BeMetals Corp. (TSX-V: BMET) is the new player in base metals exploration and development.
BeMetals was created by founding executives of B2Gold Corp. (NYSE: BTG & TSX: BTO) and formerly of Bema Gold Corp. Our Company aims to generate significant value for shareholders by incrementally growing into a major base metal producer through prudent acquisitions of quality exploration, development and production stage mineral projects. This strategy is directed by the Board, key members of which have an extensive, proven track record in delivering considerable value in the mining sector through the discovery, construction and operation of mines around the world.
BeMetals is currently focused on advancing the development of its South Mountain Project in southwestern Idaho, U.S.A. (“South Mountain”) and the Company is actively exploring its Pangeni Project (“Pangeni”) in the western extension of the Central African Copperbelt in Zambia (the “Copperbelt”). South Mountain is a high-grade zinc-silver polymetallic deposit that has extensive existing infrastructure in place. Given positive future drilling and metallurgical results, the Company envisions South Mountain as becoming a high-grade zinc mine with relatively low capital requirements. Pangeni is an early-stage copper exploration project located in a largely underexplored region of the western extension in the Copperbelt. The Copperbelt is one of the most prolific copper producing regions in the world and hosts numerous world class copper-cobalt mines.
Additionally BeMetals continually evaluates many promising exploration, development and production stage projects internationally. Potential projects are identified through target generation of the highly experienced team, and the Company benefits from the very extensive deal flow generated by the network of directors, advisors and management team.
BeMetals Corp. (TSX-V: BMET) is the new player in base metals exploration and development, poised to capitalize on the growing global demand for copper and zinc. With the rising popularity of electric and hybrid vehicles and the projected shortfalls in base metal supplies, expected to drive up metal prices, there’s likely never been a better time to climb aboard. Here are 5 reasons why BeMetals should be a part of a diversified investment portfolio.
If you’re thinking of investing in metals and mining, it’s worth asking, “What is the best metal to invest in right now?” Flashy, precious metals like gold and silver get a lot of attention, but today, the answer is actually base metals like copper and zinc.
Given the world’s increasing population, copper consumption has increased 2.5% annually over the past 40 years, while demand for zinc has seen a whopping 34% increase since 2004. Copper and zinc have always been essential, but with the rise of sustainable industries, electric/hybrid vehicles, and rapidly-expanding cities, both are being consumed at record rates. At the same time, supply for these base metals has steadily declined, with copper and zinc stores plummeting 60% and 92% since 2014, respectively. With the coming shortfall in base metal production in mind, now could be an ideal time to invest.
Founded by Clive Johnson, Tom Garagan, and proven executives hailing from B2Gold Corp., the BeMetals team is equipped with decades of experience in international mineral exploration, development and metal production. Over the years they have leveraged their considerable clout to raise over US $2 billion for exploration, acquisitions, construction, and operation of numerous mines worldwide. B2Gold is senior gold producer, generating over US$1 billion in annual revenue and hundreds of millions in profits.
With our recent option agreement for the South Mountain Zinc-Silver project from Thunder Mountain Gold in southwest Idaho, we can acquire up to 100% interest in one of the highest grade zinc projects in all of North America. The project offers
With extensive contacts from throughout the international minerals business, BeMetals has abundant deal flow of projects to the company. We have already locked into one copper exploration project in Zambia with world-class exploration potential and this year we entered into an agreement to acquire an advanced-stage zinc development project in Idaho, USA.
We’re also still targeting to acquire additional high-value base metal near-term development assets to quickly and efficiently bring them into production, and we are particularly focused on zinc and copper investments.
Even in the midst of extremely challenging market conditions, the BeMetals team has demonstrated a keen ability to access capital for exploration, acquisitions, and mine building. Acqusitions and development of copper and zinc projects take considerable capital, but with the founders’ banking networks and experience in the field, project funding is a non-issue. In fact, the company completed a $6.25 million non-brokered financing on May 7 of this year, with further development and acquisition plans to come.
Investing in base metals is a more enticing prospect than it has been in decades, and Be Metals is in place to reap the rewards of mineral revenue in the coming years.
