Golden Star Resources, Ltd. (GSS)

SmallCap Voice, Tiny Gems, Greenbackers, DrStockPick.com, Momentum Trades, OTC Picks, Today's Financial News, and The Street reported earlier on Golden Star Resources, Ltd. (GSS), and we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Golden Star Resources, Ltd. is a mid-tier gold mining company with two operating mines situated along the prolific Ashanti Gold Belt in Ghana, West Africa. The Company's commitment is to growth through exploration and accretive acquisitions. Golden Star Resources, Ltd. trades on the NYSE Amex. The Company has their corporate headquarters in Littleton, Colorado.

Golden Star holds a 90 percent equity interest in Golden Star (Bogoso/Prestea) Limited and Golden Star (Wassa) Limited, which respectively own the Bogoso/Prestea and Wassa/HBB open-pit gold mines in Ghana. Additionally, Golden Star has an 81 percent interest in the currently inactive Prestea Underground mine in Ghana, as well as gold exploration interests elsewhere in Ghana, in other parts of West Africa, and in Brazil, South America.

Bogoso/Prestea recorded gold sales of 186,054 ounces for 2009, a 9 percent increase over 2008 gold sales at Bogoso/Prestea. Fourth quarter gold sales were 46,679 ounces, representing a 16 percent increase over fourth quarter 2008 sales at Bogoso. The primary driving factor for the increased gold sales was the increased gold recovery rates at the sulfide plant that averaged 70.7 percent in 2009 versus 66.5 percent in 2008.

Gold sales at Wassa were 223,848 ounces during 2009, an increase of 78.5 percent over gold sales in 2008. Quarterly gold sales were 59,807 ounces for the fourth quarter of 2009, an increase of 30.2 percent over the fourth quarter of 2008. One of the most significant aspects of 2009 at Wassa for the Company was the increased grade of ore processed. This was a direct result of the high-grade ore from Benso and Hwini-Butre. The grade increased to 2.76 g/t in 2009 from 1.33 g/t in 2008. Also of significance was the excellent metallurgical recovery rate at Wassa, which increased to 95.3 percent in 2009 from 93.6 percent in 2008.

Today, Golden Star Resources Ltd. announced preliminary mineral resource estimate and pit optimization results from the new discovery at Buesichem (Buesichem South deposit) which the Company reported March 4, 2010. The Buesichem South discovery added approximately 500,000 ounces of gold to the Buesichem resource base. This brings the Buesichem total to 134,000 ounces of Measured and Indicated Mineral Resources and 497,000 ounces of Inferred Mineral Resource.

With further drilling, this will extend the life of the Buesichem pit by several years. The Buesichem South discovery is open ended to the south and drilling is continuing. An additional 62 holes totaling 14,700 meters (m) have undergone drilling on a nominal 50 m X 50 m grid interval, to date.

Mr. Tom Mair, President and CEO, stated, "We are excited about the results of the new Buesichem South discovery. Drill rigs are currently busy drilling at Buesichem South to firm up the mineral resource as well as determine the strike extent to the south. This new discovery yet again demonstrates how focused exploration on an existing mining camp can deliver significant results, and we are continuing this approach along our 85 kilometer strike length of the prolific Ashanti Trend."

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 $0.06, up 7.14%, on 12,204 volume with 4 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 21,349 with a 52-week low/high of $0.04/$0.158.

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

The primary focus of Tombstone Exploration's operations will be to generate revenue from the production of silver, gold and copper as well as additional base minerals such as manganese, lead and zinc. Successful results from these efforts will provide a strong source of income to further expand operations.

eDoorways Corp. recently announced that it has engaged InvestorsVoice, Inc. to assist in its ongoing efforts to communicate with the investment community. InvestorsVoice is a multi-faceted investor relations, communications, and public relations firm based in Houston, Texas.

The agreement calls for InvestorsVoice to provide existing and potential investors the opportunity to learn more about eDoorways, either directly or through investment advisors. Information provided will relate to the company’s management and its strategy, with the immediate goal of developing and producing investor relations material.

The tremendous number of investment related information sources currently available on the Internet, including social networking conversations, allows investors to evaluate opportunities in many new and different ways. At the same time, the sheer volume of outlets has made it more complex for businesses to reach out to investors. InvestorsVoice simplifies these efforts, helping to manage and prioritize investor communication options to better communicate with and engage the investment community.

As part of this, InvestorsVoice is now utilizing eDoorways Powerkey technology, with an InvestorsVoice IR Channel, available at www.edoorways.com/Investors-Voice.

eDoorways CEO, Gary Kimmons, said, “We are very excited about utilizing InvestorsVoice resources to build a strong shareholder value. We will be capitalizing on InvestorsVoice know-how and experience to get the necessary awareness about our company out to our shareholders and investment community.”

InvestorsVoice Sr. VP, Robert Adams, added, “The objective of our Investor Relations service is to create shareholders by helping businesses improve their companies’ findability, versus traditional approaches to marketing — which merely solicit investors through interrupt-based outreach efforts. The InvestorsVoice IR approach helps companies shift from telling investors what they need, to helping them find what they want.”

CenterPointe Community Bank (CENP) 2Q Report Reveals Solid Profitability

CenterPointe Community Bank, www.centerpointebank.com – the Hood River-headquartered, State of Oregon-chartered and FDIC-insured community bank with an ancillary branch (also in Oregon at The Dalles), is in the black for the first time since its inception three years ago, reporting $36k in earnings with the release of 2Q (ending June 30) data yesterday.

The Bank enjoys the benefits of being the only community bank in the Columbia River Gorge region, opening its two offices in 07 and 08 respectively, and subsequently blossoming into one of the strongest business lenders in the area, with highly responsive lending staff always ready to meet the needs of local businesses, Ag producers and owner-occupied commercial real estate transactions.

Some leading data points from the 2Q report show strong growth with solid fundamentals:
• Total Assets up 14.1% (from Dec. 31, 09) to $69.1M – up 69% over the 12-month ending June 30, 2010
• Gross Loans up 35.1% (from Dec. 31, 09) to $54.8M – up 88% over the 12-month
• Total Deposits up 14.6% (from Dec. 31, 09) to $62.8M – up 82% over the 12-month

Executive VP and CFO of CENP, Jim Fortner, noted the Bank’s steady growth since inception, and how it hit the break-even level of loan and deposit volume in 1Q FY10, citing further the improving net interest margin which for year-to-date was an annualized 4.96%, and for 2Q was 5.18%, reflecting increasing profitability.

This is a very solid indicator of overall profitability, especially when one looks at other banks. CENP is well-capitalized under regulatory standards, with no delinquencies or problem credits in the loan portfolio, and has a loan-loss-allowance of 1.16% ($637k) which is sufficient to absorb inherent risks.

Founding Director and Chairman of the Board of CENP, Steve Benton, characterized this new high-water mark in CENP’s success story as a “key milestone”, attributing the capacity to go from start-up to profitability and a stable asset foundation in three years to the supportive and diverse customer base in the Columbia River Gorge region.

Despite having two locations, CENP thinks of itself as a Gorge-area regional bank, according to Benton, and though it is small in size, the integrity and community participation of the management and staff (who are native to the region themselves) has forged a bond between the bank and the people.

President and CEO, Mahlon Vigesaa, who is also a founding Director, was delighted to report that CENP has achieved sustainable break-even operations in less than three years, citing the economic environment as a major hurdle and the support and confidence of the local Gorge community as instrumental to continued success.

Vigesaa noted the strategy of rolling over deposits into localized infrastructure as being vital to the Bank’s prominence as the lender-of-choice for regional business and agriculture.

GreenHouse Holdings, Inc. (GRHU) to Acquire LifeProtection Inc.

GreenHouse Holdings Inc. is a developer of sustainable and eco-friendly energy solutions and infrastructure that can be rapidly deployed. The company announced today the signing of a definitive agreement to purchase Life Protection Inc. in exchange for company shares.

Life Protection provides innovative training, support, design and construction of facilities and services to meet the needs of the US government, military and law enforcement agencies. The acquisition is expected to be accretive to GreenHouse Holding’s 2010 earnings and will provide the company with an estimated revenue contribution in excess of $2 million for 2010. Life Protection is currently generating gross margins of 37 to 38 percent and pretax margins of 15 to 16 percent.

One of the key features of the acquisition is that it will immediately establish GreenHouse Holdings as a leading supplier of Rapidly Assembled Portable Structures (RAPS), which the United States Marine Corps and United States Navy EOD (Explosive Ordinance Disposal) have selected for their shelter/unit training requirements.

The agreement is also expected to yield significant cross selling/cross marketing opportunities for the newly combined company. The addition of GreenHouse’s water desalination, sanitation, food production, renewable energy and fuel production products fit seamlessly into Life Protection’s existing portfolio to sell to the United States government, providing the military with a one-stop shop for their training needs.

Pacific Blue Energy Corp. (PBEC) Secures 100 Acres in Arizona for 150MW Solar Farm

Pacific Blue Energy Corp., a development stage renewable energy company, has inked an agreement to acquire 100 acres in Gila Bend, Ariz., as part of its larger plan to develop a new 150 megawatt solar farm. Additionally, the company is in discussions to purchase an additional 707 acres adjacent to the announced 100 acres.

In May the company announced a 20 megawatt Sunshine Solar Farm solar electric project currently in development with Siliken Renewable Energy on 154.3 acres Pacific Blue owns near Flagstaff, Ariz. The Gila Bend property was chosen for its close proximity to the Sunshine Solar Farm and to an electrical substation and 69 KB transmission line, as well as its exposure to annual sunlight.

“Part of our business plan is to continue to identify and purchase land that can be developed for solar farms,” Joel Franklin, Pacific Blue CEO stated in the press release. “Much like our first purchase near Flagstaff, the property in Gila Bend offers key features that will make it perfect for solar electrical power generation, and we anticipate being able to complete this transaction in short order.”

Blue Pacific expects to benefit from the Obama Administration’s $1.45 billion loan guarantee to the Solana Generating Station solar-power plant in Gila Bend, as well as from the local governments in support of renewable energy in the area, as the Gila Bend town council adopted a zoning ordinance for solar projects to encourage new developments.
The acquisition agreement is subject to closing conditions.
