International Isotopes, Inc. (INIS)
SmallCapVoice reported earlier on International Isotopes, Inc. (INIS), and we highlight the Company today, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
International Isotopes, Inc. manufactures a complete range of nuclear medicine calibration and reference standards, high purity fluoride gases, and a variety of cobalt-60 products such as teletherapy sources. Additionally, they provide a broad selection of radioisotopes and radiochemicals for medical devices, calibration, clinical research, life sciences, and industrial applications. Furthermore, they provide a host of analytical, measurement, recycling, and processing services on a contract basis to clients. Listed on the OTCBB, International Isotopes has their headquarters in Idaho Falls, Idaho.
The Company's core business consists of six reportable segments. These include Nuclear Medicine Standards, Cobalt Products, Radiochemical Products, Fluorine Products, Radiological Services, and Transportation. International Isotopes is in the licensing and design phase of their planned environmentally friendly, green technology, uranium de-conversion and fluorine extraction processing facility located near Hobbs, New Mexico. The Company believes this new commercial facility will provide an excellent commercial opportunity. They hold patents that give them exclusive rights for the Fluorine Extraction Process (FEP), a process that produces high value, high purity fluoride gasses in conjunction with uranium de-conversion.
International Isotopes has developed a unique process to convert depleted uranium tails (by-product produced from the enrichment of uranium) to ultra high purity, high value industrial fluoride products. Fluoride products are a key raw material for microelectronics, fiber optic cable, thin film photovoltaics (solar cells) and many other manufacturing processes.
In November 2011, International Isotopes announced that they completed an agreement in principle with Idaho State University to develop jointly, processes for the production of Copper-67. Copper-67 has shown exceptional potential in the treatment of non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma as well as bladder, colorectal, and ovarian cancers. However, it is a difficult isotope to produce and has not been consistently made available in the U.S.
Recently, International Isotopes announced that they received their air permit from the New Mexico Environment Department for the planned depleted uranium de-conversion and fluorine extraction processing facility. Other state permits are necessary prior to the commencement of operations. The State's issuance of this permit completes permitting actions required in New Mexico to allow the start of construction of the Company's "green technology" planned facility.
Earlier this month, International Isotopes announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2012. Revenue for the three-month period ended March 31, 2012 was $1,949,343, compared to $2,413,315 for the same period in 2011, an overall decrease of approximately 19 percent. The Company reported a decline in revenue from all business segments for the period. However, the net loss for the three-month period ended March 31, 2012 was $590,247, compared to $1,715,012 for the same period in 2011, an improvement of almost 66 percent. This is primarily due to the decrease in research and development expense related to the licensing and planning for the proposed de-conversion facility.
International Isotopes, Inc. (INIS), closed on Thursday at $0.20, up 21.87%, on 26,158 volume with 7 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 17,670. The 52-week low/high is $0.05/$0.32.
American Energy Development Corp. (AEDC)
StocksGoneWild, Stock Alert, AlphaPennyStock, Pennybuster, Caesar's Penny Stocks, StockRunway, and Epic Stock Picks reported this month on American Energy Development Corp. (AEDC). Stock Brain, Liquid Pennies, Stockhunter.us, HEROSTOCKS, VIP STOCK ALERTS, and The Bull Report also reported this month, and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
American Energy Development Corp. is an independent U.S. energy company whose shares trade on the OTC Bulletin Board. The Company's commitment is to creating American energy independence through the development of acreage in established oil and gas basins. Their goal is to locate, drill, and produce oil and gas in the United States and secure regions. The Company formerly went by the name LJM Energy Corp. They changed their name to American Energy Development Corp. in July 2011. Founded in 2010, the Company is based in New York City; they also have a London, England office.
American Energy Development's focus is on the development of Niagaran oil reefs in Michigan and the underexplored onshore basins in the United Kingdom. The Company's current holdings represent greater than 30,000 acres of what they believe is prime oil and gas acreage with large prospective potential reserves. Their objective is to use proven and pioneering technology to take full advantage of their acreage.
The Company's 1,343 acre Dansville prospects (Dansville Niagaran Reef Prospect, Ingham County, Michigan) are located among wells drilled by majors ExxonMobil, BP and regional major player WestBay Exploration.
This month, American Energy Development reported the progress of drilling the Cremer 1-1 well. Located on their Dansville Prospect, the Cremer 1-1 well was spudded on April 24, 2012, targeting a Niagaran reef structure. It reached a total depth of approximately 4,500 feet on May 8, 2012. Given the good porosity, permeability and oil shows in the structure, the drilling contractor has cement plugged the Cremer 1-1 well. This will enable the well to be re-entered when a final development plan has been determined. Options include sidetracking the well, targeting the top of the structure.
In addition, this month, American Energy Development reported financial results and filed their Form 10-Q for their third fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2012. Third Quarter Fiscal 2012 highlights include their first 1,000 barrels of oil produced from the Brown 2-12 well in the Dansville Prospect.

Minco Gold Corp. (MGH)
SmarTrend Newsletters and SmallCap Fortunes reported earlier on Minco Gold Corp. (MGH), and we are reporting on the Company today, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, Minco Gold Corp. is a mining company engaging in the direct acquisition and development of high-grade, advanced stage gold properties. The Company owns an exploration property portfolio covering more than 1,000 square kilometers of mineral rights in China. Minco Gold currently owns 16 gold properties covering this area of mineral rights in China.
The Company has multi-property drilling and field evaluation planned or underway. Their short-term goals are to bring primary projects to feasibility, as well as seek out new acquisitions. Their long-term goal is to become a significant gold producer and exploration partner in China. The Company has strong relationships with premier Chinese mining organizations. Minco Gold is well funded; they have experienced management teams in Canada and China. Moreover, the Company has strong operating expertise and a large geological database.
Minco Gold's subsidiary is Minco Mining (China) Co., Ltd. This subsidiary underwent incorporation in China for the purposes of managing the Company's projects in China, enhancing the Company's management team in China, and expanding upon certain mining activities (such as staking) in China.
In early February, Minco Gold provided an update on the Tugurige Gold Project. On January 13, 2011, the Company announced that they, through their wholly owned subsidiary, Minco Mining (China), entered into a Joint Venture Agreement as amended with the 208 Exploration Team, a subsidiary of China National Nuclear Corp., to acquire a 51 percent interest in the Tugurige Gold Project.
The 208 Team has not complied with certain of their obligations under the JV Agreement. This includes their obligation to set up a new entity (the JV Co) and the transfer of their 100 percent interest in the Tugurige Gold Project to the JV Co. The Company is proactively engaging in resolving this dispute with the 208 Team. Consequently, the Company has not started the commissioning of an NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate on the property.
Last month, Minco Gold announced the start of the planned exploration program for their 100 percent owned Longnan Project located in Gansu Province, China. The Company has successfully maintained twelve exploration permits in the South of Gansu province, collectively referred to as the Longnan project. They are intensifying exploration activity because of progress made through the 2010 and 2011 exploration programs, which defined multiple drill targets at Shajinba and Baimashi in the Yejiaba area. Minco Gold's 2012 exploration program will mainly focus on the Yejiaba area of the Longnan Project. It will include surface trenching and sampling, approximately 3,000 meters of diamond drilling in eight holes, and 3,000 meters of underground tunneling.
Minco Gold Corp. (MGH), closed on Thursday at $0.46, down 0.37%, on 15,200 volume with 22 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 52,698. The 52-week low/high is $0.42/$2.08.
Namibia Rare Earths, Inc. (NRE.TO)
Today we are highlighting Namibia Rare Earths, Inc. (NRE.TO), here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Namibia Rare Earths, Inc. is developing a portfolio of mineral exploration projects in Namibia. The Company is currently focusing on the accelerated development of their 100 percent held Lofdal Rare Earths Project. They have allocated 22,500 meters of diamond drilling towards the delineation of a mineral resource by mid-2012. Namibia Rare Earths shares list on the Toronto Stock Exchange. The Company has their corporate headquarters in Bedford, Nova Scotia.
The Lofdal Rare Earths Project is an early stage, district scale exploration project covering more than 200 km2. The project has a demonstrated potential for the discovery of multiple REE deposits with a focus on exceptional (greater than 80 percent) heavy rare earth-enriched carbonatite deposits. The first resource-drilling program started in January 2012 to deliver a 43-101 compliant resource in Q3 2012.
The Lofdal Rare Earths Project permit is held as an Exclusive Prospecting License (EPL) # 3400, which is currently in its second renewal period. The license is held 100 percent in the name of Namibia Rare Earths (Pty) Ltd. which in turn is 100 percent owned by Namibia Rare Earths.
Rare earth elements (REEs) are found in anomalous concentrations in many of the carbonatite rocks within the Lofdal Carbonatite Complex situated approximately 450 km northwest of Windhoek in north central Namibia. The most significant aspect of the distribution of rare earth elements at Lofdal is the consistent mix with heavy rare earth elements, which compares favorably with several known rare earth deposits. The presence of relatively low concentrations of the more valuable heavy rare earths will be the key to delineating an economic ore body at Lofdal.
In late March of this year, Namibia Rare Earths reported that they received results from the first 15 holes completed in the Area 4 resource-drilling program on the Lofdal Rare Earth Project. A total of 38 holes have been completed for approximately 4,500 meters. This includes two large diameter core holes designed to obtain representative samples of the mineralized zone for metallurgical test purposes. Drill intercepts are highlighted by an intercept of 7 meters of 1.14 percent total rare earth oxides (TREO) with 90.6 percent heavy rare earth (HREE) enrichment.
Namibia Rare Earths, Inc. (NRE.TO), closed on Thursday at $0.32, even with yesterday’s close. The 52-week low/high is $0.29/$0.50.

Quantum International Corp. (QUAN)
The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Quantum International Corp. (QUAN). Today, Quantum International Corp. closed trading at $2.15, up 2.38%, on 11,743 volume with 25 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 18,937, and its 52-week low/high is $1.75/$16.50.
Quantum International Corp. (QUAN) is an emerging robotics innovation company that's setting the stage for the next generation of automation technology. The company is targeting leading-edge developers of advanced robotics technologies for acquisition or partnership, with the goal of developing and marketing these technologies to meet fast rising global demand. In particular, the company is exploring new innovations in medical robotics, adding one exploding market on top of another.
With the rapid advancement of sophisticated sensory and control electronics, the promise of economic robotic applications is finally becoming a reality. Although industrial robots have been around for a long time, smaller, lighter, and less expensive versions are finally beginning to play a serious role in the marketplace. It's much like the development of the computer, from a room-size electrical monster, costing millions, to a desktop, laptop, and now handheld electronic wizard that almost anyone can afford.
The worldwide demand for robots is growing rapidly, seen as a now affordable source of controlled energy. The global market for robots is currently estimated at $3.2 billion, with experts projecting the industry to approach $70 billion by 2025. In addition industrial applications, robots are now a crucial part of everyday life for an increasing number of individuals in their home. Personal assistance robots are helping the elderly, paralyzed, and chronically ill lead more independent lives, presenting a major breakthrough in home care with countless benefits.
Add to that the natural growth of the massive health care industry, and medical technology, and it's easy to see why, according to ABI Research, the medical robots industry is expected to reach $1.3 billion by 2016. As an example, various forms of robotic technology are already being used in hospital operating rooms to make difficult or impossible operative procedures now doable. But that same technology can be applied to many other industries, such as consumer electronics, agriculture, wind and solar, and manufacturing. Disclaimer

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 $2.44, up 3.83%, on 15,209 volume with 26 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 17,366, and its 52-week low/high is $1.02/$8.82.
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

Genta, a biopharm company focused on the oncology market, today announced that it has added the first patient to a new randomized trial of tesetaxel as initial chemotherapy for women with advanced or recurrent breast cancer.
The company expects to enroll 220 patients for the 12-month, randomized phase 2b study, which will be conducted across 15 sites in the U.S. and Western Europe.
The participating women will not have previously received chemotherapy for metastatic or recurrent disease, though eligible patients who are HER2-negative may have received adjuvant chemotherapy and hormonal therapy.
The study will compare two oral chemotherapy agents; patients will be randomized to one of three treatment groups administered twice per day for 14 consecutive days. The primary endpoint of the trial is overall response rate; secondary endpoints include progression-free survival and safety.
In the previously conducted two phase 2a studies, tesetaxel was generally well-tolerated. In the first study, 13 of 34 patients (38 percent) achieved a major objective response, and 11 patients achieved stable disease, for a disease control rate of 70 percent. In the second trial, 20 of 44 patients (45 percent) achieved major objective responses with a disease-control rate of 82 percent.
“Our preliminary results suggest that tesetaxel may compare favorably with capecitabine across a number of parameters, including response, safety, convenience, and compliance,” Dr. Loretta M. Itri, Genta’s president and chief medical officer stated in the press release. “Genta has now completed two, non-randomized, phase 2a studies comprised of more than 80 patients. The Company has been engaged in extended discussions with regulatory authorities in the U.S. and EU regarding potential registration strategies for tesetaxel in breast cancer. We believe this new study will provide a firm basis for a phase 3 trial design as first-line chemotherapy in this patient population.”
