SlowLane, PaperPerson:
Happy New Year.

The #5 company on the list, Aurcana (v.AUN), is showing hyper-growth in 2013-2014. S/B producing close to 10 million silver oz. within 12 months. This coupled with a likely spike in siver prices could very well drive AUN to from 3X to 5X of the current SP. Isn't rapid increase in SP the objective?

Hi DrBill,
Thanks for your comments! I am not familiar with Aurcana so maybe the information in the Motley Fool article is dated but that says:

" that Shafter has achieved commercial production we will see whether this budding mid-tier producer can come through with theambitious initial production goal of 3.8 million silver ounces in its first full year of operation."

Do they intend to go from 3.8MM to 10MM ounces over the second/third year?

Scratch that...I just found it here:

So that article was from February and the CEO said 500,000 ounces per month within 2-3 months. Do you know if they are there yet?

Yup, saw that thanks. The fact that they are going into production in the US may be an added attraction if there is going to be a bull market in precious metals.

In the emerging cannabis industry, my
current favorite is XCHC (36 mm shs, 13-15 cents per share).
This is a highly volatile stock field dominated by penny stocks such as MJNA, which I sold. This one is more of a microcap than a penny, in that it has only 36 million shares. It was a shell taken over in December by some excecutives from CBIS, which is a penny stock but had been gradually putting together a couple of interesting deals.

The stock is running on news it acquired a 25 percent stake in a jv with an indian tribe in Canada to produce cannabis and run medical clinics up there.

The chart shows it breaking out above its 200-day moving average, and that the on-balance-volume, which i watch as a sign of accumulation or distribution, looks very strong.

XCHC risks: zero cash, feds conceivably could kill the deal.

but I think this latest announcement should have some investors writing checks.

DALLAS, Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The X-Change Corporation (NASDAQ OTC:
XCHC) (X-Change Corp. or the Company), a U.S. boutique company whose niche is
cannabis and hemp based extracts and products that target medical cannabis,
cosmeceutical, nutraceutical, and social usage solutions through multiple
Phytiva Brand product lines and solutions, is proud to announce it has entered
into a historic agreement with WOLASTOKWIK NeGoot-Gook, Maliseet Nation at
Tobique (the "Maliseet Nation") of New Brunswick, Canada, to participate in the
development and growth of a legal cannabis growing facility, clinical
laboratory, manufacturing and production facility, and treatment center (the

The Agreement allows for legal cannabis and hemp-based medical research and
treatments with true global significance, as the operations under the Agreement
facilitate medical cannabis and hemp research, clinical trials, and treatments,
among numerous other opportunities for the parties to the Agreement, for the
first time in North America. And these historical groundbreaking operations,
including medical treatments, will be open to the citizens of the world in a
legal manner. The sovereignty of the Maliseet Nation allows this venture to
accomplish its goals of helping patients while being legally compliant.

The Agreement was effectuated by the Company's purchase of the twenty-five
percent (25%) stake in a joint venture from Cannabis Science, Inc. (NASDAQ OTC:
CBIS). Details of the Company's stock-based asset purchase will be released in a
Form 8K to be filed promptly.

Anyone here follow European Uranium (EUU.V)? Was in near cash value at 18-20c. Added several times in the 28-36 range for an acb of 32c. Looks like this baby is just gonna keep running. MACD about to cross signal.

Also, look out for NexGen Energy Ltd reverse merger with Clermont Capital. NexGen has a nice deposit in the Athabasca along trend with Rough Rider and adjacent to FIS J-zone.
