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.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud?

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...
