Barisan Gold Provides Exploration Update at Upper Tengkereng Prospect

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/05/14 -- Barisan Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE: BG) is pleased to provide an update on its exploration activities at its Upper Tengkereng gold-copper porphyry discovery, located in the Province of Aceh, Indonesia.

Activities at Upper Tengkereng are at an all time high with two deep (1,750-metre) drill rigs operating 24 hours per day. Below is a summary of results at the recently completed UTD-006 hole, as well as summary of operations at the active UTD-007 and UTD-008 holes.

Hole UTD-006

Final assays for hole UTD-006 have been received from the laboratory. From 4 to 990 metres, UTD-006 returned 986 metres of 0.5 g/t gold + 0.3% copper (0.6% copper equivalent at current market prices), including 272 metres of 0.6 g/t gold + 0.6% copper (1.0% copper equivalent at current market prices) within 594 metres of 0.6 g/t gold + 0.4% copper (0.8% copper equivalent at current market prices). On a whole, UTD-006 is the highest-grade hole drilled so far at Upper Tengkereng.

Upon further review of the core, UTD-006 intersected two distinct but continuous mineralized zones from 142 to 736 metres that returned significant mineralization.

From 142 to 362 metres, UTD-006 intersected a high-grade covellite rich silica-pyrophyllite-alunite zone, which returned a 220 metre intercept grading 0.6 g/t gold + 0.6% copper (1.0% copper equivalent at current market prices). This covellite rich zone was first intersected in UTD-002 where, from 226 to 340 metres, a 114 metre intercept returned 0.3 g/t gold + 0.7% copper (0.9% copper equivalent at current market prices). The covellite rich zone appears to sit close to surface and has returned the highest-grade copper assays so far intersected at Upper Tengkereng. It appears to be around 200+ metres in thickness and remains open in all directions. UTD-008, currently being drilled, continues to test this zone.

From 362 to 736 metres, UTD-006 intersected a high grade chalcocite-chalcopyrite rich zone, which returned a 374 metre intercept grading 0.6 g/t gold + 0.3% copper (0.7% copper equivalent at current market prices), including a 76 metre intercept grading 0.8 g/t gold + 0.3% copper (0.9% copper equivalent at current market prices) from 634 to 710 metres. This chalcocite-chalcopyrite rich zone was first intersected in UTD-004 where, from 656 to 906 metres, UTD-004 intersected 250 metres grading 0.6 g/t gold + 0.4% copper (0.7% copper equivalent at current market prices), including 160 metres grading 0.7 g/t gold + 0.4% copper (0.9% copper equivalent at current market prices). This high-grade zone appears to sit immediately underneath the rich covellite zone, starts at approximately 350 metres in depth, is at least 500 metres in thickness and remains open in all directions and at depth. UTD-008 is also testing the extent of this zone below the covellite rich zone.

Following the results of UTD-006, Barisan Gold has now identified three distinct high-grade zones at Upper Tengkereng, all of which are open in all directions and at depth. Drilling over the next few months will look to expand these high-grade zones, delineate them in more details and target the potential for additional high-grade zones. An updated investor presentation can be found on the Barisan Gold website, where a number of tables and maps show the location and grade distribution of all three high-grade zones.

Hole UTD-007

Drilling at hole UTD-007 began on May 7, 2014. UTD-007 is being drilled with an azimuth of 220 degrees and an inclination of 87 degrees from a new drill platform that has been built on the north side of the highway. The objectives of UTD-007 are to test the vertical true depth and length of the high-grade zone discovered on the eastern edge of the deposit in holes UTD-002, UTD-003 & UTD-005. Due to topographical challenges, the new drill platform could not be built immediately above the high-grade zone but is located 22 metres to northwest of the high-grade zone.

As of June 3, 2014, drilling at UTD-007 had reached 486 metres. Drilling has been slower than anticipated due to the unusually high rainfall experienced at site during most of the month of May. Since May 24, 2014, the rain has subsided and drilling is now progressing at a normal rate.

From surface until approximately 162 metres in length, UTD-007 intersected strong argillic-advanced argillic hydrothermal breccia mineralization. All four holes (UTD-003/004/005/006) drilled from that part of the deposit have intersected this mineralization in the first 100-200 metres from surface. This zone has returned material gold and copper assays in all previous four holes.

From 162 to 310 metres in length, UTD-007 intersected limestone sulfidic breccia mineralization. UTD-007 is being drilling from the eastern edge of the deposit adjacent to the limestone surface contact zone. Indications are that the limestone contact zone slightly curves into the porphyry deposit on the eastern edge at a depth of 150-300 metres. The limestone intersected contains gold and copper mineralization.

From approximately 326 metres until the present position, UTD-007 has intersected strong argillic altered feldspar porphyry intercut by hornblende feldspar porphyry mineralization as it entered the core of the deposit. Mineralization intersected in this section is akin to that in the high-grade zone intersected in holes UTD-002/003/005. Should this prove correct, UTD-007 would have extended the high-grade zone by another 100 metres closer to surface.

Hole UTD-007 is being planned to a maximum depth of 1,500 metres or until UTD-007 exits the high grade zone vertically or horizontally.

Hole UTD-008

Drilling at hole UTD-008 began on May 23, 2014. The hole is being drilled with an azimuth of 235 degrees and an inclination of 80 degrees from the same drill platform where holes UTD-005/006 were drilled. Barisan Gold had initially planned to drill UTD-008 from a new drill platform built in the south of the deposit area, however heavy rainfall during the month of May has rendered such a plan impossible due to the potential for landslides. That proposed hole will now be drilled later this year during the dry season.

Hole UTD-008 is being drilled such to scissor cut hole UTD-002. The objectives of UTD-008 are to (1) test the extension of the covellite rich zone intersected in UTD-002/006 and (2) test the extension of the chalcocite-chalcopyrite rich zone intersected in UTD-004/006.

As of June 3, 2014, drilling at UTD-008 had reached 462 metres. Drilling has been faster than anticipated, averaging over 40 metres per day.

From surface until approximately 62 metres in length, UTD-008 intersected strong argillic-advanced argillic hydrothermal breccia mineralization. Hole UTD-006 intersected this mineralization in the first 75 metres from surface and returned material gold and copper assays.

From approximately 62 metres until the present position, UTD-008 has intersected strong advanced argillic altered covellite rich silica-pyrophyllite-alunite porphyry mineralization. Mineralization intersected in this section is akin to that in the high-grade zone intersected in holes UTD-002/006. Should this prove correct, UTD-008 would have extended the high-grade zone by another 100 metres closer to surface and by 100 metres further at depth.

Hole UTD-008 is being planned to a maximum depth of 1,500 metres or until UTD-008 exits the high-grade chalcocite-chalcopyrite rich zone vertically or horizontally.

Barisan Gold retained the laboratory services of PT Intertek Utama Services of Jakarta, Indonesia, which, in the case of UTD-006, employed the fire assay method (FA50) on gold samples and for other precious and base metal analyses, ICP with multi acid digestion.

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
As organizations realize the scope of the Internet of Things, gaining key insights from Big Data, through the use of advanced analytics, becomes crucial. However, IoT also creates the need for petabyte scale storage of data from millions of devices. A new type of Storage is required which seamlessly integrates robust data analytics with massive scale. These storage systems will act as “smart systems” provide in-place analytics that speed discovery and enable businesses to quickly derive meaningful and actionable insights. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Paul Turner, Chief Marketing Officer at...

Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions. Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer. Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessions, I wanted to share some of my observations on emerging trends. As cyber security serves as a fou...
The Internet of Everything is re-shaping technology trends–moving away from “request/response” architecture to an “always-on” Streaming Web where data is in constant motion and secure, reliable communication is an absolute necessity. As more and more THINGS go online, the challenges that developers will need to address will only increase exponentially. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Todd Greene, Founder & CEO of PubNub, exploreed the current state of IoT connectivity and review key trends and technology requirements that will drive the Internet of Things from hype to reality.
Continuous processes around the development and deployment of applications are both impacted by -- and a benefit to -- the Internet of Things trend. To help better understand the relationship between DevOps and a plethora of new end-devices and data please welcome Gary Gruver, consultant, author and a former IT executive who has led many large-scale IT transformation projects, and John Jeremiah, Technology Evangelist at Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), on Twitter at @j_jeremiah. The discussion is moderated by me, Dana Gardner, Principal Analyst at Interarbor Solutions.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound effect on the world, and what should we expect to see over the next couple of years.
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now all corporate assets – people, objects, and spaces – can share information about themselves and thei...
PubNub has announced the release of BLOCKS, a set of customizable microservices that give developers a simple way to add code and deploy features for realtime apps.PubNub BLOCKS executes business logic directly on the data streaming through PubNub’s network without splitting it off to an intermediary server controlled by the customer.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" in this scenario: microservice A (releases daily) depends on a couple of additions to backend B (re...
Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true change and transformation possible.

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...
