EMH’s Potential Cinovec Partner CEZ plans to Build a ‘Gigafactory’ in North Bohemia – Cadence Minerals

EMH’s Potential Cinovec Partner CEZ plans to Build a ‘Gigafactory’ in North Bohemia

An article published on the Radio Prague International website says Czech utility ČEZ plans to build a ‘gigafactory’ for batteries for cars in North Bohemia in the coming years that would use lithium discovered in the Ore Mountains near Cínovec, on the German border.

Cinovec is the largest lithium deposit in Europe and the fourth largest non-brine deposit in the world.

Minister of Industry and Trade Karel Havlíček said during a visit to Berlin on Wednesday that ČEZ plans to use lithium stocks from Germany and the Czech Republic. As such ore from Cinovec will be used to supply the ‘gigafactory’.

The Czech Republic has the biggest lithium reserves in Europe and many politicians have pushed for its mining to be in the hands of a state-controlled company, such as ČEZ.

AIM listed European Metals Holdings (AIM: EMH), through its wholly owned subsidiary, Geomet s.r.o., controls the mineral exploration licenses awarded by the Czech State over the Cinovec Lithium Project.

Currently, CEZ and EMH are close to concluding a deal that will see CEZ become a 51% of Geomet s.r.o., EMH’s wholly owned Czech subsidiary and the holder of the Cinovec licences.

Kiran Morzaria, non-executive director of EMH and CEO of AIM listed mining investment group Cadence Minerals (AIM: KDNC), which owns around 19% of EMH said the proposed development partnership between EMH and CEZ “underscores the importance of Cinovec as a key future battery grade lithium supplier to the European lithium market.”

Cadence Minerals (KDNC) – European Metals (AIM: EMH) Cinovec Project Update – Battery Grade Lithium Hydroxide Sample Produced – Clarification on Test Work Process.

Cadence Minerals (AIM/NEX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to note the update published today by European Metals Holdings Limited (“European Metals” or “EMH”), providing further clarification for the outcomes from a recently completed engineering assessment of the flowsheet and subsequent testwork aimed at demonstrating the ability to produce lithium hydroxide from Cinovec Project ore.  The move by the company to develop a process for the production of lithium hydroxide from the Cinovec project is in response to market forces that continue to move Czech and European manufacturers towards the production of advanced technology batteries.

Highlights:

  • Flowsheet successfully developed and tested for the production of lithium hydroxide from Cinovec ore.
  • A potential production rate in excess of 25,000 t/a lithium hydroxide has been demonstrated to be possible utilising a robust process route proven in the lithium production sector.
  • A formal update of the project PFS reflecting the production of lithium hydroxide is underway and will be completed within the next 6 weeks.

The result of the testwork was the production of a sample of battery grade lithium hydroxide.  The work concentrated on the grade of product produced and not recovery rates. The total amount of product produced was below 10 grams.  

The data is now being used as the foundation for an update of the EMH PFS such that the final product from the process will be battery grade lithium hydroxide with the option to produce battery grade lithium carbonate should the market support both products.  The relevant flowsheets will be available upon completion of this engineering work.

Cadence holds approximately 19.1 percent of the equity in European Metals, which, through its wholly owned Subsidiary, Geomet s.r.o., controls the mineral exploration licenses awarded by the Czech State over Cinovec.

Cadence Minerals Plc (KDNC) – European Metals (AIM: EMH) Cinovec Drill Programme Update.

Cadence Minerals (AIM/NEX: KDNC; OTC: KDNCY) is pleased to note the Cinovec Project drilling results published today by European Metals Holdings Limited (“European Metals” or “EMH”). Initial results from its current eight core-hole resource drilling programme announced by the Company on 5 November 2018 confirms that drilling of five of the eight holes has been completed.  Drilling activities remain suspended and will resume after the end of the snow season. Analytical results for the fifth of the drill holes from the Cinovec South deposit are reported.

Key Points:

  • Hole CIS-14 returned 67m averaging 0.43% Li2O (incl. 3m @ 0.99% Li2O and 0.18% Sn); 8m @ 0.67% Li2O and 0.20% Sn (incl. 4.15m @ 1.00% Li2O and 0.35% Sn); 8m @ 0.21% Sn, 4m @ 0.39% Sn; and 3m @ 0.20% Sn.

The drill hole results are very similar to predictions from European Metals’ current geological model, again demonstrating the quality and robustness of the geological and resource model.

Lithological intervals, incl. rhyolite / granite contact and zones of alteration, were intersected where predicted with a high level of accuracy. Also, the Li, Sn and W grades measured corresponded to the block model.

Cadence holds approximately 19.1 percent of the equity in European Metals, which, through its wholly owned Subsidiary, Geomet s.r.o., controls the mineral exploration licenses awarded by the Czech State over Cinovec.

Cadence Minerals CEO Kiran Morzaria commented: “Once again Cadence are pleased to note the progress made by CEO Keith Coughlan and the European Metals team at the Cinovec lithium and tin project drilling programme. As Keith points out in the EMH announcement, the drilling results have either been in line with, or exceeded expectations set out by the geological and resource model, so we now look forward to the impact of these results on the project economics over the next few weeks.”

Stockhead – Next year will be huge for electric car launches as Europeans race to catch up – Cadence Minerals (KDNC)

Next year will mark the start of a huge EV ramp-up for the world’s biggest carmakers — and that’s expected to have a serious impact on  demand for key battery metals such as lithium, cobalt, manganese, HPA and nickel.

Euro car-makers have a lot of ground to make up on EV leaders Tesla, Nissan and Chinese manufacturers – who continue to break production and sales records every month.

Tesla sold an estimated 22,250 Model 3s in September in the US alone according to this report — the highest ever for sales of a single plug-in electric car in a month, and the first time an EV has beaten 20,000 sales a month in the US market.

French-owned PSA Group — which sells the Peugeot, Citreon, DS, Opel and Vauxhall brands —   is undergoing an self-described “electrification blitz” from next year, as it aims for 100 per cent EV core models by 2025.

This is a company that made net profit of about $2.4 billion on car sale revenues of $50 billion in the first half of 2018.

Its Peugeot and Citreon brands showed off fully EV and hybrid versions of its popular models — due for rollout next year — at the Paris Motor Show last week.

It also unveiled its beautiful, fully electric concept Peugeot e-Legend car.

In response to a change.org petition to get the e-Legend into production, Peugeot boss Jean-Phillipe Imparato says:

Germany’s Volkswagen Group estimates it will sell 3 million EVs in 2025.

Of that, its I.D. models – which starts production next year – are expected to contribute 1 million of those sales.

Audi, also part of the Volkswagen Group has started production of its e-tron EV ahead of full production in 2019; it’s expected to produce about 20,000 a year.

And the first Mercedes-Benz vehicle under the fully electric EQ brand will be launched by mid-2019 – part of a range that is expected to expand to include 10 new models by 2022.
