Trulieve Cannabis Corp. (TCNNF)

InvestorPlace, QualityStocks, MarketBeat, Wealth Insider Alert, Daily Trade Alert, Top Pros' Top Picks, Cabot Wealth, The Street, Trades Of The Day, Profit Trends, TradersPro, The Online Investor and StreetInsider reported earlier on Trulieve Cannabis Corp. (TCNNF), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

A survey from The Ohio State University (OSU) has found that a majority of active armed services personnel and retired veterans, as well as their families, believe Veteran Administration (VA) doctors should be allowed to recommend psychedelics and medical marijuana to patients who stand to benefit from these treatments.

OSU researchers surveyed active-duty military personnel, veterans, their families, and even nonmilitary respondents from late August to early September 2023 on their thoughts about making medical marijuana and psychedelics accessible as treatment options. The 1,168 participants surveyed for the poll included 315 active as well as retired members of the military, 426 individuals from military families, plus 427 people outside the military.

Researchers say that due to the huge caseload of health problems in the veteran society plus the necessity of a variety of treatment alternatives for retired military service members, some scientists are exploring if and how veterans should access alternative treatments such as cannabis and psychedelics.

Medical marijuana has been around for more than two decades and is now legal in dozens of states across the United States. Several studies have found that the controversial plant has numerous potential health benefits and can help alleviate the symptoms of conditions that typically affect veterans, including anxiety disorders and chronic pain. However, VA doctors aren’t technically allowed to recommend medical marijuana to their patients because they are limited to prescribing medications that are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for medical use.

Study authors also noted that studies on veteran issues rarely explore how veterans’ perspectives on specific drug issues in relation to the views held by individuals within their immediate plus broader communities.

The recent study drew its participants from the volunteer American Population Panel and asked those participants whether they were in agreement with a quartet of statements regarding cannabis and psychedelics. The last statement said that VA doctors should be able to recommend both marijuana and psychedelics if they believe their patients could benefit from them due to the “unique hardships and health conditions” veterans experience.

The majority of all the three groups surveyed said both drugs can be efficacious therapies. Even more stated that VA physicians should be permitted to recommend them to patients who may benefit. Additionally, all groups supported the idea that VA doctors shouldn’t need the FDA’s approval to recommend either psychedelics or cannabis.

The results of this survey underscores what the broader cannabis industry, including leading entities such as Trulieve Cannabis Corp. (CSE: TRUL) (OTCQX: TCNNF) have always believed,  that marijuana could benefit in one way or the other nearly every section of the population that is struggling with health issues.

Trulieve Cannabis Corp. (TCNNF), closed Thursday's trading session at $5.5675, up 1.0436%, on 235,488 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 641,143 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $3.42/$7.80.

Seelos Therapeutics Inc. (SEEL)

QualityStocks, MarketBeat, StockEarnings, StockMarketWatch, MarketClub Analysis, TradersPro, Schaeffer's, BUYINS.NET, Trades Of The Day, Prism MarketView and INO Market Report reported earlier on Seelos Therapeutics Inc. (SEEL), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Last week, the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) issued a request for applications to carry out in-depth studies on the use of psychedelic substances in the treatment of depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The VA revealed that it was the first time since the 1960s that the agency would be funding psychedelic research, adding that it intends to collect definitive scientific evidence of the potential safety and effectiveness of psychedelic compounds such as psilocybin and MDMA.

When administered together with psychotherapy, these compounds may help treat veterans with depression and PTSD.

The department also highlighted in its press release that researchers were focused on supporting innovations that would deliver the best care to veterans. It then noted that exploring the effectiveness of new and promising treatments that could improve the quality of life and health of veterans was an important step.

The in-depth research to be conducted will permit the VA to directly evaluate the effectiveness and safety of these treatments.

Representatives Lou Correa and Jack Bergman, who cofounded the Congressional Psychedelics Advancing Therapies (PATH) Caucus, noted that this milestone by the VA was a huge development. Correa stated that this was the first step toward tackling the national mental health crisis head-on, noting that these treatments held the promise of being the biggest breakthroughs in mental-health treatment in nearly five decades.

Bergman also pledged to continue fighting for the advancement of promising treatments that could save the lives of countless veterans.

The VA’s announcement was also applauded by Representative Morgan Luttrell, who publicly admitted to using psychedelics to help treat a traumatic brain injury in the past. In an emailed release, Luttrell noted that this was great news for veterans, made possible by the House Committee on Veterans Affairs’ commitment to finding new solutions for veterans and Secretary McDonough. While discussing his own treatment with 5-MeO-DMT and ibogaine, Luttrell noted that it changed his life.

In 2023, Luttrell advocated for the inclusion of psychedelics research provisions in a federal defense bill that was signed into law by President Joseph Biden in December.

The VA then noted that the expansion of psychedelics research for veterans was in line with calls from veterans service organizations such as Disabled American Veterans and American Legion, as well as other groups that provide mental-health services.

Steps toward expanded access are also supported by military members, the general public, a huge majority of family members of veterans and veterans themselves. Recent figures show that about 64% of active military respondents and veterans supported permitting VA doctors to legally recommend psychedelics to veterans if they believed it could benefit the patient.

The news that the VA is seeking to fund research into the potential benefits of treating health complications prevalent in the veteran community could be music to the ears of startups such as Seelos Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: SEEL) because it shows how seriously major governmental entities are looking at psychedelics.

Seelos Therapeutics Inc. (SEEL), closed Thursday's trading session at $1.63, off by 0.609756%, on 333,222 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 6.924M and the stock's 52-week low/high is $1.04/$49.80.

(WKHS), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

The U.S. Treasury has revealed that more than 20 electric cars will lose eligibility for the tax credits maxing out at $7,500 in 2024 after new EV battery-sourcing regulations take effect. Issued by the Treasury in early December 2023, the new guidelines exempt EVs with battery materials sourced from China from federal electric vehicle tax credits.

With the United States and other western nations scrambling to cut their reliance on the Chinese EV battery supply chain, these new rules are meant to encourage domestic production of electric vehicle batteries. According to the treasury, the guidelines will lock out EV models such as the Tesla Cybertruck All-Wheel Drive, Chevrolet Blazer E, and the Nissan Leaf.

Some Tesla Model 3s, the Ford E-Transit, the BMW X5 xDrive50e, the Cadillac Lyriq, the Audi Q5 PHEV 55 and Volkswagen ID.4 also lost eligibility for EV tax credits. Although Tesla did not comment on the newly effective guidelines, a statement on Tesla’s website noted that the Cybertruck is “likely to qualify for the federal tax credit later in 2024.”

Volkswagen said that it was currently working to confirm eligibility for federal tax credits. It said it was optimistic that all its MY2024 ID.4s plus the MY2023 ID.4s would be eligible for electric vehicle tax credits per these new rules. BMW didn’t release an immediate comment while Nissan said that it is working with supply chain partners to meet the requirements outlined by the new rules and regain tax credit qualification for the Leaf.

The treasury says that American automakers are now modifying supply chains in order to wean themselves off of Chinese companies by partnering with local suppliers and bringing investments and jobs back to the United States. In the meantime, however, some of the EV models will not be eligible for federal tax credits until their supply chains meet the new guidelines.

Consequently, the number of electric cars that qualify for federal EV tax credits has fallen from 43 to 19. The treasury notes that the list is still in flux because some car manufacturers still haven’t submitted information on eligible electric cars. Per the guidelines, EV buyers can also claim the electric vehicle tax credit of up to $7,500 at the point of sale in a participating dealership.

Before this change, buyers would pay full price and then wait to be refunded via a tax credit. While this system undoubtedly aided in accelerating EV adoption, it limited EV ownership to individuals who could afford to wait until tax season for their EV credit to kick in.

Manufacturers such as Workhorse Group Inc. (NASDAQ: WKHS) and other startups in the industry may need to clarify to their customers regarding their eligibility for part of or the entire available federal EV tax credits.

Workhorse Group Inc. (WKHS), closed Thursday's trading session at $0.3206, up 1.7132%, on 6,179,462 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 7.402M and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.306/$2.60.

(ACB), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) has asserted its ultimate authority in determining the scheduling of cannabis, regardless of the recommendations made by the U.S. Health and Human Services. Michael Miller, the DEA acting chief of the Office of Congressional Affairs, communicated this stance in a letter addressed to Representative Earl Blumenauer, cochair of the Congressional Marijuana Caucus.

The scheduling review process, initiated by President Joseph Biden in October 2022, commenced with a scientific assessment from the HHS. The assessment purportedly advised the DEA to reclassify cannabis from Schedule I to Schedule III of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). After HHS provided its recommendation in August, the DEA proceeded with its independent review.

The DEA’s response was prompted by an earlier letter from 31 bipartisan legislators, led by Blumenauer, urging the DEA to consider the merits of legalization during the review. The lawmakers expressed concern about the limitations of placing marijuana in Schedule III rather than completely removing it from CSA control. They emphasized the urgency of full descheduling and criticized the outdated scheduling of cannabis, which they deemed incongruent with the public’s sentiment.

In its reply, the DEA refrained from addressing the lawmakers’ arguments and focused on the procedural details of the scheduling review. The timeline for completing the review remains undisclosed, though speculation suggests a conclusion before the November election.

The Congressional Research Service (CRS) suggested that, based on past precedent, the DEA would likely follow HHS’s recommendation. However, the DEA reiterated its final jurisdiction over the CSA, retaining the authority to disregard HHS advice.

Despite the controversy surrounding the rescheduling review, little is known about HHS’s justification for recommending Schedule III. The agency submitted extensive documents to the DEA, but those documents have been released in highly redacted form, offering scant insight into the health agency’s findings on medical benefits, addictive potential or other policy aspects.

The DEA has received input from various stakeholders, including 29 former U.S. attorneys, urging the preservation of Schedule I. Six governors and former DEA heads voiced opposition to HHS’s recommendation, highlighting the complexity of the marijuana policy debate.

Lawmakers and advocates supporting marijuana reform marked the one-year anniversary of Biden’s cannabis pardon and scheduling directive by urging further action. Two GOP senators introduced legislation to prevent federal agencies from rescheduling cannabis without congressional approval.

Simultaneously, a coalition of 14 GOP legislators urged the DEA to reject HHS’s recommendation and maintain the strictest categorization for cannabis under the CSA.

Actors in the marijuana space, such as Aurora Cannabis Inc. (NASDAQ: ACB) (TSX: ACB), are eagerly waiting for the decision that the DEA will make on cannabis classification under the CSA.

Eloro Resources Ltd. (TSX.V: ELO) (OTCQX: ELRRF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Eloro Resources Ltd. (TSX.V: ELO) (OTCQX: ELRRF).

Eloro Resources (TSX.V: ELO) (OTCQX: ELRRF) (FSE: P2QM), a leading exploration and mine development company, is reporting on the final assay results for the last six diamond drill holes in its 11-hole definition drill program on the Iska Iska project. A silver-tin polymetallic project, Iska Iska is situated in the Potosi Department of southwestern Bolivia. Highlights of the report indicate that Hole DSB-66 returned well mineralized intersections; Hole DSB-65 showed a very high-grade sample indicating the potential for Iska Iska to host extraordinary grades within the overall extensive mineralized system; and Hole DSB-63, the eastern most hole in the definition drill program, intersected a significant tin ("Sn") intersection. Overall, the company noted that the definition drill program has expanded both the higher-grade Sn and silver ("Ag") zones, specifically to the west where limited drilling had taken place previously. The announced noted drilling results have shown upgraded tin and silver values from near surface down to at least 500 meters in vertical extent, with geophysical information and deep drilling indicating that tin-silver mineralization may extend to depths of 1 kilometer or more.

"I am very pleased with the continuation of significantly higher-grade silver equivalent results from the latest definition drilling program, compared to the initial mineral resource estimate (‘MRE') starter pit area model as previously reported," said Eloro Resources CEO Tom Larsen in the press release. "These new results highlight the potential to upgrade and expand the higher-grade resource in the Santa Barbara starter pit area. . . . Tin is proving to be an important metal contributor to these upgraded silver equivalent results. This can enhance NSR values and increase tonnage in future MRE studies. There is more and more evidence of high temperature sulphidation centers being identified as feeders within the open pit area resulting in upgraded tin and silver values. Higher density definition drilling in the initial Santa Barbara open pit envelope is consistently proving up higher grades as drill density is improved."

Operations at La Victoria are planned to proceed with a 2,000-meter diamond drilling program to test targets to outline potential resources at San Markito. Trenching and sampling confirmed high silver values and veins at San Markito in 2020.

Market Outlook

According to industry association The Silver Institute, the outlook for silver demand is exceptionally promising, with global demand forecast to rise to a record high of 1.112 billion ounces in 2022. The increase will be driven by record silver industrial fabrication, which is forecast to improve by 5%, as silver’s use expands primarily in solar energy and electric vehicle (EV) manufacturing. The institute states that government commitments to carbon neutrality have resulted in a rapid expansion of green energy projects, driving record photovoltaic panel installations which are expected to lift silver demand in this segment to an all-time high in 2022.

Rising demand in the electronics industry is also boosting the demand for tin, which is primarily used in solder. The electronics and electrical industries use solders containing 40-70% tin, which provide strong and reliable joints under a variety of environmental conditions. At present, the majority of the assemblers are using patented tin-and-copper-based solders. Mordor Intelligence estimated tin demand at 387 kilotons in 2021 and forecasts demand growth of 2.5% annually through 2027. Over the medium term, surging demand from the EV market and increasing applications in the electrical and electronics industry is expected to drive the market.

Appia Rare Earths & Uranium Corp. (CSE: API) (OTCQX: APAAF) is a mineral exploration company focused on exploration activities at its newly acquired Cachoeirinha rare earths project (“PCH Project”) in Brazil, as well as delineating high-grade critical rare earth elements (REE) and gallium at its Alces Lake property in Saskatchewan. Other properties in Appia’s portfolio include its Elliot Lake Property in Ontario’s historic mining camp, with a large NI 43-101 uranium and rare earths resource. Fully funded with over $5 million (CDN) in cash, no debt, aggressive exploration currently underway, and experienced management, Appia is progressing rapidly on multiple fronts in highly desired market sectors.

The company is headquartered in Toronto, Canada.


PCH Project-Brazil

The PCH project hosts REE mineralization in both ionic clays developed from the weathering of alkaline granites and in-situ rare earth mineralization associated with the underlying granite and a carbonatite intrusion to depths greater than 100 meters. Sampling data shows enrichment in rare earth minerals to depths of between eight meters and +30 meters.

In early 2023, Appia announced a definitive agreement to acquire a 70% interest in the PCH Project, which is 17,551 hectares in size and located in the Tocantins Structural Province of the Brasília Fold Belt, Goiás State, Brazil. It is classified as an alkaline intrusive rock occurrence with the potential for highly anomalous REE and Niobium mineralization.

The region around Iporá, a city located roughly 30 km from the PCH Project, has significant mineral exploration and mining activity and well-developed infrastructure.

In July 2023, Appia commenced an aggressive auger and reverse circulation (RC) drill campaign to delineate a potential resource estimate at the PCH project. Initial results at the site revealed significant exploration potential with impressive values that often surpass known ionic clay deposits in Brazil, particularly for the highly valuable heavy rare earths Terbium and Dysprosium.

The auger holes drilled at Target 4 have exhibited a range of total REE grades, ranging from 274 ppm to 16,648 ppm (1.66%), with an average of 1,291 ppm total REE. The valuable rare earths used in magnet applications – praseodymium, neodymium, terbium and dysprosium (Pr, Nd, Tb, and Dy) plus yttrium (Y) accounted for approximately 14% of total rare earths, reaching a maximum of 28.4%. Notably, the deposit also contains anomalous values of niobium and scandium, with average values of 736 ppm for Nb and 62 ppm for scandium in a composite sample from Target 4.

Heavy rare earths (HREEs) show maximum values of 1,624 ppm and average values of 1,291 ppm, primarily as terbium and dysprosium. Light rare earths (LREEs) show maximum values of 14,024 ppm (1.54%) with an average of 1,145 ppm. Neodymium and praseodymium, the main magnetic light rare earths, show respective maximum values of 3,131 ppm (Nd) and 885 ppm (Pr) and average values of 216 ppm (Nd) and 61.7 ppm (Pr). The overall HRRE/LREE ratio has a maximum of 39.5% and an average value of 16.67%.

“Appia is thrilled with the progress made and the promising results thus far,” CEO Tom Drivas stated in a news release. “The company remains committed to advancing its exploration plans, aiming to promptly gather significant data throughout the year, and to work towards estimating a maiden mineral resource in the coming months.”

Alces Lake Project – Saskatchewan

Appia’s Alces Lake project, located in northern Saskatchewan, encompasses some of the highest-grade total and critical REEs and gallium mineralization in the world, hosted within several surface and near-surface monazite occurrences that remain open at depth and along strike.

Following the company’s acquisition of additional new mineral claims in the area in February 2023, Appia’s Alces Lake claim block now totals 38,522 contiguous hectares (95,191 acres) – 100% owned by the Company.

Appia announced the completion of a NI43-101 technical report on the property in June 2023, providing an update on exploration previously reported in March 2021.The report is available on SEDAR under the company’s profile.

Extensive diamond drilling and geophysics surveys are underway to explore a more than 25-kilometer structural corridor. In July 2023, the company issued an update on its diamond drill program having completed the first phase of drilling at the project’s Magnet Ridge Zone to further test the extent of the mineralization to the south south-east (SSE). President Stephen Burega noted the presence of “continued mineralization at significantly thicker intercepts.”

As part of its 2023 exploration program at Alces Lake, Appia plans to target priority areas that extend SSE from the Wilson, Richard, Charles, Bell, Ivan, Dylan, Dante and AMP zones through the Magnet Ridge Zone and beyond, covering an area extending approximately 20 kilometers in length and 5 to 7 km in width. Appia will also undertake reconnaissance drilling on priority regional geological and geophysical targets in the Western Anomaly area.

Other Projects

  • Appia holds a total of 75,314 hectares (186,106 acres) of land on four uranium claim blocks in the prolific Athabasca Basin (Loranger, North Wollaston, Eastside and Otherside). Exploration plans for these properties are expected to be announced once permits are in hand.
  • Appia also has a 100% interest in 12,545 hectares (31,000 acres), with rare earth element and uranium deposits over five mineralized zones, in the Elliot Lake Camp, Ontario.

Market Opportunity

A report from Mordor Intelligence forecasts the global REE market is expected to grow from 168 million tons in 2023 to 206.25 million tons by 2028, marking a CAGR of 4.19% during the forecast period. The market is gradually improving following the economic and production restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Factors driving the market’s growth include high demand from emerging economies and the dependency of environmentally friendly technologies on rare earth elements.

According to UxC, one of the nuclear industry’s leading market research and analysis companies, the uranium market is rapidly becoming production-driven, where spot and long-term prices more closely correlate to the marginal cost of uranium production.

Although global reactor requirements are projected to be flat through 2024, UxC forecasts that significant demand growth from 2025 to 2040 will necessitate new production as resources are exhausted at several uranium projects. In addition, a large percentage of production exists in regions of the world with high geopolitical risk, which makes the market vulnerable to future disruptions and price volatility.

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight NextPlat Corp. (NASDAQ: NXPL) (NASDAQ: NXPLW).

TikTok plans to expand its operations in the American e-commerce sector to roughly $17.5 billion this year. TikTok, a product by ByteDance Limited, announced its goal in recent meetings focused on its progress. The achievement of this objective would put TikTok at a better strategic position to acquire an even larger share of the e-commerce market, which is currently held by Inc. Unlike strategies employed by peers such as Shein and Temu, TikTok shop centers blend convenient shopping experiences with online entertainment in the United States. This strategy encourages consumers to make impulse purchases. TikTok hopes to attract more customers while retaining its current ones by leveraging the power of viral content and its social media prowess. As e-commerce claims an increasing share of all commerce conducted around the world, specialized segment operators focusing on healthcare e-commerce, such as NextPlat Corp. (NASDAQ: NXPL) (NASDAQ: NXPLW), could have an edge over generalists that aren't looking to dominate a clearly defined section of the industry.

NextPlat Corp. (NASDAQ: NXPL) (NASDAQ: NXPLW), a next generation e-commerce platform, was created with vision and purpose to capitalize on high growth sectors and global markets. The company collaborates with businesses – large and small – to simplify and accelerate online commerce and uniquely enables customers and partners to optimize their e-commerce reach, presence and revenue.

The company’s current initiatives include:

  • E-Commerce Development Program – In April 2023, NextPlat announced it had entered into a merchant sourcing agreement with Singapore E-Commerce Private Limited (“Alibaba”) and its Tmall Global e-commerce platform whereby the two companies will collaborate to increase the sale of products produced and sold by American companies to the multi-trillion-dollar Chinese consumer market. Alibaba’s Tmall Global e-commerce platform will provide NextPlat customers a turn-key solution through which products can be sold to the Chinese consumer market. The launch of the Florida E-Commerce Development Program is the first in a series of new NextPlat programs designed to assist U.S. businesses in expanding their online sales capabilities to reach new international customers in the Chinese market. NextPlat intends to rapidly expand this unique e-commerce development opportunity to businesses throughout the United States and all of North America, as well as Central and South America. The new development program features NextPlat’s turnkey global e-commerce solution for customers and leverages NextPlat’s relationships with key partners, including Tmall Global, China’s largest cross-border B2C online marketplace.
  • Progressive Care Inc. – In August 2022, NextPlat completed a strategic $7 million investment in Progressive Care Inc. (OTCQB: RXMD), a personalized health care services and technology company.

Fernandez noted that the company is “committed to harnessing the power of digital technologies to capitalize on the ongoing digital transformation of Progressive Care and the entire health care industry.” NextPlat intends to accelerate Progressive Care’s digital health care transformation with the launch of a new e-commerce platform for health care products later this year.
  • NextPlat NFT Platform – Building on its existing e-commerce initiatives, NextPlat is working to bridge the gap between tangible and digital e-commerce marketplaces by incorporating burgeoning Web3 technologies. The company intends to launch a fully integrated NFT platform in the coming months that will enable brands to create, manage and authenticate digital assets while serving as a new source of revenue for NextPlat. Through this model, the company will receive a portion of the revenue generated from branded NFT drops, as well as subsequent secondary market transactions.
  • Global Telesat Communications and Orbital SatCom Corp. – Targeting both domestic and international markets, NextPlat’s subsidiaries leverage partnerships with major e-commerce platforms such as Amazon, Alibaba, eBay and Walmart to serve a growing base that includes more than 50,000 corporate, governmental and individual customers. In total, the brands market more than 10,000 individual products, with a focus on satellite-based connectivity solutions. In addition to exploring accretive M&A opportunities, NextPlat aims to diversify its range of products and broaden its geographic footprint moving forward in an effort to better capitalize on the tremendous growth potential in the United States, Europe and Asia.

“Our goal for 2023 and beyond is to leverage our improved operational capabilities and enhanced leadership team as we expand our offerings in communications and connectivity into the high-growth health care market where we intend to launch an array of innovative new offerings,” Fernandez said in a March 2023 news release detailing the company’s record top-line performance. “Although there remain supply chain headwinds and the challenge of global inflation, we are confident that we have the right combination of market-tested expertise, technology and partnerships that will enable us to bring the power of e-commerce to more customers, brands and industries in the United States and abroad.”

Market Opportunity

The rapid growth of e-commerce over the last decade is expected to continue for the foreseeable future. According to data published by Forbes, roughly 20.8% of all retail purchases are expected to take place online in 2023, accounting for total sales of $6.31 trillion worldwide. It total, e-commerce sales are expected to grow by 10.4% YoY in 2023, accounting for a whopping 24% of all retail purchases by 2026.

For NextPlat, existing partnerships in the industry could be key to capitalizing on this growth. The Forbes report indicates that Amazon accounts for roughly 38.7% of e-commerce sales, while sites like Walmart, eBay and Alibaba round out the list of most visited e-commerce websites. Alibaba is especially interesting due to NextPlat’s recent strategic merchant sourcing agreement with Tmall Global. The Chinese market is “mammoth,” as a recent Alizila report noted. The country’s annual online retail sales of physical goods have nearly doubled in the last five years, reaching approximately 13.8 trillion yuan in 2022, which is nearly $2 trillion USD.

The health care portion of the e-commerce market is generating particularly bullish forecasts, bolstered by the continued adoption of the 340B Drug Pricing Program in the U.S., which requires most drug manufacturers to provide outpatient drugs to covered entities at significantly reduced prices. Industry reports suggest that the global health care e-commerce market will expand at a compound annual growth rate of 16.8% from 2022 to 2030, climbing to a value of more than $1.37 trillion by the end of the forecast period.

Ucore Rare Metals Inc. (TSX.V: UCU) (OTCQX: UURAF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Ucore Rare Metals Inc. (TSX.V: UCU) (OTCQX: UURAF).

This year may prove to be an even more volatile year for the rare earth element (REE) supply chain after China announced a ban in late 2023 on the export of technology used to develop rare earth magnets. Although China noted that the REE technology export ban is due to "national security concerns," this may be the latest sign that Beijing is hitting back against U.S.-led bans on the sale of advanced chips to Chinese companies by leveraging its dominance in the global rare earth element sector. The ban will undoubtedly impact the creation of rare earth magnets in foreign markets such as the United States and may result in supply chain issues for sectors such as consumer electronics and even national security that use rare earth element magnets. With North American-based companies such as Ucore Rare Metals Inc. (TSX.V: UCU) (OTCQX: UURAF) stepping up to provide locally sourced supplies of the needed rare earth elements, the grip China has on this industry could gradually loosen.

Ucore Rare Metals Inc. (TSX.V: UCU) (OTCQX: UURAF) is a critical metals (“CM”) separation technology company executing an ESG-centered plan toward establishing a comprehensive North American critical metals supply chain. The company has developed a transformative commercial-ready technology, RapidSX™, for separating and purifying critical metals. Ucore intends to deploy this technology in pursuit of a CM supply chain independent of China for Western original equipment manufacturers (“OEMs”), most notably in the automotive and renewable energy industries.

Ucore’s vision is to become a leading advanced technology company providing best-in-class metal separation products and services to the mining and mineral extraction industry. Its initial focus is on processing heavy and light rare earth elements (“REEs”), disrupting a supply chain that is dominated by China.

China currently controls about 80% of the world’s access to REE mining projects and over 90% of the world’s REE processing capabilities, and it produces about 95% of the goods containing REE components.


Ucore is working to scale Western supply needs by establishing REE separation and rare earth oxide (“REO”) production capabilities in cooperation with strategic upstream supply and downstream offtake partnerships. The company, along with its industry partners, aims to unlock access to Western REEs for current consumer, energy, manufacturing and military sectors.

By 2025, Ucore expects to commercially separate U.S.-friendly sources of REEs and supply OEMs with REOs required to produce rare earth permanent magnets (“REPMs”) – the essential component of electric motors and generators required to support the world’s transition to electrification and sustainable energy sources.

The company intends to contribute to this initiative through the near-term development of a heavy and light rare-earth processing facility in Louisiana and subsequent development of Strategic Metals Complexes (SMCs) in Alaska and Canada, as well as through the longer-term development of its 100%-owned Heavy Rare Earth Element (HREE) mineral resource property at Bokan Mountain on Prince of Wales Island, Alaska.

Ucore is headquartered in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Projects & Technology

RapidSX™ Demonstration Plant

The Kingston, Ontario, RapidSX™ Demonstration Plant commissioning process is underway. Once commissioned, the plant is designed to demonstrate the commercial capabilities of the RapidSX technology platform.

The RapidSX demo plant will show:

  • The techno-economic advantages of the RapidSX technology platform
  • The processing of tens of tons of heavy and light mixed rare earth element concentrates in a simulated production environment
  • The platform’s ability to operate for thousands of semi-continuous run-time hours
  • Production of high-purity NdPr, praseodymium, neodymium, terbium and dysprosium rare earth elements for early OEM product qualification trials

The demo plant is located within Ucore’s 5,000-square-foot RapidSX Commercialization and Demonstration Facility and is run by its laboratory partner, Kingston Process Metallurgy Inc. (“KPM”).

RapidSX™ Technology

Innovation Metals Corp., acquired by the company in 2020, developed the RapidSX separation technology platform with early-stage assistance from the United States Department of Defense, later resulting in the production of commercial-grade, separated rare earth elements at pilot scale.

RapidSX combines the time-proven chemistry of conventional solvent extraction (SX) with a new column-based platform that significantly reduces time to completion and plant footprint, as well as potentially lowering capital and operating costs. SX is the international REE industry’s standard commercial separation technology and is currently used by all REE producers worldwide for bulk commercial separation of both heavy and light REEs.

Utilizing similar chemistry to conventional SX, RapidSX is not a “new” technology, but it represents a significant improvement on the well-established, well-understood, proven conventional SX separation technology preferred by REE producers.

Strategic Metals Complex

Ucore, engineering partner Mech-Chem Associates Inc. and KPM are developing the full-scale engineering for the company’s first Strategic Metals Complex (SMC). The SMC is a planned REE separation and rare earth oxide production plant slated to commence construction in Louisiana in 2023. It is scheduled to initially process 2,000 tons of total rare earth oxides by the end of 2024, increasing to 5,000 tons in 2026.

The company has three initial U.S.-friendly feedstock agreements in place for the Louisiana complex, along with multiple developing offtake agreements. It received a C$16 million+ incentive package offer from Louisiana Economic Development to support construction of the SMC.

Bokan-Dotson Ridge REE Deposit

Ucore has invested over C$35 million to establish and validate the Bokan-Dotson Ridge resource in preparation for mine design and permitting. Initial drilling is complete, and a Preliminary Economic Assessment has been issued. Next steps for the project include a feasibility study, detailed mine design and permit acquisition. The project can be “near shovel ready” for construction in less than 30 months after receipt of the next stage of development funding.

Market Opportunity

According to a report by Grand View Research, the global rare earth elements market was valued at $2.8 billion in 2018 and is forecast to reach a value of $5.6 billion by 2025, achieving a CAGR of 10.4% during the period. Market growth is driven by increasing demand for these elements in the manufacturing of magnets and catalysts for the automotive industry. Rising demand for electric vehicles to reduce CO2 emissions is expected to propel the use of permanent magnets in the production of EV batteries.

China is the major producer and consumer of REEs. To maintain self-sufficiency and to meet future demand, China has been raising the export tariffs on rare earth elements shipped to various countries, including the U.S., Japan, India, Brazil and the European Union. This led to the current supply-demand gap in these countries, as they rely on imports from China.

China reduced the exports of REEs by 72% in the second half of 2010 to preserve its reserves of these elements and continues to export REEs at reduced levels, thereby affecting industries such as automotive, oil and gas, and electronics, which require an ample amount of rare earth elements.
