SURREY, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/06/14 -- Adanac Molybdenum Corporation ("Adanac" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: AUA) announces the following strategic update.
Adanac's sole asset is the Ruby Creek Project ("Ruby Creek" or the "Project"), which comprises an undeveloped primary molybdenum deposit, located approximately 24 kilometers northeast of Atlin, British Columbia. Adanac's strategic focus over the past two years has been to sell all or part of Ruby Creek or Adanac. Adanac believes that Ruby Creek offers significant investment potential:
-- Ruby Creek is 100% owned, with no carried interests, royalties or off- take arrangements. -- Ruby Creek is fully permitted for construction and nearly fully permitted for operation. -- The NI 43-101 compliant May 2009 Resource Statement outlined a Measured and Indicated resource of 275.4 million tonnes grading 0.067% molybdenum. The 407.9 million pound M&I resource represents a 38% increase over the 2007 Resource Update. -- The now out-of-date December 2007 Feasibility Study needs to be updated to reflect this significant 38% increase. Additionally, molybdenum prices, while currently depressed, have the potential to improve significantly, including as a result of the increase in oil and natural gas drilling and pipeline construction. Project economics hold the potential for other improvements, including the substitution of liquefied natural gas for diesel to power operations. -- The May 2009 Resource Statement and December 2007 Feasibility Study encompass significant amounts of information about drilling, assaying, metallurgical test work, environmental studies and permitting, garnered over more than twenty years. -- Metallurgical test results demonstrate that Ruby Creek molybdenum concentrate will meet or exceed the content specifications required by toll roasters. -- Ruby Creek is accessible year round via an Adanac-improved dirt road, and is three hours by road from both Whitehorse, Yukon and from the port of Skagway, Alaska. -- The Project enjoys strong government and local community support. -- While Ruby Creek is designed as an open pit, the Climax/Henderson-style geology and several high-grade drill holes indicate the potential for further underground development beneath and/or adjacent to the pit.
Notwithstanding Ruby Creek's significant investment potential, if no suitable third party investor emerges in the near term, the Company intends to initiate a process to liquidate its assets and return net proceeds to Adanac shareholders pursuant to a voluntary liquidation and dissolution process under the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia). Such a proposed liquidation will require the approval of shareholders by a two-thirds majority vote at a Special Meeting, which Adanac intends to hold in conjunction with its Annual General Meeting as soon as is practical subsequent to completion of the annual audit for the fiscal year ending February 28, 2014.
As outlined above, Adanac believes that the on-going value of Ruby Creek significantly exceeds the liquidation value.
The Company will provide further updates as they arise. Additional information about Ruby Creek is available via the Adanac website at www.adanacmoly.com, including a Corporate Presentation and a Ruby Creek Overview in the Investors section. Public filings relating to the Company are available via the Adanac website and on the SEDAR website at www.sedar.com.

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 w...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from ha...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

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 ...

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 happe...
