RB Energy Quebec Lithium Production Update



VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Aug. 18, 2014) - RB Energy Inc. (the "Company" or "RBI" or RB Energy") (TSX:RBI)(OTCQX:RBEIF) is pleased to report steady production at its Quebec Lithium project and increasing sales of battery grade lithium carbonate.

Since August 3, 2014 (News Release August 5, 2014), 62 tonnes of battery (>99.7% Li2CO3) grade material have been shipped to our off-take partner in China. Production levels currently average between 40 and 50 tonnes of battery grade material per week, and are expected to increase week on week going forward.

Production through the processing plant is now focused on improving recoveries and increasing volumes towards achieving commercial production levels by year end; all part of the standard commissioning process.
The Company has initiated short term financing arrangements as the first step in a two part financing process. The second step is a more comprehensive financing solution over the coming weeks which, combined with revenues from lithium sales, will allow Quebec Lithium to continue to operate in the normal course of business until commercial production volumes and positive operating cash flows are reached. 


RBI currently owns Aguas Blancas, a producing iodine mine in northern Chile, and Québec Lithium near La Corne, Quebec. The Aguas Blancas operation is in production. The Québec Lithium operation has completed construction and is in the commissioning phase. For more information regarding RBI, please refer to its public filings available at www.sedar.com.

Focus Graphite Files Lac Knife Graphite Project Feasibility Study Technical Report

Focus Graphite Inc.

August 2014


Weighs lower-cost options for tandem financing of mine/plant and purification facilities for high value "battery grade" graphite production


OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Aug. 8, 2014) - Focus Graphite Inc. ("Focus" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:FMS) (OTCQX:FCSMF) (FRANKFURT:FKC) sole owner of the Lac Knife, Quebec high purity graphite deposit announced today that the Feasibility Report prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101and with form 43-101F1 will be filed under the Company's SEDAR profile on Friday August 8th, 2014 at www.sedar.com and on Focus' website (www.focusgraphite.com).

The Feasibility Study was prepared by Met-Chem Canada Inc. with contributions from AGP Mining Consultants, Journeaux Associates and Golder Associates.
Don Baxter, Focus' President and Chief Operating Officer said: "With the Feasibility Study now completed, we continue to de-risk the project by focusing on key, near to mid-term milestones, including: detailed engineering, project financing, and the permitting process.
"In particular," he added, "the Feasibility Study opens the door to another level of available financing.
"We are evaluating options to secure project financing that will enable us to advance the Lac Knife mine and plant construction."
Mr. Baxter said discussions with potential offtake partners are ongoing and will complement the existing 10-year offtake signed in December, 2013.
The highlights of the Feasibility Study, as reported June 25, 2014:

Table 1
Lac Knife Feasibility Results (Pre-Tax) Base Case 2016 Forecast Units
Average Price / Tonne of Concentrate: $1,713 $2,256 US$
Internal Rate of Return (IRR) 30.1 41.8 %
Net Present Value @ 6% Discounted Cash Flow 510 809 $ million
Net Present Value @ 8% Discounted Cash Flow 383 624 $ million
Net Present Value @ 10% Discounted Cash Flow 291 488 $ million
Payback Period 3.0 2.1 Years
Lac Knife Feasibility Results (After-Tax) Base Case 2016 Forecast Units
Internal Rate of Return (IRR) 24.1 32.8 %
Net Present Value @ 6% Discounted Cash Flow 304 476 $ million
Net Present Value @ 8% Discounted Cash Flow 224 364 $ million
Net Present Value @ 10% Discounted Cash Flow 165 280 $ million
Payback Period 3.2 2.4 Years
All monetary values are in Canadian Dollars ("CDN") except where specified otherwise

Of note is that average prices used in the financial model do not include value added products produced using the typically lower valued finer natural flake graphite.
Background:
The Feasibility Study was conducted with engineering and estimation methods appropriate to target an accuracy of 15% that is standard and realistic for capital and operating cost estimates for this level of study, that is required prior to detailed engineering, and well beyond the +/- 30% accuracy of a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA). Based on an extensive risk review exercise the contingency is 11.5%. Capital Expenditures in Table 2 itemize cost requirements for mine construction, processing plant, power line and all associated infrastructure estimated at $165.55 million.

Table 2
Lac Knife Capital Expenditure - Cost Centers CDN$ millions
Mine equipment, infrastructure, and pre-stripping 4.21
Infrastructure 11.62
Primary Crushing 7.02
Concentrator 62.24
Environmental and Tailings Management 8.22
Additional Infrastructure 15.4
Indirect Costs 39.77
Contingency (11.5%) 17.07
Sub Total 165.55

The company is continuing discussions with vendors to define financing packages for equipment. The company's aim is to reduce up front capital and add to the basket of financing options currently being investigated. Discussions and due diligence continue regarding Supply Chain Financing ("SCF") based on the offtake agreement signed in December, 2013 for a minimum of 50% of Lac Knife's production over the life of a 10-year agreement. SCF is a non-dilutive alternative to equity financing and is less encumbering than traditional debt, or royalty financing.

Future off-take agreements will contain a financial component. This project-financing alternative could include equity and low interest debt as well as a signing bonus to execute an offtake agreement. The various options discussed above have the potential to enhance future project economic evaluation metrics, and the company continues these discussions with several interested parties.

The Plan has been designed to encourage the fair and equal treatment of shareholders in connection with any takeover bid for Lomiko's outstanding securities, and will provide the board of directors with additional time to assess the advantages and disadvantages of any particular offer, and to seek out alternative proposals in the best interests of all shareholders.


If ratified, the Plan will have an initial term which will expire at Lomiko's annual general meeting of shareholders to be held in 2017; the Plan may also be reconfirmed and extended at that annual general meeting and at every third annual general meeting thereafter.

RB Energy Announces the First Commercial Shipment of Lithium Carbonate

RB Energy Inc. Marketwire
RB Energy Inc. (the "Company" or "RBI" or RB Energy") (TSX: RBI)(OTCQX: RBEIF) is pleased to announce the first commercial shipment of lithium carbonate from its 100% owned Quebec Lithium operation.

The first container of technical grade lithium carbonate (98.8%) was shipped to our offtake partner Tewoo ERDC this past weekend. 

Significant progress over the past 30 days has culminated in increasing production volumes and commencement of commercial shipments. Weekly shipments of lithium carbonate are now scheduled going forwards with volumes expected to increase week on week towards commercial production levels by late 2014. 

Quebec Lithium cash flow requirements are presently being satisfied by the forward sale of iodine from the Company's 100% owned Aguas Blancas operation in Chile. Discussions with stakeholders and other potential investors are in progress towards a more comprehensive financing package to take the Quebec Lithium operation to commercial production, and proceeding to name plate levels of 20,000 tonnes of lithium carbonate per annum in Q1 2015.

Minor modifications to the plant to achieve volume production of electric vehicle battery grade material (greater than 99.9%) are expected to be completed in late Q4. The Company will then have the flexibility to produce different quality products depending upon customer requirements and best pricing.
Commenting upon the first commercial shipment from the Quebec Lithium operation, Richard Clark, CEO of the Company, stated: "Although the commissioning of our lithium operation has taken longer than anticipated, we are very pleased to have at last achieved the important milestone of a first commercial shipment of lithium carbonate. We now expect to produce and deliver on a regular schedule with volumes increasing towards commercial production levels by the end of Q4. I would like to congratulate our operations team for their efforts in overcoming the many challenges that we have faced in the commissioning process and I join with them in looking forward to realizing the full potential of our lithium business."
