I doubt this ever gets to a production stage, I read extensively about it when the news came out about a year ago, and these guys have roughly 15 times the production costs of South American deposits !!!

Val D'or et Rouyn sont sur une faille qui s'appel la faille de Cadillac qui s'étant d'est en ouest sur 320 KM, la plupart des mines dans la région sont sur cette ligne.

 

C'est un anomalie géologique qui contient un grand nombre de minéraux. 70% des mines d'or et de Zinc au canada sont sur cette ligne et ses ramification secondaire.

 

La faille principale n'est plus active aujourd'hui, mais les failles secondaire, surtout au Témiscamingue le sont toujours comme en dénote les 2 tremblement de terre de 1935 (6.2) et 2000(5,2).

 

 

Le bouclier canadien est une des plus vielle structure géologique au monde, était recouvert d'un océan il y a plusieurs millions d'année. Il y a eu une chaine de montagne de nature volcanique qui a émergé de l'océan et des plaques sont entré en collision avant de se souder par la suite. C'est ce qui explique principalement la grande concentration de minéraux dans la faille.

 

Dans les couches géologique, ont peut voir des plie de la croutte terrestre allant de 30 à 70 degré ce qui laisse croire que de très haute montagne ont déjà existé dans ces territoire il y a plusieurs millions d'année. Cependant, les épisode successif de glaciation ont érodé la terre pour lui donné son allure actuel.

Intéressant David! Merci. J'ai vu le CEO de cette compagnie parler sur Bloomberg News. il disait que la mine a l'avantage d'être à seulement 12 heures de route des principaux manufacturiers de batteries au MIchigan. Les autres mines en Amérique du Sud sont beaucoup plus difficiles d'accès.

Très intéressant. Dommage que je n'ai pas appris cette nouvelle plus tôt...j'aurais surement investit. Malheureusement leurs stock est à son plus haut niveau jamais....et vous savez ce qu'ils disent, but low and sell high!

 

On verra dans quelqeu semaine ce qui va se passer!

:goodvibes: Un autre bel exemple de la richesse de notre sous-sol. Apprenons à bien l'exploiter en respect avec l'environnement et les populations qui y habitent et surtout développons la transformation sur place le plus possible. C'est dans la transformation que l'on créé une plus-valu et où on créé le maximum d'emplois dans les grands centres et aussi dans les régions.

Canada Lithium Corp. is pushing its battery-grade lithium carbonate project 100 kilometres north of Val d'Or towards a late 2012 production startup, expecting the full feasibility study before year-end, says CEO Peter Secker.

 

The open-pit mine and processing plant will cost between $150 million and $180 million, including working capital, and it will produce more than 19 million kilograms of 99.9-per-cent-pure carbonate over 15 years for sale to lithium-ion battery makers as electric car markets mushroom throughout Asia, North America and Europe.

 

Delivery of the full feasibility study, a detailed technical and economic summary of the project, is essential for arranging permanent financing.

 

A $10-million equity financing at 80 cents a share was arranged this week via a private placement with investment funds managed by BlackRock Inc., the world's biggest asset manager with $3.45 trillion U.S. under administration.

 

"Everyone's looking for lithium but we've got a head start to supply makers of next-generation e-car battery with their primary material," Secker said. "The BlackRock name may have helped to push our share-price up, but that support will cover progress payments for the crushing, screening, ball mill and kiln equipment -the project's essentials."

 

With BlackRock's support and receipt of the feasibility study by Montreal's BBA Inc., Canada Lithium will have $16 million in hand and be ready to negotiate debt and equity financing, start detailed engineering early next year and bring in the construction crews at mid-year.

 

Secker said the mine will be environmentally benign since the only residue will be sand that can be stored and later covered with topsoil and trees. The project's capacity could be doubled later, depending on demand and price.

 

Canada Lithium will sell mainly to Asia through its connection with Mitsui of Japan and also to Phostech Lithium's Inc.' s lithium iron phosphate plant being built at Candiac.

Nice to see CLQ getting more exposure.

      J'ai remarqué qu'on voit Montréal sur le menu du nouveau remake de Resident Evil 2. C'est un pur hasard parce que le jeu est fait au Japon et il ne se passe pas à Montréal, mais j'aime bien le background.

      Video games: the next generation
       
      By Marc Cieslak
      Reporter, BBC Click

       
       
      The video games industry is obsessed with the phrase "next generation", but what does it actually mean? What can gamers expect from any game given that name?
      It would be easy to dismiss the next generation gaming experience as simply eye candy.

      Every single thing in the city can be grabbed, climbed on, jumped from
       
       
      Jade Raymond, Ubisoft producer
       
       
      The latest games all look great but the potential offered by the processing power of consoles such as the Xbox 360 and PS3 does not end there. They also give developers a wealth of new gameplay possibilities.
      At Ubisoft's Montreal studio, a team of 300 designers, programmers and artists have spent four years developing Assassin's Creed, a next generation medieval action adventure.
      "A lot of people have heard the term 'next gen game' thrown around and so far what we've seen as far as next gen games mostly means better quality graphics," said Ubisoft producer Jade Raymond.
      "So you've seen in fighting games where boxers are up close, you get more detail on the facial animation. Or in car racing games it looks exactly like the car, and you get more shiny cars and the environments are more realistic.
      "But for me personally, next gen game had to mean new types of gameplay."
      Assassin's Creed is set during the Crusades and the action takes place in three huge cities. Each is populated with thousands of computer controlled characters. Players can take Altair, the character they control, anywhere in the city.
      "We made this rule and gave ourselves the challenge to try and make huge cities that are completely interactive, which means that every single thing in the city can be grabbed, climbed on, jumped from," said Ms Raymond.
      "Which means that we created tools to be able to recognise the 3D models and automatically generate interactive edges on everything."
      Lego blocks
      The gaming environment took so long to develop because everything that sticks out of a wall more than two inches can be an anchor point for Altair.
      Bumping into people affects the direction of the main character
       
       
      "Our challenge was to make it readable for the player as we're using games to see the level design ingredients or the game designer path," said creative director Patrice Desilets. "This time there is no path whatsoever."
      Vincent Pontbriand, Ubisoft associate producer, said: "In a regular, more linear, game what you would do is create game levels. In our case, since it involved cities in which you could travel anywhere, we quickly realised it was going to be impossible to customise the entire city that way, polygon by polygon.
      "So what we did was we created a bank of objects, what we call a Lego system, and this allowed us to produce the first templates for the cities quickly by adding and removing blocks.
      "Then we were able to do the same things with objects and eventually with the characters and the population itself."
      While larger environments that allow the player more freedom are certainly a bonus, there is still more to be done before a game can earn that next gen title.
      Background characters
      Probably one of the biggest challenges facing games is to make computer controlled characters more lifelike.
      This is where the hardware buried inside the latest consoles proves so useful.
      "The tendency in technology is to move towards multi-core, multi CPU type of machines," explained AI programmer Matthieu Mazerolles. "What this means is instead of having just one processing unit you literally have several, sometimes up to a dozen all within the same box.
      More than 200 models were used as the templates for characters
       
       
      "What this allows us to do is to take all of the calculations, which are highly complex, that go into making the AI seem alive, and distribute these across many different processors."
      Said Ms Raymond: "We worked on this whole kind of physics systems for when you bump into people and push them out of the way, so that tactile thing really felt real.
      "So bumping into a group of people will make you fall over, running full force into a small woman will knock her over."
      One of the tools the company has worked on is something which generates crowds of diverse people.
      "For NPCs we have hundreds and hundreds of different looking characters, that were the templates we used to create our initial models," said Mr Pontbriand.
      "But then we created our own technology to take those templates, cut them down into pieces and then, with the technology, added the ability to randomise between skin colour, clothes, hair colour.
      "We ended up with a multiplying factor, so these sketches that became models ended up producing thousands of different variations in game."
      'A player's story'
      Increased production values, emotional involvement, environments that have more bearing on the world - could all of these elements help shift games from what many perceive to be a marginalised ghetto into the mainstream?
      "As an entertainment medium, games are really just scratching the surface," said Ms Raymond. "I think we are at where we were with film when we made the transition from silent films to films that were telling a story with sound and dialogue.
      "We are just at the point of discovering what we can do with interactivity and what's an interactive story where you are creating a story for players, but it really has to become the player's story." Said Mr Desilets: "I strongly believe the more we go on with next gen the less we will see video game rules apparent, they will be more and more hidden and the experience will be a lot more immersive because you won't see the video game rules that only gamers really like."
