Two of the biggest names in gold just paved the way for lower-risk, lower-cost gold mining. Here's senior geologist Byron King's full report analysis... The post A New Standard in Gold Mining was originally published at The Wall Street Examiner. Follow the money!
An unprecedented collaboration involving 20 countries, 75 institutions, and over 250 marine geologists has yielded a new atlas that’s providing our best glimpse yet of the seafloor at both polar regions of the planet. The images are of significant scientific value, but they’re also quite beautiful. Read more...
Economists and geologists and everyone and their oilman has been telling us that one day, we will hit Peak Oil. One day, we will keep looking for oil, but we won’t find anymore. One day, the demand would greatly outpace the supply. But now one of the biggest oil companies in the world is saying that’s backwards. Read more...

The large crystals, and perhaps life forms within, may be scattered around by a whirlwind that a geologist calls a gravel devil.
The several excavation campaigns conducted in 2012 by geologists, biologists and palaeontologists of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) and the Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont (ICP), together with local geologists...Show More Summary
For two weeks last fall, Ingrid Ukstins lived life on the wild and dangerous side. The University of Iowa volcanologist spent her days collecting samples from a volcano on Tanna, an island in the remote South Pacific archipelago of Vanuatu. The volcano, called Yasur, spews out flaming masses or "bombs"—some the size of a small car.
Conventional wisdom says we need industrial agriculture to feed the world. Not so, says geologist David Montgomery: Practices that focus on creating healthy soil can transform agriculture. The post Healthy Soil is the Real Key to Feeding the World appeared first on The Good Men Project.
Lost river is the first case of ‘river piracy’ in the modern era. Geologists say it has wreaked havoc on the local ecosystem.
Last summer, a team of geologists set out on an expedition to study Slims River in the Yukon, but when they got there, the once majestic river was nowhere to be seen. The scientists attribute the missing river to a retreating glacier, which caused a dramatic shift in the direction of water flow. It’s yet another… Read more...
“River piracy” may seem like a term that invokes paddle-wheeler boats and men with eye patches, but it’s a term familiar to geologists. It’s what happens when the flow of a stream is captured and directed along a new course. Often, such...Show More Summary
In his latest book, Ted Nield (2014) reflects on building stones and what they tell the geologist about where they are. Once upon a time, building stones in Britain were derived locally and told the […]...
Most geologists will be familiar with Palaeozoic and Mesozoic cephalopods, but their Tertiary counterparts are much less well known. It isn’t that Tertiary cephalopods are rare as such – at some localities they can be […]...
In a compelling analysis of the factors that affect how much the ocean will rise along California's coast in coming decades, a seven-member team of experts led by UC Santa Cruz geologist Gary Griggs has issued a report on the best-available sea-level rise science.
Live recordings from a Brazil trip early last year by Animal Collective members Avey Tare and Geologist are set to appear on the recently-announced EP, Meeting of the Waters, out April 22 (Record Store Day) in the form of a limited-edition 12-inch. Show More Summary
