Cardiol Therapeutics is a clinical-stage life sciences company based out of Oakville, Ontario, that is focused on the research and clinical development of cannabidiol as an anti-fibrotic and anti-inflammatory therapy for the treatment of cardiovascular disease. Cardiol's lead product candidate is CardiolRx™, a pharmaceutically produced oral cannabidiol formulation that is being clinically developed for use in cardiovascular medicine. CardiolRx™ is currently being evaluated in a Phase II/III multi-national, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study (the LANCER trial). LANCER is designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of CardiolRx™ as a cardioprotective therapy to reduce major cardiovascular and respiratory events in patients hospitalized with COVID-19 who have a prior history of, or risk factors for, CVD, and to investigate the influence CardiolRx™ has on key biomarkers associated with heart disease. Cardiol has also received IND authorization from the FDA to conduct clinical studies to evaluate the efficacy and safety of CardiolRx™ in two orphan drug indications: (i) a Phase II multi-national, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in acute myocarditis, an important cause of acute and fulminant heart failure in young adults and the leading cause of sudden cardiac death in people less than 35 years of age; and (ii) a Phase II multicenter open-label pilot study in recurrent pericarditis (inflammation of the pericardium), which is associated with symptoms including debilitating chest pain, shortness of breath, and fatigue, and results in physical limitations, reduced quality of life, emergency department visits, and hospitalizations. Additionally, Cardiol is developing a subcutaneous formulation of CardiolRx™ for the treatment of fibrosis and inflammation associated with the development and progression of heart failure - a leading cause of death and hospitalization in the developed world, with associated healthcare costs in the U.S. exceeding $30 billion annually.
Advance Lithium is a junior exploration company that is focused on exploring and acquiring mineral properties that contain lithium, precious metals and fertilizer minerals. The company acquired a 100% interest in the Tabasquena silver mine in Zacatecas, Mexico in 2017, and the Venaditas project, also in Zacatecas state, in April 2018. The company also holds a 10.85% interest in strategic claims in the Liranda Corridor in Kenya, East Africa. The remaining 89.15% of the Kakamega project is held by Shanta Gold Limited (project previously owned by Barrick Gold Corporation). In March, 2021 Advance Gold acquired 13 salars in central Mexico containing potassium, boron and lithium, enabling it to move into agricultural minerals and the exciting lithium space. Advance Lithium also has 13 lithium-potassium-boron salary and a R&D lab in Mexico. Advance Lithium filed a patent in October 2021 for an extraction method in order to process lithium in an environmentally-friendly way. The new method the company filed a patent for uses water and an electrical process to obtain a solution of lithium and potassium, which can be done several times in a row in order to produce a high-grade concentrate, which would also be useful in extracting boron. Advance Lithium is also engaged in developing, building and operating lithium mines and compound processing facilities. The company develops a process to extract lithium from clay and sand without brine evaporation. Advance Lithium also operates 13 lithium salars, including La Doncella, Maxy, Hernandez, El Cristalillo, Las Casas, Salitral, Saldivar, Agrito, La Prieta, Chapala, El Perdido, El Barril and Colorada.

Headquartered out of Vancouver, BC Queensland Gold Hills is mineral exploration and development company focused on gold discoveries in the historic mining districts of Queensland Australia. At present, the company is advancing the drill ready Big Hills Gold Project in South East Queensland, Australia. The Big Hill Gold Project covers the historic mines of Big Hill, Queenslander, Monte Cristo and Sultan & Taylor of the Talgai Goldfields. This is one of eight historical Goldfields in the broader Warwick-Texas District active in the late 19th century, which include Canal Creek, Thanes Creek, Leyburn, Palgrave, Pikedale, Lucky Valley and MacDonald Goldfields. These supported both alluvial and reef mining, with the Queenslander Mine distinguishing itself as the first lode gold mine in the state of Queensland with a total production of 4.1Koz of gold at an average grade of 50g/t with some early crushings reported up to 4000g/t. The current exploration model for the Big Hill project is a high grade, shear hosted, orogenic. This is typically associated with continental margin accretionary orogens that usually occurs in terranes dominated by turbiditic (meta- sedimentary) rocks and are commonly associated with second- and third-order faults and shear zones resulting in moderately to steeply plunging, tabular to pipe-like orebodies. Historical mining activity records show that the vein system has the ability to host significant high-grade mineralization along with complex stranded structural architectures that are capable of creating large mineralised shoots. The vein systems remain open at depth below the historical workings as well as along strike and remain untested by drilling.
Previously known as Helio Resource Corp., Winshear Gold Corp. is a Canadian based junior gold exploration company focused on its highly prospective Gaban Gold Project located in the Puno Orogenic Gold Belt in southeastern Peru. The company completed its acquisition of the Gaban Gold and Tinka I.O.C.G. projects in Peru from Palamina Corp. in 2019. Situated in the Puno Orogenic Gold Belt in southeastern Peru, the Gaban Gold project is roughly 750 kilometers southeast of Lima. During field campaigns between 2019 and 2021, Winshear outlined a gold anomaly that measured 2.2 by 1 kilometers. Once permits have been received, the company plans to drill the first ever holes at Gaban sometime in 2022. Winshear is also pursuing its rights to the SMP Gold Project in Tanzania where it has been active in exploring and developing the SMP Gold project since 2006. In 2017, however, the Tanzanian government changed the Mining Act where the Retention License Act, where the SMP project sat under, was abolished. This has positioned Winshear to receive C$124.8 million in damages which proceedings towards a tribunal decision will begin in the first half of 2023.
