(SNWV), and today we are reporting on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

SANUWAVE Health, Inc. is a shock wave technology business. Its initial focus is on the development and commercialization of patented non-invasive, biological response activating devices for the repair and regeneration of skin, musculoskeletal tissue, and vascular structures. SANUWAVE Health researches, designs, manufactures, markets and services its products internationally. SANUWAVE Health is headquartered in Suwanee, Georgia.

The Company applies its patented Pulsed Acoustic Cellular Expression (PACE®) technology in wound healing, orthopedic/spine, plastic/cosmetic, and cardiac conditions. Its portfolio of regenerative medicine products and product candidates activate biologic signaling and angiogenic responses. This produces new vascularization and microcirculatory improvement. This helps in restoring the body's normal healing processes and leads to regeneration of tissue.

SANUWAVE’s lead product candidate for the global wound care market, dermaPACE®, is CE marked across Europe. It has Canada, Australia, and New Zealand device license approval for the treatment of skin and subcutaneous soft tissue. In the U.S., dermaPACE is now under the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA's) de novo petition review process for the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers. Diabetic foot ulcer treatment additionally has approval in South Korea.

SANUWAVE’s belief is that it has demonstrated that its technology is safe and effective in stimulating healing in chronic conditions of the foot (plantar fasciitis) and the elbow (lateral epicondylitis) via its U.S. Class III PMA approved OssaTron® device, and also stimulating bone and chronic tendonitis regeneration in the musculoskeletal environment through the use of its OssaTron, Evotron® and orthoPACE® devices in Europe, Asia, and Asia/Pacific. Moreover, there are license/partnership opportunities for the Company’s shock wave technology for non-medical uses. This includes energy, water, food, and industrial markets.

In December of 2016, SANUWAVE Health announced that it, in partnership with Ortho-Medico, a member of B&Co, Herzele, Belgium, is sponsoring ongoing clinical investigation on diabetic foot ulcers (DFU). The trial will be conducted by the VUB (Free University of Brussels) and UZ Brussel (University Hospital).

Previous work in 2015 at this hospital found that DFU patients, treated in-home with the dermaPACE system, responded positively to the treatment. The trial will take the home-care procedures, used in a limited basis, and extend them to a randomized, controlled trial of 100 subjects. The intention of the trial is to compare the effectiveness of in-home treatment of DFUs utilizing dermaPACE versus in-home treatment of DFUs using standard of care only. The trial will help to provide evidence that dermaPACE can be used outside the clinical setting and increase the potential for increased sales in Europe.

In February 2017, SANUWAVE Health announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issued SANUWAVE patent number 9,566,209 titled "Shock Wave Electrodes with Fluid Holes", which has an expiration date on June 21, 2033. The patent relates to a new construction of the spark gap electrodes employed to generate acoustic pressure shock waves in the Company’s devices that allows a longer useful life for the applicators.

Recently, SANUWAVE Health announced that it is entering into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with eKare, Inc. This is to develop novel wound care analysis and management solutions. Linking SANUWAVE's dermaPACE® wound treatment device with eKare's inSight® 3D wound imaging and analytics system, the two companies will work to produce the industry's most complete wound management solution. eKare’s commitment is to the design and development of wound assessment solutions utilizing the most contemporary machine intelligence, computer-vision, as well as mobile technology.

(IDMMF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

IDM Mining Ltd. is a mineral exploration and development company based in Vancouver, British Columbia. It concentrates on low capital expenditure, high-grade precious metal asset development. The Company’s current exploration and development activities focus on precious metals in British Columbia (B.C.). IDM’s chief emphasis is on the high-grade, underground Red Mountain Gold Project. IDM Mining’s shares trade on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB.

The Red Mountain Gold Project is 15 kilometers east of Stewart, B.C. It consists of 17,125 hectares. IDM Mining is advancing through the B.C. and Canadian environmental assessment processes with complete, thorough, and continuing consultation with Nisga'a Nation.

Red Mountain has first-rate exploration potential for more discoveries along a 12-kilometer trend of manifold prospects and favorable geology. IDM Mining is advancing a Feasibility Study (FS) for a high-grade, underground gold mine. The Company foresees mainly bulk underground mining methods and the production of gold doré on site.

Red Mountain hosts a well-drilled, high-grade resource, accessed by a production-sized underground decline. The deposit (at an average potential mining width of 16 meters) is amenable to low-cost bulk mining techniques such as longhole stoping.

In late November, IDM Mining announced additional trenching and surface sampling results from the Lost Valley Discovery and Cambria Zone within its 100 percent-owned Red Mountain Gold Project situated in the Golden Triangle of northwestern British Columbia.

Highlights of the summer 2018 surface exploration program to late November included mineralization being traced over 310 meters in length with thickness ranging from 0.50 to 9.0 meters true thickness. The Money Rock and Randell Zones are contiguous.

Money Rock included 117 samples - average 11.6 g/t gold and 42.4 g/t silver (capped). Money Rock high-grade silver samples include 2,617, 2,059 and 846 g/t silver.

In the Randell Zone, a 20-meter-long trench averages 6.46 g/t gold and 35.0 g/t silver. In the Cambria Zone, a new 1,000 by 500-meter exposure includes 18.74, 14.45, 13.50 and 13.28 g/t gold. Earlier this month, IDM Mining announced that it completed the 2018 underground drilling program at the advanced-stage Red Mountain Underground Gold Project. The Company completed the drilling program employing three core rigs from a winterized camp and shop facility located adjacent to production-size underground workings.

Mr. Robert McLeod, President and Chief Executive Officer of IDM Mining, said "We are pleased with the validation of our geological model which has significantly opened up exploration potential near the current underground workings at Red Mountain. We will include results from this drilling program in an updated resource estimate in 2019. In addition to the increased resources announced earlier this year, these results would be included in an updated feasibility study.”

BuTab (REL-1028) is Relmada’s investigational, oral formulation of buprenorphine - an opioid that is extensively used to treat addiction and chronic pain. The design of BuTab is to be delivered orally and reach safe and effective blood levels of buprenorphine through the gastrointestinal route of administration due to its modified release profile.

Relmada Therapeutics announced in April 2017, that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted Fast Track designation for d-Methadone (REL-1017 dextromethadone), the Company’s novel N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist in development for the adjunctive treatment of major depressive disorder.

The European Patent Office issued a notice of allowance for patent application number 13773543.7 for "D-methadone for the treatment of psychiatric symptoms." This patent provides broad coverage in Europe for d-Methadone (dextromethadone, REL-1017). Relmada Therapeutics also acquired the international rights to develop and market dextromethadone (REL-1017).

Earlier this month, Relmada Therapeutics announced that clinical data demonstrating increased plasma levels of brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in healthy subjects treated with REL-1017 (dextromethadone) were presented at the annual American College of Neuropsychopharmacology meeting.

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) (OTCQX: FTSSF) (ASX: FCC), a North American pure-play cobalt company whose flagship asset is the Iron Creek Cobalt Project located in Idaho, has filed its first NI 43-101 mineral resource estimate for the project and is already anticipating an updated resource estimate in early 2019. In a recently released corporate video, members of the company’s senior leadership team offered a compelling discussion defining the characteristics that make Iron Creek a unique cobalt asset (http://nnw.fm/67M0o).

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.

The company’s clear pathway to production and cash flow generation includes being one of only four fully permitted cobalt extraction refineries in Canada with significant material and processing infrastructure on site. With the price of cobalt increasing significantly and its importance in the growing battery market underpinning a strong long-term demand forecast, First Cobalt Corp. and its mining interests are primed for success.

First Cobalt Corp. President and CEO Trent Mell, a mining executive and capital markets professional with extensive international transactional experience, is joined by a team of reputable and seasoned deal-makers, mine builders and mine operators with decades of global experience in exploration, business development, geoscience, engineering and finance.

First Cobalt Corp. (FTSSF), closed the day's trading session at $0.131, up 4.20%, on 142,814 volume with 27 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 196,488 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.119/$1.29.

Sharing Services and its management team plan to travel the U.S. to hold several mini conferences to expand on the messages presented at its Happiness Convention that focus on helping people become “healthier, happier and wealthier.” Details of the company’s aggressive global expansion initiatives are soon to be announced, Oblon said.

Choom Holdings Inc. (CSE: CHOO) (OTC: CHOOF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Choom Holdings Inc. (CHOOF).

Choom Holdings Inc. (CSE: CHOO) (OTC: CHOOF) was featured today in a report by CannabisNewsWire looking at how two legislators in Nebraska have announced plans to put medical marijuana on the ballot in 2020 if lawmakers don’t pass a medical marijuana law in the session due to begin in January 2019. The two legislators from Lincoln said that their campaign would be similar to what forced the issue in Utah, Oklahoma and Missouri during the recent midterm elections.

Choom Holdings Inc. (OTC: CHOOF) (CSE: CHOO) channels the laid-back spirit of Hawaii to the Okanagan region of British Columbia with a generous nod to the inspirational, yet unofficial, history of the 1970s “Choom Gang,” a group of buddies in Honolulu (including former President Barack Obama) who knew how to relax with “choom,” the local’s term for marijuana. Choom’s trademark slogans pivot off another unconventional phrase (“Say Hello to…”), bringing a heady dose of good times and good friends together as the company invites investors to “Say Hello to Choom™” as it lights up the adult recreational cannabis market in Canada.

Choom™ has been an ACMPR (Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations) applicant since November 2013 in Vernon, B.C. The company’s first application has received security clearance and is now in the detailed review stage. They also recently announced their second late-stage ACMPR application, which is in its confirmation of readiness stage. Cannabis Compliance Inc. has been retained to help expedite Choom’s initial license applications to ensure the company’s readiness for legalization of recreational marijuana in Canada mid-summer 2018.

True to the company’s character, Choom™ is retrofitting two large facilities – No. 1 in Vernon, B.C., and No. 2 on Vancouver Island – to house its cannabis growing facilities. Phase 1 of the Vernon property will provide Choom™ with 6,800 square feet of growing space, capable of producing 660 kg/year of cannabis at an estimated revenue of $6.6 million, excluding oils. The company expects this facility to be completed by July 2018, the same month that Canada is expected to formally legalize recreational marijuana for adult use. A potential Phase 2, to be completed by the end of 2018, would add another 6,800 square feet for a total of 1,500 kg/year capacity, which would nearly double No. 1’s revenue. A Level 9 vault is also planned with a storage capacity of 15,000 kg. While the No. 2 facility on Vancouver Island is smaller – 4,500 square feet – its retrofit is also slated to be completed by July 2018. Plans include doubling this space as well, which would add about $9 million in annual revenue, excluding cannabis oils.

Choom™ announced its retail dispensary strategy with the intention of establishing market leadership in reaching the Canadian cannabis consumer. The partner program is already in the retail space design stage as the company seeks to build a chain of branded retail cannabis dispensaries in jurisdictions in Canada where recreational cannabis is legal. Choom™ Stores will have a cool, modern layout and design created to emit an authentic “Aloha” vibe. Choom™ is all about producing high-grade cultivars and curating them for a bigger audience.

A savvy, experienced management team includes Chris Bogart, president and CEO; John Oh, R.P.I.C., Operations Manager; Robert Bayrack, Master Grower, S.P.I.C.; and Adrian Robinson, Strategic Advisor. Bogart has over two decades of international experience in capital markets and was a co-founder of InMed Pharmaceuticals and Magnum Uranium. He has structured complex equity financing transactions in the U.S., Europe and Canada. Bogart is joined on the Board of Directors by Kevin Pull, Stephen Tong and John Oh.

While the medical marijuana industry is expected to double by 2021 to 500,000 registered users, the true highlight of the recreational cannabis represents the key cultural shift set to launch in Canada. With an estimated $4.9B to $8.7B retail market coming, now is the right time for a Recreation Brand like Choom™ to be involved in this growing industry. Establishing and maintaining Choom™ premium brand loyalty is a key factor in the company’s growth strategy. Get ready to “Say Hello” to opportunity, good times and good friends with Choom™.

Choom Holdings Inc. (CHOOF), closed the day's trading session at $0.30, off by 1.64%, on 300,291 volume with 112 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 387,922 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.285/$1.13.

CytoDyn Inc. (CYDY)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight CytoDyn Inc. (CYDY).

CytoDyn Inc. (OTC.QB: CYDY), a biotechnology company developing a novel humanized CCR5 monoclonal antibody for multiple therapeutic indications, announces that it has recently hired Nitya G. Ray, Ph.D. to serve as the Company’s new Chief Technology Officer – Head of Process Sciences, Manufacturing & Supply Chain. 

CytoDyn Inc. (CYDY) is a biotechnology company focused on the clinical development and potential commercialization of a new class of HIV/AIDS therapeutics or viral-entry inhibitors intended to protect healthy cells from viral infection. The company’s pipeline includes its lead product, PRO 140 for multiple indications among which are human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), graft-versus-host disease (GvHD), colon cancer, and multiple sclerosis (MS), each in various stages of development. CytoDyn first approval is focused on HIV indications for two different HIV populations.

PRO 140 is a humanized monoclonal antibody directed at CCR5, a molecular portal that HIV uses to enter T-cells. PRO 140 works by blocking the predominant HIV (R5) subtype entry into T-cells by masking this required co-receptor, CCR5.

CytoDyn has completed one pivotal phase 3 clinical trials of PRO 140 use in combination with current drugs for population that has limited treatment options. PRO 140 is also currently in another phase 3 (investigative trial) for a second approval for another HIV population. HIV continues to be a major global public health issue. There is no cure for the disease that has claimed more than 35 million lives to date, according to the World Health Organization (“WHO”). In 2017, 940,000 people around the world died from HIV-related causes. There were approximately 36.9 million people living with HIV at the end of 2017 with 1.8 million people becoming newly infected during that same year. The WHO estimates there were 21.7 million people globally receiving antiretroviral therapy (“ART”) in 2017.

HIV targets the immune system and weakens the body’s defense systems against infections and some types of cancer. As the virus destroys and impairs the function of immune cells, infected individuals gradually become immunodeficient which results in increased susceptibility to a wide range of infections, cancers and other diseases that people with healthy immune systems can fight off. The most advanced stage of HIV infection is Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS), which can take from 2 to 15 years to develop depending on the individual.

PRO 140 functions by blocking the HIV co-receptor CCR5, a molecular portal HIV uses to enter T-cells, thus preventing the HIV virus from entering the cell. CCR5 is a protein located on the surface of white blood cells that normally serves as a receptor for chemicals that attract immune cells to the site of inflammation. Clinical trials to date indicate PRO 140 does not interfere with these normal CCR5 functions. Results from phase 1 and phase 2 human clinical trials have shown PRO 140 significantly reduces viral burden in people infected with HIV. Importantly, in a recent phase 2b clinical trial, PRO 140 demonstrated it can allow a subset of R5 strain of HIV population to replace their current HIV regimen (Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy or “HAART.”) by a simple sub-cutaneous self-injectable dose of PRO 140 which is administered once a week. Some of those patients have received PRO 140 as their only therapy for almost four years.

The PRO 140 antibody appears to be a powerful antiviral agent with hardly any side effects, toxicity. More than 500 patients have used PRO 140 in clinical trial and no resistance has ever been developed in any patients including patients in monotherapy of PRO 140 for almost four years.

PRO 140, which is taken as an easy-to-use, weekly, subcutaneous self-administered dose, has almost no side effects or toxicity with no report of any serious adverse event related to PRO 140 in more than 500 patients in eight different clinical trial.

As we indicated earlier patients given PRO 140 showed no drug resistance on monotherapy for some almost four years while 76% of HAART patients developed a resistance to some portion of the lifetime drug regimen. Patient compliance with HAART is also the main reason why only 35% of HIV patients in US reporting complete viral load (VL) suppression which is VL<50 cp/mL.

In addition to its research into the powerful potential of PRO 140 for use in HIV patients, CytoDyn is pursuing PRO 140 as a therapeutic anti-viral agent in other non-HIV indications that could benefit from PRO 140’s ability to block CCR5. These immunologic indications include new reactions to cancer, transplantation rejection, autoimmune diseases and chronic inflammation such as Multiple Sclerosis. The company sees the significant potential for multiple pipeline opportunities for PRO 140.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has designated PRO 140 as a “fast track” product for HIV and granted Orphan Drug Designation to it for the prevention of GvHD in transplant patients. CytoDyn has initiated its first clinical trial with PRO 140 in an immunological indication for GvHD in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) or myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) who are undergoing bone marrow stem cell transplantation. The company is also investigating PRO 140 in animal models of cancer progression and autoimmunity with positive results and has published its animal study results in GvHD in peer-reviewed journal.

CytoDyn president and CEO Nader Z. Pourhassan, Ph.D. joined the company in 2008 and is credited for purchasing PRO 140 from Progenics in 2012 and has taken a new path to approval for the product. He is the co-inventor of monotherapy path for PRO 140. He has taken PRO 140 development from phase 2 to Completed successful phase 3 in about four years. He now has more than 10 years of drug development experience and has overseen the rapid clinical development of PRO 140 as a therapy for HIV into two phase 3 for two different indications. He also initiated PRO 140 first immunological indication in GvHD (currently in phase 2). He is also involved in preclinical and clinical development of PRO 140 in additional immunological indications.?Dr. Pourhassan, who has more than 20 years of business development experience, has led CytoDyn’s capital market activities since joining the company in 2008. He received his Bachelor of Science from Utah State University, Master of Science from Brigham Young University, and his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Utah and is the author of three books.

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD).

Sugarmade, Inc. (OTC: SGMD), one of the largest publicly traded hydroponic supply companies, is discovering new opportunities in the hemp and cannabis industry as a landmark farm bill legalizes hemp cultivation in the United States.The 2018 Farm Bill, approved by Congress and signed by President Trump, signifies important progress for enthusiasts of the cannabis plant and its by-products.

Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD) one of the largest publicly traded hydroponics supply companies moving into the industrial hemp space, is a product and brand marketing company investing in products and brands with disruptive potential.

Headquartered in Monrovia, California, a city within Los Angeles county, Sugarmade has various business operations in diverse marketplaces including packaging and paper goods for various industries, agricultural supplies.

Sugarmade has expanded into the European hydroponics supply market with a growing base of orders taken through Amazon UK. Over the past few financial quarters, Sugarmade has seen revenue growth patterns expand geographically. As recently as mid-2017, the majority of hydroponic-related revenue growth was seen from California and other West Coast marketplaces, however growth is becoming more geographically dispersed among U.S. states where legalization has eased restriction. This movement into the United Kingdom further expands the base of geographic growth areas for Sugarmade.

Sugarmade recently launched a new corporate initiative in the booming industrial hemp and CBD, committing up to $1 million in capital over the next 12 months to invest in Hempistry, Inc., a privately held Nevada corporation. Hempistry has begun planting an ultra-high cannabidiol (CBD) industrial hemp strain on a land option it holds on 23,000 acres of prime Kentucky farmland. The strain of industrial hemp being grown by Hempistry is ultra-rich in CBD but contains less than 0.3 percent of THC, the psychoactive ingredient found in cannabis. The U.S. hemp industry is expected to produce well over $1 billion in revenues in 2018, with a compound annual growth rate of 14 percent through 2022, according to the Hemp Business Journal.

Demand for industrial hemp and products derived from hemp is soaring, with no let-up in sight, which the company sees as a “tremendous opportunity to become a supplier to this fast-growing sector,” said Chairman and CEO Jimmy Chan, who is also an advisor and minority shareholder of Hempistry.

Sproutly Canada, Inc. (OTCQB: SRUTF) (CSE: SPR) (FRA: 38G)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Sproutly Canada, Inc. (SRUTF).

Sproutly Canada, Inc. (OTCQB: SRUTF) (TSX.V: SPR) (FRA: 38G) is developing and bringing to market cannabis consumer products with a focus on beverages. The company’s core mission is to become the leading supplier of water-soluble cannabis solutions and bio-natural oils for brands in the emerging cannabis beverage and edibles market.

To make this happen, Sproutly acquired Infusion Biosciences to bring to market a patent-pending Aqueous Phytorecovery Process (APP) technology, a fundamental paradigm shift within the cannabis industry. Replacing traditional water-compatible solutions with true natural water solubility improves the body’s ability to utilize cannabinoids, making the effect of the cannabis almost immediate.

This revolutionary process doesn’t alter the cannabis compounds and provides an onset time and offset time that mimics the same effects as inhaled marijuana. That means consumers may feel effects in five minutes or less and be free from the desired effect in approximately 90 minutes—a vastly different ingestion pattern than current methods. In addition, the water-based cannabinoids can be mixed with other liquids and stay dissolved in those liquids. The application of water-soluble cannabis infusions has potential to be widespread in both medicinal and recreational cannabis sectors, giving Sproutly a distinctive edge in a market with untapped potential.

Sproutly’s business model is focused on processing rather than cultivating, which means its success is not constrained to growing its own cannabis. The company does own a Toronto-based, ACMPR-licensed facility designed and built with a focus on cultivating pharmaceutical-grade cannabis to produce and formulate the first natural, truly water-soluble cannabis solution. Its water-soluble ingredients and bio-natural oils will deliver revolutionary brands to international markets that are searching for well-defined commercial products.

Sproutly’s entrance in the cannabis market is perfectly timed as cannabis is moving towards mainstream acceptance. Potential users are, however, interested in consuming cannabis products as drinks and using it as oils rather than smoking. The potential cannabis beverage market is staggering, and with Sproutly owning the exclusive rights to APP technology in Canada, Australia, Jamaica, Israel and the entire European Union, the company is looking at significant international expansion opportunities.

Sproutly plans to capitalize on these international opportunities by executing on partnerships with local and globally established consumer brands to leverage their existing customer bases, expand brand loyalty, and assist with marketing and support distribution networks to deliver scientific breakthroughs with speed and efficiency?worldwide.

Management

Sproutly believes that talent drives growth. The company is committed to bringing together the best and brightest minds in the cannabis space to help with their mission to disrupt the global beverage and consumables market.

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

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

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 $0.1285, up 16.82%, on 341,620 volume with 54 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 230,285 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.099/$1.58.
