Mag One Products Inc:  Acquisition of Additional Serpentinite Tailings

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA/26 JUNE 2017MAG ONE PRODUCTS INC. (“Mag One,” or the “Company”), released today that it has successfully acquired the rights to process additional serpentinite tailings, located in Thetford Mines, QC, which is only 35 miles away from the Company’s other serpentinite tailings stockpile, located adjacent to Mine Jeffrey.

Historical Estimate
The Company has not done sufficient work to classify this historical estimate as a current mineral resource. The Company has acquired the rights to the NI 43.101 Technical Report on Resources Estimation associated with these tailings in Thetford Mines and treating it as an historical estimate.  The report focused on the nickel content in the tailings of special interest are the following oxide contents of magnesia and silica along with nickel found in the serpentinite tailings: 

MgO 38% (23% Magnesium)
SiO2 39% (18% Silicon)
Ni 0.23%
 
Class Tonnage %Ni %Ni SolHCl Specific Gravity % MgO % Cr % Fe
Measured 69,457,000 0.23 0.21 1.25 37.60 0.26 5.60
Indicated 49,257,000 0.24 0.22 1.25 38.82 0.25 5.97
Inferred 224,286,000 0.24 0.21 1.25 38.96 0.26 5.65
 
Measured and indicated 118,714,000 0.23 0.21 1.25 38.11 0.26 5.75

Resources all Piles Classified: Table 17, page 81 of the Technical Report Resource Estimation, April 2008 %Ni is the total nickel content analyzed while %Ni SolHCl refers to the percent nickel soluble by hydrochloric acid

The NI 43.101 report titled, “Technical Report: Resources Estimation of the Nickel Content in Tailings, Thetford Mines, Quebec, Canada” was commissioned by Nichromet Extraction Inc and issued on 30 April 2008 by Systèmes Géostat International Inc., #203 10 boul. De la Seigneurie E, Blainville, QC J7C3V5.  The authors of the report were: Maxime Dupéré geo. (still employed by Géostat), Claude Duplessis P.Eng., and Gilbert Rousseau P.Eng. The specific areas used in the preparation of the Report for the 60M tonnes of serpentinite tailings that the Company acquired, were in the Normandie, British Canada I, British Canada II, King Beaver, National and Lac d’Amiante areas of Thetford Mines. The Report and its findings are relevant to Mag One as the mineral content is expected to be similar to the serpentinite feed material used in the test work involving the Mine Jeffrey serpentinite tailings. The Company to the best of its knowledge believes that the tailings have not changed in size, quality or mineralization content. Most key to the Company are the findings of 18% Si and 23% Mg within the 60 million-tonne stockpile of serpentinite tailings.

A key excerpt from the Report states, “For this study, Géostat used all the technical data available from historical metallurgical processes.  Géostat supervised and collected data during the summer 2007, sonic drilling and test pits sampling program.  Claude Duplessis Eng. Visited the site on May 23rd and June 15, 2007 for the preparation of this technical report.  Maxime Dupéré worked at the site from June 14 to June 22.  To Geostat’s knowledge, it is the first NI.43.101 technical report written on the Normandie and Bell mines tailings piles.  There is no geological exploration concept here, the program was focused on measurement of the nickel content in the dry reject piles with specific assessment of the specific gravity to convert the volume of the tonnage since % Ni grades are expressed by weight from the laboratory.  The sampling and security procedures were installed and supervised by Maxime Dupéré and Claude Duplessis of Géostat during the summer of 2007 sonic drilling and test pits sampling program and are considered adequate.  Gilbert Rousseau Eng. Visited Nichromet’s laboratory in Sherbrooke with Dr. Lalancette in July where the process has been initially established. 

The Report further reports that the estimate used the stated pertinent categories, definitions and practices for the resource estimations set out in NI.43.101, Part I, Clauses 1.1 & 1.2. To the best of the Company’s knowledge, there are no recent updates to this Report as that issuer, switched its focus from Nickel to Gold projects, as such the Report was never made public. This historic resource estimate carried out in 2008 is based on prior data and reports obtained and prepared by previous owners and information provided by governmental authorities.

The Company has no imminent plans to do further work to verify the classification of the of the mineral resource estimates. The implied mineralization content and data contained in this Report are important for the Company’s technical team to consider employing the same processing strategy that will be undergoing pilot scale demonstration using the Jeffrey Mines’ tailings in short order.

Mag One’s President, Ms. Gillian Holcroft comments, “We are encouraged by the findings in the Report and hope to demonstrate the resource similarity of both stockpiles of serpentinite tailings”. As previously announced the Company engaged Jacques Marchand (a Québec Ingénieur Géologue Conseil and Qualified Person per NI 43-101) to produce a NI 43-101 Summary of Current and Scientific Technical Information for the Mines Jeffrey location. It is expected that this report will soon be submitted to Mag One management and subsequently published on SEDAR.

Mag One Products Inc. is a company that aims to be the diamond standard in the magnesium (Mg) market by concentrating on four initial projects at its processing/manufacturing plant sites in southern Quebec, Canada:    

  1. Assembly and sale of Mg-based structural insulated sheathing panels (ROK-ONIM) for building construction; 
  2. Production of high-purity SiO2, MgO, Mg(OH)2 and other saleable co-products and byproducts;
  3. Production of 99.9% pure Mg ingots; and
  4. Further commercialization work on its MagPower fuel cell/battery that supplies emergency power, light and recharging for disaster relief and other emergency situations on land and sea.

Key advantages that these four projects enjoy are Mag One’s advanced technologies, a modular processing plant expansion concept, and the Company’s easy, abundant access to tailings.
