How come commercial ops have not materialised with any company in the 7 years since this was published? If it was a goer then? I know things in the mining world are slow, but surely things should have moved on a great deal faster than they have since then? 'June 30, 2011 Firestone Ventures Now Reckons It Can Apply Alexander’s AmmLeach Processing Technology To Zinc Projects In Nevada As Well As In Guatemala By Charles Wyatt Source: Minesite.com Good to know that the technical relationship formed between Canadian-listed Firestone Ventures and Aim-traded Alexander Mining continues to make progress. The two have been testing Alexander’s Ammleach mineral processing technology on ore from Firestone’s Torlon Hill zinc-lead-silver project in Guatemala. The results of the first round of metallurgical testwork were announced back in March. These focussed on selected representative samples with a head grade of 6.99% zinc, and resulted in an average zinc dissolution of 79 per cent. This showed that zinc recoveries of up to 75 per cent should be achievable, and both Matt Sutcliffe, executive chairman of Alexander Mining and Lori Walton, chief executive of Firestone Ventures were clearly very encouraged. As a result it was decided that Alexander would develop a conceptual process flow sheet for a treatment plant to produce zinc metal from Torlon Hill using AmmLeach. The two of them also decided they would widen the scope of the technical relationship to include Firestone’s zinc oxide projects in Nevada. The following month they announced that preliminary stage amenability tests using the AmmLeach process had taken place on two grab rock samples from Firestone's Black Mountain and Antelope zinc properties. These samples, which ran to grades of 15.3% and 16.3% zinc respectively, produced high leaching recoveries. What Lori found particularly encouraging was that the process appeared to work on both smithsonite, which is zinc carbonate, and hemimorphite, which is zinc silicate, the two primary zinc-bearing minerals present at these two properties. Firestone’s 1,245 metre drill programme at Black Mountain has recently been delayed as a result of very bad winter weather, but Lori reckons it is now about to commence. At the moment Firestone has an option to earn a 100 per cent interest in the Black Mountain project from Kinross Gold. The mineralisation consists of said hemimorphite and smithsonite, hosted by Devonian carbonate rocks. At the beginning of June the conceptual flowsheet for using AmmLeach for processing material from Torlon Hill made an appearance and is now being examined by the technical people at Firestone. The study summarizes a relatively simple conceptual operation involving heap leaching, solvent extraction and stream stripping to produce a zinc oxide product. The adoption of heap leaching would eliminate the need for milling, and for agitation leaching equipment and solid-liquid separation. Cost savings would be realized through the use of AmmLeach since no on-site acid plant is required. Lori Walton’s crew is continuing its examination of the flowsheet, but is also in discussions with Alexander Mining to decide on the next steps. These may include further bench-scale work, heap leach column testing and a demonstration scale pilot plant. Even to the non-technically minded, the message comes across clearly that costs will be reduced. Ammonia has been used historically as a leaching agent, with mixed results, but no one has made it work under ambient leach conditions. In the 1970s Anaconda developed the Arbiter process for dissolution of copper sulphides with ammonia and oxygen; and twenty years later BHP Minerals developed the Escondida process in which copper concentrates are leached with ammonia and ammonium sulphate. Another 20 years on, and Alexander is the one that’s cracked it. Costs and technology aside, there are two other advantages to AmmLeach. First, it uses conventional equipment, so minimal changes are required to existing plant for anyone switching to the new technology. If anything a smaller plant is required. Second, it brings environmental benefits in terms of minimizing the likelihood of acid mine drainage and reducing problems relating to transport and shipping. Lori Walton, who comes top of the class among chief executives in Canada for her helpfulness and approachability for journos, confirms that Ammleach will not only impact Torlon Hill, Black Mountain and Antelope, but her company’s other projects as well. Clearly there’s plenty more testing to do, but in the meantime regional exploration indicates that there is plenty of scope to increase the zinc resource in Guatemala. “From our analysis of the zinc potential of Guatemala we believe that the geological setting is similar to prolific global Mississippi Valley type deposit districts”, she says. “These deposits always occur in clusters and there has literally been no modern exploration. We tied up the major land position in the zinc carbonate belt extending across Guatemala and started drilling some of our zinc occurrences in central Guatemala last spring. Our exploration target is not only the rich, high grade zinc oxide on surface, but also the large sulphide deposits related to the oxides. We are finding much evidence of what we think is zinc oxide as leakage from deeper sulphide deposits. From the grade and size of the oxide we know that there are larger sulphide deposits at depth. We are finding that the zinc is very rich in silver as well.” All to the good, but what about the zinc price which will become vital to Firestone Ventures as development approaches in the next year or two? Lori has just completed a round of corporate presentations in Toronto and was greatly encouraged by the attention that the analysts are now paying to zinc, even though retail investors have yet to get the message. The best case scenario is that zinc metal prices will be significantly higher at the end of 2011, and the worse case is that the closing of a number of zinc mines won't impact until later in 2012. The most recent transaction involved Breakwater and Nystar, and that deal left very few pure zinc companies either in production or in exploration, she says. All of which bodes well for Firestone.'

indeed all the plans are coming together. possible rise of over 450 times from here in a few years if plans succeed and tech is adopted by majors or others. This is the future Apple of mining. AIMHO.

Excellent news. Will certify that their novel lithium process is proven and tested independently. This will lead swiftly to licencing of the technology to many project owners across the world. I look at their IP indepth before investing, they actually cover all minerals bar scandium and are internationally protected. Major development today as it back up Management plan to take AXM to the highest level. This company will imo become THE IP Tech Mining company for Electric Vehicles. This is where they concentrate their vision on: Copper Lithium Cobalt Nickel Each vertical worth many hundreds of millions of dollars. on going royalty streams. all come together. over next 12 months. Very great times ahead for AXM Cesaro

nixalas: Apologies accepted- Would only risk on positive proof (phara cross read if passed phase 3) IMO these boys are only at phase 1 or 1A - Hence my comment - If I believed - Message now clear OK. Maybe I was a bit to cynical in original post!!

nixalas: 1. As a very recent joiner to ADVFN and this thread may I sugest you read a few books on investing before you show your lack of knowledge any further. Not a hunch - I said "if I believed the story but after years of DD following have stayed on the sidelines". 2. Spoke to Sutcliffe many years ago but body language did not jell. Have also spoken to Rosser on a number of accasions 3. Still following as low chance might do an IQE which dropped some 90%+ from 2000 and then bounced backed to give those who got their timing right a 10+ bagger PS. Re broker - New coy much better. temelco: Agreed but all big miners have research and development units so if any perceived value I would have expected them to have had a look at the technology and if any conceptual value to have run trials - Hence comment that petty cash to buy and see rather than taking a licence.

Pugugly. That's hysterical. Why would anyone risk everything on a hunch. If you've given up on the company several years ago and fired your broker why are you still posting on this board?

Pugugly - the mining industry is incredibly conservative. Until they can actually see a plant working and producing on an industrial scale, they won't move an inch, small change or not. As I said before, the first question is always, "Where is there a plant I can see?" Hence the over-arching importance of Sivas.

cesaro> IMO if AXM technology had any real value RIO or BHP would have bought with the petty cash - At current market cap just a decimal point round errorin their accounts- The fact that there has been no bid for the company says volumes about the technical value of the processes. I hope for your sake I am wrong but if I believed the story I would be inclined to sell everything including house and borrow a heap of dosh and buy the company -

Very important Patent secure for CHilean Market. Mr Rossers a clever man. Multi national like RIO and BHP in Chile will need AXM to pay the workers pay rise! Strikes cost Hundreds of Millions Dollars. AXM can save them Hundreds of Millions of Dollars. Very easy to see. I expect rapid progress Cesaro

HMV, your mention of congo is interesting to me, as i use to follow Glencore closely and they have it's own patent leaching technology, it differ in many ways and is a lot less cost efficent than ammleach. the potential for AXM is 90%+ of all other projects suitable for Ammleach is a Billion dollars number. point being is the market is ripe for AXM to take off finnally. three projects in near term congo projects that are not glencore will utilize AXM, there are many others in africa of course. Snowball effect is often used wrongly, but in this case it perfect use is right Cobalt,Nickel,Lithium in near term = many hundreds of millions of dollars. see the scope of this opportunity. i never see one as good before, in term of value on market to value of opportunity.

The Stigologist and others - fyi your post 4154 - Twas always thus From my database "Alexander Mining PLC File opened 3/4/06 re tel con with my then broker - name redacted to save his face - but fired many years ago . On his watch list as not moved price then 24p. The technology has and (imo) always be interesting but if any value would have been bought by a major masny years ago - or else could it be that the Company lacks sales skills? Unlikely as they seem to have presented multiple times. I suspect many on this board could buy the company at the current market cap of £2.63M or less than many houses in central London.

acquisition of Sivas project will be completed no later than 11th July 2018 when AXM get shares as well. Sivas project is expected to be in production in 2020 bringing in $10 million USD per annum. Accudo is not far behind. Its actually close. Both projects are now competing with each other on timeline for production. Funding for Accudo is almost there. Multicom project is also progressing and results are expected post September 2018 or thereabouts. Matters in Congo are also on the boil. AXM are well versed there and something may come to fruition there too this year. No wonder the meeting was upbeat. There is a very clear path to success and this share will be a £1 plus in a few years when its tech is rapidly adopted by the multinationals. Its a must have share. We should see 1p very soon.

Oh and I actually forgot perhaps the single most important thing. There is no value in their balance sheet ascribed to all the R&D and IP they have bought and paid for. According to BDO, as long as they do NOT have a working site, they cannot add any of this to their balance sheet. But the minute they do, they can. So when Sivas goes live....Their CFO when questioned, agreed that the sums involved were not " hundreds of thousands" but "millions"
