Liberty Star Submits Testimony to US House of Representatives Committee on Natural Resources RE: Strategic Rare Earth Elements

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:40 AM on Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

TUCSON, Ariz. — Liberty Star Uranium & Metals Corp. (“Liberty Star” or the “Company”) (OTCQB: LBSR) is pleased to announce written Testimony for the Record has been submitted to the US House of Representatives Committee on Natural Resources Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources for the July 23rd hearing on ”American Metals and Mineral Security: An examination of the domestic critical minerals supply and demand chain.”

CEO/Chief Geologist Jim Briscoe’s address to Shareholders “About Rare Earth Elements” (August 7, 2013) is included in the testimony.

Briscoe’s opening remarks are also included in the Testimony for the Record:

“I am founder, CEO and Chief Geologist of Liberty Star Uranium & Metals Corp., an Arizona-based mineral exploration company engaged in the acquisition and exploration of mineral properties in the states of Arizona and Alaska. Last year I addressed the shareholders of the company regarding the urgent and continuously growing need for rare earth elements (REEs) by industry and the military. I submit that communication here today for the subcommittee’s reviews.

Before presenting that communication, I would like to give the Committee some background on what I believe could be a large and reliable source of rare earth elements in southeast Arizona. While more exploratory work is required, my company discovered the presence of at least 4 of the 17 REEs while conducting geochemical surveys for copper and gold in southeast Arizona, near Tombstone, Arizona, in an area we call the Hay Mountain Project.

In May 2012 we reported via news release (NR 122): ”A surprising presence of rare earth elements (REEs) has been defined over a large area (7 to 9 square miles). This was completely unexpected and justifies further study. The REEs we assayed for are among the 17 REEs now known, are strongly anomalous, and are scandium, yttrium, lanthanum, and cerium. The other 13 known REEs were not included in our assay process. In due course we will re-assay the samples for these additional REEs.”

Fully two years after we made our discovery showing that rare earth metals are associated with the alteration pattern of porphyry copper deposits (the type of copper deposits dominant in the USA and most of the world), the Head of the U.S. Geological Survey Natural Resources Program, Dr. Lawrence Meinert, discovered rare earth elements at Bisbee, Arizona, a porphyry copper deposit only 20 miles south of our Hay Mountain Project. In a short professional letter he described his discovery and opined that porphyry copper mineral deposits may become the most important source of REEs: a point with which I agree.

While previously only small insignificant amounts of REEs had been detected throughout the state, this finding in a new area of mineral exploration could introduce high tech and environmentally sensitive mining to southeast Arizona and would include other strategic metals. The Hay Mountain Project will be primarily a copper mine that would also produce gold, silver, molybdenum, zinc, lead and REEs—all strategic metals required for the 21st Century economy and beyond.”

Cannabis Stocks Edge Higher Last Week Led by Nuvilex & Entertopia

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 10:25 AM on Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014

WHITEFISH, MT / July 22, 2014 / The Marijuana Index(TM) moved slightly higher last week, despite a 7% drop in GW Pharmaceuticals plc (NASDAQ: GWPH) shares. Medbox Inc. (OTC: MDBX), the second largest component of the index, also fell over 5% last week.

Top gainers last week included Nuvilex Inc. (OTC: NVLX), which jumped more than 16.5% after reporting positive results in dogs for its anticancer treatment, Enertopia Corp. (OTC: ENRT), which jumped more than 13% after receiving municipal approval for its MMPR joint venture in Burlington, Ontario, and Novus Acquisition & Development Corp. (OTC: NDEV), which rose more than 12% last week.

Cannabis regulatory initiatives also gained ground last week. In a favorable swing, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to support making it easier for cannabis-related companies to access the commercial banking sector. A new survey also found that U.S. citizens are increasingly embracing both medical and recreational marijuana following the successful rollout of both programs in several states.

What’s New?

- CannLabs Continues to Make Tremendous Strides – CannLabs Inc. (OTC: CANL) recently announced the addition of industry experts to its leadership team, updates to its services to accommodate new Colorado MED testing requirements, and a new ticker symbol.

- West Point Starts Cannabis Breathalyzer Development – West Point Resources Inc. (CNSX: BLO) recently announced that it has selected a prototype development firm to complete the initial version of its Cannabix Marijuana Breathalyzer in partnership with its engineering team.

- A Supreme Opportunity in the Cannabis Space – CannabisFN takes a look at Supreme Pharmaceuticals Inc. (OTC: SPRWF) and its low-risk, high-reward strategy for obtaining licensed producer status from Health Canada under the country’s new MMPR framework introduced this year.

- House Votes to Allow Marijuana-Related Banking – The U.S. House of Representatives voted 236-186 in support of making it easier for cannabis-related businesses to work with commercial banks, a problem that has caused some marijuana businesses to become criminal targets.

- Cannabis Therapy’s Multi-Pronged Approach – CannabisFN takes a look at Cannabis Therapy Inc.’s (OTC: CTCO) unique business strategy, existing hemp cultivation, and why their laboratory research could be a significant catalyst for the stock over the coming quarters.

- Capitalize on the Green Rush with DigiPath – CannabisFN takes a look at DigiPath Inc. (OTC: DIGP) and its unique and synergistic plans within the cannabis industry focusing on laboratory testing, training/education, and cannabis-related media ventures.

What to Watch This Week

The cannabis sector continues to move higher, as it recovers from its lows made earlier this year. In Canada, investors are still waiting for MMPR licensing decisions to be made for several companies, while keeping an eye on the injunction that’s keeping the country’s MMAR program alive for now. In the U.S., regulators appear to be increasingly supportive of cannabis, as state-wide experiments continue to be positive in terms of both public safety and tax revenue from cannabis.

Virtutone Announces New $10 Million USD Line of Credit With a Tier One U.S. Bank

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 1:07 PM on Monday, July 21st, 2014

Sherwood Park, Alberta / July 21st, 2014 / Virtutone Networks Inc. (“Virtutone” or the “Company”) (TSX Venture: VFX.V) is pleased to announce that it has secured a new $10 million line of credit with a tier one U.S. bank.

The line of credit is a one-year renewable term at a rate of prime plus 1.5% per annum. The facility is based on 85% of good accounts receivable.

“This new facility will significantly increase our revenues and goes a long way to helping us meet and potentially exceed our financial projections for this year,” said Jason Allen, Chief Executive Officer. “It will also substantially lower our cost of capital and therefore help drive profitability. We see a lot of attractive business that, prior to obtaining this line, we were unable to land, so we will have no trouble deploying this capital to the benefit of our shareholders.

“We are pleased to be working with this new bank, which understands our business and is willing to work with us to grow it. Although it took longer than we expected to find the right lending partner, finding this one has made the wait worthwhile.”

With this new line of credit, the Company has declined the previously announced $7.5 million credit facility on November 1st, 2013, as the cost of the capital was very high, and had restrictive terms. The Company required a larger and more long-term partnership providing the Company with more flexibility and a lower cost of capital.

For further information please contact Jason Allen at 780-702-5777.

Toronto opens first referral-only medical marijuana clinic

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 11:26 AM on Monday, July 21st, 2014

BLAKE WOLFE | QMI AGENCY

TORONTO – Inside a brand-new medical clinic near the intersection of Yonge St. and Eglinton Ave., a patient walks up to the counter following his appointment.

An employee stands with him, offering advice on the man’s new medication.

“Be sure to grind it well before putting consuming it,” the staffer says. “You want it fluffy like dryer lint. Fluffy is your friend when it comes to vaporizers.”

The patient thanks him for the advice and heads out the door.

It’s a normal exchange at the Cannabinoid Medical Clinic — CMClinic for short — Toronto’s first referral-only medical marijuana clinic.

It was a busy first week for executive director Dr. Danial Schecter and his staff after officially opening the clinic’s doors on July 14 and seeing dozens of the approximately 700 patients on the wait list. Talk of additional clinics in Canada is already taking place, Schecter says.

The clinic opened in the wake of new federal regulations regarding medical marijuana use. The rules, which came into effect on April 1, require that patients procure their stash from an approved supplier with a doctor’s prescription.

Schecter, who learned of marijuana’s medical effects while studying at the University of Montreal, set up the Toronto clinic after successfully using the plant to treat several patients at his former practice near Georgian Bay.

“I had a patient who suffered from anxiety so badly that he literally flapped when he walked into my office,” recalled Schecter, adding that the man self-medicated with alcohol and was afraid to consume marijuana for fear of returning to prison. “I saw his treatment as a success, and when the new regulations were announced, it was an opportunity to help many more people.”

Despite criticism from some doctors and health organizations about the lack of evidence for marijuana’s medical benefits, Schecter said he hopes to change that perception by contributing to the emerging field through his work at the clinic. He explained that in his experience, family doctors fall into three categories:

The 10% who are firmly opposed to the medical use of weed, another 10% who are open to the concept but cautious, and the 80% who are willing to prescribe it as a last resort for patients who have tried everything else.

“This is something that’s talked about for maybe five or 10 minutes in medical school,” Schecter mused. “The research done here will allow us to make a solid contribution to a novel field of medicine. I’m trying to educate the skeptical physicians and help that 80% (willing to prescribe marijuana).”

While other marijuana clinics have recently sprung up in Toronto, Schecter is quick to point out that CMClinic is referral-only and is covered through OHIP, similar to other medical specialists that a patient may be referred to by their family doctor.

Clinic spokesman Bridget Best said the facility operates more as a referral and educational centre for doctors and patients who may need assistance in learning about the various forms that cannabis can take as well as the myriad consumption methods.

Schecter said that as opposed to the typical recreational user who may consume mass quantities of weed due to tolerance of the drug, his patients often manage their pain by using less than a gram per day.

While patients are free to consume marijuana in whichever way they choose, the clinic sells vaporizers (which create marijuana vapour instead of smoke) as opposed to typical head shop fare like glass pipes and bongs.

No marijuana is stored on site, Best said.

Pursuing a medication more often associated with recreational and illicit consumption is often a last resort for most of the clinic’s patients — many of whom hail from various points across the GTA and southern Ontario, while others still have inquired from as far away as Germany and Panama.

Schecter, who said that he tries to avoid prescribing pot to anyone under 25 due to the inconclusive effects of the drug on the growing brain, deals predominantly with patients in “chronic pain,” ranging from those suffering with the lingering effects of accidents and chemotherapy to those requiring palliative care.

Travelling to the clinic from Bowmanville, patient Bob Landry recalled the 2011 traffic accident that left him with lingering pain and headaches. While Landry said that he has successfully used marijuana to treat his condition after traditional prescription drugs proved either ineffective or unthinkable, he sought out the clinic to help with proper dosages.

“I tried normal painkillers first, then my doctor offered me Oxycontin — I refused,” Landry said, explaining that his cousin had died from the controversial drug. “I believe this is the solution. I prefer to acquire it legally and, this way, I know what I’m getting.

“I hope to one day return to my normal activities.”

Liberty Star Update: naseba Hosted Middle East Trip to Make Presentations, Hay Mountain/Mine Finders

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:39 AM on Monday, July 21st, 2014

TUCSON, Ariz.–Liberty Star Uranium & Metals Corp. (“Liberty Star” or the “Company”) (OTCQB: LBSR) is pleased to give an update of the recently concluded Middle East roadshow hosted by Naru Capital (“Naru”), a division of naseba. Company CEO/Chief Geologist Jim Briscoe presented Liberty Star’s premiere property Hay Mountain Project (“Hay Mountain”) in conjunction with the Mine Finders training program (NR 177). All ten meetings were successful with requests for additional information including confidentiality/non-disclosure agreements, project details and specific proposals. It is anticipated that from these meetings the Company can proceed to a memorandum of understanding (MOU) and or a letter of intent (LOI) with the final objective, an executed contract funding the Hay Mountain Project with or without the Mine Finders program. Briscoe’s summary of events:

“The roadshow started in Saudi Arabia (SA) Sunday (a work day) June 22 and was complete after visiting senior executives of 10 large organizations in three different countries in five cities and concluded on Friday evening, June 27. The meetings were conducted in Dammam, Riyadh, and Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, Muscat, Sultanate of Oman, and Istanbul, Turkey.

Naru Capital functions as a deal originator for investors in the growth markets with an unbiased approach to sourcing potential investment targets.

They have developed relationships with a network of qualified investors including private investors, sovereign wealth funds, financial institutions, state owned enterprises, educational institutions, natural resource investment companies, private equity firms and capital advisory firms across the growth markets. Their dedicated investor analysts leverage their extensive knowledge and match the needs of the investors with the specifics of the project. Naru’s reach in the liquid emerging markets has led to a database containing over a million contacts with areas of expertise including capital markets, energy, health care, and natural resources (our category).

From their list of investor clients Naru determines what entities are a match for the client’s project. They start with hundreds of potentials and screen them over a period of months. It involves an extensive search for just the right matchup between the client (Liberty Star) and the objectives and financial capability of the investor and includes extensive targeted vetting. Only a few finalists are chosen – in our case 10 entities.

Meetings are arranged between the client (Liberty Star) and the potential investor, the business case is presented in a personal one on one meeting.

After the presentation Naru provides a debrief report and an action plan for Liberty Star with input from the investors.

For each investor met with a positive response, Liberty Star will send a confidentiality, non-compete agreement (CA), a proposed deal, a letter of intent (LOI), a memorandum of understanding (MOU) and then, after an agreement has been hammered out, an executable contract. Of course after the CA has been signed Liberty will disclose all information on the project to the potential funder.

As a result of our presentations, all parties have responded positively and would like further documents and information.

We are currently working on preparation of documents. We are preparing thank you notes, confidentiality/non-disclosure/non-compete agreements, background data, and business plans and proposals for the Hay Mountain Project and the Mine Finders program, and are preparing letters of intent and memoranda of understanding, which we believe will lead to one or more investments in our proposals.”

Forward-Looking Statements

Statements in this news release that are not historical are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements in this news release include all our planned drilling program and our planned route to access partners or funding sources. Factors which may delay or prevent these forward-looking statements from being realized include: the failure of our proposals to be accepted; we may not attract any partners or funding sources through the intended routes; we may not be able to raise sufficient funds to complete our intended exploration, keep our properties or carry on operations; and an inability to continue exploration due to weather, logistical problems, labor or equipment problems or hazards even if funds are available.

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 7:20 AM on Monday, July 21st, 2014

LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA–(July 21, 2014) - Robix Alternative Fuels Inc. (“Robix” or the “Corporation”) (CSE:RZX) announced today that it has appointed Kevin Aylward as a strategic advisor to the Corporation. Mr. Aylward has significant experience and expertise in regulatory and environmental affairs, government relations, investor relations and media relations. Having served as Minister of the Environment with the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador under Premier Brian Tobin, Mr. Aylward brings a wealth of contacts and a comprehensive understanding of the environmental issues facing the country, especially as it pertains to coastal regions. During his tenure as Minister of the Environment, the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador cultivated an offshore oil and gas industry that balanced wealth generation for the Province with preservation and protection of the ocean and Newfoundland coast. His experience has enabled him to develop extensive expertise in negotiations/mediation both in the Public and Private Sector. In addition, Mr. Alyward is currently the President and CEO/Director of NWest Energy Corporation, a TSX-V listed company.

“As a successful businessman and advocate for the environment, Kevin is very much aware of the need to balance sustainability with the ever increasing demand for energy,” commented Nathan Hansen, President and CEO. “We are delighted to welcome him as an advisor to Robix and I look forward to working with him in the coming months as we prepare to unveil our first commercial COV unit. I believe Kevin’s guidance and experience will be invaluable to the Company at this stage of our development.”

In addition, Robix intends to settle outstanding indebtedness of $510,000 through the issuance of 680,000 common shares of the Corporation at a deemed price of $0.75 per common share (the “Debt Settlement”). The common shares issued in connection with the Debt Settlement will be subject to a four month hold period.
