Aurora Gold Corporation Announces That It Has Entered Into an Option Agreement Over the Nova Porto Project in the Tapajos Gold Province, Para State, Brazil and Has Commenced an Initial Exploration Program

Aurora Gold Corporation Announces That It Has Entered Into an Option Agreement Over the Nova Porto Project in the Tapajos Gold P

VANCOUVER, BC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 10/12/05 -- AURORA GOLD CORPORATION (the "Company") (OTC BB: ARXG) announces that the company has entered into an option agreement over the Nova Porto project area and has commenced a reconnaissance exploration program. The Nova Porto project is located in the rich and largely unexplored Tapajos gold province in Para State, Brazil and covers an area of approximately 34,000 hectares. The option agreement covers two exploration licenses.

The Company is targeting large tonnage low to medium grade gold deposits such as the Brazauro Tocantinzinho project.

The Tapajos Gold Province comprises an area of approximately 300km by 350km located in south westerly reaches of the state of Para. The dominant lithologies are composed of Paleoproterozoic aged volcanic and plutonic rocks and hosts gold mineralization related to two metallogenic events. The older event comprises orogenic mesothermal shear hosted lode deposits, while the younger event related to emplacement of post-orogenic alkaline granitoids as volcanic edifices and along structural corridors, is constituted by epithermal to epizonal type deposits.

The Company's project area lies on a dominant NW faulted contact between the Parauari Intrusive Suite and the later Maloquinha Suite, and this contact has been the focus of large-scale alluvial workings.

Approximately 40km to the South West of the project area is the Brazauro Resources Corporation owned Tocantinzinho project. The Tocantinzinho project has had a long history of exploration and now Brazauro boasts a large tonnage operation with the initial NI43-101 resource estimate due out late in 2005. Several significant intersections are reported including 165.4m @ 1.7g/t, 174m @ 2.4g/t and 170m @ 1.8g/t.

The Company's Nova Porto project has many similarities to the large Tocantinzinho project including, immediate proximity to large-scale alluvial mining, proximity to the faulted contact of the Parauari Intrusive Suite and the later Maloquinha Suite, (as described above and which hosts many other gold deposits in the region), and both projects share a North West trend.

The option agreement allows for the Company to earn a 100% interest in the Novo Porto project via structured cash payments and leaving the vendors with a 2% NSR. The total option agreement payments for the two licences are structured as follows: November 15, 2005 -- USD $25,000; May 15, 2006 -- USD $75,000; May 15, 2007 -- USD $100,000 and May 15, 2008 -- USD $150,000. Aurora Gold may withdraw from the option agreement at any time. Should Aurora Gold decide to pursue either or both exploration licences after May 15, 2009 then a final payment of USD $1,850,000 per licence for a total of USD $ 3,700,000 would be paid. The total payment for one licence is USD $2,200,000 and for the two licences is USD $4,050,000.

The Company has initiated a rock chip and outcrop-sampling program together with a close spaced soil geochemistry program to delineate the anomalous targets for follow up drill testing.

Results from the sampling and geochemistry programs are expected within the next two weeks.

Aurora Gold Corporation is a mineral exploration company whose stock trades under the symbol "ARXG" on the NASD OTC Bulletin Board.

Don’t go chasing waterfall … development, that is. According to a recent post by Madison Moore on Medium featuring insights from several software delivery industry leaders, waterfall is – while still popular – not the best way to win in the marketplace. With methodologies like Agile, DevOps and Continuous Delivery becoming ever more prominent over the past 15 years or so, waterfall is old news. Or, is it? Moore cites a recent study by Gartner: “According to Gartner’s IT Key Metrics Data report, ...

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control.

You often hear the two titles of "DevOps" and "Immutable Infrastructure" used independently. In his session at DevOps Summit, John Willis, Technical Evangelist for Docker, covered the union between the two topics and why this is important. He provided an overview of Immutable Infrastructure then showed how an Immutable Continuous Delivery pipeline can be applied as a best practice for "DevOps." He ended the session with some interesting case study examples.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation.

This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
We all know that end users experience the internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business.

The next XaaS is CICDaaS. Why? Because CICD saves developers a huge amount of time. CD is an especially great option for projects that require multiple and frequent contributions to be integrated.

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...

The executives loved everything we discussed and agreed that if such an environment existed, it would make transformation much easier. They just didn't believe it was reali...

"Opsani helps the enterprise adopt containers, help them move their infrastructure into this modern world of DevOps, accelerate the delivery of new features into production, and really get them going on the container path," explained Ross Schibler, CEO of Opsani, and Peter Nickolov, CTO of Opsani, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps Summit at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...
The “Digital Era” is forcing us to engage with new methods to build, operate and maintain applications. This transformation also implies an evolution to more and more intelligent applications to better engage with the customers, while creating significant market differentiators. In both cases, the cloud has become a key enabler to embrace this digital revolution. So, moving to the cloud is no longer the question; the new questions are HOW and WHEN. To make this equation even more complex, most ...

Many organizations are now looking to DevOps maturity models to gauge their DevOps adoption and compare their maturity to their peers. However, as enterprise organizations rush to adopt DevOps, moving past experimentation to embrace it at scale, they are in danger of falling into the trap that they have fallen into time and time again. Unfortunately, we've seen this movie before, and we know how it ends: badly.
