VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/27/14 -- Alto Ventures Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: ATV) is pleased to announce the Company has entered into an Option Agreement to acquire a 60% interest in four mining claims (the "GEFA Option") immediately adjacent to the southeast of North Arrow Minerals Pikoo diamond discovery in northern Saskatchewan. Alto's land holdings now total approximately 85,000 hectares through claim staking and the purchase/option of claims with favourable geology for diamonds (see Alto's news releases dated December 31, 2013 and January 22, 2014).
Rick Mazur, CEO and Director of Alto Ventures stated, "Initial sample results from Pikoo show a favourable size distribution and high diamond counts, including strong potential for commercial size diamonds. The quality of stones as shown on North Arrow's website suggests that this is a discovery of significance that opens up the northern Saskatchewan Craton as a new diamond district in Canada. We plan to aggressively explore our newly acquired, strategically located properties in this emerging diamond camp."
The four GEFA claims totaling 13,150 hectares are located approximately 160 km east of the Town of La Ronge, Saskatchewan and are contiguous to the Pikoo property within 10 km from the PK150 kimberlite. These claims occur along major regional structural trends that could be related to the emplacement of diamondiferous kimberlites in the northern Saskatchewan Craton, as interpreted by Alto's diamond consultant. The diamond potential of the northern Saskatchewan Craton in this area has been confirmed by North Arrow Minerals Inc. with the discovery in 2013 of several kimberlites that have returned high counts of diamonds exceeding 0.85 mm in size (see North Arrow Minerals news release dated November 5, 2013).
Under the terms of the GEFA Option Agreement, Alto can earn a 60% interest in the four claims by making staged cash payments to the vendors of $5,000 on signing (paid), $20,000 after year one and $35,000 after year two totaling $60,000 and completing $250,000 in exploration within one year and a further $500,000 within the following 18 months totaling $750,000 in exploration expenditures on the property over 30 months.

As the world moves toward more DevOps and Microservices, application deployment to the cloud ought to become a lot simpler. The Microservices architecture, which is the basis of many new age distributed systems such as OpenStack, NetFlix and so on, is at the heart of Cloud Foundry - a complete developer-oriented Platform as a Service (PaaS) that is IaaS agnostic and supports vCloud, OpenStack and AWS. Serverless computing is revolutionizing computing. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Raghav...

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, wil...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

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? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
