Association of Engineering Geologists, Great Basin Chapter, Monthly Dinner Meeting—March 14, RSVP by March 12 at 5 PM

https://www.aegweb.org/group/GB

Speaker: Dr. Wendy Calvin, PhD
University of Nevada, Reno

Topic: Core Spectral Imaging

“Reflectance spectroscopy is a rapid technique for identifying both hydrothermal alteration and primary mineralogy.” Dr. Calvin will explain the evolution of this technology and its applications.

Abstract: Reflectance spectroscopy is a rapid technique for identifying both hydrothermal alteration and primary mineralogy. Minerals have unique and diagnostic spectral properties, and features such as the band center, strength, shape, and width are used to identify species with high confidence. Laboratory spectroscopy has been used since the 1970’s for determinative mineralogy with field portable instrumentation becoming common in the late 90’s.  Recent advances in commercial spectroscopy include automated mineral identification and core imaging systems. We have surveyed a number of geothermal drill core using portable field instruments and modern tools that provide spectral image data cubes at < 1mm/pixel.   The talk will review the technique including which minerals are diagnostic in various wavelength ranges, compare field instruments with modern core imaging and discuss future projects.

Bio: Dr. Wendy Calvin received her PhD from the University of Colorado in Boulder and is a Foundation Professor and Department Chair for Geological Sciences and Engineering at the University of Nevada in Reno. She has built her career on working with spectroscopic data from terrestrial planets in the solar system (mostly Mars) and has been using the technique for geothermal exploration on Earth since 2002.

Discover Science Lecture Series—March 14

Speaker: Dr. Karen Lloyd
Deep Surface Microbiologist
University of Tennessee, Knoxville
https://micro.utk.edu/faculty/lloyd.php

Topic: Microbes in Weird Places: What Life Is Like Deep in the Earth

“Karen Lloyd studies novel groups of microbes in Earth’s deep surface biosphere, collecting them from disparate remote places such as Arctic fjords, volcanoes in Costa Rica, even deep in mud in the Marianas Trench.

Lloyd applies molecular biological techniques to environmental samples to learn more about microbes that have thus far evaded attempts to be cultured in a laboratory. She has adapted novel techniques to quantify and characterize these mysterious microbes while requiring minimal changes to their natural conditions. Her work centers on deep oceanic subsurface sediments, deep-sea mud volcanoes and cold seeps, terrestrial volcanoes and hot springs, serpentinizing springs, Arctic marine fjord sediments and ancient permafrost. She is currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Tennessee.”

The Nevada Mineral Industry 2017

Authors: John L. Muntean, David A. Davis and Bridget Ayling
Year: 2018
Series: Mineral Industry MI-2017
Format: 212 pages, includes color, plastic comb-bound report

Starting in 1979, NBMG has issued annual reports that describe the mineral (precious and base metals and industrial minerals including aggregate), oil and gas, and geothermal activities and accomplishments.

This report describes those accomplishments in Nevada for 2017, which includes production, reserve, and resource statistics; exploration and development—including drilling for petroleum and geothermal resources, discoveries of orebodies, new mines opened, and expansion and other activities of existing mines; and a directory of mines and mills.

Preparation for this publication was supported by the Nevada Division of Minerals.

Great Basin Science Sample and Records Library (GBSSRL)—View the Core and Cuttings Collection

GBSSRL

The Great Basin Science Sample and Records Library (GBSSRL), located at 2175 Raggio Parkway in Reno, is the Publication Sales and Information Office for the NBMG, as well as a public repository for geologic information for Nevada. This collection includes over 35,000 mining and geologic samples and records.

This unique facility preserves the results of hundreds of millions of dollars of exploration and drilling in locations across Nevada—including some that are no longer accessible. The ability of future generations to reanalyze these archived samples is exceedingly valuable and has resulted in enhanced exploration that otherwise could not have been conducted.

The following resources are available from the Publication Sales and Information Office at the GBSSRL: NBMG and USGS maps and publications; aerial photographs; general geologic and mining information; and cuttings, core, and well records for oil, gas, geothermal, and mineral-exploration drill holes.
