PAX 3

Representing a milestone evolution for PAX’s flagship product, PAX 3 is a dual-use vaporizer for loose-leaf and concentrate materials. PAX 3 offers rapid selection between three different, easily changed ovens: a full-size oven, a half-pack oven and a new concentrate oven. PAX 3’s new heating system provides double the power of PAX 2, delivering a smooth, consistent vapor in as little as 15 seconds, with instant subsequent vapor delivery. Also, new to PAX 3, haptic feedback indicates when vapor is ready, when the device enters standby mode, and when it’s turned off. This third generation device retains distinctive features of the category defining PAX devices, including an internal accelerometer for energy and material saving features, intuitive gestural control, proprietary lip sensing technology for further flavor optimization, and a full color LED interface to indicate temperature, battery life and more.

PAX 3 is compatible with the PAX Vapor app, enabling consumers to further customize their device. Additional app features available for PAX 3 include dynamic modes: predesigned vapor experiences for distinct occasions that optimize temperature settings, vapor production and LED brightness. PAX 3 is designed with a mirror polished anodized aluminum shell and comes in Black, Gold, Silver and limited edition Rose Gold.

PAX 3 is meticulously engineered with the highest quality materials and components and comes with a 10 year warranty with ongoing customer support and service.

  • Announced that on November 28, 2016 its neighbor to the west, Nemaska Lithium Inc. (T-NMX) provided details on its newly discovered Doris zone on its Whabouchi lithium project
  • Doris zone contains 5 interconnected dykes and has now been confirmed on 420m of lateral extension and up to a maximum depth of 440m where it joins the main dyke

Vancouver, BC / November 30, 2016 – Durango Resources Inc. (TSX.V-DGO), (the “Company” or “Durango”) announces that on November 28, 2016 its neighbor to the west, Nemaska Lithium Inc. (T-NMX) provided details on its newly discovered Doris zone on its Whabouchi lithium project.

As stated in Nemaska Lithium’s news release dated November 28, “…the Doris zone contains 5 interconnected dykes and has now been confirmed on 420m of lateral extension and up to a maximum depth of 440m where it joins the main dyke. The Doris zone starts in the southwest and is open along strike to the northeast. Doris appears to run parallel to main zone which extends for 1.2km to the northeast.” (1)

Durango’s 100%-owned NMX East ground adjoins the eastern boundary of the Whabouchi property, where the Doris zone remains open, and lies less than 1.5km from the proposed Whabouchi pit. Durango’s geological team identified a pegmatite intrusion at NMX East running parallel to Nemaska Lithium’s main zone which returned anomalous lithium and rubidium values. (2)

The Company has renewed the strategically located NMX East claims for an additional two years and intends to begin stripping and/or drilling of the pegmatite targets in the new year to determine the full extent of the intrusive bodies. Durango met with drilling contractors at the Quebec Mines convention in Quebec City last week, as announced on November 21, 2016, and will announce further details as they become available.

A map of Durango’s NMX East property in relation to the Whabouchi lithium deposit is available on the Durango Resources website:

http://www.durangoresourcesinc.com/projects/nmx-east-quebec/

Marcy Kiesman, CEO of Durango stated, “LCT pegmatite intrusions are known to occur in groups spanning tens of square kilometres. Considering the proximity of the NMX East lithium-bearing pegmatite intrusions to the Whabouchi deposit, we see a great amount of potential for discovery on our ground.”

The technical contents of this release were approved by Mr. Case Lewis, P.Geo., a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. The property has not yet been the subject of a National Instrument 43-101 report.

Explor Intersects 2.187% Copper Over 9.66 Meters on the Chester Copper Property $EXS.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 8:38 AM on Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

Exs logo

  • Intersects 2.187% Copper Over 9.66 Meters
  • Chester Property is known to contain both a copper deposit and a VMS deposit
  • Copper deposit has an Open Pit resource with Measured & Indicated resource of 1,400,000 tonnes grading 1.38% Cu, 0.06% Zn & 3.5 g/t Ag and an inferred resource of 2,089,000 tonnes grading 1.26% Cu

ROUYN-NORANDA, QUEBEC–(Nov. 30, 2016) – Explor Resources Inc. (“Explor” or the “Corporation“) (TSX VENTURE:EXS) (OTCQX:EXSFF) (FRANKFURT:E1H1) (BERLIN:E1H1) is pleased to announce the completion of 12 Diamond Drill Holes for a total of 2,027 meters on the Chester Copper Property. The Chester Copper property is located in the Northumberland County, 70 km southwest of Bathurst, New Brunswick and 50 km west-northwest of Miramichi, New Brunswick, within the Bathurst Mining Camp. This area has an extensive history in base metal production from VMS deposits.

There has been very little exploration work in this area of the Bathurst Mining Camp (BMC) since the initial exploration more than 60 years ago. Of significance also is the fact that three (3) age date studies of the rock in the area since 2005 have indicated an age of 469+/- 0.3 ma. All of the main largest VMS deposits in the BMC (including BMS #12 and #6, the Caribou Deposit (currently being developed by Travalli) and the past producing Heath Steele Mines, are associated with this age date for the footwall felsic rocks. That new data in 2007 places Explor’s Chester deposit is in the same time frame as the Brunswick Mining No. 12 and No. 6 deposits located in the BMC.

New Brunswick is the home of the No 12 massive sulphide deposit (The Brunswick Deposit) which was in continuous production from 1964 to its closure in March of 2013 (to Feb 2013, 135,903,168 tonnes milled at 3.44 % Pb, 8.74 % Zn, 0.37 % Cu and 102 g/t Ag). The Brunswick deposits (No 6 and No 12) are situated in the Nepisiguit Falls Group of rocks in the Lower Tetagouche group of the BMC. There are 46 known VMS deposits in the BMC.

The property is located in the southern-most part of the Bathurst Mining Camp and consist of 174 Mineral Claim Units within a total of five (5) Mineral Claims (1571, 2428, 6003, 6005 and 7045) comprising approximately 3,828 hectares as shown on the attached map.

A total of 4 diamond drill holes were drilled on claim 1571. The first three diamond drill holes that were drilled were fan holes from the same location. This successfully tested the extension of the copper stringer zone for a distance of 190 meters west of previous drilling. The fourth drill hole was located approximately 100 meters west (and 38 meters south) of the first three drill holes, confirming the continuity of the mineralization to the west and adding 100 meters of strike length to the known deposit. It intersected the target horizon and favorable geology from 94 meters to 234.6 meters.

Further to the west the copper deposit goes down dip and onto claim 6003. At about 1,100 meters west of the first drill hole, drill hole 6003-16-012 was drilled at a vertical dip. It eventually went to a depth of 600 meters and intersected previously unknown mineralization near surface (18 meters) and also extending the deep main Chester Stringer zone an additional 650 meters westward than any previous reliable drilling (i.e. casing in place and core in government storage). It also confirms the existence of the alteration zone and the host stratigraphic horizon to a depth not previously known or expected. The chloritized favorable horizon extends from a depth of 472.5 meters to 561 meters with low grade copper mineralization documented from 519 meters to 543 meters.

In the north part of claim 6003, an untested soil geochemical anomaly was tested. Copper mineralization was discovered as pyrrhotite and chalcopyrite veinlets in felsic volcanic associated with the soil anomaly. Copper mineralization was also discovered in this area in 2014 and a soil survey on claim 7045 to the west have unexplained copper and lead anomalies which may be associated with previously mentioned soil anomaly and this horizon.

To the south on Claim 6005, two drill holes were put down to test a soil anomaly apparently associated with a historical drill hole, dating to about the 1956 to 1958 era, with a reported value of more than 2% copper. No indication of any mineralization was discovered in the two drill holes.

Preliminary results are shown below for Hole # 1571-16-001:

Summary of results from Drill hole 1571-16-001:
From (m): To (m): Length: (m) Au (ppb) Ag (ppm) Cu % Zn (ppm) Pb (ppm)

Pacific North West Capital Corp. Expands The Lithium Two Project, Southeast Manitoba $PFN.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 11:12 AM on Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Hublogo1 copy

  • Additional claim added to the Lithium Two Project-Surface samples from the Eagle Pegmatite yielded assays up to 3.04% Li2O
  • Surface samples from the FD No. 5 Pegmatite yielded assays up to 2.08% Li2O
  •  Follow-up surface sampling ongoing
  •  Drilling planned for early 2017

November 29th, 2016 / Vancouver, British Columbia – Pacific North West Capital Corp. (“PFN” the “Company”) (TSXV: PFN; OTCQB: PAWEF; FSE: P7J) is pleased to announce that its 100% owned subsidiary, Lithium Canada Developments has acquired additional ground from Mustang Minerals Corp. (Mustang), increasing the size of the Lithium Two Project.

Following up on the Lithium grades previously released on the Lithium Two Project (News release Nov. 17th, 2016) from surface sampling of the Eagle and F.D. No. 5 Pegmatites, the company decided to enact a clause in their agreement with Mustang and acquire additional ground. This ground has been acquired at no additional cost and the size of the project area has doubled. The company considers the Cat Lake Area to be highly prospective for potentially economic lithium deposits. Numerous pegmatites in the region are Spodumene-Bearing and of the Lithium-Cesium-Tantalum (LCT) type of pregmatites, which are ideal for lithium potential. The Lithium Two Project is located north of Cat Lake, approximately 145 kilometres (90 miles) northeast of Winnipeg, Manitoba (Canada) and 22 kilometres north of the Tanco Mine Site (Figure 1). Geologically, the project is situated in the Cat Lake portion of the Cat Lake – Winnipeg River Pegmatite Field. The Winnipeg River Pegmatite Field hosts the World-Class Tanco Pegmatite.

Two historically known Pegmatites exist on the project area, the Eagle Pegmatite and the F.D. No. 5 Pegmatite. Surface sampling of the Eagle Pegmatite returned assays up to 3.04% Li2O. This pegmatite extends onto the CAT 4 claim to the west. It is the CAT 4 claim that has been acquired from Mustang.

The Eagle Pegmatite has been reported to be exposed at surface as a series of lenticular Spodumene-bearing Pegmatite Dykes (Spodumene is a lithium bearing mineral found in Pegmatite Dykes) over a distance of approximately 823 metres. In 1947, drilling of the Eagle Pegmatite estimated that there was 545,000 tonnes (600 000 tons) of Spodumene with an average content of 1.4% Li2O to a depth of 60 metres (200 feet). This is a historic estimation and not NI 43-101 compliant. The Eagle Pegmatite remains open to depth. Additional surface sampling of the pegmatites is ongoing. Drilling of the Pegmatites is planned for early 2017.

Mining Operations Logistics and Commencement for 2017

  • Originally formed with the objective to develop a Feldspar mine in the Philippines and source other valuable mining properties worldwide
  • In mid-2014, AIM acquired what is considered a rich anthracite coal mining concessions in Peru
  • Developed a very strong relationship with an Indian firm (Prina Energy) to market the coal and is now in the final stages of setting up a joint venture operation headquartered in Dubai UAE DMCC
  • Anticipated that commencing January 2017 all the operations will be underway and shipping of coal is anticipated for March 2017

HENDERSON, NV / November 29, 2016 / AIM Exploration Inc. (OTC: AEXE) $AEXE was originally formed with the objective to develop a Feldspar mine in the Philippines and source other valuable mining properties worldwide. In mid-2014, AIM acquired what is considered a rich anthracite coal mining concessions in Peru.

Through this acquisition, AIM acquired ownership/control over 1,000 hectares of mining concessions located in Peru following an assessment.

By USA geologist/ mining engineer (Mr. Karl Gurr of Gustafson and Associates). The concessions appeared to be rich with anthracite coal and all samples tested indicated a very high quality of anthracite. On one section of the property, there were and continues to be approximately 20 operating mining tunnels that are being operated by artesian miners who reside close by. AIM has continued to allow the artesian miners to operate on their own. However, the company has contracted with virtually every miner to work strictly for AIM. In addition, AIM, intends to further explore and develop the properties. One of the reports the previous owners (Percana) obtained by a qualified Peruvian geologists estimated there are in excess of six hundred million tons of coal within their properties. We must advise, however, this report is not 43-101 compliant and therefore cannot be relied upon for investment purposes. Nonetheless, AIM believes strongly in the report.

AIM has developed a very strong relationship with an Indian firm (Prina Energy) to market the coal and is now in the final stages of setting up a joint venture operation headquartered in Dubai UAE DMCC, a strategic move for long-term growth and profitability for AIM, Prina has strong ties in the UAE not only with high-level long-term buyers but access to appropriate financing which AIM will require for operational working capital.

This joint venture will be completely set up in the very near future and operations will commence.

It is anticipated that commencing January 2017 all the operations will be underway and shipping of coal is anticipated for March 2017.

HPQ PureVap QRR Successfully Produces 99.99+% (4N+) Silicon Metal Using 98.14% SiO2 Feed, R&D Testing Ongoing To Reach Higher Purity Levels $HPQ.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 7:55 AM on Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Hpq large

  • Results from test 19 confirm production of 4N+ purity Silicon Metal (99.99+% Si)
  • High Purity Silicon Metal test results recently produced using the first generation setup of the lab-scale PUREVAP™ QRR, combined with the addition of a purifying agent

MONTREAL, QUEBEC–(Marketwired – Nov. 29, 2016) - HPQ Silicon Resources Inc. (“HPQ”) (TSX VENTURE:HPQ)(FRANKFURT:UGE)(OTC PINK:URAGD) is pleased to inform its shareholders that PyroGenesis Canada Inc (“PyroGenesis”) has just submitted a new stage report(1) pertaining to High Purity Silicon Metal test results recently produced using the first generation setup of the lab-scale PUREVAP™ QRR,combined with the addition of a purifying agent.

ANALYSIS CONFIRMS PRODUCTION OF 4N+ SILICON METAL (99.99+% Si)

Multiple analyses of the material produced during test 19 were completed at the « Centre de Caractérisation Microscopique des Matériaux » (CM2), located at the École Polytechnique de Montréal using a Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) associated with a Wavelength-Dispersive Spectroscopy (WDS).

The results from test 19 confirm production of 4N+ purity Silicon Metal (99.99+% Si). At this stage, the final purity level of the material in less than 100-ppm range (parts per million) has not been determined. Since this test was the last prior to the upgrades of the lab-scale PUREVAP™ QRR, these positive results will be incorporated into the plans for all-future testing in which samples will be routinely analyzed to much lower detection limits. R&D lab testing is still ongoing and the project is on schedule for completion in January 2017.

“We have officially reached the 4N Milestone, and the technical team now can focus on the improvements to follow up the achievement of the 4N+ high grade silicon core. The PUREVAP™ QRR results once again exceeded our expectations at this early stage of development testing. The presence of a high grade core of material and the evidence of zonation in which impurities are forced to the outside is exactly what we were working toward, and this result has come earlier than expected. In addition, production of 99.99+% Si using 98.14% SiO2 feed speaks volumes about the economic opportunities that the PUREVAP™ QRR represents for HPQ-Silicon and its numerous high grade quartz deposits, in our objective of becoming vertically integrated” said Bernard Tourillon, Chairman and CEO of HPQ-Silicon. “Furthermore, testing and process improvements are being made on a continual basis, as our goal of making Solar Grade Silicon gets closer to becoming a reality.”

ANALYTICAL RESULTS INDICATE ZONATION PRODUCTION OF A HIGH GRADE SILICON CORE

More importantly, the analytical data points to directional crystallization of a core of higher purity silicon metal, as well as, zonation of the impurities as observed in other purification processes. This apparent zonation indicates that the PUREVAP™ process has now achieved a physical segregation of residual impurities at lab-scale stage. The groundbreaking importance of this is the initial production of a higher purity core section of the silicon material, which is where the targeted 6N silicon would be expected to accumulate in the future. This core of high purity silicon material would then be extracted and sold as solar grade silicon. The less pure portions, where the impurities have migrated, would then be separated and sold as high value Silicon Metal by-products.

FURTHER CHARACTERIZATION OF IMPURITIES TO FOLLOW

The WDS analytical method provides quantitative analyses of precise spots with a detection threshold of approximately 0.01%, or 100 ppm (weight basis). The results confirm impurity levels to as low the detection limit of 0.01% (< 100 ppm) for almost all the major impurities. This positive result means that going forward material produced from ongoing test work, which will focus on improvements to the purification process and adaptation to the Pilot Plant development, will now be sent for detailed analysis and characterization of the impurities, in less than 100 parts per million (ppm) range, to fully evaluate the effectiveness of the PUREVAP™ QRR.

“We are extremely pleased with the progress to date,” said Pierre Carabin, CTO of PyroGenesis. “We have now reached the detection limits of two analysis methods and confirmed the ability of the process produce silicon metal of at least 99.99+% purity. This confirms that we are truly on to something unique.”

TEST KEY PARAMETERS

The feedstock for experiment #19 was 300 g of a mixture 2.5:1 weight basis of 2-4 mm Quartz lot #A16- 09153 from Ronceveaux and activated carbon #5566 provided by Asbury Carbon. The overall purity of the Quartz is evaluated at 98.14 %.

Table 1 – Impurity levels for the Quartz, the Carbon and the resulting Mixture

Material Quartz Carbon Mixture
#ID A16-09153 5566 2.5:1 m/m
Units (ppm ) (ppm ) (ppm )
Al 265 337 285
Ca 71 2848 865
Fe 6,295 39 4,508
Mg 0 131 37

K 0 229 66
Ti 12 2 9
P 0 215 61
S 0 204 58
W 0 0 0
B 5 3 4

The Quartz and the Carbon were both analyzed using a combination of ICP-AES and ICP-MS by third-party laboratories. The impurity concentrations of the mixtures are a weighted average of the ones of the reagents in respect to their mass ratio (2.5:1). It can be noted that the impurity levels in the resulting mixture are relatively high, especially in iron, which is a difficult element to vaporize.

RESULTS

As shown in Table 2 below, 4 of the 5 different locations analyzed on the sample were of a purity of 4N+ (99.99+ %) with a mean purity of 99.99 %. The main contaminants were Aluminum (Al) and Phosphorus (P) with 0.008 % and 0.002 % respectively in average. Interestingly, the concentrations were below the detection limits for all the other contaminants for all locations.

B <0.01 <0.01 <0.01 <0.01 <0.01 0.000

“These results are significant as the prevailing proposition suggests that the quartz purity level required to make high purity silicon metal is over 99.5%(2)” said P. Peter Pascali, President and CEO of PyroGenesis. “The PUREVAP has proven that to no longer be the case. We have demonstrated that the process can produce high purity silicon metal from significantly lower purity quartz as feedstock. The implications of this are enormous when considering the potential commercial applications of the process. Conceivably, we can now take a cheap and abundant low purity quartz feedstock and transform it into a high value end product.”

FURTHER INFORMATION ON THE TEST

During phase 1 – Proof of concept test, the produced silicon was only collected at the surface of the graphite electrode. Now, not only is silicon produced at the surface of the electrode, but is also accumulated at the bottom of the crucible.

Figure 1 – http://www.marketwire.com/library/20161128-800Photo1078160.jpg

The R&D lab testing is still ongoing and the project is on schedule for a January 2017 completion. By the end of the Process Characterization phase, PyroGenesis expects to have conducted between 40 and 50 laboratory scale experiments. The data collected during the Process Characterization phase will be used for the Pilot Scale design, which is also currently underway.

Testing Methodology:

Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDS), and Wavelength-Dispersive X-Ray Spectroscopy (WDS) analysis were completed at the Centre de Caractérisation Microscopique des Matériaux (CM2), located at the École Polytechnique de Montréal.
