Positive Initial Results From Metallurgical Tests at East Asia Minerals' Sangihe Island Project in Indonesia

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/31/14 -- East Asia Minerals Corporation (TSX VENTURE: EAS) ("East Asia Minerals" or "the Company") today announced the initial results of metallurgical studies of composite samples from its drilling program at the Binebase and Bawone mineralized zones on Sangihe Island in Indonesia.

The test work, conducted by ALS Laboratories in Perth, Australia under the supervision of Ausenco Processing Engineers, found that over 92 percent gold recovery could be achieved from the oxide ore in the composite samples using leach technology. Ausenco also achieved over 83 percent recovery from the sulphide ore in testing using flotation practices.

"The test results further demonstrate the potential at Sangihe to advance to development and that heap leaching can be a low-cost alternative," stated Ed Rochette, CEO of East Asia Minerals. "More work is planned, including gravity recovery and downstream test work, to define a process flowsheet."

In 2013, the Company carried out a 5,164 metre drilling project at Sangihe Island. The program was composed of 25 holes at Binebase for a total of 2,485 metres, six holes at Bawone for a total of 976 metres and 10 holes at another mineralized zone, called Taware, for a total of 1,703 metres.

The Sangihe Gold-Copper Project is located on the island of Sangihe off the northern coast of Sulawesi in Indonesia. Sangihe has an existing NI 43-101 compliant inferred mineral resource of 27.3 million tonnes containing 836,718 ounces of gold at an average grade of 1.1 g/t and 11,927,237 ounces of silver at an average grade of 12.2 g/t (using a 0.25 g/t gold cut-off).

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.
