Mr. Tyrone Docherty reports

DEER HORN CAPITAL SIGNS PURCHASE OPTION LOI ON FORMER FIRST SOLAR, INC. TELLURIUM PROPERTY

Deer Horn Capital Inc. has signed a binding letter of intent (LOI) with Colorado Klondike LLC to acquire a purchase option on the Colorado Klondike tellurium property located in south-central Colorado, United States. The Colorado Klondike property is a tellurium prospect held previously by First Solar Inc. as a potential primary source of tellurium for the company's cadmium-telluride (CdTe) solar panels. Colorado Klondike LLC, operated by former First Solar management, acquired the property in 2013 after First Solar terminated its worldwide raw materials exploration program.

The Colorado Geological Survey (CGS), in partnership with the Colorado School of Mines, reported on work performed by First Solar on the Colorado Klondike property in the 2015 Colorado Mineral and Energy Industry Activities 2014-2015 publication. In particular, the CGS noted:

"Surface sampling by First Solar, Inc. in 2006 found very high tellurium grades of up to 3.3% (33,000 ppm), along with locally high gold grades. Tellurium occurs principally as the native element and as altaite, a lead-telluride mineral. First Solar is the world's largest manufacturer of thin-film solar modules and tellurium is a critical element in the photovoltaic material. Tellurium grades at Klondike were the highest encountered in the company's nationwide exploration program. First Solar acquired the land in 2010 and began systematic exploration including geophysical investigations. However, the company discontinued their tellurium development program in early 2012 and sold the property to Colorado Klondike LLC."

Surface samples such as these are preliminary in nature and not conclusive evidence of the likelihood of a mineral deposit.

"We're very happy to be expanding our tellurium property portfolio at a time when technology is discovering important new applications for the metal," said Deer Horn president and CEO Tyrone Docherty. "It's also important that Colorado Klondike gives us an asset that can be explored for most of the year."

First Solar also conducted geophysics, drill program planning and permitting on the Colorado Property, preparing for an extensive exploration program before selling the property to Colorado Klondike LLC.

Easily Accessible with Mostly Year-Round Exploration

The Colorado Klondike property is located 10 miles (16 km) from the small town of Saguache and is easily accessible via paved and gravel roads. It is situated on the lower, south-facing slopes of the Cochetopa Hills on the northwest margin of the semi-arid San Luis Valley. Although the average elevation is 9300 ft (2835 m), the area receives just 40-50 inches (100-150 cm) of snow in a typical winter due to its sheltered position east of the Continental Divide. Annual precipitation averages 12-14 inches (30-36 cm). Most exploration work can be performed year-round.

Deer Horn is conducting further due diligence on the property in anticipation of signing a full agreement later in the year.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Deer Horn Capital Inc. (CSE: DHC, OTCBB: GODYF) (the “Company” or “Deer Horn”), reports that, according to researchers at Colorado State University, generating electricity from cadmium-telluride photovoltaics (CdTe PV) has now become less expensive than electricity from fossil fuels in many utility-scale applications.

“The levelized cost of energy (LCOE) from CdTe PV is ~$0.04/kWh,” says the university in a March 2018 report, “while the national average LCOE from all sources is $0.11/kWh.” The report also states that lifecycle emissions of cadmium from CdTe PV are lower than those from traditional electricity generation for the same amount of energy generated. “CdTe uses approximately one one-hundredth the amount of semiconductor materials used for c-silicon PV (the most common PV in use today) and can be processed 24 times faster than c-silicon.”

Recent discoveries and improvements in Cd-Te thin film construction continue to raise the technology’s solar efficiency, a measurement that quantifies a solar panel’s ability to convert sunlight into electricity. As a result, CdTe PV use is growing rapidly and now represents the second-most utilized solar cell material in the world behind silicon. The majority of silicon panels on the market range from 15% to 17% efficiency, with the most expensive panels reaching efficiencies of 22%. First Solar Inc, the world’s largest manufacturer of CdTe PV, has achieved efficiencies of over 22% with CdTe PV and continues to investigate methods of achieving even higher efficiencies.

According to Colorado State University, recent achievements in CdTe PV “…pave a clear path toward even higher cell efficiencies and make 25 percent a realistic near-term (three-year) goal and 30 percent a reachable long-term goal.”

As CdTe PV becomes more efficient and demand for the technology grows, manufacturers must secure dependable, long-term sources of tellurium. Currently, 90% of the world’s tellurium comes from copper refining. As copper grades decline, however, copper producers are turning to different recovery methods that exclude tellurium. Major CdTe PV manufacturers, as a result, are seeking primary sources of tellurium not dependent on copper mining.

“We are following these advances for cadmium-telluride solar panels closely,” said Tyrone Docherty, president and CEO of Deer Horn Capital. “Our Deer Horn gold-silver-tellurium property has been on the solar industry radar for some time, as we may have the only mineral property in North America with an NI 43-101 compliant tellurium resource. We’ve also completed a positive Preliminary Economic Assessment for mining a portion of the known mineralized system.”

Exploration to date at Deer Horn has outlined several key mineral zones across a 2.4-kilometer strike length that remain open for expansion in three directions. The property has been recognized by both First Solar Inc. and the United States Geological Survey as an important potential source of tellurium, not only for the solar power industry, but also for a host of emerging technologies.

“We believe properties with primary tellurium resources will become increasingly valuable in both the near and long term,” added Docherty. “As a result, Deer Horn Capital is investigating additional tellurium projects in North America.”

2018-09-20 08:30 ET - News Release


VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Deer Horn Capital Inc. (CSE: DHC, OTCBB: GODYF) (the “Company” or “Deer Horn”), reports that researchers working on more efficient batteries for electronic cars are claiming significant results with new lithium-tellurium (Li-Te) battery systems. In a January 2016 article, the peer-reviewed Journal of Applied Electrochemistry reports development of an “Li-Te rechargeable cell with exceptionally high specific capacity and cycling stability at high charge/discharge rates…”

The article, titled “A lithium–tellurium rechargeable battery with exceptional cycling stability” by Toshinari Koketsu, Benjamin Paul, Chao Wu, and Ralph Kraehnert reports that “Longterm cyclability tests involving 1000 charge/discharge cycles at 10C rate delivered an unprecedented specific capacity…at 100% efficiency.”

This may be good news for the electric vehicle industry. In the United States, new electric car sales surged by 72% in 2017, pushing total ownership to over 1 million vehicles. A study by the International Energy Agency predicts that “The number of electric vehicles on the road around the world will hit 125 million by 2030.”

Among the biggest obstacles to widespread adoption of electric cars are charging problems, lack of power and short travelling distances—all related to current battery technology. Millions are spent each year on researching and building lighter and more efficient batteries that will bring electric cars closer to the performance of combustion engine vehicles. To date, the standard battery for electric cars has been lithium-ion. However, a host of new battery companies is working to either improve upon current lithium technology or build better batteries with new materials.

The Financial Times recently reported how venture capital funds have already poured over $1 billion into car battery development, investigating better lithium-ion construction, new materials and other advancements such as solid state batteries. The discovery of efficiencies with Li-Te battery systems represents an important discovery from this research and development.

“We’re seeing more and more promising research into the application of tellurium for solving major technology and societal problems,” said Deer Horn President and CEO Tyrone Docherty. “This latest development for Li-Te batteries is one of many recent intriguing findings that we have reported over the past two years.”

Docherty added that solar power, thermo-electric devices and consumer electronics currently consume nearly three quarters of the world’s tellurium. “Solar power is on an exponential growth curve worldwide, while growing consumer electronics consumption will also contribute to higher tellurium consumption.”

Research and Markets’ latest tellurium report, Global Tellurium Market 2018-2022, forecasts a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3% for tellurium consumption from 2018 to 2022.

“Considering potential supply issues and ongoing technology discoveries,” said Docherty, “we believe there will be stresses on tellurium supplies looking ahead.”

Deer Horn Capital is advancing its Deer Horn gold-silver-tellurium property in west-central British Columbia. “While there has recently been a flood of juniors jumping into the lithium market due to electric vehicle growth,” said Docherty, “we’re probably the only junior miner focused on tellurium exploration and development.”

Added Docherty, “When you add in potential supply disruptions due to changes in copper refining, we believe primary sources of tellurium will be in high demand in the future. This is why we continue to look for additional high-grade tellurium projects in North America.”

Found this info at US geological survey

Tellurium is presently recovered as a primary ore from only two districts in the world; these are the gold-tellurium epithermal vein deposits located adjacent to one another at Dashuigou and Majiagou (Sichuan Province) in southwestern China, and the epithermal-like mineralization at the Kankberg deposit in the Skellefteå VMS district of Västerbotten County, Sweden. Combined, these two groups of deposits account for about 15 percent (about 70 metric tons) of the annual global production of 450 to 470 metric tons of tellurium.

Most of the world’s tellurium, however, is produced as a byproduct of the mining of porphyry copper deposits. These deposits typically yield concentrations of 1 to 4 percent tellurium in the anode slimes recovered during copper refining. Present production of tellurium from the United States is solely from the anode slimes at ASARCO LLC’s copper refinery in Amarillo, Texas, and may total about 50 metric tons per year.
