VANCOUVER, Dec. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Veris Gold Corp. (TSX: VG) (OTCQB: YNGFF) (Frankfurt Xetra Exchange: NG6A) (the "Company"). The Company is pleased to announce it has filed a final prospectus supplement in connection with its previously announced offering of units ("Units") of the Company (the "Offering"). The terms of the Offering have been amended such that the Offering will now consist of up to 7,200,000 Units at a price of C$2.10 per Unit representing aggregate gross proceeds of up to C$15,120,000. Each Unit will continue to be comprised of one common share of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant (a "Warrant") entitles the holder to purchase one common share of the Company for a period of 48 months following closing of the Offering at an exercise price of C$2.35.
In connection with the Offering, the Company has entered into an agency agreement with a syndicate of agents co-led by Haywood Securities Inc. and Casimir Capital Ltd., and includes Global Hunter Securities LLC (collectively, the "Agents") dated December 6, 2012 (the "Agency Agreement"), pursuant to which the Agents have been engaged to offer the Units on a best efforts agency basis. Global Hunter Securities LLC has been engaged to offer the Units only in the United States.
After reviewing the continued improvement in operations in the months of November and early December, and in light of the current unfavourable market conditions, the Company reduced the overall size of the previously proposed offering. The Company believes that certain items that had been part of the original use of proceeds can be addressed later in 2013 with excess cash from operations. Specifically, the planned first quarter drilling of the Mahala basin to convert inferred resources and certain components of the bonding requirement can be addressed in the second quarter utilizing free cash flow from operations. The amount of financing now proposed will be sufficient to support the Company's current targeted production rates for 2013 and significantly increase the projected free cash flow the Jerritt Canyon property can produce, as well as complete the de-risking of the asset by allowing the Company to complete all the remaining work required under the Consent Decree.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds to (i) fund the initial development of Starvation Canyon mine at Jerritt Canyon, (ii) fund a portion of the additional bonding for future reclamation obligations arising from the current years investment into a second tailings facility, (iii) fund the completion of re-grading existing rock disposal areas at Jerritt Canyon, the final item remaining under the Consent Decree, and (iv) improve working capital and also for general corporate purposes, all of which is detailed in the final prospectus supplement.
The majority of the net proceeds will be used for building the necessary infrastructure and making equipment purchases in order to open a third mine, Starvation Canyon, located on the south end of Jerritt Canyon. Ground was broken at Starvation Canyon in September 2012 and the portal was blasted and bolted in November 2012. Targeted production at Starvation Canyon will be in late Q1, 2013. This new mine is slated to produce approximately 45,000 ounces of gold per year.
The Offering is expected to close on or about December 18, 2012, subject to customary closing conditions including, receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals and the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange.
The Offering is being made in each of the Canadian provinces of British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario by way of a prospectus supplement to the Company's short form base shelf prospectus dated October 31, 2012, and in the United States pursuant to a prospectus supplement to the Company's short form base shelf prospectus filed as part of its registration statement on Form F-10 (File # 333-184496) with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on October 19, 2012, as amended on November 1, 2012 and effective November 2, 2012, pursuant to the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
