Speed mentoring session at the AGM
Milan Situm, P.Geo.
One of the sponsored activities during the past AGM in June was a speed mentoring session. Firstly I would like to thank the PDAC for sponsoring this session by reserving the room for the morning. We had 28 students show up and they were greeted by myself and five veteran members. We provided breakfast and lunch to all. I would like to thank Della Berwanger, Bruce Hietkamp, Geoffrey Chinn, Robert Tossel and Wally Rayner for their participation.

First quantitative insights into electron transfer from minerals to microbes
Nano Werk
Scientists have gained the first quantitative insights into electron transfer from minerals to microbes by studying that transfer in a nature-inspired, protein and iron-based nanoparticle system. Iron plays a crucial role in environmental biogeochemistry. It readily exchanges electrons with microbes, transforming from more soluble Fe(II) to less soluble Fe(III). By studying that exchange, researchers better understand iron cycling in the environment and how iron cycling, carbon cycling, and microbial activities are connected.

Are gold equities on the cusp of an upswing?
Mining.com
It is like a carrot on a stick for small-cap mining investors: the promise that we have finally hit bottom and prices will rise again for gold and mining stocks.

How quakes trigger methane stores
IOL SciTech
Earthquakes can rip open sub-sea pockets of methane, a highly potent greenhouse gas, according to a study by German and Swiss scientists. Quake-caused methane should be added to the list of heat-trapping carbon emissions that affect the world's climate system, although the scale of this contribution remains unclear, they said.
