Marifil Mines Ltd. (TSX.V: MFM) (OTCQB: MFMLF) Focused on Gold Exploration Project amid Dwindling Global Supply

  • Core drilling program completed at San Roque property in Argentina
  • Up to 600 core samples are being shipped to a certified laboratory for assay, with management optimistic about “favorable results”
  • Company also pursues cobalt and lithium, two other minerals risking global shortage due to increased demand

Reputable mining experts have issued stern warnings in recent weeks that the global supply of gold is declining at an alarming rate, with yet no viable substitutes to replace the precious metal. The world has reached “peak gold,” with reserves being mined much faster than they are being replaced by new discoveries and with virtually no new major gold deposits being identified, according to gold and mining experts quoted by Sovereign Man (http://nnw.fm/Na9Q8). Aiming to help meet the growing demand for gold, Marifil Mines Ltd. (TSX.V: MFM) (OTCQB: MFMLF) recently completed a drilling program at a flagship Argentinean property where it searches for gold and zinc.

Based in Vancouver, Canada, the exploration company also pursues cobalt and lithium – two minerals that are also facing a growing global demand and potential shortage as a result of their use in lithium-ion batteries. Demand for lithium-ion batteries is primarily being driven by their use in electric vehicles, a fast-growing industry, as several European countries and China have passed legislation aiming to replace standard gas and diesel-powered vehicles with EVs. It is expected that at least 14 percent of all cars worldwide will be battery-powered by 2025 (http://nnw.fm/lQdJ9).

Engaged in the exploration, evaluation and acquisition of mineral-rich properties in Argentina, and keeping its primary focus on gold, lithium and cobalt, Marifil Mines is uniquely positioned for growth and success in its market segment. The company is optimistic about its prospects, in particular about the results of its recently completed drilling program at San Roque, in southwestern Argentina’s Rio Negro province, where it resumed its search for gold after a six-year hiatus.

The drilling program consisted of four drill holes for a total of 846.5 meters (2,836 feet), bringing overall drilling on the property to 15,683 meters (51,453 feet) across 112 holes, the company said in a press release (http://nnw.fm/P4EfW). All drilled cores are being geologically and geotechnically logged and analyzed, with up to 600 core samples set to be further assayed by a specialized laboratory in Mendoza, Argentina. The laboratory has so far received 185 samples.

Marifil Mines has implemented a systematic quality assurance control on the drill cores and has hired an independent consulting geochemistry expert to analyze the credibility of assay returns. A report on the drilling program results for all four holes will be made public as soon as all assays are completed and verified.

The company’s drilling program also aims to augment confirmation of the Zone 34 gold find and expand the reported size of the deposit by testing a kilometer-long geophysical anomaly that is believed to have been created by sulfides possibly bearing gold and zinc.

“This drilling campaign was nicely executed and done so within budget by our Argentinean crew. From the look of the drill cores, we are hopeful for some favorable results,” Marifil Mines Vice President Richard Walters, who is also a professional geologist certified by the American Association of Professional Geologists and a qualified person by Canadian National Instrument 43-101 standards, stated in a news release.

In addition to the San Roque property, Marifil Mines is taking steps to revive its lithium exploration program, in the so-called “Lithium Triangle” of the Argentine Puma, which was halted in 2009. The company owns three unexplored mine rights and is planning to purchase a fourth property from a competitor, who has recently announced the discovery of potentially economic lithium brines. Marifil is seeking to leverage its cobalt-bearing property, Las Aguilas, in a joint venture equity exchange for the lithium property. Las Aguilas’ patented mining claims spread over 359 hectares (887 acres) and are 100 percent owned by the company.

QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (OTC: QMCQF) (TSX.V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ) Taps Sleeping Mineral Giant for Lithium Bounty

  • International efforts to reduce global pollutants continue to fuel expectations for energy-efficient lithium products
  • QMC Quantum Minerals upgrading historical assays of its Manitoba properties’ lithium resources
  • Global lithium market forecasts predict a 9.33 percent CAGR through 2023

QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (TSX.V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ) (OTC: QMCQF) hopes to help awaken a sleeping mineral giant in southern Canada’s lakes region amid the international focus on reducing the pollutants in fossil fuel emissions. In recent months, the natural resource exploration and development company has been increasing its holdings and accelerating the analysis of lithium mineralization in the province’s bountiful Cat Lake-Winnipeg River Pegmatite Field as it searches for commercially marketable products.

Lithium and its modern-tech battery companion cobalt have been enjoying renewed interest as countries from China (http://nnw.fm/yY6Tv) to Britain (http://nnw.fm/dZs8C), as well as the United States (http://nnw.fm/UbZP1), push to reduce the petroleum-based pollution emitted by internal combustion engines. India’s Space Research Organization’s (ISRO) Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC) has attracted the interest of some 130 companies with its automotive and space industry-friendly development of an already-tested lithium-ion battery that is expected to add impetus to the zero emissions movement (http://nnw.fm/d1UDM). Not only passenger cars, but commercial vehicles are also beginning to get onboard with the emissions-reducing efforts, as exemplified by Chinese automobile manufacturer BYD’s expansion of its North American fleet from electric-powered buses and trucks to Class 6 step vans with 221 kWh batteries for consumer product deliveries (http://nnw.fm/Q61lf).

Because anticipated demand for the metals exceeds the currently available supply, commodity prices have seen big jumps in recent years, and automobile manufacturers have tried to shore up their production strategies by locking in long-term resource contracts for the highly efficient, high energy density batteries. Market analyst Mordor Intelligence predicts that the global lithium market will grow with a 9.33 percent CAGR until 2023 (http://nnw.fm/96nE5).

The historical exploration of lithium in Manitoba, including ongoing productivity from the world-class Tanco lithium-cesium-tantalum deposit about 12 miles from QMC’s flagship Irgon Lithium Mine property and regionally accessible Namew Lake District VMS properties to the north, is leading Manitoba to anticipate a possible revitalization of its mining industry and ancillary businesses (http://nnw.fm/D1y0G). The province’s mining and petroleum industries comprise the second-largest primary resource industry of its economy, according to the government (http://nnw.fm/8nV9l).

QMC’s preference for hard rock mining is focused on a 60-year-old production field where 22 adjoining mineral claims encompass 11,325 acres north of Winnipeg. The company has been involved in proving up historical assays of 1.2 million tons of lithium oxide-bearing pegmatite graded at 1.51 percent Li2O so that the reporting will meet modern NI 43-101 regulatory standards.

Recent 3D modeling of the site led the company to determine that exploration and development at the site has only occurred on a portion of the Irgon Dike, leading to expectations that there may be more untapped tonnage available. Because the dike is open along strike and depth, the company expects to increase the historical reported resource.

“Ultimately, we think our NI 43-101 will establish much more than the 1.2 million tons of 1.5 percent lithium oxide along the strike of the dike that the old survey estimated,” the company’s website states.

CryptoCurrencyWire Provides Recap of Blockchain World Conference

CryptoCurrencyWire (“CCW”), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company, today provides a recap of happenings at the Blockchain World Conference (“BWC”), which took place last week in Atlantic City, NJ.

As a key extension of InvestorBrandNetwork and NetworkWire, the CCW brand marked its first conference attendance at BWC as a gold sponsor and the official newswire of the event. The event served as the perfect venue to host the brand’s physical debut as the team received an unprecedented response from the crypto and blockchain communities during the conference.

“Our team’s extensive experience with information dissemination was highly sought after as attendees and fellow exhibitors saw the value of the expansive distribution network we’ve built up,” said Jonathan Keim, Communications Director for CryptoCurrencyWire. “Our global press release package that reaches 56 countries in 12 different languages was very popular for those who want to partner up with a newswire that can truly provide international reach for their news. With crypto and blockchain technologies being as global as the internet itself, this offering was a huge hit as a cost-effective option to reach the world.”

BWC proved to be an invaluable networking opportunity for the many blockchain experts, enthusiasts, innovators and entrepreneurs who flocked to the event. The energy and drive to bring blockchain and crypto technologies to the masses was extremely contagious among all who attended. CCW made many key contacts during the conference, and though it has only been a few days since the conclusion of the conference, CCW is already seeing quick advancement of its discussions with multiple conference participants.

Blockchain World Conference, which took place at Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City, was jam-packed with keynote addresses, panel discussions, presentations, round table discussions, networking events, parties and more. The highlighted keynote address of the conference was given by John McAfee, founder of McAfee Associates and renowned worldwide as “the bad boy of blockchain.” McAfee was originally scheduled to give an in-person address at the conference, but the plan had to be changed due to McAfee receiving death threats prior to the event that were considered credible. His address was ultimately delivered to conference participants via a live streaming session from an unspecified location, which included taking questions from the audience, and the conference concluded successfully.

Those who were unable to attend the Blockchain World Conference in Atlantic City will soon be able to access all video generated during the event by purchasing a streaming license. The streaming package will provide viewers with 12-month online access to video of the conference’s mainstage addresses, keynote speeches, panel discussions and round tables.

We’re looking forward to being at BWC South, which will be hosted at The Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood, FL, from December 3-5, 2018. Stay tuned for early registration details and discounts!
