Interview with Larry W. Reaugh, President and CEO of American Manganese Inc. (TSX.V: AMY; OTC-US: AMYZF; FSE: 2AM): Recycling Cathode Metals in EV and LIB Batteries
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, US

American Manganese Inc. (TSX.V: AMY; OTC-US: AMYZF; FSE: 2AM) is a diversified specialty and critical metals company, focused on capitalizing on its patented intellectual property, through low cost production and recovery of electrolytic manganese products throughout the world, and recycling of spent electric vehicle lithium ion rechargeable batteries. We learned from Larry W. Reaugh, President and CEO of American Manganese, that they are currently focused on recycling cathode metals from LIB batteries. The technology, the company had developed, to produce manganese metal from extremely low-grade material has been adapted to achieve high recoveries of lithium, cobalt, nickel, manganese, and aluminum from spent lithium ion batteries. The patent was recently published by the US Patent Office. Plans for 2018 include working on two other patents, building the pilot plant and using pilot plant data to scale up to a three tonne a day demonstration plant. According to Mr. Reaugh, American Manganese is the most advanced company with a cathode material recycling solution and it is getting attention from China, Japan, South Korea, as well as from North America and Europe.

Interview with Rudi Fronk, Chairman and CEO, Seabridge Gold (TSX: SEA; NYSE:SA): The Best Leveraged Play to a Rising Gold Price
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, US

Seabridge Gold (TSX: SEA; NYSE:SA) holds one of the world's largest resource bases of gold, copper and silver, with the objective of growing gold resource and reserve ownership per share.

We learned from Rudi Fronk, who's chairman and CEO of Seabridge Gold, that he started Seabridge almost 19 years ago with a contrarian view on gold and with the intention to build the best leveraged play to a rising gold price, so that their share price would outperform not only gold but also other gold equities. As a result, any 10% increase in the price of gold over the past 19 years, has resulted on average in a 50% increase in the company's common share price.

Interview with Justin Brown, Executive Director, Element 25, Developing World Class High Purity Manganese Production for Li-Ion Batteries
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, US

Element 25 (ASX: E25) (formerly Montezuma Mining (ASX: MZM)) is focused on the development of a high purity manganese production facility at their world class 100% owned Butcherbird manganese Project, located in Western Australia. We learned from Justin Brown, who is Executive Director of Element 25, that as manganese prices started to pick up in 2017, due to the demand for manganese for use in lithium ion batteries, the company in collaboration with the Commonwealth Scientific Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) developed an innovative hydrometallurgical flowsheet to allow for rapid, low cost extraction of manganese from the unique Butcherbird deposit, which boasts in excess of 180Mt in resource. According to Mr. Brown the test work was incredibly successful as was the recently published scoping study. Near term plans include a pre-feasibility study for the next 6 to 12 months before they move into a definitive feasibility study phase, where they will finalize project financing and then move into construction.

Interview with Ed Turner, CEO Galena Mining Ltd (ASX: G1A): A World Class Lead Silver Project that can be in Production by 2020
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, US

Galena Mining Limited (ASX: G1A) owns 100% of the Abra base metals deposit, located in the Gascoyne Region of Western Australia, one of the biggest undeveloped lead deposit in the World. Galena completed a very successful drilling campaign in Q4 2017, with high grade lead and silver mineralization intersected in every one of the 12 holes. We learned from Ed Turner, CEO of Galena Mining, that since they listed last September, they raised 15 million Australian dollars and came up with the new resource of approximately 11 million tons at 10% lead and 28 grams per tons silver. Plans for 2018 include finishing the pre-feasibility study and bankable feasibility study that should take about one year to complete. The financing options and off-take agreements will be considered during that stage. According to Mr. Turner, there's been a shortage of lead supply, so the prices are very good and the demand continues to be very strong. The company has good base metal targets to explore and they have just commenced drilling the Woodlands' copper prospect, which is about 50 km to the west of Abra.

Interview with Normand Champigny, President and CEO of Sphinx Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: SFX), Focus on Precious Metals and High-Grade Zinc in Quebec
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, US

Sphinx Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: SFX) is engaged in the generation and acquisition of exploration projects in Québec, one of the world’s most attractive mining jurisdictions. We learned from Normand Champigny, President and CEO of Sphinx Resources, that they are currently focused on zinc and recently they've done deals with Osisko Metals to advance their Grenville Zinc Project, and also with SOQUEM for the Calumet-Sud zinc project. We learned from Mr. Champigny that zinc is a critical metal for infrastructure, and demand for zinc is rising, largely driven by new infrastructure investment in China, so zinc prices are climbing.

by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, US

CBLT Inc. (TSXV:CBLT) is a Canadian mineral exploration company and a project generator with a proven leadership team, targeting cobalt in reliable mining jurisdictions.

In 2018 and 2019 the company plans to stick with their business plan to monetize some of the assets turning them into non-dilutive financings. With cobalt prices right now up roughly 400% since February of 2016 and with the supply chain for cobalt from Congo being so unsteady, Mr. Clausi believes that the cobalt market is going to skyrocket.
