  • Announces the acquisition of 1 mining claim (2 mineral claim units) situated in the Porcupine mining division, district of Cochrane, in the Ogden Township, Ontario
  • Claim is located in Ogden Township to the north of the Ogden Property. Highway 101 West is north of the property and provided excellent access to the city of Timmins

ROUYN-NORANDA, QUEBEC–(May 27, 2016) - Explor Resources Inc. (“Explor” or “the Corporation”) (TSX VENTURE:EXS)(OTCQX:EXSFF)(FRANKFURT:E1H1)(BERLIN:E1H1) is pleased to announce the acquisition of 1 mining claim (2 mineral claim units) situated in the Porcupine mining division, district of Cochrane, in the Ogden Township, Ontario. This claim is located in Ogden Township to the north of the Ogden Property. Highway 101 West is north of the property and provided excellent access to the city of Timmins.

Explor Resources Inc. will pay CDN $6,000 and issue 60,000 common shares to acquire a 100% interest in the additional Ogden claim. The optionors have retained a 2% NSR in the property. This acquisition is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

With this acquisition, the Ogden property now consists of 9 mining claims (72 mineral claim units) covering 1,152 hectares situated in the Porcupine mining division, district of Cochrane, in the Ogden Township, Ontario. The Ogden property has been previously explored by Hollinger Mines, Tex-Sol Exploration, Inmet Mining Corporation, Amax Mineral Exploration, Noranda Exploration and Knick Exploration. The majority of the holes drilled by previous operators were less than 100 meters in length. Historically on the Ogden Property, the only hole that hit significant mineralization was a diamond drill hole by Tex-Sol Exploration in 1965 which returned 6.0 g/t Au over 9.1 m at a shallow depth. On the TPW Gold Property significant mineralization was intersected below 300 meters of vertical depth requiring drill holes of 500 to 600 m in length. Explor has completed a drill program on the Ogden Property and results are pending.

The most significant deposits in Timmins are spatially associated with porphyry units that are in proximity to the Porcupine Destor Fault. The deposits appear to be also associated with splay faults that trend off and to the North of the Porcupine Destor fault inside an interpreted splay fault corridor.

The Ogden Property is contiguous on the east side of the Timmins Porcupine West Property. The Timmins Porcupine West Project has as a Target Model “The Hollinger-McIntyre-Coniaurum System.” The Hollinger-McIntyre-Coniaurum (HMC) System has produced a total of over 30 million oz of gold is spatially associated with the Pearl Lake Porphyry. The high-grade gold bearing quartz veins which hosted the bulk of the gold at the HMC occurred in the adjacent mafic volcanics, located outboard from the porphyry itself.

Bff_hub-2_copy

  • Announced that it has completed an orientation survey at Teels Marsh, Esmeralda County Nevada
  • Lithium values ranged from 8.9 to 104.5 ppm.
  • The two best results (93.2 and 104.5) were obtained downstream of thermal springs on the western part of the property.
  • Collected twenty-seven shallow auger sediment samples
  • Program was primarily a test of the sampling method to see if it could be used to collect samples beneath low sand dunes and alluvial gravel.

May 26, 2016 / Vancouver, British Columbia- Nevada Energy Metals Inc. “the Company” (TSX-V: BFF; OTCQB: SSMLF) (Frankfurt: A2AFBV) is pleased to announce that it has completed an orientation survey at Teels Marsh, Esmeralda County Nevada. Nevada Energy Metals collected twenty-seven shallow auger sediment samples from the Teels Marsh West Project area April 18 – 20, 2016. The sampling program was primarily a test of the sampling method to see if it could be used to collect samples beneath low sand dunes and alluvial gravel. This goal was met in most locations.

Samples were collected using a powered auger to reach a maximum depth of 2.9 meters (9.5 ft.) below the surface. The holes were initially drilled with an electric auger and bottom hole samples were collected with a hand tulip style sampler. Sampling was conducted by Pediment Gold LLC of Sparks, Nevada. Samples were collected on site and transported to the ALS Global preparation facility in Elko, Nevada by the Nevada Energy Metals project geologist. Samples were analyzed by ALS using their MEMS41 multi-element package. QA/QC standards and blanks were inserted into the sample stream to assure accuracy.

Lithium values ranged from 8.9 to 104.5 ppm. The two best results (93.2 and 104.5) were obtained downstream of thermal springs on the western part of the property. A general increase in values was noted at the playa margin with lower values in the alluvial fan on the southwestern part of the property. Many of the sites on the alluvial fan did not penetrate to the maximum depth due to boulders. Sampling was supervised by Alan J. Morris CPG who serves as the project geologist and Qualified Person on the Teels Marsh West Project.

Purevap(TM) Dynamic Testing Restarted and First 3 Samples Sent For Independent Analysis $UBR.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 7:45 AM on Wednesday, May 25th, 2016

Uragold_new

  • PyroGenesis Canada Inc. has advised Uragold that the PUREVAP Quartz Vaporization Reactor  validation program, now in its beneficiation stage, has restarted
  • First batch of three samples have been produced since the restart
  • Bernard Tourillon, Chairman and CEO of Uragold stated, “The quick restart of the testing program demonstrates PyroGenesis ability and commitment to the advancement of our project. We are very satisfied with the milestones reached to date and we wait with anticipation for the next key milestone results.”

MONTREAL, QUEBEC–(May 25, 2016) - Uragold (TSX VENTURE:UBR)(FRANKFURT:UGE)(OTC PINK:URAGD) would like to inform its shareholders that PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (“PyroGenesis”) has advised Uragold that the PUREVAP Quartz Vaporization Reactor (QVR) validation program, now in its beneficiation stage, has restarted and that a first batch of three (3) samples have been produced since the restart.

Bernard Tourillon, Chairman and CEO of Uragold stated, “The quick restart of the testing program demonstrates PyroGenesis ability and commitment to the advancement of our project. We are very satisfied with the milestones reached to date and we wait with anticipation for the next key milestone results.”

ANTICIPATED TIMELINE FOR TESTING AND RESULTS

Having already validated that the PUREVAPQVR process can transform Uragold Quartz into Silicon Metal (Si), (See Uragold Press Release of April 19, 2016), the new material produced by the reactor was delivered to the INRS Laboratory in Quebec City for LA-ICP-MS (Laser Ablation Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry) analysis.

Generally speaking, Uragold anticipates receiving results within two weeks but reminds investors the exact timeline is beyond its control. The goal of these tests is the establishment of a baseline purity of the material produced by the reactor under three (3) different operational conditions and quantifying beneficiation improvements attained to date.

Theoretical modeling of the process indicates that transforming Uragold Raw Quartz into Solar Grade Purity Silicon metals is feasible. Determining the baseline purity of the Si produced by the PUREVAP QVR and quantifying beneficiation success are crucial steps in the validation and the advancement of the program.

Tourillon added, “Reaching our goal of transforming Uragold Quartz into Solar Grade Purity Silicon seems within reach but it will probably require identifying and implementing process improvements and completing additional tests. Having said that, we are very close to reaching the point where the following recent statement made by PyroGenesis CEO, P. Peter Pascali, takes on its importance as we are about to have the information necessary to decide about advancing the project to the pilot stage – ‘We look forward to the final results of our testing program and advancing to the pilot stage with Uragold’.”

UPCOMING AGM – JUNE 22, 2016

Uragold would like to remind shareholders that our AGM will be on June 22, 2016 at 10:00 AM. Shareholders of record as of May 16, 2016 should soon receive their Information circular and proxy documentation. The meeting will be held at the offices of McCarthy Tétrault, 25th floor, 1000 Rue de la Gauchetière W, Montreal, Quebec, in the MTL/QC conference room. We invite all of our shareholders to attend, meet management, vote on agenda items and discuss the company’s milestones, as well as, future plans…

ADDITIONAL FUND RAISING

The Corporation is embarking on an accelerated development strategy where, in combination with it presents and anticipated PUREVAP™ QVR development programs; Uragold will soon be starting a field exploration campaign program on our Roncevaux Quartz Property in order to delineate a resource. This is the first step required for the preparation of a Preliminary Economic Assessment (“PEA”) of Roncevaux as the feed material for the PyroGenesis’ PUREVAP™ QVR process. In order to meet these goals and cover the legal and regulatory cost associated with the gold spin out, the Corporation has chosen to complete the following financing:

Private Placement

Uragold announces that it’s proceeding with a two new non-brokered private placements. The first being for a maximum of 2,700,000 hard cash units (“HC Unit”) at $0.14 per Unit for a gross proceeds of $378,000 and the second being for a maximum of 2,700,000 Flow Through Shares (“FT Shares”) at $0.14 per FT Shares for a gross proceeds of $378,000. Both placements combined represent a total gross amount of $756,000. Insider participation in this placement could accounts up to 5% of the total amount subscribed. The net proceeds from the Private Placement will be used for general corporate expenditures, PUREVAP™ QVR related expenses and exploration activities.

In case of over-subscription of the placement and other certain conditions, Uragold reserve the right to increase the size of the Hard Cash private placement by up to an additional 3,500,000 HC Unit at $0.14 per Unit for an additional gross proceeds of $490,000 and up to an additional 1,500,000 FT Shares at $0.14 per FT Shares for an additional gross proceeds of $210,000.

Each Hard cash Unit will be comprised of one (1) common share and one (1) common share purchase warrant (“Warrant”) of the Company. Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the capital stock of the Company at an exercise price of $ 0.25 during a period of 24 months from the date of closing of the placement. Each share issued pursuant to the placement will have a mandatory four (4) month holding period from the date of closing of the placement. The placement is subject to standard regulatory approvals. No purchase warrants will be available for the Flow Through Shares placement.

In Connection with the above placement, the Company may end up paying a cash finder’s fee of $42,000 and issued of 240,000 common shares and 60,000 options to EMD Financial Inc. of Montreal Quebec. Each option will give the right to purchase one (1) common share at 14 cents for 24 months. In case of over-subscription, these amounts may increase.

SHARES FOR SERVICES PROGRAM

Further to our press release of April 15 2016, a debt of $ 28,250 was extinguished through the issuance of 370,780 common shares of the Corporation.

About Uragold

Uragold Bay Resources is a TSX-V listed junior exploration company planning to become a vertically integrated and diversified High Value Specialty Materials Company. Uragold has announced plans to spin out its Beauce Gold Project – the largest placer gold deposit in eastern North America. Our Business model is focused on developing unique projects that can generate high yield returns and significant free cash flow within a short time line.

High Value Specialty Materials

In September 2015, PyroGenesis announced that it had filed for a provisional patent for the PUREVAP™ Quartz Vaporization Reactor (QVR) process, which it noted was able to produce silicon, at a lower cost, while generating less CO2 emissions than current processes.

On April 19, 2016, PyroGenesis announced that early test results of the PUREVAP™ QVR process have demonstrated that it can transform high purity quartz into silicon metal. The PUREVAP™ QVR validation program his now in its second stage whereby the operational parameters of the reactor are adjusted in order to achieve the transformation of Uragold Quartz into Solar Grade Purity Si.

Uragold, with its worldwide exclusive usage of PyroGenesis’ PUREVAP™ QVR, is endeavouring to become a vertically integrated Silicon Metal (98.5% Si), High Purity Silicon Metal (99.99% Si), Solar Grade Silicon Metal (6N Purity / 99.9999% Si) and/or Higher (9N Purity / 99.9999999% Si) producer.

The PUREVAP™ QVR process’s big advantage is its one step direct transformation of Quartz into High Purity Silicon Metal Solar Grade Silicon Metal and/or Higher Purity product, thereby potentially allowing Uragold to manufacture high value material for the same operating cost presently being paid by traditional producers to make Metallurgical Grade Si (98.5% Si) using the traditional arc furnace approach.

The Science Behind PyroGenesis PUREVAP™ QVR Process Is Solid:

  • Plasma arc based process can and has transformed High Purity Quartz into Mg Si.
  • Plasma arc based process can and is being used to purify Mg Si into higher value materials such as Sg Si.
  • Finally, refining Mg Si using an electron-beam furnace in a high vacuum-processing environment has proven the concept of the elimination of elements whose vapor pressures are higher than that of silicon.

What is unique and ground breaking is the combination of these three proven processes into one step.

A Green And Clean Company

Uragold, with its worldwide exclusive usage of PyroGenesis’ PUREVAP™ QVR will also be implementing a process to make Sg Si, which is estimated to generate 14.1 kg CO2 eq/Kg SG Si, versus the 54.0 kg CO2 eq/Kg SG Si of emissions generated by the Siemens process (90% of the present production process). This represents 75% fewer greenhouse gas emissions, which is justified by elimination of the emissions emanating from the use of chemicals, as well as, energy consumption from the additional purification step.

High Purity Quartz Properties

Uragold is also the largest holder of High Purity Quartz properties in Quebec, with over 3,500 Ha under claims. Despite the abundance of quartz, very few deposits are suitable for high purity applications. High Purity Quartz supplies are tightening, prices are rising, and exponential growth is forecast. Quartz from the Roncevaux property successfully passed rigorous testing protocols of a major silicon metal producer confirming that our material is highly suited for their silicon metal production.

About Our Beauce Gold Project – Preparing To Be Spun Out To Unlock Value

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 37 claims 100% owned by Uragold Bay Resources, the project area hosts a six (6) km long unconsolidated gold bearing sedimentary units (a lower saprolite and an upper brown diamictite) holding the largest placer gold deposit in eastern North America. The gold in saprolite indicates a close proximity to a bedrock source of gold providing significant potential for further exploration discoveries.

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:25 AM on Tuesday, May 24th, 2016

  • The company acquires 3rd 100% owned Lithium project
  • LITHMAN WEST is located adjacent to the Tanco Mine Leases, southeast Manitoba
  • The Tanco Mine was Canada’s largest producer of spodumene, tantalum and cesium, producing from the Tanco Pegmatite
  • Spodumene is mined from pegmatites and is one of the primary lithium ore minerals in hard rock lithium mines
  • The Tanco Mine presently produces cesium formate, a completion fluid for the petroleum industry.
  • Project is located 1250 meters along geological strike and to the west of the Tanco Pegmatite
  • The project has excellent infrastructure and is located approximately 140 km (87 miles) northeast of the provincial capital
  • LITHMAN WEST project is situated approximately 9 km from the Lithium One Project, our 2nd project in the prolific Winnipeg River Pegmatite Field

May 24, 2016 / Vancouver, Canada – Pacific North West Capital Corp. (“PFN”, the “Company”) (TSX.V: PFN; Frankfurt: P7J.F; OTCQX: PAWEF announces that it has acquired through staking, an additional lithium project in southeast Manitoba. The project is held in Lithium Canada which is a 100% subsidiary of PFN. Mr. Barr, Chairman and CEO noted that “The project was selected due to favorable local geology and more specifically to cover the gabbro intrusive unit that hosts the world-class Tanco Pegmatite. This strategic Lithium acquisition is the third project added to the company’s growing portfolio of Lithium and Rare Metals projects to fuel the growing demand for energy storage and other core 21st Century Technologies.”

The LITHMAN WEST Project is situated to the west of the present day Tanco Mine, which currently is producing cesium formate, a completion fluid for the petroleum industry. The Tanco Mine, was previously stated as North America’s largest producer of spodumene, tantalum and cesium. Spodumene is one of the primary lithium ores minerals in hard rock Lithium mines. The 100% owned project consists of 7 claims for a total area of 1,047 hectares (2,587 acres). The project is situated to the west and adjacent to the Tanco Mine Leases.

The project area is situated in the Bird River Greenstone Belt and was staked to cover the gabbro intrusive unit that hosts the Tanco Mine. The Tanco Mine is situated at the eastern edge of the gabbro intrusion and this rock unit extends to the west, across the LITHMAN WEST Project area. The project is located approximately 1250 meters west from the known extent of the Tanco Pegmatite and approximately 140 kilometers (87 miles) northeast of Winnipeg, the capital of the province of Manitoba.

The Tanco Pegmatite was discovered on the west side of Bernic Lake from surface drilling in the 1920’s. The mine went into production in 1969 and has produced over the years, in varying capacity, and is still producing today. It is a buried pegmatite and not exposed at surface, except for under Bernic Lake. It is an extremely fractionated, rare-metal, complex type-petalite subgroup, LCT (Lithium-cesium-tantalum) pegmatite and is hosted by a late stage, subvolcanic gabbro. The total tonnage of the Tanco pegmatite has been calculated to be approximately 25 million tons. It is a part of the Bernic Lake Pegmatite Group of the Winnipeg River Pegmatite Field. A western extrapolation of the pegmatite group would extend it onto the LITHMAN WEST Project area.

The company considers the LITHMAN WEST Project to have the potential to host additional Lithium-bearing pegmatites similar to others found in the region. The area has strong infrastructure, is an active mining area, and is along strike of a world-class producing mine. The LITHMAN WEST Project and the Lithium One Project (PFN News Release April 21st, 2016) increases the company’s presence in southeast Manitoba and in the Winnipeg River Pegmatite Field, host to the world-class Tanco Pegmatite.

With respect to the LITHMAN WEST Project, a finder’s fee in the amount of 60,000 shares of the Company is payable to Carey Galeschuk. The finder’s fee is subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval.

All shares issued in connection with the finder’s fee are subject to a four month and one day hold period from the date of issuance.

Further announcements with regards to joint venture partners and exploration plans will be forthcoming.

About The Company’s Lithium Division

The company’s new Lithium Division will focus on the acquisition, exploration and development of Lithium Projects in Canada. In the United States the company will use its wholly owned U.S.A subsidiary to acquire and develop projects in active mining camps in Nevada, Arizona and California.

Management believes that these new age metals, Lithium, PGM’s and Rare Earths, have robust macro trends with surging demands and limited supply. Going forward, this new division will explore for the minerals needed to fuel the demand for energy storage and other core 21st Century Technologies.

The company has a growing portfolio of lithium projects. The Clayton Valley Forks Li Project in Nevada is a recent lithium brine project acquired by the company (PFN News Releases April 25th, 2016 and May 9th, 2016). The company also has hard rock lithium projects in Canada.

Lithium and Platinum group metal prices have improved dramatically in recent months. Lithium supplies remain in deficit relative to their demand. Both metals groups are used for the expanding worldwide automobile industry (conventional and electric). In the case of PGM’s, demand is increasing for autocatalysts, a key component for reducing toxic emissions for automotive, gasoline and diesel engines. In regards to Lithium, there is an ever increasing demand for batteries in cellphones, laptops, electric cars, solar storage, wireless charging and renewable energy products.
