Reconnaissance Sampling, Including 10.9 g/t Gold, Confirms Exploration Potential at Pine Grove, Nevada

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/12/17 -- George W. Sanders, President of Goldcliff Resource Corporation (TSX VENTURE:GCN)(OTC PINK:GCFFF) (the Company) is pleased to report that recently received surface sampling gold values confirm the exploration potential of the Pine Grove property beyond the areas of the drilled resources. The current Measured and Indicated resource of 3,060,000 tonnes grading 1.37 g/t gold (Amended & Restated Technical Report, February 4, 2015 by Telesto) occurs in two distinct deposits, one on the Wilson patented claims and one on the Wheeler patented claims. Beyond the two patented claim blocks there are several areas of favourable rock type and structure that have strong exploration potential. The recent reconnaissance program confirms this potential and gold values returned are consistent with grades found in the Measured and Indicated resource.

Field work focused on the northern flank of a high ridge, approximately 3,000 ft (914 m) south of the Wheeler gold deposit. Sampling was concentrated on a steep ridge between two semi-parallel, north trending topographic lineaments that cut Jurassic granodiorite. Granodiorite is the preferred host rock at Pine Grove. Sixteen grab samples were collected from various old prospect dumps (early 1900's) along the steep ridge that were previously sampled by Teck Resources in the early 1990's and found to be anomalous in gold. Of the 16 samples collected by geologists for project operator Lincoln Mining Corporation, seven returned assays greater than 0.5 g/t gold. The anomalous gold samples returned values of 0.516, 0.638, 0.772, 1.31, 1.52, 1.91, and 10.9 g/t Au. The higher grade 10.9 g/t sample is consistent with Pine Grove mineralization where previous drilling has encountered zones of high grade including multi ounce values. Anomalous copper is also present and is a characteristic of the Pine Grove gold system. High copper values included 1410, 1435, 1775 ppm Cu and 1.83% and 2.75% Cu.

This new target area is on the Southern Cross lode claims and is 100% controlled by the Pine Grove Joint Venture. Goldcliff is earning a 40% Joint Venture interest from Lincoln Mining Corporation by spending US$ 1.4 million over three years. The Southern Cross target has not yet been trenched or drilled.

In early 2017, the Joint Venture will focus on detailed permitting and preparation of a Plan of Operations submission to State and Federal regulators. Assay results from the recent step out drill program on the Wilson patented claims should be received by the middle of the first quarter and will be incorporated into the resource data base. Permits will be prepared and submitted for exploration drilling on targets beyond the boundaries of the patented claims.

On December 20, 2016, the Company received notice from FINRA that Goldcliff shares can now be quoted for trading in the United States on the OTC Pink Sheets. The US trading symbol is GCFFF.

Jeffery Wilson, Vice President of Exploration of Lincoln Mining Corporation, and a Qualified Person under NI 43-101 has reviewed the technical disclosure contained in this news release.

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

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.
While many government agencies have embraced the idea of employing cloud computing as a tool for increasing the efficiency and flexibility of IT, many still struggle with large scale adoption. The challenge is mainly attributed to the federated structure of these agencies as well as the immaturity of brokerage and governance tools and models. Initiatives like FedRAMP are a great first step toward solving many of these challenges but there are a lot of unknowns that are yet to be tackled. In hi...

However, this same amount of flexibility also comes with the challenges of picking the right tool, on the right ...
The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market? In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, explored the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise. What are the key differences between wh...
One of the hottest areas in cloud right now is DRaaS and related offerings. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Dale Levesque, Disaster Recovery Product Manager with Windstream's Cloud and Data Center Marketing team, will discuss the benefits of the cloud model, which far outweigh the traditional approach, and how enterprises need to ensure that their needs are properly being met.
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. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight.

He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...
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...
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and containers together help companies achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of Dev...
