Barisan Gold Corporation (TSXV-BG) is pleased to announce initial drilling results at its Upper Tengkereng prospect, located in the Province of Aceh, Indonesia.

Hole UTD-003 was completed on October 14, 2013 to a depth of 922 metres and final assays have been received. Porphyry mineralization was intersected in UTD-003 from 18 metres to the end of the hole at 922 metres. UTD-003 validated the geological model of the Upper Tengkereng porphyry prospect by confirming the width and depth of the high grade zone identified in hole UTD-002. UTD-002, drilled in December 2010, intersected a 59 metre interval grading 1.21 g/t gold + 0.48% copper (2.0g/t gold equivalent or 1.2% copper equivalent) at the bottom of its hole. At the same depth and area, UTD-003 intersected important copper and gold mineralization, including a 262 metre interval grading 0.81 g/t gold + 0.49% copper (1.6g/t gold equivalent or 1.0% copper equivalent). UTD-003 has significantly increased the width of mineralisation along a southeast-northwest direction on the north-eastern edge of the system, further validating the mineralization intersected in UTD-002..

Titan Medical Inc. - TMD.v

Titan Medical Inc. - TMD.v is developing the SPORT™ (Single Port Orifice Robotic Technology) Surgical System for use in minimally invasive surgery (“MIS”) that is expected to be commercially available in 2015.
Titan’s robotic surgical system is being designed to expand robotic surgery into areas that are currently underserviced. Currently, the most common medical procedures for which robotic systems are used are hysterectomies and prostatectomies.

On November 11, 2013 the company released News

"Titan Medical Inc. (“Titan” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE:TMD)(OTCQX:TITXF) announced today that it recently started tissue testing that has been highly successful in assessing and measuring the functionality of the Single Port Orifice Robotic Technology SPORT™ Surgical System. The purpose of tissue testing is to undertake a sequence of tests with refinements and improvements after each test, leading ultimately to the finalized fully-functional SPORT™ Surgical System. Tissue testing constitutes the first major milestone on Titan’s pathway to commercialization.

In the last two weeks, the protocols in the first two tests were implemented and the goals were successfully attained. Two more tests are planned before the end of this year. During the next nine months, iterative testing and fine tuning of all the components of the SPORT™ Surgical System will take place.

The testing is being led by Dr. Dennis Fowler who is responsible for clinical affairs and Titan’s process for obtaining regulatory approval. Dr. Fowler is working closely with the Clinical and Regulatory department of Ximedica, Titan’s development partner of record, in solidifying Titan’s regulatory strategy for obtaining permission to market the SPORT™ Surgical System from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and for obtaining CE Mark from the European Union.

"PolyMet Mining Corp. (“PolyMet” or the “Company”) TSX: POM; NYSE MKT: PLM – The publication of a Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement will wait two more weeks as a result of the three-week federal government shutdown, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources announced in a news release today (

As a result, the document will be available for public review on Dec. 6, 2013 when it will be published in the Federal Register. It will then be published in the Minnesota Environmental Quality Board Monitor Dec. 9, 2013. The original publication date was Nov. 22, 2013.

“We’re taking this short delay in stride,” said Jon Cherry, president and CEO. “We look forward to this long-awaited comprehensive environmental review being published and made available for public review and comment.”

He said publication of the SDEIS is the culmination of nearly four years of work by scientists and engineers to improve the design and complete the analysis and technical studies for the proposed mine as requested by the state and federal government agencies co-leading the review. It marks a major milestone in the project’s development.
