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


Lomiko Metals Inc. (TSX-V: LMR, LMRMF, FSE: DH8B)
is a Canadian-based, exploration-stage company, that discovered high-grade graphite at its La Loutre Property in Quebec and is working toward a Pre-Economic Assessment (PEA) that will increase its current indicated resource of 4.1 Mt of 6.5% Cg to over 10 Mt of 10%+ Cg. We learned from Paul Gill, CEO of Lomiko Metals, that the exploration has been completed and it is showing two different areas of deposits: the graphene battery zone and the refractory zone. The consolidated 43-101 resource estimate is expected soon. According to Mr. Gill, the material at Lomiko's discovery is of similar or better quality than the material at the Imerys Carbon Graphite Mine, 53 km to the Northwest and 100 kilometers from the Imerys processing facility at the Port of Montreal. The Imerys mine has a mine closure plan for 2022 and needs replacement. Located near a producing mine, with an experienced workforce, with excellent infrastructure and year around working capability, La Loutre property has great potential to become the next graphite mine.

High-Purity Quartz Ltd (HPQ) Supplying the Booming Solar PV and Semiconductor Industries; Interview with Stuart Jones, CEO
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. HPQ Ltd will export its products under an Offtake and Sales & Distribution Agreement, signed earlier this year, with Wogen Resources Limited. 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.
