Suresh Bansal asks the question - Is the oil we rely on for energy really derived from organic sources (as per fossil fuel theory), or is it constantly being regenerated within the mantle from rocks (as per abiogenic oil theory)?

Scientists have sufficient evidence showing that commercially interesting hydrocarbons have been expelled from organic rich source rock and are trapped in the reservoir rocks. We also have compelling evidence demonstrating the presence of biological molecules in commercial oils.

But in addition to the evidence of an organic origin to oil and natu... More →

WNN reports that the CNSC Study of Consequences of a Hypothetical Severe Nuclear Accident and Effectiveness of Mitigation Measures is the result of a collaborative effort of research and analysis undertaken to address concerns raised during public hearings on the environmental assessment for the refurbishment of Ontario Power Generation (OPG) Darlington nuclear power plant in 2012. The draft study was released for public consultation in June, 2014. Feedback from the Commission itself and comments from over 500 submissions from the public, government and other organizations have been incorporat... More →

Loren Thompson opines that on August 15, only days before global equity markets suffered their worst declines in years, European plane-maker Airbus disclosed the biggest order in its history. IndiGo, a fast-growing economy carrier based in India, ordered 250 A320neo, the latest version of an aircraft that competes directly with Boeing 737. The eye-popping price-tag for the transaction was $26.6 billion, meaning that thousands of jobs will be created at Airbus sites in Europe. And not at Boeing sites in America.

We may never know precisely what role the easy availability of expor... More →

Peninsula Energy announced that it has signed two uranium concentrate sale and purchase agreements with major U.S. power utility companies. The agreements will see the company deliver up to 1,935,000 pounds of uranium from its Lance projects starting in 2016. They were made at prices significantly above current uranium spot price.

The current contracts are for quantities of nearly 2 million pounds with the deliveries starting next year. The contracts are all combined. The ones from 2011, from last year and this year, all with a significant margin above our all-in costs at Stage I an... More →

Voice of Journalists opines that in 2005, Indian nuclear reactors were on the brink of running out of uranium owing to the insufficient uranium stockpiles. However, because of NSG waiver granted to India for successful Indo-U.S nuclear deal, the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper recently pronounced a deal, wherein Canadian Cameco Corporation will supply India with 3,000 metric tonnes of Uranium over the next five years.

Interestingly, the deal comes 45 years after Canada officially banned all exports of uranium to India in 1974, followin... More →

Index / Geophysics - Environmental, Geological, Geotech
Jeanmarie Ryan reports that muons are elementary particles that are 200 times heavier than electrons. A muon decays to form either an electron or a positron. Muons are created when cosmic rays interact with earth atmosphere, and they inherit the high energy of these cosmic rays. Because of this, they can pass through dense objects, although they slow down while doing so.

In the 1960s, Luis Alvarez came up with the idea of using muon tomography in archeology to study pyramids and ancient ruins. A muon detector is placed within or beneath the pyramid. It measures the energies and traj... More →

Muon tomography is a spinoff from particle physics by studying the magma chambers of active volcanoes. But it is also a new tool for geophysical mineral exploration. Other possible applications:

Monitoring carbon sequestration
Monitoring water seepage
Identifying voids
Archeology investigations
Monitoring nuclear waste and reactors
Scanning for contraband nuclear materials

A successful field trial has been performed. Muon geotomography imaged a known massive sulfide deposit in a complex geological environment. Inverted 3D density images of the dep... More →

Samir Patel reports that the prototype muon detector can identify stacks of bricks through concrete roof of a laboratory. A plot of the data shows that fewer muons make it through the densest material. Similarly, buildings around the detector cast muon shadows. A narrow green band corresponds to a corridor within the building. A similar signal might indicate a tomb in a Maya pyramid.

Bertrand Marotte reports that the head of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) slammed a report by the Province and its environmental regulation agency for allegedly misleading Quebeckers and Canadians on the safety of uranium mining. In a damning letter to Quebec Environment Minister David Heurtel, the chief executive officer of the CNSC, Michael Binder, says it is very troubling to have a provincial agency present your government with conclusions and recommendations that lack scientific basis and rigor.

Quebec BAPE recently released a 626-page report recommending to the E... More →

Tracy Weslosky reports that Peak Resources Ltd. announced their recent closing of their bankable feasibility study financing for US$29.5 Million with the Appian Fund and IFC. In this interview, they discuss the cost advantages of Peak concentrate grades and the impact on their metallurgy processes. With the Peak Ngualla Rare Earth Project in Tanzania as their focus, the cost of production of the magnetic materials neodymium and praseodymium is anticipated to make them competitive with Chinese projects.

The IFC invests in a lot of different developing economies and certainly Tanzani... More →
