  • 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).

Tetra Bio-Pharma Files Patent for the Treatment of Cancer and Ocular Disease $TBP.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 4:17 PM on Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

Tbp large

  • Submitted a provisional patent application with the U.S. patent and trademark office for a pharmaceutical drug formulation to treat various forms of cancer and ocular disease
  • Global market for cancer drugs has hit US$100 billion in annual sales
  • Could reach US$147 billion by 2018, according to a new report by IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics

OTTAWA, ONTARIO–(May 17, 2017) - Tetra Bio-Pharma Inc. (“Tetra” or the “Company“) (CSE:TBP)(CSE:TBP.CN)(CNSX:TBP)(OTCQB:GRPOF), today announced that Tetra has submitted a provisional patent application with the U.S. patent and trademark office for a pharmaceutical drug formulation to treat various forms of cancer and ocular disease.

The global market for cancer drugs has hit US$100 billion in annual sales, and could reach US$147 billion by 2018, according to a new report by the IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics. According to Transparency Market Research, the global ophthalmic drug market is expected to reach US$21.6 billion by 2018 due to high incidence of eye-related disorders amongst geriatrics. The provisional patent aims to protect new pharmaceutical combinations of cannabinoids and terpenoids to inhibit a specific signaling pathway, known as Hedgehog (Hh), and their use to combat human diseases.

“Filing of this provisional patent marks the launch of an innovative and exciting project that could not only impact patients suffering from a variety of human diseases, but also further Tetra’s interests in developing and commercializing novel cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical drugs,” said Dr. Guy Chamberland, Chief Scientific Officer of Tetra. “The rationale forming the basis for this project is well founded and our research team has extensive scientific experience in the Hh field. We look forward to quickly advancing the project through key academic collaborations, with the ultimate goal of developing multiple pharmaceutical treatments.”

Background Information:

Hh signaling is a critical developmental molecular signaling pathway and inappropriate over activation of Hh is causal in several types of human tumors, including medulloblastoma, basal cell carcinoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, and multiple forms of leukemia, as well as liver, stomach, small cell lung, prostate, and breast cancers. Hh signaling also regulates the formation and remodeling of blood vessels, and aberrant blood vessel growth is implicated in several human diseases. The eye is particularly vulnerable to dysfunctional angiogenesis and neovascularization, such as in the case of diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, neovascular glaucoma, retinal vein occlusion and retinopathy of prematurity, where inappropriate ocular blood vessel growth often leads to irreversible blindness if left untreated.

Currently, there are few clinically approved treatments for Hh-pathway-dependent cancers and drug resistance remains a major hurdle. As well, current treatment approaches to neovascular and angiogenic ocular disease are insufficiently effective and have significant adverse effects. Thus, there is a large need to develop novel therapies to treat human cancers and ocular disease related to blood vessel growth. Recently, cannabinoids have emerged as novel and potent inhibitors of the Hh signaling pathway and terpenoids have been shown to modulate the effects of cannabinoids through an undefined mechanism. Tetra looks to capitalize on these recent findings by filing a provisional patent for the use of cannabinoids in combination with terpenoids to treat Hh related cancer growth and aberrant blood vessel growth in the eye. Securing a provisional patent and achieving the freedom to operate is an important first step in the realization of this project.

HPQ Identifies Major Fault Line Beneath The Old Gold Placer Mine on Beauce Gold Property $HPQ.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 12:56 PM on Thursday, May 11th, 2017

Hpq large

  • Identified a major fault beneath the former placer gold mining operation of the 1960s Beauce Placer Company
  • Patrick Levasseur, President and COO of HPQ Silicon stated, “This is an important discovery that narrows our search to find the hard rock source of the St-Simon-Les-Mines gold placers.” 
  • Also stated “We’re also very excited by the potential for discovery of another massive sulphide deposit within the Bellechasse Gold Belt. This is the same gold belt that hosts Golden Hope Mines Bellechasse – Timmins gold deposit as well as the Champagne massive sulphide deposit.

MONTREAL, QUEBEC–(May 11, 2017) –  HPQ Silicon Resources Inc (“HPQ”) (TSX VENTURE:HPQ)(FRANKFURT:UGE)(OTC PINK:URAGF) is pleased to announce that the geophysical study along St-Gustave road on the company’s Beauce Gold property located in St-Simon-Les-Mines announced last year (HPQ Press release March 22, 2016) was completed and has identified a major fault beneath the former placer gold mining operation of the 1960s Beauce Placer Company.

Patrick Levasseur, President and COO of HPQ Silicon stated, “This is an important discovery that narrows our search to find the hard rock source of the St-Simon-Les-Mines gold placers.” Mr. Levasseur also stated “We’re also very excited by the potential for discovery of another massive sulphide deposit within the Bellechasse Gold Belt. This is the same gold belt that hosts Golden Hope Mines Bellechasse – Timmins gold deposit as well as the Champagne massive sulphide deposit.

SIGNIFICANT GOVERNMENT AND RESEARCH ENTITIES CONDUCTED GEOPHYSICAL STUDY

As part of a research grant from the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Nature et technologies (FRQNT) in partnership with the Quebec Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources and HPQ Silicon Resources, the INRS-Center Eau Terre et Environnement of Québec conducted a multidisciplinary geophysical study to document the deep geological context of the Magog Group and, more specifically, the Beauceville Formation (Bellechasse gold belt) under the St-Simon-les-Mines gold placer.

PRESENCE OF A MAJOR FAULT LINE IN THIS SECTOR IS UNPRECEDENTED

The work, carried out under the supervision of Professor Marc Richer-LaFlèche, Ph.D., geo, consists of audio-magnetotelluric, gravimetric, magnetometric and electromagnetic surveys. The latter were carried out along a 5.6 km section along the St-Gustave road. The results of the study suggest the presence of a large fault (Figure 1) rising on the edge of the former placer gold mining operation of the 1960s Beauce Placer Company. Gravity data also shows a contrast between the southern and northern blocks of the fault. This new information is relevant to explain the possible source of gold contained in the St-Simon-les-Mines site and along the Gilbert River. The presence of a major fault in this sector was previously not identified, as government maps indicate simple folded structures in the area. In addition, the projection of the fault at the surface corresponds to a high electrical chargeability domain (Richer-LaFlèche, 2014) suggesting the presence of disseminated sulphides in the volcaniclastic rocks of the Beauceville Formation. This area borders the northern limit of the St-Simon-les-Mines gold placer.

POTENTIAL FOR POLYMETALLIC MASSIVE SULPHIDE MINERALISATION

In addition to specifying the structural context of the St-Simon-les-Mines gold sector, the geophysical work of 2016 was extended north to document the deep geology of the northern part of the Beauceville Formation. This area is characterized by a greater proportion of volcanoclastic and volcanic rocks and a geological context similar to that of the Champagne deposit in the St-Magloire area (Bellechasse gold belt). The audio-magnetotelluric data of the St-Gustave road section suggest the presence of a large conductor (conductor IV) with an estimated thickness of about 50 m and vertical extension in the order of 400 m (Fig. 1). This structure could correspond to a massive polymetallic sulphides mineralization. Additional work is planned to specify the geometry of this conductor.

IMPLICATIONS FOR MINERAL EXPLORATION IN THE BELLECHASSE GOLD BELT

The use of multiple geophysical methods including deep penetration AMT makes it possible to improve the geological understanding of the St-Simon-les-Mines sector by highlighting the presence of a fault in the vicinity of the gold placer. The rocks in the area affected by the presumed structure show local high electrical chargeability values suggesting the presence of disseminated sulphides in the volcanoclastic rocks of the Beauceville Formation. Additional geophysical and geological work will be carried out to clarify the geometry of the fault and to document the presence of bedrock mineralization under the placer and in the northern part of the Beauce Gold property.

Marc Richer-LaFlèche PhD, P. Geo, is a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 and has reviewed and approved the technical contents of this press release.

HPQ INCREASES BEAUCE GOLD PROPERTY FOOTPRINT OVER NEWLY DISCOVERED ZONES

In addition to the original 5 Uragold claims and the 32 claims acquired from Fancamp, the Company has acquired through map staking an additional 108 claims for a total of 145 claims covering a total area of 4,472 hectares over the newly discovered zones.

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).
