TORONTO, ONTARIO and LAKEWOOD, COLORADO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/17/14 -- Energy Fuels Inc. (TSX:EFR)(NYSE MKT:UUUU) ("Energy Fuels" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Wyoming Gold Mining Company, Inc., has entered into a definitive agreement that will create a strategic joint venture for the purpose of facilitating the future development or sale of the Company's Copper King gold/copper project (the "Project"). Upon completion of the transaction, which is expected to occur on or before July 2, 2014, Energy Fuels will contribute the Project to CK Mining Corp., a newly-formed private company. As consideration, the Company will receive a combination of cash and newly issued common stock of CK Mining Corp., representing fifty percent (50%) of its issued and outstanding shares after giving effect to such issuance. The remaining interest in CK Mining Corp. will be held by a private investor group with extensive experience in developing gold projects and building mining companies. Completion of the transaction is subject to regulatory approvals.
The Company obtained the Copper King Project as a part of its August 2013 acquisition of Strathmore Minerals Corp. ("Strathmore"), which is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Energy Fuels. While gold and copper are not a core part of the Company's uranium business, the Company desires to retain a substantial interest in the Project in order to realize the significant expected benefits of its future development or sale.
The Copper King Project is located in the Silver Crown Mining District of southeast Wyoming, approximately 20 miles west of the city of Cheyenne. According to an August 24, 2012 updated technical report, prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101, and which can be found under Strathmore's profile on SEDAR, the Copper King Project contains 59.75 million tons of measured and indicated mineral resources with average grades of 0.015 ounces/ton Au and 0.187% Cu, containing approximately 926,000 ounces of gold and 223 million pounds of copper. In addition, the Project contains approximately 15.62 million tons of inferred mineral resources with average grades of 0.011 ounces/ton Au and 0.20% Cu, containing 174,000 ounces of gold and 63 million pounds of copper.
Stephen P. Antony, President and CEO of Energy Fuels stated: "Energy Fuels is continuing our asset rationalization efforts, which includes maximizing the value of our existing assets. The Copper King Project is a highly prospective gold and silver project in Wyoming, a state that welcomes mining and has a highly experienced workforce. We felt the ideal way for Energy Fuels to maximize the expected benefits of the Copper King Project was to enter into a strategic venture with our new business partners. We are excited to continue our involvement in this excellent project and expect to continue our asset rationalization and cost-saving efforts."
Stephen P. Antony, P.E., President & CEO of Energy Fuels, is a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 and has reviewed and approved the technical disclosure contained in this news release.

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, ...

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...

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...

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
