DNA Precious Metals Answers Comments for Certificate of Authorization Amendment from Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment, Wildlife and Parks

MONTREAL, Quebec, February 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --


DNA Precious Metals Inc. ("DNA" or "the Company") (OTCQB: DNAP) is pleased to announce that it has answered all comments to date from the Quebec Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment, Wildlife and Parks pertaining to an application for an amendment to a certificate of authorization  to operate a milling facility. The amendment request to the existing certificate of authorization is to include an additional extraction process methodology.

In September of 2012, DNA was issued a certificate of authorization from the Quebec Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment, Wildlife and Parks authorizing the Company to process mining residues by gravity separation methodology.  The amendment request filed in the Summer of 2013 includes the processing of the mining residues through a Merrill Crowe cyanide closed circuit system.

Extensive laboratory testing work on an extraction process for the mining residues on the Montauban Mine Property demonstrated that a combination of gravity separation and closed circuit cyanization was the most effective process for the successful recovery of the precious metals.  The combined extraction methodology increased the recovery percentages of gold and silver in the mining residues.  With the implementation of the combined extraction methodology process, DNA may recover up to 92% of the gold and 77% of the silver from the mining residues on the Montauban Mine Property.

The amendment request to the certificate of authorization deposited with the Quebec Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment, Wildlife and Parks targets the processing of the mining residues identified as Anacon 1 covering an area of approximately 7 hectares on the Montauban Mine Property located in the Montauban and Chavigny townships near Grondines-West in the Portneuf County, Quebec, Canada.  DNA Precious Metals Inc. presently has mining rights on the Montauban Mine Property covering an area of approximately 420 hectares.

If, as and when issued, the remittance of the amendment to the certificate of authorization permit from the Quebec Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment, Wildlife and Parks will take DNA Precious Metals Inc. one step closer to processing the Anacon 1 mining residues, on which a National Instrument 43-101 resource estimate published by Yves Gagnon Engineer, Geologist indicated a measured resource of approximately 428 252 tons.

Ronald Mann, President and CEO stated; "If as and when issued, the amended Certificate of Authorization permit is another milestone for DNA Precious Metals Inc. in the march to production. Our investment and collaboration with the Quebec Government will facilitate that our project is on track, subject to production financing, to meet its target of having the mine fully commissioned by the summer of 2014.  I would like to send my deepest appreciation to the Quebec Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment, Wildlife and Parks and to everyone on our team and who have all worked so hard in achieving our objectives."

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.
The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. 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. 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...
