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

President Joe Biden has vetoed a measure aimed at overturning a contentious directive from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regarding the accounting practices for companies handling cryptocurrency assets.

In a letter addressed to the House of Reps and published on the White House website, President Biden stressed his administration’s commitment to protecting investors and consumers, stating that appropriate safeguards are essential to leveraging the opportunities and benefits of cryptocurrency innovation.

The measure in question sought to repeal the commission’s staff accounting bulletin, known as SAB 121, which has been a point of contention within the crypto sector. The House had previously passed the now vetoed measure with a 228–182 vote, primarily supported by Republicans but with the backing of 21 Democrats as well. Shortly thereafter, the Senate also approved the measure with a 60–38 vote, including support from several Democrats, notably Chuck Schumer, the Senate majority leader.

For a veto to be overturned, a two-thirds majority vote is required in both the House and Senate. Despite the bipartisan support, Biden had indicated his intention to veto the bill in a prior statement, arguing that restricting the commission’s ability to enforce a robust and effective financial regulatory structure for crypto could lead to significant financial instability and unpredictability in the market.

This isn’t the first instance where Biden has vetoed bipartisan measures. He previously vetoed a resolution aimed at overturning a joint employer regulation, which had also passed both chambers with bipartisan support.

The controversy surrounding SAB 121 stems from its implications for banks and other institutions that custody digital assets. Critics argue that it could hinder banks from safeguarding digital assets as it requires companies that custody crypto to list customer crypto holdings as liabilities on their statements of financial position.

The SEC maintains that the bulletin is just a staff guideline that is not legally binding and is meant to improve investor transparency. Last month, a SEC representative highlighted past failures of crypto companies where customers were left seeking legal recourse through bankruptcy courts; the official emphasized the importance of disclosures that provide a clear understanding of the risks taken by crypto custodians.

Biden’s veto has sparked discontent within the cryptocurrency community, particularly given the speculation that his administration has been making efforts to engage with the industry more positively.

Crypto Council CEO Sheila Warren expressed her disappointment, noting that publicly stated positions can be challenging to retract. Additionally, Representative Mike Flood voiced his frustration on social media, acknowledging the setback but reaffirming his belief in the enduring significance of crypto and digital assets in the future of the U.S.’s financial landscape.

Crypto industry actors such as HIVE Blockchain Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: HIVE) (TSX.V: HIVE) can only hope that Congress takes the initiative and passes legislation to not only oversee the industry but also foster growth so that the enforcement-first approach being taken by the SEC is brought to an end.

HIVE Blockchain Technologies Ltd. (HIVE), closed Wednesday's trading session at $2.85, up 2.518%, on 3,649,233 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 7.156M and the stock's 52-week low/high is $2.18/$6.84.

Could the reclassification of cannabis lead to significant reductions in energy consumption by commercial marijuana cultivators and overall improvement in the industry’s environmental impact?

It’s well-known that indoor marijuana cultivation facilities have a major environmental and energy footprint. This is largely due to the massive electricity consumption required for robust HVAC systems, horticultural lighting, and numerous fans and pumps needed to create optimal growing conditions.

Although the exact details of a post-scheduling cannabis industry in the United States are unknown, we can learn from the controlled-environment agriculture (CEA) industry about potential changes in cannabis growing, such as the adoption of less energy-intensive techniques.

Reclassification could unlock a variety of federal programs that are currently inaccessible to cannabis entities due to federal prohibition.

The Biden administration allocated billions for agricultural and clean-energy projects in 2022 through the Inflation Reduction Act. For instance, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has, through loan guarantees and grants, helped domestic CEA enterprises install efficient and sustainable energy technologies. These include chillers, heat pumps, LED grow lights, clean-power generation and sophisticated HVAC systems.

The program works better for larger institutions due to the significant administrative effort associated with applying for USDA assistance.

Nonetheless, CEA companies of all sizes can obtain support navigating USDA grant and loan applications from a number of federal grant aid organizations. The IRS provides a 30% investment tax credit for marijuana companies that want to install renewable energy sources, such as solar panels, on their property.

Developers of cultivation facilities sometimes point to the high upfront costs as a primary deterrent to the installation of cutting-edge, energy-efficient machinery. Rescheduling could free operators from the restrictions imposed by Section 280E of the IRS, which levies greater taxes on corporations that handle plants than on conventional enterprises. This might free up funds, allowing numerous operators to modernize their spaces for increased energy efficiency.

As of right now, indoor facilities are not subject to any national codes; however, this could change in the future when the International Energy Conservation Code is updated. States that enforce clean-air vehicle requirements, such as California, may, in the meantime, implement more stringent regulations than those established by the federal government.

In the meanwhile, multistate cannabis companies will have to manage a complicated web of regulations.

The potential reclassification of cannabis presents a great opportunity to make the industry more environmentally sustainable. It’s imperative that marijuana businesses keep up with constantly changing federal regulations and proactively implement clean, energy-efficient technology.

Compared to outdoor farms or traditional greenhouses, indoor agriculture requires a lot more electricity per square foot yet permits year-round production regardless of the weather. In the event that cannabis becomes legally transferable across state lines, growers may decide to move from costly indoor models in the north to more affordable outdoor or greenhouse settings in the South and west.

Although this transition could take decades, shifting production to more naturally conducive areas would significantly lessen the industry’s overall environmental footprint.

As the anticipated regulatory change is still very much in flux, entities such as SNDL Inc. (NASDAQ: SNDL) are likely to observe and later decide how best to leverage the changed regulatory landscape in order to further optimize their operations.

SNDL Inc. (SNDL), closed Wednesday's trading session at $2.16, up 2.3697%, on 1,616,276 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 10.363M and the stock's 52-week low/high is $1.25/$2.93.

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

Since its inception in 2012, Coinbase Global Inc. (NASDAQ: COIN) has been a forerunner in the digital asset arena. However, the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the United States is facing a significant trading decline as the crypto market matures, a major blow to investors. Experts allude to this shift in reducing market volatility, which is impacting Coinbase’s main source of revenue.

The digital assets market has undergone several transformations over the years, including direct listing on the NASDAQ in April 2021 and a reduction in the average volatility from 79% in 2021 to 57% in 2024. This reduction is largely due to the introduction of factors such as spot Bitcoin ETFs, which have led to the resurgence of institutional investors in the market.

Consequently, Coinbase’s consumer trading volume plummeted from  $177 billion in the fourth quarter of 2021 to only $56 billion in the first quarter of 2024, putting much pressure on its financial stability. As you know, the company’s business model is centered on transaction fees charged on trades, thus making trading revenues an important part of its financial health.

While the reduction in market volatility is good news for traders and overall market stability, it has resulted in Coinbase facing fewer trading opportunities and low transaction fees. As a way of dealing with the changing market dynamics, the popular cryptocurrency exchange is actively diversifying its revenue streams beyond traditional trading. The company has introduced new products, such as non-fungible tokens (NFTs). In first quarter 2024, Coinbase made one-third of its sales from stablecoin revenue and blockchain services.

What’s more, Coinbase is focusing on global expansion through the Go Broad, Go Deep expansion strategy. The aim is to strengthen the company’s foundation in existing markets and tap into emerging markets with significant growth potential. In fact, the company expanded from being oly in the United States to operating in 38 countries. According to company officials, they believe the company will grow since 80% of the global crypto trading market occurs internationally.

Additionally, Coinbase has expanded its blockchain technological services by offering different kinds of products, tools and services to help businesses and developers. This has helped the company offset most of its losses from trading revenues.

Thus, despite Coinbase’s trading revenue challenges as a result of the maturing crypto market, the company’s future is looking up. With its plan to continue to diversify and become innovative, Coinbase can continue to be a leader in the digital asset space and navigate through the evolving landscape.

Coinbase Global Inc. (COIN), closed Wednesday's trading session at $251.4, up 2.9484%, on 9,383,502 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 12.5M and the stock's 52-week low/high is $46.43/$283.48.

In its latest earnings call, Costco announced that total growth recorded in e-commerce sales in the third quarter was led by silver and gold bullion, appliances and gift cards. Gary Millerchip, the company’s chief financial officer, revealed that they recorded a more than 20% increase in online sales in the last quarter.

The company’s latest earnings exceed Wall Street’s expectations, noting in its statement that their members flocked to their warehouses looking for quality goods at affordable prices.

In December 2023, the company revealed that it was selling gold bars worth more than $100 million in a quarter, noting that sometimes the goods would run out in a few hours.

Investigators at Wells Fargo also estimate that about a month ago, the company may have raked in $100 to $200 million in monthly revenue from the products they launched late last summer. These levels, despite being high, are a drop in the bucket for Costco, which recorded net sales totaling $57 billion in the last quarter.

Analysts believe that margins on the company’s silver and gold offerings are probably low. Despite this, the gold rush represents a sign that consumers regard these precious metals as a safe investment, particularly during uncertain times.

Apex Financial Services’ founder Lee Baker stated that anxiety driven by geopolitical tensions and inflation among other issues was making consumers buy gold out of fear. Baker, who is also AARP Georgia’s president, then noted that this had driven the price of gold to record highs, with the metal hitting $2,450 an ounce last month. This is a significant increase from the $2,100 recorded at the start of March.

Advantages of investing in gold include diversification of one’s portfolio, which can help increase returns while also managing risk in the long run. Additionally, precious metals such as silver and gold are regarded as safe-haven assets that hedge against stock market volatility and inflation. It is important for investors to note that while these metals have various advantages, they also have their disadvantages. For instance, precious metals, unlike other assets, do not produce any cash flow through interest or yields.

Those who would like to purchase these metals should monitor the metal prices regularly in order to know when the time has come to sell them. Furthermore, those who would like to store silver or gold in their homes may incur additional costs. This includes investing in a secure place to store the metals such as a safe, as well as insuring them.

This increasing purchase of gold bars by laypeople bodes well for extraction companies such as Newmont Corporation (NYSE: NEM) since they are assured of growing demand not just from major end-buyers, such as central banks, but also retail chains bringing precious metals closer to consumers.

Newmont Corporation (NEM), closed Wednesday's trading session at $41.1, up 1.4064%, on 6,110,847 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 91.86M and the stock's 52-week low/high is $29.42/$45.92.

Nikola Corporation (NKLA)

Micro-electric vehicles could be the smoking gun that finally breaks the dominance of SUVs (sports utility vehicles) on American roads. Unlike consumers in the European Union, American drivers have repeatedly shown that they prefer larger vehicles, such as SUVs and pickup trucks, over smaller cars, making them less likely to purchase regular-sized electric cars.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) estimates that sports utility vehicles accounted for a whopping 50% of global vehicle sales last year. Demand for SUVs and similar large vehicles is on the rise, and the IEA notes that the transition to “larger and heavier” vehicles is one of the early 21st century’s most-defining automotive trends.

Automakers in the United States began churning out larger cars to circumvent certain emissions standards, and few of them have taken any steps to develop a small electric car in recent years. As a result, American drivers only have access to electric sedans and pickup trucks, with the majority still opting to purchase internal combustion engine (ICE) SUVs.

Established automakers such as Ford have tried to work around this issue by developing larger electric vehicles, including the F-150 Lightning, which fulfill the desire for a large vehicle and produce zero tailpipe emissions. Tesla’s Cybertruck as well as the Rivian R1T are also attempts to attract more Americans to the EV camp with a large electric truck. Unfortunately, the upfront costs involved mean only a small percentage of the American market can afford to purchase an electric pickup truck.

However, tiny electric cars have the potential to bridge the popularity gap between the nascent electric vehicle industry and SUVs. Chinese automakers have already achieved a lot of success with tiny EVs over the past decade, especially in dense Chinese cities where smaller vehicles offer better maneuverability. Smaller electric cars also tend to be cheaper, making them more accessible to consumers with budget constraints.

Challenging SUVs’ dominance in the global market will still prove to be a significant hurdle due to their market popularity and the benefits they offer manufacturers. University of Birmingham professor of business economics David Bailey notes that the popularity of the sports utility vehicle isn’t a fluke but the result of several different factors.

Consumer demand for increased cabin space as well as regulations covering factors such as emissions control systems and airbags have made it more economically feasible for carmakers to develop larger cars. These pressures would ultimately increase the costs involved in manufacturing smaller electric vehicles, the professor states.

It is now incumbent upon other electric vehicle makers such as Nikola Corporation (NASDAQ: NKLA) to come up with smaller EV models that will appeal to consumers who are concerned about the current cost of larger models.

Nikola Corporation (NKLA), closed Wednesday's trading session at $0.5351, up 6.3183%, on 53,257,880 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 7.936M and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.4921/$3.71.

Aurora Cannabis Inc. (ACB)

The use of machine learning in indoor marijuana cultivation facilities is increasing, with growers using advanced cameras and sensors to sound alarms on threats such as disease or pests, decrease labor costs linked to different level growing tasks and maintain optimal conditions for plant growth.

The primary reasons why marijuana and other indoor cultivation companies are making use of artificial intelligence (AI) or machine learning tech in their facilities include the following:

  • Consistency is needed in indoor growing facilities, and artificial intelligence can deliver this.
  • Resources such as energy and labor that are required to cultivate marijuana indoors are costly; consequently, tech powered by AI can help decrease those costs.

At the moment, artificial intelligence for indoor cultivation is almost able to monitor and call attention to invisible things such as changes in growth rate in plants. Once consistency is achieved in the future, artificial intelligence may be able to improve rates of growth.

For 22Red’s Head of cultivation, Stephen Hess, artificial intelligence has eliminated most of the logistical and manual work involved in growing marijuana. This has afforded the Arizona-based marijuana company more time to focus on other tasks while also saving on labor costs.

The company implemented the Spyder technology, developed by Neatleaf, at its facility. The technology is comprised of sensors that track data such as humidity, temperature and leaf color at different times of the day for microclimates or individual plants in the facility. This technology then evaluates data collected to detect signs or patterns of stress and presents its findings on a dashboard, complete with light maps, heat maps and charts, for the company to study.

According to Hess, the technology’s recommendations are more accurate because it makes calculations based on what the system has monitored. Before 22Red used this technology, it had to use handheld sensors to collect the same data. In addition, thousands of dollars in salaries were spent annually for employees who did this work.

Now with this tech, the company only pays $600 in subscription fees to Neatleaf along with another $600 monthly for assessments.

It should be noted, however,  that not all facilities can accommodate this Neatleaf system. Currently, Spyder cannot collect data from areas that are blocked or too low. This includes vertical growing facilities or facilities whose pillars block the sensors.

22Red isn’t the only company making use of advanced technology in their facilities either. Other companies, such as Jushi Holdings, use equipment with machine- learning to control their building-management system. This has allowed the Florida-based company to efficiently gather and analyze data and produce marijuana more sustainably while also decreasing energy costs.

As more AI solutions become available, a time may come when major cannabis companies such as Aurora Cannabis Inc. (NASDAQ: ACB) (TSX: ACB) largely rely on these systems to grow higher-quality marijuana to address the needs of their customers.

Unlike monoclonal antibody therapies, Buntanetap is an orally available small molecule capable of inhibiting multiple neurotoxic proteins at once, positioning it as a comprehensive solution for neurodegenerative diseases.

In a recent Phase II/III Alzheimer’s study, Buntanetap demonstrated statistically significant efficacy. Patients with early AD showed a significantly higher rate of improvement in ADAS-Cog 11 scores across all treatment doses compared to placebo, with a -3.3 point improvement compared to -0.3 for placebo (p < 0.01). Plasma Tau protein levels also reduced, consistent with previous Phase II biomarker data, further validating Buntanetap’s mechanism of action.

Similarly, in the Phase III study of Buntanetap in patients with early Parkinson’s disease, significant advancements were observed. Topline data results are anticipated in June 2024. Preliminary findings indicate promising results in improving cognitive and motor function, underscoring Buntanetap’s potential as a transformative therapy for Parkinson’s disease.

Market Opportunity

The aging population presents a significant market opportunity, with nearly 7 million Americans currently suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), a figure projected to rise to almost 13 million by 2050 (Alzheimer’s Association) (Republican Policy Committee). Additionally, approximately 1.2 million people in the U.S. have Parkinson’s Disease (SingleCare).

The economic burden of Alzheimer’s is immense, with care costs expected to reach $360 billion in 2024 and escalate to nearly $1 trillion annually by 2050. The need for effective, comprehensive treatments like Buntanetap is more critical than ever.

Clene Inc. (NASDAQ: CLNN) is a late clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on improving mitochondrial health and protecting neuronal function to treat neurodegenerative diseases, including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis (MS).

Its lead drug candidate is CNM-Au8®, an oral suspension developed to restore neuronal health and function by increasing energy production and utilization by driving critical cellular energy producing reactions that enable neuroprotection and remyelination to increase neuronal and glial resilience to disease-relevant stressors. CNM-Au8 is being studied in various clinical trials, including the Harvard/MGH Healey ALS Platform clinical trial for patients with ALS; RESCUE-ALS, a completed proof-of-concept clinical trial in patients with early symptomatic ALS; the REPAIR trials, completed target engagement clinical trials showing brain energy metabolite change with CNM-Au8; and a completed MS clinical trial for the treatment of visual pathway deficits in chronic optic neuropathy for remyelination in stable relapsing MS. The company also has a nanotherapeutic platform of drug discovery.


CNM-Au8, Clene’s lead asset, is a highly concentrated aqueous suspension of catalytically active, clean-surfaced, faceted gold nanocrystals. Multiple pathogenic insults contribute to neuronal death. Mitochondrial dysfunction and NAD+ decline is a common final pathway in neurodegeneration, with NAD+ as a critical determinant of cell survival and function. CNM-Au8’s catalytic mechanisms target the energetic deficits, oxidative stress and accumulation of misfolded proteins that are common to many neurodegenerative diseases.

The unique catalytic mechanism of action of CNM-Au8 is hypothesized to act as a neuroprotective and remyelinating therapy in neurodegenerative disease states in order to: (1) drive, support and maintain beneficial metabolic and energetic cellular reactions within diseased, stressed and/or damaged cells, (2) directly catalyze the reduction of harmful, reactive oxygen species (“ROS”) and (3) promote protein homeostasis via activation of the heat shock factor-1 pathway, recognized to dampen the cytotoxicity caused by misfolded and denatured proteins, which are known to occur ubiquitously in neurodegenerative diseases.

CNM-Au8 is used in combination with other agents, has no known drug-drug interactions, and is designed to improve function and survival. The clinical effects of both function and survival were seen in its clinical ALS trials, as earlier announced.

More than 500 estimated years of collective exposure across ALS, MS, and Parkinson’s disease participants in CNM-Au8 clinical trials and Expanded Access Protocol (compassionate use) programs have been recorded without any observed safety signals.

CNM-Au8 is a federally registered trademark of Clene Inc. Clene, based in Salt Lake City, Utah, with R&D and manufacturing operations in Maryland, began in 2013.

Market Opportunity

ALS is the most prevalent adult-onset progressive motor neuron disease, affecting approximately 30,000 people in the U.S. and an estimated 500,000 people worldwide, with a life expectancy of typically three to five years. Clene estimates that global ALS treatment sales will be greater than $1 billion annually within the coming few years. Additional treatments affecting daily function and survival remain the market need.

Additionally, there are more than 2 million MS patients globally, and Clene estimates the market size to be worth more than $23 billion annually. While the MS community has been successful at limiting relapses, non-relapsing MS patients continue to clinically deteriorate even while receiving effective immunomodulatory disease-modifying therapies (“DMTs”). A critical unmet medical need remains for therapeutic interventions that protect neuronal function and myelin health independent of immunomodulation to address progression independent of relapse activity.

Web3 is changing how businesses and consumers interact online. This next internet iteration leverages crypto to break new ground and generate unique global engagement and innovation opportunities. By utilizing crypto, marketing becomes more engaging, transparent and accessible. Web3 incorporates blockchain technology, decentralization and token-based economics. Unlike traditional marketing, the blockchain technology used in Web3 marketing allows for decentralization. Another way Web3 is using crypto is through blockchain-based advertising to ensure transparent and efficient marketing. The decentralized ledger records all transactions securely and transparently. For instance, Brave, an open-source browser, awards users with Basic Attention Tokens (BAT) rewards when they view ads on the platform. So, instead of ignoring ads, they can watch them and get paid for their time. This allows businesses to get real-time feedback on how their business is doing. In this way Web3, through crypto, is transforming how businesses reach more customers. As this approach keeps growing, it is clear that brands will have more opportunities to connect with more people in meaningful ways. Furthermore, the deployment of Web3 technologies by entities such as NextPlat Corp. (NASDAQ: NXPL) (NASDAQ: NXPLW) will further entrench the utility of these technologies and draw even more public attention as the years go by.

Reflex Advanced Materials Corp. (CSE: RFLX) (OTCQB: RFLXF) is a strategic minerals company focused on locating and developing economic properties in the strategic metals and advanced materials space. The company aims to improve domestic specialty mineral infrastructure efficiencies to meet surging national demand from North American manufacturers, effectively positioning itself as one of the only North American suppliers of high purity natural graphite for hi-tech applications.

Reflex Advanced Materials is based in Vancouver, British Columbia. Its project portfolio includes the Ruby Graphite Deposit in Montana and the ZigZag Lithium Property in Ontario.


Ruby Graphite Project

Located in a mining-friendly jurisdiction in southwest Montana, the Ruby Graphite Deposit is a low cost, rapid re-entry opportunity that produced roughly 2,400 tons of graphite from 1902 to 1948. Reflex Advanced Materials holds mining rights for 755 hectares at the Ruby Graphite Project, with 96 federal lode mining claims. Recent samples assay at 95.8% to 98.4% total carbon.

The site is notable as the only combined U.S. graphite flake and vein graphite source. Vein graphite is ideal for energy storage applications, because it requires fewer steps to achieve purity than synthetic alternatives and is therefore far less environmentally damaging. This is expected to play a key role in the project’s development as demand for electric vehicles continues to surge.

In March 2023, the company announced its submittal of permit applications to the Bureau of Land Management in respect of its exploration of the Ruby Graphite Project. Its initial drill program, expected to take place in the summer of 2023, includes plans for 3,500 total meters of drilling, cored to an average depth of 130 meters. The targets for this drill program have been identified using historical data from original mine operations and data gathered for the initial 43-101 technical report on the project, dated January 31, 2023.

ZigZag Lithium Property

Located in the Thunder Bay Mining Division of Ontario, the ZigZag Lithium Property consists of eight mining claims spanning roughly 2,710 hectares. Mineralization at the property, most notably lithium, is based in pegmatite dikes and concentrated in spodumene crystals, which are consistent throughout the entire unit.

Spodumene is readily observable in outcrops and in drill cores, with crystal sizes ranging from 3-15cm, on average.

Reflex Advanced Materials and American Energy Technologies Company Metallurgical Partnership

Reflex Advanced Materials has entered into a material processing agreement with American Energy Technologies Co., which is based in Arlington Heights, Illinois, to conduct metallurgical testwork with the goal of creating a technical support data package for Reflex’s target customer base, U.S. Federal agencies and qualification programs with hi-tech customers in the battery and battery storage business.

The resulting coated, spherionized, purified graphite (CSPG) material that is expected to be created from the aforementioned tests will be used to provide potential customers of CSPG with samples so that they can begin the material qualification process.

Market Opportunity

Graphite is an ideal battery anode and has dominated the market since the proliferation of lithium-ion batteries. Despite this demand, there is currently no significant production of lithium-ion battery anode material in North America.

Instead, most graphite sold in North America today is sourced from Chinese producers. U.S. President Joe Biden highlighted this sourcing disparity in a 2022 address:

“The United Stated depends on unreliable foreign sources for many of the strategic and critical materials necessary for the clean energy transition – such as lithium, nickel, cobalt, graphite and manganese for large-capacity batteries,” he said. “Demand for such materials is projected to increase exponentially as the world transitions to a clean energy economy.”

The U.S. Department of Energy is in the process of awarding $2.8 billion to expand domestic manufacturing of batteries for electric vehicles and combat this foreign dependency. Reflex Advanced Materials has identified its Ruby Graphite Project as a prime candidate for U.S.-sponsored initiatives due to the rarity and scarcity of natural graphite deposits in the country.

Processing graphite domestically in the U.S. is expected to provide Reflex Advanced Materials a competitive advantage as manufacturers begin to seek out American supply in the face of increased diplomatic tension. This is critical, as a rise in anode demand is expected to fuel a shortage of 8 million tonnes of graphite by 2040. World Bank Group projects 494% growth in total graphite demand by 2050.

Leadership Team

Paul Gorman is the CEO and a Director of Reflex Advanced Materials. He brings to the company over 25 years of experience in junior mining finance, public listings, viability assessment and operational rationalization. For 18 years, Mr. Gorman served as president and managing partner of Riverbank Capital, where he played an instrumental role in raising more than $85 million for small-cap companies. In 2008, he funded Industrial Minerals Inc. (later Northern Graphite) and served in an advisory role for four other graphite companies, contributing significantly to the revitalization of the junior graphite space in North America. Mr. Gorman founded Mega Graphite Inc. in 2009 and has served as chief executive for three other companies.

Tasheel Jeerh, CPA, is the company’s CFO. He is a finance and accounting professional with over a decade of experience spanning both public and private sectors. Prior to joining Reflex Advanced Materials, Mr. Jeerh played a pivotal role in the growth of a private upstream oil and gas firm, dealing with over $2 billion in M&A activity and $1 billion in financing activities. He gained his designation at PricewaterhouseCoopers, where he worked as a manager in the assurance practice.

Greg Bell is Project Manager for Reflex Advanced Materials. He is a multi-disciplined engineering management professional with more than 40 years of experience in the natural resources sector. Mr. Bell has successfully built and managed several start-up operations in various capacities. He has been active in graphite and lithium exploration for the past seven years.

Christopher W. Hill leads the company’s Corporate Development initiatives. He is an investor and entrepreneur with over a decade of experience in the capital markets.

Market Opportunity

The robots-as-a-service (RaaS) business model has gained significant traction, super-charged by the COVID-19 pandemic, which instantly catalyzed game-changing growth and application. According to Verified Market Research, the service robotics market is projected to reach $173.17 billion by 2030, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 21.25%.

First Tellurium Corp. (CSE: FTEL) (OTCQB: FSTTF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight First Tellurium Corp. (CSE: FTEL) (OTCQB: FSTTF) .

First Tellurium Corp. (CSE: FTEL) (OTCQB: FSTTF) is committed to exploring for and providing essential and critical metals, including tellurium, gold, silver, copper and tungsten, for North American markets. This objective is anchored by the company’s Deer Horn tellurium-gold-silver-copper project in British Columbia, Canada, and further enhanced by its property option on the Klondike tellurium-gold prospect located in Colorado, USA.

First Tellurium’s unique business model is to generate revenue and value through mineral discovery, project development, project generation and cooperative access to untapped mineral regions in indigenous territory with sustainable exploration potential.

The company is headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Tellurium and the Green Energy Revolution

Tellurium has a key role to play in the ongoing green energy revolution. It is widely used in the manufacturing of photovoltaic cells for solar panels.

Despite this utility, ongoing trade tensions between China and the U.S. create implications for both tellurium and the production of cadmium-tellurium solar cells. Earlier this year, China announced plans to restrict exports of critical metals gallium and germanium, both essential for the production of semiconductors. For reference, China produces around 80% of the world’s gallium and approximately 60% of the world’s germanium.

China’s recent trade restrictions amplify the fragility of the North American tellurium supply, as the Asian nation currently produces about 60% of the world’s tellurium. This sustained supply vulnerability is why First Solar, the United States’ largest solar panel producer, set up a worldwide search for tellurium deposits in the mid-2000s.

“In North America alone, our understanding is that First Solar looked at over a hundred tellurium properties,” First Tellurium CEO Tyrone Docherty stated in a news release. “Their number one property by far, which they acquired, was the Colorado Klondike which we now control.”

The U.S. is now looking to secure safe, domestic sources of tellurium and many other critical metals to pre-empt potential shortages. The Biden administration has instituted a stream of policies, particularly the U.S. Inflation Reduction Act, to source solar components from North America and other “friendly” jurisdictions.

As the only junior mining company in the world focused on tellurium exploration, First Tellurium is ahead of the curve in capitalizing on these initiatives to establish strategic, domestic supplies of key resources for solar panel manufacturers.

First Tellurium’s ESG Initiatives

Through its exploration and partnerships with Fenix Advanced Materials, Cheona Metals and IRMA, First Tellurium strives to generate a measurable, beneficial social or environmental impact alongside a financial return. The company conducts a diversified search for metals, working in alliance with indigenous peoples, NGOs, governments and leading metals buyers. First Tellurium believes this is the future of mineral exploration — generating revenue by exploring responsibly and leveraging diverse partnerships.

First Tellurium proudly adheres to, and supports, the principles and rights set out in the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and, in particular, the fundamental proposition of free, prior and informed consent.



Deer Horn Tellurium-Gold-Silver-Copper Project

Deer Horn is located on 51.33 square kilometers (km) in west-central British Columbia, 36 km south of the prolific Huckleberry copper-molybdenum mine and 135 km southwest of the community of Burns Lake. It is one of few significant tellurium discoveries outside Asia and includes a 2.4 km-long vein system of high-grade gold, silver and tellurium, as well as broader zones of bulk-tonnage gold, silver and tellurium mineralization. The company completed a positive Preliminary Economic Estimate and has begun permitting for a 10,000-tonne bulk sample program to advance the project toward mine feasibility. It is North America’s only silver-gold-tellurium property with an NI 43-101 compliant tellurium resource, and it hosts a number of other mineralized targets and zone containing critical metals such as copper, tungsten and zinc.

First Tellurium owns 50% of the property, with an option to acquire up to a 75% interest. The company has engaged Dias Geophysical of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, to conduct induced polarization (IP) geophysics on the Deer Horn Project in summer 2023. The program is designed to help develop drill targets for a subsequent drilling program.

Klondike Gold-Tellurium Project

The Klondike property is located in Saguache County, Colorado, southwest of Buena Vista in the state’s historical mining district. The company reports it has engaged Burgex Mining Consultants of Sandy, Utah, to stake additional claims around the Klondike property. The claims have been filed with the Bureau of Land Management.

Klondike demonstrates exceptional tellurium grades. Tellurium, used in high-efficiency cadmium telluride (Cd-Te) solar panels, next-generation lithium-ion batteries and thermoelectric devices to change heat into energy, is an essential element for the world’s transition to green energy.

The Klondike property was a top tellurium prospect owned previously by First Solar Inc., one of the world’s largest solar panel producers. First Solar terminated its worldwide raw materials exploration program in 2012 and sold the property to Colorado Klondike LLC, which optioned the project to First Tellurium. Colorado Klondike, led by First Solar’s former Exploration Manager in North America, is managing the upcoming exploration program.

The Colorado Geological Survey (CGS), in partnership with the Colorado School of Mines, reported on First Solar’s exploration at Klondike in 2015, noting: “Surface sampling by First Solar, Inc. in 2006 found very high tellurium grades of up to 3.3% (33,000 ppm), along with locally high gold grades. Tellurium grades at Klondike were the highest encountered in the company’s nationwide exploration program.”

Market Outlook

First Tellurium in spring 2023 referenced recent forecasts by the International Energy Agency (IEA) pointing to rapid growth in solar photovoltaic (solar PV) deployment worldwide. According to the agency, solar PV installations will generate more power by 2027 than any other energy source, including coal, natural gas and hydro. To meet this demand, consumption of both silver and tellurium, key components of solar panels, is expected to surge in coming years.

Chen Lin, founder of Lin Asset Management, has written in his investment newsletter for clients that solar PV is now the largest industrial usage of silver. He said that in 2022 solar PV production used about 12% of total silver demand, or about 120 million ounces of silver. Lin expects this number to rise dramatically in the coming years, and that is likely to lead to silver supply deficits for decades to come.

Lin points out that solar power is now the cheapest source of energy in many parts of the world and that all forecasts point to dramatic expansion of solar PV in the coming two decades. Conservative estimates forecast 300 gigawatts of solar PV production by 2027, up from the current level of about 200 gigawatts.
