Supreme Court Decision: The Innu will not back down in their $900 million lawsuit against Rio Tinto (IOC)
UASHAT MAK MANI-UTENAM, QC, Nov. 15, 2018 /CNW Telbec/ - The Innu First Nations of Uashat mak Mani-utenam and Matimekush-Lac John are disappointed by today's decision of the Supreme Court of Canada to agree to hear an appeal by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador on the issue of the jurisdiction of Quebec Courts in respect of the Innu's $900 million lawsuit against Rio Tinto (IOC). After the Quebec Superior Court and the Quebec Court of Appeal had found in favor of the Innu on the issue, there will now be a hearing before the Supreme Court of Canada to determine whether Quebec Courts have jurisdiction over violations of the rights of the Innu caused by the mining operations of Rio Tinto (IOC) in Labrador.

"We remain convinced that our ability to obtain redress for violations of our rights by Rio Tinto (IOC) does not stop at provincial boundaries," said Mike McKenzie, Chief of Uashat mak Mani-utenam. "This decision today reinforces our desire and determination to ensure that Rio Tinto (IOC) is forced to face up to its actions and the systematic violation of our rights over the past 70 years."

This is the second time that a procedural matter in this landmark Innu lawsuit against Rio Tinto (IOC), filed in 2013, has reached the Supreme Court of Canada. Rio Tinto (IOC) suffered a loss the first time when it sought to have the Courts throw out the proceedings on the basis that the Innu should have sued the government rather than a private company.

Guyana Goldstrike Inc. (TSX.V:GYA, OTC:GYNAF, FSE:1ZT): Canadian Gold Company, Focused on Near-Term Production and Advanced Exploration; Interview with Peter D. Berdusco, President and CEO
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


Guyana Goldstrike Inc. (TSX.V:GYA, OTC:GYNAF, FSE:1ZT) is a Canadian gold exploration and development company, with a focus on near-term production and advanced exploration. The Company’s operations are in Guyana, South America, where its asset, the Marudi Gold Project is under development. The project is 13,500 acres in size, contains a mineral resource estimate, a permitted mining license and remains 95% unexplored. We learned from Peter D. Berdusco, President and CEO of Guyana Goldstrike, that their primary objective is to grow the resource to over a million ounces to start to incur interest from mid-tiers or larger players or to make the decision to go into production. Near term plans include extensive exploration drilling during the next 12 month with weekly news flow. Mr. Berdusco is bullish on gold and expects it to break through the 200-day moving average. We learned from Mr. Berdusco, that they were the benefactors of a $3.2 million equity investment from the Zijin Global and Zijin Midas Investment Funds, which are part of the Zijin Mining Group, the largest gold-producing company in China.

Lithium Chile (TSX-V: LITH): Seventeen Projects, 159,700 Hectares of Potential Lithium Bearing Salars in Chile, World’s Largest, High-Grade Lithium Reserves and Lowest-Cost Lithium Production; Interview with Steve Cochrane, President and CEO
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


Lithium Chile (TSX-V: LITH) owns seventeen projects, encompassing 159,700 hectares of potential Li-bearing Salars in Chile – home to world’s largest, high-grade lithium reserves and lowest-cost lithium production. The portfolio includes projects with potential for high-grade lithium brines and excellent chemistry. We learned from Steve Cochrane, President and CEO of Lithium Chile, that they had put together one of the best, and certainly one of the biggest, exploration packages of perspective Lithium properties in all of Chile. The company completed a sampling program and prioritized 6 of its 17 prospects, based on grade, size, infrastructure and access, and conducted an extensive follow up geophysical program on 5 out of the six prospects, with great data on all 5 of them. Based on this, the company prepared a reconnaissance drilling program on four prospects and submitted the program and received approvals from the Ministry of Mines in Chile. Lithium Chile then entered into negotiations with the local communities associated with all 4 of these prospects to secure surface access for their exploration programs. Following the approval of the local community for access to their Salar de Ollague, Lithium Chile completed a successful 5 well program. The company encountered lithium bearing brines on all 5 holes with grades ranging from 190 mg/l up to 480 mg/l in the target horizon. Lithium Chile is now conducting negotiations, with the community, on their Salar de Coipasa to secure surface access. The company plans to run the second drilling program on the Coipasa prospect because they consider this property to be one of their most prospective properties. According to Mr. Cochrane, Lithium Chile has de-risked its story over the last nine months by drilling and encountering lithium bearing brines on Ollague. With the recent retrenchment in the lithium share prices for most of the publicly traded lithium companies, at current share price the company presents an attractive investment opportunity.

Element 25 Limited (ASX: E25) is developing Australia’s largest onshore manganese resource at the Company’s 100% owned world-class Butcherbird Project to produce high-purity manganese products for the battery revolution. We learned from Justin Brown, who is Executive Director of Element 25, that they have developed a flow sheet, which allows them to process their manganese ore into high-purity manganese products, including electrolytic manganese metal, electro-manganese dioxide and high-purity manganese sulfate for lithium ion batteries. Earlier this year, the company completed a scoping study, which highlighted the robust economics of development of the project, and it is currently about six months into a pre-feasibility study that is due in the third quarter of 2019. Element 25 has hit important permitting milestones, and is making good progress in the metallurgical test work and process optimization. We learned from Mr. Brown that traditionally manganese is used in steel making, but now there's a growing demand for high-purity manganese for use in lithium ion batteries. According to Mr. Brown, the company is looking to attract off-take partners and cornerstone investors.

Giga Metals Corp. (TSX.V: GIGA, FSE: BRR2): Becoming a Premier Supplier of the Key Battery Metals for Electric Vehicles: Nickel and Cobalt, Mark Jarvis, President and CEO Interviewed
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


Giga Metals Corporation (TSX.V: GIGA, FSE: BRR2) aims to be a premier supplier of the key battery metals for electric vehicles: Nickel and Cobalt. The Company's Turnagain Project, located in north central British Columbia, is among the largest undeveloped nickel-cobalt sulfide deposits in the world in terms of total contained nickel. The NI 43-101 compliant resource contains 4.1 billion pounds of nickel and 252 million pounds of cobalt in the measured and indicated categories, plus a further 4.3 billion pounds of nickel and 279 million pounds of cobalt in the inferred resource category. We learned from Mark Jarvis, President and CEO of Giga Metals, that they have recently closed a NSR transaction with Cobalt 27, in which Cobalt 27 bought a 2% net smelter return in Turnagain Project for a million dollars U.S. in cash, plus 1.125 million shares of Cobalt 27. We learned from Mr. Jarvis that while currently the Turnagain is a huge low-grade open-pitable nickel and cobalt sulphide project, Giga Metals has identified high-impact exploration targets that could be the roots of the system where they hope to find the massive high-grade sulphides. The drilling of the targets is underway as part of the 2018 drill campaign. Near term plans include getting the project ready to pre-feasibility by the third quarter of next year.
