Increased patient access


THC Global CEO Ken Charteris said: “We are very pleased to have acquired Tetra Health. Through this acquisition, we will be able to rapidly increase the number of Australian patients can access cannabis, including our own high-quality low patient cost products.”

The companys shares were as much as 13% higher in early trade to 34 cents.

Tetra has developed a proprietary patient engagement and monitoring solution enabling:

  • Secure patient onboarding;
  • Automation of Special Approval Scheme and Therapeutic Goods Administration applications;
  • Better patient management and ongoing monitoring through Tetras specialist nurses;
  • Follow-up physician consultations; and
  • Unique, valuable patient data accumulation for medicines producers.

The majority of Tetra patients attend physician consultations using a web-based telehealth platform, however, Tetra also processes patients through its growing prescribing physician network.

Revenue is generated primarily from patient consultation fees and from the supply of de-identified data and evidence generated from patient management.

Through its physician network and digital health platform, Tetra collects valuable real-world evidence generated during the patient onboarding and management process.

Data highly sought after


This data is highly sought after by producers of medicines as it can be used to enable data-driven product decisions and actionable treatment insights to assist in clinical trials or observational study designs that advance the safety and efficacy of medical cannabis in Australia.

Tetra has a number of global medicinal cannabis producers signed to agreements to access this data on their own products.

Charteris said: “Going forward, we will look to further broaden the current network and potentially expand across the Tasman and other regions.

“THC Global believes this acquisition will deliver exceptional value to our shareholders.”

Share sale agreement


Total consideration for the acquisition is $2.5 million in THC shares and $500,000 in cash to be paid to vendors over six months as well as 5 million unlisted options exercisable at 40 cents expiring two years after issue.

In line with a share sale agreement, completion of the acquisition is expected to occur on or around Monday, May 25, 2020.

If the vendors exercise their unlisted options, the company will receive a further $2 million in cash from the vendors.

Increasing accessibility


Tetra and THC Global are well equipped to rapidly increase the number of Australian patients using legal medicinal cannabis medicines, by increasing accessibility through simplifying the process of doctors consultations and TGA approvals, as well as supplying the companys high-quality, low patient cost medicinal cannabis medicines.

Tetra generates revenue primarily from patient consultation fees and from the supply of de-identified data and evidence generated from patient management.

On acquisition, Tetra will be operating at cash flow breakeven, with an expectation of near-term profitability as patient numbers increase through 2020.

Following the acquisition, Tetra will remain a product-agnostic solution for patients and medical professionals accessing medicinal cannabis under the Australian regulatory scheme.

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 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.
