The Rise of the Junior Gold Miners

Through multiple mining claims and activities, Great Western Mining is proving itself to be one of the most important junior gold miners to watch. They have a vast exploration network, targeting gold from .5 to 1.5 oz. This includes searching at the Huntoon MIne, which consists of 119 full and 12 fractional claims, which cover a total area of 10 square kilometers. The Huntoon mine has a target range of 10,000 to 50,000 oz gold. The gold at the Huntoon Mine was discovered through extensive soil sampling.

Within Great WEstern Mining’s land, they they utilize historical areas that provide the opportunity for secondary recovery. While drilling on their land in 2021, they actually intersected an area of high gold grade.

In addition to the properties that Great Western Mining is already a part of, they are looking to add another – the Olympic Gold Project. The target for this claim is 450,000 to 1,250,000 ounces gold. They currently have a four year option to purchase here. The project includes fourty eight claims. The Olympic Gold Project is located approximately 50 miles from their current existing claims. Olympic Gold is located where two of the major gold trends intersect. While there are multiple targets across this claim group, the primary one is is Trafalgar Hill and the OMCO mine site.

Their initial drilling at this site in 2021 yielded encouraging results, and they do have more drilling planned. Drilling has provided evidence of an extension of the OMCO mine vein.

Great Western Mining is also involved with the Tun claim. The target range for the Tun claim is 5000 to 25000 ounces gold. At the present time, the work in the Tun claim consists of doing soil sampling in the iron oxide zone. There is also potential for the Tun project to become an underground large open pit project.

knowing which startup ventures to invest in and which to avoid

In previous occasions we’ve mentioned that a significant number of startups and entrepreneurs don’t understand that not any project is worthy of investment money for various reasons: growth projections, scalability, market conditions, etc.

Business angels, Venture Capitalists and other financing vehicles only operate for one reason, and that is to make money for themselves and their Limited Partners.

Startups have high mortality rates associated and some studies claim that 80% of investments fail, in the sense that they don’t generate profits for the parties involved. That’s why most investors -be it big funds or business angels- diversify their risk level by backing numerous companies, hoping a handful of them will generate enough profits to compensate the failed investments.

There are three main implications to take into account here:

Profitability: for an investment strategy to work, 20% of the investments not only need to compensate failed ones, but also need to be profitable for the investors. Which means that those 20% need to be VERY profitable. We recommend working with professionals that have real experience in this field, like those from SoFi.
Amount: it’s important to make many small investments for the strategy to work, so that if any of the early investments is successful there is enough money to invest in future rounds.
Time: investors back companies because they want to get returns as soon as possible, but this period of time is certainly not short: it usually takes 3 to 5 years for a US investor to exit a company, 4 to 6 in Europe and 5 to 7 (or more) in Spain.

It’s important for investors to determine their own investment strategies by valuing -more or less- the above aspects.

It’s worth noting that while business angels usually need to create big portfolios of companies for their strategies to work -they invest small tickets in very early stage companies-, Venture Capital firms tend to invest at a later stage. Although this is quickly changing as the capital available in the market increases and as VC firms approach seed investments.

investment strategies startups

Investing properly is not an easy task and implies taking big risks. That’s why the majority of investors have two ways to minimize risk.
1. Risk control

The first way to control risk is by negotiating the valuation of a startup: higher valuations means more risk associated, thus needing to invest more to increase the value.

A different way of managing the risk associated is by using clauses in term sheets, such as:

Vesting: agreement which implies that founding team needs to stay X years at a startup to receive a certain number of shares.
Liquidation preference: it implies that in the case of an exit or liquidation, investors have the right to receive X times their initial investment before anyone else in the company.
Anti dilution: in the case of a later round, the premoney valuation of a startup can never be lower than the postmoney valuation of the previous round in which certain investors backed the company.
Lock-up: it establishes limits to stop founders from selling (or leaving) the company before a certain period of time has passed.

2. Selection and valuation

Managing risk is part of every investor strategy, but so is the process of evaluating a startup. Investors need to analyze a series of internal and external factors that might end up heavily influencing the future of a company.

Here are some examples:

Startup is investable: which implies that it has high growth projections and a possible outcome (exit, acquisition, etc).
Team: a team of founders and early employees that complements each other and fully committed to the project.
Market: if an investor (or founder) wants a company to grow fast in a short period of time, there needs to be a big market with real clients willing to buy your product or service. And what’s even more important, that market needs to be growing.
Competitors: it’s often said that if there’s no competition there’s no market. What investors want is for startups to understand the market they are in and their advantages vs. their competitors. And execute based on such characteristics.
Business model: most investors only back scalable and profitable business models.
Traction: with a few exceptions, most investors will only back companies that have certain market traction (clients, users, etc).
Projections: investors want to know how a company plans to evolve its business over coming months and years, to value whether it’ll be able to generate enough profits over time.
Exit: investors back companies to obtain a return and the way to achieve that is via exits or dividends.

All of the above varies from ecosystem to ecosystem, and while certain aspects apply to more mature markets such as Silicon Valley or London, others make more sense in up and coming ecosystems like Spain or Eastern Europe. If you have any more tips or suggestions, let us know in the comments!

One of the best ways to reduce the risk associated with the first investments is through syndicated co-investments, where a top business angel with an extensive record of startup investments leads a round other co-investors can back up.

We are launching syndicated co-investments soon. If you are interested, please join us and add your investor profile.

Transformation Solution Program Review – Is Bill Phillips For Real?

When I first heard about the Transformation Solution Program by Bill Phillips I didn’t know what to think. On the one hand, Phillips is a well known author who is widely respected. On the other, the program, as it was described to me, seemed to be a bit too hazy, the sort of psychological development programs which I never really liked.

However, when I got the program I read it with interest because I like learning new things in the health and fitness niche and because Bill Phillips has such a great reputation.

What I found is that while the Transformation Solution Program does deal a lot with the mental aspects of personal development, it does so in a way which makes a lot of sense. There’s very little of the new-age mumbo-jumbo that is so common in self-help books which don’t offer any real help at all. The tips in this program are very down to Earth and goal oriented.

Transformation Solution Program is a fitness and fat loss plan. The program begins by helping you to set the right kind of goals. Then, you proceed to learn how to exercise and how and what to eat to boost your metabolism and achieve a fast fat loss. The exercise and nutrition info in this program is top notch. There’s a lot of reference to research and studies so you actually know why you need to do things as Phillips teaches.

You can lose a lot of body fat with these tips. I’ve read testimonials of people who totally changed how they look and feel.

It’s quite clear that Phillips knows his stuff and that he put in a lot of work into creating this plan. But the main part of the plan doesn’t deal with fat loss specifically. It teaches you how to transform your life from the inside out in a variety of ways such as:

– Unlearning bad habits and learning new and better ones

– How to stop striving for perfection and focus on progress instead.

– How to stop punishing yourself for past mistakes and begin living your life from this moment onward.

– How to take charge of your life and accept responsibility for what happens.

– How to develop a positive mindset for success and personal achievement.

– And a lot more.

To call this program a fat loss plan is not accurate. It’s much more than that. It is a plan that shows you how you can change anything in your life which you want to be different, whether it’s to lose weight, get flat abs, or just become a happier person.

How To Detoxify Your Body – Ultimate Reset 21-Day Cleanse Program Review

It’s a proven fact that our natural bodily processes lose efficiency if not properly cleansed. Much of the food we consume is over-processed and unhealthy and our environment, especially in cities, is teeming with toxins. Unchecked, a build up of toxins in our systems is directly linked to cancer, diabetes, obesity and premature aging.

The Centers for Disease Control tell us that obesity in the United States is at epidemic levels, with about 35% of adults and 17% of children and adolescents meeting the clinical definition of obese. The American Cancer Society reports that up to 80% of deaths from cancer involve toxic elements in the environment.

Environmental factors, for the most part, are beyond our control, but we are responsible for what goes into our bodies. The human body responds to an influx of toxins and chemicals by covering them in fat, putting us at risk for a myriad of health problems. Detoxification is essential to keeping the body well-tuned and avoiding weight gain and disease.

A detox or “reset” is a meticulously designed, comprehensive inner body tune-up that can restore your body’s natural vitality in just three weeks. A gentle, no-starvation cleanse can help counteract the effects of toxins and harmful chemicals from the air, water and food we eat.

The detox is designed to restore the body to its optimal “factory settings” to improve energy and focus, help overcome feelings of being fatigued and sluggish, improve digestion, lower cholesterol and regain maximum health. For some people, this means feeling truly renewed and restored for the first time ever.

In Phase 1, you “Reclaim” your body’s natural state, balancing inner chemistry and preparing it for change. In Phase 2, you “Release” the toxic compounds that are clogging your cells and stored within your tissues. In Phase 3, you “Restore” your metabolism to optimal efficiency, while strengthening your body with the nutrients, enzymes, and probiotics it needs to maintain healthy performance.

Supplement formulations are essential to help restore your body to optimal settings. (1) “Alkalinize” helps maintain alkalinity. (2) “Optimize” promotes a healthy metabolism and effective body functions. (3) “Oxygenize” helps provide supplemental oxygen to the body. (4) “Mineralize” adds natural minerals needed by the body. (5) “Detox” helps remove toxins and waste in the colon, and (6) “Revitalize” helps revitalize flora in the digestive tract.

It’s important to remember that a reset is NOT a starvation diet. Each day you’ll eat three healthy, satisfying meals. This is a life-transforming, detox program with proven results. The gradual, systematic approach delivers real, long-term change and a return to your natural state of balance and well-being.

Transformation Solution Program Vs Truth About Abs

In this article I want to review two highly recommended fat loss programs and help you see which one of them is right for you. The first program is the Transformation Solution Program by Bill Phillips and the second is Truth About Abs by Mike Geary. Let’s see how these programs differ from each other.

Truth About Abs is a fat loss program which is marketed as a way to get flat abs quickly. It is the most successful abs program online today and it boasts a variety of success stories among men and women both.

The program doesn’t merely address belly fat. It is a program that helps to tone your body completely. Truth About Abs is based on doing full body strength exercises and following a nutrition plan which is based more on healthy food choices rather than on calorie control. The program includes photographs to illustrate each of the exercises and there is also a version which provides videos of all the workouts.

The Transformation Solution Program is marketed as a generalized fat loss plan and an overall life changing program. The author, Bill Phillips is a well known bestselling health and fitness author and his approach is a more holistic one than that taken in Truth About Abs.

In Transformation Solution, a greater emphasis is placed on what goes on inside of you, on the psychological process which you need to go through in order to lose body fat, get fit, eat better, and maintain your results for years to come. While Phillips does teach you how to workout effectively and what and how to eat (including his own routine), he does so in less detail than Mike Geary does.

Transformation Solution is great for people who feel trapped in a cycle of bad habits, past failures, and lack of self belief and will power. The program provides a variety of techniques to create the right kind of mindset and thought processes to create a more positive lifestyle. I believe it is an excellent plan if you feel that you simply can’t lose weight.

On the other hand, if all you feel you need is some guidance in correct exercise and nutrition techniques then Truth About Abs should prove very effective. It is also cheaper.

Both programs and authors have positive reviews and testimonials. You can lose body fat and get lean with either. Transformation Solution is wider in scope, so if you feel that you’re looking for a total life change, it is the one for you.

Transformation Solution Review

Body For Life author Bill Phillips is at it again! He has a new program hitting the ‘interweb’ that is picking up where Body For Life left off and helping people to transform not only their bodies, but also their heart’s, soul’s, and lives. The Transformation Solution kicks off with some really impressive stories about people who have ‘transformed’ their bodies following Bill’s advice.

Bill then proceeds to share a story about when he was a kid and his Dad would take him and the rest of his family hiking. He used this ‘base and summit analogy to drive home the point that you have start somewhere on your transformation journey and that its vitally important to have clear goals in mind when starting your own transformation.

The rest of this Transformation Solution program goes on to reveal Mr. Phillips 18 Week proprietary program for transforming your mind, body, and soul. He has a knack for picking up where other health and fitness authors leave off and he covers a myriad of concepts that most would never touch (and I think this will be a big reason why so many people will have success following the Transformation Solution program while other programs have failed for them).

In the rest of the Transformation Solution a variety of topics such as Exercise prescription, right nutrition, the community connection, Lifetime intentions, healthy space makeovers, progress not perfection, the Big Forgive, accepting responsibility, and many more cool concepts that are all critical to a successful Body Transformation.

All in all I think Bill Phillips has topped his previous work and has done a great job creating a program that will help people transform in many aspects of their lives. Bill Phillips even said in his book that he has been researching why people successful at transforming their bodies did succeed and how you can do the same as well.

The Transformation Solution Reviews and Testimonials – What Do They Tell?

One of the best ways to judge the effectiveness and quality of any weight loss plan is to see what people say about it. What do the testimonials and reviews of the Transformation Solution program by Bill Phillips tell us about it? What can you learn as someone who may be thinking about using this program to try and lose weight?

The first thing you can learn from these testimonials is that this program does work. There are very impressive success stories from men and women who’ve used this program and lost a lot of weight with it. I, personally, read the accounts of a man and a woman who each lost over a 100 lbs by using the Transformation Solution, and I’ve also read of people who lost 30 lbs or more.

The second thing you can learn is that this is a program that requires a true commitment on your part. From the testimonials I’ve read, it’s quite clear that the people who succeed with this program are those that are serious, determined, and dedicated. You need to be willing to make an effort to do this program, to stick to the workout and eating plan, and to be open minded about the psychological and motivation techniques that Bill Phillips teaches. If you’re not serious about using this program, it won’t work for you.

The third thing you can learn from these user reviews is that this is a program that can work for a wide range of people. Men and women from different age groups and backgrounds have succeeded with it. It’s not limited to a specific type of person. All you need is to have heart and a desire to make a change in your life and you can succeed with this plan.

The fourth thing you can learn is that the physical change brought about by using the Transformation Solution Program also changed other aspects of the reviewers life. They became happier, prouder of themselves, and changed their outlook on life. Naturally, for each person this manifested itself in different ways, but it is still something to not and be proud off.

In conclusion, it’s easy to see that the Transformation Solution Program does work and the results can be quite impressive. However, to achieve similar impressive results, you have to be determined and ready to work hard. If you do, I have no doubt that you can succeed with this plan.

The Special Collectors Edition Transformer DVD Box Set

For the last 20 years the animated cartoon Transformers has been offering plenty of great action for people to take notice of. While the concepts of this program have been a memory for many over the past two decades that is all about to change. The transformer DVD box set is a great option for anyone who enjoyed the show back then as well as for new fans who will want to view Transformers DVD style after they see the new movie that has come out.

With the transformer DVD box set you will get to relive all the action from the very beginning. It contains 15 DVD’s with all of your favorite episodes. You will get a total of 98 episodes that covers the entire first four seasons of the programming. The transformer DVD box set is the best way to enjoy your favorite Autobots and Decepticons. Remember the great changes they could make from robot to vehicle?

Each transformers DVD offers you the best quality viewing as well. Each of the transformer DVD programs allows you to experience the events taking place on Cybertron and the Earth. The interactions between the Autobots and the Deceptions are ongoing as they engage in a war. The Autobots are trying to save Earth from being taken over by the Decepticons. At the same type the Decepticons will stop at nothing to accomplish that goal.

Throughout the Transformer DVD box set you will get to relive the experiences of seeing the Autobots and the Decepticons in action. There are so many great characters that you may have forgotten over the past two decades but you will quickly enjoy them all over again! Optimus Prime is always fair and willing to lead the Autobots in a fearless fight against Megatron and the other Decepticons set on controlling the Earth.

Remember the Autobot Bumblebee who is the smallest of them all? He transforms into a Volkswagen Beetle. However his small size proves to be very useful in a variety of strategies to stop the Decepticons. Cliffjumper is one of my favorites, but his good intentions don’t always pan out because of his impulsiveness. The fact that he transforms into a Porsche says a great deal about his personality.

Let’s not forget some of those amazing Decepticons either. Laserbeak is one of the few Autobots or Decepticons that takes on a form that is not a vehicle type. Instead he is a bird and a powerful scout for the Decepticons. Shrapnel is another one that takes on others forms – that of a stag beetle. He is able to absorb the electricity from storm clouds and use them as dangerous weapons. He is also able to clone himself which can cause serious problems for the Autobots at times.

You won’t be disappointed with the Transformers DVD collection as it is definitely going to be one you will watch for years to come. Children, teenagers, and adults will all find the episodes of the Transformers to captivate their attention.

Is the Total Transformation by James Lehman Right For You?

The Total Transformation by James Lehman is said to have helped thousands of parents effectively stop their teen’s out-of-control, defiant behavior. Can the Total Transformation do just that? They say it’s a “simple, step-by-step program, designed to teach you how to effectively stop your defiant teen’s behavior.”

After reading countless reviews and reviewing the program for myself, The Total Transformation does that. The keyword in the above quote is, “teach you”. As a parent, you can learn certain approaches, problem solving techniques, and how to identify triggers to your teen’s defiant behavior.

One often overlooked concept in parenting a teen, is that you don’t have to participate in EVERY argument with your teen. You simply don’t. Is this program right for you? Are you ready to devote time to it? It will take a very proactive position from you in order to instill these techniques. But, once you do, peace will slowly seep it’s way back to your home.

The Total Transformation can help you manage your teen in many areas.

  1. Problem Solving. Teaching your teen how to solve problems on their own, or together with you, is a major focus of the program. Teens often run into problems and handle them negatively. They don’t know HOW to manage problems without getting angry and defiant. They often scream and lose control of themselves.
  2. Responsible Love and Concern. As a parent, this says, “I love you, but you can’t talk to me that way.” Or, “I love you, but I’m not going to lie to the cops for you.” It teaches love, but also concern. This teaches a teen that they now have to take responsibility for their actions.

These are just a couple perspectives and lessons that are taught in The Total Transformation. The program is less expensive than family therapy sessions or counseling. You can look inside the program or read thousands of reviews from very satisfied families.

the essential laws of chairs explained

If you are looking to purchase a nursery rocking chair you will no doubt have already found that there are many different makes and models to choose from. Ultimately, picking the right one for you will be based on your own tastes, needs, and requirements.

To work out what you need, the main thing to be aware of is the different features between the many models of nursery rocking chairs available and the different benefits that each of these features brings.

Rocking motion

Glider rocker chairs are among the newer and most popular of nursery rocking chairs. The design of these particular rocker chairs has been modified so that the rocking of the chair is smoother and does not jar. The obvious benefit of this is it becomes much easier to rock a baby to sleep since the noise of the motion of the chair is kept to a minimum.


Many rockers are made of wood although there are many different types of wood used in their construction. The key difference is in the weight of the wood used, with heavy wooden chairs being slightly bulkier but also sturdier. This contrasts with rockers that are constructed with lightweight wood to make them less bulky and much easier to move around the home.

Some nursery rocking chairs are produced with natural wood and while they may be a little costlier, they can provide a much better visual look than wood that has been processed. Natural wood nursery rocking chairs not only provide a better visual look, they are recognised as being built to last. This is particularly important if you are considering keeping your nursery rocker as an heirloom.


Although there are chairs that come with footrests, these are not standard across all models. If a footrest is an important feature for you, it is possible to purchase a traditional rocking chair with such a feature, and depending upon the particular model, the footrest may even be detachable.

Back Support

Certain chairs are also built with back support, which can make rocking in the chair a great deal more comfortable and help your posture especially when you are feeding your baby. This can be a particularly important feature if you need to take stress off your lower back so be sure to check if this is included.
No other manifestation of nature’s creative process so creatively displays the miracle of alchemy as does the unfolding of the seed. From a tiny hard kernel, looking to untutored observation like a lifeless stone or pebble, a new plant springs into existence. The light and warmth of the sun beckon the hidden life force within the seed to germinate and come forth. A tender sprout pushes outward into the soil. Soon a pair of leaves emerge from the soil, turning towards the light.

With the correct combination of the elements such as water, air, earth and the sun, the miracle unfolds. From a simple seed emerges a flowering plant. Through nature’s mysterious alchemy, a fragile acorn with time becomes a majestic oak. In like manner, each human has a spirit seed within our souls and an unquenchable divine spark. Just as an acorn might never dare imagine that it could become an oak, or a worm becoming a butterfly, so do we fail to comprehend the awesome creative potential within us.

Yet if we provide the proper elements in the form of inspired thoughts, constructive activity and warm feelings, we find that we begin to blossom in the sacred garden of our limitless potential. Perhaps, life’s profoundest secret is the dynamic seed potential of our being. We unfold the potential of our being. We unfold the potential of our spirit through our actions in life.

Through nature’s artful language, the law of the seed teaches us how best to live our lives. Gardeners were, perhaps, the first philosophers. Gardeners contemplated the mystery of the seed. They drew a conclusion from the wisdom of nature’s school of life. Gardeners understood that they can only harvest what they first planted. If you want carrots then you need to first plant the carrot seeds. Thus gardeners gained insight into the laws of the soul. As it is in the garden, so it is in life.
