VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - May 11, 2017) - Liberty Gold Corp. (TSX:PLG)(TSX:PLG.W) (formerly Pilot Gold Inc.) ("Liberty Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company will change the ticker symbol of its common shares and common share purchase warrants listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange from PLG and PLG.W respectively, to LGD and LGD.W respectively, effective at the opening on Friday, May 12, 2017. The Company changed its name from Pilot Gold Inc. to Liberty Gold Corp. on May 9, 2017 to reflect our dedicated focus on Carlin-style gold deposits in the Great Basin of western United States. Liberty Gold is led by a proven technical and capital markets team that continues to discover and define high-quality assets. Our core projects are Goldstrike in Utah, Black Pine in Idaho and Kinsley Mountain in Nevada. The Company also holds important interests in two Turkish assets, Halilaga and TV Tower, and has a pipeline of Western US projects characterized by large land positions and district-wide potential that meet our growth needs for years to come. The management group at Liberty Gold is responsible for discovering and/or developing two of the latest seven heap leach gold deposits in the world that are now operating mines, including Long Canyon in Nevada and Karma in Burkina Faso. Except for statements of historical fact relating to Liberty Gold Inc., certain information contained herein constitutes "forward-looking statements". Forward-looking statements include statements that are predictive in nature, depend upon or refer to future events or conditions, or include words such as "expects", "anticipates", "plans", "believes", "considers", "intends", "targets", or negative versions thereof and other similar expressions, or future or conditional verbs such as "may", "will", "should", "would" and "could".

While studying scavenger behavior in Utah's Great Basin Desert, biologists observed an American badger do something that no other scientists had documented before: bury an entire calf carcass by itself.


Patent
Great Basin | Date: 2013-10-03

Methods and materials are disclosed relating to an improved method for amplifying a signal in a diagnostic assay for a nucleic acid, comprising the steps of providing an amplification polymer bound to a nucleic acid analyte, wherein the amplification polymer comprises a plurality of amine groups; binding amine groups on the amplification polymer with a detectable label complex; and reacting under high salt conditions an acetylating compound with amine groups not bound with a detectable label complex.


Composition and methods for amplifying and detecting solution-state polynucleotide targets in a single device are described. In one aspect, a method for a coupled isothermal amplification and detection process utilizes a coated solid support, including a solid substrate, a cationic layer, and a plurality of target-specific probes attached to the coated solid support. Polynucleotide targets in the sample are amplified by an isothermal amplification process involving in situ hybridization onto the coated solid support. The entire process can be carried out with a high degree of specificity under low salt conditions in less than one hour. Further aspects of the present invention include methods for coupled hybridization/detection of polynucleotide targets, coated silicon biosensors optimized for use with the coupled detection systems to provide visual detection of polynucleotide targets under visible light conditions, and kits for practicing in the above described methods.

An in vitro diagnostics analyzer and assay cartridge for carrying out biochemical assays is disclosed. The analyzer includes a tilted clamp assembly for holding an assay cartridge, upper and lower motor assemblies for manipulating the assay cartridge, and an optical reader. The cartridge includes an injection port for receiving a biological sample, a central channel through which the sample passes, one or more processing chambers, one or more reagent containers, a detection chamber, and optionally a waste chamber. The analyzer and cartridge may be used for detection of a variety of analytes, including pathogens for medical diagnostics.

Methods for rapidly detecting clinically relevant mutations in the infectious genome of an agent are disclosed. The methods include use of a novel target and temperature dependent RNase H mediated cleavage of blocked DNA primers to initiate isothermal helicase-dependent amplification of a target sequence such as a sequence in the rpoB gene.
