Tenax Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: TENX) (FRA: YBOC) is a specialty pharmaceutical firm which is focused on the identification, development and commercialization of products which address unmet medical needs for pulmonary and cardiovascular ailments in Canada and the United States.

The firm has a remarkable scientific advisory team, which includes recognized international experts in pulmonary hypertension. It is based in Morrisville, North Carolina and was incorporated in 1967, on May 26. Before changing its name to Tenax Therapeutics Inc., the firm was known as Oxygen Biotherapeutics Inc.

The company is also engaged in the cosmetic industry and has developed the DERMACYTE line of skin care products, which addresses various common aging issues, including blemishes, skin tone, puffiness, wrinkles, fine lines and more. This is in addition to developing a PFC-based topical cream for use in dermatological indications and wounds.

Additionally, it owns the rights to commercialize and develop levosimendan in North America, which was developed as a pulmonary hypertension treatment associated with preserved ejection fraction and heart failure. Apart from levosimendan, the firm is also engaged in the development of a tyrosine kinase inhibitor indicated for treating pulmonary arterial hypertension, known as Imatinib.

The company recently reported progress in its phase II study of its candidate levosimendan as a treatment for heart failure and pulmonary hypertension. Their statement noted that the drug effectively decreased pulmonary capillary wedge pressure and was the first drug to show improved cardiovascular hemodynamics. Given that pulmonary hypertension and heart failure with preserved ejection fraction has no effective medical treatments, the company’s candidate may well be on its way to becoming the first approved treatment for this disease. This will help address a previously unmet clinical need, which will help patients who suffer from this ailment, while also benefitting the firm and its shareholders.

Compass Pathways PLC. (CMPS)

InvestorBrandNetwork, QualityStocks, InvestorPlace, MarketBeat, Daily Trade Alert, StreetInsider, Schaeffer's, Trades Of The Day, The Street and Prism MarketView reported earlier on Compass Pathways PLC. (CMPS), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

The United States Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) has expressed that it is willing to consider the use of psychedelics in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) treatment. In a statement issued to KDKA-TV Investigates, the agency said that it is open to the use of hallucinogenics to treat PTSD and noted that it is “committed to safely exploring” all paths that benefit U.S. military veterans.

Psychedelics have attracted a lot of attention in recent years due to claims of their medical efficacy, especially against mental-health conditions. A growing body of scientific literature has found that psychedelics such as MDMA and psilocybin (magic mushrooms) have the potential to treat debilitating mental disorders, including PTSD and treatment-resistant depression, which tend to affect veterans.

When paired with psychotherapy, psychedelics have been found to deliver potent long-term benefits with minimal side effects after just a few doses. Most of this research is still in its infancy. Still, the findings have been so encouraging that policymakers and major companies are looking into the possibility of legalizing and developing psychedelic-based treatments for the masses.

These studies coupled with anecdotal accounts from people who used psychedelics outside of the clinical trial system have significantly increased public interest in the drug, particularly among people who failed to respond to conventional mental health treatments.

Military veteran John Lewandowski is one of the many veterans who have used psychedelics as an alternative mental-health treatment with great success. Lewandowski came back from Afghanistan with a traumatic brain injury (TBI), a drinking problem and horrific memories that pushed him deeper into isolation and addiction. After rounds of pharmaceuticals and talk therapy failed to give him any relief, the veteran turned to psilocybin, the hallucinogenic agent in magic mushrooms, and finally found peace.

Navy vet and local Congressman Chris Deluzio is supporting a bipartisan measure that would facilitate the research of various psychedelics in PTSD treatment, a move that would make psychedelic-based therapies much more accessible to veterans such as Lewandowski. Deluzio is also a member of the House Veterans Affairs and Armed Services Committees, and he is calling for VA officials to attend an impending hearing to discuss a way forward.

The VA also notes that it is committed to exploring substances such as psychedelics that could help the nation’s 15 million-plus veterans. Still, the agency cautions veterans against self-medicating psychedelics and potentially harming themselves, a sentiment held by Deluzio as well.

But with federal approval likely years away, veterans such as Lewandowski who benefited from psychedelics say they will continue self-medicating. Hopefully, startups such as Compass Pathways PLC. (NASDAQ: CMPS) can bring approved psychedelic formulations onto the market quickly so that patients can access these treatments legally instead of taking the unknown risks associated with self-medication.

Compass Pathways PLC. (CMPS), closed Monday's trading session at $5.27, even for the day, on 259,477 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 10.09M and the stock's 52-week low/high is $5.01/$11.48.

Workhorse Group Inc. (WKHS)

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

An automaker is looking to alleviate range anxiety, one of the largest barriers to electric vehicle adoption, by equipping electric cars with generators. Range anxiety refers to the fear of running out of power while on the road with no charging station in sight, and many American drivers cite it as one of their main reasons for not switching to EVs.

Ram, a brand by automaker Stellantis, has introduced an electric pickup truck dubbed the Ramcharger, which comes equipped with a 3.6-liter V6 combustion engine and a generator to recharge the onboard battery while the pickup truck is moving. This offering would be especially beneficial for drivers who tow or haul things and need more power while on the road.

While the United States has a nationwide network of easily accessible fueling stations for regular drivers to use, public electric charging stations are harder to come by. They are mostly concentrated in certain cities in states such as California and are often plagued with issues including long wait lines and dysfunctional chargers. This makes electric cars the least attractive option for drivers who regularly take long-haul trips, especially with cargo. Electric pickups such as the Rivian R1T come with up to 410 miles in range, but their high price range puts them out of the reach of most drivers.

Ram CEO Tim Kuniskis says that while battery electric vehicles (BEVs) have a lot of advantages, issues such as limited range are slowing their adoption. Fortunately, he says, Ramcharger drivers won’t have to worry about running out of juice while on the road. The pickup’s 27-gallon gas tank and its battery give it up to 690 miles of range when fully charged. Furthermore, the truck can tow up to 14,000 pounds in weight. It has a two-way charging system that allows it to take and discharge power, giving Ramcharger owners the ability to power their homes with their cars, albeit for a limited amount of time.

Although Stellantis has been slow to introduce fully electric vehicles, this plug-in hybrid equipped with a generator has the potential to attract significant market demand from consumers who were interested in switching to EVs but had reservations about range.

Unlike traditional plug-in hybrids, the Ramcharger will only use the gas engine to charge the battery, not turn the wheels. Ram is poised to debut the new hybrid pickup truck in showrooms at the close of the year. Other EV makers such as Workhorse Group Inc. (NASDAQ: WKHS) are having the competition brought to them, and they will need to step up in order to keep growing their market share.

Workhorse Group Inc. (WKHS), closed Monday's trading session at $0.3999, up 4.7956%, on 5,651,639 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 2.234M and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.3555/$2.91.

Canaan Inc. (CAN)

QualityStocks, MarketClub Analysis, Schaeffer's, InvestorPlace, TradersPro, StockEarnings, StreetInsider, Stockhouse, MarketBeat, AllPennyStocks, INO Market Report, BUYINS.NET, CryptoCurrencyWire, InvestorsUnderground, Stock Fortune Teller, Trades Of The Day, StockMarketWatch, StocksEarning, The Online Investor, The Street, TopStockAnalysts and SmarTrend Newsletters reported earlier on Canaan Inc. (CAN), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Despite recent surges in Bitcoin, whose value more than doubled following a significant downturn, many day traders state that these gains are insufficient to lure them back into the market. As FTX cofounder Sam Bankman-Fried awaits his sentence after a fraud conviction, the industry anticipates this event will signal the end of its tumultuous phase and usher in a more stable era of mainstream acceptance. However, this maturity might mean the crypto market will no longer offer the extraordinary growth and unique trading opportunities seen in previous years.

Retail investors retreated from the market following FTX’s collapse last year, causing Bitcoin’s value to plummet below $16,000, resulting in a 40% decline in traders’ returns. Last week, Bitcoin surged above $35,000, though still far from its all-time high of nearly $69,000 in 2021. This spike was fueled by optimism surrounding the potential approval of the first Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF), with BlackRock Inc. submitting an application in June.

The situation now appears more promising, even as the broader market has experienced a 5% decline in the S&P 500 since the end of July. Retail crypto trading volumes as a percentage of total volume in the United States on the Bitstamp exchange have increased from 33% to 35% between the first and second halves of the year. Globally, this figure has risen from 8% to 9%.

Many crypto day traders have, however, already moved on. Craig Murray, who made almost $200,000 in the market, decided to exit after hearing about FTX’s impending collapse, citing the uncertainty surrounding the crypto space as a key factor.

There is also a significant shift in trading volumes between weekdays and weekends, according to Velo Data founder and CEO Fredrick Collins. Weekday trading volumes now exceed weekend volumes by 50%, contrasting with the past when the ratio was nearly one to one.

Tim van den Berg, who traded various digital assets between 2016 and 2019, acknowledges that he initially lost around $12,000 but now trades futures profitably. However, his interest in cryptocurrencies has waned due to perceived manipulation and the market’s transformation into a playground for the wealthy.

Peter To shares a similar sentiment, reminiscing about the early days when he capitalized on late-night market fluctuations. He points out that the crypto market has evolved into a more directional and less erratic landscape.

While Murray no longer actively trades crypto, he maintains holdings on exchanges and occasionally mentors newcomers. Nevertheless, he cautions against the misconception that crypto guarantees easy riches and urges people not to take unnecessary risks.

The reduction in the number of day traders focusing on cryptos is unlikely to affect the operations of many companies in this space, such as Canaan Inc. (NASDAQ: CAN), since these don’t directly depend on trading activity.

Canaan Inc. (CAN), closed Monday's trading session at $1.61, off by 3.012%, on 1,857,940 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 312,928 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $1.5201/$3.98.

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.

Multiple marijuana multistate operators (MSOs) are elevating their stock listings in Canada to higher-tier exchanges, setting a trend that more are likely to follow. However, their main objective appears to be listing on U.S. exchanges such as the NASDAQ or the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).

The shift involves MSOs moving from the lower Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE) to the Cboe Canada Exchange or the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX). This transition holds potential advantages, including increased liquidity and trading volume, access to institutional investments, and meeting stricter listing requirements, aligning these companies closer to conditions necessary for listing on the NYSE or Nasdaq.

Matt Karnes, founder of GreenWave Advisors, a New-York-based marijuana investment research company, states that the move to uplist is a preparatory step for these companies to position themselves better for a potential transition when federal policies, such as legalization, allow U.S. exchange listings for plant-touching companies.

Some of the MSOs that are uplisting include TerrAscend Corp. (TSX: TSND) (OTCQX: TSNDF), based in Toronto, which moved to the TSX from the CSE in July. Additionally, Verano Holdings, headquartered in Chicago, made a move from the CSE to Cboe Canada, while Curaleaf Holdings, based in New York, is in the process of transitioning from the CSE to the TSX.

The shift from the CSE to larger exchanges has provided these MSOs with increased access to a broader investor base, solving issues related to institutional investment and enhancing trading volume. TerrAscend’s executive chair Jason Wild noted the company’s increased trading volume and access to institutional investors since joining the TSX.

According to Darren Weiss, president of Verano, while listing on a more senior Canadian exchange offers the advantage of quicker access to U.S. equity markets when federal policy changes occur, it is still not on par with major U.S. exchanges such as the NASDAQ.

The primary obstacle for plant-touching cannabis companies listing on major U.S. exchanges like the NYSE or NASDAQ is the federal illegality of marijuana. However, some creative corporate restructuring, as demonstrated by Canopy Growth Corp.’s creation of Canopy USA, has allowed for a workaround to list on the TSX. TerrAscend also engaged in similar restructuring to meet TSX listing requirements, while Verano found a more straightforward path via Cboe Canada without needing significant restructuring.

The increasing trend of MSO uplisting in Canada is likely to continue, according to Karnes, unless U.S. regulatory or legislative reform permits domestic stock listings for plant-touching cannabis companies. That would allow these companies to bypass the Canadian exchanges and list directly on U.S. exchanges. However, the timing and likelihood of such reforms remain uncertain.

TerrAscend Corp. (TSNDF), closed Monday's trading session at $1.75, up 1.7442%, on 144,669 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 466,222 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $1.00/$2.50.

Green Thumb Industries Inc. (GTBIF)

InvestorPlace, QualityStocks, MarketBeat, Wealth Insider Alert, The Online Investor, Daily Trade Alert, Trades Of The Day, TradersPro, The Street, Cabot Wealth, CFN Media Group, StreetInsider, Zacks, Trading For Keeps, wyatt research newsletter, Kiplinger Today, Top Pros' Top Picks, Daily Profit and Technology Profits Daily reported earlier on Green Thumb Industries Inc. (GTBIF), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

A Republican has reintroduced a bipartisan measure that would legalize cannabis at the federal level to Congress. South Carolina Republican Representative Nancy Mace reintroduced the States Reform Act, a measure to amend the federal Controlled Substances Act and allow cannabis at the federal level.

The proposal is currently acting as a placeholder and has no text. Even so, it is cosponsored by Republican Representatives Matt Gaetz (Florida) and Tom McClintock (California) as well as Democratic Representatives Dean Phillips (Minnesota) and David Trone (Maryland).

Democrats have largely been behind America’s decade-long wave of cannabis reform and are currently working to legalize the controversial plant at the federal level. However, even though the States Reform Act was introduced by a Republican and has bipartisan support, it has little chance of advancing past the House with new Speaker Mike Johnson in charge.

A prior version of the cannabis legalization bill that was introduced in late 2021 would have eliminated marijuana from the Controlled Substances Act, levied a 3.75% federal excise tax on cannabis sales and let states decide on other regulatory issues.  It attracted significant attention because it was the first Republican-introduced measure to legalize cannabis at the federal level and had six Republican cosponsors.

Observers at Capitol Hill expected Mace to reintroduce the measure earlier this legislative session, but Mace’s involvement in the House speaker drama likely took her attention away from the measure. There has been evidence of strife between House leadership and Mace from early 2023, and she was part of a group of far-right Republicans who voted to remove Kevin McCarthy as the House speaker.

Consequently, many observers believe that any Mace-led legislation, especially a federal cannabis legalization measure, would not be successful.

New House speaker Mike Johnson is a conservative Louisiana Christian with a long history of opposing marijuana reform. Johnson voted against each marijuana reform bill while he was in Congress and will most likely maintain his prohibitionist stance now that he is the House speaker.

He opposed efforts to expand cannabis banking access in 2019 and 2021 and has shown that he is against even the most modest cannabis reform efforts.

Diamond Lake Minerals (OTC: DLMI), a leading multistrategy operating company specializing in the development and support of digital assets and SEC-registered security tokens, was spotlighted in a recent exclusive Benzinga interview. During the interview, Diamond Lake Minerals CEO Brian Esposito talked with host Jordan Robinson about the company, which specializes in the development and support of digital assets and SEC-registered security tokens. During the interview, Esposito explained that the goal of the company is to responsibly innovate and develop valuable traditional businesses and successfully combine them with the future of money: digital assets. He noted that his new role as a CEO is a "fruition" of his 23 years of being an entrepreneur, building and holding companies. Calling Diamond Lake Minerals an "old-school GE conglomerate industry-agnostic parent company," he noted that the company had different types of subsidiaries, including media, technology, TV, film and music. "Responsible innovation . . . is being fully involved with security tokens," said Diamond Lake Minerals CEO Brian Esposito during the interview. "Those are regulated SEC digital securities since the inception. Understanding that space and where we believe the future of securities are going in a digital format operates in a form of full transparency for security token holders or traditional security holders. What we want to do is give power back to investors to understand what they're holding, all the inside operations of a company that's operating fully transparent to their shareholders or their security token holders. And for us that is the ability to offer these types of new technologies that sit on blockchain where security token holders can have access to investments that they never had access to before. And that's what we believe the beauty of what we're building as a hybrid traditional security with a blended future of digital security tokens in our subsidiaries."

Recent News

Renovaro BioSciences Inc. (NASDAQ: RENB)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Renovaro BioSciences Inc. (NASDAQ: RENB) .

After decades of dominating cancer treatment protocols across the globe, surgery, radiation and chemotherapy are facing increased competition from a fourth treatment option: immunotherapy.  Miami Cancer Institute's CEO and executive medical director Dr. Micahel Zinner notes that cancer treatments traditionally involve using surgery to remove as much of the cancerous tumor as possible followed by chemotherapy or radiation to kill off the remaining cancer cells. While these treatments aren't fully effective and often have many negative side effects, they have saved millions of lives worldwide over the decades. However, some pundits are now referring to immunotherapy, a relatively new cancer treatment that leverages a patient's immune system to fight cancer, as the "fourth pillar" of cancer treatment. Unlike chemotherapy or radiation therapy, which introduce toxic substances or high doses of radiation into the body to kill off cancer cells, immunotherapy taps into the body's inherent disease-fighting capabilities and bolsters the immune system's ability to fight cancer cells. Immunotherapy teaches the immune system to find and kill cancer cells, leaving it more equipped to deal with cancer tumors. Or as Stand Up to Cancer (SU2C) chief science officer Julian Adams, Ph.D., puts it, immunotherapy "awakens the immune system." With enterprises such as Renovaro BioSciences Inc. (NASDAQ: RENB) pushing the boundaries of what immunotherapy can do for cancer patients, these forms of treatment could soon become commonplace and accessible to all in need.

Renovaro BioSciences Inc. (NASDAQ: RENB), formerly Enochian BioSciences Inc., is an advanced, pre-clinical biotechnology firm in cell, gene and immunotherapy focused on solid tumors with short life expectancy. The company aims to unlock potentially long-term or life-long cancer remission in some of the deadliest cancers, and to potentially treat or cure serious infectious diseases such as Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) infection.

The oncology platform is now at the forefront of Renovaro’s development activities. While Renovaro’s current efforts focus primarily on pancreatic cancer, it plans to include other solid tumors with short life-expectancy in the first in human Phase I/IIa studies that are on track to start by mid-2024. The company’s Pre-Investigational New Drug (pre-IND) submission included a human study plan covering pancreatic cancer, as well as other cancers that are difficult to treat, potentially including triple-negative breast cancer, head and neck cancers and mesothelioma.

Renovaro’s proprietary, novel technology uses cell- and gene-therapy to promote a renewed immune response against solid tumors. Important confirmatory results from two humanized mouse models using the company’s novel dendritic cell-based therapy, independently conducted by Dr. Anahid Jewett, a renowned cancer researcher in the field of immunotherapy at UCLA, were presented previously at two scientific conferences and were the foundation supporting a pre-IND submission to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Notably, Dr. Jewett’s findings from these studies consistently demonstrated 80% to 90% pancreatic tumor reduction in size and weight that was correlated with significant enhancement of key aspects of the immune response.

Renovaro is headquartered in Los Angeles, California.


Renovaro’s product development strategy is anchored in the use of “non-self” or allogeneic cells that enhance targeted immune response. Its lead candidate, RENB-DC11, is an innovative therapeutic vaccination platform that could potentially be used to induce life-long remissions from some of the deadliest solid tumors.
Treatment with RENB-DC11 has now been shown to significantly reduce the size of human pancreatic tumors in humanized mice in three independent studies. The reduction in tumor size correlated with statistically significant increases in key components of an immune response.

Pre-IND was completed in June 2023, with IND filing forecast for first half of 2024. First in-human Phase I/IIa trials are predicted shortly after in H1 of 2024, including pancreatic and other solid tumors with poor treatment options and life-expectancy.

Renovaro believes that RENB-DC11 could represent the most promising and effective strategy to achieve life-long remission for a number of common and deadly tumors.

Other Development Candidates

In addition to its lead oncology platform, Renovaro’s development pipeline includes a platform targeting infectious diseases, including:

  • RENB-HV12 – An engineered allogeneic T-Cell vaccine, this therapeutic HIV vaccine candidate enhances immune infiltration, immune killing and immune surveillance. Potential pre-IND submission is planned for first half of 2024, with IND-submission expected in second half of 2024.
  • RENB-HV21 – Leveraging allogeneic NK plus Gamma Delta T (GDT) cells as potential therapy for HIV, ENOB-HV21 shows promising preliminary results without confounding factors. Renovaro owns an exclusive license and has completed the Pre-IND submission, with a potential IND submission and human trials expected in 2024.
  • RENB-HV01 – Caring Cross, a non-profit corporation, has shown that its proprietary CAR-T cells cure HIV in a mouse model. Studies in humans have begun. Renovaro has entered into a profit-sharing sublicense with Caring Cross and would share in profits if the product is commercialized.
  • RENB-HB01 – This therapeutic approach aims to eliminate all HBV rapidly (“seek and kill”) with a two to three dose treatment regimen. It is expected to be applicable for early disease to maximize impact with low risk of toxicity. Pre-IND comments have been received from the FDA for its AAV-delivery system.
    LOI to Merge with GEDi Cube International Ltd.

On August 9, 2023, Renovaro announced its execution of a binding, exclusive letter of intent to merge a subsidiary with cutting-edge health AI company GEDi Cube International Ltd. The combined company is expected to create a potential multiplier effect to accelerate earlier diagnosis, more effective therapy, and precision in silico drug discovery.

GEDi Cube’s innovative technology, developed over nearly a decade, has already validated earlier diagnoses of lung cancer in humans at a leading university hospital. GEDi Cube has likewise created the early diagnosis technology for 12 additional cancers, including pancreatic and breast cancer.

“I believe joining forces with GEDi Cube could enhance the efficacy of our upcoming trials and speed up the discovery of novel treatment approaches, thereby extending our life-saving technology to more cancer patients and renewing hope for them and their families,” Dr. Mark Dybul, CEO of Renovaro, stated in the news release.

GEDi Cube is led by CEO Craig Rhodes, who brings to that company tremendous industry experience leading life sciences groups at industry leaders Intel, Oracle and NVIDIA.

Market Opportunity

Pancreatic cancer alone is diagnosed globally in approximately 495,000 people each year, including roughly 64,000 in the U.S. Nearly 466,000 of those patients die annually, including approximately 51,000 in the U.S. Because of limited treatment options, life expectancy is very poor – with an approximately 10% patient survival rate at five years after diagnosis.

The global pancreatic cancer treatment market was valued at $2.15 billion in 2021 and is projected to grow from $2.48 billion in 2022 to $6.85 billion by 2029, according to Fortune Business Insights. That growth represents a CAGR of 15.7% for the forecast period.

A separate report from Fortune Business Insights projects that the global HIV drug market will grow from $30.46 billion in 2021 to $45.58 billion in 2028, recording a CAGR of 5.9% over the forecast period.

According to GlobalData, the value of the market for hepatitis B treatment is forecast to experience a significant increase in the coming years, with revenues expected to grow from $1.6 billion in 2022 to $10.5 billion in 2029. That represents a very rapid CAGR of 30% over the period. An estimated 296 million people suffer from the condition worldwide.

Reunion Gold Corp. (TSX.V: RGD) (OTCQX: RGDFF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Reunion Gold Corp. (TSX.V: RGD) (OTCQX: RGDFF) .

A new S&P Global Market Intelligence study has revealed that mining companies are allocating billions of dollars to gold exploration despite a global push for green-energy adoption. Although 2023 registered a $1.1 billion drop in funding for gold exploration, the precious metal still makes up 46% of global mining exploration budgets. Gold budgets fell by 16% ($1.1 billion year-on-year loss) to a little under $6 billion, but gold still attracted the majority of mining exploration investment in 2023. This was despite a sharp increase in investment in electric vehicle battery metals such as lithium and nickel as well as uranium, rare earth and copper amid a global green-energy transition. Although these metals are poised to play a significant role in the green economy, and many of them are predicted to run into supply issues in a few short years, gold still plays a dominant role in mineral exploration. With all the combined outflows into energy transition metals such as lithium failing to reach the investment in gold exploration, it is clear that mining companies are still incredibly invested in the precious metal. With exploration companies such as Reunion Gold Corp. (TSX.V: RGD) (OTCQX: RGDFF) very active in different jurisdictions of interest, the future supply of gold is almost assured despite the drop in the funds being directed toward exploration activities in the wider industry.

Reunion Gold Corp. (TSX.V: RGD) (OTCQX: RGDFF) is a leading gold explorer in the Guiana Shield, South America. 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.

Longeveron Inc. (NASDAQ: LGVN)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Longeveron Inc. (NASDAQ: LGVN) .

Longeveron (NASDAQ: LGVN), a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing cellular therapies for life-threatening and chronic aging-related conditions such as hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS), Alzheimer's disease and Aging-Related Frailty, is reporting on data from a long-term study. According to the announcement, extended long-term, follow-up data from Longeveron's  ELPIS I trial of Lomecel-B(TM) for patients with hypoplastic left heart syndrome ("HLHS") is being presented as a poster at the annual Scientific Sessions of the American Heart Association (AHA); those sessions are being held this week, Nov. 11-13, 2023, in Philadelphia. The poster for the sessions is titled "Long-Term Transplant-Free Survival Is Improved in Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome with Cell-Based Therapy." The poster shows that study data reported 100% of the 10 patients participating in the ELPIS I trial survived and remained heart transplant-free for up to five years of age after receiving Lomecel-B during their stage 2 surgery. Extended follow-up data on all patients enrolled in the study now reflects monitoring for up to five years following treatment with Lomecel-B, with additional follow-up ongoing. By comparison, historical results from other studies report that children with HLHS experience approximately 20% mortality by five years of age. "Long-term follow-up data from our ELPIS I trial demonstrate the continued survival of the participants, and reinforce potential survival benefit of Lomecel-B for patients with HLHS," said Longeveron cofounder, chief science officer, and board chair Joshua M. Hare, MD, in the press release. "These data represent an additional up to two years of follow-up data, which point to the potential of Lomecel-B in this indication and provide support for our ongoing ELPIS 2 study, which has exceeded its 50% enrollment threshold. We anticipate completing enrollment in this trial in 2024. There is an unmet need to improve the transplant-free survival for patients with HLHS, and we hope Lomecel-B can significantly improve the treatment landscape for this patient population."

Longeveron Inc. (NASDAQ: LGVN) is a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing regenerative medicines to address unmet medical needs for specific aging-related and life-threatening conditions. The Company’s research and therapies are aimed at improving the outcome of infants born with a life-threatening heart condition, as well as improving the healthspan for the aging population – the number of years a person is expected to live in relatively good health, free of chronic disease and disabilities of aging, with function and ability to perform activities of daily living.

Longeveron is involved in clinical trials in the following indications: Hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS), Alzheimer’s disease, and Aging-related Frailty.

The Company’s philosophy revolves around the idea that regenerative medicine may hold the potential to improve certain rare medical conditions and contribute to healthy aging. While there has been a remarkable rise in life expectancy over the last century due to medical and public health advancements, this increase in longevity has not been paralleled by the number of years a person is expected to live in relatively good health, free of chronic disease and disabilities of aging.

Longeveron’s lead investigational product is Lomecel-B™, an allogeneic Medicinal Signaling Cell therapy product isolated from the bone marrow of young, healthy adult donors. As humans age, they experience a decrease in immune system function, a decline in blood vessel functioning, chronic inflammation, and other issues. Clinical data has suggested that Lomecel-B™ may address these conditions through multiple mechanisms of action (MOA) that simultaneously target key aging-related processes.

The Company is headquartered in Miami, Florida.


Lomecel-B™ is being evaluated in multiple clinical trials for aging-related chronic diseases and other life-threatening conditions under U.S. FDA-approved Investigational New Drug applications. Lomecel-B™ has multiple potential mechanisms of action encompassing pro-vascular, pro-regenerative, anti-inflammatory, and tissue repair and healing effects with broad potential applications across a spectrum of disease areas.

The drug is made from special living cells called Medicinal Signaling Cells (MSCs) that are isolated from fresh bone marrow tissue that has been donated by adult donors aged 18 to 45. Once the MSCs have been isolated from the fresh bone marrow through a careful selection process, the cells are culture-expanded (allowed to replicate under controlled laboratory conditions) into the billions using specialized techniques and processes. After a specific number of expansion cycles, called “passages,” the cells are harvested, separated into specific doses (e.g., 50 million cells), and cryopreserved until future use.

These cells have been shown to have characteristics that allow them to be transplanted from a donor to host without triggering a harmful immune response in the recipient, and they can be administered on an outpatient basis in as little as 40 minutes after thawing. Because of these characteristics, Lomecel-B™ is considered an “off-the-shelf” product.

In some trials, such as for Alzheimer’s disease and Aging-related Frailty, Lomecel-B™ is administered via peripheral intravenous infusion, while, in the Company’s HLHS trial, Lomecel-B™ is administered via direct injection into the heart tissue.

Market Opportunity

Longeveron estimates the potential market size for Lomecel-B™ in the treatment of HLHS to be up to $1 billion annually, globally.

U.S. patients suffering from Aging-related Frailty are estimated using U.S. Census Bureau statistics to be approximately 8.1 million. That population potentially represents a market for Lomecel-B™ of between $4 billion and $8 billion globally per year, according to Company estimates.

Additionally, the Alzheimer’s Association puts the number of Americans with that disease at 5.1 million, highlighting another potentially addressable market for Lomecel-B™, that’s worth $5 billion to $10 billion annually.

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

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

The rare earth metals market was valued at $5.3 billion in 2021 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 12.3%, resulting in a value of $9.6 billion by 2026

The growing tensions between China and the United States make it more important than ever for sustainable REE (Rare Earth Element) separation operations that do not depend on China, and Ucore's RapidSX(TM) technology is key to the answer

Ucore plans is developing its first Strategic Metals Complex for REE separation in Louisiana

The demand for rare earth elements ("REE") is expected to surge as the electric vehicle and renewable energy market, and other critical REE applications, go forward. The rare earth metals market was valued at $5.3 billion in 2021 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 12.3% from 2021 to 2026, resulting in a value of $9.6 billion by 2026 (  The current problem with REE production is the lack of rare earth separation facilities of scale in the United States, with the market being dominated by China. The recent tensions between China and the United States make it critical for sustainable REE separation operations that do not depend on China. Ucore Rare Metals (TSX.V: UCU) (OTCQX: UURAF), and its powerful new metals separation technology company, is on a mission to execute an ESG-centered plan toward establishing a comprehensive North American critical metals supply chain. The company has developed a superior commercial-ready technology, RapidSX(TM), for separating and purifying critical metals. Ucore intends to deploy its technology to pursue a critical metals supply chain independent of China and Western companies for use by the many industries dependent upon REE-based components.

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

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

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


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

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

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

Ucore is headquartered in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Projects & Technology

RapidSX™ Demonstration Plant

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

The RapidSX demo plant will show:

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

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

RapidSX™ Technology

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

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

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

Strategic Metals Complex

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

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

Bokan-Dotson Ridge REE Deposit

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

Market Opportunity

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

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

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

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight SenesTech Inc. (NASDAQ: SNES).

Arizona-based SenesTech Inc. provides a unique approach to rodent pest control by formulating a contraceptive that works as birth control in both male and female rats

A major milestone has been reached by the company as it recently began taking orders for its new Evolve(TM) Soft Bait formulation, which joins SenesTech's liquid ContraPest(R) brand as a population-control solution that avoids some of the problems associated with lethal rodenticides

The Evolve(TM) Soft Bait product is targeting the vast professional pest control market that prefers a non-liquid product, as well as providing a consumer-friendly option that may be marketed through big box retailers and e-commerce providers

SenesTech's operation has been growing rapidly this year, and company officers stated last month that its "pro forma cash balance" is $4 million with no long-term debt

With the advent of cooler weather in the Northern Hemisphere, rodents become more noticeable in homes and buildings as they seek warmer refuge. Pest control giant Orkin estimates mice and other rodents invade around 21 million homes across the United States each fall, according to its annual report on the "50 rattiest cities" ( Rodent control innovator SenesTech (NASDAQ: SNES) is using its own unique approach to the science of reducing rat populations to help clients and pest control companies enjoy the holiday season without such unwanted guests. They have developed a means of birth control for the rodents that keeps their populations from growing, allowing their numbers to dwindle generationally.

SenesTech Inc. (NASDAQ: SNES) is the rodent fertility control expert and the inventor of the only EPA-registered contraceptive for male and female rats. The company’s technology provides an innovative and humane method for managing rat populations.

SenesTech is focused on developing effective solutions that are grounded in science and proven through research, all while providing value to people, communities and the environment. The company’s passion is to create a healthier world by better controlling rat pest populations. This aim is critical, as, if left unchecked, a breeding pair of rats and their descendants can produce up to 15,000 pups after just one year.

The company strives for clean cities, efficient businesses and happy households – with a product that was scientifically designed to be effective without killing rats. SenesTech is committed to the sustainable, humane treatment of animals, improving the quality of all human life and enhancing environmental stewardship through the global application of its effective solution in fertility control technology.

SenesTech is headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona.


SenesTech’s first product, ContraPest®, applies revolutionary technology to a global challenge that has persisted since the Middle Ages – the proliferation of rats in urban and agricultural settings. ContraPest® targets the reproductive capabilities of Norway and roof rats. As a highly palatable liquid, the formulation promotes sustained consumption, helping to reduce fertility in both male and female rats, bringing populations down and keeping them down.

The company’s flagship offering can be used as part of integrated pest management (IPM) programs – fitting seamlessly into all IPM programs – to help reduce reproduction and magnify the success of these protocols, or as a standalone solution for customers who want to reduce or eliminate the use of lethal rodent control methods.

In multiple, independent field deployments, ContraPest was shown to reduce rat activity over 90% when added to an existing IPM program.

ContraPest® is registered federally as a General Use Product.

Delivery Systems and New Products

In July 2023, SenesTech began to distribute a new delivery system for ContraPest®, the Isolate Bait System™. This new delivery system brings to market a simple design that enables more efficient deployment, incorporates an enhanced formulation of ContraPest® that is expected to provide improved performance of the fertility control bait in the field and is paired with a new bait station that is more space-efficient and economical.

The other delivery systems available for ContraPest include the Ultimate Bait System™, a tank and tray in a larger format for use with more severe infestations, and the Elevate Bait System™, a unique delivery system that targets above ground infestations, as with roof rats.

SenesTech, as of August 2023, is also in the final stages of releasing a soft bait formulation, which provides the unique attributes of proven fertility control in an industry-familiar format demanded by big box retailers, key e-commerce channels and leading industry pest management professionals.

Market Opportunity

According to SenesTech’s figures, rats cause over $27 billion in damage to public and private infrastructure annually in the United States. Rats also destroy 20% of the global stored food supply every year by consuming or contaminating it.

Rats are known to spread at least 35 diseases, globally posing a dangerous risk to public health and safety. Not only does this age-old problem persist despite extensive campaigns to eradicate it, but multiple sources have reported that post-COVID rat populations have boomed.

Poison-based control methods sicken rats, and they typically die slowly. An animal that eats a poisoned rat may also sicken or die. The global rodenticide market is projected to be worth $1.7 billion by 2026.

In one case study, results reported by the customer showed a $5,000 investment in ContraPest® saved more than $500,000 annually in reduced labor, loss and damage.

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Reflex Advanced Materials Corp. (CSE: RFLX) (OTCQB: RFLXF).

Reflex (CSE: RFLX) (OTCQB: RFLXF) (FWB: HF2), a strategic minerals company, has centered its corporate mission around locating and developing economic properties within the advanced materials space to cater to the rapidly growing needs of the global electric vehicle industry supply chain. "In mid-August, Reflex Advanced Materials announced that it would be issuing 100,000 new common shares of its capital, the penultimate step needed to fulfil a mineral property option payment agreement the company had entered in 2021 for its Zigzag lithium project. Located near Crescent Lake, Ontario and consisting of eight mining claims totaling approximately 2,710 hectares, the Zigzag lithium project is located deep within an area which has come to be known as the Seymour-Crescent-Falcon lithium belt, a geographical phenomenon which has witnessed a number of recent lithium-focused exploration successes over the past few years," a recent article reads. "In addition to its lithium-focused ambitions, Reflex Advanced Materials has also sought to boost its graphite supply capacity. One of only a handful of companies catering to the western natural graphite supply chain, Reflex announced that it would begin mobilizing drill equipment for its planned Summer 2023 initial drill program at the Ruby Graphite Project in Montana."

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.

(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.

Market Opportunity

According to a report from Global Market Insights, the psychotropics drug market had an estimated value of $20.2 billion in 2022 and is projected to reach a value of nearly $37.6 billion by 2032. That represents a CAGR of 6.4% for the forecast period. Factors driving market growth include the increasing prevalence of mental disorders, technological advancements in drug development, a rising geriatric population and increasing healthcare expenditures, the report states.
