Brand Comms Podcast – Brand CEO Alan Green talks to Catenae Innovation #CTEA CEO Tony Sanders

Brand Comms CEO Alan Green talks to Tony Sanders, CEO of AIM listed Catenae Innovation (CTEA). Tony explains how Catenae have developed a range of blockchain applications for Onside, Onguard and Onsite, an application for multiple commercial processes. Tony talks through a recent contract win: a Firedoor inspection contract, which creates an annual annuity stream plus revenue per transaction. On the recent funding, Tony discusses the management team, which between them have invested over £300k from over the past 2 placings and now own over 7% between them. He explains how the funds will be used for sales and marketing, and how Catenae are one of the few companies around the world already earning money from the commercial application of blockchain in areas other than crypto currency.

Ian Pollard – Bronhill To Pay Maiden Dividend

Bronhill Group BONH saw revenue rise to £8m compared to £2.6m for the year to the end of March 2018. Adjusted EBITDA increased to  £0.9m from a loss of £0.4m and net assets jumped from £2m to £22.9m for the nine months to the 31st December. Arrangements are also under way for a maiden dividend to be paid for the six months  to the 30th June.

Spectra Systems SPSY has excellent prospects for maintaining strong earnings in 2019.and expects the annual dividend to be increased by 17% for payment in June, after a rise in profit before tax of 19%. For the year to 31st December, net income rose by 24%, adjusted earnings per share by 11% and EBITDA by 16%.

Be Heard Group plc BHRD Despite  a difficult start to 2018, which resulted in management changes becoming necessary, the year  finished strongly with group revenue rising by 51% and like for like revenue up by 15%. Adjusted EBITDA  increased by 90%. The operational loss for the year to 31st December came in at 9.7m but the company has now produced nine consecutive months of profitability up to February, with strong organic growth.

MediaZest plc MDZ has faced a difficult economic background since the interim results were announced on the 5th November. Accordingly the Board now expects the full year results for the year ended 31 March 2019 will be below current market expectations, although they will still be an improvement on the previous year. the Group’s trading results for the second half of the financial year (6 months to 31 March 2019) are expected to be lower than the first half of the year. A small loss after tax is now expected for the year end..New business , combined with recurring revenue contracts, will provide the Group with a base for further growth over the next 12 months.

Thought for the Day: Catenae Innovation #CTEA – Golden Building Blocks

Thought for the Day:

The market seems to have completely missed the significance of the recent placing at Catenae Innovation #CTEA . Between them, the board have spent over £110k buying shares (over £300k including the last placing), institutional investor Miton bought more stock to maintain their current holding AND after spending £75k of his own money in the placing, CEO Tony Sanders now owns 3.38% of the company. For any retail investor seeking a blockchain investment proposition, these are golden building blocks that simply cannot be ignored; it is a huge vote of confidence in the company and its future.

High Grade Gold Assays from Drilling at Blue Moon Prospect Victoria, Australia

ECR Minerals plc (LON:ECR), the precious metals exploration and development company, is pleased to announce the receipt of significant gold assays in relation to the reverse circulation (RC) drilling programme recently completed at the Blue Moon prospect, which is located within the Bailieston gold project area in the state of Victoria, Australia.

ECR’s wholly owned Australian subsidiary Mercator Gold Australia Pty Ltd (“MGA”) has 100% ownership of the Bailieston project.

Significant intersections from three of twelve RC holes drilled by MGA at Blue Moon are reported below. Assay results for the remaining nine holes are pending. A map showing the location of drill holes completed at Blue Moon by MGA may be viewed through the following link:


Readers are advised to review the Company’s announcement dated 28 January 2019 regarding the commencement of the Blue Moon drill programme, which can be viewed through the following link:


Readers are also advised to review the Company’s further progress update announcement dated 28 February 2019 which highlighted the presence of visible gold in drill cuttings from Blue Moon, which can be viewed through the following link:



  • Following the reporting of visible gold from hole number BBM007 (see 28 February 2019 announcement), assay results received for BBM007, BBM006 and BBM004 have shown both high grade intervals and significant widths of anomalous gold grades;
  • Significant intersections are reported in Table A below and include 2 metres @ 17.87 g/t gold from 57 metres down hole in BBM007 within a zone of 15 metres at 3.81 g/t gold from 51 metres;
  • In addition, BBM006 returned 3m @ 3.88 g/t gold from 170 metres down hole within a zone of 11 metres @ 2.42 g/t gold from 169 metres;
  • These results from Blue Moon indicate that a high grade zone exists within the target sandstone host and further results and work will be required to understand any concentration of mineralisation within shoots.

Craig Brown, Chief Executive Officer of ECR Minerals commented: “These results quantify the field geologists’ assessment of visible gold at Blue Moon during drilling of BBM007 and provide great encouragement for the Company and the Bailieston gold project.

To achieve an intersection of 17.87g/t gold over 2 metres is notable. But also of significance is that this was part of an intersection of 15 metres at 3.81g/t gold from relatively shallow depth.

The Company awaits further results from drilling across Blue Moon, Creswick and Black Cat and will provide updates to the market as appropriate.”

Further information

MGA completed three diamond drill holes (BBM001-3) at the Blue Moon prospect in 2018. The results of this drilling were announced on 6 July 2018, and the relevant announcement can be viewed here:


As previously announced, gold mineralisation at Blue Moon is associated with sandstone plus dykes intruding the sandstone and adjacent to it.

MGA’s 2018 diamond drilling did not obtain fresh sample from beneath the oxide zone. The twelve reverse circulation (RC) holes completed recently (BBM004-15) aimed to intercept the sandstone on 50 metre spacing across three sections and to gain samples from beneath the oxide zone.

BBM004 & 6 intercepted the host sandstone beneath the oxide zone. Logging recorded estimates of up to 4% pyrite and 2% arsenopyrite with minor quartz. No visible gold was seen in these samples.

The base of the oxide zone was at 64 metres in BBM007 within the host sandstone. Visible gold was seen in three samples (3 metres @ 13.4 g/t gold from 57 to 60 metres). It is possible these are elevated gold values as a result of supergene enrichment close to the base of the oxide zone.

Cadence Minerals Plc (KDNC) Acquisition of Lithium Assets in Australia

Cadence Minerals (AIM/NEX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY; “Cadence”) is pleased to announce that it has agreed to acquire three highly prospective assets in Australia that are in regions with proven high-grade lithium mineralisation. The mechanism to facilitate this acquisition is via varying binding investment agreements in place with Lithium Technologies Pty Ltd (“LT”) and Lithium Supplies Pty Ltd (“LS”) that Cadence entered on 11 December 2017 to acquire up to 100% of six prospective hard rock lithium assets in Argentina.


  • Varying the agreements with LT & LS delivers Cadence with the opportunity to immediately start developing three highly prospective lithium projects in Australia, while still retaining Cadence’s exposure to the six assets in Argentina.
  • The acquisition covers three projects – Picasso (Western Australia – WA), Litchfield (Northern Territories – NT) and Alcoota (NT) – that are located  in regions with proven lithium mineralisation and supportive mining infrastructure
  • The Picasso project (license granted) is near Alliance Mineral Assets’ (ASX: A40; SGX: 40F; “AMA”) high-profile Bald Hill Mine in WA (note: AMA recently completed a 50:50 A$400m+ merger with delisted Tawawa Resources [ASX: TAW] & raised $40M to develop the  asset base)
  • Demonstrating exploration upside for Picasso, the Bald Hill Mine is producing a spodumene concentrate and has a JORC (2012) compliant mineral resource of 26.5Mt @ 0.96% Li2O; probable ore reserves at 11.3Mt @ 1.01% Li2O
  • The Litchfield project (license granted), located near Darwin (NT), is contiguous to Core Lithium’s (ASX: CXO) ground and has a JORC compliant mineral resource of 8.55Mt @ 1.33% Li2O for its Finnis project (for all six deposits)
  • Finally, the Alcoota project (license to be-granted) is circa 145km NE of Alice Springs (NT) and has seen comparatively limited exploration, though significant geochemistry samples from 10km south of the project returned assays of 10.2% & 9.6% Li2O , with evidence suggesting there is a pegmatite zone within tenure prospective for lithium mineralisation

Kiran Morzaria, Chief Executive Officer, added:

“The Board is delighted with this variation agreement since it will enable the exploration team in Australia to commence work immediately on developing prime lithium assets, starting with the Picasso project in Western Australia. Alliance Mineral Assets’ recently raised AU$ 40 million to develop its lithium assets in the region, including its high-profile Bald Hill Mine, which located as it is nearby to Picasso, underlines the opportunity and potential upside for Cadence 

More importantly, this transaction is strategically beneficial as the Australian projects were acquired without any material variation to the monetary value of the acquisition agreed over the six Argentina assets. At a stroke, this delivers Cadence three additional opportunities to create incremental value for shareholders while continuing to progress the highly prospective Argentina assets.”


A more detailed summary of the key salient points for each of the lithium assets follows:

Picasso project, WA

The Picasso project is located 50km from the city of Norseman, which connects via rail to the southern Port of Esperance. Moreover, it is circa 40km south of the newly formed Alliance Mineral Assets’ (AMA) high-profile Bald Hill Mine. This region is well known for high-grade lithium mineralisation, with the formation of AMA (via a AU$400 million merger with now delisted Tawana Resources and AU$40 million in fresh exploration funding) providing demonstratable evidence.

Picasso’s proximity to the Bald Hill Mine (which commenced producing lithium spodumene concentrate in March 2018) is a significant positive feature since it is a high-grade economically viable deposit:

Ø The JORC (2012) compliant total mineral resource is 26.5Mt @ 0.96% Li2O (255.2k contained tonnes) & 149ppm Ta2O5 (8,600lbs contained); and;

Ø Probable ore reserves of 11.3Mt @ 1.01% Li2O (114.1kt contained) & 160ppm Ta2O5 (4,000lbs contained)

Further, demonstrating the region’s potential, Liontown Resources’ (ASX: LTR) latest drilling program (15km south of Picasso) has intersected excellent lithium mineralisation at its two projects: Buldania (41m @ 1.0% Li2O and 35m @ 1.2% Li2O) and Killaloe (58m @ 1.2% Li2O).

The Picasso project’s geology is very similar to occurrences in AMA’s and Liontown Resources’ ground, both of which both have proven lithium mineralisation. Specifically, the Geological Survey of Western Australia (GSWA) has mapped granitic pegmatites (which typically host lithium-bearing minerals such as spodumene) within the tenure.

Encouragingly, based on analysing GSWA maps, there are more outcropping granite units and mapped pegmatites in the Picasso project than AMA’s ground. Furthermore, significant weathering has potentially restricted identifying many more pegmatites at the surface, which demonstrates further exploration upside.

Litchfield project, NT

The Litchfield project is close to Darwin Port and supportive mining infrastructure but in a region considered mineral rich, yet materially under-explored. Litchfield is located in the Bynoe pegmatite field, which is known to host lithium mineralisation.

A huge positive for the Litchfield project is its proximity to its, Core Lithium, which has five demonstratable spodumene lithium deposits within 1-2km of the north-west boundary. These deposits, collectively called the Finniss project, have a JORC (2012) compliant total mineral resource of 7.25Mt @ 1.41% Li2O (excludes Sandras deposit further south).

Of these, the BP33 deposit, which is over 140m deep and 20-40m wide, has produced some spectacular intersections across several drill-holes:

  • 75m @ 1.68 % Li2O including 55m @ 1.97% Li2O
  • 36m @ 1.61% Li2O including 14m @ 2.05% Li2O
  • 49m @ 1.02% Li2O

Interestingly, a closer examination of satellite imagery along the western boundary confirms the geology is comparable, highlighting the prospect of contiguous mineralisation. Notably, this shows within the Litchfield project that there is high potential for lithium pegmatite bodies to be apparent.

While negligible exploration for lithium has been undertaken in the Litchfield project (explaining a dearth of drilling & geochemical results), the exploration upside is significant given Core Lithium has produced some of the best intercepts in Australia.

Alcoota project, NT

The Alcoota project is circa 145km NE of Alice Springs but has seen limited lithium exploration. However, recent rock chip samples indicate there is strong potential to uncover high-grade spodumene mineralisation. Notably, Northern Cobalt (ASX: N27), which has several projects in the region targeting lithium mineralisation, identified a new zone of pegmatites 12km long by up to 2km wide that extends into the Alcoota project from the SE boundary. Furthermore, directly 10km south in the adjacent tenure, assay results for rock chip samples returned respective grades up to 10.2% & 9.6% Li2O.

Overall, with granites and related pegmatite-intruded schist units extending into the Alcoota project (from the south), it explains why analogous lithium mineralisation is highly likely apparent.

Priority exploration targets

The geology team have already identified priority and secondary targets for exploration within each of the projects. Further, as the Picasso and Litchfield projects are already granted, the immediate focus will be to expedite updating desktop reviews and commence field trips for surface sampling and assay, followed by a ranking of priority drilling targets.

Details of the Transactions

Cadence has agreed a variation to the agreements with LT and LS. As previously announced (click here), Cadence can acquire 100% of Lithium Technologies Pty Ltd and Lithium Supplies Pty.

The variation will result in LT & LS acquiring between them 100% of Synergy Prospecting Ltd (“Synergy”), which owns the three lithium projects in Australia. As two of Synergy’s assets are granted, Cadence has agreed to move forward with increasing is ownership in LT & LS form 4% to 31.5% via:

  • Issuing 373,544,298 million Cadence shares to the founding shareholders of LT & LS valued at £400,000 (based on 14-day VWAP of £0.0107) to acquire a further 20% stake, which is in line with the terms of the original agreements; and
  •  £300,000 to earn an incremental 7.5% stake, with the funds earmarked to commence developing Synergy’s lithium assets in Australia.

The result of the variation would mean no change to the £ consideration to be paid for of LS and LT, however additional shares would be issued as a result of the change in the share price in Cadence between November 2017 and March 2019.

The principle terms for the acquisition for up to 100% of LT and LS is now as follows.
