VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/26/14 -- Nevada Copper Corp. (TSX:NCU) ("Nevada Copper" or "Company") is pleased to announce that Mr. Timothy Arnold, Vice President Operations for Nevada Copper, has been named by the Society for Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration's ("SME") Nominating Committee as its candidate for President-elect Designate. Subject to ratification in February of 2015, Mr. Arnold would serve as President of the Society from February 2016 to February 2017.
Giulio Bonifacio, President and CEO, stated: "We are in a very exciting phase at our Pumpkin Hollow project where we are adding top caliber professionals to our senior team. To attract a person of Tim's caliber and experience this past October is a major accomplishment and further complements our team. Tim has hit the ground running to provide the leadership of our construction and operations team."
Mr. Arnold is a Registered Professional Mining Engineer with more than 30 years of experience in mine engineering, underground and open-pit mine operations, 12 of those years on Nevada mining projects. As previously reported, Mr. Arnold's past experience includes being the General Manager at the Mt. Hope and Liberty molybdenum projects for General Moly, Inc. in Nevada, primarily responsible for building the Mt. Hope operating team, developing operating systems, processes and policies, coordinating the transition to start-up, and managing local stakeholder relationships. Prior to that, Mr. Arnold was Vice President and General Manager of Coeur d'Alene Mines where he managed the underground Kensington Gold Mine project. Mr. Arnold also held the position of Vice President and General Manager at the Coeur Rochester mine, a silver/gold open pit operation in Nevada. During his tenure at the Rochester mine, it was ranked as one of safest medium-sized mines in Nevada by the Nevada Mining Association. Mr. Arnold's other roles included General Manager of Hecla's Lucky Friday mine, Mine Superintendent of Barrick's Bullfrog mine and Senior Underground Operations Engineer with Independence Mining.
Mr. Arnold stated: "It is an honor and a privilege to be nominated for this position. SME is a professional society with more than 15,000 professional members serving the minerals industry in more than 85 countries. It has provided invaluable service to the industry over the years. I believe strongly that people are a mining company's greatest asset, and one of SME's core values is to be the resource and advocate for the mining community by developing the skills and knowledge of its members. My most exciting challenge over the next several years is, not only to help build the physical assets of Nevada Copper's Pumpkin Hollow copper project, but to also help build a safe workforce for our Stage 1 underground operation for over 400 people."
The Stage 1 underground mine is scheduled for initial ramp-up of production in late 2015, and will have a permanent workforce of approximately 400 people. Nevada Copper also seeks to expedite the development of the Stage 2 open pit operation pending passage of the Lyon County Economic Development and Conservation Act in Congress. Passage of that bill would more than double the number of mine jobs, 2-3 years sooner, to a total combined workforce of approximately 1,000 workers. That is in addition to the approximately 200-500 workers who will be needed for construction of those two stages of the project.
Nevada Copper also announces the launch of its newly-updated corporate website: www.nevadacopper.com. This website, with its new user interface, will make it easier for users to access the most sought after information such as news releases, corporate presentations and financial statements, as well as technical information on mineral reserves and resources related to the Pumpkin Hollow project. The site also has a link to the Pumpkin Hollow project website www.pumpkinhollowcopper.com that focuses on project activities and stories important to the local and Nevada community.

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackI...

Once the decision has been made to move part or all of a workload to the cloud, a methodology for selecting that workload needs to be established. How do you move to the cloud? What does the discovery, assessment and planning look like? What workloads make sense? Which cloud model makes sense for each workload? What are the considerations for how to select the right cloud model? And how does that fit in with the overall IT transformation?

The recent trends like cloud computing, social, mobile and Internet of Things are forcing enterprises to modernize in order to compete in the competitive globalized markets. However, enterprises are approaching newer technologies with a more silo-ed way, gaining only sub optimal benefits.

For better or worse, DevOps has gone mainstream. All doubt was removed when IBM and HP threw up their respective DevOps microsites. Where are we on the hype cycle? It's hard to say for sure but there's a feeling we're heading for the "Peak of Inflated Expectations." What does this mean for the enterprise? Should they avoid DevOps? Definitely not. Should they be cautious though? Absolutely. The truth is that DevOps and the enterprise are at best strange bedfellows. The movement has its roots in t...
