Fancamp Acquires New Palladium Prospect Option in the Labrador Trough

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/14/14 -- Fancamp Exploration Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: FNC) -

The Company wishes to announce the optioning of the early stage Kalko Property, located in the Labrador Trough, 75km NE of the town of Schefferville, Quebec. This 3,824 hectare property lies within the gabbroic portion of the Retty Lake mafic-ultramafic Complex, which elsewhere in the Trough is currently the focus of PGE exploration, most notably by South Africa's Impala Platinum and Japan's JOCMEG.

The Kalko claims themselves are centered on a striking cluster of palladium lake bottom sediment anomalies defined by the re-analysis in 2009, of 21,984 samples by the Quebec government (MRN) taken over some 550 km of strike length in the Labrador Trough. Of these lake bottom sediment samples, only 12 are above 35 ppb palladium, and 8 of these 12 samples are clustered on the Kalko Property including the 3 best palladium values of the entire survey (42, 48 and 50 ppb). These palladium numbers are also accompanied by highly anomalous Nickel, Copper and Chromium values. No follow up work on this remarkable cluster has been recorded (and for comparative purposes, geochemical lake bottom sediments taken in the immediate vicinity of the current North American Palladium Mine in NW Ontario reached maximum values of 14.1 ppb palladium).

The Company has agreed to pay $20,000 on signing and is obliged to spend a minimum of $30,000 in the first year. The balance $290,000 cash and $570,000 in required exploration expenditures before May 2018, to earn a 100% interest, are optional and conditional on results.

A 2% NSR Royalty payable to the vendors underlies the Property, of which 1% may be bought back for $0.5 million before May 2018 or $1.5 million afterward.

In the near term, Fancamp plans a 2 week ground truthing campaign to locate possible sources of the anomalies in the current field season.

This activity is consistent with the Company's policy that the best return on exploration investment always comes from new discoveries.

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. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
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...
