  Arizona Geology  
Blog of the State Geologist of Arizona  
  Jack Caldwell is a civil engineer who maintains his professional engineering registration in California. He is officially retired so that he can travel around North America to be with his five grandkids. He was born on the mines of South Africa of mining parents and grandparents. He grew up on the mines of South Africa and once he had spent eleven years gathering three degrees at the University of the Witwatersrand, joined SRK to design tailings dams. This brought him to Canada and subsequently the United States where he worked on molybdenum, gold and uranium mine projects; then to California to work on landfills and the earthquake aspects of law and engineering.  
  International Mining  
  John Chadwick is the author of International Mining. The publication first burst onto the scene in 1984 as the cutting edge magazine written by miners for miners. With over 20 more years of experience under our belts, we’re ready to do it again.   
  Looking For Detachment  
  Silver Fox: fifty-something exploration geologist working here and there in the West, mostly. Geologist, explorationist, artist. Former pool player, Austin Rules (no slop, bank the 8).  
  This may sound sad, but it’s true: We lie awake at night thinking about how manufacturers could save (or avoid spending) money on their metal purchases. It’s a strange thing to think about, but alas, someone has to do it. With this blog, we aim to take a global perspective on the issues, trends, strategies, and trade policies that will impact how you source and/or trade metals and related metals services. From aluminum and steel to rhodium to gallium, from the thinnest gauge foils to the largest castings and forgings available today, we’ll cover a wide range of diverse topics — including green sourcing, lean sourcing, global pricing trends, capacity constraints, supply market M&A activity, and more.

  Republic of Mining  
  Stan Sudol is a self-described “Inco Brat.” He was born in Sudbury, Canada, the richest mining district in North America and among the top ten most significant globally. Sudol grew up in Sudbury during the 1960s and 1970s, where his father and most of his neighbours worked for Inco Limited (now Vale Inco).  Sudol worked for Inco’s Clarabell Mill for one year during 1976/77 and underground at the the company’s Frood-Stobie mine in the summer of 1980. The hard-rock mining culture of the Sudbury Basin has left a tremendously positive impact on him.

Where The Mining Industry Talks  
  Unrealized Mineral Deposit  
  Glenn started his studies in mining engineering in 2007 at UBC. He laboured in electrical engineering at SFU before coming to his senses and emerging from the darkness only to plunge back into the depths of the Earth. He offers a not necessarily average picture of the life, work, interests, activities, and opinions of the next generation of mining engineers. He obviously does not speak for all of them. The implications would be dire were this the case.
