Arrow Announces Test Results of RCE-2 Well

Ahead of expectation well test results, with additional zones identified

Article content

Calgary, Alberta–(Newsfile Corp. – May 18, 2022) – Arrow Exploration Corp. (AIM: AXL) (TSXV: AXL) (“Arrow” or the “Company“) is delighted to announce the results of the Rio Cravo Este-2 (“RCE-2“) well testing on the Tapir Block in the Llanos Basin of Colombia.

Article content

The RCE-2 well was spud on April 2, 2022. RCE-2 targeted a large, three-way fault bounded structure with multiple high-quality reservoir objectives on the Tapir Block in the Llanos Basin of Colombia. The well was drilled to a total measured depth of 9,600 feet and encountered six hydrocarbon bearing intervals totaling 90 net feet of oil pay.

Specific production test rates for the isolated zones (shallowest to deepest) include:

  • Carbonera C7 and C7 Stringer: tested 2,000 bopd (net 1,000 bopd) peak rate of 28 API crude. The zone was tested for 19 hours at an average rate of 1,199 bopd (net 600 bopd).
  • Gacheta C, C1 and C2: initial testing indicates productive capacity of 300 bopd (net 150 bopd) rate of 27 API crude. The zone was tested for 14 hours at an average rate of 115 bopd (net 58 bopd). Reserves have not been assigned to this zone previously.
  • Gacheta D: tested 680 bopd (net 340 bopd) peak rate of 14 API crude.
    The zone was tested for 33 hours at an average rate of 362 bopd (net 181 bopd).

Test results are not necessarily indicative of long-term performance or ultimate recovery.

Marshall Abbott, CEO of Arrow commented:

“We’re encouraged by the material results of RCE-2, the second well on the Tapir block. RCE-2 identified new zones for further exploitation with flowing results returning better than expected.”

“We’re currently completing the C7 zone, targeting to be on stream early next week. This effectively doubles Arrow’s production. The Company’s procedures will be to bring RCE-2 on slowly and increase production to best manage the oil reservoir.”

“We are now moving the rig to our next well location, the RCS-1 well, which is expected to spud before the end of May. Arrow’s current production exceeds 1,000 boe/d, producing positive cashflow for the Company during a high commodity price environment. This is an exciting time for Arrow, and we look forward to providing further updates on our progress.”

The RCE-2 well costs came in line with the budget.

Continued strong production rates from existing tied-in wells combined with the encouraging results from new drills in Columbia support the Company’s objective of achieving a production rate of 3,000 boe/d within 18 months of its AIM listing (completed in October 2021).

Hot Chili buoyed after nationalisation push rejected

Hot Chili’s Costa Fuego world class copper gold mine will employ thousands of Chilean workers and cement the country as the world’s leading copper producer.

Chilean resource developer Hot Chili has tabled a mineral resource upgrade with Canadian regulators for its exciting Costa Fuego copper gold discovery, at the same time the Chilean Congress watered down the possibility of constitutional change that spooked the local mining industry and could have impacted the development of Hot Chili’s world-class copper gold Costa Fuego project.

In February, Chile’s constituent assembly started thrashing out proposals for a new Constitution to replace the current market-focused one – proposals that included plans to nationalise mining and an expansion of environmental governance.

The raft of motions, led by environmental activists and others from the political left who were elected in the wake of protests that began in October 2019 over inequality has been causing some consternation in the world’s leading copper producer. After going to a vote, the proposals to overhaul the resource sector failed the reach the required two thirds majority in a final vote on Saturday. The result provides some immediate relief for local operators, including Hot Chili however it’s true – that battle is far from over.

Saturday’s vote does seem to confirm the draft constitution will lack a clear mandate for mining rights, however it also leaves legislation more vulnerable to changes in the future. That said, Hot Chili’s Managing Director Christian Easterday, says the political winds are blowing favourably in its direction.

We are very pleased with the recent news that the Chilean constitutional process has ended with virtually all proposals for radical change to the mining sector being rejected. Chile is one of the premier mining jurisdictions of the world and this latest news confirms that is not about to change anytime soon.

Chile is a leader in the global supply or critical future facing metals such as copper and lithium. Hot Chili and a raft of major developers are now able to advance with certainty in relation to mining regulation in Chile – a great outcome for the world’s push towards a decarbonised future.

Hot Chili’s Managing Director, Christian Easterday

The news is positive for Hot Chili that augmented its ASX listing with a C$30 million raise on the Toronto Stock Exchange listing in January this year as its fast tracks plans at Costa Fuego.

Looking ahead and perhaps of vital concern to the considerations being mulled over in the halls of Government in Chile, Managing Director Christian Easterday tipped the project to generate revenues around US$1 billion per year from producing around 100,000 tonnes per annum copper concentrate and 70,000 to 80,000 ounces of gold a year with a 20–30-year mine life.

With Costa Feugo’s capex tipped to be US$1.5 billion, Easterday said the revenue of US$1b per year was a very good return on investment.

The company is aiming to be in production within five years – a timetable Easterday is very comfortable with given its low altitude and proximity to port and export facilities.

Earlier this month Hot Chili upgraded the mineral resource estimate by an impressive 67 per cent to 725 million tonnes grading at 0.47 per cent copper equivalent for 2.8 million tonnes of contained copper and 2.6 million ounces of gold.

There are 80-90 employees currently on the Hot Chili payroll in the current exploration and development drilling phase, with a construction workforce forecast in excess of 2000. When mining operations commenced management said there would be a fulltime labour force of around 400.

Easterday is also supported by having one of the world’s largest copper traders, Glencore, as both a shareholder and as an offtake buyer. Notably, Glencore was only able to put its foot on 60 per cent of the Costa Fuego product leaving Hot Chili free to trade the balance for upside on the copper spot market. “You don’t often see deals like this,” he said.

Given the history of its exploration results, Hot Chili appears to be sitting on a couple of world class deposits. This fact, supported by the company having global gorilla Glencore on its register may combine to prove too compelling even for the vagaries of South American politics to deny…..watch this space.

Minnova Corp. and Minnova Renewable Energy Announce Restructuring Strategy and Future Green Hydrogen Production Site Selection

Article content

Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – May 17, 2022) – Minnova Corp. (TSXV: MCI) (OTC Pink: AGRDF) (“Minnova” or the “Company”), is an evolving resource development company with an exciting green hydrogen and cleantech innovation strategy to compliment our development-stage PL Gold Mine restart plan.

A New Green Energy Transition Vision

The adoption of Net Zero 2050 CO2 reduction commitments by Canada and many other countries has signaled a modern era green energy transition. As a result, green or renewable energy alternatives, to replace / reduce fossil fuel energy, are growing rapidly. In addition to CO2 reduction initiatives, recent geopolitical events have highlighted the need for energy security and in particular green energy security. These events are forecast to result in a fundamental change in the future production and consumption of energy. Our strategy is to position Minnova as a green energy industry leader through development of biomass gasification related technologies.

The first step in our green energy strategy was the announcement of the intent to acquire a proprietary biomass gasification technology (see Press Release 2021-12-13_NR.pdf (minnovacorp.ca)). Since then, Minnova has rapidly advanced our strategy for Minnova Renewable Energy based on discussions with industry (producers, equipment suppliers and consumers), policy makers and investors.

The next significant milestone is site selection for future commercial development. We are pleased to announce that the first site for a biomass gasification demonstration unit will be Swan River, Manitoba. Following detailed analysis and discussions we have arranged for initial feedstock supply and a well-located site to develop a demonstration unit. Key selection criteria included, abundant supply of sustainable forest and agricultural biomass residues, existing infrastructure that will facilitate rapid development and future expansion, an existing natural gas pipeline for possible injection and finally a supportive local community. On that point we have received a formal support letter and endorsement from the Swan River Council who commented “we are confident that the abundant forest and agricultural biomass supply and other development considerations, including; competitive utilities, skilled labor force and the availability of pro-business fiscal incentives and regulations that our region is uniquely positioned to support the Project to fruition.”

Article content

The demonstration unit will be design and built on a mobile platform for future marketing of our technology with on-site small-scale production. The demonstration unit will operate for up to 6 months and produce a marketable syngas rich in hydrogen (>50%). The syngas will be marketed as is and be purified to upgrade it to a pure hydrogen product. It is anticipated that multiple feedstocks will be tested to refine and confirm syngas quality and yield and enhance the gasification unit design in preparation for a Phase 1 commercial scale operation targeting initial production of up to 1.4 mln kg of pure Hydrogen per year. Following the completion of the demonstration unit it can be relocated to other sites in Canada and the United States with abundant sustainable biomass supply to demonstrate our technology’s ability to replace or reduce existing fossil fuel use with green hydrogen.

Minnova Renewable Energy also continues to advance its strategy internationally. Site selection initiatives are ongoing in other jurisdictions with abundant biomass residues and favourable green energy market support. Engagement with potential feedstock suppliers in Costa Rica and Romania has been well received and biomass gasification test work in underway to collect required data to incorporate into future commercial plant design. Both locations represent excellent targets for large scale, sustainable green hydrogen and/or green ammonia production with significant local industrial demand and access to North American and European markets.

Commitment to the Restart of the PL Gold Mine

We remain committed to the restart of the PL Gold Mine. The positive 2017 Feasibility Study confirmed the projects robust economics in support of a restart of operations. It also highlighted the projects significant gold price leverage (see Press Release https://minnovacorp.ca/MCI-Corporate-Update-July-30-2020-FINAL.pdf). Follow-on drilling programs demonstrated;

Achieving so many project milestones, supports management’s positive view for the future restart potential of the PL Gold Mine. However, current gold price volatility and lack luster investor interest in small cap gold exploration and development companies has been a challenge to adequately fund the projects development. Our development strategy for PL remains unchanged and we will continue to actively solicit M+A (JV, outright sale, or other restructuring options) in parallel with project financing initiatives.

Article content

PL is an attractive near-term gold production opportunity, located in a low-risk jurisdiction. Considering current high inflation and heightened geopolitical tensions there is a generally positive outlook for higher future gold price. With this in mind we strongly believe PL represents significant value and are committed to unlocking is value through restart or a transaction that maximizes current and future value for Minnova shareholders.

To summarize, the core tenants of our Strategic Plan are:

  • Advance Minnova Renewable Energy to commercial operations with development of proprietary biomass gasification technology. Demonstration units are planned for Manitoba, Central America, and Romania for 2022. In addition to a build, own operate model we will also look at a technology licensing model whereby we receive performance-related compensation for our biomass gasification technology licensed to other operators seeking to replace fossil fuels.
  • Continue to review innovative cleantech technologies that compliment our biomass gasification technology. The green energy transition offers many opportunities for production, storage, and delivery of green energy. We believe acquiring and developing innovative technologies across the entire biomass gasification value chain will enhance the Minnova Renewable Energy value proposition.
  • Access available funding dedicated to green energy transition in all targeted locations.
  • Continue to advance PL Gold Mine by putting in place appropriate funding, addition of dedicated senior mine development management, JV, sale, or other restructuring options.
  • Prepare for possible corporate restructuring of major business units (gold and green energy) into separate, distinct listed companies to maximize shareholder value.

Article content

Our Strategic Plan is intended to enhance leverage to gold price and our exposure to the green energy transition. We believe that both the PL Gold Mine and Minnova Renewable Energy strategy (green hydrogen / cleantech portfolio) will broaden investor interest, beyond our current shareholder base, improve access to capital and better reflect current and future market trends.

Gord Glenn, President & CEO commented “We are pleased with the rapid pace of Minnova Renewable Energy’s efforts to advance commercial development of biomass gasification in Canada and internationally. Response to our green energy transition vision has been extremely positive and with the announcement of our first demonstration unit, to be located in Swan River, we believe we are in a strong position to successfully transition to commercial production on a relatively short timeline. Our strategy contemplates a possible restructuring. Management and board do not believe our current share price in anyway reflects the value of our PL Gold Mine restart plan or Minnova Renewable Energy and we will aggressively pursue transactions to surface value of both businesses.”

ProMIS Neurosciences presents at the 2022 Neuro4D International Conference

ProMIS Neurosciences, Inc. (TSX: PMN) (OTCQB: ARFXF), a biotechnology company focused on the discovery and development of therapeutics targeting misfolded proteins such as toxic oligomers implicated in the development of neurodegenerative diseases, announced today its participation at the Neuro4D International Conference, held at the Atrium Hotel, Mainz, Germany, May 16-17th.

In the Conference session “From Disease Insights to Therapeutic Options” held on Monday, May 16th, Dr. Neil Cashman, ProMIS CSO and a member of the Conference Advisory Committee, delivered an oral presentation, entitled: “Abeta oligomers in Alzheimer’s disease: target engagement and target distraction.”

A large body of scientific data has implicated misfolded oligomers as the toxic molecular species of amyloid-beta (Abeta) relevant to Alzheimer’s disease (AD).  In his presentation, Dr. Cashman discussed the importance of selectivity for toxic Abeta oligomers in order to avoid “target distraction”, namely the absorption of antibodies by monomers which can reduce effective targeting of oligomers, and binding to plaque and vascular deposits which has been associated with adverse events such as brain edema.

The ProMIS proprietary computational platform allows for the design of conformational epitopes exposed on toxic, misfolded proteins but not on normal forms of the same protein. This discovery platform has been applied successfully to several targets for the generation of antibodies selective for misfolded proteins implicated in neurodegeneration.  As presented by Dr. Cashman, this process is exemplified by PMN310, a monoclonal antibody with selectivity for toxic Abeta oligomers that is being developed by ProMIS as a candidate for the treatment of AD.

 

The Neuro4D is an international conference on Neurodegenerative Disease Drug Discovery bringing together drug discovery companies, service and technology providers, and academic innovators in the field of proteopathic neurodegenerative diseases in a highly interactive format.

Synex Renewable Energy Announces Normal Course Issuer Bid

(MENAFN– Newsfile Corp) Synex Renewable Energy Announces Normal Course Issuer Bid

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – May 17, 2022) – Synex Renewable Energy Corporation (TSX: SXI) (Formerly, Synex International Inc.) (the ‘Company’ or ‘Synex’) is pleased to announce that the Toronto Stock Exchange (the ‘TSX’) has accepted a notice filed by Synex of its intention to make a normal course issuer bid (‘NCIB’).

The TSX notice provides that Synex may, during the 12-month period commencing May 19, 2022 and terminating May 18, 2023, purchase up to 200,575 of Synex’s common shares (‘Common Shares’), representing approximately 5% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares, by way of a NCIB on the TSX or through alternative trading systems. As of May 16, 2022, Synex had 4,011,511 outstanding Common Shares. Based on the average daily trading volume of 1,372 Common Shares during the last six months, daily purchases will be limited to 1,000 Common Shares, other than block purchase exceptions.

Purchases will be made on behalf of the Company by a registered broker through facilities of the TSX at prevailing market prices pursuant to the rules of the TSX governing normal course issuer bids and/or through alternative Canadian trading platforms or as otherwise may be permitted by applicable securities regulatory authorities. Synex has not repurchased any Common Shares in the past 12 months.

Decisions regarding the timing of future purchases of Common Shares will be based on market conditions, share price and other factors. Synex may elect to suspend or discontinue its NCIB at any time. Common Shares purchased under the NCIB will be cancelled. Synex believes that the market price of its Common Shares may, from time to time, not reflect the inherent value of the Company, and that purchases of Common Shares pursuant to the NCIB may represent an appropriate and desirable use of the Company’s funds. Therefore, Synex believes that it is in the best interest of the Company to proceed with the NCIB.

Pursuant to an automatic share purchase plan with its registered broker dated May 16, 2022 and effective on the commencement of the NCIB, Synex may, from time to time, when it does not possess material non-public information about itself or its securities, set certain pre-determined parameters to allow for the purchase of Common Shares at times when Synex ordinarily would not be active in the market due to its own internal trading blackout periods and insider trading rules.
