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

A recent legal opinion has challenged the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s (“DEA”) stance, suggesting that international treaties related to drugs should not hinder cannabis rescheduling as recommended by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (“HHS”). According to the opinion, doing so would be more in line with the country’s duties under international legislation to regulate marijuana in a manner that safeguards public safety and health.

Prepared by lawyers from Vicente LLP and Porter Wright LLP firms, the opinion aims to counter the DEA’s assertion in 2016, when it denied a previous request for a cannabis rescheduling. At the time, the agency maintained that cannabis could not be classified under a less stringent schedule than Schedule II because of international drug agreements.

The legal paper contends, however, that these treaties give countries enough latitude to create drug laws that put national welfare and health first, even if doing so means ending prohibition.

The Coalition for Cannabis Scheduling Reform, an advocacy group and association representing various marijuana-related groups and businesses, commissioned the paper, which has been shared among members and in private with key government figures.

While concerns have previously been raised by individuals such as Representative Andy Harris regarding treaty obligations, noting potential violations of the Single Convention of 1961, a group of senators has highlighted revisions to global marijuana scheduling laws, citing countries such as Canada, which have legalized and regulated cannabis without repercussions. The writers point to Canada and Uruguay in support of their reading that international drug treaties broadly support regulating drugs for safety, research and medical applications. Further, they note that the DEA has in the past rescheduled a cannabis-based medication, Epidiolex, after it received FDA approval, showing that there has been precedent for changing the categorization of cannabis.

The opinion not only refutes the notion that drug treaties forbid cannabis reclassification, but it also emphasizes the member nations’ latitude in upholding treaties even when doing so contradicts their internal constitutions.

This becomes especially important in the case of the adult-use cannabis markets that are already operating and have been approved by state legislation. The opinion argues that closing state markets on treaty grounds would violate states’ fundamental constitutional rights and highlights the existence of treaty exceptions when constitutional constraints are in effect. Moreover, the opinion underscores the legal discrepancy between the final rule and final order in DEA rescheduling proceedings, suggesting that treaty obligations could enable the agency to bypass the rulemaking process.

The legal opinion above could help shape the final decision that the DEA makes, although industry actors such as Cronos Group Inc. (NASDAQ: CRON) (TSX: CRON) are only awaiting a communication from the federal agency so that they can assess how their strategic plans could evolve based on the changed regulatory climate in the United States.

Cronos Group Inc. (CRON), closed Monday's trading session at $2.24, up 0.44843%, on 1,590,447 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 440,742 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $1.64/$2.64.

TerrAscend Corp. (TSNDF)

QualityStocks, InvestorPlace and Cabot Wealth reported earlier on TerrAscend Corp. (TSNDF), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Earlier this month, the Nevada Cannabis Control Board announced that it had awarded its first marijuana consumption lounge license. This announcement comes after the board approved a handful of these licenses over the last couple months.

The first to receive a lounge license was Thrive Cannabis Marketplace. Mitch Britten, CEO and managing partner of Thrive, stated that the company was honored to be at the forefront of the marijuana industry in Nevada through the official launch of the first regulated marijuana lounge in the state.

Britten revealed that the company had created a unique destination for marijuana enthusiasts to enjoy an assorted range of premium products in an engaging atmosphere. The lounge, dubbed Smoke and Mirrors, will provide a curated selection of premium marijuana products, including infused beverages.

It is important to keep in mind that alcohol will not be offered on the premises in accordance with state law. The compliance board also issued a statement about the company, noting that it was the first lounge that was inspected by its agents and adhered to the stipulated regulations.

A conditional license was issued to Thrive in June of last year. The zoning commission from Clark County then issued the company a special use permit in September. The lounge was then inspected in February of this year, which enabled Thrive to obtain its operation license.

In addition, the Nevada Cannabis Control Board revealed that 19 lounges had received approval for conditional licenses thus far. Of this number, five are independently situated and 14 are attached to dispensaries. The first independently located consumption lounge to receive a license was LA Lounge LLC.

Thrive’s lounge will operate in what was once a strip club and may be launched by the end of February, if all goes well.

Tyler Klimas, former executive director of the cannabis control board, recently discussed marijuana consumption lounges on a Weed Wonks podcast. He talked about how this was an unknown space and noted that many businesses would be launched in the near future.

The other consumption lounge that received a conditional license, Planet 13, issued a statement on a possible date for its launch. Larry Scheffler, Planet 13 co-CEO, stated that the company’s objective was to create an extraordinary space for marijuana connoisseurs, novices, locals and tourists to enjoy marijuana while experiencing world-class entertainment. The Planet 13 lounge will have bong chandeliers, VIP booths and marijuana cocktails.

The third conditional license was granted to SoL Cannabis.

The launch of these consumption lounges is likely to be watched closely by cannabis companies such as TerrAscend Corp. (TSX: TSND) (OTCQX: TSNDF) since their success is likely to be copied in other jurisdictions where legal sales of adult-use marijuana exist.

TerrAscend Corp. (TSNDF), closed Monday's trading session at $1.77, off by 3.2787%, on 537,028 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 111.141M and the stock's 52-week low/high is $1.29/$2.45.

Data from the European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA) has revealed that drivers in the European Union registered 92,741 battery electric vehicles (BEVs)  last month. The share of BEVs in Europe increased from 9.5% in January 2023 to 10.9% last January, representing a year-over-year increase of 28.9%.

However, an influx of cheaper electric cars into the EU has caused consumer interest in EVs to spike in recent months. Belgium was the largest market for battery-electric vehicles followed by the Netherlands, France and Germany. These four markets cumulatively accounted for 66% of electric vehicle sales in the European Union.

The United Kingdom and EFTA nations (Norway, Switzerland and Iceland) saw their electric vehicle sales increase by 29.3% year-over-year and cumulatively sold 102,926 BEV units. BEV sales in EFTA nations alone increased from 4,273 units last January to 7,250 units last month (69.7% year-over-year increase). ACEA data also shows that plug-in hybrids and hybrids were popular as well.

Hybrids ranked as the second-most preferred vehicle choice among car buyers in the European Union, with 245,068 registrations in January. Automakers sold 21.4% more hybrids and 24.4% more plug-in hybrids last month compared to January 2023. However, hybrid EV sales in BAFTA nations went down by 4.4% in January 2023 compared to last January while plug-in hybrid sales in the UK increased by 14.7%.

Despite increased consumer interest in BEVs, hybrids and plug-in hybrids, internal combustion engines (ICE) still hold the lion’s share of the vehicle market. Petrol and diesel-powered vehicles accounted for 35.2% and 13.4% of total vehicle sales, followed by hybrids at 28.8%, battery electric vehicles at 10.9% and plug-in hybrids at 7.8%.

As a testament to the EU’s progress in electric vehicle adoption, 8.7% of all the vehicles sold in January had some kind of plug. Most European nations have pledged to incorporate battery electric vehicles into their transportation sectors to help combat climate change.

Transport is currently one of the largest polluters on the planet and accounts for at least one-third of global greenhouse-gas emissions. Replacing internal combustion engines with electric powertrains and eliminating fossil fuel use in vehicular transportation can help cut tailpipe emissions to zero.

Although the modern electric vehicle industry is more than a decade old, EV adoption has been slow for most of the industry’s existence due to high prices. Falling production costs and advancements in EV battery technology are now contributing to lower EV prices and helping to alleviate range anxiety.

This growth in EV sales in Europe is likely to have boosted the sales of brands such as Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) that have made a mark internationally.

Adobe has unveiled an artificial intelligence assistant that can search PDFs, produce summaries and answer questions about a user’s PDF documents. The computer software company launched the AI assistant in its Acrobat applications and reader, and is planning to release a subscription plan for the tool once it is past beta testing.

Unlike other AI models, such as ChatGPT, which need users to upload a PDF document before providing an analysis, the AI assistant from Adobe will be built into its reader and applications. A news release said the AI assistant is currently available on Acrobat and noted that Adobe Reader’s built-in AI assistant would gain additional features over the next days and weeks.

According to Adobe, the artificial intelligence-powered assistant can help Adobe users digest information from lengthy PDF documents by creating brief content overviews. The AI assistant can answer user questions about a PDF document’s information via a “conversational interface” and suggest questions related to the document. Adobe says its new AI assistant can help users create citations that allow users to prove the authenticity of the answers the chatbot provides.

The chatbot can also create clickable links to help users jump directly to certain parts of massive documents and access specific information. It can also generate text for formats such as reports, presentations and emails, the news release said.

Adobe Systems CEO Shantanu Narayen said in a recent interview that the new AI tool represents the software company’s goal of “democratizing access” to the trillions of PDF documents that are currently in use globally.

Described as a conversational engine, the tool can recommend more content based on what users are currently reading. It essentially allows Adobe users to “chat with documents” and learn what they need from long documents that would typically require much more time to summarize.

Adobe’s plan for the chatbox is to minimize the time-consuming tasks involved with working with large documents such as studying for research projects or creating highlights from massive reports to use in presentations, meetings and emails. The AI assistant can summarize and answer questions from all the document formats Adobe Reader supports, including PowerPoint and Word. Once it is launched, the AI assistant can also analyze a document’s content and consolidate it into formatted and digestible copy for reports, and presentations.

The AI assistant is currently available to Standard Adobe customers for $12.99 per month, Pro customers for $19.99 per month, and Teams subscription plans on both web and desktop.

Adobe’s announcement of AI that can search and summarize PDFs shows only a small glimpse of the ways in which major tech companies such as Intel Corp. (NASDAQ: INTC) are working to bring the disruptive powers of AI to every aspect of life as we know it.

Indonesia is set to surpass its 2023 sales after forecasted shipments for January and February 2024 soared by almost 25% in comparison to the same months in 2023. The country, which is the largest exporter of thermal coal globally, is expected to record more than 90 million metric tons of thermal and thermal bituminous coal sales in the first two months of this year.

Last year, total exports from Indonesia surpassed 504 million tons. This has many expecting that exports this year will go even higher. The top markets for Indonesian coal thus far include China, the Philippines, South Korea, Japan and India. These countries were also major importers of coal in 2023.

With regard to volume, China imported more than 29 million tons in February 2024, representing a 9% drop in total imports recorded over the same period last year.

This may not be complete information though. Based on tracking data, more than 21 million tons of cargo do not show a confirmed final destination on the manifests. Most of these ships are probably heading to China, given the country is the biggest consumer of coal. However, this cannot be confirmed until the current break ends.

India’s coal imports for this month also passed 13 million tons, making this its highest quantity imported since February 2020. In total, India imported almost 101 million tons of Indonesian coal in 2023.  Data also shows that exports to Malaysia, South Korea, Japan and the Philippines dropped in comparison to January and February 2023. However, it is expected that once ship manifests are updated, increases in volumes may be recorded.

One driver of coal demand in the aforementioned countries will be the economy of China rebounding from the plunge recorded in 2022. A persisting debt crisis has stifled the heavy industry and construction sectors in China. In an effort to revive growth, Beijing is planning to announce new measures in March at its next parliamentary meeting.

If the measures are successfully implemented, the use of energy and industrial activity will increase in China as well as other regions of Asia as product and material suppliers up production. Vietnam’s use of coal and industrial activity is also expected to increase if the economic growth of China improves.

The recovery of China’s construction industry is also expected to increase demand for construction parts and materials throughout the supply chain, which pours into Vietnam in form of steel and cement plants.

As the coal exports from Indonesia show, the world may still need coal producers such as Peabody Energy Corporation (NYSE: BTU) for longer than advocates for transitioning away from fossil fuels would wish. Setting up sufficient and reliable renewable energy sources is proving to be harder than initially thought.

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

Leading cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase Global Inc. (NASDAQ: COIN) has made a decision to discontinue its support for Unspent Transaction Output (UTXO) and native Bitcoin from its merchant platform, Coinbase Commerce. For years, Coinbase Commerce has been a go-to choice for merchants interested in accepting payments in various cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin. The platform has provided merchants with user-friendly tools such as hosted checkout, eCommerce options, payment buttons and invoicing via its API.

Coinbase head of product Lauren Dowling announced the decision on X on Feb. 18, 2024, noting that the move was prompted by difficulties faced while trying to integrate new updates into the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) payment system for Bitcoin.

The revamped Coinbase Commerce aims to offer enhanced blockchain transparency for each payment, supporting a broader range of assets, including ERC-20 and native tokens. Furthermore, payments will be instantly converted to USDC at a rate that is guaranteed for merchants. The lack of stablecoins and smart contracts on the Bitcoin blockchain presented serious difficulties, which resulted in the withdrawal of support for Bitcoin and UTXO coins.

However, Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong reassured Bitcoin users that they could still utilize the platform provided they had an account with Coinbase. He also expressed optimism about Coinbase’s current integration of the Lightning Network (LN), which seeks to expedite and reduce the costs of transactions on the blockchain, potentially enhancing commerce payments in the future.

Additionally, Armstrong outlined an expansive vision for crypto payments, highlighting the necessity to move away from the blockchain’s base layer to alleviate confirmation times and transaction costs, a critical first step for the widespread acceptance of cryptocurrency payments over the internet. Bitcoin’s UTXO model places greater emphasis on security and transparency than ether’s account-based structure, which provides more flexibility similar to typical banking operations. The UTXO mechanism is also used by other Bitcoin-derived cryptocurrencies, including BitcoinCash, Dash, Litecoin and Dogecoin.

The decision made by Coinbase has sparked discussion among both crypto enthusiasts and critics. Some worry about how it will affect the uptake of Bitcoin, pointing out that it assumes that all users are able or willing to register a Coinbase account and are based in the United States. They compare it to requiring users to bank with a certain financial institution to make payments.

The recent announcement comes soon after Coinbase released its quarterly report, which showed that transaction revenue had increased significantly by 64% to $529.3 million in the last quarter of 2023.

Coinbase Global Inc. (COIN), closed Monday's trading session at $193.94, up 16.8454%, on 22,593,709 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 55,995 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $46.43/$196.95.

The QualityStocks Company Corner


The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight GEMXX Corp. (OTC: GEMZ) .

Las Vegas-based mine-to-jewelry maker GEMXX Corporation is reporting a 600 percent YOY jump in product delivery values for the month of January

The company produces iridescent Ammolite jewelry that it obtains from its own gem mines in Alberta and gold mines in British Columbia, controlling each step in its production chain with no long-term debt

GEMXX entered the gold market during the past year, enjoying the precious metal's stability and record prices amid outside economic fluctuations

GEMXX is working to improve its valuation, anticipating S-K 1300 technical reports on four assets will further improve the company's balance sheet

North American mining and jewelry-making company GEMXX (OTC: GEMZ) is reporting the latest evidence that last year's gamble on the gold market has paid off, bringing the mine-to-market enterprise a remarkable 600 percent YOY increase in the value of its product deliveries.

GEMXX Corp. (OTC: GEMZ) is a mine-to-market enterprise specializing in gold, gemstone, and jewelry production. With ownership of mining resources, production facilities, and operational assets, the company maintains control over every aspect of its production process, from gold mining and gemstone extraction to jewelry manufacturing and global distribution.

As a prominent player in the industry, GEMXX stands out as a leading producer of high-quality finished Ammolite jewelry. Notably, it holds the distinction of being the sole public company engaged in Ammolite mining worldwide. In addition to its Ammolite operations, the company is actively involved in gold mining and prides itself on its ability to design and manufacture exquisite jewelry pieces and exceptionally rare, natural fossil decor items for clientele around the globe.

One of GEMXX’s key advantages lies in mining its own gold reserves to be utilized in its jewelry production. This strategic approach provides the company with a cost-saving edge over other producers in the market.

Ammolite is similar to black opal and is a biogenic gem like amber and pearl. It is derived from the fossilized shells of ammonites, a group of extinct marine nautiluses.

GEMXX’s world class gemstone cutters and jewelry designers are continuously leading the Ammolite industry. Its team believes in the company’s philosophy, vision and goals, and works every day to continue to drive the Ammolite industry to the forefront of the gem world.

The company has offices in Las Vegas and Hong Kong.

Projects and Operations

GEMXX has formulated an ambitious growth plan that, while challenging, is deemed attainable. The company’s strategy revolves around bolstering its market share through several key initiatives. Firstly, GEMXX aims to strengthen its position in current markets by nurturing and expanding existing relationships with customers and partners.

Secondly, the company plans to venture into untapped markets strategically. By identifying and targeting new areas, GEMXX seeks to establish a presence in regions that present promising opportunities for growth.

Additionally, GEMXX envisions growth through acquisitions. By considering and integrating key services, distribution networks and retail outlets into its fold, the company aims to consolidate its market position and capitalize on synergies for enhanced success.

To cater to the rising demand for its products, GEMXX has placed a primary focus on increasing gemstone production. The company’s southern properties, situated in Alberta, Canada, hold valuable deposits of rough Ammolite gemstone. By tapping into these resources, GEMXX is poised to meet the demand for its exquisite gemstone products and further fuel its expansion plans.


GEMXX possesses significant mineral assets in the form of a Mineral Work Permit covering an 800-acre area and two Ammonite Shell Mineral agreements encompassing 217 acres within the same region. The company’s management effectively operated mines in close proximity to these properties. Moreover, core sampling, along with fossil outcroppings on the riverbanks, confirms a substantial Ammolite resource present in these designated areas.

Both the Mineral Work Permit and the Ammonite Shell Mineral agreements grant GEMXX unrestricted access to all Ammolite resources within their respective demarcations. Notably, the company is not obligated to pay any royalties to third parties, thereby enabling GEMXX to fully capitalize on the potential of these valuable resources.

Furthermore, there are no stringent regulatory conditions that GEMXX must fulfill to gain or retain access to the Ammolite deposits. This freedom of access allows the company to proceed with its mining and production operations unimpeded, providing an advantageous position for future growth and success.

In March 2023, GEMXX made a significant announcement, revealing its acquisition of a 50% ownership stake in Crazy Horse Mining Inc., a Canadian gold mining company with assets situated in the province of British Columbia. As part of this deal, Crazy Horse’s assets, which encompass a 100% interest in two gold projects, called Snow Creek and Rosella Creek, spread across a substantial area exceeding 700 acres, now become part of GEMXX’s portfolio.

Under the terms of this strategic partnership, GEMXX and Crazy Horse will jointly share the expenses related to mining operations on these projects. Additionally, the two companies will share the gold produced from these ventures, leading to a collaborative and mutually beneficial arrangement.

Initial tests conducted on the property, combined with gold already recovered this season, confirm all expectations for the claims and substantiate the company’s estimated extraction target of over 100,000 ounces of easily recoverable gold. To validate and provide a more comprehensive assessment of this estimate, an S-K 1300-compliant Resource Report is scheduled to be conducted during the summer of 2023.

By acquiring this stake in Crazy Horse Mining Inc., GEMXX has positioned itself for further growth in the gold mining sector and is poised to capitalize on cost of goods savings in its jewelry business.

Mullen Automotive Inc. (NASDAQ: MULN)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Mullen Automotive Inc. (MULN).

Mullen Automotive (NASDAQ: MULN), an emerging electric vehicle ("EV") manufacturer, is reporting on its continued focus on the commercial vehicle segment with production and deliveries of its Class 1 and Class 3 commercial EVs. According to the announcement, the company is in full commercial production of the Class 1 and Class 3 EV vehicles while subsidiary Bollinger Motors is focused on Class 4–6 vehicles; production of the Class 4 EV is set to begin in the second half of 2024. In addition, Mullen saw positive gross margin per Class 1 and Class 3 vehicles invoiced. The company also noted that it is integrating advance battery solutions and artificial intelligence ("AI")-driven battery management systems. "Strategically, in 2022 we understood EV adoption in the commercial sector would occur faster and doubled down on our acquisition efforts with both the majority acquisition of Bollinger Motors and the purchase of Electric Last Mile Solutions assets, which included full ownership of a large automotive manufacturing facility in Mishawaka, Indiana," said Mullen Automotive CEO and chair David Michery in the press release. "These acquisitions allowed us to scale faster, which is best demonstrated by the launch of commercial vehicle production and customer deliveries in 2023. Mullen's effort will be matched when Bollinger begins Class 4 production launch, which is planned later in 2024. Our effort on the commercial segment is laser focused, and the opportunity has never been better with increased demand seen across all our commercial vehicle offerings."

Green-energy project delays in the United Kingdom have left many worried about the nation's ability to transition to cleaner energy sources in time to meet emission reduction targets. While the UK is no longer part of the European Union, it still shares the region's goal of transitioning from fossil fuels such as coal and oil to cleaner alternatives to cut greenhouse gas emissions and combat climate change. Solar and wind energy will undoubtedly play a major role in this transition, with solar energy at the forefront of the UK's clean-energy transition. Energy company National Grid is also set to publish a national transmission plan that would see the construction of power lines connecting offshore windfarms with urbanized regions. Tom Glover, chair of utility company RWE Generation SE, says the renewables-energy market is currently experiencing a supply squeeze as most governments turned to renewables after the pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war. Even so, Glover says there is little risk of encountering significant power production shortfalls because the UK can simply extend the lifetimes of operational gas plants. As the UK grapples to accelerate its efforts to go green, entities such as Mullen Automotive Inc. (NASDAQ: MULN) are pressing ahead with their plans to gain market share for their EVs not only in North America but in international markets as well. It would be a shame if these zero-emissions vehicles have to be powered up by electricity from nonsustainable sources.

Mullen Automotive Inc. (NASDAQ: MULN) is a Southern California-based automotive company that owns and partners with several synergistic businesses working toward the unified goal of creating clean and scalable energy solutions. Mullen has evolved over the past decade in sync with consumers and technology trends. Today, the company is working diligently to provide exciting EV options built entirely in the United States and made to fit perfectly into the American consumer’s life. Mullen strives to make EVs more accessible than ever by building an end-to-end ecosystem that takes care of all aspects of EV ownership.

Commencement of Trading on Nasdaq

On November 5, 2021, Mullen announced its commencement of trading on the Nasdaq Capital Market.

“Today is a monumental day for Mullen Automotive. I am especially proud of our team, investors and all who have believed in Mullen and taken us to this point as a publicly traded company on the Nasdaq Capital Market,” David Michery, CEO and Chairman of Mullen Automotive, stated in the news release. “Trading on Nasdaq now opens us up to new investors, both institutional and retail shareholders, and broadens our awareness and company profile, while increasing awareness of Mullen and our technology platform and opening new opportunities in EV and beyond. The road ahead has never been brighter for Mullen, and I am proud to lead us into the future.”

The milestone came in the wake of the company’s stock-for-stock merger with Net Element Inc.

The Mullen FIVE

The Mullen FIVE EV Crossover, debuting at the Los Angeles International Auto Show (LAIAS) on November 17, 2021, embodies Mullen’s Southern California roots with an inspired design focused on two complementary Golden State themes – California landscape and California urban.

CNS Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: CNSP)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight CNS Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: CNSP).

Figures show that brain cancer occurs in less than 1% of the population in America. At least one-third of individuals diagnosed with primary brain cancer tumors survive for at least five years. Those with glioblastoma, a common type of brain cancer, have about a 14% chance of living an additional five years. This is dependent on the age of diagnosis, however. While what causes brain cancer is still unknown, scientists theorize that exposure to ionized radiation may be linked to this illness. Now, new research has found that veterans who experience head injuries have a heightened risk of developing brain cancer. The research was carried out by investigators at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences; the University of Texas San Antonio; the Bethesda, a medical college based in Maryland; and Duke University, among others. The high prevalence of brain cancers within the military community creates an added urgency upon companies such as CNS Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: CNSP) that are working to develop better treatments for central nervous system malignancies.

CNS Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: CNSP) is a clinical stage biotechnology company specializing in the development of novel treatments for primary and metastatic cancers of the brain and central nervous system.

The company was founded in 2017 and is headquartered in Houston, Texas.

Organ Targeted Therapeutics

The company’s lead drug candidate, Berubicin, is proposed for the treatment of glioblastoma multiforme (“GBM”), an aggressive and incurable form of brain cancer. Berubicin also has potential to treat other central nervous system malignancies. Based on limited clinical data, Berubicin appears to be the first anthracycline to cross the blood brain barrier in the adult brain, and it was the subject of a successful Phase 1 study which found the MDT and produced efficacy data as well.

CNS holds a worldwide exclusive license to the Berubicin chemical compound. The company has acquired all requisite data and know-how from Reata Pharmaceuticals Inc. related to a completed Phase I clinical trial of Berubicin in malignant brain tumors. In this trial, 44% of patients experienced a statistically significant improvement in clinical benefit. In 2017, CNS entered into a collaboration and asset purchase agreement with Reata.

CNS intends to explore the potential of Berubicin to treat other diseases, including pancreatic and ovarian cancers and lymphoma. The company is also examining plans to develop combination therapies that include Berubicin.

CNS estimates that more than $25 million in private capital and grants were invested in Berubicin prior to the company’s $9.8 million IPO in November 2019.

CNS intends to submit an IND for Berubicin during the fourth quarter of 2020 and expects to commence a Phase II clinical trial of Berubicin for the treatment of GBM in the U.S. in Q1 2021. A sub-licensee partner was awarded a $6 million EU/Polish National Center for Research and Development grant to undertake a Phase II trial of Berubicin in adults and a first-ever Phase I trial in pediatric GBM patients in Poland in 2021.

The company’s second drug candidate, WP1244, is a novel DNA binding agent licensed from the MD Anderson Cancer Center. In preclinical studies, WP1244 proved to be 500-times more potent than the chemotherapeutic agent, daunorubicin, in inhibiting tumor cell proliferation. The company has entered into a sponsored research agreement with the MD Anderson Cancer Center to further the development of WP1244.

CNS Pharmaceuticals recently engaged U.S.-based Pharmaceutics International Inc. and Italian BSP Pharmaceuticals SpA for the production of the Berubicin drug product. The company has implemented a dual-track manufacturing strategy to mitigate COVID-19-related risks, diversify its supply chain and provide for localized availability of Berubicin. CNS has already completed synthesis of Berubicin’s active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) and has shipped the API to both manufacturers in order to prepare an injectable form of Berubicin for clinical use.

Global Brain Tumor Therapeutics Market

The high recurrence rate of malignant brain tumors is due to reappearance of focal masses, indicating that a sub-population of tumor cells in these cancers may be insensitive to current therapies and may be responsible for reinitiating tumor growth. This necessitates the development of newer drugs in the market that demonstrate greater efficacy in treating such aggressive cancers.

A global increase in neurological disorders has placed increased attention on cancers of the brain over the past decade. Neurological disorders are becoming one of the most prevalent types of disorders, due to longer life expectancy, greater exposure to infection and an increasingly sedentary lifestyle. Because few treatments for primary and metastatic cancers of the brain exist, costs are high and have acted as a restraint for the brain tumor therapeutics market.

Despite progress in surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapeutic strategies, effective treatments for brain cancer are limited by a lack of specific therapies for the brain and the difficulty in transporting therapeutic compounds across the blood brain barrier. Therefore, there is a significant need for novel and effective therapeutic drugs and strategies that prolong survival and improve quality of life for brain tumor patients.

Several companies are making significant investments into R&D, which is expected to bring more treatment options to the market in the near future. Industry reports consistently project continued growth in the market.

One report estimates that the global brain tumor therapeutics market will reach a valuation of $2.74 billion in 2023, with the market expected to register a CAGR of 11% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2023. Another report projects that the global brain tumor therapeutics market will reach $3.4 billion by 2025, up from $2.25 billion in 2019 (

Prospera Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PEI) (FRA: OF6B) (OTC: GXRFF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Prospera Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PEI) (OTC: GXRFF) .

Elon Musk says large-money funds such as Fidelity and BlackRock are forcing environmental, social and corporate governance ("ESG") considerations on investors against their best interests. Corporations have spent the past several years increasingly incorporating ESG considerations into their business plans partly due to money funds such as Vanguard and BlackRock that typically use ESG-based investment strategies. BlackRock is famous for emphasizing the importance of climate-change impact in its investment decision, and it even offers several ESG-focused funds. Fidelity also incorporates ESG considerations into its investment decisions alongside a suite of ESG products, while Vanguard has corporate goals aimed at cutting carbon emissions as well as a range of actively managed and index funds. He noted that the complex relationship between capital owners and asset managers could complicate Musk's potential lawsuit but added that the financial sector's structure makes it susceptible to corruption. Without going into the merits and demerits of the claims that Musk is making about ESG implementation, it is clear that a number of companies, such as Prospera Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PEI) (OTC: GXRFF) (FRA: OF6B), see that implementing environmental, social and governance principles has the potential to improve their bottom lines and are pressing ahead with the same.

Prospera Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PEI) (OTC: GXRFF) (FRA: OF6B) is a public oil and gas exploration, exploitation and development company focusing on conventional oil and gas reservoirs in Western Canada. The company uses its experience to develop, acquire and drill assets with potential for primary and secondary recovery.

Prospera is primarily focused on optimizing hydrocarbon recovery from legacy fields through environmentally safe and efficient reservoir development methods and production practices. It is in the midst of a three-stage restructuring process aimed at prioritizing cost effective operations while appreciating production capacity and reducing liabilities.

The company is based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.


Prospera’s core properties include more than 42,000 cumulative acres across Cuthbert, Luseland and Heart Hills in Saskatchewan and Red Earth and Pouce Coupe in Alberta. In total, the company estimates that there are half a billion barrels of oil in place at these sites accounting for 20+ years of forward project lifespan, with as little as 8% of total reserves having been recovered via legacy vertical well technology.

Restructuring Initiative

In 2021, Prospera enacted a top-down reorganization. The early results of these efforts were on display in May 2023, when the company reported a three-fold year-over-year increase in annual revenue for 2022 alongside drastically reduced operating costs and record-high cash flow from operations.

Prospera noted in the news release that it has positioned itself in 2023 to execute the second phase of its development plan aimed at increasing production through medium-oil development in Alberta and leveraging horizontal wells to capture the significant remaining reserves in Saskatchewan.

During the company’s investor summit in August 2023, Prospera CEO Samuel David provided more information regarding this three-phase strategy:

Phase I

Prospera completed the first phase of its restructuring by optimizing operations at its existing assets and addressing legacy arrears and non-compliance issues.

At the beginning of this transformation, the company was producing just 80 barrels of oil equivalent (BOE) per day. In Q4 of last year, Prospera peaked at nearly 1,200 BOE per day. Its breakeven is around 500 barrels per day, illustrating the opportunity for free cash flow. This prospect has driven Prospera’s capital development and optimization in recent quarters.

After a temporary slowdown in production due to harsh winter conditions, Prospera is currently producing about 800 BOE per day and anticipates an additional 300-500 barrels of daily production following the completion of ongoing site maintenance work.

This sustained increase has pushed the company’s NPV from roughly $3 million prior to the restructuring efforts to approximately $72 million today.

In an effort to build on this progress and maximize its available resources, Prospera piloted two horizontal reentries to assess a potential horizontal well transformation at its properties.

Phase II

Following up on the optimization efforts of Phase I, Prospera aims to commence a horizontal well transformation at its properties in the coming months. Based on its pilot wells from Phase I, the company has proposed 10 horizontal well locations at its Cuthbert and Heart Hills properties.

Prospera has likewise proposed eight medium light oil direction wells at its Alberta property, and it is exploring strategic acquisitions aimed at expanding its core area and diversifying its product mix.

Other facets of Phase II include piloting an enhanced oil recovery (EOR) application and continuing to execute its liability management goals and ESG initiatives. Prospera has already abandoned 60 vertical wells as part of its three-year LMR plan to reclaim surface land and reduce the environmental footprint of its operations.

Phase III

Beginning next year, Phase III of Prospera’s corporate redevelopment strategy will focus on continuing the company’s horizontal modular development to appreciate production and optimize recovery of remaining reserves. Prospera intends to implement full-scale EOR applications based on the results of its Phase II pilot program, which is forecast to optimize recovery by greater than 10%.

Prospera also intends to continue its acquisition strategy to diversify its product mix. Its goal, as detailed by in August 2023 investor summit, is to attain 50% light oil, 40% heavy oil and 10% gas – all while continuing to eliminate carbon emissions as part of its existing ESG initiatives.

Poised for Growth

Following its transformational efforts in 2022, Prospera is poised to achieve record growth in 2023. The company has forecast significant reductions in production costs through 2024, alongside sizable increases in daily production.

Prospera is currently exploring strategic acquisition targets to potentially increase its production beyond 5,000 BPD while expanding its reserve base to a billion barrels.

Market Opportunity

While the oil and gas industry faces long-term geopolitical and macroeconomic uncertainty, there is a clear trend to secure supply in the short term. According to Deloitte, the global upstream industry ended 2022 with some of the highest free cash flows on record, driving reinvestment in hydrocarbons and overall investment in clean energy.

The Energy Information Administration recently forecast a dip in global oil inventories over each of the next five quarters, placing upward pressure on oil prices. The agency further forecasts a YoY increase in fuel consumption, exacerbating the effects of OPEC+ production cuts that are set to remain in place through 2024.

For Prospera, these forecasts are promising. The company aims to build on its recent financial growth in the coming months (Prospera reported a three-fold YoY increase in revenue to $13.9 million in 2022), hitting a projected $57 million in total revenue by the end of 2024 while working to expand its core area holdings through accretive M&A transactions.

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.

In early 2021, the Company announced an exciting new greenfield gold discovery at its Oko West project in Guyana, where, after 22 months of resource definition drilling, the Company has announced an initial Mineral Resource Estimate (MRE) containing 2.475 Moz of gold in Indicated resources at 1.84 g/t and 1.762 Moz of gold in inferred resources at 2.02 g/t contained within a pit shell outline. Preliminary metallurgy results performed by the company, consisting of 8 bottle roll tests obtained strong results, averaging just under 90% recoveries on average. The Company is continuing with additional development activities at Oko West, including environmental base line studies and additional metallurgical work relating to the delivery of a PEA by year end 2023. In addition, Reunion Gold is currently exploring several priority targets in the Oko West project area on which the company feels there is good potential to add additional resource ounces. This includes the opportunity to grow the initial mineral resource estimate (MRE) released on June 13, 2023, and to discover additional gold ounces at Oko West outside of the resource area.

The Guiana Shield remains one of the most prospective exploration locations globally for the discovery of world class orogenic gold deposits. The shield, including both Guyana and Surinam, contain large relatively underexplored greenstone belts, from which Reunion Gold expects many more significant gold discoveries could emerge in the coming years.

Oko West Project

Reunion Gold’s Oko West Project is a brand-new gold discovery in northwest Guyana located within the historical Oko gold district. Alluvial gold has been mined from the Oko district since the turn of the century, but very little primary gold has been mined or even explored for to the best of the company’s knowledge. The project comprises a prospecting license with an area of approximately 44 square kilometers and is 100% held by Reunion’s Guyanese subsidiary.

In 2020, Reunion Gold’s geochemical survey, trenching and initial 1000 m drill program discovered and confirmed the presence of gold mineralization in this Orogenic gold system. The gold occurs in the eastern edge of the project area, along a 6km long sheared contact between a granitoid intrusion and a meta volcanic-meta sedimentary rock package. The MRE is located within the Kairuni zone, which represents the northern most 1.9 km of the 6 km long contact.

“We are advancing our Oko West project along two tracks. The first is to advance the exploration programs outside of the Kairuni zone, aimed at outlining and discovering additional gold mineralization within our Prospecting License. On this front, I am very excited by the results from the initial Scout RC Geochem drill program that is defining new targets west of our Kairuni zone,” Rick Howes, President and CEO of Reunion Gold, stated in a recent news release. In addition to the targets west of the Kairuni zone, the company has also commenced exploration work on the southern ~ 4 km of the same sheared contact that hosts the Kairuni zone MRE. In addition, the company feels that the MRE marks the size of the Kairuni resource at a point in time and that there is good potential to continue to grow the resource. The MRE remains open at depth below the resource pit outline in the block 4 area and also to depth and along strike in the block 5 and 6 areas. In addition to the exploration programs, the second strategic track is to rapidly advance the Kairuni zone along the path to development. To that end the company is moving forward with the engineering and other studies, including more detailed metallurgical studies, that will support the release a PEA on the Kairuni zone by year end 2023 The company feels that the rapid advancement of development of Kairuni zone MRE, while in parallel continuing to explore for additional ounces on the project, is the best path to try and maximize shareholder value in the shortest period of time.


Guyana boasts a long history of mining gold, bauxite, diamonds and manganese. Still, the greenstone belts of the Guiana Shield remain relatively unexplored when compared to the analogous regions of the West African Shield (Birimian), which, according to geological evidence, was once connected to the Guiana Shield, forming a contiguous craton prior to the Mesozoic period.

Despite a historical lack of accessibility and low exploration intensity, several significant large-scale projects have emerged in the Guiana Shield, including Aurora, Oko West, Oko Main, Toroparu and Omai. Guyana is English speaking with a British based parliamentary and legal system and boasts the world’s fastest growing economy on the back of significant offshore oil discoveries by Exxon and its partners. It is expected that a significant amount of the revenues from oil production will be invested in improving the infrastructure, education and health care and agriculture within the country.

Market Opportunity

The World Gold Council, an industry association representing gold producers with hundreds of mining operations in nearly 50 countries around the world, called 2022 the “strongest year for gold demand in over a decade.” Annual gold demand jumped 18% YoY due to “colossal central bank purchases, aided by vigorous retail investor buying and slower ETF outflows.”

Despite this spike in demand, total annual gold supply increased by just 2% in 2022, halting two years of successive declines but failing to challenge 2018 highs. This supply-demand imbalance could provide a favorable market environment as Reunion Gold continues to advance drilling programs at its 100%-owned Oko West Project.

Management Team

Successful exploration and the discovery of significant deposits in any given region require immense amounts of local knowledge and experience. This is the principle around which Reunion Gold has built its management team. In total, the company’s leadership boasts over 225 years of combined experience in the Guiana Shield.

The company’s ASRs have assisted in the arrest of suspects involved in crimes ranging from armed robbery to hit-and-runs. Their machine-embedded thermal scanning capability even aided in preventing the breakout of a major fire. You can learn more about the crime fighting wins at

The company has achieved several milestones since its creation in 2013, including:

  • Establishing itself in a 15,000-square-foot facility located in Mountain View, California, in the heart of Silicon Valley, where Knightscope designs, engineers and builds its technology (Made in the USA)
  • Operating for more than 1 million hours in the field and securing contracts across five time zones, from Hawaii to Rhode Island
  • Raising over $100 million since inception to build its technology from scratch and generating over $13 million in lifetime revenue, validating both the market opportunity and the technology

Growth Capital & Proposed Nasdaq Listing

With backing from more than 28,000 investors and four major corporations and over $100 million raised since inception, Knightscope is poised to be an industry leader in the future of public safety and security.

On December 1, 2021, Knightscope announced the commencement of an offering of up to $40 million of its Class A common stock, with shares to be listed immediately following closing on the Nasdaq Global Market under the ticker symbol ‘KSCP’. The offering is for up to 4 million shares priced at $10 per share. Learn more at

Company Mission – Reimagining Public Safety

Knightscope’s long-term vision has an eye on the greater good. The company’s mission is to make the United States of America the safest nation in the world while supporting the 2+ million law enforcement and security professionals across the country.

Crime has an estimated negative economic impact in excess of $2 trillion annually. As crime is reduced, positive impacts will likely be realized across several aspects of society, including housing, financial markets, insurance, municipal budgets, local business and safety in general.

Knightscope CEO William Santana Li was interviewed by Kevin O’Leary, more commonly known as Shark Tank’s Mr. Wonderful. When asked to explain how the benefits provided by the ASRs outrank a human doing the same job, Li said, “First, just the simple presence of a physical deterrent causes criminal behavior to change. Second, the machines are self-driving cars that patrol all around and recharge themselves. They also generate 90 terabytes of data per year. No human would ever be able to process that. The robots are intended to be eyes and ears for the humans, not a one-to-one replacement.”

The Knightscope solution to reduce crime combines the physical presence of ASRs, sometimes referred to as proprietary Autonomous Data Machines, with real-time onsite data collection and analysis. The ASRs are fitted with eye-level 360° cameras, thermal scanning, public address announcements and various other features that work in tandem with humans to provide law enforcement officers and security guards unprecedented situational awareness.

Those 90 terabytes of data are then formatted in a useable way, so law enforcement can leverage that information and execute their responsibilities more effectively.

Public Safety Innovation

The company’s recurring revenue business model is set up to mimic the recurring societal problem of crime, and it takes into consideration the fact that innovation in the security and public safety industry has been stagnant for decades. Because the traditional practices of the sector have remained unchanged for years, automation has potential to drive substantial cost savings – and significant improvement in capabilities.

Human security guards are one of both the largest expenses and the largest liabilities for companies. Knightscope’s robots are offered at an effective price of $3 to $9 per hour, compared with approximately $85 for an armed off-duty law enforcement officer and $15 to $35 for an unarmed security guard.

This innovation has the potential to drive considerable cost savings. Based on these estimates, manufacturing costs can be recovered as soon as the first year of operation.

Product Offerings

The company has nine patents and a framework of unique intellectual property. Knightscope currently offers a K1 stationary machine, a K3 indoor machine and a K5 outdoor machine. A K7 multi-terrain four-wheel version is in development.

The ASRs autonomously patrol client sites without the need for remote control, providing a visible, force multiplying, physical security presence to help protect assets, monitor changes in the area and deter crime. The data is accessible through the Knightscope Security Operations Center (KSOC), an intuitive, browser-based interface that enables security professionals to review events generated by the ASRs providing effectively ‘mobile smart eyes and ears’. Learn more at

The ASRs and the related technologies were developed ground up by the company and are Made in the USA.

The Robot Roadshow

Knightscope has created the ultimate hybrid physical and virtual event, bringing its Autonomous Security Robot technologies to cities across the country for interactive and in-person demonstrations.

Each roadshow landing is hosted virtually by a Knightscope expert, and visitors can interact directly with each of the company’s ASRs and see the Knightscope Security Operations Center (KSOC) user interface in action. Learn more at

Market Outlook

Fr8Tech’s established foothold in Mexico is key to its current efforts to promote sustainable growth in the cross-border shipping industry. Ongoing disruption in U.S.-Chinese trade relations have strengthened Mexico’s status as the largest trading partner of the U.S., with cross-border annual freight spending estimated at $385 billion according to data from the U.S. Department of Transportation. Annual domestic shipping in Mexico is estimated at $34 billion, while annual domestic shipping in the U.S. is estimated to total $732 billion.

Despite the size of this industry, fragmentation and inefficiencies prevail in the space. Thousands of legacy brokers, tens of thousands of shippers and hundreds of thousands of carriers still rely on outdated systems to arrange transport, spending hours on the phone negotiating pricing, waiting days to find trucks and drivers, preparing and printing forms, and operating without tracking or visibility. Add in cross-border complexity relating to customs and additional paperwork, and you have an industry ripe for technological disruption.

Fr8Tech’s recent revenue growth trends have highlighted the company’s efforts to capitalize on this opportunity. In 2021, Fr8Tech achieved revenues of $21.5 million, marking a year-over-year increase of 134%. The company issued revenue guidance for fiscal 2022 of $40 million in a February 9, 2022, press release, which would account for a further 86% year-over-year increase.

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 Ltd. (TSX.V: ELO) (OTCQX: ELRRF) is a publicly traded exploration and mine development company with a portfolio of gold and base-metal properties in Bolivia, Peru and Quebec.

The company has an option to acquire a 99% interest in the highly prospective Iska Iska Property, classified as a silver-tin polymetallic epithermal-porphyry complex, a significant mineral deposit type in the Potosi Department of southern Bolivia. Iska Iska is a road-accessible, royalty-free property.

Eloro also owns an 82% interest in the La Victoria Gold/Silver Project, located in the North-Central Mineral Belt of Peru, some 50 kilometers south of Barrick’s Lagunas Norte Gold Mine and Pan American Silver’s La Arena Gold Mine. La Victoria consists of eight mining concessions and eight mining claims encompassing approximately 89 square kilometers. La Victoria has good infrastructure, with access to road, water and electricity, and is located at an altitude that ranges from 3,150 meters to 4,400 meters above sea level.

The company has a strong management and technical team working diligently to uncover the value of both Iska Iska and La Victoria. Eloro is based in Toronto, Canada.


Iska Iska – Potosi, Bolivia

Iska Iska is associated with a Miocene possibly collapsed/resurgent caldera, emplaced on Ordovician age rocks with major breccia pipes, dacitic domes and hydrothermal breccias. The property is wholly controlled by the title holder, Empresa Minera Villegas S.R.L. It is located 48 kilometers north of Tupiza city, in the Sud Chichas Province of the Department of Potosi. This is an important mineral deposit type in the prolific South Mineral Belt of Bolivia. Eloro commissioned a NI 43-101 Technical Report on Iska Iska, which was completed by Micon International Limited and is available on Eloro’s website and under its filings on SEDAR.

A fully financed drill program is currently underway on the property, situated near world-class deposits including Silver Sand, San Bartolomé, Pulacayo, San Cristobal, San Vicente, Chorolque, Tasna, Choroma and Siete Suyos. Iska Iska is in the southwest part of the Eastern Cordillera, which hosts a number of major polymetallic mines and mineral deposits. Drilling and continuous channel sampling results have demonstrated some very high metal values, especially silver and tin, within an immense system, where mineralization has been encountered in every drill hole to date. The company believes there is excellent potential for world-class bulk mineable deposits.

La Victoria – Ancash, Peru

The La Victoria project, targeting gold and silver production, is situated near world-class, low-cost gold producers Pan American Silver and Barrick Gold Corporation. Located in Ancash Department, La Victoria sits on the western slopes of the Peruvian Andes. The property is located 12 hours from Lima, with a travel distance of 600 kilometers. The nearest road accessible population centers from La Victoria are Huandoval, Pallasca and Cabana. The project includes four principal mineralized zones in Peru’s prolific North-Central Mineral Belt – San Markito, Victoria, Victoria South and Ccori Orcco – with excellent potential for gold discovery. 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.

Mountain Top Properties Inc. (OTC: MTPP)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Mountain Top Properties Inc. (OTC: MTPP).

Mountain Top Properties Inc. (OTC: MTPP) is a diversified real estate holding company that acquires, sells and operates assets through its wholly owned subsidiaries and limited partnerships. The company specializes in property management, property technology (“PropTech”) and real estate redevelopment.

Mountain Top Properties was incorporated in 1990 and is based in Liverpool, New York, with offices in Sag Harbor, New York.


The company’s flagship subsidiary is Mountain Top Realty Inc., the managing partner of its first real estate fund focused on residential redevelopment in the prestigious and storied Hamptons, New York, beachfront communities.

Mountain Top Properties is also the lead investor in blockchain-enabled industrial and warehouse flex space HQXpress, which services the warehousing, reverse logistics and liquidation markets.

The company is in negotiations for the addition of AI-powered technologies that promise to simplify real estate services, including purchasing and sales.

Mountain Top Capital Fund I LLC

Mountain Top Capital Fund I LLC is a New York limited liability company recently organized by affiliates of Mountain Top Realty, manager of the fund. Through this fund, Mountain Top Realty will leverage the company’s experience, market conditions and industry relationships to capitalize on real estate projects as they arise.

This partnership will be focused on waterfront or water view properties in the Hamptons. The Hamptons market has historically remained strong and continues to set new highs year over year.

The fund has partnered with On Site Builder Construction Co. Inc., which is managed by Joseph Kelley, who, for over 40 years, has continued to build the highest quality architecturally designed custom houses, varying in style from classic to ultra-modern, in the Hamptons. Several houses he has built are showcased in books and magazines and featured across various forms of digital and social media. His assembled team of skilled subcontractors are among the finest skilled craftsmen in their various fields of expertise.

Mr. Kelley has built over 60 custom homes in this market and has the unique distinction of building the most expensive house sold in Sag Harbor in 2014, which sold for $31,750,000; the most expensive house in the Hamptons in 2019, which first sold for $27,500,000 in 2017 and later was renovated and re-traded for $39,250,000; and the most expensive house sold in the Hamptons in 2022, which sold with the neighboring house for $118,500,000. Mr. Kelley’s portfolio of projects is valued at over $400,000,000. Although he has historically worked as a custom home builder, he would like to shift from providing a service to now providing a finished product in this market.

Market Opportunity

Mountain Top Capital Fund I has a target to raise $75 million to acquire, renovate and remarket Hamptons waterfront or water view properties. The fund has secured debt capital commitments for 70% of the acquisition costs and 100% of the construction costs and will use $10 million to leverage strategic waterfront opportunities in and around the Hamptons.

Profits from each project will be distributed upon the sale of the project, which is anticipated every 15 to 18 months, with a target of a minimum return on investment of 20% to 30% per transaction.

The company anticipates the fund’s Hamptons projects will be followed up by several other funds targeting additional high-end markets.
