    “Sprawled across more than 23 square kilometers (9 square miles) of arid desert in Coahuila, Mexico, the grid-connected 828 MW Villanueva solar power plant represents a pinnacle of innovation, quality, supply chain management, and logistical orchestration. The yearly output of the plant surpasses 1,850 gigawatt hours of energy, enough electricity to annually meet the consumption needs of over 1.4 million Mexican households and offset more than a million tons of carbon emissions.”

    $MGXMF – MGX Minerals Announces Patent Acceptance for Low Cost Combined Heat and Power Cogeneration (CHP) for Heavy Oil and Oilsands Producers; Combines Steam and Electricity Production, with Wastewater Treatment and Mineral Extraction Technologies

    “The patent filing outlines the proprietary method with example applications. When applied to heavy oil production in Alberta, the system can reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from 2.45 tpd/bbl capacity (0.48 tonnes / m3 of produced oil) to 1.19 tpd/bbl capacity (0.11 to 0.15 tonnes / m3 of produced oil). This reduces the energy requirement and associated GHG intensity by over 70%, making it similar to conventional oil recovery in other areas. In addition, because the capital used has revenue from both electricity and oil production, the cost of electricity production is comparable to the lower 25% of the market cost in North America and the cost of heavy oil production becomes similar to costs to produce light crude oil in the middle east.”

    $FYI – National lab’s technologies among the 100 most significant of 2018

    “Protecting the electric grid — DCAT
    Ever-increasing cyberattacks and natural disasters can wallop the nation’s electric grid, potentially causing cascading power outages that cost utilities and their customers billions of dollars. PNNL’s answer for minimizing the impact of extreme events on power grid is DCAT. By simulating thousands of extreme events, DCAT automatically meshes the evaluation of steady-state operations with changing occurrences in the electric grid to find weak spots. Once a weakness is identified, DCAT determines the impacts that would result from a cascading power outage and provides the power operator with actions to stop the outage before it happens. With DCAT, utilities would gain at least 50 percent in efficiency for analyzing grid occurrences compared to today’s more manual processes.”

    “When placed within the SAGD operation itself the system will significantly reduce greenhouse gases through energy savings on steam generation. The technology provides superior treatment outcomes when compared to conventional technology which requires offsite trucking and high cost (due to toxicity) disposal. The technology can treat the water in line, under temperature and pressure, without cooling water first and is a paradigm shift advancement in waste water management and oilsands operations. This will result in significantly less energy use for water treatment, reduction in greenhouse gases and also eliminate the single major operational challenge of a (“SAGD”) facility, which is heat exchanger fouling.”

    $FYI – The EV Metal Miners Rout Should End Soon
    by Matt Bohlsen @SA –

    The EV metals miners have been smashed down in 2018 and are now very oversold. 2018 lithium and cobalt prices remain firm suggesting oversupply fears are largely unfounded.
    EV sales and energy storage are booming – these are very strong tailwinds to the EV metal miners.
    EV metals demand is strong and generally, supply is struggling to keep up. Cobalt has pulled back due to a strong but expected short-term DRC supply response.
    The EV metal miners rout has been overdone and sentiment will soon change to match the strong underlying fundamentals.

    “However, when digging deeper, we can see this does not make sense mid to long term, as most fundamentals have improved in 2018 while EV metal miner stock prices have plummeted.”

    This is a re-post I left on the Scandium, Cobalt, etc sight this morning.
    It is directed to the miners in particular, especially the small juniors…..

    Folks, I hope that you have kept up with IKN and his blog.

    For the past two days he has posted discussions with two knowledgeable people about the mining sector and discuss what has been going on regarding the share pricing, and how we have gotten into such a mess.

    This cat really pens some interesting things and takes on “problem” pump and dumpsters all the time, but lately he has really gotten in their face, and now we see some verbiage from market and company higher-ups.

    This might help you understand why share prices is so pathetic, in an “open” market.
