    Anatara Lifesciences (ASX: ANR) reaches milestone in progression of Phase II IBS trial (w/ David Brookes)

    Anatara Lifesciences (ASX: ANR) reaches milestone in progression of Phase II IBS trial (w/ David Brookes)

    Anatara Lifesciences (ASX: ANR) executive chair Dr David Brookes joins Small Caps to discuss the progress of the company's trial of a potential treatment for the aptly named irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

    The company recently received the go-ahead to enrol patients for the second stage of its pivotal GaRP-IBS trial, which is to be conducted at 5 sites in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.

    Anatara has received highly encouraging findings from Stage 1 of the GaRP-IBS clinical trial and Stage 2 of the trial will progress these promising developments to further efficacy claims .

    Under the trial guidelines, participants will be randomly placed into two groups to take either the optimum dose of the GaRP product selected from Stage 1 or the placebo.

    It is expected that each patient will take approximately three months to complete the trial, which involves a wash-out period and then 8 weeks on the product or placebo.

    While IBS is a fairly common issue, with an estimated 5% to 10% of the world's population currently be suffering from the syndrome, many of those people may well be unaware of what the issue is.

    April is annual IBS Awareness Month with the aim this year to help destigmatise the different types of syndrome people may be suffering.

    Approximately 1 in 5 Australians experience the unpleasant symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) at some time.

    Lithium Universe (ASX: LU7) looks to close the lithium conversion gap in North America (w/ Alex Hanly)

    Lithium Universe (ASX: LU7) chief executive officer Alex Hanly joins Small Caps to discuss the company’s progress with its plans to support the North American supply chain.

    With a strategy focused on Canada’s lithium riches and preferred lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery technology, Lithium Universe is helping to address the gap in lithium conversion capacity in North America.

    The company has pulled together a “dream team” of lithium specialists to drive its multi-faceted strategy in what is one of the most active battery metal markets in the world.

    A major surge in battery manufacturing is anticipated in North America, with more than 20 major manufacturers planning to deploy an estimated 1,000GW of battery capacity.

    At the same time Canada has been rated as the number one jurisdiction in BloombergNEF's Global Lithium-Ion Battery Supply Chain Ranking.

    A key component of Lithium Universe’s mine-to-battery-grade lithium carbonate strategy is its advancing Québec Lithium Processing Hub (QLPH).

    The company has already identified high-grade direct ship iron ore at surface over an expansive area at Bekisopa and continues to add to that with exploration success.

    The company is also investigating the Satrokala iron ore project in Madagascar which offers considerable upside.

    Recent activities have identified a continuous 10km long magnetic strike feature at Satrokala.

    Locksley Resources (ASX: LKY) in the right neighbourhood with Mojave rare earths project (w/ Matt Hartmann)

    Locksley Resources (ASX: LKY) president of US operations Matt Hartmann joins Small Caps to discuss the company's highly prospective Mojave rare earth element project in California.

    Recently appointed to the role, Mr Hartmann has over 20 years of global mineral exploration and project development experience to the new role helping Locksley drive future exploration activity at Mojave.

    The Mojave project is in the right neighbourhood being located just 1.4km of the world-class Mountain Pass project, the only producing rare earth mine in the USA.

    Locksley has already confirmed Mojave's potential with exploration in 2023 in the North Block area of the project returning highly anomalous total rare-earth oxide results.

    It also identified six catchment areas in the North Block area as being prospective for ongoing rare earth element exploration.

    The company's upcoming exploration activities come at a time when global interest in rare earth elements is accelerating, with the US in particular making them a major critical mineral focus.

    International Graphite (ASX: IG6) continues to make strong progress with mine to markets strategy (w/ Andrew Worland)

    International Graphite (ASX: IG6) continues to make strong progress with mine to markets strategy (w/ Andrew Worland)

    International Graphite (ASX: IG6) managing director and chief executive officer Andrew Worland joins Small Caps to discuss the recent breakthroughs in the company’s projects and forecasts of strong market growth for the key battery metal, graphite.

    The company has shored up its balance sheet by reaching an agreement with its major shareholder Comet Resources and received a $1.3 million payment from the Australian Research and Development (R&D) Tax Incentive Scheme for the 2023 financial year.

    The R&D refund provides International Graphite with additional working capital to support the execution of its strategy to develop an Australian battery anode material.

    In mid-February, International Graphite successfully wet-commissioned its new graphite micronising plant in Collie, WA.

    The 200 tonnes per annum qualification-scale microniser is the largest in Australia and a milestone in the development of a domestic graphite industry.

    All these milestone comes at a time when the macro foundations for battery metal industry are strong with EV sales in the US hitting a record last year, while graphite prices are expected to spike after China recently made significant policy changes restricting the export of graphite.
