AVENTURA, Fla., Jan. 6, 2012

AVENTURA, Fla., Jan. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Fuse Science Inc. (OTCQB: DROP) (www.fusescience.com), announced today that its new EnerJel™ product is now available for sale on Amazon.com. The online retailer has over 60 million active customers worldwide and represents the first in a series of expanded distribution channels planned by the company.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20110615/CL20255LOGO )

Fuse Science launched its first product EnerJel™ in a series of 4 on December 30, 2011 online at www.poweredbyfuse.com. The overwhelming interest in Fuse Science and the product launch forced the company to increase server capacity ahead of schedule in order to handle spikes in traffic. These actions were completed in real time without issue and positions the company's accelerated growth. Inherent in this strategy is the continued advancement of its global distribution strategy that began online and will move to targeted global retail locations in 2012.

Such demand was created as Fuse Science has made significant inroads within the athletic community and was able to secure endorsers to include Tiger Woods, David "Big Papi" Ortiz, and Arian Foster. FUSE Science made major headway this week as Tim Grover (trainer to the NBA elite) endorsed EnerJel™ and said, "I am partnering with Fuse Science and sharing this technology with some of the best athletes in the world to help them improve their nutrition and natural performance." ]]>

Canasia to Acquire Aluminous Clay / Rare Earth Prospect in Gaspe Bay Region of Quebec
Jan 6, 2012 8:30:00 AM


VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 6, 2012) - Canasia Industries Corporation ("Canasia" and the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CAJ)(PINKSHEETS:CANSF)(FRANKFURT:45C) is please to announce that it has entered into an option agreement to acquire approximately 5,500 contiguous acres prospective for Aluminous Clay and Rare Earths in the Gaspe Bay Region of Quebec, near Murdochville.

Negar Adam, President of Canasia stated, "Management is pleased to be able to enter into an option agreement in such a highly sought after mining region in Quebec. This property borders Orbite Aluminae Inc.'s Grande-Vallee aluminous clay deposit. A work program is anticipated to commence in the coming months to test for aluminous clay and rare earths over the extent of the prospect. This now provides Canasia with two major areas of focus in the coming months, with the other being the Clone Gold Prospect where the 2011 bulk sample returned significant values of 102 tons consisting of 4.0 oz/ton gold or 137.1 g/t gold. The board is excited about what may transpire in 2012, as we plan to have multiple work programs that we intend to develop aggressively."

Terms of the new agreement are $20,000 and five million shares upon closing, as well as five million shares within 13 months of closing. Work commitments are: $100,000 in the first 18 months, $250,000 within the first 30 months and $500,000 within 42 months. The agreement is with an arms length vendor and subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval.

On October 25th, 2011, the Company announced that it has been informed by the operator that assays have been received for the 102 one-ton lots comprising the 2011 bulk sample from the Clone property, situated 12 miles southeast of Stewart, British Columbia. The average for the 102 tons was 4.0 oz/ton gold or 137.1 g/t gold. This year's bulk sample contains 408 ounces of gold, which when added to the 68 ounces collected in the 2010 bulk sample (34 tons at 68.65 g/t gold), amounts to 476 ounces in total. Previously, there were drill results on the Clone that returned drill intercepts of 44.75 g/t over 12.8 meters (October 22, 2009). The Company anticipates generating revenue from the gold sales in 2012 collected from the bulk sample.

Canasia also announced (October 7, 2011) that it has increased its rare earth acreage in the vicinity of the Eldor Discovery in Quebec, which brought Canasia's total to 7,198 contiguous acres prospective for rare earth. ]]>

ESP Resources, Inc. (OTCBB:ESPI) (the "Company" or "ESP Resources"), an oil and gas services company offering analytical services and essential custom-blended oil and gas well chemicals which improve production yields and overall efficiencies, today announced the deployment of its 6th chemical delivery fracking (a.k.a. hydraulic fracturing) unit and provided an update on continued revenue growth from its chemical delivery units.
The Company's chemical delivery fracking units are deployed to natural gas wells from its Guy, Arkansas district office. The 6th chemical delivery fracking unit was deployed on December 30, 2011 and is set for completion work in Oklahoma.

Each unit pumps chemicals to treat the fluids used in the completion of oil and gas wells from "shale" formations. Each unit consists of a trailer mounted pumping system with associated power generation components, a chemical supply trailer, safety and spill prevention equipment, communication devices, and computerized reporting equipment. It is anticipated that current units will be used in the completion of wells in the Fayetteville Shale in Northern Arkansas. ESP Resources' Guy, Arkansas office is located in the middle of the shale formation trend where it is able to easily and economically supply the chemical units to any of the 21 counties where drilling activity is currently ongoing.

Moreover, the Company is currently supplying specialty chemicals and services to two of the largest independent oil and gas operators for the use of these units on a continuous basis. The Company's specialized chemical formulation provides for a longer term bacteria-contamination elimination time frame than what is currently supplied by its competitors. The longer term time frame provides the Company's customers significant cost savings in the removal and/or treatment of contaminants from the oil and gas well-stream once the well has been placed into production. Potential savings via increased productivity can be substantial for the Company's customers.

Revenue from the Company's fracking units business started in June of 2011 and is already expected to exceed management's original September 2011 estimates of $9.0 million over the next year. Fracking unit revenue is in addition to the Company's existing petrochemical production business.

David Dugas, Chief Executive Officer of ESP Resources, commented, "With the deployment of our sixth unit, we have not only boosted our fracking revenues and increased our twelve month forecast, but we have also increased our ability to capitalize on new business from some of our major oil & gas customers. We are pleased that this business segment is seeing healthy growth and expect this trend to continue. Given the amount of well completion work available now and that is anticipated going forward, we believe that we can maintain a continuous stream of deployment of these units on a long-term basis."

NSRS gold acquisition http://www.thepennystockblog.com/bulletinboard/showthread.php?11314-NSRS-gold-acquisition&goto=newpost Fri, 06 Jan 2012 14:46:44 GMT North Springs Resources Reaches Agreement to Acquire Two Gold Properties in Guyana
Jan 6, 2012 9:00:00 AM


LAS VEGAS, NEVADA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 01/06/12 -- North Springs Resources Corp. (OTCBB: NSRS)(PINKSHEETS: NSRS) (the "Company" or "North Springs") is pleased to announce it has reached an agreement in principle to acquire a 100% interest in two prospecting licences in the prolific gold producing region known as the Kabouri Gold Mining Area in the country of Guyana, South America. The Company is currently completing its final project due diligence and negotiating the definitive terms of the potential acquisition. A definitive agreement is expected to be reached and executed within 48 hours.

The "Kabouri Project Area Licence R-20" and "Kabouri Project Area Licence R-21" cover a combined area of over 25,000 acres of prime greenstone belt located about 160 km south-south west of Georgetown, Guyana. The properties share similar geological and geochemical characteristics with several well-known gold producing mines in the immediate area at Omai, Kabouri, Eldorado, and Hicks. Although the R-20 and R-21 licences have no documented history of gold production, they show evidence of artisanal mining from alluvial, colluvial, and bedrock sources. Extensive regional geochemical surveys and stream sediment surveys conducted by the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission ("GGMC") showed moderately to strongly anomalous gold concentrations within both properties that warrant immediate follow-up. The entire R-20 and R-21 prospecting licence area has been subject to regional geological and geochemical studies by the GGMC and is also covered by compiled aeromagnetic data.

"This is a fantastic opportunity for North Springs to acquire two very large properties right in the middle of one of the most important gold producing regions in the world. The location of the properties, their geologic setting, and their history of artisanal mining all combine to give this project huge potential upside with relatively low early stage risk," stated Harry Lappa, President of North Springs Resources. "The widespread artisanal mining in the area is a very an important exploration factor for us to consider. The Omai Mine, to the southeast was worked for many years by artisanal miners before being re-discovered as large scale commercial mine with over 4 million ounces of gold produced. We intend to find out if the artisanal workings on the R-20 and R-21 are also just the tip of a much larger deposit lurking underneath."

The Kabouri Gold Mining Area is part of a well-defined 1,000 mile long band of gold producing greenstone geology from Venezuela and French Guyana. The area is often compared to similar gold producing areas in West Africa. Numerous world-class gold mines have operated in the region with an estimated total combined gold resource of over 110 Moz., including Las Christinas (17 Moz. - Venezuela), El Callo (18 Moz.-Venezuela), Toroparu (10 Moz. - Guyana), Aurora (6.5 Moz. - Guyana), Omai (4 Moz. - Guyana), Gros Rosebel (13.7 Moz. - Suriname), Nassau (9 Moz. - Suriname), and Paul Isnard (3.9 Moz. - French Guyana).

The proposed transaction remains subject to, among other things, North Springs and the vendors entering into a definitive agreement and completion of satisfactory due diligence by both parties. There can be no assurance that the transaction will be completed as proposed or at all. If and when a definitive agreement is memorialized, additional details regarding this transaction will be forthcoming.

Jan 5, 2012 9:58:00 AM


STATESVILLE, N.C., Jan. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Bebida Beverage Company (OTCmarkets: BBDA) (BeBevCo) a developer, manufacturer and marketer of relaxation and energy drinks announced today that it has reached an agreement with Redwood Management LLC to retire convertible debt that had been purchased by Redwood from Y A Global (Yorkville Advisors). This transaction is the final chapter in eliminating the old convertible note.

This debt had plagued Bebida Beverage Co. since the company changed CEO's in 2009. Over six years old, the debt was re-negotiated by CEO Brian Weber in 2009 from $408,000 to $250,000 and is now reduced to zero. This is the second pre-2009 Convertible Debenture that BebevCo's current CEO and team has eliminated during 2011.

"This is a quantum moment for our Company. We have weathered this storm of dilution to pay off old debts with a lump sum cash payment," said Brian Weber, CEO of BeBevCo.

"Our stock will no longer be at the mercy of the issuance and sales of millions of shares by debt holders. This is a clear message to shareholders that any new share issuances for capitalization benefit the Company and go toward our Brands and growth of the Company only.

"2012 will be a huge year for us and our shareholders. Between all the deals we have completed in North and Central America and now with the expansion to Europe we are on the cusp of a huge growth spurt that will continue into the foreseeable future," Weber went on to say.

About BeBevCo

OPXS revenues released http://www.thepennystockblog.com/bulletinboard/showthread.php?11310-OPXS-revenues-released&goto=newpost Thu, 05 Jan 2012 15:42:54 GMT RICHARDSON, Texas, Jan. 5, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Optex Systems Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB:OPXS.OB - News), a leading manufacturer of optical sighting systems and assemblies primarily for Department of Defense applications, today announced operating results for its fiscal year ended October 2, 2011.
Revenues for the year ending October 2, 2011 were $16.2 million as compared to revenues for the year ending October 3, 2010 of $22.9 million, representing a decrease of $6.7 million or 29%. The reduction in revenues was primarily attributable to decreased spending by the U.S government. During the year ending October 2, 2011, net income was $0.6 million compared to a net loss of $10 million for the year ended October 3, 2010. The net income in 2011 as compared to the net loss in 2010 is primarily due to the non-recurring $8 million charge in 2010 for impairment of goodwill and intangible assets and the resulting lower intangible asset amortization expense of $0.3 million in 2011. The other predominant cause of the positive change from a net loss in 2010 to net income in 2011 was the higher gross margin on revenue primarily attributable to changes in product mix and improved production efficiencies.
Our EBITDA increased by $0.84 million for the year ending October 2, 2011 as compared to the year ending October 3, 2010, despite the significant decrease in revenues. The increase in EBITDA was primarily the result of a shift in product mix to more profitable product lines combined with the completion of the Howitzer loss programs during the year. In addition, reductions in force and plant reorganization efforts, completed during the second half of 2010, had a positive economic impact on the cost structure for all product lines. We expect this trend to continue into fiscal year 2012 as there are no remaining loss contracts in our backlog and our streamlined infrastructure costs should continue to allow us to be profitable at reduced production volumes.
Danny Schoening, COO of the Company, commented, "During the year ending October 2, 2011, we completed our loss Howitzer contracts. This caused a reduction in revenues, but an increase in gross margin. We expect to continue to experience reductions in the Government's military spending and have therefore continued to focus our business development efforts on international sales. This approach recently generated a $7.8 million award, which was previously announced on November 7, 2011, and we will continue to seek out attractive international opportunities. We also intend to promote the use of newer technologies in our existing platforms in order to provide our customers and the warfighter with leading products at the best value."

JUHL wind power stimulus money http://www.thepennystockblog.com/bulletinboard/showthread.php?11299-JUHL-wind-power-stimulus-money&goto=newpost Wed, 04 Jan 2012 16:39:57 GMT WOODSTOCK, Minn. , Jan. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Juhl Wind Inc.
(OTCBB: JUHL.OB - News), the Leader in Community Wind Power, today
announced the receipt of approximately $1,413,000 in U.S. Stimulus
Grant funds for its recently completed $4.8 million Winona County
Wind Project in Winona County , MN. The grant was issued by the
U.S. Treasury Department in accordance with the American Recovery
and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The proceeds of the grant primarily
went toward payment of construction costs for the project, now
owned by the company's Juhl Renewable Assets Inc. subsidiary.
The Winona County Wind project was completed and put into
commercial operation in the fourth quarter 2011. It is one of six
wind farm projects that Juhl Wind has completed in the past 24
months, together these properties represent over $150 million in
project development. It is one of the first sites in North America
to utilize two Unison, direct-drive wind turbine generators - a
leading technology based on an advanced, gearless system. The
project was developed and constructed by Juhl Energy Development
Inc., the wholly-owned, development subsidiary of Juhl Wind Inc.,
with initial project participation by the Winona County Economic
Development Authority.

"We are very proud to once again have another one of our projects
successfully participate in the U.S. Stimulus Grant program,"
stated Dan Juhl , Chairman and CEO of Juhl Wind, Inc. "The U.S.
Stimulus program has provided very important support for the
continuing growth of our Community Wind projects throughout the
Midwestern United States. Community-owned wind farms not only
deliver a totally clean and low-cost energy resource, but also help
truly secure our U.S. energy future by keeping the ownership of
this resource in the hands of American farmers and landowners. To
us at Juhl Wind, this seems like the right place for our tax
dollars to be put to work. As a result of this program, we have
been able to get our community wind projects financed in the face
of a very difficult recession, creating tangible short and
long-term economic development in the heart of rural America.
Accordingly, we are pleased to have created construction jobs and
permanent work while at the same time helping to secure our energy
future." ]]>
