MONT-ST-HILAIRE, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 08/25/14 -- Mr. Renaud Hinse, President and Chief Executive Officer of Abcourt Mines Inc. (TSX VENTURE: ABI)(BERLIN: AML)(FRANKFURT: AML) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that substantial progress was made in mine development at the Elder gold mine in the July 2013 - June 2014 period. This gold mine is located near Rouyn-Noranda, in Abitibi, Quebec, Canada.
Since the beginning of the mine development period in May 2013, 46 500 tonnes of mineralized material were extracted from the mine and 43,346 tonnes were treated at the Aurbec mill. At the end of the period, there were 3,000 tonnes of mineralization stockpiled in part at the mine and in part at the mill. The treated material had a grade of 4.90 grams of gold per tonne.
At the mill, 6,618.8 ounces of gold and 2,768.3 ounces of silver were recovered. Gold was sold at an average price of CAN$1,380 per ounce and silver was sold at an average price of CAN$ 21.72 per ounce. The proceeds from the sales totaled CAN$ 9,192,191, for an average of $ 212.06 per tonne of mineralization.
On the 8th level, the exploration drift to the west outlined a narrow zone of mineralization with an average of 6.66 grams of gold per tonne over an average width of 1.28 meter for a distance of 20 meters. In the last face of the drift, a 0.4-meter vein with a grade of 50.16 grams of gold per tonne, was exposed and in the roof of the drift, another band of mineralization with an average grade of 5.59 grams of gold per tonne over a width of 1.83 meter and a length of 20 meters was found. The drift will be extended to find the extension of these veins. Stoping will start when the full extent of these veins will be known.
In the three stopes that we have on the 7th level, we have found additional gold mineralization in the roof and in the floor of stopes. These stopes were expected to have a height of 2 to 3 meters, but in some places, we have found as much as 7 meters of mineralization. This additional mineralization will eventually be reflected in a revised calculation of resources. However, because of the additional height in stopes, we had to re-inforce the pillars and this work had the effect of retarding the production in these stopes during the April - June 2014 quarter. During this quarter, 7,470 tonnes were extracted from the mine, compared to the 12,500 tonnes extracted in the previous quarter. This decrease in production was only temporary. Things are back to normal and we will add a second shift soon to increase production.
We continue to use the Aurbec mil to treat our mineralization and the latter will be available until October. Meanwhile, we have negotiated an agreement with another company to treat our mineralization for the September 2014 - March 2015 period. Morever, we are looking for a mill to purchase.
We are satisfied with the progress made in the July 2013 - June 2014 period and we expect to reach full production (12,500 tonnes / month) at the end of calendar 2014.

Security, data privacy, reliability, and regulatory compliance are critical factors when evaluating whether to move business applications from in-house, client-hosted environments to a cloud platform. Quality assurance plays a vital role in ensuring that the appropriate level of risk assessment, verification, and validation takes place to ensure business continuity during the migration to a new cloud platform.

Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

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.

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.

Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
