  • Intersected various mineralized zones
  • Most significant was 337.5m of continuous mineralization grading 0.76 g/t gold from 2 to 339.5m depth,
  • Including a higher grade intercept of 124.5m grading 0.98 g/t gold from 53.0 to 177.5m

January 23, 2018                                                                                                                    TSX-V: AMK

Cardston, AB – American Creek Resources Ltd (TSX-V: AMK) (the “Corporation”) is pleased to report on an additional three holes from JV partner Tudor Gold’s (“Tudor”) 2017 drill program on the Copper Belle zone at the Treaty Creek Project located in the Golden Triangle of northwestern British Columbia.

CB-17-27, a step-out hole drilled on the Copper Belle zone, intersected various mineralized zones where the most significant was 337.5m of continuous mineralization grading 0.76 g/t gold from 2 to 339.5m depth, including a higher grade intercept of 124.5m grading 0.98 g/t gold from 53.0 to 177.5mHole CB-17-27 was a 602m hole that was collared adjacent to the west side of the Treaty glacier where ice ablation (glacier melt-back) has exposed new opportunities for exploration access. Hole CB-17-27 is 81m southeast of CB-16-03 that graded 1.11 g/t Au for 58m from 88 to 146m; and 0.97 g/t Au for 122m from 304 to 426m. Hole CB-16-03 was drilled uphill at a higher elevation.  For locations of the other holes in this News Release please see the map.

Drill results for holes CB-17-27, CB-17-28 and CB-17-30 are summarized in the table below:

Walter Storm, President and CEO, stated: “As we analyze Treaty Creek from an overview perspective we find a very compelling image:   Our discoveries, as expected, are closely related to the now-famous “Red Line” (Triassic/Jurassic contact), as predicted in the seminal research report by British Columbia government geologists Kyba and Nelson.  The Sulphurets Fault (coincident with the Red Line), weaves its way for over 20 kms from the southern end where the Kerr, Kerr Deep and Valley of the Kings deposits are located, winding its way northward through the Sulphurets, Mitchell, Snowfields, Iron Cap and Iron Cap Deep discoveries before crossing into Treaty Creek and up to the Copper Belle and GR2 zones.  As observed in the Kyba/Nelson research report, major discoveries lie generally within 2 kms of the Red Line and that is the case with all these deposits.  Tudor has a 3 km unexplored gap between the Copper Belle discovery and the Seabridge Gold’s Iron Cap deposit, in which our MagnetoTelluric Geophysics survey identifies strong anomalous targets that have not yet been drilled.  Results from Tudor Gold’s drilling in 2017 show that in the Copper Bell zone, gold mineralization is expanding northward and eastward with improving grades, increasing copper and silver credits, not to mention other promising areas within the zone like Hole CB-17-26 which returned 149.1m of 1.78 g/t gold.”

“This prolific hdyrothermal system which hosts the many gold deposits of Seabridge Gold and Pretium Resources, as well as the nascent gold mineralization currently being drilled on Tudor Gold’s Treaty Creek property, is known as one of the seven largest hydrothermal systems in the world for hosting porphyry-type mineral deposits of gold and copper-gold (Alldrick).  Moreover, Seabridge Gold’s KSM property is currently recognized as hosting the world’s largest undeveloped reserves of copper and gold.  In close proximity to these reserves are Pretium Resources’ very large, porphyry gold Snowfields deposit and its high-grade, Valley of the Kings gold mine, the latter recently having entered into commercial production.  This is an excellent area in which to be looking for another “elephant” and early indications are that mineralization continues onto the Treaty property, right past an arbitrary line called a ‘claim boundary’.”

Darren Blaney, President and CEO of American Creek stated: “At this very preliminary stage of exploration, we have already located significant zones of higher grade gold within the Copper Belle system. Including wide intersections of higher grade close to surface. Those higher grade sections add great promise as to the potential of the project going forward. Further, the MT Survey suggests that this deposit is open in all directions, including towards Seabridge’s Iron Cap discovery located several kilometers to the south.”

“Of major significance is the fact that both the Copper Belle and GR2 are situated on the northern side of the mountains and glacier…the same mountains and glacier that has forced Seabridge Gold to propose an expensive twin tunnel system in order to tunnel under the glacier to access their KSM project gold located to the south. Being advantageously located on the northern side, the Copper Belle and GR2 do not require tunnels for access and are in fact located closer to critical infrastructure…and with much improved logistics.”

The Copper Belle 2017 resource delineation drill program comprised 27 holes to depths below 700m (an estimated 13,722m) and step-outs of 50m where topography permitted.  Results from drill hole CB-17-29 at Copper Belle are still pending. Drill holes were targeted oblique to the northwesterly plunge of the main mineralized zone. A block of delineated mineralization will form the basis for a preliminary resource estimate. All drill holes were down hole surveyed at 25m stations using a Reflex Multi-shot device.

Tudor’s 2016 Magnetotelluric Geophysical Survey program (MT Survey) was effectively utilized as a guide for the drill program. The MT Survey suggests that the mineralization continues to the southwest, toward the Iron Cap deposit of Seabridge Gold Inc. The MT Survey also suggests that the mineralized zone continues in all directions. Tudor’s 2017 drill program was located five kilometers north of the Iron Cap deposit and Tudor intends to step out to the south in its 2018 program to see if it can determine a relationship between the two areas.

Background on the Treaty Creek Project

The Treaty Creek Project is situated immediately north of Seabridge Gold’s KSM property and near Pretium’s Valley of the Kings Mine, both of which are located in BC’s Golden Triangle along the Sulphurets and Brucejack fault systems that continue northward into the Treaty Creek property.

Tudor conducted a major drill program (approximately 20,000 metres) on the Treaty Creek property this past summer. The objective of the drill program was to define a gold resource on the Copper Belle zone and to determine the future potential of the high grade gold/silver/zinc GR2 zone located in a separate area adjacent to the Copper Belle.

The Treaty Creek Project is a joint venture between Tudor, Teuton Resources Corp., and American Creek. Tudor is the operator and holds a 60% interest with both American Creek and Teuton each holding respective 20% carried interests in the property (fully carried until a production notice is given).

  • The Corporation recorded revenue of $10.3 million in the second quarter based on an average gold price of $1,612 per ounce (US $1,268) and 5,444 ounces sold combined with toll milling activities.

MONTREAL, Jan. 18, 2018 – MONARQUES GOLD CORPORATION (“Monarques” or the “Corporation”) (TSX.V:MQR) (OTCMKTS:MRQRF) (FRANKFURT:MR7) is pleased to report its production results and highlights for the second quarter ended December 31, 2017 (“Q2 2018”). All amounts are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise indicated.

Q2 2018 Production Highlights

  • Monarques produced 5,444 ounces of gold in Q2 2018, a 62% increase over the 3,380 ounces produced in the prior quarter by the previous owner, and a 16% increase over the quarterly average of 4,715 ounces produced during the prior nine-month period.
  • The Corporation recorded revenue of $10.3 million in the second quarter based on an average gold price of $1,612 per ounce (US $1,268) and 5,444 ounces sold combined with toll milling activities.
  • The Corporation reported strong results from its drilling program at the Beaufor mine, including 61.48 g/t Au over 3.9 metres (see press release dated January 11, 2018), which confirms the strong exploration potential in the area east of Zone Q.

“We exceeded our target for the quarter by producing more gold than anticipated,” said Jean-Marc Lacoste, President and Chief Executive Officer of Monarques. “Our toll milling activities were also strong. With the addition of Eldorado Gold (TSX:ELD; NYSE:EGO) and Nottaway Resources, the Camflo mill operated at 72% capacity during the last quarter, and based on the contracts signed for 2018 with Nottaway and Wallbridge Mining, among others, we expect to continue to increase mill productivity in the next quarter.  On the exploration side, our recent drilling program at Beaufor was a success, and we plan to continue drilling to increase the mine’s gold resource.”


 

Q2 2018 Corporate Highlights

  • On October 2, 2017, Monarques completed the acquisition of Richmont Mines’ Quebec assets, combined with a $6.5 million financing and a US $4.0 million credit facility (see press release).
  • On October 26, 2017, Monarques announced the results of an updated NI 43-101 Mineral Resource Estimate on its wholly-owned Wasamac gold project, which established a Measured and Indicated resource of 2,587,900 ounces and an Inferred resource of 293,900 ounces of gold (see press release).
  • On December 14, 2017, Monarques reported strong results from its drilling program at the Croinor Gold deposit, including 7.84 g/t Au over 9.0 metres (29.5 feet) (see press release). These new results are additional evidence that the geological model provides predictability and that the Croinor Gold deposit remains open along strike and at depth.
  • On December 21, 2017, Monarques announced the acquisition of the McKenzie Break and Swanson gold properties from Agnico Eagle Mines Limited (NYSE:AEM; TSX:AEM) (see press release). This transaction allowed the Corporation to consolidate its land position in the Abitibi region by adding two high-quality gold projects to its portfolio, which, along with Wasamac and Croinor Gold, brings the total of Monarques’ advanced projects to four.
  • With the closing of the recent flow-through financings and the exercise of stock options and warrants in the month of December, the Corporation had over $17 million in cash as of December 31, 2017.

Next Steps

  • Monarques’ goal for the coming quarters is to increase the throughput of the Camflo mill with ore from the Beaufor mine and toll milling activities while reducing its production costs. The priorities at the Beaufor mine are to steadily improve productivity and increase grade through more selective mining.
  • The Corporation will also assess the possibility of restarting the Beacon mill in the second half of the year, as it foresees increased demand for toll milling services.
  • Finally, Monarques will continue exploring the Beaufor and Croinor Gold properties and will initiate new programs and/or technical studies to advance the Wasamac, McKenzie Break and Swanson gold projects.

“2018 will be another milestone year for Monarques, as we will pursue our growth strategy with the goals of improving our financial performance, increasing our gold resources and continuously enhancing the value of Monarques for our shareholders,” concluded M. Lacoste.

American Creek $AMK.ca Reports on Treaty Creek Drilling up to 149.1m of 1.78 g/t Gold, Including 59.2m of 2.84 g/t #Gold $SEA $SA $SKE.ca $TUD.ca $PVG

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:47 AM on Tuesday, January 16th, 2018

Hublogolarge2 copy

  • Hole CB-17-26, returned 149.1m grading 1.78 g/t gold (from 97.8 to 246.9m),
  • including a 59.2m interval of 2.84 g/t gold (from 97.8 to 157m depth)

American Creek Resources Ltd (TSX-V: AMK) (the “Corporation”) is pleased to report on an additional 17 holes from JV partner Tudor Gold’s (“Tudor”) 2017 drill program on the Copper Belle zone at the Treaty Creek Project located in the Golden Triangle of northwestern British Columbia.

The summary of results provided in the table below, include the most promising gold intersections reported to date. Hole CB-17-26, returned 149.1m grading 1.78 g/t gold (from 97.8 to 246.9m), including a 59.2m interval of 2.84 g/t gold (from 97.8 to 157m depth). So far, 15 of the 16 holes drilled in the Copper Belle zone contain prominent mineralization, which continues to expand the size of this potential deposit and increases the area of the resource estimate for this zone.

Walter Storm, President and CEO of Tudor Gold, stated: The outstanding interval of gold mineralization in Hole CB-17-26–149m of 1.78 g/t gold–contains the highest average gold grade yet recorded for porphyry style mineralization on the Treaty Creek property. It also ranks among the top tier, in terms of gold grades, of the hundreds of holes drilled during the past fifteen years into multiple porphyry targets on the adjoining KSM and Brucejack-Snowfield properties of Seabridge Gold and Pretium Resources, part of the same, large hydrothermal “Sulphurets” system. The fact that we have achieved these kinds of grades in only our second year after acquiring Treaty Creek speaks both to the potential of the property and also the expertise of our geological staff. This hole will serve to further guide our exploration at Copper Belle in 2018, as well as the more than 3km of ground yet to be explored between the Copper Belle and the Iron Cap Zone of Seabridge Gold to the south, an area defined by extensive magnetotelluric anomalies.”

Darren Blaney, President and CEO of American Creek stated: “Hole CB-17-26 is a game changer for the Treaty Creek Project. At this very preliminary stage of exploration, we have already located a significant zone of higher grade gold within the Copper Belle system. Further, the MT Survey suggests that this deposit is open in all directions, including towards Seabridge’s Iron Cap discovery located several kilometers to the south. What a terrific foundation for the upcoming 2018 drill program to expand upon.”

The Copper Belle 2017 resource delineation drill program comprised 27 holes to depths below 700m (an estimated 13,722m) and step-outs of 50m where topography permitted. Results from additional drill holes of the 2017 drill program at Copper Belle are still pending. Drill holes were targeted oblique to the northwesterly plunge of the main mineralized zone. A block of delineated mineralization will form the basis for a preliminary resource estimate. All drill holes were down hole surveyed at 25m stations using a Reflex Multi-shot device.

Tudor’s 2016 Magnetotelluric Geophysical Survey program (MT Survey) was effectively utilized as a guide for the drill program. The MT Survey suggests that the mineralization continues to the southwest, toward the Iron Cap deposit of Seabridge Gold Inc. The MT Survey also suggests that the mineralized zone continues in all directions. Tudor’s 2017 drill program was located five kilometers north of the Iron Cap deposit and the Company intends to step out to the south in its 2018 program to see if it can determine a relationship between the two areas.

  • Received a No Objection Letter (NOL) from the Therapeutic Products Directorate (TPD),
  • Health Canada to evaluate the safety, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of its cannabis oil PPP005

OTTAWA, ONTARIO–(Jan. 16, 2018) – Tetra Bio-Pharma Inc. (“Tetra” or the “Company“) (TSX VENTURE:TBP)(OTCQB:TBPMF), a global leader in cannabinoid-based drug development and discovery, is pleased to announce that it has received a No Objection Letter (NOL) from the Therapeutic Products Directorate (TPD), Health Canada to evaluate the safety, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of its cannabis oil PPP005.

According to Health Canada data1, the annual Canadian cannabis oil production for medical purposes was 22,766 kg between October 1st 2016 and September 30th 2017, and is growing continuously. In the third quarter of 2017, it grew 24% from Q2 (Apr-Jun) to Q3 (Jul-Sep)1. According to an Eight Capital analysis2, the cannabis oil market is expected to reach 1.5B$ in 2024.

The launch of this trial is the first step in Tetra’s plans to commercialize natural health products with its partners. The corporation will develop cannabis-based supplements for commercialization under the Natural Health Product regulations in Canada and in other countries where regulatory authorities have a recognized pathway for approval and commercialization of such products. The trial will eventually include formulations that will be registered as drugs under Health Canada’s TPD regulatory pathway. “Tetra Bio-Pharma Inc. seeks to become an important player in the retail market post legalization and this clinical trial is part of the sales and marketing strategy required to effectively penetrate the lucrative pharmacy and health stores retail markets,” states Bernard Fortier, CEO of Tetra.

Tetra’s vision is to develop an evidence-based approach, thereby allowing pharmacists to dispense these medicines to patients in need. Despite the growing popularity of cannabis oils, physicians and pharmacists across Canada are still hesitant to support the use of these products because of the lack of data supporting its medical use. Dr. Guy Chamberland, Chief Science Officer, commented: “This trial is part of Tetra’s corporate strategy to develop the science required to commercialize safe and efficacious cannabis oil products post-legalization and to create innovative oral drug formulations for the development of medicines in the management of pain, anxiety and the treatment of cancer.”

In that respect, Tetra’s scientific team is supporting the strategy by initiating a phase 1 clinical trial to characterize the safe use of these cannabis oil medicines in humans. Tetra has worked with Altasciences Clinical Research for the preparation of the Clinical Trial Application (CTA) for the conduct of a double-blind phase 1 study to assess safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of single and multiple daily doses of cannabis (Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol/Cannabidiol) oil capsules administered to healthy human volunteers. Health Canada issued a No Objection Letter for the conduct of the phase I clinical trial on January 12nd, 2018. Altasciences Clinical Research will be initiating the clinical trial activities in the coming weeks. The cannabis oil is manufactured by Tetra’s partner, Aphria Inc.

GEN 2 RESULTS START DEMONSTRATING COMMERCIAL SCALABILITY OF PUREVAP™ QRR

Key milestones to date:

  • Gen 2 PUREVAP™ has operated in semi-continuous feed mode under vacuum, over ever increasing time intervals;
  • Gen 2 PUREVAP™ completed 4 operating feed cycles, over 10-12 hours of operation;
  • Gen 2 PUREVAP™ can reach and, more importantly, maintain, the temperature ranges required for optimum operational parameters;
  • Gen 2 PUREVAP™ is achieving significantly higher production yield 5.7 times more (+469%) and production rate 23 times more (+2,259 %) compared to peak Gen 1 PUREVAP™ performance under similar testing conditions.

Very promising output results have also been attained:

  • The largest individual sample of Si produced to date with the Gen 2 PUREVAP™ is 8.5 grams; 8 times more massive than the maximum produced with Gen 1 PUREVAP™;
  • The total mass of Si produced during one Gen 2 PUREVAP™ test is 11.5 times greater than the average of the top 20 GEN 1 PUREVAP™ tests.

Bernard J. Tourillon, Chairman and CEO of HPQ Silicon stated, “Our methodical approach is producing exciting results as we successfully transition from a static lab scale under vacuum to a semi-continuous operating mode under vacuum, with enormous improvements in production. The market so far has not yet comprehended the scope of what has been accomplished, in the lab, and in our breakthrough agreement with Apollon Solar announced in December. Our objective in 2018 is to continue to build on our technical successes and commence the Pilot Plant phase with our ‘Solar Silicon Team’ of PyroGenesis and Apollon Solar, and to build market awareness. The addition of Apollon Solar to our technical team will allow further refinements to the silicon purification and testing of the numerous process improvements now planned for the Pilot Plant. We have started de-risking our project and our ongoing tests are providing valuable information as we continue to implement the adjustments needed to produce the Solar Grade Silicon Metal that will allow the manufacturing of multi and monocrystalline solar cells for high performance photovoltaic conversion.”

“We are pleased to join HPQ in announcing this significant milestone with respect to the scaling up of the PUREVAP™ process,” said P. Peter Pascali, President and CEO of PyroGenesis. “PyroGenesis has a track record of successfully taking new concepts from lab to commercialization. This is clearly demonstrated by our PAWDS waste destruction technology, which has been adopted by the US Navy, and more recently our proprietary Drosrite system, which has become a commercial phenomenon in its own right. We believe that simultaneously converting Quartz into High Purity Silicon Metal using a plasma arc within a vacuum furnace in a semi-continuous feeding mode is the beginning of another such success.”

KEY MILESTONES MOVING FORWARD

Milestones of the GEN 2 PUREVAP™ program in 2018 are:

  • Tapping Silicon Metal from the Gen 2 PUREVAP™;
  • Increasing production yield of Gen 2 PUREVAP™ over multiple test cycles from low grade feedstock;
  • Increasing production yield of Gen 2 PUREVAP™ over multiple test cycles from high grade feedstock;
  • Testing the Purity of the Si produced and implement additional methods to increase the final purity of the Si produced;
  • Testing electrical parameters of the High Purity Si;
  • Provide data to demonstrate the economics of PUREVAP™ QRR;
  • Adapt the methods and processes developed in GEN 2 PUREVAP™ to the final design and assembly of the Pilot Plant equipment.

  • Wholly owned subsidiary, ZeU Crypto Networks Inc entered into a non-binding letter of intent to acquire all of the Blockchain and Smart Contract Technologies assets of Qingdao Tiande Technologies Inc.
  • Pursuant to the terms of the LOI, the proposed consideration for the Transaction is an aggregate amount of CND$150 million payable through the issuance of 150,000,000 common shares and 75,000,000 Shares purchase warrants in the capital of ZeU

Montreal, January 14, 2018 St-Georges Eco-Mining Corp. (CSE: SX) (OTC: SXOOF) (FSE: 85G1) announces that its wholly owned subsidiary, ZeU Crypto Networks Inc. (“ZeU”), a private blockchain technology company, has entered into a non-binding letter of intent (“LOI”) to acquire all of the Blockchain and Smart Contract Technologies assets (the “Transaction”) of Qingdao Tiande Technologies Inc. (“Tiande”), a Chinese private company.

Pursuant to the terms of the LOI, the proposed consideration for the Transaction is an aggregate amount of CND$150 million payable through the issuance of 150,000,000 common shares (“Shares”) and 75,000,000 Shares purchase warrants (“Warrants”) in the capital of ZeU. Each Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one (1) Share at a price of CND$1.00 for a period of three (3) years following the date ZeU completes a transaction pursuant to which its common shares will either be listed on a recognized stock exchange in North America, or will be exchanged for common shares of a reporting issuer listed on a recognized stock exchange in North America.

On January 4, 2018 St-Georges (the “Company”) announced it was granted an exclusive global license to Tiande’s Blockchain and Smart Contract technology for mineral commodity production, trading and tracking. The Company assigned the License to ZeU in consideration of 20,000,000 common shares of ZeU.

INTERVIEW – Namaste $N.ca $NXTTF Global Bevarage Supply Agreement With Phivida $VIDA.ca Sets It On The Path Towards Becoming “Namazon”

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 8:08 PM on Thursday, January 11th, 2018

Today’s press release from Namaste is one of the most important in recent months – but you wouldn’t know it from the press release headline announcing a “supply agreement”.
This is no ordinary supply agreement … this is a GLOBAL supply agreement for CBD infused beverages, with a company whose management can be summarized as follows:

“Phivida’s management team has a strong background from the beverage industry to branding, including former senior executives from Redbull, Proctor and Gamble and McKesson’s”

It gets better … because this is what they said about our Namaste:

“John – David Belfontaine, President and CEO of Phivida reports: “As Phivida continues to expand is CBD product offerings into a $1 Trillion global health and wellness markets, it is critical that we secure the strongest distribution partners. Ecommerce and digital marketing is a core horizontal within our greater strategic business plan, and Namaste is an ideal partner to expand our online presence into emerging markets around the world. We look forward to launching our global digital marketing and distribution platform with Namaste’s support as a key strategic partner.”

When a management team formerly from Redbull, P&G and McKesson’s think this highly of your company, you can only come to one conclusion..

Namazon
