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:

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.

Most of the IoT Gateway scenarios involve collecting data from machines/processing and pushing data upstream to cloud for further analytics. The gateway hardware varies from Raspberry Pi to Industrial PCs. The document states the process of allowing deploying polyglot data pipelining software with the clear notion of supporting immutability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Shashank Jain, a development architect for SAP Labs, discussed the objective, which is to automate the IoT deployment process from development to production scenarios using Docker containers.
We all know that data growth is exploding and storage budgets are shrinking. Instead of showing you charts on about how much data there is, in his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at HGST, showed how to capture all of your data in one place. After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....
Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
As organizations realize the scope of the Internet of Things, gaining key insights from Big Data, through the use of advanced analytics, becomes crucial. However, IoT also creates the need for petabyte scale storage of data from millions of devices. A new type of Storage is required which seamlessly integrates robust data analytics with massive scale. These storage systems will act as “smart systems” provide in-place analytics that speed discovery and enable businesses to quickly derive meaningful and actionable insights. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Paul Turner, Chief Marketing Officer at...
DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, rich desktop and tuned mobile experiences can now be created with a single codebase – without compromising functionality, performance or usability. In his session at DevOps Summit, Charles Kendrick, CTO and Chief Architect at Isomorphic Software, demonstrated examples of com...
In his keynote at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Director of IoT Engineering at Citrix and co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, focused on building an IoT platform and company. He provided a behind-the-scenes look at Octoblu’s platform, business, and pivots along the way (including the Citrix acquisition of Octoblu).

Learn how the Adobe Marketing Cloud can help marketers embrace opportunities for personalized, relevant and real-time customer engagement across offline (direct mail, point of sale, call center) and digital (email, website, SMS, mobile apps, social networks, connected objects).
Countless business models have spawned from the IaaS industry – resell Web hosting, blogs, public cloud, and on and on. With the overwhelming amount of tools available to us, it's sometimes easy to overlook that many of them are just new skins of resources we've had for a long time. In his general session at 17th Cloud Expo, Harold Hannon, Sr. Software Architect at SoftLayer, an IBM Company, broke down what we have to work with, discussed the benefits and pitfalls and how we can best use them to design hosted applications.
The Internet of Everything is re-shaping technology trends–moving away from “request/response” architecture to an “always-on” Streaming Web where data is in constant motion and secure, reliable communication is an absolute necessity. As more and more THINGS go online, the challenges that developers will need to address will only increase exponentially. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Todd Greene, Founder & CEO of PubNub, exploreed the current state of IoT connectivity and review key trends and technology requirements that will drive the Internet of Things from hype to reality.
Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions. Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer. Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessions, I wanted to share some of my observations on emerging trends. As cyber security serves as a fou...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now all corporate assets – people, objects, and spaces – can share information about themselves and thei...
The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...
Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true change and transformation possible.
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" in this scenario: microservice A (releases daily) depends on a couple of additions to backend B (re...
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.
Container technology is shaping the future of DevOps and it’s also changing the way organizations think about application development. With the rise of mobile applications in the enterprise, businesses are abandoning year-long development cycles and embracing technologies that enable rapid development and continuous deployment of apps. In his session at DevOps Summit, Kurt Collins, Developer Evangelist at, examined how Docker has evolved into a highly effective tool for application delivery by allowing increasingly popular Mobile Backend-as-a-Service (mBaaS) platforms to quickly crea...
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound effect on the world, and what should we expect to see over the next couple of years.
Growth hacking is common for startups to make unheard-of progress in building their business. Career Hacks can help Geek Girls and those who support them (yes, that's you too, Dad!) to excel in this typically male-dominated world.
