Continuing a series of publications on issues of sustainability for US/Canada and globally, the June issue of EEGS Technical Magazine FastTIMES, Vol 23, 2 is a Special Issue on Mine-Site and Mining Geophysics, with many additional new regular columns, including a Mining Geophysics News regular column to continue engagement with the mining sector.
The Special Issue is freely available for download in high and low resolution versions, from http://www.eegs.org/latest-issue.

In the Mining Geophysics News column, it is highlighted that the mining sector, through post-exploration, mine site geophysics applications provides by far the widest range of geophysical applications of any sector that NSG methods are applied to, but generally receives little attention on the NSG literature.

The June FastTIMES and ongoing Mining Geophysics News column is an attempt to redress this situation and to raise awareness among mining engineer and geoscience personnel, as well as practising geophysicists, of the applications, benefits and limitations of near-surface geophysical (NSG) methods in assisting responsible and efficient mining operations. NSG methods can assist with and provide enhanced value in ore recovery optimisation, groundwater, geological, geotechnical, mine waste, environmental and risk reduction investigations, operations and management within and around a mine site.

Ten technical articles on mine site and mining geophysics, covering the life-of-mine cycle from post exploration through to post mine-closure are featured. The June Issue is being publicised with many mining sector Professional Societies (e.g. PDAC, CIM, IMWA, ASMR) to help achieve as wide notification, distribution and awareness raising of NSG methods among mining sector professionals. Further engagement with other mining Societies is in progress to extend this outreach.

The June FastTIMES has also increased outreach to a range of sectors that use near-surface geophysics by extending the range of Regular Columns to cover in addition to Mining Geophysics News, groundwater (Hydrogeophysics News), Infrastructure and Geotechnical Geophysics News, Agricultural Geophysics News , UXO Geophysics Community News, Archaeological and Forensic Geophysics News (plus an additional article on archaeological geophysics) as well as General Industry News and Drone Geophysics News. A new EEGS Student Chapter News Column is an additional feature for EEGS many student members.

There is the regular notification going out to other key groundwater, geotechnical and environmental sector Societies and through these Societies, their members.

For upcoming FastTIMES editions if you have a near surface geophysics related news item, a story to tell or a case example and would like it to reach a wider audience than NSG geophysicist practitioners, please contact FastTIMES Editor, Geoff Pettifer ([email protected]).
