Bold Ventures Signs Letter of Intent With Northern Superior to Option the Lac Surprise Project in Northern Quebec

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 02/27/14 -- Bold Ventures Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BOL) (the "Company" or "Bold") and Northern Superior Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SUP) (Northern Superior) are pleased to announce the signing of a Letter of Intent whereby Bold will have the option to earn up to a 60% interest in Northern Superior's 100% owned Lac Surprise property.

This large property is located approximately 50 Km south of Chapais and within the historic Chibougamau - Chapais gold camp in west central Quebec and is comprised of 365 claims totaling 20,352 hectares or 50,269 acres.

Bold can earn a 50% working interest in the property by spending an aggregate of $2,000,000 of exploration work on the property and paying to Northern Superior a total of 350,000 common shares of Bold all over a three year period. 50,000 common shares are due on signing. The first year optional commitment is $500,000 in exploration expenditures and 50,000 common shares of Bold. The second year optional commitment is 100,000 common shares of Bold and $500,000 in exploration work. The third year optional commitment calls for $1,000,000 in exploration work on the property and a payment of 150,000 common shares of Bold.

Bold will also hold the option to earn an additional 10% in the project by delivering a positive feasibility study within five years from the date of execution of the formal option agreement. If Bold takes up all parts of the option it will have earned a 60% interest in the property.

Recently, renewed exploration activity in the area has yielded several new gold discoveries made by Toma Gold/Iamgold (at Monster Lake); Vanstar (at Nelligan) and Soquem (at MOP II). All three of these companies have announced plans for major, multimillion dollar drilling programs.

Dr. T. F. Morris, President and CEO of Northern Superior, was quoted in a January 27, 2014 Marketwired news release that "the potential value of the Company's Lac Surprise gold property has only been exemplified by the recent discoveries and exploration activity directly to the east of the Lac Surprise property. Four of the six gold exploration targets are clearly defined by anomalous and robust overburden gold grain and geochemical-in-till anomalies extending down-ice from the Opawica-Guercheville Deformation Zone (OGDZ) representing high priority targets areas. There is excellent potential for the definition of additional targets along the OGDZ structure which extends 11 km across the Lac Surprise property and is largely unexplored."

The OGDZ is associated with several gold occurrences such as Philbert, Meston Lake and Fenton as well as the past producing Joe Mann mine, the Lac Shortt mine and the producing Bachelor Lake mine.

Vanstar Mining Resources Inc. has recently announced the results of three diamond drill holes from its flagship Nelligan project (see Vanstar Resources Inc. news release dated December 18, 2013 at www.vanstarmining.com). This new gold discovery is situated directly east of the Lac Surprise property.

Recent work by Northern Superior has identified a number of high priority, drill ready, gold targets that have been identified by till sampling, geochemical programs as well as airborne and ground geophysical surveys (maps and technical descriptions may be viewed now at www.nsuperior.com).

This option agreement is subject to regulatory approval and a thirty day due diligence period. Upon execution of the formal option agreement a finder's fee will be paid to an arm's length, third party.

Bold Ventures Inc. President and CEO Richard Nemis states: "I believe that this area will increasingly become the focus of intense exploration as a re-emerging gold camp. We are happy to team up with Northern Superior and Tom Morris on such a worthwhile and exciting project."

New maps and descriptions describing this project will be posted on our website at www.boldventuresinc.com in the coming days.

Northern Superior is a reporting issuer in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and Quebec.

Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud?

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud.

You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon.

The material was delivered interac...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
Cloud applications are seeing a deluge of requests to support the exploding advanced analytics market. “Open analytics” is the emerging strategy to deliver that data through an open data access layer, in the cloud, to be directly consumed by external analytics tools and popular programming languages.

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture.
