Independent Lithium Supply Chain Researcher Livio Filice shared his insights on all things clean energy. We talked lithium, battery storage and the pullback in lithium stocks in 2018.

Equally interesting was my conversation with Chakana Copper (TSX-V: PERU) CEO David Kelley, who went over the recent permitting milestone in Peru that provides a path forward to a modification which will be a key catalyst in 2019.

David went over his approach to 2019 and how the company is using and preserving its robust treasury. I’m bullish copper and at these levels I’m extremely bullish on Chakana.

Soar Financial Canada Corp. CEO Kai Hoffmann talked about his renewed optimism regarding the junior space going into 2019.

Revival Gold (TSX-V: RVG) CEO Hugh Agro detailed the first results from Arnett and new assays from the flagship Beartrack.
