VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/16/14 -- Northern Vertex Mining Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:NEE) (OTCQX:NHVCF) is pleased to announce that it has secured an option on the adjacent Silver Creek property, located to the east and southeast of the current Moss claim block on the Company's Moss Mine Gold-Silver earn-in property located in Mohave County, Arizona, USA.
The Silver Creek Property is 1450 hectares (ha) in size and consists of 180 claims (1198 ha) and one leased State section (259 ha). It adjoins the Moss property to the east and southeast and is located between the Moss property and the main Oatman mining district.
The Silver Creek property has good exploration potential for both Moss type disseminated low grade gold deposits and high grade bonanza type deposits of both the Oatman, low sulfidation type deposits (about 2.2 million ounces produced at average grade of 0.58 opt gold)(1) and Goldfields, high sulfidation type deposits (about 4 million ounces produced at an average grade of 1.0 opt gold)(2).
Dick Whittington, President & CEO Northern Vertex Mining Corp., states, "The Silver Creek property is in an exciting addition to the Company's interests in the region and will add to our potential to make further gold discoveries. We look forward to evaluating the property in conjunction with our Moss Mine property wide exploration programme. The Blue Sky potential of the combined properties is significant and we are hopeful of establishing that potential as reality."

(2) Rockwell, Barnaby W., The Goldfield Mining District, Nevada: An Acid Sulfate Bonanza Gold Deposit. U.S.G.S. October 2000.
The property contains exploration potential in the following areas:
-- The eastern extension of Moss vein (approx. 760 m strike length) -- Several known epithermal veins with grades up to 4 g/t Au in surface samples -- 5 target areas within a large (approximately 1.5km by 5km) high-level, high-sulfidation alteration system with anomalous Au, Ag, Hg, F levels. -- Widespread gold anomalies up to 997 ppb exist. Alteration and textures are indicative of high-level mineralization above possible blind bonanza ore bodies. -- Exploration targets include extension of the Moss vein system and the extension of the Gold Road vein structure where it intersects the United Eastern structure (Gold Road produced 484,000 ounces at 0.32 opt gold to 1942 and United Eastern produced 769,000 ounces at 1.15 opt gold)(1).
To date, only surface work has been carried out (rock sampling, mapping, geophysics). No drilling has taken place. The Company will be developing a comprehensive ground level exploration plan to evaluate the various exploration targets mentioned above. This will complement the Company's property wide exploration plan described in an earlier news release (dated April 1st, 2014) that outlined the prospectivity of the Moss property as a result of a recent Airborne Magnetics Survey and will run concurrent with completion of the feasibility study and development of the Phase II - Operations phase of the Company's business plan.
This property, given its strategic location, will add to the Company's already significant exploration upside in the region. Given that the Moss Mine structure contains 654,000 ounces of M+I AuEq resources and 82,000 ounces of inferred AuEq resources (see below for a detailed breakdown and assumptions used) along 1400 meters of mineralized structure and that the United Eastern, Tom Reed and Gold Road mines produced over 2.0 million ounces along a combined strike length of approximately 2 kilometers of mineralized structure, the Blue Sky exploration potential of the combined Moss mine property and the Silver Creek property can be considered highly prospective.
Terms of The Option Agreement
The mineral lease and option agreement is between the Company and La Cuesta International Inc. (LCI) of Kingman, Arizona and is dated as of May 7, 2014. The key terms are:
-- Term of 35 years. -- US$5,000 cash on execution plus 100,000 Northern Vertex shares (subject to TSXV approval). -- Annual expenditures commence in year 1 at US$10,000 in cash plus a work commitment of US$15,000 and increase gradually to US$50,000 with no work commitment in year 5. In year 3, a one-off $200,000 work commitment is included. -- A production royalty will apply as follows: 1.5% NSR on claims owned 100% by LCI and 0.5% NSR on third party claims within the claim block. NSR rates will be reduced by half once US$4 million is paid in total royalties. All payments other than work commitments are credited against the royalty. -- Option to purchase. Northern Vertex can acquire the claims at any time for US$4 million in any combination of aggregate royalty payments and lump sum payments at its sole discretion.
The Company's operations currently focus solely on the leaching of gold from the pilot plant leach pad operation. The Company continues to exercise fiscal responsibility and has reduced costs, corporately and in the field, in order to preserve cash in the current market environment. Work on the Feasibility Study continues with the immediate focus on reviewing and enhancing the Company's block model based on the most recent drilling (see News Release dated October 17, 2013); and additional geological information made available as a result of the Company's Phase I - Pilot Plant operations.
The foregoing geological disclosure has been reviewed and verified by James McDonald, P.Geo. Mr. McDonald is a director of Northern Vertex and a Qualified Person ("QP") for the purpose of National Instrument 43-101 (Disclosure Standards for Mineral Projects).
Moss Mine Mineral Resource Estimate:
The Moss Mine deposit is an epithermal, brecciated, low sulphidation quartz-calcite vein and stockwork system which extends over a strike length of 1,400 meters and has been drill tested to depths of 200 meters vertically. The Moss mineral resources as estimated in the Company's recent preliminary economic assessment as outlined in the Company's News Release dated June 18, 2013, are as follows:
Resource Au Category Eq(i)(oz) Au (oz) Ag (oz) Tonnes Grade AuEq Au Ag (g/t) (g/t) (g/t) Measured 419,000 345,000 3,688,000 12,611,000 1.03 0.85 9.10 Indicated 235,000 192,000 2,142,000 9,978,000 0.73 0.60 6.70 M+I 654,000 537,000 5,830,000 22,589,000 0.90 0.74 8.00 Inferred 82,000 66,000 801,000 3,957,000 0.64 0.52 6.30 -- Gold equivalency is based on a silver: gold ratio of 50:1 and assumes 100% recovery of all metals. -- A 0.30 g/t Au cut-off grade was used. -- Mineral Resources are not Mineral Reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. There is no certainty that all or any part of the Mineral Resources estimated will be converted into Mineral Reserves estimates. -- Mineral resource tonnage and contained metal have been rounded to reflect the accuracy of the estimate and numbers may not add due to rounding. -- Resources were based on 36,805 meters of drilling in 658 exploration drill holes and 530 meters of channel sampling. There were a total of 7,677- 5 meter composite samples used in the estimation of gold and silver. Metal Mining Consultants Inc. (MMC) used Inverse Power Distance (ID3) as the preferred estimation technique for the Moss Project. -- MMC capped gold assays, prior to compositing 5 meter samples, at 17 grams per tonne and silver at 140 grams per tonne in order to limit the effect of high grade outlier grades in the estimation of mineral resources. -- MMC applied Industry Standards in the selection of the drill hole and assay information gathered from historic and current exploration programs in its determination of Measured Mineral Resources, Indicated Resources and Inferred Resources.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
