Junex Comments on the Quebec Government's Announcement About Oil and Gas Exploration

QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 05/30/14 -- Junex (TSX VENTURE: JNX) is pleased by the Quebec Government's announcement this morning confirming that it will maintain the partnership agreements signed between Ressources Quebec and the oil companies active on Anticosti Island.

In parallel with the exploration operations that would be conducted on Anticosti Island, the Quebec government announces the establishment of a Strategic Environmental Assessment that will cover the entire hydrocarbon sector, thus complementing the existing studies on shale gas.

Junex finally welcomes the clearly-expressed will of the Government of Quebec to conduct these studies on a sound scientific basis in order to ensure that oil and gas development in Quebec can be done, if the case arises, in the largest respect of the principles of sustainable development.

All documents in connection with the Government's announcement are available at the following address : http://www.mddelcc.gouv.qc.ca/communiques/2014/Plan-action-hydrocarbure-briefing-technique-final.pdf

LOI between Ressources Quebec and Junex

In February 2014, Junex signed a Letter of Intent with Ressources Quebec which could lead to a two-phase exploration program with a maximum of $90 million funded in whole by RQ and a third unidentified partner from the industry. In return for their investments, Ressources Quebec and the industry partner will gain a working interest of 80% in a Limited Partnership in a project company who will control 100% of Junex's permits.

Per this agreement, a total of nine (9) wells totalling $50 million will be drilled during Phase 1 of the exploration program. The second phase will be determined by the results of the first phase. The costs for the second phase are estimated at $40 milion. This agreement is subject to the conclusion of an agreement with a third partner of the industry before October 31, 2014.

In parallel to this agreement with Junex, Ressources Quebec has also signed a partnership agreement with the group of companies holding the other permits on Anticosti Island. This second agreement provides that drilling will be completed in 2014. If this is the case, Junex anticipates that this work will be carried out close to the permits held by Junex. The value of our licenses could fluctuate depending on the results that will be obtained during this work.

Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time. Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud. Without knowing the right questions to ask, you could wind up paying for capacity you'll never need or underestimating the resources required to run your applications.
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
