This 10-day course focuses on the geology, alteration, and origin of hydrothermal ore deposits. Deposit types include epithermal and mesothermal precious metal, porphyry Cu-Mo-Au, IOCG, sediment- and volcanic hosted base-metal deposits, and U and REE deposits. Emphasis is placed on the processes responsible for their formation, the recognition of alteration halos, and features pertinent to exploration.

Earthquake hazard assessment often overlooks intra-slab earthquakes. EarthScope Transportable Array data for the 2016 Iniskin and Nov. 30, 2018 Anchorage earthquakes in Alaska offer new insight into potential causes of heavy shaking from these intra-slab events.
The Sault Star
A new mining alliance, featuring membership from Northern Ontario post-seconary institutions, government and the private sector, recently met at Sault College.

One Grade 11 student's summer research at the University of Alberta has the possibility to change how industry leaders extract diamonds from rocks.
As part of a six-week internship called the Wisest Summer Research Program, students get the chance to spend their summer doing research at the university.
Hamdi Ali spent this summer at the university's Earth and Atmospheric Sciences department as part of the internship program. She had the chance to work with various researchers in the geology department for six weeks.
Cornwall Seaway News
During the recent presentation of the Water and Waste Water budget, Council heard that there was a $38 million backlog in watermain maintenance in the City of Cornwall.
There is roughly 68 kilometres of watermain pipe in Cornwall that needs to be replaced or relined. This is out of the total 280 kilometres of watermains that compose Cornwall's water and waste water system.
Cornwall's General Manager for Infrastructure and Municipal Works John St. Marseille explained that the backlog was a result of "Historical underspending" in previous years.
Canadian Mining Journal
Toronto-based McEwen Mining has announced plans to spend $20 million for exploration on its properties near Timmins. The company will offer approximately 6.0 million flow-through shares priced at $3.02 each.
The most promising exploration program in 2018 was that at the former Stock mine that produced 137,000 oz. of gold from an underground operation between 1989 and 2005.
The province's new climate plan may force hundreds of municipalities across Ontario to publicly report when any raw sewage is dumped directly into lakes and rivers, and provide the gritty details.
The Ontario government's program, called Preserving and Protecting our Environment for Generations: A Made-In-Ontario Environment Plan, calls for increased monitoring and public reporting of sewage overflows.
