expert analysis & newsletter briefs

Fission Uranium Corp.

"There is a grouping of Patterson Lake deposits now. Fission Uranium Corp. is one; the spinoff company of the exploration project is Fission 3.0 Corp. . .the company has made it clear that it doesn't intend to produce uranium, which means that someone has to take it out at some point. When it gets the proper offer, then it goes. . .Fission Uranium is content with continuing to explore its land package to determine how much uranium it can find on these structural features. It is currently drilling the east side of the property, which has not seen much drilling. Fission Uranium is also chasing mineralization to the southwest along the on-land portion of the mineralized feature, which is harder to find because it's covered by about 40m of glacial till. So it's still a drilling story at this point. . .the mineralization is so shallow at Triple R and so amenable to mining that the company doesn't have to prevent water from flowing into the workings by unconventional means. What is unknown is exactly how much depth potential exists on Fission Uranium's ground." (6/23/15) - The Energy Report Interview with Paul Renken

Nemaska Lithium Inc.

"Nemaska Lithium Inc. seems to be coming along quite nicely. The company's Whabouchi lithium project is hosted in a spodumene-bearing pegmatite in Québec that will ultimately produce lithium hydroxide. It's going to be a simple open-pit operation. Nemaska is financing a pilot plant that will produce representative hydroxide material that potential offtakers can see for themselves. . .[lithium hydroxide] trades at a $1,000/ton premium to lithium carbonate. If Nemaska can produce lithium hydroxide in a single step, which so far seems possible, it would certainly make the company, on a production basis, quite competitive with other producers." (6/23/15) - The Energy Report Interview with Paul Renken

DuSolo Fertilizers Inc.

"DuSolo Fertilizers Inc. has chosen to go the low capital expenditure route to quickly move into production. The company is in Brazil, which is geologically and commercially short of both potash and phosphate for fertilizer. DuSolo produces coarse phosphate for the local agricultural market. The company can essentially sell a bag of crushed raw rock or slightly enriched material directly to the farmers without having to blend it into higher-grade fertilizers at additional expense. That preserves its margins. By the same token, DuSolo doesn't have to build a costly plant to position itself in the higher-end enriched fertilizer component of phosphate and feedstock. I follow the company quite closely." (6/23/15) - The Energy Report Interview with Paul Renken

NexGen Energy Ltd.

"Another company that is on the same mineralized trend continuing from Patterson Lake off to the northeast is NexGen Energy Ltd. I follow NexGen because it is on the same geologic feature that hosts Fission Uranium's mineralization. It seems to be a continuation of the same geology. . .NexGen is at an earlier stage, but it has definitely proven that the same feature that is mineralized on Fission's ground is mineralized with high-grade uranium on its ground, too. It's also a drilling story. NexGen has something like five drill rigs testing its land package at Rook 1 this season. It has to get enough uranium intercepts to get up into the same resource league as Fission. It is certainly going all out to do it." (6/23/15) - The Energy Report Interview with Paul Renken

DuSolo Fertilizers Inc.

"DuSolo Fertilizers Inc. has chosen to go the low capital expenditure route to quickly move into production. The company is in Brazil, which is geologically and commercially short of both potash and phosphate for fertilizer. DuSolo produces coarse phosphate for the local agricultural market. The company can essentially sell a bag of crushed raw rock or slightly enriched material directly to the farmers without having to blend it into higher-grade fertilizers at additional expense.
