New Rare Earths Resource Estimate Showcases World-Class Project

Appia Rare Earths & Uranium (CSE: API) (OTCQX: APAAF) will already be familiar to many readers via a previous full-length feature article [https://ibn.fm/x9U2v].

In that piece, we labeled the previous spectacular drill results from Appia’s PCH Ionic Adsorption Clays Project “a game-changer”.

Since that time, Appia has released a maiden mineral resource estimate (“MRE”) for the PCH Project based upon that drilling data. The impressive numbers for this REE deposit fully justify our original assessment.

Appia Announces Maiden Rare Earth Mineral Resource Estimate of 6.6 Million Tonnes Indicated Grading 2,513 ppm TREO and 46.2 Million Tonnes Inferred grading 2,888 ppm TREOat the PCH Ionic Adsorption Clay Project in Goiás, Brazil

While the headline is a lot to absorb, the headline numbers are, once again, spectacular.

  • A 6.6 million tonne Indicated REE resource, grading at 2,513 ppm total rare earths oxide (“TREO”)
  • A 46.2 million tonne Inferred resource, grading at 2,888 ppm TREO

The full technical report [https://ibn.fm/vWJZz] on this maiden resource estimate has just been released on April 16, 2024 [https://ibn.fm/w02k1].

With rare earths mining just emerging in the Western world, even many mining investors may not be able to put these grades into context. Appia’s senior management shared their insights with investors.

CEO Tom Drivas presented the Big Picture for investors.

With an estimated 6.6 million tonnes of high-grade mineralization in the indicated category and 46.2 million tonnes of high-grade mineralization in the inferred category, and with some of the highest TREO grades in the world, we are well on our way to establishing the company as a leader not only in Brazil, but around the globe.

These world-class grades are hosted in “weathered material” in a near-surface ionic adsorption clays REE deposit. We’ll explain the significance of this at greater length later in the article.

Appia’s President, Stephen Burega, shone a spotlight on some of the important details from this news.

Today’s announcement is very important to the company and our shareholders, and this is only the beginning for this amazing project. We have delineated a combined resource of 52.8 million tonnes of high-grade mineralization in an area of only 483 hectares across both target zones.  Appia is continuing its exploratory auger drilling program to test multiple new target areas across the PCH project which covers over 40,000 hectares.

Literally just scratching the surface of this huge REE project. And as we previously noted to readers, mining exploration in an ionic adsorption clays formation is extremely economical.

The drilling data for this initial resource estimate was taken from the drill results of 138 RC drillholes and 1 Diamond drillhole [https://ibn.fm/fMELn]. The total cost of the campaign to date is only ~USD$1 million.

What is the potential for resource expansion with respect to this world-class REE resource?

Mineralization remains open at depth as well as being open laterally. Translation: there is robust potential for REE resource expansion at the PCH Project just with respect to the REE resource from the Target IV and Buriti Zones.

This is a huge land package of >40,000 hectares, and several other high-priority targets have already been identified. Much of the PCH geology exhibits the potential for additional (highly-coveted) ionic clays deposits.

For even greater understanding here, IBN reached out to additional members from Appia’s management team.

A truism in mining is that world-class projects attract world-class teams. Appia boasts an abundance of expertise in assessing the quality of this REE asset.

As we indicated earlier, the PCH REE resource is comprised mostly of weathered material, versus the primary mineralization in which most REE mineralization is hosted.

One person with a particular appreciation for this important distinction is renowned REE expert, Jack Lifton. A noted consultant, author and lecturer in the mining industry, Lifton has been added to Appia’s management team as a REE & Critical Minerals Advisor.

We asked Lifton to explain the significance of high-grade REE mineralization hosted in the weathered material of an ionic adsorption clays formation versus primary mineralization.

Ionic adsorption clays are uniquely important formations from which essentially all of the demand for the higher atomic numbered rare earths, also known as heavy rare earths, are recovered.

Unlike hard rock deposits of rare earths, which require blasting, excavating, crushing, grinding, flotation and acid leaching to extract the desired elements, IACs require only an extraction wash with a water solution of ammonium sulphate, A common agricultural fertilizer. This can often be done in place (in situ). This technique is among the lowest cost mineral extraction regimens known in mining today.

Most IACs contain little or no radioactive companion metals to the rare earths.

Appia’s Brazilian discoveries are not only massive in their total tonnage, but are the richest concentrations of heavy rare earths, as well as of the light magnet rare earths, neodymium and praseodymium, in an ionic adsorption clay that I have ever seen.

“The richest concentrations” of REE in an ionic adsorption clay resource. That’s high praise, coming from a world-renowned REE expert.

In these ionic clays, rare earths mineralization is in the form of free-standing particles, almost like an alluvial formation. This is why only minimal processing is required.

With the REE in these ionic adsorption clays formations typically exhibiting much lower radioactivity, this further simplifies the production process.

This implies significant savings in both the capital costs of a (potential) mining operation as well as operating costs.

The weathered material in which this near-surface REE deposit is hosted also implies a faster timeline for mine construction and a quicker production process. This translates into additional savings in both capital costs and operating costs.

When CEO Drivas referred to the PCH Project as having “some of the highest TREO grades in the world”, this is with respect to a REE ionic clays deposit. Higher TREO grades can be found with respect to REE hosted in less-desirable geological formations.

However, demonstrating the importance of this type of ionic adsorption clay geology for REE production, most of the world’s supply of rare earths (predominately from China) are also hosted in similar geological formations.

When you combine the world-class grades and mining-friendly geology of the PCH Ionic Adsorption Clay Project with the enormous potential for resource expansion investors begin to understand the excitement that is percolating within Appia’s management team.

It’s more than just REE grades. It’s also the composition of the PCH resource, as previously stressed by Jack Lifton.

The PCH Project maiden resource is rich in the rare earths that are most heavily in demand today: praseodymium (Pr), neodymium (Nd), terbium (Tb), and dysprosium (Dy).

This is shown in the “basket prices” of the REE contained in the deposit that was also released with the PCH Project resource estimate.

With stellar grades hosting a very desirable mix of REE, in geology that is optimal for REE mineralization, the question that will be on the mind of many investors is what is next for Appia in developing this world-class asset?

For guidance here, we turned to another one of the experts from Appia’s management team. Don Hains (P.Geo) is a Consulting Geologist and REE Critical Minerals Advisor for Appia.

However, Hains expertise goes beyond his 40+ year career as a geologist. He also has an intimate understanding of the processing and markets for these industrial minerals – particularly REE. Perhaps no one is more familiar with the geology of the huge land package on which the PCH Project is situated than Hains.

Target IV and the Buriti Zone (which hosts the existing REE resource) is open both laterally and at depth. Other high-priority targets on the property also exhibit similar geology to the defined REE deposit.

The drill results to date are very encouraging. Seeing consistent depths and grade of ionic clay mineralization across Target IV and Buriti confirms the initial thesis that the deposit has great potential. The geology and mineralization seen at Target IV and Buriti appears to extend to other areas of the PCH project, indicating great exploration potential within the ionic clay horizon.

With the operational focus remaining on Target IV and the Buriti Zone, at least at present, this opens up interesting possibilities with respect to both upcoming drill results and Project development.

Rare earths are essential in powering most of today’s leading technologies, from electric vehicles to smartphones. As we indicated in our first Appia feature article, the supply of REE from China (which accounts for roughly 90% of the market) is increasingly in doubt.

This means that the development of Western-based rare earths projects is essential for our own future economic development.

For investors interested in capitalizing on this important economic trend, Appia Rare Earths & Uranium provides a world-class opportunity – still at an early stage of development.

Securing a Domestic Supply Chain: Why Fathom Nickel Inc. (CSE: FNI) (FSE: 6Q5) (OTCQB: FNICF) Matters for North America

  • North America is deeply dependent on foreign nickel, which is a position of weakness for meeting EV and carbon goals
  • Canada has the potential to once again be a dominant player in nickel production thanks to companies like Fathom Nickel
  • The company holds a dominant land position in the prolific Trans Hudson Corridor, controlling over 113,000 hectares of highly prospective property, inclusive of a past producing nickel mine

The rise and fall of Canada’s nickel production in recent years highlights a critical issue for North America – dependence on foreign sources of this essential metal. Despite a resurgence in 2023, Canada’s output (180,000 MT) still doesn’t meet overall demand. The nation ranked fifth globally in nickel production behind Indonesia, Philippines, New Caledonia, and Russia. This reliance on external suppliers, particularly for a resource like nickel that’s crucial for clean energy technologies like electric vehicle batteries, poses significant risks.

By bolstering domestic production and exploration, North America can ensure a stable and secure supply chain for the future, reducing dependence on foreign markets and potential disruptions. Canada’s Sudbury Basin, home to Vale’s massive nickel operation, and the metal-rich Trans Hudson Corridor – home to Fathom Nickel and a massive land package of its own – presents a prime opportunity for North America to strengthen its domestic nickel production and establish greater control over this vital resource.

The Trans Hudson Corridor is a treasure trove for miners. This sprawling geological region stretches from the famed Homestead Gold Mine in the U.S. well into Canada, brimming with known deposits of nickel, copper, gold, and platinum group metals. But the real allure lies in the vast potential for undiscovered riches waiting to be unearthed.

That’s where Fathom Nickel (CSE: FNI) (FSE: 6Q5) (OTCQB: FNICF) is starting to shine, gaining investor attention for its commanding land position at the elbow of the Trans-Hudson Corridor where it turns east in Saskatchewan to head throughout the eastern part of the country. Fathom is an exploration company that is targeting magmatic nickel sulfide discoveries to support the rapidly growing global electric vehicle market.

Prime Location & Past Success

Fathom boasts over 113,000 hectares of prime exploration ground within a region consistently ranked among the top five for mineral exploration by the Fraser Institute.

One of Fathom’s key projects, the Albert Lake Project, covers a vast 90,000+ hectares and is no stranger to nickel production. Historical records show successful mining from an open pit operation between 1965-1969, yielding over 26,000 tons of nickel, copper, and platinum group elements with promising grades. This past success, coupled with the fact that most nickel discoveries were from large, underexplored outcrops, hints at significant untapped potential.

Beyond Albert Lake, Fathom owns the 22,000+ hectare Gochager Lake Project, strategically located near the border of prospective geological domains. Historical data (1967-1970) suggests the presence of a significant nickel deposit, with estimates exceeding 4.3 million tons at 0.295% Ni and 0.081% Cu. Historic drilling produced similar results, showing grades of 0.581% Ni and 0.113% Cu over a width of 290.4 meters.

This is a portfolio not typical of a company with a C$9 million market cap. In a world where anomalies are cherished, Fathom Nickel is one itself amongst microcaps.

Drilling conducted in 2018 yielded encouraging results too, confirming the presence of significant sulfide mineralization within the historic deposit. This mineralization ranged from semi-massive to massive, indicating potentially high concentrations of valuable metals.

Modern Exploration & Drilling Programs

Fathom isn’t relying solely on past results. They’ve utilized cutting-edge technology to survey and sample the land at Albert Lake, identifying high-priority targets based on both new and historical data.  Following initial drilling in 2023, a new 4-week drill program launched in February. This initiative promises to deliver critical data for building a robust resource estimate. Six holes were drilled amounting to 1,386 meters.

In March, the initial drilling was completed on time at Albert Lake. Subsequently, the drill and crew were mobilized the Gochager Lake Project. Drilling commenced at the Gochager Lake Project on March 12 and is expected to continue through mid-April 2024. anticipates drilling 2000-2500 meters in 5-7 drillholes. Investors will now be watching for a steady stream of drill results to validate historic results and continue to build the database undergirding a new resource estimate in the future.

Expanding Portfolio & Future Exploration

Fathom recently secured $4.57 million through a private placement, providing the necessary funds to advance exploration at both Albert Lake and Gochager Lake. Investors can expect a wealth of new data emerging this spring and summer, potentially solidifying Fathom Nickel’s position as a major player in the nickel exploration space.

Essentials to Know When Marketing a Reg A or Reg CF Capital Raise

Regulation A (Reg A) and Regulation Crowdfunding (Reg CF) offer alternatives to traditional financing such as bank loans, venture capital, or initial public offerings (“IPOs”). While traditional financing typically involves stringent eligibility criteria, a lengthy approval process and substantial fees, Reg A and Reg CF provide greater flexibility for raising capital.

  • Marketing a Reg A or Reg CF capital raise involves understanding the target audience, crafting compelling messages, and utilizing multiple channels such as social media, email campaigns, and press releases
  • Compliance with SEC regulations is crucial for issuers, including adherence to advertising restrictions and providing accurate and comprehensive information about the offering
  • The Reg A & Crowdfunding Conference 2024 hosted June 20 by DealFlow Events promises to deliver valuable insights on marketing strategies, deal activity projections, IP protection, and more
  • Companies actively considering Reg A or Reg CF may qualify for a free ticket

Startups, early-stage companies, and small businesses are increasingly attracted to Reg CF, which allows them to raise capital from both accredited and non-accredited individuals through online platforms registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Under Reg CF, businesses can raise up to $5 million annually without the stringent requirements of traditional financing. Reg CF also typically comes with regulatory exemptions and streamlined processes that make it more accessible and cost-effective for new companies.

Reg A allows companies to raise up to $75 million annually through a public offering without the rigorous requirements of a full IPO. Reg A offerings are subject to certain disclosure and reporting requirements to the SEC, offering investors transparency and oversight while providing companies with a streamlined approach to raising capital.

Marketing your Reg A or Reg CF successfully is critical. An effective strategy begins with understanding your target audience and crafting a compelling message that resonates with their interests and investment objectives. Multiple channels are available to help you reach that audience, including social media, email campaigns, press releases, and events. Successful marketing also hinges on establishing credibility through full disclosure that details the investment process and platforms used throughout the capital raise.

There are also regulatory and legal considerations that issuers must follow to ensure compliance with the SEC. Issuers must be aware of the restrictions on advertising the terms of the offering and follow specific guidelines outlined by the SEC to avoid misleading investors. Further, issuers are required to provide accurate and comprehensive information about the offering, including the business model, financial standing, and risks.

Crafting a compelling marketing strategy requires a multi-faceted and detailed approach to ensure fundraising success.

The advent of the Internet, and increasingly smart computerized technology, has made the world an interconnected place, granting powerful informational tools to help people meet daily challenges.

However, those same tools can also be used abusively by bad players, including domestic violence and other offenders acting as cyberstalkers with malicious intent. A report by social justice media outlet Reckon notes that about a third of all women and a sixth of all men have been stalked at some point — usually by an acquaintance or former partner, but sometimes by a stranger. The report cites statistics showing that about 80 percent of stalking victims report that technology was used to monitor them, threaten them, or cause damage to their reputations (https://ibn.fm/ZnqxR).

A recent Netflix docuseries “Can I Tell You a Secret?” has drawn millions of viewers into the real-life travails of three women targeted for more than a decade by an English cybercriminal, highlighting the limitations of overall legal and criminal justice systems in stopping such criminals from continuing their behavior (https://ibn.fm/S67sy). A TikTok influencer’s current cyberstalking dilemma (https://ibn.fm/g4f6M), as well as the continuing property intruder difficulties plaguing billionaire pop star Taylor Swift (https://ibn.fm/rCAn4), have shown that such legal limitations appear to be an ongoing concern.

The Race is On: Declining Production Pushes for New Gold and Copper Mines, Highlights the Value of Torr Metals Inc. (TSX.V: TMET)

  • With about 70% of the world’s known gold reserves mined, there is a growing urgency to discover and develop new gold and copper mines
  • Torr Metals searching is searching for the next big gold & copper deposit across its 1,100 km² of 100% owned highway-accessible projects located in some of Canada’s most prolific mining jurisdictions
  • Recent findings at the Kolos Copper-Gold Project defined a previously unknown trend to Cu-Au ± Mo mineralization with multiple potential undrilled porphyry centers stretching over 7 kilometers adjacent to Highway 5

Gold has been treasured for its beauty and value for thousands of years. The shine on gold might not be dimming, but its supply is. Declining production from existing mines and dwindling reserves are creating a pressing need for new virgin discoveries and development projects.

Several factors are contributing to the supply squeeze. Firstly, many existing gold mines are reaching the end of their productive lifespans. These mines were often opened decades ago, exploiting the most readily accessible and high-grade deposits. To that point, it is estimated that about 170,000 metric tons of the total 244,000 metric tons ever discovered have already been mined. Secondly, stricter environmental regulations and permitting processes can make it more challenging to open new mines, reinforcing the value of new discoveries within known mining districts where regulations are already well established.

Copper: A Look at Demand

Copper and gold mining frequently go together, and copper supply has been sluggish too. Data from the International Copper Study Group reveals a concerning trend: global mined copper output has stagnated at around 21.8 million tons in 2022. This represents minimal growth of only 1 million tons over the last three years.

Meanwhile, demand for both gold and copper show no signs of abating.  Gold’s status as a safe-haven asset during economic uncertainty continues to attract investors.  Copper, a critical component in renewable energy technologies and electronics, is experiencing surging demand due to the global push for clean energy.

Torr: The Future of Supply

This mismatch between declining production and rising demand highlights the need for a new wave of exploration discovery and mine development. Exploration companies are actively searching for new gold and copper deposits, with a focus on higher-grade resources to make extraction commercially viable. Governments are also starting to streamline permitting processes to balance environmental concerns with the need for responsible resource development.

The race is on to secure these valuable resources, Torr Metals (TSX.V: TMET) is on a mission to uncover the next major discovery with a focus on safe, highway-accessible mining districts where major mining companies, including Newmont and Teck, are actively operating or acquiring new copper and gold assets. With three underexplored district-scale copper and gold projects covering nearly 1,100 square kilometers Torr is well positioned for new discovery potential with 12 undrilled copper-gold porphyry and epithermal exploration targets, as well as expansion potential with one porphyry deposit adjacent to Highway 37.

The Trio

For instance, Torr’s 100% owned 689 km2 Latham Copper-Gold Project is located within the prolific Golden Triangle of northern British Columbia, Canada. The Golden Triangle is a mineral-rich region famous for gold, copper, and silver deposits.  It’s a hotbed for mining and acquisition activity with vast potential for future resource development.

The Latham Project contains the Gnat Pass copper-gold porphyry deposit where 102 drill holes from the 1960’s defined a non-compliant (prior to NI 43-101 and CIM standards for mineral resource estimation) indicated resource of 33 Mt @ 0.39% Cu (~284 million pounds of copper)(*) open to expansion. Select 2022 rock grab samples at Latham yielded up to 14.15 g/t Au (gold), 4.31% Cu (copper), and 63.1 g/t Ag (silver) from outcrop.

At their Kolos Project, located just north of Merritt, British Columbia, exciting new results are emerging from a maiden exploration program conducted in 2023.  Torr analyzed a massive area (48 square kilometers) with a first-ever regional sampling program, totaling over 3,300 soil samples. This analysis identified five large zones (each over a kilometer long) with high levels of copper (over 200 parts per million, some as high as 1,175 ppm). These zones are clustered together, suggesting potential for a substantial copper porphyry deposit. The 2023 exploration program has now defined a previously unknown trend to Cu-Au ± Mo mineralization stretching over 7 kilometers.

Thirdly, Torr’s Filion Gold Project covers 261 km2 in northern Ontario with multiple untested road-accessible gold exploration targets located just four kilometers north of the Trans-Canada Highway. Unparalleled access to infrastructure is also provided via railroad and a nearby power grid. Filion encompasses a largely unexplored Archean greenstone belt where the first-ever regional humus soil sampling program was conducted by Torr in 2023, with assays returning up to 1.32 g/t Au defining 6 footprints of highly anomalous (>20 ppb) gold. None of these anomalies have ever been drilled, with the largest measuring 1200m x 250m along-trend of historical rock grab and channel sampling that reported assays up to 91.4 g/t Au over 0.3 meters.

A Double Squeeze: Declining Gold and Copper Supply

While gold has held its allure for millennia, its future supply faces challenges. Existing mines are nearing depletion, while discovery rates for new deposits have dropped precipitously over the past 10 years in conjunction with increasing permitting timelines. This isn’t just a gold story – copper, crucial for clean energy, also faces stagnant production and a thinning pipeline of new deposits.

The answer lies in exploration of new highly prospective but underexplored ground. Companies like Torr Metals are utilizing significant technical expertise to focus on discovering potential new quality deposits in world-class districts that have significant local infrastructure, allowing for cost-effective year-round operations from discovery through to commercial production. This together with 100% ownership of 1,100 square kilometers of projects, each of which holds significant promise for copper-gold potential, also makes Torr a highly attractive potential partner for major miners who are looking for early-stage opportunities to grow their project pipeline. With a strong portfolio and the 2024 exploration season ramping up, Torr Metals is well-positioned to play a key role in securing these vital resources for the future.
