The QualityStocks
Daily Stock List


Catalyst Copper Corp. (CCY.V)

Today we are reporting on Catalyst Copper Corp. (CCY.V), here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Listed on the TSX Venture Exchange, Catalyst Copper Corp. engages in the acquisition, exploration, and development of mineral properties, mainy copper and base metals in Mexico. The Company formerly went by the name SVIT Gold Corp. They changed their name to Catalyst Copper Corp. in January of 2010. The Company is based in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Catalyst Copper's current focus is the La Verde copper property. This property is in the Sierra Madre del Sur approximately 320 kilometers west of Mexico City in Michoacán State. Michoacán is rich in natural resources as well as agriculturally diverse. Mining is a leading industry in the state, with sizeable production of gold, silver, zinc, iron and copper.

La Verde consists of two claims, Capire and Unificación Santa Maria, consisting of approximately 16,900 hectares. Copper mineralization was first identified on the Sierra del Marqués (the intrusive now called La Verde) in the early 1900s.

The La Verde copper porphyry mineralization has undergone exploration since the 1970s. This has resulted in the discovery of two mineralized copper zones: East Hill and West Hill. La Verde has an exposed porphyry copper system amenable to open pit mining with two known zones of porphyry style copper ± gold ± molybdenum mineralization.

In April, Catalyst Copper announced that, further to their Press Release dated March 4, 2013, Catalyst and their wholly owned Mexican subsidiary, Minera Hill 29 S.A. de C.V., entered into a Purchase Option Agreement dated April 9, 2013 with certain subsidiaries of Teck Resources Ltd.  Catalyst has an option to acquire indirectly Teck's interest in the La Verde property, subject to TSX-V approval.

The La Verde property is in an area with excellent infrastructure - power, rail and water. Major upside potential remains for the two known zones of porphyry style copper, gold and silver mineralization as drill programs have shown both deposits remain open to depth and along strike.

Catalyst Copper Corp. (CCY.V), closed Thursday's session at $0.04, even for the day, on 15,000 volume. The stock's 52-week low/high is $0.04/$0.09.

Hondo Minerals Corp. (HMNC)

OtcWizard and FeedBlitz reported previously on Hondo Minerals Corp. (HMNC), and today we choose to highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Trading on the OTC Markets' OTCQB, Hondo Minerals Corp. engages in the acquisition of mines, mining claims and mining real estate in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, with mineral reserves consisting of precious metals or non-ferrous metals. Since early 2010, Hondo has been constructing and developing a plant designed to process precious and base metals in the Tennessee and Schuylkill Mines in the Wallapai Mining District near Chloride, Mohave County, Arizona. This property is the host of what once was the largest producer of silver in Arizona history. Hondo Minerals has their corporate headquarters in Addison, Texas.

The Company's primary focus is the processing of the tailings pile at the mouth of the Tennessee Mine. This includes approximately a one million ton tailings pile containing different amounts of lead, zinc, gold, silver, and other concentrations of metal. This is next to the Schuylkill Mine. Hondo Minerals also owns assorted mining claims in Colorado and Utah. However, none is operational as of January 31, 2013. Hondo owns 540 acres of mineral rights and an additional 720 acres of minerals claimed.

Early independent testing has shown the Tennessee Mine has approximately a million tons of tailings and dump material. These can produce commercial amounts of gold and silver using the Company's exclusive technology above ground. The Tennessee Mine has as much as 40 percent of the historically proven veins intact underground. Therefore, Hondo believes the Tennessee Mine offers long-range opportunities for continued growth through its underground reserves. The Tennessee Mine operated from the late 1800s until 1947; it produced lead, zinc, gold as well as silver.

Today, Hondo Minerals announced that the Company entered into a binding Letter of Intent (LOI) with Crowncorp Investments Corp., a Texas corporation, for the sale of 100 percent of Hondo Minerals' assets and issued and outstanding stock for a purchase price of $88 million. This includes $13 million in working capital to be retained in the Company post-closing.

Axion Power International, Inc. (AXPW)

SmarTrend Newsletters, Profit Confidential, SmallCapVoice, and AllPennyStocks reported previously on Axion Power International, Inc. (AXPW), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Founded in 2003, Axion Power International, Inc. is the industry leader in the field of lead-acid-carbon energy storage technologies. The Company develops, designs, manufactures and sells advanced energy storage components and devices based on their patented PbC Technology™. The PbC® battery is a hybrid device that uses the standard lead acid battery positive electrode and a supercapacitor negative electrode that is made of activated carbon. Axion Power International lists on the OTC Markets' OTCQB.  

Their subsidiary, Axion Power Battery Manufacturing, Inc., conducts the Company's operations at their battery plant located in New Castle, Pennsylvania. Axion's future goal, after filling their plant's lead-carbon battery production capacity, is to become the leading supplier of carbon electrode assemblies for the worldwide lead-acid battery industry.

The Company's PbC® prototypes offer several key performance advantages over conventional lead-acid batteries. These advantages include excellent partial state-of-charge performance, substantially longer life in string applications with minimal battery management, significantly better charge acceptance (10 - 20 times depending on use of the battery), as well as much faster recharge rates. Advantages also include significantly longer cycle lives in deep discharge applications; reduced premature failures and warranty claims and more environmentally friendly (significantly less lead).

Concerning the company's PbC Technology™, the full technical description is a "multi-celled asymmetrically supercapacitive lead-acid-carbon hybrid battery." Like a lead-acid battery, Axion Power's battery consists of a series of cells. However, within the individual cells, their construction is more complex. The negative electrodes in lead-acid batteries are simple sponge lead plates. Axion's negative electrodes are five-layer assemblies that consist of a carbon electrode, a corrosion barrier, a current collector, a second corrosion barrier and a second carbon electrode. They then sandwich together these electrode assemblies with conventional separators and positive electrodes to make their battery. It is filled with an acid electrolyte, sealed, and connected in series to the other cells.

Recently, the Company announced that they completed, and started operating, their new improved continuous roll carbon sheeting line. The carbon sheet is a vital component of Axion's proprietary negative electrode. To date, it has been manufactured by hand utilizing many identical stations to provide enough carbon sheet to satisfy existing PbC® battery production needs. An automated production system was the long established goal; this second generation continuous-roll carbon sheeting production line, when coupled with the Company's robotic negative electrode production line, completely automates the manufacturing process.

This week, Axion Power International announced plans to release their results for First Quarter 2013 before the market opens in New York on Thursday, May 16, 2013. Their management team will host a conference call to discuss the Company's financial results on the same day, at 11:00 am ET.

Axion Power International, Inc. (AXPW), closed Thursday's session at $0.26, down 0.38%, on 184,550 volume with 32 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 213,501 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.2001/$0.4549.

Dr. Rubanyi also summarizes the knowledge gained in the last 15 years of pre-clinical and clinical research and development initiatives in the field of therapeutic angiogenesis using growth factor proteins and genes.

“I also described in some detail the specific insights that our team, first at Schering AG (now part of Bayer Healthcare) and now at Cardium, has gained in the course of the development of Generx, one of the most advanced therapeutic angiogenesis product candidates,” Dr. Rubanyi stated in the press release. “These lessons have been invaluable and they have been incorporated into the trial design of the Generx ASPIRE pivotal phase 3 clinical study now underway at several leading cardiovascular centers in the Russian Federation.”

Generx is Cardium’s interventional cardiology-focused product candidate currently in development as a non-surgical option for the treatment of a medical condition termed cardiac microvascular insufficiency (CMI).

The Aristocrat Group Corp. (ASCC) to Line Up Launch Events for Vodka’s Upcoming Debut

The Aristocrat Group Corp. is pushing hard to finalize its launch strategy as it waits for final federal approval on the label and bottle design of its new ultra-premium vodka. Luxuria Brands—the company’s brand management division—is currently in talks with clubs and venues in Las Vegas and Los Angeles about hosting official premiere events celebrating the release of Luxuria’s debut vodka.

“We’re targeting party hotspots in L.A. and Vegas because they’re destinations on the cutting edge of celebrity culture and nightlife,” stated ASCC CEO Robert Federowicz. “Our executive leadership has cultivated relationships with club owners and hospitality managers that can help us put on top-flight premiere events to spread the word about our new liquor products across the country.”

According to today’s press release, ASCC is in active talks with venues suitable for large roll-out events featuring popular DJs and bottle service; exactly the kind of events that attract cultural tastemakers. The company sees the successful debut of its American-made ultra-premium vodka as the foundation of its growing brand management business. U.S. sales of super-premium vodkas, which typically retail around $30 a bottle, have risen 32 percent in the last two years to $1.2 billion, according to industry trade group the Distilled Spirits Council (DISCUS).

GNCC Capital, Inc. (GNCP) Nears Acquisition of Largest Project To-Date

Approximately two months ago, GNCC Capital announced that it was evaluating the potential acquisition of a gold exploration property. Notably, this property is significantly larger and more developed than any other exploration property in the company’s present portfolio.

GNCC Capital today told investors that it anticipates completing this acquisition very shortly, following extensive due diligence and deliberations. Completing this acquisition will significantly increase the company’s size and its exposure to the gold sector.

Emphasizing its bullish outlook on gold over the medium and long term, the company reaffirmed its commitment to the gold sector and said it views the recent dip in gold prices as an opportunity. GNCC Capital is solely focused on properties that meet its criteria for low-cost extraction.

This acquisition will be funded through the issuance of a combination of new Preferred Stock in the company and long term loan notes. GNCC Capital remains committed to its long-standing pledge not to issue additional shares of its Common Stock.

Upon completion of this acquisition, GNCC Capital will substantially increase the amount of the existing $1 million credit facility from Diamond Peak and source additional available credit facilities, should it so require.

In other news, GNCC Capital said it is completing a new and updated web site as well as creating a social media platform, as part of a recently initiated plan to boost investor awareness of the company.

VistaGen Therapeutics, Inc. (VSTA) Positioned to Benefit from Multiple Monetization Options

Stem cell technology has traditionally been associated with therapeutic regeneration, using these basic building blocks of life to generate new cells that can replace damaged cells. Potential therapeutic applications run the gamut from the replacement of damaged nerve cells to the generation of new heart or liver tissue. However, VistaGen Therapeutics, which is in fact involved in researching and developing therapeutic applications, is best known for a totally different but no less important application of stem cell technology.

Stem cells, in addition to therapeutic applications, can allow scientists to generate mature human cells right in the laboratory; cells that can then be used to efficiently screen drugs for possible toxicity without going through the time and expense involved in human clinical trials, and this is just what VistaGen is focused on doing. The company’s proprietary Human Clinical Trials in a Test Tube stem cell based drug assay platform provides a major advantage to anyone involved in the extremely expensive and risky process of new drug development.

In particular, VistaGen plans to use the technology itself to build a pipeline of drug rescue variants, drugs that have important therapeutic potential but have been shelved due to heart or liver toxicity issues. VistaGen is convinced that it can rescue some of these drugs, using their unique in-lab testing system to economically tweak them, maintaining their demonstrated efficacy while removing their toxicity. VistaGen can then enjoy significant economic participation rights as the new drug is taken to market.

Clearly there are also other rich options the company may soon find itself considering. A powerful technology such as this could result in billions of dollars saved, by helping to avoid the massive costs involved in going to market with a fatally flawed new drug, and such a tool, once finalized, could carry huge licensing potential. In addition, VistaGen could easily become a takeover target, as large pharmaceutical companies look for quick ways to fill profit gaps left by expiring patents.
