Claim Post Resources Inc. Acquires 51% of Frac Sand Project in Southern Manitoba (Canada) and Options a Permitted Property Suitable for Loading Unit Trains of Frac Sand

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 01/25/13 -- Claim Post Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CPS) (the "Company") announces that it has signed an amendment to its agreement with Char-Crete Ltd. to acquire nine contiguous silica sand quarry leases, encompassing approximately 428 hectares (1,050 acres) (see press release dated August 27, 2013). The property is located 3km from a paved highway near Seymourville, 200km North-East of Winnipeg, Manitoba (Canada) (the "Seymourville Property"). Under the amended agreement, Claim Post paid $400,000 to Char-Crete and acquired a 51% undivided interest in the Seymourville Property. Claim Post can acquire the remaining 49% interest by payment of an additional $300,000 on or before March 31, 2013. In addition, Char Crete has agreed to grant Claim Post an option to purchase a fully permitted industrial property in Winnipeg for use as a railroad loading and storage area for a payment of $400,000 on or before February 17, 2013. If Claim Post chooses to exercise the option the purchase price of the property will be $2,700,000.

The Seymourville Silica Sand deposit was discovered in 1977 and was drilled by Manitoba government geologists in 1981 and again in 1989. The deposit is the Lake Winnipeg Formation on-shore extension of the Historical Black Island silica deposit. Black Island silica was mined from 1928 to 2003 when it was incorporated into a park. Black Island sand was used as feed stock to manufacture glass, fiber glass, foundry sand and early frac sand by the oil industry.

The President of Claim Post Resources, Charles Gryba, stated: "We are very pleased to have acquired a 51% interest in the nine quarry leases from Char-Crete Ltd; we look forward to acquiring the balance of the property in the coming months. Our first priority will be to start a drilling program and API - ISO testwork towards completing a NI 43-101 report. The next step would be to commission an independent Preliminary Economic Assessment of the deposit to confirm the economics of taking the Seymourville Silica Sand Deposit to commercial production. A major step forward in de risking the project was acquiring an option on a permitted property suitable for setting up a frac sand terminal in Winnipeg with access to rail."

High silica sand deposits are very rare in Western Canada because the glaciers either destroyed the deposits or mixed in other minerals unsuitable for frac sand. Horizontal drilling and fracking in the US and Western Canada has been very successful. The Seymourville deposit has 20 - 40 mesh and 40 - 70 mesh sand used for the fracking in the Bakkens in Southern Manitoba and Saskatchewan and also 40 - 70 mesh and 100 mesh sizes suitable for natural gas fracking in the world class Montney, Horn River and Laird River basins along the Alberta - British Columbia borders.

Access to rail transportation and being closer to the market are key advantages required for any successful industrial mineral project. The option to purchase an industrial site in Winnipeg that has access to both the CN and CP rail systems is a major advantage. In 2012, the US produced 31 million tons of frac sand and CN hauled 70,000 rail road cars of frac sand from Wisconsin through Winnipeg to Western Canada. Claim Post's frac sand is about 1,000 km closer to the Canadian market.

Claim Post Resources intends to maintain its exploration properties in Timmins, Ontario which are highly prospective for both gold and base metals. The Company continues to seek joint venture partners and strategic arrangements with other companies in the industry to advance the exploration of the large Timmins land holdings.

Claim Post Resources Inc. is a Canadian based mineral exploration company and a reporting issuer in Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia. The Company currently holds a 100% interest in the mineral rights to about 1145 staked claim units and 63 patented claims (approx. 200 km sq. or 72 sq. miles), wholly within the city limits of Timmins, Ontario. The Company continues to stake ground as it becomes available and drop lower priority claims from time to time. There are 45,788,831 common shares of the Company issued and outstanding.

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage.

An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense.

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
With microservices, SOA and distributed architectures becoming more popular, it is becoming increasingly harder to keep track of where time is spent in a distributed application when trying to diagnose performance problems. Distributed tracing systems attempt to address this problem by following application requests across service boundaries, persisting metadata along the way that provide context for fine-grained performance monitoring.

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
