Cobalt Market Continues to Rise

Cobalt Market Continues to Rise News Commentary

PR Newswire

NEW YORK, April 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ —

The demand for new energy sources has propelled innovation in recent years and this has led to more efficient clean energy sources being introduced to old industries. One of the more prominent examples is the rechargeable battery market which has drastically changed, thanks the wider roll lithium and cobalt markets. Cobalt-based lithium-ion batteries are now widely used to power electric and hybrid vehicles. According to a report by Reuters, Consultants CRU Group said electric car and plug-in hybrid vehicle sales could hit 4.4 million in 2021 and more than six million by 2025, from 1.1 million last year. Prices for the cobalt metal are now at about 25 USD/lb which is an increase of about 92% since 6 months ago. Earlier in October 2016, the price of Cobalt was around 13 USD/lb. Scientific Metals Corp. (OTC: SCTFF) (TSX-V: STM), Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (NYSE: FCX), FMC Corp. (NYSE: FMC), Honda Motor Co., Ltd. (NYSE: HMC), Ford Motor Co. (NYSE: F).

“Future demand for cobalt from the EV (electric vehicle) sector is looking tangible and is more positive than originally expected,” one commodity-focused fund manager said according to Reuters. “China has some aggressive plans in terms of electric vehicles. It will be a major driver behind cobalt consumption growth.” The U.S. government has also realized the potential of the metal, as Cobalt is also widely used for superalloys in turbines, space vehicles, rocket engines and power plants. Earlier in 2014, the U.S.’s Defense Logistics Agency deemed lithium cobalt oxide and lithium nickel cobalt aluminum oxide compounds as strategic and has been stockpiling since then.

Scientific Metals Corp. (OTCQB: SCTFF) (TSX-V: STM) announced yesterday that the Company has launched its 2017 exploration program at the Iron Creek Cobalt Project, initially commencing with the rehabilitation of the underground workings.

The Company is finalizing plans with a claim staking contractor to expand the size of the property through claim staking, and will commence claim staking soon, as the snow pack melt allows. Surface and underground drilling campaigns are in the final stages of planning, and will follow underground and surface mapping and sampling programs. All work will be conducted on the patented lode mining claims which cover the historic claims which have already been identified. Please see Company news release dated September 7, 2016 for a summary of the project.

The Company has commenced the rehabilitation of the portals to three underground tunnels which currently have a combined length of 1,500 feet and access the mineralized zones. The first portal (Adit #1) now has new timbers installed at the surface, and access has been gained to the entire length of tunnels connected to Adit #1. Further rehabilitation of the tunnels will be completed prior to the planned underground sampling and mapping program which will be followed by underground drilling. A contractor has been selected to complete the underground drilling.

The Company is in the final stages of negotiations with drilling contractors to conduct surface core drilling on the patented lode mining claims, targeting the known mineralized zones during 2017. This drilling is designed to confirm the historic, already identified, cobalt mineralization, and to explore for extensions. As previously announced, these historic resources which do not conform to NI 43-101, contain 1,279,000 tons grading 0.59% cobalt – see Company news release dated September 7, 2016. The Company has the advantage of working from the results of the 30,000 feet of drilling that identified the historic resources.

Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (NYSE: FCX) earlier in 2016 announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to sell its interests in TF Holdings Limited (TF Holdings) to China Molybdenum Co., Ltd. (CMOC) for $2.65 billion in cash and contingent consideration of up to $120 million, consisting of $60 million if the average copper price exceeds $3.50 per pound and $60 million if the average cobalt price exceeds $20 per pound, both during the 24-month period between 2018 and 2019. In addition, FCX has agreed to negotiate exclusively with CMOC to enter into definitive agreements to sell its interests in Freeport Cobalt, including the Kokkola Cobalt Refinery in Finland for $100 million and the Kisanfu Exploration project in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) for $50 million. Freeport Cobalt includes the large-scale cobalt refinery located in Kokkola, Finland, and related worldwide sales and marketing business, in which FCX holds an effective 56 percent interest. Kisanfu is a copper and cobalt exploration project, located near Tenke in which FCX holds a 100 percent interest.

FMC Corp. (NYSE: FMC) serves the global agricultural, industrial and consumer markets with innovative solutions, applications and quality products. The company operates its businesses in three segments: FMC Agricultural Solutions, FMC Health and Nutrition and FMC Lithium. On February 9th the company announced that it has received an A- from the CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project) climate change program, an initiative dedicated to using measurement and disclosure to effectively manage carbon and climate change risk. The A- ranking places FMC in CDP’s ‘Leadership’ tier, recognizing the company as a leader in best practices for climate change action after its first time reporting.

Honda Motor Co., Ltd. (NYSE: HMC) develops, manufactures and markets motorcycles, automobiles and power products across the world. The Company’s segments include Motorcycle Business, Automobile business, financial services business, and Power product and other businesses. On March 23rd, Japan Post Co., Ltd. and Honda Motor Co., Ltd. began discussions and signed a memorandum of understanding concerning the development and establishment of social infrastructure through postal deliveries using electric motorcycles (hereinafter collectively called “electric vehicles”) which will serve as an alternative to the current gasoline-powered delivery motorcycles.

Ford Motor Co. (NYSE: F) is a global automotive and mobility company based in Dearborn, Michigan. The company’s core business includes designing, manufacturing, marketing and servicing a full line of Ford cars, trucks and SUVs, as well as Lincoln luxury vehicles. To expand its business model, Ford is aggressively pursuing emerging opportunities with investments in electrification, autonomy and mobility. On April 10th, Ford revealed the second of 13 new electrified vehicles the company plans to introduce in the next five years. The industry’s first pursuit-rated hybrid police car, the all-new Ford Police Responder Hybrid Sedan, is part of a $4.5 billion Ford investment to make electric vehicles that give customers greater capability, productivity and performance.

Mobile Payment Market Continues to Quickly Evolve Behind Exponential Growth Across The Globe

Mobile Payment Market Continues to Quickly Evolve Behind Exponential Growth Across The Globe

PR Newswire

PALM BEACH, Florida, April 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — News Commentary 

The mobile payment market continues to be one of the more interesting sectors as it continues its steady growth and acceptability with more consumers around the globe adapting to mobile payment conveniences. Development and expansion opportunities for mobile payment technologies continues to advance for companies such as: Glance Technologies Inc. (OTC: GLNNF) (CSE: GET.CN), PayPal Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: PYPL), Square, Inc. (NYSE: SQ), Alibaba Group (NYSE: BABA), Global Payments Inc. (NYSE: GPN).

Glance Technologies Inc. (OTCQB: GLNNF) (CSE: GET.CN) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a letter of intent to create an app that will target international Chinese students visiting and residing in North America with a company that founds and finances businesses targeted to Chinese residents in Canada, with its principal shareholder also the largest shareholder and a director of the newest tier 1 bank in Canada.

The parties plan to incorporate a new company which will purchase a license from Glance Technologies to use the Glance Pay payment system into a new mobile payment platform to cater to the growing population of international Chinese students visiting and residing in Canada. Glance Technologies will provide development work to the new company and will be a significant owner of it. The joint venture partner will be responsible for raising sufficient financing for the new venture to create, develop, market and operate the new venture. The new application will be available in Mandarin and English. Read this and more news for Glance Technologies at:

Given the exponential growth and integrated adoption of mobile payments in recent years in China and the rise of behemoth mobile payment service giants, such as Alipay, Tenpay, and China Union, it is clear that the ability to pay through mobile applications has become commonplace for Chinese consumers and this is moving beyond China and into spending at overseas destinations, such as Canada and the US. Alipay, China’s top mobile payment service of over 450 million users worldwide recently surpassed a record high of a billion transactions, of which 71% of these transactions were conducted on a mobile device.

This growth coupled with the acknowledgment of Canada as a fast-growing tourist destination for Chinese visitors, contributing over $1 billion annually to the Canadian economy, and ranked at the 7th most popular academic destination for Chinese students, opens an entirely new market share for Glance to provide its integrated payment technology via the Glance Pay app at Canadian restaurants, retail stores, and merchant services. Glance is looking to market and provide its innovative payment processing app to an increasing population of international Chinese students living and studying in Canada, so students looking for the same ease and convenience of mobile payments already found China can access a similar payment experience right here in Canada.
