This I2M Web Portal is made available to Clients, Associates, geoscientists, and the general public worldwide with a focus on geoscientific and other matters of interest to I2M management. Topical categories are presented below. The emphasis of the Web portal’s coverage to date is illustrated here. Searches can be conducted using single words, phrases or exact phrases (if you put them in quotes), for example: a simple phrase might be Russian interests in U.S. uranium whereas an exact phrase is "vapor intrusion". I2M Associates personnel also monitor hazardous field conditions around the world via our Field Alerts program, cybersecurity conditions on the Internet in our Security Alert program, and relevant bias in the Media in our Confronting Media Bias Alerts program. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions, comments or suggestions.

WNN reports that the Minerals Council of Australia (MCA) has repeated its call for the Australian government to lift a ban on the development of nuclear power. Australia must reform its taxation, industrial relations, environmental and energy policies to shield the nation from future economic downturn and deliver stronger economic growth, the council said in its pre-Budget submission to the federal government. The 42-page submission sees the MCA, which represents Australia's exploration, mining and minerals processing industry, call for action...

Mark Chalmers, President and Chief Operating Officer of Energy Fuels, announced that the New York Times published what can only be described as a “hit piece” on Energy Fuels and the U.S. uranium mining industry.  The article was full of innuendo, half-truths, obfuscation, and conspiracies, including a major distortion of our position on Bears Ears National Monument, which can be read in our 12/23/2017 press release here:  Energy Fuels Supports Bears Ears National Monument (here).


Unfortunately, today everyone in the U.S. lives in a highly...

Daniel L. Theobald reports that with almost 30,000 total views in 2017, the “Math Solutions” series of tutorial videos from wastewater consultant and trainer Dan Theobald ("Wastewater Dan") has offered plenty of guidance to treatment plant operators. Here are the lessons that drew the most attention. Math computations on your certification examinations or operations of your plant may need distinct calculation types – e.g., conversion, flow, poundage, pump efficiency, volume, and more. Depending on your demanded math solutions pertaining t...

Dr. Conca reports that another study on the economics of nuclear energy found unequivocally that nuclear power plants provide substantial economic benefits to the states and regions in which they reside. In this case, the study focused on the Columbia Generating Station, operated by Energy Northwest, in eastern Washington State. Performed by the Nuclear Energy Institute, the study found that the power plant, with a nameplate capacity recently increased to 1,207 MW, generates over 9 billion kWhs of emission-free electricity every year,...
