Microgrid Design to Boost Energy Resilience at Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., March 23, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Black & Veatch is partnering with the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus to design and assess the financial and energy efficiency impacts of a microgrid in Buffalo, N.Y. The microgrid will provide resilient, clean energy for the 120-acre campus, long-term cost-savings and potential monetization opportunities for member institutions.
The Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus is a vital resource for the local community and is comprised of world-class hospitals, healthcare facilities, educational institutions and innovative biomedical research labs. A new microgrid would enable the campus to continue providing critical services during a potential power outage. Microgrid benefits would also include improved performance of the electric grid by better power consumption management during peak demand, increasing energy efficiency and reliability.  Microgrids are integrated systems of multiple power generation sources and electric loads. When operated under a consolidated control and energy management system, microgrids can produce and distribute electricity and operate independently from the larger power grid.“This project not only will bolster energy resilience and reliability, but also focuses on creating a sustainable business model for a community-based energy network that benefits facilities on the medical campus,” said Ajay Kasarabada, Black & Veatch Project Manager. “It will test, implement and evolve new methods of grid modernization and system efficiencies, and in the process, demonstrate how private capital can be leveraged to meet clean and smart energy goals.”The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) selected Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus to receive funding for the project as part of Stage 2 of the NY Prize Community Microgrid Competition. The institution was one of only 11 organizations throughout New York awarded with Stage 2 funding. In 2015, they were awarded for Stage 1 of the NY Prize, which supported an initial feasibility study. “We are excited to embark on the next steps to assess the feasibility of a microgrid that will further economic development as a platform for demonstrating the next evolution of energy technology,” said Paul Tyno, Director of Energy Initiatives at BNMC. “The scalable, sustainable design will include advanced software and control capabilities with access to multiple sources of power generation to allow more renewable energy resources to be integrated into our system.”Editor’s Notes:Improving grid reliability was listed as the top driver for investing in grid modernization, according to Black & Veatch’s 2017 Strategic Directions: Smart City/Smart Utility Report. Download the report here.The NY Prize competition is part of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) strategy to build a clean, resilient and affordable energy system for all New Yorkers.Black & Veatch designed and implemented a microgrid at its World Headquarters in Overland Park, Kansas, that can operate as an independent power source or in support of the traditional electric grid. The microgrid system generates electricity through a combination of natural gas, solar energy, geothermal and battery storage, and provides enough clean energy to run the headquarters’ 12,000 square-foot Rodman Innovation Pavilion.About Black & Veatch

Frontline Education Supports Employee Attraction and Retention Programs for K-12 Organizations

MALVERN, Pa., March 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Frontline Education today announced a marked increase in Frontline Recruiting & Hiring solution sales. Fort Worth Independent School District, several districts through the Cattaraugus-Allegany BOCES as well as the South East Education Cooperative, among many others, have added Frontline Recruiting & Hiring to their Frontline Education solutions portfolio. The districts are adopting a more comprehensive partnership strategy through Frontline Education’s Insights Platform. The driving force behind the spike has been attributed to a combination of seasonality and the K-12 education applicant pool.  

The increase that Frontline Education has experienced in Recruiting & Hiring clients is timely and relevant to districts’ seasonal focus on employee recruitment and retention. Each year, according to a report from the Learning Policy Institute1, approximately 16 percent of educators leave their school, making late winter and early spring high concentration periods for employee recruitment, hiring and retention efforts at districts nationwide. Newly certified educators are graduating from their programs and it is just before contract renewal period for experienced educators.  

„Districts are currently in the throes of recruiting and are actively seeking solutions in attracting and retaining candidates,” said SVP, Sales & Client Success Jim Catalino. „With just a few short months until the end of the school year, we are seeing a greater investment in their Recruiting & Hiring programs.” 

Teacher and Substitute Shortages are also contributing factors to districts’ need for support of their programs and processes from solutions in Recruiting & Hiring, in an effort to counteract the educator and substitute educator shortages. The issue of absences and shortages is also heavily considered in research conducted through the Frontline Research & Learning Institute. 

„The teacher shortage and the substitute shortage are prevalent issues for districts nationwide,” said Catalino. „It is critical that districts have additional support in their processes and programs to make the application and onboarding process easy, secure and intuitive. We believe this is, in part, responsible for the increase in Frontline Recruiting & Hiring contracts.” 

Frontline Education benefits K-12 organizations by unifying solutions for recruiting and hiring allowing them to streamline process. Frontline Recruiting & Hiring allows districts to recruit more applicants with ease, identify and quickly hire the best candidates, get new hires up to speed and manage employee records online after the hire. At the height of hiring season, these are core needs for school districts across the country.

MGX Minerals Acquires 110,000 Acres of Paradox Basin, Utah Oil and Gas Leases

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 23, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MGX Minerals Inc. (“MGX” or the “Company”) (CSE:XMG) (FKT:1MG) (OTC:MGXMF) is pleased to announce it has entered into a Joint Operating Agreement (the “Agreement”) with a private vendor to act as operator and acquire a 75% working interest in certain underlying Oil and Gas Leases (the “Leases”) located contiguous to the Company’s Lisbon Valley petrolithium project.
The Leases cover portions of San Juan County, Utah and San Miguel County, Colorado and will provide access to the brine-bearing aquifer systems within the Lisbon Valley area of the Paradox Basin. Preparations to permit the Petrolithium #1 borehole well will commence upon closing of the Agreement.The Company plans to conduct well-sampling and collect seismic data to advance hydrogeological understanding within the Pennsylvanian-age Paradox Formation, which consists of a thick (>3,667 meters) evaporite sequence. The most active period of subsidence extended from mid-Pennsylvanian to Late Triassic time. Thick cyclic accumulations of salt were deposited early and influenced by irregular and episodic movements of the faults, resulting in salt redistribution and flexure of the overlying rock. As a result, there are a large number of identified clastic zones.Agreement Terms

Gold Standard Acquires Strategic Claims Immediately South of Dark Star and Pinion Deposits in Nevada’s Carlin Trend

/EINPresswire.com/ — VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – Mar 23, 2017) – Gold Standard Ventures Corp. (TSX VENTURE:GSV)(NYSE MKT:GSV) („Gold Standard” or „GSV” or the „Company”) has added approximately 20,941.81 gross acres (19,777.21 net acres) to its holdings at the south end of the Carlin Trend, an increase of 66%. GSV now controls a total of 52,731 gross acres (208 sq. km. or 80 sq. miles) in the area. This is the first time these important holdings have been consolidated under the control of a single holder.

(Please click the following link to view an updated land map: https://goldstandardv.com/lp/railroad-pinion-land-acquistion/).

With these acquisitions, GSV has gained control over additional key gold exploration targets contiguous with, and to the south of, the growing Dark Star and Pinion deposits. A number of the areas acquired have had previous exploration, with historical results that suggest they are highly prospective.

The acquisitions include cost-effective lease agreements with private mineral interest owners and newly staked claims. The total cost of these acquisitions was approximately US$501,121. Annual holding costs for the new acquisitions are approximately US$289,000. Approximately 3,880 gross acres (2,540 net acres) of these acquisitions were previously disclosed by the Company in its Management Discussion and Analysis filed with SEDAR on November 14, 2016.

Key features of the land consolidation include:

  • Access to prime Dark Star-like gold exploration targets within favorable Pennsylvanian-Permian carbonate rocks as well as Devils Gate dissolution collapse breccia targets similar to Pinion and North Bullion. These targets have been identified by the Company from its re-interpretation of work by previous operators including limited drilling. To evaluate these new exploration opportunities, Gold Standard will implement the systematic, geologically-focused exploration methodology that has successfully resulted in the discovery and expansion of the Dark Star, Pinion and North Bullion gold deposits. Geologic mapping, gravity, CSAMT, soil geochemistry and systematic drill hole re-logging are planned for the new ground in 2017.
  • Access to southern strike extensions of the 6.7km long Dark Star Corridor (DSC). Within this structural corridor, the gold mineralization at the North Dark Star discovery, the Dark Star maiden resource and the Dixie prospect occur within a horst (uplifted block) of permissive Pennsylvanian-Permian host rocks in the footwall of a large-displacement normal fault on the east side of the horst. This configuration is a well-documented control for gold mineralization on the Carlin Trend and is amenable to further definition by geologic mapping, gravity and CSAMT.

Jonathan Awde, CEO and Director of Gold Standard commented: „We have been working patiently for almost 18 months on this package of additional claims. Since our initial acquisition in the Railroad District, our aim has been to consolidate the southern part of the Carlin Trend which historically has been divided among many small owners, preventing systematic district scale exploration using modern technologies. As we have developed our knowledge of the district, we have learned a great deal about where the best opportunities can be found and our ongoing land acquisition program has reflected this. We are confident that the gold system continues to the south onto the newly acquired ground.”

The scientific and technical content and interpretations contained in this news release have been reviewed, verified and approved by Steven R. Koehler, Gold Standard’s Manager of Projects, BSc. Geology and CPG-10216, a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101, Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects.

ABOUT GOLD STANDARD VENTURES – Gold Standard is an advanced stage gold exploration company focused on district scale discoveries on its Railroad-Pinion Gold Project, located within the prolific Carlin Trend. The 2014 Pinion and Dark Star gold deposit acquisitions offer Gold Standard a potential near-term development option and further consolidates the Company’s premier land package on the Carlin Trend. The land package and district potential are further consolidated with the acquisitions summarized in this press release. The Pinion deposit now has an NI43-101 compliant resource estimate consisting of an Indicated Mineral Resource of 31.61 million tonnes grading 0.62 grams per tonne (g/t) gold (Au), totaling 630,300 ounces of gold and an Inferred Resource of 61.08 million tonnes grading 0.55 g/t Au, totaling 1,081,300 ounces of gold, using a cut-off grade of 0.14 g/t Au (announced March 15, 2016). The Dark Star deposit, 2.1 km to the east of Pinion, has a NI43-101 compliant resource estimate consisting of an Inferred Resource of 23.11 million tonnes grading 0.51 g/t Au, totaling 375,000 ounces of gold, using a cut-off grade of 0.14 g/t Au (announced March 3, 2015). The 2014 and 2015 definition and expansion of these two shallow, oxide deposits demonstrates their growth potential.
