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."

Many private cloud projects were built to deliver self-service access to development and test resources. While those clouds delivered faster access to resources, they lacked visibility, control and security needed for production deployments. In their session at 18th Cloud Expo, Steve Anderson, Product Manager at BMC Software, and Rick Lefort, Principal Technical Marketing Consultant at BMC Software, will discuss how a cloud designed for production operations not only helps accelerate developer...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...

A critical component of any IoT project is the back-end systems that capture data from remote IoT devices and structure it in a way to answer useful questions. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle large data sets, but they are not well suited to many IoT-scale products and the need for real-time insights. At Fuze, we have developed a backend platform as part of our mobility-oriented cloud service that uses Big Data-based approache...

The increasing popularity of the Internet of Things necessitates that our physical and cognitive relationship with wearable technology will change rapidly in the near future. This advent means logging has become a thing of the past. Before, it was on us to track our own data, but now that data is automatically available. What does this mean for mHealth and the "connected" body? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Lisa Calkins, CEO and co-founder of Amadeus Consulting, will discuss the impact of wea...

There is an ever-growing explosion of new devices that are connected to the Internet using “cloud” solutions. This rapid growth is creating a massive new demand for efficient access to data. And it’s not just about connecting to that data anymore. This new demand is bringing new issues and challenges and it is important for companies to scale for the coming growth. And with that scaling comes the need for greater security, gathering and data analysis, storage, connectivity and, of course, the...

We’ve worked with dozens of early adopters across numerous industries and will debunk common misperceptions, which starts with understanding that many of the connected products we’ll use over the next 5 years are already products, they’re just not yet connected. With an IoT product, time-in-market provides much more essential feedback than ever before. Innovation comes from what you do with the data that the connected product provides in order to enhance the customer experience and optimize busi...
