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.

With the modern notion of digital transformation, enterprises are chipping away at the fundamental organizational and operational structures that have been with us since the nineteenth century or earlier. One remarkable casualty: the business process. Business processes have become so ingrained in how we envision large organizations operating and the roles people play within them that relegating them to the scrap heap is almost unimaginable, and unquestionably transformative. In the Digital ...
These days, APIs have become an integral part of the digital transformation journey for all enterprises. Every digital innovation story is connected to APIs . But have you ever pondered over to know what are the source of these APIs? Let me explain - APIs sources can be varied, internal or external, solving different purposes, but mostly categorized into the following two categories. Data lakes is a term used to represent disconnected but relevant data that are used by various business units wit...
Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reducti...
Most of the time there is a lot of work involved to move to the cloud, and most of that isn't really related to AWS or Azure or Google Cloud. Before we talk about public cloud vendors and DevOps tools, there are usually several technical and non-technical challenges that are connected to it and that every company needs to solve to move to the cloud. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Stefano Bellasio, CEO and founder of Cloud Academy Inc., will discuss what the tools, disciplines, and cultural...
Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...

Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Me...
‘Trend’ is a pretty common business term, but its definition tends to vary by industry. In performance monitoring, trend, or trend shift, is a key metric that is used to indicate change. Change is inevitable. Today’s websites must frequently update and change to keep up with competition and attract new users, but such changes can have a negative impact on the user experience if not managed properly. The dynamic nature of the Internet makes it necessary to constantly monitor different metrics. O...
Agile has finally jumped the technology shark, expanding outside the software world. Enterprises are now increasingly adopting Agile practices across their organizations in order to successfully navigate the disruptive waters that threaten to drown them. In our quest for establishing change as a core competency in our organizations, this business-centric notion of Agile is an essential component of Agile Digital Transformation. In the years since the publication of the Agile Manifesto, the conn...
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.
There is a huge demand for responsive, real-time mobile and web experiences, but current architectural patterns do not easily accommodate applications that respond to events in real time. Common solutions using message queues or HTTP long-polling quickly lead to resiliency, scalability and development velocity challenges.

Many organizations adopt DevOps to reduce cycle times and deliver software faster; some take on DevOps to drive higher quality and better end-user experience; others look to DevOps for a clearer line-of-sight to customers to drive better business impacts. In truth, these three foundations go together. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit 21st Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Co-Chair Andi Mann, industry experts will discuss how leading organizations build application success from all...
The last two years has seen discussions about cloud computing evolve from the public / private / hybrid split to the reality that most enterprises will be creating a complex, multi-cloud strategy. Companies are wary of committing all of their resources to a single cloud, and instead are choosing to spread the risk – and the benefits – of cloud computing across multiple providers and internal infrastructures, as they follow their business needs. Will this approach be successful? How large is the ...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
"NetApp's vision is how we help organizations manage data - delivering the right data in the right place, in the right time, to the people who need it, and doing it agnostic to what the platform is," explained Josh Atwell, Developer Advocate for NetApp, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
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 ...
One of the biggest challenges with adopting a DevOps mentality is: new applications are easily adapted to cloud-native, microservice-based, or containerized architectures - they can be built for them - but old applications need complex refactoring. On the other hand, these new technologies can require relearning or adapting new, oftentimes more complex, methodologies and tools to be ready for production.
