Tasca Reports over 100 g/t Gold at Princeton

RESULTS EXCEED 100 G/T GOLD AT THE NEW PRINCETON GOLD DISCOVERY

VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA, November 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Tasca Resources Ltd. (TAC.V) has received initial assay results from its September, 2018, trenching program at its Princeton gold property.

Significant Points

One bedrock sample exceeded 100 g/t gold and one bedrock sample ran 100 g/t gold.
Two quartz float samples exceeded 100 g/t gold.
Seventeen of 56 samples exceeded 1 g/t gold, including 13 of the 16 quartz vein or float samples
Zone traced over 120 metres, overburden exceeded the 6 metre reach of excavator
Location of Area 2 and trench locations can be found on the accompanying map. Values will be plotted once final assays are received.

"Tasca has always recognized the Princeton Gold Property as one of its significant assets;" said CEO Clive Massey. "These high grade gold results have moved the Princeton Project to the forefront of our exploration strategy and we are now making preparations to follow up with a fully permitted drill program prior to year end."

The excavator trenching program followed up on the earlier Area 2 exploration discoveries, where float grab and in-place quartz rock sampling documented 25 of 37 samples returning gold values in excess of 1,000 ppb with 13 of the 25 samples returning gold values in excess of 10,000 ppb gold, or 10 grams per tonne, to a maximum of 66,237 ppb or 66.2 grams per tonne gold.

The trenching was able to trace the main vein structure approximately 120 metres along strike before the vein zone disappeared beneath thickening overburden cover in both directions. Trenches were cut perpendicular to vein strike with short distances opened in each direction along the vein where possible. Mineralization is confined to the quartz veins or within the first metre of the andesitic host rock. The quartz vein ranges from 0.3 to 1.8 metres in width and consists of white quartz with limonite fractures and irregular limonitic patches and a rare vuggy texture.

Two other areas highlighted by anomalous rock samples or soil samples were tested. Overburden thicknesses were beyond the limit of the excavator boom so bedrock was not reached. These areas will need to be tested by diamond drilling. The five quartz float samples were taken from these two areas. Tasca cautions investors float samples are grab samples and may not be representative of mineralization on the Princeton Property.

Princeton Gold Property

The Princeton Gold Property lies 35 kilometres south of Princeton, British Columbia and 11 kilometers south of the producing Copper Mountain Copper Mine. The road accessible, 4013 hectare property is fully permitted for fifty trenching sites and ten drilling sites.

The Area 2 samples were collected from three separate locations consisting of angular float, sub crop or outcrop of rusty weathered, limonite stained quartz with trace to 5% very fine grained disseminated pyrite. Several of the samples exhibit remnant vugs or cellular boxwork structure.

A 2011 grid soil sampling survey indicates Area 2 hosts multiple, linear, parallel gold-in-soil anomalies with the strongest anomaly striking a minimum of 500 metres to a maximum of 650 metres in a northwestern direction.

About Tasca Resources

Tasca Resources Ltd. (TAC: TSX-V; FWB: 3TA) is a Canadian-based mineral exploration company focused on the acquisition, exploration and development of mineral properties. Our objective is to build shareholder value through exploration and potential development or acquisition of existing projects with significant up-side.

Office of Richard A. Kranitz (N/A:N/A)

As technology is advancing, the legal profession is not exempt. Incorporating technology into a law practice can make the practice more efficient.”

— Richard A. Kranitz, business attorney

GRAFTON, WISCONSIN, UNITED STATES, November 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In his second published article in a series, Wisconsin-based business attorney Richard Kranitz discusses the advancements and impact of technology upon the legal profession, and how it is being utilized to enhance the client experience in terms of satisfaction and customer service. As technology reshapes all of modern personal and professional life, the legal profession is no exception.

This article focuses on research and document management. The complete article will be published on the blog of Mr. Kranitz at https://richardkranitzblog.blogspot.com/

As technology is advancing, the legal profession is not exempt. Incorporating technology into a law practice can make the practice more efficient and increase client satisfaction. In fact, technology may enable the practitioner to exceed client expectations. Here are a few, simple-to-implement options.

Research Efficiency

The internet has placed all of society’s information at one’s fingertips, and again the legal profession is not exempt. The speed of research has dramatically increased. An attorney can analyze a legal matter much more quickly without even leaving the desk. However, that is what clients expect nowadays – instant results.

There are a few tools that can make your job easier. For example, many cases and articles are available for free on Google Scholar (https://scholar.google.com/) or on Findlaw (https://www.Findlaw.com). Most courts post their forms and cases on the Web, reducing search time to minutes and saving you a walk to the courthouse.

Coming back to smart phones, many attorneys today use them even for legal work. A 2016 survey conducted by the American Bar Association found that 88 percent of respondents used smart phones for law-related work. A fifth of them were using research apps, and those numbers have undoubtedly surged since.

e-Subscriptions

To make your law practice more efficient, subscribing to multiple industry-related blogs and news outlets may deliver relevant information right to your email inbox. In turn, you may be able to tailor valuable information to specific clients and send them a proactive communication.

The Cloud/On-Line Repositories

There are many ways to incorporate a secure document repository in your practice. Online document management providers offer some limited client document sharing and also offer full-scale extranets as an add-on. There are many options and price points for achieving the logical benefit of client document repositories.

Web-based software enables a firm’s documents to be securely stored in “the cloud” and provide accessibility from nearly any location. The safety of such storage systems has increased greatly, and allows you to have remote access while on the road or working from home.

For example, you can set up a system whereby the lawyer uploads the documents he/she wants to share with the client and the client accesses them via a secure log-in.

Richard Kranitz concludes that the benefit to the client includes having all the documents for a matter in a single repository, accessible at his convenience, with the lawyer taking responsibility for document management. One can update or replace the documents as needed, thus eliminating concerns over versions. Popular examples include www.litigationservices.com and www.alphareporting.com

To be continued. – The complete article will be published on the blog of Richard Kranitz at https://richardkranitzblog.blogspot.com/

Can Workers’ Compensation Reduce My Chances of Receiving SSDI?

Saffren and Weinberg - Personal Injury Attorneys

It's important for people to understand how workers' comp may reduce social security.”

— Kenneth Saffren, Esq.

Workers’ Compensation Benefits (unlike Private benefits) may Reduce Social Security

Many individuals receive disability payments from sources outside of government (therefore private). Pensions and insurance payments have no effect on Social Security disability payments (you can read our separate article on your Social Security Disability Insurance). On the other hand, workers’ compensation health insurance benefits (along with almost every other kind of government-run disability payments) may reduce an individual’s Social Security monthly payments. Please read our article on having an advocate on your side to make a disability claim.

Any public disability benefits that are paid by the local, state, or federal government may affect an individual’s Social Security payments if the reason for the benefit is not job-related. For example, employees who retire and draw retirement based on disability, civil service disability payments, and state temporary disability benefits.

If an individual receives workers’ compensation or another disability benefits from a public agency and Social Security Disability benefits, then the total amount cannot be more than 80 percent of that individual’s average earnings before the disability.

However, if an individual receives Social Security benefits for a disability and one of the following types of benefits, then that person’s Social Security payments won’t be reduced:

Benefits from the Veterans Administration;
Local and state benefits, (if Social Security taxes were deducted from your earnings); or
Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
How Much of a Reduction?

The Social Security Administration adds together the amounts a person receives for Social Security Disability, workers’ compensation, and/or another public disability benefit. If that amount is more than 80 percent of that individual’s average income at the time of the disability, then that excess amount will be subtracted from the individual’s Social Security benefit.

As an example, if an individual (pre-disability) were earning $1,000 per month, then that individual, the individual’s spouse, and individual’s dependents would receive a total amount of $800 per month. This $800 can be made up of Social Security benefits AND workers’ compensation benefits, but must not exceed 80 percent of that individual’s pre-disability income.

It is the Social Security benefit that is reduced until the total amount of public disability the individual receives is 80 percent of their pre-disability earnings. However, if the other benefit stops, then Social Security will no longer be reduced. Also, once an individual reaches full retirement age (65-years-old), then the reduction will end.

Pre-disability Average Earnings Formula

There are several different ways to calculate the average earnings for someone who has been disabled. The Social Security Administration can help an individual determine which formula will be used in their particular circumstances. Contact them at the Social Security Administration website.

Average Current Earnings Calculations

When the Social Security Administration goes to figure out an individual’s average current earnings, they use one of three different formulas:

High-One: During the previous 5 years of employment the single highest paid year’s average monthly earnings;
High-Five: The Social Security Administration finds an individual’s highest earnings for five consecutive years and uses the average monthly earnings from that time period;
Average Monthly Wage: The administration looks at an individual’s average monthly wages over the course of their work-life.
The Social Security Administration will use the formula that is most advantageous to the individual. This means that the High One formula is used the majority of the time. Whichever formula is used, if the total of an individual’s monthly Social Security payment and workers’ compensation benefit is higher than 80 percent of that individual’s average current earnings, then an offset will apply.

Offset Amount Minimization

The workers’ compensation offset rules allow an individual to minimize a number of payments that are considered in the formula. The following is a list of ways to allow an individual to keep more of their benefits.

Certain Expenses can be Excluded

The Social Security Administration subtracts certain expenses before they calculate an individual’s workers’ compensation settlement amount. Examples of these expenses are rehabilitation fees, dependent support payments, legal fees, and medical expenses (both past and future). Of course, the Social Security Administration requires supporting documentation of all of these expenses. If an individual is Medicare eligible and sets aside a very large amount of the settlement for future medical expenses, Medicare requires that those funds are exhausted before benefit payments start. For more on receiving Medicare benefits with a disability, read our separate article.

Lump-Sum Payments

Sometimes someone who is hurt on the job will receive a workers’ compensation settlement in a lump-sum. When this happens, many individuals look for a way to reduce a Social Security offset. One way to accomplish this is to ensure that the settlement agreement stipulates that the lump-sum amount is spread out over the rest of the worker’s life. This usually decreases the offset enormously, and in some cases, eliminates it completely.

To have the Social Security Administration recognize that the lump-sum payment is to be spread out over the worker’s life, language to that effect must appear in the original settlement agreement (it cannot be added later). Some federal courts have found that these lump-sum workers’ compensation settlements cannot be spread out over an entire life. The courts have decided that the lump sum must be limited to the claimant’s working life. The work injury lawyer simply drafts the settlement documents to prorate the settlement until the disability claimant reaches the age of retirement. Annuities have also been used to the disability claimant’s advantage. However, if the settlement provides for an option to take a lump sum, then the Social Security Administration will use the amount of the monthly annuity payment in the formula to figure the offset.

It’s important to understand that lump-sum payments of past due benefits in workers’ comp are not the same as a lump-sum settlement. A settlement releases the employer (or insurance carrier) from future liability and all future benefit payments. If the payment is merely a payment of past-due benefits, the employer (or insurance carrier) must continue to make timely payments after the lump sum is paid. If no settlement can be reached with the workers’ compensation insurance company, then the case will go to trial. At trial, the judge will usually not provide the claimant with spreading the benefit over the claimant’s lifetime.

The Shift to Social Security Retirement Benefits

Many people say that everything changes at age 65. This is true for a lot of reasons. One thing that changes is that an individual receiving workers’ compensation no longer has to deal with an offset once they are receiving Social Security retirement benefits. Also, recipients who are 62 (or are going to be soon) may be able to apply for early retirement to stop the workers’ compensation offset. This will, of course, lower payments from Social Security each month over an individual’s lifetime, so an attorney with a thorough knowledge of workers’ compensation facts, Social Security law, and the Social Security Administration should be consulted.
