Guest Speaker: Dr. Oliver Warr, University of Toronto
Presentation: Using geochemical footprints to explore the ancient hydrosphere of the crystalline basement
Highly saline fracture fluids, rich in reduced gases and noble gases, have been identified at depth in crystalline basement rocks throughout the Precambrian shields of Canada, Fennoscandia and South Africa. Through collaborations with mining companies and underground research laboratories throughout the world, Dr. Warr's team has directly sampled these fluids via boreholes in active mines.

Earth science students hand-picked from more than two dozen-post secondary schools across Canada have been spending some time in Sudbury.
They are part of the 11th Student Industry Mineral Exploration Workshop, a two-week long event organized by the Prospectors Developers Association of Canada (PDAC). The workshop is to help show students what careers are available with a background in geoscience, and include in-class learning and field trips to working mines, Felix Lee, first vice-president of PDAC said.

Researchers at Laurentian University in Sudbury have received provincial funding to continue their work using energy-efficient biological methods and genomics tools to recover metals from mine waste. The $140,000 in funding is an Early Researcher Award from the Ministry of Research, Innovation and Science.
It's part of a larger $10.78 million package that's supporting 77 researchers at 17 research institutions across the province.
Institutions and the private sector will contribute an additional $3.85 million to support research work under the program.
Now that the warmer weather is pretty well here, citizens will soon be heading out to Kingston's waterfront to perhaps swim, paddle or fish.
But seeing raw sewage floating on the water's surface would be enough to dampen anyone's enthusiasm for water use.
The City of Kingston and Utilities Kingston have come up with a way to warn residents in real time when the water may not be so safe and enjoyable because of higher pollution levels.
The Timmins Big Event Canadian Mining Expo is fast-approaching and organizers say it will once again put Timmins in the spotlight for the expo mining exploration and mining supply industries.
A promotional news conference was held recently to let people know that the expo is happening on May 30, 31 and June 1 at the McIntyre Community Building. This includes several related events such as a gala dinner, a jackleg drill competition, a mining job fair, an Aboriginal forum, a prospector's course and an investor's forum.

"Safe. Simple. Green. Silent. Invisible."
It's a tagline Goldcorp has adopted for its developing Borden gold project, located near Chapleau, and it's no coincidence that "safe" is the leading word in the statement.
Located in a pristine area on the shores of Borden Lake, the proposed mine is in the early stages of advanced exploration, but already several decisions have been made about the mine in keeping with Goldcorp's efforts to minimize the impact on the environment and its workers.
Geoscience B.C. has announced "Search Phase III," which will see helicopters fitted with magnetic sensors used in northeastern B.C. and north central B.C. to find information in helping identify hidden mineral potential here in northeast B.C. and north central B.C. Carlos Salas, Acting President & Vice President, Energy, with Geoscience B.C. was on hand at Whole Wheat and Honey recently to officially announce the project alongside Richard Truman, Director, External Relations with Geoscience B.C. Fort St. John Mayor Lori Ackerman was also in attendance.
A University of Alberta geophysics professor and graduate student were among a group of researchers studying earthquakes in New Zealand in 2014 when they made a rare discovery.
While trying to access the Alpine Fault along New Zealand's west coast, the research team discovered very hot water at a relatively shallow depth.
The water, which was hot enough to boil, was found 630 metres below the surface. Water that hot is typically found at depths of at least 3,000 metres.
