YELLOWKNIFE, NORTHWEST TERRITORIES -- (Marketwired) -- 08/18/14 -- TerraX Minerals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TXR)(FRANKFURT:TX0)(PINKSHEETS:TRXXF) has received the assay results from a further 113 samples of the approximately 960 surface samples taken during a six week prospecting and mapping program now completed at the Yellowknife City Gold Project ("YCGP") just north of Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories. Assay results are still pending or being interpreted from the remaining samples taken from prospective gold and base metal targets at the YCGP, as well as from drilling recently completed at the Crestaurum and Barney mesothermal gold targets in the southern portion of the property, and will be announced when available.
This sampling reported today was completed by two senior geologists provided by Virginia Mines Inc. during mapping of a 1.3 km (N-S) x 650 m (E-W) area immediately west of Homer Lake in the northern part of the YCGP, with 99 grab and chip samples collected for assay and an additional 14 samples collected for whole rock analysis. Assay results ranged from below detection to 6.61 g/t gold, below detection to 357 g/t silver, 3 ppm to 1.51% copper, 9 ppm to 7.02% zinc, and 5 ppm to greater than 20% lead. Two metal domains are apparent: a gold +/- copper domain to the west and a gold-silver-lead-zinc domain to the east.
These 113 samples complement the 150 grab and chip samples assayed in 2013 and the four holes drilled by TerraX in early 2014. Collectively, this information produces a preliminary picture of this prospective area which contains widespread mineralization. Of the 249 samples assayed, 102 contain Au greater than 0.25 g/t, 46 contain Au greater than 1 g/t; 142 samples contain in excess of 5 g/t Ag and 53 have more than 40 g/t Ag; 100 samples have more than 0.25% Pb of which 57 have more than 1%; 56 samples have greater than 0.25% Zn and 30 have greater than 1% Zn. Cu anomalism is much more restricted, with only 7 samples having greater than 0.25% Cu. Maps showing the distribution of mineralization at Homer Lake are available on our website at www.terraxminerals.com.
Detailed mapping of the predominantly mafic stratigraphy reveals alternating massive and pillowed facies, defining a northwesterly trend which is probably the approximate stratigraphic trend. The mafic rocks have been intruded by a north-northeast trending quartz porphyry interpreted by the Virginia geologists as a variably sericitized and chloritized subvolcanic intrusion. Mineralization occurs in bands within and along the edge of the quartz porphyry, associated with subparallel structures, and in northwest features along possible flow and sill contacts.
A strong metal zonation is apparent, with two discrete domains separated by a northeast trending lineament that does not contain any outcrops. This lineament also separates dominantly massive flows in the west from pillowed and massive flows in the east, and is interpreted by Virginia geologists as a major fault. All of the greater than 0.25% zinc values, all but one of the greater than 0.25% lead values and the vast majority of the greater than 40 g/t silver values occur in the eastern domain. The two greater than 1% copper values occur in the western domain. Anomalous to ore grade gold is evenly distributed between the two domains; the result is a gold-copper domain in the west and a gold-silver-lead-zinc domain in the east. These domains were tested by two drill holes each in April, 2014, prior to their recognition. Holes TNB14-001 and 002 tested an electromagnetic anomaly in the western domain. The anomaly was determined to be caused by pyrrhotite and lesser chalcopyrite stringers. By contrast, holes TNB14-003 and 004 were drilled under the main trench in the eastern domain. These holes intersected high grade polymetallic zones surrounded by lower grade, but still polymetallic, mineralization. The best result was from hole TNB14-004, which returned 3.42 m @ 3.41 g/t Au, 69.3 g/t Ag, 3.67% Pb and 3.17% Zn within a wider zone of 71.15 m @ 0.25 g/t Au, 14.0 g/t Ag, 0.73% Pb and 0.57% Zn (see news release of May 12, 2014).
TerraX thus has two distinct targets at Homer Lake: i) a gold-copper target in the west, with known mineralization associated with pyrrhotite and chalcopyrite stringers and an electromagnetic signature; and ii) structurally controlled gold-silver-lead-zinc mineralization in the eastern part of the area. The high grade structural target is enhanced by the presence of a lower grade envelope of mineralization. Both targets have good size potential. The origin of the two mineralization styles has not yet been determined, but both are considered worthy of further drill testing.
Joe Campbell, President of TerraX states, "The Homer Lake mineralization has now been traced at surface over a strike length of approximately 1.5 km and has been intersected by TerraX drilling to 150 m vertical depth from surface, in historical drilling to greater than 300 m vertical depth, and mineralization remains open down-dip from this drilling. The nature of the mineralization remains unclear (synvolcanic or epigenetic), but the large areal extent and high polymetallic grades provides us with an excellent base metal target to supplement the numerous gold targets that are the primary focus of TerraX's exploration on the YCGP."
Sampling included insertion of certified standards and blanks into the stream of samples for chemical analysis. Samples were prepared at ALS Chemex's laboratory in Yellowknife and shipped to their Vancouver facility for gold and ICP analysis. ALS is a certified and accredited laboratory service. It should be noted that, due to their selective nature, assay results from grab samples may not be indicative of the overall grade and extent of mineralization in the subject area.

About the Yellowknife City Gold Project
The Yellowknife City Gold Project encompasses 9,349 hectares of contiguous land immediately north of the City of Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories and includes TerraX's wholly-owned Northbelt property acquired in February 2013.
The project lies on the prolific Yellowknife greenstone belt, and covers 15 km of strike length on the northern extension of the shear system that hosts the high-grade Con and Giant gold mines. The project is host to multiple shears that are the recognized hosts for gold deposits in the Yellowknife gold district and contains innumerable gold showings and historic high grade drill results. Since January 2013, TerraX has consolidated the project area by acquiring and optioning numerous properties, including: Northbelt, Goodwin, Ryan Lake, Walsh Lake, and U-Breccia, as well as staking additional contiguous lands. Being all-season road accessible and within 15 km of the City of Yellowknife, YCPG is close to vital infrastructure, including: supplies, service providers, power, water, and skilled tradespeople.

Cloud computing is unquestionably one of the driving forces of DevOps, as the automation of operations transforms enterprise software development. DevOps, however, is more than a technology trend, as it represents a move toward silo-busting, self-organizing horizontal teams that drive business velocity. At the same time, enterprise Digital Transformation represents an upheaval across the enterprise, as customer preferences and behavior drive enterprise technology decisions. This transformation ...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
