    LSG reported encouraging results from its 2014 drill program at the Bell Creek Mine in the area now called the Labine Deposit. They include high-grade intercepts in an untested gap in the Labine Deposit and have identified a number of new, high-grade structures near current mining.

    Highlights include:

    - New, high-grade intersections reported in previously untested gap in Labine Deposit North A Zone and in two new hanging wall structures east of current mining (14.12 gram per tonne ("gpt") over 10.2 metres ("m"), 8.41 gpt over 12.0 m and 7.01 gpt over 10.7 m)

    - Additional new high-grade structure, and intercepts in North A Zone, defined near active mining from drilling on 685 Level, intercepts include 11.42 gpt over 3.6 m, 8.47 gpt over 4.6 m, 7.76 gpt over 8.7 m, 5.96 gpt over 6.5 m and 6.38 gpt over 6.0 m

    According to LSG, the results indicate that considerable potential exists to add ounces at Bell Creek, particularly on the hanging wall, as well as to significantly increase average grades in some areas at somewhat narrower widths. At Bell Creek, LSG's average reserve grade was recently increased to 4.7 gpt and its production this year is on track to increase by more than 25%.

    Vertex Energy (VTNR #3) is an environmental services company that recycles industrial waste streams and off-specification commercial chemical products. Its primary focus is recycling used motor oil. The stock spiked in March 2014 on the heels of 2 significant catalysts. First, VTNR acquired assets of Omega Holdings. The deal was immediately accretive and more than tripled the company’s refining capacity. Second, VTNR posted blowout Q4 results across the board. The company has also benefitted from a 2013 acquisition that helped unlock inefficiencies in its existing refining businesses. In spite of VTNR’s strong run, we caution that the stock is a thinly traded micro-cap with little analyst coverage.
