Azincourt Energy Corp (TSX:AAZ)

VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA, January 21, 2021 / — AZINCOURT ENERGY CORP. (“Azincourt” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: AAZ, OTC: AZURF), is pleased to provide an update on preparations for the 2021 winter exploration program at the East Preston uranium project, located in the western Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan, Canada.

Results from the 2020 HLEM survey have been received and drill target prioritization is now underway, based on the compilation of results from the 2019 and 2020 drill programs and 2018 through 2020 ground based EM and gravity surveys, and property wide VTEM and magnetic surveys.

An exploration program of approximately $1M to $1.4M will focus on the central portion of the East Preston property. Permits are in place to allow the commencement of an approximately 2000-2500 meter drill program consisting of up to 10 to 12 holes testing targets extending south from the A Zone into the G1, G2 and G3 target areas. Drilling in the A zone suggests this structural corridor hosts significant graphitic packages within strongly sheared and faulted host lithologies, indicating an environment conducive to fluid movement and uranium deposition.

“East Preston has an abundance of untested conductive packages and compelling drill targets,” said Exploration Manager, Trevor Perkins. “We are eager to continue evaluating these conductive packages, focusing on the most responsive areas, and advancing the East Preston Project,” continued Mr. Perkins.

“We’re pleased to get the 2021 drill program underway,” said president and CEO, Alex Klenman. “East Preston has had only 12 holes drilled to date, and these early results confirm we have the right basement unconformity uranium setting with the right rocks, structure and alteration. We’re still very early in the exploration phase, and with the recent geophysics program adding even more drill targets, we believe strongly we’re on the path to discovery. With the uranium space beginning to turn to the upside, the timing for drilling is excellent,” commented Mr. Klenman.

Crews are currently preparing roads into the proposed drilling areas. Drill pad locations are now being firmed up and will be announced closer to the drill commencement date, which is expected to be mid-February. TerraLogic Exploration and Bryson Drilling have both once again been contracted to execute the drill program, which is being conducted under the guidance and supervision of Azincourt’s Exploration Manager, Trevor Perkins, P.Geo, and Jarrod Brown, M.Sc., P.Geo, Chief Geologist and Project Manager with TerraLogic Exploration.

About East Preston

Azincourt is currently earning towards 70% interest in the 25,000+ hectare East Preston project as part of a joint venture agreement with Skyharbour Resources (TSX.V: SYH), and Dixie Gold Inc (Figure 2: Project Location – Western Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan, Canada). Three prospective conductive, low magnetic signature corridors have been discovered on the property. The three distinct corridors have a total strike length of over 25 km, each with multiple EM conductor trends identified. Ground prospecting and sampling work completed to date has identified outcrop, soil, biogeochemical and radon anomalies, which are key pathfinder elements for unconformity uranium deposit discovery.

The East Preston Project has multiple long linear conductors with flexural changes in orientation and offset breaks in the vicinity of interpreted fault lineaments – classic targets for basement-hosted unconformity uranium deposits. These are not just simple basement conductors; they are clearly upgraded/enhanced prospectivity targets because of the structural complexity.

The targets are basement-hosted unconformity related uranium deposits similar to NexGen’s Arrow deposit and Cameco’s Eagle Point mine. East Preston is near the southern edge of the western Athabasca Basin, where targets are in a near surface environment without Athabasca sandstone cover – therefore they are relatively shallow targets but can have great depth extent when discovered. The project ground is located along a parallel conductive trend between the PLS-Arrow trend and Cameco’s Centennial deposit (Virgin River-Dufferin Lake trend).

First Energy Metals (CSE: FE) (OTC: ASKDF ) announces entering into option agreement to acquire a lithium exploration property located in Quebec, Canada.

First Energy Metals Ltd (CSE:FE.C)

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, January 21, 2021 / — reports -First Energy Metals Ltd. (CSE: FE) (OTC: ASKDF ) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an option agreement to acquire a lithium exploration property located in Landrienne & Lacorne-Townships, Quebec, Canada. The property consists of three non-contiguous claim groups representing a total area of 627.35 hectares located approximately 40 kilometres northwest of the town of Val d’Or on map sheet 32C/05. The geology and the mineralization of the Augustus property are similar to the geology and mineralization of Quebec Lithium mine located approximately 6 kilometers to the southeast of the property.

Augustus Lithium Property Highlights
• The Property is a part of the Preissac – Lacorne pegmatite fields where spodumene bearing lithium pegmatites were discovered in 1940s’. It has excellent infrastructure support with road network, railway, electricity, water, and trained manpower available locally.
• Geologically the Preissac-Lacorne area lies within a belt of volcanic and sedimentary rocks intruded to the north by LaMotte batholiths and to the south by the Preissac batholiths and Moly Hill pluton.
• There are several historical and currently active lithium and molybdenum prospects/mines located approximately 3 km to 20 km from the Property. Some of the important prospects/mines are: Mine Quebec Lithium which was formerly owned by RB Energy, Authier Lithium owned by Sayona Mining of Australia, Valor Lithium, Duval Lithium, Lacorne Lithium, International Lithium, Vallee Lithium, and Moly Hill Mine. All these projects / prospects are at various stages of exploration and development, out of which Mine Quebec Lithium is the most advanced project followed by Authier lithium project. Total lithium resources for this region are over 50 million tonnes at 1% lithium oxide out of which Mine Quebec Lithium has 32 MT at 1.19%Li2O Measured plus Indicated (M+I), Authier has 17.18 million tonnes at 1.01% Li2O (M+I) are the most significant.
• There are two prominent lithium prospects prospect (Augustus and Canadian Lithium) and one silver on the property which have been explored intermittently sine 1948. Highlights of the Augustus lithium prospect are discussed below. The Company is in the process of compiling data on the other two prospects and will release as soon as possible.
Augustus Lithium Prospect
• The Augustus pegmatite was explored in 1955 by trenching followed by diamond drilling. The pegmatite is oriented N30°W, extending more than 850 meters along strike with 7.6 meters in average width. Its depth extension is not fully known yet, however previous drilling has intersected high-grade lithium down to 682 feet (207 m). Lithium mineralization is confined to the pegmatite body with an average grade of 1.12% lithium oxide (Li2O) (0.52% Li) across a width of 7.6. meters (Source: Géologie Québec – Results of the query (
• The highlights of the previous drilling results include:1.69% Li2O over 9 feet (2.74m), 1.25% Li2O over 27.5 feet (8.38m), 1.07% Li2O over 20 feet (6.1m), 1.66% Li2O over 12.5 feet (3.8m), and 1.41% Li2O over 27 feet (8.23m) (see Table 1 below) (Source Report GM03952).
• Based on the 1955 drilling results, the continuity of lithium mineralization is established between all drill holes for over 850 meters strike length down to a depth of 207 m (682 feet) of the Augustus pegmatite body (see Table 1 below). If mineralization continuity can be proven by future drilling down to over 200 meters level as shown in historical drill hole results, a potential resource target of 4 million tonnes at 1% Li2O can be achieved.
Cautionary Statement: Investors are cautioned that the potential quantity and grade mentioned above is conceptual in nature, there has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resource and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the target being delineated as a mineral resource. The potential target is based upon historical drilling results taken from report GM03952 (April 27, 1956) and other sources from MRNF Quebec.

Canadian Lithium Prospect
• The Canadian lithium prospect is a worked deposit located in Range 1 lot 25-26 in the Landrienne Township at G.P.S 284861 E – 5368288 N. The main outcrop was discovered in 1948 near the boundary line separating the Landrienne and Lacorne Townships. A group of parallel pegmatite dykes associated with Lacorne Batholith contains aggregates of spodumene, lepidolite, quartz and feldspar accompanied by traces of beryl, clevelandite, colombo-tantalite.
• Drilling at the prospect have shown low grade lithium bearing pegmatite intersections of extensive widths. A total of 11 historical drill holes are located on this prospect. The Company is in the process of compiling historical drilling data on this prospect and will release as soon as possible (Source Reports GM03952 and GM00744).

Clean Air Metals Announces a Mineral Resource for the Thunder Bay North Project

including a total Inferred Resource of 9,852,138 tonnes at an average grade of 2.1 g/t PdEq containing 663,660 ounces PdEq

Clean Air Metals Inc. (TSX:AIR.V)

The broad suite of metals contained in the Thunder Bay North deposits is quite unique and positions the Company well for participation in the transition to a low carbon transportation future. ”

— Jim Gallagher, Executive Chairman

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO, CANADA, January 20, 2021 / — Clean Air Metals Inc. (TSXV: AIR; OTCQB: CLRMF; FRA: CKU) is pleased to announce that the Company has released an updated Indicated and Inferred mineral resource estimate prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 for the Company's 100%-owned Thunder Bay North Project which includes both the Current Lake and Escape Lake deposits.

The mineral resource estimate was prepared by Nordmin Engineering Ltd. and is based on an underground ramp-access constrained resource model with a cutoff value equating to 1.56 g/tonne PdEq (2.56 g/tonne PtEq) using 3-year trailing average metal prices for all metals except cobalt, which used a 2-year trailing average as described below in Table 8. A technical report will be filed on SEDAR within 45 days of the date of this news release.

The Current Lake Deposit contains an Indicated mineral resource of 11,999,177 tonnes grading 3.44 g/t PdEq and an Inferred mineral resource of 6,406,960 tonnes grading 2.02 g/tonne PdEq (See Table 1; Figure 2)

The Escape Lake Deposit contains an Indicated mineral resource of 4,286,220 tonnes grading 3.67 g/t PdEq and an Inferred mineral resource of 3,445,179 tonnes grading 2.23 g/tonne PdEq (See Table 2; Figure 3).


• Indicated mineral resources at Thunder Bay North Project are approximately 1.33 million oz PdEq in the Current Lake Deposit and 0.50 million oz PdEq in the Escape Lake Deposit.
• Inferred mineral resources at Thunder Bay North Project are approximately 0.41 million oz PdEq in the Current Lake Deposit and 0.25 million oz PdEq in the Escape Lake Deposit.
• The underground resource at the Current Lake Deposit will now be the focus of a Preliminary Economic Assessment which will include specific work on geotechnical analysis and bench scale testing on a drilled bulk sample of mineralized material to verify metallurgical recoveries.
• The Indicated mineral resource is developed in multiple zones which exhibit a variable grade profile with highest grades occurring at relatively shallow depths, including the lower Current Zone and Bridge Zone in the Current Lake Deposit. (See Table 3; Figure1).
• The initial mineral resource at Escape Lake is geologically open and will be the target of an extensive systematic drilling program planned for 2021.
• Current Lake and Escape Lake are polymetallic deposits with a roughly 1:1 platinum to palladium ratio and comparable geological attributes and metal grades.
• Nickel and Copper contribute significant metal values and will be tested for metallurgical flotation and recovery potential.
• Gold, Silver, Cobalt and Rhodium are potentially valuable byproducts in the metal mix at Thunder Bay North Project.


Clean Air Metals will be conducting a webinar to discuss the resource update with Amvest Capital on January 26th at 4:05pm EST. Please see the link below:


Executive Comments

Abraham Drost, P.Geo., CEO of Clean Air Metals stated, “We are very pleased for our shareholders and participating First Nations with this milestone mineral resource study. An underground ramp-access mine planning approach by Nordmin Engineering has been the key to unlock value at the Thunder Bay North Project. We look forward to a busy year ahead as we continue drilling with two drills in an effort to increase and upgrade mineral resources at the Escape Lake. We also plan on adding a drill at the Current Lake Deposit focused on upgrading Inferred material to Indicated and testing nearby greenfields exploration targets with massive sulphide potential.”

Jim Gallagher, P.Eng., Executive Chairman of Clean Air Metals stated, “The broad suite of metals contained in the Thunder Bay North deposits is quite unique and positions the Company well for participation in the transition to a low carbon transportation future. Tougher emissions standards worldwide have significantly increased loadings of Palladium and Rhodium in auto catalysts pushing prices to near record levels. Platinum prices have risen sharply in the last several months as hydrogen and fuel cells become a viable alternative especially in the trucking and long-distance transportation sectors. Nickel, Copper and Cobalt are key to the battery electric revolution and Gold and Silver provide a potential sweetener to a future revenue stream. Subject to future feasibility studies around economic viability, this could give Clean Air Metals a natural hedge against fluctuating metal prices regardless of which technology becomes dominant.”

2021 Exploration Update

A 2021 drill program on the initial resource at the Escape Lake Deposit will commence immediately with two drills, expanding the Escape Lake South high-grade zone area, upgrading Inferred material and filling in the gaps along the 3 km long conduit where geological potential for resource growth exists.

A third drill, commencing in Q2, 2021 will mobilize to the Current Lake Deposit area and upgrade Inferred material in the Beaver Lake Zone. Drilling will also test certain geophysical anomalies identified in last year’s work in the Feeder Zone area underlain by the Escape Lake Fault at the southern base of the Current Lake intrusion. The target in this area is the source of certain narrow, high grade massive sulphide lenses, found injected further up in the Current Lake conduit.

Social Engagement

Clean Air Metals and its wholly-owned subsidiary Panoramic PGMs (Canada) Limited acknowledge that the Escape Lake Property and the Current Lake Property, which collectively make up the Thunder Bay North Project, are on the traditional territories of the Fort William First Nation, Red Rock Indian Band and Biinjitiwabik Zaaging Anishinabek. The parties have entered into a Memorandum of Agreement as Cooperating Participants and are committed to ongoing updates and dialogue around the Thunder Bay North Project.

Input Parameters for Resource Calculation

Mining Cutoff Grade

The cutoff value used for the mineral resource is US$77/tonne (CA$101/tonne) insitu contained value, 1.58g/tonne Palladium Equivalent (PdEq) (US$77 / (US$1,516.82/31.10305)) or 2.65g/tonne Platinum Equivalent (US$77 / (US$902.38/31.10305)).The cutoff value is calculated based on estimations as follows: direct mining operating cost, onsite milling operating cost, tailings management facility operating cost, indirect operating cost, general and administration (G&A) cost, onsite milling metal recoveries, offsite smelting metal recoveries, and smelter metal payable percentages.

Rare Earth Element News -Defense Metals (TSX-V: $DEFN.V) FOUNDING MEMBER C2M2A

Defense Metals (TSXV:DEFN /OTCQB:DFMTF) announces its support as a Founding Member of recently launched Canadian Critical Minerals & Materials Alliance (C2M2A)

Defense Metals Corp. (TSX:DEFN.V)

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, January 19, 2021 / — Mining/Metals/ Green Energy Stock News from Newswire: Defense Metals Corp. (“Defense Metals”) (TSX-V:DEFN / OTCQB:DFMTF/ 35D: FSE) is pleased to announce its support as a Founding Member of the recently launched Canadian Critical Minerals and Materials Alliance (C2M2A). Defense Metals and nine other C2M2A founders reflect a broad knowledge base across the suite of critical material supply chains; including current & prospective producers and processors, commercial & national laboratories, academia and innovation hubs, and engineering & business experts.

Read this news, featuring DEFN in full at

Defense Metals support of the C2M2A initiative, representing a clear industry voice to guide Government of Canada policy towards establishing Canadian-based critical material supply chains, will greatly benefit the advancement of its 1,708 hectare (4,220 acre) Wicheeda Rare Earth Element (REE) Property (“Wicheeda”) located near Prince George, British Columbia (BC). The Wicheeda project has indicated mineral resources of 4,890,000 tonnes averaging 3.02% LREO (Light Rare Earth Elements) and inferred mineral resources of 12,100,000 tonnes averaging 2.90% LREO (1).

Launched on January 14, 2021 the Canadian Critical Minerals and Materials Alliance is an industry association aimed at advancing resilient critical materials supply chains for Canada’s cleantech economy. The launch of C2M2A builds on the earlier establishment of the Canadian Rare Earth Elements Network (CREEN) in 2013 and its success in building awareness on the growing importance of rare earth elements.

Recent geopolitical developments have underscored the importance of the critical materials supply chains necessary for clean energy, electric vehicles, communications, medical and aerospace applications. A coordinated supply chain consortium, which represents both upstream and downstream critical materials producers (e.g., rare earth elements, lithium, cobalt, graphite and others) will help support policymakers and industry players implement strategies that will enable full Canadian participation in the sector.

Other international jurisdictions including the European Union, Japan, the United States and Australia have already made announcements on their critical materials strategy. Alliance members agree that it is time for Canada to step up and move forward with its own strategy. Canada is well positioned to implement its vision for a clean energy future because of its enormous critical minerals resource wealth; however, the country must implement a strategy to use this wealth to establish the downstream processing capacity to create the refined materials needed in electric vehicle and battery technologies.

Recent announcements by the federal government with Ford Motors and General Motors on their plans to establish more electric vehicle manufacturing capacity in Canada confirm Canada’s commitment to a low-carbon future. C2M2A will help support further investments in this rapidly advancing sector of the economy, particularly in outlining the effort and costs to build value- creating materials chains in Canada.

Craig Taylor, CEO comments:

“With the support of the C2M2A initiative Defense Metals continues to establish itself as one of the industry leaders in the advancing Canadian-based critical material supply chains. As North America and the world move toward widespread adoption of electric vehicles and other green technologies there will be upward demand pressure on critical REE magnet-metals, principally NdPr. Defense Metals is well-positioned to meet demand for North American-sourced critical REE’s with one of the highest-grade road accessible deposits, with potential to reduce the political and strategic risk of current reliance on Chinese REE sources.”

About C2M2A
C2M2A is a non-profit, independent organization with a mission to foster and enhance Canada’s role as a leader in the production of critical materials manufacturing in support of the global transition to a low-carbon, clean-growth economy. By focusing on rapidly advancing the establishment of economic critical materials production and manufacturing capacity, Canada will grow its economy, compete globally and continue to protect the environment. C2M2A will enable stakeholders around the country to collaborate on shared priorities while respecting each jurisdiction’s needs and plans, including the need to ensure the continued competitiveness and viability of businesses.

Anyone affected by social restrictions during lockdown can claim their free refurbished computer from old stocks rescued from their journey to landfill .

We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.”

— Winston S. Churchill

SOUTHMINSTER, ESSEX, UNITED KINGDOM, January 18, 2021 / — Order Efficiency Ltd is leading a mission to provide a free computer to people who are isolated in the lockdown and without the technical means to continue their studies. Many in this situation are struggling to afford computer equipment without which it is almost impossible to continue their courses.

"It's an old but good idea" says technology enthusiast Tracy Hathaway, "to build up a stock of workstations from old equipment and spare parts that businesses would otherwise throw away. Work stations that can be put to immediate good use by students as a temporary solution to see them through their studies."

There are government schemes in place to address this problem and computers are being made available for schools in their thousands. The TROM Computers project is intended to run alongside the government scheme as an alternative source for supply of old reconditioned computers refurbished with a state of the art alternative to Windows operating system and with full ongoing technical support.

First priority for the project is to establish a list of people who could benefit from a TROM Computer, followed closely by an appeal for donations of equipment from individuals and businesses about to discarding or liquidate their written-off old stock.

"Although the government route exists, I personally found the application process difficult and time consuming, and for me as an individual, I was never really sure whether or not I was eligible to apply." said Hannah Griffin, New City College Nursing Student, "but after I registered my interest in a TROM Computer, one was made available for me the very next day, and completely free of charge.""

For a look inside TROM Jaro, the operating system of choice for the TROM Computers project, there is an in-depth review by Tech News World. TROM Jaro is a Unix variant and is far superior to the operating system generally found pre-installed on new computers, and because it is not bloated with intrusive commercial add-ins, it is more likely to work well on older hardware.

On the 'TROM' You Tube channel there is a plethora of video demonstrations and tutorials including a walk-through of the TROM_Jaro – Trade Free Operating System. When you enter the world of TROM you discover a wide range of first class applications that are not only free, but 'trade free' which means that the creators gift them to the world with no expectation of ongoing revenue outside the voluntary donations that users may make from time to time as a show of appreciation for the effort that the developer put into the design of the application.

Before the project can start in earnest, there needs to be interest shown from prospective takers of the free computers. "If there proves to be no demand, then unfortunately there is nothing for us to do" says David Winter, Director of Order Efficiency Ltd, "but as soon as the demand is evident, which we expect in huge proportion, we will make intensive effort in gathering hardware needed to accelerate the project's operations."

The only workshop currently established is located in Southminster, Essex. But requests for a free TROM Computer are invited from anywhere in the world, as new workshops will spring up wherever there is a demand. We expect that the network of workshops will become widespread and abundant, with free TROM Computers distributed everywhere. We can think of the whole network of workshops as a vast library where stocks of computers are loaned out and returned, and each user considers the computer 'on loan' for as long as it is required in the user's situation. There will be a continual movement of individual computers that is tracked by the central PHC Consortium database.

To make a request for a TROM Computer an individual should join the PHC Consortium by sending a blank e-mail to

Azincourt Energy Corp (TSX:AAZ)

VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA, January 18, 2021 / — AZINCOURT ENERGY CORP. (“Azincourt” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: AAZ, OTC: AZURF), is pleased to announce the recent ground-based geophysical exploration program at the East Preston uranium project, located in the western Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan, Canada, has been completed and the results indicate several new drill targets have been identified.

The program comprised a horizontal loop electromagnetic survey (“HLEM”) originally consisting of a total of 33 line-km of line-cutting and surveying. An additional 5 lines of cutting and surveying were added, bringing the total survey coverage to 40.5 line-km in six grid target areas. Previous updates on this survey were provided by the Company in news releases dated November 23, 2020 and December 9, 2020.

Unconformity related uranium deposits associated with the Athabasca Basin are closely associated with basement conductive packages. The HLEM survey was utilized to refine and prioritize target areas where untested conductive corridors have been identified in existing property-wide airborne VTEM survey results. The survey was successful in delineating several conductors over the six selected target areas, G1, G2, G3, K, Q and H (see Figure 2). Many of the conductors show strong well-defined responses which are deemed suitable for drill testing.

“The survey results are encouraging, and we are excited to be in a position where these targets are now ready for drill testing,” said Exploration Manager, Trevor Perkins.

“The goal was to expand the existing drill target inventory and the positive survey results have done so in meaningful way,” said president and CEO, Alex Klenman. “Adding drill targets increases the prospectivity of East Preston to an even greater degree. Simply put, more targets mean more opportunities for impactful discovery. We’re eager to complete the earn-in and continue drilling,” continued Mr. Klenman.

The total cost of the HLEM program allowed Azincourt to meet the total spend requirement of the joint venture earn-in agreement with Skyharbour Resources and Dixie Gold. Once the Company makes the final payment of the agreement (due by March 31, 2021) the earn-in will be completed and Azincourt will have earned a 70% interest in East Preston.

The Company is planning a 2021 winter drill program, details will be announced shortly.

Patterson Geophysics of La Ronge, Saskatchewan, conducted the geophysical program. Bingham Geoscience of Saskatoon oversaw the program and completed the interpretation.
