MONTREAL, CANADA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/09/14 -- Osisko Mining Corporation (TSX:OSK); (FRANKFURT:EWX) ("Osisko") provides the following update on the application that was commenced by Abitibi Royalties Inc. ("Abitibi") in the Quebec Superior Court (the "Court").
On May 30, 2014, Osisko announced that it had received motion materials from Abitibi seeking to, among other things, enforce claimed contractual rights under a mining option agreement (the "Mining Option Agreement") in relation to 10 undeveloped claims known as the Malartic CHL Prospect in which Abitibi holds a 30% interest and Osisko holds the remaining 70% interest, prior to completion of the arrangement ("Arrangement") between Osisko, Agnico Eagle Mines Limited ("Agnico Eagle") and Yamana Gold Inc. ("Yamana").
While Osisko, Agnico Eagle and Yamana believe that Abitibi's claim is opportunistic and without merit, on June 2, 2014, Osisko, Agnico Eagle and Yamana agreed to amend the plan of arrangement (the "Plan") to clarify that Abitibi's rights and obligations are not affected by the Arrangement. The Plan was amended to provide (i) that the CHL Prospect will not be transferred by Osisko under the Arrangement, (ii) that the Arrangement is not intended to affect the rights and obligations of Abitibi or Osisko under the Mining Option Agreement, and (iii) that Osisko will be bound by any award made pursuant to the mandatory arbitration clause in the Mining Option Agreement.
On June 4, 2014, Abitibi advised the Court that it would not proceed with its motion for the issuance of provisional injunctive orders. On June 5, 2014, at Abitibi's request, the Court adjourned Abitibi's motion indefinitely.
On June 5, 2014, Osisko advised the Court of its intention to bring a motion to compel Abitibi to resolve its claims through arbitration. The Court has fixed June 13, 2014 for the hearing of Osisko's motion.
Osisko will continue to defend against Abitibi's claims vigorously.
Osisko Mining Corporation operates the Canadian Malartic Gold Mine in Malartic, Quebec and is pursuing exploration on a number of properties, notably in Quebec, Ontario and Mexico.

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security.

The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress.
