Presentation: Beyond the Purple Blob — Geophysics & Structural Geology Data Integration
Geophysical and geological subsurface models are distinct in terms of their data distribution and resolution, modelling workflows, and the time of their creation in the mine life cycle. As a result of this, the district — to deposit-scale 2-D and 3-D models developed in support of mineral exploration and mining projects suffer from a poor integration between geology and geophysics.

Ontario First Nations Technical Services Corporation
The Ontario First Nations Technical Services Corporation (OFNTSC) is pleased to host the First Nations Water Crisis Summit & Symposium at the Marriott on the Falls Hotel, Niagara Falls, ON, Oct. 17-19, 2016.
New York filmmaker Bill Morrison says the existence of his new film is nothing less than a miracle.
Dawson City: Frozen Time is a feature-length documentary whose raw material was literally dug up from within the permafrost, dusted off, and assembled — like a museum's wooly mammoth skeleton — to tell a story about lost time. It's been a century in the making, and soon the film will receive its North American premiere at the prestigious New York Film Festival.
The head of Ontario's securities watchdog says its new whistleblower program has already garnered more than 30 tips since its launch in July.
Under the program, the Ontario Securities Commission offers rewards of up to $5 million for tips that lead to successful prosecution of serious securities law violations such as insider trading, accounting tricks and market manipulation.

Probe Metals has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Mattagami and Flying Post First Nations concerning the junior explorer's West Porcupine Project near Foleyet in northeastern Ontario.
The MOU establishes a framework for ongoing consultation with the two First Nations and provides the communities with an opportunity to participate in the project through employment, training and business development.

The Region of Waterloo has undertaken an ambitious $320 million project designed to reduce odours, further improve effluent quality and increase the efficiency and reliability of its Kitchener wastewater treatment plant. The upgrades, originally identified in the region's 2007 wastewater master plan, are being carried out by multiple contractors, some of whom have formed joint ventures to perform the work.
AECOM is the lead consultant for detailed design and construction contract administration. CIMA is lending a hand on design and contract administration on a tertiary treatment building.
The Greater Sudbury Branch of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM Sudbury) will host a diversity and inclusion panel during the Maintenance, Engineering and Reliability/Mine Operators Conference on Tuesday, Oct. 18.
Helen Francis, Vale's director of business effectiveness, will moderate the panel which will feature three panellists: Jennifer Maki, Vale's executive director of base metals; Anna Tudela, Goldcorp's vice-president of diversity and regulatory affairs; and Ron Sarazin, a special projects co-ordinator with Gezhtoojig Employment and Training.

Call it the Tesla effect.
Companies are scrambling to develop sources of lithium, used in rechargeable lithium-ion batteries like those used by electric automaker Tesla, and that's energizing Nova Scotia's mining industry.
Sean Kirby, the executive director of the Mining Association of Nova Scotia, said in a recent interview that several mining companies have come here so far this year in their quest for the silver-coloured metal.
Normally, when a river turns pumpkin orange, it's a clear sign that something has gone terribly, terribly wrong: A chemical spill, a burst tailings pond or some kind of unearthly algae bloom.
But just at the side of the Yukon's Dempster Highway — a gravel road running from the Klondike to Inuvik — it's possible to view a remote waterway that has been opaque with pollution since Gwich'in peoples first entered the area.
"It's rust," said Matt Herod, a geoscientist who has studied Red Creek, one of two "rusty" waterways along the Dempster Highway.
