Resources for Future Generations 2018 (RFG2018) is taking place in June. You will likely recognize the names of many of our colleagues and the sector's thought-leaders getting behind this event, and for good reason. As the premier event aiming to bring us all together to tackle issues around the sustainable use, extraction and management of earth's resources, this discussion couldn't come at a more critical time.
RFG2018 really is for all of us. As a multi-stakeholder event, each individual will be part of a larger puzzle in addressing our age's greatest challenges. It is a ground-breaking, collaborative, innovative, international conference that is "made-in Canada." We sincerely hope to see you in attendance and contributing your knowledge, experience, and perspective on these issues.

With its red-hot rivers of lava and clouds of ash, Hawaii's Kilauea volcano has captured the world's attention. But how dangerous are such eruptions?
Every year about 60 volcanoes erupt. Some take us by surprise but others are regular offenders.
Kilauea is one of the world's most active — its present eruption began 35 years ago, but there has been an increase in activity in recent weeks.
As Noront Resources continues to consider where to put a smelter that will process minerals from the Ring of Fire, a former mines minister says both the provincial and federal governments will play a major role in that decision.
Four cities across northern Ontario, including Sudbury, Timmins, Sault Ste. Marie and Thunder Bay are all vying for the ferrochrome smelter and the hundreds of jobs that will come with it.

A technology first used to give the military the ability to see in total darkness is finding a new application in mining.
Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) has been used since the 1990s for night vision goggles for soldiers, and in cameras for police, emergency services and vehicle navigation for the general public.
For the last few years, Provix has been offering FLIR in their camera systems for heavy equipment surface mining, emergency services, mine rescue and private cars.
Unless serious action is taken, Hamilton Harbour's worst-ever algae bloom could become an annual event, according to a U.S. expert.
John Stark, freshwater conservation director for The Nature Conservancy in Ohio, was one of the experts on a bus that rolled through the bay area Wednesday, before stopping at the city's waterfront for a tour and roundtable discussion about fighting back against the environmental concern.
Timmins is gearing up for its annual mining expo next month.
Affectionately known as The Big Show, it's one of the largest events of its kind in the country.
This year's event promises over 400 vendors, and it will play host to high school students from across the region. They will be given the chance to experience the mining industry up close, as organizers try to inspire an interest in the industry.

De Beers has been actively searching for an opportunity to prolong its stay in Attawapiskat, beyond the lifespan of the Victor diamond mine.
The Victor mine is set to end production in February 2019.
However, Tom Ormsby, head of external and corporate affairs for De Beers Canada, says there are still diamond-containing kimberlite deposits they would be interested in mining, if they can find a way to do it economically.
The new owner of a trailer park near Loretto is looking to spend about $13 million to spruce up the property through the addition of new trailers, a sewage system and more, but flood risks may prevent him from seeing the full project through.
The details of the proposal are outlined in a zoning bylaw amendment application submitted by owner David MacDonald, which was discussed at the recent council meeting but was deferred until next month to allow him have more discussions with the Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority and to also gather other information requested by council.
Eight students are taking part in the Northwest Territories' first training program to assist geoscientists.
It's called the Geoscience Field Assistant Training Program, and it's run through Aurora College at no charge to students.
The course starts with five weeks of in-class education, followed by 160 hours of paid, on-the-job training through mining companies that have partnered with the program.
