White Metal Options Little Joanna Gold Property, Northeast of Sokoman Iron, Central Newfoundland

Thunder Bay, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – October 23, 2018) – White Metal Resources Corp. (TSXV: WHM) (“White Metal” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company has entered into an option agreement (the “Option”) for a 100% interest in the Little Joanna Gold Property (the “Property”), Central Newfoundland. The Property is approximately 25 km northeast of the town of Glenwood, is accessible by resource roads that originate from either Glenwood or Birchy Bay, and comprises 280 claim units, covering 7,000 hectares. The Property is approximately 45 km northeast of the Moosehead Gold Project of Sokoman Iron Corp. (“Sokoman Iron”). Sokoman Iron recently announced their gold-bearing discovery hole (Sokoman Iron Corp. news release, dated July 24, 2018), reporting an assay result of 44.96 g/t Au over 11.90 metres (from 109.00 to 120.90 metres).

The Little Joanna property is a new high-grade gold discovery in an area with little known exploration. The main Little Joanna showing is a 25 to 31 cm wide compact quartz vein within a highly altered, carbonated sedimentary mélange of shale, conglomerate and siltstone. Hand trenching by the vendors exposed the vein for a couple of metres. Fine, visible gold is observed throughout the vein and selected grabs samples by the Vendor assayed up to 734 grams per tonne (g/t) gold (Au) (23 oz/ton Au); average sampling of the quartz vein is approximately 189 g/t Au (5.9 oz/t Au.). As much of the Property is covered by overburden, the Company believes that significant potential exists for the discovery of additional gold-bearing quartz veins.

In conjunction with the original Option of 27 claim units, White Metal subsequently staked an additional 253 claim units extending the Property to the northeast and southwest and covering historical work done by Noranda Exploration (1988-1989). Noranda reported up to 44g/t Au in boulder samples and outlined 1.15 g/t Au and 5.2 g/t Au basil till sample anomalies.

The Property is largely underlain by Early to Late Silurian siliciclastic sediments and lesser subaerial mafic and felsic volcanic rocks including the Silurian Botwood Group (Wigwam and Lawrenceton formations), similar to the geology and northeast-trending structures found on Sokoman Iron’s Moosehead gold project to the southwest.

To exercise the Option the Company is required to complete a series of cash payments totaling $170,000 and share issuances totalling 1,800,000 shares to the optionor of the Property (the “Optionor”) as follows: a) $15,000 and 300,000 shares upon receipt of regulatory approval; b) $25,000 and 300,000 shares on or before the first anniversary; c) $30,000 and 300,000 shares on or before the second anniversary; c) $40,000 and 400,000 shares on or before the third anniversary; and d) $60,000 and 500,000 shares on or before the fourth anniversary. The Optionor will retain a 2% Net Smelter Return Royalty (“NSR”) of which White Metal will have the right to purchase 1% for $1,000,000.00 and have the first right of refusal on the remaining 1%. The Option is subject to an advanced royalty payment of $7,000 per year, payable in cash or shares, after year 5 of the Option.

This Option Agreement is pending TSX approval.

Technical information in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Dr. Scott Jobin-Bevans (P.Geo.), Vice President Exploration and a Director of White Metal, who is a Qualified Person under the definitions established by the National Instrument 43-101.

Japan Gold Announces Strategic Alliance to Explore Four Prospective Lithocap Projects

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – October 23, 2018) – Japan Gold Corp. (TSXV: JG) (OTCQB: JGLDF) (“Japan Gold” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a binding letter agreement (“Letter Agreement“) with First Quantum Minerals Ltd. (TSX: FM) (“FQML“) to explore four of its prospective lithocap projects (collectively, the “Lithocap Projects” and each a “Project“) located on the islands of Hokkaido, Honshu and Kyushu, Japan. The Lithocap Projects represent exploration targets for shallow-level epithermal gold and deeper porphyry copper-gold deposits. Pursuant to the terms of the Letter Agreement, FQML has committed to manage and oversee a systematic surface exploration reconnaissance program on each Project prior to June 30, 2019.

John Proust, Chairman and CEO of Japan Gold, commented: “We are delighted to partner with a company with First Quantum’s international reputation, exploration, development and production expertise and financial capability to advance four of our highly prospective gold and copper-gold exploration targets in Japan. We believe this to be a first of many validating events for our pioneering efforts to re-establish Japan as a major mining jurisdiction. Separately, Japan Gold’s portfolio includes an additional twelve epithermal gold projects focused on the islands of Hokkaido and Kyushu, all of which sit within historic mining districts. Taken together, we believe that the Company is in an excellent strategic position in Japan, and we heartily welcome First Quantum as a partner.”

The Projects included in the Letter Agreement are the Eboshi, Kobui, Minamikayabe and Kamitsue projects, which collectively cover a land area of 11,830 hectares (“ha”), refer to Figure 1 which shows Japan Golds lithocap projects on the islands of Hokkaido, Honshu and Kyushu.

FQML will immediately commence work on initial exploration programs at each of the Projects, which will consist of reconnaissance field work, mapping, soil and rock sampling, and targeted geophysics. FQML personnel will be working directly alongside Japan Gold, who will remain as operator during this initial program at each of the Projects.

Option Summary

Upon completion of the initial exploration program, as defined by a specific scope of work on each of the four Projects, FQML will have the option to enter into a formal earn-in agreement (“Option Agreement“) on any Project individually, pursuant to which FQML may earn-in to 51% of a Project by completing a minimum of US$5 million in total exploration expenditures prior to June 30, 2022. For any project that FQML options it will endeavour to maintain minimum average annual expenditures of US$1 million per year during the initial earn-in period.

Upon earning a 51% interest in a Project, FQML would have the right to earn an additional 29% interest in a Project by solely funding the Project until FQML makes a “Decision to Mine”, increasing FQML’s ownership in a Project to 80%.

Lithocap Project Summaries

The Eboshi project comprises nine contiguous prospecting rights totaling 3,080 ha, located near the coastal town of Noheji in northern Honshu, Japan. The project area contains a large, exposed advanced-argillic lithocap, one of several identified along the Northeast Japan Arc by government funded regional metallogenic surveys conducted in the 1980’s and 1990’s.

The Kobui project comprises eight contiguous prospecting rights applications totaling 2,738 ha, located in the Kameda Peninsula of southwestern Hokkaido. The project area contains two large advanced-argillic lithocaps separated by a younger andesitic volcanic dome.

The Minamikayabe project comprises six contiguous prospecting rights applications totaling 1,943 ha also on the Kameda Peninsula of southwestern Hokkaido. Targets include high level epithermal gold systems, and deeper potential porphyry targets associated with two broad advanced-argillic lithocaps.

The Kamitsue project comprises twelve contiguous prospecting rights applications totaling 4,069 ha, located near the town of Kikuchi in northern Kyushu. A large area of advanced argillic alteration was identified by the Company in 2018 during reconnaissance programs around historically prospected gold bearing quartz veins.

Global UAV, Major Telecom and VineView Perform 4G Supported Agriculture Survey at Jost Vineyards

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – October 23, 2018) – Global UAV Technologies Ltd. (CSE: UAV) (OTC: YRLLF) (FSE: YAB2) (the “Company” or “Global UAV”), a diversified and vertically integrated drone technology company, recently completed a 4G drone technology proof of concept mission with Jöst Vineyards, VineView – Scientific Aerial Imaging, Inc., (“VineView”) and a major Canadian Telecommunications partner.

Global UAV provided the 4G enabled Procyon 800E helicopter drone platform and specialized imaging payload, pilots and engineering support for the project.

The mission demonstrated a real word application of cutting-edge drone technology for the “Digital Vineyard of the Future” project. The mission provided valuable quantitative scientific data to the vineyard. Global UAV flew a 4G enabled multi-spectral imaging survey over Jöst Vineyards in Nova Scotia with a Procyon 800E helicopter, the company’s proprietary drone that is designed, engineered and manufactured by Global UAV’s subsidiary, NOVAerial Robotics Inc. A key factor and technical aspect of the mission was to demonstrate drone-enabled real-time data transfer capabilities over the 4G cellular network.

The project partners included one of Canada’s largest telecommunications companies. Global UAV worked with VineView and the telecommunications partner to integrate the 4G technology onto the Procyon 800E UAV platform, fly the survey and transfer the data over the 4G network in real-time during flight. VineView post-processed and interpreted the multi-spectral imagery and produced diagnostic maps used by Jöst Vineyards for crop uniformity optimization, irrigation management, harvest planning, and plant health information.

By completing this project Global UAV has established an additional business opportunity vertical it can access by providing “high value crop” surveys which can be managed within the existing business units of Global UAV.

The survey was flown over the Jöst Vineyards in Malagash, Nova Scotia, part of the Devonian Coast Wineries group. Jöst Vineyards will use the optimized data to determine plant health and harvest information as a part of the “Digital Vineyard of the Future” project on which all the above companies and partners are collaborating.

“This is a pivotal opportunity for Global UAV and emphasizes the broad exposure to major telecom partners that our innovation and 4G technology development efforts have landed. In addition, we are excited to reveal the new technology our Company brings to the viticulture and agriculture industry. Collaboration with VineView, Jöst Vineyards and the major telecom partner confirms Global UAV’s emergence as an industry leading drone technology company with wide technology applications across many industry verticals. The application of this technology demonstrates Global UAV’s ability to deploy “real world” solutions that can extend and accelerate our business opportunities,” commented Michael Burns, CEO, Global UAV Technologies Ltd.

“Fine wine making is in the growing of grapes with specific qualities, where many variables have to be taken into consideration. We see these emerging technologies offering excellent opportunities for integrated measurement and management of our vineyards and focus on Precision Viticulture,” stated Jonathan Rodwell, Director of Viticulture and Winemaking, Jöst Vineyards.

Village Farms Exclusive Onsite Video and Interview — CFN Media

Seattle, Washington–(Newsfile Corp. – October 23, 2018) – FN Media Group (“CFN Media”), the leading agency and financial media network dedicated to the North American cannabis industry, announces publication of an article and exclusive executive video interview discussing how Village Farms International Inc. (TSXV: VFF) (OTCQX: VFFIF) is leveraging its 30 years of experience as a vertically integrated greenhouse grower for the rapidly emerging global cannabis opportunity. The company is initially focused in Canada through its 50% ownership of British Columbia-based joint venture Pure Sunfarms Corp., which is rapidly expanding cannabis production and on track to be one of the single largest cannabis growing operations in the world. Expansion into cannabis production is expected to significantly transform the earnings power of Village Farms.



If the video does not appear, please follow the link to watch on YouTube:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GEYqZY02x3k

Pure Sunfarms has completed conversion of and is growing cannabis in the first half of its 1.1 million square foot state-of-the-art greenhouse in Delta, British Columbia for supply to the legal adult-use market in Canada. Conversion of the remaining 550,000 square feet continues to progress on plan and remains on schedule for completion before the end of this year. In addition, Pure Sunfarms has the potential to expand production in Canada to 4.8 million square feet through options on two additional greenhouses currently owned by Village Farms that are immediately adjacent to the 1.1 million square foot facility.

The technologically-advanced Pure Sunfarms greenhouse design is based on decades of large-scale, low-cost agricultural production experience and extensive cannabis expertise, resulting in a state-of-the-art facility with 17 grow rooms optimized for year-round harvesting (more than 85 harvests annually) and an automated processing line encompassing harvesting, trimming, drying and packaging.

Village Farms reports that Pure Sunfarms’ production ramp up is exceeding expectations. There are currently multiple strains in production, and the company is selling product to other Licensed Producers for the newly-christened legal adult-use market, as it advances toward potential distribution agreements with provincial government buyers. Importantly, Pure Sunfarms is well on its way to attaining its stated goal of achieving a production cost below $1/gram and becoming the low-cost producer in Canada.

Beyond Canada, independent of the Pure Sunfarms joint venture, Village Farms owns and operates 5.7 million square feet of greenhouse facilities (including one of the most technologically advanced greenhouses in the world) in West Texas, one of the best growing environments in North America. With unmatched operational capabilities in large-scale, low-cost growing, Village Farms is uniquely positioned for potential future opportunities in industrial hemp and/or cannabis, should those products be legalized under the relevant jurisdictions. Village Farms’ CEO, Michael DeGiglio, believes the additional learnings gained through the conversion and production ramp at the Pure Sunfarms facility in Canada will be of tremendous value as the company pursues U.S. and other international opportunities.
