On this day in Canadian history, June 17, 1871: Anna Swan, Nova Scotia’s giantess, marries fellow giant Martin Van Buren Bates at St. Martin-in-the Fields Church near Trafalgar Square in London, England. The world’s tallest married couple are a sensation.
Weighing 18 pounds at birth, Anna Swan was famous in Nova Scotia because of her height, long before her discovery by circus legend P.T. Barnum. She worked at his New York museum for many years, nearly dying in the fire that destroyed the original building.

Sediment samples will be analyzed utilizing ICP (induction coupled plasma) for 41 elements, including lithium, potassium, magnesium, boron, and an associated suite of other pertinent elements.
PreveCeutical Medical Inc. (CSE: PREV) provide positive results from research conducted for its dual gene therapy research program.
The siRNA constructs represent the therapeutic”component of the proposed gene therapy and are an important part of the gene therapy approach for potential application in type 2 diabetes and obesity.

Tartisan Nickel Corp. (CSE: TN) has closed the acquisition of the past-producing Sill Lake Silver-Lead property, Vankoughnet Twp, Sault Ste.Marie Mining Division, Ontario.
The Sill Lake acquisition includes 13 single-cell mining claims and four boundary-cell claims that total some 372.8 hectares. Lead-zinc-silver mineralization was discovered at Sill Lake in 1892; since that time sufficient works have been completed so as to define a (historical) measured and indicated resource of 112,751 tonnes of 134 g/t silver, 0.62% lead, and 0.21% zinc.
Talisker Resources Ltd. (CSE:TSK) has entered into three agreements further expanding its land position in the Spences Bridge Gold Belt. These agreements, with separate arm’s length vendors, are for strategic mineral claims covering known low-sulphidation epithermal vein occurrences.
Terry Harbort, President & CEO of Talisker commented, “The continued consolidation of third party claims within the Spences Bridge Gold Belt solidifies our position as a dominant player in this emerging gold district. Acquiring these mineral claims with outcropping vein occurrences allows Talisker the opportunity to focus our ystematic exploration potentially shortening the timeline to discovery.”

The Canadian dollar strengthened it’s position relative to the US dollar this week, due in part to an unusually strong automobile/parts sector.
However, speculation on a worsening China/US relationship drove oil prices downward, hurting Canada’s chief export.
Meanwhile, Canada may seem some relief next week, after Trump promised to “sort things out” with China’s President Xi Jinping during the G20 in Japan.
Canada has been caught in the crossfire since last year, when we detained Huawei exec Meng Wanzhou at the behest of US law enforcement.
Wanzhou is awaiting extradition on charges of fraud in violating Iran sanctions.
