Angle PLC (LON:AGL) 71.50p £122m
ANGLE, a world-leading liquid biopsy company, announced that one of its leading customers, the Disseminated Cancer Cell Network (DCCNet), Duesseldorf, an interdisciplinary team of cancer researchers and clinicians, has published new results in a peer-reviewed journal of work done to develop a "robust, reliable and cost-efficient workflow" for enrichment of single circulating tumor cells (CTCs).
This has been published by the DCCNet at the University Hospital and Medical Faculty of the Heinrich-Heine University of Duesseldorf as a peer-reviewed publication in the journal Cancers and is available at https:// angleplc.com/library/ publications/.
The researchers combined use of the Parsortix® system with the micromanipulator CellCelector™ to enable single CTCs to be analysed individually to investigate the heterogeneity of the cancer. They were able to complete PCR-based gene expression analysis of single CTCs processed by Parsortix direct from the patient sample as well as from cells obtained from Parsortix and subsequently cultured outside the patient. This approach may facilitate complex therapeutic decision-making based on the CTC analysis.
The work was undertaken in breast cancer and was able to detect varying gene expression between the individual CTCs as well as demonstrating that changes in the patient's HER-2 expression can be detected.
21st Century Technology, the specialist provider of integrated systems and software to the passenger transport markets, announced it has secured contract awards with West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA), valued at approximately £0.8m.
The awards include works to enhance existing passenger information displays throughout Birmingham City centre, valued at £0.3m within the current year, and the installation of new passenger information displays and public Wi-Fi for the first of the new Sprint Bus Rapid Transit(BRT) corridors valued at £0.5m commencing in 2020.
In the current financial year, 21st Century will deliver upgraded technology to Birmingham City Centre passenger information totems, replacing orange-LED displays with new, multi-colour LEDs; believed to be the first of their kind deployed in the UK transport market.
The award also includes the provision of 21st Century's integrated technology to the first tranche of the new contemporary design bus shelters, being deployed throughout the West Midlands, specifically for the Sprint BRT corridors; enhancing transport infrastructure in the region. As part of the works, which are due to commence in H1 2020, 21st Century will be installing advanced displays and communications technologies. The framework allows WMCA to select from a number of additional options for application in the shelters, which would see the value increase.
Galantas Gold reported progress at the Omagh gold mine. An access drive on the fourth (1060) level has intersected the Kearney vein ahead of schedule. The intersection shows strongly developed mineralization. The north and south faces of the vein were channel sampled. The average of the two channels was 8.35 g/t gold over an average true width of 2.65 metres.
The vein intersection is expected to allow in-vein development both north and south on the fourth (1060) level. Development on the fourth level is anticipated to produce increased feed tonnage to the processing plant, which produces a concentrate sold under an off-take contract.
Development on the third (1072) level continues southwards with gold grades within the expected range.
A drivage from the 1072 access has been taken northwards, in-vein, for approximately 40 metres (July 19, 2019). Mineralisation beyond the first 20 metres is currently excluded from the geological model, due to paucity of data. The mineralization was shown to be persistent and has been followed in an in-vein development.
Two channel samples taken across the face as the drivage was developed at 24.1m and 27.6m into the third level (1072) north development showed a grade of 6.2g/t gold and 16.3 g/t gold respectively, each with a true width of 3 metres.
Pembridge Resources announced that its subsidiary Minto Explorations Limited has signed an agreement with Sumitomo Canada Limited", a subsidiary of Sumitomo Corporation to receive a working capital facility in connection with an off-take agreement for 55,000 tonnes of copper concentrate, to be produced by the Minto mine. The Advanced Payment and the Off-Take are part of a broader strategic relationship between Sumitomo and Pembridge, In addition the parties are working together towards finalising a pre-payment facility agreement.
The Off-Take is for 100% of the copper concentrate produced at the Minto mine delivered on a cost, insurance and freight (CIF) basis to a nominated Japanese port and shall remain in place until (i) 55,000 tonnes of copper concentrate delivered, or (ii) 31 Dec 2020, whichever is later.
The Advanced Payment shall be made by Sumitomo to Minto on a monthly basis, for 90% of the estimated value of concentrate produced that month with final payment due on delivery to Japan.
The Advanced Payment allows Minto to immediately monetise each month's production, eliminating the historically large working capital requirements when the site is unable to transport concentrate owing to seasonal weather disruptions.
The Advance Payment is subject to interest payable of $3 month LIBOR plus 1.5% until Sumitomo has taken delivery of the concentrate in Japan.
