MGX Minerals Receives Independent Confirmation of Rapid Lithium Extraction Process

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA / April 20, 2017 / MGX Minerals Inc. (“MGX” or the “Company”) (CSE: XMG / FKT: 1MG / OTC: MGXMF) is pleased to announce it has received independent laboratory-testing results from the Saskatchewan Research Council (“SRC”) on the Company’s patent-pending “Method for Extraction of Lithium from Salt Brine” (U.S. Provisional Patent #62/419,011).
As reported by SRC, the Company’s proprietary design process was successful in recovering up to 83.7% lithium (Li) and concentrating 461 ppm Li from a 71 ppm representative sample of formation brine originating from the Sturgeon Lake oilfield.
“The results of laboratory testing by SRC provide third-party validation of our proprietary design process and its ability to rapidly separate lithium and other valuable minerals from wastewater brine,” stated MGX President and CEO Jared Lazerson. “We have made many advancements since this original process design, but this validation is important and we will continue to rely on SRC for independent testing and improvements of both active and newly developed passive filtration technologies.”
Excerpts from the SRC Summary Report- Metallurgical Tests and Executive Summary- are outlined verbatim below. Note that certain portions of the report have been redacted to protect proprietary information and data:
Table 1. Assay Results of the as Received Brine Sample
Element                 K    Mg            Na         Cl         Ca    SO 2-4    Sr         Br    Li
Assay (ppm)    4212    2903    60747    116632    24753    186    1080    334    71
SRC independently carried out multi-stage evaporation tests following the patent-pending design process as provided by MGX. As reported by SRC in the executive summary:
1.    It was not feasible to remove 90% of the water in the primary evaporation of the Formation brine because the formation of the jel-like material made the filtration impossible. The maximum water evaporation was 66% of the feed brine mass before the jel formation. Approximately 97% of Na, 26% of K, 35% of Ca and 29% of Mg were precipitated. The recovery of Li and Sr was 75.6% and 68.8%, respectively.
2.    The modified processes including magnesium precipitation by lime followed by the primary evaporation to precipitate NaCl and the secondary evaporation to precipitate CaCl2 and concentrate lithium.
3.    The Mg removal was very effective and more than 99.99% of Mg was removed. The residue Mg in the brine was less than 0.1 ppm. The lithium recovery was 84.1% and the Sr recovery was 80.1%.
4.    In the primary evaporation process, 67% of the feed brine mass was evaporated as water and more than 96% of Na was removed as NaCl. There were almost no Li or Sr loss in this process. Li was concentrated from 60 ppm to 321 ppm.
5.    In the secondary evaporation process, 26% of the feed brine mass was evaporated as water and 12% of Ca was removed as CaCl2. The lithium recovery was 94.1% and the Sr recovery was 94.6%. The sample turned to a jel-like material after further evaporation to remove 40% of the brine mass as water.
6.    In the whole process, the estimated water evaporated was 72% of the total feed brine mass. More than 99.99% of Mg, 99% of Na, 45% of K and 25% of Ca were precipitated from the brine. The overall recovery was 83.7% for Li and 77.2% for Sr. Lithium was concentrated to 461 ppm from 71 ppm. However, the impurity level, especially Ca, was still very high and further removal of Ca through evaporation is not feasible.
SRC has provided the Company with several recommendations to remove Ca impurity levels. The full report will be filed on SEDAR within 45 days.

MGX may decide to advance its petrolithium projects into production without first establishing mineral resources supported by an independent technical report or completing a feasibility study. A production decision without the benefit of a technical report independently establishing mineral resources or reserves and any feasibility study demonstrating economic and technical viability creates increased uncertainty and heightens economic and technical risks of failure. Historically, such projects have a much higher risk of economic or technical failure.

MGX MINERALS ANNOUNCES UNITIZATION OF OIL AND GAS LEASES AND ADDITION OF 70,000 ACRES OVERLYING LITHIUM BRINE CLAIMS AT PARADOX BASIN UTAH

Mr. Jared Lazerson reports

MGX MINERALS ANNOUNCES UNITIZATION OF OIL AND GAS LEASES AND ADDITION OF 70,000 ACRES OVERLYING LITHIUM BRINE CLAIMS AT PARADOX BASIN UTAH

MGX Minerals Inc. has provided a project development update for its Paradox basin petrolithium project.

The company has begun unitization of designated oil and gas leases and the staking of overlying mineral claims located contiguous to its Lisbon Valley mineral claims. The purpose of the unitization is to eliminate property boundaries, pool mineral interests and establish the company’s private partner as unit operator. MGX now controls more than 94,000 acres of combined oil and gas leases and mineral claims in the state of Utah. MGX’s North American lithium brine claims now exceed 1.7 million acres.

MGX and its Utah-based partner have completed boundary surveying and issued mailers to parties within the unit. Additionally, the company has submitted a permit to drill along with a surface-use plan of operations to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). Previous geological and seismic information is now under review, and preparations have commenced to conduct a 3-D seismic shoot to understand both lithium- and oil-bearing structures.

Consolidation through unitization of the oil and gas leases represents the most efficient timelines and cost-effective means of developing the area’s underlying resources.

Engineering of oil, gas and lithium wells

MGX is currently in discussion with a U.S.-based engineering company for drilling and operation of multi-zone wells optimized for maximum flow of oil, gas, lithium and magnesium brine. MGX expects a project scoping study shortly.

Acquisition of additional minerals claims

As part of the acquisition of mineral claims overlying its recent oil and gas lease acquisition in the Paradox basin, 4,718 additional mineral claims were acquired. This expanded land position and adds 94,082 acres to the company’s Paradise basin petrolithium project, increasing MGX’s total cumulative minerals claims to approximately 118,000 acres, which now includes the majority of oil, gas and brine mineral rights within the area of interest.

Additionally, MGX has amended the previously announced payment schedule to acquire underlying oil and gas leases (see press release dated March 23, 2017 ). The amended payment schedule is as follows:

  • Non-refundable deposit of $50,000 (paid);
  • $500,000 on or before Sept. 1, 2017;
  • $500,000 on or before March 1, 2018;
  • $500,000 on or before Sept. 1, 2018;
  • $450,000 on or before March 1, 2019.

Overview MGX’s oil and gas leases

MGX’s oil and gas leases overlie a large area west of the Lisbon Valley oil field approximately 40 miles south of Moab, Utah, in the salt anticline belt on the southwest edge of the Paradox basin in San Juan county. Historical lithium brine content has been reported as high as 730 parts per million lithium (Superior Oil 88-21P) at Lisbon Valley. The region is also home to the former Rio Algom uranium mill facility, an active copper mine operated by Lisbon Valley Mining Company, and a natural gas processing plant.

Qualified person

The technical portions of this press release were prepared and reviewed by Andris Kikauka, PGeo, vice-president of exploration for MGX. Mr. Kikauka is a non-independent qualified person within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101 standards.

MGX is advancing its petrolithium projects into production without first establishing mineral resources supported by an independent technical report or completing a feasibility study. A production decision without the benefit of a technical report independently establishing mineral resources or reserves and any feasibility study demonstrating economic and technical viability creates increased uncertainty and heightens economic and technical risks of failure. Historically, such projects have a much higher risk of economic or technical failure.

MGX Minerals Acquires 110,000 Acres of Paradox Basin, Utah Oil and Gas Leases

MGX Minerals Acquires 110,000 Acres of Paradox Basin, Utah Oil and Gas Leases

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA / March 23, 2017 / MGX Minerals Inc. (“MGX” or the “Company”) (CSE: XMG / FKT: 1MG / OTC: MGXMF) is pleased to announce it has entered into a Joint Operating Agreement (the “Agreement”) with a private vendor to act as operator and acquire a 75% working interest in certain underlying Oil and Gas Leases (the “Leases”) located contiguous to the Company’s Lisbon Valley petrolithium project.

The Leases cover portions of San Juan County, Utah and San Miguel County, Colorado and will provide access to the brine-bearing aquifer systems within the Lisbon Valley area of the Paradox Basin. Preparations to permit the Petrolithium #1 borehole well will commence upon closing of the Agreement.

The Company plans to conduct well-sampling and collect seismic data to advance hydrogeological understanding within the Pennsylvanian-age Paradox Formation, which consists of a thick (>3,667 meters) evaporite sequence. The most active period of subsidence extended from mid-Pennsylvanian to Late Triassic time. Thick cyclic accumulations of salt were deposited early and influenced by irregular and episodic movements of the faults, resulting in salt redistribution and flexure of the overlying rock. As a result, there are a large number of identified clastic zones.

Agreement Terms
To earn a 75% working interest, MGX will make payments totaling US$2,000,000 on or before September 1, 2018. The Company can choose to accelerate payments and issue consideration totaling $1,700,000 on or before September 1, 2017, in which case the vendor will waive any additional payments due.

MGX has granted the vendor a Carry Period (“Carry Period”) in which MGX shall be responsible for 100% of all expenses incurred. The Carry Period shall be considered satisfied once MGX has made all required payments or drilled at least one well on the Leases on or before February 28, 2020. Upon satisfying these conditions MGX shall earn an undivided 75% working interest in the Leases and the vendor shall be responsible to contribute proportionate expenses equal to their interest in the Leases.

Overview of Lisbon Valley Oilfield
The oil and gas leases are proximate to the Company’s Lisbon Valley Lithium Project which overlies the Lisbon Valley oil and gas field located approximately 40 miles southeast of Moab, Utah in the salt anticline belt on the southwest edge of the Paradox Basin in San Juan county. Historic lithium brine content has been reported as high as 730 parts per million lithium (Superior Oil 88-21P) at Lisbon Valley. The region is home to the former Rio Algom uranium mill facility, an active copper mine operated by Lisbon Valley Mining Company, and a natural gas processing plant.

We Have Confused Shuffling Pieces of Paper With The Creation of Wealth

Full Article: We Have Confused Shuffling Pieces of Paper With The Creation of Wealth

By: Bob Moriarty

When Energy & Gold published our first interview with Bob Moriarty, founder & editor of 321gold, more than two years ago we didn’t realize it would become a regular thing that would happen every couple of months. However, these chats have become one of my favorites and something which I look forward to having periodically when it’s time to get caught up and update readers on Bob’s market and geopolitical thoughts. Bob has a practical wisdom and knowledge which comes from decades of experience both as an investor and as a human being who flew 832 missions as a marine pilot during the Vietnam War. Without further ado here is Energy & Gold’s March 2017 conversation with Bob Moriarty:

 

CEO Tech: What do you think about Northern Dynasty (NYSE: NAK, TSX:NDM) and some of the recent stuff which has been in the news involving short selling fund Kerrisdale Capital?

Bob Moriarty: Here’s the deal and I need to give your readers some background. I was the first writer to talk about Northern Dynasty back in 2003, I think the shares were $.50 or so and it was an extraordinary deal back then. Back in 2003 Pebble was a work in progress and since then there has been hundreds of millions of dollars invested in outlining the resource.

MGX Minerals North American Petro Lithium Mineral Claims top 1,500,000 acres (600,000 ha.) – New 350,000 acres (143,000 ha.) staked in Alberta and Utah

 

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA / March 1, 2017 / MGX Minerals Inc. (“MGX” or the “Company”) (CSE: XMG / FKT: 1MG / OTC: MGXMF) is pleased to announce recent staking activities to further expand its petro lithium land position in the Province of Alberta and State of Utah.

North American Lithium Portfolio
The Company has significantly expanded its Alberta petro lithium portfolio through the acquisition of additional Metallic and Industrial Mineral Permits (“Permits”) covering over 133,000 hectares. The new Permits are located within the Leduc (9,216 hectares), Swan Hills (110,592 hectares) and Nipisi (13,824 hectares) formations.

In total, MGX now holds Permits throughout the Province of Alberta totaling over 600,000 hectares. The Company also has exploration level agreements in place with major oil and gas companies throughout the Province to conduct well sampling.

At its Lisbon Valley Petro Lithium Project MGX has also acquired, through staking, an additional 301 mineral claims encompassing 6,020 acres within the Paradox basin of southeastern Utah. The new claims further increase the Company’s Lisbon Valley land package to 23,780 acres (see Figure 1). MGX also recently announced an earn-in agreement to explore 111 mineral claims in the Cane Creek area of the Paradox Basin (see press release dated February 22, 2017).

The Lisbon Valley oil and gas field is located approximately 40 miles southeast of Moab, Utah in the salt anticline belt on the southwest edge of the Paradox Basin in San Juan county. Historic lithium brine content has been reported as high as 730 parts per million lithium (Superior Oil 88-21P). The region is home to the former Rio Algom uranium mill facility, an active copper mine operated by Lisbon Valley Mining Company, and a natural gas processing plant.

Why You Should Care About The Debt Ceiling

Full Article: Why You Should Care About The Debt Ceiling

By: Kira Brecht

Brace yourself, the “debt ceiling” is back in the news. The nation’s current spending limit at $20.1 trillion is set to expire on March 15, unless Congress authorizes to expand it.

Why should gold investors care about the debt ceiling?

Remember 2011?

It was the dramatic debt ceiling standoff in 2011 that helped propel gold prices to their all-time high above $1,900 per ounce. In August 2011 that Standard & Poor’s rocked the world markets with a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating. The downgrade came in the wake of the Congressional battle over the debt ceiling, which took the country to the brink of default on its debt obligations. The historic move dealt a sharp blow to the United States’ status as an economic superpower.

A quick recap on the debt ceiling: The U.S. Constitution gave Congress the “power of the purse strings,” or the ability to control spending and borrowing. Congress is required by federal law to authorize the government to borrow funds needed to pay for current spending outlays, which currently stands at $20.1 trillion. It is noteworthy – that the debt ceiling increase is not for new spending – but for obligations already promised by the government.
