Why Invest in QMC Energy Metals?

  • The era of the lithium ion battery is still in its infancy – the next decade will see massive growth at every level of the supply chain.
  • Rapidly growing market driven by growth in electric vehicles and falling cost of production of lithium-ion batteries.
  • Electric car revolution is just starting - dozens of other new electric car models reportedly on the way from GM, Ford, Hyundai, Volkswagen, Subaru, Volvo, Mercedes, others.
  • More Giga factories potentially being built (LG, Volkswagen, Mercedes, China).
  • Volkswagen says it will turn out three million electric vehicles a year within two years.
  • Goldman Sachs conservatively expects demand for lithium to triple by 2025.
  • Large storage batteries for wind and solar farms, ie. Aliso Canyon (California) 326MWh of lithium ion-batteries and Hornsdale (Australia) 129MWh.

What Separates QMC from the rest?

  • Location, location, location, projects in world-class belts; mine ready for production
  • Low cost of production and existing infrastructure.
  • Demand of lithium. EV sales are projected to soar ten-fold over the next six-years (Audi, Telus, Ford, Volkswagen, BMW, Mercedes, Volvo, etc.)
  • Energy storage major emerging trend, Tesla’s large-scale storage battery for utilities.
  • To lock in control of lithium concentrate (the shippable product of hard rock mining), Chinese buyers spent $130 million to buy a milling plant on the most historically productive lithium resource in North America. QMC lies just 12.3 miles from the milling plant
  • QMC Quantum Minerals historically evaluated 1.2 million tons of high-grade lithium ore. New resource calculation is expected to be released soon.
  • Mining infrastructure in place, shipments trucked short distance to the milling plant.
  • QMC steps away from production.
  • In discussions with facilities that can process the lithium on QMC’s behalf (locally and abroad).
  • 11,325 lithium-rich acres with the Irgon, Mapetre and Central dikes making up only a small portion of our land package.
  • 5M+ tonne potential ($2B+ lithium concentrate)
  • Near term production.
  • Low CAPEX and developed infrastructure:
    • Provincial Highway 314 transects the property; rail, water and electricity.
    • TANCO Mine to the south is able to process ore.
    • Ore can also be shipped to China for processing.
  • High-grade lithium.
  • Economic historical resource of 1.2M tonnes grading 1.51% Li2O (est. 236,000 tonnes of 6% lithium concentrate, $345M gross).
  • Additional dikes along, north and south of the Irgon Dike increase historical tonnage.
  • Central and Mapetre drill core analysis confirmed additional tonnage (core provided by TANCO).
  • Mining friendly province of Manitoba.
  • Additional minerals such as Tantalum ($150/kg) and Cesium available in the same ore.
  • Three NDAs in place with China-based firms.
  • Samples sent for processing into concentrate with Guangxi Non-Ferrous Limu Mining Co. Ltd. in China.
  • 5M+ tonnes ($2B+ of lithium concentrate).
  • Rocky-Lake and Namew projects surrounded by existing mines.
  • Rocky-Lake and Namew drilling found a new discovery of copper-gold-nickel.
  • VMS deposit in world-class mining belt.

 

Why Invest in QMC Precious Metals?

    • Located in the world-class Flin Flon/Snow Lake mining district, just 11km SW of Nanew Lake Mine that produced 2.57 million tonnes of copper, nickel, gold, silver, palladium and platinum.
    • The region itself hosts 27 deposits, including gold, and is currently home to nine operating mines. The projects involve Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (VMS) deposits, which are one of the richest sources of metals such as copper, lead, gold, and zinc globally. Currently, global metal production from VMS deposits account for 22% of zinc, 9.7% of lead, 6% of copper, 8.7% of silver, and 2.2% of gold.
    • The Flin Flon district is established with roads, power, water, concentrator/mills, and an experienced workforce.
    • 100% owned, 22,000 acres.
    • QMC drilling intersected a 10m (33 ft) thick semi-massive sulphide section with grades of 61 ppb gold, 4,617 ppm copper,198 ppm zinc and upto 26% iron.
    • A 2nd second (RL 11-2) hit the top of massive sulphide intersection, returning 8 ppb gold, 2,594 ppm copper, 300 ppm zinc and 15% iron over 0.3m (1 ft).
    • Highly-visible chalcopyrite seen in drill core.
    • 41+ main targets identified and developed by the Company including PEM and VTEM Airborne surveys.
    • Peak Gold: leading experts, such as Goldcorp’s CEO, believe that there are no more large gold deposits to be discovered.

Central banks are buying record amounts of gold as a hedge against uncertainty. Russia and China are the biggest buyers.
