United States Antimony Corporation (USAC) NYSE (uamy) is a rapidly growing natural resource company that is increasing its raw material supply of antimony from properties in Mexico and third parties around the world. USAC has produced various antimony products since 1969 and is a fully integrated mining, transportation, milling, smelting, and selling company.  USAC operates the only significant antimony smelter in the United States and it is in a "sold out" condition. The Company has proven experience in underground and open pit mining, flotation and gravimetric milling, crushing and screening, dry grinding, cyanide leaching, precious metal refining, pyro-metallurgy, and marketing.

Operations include a smelter and a precious metal refinery in Montana, and a smelter and three mills in Mexico. Three Mexican properties supply direct shipping ore (DSO) or mill feed for the Mexican operations. The Los Juarez property and mill at Puerto Blanco are being permitted to start gold and silver production that will supplement the antimony values and identify the Company as a "precious metal producer." 

USAC owns 100% of the Bear River Zeolite, Corp. mine in southeast Idaho that management  regards as one of the best zeolite properties in the world due to its high cation exchange capacity, low sodium content, hardness,  uniformity, high potassium content, large surface area, and low clay and impurity content.

U. S. ANTIMONY ANNOUNCES RAIL SERVICE FOR ZEOLITE DELIVERY
AND TESTING OF GOLD AND SILVER LEACH PLANT

HIGHLIGHTS

1.    Concerns over climate change and environmental remediation have escalated worldwide. BRZ is a low-cost natural material which can remediate a wide variety of problems including water and air pollution, soil contamination, nuclear remediation, landfill issues, HAZMAT sites, heavy metal contamination, odors from CAFOs (concentrated animal feed operations), petroleum spills, sewage treatment, composting, and slaughter house and rendering plant contamination and odors  

2.    BRZ plans to provide delivery of large quantities of bulk BRZ by rail to reduce transportation, packaging, and labor costs by up to $100.00 per ton and to make BRZ significantly more viable for remediation projects.

3.    Systematic test work of the Puerto Blanco mill is underway to start the leach plant in order to enhance recoveries of gold and silver from the Los Juarez mine. The mill has been on care and maintenance for four years.

4.    The price of antimony metal is gradually recovering.

November 4, 2019. Thompson Falls, Montana. United States Antimony Corporation (“USAC”, NYSE American “UAMY”) announces plans to provide rail delivery of bulk Bear River Zeolite (BRZ) zeolite to reduce transportation, packaging, and labor costs by up to $100.00 per ton. BRZ has vigorously pursued nearly all potential markets for the last nineteen years to become consistently profitable. BRZ has an advantage over other domestic and foreign zeolites in terms of purity, hardness, color, low-sodium, high exchange rates for cations such as ammonium, radioactive nuclides, and most heavy metals, and its ability to hold up to 55% of its weight in water. Reducing costs by up to $100.00 per ton will open major markets and increase sales without hindering profitability.

At the present time, the United States and most countries around the world have become very conscious about climate change and the long-term impact on the environment. Zeolites have the ability to solve many of the problems associated with man-made climate deterioration. Synthetic zeolites have been engineered for specific applications but are highly expensive. BRZ is a natural zeolite that is not expensive. In order to take advantage of this new trend and to break into a much larger market, BRZ will offer the best product at economical prices.   

Systematic testing of the gold, silver, and antimony mill at Puerto Blanco for the Los Juarez mine is underway. The mill has been on care and maintenance for four years. Ball mill liners, water systems, and new equipment have been installed.  Completion of the laboratory is imminent which will allow the startup of the leach to enhance gold and silver recovery.   

                        Estimated sales during October 2019 are as follows:

October 2019

Antimony pounds

131,934

BRZ zeolite tons

1,133

The average Rotterdam price for antimony metal during October 2019 was $6,190 per metric ton or $2.80   per pound. The price of antimony is now starting a slow upward trend. Steps to lower the costs of antimony production have included lowering the mining costs in Mexico, renegotiating North American contracts, and plant improvements

CEO John Lawrence said “The recent worldwide concerns over climate change and environmental remediation pose an excellent target for increasing sales andprofitability of BRZ. Installing equipment to provide rail delivery will allow BRZ to provide one of the highest quality zeolites in large quantities at the lowest price.”
