Concurrently, the Corporation continues to work towards obtaining the necessary permits with respect to the Oracle Ridge project located near Tucson, Arizona.

In July 2012 we received the Pima County Stage II Air Quality Installation and Operating Permit. The amended Aquifer Protection Permit ("APP") is under technical review and a draft permit is expected to be issued for public comment by or about the end of 2012.

Also in July 2012, we announced that we had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (the "MOU") with Pima County for the development of the Mine. The County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a resolution in support of our proposal to re-open the Oracle Ridge mine, and also approved and ratified the MOU. Pursuant to the MOU, we intend to exchange approximately 133 acres of private land for certain Pima County land that lies between the mine site and the tailings facility and that is necessary for the purposes of constructing, operating and maintaining conveyance pipelines, utilities and portions of a road for the Oracle Ridge project site. Further, we intend to provide at least an additional 300 acres of land to Pima County as mitigation for potential disturbances related to the operation of the Oracle Ridge project.

All financial information for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 is prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") and reported in United States dollars unless otherwise noted, including this media release.

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.
You think you know what’s in your data. But do you? Most organizations are now aware of the business intelligence represented by their data. Data science stands to take this to a level you never thought of – literally. The techniques of data science, when used with the capabilities of Big Data technologies, can make connections you had not yet imagined, helping you discover new insights and ask new questions of your data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sarbjit Sarkaria, data science team lead ...
WebRTC is bringing significant change to the communications landscape that will bridge the worlds of web and telephony, making the Internet the new standard for communications.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Leo Papadopoulos, CTO of Cloud9, discussed the importance of WebRTC and how it enables companies to focus o...
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
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.
