Cornish Lithium in Cornwall UK Exploring Almost Untapped, Mining Province to Produce a Lithium Supply for the UK and Europe: Interview with Jeremy Wrathall, Founder and CEO
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


Jeremy Wrathall, Founder and CEO of Cornish Lithium www.cornishlithium.com tells us more about the first crowd-funded mining company in the UK. Lithium in brine was first identified in Cornwall in 1864 and even then was identified as a source that could have great commercial significance. Demand for lithium in Europe is rapidly rising and the region is expected to become the second largest source of demand in the world. The fact that there is currently no commercial source of battery grade lithium is of great concern to European automakers, making the region totally dependent on imports. Given that lithium has been identified in both brine and hardrock in Cornwall, Jeremy is very excited about the potential that his projects have to supply the UK and Europe. He believes that “Cornish Lithium has a unique opportunity, here in the UK, to explore in one of the best, almost untapped, mining provinces of the world and to produce a lithium supply for the UK and possibly for Europe as well.” Cornish Lithium has a large role to play in the UK lithium market and is a Company to watch.

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


Ascot Resources Ltd. (TSX: AOT, OTCQX:AOTVF)
, a Vancouver based, junior exploration company, is focused on re-starting the past-producing, historic, Premier gold mine, once North America’s largest gold mine, located in British Columbia’s Golden Triangle. We learned from Derek White, President and CEO of Ascot, that after the acquisition of the Red Mountain and the Silver Coin projects, the Company has about 12 million tons of 50% measured and indicated and 50% inferred high-grade gold resource, around 7.7 to 7.8 grams of gold per ton and about 21 to 22 grams of silver per ton. Near term, Ascot is actively working on upgrading the resources and then converting into either proven or probable reserves. According to Mr. White, what differentiates Ascot is its ability to restart mining, at a very low capital cost, because of the low volume and high-grade nature of the resource and the infrastructure that is already in place. Plans for 2020 include completing feasibility study and permitting, and then financing to restart the mine.

Chalice Gold (ASX: CHN, TSX: CXN, OTCQB: CGMLF): Portfolio of District-Scale Gold and Nickel Sulfide Exploration Projects, in High-Grade Mining Regions of Australia; Interview with Alex Dorsch, Managing Director
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


Chalice Gold Mines (ASX: CHN, TSX: CXN, OTCQB: CGMLF)
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. We learned from Alex Dorsch, Managing Director of Chalice, that multiple well-timed asset sales have positioned them in a strong and unique financial position for a small exploration company. Since 2012, Chalice has returned about a third of that profit to its shareholders, while still keeping ~30 million AUD in working capital. 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. The Company's team is made-up of highly credentialed mining executives, who have made discoveries and run successful mining companies before.

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


High-Purity Quartz Ltd (HPQ)
, who is exhibiting and presenting at IMARC 2019, is aiming to be a new entrant into the global high-purity quartz-sand market, with near term plans to join a very limited group of High-Purity quartz-sand producers to supply manufacturers of ultra-High-Purity applications, such as optics, Solar PV wafers and Semiconductor wafers.

We learned from Stuart Jones, CEO of HPQ, that Solar PV and Semiconductor manufacturing are fast growing industries, and they cannot manufacture without high-purity quartz-sand. There is currently only one main producing source of high-purity quartz-sands in the world, which is a supply concentration risk for the downstream manufacturers in China, Japan and elsewhere. According to Mr. Jones, the Company's flagship Sugarbag Hill high-purity quartz-mine in Queensland, Australia, once developed, is in a strong position to supply high-purity quartz materials to the green-tech, high-tech markets for decades to come.
