  • Announced that it conducted a Type B meeting with the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its dronabinol AdVersa™Â mucoadhesive product, PPP002
  • The purpose of the meeting was to obtain confirmation of the eligibility of PPP002 for the 505(b)(2) NDA and the requirements for marketing approval

Shorter regulatory pathway confirmed by FDA and potential for Schedule 3 classification

ORLEANS, Ontario, Sept. 27, 2018 — Tetra Bio-Pharma Inc., a leader in cannabinoid-based drug discovery and development (TSX VENTURE: TBP) (OTCQB: TBPMF), today announced that it conducted a Type B meeting with the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its dronabinol AdVersa™Â mucoadhesive product, PPP002. The purpose of the meeting was to obtain confirmation of the eligibility of PPP002 for the 505(b)(2) NDA and the requirements for marketing approval.

The FDA confirmed the eligibility of the 505(b)(2) regulatory pathway for the product PPP002 and that the efficacy and systemic safety would be supported by the corporation’s proposed comparative bioavailability study and if successful Tetra could apply for FDA approval in Q1 2019, for Chemotherapy Induced Nausea and Vomiting as well as Anorexia associated with Weight Loss in Patients with AIDS. The FDA also provided feedback on the local safety requirements and the evaluation of the abuse potential of PPP002 for obtaining a Schedule III controlled substance classification.

“We are very pleased with the outcome of yesterday’s meeting with the U.S. FDA,” said Guy Chamberland, M.Sc., Ph.D., Interim Chief Executive Officer and CSO of Tetra Bio-Pharma. “The FDA confirmed the shorter regulatory path to the market that Tetra had promised shareholders. In addition, the FDA also provided clear guidance on the safety and drug abuse data requirements for the new drug application. With this confirmation and guidance, Tetra can now complete the execution of the clinical program for PPP002 and, if successful, anticipates submitting a New Drug Application to commercialize PPP002 in Q1 2019.”

According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer1, the global chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) market will reach a valuation of US$1.88 bn by 2020, an increase from its 2013 valuation of US$1.28 bn. Based on the expected improved safety profile of delayed release dronabinol, Tetra expects that AdVersa™ could gain significant market share within three (3) years of its launch in the USA.

Reducing Opioid Use
The opioid crisis is serious and growing throughout North America. Tetra’s rich cannabinoid-derived product pipeline has the potential to play a significant role in opioid sparing, thus addressing a societal issue of critical proportion. Tetra expects to undertake a Phase II clinical trial using PPP002 up against an opioid to treat chronic pain.

$GRAT.ca Gratomic Announces Successful Startup of Aukam Proccesing Plant

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 9:02 AM on Monday, May 7th, 2018

 

  • Aukam processing plant has been commissioned successfully
  • An initial shipment of graphite concentrate has been delivered
  • 4.5 tonnes of graphite concentrate grading between 88%-95% Carbon as Graphite delivered
  • Perpetuus Carbon Technologies will manufacture graphenes to be used in the tire industry.

TORONTO, May 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Gratomic Inc. (“Gratomic” or the “Company”) (GRAT.V) (CB81.F) a vertically integrated graphite to graphenes, advanced materials development company is pleased to announce that its Aukam processing plant has been commissioned successfully and an initial shipment of graphite concentrate has been made.

The Aukam processing plant was constructed between December 2017 and March 2018, with initial throughput and optimization reached during March and April 2018. To date, the plant has generated 4.5 tonnes of graphite concentrate grading between 88%-95% Carbon as Graphite (“Cg”) of which 2.25 tonnes of concentrate has been shipped to Perpetuus Carbon Technologies (“Perpetuus”) for the manufacture of graphenes to be used in the automobile bicycle tire industry. Gratomic and Perpetuus are currently in collaboration to build on Perpetuus’ capability to initially provide 500 tonnes of surfaced modified graphenes per annum to support the volumes required by the tire manufacturing industry (see March, 4, 2018 news release). The first cycle tire order for the graphenes to a globally recognised brand is planned for delivery at the end of the second quarter of 2018. Additional applications that have now been generated in a preproduction format include radiant heating membranes and super hydrophobic coatings with an addressable market that includes: marine, oil & gas, power generation, industrial (repair & maintenance), infrastructure (new build) and automotive & transportation among others.

Gratomic’s CO-CEO Arno Brand stated, “The successful start-up of our Aukam processing plant is a major milestone for the Company, one that allows us to begin feeding concentrate to Perpetuus for the manufacturing of graphenes for use as a material enhancing filler within tire elastomers.”

The Aukam processing plant uses a simple crushing, grinding and flotation system with a current capacity of 600 tonnes per annum. Construction is already underway for the installation of a larger mill with a 10,000 tonne per annum capacity.

Graphite Feed for the Aukam processing plant is obtained from screening and sorting of stockpiles existing from historical and recent mining. An average feed grade of 56.29% Cg with a range of 41.55% Cg to 63.87% Cg was determined from ten, 2kg to 30kg, grab samples from across the stockpiled lumps (see June 3, 2016 and July 12, 2016 news releases). Note that assays of grab samples should not be taken as representative of the mineralization on the Aukam property as a whole.

$GRAT.ca Gratomic and Perpetuus Carbon Technologies Limited Enter Into an Agreement for the Exclusive Development and Marketing of Material Enhancing Graphenes

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 8:23 AM on Monday, April 23rd, 2018

 

  • Letter of collaboration with Perpetuus Carbon Technologies Limited
  • GRAT and Perpetuus to develop and market material enhancing graphite derived graphenes and graphene hybrids for tire elastomers
  • GRAT will purchase, and retain ownership, of three specialized process tooling chambers at an aggregate cost of 300,000 British Pounds

 

Gratomic Inc., is pleased to announce that the Company has signed a letter of collaboration (“Agreement”) with Perpetuus Carbon Technologies Limited (“Perpetuus”) pursuant to which GRAT and Perpetuus will develop and market material enhancing graphite derived graphenes and graphene hybrids for tire elastomers, whilst also exploring options to exploit polymer composites, energy capture and storage applications markets (“Project”).

The Agreement contemplates the first Phase of the Project (“Phase 1”), with the other phases to be described in a joint venture agreement to be entered into between GRAT and Perpetuus.

Pursuant to the Agreement, and as part of Phase 1, GRAT will purchase, and retain ownership, of three specialised process tooling chambers at an aggregate cost of 300,000 British Pounds. These specialized tooling chambers will be housed in Perpetuus’ existing facility in the United Kingdom. In addition to housing the specialized tooling chambers Perpetuus will contribute its Patented Project specific intellectual property, designed perfected and engineered by Perpetuus. In addition Perpetuus will also manage and maintain the specialized tooling chambers.

The Agreement contemplates the supply of Graphite from the Aukam Graphite mine in Namibia.

GRAT and Perpetuus will share equally all proceeds of sales after deductions of operating costs and Product purchasing costs.

Gratomic’s Chairman and CO-CEO Sheldon Inwentash stated:

“I am extremely pleased to announce that the Gratomic Perpetuus agreement completes the first stage of the Gratomic strategic plan to establish the first vertically integrated Graphite to Graphene to mass market product.”

Ian Walters Director – Perpetuus Carbon Technologies Limited stated:

“On road trials in the UK it has been duly established that the extra ordinary properties of the Gratomic Aukam Graphite derived graphenes provide enhancing properties for tire elastomer tread formulations. These conclusions are scientifically evidenced and duly recorded by the fact that the graphene enhanced tire tread significantly out performs a comparative size but more expensive premier branded Tire. We can only conclude that the Gratomic Tire due to be launched later this year is well placed to revolutionise the commercial Tire market and establish the first Graphite mine to commercial exploitation “vertical” for graphenes derived from mined graphite.”

Gratomic Inc $GRAT.ca Gratomic Announces 6.88% Cg Over 62 Metres at 100% Owned Buckingham Project #Graphite

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 8:55 AM on Tuesday, April 3rd, 2018

Gratomic large new

  •  %100 owned Buckingham graphite project in Quebec
  •  16.64% Cg  over 18 metres in drill hole CK18-07
  • 4.94% Cg was intersected over 66 metres in Hole CK18-09

TORONTO, April 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Gratomic Inc. (“Gratomic” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:GRAT) (FRANKFURT:CB81) a vertically integrated graphite to graphenes, advanced materials development company is pleased to provide results from the diamond drilling program at its 100% owned Buckingham graphite project in Quebec. Results have now been received from all six holes, with assays up to 16.64% Cg (carbon as graphite) over 18 metres in drill hole CK18-07.

Gratomic’s Co-CEO Arno Brand stated, “The Buckingham results are inspiring and further validate that this asset has significant exploration merit.”

Highlights of the results received to date include a grade of 6.88% Cg over 62 metres in hole CK18-07, that included 12.75% Cg over 29 metres and included a higher grade 16.64% Cg interval over 18 metres, starting at a depth of 57 metres. A grade of 4.94% Cg was intersected over 66 metres in Hole CK18-09 from six metres, that included higher grade near surface intervals of 14.52% Cg over four metres and 13.52% Cg over three metres. A summary of the results is given in the table below.

 

The drilling follows up on positive results of previous work including airborne electromagnetics, trenching and a first stage drill program undertaken during 2016 and 2017. Hole CK-18-06 was drilled to the northwest to test the thickest portion of the 1.54 kilometre long northeast-southwest trending electromagnetic (EM) conductor and intersected low grade graphite mineralization associated with carbonate horizons in quartzo-feldspatic gneiss. Hole CK 18-07 was drilled to the southeast through the conductor between trenches 5 and 6 from the 2017 program. The hole intersected three graphite zones between 30 and 146 metres, with the highest grades associated with marble zones within gneiss. Hole CK18-08 was collared approximately 50m north of hole CK18-06 and drilled to the southeast. It intersected two graphite zones from 46 to 63 metres and from 95 to 108 metres with higher grades again associated with marble horizons. Hole CK18-09 was drilled to the northwest across a narrowing of the EM anomaly and intersected three graphite zones between 6 metres and 157 metres. Graphite mineralization in the near surface zone is associated with intervals of marble within the gneiss. Holes CK18-10 and CK18-11 were drilled across conductors in the vicinity of trench 2 and trench 10, respectively. Both holes showed relatively narrow intervals of graphite associated with marble.

All samples were placed in a plastic sample bag along with a sample tag. Bags were sealed with a single use tie. Samples were securely stored prior to shipping to SGS in Lakefield Ontario. Samples were crushed, milled and roasted and treated by HCl leach prior to being assayed by the combustion infrared technique (LECO). The Company routinely submits standards, duplicates and blanks with sample batches to monitor the quality of the assays.

Widths are not necessarily true widths as there is currently insufficient information to calculate true widths.

The drilling and trenching follows up on positive results of airborne electromagnetics and trenching undertaking during 2016. Hole CK-17-01 was drilled below an isolated EM conductor and intersected graphite mineralization primarily hosted in marble with minor quartzo-feldspatic gneiss. Hole CK 17-02 was drilled into the main 1.54 kilometre long northeast-southwest trending EM conductor the northeast portion of which coincides with graphite mineralization in the Case Zone that yielded assays of 1.6% Cg to 28.7% Cg in 35 grab samples. The best intersections were associated with marble and calc-silicate rich rock. Hole CK-17-03 was drilled approximately 100m to the south east of CK17-02 where the EM anomaly narrows.

Results from trench two are encouraging, since it extends the known graphite mineralization approximately 230 metres to the southeast and confirms the coincidence of graphite mineralization with the EM conductor.

“We are very pleased with these results from our 100% owned Buckingham Project that confirm the graphite is associated with the EM conductor over the length tested to date,” said Roger Moss, Chief Executive Officer of CKR Carbon. “Results from Trench 17 TR-02 are particularly significant as it represents a 230 metre step southeast along the EM conductor.”

All samples were placed in a plastic sample bag along with a sample tag. Bags were sealed with a single use tie. Samples were securely stored prior to shipping to SGS in Lakefield Ontario. Samples were crushed, milled and roasted and treated by HCl leach prior to being assayed by the combustion infrared technique (LECO). The company routinely submits standards, duplicates and blanks with sample batches to monitor the quality of the assays.

About the Buckingham Project

The 100%-owned Buckingham Graphite Property is located 7 kilometres northwest of the town of Buckingham, Quebec, Canada and consists of eight claim blocks totaling 480 hectares. Well-maintained bush roads provide easy access to the property. The property lies within the Central Metasedimentary Belt of the Grenville Geologic Province 82 km south of Imerys Graphite & Carbon’s operating Lac des Iles graphite mine. Graphite occurs disseminated in marble and paragneiss and within veins hosted in pegmatite, diopside skarn, marble and gneiss.

Two graphitic zones, the Uncle Zone and the Case Zone have been discovered to date, with both zones showing high grade occurrences of disseminated flake and vein type graphite and yielding assay values as high as 81.1% Cg. Initial crushing and flotation of two samples from the Uncle zone has achieved purity of up to 99.4% Cg from a single flotation test without process optimization (see news release dated February 17, 2015).

  • Reports up to 43.01% Carbon as Graphite from Surface Sampling
  • Exclusive Prospecting License (EPL) 3895 renewed for a period of two years until April 3, 2019

Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – September 7, 2017) – CKR Carbon Corporation. (TSXV: CKR) (FSE: CB81) (“CKR” or the “Company”) a vertically integrated graphite to graphenes, advanced materials development company is pleased to announce that the Namibian Minister of Mines and Energy has approved the renewal of Exclusive Prospecting License (EPL) 3895 for a period of two years until April 3, 2019.

The renewed license covers an area of 27,870 hectares (278.7 square kilometres) over the historical Aukam vein graphite mine in southern Namibia. Recent work by the Company over the past two years has led to a better understanding of the quality and distribution of the graphite mineralization at Aukam. In particular exploration has demonstrated significant potential for expansion of the mineralization outside the old workings.

Recent surface sampling of graphite occurrences has resulted in assays of 1.96% Cg (carbon as graphite) to 43.01% Cg from 22 samples of disseminated graphite, vein graphite and mineralized zone (see Table below). The graphite occurrences were taken from over approximately 200m within a larger east-west zone of 500 metres of disseminated graphite. This zone broadly corresponds to a 700 metre long electromagnetic anomaly delineated earlier this year (see news release dated January 18, 2017). Sampling is ongoing to fully delineate the potential of the graphite mineralization at Aukam.

“We are pleased to receive the approval of the Minister for the renewal of the EPL and thank the Minister and his staff at the Ministry of Mines and Energy for the vote of confidence that the approval represents,” said Roger Moss, Chief Executive Officer of CKR Carbon. “We intend to aggressively move the Aukam project ahead for the benefit of our shareholders, local stakeholders and the people of Namibia.”
