ROUYN-NORANDA, CANADA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/17/14 -- Explor Resources Inc. ("Explor or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:EXS)(OTCQX:EXSFD)(FRANKFURT:E1H1)(BERLIN:E1H1) is pleased to announce the results of the East Bay Property exploration program. The analysis of previous exploration by Cambior and others has revealed several interesting targets. The exploration program consisted of a preliminary 1500 meter drill program.
This program is in line with the Corporation's strategy of conducting exploration along the Porcupine Destor Fault Zone (PDFZ), where several notable gold deposits have been found in the past, including the Timmins mining camp which produced more than 65 million oz of gold. The Corporation now owns 3,203.71 ha of land along this section of the PDFZ, as shown on the attached plan. Explor's East Bay property is contiguous and wraps around the western portion of the Clifton Star's Duparquet property as shown on the attached plan. The East Bay property is approximately 0.5 km west of the former Consolidated Beattie and Donchester Gold Mines, which has produced over 1.0 million oz of gold between 1933 and 1956. Clifton Star has recently announced (Press Release dated June 28, 2013) significant open pit and underground resource on their property.
The East Bay Gold Property is located to the west of the Consolidated Beattie and Donchester Gold Property and contiguous to the ground on which Clifton Star Resources Inc. continues to intersect wide width of gold mineralization (Press Releases dated June 19 and June 6, 2013).
Drilling was aimed at two targets along the prolific fault zone, respectively in Duparquet and Hebecourt Townships, consisted of 5 drill holes aggregating 1,224.0 metres.
Beattie West Target Area (Duparquet Twp) consisted of a 1988 drill hole which had cored sheared-altered rocks hosting a 0.93 metre-long quartz-rich interval grading 6.4 g/t Au.
The four holes drilled in 2013 on this target (EXS-13-01 to EXS-13-04) were laid out according to the follow-up drill program proposed in 1988, through a tighter spacing. With an aggregate total of 879 metres, all four drill holes encountered a sequence of highly sheared and altered felsic tuffs and quartz porphyries, with subordinate felsic and mafic volcanics and ultramafics.
Quartz flooding occurs through each drill hole; with fine pyrite reaching 1% locally in the first three holes and 1-3% locally in the fourth hole, the deepest of the drill program.
Weak gold mineralization was cored in drill hole EXS-13-01, which returned 356 ppb over 1.5 m and in EXS-13-02 which returned 575 ppb over 1.5 m, in a 4.5 metre-long interval grading 301 ppb. Because of folding, core angle measurements on the tectonic fabric are quite variable throughout the drill sections, but dips are commonly at 20-30 degrees, indicating southwestward dip.
Stronger gold mineralization was cored in drill hole EXS-13-04, which returned 1.68 g/t Au over a 2.0 interval. The host rock is rhyolite-looking, weakly pyritized (1-3% pyrite) and wedged between strongly sheared to mylonitic quartz-floored felsic tuffs and ultramafics.
The Wettring target Area (Hebecourt Twp) consisted of a cluster of 5 drill holes completed in 1945, in which numerous metre-long quartz-bearing intersections returned 1.0 to 4.0 g/t Au. Quartz veining was reported to be associated with a WNW- trending shear, a possible low-angle splay fault off the east-west Destor Porcupine fault zone to the south. The program proposed in 2013 consisted of locating and testing the proposed WNW-trending gold-bearing splay fault.
The 345.0 meter-long drill hole (EXS-13-05) completed on this target returned very encouraging results at depth and near the end of the hole, including two narrow gold-bearing intersections similar to those reported in 1945 and a very long intersection of anomalous gold mineralization.
The two narrow intersections consist of 2.61 g/t Au over 1.2 m in strong silicified, quartz-dolomite (ankerite) tourmaline flooded, strongly sheared felsic tuffs; and 2.0 g/t Au over 2.0 m intermittently quartz-dolomite (ankerite) flooded strongly sheared quartz porphyry marked by strong sericite alteration and 1-10% fine disseminated pyrite.
The long interval of anomalous gold mineralization was cored over 19.5 m (64ft), returning assays ranging 122 to 809 ppb (0.12 to 0.81 g/t). This interval included 12.0 m (39.3 ft) grading 540 ppb (0.54 g/t) Au, which in turn included a 7.5 m (24.6 ft) interval in which gold assays range 515 to 809 ppb (0.51 to 0.81 g/t), averaging 692 ppb (0.69 g/t).
This thick anomalous zone is hosted by strongly sheared and sericitic quartz porphyry, marked by 10-40% quartz-dolomite (ankerite) flooding with fuchsite and locally, tourmaline and epidote; fine disseminated pyrite occurring in traces to 1-2% locally. Core angle measurements on the tectonic fabric indicate a vertical to very steep southern dip.
All casings were left in place and capped. Based on the presence of geochemically anomalous gold down to the end of drill hole EXS-13-05, deeping on this hole will be required in the future.
Altogether, 672 cores samples were collected and submitted for analysis for gold during this program.
Assays were conducted on NQ sized half core sections. The diamond drill core was logged and sampled following general industry practices whereby logged and sample marked core is sawn in half, with one-half bagged and tagged for shipment to the assay laboratory and the remaining half of the sawn core returned to the core box for storage and future reference. Blanks and assay standards are inserted at regular intervals in each sample batch. Assays are conducted using a standard fire assay technique on a 30 gram sample with a gravimetric finish by Laboratoire Expert Inc., of Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec. Routine duplicates are completed by Laboratoire Expert inc. Pulps and rejects are returned and stored in secure containers. Intersections are reported using drilled widths unless specified otherwise, with assay values.
Geological Context & Mineralization
The mineralization on the East Bay gold property is similar to the Beattie Island within Duparquet Lake and is hosted within the Destor Theolitic Unit of the Blake River Group. Mineralization is associated with interflow volcanic sediments between andesite flows and dioritic sills. The alteration consists of silicification, carbonization and considerable sulphide enrichment.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.
