(RCCMF), and today we choose to report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Nippon Dragon Resources, Inc. is a hybrid mining & technology enterprise listed on the OTC Markets. The Company has high potential and advanced stage mining assets combined with an innovative and exclusive green mining method. Nippon is active in the exploration and development of gold resources in the Province of Quebec. Nippon’s flagship gold property is Rocmec 1. Nippon Dragon Resources is headquartered in Brossard, Quebec.
The Company has its Thermal Fragmentation mining method. This mining method uses heat to 'spall' high-grade veins. This considerably lessens the use of explosives. The method only extracts the mineralized ore with minimal dilution. The extraction process allows thermal fragmentation with an accuracy of 2 cm to quickly extract any type of hard rock up to 110 cm wide. The thermal unit can be set up to extract a specific corridor. Thermal Fragmentation could be used as a stand-alone method or as a first-rate complement to any conventional hard rock mining operation.
In June of last year, Nippon Dragon Resources announced that following the sale of a Thermal Fragmentation Unit to its client, Metalfer Mining D.O.O, the Unit was shipped, received, inspected by border authorities and released to the client. Nippon’s technical team performed its customary four week orientation, training, and implementation programme of its thermal fragmentation mining method at Metalfer’s mining site in the Majdan Mountain district of Serbia.
Nippon Dragon Resources has a strategic partnership agreement with Val d’Or Resources (VOR). This partnership agreement will enhance Nippon Dragon’s position as an industry leader with its exclusive and patented Thermal Fragmentation technology. Through the creation of a new entity, Rocmec Gold, Inc., the new partnership is anticipated to substantially expand Nippon Dragon’s reach within Canada and other important markets.
Nippon’s flagship Rocmec 1 is a fully permitted project in Quebec. The project includes a 100-meter deep, two-compartment shaft, and an 844 meters decline, allowing access to four levels (50, 90, 110 and 130 meters).

Freddie Mac (FMCKL)
Penny Stock Tweets, 4-Traders, Interactive Brokers, OTC Markets, Pink Investing, stockcharting.tips, Wallmine, MarketWatch, Nasdaq, Stockhouse, moneyhub, GuruFocus, Investors Hangout, InvestorsHub, Trading View, Barchart, and Seeking Alpha reported earlier on Freddie Mac (FMCKL), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Freddie Mac operates in the secondary mortgage market in the U.S. It buys residential mortgage loans originated by lenders, and also invests in mortgage loans and mortgage-related securities. Freddie Mac supports the housing market and the nation’s renters, homebuyers and homeowners throughout the entire nation and in all economic cycles. The Company is headquartered in McLean, Virginia and was chartered by Congress in 1970.
Freddie Mac operates by way of three business lines. These comprise Single-Family, Multifamily, and Capital Markets. The Company’s Single-Family business supports responsible, sustainable homeownership. Freddie Mac works with lenders of all sizes - national, regional, and community lenders and credit unions - to purchase conventional, conforming mortgage loans for one- to four-unit homes (including condominiums and manufactured homes) up to a certain dollar amount set by the Company’s regulator.
Freddie Mac Multifamily (working with a network of specialized vendors) provides funding for loans on properties ranging from five units to hundreds of units across manifold buildings. Moreover, the Company’s Capital Markets business promotes the mortgage market’s liquidity. It makes funding more available to borrowers through buying mortgage-related securities guaranteed by Freddie Mac and other financial institutions as investments and managing its portfolio.
Because it operates in the U.S. secondary mortgage market, Freddie Mac doesn’t lend directly to borrowers. The Company purchases loans that meet its standards from approved lenders. With the money that lenders receive in return, they can make loans to other qualified borrowers. In securitizing pools of mortgages and selling the securities to investors, Freddie Mac shifts a major portion of the credit risk associated with the loans it owns to private investors – away from taxpayers.
The Wall Street Journal reported this week that Freddie Mac is providing financing for a portfolio of over 300 rental homes under a now-defunct pilot program intended to help address the shortage of homes for middle-class families. The close to $26 million pact with Atlanta-based Promise Homes provides financing for these 300 affordable rental homes.
Freddie Mac (FMCKL), closed Friday's trading session at $7.45, down 1.46%, on 33,700 volume with 25 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 66,456 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $4.45/$9.00.

Brilacidin completed a Phase 2b trial for Acute Bacterial Skin and Skin Structure Infection, or ABSSSI. Top-line data have shown a single dose of Brilacidin to deliver comparable clinical outcomes to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved seven-day dosing regimen of daptomycin.
The Company’s Psoriasis drug candidate is Prurisol. It completed a Phase 2 trial and Innovation launched a Phase 2b study. Prurisol is a small molecule. It acts via immune modulation and PRINS reduction.
This past December, Innovation Pharmaceuticals announced that the Company and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) completed an End-of-Phase 2 meeting regarding the continuing development of Brilacidin oral rinse to reduce the incidence of Severe Oral Mucositis (SOM) in Head and Neck Cancer (HNC) patients receiving chemoradiation. Brilacidin oral rinse is undergoing development under FDA Fast Track designation for Oral Mucositis (OM).
Both parties agreed to an acceptable Brilacidin Phase 3 development pathway. This includes studying Brilacidin oral rinse effects on SOM when cisplatin is administered in higher concentrations (80-100 mg/m2) every 21 days, and at lower concentrations (30-40 mg/m2) administered weekly as part of the chemoradiation regimen.
Recently, Innovation Pharmaceuticals announced plans to initiate this year a clinical trial of Brilacidin as an oral dosage form. Building upon the successful Phase 2 Proof-of-Concept (PoC) clinical trial for Ulcerative Proctitis/Ulcerative Proctosigmoiditis (UP/UPS), the goal of the program is to develop treatment for the more extensive forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), such as Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease.
Last week, Innovation Pharmaceuticals announced that the Companies Registration Office Ireland provided notification that Innovation’s subsidiary, IPIX Pharma Limited, is registered under the Companies Act 2014, effective February 15, 2019.

The Company works to improve Quality of Life (QoL) and lessen anxiety in residents with Alzheimer’s, Dementia, and isolation. Its concentration is on developing innovative digital QoL therapies for neurodegenerative diseases and oncology. Dthera Sciences’ lead product is ReminX (regarding Reminiscence Therapy for Anxiety Reduction). Dthera Sciences has its headquarters in San Diego, California.
ReminX is an artificial-intelligence (AI)-powered digital therapeutic. The design of ReminX is to lessen anxiety and improve QoL in patients with Alzheimer's disease and Dementia. ReminX has completed a successful clinical trial with the University of California San Diego showing its effectiveness as a scalable form of Reminiscence Therapy.
Reminiscence Therapy (RT) is talking about or reviewing recognizable memories. This is through looking at photos, and hearing or discussing the familiar stories related to them. ReminX is a digital therapeutic. It takes personalized stories and delivers a treatment called Reminiscence Therapy to ease stress.
Family members use the ReminX application (app) to upload photos and provide narration. Seniors pick up their ReminX tablet to watch stories from their own and their loved one’s lives. The patient’s custom tablet plays stories on demand. There is no interface for the patient to learn. Picking up the tablet starts stories. Putting the tablet down stops them. ReminX utilizes a digital assistant to help in curating content for an individual’s loved one. ReminX is available on IOS and Android.
Important developments for Dthera Sciences in 2017 included completing a proof-of-concept study for lead product, ReminX, at University of California San Diego. Study results in 14 patients suffering from dementia showed considerable decreases in anxiety, depression, and overall emotional distress. Moreover, the Company completed a successful beta test of its proprietary sales funnel, providing key proof points in support of achieving 2018 sales targets for ReminX.
Recently, Dthera Sciences announced the launch of ReminX™. This is an AI-powered consumer health product. The design of it is to digitally deliver Reminiscence Therapy to individuals suffering from Alzheimer's and other dementias, and also from social isolation. This digital therapeutic device is the first to center on the care of the elderly.
Mr. Edward Cox, Dthera Sciences’ Chief Executive Officer, said, "For the first time, hyper-personal Reminiscence Therapy can be delivered to thousands of individuals for a little over a dollar a day. This is a great example of compelling science and scalable technology being combined to make a major positive impact."
Last week, Dthera Sciences announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted Breakthrough Device designation to Dthera’s development-stage product, DTHR-ALZ. If granted approval, DTHR-ALZ would become the first non-pharmacological prescription treatment for the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease. The intention of DTHR-ALZ is to be a prescription digital therapeutic that will deliver Reminiscence Therapy to patients with Alzheimer's disease. The device will use AI to automatically optimize the therapy based on different forms of biofeedback from the patient.
The proposed indication for use states that "DTHR-ALZ is intended to mitigate the symptoms of agitation and depression associated with major neurocognitive disorder of the Alzheimer's type." To the Company's knowledge, Dthera is only the second digital therapeutics company to achieve Breakthrough Device designation from the FDA.

Nemaura Medical, Inc. (NMRD)
Market Exclusive, BusinessWire, Barchart, OTC Markets, InvestorsHub, Stockhouse, Simply Wall St, and 4-Traders reported on Nemaura Medical, Inc. (NMRD), and today we report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Nemaura Medical, Inc. is a medical technology business developing the wireless sugarBEAT® disposable adhesive skin-patch as a non-invasive, needle-free, pain-free, and affordable continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) system for adjunctive use by diabetics. The Company’s patient-friendly technology has the potential to transform health monitoring through providing real-time, tailored feedback on glucose, lactate, and other vital body performance metrics. Listed on the NasdaqCM, Nemaura Medical is headquartered in Loughborough, England.
Nemaura’s patented BEAT™ technology (passing a mild, non-perceptible electric current across the skin) draws a small number of selected molecules, such as glucose, into a patch placed on the skin. These molecules are drawn out of the interstitial fluid. The patch (via a sensor) measures the amount of that molecule present, converting it into a meaningful concentration value for clinical diagnosis or preliminary guidance for self-treatment.
The BEAT™ technology will permit remote continuous monitoring of chronic diseases and health conditions. It is to replace traditional invasive methods of diagnosis and healthcare observation procedures. The sugarBEAT® App can be pre-downloaded on a user’s smart device. There is an optional sugarBEAT® handheld reader (applicable where a user chooses not to use their own smart device).
sugarBEAT® provides accurate glucose measurement. sugarBEAT® consists of a reusable transmitter containing a daily-disposable adhesive skin-patch.
At the end of July, Nemaura Medical announced it started the first of several planned studies in support of a submission to the U.S Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for approval of its sugarBEAT® product. The Company further announced positive interim results from the home-use portion of this initial study.
The expectation is that the initial U.S. study will enroll 75 patients wearing the device over a 7-day period, including 3 days in a clinical setting (525 total patient days; 225 total in-clinic days). Initial U.S. study completion and FDA submission is anticipated in Q1 2019.
With its approved contract manufacturers, Nemaura Medical started manufacturing scale-up in preparation for expected launch in the United Kingdom (UK) in the coming months. The Company placed an initial order with a UK contract manufacturer for 12,500 sugarBEAT® rechargeable transmitters. These will be supplemented with about 100,000 skin-patches per month.
Nemaura Medical, Inc. (NMRD), closed Friday's trading session at $1.08, up 4.85%, on 100,987 volume with 133 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 149,368 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.80/$5.46.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF)
The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF) was highlighted today in a publication looking at some of the top plays in the cannabis market.
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.

“The opportunity to expand to the rest of this new building over the course of the next six to 12 months ensures we won’t have to move again anytime soon,” Sharing Services Inc. Chairman Robert Oblon said. “We are on track for very significant growth here in the U.S., as well as upcoming international expansion, so this move is in preparation for what’s in front of us.”

“The enthusiasm of our attendees and the early success that we are experiencing is incredible considering our growth has been 100 percent organic, with almost no marketing from the company,” Oblon said. “I’m speechless by the dedication of our Elepreneur leaders and their entire teams, as they share our incredible line of products that have helped so many people.”
Sharing Services and its management team plan to travel the U.S. to hold several mini conferences to expand on the messages presented at its Happiness Convention that focus on helping people become “healthier, happier and wealthier.” Details of the company’s aggressive global expansion initiatives are soon to be announced, Oblon said.

Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD)
Black Iron (TSX: BKI) (OTC: BKIRF) (GR: BIN), a Canadian iron-ore exploration and development company, holds an ideal position amid recent supply shortages and the subsequent tension in the global iron ore market. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/02iY0.

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.
Sugarmade has also completed a master market agreement with industry leader BizRight Hydroponics, Inc., a leading marketer and manufacturer of cannabis and hydroponic growth supplies, which offers a range of hydroponics-related products including: HPS grow lights, electronic ballasts, HPS bulbs, nutrient mixes, environmental control products, pH measurement and calibration solutions and storage products.

This business unit currently serves 2,000 quick service restaurants, garnering from 30-40 percent of the market share. Sugarmade plans to expand operations via the addition of market share and the introduction of new product offerings.
CEO Jimmy Chan is an experienced business executive instrumental in growing multiple business operations with a strong expertise in international trade and banking, and international manufacturing and importation. He is also the founder of CarryOutSupplies.com, a company that revolutionized the custom-printed paper supplies subsector of the quick service restaurant industry, which merged with Sugarmade in 2014.

SinglePoint, Inc. (SING)
SinglePoint, Inc. (SING) CEO Greg Lambrecht was featured today on MoneyTV with Donald Baillargeon, where he announced a major acquisition.
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.

Therma Bright, Inc. (TSX.V: THRM) (OTC: THRBF)
Therma Bright (TSX.V: THRM) (OTC: THRBF) is focused on protecting the human body’s largest and fastest-growing organ, skin, which is a vital guard against damage to all other organs. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/lMs6K.
Therma Bright, Inc. (TSX.V: THRM) (OTC: THRBF) is a medical device technology provider focused on addressing dermatological needs in the multi-billion-dollar cosmeceutical industry. The company’s effective, non-invasive and pain-free skin care is based on proprietary technology which has received Class II medical device status from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Therma Bright’s portfolio includes products, devices and treatments that have both cosmetic and medicinal or therapeutic benefits, such as for relief of pain, itch and inflammation resulting from more than 20,000 types of insect and marine life bites and stings, including bees, wasps, hornets, mosquitos, black flies and jellyfish.
The Company’s current focus is to market its products online through various social media networks, and to eventually re-establish relationships with major North American and Global retailers.
The company currently has two products on the market and another in the research and development phase:
InterceptCS™ is a thermal therapy device for the treatment and prevention of cold sores caused by the herpes simplex Type 1 virus*. Symptoms typically include sores around the mouth and lips which InterceptCS™ treats by application of controlled topical heat with no risk of burning the skin. When used at the first sign of an oncoming cold sore application of InterceptCS™ can prevent symptoms from developing. Infrared energy and light from the device penetrate the skin killing cells infected with the virus.
InterceptCS™ is available without prescription and comprises a battery powered ergonomic hand-held unit and a disposable single-use treatment activator. Therma Bright has completed prototyping of multi-use activators for InterceptCS™. The company plans to bring to market 5, 10 or 20 multi-use activations at prices that will offer customers greater value than the current single-use activator.
The other Therma Bright product currently under development is TherOZap™, a next generation thermal therapy device powered by the company’s core technology, which is approved by the FDA as a Class II medical device for the relief of the symptoms of insect bites. Therma Bright is testing a new easier-to-use prototype of the device for effectiveness against Zika virus and other diseases carried by mosquitos. Once the technology proves effective, Therma Bright intends to seek regulatory approvals and extend the prototype enhancements to a new commercial version of TherOZap™.
Therma Bright is also conducting research and development on a unique thermal therapy device that would incorporate medical grade cannabis or cannabidiol (“CDB”) sourced from hemp as a cream or gel to provide relief of back, knee and other joint pain. In preparation, the company has incorporated a wholly owned subsidiary to hold any technology for use or application of cannabis. Once approvals are secured, the company plans to sell the device through licensed cannabis producers or retailers across Canada and in international markets where use of cannabis has been legalized. The company has initiated trademark and patent protection for its thermal therapy technology incorporating medical cannabis. Therma Bright has indicated it will seek an acquisition to help further development of this product.
A report by market intelligence firm Mordor Intelligence put the global cosmeceuticals market at a value of nearly US$47 billion in 2017 and projects it to be worth more than $80 billion by 2023, growing at a rate of almost 9.5 percent annually. Medical research estimates that somewhere between 20 percent and 40 percent of the population suffer occasional cold sore outbreaks. In Canada those figures would mean five to 10 million people, and in the U.S. some 40 million to 80 million, with recurring cold sores, representing a substantial potential market for Therma Bright.
Rob Fia serves as Therma Bright chairman and CEO. Fia has extensive contacts in the investment community and the financial sector as well as knowledge of various Canadian stock exchange listing processes and requirements. His 18 years in the investment business has included equity research and advising promising early stage companies on corporate finance. Therma Bright CFO Victor Hugo is a senior financial analyst at Marrelli Support Services Inc., for which he provides CFO, accounting, regulatory compliance, and management advisory services to companies listed on the TSX, TSX Venture Exchange and other Canadian and US exchanges.
**Based on double blind placebo study, the InterceptCS™ is approved by Health Canada for the claim “For prevention of cold sores when used within 3 hours of the onset of the prodrome.” The InterceptCS™ is not approved by the United States FDA or any claim of clinical indication, clinical efficacy, and/or cure or prevention of disease.
Therma Bright, Inc. (OTC: THRBF), closed the day's trading session at $0.0278, even for the day, on 26,000 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 6,571 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0098/$0.0289.

Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX.V: FIRE) (OTC: SPRWF)
The Supreme Cannabis Company, Inc. (TSX: FIRE) (OTCQX: SPRWF) (FRA: 53S1) today announced that the Company has appointed Mr. Nikhil Handa as the Company's new Chief Financial Officer. Current Chief Financial Officer, Dimitre Naoumov, will become the Company's Vice President, Finance. Also today, CannabisNewsWire released a report on the company detailing how SPRWF continues to build on its reputation as a global organization that produces and distributes consumer-centric, proprietary cannabis plant products. The company’s mission, aptly stated in an investor presentation (http://cnw.fm/94G9y), is to “make a positive impact on people and the planet by continuing to grow better cannabis businesses globally.” Additionally, SPRWF was featured today in the 420 with CNW by CannabisNewsWire.
Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX.V: FIRE) (OTC: SPRWF), is committed to providing premium brands and products that reflect the company’s knowledgeable customers, passionate employees, and culture of innovation. Supreme Cannabis’ mission is to grow the world’s best cannabis and become a leader in the global industry. The company calls its Toronto Venture Exchange stock symbol FIRE “a testament to our passion for cannabis and our obsession with quality.”
Supreme Cannabis believes the world is ready to follow Canada’s lead by ending the 100-year cannabis prohibition and, as Canada’s only coast-to-coast premium cannabis producer, the company sees itself at the center of this global shift.
In August 2018, Supreme Cannabis uplisted its shares to the to OTCQX market in the U.S., where the company trades under the ticker symbol SPRWF. The following month Supreme reported record Q4 revenues of CAD$3.55 million, a 71-percent increase over the previous quarter. Supreme Cannabis also recorded revenue of CAD$8.85 million for its fiscal year ended June 30, 2018, placing it among publicly traded Canadian cannabis companies with the highest reported revenue in their first four quarters of sales.
“As a result of the successful execution of our strategy, we have generated significant revenue growth both for the quarter and the year-end period,” Supreme Cannabis CEO Navdeep Dhaliwal stated in a news release. “We look forward to building on this growth as we expand domestically and internationally.”
The company’s growth strategy includes key industry agreements, such as its CAD$12 million supply agreement with Tilray Inc. (OTC: TLRY), a global leader in cannabis research, cultivation, processing and distribution. The agreement calls for Supreme to supply Tilray with dried cannabis for support of medical cannabis patients in Canada for the period of one year.
Another key component is the company’s wholly owned 7ACRES subsidiary. The 7ACRES cultivation facility, one of the first 40 federally licensed cannabis producers in Canada, is focused on building a core competency in scaled cannabis production, which will give 7ACRES the needed flexibility to maintain leadership in the industry as the Canadian market grows and matures. Though 7ACRES is Supreme Cannabis’ flagship brand and only currently operating business unit, the company will continue to identify new opportunities to grow its portfolio of companies and build innovative cannabis businesses throughout the world.
7ACRES operates from a 342,000-square-foot cultivation facility in Kincardine, Ontario, and has been federally licensed since 2016. Current capacity is 13,333 kilograms dried cannabis annually, with plans to ramp up production by mid-2019 to a rate of 50,000 kilograms per year.
Supreme Cannabis seeks to differentiate 7ACRES from other licensed cannabis producers by producing premium quality product sustainably at scale. “Craft quality, commercial scale” is a slogan the company uses, and the Kincardine greenhouse employs state-of-the-art technology and cultivation best practices to strive toward that goal. Supreme identifies the quality of the 7ACRES product as the company’s primary strength and says a shared “passion for the plant” is the driver of company culture. Six Canadian provinces have signed supply agreements with Supreme, a fact the company credits to the high quality of 7ACRES cannabis.
Its customers, Supreme Cannabis management says, are informed and discerning regarding cannabis, and they value a premium brand that respects their product knowledge.

Black Iron Inc. (TSX: BKI) (OTC: BKIRF) (GR: BIN)
Black Iron (TSX: BKI) (OTC: BKIRF) (GR: BIN), a Canadian iron-ore exploration and development company, holds an ideal position amid recent supply shortages and the subsequent tension in the global iron ore market. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/02iY0.
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.

Pacific Rim Cobalt Corp. (CSE: BOLT) (OTCQB: PCRCF) (XFRA: NXFE)
NetworkNewsAudio announces the Audio Press Release (APR) titled "Growing Demand for Nickel for Batteries Drives Increased Investments in Indonesian Nickel Sector," featuring Pacific Rim Cobalt Corporation (OTCQB: PCRCF) (CSE: BOLT). To hear the NetworkNewsAudio version, visit: http://nnw.fm/Io88C. To read the full editorial, visit: http://nnw.fm/W474y.
Pacific Rim Cobalt Corp. (CSE: BOLT) (OTCQB: PCRCF) (XFRA: NXFE) is a Canada-based exploration company focused on the acquisition and development of production-grade cobalt deposits, a key raw material input for the growing lithium-ion battery industry.
Pacific Rim Cobalt and its Cyclops Nickel-Cobalt Project, located in the Depapre District, Jayapura Regency, Papua Province, Republic of Indonesia, is uniquely positioned in a region with potentially the largest source of cobalt outside of Africa. Strategically located near China, the world’s largest cobalt buyer, the Cyclops Project is a laterite (iron-hosted) mineral prospect, rich in cobalt and nickel. Cobalt consumption in China is on-track to use over 8,000 tonnes of cobalt annually by 2021 for electric vehicle production alone and is projected to remain the world’s largest cobalt consumer for many years to come.
Global demand for renewable power is fueling a massive shift from traditional energy supply chain economics to cobalt-reliant lithium-ion batteries, the world’s most widely used power source for portable applications such as electric vehicles and other high-tech applications.
Pacific Rim Cobalt management has concluded that strategic access to major markets offers the most important factor to servicing the rising demand for cobalt. The company’s acquisition of its initial asset in Indonesia offers near surface, strong nickel-cobalt mineralization in an area with excellent infrastructure including a nearby workforce, supplies, sealed roads, ocean access, nearby port facility and gentle topography. The project area, nestled on the north coast of Papua, Indonesia, establishes Pacific Rim Cobalt well within the economically attractive ocean-going transportation range to Asia and its lucrative, growing industrial markets.
Exploration efforts are currently focused on establishing a maiden compliant resource for the Cyclops project, both in historically identified and drill-tested prospects as well as previously unexplored areas of the claims. During the first nine months of 2018, the company focused on assembling the necessary agreements to access northern areas of the project hosting historically identified mineralized zones. Mapping, sampling and a mini-bulk sample within the mineralized zones has been completed, along with a small-scale program in the previously unexplored far southern area of the project. With surface access to priority targets now established, Pacific Rim Cobalt will initiate drilling and extract additional mini-bulk samples for further metallurgical testing.
“We are excited and optimistic about the unique possibility of developing this project into an asset that will add shareholder value and position the company to play a future role in the battery metals supply chain,” Pacific Rim Cobalt CEO Ranjeet Sundher recently stated (http://nnw.fm/u1HNs). “We expect the near-surface nature of cobalt/nickel mineralization at the Cyclops project will lend itself well to low-cost, logistically straightforward drilling. We thus anticipate the opportunity to undertake a resource calculation study, as well as ongoing metallurgy and process option testing, will present itself in the near future. It’s going to be a busy year ahead, and we look forward to getting the drills turning and building value.”
Pacific Rim Cobalt’s world-class management team includes Sundher, who has over 20 years of capital markets experience. Sundher is also president of Canrim Ventures Ltd., a Singaporean advisory firm specializing in early stage project finance and structure. He previously founded Indogold Exploration, a Jakarta-based mining service firm, and has raised over $40 million for companies in which he was a founder/partner.
Chief Financial Officer Steve Vanry has 25 years of professional experience in senior management positions with public and private natural resources companies, providing expertise in capital markets corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions, regulatory compliance, accounting and financial reporting.
Andre Talaska serves as country manager and technical supervisor. He has over 30 years of experience in the mining and exploration industry and has held senior positions with several companies in Australia and southeast Asia. Shakir Juffry, business development/engineering, is a chemical engineer and extractive metallurgist by background training who has over 20 years of experience in the Indonesian mining and minerals exploration field. Toto Suarto Sajali, operation and development manager, is a mining engineer with over 15 years of experience in Indonesian project assessment, development and operations.
Pacific Rim Cobalt Corp. (OTCQB: PCRCF), closed the day's trading session at $0.1403, off by 18.67%, on 141,239 volume with 29 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 25,437 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0701/$0.568.
