The QualityStocks Daily

Mirasol Resources Ltd. (MRZ.V)

We are highlighting Mirasol Resources Ltd. (MRZ.V) today, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter. 

Mirasol Resources Ltd. is a junior resource company that trades on the TSX Venture Exchange. The Company focuses on new precious metals exploration, discovery, and development in the Americas. They hold a large portfolio of wholly-owned precious metals prospects in the Patagonia region of Southern Argentina, and a strategic copper-gold property presence in northern Chile. Founded in 2003, Mirasol Resources Ltd. has their headquarters in Vancouver, British Columbia. 

Mirasol has identified a number of new precious metals systems through prospect generation, use of leading-edge technology, and the Company's top level technical talent. The Company maintains aggressive exploration programs focused on new precious metals discoveries and adding value to the project pipeline. Mirasol is led by an internationally recognized management team with an exceptional track record of mineral discovery in South America. 

The flagship Joaquin silver project, which Coeur d'Alene Mines is joint venturing into, contains potential for both high grade silver-gold structures and bulk tonnage material. It is undergoing active exploration. In late 2009, Company geologists discovered the Virginia zone. This is a cluster of high grade silver veins that warrants significant follow up to assess the potential for economic mineralization. 

The Joaquin silver-gold property is located in central Santa Cruz Province, Argentina, 80 kilometers north of the Martha silver mine operated by Coeur d’Alene Mines Corporation and the Manantial Espejo silver-gold mine by Pan American Silver Corporation. Exploration at Joaquin is currently focusing on the La Morocha and La Negra prospects where three rounds of drilling (November 2007- November 2009) have returned significant combinations of silver grades and intercept widths. A fourth round of drilling commenced at La Morocha and La Negra in February 2010. 

Mirasol also has their Virginia-Santa Rita Project. Santa Rita is a 100 percent Mirasol owned, silver-gold property located in western Santa Cruz Province, Argentina. It is 100 kilometers southwest of the town of Las Heras and 100 kilometers southeast of the Perito Moreno town site. 

Mirasol staked the property package in 2004. It was subsequently expanded. The Virginia Vein Zone was discovered in late 2009 by a Mirasol geologist while following up alteration and structural targets in newly acquired claims at Mirasol's 100 percent owned Santa Rita Project. 

The Company’s prospecting program in late 2009 targeted parts of the property that had never been explored. The Julia Vein was discovered in November 2009 and additional new veins in December 2009, and the name “Virginia Vein Zone” was given to describe the newly discovered area with multiple silver-bearing veins. 

In November, Mirasol Resources Ltd. announced that Phase 1 diamond drilling commenced on their 100 percent owned, high-grade Virginia Silver Project located in the prolific epithermal Province of Santa Cruz, Argentina. The first phase 1,500 meter drill program of approximately 25 shallow holes will focus on the 2,200 meter long, high-grade Julia Vein, one of 8 mineralized veins identified to date at Virginia. 

Mirasol's President, Mary Little stated, "Initiation of drilling at the Virginia Silver Project is an important step for Mirasol. The Company is pleased to be testing the Julia Vein within the first year of its discovery in order to validate the high grade silver values returned from systematic channel sampling of this visually impressive vein system."  

Mirasol Resources Ltd. (MRZ.V) closed Thursday’s session at $4.74, up 1.72%, on 120,949 volume.  The 52-week low/high is $1.16/$4.90.

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 $0.015, up 47.06%, on 2,014,181 volume with 58 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 157,161 with a 52-week low/high of $0.013/$0.158. During today's trading session, the stock traded an all-time record number of shares. 

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

Designed for security and loss prevention at high-security venues and checkpoints, IDO Security's products are currently in use at international airports, cruise lines, government agencies and other locations requiring strong security.

The company's detection systems employ state-of-the-art sensors and algorithms to detect weapons and other controlled metal articles. By providing accurate measurements, the MagShoe solutions keep false alarms at minimum - detecting potentially dangerous items while ignoring metal typically found in footwear such as heels, zippers and ornaments. The advanced technology reduces the number of manual inspections required, allowing personnel to focus on the real threat.

President and Director Michael L. Goldberg guides the direction of the company with an extensive business and legal background spanning more than 30 years. Prior to joining IDO Security, Mr. Goldberg spent 17 years as the Chairman, CEO and one-time President of RX Medical Services, a medical company that owned and operated small rural hospitals, clinical laboratories and MRI/CT centers across the US.

Micro Identification Technologies Inc. (MMTC) is focused on becoming a global leader in developing, supporting and marketing rapid systems and processes that detect and identify microbial organisms. For several years the company has been working on the development of a breakthrough, laser-based microbial identification technology. This technology has been designed to be extremely fast and easy to use while not relying on conventional chemical or biological processing, fluorescent tags, gas chromatography or DNA analysis.

The system works by measuring scattered light intensity as individual microbes pass through a laser beam. The intensity pattern of the scattered light is a direct consequence of the size, shape and external and internal optical characteristics of the microbe. By measuring scattered light at specific angles, MIT’s system detects and differentiates objects the size of bacteria, protozoa, yeasts and molds.

The company’s technology offers significant advantages over today’s methods of microbial detection, including lower cost, rapid results, easier use and the ability to test for multiple bacteria in one process. The system is statistically based and includes a unique MIT Microbe Library of pre-measured light scattering identifiers - or fingerprints - derived from the measurements of tens of thousands of individual microbes for each species and subspecies to be detected.

MIT’s technology has the potential to revolutionize the $5 billion rapid microbial test market by annually saving thousands of lives and tens of millions of dollars. Since 1998, the industry has had an annual expansion of 9.2 percent - with growth projections for 30 percent annually. MIT is well positioned with its cutting-edge microbial technology as demand continues to soar as a result of major health, safety and homeland security issues. Disclaimer

Daulton Capital Corp. (DUCP.OB) Minimizes Risk in Volatile Industry

To Daulton Capital Corp., a finance company specializing in gold and other natural resource investments, one of the keys to stability in a notoriously unstable industry is in finding ways to minimize risk. The company has developed a limited risk portfolio of international exploration and mining opportunities, based on the objective of option and joint venture projects with major and junior mining companies through to final production.

The company’s approach to risk limitation rests on the application of a number of principles that Daulton feels must be applied to every project and associated transaction:

• Transparent and ethical management 
• Responsible and community-strengthening business best practices 
• DAULTON’s ability to identify opportunities and their risk-reward potential 
• Managing investment risks in exploration by establishing joint ventures 
• Engagement of industry experts and latest exploration technologies 
• Efficient investor communication practice for building a strong shareholder base, providing continuous access to capital 
• Increasing industry visibility through other resource industry contacts and large institutional investors.

This approach is now being applied to two major projects located in Canada’s Yukon Territory, where findings suggest the best new Canadian gold opportunity in years. The Hunker Project, located in the heart of the famous Klondike Placer Gold District, and the Balarat Project (known by locals as the Battle Project), located in the White Gold District, are Daulton’s current focus. The area has produced some outstanding drill results by junior exploration companies, including a recent report by Underworld Resources showing significant gold mineralization thicknesses, including 3.39 g/t over 104 meters.

TWST provided a brief excerpt of the in depth interview conducted with Michael W. Brennan, Chairman and president of Micro Imaging Technology, Inc. During the interview, Mr. Brennan discussed the outlook for his company for investors.

The excerpt is provided below:

TWST: Briefly, what does the technology do?

Mr. Brennan: It has a capability of identifying any microbe, which includes all bacteria – fungi, spores, mold and anything that’s in the microbe range. The bacteria family is the largest family of living organisms in the world. Some are good and some are very bad. We have proven through two world-renowned independent testing laboratories that we have that capability, and we’ve been certified by the only certifying body in the world, AOAC, that these tests are almost instantaneous and at an unbelievably low cost per test. When I say almost instantly, we’ve proven that we can do a bacteria test within five minutes of getting a sample, and it’s somewhere in the order of only $0.10 a cost per test.

So those are the quantitative components that we’re bring to the market. And we absolutely believe that our technology can save thousands of lives and multimillion dollars in health care costs by identifying pathogenic bacteria within our target market, food safety and health protection. Every time you pick up the paper, you see about the beef, lettuce, pepper, peanut and all other food product recalls. All of those things are contaminated by basically three bacteria: E. coli, salmonella and listeria. That’s 90%-plus of all the pathogens, and food safety is our immediate focus. As I mentioned, we are certified for listeria and in the process of getting E. coli and salmonella done probably by early next year.

We had a very good Webinar presentation recently. The whole point was to show how simple it is to use the system. You take a sample of your unknown, the bacteria suspected, all identification processes start similarly – although, most take days and costs hundreds of dollars. With ours, you take a sample of what your suspected pathogen is, put it in a little testing vial with clean water, put it in our system, hit a button on the PC console, it says “identified.” Within much less than five minutes, it will tell you the identification of the bacteria you’re looking for, or if it’s none of those, it will tell you “none”. It’s really that simple. We took everybody from start to finish yesterday in this Webinar in probably 15 minutes, and it takes us less than half a day to train a lab technician to be able to fully use and understand our system.

So where do we stand right now? It was a long process, because we have the hardware, which is elegant and is being manufactured for us by a world-class manufacturing organization. We have software that we developed in conjunction with California Institute of Technology, Caltech. Then we have laboratory procedures, and then we have the certification of the outside labs. For a small company, those are really ambitious projects or programs. Where we’re at right now is at the final stages of getting the product built by a world-class manufacturer company, a company called OSI Systems (OSIS). From a hardware point of view, the systems are really simple. But the whole concept, we think, is revolutionary.

It is a huge marketplace and rapidly growing. The number of food products that had been recalled just in the past year is amazing. There is another submarket that the people aren’t even aware of, and that’s food products for animals. The important part is our government. Although it’s talked a lot about doing some regulation, when it comes to food products, there is no real, true regulation. There was a big article last week about Texas closing down a food processing plant in San Antonio that was responsible for putting out contaminated chopped vegetables that have killed six people over the last few months, and had been traced to that company. But there is no real government regulation that says, “This is what you should do with your product before you put it out to the public.” 

If you add all that together, we are really seriously talking about a worldwide marketplace that is $8 billion to $10 billion just for testing annually. At the moment we have very few systems installed, a system with U.S. Department of Agriculture, USDA, at the Japanese Ministry of Food Safety, several systems in Malaysia for their food safety people and in some independent laboratories, where food processors send their product for testing.

National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV.PK) to Settle Outstanding Debt

Today before the opening bell, National Automation Services, Inc. announced that it is in the process of settling outstanding debt with its creditor(s). In progress for some time, this initiative is anticipated to positively impact the company’s bottom line and nearly obliterate all debt on the company’s balance sheet in the applicable fiscal period.

This move will also allow National Automation to move forward steadfastly as it executes a strategic acquisition strategy. As mentioned in prior press releases, the company plans to acquire targeted automation firms throughout the U.S. in the first quarter of 2011 with the goal of capitalizing on the synergies and efficiencies possible by consolidating a portion of the highly fragmented automation industry.

Mainland Resources (MNLU.OB) on Track and on Time with Haynesville Shale Drilling

Mainland Resources Inc. is an oil and gas exploration company focused on acquiring and developing leases in emerging gas regions, with a primary focus on the Haynesville Shale in Mississippi.

The company today announced it has penetrated the top of the target Haynesville Shale at a depth of 19,980 feet at its Burkley-Phillips #1 well on the Buena Vista prospect, which was developed to explore this largely unexplored section of the Haynesville Shale.

As of today, Mainland is drilling ahead at 20,078 feet on its vertical well and the company said it remains on track to reach the programmed depth of 22,000 feet. Upon meeting this goal, the company will log and evaluate the shale selection with Schlumberger and industry leading technology to confirm reservoir parameters. The evaluation is also hoped to confirm the company’s contention that an extensive natural fracture system exists within the Haynesville Shale.

Recognizing the well’s full potential will allow the company to better estimate its production rates.

“Mainland is now drilling into the primary target interval of the Haynesville Shale. Our exploration concept is that the Buena Vista structure has the potential for a significant accumulation of gas, and based on our past experience in the Haynesville Shale, this prospect could result in multiples of reserves and value when compared to our successful De Soto Parish development. The analysis of the data currently being captured from this well will enable us to more accurately define potential gas reserves and production rates,” Nick Atencio, Mainland CEO stated in the press release.

To date, Mainland has spent $7.6 million drilling the well in a “timely and cost efficient manner.”
