DDL is an experienced diamond drilling company, with a service and supply office in Lumby, BC. A Hydracore #2000 skid drill will be used for HQ and NQ sized wireline core diamond drilling, with a depth penetration of up to 1,250 metres.

Orex's President, Gary Cope says, "We are looking forward to drill results adding to the existing NI 43-101 resource estimate at Jumping Josephine.

Jumping Josephine Gold-Silver Project, British Columbia, Canada

The Jumping Josephine Project totals approximately 11,667 hectares and is located in Southern British Columbia, 20 km west of Castlegar and 25 km north of the historic Rossland Gold Camp. The project, originally assembled in 2004 by Kootenay Silver Inc. ("Kootenay"), was optioned to Astral Mining Corp. ("Astral") in 2005.

Exploration between 2006 and 2011 included surface mapping, geochemistry, geophysics, and the completion of 140 diamond drill-holes. Work on the JJ Main showing culminated in the estimation of a 43-101 compliant resource calculated by Apex Geoscience Ltd. ("Apex").

Apex estimates an Indicated mineral resource of 363,000 tonnes averaging 2.95 g/t Au for 34,000 oz and Inferred mineral resource of 448,000 tonnes averaging 2.08 g/t Au for 30,000 oz. The effective date of the resource is March 24th, 2011. The 43-101 Technical Report authored by A.J. Turner P.Geol, M. Dufresne, P.Geol and S.

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...
