Crosshair Exploration & Mining Corp. (CXZ)

OTC Picks reported recently on Crosshair Exploration & Mining Corp. (CXZ), SmallCap Voice did earlier, and we highlight the Company today, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Trading on the NYSE Amex, Crosshair Exploration & Mining Corp. is a prominent player in the exploration and development of uranium, vanadium and gold in the U.S. and Canada. The Crosshair team consists of knowledgeable and experienced professionals with both exploration and mining backgrounds. Crosshair Exploration & Mining Corp. has their headquarters in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The Company’s flagship projects, Bootheel and Juniper Ridge, are both located in uranium mining friendly Wyoming. Bootheel has exceeded the minimum mining threshold and with its in-situ mining potential, is designed for near term production. Crosshair plans to spend $5 million dollars in Wyoming beginning in Q2 2011 in order to increase and upgrade both resources before the end of the year.

For Juniper Ridge, a Phase 1 Program is set to commence in Q2 2011 and will consist of 100 - 150 holes at an average depth of 300 feet. The program will be followed by the completion of an NI 43-101 resource estimate in Q4 2011. The expected costs, based on similar deposits in the area, include capital costs of $23-28 million (including equipment) and operating costs of $20-25 per pound.

Juniper Ridge contains an historical resource of 6.97 million pounds of uranium. The Juniper Ridge area was extensively explored during the 1950s to early 1980s by several operators including Teton Exploration, AGIP Mining, Urangesellschaft, and others.

The CMB Uranium/Vanadium Project is located in Labrador, Canada and has four currently defined resources - C Zone, Area 1, Armstrong and Two Time Zone. All four resources are open for expansion. The Company completed a Vanadium Resource Expansion Program, with the goal of significantly increasing the vanadium resource without the need for any drilling. An updated resource estimate is expected in Q1 of 2011.

Crosshair also continues to advance their gold projects in Newfoundland, Canada. The Company has completed 7,220 meters of drilling this year. This has expanded the zone of mineralization. A bulk sampling program is currently underway.

Earlier this month, Crosshair Exploration & Mining Corp. announced the results of the independent NI 43-101 vanadium resource estimate on the C Zone at their Central Mineral Belt (CMB) Project in Labrador, Canada. The vanadium contained outside of the existing uranium resource includes 30.92 million pounds of V2O5 (vanadium pentoxide) in the indicated category and an additional inferred resource of 81.33 million pounds of V2O5.

These resources are wholly contained within the C Zone. They do not include the vanadium contained within the uranium resource. The vanadium contained within the existing uranium resource includes updated values of 11.90 million pounds of V2O5 in the indicated category and an additional inferred resource of 12.29 million pounds of V2O5.

"We knew that the vanadium contained within our uranium resource was only a portion of the vanadium resource, but to increase it by more than 500% exceeded even our expectations," said Stewart Wallis, President and CEO of Crosshair.

Crosshair Exploration & Mining Corp. (CXZ) closed Tuesday’s trading at $2.22, up 15.63%, on 2,001,694 volume with 3,408 trades.  The average volume for the last 60 days is 1,090,186.  The 52-week low/high is $0.38/$2.50.

Strata Oil & Gas Inc. (SOIGF)

All Penny Stocks reported previously on Strata Oil & Gas Inc. (SOIGF), and we are reporting on the Company today, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Strata Oil & Gas Inc. is a Canadian junior exploration company whose shares trade on the OTC Bulletin Board. The Company focuses on carbonate-hosted bitumen deposits in the Peace River area of Alberta, Canada. Strata believes that carbonate-hosted bitumen is one of the next major frontiers in the oil industry, and they have positioned the Company to take full advantage of this. Strata Oil & Gas Inc. has their headquarters in Calgary, Alberta.

The Company’s emphasis is on full-cycle exploration. They believe that they can have a greater impact by developing their own exploration projects rather than acquiring advanced projects from others. The bitumen that Strata focuses on is contained in carbonates. It tends to be viscous and does not flow easily. This resource is primarily found in the so-called carbonate triangle in the province of Alberta.

The Company’s land base comprises approximately 125,822 acres (approximately 196.6 sections). Of that, nearly 124,542 acres (approximately 194.6 sections) is in the Peace River region. This region is estimated to contain more than 188 billion barrels.

Strata Oil & Gas Inc. also has an additional 1,280 acres (2 sections) in the Wabasca region. This region is estimated to contain in excess of 94 billion barrels [Alberta Department of Energy, Cold Heavy Oil Production With Sand In The Canadian Heavy Oil Industry, Dr. Maurice Dusseault, March 2002].

Strata's Peace River parcels are located in two major areas. Their Cadotte blocks are located close to Shell Canada's Peace River block and to the northwest of the Seal project. Development of bitumen in the Peace River region is still considered early-stage relative to Athabasca. Production is expected to increase in the region.

The Company is focusing on the bitumen-in-carbonate resource found in the Peace River region. This region sits in a large area over a known carbonate trend, which is only now being understood in regards to its production potential. The value of a portion of their Cadotte project is estimated at $1.2 billion USD according to a pre-feasibility study prepared by an independent firm.

Last Thursday, Strata Oil & Gas Inc. announced the release of their Resource Reclassification Report on their 100 percent owned Cadotte Project in the Peace River Oil Sands area of Alberta, Canada.

Norwest Corporation of Calgary Alberta completed this independently prepared Resource Reclassification Report on behalf of Strata. Norwest concludes that historical pilot testing in the region combined with field testing and ore characterization work that Strata has completed at Cadotte to date, is sufficient to allow Norwest to construct a computer simulation of a pilot design for the testing of Debolt bitumen producibility at Cadotte. It is also sufficient to demonstrate the existence of a carbonate pilot, not previously available, needed for the classification of the recoverable resource estimate for that area as "Contingent".

Strata Oil & Gas Inc. Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Ron Daems said, “This upgrade in resource classification solidifies Strata's position as an industry leader in the carbonates. Our newly classified Contingent Resource asset has greatly enhanced shareholder value, bringing our 56,000 barrels per day commercial plan a major step forward to fruition. Our attention in the coming months is to forge ahead with securing financing for our production testing phase, and to focus the company's manpower and resources on bringing the Cadotte project to Reserve status."

Strata Oil & Gas Inc. (SOIGF) closed Tuesday’s trading session at $0.31, up 40.91%, on 838,306 volume with 182 trades.  The average volume for the last 60 days is 93,049.  The 52-week low/high is $0.01/$0.55.

The company's first patent #5,960,447 includes 42 claims that cover a wide array of features applicable to existing Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) products and markets. Advanced Voice Recognition Systems' second patent #7,558,530 covers features vital to client server based ASR products such as today's smartphones, language translation applications and large medical transcription systems.

United States Patent and Trademark Office Declares Interference Involving Advanced Voice Recognition Systems' Patent

A patent interference is a proceeding conducted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) in instances where two or more parties claim patent rights to the same technology. The U.S. patent system awards patents to the first party who invented a particular technology. In an interference, the primary purpose of the USPTO is to determine which party invented the technology first, and to award the patent to that party.

On March 15, 2010, Advanced Voice Recognition Systems announced the declaration of interference by the USPTO. The USPTO declared the interference between Advanced Voice Recognition Systems' application serial number 09/351,542 as Senior Party and U.S. Patent #5,799,273 ("the Mitchell Patent") owned by Allvoice Developments, LTD ("Allvoice") as Junior Party. AVOI's patent was filed on November 13, 1995 approximately 10 months before the Mitchell filing. Advanced Voice Recognition Systems chose Oblon Spivak of Alexandria Virginia to represent the company in the interference proceedings. After nine months and thousands of hours of collaborative efforts of the team at Oblon Spivak, in conjunction with the inventors, expert witness and Advanced Voice Recognition Systems management, the final round of filings were submitted on December 2, 2010.

The Mitchell patent is the subject of a lawsuit that Allvoice filed against Microsoft in August 2009 in the East District Court of Texas in which Allvoice alleged infringement of Allvoices' Mitchell patent. Microsoft filed invalidity contentions based in part on Advanced Voice Recognition Systems' patent and its product Digital Dictate.

Advanced Voice Recognition Systems is actively pursuing license agreements or other strategic relationships with ASR market participants. The company will also continue to vigorously support and defend its patents through appropriate infringement and interference proceedings to protect the interest of shareholders and future licensees.

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

Simulated Environment Concepts, Inc. (SMEV) Offers Exceptional Opportunity For Growth

With certain industries there is one top-of-the-line product, and then there is everything else. Such is the case with SpaCapsule®, the self-contained personal sensory environment and anti-stress hydro-massage system offered by Simulated Environment Concepts (SE Concepts).

Although not the first system of its kind, SpaCapsule clearly stands alone in its superior design and functionality. Protected by various American and international patents, there’s simply nothing quite like it, a uniquely integrated combination of hydro massage, audio/visual stimulation, and aroma therapy. As a result, SE Concepts is expected to see explosive growth over the next few years, as the company cashes in on its unmatched position in an expanding industry.

• SpaCapsule is the only system of its kind that has a dual barrier between the water jets and the user, allowing for higher water velocity and a much deeper massage.
• Unlike other offerings, SpaCapsule provides a top-down massage, simulating a natural hands-on experience, and doing a far better job of enhancing circulation and muscle oxygenation.
• SpaCapsule’s computerized controls and software lets every user custom program (and store) all sensory elements of the system.
• Aroma therapy and other components are designed and built in to the system, as opposed to being inferior add-ons.
• SpaCapsule is the only system of its kind actually conceived and designed by doctors.

But the individual differentiating features offered by SpaCapsule are not as significant by themselves as when considered together. It’s the elegantly engineered integration that sets the product apart from anything else in the field, elevating SpaCapsule to a different level. Designed from the ground up by doctors and a team of engineers recruited from high-profile companies, SpaCapsule has redefined the industry and given SEC an exceptional opportunity for expansion. Through its international marketing campaign, the company is getting orders from all over the world.

Sinovac Biotech Ltd. (SVA) Announces SFDA Approval to Commence Clinical Trials for Enterovirus Type 71 Vaccine

Sinovac Biotech Ltd., a leading provider of biopharmaceutical products in China, announced this morning that it received approval from the China State Food and Drug Administration (SFDA) to commence clinical trials for its proprietary inactivated EV71 vaccine against Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease (HFMD). Sinovac must conduct each phase of the human clinical trials in accordance with SFDA requirements, conduct studies to assess safety and immunogenicity in the phase I and II clinical trials, and conduct efficacy study in the phase III clinical trial. The company filed the application to commence human clinical trials for its inactivated EV71 vaccine in December of last year.

Dr. Weidong Yin, Chairman, President & CEO, stated, “We are very pleased to advance our near term vaccine development pipeline with the approval from the SFDA to commence clinical trials for our internally developed EV 71 vaccine. Currently, there is no vaccine available worldwide for this disease. We had no precedent to go by during the development, so we had to start with the basic research on this vaccine. Moreover, our R&D people has successfully completed pre-clinical research and made significant breakthroughs during the development. We will move forward with our research and development of vaccines with the objective to supply high quality vaccine products to children worldwide as soon as possible and to contribute to the prevention and control of HFMD.”

The Company began preclinical research for its independently developed EV 71 vaccine approximately two years ago. The animal model, built by researchers at Sydney University, showed cross protection and demonstrated that the vaccine is effective in animals. Sinovac has already filed five patent applications covering the EV 71 vaccine.

China TransInfo Technology Corp. (CTFO) Contracted to Develop a Commercial Operation Center for Beijing Traffic-Information Service

Today, China TransInfo Technology Corp. announced that its subsidiary, Beijing Zhangcheng Science and Technology Co., Ltd. (”Beijing Zhangcheng”), has signed a contract with the Beijing Transportation Information Center to develop a commercial operation center to provide dynamic traffic-information services to drivers in Beijing. Valued at RMB 6.2 million (approximately $0.9 million), the contract will be classified within the company’s traffic information service business.

The Commercial Operation Center will include the traffic information-service distribution platform, a customized commuting-service demonstration system, and the launch of 500 interactive dynamic navigation terminals, which are expected to be completed by the end of next year. Beijing Zhangcheng must also provide two-years of traffic-information service via the 500 terminals starting in 2011 as part of the contract. After the contracted period, Beijing Zhangcheng will continue to provide traffic-information services at market price.

Last week, the Beijing government announced new measures to ease the city’s increasingly severe traffic congestion. According to the new regulations, Beijing will strengthen the role of traffic information and services to counter traffic congestion and smooth traffic flow. The Commercial Operation Center is expected to help address the city’s mounting urban transportation issues and advance the development of the market for consumer-oriented traffic information services.

“We’re very delighted to participate in the construction of the Commercial Operation Center, especially to provide terminal-based traffic information services,” stated Mr. Shudong Xia, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of China TransInfo. “Our selection is a strong validation of our technology and service capabilities. The government’s increased investment in traffic information services will continue to support the development of our industry.”

“Since Beijing Zhangcheng’s related platform, system and terminals have almost been finalized and meet the requirements of the Commercial Operation Center, we estimate that this contract can achieve 80% gross margins. In addition, the launch of 500 terminals represents the beginning of our offering paid traffic-information services in the Beijing market. The 500 interactive navigation terminals will also comprise a data source, which we will use to further improve the quality of our traffic-information service.”
