LOS ANGELES, Aug. 03, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via IBN – IBN, a multifaceted communications organization engaged in connecting public companies to the investment community, is pleased to announce the release of the latest episode of The Bell2Bell Podcast as part of its sustained effort to provide specialized content distribution via widespread syndication channels.
The Bell2Bell Podcast delivers informative updates and exclusive interviews with executives operating in fast-moving industries. Bell2Bell’s latest podcast features Tyrone Docherty, President & CEO of First Tellurium Corp. (CSE: FTEL) (OTCQB: FSTTF), a company committed to exploring for and providing essential and critical metals, including tellurium, gold, silver, copper and tungsten, for North American markets.
To begin the interview, Docherty provided an introduction to the company’s business model and operating markets.
“First Tellurium has a wonderful, high-grade gold and silver property in Canada, but it comes with this unique mineral, Tellurium, which is listed by both the United States and Canadian governments as critical,” said Docherty. “Tellurium has come into the fore over the last couple of decades, because it is used in solar panels by U.S. corporation First Solar, which uses a mixture of cadmium and tellurium, as opposed to different solar panels coming out of China. Tellurium is very important there, and it’s a very rare metal.”
“Another development within the last year-and-a-half is that the University of British Columbia has put a patent on a lithium-tellurium battery that is far better than a lithium-ion battery. This is interesting, because we’re going to have dissimilar industries, such as solar panels and batteries, that could be in high demand for our tellurium. First Tellurium is, in fact, the only tellurium-focused junior in the world. There are a lot of companies looking for lithium and cobalt, but, when it comes to tellurium, we are the only company. I joke that we should call ourselves First & Only Tellurium. We’re the people who have the tellurium, and the people who need it will be knocking on our door.”
Docherty then discussed his professional background.
“I’m different from a lot of presidents and CEOs of junior companies in the fact that I don’t run more than one company at a time… My previous company was called Quinto Mining… When I took over, it had a market cap of C$4 million, and I was lucky enough to sell it 11 years later for C$175 million. Instead of taking the cash, we took shares in the company that acquired us… and ended up owning around 20-21% of that company. They sold two-and-a-half years later for C$4.9 billion… I was basically retired then, in 2008… but when you get special projects like Deer Horn thrown in your lap, it was so spectacular that I had to put on the work boots again and talk about mining. The opportunity is very, very good indeed.”
