  • A definitive distribution agreement to partner on the sale of Vertical’s wollastonite from its world-class St-Onge Deposit
  • Vertical will supply wollastonite to AREV Brands for distribution and/or resale
  • Vertical’s high quality wollastonite has been shown to be beneficial to cannabis plants – significant improvements in root mass, powdery mildew control and pest elimination.
  • At a microscopic level, wollastonite’s needle-like structure penetrates soft-bodied insect larvae and pupae, interrupting the life cycle without the use of pesticides

VERTICAL EXPLORATION INC. (TSXV:VERT) and AREV BRANDS INTERNATIONAL LTD. (CSE:AREV) are pleased to announce that, further to the press release of September 12th, 2019, the two companies have entered into a definitive distribution agreement to partner on the sale of Vertical’s wollastonite from its world-class St-Onge Deposit in order to supply the fast growing cannabis and hemp industries.

Vertical and AREV Brands have agreed to enter into this distribution agreement, whereby Vertical will supply wollastonite materials produced from its St-Onge mineral property located in Quebec to AREV Brands for distribution and/or resale to both small scale “craft” cannabis or hemp growing operations and large scale cannabis or hemp growing operations licensed by Health Canada.

Vertical’s high quality wollastonite has been shown to be beneficial to cannabis plants in a variety of ways. In February 2019, Vertical announced the successful completion of Phase Three trials involving cannabis grown with wollastonite (CaSiO3) as a soil additive at BC Bud Depot’s (BCBD) ACMPR-licenced Research and Development facilities in Vancouver, BC. In the Phase Three trials BCBD measured and recorded significant improvements in root mass, powdery mildew control and pest elimination. At a microscopic level, wollastonite’s needle-like structure penetrates soft-bodied insect larvae and pupae, interrupting the life cycle without the use of pesticides. Wollastonite’s unique properties also allow it to break down into calcium, magnesium and silicon in a highly bio-available form that balances soil PH throughout the growth cycle – this allows the cannabis plants to uptake silicic acid and promotes strong cell walls that better resist insect feeding and spore penetration, supporting increased growth and elevated product yields. (see February 5th, 2019 news release)

Peter P. Swistak, President/CEO of Vertical Exploration Inc., commented: “We are very pleased to have signed our first distribution and sales agreement with AREV Brands, as we believe there is a large and growing cannabis and hemp market opportunity for Vertical’s world-class St-Onge wollastonite. I firmly believe that this distribution partnership will be highly beneficial to both companies.”

This transaction is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

What is Wollastonite?

  • Wollastonite is a chemically simple mineral named in honor of English mineralogist and chemist Sir W.H. Wollaston (1766–1828). It is composed of calcium (Ca) and silicon and oxygen (SiO2, silica) with the chemical formula CaSiO3. Although much wollastonite is relatively pure CaSiO3, it can contain some iron, magnesium, manganese, aluminum, potassium, sodium, or strontium substituting for calcium in the mineral structure. Pure wollastonite is bright white; the type and amount of impurities can produce gray, cream, brown, pale-green, or red colors.

Wollastonite’s Many Uses

Cannabis Research:

  • Wollastonite has already many well-known benefits in agriculture
  • Testing in a controlled way for the use in the cannabis industry.
  • Possibly the first in the industry to do trials.
  • Engaged AGRINOVA for Wollastonite Research and Development
  • Entered into a Distribution Agreement with AREV Brands, where Vertical will supply its St-Onge wollastonite to AREV for direct distribution to both small-scale craft growing operations and potentially larger-scale Health Canada approved companies directly involved in growing and processing cannabis and hemp.
  • Testing of Vertical’s St-Onge wollastonite on a range of important agricultural end uses will also be conducted
  • Became a member of the International Fertilizer Industry Association (IFA), as part of its ongoing efforts to promote and strategically market it’s world-class St-Onge wollastonite to a range of potential end-users.

Major Demand in Ceramics Industry:

  • Combination of high brightness and low gas release of Wollastonite when heated creates demand
  • Brilliant whiteness of importance to coatings and filler markets

Wollasatonite applications are endless

  • An industrial mineral comprised chemically of calcium, silicon and oxygen. Its molecular formula is CaSiO3 and its theoretical composition consists of 48.28% CaO and 51.72% SiO2.

St. Onge Wollastonite Deposit 2019

  • Twenty-three (23) drill holes totaling 1,784.0 metres were completed
  • Twenty (20) drill holes intersected high-grade wollastonite zones, confirming excellent continuity and correlation with the thickly mineralized zones intersected by previously reported historical drill holes.
  • Sixteen (16) drill holes intersected high-grade wollastonite zones right up until the end of the hole, which are all open at depth.
  • A total of 1,107.5 meters of high-grade wollastonite mineralized core length was intersected, representing approximately 62% of all drilled core length.

In the Phase Three trials BCBD measured and recorded significant improvements in root mass, powdery mildew control and pest elimination. In every case the most optimal results occurred with an admixture rate of 10% to 15% wollastonite to the growth medium. Most notably, powdery mildew, the most common fungal blight to affect Cannabis sativa, was virtually undetectable with wollastonite admixture above 10%. An admixture above 10% wollastonite also correlated with sharp reductions in the presence of thrips and fungus gnats, insect pests with a sub-soil life phase in which the wollastonite crystals lacerate and impale their soft bodies. At a microscopic level, wollastonite’s needle-like structure penetrates soft-bodied insect larvae and pupae, interrupting the life cycle without the use of pesticides.

Recently engaged AGRINOVA’s Phase 1 Research program has also demonstrated that Wollastonite can potentially become BNQ certified for agricultural use in Quebec. Click Here for More Info

Santa Rosa Junior College’s Agriculture Department is developing a new hemp agriculture program that will train students in the cultivation of hemp (Cannabis sativa L.), with a goal of launching the program in fall 2020. SRJC is the first community college in California to develop a certificate and degree program focused on hemp.

Beginning spring 2020, students can take hemp-focused courses within the existing SRJC Sustainable Agriculture and Horticulture programs. Courses include Introduction to Plant Science, Soil and Plant Nutrition, Integrated Pest Management, Organic Crop Planning and Production, and several other courses that will be included in the new Hemp Agriculture certificate and degree.

Benjamin Goldstein, the dean of agriculture, natural resources, and culinary arts, said that he is proud that SRJC will be at the forefront of training students for this industry. “One of our top priorities is ensuring our career education programs align with current industry trends,” he said in a press release announcing the news. “Hemp is a versatile plant at the center of a multi-billion dollar legal industry for medicine, fiber, oil, seeds, textiles and more. We are preparing our students with the knowledge and skills to be competitive in the workplace.”

Hemp is a genetically distinct biotype of cannabis sativa that is grown for fiber, seed or oil. It is used in the production of products such as food, beverages, cosmetics, nutritional supplements, fabrics, textiles, construction materials, and other manufactured goods. Unlike marijuana, hemp is legal at both the federal and state levels and does not contain significant levels of THC, the compound in marijuana known for its psychoactive effects. Hemp is used to product non-psychoactive cannabidiol (CBD), which has shown enormous promise in medical applications.

“Hemp is a dynamic crop with a myriad of uses,” said faculty member Dr. George Sellu in the release. “It is ideal for teaching plant science and plant propagation techniques in indoor and outdoor environments while addressing the tenets of agro-ecological sustainability. As a plant science instructor, I am thrilled to utilize hemp in my classes as an educational tool.”

“There is no other community college doing this, and it’s so relevant in California,” said Norma Gomez, a current SRJC student. “There are thousands of jobs available for students with knowledge of hemp agriculture. Plus, we can get real hands-on experience growing hemp at Shone Farm.”

SRJC Shone Farm is growing a 0.8-acre test plot of hemp plants. This cultivation site is registered with the Sonoma County Ag Commissioners Office and follows all federal, state and county legal and regulatory requirements.

It is the first community college hemp farming operation in California.
