ProGreen US, Inc. engages mainly with investments in agricultural and real estate projects in Baja California, Mexico. The Company is concentrating on intensifying its property investments in Baja California by way of its joint venture (JV) partnership with Inmobiliaria Contel, and through its subsidiary Procon Baja JV.  ProGreen US is headquartered in San Diego, California and the Company lists on the OTCQB.

Pertaining to ProGreen US’s Baja Project, the Company entered into a JV with a Mexican landowner, Inmobiliaria Contel and has jointly created Pro Baja. This is its newest JV with ProGreen owning 51 percent and Inmobiliaria Contel 49 percent. ProGreen US established an office location in Ensenada. It serves as headquarters for all of its activities in Baja California. Procon and Contel operate from this location. At present,  Contel is active in the high margin produce industry, growing crops for exporters to the U.S. market, with a large quantity of land available for expansion under its JV partnership.  

  Procon has acquired 5,100 acres of land with 4.7 miles of oceanfront on the Bay of El Rosario, for which a master plan is being drawn for the development of a very large, completely green, global vacation and retirement community called "CieloMar." ProGreen US completed development of the first tract of land that comprises roughly 300 acres. Of this, some 100 usable acres were cleared.

  ProGreen US previously signed another agreement for a further 1,900 acres (500-800 usable for farming), and a 3-year option for 11,500 acres (1000-2500 usable for farming). The land, upon development and preparation, will be offered for long term lease (10-15 years), with the JV holding the title.

ProGreen US’s subsidiary, Procon Baja JV (Procon), earlier closed on the purchase and took possession of the new 2,500-acre tract of land in Baja California. The total purchase price is $160,000 (USD).

Recently, ProGreen US provided an update on the status of its agricultural project in Baja California, Mexico. In 2017, ProGreen funded the development of a pilot farming operation, ProGreen Farms™ Arenoso, in Baja California, Mexico. The farm is a joint operation between ProGreen and Inmobiliaria Contel, the land owner. Starting from raw land and developed into what is now roughly 100 acres of jalapeno chili peppers at Rancho Arenoso near the town of El Rosario, the farm is now approaching the peak of this year’s harvest.

Roxgold, Inc. is a gold mining company with its key asset, the high grade Yaramoko Gold Mine, situated in the Houndé greenstone area of Burkina Faso, West Africa. Roxgold declared commercial production on October 1, 2016. The Company is a Best in Class West African Gold Miner. Roxgold has its headquarters in Toronto, Ontario. The Company lists on the OTCQB.

Burkina Faso is a landlocked nation, located in West Africa. It covers an area of about 274,000 square kilometers. Burkina Faso is the fastest growing gold producer in Africa. The nation was the 4th largest gold producer in Africa in 2012. Eight new mines have been commissioned there over the past six years.

The Yaramoko permit encompasses approximately 196km2 in the Province of Balé in southwestern Burkina Faso. The property is approximately 200 kilometers southwest from the capital city of Ouagadougou. Manifold gold and base metal deposits have been identified at Yaramoko.

Regional exploration on the Yaramoko permit to date has provided encouraging results at Bagassi South, the 109 Zone, 109 Hill, the 117 Zone, the 300 Zone and Haho, as well as along the Boni Shear where large gold in soil anomalies of greater than 30 ppb have been outlined in earlier soil geochemistry surveys. Two drill rigs are at Bagassi South and one drill rig is on the regional targets of the 55 Zone footwall, Haho, and Boni Shear.

For the twelve-month period ended December 31, 2017, Roxgold produced 126,990 ounces of gold, exceeding the upper limit of the increased guidance range 115,000 to 125,000 ounces, versus 75,078 ounces for the seven-month period in 2016. The Company sold 126,555 ounces of gold totaling Revenues of $159.4 million in fiscal year 2017 versus $41.4 million during the three-month period of commercial production in 2016 ( $98.0 million during the seven-month period of 2016).

Moreover in 2017, Roxgold completed a positive Feasibility Study (FS) for the Bagassi South Project, which showed an after-tax IRR (Internal Rate of Return) of 53.2 percent with 1.8 year payback on initial capital. As well, the Company started construction work at site to facilitate the Bagassi South expansion project;
This week, Roxgold announced a record Q1 production of 40,452 ounces of gold from its Yaramoko Gold mine in Burkina Faso. Highlights also include record quarterly processing throughput of 71,576 tonnes - over 8 percent above nameplate capacity. The record gold production for Q1 was driven by improved operating performance in the mine and processing plant.

Construction works at Bagassi South continue on schedule. They remain on course for delivery of first ore in Q4 2018. Furthermore, three drill rigs continue to operate at Yaramoko targeting extensions to the 55 Zone and recently identified targets in the regional package. This includes the Bagassi Corridor.

Roxgold expects to release its Q1 2018 financial results after market hours on May 15, 2018.

Ethos Gold Corp. (ETHOF)

Stocks News Feed, Stockwatch, Penny Stock Hub, Mining and Energy, Marketwired, Resource Stock Digest, 4-Traders, The Street, Stockhouse, MarketWatch, InvestorsHub, YCharts, Streetwise Reports, GuruFocus, TradingView, Mining News North, YCharts, Dividend Investor, and Investors Hangout reported previously on Ethos Gold Corp. (ETHOF), and today we report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Ethos Gold Corp. concentrates on the acquisition and exploration of mineral properties around the world. Currently, the Company holds one property in the White Gold District in the Yukon Territory. Ethos Gold has 100 percent ownership in the WC property. The Company primarily explores for gold, antimony, arsenic, lead, and silver deposits. Ethos Gold is headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia. Incorporated in 2007, the Company lists on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB.

Ethos Gold’s WC property comprises 44 contiguous quartz claims totaling about 815 ha. The WC property is a target for intrusion-related 'Pogo-style' mineralization or fault controlled epithermal systems such as the nearby Coffee Deposit. Ethos Gold contracted Ground Truth Exploration, Inc. in 2012 to conduct a small 301 soil geochemical sampling program for the WC property. This was completed in July of 2012.

The intention of the program was to identify areas of interest based on anomalous gold in soil values and to establish the mineral potential of the property. Fourteen sample sites returned values in excess of 10 ppb Au with a maximum value of 171 ppb Au. The sample with the second highest gold concentration (119 ppb Au) has coincident anomalous antimony (19 ppm Sb), arsenic (117 ppm As), lead (200 ppm Pb), and silver (13 ppm Ag). The anomalous multi-element chemistry is similar to that identified by Ethos Gold at the Betty property, attributed to bonanza vein mineralization derived from and related to Western Copper's Casino Au-Cu-Mo porphyry.

Last week, Ethos Gold announced the completion of the 2018 sampling and trenching program (Phase 2 work) and to provide initial trench results for its Pine Pass vanadium project, situated on the John Hart Highway, northeastern British Columbia about 70 kilometers west of Chetwynd, and 200 kilometers north of Prince George.

Mr. Craig Roberts, P.Eng., President and Chief Executive Officer of Ethos Gold, stated, "We are very pleased and excited with these initial trench and chip sampling results. In Trenches 1 and 2 the grades are comparable with other development stage black shale hosted vanadium projects and the widths are impressive. These trenches are located 1.1 km apart and with the mineralization hosted in dipping bedded stratigraphy the drill target in this area appears relatively well defined with a significant target envelope.”

Ethos Gold Corp. (ETHOF), closed Thursday's trading session at $0.1691, down 0.29%, on 250 volume with 1 trade. The average volume for the last 3 months is 5,326 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0903/$0.231.

Alternate Health Corp. (AHGIF)

MicroCapFinder, OTC Insider, MarketWatch, GuruFocus, CannabisFN, OTC Markets, InvestorsHub, The Street, Daily Marijuana Observer, WalletInvestor, Weed Newswire, and Marijuana Index reported on Alternate Health Corp. (AHGIF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Alternate Health Corp. is an international medical cannabis company headquartered in San Antonio, Texas. It provides software solutions for the medical cannabis industry. The Company utilizes best in class technology, research, education, production, and laboratories to increase the awareness, regulatory compliance, and appropriate usage of cannabinoids in modern medical practices. The Company lists on the OTC Markets’ OTCQB.

Its companies are: Alternate Health Clinics; Alternate Health Labs; Alternate Medical Media; Alternate RX; CanaPass; and VIP-Patient. Alternate Health has operations in Venice, California; San Antonio, Texas; and Toronto, Ontario. 

The Company is a diversified healthcare investment and Holdings Company. It operates through a network of subsidiaries, which share proprietary, highly secure cloud-based software solutions to improve efficiencies and protect patient data.

Alternate Health’s services include practice management and controlled substance management software, blood analysis and toxicology labs, clinical research, continuing education programs, nutraceutical products, and security and control services to the emerging medical cannabis industry.

Alternate Health develops software applications and processing systems for the medical industry using proprietary technology platforms (VIP-Patient & CanaPass systems) to help doctors in their practice management and patients with their need for premier medical care.

Recently, Alternate Health announced that it entered into a software-as-a-service (SaaS) agreement with MedMen to provide e-commerce and digital payment services. Alternate Health's StatePass system will commence beta testing with MedMen in their New York dispensaries.

Medmen is one of the largest cannabis companies in the United States. The StatePass system is a cloud-based software platform. This platform manages the end-to-end transactions involved in providing safe access to medical cannabis to eligible patients.

Last month, Alternate Health announced the transformation of the CanaPass Patient Management system to a complete Ethereum-based blockchain Electronic Medical Records (EMR)/Electronic Health Records (HER) system. Based on Ethereum's platform, CanaPass' HIPAA and PIPEDA-compliant system records important medical data in blocks on a distributed ledger. Each patient's CanaPass account includes its own private cryptographic key used to identify and decrypt the associated private information from the distributed ledger.

Alternate Health announced at the beginning of May a proposed plan that the Company believes will considerably increase shareholder value by way of a spinoff of its blockchain payment systems, Alternate Health Labs subsidiary, and other non-cannabis assets, into a new corporation, which will apply to be listed on a major American exchange.

Alternate Health has taken a leadership position in blockchain financial and healthcare solutions. A key product is its Zi App Blockchain Payment Gateway. It was originally designed to facilitate digital payments in cannabis. However, this system has earned substantial interest as a payment solution for even larger markets, such as multi-level marketing, commercial leases and equipment rentals. The new company would be free to negotiate licensing and strategic partnerships without the association of cannabis.

On May 10, 2018, Alternate Health announced that its Management received Board approval to explore a spinoff plan for the Company's non-cannabis assets. The estimation is that this will take a minimum of three to four months to complete this due diligence process.

Alternate Health Corp. (AHGIF), closed Thursday's trading session at $0.44, up 22.73%, on 136,140 volume with 76 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 26,890 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.316/$2.20.

The QualityStocks Company Corner

Aziza Project LLC

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Aziza Project LLC.

Aziza Project LLC is a fund that tokenizes high potential oil and gas businesses in Africa, enabling them to raise funds for profit and social good. Aziza Project and its tokenization approach aims to address the obstacles associated with traditional fundraising by taking advantage of the benefits of blockchain technology to eliminate the cost and need for middlemen and complex administration. Aziza Project’s token, the Aziza Coin, is an asset-backed mid-to-long-term security token.

The First in the Fund

The vision for Aziza Project’s primary business is to light up Africa, bringing electricity to the 630 million people who currently have no access to the grid and typically depend on wood and paraffin for their energy needs, and in the process to deliver excellent returns to investors.

Through Aziza Coin, Aziza Project owns 20% of Africa New Energies (ANE), which holds rights to a 22,000-square-kilometer prospective hydrocarbon concession in Namibia. This potentially world-scale oil and gas deposit in eastern Namibia, bordering Botswana and the Kalahari Desert, could transform the region’s energy supply and provide a powerful boost to growth in Namibia. By using big data algorithms, the ANE project will be developed at a fraction of the cost of traditional methods.

In 2017 ANE rejected a $500 million unsolicited bid in the belief that this prime asset can deliver far more for investors, the local community and the people of Africa. The bid rejection has been superseded by an innovative fundraising model to unlock the value that ANE data indicates is under the ground. This sparked the genesis of Aziza Project, the creation of an oil and gas fund set up to raise capital to take ANE and other high potential oil and gas businesses to the next level smartly and efficiently.

Aziza Coins

Aziza Project is seeking to raise $60 million through the sale of Aziza Coins, an asset-backed security token compliant with the Ethereum blockchain’s ERC20 standard. The asset, a 20 percent interest in ANE, is estimated to be worth $100 million based on the value of the unsolicited bid. Funding raised by the Aziza Coin Initial Coin Offering, which began in October 2018, will be used to finance a 10 well drilling program for ANE’s Namibian concession and to develop an oil and gas fund. Proving a hydrocarbon resource will result in significant value creation for Aziza Coin holders. Proving of the project’s estimated 1.6 billion barrels of oil equivalent resource could value ANE at $3.1 billion, which would result in Aziza Project’s holding to potentially be worth up to $620 million.

The Aziza Coin seeks to create significant investor value that marries a compelling business case with the efficiency of crypto. People who buy Aziza Coins will have an indirect fractional ownership of the assets held by Aziza Project. And with tokens listed on exchanges, investors will have a degree of liquidity that private company shareholders do not have and with greater access to real returns. Aziza Coin token holders are the sole economic beneficiaries of Aziza Project’s investments and are assured that at least 51 percent of funds will be used to buy back tokens anytime a profit is made in a calendar year.

Typical investment funds charge a myriad of fees and administrative charges. These will not be present within Aziza Project LLC, with no annual fees, exit fees or salary expenses. The vision is to get as much of the investor’s dollar into the assets under management, and then on exit get as much of the asset value back to the investor. Aziza Project believes that tokenization of assets and securities is the future. Distributed ledger technology will be the catalyst for the benefit of both investors and businesses forging their way.

The Visionaries

The Aziza Coin ICO is different because its management team is very clear on valuations and laser-focused on the broader objective established by Aziza Project. The Aziza Coin is an asset-backed security token with a strong management team grounded in blue-chip corporate backgrounds and established real-world businesses.

CEO Robert Pyke has a professional background that covers consumer goods, consultancy and now cryptocurrency. Much of his career was spent at Unilever where he worked in a variety of finance roles, rising to become finance director for Unilever’s €20bn turnover Beauty and Personal Care division.

Aziza Project co-founder Shakes Motsilili has an Investments Administration background and worked for several years at Momentum Wealth as head of Actuarial Support. He resigned in 2012 to become an entrepreneur with a vision to electrify the whole of Africa.

Brendon Raw, CTO, is a South Africa-based software developer and investor in the energy technology, property and digital media sectors. Brendon was lead developer on the sales and revenue system of the one of the most valuable internet companies of its day – excite@home and was BP’s tactical application developer, creating several mission-critical commodity trading systems.

United Battery Metals Corp. (CSE: UBM) (OTC: UBMCF) (FWB: 0UL)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight United Battery Metals Corp. (UBMCF).

Itis with much pleasure that United Battery Metals Corp. (CSE: UBM, OTC: UBMCF,FWB: 0UL) ("United Battery Metals" or the "Company") wishes to announce that former Goldcorp Senior Geologist Michael A. Dehn has accepted the role of President and CEO of United Battery Metals. Mr.Dehn has over 25 years of experience in the mining industry. As a graduate ofthe University of Waterloo Michael Dehn worked for Goldcorp for 11 years.During his 11 year tenure with that company Michael played a vital role inGoldcorp's regional exploration programs within the Red Lake District, as wellas the Goldcorp Challenge – where all of Goldcorp's Red Lake Mine Data wasshared with the whole world and outside experts had the opportunity to winprizes totalling $575,000 to participants who came up with the best suggestionson where to find the next six million ounces of gold in the mine.

United Battery Metals Corp. (CSE: UBM) (OTC: UBMCF) (FWB: 0UL) is a vanadium exploration company focused on becoming the first vanadium producer in North America. The company’s flagship project is the Wray Mesa Project, an exploration-stage vanadium property located in Montrose County, Colorado. The property consists of over 107 contiguous mining claims on about 3000 acres. United Battery Metals recently announced that it has tripled its vanadium rich land package in Colorado and Utah. The claims are located on land where both the surface and mineral ownership is held by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) of the U.S. Department of Interior. Valid unpatented mining claims grant the holder the right of mineral possession as allowed by the General Mining Law of 1872, subject to the various state and federal rules and regulations pertaining to mineral exploitation.

Global demand for vanadium as a strategic metal has exploded in recent years. Vanadium price surges have hit recent highs of approximately $22.63 per pound from about $9 per pound last year.? As a result, mining companies are returning to exploration efforts for vanadium.

The Wray Mesa Project area is part of the La Sal Creek District, which has a long history of exploration and production efforts with records showing drill exploration likely started there in the late 1940s with geologists from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the Atomic Energy Commission, then continued from the 1960s through the 1980s with private sector interests involved. Based on historical records, the Wray Mesa Project appears to have very good to excellent potential with an inferred resource of 500,000 pounds of uranium- and a current estimated vanadium resource of 2,640,000 pounds as per the last 43-101 prepared in 2013 by Anthony Adkins who is a qualified geologist.

The world’s vanadium demand is set to increase significantly as China implements tighter controls over this critical element as it is used in infrastructure to strengthen steel. With trade war tensions mounting, the U.S. will likely be in dire need of a domestic supply of vanadium for use in steel plants opening nationwide and grid power storage. In fact, the White House has deemed vanadium one of 35 critical elements to United States national and economic security (USGS). US Steel announced additional plants opening nationwide, and this bull market in domestic steel production is likely to increase the demand for a domestic source of vanadium as China has begun restricting vanadium exports to the U.S. amid mounting tensions between the two countries over tariffs and certain critical elements such vanadium.

UBM utilized resource estimation software to model the mineralization detected in a number of the 715 historical and 24 recent drill holes within the project area. Results of the model run, minus the estimated effects of the historic mining, identify an indicated resource of approximately 85,500 short tons at an average grade of 0.16% eU308 for a total of 271,000 pounds of contained uranium. Inferred resources total 57,400 short tons at an average grade of 0.15% of eU308 for a total of about 169,000 pounds of contained uranium. The vanadium resource for the two categories, based on a conservative V:U ratio of 6:1, is 1,626,000 (O.95% average grade) and 1,014,000 (0.88% average grade) pounds, respectively.

Vanadium has multiple uses in modern society including being used in vanadium redox flow batteries (“VRFBs”), car charging stations, nuclear power plants and in steel manufacturing. An article in Mining.com notes that vanadium pentoxide (V2O5), which is used in the production of VRFBs used in energy storage systems, breached US$20 a pound in September 2018 for the first time since 2005, a four-fold increase from the start of 2017.

California recently announced that all homes and mid rises must install solar panels by 2020. Vanadium redox flow batteries (VRFBs) are by far the most superior batteries for large scale energy storage systems and the reason why the Vanadium Redox Flow batteries will dwarf the lithium battery demand. California was the first to announce this green initiative and many experts expect that the revolution will be implemented nationwide in the near future.

Vanadium is one of the 35 minerals deemed critical to the national security and economy of the United States. Among the important uses of vanadium are the following:

  • Fast-charging VRFBs have unique characteristics making them especially attractive when compared to conventional batteries. VRFBs can operate at any temperature, be charged and discharged at the same time, have greater design flexibility and a 25-plus year lifecycle. VRFB’s promise to be a major player in the green energy storage revolution because they are 100 percent reusable, recyclable, are nonflammable, compact, able to provide large grid energy storage, can be fully contained and are seen as a viable alternative to lithium-ion batteries.
  • VRFBs can be used in a variety of energy storage applications including microgrids, during peak shaving periods and for load leveling, as an uninterruptible power supply, for wind and solar farms, and as an off-grid power supply.
  • Approximately 85 percent of vanadium produced is used as ferrovanadium or as an additive to strengthen and harden steel used for applications in axles, crankshafts, gears, surgical instruments and tools, knives, jet engines, high-speed airframes, dental implants, and in seamless tubing for the aerospace, defense and bicycle industries.
  • Vanadium alloys are used in nuclear reactors because of the metal’s low neutron-absorbing properties.

The management team at United Battery Metals Corp. includes president, CEO and Director Matthew Rhoades, the former State Geologist for New Mexico and an accomplished professional geologist with direct working experience in exploration and development projects at numerous deposits and mines throughout the American West, Canada, Mexico and South America. He is joined by George Sharpe, a qualified Mineral Exploration Geoscientist, QP, MCIM and CGT, with over 23 years of global mineral exploration in iron coal, gold, base metals, rare earths, uranium, PGE’s, diamonds, iron and industrial minerals.

United Battery Metals Corp. (UBMCF), closed the day's trading session at $1.18, up 2.61%, on 284,805 volume with 296 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 99,166 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.65/$1.58.

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTC: FTSSF)

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

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX-V: FCC; ASX: FCC; OTCQX: FTSSF) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has commenced testing cobalt hydroxide material as feedstock for the First Cobalt Refinery.

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTC: FTSSF), with headquarters in Canada, is the largest land owner in the Cobalt Camp in Ontario with control of over 10,000 hectares (nearly 25,000 acres) of prospective land and 50 historic cobalt/silver mines. The company’s assets include a mill and the only permitted cobalt extraction refinery in North America capable of producing battery material, providing an integrated solution for cobalt projects. First Cobalt began drilling in the historic Cobalt Camp in 2017 and seeks to build shareholder value through new discovery and growth opportunities.

First Cobalt’s 2018 $C7 million drilling program, which includes testing different styles of mineralized areas throughout the Cobalt Camp in more than 10 past-producing mines known to contain cobalt, is a significant expansion over its 2017 exploration activities. The company received positive test drill results from the Bellellen mine location, with early results confirming the presence of high-grade cobalt and nickel, prompting First Cobalt to increase its drilling program at that site. A prospecting sampling program of existing muckpiles around the camp’s historic mines, trenches, pits and surrounding bedrock could provide an early production scenario.

First Cobalt Corp. is moving quickly to leverage its potential against an economic background that estimates global consumption for refined cobalt is set to grow at an average rate of approximately 5 percent per annum for the next 10 years. The electric vehicle market, in particular, is driving this sector since more than 50 percent of the world’s current production of cobalt is used in the manufacture of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. The global lithium-ion battery market, as estimated by Zion Market Research, indicates the value at around USD $31 billion in 2016 and is expected to generate revenue of nearly USD $68 billion by end of 2022, growing at a compound annual growth rate of slightly above 17 percent.

First Cobalt is embracing innovation in the mining sector, utilizing a digital compilation of 100-plus years of mining and geological data spanning the historically prolific Cobalt Mining Camp’s lifespan. First Cobalt’s management team is also assessing the ability of artificial intelligence to accelerate the discovery cycle. As a member of the Mineral Exploration Research Centre (MERC) and Metal Earth Project, First Cobalt conducts regional geophysical surveys for geological interpretation of structures controlling cobalt-silver mineralization.

Standard Lithium Ltd. (TSX.V: SLL) (FRA: S5L) (OTC: STLHF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Standard Lithium Ltd. (OTC: STLHF).

Standard Lithium Ltd. (TSXV: SLL) (OTC-Nasdaq Intl. Designation: STLHF) (FRA: S5L), is pleased to announce that Standard Lithium has been admitted into the Nasdaq International Designation program under the symbol OTC – Nasdaq International Designation: STLHF. The Company's Nasdaq International Designation profile page can be found at http://ibn.fm/iheCZ.

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.

Market Opportunity

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.

Leadership

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.

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

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

American Helium (TSX.V: AHE) (OTC: AHELF) was featured today in coverage by Cannagreed.com News Commentary. Based on the results of Tuesday’s election, It's just a matter of time before marijuana will become legal in all 50 states. A recent poll shows 93% of Americans are now in favor of legalization. And this poll doesn’t even account for the popularity and growing demand for CBD infused products, which will be legal in all 50 upon the imminent passage of the 2018 Farm Bill.

American Helium (TSX.V: AHE) (OTC: AHELF) is a resource exploration company focused on the global growth of technology-driven demand for helium and the development of helium resources in North America.

The Canadian helium exploration and development company is led by a experienced management and technical team. The company has a diverse range of projects in known areas for Helium exploration.

The company has executed a project agreement with Yankee Resources LLC of Golden, CO and has appointed LoneTree Energy & Associates LLC to acquire certain acreage in SE Colorado. The project consists of two parts. The first objective is to re-drill two wells that have proven helium resources. Both were plugged and abandoned in the mid-nineties, offering the potential for near term production. The second part of the project will offer an exploration focus through the acquisition of up to 14,000 acres of land a shoot a 3D seismic survey of some 28 square miles to mature prospects in the Upper Morrow formation where helium content of 4 to 5% is expected. The seismic survey is planned for late 2018 and can be carried out after the harvest season and in parallel with the re-entry or re-drill of the two wells.

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

The company holds a 100 percent working interest and 87.5 percent net revenue interest in 12 federal leases at its Bruin Point property spanning across 17,000 acres in the Greater Uintah Basin, Carbon County, Utah.

Evaluation is currently ongoing to determine potential additional acquisitions in regions that are known for their helium production.

The company has a satellite office in Denver aimed at facilitating expansion in SE Colorado. Company President and CEO Frank Jacobs, a petroleum engineer with 35+ years of operational experience, oversees all U.S.-based operations.

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

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

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

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

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

Additional information about the American Helium research and exploration activities will become available in the months to come. With its diverse selection of projects, the company is positioning itself to capture the numerous opportunities stemming from increasing helium prices and the growing global demand. Successful implementation of the above strategies is contingent on a number of items including the ability to acquire additional acreage.  The Company is actively seeking the capital necessary to implement the drill program.

American Helium (AHELF), closed the day's trading session at $0.0594, even for the day, on 8 volume with 1 trade. The average volume for the last 3 months is 8,814 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.047/$0.769.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG)

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

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (OTC: REFG), through its state-of-the-art Green platform, removes the need to deal in cash-only transactions when consumers visit state-licensed dispensaries. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/E8yzU.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG), headquartered in Cheyenne, Wyoming, is a first-tier merchant processing cannabis industry pioneer, offering one of the first and only comprehensive card processing operations of its kind to serve the state-sanctioned medical marijuana industry. The company’s state of the art system, which also tracks sales and tax collection, and eliminates the need to deal in cash-only transactions.

Through its robust, closed-loop merchant processing system, the company’s unique “StateSourced” proprietary system enables authorized operation under FinCEN parameters and complies with all regulatory frameworks. StateSourced is tailored to deliver full-spectrum merchant processing services, providing the convenience of modern commercial card processing resources and making it the first operation of its kind geared to the legal cannabis industry.

StateSourced is not a prepaid or gift card, which is an important variable for merchants since standard banking institutions have not offered this form of payment processing to the legal cannabis industry. Federal law still considers marijuana illegal under the Controlled Substances Act, although 29 states and the District of Columbia have legalized the plant either for medicinal or recreational uses or both. This restriction has kept financial institutions at bay since most banks are federally insured and haven’t been inclined to venture into the nascent industry.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions is able to offer its StateSourced card on a state-by-state basis where the card can be used in purchasing product from a legal, authorized vendor, providing a much-needed option for consumers and businesses alike. In another first, the company is collaborating with First Bitcoin Capital Corporation to integrate First Bitcoin’s cryptocurrency ($Weed) with Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions’ StateSourced payment gateway. This collaboration will allow state-licensed marijuana establishments across the nation to accept both StateSourced debit cards and cryptocurrencies such as WeedCoin and Bitcoin.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions president and CEO Jeremy Roberts and his executive team are working with state lawmakers to introduce legislation in an effort to address the growing problems in banking for the medical cannabis industry. For companies in the emerging legal cannabis industry, where retail and non-retail transactions such as vendor payments and payroll are almost exclusively paid for with cash, the solutions offered by StateSourced can help businesses avoid the inherent risks associated with a cash-intensive sector. Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions has also signed its first StateSourced contract with a Las Vegas-based vertically integrated marijuana establishment.

“We’ve completed our transition from development stage to revenue stage,” says Roberts. “We have just started our business development efforts and the market is responding very well. We anticipate having many more, similar releases.”

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions provides end-to-end management across multiple systems for medicinal marijuana operations. The company solves the fragmentation problem experienced by many of these rapidly growing companies by identifying tools that are important to dispensaries and customizing those tools to meet the specific needs of this unique industry.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG), closed the day's trading session at $0.024, off by 4.00%, on 203,622 volume with 23 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 463,649 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0167/$0.092.

The region’s historic resource estimate of lithium is well documented in a 1956 Assessment Report developed by a previous owner, Lithium Corporation of Canada Ltd. The project’s historical resource estimate of 1.2 million tons grading 1.51% lithium-oxide over a strike length of 365 meters and to a depth of 213 meters is being updated by QMC through a detailed channel sampling and subsequent drill program.

North Face Software Ltd. recently created an interactive 3-D model of the Irgon Dike utilizing all historical data derived from past drilling and underground work. The 3-D model clearly demonstrates that exploration and underground development has only taken place on the central portion of the dike, leaving significant potential to quickly increase tonnage.

The company’s latest assay results, obtained from 144 channel samples at QMC’s Irgon Lithium Mine Project, provided encouraging and positive results that compare favorably with the historic assays. QMC has received a drill permit from the Sustainable Development Office of the Manitoba government and is in the process of requesting and assessing bids from drilling contractors. The company plans to begin a 2,000-meter drill program to confirm the historic lithium oxide assay results documented in the historic 1953-54 drill program.

QMC’s experienced leadership team includes specialists in mineral exploration, geology, engineering, new business development, marketing and investor relations. The company’s team of qualified advisors includes consultant Bruce E. Goad, P.Geo., who has 40 years of experience in mineral exploration in Canada, Argentina, Asia and Africa. As a Qualified Person, Goad has worked on numerous deposit styles including rare element pegmatites, porphyry, banded iron formation (BIF) gold deposits, skarn, greisens,  and VMS. He has a wide and varied skill set which includes precious, base, industrial and rare metal projects with a sharp focus on gold exploration. Goad is the author of several scholarly publications on pegmatite granites of the southeastern Manitoba region.

The market for lithium has surged over the past three years with prices per metric ton tripling. The world’s rising demand for portable power can easily been seen in the electric vehicle and mobile device industries – both of which use lithium-based, renewable batteries as a power resource. QMC’s high potential prospects and experienced management team, both in geology and corporate finance, put QMC and its shareholders in an excellent position to take advantage of the lithium, precious and base metals markets.

QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (QMCQF), closed the day's trading session at $0.2298, off by 4.25%, on 120,200 volume with 40 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 104,036 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.168/$1.46.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight The Green Organic Dutchman (OTC: TGODF).

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF) was featured today in a report by Investorideas.com, which examines how cannabis may have been federally legalized for recreational use in Canada this fall but many cannabis companies are looking a year into the future at the next big step in the market; October 17th of 2019 when edibles, oils and infused beverage products can join the Canadian recreational market.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF), whose principal location is in Hamilton, Ontario, produces farm grown, organic, pesticide-free medical cannabis in small batches using all natural, organic craft growing principles. TGOD is licensed under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) to cultivate medical cannabis. The company carries out its principal activities producing cannabis pursuant to the provisions of the ACMPR and the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (Canada).

Committed to becoming the global leader in delivering organic cannabis solutions that enhance people’s lives, TGOD consistently adheres to the highest levels of excellence. 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.

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

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

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP) has raised, in a non-brokered private placement, a total of $1,515,440. Net proceeds will be used for construction of a new lab in Canada, LXRP-driven R&D and general corporate purposes. The offering consists of 947,150 units at an issue price of $1.60 per unit (http://nnw.fm/g81uD). Lexaria, due to strong demand, increased the size of the placement. Also today, CannabisNewsWire released a report highlighting the company looking at how, as the U.S. is still grappling with the legalization of recreational cannabis in Canada, its challenges are likely to increase if what is happening in its other neighbor’s legal system results in the legalization of recreational pot.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LXRP), closed the day's trading session at $0.0139, up 1.83%, on 10,440,484 volume with 228 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 10,968,292 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0123/$0.16.
