Alf Stewart on Searchlight’s “very strong gold system” in Saskatchewan

“There is another gold property near Flin Flon…It has three former gold producers on it. It is at a driving distance from a major mining center in Canada. The main mine on the property was developed in the 1980s. They did 1.5 km of underground development and never produced. The gold price at that time was $350/oz. Today looking at the gold price. If we take $350 historical gold price in US dollars, convert into Canadian dollar today, it is around $900. But the gold price today is $2100 Canadian. Over twice the historical price when this property was developed.” States Alf Stewart of Searchlight Resources Inc. (TSXV: SCLT), in an interview with InvestorIntel’s Peter Clausi at PDAC 2020.

Alf also spoke on the English Bay property just outside of La Ronge, Saskatchewan. He said, “It is a very unique situation, privately developed, its never been in the public market and it looks like a very strong gold system. There are 37 drill holes on the property, 5000 meters of drilling. Of those 37 drill holes, 20 have intersected gold along a consistent 400 meter long zone.”

Nano One’s Dan Blondal on improving the performance, durability, and safety of lithium-ion batteries

“We use a process that is environmentally friendly, we have no waste stream, we combine all of the coating and crystallization and all of the preparation of nickel, manganese, and cobalt all into one step. So there are fewer steps, there’s less energy consumed, less waste, and results in a longer-lasting battery material that could lead to more durable battery.” States Dan Blondal, CEO, Director & Founder of Nano One Materials Corp. (TSXV: NNO), in an interview with InvestorIntel’s Ron Wortel at PDAC 2020.

Dan went on to say that Nano One has developed intellectual property and patents to make battery materials that can improve the performance, durability, and safety of batteries. Dan also spoke on Tesla’s million-mile battery. He said that Tesla has used cathode material supplied by a Chinese manufacturer in the battery. Dan continued, “Nano One has intellectual property and patents that have nanocrystalline coated material which is very much akin to what they were using except ours is commercially viable.” Dan also provided an update on Nano One’s other battery technologies. He said that the company is working on lithium iron phosphate batteries used in electric buses, grid storage, etc. Nano One is also working on cobalt-free battery material which is aimed at next-generation solid-state batteries.

Peter Clausi on social media and compliance for public companies

“Compliance and social media is really easy. People get carried away because it is a new platform of communicating but the old rules (of compliance in communication for public companies) still apply.” States Peter Clausi, InvestorIntel’s Advisor stated in an interview with InvestorIntel’s Tracy Weslosky during PDAC 2020.

Peter went on to say that public companies report on Sedar through press releases, financial statements, material change statements, etc. If a piece of information is in those documents, is factually true and has been publicly disclosed, companies can share it on social media. He also said that public companies should not share any news on social media before they have made an official public announcement.

Fission’s Dev Randhawa on the uranium market and the competitive advantages of location

“I believe there are only two places where you can make money. You got to be in Kazakhstan ISL which is working well or be in Canada because Canada has got jurisdiction and the Athabasca produces about 14% of the world’s production because they have grades 10 to 20 times global average. So you have to be in Canada but you need to be large…the thing that sets us apart is that our deposit is 50 meters from the surface. It is big, it is in Canada (Athabasca Basin region), has high grades making it easier to produce.” States Dev Randhawa, Chairman and CEO of Fission Uranium Corp. (TSX: FCU | OTCQX: FCUUF), in an interview with InvestorIntel’s Peter Clausi at PDAC 2020.

Dev went on to say that utilities are running short on inventories which is a global issue. Even defense no longer has as much uranium they used to have and is running the risk of submarines running out of energy in the middle of the ocean. The Trump Administration has decided to set aside $150 million a year for 10 years for establishing U.S. uranium reserve. Dev continued, “When there is a turn in the uranium industry it happens very quickly.” About 20% of Fission Uranium is owned by CGN Mining which Dev said, “is the mothership of our industry.”

Pelangio’s Ingrid Hibbard on the Detour Lake Gold Mine

“In 1998, at the bottom of the market, we saw an opportunity to buy the Detour Lake Mine and all the land around it for less then a dollar an ounce in ground. It had 1.4 million ounce resource and we bought it for a million dollars. We got Franco-Nevada to be our joint-venture partner. We envisioned it to be a big pit and as it got to be a development story, we found the right team and spun out the Detour project to Detour Gold. They built it to be the behemoth it is now.” States Ingrid Hibbard, President and CEO of Pelangio Exploration Inc. (TSXV: PX), in an interview with InvestorIntel’s Peter Clausi at PDAC 2020.

Ingrid went on to say that Detour Gold has been acquired by Kirkland Lake Gold in which she has been appointed to the Board of Directors.
