by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA

Brixton Metals Corporation (TSX-V: BBB) owns 100% of two very strong high grade gold and silver projects in Canada. The Langis Silver Mine located in Ontario near Lake Timiskaming is a very high grade silver past producer and represents a potential near term production opportunity.

Interview with Lee Barker, President and CEO of Sparton Resources (TSX.V: SRI): Completed Commissioning of the Zhangbei Project's 8 Megawatt Hour Vanadium Flow Battery
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA

Sparton Resources Inc. (TSX.V: SRI) completed commissioning of the Zhangbei Project's 8 Megawatt Hour Vanadium Flow Battery earlier this year and its client recently received payment of approximately $C3.2 million from the battery's owner, State Grid North China Company. The ongoing maintenance program revenue over the next 3 years will also provide cash flow. These payments will accrue to Sparton’s operating subsidiary company in China. According to Lee Barker, President and CEO of Sparton Resources, the vanadium flow battery is much better than lithium for large scale energy storage: they can go 100,000 cycles of fully charging and discharging, they don't lose charge while being idle, they operate in cold temperatures and warm temperatures, they don't have to be air-conditioned in hot environments, they are not flammable, better for computer systems backup, because the electricity in the vanadium battery can be discharged almost instantaneously, for large-scale storage, these batteries are about 1/3 the cost of a similar sized lithium battery, when you factor in the life of the battery over time; and at the end of their life, they are fully recyclable. There is an incredible market for large energy storage all over the world. Sparton also has access to clean and pure primary vanadium deposits in China that they believe will be developed. They are currently in the process of negotiating with various potential strategic partners to acquire the battery manufacturer and develop these deposits. This way they could potentially build a company with the source for the raw material that can make the vanadium flow batteries, and get a cost benefit from that and make it more competitive in the marketplace.
