Deveron’s Canada-wide drone data ambitions starting to take flight #CSE $DVR

Through a series of small but decisive steps taken over the past 18 months, Deveron UAS Corp., a drone data services company that focuses on the agriculture sector, is slowly taking flight.

The latest development in that steady build came Monday when Deveron announced that it had been given the green light by the Minister of Transport to operate across Canada.

Prior to this, Deveron, which started life in 2012 as Deveron Resources and whose major shareholder is Greencastle Resources, had received government approval to operate in three additional provinces, Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan, alongside its home base of Ontario.

“With national compliance, we have the ability to fly anywhere under one area of interest. It makes things easier for us as we scale (up) and talk to nationally-based agricultural providers,” said David MacMillan, chief executive. Accordingly, because the firm’s clients have a national perspective, the new licence allows Deveron to adopt a national approach to its business.

“We are excited about (the business) because the data we generate produces intelligence that can help farmers increase yields and reduce costs,” benefits he argues the farmers can achieve through variable rate application, a technique that allows resources (including additional seed or fertilizer) to be applied to areas with the greatest need.

Enforcer Gold Commences Exploration Program At The Montalembert Gold Project #TSVX $VEIN

Toronto, Ontario – Enforcer Gold Corp (“Enforcer” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: VEIN – FSE: N071) together with Globex Mining Enterprises Inc. (TSX:GMX) (FRANKFURT:G1M) (STUTTGART:G1M) (BERLIN:G1M) (MUNICH:G1M) (XETRA:G1M) (OTCQX:GLBXF) is pleased to announce that it has commenced its comprehensive field exploration program at the Montalembert gold project, that will include the first ever large-diameter core drilling campaign to be conducted on the high-grade Galena and No. 2 veins. The exploration program is expected to run uninterrupted through the late fall of 2017.

The field exploration program follows on the heels of a high-resolution aeromagnetic VLF-EM survey flown in March over the entire 7300-hectare property, which will assist Enforcer’s team in delineating structural features of folding, shearing and faulting. As elsewhere in the Abitibi greenstone belt, these features are believed to be key controls to gold mineralization on the Montalembert property.

CKR Carbon Updates Results of Ongoing Exploration at Aukam

CKR Carbon Corporation. (TSXV: CKR) (FSE: CB81) (“CKR” or the “Company”) a graphite development company and operator of the Aukam vein graphite project in Namibia, is pleased to announce results of ongoing exploration at Aukam. Exploration during 2017 has primarily focused on underground diamond drilling to expand the known graphite mineralization in historic workings. Additionally, reconnaissance exploration is underway to map additional graphite mineralization distant from the mine site.

After rehabilitating the lower adit, CKR launched an underground drilling program to test for continuation of graphite mineralization along strike and down dip of known graphite in the old workings. To date CKR has completed 28 diamond drill holes with a total length of 630 metres with individual holes varying in length from 3 metres to 45 metres. Of the 28 holes, 16 intersected vein and/or disseminated graphite and four were abandoned in old workings. Logging, core cutting and sampling are ongoing. Chip channel samples from three exposed graphite veins in the underground workings assayed 18.34% Cg over 0.9 metres (0.85m true width), 41.98% Cg over 0.84 metres (0.83m true width) and 56.06% Cg over 1 metre (true width unknown) from the south wall of a stope (see News Release dated July 12, 2016).

Prospecting in the area around the electromagnetic anomaly to the east of the mine workings has resulted in the identification of disseminated graphite at surface on the down dip (southern) side of the anomaly in the inferred hanging-wall. The anomaly stretches over 700 metres east-west and remains open in both directions (see News Release dated January 18th, 2017). It is coincident with the upper surface of a shear zone. Together with previously identified mineralization, surface graphite has now been found over 566 metres east-west, sub-parallel to the electromagnetic anomaly with a north-south width of up to 190 metres. Further investigation is required to delineate the extent of the graphite mineralization in this area.

Mission Ready Announces Updated Details in Relation to up to 1.5M Convertible Debenture Financing

Mission Ready Services Inc. (“Mission Ready” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE: MRS) announces that further to its News Release of April 5, 2017 that it has reached an amended agreement with First Republic Capital Corporation (the “Agent“) to act as agent in relation to a brokered private placement whereby the Company proposes to raise on a up to $1,500,000 through the issuance of secured convertible debentures of the Company (the “Offering“). Closing of the Offering is expected to occur on or before May 1, 2017 and is expected to close in more than one tranche.

Under the terms of the amended agreement each Debenture is convertible at the option of the holder, in whole or in part, into units consisting of one common share and one share purchase warrant at a price of $0.10 (the “Conversion Price“) per unit at any time before 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on the date that is twelve months following the closing of the Offering, or each tranche thereof. Each Debenture matures twelve months from the date of issuance (the “Maturity Date”) and contains a clause entitling the holder at its option to extend the Maturity Date of the debenture for a further 12 months on terms acceptable to the TSX-V at the time of the extension. The Debentures bear interest at a rate of 15% per annum, accrued and payable in on the Maturity Date or where the whole or any part of the Debenture is converted, on the date of conversion in proportion to amount of the Debenture converted on such date. The Debenture is subject to a default clause whereby if the Company issues shares for at a price per share less than the Conversion Price during the term of the Debenture this will be treated as a default and all amounts due under the Debenture will become payable where the Company does not cure such default within a 30 day period after receiving notice of such default from the holder.

Each share purchase warrant (each, a “Warrant“) that is issued as a result of any conversion is exercisable by the holder to acquire one common share of the Corporation for a period of thirty-six (36) months from the date of conversion at an exercise price of $0.15 per warrant share.

Were the Debentures to be fully converted into common shares of the Company this would result in the issuance of up to 15,000,000 common shares and 15,000,000 Warrants each exercisable into one common share.
