Aben Resources (TSX-V:ABN) whacked it out of the park on Thursday with the release of assays from the first hole of the summer drill program at Forrest Kerr, its property in the highly prospective Golden Triangle area play of northwestern British Columbia. The assays are spectacular, with multiple high-grade zones showing, including 62.4 g/t gold over 6.0m within 38.7 g/t over 10.0m. The highest-grade chunk of core, jewelry box style gold mineralization, assayed an eye-popping 331.0 grams per tonne.

Hi

Why do poor people vote Republican? It’s a good question, especially after a year and a half of Donald Trump serving as the US President. How has Trump performed so far and in particular, has the base that elected him benefited from his policies?

Why do poor people vote Republican? Guns and God -  Part 1

The human race possesses the knowledge and the ability to ensure that every child born on the planet could look forward to a healthy and well-fed body, an educated mind, and the opportunity to become the best that he or she is capable of. But when the demand is translated into energy needs – providing a globally stabilized population of, say, ten billion with energy per person probably greater than that of the U.S. today – the amount is utterly beyond any approaches that are merely variations of what we have. Only continued evolution into the next logical realm of energy control can do it. So, can we make nuclear energy work, safely, cleanly, and efficiently? Sure we can. When we take a long, hard look at the alternatives, we see that we have to.

Nuclear Power, It's No Contest

To be a uranium bull lately is to take the classic contrarian investor position, buying into the uranium market now really means being ahead of the herd. But why invest in uranium now, when the sector is still down after being kicked so hard in the years following Fukushima? Well, the market is poised for a turnaround, a new uranium bull market is getting underway. A few points are key:

  • Global demand for nuclear energy is strong and not going away despite the unfortunate accident at Fukushima. The leaders in building new nuclear reactors are China, India and Russia.
  • Uranium demand is set to outstrip supply. Current demand is 190 million pounds but mine supply is now only 135 million pounds; the estimated supply gap is 100 million pounds by 2030.
  • Utilities are going to need to buy more uranium. Over 65% of current contracts are due to expire by 2025.
  • Almost no one is making any money at $20 uranium. This is why some of the biggest and lowest cost uranium mines, like Cameco’s McArthur River/ Key Lake, Rabbit Lake and Paladin Energy’s Langer Heinrich Mine in Namibia, have shut down. Low prices forced the biggest uranium supplier, Kazakhstan, to slash production by over 20%. The price needed to bring new mines online is estimated at $60 a pound.

If you’re a junior exploring for uranium, it helps to be in the Athabasca Basin. Not only does the Basin host the highest-grade uranium in the world, it is also in Saskatchewan, considered one of the best mining jurisdictions globally. The region is known for enriching shareholders fortunate enough to ride the wave. Successful projects have included NexGen’s Rook (Arrow deposit), Hathor’s Roughrider, Denison’s Wheeler, Enexco’s Mann Lake, and Fission Uranium’s Patterson Lake South.

Here at aheadoftheherd.com we believe there is no reason why Skyharbour can’t emulate these successes.

Discovery Driven Skyharbour Resources has a dual strategy for making it big in the Basin

SURG closes private placement, hits new zone

More funds are flowing into Surge Copper’s (TSX-V:SURG) treasury at the same time the company intersected a new mineralized zone at its Ootsa copper project. A 3,000m drill program is underway, with just the second hole intersecting a new zone of mineralization 500m northeast of the East Seel deposit.  And Newmont Mining just acquired a 50% interest in the Galore Creek Partnership.

The road to war: Buying fear - Part 3

As we explained in the first two articles of this series, the current trade dispute between the United States and China could be the first sign of a larger confrontation between the first and second-largest economies, that might even lead to a shooting war if international events were to run a certain course. This could include a naval battle in the South China Sea or a war over Taiwan should China insist on taking the island back.

Lithium deals gathering pace

The lithium space both in South and North America is heating up, in line with the increasing demand for electrical vehicles, government mandates to phase out fossil fuels, and auto manufacturers rolling out new EV models every year. From an investment point of view, it’s important to look at companies that are early-stage enough to warrant a significant shareholder return - ones that have not yet advanced to the point where offtake agreements and major financings have already been completed.

Wanna buy a copper mine? Ask a junior

Copper is one of the most abundant metals among the world’s mined commodities, but getting your hands on a new copper mine is getting tougher and tougher. Despite the major miners wanting to add new supply to their pipelines, nobody wants to sell, and that is putting a renewed focus on high-quality development projects.

Aben finds early success at Forrest Kerr

The drill program at Aben Resources’ (TSX.V:ABN) Forrest Kerr property is looking promising. After only two weeks of drilling, the Vancouver-based company put out a news release on Monday saying that the drills have already intersected mineralization on the first five holes at the North Boundary Zone. It’s encouraging that Aben, with only five holes drilled, is discovering more sub-faults, or splays, of varying widths, coming off of the main Kerr fault - a 40-km-long trend that transects Forrest Kerr. These splays act as conduits and are known to host mineralization, sometimes with bonanza grades.

The goal of this year’s 5,000m diamond drill program is to expand the mineralization at the Boundary North Zone. According to Aben, this part of the Forrest Kerr property hosts gold-silver-copper in rock and soil anomalies that span over 2 km by 4 km and remain relatively under-explored. The zone’s mineralization remains open in multiple directions with numerous soil geochemical anomalies and geophysical targets currently being drill-tested.

Exploration program begins for Surge Copper (TSX.V:SURG)

The company’s Ootsa property is an advanced stage copper-gold exploration project containing the East Seel, West Seel and Ox porphyry deposits. It is located adjacent to the Huckleberry open-pit copper mine previously operated by Imperial Metals. Surge Copper completed a PEA in 2016 showing the potential for a 12-year mine that would produce 324 million pounds of copper, 185,000 ounces of gold, 15.8 million pounds molybdenum and 3 million ounces of silver. A resource estimate done the same year shows 1.1 billion pounds of copper and over a million ounces of gold, in the measured and indicated categories.

The road to war: China’s kryptonite - Part 2

President Donald Trump’s predecessors saw the rise of China as a good thing. Allowing the country to join the WTO was seen as normalizing trade relations with Beijing and “letting it into the club.” But China has greater ambitions than status-quo trade. It wants to become the most powerful nation on Earth, and has proven it is willing to bend or break the rules to do so. Trump is the first President to recognize that China is a threat, not a partner, and needs to be dealt with accordingly. Trump is not interested in accommodation, and sees confrontation with the world’s second largest economy as the way to best counter the threat.

Hi

In 2016 Steve Bannon, President Donald Trump’s former chief strategist, declared that there was no doubt, in his mind, that the US would go to war with China in the South China Sea in the next five to 10 years. A year and a half later the United States is not at war with China, but the current economic and South China Sea saber-rattling is arguably the beginning of a confrontation between the world’s largest and second-largest economies.

We have covered the whole range of global warming causes and effects - from the threat to the North Atlantic Current, polar vortices, melting ice and rising seas, to the mass extinction of land and ocean species, and the rapid reduction of the world’s freshwater supply. In this wrap-up article, we pull all the elements of climate change together. In doing so, the overall picture you are about to see is sobering, alarming, and it is not a stretch to say, apocalyptic. Despite the promises of politicians and certain business leaders who claim to have the answers to stop climate change, the truth is it is unstoppable.

Hi

Imagine a day when the water supply to your city is turned off. Water piped into your house or apartment for drinking, toilets, bathing, dishwashing, laundry, and watering your plants suddenly goes from a gush to a trickle, and then, nothing. The water supply has run dry, and there’s chaos. There’s a run on bottled water and within two days it’s gone from grocery and big box stores.

Is this a scene from an apocalyptic movie? For now the scenario is fictional, but it’s reality is coming closer and closer for many.

Lithium Chile signs $3M earn-in deal with Prosper One

Lithium Chile (TSX-V:LITH, OTC-QB:LTMCF) has done a deal with Prosper One International Holdings Company Limited regarding its Pintadas Norte project in Chile.

Under the memorandum of understanding announced on Wednesday, spending $3 million in exploration at Pintadas Norte, by the end of 2021, will earn Prosper One a 55% stake in the project. The MOU also specifies a $1 million equity investment at $1.00 per share - to be composed of one Lithium Chile share and half a warrant. A whole warrant is exercisable into one LITH share at $1.50 for two years after the date the equity investment is completed.  

The staged exploration at Pintadas Norte will be conducted by Lithium Chile, and as the operator, will receive a management fee equal to 17.5% of the exploration funds spent.

“We are pleased to have reached this agreement with Prosper One which accelerates our ability to unlock the potential of our dominant land package in Chile,” said Steve Cochrane, President and CEO of Lithium Chile. “Essentially, we are combining our technical expertise and Chilean experience with Prosper One's financial acumen and support to explore our highly prospective Pintadas Norte project in the coastal region of Chile. We look forward to a mutually rewarding working relationship.”

Lithium Chile has excellent potential for partnerships and offtake agreements from its sprawling collection of properties in Chile that it managed to pick up at rock-bottom prices. The lithium junior holds 152,900 hectares across 14 salars and one “laguna” (lagoon in Spanish), surrounding the world’s most important lithium reserves in the Salar de Atacama.

Share buybacks surging

We called it. The Republican tax cuts back in December have not put money back into the pockets of shareholders but rather have enriched management, who are using the tax cuts to buy back company shares and boost their own compensation.

According to the SEC, corporate executives have been selling their shares after buyback announcements, and profiting from the stock price surge that usually happens after a repurchase notice, CNBC reported earlier this week.

There were $178 billion worth of buybacks in the first quarter, a record $171.3 billion in May, and so far in June, $51.5 billion has been announced according to Trim Tabs, a market data firm. Insider selling has reached $23.6 billion in the same time frame. Full-year buybacks could total $800 billion, say Wall Street analysts, versus $530 billion last year.

Share buybacks are a popular tool for management to stuff cash back into the company, indirectly, by reducing the share float. Purchasing company stock generally inflates the share price and boosts earnings per share – a key metric on which CEO bonuses are calculated.

The EV battery arms race is on

The increasing trend, almost all the major moves being made to lock up lithium supplies is not in North America; it’s in the South American salars (evaporated salt lakes), where three-quarters of the world’s lithium is produced. And with 50% of the world’s lithium resources in Chile, as well as the country being the lowest cost producer, Chile, if you’re a junior resource company in the lithium space, is the place to own lithium projects. Lithium Chile (TSX-V:LITH, OTC-QB:LTMCF) is one such company with excellent potential for partnerships and offtake agreements from its +150,000 hectares of properties in Chile.

A new lithium company - lithium brine in Chile. As most know AOTH was first in featuring lithium brine projects in the Lithium Triangle of SA back in 2009. And we did well, Salares Lithium TSX.V:LIT was brought to your attention at .39 and 9 months later was bought out by Talison for $1.29. Rodinia Minerals TSX.V:RM was featured at .04 and ran to 0.84. All of today’s major players were talked about in those early articles as well. Lithium X TSX.V:LIX was featured in early 2016 when still private. IPOed @ .15 and those who were paying attention did very well.

LITH is like going back to our lithium South American roots. And the company does have an impressive management team and land package. How they got that land package is genius.

"While most lithium explorers were buying up ground in Argentina, Lithium Chile turned to geologist Terry Walker. Their man in Chile had 26 years of experience in the country, not to mention a Chilean wife and children. Walker also had access to something that would prove extremely valuable: a database of the salars first done in the 1960s and updated in the 90s. The survey for the Chilean government contained information on salar chemistries and grades, and Walker used it to identify the best properties for staking. Unbelievably, Walker was able to pick up highly prospective land blocks for not much more than $3 a hectare."

I'm intrigued. As soon as they receive land use permits the drills will turn, 4 projects with multiple drill targets each, and with 51% insider ownership and $8.8m in the till. Not bad. Make sure to watch the video.

Lithium Chile, a perfect storm

This includes freak winter storms that appear to contradict the “warming” thesis, scorching summer droughts, water shortages, rising sea levels, retreating glaciers, melting permafrost, skinny polar bears, dying coral reefs and the extinction of species.

While there is disagreement over its causes – man-made versus natural – the reality of climate change is an incontrovertible fact. The planet is warming, affecting our weather, our oceans, our growing seasons, even our food, as crops fail, causing shortages and price hikes. Storms are becoming more frequent, and more intense, and droughts are lasting longer.

Ahead of the Herd is putting together a series of articles on climate change. We plan to cover the whole range of global warming causes and effects. Each article will endeavor to explain a facet of climate science that is not only extremely interesting, but also has investment implications.

Our changing climate - Part 1

Hi

Big news for Sernova investors this morning. Last week we learned the University of Chicago was the place for the trials and who our lead investigator was to be. This morning we learned, something most had already guessed, we have IRB approval. Let the trials begin!

I’ve attached the following link for a refresher on SVA’s technology.

Sernova Corp about to start FDA cell pouch diabetes trials

Rick

SERNOVA ANNOUNCES UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO INSTITUTIONAL REVIEW BOARD (IRB) APPROVAL OF THE FDA-CLEARED THERAPEUTIC CELL POUCH CLINICAL STUDY

Sernova Corp. has received University of Chicago institutional review board (IRB) approval to begin a new clinical protocol for the Food and Drug Administration-cleared human clinical trial to investigate the Cell Pouch for treatment of Type 1 diabetes (T1D) in individuals with hypoglycemia unawareness.

The University of Chicago Institutional Review Board (IRB) is a committee established to review and approve research involving human subjects. The purpose of the IRB is to ensure that all human subject research is conducted in accordance with all federal, institutional, and ethical guidelines. The primary goal of an IRB is to safeguard the rights, safety and welfare of participants in research studies.

"The approval of our clinical protocol by the University of Chicago IRB represents a significant milestone enabling the company to expand the clinical testing of our Cell Pouch System to the US. Patient selection and enrollment can now proceed," said Dr. Philip Toleikis, Sernova President and CEO.

The approved protocol is a Phase I/II non-randomized, unblinded, single arm, company-sponsored trial, where diabetic subjects with hypoglycemia unawareness will be enrolled into the study under informed consent. Subjects will then be implanted with Cell Pouches. Following development of vascularized tissue chambers within the Cell Pouch, subjects will then be stabilized on immunosuppression and a dose of purified islets under strict release criteria will be transplanted into the Cell Pouch.

A sentinel pouch, also transplanted with islets, will be removed for an early assessment of the islet transplant. Subjects will be followed for safety and efficacy measures for approximately six months. At this point, a decision will be made with regards to the transplant of a second islet dose with subsequent safety and efficacy follow up. Patients will then be further followed for one year. The primary objective of the study is to demonstrate safety and tolerability of islet transplantation into the Cell Pouch{A ™}. The secondary objective is to assess efficacy through a series of defined measures.

About Sernova's Cell Pouch{A ™} Technologies

The Cell Pouch{A ™} is a novel, proprietary, scalable, implantable macroencapsulation device designed to prevent device fibrosis for the long-term survival and function of therapeutic cells (donor, stem cell-derived cells and xenogeneic cells) which then release proteins and/or hormones as required to treat disease. The device is designed upon implantation to incorporate with tissue, forming highly vascularized tissue chambers for the transplantation and function of therapeutic cells. The device with therapeutic cells has been shown to provide long-term safety and efficacy in small and large animal models of diabetes and has been proven to provide a biologically compatible environment for insulin-producing cells in humans

Gold gaining as war drums beat louder

The headlines this week have been full of escalations of continuing and new conflicts around the world. This is an especially timely article with a coalition of countries, the U.S., U.K. and France, attacking Syria with 105 missiles last night.

How a trade war could break US critical minerals supply chain

If trade between China, Russia and the US suddenly stopped, could the US survive an embargo on the 23 minerals it deems critical to the countries very survival? I'm keeping my eye on juniors and near-term producers, in Canada and the US, who could help the US keep its supplies of strategic minerals open.

Sernova Corp about to start FDA cell pouch diabetes trials

Harnessing the power of therapeutic cells to repair or replace cells, tissues or organs that are damaged by trauma or disease means we are entering an era where treatments for some of the world's most devastating diseases are developed.

Lab manufactured therapeutic cells hosted in the human body, in Sernova Corp’s prevascularized Cell Pouch System™ monitoring, regulating, manufacturing and secreting the necessary hormones, factors and proteins to control diabetes and hemophilia would be a major accomplishment, and a truly disruptive innovation.

Gold Holding Its Own

The past few weeks have seen global equities falling amid a broad selloff in tech stocks, Russia in global crosshairs and the ramping up of trade war tensions, but gold, the traditional safe haven metal has barely budged. Why isn't gold rising more than it has? On the other hand, with all the good economic indicators that normally cause the precious metal to fall, gold has held its own. What the heck is going on with gold?

Cypress and a significant Nevada lithium moment

Cypress Development Corp (TSX.V:CYP) is currently waiting on its maiden 43-101 compliant resource report expected near the end of April. All eyes are on that maiden resource because it is expected to be BIG. As lithium juniors go, the package of land that Cypress has identified is one of the best lithium projects, if not the best, going in the market right now. The sheer size, and grade, of the anticipated resource means that a lot of attention will be focused on the company.

DMG closes crypto-analytics and AI deal

DMG Blockchain Solutions (TSXV:DMGI) has closed a major transaction that was announced on the same day the bitcoin miner and blockchain services company started trading on the Toronto Venture exchange in early February: a cash and share deal to acquire BlockSeer, an analytics and forensics company that allows users to “follow the bitcoins” as they move through the blockchain.

The potent combination is expected to give DMG a strong competitive advantage, by providing leading-edge cryptocurrency forensics and real-time risk scoring for compliance and anti-money laundering. The tie-up also converges blockchain with artificial intelligence (AI), using data that can be tracked and monetized using blockchain technology, aided by Blockseer's blockchain and data analytics expertise.

DMG's bitcoin mining operation expanding rapidly

Not all companies with the word “blockchain” attached to them offer the chance for shareholder returns. DMG Blockchain Technologies (TSXV:DMGI) is different, very different.

Over the past year DMG has evolved into a full-service blockchain company that offers superb diversification in the form of four revenue streams:

  • Bitcoin mining
  • Mining as a Service (MAAS)
  • Forensics & data analysis
  • Blockchain software development and management

As of the end of January DMG had $27,969,328 in funding available. The bulk of the money ($10.5 million) is earmarked for bitcoin mining. $7.5 million is allocated to software development related to supply chain management – one of DMG's four revenue pillars – with another $5 million going towards potential acquisitions. On the same day it started trading on the Venture exchange, DMG announced a cash and share deal valued at C$16 million to acquire BlockSeer, an analytics tool that allows users to “follow the bitcoins” as they move through the blockchain. The $27.9 million figure also includes purchasing a third bitcoin mining facility.

On the revenue side, it is estimated that DMG will pull in over $27 million annually just from bitcoin mining, based on the number of servers it plans to deploy, at current bitcoin prices.

Cielo Waste Solutions Received Important Permitting News

The pullback earlier this week in the stock markets did not spare Cielo Waste Solutions (CSE:CMC), but it was brief. Hopefully sharp aheadoftheherd.com CMC shareholders took advantage of the opportunity to load up on more shares because the stock jumped on Thursday by 13.7%!

There’s more good news. Cielo just received a letter from the Alberta Government stating that the permit application for its Aldersyde/High River property to produce high-grade renewable diesel is moving forward nicely.

“The Director considers the application to be complete for the purpose of public consultation,” reads the letter from the Department of Environment and Parks. Cielo requires the permit to operate its first continuous flow renewable diesel refinery.

“We are extremely pleased to have received our acknowledgement of completeness as to our EPEA permit application. It is confirmation that this critical step is now almost behind us and the anticipated timing for receiving our permit is on schedule,” said Don Allan, President and CEO. “This will facilitate us being able to commission our refinery and place it on-stream by late spring. We now look forward to continuing our progress and reporting it to our investors and stakeholders.”

This is a major catalyst that pushes Cielo one step closer towards becoming one of the most revolutionary plays the Venture exchange has ever seen given what they’re trying to tackle.

Cielo's renewable or “green” diesel can be made by running any fibrous material through a catalyst, whose ingredients are proprietary. Eligible materials include landfill waste, plastics, organics like table scraps or lawn clippings, cardboard, sawdust and tires.

Cielo Waste Solutions Corp.: Exclusive Renewable Diesel Technology Turns Trash Into Cash

In Canada the Renewable Fuels Regulations, in place since 2010, require fuel producers and importers to have an average renewable fuel content of at least 2% based on the volume of diesel fuel and heating distillate oil that they produce or import into Canada with the goal of reducing Canada's greenhouse gas emissions by 17 percent from 2005 levels by 2020. Many Provinces have also added their own mandated blending ratios.

The demand for biodiesel in Canada is estimated at 600 million litres a year.

For its product Cielo is initially targeting Alberta gasoline and diesel refiners, of which there are currently only about half a dozen.

The company forecasts it will be able to charge around 25 percent more for its renewable diesel than traditional biodiesel, due to it being higher grade, usable year round, and has a longer shelf life due to its zero water content.

Up to last summer Cielo had been running a demonstration plant in Red Deer, AB. That demonstration plant has been disassembled and relocated to High River, AB. It’s being retrofitted into a 350 liter an hour continuous flow refinery that will be the Company’s first commercially viable plant, with another to follow. The second plant will be designed to produce renewable diesel at a rate of 1,800 liters per hour, a 500% increase from the Company’s proof of concept retrofitted demonstration plant..

According to a short note I received from Michael Yeung, VP Business Development & Capital Markets:

We are not sitting still and our main focus is to generate long term returns for our shareholders.

We are currently focusing on the things we can control such as:

  • We are continuing to focus on getting into production on schedule. Our fabrication is working around the clock.
  • Our engineers are continuously "dotting the "I"s and crossing the "t"s to ensure a smooth on-stream
  • Our compliance and permitting team is working diligently with the government to move our approvals forward and pushing as hard as they can.  We believe we should hear comments back from the government over the next 4 to 6 weeks. This isn’t too far away. Permits are on schedule and keeps us on track for a late spring on-stream date.
  • Our capital markets team are working to get in front of existing and new investors to spread the story. We were just recently in Vancouver. We will be in Toronto February 22nd and February 23rd. So if you are in downtown Toronto on either dates let me know if you would like to sit down and hear our story or get an update.
  • We believe we are materially undervalued and only months away from running our first continuous refinery - a technology that could be worth billions.”

Despite decades of educating North Americans on the benefits of recycling, plus cutting-edge technologies that sort and recycle everything from tires to table scraps, billions of tonnes of garbage continue to be landfilled every year.

According to Natural Resources Canada, in a lifetime the average North American will throw away 600 times his or her weight in garbage, meaning a 150-pound adult will heave 90,000 pounds of trash into the dumpster from birth to death.

It's estimated that globally, solid-waste generation will triple to 11 million tons a day by the end of this century – in spite of the fact that we are running out of landfill space, especially in land-constrained places like Japan and Europe.

The World’s Garbage is a huge problem, made worse by China’s recent decision to ban imports of recyclables. But Cielo has a solution, and it could be BIG.

I expect a lot more news and activity in the market as they move closer towards launching their next phase of development so make sure you stay tuned.

I’ve got Ceilo Waste Systems (CSE:CMC) on my radar screen. Do you?

If not, maybe you should.

Advantagewon With Bread and Butter

The rule of contrarian investing is key, and should never be forgotten by serious resource investors. When a sector looks to be down and out, that is the time to consider taking positions. Ahead of the Herd recently identified a very interesting oil company that has developed an intriguing business model that flies in the face of what traditional oil and gas development companies do. Moreover, it is at odds, in a good way, with the big shale oil producers that have received so much attention in the press about how shale is going to pave the way to US energy independence and overtake Russia as the globe’s dominant oil producer. While that is still up for debate, what is beyond dispute is the simplicity of the company’s business model, and the investor upside that could easily accrue if its strategy and production plan stay on track in 2018.

Ahead of the Herd Newsletter - 2018 Issue One

Saturday February 3rd

This week’s newsletter has two feature articles.

The first article is titled ‘The World’s Garbage.’ The first link in the article is a must read, they are all good reads, but this one is special.

In August 2017 China told the World Trade Organization (WTO) that by the end of the year it will no longer accept 24 categories of solid waste as part of a government campaign against “foreign garbage.” This is an extremely big deal because the ban is creating a huge problem for countries that produce an excess of recycled waste they need to get rid of.

I think aheadoftheherd.com can point them in the direction of a solution.

Our second article is ‘1 2 3, Aben Is a Three Trick Pony Ride.’

It’s common for a junior gold company to have just one strong property worthy of raising funds for an exploration program, we call these ‘a one trick pony.’ Unfortunately miss on the one project and the junior goes to sleep while investors flee. Having three properties that can all be considered stand-alone projects of which any two could have easily been spun out into separate companies is rare.

Aben’s Chico Gold Project in northern Saskatchewan is a February drill ready gold play. Many discoveries, all deserving follow up work have been made on ABN’s British Columbia’s Golden Triangle Forest Kerr Project. The company’s Justin Project, a classic intrusion-related gold system, despite not being ABN’s primary or even secondary focus of exploration effort already has two exciting discoveries with the potential for more.

Aben is a true three trick pony for us investors to ride.
