  • Received licensing documentation from the Icelandic government confirming that a definitive license to conduct mineral exploration on the Trollaskagi permit
  • Identified as EL06, granted to the company in July

Montreal, Quebec / August 17, 2017 – St-Georges Platinum and Base Metals Ltd. (CSE: SX) (OTC: SXOOF) (FSE: 85G1) is pleased to announce that it has received licensing documentation from the Icelandic government confirming that a definitive license to conduct mineral exploration on the Trollaskagi permit, identified as EL06, was granted to the company in July.

As per press release dated March 16, 2017, St-Georges gained control, directly or indirectly, of all the active mineral tenures in Iceland through the acquisition of Iceland Resources EHF. The newly granted exploration license covers 1017.7 square kilometers and is located in northern Iceland near the town of Akureyri. The area is fairly accessible; tracks and roads encompass the majority of the permitted zone. The Company can also rely on the infrastructure of nearby municipalities.

Peaks in the region reach 1,538 meters above sea level. The area is characterized by calderas containing extensive rhyolite and low temperature zeolite alteration. A considerable reconnaissance effort was affected here by Melmi (Fleming, 2006) to identify any potential gold occurrences. Trollaskagi is located in an area with a mapped felsic central volcano that has not been explored in work conducted by previous explorers, Teck and Melmi. In 2006, Melmi conducted a program of stream sediment sampling in most of the major valleys using roads, tracks, and foot-traverses for access. Rock samples were also collected where alteration was encountered.

The license allows the holder to explore for minerals at surface, to research the dispersion, quantity and the geological and physical characteristics of the metals within the license area.

The license also allows the holder to perform drilling surveys in areas within the specified boundaries as long as the drilling program is submitted to the government and local authorities for compliance review and acceptance. This license does not give the holder permission to exploit a mining operation as mine permitting requires additional licensing reviews.

“(…) We are pleased with the decision of the Icelandic government in the matter of the Trollaskagi license,” said St-Georges’ president, Frank Dumas. “We have designed an initial exploration program for the area, which we expect to execute before the end of the next quarter. Findings will orient further work that should take place in late spring and summer of 2018. This is the second exploration license out of 8 applications that is granted to us and we are looking forward to continue our work in Iceland and move along the balance of our permitting effort (…) Achieving this milestone is essential as it demonstrates the expertise and commitment of our team in Iceland, and the Icelandic Government’s support of the development of the natural resource potential.”

Further information on the work program for Trollaskagi will be detailed in future press releases.

  • Start of drilling and trenching at it’s 100% owned Buckingham graphite project in Quebec
  • To date one hole and two trenches have been completed, all of which show visible graphite mineralization

Toronto, Ontario–(August 17, 2017) – CKR Carbon Corporation. (TSXV: CKR) (FSE: CB81) (“CKR” or the “Company”) an integrated graphite to hybrid graphenes advanced nano material development company is pleased to announce the start of drilling and trenching at it’s 100% owned Buckingham graphite project in Quebec. To date one hole and two trenches have been completed, all of which show visible graphite mineralization.

Graphite in the first hole occurs in mineralized marble from 20 metres to 30 metres and from 50 to 107 metres, with un-mineralized quartzite in between. Graphite also occurs in marble in the second hole from 10 metres to 28 metres which is the current depth of the hole.

Trenching is following up on electromagnetic anomalies determined by an airborne survey carried out in the fall of 2016. Two trenches have been completed, the first of which uncovered graphite mineralized marble with the graphite mineralization easily identified by blue-grey coloured smearing in the bottom of the trench (see Figure 1). The second trench also shows marble hosted graphite mineralization with the north wall of the trench appearing to be well mineralized (see Figure 2). The graphite mineralization uncovered by the trenches extends the known mineralization in the Case Zone a further 300 metres along strike to the south.

Nielsen count: Measuring value of #Esports tournaments $GMBL.us

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 11:04 AM on Thursday, August 17th, 2017
  • Nielsen has launched a competitive gaming branch that will measure the value of esports tournaments, events and streams
  • Also release global fan insights throughout the year, with a new research offering spanning the United State, England, Germany, France, Japan, South Korea, and China in 2017

Nielsen developed Esport24, a syndicated sponsorship tracking service for esports tournaments. The service measures brand exposure in esports tournaments representing a variety of titles, event formats and geographic locations based on the same methodology that allows traditional sports rights holders and brands to quantify value and benchmark performance.

Nielsen has created an esports advisory board of industry stakeholders who will provide insight to help shape the future of esports audience measurement and valuation. ESL, ESPN, Facebook, FIFA, Major League Gaming/Activision Blizzard, NBA 2K League, The Next Level, Sony PlayStation, Turner, Twitch, Twitter, Unilever, and Google YouTube are all part of the board.

“The global, digital and young nature of esports fan base audience represents advertising’s most highly sought after segment, yet consistent and high quality data has been a challenge to measure and define,” said Craig Levine, CEO of North America, ESL. “As ESL has been pioneering esports for the past 15 years, we have witnessed the incredible growth and enthusiasm of our audience.

“We’re excited to partner with Nielsen and other industry leaders to guide the framework to measure esports sponsorships, shape the industry, and help further accelerate the esports industry overall.”

Nielsen is one of top market research firms that measure the TV and media business.

Stephen Master and Nicole Pike will-lead the global Nielsen Esports business.

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:43 AM on Thursday, August 17th, 2017

New age large

  • Midway through 16,500ft drill program
  • Abitibi Geophysics has completed the final IP geophysical report
  • Drilling has been focused on follow-up drilling to further test the continuation of the Pine Zone and Dana North Zone
  • Further drilling will test the geophysical targets from the IP Survey
  • River Valley is the Largest Undeveloped Primary PGM resource in Canada, with 2.5 Moz PGM, in Measured Plus Indicated mineral resources and near-surface mineralization covering over 16kms of strike.

August 17th, 2017 / Vancouver, Canada – New Age Metals Inc. (TSXV: NAM; OTCQB: PAWEF; FSE: P7J.F) is pleased to announce that the 2017 Drill Program is at the midway point in the planned program on the Dana North (T3) and Pine Zone at the River Valley PGM Project, approximately 100 kilometers east of Sudbury, Ontario. The Induced Polarization (IP) geophysical survey and borehole geophysics was completed by Abitibi Geophysics and a final report has been completed. The first portion of the drill program was concentrated on follow-up drill testing of the 2015-2016 PGM mineralization at the Pine Zone. Drilling will now focus on the geophysical interpretation from the recently completed IP Survey.

The Pine Zone is one of numerous prospective PGM zones (Figure 2) within the district-scale River Valley PGM Project and was recently drilled in the fall of 2016 (press release December 13, 2016). The 2016 drill program confirmed the higher-grade, near-surface PGM discovery made in the 2015 drill program (press release March 11, 2015), and highlighted the continuity of the mineralization for 200 metres along strike and 100-200 metres depth at the Pine Zone. The Pine Zone remains open along strike and at depth. The recent drill program (Figure 1) has completed 6 follow-up holes on this zone. Approximately 5000 meters (16,500 feet) of drilling is planned for the present drill program. The first batch of assays has been sent to the laboratory and results are expected in the next few weeks. The second batch of assays is scheduled to be sent to the laboratory after the next drill hole.

The surface IP geophysical survey was designed to test the eastward and southward extension and dip/plunge of the Pine Zone, as well as the adjacent Dana North Zone (Figure 1). The extension of the IP survey tested the Banshee Zone. Initial interpretations are complete and the final report has been completed. Several new targets from the geophysics have been identified and are planned for drill testing.

  • Commenced the 2017 first pass exploration program on its Silver Vista property near Smithers, British Columbia
  • Multiple objectives of the first pass program are to verify access into the various parts of the property, locate the main showings and prospect favourable areas

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 16, 2017 — Glacier Lake Resources Inc. (“Glacier”  “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has commenced the 2017 first pass exploration program on its Silver Vista property near Smithers, British Columbia. The multiple objectives of the first pass program are to verify access into the various parts of the property, locate the main showings and prospect favourable areas identified by Amarc Resources Ltd., during its 2011 through 2014 exploration programs.

Glacier Lake plans to follow this first pass program with a diamond drilling program later in the field season. The Company has posted the requested bond with the British Columbia Ministry of Energy and Mines and anticipates receiving its drilling permit shortly.

The drilling will target the MR zone, a clastic sediment-hosted, fine grained, disseminated copper silver zone. Historic exploration includes soil geochemistry, trenching and diamond drilling in an area of limited outcrop exposure:

Soil geochemistry outlined an area approximately 1.5 by 2.0 kilometres around the MR prospect area.Six excavator trenches highlighted an area 100 metres long by 17 metres wide, with three of the trenches intersecting mineralized bedrock: trench 2 – 10.5 metres at 0.22% Cu and 38 gpt Ag, trench 3 – 16.5 metres at 0.53% Cu and 74 gpt Ag and trench 4 – 15 metres at 0.53% Cu and 28 gpt Ag.Fourteen drill holes totaling 1,252.5 metres identified a semi-continuous zone 300 metres long by 50 metres wide by 3 to 150 metres deep with two of the holes ending in mineralization. Key intercepts include: MR91-01 – 32.87 metres at 0.19% Cu and 34.8 gpt Ag, MR91-03 – 61.91 metres at 0.11% Cu and 40.5 gpt Ag, MR91-04 – 25.9 metres at 0.08% Cu and 62.6 gpt Ag and MR92-02 – 36.58 metres at 0.49% Cu and 26.8 gpt Ag.

Three other anomalous zones were identified by Amarc during its exploration programs. Further details can be found in the recently completed 43-101 report on the property located under the Company’s SEDAR profile.

College #Esports Teams Aim To Get Varsity Sport Status $GMBL.us

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 6:00 PM on Wednesday, August 16th, 2017
  • New leagues. Tespa’s events now include competitions in Overwatch, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, StarCraft II, World of Warcraft and Rocket League.
  • Open membership. Previously, students had to compete in a Tespa league or go to a university with a Tespa chapter. This year, students at any North American university may compete, a move Tespa hopes will spur chapter creation.
  • Six broadcasts a week, and on- and off-seasons for each game (Overwatch in the fall, for example, and Hearthstone or Heroes in the spring.)

I write about PC gaming, virtual reality games and Blizzard eSports.Opinions expressed by Forbes Contributors are their own.

Heroes of the Dorm Blizzard Entertainment

Fans cheer on University of California, Irvine, at the 2017 Heroes of the Dorm competition.

Two announcements today will help esports take one more step toward traditional competitive sports status at universities around the country.

Tespa, organizers of the “Heroes of the Dorm” competitions broadcast on ESPN networks, announced a slew of new changes for its events designed to direct more scholarship money towards student gamers and encourage participation from more university campuses. Among the announcements:

  • New leagues. Tespa’s events now include competitions in Overwatch, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, StarCraft II, World of Warcraft and Rocket League.
  • Open membership. Previously, students had to compete in a Tespa league or go to a university with a Tespa chapter. This year, students at any North American university may compete, a move Tespa hopes will spur chapter creation.
  • Six broadcasts a week, and on- and off-seasons for each game (Overwatch in the fall, for example, and Hearthstone or Heroes in the spring.)
  • More money. Tespa tournaments will hand out more than $800,000 in scholarships and $200,000 in other prizes. Heroes of the Dorm winners already received full scholarships for the remainder of their college careers.
  • In-game rewards. Tespa competitors in Blizzard Entertainment titles–all the games on the list but Rocket League–will earn in-game goodies such as Hearthstone card packs or Heroes of the Storm loot chests by progressing in standing with Tespa.

In a simultaneous statement, Georgia State University announced that it will join two collegiate gaming leagues, the National Association of Collegiate eSports (NACE, which has 33 programs) and the new Georgia Esports League (GEL), which launches next month. GSU will become the latest university to award scholarships, practice facilities and other varsity-team perks to its gamers, joining such campuses as University of California, Irvine; Western Kentucky University and the University of Utah.

 

Blizzard Entertainment

Adam Rosen

“One of the things we’re focused on is to help grow collegiate teams in the esports space,” said Adam Rosen. He and twin brother Tyler founded Tespa when they were students at  the University of Texas at Austin. “We want competing for universities to be an aspirational thing. A lot of times universities are a little bit scared of it. It’s a risky endeavor. We’re attempting to provide assurances that our leagues will be around for multiple years, and formats will be consistent. We strongly feel it’s going to be the best year ever for esports.”

Tespa’s first year in 2010 consisted of an informal group of approximately 30 gamers from UT who showed up to compete in StarCraft II. Today it encompasses more than 65,000 members, with 220 chapters at more than 1200 universities.

“If we were to look at Tespa’s size now and compare it to a Greek organization, we’d be in the top 10 in the world for number of chapters,” Tyler Rosen said. “When Adam and I founded Tespa, we had this dream of elevating gaming to the same levels as traditional sports on campus. Last year, we had more tournaments than ever before.”

Georgia State University statements say the university sees esports as a way for its students to not only compete, but build skills and provide opportunities to learn concepts in broadcasting, production, coaching, student management, game development and marketing.

Blizzard Entertainment

The University of Texas at Arlington won Heroes of the Dorm 2017.

“The skills developed by eSports-interested students are the very skills most needed for success in the 21st century economy, including collaborative soft skills and computer coding,” said David Cheshier, director of the Georgia State Creative Media Industries Institute, in a written statement. “We see this initiative as building essential links to emerging creative careers in animation, 3D and immersive world creation, and other media industries.”

More than 90 million viewers watched esports finals in 2016, the university said.

“Esports are both the most rapidly growing field of sports and also one of the best ways to get students interested in technology,” said Andrew Greenberg, president of the Georgia Game Developers Association. GGDA sponsors the new Georgia league.

“Georgia State has become one of the first schools to recognize the link between eSports and academic achievement. We are delighted both with its role as one of the Georgia Esports League’s inaugural members and the opportunities it is providing its students.”

 Blizzard

Tyler Rosen

Tyler Rosen said when the company first got started–even when its Heroes of the Dorm tournament was first broadcast on ESPN–colleges were hesitant.

“At first, a lot of the universities ignored their teams,” he said. “But what we saw hosting that tournament year over year was that universities were supporting their teams: celebrating on social media, giving them facilities they needed. Arizona State University [winners the 2016 Heroes of the Dorm competition] brought them back to campus, paraded them at a baseball game, and gave them full housing scholarships. That’s a really great trend that we’ve seen growing.”

Registration for upcoming Tespa tournaments begins today.

“We are pleased with the results at Simkar Gold, particularly given that our four holes intercepted multiple mineralized zones down to a depth of around 600 metres, including a few sections with high gold grades,” said Jean-Marc Lacoste, President and Chief Executive Officer of Monarques. “Clearly, the Simkar Gold property has good gold potential that we will continue to test during our next phase of work. Our objective is to increase the resources on our gold properties around the Beacon mill with a view to eventually producing at full capacity.”

Sampling normally consisted of sawing the core into two equal halves along its main axis and shipping one of the halves to the ALS Minerals laboratory in Val-d’Or for assaying. The samples are crushed, pulverized and assayed by fire assay with atomic absorption finish. Results exceeding 3.0 g/t are re-assayed using the gravity method, and samples containing gold grains are assayed using the metallic sieve method. Monarques uses a comprehensive QA/QC protocol, including the insertion of standards, blanks and duplicates.
