Notes to Editors: About EMED Mining Public Limited
EMED Mining was admitted to trading on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange in May 2005 and on the Toronto Stock Exchange in December 2010.

The Company is committed to responsible development of metals production in Europe, with an initial focus on copper and gold.

EMED Mining is focused on the planning and permitting for the restart of its wholly-owned Rio Tinto Copper Project, with its existing processing plant and other infrastructure already in place.

With mining rights now granted, EMED Mining is focusing on developing on-site mining operations with a view to achieving production as quickly as possible (subject to receiving all the necessary further licences and raising the necessary finance).

With an established reserve of 123Mt @ 0.49% Cu (606 kt of contained Cu) and infrastructure in place, resuming production at the Rio Tinto Copper Project will be relatively low cost and near term. Targeting a first stage base case production of 5mtpa in 2015, the Company will focus on increasing production and growing the already established reserve base.

The Rio Tinto Copper Project is located on the world's largest volcanogenic massive sulphide system. The initial focus will be on the Cerro Colorado Pit with further growth opportunities coming from the development of the San Dionisio and San Antonio Mines.

Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy.
Businesses and business units of all sizes can benefit from cloud computing, but many don't want the cost, performance and security concerns of public cloud nor the complexity of building their own private clouds. Today, some cloud vendors are using artificial intelligence (AI) to simplify cloud deployment and management. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ajay Gulati, Co-founder and CEO of ZeroStack, will discuss how AI can simplify cloud operations. He will cover the following topics: why clou...
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute.

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever.

Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
