Interview with James Buskard, President of Nevada Exploration (TSX-V: NGE): Making New Gold Discoveries in Nevada Using Groundwater Chemistry
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA

Nevada Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: NGE; OTCQX: NVDEF) is a Vancouver-based gold explorer, focused on making new gold discoveries in Nevada, through the application of the new and unique exploration technology called Groundwater Chemistry. James Buskard, President of Nevada Exploration, stated that approximately three hundred million ounces of gold have been produced from Nevada to date, yet the mining was only done near the areas with exposed bedrock which is only about half of the state. The geologists active in the state agree that there should be another three hundred million ounces waiting to be discovered underneath the valleys. The Nevada Exploration team developed a hydrogeochemistry approach to, cost effectively, explore the covered areas. According to Mr. Buskard, everywhere they have taken a groundwater chemistry target forward through early-stage drilling, they've found the sorts of targets, the sizes that you would associate with a large gold deposit. So they are very encouraged by their results to date. It seems very, very exciting!

ProfilGruppen (Stockholm: PROFB) is a Swedish company that markets, develops and manufactures customized aluminum extrusions and components.

Interview with Award Winning Ross McElroy, COO of Fission Uranium (TSX: FCU, OTCQX: FCUUF, FRANKFURT: 2FU) in the Athabasca Basin, High-Grade, Over 100 Million Pounds Deposit and Only 50 Meters below Surface
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA

Fission Uranium (TSX: FCU, OTCQX: FCUUF, FRANKFURT: 2FU) is a premier Uranium explorer operating in Canada's Athabasca Basin, home to the world's richest source of high-grade uranium. The company's flagship project, PLS, hosts the Athabasca Basin’s most significant high-grade, near-surface deposit (the Triple R) as well as the region’s largest mineralized trend. We learned from Ross McElroy, COO of Fission Uranium, that one of the things that really differentiate this project from any other uranium project worldwide, including anything else in the Athabasca Basin, is not only the high grade and the size, which is over 100 million pounds, but the fact that it starts at 50 meters below the surface. Nobody else has this kind of high-grade deposit that's this shallow. The 2015 PEA showed that this could be a very low cost producer on par with some of the lowest cost producers in uranium assets anywhere in the world. According to Mr. McElroy, Fission Uranium has the best exploration team in this business and a diverse board with a lot of experience, with the two newest members of the board from the Chinese utility company, CGN, that had bought 19.99% of Fission earlier this year for $82 million. In 2016 Fission Uranium is focusing on growing its resource, as well as making new discoveries on the property, and Mr. McElroy invites everyone to have a look at a company called CoreBox ( to see the progress of the summer drill program at PLS.

Interview with Christian Easterday, Managing Director of Hot Chili (ASX: HCH): High Grade Gold Being Added to One of the World’s Lowest Capital Intensity Large Scale New Copper Developments. Located within the Iron Oxide/Copper-Gold Belt of Chile
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA

Hot Chili Ltd. (ASX: HCH) is an Australian company, focused on its very large-scale Productora copper porphyry deposit, located within the iron oxide/copper-gold belt of Chile 15km south of the town of Vallenar in Chile’s Region III. Productora is a very infrastructure-rich project, standing out as one of the lowest capital intensity large scale new copper projects to be developed. We learned from Christian Easterday, Managing Director of Hot Chili, that the company is fast-tracking a very low cost, rapid assessment of a high-grade gold deposit, recently discovered in the southern extent of Productora. Next steps for Hot Chili will be advancing Productora to a decision to mine, while in parallel, making preparations towards the first major drilling program to be directed over what appears to represent approximately 1 billion tons of additional growth potential in the main copper-gold asset. According to Mr. Easterday, Hot Chili is a very consolidated company, has very strong funding support and is partnered with CAP Mineria, one of Chile's largest resource majors. The company has a very strong news flow lined up for the coming 6 to 12 months. Productora is an asset that will be at the front of the queue of the next wave of copper price escalation. Most importantly for investors- it is the emergence of a very robust looking high grade gold deposit which looks likely to be turning heads- with the drill rods due to start turning soon also.

We learned from Dr. Todd there are three main areas where lithium metal is consumed: battery market, where it is used as a lithium foil; aluminum alloying for the aircraft industry; and also, in pharmaceuticals. Having the in-house technology ready, Stria aims to become a lithium metal producer, and to get its product to the market in one or two years rather than four or more years it might take to bring its mine into production.

White Metal Receives Drill Results From Dobie Zone
THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 21, 2016) - White Metal Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:WHM) ("White Metal" or the "Company) would like to announce the results of the recently completed diamond drill program on the Dobie Property previously announced on September 13, 2016. While reviewing the core from the previous drilling campaign conducted in 2009 by Manicouagan Minerals, it was noted that very fine arsenopyrite existed in core not sampled from drill hole DOB-09-14. This core was split and sent in for gold assay as part of this year's efforts and resulted in extending the intersection to 1.32gpt Au over 42.0m including 1.52gpt Au over 33.5m compared to the previously announced 1.53gpt Au / 27.9m (see Table1 and plan map below). Hole DOB-16-17 drilled 20m to the west of DOB-12-14 intersected 1.51gpt Au over 13.7m within a larger mineralized envelope of 0.74gpt Au over 39.1m. Diamond drill hole DOB-16-18, a 50m step-out to the northwest from DOB-09-12, returned 2.08 gpt Au over 4.1m. Hole DOB-16-20 was drilled 50m to the east of DOB-12-14 and assayed 1.24 gpt Au over 20.6m including 2.05 gpt Au over 5.5m. Hole DOB-16-19, drilled on section and above DOB-16-18, intersected neither the Dobie nor the altered volcanic zone ("AV") but did intersect the underlying iron formation suggesting it may be offset by faulting.

Global and China Agricultural Machinery Industry Report, 2016-2020
LONDON, Oct. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In recent years, as China's economic development has entered a new normal, agricultural machinery industry also sees the end of a golden decade (2004-2013) of rapid growth and expands at a medium-high growth rate. In 2015, Chinese agricultural machinery enterprises with annual prime operating revenue of RMB20 million and more registered combined revenue of RMB428.37 billion, edging up 2.5% from a year ago, at the weakest pace over the past ten years. Features are presented as follows:

1) Agricultural machinery subsidies decline gradually. Funding for agricultural machinery subsidies and the subsidies for each set of agricultural machinery dropped and the scope of subsidies narrowed in 2015 and 2016.

2.) The level of agricultural mechanization improves. The total power of agricultural machinery was1.1 billion kilowatts in 2015 and is expected to hit 1.2 billion kilowatts in 2020. The overall level of mechanization in crop plowing, sowing, and harvesting came to 63% in 2015 and will touch 70% in 2020.

3) Standards for agricultural machinery emission are upgraded. The Ministry of Environmental Protection announced the implementation of Limits and Measurement Methods for Exhaust Pollutants from Diesel Engines of Non-road Mobile Machinery (CHINA III, IV) in January 2016, requiring that, from December 1st, 2016, all domestically-manufactured, imported and sold agricultural machinery shall not be equipped with the diesel engines that fail to conform to the Standard (III).

4) Demand for agricultural machinery changes. With evolution of farming practices from traditional ones to subsoiling and deep ploughing and of operator from individual household to family farm and agricultural machinery cooperative, the demand for large andhigh-power agricultural machinery has kept growing. In 2015, China experienced declines in both output and output value of tractors but saw over 30% increase in 100HP-above large tractors.

5) Import and export of agricultural machinery both fall. China imported USD2.28 billion and exported USD10.17 billion worth of agricultural machinery in 2015, down 8.4% and 3.8%, respectively, over the previous year.

6) "Agricultural Machinery + Internet" starts to prevail. In 2015, a group of e-commerce firms including Taobao and JD began pushing forward online agricultural machinery sales and services with agricultural machinery enterprises.

With transformation and upgrading of the Chinese agricultural machinery market, domestic agricultural machinery enterprises have actively enhanced their corporate competitiveness via resource consolidation, merger & reorganization, and independent innovation.

Foton Lovol International Heavy Industry Co., Ltd.: The company has accelerated its global strategy in recent years, taking full control of Arbos and MaterMacc in 2014, further integrating Lovol European Technical Center and factories of Arbos and MaterMacc to set up LovolArbos Group Spa in September 2015 and acquiring Italian GOLDONI, a well-known European manufacturer of orchard tractors, in the following December.

Changzhou Dongfeng Agricultural Machinery Group Co., Ltd.: With tractors as its primary business, the company has been actively in exploring combine-harvester and rice transplanter markets. The company and Xinghua Economic Development Zone entered into an agreement on investment in XinghuaDongfeng Agricultural Machinery Industrial Park which will be primarily engaged in manufacturing of agricultural equipment like grain combine harvesters with Phase I starting construction in July 2016 and going into trial production in October 2017.
