The man who was fatally gunned down outside a Times Square bar was a good Samaritan and father, police say.

Persues Salichs, 32, was shot in the head during the horrific holiday homicide around 4am Tuesday as the Tonic Bar on Seventh Avenue was closing.

Security footage shows Salichs had been assisting a woman, said to be heavily intoxicated, outside on the sidewalk.

Other bar-goers were smoking outside at the time the victim apparently saw the woman had fallen and walked over the help, according to the New York Daily News.

He appeared to ask her, 'Are you OK,' police said of the footage.

Witnesses on the street described the deadly incident as a fight between two men.

It is currently unclear what the fight was about.

'Then a man walks up and shoves him. The victim puts his hands up and steps back. The man pushes him again and then pulls a gun and shoots him.

'It's extremely clear video and shows the actual shooting,' according to the Daily News.

Salichs, a father to three young girls, was just leaving a holiday work party at the time his life was stripped away in the senseless act.

It is believed the victim had been drinking with friends before the shooting.

Salichs was rushed to Bellevue Hospital, where he later died.

Police said the suspect, who was wearing a black skull cap and black jacket, fled the scene on foot, according to the newspaper.

One witness who works across the street from Tonic told NBC 4 he didn't see an altercation, but that the suspect shot Salichs as the victim walked out of the bar.

'There was no fight or anything like that,' the witness revealed.

'It was so quiet. They just came out of the club and we heard the shot.'

Another witness told the station that people were pouring out onto the sidewalk when the man was shot at closing time.

Police are expected to make an arrest soon.

The late Salichs is pictured with his daughters on his GoFundMe page, set up by his 'best friend.'

The individual wrote to the page: 'A senseless act took my best friend, I would like to raise some support for his daughters.'

Strickland Metals shares jump 39% ahead of drilling base metal target near DeGrussa

Strickland Metals Ltd (ASX:STK) shares surged 39% today ahead of its maiden drilling program at the Doolgunna Project, which will include a diamond drilling program that is likely to begin by the end of this month.

As a part of the program, a minimum of four diamond holes will be drilled to a depth of 500 metres to test a VMS target similar to the nearby DeGrussa deposit of Sandfire Resources (ASX:SFR).

Exploration activity has recommenced on the Doolgunna Project following completion of heritage surveys to allow land access to areas where the company wishes to complete exploration drilling.

The target for drilling is a compelling base metal prospect that exhibits geological characteristics that are interpreted to be similar to Sandfire Resources’ DeGrussa deposit about 30 kilometres to the east of the project.

Pan Asia Metals has positive discussions on plans for Thai lithium project

Pan Asia Metals Ltd (ASX:PAM) has had positive discussions with authorities in Phang Nga Province, Thailand, including the provincial government, for its Reung Kiet Lithium Project.

PAM has submitted a presentation covering all aspects of the project including methods of ongoing exploration, conceptual mining and concentrate production, and the potential for downstream value-adding industries in Phang Nga and Thailand.

The presentation and subsequent discussions were aimed at assisting Phang Nga Provincial Government in their considerations for the proposed mining and industrial development areas.

Provincial Government discussions


Pan Asia was recently invited by the chief executive officer of the Phang Nga Provincial Administrative Organisation (PAO), a Phang Nga Provincial Government coordinating body, to represent PAM and the Reung Kiet Lithium Project.

The meeting was also attended by the head of Phang Nga Provincial Industry along with the representatives of the Phang Nga Provincial Public Works and Town Planning Office.

Phang Nga Provincial Industry head has been appointed by the Phang Nga governor as chairman of the Phang Nga New Town Planning Committee.

During the meeting, the chairman of the committee conveyed its support for the Reung Kiet Lithium Project.

PAO wants to ensure that the requirements of the Reung Kiet project are incorporated into the town planning committee’s zoning plans to ensure that the project can progress once exploration and feasibility results prove positive.

“Can bring opportunities”


PAM managing director Paul Lock said: “We have been working hard in Phang Nga province and we are very happy with the positive reception that the Reung Kiet Lithium Project is receiving from the Phang Nga Provincial Government and surrounding communities.

“Reung Kiet is strategically located and based on peer feasibility work the project is positioned to potentially be one of the lowest-cost suppliers of lithium chemicals in the global peer group.

“This is a project that can bring substantial opportunities and value to Phang Nga and Thailand.”

Pan Asia is planning its second Reung Kiet drilling program with expectations that this will begin in the coming months following the conclusion of the current Khao Soon drilling program.

Potential cost curve leader


Reung Kiet is a hard rock project with lepidolite rich pegmatites chiefly composed of quartz, albite and lepidolite with minor cassiterite and tantalite as well as other accessory minerals including some rare earth.

Lepidolite does not require roasting and has a suite of by-products which are recoverable at the concentrator and processing stages of the flow sheet.
