Penny Stock Hub, Proactive Investors, Mining Capital, Big News Network, OTC Markets, Stockhouse, Stockwatch, Real Investment Advice, Mining Journal, Investing.com, Simply Wall St, and Investors Hangout reported previously on American Battery Metals Corporation (ABML), and today we report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
American Battery Metals Corporation is a premier battery metal exploration and development company. Its concentration is on its Railroad Valley battery metal project in the State of Nevada with the goal of becoming a significant domestic supplier of battery metals to the growing electric vehicles (EV) and battery storage markets in the U.S. American Battery Metals is based in Incline Village, Nevada.
The Company previously went by the name Oroplata Resources, Inc. It changed its corporate name to American Battery Metals Corporation in May of 2019. The Company lists on the OTC Markets’ OTCQB.
American Battery Metals, through its subsidiaries, engages in the exploration and development of lithium properties. The Company announced this past July that results of its first geophysical exploration program demonstrate that a large and undefined reservoir exists on its property in Railroad Valley, Nevada. The geophysical Magnetotelluric (MT) Survey was conducted over a square mile area by Zonge International of Reno, Nevada.
The results of the geophysical survey indicate two large conductive zones located within the project area. "Conductive Zones" could indicate the presence of Lithium concentration in shallow clay deposits and in deeper Brine deposits. One of these conductive zones was earlier drill tested to a depth of 3,000 feet.
Recently, American Battery Metals announced its initial drill results on its property in Railroad Valley, Nevada. The drill results of all assays validate detectable lithium at all intervals, from the surface and down to 3,000 feet below. Lithium was detectable at each 10 feet of intervals, with values of greater than 100 PPM (parts per million) with continuous samples. There was even more value detected in the 1,900 to 2,300 feet down range.
In late August, American Battery Metals announced that it was renewing all 1,300 of its claims with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), encompassing 26,000 acres in Railroad Valley, Nevada. In addition, its strategic plan is vertically integrated as it develops pioneering extraction and battery recycling technologies. The Company recently opened another office in Tonopah, and a full scale laboratory in Virginia City. American Battery Metals continues to grow horizontally and vertically.
American Battery Metals’ management will present at the Fall Investor Summit Conference on Tuesday, September 17 at 2pm EDT. The Company’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Doug Cole, will present and hold one-on-one meetings at the Conference in New York City. The conference will take place at JW Marriott Essex House, where American Battery Metals will present at 2:00pm EDT.

Aurania Resources Ltd. (AUIAF)
Metals News, Finance Recorder, Triple H Stocks, Junior Mining Network, The Gold Telegraph, Northern Miner, Geology for Investors, Wallet Investor, Stockhouse, Gold Stock Data, TradingView, Investors Hangout, Dividend Investor, and Market Screener reported beforehand on Aurania Resources Ltd. (AUIAF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
OTCQB-listed, Aurania Resources Ltd. engages in the identification, evaluation, acquisition and exploration of mineral property interests. A junior mineral exploration company, its focus is on precious metals and copper and its flagship asset is The Lost Cities – Cutucu Project. This Project is in the Jurassic Metallogenic Belt in the eastern foothills of the Andes mountain range of southeastern Ecuador. Aurania Resources has its head office in Toronto, Ontario.
In addition, Aurania has properties in Canton Valais, Switzerland – Siviez (Uranium, Copper and Gold); Marécottes (Uranium); and Mont Chemin (Gold). All of these properties are 100 percent held through the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary AuroVallis SARL.
The Cordillera del Condor – the eastern foothills to the Andes in southeastern Ecuador – hosts a well-endowed mineral belt. It contains 26 million ounces (Moz) of gold and close to 40 billion pounds (Blbs) of copper in NI-43-101 resources held by varied companies. The Lost Cities – Cutucu Project lies along-trend of that mineral belt. Consequently, Aurania Resources’ exploration is focused on finding the same types of deposits that occur in the Cordillera del Condor.
Concerning the Switzerland Projects, Aurania made formal application in 2015 to obtain new five-year permits for its Swiss projects. It was advised that the Canton Authority (the Ministry) intended to revise the Swiss Mining Law before issuing new permits. The applications were deemed legally “frozen”. As such, Aurania Resources believes all rights, title and interest under the permits, have been preserved. To June 30, 2018, Company Management is unaware of any change in the status of the permits.
Aurania Resources announced this past July that the stream sediment sampling program that has been completed over 50 percent of the Lost Cities - Cutucu Project in southeastern Ecuador, identified 17 "epithermal" targets for gold and silver. The latest addition to the target list is "Apai". This is an epithermal target near the southern boundary of the Project. The Apai target comprises several networks of streams that contain elevated concentrations of pathfinder elements - naturally-occurring arsenic and antimony, among others - that typically occur in haloes that enclose epithermal gold-silver systems.
Recently, Aurania Resources reported that further exploration has refined its Apai target for gold and silver in its Lost Cities - Cutucu Project. Also, Apai is suspected to be linked geologically to the copper target that SolGold PLC identified on its mineral concessions 10 kilometers (km) to the south.
Last week, Aurania Resources reported that follow-up exploration is defining additional, extensive epithermal targets for gold and silver at the Tiria target area on the flanks of a 15 km trend of silver-zinc-lead mineralization at its Lost Cities - Cutucu Project. The Tiria epithermal target was originally described as 'Tiria East' and 'Tiria West'. Aurania has now identified four separate targets within the extensive Tiria target area. These targets lie on the margins of a core of silver-zinc-lead, providing strong indications of a large mineralized system.
Aurania Resources Ltd. (AUIAF), closed Monday's trading session at $1.91, off by 0.686356%, on 4,605 volume with 8 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 9,682 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $1.53418004/$3.04999995.

NuVista Energy Ltd. (NUVSF)
Invest Tribune, Tech Know Bits, Macroaxis, Investors Hangout, Morningstar, TipRanks, Wallet Investor, Dividend Investor, TeleTrader, Capital Cube, Street Insider, Market Screener, Nasdaq, MarketWatch, and Stockhouse reported earlier on NuVista Energy Ltd. (NUVSF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
NuVista Energy Ltd. is an oil and natural gas company listed on the OTC Markets. It engages in the exploration for, and the development and production of, oil and natural gas reserves in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin. The Company’s main emphasis is on the scalable and repeatable condensate-rich Montney formation in the Alberta Deep Basin (Wapiti Montney). Established in 2003, NuVista Energy has its corporate office in Calgary, Alberta.
The Company is advancing its Wapiti Montney condensate-rich natural gas resource play, which has strong economics and considerable upside potential. Condensate is vital to the heavy oil business as heavy oil bitumen must be combined with condensate to create the viscosity needed to permit transportation on pipelines. Condensate sales account for greater than 60 percent of NuVista Energy revenues.
Regarding Wapiti Montney, the Company holds rights in roughly 166,720 gross acres of land that are prospective for the Triassic Montney formation with an approximate working interest (WI) of 89.8 percent. The Montney formation in this area is typified by high rate condensate-rich natural gas.
NuVista also has roughly 1,600 Boe/d of net production from various other Triassic zones on 52,800 net acres of non-Montney land. These Assets are to the northeast of the Pipestone Montney acreage and comprise largely non-operated, low decline unit production with below industry average asset retirement obligations.
Additionally, included is a 39 percent operated WI in the area gathering and compression system and the Wembley gas plant. NuVista Energy also has non-core operations in three additional areas of Alberta whose combined production in 2017 averaged 900 Boe/d versus 2,761 Boe/d in 2016 because of asset divestitures and production decline.
Recently, NuVista Energy announced results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019. During the quarter, the Company produced 50,390 Boe/d, meeting the top portion of the prior guidance range of 48,000 – 51,000 Boe/d. The result was 14 percent higher than the prior quarter and 40 percent higher than the same period last year. NuVista also has NuVista realized adjusted funds flow of $64.3 million ($0.29/share, basic). This represents a decrease of 8 percent per share in comparison to the previous quarter driven mainly by reduced natural gas and NGL prices partially offset by increased production. This resulted in an adjusted funds flow netback of $14.01/Boe.
The Company executed a successful Q2 capital expenditure (capex) program of $89.2 million. This includes the drilling of 11 (11.0 net) wells in its condensate rich Wapiti Montney play. Nine wells were completed during the quarter; 11 were turned in line. Eleven wells have now been drilled at Pipestone South at an average of $2.8MM per well. This is a 34 percent improvement over the historic average NuVista Energy drill cost on a per meter basis.
NuVista Energy Ltd. (NUVSF), closed Monday's trading session at $1.91, up 18.7073%, on 2,070 volume with 5 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 29,334 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $1.08000004/$5.76000022.

Black Ridge Oil & Gas, Inc. (ANFC)
TopPennyStockMovers, Wall Street Resources, and Wall Street Reporting reported earlier on Black Ridge Oil & Gas, Inc. (ANFC), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Black Ridge Oil & Gas, Inc. is a growth-oriented oil and gas exploration and production enterprise. The Company is concentrating on non-operated Bakken and Three Forks properties. At present, it controls more than 10,000 net Bakken and/or Three Forks acres. Established in 2010, Black Ridge Oil & Gas is headquartered in Minnetonka, Minnesota. The Company lists on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB.
On June 21, 2016, Black Ridge Oil & Gas closed its debt restructuring agreement. It remains a public company. Its strategy shifted from asset owner to asset Manager.
Black Ridge Oil & Gas, along with its capital providers, is working to acquire oil and gas assets throughout the major U.S. onshore basins. Since 2010, it has participated in drilling greater than 300 Bakken or Three Forks wells in North Dakota and Montana.
The Company receives short term income from management fees from the different joint ventures (JVs) - Black Ridge Holding Company, LLC initially; Merced Black Ridge, LLC (established July 2015), and others as it makes acquisitions.
In essence, Black Ridge Oil & Gas concentrates on its asset management business and partnering with investment sponsors to acquire oil and gas assets. Moreover, the Company concentrates on energy loans and providing capital for oil and gas drilling/completion projects.
Black Ridge Oil & Gas takes a minority rather than majority interest in its wells. This strategy produces a highly-diversified portfolio of Bakken and Three Forks wells across the Williston Basin for the Company.
Black Ridge currently manages Working Interests (WIs) in more than 350 gross Bakken and/or Three Forks wells. These produce roughly 1,500 net BOEPD (Barrels of Oil Equivalent Per Day).
Black Ridge (being a non-operator) participates in Bakken and Three Forks wells on a proportionate basis. This is according to its leasehold interest in each drilling unit drilled by its operating partners.
The Company, as sponsor of Black Ridge Acquisition Corp. (BRACU), is aggressively looking to acquire oil and gas assets throughout the major United States basins. Black Ridge Acquisition is a $138 million special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) focused on identifying a growth oriented merger candidate.
Regarding its Merced Black Ridge Partnership, Merced provides equity capital. This capital is used to acquire/develop non-operated assets in all U.S. onshore basins. Black Ridge sources deals and manages day to day business.
Black Ridge Oil & Gas, Inc. (ANFC), closed Monday's trading session at $0.0217, up 34.7826%, on 49,206 volume with 6 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 76,526 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0131/$0.05.
BioSolar, Inc. (BSRC)
Stock Roach, Stock Preacher, Penny Stock Rumble, Beacon Equity Research, TheLightningPicks, HoleinOneStocks.net, Investor News Source, StockHideout, TopPennyStockMovers, PennyTrader Publisher, OTCPicks, MicroStockProfit, and BioSolar Newsletter reported earlier on BioSolar, Inc. (BSRC), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
BioSolar, Inc. is developing an inventive technology to increase the storage capacity, reduce the cost, and extend the life of lithium-ion batteries. The Company initially focused its development effort on high capacity cathode materials since most of contemporary Li-ion batteries are "cathode limited." With the objective of creating BioSolar’s next generation super battery technology, the Company is presently investigating high capacity anode materials. BioSolar has its corporate headquarters in Santa Clarita, California.
BioSolar has its BioBackSheet®. The Company is the leading commercial provider of bio-based solar panel backsheets. A backsheet is a required insulating film in all solar photovoltaic panels. Its primary purpose is to protect the solar panel components, specifically the solar cells and wires. The Company’s BioBackSheet® is the only commercially available Underwriters Laboratory (UL) certified bio-based backsheet.
The Company is developing BioSolar supercapacitors. This is technology for lessening the cost of storing the energy of the sun. BioSolar co-owns the patent-application for this supercapacitor technology with the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB). The Company is funding a sponsored research program to advance its development.
Through integrating BioSolar supercapacitors as the high power front-end to battery banks, with fewer battery banks than would usually be required, daytime solar energy can be rapidly and cost-effectively stored for night-time use at a significantly lower cost. The technology will enable solar energy systems users to decrease their dependence or go completely off the electric utility power grid.
BioSolar’s management believes that use of its silicon-metal (Si-M) anode materials, currently under development, can help reduce the cost of lithium-ion batteries. The expectation is that the Company’s Si-M anode material will be much less expensive than that of the benchmark silicon-carbon anode material that is the key cost issue typically associated with battery technology. BioSolar’s belief is that its strategy of pursuing anode material advancements to support next-generation lithium-ion batteries can play an important role within the electric vehicle sector, and the broader energy storage technology industry.
In 2017, BioSolar successfully completed the laboratory phase of its silicon nanocomposite alloy anode material technology development. BioSolar (with data that suggests its technology can attain considerably higher capacity at decreased costs,) began the process of identifying potential strategic partners for commercial development of its proprietary battery technology.
In addition, BioSolar signed a Joint Development Agreement with Top Battery, a foremost lithium-ion battery manufacturer. Furthermore, BioSolar developed a proprietary additive technology. This technology has the potential to improve all kinds of silicon anode materials. This includes Si carbon composite, Si oxide type, as well as Si alloys.
Furthermore, the Company demonstrated that its additive technology exhibited substantial improvement in battery capacity and capacity retention when applied to Si anodes made from Si micro-particles, a form of raw silicon more cost effective than Si nano-particles.
BioSolar, Inc. (BSRC), closed Monday's trading session at $0.026, up 30.6533%, on 770,864 volume with 31 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 1,122,001 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.016499999/$0.071999996.
American Power Group Corp. (APGI)
Marketbeat.com, Stock News Now, and SmallCapVoice reported on American Power Group Corp. (APGI), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
American Power Group Corp. designs and produces proven alternative fuel solutions for stationary power generators, backup power systems, and commercial transportation. The Company’s alternative energy subsidiary, American Power Group, Inc. (APG), provides a cost-effective patented Turbocharged Natural Gas® Dual Fuel Conversion Technology for vehicular, stationary, as well as off-road mobile diesel engines. American Power Group is headquartered in Lynnfield, Massachusetts and lists on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB.
The Company’s patented Turbocharged Natural Gas® Dual Fuel Conversion Technology is a unique non-invasive software driven solution. It converts existing vehicular and stationary diesel engines to run simultaneously on diesel and different kinds of natural gas. This includes compressed natural gas, liquefied natural gas, conditioned well-head/ditch gas or bio-methane gas with the flexibility to return to 100 percent diesel fuel operation at any time. It is a ground-breaking non-invasive energy enhancement system.
American Power Group (with its proprietary Flare to Fuel™ process technology) can convert captured gases into natural gas liquids (NGLs) that can sell as heating fluids, emulsifiers, or be further processed by refiners. Via the Company’s Trident Associated Gas Capture and Recovery Technology, it can provide oil and gas producers a flare capture service solution for associated gases produced at their remote and stranded well sites.
Regarding American Power Group’s dual fuel, methane gas is metered into a diesel engine's air intake, before the turbocharger, by the air filter. As the enriched air/gas mixture increases the engine's power, the diesel's own governor senses the power increase and backs off on diesel flow. The system maintains a balance of gas-to-diesel ratios.
The maintaining of the energized fuel balance is with a proprietary read-only electronic controller system. This ensures the engines operate at original equipment manufacturers' (OEMs) specified temperatures and pressures. Installation on a broad collection of engine models and end-market applications demands no engine modifications.
Recently, American Power Group announced that it will extend the filing of its June 30, 2017 Quarterly Form 10Q through SEC Form 12b-25. The Company announced on June 6, 2017, a corporate wide realignment of its strategic direction, reallocation of resources, and reduction in workforce in response to considerable operating losses because of the effect that ongoing low oil prices were having on its dual fuel and flare capture businesses. The realignment resulted in a decrease in annual operating costs of greater than $2 million on a going forward basis.
American Power Group Corp. (APGI), closed Monday's trading session at $0.0198, up 65.00%, on 94,300 volume with 13 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 14,452 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.002899999/$0.137500002.

Sproutly Canada, Inc. (OTCQB: SRUTF) (CSE: SPR) (FRA: 38G)
Sproutly Canada, Inc. (CSE: SPR) (OTCQB: SRUTF) (FRA: 38G) was featured today in the 420 with CNW by CannabisNewsWire. The cost of cannabis flower in Michigan has risen by about 50 percent from the time medical marijuana became available in the state nearly ten months ago. In August, the wholesale price of an ounce reached $249, the highest it has ever been from the time the regulated market was opened.
Sproutly Canada, Inc. (OTCQB: SRUTF) (TSX.V: SPR) (FRA: 38G) is developing and bringing to market cannabis consumer products with a focus on beverages. The company’s core mission is to become the leading supplier of water-soluble cannabis solutions and bio-natural oils for brands in the emerging cannabis beverage and edibles market.
To make this happen, Sproutly acquired Infusion Biosciences to bring to market a patent-pending Aqueous Phytorecovery Process (APP) technology, a fundamental paradigm shift within the cannabis industry. Replacing traditional water-compatible solutions with true natural water solubility improves the body’s ability to utilize cannabinoids, making the effect of the cannabis almost immediate.
This revolutionary process doesn’t alter the cannabis compounds and provides an onset time and offset time that mimics the same effects as inhaled marijuana. That means consumers may feel effects in five minutes or less and be free from the desired effect in approximately 90 minutes—a vastly different ingestion pattern than current methods. In addition, the water-based cannabinoids can be mixed with other liquids and stay dissolved in those liquids. The application of water-soluble cannabis infusions has potential to be widespread in both medicinal and recreational cannabis sectors, giving Sproutly a distinctive edge in a market with untapped potential.
Sproutly’s business model is focused on processing rather than cultivating, which means its success is not constrained to growing its own cannabis. The company does own a Toronto-based, ACMPR-licensed facility designed and built with a focus on cultivating pharmaceutical-grade cannabis to produce and formulate the first natural, truly water-soluble cannabis solution. Its water-soluble ingredients and bio-natural oils will deliver revolutionary brands to international markets that are searching for well-defined commercial products.
Sproutly’s entrance in the cannabis market is perfectly timed as cannabis is moving towards mainstream acceptance. Potential users are, however, interested in consuming cannabis products as drinks and using it as oils rather than smoking. The potential cannabis beverage market is staggering, and with Sproutly owning the exclusive rights to APP technology in Canada, Australia, Jamaica, Israel and the entire European Union, the company is looking at significant international expansion opportunities.
Sproutly plans to capitalize on these international opportunities by executing on partnerships with local and globally established consumer brands to leverage their existing customer bases, expand brand loyalty, and assist with marketing and support distribution networks to deliver scientific breakthroughs with speed and efficiency?worldwide.
Sproutly believes that talent drives growth. The company is committed to bringing together the best and brightest minds in the cannabis space to help with their mission to disrupt the global beverage and consumables market.

Its world-class management team includes a proven group of leaders with outstanding executive and operational experience specific to consumer packaged goods, consumer products, cannabis and finance industries.
TGOD is positioned as one of the highest quality and most cost efficient cannabis producers in Canada by leveraging innovative technology and low-cost power solutions. It holds one of the largest land packages under a single ACMPR license in Canada, providing future cannabis Agri-park style development and opportunities for joint ventures, licensing and distribution partners. Its industry leading alliance partners include Eaton, Ledcor Group and Hamilton Utilities Corp.
Eaton is the second largest power management company in the world and promises to supply innovative and cost effective power solutions to meet TGOD’s growing demands. Construction management is supplied by Ledcor, Canada’s second largest multidisciplinary construction company and a pioneer in the Green Building Industry. An alliance with Hamilton Utilities Corp allows TGOD to reduce its power costs from $0.13 per kWh to less than $0.05 per kWh. Greenhouse design is provided by Larssen Greenhouse, whose 25-plus years of experience in building some of the most modern and sophisticated greenhouses in the industry will provide TGOD with state of the art, climate-controlled hybrid greenhouse solutions.
Canada is quickly becoming a hub for cannabis investors with over $1.3 billion raised by Canadian companies to date. There are 58 licensed producers to service a population of 36 million and only two organic producers. TGOD, which holds licenses in Ontario and Quebec, is strategically located in both provinces that together claim 22 million Canadians as residents. Another estimated 57 million people live next door in six U.S. bordering states.
The Canadian cannabis market currently has a massive supply demand gap, which makes TGOD’s expansion plans even more important to investors. These plans include a combined build-out capacity of 970,000 square feet, allowing TGOD to produce 116,000 kg annually of organic cannabis. Upon completion, Phase One in Hamilton, Ontario, which is fully funded, will provide 150,000 square feet of growing capacity capable of producing up to 14,000 kg of cannabis or $112 million in revenue at $8 a gram.
The company’s Quebec expansion will be constructed on a recently secured 75-acre property near Montreal. This new property has a planned expansion of 820,000 square feet capable of producing 102,000 kg of organic cannabis. The first phase of this expansion is underway and construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2018. Quebec’s first phase will consist of 220,000 square feet capable of producing 22,000 kg of cannabis. Two additional expansion phases will add 250,000 square feet (26,000 kg of cannabis) and 350,000 square feet (54,000 kg of cannabis). Power costs remain exceptionally low for both facilities with access to all other needed utilities available and close by.
TGOD also plans to gain a share of the burgeoning cannabis oils market which by Q1 2017 accounted for 49 percent of all cannabis sold in Canada under the ACMPR, up from only 27% in Q2 2016. TGOD has ordered a purpose-built extraction laboratory with an estimated commission in Q4 of 2017. This is a commercial-scale CO2 extraction unit capable of processing up to 12,000 kg of raw material per year and producing approximately $170 million worth of organic cannabis oils. Raw cannabis oil provides a significant downstream manufacturing opportunity into several potential recreational market verticals including edibles, beverages, topicals and concentrates.
Data from the Canadian ACMPR Market Trends report indicates a rising number of consumers will continue to seek out healthier, less conspicuous ways to consume cannabis, ensuring sales of organic cannabis oil products remain brisk. Organic cannabis products demand a significant premium compared to non-organic products and the demand keeps growing.
Plans to take the company public are underway with an initial public offering (IPO) slated for January 2018. In November, the company raised $13 million in equity financing and in March closed a $27 million non-brokered private placement. Another $20 million is currently being raised before the IPO in January, which will be utilized for expansion plans.
TGOD is uniquely positioned between the medical and recreational cannabis industry since Canada is scheduled to legalize cannabis for all adults in mid-2018. As of August 2017, TGOD has 2,400 shareholders. Established in 2012, TGOD’s motto, “Making Life Better,” can be seen in its strategic partnerships, top quality management team, and dedication to organic farming and principles.

HTC Extraction Systems (TSX.V: HTC)
HTC Extraction Systems (TSX.V: HTC) recorded an increase in same-period year-over-year revenues from operations during the first six months of 2019, rising from $560,260 to $1.85 million, according to unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial results announced recently (http://nnw.fm/4XONk).
HTC Extraction Systems (TSX.V: HTC) has developed and optimized proprietary technologies designed for biomass extraction, distillation and purification of ethanol and ethanol-based solvents used for the hemp biomass and cannabidiol (“CBD”) industry, as well as gas and liquid extraction. HTC’s extraction & purification systems are engineered to large-scale to reduce capital and operating costs while delivering superior performance measured by reduced energy usage, lowered emissions and improved quality of the product produced.
Advanced Extraction Technologies
For more than 14 years, HTC has developed and optimized proprietary technology and purification systems used for biomass, gas and liquid extraction. These technologies include:
- LCDesign® – Low-cost design for modular gas, liquid and biomass extraction systems optimizes plant design, thus reducing capital and operating costs.
- PDOEngine™ – Software-based design algorithms accurately model and simulate gas, liquid and biomass extraction processing.
- Delta Solvents™ – Custom-designed, ethanol-based solvent mixtures and additives that optimize production and reduce costs. Technology development is being conducted at HTC’s sponsored research facilities at the University of Calgary.
Delta Purification® Technology
HTC’s patented Delta Purification® technology will purify, recycle and reuse the extraction ethanol used in the CBD extraction process while managing and reducing any CBD waste losses through the re-extraction of all wastes collected from the purified ethanol. Current and new technologies include:
- Delta CBD Reclaiming System: Reclaiming and purifying ethanol for use in CBD extraction from biomass. Reduces required heat to prevent damage of the chemical attributes of the CBD molecule, allowing extracted CBD to meet food-grade targets for human consumption.
- Delta Solvent Reclaiming System: Reclaiming and purifying ethanol-based solvents, such as single, mixed and formulated amines, for use in natural gas processing and post-combustion CO2 capturing processes.
- Delta Glycol Reclaiming System: Reclaiming and purifying glycols, such as mono-ethylene glycol and tri-ethylene glycol for use in natural gas dehydration processes.
Hemp Biomass and Tolling Contracts
HTC has entered into a hemp biomass tolling agreement for the 2019 crop year involving a supply of hemp biomass from a hemp grower in Saskatchewan, Canada. The hemp grower utilizes five varieties of Health Canada-approved cultivars as the genetic foundation. HTC will process and extract CBD FSO distillate from the hemp biomass. As a tolling fee payment, HTC will receive a percentage of the extracted CBD FSO distillate for its processing, extraction, purification and distillation services.
Additional hemp biomass tolling contracts with producers and hemp biomass providers are being negotiated in the U.S. for the 2020 hemp crop growing year. HTC will provide “local-to-grower” drying-to-biomass storage capability and transportation of dried biomass to an HTC, location to be determined, future US based, extraction facility. HTC is also in negotiation with a 60,000-acre, recognized Canadian farm leader, who is a significant hemp biomass producer, for a similar hemp biomass tolling contract.
Large users of ethanol and solvents for plant oil extraction demand reduced capital and operating costs. HTC’s re3™ (reclaim, recycle, reuse) technology can save up to 30% of the required fluid costs. The increasing cost of new extraction ethanol, combined with the cost of used ethanol disposal, creates a unique opportunity whereby the re3™ technology will create cost savings, while meeting environmental responsibilities.
The growth of ethanol and CO2 used in CBD production has created a new demand for reliable commercial scale ethanol reclaimer systems. The Delta Purification® ethanol system meets this new demand.
Sales and Offtake Agreements
HTC intends to leverage its relationship with its related entity, Purely Canada Foods™, to provide sales and distribution for its Ingredient CBD market under the brand of Purely Canada Hemp™, Purely Canada CBD™, Purely Canada Cannabinoids™. Purely Canada Hemp™ will develop risk managed multi-year ingredient supply contracts with its existing and new Global Food, Beverage and Animal Food Industry Customers.
HTC has focused the Canadian implementation of its BOOM (build, own, operate and maintain) extraction tolling strategy on a location near Regina, Saskatchewan. HTC is currently constructing a 19,000-square-foot GMP Euro compliant extraction tolling facility on six acres of land that will include biomass processing, extraction, implementation of DeltaSolv™ technologies and Delta Purification® systems, distillate and refining equipment, laboratory quality control and testing operations, and on-site office and admin facilities.

Standard Lithium Ltd. (TSX.V: SLL) (FRA: S5L) (OTC: STLHF)
Lithium-focused exploration company Standard Lithium (TSX.V: SLL) (FRA: S5L) (OTCQX: STLHF) today announced that its CEO Robert Mintak will be joining host Sam Jaffe of Cairn ERA and other industry experts at the Battery Next Summit. To view the full press release, visit: http://nnw.fm/0HwuO.
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.

Grapefruit Boulevard Investments Inc. (IGNG)
Grapefruit Boulevard Investments (OTCQB: IGNG), a Los Angeles based cannabis company which has been licensed by the state of California to both manufacture and distribute cannabis products in California since January 2018, today announced its August 22, 2019, entry into a formal Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) with a privately held manufacturer of a novel patented and trademarked delivery system (the “patchless patch”). To view the full press release, visit: http://nnw.fm/iTY7k.
Grapefruit Boulevard Investments Inc., a California corporation (“Grapefruit”), as of May 31, 2019, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Imaging3 Inc. (OTC: IGNG), a Delaware corporation whose shares of $.001 par value common stock are publicly traded on the OTCMarkets OTCQB Market under the symbol “IGNG.” IGNG is subject to the reporting requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and files annual and quarterly reports pursuant thereto. Grapefruit holds licenses originally issued by the State of California in January 2018 to both manufacture and distribute cannabis products. Grapefruit’s management now owns a controlling interest in IGNG which now owns 100% of Grapefruit’s outstanding shares. As a result, IGNG’s financial reports will consolidate both IGNG’s and Grapefruit’s balance sheet, statement of operation and statement of cash flows and IGNG and Grapefruit will be operated as a single company. IGNG intends to change its name to Grapefruit and to obtain a more appropriate trading symbol as soon as possible. Hereinafter the combined companies will be referred to as “Grapefruit” or the “Company.”
Grapefruit’s corporate headquarters is in Westwood, Los Angeles, California. Grapefruit holds licenses to both manufacture and distribute cannabis products which were originally issued in January 2018 and is fully compliant with all applicable laws and regulations to operate its cannabis manufacturing and distribution businesses.
The company is well-focused on sourcing only the “best of the best” raw cannabis materials to create the highest quality, most-trusted and consistent recreational and medical cannabis products for its customers. Grapefruit is committed to ensuring class-leading quality by rigorously testing the purity and potency of its raw materials throughout the manufacturing process and distribution chain.
Grapefruit owns and operates its fully licensed and compliant ethanol extraction laboratory located in the Coachillin’ Industrial Cultivation and Ancillary Canna-Business Park in Desert Hot Springs, California. The company’s extraction lab produces high quality, cannabis-derived distillate, also known as “honey oil,” from cannabis flower and “trim.” THC honey oil is one of base cannabis commodities which serves as the active ingredient in everything from infused edibles and tinctures/creams to the cartridges used in vapes and e-cigarettes. Honey oil often sells on the wholesale marketplace for thousands of dollars per liter, with pricing being dependent on quantity purchased, as well as other market factors such as the availability and cost of the underlying flowers and/or trim.
Grapefruit began its extraction operations in May 2019. Plans are in place to expand its honey oil production through the purchase of additional distillation equipment, which is expected to significantly increase the company’s production capacity by the fourth quarter of 2019. Grapefruit’s extraction lab is fully scalable and expansion will be built-out on a two-acre lot owned by Grapefruit at the Coachillin’ site adjacent to its current manufacturing and distribution operation.
Grapefruit selected the City of Desert Hot Springs for its cannabis extraction laboratory, because the city has created a friendly business environment for cannabis-based manufacturers, including incentives like the absence of taxes on cannabis oil production revenues. This affords Grapefruit a fundamental competitive market advantage over other Honey Oil producers.
The California cannabis regulatory scheme is unique in that it requires all cultivators (cannabis farms) and manufacturers (whether producing oils/distillates, infused edibles, tinctures creams or other cannabis products) to sell their products into the legal cannabis wholesale and retail markets exclusively through licensed distributors such as Grapefruit. Grapefruit initially obtained its California recreational and medicinal cannabis distribution license Jan. 4, 2018. In May 2019, Grapefruit was granted its provisional distribution license which is renewable annually, thereby cementing the regulatory foundation necessary to rapidly expand its distribution business.
Grapefruit’s distribution license affords it a twofold strategic advantage: first, to market and sell its own cannabis product lines to retailers throughout California; and second, to buy and resell bulk cannabis flowers and trim as well as all other legal cannabis products to properly licensed distributors and/or retailers throughout California.
The Coachillin’ Canna-Business Park, home to Grapefruit’s current operating facilities and adjacent two-acre parcel of land, is a 160-acre, self-contained legally mapped compound providing the Company with a fully permitted and serviced physical plant from which Grapefruit intends to establish a leading position in the booming California cannabis sector. The parcel was purchased by the Company prior to the Park’s full development, and the value of the land the Company owns has conservatively since doubled in value to over $2 million. Additional long-term benefits of the Coachillin’ compound include agricultural rates for power, which are currently $0.09 per kilowatt hour; the Park’s deep-water well that fully satisfies its need for water; and security expenses shared by all resident businesses. The Coachillin’ Park’s promoters also plan to position the Park, located only 10 miles north of rapidly growing uptown Palm Springs and less than 15 miles from the site of the Coachella and Stagecoach music festivals as a must-see canna-tourism destination.
Grapefruit’s ultimate goal is to become a vertically integrated, seed-to-sale cannabis and CBD product company serving the California market. Moreover, it plans to roll-out its product lines in other states, such as Nevada, Illinois, Oregon, Colorado and Washington. Grapefruit has plans to build a large, all-inclusive facility that will house a 50,000-square-foot-plus indoor grow canopy, a large extraction laboratory designed to extract both THC and CBD cannabinoids via non-volatile (ethanol) and volatile (butane) processes, a manufacturing space to produce Grapefruit’s vape lines and CBD products, an FDA-certified kitchen for the production of Grapefruit edibles and a distribution facility to sell all products into the entire cannabis market. The indoor grow canopy operation will be outfitted and operated to produce ultra-high-quality flowers and buds, some of which, along with the high-quality trim resulting from cleaning and maintaining the grow, will provide biomass necessary to feed the company’s extraction laboratory. Fueled by this hand cultivated biomass, Grapefruit’s lab will continuously produce pesticide and heavy metal-free world class honey oil to both serve as the active ingredient in all of Grapefruit’s branded and unbranded products and meet the projected ever-growing demand for high quality honey oil in the California market.
Grapefruit’s motto – A High You Can Trust – embodies its philosophy and ethos, reminding consumers of the company’s commitment to manufacturing, procuring and distributing only the highest quality all-natural cannabis flower, concentrates and related products that are free from pesticides, heavy metals and bacteria. Grapefruit will target its products to all recreational cannabis enthusiasts’ as continuous, consistent cannabis products. By relentlessly adhering to these policies Grapefruit intends to become the Titleist of the Cannabis industry, known for unwavering quality and consistency.
Grapefruit is managed by a team of experts possessing the experience, skill and resources required to succeed in the competitive cannabis marketplace. Founded by brothers Bradley Yourist, CEO, and Daniel Yourist, COO, Grapefruit has expanded to become a group of industry professionals sharing a passion for all things cannabis. Both the CEO & COO are attorneys licensed to practice law the State of California who possess expert cannabis licensing and regulatory expertise and experience, which will allow Grapefruit to deftly navigate the ever changing California regulatory landscape and apply for new cannabis licenses at reduced costs when necessary, rather than having to acquire licenses that are often overvalued and/or pay outside counsel to handle such matters.
Grapefruit also has its own line of cannabis-infused concentrates and edibles. Among the brands now in stores or soon to be launched are:
- Rainbow Dreams is a new lifestyle brand designed specifically for the recreational cannabis marketplace. The Rainbow Dreams brand captures the anything goes party vibe of the 1970s by offering an array of cannabis products, such as a line of vape carts with unique cannabis strains combined with all-natural flavors for a superior no-burn experience. Rainbow Dreams fills an important niche in the marketplace as a top shelf quality product line that is competitively priced.

Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD)
Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD) was featured today in the 420 with CNW by CannabisNewsWire. This increase in the price of marijuana flower comes as the supply is declining. The cost of cannabis flower in Michigan has risen by about 50 percent from the time medical marijuana became available in the state nearly ten months ago. In August, the wholesale price of an ounce reached $249, the highest it has ever been from the time the regulated market was opened. This increase in the price of marijuana flower comes as the supply is declining. This decline started in April and the numbers have been dropping to the lowest point in August.
Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD), one of the largest publicly traded hydroponics supply companies moving into the industrial hemp space, is a product and brand marketing company investing in products and brands with disruptive potential. Sugarmade’s brands include: ZenHydro.com; CarryOutSupplies.com; and BudLife. Headquartered in Monrovia, California, a city within Los Angeles county, Sugarmade has various business operations in diverse marketplaces including packaging and paper goods for various industries, agricultural supplies.
Sugarmade has expanded into the European hydroponics supply market with a growing base of orders taken through Amazon UK. Over the past few financial quarters, Sugarmade has seen revenue growth patterns expand geographically. As recently as mid-2017, the majority of hydroponic-related revenue growth was seen from California and other West Coast marketplaces, however growth is becoming more geographically dispersed among U.S. states where legalization has eased restriction. This movement into the United Kingdom further expands the base of geographic growth areas for Sugarmade.
Sugarmade recently launched a new corporate initiative in the booming industrial hemp and CBD, committing up to $1 million in capital over the next 12 months to invest in Hempistry, Inc., a privately held Nevada corporation. Hempistry has begun planting an ultra-high cannabidiol (CBD) industrial hemp strain on a land option it holds on 23,000 acres of prime Kentucky farmland. The strain of industrial hemp being grown by Hempistry is ultra-rich in CBD but contains less than 0.3 percent of THC, the psychoactive ingredient found in cannabis. The U.S. hemp industry is expected to produce well over $1 billion in revenues in 2018, with a compound annual growth rate of 14 percent through 2022, according to the Hemp Business Journal.
Demand for industrial hemp and products derived from hemp is soaring, with no let-up in sight, which the company sees as a “tremendous opportunity to become a supplier to this fast-growing sector,” said Chairman and CEO Jimmy Chan, who is also an advisor and minority shareholder of Hempistry.
Sugarmade’s investment into the market for high-CBD hemp is expected to be highly accretive for common shareholders in two ways. First, Sugarmade’s investment will be in the form of common shares in Hempistry allowing Sugarmade common shareholders to possibly benefit from any future initial public offering of Hempistry. Second, Sugarmade is expected to sign a supply agreement with Hempistry for cultivation supplies, which would be additive to corporate revenues.
Sugarmade has also completed a master market agreement with industry leader BizRight Hydroponics, Inc., a leading marketer and manufacturer of cannabis and hydroponic growth supplies, which offers a range of hydroponics-related products including: HPS grow lights, electronic ballasts, HPS bulbs, nutrient mixes, environmental control products, pH measurement and calibration solutions and storage products. BizRight operates the ZenHydro.com website and other e-commerce properties and sells various products to distributors and retailers. BizRight is expected to produce in excess of $30 million in revenues during 2017, with substantial growth expected for 2018.
Sugarmade division CarryOutSupplies.com, the leader in paper and plastic take-out supplies, serves nationwide customers by offering a wide array of high quality products that are cost-efficient, custom-made and delivered on time. This business unit currently serves 2,000 quick service restaurants, garnering from 30-40 percent of the market share. Sugarmade plans to expand operations via the addition of market share and the introduction of new product offerings.
CEO Jimmy Chan is an experienced business executive instrumental in growing multiple business operations with a strong expertise in international trade and banking, and international manufacturing and importation. He is also the founder of CarryOutSupplies.com, a company that revolutionized the custom-printed paper supplies subsector of the quick service restaurant industry, which merged with Sugarmade in 2014.
Arman Tabatabaei serves as operations consultant, providing high-level, day-to-day strategic guidance and tactical operational supervision for all aspects of the corporation’s business. He is an expert at data collection and analysis relative to resource management, risk forecasting and profit and loss management.

VIVO Cannabis Inc. (TSX.V: VIVO) (OTC: VVCIF)
VIVO Cannabis Inc. (TSX.V: VIVO) (OTC: VVCIF) is a globally licensed, cost efficient producer of premium quality, organic, standardized medicinal cannabis. One of the earliest licensed medical marijuana producers under Canada’s federally-controlled Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR), VIVO has five years of operating experience in the burgeoning medical marijuana space through its flagship operation, ABcann Medicinals, Inc. The company recently received its Health Canada license to produce medical cannabis oils and is working toward production of saleable, extracted, finished products that will lead to a final inspection allowing sales of its oils.
“Receipt of the license to produce cannabis oils is a major milestone in our pursuit to provide our medical cannabis patients with additional product formats that can be precisely dosed. The expansion and innovation of our product lines are a top priority for the Company as we continue to serve the needs of our customers, and we anticipate strong demand for our cannabis oil products,” VIVO CEO Barry Fishman said.
VIVO owns and operates a fully functioning 14,500 square foot facility in Napanee, Ontario, which is being doubled in size to produce 1,400 kg of cannabis per year. The company’s expansion plans include adding a seasonal greenhouse and a hybrid, multipurpose facility, capable of producing 31,000 kg of cannabis per year between the two facilities, to be constructed on 65 acres it already owns near the Napanee facility. This additional location is properly zoned with existing infrastructure in place for an eventual 1.2 million square feet of production space.
VIVO has built a reputation over the years for its best-in-class standardized approach to growing cannabis that includes the absence of pesticides and a computer monitored growing technique that provides a consistent, pharmaceutical-grade with high yields. The company’s custom, scalable growing chambers with proprietary lighting can be replicated anywhere in the world, leading to lower production costs. This technique has helped it record a customer retention rate of 94.7 percent alongside 30 percent month-over-month customer growth. When combined with VIVO’s current yield rate, which it has measured at roughly 100 percent greater than the industry average, the company has constructed a strong foundation upon which to build a sizable presence in the global cannabis industry.
This global growth potential is illustrated by VIVO’s partnership with Israel’s Syqe Medical, producer of the world’s first selective-dose pharmaceutical grade medicinal plant inhaler. After visiting VIVO’s production facility, Perry Davidson, founder of Syqe Medical, noted that the company’s production technologies put it “in a class with the best in the world” in its ability to produce standardized pharmaceutical grade cannabis.
VIVO’s recent acquisition of Harvest Medicine Inc. represents further progress toward the company’s goal of becoming a vertically integrated medical cannabis company. Harvest Medicine is one of the fastest growing medical cannabis clinics in Canada – adding over 1,200 new patients monthly from a single location – with an aggressive expansion plan and a patient-focused approach that perfectly aligns with VIVO’s philosophy of quality and innovation.
VIVO’s seasoned management team, board of directors and advisory board features well over a century of combined industry experience. Fishman, who has over 20 years of experience as a business leader, previously served as CEO of both Teva Canada and Taro Canada, as vice president of marketing at Eli Lilly Canada, and as past chair of the Canadian Generic Manufacturers Association. He most recently served as CEO of international specialty pharmaceutical company Merus Labs.
Notably, VIVO also has access to the ‘Father of Cannabis Research’, Raphael Mechoulam, PhD, through its board of advisors. An organic chemist and professor of medicinal chemistry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Mechoulam was the first scientist to isolate both cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). He has received more than 25 prestigious academic awards, including the Rothschild Prize in Chemical Sciences and Physical Sciences in 2012.
With more than 65 acres of growth capacity, a healthy cash balance to fund upcoming construction efforts, steady sales growth, industry-leading yield rates and an established operations team in place, VIVO is well positioned to compete in the rapidly expanding Canadian cannabis industry and beyond.
VIVO Cannabis Inc. (VVCIF), closed Monday's trading session at $0.3021, off by 2.5484%, on 87,927 volume with 51 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 179,853 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.301699995/$1.35000002.
