True Gold Engages SENET as EPCM Contractor for the Karma Project

Leading engineering firm with extensive African heap leach experience engaged

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/24/14 -- True Gold Mining Inc. (TSX VENTURE: TGM) ("True Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that SENET (Pty) Ltd. ("SENET"), a leading South African based mineral process and engineering firm, has been awarded the engineering, procurement and construction management ("EPCM") contract for the Karma Mine in Burkina Faso, West Africa.

"We are very pleased to have engaged SENET as EPCM contractor for the Karma Mine," stated Peter Carter, COO of True Gold. "SENET is very familiar with Karma, having worked with our Owner's team on the project from an early stage, including leading the Feasibility Study(1), construction of the fresh water barrage, and detailed engineering and construction-level design work. In each instance, we have been impressed with their ability to identify potential cost savings, which could cumulatively lead to significant reductions in capital for the overall mine build."

SENET is recognized worldwide for their extensive African mine construction experience, having worked on more than two dozen mines throughout the continent, including leading engineering, construction and procurement for the Yatela, Kalsaka, and Ayanfuri heap leach gold mines in West Africa.

SENET will work closely with our Burkina Faso based senior management team, who have extensive mine building experience around the globe. Peter Carter, True Gold's Chief Operating Officer and Vice President Engineering, was involved in the construction and start-up of the Kumtor Gold Mine in Kyrgyzstan and, as Operations Manager, helped oversee construction at the Boroo Gold Project in Mongolia. Steve Cole, Karma Project Manager, was Project Director with Aurora Energy Resources and Engineering Manager for Fronteer Gold, where he managed engineering studies and projects related to the company's gold projects in Nevada. Chris Wentzel, Karma Construction Manager, has supervised gold and copper mine construction projects in African jurisdictions such as Guinea, Sierra Leone, Eritrea and Mali.

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...
The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS).

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
