Cellcube ANNOUNCES RECORD DATE FOR SPIN OUT OF VANADIUM ASSETS INTO V23 RESOURCE CORP.
Cellcube Energy Storage Systems Inc. has established a record date of Nov. 30, 2018, for the spinout of its 100-per-cent-owned Bisoni Mackay and Bisoni Rio vanadium assets in Nevada, into a newly formed company called V23 Resource Corp. (see news release dated June 28, 2018).
Cellcube shareholders of record owning common shares of the company on Nov. 30, 2018, will be eligible to receive the distribution of one common share of V23 for every two common shares of Cellcube upon completion of the spinout arrangement. Cellcube intends to retain a 19.9-per-cent interest in V23, in addition to certain off-take rights and a net smelter royalty.
"Vanadium has become the new battery metal story and is highly valued for energy storage," says Mike Neylan, chief executive officer of Cellcube. "The price of vanadium has increased by 500 per cent since 2016, outperforming any other battery metal. It is the intention of V23 to seek a public listing in the immediate future."
The vanadium belt of central Nevada is host to a significant concentration of single-product vanadium deposits in North America such as the Bisoni McKay and Bisoni Rio properties, and Prophecy's Gibellini property. Cellcube's Bisoni McKay property is a high-grade, pure play vanadium project. Previous drilling has revealed the occurrence of high-grade V2O5 (vanadium pentoxide) in the primary (carbonaceous shale) mineralized material which contains the largest vanadium resource on the property. Several drill holes completed in primary mineralization suggest the deposit is open at depth in some areas. A supergene enrichment zone of up to 35 feet in width has been identified immediately below the redox zone.
Cellcube's Bisoni McKay and Bisoni-Rio project is one of the largest pure play vanadium projects in North America, totalling 4,115 acres contiguous to the Gibellini deposit held by Prophecy Development Corp. Vanadium is most often found in association with other metals such as iron, lead or uranium that must first be removed before vanadium recovery. Drilling and exploration to date have indicated that Bisoni McKay's pure play vanadium resource does not possess any significant concentrations of any of these metals.
Of greater importance, only 12 per cent of the Bisoni McKay area has been drilled (none of the Bisoni-Rio yet), which has already resulted in the estimation of a National Instrument 43-101 indicated resource of 11.9 million tons at an average grade of 0.39 per cent vanadium pentoxide (V2O5), and an inferred resource of 7.0 million tons at an average grade of 0.42 per cent V2O5 (see company news release dated Sept. 13, 2016). The indicated resource is contained in a zone approximately 300 metres in strike length, while the inferred resource covers approximately an additional 200 m of strike length extending to the south. The mineralized zone appears to be open at depth and extends to the north into the Bisoni-Rio property. In 2017, Cellcube staked 162 claims on the Bisoni-Rio property from the Bisoni McKay right up to and abutting the Gibellini vanadium property (see company news release dated June 28, 2018).
