Northern Freegold Resources Ltd. (NFR.V)
AllPennyStocks reported previously on Northern Freegold Resources Ltd. (NFR.V), and we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Northern Freegold Resources Ltd. is a precious metals exploration and development company. The Company focuses on the development of economic mineral resources on the district-scale Freegold Mountain gold and copper project in the Yukon and the Burro Creek gold and silver property in Arizona. Northern Freegold's focus is to consolidate undervalued assets and apply a team of successful mining industry professionals to expand and develop mineral resources. The Company has their headquarters in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Company Management believes their Freegold Mountain Project is part of a large-scale gold-rich porphyry system, which extends in an east-west direction for over 8 kilometers. The system shows the same geological characteristics to other porphyry deposits in the region that host multi-million ounce gold resources and reserves with multi-billion pound copper resources. The road accessible Freegold Mountain Project is approximately 200 km northwest of the city of Whitehorse and 70 km northwest of the town of Carmacks, Yukon.
Northern Freegold is quickly advancing the district-scale Freegold Mountain Gold and Copper Project with two major NI 43-101 Deposits: The Revenue Target deposit and the Nucleus Deposit. Both deposits are open laterally and to depth. The Nucleus Deposit and Revenue target deposit are part of a large-scale gold rich porphyry system. The Revenue Zone is adjacent to the Company's existing Nucleus Deposit.
Northern Freegold also owns the aforementioned Burro Creek Gold-Silver Project in Arizona. It has an Indicated Resource of 2.3 M t grading 1.01 g/t Au and 36.77 g/t Ag (yielding 122,491 ounces at 1.63 g/t AuEq). It has an Inferred Resource of 2.2 M t grading 0.60 g/t Au and 30.95 g/t Ag (yielding 81,304 ounces at 1.13 g/t Au Eq). There exists a low-sulphidation epithermal vein system traced for over 1.7 kilometers.
In March, the Company announced that they made the regulatory filing of the report entitled "Technical Report on the Resource Estimate for the Revenue Au-Cu-Mo Porphyry Deposit, Freegold Mountain Project in the Yukon Territory, Canada". GeoVector Management Inc. prepared the report dated March 3, 2012. Highlights include a newly defined Inferred Resource of 101 million tonnes of mineralized material containing 1.1 million ounces gold, 10.2 million ounces silver, 287 million pounds of copper, and 90 million pounds of molybdenum grading 0.34 g/t gold, 3.14 g/t silver, 0.13 percent copper and 0.04 percent molybdenum using a gold equivalent (AuEq) cut-off grade of 0.5 grams per tonne (g/t). This equates to 3.7 million gold equivalent ounces at a grade of 1.1 g/t AuEq.
In May, Northern Freegold Resources announced the appointment of Mr. Paul Reynolds as Vice President, Exploration of the Company, effective June 1, 2012.

OXiGENE, Inc. (OXGN)
Money Morning reported recently on OXiGENE, Inc. (OXGN), OTCPicks, StockRich, HotOTC, CoolPennyStocks, BullRally, PennyStockVille, PennyInvest, StockEgg, MadPennyStocks did earlier, and we are reporting on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
OXiGENE, Inc. is a clinical-stage, Biopharmaceutical Company developing novel therapeutics primarily to treat cancer. The Company intends to target primarily the development of their product candidates for the treatment of rare cancers that will be eligible for orphan drug status from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). OXiGENE's major focus is developing vascular disrupting agents (VDAs) that selectively disrupt abnormal blood vessels associated with solid tumor progression. The Company has their headquarters in South San Francisco, California.
VDAs selectively disable and destroy abnormal blood vessels that provide solid tumors a means of growth and survival and are associated with visual impairment in a number of ophthalmological diseases and conditions. OXiGENE's lead candidate, ZYBRESTAT®, has been awarded orphan drug status by the FDA and the European Commission in the European Union for the treatment of advanced anaplastic thyroid cancer, or "ATC", and for the treatment of medullary, Stage IV papillary and Stage IV follicular thyroid cancers. The FDA has also granted Fast Track status to ZYBRESTAT® for the treatment of regionally advanced and/or metastatic ATC, as well as in ovarian cancer. So far, more than 400 subjects have been treated with ZYBRESTAT® in human clinical trials. The drug candidate has generally been observed to be well tolerated.
The Company's top priority is to pursue the clinical development of ZYBRESTAT® in ATC. ATC is a very aggressive, rare but lethal cancer of the thyroid gland. They have completed a Phase 2/3 clinical trial of ZYBRESTAT® in patients with ATC. They are currently planning a pivotal Phase 3 clinical trial of ZYBRESTAT® in ATC, which they refer to as the FACT 2 trial. The Company's main corporate strategy for 2012 is to secure sufficient funding to conduct the trial. In addition, they are pursuing a special protocol assessment (SPA) for this program with the FDA, with the goal of laying the foundation for the initiation of this global registration study.
Recently, OXiGENE reported financial results for the quarter ending March 31, 2012. For the three months ended March 31, 2012, they reported a net loss of $1.9 million or $0.12 per share, compared with a net loss of $0.9 million or $0.13 per share for the three-month period in 2011. The difference in results for the comparable three-month periods was due to a non-cash gain resulting from the change in fair value of warrants in the 2011 period of $2.2 million partially offset by a reduction in research and development expenses from the 2011 period to the 2012 period of $1.0 million. Furthermore, the 2012 period includes $0.1 million in revenue recognized under the terms of their December 2011 partnership agreement with Azanta Danmark A/S to provide access to ZYBRESTAT® for the treatment of patients with anaplastic thyroid cancer (ATC) on a compassionate use basis in Europe and Canada.

Eastern Platinum Ltd. (ELR.TO)
We are highlighting Eastern Platinum Ltd. (ELR.TO) today, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Eastern Platinum Ltd. is Canada's leading platinum group metals producer. Currently, the Company is engaged in the development and mining of platinum group metal deposits in South Africa. Eastern Platinum has assets on the western and eastern limbs of the Bushveld Complex, which holds approximately 80 percent of the world's platinum supply. Eastern Platinum lists on the Toronto Stock Exchange. Established in 2003, the Company has their headquarters in Vancouver, British Columbia.
In 2006, Eastern Platinum became Canada's largest platinum group metals producer when they acquired a 69 percent indirect interest in Barplats Investments Ltd. This acquisition was accompanied by a successful Cdn $150 million capital raising campaign, much of which has been invested in the Crocodile River Mine operations. In May 2007, Eastern Platinum acquired an additional 5 percent of Barplats.
In June 2007, the Company completed the acquisition of 42.3 percent of the shares of Gubevu, a company that holds 26 percent of the shares of Barplats. In December 2008, Eastern Platinum increased their direct shareholdings in Barplats to 74.99 percent and at the same time increased their ownership in Gubevu to 49.9 percent - in each case through equity investments.
The Company's four primary assets are the Crocodile River Mine on the western limb of the Bushveld, the Kennedy's Vale project located on the eastern limb of the Bushveld, the Spitzkop project adjacent to Kennedy's Vale, and the Mareesburg project, close to Spitzkop and Kennedy's Vale. The Bushveld Complex is internationally recognized as containing the world's largest resource of platinum group metals.

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 $2.40, up 14.29%, on 19,964 volume with 51 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 18,071, and its 52-week low/high is $1.02/$8.82.
Green Technology Solutions, Inc. reported today on the potentially crippling impact to the global economy from the tightening global supply of tungsten, a critical material for a variety of U.S. manufacturers and her economic allies and for which current global supply largely comes from China (85%). GTSO is moving to shore up the limited supply problem ahead of a price explosion for this important material, anticipating the same problem emerging that now exists with regard to rare earths.
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

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 $0.29, up 5.45%, on 756,821 volume with 107 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 162,717, and its 52-week low/high is $0.28/$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.

Tungsten, one of the world’s most critical commodities, is at risk of becoming an endangered element—potentially crippling the global manufacturing economy. GTSO is dedicated to ensuring U.S. manufacturers have access to strained tungsten supplies before prices for the heavy metal rise even higher.
There’s virtually no substitute for tungsten and its many crucial manufacturing uses. It’s used for hardening construction and drilling tools, military ordnance, and other megadurable applications. Without tungsten, it might not even be possible to mine other, more precious metals like platinum or palladium. Yet access to this critical metal is being threatened.
China produces more than 85 percent of the world’s tungsten supply. When the emerging superpower restricted sales of ammonium paratungstate (APT), the main form in which tungsten is sold, the price doubled. For that reason, the metal was one of last year’s best performing commodities, rising 35 percent in value. Tungsten appears to be following the same path as rare earths.
GTSO, an emerging tungsten mining company, is positioning itself at the forefront of the exploration and development sector as demand for technologies that rely on tungsten rises across the globe. Currently, the company is close to signing a joint venture agreement to explore mining projects and operations in North America and Africa.
GTSO CEO Paul Watson anticipates signing an agreement with experienced exploration and excavation specialists Diamond V Associates, Inc. (DVA) this week. The joint venture will allow GTSO to provide funding and expertise in exchange for DVA’s help researching, planning, and developing promising reserves of tungsten and other valuable minerals on an international scale.

Intellivue, a product of Intellinetics, a wholly owned subsidiary of GlobalWise Investments, is a unique cloud-based ECM (Enterprise Content Management) solution for business that allows clients to access and manage the contents of all types of documents from virtually any computer or smart phone, from anywhere in the world. It was one of several strengths highlighted by a recent positive initial coverage report from Murphy Analytics.
For more than two decades, GlobalWise has delivered advanced ECM products and services for public and private sector customers in the U.S. and Canada. The company is currently transitioning from a direct marketing approach to a channel based strategy, working with Dell, Lexmark, Samsung, and other vendor partners, in addition to using value-added resellers and IT providers, all targeting the small to medium business (SMB) market. The company’s CEO, BJ Santiago, recently served in executive positions in Lexmark, and was able to evaluate competing ECM solutions. It allowed him to identify a clear opportunity in the marketplace, and the best way to approach it, which he is helping GlobalWise to realize.
The IT sector in general is expected to expand significantly, with cloud computing and ECM growing as well. Murphy sees GlobalWise as well positioned in terms of price, platform, and marketing strategy, to successfully penetrate the SMB portion of the market.
In particular, Intellivue has unique and valuable features and functionality. Intellinetics offers software products based on open architecture, compatible with all major operating systems. The software is Open Database Compliant (ODBC) for seamless integration into virtually any existing database environment. It’s designed with the look and functionality of Windows, and is simple to deploy, use, and maintain. Intellinetics’ software uses an innovative mass-storage algorithm to compress stored information so that searched files can be retrieved in sub-second time, regardless of the number of files, the size of the network, or the number of simultaneous users. In addition, the software is mobile device enabled.
