Canada is covered by glacial sediments, and these shall be considered not as a hindrance to exploration, but as a tool. Mineralogy of glacial sediments has long been recognized as a powerful method, enabling not only to detect subtle dispersion trains, but also to characterize the mineralized source. Successes of gold grain counting and kimberlitic indicator minerals are countless.

Public comments are being invited on two advanced gold mine developments in Northern Ontario.
Federal environmental assessments are underway for both the Century Gold Project in Timmins and the Hardrock Gold Mine Project near Geraldton. For the Century project, the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency said members of the public have until Oct. 29 to voice their concerns on which aspects of the environment they feel may be affected by the project, and suggest what should be examined during the assessment.

Kari Lentowicz says the all-women mine rescue team she captained at an international competition last month received an "absolutely amazing" reception in a country where women are legally prohibited from working underground.
"There was nothing but support and cheers and standing ovations everywhere we went... I've never felt more welcome," said Lentowicz, who organized what is thought to be the world's first entirely female mine rescue squad earlier this year.
Canadian mining giant, Goldcorp, has launched its third annual #DisruptMining challenge in hopes of bringing new ideas to the surface, and bridging the gap between traditional practices and digital and technological innovation.
"This event is truly becoming a catalyst for the industry," said Luis Canepari, the company's vice president of technology.
"For Goldcorp, #DisruptMining is our opportunity to capture new ideas and take the pulse of the market and see what is out there and what opportunities we have to invest in new and interesting technologies that could change the way we do our business."
We're just getting into fall at this time of year, but winter is on the minds of many as concerns arise over a serious road salt shortage.
There is a significant shortage expected for this season across Ontario and the eastern United States, so companies are doing what they can to get as much of it as possible now.
"We've already begun to stockpile," said Tyler Carr of Carr Excavating.
Carr has approximately 300 to 400 tonnes of salt in supply, but that won't be enough to last through the winter months.

MacLean Engineering has purchased the former MTI test underground testing facility in the Lively neighbourhood. It is located less than a 10-minute drive from the company's sales, service and support centre.
The property includes an approximately 300-metre underground ramp down to a depth of some 40 metres, at an average grade of 15 per cent. The underground facility also includes an excavated cavern where shaft jumbo mucking training had previously been conducted, along with a 4,500-square-meter building on a 3.0-hectare site.
An article written in the Canadian Mining Journal in March 1910 offered suggestions and "pro-tips" for those looking to undertake a season of prospecting in the Porcupine. Their suggested supply of food is 75 pounds per person per month, which contains one third pork, one third flour, and the rest beans, rice, dried apples, oatmeal, tea, sugar, salt, and baking powder.
