PC Gold Announces 4000m Shallow Drill Program Underway on the High-Grade No. 22 and 23 Veins

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/20/14 -- PC Gold Inc. (TSX VENTURE :PKL) ("PC Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to report that a 4000m shallow drilling program is now underway at Pickle Crow, targeting the near surface areas of the No. 22 and 23 veins. Approximately 20 holes totaling 4000 metres are planned. The program intends to expand the strike length and increase the drill density from surface to approximately 150m depth on both the No. 22 and 23 veins.

The No. 22 vein was discovered in 2011 and the No. 23 vein in 2012 (see the Company's press releases dated January 11, 2012 and June 4, 2012). PC Gold drilled 44 holes totaling 7,242 meters on the No. 22 and 23 veins in 2011-2012, highlights of which are shown below.

No. 22 Vein Zone:

--  444.38 g/t gold over 1.50 metres from 22.65 to 24.15 meters, including
    1,325.73 g/t gold over 0.5 metres in hole PC-11-251 

No. 23 Vein Zone:

--  10.73 g/t gold over 4.30 meters from 168.00 to 172.40 meters including
    39.12 g/t over 1.00 meter in hole PC-12-276 

Reported widths for the above holes are drilled core lengths; true widths are unknown at this time.

The No. 22 and 23 veins are similar to other past producing Shaft 3 veins which provided the bulk of the ore during the later years of the Pickle Crow mine. The No. 2, 6, and 7 vein zones, the richest of the Shaft 3 veins, produced approx. 500,000 oz of gold.

The No. 22 and 23 Vein Zones are located approx. 400m south of the No. 3 Shaft and are hosted within volcanic and gabbroic rocks of the Confederation Assemblage, which traditionally were not thought to host Pickle Crow type veins, and therefore have experienced little exploration. In addition, the surface projection of these veins is also completely covered by swamp.

This shallow drill program will build upon the high quality 1.26 million ounce NI 43-101 compliant gold resource(i) (10,150,000 tonnes averaging 3.9 g/t gold). The initial resource includes a higher grade underground component comprising 1.1 million ounces averaging 5.4 g/t gold, including a high grade vein component of 600,000 ounces averaging 9.3 g/t gold.

Neil Pettigrew, M.Sc., P.Geo., Vice President, Exploration for PC Gold and the Company's Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101, has reviewed and approved the technical information in this press release.

About PC Gold

PC Gold Inc. is a Canadian gold exploration company currently focused on its 100% owned former producing Pickle Crow gold mine located in Northwestern Ontario. The Company is currently assessing an exploration program to further define the 22 / 23 vein structures on the Pickle Crow project from surface to 300m depth. Should future results and relevant economic analysis support such a course of action, the Company's objective is to commissioning the onsite 225 tpd mill to mine the No. 22 / 23 veins by ramp.

(i) Entirely NI 43-101 Inferred category. The NI 43-101 resource estimate was prepared by Fladgate Exploration Consulting Corporation, and audited and approved by Micon International Limited under the direction of Mr. B. Terrence Hennessey, P.Geo., MAusIMM, Vice President of Micon, an independent Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101. Mr. Neil Pettigrew, Vice President, Exploration for PC Gold and the Company's Qualified Person, is also a partner in Fladgate. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. The quantity and grade of reported inferred resources in this estimation are conceptual in nature and there has been insufficient exploration to define these inferred resources as an indicated or measured resource and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in upgrading them to an indicated or measured resource category.

A copy of the NI 43-101 compliant technical report dated June 2, 2011 containing full details of the resource estimation and entitled: "A Mineral Resource Estimate for the Pickle Crow Property, Patricia Mining Division, Northwestern Ontario, Canada" can be obtained from the Company's website or on SEDAR.

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...
