Belvedere Resources Limited: Disclosure Clarification

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/08/13 -- Belvedere Resources Limited (TSX VENTURE:BEL) ("The Company") announces as a result of a review by the British Columbia Securities Commission (BCSC), we are issuing the following news release to clarify our disclosure.

The issues identified by the BCSC involve the 2012 progress report and the September 2012 Corporate Presentation titled Investor Update and the Company website as detailed below. The Company retracts this presentation in its entirety and an updated presentation has been placed on the Company website. The Company retracts the 2012 progress report and has removed it from the Company website. The Company has clarified its disclaimer on the website in accordance with the issues identified below. The Company takes these issues very seriously and new systems have been put in place to make sure that the Company's current and future disclosure complies fully with NI 43-101.

Technical Disclosure Issues

1. Non-Compliant Disclosure of Mineral Resources

In its corporate presentation of September 2012, and on the Company's 2012 progress report which were available on the Company website, a number of issues were identified with the way in which the Company reported mineral resources that are contrary to NI 43-101:

a) Inferred mineral resources were added to other categories of resources.

b) The Company failed to disclose each category of mineral resources or mineral reserves separately.

c) The Company disclosed resources solely in the form of metal content.

The summary resources table which detailed the categories, tonnages and grades of the mineral resources for each project was inadvertently missing from the end of the September 2012 corporate presentation.

2. Restricted Disclosure

In both the corporate presentation of September 2012 and the 2012 progress report, the Company had added historical estimates to its current mineral resources, giving the impression that it was treating them as current resources. Subsequent to the dates of these reports, an NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate was announced for the Kopsa Au-Cu project (News Release, 29th October, 2012). The remaining historical resources are such a minor component of the Company's resource base that all references to historical resources have now been removed from the Company's disclosures. Consequently, the misleading historical figures have now been replaced or removed, and all Company disclosures (website, presentations etc) have been checked and replaced with the updated figures compliant with the requirements of NI 43-101.

3. Qualified Person

On its website, 2012 progress report and corporate presentation, the Company failed to properly identify, and disclose the relationship to Company, of the qualified person who approved, prepared or supervised the preparation of the technical information. The Company has now added the relationship of the Qualified Person to the Company and states that the qualified person prepared and approved the technical information contained within the relevant website and other disclosures.

For purposes of clarity, the Company retracts all previous references to its gold resources from the aforementioned disclosures, and replaces them with the following summary resources table, detailing the categories, tonnages and grades of the mineral resources listed above, as well as the titles and dates of the relevant supporting Technical Reports.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels.

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 cl...
All clouds are not equal.

DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening.

Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist.
