LoneStar will use GetSwift’s software to help optimise their food delivery logistics worldwide.

The restaurant chain was founded in 1986 and now provides dine-in and takeaway dining services from 23 locations across Canada.

This partnership provides further evidence of GetSwift’s ability to rapidly expand beyond Australia and offer its software in multiple markets.

GetSwift’s software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering is revolutionising the logistics business and is currently utilised by clients in over 59 countries and 475 cities.

The partnership follows recent deals also done in April with Mobi2Go, Commonwealth Bank of Australia (ASX:CBA) and Crosstown Doughnuts.

GetSwift listed on the ASX by way of initial public offering (IPO) in December 2016 raising $5 million by offering shares priced at $0.20.

With shares currently trading at $0.68, the company has had a very positive start to 2017.

As part of the agreement, Wattle Health will commence initial supply of its infant formula to 100 key stores of Aiyingdao across mainland China.

It is worth noting that Aiyingdao’s network is responsible for 40% of all infant formula sales in China, with over 1000 retail store locations.

The companies are also commencing negotiations to formalise a long-term supply agreement to market infant formula across the entire Aiyingdao network in mainland China.

Based in Melbourne Victoria, Wattle Health is in the business of developing and marketing consumer food products, with an initial focus on dairy products (dried milk and infant formula).

The company listed on the ASX in March 2017 after raising $8 million from an oversubscribed initial public offer.

Interestingly, the company’s shares were last trading at $0.40, double the issue price of $0.20.

Wattle Health uses only Australian manufacturers to manufacture its products.

This is intended to promote and leverage on the brand positively in Australia and in export markets, as there is growing consumer sentiment for Australian made food products.

The agreement follows the recent announcement of Goldfields Money’s forthcoming rebranding initiative and the introduction of core banking system and associated digital banking technology.

Goldfields is an Authorised Deposit-taking Institution (ADI) regulated by Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) and is pursuing its vision of becoming a digital bank.

Goldfield and InstaRem is aiming to develop cross-border banking applications for business customers with a focus on small to medium sized enterprises.

Furthermore, the companies will develop and market cross-border banking applications for the general public with a focus on visa holders visiting or living in Australia.

Last month, Goldfields raised more than $4.2 million in an oversubscribed share placement to sophisticated investors and a number of existing shareholders.

The funds raised through the placement would be used in implementing a new core banking system. Goldfields’ digital platform is expected to go live in the first quarter of FY2018.

The funds will also complete a rebrand, increase the Tier 1 common equity capital to facilitate more growth in the loan portfolio and add to the company’s working capital.

<![CDATA[News - Micro-X raising $10M to commercialise mobile x-ray unit ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com.au/companies/news/176192/micro-x-raising-10m-to-commercialise-mobile-x-ray-unit-176192.html Micro-X (ASX:MX1) is raising $10 million to support the commercialisation of its mobile x-ray unit, the DRX Revolution Nano, including working capital requirements for first orders.

The company has already completed a $5.2 million institutional placement at $0.40, receiving strong support from both existing and new institutional and sophisticated investors.

Furthermore, an entitlement offer will open to eligible shareholders on 20 April 2017, to raise up to $4.8 million at $0.40.

DRX Revolution Nano is an ultra-lightweight digital mobile x-ray system for use in hospital wards and intensive care units.

The system was recently featured at international trade shows as part of the early marketing awareness campaign for the product.

The capital raising comes at a pivotal time for Micro-X, as it prepares for the first commercial
orders following the progress towards approval for sale in a number of jurisdictions.

This includes the receipt of a “K” number for the DRX Revolution Nano from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) last month.

Micro-X has also received ISO 13485 accreditation certificate, which is a material step
towards achieving compliance with the EU Medical Device Directive.

Proceeds from the issue will also support development of Micro-X’s “Rover” digital mobile x-ray, which is optimised for use in military hospitals and in support of disaster relief. 

Moreover, Micro-X is also developing, under contract to the Australian Department of Defence, a “Mobile Backscatter Imager” system for stand-off imaging of improvised explosive devices.

The company started trading on the ASX from 6 April 2017 following a demerger from Perth-based explorer TNG (ASX:TNG).

Todd River completed a $6 million initial public offer after successfully spinning out the Northern Territory base metal assets previously held by TNG.

Interestingly, the company’s shares are currently trading 20% up from its issue price of $0.20, at $0.24.

The maiden drilling program at Mount Hardy has been designed to test several strong geophysical targets associated with extensive surface mineralisation outlined by previous exploration work.

Previous exploration by TNG had discovered large areas of surface copper mineralisation, with coincident induced polarisation and electromagnetic targets and associated mineralisation at depth.

The drilling program will continue until mid-May before the rig moves on to the company’s Walabanba Project, where further high priority geophysical targets have been scheduled for diamond drilling.

Todd River’s portfolio includes the Manbarrum zinc project, the Mount Hardy copper-zinc project, the Stokes Yard zinc project and the McArthur copper-zinc project, as well as a number of other exploration assets.

GetSwift’s shares were last trading circa 24.5% higher intra-day, at $0.61.

The company’s software-as-a-service platform streamlines an organisation’s logistics, optimises delivery routes, automates the delivery dispatch process and provides real-time tracking alerts.

As per the new partnership, GetSwift will provide Commonwealth Bank’s Albert point of sale (POS) payment terminal to delivery drivers in its network.

This will allow consumers to pay for goods on arrival as opposed to paying for them ahead of time.

The partnership will allow Commonwealth Bank’s retail merchant clients to access an affordable logistics platform to improve their customers’ experience in buying goods.

Effectively, the Albert POS will turn into a delivery-ready store, with the delivery outsourced to either existing logistics companies on the GetSwift network, or the merchant’s in-house delivery team.

Importantly, GetSwift estimates the deal will result in over 257 million deliveries on its platform over the next five years, with an estimated aggregate transaction value of $9 billion.

For vendors, it is a cost-effective way of tackling the threat from Amazon, Foodora, UberEats, Deliveroo and other global technology companies attempting to capture this space.

Commonwealth Bank will work with GetSwift to develop new and innovative POS solutions and other devices, where a payment terminal can even be a GPS tracker of the goods.

Rollouts will commence shortly to selected markets with a full national deployment expected in 2017.

<![CDATA[News - Genetic Signatures launches novel infection detection kit ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com.au/companies/news/175791/genetic-signatures-launches-novel-infection-detection-kit-175791.html Molecular diagnostics company Genetic Signatures (ASX:GSS) has achieved a major breakthrough by launching the EasyScreen™ sexually transmitted infection (STI) detection kit.

The product launch follows a clinical trial and validation period that demonstrated the kit’s superior capability over traditional methods to detect 12 of the world’s most commonly encountered STIs.

This includes chlamydia, gonorrhoea and syphilis.

The World Health Organisation recently reported that globally more than one million sexually transmitted infections are contracted daily.

EasyScreen™ STI/Genital Pathogen Detection Kit offers improved accuracy, sensitivity and detection of additional STI pathogens over existing techniques.

This outcome is due to Genetic Signatures’ unique 3base™ platform, which reduces genetic information complexity and delivers more accurate results.

SydPath, the fully accredited private Pathology Laboratory of St. Vincent’s hospital will be the first customer to use the company’s new STI kit on an ongoing basis.

Genetic Signatures is aiming to capture a significant share of the $550 million market for STI testing.

The company’s share price has increased circa 20% during the past month, last trading at $0.43.

The company’s shares were last trading 15.4% higher intra-day on Wednesday, at $0.015.

The OptiFlox System provides real time, cloud-based dosing of coagulants and flocculants for treating wastewater from coal preparation plants and dairy processing facilities.

The new order paves the way for the first commercial deployment of an OptiFlox System in the dairy sector, with the system expected to be installed in mid-to-late May 2017.

The system will be installed in the wastewater treatment plant to monitor water quality and maintain optimal flocculation conditions through automated control of coagulant dosing.

The installation provides additional validation of SciDev’s technology, which will soon be commercially deployed in both the coal and dairy sectors.

The dairy manufacturer will pay a monthly leasing fee during the 12-month contract period for the use and maintenance of the OptiFlox System at its processing facility.

This represents a similar arrangement to SciDev’s agreement with Peabody Energy for the OptiFlox System installed at the Wilpinjong coal mine.

Importantly, a second dairy sector customer is expected to install the OptiFlox System at its processing plant during the second half of 2017.

This will further strengthen SciDev’s presence in the dairy industry while it simultaneously pursues additional opportunities in the natural resources, energy, sewage and food processing sectors.

<![CDATA[News - Blackstone Minerals eyes gold, nickel targets at Silver Swan South ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com.au/companies/news/175576/blackstone-minerals-eyes-gold-nickel-targets-at-silver-swan-south-175576.html Blackstone Minerals (ASX:BSX) is planning to commence drilling at its Silver Swan South Project, located 40 kilometres northeast of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia.

Blackstone’s first phase of drilling at Silver Swan South will target both gold and sulphide nickel mineralisation.

The project is located 10 kilometres from the Silver Swan and Black Swan Nickel Mines (166,000 tonnes nickel).

The gold targets within the project area are associated with the interpreted northern extension of the Fitzroy Shear Zone, which hosts the Kanowna Belle Gold Mine (+5 million ounces gold).

Blackstone’s program will test for basement hosted mineralisation by drilling for gold and base metal anomalism identified by previous reconnaissance style drilling.

Previous vertical reconnaissance drilling intersected up to 3 metres at 3.5 g/t gold and 4 metres at 1.3 g/t gold under transported lake clays.

Blackstone’s drill program will focus on further defining the gold target in anticipation of follow up reverse circulation drilling.

In addition to gold, the company’s first drill program will also target sulphide nickel mineralisation associated with the ultramafic unit.

The ultramafic unit is part of a sequence of komatiites which already hosts both the Silver Swan and Black Swan Nickel deposits.

Blackstone Minerals listed on the ASX in January 2017 after completing its initial public offering and raising $3.5 million.

<![CDATA[News - Kalamazoo Resources sees positive initial gold results from A-Zone ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com.au/companies/news/175571/kalamazoo-resources-sees-positive-initial-gold-results-from-a-zone-175571.html Kalamazoo Resources (ASX:KZR) has intercepted several significant gold intersections during its maiden drilling program at the A-Zone Gold project in Western Australia.

The A-Zone Gold project forms part of Kalamazoo’s wholly-owned Snake Well Gold Project, located about 450 kilometres north of Perth in the Mid-West region.

Kalamazoo has now completed a 75-hole drilling program for 3,375 metres at A-Zone.

The results for circa 1/3 of the holes have been received so far, including:

- 2 metres at 9.54 g/t gold from 62 metres;
- 2 metres at 4.35 g/t gold from 24 metres & 6 metres at 3.21 g/t gold from 29 metres;
- 5 metres at 3.23 g/t gold from 25 metres.

Shallow gold mineralisation at A-Zone was discovered in the late 1980’s with further drilling completed by Giralia Resources in the early 2000’s.

Kalamazoo has intercepted several significant intersections of gold mineralisation, supporting the position and tenor of gold grades indicated by the historical drilling.

The drilling is part of an overall works program to complete development studies at A-Zone, in preparation for a feasibility study for consideration of a decision to mine.

Any resultant production would be processed through the Minjar Gold processing plant as part of an ore sale and purchase agreement with Minjar Gold Pty Ltd.

Kalamazoo will receive 60% of free cash flow generated from the operation.

The company’s shares were last trading 3% higher intra-day, at $0.175.

<![CDATA[News - Mineral Deposits resumes titanium feedstock shipment from Norway ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com.au/companies/news/175565/mineral-deposits-resumes-titanium-feedstock-shipment-from-norway-175565.html Mineral Deposits (ASX:MDL) has shipped the first batch of chloride titanium slag following the successful restart of operations at the TiZir Titanium & Iron ilmenite upgrading facility in Norway.

The facility is a 50:50 joint venture between Mineral Deposits and ERAMET (EPA:ERA) of France.

The TiZir Titanium & Iron ilmenite facility upgrades ilmenite to produce high quality titanium feedstocks, primarily sold to pigment producers.

It also produces a high‐purity pig iron, a valuable co‐product, which is sold to ductile iron foundries.

The ramp up of operations to enable expanded production capacity is continuing according to schedule.

It is anticipated that the upgraded facilities will increase smelting capacity by circa 15% and improve maintenance performance by lengthening periods between scheduled shutdowns.

Earlier this month, Mineral Deposits completed the institutional component of a capital raising, with a total of $15 million raised from institutional investors.

The fully underwritten retail entitlement offer closed on 20 March 2017, raising up to $24.2 million.

Mineral Deposits and ERAMET also jointly (50:50) owns the Grande Côte mineral sands operation (GCO) in Senegal, West Africa.

The heavy mineral concentrate production of 194,100 tonnes from GCO in Q4 2016 was considerably higher than the previous quarters in 2016 and has set a new record for the operation.

The majority of GCO’s ilmenite is sold to the TiZir Titanium & Iron ilmenite upgrading facility in Norway.

<![CDATA[News - Lifespot Health eyes medicinal cannabis opportunities ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com.au/companies/news/175502/lifespot-health-eyes-medicinal-cannabis-opportunities-175502.html Lifespot Health’s (ASX:LSH) German subsidiary BodyTel is exploring global opportunities within the medicinal cannabis sector to integrate the BodyTel telemedical platform.

The company will explore opportunities to use its medical diagnostic and monitoring technologies to assist in the administration and monitoring of medicinal cannabis use in patients.

Lifespot is in discussions with a number of European-based medical device companies.

Last month, BodyTel signed an agreement with Beurer GmbH to integrate Beurer’s blood pressure monitoring device with BodyTel’s telemedical platform.

Beurer produces circa 2,200 products including weighing scales and blood pressure monitors, with a revenue of about €230 million.

BodyTel will build apps for patients based on Beurer`s newly developed bluetooth enabled clinical blood pressure monitoring device.

Lifespot was admitted to the ASX in January 2017 after raising $8 million at an issue price of $0.20 per share.

The company’s shares are presently trading 45% higher from its issue price, at $0.29.

Lifespot is rolling out its medical diagnostic and telemonitoring technologies into global markets, primarily the European and Australian markets.

<![CDATA[News - Atrum Coal identifies promising anthracite targets in British Columbia ]]> http://www.proactiveinvestors.com.au/companies/news/175478/atrum-coal-identifies-promising-anthracite-targets-in-british-columbia-175478.html Atrum Coal (ASX:ATU) has identified three new anthracite targets from the 2016 exploration program at its Panorama North Anthracite Project in British Columbia, Canada.

The company is pursuing the project along with its joint venture partner Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corporation (JOGMEC).

Importantly, the physical and chemical testing of intersected anthracite seams exhibit the potential to produce low-ash, high-grade anthracite products.

Anthracite is the highest grade of coal, with fewest impurities and the highest energy content of all coals.

Panorama North is positioned on the southern extent of the Groundhog Coalfield, within the Bowser Basin in northwest British Columbia.

The property is located 15 kilometres southwest of Atrum’s flagship Groundhog North Mining Complex.

The exploration in 2016 included field mapping and completing a total of 1,194 metres of drilling.

The washability simulations of the coal seams indicated the potential product qualities of the target seams at Panorama North to be very similar to those at Groundhog North.

Atrum will undertake further exploration in 2017 to better understand the resource potential of Panorama North.

The company is in the final stages of planning the 2017 program, and has confirmed a work program and budget with its partner JOGMEC.

The drilling at Panorama North is expected to recommence in early Q3 2017.

Meanwhile, the Groundhog North Project continues to be the primary focus for Atrum.

Atrum is planning to be back on site at Groundhog North during winter, to extract additional samples for North Asian steel mills and industrial customers.

The company is aiming to complete drilling at Groundhog North to underpin a reserve statement ahead of a definitive feasibility study.
