Coro Provides Update on Its Berta Project, Chile

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/05/12 -- Coro Mining Corp. (TSX:COP) ("Coro" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has completed preliminary metallurgical column test work at its Berta project, located 19km W of the village of Inca de Oro in the III Region of Chile. In addition, a NI-43-101 compliant independent resource estimate is expected to be completed shortly.

A total of 3 representative samples were collected; a high grade sample from a diamond drill hole; and a medium and a low grade sample from surface trenches. The trench samples had atypically low soluble copper ("CuS") grades due to surface weathering. The samples were sent to Geomet S.A. metallurgical laboratories in Santiago, Chile for compositing and test work, and subsamples taken for mineralogical categorization were sent to Mineralogia Aplicada a Metalurgia (M.A.M. Ltda.), also of Santiago. Four 2m columns were completed for each sample; one at P80 -3/4" and a second at P80 -3/8", with a duplicate for each crush size.

Summary leach results for the 3/8" columns are shown on Table 1, and leach kinetics and net acid consumption ("NAC") on Figures 1 & 2 (to view Figures 1 & 2 click on: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/cop115i.pdf).

This test work demonstrates that Berta oxide material may have rapid heap leach recoveries in excess of theoretical percent solubility due to the presence of significant copper wad which is soluble in the reducing, ferrous sulphate rich conditions of the column, but which did not report to the %CuS head assay.

Alan Stephens, President and CEO of Coro, commented, "We are pleased the test work indicates that 100% recovery of CuS, even of low grade material, may be achievable with approx. 15 kg/t NAC after 15 days. Actual heap leach recoveries and residence times would be partly a function of relative copper and acid prices. We are very encouraged by the results of this test work, and look forward to receiving the resource estimate shortly."

Sergio Rivera, Coro's Vice President of Exploration, a geologist with more than 30 years of experience and a member of the Colegio de Geologos de Chile and of the Instituto de Ingenieros de Minas de Chile, was responsible for the design and execution of the sampling program at Berta and is the Qualified Person for the purposes of NI 43-101. Alan Stephens, FIMMM, Coro's President and CEO, a geologist with more than 36 years of experience, and a Qualified Person for the purposes of NI 43-101, is responsible for the contents of this news release.

With the Apple Watch making its way onto wrists all over the world, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a staple in the workplace. In fact, Forrester reported that 68 percent of technology and business decision-makers characterize wearables as a top priority for 2015. Recognizing their business value early on, FinancialForce.com was the first to bring ERP to wearables, helping streamline communication across front and back office functions. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kevin Roberts, GM of Platform at FinancialForce.com, will discuss the value of business applications on wearable ...
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Lee Williams, a producer of the first smartphones and tablets, will talk about how he is now applying his experience in mobile technology to the design and development of the next generation of Environmental and Sustainability Services at ETwater. He will explain how M2M controllers work through wirelessly connected remote controls; and specifically delve into a retrofit option that reverse-engineers control codes of existing conventional controller systems so they don't have to be replaced and are instantly converted to become smart, connected devices.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, will discuss how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the data to create additional revenue streams, such as improved warranties or premium features.

Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, will introduce the technologies required for implementing these ideas and some early experiments performed in the Kurento open source software community in areas ...
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
