New Pacific Enters Into Agreement to Acquire Majority Interest in RZY Silver-Lead-Zinc Project in Qinghai Province, China

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/21/12 -- New Pacific Metals Corp. (TSX:NUX) ("New Pacific" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has signed a binding letter of agreement (the "Agreement") with Silvercorp Metals Inc. ("Silvercorp") to acquire majority interest in its wholly owned subsidiary, Fortress Mining Inc. ("FMI"). Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, the Company will pay US$3.5 million to acquire an 80% interest of FMI, with an option to acquire the remaining 20% within two years for US$5 million after the Company has spent US$15.9 million on the project. Since the Transaction is a related party transaction it is subject to approval from the Toronto Stock Exchange.

In 2007 FMI and the Qinghai Geological Survey Institute ("QGSI") established a Sino-Foreign Co-Operative Company; Qinghai Found Mining ("QFM"), with a term of 30 years. FMI owns an 82% interest and QGSI owns an 18% carried interest in QFM. Currently, QFM's assets consist of approximately US$2.0 million in net cash and a 67% interest in the RZY exploration project (the "Project").

In April 2011, QFM entered into an exploration agreement with its shareholder, QGSI to jointly explore its RZY project, an early stage exploration project located in Qinghai Province, China (collectively, the "Exploration Agreement"). The major terms of the agreement are:


--  The RZY project exploration permit is held by QGSI. QFM has a 67%
    interest in the RZY project by funding exploration and drilling in 2012.
--  The exploration permit will be transferred to QFM when one of two events
    occur (1) QFM completes funding of RMB30 million (US$4.8 million) on RZY
    project exploration or capital expenditures; or (2) the RZY project
    matures to a development stage project. Once transferred; QFM will have
    a 100% interest in the RZY project, giving FMI an 82% interest in the
    project. 
--  QFM, funded 100% by FMI; is then committed to invest an additional
    RMB170 million (US$27.2 million) on RZY project exploration and capital
    expenditures to have a total investment of RMB200 million (US$32.0
    million) in exploration and capital expenditures on the RZY project. 
--  If QFM does not fund the required exploration and capital expenditures,
    the Exploration Agreement will be terminated while QFM maintains its
    interest in the Project. 

To date, pursuant to the Exploration Agreement, FMI has invested US$3.5 million in QFM and QFM has spent US$1.5 million on exploration and development expenditures in the RZY Project.

RZY Project Location, Background, and Geological Exploration

The RZY Project is an early stage silver-lead-zinc exploration project, situated on a high plateau with an average elevation of 5,000 metres above sea level. The Project is located approximately 237 kilometres via paved and gravel roads from the capital city of Yushu Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, or 820 kilometres via paved highway from Qinghai Province's capital city of Xining. Regular commercial flights are available from Xining to Yushu.

Known mineralization is silver-lead-zinc veins controlled by altered structure zones developed in the lower Permian marine clastic sediments. Two silver-lead-zinc mineralized zones, MI-1 and MI-2 with a strike extent of 6.5 kilometres and width of 25 to 100 metres have been identified by historical surface work conducted by QGSI including trenching, pitting, geology mapping and geophysics surveying. The geochemical profile indicated that the silver-lead-zinc mineralization is likely in situ, not floats of dispersion from sources in the surrounding mountainous area. The soil geochemical anomaly also indicated there could be another mineralized zone to the north in a flat area about one kilometre from the mountains.

In 2006, Silvercorp retained Golder Associates Ltd. ("Golder") to complete a National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101") report on the RZY Project and Golder conducted a site visit between October 15 and 25, 2006. Samples taken by Golder from trenches and shallow pits are listed in Table 1 below. The results indicate that silver-lead-zinc mineralization exists at RZY.

Exploration 2011-2012

In 2011 Silvercorp, through QFM and QGSI, conducted surface geology mapping and an induced polarization ("IP") geophysical survey program. The IP survey commenced along the western portion of the 6.5 kilometre long mineralized zone and was completed in 2012. The survey results indicate the existence of an area of high polarization to the north of the alteration break zone, and a separate minor zone of high polarization to the south. These high polarization areas may be related to mineralized alteration zones at depth.

Trenching

In 2012, seven trenches were completed by QFM. Lead-zinc-silver mineralization was identified in all trenches. The mineralization is characterized by lead-zinc sulphides and pyrite as well as oxides such as litharge and limonite. The galena is blocky or massive and is associated with quartz-carbonate veins. The width of lead-zinc mineralization exposed in trenches ranges from a few metres to more than 10 metres with individual galena-quartz veins of a few centimeters to half a meter wide. Assay results from the trenches completed in 2012 confirmed the presence of high grade silver-lead-zinc mineralization as indicated by historical results (see Table 2 below). The assay results of the new trenches are shown together with the historical results in Table 2. High grade silver is mostly associated with high grade lead and zinc which is the case of blocky or massive lead-zinc sulphides with quartz veins, but some high grade silver intervals contain relatively low values of lead and zinc, which may mean there are multiple distinct variations of mineralization.

Drilling

To test the depth potential of the mineralization exposed by surface workings, over 890 metres in five drill holes were drilled in 2012. Multiple altered structure zones with narrow galena-quartz veins were hit in holes, but no massive or blocky lead-zinc sulphide quartz veins, as observed in the trenches on surface, were intercepted. Although assay results of drill cores indicated the mineralization occurs in the major east-west structural zones in the Permian clastic sediments and is continuing at depth (see Table 3 below), the width and grades of drill intercepts are inferior to the results of the surface trenches and pits. Drill hole ZK2401 did not hit any significant mineralization as exposed by the surface trenches. However, given the strike extent of the mineralization, and the high-grade nature of the silver-lead-zinc mineralization indicated by samples from the trenches and pits, New Pacific believes there is enough evidence to support the transaction and justify continued drilling at the Project in 2013.

Sample Preparation and Assay Results

QFM employed standard QA/QC procedures to monitor and control assay quality by regular insertion of standard reference materials, blank samples and duplicate samples prior to shipment for preparation and analysis. Drill cores are halved with diamond saw on site. Half core and trench channel samples are shipped from site by security courier to the preparation facilities of SGS, Xi'an, China for preparation. Sample preparation includes the typical process of drying, crushing, splitting and pulverizing. Pulp samples then are delivered by security courier to the analytical laboratory of SGS, Tianjin, China for analysis. Analytical method is 4-acid digestion with ICP-AES finish with the over limits going to AAS finish. Routine QA/QC procedures are also carried out at the lab by itself to monitor the quality of sample preparation and analysis.

The trenching and drilling results set out in this news release, including the assays that were analyzed by SGS labs in 2012, were completed for Silvercorp Metals Inc. and QGSI, and as such, pursuant to NI 43-101 are historical. The Company has not verified the historical assay results and they should not be relied upon. The only NI 43-101 technical report completed to date was the Golder technical report in October 2006. The Company intends to complete updated technical reports as exploration continues.

Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model.

This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
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. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo in Silicon Valley. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be!
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
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 comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.
