COEUR D'ALENE, IDAHO -- (Marketwired) -- 02/08/14 -- Timberline Resources Corporation (NYSE MKT: TLR)(TSX VENTURE: TBR) ("Timberline" or the "Company") announced today that it has received notice from the NYSE MKT LLC (the "Exchange") that the Company is not in compliance with one of the Exchange's continued listing standards as set forth in Part 10 of the NYSE MKT Company Guide (the "Company Guide"). Specifically, the Company is not in compliance with Section 1003(a)(iv) of that Company Guide in that it has sustained losses which are substantial in relation to its overall operations or its existing financial resources, or its financial condition has become impaired such that it appears questionable, in the opinion of the Exchange, as to whether the Company will be able to continue operations and/or meet its obligations as they mature.
In order to maintain its listing on the Exchange, the Exchange has requested that the Company submit a plan of compliance (the "Plan") by February 20, 2014 addressing how it intends to regain compliance with Section 1003(a)(iv) of the Company Guide by March 31, 2014.
Timberline's management has been working to increase its working capital and minimize expenditures by forgoing salaries, minimizing discretionary exploration expenditures and reducing other expenses. Most recently, the Company had relied on anticipated funding through purchases of shares of its common stock by RockStar Resources ("RockStar") pursuant to the Exclusivity Fee specified in the No-Shop/Exclusivity clause of the Confidentiality Agreement entered into by and between the Company and RockStar in December 2013 (see press release dated December 5, 2013). However, as previously announced on February 6, 2014, the Company has not received any funds from RockStar from the funding commitments for December 31, 2013 and January 31, 2014. The resulting cash deficiency is a major factor considered by the Exchange prior to its issuance of the notice of non-compliance.
Timberline's management is pursuing a number of potential transactions to address the Company's financial requirements. The Company intends to submit a Plan in the prescribed form to the Exchange prior to the due date that management anticipates will address the concerns of the Exchange and regain compliance with the Exchange's continued listing standards. If the Plan is not accepted by the Exchange, then the Company will be subject to the Exchange's delisting procedures.
The Company recognizes the need to engage in financing transactions to continue as a going concern given its current cash balance and anticipated, upcoming operating expenses. Such financing activities may include equity financings, asset sales, strategic alliances, or other arrangements, in order to execute its operating plans and exploration programs. The Company may not be able to obtain necessary financing in sufficient amounts to meet its ongoing obligations or on acceptable terms, if at all, however, Company management believes that through its best efforts it will complete a Plan and one or more transactions that will bring the Company into compliance with NYSE MKT guidelines.
Unexpected regulatory delays in permitting have resulted in deferred receipts of cash flow from the Company's Butte Highlands project, however the permitting process is advancing as the Montana Department of Environmental Quality works to finalize preparation of a Final Environmental Impact Statement as the remaining milestone toward issuance of the final Hard Rock Operating Permit.

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...

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...
