Lomiko Hires Drilling Company for La Loutre Crystalline Flake Graphite Property for Resource Assessment



VANCOUVER, British Columbia & MONTREAL, July 21, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LOMIKO METALS INC. (TSX-V:LMR) (OTC:LMRMF) (FSE:DH8B) (the "Company") and Canada Strategic Metals (TSX-V:CJC) are pleased to announce that Forage Val D'Or Inc. has been awarded the contract for up to 10,000 metre drilling program at the La Loutre Crystalline Flake Graphite Properties located in Quebec. Over the past month since exploration began, crews have been prospecting, detail mapping and sampling, which will be followed by building roads and drill pads at the site.


"Flake Graphite has unique characteristics that makes it a better conductor of electricity and heat than copper," stated A. Paul Gill. "It will have an expanding role in a new green economy in new batteries, lighting, lubricants, printable electronics and in the nuclear industry."

(Notes: Lithium Ion Batteries now use 10 times as much Graphite as lithium)

The 2014 drilling program at La Loutre was managed by Consul-Teck Exploration of Val-d'Or, Quebec, who designed and will oversee the 2015 drilling campaign. The full set of drill results were reported in the February 9, 2015 news release.

After the current program is complete, the property will be assessed for a resource and if warranted, a pre-economic assessment (PEA). The primary focus is intersections which start within 15 metres of the surface as highlighted below. Viable near surface mineralization reduces the amount of waste rock that needs to be moved, reducing overall cost of the project and reducing environmental impact. The target cost per metric tonne of graphite from Canada to compete with graphite from China is under $800/per metric tonne USD.

The La Loutre Property reported grab samples up to 22.04% Carbon Flake Graphite (CFG) and Carbon Purity Test results reporting up to 100%. Carbon Purity in the Large and Extra Large Flake Graphite categories. Details regarding these tests are available in a September 23, 2014 news release.

IBC Advanced Alloys Delivers First Articles EOTS Components for the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II



July 13, 2015

WILMINGTON, MA and VANCOUVER, - IBC Advanced Alloys Corp. (OTCQX: IAALF and TSX-V: IB;) ("IBC" or the "Company"), a leading advanced alloys and precision castings company, has successfully delivered its first completed Beralcast® azimuth gimbal housing components to Lockheed Martin. The articles will be used in the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II Electro Optical Targeting System (EOTS).

Lockheed Martin's EOTS provides affordable, high-performance multi-function targeting to the F-35's full spectrum of military operations. It is the first sensor to combine forward-looking infrared and infrared search and track functionality to provide F-35 pilots with situational awareness and air-to-air and air-to-surface targeting from a safe distance. The technology enables aircrews to identify areas of interest, perform reconnaissance and precisely deliver laser- and GPS-guided weapons.
Ray White, President of IBC Engineered Materials Corp. said, "Successful first article delivery of Beralcast® components to Lockheed Martin raises the bar for high performance aerospace applications delivered with cost and lead time savings. This is an important milestone for both IBC and the aerospace industry," continued White, "and we look forward to continuing to support Lockheed Martin and aerospace with IBC's Beralcast® cast alloys."


The first contract for Beralcast® azimuth gimbal housing components for OEM aircraft fitted with EOTS systems and spares for low-rate initial production (LRIP) Lots 7 and 8 was announced September 8, 2014. Beralcast® alloys are ideally suited to many aerospace applications where lightweight, high modulus and cost are critical performance factors. The principal Beralcast® alloys are three times stiffer than aluminum with 22% less weight and can be substituted for aluminum, magnesium, titanium, metal matrix composites as well as pure beryllium or powder metallurgy beryllium-aluminum.

About IBC Advanced Alloys Corp.

Sernova Corp. Announces Collaboration with Massachusetts General Hospital to Develop Novel Diabetes Treatment

 by Marketwire
Sernova Corp. (TSX VENTURE: SVA)(FRANKFURT: PSH), is pleased to announce a research collaboration with Massachusetts General Hospital, supported with funding from JDRF to develop a novel treatment for diabetes.

Sernova and Dr. Mark Poznansky, M.D., Ph.D., Associate Professor ofMedicine at Harvard Medical School and Director of the Vaccine and Immunotherapy Center at Massachusetts General Hospital will collaborate on the project, with JDRF providing $150,000 USD in funding support.

The collaboration will incorporate a proprietary local immune protectant technology within Sernova's novel Cell Pouch as a potential new treatment for patients
with insulin-dependent diabetes.

"Sernova is pleased to be working with Dr. Poznansky, a world renowned expert in understanding and modulating molecular processes of the immune system for therapeutic uses, whose laboratory discovered the novel protectant technology and we are similarly pleased to be working with JDRF and to receive shared support for this work," said Dr. Philip Toleikis, President and CEO of Sernova Corp.
Islet transplantation represents a potentially durable cure for type 1 diabetes (T1D) by replacing the lost beta islet cells with new, functional insulin producing cells. Application of islet transplantation as a treatment for T1D is currently limited by a number of significant obstacles: a very limited availability of transplantable islets derived from human cadaveric donors, the immune destruction of the islets following transplantation and the need for an implantable, scalable and retrievable device for delivering therapeutic cells.

Sernova's patented Cell Pouch uses biocompatible polymers to develop, highly vascularized subcutaneous tissue chambers for the placement, survival and long term function of islets and other therapeutic cells. Over the past six years, Sernova's Cell Pouch has demonstrated an excellent safety profile and efficacy benefit in small and large animal models of disease and importantly, in humans with severe diabetes, islets transplanted into the Cell Pouch have been shown to become highly vascularized and able to produce their therapeutic product.

"Sernova's goal for the treatment of diabetes is to develop a product consisting of our prevascularized, human scaled Cell Pouch which creates an ideal environment for locally immune-protected therapeutic cells from a virtually unlimited source to treat all patients with insulin-dependent diabetes," added Dr. Toleikis.

"Our collaboration with Sernova is designed to address the obstacles of current portal vein islet transplantation by combining a proprietary local immune protectant for transplanted cells from a virtually unlimited source, within a biocompatible device that enhances microvessel formation and thereby oxygen supply to the graft," said Dr. Poznansky. He continued, "This combination is designed to unlock the potential of advanced therapeutic cell treatment that could meet the needs of the growing population of patients with diabetes."

"We see Sernova's approach to treating diabetes with its prevascularized implantable Cell Pouch(TM)
using virtually unlimited cell sources that are locally protected from the immune system as being directly aligned with the research emphasis of JDRF and look forward to the results from the collaboration with Dr. Poznansky," said Dr. Albert Hwa, JDRF's Director of Discovery Research.

In 2015 Domain Name Sales are still a lucrative business 20 years later

Are you one of the naysayers that insist that internet domain names are so "yesteryear" in value?

Then maybe you should think again about this dynamic market and the businesses that buy and sell lucrative web domains.   Domain Names registered in the early years (late 90's) especially those of the dom com (.com) domain variety, are still commanding multi-million dollar prices as evidenced here with the Domain Name Journal's 2015 "year to date" list of domain sales and prices.

While it is true that many lesser domains (most unrecognizable in phraseology) are worthless, or sell for $50-100 dollars, you should keep in mind it only costs $10 at most registrars to register a new name, and your imagination is the only limit as to what names you register.


Names listed here were sold by brokers like Afternic, Sedo, Godaddy, DomainNameSales and others who act as independant third parties providing a service to buyers ad sellers in this lucrative trade.

Remember, this list is only for the first 6 months of 2015.  There will, no doubt, be many other eye popping sales of domain names in the latter half of 2015.
