Lithium Corp. (LTUM)
SmarTrend Newsletters and FNNO Newsletters reported on Lithium Corp. (LTUM), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Lithium Corp. is an exploration stage mining company with headquarters in Reno, Nevada. The Company engages in the identification, acquisition and exploration of metals and minerals with a focus on lithium mineralization on properties located in Nevada. Their current operational focus is to conduct exploration activities on their properties in Nevada, known as the Fish Lake Valley property, the Salt Wells property, and the San Emidio prospect.
On each prospect, the Company has defined a surficial lithium-in-brine anomaly. The exploration and development of these projects is ongoing. Concerning Fish Lake Valley, Lithium holds Placer claims that cover approximately 6,400 acres. Fish Lake Valley is in West Central Nevada, Northern Esmeralda country. Near surface brine sampling in April/May 2011 encountered lithium/boron enriched brines with results of up to 140mg/L lithium. In addition, boron is also elevated with values up to 2500 mg/L., and Potassium is also enriched, with results up to 7200 mg/L.
Lithium’s Salt Wells property was acquired through staking a 12,320 acre parcel that covers the Eightmile Basin, a playa, which lies approximately 15 miles to the southeast of Fallon, the county seat of Churchill County, Nevada. Exploratory sediment sampling of the playa took place in the summer and fall of 2009; 83 percent of the samples taken within the claim area so far have returned anomalous values in lithium, with the highest value being in the order of 750 ppm Li.
The Company staked a 1,600 acre block of claims in the San Emidio Valley during September 2011. San Emidio is in Northwestern Nevada, Washoe County. These claims cover the most prospective portion of the playa where ongoing sampling has determined anomalous concentrations of Lithium occur in sediments, and in brines.
In July, Lithium announced that they started a geotechnical survey on the Fish Lake Valley playa in Esmeralda County, Nevada. The current survey will determine if the area of the playa considered most prospective for hosting lithium-boron-potassium-bearing brines has dried enough to support a light-weight drill rig. Lithium’s intention is to drill this prospect as soon as possible this year. If the playa continues to dry subsequent to this Phase I program, then they will consider mobilizing a heavier machine to drill deeper exploratory boreholes a little later this year.

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 $0.26, up 1.96%, on 62,859 volume with 18 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 38,698, and its 52-week low/high is $0.21/$0.97.
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)
The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Duma Energy Corp. (DUMA). Today, Duma Energy Corp. closed trading at $1.54, up 1.32%, on 1,100 volume with 2 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 7,532, 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.

Located in Hebei Province, where most of China’s steel is produced, Longhai Steel has captured a great deal of attention and considerable market presence for its ability to fulfill orders in rapid succession within a highly competitive price structure and at a better quality than other suppliers in the People’s Republic of China, or PRC.
Subsequent to a facility expansion, Longhai Steel increased its yearly production by 67 percent in the fourth quarter of 2011, going from 900,000 to 1.5 million metric tons of high quality steel wire, in diameters from 5.5 millimeters to 18 millimeters, with production taking place on technologically superior equipment.
This high-quality metal lends itself to being made into carbon structure steel, cold heading steel (cold pressing discrete configurations from a steel blank or slug), welding rod, and steel stranded wire as used in steel belted radial tires, suspension bridges, and engineered springs used in automotive or industrial-type machines. Longhai Steel also offers its products to third-party processors who turn out such useful things as nails, the wire mesh used in reinforced concrete, hardware cloth, and the linked mesh that makes up chain link fencing.
The company recently capitalized on its superb reputation for exceeding PRC quality standards in the 6.5mm to 10mm wire metric, so widely used in the construction industry, via an additional production facility in Xingtai. This ultra-modern, high-speed plant not only has increased capacity, but has a longer production line equipped with advanced heating and cooling systems that result in a more durable and reliable product. In addition, this new facility is geared to roll out the kind of higher margin, 5.5mm to 18mm steel wire needed for specialized products.
Thanks to increased production and higher quality processes, Longhai Steel looks to secure an increasing slice of the regional stranded steel wire marketplace as increasing demand – sparked by local infrastructure upgrades and improvements – spurs development of the tier 3-6 city construction initiative which offers a firm foundation for growth.
Longhai Steel’s production improvements and expanded capacity offer the company an opportunity to effect a consolidation strategy which, aligned with PRC policy initiatives, promises to bring together an industry which has grown up piecemeal. The consolidation, in turn, is an opportunity for Longhai Steel to vertically integrate its business in a fusion of strategic acquisitions that has (and will) prove valuable for LGHS shareholders.
These policies, which anticipate China’s emergence as a major player in the global steel marketplace (with an increase in steel production of four percent even as the rest of the world shows declines of 1.2 percent), are available to Longhai Steel through corporate practices which favor long-term customer relationships, superior quality, rapid turnaround, reliable delivery, and customer support – all driven by economies of scale and acquisition opportunities which will reduce obsolete production capacity, promote cost reduction strategies and increase energy efficiency in an industry which has been seriously fragmented by rapid buildout.
Even though China is experiencing some of the slowdown occupying Western construction markets, it continues to roll out infrastructure at a fever pace, driving a remarkable 45 percent of global steel production and 46 percent of global steel consumption in 2011. Hebei Province, the steel capital of China’s northeast, in 2011 accounted for 20 percent of total nationwide steel output.
An overview of market opportunities in China show the government instituting policies designed to divide 60 percent of domestic steel capacity among the top 10 producers by 2015, as opposed to a mere 44 percent in 2009.
This intense consolidation is one metric in those economies of scale that promises to leverage the inherent value of China’s huge stimulus package, which offers $586 billion to create significant steel demand via increased construction in housing, roads, highways, dams, irrigation projects, airports, and other infrastructure buildouts.
Longhai Steel’s new 200,000 square-meter location, which includes everything from production lines and warehousing to company office space, make it even easier for the company to provide rapid turnaround and delivery on orders across a wider product mix.

With today’s talk about the potential of the electric car, and the development of advanced battery technology, it’s easy to forget that the biggest green impact in the world of automotive batteries is the recycling of old-technology lead-acid batteries. As the name suggests, traditional batteries are full of lead and acid, both of which are deadly to the environment, making the recycling of car batteries a critical part of the environmental movement. Considering the roughly 100 million batteries replaced annually in the U.S., the importance of battery recycling is clear. In fact, according to the EPA, such batteries are the single most recycled product in the world.
USA Recycling Industries, a Pennsylvania based national recycling company, is focused on the automotive aftermarket services industry, making the recycling of car batteries a top priority. The company acts as a critical link between automotive service centers and destination recyclers. The company provides collection of used batteries and transportation to an approved battery production manufacturer for recycling purposes. Batteries are collected, purchase by the unit or pound, then sold to battery manufacturers who use the recycled materials to produce new auto batteries. As a result, they don’t end up in landfills, which fits the company’s mission statement of ensuring that America’s landfills remain debris-free of its collected materials.
It doesn’t stop there. USA Recycling collects used tires, motor oil and oil filters, lubricants, and all types of automotive related scrap metal, playing an increasingly important role in the nation’s overall automotive recycling industry. Through a series or partnerships, the company serves automotive aftermarket centers across the country, economically capturing materials that would otherwise end up in landfills, oceans, or the atmosphere, while providing investors a way of profiting from the expanding international green movement.

Nova Mining, the lithium-focused mineral developer with a global resource footprint via its interests in Canada, Guyana, and Mongolia, has been strategically positioning ahead of the upcoming iPhone5 and iPad Mini launches (slated for early September) by Apple and reported on these developments today, pointing out to investors and shareholders alike that the company stands to benefit mightily off their strong supply capability, as well as the quality rail infrastructure from Mongolia straight into China’s major electronics manufacturing hubs.
The upcoming Apple product roll out, in conjunction with the stronger market position won via the recent $1B patent case victory over Samsung, is expected to generate a massive demand surge in lithium. With some $12B in lithium currently under contract via its interests in Mongolia, this places NVMN in a prime position to capitalize off the spike in demand for lithium (the key ingredient in long-life batteries in all smartphones).
Given the attribution to Apple’s last iPad release of the massive bottleneck in lithium, the upcoming release should not only give Apple an even larger corner on the smartphone market, but also grant NVMN a swelling consumption matrix just south of their choicest lithium interests. This is precisely the kind of high-demand strategic mineral play the company was formed to take advantage of. With additional end markets that reach out across other smartphone products, like Google’s new Nexus 7 tablet, as well as into the rapidly developing electric vehicle space through products like Tesla Motor’s upcoming performance/sport vehicles, NVMN is set up to deliver the goods needed to keep Li-ion battery-hungry manufacturers rolling.
In fact, NVMN has already negotiated three, key lithium supply deals to deliver the critical metal to battery manufacturers in Shenzhen. As China continues to dominate global production of smartphones and the requisite components, NVMN’s Mongolian lithium interests will develop into a real cash cow, with no slowdown in demand on the foreseeable horizon.
President of NVMN, James Dilger, spoke confidently about the company’s strategic move to become a major supplier to Shenzhen and China’s other top manufacturing hubs, emphasizing the significant benefit the high-quality rail will be in capturing large portions of the overall market. Dilger assured shareholders that the company was making every move possible to get situated logistically for becoming a key lithium supplier, well in advance of peak demand and peak prices.
It is indeed a seller’s market, as the need for long-life batteries that go in all portable electronics like laptops, smartphones, and tablet computers steadily grows. In a market for lithium that is projected as quadrupling by 2020 to some $43B (recent MarketResearch.com report), NVMN is one company that is geographically well-positioned in the rapidly emerging Mongolian mineral sector, just north of the largest consumer on earth. The company’s licenses are all in southern Mongolia as well (Bayankhongor, Dornogobi, and Dundgobi) and with licensing obtained for plenty of time to develop the interests, investors are taking a good long look at NVMN as a way to play the Apple deal long-term.
It’s a perfect storm of underlying influences that should translate into some serious returns for NVMN shareholders, as the company takes full advantage of the burgeoning seller’s market while pursuing its other interests in underdeveloped Guyana, as well as the company’s Bittern Lake Project up in Saskatchewan, Canada.
