Victory Mountain Acquires Alberta Frac Sand Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/14/14 -- Victory Mountain Ventures Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:VMV) ("Victory") announces that it has entered into an option agreement (the "Agreement"), subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange, whereby it may earn a 100% interest in 8 Metallic and Industrial Minerals Permits totalling approximately 737 square kilometres (73,728 hectares; the "Property"), which is located west of Fort McKay, in the prolific Fort McMurray area of northeastern Alberta. Frac sand is actively being sought out and mined in Alberta to meet growing demand, with particular interest in abundant silica sand associated with the Paddy and time equivalent Pelican formations in Northern Alberta. The Pelican Formation is known to crop out or underlie the Property as identified in preliminary work.

The property is served by a network of all-weather roads serving the oil and gas industry. Approximately 95 km of all-weather roads link the property to Fort McMurray and an active rail line. Preliminary review of extensive oil and gas well drilling in the Property area has outlined Pelican sand thicknesses of up to 50 plus metres, which will be the focus of exploration. The sand is near to and in some areas exposed at surface, which will facilitate affordable exploration costs and upcoming operational logistics.

Consulting Geologist Mike Dufresne commented, "Future evaluation of the frac sand potential of the Property is warranted given: the proximity of several Steam-Assisted Gravity Drainage operations in the Property area; the developing infrastructure associated with oil sands growth adjacent to and on the Property; and an increasing number of tight oil and gas plays in Alberta and neighboring provinces/territories."

Director Patrick Morris commented, "The shale gas industry in Western Canada is in its infancy. We are very pleased to take the first step towards becoming one of the first TSX-V listed companies to become suppliers of frac sand in Canada. Currently 90 percent of frac sand used in the Canadian oil and gas industry (approximately 3.5 million tons per year) comes from the Midwestern United States. We believe there is a strong economic future in this sector, and therefore for our shareholders in producing a domestic supply in Canada."

"Frac sand" is high-purity quartz silica sand with very durable round grains. It is a crush-resistant material produced for the petroleum industry. It is used in the hydraulic fracturing process known as "fracking" to aid in the flow of oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids. Frac sand is also referred to as a "Proppant" because it props the fractures open to allow easier flow of oil and gas.

Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, Victory will pay a cumulative amount of $40,000 cash, issue 2,500,000 common shares and incur a minimum of Exploration Expenditures of $350,000 over a two year period. The Property will also be subject to a 1% gross overriding royalty. Finder's fees, as allowed pursuant to the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange, may be payable in connection with this acquisition.

Victory Mountain Ventures Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:VMV) is a Junior Exploration Company based in Western Canada. The Company has interests in Frac Sand, Copper, Gold, Silver, Molybdenum and other base metals in Canada.

When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the ste...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
Machine learning provides predictive models which a business can apply in countless ways to better understand its customers and operations.
