    Interview with Nigel Lees, President and CEO Sage Gold Inc. (TSX-V: SGX): A Canadian Near-Term Gold Producer
    by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


    Sage Gold Inc. (TSX-V: SGX) is a Canadian near-term producer and mineral exploration and development company, with two key assets in Ontario: the 100% owned Clavos Gold property in Timmins and the 100% owned Onaman property in the Beardmore-Geraldton Gold Camp. We learned from Nigel Lees, who is president and CEO of Sage Gold, that they are one of the few companies to put a Canadian gold deposit in production this year. Clavos is a mine-ready project that will be operating once Sage finishes de-watering it. They expect this to happen in the latter part of the third quarter of 2017. At the same time, Sage is continuing the exploration at Clavos and they are optimistic they can develop a high grade zone below the current workings at a lower level. Mr. Lees believes this is going to be a very exciting year: the capex is extremely low, the grade is reasonably good, and he thinks that the risks are pretty low because there's a lot of infrastructure already there.

The company is about to embark on their winter drill program of over 10,000 meters of drilling, largely focusing on growing two new high-grade zones and following up regional exploration hot spots.

The high grades of lithium, the credit of tantalite byproduct, the economies of scale and the close proximity to port will make Pilgangoora one of the lowest cost hard spodumene operations. The company is backed by institutional investors. Earlier this year they raised $100 million to continue the development of the project, and recently they signed an offtake agreement with General Lithium Corporation from China, inclusive of plans for a joint venture chemical plant to convert their spodumene into lithium raw materials to take advantage of the downstream markets. Mr. Brinsden is proud of his team, pleased with the skills of the Pilbara Board and very excited about the quality of the project and the speed with which it can be developed. The construction at Pilgangoora is expected to start late this year with plant commissioning by the end of 2017.

    Interview with Bernard Tourillon, Chairman and CEO of HPQ Silicon Resources Inc. (TSX-V: HPQ): Developing a New One Step Low Cost Process to Produce an Ultra-High Purity Silicon Metal Using its Proprietary PUREVAPTM Plasma Arc - Based Process
    by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


    Bernard Tourillon, Chairman and CEO of HPQ Silicon Resources Inc., TSX-V: HPQ, is excited that HPQ Silicon Resources is successfully testing a new one step process to produce an ultra-high purity silicon metal, using a plasma arc - based process. They are working closely with PyroGenesis Canada Inc., a Montreal – based firm with 25 engineers, all highly experienced with plasma arc systems. The result is a patent-pending process capable of producing a high purity silicon product more efficiently than any other on the market. Mr. Tourillon previously stated "By unifying this technology under our brand and successfully scaling it up, we can accelerate our plan of becoming the cleanest, greenest and lowest cost vertically integrated producer of Solar Grade Silicon Metal in the world. Thanks to our great working relationship with PyroGenesis, combined with our ownership of the PUREVAP™ QVR intellectual property, HPQ Silicon is uniquely positioned to become an agent of change in the Solar Industry and beyond". Pierre Carabin, Director of Engineering of PyroGenesis further stated: "We are very happy to be moving to the pilot scale with this process. Throughout PyroGenesis' history, we have successfully taken new concepts from the lab to commercialization. As we have done with the US Navy, developing the PAWDS technology from lab scale to finally being specified in the design of the new US Aircraft Carriers, and more recently, with our Drosrite technology. We plan to systematically and successfully ramp up the PUREVAP™ process to full commercial scale. Once successful, we believe the PUREVAP™ process portends to be a game changing, and enabling, technology."

    Chris Castle, President of Chatham Rock Phosphate Ltd (CRP: NZX): Mineral Resource Development Company Holds a Mining Permit off the Coast of New Zealand with Significant Seabed Deposits of Rock Phosphate and other Potentially Valuable Minerals
    by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


    Chatham Rock Phosphate, Ltd (CRP: NZX) is a mineral resource development company that holds a mining permit over an area off the coast of New Zealand with significant seabed deposits of rock phosphate and other potentially valuable minerals. Very significantly, the Namibian government has just opened up phosphate mining off-shore in Namibia, where Chatham has five more prospecting license applications. We learned from Chris Castle, President of Chatham Rock Phosphate, that the offshore phosphate deposits are sitting on the surface of the sea floor and you can dredge the surface material off and then bring it to the shore. The material itself will be used for fertilizer. In New Zealand, where the economy is based on agriculture, the existence of a local source of phosphate is particularly important. The near-term plans, for the New Zealand deposit, include being fully permitted by the end of 2017 and going into production in 2020, mining 1.5 billion tons a year of rock phosphate and selling it for roughly $250 million dollars a year, making roughly $100 million dollars’ profit in round numbers. The Namibian project is at an earlier stage and will provide a broader base for the company in the 2020s.

    Interview with Leigh Curyer, CEO of NexGen Energy Ltd. (TSX: NXE, OTCQX: NXGEF): Flagship Arrow Mega-Deposit in the Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan, Canada, Has Unique Technical Advantages over the Existing Producing Uranium Mines
    by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


    NexGen Energy Ltd. (TSX: NXE, OTCQX: NXGEF) is a British Columbia corporation with a portfolio of highly prospective uranium exploration assets in the Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan, Canada. We learned from Leigh Curyer, CEO of NexGen Energy, that their flagship project, the Arrow Deposit, is exhibiting some very clear unique technical advantages over the existing producing uranium mines, particularly for the mega-deposits in Canada: it is 100% on land while other deposits are under lakes; it is 100% contained in the competent basement rock, so it will not require sophisticated freezing technology in order to develop and operate the mine, or during the reclamation process. With the Arrow Deposit's maiden Inferred mineral resource estimate of 201.9 M lbs. U3O8 contained in 3.48 M tonnes grading 2.63% U3O8, it is showing a likely production profile which could make it the largest producing mine on a per-pound basis globally.
