A new social sports betting platform to be developed by Victory Square’s wholly owned subsidiary, FansUnite Media Inc. As a social sports data platform, FansUnite relies on robust data to allow members of its community to engage with like-minded individuals by collaborating, discussing, and predicting the winners of sporting events with a free virtual currency. The integration of blockchain technology into FansUnite’s social sports data platform could also lead to blockchain initiatives developed by other divisions and subsidiaries of Victory Square.

Integral to the FansUnite platform is the introduction of FAN Tokens, an in-game currency purchased with the cryptocurrency Ethereum that token holders can use to place wagers. FansUnite members will be able to earn FAN Tokens through participation in any number of networking effects identified in the company’s Bounty program.

American Helium (TSX.V: AHE) (OTC: AHELF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight American Helium (AHELF).

Resource exploration company American Helium (TSX.V: AHE) (OTC: AHELF) is focused on the global growth of technology-driven demand for helium and the development of high grade helium resources in North America. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/Aln5d.

American Helium (TSX.V: AHE) (OTC: AHELF) is a resource exploration company focused on the global growth of technology-driven demand for helium and the development of high grade helium resources in North America. Through such activities, it strives to contribute to the global helium inventory and become an industry leading producer.

The Canadian helium exploration and development company is led by an experienced management and technical team. The Company is currently focused on three properties in prolific areas for Helium exploration.

Recently, the company executed an agreement with Holbrook Basin Energy LLC of Golden, CO to undertake an exploration drill program in Arizona. The Arizona project location is in the “Four Corners” area where the States of Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona meet, and in the helium productive Holbrook Basin, a well-established helium production district where concentrations of the gas are as high as 10%. The area has good potential for additional discovery and production. The abundant nature of the region has led to anecdotal statements over the years that “Arizona is the Saudi Arabia of helium.”

The Company holds 100 percent working interest and 87.5 percent net revenue interest in 12 federal leases at its Bruin Point property spanning across 17,000 acres in the Greater Uintah Basin, Carbon County, Utah (the Carbon County project). American Helium is undertaking preparations for the drilling of an exploration well, and as part of that process a Notice of Staking (NOS) has been filed with the offices of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).

Evaluation is currently ongoing to determine potential additional acquisitions in regions that are known for their helium production. The Company is planning exploration wells with the prospect of capturing new resources and improving the Company’s market position during the year.

The Company has also executed a project agreement with Yankee Resources LLC of Golden, CO and has appointed LoneTree Energy & Associates LLC to acquire certain acreage in SE Colorado. The project consists of two parts. The first objective is to re-drill two wells that have proven helium resources. Both were plugged and abandoned in the mid-nineties, offering the potential for near term production. The second part of the project will offer an exploration focus through the acquisition of land and a subsequent 3D seismic survey aimed at further defining areas of likely helium accumulations.

The company set up a Denver satellite office aimed at overseeing the regional operations in Utah better and at facilitating expansion in SE Colorado. Company President and CEO Frank Jacobs, a petroleum engineer with 35+ years of operational experience, will oversee U.S.-based operations.

Global helium demand is driven by a number of different industries. Primarily, the military, healthcare, nuclear, aviation and electronics. A colorless, odorless and non-toxic gas, helium is lighter than air and it has the lowest boiling point of all elements. This property makes it essential for a wide variety of tech based applications.

The U.S. ranks as the largest producer and consumer of helium. North America accounts for approximately a third of the world’s helium consumption (2.6 billion cubic feet of helium per year). The world’s annual consumption of helium is set at eight billion cubic feet per year. As far as production goes, the U.S. is responsible for 55 percent of the global helium supply. Qatar, Algeria and Russia come next.

The fact that production efforts have been centralized and focused in just a few countries has long been a source of industry concern. “The concentration of production among a handful of countries will continue to be the leading driver of uncertainty of helium supply and price volatility. We are working to identify, explore and place into production helium assets. With the right assets and the necessary funding we are confident we can achieve this objective ,” Frank Jacobs said.

The price of helium has doubled since 2010 because this unique gas cannot be substituted in its applications. In addition, a Qatar production blockage has had a massive negative impact on the helium supply. In the summer of 2017, Qatar’s RasGas closed down both of its plants, responsible for approximately 32 percent of the global helium demand. This shift has contributed to highly favorable supply and demand fundamentals for the remaining market players.

Experts predict that the demand for the gas will continue to grow in the years to come. The global helium market set to exceed $1.5 billion by 2020, advancing at a compound annual growth rate of 9 percent, according to Technavio analysts. Over 20 percent of the global helium demand is for healthcare applications. MRI machines are being installed in hospitals more frequently than ever before, potentially increasing the demand for helium in the medical industry. Innovative aerospace projects and technical applications are also expected to elevate the helium market forecasts in the years to come. Large corporations such as Google and Netflix have both been buying up significant amounts of helium, as the gas can increase the storage capacity of hard drives while also bringing down power consumption.

Additional information about the American Helium research and exploration activities will become available in the months to come. The company is positioning itself to capture the numerous opportunities stemming from increasing helium prices and the growing global demand.

American Helium (AHELF), closed the day's trading session at $0.2492, up 9.30%, on 28,998 volume with 22 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 18,541 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.2271/$0.77.

DeepMarkit Corp. (TSX-V: MKT) (OTCQB: MKTDF) is a patent pending gamification technology company inventing new ways to engage consumers and other audiences. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/Afb06.

DeepMarkit Inc. (TSX-V: MKT) (OTCQB: MKTDF), based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, is a patent pending gamification technology company inventing new ways to engage consumers and other audiences. The Company’s proprietary promotions platform – “Gamify” – enables businesses and agencies to create branded games that incentivize consumers, thus driving sales, capturing data and generating leads. The DeepMarkit platform integrates next-gen gamification engagement mechanics with interactive advertising industry standards and powerful visuals, including 3-D images. Customers may choose from both free and paid solutions suitable for campaigns of all sizes, targeting multiple channels on the web, mobile and social media.

A team of seasoned, passionate gaming executives, led by president and CEO Darold Parken, has worked together for more than 15 years developing games and gaming systems that are still used today by some of the largest gaming companies in the world. This accomplished executive team founded Chartwell Technologies, acquired in 2011 by Amaya Gaming, which now is known as The Stars Group (Nasdaq: TSG) with a market cap of over $5 billion.

Gamify offers a selection of easily customizable gaming apps featuring a customer’s branded e-store in addition to tailored landing pages, technical support, real-time analytics, data collection and an engaging marketing campaign. Gamify’s patent-pending app comes complete with unique user incentives that draw consumers in with games and prizes, which in turn engages shoppers, turning them into buyers and building brand loyalty.

The gamification market is rapidly expanding and projected to be worth $22 billion by 2022, with a CAGR of 41 percent. DeepMarkit is the only publicly listed company focused solely on this exploding market that embraces any size of business, from the mom-and-pop shops to the blue-chip giants. DeepMarkit’s management team knows that increasing a customer’s conversion rate by a mere 1 percent has the potential to double revenue, which is why Gamify’s app and its ability to transform simple shoppers into engaged buyers is so compelling.

“Our marketing platform enables customers to build branded games that incentivize audiences, generate leads, and drive sales. Businesses need a way to stand out from the crowd,” Parken states in an investor’s video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=97hJoRKR92k). “DeepMarkit’s gamification platform gives customers that way to stand out and it’s a way that they can afford. That’s the strength of our platform. For a relatively small amount of money, any business can create a very powerful, high quality customer engagement using gamification.”

DeepMarkit recently entered into a joint marketing agreement with ITN International (“ITN”), a global leader in trade show data capture and analytics. The agreement will enable the 1.5 million exhibitors at the 125-plus yearly events serviced by ITN to purchase a customizable campaign with prize delivery and branded games that can be used in collaboration with ITN’s lead retrieval solutions. DeepMarkit and ITN are currently integrating DeepMarkit’s patent-pending gamification platform directly into ITN’s exhibitor portal.

“We started DeepMarkit because we have a passion for games and we believe in the power of games, not just for entertainment but more importantly as a tool for business,” Parken said. “DeepMarkit is a gamification company. What we mean by that is that we create innovative ways to use games for business purposes. Games to generate customer leads, games to promote products, deliver rewards, build brand awareness and customer loyalty.”

Selected as the winner of the New Company/Product pitch competition at the Retail Global 2017 Conference held in Las Vegas, Gamify’s platform has also attracted a $1.5 million investment from Allstate International LLC in Hong Kong. The investment gives Allstate a 10 percent stake in DeepMarkit and a great opportunity to bring the Gamify platform into the burgeoning Asian gaming market.

DeepMarkit Inc. (MKTDF), closed the day's trading session at $0.0364, even for the day. The average volume for the last 60 days is 27,823 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0293/$0.12.

The Las Aguilas property, which is 100% owned by Marifil, is noted as one of the largest cobalt properties in Argentina. Other noteworthy properties in the company’s portfolio include the Toruel copper-silver property, with more than two contiguous claims, and additional potash properties in Punta Colorada, Pedernal and El Carmen.

Marifil’s sizable portfolio of cobalt and lithium claims in what is recognized as the world’s most prolific mining jurisdiction for these resources strategically positions the company to benefit as global initiatives push demand for lithium-ion batteries toward a frenzy. Zion Market Research, a leading research and consulting firm, has forecast that the lithium-ion battery market could hit $67 billion by 2022, realizing a CAGR of more than 13.7% from 2017-2022. Both lithium and cobalt are major components of these energy storage solutions, with industry data indicating that the battery industry currently consumes roughly 42 percent of global cobalt production.

The company is reviving a lithium exploration program that was active in Argentina a decade ago, building on an unexplored mine it owns there. Marifil will utilize a large proprietary geologic and geochemical data base it developed during its 2009 lithium exploration program in the Salta and Catamarca province sites to resume lithium exploration in the region.

Applications for a second mine and negotiations to purchase a third property are underway, which would establish a significant property portfolio of ‘salar’ brine evaporation lakes. Hydrothermal solutions emanating from regional faults in area volcanoes often enrich the brine with lithium, boron, potassium and magnesium.

In addition to nearly 152,000 acres of lithium-staked properties, Marifil owns 887 acres of land for cobalt exploration and 91,565 acres of gold mining rights in an advanced exploration stage in San Roque that company engineers indicate has high gold discovery potential with “excellent infrastructure and mining friendly politics.”

To date, more than $7.5 million has been invested assessing Marifil’s flagship San Roque gold property, including nearly 16,000 meters of diamond core drilling. The property is jointly owned by Marifil and Novagold Resources, with Marifil holding a 51% stake and serving as the current project operator. The company recently commenced a drilling campaign to further evaluate several deposits of significant gold-silver-indium-lead-zinc mineralization on a 4-kilometer-long zone.

Marifil has closed a private placement funding for $2 million that will inject additional life into the company. Proceeds from the funding will benefit acquisition plans, the ongoing drilling program at Marifil’s gold claim and other output from its general working capital accounts.

Robert Abenante, a chartered professional account, serves as president and chief executive officer of the company. He has extensive experience in the public markets and has served as an officer and director of several public and private companies across various industries, with particular success in the mining sector.

Marifil Mines Ltd. (MFMLF), closed the day's trading session at $0.1242, even for the day. The average volume for the last 60 days is 2,032 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.01/$0.165.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (OTC: REFG)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG).

Cannabis-focused financial services company Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (OTC: REFG) has developed Green, a Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (“FinCEN”) compliant payment processing platform for the cannabis industry. To view the full article, visit: http://cnw.fm/C4CAr.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (OTC: 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 $0.045, off by 2.17%, on 234,531 volume with 36 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 573,311 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0161/$0.092.

FinCanna Capital Corp. (CSE: CALI) (OTCQB: FNNZF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight FinCanna Capital Corp. (FNNZF).

FinCanna Capital Corp. (CSE: CALI) (OTCQB: FNNZF) a royalty company for the U.S. licensed medical cannabis industry, announces that it has closed its second and final tranche of the oversubscribed private placement previously announced on June 15 and upsized on June 18, 27 and 29, 2018.

FinCanna Capital Corp. (CSE: CALI) (OTCQB: FNNZF) is a royalty company aiming to be the capital partner of choice for high-growth, best-in-class businesses operating in the licensed U.S. medical cannabis industry. Primarily focused on the burgeoning California cannabis market, FinCanna leverages extensive investment expertise and industry experience to benefit its shareholders and portfolio companies.

Medical Cannabis Market

According to Ameri Research, the global market for licensed medical cannabis is growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of more than 21%, on track to exceed $63.5 billion by 2024. Within this market, FinCanna has identified considerable opportunity in California, the fifth largest economy in the world and the largest medical cannabis market in North America. Arcview Group forecasts California’s legal cannabis industry will grow at 21.1% CAGR to $6.5 billion in 2020, generating more than $1 billion in tax revenue.

Royalty Model & Portfolio

FinCanna’s “whole capital” solution for businesses in the licensed medical cannabis sector includes the provision of capital investment for a percentage of their future revenues. The FinCanna Capital Solution utilizes a royalty arrangement to deliver capital, in order to facilitate the growth or other specific objectives of its investees, and ensure the business opportunity is optimized. This model provides an alternative or complement to debt and equity financing, allowing investees to maintain financial flexibility and control of their business rather than entering into arrangements that may include restrictive debt structures or giving up an ownership stake.

FinCanna’s portfolio includes Cultivation Technologies, Inc. (“CTI”), a team of experts from Fortune 150 agriculture, medical cannabis, law, engineering and technology companies. FinCanna is providing funding to CTI for its planned, fully entitled, large-scale indoor medical cannabis facility to be developed in Coachella, California.

CTI has established an interim medical cannabis extraction facility (the “Interim Facility”) that will produce licensed medical cannabis products until the Coachella Project is complete. CTI is currently expanding its product line, Coachella Premium, to include vaporizer cartridges. Initial market feedback gathered during the product development phase indicates that Coachella Premium’s vaporizer cartridges offer a unique proposition within the vaporizer market, one of the fastest growing verticals in the cannabis market.

The Interim Facility can process up to 6,000 pounds of biomass per month, the equivalent of approximately 3.7 million grams of raw oil per year, with room for expansion. It is expected that the completed Coachella Project will be able to process 30,000 to 50,000 pounds of biomass per month, or the equivalent of 18 million grams to 30 million grams of raw oil per year.

Additionally FinCanna has entered into a royalty agreement with Green Compliance, a provider of point-of-sale software solution (“ezGreen”) for licensed medical cannabis dispensaries and cultivators. Green Compliance helps its customers comply with both the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”) and State Laws by ensuring patients’ confidential data is being handled properly, helping to protect from possible security breaches and financial and criminal liability resulting from potential violations.

FinCanna has also signed binding term sheet with Oakland, California-based Gram Co Holdings, subject to due diligence by FinCanna. Gram Co is a cannabinoid research and refinement facility focused providing B2B and B2C products and services to licensed medical dispensaries, infused product manufacturers, and numerous others in the cannabis supply chain. The company is also retrofitting a large, state-of-the-art medical cannabis extraction laboratory, which is expected to be operating in 2018.

The foregoing contains forward-looking statements regarding Cultivation Technologies Inc. (“CTI”) which are subject to risks, uncertainties and contingencies which include, but are not limited to the statements relating the future construction and completion of the CTI medical cannabis facility in Coachella, California, and the projected biomass processing and raw oil production at the facility. Such forward looking statements are based on assumptions regarding the construction, completion and operations of CTI’s proposed facility, including that CTI will obtain the financing required to build and equip its proposed facility, that CTI will obtain the additional financing required operate the facility, that construction facility is completed on time and budget, that CTI obtains state licenses to operate on a permanent basis, and that the equipment used in the cultivation of medical cannabis performs at scale in a similar way it performs at CTI’s pilot tests.

FinCanna Capital Corp. (FNNZF), closed the day's trading session at $0.2117, off by 1.53%, on 52,922 volume with 26 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 42,128 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.10/$0.8736.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LXRP).

Lexaria Bioscience (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) has been strategically out-licensing its disruptive delivery technology and focusing on R&D to improve its value and increase cash flow. To view the full article, visit: http://cnw.fm/9rL55.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP) has developed and out-licenses its proprietary technology for improved taste, rapidity, and delivery of bioactive compounds, including cannabinoids. Though boasting a wide range of health benefits, cannabinoids are traditionally poorly absorbed by the body’s gastrointestinal tract. To achieve higher effectiveness, consumers usually default to smoking. Lexaria provides a superior administration method by delivering hemp oil ingredients – or through locally licensed partners, cannabis oil ingredients – through a patented process within food products.

The key differentiator between Lexaria’s products and others on the market is the company’s disruptive technology proven to enhance the absorption of orally ingested cannabinoids while improving the “unusual” taste of cannabinoids and allowing for lower overall dosing with higher efficacy. Lexaria is primarily a B2B enterprise, and is in licensing discussions or has existing agreements with companies in Canada, the largest-market states in the USA, and internationally. Lexaria has also developed its own brands partly for demonstration purposes, utilizing its patented technology to infuse hemp oil ingredients within lipids in popular foods. These brands include ViPova™, Lexaria Energy Foods, and TurboCBD™.

In 2015, Lexaria commissioned an independent, third-party lab to test its technology under carefully monitored in vitro conditions. Results showed that the company’s technological process and lipid formulation both improve intestinal absorption as much as 500%. Additional follow-up studies in human volunteers suggested that Lexaria’s processed, lipid-infused tea may be more effective in an actual gastrointestinal system than in an in vitro simulation with results indicating as much as a 1,000% increase in overall absorption.

Lexaria also has an R&D partnership with the Canadian government’s National Research Council. That R&D is expected to characterize molecular bond formation theorized to occur with Lexaria’s unique technology between the lipid delivery agents and the bioactive substances it processes and combines. Results from this R&D are expected to support accelerating B2B relationships – not just in the cannabis industry, but also to support new B2B business relationships in the fields of vitamins, NSAIDs, and nicotine delivery. All of these sectors expected to offer additional future growth potential.

Aside from testing, a critical component of Lexaria Bioscience’s business model is a strong intellectual property portfolio that utilizes the most commonly used food processing techniques. As of 2017, the company’s patent portfolio includes 19 patent applications filed and pending in more than 40 countries around the world. The most recent patent applications expand Lexaria’s lipophilic food and beverage composition claims to include the processing of cannabinoids, vitamins, NSAIDs and nicotine in many of the world’s most commonly used food processing ingredients. Lexaria is expecting additional new patent awards both in the USA and internationally in 2017 and 2018.

Royalties play a vital role in Lexaria’s revenue-generating business model. The company out-licenses its technology (royalty) to third party partners, and has several deals signed and/or pending. The company’s growth initiatives are guided by a management team headed by CEO Chris Bunka, a serial entrepreneur who has raised more than $50 million in working capital for the companies he has led over the course of his career. He is supported by a team of professionals with extensive experience in pharmaceutical and bioscience sectors, invention, toxicology, consumer goods, and other relevant skillsets.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LXRP), closed the day's trading session at $2.00, off by 4.76%, on 95,641 volume with 176 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 269,122 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.2726/$2.54.

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX-V: FCC) (OTCQX: FTSSF)

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

Cobalt exploration and development company First Cobalt (TSX.V: FCC) (OTCQX: FTSSF) is assessing the potential need to restart and expand its cobalt extraction refinery, which is the only currently permitted refinery of its kind in North America that is capable of producing battery-grade material. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/seNE8.

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 $0.3083, off by 6.58%, on 218,243 volume with 112 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 177,643 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.3213/$1.3041.
