Allied Nevada Announces Preliminary Q2 Production and Sales; On Track to Meet Annual Guidance

RENO, NEVADA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/11/14 -- Allied Nevada Gold Corp. ("Allied Nevada" or the "Company") (TSX: ANV) (NYSE MKT: ANV) reports that second quarter 2014 production and sales targets were achieved at its wholly owned Hycroft mine in Nevada. Preliminary second quarter and year to date 2014 production and sales, as compared with production and sales in the comparative 2013 periods, were as follows:

                                     Three months ended   Six months ended
                                           June 30,           June 30,
                                       2014      2013      2014      2013

Ounces produced           Gold          56,864    39,195   116,978    77,214
                          Silver       481,151   132,841   893,657   320,841

Ounces sold               Gold          57,050    41,512   116,520    68,768
                          Silver       474,832   146,303   881,066   321,069

Hycroft continues to benefit from the increased mining capacity and process improvements that have been implemented to the heap leach operation over the last few years. As announced on June 16, 2014, the crushing system became operational in early June and, to date, we have crushed and placed more than 400,000 tons of ore on the heap leach pads.

Gold production and sales were 51% and 69% higher in the first half of 2014 when compared with the same period in 2013. The largest contributor to the recent production and related sales improvements was the increased processing capacity of the new Merrill-Crowe plant. Gold sales volumes generated from the carbon columns represented approximately 15% of the total gold sales volumes during the first half of 2014 compared with 27% of the total gold sales volumes for the first half of 2013. Silver production and sales in the first half of 2014 were not only more than double that of the same period in 2013, but also more than in all of 2013. We continue to be on track to meet our full year 2014 guidance estimates for both gold and silver.

We expect to issue second quarter 2014 financial results on August 4, 2014, after close of market. We plan on holding a conference call and webcast on August 5, 2014, to discuss these results followed by a question and answer session.

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation.

How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

We all know that data growth is exploding and storage budgets are shrinking. Instead of showing you charts on about how much data there is, in his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at HGST, showed how to capture all of your data in one place. After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
