Dave Moylan, Dataram's (NASDAQ:DRAM) Chairman and CEO and Ed Karr, CEO of US Gold and Director of Dataram Discuss US Gold Corp. Great Gold Exploration Potential in Nevada
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA

Dataram (NASDAQ:DRAM) is a leading independent manufacturer of computer memory products and technology oriented performance solutions. Recently, to diversify their operations and enhance shareholder value, the Company decided to acquire US Gold Corp. along with the advanced stage Copper King gold exploration project that has a 43-101 technical report, and a PEA done in 2012. Dataram is in the process of updating the PEA with the new gold, copper and energy prices, by the end of the summer. According to Ed Karr, CEO of US Gold and director of Dataram, the project is very viable and robust, with real economic potential. It has about 926,000 ounces of measured indicated gold, 174,000 ounces of inferred gold plus additional 223 million measured and 62.5 million indicated pounds of copper. In addition, the mineralization extends both North and South, holding upside potential for additional exploration discoveries. The company's VP of Exploration is Dave Mathewson, the world-class geologist, who is credited with discovering Nevada's Rain mining district. He brought with him another exciting project called the Keystone property that has potential to become the next great gold discovery in Nevada. We learned from Mr. Karr, US Gold's business model is to buy good high potential exploration properties, advance them towards production, and then ultimately do a deal.

Cobalt Blue Holdings Limited (ASX: COB): World Class Pure Cobalt Play; Interview with Joe Kaderavek, CEO
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA

Cobalt Blue Holdings Limited (ASX:COB) is a pure-play, cobalt-explorer/developer, incorporated on the 26th of August 2016 for the express purpose of developing the Thackaringa Cobalt Project in New South Wales, Australia, with the goal of achieving commercial production of cobalt. We interviewed Joe Kaderavek, CEO of Cobalt Blue Holdings, and learned the company has approximately $9.5 million cash in the bank and an accelerated timeframe to deliver a bankable feasibility study by mid-2019. Thackaringa is a rare case of a world class cobalt project located next to a major city, with strong infrastructure that will substantially lower operating costs. Plans for 2017 include upgrading the resource to 100 million tons and delivering a Scoping Study. Strong cobalt demand, driven by lithium ion batteries, coupled with an increasingly fragile supply chain, dependent upon production from the Democratic Republic of Congo, creates a positive future.
