Interview with Stan Bharti, Chairman and Acting CEO of Aberdeen International (TSX: AAB): a Successful Global Resource Investment Company and Merchant Bank
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


Aberdeen International (TSX: AAB) is a global resource investment company and merchant bank focused on small-cap companies in the mining and metals sector. We learned from Stan Bharti, Chairman and acting CEO of Aberdeen International, who has a very successful track record, that today the company has two major investments: one is close to a US $15 million investment in a private South-African platinum-palladium company called African Thunder, and the other is an investment in one of the largest advanced lithium resources in the world called Lithium X, located in Argentina. African Thunder is a producing mine with close to a million ounces of platinum and palladium and a huge exploration upside that was put on standby because of low prices, but there is a plan to reactivate it in the beginning of 2017. Aberdeen owns approximately 50% of African Thunder with the other 50% owned by a company in Switzerland. Lithium X is a well-developed resource that is completing its feasibility study. According to Mr. Bharti, these are both world-class assets that, over the next two or three years, in a good market, will unlock substantial value for Aberdeen. In addition, Aberdeen had several other assets, including coal and gold that have been sold to build a small resource fund that helps fund investments like the lithium project. Aberdeen manages this fund, which has already grown from about $8 million to $10 million in assets in less than a year.
