Tocvan Ventures Corp (CSE:TOC) (FRA:TV3) reported results from ongoing metallurgical work from its flagship Pilar gold-silver project in Mexico and updated on the second phase drill program there. The preliminary metallurgical results hail from two composite samples taken from a hole reported in December 2020, which hit 94.6 meters (m) at 1.6 grams per ton (g/t) gold, including 9.2m at 10.8 g/t of the yellow metal. The hole is thought to be representative of the central part of the Main Zone at Pilar. The results showed 91% recovery for the low-grade composite and 92% for the medium-grade composite. 

Psyched Wellness Ltd (CSE:PSYC) (OTCQB:PSYCF) (FRA:5U9) announced that it has struck a two-year supply agreement with MB MEMEL GOODS, a Lithuanian company owned by principals with over 15 years of expertise and experience in gathering, processing and distributing various wild mushrooms, including Amanita Muscaria and Chaga, and wild berries. The Toronto-based health supplements company focused on the distribution of mushroom-derived products, said the deal provides for “an initial supply of 200 kilogramme of Amanita muscaria dried mushroom caps.” Psyched Wellness anticipates that the initial supply will be picked between September and December 2021 and be delivered intermittently to the company over the four-month period.

The agreement with the Tsay Key Dene Nation, Kwadacha Nation and Takla Nation is poised to form the basis of a larger deal when Lawyers’ advances towards regulatory approvals and is key towards obtaining a social license for mine permitting. “Benchmark is very encouraged to be working cooperatively with the key stakeholders in this region, clearly demonstrating the capability and strength of support from our partner First Nations,” said Benchmark CEO John Williamson in a statement.

The Vancouver, British Columbia-based company noted that the opportunity to validate its technology gives it access to the £4.5 billion UK gasoline station sector. Certas supplies around 500 Gulf and Pace branded sites and operates 100 company-owned locations in the UK, according to KPMG. The move will allow Loop to integrate its retail insights and loyalty program with Certas’ customer engagement scheme, providing Certas with a mobile-friendly platform for motorists, said the company.

As a result, the cash operating margin was 100% for the quarter.
