Maple Gold updates Douay Resource Estimate containing more ounces

Maple Gold Mines Ltd. (“Maple Gold” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: MGM, OTCQB: MGMLF; Frankfurt: M3G – http://www.commodity-tv.net/… ) is pleased to announce an updated Mineral Resource Estimate (the “updated estimate”) for the Company’s Douay Gold Project (“Douay”), as prepared by Micon International Limited (“Micon”). The updated estimate includes additional drilling and assays from work completed during 2017 (see press release January 25, 2018), with updated block model wireframes, modified search ellipses and modified geologic interpretations, all of which targeted a more refined and constrained model.

The updated estimate successfully converts a significant proportion of Inferred Resources to the Indicated Resource category, which were absent from the 2017 Micon estimate. Mineral Resources at Douay are now estimated as 9,383,000 tonnes grading 1.59 g/t Au (0.48 million ounces) in the Indicated category, plus 84,152,000 tonnes grading 1.02 g/t Au (2.76 million ounces) in the Inferred category, using a 0.45 g/t cut-off grade (updated base-case) as highlighted below:

INFERRED 84,152,000 1.02 2,759,000
*See Table 2 for additional cut-off grades & see disclosure notes appended to this press release

At a 0.5 g/t Au cut-off (same as Micon 2017), the updated 2018 estimate shows increased average grade of Inferred Resources (1.09 versus 1.05 g/t Au), increased level of confidence (addition of 467,000 contained ounces in the Indicated category) and increased contained ounces compared to the previous estimate (see Table 2 below). However, using a 0.45 g/t cut-off grade is currently believed to be the most optimal for currently contemplated conceptual pit-scenarios, and therefore has been selected as the base-case for the updated estimate. The Company will continue examining different scenarios as part of the ongoing evaluation process as new data is added and geological and economic models are updated.

Indicated Resources are present in the more closely drilled Douay West Zone (3,693,000 tonnes at 2.47 g/t Au, 294,000 ounces), and there are also four such areas within the Porphyry Zone (5,690,000 tonnes at 1.01 g/t Au, 185,000 ounces). The Indicated and Inferred Resources at various cut-off grades are summarized below in Table 2 below.

Maple Gold’s President & CEO, Matthew Hornor, stated: “We are pleased to enter the winter drilling season with an updated resource base that improves on the previous estimate in multiple ways, including a material increase in the number of contained ounces and upgrading a portion of the previously reported inferred resource to indicated resources of more than 450,000 ounces. We expect additional drill rigs to arrive at site very shortly and look forward to testing further infill, step-out and new discovery targets this winter.”

The modelling changes, additional drilling and assay data, and updated interpretations have variably impacted contained ounces at each of the zones at Douay. A number of the zones appear to be merging into a larger unified system and a portion of the Company’s current and future drilling campaigns will continue to test targets that support this thesis.

Further information about assumptions, parameters, methods and risks in respect of the updated estimate will be available in a NI 43-101 technical report filed by Maple Gold on Sedar within 45 days following the date of this press release.
Notes:

1. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. Micon does not believe that mineral resources estimate is materially affected by environmental, permitting, legal, title, taxation, socio-political, marketing, or other relevant issues.
2. The quantity and grade reported includes both indicated and inferred resources for the Douay West and Porphyry zones and inferred resources for the remaining zones in the deposit. The inferred resources in this estimation are conceptual in nature and there has been insufficient exploration data to define these resources as an indicated category and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in upgrading them to an Indicated mineral resource category. There are no measured resources currently for the mineral zones comprising the Douay Project.
3. The mineral resource estimate has been prepared without reference to surface rights or the presence of overlying public infrastructure.
4. Figures may not total due to rounding.
5. A gold price of US $1,400 per ounce was used for the purposes of demonstrating economics.
6. The mineralized envelopes were re-modelled in GEMS at 0.3 g/t Au cut-off assuming an anastomosing style of mineralization with some inclusion of lower grade material for modelling purposes.
7. Although the Douay West, Porphyry Zones were able to produce supporting variograms, all zones within the entire deposit were estimated using Inverse Distance Cubed.
8. Search ellipses range from 50 m to 300 m using 3 passes to fill the model. The search ellipses were also optimized to reflect the anastomosing nature and different directions and dips within the mineralized zones.
9. Block size of 10 m x 2 m x 5 m was used.
10. The effective date of the mineral resource estimate is February 9, 2018.

Goldmining issues letter to shareholders and reports on company plans for 2018

GoldMining Inc. (the "Company" or "GoldMining") (TSX-V: GOLD; OTCQX: GLDLF – https://www.youtube.com/…) today issued a Letter to Shareholders regarding the Company’s plans and outlook for 2018. The full report from the Company’s Chairman, Amir Adnani, follows.

Dear Shareholder,
First, I want to thank you for your ongoing support of our efforts over the last 12-months, which led to a significant expansion of our project portfolio. With three acquisitions of gold and gold-copper resource stage projects in 2017 – the La Mina Gold-Copper Project ("La Mina") in Colombia, the Yellowknife Gold Project ("YGP") in Canada and the Crucero Gold Project ("Crucero") in Peru – it was a very busy and exciting year for our Company.

Since our first acquisition in 2012, our efforts to consolidate assets have now placed us in the top tier of junior mining companies with respect to the amount of global gold resources. GoldMining’s global resources have grown to 9.5 million ounces gold (12.4 million ounces gold equivalent) in the measured and indicated categories and 11.7 million ounces gold (14.2 million ounces gold equivalent) in the inferred category. The table at the end of this letter provides additional details on our resources, including grades, gold-equivalents and tonnages for each of our projects.

With no debt, strong treasury and disciplined cost structure, we are ideally positioned for value realization, with the flexibility to aggressively advance our existing projects with resource expansion and development activities in the event the price of gold makes a clear breakout in 2018.

For now, despite the gold price showing signs of improvement – from US$1,158/ounce at the start of 2017 to over US$1,300 today – we continue to identify and actively assess numerous opportunities for accretive acquisitions.

In 2018, we plan to continue creating value for shareholders and believe we have the means, assets and opportunities to do so.

Building a large and diversified resource base in the Americas Expansion in Colombia

With the acquisition of the La Mina and Titiribi Gold-Copper Project ("Titiribi") in Colombia, we have consolidated a significant land package with gold-copper resources and multiple drill-targets for future exploration. La Mina and Titiribi are only 6 kilometres apart, are situated within the Mid Cauca Belt, one of the most prospective and under-explored gold belts in the world. In addition to the already defined gold and copper resource at La Mina, the project hosts several under-explored porphyry targets that we believe offer excellent opportunities for new discoveries in a region with excellent infrastructure.

Targets such as La Garrucha, that saw some of the longest and highest-grade gold and copper intersections before drilling was suspended in 2013 due to lack of funding by the previous owner, will be evaluated to determine the amount of additional drilling required to complete a maiden resource estimate. Several other geophysical and geochemical anomalies are untested by drilling, but clearly there is good potential to identify additional areas of gold-copper mineralization on the property.
Entry into Canada and Peru

Canadaꞌs Northwest Territories is an exciting and under-explored region of Canada with geopolitical stability. With two acquisitions in this region, we’ve consolidated over 11,000 hectares that comprise the Yellowknife Gold Project ("YGP"). The YGP is an advanced-stage gold project covering over 30 kilometres of the Yellowknife Greenstone Belt, which historically produced more than 15 million ounces of gold from the Con, Giant and Discovery Mines. The Discovery Mine, located on the YGP land package, historically produced over 1 million ounces of gold from high-grade ore from 1950 to 1969. Historic production is not necessarily indicative of potential future results and is referenced for information purposes only.

The YGP has been the focus of extensive historical work including drilling (231,609 metres in 1,061 holes), underground development at two deposits (2,400 metres), bulk sampling, and metallurgical test work. The potential to expand the existing resource base and identify new areas of gold mineralization is considered high by our technical team.

Our focus in 2018 will be to compile and review the existing extensive database to gain a better understanding of the potential of the Yellowknife Greenstone Belt covered by our project. An independent engineering group will be engaged to complete a technical report, including the completion of resource estimates, for several of the deposits that have been identified on the project.

We started 2018 by announcing our latest resource estimate on the Crucero Gold Project ("Crucero") in southeastern Peru, which we acquired in late 2017. Crucero is situated in a favourable mining jurisdiction with a pit-constrained resource and several nearby exploration targets. Our geologists are excited about the potential to expand the existing near surface gold mineralization at the A1 deposit and test several of the nearby targets.

Technical Team to Support Growing Portfolio

GoldMining’s technical team was strengthened with appointments of Dr. Ross Sherlock, Dr. Paul Zweng and Mr. Curtis Clark to its Technical Advisory Board. Collectively, they bring decades of exploration, development, production and financial experience to provide insight and guidance towards GoldMining’s portfolio of resource-stage projects and to help identify new opportunities for potential acquisition.

With an expanding portfolio in new jurisdictions, we will continue to consider additional key personnel to provide necessary in-country expertise to manage the technical, stakeholder, environmental, and permitting programs in order to keep our properties in good standing with local communities and government agencies.

Analyst Coverage
GoldMining is covered by several mining analysts, including Rodman & Renshaw (a unit of H.C. Wainwright & Co.), Roth Capital Partners and Cantor Fitzgerald. It is our intention to attend a number of investor conferences in 2018 and look forward to meeting current shareholders during these opportunities.

First Cobalt Intersects High Grade Cobalt at Bellellen

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX-V: FCC, ASX: FCC, OTCQB: FTSSF) (the “Company” – https://www.youtube.com/…) today announced positive drill results from the historic Bellellen mine in the Cobalt Camp, Ontario. These early results confirm the presence of high grade cobalt and nickel along the known Bellellen vein system south of the historic mine workings.
Highlights
• 2.0 metres of 0.78% Co and 0.83% Ni, including 1.1 metres of 1.35% Co and 1.47% Ni along the Bellellen Vein system that extends for approximately 300 metres of strike length
• Several calcite veins and disseminated zones of mineralization have been intersected
• Assays pending for additional 12 holes drilled as part of the 1,100m program at Bellellen
• Further support to the thesis of metal zoning of cobalt-nickel rich versus silver rich areas within a single hydrothermal system; a relationship seen elsewhere in the Camp

Trent Mell, President & Chief Executive Officer, commented:
“First assays from Bellellen drilling confirm the grades found in muckpile material sampled in 2017 and support our view that we now have a third area of interest in the Cobalt Camp. The Bellellen structure has adequate strike length to remain a priority target. Our 2018 drill strategy is to test several new target areas to confirm the cobalt grades of known systems throughout the Camp and then focus on those of sufficient size to support large tonnage operations.”

Drilling at Bellellen began in January 2018 with 13 holes completed for over 1,100 metres. The program was intended to confirm the presence of cobalt-nickel mineralization away from historic mining and to identify the distribution of both vein-style and disseminated-style mineralization previously sampled from underground material.

Drill holes targeted the north-south trending Bellellen Vein and the northeast trending Frontier 2 Vein (Figure 1). In places, two holes were collared at the same location with different dip orientation to determine the direction of the veins.

Assays have been received from hole FCC-18-0007, returning 2.0m of 0.78% Co and 0.83% Ni, including 1.1m of 1.35% Co and 1.47% Ni. The mineralized intercept was about 20m from surface in a zone containing several veins (Figure 2). The highest grade of 2.40% Co over 0.3m represents visible cobalt minerals that also likely contain nickel. Anomalous cobalt (>0.05%) occurs within wallrocks on the margins of the high grade zone without visible veining. Fine disseminated cobalt minerals are likely present. Silver is relatively low suggesting the Bellellen area may represent a cobalt-nickel rich zonation in proximity to the silver-rich vein system at Keeley-Frontier.

Table 1. Summary of assay results from hole FCC-18-0007
From To Width Co Ag Ni
Sample ID – m – m – m – % – g/t – %
E6607467 – 26.2 – 26.5 – 0.3 – 0.05 – 2 – 0.03
E6607468 – 26.5 – 26.8 – 0.3 – 0.73 – 1 – 1.26
E6607469 – 26.8 – 27.3 – 0.5 – 1.11 – 3 – 1.78
E6607470 – 27.3 – 27.6 – 0.3 – 2.40 – 2 – 1.18
E6607472 – 27.6 – 28.2 – 0.6 – 0.05 – 4 – 0.02
average – 26.2 – 28.2 – 2.0 – 0.78 – 3 – 0.83
including – 26.5 – 27.6 – 1.1 – 1.35 – 2 – 1.47

Note: Lengths are measured along the drill core and true widths of mineralization are not known at this time.
Several holes in this program intersected carbonate veins containing cobalt-nickel minerals as well as pyrite, pyrrhotite and chalcopyrite. In some holes tight folding of the volcanic rocks is evident and the Nipissing Diabase appears to be deeper than expected from bedrock mapping. The overall structural interpretation of the Bellellen area is ongoing to determine if these high grade cobalt-nickel veins are locally concentrated where folds converge.

Figure 1. Bedrock geology and location of drilling stations in the 2017 drilling program. Silver-cobalt veins shown are compiled from historic maps and locations shown not be considered exact.
Cobalt-bearing minerals in hole FCC-18-0007 occur as discrete bands associated with small, centimetre-sized calcite veins occurring within chloritized mafic volcanic rocks. Disseminated pyrite and arsenopyrite occur in the wallrocks of the veins. Arsenopyrite is associated with anomalous cobalt. The hole was collared over 150m south of the main Bellellen mine shaft. Drill holes FCC-18-0008 and FCC-18-0013 were drilled to test the dip extension of the cobalt mineralization in FCC-18-0007. Disseminated pyrite and arsenopyrite as well as calcite veins have also been noted in these holes.

Elsewhere in the Cobalt Camp at the Silverfields mine, high cobalt-nickel mineralization occurs along the margin of high grade silver veins, defining an extensive system. Silverfields produced approximately 18 million ounces of silver and was one of the largest producers, with over one million tonnes milled, in the Cobalt Camp.

Bellellen Mine
Mining at Bellellen mine began in 1909 around the same time the Haileybury, Frontier and Keeley mines began operations. The Bellellen mine contained high cobalt content relative to silver, thus it struggled to be economically viable in a silver mining era. Bellellen had intermittent production until 1943, when 12.3 tons of ore were shipped containing 9.25% Co and 11.55% Ni.
At Bellellen, the Nipissing Diabase has been interpreted at a depth of 125 metres below surface within a fold hinge. Between surface and the diabase, a thick sequence of mafic volcanic rocks occurs, suggesting depth potential to the known Co-Ag mineralization may exist in this area.

Samples from surface muckpiles at Bellellen returned high values of Co coincident with Ag, Ni and Cu in various styles of mineralization (see September 28, 2017 press release). Mineralogy work on disseminated style mineralization found Co as glaucodot (Co,Fe)AsS as well as Co-bearing pyrite (see October 5, 2017 press release). This style of mineralization had not previously been recognized in the Cobalt Camp and suggests a broad hydrothermal system may be present at Bellellen.
Quality Assurance and Quality Control

First Cobalt has implemented a quality-control program to comply with common industry best practices for sampling and analyses. Samples are collected from drill core from a range of 30 to 100cm length. Half-core samples are submitted for analyses. Standards and blanks are inserted every 20 samples. Duplicates are made from quarter core splits every 20 samples. Geochemical data were received from SGS Canada in Lakefield, Ontario, Canada. No QA/QC issues have been noted. SGS has used a sodium-peroxide fusion and ICP finish for analyses on all samples. Over-range (> 1%) Co and Ni are determined by a separate fusion and ICP finish.

Uranium Energy Corp Acquires the Diabase Project in the Athabasca Basin and Appoints Darcy Hirsekorn as District Geologist

Uranium Energy Corp (NYSE American: UEC, the “Company” or “UEC” – https://www.youtube.com/…) is pleased to announce that the Company has closed a definitive Property Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”), with Nuinsco Resources Limited (“Nuinsco”) to acquire 100% of the Diabase project (the “Diabase Project” or “Project”) located on the south rim of the Athabasca Basin uranium district in Saskatchewan, Canada.

Acquisition Highlights
• Total consideration for the acquisition is approximately $500,000 comprised of $240,000 in cash and 164,767 shares (at a deemed issuance price of $1.60 per common share).
• The property has seen in excess of US$ 20 million in historical exploration work, including over 21,000 meters of diamond drilling, geophysical surveying and surficial sampling data.
• The Project delivers a significant land package of 21,949 hectares, which overlies a highly prospective regional corridor within 75 km of Cameco’s Key Lake mill in a stable and leading jurisdiction for uranium exploration and mining.
• Efficient acquisition that preserves balance sheet flexibility in the bottom of the uranium cycle at less than 0.1% dilution to current UEC shareholders.
Clyde Yancey, VP-Exploration, stated: “Our acquisition strategy focuses on low cost, high value projects, the Diabase project is consistent with those objectives and UEC gains an opportunistic foothold in the Athabasca Basin. The project is an excellent addition to our pipeline of exploration properties for future development in a premier uranium district. We are also pleased to welcome Darcy Hirsekorn and his two decades of Athabasca Basin exploration experience to the Company’s geological team.”

Acquisition Details
UEC has now acquired the Diabase Project from Nuinsco for US$ 500,000 in aggregate consideration consisting of approximately: (i) US$ 240,000 in cash paid to Nuinsco and (ii) the issuance of 139,418 common shares to Nuinsco and 25,349 common shares to the original Project property owner.

Diabase Project Overview
The Diabase Project is a large exploration project 75 km west of Cameco’s Key Lake mill on the southern rim of Saskatchewan’s Athabasca Basin uranium district.

QIAGENs QuantiFERON-TB Gold Plus-Test erhält Zulassung in Japan

QIAGEN N.V. (NYSE: QGEN; Frankfurt Prime Standard: QIA) gab heute die Zulassung von QuantiFERON®-TB Gold Plus (QFT®-Plus) als In-vitro-Diagnostikum zur Erkennung von Tuberkulose (TB) durch das japanische Ministerium für Gesundheit, Arbeit und Soziales bekannt. QFT-Plus, die vierte Generation der marktführenden QuantiFERON-TB-Technologie von QIAGEN, ermöglicht dank eines innovativen CD4+/CD8+-Designs zur umfassenden Erkennung von Immunreaktionen und eines hochflexiblen Workflows zur Blutentnahme effiziente Screenings im Rahmen großer TB-Kontrollprogramme.

„QuantiFERON-TB Gold Plus setzt weltweit neue Maßstäbe im Bereich der Erkennung latenter TB-Infektionen. Die unternehmenseigene CD4+/CD8+ T-Zellen-Technologie von QFT-Plus mit spezifischen Antigenen zur CD8+ T-Zellen-Aktivierung kann für Patienten mit hohem Risiko wie z. B. HIV-positive oder aktiver TB ausgesetzte Personen wertvolle Erkenntnisse liefern“, sagte Dr. Masae Kawamura, Senior Director of Medical and Scientific Affairs bei QIAGEN. „Die japanische Regierung hat sich 2015 zum Ziel gesetzt, die TB-Inzidenzrate des Landes bis zum Jahr 2020 auf 10,0 von 100.000 Personen zu reduzieren. Wir freuen uns, zur Erreichung dieses Ziels beitragen zu können, indem wir QFT-Plus als wichtiges Instrument für die umfassenden TB-Kontrollprogramme in Japan bereitstellen.“

Vor der Zulassung von QFT-Plus in Japan wurde der Test 2017 in den USA zugelassen und in über 75 Ländern in Europa, im Nahen Osten sowie in Afrika, Asien und Lateinamerika eingeführt und bereits fast zwei Millionen mal eingesetzt. QFT-Plus baut auf QuantiFERON-TB Gold® (QFT®) auf, dem weltweit führenden Interferon-Gamma Release Assay (IGRA) der dritten Generation.

QFT-Plus ermöglicht dank innovativer Antigene zur Messung der zellvermittelten Immunreaktion auf CD4+ und CD8+ T-Zellen wissenschaftliche Fortschritte bei der Erkennung von Tuberkulose und bietet damit eine umfassendere Beurteilung von TB-Infektionen. CD8+ T-Zellen spielen bei der Immunität gegenüber dem Mycobacterium tuberculosis nachweislich eine wichtige Rolle. QFT-Plus bietet die folgenden neuen Funktionen:

Optimierte CD8 T-Zellen-Reaktionen – Unterstützung der Forschung im Bereich der Risikostratifizierung latenter TB-Infektionen, die sich zu einer aktiven Erkrankung entwickeln. Veröffentlichte Belege heben die zukünftige potenzielle Rolle der CD8+ T-Zellen bei der Unterscheidung zwischen aktiver und latenter Tuberkulose, der Erkennung von kürzlich oder bereits früher erfolgten Infektionen, der Bestimmung der TB in gewissen Populationen wie bei Patienten mit HIV-Begleitinfektion und kleinen Kindern sowie der Bewertung eines Ansprechens von Patienten auf die TB-Behandlung hervor. Kein anderer Test ist sowohl für CD4+ als auch für CD8+ T-Zellen-Reaktionen optimiert.

Erweiterte Optionen zur Blutentnahme – Dank mehrerer Blutentnahmeoptionen für mehr Flexibilität bei Entnahme und Transport können Kunden den Testablauf selbst gestalten. Einen flexibleren Transport ins Labor ermöglicht QFT plus durch die neue Standardoption für die Entnahme im  Einzelröhrchen, mit der große Volumina und extern entnommene Proben bis zu 53 Stunden nach Blutabnahme verarbeitet werden können. Zudem kann zur direkten Blutentnahme weiterhin der „Assay im Entnahmeröhrchen“ für die sofortige Stimulierung der Blutprobe verwendet werden. Die Transportzeiten entsprechen dabei denen von QuantiFERON-TB Gold (QFT), dem Assay der dritten Generation.

Hohe Sensitivität und Spezifität – Mit einer Spezifizität von mehr als 97 % und einer Sensitivität von mehr als 94 % liefert QFT-Plus präzisere Ergebnisse als der über hundert Jahre alte Tuberkulin-Hauttest (TST).

Tuberkulose ist eine bakterielle Infektionskrankheit, die sich hauptsächlich durch den Husten von Patienten mit der aktiven, pulmonalen Form der Erkrankung verbreitet. Die World Health Organization (WHO) geht von weltweit 10,4 Millionen neuen Fällen aktiver TB und 1,7 Millionen Todesfällen im Jahr 2016 aus. Patienten mit latenter TB-Infektion (LTBI) wurden zwar mit dem Erreger infiziert, weisen aber bis zum Fortschreiten der Krankheit zur aktiven Tuberkulose keinerlei Symptome auf. Das Screening von Risikogruppen und die Behandlung von LTBI-Patienten spielen im Rahmen der Tuberkulosekontrolle in entwickelten Ländern und Schwellenländern weltweit eine wichtige Rolle.

Einige der Angaben in dieser Pressemitteilung können im Sinne von Section 27A des U.S. Securities Act (US-Wertpapiergesetz) von 1933 in ergänzter Fassung und Section 21E des U.S. Securities Exchange Act (US-Börsengesetz) von 1934 in ergänzter Fassung als zukunftsgerichtete Aussagen („forward-looking statements") gelten.

Strategy 2022: Jenoptik will intensify its focus on key competencies in photonics

 

 

.
• New records for 2017: revenue of around 748 million euros (+9.2 percent) and EBIT of almost 78 million euros (+17.6 percent)
• Target for 2018 is to increase revenue with further rise in profitability above previous forecast
• New Group strategy is based on more focus, innovation, and internationalization

Jenoptik achieved new record figures in the fiscal year 2017. According to provisional calculations, revenue grew 9.2 percent to around 748 million euros (prior year 684.8 million euros). EBIT improved at a faster rate than revenue, to just under 78 million euros (prior year 66.2 million euros), equating to an EBIT margin of 10.4 percent (prior year 9.7 percent). Jenoptik saw a strong fourth quarter in terms of order intake; over the full year, the company received new orders with a combined value of approximately 803 million euros (prior year 733.8 million euros). Overall very good business performance was facilitated by strong demand from the semiconductor equipment industry and, on a regional level, strong growth in the US. Despite a substantial increase in capital expenditure, the free cash flow remained at a good level of around 72 million euros (prior year 79.4 million euros). “Our highly encouraging performance and solid financial resources let us look into the future with a lot of optimism,” says Stefan Traeger, President & CEO of JENOPTIK AG since May 1, 2017.

Focus on photonic technologies

The new strategy will enable a clearer focus on photonic technologies in all of the company’s initiatives and developments: “In a nutshell, this is Jenoptik’s strength and its core area of expertise: our photonics-based products and services provide our customers with the competitive edge they need. We’re going to concentrate our work on applications for attractive and promising photonic markets and continue to develop our business by focusing on ‘More Light’,” says Stefan Traeger. Areas of particular interest for Jenoptik will include information processing, smart manufacturing, sensing and metrology, as well as biophotonics.

The future organizational structure will shore up the focus on photonic technologies for high-growth markets and combine activities based on equal business models and a similar understanding of markets and customers. The OEM business will be concentrated under the headline “Light & Optics”, the business with the capital goods industry under “Light & Production,” and the business with the public sector under “Light & Safety”. “This leads to three divisions with shared technological competencies in photonics,” says the Jenoptik CEO. These competencies cover expertise relating to optics, sensors, imaging, robotics, data analysis, and human-machine interfaces. The activities carried out in today’s Defense & Civil Systems segment, which are based on mechatronic technologies, will be operated under a new, independent brand. “This will allow us to better reflect specific market and customer requirements in this business segment,” says Stefan Traeger.

For 2018, the first steps involved in implementing this new strategy, which is supported by Jenoptik’s Supervisory Board, include developing the divisions’ strategic trajectories in line with the Group strategy and implementing active portfolio management. Chief Financial Officer Hans-Dieter Schumacher: “Our business and reporting structures will accordingly change on January 1, 2019. Up until the end of 2018, Jenoptik will continue to report on the basis of its current segment structure.”

Information and preliminary figures for the segments

The Optics & Life Science segment ended the 2017 fiscal year with new revenue and earnings records, primarily due to a very positive pace of growth in the semiconductor equipment industry. Revenue rose 17 percent to over 259 million euros; EBIT improved significantly to more than 50 million euros (prior year 221.5 and 33.4 million euros respectively). Both divisions, Optical Systems as well as Healthcare & Industry, contributed to the segment’s growth in 2017. As part of the future strategy, these divisions will be merged. The combined business will continue to be a key OEM partner for customers in the semiconductor equipment, communications, and biophotonics industries with optical components, modules, and systems for applications.

The Mobility segment reported growth of around 9 percent, to approximately 270 million euros (prior year 247.7 million euros). EBIT came to just under 19 million euros, roughly 6 million euros below prior year (prior year 24.4 million euros), in particular due to one-off costs in a traffic safety project. As part of the revised strategy, the two divisions of this segment, Automotive and Traffic Solutions, will focus on attractive end-customer markets in the fields of industrial manufacturing, public safety, and infrastructure. The key driver of growth here is projected to be the combination of our expertise with modern sensor systems, imaging, and data competency.

Revenue in the Defense & Civil Systems segment exceeded 219 million euros in 2017, with an EBIT of around 19 million euros, matching the high levels of the prior year (prior year 218.3 and 19.1 million euros respectively). Going forward, the photonic businesses of this segment will be carved-out and merged with the activities in today’s Optics & Life Science segment. The non-photonic business will commercialize its products and services under a new brand name in future, in order to better position it in the market place. 

Growth is to further accelerate in coming years

For 2018, the Executive Board confirms its original growth target, aiming for revenue to be between 790 and 810 million euros. EBIT margin is expected to be in a range between 10.5 and 11.0 percent, up versus prior forecasts of around 10 percent.

Jenoptik aims to see accelerated growth in the years ahead. By 2022, revenue is expected to show an increase in the mid- to high-single-digit percentage range per year on average. The EBITDA margin will also improve, to around 16 percent by 2022. Provisional calculations indicate the 2017 EBITDA margin to be slightly above 14 percent. “We want to outgrow our markets and gain shares in our market segments”, says Stefan Traeger. The mid-term growth targets defined in the new strategy include active portfolio management with potential divestments and acquisitions.

“Now that we’ve eliminated debt and established the Jenoptik brand, we’re in an ideal position to move Jenoptik into the next stage of its development,” says CFO Hans-Dieter Schumacher. With a sharper focus on photonic technologies, topics such as internationalization and innovation become even more important for the company: Jenoptik’s R+D output including customer-specific projects is due to grow to approximately 10 percent of revenue by 2022 (2017: approx. 8.6 percent). 

International diversity will also distinguish Jenoptik more strongly than in the past. Stefan Traeger: “That means international teams and more decisions being taken locally.” There will be production facilities and local R+D teams in all key regions, and at least one division will be based outside of Germany by 2022. “We’re building on prior achievements and are now entering a new period of accelerated growth. Our strategic reorientation gives our employees and our shareholders a clear perspective in a strong company,” summarizes Stefan Traeger.

This announcement can contain forward-looking statements that are based on current expectations and certain assumptions of the management of the Jenoptik Group. A variety of known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors can cause the actual results, the financial situation, the development or the performance of the company to be materially different from the announced forward-looking statements. Such factors can be, among others, changes in currency exchange rates and interest rates, the introduction of competing products or the change of the business strategy. The company does not assume any obligation to update such forward-looking statements in the light of future developments.

Sibanye-Stillwater operating update for the six months and year ended 31 December 2017

Sibanye-Stillwater (Tickers: SGL (JSE) and SBGL (NYSE) – https://www.youtube.com/…) is pleased to report positive operating results for the year ended 31 December 2017, with all the operations delivering solid results in the second half of the year.

SA gold operations

Gold production for the year ended 31 December 2017 of 43,600kg (1.4Moz) was higher than guidance (provided in the Q3 operating results) of between 42,000kg and 43,000 kg (1.35Moz and 1.38Moz), with gold production for the second half of the year 4% higher than for the first half, despite the closure of the Cooke operations in October 2017.

All-in sustaining cost (AISC) for the year is expected to be approximately R483,000/kg (US$1,130/oz) which is better than guidance of between R485,000/kg and R495,000/kg (US$1,115/oz and US$1,140/oz), due to increase in production in the second half of the year, which resulted in AISC declining to approximately R480,000/kg (US$1,130/oz), from R485,441/kg (US$1,143/oz) in the first half of the year.

Total capital expenditure for the year was R3.4 billion (US$ 256 million).

SA PGM operations

The positive momentum at the SA PGM operations continued, with attributable PGM production of about 1.19M 4Eoz for the year ended 31 December 2017, 4% higher than the upper range of guidance of 1.15M 4Eoz with attributable PGM production for the second half of the year of 603,635 4Eoz, 2% higher than for the first half. AISC is expected to be approximately R10,300/4Eoz (US$775/4Eoz), which is lower than guidance provided of between R10,500/4Eoz and R11,000/4Eoz (US$775/4Eoz and US$815/4Eoz). AISC for the second half of the year is expected to be approximately R10,300/4Eoz (US$770/4Eoz), 1% lower than the first half.

Total attributable capital expenditure for the year was R1.3 billion (US$95 million) (and total capital expenditure, excluding Mimosa, was R1.0 billion (US$78 million)).

US PGM operations

The US PGM operations produced about 376,300 2Eoz for the eight month period since acquisition by Sibanye-Stillwater, which was in line with guidance of between 350,000 (2Eoz) and 380,000 (2Eoz). Pleasingly, the US operations delivered record recycling throughput for the year and, as previously disclosed, the Blitz project yielded first PGM output in October 2017, ahead of schedule. AISC of approximately US$650/2Eoz for the eight months is in line with guidance of between US$620/2Eoz and US$650/2Eoz. PGM production for the six months ended 31 December 2017 was approximately 282,600 2Eoz, at an AISC of US$660/2Eoz.

Total capital expenditure for the eight months ended 31 December 2017 was US$124 million.

Sibanye-Stillwater CEO, Neal Froneman commented: “This is positive set of operating results, which, combined with the restructuring of the Cooke operations completed in the fourth quarter of 2018, provides a solid base for deleveraging the Group in 2018.”

Note: All rand figures have been converted to US dollar using the average R/US$ exchange rate for the year of 13.31, 13.21 for H1 2017 and 13.41 for H2 2017.

Sibanye-Stillwater safely brings Beatrix employees to surface after power outage

Johannesburg, 2 February 2018: Sibanye-Stillwater (Tickers JSE: SGL and NYSE: SBGL – https://www.youtube.com/… ) is pleased to advise that all underground employees at its Beatrix operations in the Free State, have safely returned to the surface.

A severe storm during the night of 31 January 2018, caused the collapse of both the primary and secondary Eskom powerlines supplying electricity to the Beatrix Operations, causing a power surge and outage at all three shafts at its Beatrix Operations. As a result the majority of the night shift was unable to be hoisted to surface.

Emergency power supply from backup generators enabled 64 employees to return to surface at Beatrix 1 shaft and 272 employees at Beatrix 4 shaft during the course of the following morning, but damage to the winder control systems and generators at the Beatrix 3 shaft resulting from the power surge resulted in 955 employees remaining underground at the shaft stations until Eskom power had been restored to the mine.

Management remained in control throughout and were confident that the decisions made were in the interests of employee wellbeing. Mine rescue and medical teams were mobilised and due care was taken to ensure employees were safe and had access to food and water. Detailed contingency plans were made mine rescue teams to evacuate employees through the second outlet at Beatrix 1 shaft, in the event that power was not restored.

Through a tremendous effort to install temporary power line pylons by both mine management and Eskom, power was successfully restored during the morning of 2 February 2018 and all employees were safely hoisted to surface.

Employees will undergo throughout medical examination and trauma counselling, together with their families, if required. It is expected that operations will resume on Monday 5 February 2018.

Sibanye-Stillwater CEO, Neal Froneman commented: “I wish to thank the Beatrix team and the SA Regional management for the prompt and composed response to this potentially grave situation. I would also like to commend Eskom for the professional and efficient way they rose to the challenge to restore power to the operations. This is significant rescue effort and one that all who participated in, can be extremely proud off, and it is a clear demonstration of the competence within the South African mining industry. The actions taken by management and decisions taken resulted in all of our employees returning safely to their families.”

U.S. Gold Corp. Announces New Copper King Discovery Zone from Fall 2017 Drilling Results

U.S. Gold Corp. (NASDAQ: USAU – https://www.youtube.com/… ) today is pleased to announce the discovery of a new zone of base and precious metals mineralization west of the existing Copper King deposit.
In late November and early December 2017, a four-hole, reverse circulation drilling program (3,945 feet/1,202 meters total) was completed, and assays from Bureau Veritas Minerals (BV Labs), Reno, Nevada, have just been obtained. Hole number CK17-01rc encountered a composite of almost 700 feet of base and precious metal mineralization beginning almost at the surface; see Table 1.

Table 1: Summary of fall 2017 Copper King drill results, based on > 20 ft intercepts including > 0.1% copper
The fall 2017 Copper King four-hole drilling program was designed to provide a first-pass drill test of anomalies obtained from a ground magnetics survey conducted in June combined with an induced polarization (IP) survey conducted by Zonge Geosciences Inc. in October 2017. Both geophysics programs were more detailed and comprehensive than previous surveys conducted on the project. Objectives of the IP survey were to 1.) delineate sulfide concentrations via the chargeability and 2.) discriminate lithologies via the resistivity. Rock magnetic expressions were delineated with the earlier ground magnetics survey. Gold mineralization at Copper King is known to be commonly, but not necessarily exclusively, associated with magnetite. The association of copper sulfide mineralization with gold mineralization in the historic mining area suggested that IP would be the more appropriate technique for detection of similarly mineralized material. The Copper King project is largely located on State of Wyoming managed lands. Permitting and bonding for drilling at Copper King through a “Notification of Intent to Explore for Noncoal Minerals” was readily and quickly facilitated and approved by the State of Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality based in Cheyenne, Wyoming.
Assay results and interval thicknesses obtained in CK17-01rc are similar in value and character to assay intervals encountered in the Copper King deposit “main zone.” Assay results and characteristics of mineralization in this hole indicate the presence of a heretofore previously undiscovered zone of significant mineralization on the Copper King project. The chargeability anomaly, drilled by hole CK17-01rc, exhibited on the attached Figure 10 from the Wright Geophysics Nov. 5, 2017, report, is the strongest anomaly obtained by the IP survey on the property, and it is an anomaly that had not previously been specifically tested by drilling.

Dave Mathewson, Vice President of Exploration for U.S. Gold Corp., stated, “This is an exciting turn of events for the Copper King project. Copper King has had a long history of several exploration programs conducted by numerous companies. This zone of mineralization, identified in hole CK17-01rc, apparently escaped all previous detection and, just as importantly, the bulk of this particular chargeability anomaly has not been drill-tested. We look forward to the prospect of building a greater metal endowment on the Copper King property. A follow-up drill program is currently being planned.”
Edward Karr, President and CEO of U.S. Gold Corp., stated, “We are very encouraged with this western step-out hole. This new zone of mineralization is 200 meters away from the existing deposit. This new discovery zone has shown consistent mineral grade from near the surface to the bottom of the hole. Mine Development Associates updated our Copper King Preliminary Economic Assessment technical report in December 2017. The current known deposit shows a Net Present Value of $178.5 million at $1,275 gold and $2.80 copper. An infill drilling program is being planned and designed to connect this new discovery zone back to the existing deposit. In addition, the best part of the IP anomaly is further west from this step-out hole. We believe this new discovery zone could extend further west and add additional potential upside to the known deposit. The presence of silver and zinc could also increase the overall future Copper King value.”

QIAGEN erzielt Einigung über den Kauf von STAT-Dx und plant den Launch der nächsten Generation einer voll integrierten Multiplex-Testplattform zur syndromischen Testung

QIAGEN N.V. (NASDAQ: QGEN; Frankfurt Prime Standard: QIA) hat heute bekannt gegeben, eine Einigung über die Übernahme von STAT-Dx erzielt zu haben. STAT-Dx, ein privat geführtes Unternehmen, entwickelt die nächste Generation von fortschrittlichen Multiplex-Diagnostika für die einstufige, voll integrierte molekulare Analyse häufiger Syndrome, basierend auf Echtzeit-PCR-Technologie und bewährten Chemikalien von QIAGEN.

Das System, welches nach Abschluss der Transaktion in der zweiten Jahreshälfte 2018 den Markennamen QIAstat-Dx erhalten soll, ermöglicht eine skalierbare, zeitgleiche „Sample to Insight“-Verarbeitung von bis zu 48 molekularen Zielen, um Syndrome schwerer Infektionen der Atemwege oder des Magen-Darm-Trakts zu diagnostizieren, sowie als Begleitdiagnostika für onkologische Anwendungen. Mit kostengünstigen, einfach zu handhabenden Tests, die für jeden klinischen Probentyp geeignet sind, kann das System sowohl qualitative als auch quantitative Informationen über die genaue Ursache verschiedener Syndrome in etwa einer Stunde liefern. QIAGEN ist davon überzeugt, dass dieses proprietäre System zur weiteren Verbreitung von molekularen Tests beitragen kann.

Das System, basierend auf der proprietären DiagCORE®-Technologie, wurde im April 2017 anlässlich des Europäischen Kongresses für klinische Mikrobiologie und Infektionskrankheiten (ECCMID) vorgestellt und erhielt im Januar 2018 die erste CE-IVD-Kennzeichnung. Die Markteinführung der umfangreichen Atemwegs- und Magen-Darm-Panels ist für die zweite Jahreshälfte 2018 in Europa geplant. Die Zulassung und Vermarktung in den USA ist für 2019 geplant, in weiteren Ländern weltweit gemäß den regulatorischen Vorgaben. Weitere Tests für die Bereiche Infektionskrankheiten, Überwachung der Immunreaktion und Begleitdiagnostika für onkologische Anwendungen befinden sich in der Entwicklung.

Das System hat viele entscheidende Vorteile:

  •  Leistungsstarke Technologie: Basierend auf leistungsfähigen Proben- und Assay-Technologien von QIAGEN wird das System signifikante Synergien für eine echte „Sample to Insight“-Verarbeitung selbst anspruchsvollster Proben bei Tests auf Infektionskrankheiten sowie eine breite Palette weiterer Anwendungsbereiche, die mit den derzeit verfügbaren Systemen nicht möglich sind, erzeugen. Bei den Proben handelt es sich beispielsweise um Gewebeproben in der Pathologie, flüssige Proben oder schwierig zu handhabende Sputumproben bei Infektionskrankheiten mit direkter Verarbeitung des Abstrichs im System
  • Flexibler Ansatz zur Individualisierung der Ergebnisse: Das proprietäre Workflow-Design bietet Laboren die Möglichkeit, einen maßgeschneiderten Ansatz für die selektive Analyse und das Dokumentieren der getesteten molekularen Targets zu wählen. Dieser Ansatz ergänzt die derzeit verfügbaren Systeme, die die gleichzeitige Verarbeitung von molekularen Targets erfordern, die in der Patientenprobe als irrelevant nachgewiesen wurden, wodurch die Erstattung erschwert werden könnte
  • Extrem kostengünstiges System: Für die Kartuschen des Systems fallen deutlich niedrigere Herstellungskosten als bei anderen Systemen an, was insbesondere vor dem Hintergrund der sich dynamisch verändernden Erstattungslandschaft in den USA und anderen Märkten eine breitere und wirtschaftlichere routinemäßige Anwendung ermöglichen dürfte. Die nahtlose bidirektionale Integration in Laborinformationssysteme (LIS) führt zu weiteren Effizienzsteigerungen und Kostensenkungen im Bereich Systemmanagement.
  • Multianalysefunktionen: Das System ist das einzige syndromische Multiplex-Testsystem, das auf der Echtzeit-PCR-Technologie (Polymerase-Kettenreaktion) basiert und zusätzlich noch die Fähigkeit zur Verarbeitung von Immunassays besitzt. Damit bietet es eine einzigartige Technologiebreite und eine unübertroffene Target- und Anwendungsvielfalt sowie hervorragende Optionen für das Krankheitsmanagement.
  • Integration der Echtzeit-PCR-Technologie: Mit diesem System können die Kunden biologische Targets genau quantifizieren, was besonders bei Onkologie- oder Transplantationspatienten wichtig ist, und in der Folge bessere Behandlungsentscheidungen treffen. Echtzeit-PCR ermöglicht zudem die Portabilität eines breiten Portfolios bereits bestehender Echtzeit-PCR-Tests auf das System.

„QIAstat-Dx stellt die nächste Generation innovativer Multiplex-Syndrom-Tests dar, ist mit leistungsfähigen Probentechnologien von QIAGEN und einem Echtzeit-PCR-System ausgestattet und bietet ein erheblich breiteres Spektrum an Anwendungen mit der Kosteneffizienz, die in der derzeitigen Erstattungsumgebung gefordert wird. Weitere Anwendungsgebiete für dieses System umfassen Begleitdiagnostika, quantitative Analysen und Immunassay-Tests, die den Kunden ein neues Maß an Flexibilität und präziser Diagnose bieten und mit dem Ziel entwickelt wurden, bessere Ergebnisse für Patienten und Gesundheitssysteme zu erbringen“, so Peer M. Schatz, Chief Executive Officer von QIAGEN N.V. „Wir sind hocherfreut, dass wir QIAstat-Dx unserem Portfolio von ‚Sample to Insight‘-Lösungen hinzufügen können. Dies bestätigt erneut, dass wir unseren Vorsprung im Bereich Probentechnologien nutzen, dass wir eine Führungsposition bei der Bereitstellung von Lösungen für den Nachweis von Infektionskrankheiten einnehmen, und dass unsere Vertriebsteams weltweit mit großem Erfolg arbeiten.“

„Wir freuen uns darauf, die Vermarktung unserer Technologie mit großem Tempo voranzubringen, um die medizinische Versorgung im Sinne der Patienten und Gesundheitsdienstleister durch schnelle, kostengünstige syndromische Tests zu optimieren. Nach Transaktionsabschluss können wir bei der Entwicklung dieses Best-in-Class-Systems auf den Erfolgen unseres hervorragenden Teams aufbauen und gleichzeitig auf die Ressourcen von QIAGEN, die in einer umfangreichen Forschung und Entwicklung und einer weltweiten kommerziellen Reichweite bestehen, zurückgreifen,“ sagte Jordi Carrera, Mitgründer und Chief Executive Officer von STAT-Dx.

Das System arbeitet mit kosteneffizienten Einwegkartuschen mit integrierter Probenaufbereitung und enthält alle Reagenzien im System. Die Kartuschen basieren dank der langjährigen Zusammenarbeit auf hochwertigen Chemikalien von QIAGEN. Ein Labortechniker muss lediglich eine Kartusche mit einer klinischen Probe beladen und sie in den Analysator einlegen – ein Vorgang, der weniger als eine Minute in Anspruch nimmt. Das flexible, modulare System mit bidirektionaler LIS-Schnittstelle (Laborinformationssystem) ist für den Einsatz in einer Reihe von patientennahen klinischen Umgebungen konzipiert, sodass keine Verzögerungen mehr durch den Probenversand an ein zentrales Labor auftreten.

Die Kartuschen werden in einem skalierbaren, proprietären Analysator verarbeitet, der bis zu acht Modulen beinhalten kann, und der die Kartuschen entsprechend den zuvor festgelegten Test-Protokollen unabhängig voneinander analysiert. Die Bedienung erfolgt über einen Touchscreen, der einfache Schritt-für-Schritt-Anweisungen bietet. Es ist geplant, mit QIAstat-Dx den ersten Analysator zu entwickeln, der die Verarbeitung der höchsten Anzahl an Multiplex-Assays für die Molekulardiagnostik in Kombination mit der Zusatzfunktion der Verarbeitung von Immunassays bietet.

Die Nachfrage nach syndromischen Tests mit Molekulardiagnostik nimmt rasant zu. Im Bereich Atemwegssyndrome und Grippetests schätzt QIAGEN den gesamten Zielmarkt auf etwa 1,5 Millionen Tests pro Jahr in den USA und 1,1 Millionen in Europa. Im Bereich gastrointestinaler Syndrome wird die Zahl der zurzeit durchgeführten Panels in den USA auf 2,6 Millionen pro Jahr und in Europa auf etwa zwei Millionen geschätzt, wobei in einer relativ kleinen, aber schnell wachsenden Zahl dieser Tests molekulare Diagnostik eingesetzt wird.

Zusammenfassung der Transaktion

Basierend auf dem erfolgreichen Abschluss bestimmter Entwicklungsmeilensteine durch STAT-Dx wird QIAGEN alle Anteile an STAT-Dx zu einem Betrag von etwa 147 Millionen US-Dollar in bar übernehmen, mit zusätzlichen Zahlungen von bis zu 44 Millionen US-Dollar basierend auf dem Erreichen von regulatorischen und unternehmerischen Meilensteinen. Der Kauf soll im zweiten Quartal 2018 abgeschlossen sein und aus den vorhandenen Barreserven finanziert werden. Für das Jahr 2018 rechnet QIAGEN mit einem Umsatz von ca. 7 Millionen US-Dollar durch die Markteinführung von QIAstat-Dx in Europa und anderen Märkten. Für das Jahr 2019 werden Umsätze von mindestens 30 Millionen US-Dollar erwartet. Aufgrund der für den Start der Vermarktung, die Zulassung durch die US-amerikanischen Regulierungsbehörden und die Entwicklung von Tests zu tätigenden Investitionen wird die Transaktion voraussichtlich im gesamten Jahr 2018 einen Verwässerungseffekt auf den bereinigten Gewinn pro Aktie von ca. 0,05 US-Dollar pro Aktie haben, jedoch im Jahr 2019 bereits neutral sein.
