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).

John R. Kerr, P. Eng., is the Company’s designated Qualified Person for this news release within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101 and has reviewed and approved the technical information contained in this news release.

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.

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.

Anark Enables Enterprise to Supplier Collaboration

Anark Enables Enterprise to Supplier Collaboration within 3D
PDF MBE documents with Release of Anark Core Server 4.4

Anark Core 4.4 enables adhoc and planned “conversations” using the free Adobe Reader

Boulder, CO – August 26, 2015: Anark Corporation, leading provider of Model Based Enterprise (MBE) and Visual Communication software solutions, announced today that it has extended its industry leading 3D PDF Technical Data Package (TDP) and 3D PDF Model Based Enterprise (MBE) publishing capabilities to include managed Enterprise to Supplier Collaboration (conversations) on the back of the PDF open standard and the free Adobe Reader.

As further confirmation that Anark Corporation is the leader in the deployment of true production-quality 3D MBD (Model Based Definition) data to the downstream consumers of that data, Anark has developed a unique, innovative and powerful collaboration backbone enabling Enterprises to easily communicate and collaborate with their vast and varied manufacturing and supplier networks.

One of the new Anark Core Server 4.4 capabilities extends the “2D and 3D Markup and Commenting” capabilities available within the free Adobe Reader (already installed on 98% of the world’s computers) with Anark Core Server’s new automated ability to extract, collate and store markups and comments within the enterprise’s existing PLM or ERP data repositories.

Anark can then organize and distribute the PDF comments in many different but important ways unique to each enterprise’s specific needs and processes, such as per contract, per document, per supplier, per submission timestamp etc. Those comments and their associated meta-data are retrievable and viewable by the appropriate recipients of those markups and comments.

“Anark has created a powerful but extremely flexible collaboration capability which allows anyone in the Enterprise to launch a trackable, auditable, archive-able and retrievable “conversation” with any organization and/or person in the extended manufacturing and supplier network,” said Stephen Collins, President and CEO of Anark Corporation.

“Other collaboration solutions provided by most PLM and ERP Software Companies, manufacturers and suppliers in the extended manufacturing network require special access through PLM or ERP user accounts, and must purchase proprietary (and expensive) 3D viewing and collaboration software provided by that PLM or ERP Software Company,” Collins continued.

Anark has worked closely and confidentially with one of their major Aerospace and Defense Customers (and in particular with their Strategic Leaders in Aerospace for Engineering Operations) to define and refine the new Anark Core Server 4.4 Enterprise to Supplier Collaboration capabilities.

“With our deployment, we have been able to assemble and distribute complete multi-document PDF TDPs in accordance with MIL-STD-31000 3D TDP and DOD CDRL requirements including a XML based PLCS (STEP AP239) manifest which completely defines the content of the PDF TDP and allows for automated disassembly and intelligent document distribution,” said one of the company’s Strategic Leaders for Aerospace Engineering Operations.

Specific to the new Anark Core Server 4.4 capabilities are:

  • Advanced PDF TDP Management–allowing for automated PLM and ERP workflow driven assembly and disassembly of multi-document PDF TDPs and their associated human-readable and machine readable manifests (aka the TDP table of contents and attached document types).
  • Dynamic Data Markings for Release Control–allowing for the automatic application (and removal) of release status, authority, distribution notices and watermarks to PDF documents that have already been published and approved in a previous work flow step.
  • Supply Chain Management Collaboration–allowing for the automatic extraction, collation and storage of comment and mark-up data that was applied to PDFs (2D or 3D), to manage supply chain communications.
  • Paginated Table Rendition–allowing for tables of data (such as EBOM, MBOM, Procurement lists & tables of associated engineering, manufacturing and supplier metadata) of arbitrary length to be formatted and rendered as multiple PDF pages (together with the 3D PDF data) using standard Adobe PDF “Acroform” templates.

These new Anark Core Server 4.4 capabilities are perfect for automating workflows which in the past were highly manual, multi-discipline, time consuming and pen- and paper-based.

For example this typical supplier bid process can now be easily and cost effectively automated and deployed:

  1. The OEM’s Engineering department releases their 2D and 3D PDF Engineering document(s) to Supplier Procurement.
  2. Procurement then assembles additional supplier specific documents, standards and other contract documents to create a complete PDF TDP bid package. Each 2D and 3D PDF document within the PDF TDP is then automatically watermarked as “For Preliminary-Collaboration” using Anark Core Server.
  3. Procurement provides the unique PDF bid packages to each supplier in the bidding process through their secure data distribution portal, or through encrypted email.
  4. Each supplier then disassembles their unique 3D PDF bid documents and distributes them to the domain experts in their respective departments (e.g. manufacturing, tooling, QA, legal etc.)
  5. Each of the supplier’s domain experts “Mark-up and Comment” on their specific TDP PDF documents using the free Adobe Reader. For example manufacturing might identify areas for clarification or request for Engineering changes to the 3D PDF Engineering documents while legal requests contract clarification or language changes.
  6. These marked-up TDP bid documents are then sent back to the OEM’s Procurement department.
  7. Back at the OEM’s Procurement department, the mark-ups and comments are automatically extracted, collated, stored and distributed to the appropriate organizations within the Enterprise using Anark Core Server.
  8. Only those bid documents which have changed, are resubmitted to Procurement and a new TDP bid package is reassembled. All “For Preliminary-Collaboration” watermarks on all PDF documents (old and new) are replaced with “For Final Bid” using Anark Core Server.
  9. Anark Core Server may be integrated with all popular PLM and SCM software systems, for workflow-driven engineering release publishing and supply chain collaboration.
