BioNTech in the pole position
The British Times reported on Wednesday, citing government circles, that the Mainz-based BioNTech could distribute a vaccine before Christmas. This outcome would enable BioNTech and its partner, Pfizer, to outdo the tough competition from the British Company, Astra Zeneca and the US Company, Moderna. Even if it is "only" a lead of two weeks, this will correlate with the assumed positive study results.
Pfizer boss sticks to schedule
Albert Bourda, CEO of Pfizer, recently announced that the Company would apply for emergency approval of its corona vaccine in the United States in November. The FDA approval is conditional on efficacy and safety data being positive in ongoing trials. The US biotech company, Moderna, does not intend to apply for emergency approval until December. After the positive news, BioNTech's share price rose yesterday by over 8% to USD 84.00. The shares were trading at USD 76.00 the day before due to strong selling in the overall market. The high was USD 94.00. If the results remain positive, new highs may only be a matter of time.
The Green Gold
First Mover status has already been achieved by Canadian junior gold production and environmental Company, Newlox Gold Ventures Corp., in the area of sustainably mined gold. The strategy was born by chance. "We were shocked when the results came back from the lab showing that the tailings had a higher grade than the mine plan we were developing at the time..." CEO Ryan Jackson told us in an interview. The reason for the high grade in the tailings was due to decades of artisanal processing, which is only 40% effective in extracting gold.
New focal points set new standards
Newlox Gold, in collaboration with the Norman B. Keevil Institute of Mining Engineering at the University of British Columbia, has developed a customized system for recovering precious metals from artisanal tailings piles, while at the same time carrying out environmental remediation. Artisanal gold accounts for 20% of global gold production. It is a USD 27 billion industry that has been completely neglected by traditional mining companies. The current market capitalization is just CAD 15 million. Newlox has access to 30 historic, prospective gold projects. The fact that Canadians are paying attention to environmental and social aspects is setting new standards, especially in the gold mining industry.
Disappointing stock market debut
The Norwegian hydrogen Company, NEL ASA, is not doing well with partnerships and participations at the moment. The disaster around Nikola, a US fuel cell and battery truck builder, which has been burdened with severe fraud allegations, was already one of the main topics on the capital market this summer. Yesterday came the next, admittedly minor disappointment. The Danish hydrogen Company, Everfuel, celebrated its IPO. NEL ASA still holds 19.9% of the Company, which was spun off in 2019. The placement price was still at NOK 22. However, during the meeting, the price dropped to as low as NOK 15. Considering that hydrogen shares are all the rage at the moment, a bitter disappointment. On the positive side, the Danes were able to place shares worth almost NOK 27 million in a private placement for NOK 22.
