TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/22/14 -- Appia Energy Corp. (the "Company" or "Appia") is pleased to report the results of the geological field work conducted in 2013 on its Alces Lake Property.
The work identified a newly discovered area of Rare Earth Elements (REEs) mineralization containing in excess of 35% total rare earth elements (TREEs) by weight plus uranium and thorium.
The Property, comprising 1,518 hectares (approximately 3,751 acres), is 34 km east-northeast of Uranium City, Northern Saskatchewan and is located along and to the south of Alces Lake. Appia owns 90% of the Property.
The objective of the geological field work was to evaluate and map the extent of mineral occurrences that run up to 28.9% TREE in old trenches (as per sampling by the Saskatchewan Geological Survey (C. Normand, 2010, and other), together with anomalous thorium (Th) and uranium (U) values as a follow-up to earlier work by Appia, the Saskatchewan Geological Survey (SGS) and other companies beginning in the 1950s.
The September 2013 exploration project on the Property, centered near the known Alces Lake REE Showings, has expanded the interest in the region with the discovery of a new area of high radioactivity and REE mineralization, designated the "Ivan" showing which is located 125 metres northeast of the Alces Lake existing trenches.
No previous work had identified the Ivan showing, a boulder strewn area of intermittent outcrop with associated radioactivity locally exceeding 56,000 counts per second (cps). The Ivan area is currently defined by two outcrop samples: #12 and #14, and an intervening sample #13 (from a boulder), along a 35 metres north-south trend. Analyses conducted by SRC Geoanalytical Laboratory, Saskatoon (SRC Lab) on sample #14 from the Ivan showing contains in excess of 35 wt % TREE as shown in the table below.
Mineralization in the REE bearing trenches is confined to biotite-rich layers tentatively interpreted by SGS to represent zones of Potassium-REE metasomatism superimposed on residual material in migmatized garnet-paragneisses. The biotite rich zones appear to occur along fault or shear zones and include high concentrations of REE bearing monazite, believed to be the primary mineral phase hosting the REEs. Biotite-monazite REE bearing mineralization has also been located on the Property within quartzite.

1. Samples #12 and #14 (Outcrop), and #13 (Boulder) are from the area of the Ivan mineralization.
2. REE values for samples #2 and #8 are only slightly anomalous, and are not reported here.
3. For sample #14: values are an average of 2 analyses, and; the REs Tm, Lu and Sc are 50 ppm, less than 20 ppm and less than 20ppm, respectively.
Material for analysis was obtained from 14 surface grab samples (excluding blank samples and quality standards) collected from the Property and analyzed by the laboratory. The analytical results were received in December 2013 and were then compiled in the report on the exploration program: "Appia Energy and NRG Exploration Corp., Alces Lake Report, September - 2013, Mineral Disposition #S-112033, Lake Athabasca Area, Saskatchewan".
SRC Geoanalytical Laboratories, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, prepared and analyzed the samples. The laboratory management system operates in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025:2005 (CAN-P-4E), General Requirements for the Competence of Mineral Testing and Calibration Laboratories. Atomic-emission analysis (ICP) was used to determine the concentration of 15 rare earth elements, as well as Th, U, Sc and several whole rock forming elements.
Tom Drivas, CEO and President of Appia Energy Corp., reports, "These favorable exploration results indicate the presence of very high concentrations of REEs on Appia's Alces Lake Property. Appia plans to conduct an airborne survey to evaluate and explore the Alces Lake property further."

In the first article of this three-part series on hybrid cloud security, we discussed the Shared Responsibility Model and examined how the most common attack strategies persist, are amplified, or are mitigated as assets move from data centers to the cloud. Today, we’ll look at some of the unique security challenges that are introduced by public cloud environments. While cloud computing delivers many operational, cost-saving and security benefits, it takes place in a public, shared and on-demand ...

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...
