Cabral Gold Identifies a New Mineralized Structure at Indio Target and Provides Tracaja Drill Update, Cuiu Cuiu District, Brazil

Wednesday, January 20, 2021 - 1:00pm

Reconnaissance surface sampling at the Indio target returned gold values from quartz-sulphide float material up to 137.8 g/t gold.

Key Points: 
  • Reconnaissance surface sampling at the Indio target returned gold values from quartz-sulphide float material up to 137.8 g/t gold.
  • A sample taken slightly to the south of a previous sampling site returned 137.8 g/t gold (Figure 2).
  • Reconnaissance drilling at Indio with an initial six holes targeting the historic workings, will commence within the next few days.
  • Tracaja is located 1.8km NNE of the Medusa target (Figure 1) and has never been drill tested.

Commander Identifies Gold Zone at Sabin Property, Ontario

Friday, January 15, 2021 - 7:12pm

The Quarry Showing is a new occurrence not previously sampled by Commander and opens the potential for intrusion-hosted orogenic gold mineralization within the large Patterson Lake Stock.

Key Points: 
  • The Quarry Showing is a new occurrence not previously sampled by Commander and opens the potential for intrusion-hosted orogenic gold mineralization within the large Patterson Lake Stock.
  • (Figure 1)
    The Quarry showing was a documented gold occurrence with limited historical work comprising surface sampling and 2 short, small-diameter (winkie) prospecting holes.
  • Historical sampling, unverified by Commander, includes a short hole grading 0.50 g/t gold over 10 m and local grab samples up to 4.1 g/t gold.
  • Furthermore, the gold zone at the Quarry Showing is significant and opens a large area for exploration that has not been previously explored.

New Found Intercepts 18.1 g/t Au over 6.5m including 38.7 g/t Over 2.95m in New "Sunday Zone" Discovery in the Appleton Fault Hanging Wall, 2 km North of Keats Zone

Thursday, January 14, 2021 - 1:00pm

Assays are uncut, and calculated intervals are reported over a minimum length of 2 meters using a lower cutoff of 1.0 g/t Au.

Key Points: 
  • Assays are uncut, and calculated intervals are reported over a minimum length of 2 meters using a lower cutoff of 1.0 g/t Au.
  • Any samples that returned over-limit values (>100 g/t silver) were analyzed with the Ag-OG62 procedure (Ag by HF-HNO3 -HClO4 digestion with HCl leach, ICP-AES or AAS finish).
  • Standards and blanks are included with every 20 samples for Quality Assurance/Quality Control purposes by the Company as well as the lab.
  • New Found holds a 100% interest in the Queensway Project, located 15 km west of Gander, Newfoundland, and just 18 km from Gander International Airport.

Benz Mining: Electromagnetics Identify New Conductive Trend in Footwall of Eastmain Mine

Wednesday, January 13, 2021 - 2:25pm

Include reference to measures taken to ensure sample representivity and the appropriate calibration of any measurement tools or systems used.

Key Points: 
  • Include reference to measures taken to ensure sample representivity and the appropriate calibration of any measurement tools or systems used.
  • In other cases more explanation may be required, such as where there is coarse gold that has inherent sampling problems.
  • A 109.03 line km fixed loop survey was commissioned by Benz Mining to Abitibi Geophysics at the Company's Eastmain Property in Quebec.
  • Benz Mining Corp conducted a 109 line km Fixed Loop Time-Domain Electromagnetics survey on the Eastmain Property.

The Promise of Microsampling in Supporting Remote Clinical Trials, Upcoming Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

Wednesday, January 13, 2021 - 1:30pm

Microsampling techniques that generate a dried sample are believed to be a good alternative for analytes that are unstable in blood or plasma.

Key Points: 
  • Microsampling techniques that generate a dried sample are believed to be a good alternative for analytes that are unstable in blood or plasma.
  • Continuous research into the use of microsampling techniques and the development of new microsampling devices may lead to a new era of blood sampling.
  • For example, the Tasso OnDemand microsampler is claimed to be the next step in easy (self-performed) microsampling.

Spearmint Begins the Airborne Magnetic Survey Portion of the Phase I Work Program on the Perron-East Gold Project in Quebec

Wednesday, December 23, 2020 - 8:01am

The phase I work program will include a complete compilation and evaluation of historical data, a high-resolution magnetic survey, and an extensive sampling program.

Key Points: 
  • The phase I work program will include a complete compilation and evaluation of historical data, a high-resolution magnetic survey, and an extensive sampling program.
  • The sampling portion of the phase I work program has already been completed and results are expected back shortly.
  • The goal of this initial phase I work program is the identification of the highest priority drill-hole targets.
  • Management anticipates the results from the sampling portion of the phase I work program to be back shortly.

Eurofins Launches COVID-19 PCR Tests With At-Home Self-Sampling Options in Europe and Donates Sequencing Capacity to Identify VUI-2020-12/01 Strain Reported to Spread Faster in the UK

Tuesday, December 22, 2020 - 8:46pm

To make patient sampling easier by non-healthcare professionals and especially for testing children, Eurofins validated a sampling method based on gargling with a sterile solution.

Key Points: 
  • To make patient sampling easier by non-healthcare professionals and especially for testing children, Eurofins validated a sampling method based on gargling with a sterile solution.
  • At-home gargling self-sampling offers the advantage of a simple non-invasive sampling method, allowing patients to be tested without any constraint of medical sampling capacity.
  • These tests will also detect VUI2020-12/01 virus variants recently reported to be spreading quickly in the UK.
  • Eurofins Genomics also has significant sequencing capacity to identify this or other variants of the virus.

Fewer Canadians self-report drinking and driving over the legal limit, but risk-taking remains a concern even with lower traffic volumes

Thursday, December 17, 2020 - 1:00pm

The Road Safety Monitor (RSM) is an annual public opinion poll conducted by TIRF and co-sponsored by Beer Canada and Desjardins .

Key Points: 
  • The Road Safety Monitor (RSM) is an annual public opinion poll conducted by TIRF and co-sponsored by Beer Canada and Desjardins .
  • But, while fewer Canadians self-report this behaviour in 2020, it remains to be seen whether this decrease is a result of lower traffic volumes due to COVID-19 or whether this signals the beginning of an overall downward trend in drinking and driving.
  • Of concern, the percentage of drivers admitting this remains among the highest reported rates since 2004.
  • Still, it remains a concern that many of those who previously reported drinking and driving did not change their behaviour.
