The Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) just issued a news release seeking new members for the Mining Technical Advisory and Monitoring Committee (MTAMC). The MTAMC serves as a forum for communication between the CSA and the mining industry, and advises the CSA on a variety of industry and professional developments related to securities regulatory issues.

This modular course is open to graduate students at Ontario universities and to industry professionals.
The International Women in Resources Mentoring Programme (IWRMP) was formed by an international steering committee as a natural sequel to the National Action Plan that was launched by Women in Mining Canada (WIMC), with the aim to empower and promote the career prospects of women working in the international resources industry by developing productive mentoring partnerships to assist in creating a more diverse and gender progressive industry. IWRMP is launching the first international mentoring programme at the PDAC in 2018.

With the Sudbury basin being a hub for mining technology, training people underground with real equipment would seem like a given.
That isn't always the case, but there is one place in the Sudbury basin with a unique distinction of being a training and testing mine.
NORCAT's Underground Centre gives entrepreneurs and tech companies a laboratory to test their equipment, while also giving students a place to do real-world training and test theories.

As efforts continue to obtain unanimous indigenous consent for two major access roads into Northern Ontario's Ring of Fire mining belt, at least one First Nation is sounding reassured that its interests are being met.
Aroland First Nation Chief Dorothy Towedo recently said the province has agreed to work with the band and fulfil its goal of becoming the Ring of Fire's "gateway."
"Ontario is now clear," Towedo said in a news release. "It is committed to working with Aroland and other First Nations for planning potential mining and related infrastructure developments."
In a motion at its recent meeting, South Huron council moved forward with cost recovery plans for the Grand Bend Sewage Treatment Facility and Pumping Station 2 projects.
The municipality will begin with 80 per cent of the cost recovery from so-called "benefitting property owners" of the project, while the remaining 20 per cent of the cost recovery will be deferred to future development and recovered from all South Huron sewer system users through user fees.

One of the world's biggest mining investors is going to be thinking a lot more about electric vehicles over the next decade.
"The biggest theme over the next 10 or 15 years of investing is going to be getting right the transition away from the combustion vehicle towards EVs," Evy Hambro, who manages BlackRock's World Mining Fund, said in a Bloomberg TV interview.
Battery-powered cars and gasoline hybrids are poised to grow so fast, that by 2040 they'll make up more than half of all vehicles sold globally, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance.
Council probably should been prepared.
That's what Coun. Mike Kelch said at city hall recently about the now $12.8 million bill for Centennial Park soil remediation and park revitalization, including separate but related water and wastewater infrastructure work.
"Typically when you are doing a remediation of a piece of property that has been involved in an industrial use, it's very common to put about 25-35 per cent of your project cost as a contingency," said Kelch, reminding his peers about his four decades experience working in the Chemical Valley.
A sedimentary geologist is cautioning people from brushing off Falmouth's sinkhole as a one-time event.
Dr. Elisabeth Kosters, a sedimentary geologist and former professor at Dalhousie and Acadia universities, said she doesn't think the sinkhole that occurred in Falmouth recently should be dismissed as a one-off. "I think this should serve as a cautionary event; we shouldn't just lightly say 'oh it's a one-off, it won't happen again,'" Kosters said.
Vancouver-based MGX Minerals says it is possible to get lithium from oil-extraction wastewater in just a few days and not the 18 months that it takes to recover the mineral through solar evaporation.
In an interview with Green Tech Media, the company's CEO, Jared Lazerson, said that the ever growing demand for lithium would benefit from faster turnover times.
