DNA Precious Metals Answers Comments for Certificate of Authorization Amendment from Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment, Wildlife and Parks

MONTREAL, Quebec, February 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --


DNA Precious Metals Inc. ("DNA" or "the Company") (OTCQB: DNAP) is pleased to announce that it has answered all comments to date from the Quebec Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment, Wildlife and Parks pertaining to an application for an amendment to a certificate of authorization  to operate a milling facility. The amendment request to the existing certificate of authorization is to include an additional extraction process methodology.

In September of 2012, DNA was issued a certificate of authorization from the Quebec Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment, Wildlife and Parks authorizing the Company to process mining residues by gravity separation methodology.  The amendment request filed in the Summer of 2013 includes the processing of the mining residues through a Merrill Crowe cyanide closed circuit system.

Extensive laboratory testing work on an extraction process for the mining residues on the Montauban Mine Property demonstrated that a combination of gravity separation and closed circuit cyanization was the most effective process for the successful recovery of the precious metals.  The combined extraction methodology increased the recovery percentages of gold and silver in the mining residues.  With the implementation of the combined extraction methodology process, DNA may recover up to 92% of the gold and 77% of the silver from the mining residues on the Montauban Mine Property.

The amendment request to the certificate of authorization deposited with the Quebec Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment, Wildlife and Parks targets the processing of the mining residues identified as Anacon 1 covering an area of approximately 7 hectares on the Montauban Mine Property located in the Montauban and Chavigny townships near Grondines-West in the Portneuf County, Quebec, Canada.  DNA Precious Metals Inc. presently has mining rights on the Montauban Mine Property covering an area of approximately 420 hectares.

If, as and when issued, the remittance of the amendment to the certificate of authorization permit from the Quebec Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment, Wildlife and Parks will take DNA Precious Metals Inc. one step closer to processing the Anacon 1 mining residues, on which a National Instrument 43-101 resource estimate published by Yves Gagnon Engineer, Geologist indicated a measured resource of approximately 428 252 tons.

Ronald Mann, President and CEO stated; "If as and when issued, the amended Certificate of Authorization permit is another milestone for DNA Precious Metals Inc. in the march to production. Our investment and collaboration with the Quebec Government will facilitate that our project is on track, subject to production financing, to meet its target of having the mine fully commissioned by the summer of 2014.  I would like to send my deepest appreciation to the Quebec Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment, Wildlife and Parks and to everyone on our team and who have all worked so hard in achieving our objectives."

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...
DevOps is all about agility. However, you don't want to be on a high-speed bus to nowhere.

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.

This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
