Stevia First Corp. (STVF)
Real Pennies, TooNiceStocks, KO PENNY STOCKS, Penny Lane Reports, ElitePennyStocks, and Momentum Hunter reported this month onStevia First Corp. (STVF), and we choose to report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Trading on the OTC Bulletin Board, Stevia First Corp. is an early stage agribusiness based in California's Central valley growing region. The Company is focusing on the industrial-scale production of stevia, an all-natural sweetener. Stevia First is seeking to establish a vertically integrated stevia enterprise in the United States with expertise in stevia seed and tissue propagation, plant breeding, and cultivation. The Company is based in Yuba City, California.
Stevia First's R&D will focus on the creation and propagation of advanced, proprietary varieties of the stevia plant. The stevia plant leaves are the source of safe, natural, zero-calorie extracts used as sweeteners. The Company will seek to develop stevia varieties that optimize sweetness levels, taste, adaptability and ease of cultivation. They will also seek to develop and use cultivation processes that improve efficiency while reducing cost and environmental impact.
Stevia is a plant from the sunflower family that is native to Paraguay. South American natives have used stevia as a sweetener in their raw, unprocessed form for hundreds of years. The Company initially plans to cultivate stevia leaf for sale to processors and refiners that will process and refine stevia extract for consumers and beverage formulators. The leaf of the stevia plant has 9 to 12 sweet-tasting compounds known as steviol glycosides, including Stevioside (STV) and Rebaudioside A. Stevia First customers will extract the best tasting part of the stevia plant to yield nearly 99 percent pure Rebaudioside-A, or Reb A.
Reb A can be 200 to 400 times sweeter than sugar. This is depending on its formulation and use. Reb A has zero calories and does not elicit a glycemic response. Therefore, it is appropriate for diabetics. It is also non-cariogenic, making it safe for teeth. Reb A is heat and pH stable. People can use it the same way they use sugar.
This month, the Company announced their field trials designed to increase the growth of stevia planting in California. Long-term, sustainable growth of the California stevia industry will require thousands of acres of stevia planting. Stevia First is taking steps to enable a major increase of the total acreage of stevia undergoing planting in California. This work is being performed internally, with the view to having acreage that is corporate-grown and additional land that is contracted with local growers.
Moreover, this month, Stevia First announced the appointment of Mr. Richard McKilligan into the role of Controller. Mr. McKilligan will work to establish proactive growth policies.

In August 2011, Tamm announced that they reviewed and approved the Manning heavy oil work program proposed by their farm-in partner. On March 15, 2011, Cougar Oil and Gas Canada, Inc. entered into a multi-phase farm-in agreement with Tamm to define and develop Tamm's 47-section Manning area heavy oil prospect.
In November 2011, Tamm provided an update to the Manning Heavy Oil Project. The Company reached agreements with a private UK Corporation with Major Oilsands Lease holdings in the prospect area and Cougar Oil and Gas Canada. The private corporation holds 61 sections of oil sands lease adjacent to the Tamm lease holdings. Tamm and Cougar terminated their previously announced farm in to negotiate a new agreement with the private Corporation. The private corporation signed a multi-phase farm-in agreement with Tamm to define and develop Tamm's 47-section Manning area heavy oil prospect in parallel with the development of the private corporations 61 sections of land in the Manning area.
In January 2012, Tamm reported that they are moving forward with their Joint Venture/Partnership earlier announced with Cougar Oil and Gas Canada providing technical and operational expertise, while the private UK Oil Company partner provides the capital requirements to develop the Tamm lands in conjunction with their 61 sections of oilsands leases adjacent to the Tamm 55 sections.

Green Technology Solutions, Inc. (GTSO)
The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Green Technology Solutions, Inc. (GTSO). Today, Green Technology Solutions, Inc. closed trading at $2.75, up 5.77%, on 18,275 volume with 30 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 14,992, and its 52-week low/high is $1.02/$8.82.
Green Technology Solutions, Inc. reported forward momentum in talks with veteran mining/excavation firm Diamond V Associates, Inc. today, aimed at partnership/joint venture acquisitions and development of new tungsten prospects, both in the U.S. and around the globe.
Green Technology Solutions, Inc. (GTSO), via GTSO Resources, is an early-stage company poised for rapid growth by feeding the exploding demand for the versatile metal tungsten. With the demand for tungsten now far exceeding supplies, GTSO is capturing the opportunity to link with mining experts around the world, targeting tungsten mining companies for acquisition or joint venture. To date, the company has developed significant relationships with early and mid-stage mining experts and companies in the U.S., China, Africa, and South America.
Why tungsten? It's natural to think of underground wealth in terms of things like gold or silver, oil or natural gas. But the hot underground commodity today is increasingly tungsten, a heavy super-hard grey metal so versatile that it has become virtually indispensable to modern life. Second only to diamonds in terms of measured hardness, it is essential to any type of application requiring toughness, precision, and the ability to withstand heat and wear, from missile parts to armor-piercing tank shells, from drill bits and saw blades to a whole range of electrical components.
The one problem with tungsten is that there simply isn't enough of it. Demand has been growing, as more countries industrialize, but world tungsten production has actually been relatively flat. For years, the tungsten market has been dominated by China, the source of close to 90% of worldwide tungsten production. Today, as China's own growing industries demand more tungsten, they've been cutting back on exports, causing prices to soar.
The price of tungsten jumped 35% in 2011, with steep increases continuing in 2012. It's one of the reasons that Warren Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway unit IMC International Metalworking recently agreed to invest $80 million in a tungsten mining project in South Korea. Global supplies simply can't keep up with global demand. The search for new resources begins now, and GTSO Resources sees itself as leading the way. Disclaimer

Green Technology Solutions today announced it is progressing with discussions on a potential partnership or joint venture with Diamond V Associates. With the due diligence period almost completed, Green Technology Solutions aims acquire and develop new tungsten prospects in the U.S. and around the globe.
The company believes Diamond’s extensive mining experience could be a huge asset as it moves forward to bring new sources of tungsten online. Diamond’s president, W. Kirk Bastian, has accumulated 21 years of experience in the mining and excavation business. The company has extensive contacts in Alaska, the West African nation of Ghana, and other mining hotbeds in a range of minerals.
Green Technology Solutions is already evaluating Diamond’s prospects for tungsten and other metal resources. If a definitive agreement is reached, both companies will start targeting promising new reserves around the world for excavation.
The northwest region of North America is a major focus of the company’s mineral strategy. Last week, one of its representatives conducted site visits and began preliminary due diligence on mining prospects in western Canada.

ProGaming Platforms, developers of a new and advanced online gaming technology that allows a worldwide network of competitive gaming with automated accounting, has a multi-pronged marketing and advertising strategy. Most directly, they will be advertising their gaming platform on gamers’ portals, blogs, and forums, maximizing their exposure to the online gaming community. In addition, they plan to market both their technology and services through a select sales and marketing strategy that involves identifying and contacting key potential online game service providers that most closely meet the company’s licensee profile. They also plan to attend industry trade shows around the world, uncovering new prospects and referrals.
A marketing strategy for an online gaming service requires a clear understanding of associated laws. In the U.S., games of skill are largely distinguished from games of chance by the amount of skill that is involved in winning. Wagering on games of chance is generally prohibited in the U.S. except in clearly defined jurisdictions, but a participant is permitted to wager on his own performance in a game of skill.
The business model of ProGaming Platforms addresses the legal online gaming market, by focusing on games of skill. Although there is no assurance that state regulators won’t choose to interpret anti-gambling statutes in a more restrictive sense, ProGaming considers the use of its platform as supporting games of skill and not gambling under U.S. federal law, nor under the laws of a majority of states. In fact, the company has stated plans to include as part of their licensing agreements a provision precluding the offering of games of skill for a cash reward in those states which prohibit the wagering on one’s own performance in a game of skill.

Colombia Energy Resources, which was formed in 2010 to develop the rich coal resources in South America for export sale to global markets (especially the U.S., for whom 42% of all energy in 2011 came from coal), reported today that the company can look forward to some serious savings as transport costs come down amid the planned infrastructural renovation by the Columbian government and private industry.
The Columbian government’s recently released plan to put some $7.5B into refurbishing and upgrading the country’s rail and river barge system will directly benefit CERX, who will see improved cost structure as both methods will be widely used by the company for moving the company’s hard coking coals to market. CERX has amassed some 25k acres of resource thus far. The Columbian government’s program has seen enthusiastic support from several private companies, with capital placements by three national companies, as well as two companies from Brazil, and one each from Israel and Switzerland.
President of Columbia’s Infrastructure National Agency (ANI), Luis Fernando Andrade Moreno, underscored the drive to obtain as much foreign participation in the effort as possible, describing the planned activity as the most ambitious infrastructure development program ever undertaken in the country’s history. Moreno explained how this is a great opportunity for U.S. companies, as the revitalized rail/river transport infrastructure will help to ease energy prices state side. ANI was created to serve an administrative role in the program roll out/maintenance and the organization puts overall investment in the operation as approaching $7B by 2014 (this figure more than doubled by 2011 to around $4B and looks to go much higher) .
Key among the planned renovation for CERX is the improvement plan for the Magdalena River, where the national government and local municipalities look to spend some $135M over the next four years restoring optimal navigability to approximately 932 miles of river way. Huge news for CERX, who uses the river barge system quite a bit, in fact, this planned expansion should increase overall annual transportation of coal within the country about 157% by 2018, from 35M tons, all the way up to 90M.
Needless to say operators like CERX are glowing right now, as they look forward to significant transportation-related cost improvements across the entire spectrum of the business. Additionally, planned expansion of the nation’s rail system will allow as much as half of the entire coal supply to be moved by train (the rest via river). The rail programs, taken as a whole, should be particularly significant to overall cost reductions, making Columbia an even more attractive place to do business.
The cost equation is significant for any coal developer operating in Columbia, and, according to data out of the Chamber of Infrastructure, the current lack of sufficient multimodal transport adds a whopping 80% to the underlying cost of transportation. The fact that half of the coal should be movable by train (with river barging taking up the remainder), led the Minister of Columbia’s department of Mines and Energy to project that total production nationwide could hit 124M tons by just 2014 (152M by 2020).
CEO of CERX, Ronald G. Stovash, emphasized direct benefits to the company as a result of these improvements, with a huge boost to both long-term growth and underlying profitability margins. Stovash pointed to extensive use of trucks by CERX and asserted that while this was still economical, the cost effectiveness and efficiencies introduced by moving to rail/barging would increase shareholder value substantially.
There is plenty of business still to do in Columbia and CERX aims to be among the top resource consolidators in this space, as the nation contains the richest coal supplies in South America, with some 7B metric tons of recoverable coal reserves. Stovash indicated that as the company transitions, Columbia could move up to being among the lowest cost, metallurgical coal development regions on earth. Stovash tantalized shareholder’s appetite for profit saying that as this transition was carried out, the company would see the savings drop “right to the bottom line.”
