$ St-Georges Announces Kings Of The North Entered Into Option To Acquire Winterhouse Project And Arranged $2,000,000 Debenture Offering

Posted by Er at 12:59 PM on Monday, December 18th, 2017

  • Wholly owned subsidiary entered into an option agreement to acquire a 100% of the Winter House project.
  • On exercise of the Option, KOTN will have 18,000,000 Shares outstanding, of which St-Georges will hold 67%


St-Georges Platinum & Base Metals Ltd. (CSE: SX) (OTC: SXOOF) (FSE: 85G1) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, Kings of the North Corp., entered into an option agreement to acquire a 100% interest in the Winter House project.

King of the North Corp also announces that it has arranged a non-brokered private placement offering (the “Offering”) of unsecured debentures (the “Debentures”) for aggregate maximum gross proceeds of $2,000,000, to be used for working capital and general corporate purposes. The Debentures will have an 18-month maturity date and pay interest at the rate of 10% per annum, calculated quarterly in arrears. Upon the occurrence of a liquidity event in Kings of the North Corp. (a “Liquidity Event”) before the Maturity Date, the Debentures’ aggregate principal amount plus accrued and unpaid interest may be converted at the holder’s option into common shares of Kings of the North Corp. (each a “KOTN Share”) at a deemed conversion price equal to 25% of the liquidity event pricing, subject to a minimum initial issuance of $0.20 per Share and regulatory approval.

Winter House Option

In consideration for the 100% interest in the Property, KOTN will issue an aggregate of 6,000,000 Shares, assume $140,000 in current and on-going exploration expenses and grant a 3.5% net smelter return royalty on the Property.

On exercise of the Option, KOTN will have 18,000,000 Shares outstanding, of which St-Georges will hold 67%.

About the Winter House Project

The Winter House Project consists of 63 map-designated cells covering a surface area of 3,290 hectares (approximately 33 sq. km) and is located approximately 95 kilometres west of the town of Fermont, on the Quebec North Shore.

The Winter House project is part of the Superior geological province and is mainly composed of volcano-sedimentary rock assemblages of the Courcy and Soulard formations in contact with tonalites of the eastern Opatica Subprovince. Winter House is adjacent to the eastern border of Stelmine Canada’s Courcy project, which exposed gold mineralized zones, grading up to 24.8 g/t Au in grab samples (see Stelmine Canada PR dated October 17 of 2017) and up to 167 g/t Au over 0.5 metres in channel samples and up to 4.27 g/t Au over 42 m, including 12.15 g/t Au over 13.5 m in drill samples (Source SIGEOM: GM61872 and GM 62834).

Based on historical work, the Winter House project shows strong electromagnetic anomalies detected by a MAG-AeroTEM (magnetics and electromagnetics) airborne geophysical survey performed in 2008. These anomalies extend over a few kilometres and could represent potential targets for gold. During the summer of 2017, a follow-up reconnaissance program on the ground allowed the vendors to collect a total of 123 bedrock (surface) grab samples on these geophysical anomalies. These samples have been submitted for analyses for gold and a package of multi-elements. The results from these analyses are pending and will be released as soon as all results are received and compiled.

Related Party Transaction

A portion of the Option constitutes a “related party transaction” as set out in Multilateral Instrument 61-101, Protection of Minority Shareholders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”), as Francois (Frank) Dumas and Neha Edah Tally, both officers of St-Georges, will be issued under the Option respectively 1,280,000 and 120,000 Shares. The transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements under MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of any securities issued to or the consideration paid by such persons exceeds 25% of the Company’s market capitalization. The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the closing of the Option as it wished to close on an expedited basis for sound business reasons.

Alain Berclaz, P.Geo, a consultant to St-Georges and a Qualified Person under the definition of Canadian National Instrument 43-101, has approved the technical information in this news release.

$ Explor Increases Ogden Property $ $ $

Posted by Er at 4:20 PM on Thursday, December 14th, 2017

  • Claims acquired because of encouraging results obtained in Explor’s past exploration on this property.
  • Ogden property now consists of 23 mining claims  and 7 patented mining claims covering 2,006 hectares
  • Property obtained to pursue depths between 300 & 600 meters


Explor Resources Inc. (“Explor” or “the Corporation”) (TSX VENTURE:EXS)(OTCQB:EXSFF)(FRANKFURT:E1H1)(BERLIN:E1H1) is pleased to announce the acquisition of two (2) mining claims (3 units) situated in the Ogden Township, in the Porcupine Mining Division, District of Cochrane, Province of Ontario for a total of 48.56 hectares. These claims are located in Ogden Township contiguous and to the east of the Timmins Porcupine West Gold Property. Highway 101 West is north of the property and provided excellent access to the city of Timmins. The claims were acquired because of encouraging results obtained in Explor’s past exploration on this property.

Explor Resources Inc. will pay CDN $2,000 and issue 100,000 common shares to acquire a 100% interest in the additional Ogden mining claims. 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 23 mining claims (118 mineral claim units) and 7 patented mining claims covering 2,006.56 hectares situated in the Porcupine mining division, district of Cochrane, in the Ogden and Price Townships, 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.

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.

  • Final results for the 2017 exploration season from the GR2/HC zone of the Treaty Creek project.
  • HC extension of the GR2 zone was discovered during the 2017 exploration program and carries high-grade gold, silver and base metal mineralization
  • 115.5m of 1.31 G/T Gold Including 39m of 2.38 G/T Gold


American Creek Resources Ltd. has provided information on Tudor Gold’s final results for the 2017 exploration season from the GR2/HC zone of 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 situated in British Columbia’s Golden Triangle along the Sulphurets and Brucejack fault systems that continue northward into the Treaty Creek property.

The HC extension of the GR2 zone was discovered during the 2017 exploration program and carries high-grade gold, silver and base metal mineralization. The HC drill program augmented the previous drill holes in the zone and consisted of 17 drill holes totalling 5,401 metres in 2017. The program was designed with a maximum of 50-metre stepouts in the mineralized zone to prepare for a preliminary resource estimate.

The GR2/HC zone appears to be a gold-rich volcanic-hosted massive sulphide deposit in which the feeder vein system and the stratabound lenses have been intersected. A later silver (lead-zinc-antimony-copper) vein system was also found reactivating some of the previous structures in the same area where the HC extension is located. These veins are late in the formation and are hosted in the volcaniclastic sequence or in the younger Jurassic Hazelton sequence, crosscutting (and reactivating) previous HC related feeder vein system and HC stratabound lenses. The RR Ag-base metal vein holes are collared 800 metres north of the HC zone, following the same structure.

Thirty-six drill holes have been drilled to date in the GR2/HC, covering an area approximately 400 m along strike and 450 m down dip at 50 m space increments that show consistent geology and which demonstrate the distribution and continuity of the feeder vein system, the stratabound zone and the late silver-base metal vein system. Historical surface sampling carried out by previous operators to both the north and south of the GR2/HC zone indicates that the main mineralized structure potentially extends 3,000 m along strike. The mineralized structure remains open to the north and south beyond the existing drill holes, and down dip.

Significant drill results are summarized in the attached tables (all distance measurements reported in metres).

Darren Blaney, chief executive officer of American Creek, stated: “The discovery of the new HC extension is a very welcome bonus to this year’s Treaty Creek drill program. The GR2/HC system appears to have potential to be very extensive, which would add significant value to the adjoining Copper Belle bulk tonnage gold zone, which was the main focus of this year’s drill program. A large polymetallic zone with high-grade gold and silver would be a most welcome addition to the project.”

Two thousand seventeen drill results from the Copper Belle gold zone at Treaty Creek are still pending and will be reported on once received.

Background on the Treaty Creek project

Tudor conducted a major drill program (approximately 20,000 metres) on the Treaty Creek property this summer with the objective of defining a gold resource on the Copper Belle zone.

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

Electrum project road completion

The corporation also reports that Tudor Gold recently completed construction of an access road extension on the Electrum project connecting the existing Granduc haul road to the New Blast/Shiny Cliff high-grade gold and silver zones which are the focus of a planned 10,000-ton bulk sample.

In Tudor’s recent news release, Walter Storm, president and chief executive officer, stated: “We are very pleased to have completed this access road, which will now allow us to proceed with a 10,000-ton bulk sample of this high-grade gold/silver mineralized zone, subject to receipt of permits. A bulk sample in combination with past drill results will further our geological understanding and unlock value of this high-grade mineralized system.”

Background on the Electrum property

The Electrum property is a 60:40 joint venture between Tudor Gold (as operator) and American Creek. It is located between the past-producing Silbak-Premier gold mine and British Columbia’s newest gold mine, Pretium’s Valley of the Kings — recently commissioned at a cost of $1-billion and hosting proven and probable reserves of 8.1 million ounces of gold (see Pretium’s website). Within this rich portion of B.C.’s Golden Triangle are several other past-producing mines as well as numerous new projects undergoing exploration.

About American Creek Resources Ltd.

American Creek holds a strong portfolio of gold and silver properties in British Columbia. The portfolio includes three Golden Triangle gold/silver properties: the Treaty Creek and Electrum joint ventures with Walter Storm/Tudor as well as the recently acquired 100-per-cent-owned past-producing Dunwell mine. Other properties held throughout B.C. include the Gold Hill, Austruck-Bonanza, Ample Goldmax, Silver Side and Glitter King.


$ PyroGenesis Announces Receipt of New Military Contract for Can$325,000 Bringing Total Orders Received to Over Can$1.8 Million $ $DDD $SSYS $PRLB

Posted by Er at 9:08 AM on Wednesday, December 13th, 2017

  • Additional Contracts of $280,000 expected before year end
  • Approximately Can$1.3MM of receivables is in current backlog.

MONTREAL, Dec. 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — PyroGenesis Canada Inc. ( (TSX-V:PYR) (OTCQB:PYRNF), a high-tech corporation (the “Corporation” or “PyroGenesis”) that designs, develops, manufactures and commercializes plasma waste-to-energy systems and plasma torch products, announces today that it has received a military contract for US$255,000 (Can$325,000).

The Corporation had previously announced in a press release dated July 17, 2017, that it had received payments totaling US$925,122 (Can$1.2MM) under a separate military contract worth US$978,312 (Can$1.25MM).  This contract is now complete, and all payments have been received.  Since then, the Corporation has received a number of small contracts, relating to its current military business lines, with a total value exceeding US$1.2MM (Can$1.8MM), including the contract announced today. Approximately Can$1.3MM of this amount is in current backlog. The Corporation expects to receive an additional US$218,000 (Can$280,000) of similar contracts before year end. These contracts are expected to be completed by Q1-2018.

“Our traditional business lines, other than non-additive manufacturing, continue to contribute significantly to the bottom line as can be seen from today’s announcement,” said P. Peter Pascali, President and CEO of PyroGenesis. “PyroGenesis is entering 2018 with the expectation that the Corporation’s non-additive manufacturing business lines will generate enough revenues, on their own in 2018, to make PyroGenesis profitable overall. In fact, we expect to achieve these results from DROSRITE™ sales alone, and that is before any contributions from additional military sales, such as a third plasma based waste destruction system for a US Aircraft Carrier which is expected in 2018. All in all, 2017 has proven to be the pivotal year we expected it to be, and 2018 is shaping up to be even better.”

  • O Cannabis will also be offering a select range of Namaste’s vaporizer hardware in their online platform.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Namaste Technologies Inc. (“Namaste” or the “Company”) (CSE:N)(OTCQB:NXTTF)(FRANKFURT:M5BQ) is pleased to announce that further to its December 5, 2017 announcement: NAMASTE ANNOUNCES NON-BINDING LETTER OF INTENT WITH O CANNABIS CLINIC FOR MANAGEMENT SERVICES, the Company has signed a Services Agreement (the “Agreement”) with O Cannabis We Stand On Guard For Thee Corporation (“O Cannabis”), whereby O Cannabis will provide patient consultation services to Namaste’s wholly owned subsidiary, NamasteMD Inc. (“NamasteMD”). Pursuant to the Agreement, O Cannabis will provide management services to NamasteMD that will include patient consultations, education, strain recommendations and medical document issuance to qualified patients under the guidance of nurse practitioners. In addition to these services, O Cannabis will also be offering a select range of Namaste’s vaporizer hardware in their online platform.

$ Glacier Lake Acquires Silver Star Property $ $

Posted by Er at 9:37 AM on Monday, December 4th, 2017


  • Signed a definitive agreement to acquire the Silver Star property, 72km S/E of Houston
  • Property represents a strategic acquisition in an emerging exploration area.


Glacier Lake Resources Inc. (TSXV:GLI) (“Glacier” or the “Company”) has signed a definitive agreement with an arm’s-length vendor to acquire the Silver Star property, located approximately 72 kilometers southeast of Houston B.C.

Historic exploration work in 2015 discovered a surface mineral showing where a grab sample of malachite and azurite stained siliceous andesite returned a value of 317 grams per tonne silver (g/t) Ag or 9.15 ounces silver per ton and 0.39% copper, with anomalous lead (0.80 % Pb) and zinc (0.08% Zn). The sample was not assayed for gold. Investors are cautioned grab samples are selective samples and are not necessarily representative of the mineralization hosted on the property. Investors should also note Glacier Lake has not verified the data. There is no record of prior or subsequent historic exploration on the Silver Star property.

“The Silver Star property represents a further strategic acquisition in an emerging exploration area of central British Columbia, energized by the exploration success of New Nadina on the Silver Queen property. Acquiring a project with significant silver values in prospective geology in an attractive structural setting with only limited exploration history serves as a focal point for further discoveries” stated Saf Dhillon, Glacier Lake’s president and chief executive officer. “With excellent road access, exploration activities can continue on the property year-round.”

The Silver Star property is underlain by Cretaceous Kasalka group andesitic volcanics and Middle Jurassic Bowser Lake group clastic sediments. A Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) 1992 structural study shows the Silver Star property is located within bounding NW-SE regional fault structures that extend south from the Equity Silver Mine, where historic production of 33.8 million tonnes grading 0.4 per cent copper, 64.9 grams per tonne silver and 0.46 gram per tonne gold was recorded between 1990 and 1994. Glacier Lake has not verified the historic Equity Silver Mine production and further cautions investors the mineralization at Equity Silver is not necessarily indicative of mineralization at Silver Star.

The 1992 GSC structural study indicates the Silver Star property straddles the junction of the western portion of the Cheslatta Caldera Complex, the northern portion of the Quanchus Caldera, and the south-eastern extension of the Buck Creek Caldera (host of the Equity Silver Mine). Glacier Lake feels the interpretation of multiple caldera features with associated silver values at the Silver Star property has similarities with the caldera hosted New Nadina Explorations Silver Queen vein system located 42 kilometres to the northwest.

The newly discovered mineral showing consists of mini-quartz stockworks, brecciation and quartz/ chalcedony alteration. Prospecting in 2015 focused on a highly siliceous gossanous andesite outcrop with azurite/malachite oxidation and possible tetrahedrite. Other samples in the general area reported moderate Fe stained chalcedonic veining with a smoky matrix. A second grab sample in the discovery outcrop area returned 42.7 g/t Ag, 310 parts per million (ppm) Cu. 563 ppm Pb, and 585 ppm Zn.

In consideration for the property, Glacier Lake will issue one million common shares. Completion of the acquisition is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. All common shares issued will be subject to a four-month-and-one-day statutory hold period.
