Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (MEEC)

MissionIR, SeriousTraders, TopPennyStockMovers, Greenbackers, Marketbeat, Wall Street Resources, NBT Equities Research, and PennyStocks24 reported on Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (MEEC), and we report on the Company as well, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

OTCQB-listed, Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. is a developing leader in mercury emissions control technology for the worldwide coal-power industry. The Company develops and employs patented and proprietary technologies to remove mercury from coal-power plant emissions. Midwest Energy Emissions concentrates on the delivery of mercury capture technologies to power plants and other industrial coal-burning units in North America, Europe, and Asia. The Company has its corporate office in Lewis Center, Ohio.

Midwest Energy Emissions utilizes patented technology that has been shown to attain mercury removal levels compliant with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Mercury and Air Toxic Standards (MATS) rule, at an appreciably lower cost and with less operational impact than methods now used. This is while preserving the ability for customers to recycle and sell fly-ash for beneficial use.

The Company’s proprietary SEA™ (Sorbent Enhancement Additive) technology delivers a flexible, tunable solution. It permits the global coal-power industry to easily comply with new, highly restrictive regulations on mercury air emissions. The SEA™ approach to mercury capture is precisely tailored for each application to complement a customer’s fuel kind and boiler configuration for best results.

Midwest Energy Emissions has acquired all patent rights for its Sorbent Enhancement Additive (SEATM) mercury emissions control technology from the Energy & Environmental Research Center Foundation (EERCF of Grand Forks, North Dakota). It acquired the rights for $2.5 million and 925,000 shares of common stock in Midwest Energy Emissions. EERCF is an organization that works to provide innovative solutions to the world’s energy and environmental challenges.

Recently, Midwest Energy Emissions provided its financial results for Q3 ended September 30, 2017. Total Revenues in Q3 2017 were $8.4 million versus $11.8 million in Q3 2016. This decrease is mainly because of optimization efforts undertaken over the past year with the Company’s customers and also lower capacity factors seen at some customer sites resulting in reduced product needed to keep its customers in MATS compliance.

Operating Income in Q3 2017 was $1.0 million, versus an Operating Income of $1.7 million in Q3 2016. This decrease was mainly because of lower product sales over the same quarter the year prior. Net Income in Q3 2017 was $0.9 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, versus a Net Loss of $9.3 million, or ($0.19) per diluted share, in Q3 2016.

Midwest Energy Emissions secured its first contract in Canada this past October. The initial purchase order, valued at roughly $700,000, will include the installation of its proprietary Sorbent Enhancement Additive (SEA™) Technology servicing the front end of four new electric generating units (EGUs). Midwest Energy Emissions expects further geographic expansion to help smooth out seasonal fluctuations that are usually experienced because of varying power demands.

Midwest Energy Emissions is adding a new product to its proven, cost-effective mercury capture program, which will lessen mercury emissions by preventing scrubber reemission events. The design of the product is specifically for coal-fired power utilities with wet scrubbers to help remove mercury and other metals from the scrubber.

Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (MEEC), closed Wednesday's trading session at $0.275, up 1.85%, on 8,200 volume with 5 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 72,268 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.20/$1.28.

The Vizcachitas Property encompasses a porphyry copper-molybdenum system with alteration delineated over 3.0 km in a north-south direction and 1.5 km in an east-west direction. Within this altered zone is an area of strongly-leached capping, copper oxide and sulfide and molybdenum mineralization encompassing an area measuring about 2 km in a north-south direction and 1 km in an east-west direction.

This past December, Los Andes Copper announced the appointment of Mr. Ricardo Palma C. as Vice President of Development for the Company and Executive President for Compañia Minera Vizcachitas Holding, Los Andes Copper’s operating subsidiary in Chile. Mr. Palma C. is a Mining Engineer with greater than four decades of experience.

Before Los Andes Copper, Mr. Palma C. was General Manager (Division Chief Executive Officer) of Codelco's Andina Division located in the same area as Vizcachitas.

In addition, in December, Los Andes Copper announced the results of the metallurgical testwork performed by SGS and coordinated and overseen by Empirica Consultores on the Company's 100 percent owned Vizcachitas copper-molybdenum porphyry project in Central Chile.

Overall, copper recoveries remain at greater than 90 percent utilizing a coarser grind size versus historical test work. Rock competence or hardness and resulting energy consumption is in line with similar deposits in Chile.

Coarser grind size lessens power requirements. It also improves water recovery and boosts throughput in the mills. The optimization will be captured in Los Andes Copper’s anticipated Q1 2018 Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA).

Los Andes Copper Ltd. (LSANF), closed Wednesday's trading session at $0.236, even for the day. The average volume for the last 60 days is 3,324 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.1373/$0.3405.

Indoor Harvest Corp. (INQD)

OTPicks, Penny Stock General, CFN Media Group, Cannabis Financial Network News, MassiveStockProfits, Orbit Stocks, SmallCapVoice, Fast Money Alerts, Stock Shock and Awe, and PennyPickAlerts reported earlier on Indoor Harvest Corp. (INQD), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Indoor Harvest  Corp. is a developer of personalized cannabis medicines. In addition, the Company is a provider of advanced cultivation technology, methods, and processes. Indoor Harvest provides the cannabis industry production platforms for Building Integrated Agriculture (BIA) production. Indoor Harvest is headquartered in Houston, Texas. 

Indoor Harvest entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger with Alamo CBD, on August 4, 2017. The plan completed a six-month process of work, transitioning the Company into a producer of cannabis for research and pharmaceutical development. Indoor Harvest’s patent pending aeroponic methods allow for the production of chemically consistent, contaminate free cannabis, economically at scale. 

Indoor Harvest is currently a pending applicant via its acquisition of Alamo CBD, to produce cannabis, under the Texas Compassionate Use program. In addition, Indoor Harvest is preparing an application to produce cannabis under the Controlled Substance Act. 

Additionally, Indoor Harvest is finalizing plans with investors and developers to build facilities in the States of Arizona and Colorado. Indoor Harvest’s intention is to produce revenue from its developed facilities by way of leasing and licensing of its technology and methods.

Zoned Properties, Inc. and Indoor Harvest announced this past October that the two companies entered into a Binding Letter of Intent (LOI) outlining three independent agreements to complete research and development projects for licensed medical marijuana facilities to be situated in Tempe, Arizona, Parachute, Colorado, and Stockdale, Texas or other location to be determined after approval of a provisional license under the Texas Compassionate Use program.

Zoned Properties is a strategic real estate development firm. Its chief mission is to identify, develop, and lease sophisticated, safe and sustainable properties in developing industries, including the licensed medical marijuana industry. 

In October, Indoor Harvest also announced that it chose Harvest Air, LLC as its HVAC partner to develop integrated solutions for precision cannabis production. Harvest Air has a patent pending HVAC system. It uses air-to-air economization to allow producers the ability to use outside air to cool and dehumidify the cultivation environment, without bringing that outside air into the cultivation environment. The result is precise control of the cultivation environment. This is with the lowest operational cost among all other qualified systems.

Harvest Air is a developer of HVAC technology specific to the Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) industry, focused around its patent pending air-to-air economization system.

Recently, Indoor Harvest announced that it chose BIOS Lighting as its exclusive LED development partner for its efforts in Arizona, Colorado, and Texas. The two Companies plan to collaborate, alongside Harvest Air, towards the development of a fully integrated platform.

Sixty Six Oilfield Services Inc. (SSOF), with headquarters in New York, has been a leading industry expert in the drilling equipment sector of the oil and gas industry for nearly six decades. The company's sales and rental department provides solutions for domestic and international markets with core offerings that include a wide variety of customized drilling rigs and other select equipment. Sixty Six Oilfield Services and its best-in-class customer service ensures client satisfaction with the right inventory on hand at the right time for the right price for the specified job.

The company showed strong growth in 2017 with final year-end net revenues estimated at $1.142m on gross sales of $5.957m, a healthy improvement of 38 percent in gross sales and 33 percent in net revenue. Executive Vice President Jim Frazier, who is focusing solely on the development of the oilfield service sector, said the company is well positioned to capitalize on a strengthening global oil market with two potential oil rig sales expected to generate estimated gross sales of $11M to $15M in the first half of fiscal year 2018.

As the energy sector continues strong growth in 2018, the company is well positioned to capitalize on the global trend and will continue to be aggressive in the marketplace. The company projects its oilfield business will experience growth of 45 percent to 65 percent through normal increases in volume and marketing.

"As the oil equipment industry evolves, we are excited by the opportunity to grow, expand and become an even larger player in the market," Frazier said. "Our plan is to substantially increase Company value through an expansion of services and acquisition, resale and lease of more equipment for the oil drilling industry. This move will allow our strong management and executive team to rapidly grow the Company with our proven technical and logistical track record of high performance."

Sixty Six Oilfield Services is now a third-generation heavy oil field equipment company founded by J.C. Houck in Oklahoma in 1959. The company is focused on supplying the oil industry with custom drilling rigs, heavy-weight drill pipe, drill collars, pup joints, pony collars, handling tools, tubing, casing, blow-out preventers, engines, compressors and other select equipment to customers world-wide through its facilities in Oklahoma City, Germany and Dubai.

Sixty Six Oilfield Services has also announced plans to expand its portfolio by taking advantage of improving market conditions in the global marketing/advertising and mobile technology sectors. The company has identified acquisition targets for its new marketing media business, Chief Executive Officer Dave T. Ho said, noting the "re-engineered Company creates a more balanced portfolio that is globally competitive."

Ho, who also serves as president and is on the board of directors, is a marketing veteran with over 20 years as a business owner and marketing executive. He holds an MFA from Yale University and has been a partner in two successful marketing agencies in Connecticut – Design Trust Inc. and York & Chapel, Corp., where he is currently president.

The company's new business plan includes developing and acquiring successful advertising, marketing and digital businesses while continuing to grow the oilfield services business at market pace, Ho said. This strategy allows for optimal diversification and takes advantage of relationships the company already has in place.

"We plan to create shareholder value by building an agency that is on the vanguard of the growing demand for Customer Experience Management (CXM)," Ho said. "This discipline applies customer analytic technology to map the entire customer experience journey, to build brand loyalty. Our focus on customer-centric models transforms business intelligence and will help our clients build lifetime customer engagement in order to compete in the new digital marketplace." Disclaimer

Epazz, Inc. (OTC: EPAZ), a leading provider of blockchain cryptocurrency mobile apps and cloud-based business software solutions, announced today that the company will release its social media blockchain app on June 30, 2018. The app allows users to store data in the blockchain and retrieve it from the blockchain, making it unnecessary for users to store the data on their mobile devices.

Epazz, Inc. (EPAZ), is a leading provider of blockchain cryptocurrency mobile apps and cloud-based business software solutions that specializes in providing customized web applications to the corporate world, higher education institutions and the public sector. The company's strategic expansion into the investment fintech software space can be seen in the recent acquisition of the android app CryptoFolio, which securely tracks and manages Bitcoin and Altcoin portfolios. Epazz, Inc., which acquired the software rights, source code and user base of CryptoFolio, plans to add additional cryptocurrencies and languages to the app, along with an iOS version to attract more users.

Epazz also offers ZenaPay Bitcoin wallet, which has been downloaded more than 10,000 times since its launch on the Play Store. A subsidiary of Epazz, ZenaPay is a financial technology company that offers a unique, secure and reliable Bitcoin payment app, allowing consumers to acquire Bitcoin at the point-of-sale. The consumer can then use this digital currency to make a purchase with ease. The CryptoFolio business model provides free features to attract users and then allows users to purchase additional features from $1.99 to $5.99 each. CryptoFolio is a great add-on app for ZenaPay, and future versions of CryptoFolio will include an option to download ZenaPay.

"We are starting 2018 with ZenaPay on both major mobile apps' platforms," said Shaun Passley, PhD, CEO and founder of Epazz. "We are in the processing of developing new blockchain technology which will introduce an additional source of revenue streams for our company."

Epazz technology makes it easy to convert legacy systems into cloud business process software, for which the company then charges an annual subscription fee. Epazz has acquired 11 software companies that have converted or are in the process of converting their legacy software products to cloud software using Epazz technology. Epazz then markets the new cloud-based solutions to new and existing customers.

Epazz's unique BoxesOS™ applications can create virtual communities for enhanced communication, provide information and content for decision-making, and create a secure marketplace for any type of commerce. Epazz has also filed a provisional patent for its new blockchain smart legal contract technology that reduces fraud in business transactional contracts. The technology allows for a transactional contract to become a living contract that is tracked and traced; it also verifies that a section of terms within a contract are followed and that all parties of an agreement obey the terms of the contract.

"Blockchain-based technology is the future of the Internet," Passley said. "Epazz will add blockchain technology to all of our products in the coming months using our blockchain cloud platform, BoxesOS. The company has been working with customers to understand the best uses of blockchain, and we are excited about filing the first of many blockchain patents, with many more to come." Disclaimer

IEG Holdings Corp. (IEGH)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight IEG Holdings Corp. (IEGH). Today, IEG Holdings Corp. closed trading at $0.2625, even for the day, on 19,600 volume with 3 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 97,566 and its 52-week low/high is $0.14/$4.19.

IEG Holdings Corporation (OTCQB: IEGH) announced today that, after considering the potential risks and benefits, it will not pursue a cryptocurrency offering or any other cryptocurrency-related ventures at this time. IEG Holdings will continue to monitor the developing regulatory landscape surrounding this new technology and may consider cryptocurrency opportunities in the future.

IEG Holdings Corp. (IEGH) is a publicly traded, global leader in consumer finance providing small-sized online personal loans in the United States via a state-licensed operating subsidiary, Investment Evolution Corporation, under the consumer brand "Mr. Amazing Loans." Based in Las Vegas, the company originates consumer loans in 20 states: Alabama, Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin via its online platform and distribution network. IEGH is a licensed direct lender with state licenses and/or certificates of authority to lend in each state and offers all loans within the prevailing statutory rates.

Mr. Amazing Loans is a leading FinTech company specializing in dedicated loan amounts of $5,000 to $10,000 offered directly to consumers through an easy-to-use website known for its professional interaction with applicants. All loans are originated, processed and serviced out of the company's Las Vegas corporate offices, eliminating the need for physical locations in each state where IEGH is licensed to conduct business. The company's loans are unsecured consumer loans that mature in five years at interest rates significantly less than those of payday lenders. Consumers are able to receive same-day processing and are assured of no hidden or additional fees, no prepayment penalty, with repayment and interest rates fixed at 29.9% or less Annual Percentage Rate (APR) for the life of the loan.

The Center for Responsible Lending states the typical payday loan has rates ranging from 391% to 521% APR on loans that typically range from $100 to $1,000. Conversely, Mr. Amazing Loans's terms are designed with low fixed repayments to fit into consumer budgets with the added goal of helping clients reach a stronger financial position. Loan funds are deposited directly into an approved consumer's checking account and may be approved the same day after necessary application documentation is received.

IEG Holdings has also incorporated Investment Evolution Crypto, LLC., a 100 percent owned subsidiary, and tasked the new company with exploring business opportunities in the cryptocurrency/blockchain industry. Specifically, the subsidiary company will explore the legalities and economic risks of entering into a joint venture with IEGH's other 100 percent owned subsidiary company, Investment Evolution Corporation dba Mr. Amazing Loans. Among the questions to be answered during this development planning stage are whether Mr. Amazing Loans should accept repayment of customer loans in the form of leading crypto/blockchain currencies such as Bitcoin, provide the equivalent of USD $5,000 and $10,000 loans to consumers in cryptocurrencies, and potentially create and issue an Investment Evolution cryptocurrency.

Paul Mathieson, IEG Holdings' chairman and Chief Executive Officer, has over 19 years of finance industry experience in lending, funds management, stock market research and investment banking. He has been a member of the board of directors at IEGH since 2012 and of its subsidiary since 2009. Mathieson founded IEG Holdings Limited in Sydney, Australia, launching the Amazing Loans business in that country in 2005 and then in the United States via IEGC in 2010. He was awarded Ernst & Young's 2007 Australian Young Entrepreneur of the Year (Eastern Region). Mathieson is joined by Carla Cholewinski, who serves as chief operating officer with over 37 years of experience in the finance industry including banking, credit union management, regulatory oversight, debt securitization and underwriting.

Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V:PQE) (OTCQX:PQEFF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Petroteq Energy Inc. (PQEFF). Today, Petroteq Energy Inc. closed trading at $1.40, off by 3.01%, on 416,159 volume with 460 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 110,102, and its 52-week low/high is $0.015/$1.8892.

Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSXV: PQE; OTCQX: PQEFF; Frankfurt: A2DYWC), a company focused on the development and implementation of proprietary technologies for the energy industry, is pleased to announce the planned opening of marketing offices in key strategic international markets, initially targeting Switzerland, Russia and Ukraine.

Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTCQB: PQEFF), with headquarters in Canada, seeks to create the world's largest pure-play cobalt exploration and development company. The company's current focus is on its Greater Cobalt Project located in Silver Centre, Ontario. The company is also in the midst of a three-way merger with Cobalt One Ltd. and CobalTech Mining Inc. and on completion First Cobalt will control over 10,000 hectares of prospective land and 50 historic mining operations in the Cobalt Camp in Ontario, Canada, as well as a mill and a permitted refinery facility.

The merger agreements with Cobalt One Ltd. and CobalTech Mining Inc., announced earlier this year, will result in a combined land position of more than 10,000 hectares (nearly 25,000 acres) in the Cobalt Camp containing approximately 50 past cobalt/silver producers and working mines. Initial test results from a mineralogical assessment of sample material taken from various historical mines located throughout the Cobalt Camp show both cobalt-rich and silver-rich mineralization styles. Samples taken at the former Bellellen mine, located within the Greater Cobalt Project in Ontario, show high grade cobalt assays, prompting First Cobalt to increase its drilling program at that site.

Petroteq Energy Inc. is moving quickly to leverage its potential against an economic background that estimates global consumption for refined cobalt is set to grow at an average rate of approximately 5 percent per annum for the next 10 years. The electric vehicle market, in particular, is driving this sector since more than 50 percent of the world's current production of cobalt is used in the manufacture of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. The global lithium-ion battery market, as estimated by Zion Market Research, indicates the value at around USD $31 billion in 2016 and is expected to generate revenue of nearly USD $68 billion by end of 2022, growing at a compound annual growth rate of slightly above 17 percent.

The company's clear pathway to production and cash flow generation includes being one of only four fully permitted cobalt extraction refineries in Canada with significant material and processing infrastructure on site. With the price of cobalt increasing significantly and its importance in the growing battery market underpinning a strong long-term demand forecast, Petroteq Energy Inc. and its mining interests are primed for success.

Petroteq Energy Inc. President and CEO Trent Mell, a mining executive and capital markets professional with extensive international transactional experience, is joined by a team of reputable and seasoned deal-makers, mine builders and mine operators with decades of global experience in exploration, business development, geoscience, engineering and finance.

Founded in 1999, ChineseInvestors.com, Inc. (CIIX) has become a leading financial information website for Chinese-speaking investors in the United States and China. Recognizing unprecedented opportunities in the U.S. cannabis industry, CIIX is also laying the groundwork to capitalize on growing demand for cannabidiol (CBD)-based nutrition and health products.

Through its primary website, www.ChineseInvestors.com, CIIX offers a variety of investor education products and services, including real-time market commentary, analysis and educational related services in Chinese language character sets; consultative services to smaller private companies considering becoming a public company; and advertising and public relations related support services.

The increasing demand for CBD-based products is a catalyst for innovative business endeavors. To this accord, CIIX has established a three-year development plan to capitalize on the convergence of CBD and the nutrition and health products market in mainland China, where the benefits of CBD oil have not been widely recognized.

Under a wholesale agreement with a reputable CBD health brand, CIIX is launching the world's first online CBD health products store published in the Chinese language. The site, www.ChineseCBDoil.com, caters to a growing number of Chinese people awakening to the numerous health benefits of CBD oil for treatment of a variety of conditions such as anxiety, stress, poor sleep, Alzheimer's disease, and more. CIIX expects to launch this website at the end of January 2017, and plans to sell CBD-infused products via online and in-store.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG). Today, Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions closed trading at $0.0361, off by 2.17%, on 180,238 volume with 29 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 608,233, and its 52-week low/high is $0.0161/$0.12.

Cannabis-focused financial services company Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (OTC: REFG) has created savvy innovations and fast-developing systems to solve cash-handling problems. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/GV8yg. Also today, an article was released on Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions’ Green platform, a top tier digital payment processing system, which is designed to bring legalized cannabis and its cash management for licensed merchants and dispensaries into the world of digital financial services.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG), headquartered in Cheyenne, Wyoming, is a first-tier merchant processing cannabis industry pioneer, offering one of the first and only comprehensive card processing operations of its kind to serve the state-sanctioned medical marijuana industry. The company's state of the art system, which also tracks sales and tax collection, and eliminates the need to deal in cash-only transactions.

Through its robust, closed-loop merchant processing system, the company's unique "StateSourced" proprietary system enables authorized operation under FinCEN parameters and complies with all regulatory frameworks. StateSourced is tailored to deliver full-spectrum merchant processing services, providing the convenience of modern commercial card processing resources and making it the first operation of its kind geared to the legal cannabis industry.

StateSourced is not a prepaid or gift card, which is an important variable for merchants since standard banking institutions have not offered this form of payment processing to the legal cannabis industry. Federal law still considers marijuana illegal under the Controlled Substances Act, although 29 states and the District of Columbia have legalized the plant either for medicinal or recreational uses or both. This restriction has kept financial institutions at bay since most banks are federally insured and haven't been inclined to venture into the nascent industry.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions is able to offer its StateSourced card on a state-by-state basis where the card can be used in purchasing product from a legal, authorized vendor, providing a much-needed option for consumers and businesses alike. In another first, the company is collaborating with First Bitcoin Capital Corporation to integrate First Bitcoin's cryptocurrency ($Weed) with Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions' StateSourced payment gateway. This collaboration will allow state-licensed marijuana establishments across the nation to accept both StateSourced debit cards and cryptocurrencies such as WeedCoin and Bitcoin.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions president and CEO Jeremy Roberts and his executive team are working with state lawmakers to introduce legislation in an effort to address the growing problems in banking for the medical cannabis industry. For companies in the emerging legal cannabis industry, where retail and non-retail transactions such as vendor payments and payroll are almost exclusively paid for with cash, the solutions offered by StateSourced can help businesses avoid the inherent risks associated with a cash-intensive sector. Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions has also signed its first StateSourced contract with a Las Vegas-based vertically integrated marijuana establishment.

"We've completed our transition from development stage to revenue stage," says Roberts. "We have just started our business development efforts and the market is responding very well. We anticipate having many more, similar releases."

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions provides end-to-end management across multiple systems for medicinal marijuana operations. The company solves the fragmentation problem experienced by many of these rapidly growing companies by identifying tools that are important to dispensaries and customizing those tools to meet the specific needs of this unique industry.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE:LXX) (OTCQB:LXRP)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LXRP). Today, Lexaria Bioscience Corp. closed trading at $1.32, off by 5.04%, on 65,017 volume with 145 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 348,167 and its 52-week low/high is $0.27/$2.54.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (OTCQX: LXRP) (CSE: LXX), a drug delivery platform innovator, is pleased to announce that it has commenced its first nicotine in vivo (animal) absorption and tolerability study. The dosing stage is complete and final results are expected within approximately 30 days.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LXRP) has developed and out-licenses its proprietary technology for improved taste, rapidity, and delivery of bioactive compounds, including cannabinoids. Though boasting a wide range of health benefits, cannabinoids are traditionally poorly absorbed by the body's gastrointestinal tract. To achieve higher effectiveness, consumers usually default to smoking. Lexaria provides a superior administration method by delivering hemp oil ingredients – or through locally licensed partners, cannabis oil ingredients – through a patented process within food products.

The key differentiator between Lexaria's products and others on the market is the company's disruptive technology proven to enhance the absorption of orally ingested cannabinoids while improving the "unusual" taste of cannabinoids and allowing for lower overall dosing with higher efficacy. Lexaria is primarily a B2B enterprise, and is in licensing discussions or has existing agreements with companies in Canada, the largest-market states in the USA, and internationally. Lexaria has also developed its own brands partly for demonstration purposes, utilizing its patented technology to infuse hemp oil ingredients within lipids in popular foods. These brands include ViPova™, Lexaria Energy Foods, and TurboCBD™.

In 2015, Lexaria commissioned an independent, third-party lab to test its technology under carefully monitored in vitro conditions. Results showed that the company's technological process and lipid formulation both improve intestinal absorption as much as 500%. Additional follow-up studies in human volunteers suggested that Lexaria's processed, lipid-infused tea may be more effective in an actual gastrointestinal system than in an in vitro simulation with results indicating as much as a 1,000% increase in overall absorption.

Lexaria also has an R&D partnership with the Canadian government's National Research Council. That R&D is expected to characterize molecular bond formation theorized to occur with Lexaria's unique technology between the lipid delivery agents and the bioactive substances it processes and combines. Results from this R&D are expected to support accelerating B2B relationships – not just in the cannabis industry, but also to support new B2B business relationships in the fields of vitamins, NSAIDs, and nicotine delivery. All of these sectors expected to offer additional future growth potential.

Aside from testing, a critical component of Lexaria Bioscience's business model is a strong intellectual property portfolio that utilizes the most commonly used food processing techniques. As of 2017, the company's patent portfolio includes 19 patent applications filed and pending in more than 40 countries around the world. The most recent patent applications expand Lexaria's lipophilic food and beverage composition claims to include the processing of cannabinoids, vitamins, NSAIDs and nicotine in many of the world's most commonly used food processing ingredients. Lexaria is expecting additional new patent awards both in the USA and internationally in 2017 and 2018.

Royalties play a vital role in Lexaria's revenue-generating business model. The company out-licenses its technology (royalty) to third party partners, and has several deals signed and/or pending. The company's growth initiatives are guided by a management team headed by CEO Chris Bunka, a serial entrepreneur who has raised more than $50 million in working capital for the companies he has led over the course of his career. He is supported by a team of professionals with extensive experience in pharmaceutical and bioscience sectors, invention, toxicology, consumer goods, and other relevant skillsets. Disclaimer

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V:FCC) (OTCQB:FTSSF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight First Cobalt Corp. (FTSSF). Today, First Cobalt Corp. closed trading at $0.795, off by 3.90%, on 503,948 volume with 320 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 281,238, and its 52-week low/high is $0.3148/$1.3041.

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX-V: FCC, ASX: FCC, OTCQB: FTSSF) and US Cobalt Inc. (TSX-V: USCO, OTCQB: USCFF) are pleased to announce they have entered into a definitive agreement whereby First Cobalt will acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of US Cobalt pursuant to a plan of arrangement, further enhancing First Cobalt's position as a pure-play North American cobalt company.

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTCQB: FTSSF), with headquarters in Canada, is the largest land owner in the Cobalt Camp in Ontario with control of over 10,000 hectares (nearly 25,000 acres) of prospective land and 50 historic cobalt/silver mines. The company’s assets include a mill and the only permitted cobalt extraction refinery in North America capable of producing battery material, providing an integrated solution for cobalt projects. First Cobalt began drilling in the historic Cobalt Camp in 2017 and seeks to build shareholder value through new discovery and growth opportunities.

First Cobalt’s 2018 $C7 million drilling program, which includes testing different styles of mineralized areas throughout the Cobalt Camp in more than 10 past-producing mines known to contain cobalt, is a significant expansion over its 2017 exploration activities. The company received positive test drill results from the Bellellen mine location, with early results confirming the presence of high-grade cobalt and nickel, prompting First Cobalt to increase its drilling program at that site. A prospecting sampling program of existing muckpiles around the camp’s historic mines, trenches, pits and surrounding bedrock could provide an early production scenario.

First Cobalt Corp. is moving quickly to leverage its potential against an economic background that estimates global consumption for refined cobalt is set to grow at an average rate of approximately 5 percent per annum for the next 10 years. The electric vehicle market, in particular, is driving this sector since more than 50 percent of the world’s current production of cobalt is used in the manufacture of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. The global lithium-ion battery market, as estimated by Zion Market Research, indicates the value at around USD $31 billion in 2016 and is expected to generate revenue of nearly USD $68 billion by end of 2022, growing at a compound annual growth rate of slightly above 17 percent.

First Cobalt is embracing innovation in the mining sector, utilizing a digital compilation of 100-plus years of mining and geological data spanning the historically prolific Cobalt Mining Camp’s lifespan. First Cobalt’s management team is also assessing the ability of artificial intelligence to accelerate the discovery cycle. As a member of the Mineral Exploration Research Centre (MERC) and Metal Earth Project, First Cobalt conducts regional geophysical surveys for geological interpretation of structures controlling cobalt-silver mineralization.

The company’s clear pathway to production and cash flow generation includes being one of only four fully permitted cobalt extraction refineries in Canada with significant material and processing infrastructure on site. With the price of cobalt increasing significantly and its importance in the growing battery market underpinning a strong long-term demand forecast, First Cobalt Corp. and its mining interests are primed for success.

First Cobalt Corp. President and CEO Trent Mell, a mining executive and capital markets professional with extensive international transactional experience, is joined by a team of reputable and seasoned deal-makers, mine builders and mine operators with decades of global experience in exploration, business development, geoscience, engineering and finance.
