SILVERDALE, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/09/14 -- CGrowth Capital, Inc. (OTC Pink: CGRA) (PINKSHEETS: CGRA) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed escrow on a 47 acre industrial processing site in Stevens County, Washington. The property includes three tax parcels with 93,000 sq. ft. of industrial buildings, a 3,000 sq. ft. office, 600,000 sq. ft. of impervious surface, on site water systems, three phase power to all buildings, an evaporation pond and tailings pond, 19 acres of farm field open space for future product testing, and its own rail spur and rail scale house on the property. The Company is already performing specific enhancements and improvements to the property for its operations.
In addition to the industrial site, the Company also closed concurrently on a 20-year Mineral Lease that covers specialty items such as dolomite, terrazzo, silica, and all facets of construction, specialty, and agricultural rock. The lease includes 14 separately identified parcels, over 1,100 acres of land, and an estimated 300,000,000 tons of material. A valuation on the total lease value has yet to be determined.
"We feel like we just drafted a future hall of fame quarterback," stated an ecstatic Bill Wright, CEO of CGrowth Capital, Inc. "We may have a ways to go before we win a championship, but we just picked up a major asset to get us there!"
Mr. Wright continued, "The mineral leases that we acquired include a variety of colored rock and silica, along with the prized white dolomite. Dolomite and calcium carbonate is used in many different market segments, such as paper, polymers, building materials, and life science applications -- including pharmaceuticals and agriculture -- just to name a few. Even prior to closing the transaction we had buyers inquiring and purchasing the products."
"We are now fully geared and currently in talks with many agricultural companies to supply them with dolomite. With the boom in the medical cannabis market and the recent legalization of recreational cannabis in some western states, we are positioning ourselves within the infrastructure of the business to provide legalized farming operations and growers with the dolomite needed for their soil enhancement. There are many uses for dolomite within the farming subdivision but to add the use of dolomite as a soil enhancement to legal cannabis growers, we are now positioned to aggressively pursue business in that sector and expect business to ramp up at a steady pace as acceptance spreads throughout the United States."
The real estate purchase transaction was closed under a wholly owned limited liability company, along with a promissory note secured by a Deed of Trust. The Mineral Lease is based on a royalty payment. The Company pays the Lessor a per ton price for the variety of the assets removed from the quarries. The Mineral Lease requires a minimum royalty payment per year beginning January 1, 2015.

Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along...

PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add sc...

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...

Data-intensive companies that strive to gain insights from data using Big Data analytics tools can gain tremendous competitive advantage by deploying data-centric storage. Organizations generate large volumes of data, the vast majority of which is unstructured. As the volume and velocity of this unstructured data increases, the costs, risks and usability challenges associated with managing the unstructured data (regardless of file type, size or device) increases simultaneously, including end-to-...

Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, includin...

Operational Hadoop and the Lambda Architecture for Streaming Data Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to mak...

When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data th...

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon...

With several hundred implementations of IoT-enabled solutions in the past 12 months alone, this session will focus on experience over the art of the possible. Many can only imagine the most advanced telematics platform ever deployed, supporting millions of customers, producing tens of thousands events or GBs per trip, and hundreds of TBs per month. With the ability to support a billion sensor events per second, over 30PB of warm data for analytics, and hundreds of PBs for an data analytics arc...
