Mandalay Resources Corporation Moves to Care and Maintenance at its Cerro Bayo (Chile) Mine

Dela

TORONTO, Sept. 29, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mandalay Resources Corporation ("Mandalay" or the "Company") (TSX:MND), announced today that it is moving to care and maintenance status at its Cerro Bayo operations effective today.  Mine production there has been suspended since the June 9, 2017 inundation of the Delia NW mine.

In the transition to care and maintenance, the workforce is being substantially reduced in order to preserve the Company's financial capacity to invest in restarting operations once it is confident that this can be accomplished safely and all permits are obtained.

Continuing employees will be engaged in:

  • ongoing care and maintenance of the mine, plant, and infrastructure for restart at short notice and low cost;
  • supporting completion of the third party investigation and risk assessment for safely resuming underground mining in the Laguna Verde area, which contains more than 70% of the current reserves;
  • obtaining all permits necessary to mine the current reserves; and
  • drilling the highest priority exploration targets for additional reserves.

The technical investigation and risk assessment to support safe future mining in the Laguna Verde area will be completed in the fourth quarter of 2017. These studies are necessary to ensure Mandalay, its employees, and the Chilean regulators that the Company can operate safely around Laguna Verde.

Mark Sander, President and CEO of Mandalay Resources, commented, "The Company wishes to express its gratitude to its employees, suppliers, and Chilean authorities for their support since the inundation. 

"We are committed to safe mining at Cerro Bayo and delivering the value this operation can create for employees through well-paid jobs; for the community through the purchase of goods and services from local businesses; for Chilean local and national governments through the payment of taxes on future operations; and for our shareholders. While we regret the impact this situation has on our employees and the community, in order to deliver this future value, we must take steps now to ensure we have the financial capacity to invest in the restart once all permits are received."

Dr. Sander concluded, "We look forward to working with the various Chilean governmental agencies to expeditiously complete all of the life of mine permits incorporating the recommendations of the technical studies."

Novel Preclinical Research Tools Provide Humanized Immune Response to Advance Immunotherapeutic Development, Live Webinar Hosted by Crown Bioscience19.10.2017 14:00Pressmeddelande

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Crown Bioscience, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Crown Bioscience International (TWSE:ticker 6554) and a global drug discovery and development services company providing translational platforms to advance oncology, inflammation, cardiovascular and metabolic disease research, announces a live webinar to be presented by Dr. Michelle Mack, Director of Global Scientific Engagement, entitled "Beyond Syngeneics - Novel Tools for Addressing Human Specificity in Immuno-Oncology." Checkpoint inhibitors like anti-PD-1, anti-PD-L1, and anti-CTLA-4 have revolutionized cancer treatment and have recently gained approval in several cancer types.

Crown Bioscience has generated innovative research models to address these obstacles early during preclinical drug development.

Perfectus Aluminum Inc. Responds to Trade Group19.10.2017 13:00Pressmeddelande

ONTARIO, Calif., Oct. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Perfectus Aluminum Inc. has issued the following: On October 12, 2017 the Aluminum Extruders Council (AEC), an industry group representing largely American aluminum extruders, posted to its blog a false narrative regarding a suit to which Perfectus Aluminum Inc. is a related party. The government is not "seeking unpaid duties from Perfectus for goods brought into the country." Rather, the government is attempting to use a 2017 Department of Commerce determination to assess retroactive antidumping duties on goods imported as early as 2011. It is discouraging that AEC would tout such an obviously egregious government overstep as a "victory" to their members and the industry: were it one of AEC's own members facing such an obvious violation of fair play and due process, it would rightfully argue that government overreach is a threat to manufacturers everywhere. In addition to the hypocrisy of the AEC's promotion of this case, its s
