Underground drilling at the Oracle Ridge project was initiated in June 2012 and continued in the third quarter. Oracle Mining continues to work on a program at the Oracle Ridge project designed to validate the existing historical technical database. 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.

Big Data engines are powering a lot of service businesses right now. Data is collected from users from wearable technologies, web behaviors, purchase behavior as well as several arbitrary data points we’d never think of. The demand for faster and bigger engines to crunch and serve up the data to services is growing exponentially. You see a LOT of correlation between “Cloud” and “Big Data” but on Big Data and “Hybrid,” where hybrid hosting is the sanest approach to the Big Data Infrastructure pro...

We all know the latest numbers: Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2016, up 30 percent from last year, and will reach 20.8 billion by 2020. We're rapidly approaching a data production of 40 zettabytes a day – more than we can every physically store, and exabytes and yottabytes are just around the corner. For many that’s a good sign, as data has been proven to equal money – IF it’s ingested, integrated, and analyzed fast enough. Without real-ti...
I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
