VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/30/14 -- Northern Vertex Mining Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:NEE)(OTCQX:NHVCF) announces that the Company's unaudited interim consolidated financial results for the third quarter fiscal 2014 ended March 31, 2014 (the "Q3 Financials") have been filed on SEDAR. The full version of the Financial Statements and Management's Discussion & Analysis can be viewed on the Company's website at www.northernvertex.com or on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
Highlights of the Company's Q3 Financials include:
-- Gold and silver sales (net of royalties and selling costs) from the Phase I - Pilot Plant of $5,085,427 year-to-date; -- Excluding non-cash, unrealized foreign exchange gains or losses, net loss for the quarter was $908,129, compared to a net loss of $4,153,471 for the comparative period last year. Net income for the quarter was $119,519, primarily due to a $1,027,648 non-cash, unrealized foreign exchange gain, and income per share of $0.002 compared to a net loss of $4,165,466 and loss per share of $0.079 for the same period last year; -- Net loss, on a year-to-date basis, of $2,689,968, including a $1,371,519 non-cash, unrealized foreign exchange gain, and a loss per share of $0.049 compared to a net loss of $6,541,307 and loss per share of $0.137 for the comparative period last year. Excluding non-cash, unrealized foreign exchange gains or losses, net loss was $4,061,487, compared to a net loss of $6,533,203 for the comparative period last year; and -- Working capital of $1,783,284 as of March 31, 2014 compared to $5,719,985 as of June 30, 2013.
Dick Whittington, President & CEO, states, "The Moss Mine project is now significantly de-risked following the many technical successes of our Phase I Pilot Plant project and I am delighted to see the gold recoveries of 82%, ten percent above our Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") expectations. Coupled with the excellent economics outlined in the PEA, we are confident that the intrinsic value of the project will be appreciated by the market in due course. In the meantime, I would like, once again, to thank the Northern Vertex team, our community stakeholders, contractors, suppliers and shareholders for their continued support."
Gold and Silver Sales Proceeds
Proceeds received from the Pilot Plant, as of May 28, 2014, totalled US$4.2 million from the sale of 3,206 ounces of gold at an average selling price of US$1,252.71 per ounce and 11,047 ounces of silver at an average selling price of US$20.28 per ounce. Approximately US$1.5 million, using estimated gold and silver market prices of US$1,250 and US$20 per ounce, respectively, is expected over the next five months for total estimated sales proceeds from the Phase I - Pilot Plant of US$5.7 million. Gold and silver sales from the Pilot Plant as per the PEA budget were estimated at US$5.3 million, using prices for gold and silver of US$1,500 and US$30 per ounce, respectively. Given the decrease in metals prices since the date of the PEA, the increase in sales proceeds the Company anticipates over the PEA budget can be attributed to additional tonnage placed on the leach pad and the significantly higher recoveries of gold (82% versus 75%, as noted in the PEA).
-- As of May 28, 2014, the Company has operated for 583 days without a Lost Time Accident or an MSHA Reportable Accident (Mine Safety & Health Administration, US Department of Labor); -- Heap leaching continues and gold and silver are being adsorbed in the carbon columns, carbon is being chemically stripped at off-site facilities and gold and silver sales continue; -- Gold recovery rates, on the first five out of six leach cells is 82% after an average of 240 days and exceeds expectations indicated in the PEA. Silver recovery is 38.8% on the five cells. Gold and silver continue to be recovered from the heap leach operation of the Moss mine; and -- The application for an amendment to the Aquifer Protection Permit was approved by the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality in late December. The amendment permits an increase in the quantity of mineralized material that can be heap leached to a nominal 125,000 tons (approximately 112,500 tonnes) from the previously approved 100,000 tons (approximately 90,000 tonnes). The increase in allowable tonnage has enabled the Company to leach material from a larger area of the Phase I pit and to test recoveries from varying crush sizes further enhancing the contribution and the value of the pilot plant phase. Additional material has been stacked on the heap and the maximum allowable tonnage has been placed in accordance with the permit.
At the beginning of the third quarter of the 2014 fiscal year, the Company underwent a significant company-wide staff and cost reduction program in an effort to continue to exercise fiscal responsibility and to better position itself in a rapidly changing economic and financial climate, while advancing its crucial strategic priorities. The main short-term objective was to develop sustainable cash flow while reducing overhead and operating costs. The Company implemented a hardline cost reduction program which included headcount reductions of over 40%, including certain senior positions, significant reductions in office space, exploration, corporate communications, general and administrative overhead and a halting of consulting arrangements with further reductions planned once the leaching process is completed later in the calendar year. Remaining staff, both corporate and at the mine site, have taken salary and wage reductions, and salary and consulting fee suspensions have been implemented for senior management and directors. These cost reduction measures have had a significant impact on overall costs and ultimately led to increased cash preservation.
On May 26, 2014, the Company announced a non-brokered private placement offering of up to 10 million units at a purchase price of $0.25 per unit, for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of up to $2,500,000. Each unit will consist of one common share and one-half transferable share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one common share at an exercise price of $0.60 for a period of 24 months from the closing date of the private placement. The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Private Placement for the advancement of the Company's Moss Mine Gold-Silver earn-in property located in Mohave County, Arizona, primarily the completion of a feasibility study and general corporate purposes. All securities issued will be subject to a four-month hold period.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
