FOREX INVESTORS  PRESS RELEASE  MOUNTAIN HIGH ACQUISITIONS CORP (MYHI) announces that together with D9 Manufacturing, Inc. it is launching a pilot project aimed at proving a turnkey infrastructure model MYHI intends to roll out in highly promising cannabis markets such as California, Washington and Arizona.  The objective is to help licensed cannabis growers overcome the key business challenge of financing steep startup infrastructure costs.
To initiate the project, MYHI has acquired two state-of-the-art intermodal containers engineered and designed specifically for growing cannabis.  The opportunity to acquire the grow containers was presented to MYHI by D9 Manufacturing, Inc., an Arizona based company that offers a wide variety of engineering, manufacturing and consulting services to the cannabis sector.  On May 30, MYHI announced the engagement of D9 to assist in the identification, acquisition and development of infrastructure opportunities in the cannabis market.

“We are very enthusiastic about pursuing this opportunity, and appreciate what D9 has brought to the table so quickly. The solutions we intend to provide to the cannabis industry solve real problems faced by licensed growers and producers.  Having a license is not a guarantee of success.  A grower needs infrastructure and equipment that maximizes the quantity and quality of their production—and all of that can be expensive,” said MYHI CEO Alan Smith.

“That’s where we come in.  By providing swift access to affordable turnkey solutions not only do we greatly reduce setup time and costs and help growers get growing, we also help them to minimize risk and optimize their business.”




MOUNTAIN HIGH ACQUISITIONS

 

As a part of this initial pilot, MYHI will lease its first two containers to D9 for use in licensed grow operations in Arizona and California.  Grow operations in the containers are expected to begin within 30 days.  Initial harvests are anticipated to occur 90 days later.

This particular pilot project will allow the company to test both the revenue model—acquiring and leasing infrastructure solutions to licensed growers—and the equipment itself.  In this case the equipment being leased out consists of intermodal containers that can be geared for cultivation or for extraction depending upon how the container is built out.

“This pilot is just the beginning,” said Ferrel Raskin, CEO of D9 Manufacturing, Inc. “We have identified further opportunities for MYHI and D9 to pursue once this revenue model has been vetted and fine-tuned. The reality is that the cannabis industry has now matured enough so that we can identify common problems and challenges and, in turn, provide easier access to meaningful solutions.  We’re excited to be working with a partner like MYHI to ensure that these solutions are backed by sound business expertise and the ability to raise the capital required.”

(CSE:OWM) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce the start of a second phase exploration program on the Company’s Rico Litio lithium property located in the State of California Baja Norte, Mexico. Logistical preparations are underway with field crews on the property within three weeks and concluding with a 4000 metre (13,000 foot) drill program to be completed by the end of June 2017.

The second phase program will consist of 80 kilometres (50 miles) of surveyed grid lines in the northern portion of the property in preparation to complete a time domain electromagnetic survey. This survey will help to identify sediment formations with good permeability and porosity that may contain lithium brines. In addition, a gravity survey will be conducted over the same grid lines to identify the depths of the closed basin as well as structural features and young volcanic rocks that may contribute to the formation of the lithium brine. Historically these geophysical surveys have worked extremely well in identifying structural targets in preparation for drilling.

OWM Announces Second Phase

Coincident with the geophysical programs, an additional 500 geochemical samples will be taken to further delineate anomalous lithium.

The second phase also includes, a four thousand meter (13,000 feet) drill program to test several of the high priority targets that have coincidental anomalies that may contain brine and traps created by active faults.

A third phase program will include a pump test work program done on sections of the drill holes to test and determine the aquifer capacity; draw down flow rates, and concentrations of Lithium and potassium.

As previously reported on March 10, 2017 the Company is acquiring up to a 90% interest in the Rico Litio Property. The property covers a large closed basin (or salar) that is 291 square miles or 75,410 hectares. The Company who is the operator, will contract the exploration program to Jehcorp Inc., a private company owned by John Hiner who has over 45 years’ mineral exploration experience, including lithium and potassium properties in North and South America. A group led by John Hiner also identified the Rico Litio Property.

Doug Fulcher, President and CEO of One World commented:

“We are very pleased to moving quickly on to the next phase of work on the Rico Litio Lithium Property after such a successful first phase work program.  As well we are very fortunate to have a professional such as John Hiner coordinating and overseeing the future development of this project. His experience and knowledge of lithium and lithium projects in the Americas is so important as we further explore and advance the Rico Litio Property. The Company’s significant second phase exploration program that will be underway before the end of March 2017 and continue over the next 3 months will be highlighted by the drilling of several of the targets before the end of June 2017.”

ABOUT ONE WORLD MINERALS INC.

One World Minerals Inc. announced on March 10, 2017 that it had entered into a binding letter agreement to acquire up to a 90% interest in the Rico Litio Property in Mexico (the “Property“).

The Property covers 291 square miles or 75,410 hectares over a closed basin where surface and auger samples were taken over a distance of 74 miles (120 Kilometers). The sampling work program was conducted by Lithium Investments Ltd. and returned assay results between 53 to 188 parts per million lithium in the northern part of the Property. In the southern part of the Property, samples ranged from 15 and 82 parts per million lithium, with an average value of 74 ppm lithium from 24 samples across 74 miles. It is important to note the samples were taken from surface salts and shallow auger holes and not from brines that may occur at depth.

The basin also has geological attributes to develop lithium brines, including recent tectonic and volcanic activity; many hot springs; young rhyolitic volcanic lavas; high heat flows within the region; and ash flow tuffs surrounding and within the basin.

The Property is located in the state Baja California Norte, Mexico. Ready access to the Property includes paved roads and dirt roads within the basin. There is paved access to the USA, which is 100 miles to the north. The Property is only 21 miles (35 kilometers) from San Felipe which is a well-established service center that can provide housing and mine personnel. Power is available from major power lines that cross the Property near the north end, as well as interconnected power lines from the US via Mexicali to San Felipe.

Asante Gold Announces Drill Program Planned On New Targets Keyhole Gold Option Ghana

Asante Gold Announces Drill Program Planned On New Targets Keyhole Gold Option Ghana

Asante Gold Announces Drill Program Planned On New Targets Keyhole Gold Option Ghana

Vancouver, British Columbia – January 18, 2017 – Asante Gold Corporation (CSE:ASE/ FRANKFURT:1A9/OTC:ASGOF) (“Asante” or the “Company”) announces that it has compiled the data from the first of a series of ground geophysical IP (Induced Polarization/Resistivity) surveys to be completed at its Keyhole Gold option property in Ghana.

Seven distinct linear trending IP zones have been outlined which are interpreted to represent areas with increased sulfide mineralization. Sulfide concentrations (relative high IP values) in this structurally favourable Keyhole area are considered to be prime drill targets. The IP map is available at: http://www.asantegold.com/assets/img/memipnr18jan17.jpg  and the Resistivity map at:  http://www.asantegold.com/assets/img/memres-_nr18jan17.jpg .

IP was chosen as the preferred technique to outline high potential drill targets given the strong association of gold with sulfide mineralization in the Asankrangwa gold belt, such as at the Asanko (Obotan) gold mine located 40 km along the belt to the northeast.  The subdued topography, extensive and locally thick alluvial cover, and heavy weathering and laterization mask mineralization from detection by the direct prospecting, trenching and soil geochemical methods which were used by previous explorers in the area.
Drill collars to test the outlined targets for gold mineralization are being selected for a proposed 1200 metre diamond drilling program, planned to commence in early February 2017.
One of the proposed high IP drill targets corresponds with large angular quartz reef float noted in the heavily galamsey disturbed area of the historical MEM showing – where significant gold values were previously reported:  http://www.asantegold.com/assets/img/img_20161210_001315.jpg .

Alexandria Minerals Begins 12,500 Meter Winter Drill Program in Val d’Or

Alexandria Minerals Begins 12,500 Meter Winter Drill Program in Val d’Or

Toronto, Ontario, January 13, 2017 – Alexandria Minerals Corporation (TSX-V: AZX; Frankfurt: A9D) (“AZX” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has begun a 12,500 meter winter drill program at Orenada Zone 4 and Triangle Too on its western Cadillac Break Properties in Val d’Or, Quebec.

Drilling started this week at Zone 4, where the Company has identified multiple, stacked, high-grade gold-quartz veins to a depth of roughly 300 meters. A second rig will begin drilling by early February on the Company’s Triangle Too project located 2 kilometers west of Orenada. These are follow-up programs which will build on important earlier-stage drill programs which were completed in the last half of 2016 at both locations.

Eric Owens, President and CEO of Alexandria, stated, “As a result of our recent $5.1 million over-subscribed financing, Alexandria is well capitalized to ramp up our exploration efforts. Our drill results from both Zone 4 and Triangle Too late last year were encouraging and exciting. We are testing for high grade vein sets in both locations, and are anticipating substantial progress this year. This winter program is our largest drill program since 2014 and will direct our activities for the remainder of the year.”

At Zone 4, recent Alexandria drilling has aided in the development of a new geologic model with focus on multiple, south-dipping, high-grade gold-quartz veins hosted within a broad zone of lower grade gold mineralization. Drill holes from recent Alexandria drilling have intersected up to 17.0 g/t gold, including 131.0 g/t gold over 0.4 m, within a broader zone grading 1.43 g/t gold over 158.5 meters (DDH OAX-15-054, see press release April 30, 2015).

The drill program at Triangle Too is an earlier stage program than that at Zone 4. Alexandria’s first-pass drill program late last year provided the Company’s first look at the subsurface geology on the project. Six of the seven holes, all shallower than 300 meters, intersected the critical geological ingredients that characterize this region, including gold-quartz veins, diorite plugs, and associated shear zones. The new round of drilling will follow-up by testing deeper on the diorite plugs, as well as drilling new, untested geophysical targets.

Additional Assay Results Forthcoming

Alexandria is also pleased to report that Company geologists have discovered unsampled drill core from pre-Alexandria drill holes at Zone 4, holes which have previously yielded assays similar to those in recent Alexandria drill holes. The Company has embarked on a re-logging and re-sampling campaign of all pre-Alexandria drill holes for which core exists.  In addition to providing new assays, this program will also provide greater detail of the high-grade gold veins at Zone 4.

Other Activities

Elsewhere, the Company is also pleased to report that Probe Metals Inc., with whom Alexandria has entered into an Option and Joint Venture Agreement on the eastern portion of Alexandria’s Cadillac Break properties, recently announced it will embark on an aggressive exploration program this year on the property. This program is designed to generate drill targets for testing in Q3 or Q4 of Probe’s fiscal year.

Program design, management, and Quality Control/Quality Assurance are conducted by Alexandria’s exploration group of which Phillippe Berthelot, P.Geo, is the Company’s Qualified Person. Mr. Berthelot has reviewed the results in this press release. The QA/QC program is consistent with National Instrument (“NI”) 43-101 and industry best practices and has been previously addressed in NI 43-101 reports found on the Company’s website or on www.sedar.com

Sarepta Therapeutics Enters into License Agreement with Nationwide Children’s Hospital for Galgt2 Gene Therapy Program

License Agreement  Sarepta Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:SRPT), a commercial stage developer of innovative RNA-targeted therapeutics, today announced it has entered an exclusive license agreement with Nationwide Children’s Hospital, for their Galgt2 gene therapy program developed by researcher Dr. Paul Martin, Ph.D.

“We are taking a multi-front approach in the battle against Duchenne muscular dystrophy,” said Edward Kaye, Sarepta’s chief executive officer. “We find this therapeutic approach to be of particular interest as it has the potential to treat all patients suffering from the disease regardless their mutation.”

The experimental program explores the potential surrogate gene therapy approach to Duchenne muscular dystrophy. As a “surrogate gene therapy approach”, the gene therapy looks to induce genes that make proteins that can perform a similar function as dystrophin, with the goal of producing a muscle cell that can function normally even when dystrophin is absent. It has the potential to be used broadly in several muscular dystrophies.

“We are pleased to have this opportunity to help advance our Galgt2 gene therapy program,” said Dr. Kevin Flanigan, the Principal Investigator leading the clinical trial. “Our goal is to have this program in the clinic during 2017 and begin to evaluate a therapy that has the potential to treat patients of all ages and disease severity.”

Waves Platform and Higher School of Economics Partner for Pro FinTech Startup Program

Business Incubator of Higher School of Economics in Moscow has announced the second year of fintech startup program HSE{Pro}Fintech. Official partners of the fintech section are Waves, the decentralized platform for crowdfunding and community management and National Settlement Depository.

FinTech applications

The Incubator recently launched the second round of its {pro} fintech programme. The program aims to develop projects in the field of financial and blockchain technologies, in particular services for banks and their customers, personal finance management systems, peer-to-peer services, investment systems, payments, transfers and other fintech products.

Whilst Bitcoin has pioneered peer-to-peer online money transfer for almost 8 years now, Blockchain 2.0 technology is still in its relative infancy. A number of decentralised asset exchanges have already been created, including on the Nxt, BitShares, and Counterparty platforms. However, none of these have achieved significant traction, for a number of reasons. Firstly, they were small ecosystems. The assets traded generally had low liquidity and high spreads, and being decentralised platforms there was little accountability and a large proportion of low-quality and fraudulent assets. Regulations were practically non-existent. Additionally, trading was slow due to inherent block-time limitations of the blockchain. This made it almost impossible to attract legitimate new businesses and for these early decentralised exchanges to achieve critical mass.

New solutions

Waves platform is aiming to bring solutions to all of these problems with its Waves’ DEX (decentralised exchange), which has just been released on testnet. It allows any token to be traded directly against any other token – rather than trading two tokens separately against a reference currency, as most other platforms require. Moreover, it features an innovative new system that enables trades to be executed in near real-time via a “Matcher”, enabling high-frequency trading but still be settled on the blockchain for security.

Additionally, fiat gateways are in the process of being created to allow the use of blockchain-based EUR, USD, CNY and other major currency tokens. Gateways, which act as on- and off-ramps between the traditional financial sector and the blockchain, are responsible for remaining compliant in their regulatory jurisdictions. Thus, the Waves DEX allows for speed, security, and compliance.

Talga’s graphite and graphene results Tracy Weslosky: Mark the reason why I’m so excited about talking to you is, and I don’t say this very often to the InvestorIntel audience, but I do believe we have one of the most undervalued stocks currently on the market. We have a lot of questions to talk to you about with both graphite and graphene today. Are you ready?

Mark Thompson: Go for it.

Talga’s graphite and graphene results 

Tracy Weslosky: Okay. First of all I’d like to start by doing something I never do, which is to actually read a quote that I read in your shareholders letter from your Chairman, Keith Coughlan. He wrote in a recently published letter, “The Company has made great strides toward our ultimate goal of becoming a global scale producer of graphite and graphene. As a result we are strategically placed to play a growing role in the emerging trend towards low-emission energy production and storage via devices such as batteries and fuel cells, conductive coatings and a host of technology applications that require advanced materials”. I would love it if you would just start by reintroducing Talga to our audience and understand why that’s not just a visionary statement, but that’s really what Talga is trying and is achieving.

Mark Thompson: Yeah. At the root of that is that the world has a lot of problems. It’s got a lot of resource pressure and a lot of pollution pressure and it’s trying to fix those problems. One of the ways around that is to positively change energy storage and energy mobility and energy generation. Graphite being a crystalline form of carbon is at the heart of a lot of those technologies and we own the world’s highest grade resource of graphite under (inaudible) and NI 43 conditions. We’re taking advantage of that and we’re trying to work out strategically how to use that resource to the betterment of all these sorts of products that people read about in the media, but then don’t enter into their lives for a little while, but similar to plastics and carbon fiber before it some of these companies go on to become global leaders. That’s where Talga is heading.

Tracy Weslosky: I think something that I would love for you to explain to our audience is how you really differentiate yourself. Your competitive advantage is you’re going after some very unique niches – for instance an $11 billion dollar plus corrosion protection sector….can you talk about these different sectors that you’re targeting please?

Mark Thompson: So we were quite an early mover into the graphite space and what we found is that there’s an industry that’s 40 times bigger than the entire global graphite market and that’s the total volume of material used for paints and coatings. Graphene, one of the largest volume applications with really good margins and really good speed to market in its development is in the coating sector. We’ve got a Chief Technology Officer, Dr. Siva Bohm who has over 25 patents and over 100 technical papers in his 25-year career. He’s a coating specialist. He’s now, as our CTO, basically constructing products made of our graphene to license and look for revenues from royalties and production obviously that feeds into our raw materials. We see the coating as a, I guess, a media darling compared to a roll up TV screens and things like electric planes, but it’s actually a very good solid move because it only involves replacing encumbered materials like zinc and zircon rather than creating entirely new technologies. That’s just one part of the four main sectors we focus on.

Tracy Weslosky: And of course, something that is sizzling to our audience is the battery storage market. Can you tell us what your involvement is in that particular sector?
