Pacific Iron Ore Corporation Announces Drilling Results at St. Anthony Site, Intersects up to 15.58 g/t over 1.0 Metre and Change of Directors

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/22/14 -- Pacific Iron Ore Corporation (TSX VENTURE: POC) is pleased to announce the results of recent drilling completed on their Best/Kings Bay and St. Anthony properties in Northwestern Ontario. A total of seven drill holes were completed this past fall, totaling 942 metres.

Five holes were drilled on the St. Anthony Property approximately 500 metres south of the historic Dawson-White shaft, to test the extent of the veining in the area. Each hole drilled tested the mafic volcanic-granodiorite contact, and contained several porphyry and vein intervals, with varying intensities of shearing present across all lithologies. Visible Gold was encountered in three of the five holes with values up to 27.7 g/t over 0.5 meters.

Two holes were also drilled on the Best/Kings Bay Property to test several SP (Self-Polarization) geophysical anomalies. Interstitial pyrrhotite scattered throughout hole AB-01 accounts for the SP anomalies in that area, however, the anomalies that hole AB-02 was designed to test remain unexplained.

Pacific Iron Ore's 8,816 hectare (51 mining claims) St. Anthony property includes the St. Anthony mine - historically the largest gold producing mine in Ontario's Kenora - Patricia Mining Division. The St. Anthony claim group is located along the eastern shore of the north arm of Sturgeon Lake within the Sturgeon Lake Greenstone Belt. The Best/Kings Bay Property is comprised of 752 hectares (3 mining claims and 14 leases) and is contiguous to the St. Anthony Property.

QA/QC Procedures

The rock samples were provided to ALS Chemex, an ISO 9001 and ISO 17025 accredited facility located in Thunder Bay, Ontario, for analysis and processing. The samples taken were analyzed for 51 elements by aqua regia digestion with induction coupled plasma mass spectroscopy (ICP-AES), and for gold by Trace Level fire assay on a 30 g sample with induction coupled plasma mass spectroscopy (ICP-AES) finish. Samples over the detection limit were re-assayed using a gravimetric finish, and samples containing visible gold were sent for pulp metallic analysis, screened to 100 microns with a gravimetric finish. An independent QA-QC protocol was used on the program consisting of a combination of blanks and standards.

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.

Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
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.

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...
