One Degree of Separation
Four girls face the early spring elements but the Grade 7 boys at right just didn’t seem to want to do the same as they round the walking track on the Provost Public School grounds first thing in the morning. The one degree Celsius temperature prompted the two to pull their shirts upwards in an attempt to conserve heat. And unaware of the camera—they seemed to dither while the girls made tracks to get on with the challenge facing them. ©Provost News Photos.

Firm Seeks European, U.S. Money For Potash Testing
2 Groups Eye Area
An Edmonton businessman has recently returned from London, England seeking European investment dollars and is now in New York City taking in a gold and mineral show where he will meet with people to make presentations about developing potash along the Alberta-Saskatchewan border.

Grizzly Discoveries Inc. president Brian (Grizz) Testo was reached by The Provost News by phone on Thursday at his Edmonton office to talk about the business proposal.

Potash is used as a main component in the manufacture of fertilizer.

He originally spoke about the plans in an interview (see PN August 26, 2009) when the Edmonton company was named Grizzly Diamonds Ltd. The name change took place on January 8, 2010.

Even though the market is in a “mini-meltdown right now so it’s hard to raise cash for anything” Testo said on May 6 that a couple of weeks earlier he had been to England where people told him he would be told in June if money raising could be done in Europe to help develop the mining project by drilling test holes. “They are interested in potash.”

Testo and a consulting geologist Michael Dufresne, P. Geol., a principal of APEX Geoscience Ltd. left for New York on Saturday, May 8 to take in the “New York Hard Assets Investment Conference” May 12 and 13. While in that city the pair will make presentations to a couple of American firms that might be interested in the eastern Alberta project.

The firm is trying to raise $5 million initially and then another $10 million.

Principal for Hughenden Public School, Susan Campbell congratulated the graduates and encouraged them all to “pursue your passions and accomplish your dreams.” She, along with Shawna Tainsh, introduced each of the graduates with the help of a slide show which enlightened a full house at the Czar Hall with each student’s background, traits, personalities and future plans.
