Falcao Gold Project Transaction Update

TORONTO, Jan. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Horizonte Minerals Plc, (AIM: HZM, TSX: HZM) ('Horizonte' or 'the Company') the exploration and development company focused in Brazil, announces that it has elected to terminate its share purchase agreement ('the Agreement') with Guyana Frontier Mining Corp. ('Guyana Frontier') (TSX-V:GYG) for the sale of HM Brazil (IOM) LTD which holds Horizonte's interest in the Falcao gold project ('Falcao') in northern Brazil to Guyana Frontier, currently under option to AngloGold Ashanti Ltd. ('AngloGold').

The Agreement (see news release 06.11.12) was originally entered into by Horizonte in line with the Company's strategy of divesting and monetising its gold assets to focus on the development of its flagship 100% owned advanced Araguaia nickel project in northern Brazil.  However, subsequent to due diligence and review, the Board believes that the transaction does not offer the best value proposition for the Company and Horizonte shareholders.  The Company will continue to review and evaluate new gold opportunities both at a project level and corporately.

About Horizonte Minerals:
Horizonte Minerals plc is an AIM and TSX listed exploration and development Company with a portfolio of nickel and gold projects in the Carajas District of Brazil.  The Company is focussed on creating value by generating and rapidly advancing exploration projects in tandem with joint ventures with major mining companies, providing mid-term cash flow, which is then used to develop the business and pipeline projects.

Horizonte has two committed major mining partners: Teck Resources Limited, a major strategic shareholder in the Company, and AngloGold, a JV partner on the Falcao gold project.

Horizonte owns 100 per cent of the advanced Araguaia Nickel Project located to the south of the Carajas mineral district of northern Brazil. The project has defined a resource with size and grades comparable to other world-class projects in northern Brazil and the Company has completed a Preliminary Economic Assessment on the project which illustrates robust economics based on low strip ratio, good infrastructure, large mineral resource with two viable alternatives for processing.

Horizonte is well funded to accelerate the development of its core project.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
