Superior Copper Announces Staking of New Claims at the Coppercorp Project

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 03/06/14 -- Superior Copper Corporation ("Superior Copper" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SPC) is pleased to announce that it has staked 22 claims covering 3,973 hectares adjacent to its 100% owned Coppercorp Project in the Mamainse Point area, located approximately 85 kilometres north of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. The addition of the new claim block increases the Company's current land position at its Coppercorp Project to 15,789 hectares or 158 square km. See attached map for reference.

Project Update

Superior Copper plans to focus its exploration efforts on targeting areas with the most potential of a significant new discovery. Models being considered include Iron-Oxide-Copper-Gold ("IOCG") type deposits in the Proterozoic Keewenawan Supergroup and ultramafic hosted Nickel-Copper-Platinum Group Element types in the adjacent Archean.

The IOCG model will be targeted due to similar mineralogical, geological, tectonic, alteration and geophysical characteristics found in the IOCG family type deposits similar to the large deposits in southeast Australia (Olympic Dam, Ernest Henry, Prominent Hill) and the Carajas District in Brazil. Of significance at the Coppercorp Project is a large 5 x 5 km regional magnetic high with coincident gravity anomalies. This same geophysical correlation has led to many of the discoveries of IOCG-type deposits around the world. Mamainse Point has been identified as prospective for IOCG-type deposits by previous companies (Falconbridge Ltd./Intrepid Minerals Corp.), however drilling to date has been minimal and shallow, 2 holes less than 225 meters vertical each and no drilling has explained the magnetic or gravity highs.

The Olympic Dam deposit, which has hosted 9 billion tonnes of 1.6% copper, 0.6 kilograms per tonne uranium-oxide, 0.6 g/t gold, and 6 g/t silver was discovered 335 m below flat lying sediments after targeting a coincident magnetic-gravity high anomaly. Superior Copper has commissioned Geotech Ltd. to fly an airborne ZTEM survey in March 2014, which will aid in targeting these deeper-seated IOCG-type deposits.

The ultramafic intrusion hosted Nickel-Copper-Platinum Group Element model is based on deposits found around the edges of Lake Superior Mid Continental Rift. Model types include the Eagle Mine in Michigan (5.3 million tonnes ("mT") 3.1% nickel and 2.5% copper), the Tamarack discovery in Minnesota (9 mT of 1% nickel and 0.7% copper, the Marathon Coldwell Complex in Ontario (91 mT with 2.4 million ounces ("oz") palladium, 696,000 oz platinum, 251,000 oz gold, 497 million pounds copper and 4.2 million oz silver) and more recently the PGE discovery by Transition Metals Corp. at their Sunday Lake Project north of Thunder Bay.

Typically these deposits are characterized by circular magnetic highs that may represent pipe-like conduits that host mineralized magma deposited during intracontinental rifting events. A number of these similar magnetic features have been identified on the Superior Copper claim group from historical geophysical data but have failed to be recognized as a potential target by previous companies.

"The project now covers the majority of prospective geology at Mamainse Point, Ontario giving Superior Copper control over this exciting exploration play. Our geologists are working diligently on targeting two deposit model-types, both of which have the potential to result in a significant new discovery," said President and CEO John Tait.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight.

He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation.

This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically.
