TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 04/29/14 -- Tawsho Mining Inc. (TSX VENTURE: TAW) ("Tawsho" or the "Corporation") is pleased to provide an exploration update for its Cabot Graphite Property and details on the completion of financing.
Tawsho has accepted a Metallurgical Operations Proposal from SGS Canada Inc. ("SGS") to evaluate graphite samples from the Cabot Graphite Property located 10 km north of Baie Verte in Newfoundland. The study will determine the purity, grade and flake size distribution from a composite graphite sample taken from the previous drill program. The study is expected to be completed by June 2014.
Tawsho has engaged the geological services of Caracle Creek International Consulting Inc. ("Caracle Creek") to complete the sampling program on the four previously drilled holes at the Cabot Graphite Property (see news release dated November 12, 2013, for original results). Caracle Creek has taken 240 additional samples to be assayed and integrated with the previous assay results. Caracle Creek also noted that drillholes CB13-03 and CB13-04 ended in graphite indicating that the thickness of the zone may be greater than was originally thought. Caracle Creek has also taken a representative composite sample of the graphite for the SGS metallurgical study.
Tawsho is also pleased to announce that it has completed its non-brokered private placement offering to arm's-length and non-arm's-length parties (the "Offering"), as announced in a previous news release dated April 4, 2014. The Corporation issued 625,000 hard dollar units ("HD Units") at a price of $0.08 per HD Unit for proceeds of $50,000 and 1,666,700 flow-through units ("FT Units") at a price of $0.09 per FT Unit, for proceeds of $150,003, for total gross proceeds of $200,003. Tawsho has 31,543,549 common shares issued and outstanding following completion of this private placement.
In the Corporation's news release dated April 4, 2014, the number of issued and outstanding common shares was incorrectly stated to be 25,251,849, when it should have stated 29,251,849, which was the number of common shares issued and outstanding prior to completion of this financing.
Each HD unit consists of one common share and one common share purchase warrant. Each common share purchase warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share of Tawsho at a price of $0.12 per share until April 29, 2016. Each FT unit consists of one flow-through common share and one common share purchase warrant. Each warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share of Tawsho at a price of $0.12 per share until April for a period of two years from the date of issuance. All securities issued pursuant to the Offering are subject to a hold period of four months and one day which expires August 30, 2014, in accordance with applicable securities regulatory and TSX Venture Exchange requirements.
Insiders of the Corporation subscribed for 74.5% of the Offering. No finder's fees were paid by the Corporation in respect of the Offering.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership ability. Many are unable to effectively engage and inspire, creating forward momentum in the direction of desired change. Renowned for its approach to leadership and emphasis on their people, organizations increasingly look to our military for insight into these challenges.

Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and Containers together help companies to achieve their business goals faster and more effectively.

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, will explore HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.

There will be 20 billion IoT devices connected to the Internet soon. What if we could control these devices with our voice, mind, or gestures? What if we could teach these devices how to talk to each other? What if these devices could learn how to interact with us (and each other) to make our lives better? What if Jarvis was real? How can I gain these super powers? In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, will show you!
