The Yinping Mine is already in operation, and currently has milling capacity of 50 tons of ore per day.

The expectation is that the milling plant expansion will complete by June 2010. The Company is currently considering the possibility of increasing the milling plant capacity to 300 tons per day. The Yinping Mine has tin grade of over 1 percent. This is well above the global average grade of 0.45 percent.

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (KBLB) a biotechnology company, has their focus on developing high performance polymers and technical fibers. The company is utilizing their proprietary genetic engineering technology to develop and produce polymers and protein-based materials, including Spider silk, which may have numerous commercial and consumer applications.

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (KBLB) is working with university scientists and laboratories to create these new polymers that have potentially broad applications in the multi-billion dollar marketplace for high performance polymers. The company sponsors and collaborates on research projects within university genetic engineering laboratories as a means of utilizing the greatest minds in their field.

Spider Silk is one of the strongest fibers produced in nature. The spider's repelling silk is of particular commercial interest since it is both extremely strong and extremely flexible. Although exciting commercial opportunities exist for the natural polymer, there is no known way to produce the fibers in commercial quantity. KraigLabs, in cooperation with two leading universities, has acquired proprietary genetic engineering technology to unlock the mystery.

CEO Kim Thompson leads the company with formal education in the fields of economics and law. With interest in genetic engineering dating back to the 1970s, Mr. Thompson has invented a pending provisional patent application for a number of organic polymers. This patent application has been assigned to benefit Kraig Biocraft and is a central part of the company's efforts in bringing those inventions to the market. Disclaimer

National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV) 

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV). Today National Automation Services, Inc. closed trading at $0.09, which was up 28.57 percent. Their volume today was 41,500 shares.  

National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV) announced that on March 8, 2010, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) notified NAS that the SEC has completed their limited review of, and that the SEC has no further comments at this time on, NAS' Form 10 Registration Statement, which became effective on October 6, 2009.

National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV) is a public holding company focused on designing, engineering, installing and maintaining automated control systems for such business applications as waste water treatment, water treatment, airport security, bottling plants, power plants, metals, mining, breweries, food processing, tire making, textiles, plastics and nearly all production activities.  

Dominant players in the $500 Billion national and international automation controls market include Siemens, Honeywell, Fisher Controls, Johnson Controls and others. In addition to the multi-nationals, it has been estimated that there could be as many as 300 local and regional firms providing automation control services. In general, these companies have an edge on the larger behemoths because they can better respond to the needs of local business and municipalities.  

Unfortunately, for these smaller companies, they compete in a limited market space, have stunted growth prospects and have no way of monetizing their asset value. NAS aims to capitalize on this condition by acquiring and integrating the strongest local and regional players into a new organization that would allow for the synergies and efficiencies of a national company while keeping the competitive advantages of decentralized management and service.  

Of the 300 local and regional automation companies, 42 meet the company’s acquisition criteria; 11 of which have been targeted for acquisition over the next two years. NAS projects year-end 2010 revenues of more than $47 Million and year-end 2011 revenues of over $140 Million predicated on meeting its targeted acquisition schedule. With a solid business plan in place, NAS has a firm foundation to generate strong cash flow and increase shareholder value over the long-term. Disclaimer

President and CEO of SMEV, Dr. Ella Frenkel, alongside co-founder Dr. Ilya Spivak, have together used their advanced knowledge of human physiology and biomechanics – delivered as an on-the-go, express, full-spectrum relaxation device – to serve the growing demands of our fast-paced, industrially advanced civilization via an esthetically pleasing and tranquilizing automated system.

Such systems, it was noted by the two doctors, can quickly become a vital necessity to the individual, helping to soothe and nurture their life’s work and empowering them to become more successful.

And so, teaming with a group of engineers previously designing systems for world-class automaker Mercedes-Benz, the idea of an efficient, self-contained and full spectrum approach to on-demand relaxation was born in the year 2000, with the introduction of the computer automated, capsule-shaped relaxation station the Company calls the SpaCapsule®.
Reaching a status of worldwide market presence, and the capacity for full production in only 2 years after construction of the initial prototype, SMEV achieved patents in 2002 (successfully defended in 2004) and in 2005 – the same year in which the Company doubled the manufacturer’s warranty to two years and designed the SpaCapsule® Anywhere™ product, a 110-volt version targeted at home and offices.

Constant R&D by this team of technology-focused engineers, who can only be described as driven, is leading to constant innovation in the product line and in the way that Simulated Environment skillfully markets itself on the global stage. Keep the company on your radar as it continues to push forward with strategic marketing and rapid growth strategies.

WikiLoan, Inc. (WKLI) to Tap Underserved Banking Customers with New Card

WikiLoan, Inc. – the bold pioneer in a growing world of peer-to-peer lending whose social media-based lending portal, WikiLoan.com, is fast becoming a familiar hangout to family and friends seeking a low-cost yet structured means to lend money amongst each other – announced a major new strategic push today to serve the unbanked and underbanked.
With over 28 million potential customers in the US alone, this is a gold-mine market segment which has proven historically difficult to court. In spite of that, WikiLoan – with its innovative financial services model – is seeing penetration into this group.

The “Wiki” branded cards could be on shelves at over 20k locations by April 1, and with up to 5 million estimated cards distributed everywhere throughout the US, the “Wiki” brand should receive a great deal of attention while the Company stands to generate additional capital.
This strategy has the beneficial secondary advantage of channeling traffic to the WikiLoan.com site, where generally underserved banking customers can find lending services in a comfortable, easy to use and fun environment where the user has all the tools at his or her disposal, making otherwise wary consumers feel right at home and in-charge.
Founder and President of WKLI, Edward DeFeudis, speaking of the unique aspects of the new deal offered as part of a bold new strategy to acquire this much sought-after customer segment, noted the “shotgun” distribution pattern employed and the specific emphasis on immigrant communities and shops run by local merchants, who often serve as a confidant to customers.

DeFeudis noted that, within such neighborhoods, these store owners often act as a stand-in for financial services providers, “directly educating customers about various products and services”, and DeFeudis acknowledged the Company’s expressed intent to capitalize on these existing relationships.

By addressing the highly specialized needs of individual customers via the card solution, which can be applied in a multiplicity of ways, the Company seeks to bridge the cultural gap. Additionally, by leaning into the distribution methodology, the Company is sure to seed the “Wiki” brand throughout a thriving marketplace.

Founder and CEO of WKLI, Marco Garibaldi, called the new product perfectly positioned to fill the needs of this community by giving consumers a “resource for short-term loans with extremely low fees, fast identity verification methods, and the creation of payment histories, which may help build credit”, and emphasized that the Company would continue to focus its efforts on providing technical solutions for people which will eventually influence them to select higher value products.

General Environmental Management, Inc. (GEVI) Using Improved Financials for Transition to Wastewater Treatment and Waste-To-Energy

General Environmental Management Inc. is now pursuing opportunities to build its position in the wastewater treatment and waste-to-energy industries, leveraging the funds it received from the sale of its Western Region Field Service business and its Rancho Cordova Transfer, Storage, and Disposal Facility, to Luntz Acquisition LLC. That sale was approved at a special meeting of stockholders on February 19, and was completed on February 26. It significantly improved GEM’s financial options, and will allow the company to move forward into what it sees as a more profitable market.

The immediate effect of the sale was to reduce GEM’s outstanding obligations to their senior lender by $9.1 million, with the remaining obligation of approximately $1.2 million to be paid down with the realization of various assets and deposits expected over the rest of this year. The senior debt outstanding of $5.6 million related to the mobile treatment business is offset by a note receivable from the buyers of that business. The note will be paid when the mobile treatment buyers refinance their debt, expected later this year. At that point, GEM’s senior lender liability will have been reduced by over $15.9 million.

GEM CEO, Tim Koziol, commented, “This sale was an important part of our transition strategy into the wastewater treatment services and waste-to-energy markets and will allow GEM to build on its recent acquisition of Santa Clara Waste Water Company, a wastewater treatment business. We believe there is a large and growing opportunity in wastewater treatment, both nationally and globally. We plan to use our core competencies to develop the business through professional sales and marketing while standardizing operations for regional, national and global growth.”

GEM President and COO, Bill Mitzel, added, “Our focus in wastewater treatment services and waste to energy will be in areas that are typically overlooked with new and innovative ideas. The two technologies have mostly been treated separately, but we are looking at ways to combine both for a greener approach.”
