Highbank is continuing expansion of its Swamp Point North location and has commissioned all site equipment and barge load-out facilities to commence production.

image description

Highbank Resources has fully commissioned its Swamp Point North sand and gravel quarry. Near proximity to $200B in LNG projects (by barge):

•Grassy Point LNG export site (40 miles)

•The Port of Prince Rupert (72 Miles)

•The Port of Stewart (38 miles)

•Kitimat (120 miles)

image description

Very lucrative resource sector: Very few publicly listed construction aggregate companies and "the sand and gravel business is growing faster than the economy as a whole - 10% a year since 2008." (NY Times - Nov. 2014).

image description

Highbanks' NI 43-101 compliant, measured and indicated- 71,712,043 ton construction aggregate (sand and gravel) resource is the largest, nearest most accessible quarry (barging a fraction of the cost of trucking same tonnage) to the proposed massive infrastructure projects at Grassy Point LNG, The Port of Prince Rupert, the Port of Stewart & Kitimat.

Swamp Point – Portland Canal & The Swamp Point Aggregate Project

This North Coast site hosts a major aggregate deposit for future shipping via a deep-water load-out facility. All mining permits are completed and approved for production.


Availability of transportation corridors is an extremely important factor for marketability of aggregates in and out of the Lower Mainland and off the BC coast. Tidewater access provides the lowest transport cost and is critical to low-value bulk products. The Swamp Point Property is located on tidewater that is easily accessible by barge and/or ship, ensuring competitive transportation costs to markets. Shipping through Prince Rupert offers access to all markets. The Port of Prince Rupert represents the most efficient land-sea route to Asian markets. It is 30 hours sailing time closer to Asia than any other port of the West Coast of North America, including Vancouver, Oakland and Los Angeles. This reduces both the time and cost of shipping. The township of Stewart provides an additional viable port. It is the northern-most deep water port in British Columbia. The Port is ice-free and navigable year-round, handles approximately 20 ship calls per annum and offers two deep-water anchorages, of which one anchorage can accommodate Panamax-class ships.

A Look at the Construction Aggregates Industry

The Contsruction Aggregates Industry and the Swamp Point Project are compelling for the following reasons:

Essential Resource - Aggregates resources have played an integral role in global society for thousands of years and will continue to do so. Aggregates remain a necessary building material and are the principal component of concrete and asphalt. Concrete is 81-85% aggregates Asphalt pavement contains approximately 95% aggregates

Well-established and Stable Industry - The Canadian construction aggregates industry sector accounts for the largest proportion of the non-fuel minerals industry.

Quality of Product - BC is considered to have access to the best aggregates in the world. Preliminary sieve analyses of the Swamp Point Property aggregates have shown a high quality construction aggregates.

Correct Specifications - The specifications for concrete and asphalt pavement have become more rigorous in recent years as engineers seek to improve the durability of their products. As a result, not all bedrock or gravel can be used for concrete or asphalt. Individual rock fragments must be hard, tough, chemically stable, free of deleterious elements, and have the right shape, surface texture, porosity and density. Swamp Point construction aggregates comply with the required specifications.

image description
Steady and Growing Demand
Construction aggregates demand mirrors population growth, which in turn demands new capital expenditures and the ongoing need for repair and replacement of infrastructures.
•Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act (FAST) at Dec 2015 - $305B USD over 5 years in road maintenance and repair.
•US and Canada are the highest consumers and producers of construction aggregates in the world.
•Canada has a $120B CDN infrastructure stimulus plan over the next 10 years.

•Near proximity to $200B CDN in BCLNG projects.
•Ontario and Quebec are Canada’s largest producers and consumers of construction aggregates. British Columbia is a strong third in the sand and gravel category at 30 million tonnes per annum.

Supply Shortage

Traditionally, demand for construction aggregates is mainly local or regional and influenced by trends in domestic construction. Shortage of gravel exists in most urban areas in North America. Demand must be satisfied by alternate sources of product as local supplies are mined out.

Question & Answer

Interview conducted with Gary Musil, Secretary/CFO/Director

Who Are the Company's emerging Competitors?

No other emerging Competitors. Polaris Minerals on Vancouver Island, an established aggregate producer, could potentially ship to Prince Rupert, however the bulk of their production is committed to California & Southern West Coast.

Does the company have a strong balance sheet, and not too much debt?

Highbank considers 2015 another important year of milestones, during a year of difficult economic and market conditions:

-April 14, 2015: Highbank’s processing plant is commissioned and produces trial runs of crushed, washed, and screened products.

-April 24, 2015: Highbank announces an independent Preliminary Economic Assessment (“PEA”) on SPN.

-May 4, 2015: Highbank deploys its barge load-out conveyor system, and delivers its first commercial shipment of 4000 tons of aggregate to a customer in the Port of Prince Rupert.

-November 1, 2015: Victor Bryant retires and takes on the role of Chairman of the Board of Directors; Director James Place, P.Geo. took over the role of CEO/President.

-Financings: 4.1 million warrants were exercised to net the treasury $498,600; and in May 2015 the Company arranged a non-interest bearing production loan totaling $900,000 to be repaid from production sales.

How does the company plan to raise capital in order to fund future growth?

Further to our news release of September 17th, 2015 whereby the Company proposed a private placement of 7.0 million shares at a price of $0.08 per share with 7.0 million warrants attached at a price of $0.15 per share if exercised within the first year and at a price of $0.20 per share if exercised within the second year; the Company is increasing the private placement from 7.0 million to 8.0 million units.

Where do you see company in one year from now from a market perspective?

Expanding production to fulfill further infrastructure and expansion in the Prince Rupert Port and nearby area (ie. Grassy Point) and the construction sites of the LNG plants, terminals, pipelines, etc.

What does the company's CFO think the most important goal is, when building value for long-term shareholders?

Increasing production to meet the expansion in the Pacific Northwest, reducing operating costs and potentially issuing dividends to shareholders will bring appreciation and increased value to the share price, and shareholders.

What sets the company apart from other, similar public companies?

Only two other public aggregate companies currently trade on the Canadian marketplace. Polaris Minerals–TSX:PLS and Athabasca Minerals: - TSX.V:ABM. We have the largest and closest deposit; a NI 43-101 compliant aggregate resource, that is on tide-water which can be shipped by barge (cheapest transportation) to an increasing market in our back yard. The potential infrastructure builds in the Port of Prince Rupert and proposed LNG projects should consume everything we can produce for the next 10+ years. We own 100% interest in the deposit, and have taken the project from discovery through permitting and pre-production development without a sponsoring brokerage.

Does company have aspirations to uplift to a larger exchange?

Yes. The Company will continue to strive to increase shareholder value and exposure than can be offered through listing on a larger exchange.

What are a few additional benefits of being a heavily invested shareholder?

Low share capitalization for a junior public company that is soon to be going into production for a capital expenditure of approximately $10.2 million.
