Bacanora Minerals Releases Drill Results for Buenavista

Wednesday January 14, 2015, 1:37pm PST

(TSXV:BCN) announced drill results from 24 drill holes completed at the southern half of the Beunavista concession, part of the Sonora Lithium project in Mexico.

As quoted in the press release, drilling highlights included:

•three kilometres of strike length of the lithium-bearing clays on the southern half of the concession were tested. The three kilometres on the northern half of the concession, as well as portions of the strata that continue onto the adjoining Megalit concession, remain untested;

•significant lithium values (i.e. greater than 1,000 ppm Li) were found in 13 of the 24 holes;

•of those 13 holes, 11 reported significant thicknesses and grades of lithium-bearing clays, as tabulated below;

•lithium values of individual 1.0 metre samples, within the significant intervals, range from 336 to 2,210 ppm Li; and

•the lithium-bearing clays crop out at surface and dip gently to the east, providing a target for potential low strip ratio, open pit mining of the clays.

Bacanora Chairman, Colin Orr-Ewing, said:

“These results have confirmed that significant thicknesses and grades of lithium-bearing clays occur within the southern part of Buenavista. The northern half of the concession remains untested and it is our belief that it holds potential for similar lithium mineralization. Considering the relatively low overburden and that the deposit is at surface, if commercialized, this concession could present a low cost mining operation.”

Quantum Dots at CES? That’s Us!

Posted by Nanoco | On January 7th, 2015 | in Our Business

Talk about starting the year with the bang. This week, quantum dots found their way into the mainstream narrative with a big development –the first quantum dot displays from LG debuted at the CES 2015. These beautiful, new, quantum dot screens are powered by Nanoco’s science and technology, more than a decade in the making.

The LG endorsement is a big one for our technology. We’re confident that our cadmium-free quantum dots are setting a new standard in the display industry due to the exceptional color reproduction and the environmental benefits they offer. We remain the only company in the world to offer the cadmium-free version of the technology at scale. We have our exclusive licensing partner, The Dow Chemical Company, to thank for helping to accelerate their commercialization.

And our excitement doesn’t end with the display market. Last month, industry analysts predicted a very bright future for quantum dot technology and its many applications, with Nanomarkets naming 2014 the “breakout year for QDs,” as well as citing its expectation that the market for quantum dots will grow to $5.5 billion in revenues in 2020. You can read the press release summarizing those figures – and more –here.

The new innovations made possible through cadmium-free quantum dots means we’ll soon be saying good-bye to the old ways of doing things. In display, standard LCDs will soon be a thing of the past, gone the way of the cathode-ray tube or rear projection. In their place will be LCDs enhanced with cadmium-free quantum dots, which not only enable lifelike color and brightness, but allow for such advancements without the risk of toxicity. In lighting, today’s already remarkable LED will soon be able to mimic the color performance of an incandescent light source. And, in medicine, short-lived bio-imaging dyes will give way to longer “fluorescing” via cadmium-free quantum dots, enabling – among other things – surgeons to better remove malignant cancer cells.

For Nanoco and its employees, the vision for our quantum dot technology is fast becoming reality. We look forward with great confidence to the year ahead

Nanoco wrongly savaged

The market turned vicious over cadmium-free quantum dots technology developer Nanoco (NANO:AIM) today, slashing the share price by more than 16% to 115p. Investor jaws might well drop. There’s no profit warning or negative newsflow, what appears to be at the heart of this sudden sell-off is the unveiling of a new range of LCD monitors and TVs that use rival technology.

Philips (PHG:AS) and AOC, two of the world’s biggest monitor makers, have used the quantum dot technology of US rival QD Vision in their new 27 inch high-performance LCD monitors, launched at the consumer electronics show (CES) in Las Vegas. Chinese TV maker TCL Multimedia has also launched a 55 inch 4K UHD TV. Frankly, big whop.


Considering that CES only opened its doors to the public today (yesterday was a press-exclusive preview), there’s going to be a deluge of new display technology flooding the stands at CES this week, much of which won’t feature quantum dot technology at all.

Yet Nanoco’s tech will get its fair share of fanfare at CES thanks to its agreement with electronics giant LG. The Korean manufacturer has already confirmed that its entire range of 4K ULTRA HD TV line-up in 2015 will include Nanoco’s cadmium-free technology, under the LG banner ‘ColorPrime’ (see image below). Which makes today’s savage market reaction puzzling.


One explanation might be market rather than product related since long-term major Nanoco shareholder Henderson Global Investors has been flogging shares. A little more than 1.1 million over the past couple of days taking its stake to a fraction below 16%. Yet these sales represent barely 0.5% of the 214 million shares in issue, so again, big whop.

True, Nanoco has a lot of work ahead. Operating losses last year to end July totted up to £9.2 million, chewing trough £6.6 million of cash. But this is early stage stuff and the company is rapidly closing in on meaningful revenues that will produce profits thanks to large-scale quantum dot production during the first half of this year thanks to Nanoco’s deal with Dow Chemical (DOW:NYSE). That should kick start a rapid revenue stream build over the coming few years, from the $1.4 million last year to an estimated $31.6 million in a little over two years, implying $more than $18 million of pre-tax profit.

LONDON (Alliance News) - Leni Gas & Oil PLC Monday said it has intersected its largest net oil pay to date at the Goudron field in Trinidad after successfully drilling its sixth well at the site.

The GY-669 well is the sixth well to be completed in a 30 well development programme and has been drilled to a measured depth of 2,390 feet, intersecting 227 feet of net oil pay in the Goudron Sandstones, it said in a statement.

An oil pay is a reservoir or portion of a reservoir formation that contains economically producible hydrocarbons. GY-669 has encountered the largest net oil pay to date from the six wells that have been drilled, with the second largest measuring 195 feet of net oil pay from the GY-665 well completed in June.

The company has continued drilling to reach its original target at GY-669, the Gros Morne Sandstone oil target, which Leni believes is approximately 2,500 feet deep, it added.

"The Goudron Sand has come in on prognosis and is oil bearing as in all previous wells... Well GY-669 has a planned total depth of 3,926 feet... Once the total depth is reached the well will be logged and cased ready for completion as a production well," said Chief Executive Neil Ritson.
