EDMONTON, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/17/14 -- Mindoro Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: MIO)(ASX: MDO)(FRANKFURT:WKN 906167) ("Mindoro", or "the Company") today provided notice that an annual and special meeting of shareholders of the Company (the "Meeting") will be held in Edmonton, Alberta, on November 28, 2014. The close of business on October 9, 2014, has been fixed as the record date for determination of shareholders entitled to notice of and to vote at the Meeting or any adjournment. Further details, including location and agenda, will be provided after the October 9, 2014, record date.
Mindoro's CEO, Tony Climie, stated, "We expect the direct shipping ore operation of high-iron laterite resources at the Agata project to be fully operational by the Meeting date and we look forward to celebrating this significant transition with our shareholders."
Mindoro and TVIRD Joint Ventures
Mindoro and TVI Resource Development (Phils.), Inc. ("TVIRD"), an affiliate of TVI Pacific Inc. (TSX: TVI)(OTCQX: TVIPF), have signed four joint venture agreements relating to the Agata and Pan de Azucar exploration and mining projects located in the Philippines, as previously announced on October 1, 2012. The joint ventures present Mindoro and TVIRD with multiple growth opportunities for near and medium-term cash flow, including:
-- near-term high-iron laterite direct shipping ore ("DSO"); -- near-term limestone DSO; -- medium-term lime production facility; -- medium-term nickel-processing plant.
On April 28, 2014, Mindoro announced that the Agata project had received a Declaration of Mining Project Feasibility ("DMPF") and clearance to develop a port facility. Receipt of the DMPF authorizes the DSO project to proceed to development, including the extraction and sale of iron, nickel and other associated minerals. Site development is expected to commence shortly followed by shipping of the high-iron laterite in the third quarter of 2014, subject to receipt of remaining port approvals and financing.
TVIRD may earn up to a 60% interest in each of the joint ventures and is operator of the projects. As at March 31, 2014, TVIRD had earned a 59% interest in the Agata Mining Joint Venture and a 45% interest the Agata Processing Joint Venture. To complete earning its interest, TVIRD must, in the case of the Agata Mining Joint Venture, achieve DSO operation within three years of entering into the joint venture agreement, and, in the case of the Agata Processing Joint Venture, complete the bankable feasibility study for a Nickel Processing Facility within four years of entering into the joint venture agreement.
On behalf of the Board of Directors,
Tony Climie, CEO

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

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

What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
