<![CDATA[News - Enertopia Corporation to raise new funds for lithium ventures ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com.au/companies/news/129113/enertopia-corporation-to-raise-new-funds-for-lithium-ventures-129113.html Enertopia Corporation (CNSX:TOP) intends to raise C$525,000 which will be earmarked for the group’s new lithium business.

It plans to issue 15mln units, comprising one share and a non-transferrable share warrant, priced at 3.5 Canadian cents each.

The company, which recently relaunched its strategy, told investors it intends to use the new funds for its exploration projects and Lithium brine recovery technology.

Earlier this month the company revealed assay results from its recently completed phase one surface Lithium exploration programme in Nevada.

The exploration programme covered the company’s three sites: Big Smoky Valley; Edwards Creek Valley; and Smith Creek Valley.

Near surface sampling analysis confirmed that the geological model of lithium being eroded from the nearby tertiary age mountains and being deposited into the basin continues to this day, which according to Enertopia means these basins are excellent candidates for sourcing potential enriched lithium brines at depth.

Separately, Enertopia also has a deal in place to team up with a leading North American brine water recovery company as it develops a Lithium processing technology.

Enertopia has describes the technology as ‘revolutionizing’, and it believes the venture could change the current footprint of the lithium industry.

It said the ‘leading North American company in the field of mobile brine recovery’ would now evaluate the feasibility of recovering lithium from brine using a mobile recovery technology.

This comes after a first phase of analysis was completed successfully. Brine data was submitted by Enertopia, as well as other sources, and it analysed whether lithium could be processed from brine and be converted into a high purity product.

<![CDATA[News - Enertopia getting hot over Big Smokey lithium project ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com.au/companies/news/128911/enertopia-getting-hot-over-big-smokey-lithium-project-128911.html Enertopia Corporation (OTCMKTS:ENRT, CNSX:TOP) has received assay results from its recently completed phase one surface Lithium exploration programme in Nevada.

The exploration programme covered the company’s three sites: Big Smoky Valley; Edwards Creek Valley; and Smith Creek Valley.

In total 38 composite samples were collected from 19 auger-bored holes one to five feet below ground surface and five to nine feet below ground surface (Sample B).

Sixteen composite soil samples from eight auger holes were from the Big Smoky Valley.  The intervals ran 96.7 parts per million (ppm) lithium to 133.5 ppm lithium per sample with the best hole, BSV 71, averaging 127.75 ppm lithium.

Twelve composite soil samples from six auger holes were from the Edwards Creek Valley.  The intervals ran from 58.0 ppm lithium to 86.1 ppm lithium per sample with the best hole, EC 91, averaging 81.0 ppm lithium.

Ten composite soil samples from five auger holes were from the Smith Creek Valley.  The intervals ran from 58.40 ppm to 70.90 ppm lithium per sample with the best hole, SC 82, averaging 68.25 ppm lithium.

Enertopia said the near surface sampling analysis confirmed that the geological model of lithium being eroded from the nearby tertiary age mountains and being deposited into the basin continues to this day, which means these basins are excellent candidates for sourcing potential enriched lithium brines at depth.

“Results from the first phase sampling program proves that we have been able to take a textbook geological model and turn it into reality one step at a time as we further explore our three Nevada lithium projects that we are earning our 100% ownership interest in,” said Robert McAllister, president and chief executive officer of Enertopia. 

“We are excited about the lithium values at our Big Smoky project which are above the estimated cut-off numbers required for the brine mobile unit recovery system. We are continuing to make progress with the technology company since our news release of June 28, 2016,” McAllister continued.

“The above surface results bode very well for lithium values to be enriched at depth based on the geological model,” McAllister said.

<![CDATA[News - Enertopia teams up with water processing group for lithium venture ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com.au/companies/news/127601/enertopia-teams-up-with-water-processing-group-for-lithium-venture-127601.html Enertopia Corp (CNSX:TOP, OTCBB:ENRT) told investors it has teamed up with a leading North American brine water recovery company as it develops a Lithium processing technology.

The group, which describes the technology as ‘revolutionizing’, believes the venture could change the current footprint of the lithium industry.

It said the ‘leading North American company in the field of mobile brine recovery’ would now evaluate the feasibility of recovering lithium from brine using a mobile recovery technology.

This comes after a first phase of analysis was completed successfully.

Brine data was submitted by Enertopia, as well as other sources, and it analysed whether lithium could be processed from brine and be converted into a high purity (99.5% Li2CO3). It also assessed possible costs per tonne for that processing.

“The first phase analysis showed that lithium in the brine at a concentration level of 100 parts per million (ppm) could be feasibly recovered into 99.5% LiPO4 with a recovery rate of 95% of the Lithium contained in the brine. Cost for that recovery was estimated at $3,500 per ton of LiPO4,” the company said in a statement.

“The cost to recover lithium as Li2CO3 at a grade of 99.5% was estimated to be $5,500 per ton based on a Lithium concentration of 100 ppm in the brine.”

It also noted that if there are higher concentrations of lithium in brine (more than 400 ppm) the costs to process battery grade lithium potentially drops below US$1,800 per tonne.

Enertopia highlight that in the next phase of work will use 5 gallon brine samples taken from field sources. The aim will be to verify the results seen in the first phase. Thereafter, the plan would involve building a pilot plant, capable of processing 50 gallons per minute.

If proven it could enable a fast-track approach to lithium production, which would see projects start up in a matter of months rather than years. Capital costs would also be much lower than mining operations, it added.

Robert McAllister, chief executive, said: “Enertopia is excited with the success of the first phase analysis and how these numbers compare with the current processing costs from current and near term Lithium producers.

“Enertopia looks forward to the second phase analysis and our ongoing exploration work at our three Nevada Lithium brine projects and continuing due diligence in the mineral sector.

“Modern technology is revolutionizing ways and providing a better way to mine and protect our environment. We are enthusiastic in becoming leaders in this evolution.”

The company noted that the identity of the water treatment company could not be disclosed at this time due to customer confidentiality as well as proprietary and strategic reasons.

(OTCMKTS:ENRT) said on Thursday it has engaged McKay Mineral Exploration LLC to conduct the first auger sampling programme on the company's three Nevada lithium projects.

Auger drilling is expected to take up to three days to complete. From the company's review of historic data available in the public domain, this is believed to be the first-ever lithium auger programme at Edwards Creek Valley, Smith Creek Valley and the north half of the Big Smoky Valley projects in Nevada.

The auger programme has been designed to test for lithium and associated minerals at near-surface depths of up to nine feet depending on hosted sediment conditions. Sampling, bagging and shipments of all samples will be taken and completed as per best industry practice and standards.

This first sampling programme, in conjunction with compilation of existing data, will help optimise the next phase of exploration.

<![CDATA[News - Enertopia seeking drill quotes for Nevada projects ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com.au/companies/news/126900/enertopia-seeking-drill-quotes-for-nevada-projects-126900.html Enertopia Corp (CNSX:TOP) is seeking quotes from drillers for its three projects due east of Reno, Nevada, as it updated on its recent fundraise.

In May, it finalised the deal for its acquisition of the Lithium brine exploration claims in Nevada.

The claims will be known as the central Nevada lithium brine project and currently cover 2,560 acres.

"The company will provide a drilling update once permits, drilling contractor has been selected and funds properly allocated for such drilling program or programs," Enertopia said.

"Concurrently with this process the company is also looking at a more detailed surface program in the Big Smoky, Edwards and Smith valley projects.

"Exploration actively in the Big Smoky Valley has rapidly increased in the search for Lithium brines over the past month."

President Robert McAllister added: "Ultra Lithium recently completed two 2,000 foot wells to test for Lithium at the south end of Big Smoky Valley and Nevada Energy Metals recently staked 3,200 acres in the same township and range as our Big Smoky Valley claims.

"We are very encouraged by the increasing pace of advanced exploration in the Big Smoky Valley by 3rd parties which we believe validates our project selections.

"Mineral exploration is high risk, but high reward.

"However Lithium is one of the few metals markets that's in need of growing supply as Lithium becomes a larger component of our advancing technological society.

"Year over year and decade over decade the percentage of demand growth for Lithium is expected to lead all metals markets going forward."

The firm also revealed it had closed the final tranche of its recent financing to the tune of $45,250.

It will issue over 3mln shares at C$0.015 and the same number of warrants that expire on June 8, 2019 with an exercise price of US$0.05 during the first 18 months and US$0.10 after 18 months until they expire on June 8, 2019.

The first tranche of the $96,200 private placing was closed on May 20.

<![CDATA[News - Macquarie sees lithium as the new wonder resource in the mining sector ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com.au/companies/news/126692/macquarie-sees-lithium-as-the-new-wonder-resource-in-the-mining-sector-126692.html Investors and analysts are finally taking note of lithium, and so they might as demand is expected to systematically outstrip supply in a few years, according to brokers at Macquarie Research.

In 2015, demand outstripped supply, and although that is expected to continue in 2016 before switching in 2017 and 2018, from 2019 to 2021 there is expected to be a widening deficit of Lithium globally.

According to the broker's estimates, in 2019 demand for Lithium will be 239,000 tonnes while supply will struggle to match, at 233,000. In 2020, demand will be 260,000 and supply only 237,000, while in 2021 demand could be 283,000 and demand still 237,000.

But while demand will continue to grow, the broker explains that the supply valve may be loosened, resulting in lower prices and a slowdown in supply.

"In sharp contrast to other commodities, prices took off in 2015 and have continued to rise, as the long-anticipated electric vehicle story took off," Macquarie said.

Lithium demand was up 8% year-on-year overall and 22% year-on-year in batteries last year. The rally has been aided by established producers consciously not lifting output to meet this demand. The result is a China imported lithium carbonate price up 50% since the start of last year, from $4,700/t to $7,000/t in April.

"Based on our detailed supply/demand analysis, we believe that having gone into deficit last year the market will remain tight through 2016 and 2017, despite more supply coming from Australia and Argentina. As a result, we are bullish lithium on an 18-month view, with an average price target of $8,250/t for 2017. This annual average represents 16% upside from current spot, but on a shorter-term basis, overshooting into the mid-to-high $8,000s per tonne looks likely," researchers said.

"In a world where many commodities are struggling for any consumption growth, we believe lithium has the most compelling demand story. We forecast a CAGR of 9% to 2021. New energy vehicle (NEV) batteries are the essence of the story and forecast demand from this sector grows at a 31% CAGR to 2021, at which point they would account for one-third of all lithium demand versus just one-tenth today. We think external consultants are underestimating this demand potential," the broker adds.

"Structurally, lithium has no supply capacity constraint. Four producers control 90% of global output and are producing well below capacity, we believe in an attempt to support prices. This has worked so far, but there is a swathe of new capacity planned from 2018, which is looking increasingly viable following the recent rally. We believe to protect market share and keep new entrants out existing producers will be forced to raise volumes. As a result, our expectation is that prices reach a turning point in late-2017, and then start heading lower. Investors should be aware that existing assets plus two Australian mines starting this year could theoretically meet all projected demand growth."

The claims will be known as the central Nevada lithium brine project, which currently covers 2,560 acres.

Robert McAllister, president of Enertopia, said: "The company looks forward to the exploration and drilling phase on the Central Nevada Lithium Brine Project and providing project updates on a continuous basis as exploration unfolds."

As reported last month, the claims are subject to a 1.5% net smelter return royalty from commercial production with the company able to buy back the NSR at the rate of $500,000 per 0.5-per-cent NSR.

The claims lie in the Churchill, Lander and Nye Counties in Nevada.

Enertopia has paid US12,000 to the vendor and issued 3.5mln shares.

In order to earn its 100% interest, the firm is required to make total cash payments of US$60,500 over one year  and up to an additional 3mln shares based on the successful drilling of a lithium enriched brine aquifer with a minimum Lithium average content of 300 ppm over 100 feet of liquid brine reservoir.

Last month McAllister said: "The lithium market is undergoing a structural shift with accelerating demand growth and many analysts believe this rapid growth rate will be sustainable well into the next decade.

"Today's technologies now allow for easy access for the night time storage of electricity at far lower rates than daytime peak demand hours, so whether one is using Tesla's Powerwall Lithium battery storage system or AES Energy Lithium Storage, it has never been easier to find a storage platform for electricity."

The group has entered into a letter of intent on April 21, over a proposed option to purchase a 100-per-cent interest in around 2,560 acres of mining claims in Nevada, USA.

These claims are subject to a 1.5% net smelter return royalty from commercial production with the company able to buy back the NSR at the rate of $500,000 per 0.5-per-cent NSR.

Enertopia president Robert McAllister said: "The lithium market is undergoing a structural shift with accelerating demand growth and many analysts believe this rapid growth rate will be sustainable well into the next decade.

"Today's technologies now allow for easy access for the night time storage of electricity at far lower rates than daytime peak demand hours, so whether one is using Tesla's Powerwall Lithium battery storage system or AES Energy Lithium Storage, it has never been easier to find a storage platform for electricity.

"Hopefully our society will move to storing more energy at night instead of letting it go down the line unused and thus wasted while we are sleeping. Today our society has the technology options to produce and capture electricity like never before.

"Rather than building expensive, environmentally destructive and outdated hydro projects that could burden our children with even more debt for decades to come we need to look forward into the next decade and not backwards.

"The company believes that its learned knowledge in the mining and clean tech sector's and network of technical advisors offer the ability for the company to leverage this knowledge to being a potential low cost producer in the lithium sector."

Enertopia, he said, had obtained knowledge from diverse sectors, including metallurgy from the mining and resource sectors, nutrients and also minerals for botanical growth.

"In order to maximize the potential of the unifying concepts of the above technologies and more, Enertopia has decided to attempt to leverage its unique knowledge base and assemble disparate knowledge bases with specific applications to the Lithium market."

Upon execution of the LOI, the firm  paid a US$7,000 deposit to the vendor.

In order to earn its 100% interest, the firm is required to make total cash payments of US$60,500 over one year and issue a total of 3.5mln shares on signing of the definitive agreement and up to an additional 3mln shares based on the successful drilling of a lithium enriched brine aquifer with a minimum Lithium average content of 300 ppm over 100 feet of liquid brine reservoir.

"The proposed transaction remains subject to, among other things, the company and the vendor entering into a formal agreement, completion of satisfactory due diligence by the company and receipt of all requisite regulatory and other approvals. There can be no assurance that the acquisition will be completed as proposed or at all."

Shares in New York added almost 92% to US$0.02.

Amazon.ca’s main distribution facility in Mississauga, Ontario, has received the first shipment of V-Love and is ready to deliver it to consumers throughout Canada after they order it online by going to amazon.ca, entering vlove in the search field and completing a purchase order.

V-Love is also available online through the London Drugs website, www.londondrugs.com as well as in stores operated by the popular drugstore chain.

"We are very pleased to now have two major channels for online distribution in Canada as we move forward with our consumer outreach programs," stated Enertopia’s president Robert McAllister.

<![CDATA[News - Enertopia says London Drugs to carry V-Love desire gel at all 79 locations ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com.au/companies/news/108271/enertopia-says-london-drugs-to-carry-v-love-desire-gel-at-all-79-locations-108271.html Enertopia (CSE:TOP) (OTCBB:ENRT) has taken a major step forward with the marketing of its new V-Love desire gel by signing a distribution deal that will see the product go on sale in all 79 stores operated by London Drugs, one of the most popular retailers in Western Canada.

The British Columbia-based drugstore chain, which also has stores in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, has already received the first shipment of V-Love at its main distribution facility in Richmond, BC, Enertopia said Monday.  V-Love will also be available online through the London Drugs website, www.londondrugs.com.

"We are very pleased to be working with London Drugs, a respected community leader and name synonymous with consumer products,” said Enertopia’s president, Robert McAllister.

Founded in 1945, London Drugs offers consumers a range of products from digital cameras and cosmetics to computers and televisions, though pharmacy and health care services are the heart of its business.  Its stores are prominent in both urban centers and suburban communities.

V-Love, the inaugural product in Enertopia’s health and wellness line, first went on sale in May of this year when the company debuted the product with a special launch at Loblaws City Market in North Vancouver.  Sales topped 150 units from the launch on May 9 through the end of that month.

Enertopia worked with sexual health expert Maureen McGrath, who hosts the Sunday Night Sex Show on Vancouver’s CKNW radio, on the development of V-Love.  The topical gel V-Love enhances sexual pleasure by lubricating and providing a feeling of natural vaginal moisture.

<![CDATA[News - Enertopia puts brakes on medical marijuana ambitions to focus on nearer-term opportunities ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com.au/companies/news/108226/enertopia-puts-brakes-on-medical-marijuana-ambitions-to-focus-on-nearer-term-opportunities-108226.html Enertopia Corporation (CSE:TOP) (OTCBB:ENRT) has signed a binding Letter of Intent to sell wholly owned subsidiary Thor Pharma Corp. and its related Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR) application covering a facility in Burlington, Ontario, the company said in a statement Friday.

The Burlington application and associated rights, co-owned by Enertopia and Lexaria Corp. (OTCQB:LXRP) (CSE:LXX) under a joint venture agreement, could generate up to $1,500,000 in milestone payments should the facility become licensed under the MMPR program.  Any payments would be split approximately 50/50 between Lexaria and Enertopia.

Separately, Enertopia and The Green Canvas Ltd. have mutually agreed to terminate their joint venture covering a proposed 14,000 sq. ft medical marijuana production facility in Saskatchewan.  As a result, 6,400,000 Enertopia common shares held in escrow by The Green Canvas will be returned to the corporate treasury and cancelled.

The announcement reflects the company’s decision to prioritize business opportunities in the health and wellness segment that offer potential for near-term cash flow and require moderate investment.

License approvals under the Canadian system regulating production of medical marijuana have slowed owing both to the large number of applications received by Health Canada and uncertainty resulting from ongoing court cases.  Enertopia decided that it was not in the best interests of shareholders to pursue medical marijuana growing opportunities at this time given the associated financial obligations.

"The Company has completed two milestones in building a stable foundation with its ownership of 1,000,000 shares in Lexaria Corp.which has just filed PCT for patent pending bio technologies and the potential of approximately $750,000 in future payments from the Burlington application," Enertopia President Robert McAllister said.

As part of its strategic shift, the company last month initiated sales of a new product in the sexual health sector called V-Love.  Enertopia said in a recent press release that sales of V-Love, a desire gel for women, at the Loblaws City Market in North Vancouver where it debuted had exceeded expectations, topping 150 units from the launch on May 9 through the end of that month.

Online sales of V-Love are set to begin soon, and McAllister said talks are ongoing with a number of potential retailers to carry the product.

Enertopia said in its press release that it will remain an advocate for responsible use of medical marijuana in Canada and retains the intention to one day become a licensed producer.

<![CDATA[News - V-Love launch gives Enertopia good start in health and wellness sector ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com.au/companies/news/108209/v-love-launch-gives-enertopia-good-start-in-health-and-wellness-sector-108209.html Enertopia’s (OTCQB:ENRT) (CSE:TOP) V-Love desire gel for women hit store shelves in May, three months to the day after the company partnered with well-known sexual health expert Maureen McGrath and announced its intention to develop a new product to help women reinvigorate their sexual interest.  In line with its strategy to test-market and then gradually ramp up distribution, V-Love went on sale at Loblaws City Market in North Vancouver on May 9, complete with a launch party and an educational session on women’s health.

So far the results have been promising.  With over 150 units sold during the month of May, the company issued a press release this week indicating that demand in the first month had exceeded expectations.  “Our early number is several times what a major chain said we would have to hit on a monthly basis to be considered as a vendor, so we are very pleased,” said Robert McAllister, Enertopia’s President and CEO, via telephone.

In February, Enertopia announced plans to shift its focus to the health and wellness sector, reacting to a longer-than-anticipated timeframe for obtaining a production license for a medical marijuana facility in Ontario.

V-Love is the company’s first product in its health and wellness line.  A topical gel designed to increase women’s sexual interest and desire, the active ingredients increase blood flow to the female genitalia.  V-Love also acts as a lubricant to enhance comfort during intercourse.

McGrath, who hosts the popular Sunday Night Sex Show on Vancouver’s CKNW Radio and has a background in research and product development, participated directly in the creation of V-Love.   She also helped Enertopia create a product platform based on educating women about understanding sexual desire and sexual health in general.

According to McGrath, at the moment there is not a single product on the market approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to address low sexual desire for women, although last week one did clear a major hurdle by winning the recommendation of an FDA advisory committee.  In comparison, there are 26 medications approved for male sexual dysfunction.

As a registered nurse in the field of sexual health with her own private practice, McGrath knew what consumers needed in a new sexual desire gel.  Water-based, V-Love is edible and has been tested for latex condom compatibility, relying on L-arginine and vitamin E to help improve elasticity, keep tissue youthful, increase blood flow and enhance lubrication.

An amino acid contained in watermelon and cucumbers, L-arginine has been shown to boost blood flow when applied, which may enhance the sexual pleasure for women.

McGrath said she has received hundreds of inquiries based on discussion of the product on her radio show and has even been recognized and quizzed on it when walking in public.

“A lot of women have low sexual desire and increased blood flow helps with swelling of a woman’s genitalia, including the clitoris.  Vaginal lubrication begins which decreases friction and can make sex more pleasurable,” she explained.

A sought after public speaker and commentator on women’s issues, McGrath agreed to develop V-Love because, she says, “Low sexual desire is growing at an epidemic rate.  We need to re-socialize women around their sexuality and V-Love is a product that can help to do that by raising awareness about female sexual health.”

One takeaway from McGrath’s statement is that it's not all about the money.  And this is reflected in the product’s pricing.  Retailing in the $18-20 dollar range, V-Love is priced as a premium product that provides Enertopia with a healthy margin, while still offering tremendous value to its users given the condition it seeks to address.

Although it might be marketed as such, V-Love is not just for women, according to McGrath.  When it comes to sexual desire, women are more complex than men, she explained.  ”By educating men that self stimulation is also important for women and that V-Love may help with increasing blood flow and decreasing friction, men can learn what it takes to make a sexual experience that’s more satisfying for both partners.  This is a pivotal time in history for female sexuality.  Finally, women are ready to embrace their sexuality and talk about a subject that until recently has been considered quite taboo.”

With a good start under its belt, Enertopia is negotiating with several retailers in Western Canada in an effort to get V-Love into more stores.  Plans also call for initiating online sales in the near future.  “We think online sales will be very important because not everyone will live near a store that carries the product,” explains McAllister.

Canada is the focus for the time being, and as V-Love is just getting under way on the sales front there are plenty of markets nationally to keep the Enertopia team busy for the foreseeable future.  That having been said, the company intends to introduce a V-Love product in other markets that is infused with hemp oil-derived cannabidiols, which are known to have antioxidant and other desirable properties.

“If we can show with our efforts in Canada that there is a consistently strong market for V-Love at a certain price point, then expansion into other markets would just come as a natural extension,” commented McAllister, who made it clear he won’t put the cart before the horse.  “We know we have to walk before we can run.”
