Exploration Targeting

November 5-7, 2014
8:30 am — 5:00 pm
Laurentian University Campus
Sudbury, ON

Speaker: Michael Doggett, Mineral Economics Consultant and Adjunct Professor at Queen's University

This course will address the issues that face exploration groups in a changing global environment for the mineral industry.

GPS discovers the west is so dry, it's rising
NBC News
California's mountains are rising. Like an uncoiled spring, they have moved up by more than half an inch, thanks to the absence of water to weigh them down, according to a new study in the journal Science. Initially, the Global Positioning System (GPS) stations that discovered this fact were meant to study earthquakes. Researchers noticed something strange, however, when they looked at the data.

Atlantic Ocean slows global warming, but scientists believe hiatus will end around 2030
CBC News
The Atlantic Ocean has masked global warming this century by soaking up vast amounts of heat from the atmosphere in a shift likely to reverse from around 2030 and spur fast temperature rises, scientists said. The theory is the latest explanation for a slow-down in the pace of warming at the Earth's surface since about 1998 that has puzzled experts because it conflicts with rising greenhouse gas emissions, especially from emerging economies led by China.
