The property consists of 32 claim units that represent approximately 12 square kilometers. The property is near the west end of the Neo- Archean Abitibi greenstone belt, approximately 18 km northeast of Timmins and 6 kilometers north of the Porcupine-Destor fault.
The Company will acquire 100 percent of the property for cash payments over three years amounting to $95,000.00 and work expenditures totaling $110,000.00 with a 2 percent Net Smelter Return (NSR) granted to the vendors.

Analysis of the preliminary data from the VTEM Plus indicates mineralized targets exist in the eastern portions and a mineralized trend from the southeast to the northwest of the property at approximate depths of 200 meters. The survey also identifies a system of dykes that are very common in mineralized zones on this trend and are common to the known geology of this locale. More results and analysis will undergo evaluation to choose targets for ground follow-up to help prioritize anomalies for drilling. The Hoyle North property is contiguous to Goldcorp's Hoyle Pond mine. In addition, it is within short distances to significant resources such as Owl Creek and Bell Creek.

Advaxis, a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing the next-generation of immunotherapies for cancer and infectious diseases, announced that the Brown University Oncology Research Group (BrUOG) has been chosen to coordinate a Phase 1/2 study of ADXS-HPV in 25 patients with HPV-associated anal cancer. Dr. Howard Safran, professor of medicine, will be principal investigator. Patients will be treated at Rhode Island Hospital and The Miriam Hospital (the main teaching hospitals of The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University). Multiple institutions will collaborate.
This non-randomized, open-label, multi-center study will evaluate the safety and effectiveness of ADXS-HPV when combined with standard chemotherapy and radiation treatment for anal cancer. The primary objectives of the trial include the evaluation of adverse events and the evaluation of 6-month clinical response. The study is expected to open for enrollment February 2013.
“We are pleased that the Brown University Oncology Research Group is coordinating this study in anal cancer using Advaxis’ lead construct ADXS-HPV,” commented Dr. Robert Petit, Vice President of Clinical Operations & Medical Affairs at Advaxis. “This study is an important first step in evaluating the combination of ADXS-HPV immunotherapy with the standard of care in HPV-associated cancers like anal cancer. The investigation of ADXS-HPV across a number of indications and in combination with other therapies will help us learn how best to use Advaxis immunotherapy to benefit patients with HPV-associated cancers. The anal cancer study will continue to build the safety and efficacy profile of our immunotherapy platform.”
Virtually all cases of squamous cell cancer (SCC) of the anus are caused by a Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) infection. Anal cancer cells infected with HPV have the tumor associated antigen HPV E7. ADXS-HPV causes antigen presenting cells to stimulate other immune cells to attack cancer expressing HPV E7. In Phase 1 clinical trials and preliminary data from ongoing Phase 2 trials, ADXS-HPV has been safely administered to 193 patients with other HPV-associated diseases (recurrent/refractory cervical cancer and CIN 2/3), and it has demonstrated clinical benefit as a single agent or in combination with chemotherapy.

Access control, a $10 billion part of the $100 billion security market, has been dominated by multi-national corporations, such as Honeywell and UTC. It has also been dominated by large expensive electronic hardware. Technologically, access security tends to be an isolated proprietary-based system, becoming increasingly expensive and out of step with developments in information technology. Such needs as correlating real-time information about access and physical presence can be difficult or even impossible using this traditional control-panel oriented approach. Today, new information security regulations, plus ongoing pressure on operating costs, aged physical access infrastructure, and new technologies that unify logical and physical security, are pushing the industry to a tipping point. The industry needs to take advantage of advanced IT capabilities. However, most of the established vendors in the physical security industry do not have deep IT product development and engineering skills, nor access and relationships with the “IT-side” of enterprise and government organizations.
The issue with access control hardware is not strictly IP. Many panels and reader suppliers are developing IP interfaces. The real issue is that control panels and IP readers are designed using C+ or other code that precludes the ability to properly deploy access control on IT platforms. Viscount, through its aggressive development of advanced software-based solutions that utilize online digital communication versus typical control panels and wiring, allows organizations to manage identity and access management in one place, while eliminating the need for expensive proprietary infrastructure. Using Viscount’s IT enabled card access and physical security systems eliminates the problems and costs associated with proprietary control panels.
It’s a fast developing market situation that represents a unique opportunity for Viscount and its team of experts. According to a recent Soundview Research Report, Viscount is the only public investment vehicle of its kind in this space and has the potential to reward shareholders with more than 4x returns over the next 12 months.
