The second expert speaker will be Jon Hykawy, Head of Global Research, Clean Technologies and Materials Analyst at Byron Capital Markets. He’s well versed in introducing essential commodities to investors. “When we started looking at lithium three and a half years ago, most people didn’t even know what it was. We had to do almost 200 one-on-one meetings with clients to tell them what lithium was, what the market dynamics were and what sort of a space we were in. I’d see much the same thing to educate the market on fluorspar. But that’s not work we’re shy about doing.”
He adds, “There are enough companies out there to help, between Canada’s potential producers, so it should be an area of interest to investors.”
I’ll be speaking to people who are new to the industry and give them the basics, the most important things they need to know.—Industrial Minerals Data Manager Simon Moores
One of those companies is Prima Fluorspar Corp. President/CEO Robert Bick will discuss the Liard Fluorspar Property along the Alaska Highway in northern British Columbia. The 22,500-hectare project has an historic, non-43-101 resource estimate of 3.2 million tonnes averaging 32% fluorspar. The company believes the deposit remains open at depth and along strike for several kilometres, with open pit potential.
Prima Fluorspar is a holding of Zimtu Capital Corp TSXV:ZC. Last month Prima announced an agreement in which Camisha Resources Corp TSXV:CRN would acquire 100% of Prima. Subject to shareholder approval on November 26, and to regulatory approval and financing, the combined company will begin trading as Prima Fluorspar Corp. Its next goal will be a completed PEA by Q4 2013.
Another presenter will be Canada Fluorspar Inc TSXV:CFI President/CEO Lindsay Gorrill, whose company holds a 50/50 joint venture with industrial chemicals giant Arkema Inc on the St. Lawrence Fluorspar Project in Newfoundland. With two past-producing underground mines on site, the project plans include mill expansion, a new tailings facility and a deep-water port.
An updated pre-feasibility report is scheduled for Q4 2012 or Q1 2013. Canada Fluorspar is also drilling additional veins nearby.
Following the presentations, workshop attendees can meet with keynote speakers and company representatives. This is an early opportunity to learn from experts and scrutinize companies in an area of burgeoning interest.
