Beaufield acquires 50% of the Launay property

MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 07/17/17 -- Beaufield Resources Inc. ("Beaufield") (TSX VENTURE: BFD) is pleased to announce that Melkior Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE: MKR) has agreed to sell and transfer to Beaufield an undivided 50% interest in the Launay gold property (the "Property"), so that Beaufield will have thereafter an undivided 100% interest in the Property.

Under the terms of the purchase agreement, Beaufield has purchased a 50% interest in the Property for $125,000 in cash and the issuance of 2,500,000 of its common shares subject to a four month hold period. Melkior also retains a 1.5% net smelter royalty ("NSR") on the Property with a buyback provision for half of such royalty (i.e. 0.75%) by Beaufield for $750,000. The transaction is subject to approval by the TSX Venture Exchange.

The Property is located in Launay township, in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt in Quebec. Several gold zones have been defined by historical work over a 3 kilometre trend on the property. In 2013, a drill program on one of these zones identified wide intersections of gold mineralization located near surface:

--  3.92 g/t gold over 13.40 metres in hole LAY-15-2013 (January 13th, 2014
    Melkior's news release)


--  6.20 g/t Gold over 10.50 metres in hole LAY-20-2013 (February 18th, 2014
    Melkior's news release)


--  4.04 g/t gold over 15.52 metres in hole LAY-21-2013 (March 18th, 2014
    Melkior's news release).

The gold zones are coincident with a north-south striking magnetic axis dipping to the west between 65 to 80 degrees. The mineralization consists of auriferous pyrite grains disseminated in an altered granitic intrusive and within quartz-carbonate veins.

Drilling to date has focused on the near surface portion of the property with very few holes attaining depths greater than 300 metres. Mineralization remains open at depth and along strike. Additional drilling will be required at depth and between the known gold zones to determine the true extent of the mineralization.

Infrastructure is excellent, with both a highway and railway crossing the property. Electricity is also readily available with several towns located within a 30 kilometre radius. At least five operating gold mills are located within 70 kilometres of the Property.

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. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). 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...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
