VIDEO: Fabled Copper $FABL Meeting The Future Demand For Copper By Making Discoveries Today

Posted by AGORACOM at 4:35 PM on Wednesday, January 5th, 2022


The World Needs Copper: Global Copper Consumption Outstripping Supply

“A new energy vehicle (EV) needs 80kg of Copper compared with 23kg in an internal combustion engine vehicle” Kitco

Demand for Copper is projected to rise by 5% yearly, outstripping supply which is projected to increase by 2.3% yearly

This is why brand new Fabled Copper’s mandate is to explore and define high level and high-grade copper resources in Northern BC. ( which also happens to be a tier one exploration jurisdiction). Their main focus is the Muskwa property with a high grade mining history containing a minimum of 22 documented copper occurrences of which 4 are defined deposits with historical reserves and resources.

Fabled is taking an aggressive exploration approach and are already outlining a drill program for the 22 field season.

Here are some of the documented copper occurrences in 3 separate claim blocks (Neil, Toro, Bronson) and you can see why Fabled is intent on taking a aggressive approach to exploration and development. The project boast highgrade copper and lots of it.

Neil: 10 Copper occurrences with the Neil vein 19 metres wide, visible for more than 1,000 metres vertically & has assayed 10.2% copper over 3.0 metres

Davis-Keays: Historical Indicated reserve *of 3.7 million tons at 2.5% Copper cut-off grade or an estimated 1.4million tons at 3.42% Copper

Toro-Churchill: – sampling returned 8.8% copper over a width of 19 meters and strike length of 133 meters

Magnum Vein: developed and mined from 1970 to 1974 milling 549,000 tons grading 3.00 % Copper – stopped due to low copper prices

And if that doesn’t help identify the discovery opportunity, have a look at the combined experience amongst the management team, over 200 years’ combined exploration experience; and with that comes knowledge, lots of it. They are using their experience with cutting edge technologies to exploit the significant exploration upside. The use of drones has been prevalent throughout the 2021 exploration program and combined with the use of LIDAR and modern geophysics, the team plans on using the information gained to lead a very aggressive 2022 program that will include drilling.

At a time when Copper is breaking out and trending within the 4.20 to 4.80 price range; up over 100% since early 2020, Fabled shareholders received a generous Christmas present from Peter Hawley, President & CEO as the company embarks on delivering the Copper supply needed for the needs of tomorrow.

Sit back and enjoy this fantastic video as Peter walks us through the next emerging Copper growth story of 2022 and beyond.

Cross River Ventures $CRVC $CSRVF District Scale Gold Discovery Potential in Red Lake, Ontario

Posted by AGORACOM at 4:43 PM on Thursday, December 16th, 2021

Cross River Ventures is focused on the development of top tier exploration properties in the premier mining district of Red Lake Ontario exploring for gold, and for several good reasons.

The Red Lake Mining jurisdiction hosts one of the largest mineral rich greenstone belt on the planet that has produced 200 million ounces of gold in over 100 years of mining. This includes a total gold endowment exceeding 300million ounces with over 124 mines and 21 plus deposits with more than 3 million ounces each.

Cross River hosts 7 Projects (over 28,000-hectares) within the prolific greenstone belts of NW Ontario, Canada which host the most productive gold deposits in the world.

This is where Cross River is targeting gold for discovery potential.

Armed with a world class technical team led by Dr. Rob Carpenter, who was the CEO of Kaminak,     ( acquired by Goldcorp for CDN $520 million), know how to plan and execute a exploration program designed specifically to make a discovery.

Cross Rivers Flagship McVicar Property is just one of the properties they are targeting for discovery. Situated close to the 3.8m Oz Springpole deposit controlled by First Mining Gold Corp. ( FF.TO ) it hosts 2 mineralized trends that are parallel to one another and include new surface discoveries of gold, as well as previous sampling of high grade with numerous results greater than 500g/t gold.

McVicar is ready to be fully explored and drill permits for the property have been issued for multiple target areas delineated via modern geophysics.

The recent driver of attention to the Red Lake area is the takeover of Great Bear Resources by Kinross Gold Corp. under which Kinross has agreed to acquire all of the outstanding common shares of the Red Lake explorer for C$29.00 per share, approximately $1.8-billion and being done without a resource calculation. This is primarily due to the excellent nature of their drill results.

The peer takeover speaks to the attractiveness of discovery potential and quality of the mining jurisdiction. Cross River is in the right neighborhood to make a discovery, at the right time in the market, and when attention in the area has never been greater.

Sit back and enjoy this great interview with Cross River Venture CEO Alex Klenman as he walks us through their objective to make a discovery equal to their peers in the Red Lake Mining District.

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 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.

VIDEO: Fabled Silver Gold $FCO $FBSGF Intersects Multi Kilo Intercept of 2,269.26 g/t Silver, or 72 Troy Ounce $RDU $KTN $GMBXF $EDR

Posted by AGORACOM at 2:47 PM on Tuesday, June 8th, 2021

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

What is that and why is that important?

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 their recent press release of 2269 g/t silver.

That is not a typo, in other words it is also 2.269 kilos AgEq or 72 troy ounce

2021 Exploration:

Completed 18 holes for 3250m of the increased 9200m program

  • Hole 20-19 in progress
  • 2nd drill added underground and on 2nd hole
  • 1st underground hole submitted for assay

The Santa Maria Project is poised to deliver as multiple new structures are being investigated and discovered through the ongoing drill program.

CLIENT FEATURE: Fabled Silver Gold $FCO $FBSGF to Spin-Out Fabled Copper Co. to Shareholders $CMMC $NDM $CS $GMBXF

Posted by AGORACOM at 8:42 PM on Wednesday, June 2nd, 2021

Fabled Silver Gold (TSXV:FCO ) (OTCQB: FBSGF) is in the metal discovery business.

They recently added copper to the exploration menu with news of a spin out of their Northern B.C. assets into Fabled Copper Co., providing FCO shareholders with a new vehicle capable of making a metals discovery.

Fabled Silver Gold controls 100% of the Santa Maria Gold and Silver property in Mexico and is its flagship project. It is a high grade underground mine with a rich mining history and a Silver Equivalent 43-101 with 3.2million ounces Indicated and 1.1m inferred.

Now as far as silver projects go 3.2M ounces isn’t very big but when serial mine finder and industry stalwart Peter Hawley was presented with it in 2016, he came out of retirement saying “it was almost too good to be true” and “this is the one I’ve been looking for.”

Santa Maria’s best historical intercept to date is a reported 11meters of 1,672 g/t Silver & 3.74 g/t gold and ending in mineralization. Current exploration has demonstrated drill success from the very first holes with an incredible intercept of 10 ounces of silver over 6 meters. As a result of the drill success, Fabled increased their original program from 8,000m to a minimum of 9200m to drill from underground to firm up the known resource, and for “Blue Sky drilling”  to explore the numerous anomalies unexplored on the property capable of demonstrating discovery potential.

Not only that, Santa Maria is definitely in a great “neighborhood” within the mining friendly jurisdiction of Parral that has produced over 250M oz silver.  The Parral mining district is situated in the centre of the Mexican epithermal silver-gold vein districts. The belt has been recognized as a significant metallogenic province, which has reportedly produced more silver than any other equivalent area in the world. Grupo Mexico, as an example, are their neighbor and border the Santa Maria property. Grupo (GMBXF) valued at 38$Billion, is the largest mining corporation in Mexico.

Santa Maria is in the perfect environment for further discoveries and increased development, yet has never been systematically or thoroughly explored with modern methods, until now.   FCO is currently conducting their first drill program to support the 43-101 and expect results flowing right through June. It’s an excellent project and a company maker.

So why are we switching to copper?

Peter thinks he can do it again, only this time with Dr. Copper, who is in a metals bull of its own, and with properties located in a very favorable mining jurisdiction, British Colombia, Canada

Fabled is spinning out its copper assets to be placed into a new public vehicle, Fabled Copper Co., and the assets are good, really good. They already demonstrate the necessary value to create an excellent copper exploration and development company.  In this case, Fabled’s Northern B.C “Muskwa” copper assets act like a dividend for Fabled Silver Gold shareholders. A unanimous Board approval vaults the Muskwa Copper project directly into the forefront of investors’ attention. Current shareholders will receive a new share in Fabled Copper Co. for every 5 Fabled Silver Gold Shares. It’s an incredible bonus for shareholders as it generates a Newco to follow a completely different metal currently in its own bull market.

Shareholders will own shares in both companies, Silver and Copper, and benefit by allowing capital markets to ascribe value to the Muskwa copper project independent of the Company`s silver properties.

Alone, this is a great deal for shareholders, but what may be hidden amongst the capital markets excitement is the fact that the 100% controlled Muskwa project comprises 3 known deposits and over 20 copper occurrences.

This is not small scale. The exploration and development infrastructure is advanced, extensive really. Fabled is prepared to act very quickly and are already on task to define multiple exploration teams, outfitters, helicopter services to outline, and budget a July to September 2021 exploration program.

Sometime words convey the story, but in this case it is better to hear it and see it directly.

Watch this amazing 2 minute video with CEO Peter Hawley that captures the magnitude of the exploration potential and work accomplished to date. It portends a very bright future for a discovery for all shareholders near and dear to Fabled. Silver, Gold….or Copper.

VIDEO – Royal Helium $ One Step Closer to Primary Helium Production After Drilling Multiple Zones of Economic Helium in Saskatchewan $ $APD $AHELF

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 4:18 PM on Thursday, April 15th, 2021

If you think about balloons / blimps when thinking about Helium uses, we wouldn’t blame you … but you’d also be missing out on a much much bigger picture.

Looking beyond just balloons, Helium is a high tech gas, with many uses in rocket engines, semiconductors, electronics, and health care. These sectors pressure the demand for helium in concert, making it a gas in very short supply, causing the price to rise.

Saskatchewan is one of the only places on earth with current and past production of primary Helium. This is where Royal Helium comes into play as they are one of the largest land holders searching for Helium and recently announced that testing identified zones that range in thickness from five meters to in excess of 30 meters. These zones returned levels ranging from 0.33% to 0.94%, demonstrating the commercial potential of the Climax project

Worldwide usable Helium is in short supply as demand is increasing, making it a high-priced commodity, take a seat and discover why Royal Helium is the next SmallCap Stock to discover.

SX Eco-Mining $ $SXOOF Releases Initial Cathode Material EV Battery Test Results $ $ $ $ATAO

Posted by AGORACOM at 9:22 AM on Monday, April 12th, 2021
  • 100% of the targeted metals were recycled in situ or selectively leached in solution

St-Georges Eco-Mining Corp. (CNSX:SX.CN)(OTC:SXOOF) (FSE:85G1) is pleased to disclose the results of its initial electric vehicle (EV) cathode material battery recycling tests aimed at specific car makers and OEM battery specifications.

As previously disclosed in a press release titled Initial Recovery Battery Test Results” dated February 22, 2021, the Company has set aside a significant portion of its laboratories resources to be able to perform “(…) additional tests to optimize the process of recovery of critical elements (…) using synthetic compounds to move the development along faster.” In a subsequent press release titled EV Batteries Recovery Tests Results: Lithium” dated March 18, 2021, the Company disclosed that it had “(…) completed EV battery characterization for the following car makers: Tesla, General Motors (GM), Ford, Toyota, and Nissan. The batteries were sourced from industry aggregators. The Company’s chemists and metallurgists created synthetic powder clones of the metal’s components allowing the testing’s acceleration (…)” Additionally, leveraging the support of some important stakeholders in the success of Company initiatives, St-Georges’ metallurgists were able to gather data on the composition of certain batteries in development or about-to-be commercially deployed in the coming year that are Lithium-Iron-Phosphate or LFP (LiFePO4) based. These not-yet-on-the-market batteries have been conceptually characterized, synthetically reproduced, and tested with the Company’s processing technology.

Four sets of battery category, covering all current car makers previously mentioned, along with the addition of the LFP batteries, have been processed in St-Georges’ contracted pilot-plant installations:

 |Main Core Powder|Chemical Formula      |
 |LCO             |LiCoO2                |
 |LMO             |LiMn2O4               |
 |NMC             |LiNi0.33Mn0.33Co0.33O2|
 |LFP             |LiFePO4               |

Cathode materials results

This initial test campaign’s objective was to determine which metals were put in solution from cathode materials using St-Georges’ proprietary acid-blend. From those experiments, it can be deduced that Lithium, Iron, Phosphate, Cobalt, Nickel, and Magnesium can be expected to be found in solution when using commercial batteries, on top of other metals such as Aluminium, Manganese, and Copper that can be recuperated in situ.

It is important to note that the LFP batteries might require a slightly different process to recycle 100% of the metals. Iron content generates a small amount of magnetism during the process while everything else remains in line with other battery compounds.
