WINDFALL PROPERTY REVIEW AND OUTLOOK
The Windfall Lake Property covers approximately 12,400 hectares in the prolific Abitibi Greenstone Belt in Quebec. The property consists of 285 contiguous claims. Eagle Hill obtained ownership of the property by optioning different claim blocks from Noront, Murgor and Cliffs. On May 6, 2014, the Company announced that it had completed its purchase of three 2% NSRs related to Eagle Hill's Windfall Lake Gold Project, which is located in the Abitibi Gold Belt approximately 200 km northeast of Val d'Or, Quebec. The Company paid a total of $60,000 and issued a total of 3,333,334 shares to purchase the NSRs, which cover 3,469.9 hectares of the 12,400 hectare Windfall Lake Property. The shares issued to the vendors of the royalties are subject to a four-month hold period.
On March 28, 2014, the Company completed the purchase of the 29 Claims and the 184 Claims immediately adjacent to the Windfall Lake Property. In consideration for purchasing the remaining interests in the 29 Claims and the 184 Claims, the Company paid $250,000 and issued 9.5 million common shares to each of the optionors. In addition, the Company granted a 0.5% NSR for the 29 Claims and a 1% NSR for the 184 Claims to each of the optionors. The Company retained the right to buy back any of the NSRs at any time prior to first commercial production by paying $500,000 to the holder of the NSR.
The Fall 2013 drill program achieved its primary objectives, confirming continuity of mineralization below Red Dog, confirming the extension of mineralization southwest of the Main Zone, and expanding both Zone 27 and the Mink Lens. In addition, a downhole IP survey showed additional potential below Red Dog.
The Winter 2014 drill program was focused on testing for gold mineralization below shallow lakes in the Main Zone. A total of 3,333 metres was drilled in 16 drill holes. Several drill intercepts demonstrated the presence of pyritic stockwork similar to other lenses of the Main Zone. The results confirmed continuity of the Zone 27 gold mineralization and demonstrated lateral extension of the Zone. Highlights of the drilling program include 18.5 g/t gold over 3.38 metres, 7.04 g/t gold over 6.2 metres, and 20.45 g/t gold over 2.6 metres in the eastern extension of Zone 27. In addition, the drilling program expanded the upper portion of Zone 27 by over 100 metres to the southwest with the discovery of 8.36 g/t gold over 1.2 metres and 10.6 g/t gold over 0.9 metres. Eagle Hill press released a complete summary of results from the Winter 2014 drill program on June 24, 2014.
During the summer of 2014, the Company has planned a 2,800-metre drill program targeting the extension of Zone 27 to the northeast below the Red Dog intrusion. Eagle Hill plans to deepen six existing drill holes in a target zone that is currently untested. Using existing holes to reach the target zone will reduce drilling costs and also allow the target zone to be reached more quickly. The Board of Directors has also approved an additional hole-to-hole IP survey to further define drill targets at depth. Geological studies indicate that the gold mineralization hosted by Zone 27 and the Caribou Zone may have been displaced as much as 600 metres below the Red Dog dike, which coincides with the IP anomaly identified below Red Dog. The Fall 2013 drilling program confirmed continuity of gold mineralization below the Red Dog intrusion and delineated an inferred mineral resource of 455,000 tonnes at a grade of 8.21 g/t gold for 120,000 contained ounces of gold, highlighting the potential to increase the mineral resource below the Red Dog intrusion.
Preliminary Economic Assessment Study
On June 24, 2014, Eagle Hill announced that the Company plans to initiate a Preliminary Economic Assessment Study ("PEA") for the Windfall Lake Property. The environmental, engineering and economic studies associated with a PEA will provide further clarity on the potential of advancing the Windfall Lake Property to production. The Board of Directors has appointed Paul-Henri Girard as the lead director to manage the PEA process. Mr. Girard is a Mining Engineer with extensive hands-on experience planning and operating Canadian mines. Mr. Girard started his career with Falconbridge Copper as a mining engineer in 1980, and moved to Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd. in 1987 as Chief Engineer of LaRonde Mine in Quebec. Mr. Girard held increasingly senior positions with Agnico Eagle over a 25-year period, eventually retiring from the position of Vice President Canadian Operations in 2012.

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.

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...

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...
