Orex Commences 2014 Field Operations in Sinaloa State, Mexico; Previously Unanalyzed Drill Core at Los Crestones Returns New Mineralized Intercepts

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/15/14 -- Orex Minerals Inc. - (TSX VENTURE: REX) ("Orex"), is pleased to announce that it has compiled all available historical data from the Los Crestones Project 100km north of the Sinaloa state capital, Culiacan, Mexico. Work included analysis of previously sampled but not assayed intervals from diamond drilling by the previous owner. Work has now begun on the 2014 exploration programme which is planned to include surface mapping, sampling and trenching and air/ground geophysics in preparation for a campaign of diamond drilling. Community negotiations are continuing and expected to run in parallel with the exploration work.

Los Crestones Project

The Project was acquired in 2013 by merger with junior explorer Astral Mining Corporation. Astral optioned the property in early 2011 and had completed a 12 month exploration programme culminating in an 18 hole, 2,618m diamond drilling program late in that year. Reported results from the first pass drilling, returned a best intercept of 5m averaging 39.1 g/t Au, 93.3 g/t Ag and 2.13% Cu from 55m depth in HQ drillhole 11LD011. True width of this interval from the Bohemia structure is approximately 3.53m. The project has been maintained but not worked since Astral's drilling programme. During 2013 Orex was active in the area, reinforcing positive relations with local communities and is confident of strong community support in the resumption of work.

The Los Crestones project totals 4,168 hectares and is prospective for economic gold, silver and copper mineralization. The present interpretation of mineralization is that of north-south oriented structural zones hosting quartz veins, quartz stockworks and breccia fill. Three main structural zones were targeted in the first phases of work. Corona, Bohemia and Indio are elongate structures recognized on surface as erosion-resistant silicified ribs or "crestons". In addition several other sub-parallel structures are known on the property and will be further investigated in the coming months. Maximum length on the individual structures to date is 900m. Current geological maps are available at Orex's website here.

Los Crestones is located within the highly prospective Gold-Silver Trend of the Sierra Madre Occidental, Western Mexico. Orex recognizes the favourable structural setting of known showings. During 2014 Orex plans to significantly enhance geological and structural understanding before drilling commences.

2014 Exploration Programme

The updated project database includes previously unreported drilling results. During 2013, Orex commissioned the analysis of drill core samples previously submitted to ALS Chemex but cancelled due to lack of available funds.

Results from this work reveal new significant intercepts from Astral's drilling with a best result of 0.45m grading 45.8 g/t Au, 87 g/t Ag and 2.41% Cu from 32.8m depth in hole 11LD014 (estimated true width 0.35m). This interval upgrades the significance of the hole which was previously reported with a best value of 1m grading 2.65 g/t Au, 1.7g/t Ag and 0.05% Cu from 60m (estimated true width 0.77m). In addition, 1.5m grading 5.79 g/t Au, 3 g/t Ag and 0.01% Cu from 36m depth in the hole 11LD011 was also returned (estimated true width 1.06m), further enhancing the best hole of the original drilling programme. A full breakdown of updated assay results from the 2011 diamond drilling program is supplied on Orex's website here.

According to Orex's President, Gary Cope, "Los Crestones is a prime example of an underexplored, early-stage project located on a highly prospective and proven mineral trend. The project had seen no modern exploration before Astral, and Orex is very excited to have the chance to make a significant discovery here."

Full details of previous sampling and a drilling location map have been prepared for the Orex website, www.orexminerals.com.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and shared the must-have mindsets for removing complexity from the develop...
In his Opening Keynote at 21st Cloud Expo, John Considine, General Manager of IBM Cloud Infrastructure, led attendees through the exciting evolution of the cloud.

The next XaaS is CICDaaS. Why? Because CICD saves developers a huge amount of time. CD is an especially great option for projects that require multiple and frequent contributions to be integrated. But… securing CICD best practices is an emerging, essential, yet little understood practice for DevOps teams and their Cloud Service Providers. The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
"Evatronix provides design services to companies that need to integrate the IoT technology in their products but they don't necessarily have the expertise, knowledge and design team to do so," explained Adam Morawiec, VP of Business Development at Evatronix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...
Widespread fragmentation is stalling the growth of the IIoT and making it difficult for partners to work together. The number of software platforms, apps, hardware and connectivity standards is creating paralysis among businesses that are afraid of being locked into a solution. EdgeX Foundry is unifying the community around a common IoT edge framework and an ecosystem of interoperable components.
"ZeroStack is a startup in Silicon Valley. We're solving a very interesting problem around bringing public cloud convenience with private cloud control for enterprises and mid-size companies," explained Kamesh Pemmaraju, VP of Product Management at ZeroStack, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time. Now that design CAD teams are geographically distributed, centralizing their work is key. With large multi-gigabyte projects, outdated tools have stifled industrial team agility, time-to-market milestones, and impacted P&L stakeholders.
"Akvelon is a software development company and we also provide consultancy services to folks who are looking to scale or accelerate their engineering roadmaps," explained Jeremiah Mothersell, Marketing Manager at Akvelon, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
