Maxim Signs Reconaissance Contract for Hassi Berkane Block With ONHYM

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/23/14 -- Maxim Resources Inc. (Maxim) (TSX VENTURE: MXM)(OTCBB: MXMSF)(FRANKFURT: M5H) is pleased to announce the Corporation has signed a Reconnaissance Contract for the Hassi Berkane Block (formerly Beni Znassen Block) in the Kingdom of Morocco ("Morocco").

Maxim signed the Reconnaissance Contract with Mrs. Amina Benkhadra, the Managing Director of the National Office of Hydrocarbons and Mines ("ONHYM"). ONHYM and Maxim has jointly applied to the Ministry of Energy, Mines, Water and Environment of Morocco (MEMWE) for the Reconnaissance Concession, which is expected to be issued in the coming weeks.

The Hassi Berkane Block is located onshore in the northeast part of Morocco and encompasses 5,116 km2 with extensive 2-D seismic data. Key attributes of the Hassi Berkane Block are:

--  Similar reservoir and source rocks to the Tselfat area in central
    Morocco, which has large proven oil and gas reserves.
--  The seismic data reveals several alluring structural anomalies with a
    similar profile to the numerous oil & gas fields in the Tselfat area.
--  At least one of the anomalies is extremely large and appears to be
    structurally closed.
--  There is a known oil seep at the periphery of the Hassi Berkane Basin.
--  Drilling depth to target horizons is less than 3,000 meters.
--  The property is close to the Maghreb Europe Gas Pipeline, which
    transports gas from the super giant Maghreb gas field in adjacent
    Algeria. The pipeline has ample excess capacity.

Maxim will start Stage 1 reconnaissance of the Hassi Berkane Block in the next 30 days which will consists of;

--  Preparation of a NI51-101 Standards of Disclosure For Oil and Gas
    Activities by a Qualified Person
--  Reprocessing 600 kilometers of existing 2-D seismic data
--  Reprocessing 10,000 kilometers of aero mag and gravity
--  A rock evaluation of basin outcrops
--  A micro-seepage study across the identified structural anomaly
--  Attribute reprocessing of key seismic lines, including direct
    hydrocarbon identification
--  Hyper spectral/multi-spectral analysis from high-resolution satellite
    imagery.

Art Brown, CEO and President of Maxim stated; "Maxim has been seeking new opportunities that will have both exploration and near term production possibilities. This Hassi Berkane Block has a substantial footprint and the early stage research appears promising. Morocco has become a new frontier for oil and gas exploration and production and we are very excited about the opportunity to participate in this country's development."

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
