The Miocene Subsalt Play – La Shelf has large resource potential; is low to moderate risk; has moderate drilling and development costs; has shortened times to initial production, and enhanced economics.
Regarding its Phase 1 Drilling Program, GulfSlope Energy has high-graded five prospects with mean unrisked resource potential of 623 MMboe. It is looking to capitalize on strategic advantages provided by exploration work to identify undervalued producing assets. GulfSlope has over 2 billion boe of net conventional recoverable resources. It has 23 lease blocks with 19 drilling prospects ranging from 30-280 MMboe. The average size of the prospects is 120 MMboe.
GulfSlope Energy and Texas South Energy, Inc. (TXSO) previously entered into a strategic partnership with Delek Group Ltd., a global independent oil and gas company based in Israel. The Companies and Delek have mutually agreed to pursue oil and natural gas opportunities in the Gulf of Mexico.
Yesterday, GulfSlope Energy announced that its “Tau Prospect” well drilled through roughly 7,000 feet of salt where high pressures and hydrocarbons near the base of salt were encountered and major mud losses occurred.

Bravada Gold Corp. (BGAVF)
Gold Investment Letter and Real Pennies reported earlier on Bravada Gold Corp. (BGAVF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Bravada Gold Corp. is a Nevada-focused exploration and development company. It has a large portfolio of high-quality properties. These properties encompass a range of development stages. This is from early-stage exploration to advanced-stage exploration and pre-development. Bravada Gold is based in Vancouver, British Columbia. The Company’s shares trade on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB.
Bravada Gold retains residual working or royalty interests. The Company explores for precious metals in well-established gold trends in one of the globe’s best gold jurisdictions. At present, five of its Nevada properties are being funded by partners. In total this includes earn-in work expenditures of up to $6.5 million and payments to Bravada Gold of up to +$3.0 million in cash and shares. Bravada holds a royalty on eventual barite production on its Shoshone Pediment Project.
Regarding its Wind Mountain project, the Company’s plan is to drill-test for high-grade “Hishikari-type” gold/silver vein mineralization beneath the existing disseminated resource at Wind Mountain. Concerning the SF property, Bravada plans to drill-test for high-grade “Carlin-type” gold mineralization at this property.
Pertaining to the North Lone Mountain and South Lone Mountain projects, plans have not been finalized for Bravada Gold’s two claim groups. However, Nevada Zinc continues to expand the footprint of zinc mineralization on its claims towards Bravada’s South Lone Mountain claims. Should Nevada Zinc complete the purchase of these claims, Bravada will retain a royalty on base and precious metals.
This past December, Bravada Gold announced that drilling is underway at its 100 percent owned low-sulfidation Wind Mountain project. Two reverse-circulation holes are planned, one roughly 450m deep and the other roughly 750m deep. The design of the holes is to be proof-of-concept holes. More holes may be added depending on drilling costs and results. The Wind Mountain Project is the Company’s past-producing gold/silver property in north-western Nevada.
Last month, Bravada Gold reported that two proof-of-concept holes were completed in December and early January at the Wind Mountain Project. The reverse-circulation holes were drilled about 1,500m apart.
Alteration and geochemistry indicate that the southerly hole intersected mineralization with characteristics of being up-dip from a feeder zone. In addition, the northerly hole intersected characteristics of being down-dip from a feeder zone. This indicates that the feeder lies between these holes. Each hole intersected a low-angle fault, which separates the Tertiary volcanic and sedimentary host rocks from Mesozoic metamorphosed basement rocks.
Recently, Bravada Gold announced that it received notice that Coeur Explorations, Inc. elected to relinquish its option to purchase Bravada's interest in the Quito property positioned along the Austin Gold trend in central Nevada. Since July of 2015 Coeur Explorations has been funding Bravada Gold, as Operator, in the conduct of exploration at Quito, with recent focus upon completion of permitting to allow drilling this year at the Quito Extension target.
This target was developed during the 2016 exploration program. Around US$600,000 has been received by Bravada Gold by way of this funding, which has been credited to its earn-in obligations to earn its interest in Quito.
Mr. Joe Kizis, Bravada Gold President, said, "Exploration work funded by Coeur has greatly advanced Quito to a 'drill-ready' stage. Bravada will continue to permit four drill sites and plans to drill 4 to 6 holes for 1,600m beginning in the third quarter of 2018 with the intent to test the down-plunge extension of the high-grade mineralization that occurs along the intersection of two primary faults and several secondary faults; this target has not been tested to depth."

Ocean Thermal Energy Corporation (CPWR)
Tidal Energy Today, Stockhouse, OTC Markets, InvestorsHub, MarketWatch, YCharts, 4-Traders, Insider Monkey, Barchart, Investopedia, Marketbeat, and Simply Wall St reported on Ocean Thermal Energy Corporation (CPWR), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Ocean Thermal Energy Corporation builds and operates clean hydrothermal energy plants around the word. The Company is a project developer for Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) plants that create renewable energy. It designs and develops deep-water hydrothermal clean-energy systems that produce fossil-fuel free electricity via OTEC and environmentally friendly cooling via Seawater Air Conditioning (SWAC). Ocean Thermal Energy is based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
Seawater Air Conditioning (SWAC) technology generates air conditioning without the use of chemical agents. Acting alone, SWAC can decrease electricity usage by up to 90 percent versus traditional air conditioning systems. When developed in association with OTEC plants, SWAC operates totally without the use of fossil fuels.
OTEC takes advantage of the temperature difference in the ocean between cold deep water and warm surface water in the tropics and subtropics to produce unlimited energy without the use of fossil fuels. In a closed cycle OTEC system, water flows through a large pipe and heat exchanger, which heats a liquid with a low boiling point, such as ammonia.
As the boiling ammonia produces steam, it turns a turbine generator to produce electricity. A second pipe extracts cool deep water from the ocean that condenses the steam back to liquid form. As the ammonia is recycled, the process repeats, creating unlimited clean energy, 24 hours a day, 365 days a yea (The Rankine Cycle). OTEC uses the solar energy from the ocean. No fossil fuels are used.
Ocean Thermal Energy has made major progress on the development of its first OTEC EcoVillage. It has advanced toward the development of a SWAC system for the U.S. Military. Regarding the OTEC EcoVillage, the U.S. Virgin Islands’ Public Service Commission granted Ocean Thermal Energy regulatory approval for an OTEC plant.
The OTEC EcoVillage project consists of, in part, of an OTEC plant that will provide all power and water to roughly 400 residences. It also consists of a hotel, and shopping center, and models of sustainable agriculture, food production, and other economic developments. OTEC EcoVillage will be the first development in the world offering a net-zero carbon footprint.
Recently, Ocean Thermal Energy announced that it signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) to acquire an established, profitable, and experienced company in the heavy-commercial air conditioning business. The Company noted that this would be a financially attractive acquisition supporting new geographic markets and existing multimillion-dollar revenue streams.
The acquired company would bring considerable heavy-commercial air conditioning expertise and strong operational synergies. The acquisition effect would improve the markets of both enterprises.
Mr. Jeremy P. Feakins, Ocean Thermal Energy’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "The proposed acquisition offers an extraordinary opportunity to amplify and strengthen our existing business. We believe the combination of both businesses could create a lifetime of possibilities. The acquisition would also accelerate our strategy to pursue sustainable energy and water production and broaden our leadership in marine renewable energy. We would gain additional business, which will support our growing pipeline of projects. We look forward to the closing of the deal and providing investors with further details."
Ocean Thermal Energy Corporation (CPWR), closed Wednesday's trading session at $0.05301, up 17.80%, on 9,000 volume with 1 trade. The average volume for the last 3 months is 99,449 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.037/$0.40.

4-Traders, The Street, Stockhouse, MarketWatch, InvestorsHub, YCharts, Streetwise Reports, and TradingView reported on Ethos Gold Corp. (ETHOF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Ethos Gold Corp. focuses on the acquisition and exploration of mineral properties internationally. At present, it holds one property in the White Gold District in the Yukon Territory. Ethos Gold has 100 percent ownership in the WC property. The Company mainly explores for gold, antimony, arsenic, lead, and silver deposits.
OTCQB-listed, Ethos Gold has its corporate office in Vancouver, British Columbia. Incorporated in 2007, the Company previously went by the name Ethos Capital Corp. It changed its name to Ethos Gold Corp. in April of 2012.
The Company’s WC property consists of 44 contiguous quartz claims totaling approximately 815 ha. The WC property is a target for intrusion-related 'Pogo-style' mineralization or fault controlled epithermal systems such as the nearby Coffee Deposit.
In 2012, Ethos Gold contracted Ground Truth Exploration, Inc. to conduct a small 301 soil geochemical sampling program for the WC property. This was completed in July of 2012.
The intention of the program was to identify areas of interest based on anomalous gold in soil values and to establish the mineral potential of the property. Samples were collected along 10 sample lines. Individual samples were collected with 50 meters between stations along traverse lines.
Fourteen sample sites returned values in excess of 10 ppb Au with a maximum value of 171 ppb Au. The sample with the second highest gold concentration (119 ppb Au) has coincident anomalous antimony (19 ppm Sb), arsenic (117 ppm As), lead (200 ppm Pb), and silver (13 ppm Ag).
The anomalous multi-element chemistry is similar to that identified by Ethos Gold at the Betty property, attributed to bonanza vein mineralization derived from and related to Western Copper's Casino Au-Cu-Mo porphyry.
Ethos has working capital of $6.5 million and 47.3 million shares issued and outstanding. The Company retains a highly qualified and successful management team. Mr. Craig Roberts, P.Eng, is the Company’s Interim President and Chief Executive Officer, Director and Vice President of Corporate Development. Mr. Roberts is a mining engineer.

Standard Lithium Ltd. (TSX.V: SLL) (FRA: S5L) (OTC: STLHF)
Standard Lithium (TSXV:SLL) (OTCQB:STLHF) was featured today in a report from Investorideas.com, one of the first global investor news sources covering renewable energy with its Renewableenergystocks.com content, which looks at the race for the best batteries as sustainability becomes a mandate and how lithium will play a leading role. STLHF is well positioned as a strategic US source of battery quality lithium materials and is currently focused on the immediate development of its flagship, 180,000-acre Smackover Lithium project located in southern Arkansas. Also today, the company was highlighted in a publication from Financialnewsmedia.com, examining how it doesn’t exactly take a crystal ball to see that we need all the lithium we can mine… as it’s the preferred battery type for almost every devise out there from mobile phones to cars.
Standard Lithium Ltd. (OTC: STLHF) is focused on unlocking the value of existing large-scale U.S.-based lithium brine resources that can quickly be brought into production. The Company believes new lithium production can rapidly be brought on stream by minimizing project risks at selection stage; resource, political & geographic, and regulatory & permitting; and by leveraging advances in lithium extraction technologies and processes.
The Company’s flagship project is in southern Arkansas. The more than 180,000-acre “Smackover Project” is in the most prolific and productive brine processing region in North America. Agreements with large commercial brine operators in the region will allow Standard Lithium to utilize the extensive existing infrastructure, including brine supply and disposal pipelines, water, power and a trained workforce to fast-track project development timelines.
“Arkansas produces about 9.4 billion gallons of brine per year, according to 2010-2016 average statistics reported by the Arkansas Oil & Gas Commission.”
Standard Lithium signed a binding MoU with global specialty chemicals company LANXESS Corporation and its U.S. affiliate Great Lakes Chemical Corporation with the purpose of demonstrating the commercial viability of extraction of lithium from brine (“tail brine”) that is produced as part of LANXESS’ bromine extraction business at its three Southern Arkansas facilities.
LANXESS’ land operations in Southern Arkansas encompass more than 150,000 acres, 10,000 brine leases and surface agreements and 250 miles of pipelines. LANXESS extracts the brine from its wells located throughout the area, and the brine is transported to the three Arkansas plants through a network of pipelines. The three bromine extraction plants currently employ approximately 500 people and process and reinject several hundred thousand barrels of brine per day.
Standard Lithium has developed a breakthrough rapid lithium extraction process that reduces the recovery time of extracting lithium from brine to as little as several hours vs. the current industry method that takes years. The process is also much more environmentally friendly with a significantly smaller footprint than the conventional processes. The company has a signed agreement to locate a demonstration scale lithium extraction plant inside one of LANXESS’ chemical plants in Southern Arkansas.
The Company has also signed an option agreement with NYSE-listed Tetra Technologies for the lithium rights for exploration, extraction, and possible commercial development on approximately 30,000 acres of brine leases in Southern Arkansas. The largest available land package.
Recent laboratory results of four brine samples recovered from two existing wells in Standard Lithium’s project area showed lithium concentrations ranging between 347-461 mg/L lithium, with an average of 450 mg/L lithium in one of the wells and 350 mg/L in the other. Geological modeling of the project area is complete, and a maiden resource report is on the horizon.
World demand for lithium continues to surge. The global lithium compounds market is projected to reach U.S. $5.87 billion by 2020 at a compound annual growth rate of 13.22% between 2015 and 2020. Lithium-ion batteries are the fastest growing segment of the market.
Standard Lithium’s commitment to being a premier, innovation-driven company focused on developing and commercializing new modern processes for lithium extraction is bolstered by the leading experts that comprise the company’s Scientific Advisory Council. Each member was selected because of their experience and expertise in areas that are central to and/or complement Standard Lithium’s current development plans. Standard Lithium recently welcomed to the Council world-renowned chemist Dr. Barry Sharpless, the recipient of the 2001 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work on chirally catalyzed oxidation reactions.
Standard Lithium is led by a team of professionals with proven strong technical and project development skills. CEO Robert Mintak has a global network of industry contacts and is a pioneer in the rapidly evolving lithium space. COO and President Dr. Andy Robinson is an experienced geoscientist with 20+ years of experience and a PhD in Geochemistry from the University of Bristol, UK. Dr. Robinson has worked on a wide range of projects in the resource, power and energy sectors in Europe, Africa, and North and South America.
The company recently appointed Robert Cross as non-executive chairman. Cross is an engineer with 25 years of experience as a financier and company builder in the mining and oil and gas sectors. He co-founded and serves as chairman of B2Gold, a top-performing growing gold producer which is expected to achieve nearly 1 million ounces of low-cost gold production in 2018. He was also co-founder and chairman of Bankers Petroleum Ltd.; co-founder and chairman of Petrodorado Energy Ltd.; and until October 2007 was the non-executive chairman of Northern Orion Resources Inc. He also was previously the chairman and CEO of Yorkton Securities Inc., and a partner in investment banking with Gordon Capital Corp. in Toronto. Cross has an engineering degree from the University of Waterloo (1982) and received an MBA from Harvard in 1987.
Following a multi-million-dollar financing in Q1 2018, Standard Lithium is well-positioned to meet its upcoming milestones including two maiden resource reports and the launch of its breakthrough rapid lithium extraction technology.

Over the past few financial quarters, Sugarmade has seen revenue growth patterns expand geographically. As recently as mid-2017, the majority of hydroponic-related revenue growth was seen from California and other West Coast marketplaces, however growth is becoming more geographically dispersed among U.S. states where legalization has eased restriction. This movement into the United Kingdom further expands the base of geographic growth areas for Sugarmade.
Sugarmade recently launched a new corporate initiative in the booming industrial hemp and CBD, committing up to $1 million in capital over the next 12 months to invest in Hempistry, Inc., a privately held Nevada corporation. Hempistry has begun planting an ultra-high cannabidiol (CBD) industrial hemp strain on a land option it holds on 23,000 acres of prime Kentucky farmland.

The U.S. hemp industry is expected to produce well over $1 billion in revenues in 2018, with a compound annual growth rate of 14 percent through 2022, according to the Hemp Business Journal.
Demand for industrial hemp and products derived from hemp is soaring, with no let-up in sight, which the company sees as a “tremendous opportunity to become a supplier to this fast-growing sector,” said Chairman and CEO Jimmy Chan, who is also an advisor and minority shareholder of Hempistry.
Sugarmade’s investment into the market for high-CBD hemp is expected to be highly accretive for common shareholders in two ways. First, Sugarmade’s investment will be in the form of common shares in Hempistry allowing Sugarmade common shareholders to possibly benefit from any future initial public offering of Hempistry. Second, Sugarmade is expected to sign a supply agreement with Hempistry for cultivation supplies, which would be additive to corporate revenues.

Black Iron Inc. (TSX: BKI) (OTC: BKIRF) (GR: BIN)
Canadian iron ore exploration and development company Black Iron (TSX: BKI) (OTC: BKIRF) (GR: BIN) is focused on advancing to production its wholly owned Shymanivske Iron Ore Project, located in Krivyi Rih, Ukraine, in the southern part of the historic KrivBass iron ore mining district. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/b0rSU.
Black Iron Inc. (TSX: BKI) (OTC: BKIRF) (GR: BIN) is a Canadian iron ore exploration and development company advancing to production its wholly owned Shymanivske Iron Ore Project, located in Krivyi Rih, Ukraine. Black Iron’s Shymanivske project is situated in the southern part of the historic KrivBass iron ore mining district, a highly developed iron ore mining region with well-established infrastructure and nearby skilled labor forces. Surrounded by seven producing iron ore mines, the Shymanivske project will produce an ultra-high-grade, 68-percent iron ore concentrate with few impurities at very low cost.
Iron ore concentrates are one of the essential raw materials used by the steel industry to either make sinter or highly valued pellets. Black Iron’s concentrate can be used in either application and is an ideal source to make pellets since it does not need to be ground finer and contains very few impurities. According to the CRU Group, an internationally recognized top global business intelligence provider and consultancy specializing in commodities, there is a growing global shortage of pellet feed resulting in a supply/demand gap of 133Mt against the current base of approximately 400Mt consumed by 2035. According to a recent report issued by Zion Market Research, the global iron ore pellets market was valued at around US$25.22 billion in 2017 and is expected to reach US$50.12 billion by 2024, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.1 percent between 2018 and 2024 (http://nnw.fm/2vaDR).
Countries around the world, most notably China (http://nnw.fm/Je8gs), have instituted regulatory changes to curb polluting emissions from steel mills through numerous methods, including encouraging a shift to higher grade iron feed products such as pellets as less coal needs to be burnt per ton of steel produced.
Black Iron’s Shymanivske’s project, which is expected to produce ultra-high-grade 68 percent iron content pellet feed iron concentrate, is generating significant interest from steel mills and global commodity trading houses. Use of ultra-high-grade 68-percent iron content product in the production of steel is a value-added product to customers since it increases blast furnace productivity and reduces greenhouse gas emissions generated per ton of steel produced.
The project’s proximity to rail lines (1 mile), electrical power (20 miles), sea ports (140 to 260 miles) and a skilled workforce (6 miles) significantly reduces the up-front construction costs and allows for the mine to be built in a phased approach. The Shymanivske project has been ranked by the CRU Group in the lowest position of the business cost curve for pellet feed projects currently under development and as the second lowest in capital intensity (construction capital divided by annual production) within CRU Group’s extensive database (http://nnw.fm/3MXsT). This low-cost position makes the project economics very robust to any shocks in iron ore price while providing a very high return at current and forecast prices.
Black Iron continues to advance its project on several fronts including construction funding and off-take agreements (http://nnw.fm/tQ4g2). Discussions with Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense to transfer a parcel of land required by the company for location of its processing plant, waste rock and tailings are nearing finalization, as are discussions with the Kryviy Rih City Council to lease a portion of the surface rights currently under that body’s control. The recent engagement of Ivan Markovich as Black Iron’s Vice President of Government and Community Relations will assist the company in these endeavors given his extensive network of relationships with senior Ukraine government officials.
The Shymanivske project holds a mining allotment permit for a large iron ore deposit with a NI 43-101 compliant resource estimated to contain 646 Mt (million tons) Measured and Indicated mineral resources, consisting of 355 Mt Measured mineral resources grading 31.6% total iron and 18.8% magnetic iron, and Indicated mineral resources of 290 Mt grading 31.1% total iron and 17.9% magnetic iron, using a cut-off grade of 10% magnetic iron. Additionally, there are 188 Mt of Inferred mineral resources grading 30.1% total iron and 18.4% magnetic iron.
Full mineral resource details and project economics can be found in the NI 43-101 compliant technical report entitled “Preliminary Economic Assessment of the Re-scoped Shymanivske Iron Ore Deposit” effective November 21, 2017, under the Company’s profile on SEDAR at?www.sedar.com.
Black Iron’s management and board of directors is stacked with experts well-versed in successfully building and operating iron ore projects. CEO Matt Simpson, P.Eng. is the former general manager of Mining for Rio Tinto’s Iron Core Company of Canada and worked for Hatch designing global metallurgical refineries. He is also a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101. Chairman Bruce Humphrey is the former COO of GoldCorp and former chairman of Consolidated Thompson Iron Ore mines which was sold to Cliff’s resources for US$4.9 billion.
Les Kwasik, COO, has over 40 years of hands-on experience building and operating mines globally with companies such as INCO (VALE) and Xstrata (Glencore). Paul Bozoki, CFO, is the former CFO of CD Capital Partners, operating in the Ukraine. Bill Hart, senior vice president of corporate development, has over 30 years of experience selling iron ore while working for Rio Tinto, Cliffs Natural Resources and most recently Roy Hill Holdings Ltd. Ivan Markovich was recently engaged in the capacity of Black Iron’s vice president of Government and Community Relations to leverage his extensive network of relationships with senior Ukraine government officials.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF)
The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF) was highlighted today in a publication from Investorideas.com, examining how there is growing demand to fill top tier management positions as the sector enters a new era of maturity. Also today, NetworkNewsWire released a report on the company detailing how TGODF this morning announced that it has mailed an election form to all registered shareholders of record as of January 31, 2019 who have an address of record outside the United States. The election form was sent in reference to the previously announced distribution of unit purchase warrants of TGOD Acquisition Corp. ("SpinCo") per its plan of arrangement with SpinCo. Additionally, the company was highlighted in an article looking at producers and ancillary utilities from Microspeculators.com.
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.

Earth Science Tech, Inc. (OTCQB: ETST) (“ETST" or the “Company"), an innovative biotech company focused on the cannabidiol (CBD), nutraceutical and pharmaceutical fields, medical devices, and research and development, today announces that it has entered into agreements with CannaBiz and Dessert Sun Distribution to distribute the Company’s High Grade Full Spectrum Cannabinoids line throughout pharmacies, chiropractors, dispensaries, athletic clubs and clinics in the United States.
Earth Science Tech, Inc. (ETST) is an innovative biotechnology company operating in the fields of hemp cannabinoid (CBD), nutraceutical, pharmaceutical and medical device research and development. Earth Science Tech offers the highest purity and quality, full-spectrum, high-grade hemp CBD (cannabidiol) oil on the market. Made using the supercritical CO2 liquid extraction process, the company’s CBD oil is 100 percent natural and organic. Earth Science Tech has partnered with the University of Central Oklahoma and DV Biologics Laboratory to conduct research and development projects that scientifically support and advance the healthcare benefits of its high-grade hemp CBD oil.
Earth Science Tech Inc. currently has three wholly owned subsidiaries focused on developing its role as a world leader in the CBD space and expanding its work in the pharmaceutical and medical device sectors. These subsidiaries include:
- Earth Science Pharma, Inc., which is committed to development of low cost, noninvasive diagnostic tools, medical devices, testing processes and vaccines for sexually transmitted infections and/or diseases. Earth Science Pharmaceutical CEO and chief science officer Michel Aubé is leading the company’s research and development efforts. The company’s first medical device, MSN-2, is a home kit designed for the detection of STIs, such as chlamydia, from a self-obtained gynecological specimen. Earth Science Pharma is working to develop and bring to market medical devices and vaccines that meet the specific needs of women.
- Cannabis Therapeutics, Inc. (“CTI”), which is poised to take a leadership role in the development of new, leading-edge, cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products. CTI is invested in research and development to explore and harness the medicinal power of cannabidiol. The company holds a provisional application patent for a CBD product that is focused on developing treatments for breast and ovarian cancers.

Kanna and CBD synergistically enhance one another, providing optimal relaxation, an uplifting sensation, enhanced focus and the added benefit of assisting with nicotine reduction therapy.
Earth Science Tech celebrated a significant, developmental year during 2017 by sharing its achievements in a condensed end-of-year report. Among the report’s highlights are the implementation of a development plan for the coming three years, which includes expanding into Canada and opening new manufacturing and shipping facilities. Of particular interest is the acquisition of Canna Inno Laboratories Inc., a company headquartered in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, which gives Earth Science Tech access to Canadian government grants offered to innovators in the pharmaceutical industry. ETST has also launched development of proprietary prophylactic therapies utilizing cannabidiol (CBD) to treat various forms of breast cancer.
In October 2017, ETST announced it is cooperating with the Clinique SIDA Amité (AIDS Friendship Clinic) for a mini-clinical trial, the last trial needed before the MSN-2 device, designed for the detection of STIs, enters molecular diagnostic trials. And in November 2017, the company began pre-launch human trials on a new CBD formula to fight against the U.S. opioid epidemic. The new formula, expected to decrease cravings and the negative effects of withdrawal in addicts, is based on industrial hemp CBD mixed with a known natural ingredient proven to help increase dopamine levels. ETST’s medical devices will first be launched in Vietnam, Djibouti and Morocco while the company awaits regulatory permission to enter the North American market.
The company expects to up-list to the OTCQB in early 2018, which management believes will attract well-funded institutional investors and pave the way to becoming the next billion-dollar-in-capitalization company on the OTC markets. Other highlights include completion of the company’s Scientific Advisory Council with a team of recognized scientists, the launching of several CBD-infused edible products and entry into the medical devices market through collaborative partnerships.
Earth Science Tech has signed a collaborate agreement with Laboratories BNK Canada, a private laboratory that will conduct the clinical studies necessary for MSN-2 medical device-related services to meet regulatory requirements. ETST has confirmed the MSN-2 device’s ability to detect chlamydia, and is working to validate similar results for gonorrhea, both highly infectious diseases that often have permanent consequences for patients. ETST will also add testing for trichomoniasis and a complete body fluid panel to detect the different serotypes of the human papillomavirus (HPV) that causes cervical cancer. These additions will help the company create sales opportunities in the global market for diagnostic testing of STDs that Transparency Market Research has indicated will grow to $108 billion by 2019.
Cannabis Therapeutics is in the development stage of two cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical drugs and three cannabinoid-based nutraceutical products targeting a variety of ailments such as anxiety, depression, triple negative breast cancer, and fatty liver disease, among others. Research into the benefits of the non-psychoactive cannabinoid molecules found in the cannabis plant is supported by ETST’s International Application for Provisional Patent titled “Cannabidiol Compositions Including Mixtures and Uses Thereof,” which was filed on October 8, 2015. Cannabis Thera’s R&D efforts are concentrated on developing CBD-based drugs and nutraceutical products and in working to integrate the CBD molecule with existing generic drug molecules to create more efficient medications with fewer and less severe side effects. A report in Hemp Business Journal predicts the CBD consumer market will grow to $2.1 billion by 2020, while other industry experts expect an increase to almost $3 billion by 2021. A recent report by Statista projects the U.S. consumer market for cannabinoid-based pharmaceuticals could reach $50 billion by the year 2029.
The management team at Earth Science Tech brings decades of invaluable experience to the nutraceutical, dietary supplement field as well as the life sciences sectors. Nickolas S. Tabraue, who serves as the president, director and chief operating officer, is an industry veteran with extensive knowledge of supplements, retail management, customer service and sales expertise.

QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (OTC: QMCQF) (TSX-V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ)
In its QMC year-end MD&A report, Quantum Minerals (OTC: QMCQF) (TSX.V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ) referenced its progress, stating “as this new mineralized zone is being evaluated, it could quickly add potential resource expansion within the Irgon Project,” (http://nnw.fm/1pJNZ). To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/s3Wdj.
QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (OTC: QMCQF) (TSX-V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ) is a British Columbia based company engaged in the business of acquisition, exploration and development of natural resource properties. QMC’s focus is on creating shareholder value through strategic acquisition and development of high quality lithium, silver, gold, nickel, copper and zinc prospects.
QMC’s current properties are in the Canadian province of Manitoba, one of Canada’s most productive, centrally located mining regions. These resources include the Irgon Lithium Mine project and two Volcanic Massive Sulphide (“VMS”) properties – the Rocky Lake and Rocky-Namew known collectively as the Namew Lake District Project – which contain base metal-rich mineral deposits. Excellent access and well-developed mining infrastructure to the company’s wholly-owned Irgon Lithium Mine Project offers significant value and ramps up the near-term production schedule, putting QMC in a position to take advantage of rising lithium prices.
The region’s historic resource estimate of lithium is well documented in a 1956 Assessment Report developed by a previous owner, Lithium Corporation of Canada Ltd. The project’s historical resource estimate of 1.2 million tons grading 1.51% lithium-oxide over a strike length of 365 meters and to a depth of 213 meters is being updated by QMC through a detailed channel sampling and subsequent drill program.
North Face Software Ltd. recently created an interactive 3-D model of the Irgon Dike utilizing all historical data derived from past drilling and underground work. The 3-D model clearly demonstrates that exploration and underground development has only taken place on the central portion of the dike, leaving significant potential to quickly increase tonnage.
The company’s latest assay results, obtained from 144 channel samples at QMC’s Irgon Lithium Mine Project, provided encouraging and positive results that compare favorably with the historic assays. QMC has received a drill permit from the Sustainable Development Office of the Manitoba government and is in the process of requesting and assessing bids from drilling contractors. The company plans to begin a 2,000-meter drill program to confirm the historic lithium oxide assay results documented in the historic 1953-54 drill program.
QMC’s experienced leadership team includes specialists in mineral exploration, geology, engineering, new business development, marketing and investor relations. The company’s team of qualified advisors includes consultant Bruce E. Goad, P.Geo., who has 40 years of experience in mineral exploration in Canada, Argentina, Asia and Africa. As a Qualified Person, Goad has worked on numerous deposit styles including rare element pegmatites, porphyry, banded iron formation (BIF) gold deposits, skarn, greisens, and VMS. He has a wide and varied skill set which includes precious, base, industrial and rare metal projects with a sharp focus on gold exploration. Goad is the author of several scholarly publications on pegmatite granites of the southeastern Manitoba region.
The market for lithium has surged over the past three years with prices per metric ton tripling. The world’s rising demand for portable power can easily been seen in the electric vehicle and mobile device industries – both of which use lithium-based, renewable batteries as a power resource. QMC’s high potential prospects and experienced management team, both in geology and corporate finance, put QMC and its shareholders in an excellent position to take advantage of the lithium, precious and base metals markets.
QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (QMCQF), closed the day's trading session at $0.215, off by 5.08%, on 17,750 volume with 14 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 62,641 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.1155/$0.7555.

SinglePoint, Inc. (SING)
Technology and investment company SinglePoint (OTCQB: SING) yesterday provided a video update to company shareholders highlighting its initiatives in the burgeoning industrial hemp derived CBD market. To view the full video update, visit: http://nnw.fm/A8KBl. To view the full press release, visit: http://nnw.fm/svEv8.
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 $0.0186, off by 2.11%, on 2,296,310 volume with 99 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 6,159,847 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0106/$0.078.
