BRUSSELS — A Greek far-right member of the European Parliament arrested last month in Belgium can be extradited to Greece to serve a 13-year prison sentence, the Brussels prosecutor’s office said Friday. The office said Ioannis Lagos has until Monday to appeal the Brussels court's ruling that the European arrest warrant is executable. It did not say when Lagos, who had refused to be extradited upon his arrest, will be delivered to Greek authorities, citing “obvious security reasons." Lagos has been living in Brussels since a Greek court in October convicted him and 17 other former Greek lawmakers from the extreme-right Golden Dawn party of leading a criminal organization, or being members in it. Lagos was taken into custody last month after the European Parliament voted to remove his immunity, paving the way for him to be sent to Athens on a European arrest warrant. Golden Dawn was founded as a Nazi-inspired group in the 1980s. It saw a surge in popularity during Greece’s 2010-2018 financial crisis, gaining parliamentary representation between 2012 and 2019. The five-year trial in Athens was launched following the 2013 murder of rapper and left-wing activist Pavlos Fyssas, who was stabbed to death by a Golden Dawn supporter. The other convicted Golden Dawn members are already in jail, except for one who escaped arrest and is officially a fugitive. The Associated Press
GRAND BAIE, Mauritius, May 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alphamin Resources Corp. (AFM:TSXV, APH:JSE AltX, “Alphamin” or the “Company”), a producer of 4% of the world’s mined tin1 from its high grade operation in the Democratic Republic of Congo, is pleased to provide the following operational and financial update for the quarter ended March 2021: Record Q1 EBITDA of $36,5m, at a tin price of $23,083/t (Current: ~$29,000/t);Tin sales of 3,351 tons, up 45% from the previous quarter;Main Zone mineralisation intercepted at Mpama South, based on visual inspection and interpretation, is comparable to the Resource mined at the high grade Mpama North Mine;New parallel mineralisation zone discovered in the footwall of the Main Zone at Mpama South;Mpama North deeps drilling to commence May 2021 (previously August 2021)Fine tin recovery plant on schedule for commissioning during June 2021 Operational and Financial Summary for the Quarter ended March 20212 DescriptionUnitsActual Quarter endedMarch 2021Quarter endedDecember 2020VarianceTons ProcessedTons93 99793 5600%Tin Grade Processed% Sn3,84,2-9%Overall Plant Recovery%74740%Contained Tin ProducedTons2 6112 898-10%Contained Tin SoldTons3 3512 30645%EBITDAUS$'00036 45316 748118%AISC per ton tin soldUS$/t12 16211 3847%Tin Price AchievedUS$/t23 08318 49725% ____________________________________________________________ 1Data obtained from International Tin Association Tin Industry Review 2020 2 Production information is disclosed on a 100% basis. Alphamin indirectly owns 84.14% of its operating subsidiary to which the information relates. Operational and Financial Performance Contained tin sales of 3,351 tons was 45% higher than the previous quarter as we recouped the sales shortfall of Q4 2020. Contained tin production of 2,611 tons was impacted by a lower feed grade of 3.8% Sn compared to 4.2% Sn the previous quarter. Tin feed grades are variable between quarters but on average trend close to the targeted 4% Sn Reserve Grade over a rolling 12-month period. The processing plant performed well at an average recovery of 74% whilst treating more material than the previous quarter. EBITDA of $36,5m for Q1 2021 is 118% above the previous quarter due to increased sales volumes benefiting from a 25% higher tin price. Tin prices are currently trading at around $29,000/t, some 26% above prices achieved during Q1 2021. AISC per ton of contained tin sold increased 7% to $12,162 from the previous quarter. AISC includes government royalties, export fees, product marketing commissions and smelter deductors all of which are directly linked to the tin price. As a consequence, the AISC increase is a direct result of the higher tin price achieved during Q1 2021. On average, 15%-20% of the tin price increase feeds to our AISC. Alphamin’s unaudited consolidated financial statements and accompanying Management’s Discussion and Analysis for the quarter ended 31 March 2021 have been filed and are available under the Company’s profile at www.sedar.com. Production and AISC Guidance for the quarter ending June 20213 We expect contained tin production and sales of approximately 2,700 tons for the quarter ending June 2021. Covid-19 Pandemic and Impact on Operations: The health of our employees is of paramount importance and in this regard the Company has a range of Covid-19 awareness, prevention and other risk mitigation controls in place. To date, the Company has been able to continue with normal production and concentrate sales activities and has not been negatively affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. Growth Initiatives Fine Tin Recovery Plant (FTP) - The FTP is on schedule for full commissioning during June 2021. Estimated expenditure at completion is substantially in line with the budget of US$4.6 million. The FTP has the potential to increase contained tin production by 5%-10% effective July 2021. ____________________________________________________________3 Production and sales guidance is based on certain estimates and assumptions, including but not limited to: quantity of material processed, tin grades of processed material and processing recoveries, truck availabilities for tin sales and assumes mining operations will continue to be conducted in the same manner as the previous quarter and will not be further impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. Exploration Activities - Alphamin’s exploration initiative aims to: extend the life-of-mine at its currently producing Mpama North operation; to declare a Maiden Mineral Resource for Mpama South (located 750 metres south of Mpama North); and to discover at least one additional orebody on the highly prospective Bisie Ridge (13km strike length). In that regard, Alphamin plans to allocate significant drilling metres to each of these three objectives during 2021 as follows: Mpama South – between 8,000 and 14,000 metres drilling which, if successful, would allow Alphamin to declare a Maiden Mineral Resource towards the end of 2021 to be followed by a conceptual mining study, infill drilling and further step-out drilling to determine the extent of mineralisation;Mpama North – an initial 12,000 to 18,000 metre drilling campaign is planned to test the strike and dip extension of the current producing orebody, below 400m in depth from the mine portal. Commencement of drilling is targeted for May 2021 (previously August 2021);Two drill targets 6-8km south of Mpama North have been identified along the Bisie Ridge. A tightly spaced geochemical soil sampling program is underway and more accurate drill targets will be identified by the outcomes of this program in Q3 2021. Drilling at the Mpama South deposit of 8,200m metres has already been completed with an additional 5,800 metres planned to be drilled between May and end July 2021 with the goal of declaring an initial maiden resource towards the end of 2021. As previously reported, all samples from drilling will be exported for assay by accredited 3rd party off-site laboratories. Assay results from the first two batches of export samples totalling 13 of the 25 drillholes drilled in phase 1, are expected in early May 2021 with another 7 drillhole results from batch 3 expected towards end May 2021. All holes completed have shown visual mineralisation, supporting continuity of the Main Zone system, while several exceptional intercepts comparable to the thick veins and brecciated zones of cassiterite existing at Mpama North were also observed. In addition, a new zone of mineralisation was discovered in the footwall which appears continuous and highly mineralised. Changes to Board Mr. Douglas Strong has resigned as a director of the Company and, subject to regulatory approval, Mr. Brendan Lynch has been appointed to fill the vacancy created by Mr. Strong’s resignation. The Company would like to thank Mr. Strong for his contributions to Alphamin during his tenure on the board.

Derek Chauvin and three other former Minneapolis policer officers involved in George Floyd's death were indicted Friday on federal civil rights charges. The indictment alleges Chauvin, Tou Thao, J. Alexander Kueng and Thomas Lane deprived Floyd's rights when they saw him lying on the ground "in clear need" of medical care, but "willfully failed to aid Floyd, thereby acting with deliberate indifference to a substantial risk of harm." Chauvin was charged with one count of deprivation of rights under color of law for his direct role in 46-year-old Floyd's May 25, 2020, death.
Highlights of the Chimo Mine property: The new resource estimate consists of (FIGURE) : 6,616,000 tonnes at an average grade of 3.21 g/t Au for a total of 684,000 ounces of gold in the Indicated category and ;15,240,000 tonnes at an average grade of 2.77 g/t Au for a total of 1,358,000 ounces of gold in the Inferred category. The resource estimate is constrained using DSO (“Deswik Stope Optimizer”) with a cut-off grade of 2.0 g/t Au for the North and South Gold Corridors and 1.5 g/t Au for the Central Gold Corridor and using a price of gold of USD 1,612 US / oz. The results of recent work, that add value to the resources, include : The industrial sorting tests of the mineralization allowed to produce a concentrate representing more than 50% of the mass of the original material with a percentage increase of 170% of the gold content compared to the feed of the sorter. The increase in the content of the preconcentrated material, preceding the machining operations, favors: Increase the recovery rate at the mill;Reduce transport costs to the mill as well as the milling costs;Reduce the environmental cost of restoration of mine tailings;Reduce the environmental footprint of mine tailings and consequently increase the social acceptability of mining project. The study on the hoisting capacities of the shaft of the Chimo Mine property reveals that the components of the internal structure of the shaft could allow hoisting of 4,921 mt / day, i.e. 1.7 M mt / year. The hoisting capacity could be increased to 6,151 mt / day (2.2 M mt / year) by replacing the guides in place with steel guides. Ongoing internal engineering studies, developing and producing the design of optimal mining scenarios to minimize costs and recover the most ounce of gold possible, are progressing in line with the results described above. The potential to increase the resources below and peripheral to the 27 gold zones on the property (FIGURE) remain good. VAL-D’OR, Quebec, May 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cartier Resources Inc. (TSX-V: ECR) (“Cartier”) announces that it has filed on SEDAR the technical report titled " NI 43-101 Technical Report and Mineral Resource Estimate for the Chimo Mine Project, Quebec, Canada ", bearing the date of signature of the May 6th, 2021. The NI 43-101 compliant report, completed by InnovExplo Inc. for Cartier, presents the results of the updated mineral resource estimate for the Chimo Mine Property situated along the Larder Lake - Cadillac Fault, 45 km to east of Val-d'Or. The report is available on SEDAR and on the Company's website. Mineralisation on the Chimo Mine Property is comprised of 27 Gold Zones hosted within 17 Gold Structures; the latter grouped within 3 Gold Corridors. The Mineral Resource Estimate to date for the property is presented in the following table (FIGURE): Gold CorridorCut-off Grade(g/t Au)Indicated ResourcesInferred ResourcesMetric Tonnes(t)Grade(g/t Au)Troy Ounce(oz Au)Metric Tonnes(t)Grade (g/t Au)Troy Ounce(oz Au)North Gold Corridor (> 2.0)1,119,0003.85139,0001,563,0003.54178,000Central Gold Corridor (> 1.5)5,053,0003.03493,00011,728,0002.55963,000South Gold Corridor (> 2.0)444,0003.6152,0001,949,0003.47217,000Total6,616,0003.21684,00015,240,0002.771,358,000 The volume of rock that contains the gold-bearing zones of the property known to date, for which the resources have been estimated, has a length in the east-west orientation of 1,400 m, a width in the north-south orientation of 675 m and a height of 1,600 m (FIGURE). The resource estimate of the North Gold Corridor, consisting of 9 zones (1A, 1B, 2, 2B, 2W, 3, 3E, 4B and 4B2), of the Central Gold Corridor, consisting of 13 zones (5B, 5B2, 5B3, 5B4, 5C, 5CE, 5M, 5M2, 5M3, 5M4, 5N, 5NE and 6N1) as well as the South Gold Corridor, consisting of 5 zones (6, 6B, 6C, 6P and 6P2), is completed from the information known to date. The majority of resources are located near existing underground openings. However, Zone 6N1 is located 125 m to the southeast and the areas in the eastern sector of the property are located 450 m to the east of the existing underground infrastructure. The potential to increase the resources below and peripheral to the 27 gold zones remains open. Additional notes on the resource estimate The gold resource estimate was carried out by Ms. Christine Beausoleil, P. Geo. and Claude Savard, P. Geo. of InnovExplo Inc., who are independent qualified persons within the meaning of NI 43-101.These mineral resources are not mineral reserves because their economic viability has not been demonstrated. The quantity and grade of Inferred Resources reported in this Mineral Resource Estimate is uncertain in nature and there can be no assurance that any or all of the Inferred Mineral Resources can be converted to Indicated Mineral Resources with further exploration drilling.The mineral resource estimate of complies with the standards and guidelines in effect of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM) as well as the NI 43-101 standard for the publication of mineral resources.The requirement of a reasonable prospect of eventual economic extraction is met by having a minimum modeling width for mineralized zones, a cut-off grade based on reasonable inputs and an economic binding volume that lends itself to a potential scenario of underground extraction for undiluted in-situ resources. The constrained volume was achieved with the Deswik Stope Optimizer (" DSO ") using a minimum mining volume of 10 m in width in the longitudinal orientation of the gold zones, by 10 m in height and 2 m in thickness varying up to a maximum of 25 m x 100 m x 15 m. The optimization was carried out using the respective cut-off grade of each of the gold corridors for the indicated and inferred resources. The results of the DSO were then used for the resource estimate statement.The resource estimate is presented for potential underground scenarios at a cut-off grade of 2.0 g/t Au for the North and South Gold Corridors and 1.5 g/t Au for the Central Gold Corridor. The cut-off grade reflects the geometry and actual width of each of the gold corridors. The cut-off grade was calculated using the following main parameters: Gold price of US $ 1,612 / oz;Exchange rate of US $ 1.34 / CAD $ per troy ounce;Costs relating to the Central Gold Corridor for: Definition drilling of CAD $ 3.00 / t;Development, mining, transport and milling of CAD $ 50.75 / t;Environmental restoration of CAD $ 0.75 / t; Costs relating to the North and South Gold Corridors for: Definition drilling of CAD $ 6.00 / t;Development, mining, transport and milling of CAD $ 75.50 / t;Environmental restoration of CAD $ 1.50 / t; Cost of transportation of CAD $ 9.80 / t;Cost of milling of CAD $ 17.00 / t;IamGold Corporation royalty cost of CAD $ 21.60 / troy ounce;General and administrative costs of 12.00 $ CAD / t. The estimate was carried out on 17 3D solids corresponding to the structures constituting the Northern Gold Corridor (structures: 1A, 1B, 2, 3 and 4B), South (structures: 6, 6B, 6C, 6P and 6P2) and Central (structures: 5B, 5B2, 5C, 5M, 5M2, 5N and 6N1) of the Chimo Mine property whose minimum actual thickness is 2.40 m and the average thickness is 7.42 m. The contents of the samples analyzed are used when they are available otherwise in the absence of analytical content, a value of zero is assigned.The density value of 2.90 g/cm3, supported by measurements, was applied to all gold structures except for structures 1A and 1B, associated to iron formation, where a density value of 3.10 g/cm3 was used.The estimate was made from a database made up, as of September 1, 2020, of 3,658 holes totaling 296,999 m drilled, 18,612 deviation measurements as well as 83,192 samples analyzed for gold and collected over a core length of 89,805 m representing 30% of the core length drilled. This database contains 2,383 blank and standard samples, inserted for QA/QC by Cartier between November 1, 2016 and September 1, 2020. This database was validated before starting the resource estimate. The estimate was carried out on 17 mineralized structures, intersected by 67,103 m of drilling, having produced 8,611 different gold intersections.High grade capping was carried out from statistical analysis data at each of the gold structures for values varying between 30 g/t Au and 120 g/t Au from the grade of the composites, also using the grade adjacent material or a value of zero when adjacent material has not been analyzed.The underground openings (open or backfilled-cemented mine sites, drifts, raises and shafts) were modeled from transverse and longitudinal sections as well as detailed historical geological and mining plans. This mineral resource estimate was performed using GEOVIA GEMS 6.8.2. Software, using rigid limits on composites. The ordinary kriging method was used to interpolate the block model composed of blocks of dimension 5.0 m x 5.0 m x 5.0 m.The mineral resource estimate presented here is classified as indicated and inferred resources. The indicated category is defined by a minimum of 3 boreholes located within a 25 m radius and the presumed category is defined by a minimum of 2 boreholes located within a 65 m radius, where there is reasonable continuity of geology and gold grades.Ounce troy is metric tons multiplied by grade (g/t) and divided by the constant of 31.10348.

About Chimo Mine Project Cartier holds a 100% interest in the property for which a 1% NSR (“Net Smelter Return”) royalty has been granted to IAMGOLD Corporation. There is no right of first refusal.The property, accessible year-round, is located near many ore processing mills in the Val-d’Or area.Fourteen gold zones were exploited by three producers between 1964 and 1997 for a production of 379 012 ounces of gold.The mining infrastructure consists of a network of drifts over 7 km, distributed over 19 levels and connected by a 5.5 m x 1.8 m three-compartment shaft for a depth of 920 m. The headframe and surface installations were dismantled in 2008, but the 25 kV power line and sandpit are still in place.The study on the hoisting capacities of the shaft of the Chimo Mine property reveals that the components of the internal structure of the shaft could allow hoisting with elongated 20 metric tons (mt) “skips”, 4,921 mt / day at the rate of 10 hours of hoisting operation per 24- hour day, i.e. 1.7 M mt / year. The hoisting capacity in 10 hours of operation / 24 hours, could be increased to 6,151 t / d (2.2 M mt / year) with “skips”' of 25 mt and to 7,381 mt / d (2.6 M mt / year) with “skips” of 30 tm; all mainly by replacing the guides in place with steel guides.Cartier’s drilling to date on the Chimo Mine Property consists of 124 holes totalling 58,054 m and 21,867 samples collected for gold analysis. About Cartier Cartier Resources Inc., founded in 2006, is based in Val-d’Or, Quebec. This province has consistently ranked as one of the world’s best mining jurisdictions, primarily because of its favourable geology, attractive fiscal environment and pro-mining government. The Company has a strong cash position with more than $9.0 million and a significant corporate and institutional endorsement, including Agnico Eagle Mines, Jupiter Asset Management and Quebec investment funds.Cartier’s strategy is to focus on gold projects with features that offer the potential for rapid growth.The Company holds a portfolio of exploration projects in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt of Quebec, one of the world’s most prolific mining regions.The Company’s focus is to advance its three key projects through drilling programs. All of the projects were acquired at reasonable costs in recent years and are drill-ready with targets along the geometric extensions of gold deposits.Exploration work is currently focused on the Chimo Mine and Benoist properties to maximize value for investors. Future exploration work is planned on the Fenton property. Quality Assurance / Quality Control The analytical results, from Cartier drill holes, were obtained from NQ-caliber core samples crushed up to 80% passing a 10 mesh (2.00 mm) mesh then pulverized up to 90% passing a mesh of 200 mesh (0.07mm). Cartier inserts 5% of the number of samples as certified standards and another 5% as sterile samples to ensure quality control. Samples are analyzed at Techni-Lab (Actlabs), located in Ste-Germaine-Boulé, Quebec. The 50 g pulps are analyzed by fire assay and read by atomic absorption. If i) the result is ≥ 1.0 g/t and <10.0 g/t, a second pulp is analyzed and read by atomic absorption and if ii) the result ≥ 10.0 g/t, the second measurement is performed by gravimetry. For samples containing visible gold, 500 g of rock pulverized up to 90% passing a 140 mesh (0.11 mm) mesh is analyzed by the " Metallic Sieve " method.

MONTREAL — Quebec's health minister says 102,700 COVID-19 vaccinations were given in the province Thursday, the highest daily number to date. Christian Dubé says the province also set a daily record for vaccination appointments, with 272,000 bookings made. Dubé says in a Twitter post the province is ready to ramp up vaccinations when vaccine deliveries permit, and he calls the response from Quebecers "exceptional." The province has started accepting appointments for those 35 and older and says all adults will be eligible by the end of next week. During a briefing Thursday, Dubé said the province has vaccinated 40 per cent of the population with at least one dose. He also said that beginning May 13, Quebec will begin offering electronic proof of vaccination. This report by The Canadian Press was first published May 7, 2021. The Canadian Press
The dollar fell to its lowest in more than two months on Friday after U.S. jobs data for April came in well below expectations, putting a damper on hopes that a roaring economic recovery would lead to higher rates any time soon. "The dollar is really getting spanked this morning," said Boris Schlossberg, managing director of FX strategy at BK Asset Management. It also means U.S. interest rates will stay at ultra-low levels for quite a while and that is going to keep the pressure on the dollar, Schlossberg added.
MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Amazon is pausing its Prime Day marketing event in Canada this year amid ongoing COVID-19 outbreaks at its facilities in Ontario's Peel Region. In a notice to sellers obtained by The Canadian Press, Amazon says the pause was put in place to protect the health and safety of employees. The company says it will monitor the COVID-19 situation in Canada to determine the next steps for the event. A number of Amazon’s major fulfilment centres are located in Peel Region, just west of Toronto, which has one of the highest community COVID-19 positivity rates in the country. Peel's public health unit has partially closed three Amazon fulfilment centres in the last two weeks under its order to close workplaces with five or more cases of COVID-19. The company was also ordered to shut a site in Brampton, Ont., in March after an outbreak sickened more than 600 employees. This report by The Canadian Press was first published May 7, 2021.

The Canadian dollar fell against its U.S. counterpart on Friday as data showed Canada losing more jobs than expected, with the currency retreating from its strongest level in 3-1/2 years but on course to gain ground for the sixth straight week. Canada's economy shed 207,100 jobs in April, more than the analyst prediction of a 175,000-job loss, with the declines driven by coronavirus restrictions in populous Ontario, Quebec and British Columbia, Statistics Canada data showed. U.S. jobs data for April also disappointed, with employers hiring far fewer workers than expected, likely frustrated by labor shortages.
