Savary's Hounde South Property's Preliminary Metallurgical Testing Indicates Gold Recoveries Averaged in Excess of 93% for Sulphide/Non-Oxidized Gold Mineralization

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 08/21/14 -- Savary Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE: SCA) ("Savary") reports the results of the preliminary metallurgical testing completed on seven samples from three of the four mineralized zones on Savary's Hounde South property (see Figure 1 for general location) in southwestern Burkina Faso. The property, which is accessible by paved highway, is located approximately 300 kilometres southwest of the Capital Ouagadougou, and 60 kilometres east of Bobo Dioulasso, the second largest city in Burkina Faso. Both rail and grid power come within approximately 65 kilometres of the Hounde South property.

A summary of significant cyanide bottle roll results, at 72 hours retention time, are as follows:


--  Kien - four samples average 95.4% gold recovery
--  Karangosso - two samples average 87.3% gold recovery
--  Kueredougou - one sample with 96.5% gold recovery

Don Dudek, Savary's President and CEO commented: "It was great to see confirmation of the non-refractory nature of the fresh rock gold mineralization in these preliminary metallurgical tests. This work further de-risks the project and when combined with the robust nature of these gold systems, I believe we will have a lot of good news to look forward to."

Each of the seven mineralized, fresh rock assay pulp samples (ground to 95% passing 106 micron) were first re-assayed and then subjected to timed bottle roll gold recovery, with a cyanide-rich fluid and tested for gold content after 12, 24, 36, 48 and 72 hours. Each of the samples was mixed with 2,000 millilitres of cyanide-bearing fluid with 40 millilitres of fluid (2%) drawn off at the various time intervals for testing of gold content. While this form of testing does not provide definitive gold recovery numbers, it does provide a good indication of the gold recovery through conventional gold recovery methods. Samples which displayed recoveries greater than 100% were reduced to 100% recovery in the summary above; these high recoveries likely result from assay variability due to the nuggetty nature of the gold mineralization in these systems. Gold recovery details are presented in the table below.

Joint Venture Agreement Update

Savary and Sarama are close to finalizing a Joint Venture agreement ("JV") which follows a Heads of Agreement ("HoA") which was signed on March 10, 2014 (see Savary news release dated March 11, 2014). This will unify the operatorship of Savary's 500 square kilometre Hounde South property and Sarama's 250 square kilometre Serakoro 1 property. The resultant JV company will be 65% owned by Savary and 35% owned by Sarama with Savary the operator as long as it controls a majority interest in the joint venture. The combined properties host a 50 kilometre and a 24 kilometre long, mining camp scale, envelope of gold-in-soil anomalies, which when tested, have returned numerous gold-bearing intercepts that will require follow-up (see figure 2).

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited.
