On June 4, 2013, the Company released the results of a Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") on its 100% owned Record Ridge Project (the "Record Ridge Property"). The Record Ridge Property is an intermediate advanced exploration stage magnesium ("Mg") project located in southern British Columbia, Canada. The PEA was prepared by SRK and was filed on the Company's SEDAR profile at and is also available on the Company's website at

The PEA presumes a conventional open pit mine, a novel hydrometallurgical processing plant, a calcined magnesia intermediate product plant along with a fused magnesia production plant with pre-tax Net Present Value ("NPV") using a 5% discount rate of US$1.339 billion and Internal Rate of Return ("IRR") of 21% and a post-tax NPV of US$830 million using a 5% discount and post-tax IRR of 17% .

As noted, SRK prepared a Project Review Gap Analysis in respect of the Company's Record Ridge Project. SRK reviewed the available documentation and information pertaining to the Record Ridge Project and commented on its sufficiency for use in a Prefeasibility Study ("PFS"). SRK conducted a desktop review of the minimum reporting requirements for a PFS and assessed gaps which should be addressed prior to or over the course of the study. SRK provided the following as a result of this review:

--  A list of those gaps in the Company's currently available data and
    information which should be addressed in a PFS. 
--   General recommendations for how those gaps can be remedied. 
--  A conceptual budget and schedule for completion of a PFS based on
    assumptions that the gaps can be addressed either prior to or as a part
    of the PFS.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds.

I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
