Declan Resources Inc. and Lakeland Resources Inc. Plan Further Exploration at Gibbon's Creek Uranium Property, Athabasca Basin; Drill Permits Received

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/18/14 -- Declan Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:LAN)(FRANKFURT:DCR) ("Declan" or the "Company") and its Joint Venture ("JV") partner Lakeland Resources Inc. ("Lakeland") (TSX VENTURE:LK)(FRANKFURT:6LL) are pleased to announce the winter and spring exploration plans for the Gibbon's Creek Uranium Property (the "Property"), which is located along the northern margin of the Athabasca Basin in Saskatchewan, Canada.

The JV partners are planning to mobilize a field crew to confirm the historic electromagnetic (EM) geophysics over the Property by conducting a modern Moving Loop Time Domain Electromagnetic ground survey within the next 1-2 weeks in advance of an anticipated 2,500 metre, phase one, drill campaign. The drill campaign is anticipated to consist of up to 15 drill holes and will start as soon as practical after seasonal break-up conditions. All of the current targets are located on dry land that can be easily accessed in winter and summer. Lakeland is in receipt of permits that allow the JV to drill up to 52 drill holes on the Property.

As announced in the January 8th, 2014 news release Lakeland developed several drill targets at Gibbon's Creek based on fall, 2013 exploration including a land-based RadonEX(TM) survey, a boulder prospecting survey and a DC-Resistivity survey.

This exploration resulted in the discovery of highly significant radon values, the confirmation of high-grade boulders of up to 4.28% U3O8 and the definition of an east-west resistivity low, interpreted as an alteration corridor.

The Gibbon's Creek Property is comprised of five contiguous claims totaling 12,771 hectares, located less than 3 kilometers from the settlement of Stony Rapids. The Property is adjacent to the Black Lake Project, held jointly by Uracan Resources Ltd. and UEX Corp. The Property benefits from nearby infrastructure, with power lines and highways transecting the claims. The depth to the unconformity at Gibbon's Creek is known to be shallow (ie. approx. 50 to 250 metres) increasing the economics of exploration. The Property also benefits from a significant database of historic exploration information from work completed by UEX Corp. as well as Eldorado Nuclear (one of the two predecessors to what is now Cameco).

Declan has the option to acquire up to a 70% interest in the Property by incurring $6,500,000 of staged exploration expenditures, paying $1,500,000 in cash and making share payments totaling 11,000,000 shares to Lakeland over a 4 year period. Lakeland will retain a 2% Royalty on Commencement of Commercial Production; 1% of which can be purchased by Declan for C$1 million. After Declan has earned its 70% interest, Lakeland's 30% interest in the Property will be carried until Declan completes an initial NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate for the Property.

2014 exploration at Gibbon's Creek will be funded by Declan. Results from the programs will be reported jointly by the partners as they become available.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations.
