dynaCERT’s revenues begin to ramp up exponentially as a global solution provider for pollution reduction

COVID-19 has shown us what a world without air pollution can be like. As economies reopen and pollution returns, governments and individuals will be demanding greater emissions reductions. China and Europe are already leading the way in 2020 with policies to reduce emissions.

The COVID-19 lockdown resulted in a massive drop in air pollution across China and globally

dynaCERT has the following global partners/dealers:

  • Mosolf – Has installations & 23 showrooms throughout Europe. Distribution channels in Germany, France, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Poland, Czech Republic.
  • Farhi Holdings – Distributor for Brazil & Israel.
  • H2 Tek – 43 active mining conversations, 15 trial negotiations, 6 trials. Mining projects in: Canada, USA, Peru, Chile, Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, Argentina, Russia, Mongolia, and Australia.
  • KarbonKleen – Financing for Mexico assembly with an MOU for 1,000,000 units. KarbonKleen was recently awarded the exclusive dealership rights in the trucking industry in the USA until December 31, 2024 (subject to certain quotas of a minimum of 150,000 HydraGEN Technology units over a little more than 3 years).

Brian Semkiw, KarbonKleen’s Chairman & CEO, stated: “In the past few months, some of the largest fleets in North America have been piloting HydraGEN Technology. These fleets have been experiencing the benefits of the reduced emissions, increased performance and fuel savings across all users and we expect a vibrant expansion of the pilot programmes to full fleet deployment with the subsiding of the Coronavirus pandemic. This investment by DISH and our partnership with Velociti will enable us to meet the anticipated demand with the delivery and maintenance professionalism that large fleets demand.”

Ranked #1 Company across all sectors on the 2020 TSX Venture 50 in February, dynaCERT recently announced (May 14) that they had received conditional approval to graduate to the Toronto Stock Exchange. This is a significant milestone and a plus for the company and its investors as it now allows greater exposure for potential future buyers including institutional investors.

Jean-Pierre Colin, Executive Vice President of dynaCERT, stated: “Graduating to the TSX represents a significant milestone in our efforts to broaden our appeal to a larger shareholder base, including institutional investors, and raise the Company’s profile among the investment community. We expect this graduation to further enhance the liquidity of our stock and enable us to continue building long-term shareholder value.”

As dynaCERT’s revenues are set to grow exponentially from just C$1 million in 2019 to a forecast C$62 million in 2020, and C$224 million in 2021 — dynaCERT is now at a stage of monetizing their many years of R&D.

With a growing customer base and global partners/dealers dynaCERT should now see a constant ramp up in product orders starting now. The KarbonKleen Mexico MOU for 1 million units and US trucking dealership (150,000 minimum units), the Mosolf European dealership, combined with Farhi Holdings and H2 Tek give a broad and growing global reach to sell dynaCERT’s products, thereby fast tracking sales.

After a rapid rise in 2019, dynaCERT’s stock price has pulled back recently due to the COVID-19 sell off thereby allowing investors who may have missed earlier opportunities a chance to enter at an attractive valuation. The market cap is still only C$145 million, with an analyst’s consensus target price of C$2.00, representing 208% upside, investor Eric Sprott “jumped onboard” as an investor earlier this year.




Fission Uranium stock climbs 78% as uranium prices skyrocket the past 3 weeks

With all the media attention focused on COVID-19 (coronavirus), it is easy to have missed what has happened to uranium. The uranium price has skyrocketed the past 3 weeks up about 20% from the mid-March lows, Dev Randhawa commented that perhaps we may credit the interest to the fact that 54% of the U.S. monthly uranium supply has gone off line due to the COVID-19 crisis.

One uranium miner that has spiked ~78% higher the past two weeks is Fission Uranium Corp. (TSX: FCU | OTCQX: FCUUF). Fission is a Canadian company with an exciting uranium project in the Athabasca Basin of Saskatchewan, Canada.

The Athabasca Basin is a region in the Canadian Shield of northern Saskatchewan and Alberta Canada. It is best known as the world’s leading source of high-grade uranium and currently supplies about 20% of the world’s uranium.

Fission Uranium Corp.

Fission Uranium Corp. owns the award winning, high-grade, and near-surface Triple R uranium deposit on its 100% owned Patterson Lake South (PLS) property, located in Canada’s Athabasca Basin, home to the world’s richest uranium mines.

The Company has the strategic backing of China’s CGN Mining, which has invested over $82 million in Fission, at a substantial premium, in early 2016.

Patterson Lake South (PLS) property

The PLS property comprises 17 mineral claims totaling 31,039 ha located on the southwest margin of the Athabasca Basin. The property is accessible by all-weather Highway 955 which runs right through the middle of the property.

The Patterson Lake South (PLS) property is situated in the high uranium grade Athabasca Basin region in Canada

The Triple R Deposit (the main deposit so far discovered on the PLS property)

The Triple R deposit is the most significant high-grade, near-surface project in the region. Fission has also discovered two other major, high-grade zones and has outlined the largest mineralized trend in the region.

Actually the Triple R Deposit is made up of not 3, but 5, mineralized uranium deposits.

Fission Uranium’s Triple R Deposit and uranium Resource estimate

The Triple R Resource estimate

The Triple R Resource estimate is as follows:

  • 102,360,000 lbs. U3O8 Indicated Mineral Resource, based on 2,216,000 tonnes at an average grade of 2.10% U3O8.
  • 32,810,000 lbs. U3O8 Inferred Mineral Resource, based on 1,221,000 tonnes at an average grade of 1.22% U3O8.

The Triple R deposit remains open, and the PLS property has untapped exploration potential as ~80% of the property is yet to be explored.

The Company states:

“The Triple R deposit is the only high-grade deposit in the entire Athabasca Basin region with substantial high-grade mineralization starting just 50m from surface. The deposit, which is part of a 3.18km mineralized trend at PLS, remains open in several directions.”

The Triple R Pre-Feasibility Study (PFS) results

In 2019, the Company released results of two PFS studies. The results are highlighted below.

  • Hybrid approach (Open pit & underground) PFS – Post-tax NPV8% of C$693 million, post-tax IRR of 21%, initial CapEx of C$1,499 million. Operating costs were estimated at C$9.03/lb U3O8 over an 8.2 year mine life.
  • Underground-only mine PFS – Post-tax NPV8% of C$702 million, post-tax IRR of 25%, initial CapEx of C$1,177 million. Operating costs were estimated at C$9.57/lb U3O8 over a 7 year mine life.

The Company stated:

“Both studies presented strong results, including low OpEx, fast payback and strong IRR, which highlight the potential for highly economic production at PLS. While both options remain viable, the upcoming Feasibility Study will focus on the best option, most likely the underground only scenario.”

My view is that if the Company can successfully grow the resource further which appears highly likely; then the NPV can substantially improve as the mine life would be extended out towards 20 years plus. In that case, the large upfront CapEx will become less of an obstacle towards project funding.

Latest News

  • Fission announces the closing of a US$10 million credit facility with Sprott. Fission will use the proceeds from the Facility to fund development of the Patterson Lake South uranium project (the “Project”) and for general working capital purposes. In connection with the Facility, Fission has agreed to issue 20,666,667 common share purchase warrants (“Warrants”) to Sprott and its affiliates at an exercise price equivalent to C$0.17. The credit facility is US$10 million at 10% for 4 years.

Next steps

Fission will soon begin work on the Environmental Assessment (“EA”) phase for its’ PLS property, as well as a Feasibility Study as discussed above.

Closing remarks

Fission Uranium has a high grade, shallow, and large uranium resource at the Triple R deposit on its PLS property in Northern Canada. The Indicated Resource is 102,360,000 lbs. of U3O8 at 2.10% U3O8, plus 32,810,000 lbs. of U3O8 Inferred at 1.22% U3O8. This alone is impressive; however represents less than ~80% of the property which is yet to be explored. Meaning there is very significant exploration upside.

The 2019 PFS results were solid, but a higher NPV and a lower CapEx would make the project more appealing. Usually this is achieved as mining companies further grow their resource and progress towards funding.




Wayne Tisdale on the palladium shortage and Eric Sprott’s investment in Canadian Palladium Resources

In an InvestorIntel interview during PDAC 2020, Peter Clausi secures an interview update with President & Director Wayne Tisdale on Canadian Palladium Resources Inc. (CSE: BULL | OTCQB: DCNNF), an exploration company focused on the acquisition and development of deposits of production grade metal which are critical components to current and future vehicle technology.

Wayne said, “When I first looked at it (palladium), I did some research and realized the shortage that was coming. It has hit an all-time high of over US$2,800/oz.” He continued by saying that even the coronavirus outbreak didn’t have much effect on palladium as the metal is still trading high.

Palladium is a vital metal for the 21st Century which many analysts agree will remain in a supply deficit for at least 7 years. Growth of the electric/hybrid vehicle market and strengthening global emissions regulations are both going to drive demand.

Canadian Palladium has announced drill results from its East Bull Palladium Property which has an inferred resource of 523,000 oz with potential target of 4 times the current resource. The company got financed itself in January this year with Mr. Eric Sprott also investing in the company.

dynaCERT price surges 100% over the past ~2 months as Eric Sprott jumps onboard

dynaCERT Inc.‘s (TSXV: DYA | OTCQB: DYFSF) stock price is surging. Since I last wrote on them back on November 15, 2019, the stock price has surged higher by 100% (from C$0.48 to C$0.96). You can read that article here. In this article, I take a look at some of the reasons for the price surge and can it keep going.

dynaCERT’s flagship product ‘HydraGEN™’ reduces fuel use by up to 20% and carbon emissions by over 50%. Transportation that uses diesel urgently needs ‘HydraGEN™’ to reduce emissions as China and Europe tightened emission standards from January 1, 2020.

dynaCERT (TSXV: DYA) stock price surging higher

Why has dynaCERT stock surged by 100% over the past 2 months

There are several reasons for the stock price surge.

1. On November 28 it was announced that an entity controlled by Eric Sprott became a ‘significant new shareholder’. Effectively the Sprott entity bought 28,000,000 units at $0.50 per unit ($14,000,000). Each Unit consists of one (1) common share (a “Share”) and one-half (1/2) of one common share purchase warrant (exercisable at $0.65), on or before November 26, 2021.

Mr. Eric Sprott stated:

“dynaCERT presents an unusual once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to participate at the commercial stage of what is a proven and compelling transformative technology to reduce carbon emissions in diesel engines, globally. I support the successful international mission of dynaCERT and I see this new investment as a means to participate in the important world-wide demand for Carbon Credits resulting from socially-conscious users of mining equipment, trucking, transportation and power generation.”

2. DynaCERT announced a Strategic Investment by Mosolf in Europe. Mosolf SE & CO. AG  (“MOSOLF”), a significant European dealer of dynaCERT is making a strong and strategic financial commitment to the Company with the expansion of dealer operations across Germany and neighboring European countries. As well, Dr. Joerg Mosolf, President and Chief Executive Officer of MOSOLF, has made an additional personal equity investment of $1 million. Dr. Joerg Mosolf advises that MOSOLF has already hired twenty-three (23) new employees dedicated 100% full-time to the marketing, sales and installations of dynaCERT’s HydraGEN™ Technology in Germany, France, Benelux and Poland.

3. On January 1, 2020 the new European tougher emissions standards commenced. Added to this is China’s ramping up of their NEV credit scheme in 2020. From January 1, 2020, car manufacturers in both Europe and China need to significantly reduce emissions or face huge fines. One report estimates these fines could reach 34 billion euros (~US$37.5 billion) just in Europe if car manufacturers don’t rapidly reduce emissions.

Clearly all these events combined to send the stock price 100% higher the past 2 months. My closing comment back in the November article was:

“2020 will be a remarkable year for dynaCERT as Europe, China and others make significant moves to reduce vehicle emissions. The past week of new orders and deals should be just a warm up for 2020.”

dynaCERT – ‘Driving for a better future’

What’s next for dynaCERT?

The MOSOLF dealership should boost European orders. MOSOLF is one of the largest truck servicing companies in Europe. MOSOLF has agreed to purchase one thousand HydraGEN units in 2020. Targeting Europe in 2020 is a great move, and perhaps China will be next.

dynaCERT has ~40 dealers around the world selling their products to small and large truck owners, fleets, and government organizations that use diesel engines. With a billion diesel engines in the world, and 100 million new diesel engines built worldwide every year; dynaCERT’s green emission technology is in big demand.

dynaCERT’s target markets

There is no doubt the 2020s will bring huge business for innovative companies such as dynaCERT given the global push towards greener energy and less harmful emissions. dynaCERT has already expanded into the large key markets such as Canada, USA, South America, Europe, South Asia, and the Middle East. 2020 should see further orders and global expansion as more and more countries seek to reduce emissions.

dynaCERT now has a market cap of C$323 million, so given the enormous market opportunity, there is still potential for plenty more upside. The latest analysts estimate target price is C$2.00, representing 108% upside.




The Prophecy Development of a “massive” historical silver producing mine is attracting investors

Silver gets little attention compared to gold, but silver often follows gold. With gold up significantly in 2019, and silver starting to catch up, investors would be wise to look again at some silver miners. One in particular is set to soar as it has definitely flown under most investors radar, and appears to be very undervalued. This stock has had a great 2019, drawing in the attention of Eric Sprott as a significant investor.

Prophecy Development Corp. (TSX: PCY | OTCQX: PRPCF) specializes in mine permitting, construction, and operations. Prophecy is developing the massive Pulacayo-Paca Silver Project in Bolivia and the Gibellini Vanadium Project in Nevada. The Company is managed by mine builders with a combined 100 years plus of industry experience.

The Pulacayo-Paca Silver Project in Bolivia

Prophecy acquired the project in 2015 at the bottom of the silver cycle when silver was priced at US$14/oz. According to Prophecy: “Based on historical production the mine is the second largest silver mine in the world.” It is very well advanced with over 95,000 meters of drilling, a Feasibility Study, and is fully environmentally compliant.

Executed on October 3, 2019 the Pulacayo-Paca Mining Production Contract between Prophecy and the Bolivian government grants Prophecy the 100% exclusive right to develop and mine at the concessions for up to 30 years. This is comparable to a mining license in Canada or the United States.

John Lee, Executive Chairman of Prophecy Development Corp., stated: “It is only recently that we started the program on this wonderful silver project called Pulacayo in Bolivia.”

Pulacayo in Bolivia is a world premiere silver address

Resource details at Pulacayo-Paca 

The Pulacayo deposit currently has a NI43-101 compliant Resource of 2.08 million tonnes at 455 g/t Ag, 2.18% Pb, 3.19% Zn in the Indicated category. It also has 0.48 million tonnes at 406 g/t Ag, 2.08% Pb, 3.93% Zn in the Inferred category. Company estimates put the contained metal in the Indicated category at 30.4 million ounces of silver, 100 million pounds of lead, and 146.3 million pounds of zinc. Estimates in the Inferred category are 6.3 million ounces of silver, 22.0 million pounds of lead, and 41.6 million pounds of zinc.

The Paca deposit has contained 20.9 million ounces of silver in the Inferred category.

Pulacayo-Paca NI43-101 compliant Resource summary

According to historical underground mining records the current Pulacayo Resource covers 1.4 km in strike and represents only a small portion of the Tajo vein system which is over 3 km in strike length and open to least 1,000 meters at depth.

Phase two drilling has started on a 5,000-meter program that will consist mainly of wide step-out drilling up to 1.5km west (Western Block) of the current Pulacayo Resource.

Joaquin Merino, Prophecy’s VP for South American Operation, states: “Current artisanal mining at the surface serves as strong evidence that the Tajo vein projects to surface at the Western Block (underground mining took place from early 1800 to 1952). Pulacayo is a very large system and with this program we will test the boundaries of mineralization near the surface and its continuity along strike.”

Recent drill results at the Paca Silver Project were very good

Phase one diamond drilling results from Prophecy’s 100% controlled Paca Silver Project located 7km north of Pulacayo were reported in October. Borehole PND 110 intersected 89 meters grading 378 g/t Ag-Equivalent (“AgEq;” 279 g/t Ag, 1.28% Zn, 1.17% Pb) starting from 9 meters downhole, including 12 meters grading 1,085 g/t Ag starting at just 16 meters downhole. The Pulacayo-Paca drill program is fully funded with a recent $3.9 million equity financing backed by Mr. Eric Sprott.

Prophecy’s Gibellini Vanadium Project continues to progress

Prophecy Development Corp. (through its wholly owned US subsidiary Nevada Vanadium) has submitted the applications and Engineering Design Reports to the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection for the primary mining permits that govern project construction, operations and closure of its Gibellini Vanadium Project located in Eureka County, Nevada, USA. With the support of federal and state regulators the Prophecy team is actively engaging all stakeholders in order to obtain all the state and federal permits required to begin construction of North America’s first primary vanadium mine and will represent the starting point of a well defined 12 month process.

Prophecy appears very undervalued to peers

Not only is Prophecy very undervalued relative to peers, Prophecy offers investors a very large high grade poly-metallic opportunity (silver, vanadium, and some zinc and lead) with plenty of exploration upside at both the Pulacayo-Paca Silver Project in Bolivia and the Gibellini Vanadium Project in Nevada.

Prophecy Development Corp. is based in Vancouver Canada; and has a market cap of C$ 38 million. The analyst target price is $13.50, representing a massive upside. It seems legendary miner, Eric Sprott, also sees the potential, suggesting investors should also take a long look at Prophecy.
