Cogitore Initiates Drilling of Gold Hill Showing at Lemoine Project

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 11/20/12 -- Cogitore Resources Inc. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:WOO) is pleased to report the beginning of a drilling program testing the Gold Hill showing at its Lemoine project south of Chibougamau, Quebec. The program is entirely funded by Blackrock Metals.

Blackrock is a private company currently advancing an adjoining iron-titanium-vanadium project to production. In exchange for certain road and railroad access and rights of way, Blackrock has agreed to fund a phased condemnation drilling program along a portion of the north boundary of Cogitore's Lemoine property. A total of 1,393 metres in 5 holes have already been drilled (and paid for) by Blackrock in 2012. No significant assays were obtained in the first phase drilling. However, additional drilling has started in the vicinity Gold Hill gold showing where four shallow holes are planned, including a contingency hole.

Results of recent chip sampling of the Gold Hill showing by Cogitore included up to 0.92% copper and 85.4 g/t gold (2.49 oz/ton gold), and 0.87% copper and 1.9 g/t gold over narrow widths. These results are consistent with historical surface sampling reported by Teck Exploration Ltd in 1999 which included grab samples up to 2.8% copper and 48.2 g/t gold, and a chip sample returning 6.3 g/t Au over 7.3 metres. The gold-copper mineralization at Gold Hill is associated with a NNE oriented vein structure developed within intrusive rocks of the Lac Dore Complex, which is the same unit hosting all of the ore produced in the Chibougamau Camp. Historical cumulative production from the main Chibougamau Camp totalled 43 Mt grading 1.7% Cu and 2.3 g/t Au for a total production of 1.6 billion pounds of copper and 3.2 million ounces of gold.

"The on-going development work by Blackrock provides Cogitore with a unique opportunity to test a very interesting gold showing at no cost to the Company. We are looking forward to seeing the results of the program" says Dr. Gerald Riverin, President and CEO. "Vein type gold deposits are not at all uncommon in mining camps yet recognized for their volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) deposits. The nearby past producing Lemoine mine being one of the highest grade VMS deposits in the world with 4.2 g/t gold in addition to 4.2% copper and 9.8% zinc is perhaps telling us that Cogitore's Lemoine property may also have good potential for gold deposits other than VMS type and the Gold Hill showing may be reflecting exactly that."

Recent assays mentioned in this press release were done at ALS Minerals laboratories of Val d'Or, Quebec, with appropriate standards, duplicates and replicates used for quality control purposes.

Work is carried out by the Company's personnel, under the supervision of Gerald Riverin, PhD, P.Geo. He is a qualified person (as defined by National Instrument 43-101) and has more than 35 years of experience in VMS exploration.

The Lemoine project is located in the Chibougamau mining camp, Quebec, which is a natural resource based community serviced by rail, paved highways and regularly scheduled air service. Major forestry roads traverse the Lemoine property. In the 1950's and 1960's Chibougamau was one of Canada's largest copper producing districts.

The Company's strategic focus is on base metal exploration in prospective areas that also feature infrastructure favourable for mining development. Its current focus is in the Abitibi Belt of Quebec and Ontario.

While this has unlocked huge opportunities to accelerate the deployment of new capabilities or increase economic efficiencies within an organization, i...

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
