Graphite miner part of consortium to build lithium-ion battery plant
Strong announcement today by ASX-listed Magnis Resources that it is part of a global consortium that has signed an MOU to build a 15GWh Lithium-ion battery manufacturing plant in Australia: hxxps://goo.gl/yWYhlU
Good to see a graphite miner at the forefront of developments in the fast-growing EV battery market. Graphite is a key component in lithium-ion batteries.

|Lol...it definitely will not be left in the ground, Brockham's completion production approval imminent. Gla :-)
A little reminder of why Alba has multi-bag potential. Gla holders ;-)
Ernst and Young Report
The so-called Gatwick Gusher, a shale basin in the United Kingdom, could add as much as $74 billion to the nation's economy, a study finds.
U.K. Oil & Gas Investments commissioned Ernst & Young to examine the future potential of oil production from the Weald shale basin.
"Assuming it can be extracted from a development site at the volumes projected by U.K. Oil & Gas, has the potential to generate significant economic value to the U.K. economy," the report read.
Oil & Gas U.K., the industry's lobbying group, said the North Sea oil sector is in for a long period of decline, with less than $1.4 billion in new spending expected in 2016. Inland shale, meanwhile, has the potential to add between $10 billion and $74.6 billion to the British economy in gross value, the commissioned report said.
Operators are working to assess the potential in the shale area by testing the Horse Hill-1 oil discovery. Preliminary estimates made by the company last year put the entire Horse Hill reserve total as high as 100 billion barrels of oil. If its full potential is reached, the future production from the area could provide as much as a quarter of the nation's total oil demand over its lifespan, based on 2014 demand levels.
The field, locked in a geological formation called the Kimmeridge Limestone, is about three miles away from the Gatwick Airport, earning it the nickname the Gatwick Gusher.
Stephen Sanderson, the executive chairman of U.K. Oil & Gas, said developing the shale basin could make a significant contribution to the British economy. Oil is already flowing at nearly three times the expected peak rate.
"It is therefore possible that the overall economic impact of Kimmeridge Limestone oil could be significantly higher than this initial report describes," he said in a statement.
|mikeygit:> Spot on - Diplomacy also not in my vocab - but your post above hits the nail on the head - If not enough oil or too NIMBY to move economically from the well head then possibly marked as UK strategic reserve to be left in ground !!!|
|Tick Tock....Code 25??? Significant upside on OGA Approval for Brockham's completion/production....anytime now.:-)|
|PUGUGLY---True, he can talk a talk whether its good or not?? Seen some of his presentations and diplomacy aint in his vocabulary!! What MM says above is true--POTENTIAL--we now want reality and whilst there maybe a shed load of oil we must have the news they can get loads out---flow tests very encouraging but we need long term proof. No big boys jumped in yet and I guess they too are waiting for THE RESULTS of how much can be got out and also waiting for all the planning and approvals before rubber stamping The Weald as the PROVEN world beater. Thing that slightly concerns me is that these little companies we are invested in have---as far as I know---not presented anyone with a business plan. Lorries will not be enough to get this lot out of the ground and we need an infrastructure of pipelines or oil tanker trains---costs a lot so where do these minnows get their money from to do this---maybe this will be when the BIG BOYS step in. Lots of water to go under the bridge yet before we get OIL!!|
|So far DL's expectations of the Weald have been spot on, and the proof will be in the pudding.....Brockham's completion/production expected Spring/Summer and Horse Hill's extended flowtests expected to be underway late Summer. Gla holders...a potential transformational stellar year ahead on confirmation of free flowing high quality oil in volume from either/both sites. ;-)|
|mikeygit: May I suggest that too many investors have bought DL's enthusiasm in the past and subsequently got burnt so that his involvment could be a red flag to many ?|
|OGA approval due!!!
Licensees can apply for consent to drill and conduct other activities on a well and notify the OGA of these through the Well Operations and Notifications System. Applications to drill should be submitted at least 28 days in advance.
Introduction WONS (Well Operations Notifications System) is an Energy Portal application to allow the UK Oil & Gas Industry to apply for, notify and receive consent for a wide range of drilling and related activities as required under Production Licences.
The primary focus of WONS is the technical (geological and geophysical) basis for planned wells, collating and assigning consent for activities required under the model clauses of Production Licences (and various landward licences). WONS works by a system of online submissions: applications for planned activity (from the operator), consents for that activity (from OGA) and notifications of what actually took place (from the operator).
Applications may be supported by mandatory or optional supporting documents which can be attached to the relevant submission.
Further permits and notifications will be required (for example, environmental permits for offshore wells handled by DECC's Portal Environmental Tracking Software, and for onshore wells, HSE, relevant local authority and Environment Agency submissions).
However, consent under the Production licence issued by the OGA from WONS will normally be the final consent in place before drilling can commence.
|Hopefully get final results next week was 25th April last year.|
|Problem is--as DL said in his presentation---none of any BIG BOYS are invested here and is full of people trying to make a quick buck here and there, which does not make sense, they think they are big wheeler dealers when all they are doing is creating an share price stalemate!! As DL also said--MM--the quality of the oil is better than the North Sea---one day this will BOOM and hopefully we can make some real money not just 10 quid here and there!! Hope I am still alive to appreciate it!!! GLA|
|4m sold at .26 and over this morning (of some 7m+ sold altogether.
Can now buy for .26 - Where's the business sense in that?|
|Just wait until Theresa has full control of the UK's destiny ...and no doubt a major will step in once all the dirty work has been done by the Weald players with Nutech and Schlumberger's multi-billion barrel assessment finally confirmed and definite proof that the high quality oil is recoverable in massive volume.....multi-pad well sites discreetly positioned with a network of underground pipelines providing billions of £'s in revenue.

Global Graphite Market Worth USD 17.56 Billion by 2020
According to a new market report published by Persistence Market Research “Global Market Study on Graphite: Battery Segment To Witness Highest Growth by 2020”, the global graphite market was valued at USD 13.62 billion in 2013 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.7% from 2014 to 2020, to reach USD 17.56 billion in 2020.|
|George Frangeskides posted a squawk about ALBA
Interesting report in Industrial Minerals from respected graphite expert, Christoph Frey, MD of ProGraphite GmbH. According to Cristoph, the Chinese car market will be the biggest driver of demand for lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries, and therefore for graphite, in the near term. While there will be some growth in electric vehicles (EVs) outside China, there will be very strong growth in China’s domestic EV market, he added. ProGraphite expects significant expansion of the Li-ion battery market in the next few years. In 2016, Li-ion battery production was less than 100GWh: ProGraphite’s forecasts for production by 2025 range from a conservative 300GWh to a bullish 600GWh. The price and performance of EVs will be competitive with conventional cars by 2020 at the latest, ProGraphite believes, and better battery performance and lower prices will lead to a wider range of applications.|
|Go get 'em Dave. ;-)

Surrey County Council is seriously going to get a legal suite on telling lies from Doriemus. Including Individuals and their families - lies

|Thanks for that MM---Not surprised by what Angus has said. A company of their standing is very unlikely to have contravened such an important Planning Issue and proves that the BBC and the Press have NOT tidied up their act and continue to---allegedly---print incorrect and damaging comments with little apology when they are found to have made incorrect comments--we move on and wait for great things!!??|
|near enough as good as an RNS........OGA approval for production of Brockham's oil saturated Kimmeridge interval coming. ;-)|
|Interview with DL and Tidswell from Angus, 34 minutes into interview Tidswell's confirms " We have planning from SCC......confusion from SCC and one or two members who may feel differently ( over 600 Councillors ) but we have taken legal advice and we are 100% certain that our planning holds......"We have planning!!! "
|pps and as far as any fund raising is concerned, a small cap explorer/producer with a potential significant daily revenue stream as illustrated will be on Easy Street, as will its shareholders. GL On and Up!!! ;-)|
|Lol as usual frigid comes out from beneath his stone when he's worried about Alba's imminent upside potential......OGA approval for Brockham's production will see a significant rise in share price ....DL's latest interview confirms extraction costs of $10 a barrel, and the log and drilling data suggests that Brockham's Kimmeridge interval could be even better than at HH and the Kimmeridge clay's either side of the limestones are unexpectedly naturally fractured too...giving a total oil play of 900ft...which also suggests that the likely flow rates will far exceed the outstanding 1,680bopd witnessed at HH......of course the proof will be in the pudding and so not long before we find out....OGA approval first, production expected Spring/Summer and then HH's eagerly awaited extended flow tests to follow, permit approval expected July......frigid appears completely blind to the transformational upside opportunity, but that's his negative remit and snide agenda.....Gla holders ;-)
ps and very likely no depletion of reserves, when you're tapped into an oil saturated clay sponge that extends for miles and miles in either direction, and the Corrillian that lies beneath appears also to be oil saturated and under high gas pressure...... Exciting times ahead. ;-)|
|As usual moneymunch has the rose-tinted specs on.
If Brockham flows at 500 bopd then Alba's share is 5% which is 25 barrels.
If the oil price is 60$ then Alba might make $25 after costs. So that is $625 per day. Accounting for downtime then maybe 300 days production gives Alba $187500 per year which is £150,000. Then you have to factor in natural depletion and constant drilling to keep production going at these levels.
I still regard Alba as overvalued. First thing to sort out is the funding. Even a billion shares at 0.25p would only raise £2.5M which is peanuts. I think they need to raise at least £5M otherwise they will just be going back to the market in 12 months for more funding. So 2 billion shares at 0.25p raises £5M. At that point tiny Alba will have nearly 4 billion shares in issue.|
|It's gross as per my post. ;-)
ps 2000bopd at Brockham = £5k a day, a staggering £1.825m per annum....and so from Alba's current £5m market cap, the transformational upside is pretty obvious on good flow results, factor in Horse Hill's 9.75% potential and Greenland's graphite and gold, then Alba looks all set for the multi-bags of multibags in the not too distant.
