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-Eric 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-Eric 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 – Helium is BIG Business. Royal Helium $RHC.ca May Have Just Made One of The Largest Discoveries in Saskatchewan History $DME.ca $APD $AHELF

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 4:22 PM on Thursday, May 13th, 2021

Helium is a high tech gas, with many uses in multiple high tech applications: MRI magnets, Fibre optic cables for high speed internet, Airbags, hard drives, chips in our electronics, cleaning rocket fuel tanks. The list is varied and demand is inelastic. They don’t function without Helium. 

This is where Royal Helium comes into play. Having drilled 3 wells in an area in Saskatchewan that had no prior Helium recognition, Royal has hit on all 3 and are already in planning stage to generate revenue from the 1st well. They have made a discovery. 

Royal Helium has aims to deliver a minimum of 1 trillion cubic feet (Tcf) of total inert gas into the market, and this discovery clearly demonstrates they are on their way. With economic concentrations ranging from 0.33% to 0.94%, Royal will commence production planning shortly on Climax-1, with the intent of producing & monetizing the helium, CO2, and nitrogen gas streams discovered 

Sit back and enjoy this #SmallCap discovery Andrew Davidson, CEO & Chairman of Royal Helium.

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 8:17 AM on Monday, April 19th, 2021

St-Georges Eco-Mining Corp. (CNSX:SX.CN)(OTC:SXOOF) (FSE:85G1) is pleased to disclose that it has entered a binding term sheet to secure the site and building for its proposed battery recycling plant in the deep seaport of Baie-Comeau on the Québec North Shore.

The parties will have 30 days to finalize and execute a long-form agreement conditional on the positive outcome of the feasibility study already underway. Part of the binding agreement concerns the access to the engineering expertise that will allow the Company to have trained professionals working in the facilities from day one of operations planned for later this year.

Important milestone reached allowing equipment vendors to share information with the newly secured engineering team to accelerate the design of the Baie-Comeau proposed electric vehicle, or EV, battery recycling plant with a target phase 1 production capability of 10,000 annual metric tonnes.

The agreement, a long-term lease with an option to buy the targeted plant, was executed on April 16, 2021, and calls for a long-form agreement to be signed within 30 days. Additionally, a long-form engineering and technical services agreement, with the option to acquire the engineering firm, Roberge Industries Inc., will be included in the final agreement.

St-Georges will design the battery recycling plant to be modular and preassembled to reduce construction and installation costs, timelines, and other challenges. The approach is to have a universal battery recycling plant that can use the procedures for process, safety, and maintenance anywhere in the world, including maintenance management systems with a technology allowing real-time auditing and the generation of tradeable carbon credits as well as machine learning management systems allowing real-time optimization of the process as well as the output based on market needs.

VIDEO – Royal Helium $RHC.ca One Step Closer to Primary Helium Production After Drilling Multiple Zones of Economic Helium in Saskatchewan $DME.ca $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 $SX.ca $SXOOF Releases Initial Cathode Material EV Battery Test Results $NNX.ca $OM.ca $ICM.ca $ATAO

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric 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.

SX Eco-Mining $SX $SXOOF: Received Latest Shipment of Bulk Test Lithium Material from Iconic $NNX.ca $OM.ca $ICM.ca $CRE.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 8:34 AM on Wednesday, April 7th, 2021

St-Georges Eco-Mining Corp. (CSE:SX)(OTC:SXOOF) (CNSX:SX.CN) (FSE:85G1) is pleased to disclose that it has received the latest shipment of bulk material from Iconic’s (TSXV:ICM) Bonnie Claire Lithium Project in Nevada.

As previously reported, St-Georges’ metallurgists were able to concentrate through mineral processing and selective leaching the original feedstock by 25 folds, down to 4% of its initial mass where 99.99% of the lithium was leached into solution after 5 minutes at low temperature and normal atmospheric pressure.

Work on the Bonnie Claire Lithium Project material will now resume along side the on-going work being conducted on other hard rock lithium resources. Current efforts of flow sheet optimisation will focus on front-end challenges, like concentration, and also on the later purification stage, where testing of a newly designed bounding solution should reduce the number of steps required to achieve a 99%+ lithium purity.

Current hypothesis developed using an array of lithium feedstocks from different sources indicate the whole closed-loop initial cycle allows a recovery rate of 90% or better.  Reprocessing of the lithium bearing proprietary acid-blend solution eventually achieves higher total recuperation and achieves battery grade purity.

Royal Helium $RHC.ca Announces That Initial Testing Confirms Economic Helium Concentrations at Climax $DME.ca $APD $AHELF

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 8:47 AM on Tuesday, April 6th, 2021

Royal Helium Ltd. (“Royal” or the “Company”) (TSXV: RHC) is pleased to announce that initial gas sample test results have returned elevated and economic levels of helium concentration from multiple formations at the Climax helium project, with tests returning levels ranging from 0.33% to 0.94% from the Deadwood, Souris River and Duperow formations. The company will now commence long term production testing of the most prospective zones to confirm flow rates and ultimately resource size. 

The high graded production zones that are being tested range in thickness from five meters to in excess of 30 meters, with the ability to expand to even larger intersections. While these results are preliminary in nature and require additional confirmation, they do confirm the presence of economic helium grades on the Climax project, along with indicating that nitrogen will be the primary gas drive, though elevated levels of carbon dioxide are also present in certain tests. To date, testing has been focused on testing helium concentrations across the prospective zones with the highest level of helium detected during the drilling process. This initial concentration testing at Climax is expected to be completed over the next 10 days, following which the Royal will begin full flow testing and analysis which is expected to take an additional 30- 40 days.

Andrew Davidson, President and CEO of Royal comments “We are pleased with these initial results on our Climax helium project. Helium detection during drilling identified multiple zones of elevated helium in all three of the wells and follow-up completions testing confirmed economic helium concentrations. We look forward to the full flow testing results across all zones of interest in each of the three wells to confirm resource size and project commerciality. The fact that we have identified elevated and economic helium concentrations across significant pay zones as large as 30 meters speaks to the potential of the Climax Project.”

St-Georges $SX $SXOOF: Iceland – The Floor is Hot Lava $NNX.ca $OM.ca $ICM.ca $CRE.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 10:39 AM on Wednesday, March 31st, 2021

St-Georges Eco-Mining Corp. (CSE:SX) (CNSX:SX.CN) (OTC:SXOOF) (FSE: 85G1) would like to provide an update on the volcanic activities from the Geldingadalir volcano located on its Reykjanes provisional mineral exploration license in Iceland.

The volcano has been the site of a minor eruption for approximately 11 days at the time of this release.  St-Georges’ geologists, working under the Company’s subsidiary, Iceland Resources EHF, have taken a few kilos of rocks to obtain additional mineral and metallurgic information about what is now some of the youngest rocks on earth. The material coming out of the volcano has been rich in Magnesium, Iron, and Titanium. This appears to be preliminarily corroborated by observing the samples collected by St-Georges submitted to a Portable X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) reading.  

https://www.thenewswire.com/data/tnw/clients/img/fb913b2d504f164c9228759e0fa8217d.png

According to the Icelandic government volcanologists, this is about to change with an influx of copper and potentially precious metals with lava originating from a different depth of the mantle.

The Icelandic Meteorological Office (IMO) published a summary of the activities, commenting that: “(…) t he lava is basaltic and highly fluid with little explosive activity. It is a very small eruption, and the lava flow has been steady at 5-7 m3/s since its onset. Currently the extent of the lava field is within Geldingadalur but if the eruption keeps ongoing at a similar rate, it is modeled that the lava will flow east towards Merardalur valley. If the volcano continues to erupt it could eventually end up being categorized as a shield volcano. Shield volcanoes are generally formed over long time periods with lava fields extending from a few to several kilometers around its source. There is no way to tell how long the eruption will last.

The current magma is rich in MgO (8.5%) which indicates that it is from depths of around 17-20 km. There has been constant gas pollution close to the eruption site, spatially determined by local wind conditions. Gases can accumulate to life-threatening levels in certain weather conditions. There have been no indications of significant tectonic movements since the eruption started. There is currently no indication of new openings at other locations along the magma injection path.(…)”.

St-Georges and Iceland Resources would like to invite visiting geologists, volcanologists, journalists, and avid volcano tourists to get in touch with us. We can help organize visits to the site and provide geological support for scientific initiatives relating to the recent volcanic eruptions. We are also planning small group visits to the Thor Gold Project for people interested. Please send us a quick note via our website at www.st-georgescorp.com

About the Reykjanes exploration license

The Reykjanes provisional license is part of the license application for active exploration work that is being processed by the Icelandic authorities. It covers the area of the active volcano. It is located in the Reykjanes Peninsula near the towns of Keflavik and Grindavik and the International Airport.  Readers can see the prospect area in the map provided by ISOR in Figure 1 below.
