Joseph Grosso, Executive Chairman, CEO and President of Golden Arrow Corporation (TSX-V: GRG): 100% owned Chinchillas Silver Project, Strategic Partnership with Silver Standard, Accelerating Development
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


Golden Arrow Resources Corporation (TSX-V: GRG) is focused on its 100% owned Chinchillas Silver Project located in the province of Jujuy, Argentina. We learned from Joseph Grosso, Executive Chairman, CEO and President of Golden Arrow, that the strategic partnership has been worked out with Silver Standard who owns nearby Pirquitas Silver project that is near the end of its mine life. This could allow Golden Arrow to use the Pirquitas mine infrastructure and to start exploitation of the Chinchillas deposit within one year instead of waiting six or seven years. According to Mr. Grosso what makes Golden Arrow stand out from other mining companies is the decision they made 23 years ago to become the early stage developer of mining in Argentina, a country with huge geology potential that had zero mining going on in 1993. According to Mr. Grosso the new government in Argentina is mining-friendly, and with the turn in the market the company will continue its quest towards new discoveries.

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.

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.

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.

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.
