BHP Billiton is on the hunt for its next big copper project

BHP Billiton is on the hunt for its next big copper project.

The world’s largest miner said it is looking to add more copper to its portfolio through exploration, as demand increases for the metal in renewable energy and electric cars.

It is open to forming alliances with junior mining companies, said Danny Malchuk, president of operations in the Americas.

“We want more copper resources in our portfolio,” Mr Malchuk said. “And we believe the most valuable pathway to achieving this is through exploration, the drill-bit.”

The company’s exploration portfolio consists of 79 projects covering 1.8m hectares, he said. BHP is looking at discoveries in Ecuador, Chile, Peru, the southwest of the US and Australia, he said.

“As BHP our thresholds are very high — we don’t settle for the regular Joe type of copper mine. We go for the big stuff,” Mr Malchuk said.

Miners are having to spend billions of dollars on their existing copper mines just to keep supply steady, as they dig ever deeper for supplies. That’s likely to lead to a deficit in supply by the beginning of the next decade, according to Mr Malchuk.

BHP has invested close to $10bn in its Escondida copper mine in Chile over the past five to six years to maintain production at around 1.2m tonnes a year.

The start of something GOOD! $OCO

I would say 99 times out of 100 when the ceo cleans up the market to the tune of 4 million shares something good is about to happen.

Oroco OCO.v has been dormant for years as has the larger venture market.  They have done a great job conserving capital during the downturn and are now actively seeking new advanced opportunities in Mexico.

Keep an eye on OCO it has been stepping up the chart and there is no reason it shouldn’t continue.

 

a .075 close will be a new 200 week high..something is afoot!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Global UAV Technologies consolidating leading holdings in UAV service sector

MININGWORLD

by Kathrine Moore

Over the last six months, Global UAV Technologies Ltd. [UAV-CSE; YRLLF-OTC; YAB2-FSE] has been significantly growing their Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) business. The company is headquartered in Vancouver, BC, with regional offices in Saskatchewan and Ontario. Global UAV Technologies’ stated strategy is to “dominate the UAV sector by consolidating a diverse group of companies to create a leading service provider.” The company has managed to do just exactly that; Global UAV Technologies is a company positioned to lead the growing UAV service sector in terms of expertise, development and services. In December 2016, Global UAV Technologies, through its wholly owned subsidiary Pioneer Aerial Surveys, acquired the world’s first commercially available, UAV-based magnetometer survey system called UAV-MAG ™.

The company states that the proprietary survey uses ultra-sensitive magnetic equipment to aid in the discovery of diamonds, gold, silver and other types of deposits. It has also been used on lithium properties. Pioneer Aerial came out of the gate at a full sprint – as they flew in excess of 900 line-km in their first full month of operation. They have since gone on to do surveys for a number of junior and mid-tier exploration companies as well as majors. In March 2017, Pioneer Aerial signed an agreement with Abitibi Geophysics, an international geophysics company, to establish a strategic partnership whereby Abitibi and Pioneer Aerial will operate on a revenue sharing basis for surveys organized by Abitibi. Those surveys will be branded as AeroVision™ and will use Pioneer Aerial’s UAV-MAG™ system.

Also in December of 2016, Global UAV Technologies announced the strategic acquisition of High Eye Aerial Imaging Ltd., a leading UAV surveying company that is using its fleet of multi rotor and fixed-wing UAVs to provide their clients such products as two dimensional and three dimensional ortho-mosaic images, mapping of remote sites, aerial surveys, volumetric calculations, digital elevation modeling, aerial inspections of areas that are difficult to access, as well as environmental assessment and monitoring images. High Eye recently completed their largest project to date for the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change. The total area covered was ~1,100 hectares.

 

High Eye provided aerial mapping topographical data for 36 km of shoreline in Georgian Bay, Ontario in order to determine the flood hazard limit elevation. In order to ensure that their subsidiaries are in good hands, Global UAV Technologies has retained highly specialized staff in both of the above mentioned companies. Global UAV Technologies recently reported that its first full quarter that incorporated the two subsidiaries generated $181,203 of revenue – an impressive start.

In May of this year, Global UAV Technologies further expanded their expertise and services by signing letters of intent with two more companies: Easy SFOC and NOVAerial Robotics. Easy SFOC is a regulatory consulting service that assists clients with the preparation of Special Flight Operation Certificates (SFOCs) for UAV operations in Canada. The company describes Easy SFOC as a web-based service that uses a proprietary, interface to collect information on a client’s site locations, operations, and crew information quickly and effi- ciently. “The client is then provided with full support and guidance along with a customized SFOC application ready to submit to Transport Canada.” NOVAerial manufactures and designs helicopter UAVs. Jason Springett, President of Global UAV Technologies said about NOVAerial, “We are very excited for the addition of NOVAerial to Global UAV Technologies.

NOVAerial is a dynamic company at the forefront of manufacturing, engineering and performance of the rapidly evolving, enterprise grade helicopter UAV sector…We will now have industry leading holdings in UAV service providers, manufacturing and engineering, and regulations, all of which are experiencing increased growth.” The company states that the purchase of NOVAerial includes “all the manufacturing equipment, designs and specifications, current inventory, existing orders and prototypes of new UAV designs that NOVAerial is currently developing.” Global UAV Technologies says that NOVAerial’s Procyon 800E, “is quickly becoming renowned for its performance, practical design, high-quality, made inhouse components and reliable flight control system.” The Procyon 800E’s compact design and construction make it reliable, easy to maintain and less expensive than similar UAVs. It is ideally suited, the company says, “for complicated and highperformance UAV applications, offering vertical take-off capability, while combining high speeds and long flight times not possible with multirotor UAVs.” NOVAerial Robotics Inc. is run by Robert Lefebvre, a mechanical engineer who is very well respected in the field of robotic aviation and a mentor for Google’s Summer of Code program.

GLOBAL UAV TECHNOLOGIES SIGNS DEFINITIVE AGREEMENT FOR THE PURCHASE OF NOVAERIAL ROBOTICS

GLOBAL UAV TECHNOLOGIES SIGNS DEFINITIVE AGREEMENT FOR THE PURCHASE OF NOVAERIAL ROBOTICS

Global UAV Technologies Ltd. has signed the definitive agreement for the purchase of a 100-per-cent interest in NOVAerial Robotics Ltd. (see news release dated May 25, 2017).

The company is purchasing the 100-per-cent undivided interest in NOVAerial Robotics for $300,000 in cash (with $10,000 having been paid on signing of the letter of intent) and the issuance of 4,584,527 common shares of Global UAV Technologies. The payment will be made from funds that the company currently has. The shares will be released per a three-year escrow period with the initial 10 per cent to be issued with a standard four-month hold period.

“I am very pleased to welcome Robert Lefebvre of NOVAerial to the Global UAV Technologies group. This acquisition represents a strategic step for Global UAV Technologies as we enter the business of design, engineering and production of professional grade UAVs. NOVAerial’s Procyon 800E is at the leading edge of both performance and cost compared to those of the closest market competitor,” stated Jason Springett, president of Global UAV Technologies.

“I am excited to join Global UAV Technologies, they have built an enviable group of high-quality individuals and companies with the goal of providing technical and high performance UAV services. This is exactly the market that NOVAerial builds products for. The synergy of having a manufacturer working directly with flight operators will result in better products and should open up new system and service offerings,” stated Robert Lefebvre, managing director of NOVAerial Robotics.

Closing is anticipated to take approximately two weeks, during which time all the appropriate filings will be made with the Canadian Securities Exchange, common shares of Global UAV Technologies will be issued per the escrow agreement, funds will be paid to the underlying shareholder of NOVAerial and the shares in NOVAerial will be formally transferred to Global UAV Technologies.

Three “company maker” targets for Beaufield

I think i have figured out the reason for the SP pop yesterday. The new BFD presentation has some very interesting new slides.

http://www.beaufield.com/investors/corporate-presentation

The reason no one cared about the rouleau drill results were they were sniffing up the wrong tree.

take a look at this slide with the NEW targets labelled as

“Untested high priority targets located within magnetic low features of the Windfall fold ”

within the windfall fold!?

coincident with depleted magnetite!?

those three blue dots could be company makers right there, i have never seen a bigger “drill me now” slide in my life..

this slide tells me all i need to know..

OSK wants us to succeed, any doubt they would stifle progress is now gone. and BFD has a probable extention of the main windfall deposit in the same fold structure

I really thought i was looking at an OSK slide for a second till i realized it was from the BFD deck.

here it is the best slide ive seen in a very long time!
