Blue Horizon Announces It Has Entered Into an Interim Agreement with Cielo Gold Corp.

RED DEER, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/18/13 -- Blue Horizon Industries Inc. ("Blue Horizon" or the "Corporation") (CNSX:BH) announced today that its indirect wholly owned subsidiary Blue Horizon Bio-Diesel Inc ("BH Bio-Diesel") has entered into an Interim Agreement with Cielo Gold Corp ("Cielo") (CNSX: CMC).

BH Bio-Diesel has entered into an Interim Agreement with Cielo Gold Corp ("Cielo") wherein Cielo has agreed to purchase certain assets (the "Assets") and certain liabilities of BH Bio-Diesel for consideration of $4.25 million payable in the form of two convertible debentures (collectively, the "Debentures") issued by Cielo (the "Transaction"). The first debenture (the "First Debenture") will bear interest at an annual rate of 6% and will be in the amount of $2 million, due on the first anniversary of such First Debenture, payable in cash or, at the election of Cielo, in common shares of Cielo at a CDN$0.25 per share price (the "Conversion Price"). The second debenture (the "Second Debenture") will bear interest at an annual rate of 6% and will be in the amount of $2.25 million, due on the second anniversary of such Second Debenture, payable in cash or, at the election of Cielo, in common shares of Cielo at the greater of (A) the 10-day volume weighted average of the trading price of the common shares of Cielo on the date of payment, or (B) CDN$0.25 per share (the greater of (A) or (B) being the "Conversion Price"). BH Bio-Diesel will have the right after the respective due dates of the Debentures to convert the principal and interest payable by Cielo into common shares at the Conversion Price therefor.

Closing of the Transaction is subject to customary closing conditions including the completion of a definitive asset purchase agreement as soon as practicable and the completion of due diligence, execution of closing documentation and applicable regulatory approvals, expected to occur on or about March 29, 2013.

The President and CEO of BH Bio-Diesel, Mr. Don Allan, has agreed to be appointed as CEO of Cielo upon closing of the Transaction, and will also be appointed to the Board of Directors of Cielo at that time. Cielo will then add to its corporate focus on becoming a world class green diesel refinery using waste products to manufacture a renewable grade diesel.

The Assets include a renewable fuel oil demonstration plant that is currently being assembled and is expected to be ready for operation later this month. It is Cielo's goal to complete the upgrades required to produce an ultralow sulphur highway grade diesel to meet Canada's mandate of 2% renewable content in each liter of diesel produced and sold. Cielo hopes to begin commercial production of renewable diesel in 2013, using municipal waste and used oil. This feed stock is readily available and very inexpensive in comparison to the typical bio-diesel feed stocks. Cielo sees the opportunity to help clean up the environment while potentially earning significant higher Return On Investments.

Don Allan, President and CEO of Blue Horizon said "It is a pleasure to have the opportunity to work with Cielo, its current management and Board of Directors. This is a very large step forward in the waste-to-fuel refining technology BH Bio-Diesel has been developing, and proposes to bring a significant benefit to shareholders of the Corporation, as well as the shareholders of Cielo".

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures.

It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities."

Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
