Transition (V.XTM) CEO Scott McLean is very clear about the difference between a project generator and a junior explorer, “The big difference is that a traditional junior will raise money by diluting the shareholder’s equity to fund the advancement of one or two projects. Under the project generator business model, the Company holds multiple projects and the exploration is funded by a partner in return for a stake in a specific project. This model allows projects to be funded with minimal shareholder equity dilution. The approach leverages the investor’s exposure to the upside that can come from discovery in a manner that insulates the downside that can come from excessive shareholder dilution if results prove unfavourable”

Lesley Stokes at the Northern Miner is the rare combination of a geologist and a journalist. She understands what professional geologists like Victoria Gold’s VP Exploration, Paul Gray is talking about when he describes the Eagle discovery as “geologically boring, but mineralogically consistent,”. It is that consistency which drives VIT’s mine construction and the exploration efforts designed to extend the projected life of mine.
Peer recognition is important in an industry like mineral exploration. All too often only a small section of the investing public is paying attention to a particular company. Significant discoveries, particularly when they are not about gold, can be neglected. The PDAC awards look beyond the headlines.
Arizona Mining Inc. (TSX:AZ) (“Arizona Mining” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has been selected by the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada to receive the 2018 Thayer Lindsley Award for the discovery of its Taylor zinc-lead-silver deposit at the Hermosa project in Arizona.
Argentina Lithium & Energy Corp. (TSX-V:LIT) (FSE:OAY1) (WKN:A0RK7E) (OTC:PNXLF) (“Argentina Lithium” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the first two drill holes at the Arizaro project have encountered lithium-bearing brines below surface in the central area of the salar with values as high as 257 mg/l lithium. A substantial brine aquifer has not yet been reached but modest volumes of significantly anomalous lithium-bearing brines were retrieved starting at depths of between 15 and 356 metres. The depth of drilling was limited by the drill equipment used, therefore the Company plans to continue drilling in these areas using suitable deeper-drilling equipment, following more detailed geophysical and seismic surveys of the Arizaro basin.
