CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/04/14 -- West High Yield (W.H.Y.) Resources Ltd. ("West High Yield" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: WHY) announces that SRK Consulting (U.S.), Inc. of Lakewood, Colorado ("SRK") has completed a Project Review (Gap Analysis) Report for the Company which has been filed on the Company's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com and is also available on the Company's website www.whyresources.com.

SRK Independent Project Review Gap Analysis

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 www.sedar.com and is also available on the Company's website at www.whyresources.com.

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.

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 know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love.
