China Natural Gas, Inc. (CHNG)

Stock Egg, Penny Invest, Cabot Wealth, Hit and Run Candle Sticks, Daily Profit, The Stock Advisors, and Greenbackers reported earlier on    China Natural Gas, Inc. (CHNG), and we highlight the Company today, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

China Natural Gas, Inc. transports and sells natural gas to vehicular fueling terminals, as well as commercial, industrial, and residential customers. The Company does this through their distribution networks in China's Shaanxi and Henan Provinces. They own approximately 120 km of high-pressure pipelines and operate 27 Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fueling stations in Shaanxi Province and 12 CNG fueling stations in Henan Province. China Natural Gas, Inc.'s shares trade on the NASDAQ Global Market. The Company has their headquarters at Hi-Tech Zone, Xian, Shaanxi, China.

Compressed Natural Gas is a fossil fuel substitute for gasoline (petrol), diesel, or propane fuel. Its combustion does produce greenhouse gases. However, it is a more environmentally clean alternative to those fuels, and it is much safer than other fuels in the event of a spill. Natural gas is lighter than air, and disperses quickly when released.

China Natural Gas has four primary business lines. These include the distribution and sale of CNG  through Company-owned CNG fueling stations for hybrid (natural gas/gasoline) powered vehicles, and the installation, distribution, and sale of piped natural gas to residential, commercial, and industrial customers through Company-owned pipelines.

These also include the distribution and sale of gasoline through Company-owned CNG fueling stations for hybrid (natural gas/gasoline) powered vehicles, and the conversion of gasoline-fueled vehicles to hybrid (natural gas/gasoline) powered vehicles through their auto conversion division.

China Natural Gas, Inc. is the sole authorized provider of natural gas to residential customers in certain parts of the Xi'an area, including Lantian County and the Baqiao District. The northern region of Shaanxi Province is the home to China's second largest natural gas reserve. The Company has been consistently profitable since their inception, and they are rapidly expanding their network of compressed natural gas fueling stations to satisfy strong customer demand.

Earlier this month, China Natural Gas, Inc. announced that they signed a natural gas supply agreement on November 25, 2010, with a subsidiary of China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) in Xi'an, China. The new supply agreement between CNPC Changqing Oil Field Branch Company (CNPC Changqing) and Jingbian LNG Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of China Natural Gas, Inc. will provide the Company with a supply of natural gas for their LNG plant in Jingbian County, Shaanxi Province (LNG Project).

The Company expects to complete Phase I of the LNG Project by the end of this year. Under the terms of the agreement, the Company has the option to purchase up to 500,000 cubic meters of natural gas per day, or 150 million cubic meters per year, of natural gas from CNPC Changqing at a purchase price of RMB 1.355 per cubic meter. The agreement is effective through December 31, 2011.

St Andrew Goldfields Ltd. (SAS.TO)

Today we are reporting on St Andrew Goldfields Ltd. (SAS.TO), here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

St Andrew Goldfields Ltd. is a Canadian based gold mining and exploration Company that lists on the Toronto Stock Exchange. The Company has an extensive land package in the Timmins mining district, northeastern Ontario, Canada. This district lies within the world famous Abitibi greenstone belt. St Andrew Goldfields has their corporate headquarters in Toronto, Ontario. The Company was originally incorporated in 1983.

Noah Timmins founded the city of Timmins in 1912 after three gold mines were discovered in the area. Mining of gold and other metals such as silver, zinc, copper, and nickel, is the dominant industry in the area.

The Company began production at their Holloway Mine in October 2009. Their Hislop Mine entered production in Q3, 2010. In the second half of this year, the Company commenced development work at the Holt Mine to bring it into production by the start of 2011.

St Andrew Goldfields Ltd. has a steady cash flow and a strong balance sheet. This allows them to advance exploration activities on the 120 km long package in the Timmins mining district, which straddles the Porcupine-Destor Fault Zone (PDFZ) host to numerous gold deposits and mines in the region.

Using their extensive geological database, the Company targeted exploration at numerous sites. They have focused the 2010-2011 exploration program on areas that lie in close proximity to the existing mines and infrastructure. They are following up on advanced exploration projects to add to the resource and reserve levels. Other targets include areas where limited drilling has returned anomalous gold values that warrant a follow up. Drilling commenced in 2009, and accelerated in the summer of 2010.

This month, St Andrew Goldfields Ltd. advised that repair work to the Holt Mine shaft completed, and normal operations resumed as of December 8, 2010. As announced on November 29, 2010, a significant shaft incident at the Holt Mine caused damage to the shaft structure. As a result, development work was suspended in order to carry out the necessary repairs. The crews completed the shaft repair work and pre-production activities have now recommenced.

Also this month, St Andrew Goldfields Ltd. provided an update on their ongoing exploration programs at the Holloway Mine's Deep Thunder Zone and the Garrison Creek Project. Both of these are located in the eastern portion of the Company's 120km land package.

Drilling at the Deep Thunder Zone continues to validate the geological model and return positive results. This includes most recently 9.22 g/t Au over 4.5 meters, 9.63 g/t Au over 3.2 meters, and 20.04 g/t Au over 2.7 meters.

Limited drilling to date at the Garrison Creek Project has intersected several, sub-parallel zones of gold mineralization over narrow widths, such as 11.20 g/t gold over 1.5 meters, 18.70 g/t gold over 0.53 meters, 10.48 g/t gold over 2.5 meters and 29.10 g/t gold over 1.7 meters. The higher-grade gold values occur within broader, highly prospective zones of lower grade gold mineralization.

St Andrew Goldfields Ltd. (SAS.TO) closed Thursday's trading at $1.50, down 0.66%, on 370,788 volume.  The 52-week low/high is $0.65/$1.51.

Daulton Capital Corp. (DUCP) Sees Itself In The Best Position For The Growing Resource Boom

The stated core goal of Daulton Capital Corp. is to grow shareholder value while limiting investment risk. This investor focus is of special importance in their role as a finance company targeting gold and other natural resource projects. Unlike other companies, who are tied to a specific invention or technology, Daulton is an investment company, able to evaluate ranges of opportunities. As such it can avoid projects that do not meet its own strict financial requirements.

In addition, the company cultivates the kind of operational philosophy that builds investor trust, emphasizing:
• Transparent and ethical management
• Leadership in safety, health, and the environment
• Responsible and community-strengthening business practices
• Engagement of industry experts and best-practice exploration technologies
• Industry visibility through other resource industry contacts and large institutional investors

With this approach, Daulton considers itself in the optimum position to capitalize on the growing worldwide demand for resources, including gold, silver, copper, oil and gas. They point to Peter Schiff, one of the few financial visionaries who accurately predicted the subprime meltdown and ongoing recession. According to Schiff:

“If you really want to grow your wealth, you should own gold in the mining sector. With gold stocks, there’s obviously a lot of leverage to higher gold prices. As millions or billions of people discover gold as a store of value and as a way to escape inflation, there’s going to be tremendous demand and somebody’s going to have to supply that demand. It’s obviously going to have to be mined. So the companies that have gold and mine it are going to see profit margins explode.”

Spartan Gold Ltd. (SPAG) Acquires Prime Gold Exploration Property

Spartan Gold, www.spartangoldltd.com – the US-based gold exploration firm, reported successful execution of an option and mining claim acquisition agreement yesterday on Mexivada Mining Corporation’s Poker Flats property. The agreement allows SPAG, in conjunction with joint venture partner Sphere Resources, Inc., to acquire a 70% interest (equally shared) in Poker Flats.

The Poker Flats is located in Nevada’s prolific Carlin Trend, within the Carlin Mining District of Elko County and consists of some 500 acres (two non-contiguous blocks structured as 25 unpatented lode mining claims).

The NI 43-101 technical data indicates Carlin-type mineralization and with three major mines operating in the vicinity under Newmont, Gold Standard Ventures and Barrick Gold, the similarities in the geophysical/geological analysis has prompted the pursuit of a two-phase exploration program.
Under terms of the agreement SPAG would incur responsibility for financing first stage exploration, while Sphere (Canadian mining resource investment house) is tasked with tackling the subsequent mining feasibility study on the property. Full terms of the agreement will be available in the Form 8K filed by SPAG.

The exploration goal at Poker Flats is to identify a 500k-1M oz Au resource which will enable open-pit operational capabilities.
Due to the close proximity of major mining operations (Railroad-Pinyon) and similar mineralized host rocks as the nearby Rain Mine deposit, SPAG is buzzing with excitement.

Chairman and CEO of SPAG, Malcolm Stevens, underscored the significance of the geographic location of Poker Flats and its physical emulation of the major nearby operations.

President and CEO of Mexivada, Richard Redfern, praised the technical team for their expertise and expressed confidence in SPAG’s exploration capabilities, Sphere’s diligence in overseeing requisite formal studies to validate the prospect and the production potential of Poker Flats itself.

Solarfun Power Holdings Co. Ltd. (SOLF) Signs 5-Year Supply Agreement with Top China Polysilicon Producer

Solarfun Power Holdings Co. Ltd., a vertically integrated manufacturer of silicon ingots, wafers and photovoltaic (PV) cells and modules in China, today announced that it has signed a long-term supplementary wafer and polysilicon product supply contract with GCL-Poly Energy Holdings Limited, which will provide Solarfun with 2,500MW wafer and polysilicon products over the next five years.

Per the agreement between Solarfun and GCL (Suzhou) Solar Energy Technology Company Limited, a subsidiary of GCL-Poly, GCL-Poly will provide Solarfun with the wafer and polysilicon products between January 2011 and December 2015. The deal correlates with both companies’ long-term strategies and is expected to support expansion efforts in response to rising demands. “By signing this long-term supplementary wafer and polysilicon contract with GCL-Poly, we are further strengthening the long-term strategic collaboration between both parties,” Peter Xie, president and CEO of Solarfun stated in the press release. “We expect this to satisfy our requirements for key raw materials on a cost-effective basis, and allow us to continue expanding in scale as we meet our growing customer needs worldwide.”

GCL-Poly is China’s largest polysilicon producer, and one of the world’s leading wafer suppliers. The company noted its optimism in mutual industry advantages with today’s announced agreement. “We are pleased to maintain our close strategic collaboration with Solarfun, one of the world’s leading solar companies. We will provide high quality services to support Solarfun’s rapid development. We look forward to achieving a win-win situation with Solarfun in the global solar industry,” Shu Hua, executive director and executive president of GCL-Poly stated.

Safe Technologies International, Inc. (SFAZ) Selected by Major Asset Recovery Firm CreditorCollections for Cloud-Based Data Backup and Recovery Solution

Safe Technologies International, www.strategicdatasupport.com – the providers of managed IT services ranging from cloud-based data backup and disaster recovery under the SDS (Strategic Data Support) brand to Total Office (full-spectrum/fixed-cost/rapidly deployable) platform solutions, reported selection of the Company’s Data SafeHarbor service by law firm CreditorCollections.

CreditorCollections has implemented the cloud-based Data SafeHarbor backup service as a cost-effective fail-safe mechanism for the firm’s IT environment. President of CreditorCollections, attorney Joel B. Blumberg, characterized the kind of global asset recovery the firm does as being exceptionally demanding in terms of the need for increasingly complex IT framework solutions in order to produce robust/reliable capabilities.

Blumberg cited massive increases in the volume of demand for services as fundamental to the decision to choose SDS’s Data SafeHarbor for ironclad backup, but was blown away by how seamless and tight the integration was and how effortless and problem-free the roll out was. Blumberg went on to praise the tech support and assistance provided by SDS throughout the process, remarking with pleasure at how the office staff was free from concerns about backing up the data, allowing them the freedom to generate laser-focus on core objectives.

The overall improvement to cost, reliability and personnel efficiency cannot be fully quantified, but as President of SDS, Christopher Kolb, put it “data loss is very common”, and as any business knows which has experienced such a loss, the results can be infrastructurally devastating. Kolb underscored the amelioration of burden upon the administrative staff’s requirements to perform data backup routines and explained that the rapid growth of CreditorCollections would really show off Data SafeHarbor’s ease of use and scalability.

CreditorCollections utilizes a wide range of legal methods in the process of asset recovery and one must have some experience with the profession to understand the sheer mass of data that must be meticulously managed, which is why a cloud-based system like SDS’s Data SafeHarbor is such an ideal solution.
