Oracle Mining Signs Coordination and Collection Agreements With U.S. Forest Service

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/08/14 -- Oracle Mining Corp. ("Oracle Mining" or the "Corporation") (TSX: OMN)(FRANKFURT: OMC) is pleased to announce that it has signed Coordination and Collection Agreements (the "Agreements") with the U.S. Forest Service.

The Agreements have been completed between the U.S. Forest Service, Coronado National Forest, and Oracle Mining's wholly owned subsidiary Oracle Ridge Mining, LLC, relating to its Oracle Ridge copper project ("Oracle Ridge" or "Oracle Ridge Project"), located 24 km northeast of Tucson, AZ. The Agreements permit the U.S. Forest Service, Coronado National Forest, to complete the review of the Corporation's Preliminary Draft Environmental Assessment (PDEA) and Plan of Operations, which Oracle Mining believes will culminate in approval of our activities on U.S. Forest Service lands.

The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Coordination Agreement defines a working relationship between Oracle Mining and the Forest Service that will facilitate a third-party NEPA compliance review of the PDEA for the Oracle Ridge Project. The Forest Service will select a third-party environmental consultant to review the PDEA and its supporting documentation and to finalize the NEPA review of the Project Plan of Operations. Oracle Mining will have input regarding selection of the consultant and will fund the NEPA review through a contractual agreement directly with the consultant. The Collection Agreement states that the Corporation will compensate the U.S. Forest Service for the cost of providing oversight and technical direction to the consultant.

The Agreements are the most recent stage of permitting the Oracle Ridge Project. Oracle Mining continues to move forward with permitting the Project and the following details the current status of major permits related to the development of Oracle Ridge to date:

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year.

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
