Serengeti Resources Inc. - SIR.v

Serengeti Resources Inc. - SIR.v is focused on development of its Kwanika Copper-Gold project.

Indicated Resources are 1.23b copper and 1.66m ounces of gold plus Inferred Resources of 1.25 billion pounds of copper and 0.91 million ounces of gold. An NI 43-101 suggests a measured resource of 0.48 million gold ounces, indicated resources of 3.71 million gold and inferred 0.76 million gold ounces.

On September 22, 2016 the company released News

"Serengeti Resources Inc. (SIR:TSX-V) reports the results of a recently completed drilling program on its Kwanika copper-gold resource stage project located in Quesnel Trough of British Columbia. Three holes were completed totaling 2,446 metres ("m") and included an intercept of 438m grading 0.71% Cu, 0.83 g/t Au within the Kwanika Central Zone resource shell. The second hole intersected a broad, gold anomalous interval within highly altered andesites potentially lying above a separate buried mineralized centre, some 500m to the north. The third and deepest hole essentially ended in copper-gold mineralization on the northwest edge of the Central Zone, indicating the system appears to be increasing in grade and remains open to depth in this direction.

Drill hole K-177 was designed to test; a) the up-dip and down-dip edges of the Central Zone, b) test for lateral continuity of the monzonite-hosted, supergene-enriched copper zone that caps the deposit and c) assist in resource modeling and future definition drilling of the Central Zone. K-177 met all these objectives and encountered some of the highest grades intersected in the zone to date, for instance 19.04 % Cu , 6.52 g/t Au over 3.6m within a 233.6m interval grading 1.18% Cu, 1.3 g/t Au.

Famous Curses

Gillette, the maker of shaving products may be cursed ... at least when it comes to its athletic promoters.

Gillette's most recent ambassadors, Thierry Henry, Tiger Woods and Roger Federer careers may have been cut short by the razor's curse. In addition, the former face of Gillette, David Beckham, seemingly suffered the effects of the curse for several years after the company ended its agreement with him.
Da Billy Goat Curse. In 1945, William "Billy Goat" Sianis brought his pet goat, Murphy, to Wrigley Field to see the fourth game of the 1945 World Series between the Chicago Cubs and the Detroit Tigers. Sianis had purchased two box seats for him and his pet goat, and prior to the game he paraded the animal–wearing a sign proclaiming “We Got Detroit’s Goat”–around the field.

Sianis and his goat were later ejected from the stadium after complaints because of the goat’s objectionable odour.
Sianis reportedly put a curse on the team that day. Ever since, the Cubs have had legendarily bad luck.

The Cubs have not won a World Series since 1908 -- no other team in the history of the game has gone as long without a championship.
Rasputin and the Romanovs. Rasputin was a self-proclaimed magician and cult leader. Eventually Rasputin's power went to his head and the Romanovs allegedly decided to have him killed. But he proved to be exceptionally resilient.

Reportedly it took poison, a fall down a staircase, repeated gunshots and drowning before Rasputin was finally dead. It's said that he mumbled a curse as he died, assuring Russia's ruling monarchs that they would all be dead themselves within a year. The Romanov family was murdered in a mass execution less than a year later.
Tecumseh's Curse. Tecumseh's Curse is a widely spread explanation for why, from 1840 to 1960, every U.S. president elected (or re-elected) every 20th year has died in office.

Rumour has it that Native American leader Tecumseh administered the curse when William Henry Harrison's troops defeated his forces at the Battle of Tippecanoe.
Curse of the Kennedys. The Kennedy curse is a term sometimes used to describe a series of tragic events involving members of the high profile, powerful and iconic Kennedy family.
