For the last 20 years, the author has been visiting mines, mineral fairs, and mineral dealers to purchase and self collect minerals from over 40 countries to date. One of his guiding inspirations was Peter Bancroft's excellent book Gem and Crystal Treasures which describes Bancroft's selection of the 100 localities for the worlds best mineral specimens. This essay will describe some of the background and history of famous localities, and the minerals found there. It is

Resurgent US oil industry priming the economic pump
Crude oil prices dropped from $110 a barrel in the summer of 2014 to about $30 in January 2016. The effect on oil producers and oil-producing countries was dramatic. The Russian ruble plunged, and the Canadian dollar slipped to below 70 cents US for the first time since 2003, kicking the country into recession and snuffing out the oil boom in Alberta. Many foreign companies operating in the high-cost Canadian oil sands pulled up stakes. One of the hardest hit countries was Venezuela, whose petr

Wow, I can hardly believe it's been nine years. Where the heck has the time gone, and where the heck is Freegold? ;D A little more than two years ago, I changed format to an NFF (not-for-free) blog in order to keep me enthused and engaged, and more importantly, to keep out the trolls. I wished FOA had done that rather than quitting, so that's how I view it. I have hundreds of subscribers, and when they quit, so will I. The Freegold Speakeasy now has 100 posts and 20,000 comments.

Will the Electric Car Revolution Sink Platinum and Palladium
Everyone has probably heard about the upcoming electric car revolution whose vanguard is Tesla Motors led by Elon Musk. The electric car is actually nothing new – the first vehicles were produced as long ago as in the 1880s. However, the mass production of cheaper gasoline vehicles triggered by Henry Ford put electric cars into limbo for decades. But this can change quickly thanks to the rapidly falling costs. As one can see in the chart below, the price of a battery pack declined from $1000 per

The Most Beautiful Metal
Vanadium is a soft, silvery gray, ductile transition metal and is the 22nd most abundant element in the Earth’s crust. Vanadium in not found by itself, instead it’s most often found in chemically combined forms occurring in about 65 different minerals and has been historically mined as a by-product of other mining operations. Vanadium is primarily obtained from the minerals vanadinite (Pb5(VO)3Cl) and carnotite (K2(UO2)2VO4·1-3H2O). It is found in magnetite (iron oxide) deposits that are als

Mining the NEXT big metal in lithium-ion batteries
Jeff Nielson, Stockhouse 0 Comments| 1 day ago Once upon a time, when junior mining companies raised capital most of that money went into the ground. Times have changed. Today, most of the capital raised by junior miners is often eaten up in general administration costs. Some mining companies, however, retain that “old-fashioned” approach to conserving shareholder capital. Manganese X Energy Corp. (TSX: V.MN, OTCQB: SNCGF, Forum) is one company who still believes that sh

Manganese X Energy Corp. Is Energy Storage Critical
China controls almost 100% of the world’s supply of electrolytic manganese metal (EMM) The three factors are climate change, renewable energy and U.S. Foreign Policy. With heated rhetoric coming from both sides, and both countries navies flexing muscles in the disputed waters of the South and East China Seas, China and the U.S. seem to be on a collision course. However both the 1943 Cairo Declaration and 1945 Potsdam Declaration state that Japan will return to China all Chinese ter

Richard Mills The US government has classified manganese as a strategic metal. Manganese has no substitute metals in its many steel and alloying applications and has itself (EMM) become a substitute for other more expensive metals in certain alloys. Manganese can also replace the more costly nickel alloy used in stainless steel. Electrolytic manganese metal (EMM) is a refined manganese product produced through electrolysis of a manganese rich solution. Manganeseis NOT mined in North Ameri

Manganese Is Energy Critical
In 1917 the War Industries Board (WIB) noted that the United States was deficient in certain minerals of great importance to war making and self defense. A pre-World War II list of materials contained a total of 29 materials: 14 were strategic materials that ‘must be based entirely or in substantial part on sources outside the United States.’ There were 15 critical materials that would be easier to source, perhaps even domestically, than the strategic materials. The 1939 Strategic Materials A

The Missing Link
Pollution and climate change are key drivers for the global adoption of clean renewable energy – solar, wind and tidal – but the high cost of solar installations and the lack of economically efficient storage batteries has held back widespread adoption of clean renewable energy. Climate change In the past million years, the Earth has experienced a major ice age about every 100,000 years. This temporary reprieve from the ice we are now experiencing is called an interglacial period - the
