Madie died just before 8pm.

Police said that surveillance video from neighbors shows a man carrying what appears to be a BB gun walking away from the scene about two hours after the shooting.

Max, 7, recovered from his wound, but his life could still be in danger.

Investigators believe that the shooter deliberately targeted the dogs and was familiar with them.

'It's deeply affected us, my children, my ex-wife, just me personally – it's been very sad around the house these last couple of weeks since the dog has been gone,' said Charles Mione, the dogs' owner.

'It was a 10 year-old golden retriever. I had her since she was a pup and she was taken away from me.'

Max, 7, recovered from his wound, but his life could still be in danger.

'He has a fragment in him right now that's close to his aorta that the vet is concerned about,' Mione said.

'And maybe one day I come home and he may not be with us anymore. That's a risk right now.'

After an autopsy was performed on Madie, a second BB fragment was discovered in her body, leading investigators to believe that she had been shot before the December 3 incident.

Police are asking for the public's help in locating the unidentified man with the BB gun.

Apparently the long hair on her body concealed the wound which healed on its own.

In October, Madie was taken to the vet after falling ill. The vet believed at the time that she had been poisoned.

Mione said that the family is extremely pained by Madie's loss.

Max has been heard crying and yelping in Madie's absence. The incident has so traumatized him that he now hesitates to go outside.

This is the second high-profile instance of cruelty toward animals in South Florida in recent months.

In October, a pit bull puppy was beaten and stabbed before being stuffed in a suitcase and left to die.

Police in Hollywood, Florida, heard crying coming from a blue suitcase in an abandoned building at around 1am on October 10.

Inside, they found the bloody dog with deep cuts on his head and body.

They took the dog to an animal hospital for treatment and named him Ollie.

Ollie eventually suffered cardiac arrest and died.

Police later arrested Brendan Evans, 31, who is facing 17 counts of aggravated animal cruelty.

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).

Heritage survey[hhmc]
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.

The prospect has a 3-kilometre-long electromagnetic conductor that lies below an outcropping copper-zinc gossan that has been mapped over a 1.2-kilomet..

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.
