Lydian Drilling Intersects 98 Meters at 1.9 g/t Gold Below Current Pit-Shell at Erato and 60 Meters at 1.4 g/t Gold 80 Meters Outside the Pit Shell at Arshak

More gold intersected 600 meters to the east of Erato

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 11/20/12 -- Lydian International Ltd. (TSX:LYD) ("Lydian" or "the Company"), a gold-focused mineral exploration and development company, today announced results from additional drilling at its Amulsar gold project in Armenia. Amulsar is a feasibility stage (see press release September 7, 2012) high-sulfidation style, heap-leach gold project with reported CIM compliant Proven and Probable reserves of 2.29M Oz Gold at 0.8 g/t and 9.98M Oz Silver at 3.3 g/t and a resource of 0.2M Oz Gold at 1.0 g/t in Measured and Indicated categories and 1.1M Oz Gold at 0.9 g/t in the Inferred category.

Results have been received from a further 33 drill holes at Amulsar including infill drilling at Erato and Tigranes and further step-out drilling at Arshak (see Table and Figures in Appendix).

Notable intersections include:


-  DDA-341 (Artavasdes)                  29 meters at 1.0 g/t gold,

-  DDA-352 (Crushing Site)               40 meters at 1.0 g/t gold,         
-  DDA-353 (Tigranes)                    20 meters at 1.0 g/t gold; and     
                                         19 meters at 1.1 g/t gold,         
-  DDA-354 (Artavasdes)                  13 meters at 1.0 g/t gold,         
-  DDA-357 (Tigranes)                    14.1 meters at 1.8 g/t gold (EOH), 
-  DDA-358 (Erato)                       98 meters at 1.9 g/t gold,         
-  DDA-360 (Tigranes)                    60 meters at 1.0 g/t gold,         
-  DDA-361 (Tigranes)                    68 meters at 1.2 g/t gold,         
-  DDA-362 (Crushing Site)               19 meters at 1.0 g/t gold; and     
                                         21 meters at 1.0 g/t gold,         
-  RCA-468 (Arshak)                      16 meters at 1.0 g/t gold,         
-  RCA-471 (Arshak)                      12 meters at 1.0 g/t gold; and     
                                         29 meters at 1.0 g/t gold,         
-  RCA-476 (Tigranes NE)                 12 meters at 1.3 g/t gold,         
-  RCA-480 (Tigranes)                    17 meters at 1.0 g/t gold          

Drilling at Amulsar continues to outline new areas of gold mineralization, both at depth and laterally around the margins of the current pit-shell. Drill hole DDA-358 returned 98 meters at 1.9 g/t gold below the current Erato pit-shell (see Cross Section A-A'), and DDA-350 returned 61 meters at 1.1 g/t gold in the east of Erato, where further drilling is currently underway.

At Tigranes, drilling is also identifying further gold potential at depth, with DDA-348 returning 8 meters at 1 g/t gold and 20.9 meters at 1.2 g/t gold (EOH) up to 60 meters vertically beneath the current pit-shell (see Cross Section B-B').

Following the discovery of gold mineralization at the proposed crusher location some 600 meters to the east of the Erato pit-shell (see Press Release, September 24, 2012), further confirmatory drilling has been conducted and has returned 33 meters at 1 g/t (DDA-352) and two separate intersections of 17 meters and 18 meters at 1 g/t gold (DDA-362; see Figure in Appendix) Further geological work will be carried out to ascertain the extent of this mineralization and whether it forms a continuation of gold mineralization at Erato.

Drilling at Arshak continues to confirm the potential for resource extension towards the east and southeast. Notably DDA-347 returned 60 meters at 1.4 g/t gold and RCA-471 returned 11 meters and 29 meters at 1 g/t gold with both holes located approximately 80 meters outside the current pit-shell.

CEO and President of Lydian International, Dr. Tim Coughlin says "This is another solid round of drill results further confirming the resource potential at Amulsar. Drilling at Erato has returned exciting results all year and new results from close to the proposed crusher location, some 600m east of the Erato pit-shell are particularly encouraging. Drilling continues on-site and is likely to do so until winter fully settles in over the coming weeks."

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

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.

Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...

Technology vendors and analysts are eager to paint a rosy picture of how wonderful IoT is and why your deployment will be great with the use of their products and services. While it is easy to showcase successful IoT solutions, identifying IoT systems that missed the mark or failed can often provide more in the way of key lessons learned. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Peter Vanderminden, Principal Industry Analyst for IoT & Digital Supply Chain to Flatiron Strategies, will focus on how IoT de...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
What does it look like when you have access to cloud infrastructure and platform under the same roof?
