The Company's producing assets include the San Andres gold mine in Honduras, the Sao Francisco and Sao Vicente gold mines in Brazil, and the copper-gold-silver Aranzazu Mine in Mexico. Their core exploration asset is the feasibility-stage copper-gold-iron ore Serrote Project in Brazil.
The San Andres Mine is an open-pit heap leach gold mine located in the highlands of western Honduras and covers 399 hectares. The San Andres Mine forms the solid base of production for Aura Minerals, with a current resource base of over two million ounces of gold and excellent potential to increase resources.
The Sao Francisco mine is an open-pit, heap leach gold mine located in western Mato Grosso State, Brazil. The Sao Francisco Mine is 50 kilometers southeast of the Sao Vicente Mine, and at the center of a historic gold-producing district.

Empire Mining Corp. (EPC.V)
Stockhouse and Bull Ventures reported earlier on Empire Mining Corp. (EPC.V), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Trading on the TSX Venture Exchange, Empire Mining Corp. engages in the exploration and development of mineral properties. The Company's properties are in Turkey, Albania, and Serbia. Empire Mining primarily explores for chromite, copper, molybdenum, gold, silver, lead, and zinc deposits. Chromite is essential in the production of stainless steel; it has no substitutes. The Company has their headquarters in Vancouver, British Columbia.
In Turkey, Empire Mining announced a significant new discovery at their Bursa copper-gold project in January 2011. The Discovery hole drilled at the Demirtepe target intersected significant copper-gold-silver skarn mineralization including 2.02 percent copper, 0.96 g/t gold and 21.64 g/t silver over 47.35 m from 112.2 m to 159.55 m. This included 8.0 m of 9.1 percent copper, 4.68 g/t gold and 95.3 g/t silver. The Bursa Property is 120 km south of Istanbul in western Turkey and consists of exploration licenses within a trend of demonstrated copper, molybdenum and gold porphyry systems in Bursa and Kutahya provinces.
In Albania, the Company controls chromite licenses in the historical Bulqiza Mining District. The district has past production of approximately 20 million tonnes of high-grade (35-42 percent Cr2O3) and high quality (CrFe ratios of up to 3:1) chromite. On November 7, 2011, Empire reported that they suspended their Albanian operations temporarily pending clarification of their status.
In Serbia, Empire Mining is advancing four copper and gold projects with significant exploration upside. The Company's goal is to define drill targets for future drilling campaigns. Serbia is located in the southeastern Balkan region of Europe.
In late May, Empire Mining reported that they won a lawsuit against the Albanian Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Energy (METE), respecting Empire's Bulqiza chromite project licenses. As expected, METE has requested a hearing date for an appeal of this decision, which has been set for June 26, 2012.
Empire initiated this lawsuit over METE's administrative ruling of October 31, 2011, which materially confined and restricted Empire's mining rights concerning the Bulqiza chromite project. The initial Ruling granted Empire a one-year extension of their mining rights. However it systematically removed regions with the most prospective value, including those containing significant historical resources of chromite.
Empire Mining Corp. (EPC.V), closed on Wednesday at $0.08, even with yesterday’s close. The 52-week low/high is $0.07/$0.39.
Sionix Corp. (SINX)
PennyTrader Publisher, Alternative Energy, Investor Ideas, and OTCPicks reported earlier on Sionix Corp. (SINX), and we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Trading on the OTCBB, Sionix Corp. is a designer of innovative and patented advanced Mobile Water Treatment Systems (MWTS). The design of these is for use in energy projects. These include subterranean fracturing used in oil and gas drilling, government facilities, healthcare facilities, emergency water supplies, housing development projects, and various other industrial processes. Sionix is based in Los Angeles, California.
Sionix's MWTS can be located adjacent to contaminated water sites or as a pre-treatment for reverse osmosis and other membrane applications. Industries involved in dairy, agribusiness, meat processing, mining, poultry operations, and several others can benefit from the Company's cost-effective, easily maintained, portable water treatment systems.
In regards to the Company's Technology, using a patented Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) technology packaged in a mobile shipping container, air bubbles between the size of 1 and 2 microns are injected and float organic contaminants to the surface where 99.95 percent are skimmed off, and a majority of inorganic contaminants are captured and removed. This is in comparison to standard DAF units which traditionally have been limited to using bubble sizes of 50 microns or larger. The size of these bubbles is significant: the smaller the bubble, the greater the surface tension. They can then hold together longer and elevate contaminants that are more organic to the surface for removal.
Earlier this month, Sionix announced the formation of Williston Basin II LLC (WBII). They are a Nevada limited liability company, which will operate similar to the previously announced Williston Basin I LLC (WBI). As a condition to their membership interest subscription, REVH2O LLC (REVH2O) has pre-paid a $200,000 licensing fee to Sionix for WBII. This represents a partial payment against an agreed 35 percent membership interest position once certain performance conditions of WBI have been met. REVH2O is a diversified fluids management and services company, serving the O&G industry primarily in Pennsylvania. REVH2O is a member of WBI and an equity holder in Sionix.
This week, Sionix announced the formation of four additional Williston Basin LLCs (WBIII through WBVI), Nevada limited liability companies, as affiliate companies to the previously announced Williston Basin I LLC (WBI) and Williston Basin II LLC (WBII). Subscription documents representing a 35 percent membership interest in LLCs II through VI have been received from REVH2O LLC (REVH2O). Sionix will retain a 65 percent interest in each newly formed LLC.

USA Recycling Industries, Inc. announced today that Redwood Recycling of Staten Island, N.Y. has extended coverage of their oil filter disposal services to its considerable customer base in the New York Metropolitan and surrounding areas, taking advantage of USRI’s advanced oil filter disposal process and filling a much-needed gap, as there has previously been no real source for oil filter disposal in the area. This is a huge win for both companies, serving a huge market with unmet demand.
USA Recycling Industries, Inc. (USRI) is a mid-market recyclable waste collection & disposal service, providing specialty recycling programs to commercial & industrial customers throughout North America. Operating through multiple company-owned & partnership recycling centers, the company primarily targets growth opportunities in the $75 billion global scrap metals market.

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 11.54%, on 318,870 volume with 41 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 177,241, and its 52-week low/high is $0.21/$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.

“Redwood Recycling has serviced the scrap metal industry in New York for more than a decade and services the largest market in the continental United States: the New York Metropolitan and surrounding areas,” Smith added. “We are pleased to work with a company that has such an outstanding history, and we look forward to aiding them in providing their customers with a vital recycling service not previously available.”
With more than 10.8 million registered vehicles in the state of New York, Redwood Recycling will be able to add significant revenue to its operations by implementing USRI’s oil filter disposal process. Recycling all the filters sold in the U.S. each year would result in the recovery of approximately 160,000 tons of steel alone. Offering this recycling service in the New York Metropolitan and surrounding areas (the largest market in the continental U.S.) is a significant stride forward in reclaiming valuable resources and deploying USRI’s oil filter disposal process throughout the country.

Advaxis, clinical-stage developer of next-generation immunotherapies for cancer and infectious diseases, today announced the publication of research with the company’s ADXS-PSA (ADXS31-142), which demonstrated significant tumor regression in prostate cancer in preclinical study.
The study was conducted to determine if the combination of ADXS-PSA immunotherapy and radiation therapy could improve upon the efficacy of either immunotherapy as stand-alone treatment or radiation therapy as a stand-alone in the treatment of mice bearing PSA-expressing TPSA23 tumors, a preclinical model of prostate cancer.
The study showed that the combination of ADXS-PSA immunotherapy and radiation therapy resulted in complete regression of established tumors in 60 percent of mice vs. 10 percent complete regression in either of the treatments alone.
This research was conducted in collaboration with Dr. Chandan Guha and his laboratory at Montefiore Medical Center, Bronx, NY, and was e-published ahead of print in the journal of Cancer Immunology Immunotherapy in the paper titled “Combined immunotherapy with Listeria monocytogenes-based PSA vaccine and radiation therapy leads to a therapeutic response in a murine model of prostate cancer.”
“ADXS-PSA continues to demonstrate activity in models of prostate cancer, confirming our decision to move this construct into clinical development. The potential synergy of ADXS-PSA and radiotherapy observed in this study suggests that ADXS-PSA might be combined with other therapies that show efficacy in this type of tumor,” Dr. John Rothman, EVP of Science and Operations at Advaxis stated in the press release.
