More than 500 individuals around the globe spent two days coming up with innovative ideas to address healthcare challenges at a hackathon organized at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health by the Health Systems Innovation Lab.

The hackathon, which was held April 5–6, 2024, was focused on promoting an environment that would allow participants to use artificial intelligence and digital health to develop solutions to improve healthcare in the areas of mental health, cancer, cardiovascular illnesses and diabetes.

The hackathon drew participants from more than 30 countries to various hubs globally, including Santiago, Chile; Kyiv, Ukraine; Buenos Aires, Argentina; London, the United Kingdom; Sao Paulo, Brazil; Boston, United States; Lima and other cities in Peru.

Those who took part in the event include postdocs, young professionals and students.

The event kicked off with a panel moderated by Professor Rifat Atun, director of the Health Systems Innovation Lab. Panelists shared insights on the latest trends in the use of digital solutions and artificial intelligence in healthcare and how innovations could be sustained or scaled up in this scene.

Once the opening panel was done, the hackathon was officially launched. Throughout the two-day event, the teams received support from online as well as in-person mentors.

On Day 2, every team was required to present their ideas to panels of judges at every location, with a winner being chosen per track. One winning team from Boston, which focused on mental health, proposed an artificial intelligence bot dubbed to assist mental health patients adhere to their medication via personalized follow-up care.

According to Mariel Sander, one of the team’s members, low adherence to medications among mental-health patients occurs for many reasons, including distrust of physicians, poor health literacy, and side effects of drugs. The bot would converse with patients through text as well as over the phone and understand patient emotions from their language and voice.

Another winning team from Boston focused on cardiovascular disease and diabetes, coming up with a solution they called SweetAudio. They designed the machine-learning model to analyze variables in the human voice such as intensity or pitch in order to estimate levels of blood sugar. Hein Thu, one of the team members, explained that blood-sugar levels could affect the elasticity of the vocal cords and larynx, noting that chronic diabetes could lead to muscle weakness and diseases that could in turn bring about voice disorders.

The winning teams have been invited to take part in a bootcamp as they prepare to pitch their ideas to an international panel next month. Winners of the next event shall be invited to join the lab’s six-month Venture Incubation Program to advance their innovations. The program will provide online help from entrepreneurial and academic partners to the winners.

Many of the solutions developed will require built-to-purpose hardware systems and entities such as International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE: IBM) is working on to avail the needed software and hardware components to actualize the dreams of those who are focused on making the world better in different aspects, such as health.

International Business Machines Corp. (IBM), closed Monday's trading session at $181.9, up 0.176231%, on 3,076,451 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 5.748M and the stock's 52-week low/high is $120.55/$199.18.

Earlier this week, a group in North Dakota filed a ballot measure petition to legalize recreational marijuana in the state. The measure would permit individuals aged 21 years and older to buy products from registered marijuana establishments in the state and possess small amounts of marijuana.

For the measure to qualify for the November ballot, the group will have to collect 15,582 signatures from eligible voters by July 8, 2024.

In a release, the New Economic Frontier stated that the proposal would promote economic growth in North Dakota and reduce the burden on the criminal justice system. This committee is sponsoring the proposal. The state’s attorney general and secretary of state are expected to draft petition titles to be presented to the committee no later than April 25, 2024.

Steve Bakken, chair of the New Economic Frontier, stated that marijuana legalization was coming and noted that the measure had been carefully crafted to make sure it fit what the community really needed. According to this committee, the marijuana industry in America is expected to bring in more than $38 billion in revenue this year. The industry also supports 400,000 jobs, with the committee noting that the legalized marijuana industry offers funding for local programs and schools in large and small communities while also growing tax revenue.

Legalization also diversifies income streams and encourages economic development, which the committee notes would contribute to North Dakota’s long-term prosperity. Those in favor of legalizing recreational marijuana also say that legalization allows law enforcement to focus on more violent or serious crimes, which saves taxpayer money and improves public safety.

Statements by the officials from the state’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation support this as they note that violence linked to marijuana cultivation is rare, unlike other illegal substances such as cocaine and heroin. Mark Friese, a criminal defense attorney who is supporting the measure, stated that it was a sensible and conservative approach to legalization. Others have also argued that marijuana legalization would eliminate barriers for individuals with medical conditions who can’t access medical marijuana as well as veterans.

Additionally, adult-use legalization would ensure marijuana products are regulated by screening them for contaminants and testing their potency.

This isn’t the first time the state has taken steps toward marijuana legalization. In 2016, voters in the state passed Measure 5, which allowed a medical marijuana program to be established in North Dakota. One year later, the state’s legislature approved changes to the initiative and eliminated a provision that afforded medical users’ permission to grow cannabis. Previous efforts to legalize recreational cannabis in 2018 and 2022 failed.

Marijuana industry actors such as Aurora Cannabis Inc. (NASDAQ: ACB) (TSX: ACB) based in other jurisdictions with regulated cannabis markets will be keeping an eye on the developments in North Dakota to see if this also state ends prohibition this year.

A recent study by a California-based researcher has revealed that policymakers could address consumer concerns of range anxiety by tweaking existing electric-vehicle-charger subsidies. The study found that although range anxiety is still a barrier to electric vehicle adoption in the United States, it is a solvable problem that can be alleviated.

Adjusting the current federal charging-station-subsidies program to penalize charging outages and incentivize successful usage would be more effective at mitigating public charging concerns, the expert says.

Although battery electric vehicles (BEVs) were originally expected to replace the fossil-fuel-powered cars on American roads to help the country limit its greenhouse-gas emissions, electric vehicle adoption has been extremely slow since Tesla first launched the Roadster more than a decade ago. High prices coupled with sparse and often unreliable charging infrastructure across most of the country have consistently hindered EV adoption.

Even as electric-vehicle prices have cooled in the wake of a fierce price discount war between Tesla and a myriad of Chinese EV makers, the unreliability of public charging is still preventing many drivers from making the switch to electric cars. Andrew Campbell, executive director of the University of California’s Energy Institute at Haas, explains that “poor charger reliability” has negatively impacted consumer confidence in battery electric cars.

Consequently, investing in public-charging stations is unlikely to boost electric-vehicle adoption in any meaningful way if drivers still have reservations about public-charging facilities, Campbell wrote in a recent blog post. As most of America’s public-EV-charging infrastructure is concentrated in the Western region, there are vast swathes of the country with barely any access to EV charging.

Furthermore, Campbell points out, a 2023 JD Power survey suggested that every one in five attempts to use a public EV charger fails, meaning consumers with access to charges don’t always have a smooth experience. According to Campbell, many American consumers will only switch to a battery electric car if public charging is “widespread and reliable.” He adds that since the federal government has committed to building out America’s public-charging network, state agencies as well as the Federal Highway Administration should ensure the public chargers are reliable.

In comparison, petrol and diesel refueling stations in the country are in such abundance that the average driver will never worry about not finding a gas station. As the federal government builds out the country’s public-charging infrastructure, providing incentives for stations with consistently functional chargers and penalizing stations with regular outages will go a long way toward encouraging reliability and building customer confidence.

If these suggestions are implemented by the relevant authorities, they could supplement the other efforts that individual companies such as Workhorse Group Inc. (NASDAQ: WKHS) are taking to deepen their market penetration in the short and long run.

Earlier this week, federal officials unveiled new rules protecting miners from silica dust, a toxic component that gets trapped in lung tissue causing scarring and inflammation. Silica is found in abundance on earth and is roughly 20 times more toxic than coal dust. It is commonly found in the quartz that surrounds coal seams.

This is a growing issue in mines that has left some individuals sick and even caused some individuals to die. Researchers have, for decades now, recommended that exposure to silica dust be limited and regulated so overexposure is avoided.

The new rules impose exposure limits applied to every worker in the United States in mining operations. Chris Williamson, assistant secretary of labor for mine safety and health, stated that no miner needed to sacrifice their lungs or overall health to provide for their families.

The Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) acted on the situation after a joint investigative report was conducted by NPR, Public Health Watch, Mountain State Spotlight, Ohio Valley ReSource and Louisville Public Media. The report exposed several issues: the ongoing overexposure to silica dust; the severity and fatal nature of black lung disease; how the disease affected thousands of young miners; and failure by mine-safety regulators to respond to this issue for decades.

The investigations determined that since 2010, more than 4,000 cases of black lung disease were registered, with hundreds of deaths being recorded.

In a statement, Julie Su, acting secretary of labor, said that it was unconscionable that miners in the U.S. worked without sufficient protection from this toxic component despite the fact that it was a known hazard.

MSHA published the entire text of the new regulations in the federal register this week.

The new rules require mining companies to change working conditions when the presence of silica dust is noted to be excessive and monitor the air miners breathe while working. Any instance of overexposure must also be reported.

Cecil Roberts, global president of the United Mine Workers of America, stated that this was a crucial step in keeping miners healthy and safe. Roberts noted that the focus would now shift to holding mining companies accountable.

Mining companies shall be afforded time to adjust to the new changes, with coal mines being given 12 months to prepare. Other mines, referred to as metal/nonmetal mines, will have two years to adapt to these changes. Metal/nonmetal mines will also need to conduct dust sampling in addition to health surveillance programs with regular examinations to detect lung disease caused by silica inhalation while it’s still in the early stages. The results of these exams must be presented to NIOSH.

Coal extraction companies such as Alliance Resource Partners L.P. (NASDAQ: ARLP) will now have to adhere to these new rules on silica dust due to be enforced by federal authorities after the grace period stipulated.

Alliance Resource Partners L.P. (ARLP), closed Monday's trading session at $21.2, up 0.473934%, on 282,199 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 13.178M and the stock's 52-week low/high is $17.05/$24.30.

Coinbase Global Inc. (NASDAQ: COIN) CEO Brian Armstrong has announced that the American crypto exchange’s design team has begun exploring the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in its activities. The cryptocurrency boss’s announcement indicates that Coinbase is getting comfortable with leveraging AI in its operations despite its initial warnings about the emerging technology.

According to Armstrong, the crypto exchange’s design team is using AI for a myriad of reasons, including the testing of a certain AI design generator. For instance, Armstrong explained on social media platform X, using a simple text prompt to generate a Figma mockup that can act as a design starting point. He added that the artificial intelligence-powered tool can then convert the Figma design into front-end code, allowing design team members to generate front-end code that is in line with Coinbase’s design system.

The team can also train the codes to enhance the experience of users who interact with the cryptocurrency exchange’s user interfaces.

Coinbase was late to the artificial intelligence party, especially in the cryptocurrency space, and initially claimed that the emergence of several AI crypto projects was just hype that would have no actual utility. Despite its initial reluctance to adopt AI technology, Coinbase seems to be joining the growing group of digital-asset service providers that are interested in AI or already using the novel technology in a myriad of ways.

Many digital-asset service providers are particularly interested in integrating the Blockchain with artificial intelligence to provide their users with more secure and sophisticated services.

Neura, a recently unveiled AI project from blockchain infrastructure provider Ankr can mitigate some of the foundational challenges that AI startups face. Proper Neura functionality will require the integration of decentralized GPU resources, on-chain AI operations and cryptocurrency-based crowdfunding.

Flare Network has also hinted that it may be interested in leveraging a new AI-based approach that combines the security and safety of both the blockchain and artificial intelligence. Ripple has also revealed that it is currently developing an AI model called Consensus Learning (CL) that will support collaborative cross-application AI.

Continued advancements in AI have made the technology a potentially disruptive tool with numerous applications across most industries. In the asset-management field, managers are getting increasingly interested in AI because it can help them eliminate the drudgery that is often associated with striving for tangible results.

Asset management company Ark Invest has reportedly invested nearly 4% of its Asset Under Management (AUM) in AI giant OpenAI while JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon says AI technology has huge economic potential in all aspects of society.

The U.S. government, along with Germany and the United Kingdom, rank among the major holders of cryptocurrency worldwide, according to Arkham, a platform specializing in decrypting blockchain entitie. Arkham recently released a dashboard highlighting governments with significant cryptocurrency holdings. Through the new tracking feature, users can obtain up-to-date information about governments’ crypto balances and transaction histories.

The announcement came on April 12, 2024,  highlighting the United States, the UK and Germany as the top three nations, respectively, in terms of cryptocurrency ownership.

The data reveals that the U.S. government leads the pack, holding a substantial amount of Bitcoin (BTC) totaling 212,847 BTC as of the latest update. This sum, valued at approximately $15 billion based on current market prices, underscores the scale of the government’s crypto holdings. Additionally, the U.S. government possesses around $200 million worth of other cryptos, including Ether (ETH), as well as major stablecoins such as Tether and USDC.

Following the U.S., the United Kingdom owns 61,245 BTC valued at about $4.5 billion, while Germany holds 49,858 BTC, equivalent to approximately $3.5 billion.

Contrastingly, the El Salvadoran government, despite being the pioneer in adopting Bitcoin as legal tender in 2021, holds a relatively smaller amount of BTC. As per Arkham’s data, El Salvador possesses 5,717 BTC, valued at $405 million.

Arkham’s unveiling of the leading governments based on their Bitcoin holdings signifies a step toward transparency in understanding the crypto assets held by influential entities such as nation-states. Notably, revelations about the extensive BTC holdings of the U.S. government have been circulating publicly for some time.

Moreover, the dashboard sheds light on the ongoing accumulation of Bitcoin by the U.S. government. Since the beginning of 2023, Arkham’s data, along with other reports, indicate that the U.S. government has acquired approximately 5,000 BTC. A considerable portion of these holdings stems from seizures related to entities such as the dark web marketplace Silk Road, its affiliate Jimmy Zhong and the perpetrators of the Bitfinex exchange hack.

El Salvador sticks out with its consistent purchasing strategy, wherein the country adds one BTC to its treasury daily. President Nayib Bukele affirmed this approach in March, stating that El Salvador would continue this practice until acquiring BTC becomes financially unfeasible with fiat currencies. In contrast, the UK’s BTC holdings have remained static since mid-2021, and Germany’s last recorded transactions were in January.

Arkham’s tracking tool currently concentrates on particular regimes, with China’s holdings yet to be incorporated. However, data from Bitcoin Treasuries suggests that China may possess approximately 190,000 BTC.

This revelation that governments around the world hold significant crypto holdings provides some kind of validation to industry players such as Canaan Inc. (NASDAQ: CAN) that blockchain and crypto are here to stay and could soon enjoy mainstream acceptance, given that governments are warming up to these new currencies.

TerrAscend Corp. (TSNDF)

U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) director Robert Califf noted before a House committee on April 11, 2024, that there is no justification for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to postpone making the much-anticipated decision to move cannabis from Schedule I to III of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA).

However, Califf suggested that the DEA might treat recreational cannabis differently from medical cannabis, a move that could significantly impact the American marijuana industry. Analysts have speculated on the implications of such a potential distinction, noting that it might result in tax advantages for medical cannabis enterprises over recreational ones.

Califf’s remarks were made during a comprehensive hearing convened by Representative James Comer (R), who chairs the Oversight and Accountability House Committee. Comer raised concerns about the FDA’s oversight of new tobacco products used for nicotine vaporization and its reluctance to regulate products derived from hemp, such as CBD. In response to Comer’s criticisms, Califf shifted the responsibility to Congress, asserting that the current regulatory frameworks are inadequate for CBD and advocating for the establishment of new regulatory measures.

Califf’s discussion on the potential reclassification of cannabis was prompted by a query from Representative Nancy Mace (R), a prominent advocate for cannabis reform. Mace sought updates on the DEA’s assessment of the FDA’s findings from last year, which acknowledged the medicinal value of marijuana and recommended its reclassification to Schedule III.

Califf refrained from providing specific details, noting that he wouldn’t tell even if he knew. However, he emphasized the absence of justification for any delay on the part of the DEA, stressing the need for consideration of existing regulations. He also emphasized the importance of congressional guidance in navigating the cannabis regulation issue.

Drawing a line between recreational and medical cannabis, Califf highlighted the distinction between their respective purposes and routes of validation. While acknowledging the medical benefits of cannabis when used for therapeutic purposes, he cast doubt on its utility for recreational use, suggesting that it lacks medicinal value in such contexts. It remains unclear whether Califf’s insights will affect how the DEA makes a decision.

According to a DEA official, the agency typically takes up to six months to evaluate recommendations from health authorities regarding scheduling changes. This timeframe aligns with the duration since the current assessment of cannabis began. These discussions occurred amid the Biden administration’s efforts to promote marijuana pardons and oversee the cannabis scheduling review.

The entire marijuana industry, including leading companies such as TerrAscend Corp. (TSX: TSND) (OTCQX: TSNDF), will be waiting with bated breath to know what final decision the DEA makes regarding the rescheduling of marijuana under the CSA and the resultant implications for the trajectory of the industry.

The potential use of Lexaria's oral delivery platform for GLP-1 drugs, typically administered by injection or stomach-upsetting tablets, represents a massive market opportunity. This study approval marks a milestone for the company, with the first dosing set to begin within 30 days or less, and with tentative completion dates for this summer (

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX) is a global innovator in drug delivery platforms. The company’s patented technology, DehydraTECH™, improves the way active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) enter the bloodstream by promoting healthier oral ingestion methods and increasing the effectiveness of fat-soluble active molecules. DehydraTECH promotes fast-acting, less expensive and more effective oral drug delivery and has been thoroughly evaluated through in vivo, in vitro and human clinical testing.

DehydraTECH is covered by 21 issued and more than 50 pending patents in over 40 countries around the world. Lexaria’s first patent was issued by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in October 2016 (US 9,474,725 B1), providing 20 years of patent protection expiring June 2034. Multiple patents have been awarded since then and are expected in the future.

Lexaria has also collaborated with the National Research Council (NRC), the Canadian government’s premier research and technology organization. The company has been granted patent protection for specific delivery of nicotine, vitamins, NSAIDs, antiviral drugs, cannabinoids and more.

Lexaria began developing DehydraTECH in 2014 and has since continued to strengthen and broaden the technology. The company has no plans to create or sell Lexaria-branded products containing controlled substances. Instead, Lexaria licenses its technology to other companies around the world to offer consumers the best possible performance across an array of ingestible product formats.

The company’s technology is best thought of as an additional layer that providers of consumer supplements, prescription and non-prescription drugs, nicotine and CBD products can utilize to improve the effectiveness of their own existing or planned new offerings. Lexaria has licensed DehydraTECH to multiple companies, including a world-leading tobacco producer for the research and development of smokeless, oral-based nicotine products, and for use in industries that produce cannabinoid beverages, edibles and oral products.

DehydraTECH is suitable for use with a wide range of product formats including pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, consumer packaged goods and over-the-counter capsules, pills, tablets and oral suspensions.

DehydraTECH Technology

Lexaria’s DehydraTECH is designed specifically for formulating and delivering lipophilic (fat-soluble) drugs and active ingredients. DehydraTECH increases their effectiveness and improves the way active pharmaceutical ingredients enter the bloodstream. The major benefits to a subject ingesting a DehydraTECH-enabled drug or consumer product can be summarized by the following:

  • Speeds up delivery – the effects of the product are felt by the subject in just minutes.
  • Increases bioavailability – the technology is much more effective at delivering a drug or product into the bloodstream.
  • Increases brain absorption – animal testing suggests significant improvement in the quantity of drug delivered across the blood-brain barrier.
  • Improves drug potency – more of the ingested product is made available to the body, so lower doses are required to achieve the desired effect.
  • Reduces drug administration cost – lower doses mean lower overall drug costs.
  • Masks unwanted taste – the technology eliminates or reduces the need for sweeteners.

Lexaria has demonstrated in animal studies a propensity for DehydraTECH technology to elevate the quantity of drug delivered across the blood-brain barrier by as much as 1,900 percent, initiating additional new patent applications and opening possibilities for improved drug delivery.

Since 2016, DehydraTECH has repeatedly demonstrated, with cannabinoids and nicotine, the ability to increase bio-absorption by up to five to 10 times, reduce time of onset from one to two hours to just minutes, and mask unwanted tastes. The technology is to be further evaluated for additional orally administered bioactive molecules, including antivirals, cannabinoids, vitamins, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and nicotine.

Market Outlook

Lexaria’s ongoing research and development efforts are mainly focused on development of product candidates across several key segments:

  • Oral Cannabinoids – a market estimated to be worth $18.4 billion in 2021 and expected to reach $46.2 billion by 2025.

Reunion Gold Corp. (TSX.V: RGD) (OTCQX: RGDFF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Reunion Gold Corp. (TSX.V: RGD) (OTCQX: RGDFF) .

Reunion Gold (TSX.V: RGD) (OTCQX: RGDFF), together with G Mining Ventures Corp. (TSX: GMIN) (OTCQX: GMINF), today announced entry into a definitive agreement to combine the two companies, setting the stage for the creation of a leading intermediate gold producer (the "transaction").

Reunion Gold Corp. (TSX.V: RGD) (OTCQX: RGDFF) is a leading gold explorer in the Guiana Shield, South America. In early 2021, the Company announced an exciting new greenfield gold discovery at its Oko West project in Guyana, where, after 22 months of resource definition drilling, the Company has announced an initial Mineral Resource Estimate (MRE) containing 2.475 Moz of gold in Indicated resources at 1.84 g/t and 1.762 Moz of gold in inferred resources at 2.02 g/t contained within a pit shell outline. Preliminary metallurgy results performed by the company, consisting of 8 bottle roll tests obtained strong results, averaging just under 90% recoveries on average. The Company is continuing with additional development activities at Oko West, including environmental base line studies and additional metallurgical work relating to the delivery of a PEA by year end 2023. In addition, Reunion Gold is currently exploring several priority targets in the Oko West project area on which the company feels there is good potential to add additional resource ounces. This includes the opportunity to grow the initial mineral resource estimate (MRE) released on June 13, 2023, and to discover additional gold ounces at Oko West outside of the resource area.

The Guiana Shield remains one of the most prospective exploration locations globally for the discovery of world class orogenic gold deposits. The shield, including both Guyana and Surinam, contain large relatively underexplored greenstone belts, from which Reunion Gold expects many more significant gold discoveries could emerge in the coming years.

Oko West Project

Reunion Gold’s Oko West Project is a brand-new gold discovery in northwest Guyana located within the historical Oko gold district. Alluvial gold has been mined from the Oko district since the turn of the century, but very little primary gold has been mined or even explored for to the best of the company’s knowledge. The project comprises a prospecting license with an area of approximately 44 square kilometers and is 100% held by Reunion’s Guyanese subsidiary.

In 2020, Reunion Gold’s geochemical survey, trenching and initial 1000 m drill program discovered and confirmed the presence of gold mineralization in this Orogenic gold system. The gold occurs in the eastern edge of the project area, along a 6km long sheared contact between a granitoid intrusion and a meta volcanic-meta sedimentary rock package. The MRE is located within the Kairuni zone, which represents the northern most 1.9 km of the 6 km long contact.

“We are advancing our Oko West project along two tracks. The first is to advance the exploration programs outside of the Kairuni zone, aimed at outlining and discovering additional gold mineralization within our Prospecting License. On this front, I am very excited by the results from the initial Scout RC Geochem drill program that is defining new targets west of our Kairuni zone,” Rick Howes, President and CEO of Reunion Gold, stated in a recent news release. In addition to the targets west of the Kairuni zone, the company has also commenced exploration work on the southern ~ 4 km of the same sheared contact that hosts the Kairuni zone MRE. In addition, the company feels that the MRE marks the size of the Kairuni resource at a point in time and that there is good potential to continue to grow the resource. The MRE remains open at depth below the resource pit outline in the block 4 area and also to depth and along strike in the block 5 and 6 areas. In addition to the exploration programs, the second strategic track is to rapidly advance the Kairuni zone along the path to development. To that end the company is moving forward with the engineering and other studies, including more detailed metallurgical studies, that will support the release a PEA on the Kairuni zone by year end 2023 The company feels that the rapid advancement of development of Kairuni zone MRE, while in parallel continuing to explore for additional ounces on the project, is the best path to try and maximize shareholder value in the shortest period of time.


Guyana boasts a long history of mining gold, bauxite, diamonds and manganese. Still, the greenstone belts of the Guiana Shield remain relatively unexplored when compared to the analogous regions of the West African Shield (Birimian), which, according to geological evidence, was once connected to the Guiana Shield, forming a contiguous craton prior to the Mesozoic period.

Despite a historical lack of accessibility and low exploration intensity, several significant large-scale projects have emerged in the Guiana Shield, including Aurora, Oko West, Oko Main, Toroparu and Omai. Guyana is English speaking with a British based parliamentary and legal system and boasts the world’s fastest growing economy on the back of significant offshore oil discoveries by Exxon and its partners. It is expected that a significant amount of the revenues from oil production will be invested in improving the infrastructure, education and health care and agriculture within the country.

Market Opportunity

The World Gold Council, an industry association representing gold producers with hundreds of mining operations in nearly 50 countries around the world, called 2022 the “strongest year for gold demand in over a decade.” Annual gold demand jumped 18% YoY due to “colossal central bank purchases, aided by vigorous retail investor buying and slower ETF outflows.”

Despite this spike in demand, total annual gold supply increased by just 2% in 2022, halting two years of successive declines but failing to challenge 2018 highs. This supply-demand imbalance could provide a favorable market environment as Reunion Gold continues to advance drilling programs at its 100%-owned Oko West Project.

Management Team

Successful exploration and the discovery of significant deposits in any given region require immense amounts of local knowledge and experience. This is the principle around which Reunion Gold has built its management team. In total, the company’s leadership boasts over 225 years of combined experience in the Guiana Shield.

The announcement noted that this drilling program is designed to expand and infill an upcoming maiden mineral resource estimate for the Storm Project that is expected to be presented in May 2024. The Nunavut property consists of 173 contiguous mining claims covering an area of approximately 219,257 hectares on Somerset Island, Nunavut, Canada. "We are very excited to be drilling again at Storm," said Aston Bay CEO Thomas Ullrich in the press release. "This is the first of two significant drill programs our partner, American West, will be conducting this spring and summer, expanding on the known zones of mineralization and drilling for new discoveries. The drill bit has proven the effectiveness of moving loop electromagnetics, so we are pleased to see this geophysical program underway again as well. By tweaking the parameters and increasing the power used in the survey, we believe we will investigate deeper with more confidence. This could uncover geophysical anomalies related to deeper-seated mineralization — excellent targets for diamond drilling in the summer season."

Aston Bay is partnered with American West Metals (ASX: AW1) at Storm. American West is responsible for all exploration expenditures, having aggressively advanced the project toward production and earned an 80% interest. This affords excellent optionality to the company’s shareholders, as Aston Bay is free carried with no required expenditures until the completion of a bankable feasibility study.

American West recently completed an Australian JORC-compliant Maiden Resource Estimate for Storm; the North American 43-101 compliant resource estimate is expected in Q1 2024. American West is cashed up and plans a multimillion-dollar resource expansion and new discovery drilling program for the summer of 2024.

The Buckingham County Gold Project

The gold-bearing system at the Buckingham County Gold Project in Virginia lies within a belt hosting past producing mines, current gold mines and advanced gold explorations, stretching through Georgia, the Carolinas, Virginia, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland.

Buckingham hosts a “Kirkland Lake-style” high grade gold vein returning values consistently over one ounce gold per ton and is underexplored both at depth and along almost one mile of strike length. These types of veins have excellent ESG qualities, as they are typically mined using a small footprint underground method, with gold extracted using simple and environmentally friendly gravity methods.

Market Opportunity

The World Gold Council, the industry association for the world’s gold producers, estimated in 2023 the physical financial gold market, which is made up of bars, coins, gold ETFs and central bank reserves, is worth nearly $5 trillion. The council reports that gold mine production adds approximately 3,500 tons of the precious metal to the world’s supply annually, equivalent to about 2% growth.

This historical scarcity and relatively slow production of new supply, as compared to other commodities, is a primary reason gold has retained its value for millennia, according to the council.

A report from Acumen Research and Consulting, a global provider of market intelligence and consulting services, valued the global copper market at $304.1 billion in 2022 and forecast that it will reach a market size of $496.8 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 5.1% over the forecast period.

The report identifies a growing demand for copper in the electronics industry, as well as an expanding copper supply due to increasing production from existing mines and the rising number of mine development projects in developing nations, as driving factors in the rising value of the copper market.

Reflex Advanced Materials Corp. (CSE: RFLX) (OTCQB: RFLXF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Reflex Advanced Materials Corp. (CSE: RFLX) (OTCQB: RFLXF).

Artificial intelligence ("AI") technology has the potential to facilitate sustainability and boost profitability in the manufacturing space, an industry expert says. James Newman, head of product and portfolio marketing at technology company Augury, notes that AI can be instrumental in launching and running sustainability initiatives that allow manufacturers to position themselves as enviable employers for the incoming generation of new talent. Newman adds that the novel but incredibly advanced technology can also help employers in the manufacturing space upgrade the skills of their current cadre of employees. Augury develops purpose-built Internet of Things ("IoT") and artificial intelligence-based solutions to monitor machine and process health for manufacturers. These benefits of artificial intelligence in manufacturing can also be enjoyed by players such as Reflex Advanced Materials Corp. (CSE: RFLX) (OTCQB: RFLXF) in the mining industry, as well as actors in many other industries and sectors.

Reflex Advanced Materials Corp. (CSE: RFLX) (OTCQB: RFLXF) is a strategic minerals company focused on locating and developing economic properties in the strategic metals and advanced materials space. The company aims to improve domestic specialty mineral infrastructure efficiencies to meet surging national demand from North American manufacturers, effectively positioning itself as one of the only North American suppliers of high purity natural graphite for hi-tech applications.

Reflex Advanced Materials is based in Vancouver, British Columbia. Its project portfolio includes the Ruby Graphite Deposit in Montana and the ZigZag Lithium Property in Ontario.


Ruby Graphite Project

Located in a mining-friendly jurisdiction in southwest Montana, the Ruby Graphite Deposit is a low cost, rapid re-entry opportunity that produced roughly 2,400 tons of graphite from 1902 to 1948. Reflex Advanced Materials holds mining rights for 755 hectares at the Ruby Graphite Project, with 96 federal lode mining claims. Recent samples assay at 95.8% to 98.4% total carbon.

The site is notable as the only combined U.S. graphite flake and vein graphite source. Vein graphite is ideal for energy storage applications, because it requires fewer steps to achieve purity than synthetic alternatives and is therefore far less environmentally damaging. This is expected to play a key role in the project’s development as demand for electric vehicles continues to surge.

In March 2023, the company announced its submittal of permit applications to the Bureau of Land Management in respect of its exploration of the Ruby Graphite Project. Its initial drill program, expected to take place in the summer of 2023, includes plans for 3,500 total meters of drilling, cored to an average depth of 130 meters. The targets for this drill program have been identified using historical data from original mine operations and data gathered for the initial 43-101 technical report on the project, dated January 31, 2023.

ZigZag Lithium Property

Located in the Thunder Bay Mining Division of Ontario, the ZigZag Lithium Property consists of eight mining claims spanning roughly 2,710 hectares. Mineralization at the property, most notably lithium, is based in pegmatite dikes and concentrated in spodumene crystals, which are consistent throughout the entire unit.

Spodumene is readily observable in outcrops and in drill cores, with crystal sizes ranging from 3-15cm, on average.

Reflex Advanced Materials and American Energy Technologies Company Metallurgical Partnership

Reflex Advanced Materials has entered into a material processing agreement with American Energy Technologies Co., which is based in Arlington Heights, Illinois, to conduct metallurgical testwork with the goal of creating a technical support data package for Reflex’s target customer base, U.S. Federal agencies and qualification programs with hi-tech customers in the battery and battery storage business.

The resulting coated, spherionized, purified graphite (CSPG) material that is expected to be created from the aforementioned tests will be used to provide potential customers of CSPG with samples so that they can begin the material qualification process.

Market Opportunity

Graphite is an ideal battery anode and has dominated the market since the proliferation of lithium-ion batteries. Despite this demand, there is currently no significant production of lithium-ion battery anode material in North America.

Instead, most graphite sold in North America today is sourced from Chinese producers. U.S. President Joe Biden highlighted this sourcing disparity in a 2022 address:

“The United Stated depends on unreliable foreign sources for many of the strategic and critical materials necessary for the clean energy transition – such as lithium, nickel, cobalt, graphite and manganese for large-capacity batteries,” he said. “Demand for such materials is projected to increase exponentially as the world transitions to a clean energy economy.”

The U.S. Department of Energy is in the process of awarding $2.8 billion to expand domestic manufacturing of batteries for electric vehicles and combat this foreign dependency. Reflex Advanced Materials has identified its Ruby Graphite Project as a prime candidate for U.S.-sponsored initiatives due to the rarity and scarcity of natural graphite deposits in the country.

Processing graphite domestically in the U.S. is expected to provide Reflex Advanced Materials a competitive advantage as manufacturers begin to seek out American supply in the face of increased diplomatic tension. This is critical, as a rise in anode demand is expected to fuel a shortage of 8 million tonnes of graphite by 2040. World Bank Group projects 494% growth in total graphite demand by 2050.

Leadership Team

Paul Gorman is the CEO and a Director of Reflex Advanced Materials. He brings to the company over 25 years of experience in junior mining finance, public listings, viability assessment and operational rationalization. For 18 years, Mr. Gorman served as president and managing partner of Riverbank Capital, where he played an instrumental role in raising more than $85 million for small-cap companies. In 2008, he funded Industrial Minerals Inc. (later Northern Graphite) and served in an advisory role for four other graphite companies, contributing significantly to the revitalization of the junior graphite space in North America. Mr. Gorman founded Mega Graphite Inc. in 2009 and has served as chief executive for three other companies.

Tasheel Jeerh, CPA, is the company’s CFO. He is a finance and accounting professional with over a decade of experience spanning both public and private sectors. Prior to joining Reflex Advanced Materials, Mr. Jeerh played a pivotal role in the growth of a private upstream oil and gas firm, dealing with over $2 billion in M&A activity and $1 billion in financing activities. He gained his designation at PricewaterhouseCoopers, where he worked as a manager in the assurance practice.

Greg Bell is Project Manager for Reflex Advanced Materials. He is a multi-disciplined engineering management professional with more than 40 years of experience in the natural resources sector. Mr. Bell has successfully built and managed several start-up operations in various capacities. He has been active in graphite and lithium exploration for the past seven years.

CNM-Au8 is an oral suspension with demonstrated activity in restoring neuronal health and function by increasing energy production and utilization

Treatment with CNM-Au8 investigated in clinical trials adjunctive to standard-of-care exhibits no known drug interactions, and aims to enhance function and survival

Nearly 90,000 people are diagnosed with Parkinson's disease every year with no approved drug to slow or halt disease progression currently available

The Parkinson's disease treatment market was valued at $4.61 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $11.98 billion by 2030

In recognition of April as Parkinson's Disease Awareness Month, IBN is highlighting Clene (NASDAQ: CLNN), a late clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on improving mitochondrial health and protecting neuronal function to treat neurodegenerative diseases, including Parkinson's disease ("PD"), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis ("ALS"), and multiple sclerosis ("MS"). Clene is developing its lead drug candidate CNM-Au8(R) for potential treatment of these neurodegenerative diseases. CNM-Au8 is an oral suspension designed to restore neuronal health and function by increasing energy production and utilization by driving critical cellular energy-producing reactions that enable neuroprotection and remyelination. The result is an increase in neuronal and glial resilience to disease-relevant stressors.

Clene Inc. (NASDAQ: CLNN) is a late clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on improving mitochondrial health and protecting neuronal function to treat neurodegenerative diseases, including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis (MS).

Its lead drug candidate is CNM-Au8®, an oral suspension developed to restore neuronal health and function by increasing energy production and utilization by driving critical cellular energy producing reactions that enable neuroprotection and remyelination to increase neuronal and glial resilience to disease-relevant stressors. CNM-Au8 is being studied in various clinical trials, including the Harvard/MGH Healey ALS Platform clinical trial for patients with ALS; RESCUE-ALS, a completed proof-of-concept clinical trial in patients with early symptomatic ALS; the REPAIR trials, completed target engagement clinical trials showing brain energy metabolite change with CNM-Au8; and a completed MS clinical trial for the treatment of visual pathway deficits in chronic optic neuropathy for remyelination in stable relapsing MS. The company also has a nanotherapeutic platform of drug discovery.


CNM-Au8, Clene’s lead asset, is a highly concentrated aqueous suspension of catalytically active, clean-surfaced, faceted gold nanocrystals. Multiple pathogenic insults contribute to neuronal death. Mitochondrial dysfunction and NAD+ decline is a common final pathway in neurodegeneration, with NAD+ as a critical determinant of cell survival and function. CNM-Au8’s catalytic mechanisms target the energetic deficits, oxidative stress and accumulation of misfolded proteins that are common to many neurodegenerative diseases.

The unique catalytic mechanism of action of CNM-Au8 is hypothesized to act as a neuroprotective and remyelinating therapy in neurodegenerative disease states in order to: (1) drive, support and maintain beneficial metabolic and energetic cellular reactions within diseased, stressed and/or damaged cells, (2) directly catalyze the reduction of harmful, reactive oxygen species (“ROS”) and (3) promote protein homeostasis via activation of the heat shock factor-1 pathway, recognized to dampen the cytotoxicity caused by misfolded and denatured proteins, which are known to occur ubiquitously in neurodegenerative diseases.

CNM-Au8 is used in combination with other agents, has no known drug-drug interactions, and is designed to improve function and survival. The clinical effects of both function and survival were seen in its clinical ALS trials, as earlier announced.

More than 500 estimated years of collective exposure across ALS, MS, and Parkinson’s disease participants in CNM-Au8 clinical trials and Expanded Access Protocol (compassionate use) programs have been recorded without any observed safety signals.

CNM-Au8 is a federally registered trademark of Clene Inc. Clene, based in Salt Lake City, Utah, with R&D and manufacturing operations in Maryland, began in 2013.

Market Opportunity

ALS is the most prevalent adult-onset progressive motor neuron disease, affecting approximately 30,000 people in the U.S. and an estimated 500,000 people worldwide, with a life expectancy of typically three to five years. Clene estimates that global ALS treatment sales will be greater than $1 billion annually within the coming few years. Additional treatments affecting daily function and survival remain the market need.

Additionally, there are more than 2 million MS patients globally, and Clene estimates the market size to be worth more than $23 billion annually. While the MS community has been successful at limiting relapses, non-relapsing MS patients continue to clinically deteriorate even while receiving effective immunomodulatory disease-modifying therapies (“DMTs”). A critical unmet medical need remains for therapeutic interventions that protect neuronal function and myelin health independent of immunomodulation to address progression independent of relapse activity.

CNS Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: CNSP) is a clinical stage biotechnology company specializing in the development of novel treatments for primary and metastatic cancers of the brain and central nervous system.

The company was founded in 2017 and is headquartered in Houston, Texas.

Organ Targeted Therapeutics

The company’s lead drug candidate, Berubicin, is proposed for the treatment of glioblastoma multiforme (“GBM”), an aggressive and incurable form of brain cancer. Berubicin also has potential to treat other central nervous system malignancies. Based on limited clinical data, Berubicin appears to be the first anthracycline to cross the blood brain barrier in the adult brain, and it was the subject of a successful Phase 1 study which found the MDT and produced efficacy data as well.

CNS holds a worldwide exclusive license to the Berubicin chemical compound. The company has acquired all requisite data and know-how from Reata Pharmaceuticals Inc. related to a completed Phase I clinical trial of Berubicin in malignant brain tumors. In this trial, 44% of patients experienced a statistically significant improvement in clinical benefit. In 2017, CNS entered into a collaboration and asset purchase agreement with Reata.

CNS intends to explore the potential of Berubicin to treat other diseases, including pancreatic and ovarian cancers and lymphoma. The company is also examining plans to develop combination therapies that include Berubicin.

CNS estimates that more than $25 million in private capital and grants were invested in Berubicin prior to the company’s $9.8 million IPO in November 2019.

CNS intends to submit an IND for Berubicin during the fourth quarter of 2020 and expects to commence a Phase II clinical trial of Berubicin for the treatment of GBM in the U.S. in Q1 2021. A sub-licensee partner was awarded a $6 million EU/Polish National Center for Research and Development grant to undertake a Phase II trial of Berubicin in adults and a first-ever Phase I trial in pediatric GBM patients in Poland in 2021.

The company’s second drug candidate, WP1244, is a novel DNA binding agent licensed from the MD Anderson Cancer Center. In preclinical studies, WP1244 proved to be 500-times more potent than the chemotherapeutic agent, daunorubicin, in inhibiting tumor cell proliferation. The company has entered into a sponsored research agreement with the MD Anderson Cancer Center to further the development of WP1244.

CNS Pharmaceuticals recently engaged U.S.-based Pharmaceutics International Inc. and Italian BSP Pharmaceuticals SpA for the production of the Berubicin drug product. The company has implemented a dual-track manufacturing strategy to mitigate COVID-19-related risks, diversify its supply chain and provide for localized availability of Berubicin. CNS has already completed synthesis of Berubicin’s active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) and has shipped the API to both manufacturers in order to prepare an injectable form of Berubicin for clinical use.

Global Brain Tumor Therapeutics Market

The high recurrence rate of malignant brain tumors is due to reappearance of focal masses, indicating that a sub-population of tumor cells in these cancers may be insensitive to current therapies and may be responsible for reinitiating tumor growth. This necessitates the development of newer drugs in the market that demonstrate greater efficacy in treating such aggressive cancers.

A global increase in neurological disorders has placed increased attention on cancers of the brain over the past decade. Neurological disorders are becoming one of the most prevalent types of disorders, due to longer life expectancy, greater exposure to infection and an increasingly sedentary lifestyle. Because few treatments for primary and metastatic cancers of the brain exist, costs are high and have acted as a restraint for the brain tumor therapeutics market.

Despite progress in surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapeutic strategies, effective treatments for brain cancer are limited by a lack of specific therapies for the brain and the difficulty in transporting therapeutic compounds across the blood brain barrier. Therefore, there is a significant need for novel and effective therapeutic drugs and strategies that prolong survival and improve quality of life for brain tumor patients.

Several companies are making significant investments into R&D, which is expected to bring more treatment options to the market in the near future. Industry reports consistently project continued growth in the market.

One report estimates that the global brain tumor therapeutics market will reach a valuation of $2.74 billion in 2023, with the market expected to register a CAGR of 11% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2023. Another report projects that the global brain tumor therapeutics market will reach $3.4 billion by 2025, up from $2.25 billion in 2019 (
