According to Mr. Reid, who has a great deal of experience in developing projects and getting them to production, Bunker Hill is easily the largest and most important project he'll ever work on. At the time it was shut down there were 60 million tons of historical resource still in the ground and the company is currently focusing on one of the most promising zones on the property. Near term plans include financing and underground drilling to complete a 43-101 resource on the Quill Zone. After that they expect to design the mine plan for the first 18 to 22 years and make a number of repairs.

Michael Tamlin, COO, Neometals Ltd (ASX: NMT): Discusses Progress of Their Value-Added Integrated Lithium, Titanium and Cobalt Chemical Production Strategy
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


We learned from Michael Tamlin, COO of Neometals Ltd (ASX: NMT), that they are an Australian minerals project developer and chemical production company with a primary focus on adding value to resources in the ground to produce a relevant product in global markets. The company's principal activities are related to lithium and titanium. They are adding cobalt to their portfolio through battery recycling. Neometals' main project is the high-grade Mt Marion Lithium JV project with Mineral Resources Ltd and Ganfeng Lithium. In the titanium space, they have the early stage, Barrambie Deposit in Western Australia. Neometals have also developed a process, now in pilot stage, which can extract cobalt, lithium, nickel, and copper at high purity and return them to the battery manufacturing process. According to Mr. Tamlin, last year, the company paid two dividends to its shareholders, and have been engaged in a share buyback program this year. The company is debt free and has positive cash. Plans, for the next 2-3 years, include taking the Mt Marion project from a concentrate producer into a lithium hydroxide producer, which will uplift the value of their lithium unit by a significant amount.

Ascot Resources Limited (TSX.V: AOT): Large Scale High-Grade Gold Targets of 20M Oz in the Golden Triangle of British Columbia, Interview with Bob Evans, CFO and Director
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


Ascot Resources Limited (TSX.V: AOT) is a focused gold and silver explorer with a portfolio of advanced and grassroots projects in the Golden Triangle region of British Columbia. The company’s flagship Premier Project is a near-term high-grade advanced exploration project, with large upside potential. We learned from Bob Evans, CFO and Director of Ascot Resources, that the most significant development is that Ascot has exercised its option to acquire the Premier and Dilworth properties. According to Mr. Evans, there is excellent infrastructure around the project so the cost of putting in an operation will be substantially lower than a lot of comparable mines. We also learned from Mr. Evans, that there is some spectacular high grade found just north of the Premier mine area, and Ascot is planning to come up with an NI 43-101 resource at the end of this year's drilling campaign.
