Don Bubar on the renewed concern about the security of supply of rare earths in the global markets

“There is a lot of renewed concern about the security of supply of rare earths in the global markets. The supply chain was not well established outside of China ten years ago. Never really did get established in a meaningful way except for Lynas Corporation of Australia. Now with growing demand from both inside and outside of China, there is a real concern about the security of supply. That concern is legitimate. There simply is not enough supply to meet forecast demand for rare earth magnets for all the new applications and clean technology.” States Don Bubar, President, CEO and Director of Avalon Advanced Materials Inc. (TSX: AVL | OTCQB: AVLNF), in an interview with InvestorIntel’s Tracy Weslosky.

Don went on to discuss Avalon’s collaborative development agreement with Cheetah Resources on the Nechalacho Rare Earth Elements Project with focus on magnet rare earths. He said the Avalon is trying to get operations established at a small scale, without large capital requirements. Prove that we can make a product that is acceptable at the market and has outlets for refining. Once we have done that, then look at how to scale up the business. Don also said that 10 years ago there was a lot of emphasis on heavy rare earths but right now almost all the emphasis is on the magnet rare earths which is principally two light rare earths, neodymium and praseodymium.

Enthusiast Gaming spectators offer investors an opportunity to capitalize on eSports

The video gaming industry’s media audience goes beyond just the players of video games; there is now a robust audience of non-player spectators as well. This considerably shifts the dynamics of media in the eSports space making it similar to the media ecosystems of traditional sports, and creating correspondingly profitable business opportunities.

Toronto-Based Enthusiast Gaming Holdings Inc. (“Enthusiast Gaming”) (TSXV: EGLX | OTCQB: EGHIF) has taken an ambitious approach to rounding up these audiences between owned and affiliated media, YouTube channels, and a convention that had over 55,000 people attending in 2018, making it one of the market leaders in digital media for video gaming. Its platform represents more than 80 websites reaching 75 million monthly visitors, as well as 900 YouTube channels reaching 50 million additional monthly visitors.

Strategically Partnering with and Acquiring Channels

Enthusiast Gaming has built a respectable portfolio of media assets through partnerships and acquisitions. At the beginning of 2019, Enthusiast Gaming announced a partnership with US-based Omnia Media Inc. (“Omnia”), to exclusively represent all of Omnia’s online gaming traffic in the United States, through Omnia’s multi-channel YouTube network which, across 900 channels, has 50 million monthly visitors and a base of more than 400 million subscribers.

In November 2018, Enthusiast Gaming acquired Operation Sports LLC (“Operation Sports”), which operates a leading web portal for eSports and video game content. Under Enthusiast Gaming’s ownership, the subscriber base of Operation Sports grew by more than 100,000 users, bringing the total subscriber base to over one million users as of March 20, 2019.

In-Person Engagement

Part of how Enthusiast Gaming has built its audience organically is by cultivating engagement through its flagship convention Enthusiast Gaming Live Expo (“EGLX”). Its first iteration in 2015 saw 1,700 attendees, growing to 12,000 attendees in 2017, followed by 24,000 attendees in March 2018, and 30,000 attendees in October 2018. EGLX is the largest gaming expo in Canada, and the event has sponsors that include Bell Canada, Nintendo, World Gaming, LG, and eBay. Enthusiast Gaming is contemplating expanding EGLX to other North American cities in light of significant growth in the video gaming sector.

Diversified Base of Revenues

Enthusiast Gaming generates earnings through a number of revenue categories. Video content attracts advertising payments, and EGLX produces revenue from show admissions, exhibitor booths, and show sponsors. Paid user subscriptions are another form of revenue for Enthusiast Gaming. For example, Enthusiast Gaming acquired The Sims Resource in January 2019, which generated approximately CAD $2.8 million in subscription payments in 2018, making up about 40% of its revenue.

Enthusiast Gaming Holdings Inc. has a current market cap of CAD $57.60 million and commenced public trading on the TSX Venture through an IPO on October 4th, 2018 with a closing price of CAD $1.07. TSXV: EGLX closed April 4th 2019 at a price of CAD $1.25, up 16.82% since inception.




Galane Gold’s Nick Brodie on gold production target updates for 2019

“We have two assets. One is already in production. Last year we had best year since 2013, produced 36,000 ounces at all in sustaining cost of $1,050, so cash positive. This year we have a new asset coming online in South Africa called Galaxy Gold and that will be in production next month. We are producing about 9,000 ounces from that this year, but we are ramping up and should be in full production at the end of the year, so next year about 26,000 ounces. We are targeting about 60,000 ounces for next year…” States Nick Brodie, CEO and Director of Galane Gold Ltd. (TSXV: GG), in an interview with InvestorIntel’s Tracy Weslosky.

Tracy Weslosky: You did such a good job a few seconds ago telling me about your competitive advantages. Could you please share that with InvestorIntel audience please?

Nick Brodie: We have two assets. One is already in production. Last year we had best year since 2013, produced 36,000 ounces at all in sustaining cost of $1,050, so cash positive. This year we have a new asset coming online in South Africa called Galaxy Gold and that will be in production next month. We are producing about 9,000 ounces from that this year, but we are ramping up and should be in full production at the end of the year, so next year about 26,000 ounces. We are targeting about 60,000 ounces for next year and a year after that we are looking at expanding again and hopefully be at 90,000 ounces producing in about three years time.

Tracy Weslosky: For all of you InvestorIntel audience members that made so money in cannabis last year, I am trying to get you to diversify and look at gold. One of the things you want to look at are of course are the near producers because obviously if you do that successfully you generally have an uptick. Is that correct?

Nick Brodie: We are highly leveraged to gold. So, if you think you are gold bull, it is a great time to invest in us and top of that you have got the uptick of our organic growth of 90,000 ounces and we are already fully funded. So, there is no need to dilute or go to the market or anything like that to raise further funds…to access the complete interview, click here.




Randy Hoback on the best mining jurisdiction in Canada – Saskatchewan.

Recently during PDAC 2019, Randy Hoback, Member of Parliament for Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, shared why Saskatchewan is ranked high amongst mining jurisdictions with InvestorIntel’s Peter Clausi.

Randy said: “Mining companies have recognized that if they do a project in Saskatchewan they can go through the entire process and actually get to the point of building a mine. There are regulatory things that they have to do, but we have seen companies like BHP Billiton just do the Jansen Project, you see the potash mines, uranium mines and here are examples where they have actually explored, done the work and now they are actually physically running mines. The First Nations are very excited about the mining sector. They do not view it as a negative thing and they actively participate in the mining sector.”

Angkor Gold’s Burega on diversifying into oil and gas in Cambodia

“We are going to continue with the hardrock side, but we have decided that we are going to move into oil and gas as well in Cambodia. We are in the process of finalizing our first application with the Cambodian government for an onshore oil block. That is going to run in parallel with our hardrock assets. We still have approximately 1,000 square kms on five licenses four of which are in partnership currently. Our model of a project generator continues, its just that we are expanding in the oil and gas side as well because we see great potential there.” States Stephen Burega, CEO of Angkor Gold Corp. (TSXV: ANK), in an interview with InvestorIntel’s Tracy Weslosky.

Tracy Weslosky: I understand that you are kind of changing the direction for Angkor. Can you tell us a bit more about that?

Stephen Burega: More so adding to directions for Angkor. We are going to continue with the hardrock side, but we have decided that we are going to move into oil and gas as well in Cambodia. We are in the process of finalizing our first application with the Cambodian government for an onshore oil block. That is going to run in parallel with our hardrock assets. We still have approximately 1,000 square kms on five licenses four of which are in partnership currently. Our model of a project generator continues, its just that we are expanding in the oil and gas side as well because we see great potential there.

Tracy Weslosky: Can you tell us a little bit more about Cambodia because not all of us understand the opportunity that is there right now.

Stephen Burega: Cambodia’s advantage is the fact that there are operations both on hardrock and oil and gas on all sides of the country. In Thailand, Laos as well as in Vietnam we see production in hardrock side, large scale base metal operations, precious metals as well as offshore and onshore gas production. When we arrived in Cambodia ten years ago none of that potentials were identified and we are looking at taking advantage. As the first mover in the country we are moving towards bringing now onshore oil potential into our shareholder base…to access the complete interview, click here
