Get a Foothold in Clean Energy – Lithium, Uranium, Cobalt

Location of Azincourt lithium projects

Spodumene showing from the Eagle Pegmatite

Azincourt Energy Corp. is a Canadian junior exploration company focused on developing Lithium and Uranium assets int he world's top mining jurisdictions

Azincourt Energy Corp (OTCBB:AZURF)

VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA, February 22, 2018 / — ‘In order to produce half a million cars a year… we would basically need to absorb the entire world’s lithium-ion production.’ – Elon Musk

“The skillsets that young people should learn about mining should apply to everything. We just need to do a better job of explaining to people in urban environments that the human activity of mining is absolutely fundamental to the way this planet is going to evolve. Completely and totally fundamental.” – Robert Friedland, Ivanhoe Capital

The future envisioned by industry leaders hinges heavily on the production of new materials to power and build the future. Leaders such as Elon Musk have been developing the blueprint for the future with electric cars, battery grids and renewable energy solutions. While, other leaders such as Robert Friedland are looking to supply the materials to build this future. Mr. Friedland makes the case and understands the story that is unrolling in real time. Mining is the critical component to meet the world’s demands for a sustainable future. The prerequisite for this future is mining and with every mineral discovery and development project, this future is coming closer.

Mr. Friedland is not the only miner that realizes the economy of tomorrow will require the development of new mining assets. Azincourt Energy Corp. (TSX-V: AAZ, OTC: AZURF) is a Canadian junior exploration company that has been actively building their mining asset portfolio in anticipation of the future demand for minerals that will provide clean energy; from lithium to uranium to cobalt.

Azincourt Energy Chairman, Ian Stalker is an experienced mining executive that sees the writing on the wall when it comes to the materials and fuel that future technology will require. Mr. Stalker is a senior international mining executive with over 45 years of hands-on experience in resource development. Over his career Mr. Stalker has directed over twelve major mining projects, from exploration drilling to start-up, including gold, base metal, uranium and industrial minerals. He is currently CEO of LSC Lithium (TSX.V: LSC), and Chairman of Plateau Uranium (TSX.V: PLU), and is the former CEO of UraMin Inc., the London and Toronto listed public uranium company that was acquired by Areva for US$2.5 billion in August 2007. In a recent press release, Mr. Stalker outlined the current strategy for Azincourt.

“The lithium market is obviously very strong right now, and the near-term future for lithium demand remains extremely positive. Our decision to expand Azincourt’s focus to include lithium and other materials is something we feel strongly about. To get a foothold and exposure in this environment, at this time, is an important and strategic step for us.”

Azincourt recently acquired five lithiums projects in located in the Winnipeg River Pegmatite Field, Manitoba, Canada. Two of the projects, the Lithium One and Two projects, are adjacent to Quantum Minerals Corp.'s Cat Lake lithium project which includes a historical estimate from drilling in 1947 that defined 545,000 tonnes of 1.4 percent lithium oxide (Li2O). Drilling could prove up this ground.

Two other of the acquired lithium projects, the Lithman West and East projects are adjacent to the Tanco Mine lease property. These projects are part of the Winnipeg River pegmatite field which hosts numerous lithium-rich pegmatites or “hard-rock” lithium such as the Tanco pegmatite that has been mined at the Tanco mine since 1969 for spodumene, a major component for hosting lithium (Li), and other rare earth ores.

Azincourt has scheduled exploration work to begin in the spring of 2018, with a field program that includes detailed mapping of the known pegmatite outcroppings on the Lithium One and Lithium Two projects. This will be followed immediately by a comprehensive chip sampling program designed to generate targets for the drill programs anticipated at both properties during the summer of 2018.

Previous work in 2016 produced twelve samples between a range of 0.02 per cent to 3.04 per cent Li2O from the Eagle pegmatite, and up to 2.08 per cent Li2O. Select sampling will concentrate on the Eagle and FD5 pegmatites at Lithium Two, and on the Silverleaf pegmatite at Lithium One, which returned values as high as 4.33 per cent Li2O in the 2016 exploration program (see press release dated Feb. 1, 2018).

True to the company strategy, Azincourt announced a new project that is adjacent to the western edge of Plateau Uranium’s Macusani Project in Peru. This project contains the high-grade Falchani discovery that includes consistent 3,000-3,500 ppm Li over 100m intercepts at depth, and U3O8 grades up to 500 ppm over 50m intercepts at surface. The plateau features areas of uranium-rich surface mineralization as well as lithium mineralization at depth.

BoardBookit finds most companies have not developed a narrative for their CEO Pay Ratio

BoardBookit finds most companies have not developed a narrative for their CEO Pay Ratio

We are finding that just as technology can facilitate engagement amongst a board, it can also help smooth the path between issuer and shareholder.”

BoardBookit finds most companies have not developed a
narrative for their CEO Pay Ratio

February 22nd, 2018, Pittsburgh, PA – BoardBookit, the leading board portal solution for optimal user experience and affordability, today announced the results of its first ever poll. This poll found that more than 60% of companies had not developed a narrative for their CEO Pay Ratio and close to 10% of those said they had no plans to. In a webinar on this topic, Scott H. Kimpel, Partner at Hunton & Williams commented “the bigger issue I think for companies [with regards to the Pay Ratio] is going to be socializing the numbers not with investor groups, who are either going to like the number or hate the number, but with employees.”

There is an ongoing debate about whether the CEO Pay Ratio makes a difference to investors. Amy Borrus, Deputy Director at the Council of Institutional Investors commented “As one of our our pension fund members said, where there's a close call… the pay ratio disclosure could be used as a tiebreaker” Blair Jones of Semler Brossy Consulting Group, LLC added “I think it's absolutely important for your board to understand what this ratio is, because we don't understand how the ratio might be talked about in the public arena. Having the directors prepared both to speak to the investors, and also as the conversation happens, in the public space, is really important.”

“I think [the rule has] opened the door to a very formal engagement process between issuers and investors that's been invaluable” said Suzanne Rolon, Director of Corporate Governance at Pfizer. Boardbookit also polled companies about whether they have pursued engagement with their shareholders prior to the proxy season. Slightly more than 30% said they had. Marion Lewis, CEO of BoardBookit commented “we are finding that just as technology can facilitate engagement amongst a board, it can also help smooth the path between issuer and shareholder. Going forward we expect to see growth in the number of companies consistently engaging with shareholders. ”

About BoardBookit
BoardBookit is the board portal solution that perfectly blends security, functionality, optimal user experience and affordability. Fast, intuitive and flexible, BoardBookit gives companies the control they require and support when they need it. Designed with input from corporate secretaries, administrators and board members to enhance board engagement, effectiveness and governance, BoardBookit is used by companies across the United States, Canada, Europe and Australia.

LAS VEGAS, UNITED STATES, February 22, 2018 / — Real estate is bought and sold with an expectation to gain from the capital appreciation. It can give good returns, but it is also accompanied by a hefty tax that you have to pay. If you are also thinking to sell off your real estate property, then there are certain things that you need to know. One of the many important things to remember is the capital gains tax on the sale of your real estate property. Understanding this is very important.

Wondering what capital gains tax means? Read on to understand what it is, how to calculate it on real estate and most importantly how can you save on the tax on this capital gain.

What is A Capital Asset?

l kinds of property whether tangible or intangible, movable or immovable, fixed or circulating that you own for personal or investment purposes. E.g., Stocks, bonds, house, land, etc. If the asset is held for less than 24 months, it is called short-term capital asset and if for over 24 months it is known as the long-term capital asset.

Types of Capital Asset

Following are the various types of capital assets:

• Sculptures
• Drawings
• Jewelry
• Property
• Security
• Paintings
• Archaeological collections

What is Capital Gain or Loss?

When this capital asset is sold off, the difference between the purchase price of that asset and the selling price is known as the capital gain or capital loss as the case may be. These gains or losses can be long-term or short-term depending on the type of the capital asset.

What is Capital Gains Tax?

It is a tax which one has to pay on the capital gains, i.e., the profit which one makes from selling a property or any other investment. It is levied only when an asset is realized and not when the investor is just holding the asset. You are liable to pay long-term capital gain tax if the property was owned for more than 3 years otherwise short-term capital gain tax.

The tax which is levied on the capital gain from selling off a real estate property is known as capital gains tax on real estate.

What Can Be Done to Minimize the Tax on the Capital Gains?

Follow these basic rules to minimize the tax that you will have to pay on the capital gains on real estate:

1. When to sell

Long-term capital gains tax is lower than short-term, therefore if possible try to hold the property for at least 3 years to save that tax.

2. Income level

Income level has an effect on the amount of long-term capital gains tax one pays. So, sell the property when your income is low. By doing that you could come in a lower tax bracket and save the tax. E.g., if you know that your income is going to decrease in coming year or months as your spouse will no longer be working, that is the time to sell off your property.

3. Mix and match the capital losses with capital gains

By doing this, you will neutralize the loss and gain, and the net capital gain will be the difference between the gain and the loss, thereby saving on the amount of tax to be paid.

4. Keeping records

Keep the records of any home enhancements that you did before selling off the property. An improvement can be anything which helps to make the home better or restores to a previous condition. This amount is deducted from the capital gain thereby helping in reducing the tax to be paid.

Capital gains tax could be troublesome as it can reduce the profit from selling a real estate property. But now that you know what is capital gains tax on the sale of a property and how to save that tax act wisely and you could reduce your capital gain tax liability on the real estate transaction and make a profit much profit from selling a real estate property more than you could otherwise!
