“Even as much as the world has become available for exploration over the past decade, miners continue to return to Nevada. Why? Political stability, transparent regulatory environment, good infrastructure and GREAT GEOLOGICAL POTENTIAL. Miners return to focus on Nevada’s geology and its important mineral deposit types: Carlin, epithermal and intrusion-related gold and silver, as well as other deposit types (porphyry Cu and Mo, IOCG and industrial materials) are also rising in importance.”

A message from Laura Ruud, GSN Office Manager:  The GSN 2015 Symposium Committee has been hard at work for months now organizing the next magnificent GSN Symposium to be held May 14-24, 2015!  [Please see link below for] the first announcement flyer, and we encourage you to read and share with any colleagues you wish that may not be GSN members and who will want to participate.  The Committee has already started lining up the field trip itineraries, speakers, exhibitors, posters, a core-shack, and a joint GSN-SEG Forum to be held on May 17, 2015 the day before the Symposium technical sessions begin.

Questions regarding the meeting can be directed to Molly Hunsaker, Symposium Chair, at mollymhunsaker@2015gsnsymposium.org.  If you have questions about submitting an abstract, or an idea for a technical paper, the Technical Program Chairs are John Muntean and Moira Smith.

Co-hosts for the GSN Symposium 2015 are Society of Economic Geologists, Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology, and U.S. Geological Survey.

Retirement of DD LaPointe

LaPointe

A message from Jim Faulds:  DD LaPointe retired from NBMG as of December 31, 2013. DD had a 33-year-long career with NBMG beginning in 1980. Her contributions are many, but some of the highlights include compiling mining district and prospect data that have been used in many reports, serving as Mackay scholarship chair for 15 years (1996-2011), research on carbon sequestration in Nevada, revising the State Hazard Mitigation Plan, editor of NBMG publications from 2006-2013, and many geological education and outreach activities for K-12 teachers and students.

In the link below, you will find a summary of DD’s contributions through the years. As you can see, DD’s talent for sharing the excitement of geology and science touched a wide range of people—NBMG staff, K-12 and university teachers and students, the geologic community, other state agencies, and the general public of Nevada—and we will all miss DD and her many contributions immensely. We hope that she continues to stay involved in the activities that have been so valuable to the citizens of Nevada.
