Humans will have to breath, drink and eat while living on the Moon. They will need energy to perform tasks using their robotic companions and materials to build structures. For a sustainable approach to space exploration these resources cannot be carried from Earth but have to be found on the Moon itself. Angel Abbud Madrid is the Director of the Center for Space Resources at the Colorado School of Mines (CSM), where he leads a multidisciplinary research programme on the human and robotic exploration of space and the utilisation of its resources. He is also the Director of the CSM Space Resources Program, the first academic programme in the world focused on educating scientists, engineers, economists, entrepreneurs and policymakers in the developing field of space resources. Space Bites hosts the best talks on space exploration from the most inspiring and knowledgeable speakers from the field. Held at the technical heart of the European Space Agency in the Netherlands, the lectures are now also available on YouTube.

The goal of an exploration company is to take ownership of each project and not focus on selling assets to major miners, said Matthew Lennox-King, president and CEO of Contact Gold. “The only way you can attract that attention [from the majors] is to continue to advance the project as if you’re going to own it. That means doing the right science, metallurgy, resource estimation, whatever that might be. If you build it to sell it, I don’t think you’ll end up with the right answer at the end of the day,” Lennox-King told Kitco News on the sidelines of the Swiss Mining Institute Conference in Zurich. _________________________________________________________________ Kitco News is the world’s #1 source of metals market information.

October 30, 2014 — In a special InvestorIntel interview, Tracy Weslosky, Editor-in-Chief and Publisher for InvestorIntel interviews Wayne Reid, P.Geo., CEO & Director of GTA Mining and Resources Inc. (TSXV: GTA) about what GTA does best – “we take a grassroots property and work to get a resource on it.” Tracy Weslosky: Today I have the pleasure of interviewing Wayne Reid. He's the CEO for GTA Resources and Mining. A very tight model, there's only what, 30 million shares outstanding? Wayne Reid: 30 million shares and 33% of those are held by either by the insiders, with 7 million shares -- and Balmoral Resources, whose property we had picked up, have about 3.1 million shares. We know where all those are. Plus, there are some major investors in there so there is a very tight control on shares. Tracy Weslosky: This is an excellent point. I don't usually start out conversations this way, but InvestorIntel audience, right now we have a lot of vultures out there looking for great bargains, undervalued stocks and here we have a stock, a resource play, with money in the bank and you have significant management on your team. You just had a news release about Ivanhoe property. Can you talk to us about this? Wayne Reid: That's more of a grassroots property that we optioned only about 4 or 5 months ago. Our main property is much more advanced and this is slower going ahead. Ivanhoe is a busy boot and hammer type prospect and it’s low-cost, and you can get really a big bang for your buck in a perfect area. It's between Timmins and Probe Mines', Borden Lake property. That same structure that connects those two, we're right in the middle of it. Lots of good looking rocks. Lots of historic gold mineralization. We just started doing a prospect and sampling survey on Ivanhoe. That should hopefully get us some good news going forward. It's really what we do best is take a grassroots property and advance it to get a resource on it. Tracy Weslosky: Can you give us an overview on GTA Resources and Mining? You have 3 primary properties -- can you give us a nice overview? Wayne Reid: Three properties, but really it's a pipeline of properties. Our main property is the Northshore Property. We just got a 43-101 compliant resource on it so it's got about 400,000 ounces of indicated and over 800,000 of inferred at about 1 gram. We've got a bulk tonnage possibility there. Plus, we've got a high-grade zone within that, that we're putting into a surface pit model on to see if we can actually start mining here early. We've really got this advanced property. We're looking at the scenarios of mining, scoping out costs of what it would cost to mine. The first shovel full here would be ore.. There shouldn't be hardly any stripping. We think it's a great environment for the locals. It will take some time because environmental work has to be done, and some metallurgy. This is one end of the pipeline, and we've got the grassroots at the other end of the pipe. Those two grassroots properties at the other end of the pipe that's going to be feeding, hopefully, up to another Northshore. That's really where it comes from. The other grassroots property is in northern Ontario up towards Hearst. It's more of a graphite play next to Zenyatta's recent Albany discovery. [Editor’s note: GTA owns 51% of Northshore.] Tracy Weslosky: Okay, it was quite a coup for them to bring you on approximately 2 years ago because you're a very senior player in the exploration professionals here in the resource sector. I thought you were primarily focused on gold. I was going to ask you about which resource you're looking for. You've got everything from graphite to gold. Can you tell me what your sweet spots are? Are you just looking for the best possible deals you can get your hands on? Wayne Reid: Really we're a gold company, we just happened to find ourselves proximal to the best graphite discovery in Canada… Disclaimer: GTA Mining and Resources Inc. is an advertorial member of InvestorIntel and the text is not a transcript.

John Kutsch of Thorium Energy Alliance and Jim Kennedy of ThREE Consulting review the hazards maintaining U.S. current thorium policy. Heavy Rare Earth Element mining is impeded. Energy sector innovation is stifled. Thorium is less dangerous, less radioactive, and less easily metabolized than many elements we are exposed to on a daily basis. Current regulation assists China's capture of high-tech manufacturing sector. Current regulation protects incumbent U.S. [light] rare earth producers who DISPOSE of thorium and valuable heavy rare earths in tailing ponds. Current regulation does NOT facilitate growth of U.S. economy. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle recognize reform is needed. No one is willing to introduce legislation to address the thorium problem. China continues to capture high-tech manufacturing jobs. U.S. private corporations are unable to pursue thorium an an energy resource. THE THORIUM PROBLEM was delivered at SME - Society for Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration on Feb 20th 2012 [2012-02-20] in Seattle.

LEARN MORE AT: https://www.cypressdevelopmentcorp.com Successful resource investing is all about identifying prospective companies with an excellent project while their share prices are low enough to have the opportunity for a two, five, 10-times gain or more when things go right. Junior mining has so many small-cap companies chasing discoveries that investors need to be really smart about which companies they choose to buy into. The space is rife with charlatans and pump and dumpers so the maxim is always “buyer beware”. Having said that, there are times in the market, or it’s more accurate to say, submarkets according to commodity, when a company slips under the radar and isn’t being properly valued by investors - whether those investors are institutional or retail. In our opinion such is the case with Cypress Development Corp (TSXV:CYP), which just put out a preliminary economic assessment (PEA) that should have had investors turning their heads so fast they got whiplash. Cypress Development (TSX-V: CYP) (OTCQB: CYDVF) is a publicly traded exploration company focused on developing the Company’s 100%-held Clayton Valley Lithium Project in the State of Nevada, U.S.A. The Company's Clayton Valley Project is located immediately east of Albemarle’s Silver Peak mine, North America’s only lithium brine operation. Exploration by Cypress has discovered an extensive deposit of lithium-bearing claystone adjacent to the brine field. Metallurgical tests have shown the claystone is weak acid leachable with lithium extractions over 80% in 2 to 8 hours. With mineralization tested by drilling over a seven kilometer trend, the size of the deposit makes Clayton Valley a premier target that has the potential to impact the future of lithium production in North America.

America's explosive successes in peace and war were fueled by the radioactive wealth from the Colorado Plateau. The mineral carnotite was a "Pandora's rock" of scientific, medical, industrial and military power for 20th Century America with its unleashed resources of radium, vanadium and uranium. Even though the energetic and frenetic mining and refining of uranium ore in Western Colorado has mostly ceased, its remaining trace elements of memory and controversy still radiate from Uravan and Grand Junction throughout the state, the nation and the world.

The world mining industry was recently faced with tremendous challenges towards sustainable operations as a result of falling metal prices. Most mining industry professionals were laid off from work. Also planned exploration and other expansion activities were halted. In some instances, the down dip of the commodity prices affected the corporate social responsibilities of operating mines. The implications to both professionals and the future landscape of the mining industry cannot be overemphasized. Question is: who are the stakeholders supposed to be involved? what are the factors that are to be considered? what conditions are to be satisfied and who is to be blamed? Worldwide, as the mining industry changes the game towards sustainable operations, the West African Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (WAIMM) is looking at it purely from the industry point of view. A presentation on the 'sustainability of the mining industry in recent times was made at the WAIMM Annual Industry Conference (WAIC 2016) held recently in June. Speaker Stephen Kofi Ndede (Mining Operations Manager, Perseus Mining Ghana Ltd) He has over 25years experience in the mining industry across West Africa and has occupied several high level decision making positions including Mine manager, Operations manager and General manager. He gives us an insight into operations and how all the various players in the industry can contribute towards sustainable operations of the mining industry.

December 12, 2014 Kellogg Innovation Network Launches Development Partner Framework to Inspire Mining for Good New York, NY - As part of its Mining Company of the Future initiative, the Kellogg Innovation Network (KIN) at the Kellogg School of Management, held a high-profile event today to launch the Development Partner Framework (DPF). The framework seeks to inspire and support the mining industry to adopt a new way of thinking and a new approach to how it secures, nurtures and progressively revitalizes its social license to operate. “Society's expectations of the mining industry continue to increase and there is a growing recognition in the industry that incremental improvements to how we run our business are not enough,” said Mark Cutifani, Chief Executive of Anglo American. “Our aspiration is to fundamentally change the extractive business model of the mining industry from insular and reactive, to an integrated and proactive development partner, delivering on economic, environmental and social shared purpose.” Held at the offices of the Ford Foundation, the program was attended by 100 leaders from business, NGO, government, investor, academic, indigenous and community organizations. It began with a welcome from the Ford Foundation President, Darren Walker and featured a keynote address by Mark Cutifani who is co-chair of the KIN Catalyst mining initiative. A diverse panel followed, moderated by Peter Bryant, Senior Fellow at the KIN and consisting of Mark Cutifani, Rev. Séamus P. Finn, OMI (OIP Investment Trust, Chair of Board, Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility), Ray Offenheiser (CEO, Oxfam America) and Mark Podlasly (Senior Advisor, First Nations Energy and Mining Council and Member, Nlaka’pamux Nation). According to Mark Podlasly, the vision for the Development Partner Framework comes “from a deep sense of shared purpose to promote healthy relationships with local communities, flourishing ecosystems and sustainable economic growth. We believe this can be a catalyst for economic sustainability and promote a healthy planet for all.” “Sustainability can no longer be seen as a constraint to growth or pursued only by large organizations whose main approach is reactive and focused on satisfying the reporting requirements of local communities and governments,” says Diego Areces, Mining, Minerals and Metals Segment President at Schneider Electric. “It is becoming a differentiating competitive advantage that concerns every stakeholder, including customers and shareholders, and it won't be long before sustainability is as important as any other financial variable.” Miners must embrace this new mindset and also apply it to the development of their internal strategies for exploration, development, operations and closure. “Without a step change in innovation investment, mining will not be able to meet the expectations of society,” says Henk Beukman, global business director of Mining and Metallurgy Solutions for 3M. “We plan to use science and our technological expertise to develop game-changing solutions to move the industry forward.” “As leaders, we have an opportunity and more importantly a responsibility, to set our industry on a new path that will transform its future,” remarked Peter Bryant who is co-chairing the efforts. “We’ve brought together a creative coalition of leaders across multiple sectors of society. Over the past two years, they’ve helped us set a new direction for the mining industry and we’re excited to bring new players into the conversation through today’s event.” The Kellogg Innovation Network (KIN) is excited to announce the public launch of the Development Partner Framework (DPF) as a road map for the mining industry to adopt a new approach to how it secures, nurtures and progressively revitalizes its social license to operate. More information describing the Development Partner Framework can be found at www.kinglobal.org. About the Kellogg Innovation Network The Kellogg Innovation Network (KIN) at the Kellogg School of Management is a platform for on-going collaboration between Kellogg faculty, corporate innovation leaders and government officials. Founded in 2003, the KIN facilitates strategy and management dialogue to promote innovation-led growth and build long-term value. Through events like KIN Dialogues, KIN Global Summits, KIN Catalysts and KIN Expeditions, we are building a global network of thought leaders who have the collective ability to advance the global prosperity agenda. Rather than delivering lectures, Kellogg faculty members act as facilitators during KIN events and engage in collaborative research with our executive colleagues on topics of interest to our partner companies and the global business community.

In the interview below, Bullfrog Gold (OTC:BFGC) CEO Dave Beling explains why Nevada remains one of North America’s hottest destinations for gold mining and exploration. After working in the mining business for over 50 years, Beling brings a veteran leadership and depth of experience to the Bullfrog team. Following active mining in the late 80’s and 90’s, the price of gold caused mines in Nevada to close, however the resurgence of global gold prices has provided Beling and his company with a new opportunity. Thanks to improvements in new mining technologies like heap leaching, Beling believes the company can maintain a higher cutoff grade on its property, ensuring a proper return for the company and its investors. Bullfrog recently secured over $835,000 in private placement equity financing. The subscriptions were priced at $0.05 per unit, which consisted of one share of the company’s common stock and a two-year warrant to purchase a one-half share at a price of $0.10 per share.

Discussion of metallurgical mining effluent regulations and their effect on pristine Canadian waterbodies, such as Sandy Pond, Newfoundland. Sandy Pond, located on the south side of Long Harbour in Placentia Bay (located approximately 127 km from St. John's) is one of thirteen water bodies in Canada slated to become a dumps for mining and mineral processing wastes. According to the assessment document accepted by Newfoundland and Labrador's Ministry of Environment and Conservation, Sandy Pond is to be damned as a receptacle for wastes from a nickel processing plant, the Inco Hydrometallurgical (Hydromet) Processing Plant. The proposed plant will cost $800 million to build and will process approximately 110 million pounds of nickel, five million pounds of cobalt, and 15 million pounds of copper, and is part of the large Voisy's Bay mining project. The proposed nickel processing project may have severe and lasting environmental impacts, including: * destruction of Sandy Pond for the disposal of 381,000 tonnes per year of nickel processing waste, including sulphur (approximately 60,000 tonnes per year), copper, and nickel; * effluents totalling 3 million cubic metres per year will be discharged to the marine environment; - during normal operations, 600 cubic metres (600,000 litres) per hour of water will be drawn from Rattling Brook Big Pond; * increased risk of accidents and displacement of fishers from traditional fishing grounds caused by increased vessel traffic Placentia Bay. With proposed projects such as a new refinery, proposed LNG trans-shipment facility, and this nickel processing plant, Placentia Bay will receive over 1300 vessels per year, or an average of 7 ship transits per day.

For more info on the 2nd Off Earth Mining Forum see http://www.acser.unsw.edu.au/oemf2015 - Mining Mars Mars offers many opportunities for using in situ resources to reduce the logistic overhead of human missions to the planet. Recent discoveries confirm that Mars has an abundance of water, a history of magmatism, basin development, fluid migration, regolith processes, and evolved granitoid crust that have resulted in observed localised enrichment in potential resources. Use of these potential resources would greatly facilitate Mars exploration and perhaps subsequent settlement. Identifying potential resources is therefore a priority for NASA landing site selection. Split-mission architectures may provide opportunities for commercially funded automated extraction and stockpiling of water, propellants, breathing gases, and perhaps regolith resources before the arrival of crew. Subsequent opportunities at permanent Mars research stations include fabrication of basic structures from regolith resources such as basalt and gypsum, and research into extraction of iron and magnesium. and use of hydrothermal silica and clays. Localised enrichment in base metals have been observed and potential exists for future discovery of sulphide mineralisation. These resources would not be for the development of export industries, but to support development of Mars-based infrastructure and settlement. Australian expertise in all the related fields of resource geology, exploration geophysics and geochemistry, remote area operations, mining, metallurgy, field robotics has an opportunity to make a significant contribution in the field of Mars resource utilisation at an early stage. Experience with the development of good legal frameworks for exploration, development, taxation, and environmental protection in Australia may also aid in shaping the current poorly defined legal framework for martian resources. --- Jon is an astrogeologist who completed his undergraduate and honours degree at the University of Tasmania and a PhD at Flinders University.

Hongxia Duan and Lucy Kitson of the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) will discuss the opportunities and pitfalls of such a large-scale transformation in Shanxi and the lessons China can draw from countries that have undergone the economic and social transition away from coal. In partnership with the Energy Research Institute of China’s National Development and Reform Commission, IISD has undertaken a first-of-its kind study of impacts of the phase out of coal subsidies and coalmine restructuring in Shanxi, one of China’s three main coal-mining regions where the challenges of transitions are expected to be the most severe. Lisa Abbott (Kentuckians for the Commonwealth) will close out the discussion bringing in a comparative discussion on how her group promotes energy diversification in the Appalachians that keeps communities strong.

Malcolm Graham-Wood, Oil analyst and Malcy’s Blog, was joined by the CEO of Circle Oil PLC, Mitchell Flegg, on the Tip TV Finance Show to discuss the re-organisation and the development of the Oil firm into a profitable company across all exploration, appraisal and production. What bought the CEO to the company? Flegg highlighted the world class set of assets and the balance between exploration, appraisal and production as the key reasons for joining Circle Oil PLC. He continued that having both oil and gas production was also important, with gas in Morocco, oil in Egypt and also exciting exploration going on in Tunisia. A lot of attention for Morocco Flegg outlined that although Morocco is not the most important area for their company, there has been a lot of attention placed there for gas. In the past, he commented that the production was left to look after itself while exploration took the forefront, thus more recent focus has been on regaining operational efficiency to become a cost effective producer. He continued that they have a 55km pipeline which enables gas to be sold to industrial users, where they achieve a price over $8 versus the cost price at around $0.65. He concluded that operational excellence is now the goal, with costs down more than 30% already. Egypt a different mind-set Flegg continued to Egypt, where he expressed that they are not the main operator, but have a 40% interest in the field which enables a certain amount of influence over the operator. However, he also highlighted that the field is naturally declining and is past its peak production levels, so now the focus is on maintaining production and protecting resources. On the oil market as a whole, Flegg believed that there is political risk across the majority of oil mines, and Egypt isn’t the only country facing this risk. He finished by noting that there are no security threats over ongoing operations, and that there is also lots of good will towards Egypt from the investment community. Future drilling in Tunisia promising Flegg made it clear that Tunisia is pure exploration, and that Circle Oil PLC needs to go back and appraise that discovery. Following that, Flegg commented the target is to get industry backing in order to take this Tunisia venture further. Results and the future for Circle Oil PLC The interim results for the firm were released around a month ago, and showed a mid-year cash position of $17 million, with assets now profitable and Circle now adding to the cash pile. He finished by outlining that budgets are set, and Circle Oil PLC plans to sell more gas in Morocco, develop the Tunisia prospect further and continue to follow up opportunities within the countries which they are already based.

http://goldstocktrades.com/blog Recently U3O8 Corp (UWE.TO or UWEFF) published a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) on their flagship Berlin Project in Colombia. The study was able to shed light on the potential economics and metallurgical process of the multi commodity project which has uranium, rare earths, vanadium and phosphate. The PEA shows that the project can be economic with zero cash costs for the uranium as it can be paid for by the additional byproducts such as rare earths, vanadium and phosphate. The PEA shows an NPV of $181 million at a 10% discount rate. It must be remembered that the PEA only accounts for one third of the mineralized trend. The company is confident that they can expand the resource possibly three or four times larger than the initial resource which is what the PEA is based on. So it must be remembered that the recent Berlin PEA is just a starting point for the potential economics of this deposit. U3O8 Corp. (UWE.TO or UWEFF) has now proven with the publishing of its NI 43-101 PEA that Berlin may be one of the lowest cost uranium producers in the world. It may become increasingly apparent to the major uranium miners the benefits of the Berlin asset in mining friendly Colombia versus some of the higher cost operations where grades are decreasing, ore is being rapidly depleted or where cash costs are rising rapidly. U3O8 Corp's Berlin multi commodity resource may be a better alternative. Key milestones in 2013 will be further studies on the metallurgy to improve operating costs. U3O8 Corp is looking to demonstrate the size potential at Berlin with further exploration. It must be remembered that there could be 60-80 million lbs of uranium at Berlin.
