Searchlight Resources 5 projects summary

Bootleg Lake region – Flin Flon North Project (North Saskatchewan)

Searchlight Resources has recently entered into an option agreement with a private Saskatchewan company, GEM Oil Inc., to earn a 100% interest in two claims located near Creighton, Saskatchewan. Known as the Flin Flon North project, it fits the Company’s targeted strategy of easy access, with access via nearby Highway 106 running through it. The new Project comprises two mineral claims totaling 5,644.7 hectares within a 90 year historical mining camp containing copper, zinc, and gold. Located near Creighton, Saskatchewan and just 10 kilometers northwest of the city of Flin Flon, Manitoba, the project claims are within 10 km of four mines belonging to Hudbay Minerals, that has accounted for over 110 million tonnes of past production. The Flin Flon Greenstone belt also lays claim to over 15 past and currently producing gold and base metal mines all within 25 kilometers of the new Flin Flon North Project.

Stephen Wallace, President, and CEO of Searchlight stated: “The Flin Flon North claims were optioned based on Searchlight’s ongoing regional compilation to target the most prospective areas in the Flin Flon Greenstone belt for new VMS base metal and gold mines.”

Kulyk Lake Rare Earth Project (Saskatchewan)

Searchlight Resources recently also announced the staking of a 592.8 hectare claim covering the high grade Kulyk Lake Rare Earth target in north central Saskatchewan. Historically the area had been explored for uranium, that was followed up by preliminary rare earth exploration when rare earth prices spiked in 2009 and 2010. Using the Company’s systematic evaluation of exploration targets in Saskatchewan, Searchlight acquired the project as past claims had expired.

A small number of channel samples were collected in 2009. This resulted in a grab sample of 56.18% Total Rare Earth Oxides, including 12.49% Critical Rare Earth Oxides. In addition, the claim block covers 7 additional rare earth, uranium and thorium showings and sample locations representing a high potential exploration target for Searchlight Resources.

Searchlight Resources Inc. is following a sound defined strategy in targeting high value, low cost projects, in safe and accessible jurisdictions in North America. If successful this strategy should pay off patient shareholders, especially given the current extremely low company valuation.

    By pretending that thorium is a payable instead of a liability you can “promote”‘ deposits that are never going to be permitted.

    Anything rare earths today is utilized for promotion. You get the sense of 2010 -11 re., the hype, although there are many other factors today that also help to distinguish the past from the present.

      The most revealing thing about the rare earths is the fact that all of the articles published about supply chain issues between 2010 and 2013 could simply be re-dated and published today without any further editing. The demands of the U.S. DoD are still too small for a free market grouping of companies to undertake. The Chinese stranglehold monopoly and monopsony on rare earth enabled devices is still in place. It shows just how devastating globalization has been for security of supply. What a greed-driven mistake that has been.

    Certainly from US perspective Jack, and not merely DoD’s 1% of US’s 9% of global demand but US 17% of total China NdFeB demand, suggests US not even making the motors anymore in any volume.

    Japan has built a strong alternate supply chain, soon to be complete, the Germans have vacillated for much of that time but now moving quite aggressively though still heavily dependent China (EU 52% NdFeB exports), remains to be seen if they have left their run too late.

    Difficulty investors have is identifying the very few pure play points of leverage, another round of hysteria will not assist.
