Guten Tag,

ich habe im Zuge eines anders Lithiuminvestments in der Vergangenheit bereits auf Global Geoscience und deren Lithium-Boron Project "Rhyolite Ridge" in Nevada verwiesen. Im Zuge der anhaltenden Marktkorrektur habe ich mich entschlossen eine entsprechende Diskussion hier auf WO zu erstellen.

Suite 203, 161 Walker Street
North Sydney, NSW 2060
Telephone: +61 2 9922 5800

"Global Geoscience is focused on developing the 100%-owned Rhyolite Ridge Lithium-Boron Project in Nevada, USA:

Strategic location: stable, mining friendly jurisdiction and close to existing infrastructure
Large and scaleable: near-surface 460 Mt Resource contains 4.1 Mt of lithium carbonate and 11.3Mt of boric acid
Advanced project: Pre-Feasibility Study is well underway.
Rhyolite Ridge has excellent potential to rapidly become a strategic, long-life, low-cost source of lithium and boron.

Global Geoscience is based in North Sydney, Australia and listed on the Australian SecuritiesExchange (ASX:GSC)."


Diese ist wirklich sehr gut gemacht und enthält sehr viele Zusatzinformationen,
die ich hier im Thread nicht in der Form abbilden kann.

Einen Punkt möchte ich an dieser Stelle noch adressieren:

14-Jun-2018 Successful Completion of A$53 Million Placement

13-Jun-2018 A$53 Million Fully Underwritten Placement to Advance Rhyolite Ridge Lithium-Boron Project

Dieses letzte überzeichnete Placement wurde zu A$0.41 durchgeführt (keine Warrants) und somit deutlich über dem aktuellen Kurs von A$0.275. Gem. dem letzten verlinkten Video verfügt GCC aktuell über Barmittel von ca. A$80 Millionen (ab min 6:47) die ausreichend sein werden bis zur Produktionsentscheidung, sprich Abschluss der PFS sowie DFS. Es ist somit von keiner zusätzlichen Verwässerung auszugehen.

Final List of Critical Minerals 2018

Auch wenn Boron - anders als Lithium - in dieser Liste nicht als solches geführt wird (für die heimische US Wirtschaft nicht von großer Bedeutung), so stellt das Vorhandensein dennoch eine Besonderheit für das Projekt dar. Defakto handelt es sich in diesem Fall nicht um ein Beiprodukt im klassischen Sinne, sondern vielmehr nimmt Boron die Rolle eines Koproduktes ein = "a two product project".

"Boron may not be well-known, but it can still be found in pretty much everything."

Ich möchte hier auf die auf der Website zur Vefügung gestellten Informationen verweisen.

"Supply of Boron / Demand of Boron

Boron is widely distributed but rarely found in economic concentrations.

Deposits of borates are associated with volcanic activity and arid climates, with the largest economically viable deposits located in the Mojave Desert of the United States, the Alpide belt in southern Asia, and the Andean belt of South America.

The supply of boron is dominated by two companies:

- Rio Tinto plc from the Boron Mine in California (the only major mine in production in the USA)
- Eti Maden AS from several mines in Turkey (with exclusive, nation-wide rights to mining borates)

Rio Tinto and Eti Maden each have an approximately a 40% share or more of the boron market. The balance of production is mostly from various suppliers in China, Argentina, Chile and Russia. None of these suppliers is capable of dramatic expansions in production capacity.

With Turkey having roughly 73% of global boron reserves, Eti Maden is likely to remain the leader in the borates industry.

Geographically, boron demand is dominated by Asia (46%) and North America (32%)."


Further Information on Boron

For an interesting summary of boron, see the infographic on the Visual Capitalist website “Boron: Making Modern Life Possible”. http://www.visualcapitalist.com/boron-making-modern-life-pos…

Or you can listen to very informative short (23 minute) podcast https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0380gs4 or longer (43 minute) podcast https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02tfc07 on boron produced by the BBC World Service.

Good information on the distribution of boron deposits and geology is available in “Borates in a Nutshell" http://www.mininggeologyhq.com/borates-in-a-nutshell/ from MiningGeologyHQ.com.


Was den Boron Markt betrifft, so kann man von einem Oligopol sprechen, sprich einem Markt der von einigen wenigen Großunternehmern beherrscht wird. Ich würde nicht ausschließen, dass Global Geoscience zu einem Zeitpunkt X ein Übernahmeziel von Rio Tinto werden könnte - wenn PFS/DFS entsprechend positiv ausfallen. Dies nicht zuletzt auch wegen der geographischen Nähe zum bestehenden Betrieb in CA. Eine Distanz von 400km ist für amerikanische Verhältnisse als gering einzuschätzen. Das Distributionsnetzwerk u.a. über den Hafen Los Angeles/Long Beach ist vorhanden.

Weitere nützliche Informationen sind auf https://www.borax.com/ zu finden.

3-May-2018 Optimisation Success Leads to Further Significant Reductions in Leach Time and Acid Consumption

23-May-2018 Successful Completion of Phase 1 of Rhyolite Ridge PFS

6-June-2018 Development Plans Unveiled for the Rhyolite Ridge Lithium-Boron Project

"The critical trade-off studies demonstrate a clear path forward for the project, and highlight the potential for Global Geoscience's (GSC) Rhyolite Ridge to be a major, low-cost producer of lithium and boron in an environmentally sustainable manner that uses self-generated, zero-carbon power and minimises both water useage and surface disturbance. According to the company and with the critical trade-off analysis completed, the Pre-Feasibility Study is on track to be completed in mid-2018 with the outcomes scheduled to be released in Q3 2018"

3-August-2018 Start-up Phase of Mining to Target Higher Lithium Grades to Increase Cashflow in Early Years

"Recently completed work has focused on optimising for early cashflow by exploiting shallow, higher lithium grades in the start-up phase of mining and has subsequently identified a potential south start-up pit that has significant advantages over the north start-up option."

Wie in der vollständigen Mitteilung genannt, ist dies alles nicht final und kann sich im Laufe der weiteren Studien und auf Basis weiterer Information ändern. Dennoch schätze ich es, dass man die Aktionäre über aktuelle Entwicklungen und Erkenntnisse informiert. So bevorzugt man, anders als in meinem ersten Post dargestellt, inzwischen auch Vat Leaching gegenüber Heap Leaching aufgrund der höheren Gewinnungsraten, Zeitersparnis und besser Steuerbarkeit des Leaching Vorgangs.

Auf HotCopper war vor einer Weile die Rede davon, dass die PFS in der 1. Septemberwoche veröffentlicht werden soll, jedoch ließ man offen woher diese Information stammt. Insofern ist diese Aussage mit Vorischt zu genießen. Ich gehe aber davon aus, dass diese auch tatsächlich im Q3 2018 veröffentlicht wird was einen wichtigen Meilenstein darstellt für GSC.

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 58.484.292 von phobieeee am 19.08.18 19:57:05Schöne Zusammenfassung....

spannend: Insiderbeteiligung, institutionelle Anleger, USA

Marketcap von 382 Mio. $ ist aber sportlich und klarer Abwärtstrend

geht auf die WL

Gute Trades!
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 58.484.406 von N.Y. am 19.08.18 20:27:27Danke dir @N.Y. ! Es freut mich zu hören, dass dir meine Vorstellung des Wertes gefällt.

Nach der schönen Gegenbewegung gestern ist der Kurs heute in Australien wieder etwas unter Druck geraten. Wichtig wird es sein die A$ 0.30 zu halten bzw. auf diesem Level zu konsolidieren und einen neuen Boden einzuziehen bis zur Veröffentlichung der PFS.

Ich hatte vor Handelseröffnung am Montag zwei Kauforder an der ASX eingestellt zu A$0.27 bzw. A$ 0.28, welche ich jedoch dann in anbetracht der exorbitant hohen Orderkosten meines Brokers wieder gestrichen habe. Ausgeführt worden wären diese jedoch auch nicht, da der erste Kurs bei $0.285 lag und seither auch nicht unterschritten wurde.

Bitte informiert euch vorher über die Konditionen eures Brokers beim Kauf an der ASX.

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 58.484.406 von N.Y. am 19.08.18 20:27:27Ein Punkt der im Zusammenhang mit Nevada immer wieder thematisiert wird sind die Wassernutzungsrechte. Global Geoscience hat sich diese bereits im September 2017 für 20 Jahre gesichert mit entsprechender Option auf Verlängerung bzw. Erwerb selbiger.

GSC secured water rights for the Rhyolite Ridge project in September 2017. The company has entered into an exclusive 20 year lease for 1.2+ gigalitres of water per year. GSC has the right to renew the lease for an additional 79 years after the initial 20 year period, and also has an option to purchase the rights at any time.

The allotment of 1.2 gigalitres of water per year is equivalent to 38 litres of water per second, and will provide more than sufficient capacity for the proposed production options. For context, a brine operation producing 20,000 tonnes of lithium carbonate per annum typically requires 20 litres of water per second.
