UEX Corporation is a junior exploration company with a varied portfolio of projects in Saskatchewan’s Athabasca Basin. Since its establishment, the Company has made major advancements in the discovery and development of existing and new uranium deposits in the Athabasca Basin. UEX is based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The Company also has a satellite office in Vancouver, British Columbia.
UEX is involved in 19 uranium projects, including eight that are 100 percent owned and operated by UEX, one joint venture with Orano Canada, Inc. (Orano) and ALX Uranium Corp. (ALX) that is 50.1 percent owned by UEX and is under option to and operated by ALX, and also eight joint ventures with Orano, one joint venture with Orano and JCU (Canada) Exploration Company Limited that are operated by Orano, and one project (Christie Lake), that is 60 percent owned by UEX with JCU (Canada) Exploration Company Limited which is operated by UEX.
UEX’s underpinning is considerable existing uranium resources. Additionally, the Company is exploring the West Bear Cobalt-Nickel Prospect via its 100 percent owned subsidiary CoEx Metals Corporation. The West Bear Project was earlier part of UEX’s Hidden Bay Project. It contains the West Bear Cobalt-Nickel Prospect and the West Bear Uranium Deposit.
UEX is also increasing its resources at Christie Lake. The new Orora Discovery tested the Company’s first identified new target on this project. Overall, UEX has a large inventory of historical mineralized holes that can undergo follow up to make new discoveries. Fundamentally, UEX’s emphasis is on growing Christie Lake Uranium and enhancing Shareholder value through Cobalt.
UEX has received written confirmation from JCU (Canada) Exploration Company Limited acknowledging that UEX has increased its interest in the Christie Lake Uranium Project to 60 percent. UEX made the latest $1 million property payment to JCU and completed the 2018 exploration work commitments under the Christie Lake Option Agreement before the January 1, 2019 deadline. As a result, its ownership interest in the Christie Lake Joint Venture has increased from 45 percent to 60 percent effective November 13, 2018.
Last month, UEX announced that drilling started on its 100 percent owned West Bear Property with the goal of expanding the high-grade West Bear Co-Ni Deposit. The 2019 winter exploration program will consist of about 17,000 m of drilling in roughly 110-160 holes employing two drill rigs. At first, this program will concentrate on extending high-grade cobalt mineralization along strike to the west.
Last week, UEX announced the first tranche of assay results from the winter drilling program on its West Bear Property in the eastern Athabasca Basin of northern Saskatchewan. So far, UEX has completed 42 holes of this winter’s exploration program. Assay results have been received for the first five holes of the winter program. Cobalt mineralization was encountered in all five holes. The strike length of the West Bear Deposit has been increased from 250 m to 400 m.

MannKind Corporation (MNKD)
Stock Market Stop, Simply Wall St, Street Insider, Stockhouse, The Street, Seeking Alpha, Talk Traders, Zacks, Proactive Investors, GlobeNewswire, InvestorsHub, Investor Place, Stock News, MarketWatch, Market Screener, Morningstar, Barchart, and GuruFocus reported earlier on MannKind Corporation (MNKD), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
A biopharmaceutical enterprise, MannKind Corporation concentrates on the development and commercialization of inhaled therapeutic products. These products are for patients with diseases such as pulmonary arterial hypertension and diabetes. In addition, the Company employs field sales and medical representatives throughout the United States. MannKind has its corporate office in Westlake Village, California. It also has a state-of-the art manufacturing facility in Danbury, Connecticut.
MannKind’s dry powder formulations are founded on Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved excipients. This includes fumaryl diketopiperazine (the excipient used in Technosphere® inhalation powders) and mannitol. The Company’s pipeline includes Epinephrine Technosphere® for anaphylaxis; and Treprostinil Technosphere® for Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH). Additionally, MannKind’s pipeline includes Palonosetron Technosphere® for Chemotherapy-Induced Nausea and Vomiting (CINV).
MannKind is now commercializing Afrezza® (insulin human) inhalation powder. This is its first FDA-approved product. Afrezza® is the only inhaled rapid-acting mealtime insulin in the United States. Afrezza® utilizes the Company’s above-mentioned proprietary Technosphere® formulation technology. The basis of this technology is on a class of organic molecules designed to self-assemble into small particles onto which drug molecules can be loaded.
Afrezza® is available in the U.S. by prescription from pharmacies across the country. Afrezza® is a fast-acting inhaled insulin used to improve glycemic control in adults with diabetes. Afrezza® is taken at the start of a meal using the specially designed inhaler. One breath delivers one dose. Afrezza® dissolves quickly upon inhalation to the deep lung. It delivers insulin fast to the bloodstream. Peak insulin levels are attained within 12 to 15 minutes of use and help to control post-meal blood sugar spikes that affect HbA1C levels.
MannKind’s inhalers efficiently focus the energy supplied by the patient’s breath directly onto the dry powder. This results in high delivery performance. The Company’s single-use and reusable inhalers are breath-powered. Therefore, they necessitate only the patient’s inhalation effort to deliver the powder.
In January, MannKind announced a direct purchase program to assist those with diabetes obtain the Company’s inhaled insulin, Afrezza®, for as little as $4 a day. Furthermore, MannKind has launched an enhanced copay and savings card program. It will enable patients with commercial insurance to fill their prescription at their local pharmacy for as low as $15.
Mr. Michael Castagna, Chief Executive Officer of MannKind, said, “Our new Afrezza Patient Direct Program enables us to streamline the numerous costs and inefficiencies that exist in today’s healthcare system, so we can pass along the savings directly for these patients. We want to be part of the solution for the future of healthcare and healthy living.”

(LIACF), and today we choose to report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
American Lithium Corp. engages in the acquisition, exploration, and development of lithium deposits within mining-friendly jurisdictions across the Americas. The Company’s Fish Lake Valley lithium brine properties are around 38 kilometers from Albemarle's Silver Peak (the largest lithium producer in the U.S.). OTCQB-listed, American Lithium has its head office in Vancouver, British Columbia.
The Company holds options to acquire Nevada lithium brine claims totaling 22,332 acres (9,038 hectares). This includes 18,552 contiguous acres (7,508 hectares) in Fish Lake Valley, Esmeralda County; and the 2,240-acre (907-hectare) San Emidio project in Washoe County.
Fish Lake Valley is one of the most promising and largely undeveloped lithium brine basins in Nevada. Its geological and geophysical characteristics are akin to the Clayton Valley basin situated to the southeast. The Fish Lake Valley land package acquisition includes the North and South Bowl Playas. This acquisition covers all vital structures of the North and South Bowl Playas, which contain the lithium brines, and where gravity data shows distinct gravity lows.
American Lithium is expanding its existing holdings in Fish Lake Valley, Esmeralda County. The Company is already the main land holder in the Valley, with 18,552 contiguous acres under management. American Lithium previously entered into an agreement to acquire an additional 3,575-acre parcel in the Valley, comprising 167 contiguous claims called the Gap-Lode Project. This Project overlies 2,480 acres of public land. The Gap-Lode Project is adjacent to an existing 1,094-acre claim block.
The San Emidio Project is 60 miles (100 km) northeast of Reno - home to Tesla's Gigafactory. Lithium concentrations in brines at San Emidio are reasonably expected to increase at depth. This is also the case at Clayton Valley. A gravity geophysical survey indicates a previously discovered near surface lithium brine anomaly on the west side of basinal low. Anomalous lithium values were detected during brine sampling. The highest value was 80 mg/L.
Last week, American Lithium reported that it engaged Harris Exploration Drilling and Associates, Inc., of Fallon Nevada, to begin drilling on its 630 ha (1,550 acre), TLC lithium claystone project situated minutes from the mining center of Tonopah, Nevada.
The wholly-owned Tonopah Lithium Claystone (TLC) Project is scheduled for 1,600 m (5,000 feet) of 5.5" diameter reverse circulation drill sampling to increase the scope and subsequent valuation of this prospective lithium-bearing claystone-rich environment. Twenty-two (22) grab samples were previously analyzed returning grades ranging from 129.5 to 1380 parts per million (ppm) lithium (Li) with an average grade of 656.5 ppm Li.
Mr. Mike Kobler, American Lithium Chief Executive Officer, said, "With this drilling program, we look forward to determining the depth extension of the regional lithium claystone target which we believe holds great promise as this particular mineralization could represent a highly economically advantageous and game-changing extraction opportunity poised to meet the inevitable resurgence and growth of the domestic lithium resource sector in Nevada."

Orocobre entered into a joint venture (JV) agreement with Advantage Lithium in November of 2016 on its Cauchari Project and several exploration projects. With this agreement, Orocobre divested a number of its lithium brine exploration projects, which were held by way of its Argentine subsidiary South American Salars SA (SAS), to Advantage Lithium for a 35 percent share off Advantage.
The Cauchari project is a 50/50 joint venture between Orocobre and Advantage Lithium. Advantage Lithium is increasing its interest in the project from the present 50 percent to 75 percent via the expenditure of US$5M or by completing a Feasibility Study (FS). The remaining interest is held by Orocobre.
Recently, the Cauchari project contains an inferred resource of roughly 470,000 tonnes lithium carbonate equivalent and 1.6 million tonnes of potash.
Regarding Phase 1 drilling, a five hole rotary drill program started in May of last year. Phase 2 drilling will center on potential extensions of the existing inferred resource at Cauchari and exploration where no prior drilling has taken place.
In partnership with Toyota Tsusho Corporation (TTC) and JEMSE, the Company has constructed, and is now operating, the globe’s first commercial, brine-based lithium operation built in approximately 20 years. Orocobre is a leading company in Argentina's “Lithium Triangle”.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF)
The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings (TSX: TGOD) (OTCQX: TGODF), a cannabis-focused research and development company, was recently classified in an Institutional Equity Research report by CIBC World Markets as one of the few small- and medium-sized businesses that have what it takes to lead the new global cannabis market. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/kZ1xN.
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.

TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE: TCAN)
Emerging cannabis branding, transportation and distribution company TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE: TCAN) (FSE: TH8) continues to actively develop its market profile for 2019 after recently accepting a Northern California real estate option agreement from the company’s CEO. The 6.5-acre site has a 196,000-square-foot facility, as well as cannabis packaging and processing equipment and space for a potential 400,000-square-foot grow facility, according to a news release (http://nnw.fm/SWnO6).
TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE: TCAN) through its subsidiaries specializes in assisting clients who are cannabis farmers and manufacturers get recognized by end consumers who in turn purchase their products. TransCanna offers or will be offering services to support almost every aspect of the cannabis-related eco-system; from branding and design, to transportation and distribution, to marketing and sales.
California’s legalized adult-use recreational marijuana market opened for business January 1, 2018. The state’s Bureau of Cannabis Control is responsible for regulating all commercial activities in the state including cultivation, distribution and transportation. Moving cannabis products in the California marketplace is extremely challenging due to municipal and state laws and regulations, which can differ among cities and counties. Since cannabis remains illegal under federal law, Department of Transportation regulated companies are barred from participating in the market, which means companies looking to excel in the sector must hold a state-issued distributor license from the Bureau of Cannabis Control.
TransCanna has already entered into an Intellectual Property Rights and Royalty Agreement for the Track & Trace software platform required by the state of California. TCM Distribution, the operating company managed by TransCanna, has received a transportation and distribution permit from the city of Adelanto and a temporary transportation and distribution permit from the state of California. TransCanna has also executed a land lease to build a 10,000-square-foot transportation and distribution facility in Adelanto.
TransCanna is strategically creating a distribution network throughout California that places its facilities no further than a three-hour drive from most any client. The company is in the process of leasing or purchasing properly licensed and permitted warehouses strategically located throughout California along with new secure trucks, sprinter vans and/or armored vehicles.
TransCanna plans to create its own portfolio of branded products for the cannabis and hemp sectors. The company’s management team intends to translate the skills, knowledge and experience gained from a combined 60 years of branding and marketing experience in the music, professional sports and alcohol industries into TransCanna and the cannabis industry.
As part of the “TransCanna Way,” the company intends to manage most aspects of the supply chain from upper end procurement, branding, transportation and distribution, to marketing and sales.
Leading TransCanna as its CEO and chairman is James Pakulis, who has three decades of experience working with public and private entrepreneurial companies in a variety of emerging and high-growth sectors. He is formerly the president and a director of Lifestyle Delivery Systems Inc. (CSE: LDS) (OTCQB: LDSYF), a vertically integrated cannabis-related entity operating in California. Pakulis was chairman and CEO of General Cannabis Inc. which from 2010 to 2012 owned WeedMaps. Pakulis oversaw the company’s growth from zero to over $16 million in annual revenue in less than 24 months.
The company’s strategic advisors include individuals with extensive experience in branding, marketing, sales, distribution, production and supply chain management.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP)
Lexaria Bioscience (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP) is finding success through its ability to form subsidiaries specializing in the use of its patented drug-delivery platform, DehydraTECH. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/FRRh9.
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 nicotine and cannabinoids. To achieve higher absorption rates and fast onset, consumers traditionally defaulted to smoking. Lexaria provides a superior administration method by delivering these substances through a patented process within edible food products, thus eliminating all the harmful health consequences of smoking.
Lexaria’s technology is unique in that it takes advantage of GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) food ingredients processed with its patented DehydraTECHTM technology to improve taste, remove odor, and decrease the time to onset of bitter-tasting drugs. Lexaria is primarily a B2B enterprise and has existing cannabinoid licensing agreements with companies in Canada, the largest-market states in the United States, and internationally. Lexaria has entered into a R&D partnership with one of the largest cigarette companies in the world for oral forms of nicotine delivery. Lexaria has also developed its own brands partly for demonstration purposes, utilizing its patented technology to infuse hemp oil ingredients within popular foods such as coffee, tea, and supplements. These brands include ViPova™ 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 improve intestinal absorption as much as 500%. Lexaria has conducted multiple rounds of studies including in vivo and human clinical. In absorption studies conducted on rats, for example, Lexaria detected nicotine in the animal’s bloodstream just two minutes after it entered the stomach. In a randomized, double blinded human clinical study, cannabidiol (CBD) was measure in the human bloodstream at a 317% higher rate 30 minutes after swallowing a capsule processed with DehydraTECH than a non-enhanced capsule of equal strength.
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 have helped support B2B relationships with Fortune 500 companies. Lexaria has four distinct subsidiaries that focus on different market sectors: Hemp/CBD; Pharmaceutical; Cannabis; and Nicotine.
Aside from testing, a critical component of Lexaria Bioscience’s business model is a strong and growing intellectual property portfolio. As of the end of 2018, the company’s patent portfolio includes 53 patent applications filed and pending in more than 40 countries around the world; and 10 patents granted to date. Lexaria is expecting additional new patent awards both in the U.S. and internationally in 2019 and beyond. Some of its more recent areas of investigation have included human hormones and erectile dysfunction substances, among others.
Royalties play a vital role in Lexaria’s revenue-generating business model. The company out-licenses its technology (royalty) to third-partners and has signed royalty deals with start-up companies as well as with a Fortune 100. The company’s growth initiatives are guided by a management team headed by CEO Chris Bunka, a serial entrepreneur who has contributed to several multi-hundred million-dollar valuations over the course of his career. He is supported by a growing 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 $1.48, up 2.07%, on 316,604 volume with 379 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 183,511 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.75/$2.43.

The law firm of Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP has been retained as outside corporate counsel for all general business matters. The Dallas-based law firm will represent Sharing Services, Inc., and its subsidiaries as the company utilizes the direct selling channel for a significant component of its overall growth strategy.

Cyberfort Software, Inc. (CYBF)
The persistence of cybercrime is creating a measure of job security for the industries that care for individual home computers and large corporate networks, and some cybersecurity companies, such as Cyberfort Software Inc. (OTC: CYBF), are distinguishing themselves from the industry crowd through positive word of mouth.
Cyberfort Software, Inc. (CYBF) is a cybersecurity technology company specializing in the acquisition and development of security software, content filtering, and ad blocking technology. Headquartered in San Francisco, California, Cyberfort Software is actively dealing with various cyber threats through the development of innovative protection technologies designed for mobile, personal and business tech devices across multiple platforms.
Committed to the idea that everyone – from individuals to global corporations – should be able to enjoy a digital future free of malicious attacks robbing them of privacy and security, Cyberfort is working to strengthen its portfolio of cybersecurity IPs and stay one step ahead of cyberthreats. The growing plethora of tech devices enveloping everyday life opens the door to increasing cyberattacks through a stunning array of sophisticated cyberthreats. Protecting organizations and individuals with proactive security postures and protective measures is a key component of Cyberfort’s strategy to develop cybersecurity solutions that are smart, simple and efficient.
The company’s 2016 purchase of Vivio, a provider of pioneering AI content filtering and software protection, underscores Cyberfort’s commitment to cybersecurity. Vivio, an iOS 10 ad blocking app, currently serves over 10,000 unique users across iPhone, iPad and Mac. Vivio makes web browsing better, faster and more satisfying by blocking ads and reducing data usage, which also helps save battery life. Continuous ad blocking rule updates are delivered via an Intellectual Property Cloud-based autonomous engine with ad blocking tracker and malware detection filters.
Cyberfort recently signed a letter of intent to acquire Just Content Software which includes the Just Content app, software and underlying source code. Just Content is an efficacious and multi-functional ad blocking app that safeguards families and businesses with proprietary “Home Safe Filter” and “Business Filter” products. The Just Content app is available on iTunes and protects against unsafe links, adult content, phishing sites and inflammatory hate speech found on the internet, among other potential backdoor attacks and cyberthreats. A due diligence review is underway and a final determination regarding this acquisition is anticipated within weeks.
“Cyberfort aims to become a leader in developing cutting edge ad-blocking protective software that keeps the internet safe for families and business, which in our highly technological and immediate information-access society is a significant concern. Acquiring Just Content furthers our commitment to provide the best and most effective ad-blocking software in the marketplace,” says Cyberfort CEO Daniel Cattlin.
Favorable government regulations promoting tightened web security is a major factor driving adoption of web content filtering solution along with the public’s growing desire to better manage network bandwidth consumption and protect their online security and privacy. Cyberfort’s objective is to protect the data and integrity of personal and business computing assets and defend those assets against any threat or attack. The company’s software also offers symbiotic ad-blocking capabilities to complement its cyber defense effectiveness.
As Cyberfort continues to innovate, the Vivio team intends to leverage the current user base as a sandbox to test and optimize future incremental developments targeting an enterprise suite of tools that can be integrated into sector specific areas of growth. Key areas of focus include mobile device management, bring your own device (“BYOD”), mobile app management and secure mobile browser.
The Cyberfort leadership team is headlined by Cattlin, who offers a new age perspective to the business with expertise in project and asset management and a background in corporate finance. Cattlin brings both the operational and financial understanding to take companies from start-up and early development to expansion and capital growth within a public environment.
Chief Technology Officer Tomas Mistrik helped his team deliver a variety of technological products including the Vivio ad-blocking app for iOS 10 and the Silicon Valley-based Synergykit platform for mobile developers.
Technology Development Manager Krishna Kumar brings more than 10 years of experience in the Information Technology industry where he provided powerful security and ad-blocking measures for companies such as CSC and PayPal India.
Senior Advisor Harish Doddala brings nine years of product management and software engineering experience, delivering results for Cisco, VMware, Oracle, IBM and Siemens.

QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (OTC: QMCQF) (TSX-V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ)
QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (OTC: QMCQF) (TSX.V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ) engages in the acquisition, exploration and development of lithium and other mineral resource properties. The company’s emphasis is currently focused on the development of the high-quality, lithium-bearing Irgon Lithium Mine project and two copper, nickel, zinc, palladium, platinum, silver and gold volcanic massive sulphide (“VMS”) prospects.
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 $0.214, up 10.31%, on 83,262 volume with 23 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 63,089 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.1155/$0.73.

SinglePoint, Inc. (SING)
Technology and investment company SinglePoint (OTCQB: SING) was featured on this week’s episode of MoneyTV with Donald Baillargeon. The program is internationally-syndicated and reviews money-focused topics, featuring in-depth CEO and executive interviews from various companies offering insights into their operations and future outlooks. In this week’s episode, SinglePoint CEO Greg Lambrecht provided an update regarding the company’s acquisition activity. To view the full interview, visit: http://nnw.fm/h7Z7C. To view the full press release, visit: http://nnw.fm/7B5gw.
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 $0.01845, up 1.37%, on 1,549,526 volume with 132 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 6,067,809 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0106/$0.0776.

Pacific Software initially will focus on Brazil and China for BoaPin. After paying a registration fee to utilize the online trade portal, subscribers to the platform will have access to a variety of tools and features that may enhance and increase revenue initiatives by showcasing their commodities and products for sale or trade.
Buyers of the commodities, products or services will pay a transaction fee only to the company which could materialize in the form of cash, cash equivalents, royalties or in-kind fees.

The Flowr Corporation (TSX.V: FLWR) (OTC: FLWPF)
The Flowr Corporation (TSX.V: FLWR) (OTC: FLWPF) recently appointed North America’s first PhD whose research focused on cannabis production, Deron Caplan, as director of plant science. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/PEp62.
The Flowr Corporation (TSX.V: FLWR) (OTC: FLWPF), 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 $4.15, off by 0.48%, on 46,643 volume with 96 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 82,144 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $2.74/$8.00.
