 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.

Meet the 4 SmallCap Nickel Companies Poised to Succeed in Today’s Rapidly Evolving Market $TN.ca $PM.ca $SX.ca $PNPN.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 3:41 PM on Wednesday, March 9th, 2022

The nickel market is a US$20+ billion per year industry and future nickel demand depends on battery demand and Electric Vehicle market penetration. Today’s market is dominated by stainless steel and nickel is a key base metal for building sustainable societies due to its use in stainless steel and new battery technology. Its multiple physical and chemical properties make it essential in thousands of products from mobile phones to medical equipment and wind turbines.

Nickel is also a critical component in new battery technology used in electric vehicles, and most nickel in the global supply chain is not actually suited for battery production. Battery demand requires high grade nickel products to produce nickel sulphate.

Nickel supply comes from two different types of deposits:

Class I (Nickel Sulphides): Higher grade, but rarer deposits that make up 37.5% of current production.

Class II (Nickel Laterites): Low grade, bulk-tonnage deposits that make up 62.4% of current production.

With the LME recently halting trading due to a short squeeze event, the Nickel market has been put on notice with prices for the valued metal increasing in many multiples. Future supply needs to be found, and with the LMW currently closed, some would say it needs to be found today.

Here are 4 great smallcap companies addressing this present and future need

Pampa Metals ( PM : CSE )

Pampa Metals objective is to make a major copper discovery in Chile.  They have a portfolio of 8 projects in northern Chile combined with an experienced management team and a healthy corporate treasury that positions Pampa to make a significant discovery.

Pampa is Targeting Porphyry Copper Deposits and these types range in the billions of tons provide massive quantities of coper and economies of scale when in production. Not only that, Pampa Projects in clear line of sight to prospective porphyry copper systems, and this is why they are positioned for discovery. They have a superior portfolio of projects

Power Nickel (PNPN: TSX-V) (CMETF: OTCQB )

Power Nickel is focused on high-potential battery metal prospects in Canada. The company recently completed the acquisition of its option to acquire up to 80% of the Nisk Project (Nickel, Copper, PGE) from Critical Elements Lithium Corp. as it transforms into a battery metals provider for the emerging EV Industry.

The NISK property comprises a large land position (20 kilometres of strike length) with numerous high-grade intercepts. Power Nickel is focused on confirming what is known to be there, while also expanding the ( non 43-101 ) high-grade nickel-copper PGE mineralization historical resource. This will be accomplished through the drill program by preparing a new Mineral Resource, substantially aided by the first assay results that returned 19.9 Metres of 0.7% Ni, 0.61% Cu, 0.04% Co, 0.81gPd, 0.39g Pt and add potential to ” have a commercial high-grade Nickel Sulphate deposit”

Tartisan Nickel Corp. (CSE: TN) (OTCQX: TTSRF)

An early adopter of the Electric Vehicle revolution, Tartisan was one of the first companies to target Nickel and electric battery metals to accommodate anticipated future demand.

Tartisan Nickel Corp. owns the Kenbridge Class 1 Nickel Project in northwestern Ontario with an updated Mineral Resource Estimate of 117m lbs Ni, 66m lbs Cu. Additionally, there are several untested exploration targets on the property, such as the Kenbridge North target that holds similar geophysical characteristics to the Kenbridge Deposit.

St-Georges Eco-Mining Corp. (CSE:SX)(OTC:SXOOF)

St Georges controls the Julie Nickel Project where in 2021, 4,198 meters were drilled on Julie, the bulk of which consisted of holes positioned to conduct a borehole geophysical review of the project and identify targets for the second phase of exploration drilling. Results from this effort will be communicated by press release as they become available. The continuation of phase 1 of the drilling effort is planned for spring 2022, which will follow the upcoming revision of the proposed drilling efforts. This revision is based on results received to date and is currently being compiled by the Company’s geologists.

Julie is located within the mining-friendly province of Quebec, Canada. Nickel-copper-cobalt with
​​​​​​​Grades range from 0.001% to 2.16% Ni, 0.01% to 0.33% Cu

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.
