Video – Avalon Advanced Materials $AVL is Creating Ontario’s First Regional Lithium Battery Materials Refinery in Thunder Bay $SMY $NB $APY

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 5:03 PM on Thursday, April 14th, 2022

 Did you know that there is a growing demand for formerly-obscure elements in new technologies such as clean energy, aerospace, energy efficiency, modern electronics and medical applications.

Avalon is the gateway for shareholder access to these metals as advances in technology increase demand

Avalon owns a diverse critical metals and minerals property portfolio and is poised to fill this emerging high tech demand through the exposure to rare earth elements, lithium, tin, indium, cesium and tantalum. Obscure yes, but no less valuable than the other metals that are driving the demand for new advances in technologies such as Nickel, Cobalt and Copper.

Avalon has been developing critical mineral properties since the mid 1990’s, when President & CEO, Don Bubar, first acquired the Separation Rapids Lithium Project for its industrial mineral potential for glass-ceramics. The project in northwestern Ontario hosts the world’s largest, undeveloped known resource of the rare lithium mineral petalite. Avalon is currently re-evaluating the potential to serve the glass-ceramics market and has also investigated the possibility of producing a high purity lithium chemical for the rapidly expanding market in lithium ion batteries.

The global glass industry is valued at over $100 billion, and continues to grow through innovation of new glass products, many of which take advantage of the unique properties of lithium for strengthening glass. In addition to the burgeoning battery industry expansion, the glass industry still represents 25-30% of global demand for lithium

… but wait there is more…

Avalon has made a stunning announcement recently to establish Ontario’s first regional Lithium Battery Materials Refinery in Thunder Bay, and they are not doing it alone. Supported by the Essar Group,  a company with assets under management of over 8.2 BILLION, they plan on refining not only their own critical metals, but those of other companies as well. This is true leadership in the metals arena and a decision that will reward Avalon shareholder for years to come as they develop a supply chain for lithium in Ontario.

Sit down and take a moment to listen to this fantastic interview with Don Bubar, President and CEO of Avalon Advanced Materials Inc. as he walks investors through the plans to establish a regional lithium battery materials supply chain to serve the needs of future electric vehicle and battery manufacturers in Ontario and elsewhere.

TSX listed Candente Copper owns Canariaco Norte, a large, economic copper deposit in Peru that continues to advance technically and economically toward a sale or production decision. A 2022 Preliminary Economic Assessment (“PEA”) is nearing completion that will advance it further toward development

Now it has a sister deposit, Canariaco Sur located 2km away that could help advance developments much quicker.

Canariaco Sur contains 2.2 billion pounds of copper and 1.2 million ounces of gold in an inferred resource calculated with only 15 holes, demonstrating a considerable amount of metal.
Sur contains higher levels of gold and molybdenum than Cañariaco Norte, minimal arsenic levels and mineralization that starts at surface. Cañariaco Sur has the potential to add significant value to the resources at Cañariaco Norte, 2km to the northeast.

Cañariaco Norte is a 100% owned pre-feasibility-stage porphyry copper deposit containing 7.5B pounds Measured and Indicated and can be mined for 22 years once in production. Oh, and Canariaco Norte is in the lowest quartile of production costs for projects waiting to be developed at around 0.98c per pound of copper. If that doesn’t have your attention, the third party validation will, look at these partners supporting Candente in 4 research papers comparing various global copper projects in the last 4 years as it now moves 2 deposits toward development:

RFC Ambrian: Cañariaco Norte in top 10 of 23 projects with potential to involve third party M&A (December 2021)
Haywood: Cañariaco Norte is one of 18 assets selected as likely to be considered by majors looking to acquire (December 2021)
Deutsche Bank: Cañariaco Norte identified as one of 3 projects required to meet the upcoming copper supply-demand gap (February 2021)
Goldman Sachs: Cañariaco Norte identified with incentive copper price in the lowest quartile of the top 84 copper projects worldwide (October 2018)

Canariaco Norte is a deposit itching to become a mine and Candente continues to advance the project forward with studies evaluating various methodologies to reduce CAPEX with multiple scenarios that support developing Canariaco closer to a production scenario.

With the price of copper firmly above $4 dollars, the economics supporting Canariaco going into production only gets stronger, and now Canariaco has a sister deposit helping to expedite matters.
Watch this great interview with Candente CEO Joanne Freeze as walks through Canariaco Sur and the exciting new developments aiding the development of 2 exciting copper porphyry deposits.

MVMD Takes Existing Vaccines and Drugs – And Delivers Them Better. Both Into The Body and By Transportation To The World. Way Better.

For the purposes of introducing you to Mountain Valley MD (MVMD), we’ll use vaccines as an example given the state of the world since COVID-19 arrived. Specifically, we’ve all heard more about vaccines in 12 months than we have in the last 12 years. One thing we all know about vaccines is that vaccination is the safest way to protect people against infectious diseases.

BUT

One thing we don’t know or understand about vaccinations is that they are only as good as:

1. The global physical delivery system that actually gets them from the manufacturer to the hands of nurse who injects the vaccine;

2. The delivery system into your body (i.e. injection)

If either parts of these delivery systems are weak, or even fail, a vaccine loses some or even all of its potency – and that’s not good. This is where MVMD comes in. They don’t make the vaccines, drugs or pharmaceuticals.

What they do is make their delivery better. Their physical delivery until their ultimate delivery into your body – and that is very good. By doing so, they help save lives and they help manufacturers be more profitable – and that is very good for humanity and shareholders.

A “magic bullet” is of little use without a “magic gun” – Mountain Valley MD Is The Magic Gun.

Check out these Trials & Research MVMD is accomplishing with their Vaccine technology to improve our lives:

* Expanding Oncology Work for BreastCancer using Quicksol™ technology applications

* Farm Animal Trials Using Solubilized Ivermectin

* Discovering Immediate Demand for Generic Ivermectin Uses

The latest news Involves utilizing their vaccine technology to address & develop products for the Medical Sleep Market in the U.S. strictly using cannibinoids.

Sit back and enjoy the great interview with President & CEO Dennis Hancock as he explains the developing relationship with Red White & Bloom to create products for the US sleep market.

VIDEO: Fabled Silver Gold $FCO $FBSGF President & CEO Peter Hawley Discusses How Grade is King with Latest High Grade Intercepts $FCO $FBSGF $RDU $KTN $GMBXF $EDR

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 10:06 PM on Saturday, September 11th, 2021

Fabled Silver Gold (FCO TSXV) ( FBSGF: OTC ) controls 100% of the Santa Maria mine gold and silver property in Mexico.

It is a high grade silver gold property that is situated right in the middle of the Mexican Epithermal silver gold belt that has reportedly produced more silver than any other equivalent area in the entire planet.

To say it’s a mining friendly jurisdiction is an understatement.

Multiple major operators are in the vicinity and Santa Maria already has a silver equivalent 43-101 of 3.2m ounces, but is adding to that not only in tonnage, but in grade. High grade; and that only improves a future 43-101.

High grade mines pay back Capital costs faster, making them economic and profitable.

Check out these intercepts from the last 4 press releases that include not only high grade silver but a new gold discovery as well:

Aug 17: New Gold System, Hits Lower Feeder, which Returns 580.01 g/t Silver Eq, PLUS 19.90% Lead, 5.18% Zinc and 1.29% Copper

Aug 23rd: Intercepts Gold Bearing Sheeted Vein Structure Over A True Width of 150 Meters

Sept 1st: New High Grade Vein Breccia Outside Santa Maria Structure Boundaries, with Grades High As 1,072.73 g/t Ag Eq and..

Sept: 8th: Fabled Hits Supergene Quartz Breccia Over 1.35 Meters Grading 689.56 g/t Ag Eq

Fabled is intent on proving Santa Maria is bigger and of potentially higher grade than the market understands, and is well on its way. Grade is king an the mines with the best grade get developed first.

Santa Maria is already a proven past producer, the development progress made by Fabled is only increasing the potential re-development, but with potential better economics. Sit back and enjoy as Peter Hawley President & CEO explains the importance of how high grade intercepts improve a mines chance of being developed.

It is a high grade silver gold property that is situated right in the middle of the Mexican Epithermal silver gold belt that has reportedly produced more silver than any other equivalent area in the entire planet.

To say it’s a mining friendly jurisdiction is an understatement.

Multiple major operators are in the vicinity and it’s already got a silver equivalent 43-101 of 3.2m ounces, but is looking to add to that significantly with recent intercepts of 2269 g/t silver.

That is not a typo, in other words it is also 2.269 kilos AgEq or 72 troy ounce. Just recently, Fabled encountered a new, previously unknown gold zone with the discovery of a high grade gold system with values up 10.85 g/t Au within 30.7m grading 161.09 Ag Eq, and the latest assays show 22 g/t gold in a discovery that increases the mineralization beyond known areas, and is open in all directions.   Fabled is moving from high grade silver into a more gold rich environment that includes silver


This quote from Peter J. Hawley, CEO and President describes the discovery:

……“ ‘As a result of discovering this new gold domain system, and ongoing interpretation of structural controls, assays results to date, and visual examination of recently drilled holes we have immediately expanded the present drilling by 5,000 meters, to a total of 14,200 meters. This will ensure that we have significant meterage to properly evaluate this gold discovery.’……..” we continue to define a new, never discovered high grade gold mineral domain system, with silver credits, over consistent widths in an area never explored, and which remains open to the west and at depth, plunging 45 degrees to the west and open in all directions for expansion.

Fabled is intent on proving Santa Maria is bigger and of potentially higher grade than the market understands and is well on its way as the deposit appears to be developing at depth into a dominant high grade gold system.

Sit back and enjoy as Peter Hawley President & CEO explains the importance of increasing the drill program beyond 14,000m and how expanding exploration will continue to yield discoveries.

Xali Gold ( XGC:TSXV ) has assembled a Western Mexico project portfolio of gold assets and have developed a strategy for organic growth to exploit its Flagship Gold Project El Oro, a prolific high-grade gold-silver epithermal vein system.

Xali has acquired gold and silver projects with near surface exploration potential & near-term production potential:

El Dorado Gold-Silver Project:

Rights to the El Dorado gold and silver historic mines was the initial step in this strategy, providing Xali the right to explore and produce gold, silver and other metals for life of mine.

Cocula Gold Project: profit-sharing agreement

  • Near term, low cost production potential by leaching and/or flotation
  • Retain 70% of profits
  • Recent drill targets Identified

Acquisition of the “SDA” Plant:

The SDA Mill is a fully operational flotation plant which also includes a precious metals leach circuit – Merrill Crowe system and associated assets, licenses and agreements, suitable for treating high grade gold and silver mineralization.

These assets are being positioned to create cash flow to develop Flagship El Oro Gold District where the primary focus is the past producing San Rafael Vein; 2.4km strike of high-grade Epithermal veins.

The project covers 20 veins with past production and more than 57 veins in total and approximately 6.4 million ounces of gold and 74 million ounces of silver were reported to have been produced from just two of these veins. Historical Average grades: 10-12 g/t gold & 120-160 g/t silver

  • Xali has identified 31 exploration targets

Flooding in one section of the San Rafael vein in 1929 resulted in the other two sections flooding and work ceasing abruptly and unexpectedly. El Oro was not mined out.
The financial benefits from Western Mexico operations will translate across platforms to strengthen the Company’s efforts to explore and potentially mine areas demonstrated to contain mineralization of value
