The PEA was prepared by Mine Development Associates in accordance with the definitions in Canadian National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101"). The PEA is considered preliminary in nature. It includes Inferred mineral resources that are considered too speculative to have the economic considerations applied that would enable classification as mineral reserves. There is no certainty that the conclusions within the PEA will be realised. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.

The technical information contained in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Red Eagle Mining's Vice President of Exploration, Jeff Toohey, P.Eng., who is a Qualified Person as defined under NI 43-101.

As the rapid adoption of containers continues, companies are finding that they lack the operational tools to understand the behavior of applications deployed in these containers, and how to identify issues in their application infrastructure.

In the case of an application outage, what was the root cause of the outage?

Much of the value of DevOps comes from a (renewed) focus on measurement, sharing, and continuous feedback loops.
