On March 12, 2018, NextView closed on its $257 million cash deal to acquire NIA's #1 lithium exploration stock suggestion Lithium-X (TSXV: LIX), paying $2.61 per share up 169% from NIA's initial suggestion on March 24, 2016 at $0.97 per share!

On June 5, 2018, First Cobalt closed on its $149.9 million stock deal to acquire NIA's #1 cobalt exploration stock suggestion U.S. Cobalt (TSXV: USCO). Following the March 14, 2018 announcement of the deal, USCO rose to a record high of $1.34 per share up 123.33% from NIA's initial suggestion on March 27, 2017 at $0.60 per share! NIA reprofiled the company on January 23, 2018 at $0.79 per share and said in its alert, "NIA is 1,000% confident that USCO will explode to new record highs in the upcoming days/weeks! USCO will soon become recognized as the market's #1 cobalt pure play with the greatest short-term upside potential!"
On June 17, 2018, South32 announced the signing of a $2.1 billion cash deal to acquire NIA's #1 silver exploration stock suggestion Arizona Mining (TSX: AZ), agreeing to pay $6.20 per share up 1,575.68% from NIA's initial suggestion on November 10, 2014 at $0.37 per share when NIA named AZ (then Wildcat Silver) as its #1 overall stock suggestion for 2015! Since the release of NIA's report on November 10, 2014, AZ has been the #1 largest gaining gold/silver stock in the entire market, rising 22.7X more than the median gold/silver company!
Over the last 28 months, cobalt has increased more than 3 1/2X in value rising from $21,750 to its current price of $79,150. By far, cobalt has been the world's #1 largest gaining commodity, and NIA expects to see a lot more consolidation in the cobalt industry between now and year-end.
An estimated 60% of the world's cobalt production comes from Congo and a large percentage of the cobalt produced in Congo comes from illegal artisanal mining - with thousands of children being forced to mine for cobalt. It has become a major political issue in the U.S. with the government issuing sanctions against companies that import cobalt from these illegal Congo mines.
U.S. Cobalt became so extremely valuable for NIA members because its cobalt project was located in Idaho vs. most other companies exploring for cobalt in Congo. U.S. Cobalt's project was also a primary cobalt deposit vs. 97% of the world's cobalt production currently mined as a by-product of copper and nickel.
Cobalt deposits in the U.S. are extremely rare, but Chile is a mining friendly country that recently published a major report about the country's potential to become the world's next big producer of cobalt outside of Congo to feed the electric car industry.

Two months ago, the private U.S. investment fund Genlith became the first company after 70 years to reactivate cobalt exploitation in Chile. Click here to read about this major development!
Earlier this month, CRU closed on the acquisition of a major land package in Chile that is adjacent to Genlith's project! CRU's newly acquired Chile cobalt project is located in Chile's Carrizal Alto historic cobalt region, one of the only regions identified in Chile's recently released cobalt report as containing major primary cobalt deposits!
CRU meets all of the same criteria that caused NIA to suggest U.S. Cobalt prior to it recently being acquired by First Cobalt in a deal worth $149.9 million! CRU's cobalt project is located in a mining friendly region (Chile) outside of Congo, with potential to contain one of the world's rare primary cobalt deposits, and it is located adjacent to a major historical producing cobalt mine that is currently being explored by a large U.S. investment fund Genlith!
At CRU's current price of $0.255 per share it has an extremely low market cap of $14.216 million with a very good chance of soon becoming NIA's biggest cobalt winner in history!
