Ultra Resources Metallurgical Testwork Shows 94.34% Gold Recovery for La Rioja Gold Project in Argentina

Vancouver, BC – Ultra Lithium Inc. (TSX-V:ULT, OTCQB: ULTXF and Frankfurt: QFB) is pleased to announce that it has received final results of metallurgical testwork for the bulk sample from its 100% owned Chepes Gold Project in La Rioja Province, Argentina. The testwork was contracted to Yantai Xinhai Mining Research & Design Co., Ltd., Shandong, China (“Xinhai”) and the results show an overall recovery of 94.34% gold using a combination of gravity separation, copper masking and leaching using CNLITE reagent. The bulk sample was comprised of two samples with a total weight of 849 kilogram collected from the Callanas and Al Espinillo mining licenses (See Company’s news release dated July 9, 2020).

Metallurgical Testwork Highlights

  • The goal of testwork was to focus on gold recovery from the mineralized rock which is in an oxidized state. Initial head sample assay indicates average 13.41 grams per ton (g/t) gold (Au), 32.15 g/t silver (Ag), 0.47 percent (%) copper (Cu), 2.78% lead (Pb), and 0.96% Zinc (Zn).
  • The test results indicate that when the mineralized rock is ground to -200 mesh, gravity concentrates can be obtained, with a yield of 33%, with gold grade of 1,530 g/t. Overall gold recovery is 38.19% using gravity. The gravity tailings have a gold grade of 8.20 g/t and were taken as feeding material in the following tests.
  • When gravity tailings are treated through pre-leaching by adding a masking agent, then enter into the leaching process with lime as a protective alkali and CNLITE as the leaching agent, the gold leaching rate reaches 90.85% under leaching time of 24 hours, and 91.95% under leaching time of 48 hours. Gravity concentration combined with leaching can realize an overall recovery rate of 94.34% (38.19%+61.81%*90.85%) and 94.41% (38.19%+61.81%*91.95%) under a leaching time of 24 and 48 hours, respectively.
  • According to Xinhai, CNLITE is a new environmentally friendly gold leaching reagent produced by the Xinhai Group.  CNLITE is being used in some countries as an alternative to traditional cyanide as gold extraction agent. Cyanide is a highly toxic reagent. CNLITE has the benefits of environmental protection, high leaching rate, fast recycling and high cost effectiveness. In addition, the use of CNLITE does not change the existing cyanidation process and gold extraction equipment.

Dr. Weiguo Lang, CEO of Ultra Resources, stated, “We are very pleased with the outcome of metallurgical testwork which is an efficient and cost-effective process due to the use of CNLITE instead of traditional cyanidation. Its nontoxic and environmentally friendly features will be helpful in permitting and community approval. The Company’s goal is to continue exploration on its projects to create new jobs for the community and install a gold extraction plant as soon as possible to start processing mine dump material available at the Callanas and Al Espinillo mines”.

Ultra Resources Begins Metallurgical Testwork for La Rioja Gold Project in Argentina

Vancouver, BC – Ultra Lithium Inc. (TSX-V:ULT, OTCQB: ULTXF and Frankfurt: QFB) is pleased to announce that it has shipped two bulk samples with a total weight of 849 kilograms from its Gold Project in La Rioja Province, Argentina to China for metallurgical testing. Bulk sample # 101 is from Callanas mining license and #102 is from Al Espinillo mining license. To make it a representative sample of mineralization style on the property, the sample was collected from multiple quartz veins (464 kilograms) and the historical dump material (385 kilograms) from each mine as summarized below:

Callanas Mine (Sample 101)
The sample was taken from two locations at the Callanas VI quartz vein area. The first location is an old exploration camp site where a 3.5-metre-thick quartz vein is exposed within a 40 metre deep historical workings. The vein has a strike of 130° dipping vertically. Mineralization is in the form of malachite, limonite, and other sulfides with silicification / sericite alteration. The dump material is located40 metres to the north of the pit around the old camp site. The second location is from and old incline where 1.5-metre-thick quartz vein is exposed, shows massive hematite alteration, high density, with a strike of 110° and vertical dip. The Dump sample was taken from the material piled at the edges of the incline.

Al Espinillo Mine (Sample 102)
The sample was taken from the edge of a 40 metre deep historical mine workings where an approximately four-metre-wide fractured quartz vein having a strike of 110° dipping vertically is exposed. Mineralization is in the form of malachite, chalcopyrite, and other sulfides. Sericite and copper oxide alteration is common. The dump material is located around the old mine workings.

About the Metallurgical Testwork
The Company has contracted Yantai Xinhai Mining Research & Design Co., Ltd., Shandong, China (“Xinhai”) to carry out the following metallurgical testwork.

  1. Head grade sample analysis for gold, silver, and other elements.
  2. Particle size analysis: The sample will be screened into several fractions to measure the contents of each fraction and distribution rate of various metals.
  3. Determination of true density and bulk density of the mineralized rock.
  4. Determination of mineral processing technical parameters and process flows of gold recovery from the samples.
  5. As the sample represents a polymetallic mineralized material, containing gold, silver, copper, lead, zinc, etc. The test will focus mainly on gold recovery.
  6. The preliminary test scheme for mineral processing of the bulk sample is the gravity concentration plus nonconventional environmentally friendly gravity tailings leaching tests.
  7. If other valuable elements such as copper have influence on gold recovery, the corresponding recovery process will be carried out to improve the recovery rate of gold.
  8. Conduct dehydration test on mineral processing products.
  9. Based on the test results and considering the requirements of capacity and other conditions of mineral processing designs, Xinhai will provide recommendations for equipment selection, water and electricity requirements and other economic parameters.

Dr. Weiguo Lang, CEO of Ultra Resources, stated that, “Although we are facing tough challenges due to the Global Pandemic effects of COVID-19, the Company has been very successful in keep things going on the projects side. The metallurgical testwork will be a leap forward in developing small scale production plans to process available historical dump material at our La Rioja Gold mines while exploring the underground gold resources based on the historical exploration work by JICA and ASGO.”

EU EV Sales to Pass 1M in 2020

Clean energy more than a fad; EU EV sales to skyrocket in 2020

From January to December 2020, EU EV sales will breach 1 million. Granted, this includes both hybrid and electric models. Nevertheless, the milestone is significant. After all, this projection anticipates sales to grow by more than four times in one year.

READ: German Power Grid Up for EV Challenge

Evidently, the continent’s governments have done a great job incentivizing clean transportation. If they wish to do business in Europe, automakers must quickly rollout EV fleets.

Ultimately, automakers musn’t surpass 95g of CO2 per km in any new vehicle.

Fine-ding sustainable solutions

eu ev salesThe fines imposed by the EU on carmakers who don’t satisfy these requirements are significant.

After all, €95 per gram – times the total number of cars sold in the EU – can’t be ignored. It seems there is no greater incentive than a monetary one.

For now, VW and Honda are expected to lead the European charge to market among electric automakers.

Competition in Europe

eu ev salesHowever, Tesla isn’t going away anytime soon. Moreover, brands like Dyson have also decided to enter the market.

Nevertheless, the increase among European EV manufacturers pales in comparison to China. Indeed, a bubble plagues the over 500 Chinese electric vehicle startups.

Regardless, it’s encouraging to see China and Europe take major steps toward phasing out combustible engines.

Their secret: progressive policy. American voters should take notice ahead of the 2020 election.

Central Banks Help Determine Gold’s Value

Value of commodities – including gold – largely determined by central banks

Recently, the value of gold hit a 6-year high. Evidently, 2 major factories made this a reality. Firstly, the China-US trade war. Secondly, the impending recession. However, few investors factor in the effect central banks have on the commodity’s continued surge.

Indeed, the world’s central banks shape global economic policy. Their actions have monumental importance and have far-reaching implications.

Their ability to navigate the next recession will determine their respective country’s financial well-being once the bears finish feeding.

Future moves determine today’s prices

central banksConsequently, the moves made by central banks greatly affect the value of precious metals, including gold.

The future moves made by these institutions dictate the current value of all assets and commodities.

As a result, the policies they implement to combat the global recession greatly affect day traders.

Boom or bust

central banksWhile gold currently sits near $1500 per ounce, monetary restructuring to cushion economies from the coming downturn could change that. Additionally, the policies they implement will either discourage or encourage investments in areas like talent and innovation. Indeed, the former is infinitely more likely.

After all, the threat of a recession often encourages governments and companies to make decisions that accelerate the path to recession.

Meanwhile, gold’s value often runs against economic growth in times of uncertainty. The safe-haven asset is likely to attract more investor attention as the market dips.

Consequently, the moves made by central banks could favour gold – and those who hold it.

Household Battery Market Hurt by EV Adoption

High electric vehicle sales cause household battery market to suffer

Electric cars rely on lithium-ion batteries to power their zero-emission engines. Consequently, these batteries charge at increasingly impressive rates. Otherwise, the electric revolution would be a losing battle. As a result, the competing household battery market slowly declines.

This has already started to happen in the home electronics market. Non-rechargeable batteries have less than a 3% market share. Consider that all electronics in your home are powered by rechargeable batteries – most of them lithium-ion.

End of residential storage

Meanwhile, cars aren’t driven 95% of the time. As a result, they have the potential to contribute to large grid storage projects.

Evidently, your EV’s battery could help power your community. Through bi-directional charging, residential stationary energy storage will soon be phased out.

Consequently, an infinitely more sustainable energy source will soon power your home – your eco-friendly car.

EVs an energy asset

Lithium-ion batteries are an essential weapon in the battle against climate change.

Additionally, both automakers and governments now have several financial incentives to abandon combustible engines in favour of those powered by Li-Ion batteries.

Soon, your ride to work will power your home.

Out with the old, in the with the new as auto buyers turn to used electric cars

More than anything, clean transportation is about reducing waste. Indeed, recycling and sustainability are like two peas in a pod. Evidently, the message is slowly hitting the public, as sales of used electric cars steadily increase.

Specifically, sales in Australia have begun to skyrocket. Since September 2018, demand for hybrid and electric cars has jumped significantly.

As a result, demand among EV owners looking to sell used models has also jumped.

Secondhand sustainability

According to a poll of over 50,000 Australians, year-over-year interest in purchasing used electric cars has risen from 53k to 92k.

Meanwhile, interest in buying a new EV has slightly dropped.

Consequently, the substantial cost of driving a new plug-in vehicle off the lot influences these findings.

Long way to go in ‘land down under’

used electric carsMoreover, there are many inconveniences associated with driving electric.

For starters, charging station access and battery range issues must be solved. Granted, automakers and governments are spending billions to improve the technology underlying sustainable driving.

Nevertheless, less than 200 electric models are available for purchase in Australia. The country lags behind Europe, China, and the US in adoption metrics.

However, these findings prove the winds of change could be hitting Aussie drivers. While electric car penetration in rural areas has been historically poor, efforts made by both automakers and governments to make them more practical could soon push public sentiment in a more sustainable direction.

Canada Invests $2M in Clean Mining

National focus on sustainable mining practices as Canada invests $2M in initiative

Clean energy technology impacts more than just transportation. Indeed, electric vehicles have an invaluable role to play in sustainability projects. However, a recent government initiative sheds light on eco-friendly mining practices, as Canada invests $2M in energy-efficient mining tech.

This investment makes sense. After all, most of the resources powering clean energy technologies are sourced in mines.

Furthermore, lithium is the chemical element lithium-ion batteries rely on to store power. For the commodity to make a truly sustainable impact, the tools we use to collect it must be carbon-neutral – or better.

Canada investsCrushing fossil fuels

Consequently, the $2m investment should drastically reduce energy consumption at mine sites.

Specifically, it targets the waste produced by conventional crushers and grinders.

Ultimately, the investment goes toward developing an energy-efficient alternative to these gas-guzzling behemoths.

International effects

Canada investsOverall, the project aims to reduce any site’s energy consumption by 40%.

Additionally, this new development should reduce crushing and grinding costs on all mining sites by up to 30%.

As automakers and governments target new energy sources, this development is significant. Evidently, a successful patent will be used by countries with similar mining operations.

Expect more clean mining initiatives to emerge as global clean energy demands intensify. Moreover, the steps countries take today will future-proof them for the energy overhaul to come.

Consider this a move in the right direction for the Great White North.
