General Moly, Inc. (NYSE MKT and TSX: GMO), is a U.S.-based molybdenum mineral development, exploration and mining company with an 80% interest in the Mt. Hope project located in central Nevada, which is considered one of the world's largest and highest grade molybdenum deposits. Combined with the Company's wholly-owned Liberty project, a molybdenum and copper property also located in central Nevada, General Moly's goal is to become the largest pure-play primary molybdenum producer in the world. We learned from Bruce Hansen, who is CEO and also CFO of General Moly, that the Mt. Hope project is on the lower end of the primary producer cost curve and has already attracted large strategic players in the steel industry. The Liberty project is an excellent follow-on asset that will produce about half the amount of moly as compared to the Mt. Hope project and will also produce by-product copper. Plans for 2018 include finalizing all required permits for the Mt. Hope project. According to Mr. Hansen, the moly market is improving over the long term and General Moly is the go-to story in the moly space.

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

Alabama Graphite Corp. (TSX-V: CSPG; OTCQB: CSPGF; FRANKFURT: 1AG) is a Canadian-based flake graphite development company, as well as an aspiring battery materials production and technology company. The Company operates through its wholly owned subsidiary, Alabama Graphite Company Inc. (a company registered in the state of Alabama). With the only completely battery-focused flake graphite project in the contiguous USA, Alabama Graphite intends to become the first producing American graphite mine this century — and to become a reliable, long-term leading US supplier of specialty high-purity graphite for the growing green-energy Lithium-ion battery markets. We learned from Don Baxter, President and CEO of Alabama Graphite Corporation, that the only significant future demand for flake graphite is for battery-ready graphite materials, and that's what the company is focused on. According to Mr. Baxter, graphite demand is only projected to increase for battery graphite, and you need to have the requisite expertise to process the material. Companies interested in the batteries made by Alabama Graphite include some Department of Defense contractors, who are mandated to use products made and sourced in the contiguous USA whenever possible. No other company out there can offer that, which puts Alabama Graphite in a uniquely strong position.

Image Resources NL (ASX: IMA) is an advanced exploration company located in Australia.
