BMG Enters Joint Venture for Chilean Lithium Projects

In an effort to explore and possibly develop three projects in the lithium triangle, BMG Resources is forming a joint venture with the owners of Lithium Chile.

BMG Resources (ASX:BMG) has entered into a binding agreement with the owners of Lithium Chile to explore and develop three potential lithium brine projects in Chile through a joint venture.

The three projects are located in the lithium triangle, an area in the Andes that encompasses parts of Northern Chile, Southwest Bolivia and Northwest Argentina. This area hosts over 50 percent of the world’s lithium resources, along with the largest and highest-grade lithium brine deposits in the world.

The three projects — Salar West, Pajonales and Natalie — span over 12,000 hectares, and Salar West will be the first priority in the companies’ exploration timeline. The goal of the joint venture over the next year is to complete initial drill programs and to establish JORC-compliant resources in the project areas.

As part of the joint venture’s initial consideration, BMG will pay Lithium Chile US$800,000; US$100,000 is to be paid within five days of the signing of a term sheet, followed by US$500,000 in cash and US$200,000 in shares after the transaction’s completion.

Lithium Chile will own “all right, title and interest” to the lithium properties, though BMG will acquire an initial 20-percent interest in Lithium Chile through the joint venture.

BMG will also provide up to US$2.5 million in funding and US$300,000 in shares to Lithium Chile for an additional 30-percent interest in the JV, making its total stake 50 percent.

In a statement, BMG Managing Director Bruce McCracken shared his excitement about the joint venture.

“BMG is excited to be partnering with [Lithium Chile] in the best Lithium province in the world,” he said. “The fundamentals for the lithium sector remain very positive with strong demand growth from battery requirements for electric vehicles, and there is no better entry point than the world’s highest grade, lowest cost brine deposits in Northern Chile.”

He added, “[w]e are working to fast track the establishment of the [joint venture] and progress the work program as quickly as possible.”

When Will Australia Legalise Recreational Cannabis?

Recreational cannabis remains illegal in all Australia’s states and territories with the exception of the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). But could that change in the future?

So far there are no clear indicators as to when or if Australia could legalise recreational cannabis, but attitudes seem to be changing. Public support is growing, and there’s even some political acceptance.

Read on to learn more about when Australia may legalise recreational cannabis.

Data Review Enhances Prospectivity at Galan’s Greenbushes South Lithium Project

Highlights:

  • CSIRO’s historical datasets show prospectivity for Galan’s Greenbushes South Lithium Project
  • Historical laterite geochemistry data collected prior to mining at Greenbushes
  • Elevated abundances of pathfinder elements display a well-defined anomaly adjacent to Greenbushes South
  • Dispersion of elements into the laterite profiles include arsenic, tantalum, tin and antimony among others
  • Galan to commence sampling and mapping at Greenbushes South next month

Galan Lithium Limited (ASX: GLN) (Galan or the Company) is pleased to announce that it has completed a review of historical CSIRO data which enhances the prospectivity of its Greenbushes South Lithium project.

AIS Resources’ Australian Yalgogrin Gold Project’s first drill hole returns gold intercepts averaging 1.5g/t over 87 meters including 0.9 meters at 9.3 g/t

A.I.S. Resources Limited ( TSX: AIS, OTCQB: AISSF ) (the “Company” or “AIS) reports that the assay analysis from YDD1 at Neighbour’s Farm historic mine workings, the first diamond drill hole at its Yalgogrin Gold Project, NSW, Australia has been completed by SGS Australia. Extensive gold mineralisation was intersected from 58m through to the end of hole at 162.3m with gold mineralisation remaining open at depth and returning gold Intercepts over 87m averaging 1.5gt. The best individual grades returned up to 9.3 gt Au that are supported by consistent mineralisation hosted within the altered rock mass.

A summary of the intervals and average assays is set out below from the top of the core:

Resolution Minerals Ltd Drilling Program at Sunrise Gold Prospect Completed

Adelaide, Australia (ABN Newswire) – Resolution Minerals Ltd (ASX:RML) (FRA:NC3) is pleased to announce that it has completed the Company’s first drilling program on the Sunrise Gold Prospect at the 64North Project in Alaska. Drilling was conducted along an existing access road, targeting outcropping granite hosted mineralisation, analogous in style to Kinross’s Fort Knox Gold Mine, which is one of Alaska’s most profitable mines. The Sunrise Prospect was identified in 2020 by a RML trenching program and is located less than 5km from Northern Star’s operating Pogo Gold Mine.

Summary

– A 1400m long “fence line” of 27 shallow RAB drill holes designed to test outcropping mineralisation at the Sunrise Prospect has been completed.
