Pistol Bay Mining Inc.: Rio Tinto Canada Uranium Corporation Commences 2014 Drill Program on the C-5 Uranium property in the Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/08/14 -- Pistol Bay Mining Inc. (TSX VENTURE: PST) ("the Company") is pleased to report that it has received notice from Rio Tinto Canada Uranium Corporation ("RTCUC") that it mobilized a camp crew on January 5th 2014. Drilling is scheduled to commence on or around January 11th 2014.

A total of approximately 2,500m of diamond drilling is proposed for the 2014 C-5 Block winter exploration program with a budget of $1,200,000. The program is designed to test five (5) to six (6) holes within the Corridor A target area as a follow-up to mineralization intersected during the winter 2013 exploration program. Drilling is expected to take approximately six (6) to seven (7) weeks.

Based on the results of previous exploration carried out by RTCUC, the current focus of exploration at the C-5 property are two quartzite units interpreted to be trending north-south within the southern portion of the project area. These units are potentially analogous to those seen at the Phoenix and McArthur River deposits which lay in close proximity to the C-5 project area.

Following 2013 exploration, two priority targets were identified within the southern portion of the C-5 claim block. These areas are east-west trending structural corridors interpreted from geophysical data sets including VTEM and ground gravity survey data which cross cut the N-S trending quartzites of interest.

Terms of Option Agreement

RTCUC has earned an initial 55% interest in the C Blocks (including C-5) property by incurring $1,000,000 in expenditures and making an initial payment of $147,000 to Pistol Bay Mining in January 2012. RTCUC will have the right to increase its interest to 75% on or before December 31, 2014 by incurring an additional $1,000,000 in expenditures. For a period of five years after the exercise of this second option, RTCUC may increase its interest to 100% by paying Pistol Bay $5,000,000, whereupon Pistol Bay shall receive a 5% net profits interest royalty.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
As data explodes in quantity, importance and from new sources, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and cloud environments grow with it.
