Alphamin Receives Strong Support from the Government of the Democratic Republic of Congo to Develop Its Bisie Tin Prospect

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/25/14 -- Alphamin Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE: AFM), ("Alphamin" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Government of Democratic Republic of Congo ('DRC") has reaffirmed its commitment to fully support Alphamin as it progresses to develop the first large scale mining operation in the North Kivu Province on its Bisie Tin Prospect in the east central DRC. Construction of the mine at Mpama North is scheduled to commence in 2016.

As announced July 21st, 2014, Alphamin's management team held meetings with the Regional Minister of Mines and the Office of the Prime Minister in Kinshasa, the capital city of DRC. Meetings were also held at the United Nations Organization Stabilization Mission in the Congo ("MONUSCO"), the American Embassy and USAID.

All Senior Government Officials and MONUSCO have confirmed their support is the requirement for a secure, stable environment for Alphamin to continue its operations free from further interference from negative elements operating in the area. Key issues to be addressed by the DRC Government will be to inform affected communities that Alphamin through its wholly owned subsidiary, Mining and Processing Congo SPRL ("MPC") is the full legal title holder of Research Permit PR 5266 and that results of the evaluation mission have indicated that no validation of artisanal mining will take place within the limits of the permit unless agreed to by Alphamin. No dedicated artisanal mining zone exists within the boundaries of the permit.

Alphamin further received assurance that the Ministry supports Alphamin's application to convert a portion of PR 5266 to a Mining Permit, following the DRC Mining Code procedures. The Ministry would further assist in expediting this application process, indicating their support of a large scale mining operation at Bisie.

Alphamin has been informed that the DRC National Army ("FARDC") and MONUSCO have instituted actions to neutralize rebel groups in the area. The success of these operations will dramatically improve the security situation in the Walikale area and location of the Bisie project.

Alphamin implores all parties involved in the resolving of tenure and occupation of the Bisie area to act with maximum restraint and place the human rights of all as of paramount importance.

Alphamin in turn recognizes that the success of the project relies entirely on the full support of local communities. Alphamin has therefore commenced a socio-economic community development programme, which will improve the general living conditions of the population around Bisie and the greater Walikale area. Alphamin is in process of incorporating a Community Trust, which will be funded by 4% of the direct project expenditure excluding DRC taxes. Alphamin has further engaged Coastal Environmental Services ("CES") to conduct a baseline study in which all affected communities and potential development projects will be identified for immediate action.

Alphamin is extremely satisfied with the outcome of meetings held in Kinshasa and is confident that future operations will be conducted in a friendly and safe environment.

Actual results, performance or achievements of the Company may vary from the results suggested by such forward-looking statements due to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors. Such factors include, among others, that the business of exploration for tin and other precious and base minerals involves a high degree of risk and is highly speculative in nature; few properties that are explored are ultimately developed into producing mines; geological factors; the actual results of current and future exploration; changes in project parameters as plans continue to be evaluated, as well as those factors disclosed in the Company's publicly filed documents.

There can be no assurance that any mineralisation that is discovered will be proven to be economic, or that future required regulatory licensing or approvals will be obtained. However, the Company believes that the assumptions and expectations reflected in the forward-looking information are reasonable. Assumptions have been made regarding, among other things, the Company's ability to carry on its exploration activities, the sufficiency of funding, the timely receipt of required approvals, the price of tin and other precious and base metals, that the Company will not be affected by adverse political events, the ability of the Company to operate in a safe, efficient and effective manner and the ability of the Company to obtain further financing as and when required and on reasonable terms.

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.).

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure.

Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
