High Grade Gold Discovered at Larken Prospect, West Omai

/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES./

PERTH, Australia, Jan. 10, 2013 /CNW/ - Azimuth Resources Limited (ASX and TSX: AZH) (the "Company" or "Azimuth") is pleased to announce the discovery of high grade gold at its Larken Prospect, less than 1km from its existing Hicks Deposit.

Highlights

  • First assays from shallow RC drilling at the Larken Prospect returned high grades over substantial widths.  Best results were:
    • LRC007:12 metres @ 4.8 g/t Au from 25 metres
    • LRC009:5 metres @ 2.5 g/t Au from 91 metres.
  • Assay results from this drilling program indicate that the Larken Prospect appears to be on a separate sub parallel structure 700m NE of Hicks. The Company believes this may be the same structure that hosts the Norby Prospect, some 3km to the NW of Larken.
  • The results of drill holes LRC007 and LRC009 when combined with the recently reprocessed and interpreted aeromagnetics illustrate the prospectivity of the West Omai region and specifically, the potential for additional high grade gold bearing structures in close proximity to the Smarts and Hicks Deposits.

Larken Prospect

Azimuth Resources Limited ("Azimuth" or "the Company") (ASX:AZH) is pleased to announce results from the first assayed reverse circulation drill hole at its 100% owned Larken Prospect ("Larken") located within the West Omai Gold Project, Guyana, South America.

Larken is a small artisanal open pit in saprolite, approximately 50 metres wide by 120 metres in strike and less than 15 metres deep, that was mined in the mid to late 1990s.  The pit lies approximately 700 metres to the northeast of the Hicks prospect and is likely to be a sub parallel structure to the one that hosts both Hicks and Smarts (see Figure 1).  Recent aeromagnetic processing and interpretation would indicate that there may well be a parallel zone of gold anomalism with a strike of at least 3 kilometres.

The Company believes the Norby Prospect (including SRC559 - 5m @ 1.1 g/t Au from 91m) which was drilled in the early stages of 2012, is likely hosted within this same structure, 3km to the northwest.

Results were received recently for LRC007 and LRC009. These were part of a program of 11 holes/1,265 metres drilled directly under the Larken pit as well as into a magnetic trend to the southeast.  Significant intercepts from the program are as follows;

  • LRC007                 12m @ 4.8 g/t Au (from 25m) and
                                   8m @ 0.95 g/t Au (from 91m)
  • LRC009                  5m @ 2.5 g/t Au (from 91m)

Figure 1: Map of first pass drilling at Larken Prospect, showing proximity to existing Smarts and Hicks Deposits on magnetic background.

Encouragingly there is 130m of strike between LRC007 and LRC009, and there has been no drilling to the NW of LRC007, leaving the possibility that the structure remains open at this end. Other holes within the program were successful in intercepting the structure, however returned low grades. These results suggest that there is the potential for ore shoots, similar to those seen within the Smarts Deposit, within the broader structure. The geology of the prospect appears similar to that of Smarts, being a volcanic host with abundant quartz veining in a NW trending shear zone.

The Company is excited by this discovery as it validates the belief that there are other high grade gold bearing structures separate to the Hicks and Smarts structure within the West Omai project.

These intercepts are an extremely encouraging result from the first drilling campaign by Azimuth on a prospect that has not been subject to recent drilling.  Although further drill results are needed to place these intercepts into a definitive geological framework, these results are a great starting point for a new high priority exploration target expected to be better defined in the coming months.

Outlook

As the Company recommences drilling activities in 2013, Larken is a prospect that will receive a more prioritised focus. Along with several other targets generated by the Company, Larken will be further tested in the first quarter of 2013.

In parallel, the Company is working diligently towards releasing its upgraded resource statement within the same period.

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.

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.
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.
