San Gold Confirms High Grade at Deep Rice Lake

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA--(Marketwired - Nov 20, 2013) - San Gold Corporation (SGR.TO)(SGRCF) today provided updated drilling results from its underground program on 26 Level of the Rice Lake mine.

Drilling results at the eastern extent of the 710 zone continue to return high grade gold values over significant widths. This newly discovered 710 HW zone is located in the hanging wall of the 710 zone and is interpreted to be the down dip extension of the 007 zone. The 710 HW zone is within 100 metres of the new 26 level development and is therefore easily accessible. Recent highlights include drill hole 614-13-023 which returned 23.8 g/t Au over 13.9 metres and drill hole 614-13-024 which returned 8.8 g/t Au over 26.9 metres.

"We are extremely pleased with the success of the 710 HW drilling program which continues to expand this zone of gold mineralization. This zone represents an excellent opportunity to provide high grade incremental mill feed and to increase overall grade going forward. Capital expenditure to develop this region is expected to be minimal as mining has already commenced," said Ian Berzins, San Gold's President, CEO and Chief Operating Officer.

Initial interpretation of the 710 HW zone indicates true thickness to be between 30% and 70% of core length. This will be confirmed as mining operations proceed in this region. The following table provides recent highlights of this drilling.

    In Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s world, Melania Trump is listless, and a bit racist. In a new short story by the author of the 2013 novel Americanah, Adichie imagines an exchange between “Mrs. T” and her black Pilates instructor, Janelle. The story extends the world she created (paywall) last June, in a story told from the perspective of the first lady. The Nigerian-born writer published “Janelle Asked to the Bedroom” on T Magazine’s site (paywall) and in a series on Instagram Friday. In the story, told from Janelle’s perspective, the pilates instructor meets a despondent Mrs. T in her apartment bedroom.

    4 Tax Breaks That Are Slated to Disappear (So Grab Them Now!)

    With Republicans' tax reform plan finally starting to take shape, it's a good idea to look into how your favorite tax breaks could change. While there are likely to be substantial changes to the tax reform plan before it potentially becomes law, it seems clear that many of today's itemized deductions will no longer exist. Unfortunately, it's not on the (very short) list of itemized deductions that the GOP plans to retain in tax reform.

    John McCain Takes a Veiled Swipe at Donald Trump's Medical Exemption From the Vietnam War

    Senator John McCain (R-AZ) appeared to take aim at President Donald Trump’s draft deferrals during the Vietnam War this week, following a series of public rebukes of the Trump administration. In an interview about the Vietnam War on C-SPAN3, American History TV, on Oct. 22, McCain criticized “high income” draftees who avoided military service while apparently alluding to the president’s own draft exemption — but he did not mention Trump by name. “One aspect of the [Vietnam] conflict by the way that I will never, ever countenance is that we drafted the lowest income level of America and the highest income level found a doctor that would say that they had a bone spur,” he said, naming the ailment under which Trump received medical deferrals.

Tom Kloza of the Oil Price Information Service is alluding to the U.S. ramping up exports. It follows the 40-year ban that was lifted two years ago. "The highlight you need to watch for the next few months is going to be more record breaking exports of crude oil.

    Apple: Relax, it’s Now a ‘Super-Long’ iPhone Cycle, Says RBC

    Shares of Apple (AAPL) are down 31 cents at $155.94, despite an upbeat note this morning from RBC Capital’s Amit Daryanani, who writes that higher prices for the iPhone will offset lower sales volume for the device the next couple years. What had been thought to be a “super cycle” for the iPhone, writes Daryanani, is now a “super-long cycle” as sales stretch out into coming quarters. Daryanani has an Outperform rating on Apple shares, and an $180 price target, takes his cue from recent rumors of further delays in the forthcoming iPhone X — analysts at Mizuho wrote last week that delays in production could dent the outlook for this quarter when Apple reports earnings on November 2nd. A report

The New York Times reported Saturday that in January, O’Reilly had reached a $32 million settlement with a network analyst who had alleged sexual harassment claims against the host, which reportedly included claims of a non-consensual sexual relationship.

    Two significant insights into Republicans’ evolving tax-reform plan emerged Friday. First, House Speaker Paul Ryan said that an additional top income tax bracket would be proposed to make it easier to maintain high tax rates on the very highest-income Americans. Previous versions of the Republican plan had only three tax brackets, down from the current seven, though the additional fourth bracket was mentioned as a possibility.

    Airbus turmoil overshadows bid to rescue CSeries

    Airbus's coup in buying a $6 billion Canadian jetliner project for a dollar stunned investors and took the spotlight off a growing ethics row last week, but internal disarray has raised questions over how smoothly it can implement the deal. The European planemaker secured the deal for Bombardier's CSeries programme by pledging to throw its marketing might behind the loss-making jets, just as the Airbus sales machine reels from falling sales and internal and external corruption investigations. Chief Executive Tom Enders has urged staff to keep calm in the face of French reports describing payments to intermediaries and growing concern over fallout from the investigations.

MHI said last year Boeing was seeking a new round of lower prices and changes in payment terms as the U.S. manufacturer stepped up efforts to conserve cash. Delays in the 787 development and delivery, due in part to difficulties of managing a global supply chain, prompted Boeing to produce more of the upcoming 777X widebody, including the wings, at home despite MHI's attempts to keep the work in Japan.

One such company worth your investment consideration is Realty Income (NYSE: O), which is organized as a real estate investment trust. REITs tend to have generous dividend yields -- Realty Income's yield is currently 4.6% -- because they're required to pay out at least 90% of their income as dividends in return for preferential tax treatment.

    GE's Got a New CEO

    General Electric Co. (GE) shares posted a swing back into the green Friday, Oct. 20, after tumbling as much as 6% in early trading following disappointing third-quarter results. But if history is any indicator, shares could continue to decline in price under the tenure of a new CEO. Friday's report was the first under new chairman and CEO, John Flannery. He took over for Jeff Immelt, who had been head of the company since 2001. Following Immelt's first quarterly report Oct. 11, 2001, GE stock rose 2.7% on the day earnings were released, according to Bloomberg data. But after that 2.7% increase that day, GE stock tumbled as much as 45% during the next 16 months, according to the data. From his
