UC Resources Discovers Significant Silver Vein Structure at XORA

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/05/12 -- UC Resources Ltd. ("UC" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:UC) is pleased to provide this update to its shareholders, stakeholders and interested parties.

Recent sampling at multiple narrow vein mining locations have now been sampled and site visited by management. The following observations and results were inspected on a recent site visit.

Los Cuatas Vein

The Los Cuatas Vein was mined on three levels to a small extent and on surface along strike to the north.

The Los Cuatas Vein to the north appears to disappear under over burden that outcrops periodically over a kilometre of strike length prior to disappearing under overburden. The vein to the south morphs into an area of stockworks. (a mineralized zone in the form of a network of veinlets diffused in the country rock) The vein and stockwork area appears to be approximately 8 meters wide in places and the following samples have been taken on strike from what remains of the footwall.

South and east of the Los Cuatas Vein is Los Cuatas II Vein where sampling across a 7 meter area of the hanging wall has resulted in the following channel sample results.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

To the east of the Los Cuatas Vein, within approximately 200 meters lies the former El Mirador Mine. An adjacent mine referred to as the Mirador II Vein lies approximately 25 meters east of the El Mirador main mine. Channel sampling was conducted between the two mines and two areas of interest on surface were observed.

A channel sample taken 25 meters west of the El Mirador Mine returned .12g of gold and 668g of silver over a one meter width. This showing can be followed on surface and a drill pad has been constructed to drill in an effort to follow the depth and strike of this spectacular assay.

South of Los Cuatas Vein, at approximately 70 meters, resides the Leona II Vein. The Leona Vein is an additional 125 meters south of Leona II. Both vein areas show extensive fracturing and brecciated welded rock with quartz veining. Channel samples taken from Leona II were taken along across the structure and samples taken from Leona were taken from inside the mined area. One interesting element about the Leona Vein, is that it strikes almost east west while all other occurrences are almost exactly north south.

South of Leona Vein by 150 meters you will find Waterfall l Vein. This is least explored of our new occurrences and have been sampled randomly to date with samples taken over one meter widths. Highlights are as follows:

Further sampling will be required in this area.

The analyses were completed by accredited ALS Chemex Laboratories of Vancouver.

John Archibald, PGeo, a qualified person pursuant to NI 43-101, has reviewed and approved the technical information in this press release on behalf of the company.

The Company drill rig, after its arrival on site, has had required repairs completed to facilitate efficient, economic and effective drilling. The Company is also in the process of coming to a final agreement with a recently surfaced, local land owner, for unrestricted land access on the UC Resources constructed road to drilling locations.

Some drilling has been completed and core samples are being sent for assays to an accredited laboratory. Results will be released as they are received in minimum two hole lots and the main drilling program plans will recommence in January.

The Company has completed the planned upgrade on the La Yesca milling operations, and now that the rainy season of August to October has concluded, tonnage processed is increasing and production is again moving toward the end goal of commercial production. A 25- year experienced milling consultant has recently visited the site with management and will be assisting in the streamlining of mining operations over the next few months. The company is committed to consistency and most importantly the ability to sustain ongoing production. Staff training, mill flow, strategic planning and all elements of mill operation will be thoroughly examined in January in consultation with our newly retained consultant.

The Company defines Commercial production for the La Yesca production mill as follows:


--  all major capital expenditures to bring the mine to the condition
    necessary for it to be capable of operating in the manner intended by
    management have been completed; 
--  the completion of a reasonable period of testing of the plant and
    equipment; 
--  the ability to produce saleable product (e.g., the ability to produce
    precipitate / concentrate within specifications); 
--  the mill has reached a pre-determined percentage of design capacity; 
--  mineral recoveries are at or near the expected production level; 
--  the ability to sustain ongoing production 

Management is of the opinion that of the items listed that determines commercial production, that the ability to sustain ongoing consistent production is the final challenge.

UC Resources is an active explorer and producer of precious metals in Mexico.

While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehe...
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.
Performance is the intersection of power, agility, control, and choice. If you value performance, and more specifically consistent performance, you need to look beyond simple virtualized compute. Many factors need to be considered to create a truly performant environment. In his General Session at 15th Cloud Expo, Harold Hannon, Sr. Software Architect at SoftLayer, discussed how to take advantage of a multitude of compute options and platform features to make cloud the cornerstone of your online presence.
