Dunav Resources Announces a Significant Inferred Resource Estimate for its Tulare Copper-Gold Porphyry Project

300,500,000 tonnes grading an average of 0.27% copper and 0.26g/t gold for 1.8 billion pounds of copper and 2.5 million ounces of gold

LONGUEUIL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 11/26/12 -- Dunav Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:DNV) (the "Company" or "Dunav") is pleased to announce the initial resource estimate for the Kiseljak project area, part of its Tulare Copper-Gold Porphyry Project located in Southern Serbia.

The Kiseljak mineral resource, prepared by AMC Consultants Limited (UK) ("AMC"), an independent mining consulting firm, has been estimated at 300,500,000 tonnes grading an average of 0.27% copper and 0.26g/t gold in the inferred resource category for 1.8 billion pounds of copper and 2.5 million ounces of gold, using a 0.25% copper equivalent cut-off.

A summary of the Kiseljak Inferred mineral resource estimate using various cut-offs is tabulated below:

1.  The effective date of the mineral resource estimate is November 22,
2.  The copper price used in this estimate is the mean of monthly average
    London Metal Exchange copper spot prices for 2010, 2011 and 2012 and is
    $3.60/lb. The gold price used in this estimate is the mean of the
    monthly average spot gold prices for 2010, 2011 and 2012 and is
3.  The copper and gold equivalent cut offs, used by Dunav, are based on the
    in situ grades, using the following formulas: 
    --  (Using a gold price of US$48.23/gramme and a copper price of
        US$79.356/per cent) 
    --  Cu_eq = ((Au(i)48.23)+(Cu(i)79.356))/79.356 
    --  Au_eq = ((Au(i)48.23)+(Cu(i)79.356))/48.23 
4.  Second phase, extensive metallurgical test work is nearing completion
    and, based on information to date, along with possible projected
    throughput rates for the Copper-Gold Tulare Porphyry Project, typical
    mining costs and a range of processing costs and indicative ranges of
    processing recoveries it is, at this stage, believed by Dunav that
    possible cut off grades lie in the range of 0.15% CuEq to 0.25% CuEq. 
5.  Mineral resources, which are not mineral reserves, do not have
    demonstrated economic viability. The estimate of mineral resources may
    be materially affected by environmental, permitting, legal, title,
    taxation, sociopolitical, marketing, or other relevant issues. 
6.  The quantity and grade of reported inferred resources in this estimation
    are uncertain in nature and there has been insufficient exploration to
    define these inferred resources as indicated or measured mineral
7.  Totals and average grades are subject to rounding to the appropriate

The Tulare Copper-Gold Porphyry Project comprises several porphyry copper-gold targets including Kiseljak, Yellow Creek, Trlica and Calovica vis South and also includes the Bakrenjaca carbonate-base metal epithermal vein system; all target areas are located within 3,000 meters of the Kiseljak deposit. Dunav controls 100% of this newly identified porphyry cluster, located within the Lece Volcanic Complex.

G Mining Services Inc. (Montreal) have been contracted to manage the Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) of the Tulare Copper-Gold Porphyry Project.


Drilling and Sampling

--  The Kiseljak resource estimate is based on 71 diamond drill holes, as at
    25th October 2012. Details of the drilling and sampling program, at the
    time of the database handover, are summarised in the table below.

--  Figure 1 shows the location of the Kiseljak deposit within the Tulare
    Copper-Gold Porphyry Project, whilst Figure 2 displays the drilling
    carried out to date (23rd November 2012) at Kiseljak. Figure 3 shows a
    typical cross section through the Kiseljak deposit. 
--  Diamond drilling has been carried out such that drill holes are always
    started using PQ core and then reduced to HQ triple tube (HQ3) once
    competent rock has been intersected. The diamond drill core size is kept
    as HQ or HQ3 for as long as possible. Drill core is carefully packed for
    transport to the sample processing facility in Tulare. Once the diamond
    core has been processed (including photography, geotechnical and
    geological logging, magnetic susceptibility measurement etc.) it is then
    transported to SGS Bor for sample preparation and analysis. 
--  The average core recovery is 94% in total. 
--  Drill hole collars were surveyed by differential GPS (DGPS) by staff
    surveyors (registered independent surveyors regularly audit Dunav's
    survey control and procedures). All drill hole collar locations were
    surveyed by DGPS. 
--  The diamond drill holes were down hole surveyed, on average, every 30
    meters using electronic survey equipment. 
--  Kiseljak has been drilled on a nominal 80 meter by 80 meter grid
--  Diamond core sampling has been carried out using Dunav's detailed
    protocols throughout the entire drilling program. 

Density Measurements

--  Density measurements are routinely taken every three meters down hole
    from diamond drill core. The bulk density of the drill core segments is
    measured at the SGS managed laboratory at Bor using the industry
    standard wax-seal immersion method. The table below summarises the large
    number of density measurements for each rock type in the Kiseljak drill
    hole data set that have been collected and measured to date. The density
    data has been used for variographic analysis and ordinary kriging
    estimation in order to estimate the tonnage factors in the block model.

Resource and Grade Modelling

--  Detailed interpretation of the geological and grade data has resulted in
    the modelling of 5 main zones of copper-gold mineralization.

--  Resource estimation has been completed using the geostatistical
    estimation technique, Ordinary Kriging ("OK"). Bulk density has been
    estimated into the block model using ordinary kriging. Five main
    mineralized zones were defined, hosted within mineralized porphyries and
    mineralized basement rocks. Following statistical assessment, no upper
    cuts were applied. 
--  The search parameters used during Cu, Au and S grade estimation are
    summarised in the following table. A three-pass estimation approach was
    used in order to populate the mineralized zones with grade and density
    estimates, wherein the search ranges were steadily increased until the
    mineralized wireframes were filled with grade estimates. The minimum
    number of composites per hole was restricted to 6 composites, such that
    a minimum of two holes was required for a block estimate.

Grade-Tonnage Reporting

--  The Kiseljak mineral resource was estimated using the Canadian Institute
    of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM), CIM Standards on Mineral
    Resources and Reserves, Definitions and Guidelines prepared by the CIM
    Standing Committee on Reserve Definitions and adopted by CIM Council.
    The in-situ resource estimate is within the defined mineralized
    wireframes and is reported at a range of lower cut off grades. A
    comprehensive, second phase of metallurgical test work, to follow up on
    the work carried out in 2008, is being completed and will be used with
    the PEA to define the appropriate cut-off grade for the Tulare Copper-
    Gold Porphyry Project (Kiseljak). The PEA has been initiated and is
    being managed by G Mining Services Inc. of Montreal. 
--  The Kiseljak resource model has been categorized as Inferred Resources
    using the CIM Standards on Mineral Resources and Reserves, Definitions
    and Guidelines (November 2010). Follow up, targeted drilling will be
    planned to confirm the current geological interpretation, along with
    collection of additional assay data, in order to facilitate the
    elevation of the resource category from Inferred to Indicated. 
--  In the table below the reported tonnes, grade and contained gold have
    been rounded to the appropriate level of precision for the reporting of
    an Inferred Resource, and the numbers may not correlate exactly due to
    rounding errors.

Preliminary metallurgical test work on diamond drill core samples from Kiseljak, carried out in 2008 at SGS Lakefield in Toronto, Canada, has indicated that very high copper and gold recoveries are potentially achievable using typical grind sizes. Excellent flotation recovery characteristics were exhibited for both copper and gold, and a copper-gold concentrate with no deleterious elements was produced. A portion of the gold mineralization is recoverable by standard gravity methods, potentially enhancing the overall gold recovery. Preliminary grinding test work showed a medium to soft mineralization type with a bond work index of approximately 11kWhr/t. Further metallurgical test work is underway and an extensive program of additional metallurgical testwork is nearing completion.

Please see the following link to view all Kiseljak and Yellow Creek drill holes located spatially in three dimensions:


The majority of soil samples have been assayed at the ALS Chemex laboratory, Perth, Australia. More recent soil sampling programs have been assayed at the SGS managed laboratory at Chelopech in Bulgaria using a combination of ICP-OES and ICP-MS, whereas gold has been assayed by low level detection fire assay method (50 gram sample charge) with an AAS finish. Trench samples were prepared at the laboratory facility at SGS Bor and the samples have been assayed at the SGS managed laboratory at Chelopech in Bulgaria or the SGS managed laboratory facility at Bor. Diamond drill core has been prepared at the laboratory facility at Bor and assayed at either the SGS managed laboratory at Chelopech in Bulgaria or the SGS managed laboratory at Bor. Trench and diamond drill samples have been assayed for gold by 50 gram fire assay with an AAS finish whilst copper, silver and molybdenum have been analysed using an aqua regia digest with an AAS finish. A one metre sampling interval has been used where possible for the Tulare Copper-Gold Porphyry Project diamond drilling program. Half core is routinely submitted to the laboratory for analysis. Following Dunav standard quality assurance procedures, a full suite of field and laboratory duplicates and replicates along with internationally accredited standards and blanks, have been submitted with each batch of samples.

Trench sampling was carried out as channels in the wall just above the trench floor on 2 meter intervals. Except where extensive soil cover is encountered, trenches were sampled in their entirety. The samples were routinely weighed prior to final bagging to maintain an even sample size and to avoid sampling bias in harder rock types. An average channel sample weight was maintained at 3 kilograms per meter, which produces a consistent sample weight approximating half HQ core samples. Field duplicate samples were taken every 20 samples and known standards were inserted into the sample stream after every 20th sample. A geological and structural log was completed as for diamond drilling. All data collected in the field was routinely entered into geology and structural geology spread sheets using Field Marshal software for subsequent entry to an acQuire database and validation.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
Machine Learning helps make complex systems more efficient. By applying advanced Machine Learning techniques such as Cognitive Fingerprinting, wind project operators can utilize these tools to learn from collected data, detect regular patterns, and optimize their own operations.

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market? In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, explored the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise. What are the key differences between wh...

By using IoT technologies as a foundation, manufacturing customers are integrating worker safety with manufacturing systems, driving deep collaboration and utilizing analytics to exponentially increased per-unit margins. However, as Benoit Lheureux, the VP for Research at Gartner points out, “IoT project implementers often ...
When people aren’t talking about VMs and containers, they’re talking about serverless architecture. Serverless is about no maintenance. It means you are not worried about low-level infrastructural and operational details. An event-driven serverless platform is a great use case for IoT. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Animesh Singh, an STSM and Lead for IBM Cloud Platform and Infrastructure, will detail how to build a distributed serverless, polyglot, microservices framework using open source tec...
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...
