Datametrex AI President Jeff Stevens: Developing Fake News Filter for Corporate Audience

Datametrex AI President Jeff Stevens outlines the services the company offers, including AI-supported data scrubbing and a fake news filter currently under development.

Datametrex AI (TSXV:DM,FWB:D4G) President Jeff Stevens believes there is plenty of market opportunity for the company’s artificial intelligence (AI) data scrubbing solutions that can be applied across multiple industries.

In an interview conducted at this year’s Cantech Investment conference in Toronto, Stevens discussed the company’s current work with the Canadian federal government, where Datametrex AI provides data scrubbing solutions. He also addressed the company’s move into the cannabis space through the upcoming launch of their Canntop AI subsidiary.

Below is a transcript of our interview with Datametrex President Jeff Stevens. It has been edited for clarity and brevity.

Investing News Network: What are the three most important things investor should know about your company?

Datametrex CEO Jeff Stevens: Three things to consider about Datametrex AI are tied to the solutions we provide. We are an AI company and we collect data from social media, which we then scrub clean. We currently provide these solutions to the Canadian federal government and some of its divisions.

When looking at companies, it is important to understand whether they have a track record, a solution that’s in production and revenue. Those are all key things that Datametrex AI already has with our existing solutions. We continue to develop new solutions to add to and complement our current offering.

INN: What one factor makes your company unique?

JS: Part of what makes Datametrex AI unique is the solution we are developing at the moment, which is a fake news filter. This is very timely given the current landscape where you can’t turn on the news without hearing about ‘fake news’.

This can be built into our existing solutions. It allows us to expand beyond our government contracts, reaching both corporate entities and high-net-worth individuals such as artists and athletes. Everyone needs to protect their brand, and this is a solution that could help in that.

INN: What catalysts should investors be on the lookout for?

JS: One of our near-term milestones is our upcoming subsidiary, Canntop AI. Canntop is being developed to focus exclusively on the cannabis sector. We feel there is massive opportunity in that space. There is going to be a tremendous amount of data on social media that needs to be collected, scrubbed and analyzed. This is exactly what our core technology does.

The reason for starting a separate division is that we want to keep our core technology separate from the cannabis industry. We are moving to a more global audience with our government contracts, and we don’t want to jeopardize that by having cannabis embedded into our core DNA. By creating Canntop AI, we are able to take those proven tool sets and move them into a new industry without jeopardizing what we already have with our government clients.

Western Copper and Gold CEO: We’re Western Copper and Gold for a Good Reason

“We’ve got 21 million ounces of gold and 11 billion pounds of copper in our overall resource at Casino. Very significant from both a copper and gold perspective. So we’re Western Copper and Gold for a good reason,” shared Western Copper and Gold CEO Paul West-Sells.

Western Copper and Gold (TSX:WRN,NYSE:WRN) is currently sitting on a resource that’s composed of 21 million ounces of gold and 11 billion pounds of copper.

Western Copper and Gold CEO Paul West-Sells views this as a significant endowment for the company and its shareholders, as well as for Canada and the Yukon.

“We’ve got 21 million ounces of gold and 11 billion pounds of copper in our overall resource at Casino. Very significant from both a copper and gold perspective. So we’re Western Copper and Gold for a good reason. And that’s where the value is in the ground,” said West-Sells.

In June 2021, the company announced a positive preliminary economic assessment at its wholly owned Casino copper-gold-molybdenum deposit in the Yukon. Western Copper and Gold will conduct a feasibility study on Casino, and it is targeted to be completed by the second quarter of 2022.

“The other big push for us is to get the permitting going. We now have money in the bank, and we just hired a vice president of permitting to move the project. More importantly, we now have Rio Tinto (ASX:RIO,LSE:RIO,NYSE:RIO) as a strategic investor, which was the last piece that was really missing. This is a big project. A lot of ounces, a lot of pounds, a lot of upfront capital to get those out of the ground.”

Western Copper and Gold completed a brokered private placement for aggregate gross proceeds of $8,010,000 that will be used to fund “Canadian exploration expenses” and “flow-through mining expenditures.”

Novo Resources Executive Co-Chairman Michael Spreadborough: Well Financed to Bring Exploration Projects into Production

Novo Resources Executive Co-Chairman Michael Spreadborough said the company has a strong balance sheet to keep advancing its projects toward production.

Novo Resources (TSXV:NVO) recently announced it has intersected high-grade gold at its Talga Talga gold project and has accelerated the near-mine exploration program at its Nullagine gold project in Western Australia. Novo Resources Executive Co-Chairman Michael Spreadborough said the company has a strong balance sheet to keep advancing its projects towards production.

“We are sitting at approximately $50 million cash at the moment, (and) have a strategic investment portfolio that’s worth roughly C$150 million. Our balance sheet is very, very strong with enough horsepower to do the exploration work. We are in a very strong position to keep us moving forward,” he shared.

Novo Resources’ exploration program has been accelerated with additional funding of up to AU$2.5 million to support near-mine exploration. The amount is on top of the previously approved AU$12 million. Novo Resources is aiming to accelerate the delineation of targets in the Mosquito Creek Basin that have the potential to provide additional oxide mill feed to the Golden Eagle processing facility

“We like to play with innovation, we like to be leaders in some of the things that we’re doing. So we’re very focused on ore sorting. Innovation is a big focus in our culture. We’re putting over $15 million a year into exploration as we develop more targets to bring into production,” said Spreadborough.

“We’ve already found good gold discoveries, we’ll probably find more as we do more work. We’ve got the horsepower financially and we’ve got that ability. We’ve demonstrated now that we can take exploration projects all the way through to development and into production. We have the complete skill set. We think we’re in a good position right now to move the company forward,” he added.

Azincourt Energy CEO Alex Klenman: Applying Artificial Intelligence to Uranium Exploration in the Athabasca Basin

“Nobody’s really applying artificial intelligence into the uranium exploration in the Athabasca, and so we might be a first mover,” said Azincourt Energy CEO Alex Klenman.

Azincourt Energy (TSXV:AAZ,OTCQB:AZURF,FWB:A0U2) CEO Alex Klenman discussed the company’s pioneering initiatives to bring artificial intelligence (AI), data mining and rapid algorithm work into mining exploration.

Azincourt Energy recently entered into an agreement with FOBI AI (TSXV:FOBI) to apply its established AI and applications “to support Azincourt’s goal of making discovery and delineating a resource at its East Preston uranium project,” according to a press release.

“Nobody’s really applying AI into the uranium exploration in the Athabasca, and so we might be a first mover. We’d like to embrace new technology and see how it can make us more efficient,” said Azincourt Energy CEO Alex Klenman.

According to Klenman, the ultimate goal is to utilize technology to allow Azincourt Energy to make discoveries more quickly, with less impact on the environment and with fewer dollars spent on drill holes and exploration initiatives.

The company recently closed the final tranche of a private placement worth $8 million, which will be used to fund the development of the East Preston uranium project. The flagship East Preston project covers over 25,000 hectares in the Western Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan.

“We’re heading into our drill program in the winter, and we’re going to do 30 to 35 holes. We’re exceeding the entire pre-run here for four years. We have strong institutional support from funds, which allows us to get more aggressive. Our timing looks really good. We’re excited to be cashed up and doing our biggest drill program and the best market we’ve seen since 2011,” shared Azincourt Energy CEO Alex Klenman.
