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.

We learned from Glen Van Treek, President, CEO and director of Paramount Gold Nevada, that currently they are conducting a pre-feasibility study on the Grassy Mountain project. The goal is to have the mine permitted sometime in 2018 or early '19, and to start building the mine.

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.

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


Dataram (NASDAQ:DRAM) is a leading independent manufacturer of computer memory products and technology oriented performance solutions. Recently, to diversify their operations and enhance shareholder value, the Company decided to acquire US Gold Corp. along with the advanced stage Copper King gold exploration project that has a 43-101 technical report, and a PEA done in 2012. Dataram is in the process of updating the PEA with the new gold, copper and energy prices, by the end of the summer. According to Ed Karr, CEO of US Gold and director of Dataram, the project is very viable and robust, with real economic potential. It has about 926,000 ounces of measured indicated gold, 174,000 ounces of inferred gold plus additional 223 million measured and 62.5 million indicated pounds of copper. In addition, the mineralization extends both North and South, holding upside potential for additional exploration discoveries. The company's VP of Exploration is Dave Mathewson, the world-class geologist, who is credited with discovering Nevada's Rain mining district. He brought with him another exciting project called the Keystone property that has potential to become the next great gold discovery in Nevada. We learned from Mr. Karr, US Gold's business model is to buy good high potential exploration properties, advance them towards production, and then ultimately do a deal.

by Al Alper, Jr. President of Metals News


We learned from Laura Evans, Director of Advancement at the Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa, the museum was born out of the Geological Survey of Canada. The deepest roots of the museum date back to the geological exploration of Canada. For over 150 years, they've been exploring the natural world, which often yields all kinds of interesting rocks, minerals, and gems, so there are lots of ties between the two worlds. They are working on an interesting project right now hoping to repatriate the Foxfire Diamond back to Canada, and offer it a permanent home at the Canadian Museum of Nature.
