Amerigo Reports Q2-2018 Financial Results

• Cash of $6.4 million generated from operations
• Net income of $2.7 million
• Phase Two expansion commencing production in Q3-2018

Vancouver, British Columbia – July 31, 2018/CNW/ – Amerigo Resources Ltd. ("Amerigo" or the "Company") (TSX: ARG) announced today financial results for Q2-2018.

Rob Henderson, Amerigo’s President and CEO, stated “The strong financial performance achieved this quarter will bolster our efforts in executing the MVC expansion project. Commissioning of the new plant has started and MVC is on track for delivering a Q4-2018 production rate of 85 – 90 million pounds of copper per year at a cash cost of $1.45/lb.”

Amounts in this news release are reported in U.S. dollars except where indicated otherwise.

Amerigo’s financial performance was strong in Q2-2018

• Net income was $2.7 million (Q2-2017: net loss of $1.7 million).

• Earnings per share were $0.02 (Q2-2017: loss per share of $0.01).

• Cash flow generated from operations before changes in non-cash working capital was $6.4 million (Q2-2017: $4.5 million).

MVC’s average copper price in Q2-2018 was $3.16/lb

• MVC’s copper price was $3.16 per pound (“/lb”) (Q2-2017: $2.59/lb) and MVC’s molybdenum price was $11.51/lb (Q2-2017: $8.00/lb).

• Revenue was $33.0 million (Q2-2017: $29.9 million), including copper revenue of $29.2 million (Q2-2017: $25.5 million) and molybdenum and other revenue of $3.8 million (Q2-2017: $4.4 million).

• Copper revenue is calculated from MVC’s gross value of copper produced of $45.0 million (Q2-2017: $39.3 million) less notional items including DET royalties of $10.6 million (Q2-2017: $7.9 million), smelting and refining of $4.7 million (Q2-2017: $5.4 million) and transportation of $0.5 million (Q2-2017: $0.5 million).

• Amerigo remains fully leveraged to the price of copper.

• The provisional copper price used by MVC for Q2-2018 production was $3.16/lb. Final prices will be the average London Metal Exchange prices for July, August and September 2018 respectively. Financial performance is very sensitive to changes in copper prices. A 10% increase or decrease from the $3.16/lb price would result in a $4.9 million change in revenue in Q3-2018 in respect of Q2-2018 production.

Production and cash cost for Q2-2018 continued to be in line with guidance

• Q2-2018 production was 14.7 million pounds of copper (Q2-2017: 16.3 million pounds) and included 9.2 million pounds from Cauquenes (Q2-2017: 10.3 million pounds) and 5.5 million pounds from fresh tailings (Q2-2017: 5.4 million pounds).

• Molybdenum production was 0.4 million pounds, the same as in Q2-2017.

• Cash cost (a non-GAAP measure equal to the aggregate of smelting and refining charges, tolling/production costs net of inventory adjustments and administration costs, net of by-product credits.) before DET notional copper royalties and DET molybdenum royalties increased to $1.71/lb (Q2-2017: $1.53/lb) due to higher tolling and production costs.

• Total cost (a non-GAAP measure equal to the aggregate of cash cost, DET notional copper royalties and DET molybdenum royalties of $0.79/lb and depreciation of $0.25/lb) increased to $2.74/lb (Q2-2017: $2.28/lb), due to higher DET notional royalties from higher metal prices.

Amerigo expects strong production in the second half of the year once Phase Two is operational

• At June 30, 2018, the Cauquenes Phase Two expansion project was on time and on budget. Phase Two will improve flotation recovery efficiency, allowing MVC to increase production to 85 – 90 million pounds of copper per year, compared to 62.5 million pounds produced in 2017.

• MVC anticipates production of the first concentrates from the Phase Two expansion in Q3-2018 and expects full production to commence in Q4-2018.

• The Group continues to expect 2018 production of 65 – 70 million pounds of copper at a cash cost of $1.45 to $1.60/lb. In 2018, the Group also expects to produce 1.5 million pounds of molybdenum.

• In 2018, MVC expects to incur $23.5 million in Phase Two capital expenditures (“Capex”), $5.5 million in sustaining Capex, an additional $1.5 million in Capex projects to improve safety and process efficiencies and a $8.4 million expansion of its molybdenum plant, financed by way of a seven-year lease and operating contract.

Cash balance at quarter end was $ 21.4 million after $11.4 million in debt repayments YTD-2018

• At June 30, 2018, the Group’s cash balance was $21.4 million.

• Borrowings were $65.6 million after Phase Two loan draws of $8.8 million and repayments of $8.4 million in the quarter.

• The Group had a working capital deficiency of $9.7 million, caused by scheduled bank debt repayments in the following twelve months ($15.2 million) and the expected repayment of the balance of the DET Price Support Facility in Q3-2018 ($3.2 million).

• The Group does not consider its working capital deficiency constitutes a liquidity risk, as it anticipates generating sufficient operating cash flow to meet current liabilities as they come due, including if copper prices were to remain in the short-term at current levels ($2.75/lb). Working capital deficiencies are not uncommon in companies with short-term debt.

• In H2-2018, MVC expects to draw the remaining $8.7 million available from the Phase Two expansion loan and make debt repayments of $8.4 million. Total borrowings at year end are expected to be $67.5 million.

• At June 30, 2018, the Group had $21.7 million of undrawn, committed credit facilities, $13.0 million from a standby line of credit and $8.7 million from the Phase Two expansion loan.

Konstantin Balakiryan: To Combat Forest Fires in California, New Tools and Methods Are Needed

We must bring to the fight against wildfires the latest achievements of science and technology.

PHOENIX, ARIZONA, USA, July 30, 2018 / — Konstantin Balakiryan: To Combat Forest Fires In
California, New Tools and Methods Are Needed

For many years it has been possible for us to recognize that California is at war with nature. Yes, this is much like being in a real war, where distraught people and endangered animals have had to flee from wildfires, their burning houses, and buildings. These fires can consume all that was acquired by the labor of several generations and more disheartening, claiming many precious lives.
What can we say to the mother of two innocent children who were just a week ago happy that they live in the most beautiful country, as they and their great-grandmother could not be protected from the raging fire?
It is almost impossible to throw firefighters into such a battle and expect desired results when they practically have nothing to oppose such large-scale aggressive fires. It's time to understand that firefighters are not "cannon fodder", that their tremendous heroism and risking death, could be the result of someone's inactivity, stupidity, and even criminal negligence.
Scientists involved in environmental problems say that over the past 20 years the number of such disasters has increased 4 times! Apparently, the growth trend of wildfires will continue. This means that California, as well as other US states, are threatened with even more frequent and more powerful wildfires.
Maybe it's time to remember our constitution:
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
It is a shame to admit that so often forest fires deprive us of ensuring “domestic Tranquility”, demonstrating the helplessness of providing “the common defense”, promoting “the general Welfare”, and deprive us of securing “the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity”.
These forest fires are a very serious challenge to our People.
Now is the time, we must bring to the fight against this threat, the latest achievements of science to modernize our means of firefighting. Considering advances in nanotechnology, controlled explosions, and hydrogen capsules, allowing first to localize the fires, and then completely destroy them.
It was about these hydrogen capsules that the world press wrote, "Mankind has never before possessed such a powerful means for forest fire extinguishing"
The fight against forest fires can be characterized by the words of the Roman historian Cornelius Nepos, (1st century BC) “If you want peace, prepare for war.”

Idencia Launches International Reseller Program

idencia logo

Partners can offer 'smart products' under their own brand by reselling the Idencia information tracking service.

We want to provide our partners with every opportunity to clearly differentiate themselves from their competition.”

— Jeff Pollock, CEO

TOPSFIELD, MA, UNITED STATES, July 20, 2018 / — Topsfield, MA- Idencia, Inc. announced today that is launching an international reseller program that will enable operating partners to include the Idencia information tracking solution with their products. Vendors in the infrastructure supply chain may now offer ‘smart products’. An RFID tag embedded in (or affixed to) the product can be scanned to source all historic records associated with the product. Being web hosted, different parties in the supply chain can add information to create a timeline history of each product from time of manufacture through end of useful life.

The program allows parties throughout the infrastructure supply chain to add more value to their customers:

• Equipment manufacturers who sell to precast concrete producers can now offer a mold that enables their customers to sell ‘smart concrete products’.

Precast concrete manufacturers that sell their products equipped with Idencia provide a more valuable ‘smart product’ that sets them apart from their competition and makes their customer more productive.

• Contractors that include Idencia can distinguish their projects and add margin by offering project owners more value from the use of ‘smart products’.

Jeff Pollock, Idencia CEO, elaborated: “Resellers can include our information tracking service under their own brand “powered by Idencia”. We want to provide our partners with every opportunity to clearly differentiate themselves from their competition.” He added that Idencia is already in conversations with potential partners in the US, Europe, Australia and the Middle East.

Mustang Resources – Maiden Vanadium Resource at Caula Project

JORC Measured Resource of 22 Mt @ 0.37% V2O5 for 81,600 tonnes of contained V2O5 – associated with graphite deposit

Mustang Resources Ltd (ASX:MUS)

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, July 20, 2018 / — Mustang Resources Ltd (ASX: MUS, FRA: GGY) is pleased to announce that its Caula Vanadium-Graphite project in Mozambique has taken another key step towards development with the completion of the maiden JORC-compliant vanadium Mineral Resource estimate.

Key points:
• Total Maiden JORC Resource of 22 Mt @ 0.37% vanadium pentoxide (V2O5) (0.2 % grade cut-off) at the Caula Vanadium-Graphite Project in Mozambique
• The entire Vanadium Resource is in the Measured Resource category
• Total contained V2O5 of 81,600 tonnes (~180 Mlb)
• Current V2O5 price is of US$18.50/lb (US$40,500/tonne) (98% V2O5)
• Substantial scope for further growth in the Vanadium Resource through exploration

Measured JORC Vanadium Resources is addition to the existing graphite Resource at Caula of 5Mt at 13% Total Graphitic Carbon (TGC). Mustang is currently finalising an updated graphite Mineral Resource estimate.

Mustang Managing Director Dr. Bernard Olivier said the combination of the vanadium and graphite resources shows Caula is rapidly emerging as a highly valuable project.
“This is an exceptional result, with over 81,000 tonnes contained V2O5, particularly given that the entire JORC Resource is in the Measured category,” Dr Olivier said.
“With vanadium pentoxide prices running at more than US$40,000 per tonne (98% V2O5), the Caula resource translates to a highly valuable resource.
“Furthermore, the potential of the project is even greater as our vanadium is mica-hosted and associated with the graphite mineralisation and potentially far cheaper to extract and recover through two simple processing steps, compared with most vanadium projects, where the vanadium is located in a complex titaniferous magnetite ore body.”

RENO, NEV., UNITED STATES, July 16, 2018 / — RENO, Nev. – Who says there’s no such things as unicorns? A five-ounce Chinese ‘Beloved Unicorn’ gold coin sold for $32,535 to take top lot honors at Holabird Western Americana Collections’ five-day June Treasures from Pacific Shores auction held June 22-26 in Reno. The runner-up lot was an astounding ore specimen collection from Nevada’s mining past ($15,625).

The auction was loaded with nearly 3,600 lots covering many categories, including numismatics, mining, minerals, general Americana, railroad, tokens, antique bottles, gaming, firearms and weaponry, Wells Fargo and Express collectibles and more. The event, which grossed $489,500, was held online and in Holabird’s gallery, located at 3555 Airway Drive (Suite 308) in Reno.

The ‘Beloved Unicorn’ gold coin, which is legal tender in the People’s Republic of China, was one of only 99 minted and was graded in proof condition. It came housed in a lovely presentation case and had a .999 gold composition. The mirror back obverse featured a design of two unicorns (a standing adult and resting offspring) with the word “UNICORN” in print and a currency mark.

The June 23rd session contained 158 lots of minerals and ore specimens and 531 lots of mining collectibles, to include lamps, candlesticks and hard goods. “We had two superb collections,” said Fred Holabird of Holabird Western Americana Collections, “the Gottschalk Aurora, Nevada collection, many with visible gold, and the Con-Virginia, Dayton Consolidated ore collection.”

The latter collection, of more than 250 ore specimens and samples, all labeled, proved to be the more attractive of the two to bidders. “We decided to keep the Con-Virginia collection together, since it represented a complete group of minerals and ore from producing Western mines in the 1920s and ‘30s and before,” Mr. Holabird said. “But both collections were unique and valuable.”

The highlight of the Gottschalk Collection was a high-grade gold specimen from the Florence Mine at Goldfield, Nev. The cut face specimen, 3 inches by 2 inches, with original label, brought $1,750. Also from the Gottschalk Collection, a pair of gold-silver specimens out of the Cortez Mine in Aurora, Nev. – considered one of the original rich mines – sold as one lot for $1,062.

Following are additional highlights from the auction. For those unable to attend in person, online bidding was provided by,, eBay Live and About 3,700 people registered to bid across all the platforms. They placed 3,155 live bids and 1,843 absentee bids. Phone bids were also accepted. All prices quoted include the buyer’s premium.

A Chinese silver Liang (Tael) coin, minted in 1908 in the Hunan Province and issued by the Ta Ch’ing Government Bank, with the obverse showing three lines of two characters each and the reverse two lines of three characters each, garnered $8,438. Also, a W. Conklin IOU token good for 12 ½ cents in trade, issued in Sabrine Pass, Texas and in good condition, commanded $1,875.

A rare onion skin Green Mountain Mining (Ontonagon County, Mich.) stock certificate issued in 1862 in the amount of 25 shares to a Mr. Oliver Severance, signed by the company president and secretary, realized $2,250; while a Peoples Ice Company (Boca, Calif.) stock certificate for 45 shares, issued to “Thompson” in 1875, also signed by the president and secretary, made $438.

A framed print of the fabled Pacific Coast Borax 20-mule team, pulling wagons through Death Valley, Calif., measuring 16 inches by 42 inches (in the frame) breezed to $2,928. Also, a circa 1900 World War I-era military campaign hat, Western style, with acorn ties and an upturned wreath with the number “3” at the center, issued to staff non-commissioned officers, hit $594.

Great deals were to be had for bidders savvy enough to score them. A black tin box filled with Bassick Gold Mine (Querida, Colo.) company records from 1899-1901 – thousands of checks and invoices – went for just $1,000, and a beautifully refinished early 1900s Mason player piano, a fixtured in early honky-tonk bars and saloons, with stool and 300 music rolls, fetched $938.

Some lots sold for a ridiculously low $12.50 each, believe it or not. They included the following:

• 1950s early Knott’s Berry Farm (Disneyland) ephemera, to include a color booklet with mailing envelope, chicken dinner restaurant menu and Disneyland Hotel unused postcard.
• Set of eight 20th century tobacco company stock certificates, including ones for Liggett & Myers, Burley Tobacco Co., Pumpelly-Howe Tobacco Co., and Continental Tobacco Co.
• Collection of over 40 Wells Fargo and American Express envelopes, most addressed to Stupp Floral Company of St. Joseph, Mo., and postmarked Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas.

Holabird Western Americana Collections’ next big event will be an Americana auction sometime in August (dates and times to be announced), followed by an auction that will coincide with the National Token Collectors Association annual token auction on Friday, Aug. 31, in Sandy, Utah.

Anyone owning a collection that might fit into an upcoming Holabird Western Americana Collections auction is encouraged to get in touch. The firm travels extensively throughout the U.S., to see and pick up collections. Last year it visited Boston, Florida, Seattle and New York.

Laser Photonics Corporation Introduces Innovative Titan Express Mid-Size Laser Cutting Machine

Laser Photonics Logo

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, July 12, 2018 / — The innovative Titan Express, a mid-size laser cutting machine from Laser Photonics, combines a small footprint and high performance with the cut quality of a full-size industrial laser cutter. This laser cutting machine is powerful and reliable, integrating cutting edge motion engineering, CNC control, and fiber laser technologies in a size that will fit any facility and budget. It is equipped with a high-powered, energy-efficient fiber laser and an advanced direct drive motion control platform, making it the best machine for cutting highly reflective materials, including stainless steel, aluminum, brass, and copper.

The Titan Express has a lightweight design and the fastest cutting speed on the market. This system consumes less than 20% of the power required by conventional CO2 laser systems and has one-third of the operating costs of other laser machines. The Titan Express’s fully software-controlled geometry alignment eliminates the need for special installation requirements and requires no optical system alignment, laser service or laser replacement parts, making this system virtually maintenance-free.

The performance advantage of this laser cutting system is Direct Drive Motion System (DDMS) technology, a maintenance-free magnetic-based motion platform that is superior to any other mechanical motion system simply because it is an order of magnitude lower in resistance. All other competing technologies require larger, high power consumption motors to offset higher-resistant motion systems that need routine replacement of parts due to continuous friction- based wear and tear. Another significant technology advantage is the use of fully-sealed encoders that permanently eliminate conditions for laser placement errors and material jamming accidents associated with optical encoders that occasionally break or lose location accuracy due to accumulated debris obscuring the optical location functionality.
These laser cutting systems are equipped with native CNC G-Code Controls and can be operated by any trained machinist. They are geared toward companies involved in sheet metal fabrication and equipment manufacturing, as well as companies that produce construction equipment, aluminum vehicles, kitchenware, copper and brass gaskets, food processing equipment, and materials used in the aerospace and defense industries.

Laser Photonics is the industry leader in developing high-tech Fiber, UltraFast, UV, CO2 and Green laser systems, specializing in advanced and innovative processes and technologies. The company is a one-stop shop, supplying laser machines, automation, and software, as well as exceptional customer service. All systems are made in the USA, and warranties and financing programs are available. For more information about Laser Photonics’ Titan Express Series, visit or call (407) 804-1000.
