$NSM.ca Northern Sphere Mining Corp. stakes additional ground next to copper-zinc-manganese anomalies as staking rush occurs along its Black Diamond Property, Arizona $FCX $BHP

Posted by Er at 8:31 AM on Tuesday, February 6th, 2018

 

 

  • Increased land position around recently delineated Copper, Zinc and Manganese anomolies
  • BHP Billiton is currently staking along NSM’s western claim boundary
  • Target optimization, using Artificial Intelligence (AI) by incorporating Digital Geologic Modelling, Hyper-Spectral Imaging, Geophysical Survey re-inversion, and Geochemical survey data into prospect generating algorithms.

Northern Sphere Mining Corp. (CSE: NSM) (OTCQB: NSMCF) ‎ (“Northern Sphere” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that is has increased its land position by an additional 50 claims staked in areas where distinct copper, zinc, and manganese anomalies continue to be delineated. The Company is continuing to acquire ground at an accelerated rate and is encouraged by BHP Billiton’s current staking activity along the Company’s western claim boundary.

In addition to claim staking, Northern Sphere continues to execute an intensive Geochemical Survey over its now expanded 4,800-acre Black Diamond Property, located 12 km (8 miles) north-east of Freeport McMoRan’s Open Pit Copper Operations. The Geochemical Survey recovers systematic soil samples on a 50-metre spaced grid. Each sample was submitted to ALS Laboratories for a 51 Element Aqua-Regia digestion and an ICP-MS finish.

The survey currently comprises of more than 800 samples from three prospective areas encompassing approximately 500 acres which include: (i) the Richmond Basin, site of historic underground silver mines, (ii) Buckeye South, site of recent delineated soil anomalies containing copper-zinc-manganese and is in close proximity to former zinc and manganese underground mines, and (iii) Black Copper where previous outcrop sampling yielded copper values up to 7% (see Trueclaim Exploration Inc. (TSXV: TRM) press release of September 29, 2011).

Initial results from the first 250 geochemical samples taken in the Richmond Basin area yielded anomalous copper values of 1,040 parts per million (ppm), 522 ppm, and 340 ppm along with silver values up to 344 grams per tonne (g/t) (see the Company’s prior press release of November 11, 2017).

A second soil survey area consisting of 224 samples collected from the Buckeye South area returned exceptional results having both anomalous copper values of greater than 80 ppm and zinc values of 7,660 ppm, 4,820 ppm, and 4,770 ppm. Figure 2 depicts some of these anomalous trends.

More recent geochemical soil sampling from the Black Copper area yielded excellent results. Forty-six percent of the 135 samples collected at this location have copper results that exceed 100 ppm (or 100 g/t). Notable copper values analyzed from this location resulted in 634 ppm, 503 ppm and 496 ppm.

Manganese levels indicated from the soil survey were anomalous with all sample results exceeding 100 ppm. Soils samples collected from the Black Copper area all had manganese levels exceeding 200 ppm (72 exceeded 1,000 ppm or 0.1%). Manganese, which is often found in association with other notable metals such as lead, silver, zinc, copper and vanadium has been mined in the Globe-Miami, Arizona area. Although considered a “strategic mineral” in the United States, Manganese is predominantly sourced outside the US, primarily from China and South Africa.

Northern Sphere has increased its land position by 25% in recent weeks and will continue to undertake Geochemical soil sampling along identified copper and zinc trends. Ongoing geophysical surveying and diamond drilling on nearby claims by BHP Billiton has further invigorated Northern Sphere’s exploration activities.

Steve Gray, Vice President of Northern Sphere, states “Recent claim staking and increased exploration activities near our western claim boundaries by “heavy hitters” has added some urgency for Northern Sphere to continue to add claim ground. The timing of the staking rush appears to correlate well with some of our recent results and we have noticed increased exploration activities in the area.”

Mr. Gray adds “During my most recent visit to the site, I was pleased to substantiate previous mapping of andesite porphyry bodies in addition to identifying previously undocumented ones. These porphyries hold important clues and should assist Northern Sphere with potentially detecting orebodies similar in nature to Freeport McMoRan’s porphyry copper mines located within view of our claims.”

Targeting Optimization

In efforts to expediate mineral targeting, Northern Sphere has contracted external technical services to assist with target optimization, using Artificial Intelligence (AI) by incorporating Digital Geologic Modelling, Hyper-Spectral Imaging, Geophysical Survey re-inversion, and Geochemical survey data into prospect generating algorithms. A summary of the work is expected to be available for release during February 2018.

Quality Control

Northern Sphere’s quality control and assurance program includes the use of an independent certified lab, ALS Laboratories (“ALS”) of Tucson, Arizona. All ALS geochemical hub laboratories are accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2005 for specific analytical procedures. The ALS quality program includes quality control steps through sample preparation and analysis, inter-laboratory test programs, and regular internal audits.

    • Soil sample analytical results from the 2017 fall program on the Gold Drop Property
    • Conducted in the  Southwest Zone between the COD gold showing and the COD North gold showing and north of the gold bearing Everest vein
    • A total of 334 soil samples were collected along 31 soil lines. These lines were spaced 25m apart

 

Gold Drop Property, Greenwood British Columbia

Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire)GGX Gold Corp. (TSXV: GGX) (the “Company” or “GGX”) is pleased to announce the receipt of soil sample analytical results from the 2017 fall program on the Gold Drop Property, located in southern British Columbia. The soil sampling geochemical program was conducted in the Gold Drop Southwest Zone between the COD gold showing and the COD North gold showing and north of the gold bearing Everest vein. The program identified gold soil anomalies including high values of 0.061, 0.073 and 0.088 ppm gold.

A total of 334 soil samples were collected during the program and submitted to ALS Minerals in North Vancouver for gold and multi-element analysis. The samples were screened to 180 micron. Gold analysis was by aqua regia extraction with ICP-MS finish. Multi-element analysis was by aqua regia extraction and ICP-MS and ICP-AES. Soil samples were collected along 31 soil lines. These lines were spaced 25m apart with a 25m sample interval. The soil lines were of varying lengths but on average 250m long.

 

The soil sampling program identified several soil gold anomalies in the Southwest Zone, including numerous samples exceeding 0.01 ppm Au (including high values of 0.061, 0.073 and 0.088 ppm Au). The most distinct anomaly or anomalies is in the COD North area, where anomalous values are concentrated between two historical workings. The soil sampling program extended the target area for at least 600 meters northeast of the area of 2017 drilling and trenching. The Company is planning follow up work in this area in 2018 including a trenching program. The program also identified other gold anomalies near the new COD adit and northeast of the COD trenches.

 

The soil sampling program in the Gold Drop Southwest Zone helped identify a new vein exposure in a small, 2 meter deep historic adit 175 meters north of the C.O.D. trench. The adit is driven on a North-south striking quartz vein that is on strike with the C.O.D. Vein, and appears to be of the same style as the Detonia/Jewel quartz vein. Another vein exposure north of the trench was also located by hand pitting on local quartz float. Bedrock quartz samples from the small hand pit material returned values of 4.97 g/t Au and 30.7 g/t Ag. Samples of boulder material found outside of the small adit returned values of 1.28 g/t Au and 6.97 g/t Ag. (News Release of Nov 8, 2017).

AMERICAN CREEK REPORTS ON TREATY CREEK – COPPER BELLE HOLE CB-17-24 WHICH INTERSECTED 115.5 M OF 1.31 G/T GOLD INCLUDING 39 M OF 2.38 G/T GOLD $SEA $SA $SKE.ca $TUD.ca $PVG

Posted by Er at 9:01 AM on Thursday, December 14th, 2017

  • 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.

  • 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.

$GLI.ca Glacier Lake Acquires Silver Star Property $GTT.ca $JAX.ca

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.

The technical content of this news release has been reviewed and approved by R. Tim Henneberry, P.Geo., a member of the Glacier Lake Advisory Board and a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects.

PyroGenesis $PYR.ca Signs Non-Disclosure Agreement with Second Global Aircraft Engine Manufacturer $DDD $SSYS $ PRLB

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 8:43 AM on Monday, December 4th, 2017

Pyr header 1

  • Signed a non-disclosure agreement with a second global aircraft engine manufacturer.
  • Name of the Client has been withheld and will remain confidential for competitive reasons
  • “We are very happy to have signed an NDA with a second global aircraft engine manufacturer in less than a month, and we look forward to developing a more substantive relationship with them,” said P. Peter Pascali, President and CEO of PyroGenesis.

MONTREAL, Quebec, Dec. 04, 2017 — PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (http://pyrogenesis.com) (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 signed a non-disclosure agreement (“NDA”) with a second global aircraft engine manufacturer. The name of the Client has been withheld and will remain confidential for competitive reasons.

“We are very happy to have signed an NDA with a second global aircraft engine manufacturer in less than a month, and we look forward to developing a more substantive relationship with them,” said P. Peter Pascali, President and CEO of PyroGenesis. “I must once again caution readers not to draw any premature conclusions from this announcement. Though, once again, it does signal an interest in our capabilities, and yes, that interest does come from a very discerning, demanding, and sophisticated party, we are still at the very preliminary stages and there is no guarantee that anything of any commercial value will materialize from these efforts. We feel that these recently concluded NDAs are material in the sense that they confirm both our strategy to become a powder producer to the additive manufacturing industry, as well as our premise that there is a significant demand within the additive manufacturing industry for our products.”

PyroGenesis is the inventor of Plasma Atomization – a plasma-based process that produces small, spherical, metal powders for the Additive Manufacturing (“AM”) industry, particularly 3D printing, and which has become the gold standard.

The Corporation recently announced the successful completion of the ramp-up of its first (1st) plasma atomization system since announcing, in 2015, that it would become a supplier of powders to the AM industry. During ramp-up, the Corporation not only received several sample purchase orders, but also developed new Intellectual Property which effectively allows the manufacture of very narrow particle size distributions, at higher production rates, with little-to-no waste. The Corporation feels that this breakthrough could be even more game changing than its original Plasma Atomization patent.
