Waseco Resources Reports High Grade Gold Intercepts at Battle Mountain, Nevada

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 11/12/12 -- Waseco Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:WRI)(FRANKFURT:WSE) is pleased to report the results of Hole #5 from its diamond drill program at Battle Mountain Ridge, ("BMR") in Nevada.

Hole #5 (drilled at -55 degrees to the east) returned an intersection of 25.39g/t Au (0.9 oz/t) over 3.7m (12 feet) in the interval 150-153.7m down hole (450-465 feet). This interval included intersections of:


   47.6 g/t Au (1.68 oz/t) over 0.9m (3 feet) and                           
   61g/t Au (2.15 oz/t) over 0.6m (2 feet)                                  

This hole is exceptional in that it has intersected the highest grade gold mineralization reported from any known exploration program completed on the property to date. This high grade zone remains open laterally and to depth. An upper zone, higher in the hole, between 128-141.72m (420-465 feet), returned gold values averaging of 1.82g/t Au (0.06oz) over 13.72m (45 feet).

These intersections were returned from the North Zone and represent the first analyses of drill core from the property. The Waseco program has utilized HQ (63mm diameter) core drilling for sample recovery at Battle Mountain Ridge. All previous programs utilized reverse circulation ("RC") drilling techniques.

The two intersections correlate well with an earlier RC drill hole, #07-03, approximately 25 metres (80 feet) above Hole #5, that returned 29 metres (95 feet) of 1g/t Au. The intersections appear to be approximately 85% of true widths based on core angles and information plotted on cross section.

"These results are very exciting, as they confirm the presence of a gold zone with grades that are significantly higher than the average grade being commercially mined in the camp. The North Zone has a strike length extending at least 400m and remains open in all directions. We are very confident that this zone can be significantly expanded." stated Derek Bartlett, Waseco Director and Project Manager.

Drill core from follow-up Hole # 6, drilled into the North Zone approximately 50m to the north of Hole #5, has been split and delivered for assaying. All of the assays from the current program are being analysed by the ALS Chemex Laboratory in Winnemucca, with normal QA and QC procedures being followed.

The North Zone, previously identified by surface sampling and RC drilling methods, is now much better understood in terms of style of gold mineralization and structure. Earlier drilling successfully intersected the North Zone above the current hole in several intersections including values as high as 1.13g/t Au over 23m, 1.55g/t Au over 15.2m and 1g/t Au over 29m. A schematic cross-section of Hole #5 can be seen on the Waseco web site on Section 8570 N.

Two additional gold mineralized zones have also been identified on the property. The South Zone was tested during this campaign and confirmed to contain gold values and widths consistent with previous work. The third known zone on the property, the West Zone, has not yet been tested by core drilling but is well documented with historic RC drill results. A summary of results of the entire Waseco program will be provided once results from Hole #6 are available.

The BMR is strategically located immediately adjacent to Newmont's Trenton Canyon Gold Mine and within 10km of Barrick and Goldcorp's Marigold Mine operations to the north and Newmont's Phoenix Mine to the south. More than 18 Million ounces of gold have been found in the area surrounding BMR on the prolific Battle Mountain Gold Trend.

"Being in the midst of world-class gold mines that are operated by the likes of Barrick -Goldcorp, and Newmont, provides a strong sense of comfort that BMR may represent a repeat of the occurrences only a few hundred metres away at Trenton Canyon, literally on the next hill side." commented Company President, Richard Williams. "The BMR mineralization is very similar to that at Trenton Canyon".

Prior to Waseco's program, the claims have been reported to host a non-N-I 43-101-compliant historic Resource of 2,630,836 tonnes of 0.9 grams per tonne Au reported by previous operators in 1997. (The resource calculation is historical in nature and has not been reviewed by Waseco geologists and as such, should not be relied upon). Based upon results from the 73 reverse circulation holes drilled to date, the three known zones remain open laterally and to depth. In 2007, the most recent previous drilling campaign, six of the holes completed by Sparton, confirmed previous drilling results with good intercepts, and the seventh was a step out to the east which located a new (fourth) gold zone. Geophysics and geochemistry carried out at that time also identified a number of near surface, coincident, anomalies that are now considered to be priority targets.

A. Lee Barker, P. Eng., P. Geol., a the Qualified Person pursuant to the guidelines of National Instrument 43-101 has reviewed and approved the geological content of this release.

Waseco has the right to earn a 75% interest in the property, subject to a production royalty, by spending $900,000 over a three year period. Sparton Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SRI) would retain a 25% interest in the property.

Waseco Resources Inc. is an exploration company focused on gold exploration in Nevada and Kalimantan and uranium exploration in the Quebec Labrador Trough. The Company is debt free and trades on the TSX Venture Exchange and the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. There are currently approximately 30.3 million shares issued and outstanding.

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices. To retrofit existing programs across all these devices using traditional programming methods is very costly and time consuming – often prohibitively so.

Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
