BacTech Signs MOU with Hudbay

TORONTO, CANADA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/12/13 -- BacTech Environmental Corporation ("BacTech" or the "Company"), (CNSX:BAC)(OTC:BCCEF)(WKN:A1H4TY) today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, BacTech Manitoba Corp. ("BMC"), has signed a Memorandum of Understanding ("MOU") with Hudbay for the Anderson Lake tailings site located in Snow Lake, Manitoba. Anderson Lake hosts tailings from ten past-producing mines in the Snow Lake area. Pursuant to the MOU, BacTech will conduct a drilling program to obtain samples from the Anderson Lake tailings.

Both Hudbay and BacTech are interested in evaluating the amount of precious metals contained in the tailings. More specifically, both parties would like to ascertain the ratio of oxide gold ounces to sulphide ounces (commonly known as refractory) in the Anderson Tailings. BacTech is interested in the identification of sulphide ounces as possible feed for the Company's bioleach plant to be built in Snow Lake.

BacTech, at its expense, will conduct the drilling program and, if the results prove to be of merit, BacTech will conduct an internal economic study to determine if the project is viable.

Hudbay has over 60 years of mining and metal production in the Snow Lake area. The Snow Lake-Flin Flon "Greenstone Belt" of Manitoba and Saskatchewan is one of the most prospective areas in the world for volcanogenic massive sulphide ("VMS") polymetallic deposits. It is also the largest paleoproterozoic VMS district in the world (Symes et al, 1999) and the richest Greenstone Belt in Canada per square kilometre (Franklin, 1995). BacTech continues to investigate other opportunities in the Greenstone Belt that have potential to be additional feeds for the proposed Snow Lake bioleach plant.

BacTech profile

BacTech Environmental Corporation holds the perpetual, exclusive, royalty-free rights to use the patented BACOX bioleaching technology for the reclamation of tailings and mining waste materials. In December 2011, BacTech signed a contract with the Mines Branch of the Manitoba Department of Innovation, Energy and Mines to remediate an Arsenopyrite Residue Stockpile ("ARS") situated at the Snow Lake Mine in Snow Lake, Manitoba, to eliminate further leaching of arsenic generated within the ARS into the surrounding watershed. The Company continues to field enquiries globally with respect to additional opportunities for remediation.

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems.

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent.
