A.I.S. Resources Limited ( TSX: AIS, OTCQB: AISSF ) (the "Company" or "AIS") and Tech One Lithium Resources Corporation ("Tech One"), is delighted to report that the Company has commenced exploration at the Candela II property at Incahuasi Salar (salt lake).

In summary, AIS earned a 20% interest in Mining Licence File Number 23262 covering 3 sq kilometres on the Incahuasi Salar in the lithium triangle in Argentina by negotiating the property, and developing an exploration and processing plan for Tech One. Initially a US$450,000 budget will be spent by Tech One on TEM geophysics, drilling and brine analysis. A 200 litre sample is being collected for Ekosolve the selected processor to process the brines at the University of Melbourne pilot facility, chemical engineering department in Australia.

Gangfeng Lithium, China's largest producer of the battery metal, Orocobre, a lithium producer in Argentina and PepinNini an ASX explorer all have mining licences on the Incahuasi Salar. Tech One Lithium Resources Corporation ("Tech One"), has optioned the Exploration license for 12 months to complete due diligence and further exploration work, and has the right to acquire 100% of the property for USD one million dollars (CAD1.3 million). The option fee paid by Tech One was US$100,000 and a further fee of US$100,000 payable by Tech One in six months time. AIS has received the first payment for exploration.

Previous explorers have sampled brines between 270-300ppm, from the top 50 metres of the Salar.

Fast Track Ekosolve Lithium Processing Facility
Tech One advises they have signed a facility fee agreement to utilize the Ekosolve™ lithium Solvent Exchange Extraction process that can efficiently manage the processing of the brines to produce lithium carbonate with a grade higher than 99.2% and a recovery of 97% far exceeding any ion exchange or adsorption process available to date. Ekosolve™ is licensed to University of Melbourne, Australia.

The key advantage of the Ekosolve system is the high rate of lithium yield at 97% and 95% of the solvent is reclaimed. Other systems such as adsorption achieve 72-80%, fractional crystallization 50-70%, and ion exchange up to 90%. In adsorption and ion exchange extra processes may be required to manage the magnesium and boron in the brines whereas this is not an issue with the Ekosolve process. Hence the capital and operation expenditure is usually much lower. There are no ponds required which is a more eco-friendly solution.

Green River Gold Corp. Extends the Depth at Its Quesnel Nickel/Magnesium Project and Releases Additional Assay Results from Previous Drilling

Green River Gold Corp. (CSE: CCR) (OTC Pink: CCRRF) (the "Company" or "Green River") is pleased to update the progress at the 2022 exploration drilling program at its Quesnel Nickel/Magnesium project, located 40 kilometers from the City of Quesnel, British Columbia, in the prolific Cariboo Mining District.

The first phase of the 2022 exploration drilling program consists of 3 drill holes, approximately 100 meters each, using a portable Winkie drill purchased by the Company late in 2021. The first hole, DD-22-01, was drilled to a depth of 185 feet before it was discontinued for technical reasons. The plan is to re-enter that hole and drill it to greater depth before the current program is complete. The Company has shifted its efforts to drilling the second hole of the 3-hole program. Once the rest of the snow has melted and ground conditions allow, Green River will also be drilling several other known talc outcroppings using a backpack drill. That part of the program will continue throughout the year and is intended to confirm the extent of the talc occurrence and determine whether the nickel, chromium and magnesium mineralization is consistent throughout. The known talc occurrences extend over a length of 1.4 kilometers. The Company will provide regular drilling updates throughout the year.

VIDEO — Mickey Fulp: I'm Bullish on Physical Gold and Farmland, Exiting Resource Juniors

Mickey Fulp VRIC

With the general markets in turmoil, Mercenary Geologist Mickey Fulp sees few places to turn.

"It's a difficult situation," he said at the recent Vancouver Resource Investment Conference (VRIC). "I am very bearish, not necessarily on commodity prices, but on the whole resource space and the ability of companies to explore, develop, produce — there's a variety of factors against that right now."

Those include resource nationalism, socialism, anti-development initiatives and green agendas, Fulp explained. Meanwhile, mining companies are seeing energy and labor costs pushed up by inflation.

Trump and the Gold Standard

Trump and the Gold Standard

The gold standard hasn’t been used in the US since the 1970s, but when Donald Trump was president there was some speculation that he could bring it back.

Rumors that the gold standard could be reinstated during Trump’s presidency, which ran from 2017 to 2021, centered largely on positive comments he made about the idea. Notably, the former US president suggested that it would be “wonderful” to bring back the gold standard, and a number of his advisors were of the same mind — Judy Shelton, John Allison and others also expressed support for the concept.

With Trump now out of office, is the US likely to return to the gold standard? And what would it mean if that happened? Read on to learn what the gold standard is, why it ended, what Trump said about bringing it back — and of course what could happen if it ever came into play again.
