expert analysis & newsletter briefs

Arianne Phosphate Inc.

"Arianne Phosphate Inc. has an asset in Quebec with a full feasibility study. It is an igneous deposit, and it is expected to produce a 30% phosphate concentrate at 3 Mmt per year for more than 25 years. . .the company's deposit is an igneous deposit, which means it is lower in grade compared to a sedimentary deposit. But, importantly, an igneous deposit benefits from a much higher concentrate rate than a sedimentary deposit. While igneous deposits only have grades of 58%, they can easily be concentrated up to 39%, which is much higher than what sedimentary deposits can be concentrated up to, generally 29.5%. While the igneous ore grade is lower, the ultimate product is the concentrate. The greater the grade of concentrate, the higher the price." (8/26/14) - The Energy Report Interview with Ethan Park

Focus Ventures Ltd.

"Another project out there in the early stages of development is a Latin American operation run by Focus Ventures Ltd. Focus Ventures is working in the Bayovar region in Peru. The company's asset is in the same region as a phosphate mine that is operated by Vale, Mosaic and Mitsui & Co, which has an ore grade of 2830% purity. Focus is also operating in the same area as Americas Petrogas Inc.'s GrowMax operation. . .the company acquired its asset in this area about a year ago, and has made significant developments in that short period of time. Focus' drill results have confirmed the existence of phosphate, and the company should be able to establish a resource estimate in the near future. Its share price has done well, especially compared to its peers, not only in the agriculture input sector, but also among junior resources companies."

Royal Dutch Shell Plc

"We believe Royal Dutch Shell Plc's new CEO is the right man for the job and came at the right time with the right strategy to improve profitability and return, grow operating cash flow and boost valuation; he accelerated the pace of asset sales, especially in North America, which were deemed non-core. The company continues to shrink its refining and marketing portfolio while increasing capital allocation on high-growth and high-return projects." (8/25/14) - Fadel Gheit, Oppenheimer & Co.
