CanAlaska Identifies Multiple Uranium Zones North East Athabasca Project, Saskatchewan

Canalaksa Ventures has defined fourteen anomalous zones.

Vancouver, BC (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) August 30, 2021 -- CanAlaska Ventures Ltd. (TSX.V-CVV: OTCBB-CVVLF) www.canalaska.com, Toll Free 1.800.667.1870, is pleased to report the first quantitative results from uranium exploration and sampling at the Company's North East Athabasca Project. This large project consists of 490,340 acres (1984 km2) and straddles the Saskatchewan-Manitoba border. Athabasca sandstone outliers to the west and south (Reilly Basin) indicate the strong possibility that this area was once covered by Athabasca sandstone. The North East Project exploration licenses cover the northern extension of the Wollaston Belt, which underlies all of the major uranium mines in the eastern Athabasca Basin.

This summer the Company has carried out detailed lake sediment sampling over the entire license area, and is awaiting results on the majority of the 1,900 individual lake samples. Previous exploration work in the North East Project area in the late 1970s identified uranium boulder trains and uranium-rich lake sediments. CanAlaska's current program of surface follow-up and prospecting with a field staff of 15 geologists and prospectors has led to the discovery of new areas of mineralised boulders and outcrops.

Canalaska Ventures has defined fourteen anomalous zones. Of these, seven have had previous exploration, and seven are either new zones or significant additions to previous work. The geochemical results obtained from the early part of this year's survey of six of the zones are tabulated below. An extensive boulderfield in the Hook Lake Zone has uranium values from 0.2% to 3.65% U3O8 (4lb – 73 lb / ton U3O8), and is located south of mineralised outcropping zones of pelitic gneiss which have returned preliminary values from 0.31% to 0.81% U3O8 (6.2 – 16.2 lb / ton U3O8). Significant molybdenum mineralisation is associated with most samples, along with occasional higher gold values. These priority areas are now receiving detailed follow-up exploration by the Company's field crews to establish drill testing priorities.See

Highlights:

* Extensive uranium mineralisation in basement immediately to north of Athabasca contact

* Uranium boulder trains 0.2% to 3.65 % U3O8 on surface

* 14 target zones, with 6 priority zones identified

* Blanket coverage with over 1,900 lake sediment samples

* New outcrop discoveries of 0.31% to 0.81% uranium from current work

About the Athabasca Basin

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 over 30% of the world's supply of uranium. 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 the discovery of other deposits remains high. Peter Dasler, President of CanAlaska, has noted that “before commencing our staking program, CanAlaska carried out a comprehensive analysis of existing geological and geophysical data, and the Company has identified and acquired properties that are well located and have considerable potential. The results of our initial airborne surveys have produced targets which support this potential.” 83

The Company and its shareholders are positioned for what CanAlaska believes will be the largest expansion in uranium exploration since the 1970s. Harry Barr, Chairman of CanAlaska has stated, “CanAlaska holds one of the largest uranium exploration portfolios in the Athabasca Basin and is actively exploring its properties”.

About CanAlaska Ventures Ltd.

CanAlaska is a mineral exploration company concentrating on exploration for uranium in the Athabasca Basin of Saskatchewan, Canada, where the Company has recently assembled a large land package (over 1,650,000 acres).

New Software Provides Plant Engineering and Facility Management Groups a Robust Paperless Inspection and Reporting Solution

Comprehensive, yet intuitive software provides an industrial grade replacement to traditional paper based inspection systems.

Hayward, Calif. (PRWEB) August 30, 2021 --Vorpalware, a software development group focused on mobility solutions for business, today announced the release of the PlantLog software solution, which provides a complete end to end paperless inspection and reporting tool for accurately collecting and analyzing equipment status readings and other facility observations.

The PlantLog solution aims to dramatically improve efficiency by reducing the time needed to perform inspections and the administrative work of archiving, retrieving and compiling collected logs as well as providing a simplistic yet insightful means of visually trending data to assist with critical decision making for maintenance and process improvement.

“The emergence of the global economy and a trend of operational budget reductions has been putting pressure on facility managers to identify areas that could be modified in order to obtain greater optimization and efficiency” said Jim Duffy, President and Founder of Vorpalware. “While a standard paper based inspection system satisfies the need of taking actual readings, it does little to ensure the data is complete and accurate and provides no means of analyzing historical data to locate potential bottlenecks, redundancies or other areas that could be enhanced by altering its process.”

Groups can now replace traditional paper and hand written inspection systems by using rugged barcode enabled PDA’s that identify equipment and present the operator with a list of readings to take in a clear and concise manner while ensuring readings are taken within normal operational thresholds. Engineers can then view a component’s complete history with just a few mouse clicks, filter the inspections by a given date range, generate graphical charts and reports or export the data as a standard spreadsheet for sharing with external parties or regulatory agencies.

“We have been a part of the Vorpalware pilot program for over a year now and have found it to be a compelling alternative to our archaic paper based setup.” Said Neal Pearson, Engineering Manager at the Children’s Hospital of Central California. “The ability to trend recorded metrics provides us with valuable insight into our current and future plant conditions while the ability to assemble logs has significantly reduced administrative time in preparing JCAHO report submissions.”

The PlantLog product includes the following capabilities:

* Automatic equipment identification through barcode labels scanned from PDA
* Date, time and operators name are automatically attached to each inspection record
* Optional notes can be entered for each inspection.
* Warnings alert operator when a reading was taken outside of optimal ranges.
* Readings outside of optimal ranges are automatically displayed in red when viewing historical data
* User permissions feature to designate who can edit the inspection dataset, view historical data or perform actual inspections.
* Networked environment to allow multiple users to view inspection data
* Print out historical inspection data or export to Microsoft Excel
* Filter historical data by any given date range
* Create and memorize graphical charts for data analysis
* Quickly find all instances of a given value for an individual reading

Vorpalware provides PlantLog as a complete turn key solution that includes all PDA hardware, barcode labels, software and installation support. No other external dependences are required including database servers and reporting tools, which are integrated in the PlantLog software.

Pricing and Availability:
The PlantLog solution is immediately available direct from Vorpalware and is licensed on a ‘per site’ basis. Licenses are $5,695 for commercial users and $4,556 for non profit and government entities, plus the cost of PDA terminals at ~$800 each.
Multi license discounts are available as well as an evaluation package by request.

Precision Castparts Corp. To Acquire Special Metals Corporation In Accretive Transaction

PORTLAND, Oregon – August 26, 2021 – Precision Castparts Corp. (NYSE: PCP) has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Special Metals Corporation (SMC), a world leader in the production of high-performance nickel-based alloys and super alloys, for approximately $540 million in cash, including the repayment of SMC’s outstanding debt.

“The acquisition of Special Metals clearly meets all of our criteria for profitable growth and will be instrumental in driving Precision Castparts to new levels of performance” said Mark Donegan, chairman and chief executive officer of Precision Castparts Corp. (PCC). “First and foremost, it will provide us with an internal supply of nickel-based billet for our Forged Products operations, enabling us to manage our overall value stream more cost effectively from raw material to forged component. Other than producing some billet at our WASA facility in Australia, we are currently buying all of our billet on the outside. As the leading user of premium-grade nickel in the world, we can see significant top- and bottom-line benefits through increasing SMC’s volume, improving their yields, and decreasing the overall lead time to the marketplace.

“Synergies are also central to the SMC story,” Donegan continued. “Like Wyman-Gordon and SPS Technologies, SMC is an asset-intensive, process-driven, manufacturing business with many upside performance opportunities. We introduced PCC’s process control and productivity tools into Wyman-Gordon and SPS, driving significant bottom-line improvements throughout their operations. Those cost savings continue on a daily basis. With the same approach, the same tools, and the same disciplined focus, we fully expect the same type of integration success with SMC.

“Improved operational performance drives market penetration and sales increases,” Donegan said. “In addition, SMC will both strengthen and diversify our sales profile. Along with holding well-established positions in aerospace and power generation, SMC manufactures a comprehensive small-diameter pipe product line, which will enable us to continue our successful penetration of the seamless, extruded pipe market. The ability to offer these products with Wyman-Gordon’s large-diameter pipe will dramatically expand the breadth of our product line and create a much greater opportunity for us to bid on larger portions of projects. And, as with Wyman-Gordon and SPS, SMC opens up new opportunities for us in adjacent markets, such as the chemical, oil and gas, and pollution control industries, all of which present exciting growth potential. Overall, we view SMC as a key platform for organic growth, with future performance improvements comparable to those we’ve achieved and continue to achieve with our most recent acquisitions.”

The acquisition will be immediately accretive to earnings, before the impact of synergies. PCC expects to realize synergies of $10 million to $15 million in the first 12-15 months following closing of the transaction, with annual synergies reaching $30 million to $40 million in the out years, as well as significant cash generation opportunities as SMC is brought more in line with the working capital levels of PCC’s current metal-melting operations.

PCC will finance the acquisition with cash on hand and its existing credit facilities, which currently have undrawn capacity of approximately $550 million, while continuing to retain a strong balance sheet. As with the Wyman-Gordon and SPS acquisitions, PCC expects to realize significant cost reductions and synergies in SMC in the near term, along with strong cash generation from base operations, driving rapid repayment of acquisition debt and assuring a strong balance sheet and credit profile going forward.

The transaction has been approved by the boards of both companies, as well as by holders of more than 90 percent of the common stock of SMC, and is not subject to a financing contingency or approval by PCC’s shareholders. Subject to regulatory approvals, including Hart-Scott-Rodino, the transaction is anticipated to close in the third quarter of fiscal 2006.

Citigroup Global Markets served as financial advisor to PCC, Stoel Rives LLP served as legal counsel to PCC, and Jones Day served as legal advisor to SMC.

Major Mining Contractor Orders Second Advanced Equipment Training Simulator

Indonesia’s largest domestic mining contractor, PT Pamapersada Nusantara (Pamapersada), has renewed its commitment to simulator-based training with the purchase of a second Advanced Equipment Simulator from Australian manufacturer Immersive Technologies.

(PRWEB) August 20, 2021 -- Indonesia’s largest domestic mining contractor, PT Pamapersada Nusantara (Pamapersada), has renewed its commitment to simulator-based training with the purchase of a second Advanced Equipment Simulator from Australian manufacturer Immersive Technologies.

The contractor will employ the Immersive Technologies Series 2B Advanced Equipment (AE) Simulator at the 3.5 million tonnes per annum Bontang thermal coal mine in East Kalimantan.

Pamapersada, part of the diversified industrial group PT United Tractors, bought its first Immersive Technologies AE Simulator in July, 2004. The simulator is integral to training of some 300 personnel a year at Indonesia’s largest export coal mine, Adaro, in South Kalimantan. A similar number of operators are expected to be trained with the aid of the AE Simulator at Bontang.

Pamapersada cited the flawless commissioning of its first training simulator as a factor in the follow-up purchase. As well as improving the speed and efficiency of operator training, the technology allows mine and fleet owners to assess and compare trainee dump truck and other equipment operators with performance benchmarks set by more experienced personnel.

Pamapersada’s decision to extend its use of AE Simulators in the Indonesian coal industry continues a trend which has seen other large mining contractors such as PT Thiess Indonesia, Roche Mining and Thiess ( Australia) adopt the technology. It also underlines the importance companies are attaching to advancing operator skills, safety and equipment utilisation in regions with finite skilled labour resources. Immersive AE Simulators are used extensively at sites such as Kaltim Prima, Batu Hijau and Grasberg, in Indonesia.

Executive Director for Immersive Technologies, Wayde Salfinger, said "the smooth commissioning of Pama’s first AE Simulator at Adaro could be attributed partly to a high level of communication between Immersive Technologies and Pamapersada."

“Adaro liaised very effectively to ensure the process was as smooth as possible,” Mr Salfinger said.

“On the ground assistance from Adaro staff saw the AE Simulator fully assembled and functional in record time. The simulator was ready for training within hours of support personnel arriving on site.

About Immersive Technologies
Established in 1993, Immersive Technologies is the leading global provider of operator training Simulators to the mining and earthmoving industries.

With more than 65 AE simulators deployed in 14 countries around the world, the company’s simulators are integral to the operations of many world-leading mining companies who use the technology to improve operational safety and efficiency while driving down maintenance costs.

Immersive Technologies’ exclusive alliances with several leading original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) ensures its extensive range of AE simulators achieve a superior level of realism and accuracy through the use of exclusively licensed proprietary data and machine technical information from the OEM.

Immersive Technologies Chief Executive Officer Peter Salfinger said the company was committed to providing equipment simulator training products that increased the safety and profitability of customers.

The company’s expanding customer support base includes offices in Australia and the USA.

Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) August 20, 2021 -- Running Fox Resource Corp. (TSX VENTURE: RUN) Wayne Waters, on behalf of the Board of Directors reports: High Impact Alberta Natural Gas Down-Spacing Horizontal Well Proceeding.

As previously announced, the Company had elected to participate as to a 30% gross interest in the first Section of its Pincher Creek Gas Field Leasehold., with Choice Resources (TSXV - CZE) of Calgary, Alberta as the operator. After payout, the interest converts to a 15% net interest.

The first well in the program at 1-5-3 of 28 is a horizontal well currently drilling at 2,212 metres, with Precision Drilling Rig #645. Total well depth is 4,579 metres, including the horizontal leg.

The well is a down-spacing exploitation well, with a potential resource base between 30 billion cubic feet and 80 billion cubic feet. Possible production rates are targeted to be between 10 and 35 Mmcf/day plus btu-rich liquid condensates.

A comparable well located just north at 6 -19 has produced almost 75 billion cubic feet to date and continues at 1.2 Mmcf approx. per day.

All equipment, separators, and facilities are in place and as this is a down-spacing well, the gas pipeline is currently operational and within 50 metres of the drill rig. Natural gas is currently $9.68 per mbtu spot price, and slightly lower for September delivery.

The Pincher Creek Gas Field Leasehold Option covers 27 additional sections and encompasses numerous development and exploration targets, in addition to the existing Section being earned by participating in the down-spacing exploitation well.

Cheer Up: 2006 Pay Budget Survey from Business & Legal Reports, Inc. Forecasts a Bigger Pay Raise Headed Your Way

BLR’s new 2006 Pay Budget Survey forecasts a 4.0% pay increase for exempt office workers, the first time that figure has hit 4.0% in several years.

Old Saybrook, CT (PRWEB) August 18, 2021 -– A new salary survey finds that compensation managers are feeling optimistic, and that could mean good news in your paycheck. Business & Legal Reports, Inc. (BLR) has just released its 2006 Pay Budget Survey, which predicts that the national average merit increase for exempt office employees will hit 4.0% in 2006 (up from 3.7% in 2005). Non-exempt office workers (those who must be paid overtime) will see average increases of 3.8%.

More than 1100 organizations participated in BLR’s July 2005 pay survey. Projected merit increases are greater this year for three of the four employee categories surveyed. Unionized plant workers, however, will see merit increases smaller in 2006 than in 2005 (2.9% vs. 3.1%). Non-union plant workers will fare better, with a projected 3.5% increase in 2006 vs. 3.2% a year ago.

Susan Schoenfeld, J.D., editor at Compensation.BLR.com, commented on the results of BLR’s survey of planned 2006 pay increases: “BLR’s annual salary forecast is an important indicator of how companies feel about the economy and labor trends. By projecting merit increases to go up in 2006 they seem to be saying that the non-union labor market will continue to be strong in 2006, and that their organizations are healthy enough to pay for those raises.”

For the second year in a row the BLR 2006 Pay Budget Survey projects that the Central/Rocky Mountain/Southwest region will provide the highest merit pay increases in the country, where exempt employees will get increases of 4.4% (vs. 3.9% in 2005). The lowest planned merit increases are projected for union plant workers in the Northeast/Middle Atlantic region at 2.3%.

Precision Castparts Corp. Stock Will Split Two for One

PORTLAND, Oregon – August 17, 2021 – The Precision Castparts Corp. (NYSE:PCP) board of directors has approved a two-for-one split of its common stock in the form of a stock dividend.

Mark Donegan, chairman and chief executive officer of Precision Castparts Corp. (PCC), announced the stock split today at the annual shareholders meeting in Portland, Oregon. Shareholders of record as of August 29, 2021 will receive one additional share of common stock for each share of common stock held on the record date. The new shares will be issued on September 8, 2005. The board also set September 16, 2021 as the record date for the quarterly dividend, to be paid on October 3, 2005, in the amount of $0.03 per share. The Board’s action to retain the dividend at $0.03 per share on a post-split basis effectively doubles PCC’s dividend payout.

“Now is an excellent time to emphasize our strong confidence in PCC’s continued profitable growth,” said Donegan. “We split the stock five years ago, only nine months after acquiring Wyman-Gordon and driving that business to record performance levels. Today, the striking success of the SPS acquisition, coupled with vigorous growth in our major end markets and very promising opportunities for additional share gain, has propelled the stock to new highs. And, armed with a solid balance sheet, PCC is ideally positioned for even further upside in both sales and earnings.”

As of August 4, 2005, PCC had approximately 66.4 million shares of common stock outstanding.

Precision Castparts Corp. is a worldwide, diversified manufacturer of complex metal components and products. It serves the aerospace, power generation, automotive, and general industrial and other markets. PCC is the market leader in manufacturing large, complex structural investment castings, airfoil castings, and forged components used in jet aircraft engines and industrial gas turbines.

New Steel Rebar Mill Start Operation in Kuwait

The Kuwaiti group Al Sarraf, started production of steel rebars in their new factory " KUWAIT REINFORCED STEEL MANUFACTURING". The plant will produce reinforcing bars of 8 up to 32mm and has a yearly capacity of 180.000 tons.

(PRWEB) August 15, 2021 -- The Kuwaiti group Al Sarraf, started last month (July 2005) production of steel rebars in their new factory " KUWAIT REINFORCED STEEL MANUFACTURING".

The Al Sarraf group has been active since 1944 in Kuwait, as stockist of building materials (steel rebar – timber - cement) and also in real estate. They were importing up to 120.000 T / year of rebars mainly from Turkey.

The rolling line comes from Italy, while automation systems were supplied from India. The plant will produce reinforcing bars of 8 up to 32mm and has a yearly capacity of 180.000 tons.

Billets are presently imported from Turkey, Iran and bought locally from local billet producer Al Oula.

It is expected that factory will cater mainly to the Kuwaiti market, which is consuming about 800.000 T / year. Exports to neighboring countries are however also possible.

In Kuwait the only other rebar mill UNITED STEEL INDUSTRIAL CO (USIC) is presently producing about 550.000t/year.

Rebars are further imported from Saudi (Hadeed, Al Ittefaq and Capital Steel), Turkey and Iran. Saudi imports enter Kuwait without duty, being a GCC member, while Turkey and Iran imports are subject to an import duty of 5%.

KUWAIT REINFORCED STEEL MANUFACTURING plans to expand their activities into rebar cutting and bending and production of wire rod in a later stage.

Alchemy 2005 : How to Transmutate Silver or Lead Metals into Created 10KT Gold Coins

" Gold can be manufactured from other elements by several methods. The penultimate means of transmutation is the Philosophers' Stone ( maybe a radioactive stone ? lead + neutron bombardment into gold ) of any degree, but that is another matter altogether.

(PRWEB) August 15, 2021 -- " Gold can be manufactured from other elements by several methods. The penultimate means of transmutation is the Philosophers' Stone ( maybe a radioactive stone ? lead + neutron bombardment into gold ) of any degree, but that is another matter altogether.

The transmutation of silver to gold is perhaps the easiest -- or least difficult -- of such experiments. If nothing else, the attempt may serve to enlighten aspiring souffleurs

Alchemy 2005 : How to Transmutate Silver or Lead Metal into Created 10KT Gold Coins ? " Gold can be manufactured from other elements by several methods...The transmutation of silver to gold is perhaps the easiest -- or least difficult --" -------------------------------------------------- Facts on Lead Metal and its Transmutation into Gold (1) Lead metal has 82 protons & electrons and contains Gold in it already. (2) Lead metal will transmutate into Gold when bombarded with a source of neutrons. (3) It is alleged that Lead naturally transmutes into Gold over millions of years within a vein of quartz chrystals and the piezo electric effect interaction, like coal into diamonds. (4) Certain compounds when added to lead metal , will turn lead into golden color, see " yellow lead

§ 101. The Possibility of Making Gold

It does not seem unlikely that if it is possible to "degrade" elements, it may be possible to build them up. It has been suggested that it might be possible to obtain, in this way, gold from silver, since these two elements occur in the same column in the Periodic Table; but the suggestion still awaits experimental confirmation. The question arises, What would be the result if gold could be cheaply produced? That gold is a metal admirably adapted for many purposes, for which its scarcity prevents its use, must be admitted. But the financial chaos which would follow if it were to be cheaply obtained surpasses the ordinary imagination. It is a theme that ought to appeal to a novelist of exceptional imaginative power. However, we need not fear these results, for not only is radium extremely rare, far dearer than gold, and on account of its instability will never be obtained in large quantities, but, judging from the above-described experiments, if, indeed, the radium emanation is the true Philosopher's Stone, the quantity of gold that may be hoped for by its aid is extremely small.

§ 102. The Significance of "Allotropy."

A very suggestive argument for the transmutation of the metals was put forward by Professor Henry M. Howe, LL.D., in a paper entitled "Allotropy or Transmutation?" read before the British Association (Section B), Sheffield Meeting, 1910.

Certain substances are known which, although differing in their physical properties very markedly, behave chemically as if they were one and the same element, giving rise to the same series of compounds. Such substances, of which we may mention diamond, graphite and charcoal (e.g., lampblack) -- all of which are known chemically as "carbon" -- or, to take another example, yellow phosphorus (a yellow, waxy, highly inflammable solid) and red phosphorus (a difficultly-inflammable, dark red substance, probably possessing a minutely crystalline structure), are, moreover, convertible one into the other.It has been customary to refer to such substances as different forms or allotropic modifications of the same element, and not to regard them as being different elements. As Professor Howe says, "If after defining `elements' as substances hitherto indivisible, and different elements as those which differ in at least some one property, and after asserting that the elements cannot be transmuted into each other, we are confronted with the change from diamond into lampblack, and with the facts, first, that each is clearly

indivisible hitherto and hence an element, and, second, that they differ in every property, we try to escape in a circle by saying that they are not different elements because they do change into each other. In short, we limit the name `element' to indivisible substances which cannot be transmuted into each other, and we define those which do transmute as ipso facto one element, and then we say that the elements cannot be transmuted. Is not this very like saying that, if you call a calf's tail a leg, then a calf has five legs? And if it is just to reply that calling a tail a leg does not make it a leg, is it not equally just to reply that calling two transmutable elements one element does not make them so?

"Is it philosophical to point to the fact that two such transmutable elements yield but a single line of derivatives as proof that they are one element? Is not this rather proof of the readiness, indeed irresistibleness, of their transmutation? Does not this simply mean that the derivativeless element, whenever it enters into combination, inevitably transmutes into its mate which has derivatives?

According to the atomic theory the differences between what are termed "allotropic modifications" are generally ascribed to differences in the number and arrangement of the atoms constituting the molecules of such "modifications," and not to any differences in the atoms themselves. But we cannot argue that two such "allotropic modifications" or elements which are transmutable into one another
are one and the same element, because they possess the same atomic weight, and different elements are distinguished by different atomic weights; for the reason that, in the determination of atomic weights, derivatives of such bodies are employed; hence, the value obtained is the atomic weight of the element which forms derivatives, from which that of its derivativeless mate may differ considerably for all we know to the contrary, if we do, indeed, regard the atomic weights of the elements as having any meaning beyond expressing the inertia-ratios in which they combine one with another.

If we wish to distinguish between two such "allotropic modifications" apart from any theoretical views concerning the nature and constitution of matter, we can say that such "modifications" are different because equal weights of them contain, or are equivalent to, different quantities of energy, difference between two different elements -- such are different because equal weights of them contain or are equivalent to different quantities of energy. The so-called "allotropic modifications of an element," therefore, are just as much different elements as any other different elements, and the change from one "modification" to another is a true transmutation of the elements; the only distinction being that what are called "allotropic modifications of the same element" differ only slightly in respect of the energy they contain, and hence are comparatively easy to convert one into the other. whereas different elements (so called) differ very greatly from one another in this respect, whence it is to be concluded that the transmutation of one such element into another will only be attained by the utilisation of energy in a very highly concentrated form, such as is evolved simultaneously with the spontaneous decomposition of the radium emanation.

Gold Fever - Can Azco Mining Capture U.S. Gold's Midas Touch?

U.S. Gold Corp USGL stunned the investment world this month as its shares soared 625% since July 25, 2021 following a knockout one two punch of heavyweight investments that have literally knocked USGL out of the ball park in one of the most spectacular performances by any Gold related issue since the heady days of the last Gold boom.

Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) August 12, 2021 -- Gold Fever is back: As the yellow metal soars on the back of record Crude Oil prices with Thursday August 11, 2005, Gold reaching an important milestone, surpassing $450 in the December 2005 Active Futures Contracts and Gold in the long term future is already trading at a huge premium 4 years out at $532 in the Dec 2009 Contract.

Part of the reason for US Gold's rise - USGL - Its only asset is its Tonkin Springs property, a 37 Square Mile area, but this is estimated to contain a 1.4 Million ounce inferred gold resource. An inferred resource is a mineral find based on a few drill holes.

In contrast, Azco Mining - AZMN - has proven assets which include a 90 Square Mile, 57,392 acre resource in New Mexico said to hold 2 Million Ounces of contained Gold with a 1.03 Million Ounce open pit deposit and a 7 Square Mile Mica and Feldspathic Sand deposit that contains an estimated 88 Million tons of Ore and a proven reserve of over 4 Million tons. Azco's Gold property has hundreds of drill holes comprising over 369,000 feet of drilling and as a consequence, historically, mines on this property have already yielded 350,000 ounces of Gold.

A common vein shared by AZMN and USGL is that both companies have at their helm, seasoned executives of extraordinary reputation and talent in the mining industry who also, just so happen to be, the company's major shareholders respectively.

This is an incredibly positive statement of faith and commitment that will most certainly not be overlooked by investors as they assess a global economy, which has an ever increasing demand for Gold in a world with steadily diminishing supply.

In a recent interview Dr. Pierce Carson CEO of Azco Mining stated, "Out of the one million ounce deposit, we can expect over $100 million as a bottom line profit number."

Industry titan Barchart.com generated an unusually positive technical analysis based on 13 key technical indicators earlier this week which reflected their opinion of a 100% BUY rating for shares of AZMN. A copy of this analysis is available at http://cfrn.net.

Doe Run Supports CDC Recommendations For La Oroya

The Doe Run Company said Thursday it was encouraged by findings of a Centers for Disease Control report on health conditions in La Oroya, Peru, where Doe Run subsidiary Doe Run Peru operates a metallurgical plant.

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) August 11, 2021 -- The Doe Run Company said Thursday it was encouraged by findings of a Centers for Disease Control report on health conditions in La Oroya, Peru, where Doe Run subsidiary Doe Run Peru operates a metallurgical plant.

In the report the CDC said the top health-related priority was reducing lead emissions and called on all parties involved to work together to address current lead exposure issues as well as the historical contamination that predates Doe Run's 1997 purchase of the 80-year-old smelter.

A PowerPoint presentation on the agency's findings is available at http://www.doerun.com/uploadfile/La_Oroya_appendix_g.pdf. The full report can be viewed at http://www.cdc.gov/nceh/ehs/.

“We believe that the findings of the CDC's report validate our efforts to reduce emissions and address the concerns of our neighbors,” said Barbara Shepard, The Doe Run Company's vice president of human resources and community relations.

Shepard also noted that, in cooperation with the Peruvian government and the La Oroya community, Doe Run Peru has made significant progress on addressing health and environmental conditions in the Andean town. Much of it has been completed since the CDC's 2004 visit to La Oroya.

Advancements include reducing lead emissions from the main stack by more than 35 percent since 1998 and reducing total lead released into the nearby Mantaro River by more than 90 percent compared to 1994. In addition, she said, the company is working to complete eight of nine environmental projects on time, including a wastewater treatment plant and solid waste repositories.

Updates on Doe Run Peru's ongoing environmental progress are available at: http://www.doerun.com/uploadfile/peruprogressupdate-env.pdf.

“We support the CDC's recommendation that 'building the environmental public health infrastructure needed to develop and implement a comprehensive and integrated plan' is the first step in finding solutions,” Shepard added. “We also support the Peruvian Government's authority and expertise in making health policy and decisions, while acknowledging the government's responsibility for historical contamination. At the same time, more needs to be done and we are committed to doing so.”

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 practicing environmental stewardship 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.

Old Saybrook, CT (PRWEB) August 10, 2021 -- Delivering frequent safety training to workers is the only sure way to keep accidents from happening and the OSHA inspector at bay. But until now the difficulty of finding the time to research and deliver regular safety meetings has kept many managers from following that best safety practice. To make that training job easier, Business & Legal Reports, Inc. (BLR) has totally redesigned its two most popular safety training products – Safety Training Presentations in Microsoft PowerPoint® and Safety Meetings Library.

Safety Training Presentations – 25 complete, ready-to-go PowerPoint® training meetings
The new and improved version of this best-selling CD product now includes interactive exercises to involve trainees in the learning process. Another improvement is that it is now possible to make the training specific to any facility by easily customizing the meetings with photos or text. Safety Training Presentations also includes an easy to follow trainers guide, detailed PowerPoint slides, and reproducible handouts and quizzes.

Safety Meeting Library – New formats and “Training Approaches”
This exhaustive resource on CD features almost 300 complete meetings on every conceivable safety and OSHA topic – from Asbestos to Workers Compensation - and in every popular training format. A new “Choose a Training Approach” feature represents a training breakthrough - for the first time trainers can select training meetings tailored to specialized training needs. “Training Approaches” include: OSHA-mandated, new employee, refresher, comprehensive, and hands-on training meetings.

Solomon Completes Geophysics Program and Confirms Drill Targets at Bayantsagaan Gold Project, Mongolia

Solomon Resources Ltd. (SRB:TSX-V) today announced the results of ground geophysics surveys from the Bayantsagaan Gold Project in north central Mongolia. The project is located 35 km southwest of the Boroo Gold Mine which is operated by Centerra Gold. The style of gold mineralization and alteration at Bayantsagaan is similar to the Boroo deposit (10.2 Mmt @ 3.52 g/t Au, 1.16 M oz). The Bayantsagaan project covers 5,648 hectares, and has excellent infrastructure and access. The ground geophysics program commenced in late June (Solomon News Release dated June 22, 2021) to evaluate the distribution of gold mineralization which may occur with sulphide minerals, that can be detected by this type of survey. Solomon can earn a minimum 80% interest in Bayantsagaan, and 19 additional projects, from Gallant Minerals Ltd.

Vancouver, Canada (PRWEB) August 10, 2021 -- Solomon Resources Ltd. (SRB:TSX-V) today announced the results of ground geophysics surveys from the Bayantsagaan Gold Project in north central Mongolia. The project is located 35 km southwest of the Boroo Gold Mine which is operated by Centerra Gold. The style of gold mineralization and alteration at Bayantsagaan is similar to the Boroo deposit (10.2 Mmt @ 3.52 g/t Au, 1.16 M oz). The Bayantsagaan project covers 5,648 hectares, and has excellent infrastructure and access. The ground geophysics program commenced in late June (Solomon News Release dated June 22, 2021) to evaluate the distribution of gold mineralization which may occur with sulphide minerals, that can be detected by this type of survey. Solomon can earn a minimum 80% interest in Bayantsagaan, and 19 additional projects, from Gallant Minerals Ltd.

Historic work by a joint Mongolian-Hungarian geological expedition identified a chargeability anomaly, that coincided with areas of gold mineralization at surface. The joint expedition completed four vertical diamond drill holes along the north end of the chargeability anomaly. Drill logs and assays reported significant gold mineralization and alteration . Historic assays results contained strongly anomalous gold values, which have not been confirmed with modern analyses, due to the absence of the historic drill cores.

Solomon completed a ground magnetics and gradient array induced polarization survey covering 50 line kilometres of grid, to evaluate the distribution and relative concentration of sulphide minerals. The survey utilized 100m spaced grid lines, covering an area of five square kilometers. The survey results have confirmed the presence of a strong chargeability anomaly that coincides with areas of outcropping gold mineralization, identified by the historic geological expedition and confirmed by recent Gallant surface sampling. The chargeability anomaly also coincides with the location of historic mineralized drill holes. Solomon completed four lines (8 km) of dipole-dipole induced polarization surveys to evaluate the shape and depths of the strongest chargeability zones.

The main chargeability anomaly from gradient I.P. data is over 1000m along strike and 500m in width. The attached map covers the main target area of the survey, and shows the imaged gradient array chargeability data, with the locations of the historic drill holes, and gold values from recent samples collected and analysed by Gallant. Rock sample analyses are primarily from grab samples and chip samples collected from outcrops and trenches. The areas contains a small percentage of outcrop (less than 20%), because much of the area is covered by transported surface material (soils, alluvium, and talus). These results indicate the area has good potential to host a significant gold deposit, based on the size of the chargeability anomaly, and its proximity to surface. The average gold content of the chargeability zone is not known, but will be evaluated with drilling.

Solomon Drilling Program

Solomon is now finalizing plans for a 1500m drilling program, to begin during August. The program will include 6-8 holes, twinning at least one of the historic holes, and testing the main chargeability zone. Drilling will be conducted with diamond drilling.

METALFORM Trade Shows Report Growth

CLEVELAND, OH—August 8, 2005—METALFORM, the most highly focused metalforming and fabricating event in the industry, has seen an increase in both the number of exhibitors and square-foot space since launching its biennial strategy in 2003. METALFORM Chicago, a large equipment show held in odd years, experienced a 23% increase in exhibitors between the 2003 and 2005 shows – nearly doubling the trade show industry average.

Regional METALFORM shows, which alternate with the Chicago show in even years and offer exhibitors limited booth sizes and lower cost, debuted in Louisville, Kentucky in 2004. The 40,000 net square foot floor plan sold out a month before the show and sparked a record 72 first-time exhibitors. Building on that success, Regional METALFORM 2006 in Nashville, Tennessee, is slated to sell 50,000 net square feet – 25% larger than Louisville. With more than seven months left before the show, 64% of the floor space is already occupied.

Also in 2004, METALFORM launched the third leg of its strategy in Mexico City, where 40 exhibitors representing 66 companies occupied approximately 6,800 net square feet of the World Trade Center. METALFORM Mexico 2005 in Monterrey has already sold more than 11,000 net square feet, with 64 exhibitors representing 104 companies – a 60% increase over the Mexico City show.

METALFORM’s overall growth reflects the findings from a recent study conducted by event marketing firm The George P. Johnson Co. and the Meeting Professionals Intl. Foundation. The study found that 53.5% of the corporate marketing professionals surveyed spend more on trade shows than on other event types – a 15% increase from 2004. One-third of those surveyed also reported that trade shows provide the best return on investment of all event types.

These findings also support results from Tradeshow Week’s November 2004 corporate exhibitor survey, in which 30% of respondents said that they planned to increase their exhibiting budgets for 2005. With METALFORM’s two-year show strategy effectively covering the entire North American metalforming market, exhibitors will have a choice as to where that money will be spent. The show will continue to track growth in both the number of exhibitors and square-foot space for all three shows. For more information on all METALFORM trade shows visit www.metalform.com.

METALFORM is sponsored by the Precision Metalforming Association (PMA), the full-service trade association representing the $41-billion metalforming industry of North America. Members companies are located in 30 countries, with the majority found in North America―in 41 states of the United States as well as Canada and Mexico.

Solomon Explores Chandmani Gold Project, Mongolia

Solomon Resources Ltd. (SRB:TSX-V) today announced it has initiated exploration on the Chandmani Gold Project, located in northwest Mongolia. The property is comprised of four mineral licenses, totalling 29,073 hectares, located roughly 110km southeast of the regional capital of Khovd. Chandmani is one of 20 properties that Solomon has obtained from Gallant Minerals (see News Release dated April 19th, 2005). Solomon can earn a minimum 80% interest in the property.

Vancouver, Canada (PRWEB) August 6, 2021 -– Solomon Resources Ltd. (SRB:TSX-V) today announced it has initiated exploration on the Chandmani Gold Project, located in northwest Mongolia. The property is comprised of four mineral licenses, totaling 29,073 hectares, located roughly 110km southeast of the regional capital of Khovd. Chandmani is one of 20 properties that Solomon has obtained from Gallant Minerals (see News Release dated April 19th, 2005). Solomon can earn a minimum 80% interest in the property.

Two separate areas of mineralization were identified by Gallant. Intrusive-hosted gold mineralization is present in the Chandmani prospect (northwest area), and porphyry/skarn hosted copper - gold mineralization is present at Yembuu Tolgoi (central area). At Chandmani, high grade gold values, up to 70 g/t Au, were reported by Gallant from vein zones hosted within and adjacent to a quartz-sericite-pyrite altered alkalic intrusion. The altered intrusive is approximately 70m wide and has been traced over a 3.5km strike length. Quartz-veins containing visible gold, pyrite, and chalcopyrite, occur within the altered intrusion, and the adjacent altered country rocks, which are composed of metamorphosed clastic sedimentary rocks. Initial sampling by Gallant produced a high percentage of anomalous gold values (see attached map).

The Yembuu Tolgoi area contains garnet-calcite and magnetite-calcite skarn bodies, hosted within folded limestone, near the contact with intermediate to felsic intrusives. Copper mineralization with elevated gold values is present in the skarns. Copper occurs as malachite, chrysocolla, chalcopyrite and tenorite. Massive chalcopyrite seams and blebs are also reported by Gallant. The adjacent intrusives contain disseminated sulfides, quartz-chalcopyrite veining, and copper oxides within potassium feldspar – epidote – magnetite alteration zones over unspecified areas. Quartz veins are also present, adjacent to intrusives, with gold values reported up to 6 g/t.

Solomon’s program will consist of initial re-sampling of mineralized areas, for confirmation of reported results. The size and shape of mineralized areas will be determined by mapping and additional sampling will be completed to characterize mineralization. Geochemical and geophysical programs will be planned based on the results of the field examination. A drilling decision will be made based on results of the surface program.

Most Environmental Pros at Enviro.BLR.com Feel Their Emergency Planning is not up to Snuff

With the hurricane season here and less than a year after the deadly tsunamis in Asia, it is surprising that a majority of EHS professionals in a recent Enviro.BLR.com poll feel that their facilities’ emergency planning is not ready to handle a natural disaster

Old Saybrook, CT (PRWEB) August 4, 2021 -- In the midst of an active hurricane season and less than a year after the deadly tsunamis in Asia, a majority of EHS professionals feel that their facilities' emergency planning is not ready to handle a natural disaster, according to an online poll conducted by Enviro.BLR.com.

Fifty-six percent of respondents said “no” when posed the question “Do you think your facility is prepared for a natural disaster?” The poll was conducted July 14 to July 20 and had 151 participants.

“It is somewhat alarming to learn that there are so many facilities that don't have viable emergency response plans,” said Steve Quilliam, managing editor of Enviro.BLR.com, a website from Business & Legal Reports, Inc. (BLR). “Considering that such planning is required under multiple environmental and occupational safety and health regulations, and that there have been so news stories highlighting the need lately, these results are disappointing.”

Enviro. BLR.com's team of environmental compliance editors recommends that, at a minimum, facilities take the following steps:

* Identify vital records and create a backup for storage in a safe place.
* Train employees on what to do in the event of a disaster.
* Compile and make employees aware of a list of emergency telephone numbers.
* Inventory and repair all disaster response equipment.
* Identify emergency power requirements, and purchase a generator, if necessary.
* Determine computer requirements for employees who must maintain operations during a disaster.
* Verify that communications equipment is operational.
* Collect, label, and store emergency supplies.
* Ensure that your facility is in compliance with any legal or regulatory requirements (e.g., Resource Conservation and Recovery Act or OSHA regulations).

Copies of all EPA and OSHA emergency response regulation are available at Enviro.BLR.com. To help in the development of a disaster response plan, BLR is providing a free copy of its feature article “Emergencies: Readiness Makes a Difference” at the following link: http://www.blr.com/80502500/PRS38

Nevada Gold Mining Interest Shifts to Higher Grade Feeder Zones

Evolving Gold Corporation CEO Hopes to Repeat Success of Goldstrike and Sleeper High Grade Gold Discoveries

Sarasota, FL (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) August 3, 2021 -- Veteran minerals exploration geologist and Chief Executive of Evolving Gold (OTC BB: EVOGF), Dr. Lawrence Dick sees a shift in Nevada gold mining.

Instead of the typical low-grade bulk tonnage open pits, which define the world's third largest gold producing area, his company is now pursuing the higher grade feeder zones, hoping to find the higher gold grades found at Goldstrike or the former Sleeper gold mines.

Dr. Dick told STOCKINTERVIEW.COM, “In Canada, for example, most of the veins of gold deposits that have become underground mines are normally running on the order of 0.3 to 0.5 ounces per ton over 1.5 meters to two meters width. This can constitute an economic grade for these deposits.”

In a recent STOCKINTERVIEW.COM interview, Dr. Dick cited a high grade drill intersection of more than 2 ounces of gold per ton over five feet, discovered on Evolving Gold's Winnemucca Mountain property, as the compelling reason for a new drilling program in the company's Swordfish Extension Zone.

“We're looking for a high grade, vein-hosted gold deposit, much like the feeder zone at the Sleeper deposit.” From the time Santa Fe drilled Winnemucca Mountain until now, numerous low grade deposits were found to have feeder zones into them comprised of much higher grades of gold. “Most of their structures are veins,” he said. “You can only explore for those types of deposits by drilling angle holes and, normally, core holes.”

Research and Markets: Tightening Market Causes Increased Soda Ash Prices

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c21627) has announced the addition of a new Roskill report The Economics of Soda Ash to their offering.

(PRWEB) July 2, 2021 -- Dublin - Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c21627) has announced the addition of a new Roskill report The Economics of Soda Ash to their offering

A global upswing in soda ash prices since the second half of 2004 reflects a tightening market caused by a surge in demand, as well as increased energy and transportation costs. The tight conditions are expected to remain through to 2006, driven by high growth rates in China, which may continue through to 2010 in connection with construction projects related to the Olympic Games and the World Trade Fair in 2008 and 2010, respectively.

World consumption of soda ash in 2004 was an estimated 38Mt having grown by an average of 2.6%pa in recent years but is forecast to increase at a higher rate of 3-4%pa through to 2010. Glass will remain the main market for soda ash in the future, consuming an estimated 16-17Mt in 2004 and forecast to grow at around 3%pa through to 2010, driven more by flat glass (4%pa) than container glass (2%pa). Growth in flat glass has exceeded GDP in recent years because of high demand rates from the world's construction and automotive industries, especially those in China and other Asian countries. The more mature western markets are also experiencing growth, however, helped by the growing demand for value added products, such as solar reflective glass or enhanced security glass. Widespread recycling of cullet will have a direct impact on soda ash consumption in container glass, particularly in mature markets, as the use of cullet reduces the need for raw materials.

The key trends, issues and developments in the market are now analyzed in this major new report from Roskill. It provides a clear insight into all areas of the industry and an authoritative analysis of the prospects for the future.

Research and Markets: Demand for Perlite in Horticulture Continues to Grow

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c21630) has announced the addition of a new Roskill report The Economics of Perlite to their offering.

(PRWEB) August 2, 2021 -- Dublin - Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c21630) has announced the addition of a new Roskill report The Economics of Perlite to their offering

Annual world production of unexpanded perlite has increased by some 20% since 1997, principally driven by higher production in Greece, Turkey and China. Estimated world production of around 3.1Mtpy is believed to represent just 60% of installed production capacity. World consumption of unexpanded perlite was estimated at 2.7Mt in 2003, and is expected to increase at an average annualized rate of 1% over the next five years. There will, however, be major differences in regional rates of growth; overall demand in Asia is expected to grow by at least 3%pa while in China demand, largely based on use in building materials is expected to grow at 10%pa.

The decline in construction activity in Western Europe is forecast to have bottomed out and overall demand for perlite to 2010 will now increase at a rate of 2% per year. This forecast growth in Asia and Western Europe will be offset by a likely 0.5%pa decline in demand in the Americas, which currently account for 35% of world total consumption. While some perlite markets have been static or declining in the west there have been two areas where growth has been much stronger, particularly in North America. The use of perlite in horticulture continues to grow and there is an increasing demand for high value perlite microspheres as functional fillers in wallboard jointing compounds. Both World Minerals and Dicaperl, the major US producers, have acquired companies with microsphere production capacity and the number of plants producing perlite microspheres in China has grown from zero to over 20 between 2002 and 2005.

The key trends, issues and developments in the market are now analyzed in this major new report from Roskill. It provides a clear insight into all areas of the industry and an authoritative analysis of the prospects for the future.

The Filtration of Process Water, and Its Importance in the Petroleum Industry

The Petroleum industry is one of Ronningen-Petter's areas of expertise. Therefore, I feel that this paper--written by one of our employees, Craig Annable, and published by Hydrocarbon Engineering--would be of interest to you. Due to its length, this will be posted in five different articles: Introduction, Oilfield Production Site, Cooling and Amine Systems,Selecting the Right Filter, Disposable and Cleanable Filter Media.

(PRWEB) July 31, 2021 -- Upstream, downstream, and throughout the petroleum industry most discussions of filtration focus on the oil itself, and it is extracted from the wellhead and refined into saleable products. Yet throughout this process, a critical and consistent component is the use of water. Although the water quality required depends upon its end use, without filtration, unfiltered water can foul downstream equipment and contaminate catalysts. The result is increased maintenance and repair costs, a potentially downed system and lower conversion rates and process yields.

Filtering process water is very important due to its influence on process flow, its ability to protect downstream equipment/piping, and its significant role in the quality/value of finished goods. Hence, this can play a critical role in optimizing the refining process. The right filtration equipment can affect a company's environmental impact through the reduction of emissions and waste generation. It can also safeguard employees by minimizing their exposure to hazardous materials. These factors, in turn, affect the company's productivity and bottom line.

Despite its significance, many refineries have not realized the benefits of optimized filtration for process water. Installing a system where none has previously existed can be difficult to justify with tight capital budgets. Decision makers face the same challenge when a filtration system is in place and operating. However, a careful look at key cost factors can quickly justify an investment that will generate a significant return. In addition to minimizing overall maintenance costs, other factors include labor costs, the potential costs of lost production, conversion, and recovery of petroleum products during schedule and unscheduled downtime.

When exploring water treatment filtration options, another consideration is water conservancy. With an increased emphasis on reducing environmental impact, there is also an increased emphasis on reducing the amount of water used for industrial processes--especially freshwater. There are two ways to achieve this. One method is to use equipment that requires less fresh water. The second method is water reuse when the amount of water used is mandated by the process requirement. This trend is fuelled by several economic benefits that can be broken down into four separate and specific areas of cost savings:

• Reduced cost for purchase and treatment of fresh water
• Reduced cost for heating process streams or money saved through energy recovery.
• Reduced process losses of expensive and unspent catalyst fines that can be reintroduced and reused.
• Reducing waste treatment costs.
Any decision regarding filtration of water should be weighed against the relative importance of each of these factors.

The next article will examine some specific areas for water treatment within the petroleum industry, and some suggested solutions.
