AIM Exploration Update of India Steel Policy $AEXE.us

  • With the formation of its new joint venture, AIM Exploration Dubai, will be poised to take advantage of coming policy changes within the Indian steel sector
  • Ministry of Steel sources state that India will soon require the use of domestic steel in future government infrastructure projects

HENDERSON, NV / May 25, 2017 / AIM EXPLORATION INC. UPDATE of potential changes in Indian Steel Policy.

AIM Exploration Inc. (the “Company”) (OTC PINK: AEXE) is excited to report the Company, with the formation of its new joint venture, AIM Exploration Dubai, will be poised to take advantage of coming policy changes within the Indian steel sector.

Ministry of Steel sources state that India will soon require the use of domestic steel in future government infrastructure projects. Government sources state that billions of dollars are being invested into steel-intensive infrastructure projects, including ports, roads, railways, and power facilities.

“Current level of capacity utilisation of domestic steel producers is below 80%,” said Sanak Mishra, secretary-general of the Indian Steel Association in New Delhi. “If demand picks up on account of increased government spending on infrastructure and government mandates the use of domestic steel in such projects, the domestic steel producers are fully capable of raising the production level.”

The new steel policy aims to protect the Indian steel sector, the third largest in the world, from cheap imports. “The preference in procurement will enhance demand and thus production. Definitely it is ‘Make in Steel’ and thus ‘Make in India,'” Steel Minister, Chaudhary Birender Singh, told Reuters. “It is preference with no compromise on quality and competitive pricing. To use domestic produce is an acceptable norm.” The government expects the new steel policy to bolster domestic steel companies and to attract investment from global steelmakers.

Along with a “Make in Steel” and “Make in India” policy, India wants to triple steel production in the next decade and produce higher value steel, such as automotive steel. To achieve the goal of higher value steel, the Ministry of Steel has established the Steel Research and Technology Mission of India (SRTMI). It is an initiative aimed at providing the steel sector with cutting edge technologies and access to human resources. The Steel Industry-Academia Interface (SIAI) and the Operating Committee on R&D are two new platforms within the SRTMI which will synergize a human resource pool with continual research and technological development.

Bob Todhunter, President, stated, “This should have a very positive affect for the India steel market which makes us feel even more confident that the market for AIM’s anthracite will grow alongside the projected growth of India’s steel sector.”

“We welcome our audience to view our website: http://aimexploration.com/.”

“We also welcome people to follow our twitter feed at www.twitter.com/aexeqb, which has 5,000 followers, and is growing. This gives us an indication that clean energy is a global concern and enforces our belief that is why we need to carry out our objective of mining clean high BTU anthracite coal,” said J.R. (Bob) Todhunter.

About Aim Exploration:

The Company is an Anthracite coal mining and exploration company and plans to mine 1,000 hectares of land. Putting this into perspective 1,000 hectares is 3 times the size of Central Park. We have expertise in business, mining, and legal with our distinguished board of directors. We have amicable relationships with all parties involved in mining in Peru. We are a SEC reporting publicly traded company with the symbol (OTC: AEXE).

Tartisan Resources Corp. Completes the Purchase of the Ichuna Copper-Silver Property in Peru $TTC.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 5:22 PM on Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

Tartisan logo copy

  • Completed the acquisition of the Ichuña Copper-Silver property in located in the Department of Moquegua in Southern Peru
  • Entered into an agreement with Duran Ventures Inc. to acquire 100 per cent interest

Toronto, Ontario – Tartisan Resources Corp. (CSE: TTC) (“Tartisan”, or the “Company”) has completed the acquisition of the Ichuña Copper-Silver property in located in the Department of Moquegua in Southern Peru.

Tartisan entered into an agreement with Duran Ventures Inc. (“Duran”) to acquire 100 per cent interest in the Ichuña copper-silver property by paying Duran a cash payment $50,000 CDN and issuing 500,000 shares. Duran retains a 2% NSR of which Tartisan may purchase half (1%) of the NSR for $500,000.

The Ichuña property is contiguous to San Gabriel project owned by Peru’s largest mining company Minas Buenaventura (“Buenaventura”). The San Gabriel project was a blind discovery in 2008 and now is reported to contain a resource of 13 million tonnes at 5.26 g/t Au for 2.2 million ounces in the measured, indicated and inferred categories (source Buenaventura website 2017 corporate presentation page 15). Buenaventura consolidated its interest in the project by purchasing Goldfield’s interest in 2014 and revised the project from a large open pit operation to a more profitable underground operation. The main mineralized zone on the San Gabriel project is located just 3 kilometres from the property boundary with Tartisan.

The previous owner acquired the 1,000-hectare Ichuña Property in 2006 before the discovery at San Gabriel. Extensive high-grade surface Cu-Ag mineralization was initially observed by Duran’s geologists and was later followed up by a property wide geophysical survey in 2010. The work identified a large IP geophysical anomaly trending northwest-southeast measuring over 1,500 metres in length. The main mineralized zone on Buenaventura’s San Gabriel project called the Canahuire Zone was a blind target with a strong geophysical response. Economic mineralization in the Canahuire zone does not outcrop at surface and follows a recessive area. The geophysical anomaly on Ichuña has similar characteristics to the Canahuire zone whereby the IP anomaly trends along a recessive area with no outcrop.

Historic work on the property by Duran included seven diamond drill holes totaling 2,754 metres. Drilling did not test the geophysical anomaly. Tartisan intends to test this anomaly with diamond drilling. Initial work will comprise of community relations followed by detailed magnetic surveys. The Company is confident in obtaining community approvals since Buenaventura recently had their Environmental Impact Assessment approved.

Jeff Reeder, PGeo, a qualified person in the context of National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed and approved the technical content of this news release.

Tartisan Resources Corp. common shares are listed on the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE:TTC). Following the above transaction, there are 72,862,443 shares outstanding (88,905,827 fully diluted).

For further information, please contact Mr. D. Mark Appleby, President & CEO and a Director of the Company, at 416-804-0280 (mark@tartisanresources.com),. Additional information about Tartisan can be found at the Company’s website at www.tartisanresources.com or on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

This news release may contain forward-looking statements including but not limited to comments regarding the timing and content of upcoming work programs, geological interpretations, receipt of property titles, potential mineral recovery processes, etc. Forward-looking statements address future events and conditions and therefore, involve inherent risks and uncertainties. Actual results may differ materially from those currently anticipated in such statements.

  • Announced the acquisition of a 37 mineral claims units package (4 claims) totalling 592 hectares, situated in Holloway and Marriott Townships in the Larder Lake Mining Division, District of Cochrane, Province of Ontario, contiguous to the PG-101 Gold Property
  • With this acquisition, the PG-101 property now consists of 110 mining claims (195 mineral claim units) covering 3,122.8 hectares situated in the Larder Lake mining division

ROUYN-NORANDA, QUEBEC–(May 24, 2017) - Explor Resources Inc. (“Explor” or the “Corporation“) (TSX VENTURE:EXS)(OTCQB:EXSFF)(FRANKFURT:E1H1)(BERLIN:E1H1) is pleased to announce the acquisition of a 37 mineral claims units package (4 claims) totalling 592 hectares, situated in Holloway and Marriott Townships in the Larder Lake Mining Division, District of Cochrane, Province of Ontario, contiguous to the PG-101 Gold Property. With this acquisition, the PG-101 property now consists of 110 mining claims (195 mineral claim units) covering 3,122.8 hectares situated in the Larder Lake mining division, district of Cochrane, in the Marriott and Halloway Townships, Ontario.

Explor Resources Inc., will pay a total of $7,000 CDN and issue 300,000 common shares for an Option to acquire a 100 % interest in the Property. The Optionors have retained a 2.0% NSR in the property. This acquisition is subject to the approval of The TSX Venture Exchange.

The PG -101 additional claims are contiguous to the claim group where Explor’s intersected 52.01 g/t Au over 3.0 m (Press Release of March 24, 2009) and adjacent to the eastern boundary of Kirkland Lake Gold’s former producing Holt Mine Property and only a few kilometers east of their Holloway Mine property. Historic production (1988-2004) from the Holt (McDermott) Mine totals 8.18 million tons at a grade of 0.162 opt Au1(7.42 million tonnes @ 5.6 gpt Au). Measured and indicated resources reported as of Dec. 31, 2016 for the Holt Mine are 6.970 million tonnes at a grade of 4.2 gpt Au2. Production at the Holloway Mine to 2004 is reported as 4.73 million tons at a grade of 0.166 opt Au1 (4.29 million tonnes @ 5.7gpt Au). Measured and indicated resources reported as of Dec. 31, 2016 for the Holloway Mine are 1.370 million tonnes at a grade of 5.3 gpt Au2. Several other smaller deposits in the Harker-Holloway gold camp and in the vicinity of the PG-101 Property include the Buffonta, Mattawasaga and East zone deposits.

The PG-101 Property is underlain by the same succession of mafic volcanic flows, breccias, and tuffs that host the known gold deposits of the area. These volcanic rocks are cut by ENE trending faults that splay from the Porcupine-Destor fault zone (“PDFZ”). The PDFZ is a major deformation zone that crosses along the north boundary of the PG-101 claims in Marriott Township. Proximity to the PDFZ, the Kirkland-Larder Lake Break and other similar regional faults are characteristic of significant gold deposits of the Eastern Abitibi greenstone belt.

Explor plans to continue its exploration program on the PG-101 Property with the integration of this property with the existing property by the compilation of historic work, geological modeling, and the identification of high priority targets. Explor plans to start its exploration program in the spring of 2017. Explor plans on drilling on geophysical targets that were discovered in the fall of 2016.

  • Signed definitive agreement with Panag Pharma Inc. for the development and commercialization of novel cannabinoid based formulations for the treatment of pain and inflammation
  • Combined total market potential of both products in the USA in 2014 is estimated over US$5.5 billion

OTTAWA, ONTARIO–(May 23, 2017) - Tetra Bio-Pharma Inc. (“Tetra” or the “Company“) (CSE:TBP)(CSE:TBP.CN)(CNSX:TBP)(OTCQB:TBPMF), announced today it has signed a definitive agreement with Panag Pharma Inc. for the development and commercialization of novel cannabinoid based formulations for the treatment of pain and inflammation. Combined total market potential of both products in the USA in 2014 is estimated over US$5.5 billion. The recent press release on May 17th for the filing of a patent in ocular disease combined with the patents from Panag in the ocular space make this agreement very lucrative.

Per the definitive agreement, Tetra will have exclusive access to sell the ocular and topical drug products in North America with right of first negotiation for outside U.S. and Canadian territories. In addition, Tetra will have a right of first negotiation for future cannabinoid-based products.

Tetra will work in close collaboration with Panag’s team of experts to ensure a rapid and successful development leading to marketing authorization. Panag will continue work in the development of novel products for unmet medical need and Tetra will take the lead in commercializing these novel drug products.

“We are very pleased to announce this partnership with Panag as we work towards building an innovative product pipeline focused on cannabis,” said Andre Rancourt, CEO of Tetra Bio-Pharma. “Tetra is committed to generating revenues in 2017 by launching several products in the retail market through its partnership with Panag.”

Panag has developed potential new cannabinoid-based therapies for ocular and topical anti-inflammatory and pain markets. The total ocular anti-inflammatory market was estimated at over $3 billion in the USA in 2014 and includes conditions such as post-op inflammation, allergic conjunctivitis and inflammatory dry eye. Panag also developed a cannabinoid topical drug product for the local treatment of pain and inflammation. In 2014, the over the counter sales of topical analgesics were estimated at over $2.5 billion according to IMS.

“We will prioritize the development of the ocular therapy as this is a promising innovative product with high medical need and a significant potential financial reward,” said Guy Chamberland, Chief Scientific Officer of Tetra Bio-Pharma. Tetra has positioned itself to become a leader in topical pain relief.

Corporate Update:

Tetra changed today at the opening of the U.S. markets its OTCQB stock symbol to TBPMF.

The Company issued 501,800 new shares as part as of a service agreement as previously announced in a news release on June 20, 2016.

About Beauce Gold Property 

The Beauce Gold project is a unique, historically prolific gold field located in the municipality of Saint-Simon-les-Mines in the Beauce region of Southern Quebec. Comprising of a block of 145 claims 100 per cent owned by HPQ, the project area hosts a six-kilometre-long unconsolidated gold-bearing sedimentary unit (a lower saprolite and an upper brown diamictite). The gold in saprolite indicates a close proximity to a bedrock source of gold, providing possible further exploration discoveries.

  • 176 acres of real estate 100 per cent owned by HPQ;
  • The property once held four historical gold mining operations;
  • The property produced the largest gold nuggets in Canadian mining history (St-Onge nugget, 43 ounces; McDonald nugget, 45 ounces; Kilgour nugget, 51 ounces). Source: W. Chapamn 1881 Gold Mines of Beauce, F. Drouin 2003 Les Mines D’Or En Beauce
