Fathom Nickel CEO Ian Fraser Discusses Company's Expansion Plans and Market Strategy

Fathom Nickel Inc

Fathom Nickel CEO Ian Fraser joined Steve Darling from Proactive to provide insight into the company's progress and future plans. Established in 2015 with a focus on battery metals like nickel, copper, and cobalt, Fathom Nickel aims to secure critical North American metal supplies essential for electric vehicle (EV) batteries and decarbonization efforts. Operating two properties in northern Saskatchewan, namely Albert Lake and Gochager Lake, Fathom Nickel has been actively exploring these sites to uncover valuable mineral deposits. While Albert Lake served as the company's flagship project at its IPO, the acquisition of the Gochager Lake property in late 2022 marked a significant expansion of its portfolio. Extensive drilling efforts at both sites have yielded promising results, particularly at Gochager Lake, attracting attention from the market. Despite challenges in funding simultaneous projects, Fraser highlighted successful winter drilling programs and outlined plans for further exploration, including field mobilization in June and drone surveys to gather crucial data. Fraser underscored the importance of the U.S. market, citing productive engagements at recent conferences in New York. Fathom Nickel's listings on the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE) and the OTC Markets Group have facilitated strong support from U.S. investors. Leveraging governmental incentives for critical metals, the company aims to secure funding for the exploration stage and advance its strategic goals in North America's burgeoning battery metals Contact Details Proactive Canada +1 604-688-8158 na-editorial@proactiveinvestors.com

Shedding Light on Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month

YourUpdateTV

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a rare, progressive, and genetic disease that currently affects about 40,000 people in the United States. CF is the result of a defective gene, inherited from each parent, and the disease can impact people of all races and ethnicities. Recently, KC White, Board Chair of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, participated in a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss the disease, her personal journey, and how the Foundation is helping progress care and treatment options. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/8wj8u0JEqLU CF is a life-shortening disease that prevents our bodies from clearing mucus. This can lead to lung infections, poor nutrition, lung disease, and a host of unique challenges that can impact every aspect of a person’s life. When it was first discovered, it was considered a fatal pediatric disease. But due to transformative advancements in treatments and high-quality care, the life-expectancy for someone born with CF today is 56. While that number is climbing there is still a long way to go and unfortunately, not all people with CF equally benefit from this progress. KC White was elected chair of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Board of Trustees in 2022 after serving on the Board since 2005. Diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at age 3, White has been a committed volunteer and inspiring advocate for the Foundation since childhood and is the first person with CF to serve as board chair. When she was diagnosed, she wasn’t expected to live past high school age, but her family refused to accept that fate, which prompted their dedication to the Foundation’s work. Because of recent treatments known as modulators, about 90% of the CF population (including KC) experienced an incredible transformation in their health. With this though, comes navigating unplanned challenges including careers, finances, family, and more. In addition to fueling the research, particularly in genetic therapies, that will lead to transformative treatments for the entire CF population, the CF Foundation works to support the CF community in all aspects of their lives through support programs and fostering connection opportunities. Every May, the cystic fibrosis community comes together for CF Awareness Month to educate the public about the rare disease, share personal stories, and encourage people to get involved and unite behind a shared mission: finding a cure for all people with CF. The CF Foundation is committed to finding a cure and providing all people with CF the opportunity to lead long, fulfilling lives. The Foundation is aggressively funding research and drug development, advancing high-quality, specialized care, and partnering with and advocating for the CF community. For more information, visit CFF.ORG/CFMONTH About KC White KC White was elected chair of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Board of Trustees in 2022 after serving on the Board since 2005. Diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at age 3, White has been a committed volunteer and inspiring advocate for the Foundation since childhood, speaking at her first Foundation event when she was only 9 years old. She is the first person with CF to serve as board chair. White received her Master of Applied Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania in 2022 and currently serves as an assistant instructor in the program. She is also the Head Varsity Women’s Lacrosse coach for the Chagrin Falls, Ohio, Tigers. She and her husband, Justin, have one son, Mac. About the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is a donor-supported nonprofit organization leading the relentless pursuit of a cure for cystic fibrosis. The Foundation is committed to providing all people with CF the opportunity to lead long, fulfilling lives by funding research and drug development, advancing high-quality, specialized care, and partnering with and advocating for the CF community. The Foundation funds more CF research than any other organization, and nearly every CF drug available today was made possible because of Foundation support. The organization supports and accredits a national network of over 130 CF care centers recognized by the National Institutes of Health as a model of care for a chronic disease. Also, the Foundation manages support programs and fosters connection opportunities for the CF community. Based in Bethesda, Md., the Foundation’s impact is made possible by the work of nearly 70 local chapters across the country. Contact Details YourUpdateTV +1 212-736-2727 yourupdatetv@gmail.com

500NewsWire

NEWPORT NEWS, VIRGINA, May 23, 2024 — On Wednesday, Spine Surgeon Jeffrey R. Carlson, MD, performed the first two-level cervical disc arthroplasty, using the Nuvasive Simplify® cervical disc implants. The surgery was performed at Coastal Virginia Surgery Center in Newport News, Virginia and was a first for the center and this region. The two-level disc arthroplasties were performed on a 50-year-old female patient diagnosed with Foraminal Stenosis, Degenerative Disc Disease, and disc protrusion at levels C5-7. She had a multi-year history of chronic radiculopathy in the right arm, neck, and shoulder pain, which continued to worsen after conservative treatments. The patient tolerated the two-hour surgery very well and was released to go home after three hours of recovery. “My patients truly benefit from the mobility a disc replacement offers”, said Dr. Carlson. “The Simplify® implant is leading the way as surgical and anesthetic techniques improve toward multi-disc replacement.
