Trucking logistics pioneer well ahead of last year’s fundraising pace – with sights set on $5 million

The groundswell of support we’ve received adds fuel to our fire, and also accelerates the implementation and adoption of this long overdue direct network.”

— Rick Burnett, LaneAxis Founder & CEO

ORANGE COUNTY, CA, USA, March 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Sometimes the sequel is better than the original. So it is with LaneAxis, Inc., which today eclipsed the $1 million mark in its Regulation Crowdfund raise (Reg. CF) on StartEngine. LaneAxis reached the $1 million milestone just 16 days into its current campaign. In 2020, LaneAxis raised $1.07 million (the maximum allowed at the time) in approximately three months. That campaign closed out ahead of schedule – with hundreds of hungry investors left on the waitlist.

“Last year we launched our fundraising campaign just as the global pandemic enveloped the globe,” says Rick Burnett, LaneAxis Founder & CEO. “At the time, we anticipated a challenging road ahead given the circumstances. But as it turned out, the circumstances that unfolded – particularly the run on staples such as toilet paper and cleaning products – exposed major fractures and flaws in freight transportation. The LaneAxis Direct Freight Network emerged as a game-changing solution that could dramatically help mitigate such supply chain crises. As public awareness of the LaneAxis solution grew, our momentum began to take on a life of its own – and a year later that momentum continues at full speed.”

LaneAxis is not only benefiting from a fast start in its current campaign, but also from rules changes to Reg. CF raises that took effect in January. Most notably, the SEC boosted the fundraising cap from $1.07 million to $5 million, and also increased the amount certain non-accredited investors can contribute.

Since the close of its initial StartEngine campaign, LaneAxis successfully launched the Direct Freight Network, on-boarding hundreds of new carriers who have been clamoring for a broker-free platform. Freight Brokers routinely consume anywhere from 15 to 50% in commissions, money that is essentially siphoned away from small “mom and pop” trucking companies – which represent about 97% of the industry. LaneAxis is the first “Brokerless” network in the U.S. freight sector, empowering shippers and carriers to connect and do business directly with each other.

LaneAxis has also stepped up its offering by integrating blockchain technology powered by the AXIS token into its platform. All network and shipment data will be stored on a public/private blockchain built on the Ethereum protocol. Among its numerous benefits, the LaneAxis blockchain’s immutable ledger will ensure total transparency, data integrity, and end-to-end chain of custody. Artificial Intelligence will quantify and process this data for myriad uses for all industry players. Critically, AI will also utilize the blockchain-stored data to find available capacity when and where shippers need it most – helping eliminate 20 billion+ empty truck miles per year. AXIS tokens will serve as API keys to access the blockchain and the valuable data contained therein.

“We’re obviously thrilled with the direction and momentum we’ve reached at this stage,” added Burnett. “But the hard work of building out the direct network and blockchain protocol continues. The groundswell of support we’ve received adds fuel to our fire, and also accelerates the implementation and adoption of this long overdue direct network.”

DPM Mining Inc. Announces Creation of a SMART Mining System based on Canadian Patent No. 2853584 Issued Nov. 20th, 2020.

1. SMART Mining Terminology

2. Car Parkade Models Orebody

3. SMART 15m Wide Panel

SMART is the only new mining method invented in the past 50 years. SMART replaces underground stopes and pillars with linked spreadsheets of 1,000t ore cells.

"Miners, bankers, and investors all understand the power and simplicity of a mining method that duplicates a spreadsheet. All aspects of the SMART mining will be explained via 10 EIN press releases.”

— Charles Gryba, Mining Engineer, Inventor quotes

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, March 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Gryba family research company, DPM Mining Inc. is pleased to announce that a key Canadian invention has been issued which allows creation of a new underground mining method that eliminates ore dilution, increases productivity 300% with improved safety. Australian, Mexico, US and other mining country patents have already been issued. Test mining at the Penoles Madero Mine confirmed the technology.

In essence, the Gryba invention coverts mining an orebody from a series of traditional stopes and pillars to a set of SMART spreadsheets. Zero base cost mining and milling a single 1,000 ton SMART cell, then the geological 3D block modelling program quickly calculates the NPV for the life of the mine. Enter new exploration, cost or production data, rerun the model, update management daily or monthly.

History: Canadian Mining Engineer Charles M. Gryba P.Eng. patented the DPM mining method in 1990. The current Canadian Patent explains how to install a continuous, steel reinforced concrete roof on top of concrete posts. The concrete roof ties together 10 DPM innovations developed over the past 30 years thus creating a modern SMART spreadsheet mining method.

The simplest way to explain SMART is to visualize an orebody as a multilevel underground car parkade. The volume of ore between any 4 posts is a cell in a SMART spreadsheet, linking the spreadsheets together mines the entire orebody.

The original idea for SMART started with a 1983 Kidd Creek mine tour observation that the bottom of 30m wide, cemented rock filled (CRF) blasthole stope only arched 1 meter when mined out from below. Gryba with 50,000 hours of mine engineering, budgeting, operating and Noranda Research Centre experience was intrigued. Gryba had developed a strong belief that the industry must invent new mining methods to solve traditional mining problems.

The North American gold standard, “bulk mining method” since 1980 is VCR – blasthole stoping patented in the early 1970’s by CIL with Inco’s help. Block caving is 100 years old. Other traditional methods like cut and fill, room and pillar or shrinkage stoping, were invented by the Romans 2,000 years ago. None of the current mining methods are a good platform for mining innovation. NA mine development and stoping productivity has dropped 3% per year for the past 15 years – CEMI data.

Mining methods in 2021 are still plagued with high dilution, ongoing safety issues from rock falls, declining productivity and increasing costs. Kriged ore grade calculations, combined with complex planning and scheduling software, all add to the opaque nature of underground mining. SMART simplifies mining to a set of linked spreadsheets mined from the top down in 6m lifts, less development work plus quicker production reduces mining risks. As with any invention a few new terms are required.

Image 1 shows a top cut (drift and fill mining), cell size, CRF, and double posting. The red and white colored drifts install the red precast concrete posts and pours the top concrete roof of the parkade. For hard ore, conventional mining equipment is used to excavate 15m wide x any length panels under the concrete roof. Roadheaders are used to mine soft ore. Filled primary panels act as temporary pillars allowing secondary panels to be mined. This gives 100% ore recovery in 1 pass of mining with individual SMART cells having 0% backfill plus close to 0% wall rock dilution.

Image 2 shows an underground car parkade with ramp access. The 1st lift post holes were drilled on a 7.5m x 7.5m grid to match the corners of the SMART cells as per the 3D geological block model. Once a 15m wide panel of ore is mined, a backfill cycle installs a new grid of posts, a concrete floor then CRF. Compression pads bolted to the bottom flange of all red posts allows the CRF and concrete roof to move when ore is mined from below. The critical problem was how to design the overall parkade to support 800 tons of the CRF per SMART cell vs the weight of 4 cars. The load on any red post could be as high as 3200t when it is the common corner post of 4 cells.

The post loading question was solved by Golder FLAC 3D computer mining an 8 cell x 8 cell x 5 lift orebody, round by round, using 10 types or strengths of backfill. A stiff, civil designed parkade failed at the post roof connection. Weak CRF or paste fill caused the roof to sag to far thus overloading the posts. Success – equip red posts with compression pads and use jammed 500Mpa CRF. Post loading reduces from 250tons to 150 tons as you mine down 3 lifts using standard 6% cement CRF. Heaviest post loading was always on the 1st SMART lift and post loads steady state by the 3rd lift.

A $5 million dollar test program was completed at the Penoles Madero Mine in Mexico to mine prove the SMART technology engineering design. Test mining a 15m wide panel was successful. Image 3 visually shows that the roof and posts stayed intact.

Test mining proved the overall SMART spreadsheet, as each cell is the same. SMART enhances just about every aspect of underground planning, economics, mining research and safety. The standardized SMART cell technology is directly transferable from mine to mine and is scalable from 1,000 to 15,000tpd @ 0% dilution. Concrete roofs monitored via load cells creates a safe work environment and allows modern innovations such as mechanical or remote mining, robotics etc. to be safely implemented.

Rather than keeping the SMART technology confidential, 10 EIN press releases will be issued to explain SMART to both the mining and financial markets. Stakeholders include exploration and mine geologists, production miners, retail investors, bankers, fund managers, mining analysts, mine operators, company directors, mine ministers and politicians. To quantify some of the 40+ SMART financial and technical improvements identified to date, 4 well known NA mines will be redesigned using the SMART platform.

Hydrofuel is committed to raising all the funds needed to commercialize several ammonia technologies working with Ontario Tech University.

Hydrofuel will negotiate an exclusive, world-wide, royalty-bearing commercial license with Ontario Tech University for a portfolio of ammonia-related technologies.”

— Greg Vezina, Hydrofuel CEO

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO, CANADA, March 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Hydrofuel Canada Inc. ("Hydrofuel") and Ontario Tech University have signed a letter of intent. This letter outlines an exclusive option to sponsor research projects and negotiate commercial rights to a specialized portfolio of ammonia-related technologies at Ontario Tech University. Hydrofuel has raised $500,000 in capital investments to support this initiative.

In addition to the $500,000 investment to support this initiative, Hydrofuel announced today [March 31, 2021] that it has closed a non-brokered private placement Offering for $1.3 Million.

Hydrofuel CEO, Greg Vezina noted, "Under the terms of the January 27, 2021 letter of intent outlining an exclusive option to sponsor ammonia related research projects at Ontario Tech University, Hydrofuel’s investment of a minimum $500,000 (with or without matching government funding) will be used to begin negotiations with Ontario Tech University regarding the terms of an exclusive commercial license agreement.”

Hydrofuel is committed to raising all the funds needed to commercialize several ammonia technologies along with any additional technologies developed as a result of working with Ontario Tech University.

Under this collaboration, the NH3 technologies that will be developed within one year will include and are not limited to the following:

• Ammonia Power and Heat Engine
• Ammonia as Sustainable Fuel and Hydrogen production
• Ammonia Fuel Cells
• Diesel and gasoline engine conversion systems
• Solar Ammonia Synthesis

Based on the continued success of our collaboration with Ontario Tech University further areas of collaboration may include:

• Electrochemical ammonia synthesis
• Hydrocarbon ammonia synthesis without emitting the carbon or CO2
• Waste Heat Engine and Waste Waters to Ammonia
• Plastics to ammonia
• Direct sequester of CO2 into elemental carbon

Hydrofuel has previously invested $50,000 with matching Mitacs funding for six research projects with Ontario Tech University covering many aspects of the production and use of ammonia fuel and energy.

Currently, a three-part "Sectoral use of ammonia as a clean solution" project is well underway, including the development and experimental testing of an ammonia-fueled power generator, the investigation of the ammonia economy starting from production to last-use in various sectors, and finally, a review of the ammonia economy with a cradle-to-grave pollution and emissions approach.

Professor Dincer and Hydrofuel’s previous NH3 energy research findings "New evidence on greener energy solutions" indicate green ammonia is a promising alternative to fossil fuels with an extensive range of applications:

• NH3 helps reduce life-cycle costs and emissions in numerous transportation applications by more than 50 per cent.
• As a carbon-free fuel, fertilizer, refrigerant, working fluid and hydrogen storage media, NH3 is a uniquely broad green solution to global energy and environmental challenges.
• NH3 is the most environmentally benign transportation fuel compared with gasoline, gaseous or liquid hydrogen, liquefied petroleum gas, diesel, compressed natural gas, electric (where electricity is created from fossil-fuel driven plants*) and hybrid electric vehicles.

*Electricity production in a diesel co-generation plant emits more than twice the amount of greenhouse gas when compared to an equal energy quantity of NH3.

Other Collaborations:

Hydrofuel has announced a three-year commercial demonstration project with Toronto based TFX International Auto Transport to convert diesel generators and transport trucks to run on multi-fuels including ammonia.

About Hydrofuel Inc.:

Hydrofuel Canada Inc. and its predecessor C.A.E.C.- Canadian Alternative Energy Corp. of Mississauga, Ontario have over 40 years of experience in Ammonia energy and fuel systems technologies. Hydrofuel®™ are registered Trade-Marks in Canada, the USA and EU.

— Dr. Rob Headrick

CHATTANOOGA, TN, USA, March 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dr. Rob Headrick has spent his career dedicated to lung cancer. His passion for his patients led to the development of technology to promote efficient mobile screenings; however, he realized that care for these individuals often meant so much more.

“Healthcare constantly changes and we have to be adept in meeting those needs. The mobile unit does this, but there’s another critical piece to the puzzle and that’s in addressing the needs of supporting those patients.”

Headrick found that families, friends and caregivers of patients are often stressed in meeting the needs of loved ones. Some are forced to take a leave of absence from their jobs to care for patients while others are faced with the knowledge that the primary wage earner for the family is dying of cancer. His passion led to an additional purpose: that of supporting patients and those who provide support and care to them.

Throughout the cancer journey, patients and their caregivers have few places to turn for resources. He recently launched the ‘Second Wind Society’ with the goal of providing a resource and place to connect with others willing to share their experiences. Headrick said, “Lung cancer can literally take your breath away, but this group is here to support patients and those caring for them.” Members of the group come from across the country as well as from outside of the U.S. and while they may never meet personally, they know that they now have a resource for their questions and people who are joining them on their journey.

Rita Haskew serves as the conduit for the group. She noted, “Individuals are joining our group every day. They come to us from across the country. Some are patients while others are part of their support system. The commonality they all have is the impact on their lives from lung cancer. Our hope is that they know that this group is a place to ask questions, seek additional support and share experiences along the way.”

The group’s Facebook page, Second Wind Society, allows those impacted by lung cancer to meet in a private group setting. From requests for prayer about an upcoming scan to questions about traveling while being treated, the group shares experiences and offers support.

One member recently posted, “Wow! I was about to say I can't believe the outpouring of prayers and thoughts for my family, but then again, I thought, there's nothing unusual about it. That's how special this group is. [But] I can't begin to thank all of you enough for those thoughts and prayers they truly mean a great deal to my wife and myself and my brother and sisters and their spouses.”

Headrick shares that the group came out of a need to provide and expand services to those impacted by a cancer that is the leading cause of cancer death among both men and women, making up almost 25% of all deaths. Individuals in the U.S. die of lung cancer over breast, colon, and prostate cancers combined. Only 2% of eligible patients participate in available screening. With these statistics and facing the mounting numbers of lung cancer cases coming into his own practice, the Chattanooga, Tennessee-based thoracic surgeon developed a program to screen individuals without them having to come into healthcare facilities.

His team found that while individuals living in more rural areas were concerned about their health, they were not willing to come to hospitals or physician offices, especially during the current pandemic. With so many rural hospitals closing, options for care were becoming increasingly limited. The amount of time taken to complete paperwork and waiting times also added into their concerns and they simply chose to put their health on hold.

Dr. Headrick gathered a team of engineers, healthcare professionals, and industry leaders to develop a mobile unit that could go into communities to provide screenings. Working together, they determined that while individuals might not feel comfortable in more formal settings, they would come out to favorite quick serve restaurants in their communities if they knew they could be quickly and easily screened.

The mobile screening unit consists of a Siemens 64 slice CT scanner and separate waiting area. The staff consists of a driver/ registrar, radiology technician, and advanced practice provider. Individuals enter the unit to complete their paperwork and are then screened. Using the results from the LDCT (Low Dose Computed Tomography) imaging, early lung cancer is easily detected.

Today, the unit travels throughout southeast Tennessee and northwest Georgia with a team of professionals to serve patients. In the midst of the pandemic, they found that the mobile unit has another very valuable use that could be put into play by being deployed to provide vaccine throughout these same rural counties.

Dr. Headrick explains, “We’ve been able to develop best practices around our lung program that can be applied anywhere in the country. Over the last 18 months of operations, we have the data to show this model not only works, but works well.” He added that the program is well-positioned for replication across the country and that his team is available to support growing efforts.

Headrick shared that the combination of having screening readily available and providing support after the diagnosis is incredibly helpful to patients and their caregivers. “At its earliest stages, lung cancer has no symptoms. We know that if we can get screens done early, we can cure lung cancer. The model we’ve built combining accessibility to technology on the front end to emotional and logistical support after the diagnosis saves lives.”
