Plans for 2020 include completing feasibility study and permitting, and then financing to restart the mine.

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.

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.

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


New Century Resources (ASX: NCZ) is operating the Century Zinc Mine in Queensland, Australia, with the aim of becoming one of the world’s top 10 zinc producers. After the rehabilitation process that upgraded the mine’s existing world-class infrastructure, it successfully entered production in August 2018, with the goal of producing zinc in the lowest cost quartile globally, initially with the existing vast tailings resource on the mine site. We learned from Patrick Walta, Managing Director of New Century Resources, that during their third full quarter of operations they produced nearly 21,000 tons of zinc metal, placing them in the top 25 of all operating zinc mines in the world.

We learned from Ian Ball, who is President and CEO of Abitibi Royalties, that one of the most important things about the Company is that it is debt free and, at any given day, $40 to $45 million of its value is in securities and cash on the balance sheet. The Company has been buying back shares for three years, and its first dividend payment is scheduled for the end of September. According to Mr. Ball, Abitibi Royalties is beginning to generate cashflow that is expected to grow. The main catalysts will be the exploration efforts at the Canadian Malartic Mine, as well as the technical study on the underground expansion there, which is expected to be delivered during the first quarter of 2020. In addition, the Company is building a portfolio of royalties on early stage properties, near producing mines.

Osisko Metals Incorporated (TSX-V:OM; OTCQX: OMZNF; FRANKFURT: OB5): Controls Canada’s Two Premier Zinc Mining Camps; Interview with Paul Dumas, Executive VP of Finance
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


Osisko Metals is a Canadian exploration and development company, creating value in the base metal space, with a focus on zinc mineral assets. The Corporation controls Canada's two premier historical zinc mining camps: The Pine Point Mining Camp and the Bathurst Mining Camp. The Pine Point Mining Camp is located on the south shore of Great Slave Lake in the Northwest Territories, and currently hosts a NI43-101 inferred mineral resource of 38.4 Mt grading 4.58% zinc and 1.85% lead, making it the largest near-surface, pit-constrained zinc deposit in Canada (technical report dated January 25, 2019. The 2018-2019 drill holes, once fully assayed, will be incorporated into the database with the objective of issuing a new resource estimate in the second half of 2019. The Bathurst Mining Camp is located in northern New Brunswick, with a NI43-101 indicated mineral resource of 1.96 Mt grading 5.77% zinc, 2.38% lead, 0.22% copper and 68.9g/t silver (9.00% ZnEq) and a NI43-101 inferred mineral resource of 3.85 Mt grading 5.34% zinc, 1.49% lead, 0.32% copper and 47.7 g/t silver (7.96% ZnEq) in the Key Anacon and Gilmour South deposits. In Québec, Osisko Metals owns 42,000 hectares that cover 12 grass-root zinc targets that will be selectively advanced through exploration in 2019. We learned from Paul Dumas, Executive VP of Finance for Osisko Metals, that all the properties are located in mining-friendly jurisdictions, with great infrastructure and accessibility, and both camps (The Pine Point and Bathurst Camps) have fantastic geological upside for new discoveries. Plans for 2019 include increasing Pine Point’s resource by flying an airborne gravity survey that will identify additional targets, as well as by acquiring more land. According to Mr. Dumas, the updated resource should come out before the end of this year, and a PEA should be published in early 2020.

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


Piedmont Lithium (ASX: PLL; NASDAQ: PLL) is an emerging lithium company focused on the development of its 100%-owned Piedmont Lithium Project in North Carolina. We learned from Keith D. Phillips, Managing Director and CEO of Piedmont Lithium, that the Company is advancing the plans to build a mine, concentrator plant and a lithium hydroxide chemical plant with the goal to develop the only conventional US-based integrated lithium project based on their large, high -grade spodumene deposit. We learned from Mr. Phillips that they have just 47% increased their resource by 47% to 27.9 Mt @ 1.11% Li2O. Near term plans include building and commissioning the mine and concentrator and using the cash-flow from it to build the lithium hydroxide chemical plant. According to Mr. Phillips, the returns are fantastic, with the original scoping study showing the net present value of 888 million dollars before the resource update. Piedmont plans to receive all of the permits in 2019, and begin construction on the project in 2020, and commence the production of lithium in 2021.
