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


GT Gold Corp. (TSX-V: GTT), https://www.gtgoldcorp.ca/
is focused on exploring for base and precious metals in Canada's Golden Triangle. The Company’s flagship asset is the wholly-owned, 46,827 hectare, Tatogga property, located near Iskut, BC, upon which it achieved two significant discoveries in 2017 and 2018, at its Saddle prospect: a near surface bulk-tonnage and potential deep high-grade, underground-style, epithermal gold-silver vein system, at Saddle South and, close by at Saddle North, a large-scale, richly mineralized porphyry gold-copper-silver intrusion. We learned from Paul Harbidge, President, CEO and Director of GT Gold, that their discoveries are brand new greenfield exploration discoveries, near the road and a hydro power line, with the cheapest electricity in Canada. Near-term plans include building geological model in Q1 of 2020 that will form the foundation for an initial NI 43101 compliant resource estimate in Q2 2020, and that will lead onto a PEA by approximately Q4 in 2020.

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.
