Interview with Stan Bharti, Chairman and Acting CEO of Aberdeen International (TSX: AAB): a Successful Global Resource Investment Company and Merchant Bank
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


Aberdeen International (TSX: AAB) is a global resource investment company and merchant bank focused on small-cap companies in the mining and metals sector. We learned from Stan Bharti, Chairman and acting CEO of Aberdeen International, who has a very successful track record, that today the company has two major investments: one is close to a US $15 million investment in a private South-African platinum-palladium company called African Thunder, and the other is an investment in one of the largest advanced lithium resources in the world called Lithium X, located in Argentina. African Thunder is a producing mine with close to a million ounces of platinum and palladium and a huge exploration upside that was put on standby because of low prices, but there is a plan to reactivate it in the beginning of 2017. Aberdeen owns approximately 50% of African Thunder with the other 50% owned by a company in Switzerland. Lithium X is a well-developed resource that is completing its feasibility study. According to Mr. Bharti, these are both world-class assets that, over the next two or three years, in a good market, will unlock substantial value for Aberdeen. In addition, Aberdeen had several other assets, including coal and gold that have been sold to build a small resource fund that helps fund investments like the lithium project. Aberdeen manages this fund, which has already grown from about $8 million to $10 million in assets in less than a year.

Brooke Macdonald, President and CEO of Cornerstone Capital Resources (TSXV: CGP, F: GWN, B: GWN, OTC-CTNXF): a Prospect Generator Following the Joint Venture Model with a Diversified Portfolio of Projects in Ecuador
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


Cornerstone Capital Resources Inc. (TSXV: CGP, F: GWN, B: GWN, OTC-CTNXF) is a mineral exploration company and a prospect generator following the joint venture model with a diversified portfolio of projects in Ecuador and Chile. The anchor in the company right now is the 15% interest in a property in Ecuador called Cascabel that has the potential to become a very large gold enriched copper porphyry deposit. The operator of the project, an Australian company called SolGold, has announced it is putting together the first inferred resource toward the end of the year. According to Brooke Macdonald, President and CEO of Cornerstone, deposits like Cascabel are very hard to find, and has already attracted the interest of major mining companies. We learned from Mr. Macdonald that Ecuador is the last under-explored part of the Andes and likely to be the place where large deposits are discovered in the near future at lower cost than in other places. Cornerstone entered into a strategic alliance with ENAMI EP of Ecuador, the state mining company, in order to explore for new areas together. In addition to Cascabel, Cornerstone owns several properties in Ecuador that are drill ready, and an early stage gold-silver-copper property called Miocene in Chile. The company is well funded with enough money to last several years without going back to the market.

Almaden Minerals Limited (TSX: AMM; NYSE MKT: AAU) is advancing its wholly owned Ixtaca Gold-Silver Deposit in eastern Mexico that the company discovered back in 2010.

by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA

We learned from Normand Champigny, President and CEO of Sphinx, that there are three criteria they are looking for in a potential project: First, good infrastructure with road access; second, good social acceptability; and third, areas with precious metal potential in high grade metamorphic terrains. According to Mr. Champigny the key factor that sets Sphinx apart is the team, which includes three mine finders with tremendous experience in the industry and deep knowledge of doing work in Quebec. The company's project generator business model is set up to minimize dilution. Having a number of promising projects maximizes the chances of discovery.

Interview with Stephen G. Roman, Chairman, President and CEO of Harte Gold (TSX: HRT, FSE: H4O, OTC: HRTFF): Generating Cash Flow through Bulk Sample Program then into Commercial Production upon Receipt of Commercial Permits
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


We spoke with Stephen G. Roman, Chairman, President and CEO of Harte Gold (TSX: HRT, FSE: H4O, OTC: HRTFF), about the progress of the advanced exploration and bulk sample program at their 100% owned Sugar Zone Deposit located in Ontario, 60 kilometers east of the Hemlo Gold Camp. So far they have produced more tons than expected, and the grades have been higher than expected. The company is generating a free cash flow now through this bulk sample program and would like to be able to continue mining until they get their commercial permits, and then move right in to commercial production. According to Mr. Roman, they expect to generate over 5 million of profit at the end of this bulk sample phase and then once they go into commercial production, they expect to generate significant profits, doing between 70 and 80 thousand ounces a year of production. We learned from Mr. Roman that the company has excellent exploration upside and on July 20th they will start drilling targets between Wolf Zone and Sugar Zone with the aim to be well over a million ounces by the end of the year.

Interview with Lee Barker, President and CEO of Sparton Resources (TSX.V: SRI): Completed Commissioning of the Zhangbei Project's 8 Megawatt Hour Vanadium Flow Battery
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA

Sparton Resources Inc. (TSX.V: SRI) completed commissioning of the Zhangbei Project's 8 Megawatt Hour Vanadium Flow Battery earlier this year and its client recently received payment of approximately $C3.2 million from the battery's owner, State Grid North China Company. The ongoing maintenance program revenue over the next 3 years will also provide cash flow. These payments will accrue to Sparton’s operating subsidiary company in China. According to Lee Barker, President and CEO of Sparton Resources, the vanadium flow battery is much better than lithium for large scale energy storage: they can go 100,000 cycles of fully charging and discharging, they don't lose charge while being idle, they operate in cold temperatures and warm temperatures, they don't have to be air-conditioned in hot environments, they are not flammable, better for computer systems backup, because the electricity in the vanadium battery can be discharged almost instantaneously, for large-scale storage, these batteries are about 1/3 the cost of a similar sized lithium battery, when you factor in the life of the battery over time; and at the end of their life, they are fully recyclable. There is an incredible market for large energy storage all over the world. Sparton also has access to clean and pure primary vanadium deposits in China that they believe will be developed. They are currently in the process of negotiating with various potential strategic partners to acquire the battery manufacturer and develop these deposits. This way they could potentially build a company with the source for the raw material that can make the vanadium flow batteries, and get a cost benefit from that and make it more competitive in the marketplace.
