Mining network issues pan-Canadian call for proposals
Northern Ontario Business
The Ultra-Deep Mining Network (UDMN) has set out a national call for proposals to find additional partners. An initiative of the Centre for Excellence in Mining Innovation (CEMI), the Sudbury-based network is conducting research and development for ultra-deep mining applications — mining beyond 2.5 kilometres — that can eventually be commercialized for use in the Canadian and global markets.

OMA study: New mines a boost to Ontario economy
The Northern Miner
A new study by the University of Toronto's Rotman School of Management commissioned by the Ontario Mining Association measures the impact on gross domestic product, employment and government revenue from open pit and underground mining scenarios in a relatively remote part of northern Ontario. Authors Peter Dungan and Steve Murphy of the Policy and Economic Analysis Program at the Rotman School assess the economic contribution to the province of a new gold mine and consider two scenarios in their research.

Research network reaches out for deep mining projects
Northern Life
Researchers and mining supply and services companies will have until November 10 to apply for funding through the Ultra-Deep Mining Network to bring any ideas that would improve ultra-deep mining productivity or safety to reality. The Centre for Excellence in Mining Innovation (CEMI) launched the Ultra-Deep Mining Network to find practical advances that would make ultra-deep mining — deeper than 2.5 kilometres or roughly 8,000 feet — more economically viable.

Upgrade to plug sewage spills in Porcupine
Timmins Press
Work is now underway on a year-long project in the East End of Timmins to contain runoff from storm sewers and sanitary sewers from going into Porcupine Lake.

The project is located in the snow-dump field, adjacent to Highway 101, just east of the Whitney Arena on the north shore of Porcupine Lake. Ward 4 Coun. Pat Bamford said the project is being welcomed by those living near the lake.

Vale could dismantle Sudbury's Superstack
Northern Ontario Business
Some call it an eyesore, while many others see it as one of Sudbury's most easily identifiable and iconic landmarks. By the end of the year, Vale is expected to determine the future of the Superstack, and decide whether or not it should be dismantled. "The reality is that there's very little SO2 (sulphur dioxide) coming up the stack and it doesn't make a lot of sense for use to use the stack further," said Kelly Strong, Vale's vice-president of Ontario and U.K. operations.

Wastewater manager: Innisfil sewage spill won't harm lake
Simcoe.com
An emergency-alert system failed at the town's wastewater plant recently, causing sewage to overflow into a nearby containment ditch. But town staff contained the spill quickly enough to avoid any serious impact to Lake Simcoe, wastewater superintendent Chuck Fiddy said. "Residents do not need to be concerned. There should not be any impact on Lake Simcoe," Fiddy said. "Crews removed all standing liquid from the ditch involved."

Researchers in the University of Maryland's geology department have started a LaunchUMD campaign to raise funds for a planned 3-D printing lab for their department.

It hasn't worked out that way. The project's key player has given up, leaving the future of the deposit in question and hurting prospects that it will ever reach the lofty expectations of politicians.

Uranium exploration beyond the Athabasca Basin
Uranium Investing News
It's no secret that Canada's Athabasca Basin is a hot spot for uranium mining and exploration. From major producers like Cameco operating mines in the region, to exploration companies like Fission Uranium discovering high grade mineralization, northern Saskatchewan has made itself comfortable as a uranium hot spot. But since Fission's Patterson Lake South discovery, uranium investor focus — and not to forget company focus — has been mostly centered on the southwestern edge of the basin.

Canadians tied with Mexican issuers for the worst fixed income returns in October in a global index of metals, miners and steel companies, gaining 0.4 per cent compared with an average one per cent, according to Merrill Lynch data.

Mining the Antarctic a big no-no
Mining.com
Mining in the Antarctic is not likely to happen any time soon, as scientists believe the treaty that bans exploration and exploitation of the region's resources may be revised in the next century. Speaking at a polar law symposium, former head of the Australian Antarctic Division, Tony Press, said the Antarctic Treaty — which vetoes mining in the region and it's backed by the 50 countries that operate bases there — is "indefinite," ABC reports.
