Troymet Reviews Wildcat Drill Plans

NANAIMO, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 12/01/16 -- Troymet Exploration Corp. (TSX VENTURE: TYE) ("Troymet" or the Company") is pleased to review plans for follow up drilling of holes WC16-08 and WC16-09 in the SE Target Area of the Wildcat gold project, Utah, held under option from Renaissance Gold Inc. (TSX VENTURE: REN). Troymet's initial exploration in the SE Target Area, in 2015, pointed to the likelihood of untested/undrilled precious metal mineralization at shallow depths associated with anomalous soil and rock chip geochemistry (News Release of November 24, 2015). The Company is pleased that its exploration model/target of shallow gold mineralization, in prospective silty limestones, concealed at shallow depths over an approximately 1 km2 area, has been validated with the intersection of significant elevated to anomalous gold in holes WC16-08 and WC16-09. These are the first holes drilled in this highly prospective district. Further drilling is required to establish the size and grade of this mineralization and to test for possible high-grade feeder zones. Parallels can be drawn with the Long Canyon gold deposit in northeast Nevada in that silty limestones carry Carlin-style gold mineralization beneath limestones that are nearly devoid of gold mineralization.

Hole WC16-08 intersected a long run of anomalous gold in the uppermost part of the Big Horse member (Figure 1). Anomalous mercury, tellurium and antimony broadly coincide with the anomalous gold interval (Figure 2). The feeder for this mineralization has not yet been identified. However, the extension of the structure with mineralization in WC16-09 lies 65 metres to the northeast and it may be the feeder for the mineralization in WC16-08 (Figure 5). Hole WC16-09 intersected anomalous gold near the bottom of the hole (7.0 metres of 0.040 g/t Au from 152.4 to 159.4 metres), just before intersecting gold-mineralized material in a greater than 12-metre wide fault zone (Joy Fault?) where drilling stopped due to poor recovery related to friable and clay altered rock, and loss of sample material into open fractures (Figure 3). Nonetheless, grab and/or select chip samples with elevated to anomalous gold values were collected from contiguous samples in the structure, including distinctive ferruginous clay-rich siltstone chips assaying from 0.14 to 7.5 g/t Au. Tellurium is strongly anomalous in this hole, with 6.1 metres (53.3 - 59.4 metres) assaying 5.29 ppm Te that includes a zone of hydrothermal breccia, and 13.7 metres (83.8 to 97.5 metres) of 1.39 ppm Te.

The structure and mineralization in WC16-09 lie on the edge of an area of complex structure (Figure 4 and Figure 5). Prospective silty limestones and structures here could host significant gold mineralization as evidenced by the gold in holes WC16-08 and WC16-09. RTP is a technique that correctly positions the magnetic anomalies in map view. The tilt angle derivative is able to resolve shallow and deeper sources equally. In this way, a more complete and detailed picture of the magnetic signature of the target area is obtained.

The 2016 drill program utilized a reverse circulation (RC) drill. Poor sample recovery was experienced in a number of important holes including hole WC16-09, drilled on the Rattler Breccia, and holes WC16-05 and WC16-06 drilled on High Grade Hill (News Release of August 9, 2016). Troymet plans to re-drill the target areas originally tested by holes WC16-09 and WC16-05 with a diamond drill to ensure sample recovery. Gold mineralization in competent rock, as in hole WC16-08, can be further explored with RC drilling.

Managing mission-critical SAP systems and landscapes has never been easy. Add public cloud with its myriad of powerful cloud native services and this may not change any time soon. Public cloud offers exciting new possibilities for enterprise workloads. But to make use of these possibilities and capabilities, IT teams need to re-think everything they have done before. Otherwise, they will just end up using public cloud as a hosting platform for their workloads, aka known as “lift and shift.”
Multiple data types are pouring into IoT deployments. Data is coming in small packages as well as enormous files and data streams of many sizes. Widespread use of mobile devices adds to the total. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists looked at the tools and environments that are being put to use in IoT deployments, as well as the team skills a modern enterprise IT shop needs to keep things running, get a handle on all this data, and deliver...

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets?
