The Financial Press featured Solid Resources (TSXV:SRW) in the article, “An Antidote to Horror: Solid Resources Affords ‘conflict-free’ Source of Critical Metals”.
As quoted in the press release:
Among those poised to take strategic advantage of these shifting dynamics is a Vancouver-based junior exploration company, Solid Resources (SRW: TSXV), which is currently awaiting final mining permits for its Alberta-1 tantalum, tin and lithium property in north-western Spain.
Solid Resources has operated in Spain since 2000, when the revolution in electrical technologies first highlighted the potential for tantalum.
The 3,690-hectare Alberta-1 concession, which was a former tin mine, has been shown to contain vast amounts of this rare metal, currently fetching near-historical highs of around $250 per kg.
Four drill programs — in 2003, 2005, 2011 and 2012 — have proved out average grades of 800 ppm of tin, 110 ppm of tantalum and 0.5 percent lithium.
Rick Gliege, Solid’s COO, says production at Alberta-1 could begin within two years, once permits are secured. “In the mining world, that’s almost immediate,” he says. “We are on track to become Europe’s first producing tantalum mine and one of the very few tin and lithium mines. This has definitely caught the attention of several major European critical metal processing and trading companies.”
