VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/26/12 -- Forum Uranium Corp. (TSX VENTURE:FDC) and Mega Uranium Ltd. (MGA: TSX) are pleased to announce assay results from the first drill target at the NW Athabasca property under option from Cameco Corporation. Uranium mineralization was encountered at shallow depths in two holes drilled on Zone 2A (see news release dated November 8, 2012).
Drillhole NWA-35 - 2.48% U3O8 over 1.5 metres at a vertical depth of 26 metres with a 0.5 metre interval grading 5.77% U3O8.
Drillhole NWA-34 - 20 centimetres grading 0.27% U3O8 at a vertical depth of 50 metres, located only 20 metres west of the historic Zone 2A mineralization.
Further drilling is recommended in the Zone 2A area where additional targets have been delineated including an EM conductor 40 metres to the west, along strike from the known mineralization at Zone 2A.
The drill rig is currently investigating the Barney target, a gravity low west, and on strike from, the Maurice Bay deposit. Uranium mineralization within zones of strong basement alteration has been intercepted in several holes. This is the third target that has encountered uranium mineralization on the property. A full description of the results will be released upon completion of drilling at the Barney zone.
The NW Athabasca property hosts the Maurice Bay deposit (historical resource(i) of 1.5 million pounds uranium at a grade of 0.6% U3O8). A winter drill program is planned for the first quarter 2013. All targets are similar to Cameco's Millennium deposit and Rio Tinto's Roughrider deposit at much shallower depths (less than 100 metres).
(i)Historical resource for the Maurice Bay deposit, as reported by Saskatchewan Industry and Resources, Miscellaneous Report 2003-7, has not been calculated or classified under the specifications of National Instrument 43-101 and should not be relied upon.
Quality Assurance and Quality Control
Core samples are collected and shipped in sealed containers to the Saskatchewan Research Council, an ISO/IEC 17025:2005 (CAN-P-4E) certified laboratory for geochemical analysis using the Uranium ICP Package. This package is the preferred analytical technique for detecting uranium and pathfinder elements in the alteration halos of unconformity-type uranium deposits in the Athabasca Basin. Ken Wheatley, P.Geo. (Saskatchewan, NWT/Nunavut), Forum's Vice President, Exploration is the Qualified Person that has reviewed the contents of this news release.
Forum and Mega Option with Cameco
The NW Athabasca project is 87.5% owned by Cameco and 12.5% owned by AREVA. Forum and Mega have formed a 50/50 joint venture, with Forum as Operator, to earn a 60% interest from Cameco on the NW Athabasca project by completing $4 million in exploration over four years and making cash payments of $400,000 over three years of which $140,000 has been paid. It is anticipated that Forum and Mega will vest their joint 60% interest in the property upon completion of the current program.

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...

We’ve worked with dozens of early adopters across numerous industries and will debunk common misperceptions, which starts with understanding that many of the connected products we’ll use over the next 5 years are already products, they’re just not yet connected. With an IoT product, time-in-market provides much more essential feedback than ever before. Innovation comes from what you do with the data that the connected product provides in order to enhance the customer experience and optimize busi...

A critical component of any IoT project is the back-end systems that capture data from remote IoT devices and structure it in a way to answer useful questions. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle large data sets, but they are not well suited to many IoT-scale products and the need for real-time insights. At Fuze, we have developed a backend platform as part of our mobility-oriented cloud service that uses Big Data-based approache...

The increasing popularity of the Internet of Things necessitates that our physical and cognitive relationship with wearable technology will change rapidly in the near future. This advent means logging has become a thing of the past. Before, it was on us to track our own data, but now that data is automatically available. What does this mean for mHealth and the "connected" body? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Lisa Calkins, CEO and co-founder of Amadeus Consulting, will discuss the impact of wea...

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...
