The American Board of Quality Assurance & Utilization Review Physicians is pleased to announce the selection of Tabassum Salam, MD, FACP, CHCQM as the recipient of the 2017 CHCQM Diplomate Achievement Award. Congratulations to Dr. Salam who demonstrated an outstanding example of an IT-enabled care coordination system: the Care Link team. Beginning with the development of clinical pathways to standardize the treatment of surgical patients, robust inter-professional care coordination and discharge planning, and the proactive interaction with the Delaware and Maryland Health Information Networks, this Population Health Management project led to positive outcomes in an impressive population of post-surgical patients. Integrating data exchange into clinical workflow is an impressive task; leveraging this data with predictive modeling into a reduction in length of stay, enabling more patients to return directly home after surgery, and reduced readmissions is outstanding. Dr. Salam proudly states that, “The development of the IT innovations for Population Health Management positioned our clinical and care coordination teams to make meaningful and timely contributions to the success of patients who underwent knee and hip replacement surgery in this project. The IT innovations as well as the relationships developed by the clinical and care coordination teams broke down significant communication barriers between the many providers, health systems and post-acute agencies that contribute to the patients' care. The use of a shared population health management electronic health record allow a geographically dispersed team to collaborate on the care of the patients and avoid redundancy of efforts. In addition, the novel real-time admission, discharge and laboratory results feeds from the state health information exchanges arm the whole team with tremendously valuable, actionable alerts that had never been available before.” Patient care innovations under Dr. Salam’s leadership make the impressive work at Christiana Care a benchmark for the rest of the nation. The project clearly embodies the health care quality and management and patient safety principles ABQAURP was looking for in the award selection process. Aligned with our mission, the Care Link team found, “In addition to the technological advances, we did not forget to emphasize the building of relationships with patients, their families and their circle of care. Our team has a much more rounded view of our patients' clinical progress and social and personal needs, and this in turn allows us to guide them to recovery in a far more streamlined manner, while minimizing unnecessary, wasteful clinical activity. We have been able to seamlessly expand this model to the care of other progressively larger and geographically distributed populations in our state.” ABQAURP’s CHCQM Award Selection Panel and association Board Members felt that Dr. Salam’s project, “incorporated all of the elements of a model quality project” and successfully “integrated health IT into clinical outcomes and set a stage for addressing the needs for Population Health and for implementing MACRA.” ABQAURP would like to extend our sincere Thank You to Dr. Salam and all who submitted their outstanding achievements in quality and patient safety that have led to improvement, positive outcomes, and the advancement of Health Care Quality Management and Patient Safety. In accepting the award, Dr. Salam graciously says, “It is wonderful to receive this award on behalf of the team at Care Link, a truly interprofessional group of Population Health clinicians and Information Technology specialists. It is through their persistent hard work that we are able to bring targeted resources to patients and their families at essential healthcare-related moments in their lives. And the best part about the Care Link team is the innovation, development, and expansion continues every day; we are able to grow the network of people benefiting from our Population Health interventions.” Join us at the 40th Annual Health Care Quality & Patient Safety Conference to congratulate Dr. Salam and celebrate all of our Diplomate’s achievements. For more event information, please visit: http://www.abqaurp.org/AnnualConference. Dr. Tabassum Salam is a board-certified Internal Medicine physician. She has been at Christiana Care Health System for over fifteen years. She spent many years as a clinician-educator and Associate Director of the Internal Medicine residency program. In this role, she practiced in both inpatient and outpatient clinical settings and educated resident physicians and medical students.

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Skyline Healthcare Center, a 253 bed skilled nursing facility in San Jose, recently received a prestigious gold designation by the California Nursing Home Quality Care Collaborative Recognition Program.  Health Services Advisory Group, a Medicare Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement Organization that is funded by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is tasked with spearheading the National Nursing Home Quality Care Collaborative in California.  The Collaborative is a five-year project that runs through July 31, 2019 and focuses on supporting the adoption of Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement in skilled nursing facilities through collaborative learning and action networks.  Each participant facility receives a composite score comprised of 13 long-stay quality measures that represent larger systems within the long-term care setting.  Skyline Healthcare Center achieved a composite score which earned the facility a gold designation. “Skyline Healthcare Center is an example of the great things that can be accomplished when skilled nursing facilities commit to clinical and service excellence,” said Christine Zack, Executive Vice President, Chief Strategy Officer, for Mariner Health Central, Inc.  “Recognizing that patients and their families are often introduced to skilled nursing facilities during a particularly stressful chapter in their lives, Mariner Health Central remains committed to providing the necessary support to its client skilled nursing facilities to facilitate the prioritization of quality empathetic care above all else.  While the entire Skyline Healthcare Center team received this designation because they have demonstrated an unwavering commitment to the patient experience, Joseph Colcol, the facility Administrator, is particularly deserving of this recognition.” Mr. Colcol, who has a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering, started his career in healthcare as a Mechanical Plant Supervisor for a hospital in the Philippines.  In 1991, he moved to the United States and worked as an Environmental Services Manager for a skilled nursing facility from Monday through Friday, working weekends as a maintenance man at a second facility while also working full time for the United States Postal Service as a Mail Handler.  Mr. Colcol worked all three jobs for almost eight years but always wanted to become a Licensed Nursing Home Administrator. Mr. Colcol stated “I thought that to be a good Administrator, I should pursue nursing and squeeze it in between my hectic work schedule.”  All of Mr. Colcol’s hard work paid off when he graduated in 2001 with honors and passed the LVN board exam.  At that time, he gave up working for the Postal Service and continued working as an Environmental Services Manager in the morning and an LVN at night.  During that time period, he worked as a Charge Nurse, a Treatment Nurse, an MDS Assistant, and finally a Director of Staff Development. Mr. Colcol further noted “I was lucky to have Administrators who asked me to cover for other Departments when they were on vacation and I took advantage of learning what their job entails.”  In 2008, after giving an in-service on Activities of Daily Living in an Administrator and Director of Nurses meeting, Mr. Colcol was asked if he was interested in an open Administrator position in Hayward.  Eventually, Mr. Colcol became the Administrator of Skyline Healthcare Center where he won Administrator of the Year two years in a row and the facility was also given a Presidential Award for immediately helping victims of calamity during the recent hurricane in the Philippines. Today, Mr. Colcol remains committed to his patients, his employees and the long term care industry and affirms that “with all the changes in the healthcare industry, one thing remains constant at Skyline Healthcare Center. . . Quality of Care." About Mariner Health Central, Inc. Mariner Health Central, Inc. operates under the trade name Mariner Health Care and provides operational, clinical and administrative support services to skilled nursing facilities in California. Mariner Health Central’s client facilities offer skilled nursing, rehabilitation, social and nutritional services, activity programs, and other related services.


NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE US OR THROUGH US NEWSWIRE SERVICES Neo Lithium Corp. ("Neo Lithium" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: NLC) is pleased to report results from its ongoing drilling program at the Tres Quebradas lithium brine project ("3Q Project") in Catamarca Province, Argentina. The main target of the 3Q Project is known as the Northern Target, an area originally identified by surface sampling with an average lithium concentration of 895 mg/L and potassium concentration of 7,694 mg/L that extended for approximately an area covering 4 km by 14 km (please refer to Neo Lithium's press release on July 20th, 2016 and the Company's current technical report). The drilling plan for the season was to complete five drill platforms (with two holes in each platform) in the Northern Target to test the target at depth and three drill platforms (with two holes in each platform) outside the Northern Target to test at depth the areas with surface low lithium grade. This press release present chemical results of 4 drill holes in 3 platforms from the Northern Target and 2 drill holes from 2 platforms outside the Northern Target. No further drill hole results have been received as of this press release and the Company will continue to inform the market as additional information is available. The Company currently has three rigs drilling simultaneously, including two diamond drill rigs and one rotary drill rig. The two diamond drills collect core samples to understand the geology of the salar and send core samples to Daniel B. Stephens & Associates, Inc. laboratory in the US to measure drainable porosity, a parameter needed to estimate resources at a salar. The diamond drill rigs are also used to collect brine samples at different intervals using the "packer" technique. Packers are rubber donuts that isolate aquifers at depth, allowing the sampling of brine at specific depths and therefore monitoring changes in chemistry. Finally, the diamond drill holes are piped and screened and used as monitoring wells (piezometers). At the same platform where a diamond drill hole is completed, a rotary drill is used to drill a twin hole located 10 metres to 20 metres away from the diamond drill hole to make a production well. The well, which is 12 inches wide, is installed with 8 inch screen pipe following the geology found in the diamond drill hole to ensure that the screen matches the aquifer. Downhole geophysics is done in each well to pin point the brine aquifers. Platform 5: located in the center of the Northern Target, immediately south of the 3Q Project brine lake. PP1-D-5: This diamond drill hole (DDHH) identified porous sodium chloride interlayered with sand and conglomerates from surface down to 63 metres. Chemical results (based on 3 samples collected from surface down to 63 metres) yielded an average of 1024 mg/L lithium (including 20 metres with 1,400 mg/L Lithium); 8,080 mg/L potassium with a ratio of Mg/Li=1.66 and Sulfate/Li=0.5. PP1-D-4: This DDHH identified porous sodium chloride interlayered with sand and conglomerates from surface down to 69 metres. Chemical results (based on one sample from surface down to 69 metres) yielded 864 mg/l lithium and 7,482 mg/L potassium with a ratio of Mg/Li=1.85 and Sulfate/Li=0.77. PP1-D-2: This DDHH identified fine sands and thin layers of salt from surface down to 66 metres. Chemical results (based on 6 samples from surface down to 66 metres) yielded an average grade of 766 mg/L of lithium (as reported on the January 10th 2017 press release) and 6,805 mg/L potassium with a ratio of Mg/Li=1.79 and Sulfate/Li=0.32. PB1-R-2: This rotary well is located 20 metres from PP1-D-2. The well went down 80 metres. Chemical results (based on 6 samples collected from surface down to 80 metres) yielded an average grade of 733 mg/L of lithium; 6,738 mg/L potassium and with a ratio of Mg/Li=2.14 and Sulfate/Li=0.5. The small differences in chemistry with PP1-D-2 are within analytical and sampling error. The well is hosted in fine sands over the entire 80 meters, and is considered a single unconfined aquifer. Platform 3: located 2 km south of the southern end of the Northern Target. Results on this platform are very relevant because surface samples from this area showed only 190 mg/L lithium. Finding high grade lithium brine at depth could significantly extend the lithium bearing target to the south of the Northern Target. PP1-D-3: This DDHH identified porous sodium chloride interlayered with sand and fine sands down 60 metres, followed by a massive and porous sodium chloride layer from 60 to 192 metres. Chemical results (based on 7 samples collected from surface down to 192 metres) yielded an average of 528 mg/L lithium and 4,797 mg/L potassium with a ratio of Mg/Li=2.6 and Sulfate/Li=0.63. Platform 1: located outside the Northern Target in the alluvial fan 500 metres east of the 3Q Project brine lake. PB1-R-1: This rotary well identified fresh water from 28 metres down to 38 metres depth and a brine aquifer between 38 and 50.5 metres depth. Five samples were collected in the brine aquifer with an average of 264 mg/L lithium. This low grade brine is interpreted to be a mixture of fresh water and brine and shows the lithium grade of the brine approximately 500 metres away of the 3Q Project brine lake. With the results of PP1-D-3 outside the Northern Target the Company has decided to extend the drill program south of the Northern Target with 4 more platforms and 8 holes that will be drilled down approximately 300 meters. "The results continue to show that the 3Q Project is a unique lithium discovery in terms of high grade, low impurities, size and productivity of the aquifers," said Constantine Karayannopoulos, Chairman of Neo Lithium Corp. "The high lithium grades found at surface are being confirmed at depth across the Northern Target and now we found high grade lithium two kilometers south of the Northern Target, extending the exploration potential of the 3Q Project significantly." Pump tests were completed using a rotary drill hole as a pump well and a diamond drill hole as a monitoring well. The pump used was a 15 horsepower, 6 inch submersible electric pump. Two pump test were completed, a 24 hour long step test and after a minimum 24 hours recovery, a second 72 hour long pump test. These tests are fundamental to evaluate the capacity of the salar to yield brine and measure lithium resources. So far, two pump tests have been completed, one on Platform 2 in the Northern Target and another on Platform 3 south of the Northern Target. These tests are preliminary and further test will be completed to verify these results. Platform 2 Pump Test Results: the pump tests demonstrate that the aquifer (which extends from surface down 80 metres) can produce 60 m3/h of brine, has a specific flow of 7.5 m3/h/m at a flow of 47.4 m3/h and has a storage coefficient (equivalent to drainable porosity) of 0.34. Platform 3 Pump Test Results: the pump test demonstrates that the aquifer (which extends down 60 metres from surface) can produce 200 m3/h of brine, has a specific flow of 116 m3/h/m at a flow of 72 m3/h and has a storage coefficient (equivalent to drainable porosity) of 0.16. "These initial pump test results are extraordinary in terms of production capacity and drainable porosity, and we will do longer pump tests to verify these extremely positive results," said Dr. Perez, President and CEO of Neo Lithium. "In order to illustrate why the results are so impressive, one must take into account that one single hole that is able to produce 200 m3/h of brine at 800 mg/L lithium is the equivalent to 3,500 tonnes of lithium carbonate per year." The brine samples collected in the field were delivered by the Company to Andesmar Transport Company ("Andesmar") in Catamarca city, in the province of Catamarca. Andesmar has delivered the samples by truck to Alex Steward Laboratories ("ASL"), an ISO 9001-2008-certified laboratory in Mendoza, Argentina. ASL used the following analytical methodologies: ICP-OES (inductively-coupled plasma-optical (atomic) emission spectrometry) to quantify boron, barium, calcium, lithium, magnesium, manganese, and potassium; an argentometric method to assay for chloride; a gravimetric method to analyze for sulfate; a volumetric analysis (acid/base titration) for the evaluation of alkalinity (as CaCO3); a gravimetric method to determine density and total dissolved solids; and, a laboratory pH meter to determine pH. All analytical work is subject to systematic and rigorous Quality Assurance-Quality Control. A reference ("standard") sample was inserted into the sample stream at a frequency of approximately 1 in 15 samples; a field blank was inserted at a frequency of approximately 1 in 15 samples; and a field duplicate sample was inserted at a frequency of approximately 1 in 15 samples. Neo Lithium Corp. is quickly becoming a prominent new name in lithium brine exploration by virtue of its quality 3Q Project and experienced team. Already well capitalized, Neo Lithium is rapidly advancing its newly discovered 3Q Project -- a unique high-grade lithium brine lake and salar complex in the Latin America's Lithium Triangle. The 3Q Project is located in the Province of Catamarca, the largest lithium producer in Argentina. The project covers approximately 35,000 ha and the salar complex within this area is approximately 160 km2. Surface exploration results indicate a high-grade lithium target in the northern portion of the salar complex extending for approximately 20 by 5 km with low magnesium and sulphate impurities. Low impurities are a key factor in traditional low cost evaporation techniques for final lithium carbonate production. Hot springs on the property with elevated lithium content are part of the recharge system of the salar complex. The technical team that discovered this unique salar complex is one of the most experienced in lithium salars, having discovered and led the technical work, including resource definition and full feasibility study that established the Cauchari lithium salar as the third largest lithium brine resource in the world. Additional information regarding Neo Lithium Corp. is available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com under the Company's profile and at its website at www.neolithium.ca, including various pictures of ongoing work at the project.

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Feb. 8, 2017) - Alexandria Minerals Corporation (TSX VENTURE:AZX)(FRANKFURT:A9D)(OTC PINK:ALXDF) ("AZX" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that a second drill rig has launched an initial 4,500 meter drill program on its Triangle Too project. This is a part of a larger 12,500 meter wintertime drill program focused on the western Cadillac Break Properties, Val d'Or, Quebec. The Triangle Too drill program is a follow-up to the smaller, first-pass drill program completed last fall. Alexandria, in 6 out 7 holes drilled, successfully located important geological rocks. These host high grade gold veins in the region: diorite plugs, shear zones and gold-quartz veins. Eric Owens, President and CEO of Alexandria, emphatically stated, "We have strong targets for this portion of a program that will ultimately total 7,500 meters. This is an extensive property-wide drill program which we expect will generate follow-up drilling on additional targets as results come in. This undertaking is an extension of our nearby Orenada Zone 4 program, and fits with our goals of resource growth." The Triangle Too drilling activities are located 1-2 kilometers northwest of Zone 4, where Alexandria recently announced intersecting 21.32 g/t gold over 3.95 meters in one of multiple high-grade gold-quartz veins (see Press Release, February 1, 2017). The second drill rig will test several targets on the Triangle Too program. To date, Alexandria geologists have prioritized a first set of 25 targets. These targets are based on geophysical anomalies in conjunction with geologic information gleaned from scattered historic (pre-Alexandria) drill holes. Drill targets will include relatively shallow drill tests of geophysical anomalies, less than 350 meters in depth. These will also include deeper drill holes on gold-quartz vein-bearing diorite plugs, first identified in last fall's drill program, at a depth below 450 meters. The property is located in prime geologic ground: to the west of the East Sullivan Pluton, south of the Bourlamaque Batholith, and north of the Cadillac Break, and therefore with excellent underlying fundamentals. Notable gold and base metal prospects occur nearby, including Mid-Canada (77,778 t grading 7.44 g/t gold and 0.21% copper), Zone 1 (845,000 t grading 4.9 g/t gold), and the East Sullivan Mine (16.5 Mt grading 1.0% copper, 0.33 g/t gold, 10.46 g/t silver and 0.69% zinc). In other matters, drilling continues with the fifth hole of the season on Zone 4. This hole is located 1-2 km southeast and is testing the stacked high-grade veins in this vicinity. Further information about the Company is available on the Company's website, www.azx.ca, or our social media sites listed below: Program design, management, and Quality Control/Quality Assurance are conducted by Alexandria's exploration group of which Phillippe Berthelot, P.Geo, is the Company's Qualified Person. Mr. Berthelot has reviewed the results in this press release. The QA/QC program is consistent with National Instrument ("NI") 43-101 and industry best practices and has been previously addressed in NI 43-101 reports found on the Company's website or on www.sedar.com. Alexandria Minerals Corporation is a Toronto-based junior gold exploration and development company with strategic properties located in the world-class mining districts of Val d'Or, Quebec, Red Lake, Ontario and Snow Lake-Flin Flon, Manitoba.

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - March 2, 2017) - Alexandria Minerals Corporation (TSX VENTURE:AZX)(FRANKFURT:A9D)(OTC PINK:ALXDF) ("AZX" or the "Company") is pleased to report on 3 new step-out drill holes in its ongoing drill program at Zone 4 in Val d'Or, Quebec. New assays from the three holes, assaying up to 11.75 g/t gold over 0.75 metres, significantly expand the known area of the vein sets both along and across strike. Eric Owens, President and CEO of Alexandria, stated, "We have tripled the length of the vein sets since we first began drilling last fall. We are still in the early stages of this drill program, but already the success we are having suggests our geologic model is working, and we anticipate further strong results in the coming weeks." To view "Figure 1. Drill Hole Location Map, Zone 4, superimposed on geology", please visit the following link: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/alexandria_metals_march2_figure1.pdf The multiple veins intersected by Diamond Drill Hole OAX-17-085 correlate well with those in previously released hole OAX-17-084, which is located on the same section (See Figure 2), and indicates potential widths of the gold zone between 20m-40m. Both holes have intersected several high grade gold veins: OAX-17-085, with assays up to 6.21 g/t gold over 1.00 metre, and OAX-17-084, with up to 13.8 g/t gold over 6.50 metres (See Table 1 below and Press Release February 1, 2017). To view "Figure 2. Cross Section, DDH OAX-17-084 and 085", please visit the following link: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/alexandria_metals_march2_figure2.pdf To view "Figure 3. Longitudinal Section Showing Recently Drilled Holes", please visit the following link: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/alexandria_metals_march2_figure3.pdf In addition, high-grade gold veins in historic holes also correlate with some of the high grade zones, such as in hole OU-5-19, which intersected 21.50 g/t gold over 3.80 meters. A re-logging and re-sampling program on the historic holes is underway in order to better resolve those data with the new geologic model. Diamond Drill Holes OAX-17-086 and OAX-17-087 are step-out holes completed below the historic open pit on the west side of Zone 4. These holes tested deeper than previous drill holes (See Figures 2 and 3) where little preexisting information about the gold zone exists. Both intersected strongly altered and sheared rock, which included many quartz veinlets. Hole 086 intersected 5.48 g/t gold over 1.50 meters at 307 meters downhole, and hole 087 intersected 11.75 g/t gold over 0.75 meters at 411 meters downhole. These results show potential for discovery of new gold veins beyond the current inferred limits of the stacked vein sets and show that the veins continue to plunge to the west. Alexandria is in the middle of a 12,500 metre drill program, currently with two drill rigs. One drill rig is working at Zone 4, where it is testing for high grade gold veins within and along the Cadillac Break shear zone. The focus of this program is to better define the continuity, grade and extent of the vein sets at shallow levels, principally above 350 metres. The second drill rig is testing targets on its Triangle Too drill program, 1-2 kilometres northwest of Zone 4, a grass-roots program similarly seeking high-grade gold veins. Alexandria will be displaying drill core from the Zone 4 drilling program at its booth at the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada Convention in Toronto between March 5 and March 8. Please join us at Booth #2716 and find out more about our activities.

INCLUDES 534 GPT AG OVER 8.7 METERS WITHIN 237 GPT AG OVER 32 METERS Kootenay Silver Inc.  (TSXV: KTN) (the "Company" or "Kootenay") is pleased to announce drilling has returned a series of high-grade silver intercepts from the latest 13 holes of a multi-phase drill program being conducted and operated by Pan American Silver Corp. ("Pan American") on its La Negra silver discovery in Sonora, Mexico. The definition drill program on La Negra is part of an earn-in option agreement between Kootenay and Pan American that provides Kootenay with a series of work and cash commitments and a carried to production interest on La Negra. All holes reported are infill and step out drilling down dip on the La Negra breccia. Kootenay President and CEO, James McDonald states, "We are very pleased with results from the 13 holes of our current drill program on La Negra with Pan American. The confirmation of additional, multiple zones of high-grade silver mineralization within a 600 meter strike length of the breccia, remaining open at depth, further underscores the future development potential of La Negra's contained silver resource. We are excited with the continued success at La Negra and look forward to receiving results from the remaining four holes of the program." A summary of the infill drilling within the mineralized zone is provided in the table below: There are currently four additional holes remaining from the 2016 Phase I program with Pan American which will be reported once assay results are received and compiled by the Company. Results from Phase I Exploration and First 11 holes of Drilling Program: Pan American began managing the exploration program in April 2016 and commenced re-logging drill core, geological mapping and re-interpretation, and completed 62 kilometers of magnetic ground surveys. Pan American initiated a 3,500 meters drilling program in July 2016 with the objective of infilling the La Negra drill coverage to 50 meter centres and testing along-strike and down dip extents as well as following up on geophysical and geological anomalies found elsewhere within the exploration concessions. Pan American reported that a series of deeper infill drill holes from the first 11 holes of the current program confirmed high-grade results from previous drilling conducted by Kootenay on La Negra (See Kootenay News release October 25, 2016) as well as the presence of a second breccia zone further to the south, which currently remains open at depth. Based on the initial success of the Phase I program, in October 2016 Pan American increased the drill program by an additional 2,000 meters. QA/QC  Samples were assayed by Inspectorate of Hermosillo, Mexico, using four acid digestion 35 element ICP analytical methods with fire assay for Au and Ag with atomic absorption finish and gravimetric finish, respectively. Pan American has followed a Quality Assurance/Quality Control program comprised of the insertion of blank material and certified standard samples at a frequency of one each for every 20 samples. There is no known drilling, sampling, recovery, or other factors that could materially affect the accuracy or reliability of the data referred to in the table.
