Chasing Tesla: Who Controls The Supply Chain For The Energy rEVolution - 20 Lithium Megafactories Are Coming.



Benchmark Mineral Intelligence has launched another blockbuster event covering the Lithium rEVolution - Cathodes 2017. Simon Moores and his team are the best in connecting the rapid growth of Electric Cars and Energy Storage industries with in-depth analysis of supply chains which are making this Energy rEVolution happening. Tesla has brought the earthquake to the auto industry, Elon Musk is "thinking hard about new Gigafactories number 3, 4, 5 and 6"; but there are already another 19 are in the making.

This month Simon has delivered his message to the US Senate - access to the critical commodities will define the new geopolitical power set for the 21st century. Billions of dollars in investments in the whole battery supply chain are needed urgently just to keep access to the raw materials. Private companies in the West like Tesla are competing with The New Energy Plan in China.







While the Old Empire was fighting wars protecting the Oil blood flowing in the world economy, state-level planning in China has been building the totally new landscape for the economic growth in the Post Carbon Economy. One by one all critical bottlenecks in the new supply chains were taken under control. The ICE Age is over and new players are taking over. This geopolitical tectonic shift after Tesla earthquake is happening very fast, the Tsunami of Electric Cars is coming and lithium is the magic metal at the very heart of this energy rEVolution.






Lithium Race And Energy rEVolution: Reds Are Going Green - Electric Cars Are A Hit With Chinese Consumers.





Wall Street Journal made a very good report on the electric cars rEVolution which is happening today in China. The video report is stressing that all this success is the result of the industrial policy by the government in China. We have The New Energy Plan for the transition to Post Carbon Economy in action in China on a state level. With announcements from GM and Ford embracing electric cars, we have some hope in the West now not to be left in the poisonous DIEsel and Gas ICE Cars dust as well. 


As you know, I have been preaching for years that security of lithium supply will be the most important factor determining the competitive advantage among different producers of critical raw materials for the Energy rEVolution. This Lithium Race will have the very far-reaching geopolitical implications. Now it looks like that Tesla is realizing that there is no secure supply of lithium for its massive expansion of operations from the underneath of Gigafactory floor in Nevada. Even if Panasonic is producing cathode for lithium cells which are made at Tesla Gigafactory in Nevada the supply chain is going all over the globe and back to China.


The real test to the market and supply chains for Energy rEVolution will come with the coming tide of Electric Cars and the following tsunami of Energy Storage. Bloomberg has recently reported that there will be more than 120 models of electric cars by 2020 and you should not be surprised as we have discussed here before that there are more than 70 models of electric cars on sale in China already. The next few years will determine who will have the keys to the new Energy rEVolution and control the supply chains. Hungry Dragons are flying high already and mostly in China, the question remains who and how will feed them without fear of being burnt in the process. 






Lithium Race: The Switch Is On - China Sets New Deadline For Electric Car Quota From 2019.




We have finally actual steps taken by China in its transition into the Post Carbon Economy and leaving literally The ICE Age in the poisonous dust behind. China is The Centre of The Lithium Universe and now they are ready to start geopolitical shift which will affect everything. BYD is talking about China going all electric from 2030, but today we have the first major step in that direction with an introduction of a quota for electric cars from 2019. In short two years time, all automakers in China with over 30,000 cars in annual sales will have to produce at least 10% electric cars. It can be translated in over 2.8 million new electric cars in China being sold in 2019! Last year China has seen the fastest growth pace in three years with total auto sales climbing to 28.03 million cars. From 2020 automakers will have to produce 12% of electric cars.

Now we have a better understanding why Ganfeng Lithium: JV partner of International Lithium - was going vertical last few months. This kind of news is travelling very fast in the state corridors of power in China. This geopolitical move will have very wide political and economic implications as we have discussed it here for a long time. China is very well positioned to take the lead now and the ICE Age Of Oil is officially over.



We are reaching the tipping point this year: convergence of technology, new players who bring competition and prices down; and anti-pollution movement by the most important countries for the automakers. DIEselGate was the last drop and auto lobby cannot just swipe it under the rug anymore, consumers are not buying "Clean DIEsel".





Needless to say that lithium supply chains are not even close to the coming Tsunami of electric cars after Tesla Model S Earthquake. Countries like China and India are very serious to clean up their skies from deadly pollution and now we have lithium technology to make it possible: electric cars will take the world over much faster than a lot of people think.

Electrification of China and India will drive the next phase of the worldwide growth in EV fleet. India has announced that all new cars on sale will be electric by 2030 and they are taking it seriously making the first tender for 10,000 EVs to be supplied for the government ministries and agencies now. Transfer of the best technology for Lithium Batteries and Electric Cars will be next. China is already The Centre of The Lithium Universe and exercises its state-level New Energy Plan step by step with the military discipline, starting with securing a Lithium Supply Chain.

TNR Gold:

TNR Gold Royalty Holding Update After News by McEwen Mining On The Los Azules Copper Project, Argentina.

Vancouver B.C. October 10, 2017:  TNR Gold Corp. (TSX-V: TNR) (“TNR” or the “Company”) advises that McEwen Mining Inc. (NYSE:MUX, TSX:MUX) (“McEwen Mining”) has issued a news release “Copper Shines Brightly for McEwen Mining – Enhanced Economics of Los Azules” dated  September 7, 2017 in relation to the Los Azules Copper Project in San Juan Province, Argentina. TNR holds a 0.36% Net Smelter Returns Royalty (“NSR”) on the Los Azules project.
The news release issued by McEwen Mining summarizes the results of a new Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) on its wholly-owned Los Azules Copper Project. In its press release, McEwen Mining states, “The 2017 PEA is a substantial revision of the previous 2013 PEA and contemplates an enhanced implementation strategy resulting in improved economics while reducing execution risk. It envisions an owner-operated mine and conventional concentrator (flotation circuit) producing a copper concentrate for export.”
Summary
$2.2 Billion After-Tax NPV@8% and IRR of 20.1%
3.6 Year Payback at $3.00/lb. Copper and 36 Year Mine Life
415 Million lbs. Average Annual Copper Production For The First 10 Years
$1.11/lb. Copper Average Cash Production Cost (C1) For First 10 Years
“Los Azules is a giant porphyry copper deposit that offers tremendous potential to generate wealth for McEwen Mining shareowners and other stakeholders,” said Rob McEwen, Chairman and Chief Owner. “Our next steps are to advance permitting and prefeasibility/feasibility studies to move Los Azules towards production.”
 “We would like to congratulate McEwen Mining on a significant increase in the new resource estimations for copper, gold and silver at Los Azules Copper project, important upgraded quality of these resources in all categories and reported enhanced economics overall for the project,” commented Kirill Klip, Executive Chairman of TNR. “The PEA provided by McEwen Mining demonstrates a robust, high margin, rapid pay-back and long-life potential economics for the project and it will affect positively the potential implied valuation of TNR Gold’s royalty holding.”
The McEwen Mining news release reports that the PEA study used commodity price assumptions of $3.00/lb copper, $1,300/oz gold, and $17/oz silver, resulting in an after-tax Net Present Value (NPV) of $2.2 billion (discounted at 8%) and an Internal Rate of Return (IRR) of 20.1%.
McEwen Mining also stated, “The project economics for Los Azules contemplates two years of permitting, drilling, and feasibility studies; followed by a three year project implementation phase for production of the first copper concentrates. The economic values presented in the 2017 PEA are after-tax financial outcomes at the point of commencing the project implementation phase. The key financial results are summarized in Table 1 and Figure 1.

Mineral Resource Estimate
The estimated mineral resources for the Los Azules deposit are shown in Table 2. Mineral resources are determined using a base case cut-off grade of 0.20% copper, which is based on projected technical and economic parameters.

Cu = copper, Au = gold, Mo = molybdenum, Ag = silver
The mineral resource estimate for Los Azules was prepared utilizing three-dimensional block models based on geostatistical applications. The mineral resources are estimated using ordinary kriging with a nominal block size of 20 m x 20 m x 15 m. To ensure the reported resource exhibits reasonable prospects for economic extraction, the mineral resource is limited within a pit shell generated around copper grades in blocks classified in the Indicated and Inferred categories. Generalized technical and economic parameters include a copper price of $2.75/lb., site operating costs of $1.70/t for mining, $5.00/t for processing and $1.00/t for general and administration, a pit slope of 34° and 90% metallurgical recovery.
Mining
The life-of-mine (LOM) ore tonnage is estimated to be 1,488 million tonnes of concentrator feed and 1,510 million tonnes of waste stripping. The stripping ratio, including stockpile re-handling, is projected at 1.05 (tonnes of waste per tonne of sulfide ore milled). Excluding the three-year preproduction period, the mine life is estimated at 36 years.
The concentrator feed during the first five years of operation is predicted to have a higher average grade of 0.73% copper. These grades are approximately double the average grades in the later years of mining (after Year 20). In the first five years of mining, 93% of this initial mill feed is presently classified as Indicated mineralized material and the remaining 7% is Inferred mineralized material.
The 2017 PEA is preliminary in nature. The mine plan and economic model include the use of Inferred resources. Inferred resources are conceptual in nature and are considered to be too speculative to be used in an economic analysis except as allowed for by Canadian Securities Administrators’ National Instrument 43-101 (NI 43-101) in PEA studies. There is no guarantee that Inferred resources can be converted to Indicated or Measured resources. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. As such, there is no guarantee the project economics described herein will be achieved.
Processing
Preliminary metallurgical test work has been conducted intermittently since 2008 to determine how the mineralized material responds to flotation as a means of recovering payable copper metal. Results have consistently proved favorable and flotation has been adopted as the processing option of choice.
The Los Azules concentrator will produce copper concentrate as a final product. The process flowsheet has been modeled on the Antapaccay copper concentrator (Glencore – Peru) due to similarities in ore properties and process plant altitudes. Some minor design changes, in equipment sizing only, have been incorporated based on operating experience at Antapaccay. The plant has been designed for average daily throughput of 80,000 tpd. The concentrator would be constructed on-site and would employ one comminution circuit consisting of a primary crusher, stockpile feed conveyor, reclaim conveyor, one SAG mill, two pebble crushers and two ball mills. The comminution circuit would be followed by flotation, thickening and filtration circuits, a Tailings Storage Facility (TSF) and concentrate storage. LOM recovery of copper to concentrate is expected to be 91% at a concentrate grade of 30% Cu.
It is planned to expand the capacity of the plant to 120,000 tpd by Year 5 through the installation of additional comminution and flotation capacity. 
Gold and silver are recoverable to the copper concentrate. No other metals have been identified that would yield by-product credits, nor that have significant amounts of penalty elements.
Capital Costs
A key desired outcome of this study was to provide a project capital estimate with a reasonable level of accuracy. A summary of the initial capital estimate is provided in Table 3.

Lithium Race Back In The Future Against Time: Tesla Model 3 Body Line Slowed Down 1/10th Speed And Full Speed.



No, this video is not the reason for Tesla missing its own production targets. Lines are busy at the real 100% speed making new Model 3 electric cars. There is a lot of talk about Tesla production rate for Model 3 these days. Instead of projected 1,500 Tesla has made only just over 200 Model 3 cars. Elon Musk was on record talking about "production hell" at the very beginning of the S-curve ramping up the production. There are reports that production problems are related seats, headlamps and other parts of the assembly lines. 





Today we can appreciate how Tesla Model bodies are made at 1/10 of the actual speed. A lot of these initial production problems Tesla will overcome by the end of the year. I am more concerned whether Tesla has really secured the supply of the critical commodity going into every single lithium battery. It will be an enormous risk for the whole supply chain of Tesla if only Panasonic will be producing lithium cathode for cells to be made at Gigafactory. Samsung is supplying some cells for Tesla Powerwalls now, but this reliance on just two supplies can become a crucial bottleneck in the nearest future.

Great Wall, automaker from China has made a deal securing lithium supply from Pilbara in September, this is the only way to go in the future. Only diversified sources of lithium supply can allow the development of necessary lithium supply for electrification of transportation. Whether it is 100 million tones to be produced by 2050 or "just" 36 million tones of Lithium (LCE) - mining industry needs billions of dollars invested today to bring results in 3-5 years down the road. This kind of money can be coming now from serious automakers and lithium battery makers into the best lithium projects.



International Energy Agency: In Order To Limit Temperature Increase Below 2º C The Number Of Electric Cars Needs To Reach 600 Million By 2040.






"The cost of lithium batteries is going down very fast and I believe that fully electric cars will rule the world very soon. Tesla Model 3 with 65 kWh lithium battery provides over 200 miles of range and will become the standard in the industry with its mass volume production from this July. There is around 60 kg of LCE (Lithium Carbonate Equivalent) in one Tesla Model 3 battery. We will need 36 Million Tonnes of LCE to be produced by 2040 to put this IEA plan into life. 



To put it into perspective, the total lithium production last year was around 200,000 T of LCE. Now you can better understand why there is the real cut throat competition for the security of lithium supply which is still hidden from the most of the people by the clouds of toxic cancer hazard fumes emitted by all DIEsel cars on our roads. ICE (Internal Combustion Engines) are on the way out, all cars will be electric very soon and we are facing the total disconnect between the coming demand for lithium and the available supply. Read more."


International Lithium's JVs With Ganfeng Lithium Is An Entry Point To A Vertically Integrated Business With An Industry Giant From China. 




International Lithium's (TSXV: ILC) Joint Ventures with Ganfeng Lithium in Argentina and Ireland is an entry point to a vertically integrated lithium business with a USD $6 Billion market cap industry giant from China. ILC's strategy is to build VC Capital in a number of M&A transactions. Construction of ILC Royalty Portfolio is our underlining business model. International Lithium's stake in the Mariana joint venture is of particular interest for OEMs entering into the electric car and lithium battery business looking to secure their long term lithium supply. Read more.
