VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/19/14 -- Lincoln Mining Corporation (TSX VENTURE: LMG) ("Lincoln" or the "Company") announces that further to its news release dated October 22, 2013, the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States ("CFIUS") has granted an extension until March 7, 2014 in order for Procon Resources Inc. ("PRI" or "Procon") to complete its proposed transaction to divest its interests in Lincoln (the "Proposed Transaction") and CFIUS does not object to the Proposed Transaction.
Lincoln has been advised that the principal terms of the Proposed Transaction are as set forth below.
PRI intends to comply with the CFIUS divestment order by selling its 46,000,000 common shares of Lincoln to Mr. Ronald K. Netolitzky, a Canadian mining entrepreneur, through a private sale at approximately $0.01127 per share for a total purchase price of $518,420.
In addition, the $2,300,000 convertible debenture held by PRI (plus approximately $165,000 in accrued interest), which will have the conversion right removed, will be repaid and discharged using funds advanced to Lincoln through unsecured, non-convertible loans from companies controlled by two directors of Lincoln (the "Loans"). The Loans will bear interest at a rate of 6% per annum, payable monthly commencing April 1, 2014 for a term of five years. As the directors are insiders of Lincoln, the Loans constitute related party transactions under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The independent directors of Lincoln have confirmed that the Loans are under reasonable commercial terms that are not less advantageous to Lincoln than if similar loans were obtained from an arm's length party and that, accordingly, the Loans are exempt from the shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 pursuant to the exemption contained in section 5.7(1)(f) thereof.
On closing of the Proposed Transaction, the four directors of Lincoln appointed by Procon will resign and Lincoln's Chief Financial Officer will be replaced. Accordingly, on closing of the Proposed Transaction, there will be no more operational or financial ties between Procon and Lincoln. Pursuant to the terms of the CFIUS order (see Lincoln news release dated June 18, 2013), following the divestment, Procon shall not acquire any ownership interest in or control of any of the Company's US subsidiaries or properties and all access restrictions pertaining to Procon, its officers, representatives, agents, and employees shall remain in place.
On closing of the Proposed Transaction, the remaining directors and new audit committee of the Company will be comprised of incumbents Paul Saxton, Andrew Milligan and Ron Coombes. The Company will be actively seeking new independent directors in the ensuing months.
Lincoln is pleased with the progress made by the parties to the Proposed Transaction and appreciates the shareholders' continued commitment to the Company.
Lincoln Mining Corp. is a Canadian precious metals exploration and development company with several projects in various stages of exploration and development which include the Pine Grove and Bell Mountain gold properties in Nevada, the Oro Cruz gold property in California and the La Bufa gold-silver property in Mexico. In the United States, the Company operates under Lincoln Gold US Corp. and Lincoln Resource Group Corp., both Nevada corporations. Until completion of the Proposed Transaction, the Company's United States operations remain subject to the CFIUS order described in the Company's news release dated June 18, 2013.

Manufacturing has widely adopted standardized and automated processes to create designs, build them, and maintain them through their life cycle. However, many modern manufacturing systems go beyond mechanized workflows to introduce empowered workers, flexible collaboration, and rapid iteration. Such behaviors also characterize open source software development and are at the heart of DevOps culture, processes, and tooling.

The last decade was about virtual machines, but the next one is about containers. Containers enable a service to run on any host at any time. Traditional tools are starting to show cracks because they were not designed for this level of application portability. Now is the time to look at new ways to deploy and manage applications at scale. In his session at @DevOpsSummit, Brian “Redbeard” Harrington, a principal architect at CoreOS, will examine how CoreOS helps teams run in production. Attende...

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes. In his session at DevOps Summit, Michael Demmer, VP of Engineering at Jut, will discuss how this can...

The most often asked question post-DevOps introduction is: “How do I get started?” There’s plenty of information on why DevOps is valid and important, but many managers still struggle with simple basics for how to initiate a DevOps program in their business. They struggle with issues related to current organizational inertia, the lack of experience on Continuous Integration/Delivery, understanding where DevOps will affect revenue and budget, etc. In their session at DevOps Summit, JP Morgenthal...
