Maple Gold Mines Ltd. is an exploration company centered on advancing a district-scale gold project in one of the world’s premier mining jurisdictions. Its 370 km2 Douay Gold Project is within the prolific Abitibi Greenstone Belt in northern Quebec. The Douay Gold Project has first-rate infrastructure with large operating mines within 150 kms.

The Douay Project has an established gold resource, which remains open in manifold directions. Maple Gold is concentrating on expanding the known resource areas and testing new discovery targets within its 55 km of strike along the Casa Berardi Deformation Zone.
The updated resource estimate (NI 43-101 Technical Report - March 2018) successfully converted a major proportion of Inferred to the Indicated Resource category, at Douay West and Porphyry Zones. Resources at Douay now stand at 2.76 million ounces Inferred plus 0.48 million ounces Indicated
In late June, Maple Gold Mines reported additional drill results from the western half of the Porphyry Zone within the current Resource Area at the Douay Property. Within this area 8 infill and step-out holes were drilled in 2018. Assays are pending for the westernmost hole of these only.
Geological observations and assay results for these new holes show good continuity of mineralization in this area, with a number of higher grade intervals, within a syenite dyke or dyke swarm in the hanging wall of one of the Casa Berardi Faults.
Yesterday, Maple Gold Mines reported additional drill results from the eastern half of the Porphyry Zone within the current Resource Area at the Douay Project. Within this area 16 infill and step-out holes were drilled in 2018, with all assays now received. The main intercepts in DO-18-247 and DO-18-254 show considerably higher grades than adjacent holes. This indicates that grade may increase with depth in this area.
Maple Gold Mines’ President and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Matthew Hornor, stated: "We continue to intersect new zones of mineralization and given the widely spaced drilling in this eastern part of the Resource Area there is still good potential to make additional discoveries with further drilling."

This collaboration is to develop high-quality antibodies useful for detection of Lassa virus (LASV), and potentially as a treatment for Lassa Fever (LF). Lassa Fever is an acute viral hemorrhagic illness caused by LASV. A member of the Arenavirus family, LASV causes severe and often fatal hemorrhagic illnesses in West Africa.
Earlier this month, GeoVax Labs announced that it is collaborating with Vaxeal Holding SA on the expansion of GeoVax’s cancer immunotherapy program. The foundation of GeoVax’s immuno-oncology program is on its Modified Vaccinia Ankara (MVA) Virus-Like Particle (VLP) platform that produces non-infectious VLPs in the individual being vaccinated.
This collaboration between GeoVax Labs and Vaxeal Holding will include the design, construction, characterization and animal testing of vaccine candidates utilizing GeoVax’s MVA-VLP vaccine platform. Vaccine antigens will include Vaxeal’s proprietary designed sequences. Vaxeal Holding SA (Vevey, Switzerland), in partnership with foremost international research institutes, is developing therapeutic vaccines in combination with immuno-modulatory drugs for the treatment of cancers and infectious diseases.
Last week, GeoVax Labs announced the publication of its manuscript entitled “A Single-Dose of Modified Vaccinia Ankara Expressing Ebola Virus Like Particles Protects Nonhuman Primates from Lethal Ebola Virus Challenge.” The paper is published in the peer-reviewed open access journal Scientific Reports by Nature Research. The Company’s Ebola vaccine (GEO-EM01) is founded on the Company’s novel Modified Vaccinia Ankara (MVA) Virus-Like Particle (VLP) platform. This platform produces noninfectious VLPs in the individual undergoing vaccination.
Farshad Guirakhoo, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer of GeoVax Labs, said, “GEO-EM01 uses GeoVax’s proven MVA-VLP vaccine platform that has been shown to be safe and to induce durable antibody and T-cell responses in multiple human clinical trials for GeoVax’s prophylactic HIV vaccine. Using the same platform, we have shown our Zika vaccine (GEO-ZM02) and our Lassa Fever vaccine (GEO-LM01) to provide single-dose 100 percent protection in mice against intracranial challenge.``

PreveCeutical Medical Inc. (CSE: PREV) (OTCQB: PRVCF) (FSE: 18H)
PreveCeutical Medical Inc. (CSE: PREV) (OTCQB: PRVCF) (FSE: 18H) (the "Company" or "PreveCeutical"), announced that it has retained Link Media LLC ("Link Media") to provide communications and market awareness services to the Company, aimed at maintaining and building the profile of PreveCeutical among existing and potential investors.
PreveCeutical Medical Inc. (CSE: PREV) (OTCQB: PRVCF) (FSE:18H), headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, is a health sciences company dedicated to researching and developing innovative options for preventive and curative therapies utilizing organic and Nature Identical™ products. The company is strategically staking out select positions in the medically acute areas of diabetes and obesity, pain management, neurological disorders and cancer.
PreveCeutical Medical Inc. had its beginnings in 2009 when Stephen Van Deventer, a seasoned businessman and venture capitalist, and Kimberly Van Deventer, a successful entrepreneur, met and formed a business partnership. The duo created Cornerstone Global Partners, a venture capital and business development company, and became involved in numerous ventures including building companies such as Aurora Cannabis Inc. Taking their interest in the health and wellness market further, the pair began researching how nature and science can work together to benefit health-conscious consumers. Coining and trademarking the word “PreveCeutical” – a combination of the words “preventive” and “pharmaceutical” – was a precursor to the company’s formation and incorporation in October 2015.
The company’s first product was developed in the Dominican Republic and is now marketed and distributed worldwide by PreveCeutical. It is a Caribbean Blue Scorpion venom product sold under the trade name CELLB9®. This product is an oral dilute solution infused with select peptides sourced exclusively from the blue scorpion (Rhopalurus princeps) found only in Caribbean nations. The active potentiated ingredients in CELLB9, which have been used in over 40 countries for over a decade, appear to support health at a deep, cellular level. PreveCeutical’s research team is using proprietary chemistry to generate Nature Identical™ peptides derived from natural compounds found in Caribbean Blue Scorpion venom with the goal of eventually treating, regulating and preventing cancer progression. Peptides are also being used to target an array of disease indications including metabolic disorders, pain management, cancers, cardiovascular and infectious diseases.
PreveCeutical is developing the first nose-to-brain delivery system of cannabinoids (CBDs) with a novel process that prepares insoluble drug-containing nano-micelles and successfully incorporating them into a proprietary sol-gels application, essentially creating a targeted drug delivery vehicle. Intended for use via a nasal spray, this unique formulation rapidly gels upon contact with mucosal tissue, which paves the way for direct nose-to-brain delivery. This novel application eliminates first pass metabolism (stomach, intestines, liver), potentially improving bioavailability and delivering extended time release formulations that may alleviate side effects of higher dosage therapeutics. This CBD-based patented formula is projected to be deployed in selected markets with licensed medical marijuana companies within 18 months.
PreveCeutical is working with four leading Australian research centers to develop a curative therapy for diabetes and obesity. This four-year program involves engineering a novel approach that selectively targets the gene that encodes for the protein PTP-1B, which is implicated and over-expressed in both type-2 diabetes and obesity. PreveCeutical’s gene-silencing technology would effectively “turn off” the genetic signal which leads to the over-production of this key protein molecule, bringing it back down to safe, normalized levels, and prevent the body from storing excessive fat. Diabetes kills one person every six seconds, with more than $800 billion spent globally on the disease.
Another exciting joint venture, established with Sports 1 Marketing, will focus on the therapeutic potential in the peptides and proteins connected to the Caribbean Blue Scorpion venom to potentially treat mild brain injury concussions. Developing a therapeutic product geared towards athletes who suffer from concussions could help alleviate suffering experienced by those who are affected by head trauma.
PreveCeutical Medical’s science and research team is led by Dr. Harendra (Harry) Parekh, Ph.D., who is based at the University of Queensland’s (UQ) Pharmacy Australia Centre of Excellence (PACE), and Dr. Makarand Jawadekar, Ph.D., whose 28 years of R&D experience with Pfizer Inc., is applicable in his role as chief science officer. Research collaborators include Dr. Rakesh Veedu, an emerging expert internationally in the field of molecular medicine, and Professor Grant Ramm, who is currently head of a leading medical research institute located in Brisbane, Australia.
PreveCeutical Medical is partnering with leading industry experts and companies in its quest to be a leader in the preventive health sciences sector. Its Research and Development partnership with UniQuest, the main commercialization company for the University of Queensland, provides PreveCeutical with the rights to all intellectual property arising from projects created under the agreement. PreveCeutical Medical Inc.’s management team brings an extensive portfolio of research experience, product development, deep corporate strategy and capital markets leadership to the company’s core.

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX-V: FCC) (OTCQX: FTSSF)
First Cobalt Corp. (TSX-V: FCC; ASX: FCC; OTCQX: FTSSF) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that drilling in the Canadian Cobalt Camp has identified a second cobalt mineralization trend within the Kerr area near surface extending over a 500-metre strike length. This mineralized trend is located parallel to and 400 metres north of the previously identified Kerr #2 Zone, which has been traced over 350 metres to date.
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 $0.3539, up 15.69%, on 290,535 volume with 121 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 191,295 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.2644/$1.3041.

Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTC: PQEFF)
Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSXV: PQE) (OTC: PQEFF) (FSE: A2DYWC) ("Petroteq" or the "Licensee"), a company focused on the development and implementation of proprietary technologies for the energy industry, announced an agreement with Cavitation Technologies, Inc (OTCQB: CVAT) (Berlin: WDC) (“CTi” or the “Licensor”), a company providing highly scalable and cost-effective solutions to various fluids processing industries. Also today, PQEFF this morning announced that it has entered into a licensing agreement with Cavitation Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: CVAT) (Berlin: WDC) (“CTi”) to test its equipment during oil production for workflow efficiencies and to lower its cost of production obtained through Petroteq’s oil sands extraction process. To view the full press release, visit: http://nnw.fm/5I5rU.
Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTC: PQEFF) is a Canadian-registered, publicly traded company engaged in the development and implementation of proprietary technologies for the environmentally safe extraction of heavy oils from oil sands, oil shale deposits and shallow oil deposits. The company is focused on oil and gas exploration and production on mineral leases it owns in Texas with Accord GR Energy Inc. and in expanding production capacity at its Asphalt Ridge heavy oil extraction facility in Utah.
Petroteq Energy is also participating in a blockchain initiative aimed at solving the global transaction needs of the oil and gas industry through the development of PetroBLOQ, the Company’s collaboration formed with First Bitcoin Capital Corp. (OTC: BITCF). PetroBLOQ’s novel blockchain-based oil and gas supply chain management platform is currently being co-developed by the two companies.
PetroBLOQ recently joined the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (“EEA”), the world’s largest open-source blockchain initiative. Membership with the 200-member EEA represents a wide variety of industries and offers 14 industry-focused, member-driven working groups.
“Joining this community of forward-looking enterprises and blockchain innovators is an important step for PetroBLOQ as we develop transformative solutions for the oil and gas industry,” said Petroteq Energy CEO Alex Blyumkin.
In addition, Petroteq has joined the American Petroleum Institute (API). The API is the only national trade association representing all facets of the oil and natural gas industry, promoting safety across the industry globally and influencing public policy in support of a strong, viable oil and natural gas industry. “API has led the development of operating standards for our industry, and we look forward to contributing our experience with oilfield technologies in addition to introducing our PetroBLOQ platform to its members throughout the supply chain,” Blyumkin previously stated.
Petroteq Energy’s patent-pending application is a closed-loop, solvent-based process, which results in significantly lower per-barrel production costs than those incurred with traditional hot water-based oil sands extraction technologies. This green technology utilizes a small, modular footprint, produces no greenhouse gases, requires no high temperatures, leaves only clean dry sand, and could be deployed to unlock heavy oil deposits located around the world.
The Company’s Asphalt Ridge mineral lease on 3,000-plus acres in northeastern Utah features a large contingent oil sands resource base with an estimated 87 million barrels of oil equivalent. In 2015, the company produced 10,000 barrels of oil from the Utah location and plans to increase production are underway. Utah holds over 32 billion barrels of undeveloped oil sands resources, which are also known as “oil-wet” deposits containing a mixture of sand and a dense, extremely viscous form of petroleum referred to as bitumen or tar. A recent upswing in developing domestic energy sources has intensified interest in technological advances such as Petroteq’s Liquid Extraction System.
The company’s Texas location includes an ownership interest (46%) in 7,000 acres under mineral leases with Accord, a Houston-based oil and gas exploration company that focuses on the development and recovery of heavy oil reserves and deposits. Two enhanced, licensed oil recovery technologies designed to increase oil recovery from more than 80 shallow oil wells on the property are expected to substantially improve the recovery rates of heavy oil deposits in this area. In both the Utah oil sands and traditional oil patch Texas project, the Company, its subsidiaries and Accord are using proprietary technologies, processes and methodologies to recover heavy oil, providing a distinct, strategic economic advantage for Petroteq Energy and its shareholders.
The Company continues to evaluate the development of other medium to heavy oil exploration, production and recovery projects on a global basis through a variety of structured agreements. These opportunities or other arrangements with private and governmental entities that utilize Petroteq Energy’s proprietary licensed technologies are expected to generate a significant return on investment.
The Company’s management team, board of directors and officers form an invaluable cross-section of industry leaders with extensive experience ranging from chemical engineering and solvent research, business development, international project management, entrepreneurial achievements, and senior management for global energy companies in North America and the Middle East. This impressive knowledge base covers both conventional and unconventional oil and gas projects and production, both in upstream and downstream industry sectors.
Petroteq Energy Inc. (PQEFF), closed the day's trading session at $1.08993, up 14.89%, on 1,176,135 volume with 951 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 124,178 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.28/$1.8892.

Zenosense, Inc. (OTCQB: ZENO)
Zenosense, Inc. (OTCQB: ZENO), a healthcare technology company focused on the development and commercialization of the MIDS Cardiac™ hand-held device for the early detection of heart attack at the Point of Care, is pleased to announce that the Company is now trading on the OTC Markets Group OTCQB “Venture Market”. Investors can find current financial disclosure, company news and Real-Time Level 2 quotes for Zenosense at: http://www.otcmarkets.com/stock/ZENO/quote.
Zenosense, Inc. (OTCQB: ZENO) (the “Company”) is a healthcare technology developer that participates in transformational, disruptive medical diagnostic projects; particularly handheld devices used at the Point of Care which are displacing slow and expensive laboratory tests.
Zenosense is primarily focused on the development and commercialization of MIDS Cardiac™ through the Company’s joint venture ownership in MIDS Medical Limited (“MML”). MIDS Cardiac is in development as a cost-effective, handheld Point of Care (“POC”) diagnostic device and disposable test strip for the early, rapid detection of suspected acute myocardial infarction (“AMI”, or “heart attack”).
Identification of very low levels of cardiac markers can significantly accelerate critical triage, diagnosis, treatment and disposition of patients reporting chest pain. Cardiac troponin is well documented as the preferred biomarker for diagnosis of AMI, with evidence continuing to demonstrate that high sensitivity troponin is the most powerful prognostic biomarker for the assessment of cardiovascular risk in the general population. However, highly sensitive troponin assays are currently available only on state of the art, central laboratory analyzers. These analyzers are extremely expensive, not generally available at the POC and slow to turnaround results (typically 60 minutes) when time is critical.
True, high-sensitivity devices are not available in smaller handheld devices at the POC, where they are most needed. This is because the optical detection systems generally used in central laboratory analyzers cannot be effectively miniaturized.
MIDS Cardiac uses the patented MIDS technology platform, exclusively available to MML. Instead of using conventional optical detection, MIDS can detect and quantify assay beads nano-magnetically. This means it can be incorporated in a small device expected to achieve highly sensitive detection levels, which can support true high sensitivity cardiac biomarker tests in emergency settings, at the POC.
Harnessing world-class expertise, the MML laboratory is located at the prestigious Sci-Tech Daresbury campus in the U.K., internationally recognized for leading-edge, scientific research and commercial development. MML has the sole rights to the MIDS technology platform, which is protected by patent applications already granted in China and the USA, and applications now in the national phase in all other key geographic areas.
MIDS Cardiac aims to provide a single troponin I or T test within 3 minutes and three panel assay (additional cardiac biomarkers) on a disposable test strip within 8 minutes, using a hand-held device costing a fraction of the price of laboratory analyzers.
MIDS Cardiac should only require a pin prick of blood for a single assay test carried out on an easy-to-use, disposable microfluidic test strip. MIDS Cardiac is being designed to be operated quickly by minimally trained personnel, producing a simple to interpret result in emergency settings, even in the back of an ambulance.
Initial testing of the electronic and microfluidic components of the MIDS Cardiac “Hybrid Strip” system was completed in November 2017. The Hybrid Strip system used for development testing aims to replicate as closely as possible a fully integrated Lab on Chip MIDS test strip set-up. Development testing was conducted on both the assembled hybrid unit and its electronic and microfluidic components separately, focusing mainly on the electronics of the magnetic sensing system.
Testing revealed that a variety of brands and sizes of commercially available assay beads could be magnetically detected in very low quantities, including samples of beads that were previously undetectable. In several instances, the current “limit of detection” appeared to already be at or near to the range advised by MML’s assay consultants as suitable for a high sensitivity troponin assay.
Dr. Nasser Djennati, MML’s Managing Director and Chief Scientific Officer, said; “These results come in at the very high end of detection expectations, even at this Hybrid Strip stage. As we move forward into true Lab on Chip construction, I expect detection levels to improve further still.”
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the western world, accounting for more than 17 million deaths in Europe and the United States alone. Nearly 20 million patients each year visit an emergency room with reports of chest pain, with hundreds of millions spent on unnecessary admissions to the hospital. Zenosense Inc. is confident MIDS Cardiac will deliver unparalleled levels of accuracy, speed, reliability, ease of use and cost savings, making it the future device of choice for hospitals, emergency rooms, medical practitioners, paramedics and in low-resource settings.
The MIDS technology is also seen as having a far wider application, with the platform being capable of performing Point of Care immunoassay tests for a vast array of common healthcare concerns, a market projected to be worth $23.7 billion per year worldwide by 2019. The medical testing market as a whole is projected to be worth $53.34 billion by 2021. Zenosense believes the MIDS technology could be the most significant advance in diagnostic testing services in decades.

Choom’s trademark slogans pivot off another unconventional phrase (“Say Hello to…”), bringing a heady dose of good times and good friends together as the company invites investors to “Say Hello to Choom™” as it lights up the adult recreational cannabis market in Canada.
Choom™ has been an ACMPR (Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations) applicant since November 2013 in Vernon, B.C. The company’s first application has received security clearance and is now in the detailed review stage. They also recently announced their second late-stage ACMPR application, which is in its confirmation of readiness stage. Cannabis Compliance Inc. has been retained to help expedite Choom’s initial license applications to ensure the company’s readiness for legalization of recreational marijuana in Canada mid-summer 2018.
True to the company’s character, Choom™ is retrofitting two large facilities – No. 1 in Vernon, B.C., and No. 2 on Vancouver Island – to house its cannabis growing facilities. Phase 1 of the Vernon property will provide Choom™ with 6,800 square feet of growing space, capable of producing 660 kg/year of cannabis at an estimated revenue of $6.6 million, excluding oils. The company expects this facility to be completed by July 2018, the same month that Canada is expected to formally legalize recreational marijuana for adult use. A potential Phase 2, to be completed by the end of 2018, would add another 6,800 square feet for a total of 1,500 kg/year capacity, which would nearly double No. 1’s revenue. A Level 9 vault is also planned with a storage capacity of 15,000 kg. While the No. 2 facility on Vancouver Island is smaller – 4,500 square feet – its retrofit is also slated to be completed by July 2018. Plans include doubling this space as well, which would add about $9 million in annual revenue, excluding cannabis oils.
Choom™ announced its retail dispensary strategy with the intention of establishing market leadership in reaching the Canadian cannabis consumer. The partner program is already in the retail space design stage as the company seeks to build a chain of branded retail cannabis dispensaries in jurisdictions in Canada where recreational cannabis is legal. Choom™ Stores will have a cool, modern layout and design created to emit an authentic “Aloha” vibe. Choom™ is all about producing high-grade cultivars and curating them for a bigger audience.
A savvy, experienced management team includes Chris Bogart, president and CEO; John Oh, R.P.I.C., Operations Manager; Robert Bayrack, Master Grower, S.P.I.C.; and Adrian Robinson, Strategic Advisor. Bogart has over two decades of international experience in capital markets and was a co-founder of InMed Pharmaceuticals and Magnum Uranium. He has structured complex equity financing transactions in the U.S., Europe and Canada. Bogart is joined on the Board of Directors by Kevin Pull, Stephen Tong and John Oh.
While the medical marijuana industry is expected to double by 2021 to 500,000 registered users, the true highlight of the recreational cannabis represents the key cultural shift set to launch in Canada. With an estimated $4.9B to $8.7B retail market coming, now is the right time for a Recreation Brand like Choom™ to be involved in this growing industry. Establishing and maintaining Choom™ premium brand loyalty is a key factor in the company’s growth strategy. Get ready to “Say Hello” to opportunity, good times and good friends with Choom™.
Choom Holdings Inc. (CHOOF), closed the day's trading session at $0.9249, up 1.30%, on 195,575 volume with 229 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 564,089 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.18/$1.10.

FinCanna Capital Corp. (CSE: CALI) (OTCQB: FNNZF)
FinCanna Capital Corp. (CSE:CALI) (OTCQB:FNNZF) a royalty company for the U.S. licensed medical cannabis industry, has executed an Expanded Royalty Agreement with Refined Resin Technologies Inc. (“Refined Resin”) formerly known as Gram Co Holdings LLC, of Oakland, California.
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 $0.2421, up 5.31%, on 37,255 volume with 42 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 205,281 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.18/$0.8612.

Victory Square Technologies Inc. (CSE: VST) (OTC: VSQTF) (FRANKFURT: 6F6) (WKN: A2AKL8)
Supporting its strategic vision for a vertically-integrated media division and entertainment hub, Victory Square Technologies Inc. (CSE:VST) (OTC:VSQTF) (FWB:6F6) is pleased to report on the results from its second quarter acquisition of V2 Games Inc. (“V2 Games”).
Victory Square Technologies Inc. (VSQTF) is a venture builder that creates, funds and empowers entrepreneurs working in the fields of blockchain technology, virtual reality, artificial intelligence, personalized health, gaming and film. As a technology incubator, Victory Square invests in game-changing entrepreneurs who are provided access to education programs, global mentorship networks, distribution partners, creative workspaces, resources, and other forms of operational support to help them scale internationally.
Victory Square has made multiple early partnerships and investments in the blockchain space. Approximately three years ago the company incubated and invested in BTL Group, which is now a $150 million dollar TSX-listed company offering blockchain solutions across multiple industries with particular focus on the finance, energy and gaming sectors. BTL’s showcase product – Interbit – is a blockchain platform that facilitates the rapid development of business applications that dramatically improve efficiency. Some of the world’s largest institutions are using Interbit to explore new opportunities on private blockchains.
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.
“Blockchain technology and the inherent security it provides will enable us to push every envelope we can to build the most dynamic and responsive social sports betting platform,” said Darius Eghdami, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of FansUnite. “The opportunity to secure data through Blockchain certainly appeals to the accountant in me and we are confident it will become the gold standard among sports betting sites around the world.”
Company subsidiary Victory Square Health Inc., which serves as the venture arm dedicated to companies focused on the development of solutions in personalized health technologies, has also invested in Personalized Biomarkers Inc. (PBI). PBI develops test kits that reliably predict the expected response to a number of therapies prior to prescription, with an initial focus on diabetes. Within this field, five potential biomarkers have been identified, allowing PBI to enter a $4 billion market opportunity.
“We are excited for the opportunity to partner with Personalized Biomarkers as they have correctly identified a massive market opportunity, and have formed an exceptional team of industry leaders,” said Shafin Diamond Tejani, Chief Executive Officer of Victory Square. “This is another investment that is fully aligned with our newly created subsidiary, and one we expect to significantly impact the landscape of personalized medicine.”
A partnership with Insight Diagnostics Inc., also through Victory Square Health, will focus on the development of a personalized diagnostic solution for the improved management and prevention of Type II diabetes.
The company’s investment in V2 Games, a development and publishing studio of high-quality mobile games, is another example of incubating great ideas. V2 Games is well known for its successful launch of PAC-MAN Bounce and Beast Brawlers, two of the company’s releases that are capturing the gaming world by the millions of downloads.
In a move designed to strengthen its presence in film and entertainment, Victory Square has acquired a 40 percent equity stake in United Film Fund II, LLC, which is producing three major motion pictures in 2017 and 2018 including “What They Had,” starring two-time Academy Award winner Hilary Swank.
“This kind of investment in entertainment and film represents a major plank for our Company going forward and we consider ourselves fortunate to have the opportunity to acquire this 40% stake in the Film Fund,” said Tejani, who has launched more than 40 startups in 21 countries that employ hundreds of people and generate more than $100 million in annual revenues. “We believe it’s another strong initiative in film production for us and our stakeholders,” he added.
Victory Square has strategically positioned itself in the legal cannabis industry through an investment in Tantalus Labs, a Canadian-based cannabis cultivation company. Tantalus Labs optimizes plant health and sustainable cultivation by using a unique, environmentally controlled greenhouse engineered specifically for growing cannabis. Called a “SunLab,” the greenhouse takes 90 percent less electricity, uses filtered rainwater, and cools the growing environment to prevent stagnant moisture, recycling the air every 7 minutes to achieve maximum airflow.
Victory Square and its leadership team have seamlessly transitioned from its former identity as Fantasy 6 Sports Inc, a company focused solely on fantasy sports, mobile gaming and immersive sports, to a strategic technology company that creates, funds and successfully executes leading-edge ideas. A long-time technology entrepreneur and advocate of the industry, Tejani received the Person-of-the-Year Award at the 2017 Technology Impact Awards in British Columbia, a hallmark award category that recognizes betterment of the tech industry through leadership and philanthropic or enterprise skills and talents. Tejani has pledged to match up to $1 million in donated funds to be shared by a number of Canadian endeavors aimed at education and child-safe projects.
“These are exciting and important steps in the evolution and growth of our Company, and which properly and fully align with our strategic plan focusing on our core competencies in Blockchain Technology, Artificial Intelligence, Gaming, Personalized Health, Film and Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality,” said Tejani. “We’re spurred on by the success we have had in building on our original forays into fantasy sports, mobile gaming and immersive sports. In addition, we are energized by our most recent initiatives in sports, personalized health and entertainment and the confidence being shown by our shareholders in the dynamic direction of the Company.”
Victory Square Technologies and its management team believe innovation, incubation of excellent ideas and social responsibility are at the core of its growing success.
Victory Square Technologies Inc. (VSQTF), closed the day's trading session at $0.629, off by 11.97%, on 18,800 volume with 27 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 29,425 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.298/$3.32.

- GPS Rifle Tracker: The company’s smallest GPS tracker, designed to withstand shocks and water submersion due to its robust, military standard enclosure, can be mounted on any AR15 platform picatinny rail to detect weapon discharge, track weapons and inventory, and send time and location alerts.
Led by a management team with solid experience in wearable technology, IoT, consumer electronics, mobile and technology licensing, as well as finance and the footwear industry, GTX plans to leverage its core technology platform to reach new verticals via licensing agreements and strategic partnerships, and to monetize its intellectual property portfolio.

Besides military and law enforcement, the company also eyes the biometrics market, home health, medicare and insurance and other security applications for potential uses of its IoT platform and tracking technology.
