The La Viuda Concessions comprising the AuroTellurio Property are less than a mile from the La Bambolla mine where gold-tellurium mineralization was discovered in the early 1900's. The AuroTellurio Property surrounds the La Bambolla mine area to the east and south and covers potentially mineralized areas over extensive, adjoining areas to the east, south and west.
California Gold has started Phase 1 of their exploration program.

The Company has delineated three drilling targets within their mining concessions. Target 1 is where tellurium-gold mineralization with similar characteristics as those present in the La Bambolla deposit is expected to be intercepted. The second is the La Viuda Target, where the Company's objective is to find precious metal and tellurium mineralization in highly siliceous veins with abundant manganese oxides. The third is a deep-seated mineralized target associated with an igneous intrusive detected by two separate geophysical surveys at estimated depths in the range of 400 meters.

Silver Bull Resources is a mineral developer out of Canada with a primary focus on the rich, underdeveloped potential of world-class mining areas like Coahuila State, Mexico, where the company’s Sierra Mojada project just saw the follow-up NI 43-101 Technical Report update (in furtherance of the May 22 report on the project, filed with SEDAR yesterday).
The mineral resource estimate contained in the report (compiled by trusted ally and top international mining consulting firm, SRK Consulting, also out of Canada) shows a sizeable, 39% increase in the open-pittable silver resource in the Shallow Silver Zone (at an economic cut-off grade of 15g/t) that was looked at in the prior report (a whopping 52% increase to the measured and indicated silver resource). With a secondary zinc target that is equally rich, SVBL has quite a mine on their hands at Sierra Mojada and the measured silver figure of 3.688M tonnes (average grade of 57 g/t or 6.714M troy ounces Ag) is a tantalizing prospect indeed (roughly 45M tonnes at 45 g/t indicated, or 8M tonnes at 40 g/t inferred, that’s around 65.4M and 10.4M troy ounces respectively).
The Shallow Silver Zone looks exceptionally feasible and projections for open pit operations at baseline pricing of $22/oz Ag and $1.25/lb zinc (65% and 95% projected recovery of respective resources, baselines derived from London Energy Metals Consensus Forecast) are juicy when taking into account development costs, estimated at $1.50/tonne to mine, $4/tonne to process the silver, and $42/tonne to process the zinc. Cut-off grade projections are based on geological analogs (Coeur D’Alene Mine’s Rochester Mine in Nevada for the silver, which is an oxide silver deposit and Zincore Metals’ Peruvian Accha zinc deposit assessment for the zinc resource).
With some 60% of the mineralized body (98-295 feet thick and as much as 656 feet wide in parts) at or near the surface along strike, open to the east and west, the Shallow Silver Zone has management at SVBL working overtime out of excitement. There is a ripe secondary zinc exploration target (4-6M tonnes at around 8% grading) as well covered in the report, with a hefty amount of historical data (3.7k channel and some 1k long hole measurements) to back up the potential target’s validity. Associate Consultant of Geology for SRK, Dr. Gilles Arseneau, P.Geo., acted as the NI 43-101 Qualified Person for the report.
Open pit metrics for the Shallow Silver Zone are done in a Whittle pit shell and constitute a solid strategic mine planning solution, thanks to the incredibly powerful Gemcom Whittle™ modeling engine. The resources have been estimated using standard geostatistical interpretation (kriging) block modeling in multi-pass with 5 meter cube sections (grade estimates derived from capped 2 meter assay composites, with capping levels at 700g/t Ag for diamond drill holes and 900 g/t for long holes/channel samples). With the measured classification given to resources that have a minimum of 10 composites in the first pass (using a 5x5x20 meter ellipse) and indicated classification given to blocks where a minimum of six composites and three drill holes occurred (60×60 meter ellipse – with the rest classified as inferred), we have a very good portrait of the future production potential from the Shallow Silver Zone.
A portrait that has caught the eye of investors and amplified the buzz about SVBL among shareholders, Silver Bull’s clear strategy to develop the abundant mineralization in this region of Mexico has won them fans across the board and even a rookie can see the component vectors here. Silver Bull is all-in at Sierra Mojada and with their Ndjole and Mevang Exploration licenses in Gabon, Central Africa, as a strong second position, the company has a very attractive growth outlook.

Yesterday, Kratos Defense & Security Solutions announced the launch of a hypersonic propulsion research mission that occurred on May 1 of this year. The launch was sent from the U.S. Navy’s Pacific Missile Range Facility in Hawaii, and was conducted by the Rocket Support Services (RSS) business unit under contract to the Naval Surface Warfare Center Port Hueneme Division Detachment at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico.
Kratos is focused on providing mission critical products, services, and solutions for United States National Security, including engineering, manufacturing, and system integration for National Security platforms and programs; most of Kratos’ work is performed on-site at military bases, secure government facilities, or critical infrastructure locations. The company’s clientele mainly consists of United States Federal Government agencies, including the Department of Defense, classified agencies, intelligence agencies and Homeland Security related agencies .Kratos has an employee base of approximately 4,400, many of whom hold an active National Security clearance, including Secret, Top Secret, and higher.
Hypersonic flight, which is travel through Earth’s atmosphere at speeds above Mach 5.5, or more than five times the speed of sound, was the basis of the research payload conducted in the mission. The second in a series of ten planned experiments, the launch boosted the hydrocarbon-fueled research payload to a speed of Mach 6 at an altitude of approximately 70,000 feet, where the scramjet was ignited and accelerated the research payload to a speed of Mach 8 and an altitude of approximately 100,000 feet. NASA reports indicated that this was the first such flight accomplished with a hydrocarbon-fueled scramjet.
This was also the first flight of a Kratos Oriole rocket system boosted by two surplus Terrier rockets, a new configuration. It is anticipated that this vehicle configuration will see additional use for future hypersonic propulsion research missions and as a ballistic missile defense program target vehicle.
David Carter, president of the Kratos’ Defense & Rocket Support Services Division, said, “We are extremely pleased to participate in helping to advance this new propulsion system technology. Kratos is proud to be on the forefront of helping develop this exciting new technology and to add the Terrier-Terrier-Oriole to the family of low-cost ballistic missile defense target vehicles.”

Cloud computing solutions company Imogo Mobile Technologies today said it has launched its new ZaOffice™ suite of applications for business and personal tablet computer users.
ZaOffice provides users with the ability to securely use a range of online convenience applications such as e-mail access, calendar, contacts, files and documents, and outbound phone calls via Click-to-Call and Click-to-Fax.
While the product is applicable for all tablet users, Imogo says ZaOffice was specifically designed for small-sized to medium-sized businesses.
Imogo also noted the rising demand and use for tablet devices, highlighting a study by the Online Publishers Association and Frank Magid Associates that estimates tablet usage market penetration to reach 47% by early next year.
“We believe tablet computers are the future of mobile computing and that ZaOffice delivers a secure, industry-first approach for users in the emerging post-PC era,” Imogo president, founder and CEO Stewart Irvine stated in the press release. “Our ‘tablet-centric’ strategy is focused on providing mobile users with a cost-effective and powerful office-anywhere, -anytime platform to meet the mobile computing needs of both personal and business users. Today’s ZaOffice launch expands on our vision to create the most comprehensive and secure mobile productivity workspace on the market.”
While ZaOffice is currently accessible from any device on any operating system or platform, the company also announced its intent to continue to advance the product.
“Our strategy is to continually work on making the personal and enterprise versions of ZaOffice more feature reach and scalable to individual business customer needs, and we expect to announce the next version of ZaOffice in the near future,” said Terry Severyn, Imogo’s executive vice president.
El Capitan Precious Metals is an exploration stage precious metals company based in Scottsdale, Arizona. At the moment, the company’s primary asset is its wholly owned subsidiary – El Capitan Limited – which owns a 100 percent equity interest in the El Capitan property (thought to contain gold, silver, and platinum) located near Capitan, New Mexico.
The company announced today that Arly Richau has been appointed to its Board of Directors effective immediately, filling a seat that was vacated last month. Mr. Richau was a logical choice for the position since he has been involved in various aspects of legal representation of the El Capitan mining project for the past 18 years, including as general counsel to the company’s board of directors since its merger with Gold and Minerals Company Inc.
Mr. Richau earned his law degree at the University of North Dakota and has been in private practice in Phoenix, Arizona, since 1997. His law career spans three decades and includes positions as Commissioner of Securities for the State of North Dakota and Special Assistant Attorney General for the North Dakota Tax Department.
El Capitan’s current management was pleased to bring Mr. Richau onboard at a pivotal time for the company. The company’s CEO and president, Chuck Mottley, said “I’ve relied on Arly’s wise counsel over the years and he has been a contributing factor in the success of our operation.”
