Dakota Territory Resource Corp. (DTRC)

OTC Markets Group, Innovative Marketing, and UltimatePennyStock reported earlier on Dakota Territory Resource Corp. (DTRC), and we are reporting on the Company today, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Dakota Territory Resource Corp.’s emphasis is on the acquisition and responsible exploration and development of high caliber gold properties in the Black Hills of South Dakota.

All of these are in the heart of the Homestake District. Dakota Territory Resource is based in Reno, Nevada and the Company lists on the OTC Markets.

The Blind Gold Property is Dakota’s flagship property. It is a target for Tertiary-aged and Iron-formation gold mineralization. The Blind Gold Property is around four miles northwest and on structural trend with the historic Homestake Gold Mine. The Homestake Gold Mine produced roughly 40 million ounces of gold through its 125-year production history. It is the largest iron-formation-hosted gold deposit in the world.

In March of last year, Dakota Territory Resource announced that its intention is to continue its sampling program along trend of the zone of high grade gold mineralization identified by the first pass surface sampling program conducted on its 100 percent owned Blind Gold Property. The program identified a zone of high-grade gold mineralization in the Mississippian-age Pahasapa Limestone on the surface, with a peak gold assay value of 9.44 grams per tonne. The Company is preparing for drilling in the Homestake Gold District of South Dakota.

Its City Creek Property is a target for Homestake iron-formation gold mineralization. City Creek consists of 21 unpatented lode mining claims located one-mile northeast of the Homestake Open Cut and one-mile northwest of the City of Deadwood.

The Homestake Paleoplacer Property consists of 13 unpatented lode mining claims positioned one-mile north of the Homestake Open Cut. Dakota Territory Resource based the acquisition of its Black Hills property position on more than 44 years of combined mining and exploration experience in the Homestake District.

This past April, Dakota Territory Resource announced that it entered into agreements with Trucano Novelty, Inc. to acquire a combination of surface and mineral title to 284 acres located in the Homestake District of the Northern Black Hills of South Dakota. Dakota’s property acquisition is consistent with its business development strategy of expanding its high quality mining interests within the Homestake District. The Company now holds approximately 3,341 acres in the core of the district.

In May, Dakota Territory Resource announced that its research of historic data identified high grade gold mineralization under Dakota Territory's recently acquired property at Maitland. In the 1960's, Homestake Mining Company collared diamond drill hole # 6091A at the western fringe of the Maitland Mine and drilled at a -50-degree angle to the southwest across Dakota Territory's recent land acquisition.

The hole was drilled to a total depth of 137.5 meters. This includes an 11.3-meter-long intercept from 111.2 meters to 122.5 meters down hole containing 5.18 grams per tonne gold. The gold intercept in diamond drill hole #6091A was in the Precambrian Poorman - Homestake - Ellison stratigraphic sequence, which hosted the 40 million-ounce Homestake gold deposit situated just over 4 km to the south.

ProMIS Neurosciences, Inc. (ARFXF)

Penny Stock Hub, 4-Traders, Streetwise Reports, Stockhouse, TradingView, Investopedia, Wallmine, Insider Financial, Uptick Newswire, Capital Cube, InvestorsHub, MarketWatch, OTC Markets, and Dividend Investor reported earlier on ProMIS Neurosciences, Inc. (ARFXF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

ProMIS Neurosciences, Inc. centers on discovering and developing precision medicine therapeutics to treat neurodegenerative diseases, in particular Alzheimer's disease (AD), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and Parkinson's disease (PD). ProMIS Neurosciences’ lead product is PMN310 in Alzheimer’s disease. OTCQB-listed,  ProMIS Neurosciences has offices in Toronto, Ontario and Cambridge, Massachusetts.

ProMIS’ proprietary target discovery engine is based on the use of two complementary techniques. ProMIS applies its thermodynamic, computational discovery platform-ProMIS™and Collective Coordinates - to predict novel targets known as Disease Specific Epitopes (DSEs) on the molecular surface of misfolded proteins. Using this innovative precision medicine approach, the Company is developing novel antibody therapeutics and specific companion diagnostics for AD and ALS.

ProMIS Neurosciences uses its proprietary technology platform to create highly selective antibodies. The Company’s lead programs are following a “best in class” strategy targeting Amyloid beta in Alzheimer’s disease, with advantages over ”first in class” therapy from Biogen (aducanumab).

ProMIS’ PMN310 is on course to further confirm differentiation from likely “first in class” Biogen’s aducanumab. In addition, PMN310 is on course to initiate clinical trials this year and potentially superior clinical data in comparison to aducanumab in late 2021 shortly after aducanumab anticipated approval.

For Alzheimer’s disease, ProMIS Neurosciences’ most advanced priority program, three validated product candidates have been designated. These are PMN310, PMN350, and PMN330. The Company announced in January 2018 that its lead product candidate for Alzheimer's disease (AD), PMN310, showed absence of binding to amyloid beta (Aβ) plaque in and around blood vessels in AD brain samples in a preclinical study directly comparing PMN310 to other Aβ-directed antibodies.

At the end of October 2018, ProMIS Neurosciences announced the identification of novel targets on misfolded, pathological forms of tau. The Company said that the development of antibody therapeutics, which selectively block these toxic forms of tau constitutes an exciting approach to treating Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative diseases.

Over the course of 2018, ProMIS Neurosciences made major progress in expanding its portfolio of opportunities across numerous neurodegenerative diseases. Dr. Elliot Goldstein, ProMIS President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Based on interactions with potential pharmaceutical partners, we believe our proprietary discovery platform and the resulting expanded portfolio offer real partnering opportunities.  Antibody therapeutics targeting toxic forms of tau, TDP43 and, especially alpha-synuclein, are high on the list of partnering objectives for many companies in the field. We are actively pursuing partnering discussions for our developing portfolio as we continue to generate data in support of these programs."

IronClad Encryption Corporation is a next-generation cyber defense company headquartered in Houston, Texas. Its strategic and tactical data protection solutions strengthen existing encryption methods. The Company’s technology can provide continuous authentication of encrypted data transmitted, creating much stronger defenses to most hacker attacks. IronClad Encryption lists on the OTC Markets’ OTCQB.

IronClad Encryption-powered solutions use the Company’s patented Dynamic Encryption and Perpetual Authentication technologies to make all known key-based encryption technologies almost impossible to compromise. Dynamic Encryption Technology eliminates vulnerabilities caused by exposure of any single encryption key through continually changing encryption keys and keeping the keys synchronized in a fault-tolerant way.

Dynamic Encryption technology eliminates the single point of failure problem inherent in single-key encryption techniques. IronClad’s key management system continuously produces synchronous keys between the sender and receiver. Each key is assigned to a small amount of data. Therefore, if a hacker were to access one of hundreds of millions of keys, the amount of data he would obtain would be almost useless.

IronClad Encryption has a partnership with Black Pearl Engineering Management, Inc. to co-develop ultra-secure products based on IronClad’s patented ultra-secure cybersecurity algorithms and methodologies. The joint venture (JV) operates under the name "Black ICE". It is initially focusing on network gateway products. BlackICE Barrier is the first product in a family of BlackICE products.

The Copper Mountain mine produces approximately 100 million pounds of copper equivalent production annually. This includes major gold and silver credits. All are shipped to Japan for smelting in one of Mitsubishi Materials’ copper smelters.

The Copper Mountain mine (based on the 2015 AIF disclosure) has an expected mine life of 17 years. Resources include 5 Billion lbs of Cu with precious metal credits. Secondary metals include gold, silver - about 20 percent of Revenue. This mine is a conventional open pit, truck and shovel operation.

The Company has its Fenton project. The Fenton Property is 33 km south of Houston, British Columbia. Fenton is an advanced stage polymetallic exploration project with considerable potential. Copper Mountain Mining has had the property under option since 2012. It has advanced this project through mapping, soil geochemistry, ground and airborne geophysics, as well as percussion and diamond drilling.

At the beginning of October, Copper Mountain Mining announced positive results from its Feasibility Study on its 100 percent owned Eva Copper Project in Queensland, Australia. Copper Mountain Mining's President and Chief Executive Officer, Gil Clausen, said, "The results of the Eva Feasibility Study clearly demonstrate the quality and size of this asset. Eva has the potential to add significant cashflow to our operating base, at one of the lowest capital intensities for near-term greenfield projects anywhere, in the best mining jurisdiction in the world."

Also this month, Copper Mountain Mining announced Q3 2018 production results for its Copper Mountain Mine in southern British Columbia. All results are reported on a 100 percent basis. Production for Q3 2018 was 18.3 million pounds of copper, 7,500 ounces of gold and 64,900 ounces of silver, which was in line with expectations.

Copper Mountain Mining guided that Q3 2018 copper production would be roughly 10 percent lower than Q2 because of lower copper grades being mined. Actual copper production was 8.5 percent lower than Q2. The expectation is that Q4 copper production will be the strongest quarter of 2018. The Company remains on course to attain 2018 annual production guidance of 80 million pounds of copper (+/-5 percent).

Copper equivalent production was 22.0 million pounds. It was down only 4.8 percent versus Q2 because of higher gold production as a result of increased gold grade and recovery after the installation of a flash flotation circuit in the concentrator.

Copper Mountain Mining Corporation (CPPMF), closed Tuesday's trading session at $0.65, up 6.56%, on 18,540 volume with 6 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 25,133 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.48/$1.29.

(ZZZOF), and today we choose to report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Zinc One Resources, Inc. concentrates on the acquisition, exploration and development of prospective and advanced zinc projects in mining-friendly jurisdictions. Its key assets are the past producing Bongará Zinc Mine Project and the Charlotte-Bongará Zinc Project in Peru. The Company formerly went by the name Rockridge Capital Corp. It changed its corporate name to Zinc One Resources, Inc. in January 2017. Zinc One Resources is based in Vancouver, British Columbia. The Company lists on the OTC Markets.

Zinc One Resources acquired Forrester Metals, Inc. in June 2017. Accordingly, it acquired the Bongará Mine and Charlotte-Bongará Projects. Both host high-grade, nonsulphide zinc mineralization at or near the surface. At the Bongará Zinc Mine the mineralization is concentrated along and proximal to a NW – trending anticlinal axis over approximately 2.5 kilometers.

The Bongará Zinc Mine was mined in 2007 and 2008 by a former owner by open-pit methods, dried at the site, and then shipped 540 kilometers westward to the coast where it was processed through a Waelz kiln. This is a processing technology typically applied to flue dust from steel mills to recover zinc. In August of 2008, the mine was closed down mainly due to a drop in the price of zinc at that time.

The exploration upside at Charlotte-Bongará includes greater than 8,000 meters of drilling. This includes results of 29.5% Zn across 15.5 meters, 26.1% Zn across 12.5 meters, as well as 29.7% Zn across 11.5 meters.

Last week, Zinc One Resources announced additional drill results from the remaining holes in the Mina Grande Norte zone, Bongará Zinc Mine project situated in north-central Peru. High-grade intercepts included up to 39.6 meters of 37.0% zinc from MGN18010 and 14.4 meters of 40.5% zinc from MGN18012.

The drill program at Mina Grande Norte encountered manifold high-grade intercepts in the western sector and, along with the results from pit sampling, establish that the mineralization encompasses an area of roughly 175 meters in an east-west direction and 100 meters in a north-south direction. Mina Grande Norte is a part of one of the three zones of high-grade, near-surface zinc-oxide mineralization along a 1.4 kilometer mineralized trend, which was tested by this drill program that comprised 264 holes for 7,931 meters.

Today, Zinc One Resources announced that it appointed Dr. Bill Williams, COO and a Director of Zinc One, as the interim Chief Executive Officer (CEO) effective November 13, 2018. Mr. James Walchuck has been the CEO and a Director of Zinc One and he remains a consultant to the Company.

Pacific Rim Cobalt Corp. (CSE: BOLT) (OTCQB: PCRCF) (XFRA: NXFE)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Pacific Rim Cobalt Corp. (OTCQB: PCRCF).

Pacific Rim Cobalt Corp. (CSE: BOLT) (FRANKFURT: NXFE) (OTCQB: PCRCF) a Company focused on developing nickel / cobalt opportunities in Indonesia is pleased to provide an update detailing the milestones and growth initiatives accomplished throughout 2018 and strategic goals for 2019.

Pacific Rim Cobalt Corp. (CSE: BOLT) (OTCQB: PCRCF) (XFRA: NXFE) is a Canada-based exploration company focused on the acquisition and development of production-grade cobalt deposits, a key raw material input for the growing lithium-ion battery industry.

Pacific Rim Cobalt and its Cyclops Nickel-Cobalt Project, located in the Depapre District, Jayapura Regency, Papua Province, Republic of Indonesia, is uniquely positioned in a region with potentially the largest source of cobalt outside of Africa. Strategically located near China, the world’s largest cobalt buyer, the Cyclops Project is a laterite (iron-hosted) mineral prospect, rich in cobalt and nickel. Cobalt consumption in China is on-track to use over 8,000 tonnes of cobalt annually by 2021 for electric vehicle production alone and is projected to remain the world’s largest cobalt consumer for many years to come.

Global demand for renewable power is fueling a massive shift from traditional energy supply chain economics to cobalt-reliant lithium-ion batteries, the world’s most widely used power source for portable applications such as electric vehicles and other high-tech applications.

Pacific Rim Cobalt management has concluded that strategic access to major markets offers the most important factor to servicing the rising demand for cobalt. The company’s acquisition of its initial asset in Indonesia offers near surface, strong nickel-cobalt mineralization in an area with excellent infrastructure including a nearby workforce, supplies, sealed roads, ocean access, nearby port facility and gentle topography. The project area, nestled on the north coast of Papua, Indonesia, establishes Pacific Rim Cobalt well within the economically attractive ocean-going transportation range to Asia and its lucrative, growing industrial markets.

Exploration efforts are currently focused on establishing a maiden compliant resource for the Cyclops project, both in historically identified and drill-tested prospects as well as previously unexplored areas of the claims. During the first nine months of 2018, the company focused on assembling the necessary agreements to access northern areas of the project hosting historically identified mineralized zones. Mapping, sampling and a mini-bulk sample within the mineralized zones has been completed, along with a small-scale program in the previously unexplored far southern area of the project. With surface access to priority targets now established, Pacific Rim Cobalt will initiate drilling and extract additional mini-bulk samples for further metallurgical testing.

“We are excited and optimistic about the unique possibility of developing this project into an asset that will add shareholder value and position the company to play a future role in the battery metals supply chain,” Pacific Rim Cobalt CEO Ranjeet Sundher recently stated (http://nnw.fm/u1HNs). “We expect the near-surface nature of cobalt/nickel mineralization at the Cyclops project will lend itself well to low-cost, logistically straightforward drilling. We thus anticipate the opportunity to undertake a resource calculation study, as well as ongoing metallurgy and process option testing, will present itself in the near future. It’s going to be a busy year ahead, and we look forward to getting the drills turning and building value.”

Pacific Rim Cobalt’s world-class management team includes Sundher, who has over 20 years of capital markets experience. Sundher is also president of Canrim Ventures Ltd., a Singaporean advisory firm specializing in early stage project finance and structure. He previously founded Indogold Exploration, a Jakarta-based mining service firm, and has raised over $40 million for companies in which he was a founder/partner.

Chief Financial Officer Steve Vanry has 25 years of professional experience in senior management positions with public and private natural resources companies, providing expertise in capital markets corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions, regulatory compliance, accounting and financial reporting.

Andre Talaska serves as country manager and technical supervisor. He has over 30 years of experience in the mining and exploration industry and has held senior positions with several companies in Australia and southeast Asia. Shakir Juffry, business development/engineering, is a chemical engineer and extractive metallurgist by background training who has over 20 years of experience in the Indonesian mining and minerals exploration field. Toto Suarto Sajali, operation and development manager, is a mining engineer with over 15 years of experience in Indonesian project assessment, development and operations.

Pacific Rim Cobalt Corp. (OTCQB: PCRCF), closed the day's trading session at $3.79, up 2.82%, on 10,000 volume with 3 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 14,022 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0701/$1.166.

The Flowr Corporation (TSX.V: FLWR)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight The Flowr Corporation (FLWR).

The Flowr Corporation’s (TSX.V: FLWR) (OTC: FLWPF) acquisition of 19.8 percent of Holigen Limited for a cash payment of C$6 million and the signing of an intellectual property sharing agreement is expected to have far-reaching benefits for the company. Flowr says that it will result in an acceleration of Holigen’s projects, including an outdoor cultivation license on a seven million square foot site in Portugal with the potential to produce 500,000 kg of cannabis products annually (http://nnw.fm/iv7Wk).

The Flowr Corporation (TSX.V: FLWR), a Health Canada Licensed Producer (LP) of cannabis under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR), is an emerging Canadian cannabis leader founded by Medreleaf co-founder Tom Flow and a team of industry pioneers, successful start-up executives and top industry scientists. Flowr’s purpose-built cultivation facilities may be the most advanced in the industry, consistently generating high crop yields, delivering premium and ultra-premium cannabis products, and maximizing return on investment. The company also may be an R&D leader as it was selected by the Hawthorne Gardening Division of The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company as its exclusive Canadian cannabis R&D partner.

Flowr’s flagship facility, an 84,000-square-foot campus on seven acres in Kelowna, British Columbia, is engineered to grow premium cannabis in rooms that meet pharmaceutical industry production standards for cleanliness. This, along with exacting protocols designed by the Flowr team, enables Flowr to grow cannabis that meets Health Canada’s stringent standards without treating it with the taste- and smell-killing gamma irradiation that most other producers have to use to clean their product. Irradiating the plant – a process similar to pasteurizing food – impairs many of the important terpenes that provide the positive effects, flavors and scents of cannabis while strengthening unpleasant terpenes. Flowr’s products may deliver a better user experience, thus commanding premium prices.

Flowr’s cultivation facilities, built with proprietary, patent-pending systems, are designed to deliver yields targeted at 450 grams per square foot by the end of 2022, which is three times more efficient than the industry average of approximately 150 grams per square foot. By optimizing yield, the Company may produce significantly more cannabis flower on a smaller footprint than other producers, thus generating far high revenue per square foot and keeping costs much lower, leading to higher margins. The Kelowna facility is presently 20 percent operational with the remaining 80 percent slated to come online by early 2019. It is expected to produce up to 14,000 kg of premium, non-irradiated cannabis flower in 2019. With further enhanced yields and planned expansion of production facilities on the campus, Flowr will reach a total capacity of 60,000 kg annually in 2022.

Leading Flowr’s cultivation program is industry pioneer, company co-founder and Flowr president Tom Flow. Flow is widely recognized for his cannabis thought leadership and expertise building and operating cannabis cultivation facilities. Flow also co-founded MedReleaf and designed, built and set up SOPs for their flagship Marcum cultivation facility. Marcum has continued to be perhaps the most productive facility in the country prior to the Flowr flagship facility. Long one of Canada’s most efficient and profitable LPs, MedReleaf was acquired by Aurora for approximately C$3 billion. Flow and his team have designed and built a total of 17 cultivation facilities and secured three producer’s licenses under various Canadian regulatory regimes.

In March 2018, Flowr and the Hawthorne Gardening Division of The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company – a world leader in lawn and garden products – announced an exclusive strategic R&D alliance. After evaluating numerous Canadian LPs, Hawthorne chose to partner with Flowr based on the experience and expertise of the company’s cultivation and R&D teams and the company’s advanced growing capabilities.

Hawthorne will fund the construction of a 50,000-square-foot R&D facility that is integrated into Flowr’s Kelowna campus. This facility is North America’s first dedicated cannabis R&D facility focused on advancing cultivation techniques and systems. The facility will support researchers from both organizations and combine laboratories, indoor and greenhouse grow suites, training areas and genetics breeding areas in a single building. It is expected to open in early 2019. In addition to helping Flowr maintain its competitive advantage in cultivation, the company’s R&D program will keep it on the cutting edge of cannabis innovation.

Flowr is entering the market with three different brands to meet the growing demand for premium, non-irradiated cannabis in the medicinal and adult use markets:

  • FlowrRx, featuring premium quality medicinal cannabis that enables patients to live better, fuller lives. A dedicated Client Services team will provide patients with personalized support while an R&D team develops innovative flower strains and premium products targeted to specific conditions. Patient well-being is considered at every stage of the process – from genetic selection to harvest, trimming and curing techniques. FlowrRx and its team of passionate scientists and leading cultivation specialists are dedicated to advancing the scientific understanding of cannabis.
  • Flowr is the company’s premium recreational adult-use brand featuring an active, West Coast-inspired lifestyle for the cannabis connoisseur and enthusiast market. Through the continuous innovation of procedures and practices, Flowr’s talented team of experts is crafting premium products that deliver unparalleled experiences.
  • Ace Valley, an exclusive partnership with top-selling Ontario craft beer company Ace Hill, will bring Flowr’s premium product to the millennial and casual adult-use markets under the Ace Valley brand.

Flowr recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the British Columbia Liquor Distribution Branch, the province’s sole legal wholesaler of non-medical cannabis, to supply premium and ultra-premium flower to the province’s retail outlets. The company has agreements with several major medical distributors and is in discussions about retail distribution with additional provinces where it believes it can obtain prices commensurate with the quality of the Flowr products. The company is also evaluating other market opportunities including export.

Flowr is poised to become the pre-eminent indoor premium cannabis grower in Canada and one of the country’s top five LPs. The company’s focus on yield, quality and price point and its team’s ability to grow at scale should drive high margins, significant growth and strong return on investment.

The Flowr Corporation (TSX.V: FLWR), closed the day's trading session at $4.35, up 0.69%, on 109,558 volume with 146 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 89,848 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $2.74/$8.00.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LXRP).

Biotechnology company Lexaria Bioscience’s (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP) revolutionary technology, DehydraTECH, alters the way that fat soluble, plant-derived molecules are absorbed into the body. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/JH6p0.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP) has developed and out-licenses its proprietary technology for improved taste, rapidity, and delivery of bioactive compounds, including cannabinoids. Though boasting a wide range of health benefits, cannabinoids are traditionally poorly absorbed by the body’s gastrointestinal tract. To achieve higher effectiveness, consumers usually default to smoking. Lexaria provides a superior administration method by delivering hemp oil ingredients – or through locally licensed partners, cannabis oil ingredients – through a patented process within food products.

The key differentiator between Lexaria’s products and others on the market is the company’s disruptive technology proven to enhance the absorption of orally ingested cannabinoids while improving the “unusual” taste of cannabinoids and allowing for lower overall dosing with higher efficacy. Lexaria is primarily a B2B enterprise, and is in licensing discussions or has existing agreements with companies in Canada, the largest-market states in the USA, and internationally. Lexaria has also developed its own brands partly for demonstration purposes, utilizing its patented technology to infuse hemp oil ingredients within lipids in popular foods. These brands include ViPova™, Lexaria Energy Foods, and TurboCBD™.

In 2015, Lexaria commissioned an independent, third-party lab to test its technology under carefully monitored in vitro conditions. Results showed that the company’s technological process and lipid formulation both improve intestinal absorption as much as 500%. Additional follow-up studies in human volunteers suggested that Lexaria’s processed, lipid-infused tea may be more effective in an actual gastrointestinal system than in an in vitro simulation with results indicating as much as a 1,000% increase in overall absorption.

Lexaria also has an R&D partnership with the Canadian government’s National Research Council. That R&D is expected to characterize molecular bond formation theorized to occur with Lexaria’s unique technology between the lipid delivery agents and the bioactive substances it processes and combines. Results from this R&D are expected to support accelerating B2B relationships – not just in the cannabis industry, but also to support new B2B business relationships in the fields of vitamins, NSAIDs, and nicotine delivery. All of these sectors expected to offer additional future growth potential.

Aside from testing, a critical component of Lexaria Bioscience’s business model is a strong intellectual property portfolio that utilizes the most commonly used food processing techniques. As of 2017, the company’s patent portfolio includes 19 patent applications filed and pending in more than 40 countries around the world. The most recent patent applications expand Lexaria’s lipophilic food and beverage composition claims to include the processing of cannabinoids, vitamins, NSAIDs and nicotine in many of the world’s most commonly used food processing ingredients. Lexaria is expecting additional new patent awards both in the USA and internationally in 2017 and 2018.

Royalties play a vital role in Lexaria’s revenue-generating business model. The company out-licenses its technology (royalty) to third party partners, and has several deals signed and/or pending. The company’s growth initiatives are guided by a management team headed by CEO Chris Bunka, a serial entrepreneur who has raised more than $50 million in working capital for the companies he has led over the course of his career. He is supported by a team of professionals with extensive experience in pharmaceutical and bioscience sectors, invention, toxicology, consumer goods, and other relevant skillsets.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LXRP), closed the day's trading session at $1.01, up 4.12%, on 102,200 volume with 67 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 177,888 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.75/$2.43.

Lithium Chile Inc. (TSX.V: LITH) (OTC: LTMCF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Lithium Chile Inc. (LTMCF).

Lithium Chile Inc. (TSX.V: LITH) (OTC: LTMCF) is pleased to announce that it has appointed South American lithium expert, Jose de Castro Alem, to the Board of Directors and as Manager of Lithium Operations. Mr. de Castro is a recognized pioneer in lithium brine exploration, development and production in South America. He brings over 20 years of lithium brine experience, as well as a significant track record in the lithium triangle, to the Company's management team. Jose de Castro Alem's appointment is subject to regulatory approval.

Lithium Chile Inc. (TSX.V: LITH) (OTC: LTMCF), headquartered in Canada, is advancing one of the largest lithium-rich exploration portfolios in Chile consisting of more than 148,000 hectares covering sections of 13 salars or mineral salt flats and one laguna complex. The company’s wholly owned premier properties include 66 square kilometers on the Salar de Atacama, Chile’s largest mineral salt flat which hosts the world’s highest concentration of lithium brine production and is currently the source of about 35 percent of the world’s lithium production. Lithium Chile also owns a significant copper/gold/silver property portfolio consisting of 28,184 hectares over six different properties.

Lithium Chile’s portfolio in the heart of Chile’s lithium-rich salars includes Salar de Coipasa, Salar de Helados, Salar de Atacama, Salar de Turi Salar de Ollague and Salar de Talar. Surface and near surface salt and brine sampling programs on all properties has been completed. To date, samples of high-grade, near-surface lithium brines at each of these projects are showing excellent chemistry of lithium to potassium and lithium to magnesium ratios. Good chemistry is important as it reduces your overall cost of production. Recent geophysical surveys including T.E.M have been completed on 5 of 6 priority targets and data collected to date has been extremely encouraging.

Lithium Chile has identified multiple high-priority brine target areas at its Atacama and Ollague lithium project areas.

CytoDyn Inc. (CYDY)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight CytoDyn Inc. (CYDY).

CytoDyn Inc. (OTC.QB: CYDY), a biotechnology company developing a novel humanized CCR5 monoclonal antibody for multiple therapeutic indications, today announced that it will be presenting an update on the company’s clinical development programs and objectives for leronlimab (PRO 140) during the Biotech Showcase on January 9, 2019 at 10:30 a.m. PT. More information regarding the conference can be found at https://ebdgroup.knect365.com/biotech-showcase/

CytoDyn Inc. (CYDY) is a biotechnology company focused on the clinical development and potential commercialization of a new class of HIV/AIDS therapeutics or viral-entry inhibitors intended to protect healthy cells from viral infection. The company’s pipeline includes its lead product, PRO 140 for multiple indications among which are human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), graft-versus-host disease (GvHD), colon cancer, and multiple sclerosis (MS), each in various stages of development. CytoDyn first approval is focused on HIV indications for two different HIV populations.

PRO 140 is a humanized monoclonal antibody directed at CCR5, a molecular portal that HIV uses to enter T-cells. PRO 140 works by blocking the predominant HIV (R5) subtype entry into T-cells by masking this required co-receptor, CCR5.

CytoDyn has completed one pivotal phase 3 clinical trials of PRO 140 use in combination with current drugs for population that has limited treatment options. PRO 140 is also currently in another phase 3 (investigative trial) for a second approval for another HIV population. HIV continues to be a major global public health issue. There is no cure for the disease that has claimed more than 35 million lives to date, according to the World Health Organization (“WHO”). In 2017, 940,000 people around the world died from HIV-related causes. There were approximately 36.9 million people living with HIV at the end of 2017 with 1.8 million people becoming newly infected during that same year. The WHO estimates there were 21.7 million people globally receiving antiretroviral therapy (“ART”) in 2017.

HIV targets the immune system and weakens the body’s defense systems against infections and some types of cancer. As the virus destroys and impairs the function of immune cells, infected individuals gradually become immunodeficient which results in increased susceptibility to a wide range of infections, cancers and other diseases that people with healthy immune systems can fight off. The most advanced stage of HIV infection is Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS), which can take from 2 to 15 years to develop depending on the individual.

PRO 140 functions by blocking the HIV co-receptor CCR5, a molecular portal HIV uses to enter T-cells, thus preventing the HIV virus from entering the cell. CCR5 is a protein located on the surface of white blood cells that normally serves as a receptor for chemicals that attract immune cells to the site of inflammation. Clinical trials to date indicate PRO 140 does not interfere with these normal CCR5 functions. Results from phase 1 and phase 2 human clinical trials have shown PRO 140 significantly reduces viral burden in people infected with HIV. Importantly, in a recent phase 2b clinical trial, PRO 140 demonstrated it can allow a subset of R5 strain of HIV population to replace their current HIV regimen (Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy or “HAART.”) by a simple sub-cutaneous self-injectable dose of PRO 140 which is administered once a week. Some of those patients have received PRO 140 as their only therapy for almost four years.

The PRO 140 antibody appears to be a powerful antiviral agent with hardly any side effects, toxicity. More than 500 patients have used PRO 140 in clinical trial and no resistance has ever been developed in any patients including patients in monotherapy of PRO 140 for almost four years.

PRO 140, which is taken as an easy-to-use, weekly, subcutaneous self-administered dose, has almost no side effects or toxicity with no report of any serious adverse event related to PRO 140 in more than 500 patients in eight different clinical trial.

As we indicated earlier patients given PRO 140 showed no drug resistance on monotherapy for some almost four years while 76% of HAART patients developed a resistance to some portion of the lifetime drug regimen. Patient compliance with HAART is also the main reason why only 35% of HIV patients in US reporting complete viral load (VL) suppression which is VL<50 cp/mL.

In addition to its research into the powerful potential of PRO 140 for use in HIV patients, CytoDyn is pursuing PRO 140 as a therapeutic anti-viral agent in other non-HIV indications that could benefit from PRO 140’s ability to block CCR5. These immunologic indications include new reactions to cancer, transplantation rejection, autoimmune diseases and chronic inflammation such as Multiple Sclerosis. The company sees the significant potential for multiple pipeline opportunities for PRO 140.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has designated PRO 140 as a “fast track” product for HIV and granted Orphan Drug Designation to it for the prevention of GvHD in transplant patients. CytoDyn has initiated its first clinical trial with PRO 140 in an immunological indication for GvHD in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) or myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) who are undergoing bone marrow stem cell transplantation. The company is also investigating PRO 140 in animal models of cancer progression and autoimmunity with positive results and has published its animal study results in GvHD in peer-reviewed journal.

CytoDyn president and CEO Nader Z. Pourhassan, Ph.D. joined the company in 2008 and is credited for purchasing PRO 140 from Progenics in 2012 and has taken a new path to approval for the product. He is the co-inventor of monotherapy path for PRO 140. He has taken PRO 140 development from phase 2 to Completed successful phase 3 in about four years. He now has more than 10 years of drug development experience and has overseen the rapid clinical development of PRO 140 as a therapy for HIV into two phase 3 for two different indications. He also initiated PRO 140 first immunological indication in GvHD (currently in phase 2). He is also involved in preclinical and clinical development of PRO 140 in additional immunological indications.?Dr. Pourhassan, who has more than 20 years of business development experience, has led CytoDyn’s capital market activities since joining the company in 2008. He received his Bachelor of Science from Utah State University, Master of Science from Brigham Young University, and his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Utah and is the author of three books.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight The Green Organic Dutchman (OTC: TGODF).

The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX:TGOD) (US:TGODF) is pleased to announce it has appointed Dr. Caroline MacCallum and Jacques Dessureault to its Board of Directors. Dr. Caroline MacCallum is one of the world's most prominent experts in cannabinoid-based medicine.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF), whose principal location is in Hamilton, Ontario, produces farm grown, organic, pesticide-free medical cannabis in small batches using all natural, organic craft growing principles. TGOD is licensed under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) to cultivate medical cannabis. The company carries out its principal activities producing cannabis pursuant to the provisions of the ACMPR and the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (Canada).

Committed to becoming the global leader in delivering organic cannabis solutions that enhance people’s lives, TGOD consistently adheres to the highest levels of excellence. Its world-class management team includes a proven group of leaders with outstanding executive and operational experience specific to consumer packaged goods, consumer products, cannabis and finance industries.

TGOD is positioned as one of the highest quality and most cost efficient cannabis producers in Canada by leveraging innovative technology and low-cost power solutions. It holds one of the largest land packages under a single ACMPR license in Canada, providing future cannabis Agri-park style development and opportunities for joint ventures, licensing and distribution partners. Its industry leading alliance partners include Eaton, Ledcor Group and Hamilton Utilities Corp.

Eaton is the second largest power management company in the world and promises to supply innovative and cost effective power solutions to meet TGOD’s growing demands. Construction management is supplied by Ledcor, Canada’s second largest multidisciplinary construction company and a pioneer in the Green Building Industry. An alliance with Hamilton Utilities Corp allows TGOD to reduce its power costs from $0.13 per kWh to less than $0.05 per kWh. Greenhouse design is provided by Larssen Greenhouse, whose 25-plus years of experience in building some of the most modern and sophisticated greenhouses in the industry will provide TGOD with state of the art, climate-controlled hybrid greenhouse solutions.

Canada is quickly becoming a hub for cannabis investors with over $1.3 billion raised by Canadian companies to date. There are 58 licensed producers to service a population of 36 million and only two organic producers. TGOD, which holds licenses in Ontario and Quebec, is strategically located in both provinces that together claim 22 million Canadians as residents. Another estimated 57 million people live next door in six U.S. bordering states.

The Canadian cannabis market currently has a massive supply demand gap, which makes TGOD’s expansion plans even more important to investors. These plans include a combined build-out capacity of 970,000 square feet, allowing TGOD to produce 116,000 kg annually of organic cannabis. Upon completion, Phase One in Hamilton, Ontario, which is fully funded, will provide 150,000 square feet of growing capacity capable of producing up to 14,000 kg of cannabis or $112 million in revenue at $8 a gram.

The company’s Quebec expansion will be constructed on a recently secured 75-acre property near Montreal. This new property has a planned expansion of 820,000 square feet capable of producing 102,000 kg of organic cannabis. The first phase of this expansion is underway and construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2018. Quebec’s first phase will consist of 220,000 square feet capable of producing 22,000 kg of cannabis. Two additional expansion phases will add 250,000 square feet (26,000 kg of cannabis) and 350,000 square feet (54,000 kg of cannabis). Power costs remain exceptionally low for both facilities with access to all other needed utilities available and close by.

TGOD also plans to gain a share of the burgeoning cannabis oils market which by Q1 2017 accounted for 49 percent of all cannabis sold in Canada under the ACMPR, up from only 27% in Q2 2016. TGOD has ordered a purpose-built extraction laboratory with an estimated commission in Q4 of 2017. This is a commercial-scale CO2 extraction unit capable of processing up to 12,000 kg of raw material per year and producing approximately $170 million worth of organic cannabis oils. Raw cannabis oil provides a significant downstream manufacturing opportunity into several potential recreational market verticals including edibles, beverages, topicals and concentrates.

Data from the Canadian ACMPR Market Trends report indicates a rising number of consumers will continue to seek out healthier, less conspicuous ways to consume cannabis, ensuring sales of organic cannabis oil products remain brisk. Organic cannabis products demand a significant premium compared to non-organic products and the demand keeps growing.

Plans to take the company public are underway with an initial public offering (IPO) slated for January 2018. In November, the company raised $13 million in equity financing and in March closed a $27 million non-brokered private placement. Another $20 million is currently being raised before the IPO in January, which will be utilized for expansion plans.

TGOD is uniquely positioned between the medical and recreational cannabis industry since Canada is scheduled to legalize cannabis for all adults in mid-2018. As of August 2017, TGOD has 2,400 shareholders. Established in 2012, TGOD’s motto, “Making Life Better,” can be seen in its strategic partnerships, top quality management team, and dedication to organic farming and principles.

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTC: FTSSF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight First Cobalt Corp. (FTSSF).

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX-V: FCC; ASX: FCC; OTCQX: FTSSF) (the "Company") is pleased to announce it has engaged Brown and Caldwell at the Iron Creek Project to provide guidance on permitting and to develop an environmental baseline study strategy.

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTC: FTSSF), with headquarters in Canada, is the largest land owner in the Cobalt Camp in Ontario with control of over 10,000 hectares (nearly 25,000 acres) of prospective land and 50 historic cobalt/silver mines. The company’s assets include a mill and the only permitted cobalt extraction refinery in North America capable of producing battery material, providing an integrated solution for cobalt projects. First Cobalt began drilling in the historic Cobalt Camp in 2017 and seeks to build shareholder value through new discovery and growth opportunities.

First Cobalt’s 2018 $C7 million drilling program, which includes testing different styles of mineralized areas throughout the Cobalt Camp in more than 10 past-producing mines known to contain cobalt, is a significant expansion over its 2017 exploration activities. The company received positive test drill results from the Bellellen mine location, with early results confirming the presence of high-grade cobalt and nickel, prompting First Cobalt to increase its drilling program at that site. A prospecting sampling program of existing muckpiles around the camp’s historic mines, trenches, pits and surrounding bedrock could provide an early production scenario.

First Cobalt Corp. is moving quickly to leverage its potential against an economic background that estimates global consumption for refined cobalt is set to grow at an average rate of approximately 5 percent per annum for the next 10 years. The electric vehicle market, in particular, is driving this sector since more than 50 percent of the world’s current production of cobalt is used in the manufacture of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. The global lithium-ion battery market, as estimated by Zion Market Research, indicates the value at around USD $31 billion in 2016 and is expected to generate revenue of nearly USD $68 billion by end of 2022, growing at a compound annual growth rate of slightly above 17 percent.

First Cobalt is embracing innovation in the mining sector, utilizing a digital compilation of 100-plus years of mining and geological data spanning the historically prolific Cobalt Mining Camp’s lifespan. First Cobalt’s management team is also assessing the ability of artificial intelligence to accelerate the discovery cycle. As a member of the Mineral Exploration Research Centre (MERC) and Metal Earth Project, First Cobalt conducts regional geophysical surveys for geological interpretation of structures controlling cobalt-silver mineralization.

The company’s clear pathway to production and cash flow generation includes being one of only four fully permitted cobalt extraction refineries in Canada with significant material and processing infrastructure on site. With the price of cobalt increasing significantly and its importance in the growing battery market underpinning a strong long-term demand forecast, First Cobalt Corp. and its mining interests are primed for success.

First Cobalt Corp. President and CEO Trent Mell, a mining executive and capital markets professional with extensive international transactional experience, is joined by a team of reputable and seasoned deal-makers, mine builders and mine operators with decades of global experience in exploration, business development, geoscience, engineering and finance.

First Cobalt Corp. (FTSSF), closed the day's trading session at $0.1338, even for the day, on 53,652 volume with 25 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 191,505 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.1143/$1.21.

SinglePoint, Inc. (SING)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight SinglePoint, Inc. (SING).

Technology and investment company SinglePoint (OTCQB: SING) this morning announced its investment in TorusMed Inc. to develop cannabidiol (“CBD”) cell cultures from industrial hemp. To view the full press release, visit: http://cnw.fm/hRc4w.

SinglePoint, Inc. (SING) is a diversified holding company with operations in multiple industries and verticals including two high-performing market sectors: legal cannabis and cryptocurrencies. SinglePoint has grown from a full-service mobile technology provider to a recognizable brand with a diverse portfolio of undervalued subsidiaries with multiple revenue streams.

SinglePoint is researching opportunities where it can be an active participant by influencing the strategy and direction of high-potential companies whose verified assets offer attractive possibilities for shareholders. The company is guided by a visionary leadership team with extensive experience in technology, engineering, marketing and raising capital.

SinglePoint is bullish on the cannabis industry, bitcoin and blockchain technologies, which is evident in its recent acquisitions and joint-venture announcements. Recent SinglePoint key highlights include:

  • A joint venture with Smart Cannabis Corporation (OTC: SCNA) to license and market Smart Cannabis’ SMART APP. SMART APP enables cannabis growers to measure all aspects of cultivation, from soil nutrient levels to watering cycles and carbon dioxide content in the air. SMART APP will integrate SinglePoint’s bitcoin payment solution to enable growers to process safer and more secure transactions.
  • A joint venture with Global Payout (OTC: GOHE) will build on existing financial technology solutions developed by SinglePoint and Global Payout’s subsidiary MoneyTrac Technology, Inc., to fully optimize the delivery of mobile payment applications for domestic and international organizations.
  • A joint venture with AppSwarm (OTC: SWRM) to start development on a proprietary delivery application that will enable licensed cannabis delivery services and licensed dispensaries to safely make in-home cannabis deliveries.
  • Signed original “Shark Tank” member Kevin Harrington as company spokesman for an innovative, compatible virtual wallet to store any type of cryptocurrency. Harrington recently finished shooting a new national ad campaign featuring SinglePoint and the virtual wallet’s secure method of storing cryptocurrencies.
  • Entered into a letter of intent to acquire 100 percent of Bitcoin Beyond, a premier platform that enables merchants to accept bitcoin payments using existing web-enabled point-of-sale devices.
  • Through SING subsidiary, SingleSeed, the company will soon offer a proprietary cryptocurrency solution that links both cannabis merchants and consumers who seek to take advantage of bitcoin-powered transactions using debit and credit cards. In addition to making bitcoin-backed card purchases possible, the solution enables cannabis dispensaries to digitally track and manage their product inventories, performing tasks like uploading product data, photos and descriptions. The system deducts items automatically from a dispensary’s product listings when a purchase is made. While this fully KYC-AML compliant point-of-sale platform can be utilized for any other retail setting, it will fill a critical need in the underbanked cannabis industry as it continues to seek non-cash payment solutions outside of traditional banking circles.

SinglePoint CEO and founder Greg Lambrecht leads the company in its mission to capture opportunities through an aggressive expansion strategy across a broad range of assets. Lambrecht oversees all company operations including investor relations, leadership of the board of directors, and daily business activities. As the founder of PCI, a leading consumer product distribution company, Lambrecht negotiated agreements with the nation’s largest retail outlets and led PCI through a NASDAQ listed IPO, raising $10 million.

Eric Lofdahl, SinglePoint’s chief technology officer, has more than 20 years of experience in the technology sector including positions in software development, program management, complex system integration and engineering process definition. Prior to SinglePoint, Lofdahl worked at the Boeing Company where he led a team that successfully developed advanced wireless and satellite data products based on commercial technology for the U.S. Air Force.

SinglePoint President Wil Ralston is well known for his successful track record of building and maintaining great relationships with clients. Ralston graduated cum laude from the WP Carey School of Business at Arizona State University with a degree in Global Agribusiness and a specialization in Professional Golf Management. He is currently recognized by the Professional Golfers Association of America (PGA) as a Class A Professional.

SinglePoint, Inc. (SING), closed the day's trading session at $0.0235, off by 0.68%, on 7,844,174 volume with 299 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 6,003,293 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0106/$0.09956.
