A team of scientists recently documented what they're describing as the first case of large-scale river reorganization as a result of human-caused climate change.
They found that in mid-2016, the retreat of a very large glacier in Canada's Yukon territory led to the rerouting of its vast stream of meltwater from one river system to another — cutting down flow to the Yukon's largest lake, and channelling freshwater to the Pacific Ocean south of Alaska, rather than to the Bering Sea.
The annual Mining Health and Safety Conference, which began recently in Sudbury, brings together Ontario's mining industry to share knowledge and innovations regarding safety programs and hazards specific to mining.
"We're pleased to welcome miners from across the province to this year's conference, themed innovations in mining safety," says Candys Ballanger-Michaud, WSN president. "In the last decade, we've seen an increase in innovations aimed at improving safety in Ontario mines and this event is aimed at celebrating these advancements."

Design is about to start on a $106 million addition to a Hamilton, ON, biosolids facility, a project that represents a significant enhancement of the city's wastewater treatment capabilities. This is just one component of $340 million in upgrades at the Woodward Wastewater Treatment Plant. The project is one of several related phases that fall within the City of Hamilton's Clean Water Program that will unfold over the course of multiple years.
North Bay Nugget
Ontario's mining industry is making all the right moves to be more sustainable, more efficient and more profitable. But more can still be done, according to Chris Hodgson, president of the Ontario Mining Association.
Hodgson was guest speaker at a recent Timmins Chamber of Commerce luncheon where he talked about the efforts the mining industry is taking to stay current with energy needs, environmental demands and workplace safety.
He said mining continues to be one the engines that still drives the Ontario economy and contributes to Ontario's economic growth.
Northern Ontario Business
Noront Resources has signed an exploration and project advancement agreement with the Marten Falls First Nation. The Ring of Fire developer said the agreement compensates the northern community for work that has been completed on their traditional land and outlines a one-year process that will be used to negotiate a pre-development agreement for the Eagles Nest nickel-copper-platinum-palladium mine located in the James Bay lowlands.
Chatham Daily News
When it comes to addressing aging water pollution control plants, it's a lot cheaper to connect to an existing facility than build a new one.
The Chatham-Kent Public Utilities Commission voted to approve a nearly $4.2 million tender to build the infrastructure to pump Thamesville's wastewater to the Ridgetown wastewater treatment plant.
Clarke Construction of of Blenheim was the successful bidder for the project that will be funded from the PUC's sanitary sewer collection lifecycle budget.
