Each Unit consisted of one common share of the Company (each, a "Share") and one-half of one share purchase warrant (each, a "Warrant"). One whole Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one additional Share at a price of $0.20 per Share for a period of one year from closing of the Financing. Insiders of the Company purchased an aggregate of 6,250,000 Units.

The proceeds of Financing will be used for working capital and to continue the permitting process for Dewey Burdock.

The securities issued in connection with the closing of the Financing are subject to a restricted period that expires on March 7, 2013.

The Company did not pay any finders' fees with respect to the Financing.

The Conversion Shares issued to Synatom represent 9.9% of the outstanding Shares, calculated on a non-diluted basis but including the Shares sold by Powertech in the Financing. After the acquisition of the 12,500,000 Conversion Shares referred to above, Synatom holds 23,390,000 Shares, representing approximately 18.6% of the outstanding Shares (calculated on a non-diluted basis but including the Shares issued in the Financing).

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
