Oroplata Resources, Inc., through its subsidiaries, engages in the exploration and development of lithium and other minerals. LithiumOre Corp. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Oroplata Resources. Oroplata engages in the development of lithium brine deposits in Nevada. OTCQB-listed, Oroplata Resources is headquartered in Incline Village, Nevada.
Earlier this month, Oroplata Resources announced its intention to change its corporate name to American Battery Metals Corporation. Mr. Doug Cole, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Oroplata Resources, said, "The Company has completed the first step in the requirements necessary to change its name to American Battery Metals Corporation. The Company expects to satisfy the remaining legal and regulatory requirements necessary to officially change the name in the next sixty days."
The LithiumOre subsidiary is a lithium resource exploration and development company. LithiumOre’s main concentration is the establishment of a low-cost production base to supply the fast-developing lithium-ion battery industry for mobile devices and laptops, and the accelerating EV (electronic vehicle) industry. LithiumOre holds 1,300 accepted lithium mineral claims, totaling 26,000 acres, situated in Railroad Valley of Nye County, Nevada.
LithiumOre has a strategic partnership with 3PL Operating, Inc. for the exploration of the Company's Western Nevada Basin lithium brine project in Railroad Valley. 3PL has considerable experience in the drilling, development and production of oil and gas that is alike to lithium development since the metal is contained in liquid brines and produced from shallow wells. 3PL will drill on the Railroad Valley to attain brine samples and evaluate lithium concentrations at the Western Nevada Basin project.
LithiumOre has its Battery Metals Extraction Division. Its new Battery Metals Extraction Division will be on its present land holdings and close to its Railroad Valley Lithium Project. This Division will extract battery metals from its 26,000 acres land holdings in Nevada. Furthermore, it will market its extraction technology as a service to other neighboring mining companies and markets for purchase across the nation.
LithiumOre, the wholly-owned subsidiary of Oroplata Resources, has set a date to drill their first exploratory and production well in Railroad Valley, Nevada. It will start drilling April 8, 2019, weather permitting. This marks an important milestone towards the Company’s major goals for this calendar year. LithiumOre's drilling contractor is Welsco Corp. The lead drill manager will be Mr. George Scheid. At present, Mr. Scheid serves as Senior Driller Project Manager at Teton Energy Services.
This week, LithiumOre reported that in addition to its estimated amounts of lithium, its brine pool contains large commercial quantities of soda ash and potash. These findings significantly increase its commercial outlook. LithiumOre's early scientific studies suggest that Railroad valley brines may contain numerous minerals along with sulfates and carbonates (considered as valuable anions versus chlorides), amounting to significant 35-37 weight percentage solids.

(LRTTF), and today we choose to report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Liberty One Lithium Corp. is an emerging exploration company that centers on the acquisition and development of high grade lithium brine deposits. The Company sees lithium as an opportunity to participate in the diversification and continued growth (and protection) of a robust global energy policy. The Company formerly went by the name Peace River Capital Corp. It changed its corporate name to Liberty One Lithium Corp. in December of 2016. Liberty One Lithium has its head office in Vancouver, British Columbia.
The Company’s initial prospects are in Argentina’s “Lithium Triangle” and Utah’s Paradox Basin. They are in historic sources of high grade lithium-bearing brines. Historic resource indicates potential to produce large volumes of brine on-site.
In Utah, its North Paradox property consists of 233 placer claims encompassing 4,480 acres located upon the Paradox Basin in Grand County, Utah, 15 kilometers west of the town of Moab, in southeastern Utah. Liberty One Lithium has a mineral option and joint venture (JV) agreement with Millennial Lithium Corp. (Vancouver, British Columbia). The agreement grants Liberty One Lithium the sole and exclusive right and option to acquire up to an 80 percent undivided beneficial right, title, and interest in the Pocitos West project in Argentina.
In Argentina, the Company’s Pocitos West prospect consists of more than 39,000 acres (15,857 Ha) in the middle of the well-known lithium triangle. It is in the Pocitos Salar, Los Andes Department, Western Salta Province, Argentina. The Project is in the middle of all the current lithium Projects of the area.
This past December, Liberty One Lithium provided a 2018 Summary and Outlook for 2019 activities. The Company maintains an excellent cash position with roughly $8.2 million in cash and equivalents as noted in its previous Q3 financial filings. In addition, based on the current market assessment undertaken by the Management and Board of Directors of Liberty One Lithium, it was determined that in the interest of fiscal responsibility the Company decided to cut its relationship with the Utah-based North Paradox property. Future investment in this project has been reasoned counter-productive to the present goals of Liberty One Lithium. Therefore, this means additional capital for strategic acquisition purposes.

(SHMP), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
NaturalShrimp, Inc. is an international leader in aquaculture technology. The OTCQB-listed Company has developed and tested the first commercially-viable system for growing shrimp indoors. This system uses a proprietary technology to reliably produce healthy, naturally-grown shrimp weekly without the use of antibiotics or toxic chemicals. NaturalShrimp has developed a technology to produce fresh, gourmet-grade shrimp dependably and economically in an indoor, re-circulating, saltwater facility.
NaturalShrimp is headquartered in Dallas, Texas. The Company’s production facility is outside of San Antonio, Texas. NaturalShrimp, Inc. owns 100 percent of NaturalShrimp Corporation, established to operate in the United States and Canada, and 100 percent of NaturalShrimp Global, Inc., established to form International Joint Venture (JV) Partnerships.
NaturalShrimp operates a closed-system saltwater aquaculture facility. This facility produces high-grade Pacific White shrimp. It accomplishes this without using the antibiotics and chemical additives today’s shrimp farms require. The technology causes ammonia (NH3) to break down into risk-free nitrogen and hydrogen gas. As a result, this eliminates one of the historically most demanding problems in shrimp aquaculture.
NaturalShrimp’s eco-friendly, bio-secure design does not depend on ocean water. It recreates the natural ocean environment allowing for high-density production, which can undergo replication anywhere worldwide. The NaturalShrimp Automated Monitoring and Control system utilizes individual tank monitors to automatically control the feeding, oxygenation, and the temperature of each of the facility tanks independently. In addition, a facility computer, running custom software, communicates with each of the controllers and performs more data acquisition functions that can report back to a supervisory computer from anywhere globally.
NaturalShrimp has installed an enhanced version of its vibrio suppression technology system at the La Coste, Texas production facility. The design of the Company's vibrio suppression technology is to create higher sustainable shrimp population densities, consistent production, improved growth, higher survival rates, and first-rate food conversion in an all-natural ocean-type environment.
This past January, NaturalShrimp announced that NaturalShrimp and F&T Water Solutions, LLC received U.S. Patent No. 10,163,199 B2 for the Recirculating Aquaculture System and Treatment Method for Aquatic Species developed for the first commercially viable system for growing aquatic species indoors.

In February, NaturalShrimp announced that it completed testing its patented technology to grow shrimp indoors with Shrimp Lot 180. Mr. Bill G. Williams, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “The method worked extremely well and maintained the water control parameters within acceptable limits through the grow-out period.”

Propanc Biopharma, Inc. (PPCB)
MicroCapDaily, OTC Markets, Marketbeat, Wallet Investor, Insider Financial, Stockhouse, Morningstar, InvestorsHub, 4-Traders, The Street, Stockopedia, Investing News, Real Investment Advice, Dividend Investor, and Market Screener reported on Propanc Biopharma, Inc. (PPCB), and today we choose to report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Propanc Biopharma, Inc. is a clinical stage Biopharmaceutical Company headquartered in Australia. It concentrates on the development of new and proprietary treatments for cancer patients suffering from solid tumors such as pancreatic, ovarian, and colorectal cancers. The Company has developed a formulation of anti-cancer compounds, which exert manifold effects designed to control or prevent tumors from recurring and spreading throughout the body. Propanc Biopharma lists on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB.
Propanc is developing a long-term therapy based on a pancreatic proenzyme formulation to prevent tumour recurrence and metastasis. The Company’s lead product is PRP. This is a novel, patented, formulation comprising two proenzymes mixed in a synergetic ratio. PRP is a solution for once daily intravenous administration of a combination of two pancreatic proenzymes, trypsinogen and chymotrypsinogen, for the treatment of pancreatic cancer.
Propanc Biopharma has received Orphan Drug Designation (ODD) from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the use of PRP. The approved indication is one of the most lethal malignancies with a median survival of 6 months and a 5-year survival rate of less than 5 percent.
The Company (after extensive laboratory research and a limited amount of human testing) has evidence that PRP reduce cancer cell growth via promotion of cell differentiation; enhances cell adhesion and may suppress metastasis progression; and has no serious side effects and improves patient survival.
Development progress for PRP includes successful completion of a GLP-compliant, 28-day repeat-dose toxicity study with no toxicological findings after administration. This indicates a broad safety margin. It provides adequate data to support a safe starting dose for First-In-Human studies.
In addition, the FDA granted Orphan Drug Designation status to PRP for the treatment of pancreatic cancer. Furthermore, a manufacturing process capable of purifying and stabilizing two active drug substances of the PRP formulation, trypsinogen and chymotrypsinogen were successfully developed.
Recently, Propanc Biopharma announced that it entered national phase for two of its key patent applications from its intellectual property (IP) portfolio. The first patent application, which entered national phase in July, describes a method to eradicate cancer stem cells, and a second patent application, covering proenzyme compositions for the treatment of solid tumors, recently completed national phase entry in mid-July.
Propanc Biopharma filed the patent applications in all major international jurisdictions including the United States and Europe. It also filed the patent applications in key jurisdictions in Asia and South America. Both cover its lead product candidate, PRP, or use as an anti-cancer stem cell therapy that is set to enter clinical development.
Propanc Biopharma, Inc. (PPCB), closed Wednesday's trading session at $0.0125, up 5.04%, on 1,292,235 volume with 50 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 5,085,978 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.007/$0.0179.

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.

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.

Millennial Lithium Corp. (TSX.V: ML) (FSE: A3N2) (OTC: MLNLF)
Millennial Lithium Corp. (TSX.V: ML) (FSE: A3N2) (OTC: MLNLF) ("Millennial" or the "Company") is pleased to report encouraging results from a short-term pumping test of a third production-scale well at its Pastos Grandes Project in Salta, Argentina. Pumping well PGPW18-17 was installed as a future production well, and meanwhile to undertake short-term pumping of lithium brine to determine aquifer parameters and chemical variation during a 72-hour period in March, 2019.
Millennial Lithium Corp. (TSX.V: ML) (FSE: A3N2) (OTC: MLNLF) is engaged in the development of the Pastos Grandes lithium project in Salta Province, Argentina. The company’s Pastos Grandes project totals approximately 10,000 hectares located in geopolitically stable, mining-friendly jurisdictions. The company also enjoys a solid strategic partnership with GCL, a Chinese solar giant that has become Millennial Lithium’s lead investor with approximately $30 million investment to date.
Millennial Lithium’s compelling valuation places it with a $123 million market cap, third only to Lithium Americas and Orocobre in the region. The company holds a strong cash position of C$40 million and is pursuing a strategic plan moving forward in 2019 that includes an updated NI 43-101 resource report and a full bankable feasibility study, including supporting evaporation ponds and pilot processing plant.
Argentina currently produces 17 percent of the world’s lithium supply. Lithium is at the cornerstone of a quiet industrial revolution as it brings together energy, automotive and technologies companies to foster a lasting move away from carbon-based resources. Lithium demand is expected to grow at an annual rate of 22 percent through 2025 with increased demands for lithium-ion batteries used in electric vehicles and battery-based energy storage leading the way.
Millennial Lithium has a world-class lithium brine asset strategically located in the heart of the Argentinean portion of the South American “Lithium Triangle.”
The company’s flagship lithium brine project, Pastos Grandes, is following a two-year timeline to production as a result of some of the best infrastructure in the Lithium Triangle. Located 231 km from the city of Salta at an elevation of 3,800 meters, Pastos Grandes is accessible year-round with all-weather access to paved highways, power and natural gas. Based on proven technology, brine extraction, solar evaporation and conventional lithium brine processing, Millennial Lithium’s preliminary economic assessment (PEA) of the Pastos Grandes project, completed by international engineering firm WorleyParsons, estimates a mine life of 25 years with a three-year ramp up to 25,000 tonnes per year of Lithium-Carbonate. A 3 tonne-per-month lithium carbonate pilot plant is currently being built for use at the site.
To date, 23 exploration wells are completed with $40 million spent in development. A revised Resource Estimate is planned for Q1 2019. Four pumping wells are also to be completed in Q1 2019 with two water wells currently being drilled in support of the ongoing Feasibility Study, also being completed by WorleyParsons. Infrastructure buildup is underway, including completion of a 40-man camp, hybrid solar-diesel power system, pilot plant and laboratory with ICP unit for rapid sample assays and a liming plant for treating concentrated brines form the pilot ponds. Millennial Lithium is also constructing a Pastos Grandes community center/warehouse and all-purpose building that is central to building community relations with local residents.
Encouraging results from an extended pumping test of a second production-scale well at the Pastos Grandes project revealed that at a pumping rate of 15 liters/second (L/s), the lithium content remained consistent over the 23-day trial period with a drawdown of approximately 57 meters with rapid recovery. Estimated transmissivity (the rate at which the brine moves through the aquifer) is 40 square meters per day, demonstrating the aquifer’s strong potential to sustain a long-term pumping rate of 15 L/s.
Brine sampling completed daily during the pumping test over the 23-day period revealed the chemistry is consistent with lithium ranging from 482 mg/L and 518 mg/L, averaging 495 mg/L. The best lithium values occurred during the last five days of the pumping test. The magnesium to lithium (Mg/Li) ratio averages 5.3 and the average potassium to lithium ratio (K/Li) is 10.5 and the average sulphate to lithium ratio (SO4/Li) is 16.4. Sampling was conducted in accordance with CIM guidelines for brine resource evaluation, with an appropriate chain of custody and QA/QC program in place for ensuring veracity, accuracy and precision of the analytical results.
Millennial Lithium’s highly prospective lithium assets and strategies are bolstered by a world class management and board with extensive experience in lithium and large development projects.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP)
Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (OTCQX: LXRP) (CSE: LXX) (the "Company" or "Lexaria"), a drug delivery platform innovator, announces that work has commenced on its largest-ever cannabinoid research program, which will also test Lexaria-designed nanotech enhancements. This new program is comprised of 11 separate animal studies, each of which is comparable in scope to individual animal studies conducted by the Company during 2018.
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 $1.27, up 4.96%, on 164,985 volume with 151 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 173,795 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.75/$2.43.

Phivida Holdings Inc. (CSE: VIDA) (OTC: PHVAF)
Phivida Holdings Inc. (CSE: VIDA OTCQX: PHVAF) ("Phivida" or the "Company"), today has entered into a strategic partnership with Green Glass Global, a leading beverage brokerage firm specializing in on premise national accounts for the specialty drinks sector. The partnership will focus on placing Phivida's Oki beverages in premium hospitality outlets across the U.S. Also today, CannabisNewsWire released a report highlighting the company which examines the recent news that corporate interest in building a cannabis-infused beverage profile demonstrates the level of potential growth for such an industry, with key developments being made across multiple channels. To address the needs of the wellness-oriented consumer, Phivida Holdings has created a line of active hemp extract (CBD)-infused drinks that are just starting to hit store shelves and is expected to be distributed to a thousand retail outlets in Q2.
Headquartered in Vancouver, Canada, with operations in San Diego, Calif., Phivida Holdings Inc. (CSE: VIDA) (OTC: PHVAF) is a premium food and beverage company that focuses on whole plant nutrition and natural ingredients that help best maintain overall health and balance in the human body. The company infuses active hemp into a variety of premium foods, beverages and supplements and is poised for global distribution. Phivida is guided by a team of Fortune 500-caliber executives focused on a new strategic portfolio of products and brands, comprehensive consumer research, new product and brand development, improved visual identity and packaging design, and a strong distribution strategy.
The company’s mission is to become a leader in whole plant solutions by providing holistic remedies for a more natural alternative to pharmaceuticals and by guiding people toward a healthy lifestyle. Phivida embraces and celebrates a return to organic, natural, plant-based foods and beverages and a focus on holistic health and wellness.
Publicly traded on the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE: VIDA) and the OTCQX Best Market in the U.S. (OTC: PHVAF), the company’s strong balance sheet carries CAD$13 million with no debt or loans with ~60 million shares outstanding, and the company is now well-capitalized to fund major mainstream distribution with a solid structure that is poised for long-term growth.
Phivida’s management team includes president and CEO Jim Bailey, former president of Red Bull Canada and global chief marketing officer for Merrell Outdoors; Chief Marketing Officer Michael Cornwell, former chief marketing officer for Samsung New Zealand and the former director of marketing for Red Bull Canada; and Doug Campbell, former director of sales for Red Bull North America, who, as Phivida’s chief commercial officer, is tasked with driving new sales revenue growth.
Using encapsulation technology, Phivida uses full spectrum CBD-hemp oil (rich in naturally occurring phytocannabinoids) converted into a water-soluble delivery format, which enhances delivery and absorption of the cannabinoids into the human body – up to an estimated tenfold.
The whole plant hemp extract is infused into functional beverages, food and supplements to target a range of health and wellness conditions. Phivida strives to lead the industry in product quality through high-quality ingredients and best-in-class testing. The Company has partnered with Flora Labs to test and ensure consistency and potency of all products. Flora Labs is a world-class testing lab with stringent QA and QC quality assessment protocols and will provide Phivida with ongoing impartial quality testing.
Federally legal under the 2014 Farm Bill, CBD from hemp oil is a rapid growth market across the U.S. When derived from marijuana, CBD remains a schedule 1 controlled substance, giving hemp-derived CBD oil-infused products a competitive advantage on regulations. On June 28, 2018, the U.S. Senate passed the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (i.e. the “Farm Bill), lifting the U.S. Industrial Hemp laws to an agricultural commodity status and effectively removing hemp from the controlled substance list.
Earlier this year, another milestone court ruling also provided significant regulatory support for the U.S. CBD-hemp sector. In February 2018, the Supreme Court presided over the HIA (Hemp Industry Association) vs. DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) in a class-action suit concerning the issue of CBD extracted from hemp and the legality of industrial hemp. In the final ruling, the Supreme Court unequivocally determined that hemp (and its derivatives), when produced domestically under the Farm Bill, are not a controlled substance.
The Supreme Court ruling also found the Farm Bill (as it relates to hemp) “pre-empts” the Controlled Substances Act. Congress has since exempted Farm Bill hemp from the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), giving the Farm Bill primary jurisdiction over the governance of the CBD-hemp oil industry in the U.S.
The DEA further conceded it does not “seek to control cannabinoids” and that only marijuana-derived cannabinoids are governed under the Controlled Substances Act. In May of 2018, the DEA issued a formal directive to all federal agencies (e.g., U.S. Customs and Border Patrol) stating that cannabinoids are not controlled substances unless derived from marijuana, and that the “mere presence of cannabinoids” in any product or derivative does not render it a controlled substance. The Supreme Court ruling also resulted in the mediation of a settlement in what is now the third successful HIA vs. DEA suit in over a decade.
In Canada, the Senate approval of Bill C-45 legalized the production, distribution and use of recreational cannabis, with edibles to be added in 2019. The bill officially became law as of Oct. 17, 2018, creating a legal framework for the production, distribution, sale and possession of cannabis across Canada including cannabinoid-infused beverages.

Marijuana Company of America Inc. (MCOA)
Marijuana Company of America Inc. (MCOA), an innovative hemp and cannabis corporation, is pleased to announce that MCOA has entered into a letter of intent (LOI) with Natural Plant Extract of California (NPE) and its subsidiary, Northern Lights Distribution, LLC (NLD), to acquire a 20% ownership interest in NPE, and to establish a Joint Venture (JV) to operate a California cannabis delivery service named Viva Buds. Also today, the company was highlighted in an article examining how, according to a new note published by an industry investment firm, the total cannabis market could generate as much as $75 billion in gross annual sales by 2030, up from a previous forecast of $50 billion by 2026. Additionally, the company was featured in today’s Venture Breakfast Bits, by 24/7 Market News. Full press release.
Marijuana Company of America Inc. (OTC: MCOA) (the “Company”) are pioneers in the cannabis industry going back to 2009 when Don Steinberg, MCOA’s CEO, founded the first marijuana company ever to trade on a U.S. stock market, Medical Marijuana Inc. Since then, Don and his partner, Charlie Larsen, have formed Global Hemp Group and Marijuana Company of America. They have experienced the shift of legislation first hand, not only for the legalization of marijuana but also the emerging hemp-based CBD products.
The CBD market is growing exponentially and consequently the founders of MCOA have constructed their business model around the development of industrial hemp-based CBD products. The industrial hemp plant can be used to produce products that are carbon neutral or even carbon negative. It is one of the longest, strongest natural fibers on earth, used as a building material that is free of mold, pesticide-resistant, and fire proof. Hemp has also been described as a “super food,” which provides additional business opportunities. No part of the plant is left unused and the Company’s overall strategy is to take advantage of every profit center from farm to the multiple valuable finished products.
The cannabis and hemp industries are experiencing unprecedented growth that is expected to continue for many years as these industries are now accepted globally and continue to mature and expand. North American consumers spent $6.7 billion on legal cannabis products in 2016, up 34% from 2015’s $5 billion. This trend is widely expected to explode at a 27% compounded annual growth rate to reach $22.6 billion by 2021, according to ArcView Market Research.
The company offers investors the opportunity to be on the forefront of cannabis and hemp innovation through cultivation, processing in the legal cannabis and industrial hemp sectors. The Company’s business model includes producing a diverse portfolio of synergistic business segments that provide value to its shareholders. Its vertically integrated business model and distribution platforms are positioned to capture market share by developing recognizable and valuable brands.
Under the MCOA umbrella, wholly owned subsidiary hempSMART™, Inc. is committed to bringing high quality CBD-based products to the market through its affiliate marketing program.

Also today, the company was highlighted in an article looking at potential breakout plays, what with cannabis so much in the news and investors becoming more and more hungry for the next big winner in the industry. Additionally, TGODF was highlighted in an article examining the potential future revenues for the cannabis global 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.

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.

Standard Lithium Ltd. (TSX.V: SLL) (FRA: S5L) (OTC: STLHF)
Standard Lithium Ltd. (TSXV: SLL) (OTCQX: STLHF) (FRA: S5L), is pleased to announce that it has engaged Advisian, the consulting arm of WorleyParsons Canada Services Ltd (WorleyParsons) to complete a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) of its flagship 150,000 acre project in the south-central region of Arkansas, USA.
Standard Lithium Ltd. (OTC: STLHF) is focused on unlocking the value of existing large-scale U.S.-based lithium brine resources that can quickly be brought into production. The Company believes new lithium production can rapidly be brought on stream by minimizing project risks at selection stage; resource, political & geographic, and regulatory & permitting; and by leveraging advances in lithium extraction technologies and processes.
The Company’s flagship project is in southern Arkansas. The more than 180,000-acre “Smackover Project” is in the most prolific and productive brine processing region in North America. Agreements with large commercial brine operators in the region will allow Standard Lithium to utilize the extensive existing infrastructure, including brine supply and disposal pipelines, water, power and a trained workforce to fast-track project development timelines.
“Arkansas produces about 9.4 billion gallons of brine per year, according to 2010-2016 average statistics reported by the Arkansas Oil & Gas Commission.”
Standard Lithium signed a binding MoU with global specialty chemicals company LANXESS Corporation and its U.S. affiliate Great Lakes Chemical Corporation with the purpose of demonstrating the commercial viability of extraction of lithium from brine (“tail brine”) that is produced as part of LANXESS’ bromine extraction business at its three Southern Arkansas facilities.
LANXESS’ land operations in Southern Arkansas encompass more than 150,000 acres, 10,000 brine leases and surface agreements and 250 miles of pipelines. LANXESS extracts the brine from its wells located throughout the area, and the brine is transported to the three Arkansas plants through a network of pipelines. The three bromine extraction plants currently employ approximately 500 people and process and reinject several hundred thousand barrels of brine per day.
Standard Lithium has developed a breakthrough rapid lithium extraction process that reduces the recovery time of extracting lithium from brine to as little as several hours vs. the current industry method that takes years. The process is also much more environmentally friendly with a significantly smaller footprint than the conventional processes. The company has a signed agreement to locate a demonstration scale lithium extraction plant inside one of LANXESS’ chemical plants in Southern Arkansas.
The Company has also signed an option agreement with NYSE-listed Tetra Technologies for the lithium rights for exploration, extraction, and possible commercial development on approximately 30,000 acres of brine leases in Southern Arkansas. The largest available land package.
Recent laboratory results of four brine samples recovered from two existing wells in Standard Lithium’s project area showed lithium concentrations ranging between 347-461 mg/L lithium, with an average of 450 mg/L lithium in one of the wells and 350 mg/L in the other. Geological modeling of the project area is complete, and a maiden resource report is on the horizon.
World demand for lithium continues to surge. The global lithium compounds market is projected to reach U.S. $5.87 billion by 2020 at a compound annual growth rate of 13.22% between 2015 and 2020. Lithium-ion batteries are the fastest growing segment of the market.
Standard Lithium’s commitment to being a premier, innovation-driven company focused on developing and commercializing new modern processes for lithium extraction is bolstered by the leading experts that comprise the company’s Scientific Advisory Council. Each member was selected because of their experience and expertise in areas that are central to and/or complement Standard Lithium’s current development plans. Standard Lithium recently welcomed to the Council world-renowned chemist Dr. Barry Sharpless, the recipient of the 2001 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work on chirally catalyzed oxidation reactions.
Standard Lithium is led by a team of professionals with proven strong technical and project development skills. CEO Robert Mintak has a global network of industry contacts and is a pioneer in the rapidly evolving lithium space. COO and President Dr. Andy Robinson is an experienced geoscientist with 20+ years of experience and a PhD in Geochemistry from the University of Bristol, UK. Dr. Robinson has worked on a wide range of projects in the resource, power and energy sectors in Europe, Africa, and North and South America.
The company recently appointed Robert Cross as non-executive chairman. Cross is an engineer with 25 years of experience as a financier and company builder in the mining and oil and gas sectors. He co-founded and serves as chairman of B2Gold, a top-performing growing gold producer which is expected to achieve nearly 1 million ounces of low-cost gold production in 2018. He was also co-founder and chairman of Bankers Petroleum Ltd.; co-founder and chairman of Petrodorado Energy Ltd.; and until October 2007 was the non-executive chairman of Northern Orion Resources Inc. He also was previously the chairman and CEO of Yorkton Securities Inc., and a partner in investment banking with Gordon Capital Corp. in Toronto. Cross has an engineering degree from the University of Waterloo (1982) and received an MBA from Harvard in 1987.
Following a multi-million-dollar financing in Q1 2018, Standard Lithium is well-positioned to meet its upcoming milestones including two maiden resource reports and the launch of its breakthrough rapid lithium extraction technology.
Standard Lithium Ltd. (OTC: STLHF), closed the day's trading session at $0.70, off by 2.51%, on 12,581 volume with 12 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 53,986 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.59/$1.60.

QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (OTC: QMCQF) (TSX-V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ)
QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (OTC: QMCQF) (TSX.V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ) is engaged in the exploration and development of a major spodumene-bearing lithium project and two volcanic massive sulphide (“VMS”) copper, lead and zinc properties. The company is at the vanguard in North America to supply lithium as demand for the white metal that is powering EVs (electronic vehicles), mobile phones and most of today’s electronic devices increases. In 2017, demand for lithium by lithium-ion battery manufacturers increased by 46 percent (http://nnw.fm/jR8Q6).
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 $0.2044, off by 2.82%, on 10,000 volume with 9 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 65,390 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.1155/$0.54.
