John W. Brown, Silent Falcon CEO said, “I believe the biggest advantage to having a Neah fuel cell on board Silent Falcon will not only be the extra endurance, but the ability to carry heavier and power hungry payloads. This is already one of our most important competitive differentiators and is what is attracting lots of folks to our products. Neah will also give us the ability to offer extended endurance at night, which is huge from our perspective. We look forward to integrating this technology into our UAV for a demonstrable performance advantage and the ability to serve an even wider range of markets and applications.”
