Oracle Mining Intercepts 47 Feet of 2.2% Copper in New Drilling; Additional Underground Holes Intercept 22.5 Feet of 2.4% Copper and 47.0 Feet of 2.0% Copper

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/31/13 -- Oracle Mining Corp. (TSX:OMN)(OTCQX:OMCCF)(FRANKFURT:OMC) ("Oracle Mining" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce assay results from its ongoing core drilling program. The assay results include seven additional underground drill hole results from drilling at the Oracle Ridge Copper Mine, located in southern Arizona.

The assay results disclosed by the Corporation to date are consistent with historical data. These holes were drilled as part of Oracle Mining's ongoing drilling program, the results of which will be included in a National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101") compliant resource estimation. The Corporation is analyzing the samples for a full suite of elements and have identified silver and gold as potential by-products.

Surface drill hole ODH-044 encountered an interval of 47.2 feet of 2.21% copper, including within that interval 10.0 feet of 3.92% copper and 0.9 oz/ton silver. Underground drill hole OUH-07 encountered an interval of 47.0 feet of 2.07% copper, including within that interval 10.0 feet of 4.85% copper and 1.05 oz/ton silver.

Oracle Mining has posted an updated diagram of all drill hole locations of these reported assay results at http://www.oracleminingcorp.com/_resources/images/2013_January_skarn.pdf.

The following tabulates the intervals obtained from this phase of the drilling program:

The intervals were calculated using a 1.0% copper cut-off and may include internal waste to reflect a potential mineable width. True widths of mineralized intercepts completed to date will need to be modelled but are estimated to be 60% to 100% of the stated interval length for Zones 1, 2 and 4. Additional drilling in Zones 5 and 6 will be needed before true thickness can be estimated. Intervals labelled "includes" are higher-grade portions of the previous listed interval.

Oracle Mining employs a rigorous QA/QC protocol on all aspects of sampling and analytical procedure. Drill core is checked, logged, marked for sampling and split in half. One-half of each drill core is maintained for future reference and the other half of each drill core is sent for analysis. Half-core samples are shipped to accredited laboratories contracted to complete all sample preparation and assaying, including Skyline Assayer and Laboratories (Tucson), SGS Minerals Services (Elko/Vancouver) and ALS Chemex Labs Ltd. (Reno/Vancouver). Samples are analyzed employing the appropriate methodology for analyses of copper, as well as fire assaying for silver and gold. For QA/QC purposes, the Corporation inserts one standard sample for every 20 samples of core and one blank sample for every 40 samples of core submitted to the assay laboratories. The Corporation inserts a blank sample for core for any submission with fewer than 40 samples. Oracle Mining periodically submits the pulps of the samples assayed by one laboratory to another independent laboratory for check analysis.

Clark & Associates Limited, a consultant for Oracle Mining and a Qualified Person under NI 43-101, who is responsible for the technical information reported herein.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
21st International Cloud Expo, taking place October 31 - November 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Me...
Recently, WebRTC has a lot of eyes from market. The use cases of WebRTC are expanding - video chat, online education, online health care etc. Not only for human-to-human communication, but also IoT use cases such as machine to human use cases can be seen recently. One of the typical use-case is remote camera monitoring. With WebRTC, people can have interoperability and flexibility for deploying monitoring service. However, the benefit of WebRTC for IoT is not only its convenience and interopera...
WebRTC is great technology to build your own communication tools. It will be even more exciting experience it with advanced devices, such as a 360 Camera, 360 microphone, and a depth sensor camera. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Masashi Ganeko, a manager at INFOCOM Corporation, will introduce two experimental projects from his team and what they learned from them. "Shotoku Tamago" uses the robot audition software HARK to track speakers in 360 video of a remote party. "Virtual Teleport" uses a...

WebRTC is the future of browser-to-browser communications, and continues to make inroads into the traditional, difficult, plug-in web communications world. The 6th WebRTC Summit continues our tradition of delivering the latest and greatest presentations within the world of WebRTC. Topics include voice calling, video chat, P2P file sharing, and use cases that have already leveraged the power and convenience of WebRTC.
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...
