Interview with Ron Thiessen, CEO of Northern Dynasty Minerals (TSX/NYSE:NAK)Recording date: 19th September 2023Northern Dynasty Minerals CEO Ron Thiessen provided an overview of the company's giant Pebble copper-gold project in Alaska in an interview at the Denver Gold Forum conference. Thiessen stated over $1 billion has been spent on drilling, engineering studies, and environmental work to advance Pebble, one of the world's largest undeveloped copper-gold-molybdenum deposits.The Pebble deposit contains approximately 57 billion pounds of copper, 71 million ounces of gold, and significant molybdenum and silver. Initial mine plans outline a project producing 300-350 million pounds of copper and 300,000-350,000 ounces of gold annually over a 20-year mine life. The asset has strong economics with an estimated IRR of 16% and NPV of $2.3 billion at a 7% discount rate.While positive economic studies and engineering de-risking are complete, Pebble was denied a key permit in late 2020. Thiessen stated political factors in an election year likely influenced what should have been a science-based decision. Northern Dynasty has subsequently filed an appeal and legal challenge.A pending Supreme Court decision could help overturn an EPA determination against Pebble as soon as 2023. Thiessen sees several upcoming potential catalysts that could unlock permitting and development of one of the world's premier undeveloped copper-gold resources.In the interim, Northern Dynasty has $60 million from a recent royalty sale to fund critical path work. Thiessen noted Pebble remains a highly coveted asset that senior miners around the world would like to develop when permitting risks are resolved.Learn more: https://cruxinvestor.com

Richard Wu, MD, PhD, is a medical oncologist who specializes in skin cancer and melanomas and the early development of new drugs. One of the new cancer treatments Wu is helping to develop is TIL – which stands for tumor infiltrating therapy. T cells in the immune system are programmed to locate and destroy cancer cells. “We take and isolate T cells from each patient's unique tumor and expand them to billions of T cells in the lab and then reinfuse them back into the patient,” Wu explained. Prior to reinfusing the T cell, patients “have received chemotherapy to deplete their immune system to make space for these new T cells. This is a very personalized form of immunotherapy.” The TIL procedure is currently being performed in clinical trials at the James and other leading cancer hospitals. Wu said that the Food and Drug Administration will soon approve a new drug that will make the procedure more effective. The process in the lab “will make the cells stronger and smarter and better able to differentiate between cancer cells and healthy cells … the amount of cells we put back into the patient is critical, we need billions,” Wu said. Currently, TIL is being used to treat patients with a very limited number of cancers, including metastatic melanomas. However, Wu is optimistic that the procedure will eventually be used to treat several other types of cancer. Initial clinical trials are testing the TIL approach for patients with head and neck cancer and triple-negative breast cancer. The early studies have indicated there's a potential efficacy, there are some really exciting signs,” Wu said.
We give you a Film Room Review on all the NFL games from Sunday, breaking down initial thoughts on what we uncovered when watching the games inside the Landry Football Lab. See what a trained eye saw in each of the matchups and make sure that you check back for a more detailed Film Room breakdown once the tape is broken down. From the depths of 60-0 deficit six quarters into their season, and a 21-point third-quarter hole Sunday in Arizona, the Giantssuddenly, improbably, have life. The 49ers have somehow won nine straight in the regular season over the Rams. And Sean Payton and the Broncos — after blowing a 21-3 lead to the Commanders, then nearly tying the score with a 50-yard Hail Mary from Russell Wilson to Brandon Johnson as time expired — are now 0-2.

500 Million Gallons at Hickam AFB In this episode, Andy has a discussion with Paul Bassett, in the car, driving to the Hickam AFB in Honolulu Hawaii. Learn more about ENVOCORE === Andy: Welcome back to a very special edition of the Sprinkler Nerd Show. I'm your host, Andy Humphrey, joined by the one and only the magnificent Paul Bassett live, well not live, as close to live as we can get from the island of Oahu, Honolulu, on the way to, where are we going today, Paul? Paul: We're going to the Hickam Air Force Base, where we're saving a bunch of water by retrofitting out some old, antiquated irrigation systems. Andy: And I think we should, you should give a little background on the Hickam project and why. Why you're here and then we can see if we have enough time to discuss why why I'm here with you But give us some background on the Hickam Paul: project Well, we were lucky to be fortunate to be selected to help the Air Force Base and our client Amoresco save energy and water They're using based on our analysis initially in this particular project over half a billion gallons of water If you are an irrigation professional, old or new, who designs, installs, or maintains high end residential, commercial, or municipal properties, and you want to use technology to improve your business, to get a leg up on your competition, even if you're an old school irrigator from the days of hydraulic Andy: systems, this show is for you. Paul: Um, specifically on the irrigation system, we analyzed them consuming about 300, 350 million gallons annually to virtually apply water to the grass around the common areas and the housing Andy: units. Is that just outdoor water use or is that indoor and Paul: outdoor? Well, the half a billion would have been total. So 350 million approximately annually on the landscape and 150 million. Uh, on the interior homes and Andy: businesses and facilities. Wow. So Envacore though is headquarters in Maryland. How does a company headquarters in Maryland end up securing a project here in Honolulu? Paul: Well, fortunately for us, we do work all over the country, uh, with regards to the Department of Defense. And we've been working with this particular client as long as we've been in business, 15, 20 years. So they trust, we're a trusted partner with them. So we're able to secure projects virtually all over the world with this client. And the client's Amoresco? Client on this one is Amoresco, yes, and they're, they're an energy service company. So what we do is we help them, when they secure projects, develop and build energy and water conservation projects for them that, that pay for themselves and the reduction of the utility bills. Andy: So people oftentimes hear about these projects and hear about opportunities to conserve water and do performance contracting and generate an ROI that has a payback return on the savings, but I don't think a lot of, let's say, industry, Companies and professionals have an opportunity to get involved with them. So maybe you could tell us a little bit more about, you know, about this side of the, of the industry that only a few get to participate in right now. Paul: Well, I think luckily for us, we've found a way. to really parlay irrigation savings into performance contracting. So it's really water savings as a service. And the key to the success that we've had over the years is we deploy and integrate the newest and latest technology to be able to almost in real time watch the water consumption move through the water meters and then report on that information directly to our client. So one of the benefits that we have is that You know, we, we calculate savings based on evapotranspiration and the amount of water being applied to the landscape. But in the real world, you really need the data to prove out the savings that you promised. So in order for our company and my company to be successful, we have to prove year after year that what we calculated in the water savings is real and tangible. Andy: Awesome. So let's go back to, in order to... potential is. Let's, let's go back to when this project first started. When was that? What year were you first involved and how do you actually start looking at a project like this for the first time? Paul: Well, this project has been going on since 2015. Initially there's been a lot of back and forth and up and down and contract negotiations and challenges. But what we typically do is we'll get the water bill and the utility bill and we'll analyze, you know, how much either energy or water. Water is being consumed and we determine from there what either gallons per square foot or gallons per person is being consumed and we'll do a weather analysis and we'll calculate how much water should be consumed by this particular plant in this particular climate and then we look at the utility bill and we say, huh, we think this site should be using 20 gallons per square foot annually and we see it's using 30 gallons per square foot annually. And then right away at that point, we know that we have an opportunity for savings. Andy: Okay. So you do the analysis and then at what point do you actually come on site to do some verification and to look and see if that's actually poor performance with controls, if there's leaks, if it's distribution, when do you come in and do your first analysis? Paul: Well, when we do the utility analysis initially, and then we determine the viability of the opportunity, meaning we deem that there is potential for savings by looking at all of it. Okay. data. And if the data says yes, we think there's an opportunity. Then at that point, we all agree that we're going to engage into a contract and then we're going to deploy folks to be able to come out and actually physically do the audits, run through the irrigation systems, count all the sprinklers, try to determine the flow rates, extract the schedules and controls, and then establish from that point what the actual irrigation system or plumbing system or lighting system is consuming energy and value. I'm going to the Andy: utility bills. Okay. So your team put eyes on every sprinkler on this project several times. Yes. Wow. Okay. So let's talk about the scale of this project so that the listeners can visualize what, what this is. So maybe let's talk about, let's go top down. If you can recall some of the data in terms of how many water sources, how many controllers, how many zones and potentially how many sprinklers. Paul: Well, as I mentioned prior to the, um, Initial conversation, Andy, we initially analyzed that they were using, consuming about half a billion gallons of water through all of the piping network and infrastructure. We then got all the housing unit counts and the peoples and bodies per potties. And we had meter data for all the irrigation. And then once we deemed that, then it was time to get really boots on the ground. And then from that point, we, we really go in and identify all the controllers, all the water supplies, all the valves. We put it all on a map, um, inventory, everything at that point. And, and then we know exactly what we're going to be getting involved with at that point. Okay. Andy: So how many is that? You know, it's one thing to hear a half a billion gallons, but let's flip that over and turn and turn that into number of controllers, number of water sources, sprinkler count. What are those numbers look like? Paul: We were just over 200 controllers on the site that were not battery operated controllers, just standard plugin controllers. We have 135, 140, I believe water connections where the feeding those 200 and some controllers. And then it was over 30, 000 sprinklers that were within the scope Andy: of services. Okay. And those sprinklers include pop up spray heads, three quarter inch rotors, and one inch rotors. And Paul: some drip. Some drip. You know, not much, but some drip. We're phasing the drip out of the scopes. Okay. Well, Andy: there's not a lot of projects opportunity. Well, maybe there are, but they 200 controller retrofit opportunity and 135 water sources. That's a massive scale. And, what I didn't realize about this base before visiting is that it's like a village. People live here. You come through the gate, we're about to, right now, show them our DBID cards. To get access to the base, but this is like kind of Entering a private HOA community that's run by the government you live here you work here Everything happens on the base and maybe because I didn't grow up in the military. This is all new to me There's probably a lot of listeners that are like, yeah. Yeah. Yeah, we know this but to me I guess I thought at first that the base was just military operations I didn't realize that people lived on the base and that all of this housing and infrastructure is managed Paul: Yeah, I mean, again, I think for us on this particular military base, I mean, there's a bunch of soldiers that live and work on the base and they consume water. They have consume energy. They want their grass to look good. I'm just like the rest of us who live in the regular population. Sorry Andy, we were going through the gates. So Andy: I got distracted. Yeah, we going through real time, getting our security checked out right now. Awesome. Thank you. Thank you too. And, uh, I also I should have done my homework, but I didn't realize this is a. a joint base or what a joint base even Really meant and so this is and you can tell me paul. This is the air force and the navy. Is that correct? Paul: Yeah, the official name of the site is joint base pearl harbor hickam okay, and we're we're working on the hickam side, which is the Air Force side of the military privatized housing Andy: because this is a very strategic location for the United States and it's security for the world here in the Pacific. So they have air and sea operations, not really land operations because there's no land here. This is all this is in the middle of the. Pacific Ocean. So we have the air, right? And the sea joint on this base. Paul: Yeah. And ideally if, if you think about how we're working here, it's primarily to reduce the amount of energy and water that the federal government spends on this utility. So we are helping the taxpayers reduce our debt or demand on the utility spent on this base. Andy: And at this point, uh, let's start back. What, when did you start the actual renovations? Paul: Well, once we got the approval to move forward with the construction, we started October of 2022. So we're just about a year and 11 months in into construction, um, which we're about halfway through the project. Um, it was a two year. Construction period. So we're about halfway in and, and we're right on, right on schedule with, with the construction timeframe. Andy: Okay. And I think, you know, let's, let's talk a little bit about, I would love to hear from you. Where, where are you, where do you start? So you did the analysis, you know what you need to change. You've got your, you know, marching orders. Where do you start Paul: first? Well, we were dictated here by the military and the housing folks on where we wanted to start. And there's some specifics that they wanted us to focus on certain areas of the base. And as you know now, Andy, there's multiple... neighborhoods that we work in. There's five distinct neighborhoods that we worked in, so we're, we're focusing on a neighborhood at a time. We're going in and completing that specific neighborhood, getting that fully functioning, getting that up a hundred percent, and then we can start managing the water and the data. And then once we complete a given neighborhood, then we move on to the next Andy: neighborhood. Okay, and do you start with controls and get control of the system and work down to the sprinkler, or do you start with the sprinkler and work back Paul: up to the controls? Well, we have a couple of different crews that we have, uh, deployed on the base. We have one crew that is focused on controls, number one, then we have another crew that we have come in as going to do the flow sensor master valves install. And then the, the final crew, which is the largest of the crews are the ones that are replacing all the sprinkler heads. So ideally we, we just, depending on how the. Workflow is the first crew goes in and starts retrofitting all the controls. That way we reduce or remove all of the standard control systems and then get control with the web based remote opportunity. And that way it's easier for the managers to control the control system remotely while the guys and gals on the ground are really doing the, doing the dirty work. And Andy: what type of controls do you have here? Did you go? Paul: We, we, um, went with weather track, which is, you know, the. System that's been proven beneficial for our company and our clients long term. We've been deploying WeatherTrack for over 20 years. Andy: And, uh, which model Paul: weather track? The ET Pro 3. Okay. Um, and then because there's some complexity of the water supplies, we have multiple controllers on a single supply. We have multiple supplies on multiple controllers. So using their OptiFlow system really helps integrate and manage the water on some of these Andy: complex systems. Okay. At this point, as of today, September 15th. How many controllers have you retrofitted and installed? Paul: Last I looked, we're about 125. So just over halfway, the halfway point of the controls. Andy: Okay, and are of all those 125, do they all have flow sensors and master valves? Paul: Today they don't because we're With the complexity of the digging permits and some of the other things. I think we have about 30 to 35 of the flow sensors installed at this point. Um, and then now we just got approval recently to go ahead and start excavating and some of the other areas to start putting in the flow sensors and master valves. It's just a little more complex with digging and excavating here on a military base. There's a complexity with regards to the, the permits that are required to dig on the site. Okay, so Andy: you've got, uh, I think you said maybe 35 flow sensors. How, who watches those or looks at those and do you have to report on those or what do you do with that Paul: data? Yeah, we have team members that their responsibility is to go ahead and analyze the data every day, take a look at all the reporting, take a look at all of the flow. Um, and then if there's a, there's an anomaly or an alert condition and then we dispatch the folks on the ground to go ahead and analyze and determine what the problem is. Okay. Andy: And as of today, 11 months in, what, what's been the most difficult part of the project so far? Paul: What we've seen is the transition between our services and the existing maintenance services. Like who's responsible for what? A lot of times they just wanted to go ahead and. Push everything on to us and the communication between our team and the existing facilities maintenance team Has been the biggest challenge trying to let them understand that they're still responsible For the neighborhoods that they have been working in and we're responsible for the neighborhoods We're working in so trying to get all of the parties together to make sure we're all working as one has been the biggest challenge Okay, Andy: so let's uh I think let's maybe not bring this to a total close, but let's move to, you know, what we've been working on this week without, you know, exact details. Uh, you know, but maybe we should just talk a little bit about the concept of these very difficult, hard to manage areas that were part of this project that fall outside the standard scope of replacing a controller. And, you know, requiring some, some different type of technology that, you know, we look forward to sharing with the listeners at some point here in the future. And this is not a, a testing ground, but this is a unique application that we're able to deploy some very innovative technology to solve particular problems that traditional industry isn't able to solve. Paul: Yeah. Well, good, good insight, Andy. One of the things that we found on this particular facility is that there's a lot of. Medians that are going through the neighborhoods. Um, and they're running and operating on a battery timer controller. So there's no remote activation or remote monitoring. So what we're doing is we're, we're in the midst of deploying some smart valves. What is a smart valve? A smart valve has more than just one activation. So it has flow sensing and master control and pressure and soil moisture. So what we're able to do is take away that old school just running whatever that time battery controller was and being able to provide remote access into that insight and be able to actuate that valve and monitor that flow remotely. Right Andy: valve to the cloud where there is no infrastructure. There's no wires. There's no control. We just have one valve in a median We can now take that information put it right to the cloud manage it remotely and have all Paul: of the data And that's really what has been extremely fun and rewarding to be able to deploy Some of this new technology into a place where they're just been using traditional controls. Andy: and when it is just a single battery operated controller that is not connected to anything it runs a schedule, right? It does that schedule every Monday, Wednesday, Friday at a particular time and that's part of the water waste issue is there was no Smarter automation just ran like a Paul: Like a clock and that the problem with that is is because of the site so big and it's hard to manage That these things that batteries die and now that area is brown and nobody understands Why or the they never adjust the clock from the summer rotation? So it was running seven days a week and then in the winter time It's still running seven days a week because nobody really sees it So there was really a lack of insight and management of those particular devices Yeah, Andy: and there is outside of this project, there is a really big market opportunity for this technology. And I cannot wait to, uh, share this with the world when we're ready, perhaps at the IA show. For those of you listening, if you would like to join us at the IA show, we may be ready to share a little bit more about what we've been, what we've been working on and what Paul's deployed here at Hickam. Super exciting. Paul: Well, Andy, I know we are going to wrap this up because we got another. Half a day here to finish up this project. Andy: So, and you're going to get dirty, right? I'm going to sit here in the car and edit up this podcast, right? You're going to, you're going to get, get dirty today. Paul: I suppose not much editing luckily for this one today, Andy. Andy: Yeah. This might be one of the podcasts that is totally in the raw, not much editing. So I hope our mics work. Paul's got a mic on, I've got a mic on again, technology, dual wireless mics, just piped into my iPhone right here. So we got to the site. We're ready to finish up our last day. Thank you guys for listening. Keep your eyes open. There are projects like this that are out there. And large or small, there's plenty of projects like this. If you keep your eyes open, you will find them. Any, uh, last words of advice, Paul, for someone looking to maybe, you know, not get out of just installing sprinklers, but expand their business into more of this conservation performance contracting? I mean, Paul: my... Thoughts to that is just keep your eyes wide open, be willing and open to change and test and fail and then succeed after you fail. That's what I've learned. And there's a lot of times with when you're dealing with technology that it doesn't work right out of the box. It's new. It's innovative. It's testing. It's trying. So that's really what we're doing. And what I've done over my career is, um, you test and you fail and you proceed on. And eventually. You're going to get to a point where you're going to find success because Andy: if it were easy, anyone would do it. This is the truth. Awesome. Appreciate your time. Paul. Good week with you. I thank you so much and appreciate everybody listening. Mahalo. Mahalo.

This is TRT World's Daily News Brief for Wednesday, September 13th. *) Death toll from devastating Libya floods tops 5,000 in Derna alone The death toll from devastating floods in Libya's eastern city of Derna has risen to 5,300, the country's official news agency reported. Earlier the International Committee of the Red Cross said that more than 10,000 people have been reported missing following the devastating floods. Initial reports indicate that dozens of villages and towns were submerged by the deadly floods caused by Storm Daniel that struck eastern Libya on Sunday. *) North Korea fires ballistic missiles as Putin welcomes Kim Jong-un in Russia Russian President Vladimir Putin has met North Korean leader Kim Jong-un at a cosmodrome in Russia's Far East. Their meeting underscores how the two leaders' interests are aligning in the face of their separate, intensifying confrontations with the United States. Hours earlier, North Korea fired two ballistic missiles toward the sea, extending a highly provocative run in North Korean weapons testing since the start of 2022 *) Morocco's king visits earthquake survivors, donates blood Morocco's king has shown solidarity with his suffering nation as it counts the dead from a powerful earthquake. King Mohammed VI visited some of the injured at a hospital not far from the epicentre and rolled up a sleeve to donate his royal blood. The earthquake, with its epicentre in the Atlas Mountains, took the lives of more than 2,900 people and injured more than 2,000 others. *) Crimea's Sevastopol under Ukrainian attack — Russian official In the latest in the Ukraine war, Ukraine has carried out a missile attack on Sevastopol in Crimea, wounding at least 24 people. The Moscow-installed governor of the port city said that the missile attack caused a fire at a “non-civilian facility”. Russia annexed the Crimean Peninsula from Ukraine in a broadly condemned move in 2014. And finally… *) What's at stake as Republicans seek to open impeachment inquiry into Biden? US President Joe Biden is set to face an impeachment inquiry. The investigation, instigated by the Republicans, will focus on the business dealings of the president's son Hunter Biden. The White House has dismissed allegations of wrong-doing as baseless and accused the Republicans of “extreme politics at its worst”. And that's your daily news brief from TRT World.

“Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.” Ephesians 6:11Chris Meyer is Manager of Stewardship Investing Advocacy and Research at Praxis Mutual Funds, an underwriter of this program. What exactly is shareholder advocacy and how does Praxis do it?Many people begin by screening or avoiding certain industries or companies based on their values.Screening is a valid approach but has limited power to create real change.Praxis uses seven different impact strategies for investments.Shareholder advocacy is one of these strategies, leveraging ownership rights to drive change.Shareholder advocacy includes activities like writing letters, filing proposals, and engaging in dialogues with company management.The goal of shareholder advocacy is not to chastise or embarrass companies but to encourage profitability while also promoting positive impact.Praxis collaborates with other investors, primarily from the faith community, in their advocacy efforts. How does Praxis work with many other investors, especially the faith community, to advocate for Christian values? Collaboration with others significantly enhances the impact of their work.Coalition efforts with various faith-based institutional investors broaden and deepen their reach.Companies are more receptive when approached collectively by a coalition.Collaborations focus on common interests and shared capacities.Example: Praxis collaborates on human rights and child labor issues, while others may focus on pharmaceutical companies and medication affordability.Praxis takes leadership roles in some engagements and partners actively in others.Prioritization of issues and companies is essential due to limited resources. What kind of preparation goes into this type of engagement? Engagement preparation involves issue prioritization and collaboration with investor partners.Teams are formed, leadership structures are established, and goals are set.Education and strategy sessions, both in-person and virtual, are organized to become well-informed about relevant topics.External expertise is often brought in to enhance understanding.Example: Engagement with Target and Walmart on human rights and child labor issues.Focus is on encouraging robust human rights policies and supply chain enforcement.Pre-engagement research includes reviewing company publications, reports, and industry news.Input from human rights experts and NGOs is sought to understand global supply chain issues.Thorough preparation is crucial for gaining understanding and credibility in engagement with companies. If company dialogues are central to real change, what do these engagements look like, and what makes an effective conversation or dialogue with a company?Meaningful dialogue with company management is the pinnacle of shareholder advocacy for impactful change.Engagement usually starts with an investor letter outlining concerns and requesting dialogue.Initial communication may be with investor relations and corporate counsel.The goal is to engage with decision-makers overseeing the relevant issue, often vice presidents.Dialogues are typically in-person or via video conference, lasting one to two hours or longer.Building strong, trusting relationships is crucial.Success comes when companies see a vested interest in their future success and the relevance of the concerns raised. So what is the end game? How do you know you've been successful in making meaningful change in supportive kingdom values in these engagements?Setting clear goals and ways to measure success is crucial in advocacy.Having a vision of the desired outcome of the dialogue is important.Long-lasting engagements can lose meaning without a clear endpoint.Avoid being seen as a nuisance by the company or becoming their free consultants.Common scenarios for ending dialogues include a company refusing to engage or dismissing concerns.In the best case, all goals are met or exceeded, and the engagement transitions to a monitoring phase to ensure commitment follow-through.Learn more about Praxis at PraxisMutualFunds.com.

We had the pleasure of interviewing Jet Jurgensmeyer over Zoom video!Rising actor and talented musician Jet Jurgensmeyer recently released his latest single, "Falling Too"."Falling Too" showcases Jurgensmeyer's growth as an artist and his ability to captivate audiences with his heartfelt vocals. The song was written collaboratively by Jet Jurgensmeyer, Brian Sauerwald, Kyle Winski, and Pierson Swanson. The production team behind the single includes Jurgensmeyer himself, Dan Frizsell, and Butch Baker and it was recorded at Addiction Sound Studios in Nashville, Tennessee.The song's narrative revolves around a young person's poignant experience with first love. Jurgensmeyer acknowledges the remarkable power of music and songwriting to create stories that can be interpreted in diverse ways by different listeners. While he personally connects with the story, he believes that it will evoke unique emotions and perspectives for each listener.Jurgensmeyer reflects on the song's creative process, revealing that it took shape unexpectedly. As the four collaborators sat down to write, they didn't have a specific idea in mind. Initial concepts didn't quite resonate, but the atmosphere changed when Kyle introduced some progressions he had developed, filling the silence. Brian then began mumbling the start of a verse. Interestingly, Jurgensmeyer had saved a chorus idea on his phone for several months, and when it came time to develop the chorus, he suggested that idea, which resonated with everyone involved.Jet Jurgensmeyer expresses his hope that "Falling Too" will ignite anticipation for his upcoming album and EP, saying “I hope that this gets people excited for the next album and EP. The next list of songs is going to really show where I'm at with my life through my songwriting. Hopefully, people will listen and hear me growing as a person, in my faith, and as I go through life just like the rest of the world.”Beyond the music industry, Jurgensmeyer has made a name for himself as an award-nominated actor, delivering remarkable performances in both comedic and dramatic roles. Notable appearances include the series regular role of "Boyd" on FOX's hit comedy, "Last Man Standing," as well as lending his voice to the lead character, Pip the penguin, in the Disney animated series, "TOTS."In addition to his thriving acting career, Jurgensmeyer has accumulated an impressive list of film credits, including roles in "Cupid's Proxy," "Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie," "Ferdinand," and "American Sniper." He has also made appearances in popular television shows such as "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," "Grey's Anatomy," and "Black-ish."

Interview with Brandon Munro, MD & CEO, and Olga Skorlyakova, VP of Market Strategy for Bannerman Energy (ASX: BMN)Our previous interview: https://youtu.be/w8NJxlyVtvsRecording date: 6th September 2023Bannerman Energy is an Australian uranium development company focused on its large-scale Etango project in Namibia, the world's third-largest uranium producer. Bannerman CEO Brandon Munro and new VP of Market Strategy Olga Skorlyakova discuss how uranium term contracts get signed from a project development perspective.Utilities are showing renewed interest in new uranium supply amid recent disruptions from top producers Kazakhstan and Nigeria. Namibia is a tried and trusted 45-year supplier. Bannerman is now at the forefront with Etango, having completed feasibility studies, pilot plant testing, and advanced engineering design. The project is ready to supply utilities when needed.Term contracting is a long process in nuclear, sometimes taking years from initial discussions to signed deals. Bannerman has time on its side and doesn't need to rush. The company has always taken a patient, conservative approach to developing Etango since 2006. Bannerman is willing to wait for the right market conditions and pricing.The mining licence application was lodged a year ago and approval timing is not prescriptive under Namibian law. The Ministry is currently overwhelmed with applications but Bannerman is comfortable with this timeline given the positive uranium market momentum. The mining licence is the last major hurdle before Bannerman can make an FID.Initial contract volumes likely won't be massive as Bannerman must first establish itself as a reliable new producer. But major utilities can offer scale, e.g. 500,000 lb contracts, to form the portfolio base. Bannerman aims to pick a starting price range that doesn't lock away all upside potential but meets shareholder requirements.The current environment means Bannerman has leverage in negotiating contracts. Utilities need geographic, supplier and pricing diversification. Bannerman offers supply security from a stable jurisdiction like Namibia. Buyers are willing to pay a premium for this.Bannerman has assembled an experienced uranium team, both corporate and on-the-ground in Namibia. This reduces a key execution risk as skilled labour is scarce. The company is leveraged to higher uranium prices given Etango's large size and expansion potential from 3.5M lb to over 7M lb per year. The after-tax NPV more than doubles from $209M to $435M by adding just $15/lb to the assumed price. Sentiment suggests spot won't stop at $65/lb, making Bannerman an attractive uranium investment.
