OPVIUS presents first self-tending vertical garden

The winners of the 2017 DGNB (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Nachhaltiges Bauen) Sustainability Challenge – BOXOM GmbH and OPVIUS GmbH – teamed up after the competition to establish an innovative joint project in vertical gardening. The final product? A zero-maintenance façade garden capable of looking after itself using solar power.Vertical gardens on exterior walls and façades are an urban solution to increase the sustainability of our city landscapes. Having met during the 2017 DGNB Sustainability Challenge, the experts at BOXOM GmbH and OPVIUS GmbH teamed up to carry out a joint project to attractively combine a façade garden and printed organic photovoltaics (OPV). The two companies developed a lightweight façade garden capable of tending itself based on sophisticated watering and system technology. OPVIUS’ semi-transparent OPV modules power the BOXOM façade system, which then supplies the integrated plants with the right amount of water and nutrients needed for growth.

BOXOM’s mission is not just to create vertical gardens, but also to develop façade use for sustainable concepts. The light weight and semi-transparency of the organic photovoltaics (OPV) technology makes it an ideal combination option for vertical gardens. Not only do the OPV modules generate a power supply, they also provide shade for the plants, and protect them from drying out. Plants on the south-facing sides in particular are at risk of getting too much sun, and this is where the OPV modules can help.

The pre-tensioned structure, consisting of steel ropes made by Carl Stahl GmbH, serves as the basis for integrating the OPV modules and plants. The elevated plant cords and the OPV modules are both affixed to these vertically tensioned steel ropes. This system is available as a finished product, and can transform unused vertical façades into attractive, sustainable gardens. The combination of OPV and vertical garden unlocks completely new façade solutions – for both restored and new buildings.

The first OPV vertical garden is currently being presented at a technically innovative “Tiny House” created by Merck KGaA. In addition to the OPV, other highly developed Merck materials and products are also integrated into the Tiny House’s many different functions, such as voice control, electrochromic windows, and flat OLED TVs.

Niklas Weisel, Managing Director of BOXOM GmbH, had this to say: “Botanic Horizon vertical gardens, using OPVIUS OPV modules, are a safe, easy way of creating gardens anywhere and fulfilling your passion for gardening even in a small space.” Hermann Issa, Senior Director Business Development & Sales at OPVIUS GmbH, adds that “particularly in view of discussions surrounding fine dust and nitric oxide, the self-tending plant system can play an important part in helping with air purity and the wellbeing of local residents in densely built-up inner cities. BOXOM GmbH, with its Botanic Horizon products, and OPVIUS GmbH, with its printed OPV technology, are making an energy-neutral contribution to improving urban climate here.”

 

 

About BOXOM

BOXOM was founded in Saxony’s Ore Mountains in 2015, and develops and sells complete vertical-garden solutions for façades, interiors (such as offices, canteens, kitchens and living areas), and greenhouses under the Botanic Horizon brand (see and plant cords, a product from the “Plant technology based on textile cords” series”). The systems developed may be installed in walls and ceilings of new buildings or as a retrofit on existing buildings.

The completely unique, patented vertical plant technology based on textile cords enables a wide range of applications which, through the use of supplementary vertical technologies like photovoltaics, solar heat, heat pumps and much more, make life more convenient and comfortable.

Copper Mountain Commences 2018 Drilling Program At New Ingerbelle

Copper Mountain Mining Corporation (TSX:CMMC   ASX:CMMC) (the “Company” or “Copper Mountain” – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqDcU2k6tH8&t=2s  ) is pleased to announce that it has commenced drilling at the New Ingerbelle deposit at the Copper Mountain Mine, located near Princeton in southern British Columbia. This Phase 2, 10,000m drill program has been designed to follow up on the successful Phase 1, 2017 drilling program which has validated historical data and confirmed that mineralization is open both laterally and at depth.* The objectives of the program are to continue to expand the New Ingerbelle resource area and to convert inferred resources to Measured and Indicated status. A total of 30 holes are planned and the results from this summer program are expected in late Q3.

New Ingerbelle has never been included in the mine plan of the Copper Mountain Mine, nor has the Company reported any New Ingerbelle Mineral Reserves. Its resource categories are currently being updated with the addition of the Phase 1 2017 drill data and will be further updated after the completion of this phase 2 program.  The average Cu Eq** grade for 35 significant drill intersections from last year’s Phase 1 program* is 0.48% (0.34% Cu, 0.70g/t Ag and 0.22g/tAu ).

The Company’s objective under a three phase program at New Ingerbelle is to outline sufficient resources to form the basis of a Feasibility Study on the development potential of this historic producing mine. The Company’s target is to add a minimum of 150M tonnes of Measured and Indicated resources in order to commence that study.

Copper Mountain confirms that it is not aware of any new information or data since the release of the historical data included in the Company’s press release on October 2, 2017 that affects materially or otherwise the information included in the Company’s October 2, 2017 announcement.

*See News Release, February 1, 2018   www.cumtn.com

**Cu Eq % : Calculated using US$3.10/lb Cu, US$1225/oz Au, US $17/oz Ag, and recoveries of 82, 70 and 55% for Cu, Au and Ag, respectively, with transportation and smelter terms applied. Based on a 0.2% copper cut-off grade, which is contained within an open pit design based on a US$2.75 copper price and 2017 mine costs

About Copper Mountain Mining Corporation:

Copper Mountain’s flagship asset is the Copper Mountain mine, located in southern British Columbia near the town of Princeton. The Company has a strategic alliance with Mitsubishi Materials Corporation who owns 25% of the mine. The Copper Mountain mine has a large resource of copper that remains open laterally and at depth. This significant exploration potential is being explored to maximize the property’s full development potential. Copper Mountain’s Cloncurry project in Queensland, Australia, includes the development-ready Eva Copper Project and an extensive exploration potential within the Company’s 379,000 hectare highly prospective land package.

Additional information is available on the Company’s website at www.CuMtn.com.

Caledonia Mining Corporation Plc (“Caledonia” or the “Company” – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozH0QqvFbJQ&t=2s ) announces quarterly gold production from the Blanket Mine (“Blanket”) in Zimbabwe for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 (“Q1 2018” or the “Quarter”).  All production numbers are expressed on a 100 per cent basis and are based on mine production data and are therefore subject to adjustment following final assay at the refiners.

Approximately 12,924 ounces of gold were produced during the Quarter, in line with production expectations for 2018. Caledonia maintains its 2018 full year production guidance of 55,000 ounces to 59,000 ounces and remains on track with progress towards its long-term target of 80,000 ounces by 2021.

Commenting on the production for Q1 2018, Steve Curtis, Chief Executive Officer, said:

“Production in the first quarter of 2018 is consistent with the level achieved in the corresponding quarter of 2017 as Blanket remains on track to deliver its full year guidance of 55,000 to 59,000 ounces. Whilst production is in line with expectations our safety performance during the quarter was very disappointing as we announced during the quarter a fatal accident at Blanket. Caledonia remains fully committed to the safety of all our employees and I join with my colleagues and management in reaffirming our commitment to safe gold production.

“The sinking of the central shaft continues to progress according to plan and within budget, with the shaft currently at a depth of 990 metres. We look forward to commencing production from the central shaft in 2020 which is expected to deliver the Company’s growth plan to achieve 80,000 ounces by 2021.”

“The business continues its strategic investment in the Central Shaft project, having announced towards the end of last year a significant further increase in Blanket Mine’s resource base and consequently a planned deepening of the Central Shaft in order to access these resources. The Central Shaft has approximately two years of significant capital investment in 2018 and 2019 remaining after which it is expected to be in production in 2020 when the business is anticipated to see a period of substantially increased free cash flow as capital investment declines.

Caledonia is targeting production of between 55,000 and 59,000 ounces of gold in 2018 as it continues to make progress towards its goal of 80,000 ounces per year by 2021 upon completion of the Central Shaft.”

Caledonia’s Dividend Policy

Caledonia’s strategy to maximise shareholder value includes a quarterly dividend policy which the board of directors adopted in 2014.

It is expected that the current dividend of twenty-seven and a half United States cents per annum, paid in equal quarterly instalments, will be maintained. 

Effect of the re-domicile from Canada to Jersey, Channel Islands

Following the re-domicile of the Company from Canada to Jersey with effect from March 19, 2016, the dividend is no longer subject to Canadian withholding tax and it is no longer eligible for the purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada).

Advantage Lithium: Das Cauchari-Projekt liefert erneut!

Erst gestern hatten wir über die äußerst positiven Neuigkeiten von Advantage Lithiums (WKN A2AQ6C / TSX-V AAL) Joint Venture-Partner Orocobre (WKN A0M61S / ASX ORE / TSX ORL) berichtet und schon legt Advantage heute mit eigenen, exzellenten Bohrdaten von seinem Lithiumprojekt Cauchari nach!

Um genau zu sein veröffentlichte das Unternehmen heute Daten von der Beprobung der Lithiumsole in Bohrloch CAU15 im zuvor noch nicht erbohrten NW-Sektor von Cauchari, der direkt an Orocobres Olaroz-Liegenschaft angrenzt.

Advantages President & CEO David Sidoo zeigt sich sehr zufrieden mit den bisherigen Ergebnissen. Auch mit dieser Bohrung habe man, abgesehen von der Bestätigung guter Lithiumgehalte in der Sole, wieder wichtige Informationen zum NW-Sektor gewonnen, die auf Potenzial für „exzellente“ hydraulische Gegebenheiten in diesem Gebiet hindeuten würden. Zahlreiche vorhandene, sandige Bereiche würden zum Beispiel darauf hindeuten, dass vergleichsweise hohe Soleflussraten zu erzielen seien. Zudem gleiche das Verhältnis von Magnesium und Lithium in der Sole dem der anderen Bohrungen in diesem Gebiet, was die Erwartungen bestätige, den konventionellen, auch auf Olaroz angewendeten Produktionsprozess, für die Cauchari-Sole verwenden zu können.
