Infinity Stone Ventures (CSE: GEMS)(OTC: GEMSF) CEO Zayn Kalyan on Drilling for Graphite & Lithium in Stable Jurisdictions
Gerardo Del Real: This is Gerardo Del Real with Resource Stock Digest. Joining me today is the CEO of Infinity Stone Ventures, Mr. Zayn Kalyan. Zayn, great to have you back on. How are you?
Zayn Kalyan: Good. Thanks for having me, Gerardo. Things are great. We're very active over the past couple weeks, and I'm pretty excited about what's coming up.
Gerardo Del Real: Let's talk about that activity, because it's pretty meaningful. You engaged with LGC Standards for pegmatite bulk sample processing. You followed that up with an update on the Rockstone Drill Program. That's a graphite project. And then you just announced here the discovery of lithium at another pegmatite project. So, I wanted to get you on just to summarize the recent bit of news. You're clearly busy on multiple fronts, which is of course setting up for an exciting 2023, a lot of 2022 left, given the level of activity. Can you provide some context? How would you describe it there, Zayn?
Zayn Kalyan: Yeah, no. We initiated our first drill program on Rockstone. I think last time you and I spoke we were just starting it, and we're in the process of wrapping it up as we speak. We have decided to do another hole, which is great. We'll be announcing results from the first step out and the second step out here very shortly, and which we'll be hoping will be well received in the market. And then beyond that, just been very active in determining next steps on the Buda Lithium Pegmatite Project located very close to the Rockstone. Based upon the proximity to the Rockstone, we were in the process of just figuring out the next steps to remobilize the drill that we have active on the graphite to the lithium, which should give us some more short term results.
We put out some news today just indicating the initial sample and results that we got on the lithium, which have been really, really great, and I think very indicative of LCT mineralization, like LCT pegmatite mineralization. Typically, when you see those pathfinder elements, being the high levels of rubidium, the high levels of beryllium, those really suggest that you're in a system that will be rich in lithium. So, we're going to run the drill program. It's probably going to be a more modest size drill program just to get some initial indication, and if we get some great results on that, we'll expand it and go from there.
Gerardo Del Real: We have the Rockstone Graphite Project results to look forward to, followed by results from the Buda Project. Exciting times. Anything to add to that, Zayn? Again, I know the portfolio's pretty robust, and you're going all out on multiple fronts there, which is a good thing given the backdrop and the critical metals environment that we're in right now.
Zayn Kalyan: Yeah. I think a lot of people want to hear where we're at on the James Bay property, on the Camaro Hellcat. I think that's probably one of the most interesting to a lot of people, and where people see that there's a lot of potential upside with the success that Patriot’s had. We are still waiting for our assay results from our September preliminary prospecting trip that we had our team up there for. Once we get those initial results back, that'll inform what next steps are. There's a lot of things we want to do up there, and we're just trying to work out all the pieces to make it happen.
Gerardo Del Real: Looking forward to chatting soon, given the pace of the news flow here. I suspect it won't be too long before we have you back on. Thanks for the update, Zayn.
Zayn Kalyan: I appreciate it, Gerardo. Thank you. Yeah. We're always happy to give an update, and keep everyone informed with what we're working on.
Gerardo Del Real: Awesome. Stay tuned. Chat soon.
