Lake Shore Gold predicting a good year
Timmins Times
A dramatic $40 drop in the price of gold during Mine Expo week in Timmins no doubt sent a shudder through those in the local gold mining community recently. But gold mining executives, much like prospectors, remain an optimistic group. That was evident when Lake Shore Gold's Mark Utting spoke at the opening of the Mine Expo.

Pascua-Lama deal hailed as 'historic'
Canadian Mining Journal
Toronto's Barrick Gold has come to an initial agreement with 13 of the 18 indigenous Diaguita communities that have vigorously opposed development of the Pascua-Lama gold project on the Chile-Argentina border, according to the lawyer representing the local groups. "This is historical, never seen in Chile's mining history," Lorenzo Soto, the lawyer for the Diaguita, said. "A new phase in the way that large scale mining is done in Chile has begun."

University of Alberta researcher looks back in time with Canadian stones
Edmonton Journal
A University of Alberta researcher has studied rocks from the Northwest Territories to demonstrate that Iceland offers a window into the formation of continents. "There's an open and controversial question of when did continents form through time?'" said Jesse Reimink, a PhD doctoral candidate. "Looking at some of the oldest rocks in the world we can say something about how those rocks form... and how possibly continents were forming early on in Earth's history."

Miniature digital zenith telescope for astronomy and geoscience
Science Codex
As a kind of ground-based optical astrometric instrument, the zenith telescope observes stars near zenith, which substantially reduces the influence of normal atmospheric refraction. Its high-precision observations can be used to calculate astronomical latitude and longitude, which are mainly applied in mobile measurement for deflection of the vertical, long-term measurement for the variations of the vertical, and related researches of astronomical seismology.

Nunavut rock hounds dig for treasure on the tundra
Nunatsiaq Online
Harry Iyerak is an avid hunter. As one of the few active Nunavummiut prospectors in the territory, his game is rocks and minerals — the wealth that lies etched into Nunavut's landscape. He came by it naturally; his father mined nickel in Rankin Inlet in the 1950s. Iyerak took a shine to minerals as a young college graduate and signed up for his first prospecting course in Igloolik in the 1990s, offered through the Qikiqtaaluk Corporation.

Researchers look to Southern Ocean for explanation of LGM
Phys.org
The paleoclimate record for the last ice age — a time 21,000 years ago called the "Last Glacial Maximum" (LGM) — tells of a cold Earth whose northern continents were covered by vast ice sheets. Chemical traces from plankton fossils in deep-sea sediments reveal rearranged ocean water masses, as well as extended sea ice coverage off Antarctica. Air bubbles in ice cores show that carbon dioxide in the atmosphere was far below levels seen before the Industrial Revolution.

Are the clouds parting for juniors?
The Northern Miner
Junior gold explorer Novo Resources checks all the boxes: it's led by a well-known, connected and respected geologist; it has several prospective gold projects (one of which has an inferred resource) in the low-risk jurisdiction of Australia; it has a tight share structure and supportive shareholders (including Newmont Mining), which bought a 35.7 per cent stake in the junior last year); and it has delivered both positive news and an increasing share price over the past three tumultuous years.
