Amalgamated Gold and Silver Inc. (BCHS) Signs Letter of Intent (LOI) On ULEXITE Asset
Jan 14, 2014 -- Amalgamated Gold and Silver Inc. (AGS) announced it has signed an LOI with EEPL proprietary, a Bolivian entity, to acquire a 51% controlling interest in the Ulexite Calcination plant in Oruro, Bolivia.
The company, after thorough due-diligence, found the costs to initiate the project three times higher than what was originally presented by the seller and therefore has elected not to proceed with the joint venture.
Amalgamated Gold and Silver Inc. Signs Letter of Intent (LOI).
Jan. 30, 2014 -- Amalgamated Gold and Silver Inc. (AGS) announced the signing of an LOI to joint venture and or/acquire the La Bonanza Concession located in Nayarit, Mexico.
While the results of the site visit and assay results from samples taken were positive, due to the location and elevation of the mine the company has decided that the initial costs for 6 kilometer access road and subsequent drilling program are prohibitive. At this time the company will not conclude this joint venture or acquisition. This concession, if available, will be revisited in the future.
Amalgamated Gold and Silver Inc. Confirms the Imminent Production of Antimony Ore from their St Anthony Mine in Bolivia.
Feb.4, 2014 -- Amalgamated Gold and Silver Inc. (AGS) announced it has confirmed the imminent production of Antimony Ore from its St Anthony Mine in Turiri Bolivia.
As a result of the recent mine site visit and subsequent reports, the company has decided that an open pit mining operation will be the most effective and economical for the long term. Local geologist Hernan Uribe has been retained to produce an open pit mining plan and projections for production. This will include the evaluation of a new adit recently opened which appears will intersect the main proven ore bodies of the Gamma, Alpha and possibly the Beta veins.
The company is actively engaged in the reopening of the San Antonio de Turiri mine and has deployed local Hernan Uribe and his associates to the mine site. Mr. Uribe's report and recommendations are expected the latter part of this month. Further information of the ongoing work at the mine will be published as it develops.
Amalgamated Gold and Silver Inc. Signs Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).
Feb. 5, 2014 -- Amalgamated Gold and Silver Inc. (AGS) announced it has signed a MOU to acquire the Huajara Polymetalic Processing Plant in Oruro Bolivia.
After inspection of the facility and due-diligence on the contracts for processing, the company has elected not to proceed with this acquisition having been unable to verify the contracts for processing from any of the company's as represented by the seller. In the event of confirmable contracts being made available, this project will be revisited.
The company thanks you for your interest and continued support.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace.

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
