War Eagle Provides Update on Tres Marias Mine Development

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/25/14 -- War Eagle Mining Company Inc. (TSX VENTURE:WAR) ("War Eagle" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has received the second payment (US$35,000) from the sale of the Tres Marias zinc-lead-germanium project in Chihuahua, Mexico to Contratista y Operaciones Mineras SA de CV ("COMSA"), a Mexican mining company, previously announced on January 16, 2014. Total cash consideration for the sale was US$5,000,000 of which the next payment to War Eagle is to be US$300,000 in January 2015.

In addition to making this payment, COMSA has reported that it is making excellent progress on advancing the Tres Marias project towards production. Activities over the past six months in this regard include:


--  COMSA continues to occupy and maintain the various office, accommodation
    and warehouse facilities previously maintained by War Eagle when it was
    advancing its work on Tres Marias and continues to maintain all mineral
    concessions and permits (including the explosive permit) in good
    standing with the Mexican authorities and has located two sites for the
    processing of the extracted Tres Marias mineralized material (crushing,
    loading, concentration) prior to transportation to a smelter; 
--  Repairs and remediation work on equipment and facilities at the mine
    site, including service to the head frame, repair and installation of
    the ore hopper and winch, all of which facilitates access and extraction
    of Tres Marias zinc-lead-germanium mineralized material; 
--  In mid-July two crews arrived on site to begin underground
    rehabilitation work, including underground access and underground
    installations such as warehouse, machine shop and office/comfort
    stations; 
--  Three smelters have expressed interest in purchasing material from Tres
    Marias with negotiations expected to be completed once greater
    confidence in the amounts of material to be shipped from the mine is
    confirmed; 
--  COMSA is in the final stages of preparation for submission of its permit
    to mine at Tres Marias and has been in close liaison with government
    officials in the preparation of this document. The timing of receipt of
    this permit cannot be determined at this time; however COMSA remains
    confident that, with the underground work advancing as it presently is,
    production can be achieved as quickly as 6 to 8 weeks from receipt of
    the mining permit; and 
--  As of June 30, 2014, COMSA had spent approximately US$65,000 in mine
    site related activities, in addition COMSA has paid US$100,000 to WAR
    Eagle since the signing of the sale agreement t. 

President and CEO of War Eagle, Thomas R. Atkins, commented on the progress at the Tres Marias project, stating: "COMSA is doing everything I believe any mine contractor would do to advance the Tres Marias project in as timely a manner as possible to enable the extraction of mineralized material. Management of War Eagle is pleased with the progress COMSA is making which gives us confidence in their ability to continue to fulfill the financial obligations to War Eagle for the sale of the Tres Marias project. The Company looks forward to keeping shareholders apprised of future progress."

As the rapid adoption of containers continues, companies are finding that they lack the operational tools to understand the behavior of applications deployed in these containers, and how to identify issues in their application infrastructure.

In the case of an application outage, what was the root cause of the outage?
