Quebec Quartz Provides General Information on Silicon Metal and High Purity Quartz

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:46 AM on Thursday, August 28th, 2014

Montreal, Quebec / August 28 2014 / Uragold Bay Resources Inc. (“Uragold”) (TSX Venture: UBR) through it’s wholly owned subsidiary, Quebec Quartz is pleased to offer the investing public the following general information on Silicon Metal and the High Purity Quartz.

Uragold and Quebec Quartz will concentrate their work on High Purity Quartz and Metallurgical Silicon Metal for which applications and dollar value of quartz greatly vary based on the purity of the material. The company acquired some of the most prospective historical High Purity Quartz (HPQ) deposits with High Purity Silica (+98.5% SiO2) (HPS) values in Quebec during Q2 2014 through it’s subsidiary Quebec Quartz.

The Quebec Quartz assets can be viewed at: http://www.uragold.com/Quebec-Quartz.php

Patrick Levasseur, President and COO of Uragold stated that: “We have noticed in the last few months that investors are very eager to hear about the developments for silicon metal in Quebec but have not been able to find a comprehensive source for researching the potential of the market.” Mr. Levasseur went on to add: “We are thus extremely pleased to offer investor this first of hopefully many non-exhaustive educational news releases.”

What are High Purity Quartz and Silicon Metal?

High Purity Quartz

  • High Purity Quartz (HPQ) has a purity level in excess of 99.997% and is extremely rare.-Used in the semiconductor industry to produce crucibles and quartz glass products, such as windows, rods, and tubes [Source].-Also used in the production of silicon metal, which is the base for the semiconductor wafers, made using the Czochralski Process [Source].
  • High purity quartz deposits with low impurities are rare, world supplies are tightening and HPS prices are rising [Source ].
  • Demand for HPQ is growing with the high tech industry and the price for premium HPQ can vary between US$ 8,000 to US$ 25,000 or more per ton depending on the specifications needed for the final application [Source ].

Metallurgical Silicon Metal

  • Metallurgical Silicon Metal has a purity of 98.5% or higher and is used as an alloying agent in the aluminum industry due to its ability to increase the strength of aluminum [Source].-Adding Silicon Metal to aluminum alloys makes them strong and light [Source].-As a result they are increasingly used in the automotive industry to replace heavier cast iron components [Source].
  • Allows weight reductions and a reduction in fuel consumption [Source].
  • Demand for aluminium has increased 5% CAGR over the past 20 years [Source].
  • It has also been reported that the solar industry will have it’s first global panel shortage since 2006 [Source].
  • It has become one of today’s key strategic minerals with applications in high-tech industries that include semiconductors, LCD displays, fused quartz tubing, microelectronics, solar silicon applications and recently, Silicon Anode Lithium Batteries
  • Silicon Metal with 98.50% SiO2 purity sells for about US$ 3,200 per ton (or US$ 1.45 US a pound) [Source].

Ferro Silicon

  • Has a purity of 50%-98% SiO2, produced by reduction of silica or sand with coke in presence of iron [Source].-Ferrosilicon is used as a source of silicon to reduce metals from their oxides and to deoxidize steel and other ferrous alloys [Source].-Ferrosilicon is also used for manufacture of silicon, corrosion-resistant and high-temperature resistant ferrous silicon alloys, and silicon steel for electromotors and transformer cores [Source].
  • Usual formulations on the market are ferrosilicons with 15%, 45%, 75%, and 90% silicon [Source].
  • Ferrosilicon with 75% SiO2 purity sells for about US$ 2,170 per ton (or US$ 0.985 a pound) [Source].

Frac Sand

  • Lower quality silica is used for frac sand in the oil and gas industry.-Frac sand is in high demand and will experience a 30% increase in growth as the shale gas industry continues to grow [Source].-Pricing for Frac sand remains well below US$ 100 per ton [Source].

About Quebec Quartz

Uragold acquired some of the most prospective historical High Purity Quartz deposits with High Purity Silica (+99.5% SiO2) (HPS) values in Quebec during Q2 2014. Quebec Quartz is a 100% own subsidiary of Uragold Bay Resources, a junior exploration company listed on the TSX Venture under the symbol UBR. Quebec Quartz holds a strategic portfolio of high purity silica (+99.5% SiO2) deposits and closed silicon metal mines in Quebec.

About Silica

Quartz is one of the most abundant minerals. It occurs in many different settings throughout the geological record. High Purity Quartz deposits with low impurities are rare. However, only very few deposits are suitable in volume, quality and amenability to tailored refining methods for specialty high purity applications.

High Purity Silica (HPS) and Silicon Metal which is used in large part in the aluminum industry has become one of today’s key strategic minerals with applications in high-tech industries that include semiconductors, LCD displays, fused quartz tubing, microelectronics, solar silicon applications and recently, Silicon Anode Lithium Batteries

Lexaria Announces Responsible Marijuana Policy

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 8:06 AM on Thursday, August 28th, 2014

KELOWNA, BC / August 28, 2014 / Lexaria Corp. (OTCQB: LXRP) (CSE: LXX) (the “Company” or “Lexaria” or “our” or “Lexaria CanPharm Corp”) announces our new corporate policies regarding the responsible use of medical marijuana.

In Canada, the MMPR legislation governed by Health Canada provides the framework by which qualified persons can access marijuana for medical purposes. Recently, the Supreme Court of British Columbia has also ruled that medical marijuana is a constitutional right for persons in need, deliverable in forms commonly referred to as “oils and edibles”. Lexaria intends to comply with the laws and regulations within every jurisdiction in which it might operate.

In addition, it is our philosophy to recognize the potential for harm within this sensitive industry and to build a set of corporate policies that go above and beyond those required by law. Lexaria is leading the industry with these policies.

Therefore, Lexaria is establishing a corporate policy wherein we will not knowingly sell medical cannabis containing more than 0.3% THC to any medical marijuana patient who is under the age of 21, unless it is in a form specifically approved by relevant government health agencies.

“Our goal is to safely help people live healthy and productive lives,” said Chris Bunka, CEO of Lexaria. “We want to be sure to do no harm and Lexaria’s policies are a big step in the right direction – ensuring members of our community are receiving the health benefits they need.”

Broadly speaking, there are two main ‘families’ of active ingredients in marijuana: THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) which have primarily psychoactive properties accompanied by possible medicinal qualities; and CBD (Cannabidiol) which are believed to have more significant medicinal properties and do NOT generally have psychoactive properties. Introductory information about Cannabidiol can be found at Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cannabidiol

Our underage policy makes Lexaria’s and Lexaria CanPharm’s medical marijuana sales policies more restrictive than Canada’s alcohol consumption laws; and broadly in line with the USA’s alcohol consumption laws. We believe it would not be responsible to provide medical marijuana with THC-psychoactive properties to underage persons, so long as there is a CBD-based available alternative with medical properties that can meet a potential patient’s needs. We would welcome any development that sees the medical marijuana industry sector follow our lead on this issue and restrict the selling of marijuana containing THC to underage persons.

Many health care practitioners are reluctant to support the use of medical marijuana in underage patients, and it is our hope that our underage policy helps to address those concerns.

Also, Lexaria does not encourage nor support consuming marijuana through the act of smoking. Some research has indicated that the act of burning marijuana may negatively affect the delivery of potentially helpful CBD-based compounds, and smoking any substance is not conducive to good health practices. Lexaria’s policy, for those who require medical marijuana, is to encourage its consumption through edible and other legal forms that do not require smoking.

Lexaria encourages persons across Canada or in the USA whose philosophy regarding the responsible use of marijuana is in accordance with our own, to register at our website (www.lexariaenergy.com). Lexaria wishes to build a community of like-minded, responsible medical users of marijuana who can share their experiences and knowledge with each other for the benefit of all. Lexaria CanPharm Corp is in the development stages of a new website which will be announced when complete.

Lexaria reminds all parties that it does not currently posses a production license under Health Canada’s MMPR program, nor in any other jurisdiction, and cannot fill any medical marijuana prescription orders at this time.

About Lexaria

Lexaria’s shares are quoted in the USA with symbol LXRP and in Canada with symbol LXX. The company searches for projects that could provide potential above-market returns.

Progress at Lexaria’s Belmont Lake Oil Field

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 8:41 AM on Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

Kelowna, BC / ACCESSWIRE / August 27, 2014 / Lexaria Corp. (LXRP-OTCQB) (LXX-CNSX) (the “Company” or “Lexaria”) is pleased to report of new developments at the Belmont Lake oil field in Mississippi.

Well PPF-12-7 was drilled in December 2013 but was never put into production due to seasonal delays. Lexaria is pleased to report that field work is currently underway with the goal of placing this well into production as soon as possible. Unless there are unexpected complications, this new well is expected to be in production and cash-flowing within roughly 30 days.

The PPF-12-7 sidewall core analysis indicated 19-20 feet (true vertical depth) of oil bearing pay. Oil and yellow fluorescence was encountered with recovered oil samples grading as high as 33 API. Permeability was very high across the entire sampled area, ranging from 3,100 millidarcies to as high as 4,750 millidarcies. For comparison, sand has a permeability of approx. 1,000 millidarcies. Lexaria’s technical consultants believe the high permeability could be indicative of a positive flow test.

Work is now underway to finish completion of the well and install production equipment and flow lines. A new production facility is planned as part of the overall 12-7 completion process that is separate from the existing production facility that handles production from the pre-existing four Belmont Lake wells. The new production facility will require shorter flow lines, is topographically higher, and less prone to seasonal high water fluctuations, which together should lead to more efficient and reliable full-year production.

More information, including eventual flow test results, will be released when available. Griffin & Griffin Exploration, LLC is the operator of the well which was drilled in Section 41, Township 2 North – Range 4 West of Wilkinson Country, Mississippi.

Lexaria retains a 42% working interest in the producing 12-1 and 12-3 wells; a 50% working interest in the suspended 12-4 and 12-5 wells; and a 13.3% working interest in the 12-7 well. Lexaria is actively reviewing all possible ways of maximizing value from the Belmont Lake oil field assets.

CLIENT FEATURE: Robix (RZX: CSE) Revolutionary Oil Spill Clean Up Technology

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 12:03 PM on Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

RZX: CSE

The Corporation is an “industrial products/technology” company, offering to investors a unique opportunity to participate in a leading company in the business of ownership of patents, and their development from commercialization to worldwide expansion through various business arrangements.

Highly Cost Effective – Clean Ocean Vessel

  • The COV’s rapid recovery rate and large on-board storage result in low per barrel recovery cost.
  • The COV’s simple design minimizes down time for repair and maintenance.
  • A two-man crew can be easily trained and the COV vessel can operate long hours without interruption
  • Detailed construction progress report is expected in August 2014, with testing and commissioning of the COV anticipated in Q3 of 2014

Design Versatility

  • COV’S can be scaled to meet various application requirements (sizes range from 10 Ft., 20 Ft., 40 Ft., 80 Ft., 100 Ft. (references to length of vessel
  • A standard 40-foot COV is 40 feet in length, 26 feet in width, and 12 feet in depth
  • The following page has a 3D visual description of a COV
  • Recently completed the engineering drawings for the Clean Ocean Vessel (COV) and ordered critical components to initiate construction on the COV

Recent Highlights

  • Creating a new business division, through a subsidiary entity, to enter into the marine industry.
  • Announced that Rick Carson, of Montreal, PQ, has agreed to join Robix as a Strategic Advisor.
  • Announced that it intends to enter into an agreement with Rayco Steel Inc., wherein Rayco shall work on completion of engineering construction drawings for the anticipated construction of the first Clean Ocean Vessel.

How the COV compares to the competition:

  • Rates of oil recovered and recovery-throughput efficiencies are noted as “oil rate of recovery” (ORR) and “recovery efficiency” (RE).
  • The water surface lifting force generated by the COV’s patented contra-rotating drums acts in a suction or pumping manner that increases the ORR compared to conventional skimmer systems and the RE of the COV is in the 90-97% range. This is competitive with best in class 21st century technology in terms of ORR and RE.
  • Further improvements to the ORR (in terms of gallons per minute) could easily catapult the COV to “top three” status, by increasing the surface area of the drums through design modifications without impairing the stability of the vessel which is inherent to the COV design.
  • When our competitors’ skimmer systems meet waves above 18 inches, they are forced to suspend service. The COV operates in rough sea conditions (as high as 8 feet waves), significantly out-performing its competitors, and stands in a class of its own.

Featured COV Technology

Company Objectives

  • Seeks to establish itself as a leading intellectual property holder to help meet the worlds growing energy needs, while considering the significant requirement to find and use the most effective integrated green energy solutions.
  • Protection of the environment, whether it is on land, sea, or in the air is still a growing global concern and in the 21st century, more than ever, it is imperative that effective products and services be available. Since its incorporation, Robix has sought to expand its capability to package and deliver these critical resources.

AGORACOM Welcomes Supreme Pharmaceuticals (SL: CSE) Canada’s Newest Entrant to $1.3B Medical Marijuana Industry

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 10:53 AM on Monday, August 25th, 2014

SL: CSE

Supreme Pharmaceuticals Inc. dedicated to securing multiple producing medical marijuana facilities in Canada and applying for several MMPR commercial production licences.

South Okanagan Producing Facility

About The Facility

The Vendor currently owns its own facility in Okanagan Falls, British Columbia. The Vendor has cost effectively facilitated Personal-use Production License holders production of monthly crops of approximately 16,000 grams/month of medical marihuana in full compliance with all regulatory authorities. In the application for the MMPR, the company has applied for a significantly larger amount for commercial production.

The medical marijuana currently produced by private license holders requires a strictly controlled and augmented growing environment to consistently reach optimal plant characteristics in 90 days. The Vendor has designed and constructed 3 indoor purpose specific greenhouses, each of which are planted monthly, and harvested at 90 days.

Each greenhouse is fully climate controlled, with all key growing elements monitored and computer controlled to ensure consistent production. There are production elements, which require brief manual monitoring and intervention on a daily basis, but all key environmental functions are electronically controlled. The details of the process are highly commercially sensitive and valuable, and will not be disclosed until a full sale transaction is concluded.

The facility has been built to be fully compliant with all relevant building and safety requirements. All electrical, plumbing, security, and related plant and equipment are built to full commercial standards.

The facility has received and replied to the Department of Health Canada on its Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations Licence (MMPR) application, who required additional information on:

  • External and internal security measures
  • Updated site survey and aerial photographs
  • Further information on principal and proposed technical employees
  • Details on record keeping and information handling procedures

The Vendor has engaged external consultants and specialists to assist in the application process who have been able to respond and provide the requested documentation in a timely manner. While the Vendor is confident that their prior experience and expertise in the industry and the high commercial standards of the production facility will enable full compliance with Department of Health requirements for a full commercial MMPR license, there is no guarantee a MMPR license will be granted.

Management of Supreme and its operating subsidiary recently met with government officials, including the fire chief, local politicians, and community stakeholders in the township where its Southern Ontario green house facility (Facility 2) is located. The Company does not foresee any concerns in this area as construction progresses such that it may eventually receive final receipt of the MMPR license.

Enertopia Makes Steady Progress as Industry Heats Up

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 10:33 AM on Monday, August 25th, 2014

WHITEFISH, MT / August 25, 2014 / Canada’s Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (“MMPR”) program has been mired in controversy since the beginning. After switching from the Medical Marihuana Access Regulations (“MMAR”) to the MMPR program in October 1, 2013, Personal Use Production Licenses (“PUPL”) and Designated Person Production Licenses (“DPPL”) were phased out on March 31, 2014.

The transition from the MMAR to the MMPR program was designed to move marijuana production out of homes and into tightly regulated corporations. Unfortunately, these dynamics translated to an immediate increase in costs for many medical marijuana patients, which led to lawsuits against Health Canada to permit home growing until a better plan was established.

In the meantime, Health Canada has approved 13 licensed producers under the MMPR program that have already begun selling product. These sales are likely to accelerate as the new MMPR program picks up steam, with the government projecting about $1.3 billion per year in revenue by 2024, while home growing operations are likely to end in the near-term following the court resolutions.

Industry Heating Up

The large potential market for licensed producers under the MMPR program has led to tremendous investor interest in the space. With four licensed producers undergoing transactions to become publicly traded, including OrganiGram Inc. (TSX-V: OGI), Mettrum Ltd., Bedrocan Canada Inc., and PharmaCan Capital, investors will have the ability to invest directly or indirectly in seven of the 13 licensed producers.

Tweed Marijuana Inc. (TSX-V: TWD) (OTC: TWJMF) was the first publicly traded licensed producer and has already achieved a market capitalization of over $100 million, as of August 2014. Many private licensed producers have also reported rising demand from fund managers and venture capital firms looking for a piece of the action, signaling investor confidence in the MMPR’s ultimate success.

With many of these publicly traded companies already reaching $50 to $100 million valuations, investors may want to take a look at promising aspiring licensed producers that may be trading at a discount. Diversification across several companies that are approved and/or seeking approval may be the best way to reduce risk in a sector that is characterized by its high volatility.

Making Steady Progress

Enertopia Corp. (OTC: ENRT), with a market cap of only $10.6 million, is an aspiring licensed producer under Canada’s MMPR program that sets itself apart from the competition. With extensive experience under the prior MMAR program, the company has experience growing and handling medical marijuana, unlike many other newer applicants, and regulators know they can trust the firm to deliver on its promises.

CannabisFN Executive Interview | Enertopia Corp. (OTCQB: ENRT) from TDM Financial on Vimeo.

The company’s three major projects are all making steady progress. Security upgrades are being installed at the Green Canvas project in Saskatchewan; design upgrades are in the works at the GTA project in Ontario in partnership with Lexaria Corp. (OTC: LXRP); and, the World of Marijuana project is awaiting its Health Canada site visit as the government continues to work through its backlog.

The company is also actively pursuing opportunities to diversify into related areas like oils, edibles, and industrial hemp markets across North America. Management hopes that these efforts to establish multiple revenue streams will reduce risk for investors and ultimately help internally finance its growth. These efforts also set the company apart from many other pure-plays in the space.

Looking Ahead

Canada’s medical marijuana space may have had a rough start, but the MMPR program appears to be picking up steam. As Health Canada’s site visits take place, many companies are also becoming acquisition targets, as evidenced by Tweed’s acquisition of Park Lane Farms following its approval earlier this month. These dynamics could justify even higher valuations for smaller firms in the space.

Enertopia has a key advantage with its MMAR operating history and experienced management team. As it continues to progress towards licensure, investors in the marijuana space may want to take a second look, including those involved with U.S.-based companies like Medical Marijuana Inc. (OTC: MJNA) or Hemp Inc. (OTC: HEMP), given Canada’s more established federal-level programs.

Garibaldi Resources Corp. Reports High-grade silver and increasing base metal values sampled up to 3 km south of Silver Eagle discovery

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 8:06 AM on Friday, August 22nd, 2014

TSXV: GGI
OTC: GGIFF
Frankfurt: RQM

VANCOUVER, Aug. 22, 2014  – Garibaldi Resources Corp. (TSX.V: GGI) (the “Company” or “Garibaldi”) is pleased to report that as Phase 2 diamond drilling continues at its Silver Eagle target (Rodadero North Project) in central Sonora State, surface sampling results from mineralized outcrops indicate continued high silver values in addition to a significant increase in base metal content (up to 14.9% lead and 1.8% zinc) 1.5 km to 3 km south of discovery hole SE-14-01.

Phase 1 drilling confirmed a shallow high-grade mineralized system open in all directions at Silver Eagle and apparently widening to the south toward the Reales area (see August 5, 2014 news release). Further work is continuing to determine the relationship between the Silver Eagle and Reales targets.

Steve Regoci, President and CEO of Garibaldi, commented: “The similarities of the silver grades in our sampling from Silver Eagle to the south are extremely encouraging. This also correlates with our hyperspectral ‘hot spot’ signatures that initially identified the contiguous Silver Eagle and Reales targets.

“Importantly, as we track mineralization through Reales, we continue to sample high silver grades while the base metal content appears to increase substantially. To the east and southeast of Silver Eagle, we’re investigating what seems to be predominantly gold-silver mineralization with some very high metal values from sampling as previously announced. The clustering of targets along a 10 kilometer distance at Rodadero North is the focus of an expanded exploration program.”

Assays from a total of 23 rock samples selected 1.5 km to 3 km south of Silver Eagle ranged from 6.5 g/t Ag to 549 g/t Ag, and from 0.15% Pb to 14.9% Pb. Average values from these selected dump, grab and channel samples were 117 g/t Ag and 4.9% Pb.

Highlights from the sampling at Reales are as follows:

Sample No. Target Ag (g/t) Pb (%)
865080 Reales central 549 5.8
865079 Reales central 210 13.1
26149 Reales central 198 4.4
121036 Reales central 110 11.4
121115 Reales central 18.9 14.9
62 Reales south 216 2.3
63 Reales south 336 4.8
64 Reales south 100 3.0

Four of the above samples from Reales central also returned elevated copper values ranging from 0.16% in sample no. 121036 to 0.66% Cu in sample no. 865080. Two samples (26149 and 865080) from Reales central returned zinc grades of 1.8% and 0.49%, respectively.

Sampling will soon be carried out over the northern section of Reales and additional areas throughout the target.

By the nature of the biases of sampling, the above sampling results are not necessarily representative of mineralization at Rodadero North in general or, specifically, within the zones, structures or geological features that were sampled.

Sampling data from other target areas at Rodadero are being compiled and interpreted, and the Company looks forward to releasing additional results in the near future.

Quality Assurance & Control

Garibaldi maintains strict QA-QC protocols for all aspects of its exploration programs that include the systematic insertion of blanks and standards into each sample batch. Acme Labs (now part of the Bureau Veritis group that includes BSI Inspectorate) performed assay analyses on core, and ALS Global (formerly ALS Chemex) performed analyses on rock samples. All samples were assayed using certified and industry standard assay techniques for gold and multi-element packages for other elements and for over-limits. Au was analyzed by 30 or 50 gram fire assay with an atomic absorption finish, and other elements were analyzed by multi-element ICP.

Qualified Person

Dr. Craig Gibson, Certified Professional Geologist and a director of Garibaldi, is a non-arms length Qualified Person for the Company’s Mexico projects and the direct manager of the technical programs operated under contract by Prospeccion Y Desarrollo Minero del Norte (ProDeMin).
