Tarsis Reports Drill Results From Erika Gold Project, Mexico

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/12/14 -- Tarsis Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:TCC) ("Tarsis" and "the Company") has received a report detailing work carried out at the Erika property by the optionee who recently returned the project. During the work program, the optionee discovered a new and previously unknown zone of skarn alteration characterized by moderate hornfelsing in rocks of the Mezcala sedimentary sequence.

The following work was carried out and paid for by the optionee during 2013:

--  Reverse circulation (RC) drilling (1,713 meters in 7 holes). 
--  Diamond drilling (402 meters in 1 hole). 
--  Drilling targeted three different styles of mineralization at four
    separate locations on the property. 
--  Mapping at 1:10,000 scale over the entire property. 
--  Collection of 251 rock chip samples, 289 soil samples and 18 stream
    sediment samples for geochemical analysis.

Of the eight drill holes completed, three targeted skarn mineralization, three targeted Carlin style gold mineralization and two were directed at two separate high-sulphidation epithermal targets.

Carlin Style Target

Three holes were drilled at El Rincon between 150 m and 400 m east of drilling carried out by Tarsis in 2011. Only one of the three holes reached the intended target at the contact between the Morelos limestone and the Mezcala sediments where gold in decarbonatized Mezcala was previously encountered. Hole EK-RC-02 returned 0.12 g/t gold over 2.0 m from 264 m accompanied by elevated arsenic and mercury values. This intersection is located approximately 200 m east of ER-11-14 in a direction believed to be increasingly distal to the feeder structures sourcing the gold mineralization identified in 2011. The other two RC holes targeting Carlin mineralization were terminated prematurely due to drilling difficulties.

Skarn Target

Data analysis, sampling and prospecting carried out by the optionee identified a zone of hornfelsing at La Onza. Drilling of three holes at the La Onza prospect encountered Mezcala sediments and minor volcanics but none of the three holes intersected the Morelos limestone which is believed to be the most prospective host for skarn style gold mineralization. One hole intersected a diorite intrusion at depth, however the hole passed through the intrusion and ended in Mezcala. Elsewhere in the district, significant skarn gold deposits occur in Morelos limestone near the contact with intrusive rocks. Examples of this model are the nearby Los Filos mine owned and operated by Goldcorp Inc. and Torex Gold Inc.'s Morelos gold project.

Epithermal Style Targets

Two holes were directed at high-sulphidation style epithermal targets at two separate locations, Tierra Colorada and Cieneguita, located 3.5 km apart in the western part of the property. While no gold values were detected, moderately anomalous mercury values were returned from Hole EK-RC-03 at Cieneguita to a depth of 270 m.

The Company is currently analysing the report and data provided by the optionee to determine the next steps for the Erika project.

The Erika project is located in the Guerrero Gold Belt and covers approximately 16,000 hectares, located in Guerrero State, Mexico. The property is accessed by paved road via Federal Highway 95, which crosses the eastern boundary of the claims. Acapulco is 150 km south and Iguala is 47 km north of Erika.

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...

Today traditional IT approaches leverage well-architected compute/networking domains to control what applications can access what data, and how. DevOps includes rapid application development/deployment leveraging concepts like containerization, third-party sourced applications and databases. Such applications need access to production data for its test and iteration cycles. Data Security? That sounds like a roadblock to DevOps vs. protecting the crown jewels to those in IT.
