TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 02/04/13 -- New Klondike Exploration Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:NK) ("New Klondike" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into an option agreement to purchase a 100% interest in a strategic mining claim in the Kawashegamuk Lake Area, near Katisha Lake, contiguous to the western boundary of the Company's Goldstorm Project. The claim (the "Katisha Lake Claim") is jointly owned by Alexander Glatz and Ivar Joseph Riives (the "Optionors") of Dryden, Ontario. The transaction forms part of the Company's continuing land acquisition strategy for the Goldstorm Project area.
The Katisha Lake Claim consists of 9 claim units covering an area of 144 hectares. The claim is host to at least eight known gold prospects, as documented in Ontario Geological Survey data files. During the mid-1980s, Esso Minerals Limited ("Esso") carried out an exploration program on a property that included the Katisha Lake Claim. That work program included shallow drill testing of five of these prospects.
Gold mineralization at Katisha Lake is hosted by silicified zones and quartz veining developed within sheared, sericitized and pyritized zones ranging from 1 to 20 metres in width. These zones have been traced for lengths ranging from 50 to 300 metres. The zones are hosted within layered gabbroic sills that intrude Archean aged mafic to felsic volcanic rocks. All of these rocks are unconformably overlain by a band of Timiskaming-type sediments immediately to the north of the known gold (Au) prospects. Historic sampling from quartz veining and silicified zones within the host structures has returned gold values ranging from 2.06 to 18.6 grams per tonne (g/t). The results from the 1985 and 1987 Esso drilling programs are only partially available. The best assay result from the available data was a 1.55 metre intersection that assayed 8.57 g/t Au. The assay results and other data from the Katisha Lake Claim are historic in nature and have not been verified by the Qualified Person (identified below). A work program that will include re-sampling of the surface exposures of the known Au prospects is currently being planned.
Michael Coulter, President of New Klondike said, "We are pleased to have added this important property to the Goldstorm Project. The Company believes that the Katisha Lake Claim is highly representative of one of our five key exploration target areas identified in our geological model for the Goldstorm Project. As discussed in the technical report filed by the Company on January 29, 2013, the unconformity between the Timiskaming-type sedimentary rocks and the underlying volcanic rocks have excellent potential to host economic gold deposits. The property has good access as it is traversed by a major forestry road and is expected to provide near-term drill targets for the Company."
The Optionors have granted New Klondike the right and option (the "Option") to acquire a one hundred percent (100%) interest in the Katisha Lake Claim, over the four-year term of the Option, by:
-- making cumulative cash payments of $150,000 ($20,000 (paid) on signing and subsequent payments on the first, second, third and fourth anniversary dates of the agreement of $20,000, $30,000, $30,000 and $50,000, subject to the Company's right to make up to fifty percent (50%) of the payments due on the second, third and fourth anniversary dates in common shares; -- making minimum annual exploration expenditures of $5,000 during the term of the Option; -- granting the Optionors a two percent (2%) net smelter royalty upon exercise of the Option, subject to the Company's right to purchase one percent (1%) of the net smelter royalty at any time for $250,000, payable in cash or common shares; and -- making annual advance royalty payments of $2,500 to each Optionor commencing on February 15, 2017, to a maximum cumulative total of $25,000, subject to the Company's right to prepay this amount at any time in cash or common shares.
In the event that the Company elects to satisfy any of the future payments described above by issuing its common shares, the number of shares to be issued will be determined by the 30-day volume-weighted average price of the Company's common shares on the TSX Venture Exchange at the time of issue, subject to a minimum price of $0.10. Any shares issued will be subject to four-month statutory hold period.
An existing one percent (1%) net smelter return and/or net sales return royalty on the Katisha Lake Claim, payable to Ontario Exploration Corporation, remains the responsibility of the Optionors, and would be paid out of any royalty payments to which they are entitled, and not by New Klondike.
Mr. Seymour M. Sears, B.A., B.Sc., and P.Geo., a director of the Company, has reviewed and approved the technical content of this press release.

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.

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, discussed 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 t...

There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies. To make things even more challenging, requirements are getting more sophisticated, and the standard paradigm of supporting historical analytics queries is often just one facet of what is needed. As Big Data growth continues, organizations are demanding real-time access to data, allowing immediate and actionable interpretation of events as they happen. Another aspect concerns how to deliver ...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
