Debut Earns 70% Interest at Nakina, Announces Drill Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 11/27/12 -- Debut Diamonds Inc. (CNSX:DDI) (the "Company" or "Debut"), is pleased to announce that it has concluded Phase One of its exploration program at its Nakina Project, centrally located in a million square kilometers of underexplored area in northwestern Ontario, north of the village of Nakina. Within this area, the Company has acquired 88 mining claims that were staked for their kimberlite potential, and initiated an exploration program based on testing a priority selection. The program included ground magnetic surveys and drilling on 18 potential kimberlite targets in the central and southern portions of the project area, located within the traditional lands of Aroland First Nation. Of these, three (3) are recently staked mining claims.

The program failed to discover kimberlite, but did discover other types of mineralization. Pending full analysis, these discoveries will be evaluated in the context of an indicated reinterpretation of their geological setting.

On August 19, 2011, Debut acquired an option ("Nakina Option") to earn a 70% operating interest in 28 unpatented mining claims and under certain terms of that agreement, Debut was to incur a total of $750,000 in exploration expenditures on the property and also pay the Vendor an additional $25,000 and issue 600,000 Debut shares in each of the following two years to exercise the option and acquire a 70% interest in the claims.

While completing the recent drill program, Debut fulfilled its minimum work commitment of $750,000 as per the Nakina Option and has made final payment of $25,000 and issued 600,000 Debut shares to the Vendor, to complete the earn-in of a 70% interest in the claims. Additionally, the Company has signed a Joint Venture Agreement with the Vendor, with the Vendor retaining a 2% Diamond Royalty on diamond sales (less diamond selling costs) and a 2% Net Smelter Returns Royalty, in respect of all Minerals (other than Diamonds).

On September 18, 2012, the company filed an 'Exclusion of Time' request with the Minister of Northern Development and Mines ("MNDM"), on eighty-five (85) unpatented mining claims associated with the Company's Nakina Project, because of delays in concluding consultation with affected First Nations for approval of exploration work on First Nation traditional lands. On November 1, 2012, MNDM informed the Company that its application had been approved for only the 28 claim Nakina Option, because the filing deadline for assessment work on the claims was due within 90 days of the Company's request. The Company therefore received a Minister's Order, which set December 17, 2013 as the new anniversary date in which to complete and file assessment work. If the Company is unable to conclude consultation with Marten Falls First Nation, for an agreement regarding exploration in the northeastern portion of the project area by March 1st, 2013 it may then resubmit an 'Exclusion of Time' request for the additional 57 mining claims not covered in the current Minister's Order.

Additionally, the Company regrets having to announce the resignation of Theresa Okimaw-Hall as a member of its Board of Directors, as a consequence of her recent employment by the Mushkegowuk Tribal Council as Ring of Fire Manager.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs.

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
