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.

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...
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.

These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...

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.
