Kootenay Zinc Corp. (CSE: ZNK) (OTCQB: KTNNF) to Step Up Exploration Efforts following Chinese Production Cuts

Zinc prices soared over the last few days after top consumer China increased imports of the metal in wake of the country’s halting production as part of an environmental crackdown on the local steel industry. The Asian nation’s move to curb zinc and nickel production is likely to have a significant impact on global supply, with inventories already under pressure from growing demand and currently at about 342,675 tons (roughly 20 percent lower than last year), according to Reuters (http://dtn.fm/gP0yM). Zinc exploration corporations such as Vancouver-based Kootenay Zinc Corp. (CSE: ZNK) (OTCQB: KTNNF) are already exploring ways to step up efforts to find deposits so as to help meet the global demand for zinc.

Refined zinc imports to China jumped 21 percent year-over-year last month, reaching 47,469 tons (http://dtn.fm/H9mbb). Similarly, shipments of zinc ore and concentrates increased by 44 percent, Reuters said. This led to a significant increase in zinc prices, with the London Metal Exchange benchmark zinc closing up one percent at $2,658 per ton earlier this week – the highest since the beginning of the month.

Nickel prices also soared to $9,395, the highest in three weeks, as a result of growing Chinese imports. The halt in Chinese nickel production is unlikely to have a major impact, since the country accounts for only four percent of global supply. The situation, however, is significantly different when it comes to zinc, as the Asian nation accounted for at least 38 percent of global production before the crackdown. Both nickel and zinc are used in the steel manufacturing process – zinc for galvanized steel and nickel for stainless steel.

It is yet unclear how much of the country’s zinc and nickel production will be affected by the crackdown, but industry sources say the government is shutting down all steel mills that emit excessive pollution, along with zinc and nickel mining operations. Several of these operations might be reopened if they are found in compliance with environmental regulations, the sources added.

China’s move is likely to drive zinc demand even higher. According to the International Lead and Zinc Study Group, demand for the metal is already exceeding supply, and the difference is expected to reach 226,000 tons this year (http://dtn.fm/Lb7BC).

To help meet the rising demand, Canada’s Kootenay Zinc Corp. has already taken steps to expand its exploration program at its Sully property in British Columbia. The property is located near the legendary Sullivan Mine, which was one of the world’s largest reserves of zinc, with an output of over 17 million tons of zinc and lead until it was closed down in 2001. Kootenay’s Sully Project is located 18 miles from Sullivan, and both properties share different environments of the same basin.

Appointment of Jay Clayton as New SEC Chairman Could Be a Case of Birds of a Feather Flocking Together

The appointment of Walter Joseph Clayton as the new Chairman of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is hardly likely to ruffle any feathers on Wall Street. Clayton, in his previous incarnation as a partner of the law firm Sullivan & Cromwell, is well known to the denizens of that community as an advisor and counsel. However, according to Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wisc., Clayton having represented a number of those banking firms for 20 years certainly raises conflict of interest issues. She told USA Today (http://dtn.fm/P9juC), “To nominate a Wall Street insider to police Wall Street is like having a fox guard the hen house.” It seems the Senator’s reservations are well placed. There were hints of foxiness from Clayton even before he got the job as SEC head.

In the run up to his confirmation hearings on Capitol Hill, his bio, trumpeting a variety of high-profile deals and who’s who clients, vanished from the Sullivan & Cromwell website, as Politico reported in early March (http://dtn.fm/uW79j). A spokesperson for Clayton explained this by saying: “This was simply a function of him transitioning away from client work before the hearing.” Yet it raises the disturbing possibility that conflicts of interest will be resolved by sweeping them under the rug. Why the sudden shyness from the SEC chair?

Hiding stuff was always going to be difficult for Clayton. This is someone who is literally in bed with Wall Street. His wife Gretchen is a wealth manager at Goldman Sachs and has worked there since 2000, according to a Bloomberg report (http://dtn.fm/Fy0lq). In addition, Clayton has also been involved in a number of Goldman Sachs deals and, most notably, advised the investment bank on Warren Buffett’s $5 billion equity infusion and the U.S. Treasury’s TARP $10 billion investment in 2008. Clayton also worked on JPMorgan Chase’s acquisition of Bear Stearns in 2008 and advised Barclays Capital in connection with its purchase of Lehman Brothers’ assets after the latter was declared bankrupt.

He did file a Public Financial Disclosure Report with the U.S. Office of Government Ethics (OGE) listing his assets and liabilities that showed a net worth of around $50 million. The OGE report disclosed the positions Clayton held, such as his partnership at Sullivan & Cromwell LLP (S&C), the adjunct professorship at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, an executive membership of the Metropolitan Golf Association, and two trusteeships, but it required no mention of clients. References to clients that were listed in his bio on the S&C website, as recently as January, were deleted.

Clayton also fired off a letter to the SEC’s Designated Ethics Official, Shira Pavis Minton, setting out the steps he would ‘take to avoid any actual or apparent conflict of interest’. That letter listed a total of 176 investment vehicles.

However, going dark has served no useful purpose. The information no longer available on the S&C website can be discovered by searching the internet archive, the Wayback Machine, which shows that Clayton has worked on initial public offerings (IPOs) for the Chinese ecommerce portal Alibaba, investment bank Moelis, the hedge fund giant Och-Ziff and alternative investment manager Oaktree Capital.

Clayton has also worked for companies under government scrutiny, such as Deutsche Bank, UBS and Volkswagen, according to the New York Times’ Deal Book (http://dtn.fm/o2lWF), as well as Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, which is the subject of an SEC investigation over potential accounting irregularities.

Past records also show that Clayton represented Eni, an Italian oil and gas company that was investigated by the SEC and Justice Department for alleged anti-bribery violations. In addition, his clients include TeliaSonera, a Nordic telecommunications company with ties to Russia and Iran that stands accused of bribery by U.S. and Dutch regulators. Although Mr. Clayton played no role in the bribery case, he has criticized the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act that governs such offenses.

As Senator Catherine Cortez Masto, D-NV, observed in a letter to Clayton, four of his clients ‘have been charged with violations of S.E.C. rules in the last five years’, which brings to mind the old Aesop saw: you are known by the company you keep.

Kootenay Zinc Corp. (CSE: ZNK) (OTCQB: KTNNF) Aims for Strike at Sully Project Amid Global Zinc Shortage

It is a prime time to be in the zinc mining business, and Kootenay Zinc Corp. (CSE: ZNK) (OTCQB: KTNNF) is poised to profit in the midst of a continuing global zinc shortage and simultaneously booming prices.

As recently reported (http://dtn.fm/7RcNS), the price of zinc rose to $1.17 per pound and $2,628 per metric ton as of May 2017, representing a 60 percent increase over the previous year’s prices. This exceeded already propitious predictions that a deeper worldwide shortage would send zinc prices soaring as high as $2,500 per metric ton over the course of 2017 (http://dtn.fm/Mgwq5).

The current imbalance in the global zinc market is partly attributed to the 2016 shutdown of a number of zinc mines in China — the world’s largest producer of zinc, as well as its biggest consumer. Major zinc mines in other parts of the world have been experiencing declining ore supplies, as well, which is further credited as contributing to the shortage.

Seeking to cash in on the current global zinc shortage and price hike and to help meet the growing demand, KTNNF recently reported that it is expanding its active search for zinc at its Sully Project, which is located in British Columbia, Canada, just 18 miles (30 kilometers) from the legendary Sullivan Mine. The company recently reported it has completed three exploration holes at the site and that its project team is extending its survey efforts to the property’s west anomaly, including conducting state-of-the-art gravity mapping.

The Sully Project boasts shared geologic features with the famed Sullivan Mine, and the sedimentary rocks that host the Sullivan Mine are present at Sully, representative of different environments of the same basin. So far, geologic data indicates that the Sully Project shares the same stratigraphic level at which the Sullivan Mine was deposited, and it appears to coincide with the East gravity anomaly at the Sully Project. A subtle lead-zinc soil anomaly could reflect leakage up faults and dispersion through thick till and alluvium from an entirely buried deposit. A Cominco airborne geophysical survey has shown two N-S trending magnetic anomalies underground that are up to almost two miles long (1.86), that are approximately 0.62 miles apart, and that are near-coincident with the gravity anomalies.

So far, drilling efforts at the Sully Project have been a very near miss, meaning a strike may not be far away. Initial surveying at the project indicated that drilling conducted in 2004 only narrowly missed a shallow mass there. Work performed since then indicated the target was deep. The target may have been missed by just 100 meters, according to downhole temperature and magnetic field readings taken in 2014. KTNNF has initiated a drilling program and is targeting this East mass, which has been confirmed and better defined by new gravity data.

ChineseInvestors.com (CIIX) Growing Rapidly in a Rapidly Growing Market

Savvy investors study multiple factors to identify potential stock winners. Stock screeners scan thousands of companies for insights and data to discern uncommon opportunities. The criteria utilized in a stock screening system is obviously influenced by an individual’s investment proclivities such as high yield, value, growth or price momentum, however, most stock screening systems are typically hybrids with blended criteria reflecting individual preferences and incorporating more than one investment style. P/E ratios, near zero beta, increased dividends, revenue growth and market growth are all employed to sift through over 100,000 public companies around the world and the nearly 6,000 U.S. listed companies.

All markets are addicted to growth. Growth is the elixir that drives markets and share prices of individual companies higher, and every stock screening system includes growth measurement variables. Growth is a testament to value creation. Current and future growth are prime indicators of potential future performance of a company’s share price. When looking for growth, it makes sense to look closely at companies that are not only growing rapidly but also growing rapidly in a rapidly growing market. With compound annual growth estimated at nearly 60 percent, the CBD (cannabidiol) industry is arguably the fastest growing market in the world. In fact, just five months ago Forbes called the CBD industry, “The Cannabis Market That Could Grow 700% by 2020” (http://dtn.fm/5vDve). That kind of growth can change a portfolio.

Currently legal in 16 states with more expected to follow, CBD oil is non-psychoactive and considered to have a broad range of medical benefits. Derived from hemp or marijuana plants, CBD has shown varying degrees of efficacy in treating epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease, cirrhosis, pain, anxiety and stress.

CBD is obviously an explosive market opportunity. However, an even greater market opportunity lies outside the U.S., with over two billion Chinese speaking people. Acceptance and use of CBD oil is a natural fit with holistic Eastern-based medicine and an immense potential revenue generator for ChineseInvestors.com (OTCQB: CIIX). With two billion Chinese speaking people as its target market, ChineseInvestors.com recently executed a first-to-market milestone by creating the world’s only Chinese language, cannabinoid-based, therapeutic health products online store, www.ChineseCBDoil.com.

Historically, this specialized investment services company with 100,000+ users provided real-time market commentary, analysis, and education-related information in the Chinese language, as well as offered consultation, advertising, and public relations services. Now, the 18-year-old company is at the forefront of marketing and selling hemp-based food and beverages and hemp-derived CBD to Chinese-speaking consumers worldwide through its online store.

A recent research report by Consilium Global Research (http://dtn.fm/SA4bH) projects ChineseInvestors.com to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 100% through 2020. Consilium sees CIIX going through immense transformation this year as it pursues a larger stake in the global cannabis market. Before long, ChineseInvestors.com should pop up on multiple stock screeners, as it’s growing rapidly in a rapidly growing market.

The company currently has three products in pre-clinical trials: IGC-501 for treatment of neuropathic pain in adult humans, IGC-502 for treatment of seizures in animals, and IGC-504 for treatment of cachexia in humans and animals.

Two of IGC’s patent filings, IGC-502 and IGC-505, are for combination therapies to treat seizures in dogs and cats, which represents a remarkably large market. Statistics show that between one percent and over five percent of dogs in the United States have some kind of seizure disorder. Certain dog breeds with hereditary epilepsy may have up to 15-20 percent incidence of seizures.

IGC’s novel therapy uses cannabinoid extracts in combination with other drugs to treat seizures in both dogs and cats, and this therapy has potential for application in humans, as well. The therapy can be administered through a variety of delivery technologies.

Operating on the belief that expanding cannabis legalization will create explosive demand for cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical therapies and related technologies and services, IGC is racing to be at the head of the pack and to be a first mover in the marijuana space by developing novel therapies, filing patent applications, and acquiring technologies from related industries that can cross over to cannabis as soon as permitted by federal law.

The company largely employs an outsourced model and has formed strategic alliances with doctors and scientists with expertise in central and peripheral nervous system disorders, the FDA process, and in pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and veterinarian trials. IGC also continues seeking information exchanges with medical cannabis dispensaries, doctors, research scientists, biotech companies, and medical and business professionals within the cannabinoid space, placing great value on collaborative research that can aid in the commercialization of products and in locating new ways to help patients — both human and animal — benefit from cannabinoids.
