Dividend Investor, Morningstar, Stockhouse, Streetwise Reports, OTC Markets Group, InvestorsHub, Resource World, and FeedBlitz reported on CanAlaska Uranium Ltd. (CVVUF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
CanAlaska Uranium Ltd. is an exploration stage enterprise with its corporate headquarters in Vancouver, British Columbia. The Company concentrates on two important projects in the Athabasca Basin in the Province of Saskatchewan. A project generator, CanAlaska Uranium lists on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB.
The Company holds interests in approximately 102,870 hectares (254,000 acres), one of the largest land positions in Canada's Athabasca Basin region. Its strategic holdings have attracted major international mining companies. At present, CanAlaska is working with Cameco and Denison at two of CanAlaska’s properties in the Eastern Athabasca Basin.
CanAlaska Uranium’s projects include Cree East, West McArthur, NW Manitoba, and base metals and gold projects and other uranium projects and its diamond projects. The Cree East project is a high-priority property positioned in the southeastern portion of the Athabasca Basin.
The West McArthur project is adjoining the world’s richest uranium mine -Cameco's McArthur River. The goal at West McArthur is a large unconformity uranium deposit. In addition, $20 million of work successfully identified seven target areas.
The Company’s NW Manitoba project lies in northwest Manitoba just east of the border of northeast Saskatchewan. It is 70 kilometers north of Reindeer Lake.
CanAlaska Uranium has new targets developed at the Thompson Nickel Belt Properties. In Manitoba, it has continued Project Generation activities, with licence acquisitions in the Thompson Nickel Belt. Compilation work has continued. More targets have been developed on the Strong and Hunter properties.
Furthermore, the Company acquired four new claims groups in the western Athabasca Basin for diamond exploration. Three of these are in the area just north of current claims in the Patterson Lake area.
Last month, CanAlaska Uranium reported that it entered into Letters of Intent (LOIs) with Canada Metals Ltd. for an Option-Purchase of the Manibridge nickel project, and an Option to earn 70 percent of the Strong nickel project. Canada Metals is presently planning to undertake an IPO (Initial Public Offering) to list on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX). Both projects will receive significant drill programs following the proposed financing of Canada Metals pursuant to its ASX listing. Canada Metals is an Australian-incorporated public unlisted company headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, and supported by Peak Asset Management investment group.
President Peter Dasler said, "This is a great step forward for CanAlaska, as we get a timely funding of exploration on two of our three nickel projects. Historical exploration work has been compiled on each property and there are a number of compelling nickel targets. We get to participate alongside a good technical group with strong funding sources."

NaturalShrimp, Inc. (SHMP)
OTC Dynamics, ThePennyPicks, SmallCapVoice, Born2Invest, Morningstar, Market Screener, Pennystockmania, PennyPickGains, WallstreetSurfers, Investors Hangout, The Street, and TradingView reported on NaturalShrimp, Inc. (SHMP), and we also report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
OTCQB-listed, NaturalShrimp, Inc. is a global leader in aquaculture technology. The Company has developed and tested the first commercially-viable system for growing shrimp indoors. The system utilizes a proprietary technology to reliably produce healthy, naturally-grown shrimp weekly without the use of antibiotics or toxic chemicals. NaturalShrimp has developed a technology to produce fresh, gourmet-grade shrimp dependably and economically in an indoor, re-circulating, saltwater facility.
NaturalShrimp’s corporate office is in Dallas, Texas. Its production facility is outside of San Antonio, Texas. NaturalShrimp, Inc. owns 100 percent of NaturalShrimp Corporation, formed to operate in the U.S. and Canada, and 100 percent of NaturalShrimp Global, Inc., established to form International Joint Venture (JV) Partnerships.
NaturalShrimp operates a closed-system saltwater aquaculture facility. The facility produces high-grade Pacific White shrimp. It accomplishes this without using the antibiotics and chemical additives today’s shrimp farms require. The technology causes ammonia (NH3) to break down into risk-free nitrogen and hydrogen gas. Therefore, this eliminates one of the historically most demanding problems in shrimp aquaculture.
NaturalShrimp’s production facilities will be the aquaculture industry’s first truly eco-friendly, sustainable way of cultivating shrimp in high density environments.
The Company’s eco-friendly, bio-secure design does not depend on ocean water. It recreates the natural ocean environment allowing for high-density production that can undergo replication anywhere in the world.
The NaturalShrimp Automated Monitoring and Control system employs individual tank monitors to automatically control the feeding, the oxygenation, and the temperature of each of the facility tanks independently. Furthermore, a facility computer, running custom software, communicates with each of the controllers and performs more data acquisition functions that can report back to a supervisory computer from anywhere worldwide.
NaturalShrimp has installed an enhanced version of its patent pending, vibrio suppression technology system at the La Coste, Texas production facility. Recently, NaturalShrimp announced that its vibrio suppression technology system received extensive coverage from multiple Texas-based newspapers.
The design of the Company's vibrio suppression technology is to create higher sustainable shrimp population densities, consistent production, improved growth, higher survival rates, and top-quality food conversion in an all-natural ocean-type environment. Mr. Gerald Easterling, President, and one of NaturalShrimp's three Co-Founders, predicted, "What you see here will revolutionize indoor aquatic species and not just shrimp."
The original article stated, "That could have implications for a worldwide aquaculture industry estimated at more than $163 billion." The original article was written by Lynn Brezosky for the San Antonio Express-News. It was republished by permission in the Dallas, Ft. Worth and Waco newspapers.
NaturalShrimp, Inc. (SHMP), closed Monday's trading session at $0.0075, down 4.58%, on 1,259,965 volume with 32 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 1,120,236 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0065/$1.00.
SolarWindow Technologies, Inc. (WNDW)
Winston Small Cap, Zacks, Spotlight Growth, Stock Oodles, Stock Gumshoe, Barchart, The Street, InvestorsHub, Capital Cube, AllPennyStocks, TopPennyStockMovers, Simply Wall St, SmallCapVoice, and Stockopedia reported earlier on SolarWindow Technologies, Inc. (WNDW), and we also report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
SolarWindow Technologies, Inc. is a developer of next generation, transparent, electricity-generating SolarWindow™ coatings. The Company is a developer of electricity-generating windows for tall towers and skyscrapers. SolarWindow™ uses organic materials dissolved into liquid, best for low-cost high-output manufacturing. SolarWindow Technologies is based in Columbia, Maryland.
The Company’s mission is to create SolarWindow™ products that produce considerable amounts of clean electricity, financially reward its customers, and benefit the environment. Upon application to glass or plastics, the coatings convert passive windows and other materials into electricity generators under natural, artificial, low, shaded, and reflected light conditions.
SolarWindow™ systems can undergo installation on the readily-available sizeable window glass surfaces on tall towers and skyscrapers. SolarWindow™ can be applied to the sides of tall towers, producing electricity using natural, shaded, and artificial light. The coatings generate electricity on see-through glass and flexible plastics with colored tints popular to skyscraper glass.
SolarWindow™ technology has been independently validated to generate 50-times the power of a conventional rooftop solar system. Additionally, it realizes a one-year payback when modeled on a 50-story building. SolarWindow™ products are undergoing development to be installed on all four sides of a skyscraper. This turns the whole building into a power generator.
SolarWindow Technologies latest products will be engineered as transparent, tinted, flexible veneers that installers can apply directly over top of existing windows on tall towers and skyscrapers. This expanded product line extends the Company’s market reach beyond new and replacement installations, to include windows now installed on the estimated five million commercial buildings built in the United States alone.
The Company entered Phase III of its Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). The main development objective of the Agreement is the commercialization of SolarWindow™ products. Moreover, SolarWindow™ is expanding product development to include applying its electricity-generating coatings onto flexible glass – as thin as a business card (only 0.1-millimeter-thick), which is flexible enough to be bent without breaking or cracking.
In June 2018, SolarWindow Technologies announced its latest commercial alliance with nTact, an international leader in coating process knowledge and equipment manufacturing, necessary for large-scale production of transparent electricity-generating windows. To enable commercial production, SolarWindow first partnered with Triview Glass Industries, a glass fabrication plant, where its coatings can be applied to windows.
SolarWindow then entered into a collaboration with Raynergy Tek to ensure a steady supply of raw materials used in its coatings. Raynergy Tek is a chemicals developer.
The alliance with nTact provides specialty-coatings machinery required for use in a high-volume SolarWindow production line at the plant. SolarWindow Technologies scientists and engineers will work with nTact to design, prototype, test, and manufacture machinery and equipment required for coating glass and flexible materials with the Company’s transparent electricity-generating coatings that will be used to create a manufacturing line, with the aim of implementing large-scale production of SolarWindow™ electricity-generating glass and flexible products.
SolarWindow Technologies, Inc. (WNDW), closed Monday's trading session at $1.80, up 0.56%, on 16,841 volume with 68 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 46,296 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $1.50/$10.50.

Propanc Biopharma, Inc. is a clinical stage Biopharmaceutical Company listed on the OTCQB. It focuses on the development of new and proprietary treatments for cancer patients suffering from solid tumors such as pancreatic, ovarian, and colorectal cancers. The Company has developed a formulation of anti-cancer compounds that exert numerous effects designed to control or prevent tumors from recurring and spreading throughout the body. Propanc Biopharma has its head office in Australia.
The Company is developing a long-term therapy founded on a pancreatic proenzyme formulation to prevent tumour recurrence and metastasis. Its lead product is PRP. This is a novel, patented, formulation consisting of two proenzymes mixed in a synergetic ratio. PRP is a solution for once daily intravenous administration of a combination of two pancreatic proenzymes, trypsinogen and chymotrypsinogen, for the treatment of pancreatic cancer.
Propanc Biopharma has received Orphan Drug Designation (ODD) from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the use of PRP. The approved indication is one of the most lethal malignancies with a median survival of 6 months and a 5-year survival rate of less than 5 percent.
Propanc (after extensive laboratory research and a limited amount of human testing) has evidence that PRP lessen cancer cell growth through promotion of cell differentiation; enhances cell adhesion, and may suppress metastasis progression; and has no serious side effects and improves patient survival.
Development progress for PRP includes successful completion of a GLP-compliant, 28-day repeat-dose toxicity study with no toxicological findings after administration. This indicates a broad safety margin. It provides sufficient data to support a safe starting dose for First-In-Human studies.
Additionally, a manufacturing process capable of purifying and stabilizing two active drug substances of the PRP formulation, trypsinogen and chymotrypsinogen were successfully developed. Furthermore, the FDA granted Orphan Drug Designation status to PRP for the treatment of pancreatic cancer.
This past March, Propanc Biopharma announced the successful reproduction run of the manufacturing process for its two drug substances trypsinogen and chymotrypsinogen. The successful reproduction run demonstrates scalability of the Company's proprietary manufacturing process to enable routine production of the two active substances for Propanc’s lead product candidate, PRP.

The Eagle Mountain Gold Project is roughly 200 km southwest of Guyana’s capital, Georgetown. It is 45 km from the historic Omai Gold Mine. At Eagle Mountain, Goldsource Mines built in 2015, and operated in 2016, a 1,000 t/d gravity pilot processing plant.

Phivida Holdings Inc. (CSE: VIDA) (OTC: PHVAF)
Traders News Source, a leading independent equity research, and corporate access firm focused on small and mid-cap public companies is issuing a comprehensive report on Phivida Holdings Inc. (OTCQX: PHVAF). The company purchases packages and sells holistic hemp infused products. The company is also a supplier of hemp oil extracts, targeting manufacturers of consumer-packaged products, cosmetics pharmaceuticals as well as pet supplements. A review of Phivida's products, sales and recent corporate highlights in this full report READ MORE
Headquartered in Vancouver, Canada, with operations offices in southern California, Phivida Holdings Inc. (CSE: VIDA) (OTC: PHVAF) is a premium food and beverage company that develops CBD-infused functional foods, beverages and supplements poised for global distribution. All products in the Phivida label are infused with organic, hemp-derived cannabinoids into a variety of premium foods, beverages and clinical products for everyday health. Phivida is guided by a team of Fortune 500-caliber executives focused on a new strategic portfolio of products and brands, comprehensive consumer research, new product and brand development, improved visual identity and packaging design, and a strong distribution strategy.
The company’s motto – “Celebrating Health and Wellness, in Harmony™” – underscores Phivida’s mission to lead the alternative health care sector as the benchmark standard in premium CBD-infused functional beverages and tinctures. To execute this goal, Phivida is taking advantage of positive legislative developments in the United States and has defined an elevated national route-to-market strategy across the U.S. where small regional distributors will be now be replaced with large national distributors.
Phivida’s management team includes president and CEO Jim Bailey, former president of Red Bull Canada and global chief marketing officer for Merrell Outdoors; Chief Marketing Officer Michael Cornwell, former chief marketing officer for Samsung New Zealand and the former director of marketing for Red Bull Canada; and Doug Campbell, former director of sales for Red Bull North America, who as Phivida’s chief commercial officer is tasked with driving new sales revenue growth.
Publicly traded on the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE.VIDA) and recently graduated to the OTCQX Best Market in the USA (OTCQX.PHVAF), the company’s strong balance sheet carries CAD$15.7 million with no debt or loans with less than 60 million shares outstanding and the company is now well-capitalized to fun major mainstream distribution with a solid structure poised for long-term growth.
Using encapsulation technology, Phivida uses full spectrum CBD-hemp oil (rich in naturally occurring phytocannabinoids) converted into a water-soluble delivery format, which enhances delivery and absorption of the cannabinoids into the human body – up to an estimated tenfold.
Encapsulated CBD is infused into functional beverages, food and supplements containing a proprietary blend of phytonutraceuticals studied to target a range of health and wellness conditions. Phivida tests every product for microbials, heavy metals, pesticides, residual solvents, terpenes, and potency to guarantee less than 0.3 percent THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, the chemical compound in cannabis responsible for a euphoric high) is present.
Federally legal under the 2014 Farm Bill, CBD from Hemp Oil is a rapid growth market across the USA. When derived from marijuana, CBD remains a schedule one controlled substances, giving hemp derived CBD oil infused products a competitive advantage on regulations. On June 28, 2018, the U.S. Senate passed the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (i.e. the “Farm Bill), lifting the USA Industrial Hemp laws to an agricultural commodity status and effectively removed hemp from the controlled substance list.
Earlier this year, another milestone court ruling also provided significant regulatory support for the US CBD-Hemp sector. In February 2018, the Supreme Court preceded over the HIA (Hemp Industry Association) vs. DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) in a class-action suit concerning the issue of CBD extracted from hemp, and the legality of industrial hemp. In the final ruling the Supreme Court unequivocally determined that – when produced domestically under the Farm Bill – hemp (and its derivatives) are not a controlled substance.
The Supreme Court ruling also found the Farm Bill (as it relates to hemp) “pre-empts” the Controlled Substances Act. Congress has since exempted Farm Bill hemp from the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) giving the Farm Bill primary jurisdiction over the governance of the CBD-Hemp Oil industry in the USA.
The DEA further conceded it does not “seek to control cannabinoids,” and that only marijuana derived cannabinoids are governed under the Controlled Substances Act. In May of 2018, the DEA issued a formal directive to all federal agencies (e.g. US Customs and Border Patrol) stating that cannabinoids are not controlled substances unless derived from marijuana, and that the “mere presence of cannabinoids” in any product or derivative does not render it a controlled substance. The Supreme Court ruling also resulted in the mediation of a settlement in what is now the third successful HIA vs. DEA suit in over a decade.
In Canada, the Senate approval of Bill C-45 legalized the production, distribution and use of recreation cannabis – with edibles to be added in 2019. The bill will officially become law as of October 17, 2018, creating a legal framework for the production, distribution, sale and possession of cannabis across Canada including cannabinoid-infused beverages.

Zenergy Brands, Inc. (ZNGY)
Next-generation energy and technology company Zenergy Brands (OTC: ZNGY) is focused on building value for its shareholders, with an innovative initiative to go virtual. A recent article discussing this reads, “Also, of course, Zenergy aims to boost its own value for investors. In July, the company announced a seven-year agreement with BitPlus, Ltd. to gain a competitive advantage in the bitcoin mining industry (http://nnw.fm/u3PdO), and, on October 1 the company announced the rebranding of a Texas retail electric provider (‘REP’) that it acquired earlier this year to provide ‘virtual utility’ services.” To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/6qPCf.
Zenergy Brands, Inc. (ZNGY) is the nation’s leading next-generation energy and technology company operating in the emerging smart energy, conservation, and utility industries. Headquartered in Texas, Zenergy provides an entire suite of conservation-based products and services that enable clients to achieve sustainability goals, reduce carbon emissions and improve their bottom line. The company’s cutting-edge Zero Cost Program™ reduces utility expenses by 20 percent to 60 percent by offering energy conservation, smart controls, and efficiency-based products and services to residential, commercial, industrial and municipal end-use customers.
The Zero Cost Program™ is a financing mechanism that allows customers to reduce water, natural gas and electricity expenses by implementing proven conservation technologies at no out-of-pocket cost. The Zero Cost Program™ enriches businesses by immediately reducing energy consumption through the use of smart controls, building automation, LED lighting solutions, refrigeration optimization, efficient water systems, EC motor controls, demand-side management and load factor correction.
A unique Managed Energy Services Agreement (“MESA”) allows a portion of these utility savings to be retained by Zenergy’s partner financing the upgraded, retrofit equipment and installation costs until a specified repayment period ends. After that, clients reap all the financial rewards of the technologies implemented, which Zenergy estimates should range between 25 percent and 45 percent of total utility costs.
Residential customers seeking cost-effective energy savings can also choose from a suite of “Smart Home” products including home automation, security monitoring, and energy conservation services that can be controlled 24/7 from the comfort and convenience of their smartphones or internet-connected smart devices. Zenergy’s residential program offers partnership opportunities for homebuilders and residential, multi-family real estate developers to provide smart home technologies to high-end customers.
Zenergy Brands’ acquisition of Enertrade Electric LLC, a fully operating, licensed Texas-based Retail Electric Provider (REP), further increases the company’s value proposition. Zenergy CEO Alex Rodriguez said this new subsidiary adds an essential complementary service to the company’s suite of smart energy products and services.
“Since our founding, our vision has been to converge smart controls (home and building automation) with energy conservation and retail energy to deliver the comprehensive smart energy service to customers,” Rodriguez said.
On a global scale, residential and commercial buildings account for nearly 45 percent of the world’s total energy consumption. Improving the energy efficiency of these homes and buildings is often a more affordable way to reduce harmful gas emissions while minimizing the need for new energy production. According to Navigant Research, global revenue for energy-efficient commercial building retrofits alone is expected to grow from $71.4 billion in 2016 to $100.8 billion in 2025. At the same time, the energy-efficient devices market is expected to reach a market size of $908 billion by 2022. Increasing demands for reduction in energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions along with concerns over climate change are contributing factors driving the market’s overall growth.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG)
Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (OTC: REFG), known for its state-of-the-art Green FinCEN-compliant processing system, is working from the ground up to serve the cannabis industry. The company has expanded its services to participate within the hemp and cannabis industries at strategic levels. This includes providing a proprietary, organic soil nutrient and mobile CBD extraction labs to hemp farms owned and operated by the company, as well as continuing to strengthen the Green platform, providing dispensaries with cash-free options. By managing supply and demand from seed to sale, REFG is gaining a competitive edge in the industry.
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.

Lithium Chile Inc. (TSX.V: LITH) (OTC: LTMCF)
Lithium Chile (TSX.V: LITH) (OTCQB: LTMCF) is positioned to exploit huge opportunities for lithium producers as global demand for electric vehicles is forecasted to grow at annual rate of 15.6 percent over next five years. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/R69Io.
Lithium Chile Inc. (TSX.V: LITH) (OTC: LTMCF), headquartered in Canada, is advancing one of the largest lithium-rich exploration portfolios in Chile consisting of more than 148,000 hectares covering sections of 13 salars or mineral salt flats and one laguna complex. The company’s wholly owned premier properties include 66 square kilometers on the Salar de Atacama, Chile’s largest mineral salt flat which hosts the world’s highest concentration of lithium brine production and is currently the source of about 35 percent of the world’s lithium production. Lithium Chile also owns a significant copper/gold/silver property portfolio consisting of 28,184 hectares over six different properties.
Lithium Chile’s portfolio in the heart of Chile’s lithium-rich salars includes Salar de Coipasa, Salar de Helados, Salar de Atacama, Salar de Turi Salar de Ollague and Salar de Talar. Surface and near surface salt and brine sampling programs on all properties has been completed. To date, samples of high-grade, near-surface lithium brines at each of these projects are showing excellent chemistry of lithium to potassium and lithium to magnesium ratios. Good chemistry is important as it reduces your overall cost of production. Recent geophysical surveys including T.E.M have been completed on 5 of 6 priority targets and data collected to date has been extremely encouraging.
Lithium Chile has identified multiple high-priority brine target areas at its Atacama and Ollague lithium project areas. These areas display the same geophysical characteristics as the lithium-rich aquifers at Salar de Atacama, home to the world’s largest and highest-grade lithium brine producers. Spanning an area of 1,200 square miles, Salar de Atacama is the world’s third largest salt flat behind Salinas Grandes in Argentina and El Salar de Uyuni in neighboring Bolivia. Exploration drilling and resource definition drilling for these target areas are planned for 2018.
“We are delighted with the discovery of such impressive drill target areas at Atacama and Ollague. The results also follow the recent discovery of a 60km2 target area at another of our top Chilean projects – Helados – where we hope to drill in the second quarter of 2018,” stated President and CEO Steve Cochrane. “We have an aggressive multi-project drill program planned for this year, which includes all three of these exciting projects and we look forward to sharing drill results as they come through.”
Global demand for lithium-ion batteries is expected to surpass US$53 billion by 2024 as governments around the world aggressively seek to ban gas-powered vehicles and major automakers invest billions in new technology and electric vehicles powered by lithium-ion batteries. Chile’s mining-friendly jurisdiction offers Lithium Chile a clear, streamlined permitting process that significantly lowers the cost of lithium production to around $1,800/ton as compared to Australia’s $5,000/ton.
Lithium Chile is led by an experienced team with strong Chilean connections. Cochrane’s 36 years of investment industry experience have primarily been focused on the mining sector. During this time, he raised more than US$500 million for a variety of small cap public companies in various businesses and industry sectors including mining.
Terry Walker, P.Geol., vice president of exploration and chief geologist, is a highly experienced geologist. He has spent over 25 years in Chile’s mining industry and is well connected throughout the sector. Walker is co-founder of GeoServicios Piedra Dorada, an exploration and development services company focused on Latin America. He is a Qualified Person for the North American and Australian stock exchanges.
Lithium Chile is well funded and driven by a top-tier team with more than 100 years of combined experience in financing, mining exploration and development in the natural resources sector.

Earth Science Tech, Inc. (ETST)
Earth Science Tech, Inc. (OTCQB: ETST), a biotech company focused on the cannabinoid nutraceutical and pharmaceutical fields, medical devices and research and development, recently announced a detailed marketing strategy for Hygee, issued an update on CBD patents and reacted to the DEA’s shifted stance toward CBD.
Earth Science Tech, Inc. (ETST) is an innovative biotechnology company operating in the fields of hemp cannabinoid (CBD), nutraceutical, pharmaceutical and medical device research and development. Earth Science Tech offers the highest purity and quality, full-spectrum, high-grade hemp CBD (cannabidiol) oil on the market. Made using the supercritical CO2 liquid extraction process, the company’s CBD oil is 100 percent natural and organic. Earth Science Tech has partnered with the University of Central Oklahoma and DV Biologics Laboratory to conduct research and development projects that scientifically support and advance the healthcare benefits of its high-grade hemp CBD oil.
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.
- Cannabis Therapeutics, Inc. (“CTI”), which is poised to take a leadership role in the development of new, leading-edge, cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products. CTI is invested in research and development to explore and harness the medicinal power of cannabidiol. The company holds a provisional application patent for a CBD product that is focused on developing treatments for breast and ovarian cancers.
- KannaBidioiD (“KBD”) provides a wide variety of products geared toward the recreational space of cannabis. KBD’s unique Kanna and CBD formulation is sold and distributed in CBD-infused edibles and vapes/e-liquids products. Kanna and CBD synergistically enhance one another, providing optimal relaxation, an uplifting sensation, enhanced focus and the added benefit of assisting with nicotine reduction therapy.
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.
The management team at Earth Science Tech brings decades of invaluable experience to the nutraceutical, dietary supplement field as well as the life sciences sectors. Nickolas S. Tabraue, who serves as the president, director and chief operating officer, is an industry veteran with extensive knowledge of supplements, retail management, customer service and sales expertise. He is joined by CEO and CSO Dr. Michel Aubé, a microbiologist whose scientific research in sexually transmitted infections, cancer and stem cell biology has been widely published in several prestigious medical journals. Sergio Castillo, chief marketing officer, and Gabriel Aviles, chief sales officer, bring a wealth of marketing and sales experience to Earth Science Tech, which is complemented by Issa El-Cheikh, Ph.D., and his 25 years in the international finance, accounting, planning and execution of large scale transactions in the public and private sectors.
Earth Science Tech’s products include CBD, a natural constituent of hemp oil derived from hemp stalk and seed. EST offers CBD in the form of vitamins, minerals, herbs, botanicals, personal care products, homeopathies, functional foods and other products delivered in such forms as capsules, tablets, soft gels, chewables, liquids, creams, sprays, powders and whole herbs. Earth Science products can be found at retail stores throughout the United States and are available for purchase through the internet.

Hunter Oil Corp. (TSX.V: HOC) (OTC: HOILF)
Hunter Oil Corp. (TSX.V: HOC) (OTC: HOILF), (“Hunter Oil” or the “Company”) is an oil and gas exploration, development and production company. The Company’s corporate headquarters are located in Vancouver, British Columbia, and its operational headquarters are in Houston, Texas. Along with its subsidiaries, Hunter Oil is engaged in acquisition, development, operation, and exploitation of crude oil and natural gas properties in the Permian Basin in eastern New Mexico. The Company owns and operates two large, proven oil fields – the Chaveroo and Milnesand San Andres fields – with a total acreage position of over 23,000 acres that are essentially contiguous. Hunter Oil’s operations involve re-accessing the existing reservoirs and developing the resource by utilizing contemporary completion techniques and proven unconventional recovery technologies.
First developed in the 1950s and 1960s using vertical well production technology, the Chaveroo and Milnesand fields produced 40 million barrels or only a fraction of the original oil in place, leaving behind significant recoverable reserves. Hunter Oil plans to unlock the value in these resource-rich fields by leveraging existing infrastructure, lowering operating costs and increasing efficiencies of its operations. By exploiting the pre-existing infrastructure at these proven, legacy assets, Hunter Oil is poised to capitalize on a significantly reduced exploration and finding cost threshold that enables profitability. Net present value of its reserves in these fields, discounted at 10 percent, is estimated at US$829.7 million as disclosed in the company’s year-end 2017 reserve report(1).
The Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Ridgeway Arizona Oil Corp., recently received drilling permits for five wells in its Chaveroo oil field. Hunter Oil intends to develop the Chaveroo reserves by drilling up to 84 horizontal wells. These permits represent the first group of wells to be drilled in the planned program and mark a significant milestone. During the past three years, the Company has readied the two oil fields for their next phase of exploitation via infill horizontal redevelopment.
The planned wells will target the San Andres formation at approximately 4,500’ TVD (true vertical depth) and will be one-mile-long horizontal wells. The Chaveroo oil field has reserves targeted for exploitation of 22 MMBOE (million barrels of oil equivalent) consisting of Proved Undeveloped reserves of 8.4 MMBOE, Probable reserves of 3.4 MMBOE, and Possible reserves of 10.2 MMBOE, as disclosed in the Company’s year-end 2017 reserve report(1).
Hunter Oil’s management team has decades of experience in oil production, both internationally and domestically, allowing for a greater understanding of operating assets on both state and federally regulated lands. Al H. Denson, P.E., recently appointed as Chief Executive Officer of Hunter Oil Corp., is an active member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers with more than 40 years of exploration and production experience. He began his career in 1976 with Amoco Corporation (now BP), where he served in various engineering, operational and management roles, both in the U.S. and internationally. Mr. Denson, who served as a director and member of the Company’s Operating Committee from 2014 to 2017, earned both a Bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree in Petroleum Engineering from Mississippi State University and is a Registered Professional Engineer in the State of Louisiana.
As a believer in corporate responsibility, Hunter Oil is committed to safe and responsible exploration and development practices that reflect a thoughtful awareness of the impact its operations have on the environment and community. Hunter Oil’s mission is to bring environmental, social and economic value to all of its stakeholders.

WhereverTV Broadcasting Corp. (TVTV)
WhereverTV Broadcasting Corp. (TVTV) is a next-generation OTT (Over-the-top) television subscription service that manages live-stream broadcast programming rights across multiple devices, geographies and languages, providing viewers with personalized service that is truly “wherever” they may be watching TV.
WhereverTV’s patented Interactive Program Guide (IPG) technology currently handles over 125 live channels that are broadcasted securely over the Internet to any Internet-enabled device anywhere in the world. Many of the company’s channels are the same as those broadcasted by traditional cable and satellite companies. For example, the World News Now package includes One America News, RT News (Russia Today), Bloomberg TV, CBN News and EuroNews Live — the latter provides pan-European coverage in 350 million households in 155 countries. Other channel packages include Choice TV (a wide variety of popular options for the family), Spanish TV, Faith TV and Morocco TV, providing current genre-specific subscriptions for news, faith, drama, sports, movie, reality and children’s programming.
WhereverTV’s free app works with iOS and Android devices to cover the spectrum of mobile consumer needs, as well as with personal desktop or laptop computers through its over the top (OTT) platform. The platform delivers channels, shows and events to SmartTVs and digital media receivers that include Google Chromecast, AppleTV, Amazon Fire TV, iPhone, iPad, Android Smartphone and TabletPCs, with DVR recording functionality slated for future development.
The company, based in Fort Myers, Florida, was developed in 2007 as a solution to its founder’s frustration with the complexities of trying to stream English speaking content while abroad. As the live-streaming market has developed over the decade since then, WhereverTV has gained recognition as a pioneer in next-generation content delivery systems.
WhereverTV’s strategy is to increase revenue-generating subscriptions worldwide through the acquisition of content that is desirable to consumers and deliverable anywhere a device can connect to the Internet. Prepaid accounts will be accessed through the cloud, and the IPG technology will allow users to make their viewing choices. The company has developed two separate divisions, one for worldwide distribution and one for Latin American distribution.
In 2017, the company acquired Digital Rodeo, LLC, a Tennessee limited liability company that delivers a rich mixture of music and videos from independent country artists, current arrests and legacy artists, as well as similar Florida-based companies Digital RodeoTV, LLC (Name changed to WhereverTV Country in 2018), Digital CrossTV, Inc., Digital PopTV, Inc., and Digital RockTV, Inc.
“WhereverTV is transitioning from a development to operational company and in doing so we have refined our 2018 business model,” CEO Edward D. Ciofani stated. “Our business model calls for content acquisition from around the world, exclusive content development, Major Marketing Alliances, similar to the announced Google Chromecast for Latin America and major marketing initiatives including social media marketing. … There are a lot of content providers (channel providers) around the world that offer a uniquely diversified perspective of cultures, travel and lifestyle content.”
As an increasing number of people “Cord-Cutters” no longer subscribe to the traditional cable or satellite distribution but rather a simpler lower cost means of watching content. The streaming OTT industry is expected to grow to $62 billion by 2020 — nearly triple its revenues in 2015, per Goldman Small Cap Research. Future Market Insights estimated the North America OTT market alone at $16.29 billion in 2017 with a CAGR of 17.4 percent through 2028. The arrival of 5G technology this year has the potential to accelerate the pace.
WhereverTV Broadcasting Corp. (TVTV), closed the day's trading session at $0.05, up 11.11%, on 10,459 volume with 2 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 27,392 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0399/$0.46.

Pacific Software, Inc. (PFSF)
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 $4.75, even for the day. The average volume for the last 3 months is 7 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $4.00/$5.25.
