NGEx Drills 7.59% Copper Over 10 Metres and 314.5 g/t Silver Over 12 Metres at Filo del Sol Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/30/14 -- NGEx Resources Inc. (TSX:NGQ) ("NGEx" or the "Company") is pleased to announce results from the final nine holes drilled during the 2014 drill program at the Filo del Sol copper-gold-silver project located in San Juan Province, Argentina. The drill holes announced today include infill holes which confirm the continuity of high-grade copper and silver mineralization and one step-out hole which extends the zone 300 metres to the north. Highlights include:


--  VRC71 which intersected 20 metres (from 360m) of 1.07% copper and 0.63
    g/t gold, extending the high grade manto zone approximately 300 metres
    to the north of previous drilling (VRC28). This hole appears to have
    stopped above the silver zone; 

--  VRC74 which intersected 44 metres (from 162m) of 0.80% copper and 1.09
    g/t gold just above an 18 metre interval (from 236m) of 236.6 g/t
    silver. There are no holes drilled to the east of this hole; 

--  VRC76 which intersected 14 metres (from 104m) of 1.29% copper and 2.41
    g/t gold;

--  VRC79 which intersected 6 metres (from 146m) of 4.16 g/t gold above an 8
    metre interval (from 206m) of 394.8 g/t silver; 

--  FSDH13 which was unfortunately lost in strong mineralization at the
    bottom of a 26.3 metre interval (from 204m) of 3.87% copper, including
    the upper 10 metres which returned 7.59% copper; 

--  Most drill holes terminated in porphyry mineralization as the primary
    goal of this program was to define the shallower, high-grade manto zone.

Filo del Sol is a high sulphidation epithermal copper-gold-silver system that overlies a porphyry copper-gold system. Overlapping mineralizing events combined with weathering effects have created several different styles of mineralization, including from top to bottom: high-grade supergene enriched copper; manto-style high-grade silver (+/- copper and gold); structurally-controlled gold; and copper-gold porphyry mineralization.

The focus of this season's drill program was to expand and infill both the copper-gold porphyry mineralization and the high-grade manto zone which occurs as a sub-horizontal sheet of variable thickness within the volcanic rocks which overlie the porphyry system. The Filo del Sol mineralization remains open in all directions.

The nine holes released here span a north-south distance of 880 metres, with VRC75 at the southern edge of the drill pattern and VRC71 at the north. Drill hole collar locations are shown on the plan map which accompanies this news release.

Drillholes VRC64 and FSDH12 were drilled from the same platform. FSDH12 was abandoned due to poor ground conditions at a depth of 135.8 metres, well above the target depth. Hole VRC64 was completed to a depth of 492 metres in order to test the zone at the intended location of FSDH12. Sampling in VRC64 was initiated at a depth of 130 metres, so that the combined results from these two holes in effect comprise the results of a single hole drilled at this location. VRC64 ended in porphyry mineralization with the last sample at 0.28% copper and 0.26 g/t gold.

The mineralization in VRC64 between 258 and 294 metres appears to correlate well with the section between 166 and 186 metres in Hole VRC79, although the high-grade silver interval in the latter hole lies just below the copper-gold zone. These intersections lie along the main zone of manto-style mineralization which strikes approximately east-west and dips at about 15 degrees to the north.

This manto zone is interpreted to represent a relatively porous and permeable volcanic unit which was preferentially mineralized within the epithermal system due to increased fluid flow within it. It forms a continuous tabular zone of copper-gold-silver mineralization which stretches a minimum of 1200 metres north-northeast from VRC65 in the south to VRC63 in the north, and 530 metres northwest from VRC72 in the east to VRC66 in the west. This zone remains open in all directions.

High-grade silver mineralization is restricted to this zone, while the high-grade copper and gold zones occur within and above the manto. Drill intercepts below the manto zone generally consist of more homogeneous, disseminated and stockwork porphyry copper-gold style mineralization.

Drillhole VRC71 was a large step-out to the north which failed to reach the projection of the silver zone in this area, however, it did intersect a zone of good grade copper-gold mineralization which indicates that the mineralizing system is still strong in this area and the silver zone should lie below the bottom of this hole. The intersection in VRC71 is 300 metres north of VRC28, which intersected similar high-grade copper-gold mineralization but was also stopped short of the projection of the silver zone. Previously-released Hole VRC57 was stopped short of this copper-gold zone.

Drillhole VRC74 intersected the silver zone from 236 to 254 metres, with several copper-gold zones cut above it. The hole ended in strong porphyry-style mineralization at 0.25% copper and 0.44 g/t gold. This hole lies 70 metres southwest of Hole VRC63 (48 metres at 196 g/t silver including 12 metres at 666.6 g/t silver - previously released) which defines the northeastern corner of the silver zone. The zone remains open to the north and east of these holes.

Drillhole VRC75 intersected the projection of the manto zone at 260 metres, although this hole did not intersect silver mineralization at this depth. This hole is located 78 metres to the south of the silver zone intersection in VRC62 (previously released - 16 metres at 189.3 g/t silver) and additional drilling is required to determine if the zone is present to the west of VRC75.

Drillhole VRC76 was an infill hole which intersected the silver zone between 216 and 268 metres where it was characterized by a wider zone of lower-grade silver mineralization with good copper and gold (32 metres at 41.7 g/t silver, 1.25 % copper and 0.87 g/t gold). VRC76 ended in porphyry mineralization with the last sample at 0.51% copper and 0.19 g/t gold.

Drillhole VRC77 intersected the northern edge of the silver zone with 14 metres of 110.4 g/t silver. Other holes to the north of this one (VRC57, VRC71, VRC28) were stopped above the zone, which remains open to the north of VRC77. A shallower high-grade copper zone (32m at 2.70% copper) forms part of the supergene blanket intersected in several adjacent holes in this area. VRC77 ended in porphyry mineralization with the last sample at 0.33% copper and 0.15 g/t gold.

Core hole FSDH13 intersected the same supergene blanket 200 metres to the southwest of VRC77, with 26.3 metres at 3.87% copper, including 10 metres at 7.59% copper. This hole was abandoned due to drilling difficulties within this high-grade zone, and the last sample in the hole returned 0.96% copper. This hole deepened previous RC hole VRC56 which ended at a depth of 198 metres.

A total of 8,039 metres of reverse circulation (RC) drilling was completed in 24 holes between December 10th, 2013 and March 5th, 2014. An additional 169 metres of diamond drilling in 2 holes was also completed. Holes in the "VRC" series are reverse circulation while the "FSDH" series are diamond drill holes. Assays for seven holes were released on March 17, a further ten holes were released on April 10th and results for the final nine holes are included here. The drill program was designed to collect sufficient data to allow for the planned completion of an initial mineral resource estimate for Filo del Sol later this year.

Commenting on today's news release, Wojtek Wodzicki, President and CEO of NGEx stated, "We are very pleased with the results of this year's exploration program at Filo del Sol which is emerging as the third major discovery made by our exploration team in the last 5 years. We are particularly excited about the high copper, silver, and gold grades in the manto zone and by the potential for a large scale porphyry copper-gold deposit beneath the manto zone. Hole VRC71 is a particularly important hole which hit strong mineralization 300 metres to the north of other drilling. The Filo del Sol alteration zone is one of the largest in this part of the Andes and drilling to date has tested only a small portion of it. Mineralization is open in all directions and at depth and we believe that there is excellent potential to further extend it through additional drilling.

The drilling this year yielded some of the best copper, gold, and silver intercepts ever drilled on our projects. Our success at Filo del Sol this year follows the very successful programs which defined major copper-gold resources at Los Helados and Josemaria. We are extremely proud of our exploration team who this year added to what is already one of the most successful discovery records in the business."

Samples were collected at the drill site by Company personnel with initial splitting carried out at a facility near the drill sites and final splitting completed at the Company's core processing facility located in Copiap , Chile. Individual samples represent final splits from 2 metre intervals down the hole. All samples from the 2014 program are from reverse circulation drill holes. Samples were delivered to Acme Analytical Laboratories S.A. sample preparation facility in Copiap and shipped on to the Acme lab in Santiago, Chile. Samples were crushed, split and 500g was pulverized to 85% passing 200 mesh. Gold analyses were by fire assay fusion with AAS finish on a 30g sample. Silver was analyzed both as part of the 36 element ICP package and also by 4-acid digestion with AAS finish (AAS results shown in table). Copper was analyzed by AAS after a 4-acid digestion(shown in table) and also in three steps of a representative 1 gram from the sub-sample: 1) with a 10% sulphuric acid cold solution, 2) a 10% sodium cyanide digestion of the residue of step 1, and 3) a 3-acid digestion of the residue of step 2. Solutions from each step were analyzed by atomic absorption. Samples were also analyzed for a suite of 36 elements with ICP-ES. Copper and gold standards as well as blanks and duplicates (field, preparation and analysis) were randomly inserted into the sampling sequence for Quality Control. On average, 9% of the submitted samples correspond to Quality Control samples.

There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
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.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.
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.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices – computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors – connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo in Silicon Valley. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be!
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.
