Orsu Metals Corporation: New Exclusivity Agreement for Potential Sale of Akdjol-Tokhtazan

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 04/01/14 -- Orsu Metals Corporation ("Orsu" or the "Company"), the dual listed (TSX: OSU)(AIM: OSU) London-based base and precious metals exploration and development company, today announces that it has entered into a new conditional exclusivity agreement ("New Exclusivity Agreement") with David-Invest LLP ("David-Invest"), a Kyrgyz registered company, and a related company, David Way Limited ("David Way") a Hong Kong registered company (together the "Potential Buyers") with a view to the potential sale of its Akdjol-Tokhtazan gold exploration licences in Kyrgyzstan ("Licences") through either the sale of its wholly owned subsidiary, Tournon Finance Limited ("Tournon"), or Tournon's wholly owned subsidiary, Oriel In Kyrgyzstan LLC ("OIK"), respectively the indirect and direct holders of the Licences. The Company's interest in the Licences was classified as held for sale in 2011 following the Board's decision to actively market the asset and focus on developing its Karchiga Project, the Company's principal copper asset in north-eastern Kazakhstan.

The key terms of the New Exclusivity Agreement are as follows:


--  in return for a non-refundable deposit of $300,000, which has been paid,
    the Potential Buyers have been granted an exclusive right to purchase
    Tournon or OIK until July 1, 2014 (the "Exclusivity Period");

--  David-Invest will fund the exploration programme for the Licences (which
    are due to expire on December 31, 2015) on a non-refundable basis for
    the Exclusivity Period; and

--  the Potential Buyers have the option to purchase the entire share
    capital of Tournon or OIK at any time on or before the expiry of the
    Exclusivity Period for a consideration of US$4.5 million (including the
    deposit), which total amount is unchanged from the previous exclusivity
    agreements.

Other than as described above, there have been no significant changes to the terms of the previous exclusivity agreements signed in 2012 and 2013.

The carrying value of the Licences as at December 31, 2013 was US$4.48 million and the net gain attributable to the Licences for the year ended December 31, 2013 was US$53,000.

The Company will apply any proceeds from a sale to working capital and identification of other early stage exploration opportunities consistent with the Company's strategy.

This brought a new set of challenges as the HyperConverged vendors are very focused on their own proprietary building blocks. If you want to scale in a certain way, let’s say you identified a need for more storage and want to add a device that is not sold by the HyperConverged vendor, forget about it....

Vulnerability management is vital for large companies that need to secure containers across thousands of hosts, but many struggle to understand how exposed they are when they discover a new high security vulnerability. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, John Morello, CTO of Twistlock, will address this pressing concern by introducing the concept of the “Vulnerability Risk Tree API,” which brings all the data together in a simple REST endpoint, allowing companies to easily grasp the severity of t...
Recently, WebRTC has a lot of eyes from market. The use cases of WebRTC are expanding - video chat, online education, online health care etc. Not only for human-to-human communication, but also IoT use cases such as machine to human use cases can be seen recently. One of the typical use-case is remote camera monitoring. With WebRTC, people can have interoperability and flexibility for deploying monitoring service. However, the benefit of WebRTC for IoT is not only its convenience and interopera...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, CTO of Embotics, discussed how automation can provide the dynamic management required to cost-effectively deliver microservices and container solutions at scale. He also discussed how flexible automation is the key to effectively bridging and seamlessly coordinating both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds – an increasingly important requirement at today’s multi-cloud enterprise.
Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.

Any startup has to have a clear go –to-market strategy from the beginning. Similarly, any data science project has to have a go to production strategy from its first days, so it could go beyond proof-of-concept. Machine learning and artificial intelligence in production would result in hundreds of training pipelines and machine learning models that are continuously revised by teams of data scientists and seamlessly connected with web applications for tenants and users.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
IT organizations are moving to the cloud in hopes to approve efficiency, increase agility and save money.
