#ORPH Open Orphan – Launch of STRiVE project

Respiratory viral strains suitable for challenge agents being collected from consenting volunteers


Open Orphan plc (AIM: ORPH), a rapidly growing specialist contract research organisation (CRO) and world leader in testing infectious and respiratory disease products using human challenge clinical trials, announces that hVIVO, a subsidiary of Open Orphan plc, has recently launched the STRiVE project (Seasonal Transmissible Respiratory Virus SurvEy) to collect respiratory viral strains suitable for challenge agents from consenting hVIVO employees. Collection of new respiratory viral strains circulating in the community will allow hVIVO to continually update and broaden its world leading portfolio of human challenge study models.


As part of STRiVE, volunteers with cold or flu like symptoms can send nasal swabs to hVIVO for analysis. Since starting the project, hVIVO has identified over 180 promising virus candidates that could be used in the manufacture of novel challenge agents for its human challenge trials. Viruses isolated include several strains of coronavirus, adenovirus, human metapneumovirus (HMPV), human rhinovirus (HRV), parainfluenza virus (PIV), influenza, and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV).


STRiVE ensures hVIVO can regularly update its challenge agent portfolio with relevant strains as viruses mutate over time. Manufacturing antigenically relevant strains on demand broadens hVIVO’s repository of viral pathogens and could help extend the range of human challenge models it currently offers.


The average UK adult has an estimated 2-4 respiratory infections each year, resulting in billions of pounds of lost output due to illness. Despite familiarity with the negative impacts of cold and flu viruses, remarkably little is understood about the hundreds of viruses responsible that cause illness, including transmission and markers of protective immunity. Using human challenge modelling to better understand such issues could enable future public health benefits and savings.

hVIVO has two decades of experience and expertise in safely conducting challenge studies across a range of respiratory and infectious diseases, including various strains of influenza, RSV, human rhinovirus (HRV – common cold virus), malaria, and asthma. This portfolio has also expanded to include the SARS-CoV-2 virus.


Cathal Friel, Executive Chairman of Open Orphan, said: Despite only commencing recently, STRIVE has already been a remarkable success, with over 180 viruses identified and 12 different strains, with potential to be used as challenge agents in hVIVO human challenge trials. I would like to thank all hVIVO employees who have thus far participated and encourage more to do so in order to continue to build up this important repository for cold and flu research.


“Importantly, the STRIVE clinical research project will play a significant role in the Company’s efforts to broaden its world leading portfolio of human challenge models.


Adrian Wildfire, Director of Scientific and Business Strategy at hVIVO, commented: Access to viable strains of circulating respiratory pathogens is extremely limited and this often presents a significant obstacle to anyone seeking to grow a new viral challenge agent. To grow a new viral strain a virus must be collected from a human host, processed and stored in an adequate manner to keep the virus alive.


“STRIVE will allow the Company to use its expertise to monitor the viral strains of cold and flu that are circulating in the community, and potentially lead to the discovery of new, wild type challenge agents and the development of new human challenge models with unparalleled translation into the field.


Interested in becoming a volunteer?


hVIVO recruits many of its volunteers for its challenge study clinical trials through its dedicated volunteer recruitment website, www.flucamp.com. By volunteering to take part in one of our studies in a safe, controlled, clinical environment under expertly supervised conditions you are playing your part to further medical research and help increase the understanding of respiratory illnesses.

Power Metal Resources #POW – Historic Data Compilation over the Reitenbach Uranium Property Delivers Exciting Results

Power Metal Resources PLC (LON:POW) the London listed exploration company seeking large-scale metal discoveries across its global project portfolio announces an update on its Reitenbach Uranium Property (“Reitenbach” or the “Property”), which is part of the larger uranium portfolio which includes seven 100% owned interests (Table 1) covering an area of 417.24 km2 (41,724 hectares), surrounding the Athabasca Basin in northern Saskatchewan, Canada.

A map highlighting some of the highlight results from the historic data compilation completed on the Reitenbach Uranium Property can be found at the following link:


Reitenbach Property Overview

–      The Reitenbach Property covers a total of 14,646-hectares (c. 146km2) located in northeastern Saskatchewan, Canada. Saskatchewan ranked third in the most recent 2020 Fraser Institute Investment Attractiveness Index rankings of global mining jurisdictions.1

–      The Property is centered around seven Saskatchewan Mineral Deposit Index (“SMDI”) uranium occurrences, and covers a highly anomlous lake-sediment sample of 130 parts per million (“ppm”) Uranium (“U”), the 11th highest (99.9th percentile) lake uranium assay in the Geological Survey of Saskatchewan lake sediment analysis database (“GSSSD”) of 13,195 individual lake sediment samples from the Precambrian Shield area of Saskatchewan. An additional licence was staked recently in order to better cover this highly prospective area (see linked Figure 1)2

–      Reitenbach is in close proximity, or has continguous claim borders with several publically listed uranium companies including Forum Energy Metals Corp., Cameco Corp., and Appia Energy Corp.

–      The Property is prospective for both porphyry-style (incl. thorium-molybdenum-rare-earth element) and metasedimentary-hosted uranium mineralisation.

–      The Company is reviewing multiple strategic outcomes for the Property, including the potential outright sale of the asset. Further updates in respect to the Property are expected in the coming weeks.

Paul Johnson, Chief Executive Officer of Power Metal Resources plc commented:  

“Power Metal has seen considerable interest in the Company’s uranium properties surrounding the Athabasca basin, and we see significant value creation potential through the disposal of certain interests either through direct sale to third parties or the creation of new listings in the London markets.

We are therefore accelerating our property review work to assemble in-depth datarooms for each property.  The review of historical data and exploration results of the Tait Hill property were announced previously and Reitenbach Property is covered in today’s announcement.

Recognising the importance of uranium to our business, we have recruited an additional uranium focused team member who is working with us now to advance our uranium focused interests.

Further updates will follow as material developments occur.”


Power Metal recently completed an in-depth historical data compilation across its entire uranium Portfolio surrounding the prolific Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan, and now possesses a robust fully-digitised database covering all historic work programmes completed across the various Properties, including the Reitenbach Uranium Property.

A total of 10 historic reports were digitised from work programmes covering at least some part of the Property. These date back to 1969, with only one work programme (2007 airborne survey) completed since 1979. As a result, the Property has seen minimal recent exploration.

Reitenbach Compilation Highlights

–      Multiple historic operators noted that the Property has the potential to host either low-grade, large-tonnage porphyry-style uranium mineralistion, or higher-grade, lower-tonnage sediment-hosted mineralisation within unexposed metasedimentary rocks. Two reports highlighted the similarities between Reitenbach and the Rossing Uranium mine (“Rossing”) in Namibia, owned by the China National Uranium Corporation Limited, known as the world’s longest running open-pit uranium mine.3,4,5 The average grade mined from Rossing in 2020 was 335ppm U.3

–      The Reitenbach Property is noted as having less than 1% of exposed outcrop, making traditional ground-based exploration difficult. As a result, historic operators have relied heavily on airborne geophysics and boulder sampling, a technique typically used in northern Saskatchewan where mineralised boulders are mapped in order to vector towards a covered outcrop source of uranium mineralisation. Lake sediment results were originally used as a first pass method in order to determine areas with relative uranium enrichment to be targeted for further exploration.

–      Several high-priority radiometric anomalies were identified on Reitenbach from multiple historic airborne surveys. The majority have now been digitised and can be found on the map available through the link above.

–      Historic results highlighted a NE-SW trending boulder train located in the southern part of the Property, with results up to 5,720ppm U (incl. a result of 2,520ppm U). This area is coincident with both:

1)    the regionally important Needle Falls Shear Zone (“NFSZ”), it is noted that 200km to the SW along the NFSZ is the Duddridge Lake uranium deposit; and

2)    the 130ppm U GSSSD result, the 11th highest lake sample uranium result in the entire province. Further work is required in this area to determine the bedrock source of this uranium mineralisation.4 An additional licence was staked recently in order to better cover this highly prospective area (see linked Figure 1).

–      In the northern part of the Property, at least 8 historic boulder samples grading >250ppm U were digitised, including highlight results up to 2,320ppm and 2,883ppm U. Notably, a 1977 lake sediment sampling programme which oversaw the collection 3,042 total lake sediment samples covering an area of approximately 2,800km2 (including the Reitenbach Property area), returned two extremely anomalous results of 508ppm, and 452ppm U. Both of these results are located within Reitenbach, and they represent the highest two results from the entire survey.5

The Company’s interpretation work continues to uncover exciting findings within the historical dataset from our Athabasca uranium portfolio in Saskatchewan, Canada.

With the fully digitised historical dataset now held by Power Metal, we can continue to add value to the uranium portfolio through our interpretation work.  We anticipate additional updates to the market  highlighting our findings in the coming weeks.

Uranium Property Holding Structure

Power Metal has a 100% subsidiary Power Metal Canada Inc (“Power Canada”), which acts as the holding company for certain Canadian project operations. Power Canada has a wholly-owned subsidiary, 102134984 Saskatchewan Ltd, which is the holder of the Company’s Saskatchewan uranium portfolio.
