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."

Big Data engines are powering a lot of service businesses right now. Data is collected from users from wearable technologies, web behaviors, purchase behavior as well as several arbitrary data points we’d never think of. The demand for faster and bigger engines to crunch and serve up the data to services is growing exponentially. You see a LOT of correlation between “Cloud” and “Big Data” but on Big Data and “Hybrid,” where hybrid hosting is the sanest approach to the Big Data Infrastructure pro...

We all know the latest numbers: Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2016, up 30 percent from last year, and will reach 20.8 billion by 2020. We're rapidly approaching a data production of 40 zettabytes a day – more than we can every physically store, and exabytes and yottabytes are just around the corner. For many that’s a good sign, as data has been proven to equal money – IF it’s ingested, integrated, and analyzed fast enough. Without real-ti...
I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Unless your company can spend a lot of money on new technology, re-engineering your environment and hiring a comprehensive cybersecurity team, you will most likely move to the cloud or seek external service partnerships. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Darren Guccione, CEO of Keeper Security, revealed what you need to know when it comes to encryption in the cloud.
We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.
