Latest Video: Appia Rare Earths and Uranium Corp.

Appia has been very busy with 2 drill campaigns happening simultaneously currently in 2023.

 

ALCES LAKE SASKATCHEWAN:

One is the Alces Lake Rare Earth Project located in northwest Saskatchewan. This is the 2nd year of serious diamond drill exploration on the property and the company is about to start releasing results from the summer/fall drilling.

PCH PROJECT BRAZIL:

A very fortuitous gain of an ionic clay PCH Rare Earth Project in Goias Brazil has also been keeping the company busy drilling. Assay results are just beginning to be delivered from this property also and they are looking excellent. They have gone deeper and have been rewarded, and also plan to explore much more of the property.

Exciting times for the company and management who have been working diligently on developing rare earth prospects for some years now. Congrats to them for all the hard work.

Here is a link to the Latest Appia Video with CEO Tom Drivas, (Oct 24 202).

Mines and Money 2023

The annual Mines and Money conference could be considered the next significant mining event upcoming up in 2023. It is happening in London England as per usual, this year it takes place from Nov 28th to Nov 30th.  Mines and Money/London website link

-Observing this conference can be a good way to “take the temperature” of the junior mining exploration. industry, especially as a precursor to the annual PDAC condference which happens early every March in Toronto.
-Keeping an eye on awards given out at Mines and Money, plus who is getting financed and which sectors are popular can give investors some valuable clues as to where the overall industry is heading.

We will be watching Mines and Money 2023 with a keen eye this year!

Appia acquires Brazilian Ionic Clay Property

There has been a lot of excitement at Appia Rare Earths and Uranium Corp. since PDAC 2023!
The acquisition of a Brazilian ionic clay property has caused a lot of eyebrows to be raised because a property like this doesn’t come around every day. It was apparently pursued by various highly interested companies but Appia came out with the prize.

The Cachoeirinha Project (the “PCH Project”) is located in the Tocantins Structural Province of the Brasília Fold Belt, Goiás State, Brazil. Here is the press release announcing the acquisition plus initial assay results:

China Restricts Additional Rare Earth Metals

China is continuing on its path of restricting export access to certain metals.

As of August 01, 2023 germaniun and gallium have been added to the list. This is in addition
to restrictions on various rare earth metals which began as export quotas around 2010.
China controls around 90% of the supply of rare earth minerals as well as control of technologies surrounding the manufacture of products using these metals.

China has been enacting a policy of increasing restrictions on exporting these metals and technologies
causing western countries to scramble to put together their own supply chains. A large premium has been put upon getting production into place since these various metals are essential to western defense department This puts them in the category of national security resources. Not to mention the electric vehicle explosion requires these metals as well as many other technologies developed in recent years such as wind turbines, batteries, solar devices and so on.

Here is a link to an article about the latest restrictions of germanium and gallium written by the publication TheHill.com.

Appia Reports Wide Mineralization at Wilson Zone (Up to 8.98m @ 9.46 wt.% TREO), and Expands Underlying Amp Zone

“Appia Rare Earths & Uranium Corp. (the “Company” or “Appia”) (CSE: API, OTCQX: APAAF, Germany: “A0I0.F”, “A0I0.MU”, “A0I0.BE”) is excited to announce the release of assay results from 2022 diamond drilling of the Wilson and AMP zones of the WRCB area at its 100%-owned Alces Lake Rare Earth Elements (REES) Property, Northern Saskatchewan.”

-Appia continues their work at Alces Lake looking to define a rare earth resource.
They have been diamond drilling for 2 years and are now coming out with the results from the 2022 season.
The host rock is monazite and they have found several high grade zones, one which was known about from previous exploration called the Wilson Zone.

They have also identified several other high grade and lower grade zones as well as a 25 km structure along which they intend to keep exploring for new zones. 2023 will see more results coming out as they receive the rest of their assays from the 2022 season.

Appia will also continue with diamond drilling in 2023 to further identify new rare earth mineralization. We will be watching closely to see what more drilling brings this season.

PDAC Conference 2023 on March 5-8 in Toronto

Prospectors and Developers Association Convention (PDAC).

It is time again for Toronto’s world renowned mining conference to take place for 2023!

Last year (2022) as society in general was still battling the pandemic, the conference was postponed from the usual date and held in the middle of June.  Thankfully we are able to attend in March this year, the usual time slot over the years.
Therefore we are able to relay to our readers that the official PDAC date is March 05-08, 2023.

Fortunately for the industry as noted in a recent article on the Canadian Junior Report, the sector seems to have risen from a low in collective market cap/share price since October 2022.
This has certainly cheered on investors and spurred even more intense exploration efforts from participants. Especially important since there seems to be no end to the demand for traditional metals plus a need for various ‘new’ minerals used in the technological society of the modern world.

With the usual blend of exploration companies, service providers, equipment manufacturers and financiers, we expect this years PDAC to be as busy as any previous years with much business transacted.
There will be many talks, meetings, educational events,  awards and a refreshing beverage or two will be shared as participants from all over the globe congregate.

We hope to see you there!

The official address is the Metro Convention Center, North Building location located at 255 Front Street West, two blocks west of York Street.

The South Building entrance is located at 222 Bremner Boulevard, one block north of Lakeshore Boulevard, west of York Street.

Junior Exploration Companies 2023 Update

After experiencing what appears to be a bottoming phase in market cap/share prices prices in October 2023, it appears that the worst may be over for investors in the junior company exploration sector.
The market caps of many of the companies on the junior exchanges have risen 20% to 100% or more and many have held their gains – much to the relief of battered investors.

There are various reasons for the cyclical nature of this sector, some easier to identify than others.

The demand for traditional as well as more exotic minerals is not going away anytime soon it appears. In fact there is incredible demand for some metals and minerals in our current technological society.

-For example the demand for lithium hydroxide seems to know very few bounds and the price has soared to $79,000.00 per ton (U.S).
Lithium Chart- Feb 01, 2023

Lithium is used in batteries for the electric vehicle market and this has spurred a major amount of exploration activity for new lithium deposits around the globe.

-Demand for copper is reportedly going to reach unheard of numbers in the near future as well, although price has not really reflected that as of yet. As seen on the internet, a report from S&P Global forecasts that “global demand for the metal could double by 2035, from 25 million metric tons to 50 million metric tons.”
The report also stated that “by 2030, supply from both existing and projected copper mining activities will meet just 80% of our needs.”
Copper Charts from Kitco.com

-In fact all of the minerals used in electric vehicles such as copper, aluminum, manganese, indium, rare earth elements, helium, cobalt, graphite and potash are apparently much needed in our society moving ahead.

-This is not even mentioning the uranium sector which is really a great solution for a lot of our energy problems according to many experts in the field, as the carbon generation is virtually non-existent with nuclear energy.

-So in speaking for weary investors, we say let the good times return to this sector, it has been a long wait!!

Romios announces appointment of new CEO Stephen Burega

It looks like an exciting new day for Romios with the appointment of Stephen Burega as CEO!
Mr Burega was formerly serving as President of Romios.
Press Release announcing appointment.

Tom Drivas who founded the company approximately 27 years ago is stepping down. Mr. Drivas has assembled what we see as an impressive assembly of land claim packages over the years, with a significant deal being done with Enduro Resources a few years ago on several of their B.C. Golden Triangle claims.

The company plans to focus on Nevada moving forward.

“Plans are currently underway to move the Company’s assets forward with a focussed effort to streamline our approach and to bring our Nevada assets to the forefront of future exploration activities. We are actively looking for strong partnerships for our core assets in British Columbia and Ontario. All exploration activities will be supported with a well-developed communications and marketing effort that began in early 2022 to re-introduce the Company to the investing marketplace.”

 

With the recent addition of highly experienced geologist Joh Biczok we are seeing this as a very exciting next stage of development for Romios. Mr. Biczok has close to 40 years of experience and is a registered Professionial Geoscientist in Ontario
Mr Biczok spent 12 years conductiong research and exploration at the Goldcorp Musselwhite Mine most recently as senior exploration geologist and senior research geologist.

 

Stay tuned for more exciting developments from Romios, a very well positioned exploration junior.

Tartisan Nickel Corp. – TN:CSE = Moving Towards Production in Kenora

Tartisan Nickel Website

Tartisan Nickel is on a path to mineral production at Kenbridge in Kenora!  This is their 100% owned Kenbridge Nickel Deposit located in Kenora Ontario.
Kenora is a prolific mineral district. Kenbridge was originally discovered in 1937 and was actually mined by Falconbridge in the mid 1950’s for 2.5 years which makes the deposit a logical candidate to go back into production- plus undergo expansion using modern mineral discovery techniques. It is in a mining friendly jurisdiction with all season road access within 9km.

An additional positive note for Tartisan Nickel is they are planning to produce electric vehicle (EV) battery metals.
With so many climate issues the world definitely needs the nickel copper and cobalt metals which this deposit holds!

DETAILS OF THE KENBRIDGE DEPOSIT: Website Link

Ownership: 100%
Commodities: Nickel, Copper, Cobalt
Location: NW Ontario
Status: Advanced Nickel Deposit
Next Steps: Surface exploration and definition drilling plan, in addition to geotechnical, metallurgical and environmental work

 

Kenbridge Nickel Resource Updated Estimates
Tartisan Nickel published (Sedar: September 17, 2020) a NI 43-101 updated resource estimate that outlined a combined open-pit and underground, historic measured and indicated resource of 7.58 Mt at 0.58% nickel, 0.32% copper for a total of 95 million pounds of contained nickel.

There are more mineral resources to be discovered at Kenbridge undoubtably, and with nickel currently trading over $11.00 U.S. that means there is over $1 Billion of nickel currently ready to be mined at Kenbridge. With certainty and a lot of upside with what is basically already defined exploration targets Tartisan Nickel can deliver a known already mined resource with modern techniques to deliver what could be substantial upside. THis makes for a very exciting story moving ahead.

ENVIRONMENTAL

As of May 31, 2022 Tartisan Nickel Corp. has commenced environmental baseline studies at the Kenbridge nickel project in the Kenora mining district in Northwestern Ontario. Their “P.E.A” is now in the wrap up phase and the Company hopes to update shareholders next month.

Mining production success is the whole point and ultimate aim of exploration.
Therefore we feel it is important to be aware of companies which have achieved the ability to be in that position in the near future. It takes a lot of work and perseverance to achieve this goal but ultimately adds the most value.

-We will be keeping you updated,
