Winston Gold Signs LOI to Acquire Advanced Stage, High-Grade Gold Project

The project hosts gold-bearing high-angle fissure veins and replacement zones within surrounding carbonate rocks. According to historic records, about US$1.9 million was spent on previous exploration and development between 1978 and 2004. This included 500 ft. of decline and 700 ft. of drifts and crosscuts and two bulk samples.

There are no mineral resource or reserve estimates on the property, however, in September 2000, about 500 tons of mineralized material was mined as bulk samples by predecessor companies during underground development and trial mining.

The samples were submitted to the ASARCO smelter, East Helena, Montana and according to settlement records the two bulk samples contained 928 ounces of gold recovered from:

  • 304 tons averaging .37 ounces per ton (12.68 grams per tonne)
  • 189 tons averaging 2.71 ounces per ton (92.91 grams per tonne)

“Based on historic work, we believe there is excellent potential for additional high grade mineralization, at depth and along strike as well as in parallel structures,” commented Murray Nye, CEO and Director of Winston Gold Mining. “Further systematic exploration and development work is warranted.”

The surface land position at the Golden Jubilee property is sufficient to support mining operations including potential tailings storage and waste disposal areas. The Gunsinger Group previously acquired all necessary permits and performed additional test mining in 2014.

In addition to bulk sampling test mining, at least thirty-two exploration drill holes, including 27 reverse-circulation holes were drilled on the Golden Jubilee claims by Newmont in 1988. Another five core holes were drilled by the Montana Mineral Research Center in 1977. These drill holes confirmed that diamond and percussion drilling are effective measures to test geological continuity of the mineralization. In these types of high-grade vein systems bulk sampling and trial mining are typically the best way to determining grade distribution.

As reported in the press release dated October 27th, 2016, the Company has entered into a non-binding letter agreement with The Gunsinger Group, Inc. (“Gunsinger”). The agreement stipulates that Gunsinger intends to assign to Winston all rights related to 22 unpatented mining claims hosting the Golden Jubilee Property, along with all equipment and assets situated on or used in connection with the exploration of such mining claims.  In consideration, Winston intends to pay US$500,000 and distribute 11,000,000 common shares in the capital of the Company to Gunsinger.

Completion of the Assignment is subject to the satisfaction of a number of conditions, including the completion of due diligence by Winston on the Golden Jubilee Property, obtaining all required regulatory approvals, and Gunsinger obtaining written consent from the registered owner of the Golden Jubilee Property to assign all beneficial ownership to the Company in accordance with an underlying mining lease and option agreement over the Golden Jubilee Property.

About Winston Gold Mining Corp.

Winston Gold is a natural resource exploration and development company focused on advancing high-grade, low cost mining opportunities into production. Towards that end, the Corporation has acquired two under-explored and under-exploited gold/silver mining opportunities, being the Winston Gold project near Helena, Montana, and the Gold Ridge project, near Willcox, Arizona. Additional information about the Company can be found on the SEDAR website at

Legalization of Cannabis Pending in Nine States

The states where recreational cannabis will be on the ballot are California, Arizona, Nevada, Maine and Massachusetts, while North Dakota, Arkansas, Montana and Florida are considering medical marijuana legalization. California in particular is an interest to investors. According to Arcview Group, a company that links investors with cannabis companies, has shown the market for both recreational and medicinal marijuana is expected to reach a value of $22 billion by 2020 from the $7 billion it is today, if California says yes.

California already has the most comprehensive medical marijuana law in the country, which includes edibles, and therefore it is not surprising some of the most creative cannabis infused edibles were originated in the western state. Finore Mining Inc. (OTC: FNREF) just announced late yesterday an agreement for the acquisition of KushTown USA LLC, a leading California Marijuana Beverage Company. Kushtown USA for example is specializing in medicated water, soda, hot sauce and barbecue sauce products infused with cannabis. The company offers 20 different varieties of medicated sodas on its website. The sodas and drinks come in varieties of carbonated and non-carbonated beverages, with flavors like Cherry Cola, lemonade, fruit punch, and lemon lime, all infused with a medical marijuana THC oil tincture. For more information about the California based company, please visit and check out

The creator of Kushtown USA, Peter Moret, has an interesting story behind the company. In early 1999, Moret’s mother became ill from breast cancer. In addition to the chemotherapy treatments, Moret research additional possible treatments for dealing with the aches and pains from the cancer. After researching cannabis’s medical effects, he created a Medical Marijuana tincture, called it Kushtown tincture, and gave his mother a single serving of the tincture in tea, which she then started drinking regularly. The cannabis infused teas not only helped in dealing with the aches and pains from cancer, but also increased her appetite and activity. The company’s goal today is to create and innovate delicious, effective, and cutting edge products that establish the company as a leader amongst edible companies.  

Cannabics Pharmaceuticals Inc. (OTC: CNBX) recently announced the start of a clinical study in Israel for cancer patients utilizing Cannabics’ SR Capsules. This is one of the world’s first clinical studies specifically examining the effect of cannabis utilizing a medically standardized edible delivery system. The company describes itself as a licensed R&D based in Israel dedicated to the development of palliative and personalized Anti-Cancer treatments harnessing the versatile therapeutic values of cannabinoids to create tailored therapies for cancer patients. Their integrated technology has created a successful medically standardized delivery system offering patients natural, reliable and safe therapy.

Terra Tech Corp (OTCQX: TRTC) is a cannabis-focused agriculture company which operates through two segments: Hydroponic Produce and Cannabis Products. Terra Tech integrates the natural world with technology to create sustainable solutions for medical cannabis production, extraction and distribution, plant science research and development, food production and Closed Environment Agriculture. The company has recently announced that its subsidiary, Edible Garden, a retail seller of fresh hydroponic produce, herbs, and floral products, has started shipping its line of 4-inch potted living herbs to private American reginal supermarket chain, Wegmans Food Markets Inc.

Medical Marijuana Inc. (OTC: MJNA) through its subsidiaries and investment holdings, offers a portfolio of products, services, technology and businesses for the medical marijuana and industrial hemp markets. The company has announced that its portfolio company AXIM Biotechnologies, Inc. has secured private funding to continue its pharmaceutical clinical trials program in cannabinoid research and development for multiple indications. This is a perfect example of how varied the use for medical cannabis may be, AXIM’s future plans for future cannabinoid-based clinical development include: Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease/dementia, ADHD, PTSD, autism, restless leg syndrome, glaucoma and more.

United Cannabis Corp. (OTCQB: CNAB) has announced that its joint venture with Jamaica-based Cannabis Research & Development, will commence a trial program in partnership with the Rastafari Studies Centre for Cannabis Research, University of West Indies, Mona, to create protocols for the growth of Ital Standards that in turn be used as a monitor for the processing, cultivation and consumption of marijuana. The Joint Venture’s original task will be to take note and confirm the genetics of the Centre’s preliminary plantings, and to provide an outlook in the development of suitable standards and training approaches for the future.

“Thanks to the increased popularity of alternative investments in today’s economy,” says Nevtan Akcora, Co-Founder and President of American Bullion, “individuals are more open to diversify their investments, using tangible assets such as gold, silver and Gold IRAs, which have been their top choice in recent years.”

This growing interest in alternative investments in today’s youths have shown in American Bullion’s over 1,100 scholarship applicants. Nevtan Akcora predicts this current number will grow to another hundred or so by the 31st.

“So far, we’re around 1,100. Should be another hundred or so by the 31st,” says Akcora.

The 2016 American Bullion scholarship, which opened January 31, 2016, is currently accepting full-time undergraduate students until the deadline on October 31.

“We as American Bullion,” says Akcora, “want millennials to understand the importance of investing, saving, and planning for the future.

Grilling Fans Are Stoked About the New Chimney of Insanity

DENVER, Oct. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — In less than twenty-four hours, grilling enthusiasts spent over $15,000 on BBQ Dragon’s Indiegogo campaign for its unique new charcoal chimney, the “Chimney of Insanity,” surpassing the company’s 30-day goal in just one day. Grilling and outdoor cooking has always been one of the most popular family activities, and an iconic part of American culture, but starting charcoal for cooking is not always the most enjoyable, or easy, part of grilling and barbecue. The innovative Chimney of Insanity promises to make starting charcoal faster, easier, and even fun. The company is offering deeply discounted pricing to introduce their chimney on Indiegogo, and as the campaign continues for 30 days, there is still an opportunity for barbecue lovers to buy one.

Current versions of charcoal chimneys require newspaper to be stuffed into the bottom end of the chimney, which is then flipped over and filled with charcoal. This closed-off design makes it difficult to add more paper if charcoal does not ignite on the first attempt. The Chimney of Insanity has a unique 90-degree intake vent built into the side of the chimney so additional paper and fire starters can be added at any time without lifting it up.

BBQ Dragon’s new charcoal Chimney of Insanity is designed to be easier to use, faster, and more versatile than old-style chimneys. But this is not where BBQ Dragon stopped with the crafting of the Chimney of Insanity, because a chimney cannot be insane unless it can be transformed into a charcoal blast furnace. The intake vent on the side of the Chimney of Insanity is perfectly fitted for attaching the BBQ Dragon grill fan. The side hole allows grillers to aim the fan or even just blow into the side, dramatically increasing oxygen flow, speeding ignition, and getting charcoal ready to cook in minutes, up to four times faster than other charcoal chimneys.

The Chimney of insanity works as a high-temperature, forced-air cooking stove, too. Grill steaks at temperatures of 1500 to 2000 degrees with just a small amount of charcoal by placing a cooking grate over the top of the chimney. By adjusting the speed of the BBQ Dragon, steaks can be seared on each side in less than a minute.

Bruce Prior, the company’s co-founder, explains, “We love grilling ourselves, which is why we got into this business, but it seems like most of the grilling tools that are available to consumers today haven’t seen the kind of innovation and contemporary design that is exploding in other fields of product development.”

The Chimney of Insanity Indiegogo campaign is now live and runs through November 27th. To be one of the early bird purchasers of the Chimney of Insanity, visit:

About BBQ Dragon

Grilling and barbecuing fanatics, and brothers, Bruce and George Prior, created the BBQ Dragon Grill Fan after an unfortunate experience grilling in the rain while attempting to stoke charcoal with a hairdryer. An engineer and businessman by trade the brothers combined their expertise in mechanical and electronic innovation and invention to supercharge their hairdryer idea. After twenty prototypes, hundreds of motor, fan, and battery combinations, and dozens of design variations, the BBQ Dragon became a reality.

POLARIS INVESTOR ALERT: Hagens Berman Alerts Polaris Investors to Expanded Class Period and Reminds Them of November 15, 2016 Lead Plaintiff Deadline

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 28, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP alerts investors in Polaris Industries Inc. (NYSE:PII) to an expanded class period of February 20, 2015 through September 11, 2016 and to the Lead Plaintiff deadline of November 15, 2016 in the securities class action lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota.

If you purchased or otherwise acquired securities of PII between February 20, 2015 and September 11, 2016 and suffered losses contact Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP.  For more information visit:

or contact Reed Kathrein, who is leading the firm’s investigation, by calling 510-725-3000 or emailing

Between July 2015 and April 2016, Polaris announced four recalls for numerous of its off-road vehicles due to “thermal-related incidents” such as fires.  In July 2016, Polaris issued a stop-ride/stop-sale advisory pending the recall of another vehicle, again citing fire hazards.

Throughout the recall announcements, Polaris on numerous occasions disclosed fiscal year 2016 net income guidance of $6.00 per share.

On September 12, 2016, less than two months after Polaris last provided its $6.00 per share earnings guidance, the Company abruptly slashed guidance to $3.30 – $3.80 per share, citing vehicle fire hazards as the reason for reduced earnings. In response, Polaris stock fell approximately 5% to close at $76.79 on September 12th and continued to decline throughout the week.

On October 25, 2016, Polaris narrowed guidance to $3.40 – $3.60 per share, citing lower sales expectations. In response, the price of Polaris shares fell over 3% during intra-day trading.

SEC filings show that Polaris’ CFO and the President of Polaris’ Off-Road Vehicles together sold over $2.7 million of Company stock between January and August 2016.

“Defendants apparently were aware of the fire hazards associated with certain of Polaris’ vehicles for over a year,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.  “We’re looking at why Defendants waited so long to reduce earnings guidance.”

Whistleblowers: Persons with non-public information regarding Polaris Industries should consider their options to help in the investigation or take advantage of the SEC Whistleblower program. Under the new SEC whistleblower program, whistleblowers who provide original information may receive rewards totaling up to 30 percent of any successful recovery made by the SEC.
