International Lithium CEO on reporting a 60% recovery rate

International Lithium –Kirill Klip, CEO, President and Chairman of International Lithium Corp. (TSXV: ILC) (“International Lithium”) in an interview with InvestorIntel CEO Tracy Weslosky discuss International Lithium’s Mariana lithium brine project, located in Argentina. Kirill states the Mariana lithium brine project is reporting a 60% recovery rate, with results showing “a very impressive 1.25 million tons of lithium carbonate and a whole exploration target of up to 4 million tons.” Kirill also comments on International Lithium’s recently appointment new deputy chairman, John Wisbey, who started as a shareholder with the company.

Tracy Weslosky: I’m excited about the quarterly results from Tesla. It appears they weren’t able to produce as many cars as they had anticipated due to the shortage of battery grade materials. Can you talk to us about this, as you are a source for battery grade materials?

Kirill Klip: Yes, they produced a little bit shorter than expected, but don’t forget that they will be ramping up production of Tesla Model 3. I understood they had a particular problem with the lithium battery specs for Tesla Model S 100g.

Tracy Weslosky: I was reading an article about the Tesla 3 and read that you are reporting a 60% recovery rate at your Argentina lithium project. Can you tell us a little bit more about what that 60% recovery rate means?



International Lithium

Kirill Klip: It means that we took very conservative rate of recovery… our results came out as a very impressive 1.25 million tons of lithium carbonate and the whole exploration target is up to 4 million tons. It means that we have very conservative approach… so if Tesla tomorrow would like to partner up with International Lithium, they just have to call us.

Tracy Weslosky: Something that is impressive to me and our InvestorIntel audience, are the jockeys, the management of the team. This actually gets us more interested in a company. You just appointed a very impressive Deputy Chairman with international caliber business experience. Tell us a little bit more about John’s background.

Kirill Klip: John Wisbey is a very great addition to our team. He joined us last January. He is a very avid businessman with very deep international practice particularly in banking. He is very well known in London and Sydney. It can be another very, very important situation for us here in London when all our famous black cabs will become electric by the end of this year. He is a great addition to our team. He spent a few years in Hong Kong, knows very good banking in Asia. You can check inside us, he is constantly buying shares in our company and (inaudible) just participated in another substantial raise in the company.

How Sears CEO Lampert cashes in as stores cash out

BUZ INVESTORS  Sears CEO Lampert Eddie Lampert, the press-shy CEO, chairman and largest shareholder of Sears Holdings, may be all that's standing between the beleaguered department store chain and bankruptcy.

BUZ INVESTORS  Sears CEO Lampert Eddie Lampert, the press-shy CEO, chairman and largest shareholder of Sears Holdings, may be all that’s standing between the beleaguered department store chain and bankruptcy.

The conventional wisdom is that Lampert will suffer massive losses if Sears perishes, since he has pumped hundreds of millions from his personal fortune into the company. And while there’s no question he has a lot at stake, a closer look suggests that the billionaire investor has shielded some of his investment from annihilation in the event of Sears’ demise.

Through a series of transactions over the last several years, Lampert has extracted significant value from Sears and may secure additional assets if the company goes belly up, according to public filings and interviews.

Sears, which operates both the Sears and Kmart chains, is teetering, having failed to reinvent itself under Lampert’s leadership in the digital age. After a recent $900 million sale of its Craftsman brand, store closures and other cost cuts, Sears warned late Tuesday that there’s “substantial doubt” that it will survive.

Lampert owns about 48% of Sears stock, according to the company’s annual report, including holdings through his hedge fund, ESL Investments. Besides his stock, Lampert holds about $381 million in unsecured notes issued to Sears. Those holdings could be obliterated in bankruptcy.



Sears CEO Lampert

>>>trade now<<<

Edward Lampert (Trades, Portfolio) (Insider Trades), CEO and 10% owner of Sears Holdings Corp. (SHLD), acquired 525,936 shares on March 24. The average price per share was $7.93 for a total transaction of $4,170,672.

 

Sears Holdings focuses on connecting digital and physical shopping experiences such as the Shop Your Way ® platform that offers Sears and Kmart customers a social shopping experience as well as member-only rewards. The company has a market cap of $1.01 billion.

Talga CEO on Chemetall Deal and Becoming a Commercialized Graphene Player

Talga CEO on Chemetall Deal and Becoming a Commercialized Graphene Player

 

BUZ INVESTORS Chemetall Deal  Mark Thompson, Managing Director of Talga Resources Ltd (ASX: TLG), in an interview with InvestorIntel’s CEO Tracy Weslosky discuss their joint development agreement (JDA) with Chemetall, part of BASF, and their new, “mega [cobalt] project.” The deal with Chemetall will commercialize graphene and will position them in the $10 billion a year metal protective treatments sector. Talga signed another JDA with Zinergy, a UK-based flexible battery company earlier this year. Moreover, they picked up pristine cobalt assets in Kiskama, Sweden in 2012. They confirmed the sensational results of historical drill cores and will have assaying results to appraise the entire property. Talga has another cobalt rich project to the southeast: the Lautakoski iron oxide copper gold (IOCG) deposit. Mark will explore the dynamic cleantech applications for the graphene market at the Cleantech and Technology Metals Summit on May 15 and 16.

Chemetall Deal

Tracy Weslosky: Allow me to start by congratulating you on your announcement with Chemetall. I understand your stock is moving rapidly on the news. Can you give us some highlights please?

Mark Thompson: Chemetall is a subsidiary of BASF, which is one of the world’s tier one global coatings and chemical giants. This is a very significant group to allow essentially us to go public with a relationship with them and what follows quite along, a sampling regime. We’re commercializing some products. We have a product development deal with them that seems to be the last building block in people’s minds about the commercial ability of graphene.

Tracy Weslosky: Let’s take that a step further. I actually read that you’re looking at having revenue by Q2 of this year. Is that correct, and can you tell us just a little bit more about that?

Mark Thompson: Even though it’s a sample development or I should say a product development agreement, Chemetall have agreed to buy the material from that program. This will provide income to Talga – obviously very small at first and then hopefully growing throughout the length of the agreement. Then there will be a separate discussion about commercializing that material, but still significant in that, it’s quite an evolution from just providing raw materials. This is actually more of a value added situation.

Tracy Weslosky: It is value added. Of course, this helps with corrosion. Can you give us an overview about how significant this graphene commercialization process is?

Mark Thompson: First of all, what we like about graphene and coatings is it has a massive improvement in performance. Particularly with anti-corrosion, graphene can outperform currently used materials, like chrome, that are used in these coatings now. The ultra-thin and impermeable nature of graphene, plus its electrical conductivity allows it to outperform a lot of other materials. You get a really big bang for your buck by putting graphene into your coating. You get a lot of leverage from that because you also need a very small amount of graphene in that coating

BUZ INVESTORS new BlackBerry tablet Remember the ill-fated BlackBerry Playbook? Released six years ago, on April 19, 2011, the tablet looked for a moment like it might catch on.

“Forget the Amazon Kindle Fire, the BB PlayBook is now the best low cost tablet,” raved ZDNet’s Matthew Miller at the time.

But the PlayBook, like many BlackBerry devices released since the iPhone and iPad, ended up going precisely nowhere. By 2013, BlackBerry had shipped more than two-million of the postcard-sized devices, but most of those were at a vastly reduced price. The PlayBook was assigned to the “rock bottom remainders” section of history.

new BlackBerry tablet

But now, according to the Canadian Press’s Aleksandra Sagan, BlackBerry is talking about reviving the tablet. Well, to be clear, the ever pragmatic John Chen is talking about licensing out BlackBerry’s name for someone else to make a tablet. It may seem a small difference to the consumer, but for BlackBerry it’s worlds apart from a time when it manufactured its own devices in Canada. The recently released KEYone, an Android-based phone with a physical keyboard, might not have made much of a splash, but having been manufactured and promoted by China’s TCL, it hardly mattered to BlackBerry’s bottom line.

For the first time in a long time, BlackBerry appears to have at least a little momentum. That comes courtesy a fourth quarter that bested expectations when reported yesterday, a result that lent credibility to Chen’s long-term plan to transform BlackBerry from a company that sells increasingly low-margin hardware to one that sells more profitable software and services.

“Alberta’s homebuilders are increasingly focused on providing customers with energy-efficient homes as homeowners look for ways to keep their operating costs low. Having a dedicated energy efficiency agency located in Calgary will help promote the benefits of energy efficiency across the province and make homeowners more aware of the straightforward ways they can save money on an ongoing basis.”

CME CEO on using quartz to rock the global silicon market

Buz Investors global silicon market  — Hubert Vallée, President, CEO and Director of Canadian Metals Inc. (CSE: CME) in an interview with InvestorIntel’s CEO Tracy Weslosky discuss the company’s leadership structure and the progress of their upcoming, fully integrated quartz project. The company promoted Hubert to CEO in December, as well as bringing in Guy Simard to sit on the board as an advisor, all while working towards an operational and independent quartz project. The goal of the project based in Baie-Comeau, Québec is to supply an expanding global silicon market (Vallée speculates 50% over the next 10 years) with a self-reliant product and process. The geography of Baie-Comeau lends itself to the fully-integrated picture by being situated right on the shore of the St. Lawrence River, allowing for easy access to the rest of Canada and the rest of the world. Looking to have a pre-feasibility study no later than Q1 of 2018, the company is in conversation with potential off take agreement partners.
