Bioasis Technologies: A Very BIG Year in Review
It’s been a very busy, big and ambitious year for Bioasis Technologies Inc. (TSX-V.BTI, OTC:BIOAF, Forum) – a biopharmaceutical company focused on revolutionizing science by transporting therapeutic payloads across the blood-brain barrier and into the brain. And while much has been accomplished by this cutting-edge biotech in 2020, much more exciting news is expected in the pipeline for 2021.
In a relatively short period of time, the Company has generated real shareholder value by developing and commercializing its proprietary brain delivery technology – XB3 – to make life-saving drugs brain-penetrant and deliver those drugs at a therapeutically relevant dose.
In this must-hear end-of-year vodcast, Stockhouse Media’s Dave Jackson was joined by CEO Dr. Deborah Rathjen to talk more about the genesis of the amazing xB3 platform, its long-term investment potential, and all things Bioasis moving forward into 2021.
Mining Exploration in the Presence of Giants, in the Heart of the Golden Triangle
There’s been a lot of buzz on Stockhouse about the vigorous renewal of major mining operations going on in a prolific, but underexplored region of British Columbia. And one junior explorer thinks it may have found gold, copper, silver and nickel deposits that they “believe have the potential for a world-class mineral discovery.”
Metallis Resources Inc. (TSX-V.MTS, OTC: MTLFF, FSE: 0CVM) is a Vancouver-based junior resource company focused on the exploration of copper and high-grade gold at its 100%-owned Kirkham Property, located near Stewart B.C., in the historic and prolific Golden Triangle in the province’s northwest region.
In this lively and informative podcast, Stockhouse Media’s Dave Jackson was joined by Peter Oates, Manager of Corporate Communications, to talk about some of Metallis’s recent exciting news from their exploration project, the property’s location near other major discoveries in the immediate area, and the company’s future plans.
The SUPER-State Cannabis Company that’s on the Move
It’s been a busy and productive last few months for the cannabis industry’s only true super-state operator. And as reported by Stockhouse back in August, this Company continues to make big waves in some of North America’s biggest markets.
Cannabis company Red White & Bloom Brands Inc. (RWB) (CSE.RWB, OTC:TDRYD, Forum) went public on the CSE in June 2020 and has struck several deals since then, including acquiring licensing rights to the iconic High Times brand in Michigan, Illinois, and Florida, in June.
A month later, RWB exercised out an option to acquire Pharma Co – a deal which would give the Company ten dispensaries in Michigan and eight more in various stages of development, as well multiple grow facilities.
Then last month, Red White & Bloom closed the acquisition of the Platinum Vape Group of California-based companies, whose products are sold at more 700 retailers in Michigan, California, and Oklahoma. When combined with RWB’s 3.6 million square foot Illinois greenhouse that’s licensed to grow hemp, you have a healthy set of assets.
In this lively and informative podcast, Stockhouse Media’s Dave Jackson was joined by Red White and Bloom’s Chairman and CEO Brad Rogers to talk all things Red White & Bloom.
SH: First off, let’s talk about the difference between super-state operations and multi-state operations. What’s the distinction and how does being ‘SUPER’ play into your expansion plans?
BR: Well, super is better than multi. I would think just because of what we saw was you know, it was a land grab across multiple States and there was a premium on, in the markets for the most States with the most stakes in the ground. And really that made no sense to us in terms of how to run a business. And so, you know, critical mass is where it's at for us. And, you know, with critical mass, you become a, you become super, you know, I mean, that, that was we, we needed to redefine what the value there, what in the definition of superstate operator versus multi-state operator, and really set ourselves apart and say, you know what, we're going deep, wherever we go, we're going critical. Wherever we go. You know, one store in 19 States does not make for a great business because you have to manage them all.
You have to work with compliance your governance, et cetera. You know, one whim of a regulatory framework change in any state can really put you out of business if you're not on top of it. And so where we wanted to be was really owning a state and really owning the business and, and being able to help shape that business within that state that we're in and our beachhead was Michigan. And so we started there and went critical mass. And so that was one of the starting of what we saw is really redefining MSO into SSL superstate operator. And then of course, as you, as you succinctly said, we went into Illinois with a real strategy there with respect to seeing you know, the hemp bill came through and now, you know, CBD is now a national potential for the United States.
And we started there because we were a little bit late to the game in the, in the Illinois market to get a license there for THC, however, we're actively pursuing one right now. And, and being very, very look looking like we're got some traction there as well. So I won't get ahead of myself there. But I think that that's effectively what we wanted to do and it's 3.6 million square feet. So a massive, massive operation. And you know, when that TAC license comes in a 200,000 square foot canopy, we'll do, you know, a very, very nice piece of business. We estimate somewhere around 200 plus million dollars of revenue just in that one facility with no stores and satiate that market and have the ability to do that with really no cap ex out because we've got the infrastructure already. So, you know, a very strategic play in a very critical mass way

Iron Ore & Vanadium in Quebec: Who’s Driving BOTH Markets?
One of the world’s least known metals also happens to be of immense importance and is likely to become even more so as renewable energies catch up with and, eventually, eclipse fossil fuels. If you don’t know much about vanadium, you’re not alone.
About six months ago, a Canadian mineral exploration Company published a Preliminary Economic Assessment outlining annual production of approximately five million tonnes of high-grade, low-impurity, iron concentrate…grading roughly 65 percent iron along with 0.6 percent vanadium penta-oxide per tonne of concentrate from its Mont Sorcier Iron and Vanadium Projects…located in the historic mining jurisdiction near Chibougamau Québec.
Vanadium One Iron Corp. (TSX-V: VONE, OTC: VDMRF, Forum) started its 2020 drill program at Mont Sorcier targeting to expand the current resource base and deliver a new Mineral Resource Estimate (MRE) by Q1 2021. This drill program aims to increase the current resources to a minimum of between 900 million to 1.1 billion tonnes at grades of between 24 to 34 percent magnetite. Additionally, these results are intended to enhance the value presented in the PEA.
In this intriguing podcast, Stockhouse Media’s Dave Jackson was joined by Company President and CEO, Cliff Hale-Sanders, to discuss Vanadium One’s latest drill program at Mont Sorcier in Quebec, vanadium’s key attributes and markets, and the Company’s unique dual resource business model.
