Estimating phosphorus (P) availability is difficult-particularly in infertile soils such as those exposed after glacial recession-because standard P extraction methods may not mimic biological acquisition pathways. We developed an approach, based on microbial CO2 production kinetics and conserved carbon:phosphorus (C:P) ratios, to estimate the amount of P available for microbial growth in soils and compared this method to traditional, operationally-defined indicators of P availability. Along a primary succession gradient in the High Andes of Perú, P additions stimulated the growth-related (logistic) kinetics of glutamate mineralization in soils that had been deglaciated from 0 to 5years suggesting that microbial growth was limited by soil P availability. We then used a logistic model to estimate the amount of C incorporated into biomass in P-limited soils, allowing us to estimate total microbial P uptake based on a conservative C:P ratio of 28:1 (mass:mass). Using this approach, we estimated that there was <1μg/g of microbial-available P in recently de-glaciated soils in both years of this study. These estimates fell well below estimates of available soil P obtained using traditional extraction procedures. Our results give both theoretical and practical insights into the kinetics of C and P utilization in young soils, as well as show changes in microbial P availability during early stages of soil development. © 2011 Elsevier B.V.

Geomega Resources Inc. ("GéoMégA" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:GMA) announces that it has signed a Conditional Gold Claims Sale Agreement (the "Sale Agreement") with a privately owned corporation, Groupe Ressources Géomines Inc. ("Géomines"). The Sale Agreement concerns all the non-rare earth elements ("non-REE") related assets held by GéoMégA and are comprised of the Anik, Rivière à l'Aigle, McDonald, Gaspard, Comptois, Lac Storm, 3G and Maryse properties. The Sale Agreement will be done in conjunction with the closing of a transaction between Géomines and Black Springs Capital Corp. ("BSC") pursuant to which BSC will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Géomines (the "Acquisition"). Géomines has an exploration portfolio, comprised of the WHN and Boisvert properties located in the Province of Québec (the "Géomines Properties"). The Acquisition will constitute the "Qualifying Transaction" ("QT") of BSC, a "capital pool company", as such terms are defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"). Subject to the Exchange's approval, upon completion of the Acquisition, the combined entity (the "Resulting Issuer") will continue to carry on the business of Géomines as currently constituted. In connection with the closing of the Acquisition, BSC intends on obtaining shareholder approval for a continuance of BSC from the Business Corporations Act (British Colombia) to the Business Corporations Act (Québec) (the "Continuation"), completing a capital restructuring (the "Capital Restructuring"), including the consolidation of its share capital on a basis of two (2) pre-consolidated shares (each a "BSC PreShare") for one (1) post-consolidated share (a "BSC PostShares"), and changing its name to Kintavar Exploration Inc. Upon completion of the Capital Restructuring, BSC's 6,500,000 BSC PreShares and 400,000 options currently outstanding will be consolidated respectively into 3,250,000 BSC PostShares and 200,000 post-consolidation options. Under the terms of the Sale Agreement, an all share transaction, Géoméga will receive a total of 17,857,143 BSC PostShares of the Resulting Issuer at a deemed price of $0.14 per share, a value of $2,500,000 representing the book value of the Non-REE assets as of the date of the closing. Under the terms of the Acquisition, an all share transaction, current Géomines shareholders will receive a total of 10,714,286 BSC PostShares of the Resulting Issuer at a deemed price of $0.14 per share, a value of $1,500,000 representing the book value of the Géomines Properties as of the date of the closing. The total value of the Sale Agreement and the Acquisition is $4,000,000, excluding any shares of Géomines issued as part of the financings described further below. The Acquisition and the Sale Agreement will be carried out by parties dealing at arm's length to one another. GéoMégA intends to distribute to its shareholders, after the closing of the QT, approximately 7,827,464 of the shares received from the sale of its non-REE assets and will hold approximately 19.9% of the issued and outstanding shares of the resulting issuer. After the closing of the Sale Agreement, GéoMégA will retain its core assets, namely the Montviel property, its holdings and assets in Innord Inc. and its holdings of the Resulting Issuer. GéoMégA is expected to be the largest shareholder of the Resulting Issuer, post-QT and closing of the financings. Géomines and BSC will proceed over the following weeks with all the required regulatory filings, approvals and financing initiatives. A finder's fee of 190,476 BSC PostShares shall be paid, subject to the approval of the Exchange, to each of Ansacha Capital Inc., Hexagon Ventures Inc. and Laurentian Bank Securities for being instrumental in introducing the parties. BSC will complete a bridge private placement financing of a minimum of $75,000 and a maximum of $100,000 (the "Bridge Financing"), of BSC PreShares at the subscription price of $0.0525 per share. The closing of the Bridge Financing will not be conditional to the closing of the Acquisition. The Sale Agreement is conditional, as part of the QT, on the closing of a financing of a minimum of $1,400,000 and a maximum of $3,000,000 in Géomines and/or BSC, (the "Concurrent Financing"), resulting in the issuance of a maximum of 21,428,572 BSC PostShares at a deemed price of $0.14 per share (or $0.18 per share issued on a flow-through basis) and 10,714,286 BSC PostShares purchase warrants at a minimum exercise price of $0.18 for a period of 24 months. It is currently contemplated that on completion of the Acquisition, the directors and the officers of the Resulting Issuer will consist of the following persons and up to three additional directors and a Chief Financial Officer to be named by GéoMégA prior to closing: "The signing of the Conditional Gold Claims Sale Agreement is a major step towards having the financial markets recognize the value of GéoMégA's non-REE assets," commented Mr. Kiril Mugerman, President and CEO of GéoMégA. "With the Qualifying Transaction between Géomines and BSC, we believe we will be able to raise sufficient funds to begin a more aggressive exploration program of the assembled properties portfolio and start to realize their full potential. Furthermore, with the exploration and management teams readily available for both GéoMégA and Kintavar, we see many synergies which will lead to both companies being more productive and cost efficient. In addition, with respect to our Montviel REE project and the separation technology being developed by Innord, we have made significant progress over the last 24 months. With successful demonstration of our proprietary hydrometallurgical process for the Montviel mineralization in 2015 and the development of two prototypes by Innord in 2016 with the goal of reaching 1 kg/day throughput, it is now a fitting opportunity to proceed with this transaction to isolate our gold exploration projects and grow their and GéoMégA's shareholder's value." The BSC PreShares are currently halted from trading, and the trading of the shares is expected to remain halted pending completion of the Acquisition. Completion of the Acquisition is subject to a number of conditions including, but not limited to, completion of the Minimum Concurrent Financing, the Continuance and the Capital Restructuring, the satisfaction of BSC, Géomines and GéoMégA in respect of the due diligence investigations to be undertaken by each party, the completion of a definitive agreement in respect of the Acquisition, closing conditions customary to transactions of the nature of the Acquisition, approvals of all regulatory bodies having jurisdiction in connection with the Acquisition, Exchange acceptance and, if required by the Exchange policies, majority of the minority shareholder approval. Where applicable, the Acquisition cannot close until the required shareholder approvals are obtained and there can be no assurance that the Acquisition will be completed as proposed or at all. Upon completion of the Acquisition the Resulting Issuer intends to be listed as a Tier 2 "mining issuer" under the rules of the Exchange. For further information about the transaction between BSC and Géomines, GéoMégA management recommends investors to consult the publicly disseminated press release of BSC from December 9, 2016. The Anik property (approx. 8,500 hectares, 100% owned) is situated 40 km to the south-east of the town of Chapais and 55 km to the south of the town of Chibougamau, in Québec. Located in the Opawica-Guercheville deformation corridor, host to several gold mines and deposits. The eastern portion of the property is located less than 7 km from the Joe Mann mine and the Lac Meston and Phillibert deposits. The western portion of the property is located less than 10 km to the south of the Monster Lake and Fancamp gold projects. In addition, the main gold zones of the Nelligan property, a joint venture between Vanstar Ressources and IAMGOLD, are surrounded to the north, south and east by Anik property boundaries at a distance of less than 1,500 metres. The Rivière-à-l'aigle property (approx. 9,000 hectares, 100% owned) is located in the Lake Windfall area, 55 km to the south of the town of Chapais and 100 km to the east of the town of Lebel-sur-Quévillon. The area has seen an increase in gold exploration over the last several years, primarily by Osisko Mining. The property is characterised by very strong geochemical gold anomalies coinciding with a network of faults and shear zones. The southern border of the property is in contact with the Urban Barry property of Osisko Mining. Other properties in GéoMégA's portfolio (approx. 13,950 hecates, 100% owned) include Maryse, Lac Storm, 3G, Gaspard, Comptois and McDonald which are gold projects with targets based on lithological and geochemical anomalies. Except for Lac Storm, all the properties are located within the northern portion of the geological Abitibi Subprovince, are road accessible and, benefit from other public infrastructure and access to skilled workforce. All the properties are free of royalties. The WHN (approx. 9,056 hectares, 100% owned) and Boisvert (approx. 9,309 hectares, 100% owned) properties are adjacent to each other and are located west of the Mitchinamecus reservoir, 100 km north of the town of Mont-Laurier. The properties cover an area of almost 200 square kilometres accessible by a network of logging and gravel roads. A hydro-electric power substation is located 14 km to the east of the properties. The properties are located in the north-western portion of the central metasedimentary belt of the Grenville geological province. Many gold, copper and silver mineralized showings have been identified on the properties to date, with many characteristics suggesting of Iron Oxide Copper Gold ore type deposit (IOCG). The mineralizing system appears to be a later stage event that has not been subject to the strong deformation forces arising from the Grenville orogeny. Multiple geophysical and geochemical surveys, conducted by Géomines and other companies, confirm the presence of multiple anomalies that have yet to be followed up on with field work. No drilling has been done on the WHN property and only one drilling campaign of 15 drill holes (386 m) was completed in 1971 by Noranda in one small sector of the Boisvert property. Osisko Mining holds a 2% NSR on 39 claims and 1% NSR on 21 other claims of the Boisvert property. The royalty agreement, originally signed between Amixam and Niogold, will carry over with the property. GéoMégA is a mineral exploration and evaluation company focused on the discovery and sustainable development of economic deposits of metals in Québec. GéoMégA is committed to meeting the Canadian mining industry standards and distinguishing itself with innovative engineering, stakeholders' engagement and dedication to local transformation benefits. 78,208,049 common shares of GéoMégA are currently issued and outstanding.

The extent of historical uranium mining impacts is well documented for the North Cave Hills region of Harding County, South Dakota. While previous studies indicate watershed sediment and surface water exhibit up to 90x established background concentrations for arsenic (As) and uranium (U), it was unclear whether or how localized changes in sediment redox behavior influence contaminant remobilization. Five pore-water equilibration samplers (peepers) were spatially and temporally deployed within the study area to evaluate seasonal solid-liquid equilibria as a function of sediment depth. At a sampling site 2 km downstream of the mine site within a wetlands-dominated deposition zone, seasonal variations of pore-water geochemistry were observed. Summer conditions promoted strongly reducing conditions, resulting in the remobilization of sediment-bound As(III). Fall conditions promoted oxidizing conditions within the sediments, resulting in decreased As (5x) and increased U (10x) concentrations within the sediment pore-waters. Peak pore-water U concentrations (781 μg/L) were 3.5x greater than observed within the surface water (226 μg/L) immediately above the sediments. Pore-water As(V) concentrations peaked directly below the sediment-water interface, suggesting As(V) was scavenged and accumulated by strong interactions with surficial iron (hydr)oxides. The study results suggest that localized redox conditions, especially those dominated by (bio)geochemically-influenced iron and sulfur reducing processes, may influence seasonal As and U behavior within these mining impacted alluvium sediments.

The extent of historical U mining impacts is well documented for the North Cave Hills region of Harding County, South Dakota, USA. While previous studies reported watershed sediment and surface water As and U concentrations up to 90× established background concentrations, it was unclear whether or how localized changes in sediment redox behavior may influence contaminant remobilization. Five pore-water equilibration samplers (peepers) were spatially and temporally deployed within the study area to evaluate seasonal solid-liquid As and U distributions as a function of sediment depth. Pore-water and solid phase As and U concentrations, Fe speciation, Eh and pH were measured to ascertain specific geochemical conditions responsible for As and U remobilization and transport behavior. At a mine overburden sedimentation pond adjacent to the mine sites, high total aqueous As and U concentrations (4920 and 674μg/L, respectively) were found within surface water during summer sampling; however pond dredging prior to autumn sampling resulted in significantly lower aqueous As and U concentrations (579 and 108μg/L, respectively); however, both As and U still exceeded regional background concentrations (20 and 18μg/L, respectively). At a wetlands-dominated deposition zone approximately 2km downstream of the sedimentation pond, pore-water geochemical conditions varied seasonally. Summer conditions promoted reducing conditions in pore water, resulting in active release of As(III) to the water column. Autumn conditions promoted oxidizing conditions, decreasing pore-water As (As pw) 5× and increasing U pw 10×. Peak U pore-water concentrations (781μg/L) were 3.5× greater than determined for the surface water (226μg/L), and approximately 40× background concentrations. At the Bowman-Haley reservoir backwaters 45km downstream from the mine sites, As and U pore-water concentrations increased significantly between the summer and autumn deployments, attributed to increased Fe reduction processes. Geochemical modeling suggests solid-phase Fe reduction promotes the liberation of pore-water As and U via suppressing the formation of thioarsenite. Intermittent hydrological processes facilitate As and U transport and deposition throughout the watershed, while biogeochemical-influenced redox changes cycle As and U between pore and surface water within localized environments. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.

Differentiating between mineralized and non-mineralized background groundwater chemistry at a mine site can be challenging if there is an overprint of past and/or current mining on naturally mineralized conditions. At the Phoenix mine in the Copper Canyon mining district of Nevada, quantile-quantile H+/SO4 plots were used to segregate four wells clearly impacted by historical mining activity. The mineralogy of rock at the elevation of the well screen interval was used to partition the 53 remaining wells into mineralized and non-mineralized populations. For each class, groundwater chemistry was examined to identify if SO4 and H+ trends were stable (unimpacted) or increasing (impacted). Then each well was mapped as one of four resulting groundwater types across the mine site, defining the spatial extent of the different groups. Several groundwater regions were identified. A group of mineralized, mine-impacted wells (Type II) are located in Philadelphia Canyon adjacent to the Cu leach facility, with the anthropogenically impacted area bounded by several hydrologically downgradient, mineralized, unimpacted wells (Type I) to the south and east. There is a set of non-mineralized, impacted wells (Type III) downgradient from the tailings pond facility, where a historical release of SO4 is apparent in the well record. However, in some downgradient wells the tailings pond pump-back mitigation system has resulted in recovery of the groundwater quality to a non-mineralized background condition. Finally, in the vicinity of the Reona heap leach pad, there is a group of non-mineralized, unimpacted wells (Type IV). Not surprisingly, most mineralized wells (Types I and II) are located in or near mined areas, while non-mineralized wells (Types III and IV) tend to be in the southern portion of the facility in the alluvia of Buffalo and Reese River valleys. Once the well population was categorized, Phx-F was identified with extremely mineralized background groundwater (pH = 3.8; SO4 = 4600 mg/L; As = 0.056 mg/L; Cu = 72 mg/L; Zn = 61 mg/L), which required further analysis. The elevation of the Phx-F screen interval had up to 5% jarosite, with mineralized fracture zones mapping directly to cavities in the adjacent Iron Canyon mine that originally contained a saturated ferrous sulfate solution, explaining the anomalous chemistry in this well. This study demonstrates that an empirical approach using mining history, deposit geology, hydrogeology, well screen elevation mineralogy, groundwater chemistry trends, statistical analysis, and geochemical modeling provides a technique to distinguish among different classes of groundwater at the operating Phoenix mine site. Such an approach (or a derivative) may prove useful at other mines with different mineralogies and hydrogeologic settings. © 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.


Thallium (Tl) may exceed regulatory limits in mining-influenced water (MIW) associated with processing cadmium, copper, gold, lead, and zinc ores. It is a toxic metal that is soluble over a wide pH range, resulting in both persistence in the environment and poor removal by conventional lime precipitation. This study evaluated the effect of potassium permanganate (KMnO4) at alkaline pH on Tl removal from MIW in batch experiments. The oxidation of Tl+ to Tl3+ by KMnO4 and subsequent Tl removal was explored at Tl concentrations of ≤1 mg/L in synthetic and actual MIW. In addition to Tl, the synthetic MIW contained ≈5 mg/L of Mn, while the actual MIW contained >10 mg/L of Al, Cu, Fe, Mn, and Zn and had a pH ≈ 2.5. Dissolved Tl <2 μg/L in synthetic MIW was achieved at a pH ≈ 9 (CaO addition) and ≥5 mg/L of KMnO4. In the actual MIW, dissolved Tl <2 μg/L was achieved at pH ≈ 9 and ≥12 mg/L of KMnO4. The Tl removal mechanism is complicated due to the presence of reduced Mn in the synthetic MIW and multiple metals in the actual MIW. However, effective Tl removal was achieved by adding KMnO4 to synthetic and actual MIW at alkaline pH. © 2015 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg
