Wolverine Exploration, Inc. (WOLV)
Willy Wizard and OTCPicks reported earlier on Wolverine Exploration, Inc. (WOLV), and we are highlighting the Company as “One to Watch” here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Incorporated in Nevada on February 23, 2006, Wolverine Exploration, Inc. is a junior exploration company with headquarters in Vancouver, British Columbia. Wolverine is an exploration stage company engaged in the business of the acquisition and exploration of base and precious metal mineral properties. The Company focuses on the exploration of mineral properties in Labrador, Canada. Wolverine’s shares trade on the OTC Bulletin Board.
The Company holds a 90 percent interest in 429 mineral claims. These claims cover an area of approximately 10,725 hectares (41 square miles) in central Labrador. The Labrador Claims are located approximately 120 km west of Goose Bay, Labrador. They contain a series of significant copper-gold showings. Concerning infrastructure and build-out, a year-round road traverses the property. The property is 68 miles to the nearest deep water port. In addition, a power line is within easy access and the property has near surface anomalies as well.
Mr. Ed Montague is the senior geologist for Wolverine Exploration. He is the former representative of the Department of Natural Resources of the provincial government. Mr. Montague was, in part, responsible for the promotion and development of Labrador's mineral resources. He spent 25 years with mining and engineering companies, including
Bechtel, Placer Dome, and United Keno Hill. He is a Professional Geoscientist (P. Geo.) registered with the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Newfoundland and Labrador.
The Company terminated exploratory drilling in October 2011. Wolverine has reassessed their options on their Cache River property in central Labrador. Of the 11 anomalies targeted only 4 underwent drilling prior to the shutdown. The results were not as high as expected and the cause of the anomalies in the drilling area on grid 1 was determined to be mainly magnetite with minor sulphides. The area drilled does not necessarily reflect the entire property - this was only a small portion of the total claim area.
There remain seven anomalous areas to be investigated. Most of those are 20 km remote from the 2011 drilling. They are centered in the area of the surface malachite showing discovered previously by the Company. There is also a high radiometric and magnetic anomalous area to the northeast. It was detected by the airborne survey that lies under an extensive muskeg where high surface scientillometer readings were noted. Wolverine considers this to be a priority 1 target as well. They plan to investigate the zone when drilling resumes this summer.

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 $0.30, up 7.14%, on 64,280 volume with 22 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 187,644, and its 52-week low/high is $0.21/$1.00.
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.

“The KleenSpeed team continues to demonstrate the performance of electric vehicles and advantages of our PowerPhase electric drive systems, providing exceptional power and efficiency with minimal weight,” said Eric Ridenour, UQM Technologies’ President and Chief Executive Officer. “We congratulate the team on their continued success on the track, as well as the awareness they are bringing to electric vehicle technologies.”
Kevin Mitz of Rennwerks Motorsports drove the EV-X11 in the Open Prototype class during the 4th annual ReFuel event. The EV-X11 beat its own record lap time by turning in a 1 minute, 32.046 second lap on Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. The KleenSpeed EV-X11 rode this record lap time to a first place finish in its class over a variety of other vehicles, including a Tesla Model S Prototype.
“The performance of the KleenSpeed EV-X11 electric race car validates the disruptive technology of the KleenSpeed genESSsys(TM) Race energy storage systems,” said Tim Collins, President of KleenSpeed Technologies. “The UQM PowerPhase electric motor and controller are a great match for our system, making efficient use of the available power and requiring minimal space in the vehicle.”
UQM previously announced that it is also working with KleenSpeed on the company’s World KAR platform that made its debut at the Stanford University 2012 Vehicle Concept Showcase. This vehicle uses the PowerPhase Pro(R) 100 electric propulsion system.

Yesterday, Zogenix announced it has initiated its first IND clinical trial for Relday, a product candidate for treating schizophrenia that is based on a combination of the company’s DosePro needle-free, subcutaneous drug delivery system and a proprietary subcutaneous, once-monthly formulation of risperidone. The Relday phase 1 clinical trial is a single-center, open label, safety and pharmacokinetic trial that will enroll 30 patients with chronic, stable schizophrenia, or schizoaffective disorder. The company anticipates the study results will be available by the end of 2012. Additional study information is available at www.clinicaltrials.gov, reference NCT01592110.
Relday represents a significant opportunity for Zogenix to leverage its DosePro system in combination with a novel long-acting formulation of an established antipsychotic, providing psychiatrists and patients with an improved treatment option. The company looks forward to finishing the trial by year’s end, anticipating that discussion can then begin with potential partners for global development and commercialization.
Risperidone is one of the most widely prescribed medications used for treating schizophrenia symptoms in adults and teens 13 and older. The worldwide market for long-acting injectable antipsychotics was around $2 billion last year, with currently approved products that use a 12-gauge or larger needle for intramuscular injections. The current leading product in that category requires twice-monthly dosing and drug reconstitution before use. The combined market for oral and injectable antipsychotics was estimated at more than $16 billion in 2010.
Relday, if approved, will be the first subcutaneous, needle-free antipsychotic product enabling once-monthly dosing. The company believes that Relday will provide an improved pharmacokinetic profile, substantial reduction in injection volume, and a simpler dosing regimen due to DURECT’s (NASDAQ: DRRX) SABER controlled-release depot technology combined with Zogenix’s DosePro needle-free subcutaneous drug delivery system.
Zogenix is a pharmaceutical company specializing in the commercialization and development of products for treating central nervous system disorders and pain. The company’s first commercial product, SUMAVEL DosePro (sumatriptan injection) Needle-free Delivery System, was launched in January of 2010 for acute treatment of migraine and cluster headaches. The company’s lead investigational product candidate is Zohydro (hydrocodone bitartrate), which is a novel oral, single-entity (without acetaminophen), extended-release formulation of hydrocodone at various strengths, intended to be administered every 12 hours for around-the-clock management of moderate to severe chronic pain. An NDA was submitted to the FDA for Zohydro in May of 2012. The company’s second DosePro investigational product candidate is Relday – a proprietary, long-acting injectable formulation of risperidone for treating schizophrenia.

STWA continues expanding their portfolio of proprietary applied oil and fuel delivery solutions (developed with and exclusively licensed from Temple University) for the multi-billion dollar oil pipeline and diesel engine markets, reporting today that China’s biggest oil producer PetroChina and the China Petroleum Pipeline Administration’s (CPP) lab testing of the company’s Applied Oil Technology™ (AOT) has generated successful results, leading to approval for Phase II Field Loop Testing.
Testing was specifically focused on three of China’s most widely produced/consumed oil grades (Daqing, Changqing, and Venezuela crude oil) in order to examine the viscosity reduction capabilities of STWA’s AOT technology across all major metrics. The AOT technology could save China’s booming oil industry huge sums of money by improving oil transportation costs, good news for the fastest growing oil consuming nation on earth, and good news for STWA, who stands poised to reap the rich rewards of this influential relationship.
After Phase II, progression to a Phase III commercial pilot program should be swift, as these three phases represent the basic regulatory hurdle faced by all emerging domestic/imported pipeline technologies and tend to speed up as each barrier is cleared. Beijing Heng He Xing Ye Technology, STWA’s commercialization partner for China (who is responsible for the full costs of implementing testing and obtaining certification, as per the March 15, Cooperation Framework Agreement), has indicated that the projections for Phase III would see the AOT technology implemented on a 186-mile, 27″ pipeline going up in Shandong Province. CPP/CNPC has already cleared the way forward with Phase II authorization to begin the field testing at CNPC’s Pipeline Flow Assurance Test Center and have published their report on the extant testing done at the Pipeline R&D Center.
According to CNPC, China’s largest oil and natural gas producer, the Daqing oil region is one of the most prolific on earth, with the Changqing Oilfield pumping out a whopping 20M tons of crude in 2011 alone (one-fifth of CNPC’s total output and one tenth of China’s annual output). Combined with skyrocketing Venezuelan imports (125.9k bbl/day in 2010, more than tripling in the five years since 2005 according to a U.S. Energy Information Administration report), this presents a very unique oil transportation situation for China to manage and the testing thus far has largely been aimed at presenting a major solution to the situation.
CEO of STWA, Cecil Bond Kyte, underscored deliberate testing of the three main oils used in China as providing a huge, approachable means of helping to achieve the 16% energy intensity reduction goal set by the Chinese government for 2015. Exactly the kind of energy efficiency solution the company was formed to help create and a real testament to the scalability of the AOT technology, which could see much wider ranging application after this major implementation.
Not hard to imagine many, many other companies beating a path to STWA’s door after this and even a cursory look at some direct quotes from the report is enough to convince one of such. Direct statements that the AOT viscosity reduction technology has the ability to significantly curb viscosity on all three major oils (Daqing, Changqing, and Venezuela crude oil, with the particularly effective results from testing Daqing/Changqing oil noted explicitly), go a long way to ensuring other clients of the technology’s efficacy and have certainly piqued the interest of sector investors.
Statements to the effect that testing showed 80% viscosity reduction (at 35-40ºC) for Daqing crude and over 78% (at 26ºC) on Changqing crude, validated as lasting more than 24 hours, gives the larger oil industry a very clear picture of the potential of this technology, which, according to the report, “reduces the viscosity very fast, in a couple of seconds, and consumes little energy.” The report called the AOT technology, based on testing results, a “breakthrough in crude oil viscosity reduction,” and cited the broad international appeal in both paraffin and asphalt based crude oils.
The report indicates that CPP and U.S. experts will continue to work hand-in-hand towards tailoring the perfect solution for China’s burgeoning oil industry and points to the AOT technology as being a real potential game-changer for China’s high-risk crude oil transportation industry.
