Argonaut Exploration Inc. Samples Untested Gold from Surface Rock Samples to 65.9 Grams / Tonne at Terrace, B.C.

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/29/14 -- Argonaut Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:AGA) ("Argonaut" or "the Company") releases 2014 sample results. Argonaut Exploration Inc. investigates untested gold mineralization at surface on the Company's Columario Gold Mine property. Several samples were collected by company personnel in late summer, 2014 from different locations including sulphide-bearing quartz vein sub-outcrop samples from the historic Valhalla vein, loose sulphide-bearing quartz vein talus from the upper mine road fill and a 17.4 kilogram bulk soil sample collected from an upper mine road cross-trench with approximate dimensions 3.66 meters (m) long by 12.7 centimeters (cm) wide by 7.6 cm deep. The results are presented in Tables 1 and 2.

Argonaut has commenced testing through sample analysis the hypothesis that mined and unprocessed mineralized quartz vein muck was deposited in front of the tunnel portals during the mine tunnel development period from 1927 to 1933. This period of development was prior to the building of the mine's 100 ton per day flotation mill in 1934 (British Columbia ARIS Assessment report 17551).

Based on the sample results and with further verification, it is increasingly apparent that Argonaut's upper mine road switchbacks that access five mine tunnels may potentially be located on a mixture of talus and non-transported ore muck.

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
