    DroneShield Limited (ASX:DRO) (OTCMKTS:DRSHF) ("DRO" or the "Company") is pleased to offer eligible shareholders the opportunity to apply for new, fully-paid ordinary shares ("Shares") in the Company ("Offer") under a Share Purchase Plan (the "SPP"). The Company intends to raise approximately $750,000 under the SPP.

    Funds raised under the SPP will be used towards expansion of the Company's sales and marketing efforts, further development of and improvements to products to accommodate specific customer requirements and general working capital.

    The SPP provides the opportunity for eligible shareholders to subscribe for up to $15,000 worth of Shares (under a range of amounts) each, without incurring brokerage or other transaction costs.

    Patersons Securities Limited ("Lead Manager") has agreed to act as the lead manager. In the event that Eligible Shareholders do not subscribe for Shares under the Plan to the amount of $750,000, the Lead Manager may place the resultant shortfall to its clients provided the shortfall does not exceed the placement capacity of the Company pursuant to ASX Listing Rules 7.1 and 7.1A ("Shortfall Placement"). If total applications from Eligible Shareholders under the Plan exceed $750,000, the directors of the Company may, in their absolute discretion, accept or scale-back all applications on an equitable basis. Directors may also, in their absolute discretion, decide to increase acceptances in the event of oversubscriptions and increase the size of the SPP (subject to compliance with the Corporations Act and ASX Listing Rules). The SPP is not underwritten.

    The Shares under the SPP will be issued at A$0.14 per Share, representing a 16% discount to the volume-weighted average market price ("VWAP") for the Shares calculated over the last 5 days on which sales in the Shares were recorded before the announcement of the SPP.

    The Directors have determined that offers under the SPP will be made to eligible shareholders, being those who are the registered holders of Shares as at 7:00pm (Sydney time) on 16 October 2018 ("Record Date"), and whose address in the Company's register is in Australia or New Zealand.

    The Company may, in consultation with the Lead Manager, elect to undertake a placement of additional shares at the same price as those under the SPP ("Top-Up Placement"). The maximum number of Shares that may be issued under the Top-Up Placement is equal to the Company's then placement capacity under ASX Listing Rules 7.1 and 7.1A which is currently 42,489,055 Shares, subject to compliance with the ASX Listing Rules.

    The Lead Manager will be entitled to a fee of 6% of the gross amount placed by the Lead Manager under the Shortfall Placement and the Top-Up Placement, a management fee of $7,500 plus one option to acquire a share (exercisable at $0.22 on or before 14 June 2019 each) for every four shares placed by the Lead Manager.

    Oleg Vornik, DroneShield's CEO, commented: "The pace of the Company's sales and marketing, and customers' adoption of the Company's products, globally, has accelerated substantially, with three orders for use by three governments - in Asia, Latin America and the West - received by DroneShield just in the recent two weeks. This follows a $3.2 million order for use by a Middle Eastern Ministry of Defence, which was approved by the US regulator last month. The Company is currently in a number of tender and other sales processes with a number of customers internationally. The proceeds of the SPP will assist the Company with an expansion of its marketing efforts as well as its working capital requirements while these tenders and sales processes run their course."

    Full details can be found in the accompanying offer document to shareholders, the SPP terms and conditions and the Application Form for eligible shareholders.

    White Rock Minerals Ltd (ASX:WRM) provides the Company's Quarterly Activities Report.

    Red Mountain Zinc VMS Project Highlights

    The Company continued extensive on-ground exploration activities at its 100% owned Red Mountain high-grade zinc - silver - lead - gold volcanogenic massive sulphide ("VMS") Project in Alaska. Field activities included simultaneous diamond drilling, ground CSAMT geophysics, geological reconnaissance mapping and surface geochemical sampling programs. The 2018 field program concluded in September as planned. Exploration program highlights for 2018 include:

    - Discovery and successful drill testing of the new Hunter prospect massive sulphide mineralisation with 1.4m @ 17.4% Zn, 3.9% Pb, 90g/t Ag & 1.6% Cu for 25.8% ZnEq(see Note 1 below) (HR18-01)(see Note 2 below). This discovery remains open east and west and down dip with massive sulphide mapped for over 500 metres along strike on the surface.

    - Best drill intersection in the history of this project at the West Tundra deposit with 3.5m @ 15.1% Zn, 6.7% Pb, 518g/t Ag, 2.1g/t Au and 0.2% Cu for 35.2% ZnEq(see Note 1 below) (WT18-28)(see Note 3 below).

    - Best drill intersection in the history of this project into the Discovery Lens at the Dry Creek deposit with 4.7m @ 19.5% Zn, 7.8% Pb, 466g/t Ag, 6.9g/t Au and 1.5% Cu for 49.7% ZnEq(see Note 1 below) (DC18-79)(see Note 4 below).

    - Down dip extension of the Fosters Lens at the Dry Creek deposit achieved with 4.3m @ 4.8% Zn, 2.3% Pb, 1,435g/t Ag, 2.2g/t Au and 0.5% Cu for 43.2% ZnEq(see Note 1 below) (DC18-77)(see Note 4 below) and remaining open down dip.

    - Completion of a detailed regional stream sediment program across the majority of the Company's 143km2 strategic tenement package to assist in focusing follow-up work for the 2019 field exploration program.

    o The field crews collected 435 stream samples, 1,835 soil samples and 330 rock chips samples across the company's tenement holding. Stream samples are awaiting assaying.

    - Successful application of portable XRF analysis of soil samples to deliver rapid target generation.

    - Successful orientation ground geophysics across known mineralisation with the CSAMT geophysics technique accurately identifying massive sulphide mineralisation at Dry Creek and West Tundra enabling the technique to be a rapid reconnaissance tool for identifying drill targets within zones of anomalous geochemistry and favourable stratigraphy.

    o The CSAMT geophysics crew acquired 40 line kms of new data along strike of the Dry Creek and West Tundra VMS deposits. This work assisted to identify follow-up drill targets.

    - A total of 24 drill holes for 4,111 metres of diamond core drilling was completed during 2018. The drill rig has been demobilised and stored at the camp site ready for rapid re-mobilisation in 2019.

    The successful progress of this exploration program resulted in the signing of a cornerstone investment and strategic relationship agreement with Sandfire Resources NL (ASX:SFR) (Sandfire). The company welcomed Sandfire as a strategic partner and cornerstone investor that shares White Rock's vision for the exploration and development of the Red Mountain Project. Securing a high-quality partner with world leading expertise in the exploration and development of base metals projects is a strong endorsement to the quality and potential of White Rock's globally significant high-grade zinc VMS Red Mountain Project.

    Notes:

    1 ZnEq = Zinc equivalent grades are estimated using long-term broker consensus estimates compiled by RFC Ambrian as at 20 March 2017 adjusted for recoveries from historical metallurgical test work and calculated with the formula: ZnEq =100 x [(Zn% x 2,206.7 x 0.9) + (Pb% x 1,922 x 0.75) + (Cu% x 6,274 x 0.70) + (Ag g/t x (19.68/31.1035) x 0.70) + (Au g/t x (1,227/31.1035) x 0.80)] / (2,206.7 x 0.9). White Rock is of the opinion that all elements included in the metal equivalent calculation have reasonable potential to be recovered and sold.

    Your board is writing to you today with an offer to participate in a Share Purchase Plan ("SPP" or "Plan") which entitles Eligible Shareholders (defined below) to purchase new shares in DroneShield Limited ("DRO" or the "Company" or "DroneShield") (ASX:DRO) (OTCMKTS:DRSHF) at the price of $0.14 per share, up to the value of $15,000 each. The Company intends to raise approximately $750,000 under the Plan.

    Patersons Securities Limited ("Lead Manager") has agreed to act as the lead manager. In the event that Eligible Shareholders do not subscribe for Shares under the Plan to the amount of $750,000, the Lead Manager may place the resultant shortfall to its clients provided the shortfall does not exceed the placement capacity of the Company pursuant to ASX Listing Rules 7.1 and 7.1A ("Shortfall Placement"). If total applications from Eligible Shareholders under the Plan exceed $750,000, the directors of the Company may, in their absolute discretion, accept or scale-back all applications on an equitable basis. Directors may also, in their absolute discretion, decide to increase acceptances in the event of oversubscriptions and increase the size of the Plan (subject to compliance with the Corporations Act and ASX Listing Rules).

    In addition to the Plan, DroneShield may, in consultation with the Lead Manager, elect to undertake a placement of additional shares at the same price as the shares offered under the Plan ("Top-Up Placement"). The maximum number of shares that may be issued under the Top-Up Placement would be equal to the Company's then placement capacity pursuant to ASX Listing Rules 7.1 and 7.1A (which is currently 42,489,055 Shares), subject to compliance with the ASX Listing Rules.

    The Lead Manager will be entitled to a fee of 6% of the gross amount placed by the Lead Manager under the Shortfall Placement and the Top-Up Placement, a management fee of $7,500 plus one option to acquire a share (exercisable at $0.22 on or before 14 June 2019 each) for every four shares placed by the Lead Manager.

    The Board believes that the funds from the SPP will assist the Company with an expansion of its marketing efforts globally, as well as its working capital requirements while the multiple governmental tenders and other product sales processes in which the Company is participating internationally run their course.

    Recent Progress

    There has been a proliferation of cheap commercial off-the-shelf drones and an exponential increase in their use for nepharious purposes (including terrorist attacks, attacks on heads of state, use by non-state actors on the battlefield and unlawful use around airports, critical infrastructure, prisons, stadiums, events, commercial venues and VIPs). Among others, recent reports have included:

    - October 2018: Christopher Wray, the Director of the FBI stated the following in written testimony to the U.S. Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee: "The FBI assesses that, given their retail availability, lack of verified identification requirement to procure, general ease of use, and prior use overseas, UAS [drones] will be used to facilitate an attack in the United States against a vulnerable target, such as a mass gathering."

    - September 2018: Passenger jet carrying 240 people nearly hit a drone at 15,000ft in the UK airspace

    - August 2018: Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro was attacked by weaponised drones during a live televised speech in Caracas

    - May 2018: FBI hostage rescue team was reported to have been attacked by a swarm of drones during a hostage raid

    - February 2018: Drone "dive bombed" a passenger jet above Las Vegas

    - January 2018: Homemade drones bombed a Russian Airbase in Syria

    - November 2017: The U.S. Department of Homeland Security issued a terror bulletin focusing on the threat of weaponised drones

    - November 2017: A drone struck an Aerolinas Argentinas passenger Boeing on final approach to Buenos Aires Airport in Argentina, and the passenger jet sustained damage

    - October 2017: Footage uploaded to YouTube reportedly showed an armed ISIS drone destroying an arms depot in northern Syria

    The drone detection and interdiction industry is in its nascent stages. It did not exist until several years ago, and governments did not commence to allocate funding to this industry until recently. However, with the substantial increase in malicious drone activities, virtually every government now concerns itself with how to protect its infrastructure and people against such activities.

    DroneShield is at the forefront of this effort. The Company has built on the 2017 launches of its cutting-edge products, and has made substantial progress, in recent months. This includes the following.

    - A June 2018 $3.2 million order for 70 units of DroneGun TacticalTM for use by a substantial Middle Eastern Ministry of Defence, approved by the U.S. regulator in September 2018

    - An October 2018 order for multiple units of DroneGun TacticalTM for use by a major Asian government agency

    - An October 2018 Central American government order for DroneSentryTM and DroneGun TacticalTM units

    - Deployment at 2018 Winter Olympic Games in South Korea

    - Deployment at 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia

    - Deployment at 2018 ASEAN Summit in Sydney

    - Deployment at the United States Marine Corps / United States Navy 2018 Urban 5th Generation Marine Exploration and Experimentation Exercise (U5G 2018)

    - Sale of DroneGunsTM to the Paraguayan military

    - Placing DroneShield products on the United States GSA Schedule, making them available to U.S. governmental users on an off-the-shelf basis

    - DroneGun TacticalTM certification for human exposure

    - United States / Canada DD2345 Certification

    - Assignment of NATO Stock Number for DroneGunTM

    - Partnership with ISI for an on-vehicle counterdrone solution

    - Safety for deployment at airports certification

    - Setup and commencement of operation of the European Hub

    - Participation at numerous high profile events such as AUSA, Eurosatory and DSA (with support of Team Defence Australia), Land Forces, SOFWERX Thunderdrone, FIDAE, Modern Day Marine and others

    - Receipt of number of grants, awards and recognition by Company or its staff, including R&D Tax Incentive Grant, NSW Export Awards Finalist, 2018 Young Innovator Award, and SME Innovation Grant

    - Launch of multiple additional products, based on end-user feedback

    Through its network of approximately 60 distributors in approximately 50 countries, DroneShield is capitalising on its recent sales successes and its reputation as a leader in the space, by pursuing dozens of contracts ranging in size from tens of thousands of dollars to tens of millions of dollars each. (see Note below)

    Funds raised under the SPP will be used towards expansion of the Company's sales and marketing efforts, further development of and improvements to products to accommodate specific customer requirements and general working capital.

    All of the shareholder directors intend to participate personally in the SPP as a sign of confidence in the Company.

    Please refer to the Company's ASX platform (ASX:DRO) or www.droneshield.com for further details with respect to the Company's operations. The Company's investor presentation is enclosed.

    Your continuing support is greatly appreciated.

    Note: Necessarily, not all (and there can be no assurance that any) of the Company's sales opportunities will result in sales.

    Blackham Resources Limited (ASX:BLK) (OTCMKTS:BKHRF) (Blackham or the Company) is pleased to advise it has commenced open pit mining at Wiluna of its recently defined free milling ore. It has been 10 years since open pit mining last took place at the Wiluna Mine.

    Highlights

    - Wiluna open pit mining commences in free milling ore from surface

    - Wiluna average ore grades higher than the Matilda ore

    - In line with the mine plan adopted at the start of the year, the remaining open pits at Matilda will be mined concurrently with the Wiluna open pits for the rest of this financial year

    - Processing of higher grade Wiluna ore will take place from Oct'18

    - All the Wiluna open pits are located within 3kms of the plant, significantly lowering haulage costs

    - Grade control and mining of free milling pits will significantly de-risk the larger sulphide pits prior to re-commissioning the sulphide circuit

    Successful drilling programmes totalling 100,000m over the last 18 months have successfully delineated gold resources of 18.6Mt @ 2.52g/t for 1.50Moz. The free milling resources total 5.1Mt @ 1.43g/t for 236koz (96% indicated).

    Drilling since Mar'18 has focused on targeting shallow free milling mineralisation close to plant. Generally, oxide and transitional ore in the top 60-80m has been oxidised and is free milling. Metallurgical results averaged leach recoveries on the oxide and transitional ores of 90.8% and 84.3% after 24 hours.

    Wiluna open pit probable reserves as at 30 June 2017 were 669,000oz (7.7Mt @ 2.7g/t Au). Reserves for the Matilda-Wiluna Operation were last estimated as at 30 June 2017 and are currently being re-estimated.

    Latest reserves for the Wiluna Open Pits are in the process of being finalised and will be published in the near future.

    Recommencement of mining at the Wiluna Mine is expected to increase plant feed grade, reduce haulage costs and significantly reduces mine sequencing risks due to more mining areas. Mining of the Wiluna free milling pits will significantly reduce both geological and mining risks associated with the larger sulphide pits prior to recommissioning the Wiluna plants sulphide circuit.

    PlayUp is gearing up to deliver the world's first online gaming ecosystem with a native token and exchange on December 19th. The PlayChip token, currently in use and available to their user base of over 1,000,000, will be one of the world's first to have genuine utility value prior to its listing date.

    The PlayChip Ecosystem consists of eight online gaming platforms. The combined turnover and user numbers of these platforms positions the PlayChip as one of the biggest token sales of year.

    "Many ICOs take months, even years, to deliver product following their token sale. Ours is live today and being used by a million people," said PlayUp CMO Ryan Bowman.

    Demand for PlayChips has continued to grow over its pre-sale. In September the company launched PlayUp Bet, the world's first crypto-only gaming platform with a native token, to huge fanfare. The platform trades in the beta-version of the PlayChip, which is pegged to a value of US$0.01. PlayUp Bet has seen over 10,000 new user sign ups and turned over $1,000,000 in PlayChips since its launch.

    The heavy demand for PlayChips is expected to skyrocket following the December listing, when large PlayChip promotions with significant prize pools will be run across all eight platforms of the entire PlayChip Ecosystem. The demand for PlayChips is expected to help mitigate the volatile price fluctuations sometimes seen in emerging cryptocurrencies.

    The Australian company has acquired six gaming platforms over the course of 2018 to add to its growing ecosystem, as well as being registered by AUSTRAC as a Digital Currency Service Provider. The range of platforms in the PlayChip Ecosystem guarantees the utility value of the token - something very rare in the world of ICOs, while the registration paves the way for the establishment of the PlayXchange, which will facilitate instant purchasing and cashing out of PlayChips.

    The PlayXchange is the key to the accessibility of the project for those unfamiliar with cryptocurrency, according to PlayUp CEO Daniel Simic.

    "We are pleased to be at the forefront of the blockchain revolution in online gaming, but the truth is there are a lot of people who know very little about it and the benefits it will bring," he said.

    "The PlayXchange will allow our users to track the value of their tokens against a number of fiat and cryptocurrencies, and exchange them in a seamless, user-friendly experience."

    "We are big believers that people should not have to adapt to technology. Technology should be accessible to people in a medium that can be understood."

    The exchange will allow for the buying and selling of PlayChips as well as a number of other leading fiat and crypto currencies. Following KYC onboarding the PlayXchange has the potential to be a top 20 exchange by user number, given the current PlayChip Ecosystem user numbers. Furthermore, the platform will be used to post real-time transaction updates in the PlayChips longer term goal to provide Provably Fair Gaming, where the entirety of the Ecosystems transaction load can be carried out by a blockchain.

    The PlayChip is still in its pre-sale with tokens available at http://www.playchip.global

    About PlayChip

    PlayChip is the Universal Gaming Token for sports betting, gaming, fantasy sports, and eSports, at the centre of an incentivised, blockchain-enabled sports community and gaming ecosystem. The PlayChip Ecosystem consists of seven independent partner platforms with more than a million users across over 70 countries. The PlayChip ecosystem is designed to be secure, scalable, simple to use, and fun, as well as include features to incorporate provable fairness into PlayChip transactions and the partnered gaming platforms, making it the gaming token of choice around the globe.

    Deep Yellow Limited (ASX:DYL) (OTCMKTS:DYLLF) (Deep Yellow) is pleased to announce continued encouraging drilling results on EPL3497 where the recently discovered continuous mineralisation at the Tumas 1 East palaeochannel area (as announced 3 October 2018) has now been further extended and has also identified a new mineralised channel to the north. Broad exploration drilling was also conducted on the smaller tributaries south of the main mineralised tributary which did not identify significant mineralisation. This EPL is held by Reptile Uranium Namibia (Pty) Ltd, part of the group of companies wholly owned by Deep Yellow.

    HIGHLIGHTS

    - Ongoing exploration drilling has extended the Tumas 1 East (Tail 1 tributary) uranium discovery by a further 1.1km

    o The overall Tail 1 tributary drilling returned mineralisation from 86 of 121 holes drilled - a 71% success rate of >100ppm eU3O8 over 1m

    o 5-17m thick, near-surface continuous mineralisation defined along 4.6km strike length

    - Best intersections include:

    o TA100 17m at 329 ppm eU3O8 from surface

    o TA120 12m at 407 ppm eU3O8 from surface

    o TA120 7m at 499 ppm eU3O8 from 4m

    - Mineralisation is calcrete-associated hosted within palaeochannels, similar to the Langer Heinrich uranium mine located 30km to the north

    In the first 2 weeks of October (since the last drilling update announcement) another 50 RC holes for 563m have been completed increasing the extent of the newly identified mineralised channel east of Tumas 1. Mineralisation definition work will continue in this area longer than originally planned before returning to resource drilling over the highly prospective western extension of Tumas 3. Figure 1 (see link below) shows the paleochannel system and prospect locations.

    Exploration drilling upstream of Tumas 1 East has now extended the mineralisation by 1.1km and the total length of mineralised channel in the main tributary, named Tail 1, now occurs over a 4.6km length.

    Up to 12 October 2018 a total of 121 holes have been drilled for 1,561m in the Tail 1 area with 26 RC holes for 362m drilled since last reported. These focussed on Tails 1, 2, 3 and the newly discovered Tail 4. Drill spacings vary from 50 to 100m along lines 200 to 800m apart.

    Of the 121 holes drilled at Tail 1, 86 have now returned positive results of more than 100ppm eU3O8 over 1m. This reflects a 71% success rate. Average grades at a 100 ppm eU3O8 cut-off are 315ppm and average thickness is close to 6m.

    The exploration drilling on the main tributary (Tail 1, see Fig. 2 in link below) is now completed and has outlined a uranium rich channel 4.6km in strike length showing continuous calcrete uranium mineralisation. Channel widths range from 200m to 900m. The mineralisation is located at shallow depth between 0 to 17m below surface. Except for localised hot spots, large parts of this mineralisation do not show any surface radiometric expression.

    A drill line across Tail 1 was extended to the north and identified uranium mineralisation greater than 100ppm eU3O8 over 1m in 4 of 5 holes in a new tributary, Tail 4 (see Fig 2). This could add an additional 4km of untested prospective palaeochannel to this target area.

    As previously reported, photo and satellite image interpretation had identified further untested channels to the south (Tails 2 and 3 on Fig 2). Exploration drilling testing these tributary channels totalling 24 RC holes and 201m did not identify significant mineralisation in these channels.

    Drill hole locations are shown in Figure 2(see link below). Figure 3 (see link below) shows a drill cross-section highlighting the continuity and thickness of the mineralisation. Figure 4 (see link below) shows a drill cross-section extending from the main tributary into one of the northern untested channels (Tail 4).

    Equivalent uranium oxide (eU3O8) values as reported here have been determined by Deep Yellow personnel and these will be validated by a competent geophysicist for resource estimation purposes. The equivalent uranium values are based on down-hole radiometric gamma logging carried out by a fully calibrated Aus Log gamma logging system.

    The ongoing drilling is aimed at defining the extent of the mineralised system occurring in the Tumas 1 East area before infill drilling for resource definition is commenced.

    Appendix 1, Table 1 (see link below) lists the 26 exploration drilling holes at Tumas East returning uranium intersections above cut-off and showing equivalent uranium values in ppm and thickness with hole depth and coordinates provided. Table 2 in Appendix 1 (see link below) lists the 50 drill holes completed from 30 September to 12 October 2018 which are the subject of this release.

    Analysis

    The results of the ongoing exploration in the Tumas 1 East region continue to be very promising. The current drilling has now defined the extent of the new continuous zone of mineralisation associated with the eastern extension of Tumas 1 in the Tail 1 tributary. As importantly new uranium mineralisation in the north of tributary paleochannel system in the Tumas East area has opened up the potential for further mineralisation in the adjacent Tail 4 tributary.

    The known mineralisation at Tumas 1 is now been extended by 4.6km in the Tumas 1 East zone and is demonstrating the potential for discovery of further additions to the mineralisation. The mineralisation expected to be found in tributary channels entering the main channel from the north-east make this a priority region for upgrade of the overall resource base associated with these highly fertile palaeochannels. As previously shown, the uranium mineralisation is not confined to one simple, single channel but rather is associated with a complex palaeodrainage system containing several channels.

    The work in the Tumas 1 East area is clearly showing potential to delineate further mineralisation in these newly defined paleochannels occurring within the Reptile Project area. This shallow occurring calcrete-associated uranium mineralisation with its continuous nature is expected to add notably to the overall uranium resource base and is in addition to what was expected to be found in the Tumas 3 West area.

    HIGHLIGHTS

    - The Abbotts Project comprises 13 granted tenements that cover approximately 450 square kilometres

    - Abbotts surrounds and abuts Thundelarra's Garden Gully Project

    - Combined project area approximates 530 square kilometres

    - Acquisition more than quadruples the aggregate strike extent of the prospective target settings

    - Consideration: 11 million Thundelarra shares

    The consideration shares will be issued within 5 days of Completion, which is conditional on obtaining various regulatory approvals and third party consents. This process is underway.

    Garden Gully and Abbotts are located about 20 kilometres north-west of the town of Meekatharra, a well-established and proven gold endowment centre in Western Australia's Murchison Province that has delivered in excess of seven million ounces of gold production to date. There are two operational gold plants within 30 kilometres' trucking distance. Thundelarra will undertake a detailed review of all the Doray exploration data and incorporate the information into the current geological model that has been developed around the Crown Prince and other Garden Gully prospects.

    Thundelarra's Chairman, Phil Crabb, commented:

    "The acquisition of this ground is extremely significant for Thundelarra. It means that the Company now controls what we believe to be the last large piece of remnant greenstone belt in the Yilgarn craton. History shows that these geological settings have the potential to deliver spectacular results.

    Systematic exploration, using the latest geophysical and exploration techniques to explore beneath the surface cover and test for possible repetitions of Crown Prince, means that there are exciting times ahead for our shareholders."

    Alt Resources Ltd (ASX:ARS) (Alt or 'the Company') is pleased to provide an update to the Bottle Creek Mineral Resource estimate for the Emu and Southwark deposits. A second round of RC drilling testing extensions to the north and south of the Emu deposit, as well as laterite-hosted mineralisation at Southwark, has provided an additional 50,000 oz Au and 246,000 oz Ag. This brings the total for Alt's Bottle Creek Gold Project to 2.6Mt @ 1.9 g/t Au, for 160,000 oz Au (see Table 1 in link below), including 2.5Mt @ 10.7 g/t Ag for 900,000 oz Ag.

    HIGHLIGHTS:

    - Extended JORC resource estimate for Emu and Southwark extensions at Bottle Creek adds 50,000 oz Au and 250,000 oz Ag

    - Bottle Creek JORC resource estimate is now 2.6Mt @ 1.9 g/t Au, for 160,000 oz Au

    - Greater Mt Ida Project combined resource inventory now stands at 3.9Mt @ 2.07 g/t Au for 257,000 oz Au and 900,000 oz Ag

    - Measured + Indicated Resource for the global Mt Ida Project is 132,000 oz Au

    - The average discovery cost over the Bottle Creek project is now $7.80 per ounce

    - Resource upgrade includes 1,772 metres of new RC drilling defining extensions to the south and north of the Emu deposit

    - Third stage RC drilling has commenced at VB and Boags, testing mineralisation potential immediately along strike of the historical pits

    - Mine planning, pit optimisation and metallurgical study underway, ahead of Pre-Feasibility Study

    Alt published the Maiden JORC Resource estimate for Bottle Creek on the 16th August 2018(see Note 1 below). The current upgrade constitutes an expansion of Alt's initial Bottle Creek Resource and thereby also expands Alt's overall inventory for the larger Mt Ida Gold Project. The Mt Ida Gold Project is rapidly evolving into a promising gold hub, with multiple exploration and mining targets throughout the Company's landholding.

    In combination with existing mineral resources within the Mt Ida Gold Project, at the Quinns and Mt Ida South projects, Alt's combined mineral resource Inventory now stands at 3.9 Mt @ 2.07 g/t Au, for 257,000 oz Au(see Note 2 below). See Appendix 1 (see link below) for a summary of the existing Mt Ida Project resources.

    The upgraded resource estimate includes 1,772 m new RC drilling immediately to the south and north of the Emu deposit (see Figure 1 in link below). The north Emu extension fills in the gap between Emu and Southwark and proves continuity between the two deposits. This is a significant advance in development of the Bottle Creek Project and will impact the scope of ongoing pit optimisation and mine planning studies.

    Furthermore, Alt has ongoing drilling programs either completed or underway at the Cascade deposit, northward extensions of the Southwark deposit and defining a zone of surficial laterite-hosted gold mineralisation. Assay results from this additional drilling will be incorporated into a further resource upgrade once the programs are complete.

    Alt's strong growth strategy, and commitment to the development and expansion of the Bottle Creek Project are strongly supported by the new resource upgrade and ongoing exploration activity.

    Alt CEO, James Anderson, commented, "We have produced this small resource upgrade at Bottle Creek with the intent to demonstrate the cost-effectiveness of resource drilling at Bottle Creek. This resource upgrade has been produced from an additional 29 drill holes at a cost under $5.00 per resource ounce, and with a greatly reduced overall average cost per resource ounce down to $7.80. Bottle creek is returning around 10,000 oz gold and 56,000 oz silver per 100 metres of strike drilled and we have only drilled 1,600 metres of the 11 kilometres of strike to date. We now have a project wide global resource of 257,000 oz gold and 900,000 oz silver at Mt Ida and what I see as a clear pathway to reaching a critical mass through continued drilling We aim to continue to build the resource over the next 12 months to a level that will warrant development of a plant at Bottle Creek."

    Mineral Resource Estimate

    Project Location and Geology

    The Bottle Creek Gold Project lies 100 km north east of Menzies in the Mt Ida gold belt (see Figure 2 in link below). The gold mine is located on the northern extremity of the Mt Ida-Ularring greenstone belt extending from Davyhurst to Mt Alexander (see Figure 2 in link below). The Ularring greenstone belt forms the western part of the Norseman-Wiluna Province of the Yilgarn Craton. The location of mineralisation and local geology is shown in Figure 3(see link below). Locally, gold and silver mineralisation is hosted in carbonaceous, sulphidic shales, within a larger package of interbedded basaltic volcanics, sediments and ultramafic rocks. The area is tightly folded and metamorphosed, with intrusion of younger dolerite dykes (Robertson, 2003). Mineralisation at Bottle Creek occurs over a strike length of 11km, running north-west-south east and is interpreted to be nearly vertical, to steeply west-dipping.

    Bottle Creek Drilling and Assay Summary

    Alt commenced RC drilling at Bottle Creek in March 2018, completing a first phase program of 11,692 m (140 drillholes) in May 2018. The second phase of drilling was completed in July 2018, incorporating 1,772 m for 29 drillholes. The second phase of drilling forms the basis of the updated component of the new JORC Mineral Resource for Bottle Creek. Full details of this drilling, including comprehensive reporting of assay results and intersections for all Alt drillholes used in the Resource have been previously reported. A listing of relevant ASX announcements is provided in Appendix 2(see link below).

    Alt's drilling at Bottle Creek extends for approximately 1.4 km north-north-west/south-south-east. The main mineralised zones at Southwark and Emu were historically drilled on 25 m spaced sections, with Alt's new drilling infilling the historical drill fence spacing to between 10 and 25 m. Within the Emu Extensions, historical drill fence spacing was 50 to 100 m. Similar to elsewhere, Alt's new drilling has infilled these areas to between 10 and 25 m drill fence spacing. Drillholes on the sections are 1 to 20 m apart. This density of drilling provides an excellent opportunity for constraint on geological and mineralisation interpretations.

    Bottle Creek Resource Estimation Upgrade

    Alt Resources employed the services of Jorvik Resources to undertake the upgrade to the JORC Mineral Resource Estimation for the Bottle Creek Gold Project. Jorvik Resources also completed the Maiden Bottle Creek Mineral Resource Estimation in August 2018. The updated Mineral Resource incorporates all second phase drilling data undertaken by Alt Resources up to the 30th July, 2018, as well as historical drilling conducted by Electrolytic Zinc Company and Norgold Ltd between 1985 and 1989. The combined drillhole dataset includes 62,397 metres of drilling. Table 1 (see link below) gives the summary Mineral Resource Estimate for Bottle Creek. Table 2 (see link below) gives a summary of the upgraded portion of the Mineral Resource.

    This Mineral Resource Estimate is an upgrade to the Maiden Resource for Alt Resources, published in August 20181. Bottle Creek is a brownfields project that has not been worked since 1989. The resource is reported in accordance with the guidelines of the 2012 Australasian Code for Reporting of Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves (JORC, 2012).

    Classification of the resource estimate, as described below, is based principally on data density, geological confidence criteria and representativeness of sampling. The in situ mineral resource is constrained by the mineralisation domain boundaries.

    Assumptions and Methodology

    This Mineral Resource estimate is based on a number of factors and assumptions:

    - All of the available drilling data was used to define and model the mineralised domains for Au.

    - Only Diamond, RC and Air Core drilling data was used for the Mineral Resource estimation. Historical RAB holes were not used in the Mineral Resource estimation due to sample quality.

    - The recent Alt drilling has had all collar positions surveyed. Topographic data was inferred from the surveyed collar positions. Historical drill hole collars were manually adjusted to match the surveyed drilling. The survey control for collar positions was considered adequate for the estimation of an Inferred resource.

    - The mineralised domains were interpreted from the drilling data by Alt using Micromine software. This string interpretation was modelled in 3D by Jorvik using Vulcan software. Mineralised domains and weathering surfaces were modelled and used to flag the density and grade sample data for statistical analysis and estimation.

    - A review of the quality assurance and quality control (QAQC) data was completed. The QAQC program included company standards, duplicate samples and blanks. Overall, data quality was deemed satisfactory for the current Mineral Resource classification.

    - Statistical and geostatistical analysis was carried out on drilling data composited to one metre downhole. This included variography to model spatial continuity in the geological domains.

    - A block model was constructed using 10 m x 10 m x 10 m parent cells covering the extent of the north and south Emu Extensions.

    - The Ordinary Kriging interpolation method was used for the estimation of Au using variogram parameters defined from the geostatistical analysis. Top cutting was used in selected domains to reduce the influence of outlier composite samples.

    - A subset of the Au data also has Ag assays. There is a poor correlation between Au and Ag. Ag was estimated into the model using Ordinary Kriging and the same parameters as those used for Au. Top cutting of Ag values was applied to selected domains.

    - Dry Bulk Density ("density") was assigned by material type. Density values were derived from measured values included in the drilling database.

    The mineralised envelope was wireframed using both geological logging information and assay data for Au (g/t). The Mineral Resource has been divided up into discrete deposits at the North and South Emu Extensions. Figure 5 (see link below) shows the interpreted wireframe model for mineralisation at the North and South Emu Extensions. The complete wireframe model for the entire deposit as drilled and modelled thus far (Southwark to Emu) is also shown.

    Mineral Resource Statement

    The resource estimates are classified in accordance with the Australasian Code for Reporting of Identified Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves (JORC, 2012).

    The Emu and Southwark Mineral Resource estimate was completed by Stephen Godfrey, Senior Resource Geologist with Jorvik Resources, who is a member of the Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy and a Member of the Australian Institute of Geoscientists. Mr Godfrey has sufficient and relevant experience in modelling and resource estimation to be considered a "Competent Person" as defined by the JORC Code (2012).

    The classification was considered appropriate on the basis of drill hole spacing, sample interval, geological interpretation and representativeness of all available assay data. The defined mineralisation within the north and south Emu extensions are classified as Inferred. Inconsistencies in the quality of the collar survey data lowers the confidence in the position of the mineralised zones and consequently the resource category.

    The resource is based on an Ordinary Kriging interpolated block model. The resource is subdivided by deposit, mineralised domains and material type. Table 2 (see link below) reports the Bottle Creek gold Mineral Resource at a 0.5 g/t Au lower cut off.

    Towards Pre-Feasibility

    Alt Resources is committed to advancing the Bottle Creek Gold Project towards development. A number of technical studies are currently underway to facilitate this goal, including mine planning and pit optimisation, as well as metallurgy.

    Consistent with the Corporate Strategy to fast track the Bottle Creek Project, Alt has commenced Metallurgical and Flowsheet Development to establish an operation capable of processing an initial ~500ktpa of ore with potential to expand in the future. The Company has engaged METS Engineering to review all historical documentation from the Bottle Creek gold plant and cost the Metallurgical Testwork and Flowsheet development.

    Alt has also engaged MineComp Kalgoorlie to commence the Mine Plan and Pit Optimisations for the pre-stripped Emu deposit and the Southwark deposit. On completion, the Mine Plan will be submitted to the Department to commence the approval process.

    Alt has focused on realising the Company's vision of expanding existing Mt Ida JORC Resources and making new discoveries in the Mt Ida Gold Belt. We are moving towards our goal of establishing a central gold production hub at the Bottle Creek mine site.

    Argentine-focused lithium exploration and project development company Lake Resources NL (ASX:LKE) has started drilling at the 100% owned Cauchari Lithium Brine Project (See Figure 1 in link below).

    - Drilling anticipated to show likely extension of high-grade lithium brines from adjoining proven lithium resources of Ganfeng Lithium (SHE:002460) /Lithium Americas and Orocobre/Advantage Lithium.

    - Second rig mobilised to drill pre-collar rotary holes to 100 metres to accelerate assay results.

    - Lake drilling four holes over 1,500 metres - first results end October/early November.

    A second drill rig (rotary rig) has been mobilised to drill pre-collar holes to 100 metres depth to assist the diamond rig through the upper gravels into the brine sequence. The rig is on-route to site and arrives this weekend. It will expedite the drill program in an effort to achieve earlier assay results from drilling.

    Four holes (1,500 metres) are planned with each drillhole initiated with a pre-collar well to 100 metres depth, except for drill hole #1. The second drillhole is located approximately 2500 metres north of drill hole #1.

    Drilling is anticipated to show a likely extension to the high grade lithium brines of Ganfeng Lithium/Lithium Americas and Orocobre/Advantage Lithium in adjacent properties (see Figures 2,3,4 in link below). Third party drill results on the here include 600-705mg/L lithium with high flow rates close to the lease boundary (see Note below). Based on recent seismic lines, Lake expects these high-grade lithium brines to extend into its leases and brine bearing sediments are estimated to extend to 300-400 metres deep, based on the interpretation of the seismic line completed by Lake.

    Lake originally secured the 18,000 hectare Olaroz-Cauchari leases in early 2016 and is the only ASX junior exploration/development company with a large lease portfolio within this proven lithium brine province.

    Managing Director Steve Promnitz said: "We aim to repeat the high grade lithium results in neighbouring drill holes 400-500 metres away in what is a proven and very large lithium resource. The Cauchari drilling is in the same basin and marks a key milestone for Lake after more than two years of preparatory work including securing the necessary permits and undertaking detailed geological modelling. It is great to be on the ground with the drills turning."

    Note: Drill results released by Orocobre (ASX:ORE) from their market releases on the ASX on 18 April 2018, 29 June 2018 and 19 Sept 2018.

    Oventus Medical Ltd (ASX:OVN) is pleased to announce that new clinical data from four separate studies on its Sleep Treatment Platform will be presented at Sleep DownUnder, the 30th annual meeting of sleep specialists, taking place in Brisbane between 17th -20th October.

    Key points:

    - Oventus to present new clinical data from four separate studies at the Sleep Down Under 2018 conference this week

    - 170 patients have now been studied in Oventus clinical trials, with outcomes consistently showing that the Sleep Treatment Platform can treat more than 75% of obstructive sleep apnoea patients across the full spectrum of disease severity

    Clinical work across multiple trials, through which 170 patients have been treated, shows Oventus' devices successfully treat more than 75% of patients without the need for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), the standard of care treatment for sleep apnoea.

    In keeping with earlier studies, key highlights included:

    - Patients with nasal obstruction who would normally struggle with treatment were found to benefit owing to the Oventus O2Vent's airway technology, which acts as a second nose, enabling the patient to breathe freely overnight

    - Patients that had failed prior lines of therapy were shown to have benefit from Oventus airway technology

    - Addition of the Oventus PEEP (positive end expiratory pressure) valve technology (which will be called ExVent(TM) once on market) to the O2Vent airway duck bill delivered a 30% (p
    - Addition of the Oventus oro-nasal PEEP Valve (which will be called ONEPAP(TM) once on market) increased O2Vent efficacy by 50% (p
    - Oventus airway technology improved treatment outcomes for CPAP users by reducing pressure requirements by 40-50% (p
    A new finding from a physiologic study predicting response to Oventus Airway Technology showed improved treatment outcomes for female patients (p
    "We have seen a dramatic improvement in our patients in clinical trials," said Dr Chris Hart, CEO of Oventus.

    "The technology in these devices eliminates the need for full face masks and greatly improves treatments for the majority. We have been consistently delighted with the results."

    Sleep Down Under is the scientific meeting of the Australasian Sleep Association (ASA) and Australasian Sleep Technologists Association (ASTA). The event brings together expert sleep clinicians and scientists to share the latest advancements and innovations in the world of sleep research and clinical practice.

    Anti-counterfeit and customer engagement solutions provider YPB Group Ltd (ASX:YPB) is pleased to announce a three year exclusive supply agreement with Shatterizer Inc., the fourth client under the "Cannabis Confirmed" initiative with leading Canadian cannabis e-commerce hub, Namaste Technologies Inc.(CVE:N)(OTCMKTS:NXTTF)(FRA:M5BQ).

    - Shatterizer Inc. a rapidly growing Canadian vaporizer company

    - Strong volume growth expected

    - YPB-Namaste Cannabis Confirmed initiative progressing rapidly

    Shatterizer Inc. is an established Canadian vaporizer brand leading in hardware for cannabis concentrates. The Shatterizer brand and the whole Canadian cannabis industry is gearing up for growth following the legalisation of recreational cannabis in Canada on 17 October 2018. Capital is pouring into the sector with the top 12 Canadian cannabis companies having a combined market capitalisation of CND55 billion.

    YPB and Shatterizer have signed a three year exclusive agreement whereby YPB's ProtectCode will be applied to all of Shatterizer's cannabis concentrates vaporizers and accessories. Almost all major vaporizer brands have counterfeit versions in the market and more recently this has extended to fake cannabis oils and the proliferation of synthetic cannabinoids.

    "We are thrilled to apply YPB's advanced technology and align with such a specialized and talented team. Through this partnership we look forward to creating an elevated and even more perfect seamless global customer service experience, with the positive potential to protect our diverse and growing products, accessories and brand. To date we are not aware of any counterfeit Shatterizers in market, but given the industry wide threatening trend, we want to be ahead of the curve to protect our customers" said Matt Zysman, inventor and company co-founder.

    Namaste Technologies is a global leader in cannabis e-commerce and has partnered with YBP to provide an industry-wide authentication and consumer engagement solution called "Cannabis Confirmed" to global cannabis industry companies. The Cannabis Confirmed initiative seeks to stamp out fakes by enabling cannabis brand customers to confirm the authenticity of their product after purchasing online by scanning a unique serialised QR code - a ProtectCode - on the product packaging. Authenticity triggers engagement and this interaction connects the physical product to the digital world, enabling direct brand to customer engagement via smartphone.

    YPB's Executive Chairman John Houston said: "Our early and swift success in the cannabis sector bodes well for our plans. Together, our ideal solutions and Namaste's market power create the prospect of Cannabis Confirmed becoming the authentication standard for the legal cannabis industry globally."
