CuOro Exploration Work Programs Established for 2014

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/10/14 -- CuOro Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:CUA)(FRANKFURT:6BC) ("CuOro" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has successfully filed applications for new concession contracts in the copper-prospective Pelaya municipality of Cesar, Colombia. The applications were filed with the National Mining Agency of Colombia in July, 2013. According to the National Mining Agency, CuOro is the "first-in" applicant for the areas that comprise the Pelaya Project and the applications are now under legal and technical review. CuOro expects these concessions to be granted in Q1 or Q2 2014.

The Pelaya Copper Project is comprised of two contiguous applications for concession contracts in the Cesar Department of the Republic of Colombia, 200 km south of Valledupar, Cesar. The application areas total 3,309.1 ha. The Pelaya Copper Project is situated close to National Highway 45 (Ruta del Sol) and easily accessed by secondary roads. Several large-scale coal mining operations are currently in production in the Cesar and La Guajira departments proximal to the Project area.

To date, CuOro has completed several reconnaissance visits and a widely-spaced soil geochemical sampling grid at the Pelaya Project. This work has defined a Cu in soil anomaly with a strike length of approximately 800 m (Singarare anomaly). Exploration work has also defined several Cu in soil anomalies (Boloazul anomaly) over 4 km to the north of the Singarare anomaly. Regional geologic context and field evidence indicates the Pelaya area has potential to host a clastic-hosted (sandstone-redox and Revett-type) redbed and reduced (Kupferschiefer and Nonesuch) redbed copper deposits, as well as potential for volcanic hosted redbed copper. The occurrences discovered during Cuoro's work to date are of the latter type.

The Company is well funded to implement an aggressive exploration program to test the propsectivity of the property. The work program recommended includes mapping and sampling. The Company has budgeted $1,500,000 for the 2014 work program at Pelaya.

In addition to the work planned for Pelaya the Company has a prospect generation work program ongoing in Colombia The generative work program has to date identified a number of opportunities for acquisition and the Company is advancing its due diligence on the targets identified. The Company is planning to expand its generative efforts on other opportunities in Colombia.

An overall exploration budget of up to $2,500,000 is anticipated for 2014.

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
There are many considerations when moving applications from on-premise to cloud. It is critical to understand the benefits and also challenges of this migration. A successful migration will result in lower Total Cost of Ownership, yet offer the same or higher level of robustness. Migration to cloud shifts computing resources from your data center, which can yield significant advantages provided that the cloud vendor an offer enterprise-grade quality for your application.
