NioCorp Developments announced In October 2018 that it signed a commercial sales agreement with Traxys North America LLC for up to 120 tonnes of scandium trioxide over the first 10 years of operation of NioCorp's planned Elk Creek Critical Minerals Project in Nebraska. The contract presupposes NioCorp Developments securing project financing, obtaining all required approvals, and building a mine and processing facility at Elk Creek.
This week, NioCorp Developments launched the "Superalloy Blog" on its newly designed corporate website at https://www.niocorp.com/. The Superalloy Blog's opening article, written by NioCorp Developments' Chief Executive Officer and Executive Chairman, Mr. Mark A. Smith, centers on the market fundamentals of ferroniobium, which is one of three critical minerals the Company plans to produce at the Elk Creek Superalloy Materials Project in Nebraska.
Mr. Smith writes, "The technology and market fundamentals of ferroniobium, a critical and strategic material vital to many defense and civilian applications, are increasingly compelling to producers, consumers, and government policymakers. This extraordinary and highly versatile superalloy material, which NioCorp plans to produce at its proposed southeast-Nebraska-based Elk Creek Project, is increasingly in the global spotlight."

Aurania Resources Ltd. (AUIAF)
Investing News Alerts, StockCharts, Streetwise Reports, Stockwatch, OTC Markets, Penny Stock Hub, Junior Mining Network, Wallet Investor, 4-Traders, MarketWatch, Stockhouse, Barchart, GuruFocus, Morningstar, Investors Hangout, and TradingView reported previously on Aurania Resources Ltd. (AUIAF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Aurania Resources Ltd. is a junior exploration mining company based in Toronto, Ontario. The Company engages in the identification, evaluation, acquisition and exploration of mineral property interests. Its focus is on precious metals and copper. The Company's flagship asset is The Lost Cities-Cutucu Project. Aurania Resources lists on the OTC Markets' OTCQB.
The Lost Cities-Cutucu Project is situated in the Jurassic Metallogenic Belt in the eastern foothills of the Andes mountain range of southeastern Ecuador. The Lost City Project is in the southeastern part of the Republic of Ecuador, in the Province of Morona-Santiago. The Project comprises circa 208,000 hectares in 42 concessions occupying the central part of the Cordillera de Cutucu. The concessions extend roughly 95 km along the Cordillera.
Aurania Resources also has three projects in Canton Valais, Switzerland. These are Siviez (Uranium, Copper and Gold), Marécottes (Uranium), and Mont Chemin (Gold). All of these projects are 100 percent held through Aurania's wholly-owned subsidiary AuroVallis SARL.
Aurania Resources reported this past November that gold and pathfinder elements typical of epithermal systems were detected in stream sediments from an area about 5 kilometers (km) long in the Tinchi target in its Lost Cities Cutucu project in southeastern Ecuador. The Tinchi target lies along trend of the Kirus region in which high-grade copper has been discovered.
Aurania Resources also reported in November that its exploration teams discovered silver-lead-zinc mineralization in grab samples that run as high as 325 g/t silver, 48 percent zinc, and 39 percent lead, discovered between the new Tiria epithermal gold-silver target and the Jempe copper porphyry zone in its Lost Cities - Cutucu Project.
In January, Aurania Resources reported up to 9 percent copper with 185 grams per tonne (g/t) silver from grab samples of rock in streams draining a doughnut-shaped magnetic feature identified as the "Tsenken-A" porphyry target in magnetic data from the Lost Cities - Cutucu Project.
Dr. Keith Barron, Aurania's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "The significance of these high-grade copper results is that they suggest that the highly magnetic feature at Tsenken - rather than being one very large, broad target area - is resolving into a cluster of discrete magnetic features, each of which could be a porphyry body. So, rather than having one potential source of copper at Tsenken, we probably have multiple sources that underscore the mineralization potential of the target area…"
Aurania Resources Ltd. (AUIAF), closed Wednesday's trading session at $2.8455, up 5.89%, on 6,100 volume with 9 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 6,646 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $1.025/$3.004.

(OWCP), and we report on the Company as well, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
OWC Pharmaceutical Research Corp. engages in the research and development (R&D) of cannabis-based medical products. The Company provides medical products for the treatment of different medical conditions and/or diseases. These include multiple myeloma, psoriasis, PTSD, migraines, and delivery systems. OTCQB-listed, OWC Pharmaceutical Research is headquartered in Petach Tikva, Israel. One World Cannabis Ltd. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of OWC Pharmaceutical Research.
OWC has entered into research and collaboration agreements with three of the leading research institutions in Israel. These include Sheba Academic Medical Center, one of the top academic hospitals in the Middle East. These agreements serve as the basis for the Company's clinical trials. They ensure that all of its studies have been, and will continue to be, founded on established research protocols of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Institutional Review Boards, and Independent Ethical Committees.
OWC has completed the development of a proprietary, cannabinoid-enriched sublingual tablet for the administration of medical cannabis. The technology behind the tablet is protected. It provides for the ingestion of almost any dosage of medical cannabis with a sublingual delivery mechanism, where the compounds are absorbed directly into the patient's blood by way of oral epithelial tissue.
Subsidiary One World Cannabis' Research Division centers on pursuing clinical trials evaluating the effectiveness of cannabinoids in the treatment of diverse medical conditions. Its Consulting Division's dedication is to helping governments and companies navigate complex international cannabis regulatory frameworks.
OWC has received the first ever Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval to conduct a safety study for a cannabis-based topical cream with more than 3 percent THC. The Company is conducting a safety study (FDA Phase 1 equivalent) in one of the largest academic hospitals in Israel.
Going forward, OWC Pharmaceutical Research's comparative safety and efficacy trial for its tablet will be initiated in Q2 of 2019.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF)
Cannabis-focused research and development company The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX: TGOD) (OTCQX: TGODF) is focused on becoming the global leader in delivering premium organic cannabis solutions to enhance the lives of people around the world. If 2018's accomplishments are any indication of what's to come, then TGOD is well on its way to realizing its strategic vision, as TGOD Director and CEO Brian Athaide stated in a news release (http://nnw.fm/C5gje).
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.

Black Iron Inc. (TSX: BKI) (OTC: BKIRF) (GR: BIN)
Canadian iron ore exploration and development company Black Iron (TSX: BKI) (OTC: BKIRF) (GR: BIN) anticipates commencing construction at its 100%-owned Shymanivske project by the end of 2019. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/leX91.
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.

SinglePoint (OTCQB: SING), a technology and investment company concentrating on acquiring companies that will benefit from the injection of growth capital and technology integration, this morning released a video shareholder update featuring chief executive officer Greg Lambrecht to discuss the overall strategy of the company and provide insight to upcoming projects. To view the shareholder update video, visit http://nnw.fm/L0Xz4. To view the full press release, visit: http://nnw.fm/n5AY2.
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.

He is currently recognized by the Professional Golfers Association of America (PGA) as a Class A Professional.

Located in Tarrytown, New York, Nightfood is the creator of tasty, award-winning, better-for-you ice cream formulated by sleep and nutrition experts. The company has optimized the macro-nutrient and ingredient profiles of its sleep-friendly products for nighttime.
Nightfood Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: NGTF), a pioneering consumer goods brand development company headquartered in Tarrytown, New York, owns Nightfood, Inc., creator of delicious, award-winning and better-for-you ice cream formulated by sleep and nutrition experts, and its wholly owned subsidiary MJ Munchies, Inc., which seeks to capitalize on legally compliant opportunities in the CBD and marijuana edibles and related spaces. Known as “The Nighttime Snack Company,” Nightfood Inc. is focused on improving the late-night snacking choices of consumers while solving America’s $50 billion-dollar nighttime snacking problem.
Nightfood Ice Cream
Nightfood’s higher-protein and sleep-friendly ice cream won the 2019 Product of the Year Award in a survey of over 40,000 consumers. The annual Product of the Year survey, the world’s largest consumer-voted award for product innovation, is conducted by Kantar, a global leader in consumer research. In beating out the other finalists, consumers indicated that Nightfood’s one-of-a-kind innovation and unique value proposition made it a clear-cut winner in the ice cream space and a brand they were highly motivated to try. Winners of the 32-year-old award have been shown to outperform category sales performance by over 38 percent.
Less than two months since manufacturing their first pint of ice cream, Nightfood has now secured distribution in more than 13 states, and has received extensive media coverage from outlets such as USA Today, Fox Business’ Mornings With Maria, Parents Magazine, The Food Network, MarketWatch, The Washington Post, Business Insider, Bustle, and more.
With the Product of the Year award and millions in media coverage, Management has publicly stated their goal of securing nationwide distribution in over 10,000 retail outlets by March 31, 2020.
Formulated by leading sleep and nutrition experts, including America’s most prominent sleep expert, Dr. Michael Breus, Nightfood’s higher protein/higher fiber, and lower sugar ice cream delivers great ice cream taste and texture, while minimizing sleep-disruptive ingredients such as caffeine, excess sugar, and excess fat and calories. The addition of certain minerals, enzymes and amino acids, which research suggests can support sleep quality, is another bonus. Nightfood only uses hormone-free milk, is certified Kosher, and offers eight original flavors, five of which are gluten-free. Nightfood ice cream also uses all-natural sweeteners with no Erythritol, no sucralose, or other artificial sweeteners.
More than 37,000 consumers across the country have already requested coupons for the company’s newly launched Nightfood ice cream by entering a giveaway hosted at NightfoodIceCream.com which includes a chance to win a one-year supply (96 pints) plus a freezer for storage. The coupon program is being run in conjunction with PromotionPod, which has previously conducted successful campaigns for brands such as Chobani, Halo Top, and BodyArmor.
Nightfood Inc. began its nationwide rollout of Nightfood ice cream in February 2019, successfully securing placement in Meijer supermarket locations in the Midwest with a concentration around the metropolitan areas of Chicago, Detroit, Indianapolis, Columbus and Milwaukee. A distribution agreement with New England Ice Cream Corporation (NEIC) will also place Nightfood ice cream in outlets located throughout Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Rhode Island and Connecticut.
Ice cream lovers in northern California will find Nightfood Ice Cream at various upscale, independent retail outlets in and around the San Francisco bay area serviced through a distribution agreement with Wonder Ice Cream Company, which services thousands of retail outlets from Bakersfield north to the Oregon border. Consumers can also purchase Nightfood ice cream online at BuyNightfood.com through the Company’s partnership with IceCreamSource.com.
Ice cream is now the 2nd most popular night snack choice, with almost half of all consumers reaching for ice cream after dark. According to IRI Worldwide, 44 percent of all snack consumption occurs between dinner and bedtime, representing a consumer spend of over $1 billion weekly on nighttime snacks in the U.S. alone. Market research giant Mintel recently released a report identifying nighttime specific food and beverages as one of their most “compelling and category changing” trends for 2017 and beyond.
Nightfood has developed a dynamic infographic resource that clearly illustrates the size and scope of the largely untapped nighttime snack category (http://NightSnacking.com). Americans everywhere are likely to identify with the infographic’s results that vividly illustrate late night snacking by age group, popular snack choice, and amount of money spent each week on feeding after-hour snack attacks. Available in eight delicious flavors, Nightfood ice cream can help consumers satisfy nighttime cravings in a better, healthier, more sleep-friendly way.
MJ Munchies, Inc.
MJ Munchies, Inc., was formed in 2018 as a new, wholly owned subsidiary of Nightfood Holdings, Inc. to capitalize on legally compliant opportunities in the CBD and marijuana edibles and related spaces. The Company intends to market some of these new products under the trademarked brand name “Half-Baked” and has entered into a Letter of Intent that allows Global Consortium Inc. (OTC: GCGX) subsidiary Infused Edibles to receive an exclusive license to manufacture and distribute marijuana and CBD-infused products under the Half-Baked brand.
Management believes the Half-Baked brand will give the Company a unique and defensible competitive advantage against other recreational edible brands. The Company believes tremendous opportunities currently exist to launch successful and legally compliant products in this space, and that such opportunities will continue to grow over time.
Nightfood founder and CEO Sean Folkson is a formerly frustrated nighttime snacker whose late-night cravings led him to seek a better solution for himself and others through the creation, marketing and distribution of the Nightfood product line. Folkson also founded internet marketing company AffiliatePros.com which provided the startup capital to launch Specialty Equipment Direct, an online distributor of floor removal equipment that quickly grew to 7-figure revenues. Folkson received a bachelor’s degree in business administration with a concentration in marketing from S.U.N.Y Albany, New York, in 1991.

Earth Science Tech, Inc. (ETST)
Earth Science Tech Inc. (OTCQB: ETST), a biotech company focused on the nutraceutical and pharmaceutical fields, is marketing its full-spectrum CBD products to a broader retail audience, such as large chains, health food stores and independent pharmacies. This strategic move comes as five Cowen & Co. analysts project that CBD consumer products are winning diverse shelf space in locations that include online sites, specialty outlets such as Sephora and fine department stores, including Neiman Marcus (http://nnw.fm/fD89D).
Earth Science Tech, Inc. (ETST) is an innovative biotechnology company operating in the fields of hemp cannabinoid (CBD), nutraceutical, pharmaceutical and medical device research and development. Earth Science Tech offers the highest purity and quality, full-spectrum, high-grade hemp CBD (cannabidiol) oil on the market. Made using the supercritical CO2 liquid extraction process, the company’s CBD oil is 100 percent natural and organic. Earth Science Tech has partnered with the University of Central Oklahoma and DV Biologics Laboratory to conduct research and development projects that scientifically support and advance the healthcare benefits of its high-grade hemp CBD oil.
Earth Science Tech Inc. currently has three wholly owned subsidiaries focused on developing its role as a world leader in the CBD space and expanding its work in the pharmaceutical and medical device sectors. These subsidiaries include:
- Earth Science Pharma, Inc., which is committed to development of low cost, noninvasive diagnostic tools, medical devices, testing processes and vaccines for sexually transmitted infections and/or diseases. Earth Science Pharmaceutical CEO and chief science officer Michel Aubé is leading the company’s research and development efforts. The company’s first medical device, MSN-2, is a home kit designed for the detection of STIs, such as chlamydia, from a self-obtained gynecological specimen. Earth Science Pharma is working to develop and bring to market medical devices and vaccines that meet the specific needs of women.
- Cannabis Therapeutics, Inc. (“CTI”), which is poised to take a leadership role in the development of new, leading-edge, cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products. CTI is invested in research and development to explore and harness the medicinal power of cannabidiol. The company holds a provisional application patent for a CBD product that is focused on developing treatments for breast and ovarian cancers.
- KannaBidioiD (“KBD”) provides a wide variety of products geared toward the recreational space of cannabis. KBD’s unique Kanna and CBD formulation is sold and distributed in CBD-infused edibles and vapes/e-liquids products. Kanna and CBD synergistically enhance one another, providing optimal relaxation, an uplifting sensation, enhanced focus and the added benefit of assisting with nicotine reduction therapy.
Earth Science Tech celebrated a significant, developmental year during 2017 by sharing its achievements in a condensed end-of-year report. Among the report’s highlights are the implementation of a development plan for the coming three years, which includes expanding into Canada and opening new manufacturing and shipping facilities. Of particular interest is the acquisition of Canna Inno Laboratories Inc., a company headquartered in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, which gives Earth Science Tech access to Canadian government grants offered to innovators in the pharmaceutical industry. ETST has also launched development of proprietary prophylactic therapies utilizing cannabidiol (CBD) to treat various forms of breast cancer.
In October 2017, ETST announced it is cooperating with the Clinique SIDA Amité (AIDS Friendship Clinic) for a mini-clinical trial, the last trial needed before the MSN-2 device, designed for the detection of STIs, enters molecular diagnostic trials. And in November 2017, the company began pre-launch human trials on a new CBD formula to fight against the U.S. opioid epidemic. The new formula, expected to decrease cravings and the negative effects of withdrawal in addicts, is based on industrial hemp CBD mixed with a known natural ingredient proven to help increase dopamine levels. ETST’s medical devices will first be launched in Vietnam, Djibouti and Morocco while the company awaits regulatory permission to enter the North American market.
The company expects to up-list to the OTCQB in early 2018, which management believes will attract well-funded institutional investors and pave the way to becoming the next billion-dollar-in-capitalization company on the OTC markets. Other highlights include completion of the company’s Scientific Advisory Council with a team of recognized scientists, the launching of several CBD-infused edible products and entry into the medical devices market through collaborative partnerships.
Earth Science Tech has signed a collaborate agreement with Laboratories BNK Canada, a private laboratory that will conduct the clinical studies necessary for MSN-2 medical device-related services to meet regulatory requirements. ETST has confirmed the MSN-2 device’s ability to detect chlamydia, and is working to validate similar results for gonorrhea, both highly infectious diseases that often have permanent consequences for patients. ETST will also add testing for trichomoniasis and a complete body fluid panel to detect the different serotypes of the human papillomavirus (HPV) that causes cervical cancer. These additions will help the company create sales opportunities in the global market for diagnostic testing of STDs that Transparency Market Research has indicated will grow to $108 billion by 2019.
Cannabis Therapeutics is in the development stage of two cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical drugs and three cannabinoid-based nutraceutical products targeting a variety of ailments such as anxiety, depression, triple negative breast cancer, and fatty liver disease, among others. Research into the benefits of the non-psychoactive cannabinoid molecules found in the cannabis plant is supported by ETST’s International Application for Provisional Patent titled “Cannabidiol Compositions Including Mixtures and Uses Thereof,” which was filed on October 8, 2015. Cannabis Thera’s R&D efforts are concentrated on developing CBD-based drugs and nutraceutical products and in working to integrate the CBD molecule with existing generic drug molecules to create more efficient medications with fewer and less severe side effects. A report in Hemp Business Journal predicts the CBD consumer market will grow to $2.1 billion by 2020, while other industry experts expect an increase to almost $3 billion by 2021. A recent report by Statista projects the U.S. consumer market for cannabinoid-based pharmaceuticals could reach $50 billion by the year 2029.
The management team at Earth Science Tech brings decades of invaluable experience to the nutraceutical, dietary supplement field as well as the life sciences sectors. Nickolas S. Tabraue, who serves as the president, director and chief operating officer, is an industry veteran with extensive knowledge of supplements, retail management, customer service and sales expertise. He is joined by CEO and CSO Dr. Michel Aubé, a microbiologist whose scientific research in sexually transmitted infections, cancer and stem cell biology has been widely published in several prestigious medical journals. Sergio Castillo, chief marketing officer, and Gabriel Aviles, chief sales officer, bring a wealth of marketing and sales experience to Earth Science Tech, which is complemented by Issa El-Cheikh, Ph.D., and his 25 years in the international finance, accounting, planning and execution of large scale transactions in the public and private sectors.

Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD)
Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD) was featured today in a report by CannabisNewsWire. Ever since the Farm Bill was signed into law, farmers across the United States have rushed into hemp cultivation, driving demand for the supplies needed to grow the crop necessary to meet surging CBD use.
Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD), one of the largest publicly traded hydroponics supply companies moving into the industrial hemp space, is a product and brand marketing company investing in products and brands with disruptive potential. Sugarmade’s brands include: ZenHydro.com; CarryOutSupplies.com; and BudLife.

Sugarmade has expanded into the European hydroponics supply market with a growing base of orders taken through Amazon UK. 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 strain of industrial hemp being grown by Hempistry is ultra-rich in CBD but contains less than 0.3 percent of THC, the psychoactive ingredient found in cannabis. 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. BizRight operates the ZenHydro.com website and other e-commerce properties and sells various products to distributors and retailers. BizRight is expected to produce in excess of $30 million in revenues during 2017, with substantial growth expected for 2018.
Sugarmade division CarryOutSupplies.com, the leader in paper and plastic take-out supplies, serves nationwide customers by offering a wide array of high quality products that are cost-efficient, custom-made and delivered on time. 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.
Arman Tabatabaei serves as operations consultant, providing high-level, day-to-day strategic guidance and tactical operational supervision for all aspects of the corporation’s business. He is an expert at data collection and analysis relative to resource management, risk forecasting and profit and loss management.
Sugarmade specializes in growing and acquiring innovative brands to maximize value for company employees, shareholders and other stakeholders. Sugarmade believes its future is very bright as the company expands operations within the cultivation sector and rapidly increases its revenue base. 6

Millennial Lithium Corp. (TSX.V: ML) (FSE: A3N2) (OTC: MLNLF)
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.

Consorteum Holdings, Inc. (CSRH)
Consorteum Holdings, Inc. (CSRH) is a software development and mobile solutions company focused on the delivery of digital offerings to mobile devices. The company provides mobile offerings, delivery of mobile content, mobile payments solutions and products through a mix of direct offerings, partnerships, license agreements and joint venture arrangements. A multi-year transition from a transaction management company focused on transaction processing solutions and products for the payment processing and financial transaction markets to multiple business verticals deepens the company's commitment to deliver innovating solutions to end users who are using smart handset devices in radical new ways.
Consorteum Holdings, utilizing its Universal Mobile Interface™ ("UMI") solution, offers opportunities in numerous markets with its capacity to support fully regulated, regionally compliant financial and social transactions via web and mobile. The company's UMI technology has the capacity to provide solutions in FinTech, data analytics, secure payment processing, compliance lead transaction management and various digital social event sectors. The UMI platform allows cross operating system development to support all mobile devices while addressing the complex and highly regulated needs of the mobile FinTech industry.
Led by the development team at Consorteum's wholly owned subsidiary 359 Mobile Inc., the Company has created an end-to-end FinTech solution utilizing the company's UMI technology platform. Current mobile application and transaction solutions are plagued by poor experiences. Because UMI's technology platform is designed to work across innovative payment, experience and product solutions, 359 Mobile believes there are both direct and partnership opportunities for the 359 Mobile UMI solution.
Consorteum's primary sales and marketing strategy is focused on enabling and delivering solutions to the global mobile FinTech market with an emphasis initially on mobile gaming. The trend towards increased mobile gambling supports the need for a mobile platform such as the UMI to meet existing and new compliance regulations for the online gambling industry. The online gambling market is projected to double to nearly $1 trillion by 2021, according to a study by Juniper Research, with the majority of growth in this sector attributed to mobile devices. Consorteum's management team believes there are fresh opportunities in this sector such as Mobile Marketing Services providing one-to-one marketing experiences for consumers; offering real-time services to Mobile Sports Book operators; and providing fixed odds betting solutions as well as social-based transactional solutions.
Consorteum's management team includes Chairman and CEO Craig A. Fielding, a co-founder of the company with extensive experience in technology, programming and large system building; and Chief Operating Officer Patrick Shuster, who has over 25 years of business experience in sales, engineering, operations and marketing for the telecommunications industry.

City View Green Holdings Inc. (CSE: CVGR)
City View Green Holdings Inc.'s (CSE: CVGR) (formerly Icon Exploration Inc.) primary objective is to create a well-diversified company focused on assessing and potentially acquiring targets in the cannabis industry. Icon Exploration recently signed a formal share exchange agreement relating to its proposed acquisition of privately held City View Green (“CVG”), a vertically integrated cannabis company incorporated under the laws of Ontario, Canada. CVG’s application to Health Canada for an A6ccess to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (“ACMPR”) license is now at the in-depth review stage of the licensing process.
CVG is preparing a 40,000-square-foot growing facility near Toronto to produce pharmaceutical-grade cannabis once its ACMPR license is granted. About half of the facility will initially be outfitted with state-of-the-art LED lighting, HVAC and dehumidification systems, and automation technologies to optimize the quality, safety and consistency of cannabis production. About 4,000 square feet will be devoted to an extraction laboratory featuring an ultra-efficient CO2 supercritical extraction process with plans to include ethanol extraction technology in the future.
Another 4.3 acres remains available for future construction of up to 125,000 square feet of grow and extraction space. Production plans include producing high quality edible products, distillates, and water-soluble products for the rapidly expanding CBD-infused (cannabidiol) beverage market.
Icon and CVG have assembled a talented team that includes a Master Grower with cannabis-industry experience to manage indoor grow operations and an extraction expert whose expertise in developing and launching new products was honed while working in Washington state’s cannabis sector. Having gained experience in the Washington state market the extraction expert has a number of brand ideas and recreational cannabis products that became popular in the Washington market as well as a number of in-licensing branding opportunities available to CVG. CVG has also negotiated an agreement with a private company seeking 37 retail cannabis licenses in Alberta, Canada, that provides a reciprocal exchange of shares, product, shelf space and distribution lines. Early discussions with various entities in Europe to arrange an off-take agreement for CBD oils and extracts are also underway.
The Canadian medical cannabis market has steadily been growing with an average 10 percent increase in patients each month. Now that the Canadian federal government has legalized recreational cannabis for adult users nationwide, analysts project a compound annual growth rate of nearly 78 percent from 2018 to 2021, reaching an estimated $3 billion by 2021, ArcView Market Research reports. One study from Deloitte pegged the potential economic impact of legalized medical and recreational marijuana in Canada – including transportation, licensing fees and security – at more than $22 billion over the coming years. Health Canada’s most recent data show that sales of cannabis extracts grew 961 percent in the second quarter of 2017, compared to an 89 percent increase in growth of dried cannabis during the same period.
City View Green Holdings Inc. (CSE: CVGR), closed the day's trading session at $0.12, off by 14.29%, on 174,440 volume with 36 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 461,875 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.10/$0.465.

Pacific Software, Inc. (PFSF)
Pacific Software, Inc. (PFSF) is an emerging technology corporation positioned for investments, mergers and acquisitions of software technologies and platforms. The company is building “BoaPin,” a subscription-based e-commerce trading platform focused on cross border trade expansion with an international emphasis. The multi-faceted e-commerce platform is scheduled for launch in Q1 of 2019.
The Company is uniquely positioned to deliver a B2B and B2C intelligent e-commerce trade platform which will provide various solutions, data, applications and tools for subscribers, including IBM’s Hyperledger Blockchain “Backend as a Service” (BaaS) Infrastructure, multi-lingual communication, fintech, digital marketing, smart contracts, commodities search/match applications, customs clearance, taxation data, product advertising and logistics solutions.
Through smart contract technology for global supply chain management, BoaPin is designed to improve product traceability and deliver solutions to its subscribers for product certification, marketing, logistics, commodities search/match interface, trade finance, cross border payment solutions and customs clearance. Some of the tools available to execute these capabilities include cross border payments, blockchain solutions, smart contracts and multilingual access.
With these features at hand, the company is targeting several key industries where its online applications and solutions could have significant corporate impact in various forms, including: agriculture, fertilizers, chemicals, cosmetics, electronics, equipment, apparel and controlled substance management.
Pacific Software initially will focus on Brazil and China for BoaPin. After paying a registration fee to utilize the online trade portal, subscribers to the platform will have access to a variety of tools and features that may enhance and increase revenue initiatives by showcasing their commodities and products for sale or trade.
Buyers of the commodities, products or services will pay a transaction fee only to the company which could materialize in the form of cash, cash equivalents, royalties or in-kind fees.
As the company executes its strategy, the online trade business is anticipated to generate significant revenue from subscribers obtained from regionally and federally organized Brazilian Trade Associations. The members wish to market their commodities or products, and the portal users or buyers materialize from China, Hong Kong and surrounding countries. As a result, this business model may be organized separately in the company’s wholly owned subsidiary, incorporated as HyperSoft Ventures, which could generate appreciable value for investors and shareholders.
Pacific Software, Inc. (PFSF), closed the day's trading session at $4.50, even for the day. The stock's 52-week low/high is $2.00/$5.50.
