Uranium Market Poised to Take-Off?
 
04:25
KITCO NEWS – The uranium market has been in a five-year bear market that shows no signs of bouncing back. But, one junior uranium player says the commodity is set for a strong move up. Kitco News caught up with Amir Adnani, CEO and president of Corpus Christi, Texas-based Uranium Energy (UEC), on the sidelines of the world’s largest mining conference, the Prospectors and Developers Conference (PDAC) in Toronto, which wrapped this week. 'The spot price has pulled back over the past few weeks – I think we are set for strong price movement – I think we will see a strong year for uranium,' Adnani added. He is also invested in gold and is the founder of junior exploration company, Brazil Resources. On the topic of gold, Adnani said it is the 'ultimate anti-establishment trade, as Donald Trump is the anti-establishment vote.'

Global Warming: Greens vs Nuclear - "Th" Thorium Documentary
 
22:37
Coal ash piles contain more radioactive material than released by any operating nuclear power plant. Pollution from coal kills hundreds of thousands of people every year. Yet Germany and Japan are building additional coal plants to replace nuclear power plants. This has a short-term cost in lives (due to air pollution) and very serious implications for global warming. As our van of thorium advocates discuss various energy options, we hear from prominent environmentalists and climatologists who support (or who have recently come to support) expansion of nuclear power. Support of nuclear power among climate scientists is nothing new, but creating this video would have been impossible even 1 year ago. That we can quickly summarize why these scientists changes their minds is thanks to "Pandora's Promise" http://pandoraspromise.com/ by Robert Stone (prominent environmentalist). He had come to change his mind about nuclear power, and has fellow environmentalists explain their own pro-nuclear reasoning as an indirect means of expressing his own. What "Pandora's Promise" does not include is Robert Stone's own voice (except when he confronts prominent anti-nuke Dr. Helen Caldicott from behind the camera). It is Robert Stone (and fellow pro-nuclear environmentalists) interviews surrounding Pandora's Promise that has allowed this video summary to be created. Baroness Bryony Worthington's offers additional commentary on the environmentalist perspective, having worked on climate change for Friends of the Earth, and drafted the extremely impactful UK Climate Change Bill. The bills was passed in late 2013, and helps ensure that existing coal plants in UK need to meet similar emission standards as new ones... a significant step in reducing UK GHG emissions. "Next Generation Reactors" are discussed by both Pandora's Promise environmentalists, and our van full of thorium advocates. Not every environmentalist or scientist shown here is talking in support of the same "next generation" reactor. We take a closer look at different next-generation reactors in a future video chapter. But all pro-nuclear scientists do agree that any next-generation reactor will achieve a much higher level of passive safety ("walk away safe"), will help reduce our carbon emissions, and will save hundreds of thousands of lives thanks to reductions in deadly air pollution created by burning fossil fuels.

TRER a 'multi-trick pony' Deposit with 25 Minerals: 15 Rare Earths and 2 Energy Minerals
 
07:29
John Tumazos, Chairman of the Board, Texas Rare Earth Resources Corp. (OTCQX: TRER) in an interview with Tracy Weslosky, Publisher of ProEdgeWire (ProEdgeWire.com) states: "We believe we are the richest beryllium deposit known" and adds "we think we have the best logistics in the world and the lowest mining costs per ton of any mine in North America of any type." Tumazos noted that TRER is a "multi-trick pony" deposit having 25 minerals, 15 of which rare earths and two energy minerals. TRER has the capability to recover 18 or 19 of these, which suggests that the property could "earn an economic return from the 15 rare earths alone or uranium and thorium alone". TRER can also capitalize on its beryllium (298,000 ton historical resource estimate) and niobium resources. It should be an exciting 2013 for TRER Disclaimer: Texas Rare Earth Resources Corp. is a member of ProEdgeWire.

Nuclear Power and Bomb Testing Documentary Film
 
52:35
The Waste Isolation Pilot Plant, or WIPP, is the world's third deep geological repository (after closure of Germany's Repository for radioactive waste Morsleben and the Schacht Asse II Salt Mine) licensed to permanently dispose of transuranic radioactive waste for 10,000 years that is left from the research and production of nuclear weapons. It is located approximately 26 miles (42 km) east of Carlsbad, New Mexico, in eastern Eddy County. In order to address growing public unrest concerning construction of the WIPP, the New Mexico Environmental Evaluation Group (EEG) was created in 1978. This group, charged with overseeing the WIPP, verified statements, facts, and studies conducted and released by the DOE regarding the facility. The stewardship this group provided effectively lowered public fear and let the facility progress with little public opposition in comparison to similar facilities around the nation such as Yucca Mountain in Nevada. The EEG, in addition to acting as a check for the government agencies overseeing the project, acted as a valuable advisor. In a 1981 drilling, pressurized brine was again discovered. The site was set to be abandoned when the EEG stepped in and suggested a series of tests on the brine and the surrounding area. These tests were conducted and the results showed that the brine deposit was relatively small and was isolated from other deposits. Drilling in the area was deemed safe due to these results. This saved the project valuable money and time by preventing a drastic relocation. In 1979 Congress authorized construction of the facility. In addition to formal authorization, Congress redefined the level of waste to be stored in the WIPP from high temperature to transuranic, or low level, waste. Transuranic waste often consists of materials which have come in contact with radioactive substances such as plutonium and uranium. This often includes gloves, tools, rags, and assorted machinery often used in the production of nuclear fuel and weapons. Although much less potent than nuclear reactor byproducts, this waste still remains radioactive for approximately 24,000 years. This change in classification led to a decrease in safety parameters for the proposed facility, allowing construction to continue at a faster pace. The first extensive testing of the facility was due to begin in 1988. The proposed testing procedures involved interring samples of low level waste in the newly constructed caverns. Various structural and environmental tests would then be performed on the facility to verify its integrity and to prove its ability to safely contain nuclear waste. Opposition from various external organizations delayed actual testing into the early 1990s. Attempts at testing were resumed in October 1991 with US Secretary of Energy James Watkins announcing that he would begin transportation of waste to the WIPP. Despite apparent progress on the facility, construction still remained costly and complicated. Originally conceptualized in the 1970s as a warehouse for waste, the repository now had regulations similar to those of nuclear reactors. As of December 1991, the plant had been under construction for 20 years and was estimated to have cost over one billion dollars. At the time, WIPP officials reported over 28 different organizations claiming authority over operations of the facility. In November 1991, a federal judge ruled that Congress must approve WIPP before any waste, even for testing purposes, was sent to the facility. This indefinitely delayed testing until Congress gave its approval. The 102nd United States Congress passed legislation allowing use of the WIPP. The House of Representatives approved the facility on October 6, 1992 and the Senate passed a bill allowing the opening of the facility on October 8 of the same year. The bill was met with much opposition in the Senate. Senator Richard H. Bryan fought the bill based on safety issues that concerned a similar facility located in Nevada, the state for which he was serving as senator. His efforts almost prevented the bill from passing. New Mexico senators Pete V. Domenici and Jeff Bingaman effectively reassured Senator Bryan that these issues would be addressed in the 103rd Congress. The final legislation provided safety standards requested by the House and an expedited timeline requested by the Senate. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waste_Isolation_Pilot_Plant

Environmental Politics and Law (EVST 255) To illustrate the linkages among national security, secrecy, and environmental quality, Professor Wargo describes the Atomic Energy Commission's nuclear tests in the 1950s. The Atomic Energy Commission collected data on the spread of radionuclides from the nuclear tests, and discovered that the radionuclides were circulating around the world. This process of discovery raised issues regarding ways to manage risks to the population while both continuing the nuclear tests and keeping them secret for national security reasons. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

The deposit occurs in an ancient meander (oxbow), which is now a valley margin swamp, on the flood plain of the Okanagan River where it has eroded into a glacial terrace. Uraniferous groundwaters are infiltrating from side drainages into the porous terrace and uranium deposits occur where the uranium is adsorbed and probably reduced, in this case, in some peaty layers.

It is one of the more popular forms of yellowcake and is shipped between mills and refineries in this form. Triuranium octoxide occurs naturally as the olive-green-colored mineral pitchblende. U3O8 is readily produced from UF6 and has potential long-term stability in a geologic environment. In the presence of oxygen (O2), uranium dioxide (UO2) is oxidized to U3O8, whereas uranium trioxide (UO3) loses oxygen at temperatures above 500 °C and is reduced to U3O8. The compound can be produced by any one of three primary chemical conversion processes, involving either uranium tetrafluoride (UF4) or uranyl fluoride (UO2F2) as intermediates, under normal environmental conditions, U3O8 is one of the most kinetically and thermodynamically stable forms of uranium and also because it is the form of uranium found in nature.

Peak delivers robust PFS, making it one of the largest rare earth deposits in the world
 
06:42
March 31, 2014 - Darren Townsend, Managing Director for Peak Resources Ltd. ('Peak', ASX: PEK | OTCQX: PKRLY) speaks to Tracy Weslosky, Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of InvestorIntel, about the recently issued pre-feasibility study (PFS), which has no doubt contributed to a recent uptrend in the share price. Darren attributes the success of the PFS to Peak's effective in-house capabilities characterized by great 'teamwork' and input from a few outside consultants: "The highlight is just the quality of the resource, reserve, the 58 year mine life, spitting out about 121 million dollars a year...any sort of long life project like that is pretty good. And I think the most important thing probably is the CAPEX. As we all know, in these challenging financing climates, to be able to get your initial CAPEX down is absolutely critical." Peak's scoping study suggested a 373 million dollar CAPEX. Since then and as part of the PFS, Darren stressed that they knocked down the CAPEX to 367 million but this figure also includes a previously unaccounted 30% contingency, so "we actually knocked 90 odd million off the underlying CAPEX number". Tracy brings attention to the PFS's surprisingly quick projected payback period, which is will be in the third year. Darren adds that the 39% rate of return is also favorable. As for an overview of the Ngualla Project itself, which has been rather "under the radar" for North American investors, Darren explains that it was a virgin discovery in 2010 and that it has only taken four years to go from discovery to PFS suggesting that the Peak team has done a lot of "good work in a very short period of time". Darren specifically credits the talents of technical director Dave Hammond and metallurgical specialist Gavin Beer. The Ngualla project is located in southwestern Tanzania, which, as Darren notes, is a "very good mining jurisdiction in Africa; it is the actually the third largest gold mining country in Africa. So it has some good mining laws that were updated in 2010." The Ngualla Project itself also offers metallurgical advantages given the fact that the deposits have shown a mineralization, bastnaesite -- typically rich in lanthanum, cerium and most importantly in yttrium - with very little uranium and thorium content, which eases processing and reduces capital cost requirements. Darren said he expects production to begin in mid-2017. Meanwhile, in 2014, Peak will be working toward concluding discussion with some strategic partners: "we've got an MOU already in place with a Chinese group, so we're continuing with those discussions and the phone after the last set of results, as you can imagine, has been ringing pretty hot so we look forward to opening other discussions with progressing the project as rapidly as we can". Peak's Ngualla deposit has a maiden mineral resource of 170 million tons at 2.24% REO, making it one of the largest and highest grade rare earth deposits in the world.

(OTCQX: TRER) and discusses Texas Rare Earth Resources' revised CAPEX from $2.1 billion to under $300 million, its shockingly low market cap, how the company's resource (with a NPV or over $1 billion) is comprised of "critical" rare earths, its 100-plus-year mine life, the status of the company's revised Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA), US REE sustainability, and how TRER's land and the China clay deposits are the only REE deposits in the world to use heap leach extraction. Tracy begins: Anthony, your company has a shockingly low market cap for what you have. Why don't you do our audience a huge favor and tell them what kind of opportunity they have with Texas Rare Earths Resources. AM: We have a NI 43-101-compliant resource, which was published last year, with a net present value (NPV) of over $1 billion. We're in the process of actually revising that PEA, originally projected to have a capital cost of $2.1 billion and still very profitable (to under $350 million). We are in the process of completing our (revised) PEA and it will be released shortly. TW: The speculative mine life for Texas Rare Earths is 100-plus years, correct? AM: Yes, that is correct and that's based only on Round Top Mountain (Texas Rare Earth Resources' flagship project in Hudspeth, Texas). We have three other mountains, which have not yet been fully developed. TW: With all of the current issues and debate surrounding (REE) sustainability in the US, I would think that the federal government would be looking to participate with Texas Rare Earths Resources. Can you tell me what's happening on the sustainability front and what kind of initiatives that you're currently working on? AM: Interestingly enough, our resource is comprised primarily of what is now referred to as "critical" rare earths. In the not-too-distant future we will be producing elements like yttrium (which is not technically a heavy rare earth, but critical rare earth), dysprosium, and holmium. We strongly believe the US federal government will have an interest in what we're doing -- and I'll leave it at that for now. TW: InvestorIntel published an article on the critical metal holmium and Gareth Hatch got in on the debate and commented that how significant your holmium deposit is. Based on our research Texas Rare Earth Resources has the largest deposit potential resource for holmium in the US. Is that correct? AM: I would venture to say -- according to Gareth and his statistics -- I would venture to say probably the world. Holmium is an interesting element. I believe, as have others in the field, that once you have supply that demand follows. There are lots of industries, lots of companies that would love to have this kind of supply, in order to develop products. And unfortunately, in our industry, supply first has to come online in order for demand to pick up. We strongly believe that we could be a major supplier of holmium, which primarily for the most part would be in defense programs for the foreseeable future. TW: You have a host rock for extraction that provides a metallurgical competitive advantage. Can you give a bit of an overview? AM: Sure. Our host rock is yttrofluorite. To the best of our knowledge, we are the only deposit in the world that is whose host rock is yttrofluorite. In more practical terms, what that means is that we will be able to use (and we have made this public) sulphuric acid to potentially heap leach the deposit. Heap leaching means extremely low costs. The only deposits to the best of our knowledge in the world that are heap leachable are the China clay deposits - and ours as well. TW: You have numerous elements that provide a competitive advantage. What other benchmarks can we expect to see? AM: We will get the (revised) PEA out. We believe that based on our PEA, which we have publicly stated, our CAPEX should come in anywhere from $150 to $350 million, down form $2.1 billion. We believe based on the strength of our upcoming PEA, we will have an edge with securing potential memorandums or offtake agreements with interested parties around the world. And we have received interest in that area as well. The next step would be to finish the bankable feasibility study as well as start the licencing procedure. And I can't emphasize this enough: being in the state of Texas is a huge advantage. The other advantage we have is that we are not on federal property. We are not under BLM management; we're not under Forest Service management. The state of Texas is our partner. And it's a great partner to have because what we owe them is a royalty. The way the state makes its money is for the mine to come into production. Texas is an incredible partner. Disclaimer: Texas Rare Earth Resources is an InvestorIntel advertorial member.

Frontier Rare Earths to keep the world in 'Heavies' for a Decade
 
07:04
May 17, 2013 -- James Kenny, President & CEO, Frontier Rare Earths Ltd. ('Frontier', TSX: FRO) in an interview with Dave Glover for ProEdgeWire (ProEdgeWire.com) describes the Zandkopsdrift rare earth deposit as unique among peers based on the scale of the deposit. James Kenny comments: "We have approximately 1 million tons of rare earths in our deposit. We can supply...the entire world for approximately 10 years." He adds that, compared to most, "Frontier has a very large deposit and we have a very favorable distribution, so the breakdown of our grade is very attractive; we have a very high distribution of those elements which are used in rare earth magnets, which is the major growth area". Ultimately, the Frontier 'advantage' comes from a combination of "low radioactivity, high grade, attractive distribution and we have a known host mineral, which means that the process risk in going from mining to separated rare earth oxide is lower." In December 2012, Frontier completed a major strategic partnership agreement with the South Korean Government signed through Korea Resources Corporation ("Kores") focused on the financing. As a major user of rare earths and dependent upon China for supply, Kores - a major user of rare earths - has "a 10% stake ... for which they paid 24 million dollars." In addition, said James Kenny, as far as the radioactivity from thorium and/or uranium that is typically associated with rare earth deposits, "we are very fortunate that the levels of raidoactivity at Zandokopsdrift are very low and do not provide us with any significant challenge in terms of disposal". Frontier Rare Earths is in the middle of a prefeasibility study which will be completed in Q3 this year and will further confirm the technical and economic viability of the project.

Rare Earth Minerals shares to ‘re-test highs 2016 highs’
 
01:41
Technical analyst Zak Mir reckons the Rare Earth Minerals PLC (LON:REM) share price is in “recovery mode and is on course to re-test the highs of last summer. “The start of 2017 has seen the share price break back above both the 50-day and 200-day moving averages,” Mir explains in the latest Proactive Investors Bulletin Board segment. “If we can maintain this momentum, initial resistance would [come at] the September support at 0.7p, and then after that up to the highs of last year through 0.9p.” “At this stage, only really back below 0.5p would flag a possible break to the downside but at the moment it looks like we’re in recovery mode for Rare Earth Minerals,” Mir adds.

U.S. Bill HR 4883 discussed by rare earth market leaders
 
11:09
August 13, 2014 -- Tracy Weslosky, Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of InvestorIntel, speaks to leaders from the rare earths sector in the United States to gauge their support for HR Bill 4883. On June 17 of this year, US House Representative, Steve Stockman, introduced Bill HR 4883 “to provide for the establishment of a National Rare-Earth Refinery Cooperative, and for other purposes. The Bill was referred to the House Committee on Armed Services. The Bill intends to reduce the United States’ reliance on Chinese rare earths by encouraging an increase in US production by facilitating the processing of thorium-bearing rare-earth concentrates as residual unprocessed and unrefined ores. The general point of the law is to encourage the US defense department to purchase rare earth minerals from domestic sources. Anthony Marchese, the Chairman for Texas Rare Earth Resources Corp (OTCQX: TRER) says that he has spoken to Congressman Stockman, who is from Houston. Anthony says that the Bill “neither helps not hurts us but it is very important in that it focuses the US Congress on the problem of trying to stimulate a domestic rare earth program, especially for defense.” Jack Lifton the Founding Principal of Technology Metals Research LLC considers HR 4883 as “the right idea but they’re going at it the wrong way.” Jack is concerned about the emphasis on thorium because “this is something that is not going to happen in any reasonable amount of time.” The main problem is that pegging the advancement of rare earth refining in the United States to an eventual adoption of thorium based nuclear reactors is “simply too long a shot…and thorium is not going to be a good driver for the future of rare earths.” Jim McKenzie, the President and CEO for Ucore Rare Metals (TSXV: UCU | OTCQX: UURAF), suggests that while it is a commendable effort to encourage the US rare earth industry -- Bill 4883 ‘is a little misguided”. In the case of Ucore’s Bokan project, it “just doesn’t apply”, as it has negligible amounts of thorium or uranium bearing ores. Jim advises the public to consider HR Bill 1600, sponsored by Senator Murkowski of Alaska, as it applies to both thorium rich and thorium free rare earth resources. James C. Kennedy, President of ThREE Consulting has worked on the development of HR 4883. James believes that the rare earth market is neither a ‘free market, a level playing field or the lowest cost producer”. James says that the Bill comes down to an effort to correct the current “legislative and regulatory disadvantage for US and Western producers of rare earths.” Kevin Cassidy, the CEO for US Rare Earths (OTCBB: UREE), supports any effort to encourage the mining and processing of rare earths in the United States. He says HR 4883 is clearly aimed at allowing “less dependency on China and more self reliance on North American production.” It also encourages manufacturers to return and invest in the United States.

"Recycling Rare Earth Elements" by Thomas Zemb, ICSM deputy director
 
04:59
Rather than importing rare earth elements from mining, why not tap into the recycling deposit? Thomas Zemb, head of the Marcoule Institute for Separative Chemistry since its creation in 2005 until 2012, offers a bold and innovative solution combining nanoscale aggregates, ultrasound and microfluidics. His objective: to divide the volume of acid generated by existing methods by thirty! Funded by an ERC Advanced Grant, this emblematic project symbolizes the mission of an institute that leverages the CEA expertise developed for the nuclear industry and strives to meet the challenges of the twenty-first century. Solar panels, wind turbines, lithium batteries and fuel cells all have an Achilles' heel: the availability of rare earth elements that are indeed quite "rare". Not many of us know that the permanent magnets of offshore wind turbines can contain up to 600 kilos of neodymium, and that in about twenty years, these facilities will reach the end of their life cycle. However, the current recycling processes, which were inspired by the mining industry, cause the formation of entire lakes of concentrated acid, and this is incompatible with Western environmental standards. So what is the solution? It is simply to invent "soft" chemical processes which can be implemented during the recycling process to securely extract all of the valuable elements. Sorting molecules and atoms This is the approach adopted by the Marcoule Institute for Separative Chemistry (ICSM), whose mission adheres to the principles of circular economy. Thomas Zemb states: "Today, there is no theory of chemical separation. Synapses in our brain perfectly recognize potassium and sodium ions, but we still don't know why some ions pass through channels with a diameter of less than a nanometer, and some don't." By better understanding the physicochemical mechanisms at this level, researchers will be able to develop efficient recycling processes that are completely different from existing ones. ICSM was created in 2005 to take on this exact challenge. The institute stems from the CEA Nuclear Energy Division (DEN) and the DSM, and like many DSM fundamental research laboratories, it is a joint research unit between CNRS, University of Montpellier and École nationale supérieure de chimie de Montpellier. Nuclear Fuel and Microalgae The ICSM can rely on the knowledge accumulated by DEN teams in terms of chemical separation, as CEA is at the root of the reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel from the French nuclear power industry. This process consists in separating the atoms that can still be used in reactors from other atoms, considering that spent fuel contains almost all the elements of the periodic table! This unique experience now also addresses many other issues related to the sorting of molecules and atoms. How to rid drinking water of traces of drugs or pesticides? How can we dewater microalgae without altering the molecules they produce, or spending more than the energy they deliver?...

Stans Energy Chairman provides an update on international arbitration case
 
07:31
April 9, 2014 -- Rodney Irwin, Chairman and acting President of Stans Energy Corp.('Stans', TSX-V: HRE | OTCQX: HREEF) speaks to Tracy Weslosky, Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of InvestorIntel about the complexities of Kyrgyzstan and how Stans has managed to deal with them and one of the most recent and flagrant examples has been the Inter-District Court of Bishkek ruling in favor of the Kyrgyz General Prosecutor's Office (SPO) with respect to its claim regarding Stans' Kutessay II Project. The decision, as it stands, would essentially imply the annulment of Stans' whole license acquisition process. Stans has regularly defended itself, producing all relevant documents filed since the outset of its venture. Rodney says that Stans "is waiting for a written decision from the Court [of Bishkek] and then we'll take it for appeal to a higher court." Nevertheless, Stans remains optimistic and maintains an active operations timeline "although the Kyrgyz Government is never above throwing you a curve; and one of the curves simply means that the government has fallen and that we'll have a new one." That always means that officials and ministers change and you have to go through a period to get them back working and signing documents. But, we feel that we've stayed on target with our principal issue, which is our international arbitration where we're suing the government of Kyrgyzstan for effectively preventing us from working on developing our mine and we think that that the arbitration process is going to come to a conclusion fairly shortly." Rodney expects that Stans will be slowed down by a matter of months, if not weeks, and that in the grand scheme "it's not all that serious" a delay. There may even be a benefit. Rodney says that the recent decision by the Court "supports our arbitration case, where we have said that effectively the government has prevented us from being able to develop our mining property. And this case, which the Government has brought against us and has won in the interim, until we go to appeal, presents us with more evidence that we can deliver to the arbitration court, not permitting us to develop my mining property is effectively an expropriation." On the technical side, aside from the emerging market risk, Stans offers a great advantage in that "we have taken over a project that historically operated in the good old days of the USSR. This was a rare earth mine that produced a lot of rare earths and when the USSR collapsed, this mine was effectively closed down." Moreover, the mine has an associated processing plant, which Stans purchased and has been putting back together. This means that Stans has the right metallurgy to produce the oxides and metals. In the Soviet period, the Kashka Rare Earth Processing Plant (KRP), as it was known, was used to produce some 120 different metals, alloys, and oxides. The Kutessay-2 field during Soviet times delivered up to 80% of the USSR's rare earth supply. Kutessay-2 contains up to 15 rare-earth elements, as well as lead, zinc, silver, bismuth, molybdenum, thorium, tin, and copper. In addition, it contains niobium, tantalum and hafnium. The only obstacle standing between Stans moving to full operation is the Government's obstruction, which will be dealt by the arbitration process.

For example, it is often stated that nuclear power plants are very large and cost at least a couple of billion dollars. However, ever since there have been nuclear power plants, there have been some that have been small enough to fit inside submarines. One of those submarines is only 12 feet in diameter and could fit on half of a football field. It has also been said that nuclear power plants must operate at a nearly constant power level, yet they can power both submarines and aircraft carriers through extreme maneuvers....

Ravi Sood: Renewable Energy Yield Companies Provide Unbeatable Returns, Despite the Oil Crash!
 
25:39
Even at $150 per barrel oil, renewable energy never had a chance at competing with fossil fuels! With oil down to $31 per barrel, formerly contemplated renewable projects are being shelved. That is because renewable projects are characterized by prohibitively high construction costs (CAPEX). But there is a bright side to this story! Sunshine, wind, and water are all free, meaning operating costs are exceedingly low. It might not make sense to build a solar farm, but owning one could be good for your bank account! Ravi Sood, Chairman of Transeastern Power Trust, saw this opportunity beginning to play out years ago, and decided to make a move. The idea? Build a portfolio of cash flowing, renewable assets in strong jurisdictions that would pay a consistent and high dividend. And that is exactly what Ravi did, which led him to Romania. The country of Romania benefits from European Union renewable tax credits. Equally important, Romania is well suited for renewable power generation. The sun often shines, winds are strong, and drastic variations in elevation lead to strong flows of water. Long story short – the concept worked. The idea caught on with industry titans Rick Rule and Eric Sprott who made significant investments. The trust now owns several assets harnessing the power of the sun, wind, and water. Due to low shares prices, the trust is effectively paying a yield of 17%!!! In this exclusive interview, Ravi discusses the logic behind building a renewable yield company in a world of cheap energy. Ravi Sood is a financier and venture capitalist. Mr. Sood is the founder and former CEO of Navina Asset Management, a Toronto-based investment firm that was acquired by a major financial institution. Mr. Sood has also founded several natural resources based businesses including Feronia Inc., one of Africa’s largest employers, where he serves as Chairman. Mr. Sood is also a director of Elgin Mining Inc. and TrueContext Mobile Solutions Corp. Mr. Sood holds a B.Mathematics(Hons) degree from the University of Waterloo. Talking Points from this week's interview: • Wind farms tend to run at only 20% efficiency on average; solar does not fare much better • Dividends in the mid-teens are possible in renewables, even without tax credits? • The renewable energy sector continues to expand, despite low oil prices • And why the subsidy on fossil fuels may be coming to an end

Lifton on Chinese illegal rare earths and the impact of the IMF yuan ruling
 
12:09
December 7, 2015 — In a special InvestorIntel interview, Publisher Tracy Weslosky speaks with Jack Lifton, Sr. Editor for InvestorIntel about Rare Mettle author Ann Bridges positioning rare earths as “sexy and fun”. Addressing his recent InvestorIntel column on Professor Kingsnorth’s presentation on how the rare earths industry is “plagued by illegal production in China”, Jack goes on to explain how the intended impact of the WTO ruling has failed. Citing the recent IMF approval of the Chinese yuan to its basket of reserve currencies, Jack explains why this not only “makes a lot of difference” but will be a game-changer to the pricing of technology metals. Tracy Weslosky: Well Jack, in lieu of you being jetlagged I’m going to start by asking you about the column we just published on InvestorIntel by Ann Bridges. She describes rare earths as both sexy and fun. Now Jack, would you like to comment on this? Do you feel that rare earths are sexy and fun? Jack Lifton: No, but of course, she’s probably about 50 years younger than I am. She might have a different perspective then I do. Tracy Weslosky: Well, our stocks would all be moving north if we were indeed marketing them this way. So let’s move from sexy and fun to Professor Dudley Kingsnorth because that’s an obvious segue here. I know you and Professor Kingsnorth had several conversations in Singapore. He did a presentation called, “The Global Rare Earths Industry Today Plagued by Illegal Production in China”. How about you start by telling us what you think this presentation was all about. Jack Lifton: Dudley is pointing out that we have to live with so-called illegal production because in fact it seems to be sort of winked at by the Chinese authorities and they have to have it. There is not enough official legal production to meet the demands of the rare earth industry without this so-called illegal production. It’s not just a matter of language. It’s a matter of culture. The Chinese are doing everything they can, of course, to increase employment, make Chinese people richer, have a better standard of living. Anything you do in China to do that is considered to be okay. I think that Dudley pointed out, it’s obvious to me there’s a whole lot of little places doing illegal mining even refining and maybe metal making that are sort of not exactly on the radar, but they provide jobs and security for people and nobody is just arbitrarily stopping this. See I’ve always looked at this as some more insidious thing, like people evading taxes and destroying the land, but in fact Dudley’s position, and he’s probably right -- is that this is really just the way things go on in China. Even though the Chinese government would like to regulate everything and know everything that’s going on, they’re more practical than that. They know that there’s a limit to how much they could know and you can’t just stop things without consequences. So this is going to be a long drawn-out affair in this reduction of illegality. It may never happen, but we have to learn to live with it and stop worrying about it because it’s the way it is. When you work out how much material the Chinese are producing you have to add this material in there. The real problem here is we really don’t know exactly how much is being produced, who’s producing it or what it’s selling for. Other than that we’re right on top of this.

Steve has worked many years in the rare earths sector and he admits to having noted a great deal of confusion in the market if not, even, a great deal of ignorance and he has welcomed the chance to help people get a better understanding of the sector. Tracy challenges Steve to identify a company that is “doing it right”, that is one that has covered all the right steps in both exploration and processing. Steve picks Alkane Resources (ASX: ALK | OTCQX: ALKEF). Alkane started as a zirconium-niobium business “then realized they had rare earths in their portfolio and at the time it became valuable.” Alkane concentrated on its core business and then extracted the rare earths during the separation process. Steve describes it as a ‘by-product model. Steve also discusses some of the mistakes that the emerging rare earth companies have made on the path to production. Perhaps the main mistake, he says, is made especially by supply side companies outside of China, which “are not acting together”. When the demand side observes the disunity, they become pessimistic about the chances of a rare earths industry from even developing because of insufficient supply. Therefore, Steve sees the mistake as stemming from secrecy: “I think the key to success is for people to get together”. Tracy leads the chat toward Steve’s “keys to success” points. Steve’s favorite ‘success factor’, albeit taking into consideration that he considers all factors important, is the basket price, by that he means the value of a ton of material going into the extraction process, because it spans the Heavy and Light rare earths spaces. It helps to give people an idea of the OPEX considerations and it gives a “today view of what really the rare earths space is all about.” The concept of ‘basket price’ was introduced to the REO space some 10 years ago in order to identify the distribution of the various rare earths and their values. According to this logic, then, as well as other success factors, Steve believes that Australia’s ‘Northern Minerals’ (ASX: NTU) is a good example. For a number of years they had a good mineralogy (one of the success factors) but lacked the resource quantity. Now, Northern Minerals has sufficient resources, good mineralogy and it is all easy to process, which translates to a low CAPEX, adding to the fact that the results have been very favorable on both the resource and technical sides. Finally, Steve ventures to paint a general picture of the state of the rare earths sector today. He frames it into an interesting natural history framework to make the point that if the “demand side isn’t active; it’s not showing any signs of life, which is disappointing.” Indeed, it is all up to the demand side to get involved before the values of rare earths start to go up again.

DMC STEM Lecture: Radiation in Geological Time & Space
 
55:33
Del Mar College STEM Lecture titled "Radiation and Radioactivity in Geological Time and Space" The natural background of ionizing radiation on Earth varies spatially by two orders of magnitude at present. Claims of risk to organisms from exposure to the upper limits of the natural background range remain unsupported by observed evidence. A broader understanding, beyond just radiometric age-dating, of radioactiviy must become a part of literacy of all of the sciences. Geology is well suited to play a major role in this effort. Retired employee of the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant in Carlsbad, New Mexico, Norbert T. Rempe offered this presentation at Del Mar College. Presented by the Natural Sciences Department. Recorded on January 22, 2016.

It was led by the United States with the support of the United Kingdom and Canada. From 1942 to 1946, the project was under the direction of Major General Leslie Groves of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Nuclear physicist Robert Oppenheimer was the director of the Los Alamos Laboratory that designed the actual bombs. The Army component of the project was designated the Manhattan District; Manhattan gradually superseded the official codename, Development of Substitute Materials, for the entire project. Along the way, the project absorbed its earlier British counterpart, Tube Alloys. The Manhattan Project began modestly in 1939, but grew to employ more than 130,000 people and cost nearly US$2 billion (about $22 billion in 2016 dollars). Over 90% of the cost was for building factories and to produce fissile material, with less than 10% for development and production of the weapons. Research and production took place at more than 30 sites across the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada. Two types of atomic bombs were developed concurrently during the war: a relatively simple gun-type fission weapon and a more complex implosion-type nuclear weapon. The Thin Man gun-type design proved impractical to use with plutonium, and therefore a simpler gun-type called Little Boy was developed that used uranium-235, an isotope that makes up only 0.7 percent of natural uranium. Chemically identical to the most common isotope, uranium-238, and with almost the same mass, it proved difficult to separate the two. Three methods were employed for uranium enrichment: electromagnetic, gaseous and thermal. Most of this work was performed at the Clinton Engineer Works at Oak Ridge, Tennessee. In parallel with the work on uranium was an effort to produce plutonium. After the feasibility of the world's first artificial nuclear reactor was demonstrated in Chicago at the Metallurgical Laboratory, it designed the X-10 Graphite Reactor at Oak Ridge and the production reactors in Hanford, Washington, in which uranium was irradiated and transmuted into plutonium. The plutonium was then chemically separated from the uranium, using the bismuth phosphate process. The Fat Man plutonium implosion-type weapon was developed in a concerted design and development effort by the Los Alamos Laboratory. The project was also charged with gathering intelligence on the German nuclear weapon project. Through Operation Alsos, Manhattan Project personnel served in Europe, sometimes behind enemy lines, where they gathered nuclear materials and documents, and rounded up German scientists. Despite the Manhattan Project's tight security, Soviet atomic spies successfully penetrated the program. The first nuclear device ever detonated was an implosion-type bomb at the Trinity test, conducted at New Mexico's Alamogordo Bombing and Gunnery Range on 16 July 1945. Little Boy and Fat Man bombs were used a month later in the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, respectively. In the immediate postwar years, the Manhattan Project conducted weapons testing at Bikini Atoll as part of Operation Crossroads, developed new weapons, promoted the development of the network of national laboratories, supported medical research into radiology and laid the foundations for the nuclear navy. It maintained control over American atomic weapons research and production until the formation of the United States Atomic Energy Commission in January 1947.

Water and air pollution are the biggest risks to human health from hydraulic fracturing. Research is underway to determine if human health has been affected, and adherence to regulation and safety procedures is required to avoid negative impacts.Hydraulic fracturing fluids include proppants and other substances, which may include toxic chemicals. In the United States, such additives may be treated as trade secrets by companies who use them. Lack of knowledge about specific chemicals has complicated efforts to develop risk management policies and to study health effects. In other jurisdictions, such as the United Kingdom, these chemicals must be made public and their applications are required to be nonhazardous.Water usage by hydraulic fracturing can be a problem in areas that experience water shortage. Surface water may be contaminated through spillage and improperly built and maintained waste pits, in jurisdictions where these are permitted. Further, ground water can be contaminated if fracturing fluids and formation fluids are able to escape during hydraulic fracturing. However, the possibility of groundwater contamination from the fracturing fluid upward migration is negligible, even in a long-term period. Produced water, the water that returns to the surface after hydraulic fracturing, is managed by underground injection, municipal and commercial wastewater treatment, and reuse in future wells. There is potential for methane to leak into ground water and the air, though escape of methane is a bigger problem in older wells than in those built under more recent legislation.Hydraulic fracturing causes induced seismicity called microseismic events or microearthquakes. The magnitude of these events is too small to be detected at the surface, being of magnitude M-3 to M-1 usually. However, fluid disposal wells (which are often used in the USA to dispose of polluted waste from several industries) have been responsible for earthquakes up to 5.6M in Oklahoma and other states.Governments worldwide are developing regulatory frameworks to assess and manage environmental and associated health risks, working under pressure from industry on the one hand, and from anti-fracking groups on the other. In some countries like France a precautionary approach has been favored and hydraulic fracturing has been banned. The United Kingdom's regulatory framework is based on the conclusion that the risks associated with hydraulic fracturing are manageable if carried out under effective regulation and if operational best practices are implemented.

They are called in the vernacular Nuclear Nomads, Bio-Robots, Lumnizers, Glow Boys, Radium Girls, the Fukushima 50, Liquidators, Atomic Gypsies, Gamma Sponges, Nuclear Gypsies, Genpatsu Gypsies, Nuclear Samurai and Jumpers. When they exceed their allowable radiation exposure limit at a specific facility, they often migrate to a different nuclear facility. The industry implicitly accepts this conduct as it can not operate without these practices. The World Nuclear Association states that the transient workforce of "nuclear gypsies" - casual workers employed by subcontractors has been "part of the nuclear scene for at least four decades."Existent labor laws protecting worker's health rights are not always properly enforced. Records are required to be kept, but frequently they are not. Some personnel were not properly trained resulting in their own exposure to toxic amounts of radiation. At several facilities there are ongoing failures to perform required radiological screenings or to implement corrective actions. Many questions regarding these nuclear worker conditions go unanswered, and with the exception of a few whistleblowers, the vast majority of laborers - unseen, underpaid, overworked and exploited, have few incentives to share their stories. The median annual wage for hazardous radioactive materials removal workers, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics is $37,590 in the U.S - $18 per hour. A 15-country collaborative cohort study of cancer risks due to exposure to low-dose ionizing radiation, involving 407,391 nuclear industry workers showed significant increase in cancer mortality. The study evaluated 31 types of cancers, primary and secondary.

Its mission was to design and build the first atomic bombs. Robert Oppenheimer was its first director, from 1943 to December 1945, when he was succeeded by Norris Bradbury.

The wartime laboratory occupied buildings that had once been part of the Los Alamos Ranch School. The development effort initially concentrated on a gun-type fission weapon using plutonium called Thin Man. In April 1944, the Los Alamos Laboratory determined that the rate of spontaneous fission in plutonium bred in a nuclear reactor was too great due to the presence of plutonium-240 and would cause a predetonation, a nuclear chain reaction before the core was fully assembled. Oppenheimer then reorganized the laboratory and orchestrated an all-out and ultimately successful effort on an alternative design proposed by John von Neumann, an implosion-type nuclear weapon, which was called Fat Man. A variant of the gun-type design known as Little Boy was developed using uranium-235. Chemists at the Los Alamos Laboratory developed methods of purifying uranium and plutonium, the latter a metal that only existed in microscopic quantities when Project Y began. Its metallurgists found that plutonium had unexpected properties, but were nonetheless able to cast it into metal spheres. The laboratory built the Water Boiler, an aqueous homogeneous reactor, the third reactor in the world to become operational. It also researched the Super, a hydrogen bomb that would use a fission bomb to ignite a nuclear fusion reaction in deuterium and tritium. The Fat Man design was tested in the Trinity nuclear test in July 1945. Project Y personnel formed pit crews and assembly teams for the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and participated in the bombing as weaponeers and observers. After the war ended, the laboratory supported the Operation Crossroads nuclear tests at Bikini Atoll. A new Z Division was created to control testing, stockpiling and bomb assembly activities, which were concentrated at Sandia Base. The Los Alamos Laboratory became Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory in 1947.

A graduate of the Virginia Military Institute and Harvard Law School, Lansdale was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the United States Army Reserve in 1933. He was called up for active duty in June 1941, and was assigned to the Investigations Branch in the Office of the Assistant Chief of Staff, G-2 (military intelligence) of the War Department General Staff. He became involved with the Manhattan Project in 1942, eventually becoming Brigadier General Leslie Groves's special assistant for security. Lansdale coordinated the activities of the Manhattan Project's field security teams with those of other agencies such as the FBI. In April 1945, Groves sent Lansdale to Europe, where he worked with the Alsos Mission to secure 1,000 tons of uranium ore from the German Wirtschaftliche Forschungsgesellschaft (WiFO) plant in Stassfurt. He also participated in the planning and execution of Operation Harborage, in which a special Allied force went deep behind enemy lines, seized 1.5 tons of uranium ingots, and captured a number of German nuclear energy project scientists, including Carl Friedrich von Weizsäcker, Max von Laue, Karl Wirtz, Horst Korsching and Erich Bagge and Otto Hahn.

It is one of the primary theories on peak oil. Choosing a particular curve determines a point of maximum production based on discovery rates, production rates and cumulative production. Early in the curve (pre-peak), the production rate increases due to the discovery rate and the addition of infrastructure. Late in the curve (post-peak), production declines because of resource depletion. The Hubbert peak theory is based on the observation that the amount of oil under the ground in any region is finite, therefore the rate of discovery which initially increases quickly must reach a maximum and decline. In the US, oil extraction followed the discovery curve after a time lag of 32 to 35 years. The theory is named after American geophysicist M. King Hubbert, who created a method of modeling the production curve given an assumed ultimate recovery volume.
