Changing the landscape: Geoscientists embrace 3-D printing
EARTH Magazine
The rapid proliferation of 3-D printing technology that began in the early 2000s sent ripples of excitement through the tech world and beyond; some pundits predicted 3-D printing would transform everything about modern life. Until a few years ago, however, the high price of printers put them out of reach for most academic researchers and hobbyists. Now, more affordable printers have broken this barrier, and geoscientists have started testing the waters.

Feds don't commit to $1 billion for Ring of Fire
Northern Ontario Business
The federal government is not ready to make a $1 billion commitment to Ring of Fire infrastructure, said Greg Rickford, Canada's minister of natural resources and FedNor. He made the statement in French, responding to a question from French media in Sudbury. Rickford said the feds have already made investments in the nearby First Nations to increase their educational opportunities. He said future federal funding for the Ring of Fire will need to be tied to specific projects with precise goals.

Kirkland Lake's drills cut new gold zones at South Mine
The Northern Miner
Aggressive drilling has paid off for producer Kirkland Lake Gold at its Macassa and South Mine complex (SMC) in Ontario's Southern Abitibi gold belt. Recently, the company announced that it had expanded mineralization associated with the SMC on both its South and HM claims. Kirkland Lake is hopeful that its ongoing exploration program — funded via a $7.5 million flow-through financing completed in early July — will add viable ounces to its resource and reserve base.

Financial Post
Zinc and nickel prices could move dramatically higher over the next two years as a cyclical recovery takes hold in the base metal sector, says a new report from Scotiabank. Prices for zinc and nickel have been steadily rising this year as global growth continues to rebound, fuelling stronger prices for base metals. Patricia Mohr, commodity market specialist at Scotiabank, said zinc and nickel are in a good position because they are either in or nearing supply deficit positions.

California would adopt groundwater regulations for first time under bills headed to governor
Bridge River Lillooet News
The worst drought in a generation has pushed California law-makers to overhaul the state's longstanding "pump-as-you-please" groundwater policy under a package of bills lawmakers sent recently to Gov. Jerry Brown. The state would begin regulating its groundwater supply for the first time under the legislative package by Assemblyman Roger Dickinson, D-Sacramento, and Sen. Fran Pavley, D-Agoura Hills. It would require some local governments to develop groundwater-management plans and allows the state to intervene if necessary.

Tectonic plates are moving faster as Earth ages
Nature World News
It seems that all this time, the Earth's tectonic plates have just been warming up, and now they've set the treadmill to a higher setting. That is, according to a new study, which claims that Earth's tectonic plates are moving faster now than at any other point in the last two billion years. The study was recently published in the journal Precambrian Research, and shows that the average speed at which continental tectonics change latitude has doubled after a couple billion years.

Seismic hazards reassessed in the Andes
Phys.org
Although being able to predict the date on which the next big earthquake will occur is still some way off becoming a reality, it is now possible to identify the areas where they will occur. IRD researchers and their French, Ecuadorian and Peruvian partners have just measured the current deformation in the northern part of the Andes for the first time using GPS, where the tectonics of the Pacific and South American plates govern the high seismic activity in the region.
