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.

Global Lithium demand continues to Dazzle

LITHIUM! The new oil?

One of the biggest commodity stories of 2021 is the enormous demand for lithium to supply batteries for electric vehicles. Electric vehicle production has grown at a staggering pace for anyone aware that not that long ago all the electric cars made were taken out into the desert and destroyed! Now I wonder who was behind those shenanigans?

At any rate we have a new consciousness which declares that electric vehicles are going to save the planet from overheating and we need them to replace ICE vehicles as soon as yesterday.
For this to occur we need batteries and lots of them! Those batteries take lithium to construct, hence the lithium price has soared to all time highs of approximately $30,000.00/ton U.S. as companies and countries move aggressively to obtain reliable supplies.

Further, according to data from the website MarketsandMarkets.com, (Article Link)the demand by 2025 will increase by more than double:

The lithium compounds market is projected to grow from USD 5.3 billion in 2020 to USD 13.5 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 20.6% from 2020 to 2025.

A junior exploration company which we own shares in largely because of faith in management is Infinite Ore Corp. (ILI.V OTCQB-ARXRF)
Jackpot Lithium deposit is the name of their established lithium deposit near Thunder Bay Ontario which is high grade although is rather small at present and needs to be expanded by more exploration. Jackpot is approximately 2 million tones of over 1% lithium which is considered high grade.

ILI has very recently closed a financing for approximately $8 million (cad) to expand their lithium holdings although it is unclear at this point where they will focus their spending.
We await further guidance from management, and the prospect has not gone unnoticed as the company valuation has basically doubled recently on the news of financing. The financing was done around 100% below where the share price was trading so that tells you something positive is happening in the sector and the company as well/
Stay tuned for updates and “GO Lithium!”
