Threegold Consolidates Its Land Position Around Rousseau and Standard Gold in Abitibi in Acquiring Two New Properties from Diagnos, as Well as Provides an Update

VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 11/30/12 -- Threegold Resources Inc (TSX VENTURE:THG) ("Threegold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the acquisition from Diagnos Inc. of the Colline Bearn and Dalquier properties located at approximately 13 kilometre from the town of Amos and some 55 kilometres northeast of Val-d'Or, in the Bearn and Dalquier townships, in the Abitibi region of Quebec (see appended map: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/va1130.pdf).

The Collines Bearn and Dalquier projects consist of 22 map-designated cells covering a surface area of about 13 square kilometres (1,282 hectares). The two new properties are immediately adjacent to the Rousseau West property, which together with Rousseau East and Standard Gold, are 100% owned projects. These projects are located on trend with a 3.6 kilometre-long, auriferous corridor that has been defined by the last drill campaign carried out on Standard Gold by Threegold's option partner Bowmore (see Press Release March 29th, 2012). The old Standard Gold mine contains historical resources estimated at 132,750tonnes at 5.4g/t Au.

Geologically, the Collines Bearn and Dalquier projects lie on volcanic units of the Lac Arthur Group dominated by andesites, structurally overlain by basalts of the Bearn Group. The volcanic rock package is truncated by the prominent Berry Pluton and a dioritic intrusion on the Colline Bearn property, and by a granodioritic pluton adjacent to a gabbros on the Dalquier Property (Source: Sigeom MRNF NTS sheet 32D09-200-0202).

The Collines Bearn project contains the historical showings AN-88-6 and DD88-1 which, with Gordona on Rousseau West, are all associated with prominent high magnetic and strong electromagnetic anomalies identified over few kilometers by the recently completed MAG-TDEM airborne geophysical survey by the Company (see press release June 21, 2012). Mineralization consists of disseminated to semi-massive sulphides (sphalerite, galena, pyrrhotite, pyrite) associated with brecciated to sheared, quartz-carbonate-sericite veins and veinlets returning high grade values in gold, silver, lead and zinc (Source: Sigeom MRNF GM-46485, GM-47679, GM-47830).

The Dalquier project contains the East Dalquier Showing characterized by a quartz vein network associated with scheelite. The mineralization consists of disseminated pyrite with traces of pyrrhotite, chalcopyrite and native gold, which returned historical values in gold of up to 5.5g/t-Au in grab samples (Source: Sigeom MRNF GM 56186), 4.8g/tAu over 1.1 metre in drilling (Source: Sigeom MRNF GM-01714) and unconfirmed values in tungsten of 1.86%W.

Note that the resources reported above are provided as historical data and have not been verified. In addition, grab samples are selective by nature and unlikely represent average grades.

Under the terms of the agreement, Threegold will acquire 100% interest in the two properties by making a $10,000 cash payment and by issuing 200,000 common shares to Diagnos Inc. The deal will be subject to a 2% NSR ("Net Smelter Return") royalty of which 1% can be bought back for $1,000,000.

Termination of option agreements:

Threegold Resources has opted to terminate its option to earn up to 75% of the Hop O'My Thumb and Vauquelin properties of Plato Gold. Osisko Mining Corporation ("Osisko") has opted to drop its option to earn up to 70% on the Adanac property. Osisko still maintains its share position in the Company and is confident in Threegold's management and ability to deliver long term shareholder value.

Financing activities:

Threegold has closed a 48,000 $CND financing priced at 6 cents per unit with a half warrant at 10 cents for 18 months. A 7% finder's fee in cash is being paid in association with this transaction.

Victor Goncalves, President and CEO of Threegold Resources Inc. stated: "We are pleased with the progress made by the Company despite the current difficult economic market conditions. We are pleased to have acquired two new gold plays with high-grade gold occurrences along with base metals in our portfolio. The Collines Bearn and Dalquier projects are now part of our strategic and ongoing effort to consolidate an already strong land position in a highly prospective gold mining camp. The company is planning an exploration news release shortly to update the Company activities".

Alain Berclaz, P.Geo, Vice-President Exploration for Threegold and a Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101, has approved the technical information contained in this news release.

Things are being built upon cloud foundations to transform organizations. This CEO Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo, moderated by Roger Strukhoff, Cloud Expo and @ThingsExpo conference chair, will address the big issues involving these technologies and, more important, the results they will achieve. How important are public, private, and hybrid cloud to the enterprise? How does one define Big Data? And how is the IoT tying all this together?
The Internet of Things (IoT) is going to require a new way of thinking and of developing software for speed, security and innovation. This requires IT leaders to balance business as usual while anticipating for the next market and technology trends. Cloud provides the right IT asset portfolio to help today’s IT leaders manage the old and prepare for the new. Today the cloud conversation is evolving from private and public to hybrid. This session will provide use cases and insights to reinforce the value of the network in helping organizations to maximize their company’s cloud experience.
TechCrunch reported that "Berlin-based relayr, maker of the WunderBar, an Internet of Things (IoT) hardware dev kit which resembles a chunky chocolate bar, has closed a $2.3 million seed round, from unnamed U.S. and Switzerland-based investors. The startup had previously raised a €250,000 friend and family round, and had been on track to close a €500,000 seed earlier this year — but received a higher funding offer from a different set of investors, which is the $2.3M round it’s reporting."
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. Over the summer Gartner released its much anticipated annual Hype Cycle report and the big news is that Internet of Things has now replaced Big Data as the most hyped technology. Indeed, we're hearing more and more about this fascinating new technological paradigm. Every other IT news item seems to be about IoT and its implications on the future of digital busines...

This Internet of Nouns trend is still in the early stages and many of our already connected gadgets do provide human benefits over the typical infotainment. Internet of Things or IoT. You know, where everyday objects have software, chips, and sensors to capture data and report back. Household items like refrigerators, toilets and thermostats along with clothing, cars and soon, the entire home will be connected. Many of these devices provide actionable data - or just fun entertainment - so people can make decisions about whatever is being monitored. It can also help save lives.
