Appia’s management, directors and consulting team have extensive experience with uranium exploration in the prolific Athabasca Basin district of northern Saskatchewan, and uranium and rare earth development and mining in the historic Elliot Lake mining camp.

-The following video describing their exciting “Alces Lake” rare earth (REE) and critical rare earth (CREE) minerals property located in Saskatchewan. The company is launching a $5 million diamond drill program in the 2nd quarter of 2021 to further develop this highly mineralized property.

PDAC 2021 is Here!

It is PDAC again, the biggest mining conference of the year (in the world) is here and this year it is virtual! Like most of the world PDAC is going virtual this year and it promises to be a good one.

You can register here: PDAC 2021 Convention Registration
-A popular real life event which has now gone virtual is the Core Shack PDAC 2021 Core Shack

-With this year being basically 100% virtual, it is quite possible that attendees will be able to cover even more of the events and participate in more meetings – since they won’t have travel to deal with. As the world has adapted to virtual communication at a blinding speed because of the pandemic it may just be that consuming new information on potential investments or companies and subjects of interest will permanently be facilitated by virtual information consumption.

There is a lot to be happy about this year if you are in the mining or minerals and commodities supply business. Demand is booming with Electric Vehicles firmly leading the way in a number of categories. Uranium and nuclear power demands are also on the scene and more and more people are realizing that keeping the world green may well depend on implement nuclear power as it creates virtually no greenhouse emissions. (Wake up Greenpeace!) Copper has seen recent multi-year highs which is usually considered a very powerful sign of growth. In short, things are booming for this sector and the rest of the investing world is starting to catch on. Very exciting!

At any rate, it is happening in full measure this year of 2021 and we expect the PDAC organization to be fully prepared and to ‘knock it out of the park’ as they do every year, see you there!

Bitcoin Update- 2021

Last year at this time, PDAC 2020 was occurring and Bitcoin was trading in the $8,500.00 USD range.
Now it is PDAC 2021 and Bitcoin is trading in the $48-49,000.00 USD range. Just saying….

Market corrections do happen..

Stock markets overall have been correcting for the past couple of weeks, with Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies not immune to this phenomenon either. Markets have been on what is considered a long if not historical bull run so this correction is not really a surprise. How long and deep the correction will be is the question. Traders watch the Nasdaq QQQ and SQQQ ETF’s for clues.

When a medium to deep correction happens most sectors lose value, with some sectors tending to fall more than others. In this particular correction in fact the oil sector has actually been doing well because of oil prices rising to new intermediate term highs.

The OTC and pink sheet market companies have taken a brutal hit for some reason- maybe the short algos have been working overtime but it has not been pretty.

At any rate picking quality growth companies to invest in is always in fashion and can protect against longer downturns when the overall markets inevitably continue to march north.


PDAC 2020 is here soon!

With the mining and commodities business looking healthier today than it has in a years, the 2020 PDAC is coming up quickly!
The PDAC goes from Sunday Mar 01 to Wednesday March 04 this year. A large turnout is expected with lots of juniors reorganized and galvanized, as well as mergers happening to consolidate the industry further. The conference is the biggest of it’s kind in the world and it is not unusual to get more than 25-30,000 people in attendance.

Various juniors had eyebrow raising growth in 2019 which is not going unnoticed by the investment community at large. AMEX Exploration for example (TSXV:AMX) has a 52 week range of .22 to $1.65 and is currently trading in the $1.45 cent range. It was a leader in the juniors and continues to press release very good results from their Quebec properties.
Great Bear Resources Ltd. was another winner in the news quite often in 2019. 52 week hi was $9.70 (cad) with a low of $2.20 (cad). Some serious gains were seen by shareholders in these 2 companies as well as a host of others, while the marijuana/cannabis companies virtually collapsed. Therefore we can make the conclusion that that sooner or later the rest of the exploration juniors may be getting some love which has been sorely missing for many years…

O’Cannabiz 2019

The 2019 O’Cannabiz Conference and Expo is happening in Toronto this weekend. The dates are from April 25 to April 29. This will be a beehive of activity if past shows and the current mania of growth in this industry is any indication.

This year the conference is happening at the International Center in Mississagua at 6900 Airport Road, where there is usually plenty of free parking. This location is a fair distance from downtown Toronto where most of the cannabis conferences take place. It is right beside the airport however, so that is a bonus for out of town visitors.

At any rate, there is a lot of excitement and quite amazing growth since legalization has started to become widespread industry as anyone who has not been hiding under a rock for the past 4 or 5 years is probably aware of. The O’Cannabiz conference is voted #1 cannabis event in Canada by High Canada magazine, and they are usually on top of these industry events.

Here is an update on the wondrous effects of CBD which is a non-psychoactive element in the cannabis plant which is getting constant press nowadays for the positive effects people have been experiencing in it’s usage. We snagged this section of info from the High Canada Instagram post, which they apparently got from @traitbiosciences….hope no one minds,

Reposted from @traitbiosciences – CBD IS AMAZING 🙌🏻🌿…Studies say CBD can be an all natural alternative to many anti-anxiety & sleep aid meds. When ingested, CBD activates cell receptors in our Endocannabinoid System that help alleviate anxiety. Research suggests that CBD may boost signaling through serotonin receptors, which can reduce anxiety & boost mood. Studies have reported that patients suffering from depression or anxiety often have a smaller hippocampus. The hippocampus is part of the brain and plays a critical role in many brain functions, such as memory and cognition. Successful treatment of depression and anxiety is associated with the birth of new neurons in the hippocampus. According to research, evidence suggests that CBD may help the hippocampus regenerate neurons.

Stay tuned for updates on this wonderful substance as the FDA is apparently slated to review CBD usability according to their rules around the end of May 2019.

(Disclaimer- This article not to be taken as medical advice)

There are people who may never warm up to or desire the effects of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), whether it is medically approved or not. THC is the part of the plant which gives people the “high” feeling, also known as psychotropic effect.

They can still benefit from the wondrous substances the cannabis plant provides however, by using CBD oil. This is due to the fact humans have an endocannabinoid system as part of our make-up. A brief description is that the endocannabinoid system is important in maintaining homeostasis which is the maintenance of a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment.

According to an article from the website

“The endocannabinoid system, with its complex actions in our immune system, nervous system, and all of the body’s organs, is literally a bridge between body and mind. By understanding this system we begin to see a mechanism that explains how states of consciousness can promote health or disease.”

CBD oil (also known as hemp oil) can provide many benefits with no unwanted side effects so it is no wonder there is such interest of late. As of 2015 there were an estimate 20,000 medical articles in the search of PubMed scientific journals containing the words cannabis plus cannabinoid. CBD oil is legal in a large number of jurisdictions and ongoing research is showing promising results.

According to a recent article on the website

“Scientist have shown that CBD oil has a pharmacological profile very similar to that of nonconforming anti psychotic drugs and has the same anti psychotic effects.”

The list of benefits being discovered and under research is hopeful and encouraging:

-May provide relief from pain and inflammation
-Helpful reducing anxiety in patients with social anxiety disorder
-Reduction in frequency of seizures
-Help reduce nausea and vomiting
-Provides an increased level of alertness, improved mood and better sleep
-Promotes cardiovascular health by protecting against the vascular damage caused by high glucose, inflammation or type 2 diabetes
-CBD oil may also provide relief for those who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, panic disorder, and obsessive compulsive disorder.
-Studies show CBD oil may help patients fight various types of cancer
-Some evidence of protecting against the vascular damage caused by high glucose, inflammation or type 2 diabetes.


CBD oil is legal in the United States and may be bought online.
The list of other countries in which CBD oil is legal is quite extensive:

Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Belize, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Guam, Guatemala, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, India, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Netherlands Antilles, Northern Ireland, Norway, Paraguay, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Romania, Russia, Slovenia, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, U.S. Virgin Islands, Uruguay.


Ancient societies have used the cannabis and hemp plants for a wide variety of things, with evidence being found as far back as 10,000 years. We may be getting the distinct feeling that old is new again…
Ah well such is it to be human. This time around hard science as we know it today is being applied. This gives a measure of comfort to most people, especially when the elderly and young ones need medical aid.

As Thomas Edison stated in 1902 ” “There were never so many able, active minds at work on the problems of disease as now, and all their discoveries are tending toward the simple truth that you can’t improve on nature.”

The cannabis plant itself even uses THC and other cannabinoids to promote its own health and prevent disease. Clearly something good is going on!

Stay tuned for updates on CBD oil and it’s many wondrous benefits.
