Bluestone Resources, Inc. (BBSRF)
Stock Orange, Dividend Investor, Investors Hangout, OTC Markets, MarketWatch, 4-Traders, Geology for Investors, Current Charts, Wallmine, Barchart, OtcStockWatch, and Penny Stock Hub reported on Bluestone Resources, Inc. (BBSRF), and we report on the Company as well, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Bluestone Resources, Inc. concentrates on advancing its 100 percent owned Cerro Blanco Gold and Mita Geothermal Projects in Guatemala. The Cerro Blanco Project is a classic hot springs-related, low sulphidation gold-silver deposit. A mineral exploration and development company, Bluestone Resources has its head office in Vancouver, British Columbia.
The Cerro Blanco Project economics and updated mineral resource estimate for Cerro Blanco indicates a strong project with an expected nine-year mine life producing 952,000 ounces of gold and 3,141,000 ounces of silver. Initial capital expenditures estimated in the Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) to fund construction and commissioning is estimated at US$170.8 million with all in sustaining cash (AISC) estimated to be US$490 per ounce of gold produced.
The permitted Mita Geothermal Project is situated contiguous to Bluestone’s Cerro Blanco Gold Project in Guatemala. It is in southeast Guatemala, roughly 160 kilometers by road from the capital, Guatemala City. The Mita geothermal resource was discovered in the late 1990’s during gold exploration in southeastern Guatemala.
Bluestone Resources controls the required surface rights for the Mita Geothermal Project and the Cerro Blanco Project. The Cerro Blanco Gold Project is not dependent on the Mita Geothermal Project. However, Company Management’s belief is that there are potential synergies between the two that enhance the economics of the Cerro Blanco Gold Project beyond what was outlined in the PEA.

Molori Energy, Inc. (MOLOF)
InvestorsHub, Stockhouse, Streetwise Reports, and MarketWatch reported on Molori Energy, Inc. (MOLOF), and today we choose to report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
OTCQB-listed, Molori Energy, Inc. has current operations in the Texas Panhandle West Field. The Company’s operating team that is based in Borger, Texas, has extensive experience in the oil and gas industry in the Texas Panhandle. Molori Energy's business model is to deliver sustainable growth in shareholder value through centering on exploiting its existing reserves, commercializing and developing discoveries, and pursuing selective acquisitions.
An oil and gas production company, Molori Energy is headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia. Thee Company previously went by the name Taipan Resources, Inc. It changed its corporate name to Molori Energy Inc. in January of 2017.
The Company’s strategy has been to engage in low-risk well reactivations in the Texas Panhandle to produce steady cash flows. Greater than 60 wells have been reactivated so far. These are producing from the prolific Brown Dolomite formation.
At present, Molori Energy owns a 25 percent working interest (WI) in certain leases positioned in the bifurcated Texas panhandle, operated by its Texas-based partner Ponderosa Energy, LLC. Molori Energy has 165 producing (PDP) wells and an inventory of about 202 non-producing wells (PDNP) for a total of 367 wells. It is working to RTP (Return to Production) the PDNP wells through performing simple re-works or re-completions.
The assets include low-decline, PDP weighted reserves primarily in the West Panhandle Field of the Hugoton Basin of Texas. These assets are roughly 50 percent oil and 50 percent liquid rich gas (HIGH BTU premium gas) mainly located in Carson, Gray, and Hutchinson Counties of District 10.
Molori Energy and Ponderosa Energy have identified a development opportunity in the Red Cave formation. The formation is common throughout its leases at a shallower depth of 2,100’ to 2,300’. Improved fracing technologies and completion techniques have shown the Red Cave to be an economic development target.
Molori Energy announced in October of 2017 the signing of a definitive agreement to purchase an additional 25 percent WI in certain oil and gas leases from its Texas-based operating partner, Ponderosa Energy. This latest acquisition, combined with the 25 percent interest Molori presently has in these same leases, will bring the Company’s overall interest to 50 percent.
Molori Energy also announced in October the signing of a definitive agreement to secure a 75 percent WI in certain oil and gas leases, known formally as the "Red Cave Leases" in District 10, Texas. This acquisition of these leases, encompassing 11,000 acres with access to Red Cave, and with access to other formations, is an important milestone of Phase 1 of the Company’s development plan.
Recently, Molori Energy announced that it drilled to target depth the first of eight planned Red Cave Appraisal wells ('The Thompson 23-1R Well') upon its Moore County, Texas acreage upon which Molori Energy now holds a 75 percent WI. The 23-1R well was drilled to a total measured depth of roughly 2,500 feet and was immediately logged.
Upon evaluation of the open hole logs late in December 2017, it was determined that production pipe should be run on the Thompson 23-1R. On January 20, 2018, the well was successfully fracked with around 400,000 gallons of slick water and 250,000 lbs of sand.
Last month, Molori Energy announced a commercial oil discovery on its acreage in Moore County, Texas. The "Thompson 23-1R" well, operated by Molori Energy, is a northern step-out well drilled in December of 2017. The Thompson 23-1R well is directly north of the active development area of Adams Affiliates.
Mr. Joel Dumaresq, Molori Energy Chief Executive Officer, said, "We are extremely pleased with the 'discovery' and the initial results of our Thompson 23-1R well and frac into the Red Cave. The oil to water ratio continues to improve daily as we recover the water injected with the frac, and as a result we are experiencing daily increases in production."

InvestorsHub, Hydrocarbonprocessing.com, MarketWatch, Stockhouse, and OTC Markets reported on MMEX Resources Corp. (MMEX), and today we report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
MMEX Resources Corp. centers on the acquisition, development and financing of oil, gas, refining and infrastructure projects in Texas, Peru, and other countries in Latin America. A development-stage company, MMEX formed to engage in the exploration, extraction, refining and distribution of oil, gas, petroleum products and electric power. Established in the U.S. in 2010, MMEX Resources is based in Fort Stockton, Texas.
The Company’s principal areas of interest include the acquisition and potential development of refining, oil & gas assets in Texas, and the acquisition of oil and gas properties in Peru. Principal areas of interest also include crude, oil and product export opportunities in Latin America, and the development of terminals, storage, refining, oil & gas in Brazil.
The Company’s projects include the Pecos County Refinery Project, Fort Stockton, Texas. Phase 1 of the project is a 10,000 BPD Crude Distillation Unit. Phase 2 is a 100,000 BPD Large-Scale Refinery. This project is in Sulfur Junction, which is roughly 20 miles northeast of Fort Stockton. This project is strategically positioned close to oil production in West Texas, with storage capability.
MMEX Resources announced in August of 2017 that it secured permit approval from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) to build a 10,000 barrel-per-day (BPD) crude distillation unit near Fort Stockton, Texas. The expectation is that the project will require approximately 12 months of construction time and create major economic impact in Pecos County.
Last month, MMEX Resources announced that it retained Interstate Treating, Inc. (Odessa, Texas) to be the primary contractor for the engineering, procurement and construction of MMEX’s planned 10,000 barrel-per-day (bpd) crude oil distillation unit in Pecos County.
The Company also announced that Interstate Treating’s field personnel would immediately start the detailed engineering phase of the project so that the parties can finalize a definitive engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) agreement. Interstate Treating is a foremost provider of complete turnkey construction services to the gas treating and processing industry.
This week, MMEX Resources announced that it signed an off-take agreement with Pilot Thomas Logistics. This off-take agreement is for the sale of its diesel fuel production from Phase 1 of the MMEX refinery project in Pecos County, a 10,000 BPD Crude Distillation Unit. This agreement provides for Pilot Thomas Logistics to obtain 100 percent of the diesel production from Phase 1, around 4,200 barrels per day, for markets in the Permian Basin region chiefly for use in drilling operations.

(IPOOF), and today we choose to report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
OTCQX-listed, InPlay Oil Corp. is a growth-oriented light oil development and production company. It concentrates on large oil in place pools with low recovery factors, low declines, and long life reserves mainly targeting the Cardium Formation in the Province of Alberta. The Company’s light oil focus properties provide high netbacks with fast payout on new drills. InPlay Oil has its corporate office in Calgary, Alberta.
The Company’s Cardium assets are situated in West Central Alberta centered in the Pembina and Willesden Green pools. The pools have large oil in place reserves and there are still large reserves of unrecovered oil. At year end 2016, Cardium accounted for 70 percent of InPlay Oil’s production.
InPlay Oil’s Belly River light oil property is on the east side of the Pembina Cardium Pool. Belly River growth opportunities are centered around targeting oil in tight sands with low recovery factors by drilling horizontal multi-frac wells.
Additionally, InPlay Oil holds rights on a developing Duvernay light oil play. Depths are only slightly more than that of the Cardium sand in Willesden Green. This results in well costs that are manageable for the Company.
Recently, InPlay Oil announced its financial and operating results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018. Total production was up 17 percent to 4,396 boe/d versus Q2 2017. This resulted in average production for the first half of 2018 of 4,405 boe/d within the Company’s previous annual average 2018 guidance of 4,400 – 4,500 boe/d.
Revenues rose 44 percent from Q2 2017 to $21.0 million (96 percent derived from light oil and liquids). Operating Income was $11.5 million. This represents a 53 percent increase over Q2 2017 with a corresponding 31 percent increase in operating netback to $28.74/boe.
The Company’s capital program of $12.3 million in Q2 2018 consisted of a number of exploration, development and land acquisition activities. Development capital was centered on the Willesden Green bioturbated Cardium where InPlay drilled two 100 percent working interest (WI) extended reach horizontal wells and commenced a non-operated extended reach horizontal well, which drilled through quarter end.
Yesterday, InPlay Oil announced that it entered into a definitive agreement to sell certain non-core oil and gas properties in the West Pembina area of Alberta for cash consideration of $16.7 million, subject to closing adjustments. The Company plans to use the proceeds from the Disposition to step up Cardium drilling within its core Willesden Green area and lessen corporate indebtedness that will translate into its second increase in 2018 guidance over the past five weeks.

Green Hygienics Holdings Inc. (GRYN) is a full-scope, premium cannabis cultivation company targeting the high-end medical and adult-use recreational market. With more than 25 years of experience in agricultural science and innovation, Green Hygienics is establishing itself as a leader in the advancement of science-driven cannabis cultivation systems. The company will grow by generating revenues from the sales of premium grade cannabis products, developing and licensing valuable IP, making strategic acquisitions, and creating trusted global consumer brands.
The company has integrated and is developing its own IP assets related to proprietary systems and apparatus, software, algorithms and custom-engineered hardware.

Utilizing the advantages of hybrid-aeroponics, Green Hygienics creates a sterile growing environment that produces consistent, high-quality product while maintaining the lowest possible carbon footprint. The company utilizes state-of-the-art, quality-controlled commercial cultivation methodology to assure production of pharmaceutical-grade cannabis at much higher yields and greatly reduced costs.
Hybrid-aeroponics produces quality cannabis faster than traditional methods since it doesn’t require natural sunlight or soil and can be operational and produce plants anywhere. Plants grown under aeroponic conditions receive water and nutrients directly to their roots via a fine mist in a controlled environment, dramatically reducing spoilage while keeping the product organic and the environment pest-free. The plants are given the exact amount of nutrients and moisture precisely when needed. Green Hygienics maintains ultimate control over every aspect of this cultivation process, which allows the company to operate with conservation of natural resources in mind. The technology that uses 90-95 percent less water and does not require the use of pesticides or fungicides.
Additionally, the company’s state-of-the-art engineered, controlled environments include electrical, mechanical and HVAC designs that meet mandatory fire and energy codes while improving energy efficiency significantly.
Through these practices, Green Hygienics is establishing itself as a leader in the advancement of science-driven cannabis cultivation systems. The company continues to develop and incubate software as well as engineer hardware to provide additional control over the commercial cultivation method. The company’s science-based approach reveals any growth anomalies before the human eye can see them. This makes it possible to monitor all facets of production, identify cultivation problems based upon scientific data, and implement immediate corrective action, if needed.
The future of commercial cannabis cultivation hinges on using science to control the growing environment in order to remain competitive and deliver a premium grade of product on a consistent basis. The company holds a competitive advantage through its ability to produce premium cannabis products at a significantly lower cost per gram than direct competitors and others in the cannabis industry.
Innovations within the sector that create efficiencies and successful brands will become highly valued. Green Hygienics and its forward-thinking management team are constantly studying the market dynamics of the cannabis industry in North America and abroad while actively pursuing possible expansion opportunities. The company is headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada and establishing operations in San Diego, California, targeting the $5 billion California cannabis market.

SinglePoint, Inc. (SING) is a diversified holding company with operations in multiple industries and verticals including two high-performing market sectors: legal cannabis and cryptocurrencies. SinglePoint has grown from a full-service mobile technology provider to a recognizable brand with a diverse portfolio of undervalued subsidiaries with multiple revenue streams.
SinglePoint is researching opportunities where it can be an active participant by influencing the strategy and direction of high-potential companies whose verified assets offer attractive possibilities for shareholders. The company is guided by a visionary leadership team with extensive experience in technology, engineering, marketing and raising capital.
SinglePoint is bullish on the cannabis industry, bitcoin and blockchain technologies, which is evident in its recent acquisitions and joint-venture announcements. Recent SinglePoint key highlights include:
- A joint venture with Smart Cannabis Corporation (OTC: SCNA) to license and market Smart Cannabis’ SMART APP. SMART APP enables cannabis growers to measure all aspects of cultivation, from soil nutrient levels to watering cycles and carbon dioxide content in the air. SMART APP will integrate SinglePoint’s bitcoin payment solution to enable growers to process safer and more secure transactions.
- A joint venture with Global Payout (OTC: GOHE) will build on existing financial technology solutions developed by SinglePoint and Global Payout’s subsidiary MoneyTrac Technology, Inc., to fully optimize the delivery of mobile payment applications for domestic and international organizations.
- A joint venture with AppSwarm (OTC: SWRM) to start development on a proprietary delivery application that will enable licensed cannabis delivery services and licensed dispensaries to safely make in-home cannabis deliveries.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG)
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (OTC: REFG), through its Green FinCEN-compliant processing system, is providing the legalized marijuana industry an alternative to traditional banking. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/OXwz1.
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG), headquartered in Cheyenne, Wyoming, is a first-tier merchant processing cannabis industry pioneer, offering one of the first and only comprehensive card processing operations of its kind to serve the state-sanctioned medical marijuana industry. The company’s state of the art system, which also tracks sales and tax collection, and eliminates the need to deal in cash-only transactions.
Through its robust, closed-loop merchant processing system, the company’s unique “StateSourced” proprietary system enables authorized operation under FinCEN parameters and complies with all regulatory frameworks. StateSourced is tailored to deliver full-spectrum merchant processing services, providing the convenience of modern commercial card processing resources and making it the first operation of its kind geared to the legal cannabis industry.
StateSourced is not a prepaid or gift card, which is an important variable for merchants since standard banking institutions have not offered this form of payment processing to the legal cannabis industry. Federal law still considers marijuana illegal under the Controlled Substances Act, although 29 states and the District of Columbia have legalized the plant either for medicinal or recreational uses or both. This restriction has kept financial institutions at bay since most banks are federally insured and haven’t been inclined to venture into the nascent industry.
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions is able to offer its StateSourced card on a state-by-state basis where the card can be used in purchasing product from a legal, authorized vendor, providing a much-needed option for consumers and businesses alike. In another first, the company is collaborating with First Bitcoin Capital Corporation to integrate First Bitcoin’s cryptocurrency ($Weed) with Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions’ StateSourced payment gateway. This collaboration will allow state-licensed marijuana establishments across the nation to accept both StateSourced debit cards and cryptocurrencies such as WeedCoin and Bitcoin.
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions president and CEO Jeremy Roberts and his executive team are working with state lawmakers to introduce legislation in an effort to address the growing problems in banking for the medical cannabis industry. For companies in the emerging legal cannabis industry, where retail and non-retail transactions such as vendor payments and payroll are almost exclusively paid for with cash, the solutions offered by StateSourced can help businesses avoid the inherent risks associated with a cash-intensive sector. Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions has also signed its first StateSourced contract with a Las Vegas-based vertically integrated marijuana establishment.
“We’ve completed our transition from development stage to revenue stage,” says Roberts. “We have just started our business development efforts and the market is responding very well. We anticipate having many more, similar releases.”
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions provides end-to-end management across multiple systems for medicinal marijuana operations. The company solves the fragmentation problem experienced by many of these rapidly growing companies by identifying tools that are important to dispensaries and customizing those tools to meet the specific needs of this unique industry.
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG), closed the day's trading session at $0.0355, up 8.90%, on 564,536 volume with 51 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 326,856 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0161/$0.092.

QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (OTC: QMCQF) (TSX-V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ)
QMC Quantum Minerals (OTC: QMCQF) (TSX.V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ) is remaining positive regarding lithium’s favorable pricing outlook as the overall market paints a positive picture of potential for the metal. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/QUuU4.
QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (OTC: QMCQF) (TSX-V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ) is a British Columbia based company engaged in the business of acquisition, exploration and development of natural resource properties. QMC’s focus is on creating shareholder value through strategic acquisition and development of high quality lithium, silver, gold, nickel, copper and zinc prospects.
QMC’s current properties are in the Canadian province of Manitoba, one of Canada’s most productive, centrally located mining regions. These resources include the Irgon Lithium Mine project and two Volcanic Massive Sulphide (“VMS”) properties – the Rocky Lake and Rocky-Namew known collectively as the Namew Lake District Project – which contain base metal-rich mineral deposits. Excellent access and well-developed mining infrastructure to the company’s wholly-owned Irgon Lithium Mine Project offers significant value and ramps up the near-term production schedule, putting QMC in a position to take advantage of rising lithium prices.
The region’s historic resource estimate of lithium is well documented in a 1956 Assessment Report developed by a previous owner, Lithium Corporation of Canada Ltd. The project’s historical resource estimate of 1.2 million tons grading 1.51% lithium-oxide over a strike length of 365 meters and to a depth of 213 meters is being updated by QMC through a detailed channel sampling and subsequent drill program.
North Face Software Ltd. recently created an interactive 3-D model of the Irgon Dike utilizing all historical data derived from past drilling and underground work. The 3-D model clearly demonstrates that exploration and underground development has only taken place on the central portion of the dike, leaving significant potential to quickly increase tonnage.
The company’s latest assay results, obtained from 144 channel samples at QMC’s Irgon Lithium Mine Project, provided encouraging and positive results that compare favorably with the historic assays. QMC has received a drill permit from the Sustainable Development Office of the Manitoba government and is in the process of requesting and assessing bids from drilling contractors. The company plans to begin a 2,000-meter drill program to confirm the historic lithium oxide assay results documented in the historic 1953-54 drill program.
QMC’s experienced leadership team includes specialists in mineral exploration, geology, engineering, new business development, marketing and investor relations. The company’s team of qualified advisors includes consultant Bruce E. Goad, P.Geo., who has 40 years of experience in mineral exploration in Canada, Argentina, Asia and Africa. As a Qualified Person, Goad has worked on numerous deposit styles including rare element pegmatites, porphyry, banded iron formation (BIF) gold deposits, skarn, greisens, and VMS. He has a wide and varied skill set which includes precious, base, industrial and rare metal projects with a sharp focus on gold exploration. Goad is the author of several scholarly publications on pegmatite granites of the southeastern Manitoba region.
The market for lithium has surged over the past three years with prices per metric ton tripling. The world’s rising demand for portable power can easily been seen in the electric vehicle and mobile device industries – both of which use lithium-based, renewable batteries as a power resource. QMC’s high potential prospects and experienced management team, both in geology and corporate finance, put QMC and its shareholders in an excellent position to take advantage of the lithium, precious and base metals markets.
QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (QMCQF), closed the day's trading session at $0.2864, up 1.60%, on 85,990 volume with 22 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 96,312 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0899/$1.46.

Since then, Don and his partner, Charlie Larsen, have formed Global Hemp Group and Marijuana Company of America. They have experienced the shift of legislation first hand, not only for the legalization of marijuana but also the emerging hemp-based CBD products.
The CBD market is growing exponentially and consequently the founders of MCOA have constructed their business model around the development of industrial hemp-based CBD products. The industrial hemp plant can be used to produce products that are carbon neutral or even carbon negative. It is one of the longest, strongest natural fibers on earth, used as a building material that is free of mold, pesticide-resistant, and fire proof.

The cannabis and hemp industries are experiencing unprecedented growth that is expected to continue for many years as these industries are now accepted globally and continue to mature and expand. North American consumers spent $6.7 billion on legal cannabis products in 2016, up 34% from 2015’s $5 billion. This trend is widely expected to explode at a 27% compounded annual growth rate to reach $22.6 billion by 2021, according to ArcView Market Research.

Pacific Software, Inc. (PFSF)

To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/rA8iw.
Pacific Software, Inc. (PFSF) is focused on the design, development, and distribution of Hyperledger blockchain technology solutions for application to the specific needs of agriculture, cannabis, and the opioid epidemic.
The basic requirements of the systems to be developed include high-throughput transaction processing, traceability or tracking, visibility or monitoring, and transparency throughout the supply and value chains for the stakeholders. The development of this architecture will serve as an online commercial portal to service Pacific Software’s B2B accounts in the sectors below.
For application of its Agri-blockchain based system, Pacific Software will target farm-to-consumer exports to increase transparency, combat theft and counterfeit products, and reduce the health risks associated with shipping “tainted” agricultural products to other countries.
Perceiving blockchain as an ideal mechanism for the complexities of the cannabis industry, Pacific Software will strive to improve the transparency, compliance, and efficiency of the “seed-to-sale” supply chain in states where the plant is legal.
With the misuse of opioids on the rise worldwide, Pacific Software aims to apply its blockchain-based system to track opioids from pharmaceutical production to consumers and attempt to identify “Bad Actors” in the supply chain and fight against the global epidemic.
The portal will be structured in a B2B format where clients will pay the company transaction fees, royalties, cash, cash equivalents and other forms of compensation to utilize its Hyperledger blockchain applications for their business models.
As the company executes these strategies, each Hyperledger blockchain-based system designed may be organized separately in wholly owned subsidiaries. To enhance its portfolio of holdings, Pacific Software may consider investments in companies where selected markets have imminent profitable results, providing appreciable value for investors and shareholders.
Pacific Software, Inc. (PFSF), closed the day's trading session at $5.25, even for the day. The average volume for the last 3 months is 3 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $4.00/$5.25.

DeepMarkit Inc. (TSX-V: MKT) (OTC: MKTDF)
DeepMarkit Inc. (TSX.V: MKT) (OTCQB: MKTDF) sees its gamification marketing strategy growing in international markets, such as the Asia-Pacific region, where the enthusiasm shown by the population toward online gaming is growing along with smartphone ownership. Gamification utilizes the marriage of game-like features with a non-game platform to collect consumer data from online games. The result is the application of real time analytics and information created for retailer clients to better understand their customer audience (http://nnw.fm/riKb2). Also today, NetworkNewsWire released a report on the company detailing how MKTDF helps businesses convert players into leads and leads into customers using its proprietary promotions platform. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/mP0VB.
DeepMarkit Inc. (TSX-V: MKT) (OTC: 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.

Earth Science Tech Inc. currently has three wholly owned subsidiaries focused on developing its role as a world leader in the CBD space and expanding its work in the pharmaceutical and medical device sectors. These subsidiaries include:
- Earth Science Pharma, Inc., which is committed to development of low cost, noninvasive diagnostic tools, medical devices, testing processes and vaccines for sexually transmitted infections and/or diseases. Earth Science Pharmaceutical CEO and chief science officer Michel Aubé is leading the company’s research and development efforts. The company’s first medical device, MSN-2, is a home kit designed for the detection of STIs, such as chlamydia, from a self-obtained gynecological specimen. Earth Science Pharma is working to develop and bring to market medical devices and vaccines that meet the specific needs of women.

Earth Science Tech celebrated a significant, developmental year during 2017 by sharing its achievements in a condensed end-of-year report. Among the report’s highlights are the implementation of a development plan for the coming three years, which includes expanding into Canada and opening new manufacturing and shipping facilities. Of particular interest is the acquisition of Canna Inno Laboratories Inc., a company headquartered in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, which gives Earth Science Tech access to Canadian government grants offered to innovators in the pharmaceutical industry. ETST has also launched development of proprietary prophylactic therapies utilizing cannabidiol (CBD) to treat various forms of breast cancer.
In October 2017, ETST announced it is cooperating with the Clinique SIDA Amité (AIDS Friendship Clinic) for a mini-clinical trial, the last trial needed before the MSN-2 device, designed for the detection of STIs, enters molecular diagnostic trials. And in November 2017, the company began pre-launch human trials on a new CBD formula to fight against the U.S. opioid epidemic. The new formula, expected to decrease cravings and the negative effects of withdrawal in addicts, is based on industrial hemp CBD mixed with a known natural ingredient proven to help increase dopamine levels. ETST’s medical devices will first be launched in Vietnam, Djibouti and Morocco while the company awaits regulatory permission to enter the North American market.
The company expects to up-list to the OTCQB in early 2018, which management believes will attract well-funded institutional investors and pave the way to becoming the next billion-dollar-in-capitalization company on the OTC markets. Other highlights include completion of the company’s Scientific Advisory Council with a team of recognized scientists, the launching of several CBD-infused edible products and entry into the medical devices market through collaborative partnerships.
Earth Science Tech has signed a collaborate agreement with Laboratories BNK Canada, a private laboratory that will conduct the clinical studies necessary for MSN-2 medical device-related services to meet regulatory requirements. ETST has confirmed the MSN-2 device’s ability to detect chlamydia, and is working to validate similar results for gonorrhea, both highly infectious diseases that often have permanent consequences for patients. ETST will also add testing for trichomoniasis and a complete body fluid panel to detect the different serotypes of the human papillomavirus (HPV) that causes cervical cancer. These additions will help the company create sales opportunities in the global market for diagnostic testing of STDs that Transparency Market Research has indicated will grow to $108 billion by 2019.
Cannabis Therapeutics is in the development stage of two cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical drugs and three cannabinoid-based nutraceutical products targeting a variety of ailments such as anxiety, depression, triple negative breast cancer, and fatty liver disease, among others. Research into the benefits of the non-psychoactive cannabinoid molecules found in the cannabis plant is supported by ETST’s International Application for Provisional Patent titled “Cannabidiol Compositions Including Mixtures and Uses Thereof,” which was filed on October 8, 2015. Cannabis Thera’s R&D efforts are concentrated on developing CBD-based drugs and nutraceutical products and in working to integrate the CBD molecule with existing generic drug molecules to create more efficient medications with fewer and less severe side effects. A report in Hemp Business Journal predicts the CBD consumer market will grow to $2.1 billion by 2020, while other industry experts expect an increase to almost $3 billion by 2021. A recent report by Statista projects the U.S. consumer market for cannabinoid-based pharmaceuticals could reach $50 billion by the year 2029.

BLOCKStrain Technology Corp. (TSX.V: DNAX) (OTC: BKKSF)
BLOCKStrain Technology Corp. (TSX.V: DNAX) (OTC: BKKSF), through its easily integrated BLOCKStrain platform, enables cannabis growers to defend their intellectual property rights with an authentic, verifiable chain of evidence embedded in the blockchain from genome to sale. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/rp3pM.
BLOCKStrain Technology Corp. (TSX.V: DNAX) (OTC: BKKSF), a full-service software company headquartered in Vancouver, BC, Canada, has developed the first integrated blockchain platform that registers and tracks cannabis intellectual property (“IP”) from genome to sale. It is proprietary, immutable and cryptographically secure, thereby establishing a single source of truth for cannabis strains and their ownership.
With Canada set to legalize marijuana use for recreational purposes, and other jurisdictions following suit around the world, new challenges will emerge regarding the ability to provide a safe and legal inventory of a product that up until now was largely only available on the black market. Cannabis will be heavily tested and regulated by numerous regulatory bodies in Canada. The cannabis industry faces unique challenges that BLOCKStrain specifically helps it address, including:
- Mandatory Testing: Through BLOCKStrain’s platform and lab-testing partners, the process is more efficient and streamlined, cutting the administrative burden in half and getting products to market faster;
- DNA Based Product Validation: The underlying blockchain technology creates a genetic fingerprint that identifies and validates the product electronically so any participant on the platform, including consumers, can view and track what’s happening with that product from genome to sale;
- Intellectual Property: Third, and perhaps most importantly, the BLOCKStrain platform protects the intellectual property of growers and breeders. This is important for the industry’s growth as products evolve and develop. If a craft grower, for example, creates a popular strain with unique characteristics, it will be able to protect its intellectual property by simply registering the strain’s genome with BLOCKStrain and locking that data into the blockchain. It will reside there forever and will be readily accessible in the event of future disputes, bringing a level of trust to the industry and ensuring licensing fees are paid to all players in the market.
VERIFICATION = CERTIFICATION
BLOCKStrain’s genetics verification process is authentic and incredibly effective. User groups register by creating an account with BLOCKStrain, which starts the process. Organizations and independent growers submit seeds, flower and post-extraction product for testing to a registered and approved testing facility, which then submits test results to BLOCKStrain. Pre-existing data of genetic cannabis strains can also be submitted via BLOCKStrain verification administrators, with those results being added to the user group’s blockchain account. Submissions are entered into BLOCKStrain, and the transaction is completed and recorded.
Each time an item is tested and verified by the network, a Registration Affidavit is auto-generated and given a unique “BLOCKStrain Address” along with a traceable QR Code. Producers, patients and consumers are able to not only verify the test but can also rate the product, write reviews and share opinions. This detail is stored within BLOCKStrain and, just like the test results, cannot be tampered with or modified. Verification and certification are earned by all parties for their participation.
SAFE CONSUMER SUPPLY
BLOCKStrain demystifies the seed-to-sale process for all relevant stakeholders including producers, distributors, shippers, government agencies and consumers by creating a repository of cannabis genomes on an immutable, shared ledger. Thousands of cannabis strains exist and cultivators are breeding new strains all the time. The proliferation of cannabis strains can prove problematic for consumers since there are more than 500 known chemical compounds in a single plant. Furthermore, since several dozens of these compounds have been identified as pharmacologically active, it becomes more and more difficult for consumers to know what they are purchasing.
It is for this reason that being able to quantify the genetics, potency and equivalencies among cannabis products is crucial to the future of legalized cannabis. The difference is not so much in the name or brand attached to the cannabis, but the DNA of the plant itself. BLOCKStrain ensures product integrity, safety, regulatory compliance, product licensing and authenticity – all vital elements for the emerging cannabis industry. This technology also bolsters the process of meeting government regulatory standards by providing real-time visibility of industry operations to agencies assigned to enforce and regulate cannabis activity.
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS
BLOCKStrain allows for the defense of intellectual property rights for the grower with an authentic, verifiable chain of evidence embedded in the blockchain itself. Proof of ownership for a specific strain of cannabis is paramount in a multibillion dollar industry. Real life ownership disputes have already begun in the industry with legal battles underway. Unfortunately, the framework for resolving these disputes has yet to be defined and they are not likely to be resolved anytime soon.
Consumers and regulators alike want to know whether a cannabis product grown and sold at a local dispensary is safe and meets quality control standards. BLOCKStrain enhances trust of origin from genome-to-sale as cannabis flows through the supply chain, verifying critical steps in the process such as who is growing the plant, which seed is planted and where did it come from, whether pesticides were used, how much was grown, which tests are used to establish quality and potency, where the product is transported and how, and whether possession limits are meeting regulatory standards.
In summary, BLOCKStrain has developed the most comprehensive, secure and community-driven cannabis genetics archival platform for cannabis breeders and growers, large and small, to protect and release their varieties into the public domain, all while compensating and rewarding them for their contributions.
BLOCKStrain Technology Corp. (BKKSF), closed the day's trading session at $0.1901, off by 11.17%, on 155,100 volume with 18 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 46,267 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.109/$0.85.

Standard Lithium Ltd. (TSX.V: SLL) (FRA: S5L) (OTC: STLHF)
NetworkNewsWire ("NNW"), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company, today announces the publication of an editorial featuring Standard Lithium Ltd. (TSX.V: SLL) (FRA: S5L) (OTC: STLHF), a client of NNW engaged in the testing and proving of the commercial viability of lithium extraction from over 150,000 acres of permitted brine operations utilizing the Company’s proprietary selective extraction technology.
Standard Lithium Ltd. (OTC: STLHF) is focused on unlocking the value of existing large-scale U.S.-based lithium brine resources that can quickly be brought into production. The Company believes new lithium production can rapidly be brought on stream by minimizing project risks at selection stage; resource, political & geographic, and regulatory & permitting; and by leveraging advances in lithium extraction technologies and processes.
The Company’s flagship project is in southern Arkansas. The more than 180,000-acre “Smackover Project” is in the most prolific and productive brine processing region in North America. Agreements with large commercial brine operators in the region will allow Standard Lithium to utilize the extensive existing infrastructure, including brine supply and disposal pipelines, water, power and a trained workforce to fast-track project development timelines.
“Arkansas produces about 9.4 billion gallons of brine per year, according to 2010-2016 average statistics reported by the Arkansas Oil & Gas Commission.”
Standard Lithium signed a binding MoU with global specialty chemicals company LANXESS Corporation and its U.S. affiliate Great Lakes Chemical Corporation with the purpose of demonstrating the commercial viability of extraction of lithium from brine (“tail brine”) that is produced as part of LANXESS’ bromine extraction business at its three Southern Arkansas facilities.
LANXESS’ land operations in Southern Arkansas encompass more than 150,000 acres, 10,000 brine leases and surface agreements and 250 miles of pipelines. LANXESS extracts the brine from its wells located throughout the area, and the brine is transported to the three Arkansas plants through a network of pipelines. The three bromine extraction plants currently employ approximately 500 people and process and reinject several hundred thousand barrels of brine per day.
Standard Lithium has developed a breakthrough rapid lithium extraction process that reduces the recovery time of extracting lithium from brine to as little as several hours vs. the current industry method that takes years. The process is also much more environmentally friendly with a significantly smaller footprint than the conventional processes. The company has a signed agreement to locate a demonstration scale lithium extraction plant inside one of LANXESS’ chemical plants in Southern Arkansas.
The Company has also signed an option agreement with NYSE-listed Tetra Technologies for the lithium rights for exploration, extraction, and possible commercial development on approximately 30,000 acres of brine leases in Southern Arkansas. The largest available land package.
Recent laboratory results of four brine samples recovered from two existing wells in Standard Lithium’s project area showed lithium concentrations ranging between 347-461 mg/L lithium, with an average of 450 mg/L lithium in one of the wells and 350 mg/L in the other. Geological modeling of the project area is complete, and a maiden resource report is on the horizon.
World demand for lithium continues to surge. The global lithium compounds market is projected to reach U.S. $5.87 billion by 2020 at a compound annual growth rate of 13.22% between 2015 and 2020. Lithium-ion batteries are the fastest growing segment of the market.
Standard Lithium’s commitment to being a premier, innovation-driven company focused on developing and commercializing new modern processes for lithium extraction is bolstered by the leading experts that comprise the company’s Scientific Advisory Council. Each member was selected because of their experience and expertise in areas that are central to and/or complement Standard Lithium’s current development plans. Standard Lithium recently welcomed to the Council world-renowned chemist Dr. Barry Sharpless, the recipient of the 2001 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work on chirally catalyzed oxidation reactions.
Standard Lithium is led by a team of professionals with proven strong technical and project development skills. CEO Robert Mintak has a global network of industry contacts and is a pioneer in the rapidly evolving lithium space. COO and President Dr. Andy Robinson is an experienced geoscientist with 20+ years of experience and a PhD in Geochemistry from the University of Bristol, UK. Dr. Robinson has worked on a wide range of projects in the resource, power and energy sectors in Europe, Africa, and North and South America.
The company recently appointed Robert Cross as non-executive chairman. Cross is an engineer with 25 years of experience as a financier and company builder in the mining and oil and gas sectors. He co-founded and serves as chairman of B2Gold, a top-performing growing gold producer which is expected to achieve nearly 1 million ounces of low-cost gold production in 2018. He was also co-founder and chairman of Bankers Petroleum Ltd.; co-founder and chairman of Petrodorado Energy Ltd.; and until October 2007 was the non-executive chairman of Northern Orion Resources Inc. He also was previously the chairman and CEO of Yorkton Securities Inc., and a partner in investment banking with Gordon Capital Corp. in Toronto. Cross has an engineering degree from the University of Waterloo (1982) and received an MBA from Harvard in 1987.
Following a multi-million-dollar financing in Q1 2018, Standard Lithium is well-positioned to meet its upcoming milestones including two maiden resource reports and the launch of its breakthrough rapid lithium extraction technology.
Standard Lithium Ltd. (OTC: STLHF), closed the day's trading session at $1.16, off by 4.92%, on 114,532 volume with 80 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 33,732 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.604/$2.23.
