Coloured Ties Applauds Investee Patriot Battery Metals Drilling Success at Corvette Lithium Discovery and Provides Update on Other Lithium Portfolio Assets



Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – September 2, 2022) – Coloured Ties Capital Inc. (TSXV: TIE) (OTC Pink: APEOF) (FSE: 97A0) (“Coloured Ties” or the “Company”) provides the following corporate update.


Coloured Ties has been an early investor and has acquired a total of 1,740,700 common shares of Patriot Battery Metals via purchases thru the Canadian Securities Exchange from December to August 31, 2022, at an average cost of $1.48 per share.

On August 31, 2022 Patriot Battery Metals Inc. released core assay results for an additional six drill holes (CV22-037, CV22-038, CV22-039, CV22-042, CV22-043 and CV22-044) completed as part of the summer phase of the 2022 drill campaign at its wholly owned Corvette property, located in the James Bay region of Quebec. The target drill area – at the CV Lithium Trend – is located approximately 13.5 km south of the regional and all-weather Trans-Taiga Road and power line infrastructure.

  • The Company is pleased to announce some of the strongest lithium mineralized intervals of the drill campaign to date at Corvette, including the strongest based on a lithium grade-times-width metric – CV22-042. This drill hole returned a continuous pegmatite interval (core length) of 159.7 m grading 1.65 per cent Li2O, including 9.0 m of 4.12 per cent Li2O, and was completed as follow-up along strike eastwardly of the 2.22 per cent Li2O over 70.1 m intercept in drill hole CV22-017 (see news release dated May 24, 2022) (Figures 1 and 2). Additionally, drill hole CV22-044 was completed as a step-back to CV22-017 to test the high-grade zone at depth and returned 86.2 m grading 2.13 per cent Li2O, including 18.0 m of 3.07 per cent Li2O (Figure 3). Collectively, both drill holes (CV22-042 and 044) have extended the high-grade lithium zone – first intersected in CV22-017 – along strike and to depth, respectively.
  • Ken Brinsden, Non-Executive Chairman and Director, comments: “The scope of lithium mineralization at Corvette is incredible, with further strong intercepts from the summer program continuing to demonstrate the scale and grade of the mineralized envelope. Remaining open to the east, west, and to depth, in addition to the numerous other lithium pegmatite targets on the Property, the Corvette Project remains highly prospective beyond what we have found to date. Corvette is one of the world’s great lithium raw materials discoveries with full credit to the team as we continue to realize its potential.”

Coloured Ties investment in Patriot Battery continues to return amazing returns with Patriot Battery Metals’ stock closing at $6.96 per share on September 1, 2022. Coloured Ties will continue to monitor the drilling success at Corvette Lithium over the coming months with further drill results pending and an aggressive drill program underway at the Corvette Lithium discovery.

On July 25, 2022, Coloured Ties reported that the Company had purchased 62 mineral claims, in the Cadillac-Pontiac region, about 50km southwest of Val-d’Or. The claims are immediately adjacent to claims currently held by Winsome Resources, a well-funded ASX listed Lithium exploration company and Vision Lithium, a TSX-V listed Lithium explorer. The Mazérac claims are accessible by a dense network of trails and other logging roads. The area also accessible through boat or seaplane within watershed of Decelles water reservoir, hosting the Rapid-7 hydroelectric dam of Decelles.

The general area has recently attracted many lithium prospecting and exploration companies such as Brunswick Exploration, High Tide Resources, Medaro Mining, NeoTerrex Corporation (private company), Renforth Resources, Sayona Mining, Vision Lithium, and Winsome Resources.

The Cadillac-Pontiac area has gained attention due to recent discoveries of several high-grade spodumene prospects. The latest discovery of high-grade lithium prospects by Vision Lithium Inc, spurred several other exploration and drill programs within the Cadillac area. Since December 2021, approximately 4000 new claims have been registered in the greater Mazerac area and the Pontiac Sub province region, south of Val-d’Or and Rouyn-Noranda.

The claims have been acquired from prospectors, Mr. Griesbach and Junita Asihto. Mr. Griesbach is a Canadian-certified geologist with more than 40 years of mineral exploration experience across Canada, Africa, China, and Southeast Asia; Mr. Junita Asihto is a Quebec-based prospector with a strong understanding of the Mazérac region. The acquisition is subject to final TSX-V exchange approval.

On August 19, 2022, Coloured Ties has acquired another 46 mineral claims adjacent to the previous 62 claims from the same Vendor Group. The current claim block provides for a sizeable lithium exploration target and the Company will seek to monetize this asset going forward. The current claim block is surrounded by other public companies focusing on early-stage lithium exploration and substantial exploration dollars are being expending by these companies.

The Company will continue to monitor exploration activity and results obtained adjoining projects and develop an exploration plan within the area. As per initial plan, Coloured Ties is compiling a detailed geological data of the area. The adjoining property is owned by Winsome Resources, who have provided early technical summary of the area, which will be considered in understanding of prospects of the claims acquired by the Company. Winsome News Release regarding Mazerac Area can be found here:

Coloured Ties is investigating the potential of spinning the newly acquired Lithium project into a public entity via a transaction that is deemed suitable with the goal to dividend out shares in the new lithium project to existing shareholders. There is no guarantee a transaction will occur, and management will keep shareholders updated as discussions progress.

Hertz Lithium Investment

Coloured Ties has acquired a total of 3M shares in privately held Hertz Lithium Inc., which is applying to complete an Initial Public Offering on the Canadian Securities Exchange in the coming months. The shares have been acquired for investment holdings and management will continue to monitor the progress at Hertz Lithium and update shareholders.

Hertz Lithium holds the Lucky Mica Lithium Property which consists of holds one hundred and twelve (114) contiguous LM (lode mining) claims (the “Property”) for a total of 939 ha in the Maricopa County of Arizona. The Property is located approximately 10 kms southwest of the city of Wickenburg, Arizona.

From Hertz Lithium 43-101 Technical Report Dated May 18, 2022:

“Hertz now has sufficient information and data required to proceed with further exploration work with the objective of finding potential Mineral Resources on the Property. From the previous NI43-101 conducted on the property by SGS Canada Inc. (Paiement and Laporte, 2017), they were able to define a target envelope tonnage of between 330,000 and 551,000 tonnes to a depth of 60m with average grades between 0.3% and 2.5% Li2O. SGS Canada, Inc were able to identify at least seven (7) distinct pegmatite bodies on the Property, with most of the sampling and mapping to date focused on the first of these to be identified (the Lucky Mica dike). These dikes could increase the mineral potential to between 330,000 and 3.0M tonnes across the Arizona Pegmatite Belt. Hertz’s exploration plan is to target all the pegmatite bodies identified on the Property, and to explore the multiple zones of lithium mineralization to assemble an economic resource tonnage and grade.” Hertz Lithium has not completed any exploration to confirm the results from SGS Canada NI-43-101 report from 2017.

Hertz Lithium also holds an exclusive license to develop Penn State University Invention Disclosure No 2019-499 titled “A Novel Process for Extraction of Lithium from Spodumene”. This exclusive license is to develop economical technologies to extract lithium from hard rock lithium sources including spodumene, lepidolite and amblygonite.

Hertz Lithium has the worldwide rights to develop this technology as the world seeks to meet lithium demand from various hard rock lithium sources.

Kal Malhi, CEO, states: “We have positioned Coloured Ties as a significant player in the lithium exploration investment field. With our early investment in Patriot Battery Metals and recently in Hertz Lithium, and our Quebec lithium project, we offer investors a solid vehicle as an investment in the emerging lithium market. We continue to seek sound investments and partnerships that offer significant returns for our shareholders and build our Net Asset Value.”

The Company also advises that it has issued 1,900,000 stock options to directors, officers and consultants exercisable at a price of $.31 per share for a period of three years. Such options issuance is subject to exchange approval.

Central banks and the FinTech sector unite to change global payments space





The BIS, along with seven leading central banks and a cohort of private financial firms, has embarked on an ambitious venture known as Project Agorá.

Named after the Greek word for “marketplace,” this initiative stands at the forefront of exploring the potential of tokenisation to significantly enhance the operational efficiency of the monetary system worldwide.

Central to this pioneering project are the Bank of France (on behalf of the Eurosystem), the Bank of Japan, the Bank of Korea, the Bank of Mexico, the Swiss National Bank, the Bank of England, and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. These institutions have joined forces under the banner of Project Agorá, in partnership with an extensive assembly of private financial entities convened by the Institute of International Finance (IIF).

At the heart of Project Agorá is the pursuit of integrating tokenised commercial bank deposits with tokenised wholesale central bank money within a unified, public-private programmable financial platform. By harnessing the advanced capabilities of smart contracts and programmability, the project aspires to unlock new transactional possibilities that were previously infeasible or impractical, thereby fostering novel opportunities that could benefit businesses and consumers alike.

The collaborative effort seeks to address and surmount a variety of structural inefficiencies that currently plague cross-border payments. These challenges include disparate legal, regulatory, and technical standards; varying operating hours and time zones; and the heightened complexity associated with conducting financial integrity checks (such as anti-money laundering and customer verification procedures), which are often redundantly executed across multiple stages of a single transaction due to the involvement of several intermediaries.

As a beacon of experimental and exploratory projects, the BIS Innovation Hub is committed to delivering public goods to the global central banking community through initiatives like Project Agorá. In line with this mission, the BIS will soon issue a call for expressions of interest from private financial institutions eager to contribute to this ground-breaking project. The IIF will facilitate the involvement of private sector participants, extending an invitation to regulated financial institutions representing each of the seven aforementioned currencies to partake in this transformative endeavour.

TD Bank inks multi-year strategic partnership with Google Cloud





TD Bank has inked a multi-year deal with Google Cloud as it looks to streamline the development and deployment of new products and services.

The deal will see the Canadian banking group integrate the vendor’s cloud services into a wider portion of its technology solutions portfolio, a move which TD expects will enable it “to respond quickly to changing customer expectations by rolling out new features, updates, or entirely new financial products at an accelerated pace”.

This marks an expansion of the already established relationship between TD Bank and Google Cloud after the group previously adopted the vendor’s Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) for TD Securities Automated Trading (TDSAT), the Chicago-based subsidiary of its investment banking unit, TD Securities.

TDSAT uses GKE for process automation and quantitative modelling across fixed income markets, resulting in the development of a “data-driven research platform” capable of processing large research workloads in trading.

Dan Bosman, SVP and CIO of TD Securities, claims the infrastructure has so far supported TDSAT with “compute-intensive quantitative analysis” while expanding the subsidiary’s “trading volumes and portfolio size”.

TD’s new partnership with Google Cloud will see the group attempt to replicate the same level of success across its entire portfolio.

MAS launches transformative platform to combat money laundering





The MAS has unveiled Cosmic, an acronym for Collaborative Sharing of Money Laundering/Terrorism Financing Information and Cases, a new money laundering platform.

According to Business Times, launched on April 1, Cosmic stands out as the first centralised digital platform dedicated to combating money laundering, terrorism financing, and proliferation financing on a worldwide scale. This move follows the enactment of the Financial Services and Markets (Amendment) Act 2023, which, along with its subsidiary legislation, commenced on the same day to provide a solid legal foundation and safeguards for information sharing among financial institutions (FIs).

Cosmic enables participating FIs to exchange customer information when certain “red flags” indicate potential suspicious activities. The platform’s introduction is a testament to MAS’s commitment to ensuring the integrity of the financial sector, mandating participants to establish stringent policies and operational safeguards to maintain the confidentiality of the shared information. This strategic approach allows for the efficient exchange of intelligence on potential criminal activities while protecting legitimate customers.

Significantly, Cosmic was co-developed by MAS and six leading commercial banks in Singapore—OCBC, UOB, DBS, Citibank, HSBC, and Standard Chartered—which will serve as participant FIs during its initial phase. The initiative emphasizes voluntary information sharing focused on addressing key financial crime risks within the commercial banking sector, such as the misuse of legal persons, trade finance, and proliferation financing.

Loo Siew Yee, assistant managing director for policy, payments, and financial crime at MAS, highlighted that Cosmic enhances the existing collaboration between the industry and law enforcement authorities, fortifying Singapore’s reputation as a well-regulated and trusted financial hub. Similarly, Pua Xiao Wei of Citi Singapore and Loretta Yuen of OCBC have expressed their institutions’ support for Cosmic, noting its potential to ramp up anti-money laundering efforts and its significance as a development in the banking sector’s ability to combat financial crimes efficiently. DBS’ Lam Chee Kin also praised Cosmic as a “game changer,” emphasizing the careful balance between combating financial crime and ensuring legitimate customers’ access to financial services.
