The Morabisi Lithium & Tantalum Project is located within the mineral-rich greenstone belt of Central Guyana approximately 150km SW of Georgetown. Guyana is the only English speaking country in South America and is renowned as a mining-friendly jurisdiction whose commitment to the industry is evidenced by the recent commissioning of three substantial gold mines (Guyana Goldfields’ Aurora Gold Mine, Troy Resources’ Kaburi Gold Mine and Goldsource’s Eagle Mountain Gold Mine). The Project area covers over 950,000 acres and is conveniently serviced by existing road and future planned power facilities, in addition to a number of local service towns within the Project area. Greenpower Energy Limited has executed a binding Heads of Agreement with Guyana Strategic Metals Inc. (GSM), to acquire up to a 74% interest in the Morabisi Project. GSM is a private Canadian company established by a group of mining professionals with significant Guyanese experience and in-country expertise. Over the past two and a half years, GSM has undertaken a substantial amount of work in terms of identifying areas within Guyana which are prospective for lithium and tantalum (including compiling, interpreting and undertaking desktop work in relation to historical information). Work on the Project has seen extensive sampling confirm high levels of Tantalum in addition to geochemistry results confirming accessary minerals consistent with LCT type Pegmatites with strong Rb, Cs, Be and Ta anomalies. Encouragingly, lithium bearing pegmatites have been identified in outcrop within quartz-microcline-tourmaline zone and on-trend with mapped LCT type Pegmatite veins/ring dykes identified on margin of batholith with over 40 km of combined strike length. The Phase II work has commenced at the Morabisi Lithium/Tantalum Project in Guyana in August 2017. Phase II exploration of the Morabisi Li-Ta-REE Project is designed to consolidate and expand exploration results from the Phase I exploration programme. In summary, exploration in the Phase I programme discovered Lithium occurrences of up to 1.04% Li2O associated with pegmatites at Turesi Ridge and very encouraging geochemistry results in two locations within 20km Ridge (East Camp and Banakaru). Lithium occurrences in rock chips and associated stream sediment sampling results warrant further exploration. The Phase II Morabisi Project exploration programme is designed to be carried out over a four-month period which includes the forthcoming dry season, from August 2017 to November 2017. Phase I was focused on mapping and sampling historically reported spodumene occurrences in the southern margin of the Morabisi Batholith. The first Phase will also revisit historical mining camps in the Robello and Rumong-Rumong rivers, where Coltan (Niobium and Tantalum) production has been undertaken in the past from alluvial deposits. These historical camps coincide with the location of several zoned pegmatite veins and dykes described by the British Guiana Geological Survey (BGGS). Greenstones adjacent to fertile granites are also key target areas for spodumene-bearing LCT pegmatites, and will be investigated as part of the phase 1 program. South of the granite contact is approximately 20 km of NW-SE orientated ridgeline hosted in greenstones (metavolcanics and metasediments), where additional LCT pegmatites are expected to occur. This area has seen minimal sampling, however minerals consistent with LCT pegmatites. Music: The Story Unfolds - Jingle Punks https://youtu.be/_8iypSHvdx0

Natural Sound Bolivian miners and their families have launched a protest against government plans to privatise a lucrative tin mine. 25-hundred miners have occupied the Posokoni hill mine since Friday. Hundreds more have marched through the streets of Oruro, 260 kilometers (152 miles) from the capital, La Paz. Miners and their families chanted anti-government slogans through the streets of Oruro, Bolivia, on Saturday, demanding jobs at the lucrative Posokoni mine. The mine lies in the mineral rich Huanuni region which the government is planning to sell into foreign ownership. Wives and supporters donned helmets and took to the streets of the nearby town of Oruro in support of colleagues who have occupied the mine since Friday. Many criticised the government under President Gonzalo Sanchez de Lozada. An estimated 25-hundred miners staging the sit-in at Posokoni were unblocking shafts in order to gain access to the mineral deposits. Posokoni tin is rated among the best in the world and is therefore likely to attract much interest from foreign buyers. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "The present government is intending to give away our riches to different foreign companies, and we don't want that. What we want is that they give these riches to us so that we can work them." SUPERCAPTION: Eduardo Mollinedo, member of miners' cooperative Miners in Bolivia work in cooperatives which are allocated specific mining rights by the state. Many of these mines have been exhausted and can no longer sustain the livelihoods of those people who work them. Without profitable land to mine, many families would be left with nothing. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "There are about 2,500 of us occupying, so that they allocate areas to us here in this place, Posokoni hill, where we get the tin for our livelihood." SUPER CAPTION: Eduardo Mollinedo, member of miners' cooperative The demonstration comes at a fragile time for President Lozada. Bolivia enters a general election on Sunday and Lozada is seeking a further term as president. Many Bolivians do not support his privatisation plans and there is public sympathy for the miners. Some of those living close to Posokoni have offered miners, who've come to protest from other regions, a roof over their heads while the demonstration continues.

Burundi has resources of copper, cobalt, nickel, feldspar, phosphate rock, quartzite, and rare reserves of uranium, and vanadium. The country is also a producer of limestone, peat, sand and gravel for domestic consumption and as building materials. As of 2005, manufacturing accounted for 8% of the country's gross domestic product.National gold production increased to 3,905 kg in 2005 from 3,229 kg in 2004 increasing dramatically from just 415 kg in 2001 because of higher gold prices. Gold reportedly accounted for more than 90% of the value of Burundi’s total mineral production in 2005. Machanga Ltd. of Uganda and more recently the Burundi Mining Corporation were responsible for mining much of the country's primary gold reserves which are concentrated in Muyinga Province in the north-east of the country.Columbium (niobium) and tantalum were mined by Asyst Mines, Comptoirs Miniers de Burundi S.A., Hamza, and Habonimana but the production of columbite-tantalite ore decreased considerably to 23,356 kg in 2004 from 72,441 kg in 2002 because low world market prices saw a slump in the demand for tantalum oxide in 2004. In 2005, production increased to 42,592 kg and has continued to rise again and columbite-tantalite production accounted for 5% of the value of Burundi’s mineral production as of 2005. An Australian company AuArgosy Minerals Incorporated was proposing to develop mines in the country but has had its Mining Convention and licences suspended by the government due to failure to meet commitments. Small quantities of tungsten and tin but only account for 3% of Burundi's total mineral production according to the Burundi Ministry of Energy and Mines The Office National de la Tourbe a branch of the government is responsible for peat production which is extracted notably in the Akanyara Valley near Buyongwe and in 2005 unmined resources of peat were stated by the Burundian government to total around 36 million metric tons. However Burundi has no resources of coal, natural gas, or petroleum meaning that electricity production in the country was very problematic. Hydroelectric power stations now account for most of the country’s electricity production as they do not have the natural reserves to produce it.

October 7, 2015 - Tracy Weslosky, Publisher of InvestorIntel interviews Anthony Julien, President and CEO of Cancana Resources Corp. (TSXV: CNY) a company focused on exploring and developing the BMC manganese project in Brazil, on their joint venture (JV) partner Ferrometals. Starting with their relationship with JV partner Ferrometals, a special purpose investment vehicle for the Sentient Group, Anthony describes a new investment model that private equity is following. Describing Cancana’s unique style of high grade manganese called hydrothermal that may be used for both steel and fertilizer, they discuss both the exploration and operational timeline moving forward for Cancana. Tracy Weslosky: Cancana Resources is extremely fascinating to me because you're actually from the Sentient Group and now you're the CEO of Cancana. Is that correct? Anthony Julien: That's correct. Tracy Weslosky: Can you explain to our audience the joint venture deal with Cancana and Sentient Group and how that's set up? Anthony Julien: So it's sort of the new investment model that private equity is following. Cancana brought the deal to the Sentient Group and it was structured really nicely. Essentially because there wasn't enough funds we had to put in the majority of the funds, which resulted in me becoming the CEO of Cancana. Under that operational model then Cancana is the operator and controls the investment and the major shareholder is private equity. Tracy Weslosky: Christopher Ecclestone, our global analyst from London who loves this story. He says you have some of the best manganese in the world and specifically in Brazil. Can you tell us a little bit about your manganese? Anthony Julien: Sure. In Brazil all of the manganese deposits in the working mines are what's called sedimentary manganese, which is a pretty typical style and it is the majority of manganese mines around the world. We've got a unique style of manganese called hydrothermal. The key difference between the two is that hydrothermal will be the same (inaudible) or grade at depth as it is at surface where sedimentary runs out of that grade. Potentially if the manganese process grows you can have deeper mines then you could if you had sedimentary because sedimentary will run out at some point. Tracy Weslosky: Of course, the actual property that you have, that you're focused on, you picked up two former producing properties. Is that correct? Anthony Julien: That's correct. Two that were in production and Cancana also had tenements that were adjacent. That's what attracted us about the deal because it was a continuous tenement package. What really surprised us when we were doing our due diligence, manganese is used in steel. We had this mindset that, oh, we'll do this for steel, but one of our customers was selling the majority of their products to the fertilizer business in Brazil. Tracy Weslosky: Well, of course, to be a fertilizer you have to have a higher grade. Anthony Julien: Yes. Yes. Usually people have mines running at about 38% to 44%. This mine was running at 50% plus and the fertilizer guys need a minimum of 48%, but it's not just about the grade. They also need none of the nasty’s in there, no lead, no cadmium, you know, all of those things, phosphorous. The hydrothermal style has very low elements in it, which makes is suitable for food products. Tracy Weslosky: Of course, you're taking advantage right now of the market that loves producers. I understand that you'll actually be able to be doing some…click here to access the complete Disclaimer: Cancana Resources Corp. is an advertorial member of InvestorIntel.

THE ASSET – THE NGUALLA RARE EARTH DEPOSIT NGUALLA RARE EARTH PROJECT - UNDERSTOOD -DE-RISKED- COMPETITIVE - MANAGEABLE - READY TO BE DELIVERED! Ngualla is one of the world’s largest and highest grade undeveloped neodymium (Nd) & praseodymium (Pr) rare earth projects. The Ngualla Rare Earth Project is centred on the Ngualla Carbonatite in southern Tanzania, 147 kilometres from the city of Mbeya on the edge of the East African Rift Valley. The name ‘Ngualla’ comes from the Swahili word for ‘bald head’, which reflects the appearance of the hill – mostly bare land on which there is no habitation, agriculture, grazing or reserves. The weathered Bastnaesite Zone that is the target for development occurs as a thick blanket of high grade rare earth mineralisation from surface on Ngualla Hill. Rare earths are contained within the mineral bastnaesite within a weathered host rock that contains very low levels of phosphate, carbonate, uranium and thorium compared to other rare earth deposits. This makes it easy-to-mine by low strip ratio open pit techniques and subsequently upgraded to a high grade processed concentrate through a multi stage processing plant on site. The Total All Resources Mineral Resource estimate for the Ngualla Project above a 1% REO cut-off is 214.4 million tonnes at 2.15% REO, for 4,620,000 tonnes of contained REO. Included in this Mineral Resource is the Weathered Bastnaesite Zone Mineral Resource, the measured and indicated portions of which form the basis of the Ore Reserve estimate. At a 1% REO lower grade cut-off the Mineral Resource estimate for the Weathered Bastnaesite Zone is 21.3 million tonnes at 4.75% REO, for 1,010,000 tonnes of contained REO. Details of the Mineral Resource estimate are contained within the ASX Announcement “Higher grade Resource for Ngualla nearly 1 million tonnes REO” as of 22 February 2016. The Ore Reserve estimate for the Ngualla Project is 18.5 million tonnes at 4.80% REO for 887,000 tonnes of contained REO. ASX Announcement “Ngualla Rare Earth Project – Updated Ore Reserve” as of 12 April 2017 provides further details and assumptions. The Ore Reserve represents just 22% of the Total All Resources Mineral Resource but is sufficient to support a mine life of 26 years. The Company plans to export approximately 32,700 tonnes per annum of rare earth concentrate grading 45% REO from Tanzania to the UK refinery. Ngualla is also host to widespread, high grade niobium-tantalum, phosphate, fluorspar and barite mineralisation. These additional commodities are at an early stage of evaluation and represent potential upside opportunities for additional products from the project. Tanzania is politically stable and has a well-established mining culture, being the fourth largest gold producer in Africa. Existing transport infrastructure together with a low tonnage, high value product will enable cost effective transport from Ngualla to the deep water port in Dar es Salaam.

http://ThoriumRemix.com/ Thorium is an abundant material which can be transformed into massive quantities of energy. To do so efficiently requires a very different nuclear reactor than the kind we use today- Not one that uses solid fuel rods, but a reactor in which the fuel is kept in a liquid state. Not one that uses pressurized water as a coolant, but a reactor that uses chemically stable molten salts. Such a reactor is called a "Molten Salt Reactor". Many different configurations are possible. Some of these configurations can harness Thorium very efficiently. This video explores the attributes of Molten Salt Reactors. Why are they compelling? And why do many people (including myself) see them as the only economical way of fully harnessing ALL our nuclear fuels... including Thorium. This video has been under development since 2012.

http://www.thewatchbox.com/all-brands The 46mm stainless steel Maurice Lacroix Masterpece Lune Retrograde limited edition of 250 cuts the profile of concept car for the wrist. Its combination of skeletonized metal and elaborate engineering appeal to connoisseurs of the avant garde; the in-house Caliber 152 "engine" is exposed for inspection on both sides of the watch. And like the best concept cars, it's loaded with toys. While thoroughly grounded in the modern era of luxury style, Maurice Lacroix honors "watch valley" heritage via outstanding finish, in-house movement, and classical proportions honor the finest Swiss traditions. Based in the Swiss canton of Jura, Maurice Lacroix compounded its reputation for cutting-edge style by making the jump to full manufacture status during the early years of the twentieth century. Each element of the vast case and sprawling dial highlight's Maurice Lacroix's attention to detail. While round in the classical dress watch image, the case is anything but conventional. The case flanks are double-flanged for sharp visual definition. A narrow bezel provides a slim frame for the vast skeleton dial; as impressive as this dial is in isolation, the watch face appears even larger in contrast to the ethereal profile of the bezel. And the dial itself is a masterstroke. Simultaneously intricate and legible, the centerpiece of this Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece Lune Retrograde is a showstopper. A retrograde date sweeps its graceful arc from nine to eleven o'clock. The crescent of the power reserve gauge provides mirror-like balance from one to three o'clock. At six o'clock, Maurice Lacroix incorporates a double display of the present day and moonphase. All of the mechanical elements sit blazon against the dramatic backdrop of the ML 152 movement and its black gold coated plates. Within that blanked of "or noir," the manual-wind ML 152 (adjusted in five positions) provides precise timing on the backs of 37 jewels and a robust swan's neck fine adjustment regulator. The elegant swan's neck, which resists shock-induced timing error, sits in dramatic juxtaposition to the sleek blackened bridges. It's another example of Maurice Lacroix's penchant for setting elements of tradition and avant garde in intimate proximity.

Lithium Australia NL (ASX:LIT) managing director Adrian Griffin explains the company's innovative and integrated approach to producing the in-demand battery metal, which includes proprietary technologies for tailings processing and battery recycling. "We believe we can process waste material from other people's operations, and those operations aren't just lithium operations; there's a lot of lithium minerals contained in deposits such as tin, tantalum, and clay minerals... we've taken positions in most of the major lithium provinces around the world so that if we do a deal to recover lithium from other people's waste materials, and there's a supply chain problem with respect to that, we can then go and mine our own deposits," says Griffin.

An ore is a type of rock that contains sufficient minerals with important elements including metals that can be economically extracted from the rock. The ores are extracted through mining; these are then refined (often via smelting) to extract the valuable element(s). The grade or concentration of an ore mineral, or metal, as well as its form of occurrence, will directly affect the costs associated with mining the ore. The cost of extraction must thus be weighed against the metal value contained in the rock to determine what ore can be processed and what ore is of too low a grade to be worth mining. Metal ores are generally oxides, sulfides, silicates, or "native" metals (such as native copper) that are not commonly concentrated in the Earth's crust, or "noble" metals (not usually forming compounds) such as gold. The ores must be processed to extract the metals of interest from the waste rock and from the ore minerals. Ore bodies are formed by a variety of geological processes. The process of ore formation is called ore genesis. This video is targeted to blind users. Attribution: Article text available under CC-BY-SA Creative Commons image source in video

Egypt has substantial mineral resources, including 48 million tons of tantalite (fourth largest in the world), 50 million tons of coal, and an estimated 6.7 million ounces of gold in the Eastern Desert. The total real value of minerals mined was about £E102 million (US$18.7 million) in 1986, up from £E60 million (US$11 million) in 1981. The chief minerals in terms of volume output were iron ore, phosphates, and salt. The quantities produced in 1986 were estimated at 2,048, 1,310, and 1,233 tons, respectively, compared with 2,139, 691, and 883 tons in 1981. In addition, minor amounts of asbestos (313 tons) and quartz (19 tons) were mined in 1986. Preliminary exploration in Sinai indicated the presence of zinc, tin, lead, and copper deposits. Private sector exploration and exploitation activities so far have been limited. Only recently, AngloGold Ashanti with its joint Venture Partner Thani Dubai and a Canadian listed exploration company, Alexander Nubia International have been undertaking exploration in Egypt's Eastern Desert with some success. Centamin Ltd., a mineral exploration company founded in Australia, started a massive mining project in Sukari Hill.

Thus, the main focus of Ghana's mining and minerals development industry remains focused on gold. Ghana is Africa's largest gold producer, producing 80.5 t in 2008. Ghana is also a major producer of bauxite, manganese and diamonds. Ghana has 23 large-scale mining companies producing gold, diamonds, bauxite and manganese, and, there are also over 300 registered small scale mining groups and 90 mine support service companies.Other mineral commodities produced in the country are natural gas, petroleum, salt, and silver.

This video uses Google TTS en-US-Standard-D voice. SUMMARY ======= The Democratic Republic of the Congo ( pronunciation French: République démocratique du Congo [kɔ̃ɡo]), also known as DR Congo, the DRC, Congo-Kinshasa, East Congo, or simply the Congo, is the southernmost country located in Central Africa. It is sometimes referred to by its former name of Zaire, which was its official name between 1971 and 1997. The DRC borders the Central African Republic to the north; South Sudan to the northeast; Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi and Tanzania to the east; Zambia to the south; Angola to the southwest; and the Republic of the Congo and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. It is the second-largest country in Africa after Algeria (the largest in Sub-Saharan Africa) by area and the 11th-largest in the world. With a population of over 78 million, the Democratic Republic of the Congo is the most populated officially Francophone country, the fourth-most-populated country in Africa, and the 16th-most-populated country in the world. Centred on the Congo Basin, the territory of the DRC was first inhabited by Central African foragers around 90,000 years ago and was reached by the Bantu expansion about 3,000 years ago. In the west, the Kingdom of Kongo ruled around the mouth of the Congo River from the 14th to 19th centuries. In the centre and east, the kingdoms of Luba and Lunda ruled from the 16th and 17th centuries to the 19th century. In the 1870s, just before the onset of the Scramble for Africa, European exploration of the Congo Basin was carried out, first led by Henry Morton Stanley under the sponsorship of King Leopold II of Belgium. Leopold formally acquired rights to the Congo territory at the Berlin Conference in 1885 and made the land his private property, naming it the Congo Free State. During the Free State, the colonial military unit, the Force Publique, forced the local population to produce rubber, and from 1885 to 1908, millions of Congolese died as a consequence of disease and exploitation. In 1908, Belgium, despite initial reluctance, formally annexed the Free State, which became the Belgian Congo. The Belgian Congo achieved independence on 30 June 1960 under the name Republic of the Congo. Congolese nationalist Patrice Lumumba was elected the first Prime Minister, while Joseph Kasa-Vubu became the first President. Conflict arose over the administration of the territory, which became known as the Congo Crisis. The provinces of Katanga, under Moïse Tshombe, and South Kasai attempted to secede. After Lumumba turned to the Soviet Union for assistance in the crisis, the U.S. and Belgium became wary and oversaw his removal from office by Kasa-Vubu on 5 September and ultimate execution by Belgian-led Katangese troops on 17 January 1961. On 25 November 1965, Army Chief of Staff Joseph-Désiré Mobutu, who later renamed himself Mobutu Sese Seko, officially came into power through a coup d'état. In 1971, he renamed the country Zaire. The country was run as a dictatorial one-party state, with his Popular Movement of the Revolution as the sole legal party. Mobutu's government received considerable support from the United States, due to its anti-communist stance during the Cold War. By the early 1990s, Mobutu's government began to weaken. Destabilisation in the east resulting from the 1994 Rwandan genocide and disenfranchisement among the eastern Banyamulenge (Congolese Tutsi) population led to a 1996 invasion led by Tutsi FPR-ruled Rwanda, which began the First Congo War.On 17 May 1997, Laurent-Désiré Kabila, a leader of Tutsi forces from the province of South Kivu, became President after Mobutu fled to Morocco, reverting the country's name to the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Tensions between President Kabila and the Rwandan and Tutsi presence in the country led to the Second Congo War from 1998 to 2003. Ultimately, nine African countries and around twenty armed groups became involved in the war, which resulted in the deaths of 5.4 million people. The two wars de ...
