Abzu Gold Ltd. (ABZUF)
Gold Stock Investor reported earlier on Abzu Gold Ltd. (ABZUF), and today we are highlighting the Company as "One to Watch" next week here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Abzu Gold Ltd. engages in the exploration and development of gold projects in Ghana. The Company operates in Ghana by way of their wholly owned Ghanaian subsidiary Abzu Resources Ltd. Abzu Gold has their headquarters in Vancouver, British Columbia. The Company lists on the OTC Market's OTC Pink Current Information as well as on the TSX Venture Exchange under the trading symbol ABS.V.
Abzu Gold has worked in Ghana for more than five years, developing strategic relationships with key leaders and selectively acquiring prospective gold-bearing concessions. Previous work on two concessions (mid-1990s to early 2000s) demonstrates extensive gold anomalism consistent with the occurrence of gold mineralization at depth. The Company has invested time developing these local and national relationships, important to their strategic land position on more than 500 square kilometers of highly sought after and productive gold belts.
Abzu Gold holds a portfolio of 16 highly prospective concessions in five of Ghana's premier gold-bearing belts. These include six concessions 100 percent directly held by Abzu or in option agreement with underlying concession holders. These additionally include 10 concessions that the Company has optioned from Red Back Mining Ghana Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Kinross Gold Corp. Each of these properties possess targets at different stages of definition ranging from robust untested soil anomalies to multi-meter, multi-gram gold intercepts in trenches and drill holes. Abzu Gold has aggressive field programs active on four concessions: Nangodi, Asafo, Chia, and U and N.
Today, Abzu Gold announced the start of mobilization for the 2013 drilling season at Nangodi. The Company has contracted Geodrill Ltd. to drill approximately 5,000 meters of combined reverse circulation (RC) and diamond drill core to extend known mineralization along the mapped 1.2-kilometer strike and fill-in between existing holes. The data collected from this program will enable Abzu to proceed with a maiden gold resource estimate and to begin planning a feasibility study.
Mr. Tim McCutcheon, Abzu Gold CEO & Director, commented: "Nangodi as a project has been explored by several operators over the past 20 years. Additionally, it was an operating mine in the first half of the last century. Although to-date there has not been a gold resource published for the property, it is more de-risked than it seems given the volume of past drilling and trenching. Our intent in 2013 is to link together the work done by past operators and compile all the data into one resource number to give investors a better idea of where Nangodi stands today and what potential it has for resource expansion in the future."

PowerVerde, Inc. (PWVI)
SmallCapVoice and The Cervelle Group reported previously on PowerVerde, Inc. (PWVI), and today we choose to report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Founded in 2007, PowerVerde, Inc. manufactures advanced renewable electric power generator systems. These consist of pressure expansion motors operating on low temperature heat sources. These systems make electricity without fossil fuel - from any low-grade heat source. PowerVerde is an environmentally friendly green company producing zero emissions or waste stream byproducts. PowerVerde's testing lab and machine shop are in Scottsdale, Arizona. The Company's executive offices are in Coral Gables, Florida.
The heart of all PowerVerde's electrical generation systems is a Gas Expansion Motor (GEM). It uses a working fluid that undergoes heating until it flashes into a high-pressure gas, much like steam engines powered by boiling water. The difference is the working fluid in the PowerVerde systems is an organic fluid that changes into a gas at a much lower temperature (160F). This means that the heat to boil the fluid can be supplied by low temperature solar panels, by low temperature waste heat, by low-grade geothermal wells or even by burning biomass.
PowerVerde has developed, patented and tested an innovative electrical generation system. It uses the excess, wasted pressure along natural gas pipelines, at wellheads and at other gas pressure sources to generate clean, renewable electricity without burning the natural gas or using any of the pressure source gasses. The Company has contracted Global Machine Works (GMW) to manufacture the systems.
PowerVerde's proprietary Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) system is installed in multiple units for business, schools, hospitals, and other users of electrical power. At present, there are two systems under development. One that will produce up to 10kW and the other will produce up to 20kW. The PowerVerde systems work with any hot water source, not just solar thermal panels; these include geothermal, industrial waste heat and biomass. In addition, the system can store heat for use after the sun goes down by using an underground tank that is full of the new Phase Changing Materials. The most important advantage is the initial cost of installation.
This month, PowerVerde announced the appointment of Mr. Hank Leibowitz to the newly created position of senior design engineer. Mr. Leibowitz is a noted expert in the field of advanced thermal energy systems. The Company established this position in anticipation of the launch of their next generation Liberator, a waste heat-to-energy electrical generation system.
Mr. Leibowitz has more than 35 years experience in the development of Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) and related thermal technologies. He is currently Principal of Waste Heat Solutions, LLC.
PowerVerde, Inc. (PWVI), closed Friday's trading at $0.33, up 3.12%, on 600 volume with 3 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 9,429 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.26/$2.10.

Solo International, Inc. (SLIO)
Mina Mar Marketing Group, Fast Moving Stocks, Preferred Penny Stocks, PenniesPicks, Select Penny Stock, Stock Analyzer, Penny Stock Heroes, and Greenbackers reported earlier on Solo International, Inc. (SLIO), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Founded in 2010, Solo International, Inc. is an exploration mining company that focuses on deposits of rare earth metals and rare earth elements (REEs). The Company has mineral claims totaling 120 hectares located in the mining friendly jurisdiction of Portland Township, Quebec. Rare earth elements are essential raw materials used in nearly all sustainable energy technologies and a wide array of defense applications. Solo International's shares trade on the OTC Bulletin Board.
The Company is focusing on the acquisition, exploration, production, development and potentially, the operation of mining properties in strategic bulk mineable industrial metals (such as REE's, Titanium and Phosphates) sectors of eastern Canada. All of Solo International's properties are currently at the exploration stage in the Province of Quebec.
The United States Geological Survey (USGS) has listed Rare Earth Oxides as one of 19 minerals or materials that the United States is 100 percent import dependent upon. Rare earth elements (REEs) are important for the manufacture of steel, autos, motors, glass and electronic components. This makes REEs a strategic material because China holds most of the global production at ninety-seven percent.
Quebec has what may be large deposits of apatite, the parent mineral for rare earth elements. Recent assessments of several areas near Notre Dame-de-la-Salette indicate recoverable deposits of apatite in a location previously mined in the late 1800's. This location has designation as Philadelphia. There are a number of other old mines near this location. These are McLaren, Lac Tamo, Craft, North Star and Chapleau.
In December 2012, Solo International announced that they received encouraging analytical results from samples taken from the previous apatite mine sites on their Philadelphia Property. The analysis indicates positive anomalies of light rare earth and heavy rare earth elements. The light rare earth elements are La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Pm, Sm, Eu and Gd. These elements are typically more frequent in REE deposits.
The heavy rare earth elements are Tb, Dy, Ho, Er, Tm, Yb, Lu and Y. Heavy rare earths are normally present in lower quantity in REE deposits. They have a more important value than light rare earth elements. Test results indicate the highest rare earth element (REE) anomaly tested to 0.6 percent REE Ox and the highest heavy rare earth element sample tested 27 percent of the total REE content.
Solo International, Inc. (SLIO), closed Friday's trading session at $0.0139, down 6.71%, on 1,822,500 volume with 24 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 5,962,781 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0085/$0.24.

Founded in 1992, Titan Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a biopharmaceutical Company with headquarters in South San Francisco, California. The Company is developing proprietary therapeutics primarily for the treatment of central nervous system (CNS) disorders. Their principal asset is Probuphine®, the first slow-release implant formulation of buprenorphine hydrochloride (buprenorphine). Titan Pharmaceuticals lists on the OTC Bulletin Board.
The design of Probuphine® is to maintain a stable, round-the-clock blood level of the medicine in patients for up to six months following a single treatment. The outpatient treatment of opioid dependence with daily dosed sublingual buprenorphine formulations represents a $1.3 billion market in the United States. A seven-day transdermal patch formulation of buprenorphine for the treatment of chronic pain was launched in the U.S. in 2011.
Probuphine is the first product to utilize ProNeura™. This is a novel, proprietary, long-term drug delivery technology. The ProNeura technology has the potential to be used in developing products for the treatment of other chronic conditions, such as Parkinson's disease.
The New Drug Application (NDA) underwent submission to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in October 2012 seeking approval for the treatment of opioid dependence. The goal of Titan Pharmaceuticals is to enter into one or more partnerships with capable pharmaceutical companies to commercialize Probuphine in the U.S. and international markets, and to develop, potentially, the product for the treatment of chronic pain.

International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO)
The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO). Today, International Stem Cell Corp. closed trading at $0.25, up 2.04%, on 222,293 volume with 63 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 147,148, and its 52-week low/high is $0.161/$0.65.
International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO) specializes in the therapeutic applications of human parthenogenetic stem cells (hpSCs) and the development and commercialization of cell-based research and cosmetic products. The company was first to perfect the natural phenomenon of parthenogenesis, which utilizes unfertilized human eggs to create hpSCs. These stem cells, created in a particular form called HLA homozygous, can be immune-matched to millions of people regardless of sex or racial background, with minimal expectation of immune rejection after transplantation.
hpSCs are as pluripotent as embryonic stem cells (ESCs) and have significant therapeutic potential but their creation does not involve the destruction of a viable human embryo – thus sidestepping the controversy and ethical dilemmas associated with the use of human embryonic stem cells. Different from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSs), hpSCs do not involve manipulation of gene expression back to a less differentiated stage – a practice that may become a safety or regulatory obstacle in clinical applications.
A relatively small number of hpSC lines can offer the potential of producing the first true stem cell bank, UniStemCell, which ISCO intends to create as a means of serving populations across the globe. The company's scientists are currently focused on using hpSC to treat severe diseases of the eye, nervous system, and liver, for which cell therapy has been clinically proven but is limited due to the unavailability of safe human cells.
In addition to its therapeutic focus, ISCO also provides two revenue streams. Firstly through its subsidiary Lifeline Cell Technology, specialized cells and growth media for biological research around the world, and secondly its subsidiary Lifeline Skin Care, the company manufactures and sells anti-aging skincare products utilizing an extract from the hpSC and by leveraging the latest discoveries in the fields of stem cell biology, nanotechnology, and skin cream formulation technology.

“Our TRIO product family of inverters for the commercial market has been a great success in Europe, shipping nearly 1.3 GW in 2012, its first full year in the market,” continued Levran. “And, as the first 1000v string inverter in the U.S., it is set to redefine the commercial segment as we know it today.”
Power-One has worked to optimize energy harvesting, lower the total plant investment, and minimize maintenance in order to maximize the return on investment for PV commercial and utility plant owners. The company’s inverters maintain operation at the peak power point of the array through the use of the Power-One maximum power point tracking (MPPT) algorithm. The ULTRA and TRIO’s wide input voltage range delivers maximum energy harvesting through a broad range of module temperature and insolation levels. Additionally, both inverters have received NEMA 4x environmental ratings, making them the only products in their class with such a prestigious distinction.

NYTEX Energy Holdings, which is engaged in early-stage oil and gas E&P via its NYTEX Petroleum segment and energy market staffing via the KS Energy Search Group, reported a key hiring today to support development of the company’s roughly 7.6k leasehold acre portfolio. Brian Gross, the new VP of operations, adds nearly two decades of upstream and midstream oil and gas industry experience.
NYTE will see immediate impact of such a hiring on their continued exploration and production activities at the Marble Falls play, where the recent drilling/completion of six wells (12% average WI) underscores the company’s maintained acquisition/development strategy. There are a host of companies with production currently in the play despite the high salt water content and need for disposal wells, with Swan Production Company’s 127-well, 3.5k plus BOE/day footprint being a prime example of how to work this limestone.
President and CEO of NYTE, Michael Galvis, welcomed Brian to the firm and made a special note of his exemplary track record in the industry, having cut his teeth out of Texas Tech University (BS in Petroleum Engineering) at major sector player Chesapeake Energy, where he spent four years in the trenches doing the difficult work of the field production engineer and later staff production engineer roles. Gross will be instrumental in providing leadership as drilling proceeds at Marble Falls and elsewhere on the company’s properties, with day-to-day operations of the company’s overall oil and gas well infrastructure being his overarching concern.
Gross comes into the VP of Operations job out of a considerable run over at Rio Vista Operating, where he handled oversight on all the drilling, completion, and production activities as President and Operations Manager, spearheading a range of coal bed methane, as well as conventional targets in Oklahoma. In addition Gross also managed the implementation and operation of two entire gas pipeline systems for Rio, something he has had a great deal of experience with elsewhere in the 19 plus years he has spent handling this sort of work.
Gross designed well over 400 fracking implementations in the Barnett Shale for Chief Oil and Gas as their Completion and Production Engineer, overseeing the producing Johnson and Hill County properties, as well as putting in multiple artificial lifts and other gas pipeline infrastructure. This work even led to his co-authoring a Society of Petroleum Engineers paper (SPE 102063) on techniques for fracking in the Barnett Shale.
Furthermore, Gross pulled two years over at another sector heavyweight, Westside Energy, where he handled all the drilling, completion, and production over watch as their Operations Manager on some 70k acres in the Barnett. He was key to developing much more than production infrastructure as well, helping to negotiate vital farm out, JV, land leasing, and oil/gas marketing opportunities. Gross even assisted in securing vital financing inputs, from bank loans and bridge financing, to equity sales and negotiation of the purchasing price on producing oil/gas properties.
Shareholders will be looking for results and Mr. Gross is already chomping at the bit to take NYTE’s portfolio to the next level production-wise. Investors should keep an ear to the ground for subsequent developments from NYTE, especially out of their Marble Falls operation.

Cardiovascular disease is taking America by storm; and physicians, scientists, and medical technology companies such as Vasomedical are fighting back by educating the public on disease prevention and clinically proven alternatives to current invasive methods of treatment.
Vasomedical and the The International EECP Therapists Association (IETA) today jointly announced the second annual EECP Therapy Week, during which EECP centers in the U.S. will host special events to promote awareness of EECP therapy and recognize the American Heart Association’s Heart Month.
To activities center on the education of cardiovascular disease and EECP Therapy, an FDA cleared, non-invasive therapy for treating patients with several heart conditions. Enhanced external counterpulsation (EECP) is a proprietary non-invasive cardiology treatment created and marketed by Vasomedical.
“EECP Therapy is a complementary, non-invasive form of treatment for patients who, despite maximum medication, still suffer from angina symptoms that interfere with their daily lives,” Louanne Tempich, president of International EECP Therapists Association stated in the press release. “One of the major barriers to EECP treatments being widely accepted is a lack of awareness about this therapy – people do not understand that this is an option with very real, beneficial results. Our goal with EECP Therapy Week is to increase public awareness of this treatment as a safe, non-invasive option that will help improve patients’ lives.”
Among EECP Therapy Week events is the Red Balloon Release, where EECP staff and patients release balloons to the sky with personal messages as a symbolic gesture of the positive impact EECP Therapy has had on their health and the quality of their lives.
“The first annual EECP Therapy Week was a great success,” said Larry Liebman, vice president of Sales & Marketing for Vasomedical. “EECP facilities around the United States showed their support by hosting events and participating in the Red Balloon Release to help generate awareness about this treatment. Since the first annual EECP Therapy Week last year, we have seen an increase in interest and numerous inquiries from physicians and patients about the technology. To date, EECP Therapy has provided a great experience for patients who undergo treatment and scientific studies have demonstrated very positive results for these individuals.”
The second annual EECP Therapy Week will be recognized this year from February 18 – 22, 2013. The Red Balloon Release is scheduled on February 19 and will take place concurrently around the nation at 1 p.m. EST.
