Daily Stock List
Imaging3, Inc. (IMGG)
OTCPicks, PennyTrader Publisher, and MoneyTV reported this month on Imaging3, Inc. (IMGG), and we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Listed on the OTCBB, Imaging3™, Inc. is a leading provider of advanced technology medical imaging devices. The Company has developed a breakthrough medical imaging device that produces 3D medical diagnostic images of virtually any part of the human body in real-time. The Dominion Volumetric Imaging Scanner, the DViS, is a patented mobile fluoroscopy technology that produces high quality 3D images.
Imaging3™ is based in Burbank, California. Dean Janes founded the Company as Imaging Services, Inc. on October 29, 1993. In order to better position the Company for their future direction - away from service and towards providing proprietary medical imaging products - the Company changed their name from Imaging Services, Inc. to Imaging3, Inc. on August 20, 2002.
The 3D images are instantly constructed in real-time; they can be used for any current or new medical procedures in which multiple frames of reference are required to perform medical procedures on or in the human body. The DViS is the only product in existence that can produce a combination of high quality 2D, 3D real-time, and CT imagery in a single device. The unique engineering design significantly reduces exposure to radiation, and provides a small, mobile footprint for easy transport. It accomplishes all of this at a cost of approximately one third of existing CT devices. The DViS' mobile form factor fits through a standard room door. No shielded room is required; the device can be wheeled from OR to ER.
The DViS works on standard 110v wall outlet power. It emulates a 16-Slice CT Scanner at a fraction of the cost. It features Standard 2D Fluoroscopy - still and real-time imagery for diagnostics, and has multiple pivot points for minimal patient movement. Moreover, it is standing load-bearing imaging capable, and offers true 3D real-time high-resolution images.
For the medical establishment, real time rendering increases facility revenues through decreased imaging time. The DViS offers substantial reduction in exposure to radiation, and has broad application across multiple disciplines. It provides image capture at 30 frames per second and it increases the speed and accuracy of existing procedures. It enables less invasive and more precise procedures. The Company's management believes that this multi-function capability will be especially attractive in foreign markets, where the cost of a CT scanner is beyond the means of most hospitals and healthcare centers.
While Imaging3™ began as a service provider, the Company quickly expanded to include equipment and parts sales, both new and renewed. Today, Imaging3 is the largest remanufacturer of C-arms in the world. A C-arm is an integral component of a fluoroscopic imaging system used for various types of surgery. The Company is also the largest distributor of C-arm tables in the U.S.
Imaging3, Inc. (IMGG), closed on Tuesday at $0.01, up 4.17%, on 879,430 volume with 24 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 1,687,785. The 52-week low/high is $0.01/$0.12.
Searchlight Minerals Corp. (SRCH)
SmarTrend Newsletters and Stock Analyzer reported earlier on Searchlight Minerals Corp. (SRCH), and we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Searchlight Minerals Corp. is an exploration stage company engaged in the acquisition and exploration of mineral properties and slag-reprocessing projects. The Company is focusing on their two mineral projects. One is the Clarkdale Slag Project and the other is the Searchlight Gold Project. The Clarkdale Slag Project is the more advanced of the two ongoing projects that the Company is pursuing. Searchlight Minerals is based in Henderson, Nevada; the Company's shares trade on the OTC Bulletin Board.
The Clarkdale Slag Project is in Clarkdale, Arizona. It is a reclamation project to recover precious and base metals from the reprocessing of slag produced from the smelting of copper ore mined at the United Verde Copper Mine in Jerome, Arizona. Searchlight Minerals, since the second half of 2010, has pursued autoclaving in an effort to prove their ability to commercially extract and recover precious and base metals from the slag material at their Clarkdale Slag Project. Autoclaving is a proven technology that is extensively used within the mining industry. It is a chemical leach process. It uses elevated temperature and pressure in a closed autoclave system to extract precious and base metals from their slag material.
The Searchlight Gold Project involves exploration for precious metals on mining claims near Searchlight, Nevada. This project is an early-stage gold exploration endeavor on 3,200 acres located approximately 50 miles south of Las Vegas, Nevada. Since 2005, the Company has maintained an ongoing exploration program on their Searchlight Gold Project. They contracted with Arrakis, an unaffiliated mining and environmental firm, to perform a number of metallurgical tests on surface and bulk samples taken from the project site under strict chain-of-custody protocols.
In 2007, results from these tests validated the presence of gold on the project site, and identified reliable and consistent metallurgical protocols for the analysis and extraction of gold, such as microwave digestion and autoclave leaching. On February 11, 2010, the Company received final approval of their Plan of Operations from the BLM. This allows them to conduct an 18-hole drill program on their project area. However, they have decided to postpone further exploration on their Searchlight Gold Project until they are better able to determine the feasibility of their Clarkdale Slag Project. The Company has budgeted $50,000 over the next 12 months for the Searchlight Gold Project to file and pay the necessary fees to maintain their claims.
This month, Searchlight Minerals announced the results of tests conducted by an independent Australian metallurgical testing firm at their facility in Western Australia. The Australian Testing Firm conducted autoclave tests under various conditions, using the pressure oxidative leach (POL) testing methodology. The completion of these tests demonstrated the ability of a pilot autoclave to process the Clarkdale slag material on a continuous basis. The pilot multi-compartment autoclave is routinely used to simulate operating performance in a full-scale commercial autoclave as part of a bankable feasibility study.
Searchlight Minerals Corp. (SRCH), closed on Tuesday at $0.92, up 0.55%, on 47,242 volume with 13 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 189,701. The 52-week low/high is $0.35/$2.00.

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 $0.32, off by 8.57%, on 159,173 volume with 40 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 156,903, and its 52-week low/high is $0.31/$1.15.
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.

GlobalWise Investments, via its wholly-owned subsidiary Intellinetics, is a Columbus, Ohio, based developer of ECM (Enterprise Content Management) systems, and offers industry-leading software that delivers cloud based ECM solutions. The company’s flagship platform, IntellivueTM, enables clients to access and manage all types of corporate content, including scanned documents, spreadsheets, email, photos, even audio and video content, almost anything that can be digitized, from any computer, tablet, or smartphone, from anywhere in the world.
Today, virtually every organization on earth increasingly depends upon digitized information, and the organization and access of that information is fast becoming a foundational element of corporate operations. The ECM industry is all about information organization and access, and is expected to exceed $5.7 billion by 2014, growing at a rate of over 10% per year. Traditional content management is simply no longer sufficient to meet the demands of far-flung divisions and on-the-move employees, and can become a significant drag on productivity. Information overflow can result in up to 85% of an organization’s critical content being trapped as unstructured data, a serious situation when concerned with issues like security, compliance, and redundancy.
By offering advanced cloud-based software and ECM solutions to the largely underserved small-to-medium size business market, GlobalWise is now in a position to capture a significant share of that market. The company’s Intellivue platform combines advanced virtualization and automated content management with an open, service-oriented architecture using web services. GlobalWise cutting-edge offerings and open software are used by leading hardware vendors that recognize the growing importance of advanced ECM.
The company has already been successful in targeting a range of industries and applications, including:
• Accounts Payable
• Financial Services
• Law Enforcement

International Stem Cell has developed a way to derive high quality stem cells without the need for fertilized embryos. Called parthenogenesis, the new process is seen as a source for stem cells that could treat a number of degenerative diseases, including diabetes, liver disease, retinal degeneration, spinal traumas, and other central nervous system injuries.
• Age related macular degeneration is one of the leading causes of blindness. Fully one third of all Americans over the age of 50 are considered at risk of developing the disease. Retinal cell transplantation has been shown to benefit patients and may become a key medical application of stem cells. Current retinal cell transplantation faces a lack of sufficient cells as well as immune rejection by the patient. The use of parthenogenetic stem cells (hpSC) represents a potential solution to both of these problems, and ISCO is working with leading research companies, scientists, and physicians to further increase production levels of the cells suitable for therapeutic use.
• Diabetes has become a major health care problem worldwide, with approximately 15% of healthcare dollars spent in the U.S. going toward the treatment of diabetes and related complications. Nearly 17 million Americans, over 6% of the population, currently have diabetes. Islets are a type of cell found in the pancreas which include beta cells that make insulin. Islet transplantation has been shown to be effective in helping diabetics, but is hampered by a lack of sufficient islets and by immune rejection. ISCO is working with Novocell, the world leader in the technology of deriving islet cells from stem cells, to produce islet cells from ISCO’s parthenogenetic stem cells.
• Chronic liver disease, including hepatitis C, is a common cause of death for people in the 34 to 64 age group, with annual health care costs approaching $100 billion in the U.S. The transplantation of hepatocytes, cells of the main tissue of the liver, can help treat those with the disease, but cell demand far exceeds supply. Derivation of hepatocyte cells from hpSC can be conducted concurrently with the derivation islet cells, and ISCO’s scientists are developing their own differentiation protocol based on existing technologies.
• ISCO scientists are also focused on deriving neural stem cells (NSC). These cells should be a pure population of the same cell type in order to avoid transformation into other cellular types. The use of NSC in regenerative therapy may provide a potential treatment for such neurodegenerative diseases as Alzheimer disease, Parkinsonism, and ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis).

Kimber Resources has built up a substantial gold/silver acreage position in Mexico that is best expressed via the company’s flagship Monterde project (100%-owned), which lies in the heart of the massive (112 sq mile) Sierra Madre Gold/Silver Belt and upon which the company reported today, with exceptional results coming back from the two new test holes drilled to test for new mineralization on previously undrilled land just northeast of the existing Carmen deposit.
The Carmen deposit (in addition to Monterde’s other two main deposits, the Carotare and Veta Minitas – total inferred resource estimates for the project as of May last year, and prior to new discoveries, project some 6.59M oz Au and 22.18M oz Ag) is the true focus of the project and this step-out onto additional acreage showing high-grade gold intercepts with abundant silver is indeed very promising news for KBX:
4.3 g/t Au and 166.6 g/t Ag over 6.9 feet
3.2 g/t Au and 222.0 g/t Ag over 4.9 feet
Some serious hits for Kimber on land that is just northeast of the Carmen deposit and the overall assay results are solid as well, indicating the structural mineralization here observed bears not only huge potential for further testing, but the chance of multiple structures. In fact, this view is supported by the proximal Cocos zone discovery (18.3 g/t Au and 374.3 g/t Ag over 23 feet – reported Jan 26, 2012) and the robust intercepts across the spectrum for today’s reported drilling results.
The multiple intercepts of high-grade gold/silver, while not as dramatic as those listed above, are a very strong indicator that the underlying geological model for Monterde is sound. More importantly the localized model for Carmen and the newly identified mineralization, dubbed Carmen East, is mapped out in great detail by the assays (ranging from 0.2 g/t Au up to 1.6 Au in other data points, with anywhere from 24.0 g/t Ag, up to 80.4 g/t). Looking at the data sets side-by-side it’s a pretty good bet to say KBX has their hands on a major find.
This adds handsomely to the company’s already strong land position in Mexico, bolstering the value of the flagship site and improving the outlook for the flagship’s main deposit. The increased output and work associated with new discoveries at Monterde benefit from the project’s excellent logistics, with paved and gravel roads dovetailing out to state Route 16 from the nearby town of San Rafael (full service infrastructure base and the Chihuahua el Pacifico Railway runs right through it), leading over to Chihuahua. In addition to this good location, there is an extensive network of roads on the site, with ample access (especially around the defined resource and projected extensions).
President and CEO of KBX, Gordon Cummings, was ecstatic, citing the impressive intercepts from Carmen East and underscoring the evidence for multiple structures with the kind of gold/silver returns that will make shareholders eyes light up. Cummings stressed the need for further drilling in the Carmen East zone to extend these findings, confident that the same geological profile that has made Carmen so successful, will pan out in Carmen East.
The dollar has strengthened recently, as European sovereign debt overhang and the auspices of a Grexit (with Spain and Italy still causing major concerns) drive capital into the greenback (USD trading at a 22-month high against the Euro). But even as India’s gold imports this month drop by more than half, the four month trough for the precious metal that has been money for some 5k years shows signs of filling, as Russia’s central bank looks to add 100 tons of gold to the reserve this year alone.
