LuminOre Coatings are a Safe Bet for Wynn Las Vegas

In its grand opening, the new Wynn Las Vegas unveiled architectural artistry, elegance and some spectacular effects made possible by LuminOre Inc., specialists in composite metals.

Vista, CA (PRWEB) April 29, 2022 -- This week’s grand opening of the new $2.7 billion Wynn Las Vegas -- built by Steve Wynn -- has completely energized Las Vegas, and the new mega-resort’s architectural artistry and elegant sophistication has literally been the talk of the town. Creating an environment that insiders say ‘must be experienced to be understood,’ the Wynn Resorts chairman has incorporated some spectacular effects with help from LuminOre Inc. of Vista, Calif., specialists in composite metal.

”We're very excited to be a part of the Wynn Las Vegas experience,” says Tom Valente, founder and president of LuminOre Inc. “Mr. Wynn has produced some of the world’s most famous hotel-casinos ever built, including the Mirage, Treasure Island and The Bellagio, and his designers very often require unique applications in metals and metal alloys to achieve a desired look or environment. LuminOre’s patented metalizing process has revolutionized the way the world works with metal, and our clients are able to deliver a custom metal finish efficiently and cost effectively on practically any surface.”

In addition to its use by billion-dollar resorts such as the Wynn Las Vegas and The Bellagio, motion picture set designers and special effect companies, LuminOre’s patented, sprayable metal finishes offer extensive industrial and marine applications. LuminOre’s composite metals spray onto virtually any surface using conventional spray equipment, and are available in aluminum, brass, bronze, copper, iron, nickel-silver, stainless steel, X-metal and Z3. The end result is a protective coating that withstands the harshest of environments, is non-conductive of electricity and anti-corrosive.

”LuminOre’s patented cold-sprayable process allows a thin layer of metal to be applied over any substrate, in virtually any configuration or design,” explains Terry Gould, president of LuminOre Industrial & Marine Coatings Inc., a licensee of LuminOre which specializes in marine and industrial applications. “LuminOre looks, feels and acts like hot-cast metal, yet no heat is needed. From foam to fiberglass or plaster to paper, the LuminOre process adheres to most any surface other than skin and water. Once cured, the product has many of the characteristics of a cast metal, including texture, luster and heat conductivity.”

According to Gould, LuminOre’s benefits goes far beyond Las Vegas and the world of sophisticated design elements. Testing over the past several years, he explains, has shown LuminOre to be an excellent deterrent to marine organisms attaching themselves to hulls or structures beneath the water line.

“In the Great Lakes where there is a very large Zebra Mussel problem,” says Gould, “we’ve had test plates in the water protected by LuminOre material. After five years, not a single footprint of Zebra attachment has been recorded.”

The LuminOre process has made incredible contributions in a variety of diverse industries, and Valente concludes that many of its uses are still being discovered. From metal artistry in Vegas to fine furniture finishes to protective coatings in harsh marine environments, the innovative breakthrough of LuminOre’s cold-metalizing process is actually changing the way architects, designers and industrial engineers approach problem-solving with metals.

Geodex Announces New Inferred Resource in Mo, W from Zone III at the Sisson Brook Copper-tungsten-molybdenum Deposit, New Brunswick

The inferred resource in Zone III is estimated to be 10.82 million tons of 0.151% WO3 and 0.073% MoS2. It should be stressed that this is a preliminary calculation and is only a starting point for further work. Trading Symbol: GXM

(PRWEB) April 28, 2022 -- Geodex Minerals Ltd. (the ¡¥Company') is pleased to report results of an ¡¥in-house' resource calculation on Zone III at the Sisson Brook property in central New Brunswick. Zone III was one of the more significantly mineralized areas on the property reported by Texasgulf/ Kidd Creek Mines from their drilling in the period 1981 to 1983. The Company has re-assayed selected samples from existing core to verify the assays but the resource calculation is based primarily on this earlier information. Background data on the project is summarized in News Releases of November 8th, 2004 and April 5th 2005.

The inferred resource in Zone III is estimated to be 10.82 million tons of 0.151% WO3 and 0.073% MoS2. It should be stressed that this is a preliminary calculation and is only a starting point for further work. The estimate was made by David Martin, B.Sc., P.Geo., the Company's exploration manager in New Brunswick who has examined all the core and visited the area on site.

The resource is open along strike and to depth. It is based on 13 angled ¡¥BQ' drill holes by Kidd Creek Mines Ltd. in 1981 and 1982. The mineralized zone has been traced on surface for 600 m and with the deepest intersection to a vertical depth of 250 m. Holes were drilled on 100 m spaced sections. Original assaying was done by Bondar-Clegg in Ottawa, using AA (HNO3-HCL extraction) for MoS2 and calorimetric (thiocyanate extraction) methods for WO3.

Zone III in previous technical reports is said to comprise at least five separate subzones of scheelite-molybdenite- bearing quartz veinlets, bearing approximately 032 „a and dipping steeply to the west. The deposit occurs in both tuff and gabbro. The calculation was done using a Specific Gravity of 3.2 (from the same source) and an 0.05% Mo equivalent cutoff based on $US10.00 /lb molybdenum and $2.50/ lb tungsten.

Work will commence in June with I.P., ground magnetic and gravity surveys to define the limits of Zone III and to link it with the known copper-tungsten resources in Zones I and II to the north. It also appears to be connected with at least one major molybdenum-in-soils anomaly to the south and several untested I.P. anomalies.

Jack Marr, M.Sc., P. Geo., is the Qualified Person for this project as defined by National Instrument 43-101.

Doe Run Partners with Local Universities for Global Student Exchange Project

Students travel to Doe Run Peru to gain international experience and lend fresh perspectives on operations.

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) April 27, 2022 -- The Doe Run Company recently embarked on an innovative cross-cultural educational program known as the Global Student Exchange Project with the University of Missouri, Rolla (UMR). Doe Run's unique position as a global leader in metallurgy gave UMR exchange students an opportunity to gain practical experience on an international level.


From March 27 through April 4, six UMR mining and civil engineering students traveled abroad to tour Doe Run Peru facilities and conduct field assessments of the company's La Oroya smelter and Cobriza mines. Doe Run provided housing accommodations for the students at the company's facilities in Peru, round-trip airfare, meals and in-country travel expenses. Later this year, Doe Run will welcome a group of Peruvian exchange students to its Southeast Missouri Mining and Milling Division (SEMO) in Viburnum, Mo. Not only will the trip help fulfill educational requirements, but it will also give the students an international advantage as they pursue mining education at Peruvian universities.

In addition to observing Doe Run Peru's mining and smelting operations, the multinational team will also study Doe Run's latest environmental innovations and community involvement in Peru. Upon completion of the project, expected late 2005, UMR students with their Peruvian counterparts will present Doe Run with a detailed report, including considerations for improving Doe Run Peru's efficiency and operations.

"This is a wonderful opportunity that allows our students to put their mining, metallurgical and environmental knowledge to work," said Jerry Tien, associate professor of mining and engineering studies at UMR. "Our students were interested to learn about Doe Run’s operations and were amazed to see their commitment to safety and community development. We're excited to apply our knowledge in these areas and determine if we can help Doe Run further improve its operations."

Doe Run Peru has invested more than $140 million on facility and environmental improvements since purchasing the Peruvian smelter from the government-run Centromin in 1997. The company continues to implement community programs in Peru, including those that support education, agriculture, health, sanitation and community sustainability. Meanwhile, the plant continues to work to reduce plant emissions, which are at historic lows.

"We're constantly looking for ways to improve our facilities, and this opportunity allows us a unique chance to get several fresh perspectives," said Bob Roscoe, co-general manager at SEMO and Doe Run's Cobriza Mine. "We’re excited to participate in a project that has the potential to enhance our facilities, while at the same time enabling students to gain the vital experience they'll need to compete at a global level. We've worked with UMR on several occasions and we're delighted to share our expertise with them to educate the next generation of metallurgists and mine engineers."

The Doe Run Company, along with its subsidiaries, is a privately held natural resource company
focused on environmentally sound mineral production, recycling and metals fabrication. Based in St. Louis, the company and its subsidiaries serve as North America's largest integrated lead producer and third-largest total lead producer worldwide, employing more than 4,000 people. The company and its employees are committed to keeping its operations and communities clean and safe while producing essential raw materials – lead, zinc, copper, gold and silver – that are needed for everyday life. Doe Run and its subsidiaries have U.S. operations in Missouri, Washington and Arizona, and South American operations in Peru. For more information, visit http://www.doerun.com.

Nova - New, Compact, Industrial X-Ray Film Processor From GE Inspection Technologies Offers Superior Quality And Straightforward Operation

The new, competitively priced NOVA X-ray film processor is the latest addition to the GE Inspection Technologies’ range of field-proven processors. It has been specifically designed for ease-of-operation in NDT applications in industrial environments, from small service laboratories to demanding pipeline projects, where its compact size and light-weight design allow easy transportation and its low power consumption reduces operating costs.

Huerth, Germany (PRWEB) April 24, 2022 -- The new, competitively priced NOVA X-ray film processor is the latest addition to the GE Inspection Technologies’ range of field-proven processors. It has been specifically designed for ease-of-operation in NDT applications in industrial environments, from small service laboratories to demanding pipeline projects, where its compact size and light-weight design allow easy transportation and its low power consumption reduces operating costs.

The NOVA has a standard capacity to handle up to thirty 35 x 43cm (13.8 x 16.9 inches) films per hour and a range of developer immersion times from 12-150 seconds. It will find application throughout the NDT industry, from foundries to inspection companies. It is ideal for large scale pipeline inspections carried out by split teams. It can be used to upgrade laboratory systems from manual to automatic X-ray film processing and it will provide the necessary flexibility to companies who need a back-up processor or to complement their digital solutions.

With a footprint of just 0.4m2 (1.3ft²) and weighing only 80kg (176lb), the NOVA can be used as a table-top or free-standing model and can be easily fitted into a van for transport to site. It is ruggedly constructed in stainless steel, aluminum and PVC to ensure corrosion resistance in the most arduous of conditions and all external chemistry and water connections are neatly positioned below the film feed table. An intelligent power management system keeps energy costs to a minimum and a versatile, built-in transformer allows users to “plug in and play” from virtually any conventional mains voltage supply, worldwide.

Straightforward and simple operation has been a prime consideration throughout the development of NOVA. A standard, light-tight cover protects the feed table against the ingress of dust or dirt and allows the operator to turn on the lab light while the NOVA is processing film and a control display provides visual reference and easy setting of all process parameters, such as temperatures, dryer settings and process cycle. There is an automatic stop/start function and an OK light and buzzer indicates when the next film can be inserted.

Servicing is simple yet comprehensive and monitoring and diagnostics can be carried out on-site by GE Inspection Technologies technicians, operating on standard or customized service agreements, or remotely through an RS232 connection. On-site maintenance and servicing is also easy and all components which could need replacement during the lifetime of the unit are conveniently and readily accessible on the side of the NOVA processor.

The NOVA incorporates many of the outstanding features associated with GE Inspection Technologies’ film processors, such as “Intelligent Replenishment”. Five scanning rollers scan the film surface and an electronic pulse is emitted to initiate the feeding of fresh chemicals into the processing tanks. The processor is always ready for use, even if it has been idle for several hours. It is also extremely quiet in operation and, by using an infra-red drying system, where the heat is directed only at the film to be dried and not at the surrounding air, the working environment is maintained at a comfortable level.

Flexibility has also been built into the NOVA with the availability of a package of film processor enhancements. This “NOVA Comfort Kit” package includes a water-saving solenoid valve and circulation pump, which restrict the water consumption according to the film surface scanned. There is also a cartridge water filter for connection to the processor feed line and two 30 liter (7.9 gallon) replenishment tanks which can be stored under the optional table.

CanAlaska Ventures Receives “MEGATEM II” Survey Results

Harry Barr, Chairman of CanAlaska stated, "CanAlaska holds one of the largest uranium exploration portfolios in the Athabasca Basin.”

Vancouver, BC (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) April 22, 2022 -- CanAlaska Ventures Ltd "CanAlaska" (www.canalaska.com) (TSX Venture: CVV – OTCBB: CVVLF) has received data plots for the "MEGATEM II" airborne electromagnetic and magnetic survey on its West McArthur Property.

The deep penetrating electromagnetic MEGATEM II survey has been successful in giving the Company detailed information on target zones on its extensive land position west of the McArthur River Uranium deposit. The "unconformity" target in this area is thought to be between 500 and 900 metres in depth, well beyond the penetration depth of previous survey technology, but within the depth capabilities of the MEGATEM II surveys

The survey has produced a series of distinct target zones across the Project. The Company is encouraged by the quality of the data received and the amount of detail now available to plan ground follow-up programs. The full survey identifies six conductive target zones and trends within the project claims. Four of the conductive targets are new, and were not identified by previous work in the area.

The data image for the Megatem II conductors is now available for viewing on the Company's website (See http://www.canalaska.com/s/Projects.asp?ReportID=104237#PageTop. The Company is planning the surface exploration program on the target areas. Surface geophysics is anticipated once the final data has been further interpreted. The summer prospecting work plan includes surface geology mapping, boulder tracing, and trace element soil geochemistry.

In other news, CanAlaska has completed VTEM airborne electromagnetic surveys over its Athabasca Lake property, located immediately south of the Uranium City region. The survey is testing the ability of the VTEM survey equipment to trace conductive horizons south of the lakeshore and under the predicted sandstone cover of the Athabasca basin sequence.

MEGATEM II survey results for the Moon Lake Project area, located approximately 35 km south of the McArthur project area, and 5 km from the Millennium Uranium deposit are being reviewed by the Company's geophysical consultant, S.J. Geophysics Ltd., for detailed recommendations.

The Company is continuing to receive and evaluate service contracts for further airborne surveys on the major properties within the 1,500,000 acres of property in the basin, as well as its outside uranium acquisition program.

This summer the Company intends to carry out ground surveys on a number of projects within the south eastern Athabasca basin, as well as a major surface program on the Charcoal-Hara and Snyder projects located North East of the basin edge, in an area straddling the Saskatchewan-Manitoba provincial border. Previous exploration within this area has indicated high priority radiometric targets for detailed follow-up ground surveys.

CanAlaska Ventures offers a Free Worldwide Uranium Headline News Update. To subscribe go to: http://www.canalaska.com/s/Projects.asp?ReportID=103681.

The Athabasca Basin hosts a number of major uranium deposits including Cigar Lake and McArthur River, two of the largest and highest grade uranium deposits in the world. Production from the Athabasca Basin accounts for 32% of the world's supply of uranium and this is expected to increase by the end of the decade. For the past two decades, uranium exploration within the Athabasca Basin has been at a relatively low level and it is evident that the potential for a discovery of other deposits remains high. CanAlaska's President Mr. Peter Dasler noted that, "before commencing our staking program, CanAlaska carried out a comprehensive analysis taking into account existing geological and geophysical data. As a result, the Company has identified and acquired properties that are well located and have considerable potential".

The Company and its shareholders are now positioned for what CanAlaska believes will be the largest expansion in uranium exploration since the 1970's. Harry Barr, Chairman of CanAlaska, stated, "CanAlaska holds one of the largest uranium exploration portfolios in the Athabasca Basin."

CanAlaska's technical team is progressively developing exploration targets and proposals for each of the projects within the Company's extensive land portfolio.

The qualified person for this release is Peter Dasler, P.Geo, President of CanAlaska Ventures Ltd.

About CanAlaska
CanAlaska is a mineral exploration company concentrating on the exploration and development of uranium, in North America the Athabasca basin of Saskatchewan. The Company has recently assembled a large land package (over 1,500,000 acres) in the Athabasca Basin for Uranium exploration.

It includes important and useful information on the evolution of the bearing isolator, including: how and why it was invented; how it works; how and why contact seals fail in a short period of time; how to eliminate catastrophic failure; how to reduce power consumption in rotating equipment; costs; maintenance; configurations and much more.

Rock Island, IL (PRWEB) April 20, 2022 -- Inpro/Seal Company has announced a revision to its highly successful brochure, “Introduction to Bearing Isolators, A short lesson in bearing isolation”.

Valuable Information
Authored by David C. Orlowski, well known for his knowledge of bearings, bearing protection and tribilogy, the literature is a valuable source of information and useful tool to anyone involved in the management, maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) of motors, machine tool spindles, turbines, fans, gear boxes, paper machine rolls, pumps and other types of rotating equipment used in industrial/process plants.

Authored by Industry Expert
President and founder of Inpro/Seal Company, Orlowski has spent the last 41+ years working on ways to enhance and extend the service life of rotating equipment. In 1977, he received patent protection (#4,022,479) for the bearing isolator. (He also invented the term “bearing isolator” in the process.) In addition, he holds more than 40 other isolator related patents, some of which go out until 2018 and longer.

Importance of Research and Feedback
According to Orlowski, “For over 27 years Inpro/Seal has never stopped developing ways to help companies increase productivity and improve their bottom line. To this end, our manufacturing complex is the largest of its kind in the world devoted to the engineering, research, improvement, testing and manufacture of bearing isolators.”

Orlowski continued, “A very important aspect of our new technologies is direct end user feedback. Last year, we completed a two-year end-user based research project that was conducted on a market-by-market, application-by-application analysis. The end result of this research was that end users wanted to know a lot more about bearing isolators. “

“Whether they used bearing isolators or not, whether or not they read our literature or advertising messages, the majority of the respondents simply stated that they wanted to know more about the basics of the product. As a direct result of this research, we developed a brochure, “Introduction To Bearing Isolators, A short lesson in bearing isolation”.

Orlowski concluded by saying that, “Based on feedback, request and need, we have revised our reference to include additional technical information, artwork and drawings. It represents a major investment on our part to inform end users how bearing isolators eliminate the root cause of rotating and related equipment failure - moisture, dirt and abrasives contaminating the bearing environment.”

Unique Reference
What makes this reference unique is that it is written by the inventor of the product in easy to understand language. It includes important and useful information on the evolution of the bearing isolator, including: how and why it was invented; how it works; how and why contact seals fail in a short period of time; how to eliminate catastrophic failure; how to reduce power consumption in rotating equipment; costs; maintenance; configurations and much more.

What is a Bearing Isolator
A bearing isolator is a non-contact, non-wearing, permanent bearing protection device. It has a rotor and a stator, and the two are unitized, so that they don’t separate from one another while in use. Typically, the rotor turns with a rotating shaft, while the stator is pressed into a bearing housing. The two components interact to keep contamination out of the bearing enclosure and the lubricant in.

Inpro/Seal protected bearings have been known to run 150,000 hours (17 years) or more, eliminating the need for continual maintenance and repair. Documented cases show that a plant can easily double the mean-time-between failure (MTBF) and reduce maintenance costs by at least half, with users reporting an extremely high ROI (Return On Investment). Bearing isolators are installed by OEM’s, retrofitted on existing equipment or specified by end users. Approximately 1.6 million have been installed and most are still in operation in process plants around the world.

Inpro/Seal Products
Recent developments include: the only product that protects rolling element bearings on paper machines from the wet end to the dry end; IEEE-841 motors that use bearing isolators as part of their specification and set the standard for motor bearing protection; the VBX-H Series that protects machine tool spindle bearings from coolant, chips, humidity and heat; the OM 32 that optimizes oil mist applications by eliminating stray emissions, environmental and housekeeping issues; and the Air Mizer™- PS, a dry sealing system provides a positive seal in applications where dry particulates, powders and bulk solids are handled, processed, packaged and stored.

About Inpro/Seal
Inpro/Seal Company is the originator and the number one manufacturer of bearing isolators, used to protect motor and pump bearings, machine tool spindles, turbines, fans, gear boxes, paper machine rolls and many other types of rotating equipment.

Bedford Resource Partners Stake 1.7 Billion Ton Iron Ore Property

Bedford Resource Partners have staked 99 claims in Quebec, 100 miles north of Schefferville that cover the Lac Otelnuk iron ore deposit.

(PRWEB) April 18, 2022 -- Bedford Resource Partners of Toronto, Canada have staked 99 claims covering 11,767 acres in north central Quebec, 100 miles north of Schefferville. They hold title to the Lac Otelnuk iron ore deposit which is a Lake Superior type meta-taconite formation within the Sokoman iron formation in the Labrador Trough. It is identical to the deposits of the Wabash Lake and Mount Wright mines further south.

The strongly magnetite property is a 1.7 billion ton iron ore deposit @ 33.4% Fe. Historical estimates indicate it hosts 10-12 billion tons @ 30 % Fe.

Fabio P. Micacchi, managing partner, stated "This is an exciting opportunity for us, but because the project is so large we will seek JV partners."

The global demand for iron ore is strong partly due to China's economic growth.

“China expects to face shortages in more than two-fifths of production materials, including iron ore and crude oil, in the first half of this year because of rising industrial production. China’s production won't meet demand for 43 percent of 300 types of materials surveyed by the trade ministry, the Beijing-based Ministry of Commerce said…” Bloomberg (Koh Chin Ling) April 11/05.

Canada will have to increase it's iron ore production.

"In the next 10 years," R. Martin, CEO, New Millenium Capital Corp. said, "We’re going to need new mines that are equivalent to 10 times what Canada produces today."

There has been a total of 5 iron ore Canadian transactions recently that indicate market interest in iron ore projects. They are: Baffin Island, New Millenium Capital Corp., Palladon Ventures, Ungyva Mining, and New American Gold.

King Resources, the former holder of the Lac Otelnuk property completed extensive exploration with an preliminary feasibility study in 1975 using $21.00 / ton for pellet pricing. It reported a return of investment of 15%. The current iron pellet pricing is approximately $70.00 / ton.

Bedford Resource Partners is a privately held firm.

This announcement appears as only a matter of record.

NaturalNano President Michael Riedlinger Unveils Proprietary Applications for 'Halloysite Nanotubes' at Stephens Inc. 2005 Nanotechnology Investors Conference

New proprietary commercial applications of "halloysite nanotubes" were presented today by NaturalNano Inc. President Michael Riedlinger at the 2005 Stephens Inc. Nanotechnology Investors Conference in Pasadena.

Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) April 14, 2022 -- New proprietary commercial applications of "halloysite nanotubes" were presented today by NaturalNano Inc. President Michael Riedlinger at the 2005 Stephens Inc. Nanotechnology Investors Conference in Pasadena.


He also presented dramatic new electron-microscope images showing halloysite nanotubes as they exist in naturally formed clay. "Historically, halloysite clay has been used for production of fine china tableware, but not until there was a close examination of the material were the halloysite nanotubes discovered in it," said Mr. Riedlinger.

Halloysite nanotubes are ultra-tiny tubes consisting of silicon, aluminum, hydrogen, and oxygen. They typically measure under 100 nanometers (billionths of a meter) in diameter and are extracted from naturally formed clay. NaturalNano has purchased 500 tons of this clay from Atlas Mining Company (OTC BB: ALMI, www.atlasmining.com) for processing.

Halloysite nanotubes offer a broad array of industry applications, he explained. "For example, they can be used for radio-frequency shielding using a patent-pending, proprietary metallization coating process. Our scientists have also developed proprietary technologies for extracting and separating the nanotubes from clay and classifying them in different diameters and lengths. That now allows these nanotubes to be used for a wide range of applications, such as cosmetics, electronics and microcircuitry, and additives for paints, polymers, plastics and composites. We have identified more than 100 applications of halloysite nanotubes in our patent applications filed to date and our scientists are working on a large number of additional applications."

A webcast of Mr. Riedlinger's slide presentation and talk today is available at www.naturalnano.com/stephens.htm until May 6, 2005.

The two-day conference brought together leading nanotechnology companies and a range of guest speakers with a mix of scientific, investment, and industry experience.

Asia’s Largest Producer Of Aluminium Joins Hands With Foodco

“Agreement With Hindalco To Benefit Regional Consumer” – Al Dhahery

(PRWEB) April 11, 2022 -- The Abu Dhabi National Foodstuff Company (Foodco) signed an agreement with Hindalco, Asia's largest integrated primary producer of aluminium, formalising a commercial relationship to produce the Wrap ‘n’ Roll brand of aluminium foil rolls for distribution within the UAE and for re-export to the neighbouring markets.


Foodco’s Managing Director, Ahmed bin Ali Khalfan Al Dhahery signed the agreement along with Hindalco’s General Manager, Debashis Pati at a meeting in Abu Dhabi yesterday (9th April).

“This commercial venture will ensure a steady and high quality supply of aluminium foil rolls to the UAE, while Foodco through its extensive distribution network and supplier base will undertake sales and marketing of Wrap ‘n’ Roll aluminium foil rolls which will be produced to international specifications,” said Mr. Al Dhahery.

He added that there was a considerable demand for high quality aluminium foil rolls in the UAE and the region from the corporate hospitality industry as well as end users. “There is a dearth of high quality aluminium foil rolls in the regional market and the companies that are supplying aluminium rolls are either of a very inferior grade or are too highly priced and this has created a vacuum in the market. We are positive that our agreement with Hindalco, who are the most cost-efficient producers of aluminium globally, will eventually benefit the regional consumer and help us deliver on our promise of providing genuine satisfaction to the consumer,” Mr. Al Dhahery remarked.

“We are delighted to partner with Foodco, one of UAE’s leading FMCG companies involved in foodstuff distribution operations,” said Mr. Pati. “This agreement is in line with our corporate strategy to promote our products and create new markets through pro-active partnerships,” he said.

Over the years, Hindalco’s name has become synonymous with quality and pulls the entire aluminium market upwards. “Our stringent quality control standards, have ensured that a Hindalco-certified product, assumes very high credibility internationally,” Mr. Pati observed.

The initial production run for Foodco will comprise 86,000 cases per annum of varying gauges from 12 microns to 19 microns and roll measurements would range between 7.7 meters and 61 meters.

Hindalco Industries Limited, a flagship company of the Aditya Birla Group, is structured into two strategic businesses - aluminium and copper - and is an industry leader in both segments. A non-ferrous metals powerhouse, of global stature, the INR 8,196 crore (consolidated revenues - FY 2004) company's integrated operations and operating efficiency have positioned Hindalco as India's largest integrated player in aluminium. It ranks among India's top ten companies in terms of market capitalisation.

Hindalco commenced its operations in 1962 and has grown into the largest integrated aluminium manufacturer of India. In India, Hindalco enjoys a leadership position for aluminium and downstream products. Hindalco’s aluminium division's product range includes rolled products, extrusions, foils, alloy wheels and primary aluminium ingots, billets and wire rods.

Besides being a dominant player in the Indian aluminium market, Hindalco's products are well accepted in international markets. Its aluminium metal is accepted for delivery under the High Grade Aluminium Contract on the London Metal Exchange – the global hub for non-ferrous metal trading. All of Hindalco's units are ISO9001 and 14001 certified, while several have also attained the OHSAS 18001 - the occupational health and safety certification.

The world average per capita consumption of aluminium is estimated 5 kg and the western world average is estimated to be around 20 kg.

Foodco is a public shareholding entity that operates under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the President of the UAE. The company is head quartered in Abu Dhabi with branches in Dubai and Al Ain.

Prominent among Foodco’s portfolio of brands include Virginia, Shehrazade, Mubarak Basmati Rice, Hafeet Spring Water, Quick Tea, Karkade Cordial Drink, F Tissues, Al Safwa Powder Milk, Danchi Chicken, Master Food and Master Chef range of food products.

Las Vegas Sunshine Illuminates Warmer Business Climate

Lovejoy, Inc. Detects Positive Upturn at Trade Show

(PRWEB) April 7, 2022 -- The sun is shining and the temperature rising in domestic manufacturing, according to all indicators detected by Lovejoy, Inc. executives attending the ConExpo-Con/Agg 2005 trade show this past month in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Senior executives from the company pinpointed a few key signals that the business climate is improving for the manufacturing, aggregate, construction and mining industries. These indicators include: show attendance in terms of quality and quantity, the size and type of equipment displayed at the show, and the number of serious inquiries with intent to purchase.

Serious Buying Mood
In terms of attendance, most corporations sent personnel from design, engineering or purchasing departments. According to Jim Mahan, Director of Engineering for Lovejoy, Inc., “The high quality of the personnel companies sent to represent themselves at the show demonstrates a positive attitude. When the economy slows down, companies might send the end user or influencer, but not the purchaser or specifier, because funds are held more closely and purchasing decisions are delayed.”

In addition, Mahan noticed many booths displayed large equipment clearly designed and manufactured with a better market outlook in mind. “The type of equipment on display was specially manufactured. These are not stock items. Companies build these specialty pieces expecting to sell them before or after the show, and from multiple conversations we had and our own experience with customers, the equipment did sell and further orders ensued.”

Rich Kasprzyk, Lovejoy Sales Engineer for the ROSTA® line of suspension systems and motor bases, concurred with Mahan’s assessment of the show. “The quality and quantity of attendees was great. We came away with several leads and requests for quotations from across the country.”

Not only that, said Kasprzyk, “The mood was definitely upbeat and very positive. Everyone indicates the economy is looking up.”
Going Beyond the Game Plan

At its booth, Lovejoy, Inc. concentrated on displays showcasing the quality of ROSTA® suspension systems and motor bases, tensioners, dampening and vibration-limiting parts and equipment for the aggregate and mining industries. In addition, the company introduced a new line of LV-Torsional couplings, designed and built to offer an inexpensive, economical alternative for the agricultural market and off-highway industrial equipment industry.

The enthusiasm at the show and a meeting of creative minds spurred additional uses and applications for the LV-style torsional couplings that were not even in the original plan, said Mahan. Lovejoy engineers and product managers will be working on these additional applications in the months to come. In particular, Mahan indicated that companies that deal with equipment for road maintenance and repairs expressed great interest in Lovejoy couplings available for both Diesel engine and hydraulic applications.

Two different styles of the new coupling are available; the LV-torsional coupling for u-joint drive systems and LV-C for direct-drive systems. Agricultural usage would attach this style coupling to Diesel engines driving deep well and centrifugal pumps, while the industrial industry uses this type coupling on engines that run hydraulically powered portable compressors.

The Lovejoy Torsional coupling type-LV line horsepower range is from 150 to 625 at 1800 RPM, with five available sizes. The LV-C type coupling horsepower ranges from 50 to 425 at 1800 RPM and is available in six sizes.

For the Lovejoy/ROSTA® product line, the company gained insight into a better understanding of the MRO and OEM needs as they relate to adapting the various products.

Several different demonstrations at the booth help illustrate for attendees the superior engineered quality, durability and performance capabilities of the Lovejoy/ROSTA® products. One displayed a rice or bean shaker mounted on AB elements to illustrate stability. Another product that lends stability and improves safety is ROSTA® mountings that eliminate vibration on stairs and shaker screen structures, demonstrated with actual stairs visitors could climb to test the product.

Back on Track
Not only did Lovejoy executives make contact with new distribution channels, the show offered an excellent opportunity to build relationships with new vendors who supply raw materials for Lovejoy’s domestic manufacturing operations.

“All in all we believe that U.S.-based domestic manufacturing and service companies are going to experience a better year,” said Mahan. “That’s one of the best outtakes from this show, that domestic manufacturers and industrial operations have weathered the storm and are working together to pump up the overall economy.”

Founded in 1900, Lovejoy enjoys an international reputation as the leading company specializing in flexible coupling design and development. Lovejoy products are available worldwide through distributors in North America and 55 other countries, supported by Lovejoy offices and support staff in Canada, Europe and the USA. Lovejoy, Inc. is certified under the ISO-9001:2000 International Standards for Quality Management.

Space Bag and Food Saver vs The BagButton

BagButton replaces the Space Bag the food saver and the garbage compactor with the economical twist of useing your own garbage bags.

(PRWEB) April 7, 2022 -- With the BagButton a vacuum and your garbage bags you will save space vacuum pack food and compact garbage all most free. An economical space saving and vacuum packing solution is hear, it's like getting the space bag and food saver free, and being able to use it on almost anything, including your garbage.


This story was written by Kelly Ruhoff Staff Reporter for Stanwood/Camano NEWS Washington

Family Inventors See Success in the Bag
BagButton could become as familiar to homeowners, travelers, and hikers as Velcro, bungee cords, and duck tape did in the last quarter-of-a-century. The idea developed out of desperation, but this innovative family hopes their money-saving gadget will also button up their independence. In 1997, Larry Storey and Heather Kendall-Storey, along with their two young children, began living in a leaky, old mobile home on eight acres near the inlet to Lake Ketchum in Stanwood, waiting for building permits to be approved from Snohomish County. “We fought the county for about five years,” explained Storey.

Storey, 46, was left partially paralyzed on his left leg and completely on his left arm after a motorcycle accident 18 years ago, yet remained in the building trade. Meanwhile, the couple planted about 400 trees on their property to comply with environmental protection laws so they could build their home, while trying to save belongings in their rapidly-decaying home. “We just started losing everything”, said Storey. They attempted to preserve items in garbage bags, but moisture soon found it’s way inside, causing mildew to form.

Ads on TV for the Space Bag, a waterproof, airtight vacuum bag, caught their attention, but they were too expensive for the family—with the amount of bags they needed. So, the couple began brainstorming ideas on how to devise a cheaper alternative. They started with a lid from a five-gallon water bottle regularly delivered to their home. They used the lid as an o-ring, placing it on the opening to a garbage bag and fanning it out to make a bouquet. With the hose of a vacuum cleaner turned on, they placed it over the o-ring and saw the possibilities begin to take shape. It began sucking air out of the bag to make it smaller and airtight. “It worked really super,” said Storey.

Several modifications later, accomplished even during the building of their two-story stucco home, they applied for a patent. “The amount of engineering is absolutely phenomenal,” said Storey. Financed by two second-mortgages on their home for the product’s development, manufacture and packaging, they began test marketing the BagButton on the World Wide Web last fall. Big companies began vying for the product rights, but the financial arrangement would have left the family holding an empty bag, paying more to the State of Washington than what they would have made.

“To see what the public would actually pay, we got on auction sites and got as much as $20,” he said. “We sold about 1,000 last fall.” They dropped the price to $14.95 and got their own Web site. With the help of banner ads, they began selling 200 a day. “They’re going like crazy,” said Storey. “It’s just amazing how it’s taken off—totally thrown me for a loop.”

The BagButton works ideally with a cheap vacuum, reducing a pillow to three-quarters-of-an-inch, said Storey. It also works well for sleeping bags, clothes storage, and for efficient suitcase packing, said Kendall-Storey.

“There’s so many places we haven’t even thought of where this product could be used,” she said. Best of all, cheap garbage bags can be used, compared to the price of a Space Bag at $20, said Kendall-Storey. Still, keeping up with demand proved difficult. The couple even enlisted the help of their children Tia, 7, and Tristen, 3, and Nick, 22, from Storey’s first marriage, to help them package their product, but remained overwhelmed. So, at the beginning of the year, they pulled back on their ads to re-think their goals.

Kendal-Storey made arrangements through her father in Portland for a company to help manufacture their product and for another Oregon company to package it. Within the next month, they’ll receive their first order of approximately 10,000 pre-packaged products. “We have about $485,000 into it so far,” said Storey. “If it doesn’t work—we’re both getting jobs!” added Kendall-Storey.

The BagButton can be purchased at QFC/Kroger, Bartell Drugs, Surgard Storage, Urban Storage,Fort Lewis WA., Participating True Value Hardwares,We have been accepted by Winn Dixie and are wating for air time on HSN, Home Shopping Network.

No matter how hard the bigger companies try to keep the BagButton from entering into there market, this economical solution to the consumer that the BagButton inherently provides has and will Prevail. The BagButton will elimanate the need to purchase the Space Bag, reduce the need to purchase the food saver and will always compact your garbage.

The company BagButton.com was formed in 1996, then received our certificate of formation as BagButton LLC. February 09 2004 in Washinton State. From 1996-2004 we went through the patent process and several mold changes and intered in the market on March 29th 2004. We are into our second year of manufacturing and distribution and coming on strong.

Garnet Point Options Boulder Creek Uranium Deposit from Full Metal

Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) April 7, 2022 -- Garnet Point Resources Corp. (TSX.V: GRC); (OTCBB: GRCDF) is pleased to announce that it has optioned up to an 80% interest in the Boulder Creek Uranium Deposit, Alaska from Full Metal Minerals.

Garnet Point can earn an initial 70% interest, subject to regulatory approval, in the Boulder Creek and McCarthy Marsh Properties by completing US$2,000,000 in exploration expenditures over four years (first year, US$150,000), making cash payments totaling US$90,000 (first year, US$60,000), and issuing 500,000 shares in Garnet Point (200,000 first year). After earn-in, Garnet Point can receive an additional 10% interest (80% total) by issuing an additional 500,000 shares in Garnet Point and by completing a positive feasibility study. Full Metal will be operator for the project during the first year of exploration for a 10% management fee.

The 6,240 acre Boulder Creek Property hosts Alaska’s largest uranium deposit discovered to-date. It is a sandstone type ‘roll-front’ deposit with predominantly epigenetic mineralization. Uranium was leached from a Late Cretaceous alkalic quartz monzonite and deposited in roll fronts mode within a reducing environment of Paleocene, arkosic, carbonaceous conglomerates and sandstones of the Boulder Creek Basin. The property is located in the southeastern Seward Peninsula, Alaska, 160km northeast of Nome, and 16 km north of the village of Elim and tidewater.

Previous operators completed 3,300m of core drilling in 52 holes and about 60m of near-surface split tube sampling in 21 holes, focused on the Discovery Zone area. Surface grab samples reported by previous operators returned up to 34% U3O8. A resource estimate completed in 1981 by Houston Oil and Minerals outlined a resource of 1 million pounds of U3O8 in zones with an average grade of 0.27% U3O8 and an average thickness of 3 meters. This resource was completed prior to NI 43-101, has not been independently audited and should therefore not be relied upon. The historic resource occurs within a 1,000m by 100m area, with depths ranging from the surface to 120m within a northwest trending mineralized zone.

The 6,720 acre McCarthy Marsh Property is an additional roll-front target, staked to cover prospective basin rocks adjacent to Tertiary granites, approximately 15 kilometers southwest of the Boulder Creek Property.

Garnet Point and Full Metal are planning an airborne geophysical and radiometric survey to identify additional targets in the area, as well as surface soil and biogeochemical sampling to define drill targets.

Information contained in this release for the Boulder Creek and McCarthy Marsh Properties was reviewed by Robert McLeod, M.Sc., P.Geo. Vice-President of Exploration for Full Metal Minerals and a Qualified Person as defined by NPI 43-101.

Garnet Point is expanding its focus to include Uranium and base metal exploration with the addition of the the Boulder Creek and McCarthy Marsh Properties to its current portfolio of properties which include the Arcadia, Mac and Cache Properties in Nunavut optioned from Full Metal Minerals Ltd.

Garnet Point will begin a 1,500-metre diamond drilling program in July, 2005, at the Arcadia property, located in Nunavut. Drilling will step out from previous intercepts at the GHX vein including - 29 g/t Au over 5.6 metres and 12 g/t Au over 23.1 metres. At Arcadia, over 20 veins/structures with over five-gram-per-tonne-Au samples have been discovered to date. Garnet Point has an option to earn a 51-per-cent interest in the Arcadia property from Full Metal.

Article Excerpt: Gold-MiningStocks.com Reports – Industry Expert Forecasts For Gold Stock Investment Strategies

Stock market investors in the gold mining sector should be aware of three areas of focus when planning an investment strategy. The three interconnected financial metrics of: US dollar fluctuations, production costs for mining corporations, and exploratory activity, each affect the market in different ways and the following report outlines the type of environment that market participants are forecasting for this industry.

Investors in the gold sector should take note of the supply and demand dynamic. “The supply dynamic has been challenged due to the lack of investment and exploration when the gold price was low,” said Greg Martin, Director, Investor Relations with Placer Dome (TSX, NYSE: PDG). “It was expected that if the price of gold went over $450/oz then new projects would materialize and the market would be revitalized. The reality however is that the US is a small proportion of global supply, and we have seen reductions from companies based in other countries. Therefore the supply side of the market will remain challenged.”

Conversely, according to recent demand numbers (collated by Goldfields Mineral Services), demand was robust in 2004, up about 6% on a global basis, showing that the fundamental gold market is in a very positive position for continued longer term strength. Investors realize that gold is also a financial instrument, trading off of other financial metrics than merely supply and demand, and due to the state of the US economy, this environment provides a very positive macroeconomic backdrop to the gold market. Placer Dome’s Martin stated that these parameters are currently aligned in terms of being supportive to the gold market.

“Production costs and ore grade are the major considerations for a company in the gold mining industry,” said Marc Cernovitch, V.P. of corporate Development with Halo Resources (HLOSF.OB). “Small scale mines, are very sensitive to the intensive upfront capital requirements. It is most important to engineer an optimum production scenario, which ensures that the operation is mining the highest possible grade of ore. Narrow vein gold mines in general, need to focus on selective small scale mining methods and allowing a mine to produce at its natural rate.”

“We think that the gold price is consolidating at the moment and will continue to track the US dollar,” said Running Fox (TSX-V: RUN) President, Michael Meyers. We believe that the US dollar is going to be on a further decline as the US is looking to pay back debt (originated when the dollar was high) in lower valuated dollars. Gold is still a profitable market to be in.”
