(CTBO), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Cantabio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. centers on bringing novel, first-in-class drug candidates into clinical trials and beyond. The Company does so via the discovery and development of unique pharmacological chaperone and protein delivery based therapeutics, focusing on protein systems implicated in neurodegenerative disorders. These include Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and oxidative stress. At present, Cantabio Pharmaceuticals is engaging in advanced pre-clinical trials of its therapeutic candidates and is centered on developing these towards clinical trials.

OTCQB-listed, Cantabio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. was created by way of the merger of Gardedam Therapeutics with Cantabio Pharmaceuticals in November 2015. A preclinical stage biotechnology enterprise, Cantabio Pharmaceuticals has its corporate office in Sunnyvale, California.

Cantabio is concentrating on commercializing novel therapies and the Intellectual Property (IP) produced from its research and development (R&D) activities for Parkinson’s disease (PD), Alzheimer’s disease (AD), and other related neurodegenerative diseases. Its strategy mixes a detailed therapeutic emphasis, target family biophysics, and drug discovery technology and expertise into an inventive drug discovery approach.

This particular approach is currently identifying and developing small molecule pharmacological chaperones for clinical trials. In addition, the Company is developing therapeutic proteins, which can pass through the blood-brain barrier to supplement existing levels of proteins that display loss of function during disease conditions.

Cantabio Pharmaceuticals has a new preclinical therapeutic program for Alzheimer’s disease, which it is pursuing via its drug discovery partnership with NovAliX. This program is targeted at the development of small molecule chaperones that stabilize the Abeta peptide, the aggregation of which is considered to be a vital element in the onset and progression of Alzheimer’s disease.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD).

Cannabis-focused research and development company The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX: TGOD) this morning announced its entry into an exclusive agreement with Stillwater Brands to license RIPPLE SC (Soluble Cannabinoids) ingredient technology and other proprietary beverage and food technologies and formulations related to cannabinoid-infused consumer packaged goods, including micro-dose and full-dose tea sticks, within Canada and certain international jurisdictions outside of the United States. To view the full press release, visit: http://cnw.fm/i6h6K.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD), 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 company’s Universal Mobile Interface™ (“UMI”) technology will allow it to jointly develop internal and third-party solutions for a broad range of vertical markets. The Consorteum UMI may be just the technology to unlock the potential of mobile marketing.

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 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.

Lithium Chile Inc. (TSX.V: LITH) (OTCQB: LTMCF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Lithium Chile Inc. (LTMCF).

Lithium Chile Inc. (TSX.V: LITH) (OTCQB: LTMCF) is pleased to announce that it is now listed on the OTC-QB under the symbol "LTMCF". This enables US investors to purchase and hold the Company's shares in their accounts. In addition, the Company has been made eligible for Depository Trust Company electronic settlement and transfer of its common shares in the United States.

Lithium Chile Inc. (TSX.V: LITH) (OTCQB: LTMCF), headquartered in Canada, is advancing one of the largest lithium-rich exploration portfolios in Chile consisting of more than 148,000 hectares covering sections of 13 salars or mineral salt flats and one laguna complex. The company’s wholly owned premier properties include 66 square kilometers on the Salar de Atacama, Chile’s largest mineral salt flat which hosts the world’s highest concentration of lithium brine production and is currently the source of about 35 percent of the world’s lithium production. Lithium Chile also owns a significant copper/gold/silver property portfolio consisting of 28,184 hectares over six different properties.

Lithium Chile’s portfolio in the heart of Chile’s lithium-rich salars includes Salar de Coipasa, Salar de Helados, Salar de Atacama, Salar de Turi Salar de Ollague and Salar de Talar. Surface and near surface salt and brine sampling programs on all properties has been completed. To date, samples of high-grade, near-surface lithium brines at each of these projects are showing excellent chemistry of lithium to potassium and lithium to magnesium ratios. Good chemistry is important as it reduces your overall cost of production. Recent geophysical surveys including T.E.M have been completed on 5 of 6 priority targets and data collected to date has been extremely encouraging.

Lithium Chile has identified multiple high-priority brine target areas at its Atacama and Ollague lithium project areas. These areas display the same geophysical characteristics as the lithium-rich aquifers at Salar de Atacama, home to the world’s largest and highest-grade lithium brine producers. Spanning an area of 1,200 square miles, Salar de Atacama is the world’s third largest salt flat behind Salinas Grandes in Argentina and El Salar de Uyuni in neighboring Bolivia. Exploration drilling and resource definition drilling for these target areas are planned for 2018.

“We are delighted with the discovery of such impressive drill target areas at Atacama and Ollague. The results also follow the recent discovery of a 60km2 target area at another of our top Chilean projects – Helados – where we hope to drill in the second quarter of 2018,” stated President and CEO Steve Cochrane. “We have an aggressive multi-project drill program planned for this year, which includes all three of these exciting projects and we look forward to sharing drill results as they come through.”

Global demand for lithium-ion batteries is expected to surpass US$53 billion by 2024 as governments around the world aggressively seek to ban gas-powered vehicles and major automakers invest billions in new technology and electric vehicles powered by lithium-ion batteries. Chile’s mining-friendly jurisdiction offers Lithium Chile a clear, streamlined permitting process that significantly lowers the cost of lithium production to around $1,800/ton as compared to Australia’s $5,000/ton.

Lithium Chile is led by an experienced team with strong Chilean connections. Cochrane’s 36 years of investment industry experience have primarily been focused on the mining sector. During this time, he raised more than US$500 million for a variety of small cap public companies in various businesses and industry sectors including mining.

Terry Walker, P.Geol., vice president of exploration and chief geologist, is a highly experienced geologist. He has spent over 25 years in Chile’s mining industry and is well connected throughout the sector.

Maxtech Ventures Inc. (CSE: MVT) (OTC: MTEHF) (FRANKFURT: M1N)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Maxtech Ventures Inc. (MTEHF).

The price of manganese seems unable to cross the $2,120 per tonne mark, where it has floundered since 2013 (http://nnw.fm/PjH4k). That is likely to change soon, a development upon which Maxtech Ventures Inc. (OTC: MTEHF) (CSE: MVT) (FRANKFURT: M1N) is betting.

Maxtech Ventures Inc. (CSE: MVT) (OTC: MTEHF) (FRA: M1N), headquartered in Canada, is a junior exploration company assembling and acquiring mineral assets worldwide with a view to becoming a pure-play, low-cost supplier of manganese to the agricultural, industrial and green technology markets. Maxtech has assembled several high-grade manganese assets that it intends to develop with its established partners on the ground in strategic global regions.

Manganese is a diverse battery metal increasingly in high demand as an irreplaceable mainstay of steel production, an essential element of fertilizer in the agricultural sector, and as a vital resource in renewable battery technology. Maxtech Ventures is positioning itself to become a force in the green energy revolution where manganese is a critical element used in rechargeable batteries that power cars, hybrid vehicles, power tools and home appliances. LMD batteries, which typically use a 61 percent manganese in its mix and 4 percent lithium, are currently used in the Chevrolet Volt, Nissan Leaf, Hyundai Sonata and some Tesla-produced products. LMD batteries have numerous benefits including higher power output, thermal stability and improved safety compared to regular lithium-ion batteries.

“The price and demand for high-grade manganese is again on an upward trend. There are only a handful of junior pure play manganese explorers. This is an advantage Maxtech is looking to capitalize on as it expands its claims and strategic relationships in more mining jurisdictions,” said Maxtech Ventures CEO Peter Wilson.

Maxtech Ventures holds strategic partnerships; one of which is Grupo Maringa Ferro-Liga SA. Maringa is the second largest producer of high-grade manganese in South America with over 2,000 employees and over US$200 million in 2016 revenues.

Maxtech Ventures is currently advancing work on several high-grade manganese projects in Brazil with its first large land package in Juína in the State of Mato Grosso. This 40,000-plus hectare land package has assayed high-grade manganese results of 51.4 percent to 55.9 percent Mn. Detailed prospecting and geological studies are being continued on the Juína claims and a trial mining license (‘Guia de Utilização’) (GU) has been filed with the Departamento Nacional de Produção Mineral (DNPM) on one of the claims and the company is awaiting approval.

The company plans to expand its Brazilian operation into other states of the country including Pará and Goiás. Maxtech has signed a joint venture in the state of Pará on the exploration of 40,000 hectares as well as one in Goiás focused on the joint exploration, evaluation, and potential acquisition of manganese mineral deposits.

Maxtech is also currently preparing applications for licenses to explore potential high-grade manganese deposits in Zambia. The company will work closely with partner GeoQuest in its mandate to identify, joint-venture and acquire assets with high-grade manganese mineralization. GeoQuest is led and managed by Julian D.Green BSc., MSc., D.I.C., CGeol., EURGeol, FGS, FSAIMM. Julian has worked as a Professional Exploration Geologist in Eastern Europe, Australia and particularly Central and Southern Africa for a variety of mining and exploration companies including Tesla, KGHM, Rio Tinto and Caledonia.

Maxtech’s long-term strategy is to build an international industrial minerals company to produce and sell manganese ore and processed manganese into the global markets of Europe, North America and Asia. Maxtech Ventures has assembled a group of veterans in mining and exploration, acquisitions and field management to guide the development of its mineral interests.

CEO Peter Wilson has been the lead financier for public and private companies, raising over $300 million in equity and bond financings in the mineral and energy fields over the past two decades. As an experienced corporate executive, Wilson has extensive relationships in project acquisition, corporate structure and finance specializing in, but not limited to, the global resource sector.

John Harper, consulting geologist, is an international mineral exploration geoscientist and consultant with over 30 years of industry experience in base and precious metals, manganese, uranium and diamond exploration. He is a member in good standing of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA) and Ontario (APGO). His international experience has taken him to projects in Africa and Brazil where he managed comprehensive programs for Cancana’s manganese claims.

Sunniva Inc. (CSE:SNN) (OTCQX:SNNVF), a North American provider of cannabis products and services, is pleased to announce a major milestone with the receipt from Health Canada of the Confirmation of Readiness (“COR”) for a License under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (“ACMPR”) for the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Sunniva Medical Inc. (“SMI”).

Sunniva, Inc. (CSE: SNN) (OTCQX: SNNVF) is a vertically integrated medical cannabis company operating in the world’s two largest cannabis markets – Canada and California – committed to delivering safe, consistent, high-quality products and services. Sunniva operates through its wholly owned subsidiaries: Sunniva Medical Inc., CP Logistics, LLC, Natural Health Service Ltd., and Full-Scale Distributors, LLC. Sunniva’s vision is to become the lowest cost, highest quality cannabis producer in the markets it serves by building large scale purpose-built cGMP-compliant greenhouses, offering best quality assurance with cannabis products free from pesticides, providing better patient and doctor access to cannabis education, and sourcing better therapeutic delivery devices.

The company is establishing sophisticated distribution channels, including Sunniva’s ownership of Natural Health Services cannabis clinics in Canada with over 95,000 active patients, to purchase the significant quantities of high quality Sunniva-branded and Sunniva private-labeled cannabis products.

Sunniva is an ancient English name which means, “Gift of the Sun.” Sunniva’s team of horticulturists, scientists and engineers is helping to set best practices for the industry, believing that sun-grown, solar-powered cultivation is the most sustainable and cost-effective way to grow high-quality, premium cannabis.

The Sunniva Family includes:

CP Logistics, LLC

Through its subsidiary, CP Logistics LLC, Sunniva is developing Sunniva Campus, a state-of-the-art, purpose-built greenhouse facility in Cathedral City, California. This modern purpose-built, agri-technology greenhouse will adhere to the Current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) regulations that assure proper design, monitoring and control of manufacturing processes and facilities.

Phase 1 of the project includes a fully funded 325,000 square foot greenhouse capable of producing 60,000 kg per year of dry cannabis at capacity with operations commencing Q3 2018. Approximately 30 percent of initial total production will be converted into oils and extracts. Phase 2 is expected to increase the greenhouse by 165,000 square feet and grow production by about 40,000 kg per year.

These uniquely sealed greenhouses are designed to deploy custom, automation assembly line cultivation processes at a large scale. Energy consumption will be reduced while utilizing the energy of the sun and microclimatic controls to provide precise growing conditions. The greenhouse will recirculate air for more efficient climate control, and the company’s Integrated Pest Management System is designed to ensure every plant grown is certified clean and free of all contaminants and pesticides.

Sunniva Medical Inc.

Sunniva Medical Inc. is designing and preparing to break ground on the Sunniva Canada Campus encompassing 700,000 square feet of purpose-built cGMP greenhouse facilities in the Okanagan Valley, British Columbia. The total campus is expected to produce 100,000 kg of premium medical cannabis a year plus additional trim used for extraction. This facility will produce pesticide-free products and will convert trim to extracted products such as cannabis oil that can be used for drug delivery formats such as capsules, dissolvable strips, vaporization cartridges, tinctures and creams.

Sunniva and Canopy Growth Corporation (“Canopy Growth”) recently announced a large take or pay supply agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, Canopy Growth will purchase up to 45,000 kilograms of dried cannabis annually commencing Q1 2019, which includes the distribution of Sunniva branded products.

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.

Earth Science Tech’s products include CBD, a natural constituent of hemp oil derived from hemp stalk and seed. EST offers CBD in the form of vitamins, minerals, herbs, botanicals, personal care products, homeopathies, functional foods and other products delivered in such forms as capsules, tablets, soft gels, chewables, liquids, creams, sprays, powders and whole herbs. Earth Science products can be found at retail stores throughout the United States and are available for purchase through the internet.

Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTC: PQEFF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Petroteq Energy Inc. (PQEFF).

Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTCQX: PQEFF), focused on the development and implementation of proprietary, environmentally-friendly heavy oil extraction technologies for the energy industry, intends to expand its footprint by opening PetroBLOQ marketing offices in several key strategic locations around the globe. Also today, NetworkNewsWire released a report on the company detailing how PQEFF is advancing in the oil and gas sector by employing its patented heavy oil processing and extraction technologies, which are environmentally safe and sustainable. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/ZBvE6.

Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTC: PQEFF) is a Canadian-registered, publicly traded company engaged in the development and implementation of proprietary technologies for the environmentally safe extraction of heavy oils from oil sands, oil shale deposits and shallow oil deposits. The company is focused on oil and gas exploration and production on mineral leases it owns in Texas with Accord GR Energy Inc. and in expanding production capacity at its Asphalt Ridge heavy oil extraction facility in Utah.

Petroteq Energy is also participating in a blockchain initiative aimed at solving the global transaction needs of the oil and gas industry through the development of PetroBLOQ, the Company’s collaboration formed with First Bitcoin Capital Corp. (OTC: BITCF). PetroBLOQ’s novel blockchain-based oil and gas supply chain management platform is currently being co-developed by the two companies.

PetroBLOQ recently joined the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (“EEA”), the world’s largest open-source blockchain initiative. Membership with the 200-member EEA represents a wide variety of industries and offers 14 industry-focused, member-driven working groups.

“Joining this community of forward-looking enterprises and blockchain innovators is an important step for PetroBLOQ as we develop transformative solutions for the oil and gas industry,” said Petroteq Energy CEO Alex Blyumkin.

In addition, Petroteq has joined the American Petroleum Institute (API). The API is the only national trade association representing all facets of the oil and natural gas industry, promoting safety across the industry globally and influencing public policy in support of a strong, viable oil and natural gas industry. “API has led the development of operating standards for our industry, and we look forward to contributing our experience with oilfield technologies in addition to introducing our PetroBLOQ platform to its members throughout the supply chain,” Blyumkin previously stated.

Petroteq Energy’s patent-pending application is a closed-loop, solvent-based process, which results in significantly lower per-barrel production costs than those incurred with traditional hot water-based oil sands extraction technologies. This green technology utilizes a small, modular footprint, produces no greenhouse gases, requires no high temperatures, leaves only clean dry sand, and could be deployed to unlock heavy oil deposits located around the world.

The Company’s Asphalt Ridge mineral lease on 3,000-plus acres in northeastern Utah features a large contingent oil sands resource base with an estimated 87 million barrels of oil equivalent. In 2015, the company produced 10,000 barrels of oil from the Utah location and plans to increase production are underway. Utah holds over 32 billion barrels of undeveloped oil sands resources, which are also known as “oil-wet” deposits containing a mixture of sand and a dense, extremely viscous form of petroleum referred to as bitumen or tar. A recent upswing in developing domestic energy sources has intensified interest in technological advances such as Petroteq’s Liquid Extraction System.

The company’s Texas location includes an ownership interest (46%) in 7,000 acres under mineral leases with Accord, a Houston-based oil and gas exploration company that focuses on the development and recovery of heavy oil reserves and deposits. Two enhanced, licensed oil recovery technologies designed to increase oil recovery from more than 80 shallow oil wells on the property are expected to substantially improve the recovery rates of heavy oil deposits in this area. In both the Utah oil sands and traditional oil patch Texas project, the Company, its subsidiaries and Accord are using proprietary technologies, processes and methodologies to recover heavy oil, providing a distinct, strategic economic advantage for Petroteq Energy and its shareholders.

The Company continues to evaluate the development of other medium to heavy oil exploration, production and recovery projects on a global basis through a variety of structured agreements. These opportunities or other arrangements with private and governmental entities that utilize Petroteq Energy’s proprietary licensed technologies are expected to generate a significant return on investment.

The Company’s management team, board of directors and officers form an invaluable cross-section of industry leaders with extensive experience ranging from chemical engineering and solvent research, business development, international project management, entrepreneurial achievements, and senior management for global energy companies in North America and the Middle East. This impressive knowledge base covers both conventional and unconventional oil and gas projects and production, both in upstream and downstream industry sectors.

Petroteq Energy Inc. (PQEFF), closed the day's trading session at $0.75, off by 7.75%, on 114,008 volume with 98 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 171,012 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.2395/$1.8892.

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTCQB: FTSSF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight First Cobalt Corp. (FTSSF).

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX-V: FCC, ASX: FCC, OTCQX: FTSSF) today announces its management team will be participating in three upcoming conferences:

  • TD Battery Metal Round Table, London
    • President and CEO Trent Mell will available for one-on-one meetings June 18 & 19. Registration through TD Bank.
  • EV Momentum / Benchmark Minerals World Tour, Berlin
    • President and CEO Trent Mell will present on Wednesday, June 20
  • Benchmark Minerals World Tour, London

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTCQB: FTSSF), with headquarters in Canada, is the largest land owner in the Cobalt Camp in Ontario with control of over 10,000 hectares (nearly 25,000 acres) of prospective land and 50 historic cobalt/silver mines. The company’s assets include a mill and the only permitted cobalt extraction refinery in North America capable of producing battery material, providing an integrated solution for cobalt projects. First Cobalt began drilling in the historic Cobalt Camp in 2017 and seeks to build shareholder value through new discovery and growth opportunities.

First Cobalt’s 2018 $C7 million drilling program, which includes testing different styles of mineralized areas throughout the Cobalt Camp in more than 10 past-producing mines known to contain cobalt, is a significant expansion over its 2017 exploration activities. The company received positive test drill results from the Bellellen mine location, with early results confirming the presence of high-grade cobalt and nickel, prompting First Cobalt to increase its drilling program at that site. A prospecting sampling program of existing muckpiles around the camp’s historic mines, trenches, pits and surrounding bedrock could provide an early production scenario.

First Cobalt Corp. is moving quickly to leverage its potential against an economic background that estimates global consumption for refined cobalt is set to grow at an average rate of approximately 5 percent per annum for the next 10 years. The electric vehicle market, in particular, is driving this sector since more than 50 percent of the world’s current production of cobalt is used in the manufacture of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. The global lithium-ion battery market, as estimated by Zion Market Research, indicates the value at around USD $31 billion in 2016 and is expected to generate revenue of nearly USD $68 billion by end of 2022, growing at a compound annual growth rate of slightly above 17 percent.

First Cobalt is embracing innovation in the mining sector, utilizing a digital compilation of 100-plus years of mining and geological data spanning the historically prolific Cobalt Mining Camp’s lifespan. First Cobalt’s management team is also assessing the ability of artificial intelligence to accelerate the discovery cycle. As a member of the Mineral Exploration Research Centre (MERC) and Metal Earth Project, First Cobalt conducts regional geophysical surveys for geological interpretation of structures controlling cobalt-silver mineralization.

The company’s clear pathway to production and cash flow generation includes being one of only four fully permitted cobalt extraction refineries in Canada with significant material and processing infrastructure on site. With the price of cobalt increasing significantly and its importance in the growing battery market underpinning a strong long-term demand forecast, First Cobalt Corp. and its mining interests are primed for success.

First Cobalt Corp. President and CEO Trent Mell, a mining executive and capital markets professional with extensive international transactional experience, is joined by a team of reputable and seasoned deal-makers, mine builders and mine operators with decades of global experience in exploration, business development, geoscience, engineering and finance.

First Cobalt Corp. (FTSSF), closed the day's trading session at $0.5341, off by 5.42%, on 247,736 volume with 212 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 112,903 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.375/$1.3041.

BLOCKStrain Technology Corp. (TSXV: DNAX)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight BLOCKStrain Technology Corp. (DNAX).

Blockstrain Technology Corp. (TSX-V:DNAX) strategic investment highlighted in Internet of Things Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ITT) (OTC:INOTF) (FRANKFURT:71T) corporate update, detailing its recently accomplished milestones and current growth initiatives.

BLOCKStrain Technology Corp. (TSX.V: DNAX), a full-service software company headquartered in Vancouver, BC, Canada, has developed the first integrated blockchain platform that registers and tracks cannabis intellectual property (“IP”) from genome to sale. It is proprietary, immutable and cryptographically secure, thereby establishing a single source of truth for cannabis strains and their ownership.

With Canada set to legalize marijuana use for recreational purposes, and other jurisdictions following suit around the world, new challenges will emerge regarding the ability to provide a safe and legal inventory of a product that up until now was largely only available on the black market. Cannabis will be heavily tested and regulated by numerous regulatory bodies in Canada. The cannabis industry faces unique challenges that BLOCKStrain specifically helps it address, including:

  • Mandatory Testing: Through BLOCKStrain’s platform and lab-testing partners, the process is more efficient and streamlined, cutting the administrative burden in half and getting products to market faster;
  • DNA Based Product Validation: The underlying blockchain technology creates a genetic fingerprint that identifies and validates the product electronically so any participant on the platform, including consumers, can view and track what’s happening with that product from genome to sale;
  • Intellectual Property: Third, and perhaps most importantly, the BLOCKStrain platform protects the intellectual property of growers and breeders. This is important for the industry’s growth as products evolve and develop. If a craft grower, for example, creates a popular strain with unique characteristics, it will be able to protect its intellectual property by simply registering the strain’s genome with BLOCKStrain and locking that data into the blockchain. It will reside there forever and will be readily accessible in the event of future disputes, bringing a level of trust to the industry and ensuring licensing fees are paid to all players in the market.

VERIFICATION = CERTIFICATION

BLOCKStrain’s genetics verification process is authentic and incredibly effective. User groups register by creating an account with BLOCKStrain, which starts the process. Organizations and independent growers submit seeds, flower and post-extraction product for testing to a registered and approved testing facility, which then submits test results to BLOCKStrain. Pre-existing data of genetic cannabis strains can also be submitted via BLOCKStrain verification administrators, with those results being added to the user group’s blockchain account. Submissions are entered into BLOCKStrain, and the transaction is completed and recorded.

Each time an item is tested and verified by the network, a Registration Affidavit is auto-generated and given a unique “BLOCKStrain Address” along with a traceable QR Code. Producers, patients and consumers are able to not only verify the test but can also rate the product, write reviews and share opinions. This detail is stored within BLOCKStrain and, just like the test results, cannot be tampered with or modified. Verification and certification are earned by all parties for their participation.

SAFE CONSUMER SUPPLY

BLOCKStrain demystifies the seed-to-sale process for all relevant stakeholders including producers, distributors, shippers, government agencies and consumers by creating a repository of cannabis genomes on an immutable, shared ledger. Thousands of cannabis strains exist and cultivators are breeding new strains all the time. The proliferation of cannabis strains can prove problematic for consumers since there are more than 500 known chemical compounds in a single plant. Furthermore, since several dozens of these compounds have been identified as pharmacologically active, it becomes more and more difficult for consumers to know what they are purchasing.

It is for this reason that being able to quantify the genetics, potency and equivalencies among cannabis products is crucial to the future of legalized cannabis. The difference is not so much in the name or brand attached to the cannabis, but the DNA of the plant itself. BLOCKStrain ensures product integrity, safety, regulatory compliance, product licensing and authenticity – all vital elements for the emerging cannabis industry.  This technology also bolsters the process of meeting government regulatory standards by providing real-time visibility of industry operations to agencies assigned to enforce and regulate cannabis activity.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

BLOCKStrain allows for the defense of intellectual property rights for the grower with an authentic, verifiable chain of evidence embedded in the blockchain itself. Proof of ownership for a specific strain of cannabis is paramount in a multibillion dollar industry. Real life ownership disputes have already begun in the industry with legal battles underway. Unfortunately, the framework for resolving these disputes has yet to be defined and they are not likely to be resolved anytime soon.

Consumers and regulators alike want to know whether a cannabis product grown and sold at a local dispensary is safe and meets quality control standards. BLOCKStrain enhances trust of origin from genome-to-sale as cannabis flows through the supply chain, verifying critical steps in the process such as who is growing the plant, which seed is planted and where did it come from, whether pesticides were used, how much was grown, which tests are used to establish quality and potency, where the product is transported and how, and whether possession limits are meeting regulatory standards.

In summary, BLOCKStrain has developed the most comprehensive, secure and community-driven cannabis genetics archival platform for cannabis breeders and growers, large and small, to protect and release their varieties into the public domain, all while compensating and rewarding them for their contributions.

BLOCKStrain Technology Corp. (DNAX), closed the day's trading session at $0.97, off by 7.62%, on 282,330 volume. The stock's 52-week low/high is $0.10/$1.20.

NetworkNewsAudio announces the Audio Press Release (APR) titled "Supreme Court Decision Empowers States to Take Action on Sports Betting," featuring SinglePoint, Inc. (OTCQB: SING). To hear the NetworkNewsAudio version, visit http://nnw.fm/bKC8h. To read the original editorial, visit http://nnw.fm/QTb1Z.

SinglePoint, Inc. (SING) is a diversified holding company with operations in multiple industries and verticals including two high-performing market sectors: legal cannabis and cryptocurrencies. SinglePoint has grown from a full-service mobile technology provider to a recognizable brand with a diverse portfolio of undervalued subsidiaries with multiple revenue streams.

SinglePoint is researching opportunities where it can be an active participant by influencing the strategy and direction of high-potential companies whose verified assets offer attractive possibilities for shareholders. The company is guided by a visionary leadership team with extensive experience in technology, engineering, marketing and raising capital.

SinglePoint is bullish on the cannabis industry, bitcoin and blockchain technologies, which is evident in its recent acquisitions and joint-venture announcements. Recent SinglePoint key highlights include:

  • A joint venture with Smart Cannabis Corporation (OTC: SCNA) to license and market Smart Cannabis’ SMART APP. SMART APP enables cannabis growers to measure all aspects of cultivation, from soil nutrient levels to watering cycles and carbon dioxide content in the air. SMART APP will integrate SinglePoint’s bitcoin payment solution to enable growers to process safer and more secure transactions.
  • A joint venture with Global Payout (OTC: GOHE) will build on existing financial technology solutions developed by SinglePoint and Global Payout’s subsidiary MoneyTrac Technology, Inc., to fully optimize the delivery of mobile payment applications for domestic and international organizations.
  • A joint venture with AppSwarm (OTC: SWRM) to start development on a proprietary delivery application that will enable licensed cannabis delivery services and licensed dispensaries to safely make in-home cannabis deliveries.
  • Signed original “Shark Tank” member Kevin Harrington as company spokesman for an innovative, compatible virtual wallet to store any type of cryptocurrency. Harrington recently finished shooting a new national ad campaign featuring SinglePoint and the virtual wallet’s secure method of storing cryptocurrencies.
  • Entered into a letter of intent to acquire 100 percent of Bitcoin Beyond, a premier platform that enables merchants to accept bitcoin payments using existing web-enabled point-of-sale devices.
  • Through SING subsidiary, SingleSeed, the company will soon offer a proprietary cryptocurrency solution that links both cannabis merchants and consumers who seek to take advantage of bitcoin-powered transactions using debit and credit cards. In addition to making bitcoin-backed card purchases possible, the solution enables cannabis dispensaries to digitally track and manage their product inventories, performing tasks like uploading product data, photos and descriptions. The system deducts items automatically from a dispensary’s product listings when a purchase is made. While this fully KYC-AML compliant point-of-sale platform can be utilized for any other retail setting, it will fill a critical need in the underbanked cannabis industry as it continues to seek non-cash payment solutions outside of traditional banking circles.

SinglePoint CEO and founder Greg Lambrecht leads the company in its mission to capture opportunities through an aggressive expansion strategy across a broad range of assets. Lambrecht oversees all company operations including investor relations, leadership of the board of directors, and daily business activities. As the founder of PCI, a leading consumer product distribution company, Lambrecht negotiated agreements with the nation’s largest retail outlets and led PCI through a NASDAQ listed IPO, raising $10 million.

Eric Lofdahl, SinglePoint’s chief technology officer, has more than 20 years of experience in the technology sector including positions in software development, program management, complex system integration and engineering process definition. Prior to SinglePoint, Lofdahl worked at the Boeing Company where he led a team that successfully developed advanced wireless and satellite data products based on commercial technology for the U.S. Air Force.

SinglePoint President Wil Ralston is well known for his successful track record of building and maintaining great relationships with clients. Ralston graduated cum laude from the WP Carey School of Business at Arizona State University with a degree in Global Agribusiness and a specialization in Professional Golf Management. He is currently recognized by the Professional Golfers Association of America (PGA) as a Class A Professional.

SinglePoint, Inc. (SING), closed the day's trading session at $0.026, off by 4.24%, on 7,647,303 volume with 241 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 8,520,073 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0132/$0.415.
