Los Azules Copper Property Lawsuit Against McEwen Mining Settled

TNR's 25% Right to Back-In at Feasibility Restored

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- TNR Gold Corp. ("the Company") (TSXV: TNR) is very pleased to announce that TNR Gold Corp. and its wholly owned subsidiary, Solitario Argentina S.A. (together, "TNR") have reached a settlement with McEwen Mining Inc. which resolves the outstanding litigation with respect to the Los Azules Copper Project located in San Juan Province, Argentina ("Los Azules").

The settlement restores a 25% back-in right to TNR which is exercisable following the completion of a feasibility study.  The back-in right allows TNR to back-in for 25% of the northern part of the Los Azules property, which McEwen Mining has said contains the largest share of the known resource at Los Azules.  

In addition, TNR receives an industry standard Net Smelter Royalty of 0.6% and 1 million shares in McEwen Mining (information about McEwen Mining can be found at http://www.mcewenmining.com and on Sedar at http://www.sedar.com).  The Net Smelter Royalty is over the northern portion of the property and is triggered if TNR chooses to back-in for 5% or less or is diluted below 5%. In return, TNR will discontinue its claims and transfer to McEwen Mining the mineral rights to a property called Escorpio IV.     

Kirill Klip, Non-Executive Chairman of TNR Gold, stated, "I welcome the positive resolution of the Los Azules litigation in the out of court settlement between TNR Gold and McEwen Mining.  I would like personally to thank Rob McEwen as this resolution is a highly beneficial outcome for both our companies.  Removing the uncertainty over the rights to Los Azules will allow the project to now achieve its full potential for the benefit of the shareholders of both TNR Gold and McEwen Mining, and I consider our stake in McEwen Mining as a strategic holding for TNR Gold."

However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
