Interview with Award Winning Ross McElroy, COO of Fission Uranium (TSX: FCU, OTCQX: FCUUF, FRANKFURT: 2FU) in the Athabasca Basin, High-Grade, Over 100 Million Pounds Deposit and Only 50 Meters below Surface
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA

Fission Uranium (TSX: FCU, OTCQX: FCUUF, FRANKFURT: 2FU) is a premier Uranium explorer operating in Canada's Athabasca Basin, home to the world's richest source of high-grade uranium. The company's flagship project, PLS, hosts the Athabasca Basin’s most significant high-grade, near-surface deposit (the Triple R) as well as the region’s largest mineralized trend. We learned from Ross McElroy, COO of Fission Uranium, that one of the things that really differentiate this project from any other uranium project worldwide, including anything else in the Athabasca Basin, is not only the high grade and the size, which is over 100 million pounds, but the fact that it starts at 50 meters below the surface. Nobody else has this kind of high-grade deposit that's this shallow. The 2015 PEA showed that this could be a very low cost producer on par with some of the lowest cost producers in uranium assets anywhere in the world. According to Mr. McElroy, Fission Uranium has the best exploration team in this business and a diverse board with a lot of experience, with the two newest members of the board from the Chinese utility company, CGN, that had bought 19.99% of Fission earlier this year for $82 million. In 2016 Fission Uranium is focusing on growing its resource, as well as making new discoveries on the property, and Mr. McElroy invites everyone to have a look at a company called CoreBox ( to see the progress of the summer drill program at PLS.

Interview with Christian Easterday, Managing Director of Hot Chili (ASX: HCH): High Grade Gold Being Added to One of the World’s Lowest Capital Intensity Large Scale New Copper Developments. Located within the Iron Oxide/Copper-Gold Belt of Chile
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA

Hot Chili Ltd. (ASX: HCH) is an Australian company, focused on its very large-scale Productora copper porphyry deposit, located within the iron oxide/copper-gold belt of Chile 15km south of the town of Vallenar in Chile’s Region III. Productora is a very infrastructure-rich project, standing out as one of the lowest capital intensity large scale new copper projects to be developed. We learned from Christian Easterday, Managing Director of Hot Chili, that the company is fast-tracking a very low cost, rapid assessment of a high-grade gold deposit, recently discovered in the southern extent of Productora. Next steps for Hot Chili will be advancing Productora to a decision to mine, while in parallel, making preparations towards the first major drilling program to be directed over what appears to represent approximately 1 billion tons of additional growth potential in the main copper-gold asset. According to Mr. Easterday, Hot Chili is a very consolidated company, has very strong funding support and is partnered with CAP Mineria, one of Chile's largest resource majors. The company has a very strong news flow lined up for the coming 6 to 12 months. Productora is an asset that will be at the front of the queue of the next wave of copper price escalation. Most importantly for investors- it is the emergence of a very robust looking high grade gold deposit which looks likely to be turning heads- with the drill rods due to start turning soon also.

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.

Interview with Dr. Morgan Poliquin, President and CEO Almaden Minerals Limited (TSX: AMM; NYSE MKT: AAU): Owns Ixtaca Gold-Silver Deposit in Eastern Mexico, About Three and a Half Million Gold Equivalent Ounces
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA

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. This is a gold and silver vein system with about three and a half million ounces of 43-101 compliant resource in gold equivalent. Recently they produced a PEA that focused on a mine plan for a higher grade portion of the deposit, about 1.6 million ounce gold equivalent open pit and a conventional mill. They expect the pre-feasibility study based on the PEA to be completed later this year. According to Morgan Poliquin, President and CEO of Almaden, they will make a production decision sometime next year. We learned from Dr. Poliquin that he completed his PhD in eastern Mexico and has a lot of proprietary knowledge on this area. The company has access to inexpensive drilling through its sister company, Almadex Minerals Limited (TSXV: AMZ), which owns its own drills and can take a project from early stage prospecting and target definition all the way through resource and engineering level drilling. They have no debt, a clean balance sheet and capital to push forward. Almaden’s excellent team has a track record of making new discoveries, and has found a number of deposits that have become mines.

Jim Greig, President and CEO of Crystal Exploration (TSX.V: CEI.V): New Canadian Diamond Exploration Company that Recently Acquired Three Exceptionally Good Diamond Assets in Nunavut, Canada
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA

Crystal Exploration, Inc. (TSX.V: CEI.V) is a new Canadian diamond exploration company that recently acquired three exceptionally good diamond assets in Nunavut, Canada. The most advanced property, called Muskox project, is located approximately 150 kms north of the Ekati Diamond Mine.

Mining Chemicals Market Analysis By Product, By Application And Segment Forecasts To 2024
NEW YORK, Sept. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The global mining chemicals market is expected to reach USD 38.01 billion by 2024, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Positive mining industry outlook in India, China, Australia, Peru, and Chile is expected to drive the market over the forecast period. The presence of abundant raw materials including rare earth metals in China, Russia, Australia, Thailand, and the U.S. is expected to facilitate exploration activities, thus propelling demand for the product.

Australia has the third largest rare earth metal reserves in the world. In Russia, companies have been investing increasingly in the development of new extraction techniques to recover uranium. These factors are likely to have a positive impact on growth. Decrease in ore quality of zinc, lead, copper, and nickel is expected to promote utilization of sophisticated technologies requiring frothers, flocculants, grinding aids, and solvent extractants.

Further key findings from the report suggest:

Grinding aids dominated the global market accounting for over 40.0% of the global market share in 2015. Grinding aids help in improvement of the extraction process and requires low maintenance. In addition, utilization of grinding aids for the mining process reduces pollution and other harmful effects on the environment. Increasing concerns regarding the cost of grinding the minerals are expected to propel utilization of grinding aids over the forecast period.

Explosives & Drilling application dominated the market in 2015 and is projected to be the fastest growing segment owing to rapid depletion of shallow surface reserves which has led to the requirement of deep surface mining activities. Moreover, mining chemicals are also utilized for the efficient breaking of rocks during mining, thereby reducing cost and saving time during mineral processing.

Asia Pacific accounted for over 40.0% market share in 2015 and is projected to witness the fastest growth on account of the rapid industrial development and increasing focus on sustainability. Market players have been investing increasingly in the mining industry in the region which is expected to have a positive impact on demand for mining chemicals.

In June 2013, BASF established its new R&D laboratory in Johannesburg, to develop new mining chemicals and product differentiation. High raw material cost coupled with high logistic cost is expected to restrain entry of new players in the industry. High capital cost is also expected to be a major restraint for the manufacturers. In addition, stringent government regulations to reduce environmental pollution are expected to have an adverse impact on the market players over the next eight years.
