plan would also expand annual production to over 7 million tonnes of iron fines at 66% Fe, from 6 million tonnes previously. It's also seeking tenders to upgrade the plant and improve recoveries to 80%, from Cliffs’ 68%. Expected operating costs should improve by a dollar for every 1% increase in recoveries, O’Keeffe said. Cliffs, he added, knew the processing plant that it acquired was designed “incorrectly” and planned to fix the recovery circuit in its costly phase-two expansion, as it

could not afford to stop production due to its take-or-pay agreement. “There is a huge amount of work done, and all the information is there to understand how the recoveries could get to 80% plus, and that was being implemented in phase two. All we’ve done is taken that plan and brought it back to phase one to say, ‘OK, we can stop and fix the circuit to get the recoveries where they should be,’” O’Keeffe said. The quotes for the required work should be back in late June, with board approvals from Quebec Iron Ore and Champion to follow in July. Once approved, O’Keeffe expects consultants will take until year-end to complete the mine plan and processing work. After that, the company will have a good idea of the required capital and cost structure to get Bloom Lake back online. “We need to see a consistent iron ore price — above US$50 per tonne — (before) we can have the confidence to press the button and begin all the work,” O’ Keeffe said.

Previous owner Cliffs paid $4.9 billion to buy the mine from Consolidated Thompson Iron Mines in 2011, when iron ore prices peaked at US$190 per tonne, before plunging below US$40 per tonne in December 2015. (Prices have since recovered to just below US$50 per tonne.) Amid the slump in prices, in 2014 Cliffs took a $5.7-billion writedown for the acquisition and lost a proxy fight with activist hedge fund Casablanca Capital. The activist urged Cliffs to sell its Australian and Eastern Canadian iron ore assets, including Bloom Lake. At the end of 2014, Cliffs halted production, after it failed to secure equity partners to complete Bloom Lake’s $1.2-billion, phase-two expansion to increase production and

trim costs. In January 2015, it placed Bloom Lake and its other Canadian assets into creditor protection. At yearend, Champion’s Quebec Iron Ore subsidiary signed an agreement to buy the assets. It also became responsible for environmental reclamation liabilities, amounting to $41.7 million, and the replacement of certain bonds, totalling $1.1 million. Quebec’s Superior Court approved the transaction in January. A month later, Ressources Québec, a subsidiary of Investissement Québec, agreed to invest $14 million in Quebec Iron Ore. As a result, it holds 36.8% of the subsidiary, with Champion holding the rest. Quebec Iron Ore has $20 million in the bank, with O’Keeffe noting that Bloom Lake’s care and maintenance activities amount to $1.2

million a month. Champion also raised $30 million in a private placement to fund the Bloom Lake transaction and provide working capital, as well as funds to cover its share of the mine’s maintenance costs. It has $15 million on hand. The executive reveals he became interested in Bloom Lake in 2014 due to the quality of the material and uniqueness of the asset. “The Labrador Trough has high-grade and very clean iron ore, 66% Fe, and very, very low diluents, especially phosphorous and alumina,” he says, adding Champion has already received interest for the product, particularly from Japan. O’Keeffe became Champion’s chairman in August 2014, after it merged with his firm, Mamba Minerals. He took on the CEO role later that year. The former Glencore executive is best known for developing coal junior Riversdale Mining, once valued at A$7 million, into a firm that Rio Tinto (NYSE: RIO) bought in 2011 for A$3.9 billion. Bloom Lake sits near Champion’s Fire Lake North iron ore project. It also broadly benefits from Quebec’s Plan Nord to help develop the province’s north. The Quebec government has granted $20 million for the feasibility study of a rail linking the Fire Lake and Bloom Lake area to the port of Sept-Îles. The study should be completed later this year. TNM

president and CEO William Howald said during an interview. “The operation has been in production for quite some time, and the previous operators had moved ahead and permitted the next heapleach pad. We’re moving forward with building the infrastructure, and it’s basically an extension of the current pit. We’ll be mining the same rock and working with the recovery processes that have been effective for the past 30 years,” he added. Rye Patch hired Mine Development Associates to complete a preliminary economic assessment of Florida Canyon as part of its due diligence on the acquisition, and the study models a mine that would crank out 75,000 oz. gold annually over an eight-year mine life. The study indicates pre-production capital of US$29 million and operating costs of US$759 per oz. gold. The capital figure includes US$5.8 million for mining equipment and deferred maintenance; US$2.7 million for a crusher upgrades; US$7.2 million for the new leach pad, pond and piping construction; and US$3.8 million in contingency. Florida Canyon hosts measured and indicated resources of 76 million tonnes grading 0.37 gram gold per tonne for 1.13 million contained oz. gold. The project also has an early-stage sulphide resource of 6.4 million tonnes at 1.56 grams gold for 391,000 contained oz. gold. “There are definitely orphan holes that hint at potential oxide upside north and south of the main deposit,” Howald said. “The other thing I find exciting is the sulphide blanket beneath the oxides. There aren’t a lot of drill holes down there, but it has potential, and similar orebodies in Nevada have proven amenable to a flotation circuit.” Rye Patch figures it could get Florida Canyon back to significant production levels within six months, with a mine that would feature a US$49-million, after-tax net present value at a 7.5% discount rate, and a 34.4% internal rate of return. The company’s base case assumes a US$1,000 per oz. gold price in the first two years, and a US$1,150 per oz. gold price over the remaining six years of operation. To fund the pre-production capi-

tal, Rye Patch signed a commitment letter for a US$27-million credit facility with Macquarie Bank at an annual interest rate of LIBOR, plus 8%. The company must also close an equity financing of at least US$30 million by late July to complete the acquisition. On June 2, Rye Patch announced a private placement, wherein it could raise up to $50 million. The bestefforts financing involves 182 million subscription receipts priced at 22¢ apiece for gross proceeds of $40 million. The company granted its agents an option, however, to sell another 45.5 million receipts for $10 million. Each receipt would entitle the holder to receive one Rye Patch share when all conditions of the Florida Canyon deal are met. “Our main goal is really to get the mine up and running, and generate sustainable cash flow,” Howald said. “We’re hitting the market just perfectly because we know our business is cyclical, and I believe we’ve passed the bottom here. Once we have production early next year we can look at the sulphide potential and the oxide targets along trend.” Rye Patch views the deal as a regional consolidation, since it already holds 110 sq. km along the prolific Oreana gold trend. Florida Canyon sits halfway between Lovelock and Winnemucca, Nev.; and 30 km north of the company’s Wilco, Lincoln Hill and Gold Ridge projects. Lincoln Hill has been the most advanced-stage project in the portfolio. It hosts a high-grade, gold-silverquartz-pyrite-tourmaline-sericite stockwork vein system overprinting a “large low-to-moderate grade disseminated replacement precious metal mineralizing system.” Rye Patch also holds a 3.4% net smelter return royalty (NSR) over all gold and silver ounces at Coeur Mining’s (NYSE: CDE) nearby Rochester mine. The royalty is capped at 39.4 million equivalent oz. silver, which the company says should sustain the royalty payments through 2018. “Our royalty position allowed us to be players in the game during the downturn, and this is really a transformative event for our company,” Howald said. “We’ve been advancing Lincoln Hill towards production in early 2019, and so Florida Canyon fits nicely into that corporate strategy. Now we’ll generate cash flow quickly, and that will really allow us to drive our regional project portfolio. It’s also a game changer due to the potential infrastructure synergies of the on-site assay lab and experienced mining team.” Rye Patch shares have traded in a 52-week range of 11¢ to 28¢, and closed at 27¢ per share at press time. The company has 144 million shares outstanding for a $139-million market capitalization, and reported US$6.1 million in income from its Rochester NSR in 2015. TNM

positive prefeasibility study on the Zafranal project — an Andean style porphyry copper-gold deposit in southern Peru owned by Teck Resources (TSX: TCK.A; TSX: TCK.B; NYSE: TECK), AQM Copper (TSXV: AQM) and Mitsubishi Materials — “tees Zafranal up for the next commodity cycle,” Haywood Securities analyst Stefan Ioannou says. The study envisions a conventional open-pit operation feeding a concentrator over a 19-year mine life for total output of 3.1 billion lb. copper and 484,000 oz. gold. The concentrate would be trucked 216 km away from the deposit to the Port of Matarani. Zafranal is 80 km from tidewater and 166 km by road from the town of Arequipa. Initial capex could ring in at US$1.2 billion, with life-of-mine sustaining capital costs of US$263 million. The high sustaining capital costs reflect the purchase of mine equipment in years three and four of production, when the owners would take over the operation of the mine from a contractor. “It’s pretty straightforward in terms of development,” AQM president and CEO Bruce Turner says in an interview. “We don’t have to relocate any communities, the climate conditions are good and it’s cheap power, compared with Chile. And what makes it a really good project is a near-surface, higher-grade supergene blanket that is 175 million tonnes of 0.6% copper. There is also a favourable mining environment in Peru, despite all the things you hear in the press.” Using a base case of US$3 per lb. copper and US$1,200 per oz. gold, the study estimates that Zafranal would yield an after-tax net present value of US$496 million at an 8% discount rate, with a 15.9% post-tax internal rate of return and 5.1-year payback. Production would average 120,000 tonnes per year of copper-in-concentrate over the first five years, falling to 75,000 tonnes per year over the life of the operation. The

mine plan is designed for a variable feed to a concentrator in the range of 55,000 to 64,000 tonnes per day depending on the mineral type, with a peak total material movement of 75 million tonnes per year. The mine is scheduled to run 365 days per year. Average mine-site production costs would come to US$1.29 per lb. copper from plant feed material processed, including mining, rehandling, milling and flotation. Average C1 operating costs for the 19-year mine life total US$1.59 per payable lb. copper net of transport losses and smelter deductions. Teck, which discovered Zafranal in 2003, owns 50% of the jointventure project. The other 50% is owned by Minera AQM Copper Peru, of which AQM Copper owns 60% and Mitsubishi Materials Corp. holds the rest. Turner, who joined AQM in 2009, described the study as a milestone. “We’ve gone through the whole process of exploration and putting together drill plans, and it has culminated in publishing the prefeasibilty study,” he says. “It’s well thought out, it’s built for purpose, it’s robust, it’s got examples of the designs that work well in Peru … unfortunately markets haven’t been particularly kind, so it’s been more difficult than expected, but we’ve done what we said we’d do, which is put together a solid development scenario for this project.” Turner also notes that the study was put together by a group of consultants, including Ausenco Peru, which also worked on HudBay Minerals’ (TSX: HBM; NYSE: HBM) Constancia project — another copper porphyry project in southern Peru. The current Zafranal concentrator design is a built-for-purpose plant. It has few overhead cranes, no roof or walls, and it’s an open building. The mine design proposes two contiguous pits with a combined 3.5 km strike length, a maximum 1 km width and a maximum 456-metre depth. The operation’s primary crusher would be next to the mine on the opposite hillside of the valley just south of the main zone open pit,

“WATER IS ALWAYS THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE IN PERU. EITHER YOU’VE GOT TOO MUCH OF IT, OR YOU DON’T HAVE ENOUGH.” BRUCE TURNER PRESIDENT AND CEO, AQM COPPER

at a base elevation of 2,494 metres above sea level. Due to the steep topography between the primary crusher and the rest of the concentrator, the conveyor that transfers the crushed ore to the crushed ore stockpile — which feeds the grinding circuit — would pass through a 3.6 km tunnel. The rest of the concentrator and major facilities such as the crushed ore stockpile would be terraced down a ridge. Other buildings, such as the camp and general administrative buildings, would be located downhill. AQM describes the layout as “compact, but adequate for the facilities.” Tailings would be placed 1 km southeast of the concentrator and total 396 million tonnes in time. AQM, the operator, says that due to the favourable topography in the tailings management facility area, which provides a natural basin for the impoundment, only one embankment would be required initially (in the southwest of the impoundment), with a small embankment required later in the northwest. Sand cycloned from the tailings would be used to raise tailings embankments as needed. Zafranal’s measured and indicated resources stand at 467.3 million tonnes grading 0.4% copper and 0.07 gram gold per tonne for 3.9 billion lb. copper and 1.05 million oz. gold, with inferred resources adding 21.4 million tonnes averaging 0.2% copper and 0.06 gram gold for 114 million lb. copper and

0.04 million oz. gold. The resource is based on a 0.2% copper cut-off grade and long-term copper and gold prices of US$3.50 per lb. and US$1,400 per ounce. The operation would require 410 litres per second of makeup water and AQM says that a brackish-water aquifer within 35 km of the proposed process plant site could satisfy the project’s process water requirements. The water is unsuitable for human and animal consumption or crop irrigation, and AQM says that test work suggests that the water is suitable for concentrator processing. “Water is always the biggest challenge in Peru, either you’ve got too much of it, or you don’t have enough,” Turner says. “We’ve located three sources of brackish water at different distances from the plant site, and one of the most promising of these is the aquifer 35 km away, with a large volume of stored water. We would need 250 million cubic metres over the 19-year mine life, so we think it’s only a small part of what the aquifer contains.” Much of the next round of work will be completing hydrogeological studies in the areas of tailings management and potential water supply. As for power, a proposed 96 km transmission line from a substation near Arequipa to a proposed 220 kilovolt substation near the mine’s concentrator would have to be built. Ioannou of Haywood Securities says in a research note that the study (“vetted by two major partners”), argues well for AQM’s future cash flow, and could turn the junior’s stake in the project into an asset coveted by other mining companies. “We acknowledge a 15.9% basecase after-tax IRR stands to attract scrutiny in the context of current copper market sentiment,” he says. “Nevertheless, the project is wellpositioned for expedited development through Teck and Mitsubishi’s involvement. “While a passive 30% project interest stands to potentially garner significant cash flow for AQM over time, we anticipate the meaningful position will attract attention from potential suitors with a strongerfor-longer copper price outlook,

whether it be the company’s existing partners looking to consolidate a larger share of Zafranal, or other third parties looking for exposure to copper in an established mining jurisdiction.” When asked to address the Haywood comment, Turner said he didn’t know, but noted that AQM has to do something about funding if it wants to finish a feasibility study. “Raising money in this market is difficult and it’s dilutive for juniors, so we’ll look at all options, and our partners are looking at their options, as well.” Turner said it is possible the project will be ready for the next commodity cycle, given that the company is looking at turning out its first concentrate in 2021, although admittedly, “a lot of things can get in the way” before that. “I don’t think things are going to get much better in the copper space until the end of next year, and I don’t think the recovery will be quite as dramatic as you would have experienced earlier. There will be an increase in price and that will gradually improve over the following years, so us coming on in that market is good. Most of our higher-grade copper is in the first six years, so if we continue with higher copper prices this project will do very well.” TNM

| Burden falls on miners

A

long-simmering legal case revolving around the duty to consult in Ontario’s Mining Act has been resolved, with plaintiff Northern Superior Resources having its action against the province of Ontario in Ontario’s Superior Court of Justice dismissed. If you’ll recall, Northern Superior BY JOHN CUMMING jcumming@northernminer.com Resources is a Sudbury-based junior mineral exploration company that has spent the last couple of decades looking for gold in Ontario and Quebec. The claims at the heart of the court case — named Rapson Bay, Meston Lake and Thorne Lake — were staked by Northern Superior between 2005 and 2007 in the Red Lake Mining Division located 740 km northwest of Thunder Bay, with an eye to their gold potential. As the judge lays out in detail in the decision, the initial exploration results were good, but in 2009, with financing in short supply during the global recession, Northern Superior had to bring in a partner with some ready cash. Junior explorer International Nickel Ventures stepped in and agreed to spend $1.5 million on exploration over four years to get a 50% interest in Thorne Lake. Relations between Northern Superior and the local Sachigo Lake First Nation appear to have started out on a good footing in 2005, with the aboriginal community agreeing to exploration drilling in the nearby Ellard Lake region in return for the company hiring First Nations members, using First Nations suppliers where possible, renting a camp on First Nations land, working around moose-hunting season, and other related benefits. In 2008, Northern Superior and the First Nation cooperated again on a similar but more detailed agreement for areas that included parts of Ellard Lake, Rapson Bay and Thorne Lake. It was in 2009 that things got more complicated, as Ontario’s Ministry of Northern Development and Mines (MNDM) began what it called a “transitional approach” to more fulsome consultation with and between First Nations communities and the mining sector. Thereafter, every time Northern Superior staked a claim, the MNDM would send the company a letter advising it to consult the local First Nation involved, and would send the First Nation a similar notification. The government said it did this to encourage engagement between the parties. Northern Superior continued to have good relations with the Sachigo Lake First Nation, which offered to be the default contact for Northern Superior for all First Nations in the area. In contrast, the Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug (KI) First Nation — better known for its acrimonious dispute with Platinex Inc. — approached Northern Superior in 2009 and said that it did not want the company staking more claims east of Thorne Lake. But Northern Superior seemed to take Sachigo Lake’s assurances that KI was on board with an exploration program, and on this basis went ahead with the option agreement with International Nickel. This option agreement ended in 2011, and Northern Superior rebounded with more aggressive exploration at Meston Lake and Rapson Bay, and established another agreement with Sachigo Lake. Positive drill results at Rapson Bay were announced in January 2012. But no more work was ever done on the properties, as relations between Northern Superior and Sachigo Lake broke down when the two groups argued over payments of invoices and approvals for various work programs on the ground. Meanwhile the company needed to spend money on exploration to keep its claims valid, though it could apply for a delay in meeting those obligations due to special circumstances. Northern Superior did so, and was granted an extension. With no further progress after that, Northern Superior blamed the provincial government for not meeting its own duty to consult in the matter and demanded compensation for its loss by the provincial government. Thus the lawsuit was born. “To put it simply,” the judge writes in the dismissal, “Northern Superior cannot reasonably expect to be compensated by the Crown, which was never directly involved in its relationship with Sachigo Lake First Nation, and who it contacted only for the purpose of seeking compensation. When, in response to the Crown’s offer to facilitate meetings with Sachigo Lake First Nation or to employ the as-yet unproclaimed amendments to the Mining Act, Northern Superior walked away, it gave up any possibility of succeeding in an action before the court, regardless of the cause of action.” In other words, it’s up to mining companies to foster good relationships with local First Nations near their mineral projects in Canada. And if they can’t pull that off, don’t bother running to the government for a bailout. TNM

| Fostering camaraderie among explorers and local communities since 1972 BY LESLEY STOKES

xploration in northwestern B.C. was firing in 1972, and many explorers used services out of the small community of Smithers, British Columbia. This group included Nick Carter, who was with the B.C. Department of Mines and Petroleum Resources at the time, and Tom Schroeter, a geologist with Amoco Minerals. The pair were enjoying a round of golf in town during a muchneeded break from exploration work when they hatched a plan to organize a golf tournament to celebrate the end of a busy field season. “The lure of the event was to involve the community in Smithers so they could understand what exploration was all about and meet the people who were involved,” Schroeter tells The Northern Miner over lunch in a downtown Vancouver pub. “It was open to anybody who wanted to attend, and possibly win some great prizes the local suppliers had donated.” On the day of the tournament, Schroeter was stuck on a drill job in the Babine swamps and had given up all hope in making the event, when a helicopter landed and the pilot signalled for him to come on board. He was immediately transported to Smithers where he joined the small group of golfers, which included Carter, Paul Plicka, Gerry Auger, Merv Tew and Jim Gunn. He notes the nine-hole golf course featured sand greens, known as ‘browns,’ whereby contestants smoothed out their line of putt by using pieces of carpet attached to 2-by-4 handles, and did whatever they had to do to get the ball moving. Schroeter explains that Tew had made a “unique trophy” with an empty bottle of Hennessy cognac flanked by two empty cans of Uncle Ben’s beer perched on top of a wood base. Plicka came in first place, ranked by a modified “Callaway Handicap System,” whereby the person with the lowest net score won. Word of the tournament quickly spread around the exploration community, and in 1973 the

number of golfers increased to 25, among others who attended the “derailment” party at the Devil’s Web — a local hot spot. While the camaraderie between explorers reached new heights, the future for the industry began to diminish, as the New Democratic Party government took its toll on exploration and mining in the province. Schroeter changed jobs and became the district geologist for northwest B.C. with the B.C. Department of Mines and Petroleum Resources based in Smithers, alongside Carter, who was his boss based in Victoria. At the time, they recognized that something needed to be done to keep the industry in the northwest parts of the province moving. They decided to form the Smithers Exploration Group (SEX) — later changed to the acronym SEG in 1995 — to help educate the public about mining and exploration for the sustainability and economic well-being of northern communities. (To this day, the SEG has grown to offer field trips, short courses, conferences and numerable social events. It also publishes an annual exploration and mining directory list, which is considered the gold standard for industry directories in B.C., and can be found at www. smithersexplorationgroup.com). In 1974, perseverance paid off and the tournament grew to 52 participants, but attendance the next year wasn’t as prolific, as exploration activity in the region waned. Only 15 “hearty souls” made it to the event, including one geologist who “ambitiously set out to win it all,” Schroeter says. “We wanted to keep the tournament fun and fair, so we were careful to ensure talented players were handicapped by being placed with ‘boisterous’ teammates that offered plenty of distractions,” he laughs, pointing to the glass of beer beside him. “Later that day, this particular individual was seen strapped to his golf cart and later to a tree outside the clubhouse just to keep him propped up — it was like a scene out of Weekend at Bernie's. Needless to say, he not only didn’t win, he didn’t even finish!”

He continues that “one of the other contestants lost his pants somewhere along the course, but he was wearing the biggest grin, and that’s what mattered most.” By 1976, a new pro-mining government was in place in B.C. and the event f lourished once more, rising to 30 golfers and a number of spectators. Weaving through the lively crowd was a horse loaded with saddlebags full of “liquid refreshments,” Schroeter adds. “The night before the tournament we went to the hotel, which had strippers at the time. There was a performing lady there called ‘Venus Angel,’ and we all joked that it would be neat if we invited her to be the ‘queen of the golf day.’ A few minutes later, an older gentleman in our group got up and said he was going to go ask her, but we didn’t think much of it. The next day, I was the first to arrive at the course when I see a car coming down the road. As they got closer I could see the older gentleman behind the wheel, on his far side is Venus Angel, and wedged in between them — could you imagine — is his wife. It was just hilarious,” he says. Schroeter recalls another participant in 1977 who flew to Smithers in a plane he rented in Vancouver, which had a huge shark jaw painted on the front. He buzzed the crowd before the game started and eventually took his place as one of the contestants. One of his teammates arrived late — he had been out staking claims down by Houston, a “nice molybdenum target,” Schroeter adds, but never finished the staking because “he wanted to come back early and play some golf.” “Wayne and his crew were toting their golf clubs still dressed in their cruiser vests, with red claim tags hanging out of their pockets,” he says. “But the real story began after the game when we were walking together to the nightclub. Out of nowhere two patrol cars convened upon us and said they were taking us to the station for interrogation.” The officers suspected the group had vandalized a school bus, which happened to be in the same vicinity where they were walking. “Wayne insisted they record every claim tag number in their pocket because they had to go back the next morning and stake the rest of the claims,” he says. “After we proved we were harmless, we finally left the station at 2 a.m. So Wayne couldn’t resist naming one of the claim groups ‘Jailbird.’” In 1982, J.T. Thomas Drilling hosted a champagne breakfast for participants and other locals, which Schroeter says got everyone

“geared up for the day.” (This annual event continued until 2001, when Hy-Tech Drilling took over hosting the event.) The same year, Bob Karrer created a new trophy for the annual golf tournament, made out of various pieces of drilling equipment that included a drill bit and wrench, mounted on a steel base. “It took 38 hours of welding to create this masterpiece, and it certainly caught the attention of everyone, including staff and members of the golf club,” he recalls. The original tournament winner trophy, Schroeter says, provided a “fitting award” to honour the late Gerry Auger, given to the participant “who had the most fun.” In the late-1980s, exploration was booming and attendance at the event flourished. Prizes were offered under a number of categories, including relapse recovery, loudest participant, best costume, “too” much fun and whoever had the longest club throw. In 1995, a brand new clubhouse greeted the participants, including miners from the new high-grade gold-silver Eskay Creek mine. The clubhouse offered a dry reprieve the following year, which happened to be held on one of the coldest and wettest days they had seen in quite some time. “It was our largest turnout, with 95 people,” he says. “The new, warm and dry clubhouse was certainly appreciated that year. Many prizes were awarded and everyone nailed it at karaoke.” Schroeter says that aside from weather, nature had other ways of dealing “unexpected” challenges to contestants. “There was a cheeky fox who kept stealing golf balls one year,” he says. “He would hunch down near the green, run out, grab the ball and take off. Lord knows why,” he laughs. “The crows were known to steal the golf balls, but this fox posed a whole

new problem.” In 2012, the Joyce Warren Memorial Award was instituted to recognize her contributions and commitment to ensuring a successful golf tournament. Schroeter explains that Warren was an integral part of the exploration business, providing expediting services for companies in the north since the mid-1970s. The initial recipients of this award were Schroeter and Carter in recognition of their dedication, enthusiasm, energy and high spirits in making the annual tournament a success. Schroeter says that between 1972 and 2015, over 2,500 people have participated in the golf tournaments, with another 650 people attending the festivities. He notes that anyone involved or interested in mining in B.C. can still participate in this mid-September event hosted by the SEG in Smithers. In April 1973, April 1974 and May 1992, the mining communities of Victoria, Kamloops (hosted by Kamloops Exploration Group) and Vancouver (hosted by the Association of Mineral Exploration B.C.) initiated golf days for the same purposes as the Smithers’ tournament. — Written with the assistance of Tom Schroeter and Nick Carter.

M A R K E T N EWS TORONTO STOCK EXCHANGE / MAY 30–JUNE 3 The S&P/TSX Composite Index rose nearly 0.9% to close at 14,226.78, up 20% from its Jan. 20 low, and marking a return to a bull market. The S&P/TSX Global Mining Index jumped 6% to 57.97, while the S&P/TSX Capped Diversified Metals & Mining Index climbed 5.1% to 537.81. The S&P/TSX Global Gold Index surged 12.6% to 230.04. Spot gold added US$30.70 to finish at US$1,243.50 per oz. gold. The higher gold price helped lift gold companies. Royal Gold advanced US$7.91 to US$79.68 per share. On June 2, the precious metals royalty and streaming firm promoted Mark Isto to vice-president of operations, effective July 1, 2016. Isto worked for Placer Dome, Kinross Gold and First Nickel, before joining Royal Gold as an executive director of project evaluation in 2015. A day later, the company held a webcast for its analyst and investor day. The presentation highlighted Royal Gold’s long-life assets, including Pueblo Viejo in the Dominican Republic, Mount Milligan in B.C. and Andacollo in Chile. Detour Gold shares climbed $4.54 to $29.69 per share, despite a negative outcome regarding an ongoing criminal investigation. On May 31, the company said it was charged the day earlier, along with three site employees, with offences under the Oc-

cupational Health and Safety Act relating to the death that occurred at the Detour Lake mine on June 3, 2015. The miner believes all the charges related to the fatality have been served, and will review the charges before commenting further. First Quantum Minerals saw heavy trading after selling the Kevitsa nickel-copperplatinum group metals mine in Finland to Boliden. The company received US$712 million in cash from the sale, excluding working capital adjustments. The transaction closed on June 1. First Quantum shares climbed 23¢ to $9.15 on 28.6 million shares traded. Cameco fell 9¢ to $15.17 per share, despite announcing that the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission has approved the expansion of Areva Resources’ McClean Lake mill in TSX MOST ACTIVE ISSUES

northern Saskatchewan. Cameco uses that mill to toll-treat ore from its nearby Cigar Lake uranium mine. With the approval, Areva can boost the mill’s annual production capacity to 24 million lb. uranium oxide (U3O8) from 13 million lb. This will enable Cigar Lake to reach its 2016 production target of 16 million lb. U3O8, and full production capacity of 18 million lb. in 2017.

Resources and Tepco Resources hold the rest. Champion Iron gained 36.1% to finish at 28¢ per share. On June 2, the company said it is optimistic that it could lower the operating costs at the recently acquired Bloom Lake mine in Quebec. However, it has yet to release details on how it intends to increase recoveries and annual production to lower costs. Champion acquired the iron ore mine on April 11. TNM

TSX VENTURE EXCHANGE / MAY 30–JUNE 3 The S&P/TSX Venture Composite Index gained 3.8%, or 25.18 points, to a 693.72-point close, while gold prices strengthened on doubts that the U.S. Federal Reserve would hike interest rates in June. Spot gold jumped 2.5%, or US$30.28, to US$1,242.66 per oz. whereas three-month London Metal Exchange copper contracts edged down US$21 per tonne, or 0.4%, to a US$4,679-per-tonne close. Gold Reserve led the value-added category, gaining $1.62 to a $5.09-per-share close after extending its memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela regarding the company’s Brisas gold-copper project in southeastern Venezuela. In September 2014, Gold Reserve negotiated a US$740-million settlement with the Venezuelan government for losses it incurred after a nationalization campaign rescinded all of the project’s permits and licences. The company expects to complete the transactions outlined in the MOU by June 21. Aspiring miner Discovery Ventures saw 17.4-million shares traded before closing up 3¢ to 17¢ per share. The company announced it would undertake a private placement and grant of stock options to advance its WillaMax gold-copper-silver project in southeastern B.C. The financing package offers 25 million

units at 12¢ each for a total of $3 million. Each unit consists of one common share and one additional share at 20¢ exercisable over four years. The company also granted existing consultants 2 million options at 15¢ per share, exercisable over five years. Discovery is rehabilitating underground portals for a 10,000-tonne bulk sample and has applied for a small mines permit with the B.C. government. The material would be processed at Discovery’s wholly owned Trout Lake mill complex, 132 km from the site. Aben Resources jumped 157.1% before finishing at 18¢ per share. The company completed the first and second tranche of a private placement for a total $234,250, and granted 1 million incentive stock options at an exercise price of 7¢-per-share over five years.

U.S. MARKETS / MAY 30–JUNE 3 Economic data was mixed with reports that U.S. consumer spending in April posted its sharpest increase in more than six years, while jobs data showed that non-farm payrolls in May increased the least in more than five and a half years at just 38,000. The employment figures sent the U.S. dollar down 1.6% on June 3, but contributed to the rise in the gold price, which advanced 2.5% to US$1,243.50 per oz. gold. Attacks on oil infrastructure in Nigeria helped push Brent crude to a weekly close of US$50.21 per barrel. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.4% to 17,807.06, and the S&P 500 remained relatively flat — up just 0.003% to 2,099.13. Barrick Gold jumped US$2.56 to US$19.18 per share. The company confirmed it had reached a US$140-million settlement in a class action lawsuit pending before the U.S. District Court. The lawsuit claimed that Barrick had misrepresented the status of its Pascua Lama project. Barrick rejects the allegations and said “the company has not accepted any charges of wrongdoing or liability.” Construction at the project was stopped in 2013 after being dogged by environmental issues, political op-

Infill drilling at the Brucejack project’s Valley of the Kings lifted shares of Pretium Resources by 17% to US$8.26 apiece. The underground drill program returned six intersections grading greater than 1,000 grams gold per tonne, within long intervals of significant gold mineralization. The results from the 2015–2016 infill drill program and a revised geological interpretation will be incorporated into an updated resource estimate for the Valley of the Kings.

h i le t he bu rgeon i ng lithium market has sent companies scrambling to secure and advance lithium projects across the globe, anyone new to the scene may be left wondering what the fuss is all about. And so The Northern Miner reached out to Andy Robinson, chief operating officer for Pure Energy Minerals (TSXV: PE), to describe the fundamentals of lithium deposits and how to understand the differences between projects. Pure Energy entered the lithium business in 2009, and picked up its flagship Clayton Valley South property in 2011. The brine-hosted deposit is beside North America’s current sole lithium producer Albemarle (NYSE: ALB) and its Silver Peak operation, halfway between Reno and Las Vegas in Nevada. “The lithium world is not like normal commodities … it’s highly technical, and there’s lots of tricky geology, hydrogeology and chemical engineering you have to solve to make it work,” Robinson says over coffee at a café near The Northern Miner’s Vancouver office. “Fundamentally you need the right team in place, otherwise you won’t be able to do anything with the project.” Robinson has a doctorate in geochemistry, and cut his teeth on a variety of groundwater projects in the mineral and energy sectors for over a decade. He explains that there are three types of lithium deposits: spodumene, clay and brine. Spodumene is a lithium-bearing mineral found within coarsegrained granite pegmatite rock. One reason why crystals in pegmatites are so unusually large is because lithium prevents magmatic melt from cooling too quickly, which gives the minerals more time to grow. “Pegmatites are your classic hardrock deposit that any miner can get their head around,” Robinson says. “They’re mostly in Australia, with Talison Lithium being the biggest producer right now. Then there’s a bunch in Quebec and some in the eastern U.S., but nothing there has been put into production yet.” (An exception is beleaguered miner RB Energy — formerly Canada Lithium — at its Quebec Lithium spodumene mine, 60 km north See LITHIUM / 8

rom satellite imagery, Tres Quebrados just looked like an ordinary freshwater lake in northwestern Argentina. But when Waldo Perez stuck his hands into the brownish liquid he discovered something else entirely. “The first thing you notice is that it isn’t freshwater — it’s brine,” he says in an interview. “It’s oily, it’s dense, it’s heavy, it’s kind of black, and it was totally unexpected. It is a rare phenomenon to find large bodies of lithium brine exposed on surface — the size that you can actually see in a satellite image — so it was missed all these years.” Initial surface samples came back with some of the highest-grade lithium readings the geologist has ever seen in Argentina, ranging from 1,390 milligrams per litre lithium down to 896 milligrams per litre lithium. The samples were also incredibly dense, with some measurements as high as 1.30 kg per litre. In contrast, density readings from the region’s other salars range between 1.18 kg per litre and 1.22 kg per litre, Perez says. “It’s the densest existing brine that I am aware of, and it’s the fourth highest-grade lithium brine known today — at least from the surface samples,” Perez says with excitement. “There are other salty water bodies in the Puna, but none contains this kind of grade of lithium and this density.” Perez is no stranger to lithium exploration. He led the team that

discovered the Cauchari lithium deposit — the third-largest lithium brine deposit in the world — now owned by Lithium Americas (TSX: LAC), a company he set up privately and took public in 2010.

That team left Lithium Americas in 2013 to look for the next big project. They believe they have found it with Tres Quebrados, a discovery they made in December 2015. Perez hopes to list his new company, NEO Lithium Corp., on the TSX Venture Exchange later this year. “You’ve seen a lot of buzz in the lithium industry recently, but we’re not new to this — we’ve been doing this for more than a decade,” Perez says. “And we have reassembled what is probably one of the most elite teams in the world for this type of deposit.” Both Cauchari and Tres Quebrados are in northwestern Argen-

tina and make up part of the Puna Plateau, an area also known as the “Lithium Triangle” that straddles Argentina, Chile and Bolivia. Cauchari is near Argentina’s border with Bolivia, while Tres Quebrados, 500 km south, is closer to the country’s border with Chile. Tres Quebrados — “3Q” for short — is also 30 km from another large lithium deposit called the “Maricunga” salar in Chile. Perez points out that the lithium grade at Tres Quebrados is 50% higher than at Cauchari. “As a matter of fact,” he says, “the lowest grade See NEO LITHIUM / 10

of Val-d’Or, Que. The company began commissioning the mine in 2012, but ran into delays from commissioning problems with its kiln, which converted alpha spodumene to beta spodumene — the first step of the process to convert spodumene concentrate to lithium carbonate. After a failed attempt to raise capital for the operation, RB Energy shuttered the mine in 2014 before it reached full capacity and filed for bankruptcy.) But today’s resurgence in the lithium market has cast a new glow on the hard-rock projects in Quebec, with Nemaska Lithium (TSXV: NMX; US-OTC: NMKEF) being “one company that’s furthest along,” Robinson says. The company is nearing a construction decision at its spodumene Whabouchi lithium project, 300 km northwest of Chibougamau. The project has open-pit proven and probable reserves of 20 million tonnes at 1.5% lithium oxide (Li2O) using a 0.4% Li2O cut-off, and underground proven and probable reserves of 7.3 million tonnes at 1.3% Li2O, using a 0.8% Li2O cut-off. Lithium clay deposits are developed when intense hydrothermal fluids convert volcaniclastic rocks into hectorite, a lithium-rich clay. The lithium can also precipitate directly into clays from migrating groundwater. “Clay deposits would be bulkmined, but the processing is different, and there aren’t any deposits that have been commercialized yet,” he says. “The lithium is essentially locked in the clay minerals, so it requires more energy just to persuade the lithium back into solution.” He says the more publicly known and “impressive” clay deposits include Lithium Americas’ (TSX: LAC) Lithium Nevada deposit — formerly known as Kings Valley — 100 km northwest of Winnemucca in northern Nevada, and Bacanora Minerals (TSXV: BCN) and partner Rare Earth Minerals’ (LSE: REM)

Sonora Lithium project, 190 km northeast of Hermosillo, in northern Mexico’s Sonora state. Lithium Nevada hosts 50.8 million tonnes of 0.3% lithium and 3.3% potassium for 843,000 tonnes lithium carbonate equivalent (LCE) and 1.7 million tonnes potassium. Indicated resources add 164 million tonnes of 0.3% lithium and 3.1% potassium for 2.5 million tonnes LCE and 5 million tonnes potassium. Both calculations assume a 0.2% lithium cut-off. The Sonora Lithium project hosts 259 million indicated tonnes of 0.3% lithium and 1.4% potassium for 4.5 million tonnes LCE and 3.6 million tonnes potassium. Inferred resources add 160 million tonnes of 0.3% lithium and 1.3% potassium for 2.7 million tonnes LCE and 2.1 million tonnes potassium. Both calculations assume a 0.1% lithium cut-off.

when lithium is leached, transported, concentrated and held within salty groundwater in arid environments. According to a Canaccord Genuity market report released in May, lithium brine deposits account for 78% of the world’s lithium resources, and 51% — or 90,000 tonnes — of global LCE production in 2015. Most brine deposits are found in what Robinson refers to as South America’s “lithium triangle,” tracing from the bottom of Bolivia into Argentina and the Atacama Desert in Chile. Canaccord notes the world’s largest brine production is from a large salt flat called “Salar de Atacama” in Chile, where Sociedad Quimica y Minera de Chile (NYSE: SQM) and Albemarle produced 60,673 tonnes of LCE — or 34% of global LCE production — from their combined operations in 2015. “There are only a handful of regions in the world with all the right geological vectors that come together to form a lithium brine deposit,” Robinson says. “You find them in basins where there’s no water coming in or out — it’s just like a big bathtub in the middle of the desert that’s been sitting there for hundreds of millions of years, evaporating into salt lakes. Lithium loves being in solution. It gets leached from volcaniclastic rocks that are slightly elevated in lithium, and/or it’s introduced by geothermal systems. So it all comes in diluted, but becomes more concentrated through evaporation over time.” Other than South America, he says, the only other region that makes “economic sense” for lithium brine production is in the Clayton Valley region of Nevada, where Albemarle has its Silver Peak operation. The U.S. Geological Survey estimates that Silver Peak has yielded 300 million lb. LCE since starting

production in 1966. Albemarle produced 5,000 tonnes LCE in 2015 — or 3% of global output — according to Canaccord’s report. Robinson notes there are also lithium brines associated with oilsands — such as those found in Alberta — but says they’re “very much their own niche.” “From a geological point of view, the oil field brines are something that happened 200 or 300 million years ago, whereas the lithium brines we’re more familiar with are still occurring to this day,” he says. “The oil and gas reservoirs often contain very saline groundwater that can be lithium enriched … but it hasn’t been looked at much yet.” One example he offers is junior explorer Canadian International Minerals (TSXV: CIN). The company confirmed a joint-venture agreement with Noram Ventures (TSXV: NRM) in May, whereby Noram may earn a 50% interest in the Alberta Lithium Brine project, located in the heart of the Sturgeon Lake oil field in west-central Alberta. The project hosts the Sturgeon Lake brine deposit, which has an inferred resource of 2 million tonnes LCE at grades of 67.5 milligrams lithium per litre in 5.7 billion cubic metres of water. Robinson explains that producers typically pump out lithium-enriched brines through a series of wells, and flush the water into a pond where the lithium concentrates via evaporation over time.

The concentrate is treated with sodium carbonate, known as “soda ash,” to precipitate lithium carbonate, which can then be washed and purified for sale. But Robinson says there are a number of limitations with this approach. The evaporation process, he says, is “very slow,” taking up to a year even in the most favourable conditions — such as the Atacama Desert — before a company can start processing the concentrate into a “useful product.” In Nevada, where temperatures are cooler, he says it can take “up to two years to go from pump to a product you can sell.” And if there’s a sudden rainstorm, or unpredictable weather, the pond becomes diluted and the evaporation process is set back. “The conventional way of mining brines is just not efficient enough … lithium mining is much more of a chemical market than it is your typical mining mentality. You want to make a product people want to buy and use in batteries as efficiently as possible,” he says. As a result, Robinson says Pure Energy has enlisted technology-leader Tenova Bateman Technologies and steelmaker Posco to develop a lithium processing technology that could slash production time to under 48 hours and eliminate the need for evaporation ponds. The company expects results from the processing trials later this year. Canaccord analyst Reg Spencer told The Northern Miner in an email that new lithium extraction technologies are listed as one of the risks in his firm’s supply forecasts, and to date “none have been proven to work on a commercial scale.” According to Canaccord’s market report, lithium demand could jump 81% to 347,000 tonnes LCE by 2020, and by 259% to 687,000 tonnes by 2025, with 38% of demand from lithium-ion based electric vehicles, and 14% from the grid storage sector. The firm predicts lithium carbonate prices could rise from US$6,000 per tonne in 2015 to US$10,500 per tonne by 2025, with spodumene See LITHIUM / 10

ure Energy Minerals (TSXV: PE) is testing a processing technology that could be a game changer for its Clayton Valley South lithium brine project, located beside Albemarle’s (NYSE: ALB) Silver Peak lithium mine, halfway between Reno and Las Vegas, Nev. The mini-pilot plant work is being carried out at Tenova Bateman Technologies’ research and development centre in Katzrin, Israel, while steelmaker Posco is also conducting similar research at its facilities in Pohang, South Korea. Chief operating officer Andy Robinson tells The Northern Miner the new processing technique would generate lithium hydroxide and slash production time. “The old-school idea is to pump the brines out, spread it onto evaporation ponds and leave it for a year or two before it’s harvested and processed into lithium carbonate,” he says. “With this new technology, you can pump the brine to surface, run it through a chemical process, strip everything out and turn it into a battery-ready product in under two days.” The process is broken into three phases: membranes remove the alkaline elements from the brine, such as calcium and magnesium; solvent extraction creates a lithium sulphate solution; and electrolysis converts the solution into lithium hydroxide. The company says the technology could bump up lithium recovery within brines from 50% to greater than 99%. “We know the process effectively extracts lithium down to 20 milligrams of lithium per litre,” he says. “If we can make this work, then what were once considered marginal brine deposits could now be completely feasible. “The technology has been commercialized for various other metals, so we’re just taking it and tweaking a few things to make it work for lithium,” he continues. “We’ve put together this really cool brain farm, and if they can’t solve it, then it can’t be solved. But everything so far is looking good, and we have the right combination of talent to really crack this one.” Robinson says the company became interested in the technology because getting permits to build ponds in Nevada can be “difficult,” and that “the public and regulators just don’t like evaporation ponds. They’re ugly, they require thousands of acres of public land … and you’re evaporating huge quantities of water in a desert, which is pretty reckless.” One of Pure Energy’s biggest backers on advancing the technology is Tesla Motors (NASDAQ: TSLA). The electric carmaker is building a US$5-billion battery plant, the “Gigafactory,” located outside Reno, and a three-hour drive from Pure Energy’s property. The pair entered into a supply agreement last September, whereby Pure Energy would supply lithium hydroxide to Tesla over five years once Clayton Valley South goes into production and meets certain conditions. “We saw there was something that can be done here to improve the process and Tesla agreed with us,” he says. “They’ve provided a lot of personnel and technical help to get us down this road because they believe in this technology too.” Robinson says if the test work is successful, the company will incorporate the results into a preliminary

economic study for its Clayton Valley South project, scheduled for later this year. The report will also update the project’s inferred resource, which Robinson says was negatively impacted in the last phase of drilling. The company reported in May that drilling in the shallow part of the southern resource area returned “no significant lithium values” because a hydrothermal system was diluting the brine. “We stepped out into the middle of the southern resource area and encountered a hydrothermal system … which is definitely not what we were expecting,” he says. “We need to recast the resource for the shallow aquifer in the south … we’re not sure how it’s going to land, but there will certainly be some impact.” Most drilling on the project has focused on 1.6 sq. km in the northern end of the basin, where

lithium-enriched brines occur in two aquifers: Main Ash and Lower. An upper zone in the Main Ash aquifer has an inferred resource of 10,300 tonnes grading 102 milligrams of lithium per litre, whereas a lower zone has 31,700 tonnes grading 370 milligrams of lithium per litre. The Lower aquifer system contains 163,000 tonnes grading 194 milligrams per litre. The company combined previous drilling with seismic and gravity data to extrapolate the two lithiumbearing aquifer systems in the north across the 15 km length of the basin. The interpretation led to the southern zone’s 30.9 sq. km inferred resource area, which measured 245,000 tonnes grading 102 milligrams per litre for the Main Ash aquifer, and 366,000 tonnes grading 37 milligrams of lithium per litre for the Lower aquifer. Robinson explains the magnitude

of the interpretation is standard practice and “the same as other inferred resources in basins across the world.” He says that “the aquifers show up really well in the seismic section and you can see the layers go all the way through the basin just beautifully. We don’t believe the hydrothermal system impacts the entire basin. Perhaps it’s focused along some sort of fault we haven’t been able to image yet — we don’t know.” In light of the drill results, the company is working to expand the

resource in the northern end of the basin, where drilling to date has yet to reach the bottom of the brine. “Everywhere we’ve drilled in the north looks great so far, and it’s better grade,” Robinson says. “We think by adding thickness to the north, we’ll offset some of the inferred resource we may have lost in the south, so we’re balancing two things. “Our next milestone is to combine the new resource with the processing work in a new economic study, and if it goes the way we think it will, it will have some great numbers.” TNM

at Tres Quebrados is the highest grade at Cauchari.” Tres Quebrados also has high potassium and potash values that average 0.8%. “Anywhere else in the world, 0.8% potash is a standalone potash project,” Perez says. “Potash in Utah, for example, is produced from brine that is 0.7% or 0.6% potash.” Perez points out that other lithium brine projects spend part of their budget on adding lime during evaporation to produce potash. But chemical results from preliminary sampling at Tres Quebrados show that the brine does not need lime to precipitate the potash. Preliminary brine evaporation simulation indicates that the brine may reach 1% lithium concentration levels and produce potash without using any reagents, which also suggests there is potential to directly ship the concentrate, Perez says. He estimates that Cauchari and other salars, such as Hombre Muerto (owned by FMC [NYSE: FMC]) and Atacama (owned by Albemarle [NYSE: ALB] and SQM [NYSE: SQM]) all require lime. At Cauchari he estimates that adding lime would make up 30% of the company’s projected operating costs. “We are already there — we don’t need to do anything — we can produce potash just by letting the brine dry in the sun,” Perez says. “It’s amazing, and potash will be a significant by-product.” Among the many qualities Tres Quebrados has to offer, he says, is that unlike many lithium brine deposits, it has low concentrations of magnesium and sulphate — impurities that can be difficult and costly to extract. “They’re not contaminants in terms of being hazardous to the environment, they are contaminants because they sequester your lithium,

making it harder to recover,” he says. “You have to look at these two elements to see if you will be able to put a lithium project into production … [an iron] sulphate is a little easier to get rid of, but it will increase your production costs.” As for magnesium, he says, anything above 10 times more magnesium than lithium would make the project uneconomic. At Tres Quebrados, the average magnesium–lithium concentrations is less than 1.6. As for sulphate, there is no hard limit (as for the number 10 in magnesium), but most projects have sulphate–lithium ratios above 10 or even 50, while Tres Quebrados has a 0.6 sulphate–lithium ratio. That makes the combined magnesium and sulphate impurities among the lowest of all known salars, he says. While it is still early days and many more studies need to be done, Perez says that the low magnesium and sulphate concentrations at Tres Quebrados could make it one of the lowest-cost lithium projects out there. “The chemistry is clean,

which is encouraging,” he says. Perez adds that so far the chemistry at Tres Quebrados appears to be similar to that of China’s Zhabuye lithium brine deposit in Tibet, which has been in production since 2004. “This type of brine ‘lake’ or reservoir deposit is rare, but it exists, and until now there was just one — Zhabuye. But we have just discovered the second one.” Other positives include its location — the complex is 250 km from the Chilean port of Caldera and is in a part of Argentina that is uninhabited. Tres Quebrados consists of three targets — the northern lithium brine reservoir, the central salar and central brine reservoir, and the southern green salar and brine reservoir. The complex measures 160 sq. km, but the company has staked a 300 sq. km to ensure its hold over the surrounding land package. It also owns 100% of the project and has the rights from surface owners to explore and mine the land.

concentrate prices increasing from US$450 per tonne to US$725 per tonne over the same period. Global supply was at 176,000 tonnes LCE in 2015, with production dominated by six operations owned by four major mining companies, including Albemarle, SQM, FMC (NYSE: FMC) and Sichuan Tianqi Lithium Industries. The report states that out of the 19 advanced projects across the globe, only a handful of new projects are likely to go into production before 2019 — most of which are spodumene, hard-rock lithium deposits. Projects noted include Galaxy Resources and General Mining at

their Mt Cattlin spodumene project near Ravensthorpe, Western Australia; Jiangxi Ganfeng Lithium, Mineral Resources and Neometals’ Mt Marion spodumene project, 40 km from Kalgoorlie, Western Australia; Pilbara Minerals’ Pilgangoora spodumene project, 90 km from Port Hedland, Western Australia; Altura Mining’s Pilgangoora spodumene project located next to Pilbara Minerals’ Pilgangoora project; Orocobre’s (TSX: ORL) Salar de Olaroz in northwest Argentina’s Jujuy province; and Galaxy’s Sal de Vida lithium brine project in Argentina’s Catamarca and Salta provinces.

quality undeveloped brine deposits in the world. The brine deposit has measured and indicated resources of 4.1 million tonnes LCE at grades of 782 milligrams lithium per litre. Inferred resources add 3.2 million tonnes LCE at 718 milligrams lithium per litre. Both calculations assume a cut-off of 500 milligrams lithium per litre. If these new entrants advance to production, Canaccord predicts there could be a modest lithium oversupply in 2018 and 2019, before balancing in 2021, and another 510,000 tonnes LCE may be needed by 2025. To meet the projected demands, exploration for lithium deposits has heated up among junior explorers. Robinson says that many have chosen to “ride the lithium brine wave,” because production costs are “much lower” than those at hard-rock operations, considering operators don’t have to drill, blast, excavate and haul ore. But impurities within the brine — such as magnesium, boron, calcium and strontium — could increase capital and operating costs, as well as production time. “Your lithium content can be lower if there’s not a lot of other stuff in the brine with it,” he says. “The chemistry of the brine is really important — other elements in there can really make processing difficult.” But Robinson remains upbeat on the lithium sector. “This is not just a boom and bust cycle. The fundamentals are there that lithium demand will keep growing.” TNM

Perez still marvels at how NEO Lithium staked its claim in an area where most salars have already been taken. “Argentine geologists and others have been looking for lithium for the last 10 years, so all the salars have been staked by somebody — someone has ownership,” he says. “But this one was missed. It’s amazing, actually, but natural at the same time. If you’re a geologist and you see what looks like a lake, the last thing you want to do is sample it, because you just assume that it’s freshwater, and that it comes from the rivers and the snow. You never think that there will be a whole lake of brine — that’s unprecedented.” Perez notes that the lake is probably not the target — it’s what he calls the “payback hill,” or the exposed part of the orebody. There is brine in the lake, there is brine under the lake and there is brine in

the salar, he explains, the lake is just showing you a part of the orebody. “It would be like if you were looking for oil and you found a lake of oil. This is what we have here only it’s a lake of brine.” As for Perez, he made a name for himself long before he started looking for lithium deposits. He is credited with the discovery and development of the Paso Yobai gold deposit in Paraguay as vicepresident and then CEO of Latin American Minerals (TSXV: LAT). He was also project-generation manager for Barrick Gold (TSX: ABX; NYSE: ABX) and Iamgold (TSX: IMG; NYSE: IAG) in Argentina and directly involved in discovering and developing the Lomada de Leiva gold mine, now owned by Patagonia Gold (TSX: PAT; LSE: PGD), and the El Tranquilo gold deposit, also owned by Patagonia Gold.

Dynacor readies maiden resource at Tumipampa in Peru GOLD-COPPER  

| With Veta Dorada nearing completion, junior will have two small operating mills

BY LESLEY STOKES

lstokes@northernminer.com VANCOUVER

ynacor Gold Mines (TSX: DNG; US-OTC: DNGDF) is preparing to table the first-ever resource calculation at its Tumipampa gold-copper exploration project, 500 km southeast of Lima, Peru. Jean Martineau, Dynacor's president and CEO, told The Northern Miner over the phone as he arrived at the 12th International Gold and Silver Symposium in Lima that the resource will largely encompass the high-grade gold found within the project’s Manto Dorado, Manto Nazareno, and Lisa epithermal vein and mantos systems, and is scheduled for completion soon. He said construction of the company’s 300- to 600-tonne-per-day Veta Dorada processing facility in the town of Chala, 600 km south of Lima, is over 90% complete. The plant is scheduled to process ore bought from artisanal miners by July or August this year. Once complete, Dynacor will own two operating mills in Peru, the other being its Metalex-Huanca plant — a 250-tonne-per-day facility, 450 km south of Lima, that has produced gold and silver since 1998. “The new mill is going to be a big game changer for us, because it will increase our production, and therefore profit,” Martineau said. “We’ll generate substantially more cash over the coming months, which will fund exploration at Tumipampa and drive the project forward.” The company largely used internal cash f lows to pay for the US$15-million plant, he said, but it also used US$5 million from a US$10-million credit facility it closed in January. Dynacor produced 15,807 oz. gold in the first quarter and generated US$20.4 million in sales, ending

the quarter with a net income of US$700,000, or US2¢ per share. The company has released results of a 7,500-metre drill program that included 20 drill holes targeting the mantos and vein systems from underground exploration drifts. A drill intercept from a moderately dipping mineralized structure known as “Manto Dorado” includes 10.21 grams gold per tonne and 0.96% copper over 3.7 true width metres, whereas the parallel-trending Manto Nazareno cut 2.24 grams gold and 4.4% copper over 3.5 true width metres. A steeply dipping vein known as the “Lisa” crosscuts the structures, with drill holes returning 7.14 grams gold over 2.5 true width metres and 8.84 grams gold over 1 true width metre. The work builds upon channel samples taken from drifts and raises along the mineralized structures. The Manto Dorado averaged

27.83 grams gold and 1.7% copper over 1.5 metres wide within a 26-metre-long drift, whereas a 65-metre raise built up-dip along the same mineralization averaged 21.88 grams gold and 1.7% copper over 1.2 metres wide. In the Manto Nazareno structure, the company excavated a 31-metre raise, which averaged 8.87 grams gold at widths of 1.5 metres. In the Lisa vein, a 5-metre drift averaged 16.11 grams gold at 1.9 metres wide. “We did a lot of underground exploration because we had the possibility to start small production there, and we could use our mill to bulk-sample,” Martineau said. The company plans to complete a 1,500-tonne bulk sample and process it in its Metalex-Huanca mill — 18 hours by road from the project — once Veta Dorada comes online. So far, the mineralization has

been traced from surface up to 500 metres down-dip, and Martineau and his team reckons that mineralization could extend for another 2.3 km towards a porphyry system that was discovered during surface exploration late last year. “When we first started with exploration we had just four high-grade gold veins. Now we’ve identified up to 45 gold veins, a huge skarn and a disseminated gold zone at surface — and we think the porphyry could be the mineralized source,” he said. “We have a much bigger project than we thought … and it’s evolving fast.” The porphyry, known as “El Potro,” has been traced at surface for 1.7 km by 750 metres, and returned 25 surface grab samples ranging from 0.01% to 0.2% copper, and 14 samples ranging between 0.1 gram gold to 2.51 grams gold. Only one drill hole in the recent drill program intercepted the

margins of the porphyry system, Martineau noted, revealing altered and fractured core possibly associated with a regional fault zone. A 0.6-metre sample from the drill hole returned 0.2% copper and 0.05 gram gold. Exploration this year, Martineau says, will focus on geochemical and geophysical surface work to better define drill targets across the 48.4 sq. km project area. The company expects to ramp up drilling at Tumipampa once cash flows from Veta Dorada. Tumipampa sits at 4,500 metres above sea level on a barren plateau that straddles the AndahuaylasYauri porphyry and skarn belt to the east and a regionally trending corridor of epithermal gold and silver mineralization to the west — both known to host large base and precious metal deposits. Dynacor’s closest neighbours include MMG, with its Las Bambas copper project to the east; Southern Copper (NYSE: SCCO), with its Los Chancas copper project to the east; Panoro Minerals (TSXV: PML), with its Antilla copper-molybdenum project to the south; and Bear Creek Mining’s (TSXV: BCM) La Yegua copper-molybdenum-gold project to the northeast. North and northeast are Minas Buenaventura’s (NYSE: BVN) Orcopampa gold-silver mine; Hochschild Mining’s (US-OTC: HCHDF) Arcata gold-silver and Pallancata silver projects; Hudbay Minerals’ (TSX: HBM; NYSE: HBM) Constancia gold-copper mine; and First Quantum Minerals’ (TSX: FM) Haquira copper-gold project. Dynacor has US$7.3-million cash in its treasury and its shares have traded within a 52-week range of $1.30 to $2.32 per share, and at $2.09 at press time. The company has 37.4 million shares outstanding for a $75.2-million market capitalization. TNM
