Snow Lake Resources is a private lithium development company that is seeking to move its Thompson Bothers spodumene project into near-term and low-capex production. The Thompson Brothers deposit is located in Snow Lake in Manitoba, Canada. The project has a Historic JORC compliant mineral resource estimate of 6.3mt at a high lithium grade of 1.38% Li2O. The company has recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Tanco that could see the project fast-tracked using Tanco’s spodumene flotation circuit, also located in Manitoba, Canada. Snow Lake is currently in the process of listing on the Canadian Stock Exchange.

This week’s column cobbles together a raft of local mining announcements, which have accumulated over the last month or so.

Firstly, earlier in July, BacTech Resources announced that the company had signed a letter of intent with GMR Inc. to license BacTech’s proprietary bioleach technology as part of an effort to develop a viable metallurgical solution to process a government owned stockpile of a-bearing material at Snow Lake. The company further announced that it would collaborate with Dundee Sustainable Technologies (DST) as a technology partner in developing a potential solution for problems encountered in their December 2011 proposal to remediate the stockpile.

Those problems were: a dramatic drop in the price of gold at the time, prohibitive costs in bring the iron to arsenic ratio to a proper processing level, limestone suitable to be used in the process wasn’t available in the quantity required locally.

“Our return to Snow Lake is predicated on Dundee Sustainable Technologies providing a solution to the unstable arsenic product we generated in our earlier work that killed the project,” said Ross Orr, CEO of BacTech. “The stockpile has a deficiency in iron, leading an unstable ferric arsenate product after bioleaching. By passing this unstable material to be vitrified the arsenic can be safely disposed. We look forward to re-engaging in the Snow Lake project.”

The second announcement came from Rockcliff Metals Corporation and is very good news indeed. On Aug. 1 Rockcliff announced that a 100,000 metre drill program will commence in August and continue non-stop to December of 2020.

“We look forward to the start of the largest drill program in Rockcliff’s history,” said Rockcliff’s President and CEO Alistair Ross.  “The objectives of this very large drill program are to expand existing resources at several of our deposits, assist in advancing several of our key projects through the pre-feasibility phase, as well as to explore for significant new grass roots discoveries on our very prospective land position. The success of the drill program will be an integral part of Rockcliff’s growth strategy as we work to transition the company into Manitoba’s next mining company.”

Initial drilling will commence on the Company’s Rail and Bur properties, followed by drilling on its Talbot and Tower properties located south of Snow Lake. A minimum of five drills will be deployed in August to carry out this phase of the drill program. This phase of the drill program will total approximately 50,000 metres and is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2019.  Between the start of drilling next month and the end of 2020, drilling is also planned on numerous grass roots targets and at least eight other properties currently held by the Company that are known to host VMS mineralization.

CYR Drilling International Ltd. from Winnipeg, Manitoba and Westcore Drilling Limited from Snow Lake, Manitoba were awarded drilling contracts by the Company.

Also on Aug.1, but with news of an unfavourable variety, Hudbay Minerals Inc. announced that the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona issued a ruling in the lawsuits challenging the U.S. Forest Service’s issuance of the Final Record of Decision (FROD) for the company’s Rosemont project in Arizona.

The Court ruled to vacate and remand the FROD such that Rosemont cannot proceed with construction at this time. The company believes that the Court misinterpreted federal mining laws and Forest Service regulations as they apply to Rosemont and will appeal the Court’s decision to the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

“We are extremely disappointed with the Court’s decision,” said Peter Kukielski, Interim President and Chief Executive Officer. “We strongly believe that the project conforms to federal laws and regulations that have been in place for decades. We will be appealing the decision as we evaluate next steps for the Rosemont Project.”

Finally, Snow Lake Resources has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Tanco Mining Corporation of Canada to fast track their Thompson Brothers Lithium Project.

Under this MOU, Tanco Mining and Snow Lake Resources will work collaboratively to explore all possible collaborations, with the view of delivering economic benefits to both parties. The agreement identifies a range of initiatives that may be pursued, including investigating processing of the Thompson Brothers material utilizing the Tanco infrastructure and Tanco supporting financing options for project infrastructure. In addition, other means will be investigated to maximize local employment with added economic benefits for the Town of Snow Lake, Winnipeg and environs, which headquarter each operation.

SNOW LAKE RESOURCES LTD. (“Snow Lake”, “SNOW” or the “Company”) are pleased to announce it has reached a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Tanco Mining Corporation of Canada Limited (Tanco) to work collaboratively between the Tanco Mine and the Thompson Brothers Lithium Project. The Tanco Mine is now operated by Tanco Mining Corporation of Canada Limited. and was previously North America’s largest and sole producer of Spodumene, Tantalum and Cesium on the north west shore of Bernic Lake, Manitoba, Canada. The mine has the largest known deposit of pollucite, is also the world’s largest current producer of caesium.

Under this MOU, Tanco and Snow Lake will work collaboratively to explore all possible synergies with the view of deliver economic benefits to both parties. The agreement identifies a range of initiatives that may be pursued including investigating processing of the Thompson Brothers material utilizing the Tanco infrastructure and Tanco supporting financing options for project infrastructure. In addition, other means will be investigated to maximize local employment with added economic benefits for the Town of Snow Lake, Winnipeg and surrounds, which headquarter each operation.

This MOU now outlines and demonstrates our fast track development strategy and signifies a low capex, clear strategy and pathway to production and cash flow for Snow Lake.

In light of this significant development within the company which gives us a clear path to production, the company will be in discussions with various investment bankers and brokers to reprice the listing and raise further strategic funds in the interim to fast track development and the opportunity at hand, which may delay the listing by a few weeks on the CSE.

Under the MOU Snow Lake and Tanco will now engage in further discussions with an aim to formalise an investment and operational strategy that will allow for the “fast track” development of the Thompson Brothers Lithium Project.

  2. Facilitate strategies to maximize the local economic benefit and job opportunities as a result of responsible development of the Snow Lake and Winnipeg;
  3. Provide access to Tanco with regard to baseline economic scoping works for the Thompson Brothers Lithium Project for the purpose of assessing the suitability of potential synergies between Tanco and Snow Lake.
  4. Establish the groundwork to develop a plan for data sharing with Tanco and Snow Lake personnel working collaboratively.
  5. Provide a framework for Tanco and Snow Lake to cooperatively engage with local communities and other project stakeholders to incorporate their input via public meetings and consultations.
  6. Identify areas requiring federal, state and local permitting, and facilitate support for obtaining such permits if required.
  7. Work collaboratively to establish an agreement for the Snow Lake’s usage of Tanco Mine spodumene floatation circuit.
  8. Investigate Tanco-supported financing or off take options whilst establishing a fair pricing mechanism of providing a Direct Shipping Ore (“DSO”) to the Tanco Mine spodumene floatation circuit.
  9. Establish an estimated range of DSO Spodumene grade delivery to the Tanco Mine spodumene floatation circuit.
  10. Determine other means to maximize local employment and other economic benefits.

The MOU will expire on the third anniversary of the effective date unless otherwise extended by written agreement between the parties. Either party may terminate the MOU earlier for any reason at any time upon delivery to the other party of written notice of termination.
