|Building strong connections through APGO Networking Events
APGO's networking events in Sudbury and Toronto were both well-attended by members. While provision of networking events is not the core mandate of APGO as a regulator, such events prove to be a value-added benefit for members. APGO gratefully acknowledges Dr. Paul Sobron of Seti Institute and Dr. Jennifer McKelvie of Nuclear Waste Management Organization as guest speakers of Sudbury and Toronto events respectively. Big thanks also go to APGO Councillors Tafa Gomwe (Sudbury) and Francoise Campbell (Toronto) for their role in hosting the networking events. APGO also thanks the Sudbury Geological Discussion Group for partnering with us.
Special acknowledgement for the following who helped Tafa Gomwe in organizing the event in Sudbury:
• Ruth and Ed Debicki for their help in organising the event with the Sudbury Geological Discussion Group (SGDG).
• Robert Palkovits for hosting Dr. Sobron during the Garson Mine underground tour.
• Shirley Peloquin and Nicholas Szumylo of the MNDM's Resident Geologist office in Sudbury for organizing a field visit of the Sudbury Basin.
• Mostafa Naghizadeh, with Laurentian Univeristy, for arranging the student presentation opportunity for Dr. Sobron.

The Trailblazer Award recognizes and celebrates these contributions.
Women in Mining Canada
Rick Hutson was an amazing contributor and mentor to the next generation of young men and women and was also a highly valued member of the mining community. Rick had boundless energy where students were concerned and he worked with many universities and student groups speaking, listening and sharing his enthusiasm for mining.
Rick Hutson was also a board member of Women in Mining Canada and thus the Award for Mentorship was established in his name.
By Goodman School of Mines in partnership with Procept Associates
This five-day course is an intense review of exam material.

Thank you Bill Pearson, P.Geo. for submitting this article. Researchers have developed a new approach to estimate the true size of very large earthquakes.
At present, scientists use seismic waves from a rupture to work out the scale of the event.
But a new analysis of the Tohoku earthquake in Japan in 2011 shows that changes in gravity can give more rapid information.
University of Calgary
University of Calgary professor David Eaton has earned an international reputation for his scientific leadership in understanding emerging industry practices, like hydraulic fracturing. His breakthrough findings are guiding more sustainable practices and his expertise will shape a new federally funded training program that he'll lead, offering students exceptional learning opportunities.

Melissa Pecman finished university feeling the way many graduates do: Stressed about her student debt.
She landed a job as a geologist with Orix Geoscience in Sudbury and started making payments on $17,000 in government loans, Ms. Pecman says. Although she was interested in pursuing an applied master's in geology, Ms. Pecman, 27, was reluctant to incur any more debt.
So when senior management at her geological mapping firm approached her offering to pay for her master's program, she jumped at the chance and started the two-year, part-time MA program at Laurentian University this year while working at Orix.

Mining Day on the Hill was an opportunity for Greater Sudbury Mayor Brian Bigger to rub elbows with the lead player in the Ring of Fire.
Bigger was part of a delegation from Sudbury who headed to Ottawa for the Mining Association of Canada's (MAC) industry-government networking event on Nov. 21.
The annual get-together attracts mining executives, companies and federal bureaucrats to discuss policy and showcase technology.
Canadian precious metals producer McEwen Mining is rushing to obtain funds for its planned exploration program at its newly acquired properties near Timmins, ON.
The company recently announced a financing plan consisting of a $10 million bought deal private placement offering of four million flow-through common shares.
McEwen said the funds raised would be used exclusively for a 2018 exploration program, primarily at the Black Fox property, which it bought in August for $35 million from Primero Mining Corp.
Investors have renewed their interest in an historic Canadian cobalt play amid a recent boom brought on by the adoption of electric vehicles.
Toronto-based First Cobalt Corp. has seen its stock price double in value since recently announcing that it had received shareholder backing for a three-way merger with fellow juniors Cobaltech Mining Inc. and Cobalt One Ltd. The deal includes past-producing mines near Cobalt, ON, a town named after the metal and located approximately 500 kilometres north of Toronto.
Canadian Mining Journal
The Canadian mining sector has submitted a full application for a clean resources Supercluster as part of the federal Innovation Superclusters Initiative. Prepared by CEMI, CIMRE, CMIC, COREM, IMII and MSTA, the application seeks to establish the CLEER (clean, low-energy, effective, engaged and remediated) supercluster.
Explorers have just discovered a new underground passage, complete with stalactites and a lake, all buried beneath the city of Montreal — and they don't know where it ends yet.
Until a couple of months ago, no one had ever set foot inside.
CBC crews were among the first people who had the chance to explore the cathedral-like chamber, which was formed more than 15,000 years ago during the ice age.
