TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/16/14 -- Orvana Minerals Corp. (TSX: ORV) (the "Company" or "Orvana") produced 21,532 ounces of gold in the third quarter of fiscal 2014.
The following table sets out consolidated operating performance data for the EVBC and Don Mario Mines for the periods set out below together with updated fiscal 2014 guidance:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------- EVBC Mines Don Mario Total Total FY2014 Q3 2014 Q3 2014 Q3 2014 YTD 2014 Guidance ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Milled (tonnes) (dmt) 145,169 199,313 Gold Grade (g/t) 3.76 1.88 Recovery (%) 93.6 42.5 80,000 - Production (oz) 16,405 5,127 21,532 59,921 86,000 Copper Grade (%) 0.51 1.50 Recovery (%) 86.4 51.4 Production ('000 19,000 - lbs) 1,404 3,381 4,785 14,551 21,000 Silver Grade (g/t) 11.52 49.66 Recovery (%) 79.5 53.0 840,000 - Production (oz) 42,755 168,704 211,459 741,945 900,000 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Gold production at the EVBC Mines in Spain was higher in the third quarter of fiscal 2014 compared with earlier quarters in fiscal 2014. The re-commissioning of the hoist and shaft, repaired in the first half of fiscal 2014, together with work completed to recover a failed zone in the San Martin skarns area in the Boinas mine, facilitated production increases. Additionally, management focused on optimizing the grade of the mineralization sent to the process plant, resulting in fewer tonnes processed.
At the Don Mario Mine in Bolivia, the Company commissioned two new gravity concentrators towards the end of March 2014. This has yet to consistently produce the expected result of increasing gold recoveries due to commissioning challenges and complex mineralogy. Consequently sales of the new gold concentrate are now expected to commence early in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014.
Orvana is maintaining its guidance for gold and copper and lowering its guidance for silver to between 840,000 and 900,000 ounces for the year.
Orvana Minerals is a multi-mine gold and copper producer. Orvana's primary operations are the El Valle-Boinas/Carles gold-copper mines in northern Spain and the copper-gold-silver Don Mario Mine in Bolivia. Additional information is available at Orvana's website (www.orvana.com).

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
