Lithium partners Galaxy and General Mining forge alliance for multi-project push

Merger
The Australian lithium scene has been reshaped with the planner merger of partners in the Mt Cattlin mine, Galaxy Resources (ASX: GXY) and General Mining Corp (ASX: GMM) agreeing to a merger. Now they will work together on Galaxy's other projects in Argentina and Canada. To me the key point is this: the pro-forma market capitalization of the merged entity will be in excess of A$700 million,…

Largo boosts reserves as analyst predicts vanadium bounce

Largo
In mining, as in almost everything, it is a matter of timing. In times of depressed confidence, exploration and development often get put on the backburner, only for companies to be caught flat-footed when the cycle suddenly begins to turn upward. We saw a dramatic illustration of this a decade ago: the doldrums years of the 1990s left many players well behind the eight-ball; when the prices…

African governments fighting tax drainage – what does this mean for the Tenke deal?

shutterstock_337810856
The last 12 months has seen a notable pick up in interest in mining assets across Africa. Of specific interest are those transactions where the underlying asset resides in Africa, but where ownership is through an offshore listed entity, and payments, change of ownership, etc., all take place in a jurisdiction outside of Africa. A recent example of this is the sale of Tenke Fungurume (TFM) where…

AnthonyTse

In his presentation, Managing Director Anthony Tse explained Galaxy's duel strategy of having both hard rock and brine lithium assets — and ones spread over multiple locations (Australia, Quebec and Argentina). In this video presentation, Anthony Tse highlights his own company's achievements — such as reducing debt from about A$200 million to about $20 million — and gives a valuable insight into the global lithium…

Petersen on the Tesla Gigafactory and Model 3

Cartoon
In March of 2014, Tesla Motors raised $2.3 billion in convertible debt based on a quintessential Silicon Valley presentation (a/k/a back of a napkin) for a truly gargantuan lithium-ion battery manufacturing complex that would vertically integrate the entire lithium-ion battery value chain; make more cells in a year than all of the world's other lithium-ion battery factories combined; incorporate recycling technologies that don't yet exist at commercial…

Mt Marion: A Lithium Super-Pit in the Making?

Cornwall_pit_greenbushes
When the latest drill results produced by the partners of Neometals Ltd. (ASX: NMT) in the Mt Marion project crossed our desk last week we couldn’t help but be impressed by the length and the grade of the intercepts. The next thing that struck us was the depth so we shot off a query to the company as to whether this implied that an underground phase might be warranted.…

Petersen critiques Tesla’s cobalt, lithium and graphite disclosure for EV batteries

MS Table
It’s been a fascinating week as one of my readers forwarded copies of a May 12 Commodities Comment from Macquarie Wealth Management that focused on China’s recent efforts to shore up its cobalt supply chains and a May 16 report from Morgan Stanley that focused on expected growth in global demand for lithium, graphite, cobalt, and copper from the electric vehicle (EV) and lithium-ion battery sectors. After…

CTMS2016: The Davos of Specialty Metals – Revelations & Lessons Learnt

IMG_20160509_115118
This was the first CTMS (5th Annual Cleantech and Technology Metals Summit) conference I had been to, but all reports indicate the event is going from strength to strength. It certainly helped that Spring was in the air, both literally and metaphorically, with buzzy and busy markets lifting the pall of gloom that has descended over specialty metals since 2011. Maybe there was Lithium in the water but…

Mining giant may gain “Superman” lithium powers

Lithium
Just imagine if half of the world’s lithium carbonate market was controlled by only two companies. At this stage, 30% of the market is supplied by the Greenbushes mine in Western Australia, owned by Talison Lithium (which is 51% owned by China Chengdu Tianqui, the remainder by chemical giant Albermarle, which is based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana). What if another 20% chunk was controlled by global mining giant Rio Tinto, leaving the multitude of emerging lithium players to squabble over the remainder? Sound like Superman v. Lex…

Alkane and technology metals: setting an example of persistence

Alkane-Resources
“Listed on ASX since 1969,” says the presentation of Alkane Resources (ASX: ALK | OTCQX: ANLKY) at last week’s 5th Annual CleanTech and Technology Metals Summit in Toronto. And therein lies a tale: a tale that is not all that often replicated in the exploration industry. While looking over Alkane’s presentation this week, I glanced up at the screen at Tuesday morning’s announcements on the Australian Securities…

Lifton asks: is scandium the new gold?

IMG_20160510_104815
Last week’s Cleantech Conference in Toronto, organized by InvestorIntel, was a “hoot.” It was proof to me that in Canada, at least, the Festival of the Rare Earths has been put to rest. Prospector-Geologists with their grab sample based dreams of “pounds in the ground” wishes are simply gone. OK, there is still a whiff of rare-earth - it is in the air as a new crop…

Cobalt: The Bass Player in the Tesla Band

cobalt
Numbers are numbers and facts are facts: we make serious money when we figure out how those statistics could affect the future. For the past year, we've been haranguing about the global shortage of cobalt. We're not alone in this. See John Petersen's series of beautifully analytical data-driven articles and Chris Ecclestone's thesis. The key facts you need to know: roughly 97% of the world's supply of…

Lithium as the New Gasoline?

signumbox
The self-created mythology that Goldman Sachs invented the BRIC economies has now been found to be a fallacious construct. The fact that many actually thought the plural of the Brazil-Russia-India-China acronym, that basket-case South Africa on the tail-end, shows how nebulous and “in the eye of the beholder” the whole thing was. However, despite its faults BRIC set the tone for a decade and a half of…

Lithium and Zimbabwe: a heady brew

In 1980 The Times of London reported from the newly independent Zimbabwe (it had once been the British colony of Southern Rhodesia) on the country's mineral resources. It said the state contained "the world's largest lithium resource", located in southern Zimbabwe at the Bikita tin field. At one stage the country was the fifth largest producer of lithium and exported to Europe, North America and Asia. The…
