Record gold sales in the first quarter of 2018 high grade intercepts in the Guiro mine.

QUÉBEC CITY, April 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Komet Resources Inc. is delighted to have generated record gold sales of CA$1,354,000 in the first quarter of 2018, with a production cash cost of CA$1,038,000 for 27.5 kilos of gold from the Guiro mine located in Burkina Faso. This occurs after only two quarters of operation since the active start of the optimized process. The modernization of the Guiro plant was completed at the end of the second quarter 2017, with, among other things, the installation of an Acacia intensive leaching reactor, the establishment of an in-series triple gravity concentrator system, the refurbishment of a larger capacity ball mill with a larger capacity and the installation of a hydrocyclone to operate in closed circuit mode.

Recent Development at the Guiro Mine

The company has recently obtained the results of eight diamond drill holes conducted as part of the ongoing resource development of the Guiro mine in Burkina Faso (see table below). These include the following intersections: 0.68 m grading 180.50 g/t Au in borehole Gu2017dd05, 1.24 m grading 10.36 g/t Au in borehole Gu2017dd03 and 1.68 m grading 17.11 g/t Au in borehole Gu2017dd06. Gu2017dd04 borehole also intercepted mineralization below the 4-east level in the mine, 12.5 meters west to the previously known Gu2015dd16 hole of 4.3 m grading 9.2 g/t. The results of this survey confirm the continuity of the vein as defined in the published NI43-101 resource calculation. Mining planning will be in this way better defined. The experience in the Guiro mine allows us to give an influence of 12.5 meters on both sides of a hole. Future development in this area then allows us to plan more than 7,100 t at 7.79 g/t Au undiluted. The vein is still open at least toward the west and at depth.

Furthermore, the Gu2017dd06 borehole located between two previously mined stopes on level 2, confirms a hitherto unknown continuity due to inaccessibility. This will allow us to mine more than 1000 t at 17.11 g/t Au undiluted. This excellent result will be followed by verification of the upper vertical continuity of level 2 in this new mineralized horizon.

These results follow those on the west development of the mine, announced in the January 29, 2018, press release.

Ongoing development

Komet’s team is pursuing development westward at level 3 to reach the western gold ore shoot and aims in particular to join, within 30 m, the strike of the previously announced Gu2015dd35 drill intersection (1.4 m at 31 g/t Au). The development to the east at level 4 is also underway to complete the 25 meters required to reach the mineralization mentioned above. At the junction of level 3, a total of 35 m out of the planned 70m north development is underway and will allow reaching a mineralized zone parallel to the Guiro vein, mentioned in historical works, and allow positioning of the new pneumatic drill (Bazooka) for exploration at depth of the Guiro vein.

Finally, at the main shaft intersection at level 4, the development of a gallery is in progress in order to reach the parallel vein named “Guiro Sud” which gave results by core drilling such as 57 cm at 10.62 g/t Au and 52 cm at 8.64 g/t Au. See the May 25, 2017, press release for more information.

Mr André Gagné, president and CEO stated: “The development of the Guiro mine, as well as the nearby discoveries, confirm the excellent gold potential within our reach. In addition, the good gold sales results of the first quarter confirm the company’s vision: ‘Discovering by producing!’

The samples assays reported were obtained by standard 30 grams fire-assaying-AA finish or gravimetric finish at the Company’s mine site laboratory and by plating on 50 g aliquots with atomic absorption (ppm for gold) at BIGGS Global in Burkina Faso. Sampling and supervision of the works were carried out on the site by qualified technicians. Quality assurance and quality control program and interpretation of results are done by qualified geologists according to a 43-101 compliant QA / QC program and industry best practices, including the introduction of samples reference, sterile samples and duplicates for each batch of 20 samples analyzed.

OmniComm Systems Signs First TrialMaster® Customer in China

Shanghai HEP Pharma Selects TrialMaster EDC to Conduct Hepatitis B Study

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., April 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Shanghai HEP Pharma Co. LTD, a research and development company focused on developing innovative drugs for hepatitis B, has signed a new agreement with OmniComm Systems, Inc. (OTCQX:OMCM), a leading global provider of clinical data management technology. Under the agreement, Shanghai HEP Pharma will use OmniComm’s TrialMaster EDC technology for a randomized Phase II/Phase III hepatitis B study.

The agreement represents OmniComm’s first TrialMaster deal in China. More than two years ago, OmniComm established a goal of developing a presence in the Chinese market, and to-date the company’s performance in that sector has met expectations. The expanded footprint in the Asia-Pacific region includes OmniComm’s first contract for TrialMaster® in Japan, along with 13 TrialOne® agreements in China.                                                      

As a system that is compliant with global industry standards, TrialMaster allows user organizations to ensure the quality and integrity of the data collected and managed during the entire study. TrialMaster also enables users to comply with the Chinese FDA’s new regulation and approval process for new drug development in China. TrialMaster’s ability to facilitate users’ compliance with CFDA’s regulations aimed at harmonizing local practices to global standards was also a key factor.

“From our research and development pipeline, we have developed this hepatitis B drug from the concept stage,” said Dr. Hongli Liu, CEO of Shanghai HEP Pharma. “This hepatitis B drug is a critical product for us, and we wanted to select a high quality and global standard EDC system to ensure our study is well managed. We had excellent experience using OmniComm’s Phase I system, Promasys®, which naturally led to TrialMaster, OmniComm’s Phase II/III EDC system. We look forward to working with OmniComm’s team on study build and are confident to hit First Patient In date on time.”

“We are very excited about our first deployment of TrialMaster in China, and it is with a highly innovative biotechnology company,” said Kuno van der Post, Ph.D., chief commercial officer, OmniComm Systems. “We are delighted that we were selected in a highly competitive evaluation.”

Most recently, Doug held a variety of leadership roles at Barclays, where he ran the firm’s European Equities client strategy, European Corporate Access sales team and was the Global COO for Equity Research. Doug’s deep expertise in sell-side and buy-side capital markets operational requirements and understanding of the recently implemented MiFID II regulatory environment will be instrumental in helping shape the future for Tier1.

“I am ecstatic to welcome Doug Christensen to Tier1,” said Mark Notten, Tier1 Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer. “Doug comes to us with invaluable on-the-ground capital markets experience and his dedication to driving excellence and efficiency in capital markets operations aligns with our company focus of delivering best-in-class value to our customers.”

“I am honored to join such a high-performing organization that truly prioritizes adding value to its capital markets customer base,” Christensen stated. “Tier1 is the clear leader in capital markets CRM. I know because I’ve seen and used the product set first-hand. I look forward to helping Tier1 continue to expand its leadership position in the capital markets CRM ecosystem and deliver on its vision to enable better sell-side and buy-side capital markets connectivity.”

Doug is the most recent of several key senior staff hires Tier1 has made following the close of its first round of outside institutional investment in December 2017. Other recent additions include Mark Millar, who was hired as Tier1’s first Chief Financial Officer, Chris McDonald, who was hired as a Senior Director of U.S. Delivery, and Marc Stuzynski, who was hired as a Senior Director of Sales, among others.

“We are committed to building and delivering best-in-class CRM solutions for sell-side and buy-side capital markets participants,” added Notten. “Doug and our other recent management team additions are representative of the commitment we have and will continue to have to leading the capital markets industry forward towards better sell-side and buy-side connectivity.”
