Founded in 1997, Candente Copper Corp. is developing the large scale, 100 percent owned, 7.5 billion pound, Feasibility stage Canariaco Norte Copper Project located in northern Peru's prolific mining district. The Company, together with their subsidiaries, engages in the acquisition, exploration, and development of mineral properties in Peru. They mainly explore for copper, gold, silver, and molybdenum. Candente Copper has their headquarters in Vancouver, British Columbia. The Company’s shares trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange.
The Company's Canariaco Norte deposit contains a Measured and Indicated resource of 752.4 million tonnes grading 0.49 percent copper equivalent and an Inferred Resource of 157.7 million tonnes at 0.44 percent copper equivalent. A second mineralized copper porphyry, Canariaco Sur, has been discovered adjacent to the Canariaco Norte deposit. Excellent evidence exists for the presence of a porphyry deposit at the Quebrada Verde target. Both offer the potential to expand significantly the scope of the Canariaco copper project.
Canariaco Norte, Canariaco Sur and the third target, Quebrada Verde, are part of an extensive porphyry complex covering a minimum length of five kilometers and an average width of two kilometers. The porphyry complex is covered entirely by the Canariaco property that is held 100 percent by Candente. Geological mapping, geophysics and geochemical sampling by Candente, and by Billiton in 1999 (including limited drilling), indicate a strong potential for additional porphyry copper-gold mineralization within the complex
Candente Copper completed a financing for $30 million in February 2011. The Company is well funded for their near-term goals. These are the completion of a Feasibility Study on the Canariaco Norte copper project and extensive exploration drilling on the Canariaco Sur and Quebrada Verde targets.

Trading on the OTC Bulletin Board, International Isotopes, Inc. manufactures a complete range of nuclear medicine calibration and reference standards, high purity fluoride gases, and a variety of cobalt-60 products such as teletherapy sources. The Company also provides a broad selection of radioisotopes and radiochemicals for medical devices, calibration, clinical research, life sciences, and industrial applications. Furthermore, they provide a host of analytical, measurement, recycling, and processing services on a contract basis to clients. International Isotopes is based in Idaho Falls, Idaho.
The Company's core business consists of six reportable segments. These include Nuclear Medicine Standards, Cobalt Products, Radiochemical Products, Fluorine Products, Radiological Services, and Transportation. International Isotopes is in the licensing and design phase of their planned environmentally friendly, green technology, uranium de-conversion and fluorine extraction processing facility located near Hobbs, New Mexico. The Company believes this new commercial facility will provide an excellent commercial opportunity. They hold patents that give them exclusive rights for the Fluorine Extraction Process (FEP), a process that produces high value, high purity fluoride gasses in conjunction with uranium de-conversion.
International Isotopes has developed a unique process to convert depleted uranium tails (the by-product produced from the enrichment of uranium) to ultra high purity, high value industrial fluoride products. Fluoride products are a key raw material for microelectronics, fiber optic cable, thin film photovoltaics (solar cells) and many other manufacturing processes. In November 2011, International Isotopes announced that they completed an agreement in principle with Idaho State University to develop, jointly, processes for the production of Copper-67. Copper-67 has shown exceptional potential in the treatment of non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma as well as bladder, colorectal, and ovarian cancers. However, it is a difficult isotope to produce and has not been consistently made available in the United States.
At the end of May, International Isotopes announced that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) completed their review and approval of the final Safety Evaluation Report (SER) for the Company's planned depleted uranium de-conversion and fluorine extraction processing facility. NRC approval is a major milestone in the licensing process for International Isotopes’ planned facility.
Recently, International Isotopes announced the completion of a $3 Million Private Placement on July 27, 2012 that is expected to fund the remainder of Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) license activities for the planned uranium de-conversion and fluorine extraction processing facility and support expansion in several of the Company's existing core business segments in Idaho.

The company's strong emphasis on health, fitness, and community has served marketing initiatives very well.

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 $0.28, even with yesterday's close, on 34,250 volume with 14 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 24,092, 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.

Duma Energy Corp. (DUMA) is an aggressive growth company actively producing oil and gas in the domestic United States, both on and offshore.

The company's primary goal for fiscal year 2012 and beyond is to drive earnings growth. The company also aims to pursue listing on major exchange(s) to provide better visibility and liquidity to shareholders and financial partners. Already producing and generating revenue from oil and gas in Texas, Illinois, and Louisiana, Duma projects domestic production to exceed 1,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boepd) by the end of 2012; with 2,500 boepd projected by the end of 2013.
Duma was founded in 2005 and began trading on the OTCBB in 2009 via registration. In 2006, the company began producing from its first properties in Texas and soon after added production in Louisiana. In 2009, its new CEO Jeremy G. Driver came on board. Within one year, Mr. Driver had identified and negotiated an acquisition that would fundamentally reshape the company. This acquisition was made possible by the large direct cash investment by Mr. Driver and his family, as well as other investors.
The company uses only industry standard and time-tested technologies, and avoids unproven "resource plays" and other opportunities that are heavily dependent upon high commodity prices. Not bound by any geographical location or operational strategy, Duma's management team is focused on developing its existing portfolio while pursuing additional opportunities that provide rapid growth, leveraging growing revenue, cash flow, and reserves to accelerate its growth strategy.

When it comes to consumer goods, one of the most important forms of product advertising has nothing to do with television, billboards, or social media. It’s the product packaging. Developing product packaging to present a clear and unique message to the consumer is one of the most effective ways to get them to buy. Why go to all the trouble of getting hard-to-win shelf space for your product and not use it to maximum advantage?
Think about it: The consumer is already in the store or other point of sale, they are already thinking of buying something, and they will spend most of their time looking at products and making active purchasing decisions while browsing. As a vendor, there is absolutely no better time or place to get your message right and to define your brand. And your product’s packaging is the principal medium for communicating that message.
For Skinny Nutritional, makers of various enhanced health drinks, the goal is to make it clear to the consumer that their drinks offer something different and better than anything else on the shelf. Skinny Water, the company’s flagship brand, is a line of exclusive 100% naturally flavored waters containing zero-sugar, zero-carbs, zero calories, and zero sodium, together with customized blends of nutrients and electrolytes designed for a growing market of consumers focused on health as well as taste.
To this end, the company plans to launch an innovative bottle with new packaging, now scheduled for some time in 2013. The specially shaped 16-oz. bottle will display a full sleeve label with bright colors and bold message to drive the key selling points of taste and health. The idea is to immediately capture consumers interested in more than the calorie/sodium laden offerings that masquerade as health drinks.

When Duma Energy, an aggressively growing Houston-based oil and gas exploration and production company, recently announced an agreement to acquire Namibia Exploration, Inc., a company that holds the rights to a 39% working interest in an onshore petroleum concession of roughly 5.3 million acres in northern Namibia on Africa’s southwest coast, it represented a major step forward. Until this time, Duma had focused on domestic oil and gas, with major production coming from off-shore wells in the shallow waters of Galveston Bay and Trinity Bay near Houston, Texas.
But Duma’s African acquisition did not diverge from the company’s clearly stated strategy, which basically calls for developing domestic production and cash flow in order to fund high-impact international opportunities. In the case of the Namibia concession, the company called the exploration potential high with preliminary data being encouraging. Although it is assumed that most of the world’s oil rich sites have already been identified, the fact is that Africa remains largely unexplored. What success has already been found there only hints at the huge continent’s remaining potential.
Namibia itself is roughly the size of Venezuela, but without the heavy vegetation. Namibia is mostly sunny and dry, encouraging to exploration. The country is fairly sparsely populated, with strong ties to South Africa, and has a significant mining sector supported by a stable government. The Owambo Basin, the location of the concession, is huge, extending into Angola, a major oil producing country for Africa, and is said to have all of the key ingredients for becoming a major oil province. The fact that exploration and operations will be onshore significantly reduces costs.

Medical technology company CONMED Corp. and Viking Systems, Inc., a 3D and 2D visualization solutions company, have reached an agreement under which CONMED will acquire Viking for $0.27 per share in cash, representing a 42 percent premium over the closing price of Viking’s common stock on August 13 for a total purchase price of approximately $22.5 million.
Viking’s lead product is the Viking 3D-HD Vision System, an advanced 3D vision system used by surgeons during complex minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery, and is believed to be the only stand-alone 3D laparoscopic vision system on the market that is both FDA-cleared and CE-marked.
“The Viking line of 3-D High Definition surgical video products represents a strategic addition to our general surgical imaging franchise,” Joseph J. Corasanti, president and CEO of CONMED stated in the press release. “Viking is at the forefront of three dimensional HD surgical imaging, and we believe that merging this technology with our established worldwide marketing and sales teams will expand the use of superior surgical visualization benefiting both surgeons and their patients.”
Per the agreement, a wholly owned subsidiary of CONMED will commence a tender offer to purchase all of Viking’s outstanding shares of common stock, after which CONMED will acquire all remaining shares not tendered into the offer through a second-step merger at the same price as in the tender offer. The tender offer is expected to be launched around August 27, 2012.
CONMED said it expects the transaction to close in the fourth quarter of 2012.
