Queensland Bauxite

A day after pushing back its re-listing date by two weeks, Queensland Bauxite’s (ASX: QBL) new cannabis business has signed on with an Israeli partner to make drugs in Australia. Since July while it seeks to recomply with ASX rules the company has been suspended from trading, as it switches from bauxite to cannabis.

QBL is in the process of buying, MedCan, the licensed cannabis grower, to make products in Australia has signed an agreement with Israeli company. Pharmocann says it’s already started trials in Israel, the pair will also work together to start clinical trials in Australia.

A Queensland permit to hold Schedule 9 substances, MedCan has licences for manufacturing, cultivation, importing and exporting. In order to actually start growing medical cannabis, it will still need a federal permit, which is the last step before growing can commence. Since early 2017, Medcan Australia CEO Craig Cochran said they’d been talking to the Israeli company. 

Cann Global has been pushed back by two weeks into November, news comes a day after Queensland Bauxite (ASX: QBL) said their return to the market.

Since July 30, 2018 while it seeks to recomply with ASX rules the company has been suspended from trading, as it changes from bauxite explorer to cannabis company. For shares issued over a period of six years, Queensland Bauxite also revealed that it needs Federal Court approval.

Such as through a prospectus, the Corporations Act allows small scale shares to be issued without disclosure, but if the person who receives the shares wants to sell within 12 months a disclosure must be made.

According to law firm Steinepreis Paganin, it’s to avoid situations such that stock is quickly offloaded into the market to retail investors who didn’t know new stock had been issued and where a placement is made to a professional investor without disclosure. Emptying the shares of any restrictions, not making those declarations can mean suspension from the ASX potentially for long periods of time.

From early January to the middle of April this year, iCandy Interactive (ASX: ICI) was suspended as it waited for a court order cleansing shares in October the previous year sold from a single placement. It’s finding out just how many shares have been sold that shouldn’t have been, says Queensland Bauxite. As they’re hoping for a court turnaround of three weeks, they believe they can resolve the issue a little quicker than iCandy.

Queensland bauxite is currently under suspended status as at October 13, 2018, however, it was last trading at $0.037. The stock has seen a performance change of 236.36% over the past twelve months under the metals and mining sector.
