Trillion Energy International Inc. (CSE:TCF) (OTCMKTS:TCFF) (FRA:3P2N) has announced plans to expand its offshore acreage at the SASB Gas field from its current 12,385 hectares by approximately 200,000 hectares, a 16 fold increase, aimed at discovering additional new gas resources proximate to its field and search for deeper gas potential. The company noted that the first step in this process is to conduct a technical study under a Technical Investigation Survey Permit of the surrounding area. The license fee for the permit is approximately US$40,000 for the 200,000 hectares. Upon receiving the permit, the company said it plans to reprocess existing 3D and 2D seismic shot over 15 years ago which covers the permit area. It said new methods for processing the seismic are expected to greatly improve the quality of the data allowing the company to define new exploration targets proximate to the production block but located outside the current boundaries.

EVmo Inc, formerly YayYo Inc (OTC:YAYO), a provider of vehicles to the rideshare and delivery gig economy sector, announced plans Wednesday to acquire a fleet of Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) electric vehicles and committed to going all-electric by the end of the year. The decision to double down on EVs reflects past announcements from companies including Uber Technologies Inc (NYSE:UBER) and Lyft Inc (NASDAQ:LYFT), both of which have pledged to exclusively utilize EVs by 2030. General Motors Company (NYSE:GM) has said it plans to completely phase out vehicles using internal combustion engines by 2035. “The future of mobility is electric,” EVmo CEO Steven Sanchez said. “Tesla is an obvious choice and we are excited to be one of the first Tesla rideshare fleet partners in the US that will deploy electric vehicles rather than gasoline-powered vehicles, for services like Uber and Lyft. Our EV commitment provides outsized climate benefits. The explosive growth in the gig economy and evidence that it’s cannibalizing more climate-friendly mass transit makes it important for EVmo to go all electric”.

Victory Resources Corporation (CSE:VR) (OTCMKTS:VRCFF) (FRA:VR62) expects the rig to be readied for drilling on its Loner property in Nevada in the week of March 15, 2021, and barring weather related delays, drilling should be completed around mid-April this year. “Victory Resources is currently mobilizing its crew and equipment to the Loner Property to begin a 500m drill program. The geologist will be on-site spotting holes and surveying sections beginning March 10th,” the company said in a brief statement Wednesday.

Vuzix Corporation (NASDAQ:VUZI) announced Wednesday a partnership with German market tech start-up rooom AG that offers an innovative all-in-one solution for 3D and Augmented Reality (AR) to support interest from customers in healthcare, education, field service, construction, manufacturing, and training. Vuzix said its combined solution with rooom AG addresses growth needs as businesses position for expansion in the wake of reopenings. The future of mobile workers across manufacturing, field service, and healthcare has begun to shift from in-person support towards a hybrid model of in-person and remote support, the company noted. 

GoviEx Uranium Inc (CVE:GXU) (OTCQB:GVXXF) (FRA:7GU) has revealed, in a letter to shareholders, that despite the challenges related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the company improved its financial position, advanced its pipeline of uranium mine development plans, specifically in Niger, and began the assessment of its gold prospects in Mali in 2020. GoviEx also said it expects the positive momentum of the last year to continue in 2021, fueled by the commitment to advance its mineral projects while focusing on fiscal discipline to maintain balance sheet strength. To that end, GoviEx completed a C$8 million private placement equity financing in January 2021, which combined with the C$7.3 million it raised during 2020 is expected to fund the potential accelerated development of its mine-permitted projects as the anticipated uranium market recovery continues through 2021. 

Pacific Empire Minerals Corp (CVE:PEMC) (OTCQB:PEMSF) has announced the appointment of Thomas Hawkins as the company’s new vice president of Exploration, effective immediately.

His strong technical background and expertise in copper porphyry systems are invaluable, and we look forward to working together as we develop exploration targets and strategies at Jean Marie and across our portfolio of copper assets,” Pacific Empire Minerals CEO Brad Peters said in a statement.

The new program could yield some very interesting results, as our technical team will focus on targets both along strike and at depth that appear to have been overlooked by the previous owners,” he added.

However, unlike most NFTs, which are generally digital video or images like an NBA Top Shot highlight or piece of artwork, Oasis will embed AR triggers in each NFT to support and introduce NFT programs, brands and participants.

Ready Set Gold Corp (CSE:RDY) (FRA:0MZ) announced that it has completed the Phase 1 drilling program at its flagship 100%-owned Northshore Gold project in northern Ontario.

XPhyto Therapeutics Corp (CSE:XPHY) (OTCQB:XPHYF) FRA:4XT) and its German diagnostics development partner 3a-diagnostics GmbH have announced successful EN ISO 13485 certification for the rapid point-of-care, SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR Test System (Covid-ID Lab). XPhyto said this standardization and quality assurance certification provides authorization for distribution of Covid-ID Lab upon receipt of the CE mark (CE-IVD) approval.
