Taranis Resources, Inc. (TNREF)

Small Cap Network, OTC Markets, All Stocks Today, Junior Mining Network, Stockhouse, Stockwatch, Wallmine, Wallet Investor, Equities, Street Insider, Investor Place, 24hgold, 4-Traders, Otc.Watch, Dividend Investor, and Northern Miner reported earlier on Taranis Resources, Inc. (TNREF), and we report on the Company as well, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Taranis Resources, Inc. engages in the acquisition, exploration, and development of precious and base metal deposits in Canada. An exploration stage company, it mainly explores for silver, gold, lead, zinc, and copper deposits. Incorporated in 2001, Taranis Resources has its corporate headquarters in Estes Park, Colorado. The Company’s shares trade on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB.

Taranis Resources holds a 100 percent interest in the Thor property, which consists of 27 crown granted mineral claims and 14 mineral tenures encompassing an area of 3,314 hectares situated in the Revelstoke mining district of British Columbia. Thor occurs within a 40 mile long belt of precious metal deposits that occur in three “belts”. The “Central Mineral Belt” is the most significant. It has seen virtually no exploration or development since WWII.

The Thor property is located close to infrastructure and an experienced mining workforce. There is considerable opportunity to develop satellite deposits. Thor belongs to a rare and unique collection of high-grade silver deposits, which are relatively small in size versus classic, massive sulphide deposits depleted in gold and silver. Thor currently hosts an NI 43-101 compliant high-grade precious/base metal Resource of more than 1M tonnes (2013).

In May, Taranis Resources updated exploration modeling of the Ridge Target at Thor. The Company has comprehensively reviewed all available exploration data in the area north of the Thor deposit. It has identified drill targets under a large topographic feature called “Thor’s Ridge”. The data review included surface rock sampling, diamond drilling, geological mapping, ground electromagnetic and magnetic surveys.

The surface sampling and drill hole sampling identified a new, separate horizon of mineralization that extends northwest under Thor’s Ridge. The prospective target under Thor’s Ridge has a strike length of 1,100 m and is gold-rich relative to base metal content. In addition, soil sampling completed by Westmin Resources in 1980 indicates that the prospective target horizon continues another 1,500 m to the north down to Mountain Goat Creek for a combined prospective strike length of 2,600 m.

Earlier this month, Taranis Resources provided more information regarding the 10,000 tonne bulk-sampling program at Thor. To date (June 6, 2019), attention has been focused on the extraction of the main minerals of interest (containing Ag, Au, Pb, Zn & Cu). Taranis has identified six other elements/metals susceptible to the gravity pre-concentration process and that have the potential to add value to the existing Ag, Au, Pb, Zn, Cu Resource at Thor documented by Roscoe Postle Associates (RPA) in 2013.

Of these six elements/metals, only one has been routinely analyzed during exploration drilling. This is antimony. Rubidium, indium, scandium, cesium and strontium require special analytical procedures and detection limits, which are outside the scope of normal exploration work for precious/base metal deposits. Therefore, Taranis Resources is planning to evaluate the concentration and disposition of these additional valuable elements during processing of the 10,000 tonne bulk sample. The design of the bulk sample is to be broadly representative of the main Thor deposit.

Taranis Resources, Inc. (TNREF), closed Friday's trading session at $0.05333, even for the day, on 25,000 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 12,450 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0325/$0.093.

It will do so while ensuring Gulf Keystone retains flexibility in the development of this large field.

It will bring the Company closer to the goal of completely financing its operating and development activities from production cash flows. A component of Gulf Keystone’s near-term strategy is to maintain production from Shaikan production facilities at 40,000 bopd, with a view to increasing to 55,000 bopd, and further beyond.

Gulf Keystone began trucking Shaikan crude oil a distance of 120 km in July of 2015 to Fishkhabour on the Turkish border for injection into the export pipeline to Ceyhan in Turkey.

Ocean Thermal Energy Corporation (CPWR)

InvestorsHub, MarketWatch, YCharts, 4-Traders, Insider Monkey, Tidal Energy Today, Stockhouse, OTC Markets, Barchart, Investopedia, Marketbeat, and Simply Wall St reported earlier on Ocean Thermal Energy Corporation (CPWR), and today we choose to report the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Ocean Thermal Energy Corporation constructs and operates clean hydrothermal energy plants around the word. The Company is a project developer for Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) plants that create renewable energy. It designs and develops deep-water hydrothermal clean-energy systems, which produce fossil-fuel free electricity through OTEC and environmentally friendly cooling through Seawater Air Conditioning (SWAC). OTCQB-listed, Ocean Thermal Energy is headquartered in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Seawater Air Conditioning (SWAC) technology generates air conditioning without the use of chemical agents. Acting alone, SWAC can reduce electricity usage by up to 90 percent in comparison to traditional air conditioning systems. When developed in association with OTEC plants, SWAC operates entirely without the use of fossil fuels.

OTEC leverages the temperature difference in the ocean between cold deep water and warm surface water in the tropics and subtropics to generate unlimited energy without the use of fossil fuels. In a closed cycle OTEC system, water flows through a large pipe and heat exchanger that heats a liquid with a low boiling point, such as ammonia. As the boiling ammonia produces steam, it turns a turbine generator to generate electricity.

A second pipe extracts cool deep water from the ocean that condenses the steam back to liquid form. As the ammonia is recycled, the process repeats, creating unlimited clean energy, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year (The Rankine Cycle). OTEC uses the solar energy from the ocean. No fossil fuels are used.

Ocean Thermal Energy has made significant progress on the development of its first OTEC EcoVillage. The Company has advanced toward the development of a SWAC system for the U.S. Military. The OTEC EcoVillage project comprises, in part, of an OTEC plant that will provide all power and water to approximately 400 residences. Additionally, it consists of a hotel, and shopping center, and models of sustainable agriculture, food production, and other economic developments.

Concerning the OTEC EcoVillage, the U.S. Virgin Islands’ Public Service Commission granted Ocean Thermal Energy regulatory approval for an OTEC plant. OTEC EcoVillage will be the first development in the world offering a net-zero carbon footprint.

Recently, Ocean Thermal Energy announced that it signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) to acquire an established, profitable, and experienced company in the heavy-commercial air conditioning business. The acquired company would bring considerable heavy-commercial air conditioning expertise and strong operational synergies. Furthermore, in August, Ocean Thermal Energy announced the appointment of three new members to its advisory board. These are Eric Moser, Founder and President of Moser Design Group; Julia Sanford, Founding Principal of Starr Stanford Design Associates; and Steve Mouzon, Principal at Mouzon Design.

DroneGuarder, Inc. (DRNG)

OTC Markets, Barchart, StreetRegister.com, Insider Financial, InvestorsHub, 4-Traders, and Emerging Growth.com reported on DroneGuarder, Inc. (DRNG), and today we report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.  

DroneGuarder, Inc.  centers on commercializing a drone enhanced home security system as a turnkey solution. The design of its DroneGuarder Mobile App  is to let users have peace of mind within arms length, whether they are in their home or not. Established in San Francisco in 2017,  DroneGuarder has its head office in London, England.

 The Company’s solution is app-based. It includes a drone, infrared camera, and an Android mobile app component. Upon an alarm being triggered, the DroneGuarder™ will immediately take off from a wireless charging pad.

 The DroneGuarder™ assists in protecting against intruders. Upon an intruder being detected on the sensor net,  one can have the drone fly to the event location. Once there,  one can use the built-in microphone to issue a harsh warning to scare away intruders. If that fails, the high-quality HD film captured of the intruder can be uploaded to the cloud and forwarded to law enforcement agencies.

 A variety of DJI drones is available and compatible with the DroneGuarder system. The design of the drones is to respond to commands from a user’s smart phone, and its native remote. This enables one to give it basic orders from anywhere.

DroneGuarder uses Swellpro as its drone supplier. DroneGuarder’s intention is to work jointly to embed its scanning AI image recognition technology into Swellpro’s SD5 drone platform. This will enable the DG Rescue to autonomously grid search for victims in a search area and alert the rescue crews through GPS location and streaming video where the victims are. DroneGuarder will be jointly developing DG Intruder with Swellpro using all the same technology, however it will be app based.

This past January, DroneGuarder announced the launch of its DG App on Google Play. The Company is enhancing the functionality for login and flight control including autonomously and controlled security sweeps. DroneGuarder secured new funding, which enables the Company to fund DG Rescue and DG Intruder product developments through to commercial release.

DroneGuarder believes that once both of its products are launched it will sell 5,000 to 10,000 drone units in the first year. The Company has its channels to market already in place, using Swellpro’s reseller network. Swellpro in 2017 sold roughly 6,000 drones.

Black Iron Inc. (TSX: BKI) (OTC: BKIRF) (GR: BIN)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Black Iron Inc. (TSX: BKI) (OTC: BKIRF) (GR: BIN).

Canadian iron ore exploration and development company Black Iron (TSX: BKI) (OTC: BKIRF) (GR: BIN) on Thursday announced that it is making good progress to secure essential land for its Shymanivske project construction. To view the full press release, visit: http://nnw.fm/o6WrM.

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.

The Market

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.

Shymanivske Project

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.

Management

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.

The Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX.V: FIRE) (OTC: SPRWF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (OTC: SPRWF).

The Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX: FIRE) (OTCQX: SPRWF) (FRA: 53S1), a leading Canadian cannabis producer, recently announced its launch of Supreme Heights, a new investment platform. Supreme Heights, established in London, will take advantage of opportunities within the United Kingdom and Europe’s CBD health and wellness sector.

Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX.V: FIRE) (OTC: SPRWF), is committed to providing premium brands and products that reflect the company’s knowledgeable customers, passionate employees, and culture of innovation. Supreme Cannabis’ mission is to grow the world’s best cannabis and become a leader in the global industry. The company calls its Toronto Venture Exchange stock symbol FIRE “a testament to our passion for cannabis and our obsession with quality.”

Supreme Cannabis believes the world is ready to follow Canada’s lead by ending the 100-year cannabis prohibition and, as Canada’s only coast-to-coast premium cannabis producer, the company sees itself at the center of this global shift.

In August 2018, Supreme Cannabis uplisted its shares to the to OTCQX market in the U.S., where the company trades under the ticker symbol SPRWF. The following month Supreme reported record Q4 revenues of CAD$3.55 million, a 71-percent increase over the previous quarter. Supreme Cannabis also recorded revenue of CAD$8.85 million for its fiscal year ended June 30, 2018, placing it among publicly traded Canadian cannabis companies with the highest reported revenue in their first four quarters of sales.

“As a result of the successful execution of our strategy, we have generated significant revenue growth both for the quarter and the year-end period,” Supreme Cannabis CEO Navdeep Dhaliwal stated in a news release. “We look forward to building on this growth as we expand domestically and internationally.”

The company’s growth strategy includes key industry agreements, such as its CAD$12 million supply agreement with Tilray Inc. (OTC: TLRY), a global leader in cannabis research, cultivation, processing and distribution. The agreement calls for Supreme to supply Tilray with dried cannabis for support of medical cannabis patients in Canada for the period of one year.

Another key component is the company’s wholly owned 7ACRES subsidiary. The 7ACRES cultivation facility, one of the first 40 federally licensed cannabis producers in Canada, is focused on building a core competency in scaled cannabis production, which will give 7ACRES the needed flexibility to maintain leadership in the industry as the Canadian market grows and matures. Though 7ACRES is Supreme Cannabis’ flagship brand and only currently operating business unit, the company will continue to identify new opportunities to grow its portfolio of companies and build innovative cannabis businesses throughout the world.

7ACRES operates from a 342,000-square-foot cultivation facility in Kincardine, Ontario, and has been federally licensed since 2016. Current capacity is 13,333 kilograms dried cannabis annually, with plans to ramp up production by mid-2019 to a rate of 50,000 kilograms per year.

Supreme Cannabis seeks to differentiate 7ACRES from other licensed cannabis producers by producing premium quality product sustainably at scale. “Craft quality, commercial scale” is a slogan the company uses, and the Kincardine greenhouse employs state-of-the-art technology and cultivation best practices to strive toward that goal. Supreme identifies the quality of the 7ACRES product as the company’s primary strength and says a shared “passion for the plant” is the driver of company culture. Six Canadian provinces have signed supply agreements with Supreme, a fact the company credits to the high quality of 7ACRES cannabis.

Its customers, Supreme Cannabis management says, are informed and discerning regarding cannabis, and they value a premium brand that respects their product knowledge. The company believes its high regard for customers, premium product quality, and mass cultivation capability has allowed Supreme Cannabis to emerge as Canada’s preeminent premium cannabis producer. In the Canadian cannabis market, the company has established 7ACRES as a premium brand that’s distributed coast-to-coast and commands premium pricing. The 7ACRES brand is already listed as premium cannabis product in all provinces that disclose their cannabis listing categories, and 7ACRES on average wholesales for up to one-third higher in price than other brands in the Canadian cannabis market.

To further its distribution, in the medical cannabis market Supreme Cannabis has partnered with several Canadian cannabis retailers including Aurora Cannabis, Emerald Health Botanicals, Namaste, Zenabis, and others. The company’s investment portfolio also includes an equity position and long-term global distribution partnership with Medigrow, based in Lesotho, targeting the export of medical cannabis oil for the international market.

Supreme Cannabis seeks to make the company an innovator in the cannabis sector regarding design of cultivation facilities and development of operation excellence metrics. The management team is confident that the 7ACRES flagship brand, the company’s proprietary technology and products, and the company’s culture of passion for cannabis will deliver consistent long-term shareholder value.

Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (OTC: SPRWF), closed Friday's trading session at $1.20, even for the day, on 140,943 volume with 239 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 361,170 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.85/$2.039.

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Geyser Brands Inc. (TSX.V: GYSR).

Geyser Brands (TSX.V: GYSR), through its acquisition target Solace Management Group Inc., recently announced an innovative hemp-infused, freeze-dried pet food. The company plans to utilize NanoFusion technology in the product’s development. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/9WQuI.

Geyser Brands Inc. (TSX.V: GYSR) is a consumer healthcare company that builds and markets some of the world's most loved cannabis products and brands in the nutraceutical, cosmetics, food and beverage and pet sectors. Using its proprietary nanotechnology formulation, the company delivers creams, beverages, baked goods and tincture formulations with superior bioavailability and water solubility.

NanoFusion Technology

The efficacy of most hemp?products is restricted as the insoluble nature of the molecules prevents most of the product from permeating the skin or entering the body system. Geyser Brands solves this insolubility problem with an advanced delivery system that quickly and efficiently transports therapeutic agents directly to the bloodstream for maximum absorbency.

Made with all-natural materials, NanoFusion technology offers an array of advantages: enhances penetration for deeper skin penetration; improves the transport of active ingredients for site-specific targeting; delivers active ingredients across cell membranes for release within the cell; provides longer shelf-life and stability of molecules.

Operations

Geyser Brands operates a 7,000-square-foot facility in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, where its initial cannabis cultivation generated the first revenues out of the company's cultivation license granted in October 2018. Geyser Brands is approved as a licensed producer in compliance with Health Canada standards, which allows the company to pursue its processing and sales license. Obtaining this license will enable the company to extend its products and brands into the regulated Canadian cannabis market and directly to the consumer medical market.

Geyser Brands's integrated production chain and formulation lab develops innovative products using high-quality hemp and CBD for healthy lifestyle brands while its R&D lab produces product formulations designed to enhance bio-availability of hemp and CBD and shelf stability while maintaining all-natural ingredients and ensuring premium quality.

Geyser Brands will continue to seek opportunities to invest into the research and development of unique high-quality proprietary strains and technologies that target specific health-related conditions such as pain and inflammation reduction, insomnia, digestive issues and other commonly known ailments.

Growing Portfolio

Among the brand formulations in Geyser Brand's portfolio are:

  • Apothecary all-natural Hemp Terpene Pain Cream with optimal skin permeation
  • Prohibition Cold Brew Mocha designed with water soluble hemp molecules
  • Apothecary health products created to deliver fast-acting and high bioavailability in a spray formulation
  • Baked hemp infused pet products, designed to alleviate anxiety and pain, created with NanoFusion for dosage control

He formerly was also a director of Indigo Sky Capital Corp. and has been the CFO and a director of the Company since 2016 and Corporate?Secretary of the Company since 2017.

Sproutly Canada, Inc. (OTCQB: SRUTF) (CSE: SPR) (FRA: 38G)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Sproutly Canada, Inc. (SRUTF).

Sproutly Canada (CSE: SPR) (OTCQB: SRUTF) (FRA: 38G), a company engaged in developing and bringing to market cannabis products, recently announced its first commercial sale of cannabis flower in Canada (http://nnw.fm/HAmf9). To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/Kf1ax.

Sproutly Canada, Inc. (OTCQB: SRUTF) (TSX.V: SPR) (FRA: 38G) is developing and bringing to market cannabis consumer products with a focus on beverages. The company’s core mission is to become the leading supplier of water-soluble cannabis solutions and bio-natural oils for brands in the emerging cannabis beverage and edibles market.

To make this happen, Sproutly acquired Infusion Biosciences to bring to market a patent-pending Aqueous Phytorecovery Process (APP) technology, a fundamental paradigm shift within the cannabis industry. Replacing traditional water-compatible solutions with true natural water solubility improves the body’s ability to utilize cannabinoids, making the effect of the cannabis almost immediate.

This revolutionary process doesn’t alter the cannabis compounds and provides an onset time and offset time that mimics the same effects as inhaled marijuana. That means consumers may feel effects in five minutes or less and be free from the desired effect in approximately 90 minutes—a vastly different ingestion pattern than current methods. In addition, the water-based cannabinoids can be mixed with other liquids and stay dissolved in those liquids. The application of water-soluble cannabis infusions has potential to be widespread in both medicinal and recreational cannabis sectors, giving Sproutly a distinctive edge in a market with untapped potential.

Sproutly’s business model is focused on processing rather than cultivating, which means its success is not constrained to growing its own cannabis. The company does own a Toronto-based, ACMPR-licensed facility designed and built with a focus on cultivating pharmaceutical-grade cannabis to produce and formulate the first natural, truly water-soluble cannabis solution. Its water-soluble ingredients and bio-natural oils will deliver revolutionary brands to international markets that are searching for well-defined commercial products.

Sproutly’s entrance in the cannabis market is perfectly timed as cannabis is moving towards mainstream acceptance. Potential users are, however, interested in consuming cannabis products as drinks and using it as oils rather than smoking. The potential cannabis beverage market is staggering, and with Sproutly owning the exclusive rights to APP technology in Canada, Australia, Jamaica, Israel and the entire European Union, the company is looking at significant international expansion opportunities.

Sproutly plans to capitalize on these international opportunities by executing on partnerships with local and globally established consumer brands to leverage their existing customer bases, expand brand loyalty, and assist with marketing and support distribution networks to deliver scientific breakthroughs with speed and efficiency?worldwide.

Management

Sproutly believes that talent drives growth. The company is committed to bringing together the best and brightest minds in the cannabis space to help with their mission to disrupt the global beverage and consumables market.

Global expansion is a key part of Wildflower’s strategy with initial plans aimed at specific international markets where regulatory hurdles are less restrictive.

In December 2018, Wildflower began on-demand, legal and licensed cannabis delivery services to adult consumers in the Los Angeles area and has hired dozens of full-time delivery drivers to accommodate this unmet need. Wildflower has partnered with leading technology and logistics company Eaze.com to help route deliveries efficiently, manage inventory and comply with California law. Providing legal, licensed delivery services helps to ensure that all adults including those with mobility challenges and limited access to transportation services can purchase high quality, legal cannabis products.

Wildflower’s direct-to-consumer online store sales have shown an organic growth. The Company recently achieved over 300 percent growth in online sales since January 2018 with annualized revenues exceeding $1 million for online sales only, marking the ninth consecutive quarter of increased revenue.

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

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

Oil and gas industry technology developer Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTC: PQEFF) is putting its revolutionary heavy oil recovery process on display with a seven-minute video tour of its facilities in Utah’s eastern desert to showcase what the company expects to be the best thing for domestic fuel production since fracking provided U.S. markets with a lower-cost alternative to conventional drilling operations.

Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTCQX: 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 sands exploration and production on mineral leases in Vernal, Utah, and in expanding production capacity at its Asphalt Ridge heavy oil extraction facility in Utah.

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 2,500-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 Clean Oil Recovery Technology (CORT) System.

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 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. 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 Chairman 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 Inc. (PQEFF), closed Friday's trading session at $0.2098, off by 0.10%, on 452,423 volume with 104 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 245,812 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.207/$1.43.

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.

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight 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 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.
