Element 25 Ltd (ASX: E25): Australia’s Largest Onshore Manganese Resource, 263 Mt of Manganese, Extremely Low Mining Costs, High Quality: Interview with Justin Brown, Executive Director
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA

Element 25 Limited (ASX: E25)
owns 100% of the Butcherbird Project that hosts Australia’s largest onshore manganese resource. The project is located in a low-risk mining jurisdiction, in Western Australia, near excellent infrastructure. It contains around 263 Mt of manganese ore, with exceedingly simple geology. We learned from Justin Brown, Executive Director of Element 25, that they are finishing the pre-feasibility study at Butcherbird and perfecting a metallurgical flow sheet to make high purity manganese products, including electrolytic manganese metal, and a high purity manganese sulfite for lithium ion battery cathode manufacturers. According to Mr. Brown, their cost per unit of manganese is very low, thanks to extremely low mining costs, very low energy requirement, and use of renewable energy, including up to 50% wind and solar, which will make their high-purity manganese the cleanest, greenest, and possibly lowest cost manganese on the planet.

Chalice Gold (ASX: CHN, TSX: CXN, OTCQB: CGMLF): Portfolio of District-Scale Gold and Nickel Sulfide Exploration Projects, in High-Grade Mining Regions of Australia; Interview with Alex Dorsch, Managing Director
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA

Chalice Gold Mines (ASX: CHN, TSX: CXN, OTCQB: CGMLF)
is focused on a portfolio of district-scale gold and nickel sulphide exploration projects, in high-grade mining regions of Australia: the 100%-owned Pyramid Hill Gold Project, in the highly prospective and reinvigorated Bendigo gold district of Victoria, and the King Leopold Nickel Project, in the frontier west Kimberley region of WA. Chalice has been actively exploring across both projects, with an exciting new phase of drilling, recently commenced in Victoria. We learned from Alex Dorsch, Managing Director of Chalice, that multiple well-timed asset sales have positioned them in a strong and unique financial position for a small exploration company. Since 2012, Chalice has returned about a third of that profit to its shareholders, while still keeping ~30 million AUD in working capital. According to Mr. Dorsch, Chalice hasn't raised any capital for about eight years, avoiding dilution. Mr. Dorsch believes that the large-scale gold targets they are currently drilling at their 5,190km² Pyramid Hill Project in Victoria, represent high profile targets, with strong upside potential. The Company's team is made-up of highly credentialed mining executives, who have made discoveries and run successful mining companies before.
