VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/18/12 -- West Melville Metals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:WMM) ("West Melville" or "the Company") and Hunter Minerals Pty Ltd ("Project Vendor") have agreed to amend the Isortoq Purchase Agreement (the "Agreement") to reduce the cash payment due from West Melville on December 31, 2012 from that amount equal to 10% of the gross proceeds of the Company's IPO (approximately US$ 550,000) to US$ 250,000. The Company will secure 100% ownership of the Isortoq Property on July 31, 2013 by paying the Project Vendor the amount that is equal to US$2,500,000 less the amounts paid up to and including December 31, 2012 (US$ 1,073,875) and issuing to the Project Vendor that number of share purchase warrants (the "VWAP Warrants") equal to US$500,000 divided by the price which is equal to 120% of the volume-weighted average trading price of the common shares calculated over the ten trading days up to but excluding July 31, 2013 (the "VWAP Price"). The VWAP Warrants will be exercisable for a period of five years and will be exercisable at a price equal to the VWAP Price.
The 41,900 hectare Isortoq Project is a large iron-titanium-vanadium prospect in southern Greenland. Previous drilling has confirmed a potential strike length of 15 kilometres with the mineralized body being open in both directions. The property is favourably located on a deep, ice-free ocean inlet on the temperate southern coast of Greenland within 60 km of Narsaq and 100 kilometres from Narsarsuaq International Airport. The mineralization at Isortoq is similar to the Mapochs deposit in South Africa, which has been successfully exploited for a number of decades by Evraz Highveld Steel and Vanadium Ltd. and its predecessors. Bench scale beneficiation tests completed on Isortoq core samples in 2010 by Xstrata Services gave average concentrate grades of 62.6% FeO (48.7% Fe); 19.1% TiO2 and 0.32% V2O5 with acceptably low levels of penalty elements S, P, Si, Al. These are positive indicators that support the economic potential of the project.

Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that ...

DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

We hear more and more about cyber-attacks on the websites of large corporations, banks and even small businesses. When online we’re concerned not only for our own safety but also our privacy. We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on. On the other hand, our own security is in danger bec...
