Copper Creek Gold Corp. (CPV.V)
Today we are highlighting Copper Creek Gold Corp. (CPV.V), here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Copper Creek Gold Corp. explores mineral projects that Company management believes have the potential for a world class mineral discovery. They identify properties within prolific mining camps, with exploration targets that have been overlooked by previous operators, and that have the potential of quickly creating significant value for shareholders. Copper Creek Gold lists on the TSX Venture Exchange. The Company has their headquarters in Vancouver, British Columbia (BC).
The first two "high-impact" exploration projects for Copper Creek Gold are the Bonsai project, in the Eskay Creek area of northern BC, and the Santa Lucia project in the Sierra Madre gold belt in Mexico. Recently, the Company acquired 4 mineral properties, totaling 13,300 hectares. This is in the Blackwater gold area where Richfield Venture Corp. has recently made a significant new gold discovery.
Copper Creek Gold's Bonsai claims are adjacent to Barrick Gold's Eskay Creek Mine holdings. They lie only 6 km S.W. of the Eskay Creek mine site itself.

The Company’s intention is to conduct a highly detailed ground geophysical survey this summer over the known airborne geophysics to pinpoint its drill targets.
Santa Lucia was the site of extensive exploration by Cominco Ltd. in the 1980s and 1990s. Epithermal gold and silver mineralization on the northern portion of the Santa Lucia project will be the focus of Copper Creek's upcoming exploration on this large property in Sonora, Mexico.
Copper Creek Gold, in the spring of 2011, set out to acquire a land position in the new Richfield discovery area of the Nechako plateau. The Company has the aforementioned four properties in the region. These are The Badger, Bandit, Smokey, and Little Bear properties. Together, these properties comprise 13,337 hectares.
Recently, Copper Creek Gold announced that field crews are now undergoing mobilization to the Company's Bandit copper-silver-gold exploration property located in the Blackwater area of central British Columbia. Last year, Copper Creek established a large, 2km x 5km copper-silver-gold MMI (mobile metal ion) anomaly on the Bandit property. The Company’s field crews will now be conducting a program of infill MMI sampling in preparation for a 2000 meter, 20 hole, percussion drill program planned for August 2012.

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, even for the day, on 58,223 volume with 32 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 187,255, 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.

Skinny Nutritional Corp. (SKNY)
The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Skinny Nutritional Corp. (SKNY). Today, Skinny Nutritional Corp. closed trading at $0.0065, off by 1.52%, on 2,469,284 volume with 23 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 2,509,229, and its 52-week low/high is $0.0052/$0.068.
Skinny Nutritional Corp. (SKNY) has established their Skinny Water® brand as a clear alternative to other products in the enhanced water space, with the only true zero calorie, sugar, carb, sodium, and preservative-containing beverage available. Skinny Water's proprietary formulation of essential antioxidant agents, electrolytes, and the critical vitamins our bodies need in order to achieve optimal function, uses 100% natural flavors, no preservatives, no artificial colors, and only the best purified water.
The company has constructed a network of approximately 50 domestic distributors (with three more internationally), placing product on shelves approximately 15k stores across the United States. Derived from the natural flavors contained in fruits, Skinny Water represents a fortified, extremely low-impact, great-tasting array of beverages that provide a concentrated punch of the nutrients essential for a healthier lifestyle.
The company's strong emphasis on health, fitness, and community has served marketing initiatives very well. The new age beverage segment has seen increasing momentum in recent years, with just about every beverage company getting into the game, but none of them has the kind of no-nonsense product composition behind Skinny Water, something that appeals directly to the majority of the core consumer market.
Skinny Nutritional continues to build value around the Skinny Water brand, and today has numerous trademarks in the healthy beverage and snack food categories. As consumers migrate away from sugar based beverages and empty calories, Skinny Water is ideally positioned to benefit from positive market trends as management focuses on delivering exceptional value to shareholders.

Along with the growing development of stem cell technology as a tool for both research and therapeutics, stem cell banking has become more widespread, both in the U.S. and around the world. The preservation of stem cells, whether sourced and preserved for an individual family or the general population, is seen as an important way to cost effectively facilitate the availability of stem cells, and different stem cell banks have been set up to hold stem cells of different types.
One stem cell bank, UniStemCell bank, is unique in the world, because it holds the life science industry’s first collection of non-embryonic histocompatible human stem cells, available for research and commercial use. International Stem Cell Corporation’s proprietary technique for creating such histocompatible stem cells, a process called parthenogenesis, uses unfertilized human eggs. By so doing, the process avoids the controversy of using stem cells from human embryos, and also results in the stem cells inheriting a duplicate set of human leukocyte antigen genes. This significantly reduces the possibility of the derived cells being rejected by an individual’s immune system, making a single cell line suitable for treating millions of individuals. A relatively small number of such stem cell lines could be enough to provide immune-matched cells to a significant percentage of the world’s population.
For International Stem Cell Corp., revenue could be generated from universal stem cell bank franchises across populations and scientists accessing these lines. This will provide additional validation of the hpSC lines as they are tested and developed by others across a range of potential applications. Later, the arrangement will provide the company with royalty from sales of each successful hpSC-derived cellular therapeutic.

Headquartered in Bala Cynwyd, PA, and operating in the rapidly evolving enhanced water/sports drink/beverage industry (which has seen such spectacular successes as Snapple and Arizona Iced Tea), Skinny Nutritional Corporation’s business model revolves around Skinny Water®.
This proprietary, water-based product, which contains no sugar, sodium, or preservatives, is augmented with key electrolytes, antioxidants, and vitamins. Offered in nine unique flavor medleys based on 100-percent natural flavors, the Skinny Water line includes: Acai Grape Blueberry, Peach Mango, Mandarin, Raspberry Pomegranate, Orange Cranberry Tangerine, Lemonade Passionfruit, and – as part of its line of Sport’s drinks – Blue Raspberry, Pink Berry Citrus, Goji Black Cherry and Kiwi Lime. The Raspberry Pomegranate flavor features the clinically tested weight-loss ingredient, Super CitriMax (hydroxycitric acid or HCA), plus a healthful blend of calcium and potassium.
In addition to its line of beverages, the company also owns a number of Skinny-related trademarks in both the Snacks & Meals category and the Advertising Slogans niche. In this latter, use of the word “Skinny” targets a very specific segment of consumers, namely those who are health conscious and want to lose or maintain an ideal weight. This market is comprised of five segments, according to a 2010 Nielsen study based on National Marketing Institute data. These five include Magic Bullets (24 percent), or consumers who believe that supplements, Rx, and pills will help them reach fitness goals, and the Eat, Drink & Be Merries (22 percent) – a segment that measures younger shoppers looking for intense natural flavors on a budget. According to a 2009 Euromonitor estimate, by 2012 the global health and wellness market is expected to be valued at more than $550 billion, with the healthy beverage industry turning away from carbonated soft drinks to products like juices and sports (energy) drinks.
The company’s business strategy aims to take advantage of this trend by developing a variety of healthy weight-loss foods and beverages capitalizing on the Skinny trademarks: Skinny Water ®, Skinny Tea®, Skinny Shakes®, Skinny Java®, Skinny Smoothies™, Skinny Bar™, Skinny Snacks™, SkinnyTinis™, and others. Management is also looking at the development of new products, including new Skinny Water flavors and pure water with balanced pH+ electrolytes, as well as Teas, Shakes, Smoothies, and Javas.
Utilizing its chain of about 50 United States distributors and three international vendors, the company is able to place its product on shelves in approximately 15,000 stores, providing a market driver in brand recognition that will yield a significant footprint in the expanding new age beverage operation. This network of retailers includes: 7-Eleven, Ahold, CVS, Harris Teeter, select Walgreens stores, Shop Rite, SuperValu, Target, and Wegmans.
Another distribution network focuses on direct-store-delivery (DSD) beverage distributors, such as Canada Dry Bottling Company of New York, Canada Dry Delaware Valley, Canada Dry Potomac, Hensley Corp, Polar Beverage,7Up Reno, 7Up Modesto, and many others throughout the continental U.S.
Finally, the company’s focus on health, fitness and community, coupled with a quality product that appeals directly to a core consumer market looking for a healthful drink without a lot of gimmicks, empty calories, or exotic and potentially harmful ingredients, is sure to appeal to shareholders looking for an equally valuable, non-gimmicky investment.

Although the idea of recycling is nothing new, few people realize the scope or growth of the modern recycling industry, or the size of its potential. Modern recycling is relatively young, with only a few decades under its belt. Nevertheless, nearly one third of all solid waste generated is now estimated to be recycled in one form or another. This is a remarkable figure considering the immensity of waste material produced on a daily basis in industrialized nations like the U.S.
According to the EPA, Americans, separate from industrial waste, generate roughly 250 million tons of trash each year, a figure that has understandably been on the rise as the population increases, although the per capita generation of waste has leveled off, and even slightly decreased. The EPA says that, nationally, we now recycle and compost just over 85 million tons of such solid waste, providing an annual benefit of more than 186 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions reduced, comparable to the annual greenhouse gas emissions from over 36 million passenger vehicles. In addition, they indicate that recycling and composting more than 85 million tons of such material has resulted in the saving of more than 1.3 quadrillion Btu of energy, the equivalent of over 229 million barrels of oil. So recycling is now a big and very serious business, increasingly seen as critical to achieving the world’s environmental goals.
USA Recycling is fast becoming a lead player in American recycling by providing a growing network of recyclable waste collection and disposal service centers. These centers are currently focused on serving the automotive aftermarket industry, where they collect scrap metal, used tires and batteries, and even used motor oil and lubricants, from automotive service centers around the country. The material is then sent to steel mills, re-refining centers, and other operations where it can be safely processed to stay out of America’s landfills.

Applied Visual Sciences, an image analysis software technology company, has developed intelligent, cutting-edge imaging analytics and informatics technologies for extracting, analyzing, and detecting objects-of-interest within any still or video digital image format. The company has originated a pioneering technology platform for the automated analysis of digital imagery to extract information that can lead to the detection and identification of health-threatening diseases and explosive materials that threaten human safety and the security of critical infrastructure.
Extraction of intelligence from digital images is continually being limited by the shortcomings of human vision. No amount of training can overcome or compensate for the limitations of the human eye. Technology remains the only solution to the complex problems of image analysis. APVS’ patented machine recognition algorithms overcome the restrictions of human vision by seeing things that human eyes can’t. The company accelerates the speed of decision-making by presenting original images in ways that show otherwise indiscernible information.
APVS’ technologies save lives through automated target recognition. Unfortunate recent events have shown the inability of sophisticated scanning equipment – machines like baggage and people scanners – to prevent destruction of critical infrastructure and loss of human life. Most modern-day scanners generate high-quality images but leave image interpretation up to a human screener. Unfortunately, the complexity of identifying a shapeless and concealed explosive in a highly cluttered image is beyond the physical capabilities of human vision. APVS’ PinPoint device automates target recognition – thereby saving lives and protecting critical infrastructure.
APVS also saves lives through diagnosing tuberculosis, which is the leading killer among infectious diseases and accounts for around 1.8 million deaths every year. Fast, accurate diagnostic testing must be the first step in any defense against the spread of this disease. The company’s Signature Mapping TBDx targets laboratory shortcomings – automating the smear microscopy process, which includes the automated diagnosis of mycobacterium tuberculosis at high sensitivity and specificity levels. TBDx is capable of processing 200 stained sputum slides per microscope without human intervention.
Currently holding six patents, APVS has several applications under review. The company’s two wholly owned subsidiaries, Guardian Technologies International, Inc. and Signature Mapping Medical Sciences, Inc., have developed cutting-edge image analysis applications utilizing this intellectual property for specific market segments. Guardian Technologies International specializes in the development of automated target recognition software solutions for the homeland security and military marketplaces. Signature Mapping Medical Sciences is focused on developing automated medical diagnostic and decision support software solutions for radiology and laboratory/pathology applications.
