VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/24/14 -- Bralorne Gold Mines Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: BPM)(OTCQX: BPMSF)(FRANKFURT: GV7) is pleased to provide the following update on its Bralorne gold project located near the historic mining camp at Gold Bridge, British Columbia.
Development work has focused on stope mining and preparing blocks for mining in the BK-3 zone since last November. Mining has been completed in two blocks in the BK-3 zone and development is underway on third stope. The 2014 plan is to continue to develop and process the BK-3 resource and develop other known resources to support an increased mill throughput.
Mill throughput averaged a record 115 metric tonnes per day for December, representing a 25% increase over the previous peak throughput. December production is presented below along with the totals for 2013 and output to date. "Over the past year the material processed was mostly from pre-production development, which was expected to be lower in grade than material mined from stopes. An increase in ounces recovered is expected in 2014 with the transition to stope mining".
The Company is seeking financing to expand mill throughput and for underground exploration & development. The next milestone will be an increase in mill throughput to 200 tons per day. The Company plans to continue milling as resources are developed and will increase the milling rate if and when sufficient resources are defined and developed. The Company cautions that a feasibility study has not been completed and it is to be determined if operations will be found to be economic. The mill is being operated to generate incidental revenue from the sale of gold dore bars and flotation concentrate to offset development costs.
Quality Assurance/Quality Control
Gold production is reconciled to gold contained in flotation and gravity concentrates. Flotation concentrate assays are performed at ALS Laboratories in North Vancouver, British Columbia, an accredited independent laboratory with quality monitored by internal standards. Check samples are done on composite samples collected by AH Knight and assayed by ALS Laboratories in North Vancouver, British Columbia, and umpire assays are performed by Alex Stuart Limited in Knowsley, England. Gold produced in gravity concentrate is reconciled from settlement assays received from the refiner. Check assays are performed on duplicate samples of gold dore by ALS Laboratories in North Vancouver, BC.

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

CIOs and those charged with running IT Operations are challenged to deliver secure, audited, and reliable compute environments for the applications and data for the business. Behind the scenes these tasks are often accomplished by following onerous time-consuming processes and often the management of these environments and processes will be outsourced to multiple IT service providers. In addition, the division of work is often siloed into traditional "towers" that are not well integrated for cro...

Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business.

This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates. In her session at 18th Cloud Expo, Judith S. Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...
