Agoracom interviews CEOs of small cap companies.

In this episode of the Small Cap CEO Interviews podcast, AGORACOM speaks with Lomiko Metals (TSX-V:LMR) President and CEO, Paul Gill.

Just 120 Km’s North of Montreal, Lomiko Metals (LMK:TSXV) has been quietly building a high-grade graphite behemoth, with the goal of becoming a world-class supplier to the electric vehicle market in terms of both quantity and quality. With a new 43-101 looming, the last set of drill results on July 9th brought in multiple 100 m+ intercepts and 10%+ Cg Zones, serving as the icing on the cake.

These were in addition to similar big intercepts in 2016 and gave Lomiko the final bit of incontrovertible evidence it needed to announce a financing round primarily aimed at institutions. The Company is so confident in its completion, that it believes an updated 43.101 will be out by October and a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) will be done by Q1 2020. That PEA is what CEO, Paul Gill, plans to use as a marketing document for major auto suppliers when he goes looking for automotive partners that will want to lock in Lomiko’s supply for the next 20-30 years.

Gill has one final reason to feel confident about his ability to become a world-class supplier to North American Mega factories by 2022 …. the only operating graphite mine in North America is just 53 km northwest of Lomiko.

As you think about your next show to start watching on NetFlix over the next few months, make sure to add Lomiko Metals to the watch list …. and get your popcorn ready.

Agoracom interviews CEOs of small cap companies.

In this episode of the Small Cap CEO Interviews podcast, AGORACOM speaks with American Creek (TSX-V:AMK) President and CEO, Darren R. Blaney.

American Creek Resources (AMK:TSXV) was flying under the radar until July 19th, until Canadian Billionaire Investor Eric Sprott said the following about the Company’s flagship project:

“It’s drilling a monster play just like the GT Gold play …. It’s in the perfect logistical place to develop it ….. what we’re shooting for is to define a 10 or 20-million-ounce discovery…”

The property he is discussing is Treaty Creek, which is located in the “Golden Triangle” and adjoins both Pretium Resources’ Brucejack-Snowfield property and Seabridge Gold’s KSM property. That is one hell of a neighbourhood.

Add in the fact that JV partner Tudor Gold is run by Walter Storm, the man who financed Osisko to a $3.4 Billion exit and you are beginning to see why Eric Sprott just doubled down on American Creek Resources.

Agoracom interviews CEOs of small cap companies.

In this episode of the Small Cap CEO Interviews podcast, AGORACOM speaks with Empower Clinics (CSE:CBDT) CEO, Steven McAuley.

At 165,000 patients, Empower Clinics (CBDT:CSE) (EPWCF:OTCQB) has a database that almost every medical cannabis and CBD company would kill for. Add in the fact it is now on a ~ $USD 4,000,000 annualized revenue run rate for 2019 and it becomes the kind of company small cap investors have been dying to find.

But it doesn’t end there.

The Company is set to expand rapidly by taking its proven model into the franchise world for rapid expansion across the USA, with 4 applications already received in the last 30 days, as well as, launch its CBD extraction facility with an initial capacity of 6,000 Kg per year.

But it doesn’t end there.

The Company’s new CEO, Steven McAuley, who replaced the previous management team in January, is Six Sigma certified under the quality initiative of legendary GE chairman Jack Welch. We’ve never seen a Six Sigma certified CEO in the Canadian small cap markets. Never.

Agoracom interviews CEOs of small cap companies.

In this episode of the Small Cap CEO Interviews podcast, AGORACOM speaks with HPQ Silicon Resources (TSX-V:HPQ) Chairman and CEO, Bernard Tourillon.

In 2015, HPQ Silicon (HPQ:TSXV) began its quest to completely change the economics of the global silicon market, which would also significantly impact the solar and battery markets. Quite frankly, it almost seemed like an audacious goal that HPQ had no business even thinking about.

Fast forward to today and the following quote from CEO, Bernard Tourillon, says it all:

“We are ready to start commercializing our PUREVAP™ QRR technology. We are aiming to completely revolutionize the economics of the $24B silicon industry and create significant cash flow”

It now seems that HPQ didn’t just think about this audacious goal, they are on the cusp of actually achieving it.

If you’re still skeptical, then you also need to know that HPQ Silicon hasn’t gone at this alone. Their world class technology consortium includes Pyrogenesis Canada (a global leader in plasma torch technologies) and Apollon Solar (one of the world’s leaders in renewable energies).

With partners of this calibre, you have to take the statements of HPQ Silicon very seriously – and now keep a very close eye on them as they begin to enter their commercialization stage over the next 6 months.

Agoracom interviews CEOs of small cap companies.

In this episode of the Small Cap CEO Interviews podcast, AGORACOM speaks with American Creek (TSX-V:AMK) President and CEO, Darren R. Blaney, and Investor Relations Officer, Kelvin Burton.

30 days ago, American Creek Resources (AMK:TSXV) was well known only amongst investors that believe in the Golden Triangle of Northern B.C. Then, it all changed overnight when Eric Sprott stated the following on July 19, 2019 about the Company’s Treaty Creek project:

“It’s drilling a monster play just like the GT Gold play … It’s in the perfect logistical place to develop it …. what we’re shooting for is to define a 10 or 20-million-ounce discovery, so you’re paying nothing for this discovery.”

To add further fuel to the fire, the Company’s JV partner is Tudor Gold, whose CEO (Walter Storm) startup funded Osisko to a $4.5 BILLION market cap. Drill results were so good at the end of July that Tudor Gold brought in a second drill, while Eric Sprott personally invested $1,000,000 into AMK 8 days later.

If 3rd party validation is important to you in the world of gold exploration, it doesn’t get better than having Eric Sprott and Walter Storm in your corner.

Agoracom interviews CEOs of small cap companies.

In this episode of the Small Cap CEO Interviews podcast, AGORACOM speaks with Spyder Cannabis (TSX-V:SPDR) CEO, Dan Pelchovitz.

Newly listed Spyder Cannabis scores 5 US retail Locations, with possibility to expand to 39, with US outlet partner.

Spyder Cannabis (SPDR:TSXV) went public just a couple of months ago and hit the ground running with 5 operating Canadian retail locations – and a 6th one on the way via an 8,000 sq ft super store in Alberta.

Most companies would be ecstatic to have this number of locations – but Spyder just announced a major move into the United States, with a 5 location deal for boutique stores up and down the US Eastern seaboard. The news gets better. If all goes well with these 5 locations, the US outlet partner has a total of 39 locations across 20 states for Spyder to grow into to.

Spyder Cannabis may have just gone public but they are making big moves into the highly coveted retail space for marijuana, CBD and Hemp products, including carrying their own brands within their stores.

Agoracom interviews CEOs of small cap companies.

In this episode of the Small Cap CEO Interviews podcast, AGORACOM speaks with Advance Gold (TSX-V:AAX) President and CEO, Allan Barry Laboucan.

Advance Gold Corp. (TSXV: AAX) is smack in the middle of elephant country.

10% of all the Silver ever produced on earth came within a 100km diameter of its past producing Tabasquena Mine.

What makes Advance Gold even more exciting is the fact they’ve found just as much gold as silver since they started drilling Tabasquena over the past couple of years.

After discovering a cluster of epithermal veins in the “first layer of their cake”, CEO Allan Barry Laboucan thinks he’ll find the massive source in the second layer…. Because that’s where mines all around him have found their source.

Watch this great interview with him to find out why you should be circling Labour Day on your calendar.

Agoracom interviews CEOs of small cap companies.

In this episode of the Small Cap CEO Interviews podcast, AGORACOM speaks with HPQ Silicon Resources (TSX-V:HPQ) Chairman and CEO, Bernard Tourillon.

HPQ Silicon challenges traditional producers of silicon metal.

HPQ Silicon (HPQ:TSXV) has thrown down the gauntlet with respect to traditional, mega producers of silicon metal with the following recent press release:

“HPQ PUREVAP™ Commercial Plant Costing Indicates Significant Capex Savings Versus Conventional Plants Producing Silicon Metal”

In the actual press release itself, HPQ went even further with the following bold statement:

“With the Gen3 phase start just around the corner, we are getting closer to the time when market participants will have no choice but to take notice that we are the only viable low Capex and Opex alternative to producing Silicon Metal.”

If that wasn’t enough, HPQ Silicon made direct reference to the two newest silicon metal plants to demonstrate massive capital cost and operating cost advantages. Specifically:

* PCC BakkiSilicon hf ($300 Million Plant)
* Mississippi Silicon ($220 Million Plant)

The gravity of these bold statements is even greater when you consider that HPQ’s world renown partners include Apollon Solar and PyroGenesis Canada, the latter of whom provided the data that led to the press release.

When you take a break from the summer heat, grab yourself a cold beverage and watch this interview with CEO, Bernard Tourillon. You just may thank yourself by the time winter arrives!

Agoracom interviews CEOs of small cap companies.

In this episode of the Small Cap CEO Interviews podcast, AGORACOM speaks with Lomiko Metals (TSX-V:LMR) President and CEO, Paul Gill.

Lomiko multiple 100m intercepts of high grade graphite sets up 43-101 and PEA.

The Lomiko Metals (LMR:TSXV; LMRMF:OTCQB) flagship, high-grade graphite project (La Loutre) was already looking pretty impressive before its most recent press release, with the following attributes:

* Indicated + inferred resource of 10 M Tonnes of 6% Cg at the Graphene-Battery Zone
* 120 km from Montreal
* 53 km from the only operating graphite mine in North America (5.2M Tonnes of 7.42% Cg)
* Located in the mining + green friendly Province Of Quebec

Despite this, CEO Paul Gill wanted more tonnage and higher grade to really position La Loutre as a serious supply source for the multiple battery factors set for completion throughout North America in the next couple of years. Well, it looks like he may very well have got it.

Agoracom interviews CEOs of small cap companies.

In this episode of the Small Cap CEO Interviews podcast, AGORACOM speaks with BetterU (TSX-V:BTRU) president and CEO, Brad Loiselle.

BTRU prepares for massive national launch in India.

Over the last 10 weeks, BetterU (BTRU:TSXV) has issued a string of news releases regarding clients, partnerships, financing and personnel that strongly indicate the Company’s online education marketplace in India is on the cusp of hitting its commercialization stage. July 15, 2019 may very well turn out to be the day BTRU hit the start gun, with a massive national ad campaign set to launch along with their partner NSDC (“National Skills Development Corporation”).

NSDC is a public/private partnership under the government of India whose mandate is the creation of skills development and vocational training. With upwards of 150 million people across 38 industries requiring skill training, the task is a daunting one for NSDC who now believes “a formal partnership would enable the advancement of our collective efforts towards skilling India” (Manish Kumar, MD & CEO, NSDC).

Is this just another partnership? The size of the July 15 launch says otherwise, with $600,000 being allocated to print, radio and digital throughout India. Moreover, BTRU will be launching its App to coincide with the launch, which will allow Indian citizens to assess their skills sets and needs, then select the right courses to learn the skills necessary to fill jobs throughout India.

Watch BTRU CEO, Brad Loiselle, talk more about this ground breaking partnership, the technology behind it and what it could mean for BTRU.

Agoracom interviews CEOs of small cap companies.

In this episode of the Small Cap CEO Interviews podcast, AGORACOM speaks with BetterU (TSX-V:BTRU) president and CEO, Brad Loiselle.

4 weeks ago we interviewed BetterU (BTRU:TSXV) CEO Brad Loiselle from his head office in Ottawa with the title “BetterU On The Move In India With Partnerships, Products and Personnel”

2 weeks ago we interviewed him again from India where he and Gurmit Singh were on a whirlwind tour of meetings with large potential customers

Today, we finished our BTRU tour with Brad in London and, specifically, in the back seat of a good old black cab as he raced for the airport after his final meeting. He simply couldn’t wait to be back in Ottawa on Monday because – as you can see from his energy – it appears the trip went exceedingly well from a customer acquisition point of view as Brad expects to be closing meaningful deals in the very near future. Moreover, the London meetings were tied to financing pitches with VERY big family offices.

This last few weeks has put a new light on BTRU, with significant advances in product and personnel, which appear to be preparing for highly anticipated new customers. Only time will tell but how many CEO’s would be speaking with their shareholders from 3 different countries over the last 4 weeks if they weren’t feeling pretty confident?

Grab a coffee, watch this great interview with Brad Loiselle and let us know what you think.
