Kootenay Zinc Corp. (CSE: ZNK) (OTCQB: KTNNF) Exploration Expands as China Winds Down Refined Metals Production

Experts say China could soon look to import refined metal as its available zinc concentrate continues to fall, per a May 2013 Economic Times report (http://nnw.fm/v8PAW). The falling demand there for steel galvanization is partly to blame; a national crackdown on industrial pollution is helping to drive this decline as well. A decline in refined zinc output from 43,400 tonnes in March 2017 to 41,300 tonnes in April 2017 has been noted by the National Bureau of Statistics, and refined metal production has been affected by major mine closures in Australia and Ireland. In contrast to Chinese production cuts, Kootenay Zinc Corp. (CSE: ZNK) (OTCQB: KTNNF) has stepped up its exploration efforts to meet a global demand for zinc imports.

In a recent press release (http://nnw.fm/2k1MI), the company reported that China boosted its refined zinc imports 21 percent year-over-year while, according to Reuters, zinc ore and concentrates shipments rose 44 percent. These are just a few statistics proving the importance of Kootenay Zinc Corp.’s step up of zinc exploration. The Vancouver-based company is expanding its exploration program at its Sully Property, which is 18 miles east of one of the world’s largest mineral deposits, the legendary Sullivan Mine.

Although the renowned Sullivan Mine closed in 2001 after nearly 100 years in operation, geological data thus far suggests Kootenay Zinc’s Sully Project shares many of the same geological features. These are known for sedimentary exhalative, or SEDEX deposits, that fed the original mine’s 17 million tons of lead and zinc obtained over its operating life. Both locations also reside in the same basin; the company has already seen evidence of a lead-zinc soil anomaly cause by a buried deposit. Minerals may be being leaked up through faults and dispersed amongst the till and alluvium.

An aerial survey also found magnetic anomalies up to two miles long in the area. Exploration efforts continue as these nearly coincide with gravity anomalies. A drilling effort in 2004 may have missed the main deposit site by about 100 meters, according to downhole readings of the local magnetic field and temperature, taken in 2014. Testing has continued into June 2017, when a Kootenay Zinc Corp. exploration update (http://nnw.fm/5kQc1) revealed that scientific observations were ongoing. These included gravity surveying, soil geochemistry sampling, and interpretation and mass modeling. In addition to drilling preparations, road and access preparations were ongoing at the site. The company has been focused on the E3 drilling target, which appears to be a more attractive drilling target compared to the extensively measured and analyzed E1 site.

In fact, outcrop samples have been taken from multiple sites for assay; at two of them, zinc values were above 10,000 parts per million, per a soil geochemical survey in June. Several other samples at the base of the slope were in the 150 to 300 parts per million range. The Sully property is currently 1,375 hectares, or nearly 3,398 acres, in size, and located in British Columbia, where Kootenay continues its mineral exploration and development efforts.

NetworkNewsBreaks – Moleculin Biotech, Inc. (NASDAQ: MBRX) Reports Discovery of Metabolic Inhibitor with Potential to Treat Pancreatic Cancer; Shares Rise

Shares of Moleculin Biotech (NASDAQ: MBRX) are up more than 30% after the company said that WP1234, a metabolic inhibitor, is a positive drug candidate to be studied for the potential to treat pancreatic cancer. Pancreatic cancer is still considered mostly untreatable, so any improvement in treating this disease could symbolize a significant clinical benefit. “We have identified possible new properties of our compound WP1234, a modification to WP1122. In pre-clinical testing, WP1234 has shown improved drug characteristics when compared with WP1122 and a 20 to 50-fold greater ability to kill pancreatic cancer cell lines when compared with traditional inhibitors of glycolysis. We know that pancreatic cancer thrives even in a reduced oxygen environment, which indicates it may be highly dependent on glycolysis to survive. This discovery now makes WP1234 a promising drug candidate to be studied for the treatment of pancreatic cancer,” Moleculin chairman and CEO Walter Klemp stated in the news release.

Patriot One Technologies (TSX.V: PAT) (OTCQB: PTOTF) and McMaster University Researchers Team Up to Commercialize Concealed Weapons Detection System

Patriot One Technologies, Inc. (TSX.V: PAT) (OTCQB: PTOTF) is taking steps to commercialize its PATSCAN™ CMR technology, which features an innovative radar technology that can detect concealed weapons such as knives, guns, grenades, and suicide vests. The microwave radar system can identify moving targets – individuals who are carrying concealed weapons. Recently featured in a June article (http://nnw.fm/JAi7V), the company plans on making the system available to commercial markets to help fight terrorism and other security issues throughout the world. Researchers at McMaster University, based in Hamilton, Ontario, have joined forces with the Patriot One team to boost the product’s path to commercialization.

PATSCAN is the next-generation version of NForce CMR1000, a popular and award-winning software and radar system. It has been developed and improved with the help of the university’s research team. The result is a portable device and software solution that can be used by security personnel at the civilian and military levels. PATSCAN has been engineered to detect metal content, using software that can recognize the wavelength patterns of weapons, and compare them to the signatures of known weapons in real time.

Thanks to its small size, the system can be concealed in a doorway, hallway, or in any public venue such as an airport, stadium, or school. Individuals are unaware of the device’s presence or that it is scanning them. Rather than generate a scan as many traditional security systems do, this system automatically relays an alert to security personnel. So far, it has a 93 percent accuracy rate for identifying the entry of an active threat. Its current range is 6.5 feet.

The entire radar-based PATSCAN is contained in a small semiconductor chip. This integrated circuit is similar to microwave radar the military has used for years. It has also enabled more financially practical applications, so other systems have been developed using such small circuits as well. These include intrusion alarms, police speed meters, door openers, and motion detectors. Microwave radar offers a very fine resolution, so it can detect small objects, and some versions integrate multiple receivers, adding fine precision and wide-angle detection.

In addition, the Patriot One-McMaster University solution avoids the pitfalls of current technologies. Present security systems at, for example, airports, use X-rays and CT scans. With PATSCAN, there are no privacy or health concerns, operator errors, or false positives. Individuals do not have to comply with being scanned or searched, nor do they have to take the time to be processed. The entire scanning procedure is inconspicuous to the individual being probed. Plus, an assailant cannot plan a way to avert the radar, as they often try with perimeter security.

Many facilities have sought out detectors that meet cost, space, and location requirements, in addition to those that are simple to use. The need to be accurate despite interference from metal ordinarily carried by people is high as well. Patriot One’s near-field radar solution addresses all the concerns of standard security systems, and it is currently in the process of commercialization.
