EnviroLeach Technologies, Inc. (EVLLF)
MarketWatch, Stockhouse, GuruFocus, 4-Traders, OTC Markets, Barchart, Investopedia, Investors Hub, Dividend Investor, Marketwired, Streetwise Reports and Stock Market Revolution reported on EnviroLeach Technologies, Inc. (EVLLF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
OTCQB-listed, EnviroLeach Technologies, Inc. is a technology enterprise and near-term gold producer. It engages in the development and commercialization of environmentally-friendly formulas and technologies for the treatment of materials in the mining and E-Waste sectors. The Company’s goal is to become a top gold producer via the “Urban-Mining” of end-of-life electronics and be a major player in the extraction of precious metals in the traditional mining space. Established in 2016, EnviroLeach Technologies is headquartered in Burnaby, British Columbia.
Employing its proprietary non-cyanide, non-acid based process, the Company extracts precious and base metals from ores, concentrates, and E-Waste using only Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved additives. EnviroLeach’s strategic global partners include Jabil (JBL), Mineworx Technologies (MWXRF), and Element Six (part of the De Beers Group of Companies).
EnviroLeach Technologies developed an innovative, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly alternative to cyanide and strong-acid based processes now utilized for the extraction of precious metals from mineral ores, concentrates and E-Waste. This process is similar to the standard cyanide vat leaching circuits used today. However, it is much safer and simpler. The patent-pending EnviroLeach formula consists of combining five non-toxic, FDA approved dry ingredients with ambient temperature water.
The oxidizing reagent is the result of selective inorganic electrochemistry that results in the dissolution of the precious metals into an aqueous solution. This is followed by the extraction of the resulting gold complex employing conventional methods such as electrowinning, carbon absorption or precipitation.
The operation is simple. It does not require pressure, elevated temperatures, complex process circuits, intensive gas monitoring or expensive detoxification systems.
In 2017, EnviroLeach Technologies and Mineworx Technologies successfully advanced their proven chemical formulas and mechanical processes with a number of additional proprietary and patent-pending breakthroughs. The new discoveries include major enhancements to the proven EnviroLeach E-Waste process regarding improved leach kinetics, improved recoveries, metal complex stability, element selectivity, metal precipitation and the reusability of the primary solution.
Furthermore, the two companies completed a series of successful pilot scale tests throughout 2017. They completed the design, engineering and construction of the first production scale, 10 tonne per day E-Waste processing plant that was installed on-schedule and on-budget at the Memphis, Tennessee facility.
EnviroLeach Technologies, Inc. (EVLLF), closed Thursday's trading session at $0.8987, up 4.50%, on 17,150 volume with 19 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 28,647 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.246/$1.8554.

It reported a Gross Profit of R733 million for the period, in comparison to a Gross Loss of R139 million for the prior comparable period.
Impala’s improved operating performance resulted primarily from efficiencies at Impala Rustenburg, a strong operational turnaround at Marula, and a sustained performance from Zimplats.

Deer Horn Capital, Inc. (GODYF)
Speculating Stocks, CentralCharts, Stockwatch, OTC Markets, MarketWatch, Stockhouse, InvestorsHangout, InsiderTracking, Wallstreet Online, Northern Miner, Investing News Alerts, and HighRisingStocks reported on Deer Horn Capital, Inc. (GODYF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Deer Horn Capital, Inc. engages in the acquisition, exploration, and evaluation of mineral properties. The Company’s vision is to develop Canada’s first silver-gold-tellurium (Ag-Au-Te) mine at the Deer Horn Project in north-central British Columbia. The Deer Horn Property has been recognized by First Solar, Inc. as one of the world's top four primary tellurium properties. Deer Horn Capital has its corporate headquarters in Delta, British Columbia.
The Company’s business strategy is to grow Deer Horn through partnering with industry leaders in “critical” or “green" minor metals extraction, manufacturing, supply and research and also with relevant governmental and educational institutions. Deer Horn’s vision is also to develop the Deer Horn Property’s other mineralized zones, which contain tungsten, copper, bismuth, lead, zinc and molybdenum.
The Company will develop the Deer Horn Project as a small-scale mine with a minimal environmental footprint and First Nations sanction and participation. The Project is in north-central British Columbia, 36 km south of the prolific Huckleberry Cu-Mo mine. The Project size is 5,133 ha (51.33 sq km) and its status is advanced exploration.
The Deer Horn Project has an NI 43-101 (National Instrument 43-101) compliant tellurium resource. The Project consists of gold & silver with high tellurium grades. Tellurium is classified as a “critical” or “green minor” metal. Tellurium represents one of earth’s rarest elements. Along with silver, it is a key constituent in the manufacture of solar panels.
At the Deer Horn Project, significant upside is in tungsten and copper porphyry potential. Exploration so far has outlined a number of important mineral zones across 2.4 kilometers. These remain open for expansion in three directions.
Yesterday, Deer Horn Capital reported positive results from an independent Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) at its Deer Horn gold-silver-tellurium polymetallic property in north-central British Columbia. The full PEA was prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 regulations. The PEA recommended infill and tightly-spaced step-out diamond drilling centered on upgrading and expanding the existing high-grade resource.
Mr. Tyrone Docherty, Deer Horn Capital’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We’ve engineered Deer Horn for low capital costs and rapid payback in a well-established mining jurisdiction. Our strategy is to put the project into production quickly and establish its viability initially on a small scale. Since the PEA was calculated on only 450 meters of a 2.4-kilometer-long mineralized system, we believe we can explore and expand the operation over time using mining cash flow and exploit the knowledge of the system that we gain as we mine.”
Deer Horn Capital, Inc. (GODYF), closed Thursday's trading session at $0.2909, even for the day. The average volume for the last 60 days is 327 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.025/$0.2909.

Alacer Gold Corp. (ALIAF)
MarketWatch, TradingView, Investing, Silverstocker, InvestorPlace, GoldStockData, NorthernMiner, 4-Traders, Investopedia, OTC Markets, The Street, MiningFeeds, Information Vine, and Penny Stock Tweets reported on Alacer Gold Corp. (ALIAF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Alacer Gold Corp. is a foremost intermediate gold mining company headquartered in Denver, Colorado. The Company has an 80 percent interest in the world-class Çöpler Gold Mine in Turkey operated by Anagold Madencilik Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. The remaining 20 percent is owned by Lidya Madencilik Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. Alacer Gold is pursuing initiatives to enhance value beyond the present mine plan. Alacer Gold’s shares trade on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB.
The Company’s main emphasis is to take advantage of its cornerstone Çöpler Mine and strong balance sheet to maximize portfolio value, maximize free cash flow, and minimize project risk. The Çöpler Mine is located in east-central Turkey in the Erzincan Province.
The Çöpler Gold Mine produced 119,036 ounces of gold during 2016. Çöpler has considerable Probable Reserves of 4 million recoverable ounces and Measured and Indicated Resources of 6 million ounces of contained gold. These provide the basis for Çöpler’s 20 year mine life.
At present, the Mine is an open-pit, heap-leach operation producing low-cost gold from oxide ore. Over the life of the present heap-leach project, roughly 76 percent of the gold contained in the oxide ore is expected to be recovered.
In May of 2016, Alacer Gold’s Board of Directors approved full construction of the Sulfide Project at the Çöpler Gold Mine, with first gold pour expected in Q3 of 2018. The Çöpler orebody contains refractory sulfide ore. This necessitates a different processing solution than heap-leaching to extract the gold.
The Sulfide Project construction is over 75 percent complete, under budget, and on course for first gold production in Q3 2018. The expectation is that the Sulfide Project will deliver long-term growth with strong financial returns and adds 20 years of production at the Çöpler Gold Mine. The Sulfide Project will bring Çöpler’s remaining life-of-mine gold production to greater than 2 million ounces at All-in Sustaining Costs averaging $645 per ounce.
This week, Alacer Gold announced full-year 2017 production results, unaudited full-year cost results, and 2018 production and cost guidance.
Mr. Rod Antal, President and Chief Executive Officer of Alacer Gold, stated, “I am pleased to report that we produced 168,1631 ounces of gold at unaudited All-in Sustaining Costs (AISC) of $685 per ounce in 2017, meeting our original production and beating AISC cost guidance for the year. The production initiatives generated through our operational excellence program were very successful, delivering 64,542 ounces in the fourth quarter, making it the strongest quarter of the year… 2018 production guidance is 120,000 to 190,000 ounces from Çöpler oxides and sulfides. We also expect initial mining at a new oxide deposit, Çakmaktepe, later this year.”
Alacer Gold Corp. (ALIAF), closed Thursday's trading session at $1.84, up 0.58%, on 2,225 volume with 6 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 22,697 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $1.53/$2.00.

Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTC: PQEFF)
Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSXV: PQE; OTC: PQEFF; Frankfurt: A2DYWC) (“Petroteq” or the “Company”) was pleased to announce today that it has acquired additional acreage in the resource rich Uintah Basin. Also today, NetworkNewsWire released a report on the company detailing how PQEFF is fueling rising expectations regarding its resource potential, as its oil sands extraction project in Utah continues to evolve.
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.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG)
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG), a Nevada corporation specializing in state-of-the-art financial services structured to serve the medical cannabis and banking industries, announced that its subsidiary, SpeedyGrow, was featured on KREX’s news story about CBD and hemp. KREX is the CBS-affiliated television station in Grand Junction, Colorado. The news segment may be viewed at this link: http://www.westernslopenow.com/news/local-news/special-report-hemp-the-grand-valley-s-new-cash-crop-/1194907015.
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG), headquartered in Cheyenne, Wyoming, is a first-tier merchant processing cannabis industry pioneer, offering one of the first and only comprehensive card processing operations of its kind to serve the state-sanctioned medical marijuana industry. The company’s state of the art system, which also tracks sales and tax collection, and eliminates the need to deal in cash-only transactions.
Through its robust, closed-loop merchant processing system, the company’s unique “StateSourced” proprietary system enables authorized operation under FinCEN parameters and complies with all regulatory frameworks. StateSourced is tailored to deliver full-spectrum merchant processing services, providing the convenience of modern commercial card processing resources and making it the first operation of its kind geared to the legal cannabis industry.
StateSourced is not a prepaid or gift card, which is an important variable for merchants since standard banking institutions have not offered this form of payment processing to the legal cannabis industry. Federal law still considers marijuana illegal under the Controlled Substances Act, although 29 states and the District of Columbia have legalized the plant either for medicinal or recreational uses or both. This restriction has kept financial institutions at bay since most banks are federally insured and haven’t been inclined to venture into the nascent industry.
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions is able to offer its StateSourced card on a state-by-state basis where the card can be used in purchasing product from a legal, authorized vendor, providing a much-needed option for consumers and businesses alike. In another first, the company is collaborating with First Bitcoin Capital Corporation to integrate First Bitcoin’s cryptocurrency ($Weed) with Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions’ StateSourced payment gateway. This collaboration will allow state-licensed marijuana establishments across the nation to accept both StateSourced debit cards and cryptocurrencies such as WeedCoin and Bitcoin.
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions president and CEO Jeremy Roberts and his executive team are working with state lawmakers to introduce legislation in an effort to address the growing problems in banking for the medical cannabis industry. For companies in the emerging legal cannabis industry, where retail and non-retail transactions such as vendor payments and payroll are almost exclusively paid for with cash, the solutions offered by StateSourced can help businesses avoid the inherent risks associated with a cash-intensive sector. Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions has also signed its first StateSourced contract with a Las Vegas-based vertically integrated marijuana establishment.
“We’ve completed our transition from development stage to revenue stage,” says Roberts. “We have just started our business development efforts and the market is responding very well. We anticipate having many more, similar releases.”
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions provides end-to-end management across multiple systems for medicinal marijuana operations. The company solves the fragmentation problem experienced by many of these rapidly growing companies by identifying tools that are important to dispensaries and customizing those tools to meet the specific needs of this unique industry.
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG), closed the day's trading session at $0.0465, up 4.49%, on 618,793 volume with 82 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 576,934 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0161/$0.092.

ABcann Global (TSX.V: ABCN) (OTCQB: ABCCF)
ABcann Global Corporation (TSX-V:ABCN) (“ABcann” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the results of its annual general and special meeting of shareholders held on June 5, 2018 (the “Meeting”).
ABcann Global (TSX.V: ABCN) (OTCQB: ABCCF) is a globally licensed, cost efficient producer of premium quality, organic, standardized medicinal cannabis. One of the earliest licensed medical marijuana producers under Canada’s federally-controlled Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR), ABcann has five years of operating experience in the burgeoning medical marijuana space through its flagship operation, ABcann Medicinals, Inc. The company recently received its Health Canada license to produce medical cannabis oils and is working toward production of saleable, extracted, finished products that will lead to a final inspection allowing sales of its oils.
“Receipt of the license to produce cannabis oils is a major milestone in our pursuit to provide our medical cannabis patients with additional product formats that can be precisely dosed. The expansion and innovation of our product lines are a top priority for the Company as we continue to serve the needs of our customers, and we anticipate strong demand for our cannabis oil products,” ABcann Global CEO Barry Fishman said.
ABcann Global owns and operates a fully functioning 14,500 square foot facility in Napanee, Ontario, which is being doubled in size to produce 1,400 kg of cannabis per year. The company’s expansion plans include adding a seasonal greenhouse and a hybrid, multipurpose facility, capable of producing 31,000 kg of cannabis per year between the two facilities, to be constructed on 65 acres it already owns near the Napanee facility. This additional location is properly zoned with existing infrastructure in place for an eventual 1.2 million square feet of production space.
ABcann has built a reputation over the years for its best-in-class standardized approach to growing cannabis that includes the absence of pesticides and a computer monitored growing technique that provides a consistent, pharmaceutical-grade with high yields. The company’s custom, scalable growing chambers with proprietary lighting can be replicated anywhere in the world, leading to lower production costs. This technique, which the company calls the ABcann Advantage, has helped it record a customer retention rate of 94.7 percent alongside 30 percent month-over-month customer growth. When combined with ABcann’s current yield rate, which it has measured at roughly 100 percent greater than the industry average, the company has constructed a strong foundation upon which to build a sizable presence in the global cannabis industry.
This global growth potential is illustrated by ABcann’s partnership with Israel’s Syqe Medical, producer of the world’s first selective-dose pharmaceutical grade medicinal plant inhaler. After visiting ABcann’s production facility, Perry Davidson, founder of Syqe Medical, noted that the company’s production technologies put it “in a class with the best in the world” in its ability to produce standardized pharmaceutical grade cannabis.
ABcann’s recent acquisition of Harvest Medicine Inc. represents further progress toward the company’s goal of becoming a vertically integrated medical cannabis company. Harvest Medicine is one of the fastest growing medical cannabis clinics in Canada – adding over 1,200 new patients monthly from a single location – with an aggressive expansion plan and a patient-focused approach that perfectly aligns with ABcann’s philosophy of quality and innovation.
ABcann’s seasoned management team, board of directors and advisory board features well over a century of combined industry experience. Fishman, who has over 20 years of experience as a business leader, previously served as CEO of both Teva Canada and Taro Canada, as vice president of marketing at Eli Lilly Canada, and as past chair of the Canadian Generic Manufacturers Association. He most recently served as CEO of international specialty pharmaceutical company Merus Labs.
Notably, ABcann also has access to the ‘Father of Cannabis Research’, Raphael Mechoulam, PhD, through its board of advisors. An organic chemist and professor of medicinal chemistry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Mechoulam was the first scientist to isolate both cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). He has received more than 25 prestigious academic awards, including the Rothschild Prize in Chemical Sciences and Physical Sciences in 2012.
With more than 65 acres of growth capacity, a healthy cash balance to fund upcoming construction efforts, steady sales growth, industry-leading yield rates and an established operations team in place, ABcann is well positioned to compete in the rapidly expanding Canadian cannabis industry and beyond.
ABcann Global (ABCCF), closed the day's trading session at $1.21, off by 0.82%, on 442,809 volume with 350 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 260,155 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.65/$3.2929.

BLOCKStrain Technology Corp. (TSXV: DNAX)
BLOCKSTRAIN TECHNOLOGY CORP. (TSXV: DNAX) (the "Company" or "BLOCKStrain") is pleased to announce that cannabis pioneer Derek Pedro has agreed to join the Company's Advisory Board.
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 $0.90, off by 5.26%, on 1,003,000 volume. The stock's 52-week low/high is $0.10/$1.20.

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTCQX: FTSSF)
NetworkNewsAudio announces the Audio Press Release (APR) titled "Cobalt on Critical List as US Moves toward Mineral Independence," featuring First Cobalt Corp. (TSXV: FCC) (OTCQX: FTSSF). To hear the NetworkNewsAudio version, visit http://nnw.fm/5K9Uh. To read the original editorial, visit http://nnw.fm/Mc3DW.
First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTCQX: 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 $0.55156, off by 5.13%, on 431,847 volume with 120 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 129,580 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.375/$1.3041.
