Nevada Sunrise Agreement On Lithium Claims in Clayton Valley, Nevada

SEPTEMBER 2, 2015, Vancouver, British Columbia – Nevada Sunrise Gold Corporation (“Nevada Sunrise” or the “Company”) (TSXV: NEV) is pleased to announce it has entered into a letter agreement for an option to purchase the Neptune property (“Neptune, or the “Property”) located in the Clayton Valley, Esmeralda County, Nevada, USA.

Neptune (formerly known as the Clayton Deep property) is located approximately 37 miles (55 kilometres) southwest of Tonopah, Nevada in an active area of lithium exploration and mining. The Silver Peak lithium mine, now owned by Albemarle Corporation, has extracted lithium minerals from brines continuously since 1966, approximately 10 miles (15 kilometres) to the north of the Property. Pure Energy Minerals Ltd. (“Pure Energy”, TSXV: PE), a Canadian-based exploration company, has recently published a technical report on an inferred lithium resource for its Clayton Valley South project located near the Silver Peak mine. Nevada Sunrise believes Neptune has the potential to host lithium-bearing brines in subterranean aquifers beneath the Clayton Valley floor.

“Tesla Motors Inc.’s plan to manufacture lithium ion batteries at its Gigafactory in Reno has brought a great deal of attention to the potential for lithium sources in Nevada,” said Warren Stanyer, President and CEO of Nevada Sunrise. “With growing world demand for lithium, we believe lithium brine assets can provide a strong complement to our Nevada gold exploration activities, and look forward to advancing Neptune.”

For an option to earn up to a 100% interest in Neptune, Nevada Sunrise has agreed to pay the following consideration to the vendors upon signing a definitive agreement (the “Agreement”) and on subsequent anniversaries of the Agreement:

  • On signing the Agreement:              200,000 common shares
  • 1st Anniversary:                               300,000 common shares
  • 2nd Anniversary                               500,000 common shares

Neptune consists of 39 unpatented association placer claims totaling approximately 3,120 acres (1,263 hectares). Under the terms of the letter agreement, Nevada Sunrise can specify which of the 39 claims it wishes to option from the vendors. A 1.5 mile (2.25 kilometre) area of interest applies to the Property.

The letter agreement is subject to certain conditions, including a 30-day due diligence period, approval by the Board of Directors of the Company, and acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange. Neptune is subject to a 3.0% gross overriding royalty (“GOR”). On the 3rd anniversary of the signing of a definitive agreement, Nevada Sunrise would have the right to purchase 1.0% of the GOR for US$1,000,000.

Historical reports obtained by Nevada Sunrise indicate that geologic formations and structures exist at Neptune that are similar to lithium-bearing brine deposit models present elsewhere in the Clayton Valley. Ground gravity and controlled source audio-frequency magnetotellurics (“CSAMT”) surveys were carried out over Neptune in 2011. CSAMT is a geophysical survey method that measures ground resistivity with considerable depth penetration and high lateral resolution suitable for the exploration of fractured bedrock aquifers. Gravity surveys can outline basin depth and controlling structures. Brine-rich aquifers are expected to exhibit low resistivities and be stratiform in geometry, and the conductive layer interpreted from the CSAMT in the Neptune basin fits these criteria. Drilling up to 3 vertical holes between 400 to 500 metres deep into the interpreted basin and analyzing any groundwater encountered is considered to be the next step for exploration at Neptune.

About Neptune and the Clayton Valley

Neptune is located in the southwest corner of the Clayton Valley flanked by the Silver Peak Mountains to the west, the Palmetto Mountains to the south, and the Clayton Ridge and Montezuma Mountains to the east. The Clayton Valley playa is characterized as an immature clastic salar, or salt flat. Other than the 2011 geophysical surveys carried out by a previous operator, historical exploration for lithium brines at Neptune is sparse. A large scale ground gravity survey by the United States Geological Service (“USGS”) in 1980 outlined two gravity lows in the south end of the Clayton Valley – the “South Central Low” underlies land controlled by Pure Energy, and the “Southwest Low” underlies Neptune. (Source: from R. M. Allender, Jr., “Technical Report on the Clayton Deep Lithium Brine Project, Clayton Valley, Esmeralda County, Nevada, USA”, 2011).

In 2013, the USGS released a paper describing the Clayton Valley’s potential to host lithium deposits based on the hypothesis that lithium is liberated by weathering of host rocks or derived from hydrothermal fluids from a variety of rock sources within a closed basin. The floor of Clayton Valley has an area of about 100 square kilometers and a catchment of about 1,400 square kilometres, and is the topographically lowest of at least five adjacent basins that are hydrologically linked by groundwater flow (Zampirro, 2004). It is the combined area of all five linked catchments that matters, making the effective area of the Clayton Valley lithium-brine system much larger than the footprint of the Clayton Valley proper (Source: from USGS Open File 13-1006, 2013).

“Cinematique” EP By No Audible Dialogue & Pardus Blacke

With its moody and melancholic opening chords, Cinematique‘s first track ‘A Sense Of…’ immediately grabs the attention of the listener with its warm swells and soaring strings that shift from left to right and create a sonic comfort blanket.

It’s the ideal way for the album to establish itself, giving a comforting sense of what might might be coming up next, and the track itself manages to not only work well as an introduction, but also carries its own narrative with it – one of journeying, travelling, heading towards a clear goal with a strong sense of determination. After those three short minutes are over, we’re moving straight into ‘Through Tragedy’, a brooding and bristling track that begins with its warm brass swells that provide a depth and a foundation for the higher melody to sit atop. There are shades of Clint Mansell to be found here, but with a stronger sense of hope as the track progresses, before finally fading out to a close in a way that feels like a heartbeat finally coming to an end. ‘Through The Fire’ keeps the drama going, with its lonely opening horn that is reminiscent of a distant  boat at sea. The strings begin to move in to place, swelling and soaring, like a flock of birds swirling in the skies and creating a kind of musical rendition of a starlings murmuration that shifts and changes before we get the chance for it to settle into any one specific shape.

“insistence and defiance continues to run through the album as though the concept is a very part of its DNA”

Yet again, the insistence and defiance continues to run through the album as though the concept is a very part of its DNA, with its shifting chords and notes that are often unexpected, suddenly changing direction at the moment you feel you have been led in another direction. The sense of defiance becomes solidified in the track that is so aptly titled – ‘Defiance’ stands tall and strong, almost monumentally in a way that tells all around ‘this is who I am, you need to pay attention now’. It’s a track that stands out on the album as being that bit more different, with its arpeggios and melodies that wander and swirl in different directions. The instrumentation feels free and able to be expressive, all the while being firmly anchored with its deep bass notes that create a depth, weight, and gravity to the song’s construction. ‘The World Below’ moves in an altogether more curious direction, with its synth choir voices that call and cry out with an almost religious feel. It’s as though, at times, we could have stumbled into a cathedral or monastery. There’s an intimate feeling here which again helps the track to stand out on the album as unique, while sitting firmly part of the rest of the music. Cinematique comes to its conclusion with ‘Now That You’re Here’, with its thin, wistful strings that play out their melancholy filled melody. As we find ourselves at the end of this journey, it’s possible to look back and reflect on where we have come from, what we have passed through, and consider where we have been brought to. As the final piano notes play, it’s a restful place of peace we have been led to, and the album comes to its end with a full sense of satisfaction.

ART 3 presents ALEXIS DE CHAUNAC A DANCE WITH LIFE AND DEATH, September 16 – October 25, 2015

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

ALEXIS DE CHAUNAC

A DANCE WITH LIFE AND DEATH

September 16 – October 25, 2015

 

Opening Reception:

Wednesday, September 16, 6 – 9 PM

 

ART 3 PROGRAM SERIES: ARTIST TALK

Raul Zamudio in conversation with Alexis de Chaunac

Saturday, September 26, 2015, 6 – 7 PM           

 

Brooklyn, NY, August 28, 2015 – ART 3 is proud to announce the exhibition of works on paper by Alexis de Chaunac, a rapidly rising American-Mexican-French artist. A Dance with Life and Death will be on view at ART 3 gallery, 109 Ingraham Street in Bushwick, Brooklyn, from September 16 to October 25, 2015, Wed-Sat 12-6 PM, Sun 1-6 PM. The opening will take place on Wednesday, September 16, from 6-9 PM.

 The works on exhibit in A Dance with Life and Death are set against a backdrop of intuitions and insights drawn from mythology, anthropology and medical sciences. Creating syncretic works derived from his own quest for identity (with sources in New York, Mexico and Paris), Alexis de Chaunac searches out artifacts from different cultures for archetypal links between the personal and the historical. An almost archival interest reveals itself not only in his collection of medical instruments and other science-based objects – alluding to birth – but in different histories he traces across media. In the three series of new works on view at ART 3, the artist excavates the 1911 edition of the French treatise on embryology and human anatomy (originally published in 1899); recreates the naturally mummified expressions of 1833 cholera victims from Guanajuato; and translates the architectural sublimity of Pre-Columbian statuary into festive images celebrating Mexico’s sense of the sacred.

 A Dance with Life and Death is haunted by a sense of being on the cusp: of the potential actuating into the real, then finally dissolving into quiescence. In Traité d’Anatomie Humaine, de Chaunac’s reworking of P. Poirier and A. Charpy’s 1911 treatise of the same name, one notes how their meticulously diagrammatic pages detailing the emergence of embryos into form transmogrifies into meditation on how the human face becomes recognizable within the womb, distinguishing itself from animalistic figurations. Composed mainly of autonomic responses internally related to the text’s scientific content, de Chaunac builds from the Traité as though its pages were bricks, respecting the intentionality of each century-old page while mimetically retracing the graduated complexity of cellular development each page describes. De Chaunac renews his interest in the origins of modern medicine, which produced new anatomic concepts that are still applied today in facial rejuvenating procedures and facelifts.

 De Chaunac’s Anthropology series delves into the idea of a lost civilization, such as that of the Maya who achieved their historic peak only to suddenly disappear. Following a particular intuition of traditional iconography and how it relates to archetypal patterns of experience, the Mexican holiday known as the Day of the Dead is just one element that plays in the foreground of these celebratory works. The artist deliberately renders death in terms of joyful atmospherics, underscoring how death gifts life with its defining end without which life would lose its earthly meaning.

 Similarly Polyptych – The Last Supper, de Chaunac’s reworking of the centuries-old Christian iconography, realizes something utterly contemporary that shades into the sacral. Portraying faces of the naturally mummified bodies of people who died in a cholera epidemic in 1833 in Mexican Guanajuato, Polyptych – The Last Supper shows the last breath on each visage, fixed in the final expression as the dying person approaches the threshold of oblivion for all eternity.

 A Dance with Life and Death is an inquest into origins, against which the mythical provides an essential backdrop. Inspired by the fact that science can now modify what a century ago it could only describe, Alexis de Chaunac went on to include in his exhibition at ART 3 a few mixed-media objects making a reference to a cabinet of curiosities and alluding to the material conditions that bring life into the world. They reference the timeliness of the instruments that accomplish this as well as the substrate of mortality that transcends knowledge. Ultimately, de Chaunac draws out the nascence of time as though it were a topological line, a tight wire act where life locks with death in an eternal dance.

 The exhibition’s three bodies of work:

 Traité d’Anatomie Humaine (2013-2015)

50 watercolors on original book pages from the 1911 edition of Le Traité d’Anatomie Humaine published by P. Poirirer and A. Charpy, Paris, France. The first edition of Le Traite d’Anatomie Humaine dates from 1899.

+ 6 mixed media objects.

 
Anthropology (2014-2015)

10 works on handmade paper and 1 on raw canvas: oil stick, acrylic, watercolor, ink

 

Polyptych – The Last Supper (2015)

13 oil stick works on paper

 

 

Alexis de Chaunac was born in New York, NY in 1991 and raised in Mexico City and Paris. He grew up surrounded by art and culture, drawing in the studio of his grandfather – renowned Mexican artist José Luis Cuevas. He then lived for ten years in Paris immersed in European culture only to return to the US to study at the Sarah Lawrence College, NY. Represented by ART 3 Gallery in Brooklyn, NY, this rapidly up-and-coming artist already had two museum solo exhibitions: at the Pinacoteca Diego Rivera in Xalapa (2015) and at the Museo Iconografico del Quijote in Guanajuato (2014), both in Mexico. His work was also featured in DRAW, the largest contemporary drawing exhibition at the Museo de la Ciudad de Mexico, Mexico in 2010 (curated by Erik Foss, Curse Mackey and Miguel Calderon). Alexis de Chaunac lives and works in New York City and Paris, France.

 

Raul Zamudio is a New York-based Independent Curator and writer. He has curated or co-curated over 100 exhibitions in the Americas, Asia, and Europe including: co-curator, Here is Where We Jump!; 2013 La Biennial, El Museo del Barrio, New York, NY; co-curator, City Without Walls, 2010 Liverpool Biennial; co-curator, Constellations: 2009 Beijing 798 Biennial; co-curator, Turn and Widen: 2008 Seoul Media Art Biennial; and co-curator, Poles, Apart, Poles Together, 2005 Venice Biennial. He has contributed to more than 70 art-related books and exhibition catalogs. More information: http://www.raulzamudio.blogspot.com/.

On Saturday, September 26, Raul Zamudio will be in conversation with Alexis de Chaunac at ART 3

Leading experts in the field made history as they laid the foundation for a new global workforce focused on Tourette and Tic Disorders research, presenting 185 scientific abstracts and 161 posters with important   discoveries and developments that have the potential to change our understanding of these conditions. A comprehensive library of research abstracts from the Congress is available at: www.eventmobi.com/tourette2015/.

“The 1st World Congress on Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorders saw the largest gathering and networking of clinicians, scientists and other experts in the history of these conditions,” said Kevin McNaught, Ph.D., Executive Vice President, Research and Medical Programs, Tourette Association of America. “Notably, discoveries and development in most—if not all—areas of study were presented and discussed among researchers from the 38 countries represented at the Congress. We hope that this global collaboration and momentum will grow in the years ahead as we seek to increase understanding and develop effective treatments for Tourette and related conditions.”

Research topics ranged from investigations of the therapeutic use of cannabis to control Tourette and Tic Disorder symptoms, to analysis and new data exploring a variety of deep brain stimulation therapies, to new developments in Tourette Syndrome genetics and a host of other topics.

“The Congress allowed for a meaningful and dynamic discourse on novel treatments and therapies that will pave the way for ideas and strategies for years to come,” said Marc Scullin, M.A., Tourette Association of America, one of the Congress organizers.

Treatment options in the digital age were among the topics explored at the Congress, including those discussed by Dr. Douglas Woods, psychologist at Texas A&M University and co-chair of the Tourette Association of America Medical Advisory Board. Dr. Woods presented findings from clinical trials designed to improve existing Comprehensive Behavioral Intervention for Tics (CBIT) options through TicHelper, an innovative computer program that empowers children and adults to recognize and manage their tics.

Dr. Mort Doran, who was anonymously profiled by Dr. Oliver Sacks in his book An Anthropologist on Mars, was a riveting keynote speaker, and the dance company Ballet Rambert performed Awakenings, in honor of Dr. Sacks’ best-selling novel of the same name.

John Walkup, M.D. Professor of Psychiatry, the Vice Chair of Psychiatry, and Director of the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Weill Cornell Medical College and New York-Presbyterian Hospital, delivered the first Dr. Oliver Sacks Lecture, which was a state of the art presentation on current, and likely future, treatments for Tourette and related disorders.

Other presenters included Jess Thom, writer, artist and “part-time superhero,” who gave a voice to the individuals and families affected by Tourette as she spoke about her experience living with the disorder.

World Congress awards included the Dr. Oliver Sacks Award for Excellence in Tourette and Tic Disorders, presented to Jonathan W. Mink, M.D., PH.D., Vice Chair of the Department of Neurology at the University of Rochester Medical Center. The Professor Mary Robertson Award for Research Contribution was presented to Christos Ganos, M.D., from University College London Institute of Neurology.

Attendees also learned about upcoming research projects funded by the Tourette Association Research Grants and Fellowships Program. Since the Grants and Fellowships Program was formed in 1984, the Association has awarded over $21 million to 250 scientists working in basic scientific and clinical TS research. Projects funded have provided crucial insights into many areas of the disorder and encouraged investigators to become or to remain involved in pursuing Tourette research.

As a result of the World Congress, the Tourette community now has public access to the largest and most comprehensive compilation of TS research in the world, and is poised to move forward toward better clinical, psychological and cultural understanding of this commonly under-diagnosed neurodevelopmental disorder.

The first Global Advocacy Summit held on June 24, provided patient advocacy and support organizations from around the world an opportunity to discuss strategies for helping those affected by Tourette and Tic Disorders. The day-long workshop focused on quality-of-life issues including: the global impact, awareness and understanding of Tourette and Tic Disorders; supporting families; using technology creatively; advocating for children in schools and for adults in the workplace and society; and global support and collaborations.

About Tourette and Tic Disorders

Tourette is part of a spectrum of hereditary, childhood-onset, neurodevelopmental conditions referred to as Tic Disorders. These conditions affect both children and adults, causing them to make sudden, uncontrollable movements and/or sounds called tics (e.g. head bobbing, arm jerking, shoulder shrugging and grunting). Non-tic features, such as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and learning difficulties, often develop in affected individuals.  Symptoms in Tic Disorders can range from mild to severe and, in some cases, can be self-injurious, debilitating and markedly reduce quality of life. While some treatments are available for people with Tourette and other Tic Disorders, approaches to care are inconsistent, medications are often ineffective and there is no cure. Recent studies show that up to 1 in 100 school-aged children in the U.S. have Tourette Syndrome or other Tic Disorders.

About the Tourette Association of America

Founded in 1972, the Tourette Association of America is dedicated to making life better for all individuals affected by Tourette and Tic Disorders. The only nationwide organization serving this community, the Association works to raise awareness, fund research and provide on-going support.  The Association directs a network of 32 Chapters and more than 80 support groups across the country.  For more information on Tourette and Tic Disorders, call 1-888-4-TOURET, visit www.tourette.org, on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.        

SOFTRAX Partners with HA&W, LLP to Get Businesses Ready for ASC 606 Revenue Standards

Free Joint Webcast Examines Implications and Challenges of New Revenue Recognition Guidance Released by FASB

CANTON, Mass. – August 27, 2015 – Enterprise revenue recognition specialists SOFTRAX invite business finance and compliance professionals to join its upcoming webcast, “ASC 606 – Preparing for the New Revenue Standards”, featuring experts from Atlanta-based tax, audit, and business advisory firm HA&W, LLP.

Released last year, FASB’s ASC 606 standard streamlines existing revenue recognition for U.S. companies and brings U.S. GAAP into closer alignment with international accounting rules. However, these new regulations will also require many organizations to change the way they recognize and report their revenues, impacting processes, systems, and resources. And even with recent delays in effective date, businesses only have a limited — and rapidly closing – window in which to prepare for the necessary changeover.

This free webcast looks at FASB’s new revenue rules and their implications for U.S. companies, as well as how businesses can help their financial systems get ready for the transition. The event will be presented by Ramon Scheffer (Director of Financial Reporting Advisory Services, HA&W) and Jagruti Solanki (Audit Manager, HA&W).

The live webcast will take place on Thursday, September 17, 2015 from 2:00 – 3:00 PM EDT / 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM PDT. More information can be found on the webinar registration page.

“ASC 606 – Preparing for the New Revenue Standards” is designed for managers and executives seeking a deeper understanding of ASC 606 as their organizations make plans to adopt this new standard. Complete attendance of this webcast qualifies registrants for one CPE credit. Contact us at info@softrax.com for more information.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Entytle to share how customers are seeing a 50% increase in revenue from existing customers in as little as 3 months.

San Francisco, CA, August 27, 2015 Entytle will be at Dreamforce September 15-18, 2015 in San Francisco, CA to demo their Entytle Automation System, a cloud-based solution that proactively analyzes existing customer data and behavior to uncover just the right customer opportunity at just the right time.  Entytle’s SaaS will enable companies to anticipate their customers’ needs and pre-empt service-related issues.

With thousands of customers and hundreds of products, most sales organizations do not have the time or tools to pinpoint the timing of aftermarket revenue opportunities with existing customers.  There is simply no easy way to analyze customer data at just the right time, for just the right customers.  Yet according to an article in Forbes,1 there are plenty of reasons to make that extra effort:

  • A 5% increase in customer retention can result in 75% greater profitability.
  • It costs five times more to acquire new customers than to retain existing customers.
  • Aftermarket products and services typically have higher profitability than the original equipment, thereby boosting bottom lines of companies that do this well.
  • Predictive and proactive selling will prevent customer downtime.

Entytle invites Sales and Aftermarket Services Executives from B2B manufacturers to booth W114 at Dreamforce to discuss the installed base revenue opportunity.  Key members of the Entytle team will be on-site starting on Tuesday, September 15th at 12:00 p.m. to share their findings regarding aftermarket services as an untapped source of revenue for many B2B suppliers, especially manufacturers. 

Dreamforce is the largest software conference on the planet.  “Whether you’re a company of five or a Fortune 500, you’re going to see a boom in success by coming to Dreamforce.”
