Accreditation of the in-house test laboratory according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005

The MEN in-house test laboratory has been accredited by the German accreditation body DAkkS, according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005 for EMC, environmental simulation tests and safety of electrical equipment.

Qualified Test Reports for Railway and Industry

With accreditation according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005, MEN can now supply recognized test reports for further approvals of the end system. The accreditation covers tests regarding EMC, environmental simulation and safety of electrical equipment for the railway market and industry.

This means that MEN can now deliver accredited test reports that can be produced at short notice or can be better planned, without customers or MEN itself being dependent on an external laboratory with correspondingly long waiting times. This allows MEN to add another piece to its integrated supply chain.

Additional Qualification: Compliance with EN 50124-1

As a special feature, compliance with EN 50124-1 was also confirmed, which specifies the insulation coordination of air and creepage distances in railway applications in order to ensure electrical safety and to avoid short circuits or even oversizing of the insulation. Across Germany, only about 5 companies are accredited for EN 50124-1. 

The MEN QM system includes cable monitoring to check the suitable temperature and humidity in the laboratories as well as DAkkS-accredited measuring instruments with sophisticated DAkkS calibration.

Fast Completion thanks to Existing Know-How

Within only 14 months after the kick-off the goal was reached – the complex accreditation was completed. This was only possible in the short time since industry-specific QM certifications from the aerospace (EN/AS 9100), railway (IRIS – ISO/TS 22163) and experience from the safety sector according to DO-254 and for Safety Integrity Level up to SIL 4 were already available.

Capacities have also been expanded, e.g. to cover the area of electrical safety: testing of devices for electrical safety, overvoltage, short circuit, personal protection, mechanical hazards.

Zinc One Reports Remaining Drill Results from Mina Grande Sur, Bongará Zinc Mine Project, Peru

Zinc One Resources Inc. (TSX-V: Z; OTC Markets: ZZZOF; Frankfurt: RH33 – “Zinc One” or the “Company”)  is pleased to announce the results from the last 27 drill holes of the Mina Grande Sur zone, Bongará Zinc Mine project located in north-central Peru.  These drill holes are located in the northern sector of Mina Grande Sur.  Holes identified as MGS18081 through 95 were drilled along the northern perimeter of mineralization delineating the northern extent of mineralization in the zone.  Noteworthy intercepts include 18.0 metres of 36.0% zinc from MGS18077 and 11.5 metres of 32.0% zinc from MGS18080.  Overall, 95 holes for a total of 2,328.4 metres have been drilled at Mina Grande Sur.

Jim Walchuck, President and CEO of Zinc One commented, “The Mina Grande Sur drill program delineated near-surface, zinc-oxide mineralization over a length of 350 metres in a north-south direction and as much as 200 metres in an east-west direction, open to the south and southwest.  Along with the zinc-oxide deposit discovered at Mina Chica, we expect the success of this drill program to be manifested by a contribution to the total project’s resource estimate, which we anticipate will be completed Q4 2018.”

Mina Grande Sur Additional Drill Results Highlights:

  • Results from 68 holes were reported previously (see news releases from March 29, May 7, May 29, and July 26, 2018).
  • Significant new intercepts include:
    • MGS18077 – 18.0 metres of 36.0% zinc, from 21.0 metres drill depth
      • True vertical thickness of 15.6 metres from true vertical depth of 18.2 metres
    • MCH18079 – 12.0 metres of 22.7% zinc, from surface
      • True vertical thickness of 9.2 metres
    • MGS18080 – 11.5 metres of 32.0% zinc, from 43.5 metres drill depth
      • True vertical thickness of 8.8 metres from true vertical depth of 33.3 metres
    • Mineralization at Mina Grande Sur includes zinc oxides, carbonates and silicates hosted by soils, highly-weathered carbonates, and fine- to coarse-grained dolomites, most of which are brecciated.

Mina Grande Sur is one of three known zones of high-grade, near-surface zinc-oxide mineralization along a 1.4 kilometre mineralized trend that was tested by this drill program., which consisted of 264 holes for 7,930.6 metres. All drill results from Bongarita, Mina Chica, and Mina Grande Sur have now been reported with results from Mina Grande Centro and Mina Grande Norte to be released in the coming weeks.

Geology and Discussion of Results

The zinc mineralization at the Bongará Zinc Mine project is classified as a Mississippi Valley-type deposit and is mostly hosted by strongly dolomitized brecciated limestones that are stratabound.  The mineralization can also occur as tabular bodies with irregular boundaries, which is a characteristic of that mineralization encountered along the periphery of breccias, especially at Mina Chica.  Hydrozincite (zinc oxide mineral), smithsonite (zinc carbonate mineral), hemimorphite (zinc silicate mineral), and a zinc-aluminum-iron silicate are the primary zinc minerals that are hosted by soils, dolomitized breccias, heavily-weathered fractured and vuggy dolomitized limestones, and fine- to coarse-grained dolomitized limestones. 

The results from drill holes MGS18069 through MGS18095 at Mina Grande Sur can be found below in Table 1.

Sampling and Analytical Protocols

Zinc One follows a systematic and rigorous Quality Control/Quality Assurance program overseen by Dr. Bill Williams, COO and Director of Zinc One.

The sample from each core run is placed in a 60-centimetre long, plastic core box that has five columns.   Core recovery, rock quality designation (“RQD”), and geologic features are logged and sample intervals, which are generally <2 metres, are chosen. Each core box is photographed and then sampled with a spatula, if soil and heavily-weathered rock, or cut with a core saw, 50% of which is placed in a sample bag and stored on site in a secure location. The Company independently inserts certified control standards, blanks, and duplicates, all of which comprise at least 20% of the sample batch, to monitor sample preparation and analytical quality.  The samples are stored in a secure area until such time they are shipped to the CERTIMIN laboratory in Lima (ISO 9001 Certified) for preparation and assay. At the laboratory, samples are dried, crushed, pulverized and then a four-acid digestion is applied.  This is followed by the ICP-AES analytical technique for 33 elements, including lead.  The same method is used to assay zinc for values up to 20%.  If zinc values exceed 20%, it is then analyzed using a titration method.  The laboratory also inserts blanks and standards as well as including duplicate analyses.

Panoro Announces the Approval of the Environmental Impact Assessment Expansion at Cotabambas Project, Peru

Panoro Minerals Ltd. (TSXV: PML, Lima: PML, Frankfurt: PZM) (“Panoro”, the “Company”- Panoro is pleased to report the approval of the expansion of the Semi-detailed Environmental Impact Assessment (EIAsd) for the Cotabambas Project in Peru.  This is the second expansion approved to the original EIAsd and includes the area of the Chaupec Skarn target zone.

“The approval of the expansion of the EIAsd allows Panoro to extend its exploration drilling program into the highly prospective areas of Cluster 2.  Cluster 2 has been the subject of extensive recent mapping, sampling and geophysical survey studies by Panoro.  These studies have identified the occurrence of skarn Cu-Au-Ag mineralization over extensive areas.  Panoro’s exploration plans for Cluster 2 will target the addition of high grade near surface skarn mineralization to the current mine plan to further enhance the economics of the project.  The scale of the resource potential in Cluster 2 may be significant with the potential to increase the scale of the project identified in the current PEA”, stated Luquman Shaheen, President & CEO.

The Ministry of Energy and Mines of Peru approved the second modification of the EIAsd of the Cotabambas project expanding the approved area for exploration from 1,401 hectares to 2,923 hectares.  The original approved area permitted 311 drilling platforms in the area of the Ccalla, Azulccaca, Guaclle, Petra-David and María José targets in Cluster 1.  The expanded area, of 1,522 hectares located to the west of the original area, as shown on the linked plan, permits an additional 295 drilling platforms to explore the geologic targets of the Zones I, II and III of the Chaupec Skarn target zone in Cluster 2.

The first phase of the 2018 drilling campaign was completed in Cluster 1 in April with a total of 2,172 meters of drilling. The second phase is planned to start soon in the Cluster 2, into the Chaupec Skarn Target.

Distribution of the exploration areas in the Cotabambas Project– EIAsd Polygons can be found here:

The Top 30 Global Retailers Revealed in Internationalisation Retail Index

The Internationalisation Retail Index from Loqate, which was created in partnership with Planet Retail RNG, Retail Week and The World Retail Congress, deciphers the demands of today’s digital savvy consumer and analyses the strategies executed to increase the top 30’s international appeal.

As globalisation and cross-border expansion in retail becomes increasingly prominent features in the digital age, businesses are adapting their strategies to take advantage of international opportunities.

While it’s unsurprising to see retail royalty Amazon featured in the top 30, there are a refreshing number of challenger brands hot on its heels. Boohoo, Topshop and Zalando appear high up the rankings – particularly surprising when compared with the placing of colossal retailers from the US such as Walmart and Walgreens Boots Alliance, as well as the UK’s biggest retailer, Tesco.

In the index, one of the main principles the ranking is based on is how retailers serve their international customers outside their home country. Do they offer a website in different languages and can customers simply select their currency? But it’s also important how retailers communicate with customers and if they identify special needs in different regions. How interactive are these retailers acting with their customers, i. e. do they offer apps or mobile optimised websites? Do they offer a multichannel platform? How do they support customers during the order process, i. e. completing their address automatically?

Besides the surprising names already mentioned above, in Europe the top online retailer are for example asos, a fashion retailer with headquarter in the UK. Zooplus, trading with pet food and everything around pets with headquarter in Germany. Sephora, a French retailer for cosmetics. And HelloFresh, a subscription based food delivery service for self-cooking from Germany.

Steffen Preuschoff, VP Sales Europe at Loqate, a GBG solution commented: “HelloFresh is one of the most impressive brands in the index. The company was found in 2011 and delivered in 2017 goods and services to three different continents. To grow to an international company, competing against Amazons food delivery service, has only been possible through ongoing investments in Marketing, Logistics and HR. A seamless customer experience and regional specifications give HelloFresh this great success. Today, HelloFresh has over 2,000 employees worldwide and over 900 Million revenue turnaround in 2017. Although the Retail Index from Loqate is not based on revenue and size of the business, this numbers make clear how well HelloFresh serves customers and how good they understand customer needs – always keeping in mind the business is only 7 years old and already part of the stock market.”

All businesses in the Retail Index are great examples for international expansion and cross border delivery. In times where national eCommerce in Western European countries is nearly covered, international markets are perfect for continuous growth. Customers love variety and are more opened than ever for international retailers. In the European Ecommerce Report 2017 from the Ecommerce Foundation it says that in 2016 only 18% of all companies in Europe sold their goods and services online, whereas over 70% had a website. 33% of all Europeans bought abroad in 2016. And more than 25% of purchases in Europe are cross border purchases, with most cross border purchases in Luxembourg (74%), Russia (62%) and Switzerland (61%).

If you’re interested in speaking to someone from Loqate about how retailers can successfully expand internationally, how retailers can tailor their location services to different markets or how they compete with the top retailers, please contact for more information. The full index is available on

Increase of VAT rate to 20%

The Russian VAT rate is very likely to rise from 18% to 20% starting from 2019. The respective draft law was introduced by the Russian government on June 15, 2018.

There will be no change to the reduced VAT rate of 10% on a number of foodstuffs, goods for children, medicines, books and periodicals, explain the Ecovis experts.

The following compensatory measures are being introduced parallel with the rise of VAT rate:

  • reduction of threshold for accelerated VAT refund to exporters. Currently only companies which have paid not less than 7 bln roubles in taxes for the last three years may enjoy accelerated VAT refund; this figure will be decreased to 2 bln. roubles.
  • reduction of 3-month period for carrying out desk audit for the VAT refund
  • abolition of tax on movable property

Auryn Commences Drilling at Homestake Ridge Gold Project and Provides Update on Drilling Progress at Committee Bay

Auryn Resources Inc. (TSX: AUG, NYSE AMERICAN: AUG, “Auryn” or the “Company” – is pleased to announce that drilling has commenced at its 100% owned Homestake Ridge project located in northwestern British Columbia. The program, which began on August 7th, 2018, consists of approximately 3,000 meters of core drilling to target gold mineralization along the high-grade South Reef deposit.

In the 2017 drill program, Auryn intercepted zones of high-grade gold mineralization at South Reef’s down plunge. These intercepts included 30 meters of 2.00 g/t Au (including 4m @ 6.03g/t Au & 2m @ 11.80 g/t Au) and 10 meters of 4.12 g/t Au (including 2m @ 18.01 g/t Au) (see Auryn’s press release dated December 12, 2017 for full results).

This year’s program aims to expand the known resource at South Reef by targeting the down plunge extension along the bottom of a graben, which defines the mineralized corridor (Figure 1).  The drill program will test 500 meters of strike extension along a one-kilometer gold-in-soils anomaly targeting multiple mineralized structures within the graben (Figure 2).

A Message from Michael Henrichsen, COO & Chief Geologist:

“The high-grade resource at the Homestake Ridge project has an exceptional opportunity for expansion along the South Reef mineralized corridor.  Geological modeling based on the 2017 drill campaign has identified a well-defined graben system that is open to the northwest and will be targeted with 6 – 8 drill holes.”

Committee Bay Update:

  • Auryn has drilled a total of 7200 meters in the 10,000 meter program
  • 3700 meters of diamond drilling to follow-up on the Aiviq discovery along a 1.2 kilometer strike length
  • 3500 meters of RAB drilling on high-resolution gold-in-till targets at Kalulik, Aarluk, Ridge, and Castle
  • Expected completion of the program is August 25th
  • Results anticipated between mid-September and the end of October

A Message from Ivan Bebek, Executive Chairman & Director:

“The fourth quarter of 2018 will be exciting for Auryn shareholders as we are drilling two fully-funded opportunities for significant gold discoveries in Canada. We have also made great progress in Peru over the summer at our Sombrero project, where we recently identified several drill targets.  Updates can be expected in the coming weeks.

With respect to our recently announced funding, we appreciate the support from existing shareholders and welcome new shareholders. We plan to remain judicious with our treasury in these less-than-optimal market conditions.”

Michael Henrichsen, P.Geo, COO of Auryn, is the Qualified Person who assumes responsibility for the technical disclosures in this press release.

Paul Brien supports Kögel dealers in the United Kingdom

Since the beginning of 2017, Trans UK has been distributing new vehicles manufactured by Burtenbach-based trailer manufacturer, Kögel, across the United Kingdom as well as offering rental, leasing, financing and spare parts services. Managing Directors Mike Wilkes and Ian Seagrave have received valuable assistance from the experienced and renowned sales professional, Paul Brien.

Paul Brien has been working in the trailer industry since 1982. He started as an area sales manager in the Dagenham branch of a well-known trailer rental company on the east side of London, and within eight years he helped to transform the company into one of the most successful locations in Europe. In 1990, Brien became managing director of a trailer rental and leasing company. The now 62-year-old spent more than twelve years building a solid profitable multi-location business together with his team. In the next stage of his career, Brien returned to a sales role as National Account Manager for a major UK trailer manufacturer, helping them to become the UK market leader. During the 2008/09 global financial crisis, Brien switched allegiances to another British trailer manufacturer, and at the end of 2013, he decided to take an early retirement.

Fortunately for Kögel, his decision was not final as Brien identified lucrative new prospects together with his friends from Trans UK, Managing Directors Wilkes and Seagrave. He will now use his experience to support and further develop Kögel representation in Britain. Paul Brien’s aim is to “make the Kögel brand more widely known and respected in Great Britain”. Kögel Managing Director Josef Warmeling, who is responsible for sales in western Europe, is delighted: “Trans UK and Kögel are both extremely lucky to have Paul Brien on board. His knowledge and experience in the industry will significantly boost sales of Kögel trailers in Great Britain.”
