Greenbackers and StockBlogs reported this week on Petrosonic Energy, Inc. (PSON), Wyatt Investment Research, StreetAuthority Financial, Stock Analyzer, Trade of the Week, Insider Wealth Alert did earlier, and we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Based in Calgary, Alberta, Petrosonic Energy, Inc. engages in heavy oil upgrading and related technologies. Presently, their primary focus is to provide technologies that upgrade heavy oil economically and in an environmentally friendly manner. The Company has acquired 100 percent of the intellectual property for the Sonoprocess™ Technology, and an established processing plant. Petrosonic Energy's shares trade on the OTC Markets' OTCQB.
Their patented Sonoprocess™ uses cleantech sonic energy to de-asphalt heavy oil at much smaller scale and lower capital costs than conventional upgraders. It does so without the use of water or the release of emissions in the atmosphere.
Last month, Petrosonic announced the filing of 10 US Patent Applications surrounding their core sonic de-asphalting technology. Petrosonic's core technology is a proprietary industrial scale sonic reactor. It transfers sonic energy on an industrial scale to physical, chemical or biological processes.
Their first Heavy Oil Processing facility will deliver cash flow and commercialization of the Sonoprocess™ on a continuous basis. Petrosonic is commercializing their patented Sonoprocess Heavy Oil Upgrading Technology by way of their wholly owned subsidiaries and joint ventures with third parties. The Company is in an advanced stage of development as pertains to applications for heavy oil sands separation (from oil sands and ecology pits) as well as oil separations from dill cuttings.
Petrosonic Energy's commercial process improves heavy oil densities by 6 to 15 API from as low as 8 API. It reduces viscosities of oil by 99 percent to pipeline specifications and reduces sulphur and heavy metals by more than 50 percent. The Sonoprocess™ is especially beneficial to producers with stranded heavy oil because of transportation issues; diluents' supply issues; limited refining markets and heavy discounts due to density adjustments, high sulphur content, and high metals content.
This week, Petrosonic Energy announced the completion of the emulsification processing plant in Albania and the start of the heavy crude emulsion process. They additionally announced that they completed a number of major components of the de-asphalting Sonoprocess™ line located within the same facility as the emulsion plant.

The Guitammer Company, a leader in low frequency sound and creator of the award-winning line of ButtKicker®-brand low frequency audio transducers that provide an immersive entertainment experience, has teamed up with Obutto to expand joint marketing efforts to include sim racers and flight sim customers in China as well as distribution in Canada and Europe.
Obutto is now selling the ButtKicker Gamer2 throughout China on their online store in the Taobao Marketplace (www.taobao.com). Comparable to eBay and Amazon, Taobao is a Chinese language website for online shopping. The ecommerce website facilitates consumer-to-consumer retail by providing a platform for small businesses and individual entrepreneurs to open online retail stores and reach consumers in mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan.
Chris Dunagan, Founder of Obutto, stated, “ButtKicker brand products add that final piece of realism that our customers want when using our sim-racing and flight sim cockpits. The difference between using racing or flying with a ButtKicker Gamer2 and without a ButtKicker Gamers2 is unbelievable. Every sim-racer and flight sim’er absolutely has to add ButtKicker to their cockpit if they are serious about their experience.” The build quality, accuracy and power of the ButtKicker Gamer2 is superb. We also found it’s an ideal way to be able to listen to music with headphones and still have all the bass beat you want without annoying co-workers while working in one of our cockpits.”
Mark A. Luden, President / CEO of Guitammer, commented, “Chris and I share the same vision of providing solutions to our customers that are compelling, affordable and provide a differentiated experience. The Obutto cockpit is well thought out, high quality and extremely affordable. Their newest cockpit, the r3volution, is not just a sim cockpit, but it is an entire workstation that can conceivably replace your desk at work. We look forward to growing our business with Obutto worldwide.”

The Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) represents more than 1,100 biotech companies, academic institutions, state biotech centers, and related organizations in more than 30 nations. As part of its initiative to “expand the boundaries of science to benefit mankind,” the organization hosts its annual BIO International Convention, the world’s largest biotechnology industry event.
Attendees benefit from keynotes and sessions from leading policymakers, scientists, CEOs, and celebrities, and at the 2013 BIO International Convention in April, convention-goers got a taste of the booming Russian pharmaceutical market leveraged by “Pharma 2020,” the Russian government’s initiative to further develop the country’s pharmaceutical/medical industry.
“We have seen a remarkable shift in opinions about pharmaceuticals in Russia in the past few years. Pharma 2020 has already become a ubiquitous term across the world,” Sergey Tsyb, director of the Department of Chemical Industries and Bioengineering Technologies at the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trad, recently told Modern Russia.
If the progress keeps its current pace, the Russian pharmaceutical industry by 2020 (relative to the naming of the Pharma 2020 project) could be responsible for the manufacture of 50 percent of drugs in circulation, 80 percent of which would be domestically developed.
The industry is valued at roughly $21.4 billion for 2012, driven by the Russian government goal to increase innovation, medicines, and medical technology. By 2020, the market is expected to top $60 billion, and this is a figure small-cap company Rafarma Pharmaceuticals anticipates playing a large part in.
Operating from its 270,000-square-foot state-of-the-art production facility, the Russia-based multi-product pharmaceutical company is producing generic antibiotics and specialty pharmaceuticals in addition to its own line of proprietary products that are approved by the Ministry of Health of Russian Federation.
Rafarma’s pharmaceutical plant has the capability and space to produce all types and forms of medical drugs of various pharmacological groups, and the company earlier this month began production of the antibiotic Ceftriaxone, which according to 2011 official statistics, had a market worth estimated at more than $51 million (USD) annually. As a participant in the Russian Federal Program for “Domestic-Produced Vital Drugs,” Rafarma said it intends to take as much as 50 percent of the Russian market for Ceftriaxone.
As awareness and support of the Russian pharmaceutical market continues to grow, Rafarma is positioned to achieve its long-term goal to be one of the Top 3 players in the Russian pharmaceutical market by 2018, armed with a sprawling multi-profile pharmaceutical plant and supported by aggressive federal initiatives.

Raptor Resources is focused on mineral resource acquisition, exploration, and development, executed through two subsidiaries: publicly traded Mabwe Minerals, Inc. (OTCQB: MBMI), and TAG Minerals.
Mabwe is a natural resources and hard asset company engaged in the mining and commercial sales of industrial minerals and metals with first focus on barite. Along with its affiliate, Mabwe Minerals Zimbabwe (Private) Ltd., Mabwe owns 100% of the mineral and metal rights to the Dodge Mine property, which consists of three hydrothermal mountains representing 123 hectares containing multiple deposits of superior grade barite, limestone, and talc.
Mabwe is positioned to benefit from increasing demand for barite, which is used as a weighting agent for drilling fluids in oil and gas drilling applications to counteract the force of oil or gas released from the ground. According to Industrial Metals, global consumption of barite is expected to grow 30 percent by 2016, squeezed by high consumption and low availability.
Roughly 80% of the annual demand for barite ore is used in the oil & gas drilling sector (API-grade), mainly to prevent well blowouts and/or shaft collapse. The remaining 20% (non-API grade) is primarily used in paint, automotive, and medical applications that command a price premium for white barite.
The company reports that the “world class” hydrothermal barite deposits throughout Dodge Mine represent the highest grade of new barite sources to be announced in recent years, and has secured a long-term Master Supplier Agreement (MSA) with an established oil & gas drilling sector corporation representing 3 million metric tons of American Petroleum Institute (API) grade barite to be delivered at a rate of 220,000 metric tons per year.
Raptor Resources’ second subsidiary, TAG Minerals, is a mineral & metal resource acquisition, exploration, and development company primarily focused on alluvial surface gold. The company is currently engaged in two gold projects in Zimbabwe.
The Makuruanopamaenza Gold Project sits above the Mazowe River, which is known for its rich deposits of alluvial gold. The property is located within close proximity to Mabwe Minerals’ Dodge Mine. The company has registered 600 hectares of the greenfield mountain range with site development to begin the second half of calendar year 2013.
Raptor Resources has temporarily suspended bulk sampling of TAG Minerals’ second project, the ODZI Riverbed Project, as it channels its resources to continue fast-tracking Dodge Mine in light of rising global demand for barite. The company instead will concentrate its HPC-10 units along a tighter ODZI grid pattern to finalize the blocks.
