Coro Provides Update on Berta Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/10/14 -- Coro Mining Corp. ("Coro" or the "Company") (TSX: COP) is pleased to announce the renegotiation of the terms of the final payment due to the underlying owner of the Berta copper development project, located approximately 20km west of the village of Inca de Oro, in the III Region of Chile. The project is being developed by SCM Berta ("SCMB") which is currently 87% owned by Coro and 13% by its partner, ProPipe, a Chilean engineering company, and ProPipe may increase its interest to 50% by funding the ongoing development costs, completing a positive Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") and arranging 100% debt financing, non-recourse to Coro, for the project.

Modified Terms

The payment of US$2,500,000 payable by SCMB on June 10th 2014 has been deferred as follows;

--  US$250,000 payable on August 14 2014
--  US$2,250,000 payable on August 14 2015. SCMB may elect to pay this
    amount in 8 equal quarterly payments of US$281,250 which will bear
    interest at LIBOR.

In addition, under the modified terms SCMB is permitted to commence production at Berta at any time after the August 14 2014 payment.

About Berta

SCMB intends to develop a heap and dump leach operation at Berta and has negotiated a contract with the owners of a nearby solvent extraction/electro-winning ("SXEW") plant, whereby they would sell water and sulphuric acid to SCMB and would purchase pregnant leach solution ("PLS") from SCMB, for a period of 5 years.

Development of the project would include the construction by SCMB of a pipeline between Berta and the third party's processing facilities, as well as a crusher and heap & dump leach pads at the mine site. Subject to SCMB executing the contract with the third party, completing a positive PEA, receiving an approved Environmental Impact Declaration ("EID"), and to obtaining financing for the project, Berta is anticipated to produce 5,000-10,000 tonnes of cathode copper per year, contained in PLS.

The EID permitting process is nearing its conclusion and the contract is currently completing the third party's internal approval process. The engineering studies are virtually complete and Coro anticipates that the PEA and the commercial terms agreed with the third party will be released once the contract is executed. Finally, ProPipe continues discussions with parties interested in financing the project.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute.

In this power panel at @...
As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components.

While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now.

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
