Figure 1 Location of Skaergaard Mineral Exploration Licences in eastern Greenland VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Major Precious Metals Corp. (“Major Precious Metals” or the “Company”) (CSE:SIZE | OTC:SIZYF | FRANKFURT:3EZ) is pleased to provide an update on its exploration and drilling plans for this summer on the Skaergaard Project (“Skaergaard”) in eastern Greenland. Charter Ship and Drilling Program Update The Company is now well advanced in planning its summer 2021 exploration and diamond drilling program at Skaergaard including engaging Airland Logistics, a provider of international freight and logistics services based in Denmark to obtain a suitable charter passenger ship and cargo vessel to support its 2021 drilling program. The Company has already reserved a converted icebreaker to be retrofitted to include a helipad, to provide accommodations for field crews, as opposed to building a temporary field camp at the Sødalen airstrip (MEL 2012-25), located 15 km east of the Skaergaard deposit (Figure 1). This Arctic-class (ice class 1A) passenger ship will be large enough to accommodate up to 100 passengers and crew, yet small enough to navigate the narrow channels (fiords) and inlets prominent on the east coast of Greenland and allow the ship to anchor within 200-300 metres of the Skaergaard deposit. Using a passenger ship for accommodations is environmentally friendly and will significantly reduce or eliminate wildlife disturbances, thereby improving the health and safety of field and drilling staff, and helicopter crews. In addition, using a passenger ship anchored so close to the drill sites will result in significantly less helicopter transit times and increased cost savings. The Company is also in the final stages of selecting a drilling company for the diamond drilling program and is in the process of hiring core logging geologists and field technicians to support the drilling program. The Company plans to complete a minimum of 10,000 metres of diamond drilling on its Skaergaard mineral exploration licence (MEL 2007-01) using four heli-supported drilling rigs, with mobilization planned between the end of June and early July. The Company also plans to complete reconnaissance field mapping of its new exploration licence granted in January (MEL 2021-10) as part of its summer 2021 exploration plans, and to examine whether this new licence area could be used as potential sites for future infrastructure as part of the upcoming Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) for the Skaergaard Project (Figure 1). The Company is also pleased that the Greenland government’s Mineral Licencing and Safety Authority (MLSA) has recently given its conditional approval for the Company’s planned exploration and drilling activities at Skaergaard this summer. Discussions with a number of other suppliers, vendors, helicopter and fixed wing companies, and expediting companies is ongoing.

The all-electric 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E in the IIHS 40-mph driver-side small overlap crash test. The Mach-E earns good ratings in six crashworthiness tests and qualifies for a TOP SAFETY PICK award when equipped with specific headlights. The all-electric 2021 Volvo XC40 Recharge in the IIHS 31-mph side crash test. The XC40 Recharge earns good ratings in six crashworthiness tests and qualifies for a TOP SAFETY PICK+ award. ARLINGTON, Va., April 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Evidence is growing that electric vehicles are at least as safe as conventional ones, with two more vehicles that run exclusively on battery power earning safety awards from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. In addition, an updated analysis of insurance data shows injury claims are substantially less frequent for such vehicles. The newly launched 2021 Volvo XC40 Recharge, a small SUV, qualifies for the TOP SAFETY PICK+ designation, the higher of the Institute’s two awards, while the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E, a midsize SUV, earns the lower-tier TOP SAFETY PICK award. Earlier this year, the all-electric Audi e-tron, Audi e-tron Sportback and Tesla Model 3 also qualified for 2021 TOP SAFETY PICK+ awards. Several plug-in hybrid vehicles earned awards, too. “It’s fantastic to see more proof that these vehicles are as safe as or safer than gasoline- and diesel-powered cars,” says IIHS President David Harkey. “We can now say with confidence that making the U.S. fleet more environmentally friendly doesn’t require any compromises in terms of safety.” The 2021 TOP SAFETY PICK award requires good ratings in all six IIHS crashworthiness tests — driver- and passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraints. Winners must also be available with good or acceptable headlights and a front crash prevention system that earns advanced or superior ratings in both the vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations. To qualify for the “plus,” vehicles must come with good or acceptable headlights across all trim levels and packages. The curve-adaptive LED reflector headlights installed on every XC40 Recharge earn a good rating. The SUV’s standard front crash prevention system also earns superior and advanced scores in the vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations, respectively. The Mach-E is available with good-rated LED projector headlights on the Premium, GT and First Edition trims, which qualify for TOP SAFETY PICK. However, the LED reflectors installed on the Select and California Route 1 trims are rated marginal, preventing the new Mustang from earning the “plus.” These headlights provided inadequate illumination on some curves. The Mach-E also comes with a standard front crash prevention system that earns superior ratings in both the vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations. The new awards for the XC40 Recharge and the Mustang Mach-E coincide with a recent study of insurance losses for electric vehicles by the IIHS-affiliated Highway Loss Data Institute that provides additional evidence about the safety of EVs. The HLDI analysis doesn’t include these two vehicles but highlights loss trends for EVs overall. The study looks at electric and conventional versions of nine models from 2011 to 2019, yielding more than twice as large a sample as a previous study conducted in 2017. It examines collision, property damage liability and injury claims. The updated data show that rates of injury claims related to the drivers and passengers of electric vehicles were more than 40 percent lower than for identical conventional models over 2011-19. This result is similar to an earlier HLDI study of hybrid vehicles, and one likely explanation is that the large batteries used in both types of vehicles make them substantially heavier than their conventional counterparts. Occupants of heavier vehicles are exposed to lower forces in multivehicle crashes. The XC40 Recharge has a curb weight of 4,787 pounds, compared with 3,811 pounds for the conventional model. There is no conventional version of the Mach-E, but its curb weight of 4,516 pounds is also higher than many conventional midsize SUVs.

When life gives you...strawberries?!
(Bloomberg) -- Oil dropped for a third day after data showed a rise in U.S. stockpiles and investors fretted over an uneven recovery in global demand.West Texas Intermediate shed 0.5% following a fall on Wednesday, when government figures showed the first rise in American stockpiles in a month. A flare-up in coronavirus cases in India, the third-largest oil importer, is hurting consumption, with curbs reimposed in cities including Mumbai. That’s offsetting positive signals on demand from other economies including China and the U.S.Crude’s run of losses is threatening to push prices back toward $60 a barrel, eroding gains last week that were underpinned by positive forecasts for worldwide energy demand from the International Energy Agency and Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. U.S. futures are still up by more than 25% this year, however, while global benchmark Brent remains backwardated, a bullish pattern that suggests an underlying resilience.“Asia, especially India, is becoming the epicenter of all fears surrounding demand,” said Steve Innes, chief market strategist at Axi. Still, “macros are pretty strong globally,” he added, flagging prospects for improved consumption over the northern hemisphere summer, aided by U.S. driving season.The U.S. figures showed a surprise addition of 594,000 barrels to nationwide stockpiles. However, the rolling four-week average for oil products supplied ticked higher, and the same snapshot for gasoline rose to 8.93 million barrels a day, about half a million barrels shy of the same week in 2019.The global picture -- and prospects for near-term energy demand -- are mixed. While vaccination drives are prompting greater activity and rising mobility in the U.S. and parts of Europe, the pandemic is tightening its grip elsewhere. More people were diagnosed with Covid-19 last week than in any other since the outbreak began, led by the rocketing numbers in India.See also: Global Virus Resurgence Threatens Vigorous Growth MomentumHighlighting the grim situation in South Asia, India on Wednesday reported a record 2,023 Covid-19 deaths, and an unprecedented 295,041 fresh cases. The dramatic surge has forced the nation’s financial and political capitals -- Mumbai and New Delhi -- to impose restrictions on movement.Even as India is facing a crisis, however, other countries are mapping out plans to open up in a potential boost to oil demand. Among them, France will lift curbs on regional movement and reopen schools in coming weeks, and Greece will ease most lockdown measures in May ahead of its reopening to tourism.Banking on a pick-up in demand, the OPEC+ alliance is planning to relax its deep supply curbs from May through to July. Despite these extra barrels, there is still expected to be a drawdown in global inventories, supporting prices, Australia & New Zealand Banking Group said in a report.Brent’s prompt timespread was 65 cents a barrel in backwardation, up from 40 cents at the start of April. That’s a bullish pattern, with near-term prices trading above those further out.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
