Boldly building a Silicon Valley in Canada... for mining
Techvibes
Toronto, Kitchener-Waterloo, Montreal, and Vancouver are all recognized tech clusters in Canada. But the story around a new hub in Sudbury, ONcan be traced back to a round of golf between Kirk Petroski, the CEO of Symboticware, and Dick DeStefano, the Executive Director of SAMSSA (Sudbury Area Mining Supply and Service Association), where Petroski urged DeStefano to speak to MaRS about mining innovation.

Decades of work by IamGold rewarded with Westwood gold mine
Canadian Mining Journal
There's nothing more satisfying than advancing from the "development" to the "production" stage of a project and that's exactly what IamGold of Toronto experienced in July 2014 now that its Westwood Mine in Quebec has reached commercial production. Located in the Abitibi region of the province approximately 420km northwest of Montreal and accessible year-round via paved roads, the mine is situated on a property that covers 1,925 hectares and contains 120 titles, one mining lease, one surface lease and three tailings leases.

Black Friday for precious metals
Mining Feeds
Black Friday has a few meanings. It has the retail connotation and interestingly also marks a Friday in September 1869 when the Gold price plummeted after two speculators attempted to corner the market. Today wasn't that bad for precious metals but it was a Black Friday given the severe sell-off and the particular day and time of year.

Geology Times
The puzzle pieces of tectonic plates that make up the outer layer of the earth are not rigid and don't fit together as nicely as we were taught in high school. A study published in the journal Geology quantifies deformation of the Pacific plate and challenges the central approximation of the plate tectonic paradigm that plates are rigid.

Sources: Brazil's Vale mulls Toronto and London listings for some base metals units
Financial Post
Brazil's Vale SA is considering listing part of its global base metals business in Toronto and London, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the plan, as the miner looks to fund capital projects amid a collapse in iron ore prices. The sources, who asked not to be named because they have not been authorized to discuss the matter publicly, said Vale, the world's top iron ore producer, is likely to retain a majority interest in the new entity if it proceeds with the plan.

Paper details technique to date groundwater
Phys.org
Neil Sturchio, chair of the Department of Geological Sciences at University of Delaware, is co-author of a Nature Geoscience paper detailing a pioneering new technique to date groundwater. Knowing the age of the groundwater provides important clues about the sustainability of water resources, information that is particularly important in dry or arid climates. The technique involves measuring Krypton-81, a rare isotope produced by cosmic rays in the Earth's atmosphere.

Scientists may be cracking mystery of big 1872 earthquake
The Seattle Times
Geologists may be close to cracking one of the biggest seismological mysteries in the Pacific Northwest — the origin of a powerful quake that rattled seven states and provinces when Ulysses S. Grant was president and the transcontinental railroad hadn't yet reached Washington. Preliminary evidence points to a newly discovered fault near the town of Entiat in Chelan County. AEG member Jim Miller of the Washington Section offers his insight.
