Lorraine Copper Corp. (LLC.V)
We are reporting on Lorraine Copper Corp. (LLC.V) today, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Lorraine Copper Corp. is a holding company for the Lorraine-Jajay property. This property hosts a number of copper and gold occurrences. Lorraine Copper originated in a spin out of the Lorraine-Jajay assets from Eastfield Resources Ltd. and Lysander Minerals Ltd. Lorraine Copper was first listed for trading on the TSX-Venture Exchange on April 18, 2008. The Company has their headquarters in Vancouver, British Columbia.
The Lorraine property is in north-central British Columbia. Teck optioned the Lorraine project in June of 2005. They incurred a total of $9.0 million in expenditures to earn a 51 percent interest in the property in February 2011. Teck may increase their interest in the Lorraine project to 60 percent by completing a feasibility study and to 65 percent by arranging production financing for Lorraine Copper.
The Lorraine property is located in the Omineca region of British Columbia. It is approximately 280 kilometers northwest of Prince George. The combined property covers an area of approximately 39,046 ha (96,481 acres). It hosts a large number of copper-gold occurrences related to alkalic intrusives. The Lorraine project is well served by resource infrastructure. This includes all season roads, the Kemess power corridor to the northeast, and the Canadian National Railway (CNR) line to the southwest.
The Lorraine Main Area is divided into the Lower Main Zone and Upper Main Zone. To the immediate southeast are the South Main, Weber, Copper Peak and Bishop Zones. These are theorized to be part of the Lorraine Main Area, and together may make up one large system.
Other zones a greater distance to the south or southeast include 2 Good, Rhonda, Dorothy, and MacKenzie. To the northwest of the Lorraine Main Area are the All Alone Dome, Slide, Boundary, Misty and the Cirque/Fault zones. Teck drilled the Slide Zone in 2007. In addition to these known zones of mineralization, there are several other anomalies and prospective areas that remain untested.
This year, a NI43-101 compliant resource calculation was completed. It outlined a substantial deposit, which has considerable room for expansion. The Main Zone-Bishop Zone area offers good potential for establishing a core resource from which exploration on other occurrences can add to. Also of significance are the high grades in copper and gold for the resources.

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 $0.27, up 3.85%, on 207,325 volume with 33 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 28,451, 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 QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Duma Energy Corp. (DUMA). Today, Duma Energy Corp. closed trading at $1.51, even with yesterday's close. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 7,812, and its 52-week low/high is $1.10/$4.00.
Duma Energy Corp. (DUMA) is an aggressive growth company actively producing oil and gas in the domestic United States, both on and offshore. Leveraging its technical expertise, promising portfolio, and strong financial condition, the company plans to utilize domestic revenues and cash flow to fund its rapid growth through acquisition, while participating in transformational projects with the potential of providing exponential returns for shareholders.
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.

Skinny Nutritional today announced the introduction of its latest product Skinny Water pH+, a high alkaline and electrolyte water that the company believes will change the way consumers think about the water they drink.
Inspired by the alkaline diet favored by celebrities, medical practitioners, and a health-conscious generation, Skinny Water pH+ is fortified with minerals to keep the body balanced. Rich in magnesium, zinc, and potassium, an alkaline diet is known for helping promote overall well-being — from higher energy levels to clearer skin, increased metabolism, mental clarity, and immunity.
There is also reason to believe that keeping the body alkaline will encourage weight loss. And because the human body is about 60% water, drinking high pH water helps balance the body’s chemistry, optimizing health.
Skinny Water pH+ is formulated with select minerals and pure hydration to deliver an alkaline boost anytime, anywhere. At a suggested retail price of $1.99 per liter, it is a cost-effective way to get alkaline water, compared to state-of-the-art filtration systems that cost several thousand dollars.
“The body is in an alkaline state when it reaches 7 on a scale of 1 to 10. Our bodies tend to be more acidic due to the acidic nature of the typical American diet that consists of soft drinks and processed foods. Skinny Water pH+ targets a pH level of 8 to 9 to help keep the body in balance,” states Michael Salaman, CEO of Skinny Water.
Complementing the brand’s flavored waters, Skinny Water pH+ is crystal clear, with a pure and crisp taste that infuses a boost of electrolytes for replenishment and added energy. The charged water product provides pure hydration with the electrolytes and alkalinity needed to maintain balance. It’s been designed to be the drink of choice for a positive, health-conscious lifestyle.
To maximize sales potential, Skinny Water pH+ will be displayed alongside education materials at point of sale with the tagline Body in Balance® — “three simple words that sum up a world of difference.”

Although headlines heralding the end of the personal computer can rightfully be considered overly dramatic, the rapid ascent of cloud processing gives some legitimacy to visions of a world where the devices we physically touch are little more than powerful front-ends. Accelerating communications technology has made it all possible, but what is there about cloud processing that makes it desirable? GlobalWise Investments, an Ohio based company that has embraced and helped drive cloud technology for its own unique business applications, provides some real life examples of what cloud processing means, both to vendors and the customers they serve.
GlobalWise, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Intellinetics, provides both public and private organizations a way to deal with what is becoming a growing and costly problem, the necessary storage and access of thousands, sometimes millions, of daily documents. It’s not unusual for a company or government agency to have up to 85% of their critical content trapped as unstructured data, making it difficult, sometimes impossible, to find when it is needed. In some cases the information is effectively lost, existing somewhere within the organization, but requiring simply too much time to be worth locating.
GlobalWise and Intellinetics are using cloud processing, together with advanced ECM (Enterprise Content Management) technology, to turn a common problem into an operational advantage.

Houston-based oil and gas exploration and production company Duma Energy represents a new wave of global oil and gas exploration with its recently announced move to actively explore in Namibia, on the southwest coast of Africa. Historically, the oil and gas industry was focused on the Americas, followed in the second half of the 20th century by the Middle East, and now Russia, China, and Europe. African producers, such as Nigeria, Libya, Algeria, and Angola, were second-tier.
However, Africa is split up into some 54 individual nations. When viewed as a whole, it becomes clear that Africa has a great deal to offer and ranks much closer to the top in the global resource list. With well over a billion barrels of proven oil reserves, Africa represents a significant slice of the world’s fossil resources, and production continues to increase. While the easy to negotiate sands of Arabia have dominated the world’s oil industry, offering massive supplies that are centrally located with direct access to the sea, attention is turning to other areas of the world. Although untold resources may still lie in parts of the world’s oceans, the intimidating costs of offshore drilling is steering industry attention to the still largely unexplored continent of Africa.
Namibia, on the continent’s southwest coast, is still a relatively small player in the oil industry, but, like much of Africa, it remains underexplored. It is known to have both gas and oil, and its strong ties to South Africa, from which it split off, have left it with access to a fairly substantial oil infrastructure. Duma’s interests lie in the northern part of Namibia, where it now holds a working interest in a petroleum concession of approximately 5.3 million acres. The concession is located in the Owambo Basin, a huge area that extends across the northern border into Angola, one of Africa’s major oil producing countries. The company’s exploration efforts are well-funded through its ongoing and stable domestic production operations in Texas.

HII Technologies, a development-stage hydrocarbon field services company (with a solid 10-year track record prior to formation on the design/manufacturing side in valves), reported a big move forward today with the signing of a non-binding LOI to acquire the assets of fellow Texas-based oilfield services firm AES.
The Houston-based HIIT, already steeped in the most advanced hardware and methodologies for water handling services, could be strengthened considerably by the vast, high-volume water services expertise accrued by AES during some five decades of domestic operations. AES has some of the best 10-inch aluminum mobile piping solutions available today for this kind of high-volume water handling work and is well known already in the industry for circumspect attention to all the details of environmental safety, with cutting-edge, no-leak systems designed to offer fracking operators optimal throughput.
With some $860k in revenues coming in the door in the last six-month alone (unaudited, period ending in July), were talking a 33% free cash flow from existing customer base on some $300k/month, a superb deal for HIIT shareholders. Closing is projected for within the next sixty days, subject to customary closing conditions (definitive agreement, due diligence, government approvals if any, and approval by the boards of each company), as well as requisite procurement by HIIT of a $1M credit line. An independent audit of extant AES financial data will coincide with the closing and, given the profitability, HIIT sees a solid addition to EPS from the deal.
It’s a perfect fit really; HIIT’s logistical muscle will provide an ample, fertile soil for AES’s anticipated high growth rate, feeding off the bounty of their nationally recognized Texas E&P
customers. The increasing volume of domestic oilfield activity is a gold mine for the resultant, a combined business structure that realizes the potential of each entity, with HIIT acting as an extensibility framework.
CEO of HIIT, Matt Flemming, expressed the rigorous analytical/strategic acquisition efforts that led up to the deal (as per the July 11 press release to this effect) and praised the company’s hard work in evaluating the many candidates vetted thus far. The extensive negotiation efforts and meticulous systems analysis performed by the company has turned up a choice candidate in 50-year industry veteran AES, with awesome target market parallels.
Flemming explained that the some of the target candidates looked at during the massive sensor sweep are debt free and that many have a solid profitability record, granting HIIT considerable structural leverage for further value accumulation, with some really nice acquisition financing metrics. Flemming is clearly tipping his hat to shareholders here and further expressed that acquiring one or more of these targets would allow the firm to utilize their $30M tax loss carry-forward momentum to construct an even more solid value foundation. Something for investors to take note of as this Texas-grown energy services company continues to emerge as a permanent fixture of the sector’s landscape.
