University of Ottawa
Oct 21-28, 2017
The University of Ottawa Joint Modular Courses in Hydrothermal Ore Deposits are intensive 8-day short courses on the geology and genesis of ore deposits. This year's course will focus on hydrothermal ore deposits at a range of crustal levels — from deep orogenic systems to the surficial environment.

For those living under the Carthaginian Empire, the defeat of general Hannibal would have been unmistakable.
But its effect on the Roman Empire can be detected even today, historians have said, as they analyse the composition of ancient coins.
A study of coins has illustrated that the defeat of Hannibal led to a flood of wealth across the Roman Empire from the silver mines of Spain, giving a "tangible record" of the transition of Rome from a regional power to an Empire.

A proposal for a $1.25 billion open-pit gold mine on Geraldton's doorstep has been submitted for an environmental review with the support of four nearby First Nation communities that could benefit from the project economically.
"We have given (the proponent) our blessing," Aroland First Nation Chief Dorothy Towedo said in an earlier interview.
Greenstone Gold Mines' plans for the proposed mine are under review by the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency and Ontario's Ministry of Environment.
Chatham Daily News
Highgate will soon have water piped in from Ridgetown that will provide a permanent solution to quality concerns and operational constraints with the existing well system.
The Chatham-Kent Public Utilities Commission recently provided an update regarding the $4.2 million project that is underway to upgrade municipal water services to this East Kent community.
The project involves constructing and installing a transmission watermain spanning nine kilometres from Ridgetown to Highgate and a new underground water storage reservoir.
A long weekend at a provincial park seems the unlikely place to learn about the history of mining and prospecting in Timmins.
But that was in fact the focus of a Natural Heritage Education program at Kettle Lakes Provincial Park recently.
About 20 campers — some from Timmins, others visiting from out of town — took in the program which touched on topics like local rock formations and the traditional method of staking claims.
The program included a mix of games and activities to keep things entertaining. About half the attendees were children.
Northern Ontario Business
Marten Falls First Nation, one of the communities on the path to the Ring of Fire, staged an inaugural Mining Symposium in Thunder Bay recently.
A community news release said it was an opportunity for its members to meet the companies conducting exploration in the undeveloped and remote chromite and nickel belt. Marten Falls is one of the communities in the Matawa First Nations tribal council that is asserting its traditional territorial over the exploration camp.
Canadian precious metals producer McEwen Mining said recently it's buying the Black Fox mining complex in northern Ontario from Primero Mining.
The $35 million deal is McEwen Mining's second acquisition in the famous Timmins gold camp this year and CEO Rob McEwen described the transaction as "just the beginning of a new chapter of growth" for the Toronto-based company.
Canadian Mining Journal
A research project funded by Geoscience B.C. has developed new techniques using snow, soil and trees to identify non-outcropping mineral deposits. The agency has also created new techniques for use in the laboratory. Called An assessment of the use of halogens and volatile compounds in vegetation, soil and snow in the exploration for concealed deposits: Case histories from Lara and Mount Washington, Vancouver Island, the project centered on two well-studied field sites.
The number of major floods in natural rivers across Europe and North America has not increased overall during the past 80 years, rather the occurrence of major flooding in these two continents often varies with North Atlantic Ocean temperature patterns. The study, titled "Climate-driven variability in the occurrence of major floods across North America and Europe" and published in the September issue of the Journal of Hydrology, found that the occurrence of major flooding in North America and Europe often varied due to Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation.
