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.

The notion of improving operational efficiency is conspicuously absent from the healthcare debate - neither Obamacare nor the newly proposed GOP plan discusses the impact that a step-function improvement in efficiency could have on access to healthcare (through more capacity), quality of healthcare services (through reduced wait times for patients) or cost (through better utilization of scarce, expensive assets).
Some people are directors, managers, and administrators. Others are disrupters. Eddie Webb (@edwardawebb) is an IT Disrupter for Software Development Platforms at Liberty Mutual and was a presenter at the 2016 All Day DevOps conference. His talk, Organically DevOps: Building Quality and Security into the Software Supply Chain at Liberty Mutual, looked at Liberty Mutual's transformation to Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery, and DevOps.

Our work, both with clients and with tools, has lead us to wonder how it is that organizations are handling compliance issues in the cloud. The big cloud vendors offer compliance for their infrastructure, but the shared responsibility model requires that you take certain steps to meet compliance requirements. Which lead us to start poking around a little more. We wanted to get a picture of what was available, and how it was being used. There is a lot of fluidity in this space, as in all things c...
The goal of Microservices is to improve software delivery speed and increase system safety as scale increases. Microservices being modular these are faster to change and enables an evolutionary architecture where systems can change, as the business needs change. Microservices can scale elastically and by being service oriented can enable APIs natively. Microservices also reduce implementation and release cycle time and enables continuous delivery. This paper provides a logical overview of the Mi...
Gone are the days when application development was the daunting task of the highly skilled developers backed with strong IT skills, low code application development has democratized app development and empowered a new generation of citizen developers. There was a time when app development was in the domain of people with complex coding and technical skills. We called these people by various names like programmers, coders, techies, and they usually worked in a world oblivious of the everyday pri...
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 ...
Some journey to cloud on a mission, others, a deadline. Change management is useful when migrating to public, private or hybrid cloud environments in either case. For most, stakeholder engagement peaks during the planning and post migration phases of a project. Legacy engagements are fairly direct: projects follow a linear progression of activities (the “waterfall” approach) – change managers and application coders work from the same functional and technical requirements. Enablement and develo...
Admiral Calcote - also known as Lee Calcote (@lcalcote) or the Ginger Geek to his friends - gave a presentation entitled Characterizing and Contrasting Container Orchestrators at the 2016 All Day DevOps conference. Okay, he isn't really an admiral - nor does anyone call him that - but he used the title admiral to describe what container orchestrators do, relating it to an admiral directing a fleet of container ships. You could also say that they are like the conductor of an orchestra, directing...
The past few years have brought a sea change in the way applications are architected, developed, and consumed—increasing both the complexity of testing and the business impact of software failures. How can software testing professionals keep pace with modern application delivery, given the trends that impact both architectures (cloud, microservices, and APIs) and processes (DevOps, agile, and continuous delivery)? This is where continuous testing comes in. D
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
The dynamic nature of the cloud means that change is a constant when it comes to modern cloud-based infrastructure. Delivering modern applications to end users, therefore, is a constantly shifting challenge. Delivery automation helps IT Ops teams ensure that apps are providing an optimal end user experience over hybrid-cloud and multi-cloud environments, no matter what the current state of the infrastructure is. To employ a delivery automation strategy that reflects your business rules, making r...
Gaining visibility in today’s sprawling cloud infrastructure is complex and laborious, involving drilling down into tools offered by various cloud services providers. Enterprise IT organizations need smarter and effective tools at their disposal in order to address this pertinent problem. Gaining a 360 - degree view of the cloud costs requires collection and analysis of the cost data across all cloud infrastructures used inside an enterprise.

Kubernetes is an open source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Kubernetes was originally built by Google, leveraging years of experience with managing container workloads, and is now a Cloud Native Compute Foundation (CNCF) project. Kubernetes has been widely adopted by the community, supported on all major public and private cloud providers, and is gaining rapid adoption in enterprises. However, Kubernetes may seem intimidating and complex ...
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.
For DevOps teams, the concepts behind service-oriented architecture (SOA) are nothing new. A style of software design initially made popular in the 1990s, SOA was an alternative to a monolithic application; essentially a collection of coarse-grained components that communicated with each other. Communication would involve either simple data passing or two or more services coordinating some activity. SOA served as a valid approach to solving many architectural problems faced by businesses, as app...
Many IT organizations have come to learn that leveraging cloud infrastructure is not just unavoidable, it’s one of the most effective paths for IT organizations to become more responsive to business needs. Yet with the cloud comes new challenges, including minimizing downtime, decreasing the cost of operations, and preventing employee burnout to name a few. As companies migrate their processes and procedures to their new reality of a cloud-based infrastructure, an incident management solution...
Cloud Governance means many things to many people. Heck, just the word cloud means different things depending on who you are talking to. While definitions can vary, controlling access to cloud resources is invariably a central piece of any governance program. Enterprise cloud computing has transformed IT. Cloud computing decreases time-to-market, improves agility by allowing businesses to adapt quickly to changing market demands, and, ultimately, drives down costs.
Recent survey done across top 500 fortune companies shows almost 70% of the CIO have either heard about IAC from their infrastructure head or they are on their way to implement IAC. Yet if you look under the hood while some level of automation has been done, most of the infrastructure is still managed in much tradition/legacy way. So, what is Infrastructure as Code? how do you determine if your IT infrastructure is truly automated?
Every few years, a disruptive force comes along that prompts us to reframe our understanding of what something means, or how it works. For years, the notion of what a computer is and how you make one went pretty much unchallenged. Then virtualization came along, followed by cloud computing, and most recently containers. Suddenly the old rules no longer seemed to apply, or at least they didn’t always apply. These disruptors made us reconsider our IT worldview.
