(MNLU) Wall Street Grand, Lebed.biz, Stock Research Newsletter, Another Winning Trade, Market FN, Investment House, Investment Guide, The Best Newsletters, Street Insider, SmallCap Voice, Invest Source and Bloomfield Investment Club reported as well, and we highlight the Company as "One to Watch", here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Mainland Resources Inc. is an energy company engaged in the exploration and production of oil and gas resources. The Company is focusing on the continued development of their producing assets in the Haynesville Shale and the acquisition and development of leases in emerging oil and gas regions with the potential for significant discoveries. Founded in 2008, Mainland Resources Inc. trades on the OTC Bulletin Board and they have their headquarters in Houston, Texas.

Mainland Resources, Inc. launched exploration in the Haynesville shale play with joint-venture partner and operator, Petrohawk Energy. Mainland Resources, Inc. and Petrohawk Energy drilled a discovery well that came on line in January 2009 at 23.3 Mmcfe per day; with an estimated reserve of 7 to 15 Bcf. Mainland can drill up to 25 Haynesville wells on their DeSoto parish leases.

Earlier this month, Mainland Resources reported that they sold a 40 percent working interest in the Haynesville Shale. This includes all of the rights 100 feet below the stratigraphic equivalent of the base of the Cotton Valley formation in the East Holly field, DeSoto Parish, Louisiana. This represents a 40 percent working interest in 2,903.07 gross acres or 1,162.3 net acres and includes all of the Haynesville shale interest of the Company in Louisiana. This sale does not affect any rights on the DeSoto Parish lease lands tied to formations outside the described zone.

Mainland retains all rights in 2,745.65 net acres as to all formations above the base of the Cotton Valley formation. This includes the Cotton Valley and Hosston zones, which have an estimated 65 net potential drilling locations. The Company plans to drill three wells as operator this year in the Hosston/Cotton Valley formations on their DeSoto Parish leases. In addition, they plan to drill an initial well on their Buena Vista project in Mississippi in the Haynesville Shale formation in Q3 2010.

Last week, American Exploration Corporation and Mainland Resources, Inc. announced that their respective Boards of Directors approved a stock-for-stock merger to be effected under the laws of Nevada. The companies signed a definitive Merger Agreement and Plan of Merger. If the merger completes, Mainland Resources, Inc. will be the surviving corporation. They will become vested with all of American Exploration’s assets and property. American Exploration’s stockholders will receive one share of Mainland common stock for every four shares of American Exploration common stock they own, under the terms of the Merger Agreement.

On March 25, 2010, Mainland Resources, Inc. reported that the Company issued an AFE (Authority for Expenditure) for the Burkley-Phillips No. 1 well to undergo drilling in Jefferson County, Mississippi. Mainland, as the operator, intends to drill the Burkley-Phillips No. 1 well to the Haynesville Shale Formation on the Buena Vista project in Jefferson County. The expectation is that the well will undergo drilling to a total depth of 22,000 feet or a depth sufficient to evaluate the Haynesville Shale Formation.

Liberty Energy Corp. (LBYE)

Today we choose to highlight Liberty Energy Corp. (LBYE), here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Liberty Energy Corp. is an independent oil and gas exploration company. Trading on the OTC Bulletin Board, their dedication is to the sourcing and production of fuel supplies in the United States and Europe. The Company has signed agreements to acquire leases and royalties in Texas and Bulgaria. Liberty Energy Corp. has their headquarters in Houston, Texas.

On October 1 2009, Liberty Energy entered into a Lease Purchase and Sale agreement to acquire four oil and gas leases in Texas. These four leases have undergone identification as rich oil and gas sites based around numerous geological pay zones. These leases are Dahlstrom, Ratliff, and two at Lockhart Northeast.

The Dahlstrom lease is a single well property. It provides a sustainable quantity of natural gas, as well as holding the Master Meter, tying surrounding wells to the Company's lease and giving potential future revenue from any additional wells drilled or re-entered in the surrounding area. There is also potential for the site to undergo re-entering for workover operations with a view to increasing production.

The Ratliff lease currently houses four wells. They are ready for re-development. The expectation is that three of these will be viable for oil and gas, with the fourth also permitted to be a saltwater disposal facility.

In North-West Bulgaria, Liberty has acquired royalty rights to natural gas wells on the A-Lovech exploration block. This is an area of high quality, low-sulphur natural gas condensate. The primary well, Deventci-R1, sits on a 15-20 sq. km. geological feature known as the West Koynare structure, reaching a total depth of 5,888 meters (19,313 ft.) into the Lower Triassic Alexandrovo formation. It has bottom-hole pressure of approximately 11,500psi. This is the highest pressured gas reservoir to undergo identification in Bulgaria.

Today, Liberty Energy Corp. introduced their highly experienced management team entrusted with the task of implementing the Company's future exploration, development and production plans. The new management team consists of Ian A. Spowart as President and Chief Executive Officer and Dan Martinez-Atkinson as Chief Financial Officer of the Company.

CitySide Tickets, Inc. (CIST) Strategically Building a Nationwide Enterprise

CitySide Tickets, a new and rapidly growing member of the ticket resale industry, is unique in its relationship to the marketplace, which has made it an unusual ground floor opportunity for investors.
Perhaps it all goes back to the way it got started. CitySide wasn’t put together by a bunch of boardroom number crunchers, a way to prop up one side of a balance sheet. Like so many great startups, CitySide was started by a young forward thinking unshackled visionary who saw and filled a grass-roots need.

Michael DeAmicis, now the company’s CEO, started out as a teenager selling extra tickets to Boston Red Sox games right outside of Fenway Park. He realized that there was a vast opportunity in ticket resales that would never be met on the sidewalks. He started putting together a business strategy and began operating out of his home. As his approach eventually became CitySide Tickets, he upgraded to a storefront, mere steps away from where he used to sell tickets on the streets by Fenway. It became clear that one of the cornerstones of the company’s success was this storefront location, which is still responsible for generating roughly half of CitySide’s business through simple walk-up traffic.

But CitySide soon began to look beyond its modest beginnings and the local Boston baseball market. CitySide rapidly became a New England resource for major concert events, as well as a growing range of sporting events. Today the company offers Bon Jovi, Elton John & Billy Joel, and Mariah Carey, right alongside Major League Baseball, NBA Basketball, NFL Football, NHL Hockey, National Finals Rodeo, NASCAR Racing, and even Ultimate Fighting Championship events and Monster Jam.

As the company went electronic through CitySideTickets.com, they grabbed market share by adding a feature where visitors can sell their own tickets, as well as buy tickets. The company is now gaining momentum around the country by pursuing the acquisition of smaller ticket sellers, such as the recent letter of intent signed to acquire StadiumSeats.com which CitySide hopes to groom into a competitor to current industry giant StubHub.

But another factor that has worked in the company’s favor is the fact that it is publicly traded, allowing it to absorb slumps in the economy better than many. In addition, when CitySide acquires a smaller operation, it can offset purchase costs through the offering of CitySide stock, allowing it to use its capital to continue building high value ticket inventory and attracting traffic.

It all represents a combination of ingredients that bodes well for CitySide as it continues to build from the East Coast to a national presence.

The company is scheduled to move ahead with clinical manufacturing and toxicology studies for this cancer therapy.
TapImmune is also developing a TAP-based prophylactic vaccine which possibly may increase the efficacy of prophylactic vaccines against many pandemic infectious diseases by up to 1000 times. While the company’s current focus is on the use of TAP in vaccines, it is also focusing a significant effort on other disease modalities that can potentially benefit from the TAP platform.

The company recently provided a corporate update to their shareholders. The years of 2008 and 2009 were difficult for many companies, but TapImmune seems to have emerged stronger – raising $1 million in the capital markets – and better positioned to move forward.

TapImmune’s management stated that 2009 was a transformational year for the company. In the last quarter of 2009, TapImmune cemented its relationship with Netherlands-based Crucell (NASDAQ: CRXL). Crucell is a global biopharmaceutical company focused on research and development, production and marketing of vaccines, proteins and antibodies that prevent and/or treat infectious diseases. Global drug giant Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) owns 18 percent of Crucell.

The outbreak of pandemic diseases such as swine flu (H1N1) in 2009 and the constant threat of cancer has brought to the forefront the need for vaccines to both ameliorate as well as hopefully eliminate these diseases. Interest in the immunotherapy field was also stimulated last year by the development of Provenge for prostate cancer by Dendreon (NASDAQ: DNDN).

Over the last two years, TapImmune has been working diligently on finding suitable partners to form collaborative arrangements that will be mutually beneficial. One such arrangement announced on February 1, 2010 is with the Aeras Global TB Foundation. Aeras is one of the foremost non-profit organizations developing new approaches for tuberculosis (TB) vaccines. According to the World Health Organization, in 2007 there were 13.7 million active cases of tuberculosis, 9.3 million new cases and 1.8 million deaths from TB.

TapImmune and Aeras signed a letter of intent for research and development collaboration with an overall goal to evaluate the efficacy of TAP in concert with novel TB vaccine candidates. The company is expected to announce more such important partnerships in the future.

Spicy Pickle Franchising, Inc. (SPKL) Expands in Houston, Texas

Spicy Pickle Franchising, Inc., based in Denver, CO, announced today that they have expanded and opened a second “Spicy Pickle” restaurant in Houston, TX. This new restaurant has a prime location next to the home of the NFL’s Houston Texans, Reliant Stadium. The restaurant is on the retail level of a 300-unit apartment complex and right down the street from the Texas Medical Center, which has over 100,000 patients daily and employees 50,000 people, further solidifying the restaurant’s exposure.

The Spicy Pickle CEO, Marc Geman, regarding the location was quoted as saying: “This location is in the middle of our target demographic serving both the daytime residential and entertainment complexes frequented by our typical customer. It will also serve beer and wine to accommodate an early evening and dinner business. The restaurant will keep extended hours to accommodate its customers. We believe that this will be a very busy location.”
