Premium Exploration: Exploration Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/08/13 -- Premium Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:PEM)(OTCQX:PMMEF) is pleased to provide an exploration update for the Idaho Gold Project.

Drill Results

Premium is pleased to report it has received all assays for the test RC drill hole for the planned 8,000 m infill program at the Friday-Petsite Resource. Upon examination of the results, Premium will determine whether to proceed with the RC drill method or return to diamond drill coring to ensure the highest and best QA/QC for the infill program, and will release the results to the public.

Permitting

Premium has embarked on two Environmental Assessments ("EA") to streamline its exploration at its Idaho Gold Project.

"This approach will allow us to consolidate what are currently eight smaller exploration permit applications into two, under which we will be able to conduct a district-wide evaluation of targets," said Premium's President and CEO Del Steiner. "After thoroughly evaluating the options for moving forward and after discussions with the permitting agencies as well as environmental organizations, it's clear the two-EA method is the best regime for proceeding."

One EA is on lands administered by the Bureau of Land Management ("BLM") and the other on the portion administered by the United States Forest Service ("USFS"). Having the EA's conducted by the agencies will allow Premium to more strategically implement its district-wide exploration approach while simultaneously ensuring the Company meets both the high environmental standards required and the company's own commitment to environmental protection and sustainability.

The EAs will provide infrastructure for drill exploration that will allow follow-up on any new or existing discoveries and continue the collection of data for environmental baseline studies throughout the Idaho Gold Project. The scoping for public comment regarding the EA as it pertains to the Plan of Operation for drilling from 57 drill sites on lands administered by the BLM concluded January 25, 2013. Once complete it will be released to the public with the signed Decision Memo.

The majority of the data for the EA on the lands administered by the USFS has been acquired through the EA conducted by the BLM in addition to several of Premium's previous Plans of Operations.

Permitted Drill Sites

Meanwhile, Premium's infill drill program remains unaffected by the aforementioned permitting; previously permitted drill sites on public lands, private property, or any of Premium's patented claims, some of which cover a substantial majority of the mineral resources, remain accessible.

The principal purpose of this process is to conduct exploration on a number of exploration prospects outside of the Friday deposit, for which drilling is not scheduled to commence until the second half of 2013 and is subject to financing, permitting, and market conditions.

About Premium Exploration Inc.

Premium is focused on the exploration and development of its district-sized Orogrande Shear Zone "OSZ" to fulfill its vision of developing a new mining district in North America. The OSZ is a 30 km-plus regionally-significant structure that correlates with multiple known zones of mineralization. This structural control to gold mineralization has characteristics similar to many large gold belts, such as the Carlin Trend of Nevada. Exploration is ongoing at the bulk-tonnage Friday-Petsite deposit, the most advanced of several known mineralized zones located along the OSZ and represents four percent of the OSZ under Premium's control.

Recently, WebRTC has a lot of eyes from market. The use cases of WebRTC are expanding - video chat, online education, online health care etc. Not only for human-to-human communication, but also IoT use cases such as machine to human use cases can be seen recently.

However, the benefit of WebRTC for IoT is not only its convenience and interopera...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, CTO of Embotics, discussed how automation can provide the dynamic management required to cost-effectively deliver microservices and container solutions at scale. He also discussed how flexible automation is the key to effectively bridging and seamlessly coordinating both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds – an increasingly important requirement at today’s multi-cloud enterprise.
Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.

Any startup has to have a clear go –to-market strategy from the beginning. Similarly, any data science project has to have a go to production strategy from its first days, so it could go beyond proof-of-concept. Machine learning and artificial intelligence in production would result in hundreds of training pipelines and machine learning models that are continuously revised by teams of data scientists and seamlessly connected with web applications for tenants and users.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices.

When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
