Concurrently, the Corporation continues to work towards obtaining the necessary permits with respect to the Oracle Ridge project located near Tucson, Arizona.

In July 2012 we received the Pima County Stage II Air Quality Installation and Operating Permit. The amended Aquifer Protection Permit ("APP") is under technical review and a draft permit is expected to be issued for public comment by or about the end of 2012.

Also in July 2012, we announced that we had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (the "MOU") with Pima County for the development of the Mine. The County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a resolution in support of our proposal to re-open the Oracle Ridge mine, and also approved and ratified the MOU. Pursuant to the MOU, we intend to exchange approximately 133 acres of private land for certain Pima County land that lies between the mine site and the tailings facility and that is necessary for the purposes of constructing, operating and maintaining conveyance pipelines, utilities and portions of a road for the Oracle Ridge project site. Further, we intend to provide at least an additional 300 acres of land to Pima County as mitigation for potential disturbances related to the operation of the Oracle Ridge project.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT.
