World’s insatiable appetite for batteries sparks multi billion pound lithium mining boom in Australia! Via abcnews

Growing demand for batteries for electric cars and power storage is driving increased investment in lithium mining in Western Australia. WA is currently supplying more than 40 per cent of the world’s lithium and a new mine in the Pilbara is the latest in a string of investments in the industry. The West Australian Government is now encouraging industry to build a battery factory in the state to capitalise on the boom.

Volkswagen to spend $50 billion on electric car ‘offensive’ – via Mining.com – Cadence Minerals (KDNC)

German automaker Volkswagen said Friday it will spend tens of billions of dollars refocusing the company on the making of electric cars, autonomous vehicles and new mobility services.

The Wolfsburg-based manufacturer, which plans to have some of the new offering in the market by 2023, said the 44-billion euro ($50 billion) investment in what CEO Herbert Diess describes as an “electric offensive,” includes an imminent partnership with US carmaker Ford Motor.

Both companies are fine-tuning details on a deal to jointly make a range of light commercial vehicles, and Dess hopes the agreement will be ready before the end of the year.

Collaboration between the two firms is viewed as a path to significant savings on research and development, while at the same time delivering big revenue.

Ford makes about 40% of all full-size pickups sold in the US, while VW sells almost 15% of the vehicles purchased in China, the world’s largest auto market.

“Volkswagen must become more efficient, more productive and more profitable in order to finance the high expenditure in the future and in order to stay competitive,” Diess said during the press conference.

He noted that Volkswagen was also “seriously considering involvement in battery production.”

One million e-cars

VW has been actively promoting the electric push by creating global production capacities for the construction of 1 million electric cars. On Wednesday, it announced it was converting three of its plants in Germany to build electric cars, ramping up production of zero-local emission cars ahead of tougher European emissions standards.

The company said it would begin local production of electric-powered vehicles at its facilities in Emden and Hannover in 2022, adding that a plant in Zwickau has already been designated for e-car production.

Recent studies show carmakers will need to add electric cars to their sales lineups to meet the new European Union rules on greenhouse gas emissions from 2021. They also highlight how German carmakers need to rethink their business as the growing adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) is expected to cost the country’s key auto industry about 75,000 jobs by 2030, according to a report carried out by the Fraunhofer Institute of Industrial Engineering.

Those figures, the institute said,  were calculated on the assumption that by 2030, a quarter of all vehicles on Germany’s roads will be fully electric. Another 15% is expected to be hybrids, which combine an electric motor with a traditional internal combustion engine, and 60% of the cars will be powered by gasoline or diesel engines that are more fuel-efficient than today.

A more rapid adoption of electric vehicles could threaten up to 100,000 jobs, the study warned, adding that regardless of the final number, there will be suppliers that simply won’t be able to adapt their business model, especially among small- and medium-sized companies.

While relatively slow to catch onto the ongoing EV boom, German carmakers have stepped up their efforts in the wake of VW’s 2015 “diesel gate” emissions cheating scandal, which tainted the reputation of diesel cars and spurred a push towards more environmentally friendly engines.

BMW recently said raw materials needed for car batteries will grow 10-fold by 2025, adding it has been surprised by “just how quickly demand will accelerate”. BMW plans to offer 25 electrified vehicles by 2025 and, like many of its peers, it prefers nickel-manganese-cobalt batteries or NMC. EV pioneer Tesla’s favoured battery technology –nickel-cobalt-aluminum or NCA – already uses less than 3% cobalt.

Battery Energy Storage Is A $1 Trillion Opportunity As Costs Continue To Crash – Forbes

Article by Mike Scott, Forbes

Large-scale energy storage used to be part of the future of energy. But it’s here now, and it’s going to become increasingly important in the years to come.

Clean energy researchers at Bloomberg NEF (BNEF) find that more than $1 trillion will be invested in the sector between now and 2040. The group’s latest Long-Term Energy Storage Outlook says that the “tumbling costs of utility-scale lithium-ion battery storage systems will transform the economic case for batteries in both the vehicle and the electricity sector”, predicting that prices will fall by 52% between 2018 and 2030, adding to the steep declines already experienced this decade.

This will lead to $1.2 trillion of investment flowing to the sector in the next 22 years, creating a cumulative capacity of 942GW, BNEF said. In the near term, the market will be dominated by South Korea and the US, but China will be the driving force from the 2020s onward.

Energy storage is key to helping governments decarbonize their economies by using more renewable energy because the dominant sources, wind and solar, are intermittent and do not provide constant power. “ Cheap batteries mean that wind and solar will increasingly be able to run when the wind isn’t blowing and the sun isn’t shining ,” the report says.

 Yayoi Sekine, energy storage analyst for BNEF and co-author of the report, said: “We have become much more bullish about storage deployments since our last forecast a year ago. This is partly due to faster-than-expected falls in storage system costs, and partly to a greater focus on two emerging applications for the technology – electric vehicle charging, and energy access in remote regions.”

Logan Goldie-Scot, head of energy storage at BNEF, added: “We see energy storage growing to a point where it is equivalent to 7% of the total installed power capacity globally in 2040. The majority of storage capacity will be utility-scale until the mid-2030s, when behind the meter applications overtake.”

Behind-the-meter, or BTM, applications will be installed in business and industrial premises, and in millions of homes. For their owners, they will perform a variety of tasks, including shifting grid demand in order to reduce electricity costs, storing excess rooftop solar output, improving power quality and reliability, and earning fees for helping to smooth voltage on the grid.

Two thirds of installed capacity in 2040 will be in just nine markets – China, the US, India, Japan, Germany, France, Australia, South Korea and the UK, the Outlook says. However, there will also be rapid growth in other markets, especially emerging markets in Africa. Utilities are likely to “recognize increasingly that isolated assets combining solar, diesel and batteries are cheaper in far flung sites than either an extension of the main grid or a fossil-only generator,” the report says.

Energy storage can play a number of roles in the electricity system, helping to balance variable supply and demand, helping the grid operate more efficiently and allowing individual customers to cut their bills by cutting peak-time use . Eventually, it may be possible to aggregate lots of behind-the-meter projects to provide a viable alternative to utility-scale for many applications but it will take years before regulatory frameworks in some countries fully allow this, BNEF says.

Nonetheless, energy storage will become a practical alternative to new-build generation or network reinforcement, the analysts say.

But even with this rapid growth in the market, BNEF says that stationary storage sector will make up only 7% of total battery demand in 2040. “It will be dwarfed by the electrical vehicle market, which will more materially impact the supply-demand balance and prices for metals such as lithium and cobalt,” the Outlook concludes.

Cadence Minerals #KDNC – Macarthur Minerals TSX-V: #MMS appoints Capstan Capital Partners as Exclusive Advisers to Advance Its Significant Iron Ore Projects in Australia

Cadence Minerals (AIM/NEX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to note that Macarthur Minerals (“Macarthur”, TSX-V: MMS) has entered into an exclusive advisory agreement with UK based Capstan Capital Partners LLP (“Capstan”) to seek the necessary funding required to advance Macarthur’s significant iron ore projects located in Western Australia.

Highlights:

  • Macarthur owns 100% of the Macarthur Iron Ore Projects, which are located on approved mining tenements covering approximately 62 km2 and are located 175 km northwest of Kalgoorlie in W Australia. The Macarthur Iron Ore Projects consist of two distinct mineral projects:
  • The Ularring Hematite Project: encompassing hematite iron ore (“hematite”), to be marketed as potential direct shipping and/or beneficiated iron ore; and
  • The Moonshine Magnetite Project: encompassing magnetite iron ore (“magnetite”), to be marketed as a beneficiated magnetite concentrate.
  • The Ularring Hematite Project has been fully approved for mining and the Company has been maintaining the core iron ore projects’ assets in good standing with the Western Australian Government, since their discovery. The Moonshine Magnetite Project presents a very large untapped resource of mostly high-grade magnetite with an expected productive life of at least 50 years.
  • The Company has been reviewing its iron ore projects in light of the emergence of rail and port capacity through to the Port of Esperance and the cessation of mining at Cleveland-Cliffs Inc’s Asia Pacific Iron Ore projects and Mineral Resources Limited’s Carina project.

Cadence holds approximately 12% of the issued equity interest in Macarthur, which is an Australian mining exploration company focused primarily on lithium, iron ore and gold in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. It also has a lithium project in Nevada, USA.

Cadence Minerals #KDNC – Macarthur Minerals TSX-V: #MMS identifies 18 High Priority Conductors for Gold at Hillside Gold Project in Pilbara, W Australia

Cadence Minerals (AIM/NEX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to note that Macarthur Minerals (“Macarthur”, TSX-V: MMS) has identified 18 High Priority Conductors for Gold from its recent heliborne SkyTEM electromagnetic survey at the Hillside Gold Project in Pilbara, Western Australia. The discovery also includes two isolated discrete bedrock conductors. Macarthur has confirmed that all anomalies correlate with historic gold workings, surface copper and gold geochemical anomalies, magnetic anomalies or fault systems.

Highlights:

  • The heliborne SkyTEM survey was flown over 846 line-kilometres at 150m-line spacing covering a total area of 127 km2.Data was captured across two disjunct areas; Area 1 in the north covering 76 km2 and Area 2 in the south covering 51 km2.
  • Data was processed by geophysicists at Newexco Services Pty Ltd. All observed anomalies were ranked against multiple criteria with a total of 18 anomalies considered to be high priority for follow-up in the field and consideration as a drill target.
  • Area 1 of the Aerial Electronic Magnetic (“AEM”) results showed a series of stratigraphic conductors running north-south along the eastern flank of the survey area.
  • Area 2 shows a prominent stratigraphic conductor running along the western side of the survey area, and also contains two discrete conductors central to the survey area. These conductors are interpreted as being “isolated” and may be sources by confined bedrock conductors, which in some cases can be associated with massive sulphide accumulations such as gold and copper.
  • The two discrete conductors are considered likely to be associated with volcanogenic massive sulphide (“VMS”) style copper-gold mineralization and hence are high priority targets. Previously recorded gold and copper anomalies and gold workings lie directly to the north and south along strike of these discrete anomalies. It is speculated that the two discrete conductors could host similar deposits at depth, VMS style.

The identified multiple outstanding anomalies identified will require follow-up exploration in the field. Geological mapping and geochemical sampling will be undertaken across these target areas, followed by drilling of selected targets.

Cadence holds approximately 12% of the issued equity interest in Macarthur, which is an Australian mining exploration company focused primarily on lithium, iron ore and gold in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. It also has a lithium project in Nevada, USA.

The full release can be found at: https://web.tmxmoney.com/article.php?newsid=8631055666624229&qm_symbol=MMS

Cadence Minerals CEO Kiran Morzaria commented:“The dataset recorded from the SkyTEM electromagnetic survey proves that the right geology exists at the Hillside Gold Project, and adds further credence to the project economics for Cameron McCall and the Macarthur Minerals team.”

“From the Cadence Minerals perspective, the update today significantly improves the investment case, and we look forward to the next phase of developments.”

Cadence Minerals #KDNC – Macarthur Minerals (TSX-V: MMS) Acquires New Pilbara Tenement with Historic Base Metal Mineralisation Identified

Cadence Minerals (AIM/NEX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to note that Macarthur Minerals (“Macarthur”, TSX-V: MMS) has applied for an Exploration Licence in close proximity to its Macarthur’s Tambourah Lithium Project in the Pilbara Region of Western Australia. A review of historical data indicates the area is prospective for nickel-copper-cobalt and platinum group element (“PGE”) mineralization.

Highlights:

  • The newly acquired tenement is ideally situated adjacent to the Company’s Exploration Licences E45/4848 and E45/4702, which comprise the Tambourah Lithium Project.
  • The tenement is also in close proximity to West Wits Mining Limited’s Tambina Creek Gold Project where previous exploration reported rock chip samples up to 4.7g/t Au and costean trenching returning 5.7 g/t Au over four meters.
  • The tenement also lies approximately 45 km South of Venturex Resources Limited’s Sulphur Springs and Kangaroo Caves Cu-Zn volcanogenic massive sulphide Deposits.
  • The tenement sits in the East Pilbara Granite–Greenstone Terrain of the Pilbara Craton, a setting that has been defined prospective for VMS style mineralization.
  • The Company recently completed a review of historical data, including a geochemical soil and rock chip sampling program undertaken between 2007 and 2008 Haddington Resources Limited and considers the area to be prospective for nickel-copper-cobalt and PGE minerals.
  • The collective geochem anomalies and drill hole results provide several targets worthy of further exploration. Further close spaced geochemical sampling is required along these structures and will be undertaken on grant of the Exploration Licence.

Cadence holds approximately 12% of the issued equity interest in Macarthur, which is an Australian mining exploration company focused primarily on lithium, iron ore and gold in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. It also has the lithium project in Nevada, USA.

Cadence Minerals CEO Kiran Morzaria commented: “Macarthur Minerals already has a sizeable land package of 1,328 km2 in the Pilbara area which is highly prospective for conventional gold and conglomerate gold deposits. The company’s Tambourah Lithium Project has already yielded promising rock chip results up to 1.47% LiO2, so the addition of a new tenement with a solid exploration pedigree in our view further enhances the Macarthur Minerals investment case. We look forward to further updates from Cameron McCall and the Macarthur Minerals team.”

Cadence Minerals (KDNC) – Auroch Minerals (ASX: AOU) Accelerates Exploration Programme with Commencement of Drilling at Bonaventura.

Cadence Minerals (AIM/NEX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to note that Auroch Minerals (ASX: AOU) has accelerated its drilling programme with the commencement of drilling at its Bonaventura Base-metals Project in South Australia. With Auroch’s maiden drill programme already initiated at the Arden Project, concurrent drilling is now underway at both projects. DDH1 Drilling Pty Ltd (DDH1 Drilling) is on-site at the Bonaventura Project with a Sandvik DE710 drill rig. The first drill-hole has been initiated at the Dewrang Target, where Auroch’s recent IP survey identified a robust chargeability anomaly (over 5 times background) that sits between 150 – 200m depth and continues over a strike of at least 1.5km2. The anomaly is located at the convergence of two major faults identified in the high-resolution aeromagnetics, and is also coincident with anomalous zinc and lead in historic surface samples, thus presenting a high priority drill target for the Auroch team.

Highlights:

  • Drilling at Bonaventura Project has commenced with first hole at the Dewrang Targetunderway.
  • Programme to target high-grade zinc, lead and gold mineralisation at Dewrang, Grainger, Vinco and Kohinoor targets.
  • Programme comprising initial diamond drilling campaign of up to 2,500 metres.
  • Drilling programme expected to take approximately 8 weeks to complete.

Cadence currently owns approximately 7% of the equity in Auroch Minerals, which is an exploration company targeting principally zinc, cobalt and lithium.

Cadence Minerals CEO Kiran Morzaria commented: Once again Cadence Minerals are delighted by the rapid progress made by Aidan Platel and his team. Auroch Minerals is at a pivotal moment in its history as a company. This is best described by Aidan Platel’s comments today – In just four months wehave concurrent drill programmes underway at both Arden and Bonaventura Projects over seven target areas, all of which have the ability to deliver the next major discovery in these respective areas.
