Carpentaria Exploration, Limited (ASX: CAP) is an emerging producer of iron ore in eastern Australia. The company aims to build a long term, low cost premium quality iron ore business from the development of its flagship asset, the Hawsons Iron Project, utilizing existing infrastructure. Hawsons Iron Project is the largest magnetite discovery in eastern Australia. Located only 60 kilometres from Broken Hill, a mining city in the far west of outback New South Wales, Australia. It is near the border with South Australia on the crossing of the Barrier Highway (A32) and the Silver City Highway (B79), in the Barrier Range. Hawsons has access to established rail, road, port and power infrastructure in a region with a long, proud mining history and a town with generations of skilled mining workers. We learned from Quentin Hill, Managing Director of Carpentaria Exploration, the Hawsons Iron Project is extremely high grade and will supply the world's best pellet feed at competitive production costs. According to Mr. Hill, there are very few projects that can supply high-grade material and pellet feed, and be incentivized into production at the long-term iron ore prices. This makes Hawsons Iron Project strategically very important and Mr. Hill believes this will help them get the funding required.

Interview with Peter Clausi, President, CEO and Director of CBLT Inc., Discussion of Cobalt Market and their Cobalt Assets in Ontario and Quebec
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA

According to Peter Clausi, CEO of CBLT Inc., cobalt - which is one of the main ingredients in lithium-ion batteries - is in a global deficit position. As 60% of the world's cobalt comes from the Congo in Africa, there's been a disruption of the supply chain, due to the horrible period of war, pestilence, political corruption, and famine in the country since the late 1990s. In other parts of the world, cobalt comes as a byproduct of copper/nickel operations that underwent a tough market recently. As a result, we are losing global cobalt supply. This will soon choke the fast growing lithium-ion market as cobalt prices will skyrocket. The company's main asset is located in the world famous Sudbury Basin in Ontario and holds gold and cobalt mineralization in a quartz vein. Other projects are located in Quebec and in the world famous Cobalt Embayment.
