Norman Cay Development, Inc. is an emerging mineral exploration company. The Company's wholly owned subsidiary, Discovery Gold Ghana Ltd., currently holds a 65 percent interest (with the opportunity to re-acquire 25 percent for 90 percent total) in the exclusive rights to explore and develop the Edum Banso Gold Project (7.8 square miles) within the historic Ashanti Gold Belt in Ghana. The design of the 2012 Edum Banso Gold Project exploration program is to be a continuation of previous work conducted on the concession by Newmont Gold (2004) and Xtra-Gold Resources (2008).
Earlier this month, Norman Cay Development announced that they received notification of the approval by the Minerals Commission of Ghana of the assignment of option rights for the Edum Banso Gold Project to Discovery Gold Ghana. The assignment of the option rights from Xtra-Gold Mining to Discovery Gold is the final obligation under the Edum Banso Acquisition Agreement between the two companies.
Norman Cay Development has devised a regional strategy focused on Edum Banso. The Company will pursue an aggressive funding/exploration initiative, targeting the previously identified areas. Phase I of the 2012 exploration program at the Edum Banso Gold Project is currently planned to consist of detailed geological mapping, soil sampling, assaying, and data analysis to confirm previous exploration work and determine optimal locations for Phase II trenching and auger sampling.
Phase II should identify the bedrock sources of known gold geochemistry in preparation for a potential 15-30 hole drill program expected to follow as Phase III. The Company will employ the best efforts of their Ghana-experienced technical consulting firm and should have Phase I wrapped within 90 days of starting.
The Company's exploration expenditures for Edum Banso are planned to reach approximately $970,000 over the next 12 months. The previous work conducted on the concession included extensive geophysical (aeromagnetic) interpretation, soil and stream sediment sampling (5,782 samples), trenching (319 meters), auger drilling (252 holes), and rock chip sampling (81 samples).
As of last month, four distinct mineralized gold zones have been identified over an area approximately 8 km long and 600 m wide. This includes two southern zones sharing contact with the unique Mpohor Complex mafic intrusions. The Mpohor Complex also hosts the producing HBB Father Brown and Adoikrom open pit gold deposits of Golden Star Resources located less than 1km to the southeast.

Energizer Resources, Inc. (ENZR)
SmallCapVoice reported this month on Energizer Resources, Inc. (ENZR), Stockhouse News Blast did earlier, and we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Energizer Resources, Inc. is a mineral exploration and development company that lists on the OTC Bulletin Board. The Company is developing their Green Giant Vanadium and Graphite Project in conjunction with their Madagascar-ERG Joint Venture (Mauritius) Ltd. property. The Green Giant vanadium deposit is one of the largest known vanadium deposits in the world. Energizer Resources is based in Toronto, Ontario.
The Company is the only enterprise actively targeting to produce battery-grade vanadium as a primary product. Currently, Energizer is targeting production by the end of 2014. Their deposit is distinct from other known Vanadium deposits because it is sediment-hosted and not magnetite-hosted like the majority of other known Vanadium deposits. Because of this, they expect to produce clean liquor requiring less processing to produce the high purity (99.5 percent), battery-grade vanadium.
Energizer Resources' Malagasy JV Graphite Project is in Madagascar adjacent to their Green Giant Project. Graphite is an excellent conductor of heat and electricity, and has the highest natural strength and stiffness of any material. The Company also has their Malagasy JV Vanadium Project.
Earlier this month, Energizer Resources announced that they intersected wide intercepts of graphite mineralization from their recently initiated National Instrument (NI) 43-101 graphite resource drill program on the Molo deposit. The Molo is located on the Green Giant Graphite project joint venture (JV) property with Malagasy Minerals in Madagascar, in which Energizer has a 75 percent ownership interest and is the operator.
A key characteristic of the Molo deposit is that the graphite is immediately at surface. This will allow for very cost-effective open pit mining. The Molo is also in an area with an ideal geographical setting as well as ideal terrain. The terrain is semi-arid and almost flat. These two features give the Molo a unique topographical signature not found in most deposits. The climate also adds to the ease of mining. This area of Madagascar has a very temperate climate with a mild rainy season from December to March.
Energizer Resources, Inc. (ENZR), closed on Thursday at $0.32, even with yesterday’s close, on 161,075 volume with 40 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 144,201. The 52-week low/high is $0.15/$0.48.

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 $0.36, even with yesterday's close, on 57,474 volume with 16 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 193,902, and its 52-week low/high is $0.21/$1.10.
International Stem Cell Corporation reported today that the company’s Research and Development team has advanced its program to create a functional, transplantable human cornea, using a newly developed method for deriving corneal endothelium-like cells from human pluripotent stem cells. This marks a key milestone on the road to creating a complete corneal transplant tissue and reinforces the extant work corneal endothelium by ISCO’s key collaborators at Sankara Nethralaya Eye Hospital, India.
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.

International Stem Cell Corporation’s research and development team has successfully created a functional and transplantable human cornea by developing a new method to derive corneal endothelium-like cells from human pluripotent stem cells.
This major milestone represents a significant step towards the creation of complete cornea tissue that can be used for transplantation. The accomplishment also supports prior data showing indications of corneal endothelium generated by ISCO’s collaborators at Sankara Nethralaya Eye Hospital, India. Such cells by themselves could promote wound healing and regeneration of the cornea, as well as be used as a standalone medical treatment.
ISCO stated that development and commercialization of its cell-derived cornea tissue, along with manufacturing of Lifeline Cell Technology’s media and cellular products, is the foundation for the company’s expansion to the Asian markets and for clinical collaboration with Indian biomedical organizations, including Sankara Nethralaya Eye Hospital and All-India Institute for Medical Sciences.
Asia represents a huge potential growth market for ISCO’s Cornea program. In just India alone there are more than 4 million people suffering from corneal vision impairment with limited access to corneal tissue. International Stem Cell Corporation intends to work with its clinical affiliate in India to meet this healthcare demand.
Dr. Ruslan Semechkin, Vice President of Research & Development, stated, “This new method not only brings our cornea program closer to clinical use, but it also gives us additional licensing opportunities. We have made good progress towards our goal of creating usable corneas, however the additional work, necessary to prove that these endothelium-like cells can be fully functional, will be done in conjunction with our collaborators.”

In a recent interview that Hearing Review had with Sycle.net, a GlobalWise channel sales partner, it was clear that Sycle.net was especially enthusiastic about eDocs, the just launched cloud-based document management system developed in partnership with GlobalWise subsidiary Intellinetics.
Sycle.net is the largest provider of cloud-based ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software systems specifically designed for the hearing care industry. They support over 65% of the audiology clinics in the U.S., and are growing by approximately 50 clinics every month. The company spent many months researching to identify the right ECM (Enterprise Content Management) software provider to help Sycle’s customers get a handle on all the patient documents naturally associated with health care environments. As their CEO, Ridge Sampson, stated: “Nothing is more important than our reputation with our audiology clients”. Their final choice was GlobaWise, and their Intellinetics Intellivue software platform. There were a number of factors involved in the choice, but one was the ability to easily and seamlessly integrate the Intellivue software platform into pre-existing software systems such as Sycle.net’s.
eDocs enhances the ability of authorized Sycle.net clients to access patient documents wherever there is Internet access. For example, eDocs allows an individual user to leave work, go home or travel, and then later use their own computer or other point of access to have all updated patient documents in front of them. It’s not only tremendously flexible, it’s a big step in freeing up storage space, making the entire business environment easier to manage. One of the early users of the system spoke of the major efficiencies gained by accessing clinical records using their fleet of iPads, and talked about being able to process over 14,000 documents in only 20 business days.
All of this represents a big win for GlobalWise, both now and in the future. Sycle.net serves over 6,000 audiology clinics and 18,000 individual users, providing an unbeatable opportunity for the company to rapidly expand the installed client base.

ERF Wireless, through its subsidiaries (Energy Broadband Inc., ERF Enterprise Network Services, ERF Wireless Bundled Services, ERF Wireless Messaging Services, and ERF Network Operations) has developed an impressive array of wireless broadband technologies/service offerings, including the biggest terrestrial wireless network in the country for handling the needs of the oil and gas exploration sector, and announced a specialized, GPS-based e911 system for their wireless network services today via subsidiary Energy Broadband.
With a majority of revenue streaming in directly from providing mission critical, terrestrial wireless broadband communications to domestic oil and gas rigs operating in remote areas, this awesome new feature brings a whole new meaning to the phrase that is typically used to describe the company’s already widely acclaimed services (including VoIP), “best of class.”
It cannot be stressed how important emergency 911 is for these kinds of remote operations. There are often no marked roads or at best a newly cut work road; typically there isn’t even a physical address, making emergency relief via standard 911 unavailable (even if there is a physical address it probably won’t be located on any available map). But now that this breakthrough technological advancement is being rolled out, we have real-time GPS coordination that is extensible to a variety of mapping methods, making it very simple to provide (often potentially life-saving) support for protecting rig-site workers.
Talk about a huge draw for oil and gas developers, this e911 system that marries the VoIP telephones already deployed on the work site to dispatch-ready GPS capabilities closes the loop between accident/injury and care, one of the biggest concerns for any developer doing business at a remote (often dangerous or difficult) location. The ability to provide this umbrella of protection for workers, where it was previously not available or possible, will draw in even more of the sector to EFRB, helping to cement the company’s already strong market position.
CEO of EFRB, Dr. Dean Cubley, sighted this latest development as a clear indication to oil and gas developers that the company remains committed to providing the premier communication services envelope to their rapidly growing customer base.
One can easily imagine site foremen breathing a sigh of relief, knowing that when and if the unthinkable happens, emergency services are just a phone call away and the personnel can get right to them with any simple GPS-enabled device using those coordinates. The name ERF Wireless should spread ever more rapidly throughout the sector as a result of this advancement. The broader enterprise, commercial, and residential markets served both domestically and internationally by the company and its subsidiaries are well aware of this tireless drive for innovation by ERFB.
ERFB management has 40 years of work in wireless broadband, as well as network integration, triple-play FTTH (fiber to the home), IPTV, and sophisticated content delivery methods. Employing bleeding-edge technology and the company’s proprietary CryptoVue® Network Security Appliance, ERFB has already made big waves in the banking industry (over 100 locations across three states), where the competitive edge the company is able to assert has crushed expensive T1 telephony solutions. Initiatives like the recent expansion of the product portfolio to include luxury resort community-targeted triple-play Voice, Video, and Internet system, combined with a rich menu of wireless broadband services, has enabled ERFB to create a dynamic, appealing turnkey solution that can be rolled out to global markets with ease.
Yes, the already impressive wireless network coverage available to customers in hydrocarbon rich development areas like Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Louisiana has just gotten much safer and much better, thanks to ERFB.
