TriMetals Mining Inc. Intersects 38 metres of 1 g/t AuEq(i) including 7.6 metres of 3.2 g/t AuEq at the Jumbo Target on the Gold Springs Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/01/14 -- TriMetals Mining Inc. (TSX:TMI)(TSX:TMI.B)(OTCQX:TMIAF)(OTCQX:TMIBF), a gold stock, is pleased to announce the results from an important additional Reverse Circulation ("RC") drill hole from the Jumbo Area and six RC holes from the Etna Area at the Gold Springs gold-silver project in the mining friendly jurisdictions of Nevada and Utah, USA.

RC hole J-14-011 intersected 38.1 metres of 1.01 g/t AuEq(i), including 7.6 metres of 3.21 g/t AuEq(i), to the east of the center portion of the Jumbo resource block where previous drilling was done in this sector. Further drilling will be needed to better understand the relationship of this mineralization to that to the North and to the South due to east-west faulting in the area. The indications, however, are that this intercept extends the 200m long higher grade southern Jumbo zone, which includes the [email protected] g/t AuEq(i) in hole J-14-004, reported in the previous news release (NR14-16, July 11, 2014) for an additional 100 metres to the north.

Azimuth 270 degrees, declination -55 degrees. Cut off 0.1g/t AuEq. (i)Gold Equivalent ("AuEq") uses a Au/Ag ratio of 57.14 and assumes 100% metallurgical recoveries.

Ralph Fitch, President and CEO of TriMetals Mining Inc. (the "Company") stated "These results again expand the mineralized zone at Jumbo where we have established a mineral resource (Amended PEA filed on July 8, 2014). It also demonstrates that as we continue the drill program we continue to expand the mineralization and get ever closer to our near term goal of a million ounces AuEq(i). As I keep restating, the significant upside the Company has, is that less than 10% of the prospective areas at Gold Springs have been drilled."

Six RC holes were also completed on the Etna target approximately 2 km south of the present Jumbo Resource Block. Etna was chosen as the next target to test because of extensive outcrops of gold mineralization.

RC hole E-14-001 intersected mineralization over 106.7 metres @0.49 AuEq(i) and included 29 metres of 1.03 g/t AuEq(i). This broad zone relates to RC hole E-12-001 drilled approximately 50 metres to the north which intersected 125 metres of 0.35 g/t AuEq(i) including 39.6 metres of 0.64 g/t AuEq(i). More drilling is required to further define this new zone and its extensions which have the potential to be substantial because of the large intercept widths.

The remaining five holes at Etna were exploratory in nature and intersected weak mineralization often over broad widths. Further geological and geophysical analysis and additional drilling is required in the Etna zone to follow the extensions of the mineralized body found in E12-001 and E14-001.

Sections showing the location of the reported holes can be found on the Company's website at:

www.trimetalsmining.com

The drill program at Gold Springs started at Jumbo where eleven holes have been drilled, it then moved to the Etna target, 2 km south of Jumbo, which was chosen as the third target for this year's drill program. Six exploration holes were completed on the Etna target and then the drill was moved to Grey Eagle where eleven holes have been completed. Samples from the Grey Eagle holes are presently in the laboratory for assaying.

The following lists the results from all the six Etna RC holes:

This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.

This amazing is not part of some distant future - it is happening today. One report shows a 650% increase in enterprise data by 2020. Other estimates are even higher....
I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

To leverage Continuous Delivery, enterprises must consider impacts that span functional silos, as well as applications that touch older, slower moving components. Managing the many dependencies can cause slowdowns. See how to achieve continuous delivery in the enterprise.
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
