Ghana Gold Corp. is a gold exploration and development company in production in Ghana. The Company has strategic land positions on the world-famous Ashanti Gold Belt. Ghana is Africa's second largest gold producer with an estimated 2 billion ounces still un-mined. Ghana Gold's projects range from alluvial production to exploration of hard rock concessions. The Company lists on the OTC Pink Current Information.
Ghana Gold's Jukwa Concession is their first venture in Ghana. This sprawling concession is in the Western Region on the western fringe of the Ashanti Gold Belt. Production yields have surpassed forecasts with Ghana Gold's team capturing an average of nearly 1.0 gpt. Test results and production forecasts in a more favorable location at the northern tip of the concession have the Company's future projections exceeding current ratios.
Ghana Gold's newest venture is Grumesa on the Ofin River. It is close to the village of Grumesa in the Ashanti Region and it is directly on the shores of the Ofin River. Infrastructure has been constructed, and the Company is ready to begin production on this second site. This project is very near to the world famous Anglo Gold Ashanti mine in Obuasi, Ghana.
Ghana Gold's projects also include the Offinso Gold Fields at Ahenkro. The project is 45 km northwest of Kumasi, Ghana's second largest city. The Ahenkro site is at the northern end of the Ashanti Gold Belt. The Ahenkro is 102.05 square kilometers. It has been in the study and planning stage for more than ten years and is currently in the final stages of approval. Company management will begin with alluvial production while commencing with thorough hard rock drill testing.
Additionally, Ghana Gold has their Brofoyedro project at the River Pra. The Brofoyedro is mid-way between Ghana's largest cities of Kumasi and the capital of Accra. The Company has options for up to 80 Small Scale Concessions with a land mass approaching 2,000 acres.
Last week, Ghana Gold announced that in 2012 they produced 18,878 grams (approximately $50 per gram and $949,573 gross annual revenues) in the Company's first year of production. Their goal is to increase production by 20 percent in the first quarter of 2013. The Company is working to achieve this through the implementation of new equipment and the concentration of alluvial efforts targeting expansion to the southwest corner of the 133 sq km Jukwa Concession. Ghana Gold plans this month to begin mining in their new target zone within the Jukwa where test results have reached 2.5 gpt.

Houston Lake Mining, Inc. is an advanced mining exploration company whose shares trade on the TSX Venture Exchange. The Company is actively exploring for the rare metals lithium, cesium, tantalum, and rubidium. Currently, Houston Lake Mining is focusing on their 100 percent owned and optioned Pakeagama Rare Metals Project in northwestern Ontario, Canada. The Company has a significant interest with platinum group elements (PGEs) and gold - in northwestern Ontario. Houston Lake Mining is based in Val Caron, Ontario.
The Company's goal is to become a producer - either by developing their 100 percent owned and optioned properties or through acquisition of later staged, highly prospective properties. Houston Lake Mining has three projects: Tib Lake, West Cedartree, and Pakeagama Lake.
Tib Lake is a PGE project located near Thunder Bay, Ontario. It consists of a single property spanning 2,464 hectares. It is 15 km away from a North American Palladium mine and concentrator. The Company is currently looking for a Joint Venture (JV) partner to carry the project forward.
West Cedartree is a gold project located near Kenora, Ontario. It consists of eight contiguous properties totaling 1,675 hectares, covering a 6 km strike length of the key geology. The project hosts several gold zones; three are significant: Angel Hill, Dogpaw Lake No. 1 Vein and Dubenski.
Pakeagama Lake is a rare-metals project located near Red Lake, Ontario. The project encompasses three contiguous properties. The rare metals being sought include cesium, tantalum, lithium and rubidium. Houston Lake Mining is presently advancing the project independently.
In January, Houston Lake Mining announced that they signed a definitive agreement to sell, with selling 100 percent interest in their 1,675-hectare West Cedartree Gold Project to Coventry Resources Ltd. (CYY.V). Coventry owns the Cameron Gold deposit, located 12 km away and their Rainy River Project located 80 km away. Under terms of the agreement, Houston Lake Mining will receive total consideration currently valued at approximately $1.22 million.

Santa Fe Petroleum, Inc. (SFPI)
CrushTheStreet.com, Center Stage Stocks, RockingPennyStocks, ShazamStocks, StockOrange, Wyatt Investment Research, Penny Stock Rumble, and Pennystocktweeters.com reported recently on Santa Fe Petroleum, Inc. (SFPI), here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Listed on the OTCBB, Santa Fe Petroleum, Inc. is a junior oil and gas exploration company based in Plano, Texas. The Company is concentrating on the development of the Barnett Shale and Marble Falls reservoirs on their leasehold interests in central Texas. Santa Fe's goal is to look for undeveloped oil and gas fields that may be in a trend of known producing formations. This strategy offers the distinct potential for virgin reservoir pressures still untapped. This greatly strengthens the opportunity to capture commercial quantities of oil and gas reserves.
Santa Fe Petroleum manages all aspects of their business. This includes mineral interest leasing; to drilling and operating of the wells; and the design, installation, and management of gas line collection systems that carry gas production to market.
In December 2009, Santa Fe drilled a test well in the Barnett "Oil Window". The results show oil exists in a porous blanket type formation and is 101 feet thick. Weatherford Laboratories calculations of the "oil-in-place" as determined from the Shale Rock Properties (SRP) measurements of the core samples is 1.6 million barrels over a 100 feet thick Barnett Shale formation on an 80 acre location spacing, or 20,000 Barrels per acre.
The petroleum engineer hired by Santa Fe determined that there should be five wells per drilling location (each, a Project). Santa Fe's objective is to lease upwards of a minimum of 20,000 acres in the area of the test well for their drilling and growth plan over the next few years. This will give the Company a major project for drilling the Barnett Shale and Marble Falls formations.
Concerning the Marble Falls Prospect, the test well drilled by Santa Fe in December 2009 has approximately 175 feet of thickness through the Marble Falls formation at its location. Due to the thickness in the test well location and the production results from the horizontal wells, Santa Fe is considering whether it will drill the next well in their acreage area as a horizontal well in the Marble Falls formation.
The Company's primary assets upon the closing are contracts to purchase leases and top leases in the area totaling approximately 2,732+/- acres (including a 76+/- acre test well location owned by their wholly owned subsidiary, Santa Fe Land). The leases are estimated to hold an approximate 80 percent Net Revenue Interest (NRI).
In early October 2012, Santa Fe Petroleum announced the closing of their first round of funding. From the initial funds, the Company has continued to work toward the completion of their first five well Project with the execution of a joint operating agreement (JOA) with their affiliate operator, TexTron Southwest, Inc. The JOA was for the fracing of the first of the five wells (the Test Well) in the Barnett Shale formation.
Santa Fe Petroleum, Inc. (SFPI), closed Monday's trading session at $1.75, up 17.45%, on 7,461 volume with 6 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 21,085 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.80/$10.01.

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 $0.357, up 12.44%, on 236,301 volume with 91 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 203,616, and its 52-week low/high is $0.161/$0.65.
International Stem Cell Corp. was pleased to announce positive results today from their in vivo 12-week pre-clinical Parkinson's disease study of therapeutic potential for the company's proprietary human parthenogenetic stem cell (hpSC) produced neuronal cells. Very encouraging pre-clinical in vivo results like these are a solid indicator of the potential here for side-stepping all the problems associated with pharmacological solutions, instead opting to fight the scourge neurodegenerative disorder by directly compensating for the degeneration of dopamine-producing neurons.
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.

International Stem Cell Corp., a company specializing in the therapeutic applications of human parthenogenetic stem cells (hpSCs), reported positive 12-week results from its pre-clinical in vivo Parkinson’s disease study. This behavioral study’s primary objective was to demonstrate the therapeutic benefits of neuronal cells derived from a human parthenogenetic stem cell line in a rat model of Parkinson’s disease (PD).
A common neurodegenerative disorder caused by a progressive degeneration of dopamine-producing neurons resulting in gradual dysfunction of the motor system, PD can eventually lead to death. Pharmacological treatments can be useful in the early stages of the disease, but the continuous use of pro-dopaminergic medication in time becomes ineffective and can even worsen some of the motor symptoms.
In contrast, ISCO’s proprietary technology is based on a homogeneous population of neuronal cells (NCs) derived from homozygous hpSCs through a scalable and efficient method. These parthenogenetically derived NCs are cryopreservable and can become neurons once they are implanted into the brain. They hold tremendous therapeutic potential not only because they can differentiate into dopamine-producing neurons, but also because they could provide a level of protection to existing neurons affected by the disease.
ISCO utilized a well-established and validated model of PD for its pre-clinical study. The experimental rats with unilateral dopamine (6-OHDA) lesions survived the inoculation of cells into the brain and signs of improvement in rotational behavior of these animals were obvious. Correlational analysis of rotation intensity confirmed a difference between the drug effects in the control group vs. experimental (transplanted) group of animals. Interim results demonstrate that just a single injection of hpSC-derived neuronal cells can lead to a notable slowdown in the progression of the disease.
“This is a very important result for our pre-clinical Parkinson’s program,” Dr. Ruslan Semechkin, Vice President – head of R&D, commented. “The initial in vivo results are very encouraging and show the therapeutic promise of hpSC-derived neuronal cells in the treatment of individuals with Parkinson’s disease. Results from this behavioral study will be presented and discussed together with the results of non-human primate study before the end of the first quarter of 2013″

VIASPACE today announced that Chairman Dr. Kevin Schewe and CEO Dr. Carl Kukkonen gained valuable exposure at the 16th Annual Energy, Utility, and Environment Conference (EUEC) held in Phoenix, Arizona, from Monday, January 28 through Wednesday, January 30, 2013.
Dr. Kukkonen’s presentation, “Giant King™ Grass (GKG) as an Energy Crop in the United States,” was delivered in the “Biomass/Cofiring in Power Plants” session of the “Biofuels and Biomass” conference track. In addition, VIASPACE sponsored a booth in the Convention Exhibit Hall featuring two, towering, harvested examples of Giant King Grass. Dr. Kukkonen and Dr. Schewe also together hosted VIASPACE shareholders for a presentation and question and answer session.
Dr. Kukkonen stated, “The EUEC Meeting, now in its 16th consecutive year, provided an impressive technical program. There were over 1800 attendees and 150 exhibitors including VIASPACE. This year’s conference was focused on safe and clean energy development and the use of U.S. domestic resources. I met with prospective clients and partners to discuss expanding the footprint of Giant King Grass in the United States and elsewhere. My presentation was well received and follow-up discussions have led to new business prospects. The interest in using GKG as a dedicated, continuously renewable bioenergy platform is rapidly accelerating given our recent progress in South Africa, St. Croix, Myanmar, Central America, California and Hawaii.”
Dr. Schewe added, “This was my second major VIASPACE meeting to attend with Dr. Kukkonen and his presentations continue to impress those attending regarding the fact that GKG is the highest yielding, non-food, bioenergy platform crop in the world. Our booth in the Phoenix Convention Center Exhibit Hall was intriguing to those attending and the towering Giant King Grass could be seen from any vantage point throughout the exhibit hall. VIASPACE captured a lot of attention from many parties as a result.”
“Our Monday night meeting with VIASPACE shareholders was a success,” Dr. Schewe continued. “I personally met with shareholders who came to Phoenix from different parts of the country, and candidly answered their questions. Some of these questions and answers are worth sharing because not every shareholder is able to come and meet with us in person.”
Question: Can you comment on the Giant King Grass license and what it means to our Company?
Answer: Dr. Schewe responded, “VIASPACE has the exclusive license to grow, market and sell Giant King Grass in the entire world outside China and Taiwan and this is documented in our public filings. We have established ourselves as the world’s premier experts at growing, handling and utilizing this specific energy crop as the highest yielding bioenergy platform crop in the world. Our strength and security are rooted in the extensive, independent, third-party testing of GKG and secondly, in our reputable expertise in showing and partnering with our customers on how to succeed in its use. Of course there are competing products in the bioenergy universe, but we are moving fast to make GKG the preferred platform product because its extremely high yield makes more economic sense than its competitors.”
Question: When will VIASPACE be profitable?
Answer: Dr. Schewe responded, “This Company has never been run leaner than its current overhead structure. Both our CEO and CFO took one-third salary pay-cuts on October 1, 2012 when VIASPACE became a stand-alone company. I personally have not drawn a salary for all the work that I have done for the Company. Our other employees work as independent contractors and we rigorously control those costs. All that said, given the number and significance of the deals in our pipeline, I personally believe that we can achieve profitability in 2014.”
Question: Is our common stock (VSPC) headed for a reverse split?
Answer: Dr. Schewe responded, “There are no plans for a reverse split this year or in the near future. I currently hold just north of 130,000,000 common VSPC shares and I purchased each and every one of those shares with my hard-earned money. I purchased more than half of those shares on the open market and the rest at a 20% discount to the prior month’s average trading price according to my formal agreement to assist in funding the ongoing operations of the Company. I believe that VIASPACE is somewhat unique among penny stocks at this time because the Chairman of the Board wasn’t given his stock or awarded his stock in exchange for his work, advice or expertise–he personally paid for it and looks at the stock’s value appreciation as does any other common shareholder. If we had adequate corporate revenues at this very moment, my philosophy would be to use that revenue for continued organic corporate growth and to institute a formal share buy-back plan and retire those common shares as we buy them back to decrease the overall share count. Both actions would work together to significantly increase the value of my common shares and everyone else’s. The ONLY circumstance that would ever merit consideration of a reverse split on my watch would be the need to move to a higher exchange because we are growing so fast that we need the financial advantages that only a higher exchange can offer.”
Dr. Schewe, concluded, “I want our shareholders to know that Dr. Kukkonen and I make a great team working together. We are both scientists by training and background, but Carl is focused on expanding the world’s successful use of Giant King Grass as the leading bioenergy platform and I am focused on the business success of our company and growing shareholder value. Perfect timing is everything in the critical success of business, and as we mutually conveyed at the EUEC 2013 Meeting, we believe that the time is perfect for the success of Giant King Grass as the world’s premier bioenergy platform.”

It’s an inconvenient reflection on America’s biggest financial institutions and the agencies designed to watch them. The real estate bubble and eventual crash brought a slew of hearings, all pointing to the same picture: People in high places not doing their job. The bubble of exploding housing prices proved too tempting for many in the business, leading to mortgage investment decisions that were based on price speculation instead of the borrower’s ability to pay or credit worthiness. Loose financing accelerated the fire, drawing in more investors and more buyers.
Like any bubble-based market fueled by speculative greed, as long as money flowed in and prices went up, the illusion had legs. People got rich, which drew in still more people and more money. Speculative individual loans became speculative packages, until much of the industry was resting on a house of cards. Of course, as always happens, the flow of funds eventually slowed, and the market began to realize that the emperor had no clothes. Those who had gotten in were faced with the problem of getting out, and the eventual stampede and collapse took much of the economy with it.
The result of it all has been, and will continue to be, a spate of new regulations designed to ensure that housing loans are based upon sound lending practices versus speculation, although some would say that the problem was never the lack of regulation but rather a lack of enforcement.
Whatever the conclusion, Loans4Less.com, a successful online mortgage broker based in California, finds itself sitting comfortably above the turmoil. As a mortgage broker focused on “A” paper loans, the company is poised for strong growth and is recognized for carefully avoiding the risks of the subprime market. “A” paper loans traditionally require a high credit score, full documentation of income and assets, a low debt-to-income ratio, and a significant down payment. In effect, Loans4Less approaches the market in exactly the way that it should have been approached by all before the housing bubble had a chance to form.
