Reunion Gold Initiates Scoping Study for Production of Silico-Manganese Alloy

LONGUEUIL, CANADA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/20/14 -- Reunion Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE: RGD) ("Reunion or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has recently retained Worley Parsons to conduct a scoping-level study to assess the parameters relating to the possible development of a silico-manganese plant that would be located in Trinidad and Tobago. G Mining Services Ltd. has also been retained to combine the results of the Worley Parsons' scoping study with the results of the July 2013 pre-feasibility study related to the production of manganese concentrate from the Matthews Ridge Project located in northwest Guyana, South America.

As previously announced, the Company has signed a memorandum of understanding with National Energy Corporation of Trinidad and Tobago Ltd. setting out the terms under which the parties will collaborate to evaluate the potential development by Reunion of a silico-manganese plant in Trinidad and Tobago. In addition to its proximity to Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago offers numerous benefits including competitive power costs, deep sea port facilities, dedicated areas for industrial projects and proximity to silico-manganese markets.

The Company anticipates releasing the results of a preliminary economic assessment of the combined studies, including various output scenarios, by the end of Q1 2014.

In July 2013, the Company announced a proven and probable reserve estimate of 26.3 million tonnes of manganese with an average grade of 14.2% Mn. Manganese is the fourth largest metal consumed in the world, behind iron, aluminum and copper. It is a key component in steel and iron production.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video.
