As such, the geologists are often the first to face bribery and corruption risk and must learn to manage this risk. Learn about the costs and consequences of corruption and what steps businesses in general and geologists in particular must take to mitigate their risk and exposure from bribery and corruption.

The Mining Industry Human Resources Council has launched its Mining Professional Immigrant Network (M-PIN). This is a free network that will help Ontario mine employers connect in person and online with internationally trained professionals in search of employment in the province.
Northern Ontario Business
Long-abandoned mining camps in Northern Ontario are proving to be far from dead.
Two historic mining camps — the Thunder Bay silver district and an emerging gold camp on the outskirts of the town of Wawa — are proving to contain plenty of resources decades after they were believed to be mined out, or contained nothing significant.
Water Canada Magazine has recently named Peterborough as the best place in Ontario and the second best place in Canada to launch a water technology startup.
This ranking doesn't surprise Peterborough native John Gillis, Cleantech Innovation Specialist at the Innovation Cluster in downtown Peterborough.
"Peterborough and the Kawarthas is a great place to develop these kinds of startups," says Gillis. "We have resources, space, and expertise in the community, as well as lakes and water systems that make Peterborough an ideal location for cleantech companies."

Harte Gold Corp. says it has received all necessary operating permits from the Ontario government to start commercial production at its Sugar Zone mine, 40 kilometres northeast of White River.
In a news release, the company said it is starting full-scale operations, and expects the mine to operate for at least 12 years.
About a 20-minute drive north of the industrial town of Timmins, ON, the ground gives way to a gaping pit stretching more than 100 meters across. This pit is the most recognizable feature of Kidd Creek Mine, the deepest copper and zinc mine in the world. Below the Earth's surface, a maze of underground tunnels and shafts pierces three kilometers of ancient volcanic rock. Were it not for a huge ventilation system keeping the passages cool, the air temperature at this depth would be 34°C (93°F).
Officials in northern Arkansas are investigating the cause of a mysterious hole in the ground that spouted flames into the air for more than 40 minutes.
Investigators have ruled out methane as the source of the fire that erupted from the hole last month in Midway, a community near the Arkansas-Missouri border. Farfetched suspicions, such as meteorites, have also been proven unfounded, Baxter County Judge Mickey Pendergrass told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
