Wolverine Exploration, Inc. (WOLV)
OTCPicks and Willy Wizard reported earlier on Wolverine Exploration, Inc. (WOLV), and we are highlighting the Company as "One to Watch" here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Wolverine Exploration is a junior exploration company with offices in Quesnel and Richmond, British Columbia. Wolverine engages in the acquisition and exploration of base and precious metal mineral properties. Incorporated in 2006, the Company focuses on the exploration of mineral properties in Labrador, Canada. Wolverine's shares trade on the OTCQB.
Wolverine Exploration 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 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. Furthermore, a power line is within easy access and the property has near surface anomalies.
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 Wolverine. 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 a priority 1 target as well.
Earlier this month, Wolverine Exploration announced that mobilization of equipment to the Cache River property for the drilling program was completed on October 10, 2012. The drill program began that day. The initial drilling consists of a minimum of four drill holes and a minimum of 300 meters. These will undergo evaluation for further drilling after Wolverine has received assay results of the initial drilling. Innu-Cartwright Drilling Limited Partnership is conducting the drill program under the supervision of the project geologist Ed Montague, P. Geo.

All Grade Mining's mission is to acquire mining concessions in all phases, all sizes and all minerals.

Currently, the Company owns an iron ore concession in central Chile, III Region - The Salitrosa Property. This property is currently undergoing its environmental impact declaration and feasibility studies allowing All Grade to process greater than 50,000 tons of iron per month. All Grade acquired the Salitrosa iron mine in the Republic of Chile in October of 2011, as the first mining project of the Company.
The Salitrosa mine is 28 kilometers from Chanaral and 60 kilometers from the Caldera port. This property is also within 18 kilometers of a national railway to which it could be connected by short line spur. Salitrosa consists of an updated 741 hectares spanning 24 square kilometers. It has an estimated iron ore reserve of more than 40 million metric tons based on magnometric and geological studies done on the property. The Salitrosa property consists of 23 separate mines.
All Grade Mining began site preparation in the third quarter of 2012. They expect to bring production up to 150,000 Metric Tons per month by mid-2013. The Salitrosa project will involve an open pit mine and a dry magnetic concentration plant for the potential production of iron ore concentrates with an average grade of 63.5 percent.
Recently, All Grade acquired the Jose Del Transito Project. This copper mine is approximately 3 km north southeast of Ovalle. The mine is currently producing up to 1,100 tons of copper monthly. The Company's intention is to submit permits with the Chilean government to double production later this year.

The Westaim Board of Directors determined the amount and timing of the Cash Distribution, taking into account the present and contingent liabilities of Westaim and the Company's future business objectives.

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight GreeneStone Healthcare Corp. (GRST). Today, GreeneStone Healthcare Corp. closed trading at $1.70, up 6.25%, on 6,558 volume with 11 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 16,697, and its 52-week low/high is $0.70/$1.83.
GreeneStone Healthcare Corp. (GRST) is focused on operating medical and healthcare clinics in Ontario, Canada, offering addiction treatment, colonoscopy, endoscopy, minor cosmetic procedures, and executive health assessment programs. The company adds overflow capacity to an increasingly stretched provincial healthcare system, and provides private alternatives to publicly underserviced healthcare needs.
Ontario's public healthcare cost has grown at a compounded 7.1% rate over the past 10 years, now accounting for approximately $77B in government spending compared to $39B in 2000. This cost explosion is similar for the country as a whole, growing at 7.4% over the same period. The need for practical change to the system is immediate as demand continues to rise.
Governments are increasingly looking to private alternatives to address the growing trade-off between costs vs. service in the public healthcare system. Private services are expanding beyond their traditional place as overflow capacity to relieve wait times. GreeneStone Healthcare is particularly well positioned with a first-mover advantage in mental healthcare – a highly underserviced niche.
The company currently offers its various medical services via three medical clinics. Future plans include establishing partnerships for accelerated growth as well as dual-listing on CNSX. With positive revenue growth and cash flow positive status recently achieved, GreeneStone is methodically extending its vertical expertise in the healthcare industry. Disclaimer

A recent Seeking Alpha article, called Obesity In America: An Investor’s Perspective, offers chilling evidence of how America’s changing lifestyles have led directly to the nation’s shocking and dangerous increase in obesity. The rate of obesity for adults has more than doubled in the last 30 years. Labeled America’s obesity death spiral by some, the current and future price to be paid for this growing health epidemic is only now being calculated.
According to the article, obesity increases your chance of developing kidney disease by 83%, with asthma rates increasing by 52%. Rates of type II diabetes have already increased dramatically, and are expected to double over the next 20 years. Obese children end up later suffering from diabetes roughly 1/3 of the time, and obesity has tripled in American children since 1980, a time when, the article points out, the average American took in about 500 fewer calories than today.
Diet, whether good or bad, tends to become a habit that is difficult to break. The article cites a USDA study indicating that fully 94% of school provided lunches failed to meet USDA guidelines with 80% of them including excess fat and saturated fat content. Mandating changes in school lunch programs sounds easy, but schools that have started to provide healthy alternatives often find them going uneaten, with children passing them up for other foods. In some schools they have gone so far as to actually require students who buy lunch there to include at least one healthy item. The result: The kids buy the healthy foods as required and then simply throw them away.
There are other factors. The dominance of computers, television, and other electronic devices that encourage sitting in one place for extended periods has greatly reduced the physical activity of both adults and children. In addition, the production of corn and other calorie-laden food sources has continued to go up as the price has continued to go down, further encouraging to availability of high-calorie items in stores.
The news keeps getting worse, but consumers and companies are beginning to take action. Today the drive to promote the intake of healthier food and drink items has never been stronger. At the very top of this movement is Skinny Nutritional, offering its Skinny Water brand of enhanced waters with none of the artificial and unhealthy ingredients so common in other flavored drinks.

Liberty Energy, the Houston-headquartered oil and gas E&P with a substantial Texas portfolio consisting of over 12 key leases with exceptional coverage on multiple geological pay zones, as well as royalty rights on the A-Lovech exploration block in northwest Bulgaria (an over 1.17M-acre gas property of some choice, low-sulphur condensate), offered markets an update today on the status of the company’s Bulgarian project.
The company’s prime position in the 1,830 square mile A-Lovech exploration block, which also contains the deepest well done in the entire country in the last three decades, known as the Deventci-R1 (19.3k feet into the Lower Triassic Alexandrovo formation, with bottom-hole pressures up to 11.5k psi, the highest pressure of any gas reservoir in the country), represents a strong second support column to LBYE’s Texas assets. With preliminary test output around 250 Mcf per day, Deventci R-1, in-focus since the company acquired these rights in Bulgaria via the 2009 purchase and sales agreement, sits on a gas deposit with a capacity of around 6 billion cubic meters (encountered saturated reservoirs in the Dolni Dabnik – Middle Triassic Doirentsi formation, with potential in the Upper Triassic Rusinovdel and Lower Jurassic Ozirovo).
Exceptionally high-quality gas like this with low sulfur content is a gold mine for LBYE shareholders and the multi-formation target capability of the company’s Bulgarian assets offers compelling long-term vectors. The recent report on neighboring block well, Peshtene R-11, done by operator Transatlantic Petroleum Ltd. (10.5k feet down into the Etropole formation), validates clear parallels to U.S. shale plays and the geological correlation looks unmistakable. Transatlantic ran gross unrisked best estimate figures of 11 Tcfe on the prospective resources in their Etropole position and is merely caught up right now cutting Parliamentary red tape, understandably eager to strike out beyond the Peshtene R-11 exploration well.
Great news for Liberty Energy that really puts a shine on their own position and analytical efforts in A-Lovech, something which makes the company’s strategic European stance (encompassing potential sites elsewhere in Bulgaria, as well as surrounding European countries) all the more impressive. LBYE is clearly demonstrating their aptitude for applying the vast operational experience garnered in Texas to Europe and one might well expect similar traction in other low-risk European opportunities in the future.
CEO of LBYE, Ian Spowart, was overjoyed at the news of the 11 trillion cubic feet of natural gas adjoining the company’s property. Spowart assured shareholders that the company was moving rapidly to engage LBYE’s partners in order to take the project forward as soon as possible.
Taken against a backdrop of the company’s 100% working interests in some 1k plus acres in Texas (Bastrop, Caldwell, and Eastland Counties – targeting the Austin Chalk, Buda, Dale Lime, Edwards, Marble falls, and Mississippian), this kind of potential in Europe makes LBYE look like a considerable value proposition for investors.

On the heels of the Oct. 4 announcement that Baristas Coffee Company received a trademark certificate for the “Baristas TM” brand and related marketing assets, the Seattle-based beverage and branded products company continues to move forward strongly with its growth and marketing efforts.
This month, Baristas announced that a new line of “Barista Coffee Creations” ice cream, featuring classic flavors like “Caramel Cappuccino” and specialty creations like “Coconut Café Latte,” had been finalized for distribution. These ice cream flavors are initially being made available in four-pack boxes, and the company intends to develop additional flavors and varied forms of its “Baristas Coffee Creations” going forward. Other new Baristas branded products are currently under development.
The company has also completed filming for a new series of promos and commercials that are scheduled to begin airing in late November. The commercials highlight the Baristas brand as well as the previously announced “Baristas” reality show, which is currently under development by Mark Mayer at M&M Productions. The commercials will air throughout the nation with an emphasis on regions where Baristas has or will soon be opening locations.
Baristas will additionally open two new San Antonio, Texas, locations in November and December 2012, which will bring the total to three locations in the San Antonio market.
Baristas Coffee Company is headquartered in the Seattle area. The company was formed to create a national brand of drive-thru espresso stands, and the company is accomplishing this by acquiring established businesses that fit its model, opening new locations and franchising. Baristas has differentiated itself from the competition by implementing a theme that features attractive female baristas in entertaining costumes who prepare the finest beverages available on the market. Baristas franchises can currently be found in six greater Seattle locations as well as in Arizona, Texas, Florida, and Montana, with other states coming soon.

Intertainment Media announced it has agreed in principal, and is in the process of finalizing a definitive agreement to have Toronto based Paymobile Inc. (www.paymobile.com) facilitate its financial services processing for Intertainment’s Sweet Card Program (www.thesweetcard.com). The Sweet Card is a customized social media financial services program for celebrities and socially active specialty brands combining mobile wallet technology, pre-paid debit platform and a robust fan centric loyalty program.
According to Aite Group and Mercator Advisory Group, prepaid debit card issuance programs have grown from $1.6 Billion in 2004 to an estimated $120 Billion in 2012, with prepaid loads reaching $57 Billion in the US in 2011.
Earlier this year, MarketResearch.com reported that “The number of mobile payment subscribers worldwide was nearly 2 Billion users in 2011. The total value of the mobile payment market is expected to cross US$500 Billion by 2014. North America and Asia is expected to become the most important markets; together both of them accounting for more than 60% of the total market share and 80% of mobile payment users.”
In a recent Fox Business News article published on October 12, 2012 entitled “Good-bye Plastic, Hello Phone: Mobile Wallets on the Rise” by Marialene LaPonsie, a 2012 survey conducted by the Carlisle & Gallagher Consulting Group resulted in 48% of respondents expressing interest in mobile wallet technology. The Fox business article went on to say that MasterCard Advisors discovered spending increased an average of 30% in the 12 months after an individual first used a contactless payment. For those in the highest spending category, that’s $600 more a month that shifted to contactless payments.
Technology consulting firm Gartner was reported in CNN Money as estimating mobile payments will be a $617 billion market in 2016, compared to $171.5 billion in 2012. In addition to an overall increase in the amount of purchases being made via mobile payments, retailers can also look forward to more spending from consumers using contactless methods.
“Increasing interaction with fans and driving continued revenue is a top priority for leading artists, celebrities and specialty brands,” said David Lucatch, CEO Intertainment Media Inc. “Together with Paymobile, the Sweet Card program provides a unique continuity business opportunity using mobile wallet payment application and customized pre-paid debit cards allowing fans to earn exclusive rewards through mobile wallet usage, virtual payments, online purchases, money transfers and conventional in-store transactions.”
Gino Porco, CEO of Paymobile commented, “We are very pleased that INT has chosen Paymobile as their card issuing and mobile wallet partner. We look forward to supporting the numerous artist card programs INT is currently developing globally.”
The Company now has a number of signed Letters of Intent with key celebrities and specialty brands in North America with a view towards rapid global expansion opportunities. The program is expected to generate ongoing loyalty and transactional fees of which Intertainment and its divisions will be entitled to up to 50% of net generated revenues.
The program will be marketed by Intertainment using its social media brands including Ortsbo and KNCTR along with its social media investment partners and key online sites together with celebrity partner programs and live venues.
