LABRADOR ENERGY POTENTIAL 2

LABRADOR HYDRO TECHNOLOGY

Quest1

In general, small and mini hydro power generation technology  like HUG have shorter gestation periods (approx. one year) compared to large hydro power plants (7 years). In addition, small and mini hydro give a higher return on investment due to the low capital investment and maintenance costs. The energy potential of small and mini hydro plants, which are easier to construct and commission due to simpler designs.  This keeps costs down especially in remote areas like Labrador.

New technology leads to new growth opportunities:

  • HUG is a Patented Energy System that will literally change the face of our world as we know it.
  • Energy costs of diesel electricity (not including capital costs) are very high: $0.63 per kWh vs. $0.15/kWh for HUG
  • HUG extracts power from a water flow without the use of an expensive dam: Cost $1,000,000: $4000/kW
  • Laminar flow of the HUG creates a boundary layer at the wall of the spiraling cylinder resulting in zero friction: this increases the velocity up to four times.

The next largest sector is the Small Hydro Power (1Mw to 10 MW) and Large Hydro Power (more than 10 MW) markets deploying larger scaled-up HUG models in estuaries and ocean currents. With 102 estuaries in U.S. and over 3,000 globally, tidal estuaries are ideal sources of water power adding significantly to potential production.

The HUG innovation can also be in the Small Hydro category which had a market of $14 Billion in 2008 and experiencing a 16% growth per year. In 2015, Small Hydro will be a $40 Billion market typified by tidal estuaries and large river systems.

Mining Companies like Quest Rare Minerals have a serious energy problem, which could make or break their proposal.

  • Diesel Oil must be carted inland for hundreds of miles near Lac Brisson, Uyagalatok Rapids and Voisy Bay.
  • Yet only 16 km away is a 100MW HUG solution.

LABRADOR ENERGY POTENTIAL

The Labrador Potential is self-evident. You have an enormous barrier of remote areas, where barrels of fuel must be delivered. The mining areas are within as close as 16 km from the source of rapids and waterfalls.

The Prospects look good:

Values of up to 5.70 % total rare earth oxides (TREO),
43.32 % iron oxide (Fe2O3), 2.98 % titanium oxide (TiO2), 1.05 % phosphate (P2O5), 0.37 % niobium
oxide (Nb2O5) and 3.39 % zirconium oxide (ZrO2) were returned from grab sampling of bedrock and
locally-derived boulders.

RING of FIRE POTENTIAL 2

RING OF FIRE ENERGY COMING

The Ring of Fire Potential will come down to one factor, which will make or break any prospects: Hydro Electricity, which is not expensive. We cannot build massive dams in remote areas at a low cost.

Enter the HUG!

Noront Resources alone spent $19 million in 2009. One industry analyst suggests that the six companies drilling in the area will spend around $250 million over five years on exploration. Since site access is by fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters, the budget for transportation is huge. Noront was exploring for nickel, platinum and palladium at its Eagle’s Nest project in north-eastern Ontario.
Freewest Resources Canada Inc. stumbled upon an even more plentiful material, chromite, on a 3-square-kilometre piece of land smack in the middle of wetlands and bush.

A counter offer was made by Cliffs Natural Resources Inc., the largest supplier of iron ore to North America. Cliffs won. U.S.-based Cliffs also owns part of KWG Resources Inc.

Canada Chrome is a subsidiary of KWG Resources Inc., one of the companies involved in the $1.5 billion development, which includes an $800-million mine scheduled to go into production by 2015. Canada Chrome will operate the mine and build a 350-kilometre long haul railway capable of moving four-million tons of ore a year from McFauld’s Lake to Nakina.

Today, the roll call of companies in the area is impressive: Metalex Ventures Corp., Canadian Orebodies Inc. (Don McKinnon of Hemlo gold discovery fame and his son Gordon), East West Resources Corp., Mill City Gold Corp., MacDonald Mines Exploration Ltd., Probe Mines Ltd. Temex Resources Corp.and Diamondex Resources Ltd. to name a few of the 100 plus.

The Freewest Black Thor chromite prospect has an estimated 2 km strike length.
