Coniagas Battery Metals Expands Exploration at Graal Project with Promising Results

Coniagas Battery Metals

Coniagas Battery Metals CEO Frank Basa joined Steve Darling from Proactive to announce that the company is actively applying for permits to expand the near-surface mineral resources at the Graal project in Quebec. This expansion aims to further delineate the resource potential and enhance the project's economic viability. The Graal project has confirmed an open-pit deposit model along a 6 km strike length, featuring high-grade nickel and copper with cobalt, platinum, and palladium byproducts. The company plans to conduct additional drilling in the near term, leading to the production of a NI 43-101 resource report. Basa shared that the company is building on the excellent drilling results reported from the MHY and Gravi zones, which confirm shallow, near-surface mineralization. Significant drill intercepts include 28.90 meters of 2.28% CuEq, including 0.73% Nickel, 0.41% Copper, 0.09% Cobalt, 0.04 g/t Platinum and 0.05 g/t Palladium These results reinforce the significant potential of the Graal property to host valuable nickel, copper, and cobalt mineralization. The ongoing and planned exploration activities aim to enhance the resource base and support the project's economic feasibility, positioning Coniagas Battery Metals for future growth and development.

Silver Range Resources Announces Encouraging Results from Cambridge and Sniper Properties in Nevada

Silver Range Resources Ltd

Silver Range Resources CEO Mike Power joined Steve Darling from Proactive to share encouraging exploration results from short exploration programs conducted at the Cambridge Property in Lyon County and the Sniper Property in Esmeralda County, Nevada. At the Cambridge Property, Power reported that reconnaissance underground investigations revealed that exposed stopes in the area of recent excavator trenching were partially backfilled by spoil during excavation. It appears that the upper portions of the mine might be accessible with limited underground rehabilitation. Additionally, mineralization was discovered in a subordinate footwall vein splay, oblique to the main Cambridge Vein. Grab samples from a 15 cm exposure of this vein returned impressive results of 7.61 g/t Au and 52.1 g/t Au. Meanwhile, at the Sniper Property, a short Packsack diamond drill hole in the north wall of a small pit returned 2.30 meters at 2.10 g/t Au and 55.3 g/t Ag from the surface, with mineralization open at depth. The Sniper Property is located on the north flank of Gold Mountain. The area is characterized by ribbon-banded quartz veins containing pyrite, galena, tetrahedrite, and secondary chrysocolla and wulfenite, present in the carapace of a Jurassic intrusion just below the contact with overlying Precambrian Wyman formation metasediments. Initial sampling by Silver Range at the Sniper Property showed high gold and silver grades. Out of 14 samples, seven returned assays greater than 5 g/t Au, and five samples returned assays greater than 20 g/t Au, with a peak value of 121 g/t Au. Silver assays ranged from 0.2 to 1,375 g/t Ag, with three samples assaying greater than 100 g/t Ag. The property appears to have been initially explored with small adits and shafts before the 1980s. Between 1978 and 1983, these were partially covered or obliterated by bulldozer during exploration and high-grading. The Sniper Property is one of many small mines and prospects in the Tokop Mining District, which have produced sporadically or intermittently since 1866. These exploration results underscore the potential for significant mineralization at both the Cambridge and Sniper properties, enhancing Silver Range Resources' prospects for future development and production.

West Red Lake Gold Mines Pours First Gold Bar and Reports High-Grade Gold Results

MarketJar

Disseminated on behalf of West Red Lake Gold Mines Ltd Elevated gold prices could also have a significant impact on gold miners, particularly near-term producers like West Red Lake Gold Mines Ltd. (TSXV:WRLG) (OTCQB:WRLGF) West Red Lake Gold Mines is strategically moving forward to a restart and a targeted timeline for gold production in 2025 at its high-grade Madsen Mine in Ontario's Red Lake District, a region that hosts some of the world's richest gold deposits producing 30 million ounces of gold to date. 1 The fully permitted Madsen Mine boasts a high-grade gold resource of 1.65 million ounces at 7.4 grams per ton (g/t) across 6.9 million tonnes (Indicated), and an additional 366,000 ounces at 6.3 g/t (Inferred). The property also includes significant infrastructure including an expandable 800 tonne per day processing mill, underground development and a water treatment plant. West Red Lake Gold Mines Pours First Gold Bar from Madsen Mill Recovery Program West Red Lake Gold Mines Ltd. (TSXV:WRLG) (OTCQB:WRLGF) just announced that it has poured its first gold bar from the gold recovered through the Madsen Mine mill cleanup and recovery program. The gold recovery program, which was initiated in late 2023 after the company noticed significant gold-bearing material accumulated in parts of the mill, had already yielded 415 ounces of gold worth approximately $750,000 from the initial phase. In a second phase the company cleaned additional parts of the mill. The milled material was passed through a gravity circuit to separate out the coarse gold; the material is now being sent to a large-scale refinery to recover the gold fines. The company used the gold refinery at the Madsen mill to pour the recovered coarse gold into a gold bar on site, confirming that the equipment is operating smoothly after 18 months of inactivity. “Seeing the refinery in action was another check mark on our list of Operational Readiness requirements,” said West Red Lake Gold Mines CEO Shane Williams. “Starting or restarting a mine requires reliable operations from multiple facilities and systems. With over 100 employees at site, constant underground development and drilling, and multiple capital projects underway or in planning, we are establishing the systems that support smooth mine operations. From my experience building and commissioning mines, I know what a difference it makes to a new operation to have such systems in place prior to start up.” West Red Lake Gold Mines Reports High-Grade Drill Results West Red Lake Gold Mines Ltd. (TSXV:WRLG) (OTCQB:WRLGF) also recently announced noteworthy drill results from its 100%-owned Madsen Mine, including 16.69 grams per tonne gold over 8.0 meters and 7.48 grams per tonne gold over 12.0 meters at the South Austin Zone in the Madsen Mine. The high-grade South Austin Zone currently holds an Indicated mineral resource of 474,600 ounces (oz) of gold (Au) with a grade of 8.7 grams per tonne (g/t), and an additional Inferred resource of 31,800 oz grading 8.7 g/t Au. The drilling aimed to define resources within South Austin to build a high-confidence inventory for the planned restart of production at the Madsen mine. In May, West Red Lake Gold Mines announced drill results at the North Austin Zone at the Madsen Mine, including 37.33 grams per tonne gold over 2.79 meters and 5.26 grams per tonne gold over 9.0 meters. The latest drill results at North Austin Zone indicate a new high-grade gold area extending the current Madsen resource to the northeast. The drilling program aims to expand this zone further down-plunge in that direction. The team is focusing on three main plunge lines (ore shoots) at North Austin. So far, the results have confirmed continuity of about 30 meters in at least one of these ore shoots, suggesting significant potential for further expansion. These results come at a time when gold is hovering below its recent high of $2,400 per ounce, a price surge that has been significantly influenced by record gold buying in China. Gwen Preston, VP Investors Relations with West Red Lake Gold, recently highlighted this revelation at the May Metals Investors Forum. 2 She explained that consumers and retail investors in China are reconsidering their financial strategies, as traditional avenues like real estate, the stock market and interest rates are no longer effective and deflation reaches its worst in 15 years. In April, China experienced robust wholesale gold demand, driven by a surge in investment despite weaknesses in the jewelry sector. Chinese gold ETFs had their strongest month on record​. 3 The other half to the equation is China’s central bank, which has continued its streak of consecutive purchases for 18 months despite high prices, adding 60,000 troy ounces of gold to its reserves in April. West Red Lake Gold Mines is well-positioned to meet its targeted restart timeline in the second half of 2025, and recently closed a public offering of shares and charity units. The company sold 31.9 million regular units and 11.2 million charity units at prices of C$0.72 and C$0.89 per unit, respectively. This raised about C$33 million for the company. Raymond James Ltd. led the offering. Each unit includes a share of the company and a warrant to buy more shares later at C$1.00 each.

New Data from Golsan Scruggs Shows Insurance Carriers Becoming More Comfortable Offering Coverage to Financial Advisors for Digital Assets

Golsan Scruggs

Insurance companies are more willing to offer errors and omissions coverage to registered investment advisors (RIAs) who seek protection for claims arising from cryptocurrency investments, as noted by a steep drop in premium costs, according to proprietary data from Golsan Scruggs, the corporate insurance brokerage firm serving the financial services industry. Typically, the best barometer of how insurers view risk, premiums for E&O coverage related to digital asset insurance have dropped by roughly half in just a year. “About a year ago, advisors who wanted to add cryptocurrencies to their clients’ portfolios often had to do so without the protection of insurance, since premiums were often prohibitive, assuming they could even find coverage,” said Brian Francetich, shareholder and director of Golsan Scruggs. “The environment has changed dramatically, and now RIAs can better mitigate their own risks if they feel their clients could benefit from increased exposure to the asset class.” The drop in premium prices is driven by two primary factors. First, insurance companies believe that the regulatory environment is becoming clearer, with greater oversight from both the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, which regulate advisors’ use and communications around cryptocurrencies. Second, insurance companies are more comfortable with how these assets are custodied. A third factor is advisors themselves. “Most financial advisors have been cautious about adding cryptocurrencies, but it is clear that client demand has prompted the industry to do more diligence,” Francetich said. “Advisors are becoming more experienced in the asset class, and insurers have taken notice.” Price drops come with some caveats. Insurance companies are more likely to offer coverage for portfolios where direct digital assets represent less than 10% of total assets under management. Also, not all crypto assets are treated alike. While areas like bitcoin and ethereum exposure are covered, other digital assets are often excluded. Advisors seeking coverage should also demonstrate a strict compliance program surrounding these assets, including ADV disclosures, as well as presenting a general maximum allocation to digital assets for specific clients and not rolling it out to all clients regardless of risk tolerance. Advisors should also consider additional client disclosures where clients acknowledge the risk and volatility within the space. Advisors must be prepared for a continued evolution in insurers’ thinking around digital assets in general. “RIAs in particular should be talking with their insurance broker more frequently about the landscape around crypto, since it changes so quickly,” Francetich said. “What was true six months ago may not be true six months from now.” ABOUT GOLSAN SCRUGGS Golsan Scruggs is a corporate insurance brokerage firm serving the financial services industry. Our specialists operate throughout the United States and specialize in registered investment advisor (RIA), private equity/hedge fund, and mutual fund professional liability errors & omissions (E&O) insurance.

Colorectal Cancer Survival Rate After 5 Years Is 90% With Early Detection, Yet Testing Is Inaccessible For Many – Mainz Biomed Wants To Change That

Benzinga

By Meg Flippin, Benzinga Colorectal cancer is a leading cause of death in America, killing 50,000 people each year. But if it's caught early, the survival rate after five years is 90%. Despite those favorable odds, only about four in 10 colorectal cancers are spotted at the early stage. There are several reasons why more people aren’t getting screened for this devastating cancer. Some aren’t aware that regular testing can save their lives, many can’t afford it, while others don’t have access. Colonoscopies done at ten-year intervals and occult blood tests (FITS) performed annually or biannually are the two forms of screenings, but both have disadvantages. Colonoscopies, while very precise, involve an unpleasant procedure and lengthy intestinal cleansing. Occult blood tests are more widely accepted, but they can only provide indirect evidence of disease and often only in later, bleeding stages. https://youtu.be/VOPm4wZMj2k Advanced Screening Equals Early Detection To be effective, cancer screening has to be simple, readily available and affordable, which is where Mainz Biomed (NASDAQ: MYNZ) comes in. The molecular genetics diagnostic company specializing in the early detection of cancer is revolutionizing the colorectal cancer testing industry with ColoAlert, its flagship product. ColoAlert is an early detection screening that spots bleeding and non-bleeding tumors through tumor DNA analysis, offering what the company says is better early detection than fecal occult blood tests. That’s important since almost all colorectal cancers develop from polyps that grow over time. The longer the polyps are present, the higher the risk of them becoming cancerous, which is why early screening has the potential to dramatically impact treatment and prevention. Colorectal cancer originates from the genetic mutation of intestinal cells. These are continuously excreted through the stool and can be examined for tumor DNA using modern genetic diagnostic methods. ColoAlert analyzes samples for the four tumor markers associated with cancer: KRAS-mutation, BRAF-mutation, total amount of human DNA and occult blood. That’s something competing at-home screenings can’t claim to do. By analyzing tumor DNA, Mainz says ColoAlert detects 85% of colorectal cancer cases – often in the very early stages of the disease. That is a key differentiator, given the company says 71% of the diagnoses made are in the later stages of the disease. Market Opportunity Is Broad If ColoAlert proves to be game-changing in terms of getting more people to screen for colorectal cancer, it's a big opportunity for Mainz. As it stands, 37 million people in the U.S. get screened for rectal cancer each year. That could increase to 52 million per year within ten years as the population ages. In the United States there are 112 million people over 50, which is expected to increase to 157 million in the next decade. Of the U.S. population between 50 and 75, about 40% have never been screened. While the common practice is to start the screening at 50, the Food and Drug Administration says screening should start at age 45 and be conducted every three years. If that guidance is followed, it presents an even bigger opportunity for ColoAlert. All told, Mainz pegs the U.S. opportunity at $4 billion and the European market opportunity at $6 billion. ColoAlert is already proving to be more accurate than rivals’ at-home tests, which should drive adoption rates and help Mainz Biomed achieve its goals. A recent multicentric study of 566 patients simultaneously using the occult blood test, M2-PK test and ColoAlert, found ColoAlert, with a sensitivity of 85% and a specificity of 92%, was the most accurate test result among the non-invasive screening methods. The company plans to engage in further testing to validate the effectiveness of its screening over what’s already available in the market. “Combined DNA stool assay represents a reliable assay for detecting colorectal cancer, sufficient to be recommended as a supplement to colonoscopy screening,” the study researchers reported. Making It Easy On top of being accurate, ColoAlert is easy to use, which could be a big driver of adoption. Within five minutes, the sample is collected and packaged and on the way to the lab. Patients receive a kit in the mail that includes instructions, a stool collector and a shipping label to return the kit to their local lab for testing. Patients receive the results in a few days. Unlike the rival ColoGuard, Mainz says ColoAlert requires very small samples to test, which is one of the reasons the company boasts 98% patient satisfaction. Colorectal cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and a leading cause of cancer death globally, but it doesn’t have to be. Early detection means all the difference, yet far too many people don’t get screened each year. Mainz is hoping ColoAlert will change that, helping to lower incidents of this and other gastrointestinal cancers. To learn more about ColoAlert and the science behind it, click here.
