Resources for Future Generations
By now we hope you've heard about Resources for Future Generations 2018 (RFG2018), an innovative international conference we have partnered with that will explore important questions about creating a sustainable future for the extraction, use, and management of earth's resources.
RFG2018 is highly focused on gathering and celebrating young leaders tackling these important issues. Every day, in their own way, young leaders are innovating, researching, and inspiring CHANGE that will lead to a sustainable future for the residents of planet earth. These are our EARTH CHAMPIONS. RFG2018 wants to hear THEIR stories!
RFG2018 is running a fun video contest asking young leaders to share how they are helping create change. You could win $500 + a chance to attend #RFG2018 on the house. Details are available here.
We hope to see some of you submit to the video contest!

The Ontario government said it will pass legislation to secure the $85 million earmarked for mercury remediation originally announced in June in a trust. The trust fund pledge was made as part of the Liberal's fall economic statement which was tabled recently in the Ontario legislature.
"This legislation is a historic milestone in my people's long fight to make our poisoned river flow with life again and to gain justice for our people," Simon Fobister, the chief of Grassy Narrows First Nation, said in a press release.
Osisko Mining and Canadian Gold Miner Corp., in which Transition Metals has a 40 per cent stake, recently closed a deal to acquire together a historical gold producer as well as an option for an exploration land package, both in Ontario's gold-rich belt.
The transaction gives the partners the DeSantis property, located in the heart of the Timmins Gold Camp and the possibility to grab a stake on the Catharine asset, near CGM's focus area south of Kirkland Lake, ON, in exchange for 2.5 million common shares of CGM valued at $0.20 per share.

Demolition at the City of Toronto's Humber Wastewater Treatment Plant is a big job, never mind a battle with the "Green Monster" — a massive, multi-tentacled odour-control facility that's stood guard at the plant for decades.
The demolition side of the project is being undertaken by Priestly Demolition as a subcontractor to Alberici Construction, which is rebuilding the plant in phases. Demolition work includes removal of all concrete aeration tank covers and clarifiers, and demolition of a ferrous chloride facility, an activated sludge building and selective equipment demolition in various buildings and access tunnels.

A Western Australian lithium explorer is spinning off a subsidiary to land prospective property in Ontario.
Through its iCobalt spinff company, MetalsTech announced it has signed a binding option agreement to acquire the former Rusty Lake cobalt and silver mine, 15 kilometres south of Gowganda.
The Georgetown Wastewater Treatment Plant will be receiving some reprieve with changes to the incoming septage.
During a recent planning and public works meeting at the Region of Halton, council heard of some changes happening at the Biosolids Management Centre in Oakville, and those changes will positively affect the Georgetown Wastewater Treatment Plant.
Mars clearly had extensive water in the past, and there's still plenty of it locked up as ice in glaciers and the polar ice caps. But the atmosphere is too thin and cold to allow liquid water to exist on the surface, which makes prospects for life on the Red Planet far less likely.
Back in 2011, however, researchers suggested that contrary to our expectations, there might still be some water seeping out onto Mars' surface. Darkened features were identified on a variety of slopes, and they seemed to appear during warmer seasons and vanish as temperatures plunged again.
When describing neutrinos to the public, scientists often share an astounding fact: About 100 trillion of them pass through your body every second. Neutrinos are extremely abundant in the universe, and they only rarely interact with other matter. That's why they're constantly streaming through you — and our entire planet.
But every once and a while, a neutrino hits something.
A new result from the IceCube experiment, published recently in Nature, provides a unique measurement of how often that happens. Future improvements on the result could lead to discoveries about neutrinos, particle physics or even the Earth's inaccessible core.
