VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/17/17 -- Revelo Resources Corp. ("Revelo" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RVL) is pleased to announce that it has signed a Letter of Intent ("LOI") with Austral Gold Ltd ("Austral") (TSX VENTURE:AGLD), allowing Austral to purchase Revelo's gold-silver projects at San Guillermo and Reprado located in northern Chile, in exchange for common shares in Austral and a royalty on future production from the projects. The agreement is subject to due diligence and the signing of definitive documentation in Chile within 90 days and regulatory and exchange approvals.

The LOI allows Austral to gain a 100% interest in the San Guillermo and Reprado projects in exchange for:

--  10,000,000 common shares in Austral, currently valued at approximately
    C$1.5M; 
    --  A value cap of US$2.11M will be applied to the transaction, and the
        number of shares correspondingly reduced should AGLD's volume-
        weighted average market price ("VWAP") on the Toronto Venture
        Exchange (TSX VENTURE:AGLD) for the twenty (20) trading day period
        ending on the last trading day immediately prior to the Completion
        Date, cause the value of the transaction to exceed this amount;
--  1% NSR Royalty on future production at Reprado; and 
--  0.5% NSR Royalty on future production at San Guillermo.

The existing Option, Sale and Royalty Agreement between Revelo and Austral relating to the San Guillermo project (See Company's news release dated February 8, 2016) will be cancelled concurrent with the signing of the definitive sale agreement. Austral will also assume responsibility for paying underlying NSR production royalties at San Guillermo to Minera Fuego and SQM in Chile, and an underlying NSR production royalty at Reprado to Teck in Chile.

Tim Beale, President and CEO of Revelo, commented: "This is an important development for Revelo as it shows how we plan to advance the Company's portfolio by identifying distinctive strategies for each of our projects. Austral is a dynamic, junior precious metals producer, with significant potential for growth in Chile and Argentina. Revelo is now linked to Austral's future success, and we believe that further collaborations may be possible in the future."

ABOUT SAN GUILLERMO AND REPRADO

San Guillermo and Reprado are located along the Paleocene mineral belt in central-northern Chile, in a similar geological setting to, and some 120 km south-southwest of, the important precious metals mineral district at El Penon (Yamana Gold), which has produced several million ounces of gold and hundreds of millions of ounces of silver over the last 20 years or so. The projects are located some 66 km east-southeast and east respectively of the coastal town of Taltal, at modest altitudes, close to the Pan-American Highway, and have easy access.

Both San Guillermo and Reprado comprise geologic extensions to the Amancaya precious metals vein deposits where Austral's newest gold-silver mine is slated to produce approximately 50,000 gold equivalent oz per year. Amancaya and its extensions represent an emerging epithermal gold-silver quartz-vein district with geological similarities to the El Penon mining district to the north. The properties are prospective for high-grade, vein-style, epithermal precious metals mineralisation of low-sulphidation type, and several low-sulphidation epithermal (quartz-adularia-illite related) gold and silver vein targets occur on both properties, and in both cases have in part been tested by historic trenching and drilling with encouraging results.

San Guillermo surrounds Amancaya and is host to demonstrable extensions to the precious metals vein district emerging at Amancaya, with several high-grade veins cut in drill holes to the north and south on Revelo's property. The Reprado project area is centred less than 20 km due north and lies directly along trend from the centre of the vein district at Amancaya and San Guillermo, and is also host to mineralised precious metals veins cut in trenches and shallow, historic drill holes (See Company's news releases dated December 14, 2015 and December 21, 2015).

For further details please refer to the San Guillermo and Reprado project pages on Revelo's website (San Guillermo and Reprado).

Dr. Demetrius Pohl, Ph.D., Certified Professional Geoscientist (CPG), an independent consultant, is the Company's Qualified Person for the purposes of National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosures for Mineral Projects of the Canadian Securities Administrators, and has approved the written disclosure of the technical information contained in this news release.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation.

Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
