    Musgrave Minerals Ltd (ASX:MGV) has extended high-grade gold mineralisation with reverse circulation (RC) drilling at the Lake Austin North prospect within its  Cue Gold Project. The southern-most RC hole intersected the best result to date in the A zone of the prospect, grading 94 metres at 2.4 g/t gold from 156 metres. Within this intersection was higher grade assays of 52 metres at 4.1 g/t including 12 metres at 8.8 g/t from 204 metres and 6 metres at 6.3 g/t from 240 metres. Diamond drilling has begun at Lake Austin North and first assay results are expected in early December.   Musgrave managing director Rob Waugh said: “Drill hole 18MORC057 has returned another thick high-grade result and delivered our best intercept to date at A zone. “It is the most southerly hole drilled to date testing the basement on A zone and the results indicate the system is open to the south as well as to the north and at depth. “Lake Austin North is proving to be a large, well-mineralised system and the current diamond drilling program will aim to further outline the size and grade of this new and exciting gold discovery.” READ: Musgrave Minerals to follow-up high-grade gold results at Cue project in Western Australia The hole drilled in A zone was terminated in mineralisation at the depth capacity of the rig, with the mineralisation open up-dip, down-dip and along strike to the north and south. The hole also intersected an upper regolith gold halo of 30 metres at 0.3 g/t from 102 metres. Drilling at Lake Austin’s C zone was terminated early and did not reach the planned depth. Mineralisation at C zone is hosted within a silica-sericite-pyrite altered tonalite intrusive with quartz veining. Orientation and extent of the gold mineralisation is unknown and Musgrave intends to test the target with aircore drilling. Reported by Proactive Investors 2 hours ago.

    U.S.-China Trade War Impacting Companies Worldwide, AmCham South China Study Reveals GUANGZHOU, China, Oct. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S.-China trade war and its tariff-counter-tariff style of negotiation is impacting not just the Chinese or U.S. businesses but also companies from many other countries as well, according to the new Special Report on the Impact of U.S. and Chinese Tariffs conducted by the American Chamber of Commerce in South China (AmCham South China).Scan to download Special Report on the Impact of U.S. and Chinese Tariffs by AmCham South China.

    The Special Report on the Impact of U.S. and Chinese Tariffs was conducted between September 21 and October 10, shortly after the additional US$200 billion in tariffs on Chinese products imposed by the Trump administration and the tariffs on US$60 billion on the U.S. products by the Chinese government. A total of 219 companies participated, of which one third are engaged in the manufacturing industry, more than one half in the service sector, and around one seventh in other industries. Roughly 95 percent of respondents have operations in China.

    The Study shows the combined tariffs have negatively impacted various industries and companies not only from the U.S. and China, but also those from different origins, affecting business operations and resulting in substantial loss of business volume and market share. Participants in the Study include companies from China, U.S., Canada, European Union, Japan, Korea, Southeast Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and Hong Kong and Macau SARs. Nearly a half of the respondents report that they have lost market share to companies from other countries due to the trade war. Vietnam, Germany, and Japan are generally considered as the top three competitors particularly for the U.S. companies in imports and exports, while for the Chinese the competitions come from Vietnam, India, and Korea. Among all the participants, manufacturing companies are suffering more losses of market share than those in agribusiness.

    Chamber president Dr. Harley Seyedin said the immediate impact has not yet been completely felt by these businesses since much of the orders for export items from both countries had been placed long in advance of the dispute and in many cases few, if any, alternative sourcing options are available. "The primary concerns at this point is that consumers in both nations may have to pay slightly more for many items now and likely much higher prices in the not too distant future," Seyedin added.

    According to the Study, although plans for relocation of manufacturing lines outside of China are considered by a majority of respondents, only very few participants will give up the Chinese market. Instead, most of the respondents see the expansion of the Chinese market as one of the most important remedies for the imposed tariffs, which sheds light on the priority of the Chinese market. Meanwhile, it is interesting to note that just one percent of the Study participants indicate any plans for establishing manufacturing in North America.

    Both the U.S. and Chinese companies harbor low confidence in U.S.-China relations. Negative opinions towards imposed tariffs are widely shared by the business community. Meanwhile, more U.S. companies report that they are hurt in the trade tensions than their Chinese counterparts, particularly in terms of practical impact on the business operation, loss of business volume and market share. Nevertheless, the U.S. companies are more active in reacting towards the impact of the trade disputes.

    Seyedin said he is less worried about the present than he is about the future ramifications between the U.S. and China. "What worries me the most is not so much the immediate impact," Seyedin added, "but the potential long-term loss of access by Chinese companies to the U.S. market and, as a result, American companies' access to a market that will eventually have five times as many consumers as the U.S." He hopes that "the Study, representing the factual points of view of participating companies from countries spanning the globe, will cause the leaders from both sides of the equation to pause and rethink their strategies. We suggest, as countless others have, that all differences can and should be resolved through friendly discussions."

    Auriant Mining AB (publ.) resumed mining at Tardan in July as planned. In Q3 2018, the Company mined 65,000 tonnes of ore with an average grade 2.79 g/t and this ore was stacked on the heap leach.  Total gold production from the heap leach for 9months of 2018 was 208.3 kg (6,632 oz), compared to 538.9 kg (17,326 oz) in the same period in the previous year (-61%).  The main reason for this decline in production was that no mining or crushing operations were carried out in the first 6 months of 2018, in order to save the ore for the more efficient CIL plant, for when it starts to operate in 2019.  The Company expects that Tardan production for the whole of 2018 will be 380 kg, (12,217 oz) which is slightly above the previously announced forecast of 350 kg (11,252 oz)

    The Tardan CIL project is proceeding according to plan. As recently announced, the CIL project complies with Russian Federation environmental protection standards and has been passed by the State Ecological Expertise. The Company aims to start production from the CIL plant in Q3 2019 and produce 1 tonne (32,150 oz) of gold in the year.

    In May 2018, alluvial production was resumed at Solcocon.  This production is 100% outsourced and generates a net margin of 29% of sales for the Company. In the current period, the Company engaged 2 contractors working on 2 placers, while 1 contractor was involved in 2017.  During the reporting period, the Company produced 62.7 kg (2,015 oz) of alluvial gold compared to 41.2 kg (1,324 oz) produced in the previous period.  Production at Solcocon in July was interrupted by heavy rainfall, which has led to widespread flooding in the Zabaikalsky region.  Despite growth in production in Q3 2018 as compared to Q2 2018 (46.6 kg vs 16.1 kg) and continued mining in October as the weather was favourable, the alluvial production forecast of 150 kg (4,822 oz) will not be met.  2018 production is expected to reach 75 kg (2,411 oz).

    MELBOURNE, Australia, Oct. 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Opthea Limited (ASX:OPT), a developer of novel biologic therapies for the treatment of eye diseases, is pleased to provide an update on “Beyond anti-VEGF-A for Retinal Diseases,” a Company hosted symposium focused on next generation treatments for ‘back of the eye’ conditions, wet age-related macular degeneration (wet AMD) and diabetic macular edema (DME). The details of the event are as follows:

    · *Date:* Tuesday, November 6^th, 2018
    · *Location:* Parker New York Hotel (formerly Parker Meridian) in New York City
    · *Start time/duration:* 12:00-2:00PM EST
    · *Moderator:* Yigal Nochomovitz, Ph.D., Director of Biotechnology Research at Citigroup

    *The agenda will include:*

    · Presentations on the wet AMD and DME treatment landscapes and practice experiences by Dr. Arshad Khanani of Sierra Eye Associates and Dr. Rishi Singh of the Cleveland Clinic
    · Briefing on the unique mechanism of action and clinical experience with Opthea’s lead molecule OPT-302, by Dr. Nathan Steinle of California Retina Consultants
    · Interactive panel discussion moderated by Dr. Yigal Nochomovitz, in which audience participation will be encouraged

    “As an emerging company in ophthalmology, with Phase 2 clinical trials ongoing in both wet AMD and DME, it is a pleasure to host this symposium focused on understanding the importance of improving treatment solutions for these two debilitating retinal diseases,” commented Dr. Megan Baldwin, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Opthea. 

    To register for this event, please send an email request to with your name, company and phone number.  The Parker Hotel is located at 119 West 56^th Street, New York, N.Y. 10019-3318.

    *About OPT-302*

    OPT-302 is a soluble form of vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 3 (VEGFR-3) or ‘Trap’ molecule that blocks the activity of two proteins (VEGF-C and VEGF-D) that cause blood vessels to grow and leak, processes which contribute to the pathophysiology of retinal diseases.  Opthea is developing OPT-302 for use in combination with inhibitors of VEGF-A (eg. Lucentis^®/Eylea^®).  Combination therapy of OPT-302 and a VEGF-A inhibitor achieves more complete blockade of members of the VEGF family, blocks mechanisms contributing to sub-optimal response to selective VEGF-A inhibitors and has the potential to improve vision outcomes by more completely inhibiting the pathways involved in disease progression.

    Opthea has completed a Phase 1/2a clinical trial in the US investigating OPT-302 wet AMD patients as a monotherapy and in combination with Lucentis^®.  The trial was conducted under an FDA approved IND at 14 US clinical sites.  The purpose of the trial was to evaluate the safety, pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics of OPT-302 administered as monthly intravitreal injections for 3 months with and without Lucentis^® in patients with wet age related macular degeneration (AMD).  Of the 51 patients enrolled, 25 were treatment naïve and 26 had received prior intravitreal anti-VEGF-A therapy. 

    Further details on Opthea’s clinical trials can be found at, clinical trial identifiers:  NCT02543229 (Phase 1/2a wet AMD); NCT03345082 (Phase 2b wet AMD) and NCT03397264 (Phase 1b/2a DME).  Additional information on Opthea’s technology and clinical trials can found on Opthea’s website

    *About Wet AMD and DME*

    Wet (neovascular) age-related macular degeneration, or wet AMD, is a disease characterised by the loss of vision of the middle of the visual field caused by degeneration of the central portion of the retina (the macula).  Abnormal growth of blood vessels below the retina, and the leakage of fluid and protein from the vessels, causes retinal degeneration and leads to severe and rapid loss of vision. Wet AMD is the leading cause of blindness in the developed world in individuals aged 50 years or older.  The prevalence of AMD is increasing annually as the population ages. Without treatment, wet AMD patients often experience a chronic, rapid decline in visual acuity and increase in retinal fluid. 

    DME is the leading cause of blindness in diabetics and is estimated to affect approximately 2 million people globally^1,2,3.  Chronically elevated blood glucose levels in Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics can lead to inflammation, vascular dysfunction and hypoxia, causing upregulation of members of the VEGF family of growth factors.  VEGFs, including VEGF-A and VEGF-C, stimulate vascular permeability or vascular leakage, leading to fluid accumulation in the macula at the back of the eye and retinal thickening which affects vision.  Existing standard of care treatments for DME are limited and include inhibitors of VEGF-A (Lucentis^®, Eylea^®), steroids and laser therapy.  Despite these treatments, many patients remain refractory and have a sub-optimal response to therapy with persistent fluid and impaired vision.  OPT-302 blocks VEGF-C and VEGF-D, which cause vessels to grow and leak.  Used in combination with a VEGF-A inhibitor, OPT-302 has the potential to improve clinical outcomes in DME patients.

    Existing standard of care treatments for DME and wet AMD include agents that inhibit VEGF-A, but not VEGF-C or VEGF-D.  Sales of the drug Lucentis^® (Roche/Novartis), which targets VEGF-A, were over $US3.4BN in 2017. Sales of Eylea^® (Regeneron/Bayer), which also targets VEGF-A but not VEGF-C/-D were over $US5.9BN in 2017.  Many patients receiving Lucentis^®/Eylea^® are classified as non-responders or ‘poor’ responders and do not experience a significant gain in vision and/or have persistent retinal vascular leakage. There is great opportunity to improve patient responses by targeting more than one factor involved in disease progression.  Existing therapies, such as Lucentis^® and Eylea^®, target VEGF-A that promotes blood vessel growth and leakage through its receptor VEGFR-2.  VEGF-C can also induce angiogenesis and vessel leakage through the same receptor as well as through an independent pathway.  Combined inhibition of VEGF-A and VEGF-C/-D, has the potential to improve patient response by more effective inhibition of the pathways involved in disease progression.

    *About Opthea Limited*

    Opthea (ASX:OPT) is a biologics drug developer focusing on ophthalmic disease therapies. It controls exclusive worldwide rights to a significant intellectual property portfolio around Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF)-C, VEGF-D and VEGFR-3. Opthea’s intellectual property is held within its wholly-owned subsidiary Vegenics Pty Ltd.  The applications for the VEGF technology, which functions in regulating blood and lymphatic vessel growth, are substantial and broad.  Opthea’s product development programs are focused on developing OPT-302 (formerly VGX-300, soluble VEGFR-3) for ‘back of the eye’ disease such as wet age-related macular degeneration (wet AMD) and diabetic macular edema (DME).

    *Inherent risks of Investment in Biotechnology Companies*

    There are a number of inherent risks associated with the development of pharmaceutical products to a marketable stage. The lengthy clinical trial process is designed to assess the safety and efficacy of a drug prior to commercialisation and a significant proportion of drugs fail one or both of these criteria. Other risks include uncertainty of patent protection and proprietary rights, whether patent applications and issued patents will offer adequate protection to enable product development, the obtaining of necessary drug regulatory authority approvals and difficulties caused by the rapid advancements in technology.  Companies such as Opthea are dependent on the success of their research and development projects and on the ability to attract funding to support these activities.  Investment in research and development projects cannot be assessed on the same fundamentals as trading and manufacturing enterprises.  Thus investment in companies specialising in drug development must be regarded as highly speculative. Opthea strongly recommends that professional investment advice be sought prior to such investments.

    *Forward-looking statements*

    Certain statements in this ASX announcement may contain forward-looking statements regarding Company business and the therapeutic and commercial potential of its technologies and products in development.  Any statement describing Company goals, expectations, intentions or beliefs is a forward-looking statement and should be considered an at-risk statement.  Such statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties, particularly those risks or uncertainties inherent in the process of developing technology and in the process of discovering, developing and commercialising drugs that can be proven to be safe and effective for use as human therapeutics, and in the endeavour of building a business around such products and services.  Opthea undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise.  Actual results could differ materially from those discussed in this ASX announcement.

    · *Many foreign financial institutions are frustrated — like many UK businesses — by the lack of any real clarity over what sort of Brexit the UK will actually achieve when the Article 50 period runs out in March next year.*

    Australian banks with UK operations are beginning to put in motion plans to shift staff and other assets out of London as the possibility of a no-deal Brexit looms large in their thoughts.

    According to a story from the Financial Times on Monday, Australia's largest bank by assets, Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA), has set in motion plans to shift 50 staff from London to the Dutch capital, Amsterdam, and has applied for a banking licence in the country.

    Those staff will be focused on the bank's European "passporting" operations — the system by which banks are able to operate across EU borders while possessing just a single banking licence. The financial passport is linked strongly to membership of the European Single Market, and the UK will lose its passporting rights as a result.

    Commonwealth Bank said on Monday that its plan to shift staff to Amsterdam is being put in place "to ensure we can continue to provide the best service to our customers, while limiting disruption to existing business and our employees.

    While Commonwealth Bank is the latest bank to pull the trigger on moving staff, other Australian lenders are also shifting some capacity away from the UK, with investment bank Macquarie saying in May that it plans to expand its operations in Dublin, Ireland as a protection from Brexit. Westpac and ANZ are also shifting some operations to continental Europe.

    Many foreign financial institutions are frustrated — like many UK businesses — by the lack of any real clarity over what sort of Brexit the UK will actually achieve when the Article 50 period runs out in March next year.

    The British government remains adamant that it will strike a deal, and says one is 95% complete, but the exact shape of that deal isn't entirely clear. There are also lingering fears that negotiations could collapse at any moment, leaving the UK facing down a no deal Brexit, seen by the businesses, and the financial sector in particular, as the worst possible outcome.

    No deal would be particularly catastrophic for banks and other financial institutions because of the highly internationalized nature of the sector, which sees hundreds of billions of dollars flow across borders every single day.

    Australian lenders are not alone in their desire for clarity. While most of the attention around post-Brexit job relocations out of the City has focused on American and European lenders, banks from around the world using London as a hub for their EU business have been made to decide what to do post Brexit, with Japanese banks particularly active in moving staff out of the UK.

    Sumitomo Mitsui, MUFJ, Daiwa Securities, and Nomura are among the Japanese banks with plans in motion to shift some of their staff and physical operations out of the UK, generally to Frankfurt, after Brexit.
