Blox Announces Closing of Acquisition of the Mansounia Concession

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/06/14 -- Blox Inc. ("Blox" or the "Company") (OTCQB: BLXX) is pleased to announce that the Company has entered into a Deed of Assignment and Assumption Agreement dated July 24, 2014 (the "Assumption Agreement") with Joseph Boampong Memorial Institute Ltd. ("JBMIL") and Equus Mining Ltd. ("EML"), Burey Gold Guinee sarl ("BGGs") and Burey Gold Limited ("BGL") and, collectively with EML and BGGs, (the "Vendors"), pursuant to which the Company has agreed to assume JBMIL's right to acquire a 78% beneficial interest in the Mansounia Concession (the "Property") from the Vendors. The Company also announces that it has exercised that right and has acquired a 78% beneficial interest in the Property.

The Property lies in the southwest margin of the Siguiri Basin, in the Kouroussa Prefecture, Kankan Region, in Guinea, West Africa and covers a surface area of 145 square kilometres. The Property is located approximately 80 kilometres west, by road, from the country's third largest city, Kankan.

An exploration permit for the Property was granted by the Ministere des Mines et de la Geologie on August 20, 2013. As part of its due diligence, Blox obtained a legal opinion which confirmed that the license remains in good standing. It is the Company's intention to obtain an exploitation permit, which would give the Company the exclusive right to mine and dispose of minerals for 15 years, with a possible 5 year extension. The Company has already commenced work on the feasibility study required for obtaining this permit.

In consideration for the acquisition of the interest in the Property, the Company has paid US$107,142.86 to BGL and US$42,857.14 to EML and issued BGL and EML an aggregate of 6,514,350 shares of common stock of the Company (the "First Tranche Shares"), at a deemed price of $0.1765 per share, for an aggregate deemed value of US$1,150,000. The First Tranche Shares were issued to BGL and EML in the proportions of 71.43% and 28.57%, respectively. Within 14 days of commercial gold production being publicly declared from ore mined from the Property, the Company will issue BGL and EML a second tranche of shares of common stock of the Company (the "Second Tranche Shares"). The number of Second Tranche Shares to be issued shall be calculated by dividing US$1,150,000 by the volume weighted average share price of the Company's common stock over a 20 day period preceding the issuance date. The Second Tranche Shares shall be issued to BGL and EML in the proportions of 71.43% and 28.57%, respectively.

"The acquisition of Mansounia marks a significant milestone for the Company", says Blox President and CEO, Robert Abenante. "Mansounia is the first mining acquisition Blox has completed and it is expected to be the foundation for our green mining company."

The acquisition of the interest in the Property is expected to complement the Company's proposed acquisition of Quivira Gold Ltd. ("Quivira") pursuant to agreements entered into in June 2013. The closing of the acquisition of Quivira is expected to expand the Company's mining business by adding the Pramkese, Osenase and Asamankese gold and diamond properties, a production royalty on the Grumesa-Awisam concession in Ghana, and 7% equity in a future joint venture on the Kwatechi concession in Ghana.

"This is the beginning of an exciting growth phase for the Company", adds Mr. Abenante. "I firmly believe the stage is set for the Company to add significant value to its entire asset base over the next few years, and the Company intends to remain invested to capitalise on that growth."

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation.

Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
