Mindset Pharma Inc. announced that it has developed first-in-class studies to enable the company to confirm the psychedelic effect of its novel compounds with greater accuracy. In partnership with InterVivo Solutions, Mindset has trained rats to discriminate psilocybin effects from saline via oral and subcutaneous dosing, which to the company’s knowledge is a first in the psychedelics field of research. By training animals to discriminate psilocybin from saline, Mindset can better determine if they are "experiencing" psilocybin-like effects when administered the company's proprietary compounds. Mindset said it will have an exceptionally strong indicator confirming the effectiveness, safety, and duration of its novel proprietary psychedelic drug candidates, and will be able to support its lead compounds as they progress towards clinical trials.

DGTL Holdings Inc. said its subsidiary Hashoff LLC has pioneered a new product category called social influencer advertising, thanks to which Hashoff 2.0 will be the first CMS of its kind to convert and distribute multimedia social influencer content to programmatic web advertising through DSP distribution, as well as other digital media markets. The New York-based group explained that social influencer advertising is the “conversion of freelance social media influencer content into programmatic web advertisements” pushed to any screen-based digital media format, including omnichannel DSP distribution. This new form of online advertising content is endemic to the now dominant mobile-social media environment and advertising market, said the company. A major inflection point in the global digital media sector was reached when mobile surpassed television in time-spent in 2019, noted the group.
Snowline Gold Corp. said the first two holes ever drilled into the Valley target on its flagship Rogue project in the Yukon, Canada, intersected trace amounts of visible gold across broad regions of drill core. In an update on its activities on its Rogue project, the Yukon Territory focused gold exploration company said Holes V-21-001 and V-21-002, the first two holes ever drilled into Snowline’s “Valley” gold target, both intersected trace amounts of visible gold across much of their 161 meter (m) and 242 m lengths in quartz veins associated with a previously untested reduced-intrusion related gold system. Targeting efforts prior to drilling revealed an open, 900 x 150 m zone of anomalous gold-in-soils associated with a recently identified intrusion accompanied by sheeted quartz veins assaying to 15.95 grammes per ton (g/t) gold.
Mydecine Innovations Group Inc announced that it has partnered with Principal Investigator Dr Matthew Johnson of Johns Hopkins University on a study evaluating the administration of its lead drug candidate MYCO-001, a pure psilocybin from natural fungal sources, with a structured smoking cessation treatment program in nicotine-dependent individuals. Dr Johnson, who has published extensively on the science of psychedelics, has been contracted by Mydecine to complete the phase 2/3 clinical trial of his ongoing research and develop methodologies to better advance future-controlled studies and clinical trials of psychedelics. The Denver, Colorado-based biopharma focused on the treatment of mental health and addiction, said the placebo-controlled study to evaluate its proprietary psychedelic molecule MYCO-001 in treating nicotine dependence is expected to launch in the first quarter of 2022 and will look at primary endpoints of three and six months. The study could be completed by the fourth quarter of 2022.
Gold Resource Corporation issued a positive exploration update from its properties in Mexico and also told investors it was restarting production from its Don David gold mine, where activity was ramped down last month due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. "We are commencing the processes to restart production from the mine, build up a run-of-mine stockpile, restart the processing plant and return to 2021 budgeted throughput rates of 1,500 tonnes per day in the next several weeks," said Alberto Reyes, chief operating officer in a statement. In a separate statement, Gold Resource said exploration drilling in the second and third quarters of 2021 had confirmed "mineralization below current mining levels in the southeastern Switchback zone, particularly the presence of high-grade gold, silver and zinc values". This will allow advance development planning at the mine below the current limits.
LexaGene Holdings, Inc. said it has successfully utilized its MiQLab System to detect the presence of multiple strains of pathogenic bacteria in polymicrobial samples that vary in their antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The company said these samples were missed by traditional Culture and Sensitivity Testing (C&ST), and the time-to-results were orders-of-magnitude faster for the MiQLab. In a statement, Dr Jack Regan, LexaGene’s CEO and founder commented: “C&ST is viewed as the gold standard; however, it can generate false results1,2,3 and can take too long for routine use. In this study, LexaGene demonstrates that PCR testing is far better at reliably detecting a mixed culture, which is critical for improving patient outcomes, particularly if the minor pathogen population is resistant to the prescribed therapy. Not only is the MiQLab better in this regard, but it also provides results in ~2 hours rather than 5 to 11 days as observed in our study for C&ST. These two advantages can be significant enough to persuade many to adopt in-clinic PCR testing for routine use in medical and veterinary care settings.”
Group Eleven Resources Corp reported that a recent 220-metre step-out hole drilled at the Ballywire zinc prospect at the company’s 100%-owned PG West project in Ireland intersected 3.30 metres of 13.6% zinc equivalent within a wider mineralized intercept that exceeded 36 metres. Group Eleven said the hole represents by far the best results to date at Ballywire and suggests immediate exploration potential over several kilometres in all directions, most notably to the north and west.

Couloir Capital Ltd. has initiated research coverage on Talon Metals Corp. in a report entitled 'High Grade Nickel Deposit in the USA to Meet Strong Demand for Battery Production'. Couloir Capital analysts said: "There has been a significant shift in the integration of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors into investment decision-making. These factors are always big concerns for any mining project, and it is getting even bigger due to the increased awareness. The Tamarack Project is ideally positioned to minimize its carbon footprint. Currently, most mining companies only consider their carbon footprint from ore to concentrate; however, going forward, it is expected that future customers, particularly within the EV market, will demand a full life cycle assessment (from mine to finished product) and all attempts to minimize carbon footprint be undertaken from mine to EV. The Tamarack Project is endeavoring to have the lowest carbon footprint of all known Ni projects globally when producing green nickel."
