Technology Minerals #TM1 – Exploration Update on the Asturmet Cu-Co-Ni Project, Asturias, NW Spain

Technology Minerals Plc (LSE: TM1), the first listed UK company focused on creating a sustainable circular economy for battery metals, is pleased to announce initial results from a lithogeochemical programme and targeting studies at its 100%-owned Aramo Copper-Cobalt-Nickel (“Cu-Co-Ni”) Project in Asturias, NW Spain. 

Highlights

·     First results from new lithogeochemical sampling at the Aramo Mine on the St. Patrick licence confirm high-grades of cobalt and copper, with associated nickel mineralisation

·    Grab sampling across multiple mineralized veins and alteration zones have confirmed the style and tenor of mineralisation and have reported assays ranging up to 1% – 28% copper, 0.1 – 1.88% cobalt and 0.1 – 1.68% nickel.

·    Lithogeochemical sampling was completed within four accessible working levels at the historic Aramo Cu-Co-Ni mine in Asturias.

·    A total of 205 rock samples have been collected and analysed at ALS Laboratories, Loughrea, Ireland.

·    This work has formed the basis of a broad characterisation study of extensive zones of alteration and mineralisation which are present and clearly observed within parts of Levels 3 and 4 of the mine.

·    A 3D laser survey has also been completed at the Aramo Mine on the historical Levels 3 and 4. This will provide a 3D model framework of the mine workings and allow for systematic and more intensive underground mapping and sampling on these levels.

·    This work will lead to a better understanding of the geological and mineralogical model at Aramo, and in turn form the basis of 3D visual planning for diamond drilling targeting unmined mineralization as well as extensions to the main zones.

·    Mine archive searches have produced targeting data associated with areas outside of the Aramo mine on the St. Patrick Licence as well as targets associated with several other of the Company’s pending licence applications.

Asturmet Project

The Company holds 100% of the Aramo Project through its 100% wholly-owned subsidiary, LRH Resources Limited (“LRHR”), and LRHR’s 100% wholly-owned subsidiary Asturmet Recursós S.L. (“Asturmet”). The Asturmet Project consists of eight exploration permits or P.I. (Permiso del Investigación): St. Patrick (P.I. 30858), St. Andrew (P.I. 30869), St. David (P.I. 30870), Astur A (P.I. 30864), Astur B (P.I. 30865), Astur C (P.I. 30866) and Astur D (P.I. 30868) along with new application Astur F (P.I. 30880). The licences cover a total area of approximately 535km2. The St. Patrick licence (which covers the historic Aramo Mine), was issued to Asturmet in June 2018. The remaining licences are in the application process with the Spanish Mining Administration, with St. Andrew and St. David licences in the final stages of issuance.

Aramo Mine Lithogeochemical Sampling

A total of 205 samples have been collected during a series of underground sampling programmes. These samples were collected as part of a preliminary mapping and lithogeochemical characterisation study to help determine the distribution and nature of the alteration and mineralisation within different parts of the accessible mine. At this time the most accessible and safest access is on Levels 3 and 4 (155 samples) with restricted access on Level 1 and 2 (46 samples). The Socavon at level 0 (4 samples) does not show significant alteration or mineralisation being positioned within the footwall of the system. Each of these areas have been visited and the number of samples collected are summarised below in Table 1.

Table 1: Lithogeochemical sampling at Aramo

The samples were collected from as many of the historically reported mineralised veins (filons) as are currently accessible. At the highest point on Level 4 there are 5 main veins called Metastur, Vein 5 (Horsehead and Pyrite veins) Santa Barbara and San Pedro. On level 3 the main veins that are accessible are San Felipe and to a lesser extent San Vincente.. It should be noted that the samples collected are a combination of both bedrock/sidewall outcrop, collapsed sidewall material that lie below its source location, and float material from spoil both underground and at surface near the portal. These samples were collected specifically as a method of determining the broadest range and distribution of both alteration, mineralisation and associated grade. The next phase of work will include detailed underground mapping and channel sampling to add to a higher degree of grade distribution clarity to the extensive zones of alteration and mineralization seen underground. 

Results from Level 4 

Sampling on Level 4 has confirmed broad zones of pale orange partially dolomitized limestone of the mountain limestone unit, these broader zones tend to be relatively lower in grade than the more discrete and significantly higher-grade mineralised zones which align with the known veins which are partially worked at this level (Figure 1). The primary veins underground are Vein 5, Sta. Barbara and Sn. Pedro. Results from material across all the sampled zones at this level includes material assaying up to 1% – 16% copper, 0.1 – 0.42% cobalt and 0.1 – 1.16% nickel.

Results from Level 3 and 3.5

Sampling on Level 3 has also confirmed broad zones of pale orange partially dolomitised limestone of the mountain limestone unit, these zones are both more extensive and more connected than Level 4 and clearly exhibit strong structural control relating to several different fault orientations as well as an apparent relation to stratigraphic control. Level 3 alteration and mineralisation also appears to be of a generally higher tenor but still shows variable grade distribution within the alteration zones and veins. There is more underground development on level 3 and the main accessible zone is called San Felipe which is intersected at both Level 3 and level 3.5 across four distinct working areas termed Stope A to D, these are the main areas sampled. Results from material across all the sampled zones at this level includes material assaying up to 1% – 28% copper, 0.1 – 1.88% cobalt and 0.1 – 1.68% nickel.

Results from Level 2

Sampling on Level 2 is restricted to one of the main adits and one side gallery, when the mine closed the company closed off some of the access by piling up waste material to prevent access to the main zone of mineralisation which lies vertically below that seen on levels 3 and 4. Limited access at this time has so far restricted underground sampling to some peripheral alteration and mineralisation outside of the main historically mined areas. Results from material across all the sampled zones at this level includes material assaying up to 1% – 19% copper, 0.1 – 1.38% cobalt and 0.1 – 0.55% nickel. 

Results from Level 1 

Sampling on Level 1 is also restricted to one of the main access adit and therefore sampling has also been restricted to some minor peripheral alteration and mineralisation. Results from material across all the sampled zones at this level includes material assaying up to 0.5% copper, 0.1 % cobalt and 0.1% nickel. Access further into the main body of the mine will be required in order to reach the main mineralised zones. 

Other areas 

The Socavon is a lower-level footwall access haulage drift that was not connected to the higher levels of the mine during the active mining period at Aramo. The 1km long adit appears to have been designed to undercut the main mineralised zones within the unmineralised footwall of the mine.

All samples collected  have followed a strict sampling and chain of custody process and were analysed by ALS Laboratories in Loughrea, County Galway, Ireland. Samples were analysed by four-acid ICP-AES analysis.

Underground Laser Survey at Aramo Mine

The main period of operation of the Aramo mine was between 1948 and 1955 with peak copper production between 1953 and 1955 before final closure in 1957. An extensive search for historical mine records, underground plans and technical data has to date yielded a limited number of  underground maps of variable quality and of relatively little use in the modern context for recording ongoing underground mapping and sampling.

Therefore, the company commissioned a 3D underground laser survey at Aramo which was carried out Sociedad Asturiana de Diversificación Minera (SADIM) a part of Grupo Hunosa, in association with Ingeniero Oscar Diez Regil.

The initial survey was completed in all of the main accessible parts of the mine on levels 3 and 4 (Figures 2 and 3).  The preliminary results exceeded expectations both in quality and detail (Figures 4 and 5). The maps that can now be produced from this work have facilitated the accurate georeferencing of all geological and geochemical data collected to date and will form the basis of the next phase of detailed mapping and systematic sampling.

The primary purpose of the survey and associated geological mapping work is to enhance the understanding of the geometry of the mineralising system at Aramo and aid in the planning of surface diamond drillholes targeting both known mineralised zones and potential unmined extensions. This will include verifying the non JORC compliant historically reported “recognised reserves” (detailed below), on mapped structures, both proximal to the mine and also westwards under the plateau.

Mine Archive Review

A search for data related to the Aramo Mine and the surrounding licenced areas has been ongoing. Very little data appears to have survived the intervening 70 years since the area was actively producing copper from these areas. However, mine records examined have revealed multiple areas that were licenced at different times across what is now the St. Patrick Licence and which were being targeted with exploration proximal to the Aramo mine for reported copper (and associated cobalt/nickel) occurrences. The same sources show similar historically licenced areas on targets across several of the other licence applications that the Company has with the Mining administration. A full assessment of these newly discovered data are ongoing and will be reported on in due course.

Local Geology

The Aramo Cu-Co-Ni Project is classed as an epithermal carbonate-hosted deposit and lies within the western closure of the Cantabrian Orocline Fold and Thrust Belt. The Aramo Mine is located within the Aramo “Caliza de Montana” stratigraphic unit comprising of organic rich limestones. Mineralisation is broadly confined to wide alteration zones with more localised east – west orientated high-grade veins and stockwork mineralisation. The alteration zones, which are themselves pervasively mineralised, are interpreted to form extensive “pipe-like” bodies with significant vertical development at major fault intersection planes. These zones develop laterally outwards along individual faults creating the so called “Filon” zones. Lower angled stratigraphic bedding within the host limestones within the pipelike zones appear to create flatter zones or lenses of alteration and mineralisation with a 30 – 40-degree orientation dipping westwards.

The primary sulphide mineralisation comprises of copper-nickel-cobalt sulphides with three recognised stages of mineralisation accompanied by dolomite and quartz precipitation. An important supergene stage postdates the sulphides and is associated with calcite gangue. Mineralisation is considered to be Permian in age. 

The Aramo copper-cobalt mine on the St. Patrick licence was the main mine in the area and ceased production the late 1950s. The mining operations were on a relatively small scale, and the records for production, grades, development, and geology were poorly kept. One surviving record widely quoted estimated that approximately 200,000 tons of 1-20% Cu, 1-3% Ni and 1-3% Co ore were extracted from the Aramo mine, with at least 400,000 tonnes reported as (for the time non-JORC compliant) “recognised reserves” in a subvertical orebody formed by veins and breccia pipes of 150m by 40-50m and 600m deep. This has not yet been verified, but it is expected that the ongoing work leading to a comprehensive drilling programme in due course will work towards establishing coherent mineralised zones both within the mine area and exploration targets within potential satellite zones/filons that are structurally and stratigraphically associated with the Aramo Fault both to the west and south.

The Aramo Mine

The Aramo mine was most recently in production from 1947 and ceased production in 1957. It has remained dormant for the last 65 years. The mine has several distinct mineralised zones with extensive alteration and associated Cu-Co-Ni mineralisation at a number of levels over a known vertical extent of 530m whilst westwards, there lies a further 200m of vertical prospective stratigraphy above the mine and to the west below the plateau.

Currently there are four primary levels termed Level 1 (995m O.D.), Level 2 (1085m O.D), Level 3 (1150m O.D) with a small sub level and stope termed Level 3.5 (1155m O.D.) and Level 4 (1180m O.D.). Access to-date has been primarily on Level 4 and parts of Level 3 with only limited access completed so far on Levels 1 and 2. The Socavon termed Level 0 is a footwall adit approximately 1km in length and is located at an elevation of 703m O.D. close to the historical mine processing plant. The only mine plans in existence from between 1947 and 1957 illustrate the mine planned development only have been digitally captured and geo-referenced and are represented in Figures 6 and 7 below.

Alex Stanbury, Chief Executive Officer of Technology Minerals, said: “We are pleased the initial results from our sampling survey at the historic Aramo mine within the St. Patrick licence has confirmed high grade Copper-Cobalt-Nickel mineralisation. In the coming months we plan to expand our exploration campaign which will help us continue to gain a better understanding the full potential of the project.  The Asturmet Project forms part of our wider strategy to move forward and advance multiple exploration campaigns across our portfolio of mineral resource projects focused on cobalt, copper, nickel, manganese, and lithium.”

Technology Minerals #TM1 – Leinster Project field geochemical exploration programme is advancing on schedule and confirms a well-defined spodumene pegmatite boulder train on Prospecting Licence Area 1597

Technology Minerals Plc (LSE: TM1), the first listed UK company focused on creating a sustainable circular economy for battery metals, is pleased to announce field exploration work is advancing on schedule on the North-West Leinster Lithium Project, with a particular focus on Prospecting Licence Area (“PLA”) 1597.

Highlights:

  • Field geochemical exploration programme advancing on schedule.
  • The first target area in the vicinity of the historical spodumene bearing trench at Knockeen East is being targeted by a closely spaced deep overburden sampling programme.
  • The area is also undergoing intensive prospecting which is consolidating the extent of the spodumene pegmatite boulder train as well as significantly enhancing the resolution of the dispersion zone and therefore the target potential drill target areas.
  • A total of 46 rock samples and 233 deep overburden samples along with 13 QAQC samples have been collected to-date and submitted to ALS Laboratories for analysis.
  • Deep overburden sampling and prospecting is continuing across the survey grid area, and will migrate to the second target area at Carriglead in due course.
  • This work is being carried out to help determine specific areas for follow up drilling.

Field Exploration Programme update

The current phase of detailed exploration work is centred on an where a forty-year-old historical report described a trench excavated at Knockeen Townland on PLA 1597 as having uncovered in bedrock, a 1.8m wide spodumene-bearing pegmatite dyke. However no detailed laboratory assays or geological maps of the trench were reported at that time. Historical prospecting around the trench also reported the occurrence of up to 10 large boulders of spodumene bearing pegmatite at surface some of which may have come from the pegmatite dyke historically intersected in the trench.

The current exploration programme is utilising a well tried and tested geochemical exploration technique called Pionjar or Deep Overburden Sampling. This technique uses equipment to penetrate the soil and glacial till down to the bedrock interface where a sample is collected for analysis. The depth of the sampled material varies between 1m and 5m depth at Knockeen and is much more accurate than sampling nearer to surface soil material as the sample point is closer to the bedrock source of the lithium bearing pegmatites and helps to remove the effects of geochemical dispersion at higher levels in the overburden profile.

The first part of the programme will be carried out in two stages commencing on an initial closely spaced grid (Grid 1) over the area of the historical trench, which will be completed on 25m spaced lines with samples collected at 15m intervals or stations. This will be followed by Stage 2 extending westwards following the trend of the spodumene pegmatite boulder train and termed Grid 2 (in progress) this grid will cover a larger area at 50m line spacing and 30m sample intervals (Figure 2).

The field programme commenced in October 2022 and will continue to late November 2022. To date, a total of 233 deep overburden samples along with 13 QAQC samples have been collected and submitted to ALS Laboratories for analysis, results are pending.

In association with the deep overburden sampling a detailed programme of prospecting is ongoing and to-date 46 rock samples have been collected and submitted to ALS Laboratories for analysis. Subject to any delays in the analysis of the samples, the results for the entire programme are expected to be processed and returned by the end of 2022.

Once the two grids at Knockeen are completed the team will move to the second target area at Carriglead two kilometres to the south where a similar historically reported and since verified spodumene pegmatite boulder train has been identified.

Target focus PLA 1597

The licence, which was awarded to Technology Minerals’ wholly owned subsidiary LRH Resources Limited (“LRH”) on 22 March 2022, forms part of the Company’s Leinster Property exploration block, which is operated under an exclusive Option and Earn-in agreement with Global Battery Metals Ltd (“GBML”), (TSXV: GBML; OTCQB: REZZF; Frankfurt: REZ) with no project expenditure required by the Company.

PLA 1597 was identified as prospective for lithium pegmatite potential by LRH and its exploration consultants Aurum Exploration Services (“Aurum”) following detailed desktop studies which outlined two proximal areas of spodumene-bearing pegmatite reported by previous operators in the mid-1970s. Initial prospecting confirmed a high grade spodumene bearing pegmatite boulder dispersion train during a due diligence prospecting survey at two localities (Figure 1). Results from the six samples returned values between 0.70% Li2O to 2.95% Li2O at Knockeen and Carriglead and have been reported previously.

Alex Stanbury, CEO of Technology Minerals, said: “We are pleased the exploration campaign at the Leinster Project in Ireland is progressing well, where previous work has confirmed high-grade lithium in spodumene pegmatites.  The current programme, which is expected to be completed by the end of November, will help to determine target areas for follow up drilling and we look forward to receiving the assay results in due course.”

Technology Minerals #TM1 – Exploration Update on the Asturmet Cu-Co-Ni Project, Asturias, NW Spain

Technology Minerals Plc (LSE: TM1), the first listed UK company focused on creating a sustainable circular economy for battery metals, is pleased to announce the St Patrick licence has been extended for three years and that field operations are progressing with 164 new samples submitted for analysis at the 100% owned Aramo Copper-Cobalt-Nickel (“Cu-Co-Ni”) Project in Asturias, NW Spain.  

Highlights

·    The St Patrick Licence, on which the Aramo Mine Project is located, has been renewed for three years extending the licence to June 2025.

·    A total of 104 rock samples and 43 soil samples collected on the licence during the most recent field campaign, have been submitted for analysis.

·    A 3D laser survey has been completed at the Aramo Mine on the historical levels three and four with results exceeding expectations in quality and detail. This work will facilitate more intensive underground mapping and sampling on these levels.

·    A new licence application covering two historical copper mines workings termed Astur F covering 73km2 has been submitted for application.

·    Field programmes are ongoing at the project with a more expansive exploration campaign planned for the St Patrick Licence in the coming months.

Alex Stanbury, Chief Executive Officer of Technology Minerals, said: “I would like to thank the Ministry of Industry, Employment and Economic Promotion of the Government of Asturias for granting us with the three-year extension for the St Patrick Licence.  The licence renewal was awarded following excellent and thorough work from our team who compiled comprehensive technical reports which covered work to date and our plans at St Patrick for the next three years.

“Exploration at St Patrick is progressing well, and we look forward to receiving the analysis of the samples collected during the recent field campaign after initial results at the historic Aramo mine within the St Patrick licence confirmed high grade Copper-Cobalt-Nickel mineralisation. The analysis will further enhance our understanding of the full potential of the project.

“The Asturmet Project forms part of our wider portfolio of mineral resource projects focused on cobalt, copper, nickel, manganese, and lithium. Our exploration strategy is to advance projects up the value curve through prudent use of capital to attract partners and unlock significant potential value to be added to the Company’s portfolio.”

Licence Renewal

The St Patrick Licence on which the Aramo Mine Project is located has successfully completed its first three-year renewal process.  The Ministry of Industry, Employment and Economic Promotion of the Government of Asturias extended the St Patrick Licence (P.I. No. 30858) for a further three-year period to June 2025. 

As part of the application process, the Company submitted three-year technical reports on work completed to date along with proposed work programmes and associated budgets for the next three-year period. These were approved under the protection of the Law 39/2015, at 1 October, under the Common Administrative Procedure of the Public Administrations. The official resolution of the three-year extension is dated 20 July 2022.

Field Sampling Sample Submission 

A total of 104 rock samples (plus 12 QAQC) and 43 soil samples (plus 5 QAQC) for a total of 164 samples were collected during the most recent field campaign and comprised of samples targeting a number of different localities detailed in the table below.

The samples were collected at two primary areas of interest. The first area lies across a 2.5km trend across the St Patrick Licence on the Aramo Plateau and were collected as part of a systematic mapping and sampling programme on a number of significantly altered and mineralised zones (total 83 samples). Secondly a further 20 due diligence samples were collected on the new licence application Astur F at a second historical copper mine site. A single verification sample was also collected within the Aramo Mine on the St Pedro vein system in association with planned petrographic analysis. In parallel with the mapping, 43 soil samples were collected across several anomalous areas identified through a remote sensing survey on the Aramo Plateau.  These samples will be used to validate and aid in the signature characterisation of the anomalies identified.

Underground Laser Survey at Aramo Mine

The Company is pleased to report that phase 1 of the first modern and detailed 3D continuous laser survey of part of the Aramo mine has been completed on parts of levels 3 and 4. This work is integral to the upcoming detailed structural mapping and sampling programme to be conducted across several alteration and mineralised zones within the mine. The survey was conducted by respected mining engineers, Sociedad Asturiana de Diversificación Minera (SADIM), a part of Grupo Hunosa in association with Ingeniero Oscar Diez Regil.

The preliminary results have exceeded expectations in quality and detail. The maps produced from this work facilitating the accurate georeferencing of geological and geochemical data will enhance the understanding of the mineralising system and aid in identifying key aspects of the system critical to forward targeting of new zones. 

Further work

Field programmes are ongoing at the project with a full and expansive exploration programme planned for the St Patrick Licence in the coming months, which includes geological mapping and sampling, remote sensing analysis detailed geochemical alteration and mineralisation signature analysis through IOGAS and a review of appropriate geophysical techniques to enhance structural targeting for mineralization on the plateau. All of the aforementioned programmes are aimed at delineating drill targets both on the plateau and extending the known mineralization at the Aramo Mine. 

Licence Application Astur F

A new licence has been submitted by the wholly owned subsidiary Asturmet Recursos SL in an area in eastern Asturias and termed Astur F (73km2). This area covers several known historical copper mine workings, which initial due diligence sampling confirmed an association with cobalt and nickel which would not have been targeted by the historical operators. With the addition of the Astur F submission, the Company is currently undergoing the application procedure with the mining administration for seven licences (totalling 473km2).

Technology Minerals #TM1 – Acquisition of Blackbird Creek Property

Technology Minerals (LSE: TM1), the first listed UK company focused on creating a sustainable circular economy for battery metals, announces that its wholly owned subsidiary Techmin Limited has exercised its option to acquire 100% interest in the Blackbird Creek Property in Lemhi County, Idaho (USA) from DG Resource Management Ltd (“DGRM”), a corporation located in Alberta, Canada.

The acquisition adds 158 contiguous lode claims covering an area of approximately 1,285 hectares (3,175 acres) to the Company’s existing land position, located immediately southeast of Jervois Mining Ltd’s Idaho Cobalt Operations (“ICO”). ICO is expected to be operational this year and will be the United States first primary cobalt mine in decades. The Blackbird Creek Property is situated within the Idaho Cobalt Belt (“ICB”), a 60 km long metallogenic district characterised by stratiform/tabular copper-cobalt deposits.

Principal Acquisition terms:

·      A cash payment, which was completed last year, of CAD$100,000 (approx. £59,057 at current conversion rates);

·      CAD$800,000 (approx. £472,499 at current conversion rates) to be paid by the issue of 21,013,440 new ordinary shares in Technology Minerals (the “New Shares”) priced at the Admission price of £0.0225 per share;

·      DGRM will retain the rights to a 2% net smelter royalty (“NSR”). Techmin Limited has retained the option to buy back 1% of the NSR from DGRM for CAD$1.5M; and

·      DGRM have entered into a lock in and orderly marketing agreement with the Company under which DGRM have agreed that they shall not, offer, sell, contract to sell, pledge or otherwise dispose of any of the New Shares for a period of 12 months commencing on 3 March 2022 or dispose of any of the New Shares except through an orderly marketing arrangement for a period of 24 months commencing on 3 March 2022. 

Alex Stanbury, Chief Executive Officer of Technology Minerals, said: “We are pleased to complete the acquisition of the Blackbird Creek Property, a project covering 1,285 ha that sits in the Idaho Cobalt Belt and has the potential to host significant cobalt-copper deposits. The Blackbird Creek Property forms part of our exploration strategy to advance assets up the value chain with the aim of creating additional value in the Company for our shareholders.” 

Background:

The Blackbird Creek Property is located within the Idaho Cobalt Belt, a 60 km long metallogenic district characterised by stratiform/tabular Co-Cu deposits. The ICB is hosted in the Mesoproterozoic Belt Supergroup (1,470 Ma and 1,370 Ma), juxtaposed between later Proterozoic (1,370 Ma) quartz monzonitic intrusions. The Belt Supergroup was deposited in a large rift basin, likely as large submarine fan complexes that were frequently submerged by continuing subsidence within the basin. The Belt Supergroup runs from southern Montana to northern Canada. Within the Blackbird Creek Property, the Belt Supergroup is characterised by two major units, the Lemhi Group (Inyo Creek, West Fork, Big Creek, Apple Creek, and Gunsight formations) and the Swauger Quartzite.

Sulphide mineralisation on the Property occurs primarily within the siltite unit of the Apple Creek Formation.  Three types of Co-Cu-Au occurrences have been reported associated with the Apple Creek Formation within the ICB:

• Type 1: Cobalt-copper-arsenic-rich deposits of the Blackbird Mine type. Generally, these contain approximately equal amounts of cobalt and copper, with varying amounts of gold and pyrite. Dominant minerals include cobaltite (CoAsS) and chalcopyrite (CuFeS2). The cobaltite accounts for nearly all the arsenic content within these occurrences. This syngenetic and stratabound mineralisation is associated with mafic sequences, and deposits are typically in tabular form.

• Type 2: Cobalt-bearing pyrite-magnetite deposits with variable chalcopyrite and low arsenic content. These occurrences are typically hosted by fine-grained metasediments from the lower unit of the Apple Creek Formation. Mineralisation is strata-bound, and locally is stratiform and found within syn-sedimentary soft sediment structures.

• Type 3: Cobalt-bearing tourmaline-cemented breccias. These breccias are common in the lower unit of the Apple Creek Formation, and typically host cobaltite. These breccias are oriented roughly perpendicular to stratigraphy and occur as hard, dense, black vein-type pods and lenses. Contacts with the breccia are fluidized and display prominent foliation parallel to the breccia contact.

Numerous prospects with cobalt and copper mineralisation have been identified on the Property, including the Ludwig, Patty B, Anderson West, Anderson, Edith B, Raven, Slippery Gulch and Copper Hill (also known as Blackbird Creek South and West Fork Cobalt prospects). The primary exploration targets on the Property are the Apple Creek Formation tourmaline breccias, just like those of the historical Noranda Blackbird Mine, Jervois Idaho Cobalt Operation and First Cobalt’s Iron Creek Project.

Technology Minerals – Recycling Blueprint for the EV and Battery Industry a Racing Certainty?

By Arjun Thakkar and Alan Green

Along with Christmas parties, the most oft discussed topic in 2021 was almost certainly the COP26 conference, net zero carbon neutrality, sustainability, climate change and other aspirational matters pointing to an internal combustion engine free world. There’s plenty of awareness of the issues surrounding climate change and the environment, but the simple facts are that the leading economies around the world (never mind the developing nations) are woefully underprepared to tackle these issues and create the circular economy required to support sustainability.

Proactive Investors – Technology Minerals #TN1 hails Recyclus operation deal with battery collection group

Technology Minerals #TM1 – Chairman Robin Brundle joins Proactive London’s Katie Pilbeam about their 49% owned Recyclus Group signing a deal with Slicker Recycling to collect battery waste from around the UK and deliver it to its plants.

Recyclus has unique technologies that allow it to reprocess both lead-acid and lithium-ion power units. Next year the business expects to deal with 16,000 tonnes of the former and 5,000 tonnes of the latter.

Slicker Recycling has 13 depots and uses 25,000 collection points nationally.

Technology Minerals #TM1 – Partnership with Slicker Recycling

Technology Minerals Plc (LSE: TM1), the first listed UK company focused on creating a sustainable circular economy for battery metals, is pleased to announce that Recyclus Group, a 49% Technology Minerals owned company, has signed a partnership agreement with Slicker Recycling Limited (“Slicker Recycling”), one of the UK’s leading hazardous waste management and service delivery providers, with a view to further their visions of creating a circular economy for the UK battery market.

The agreement between Recyclus Group and Slicker Recycling (the “Partnership”) launches a national initiative with the aim of improving the UK capability for battery recycling from dangerous, small-scale manual operations to recycling safely and sustainably on an industrial scale – which the Company believes is a necessary development for the UK to reach its climate targets.

Slicker Recycling, which has 13 depots nationwide and executes more than 25,000 collections per annum, will collect battery waste from around the UK and safely transport it to the closest Recyclus Group Ltd (“Recyclus”) plant.  Recyclus is a battery-recycling business with innovative technology that can safely salvage key materials from spent batteries to produce black mass (consisting of cobalt, nickel, lithium, and manganese).  These recycled raw materials can then be subsequently fed back into the market for re-use and resale.  Recyclus will also test the safety of the batteries to determine whether they should be re-used or repurposed. Recyclus believes this partnership alone could deliver up to 40% of the lead-acid battery capacity, and up to 90% of its Li-ion capacity once the two plants are commissioned in Q1 2022.

The Partnership is expected to be a driver in Technology Minerals’ growth strategy and aim to increase its recycling capacity in 2022 for lead-acid batteries to 16,000 tonnes per annum and 5,000 tonnes per annum for lithium-ion (“Li-ion”) batteries.   

Alex Stanbury, Chief Executive Officer of Technology Minerals, said: “We are delighted to launch this national initiative for battery recycling in the UK and partner with Slicker Recycling, one of the UK’s largest waste collectors.  The Partnership will help ramp up our recycling capacity for both lead-acid and Li-ion batteries and builds on our strategy and goal to help tackle the critical upcoming supply shortages of the key minerals being used to drive the global transition to electric vehicles. 

“Technology Minerals and Slicker Recycling recognise the market need for an integrated, strategic waste management partnership, and this end-to-end logistical solution furthers both our interests in addressing the UK’s battery waste crisis. It is vital that companies work together to expand homegrown waste management solutions if the UK is to achieve its 2050 net-zero target.”

Mark Olpin, Managing Director of Slicker Recycling, said: “Diversifying into new and innovative markets is a key part of our growth plans and our link-up with Technology Minerals is a vital partnership to kick-start an effective, circular economy solution for the UK’s growing battery market.

“The raw materials extracted from the used batteries collected as part of this partnership will go back into industry as part of a closed loop solution. This is especially welcome at a time when electric car production and ownership is at its highest ever level, with that trend set to continue on a steep curve, therefore needing sustainable solutions to keep it moving and growing.

“We have strong credentials in the automotive sector so this partnership is the perfect fit at a time when both our organisations are firmly focused on the circular economy and how we preserve finite resources.

“Overall, we are delighted to be at the forefront of this forward-thinking partnership which is an example of how companies can join up their expertise for the good of the planet.”
