September 18th, 2014, 10:25 am PDT Lakeland Resources director Steven Khan discusses his experience negotiating joint ventures for Strathmore Minerals and Fission Energy

[Undertaking JV work with Sumitomo and Kepco] was certainly a great experience in negotiating and concluding contracts, and working with them on the joint management committees. That built long-term relationships but also gave me insight into the Asian psyche and some of the issues they have to deal with.


September 10th, 2014, 1:03 pm PDT Association for Mineral Exploration B.C. chairperson David McLelland on the Mount Polley tailings dam breach

This particular incident is not solely a government, first nation, environmentalist, industry or company-centric problem. This is a shared human dilemma that I know we can improve…


September 3rd, 2014, 2:43 pm PDT Dahrouge Geological Consulting president Jody Dahrouge considers the potential of Prima Diamond’s Munn Lake project in the NWT’s Lac de Gras region

So the fact that you have boulders on surface coupled with these indicators, plus known kimberlites, means you’re very close to a source. Our compilation of historic data suggests at least four more sources.


August 20th, 2014, 12:09 pm PDT Canadian Rare Earth Elements Network chairperson Ian London explains his organization’s role in connecting REE experts

I’m amazed at the number of individuals working on rare earths-related process technologies or applications at different universities that nobody knows about. There’s a scientist here, or an engineer there, who’s working on a PhD and is moving forward. But there was no forum for them to get together.


August 8th, 2014, 9:27 am PDT Lakeland Resources president/CEO Jonathan Armes remarks on his company’s Saskatchewan uranium exploration

They’re compiling all the historic data and reinterpreting it in view of what we know today. It’s an interesting dynamic to see the guys, old and young, bantering about. It brings new ideas on how to approach things.


July 31st, 2014, 11:49 am PDT Arctic Star VP of exploration Buddy Doyle points to new advances that increase the odds of diamond discovery

The targets we have now are gravity-based. This is a fairly new technology that was exclusive to BHP before they sold it. It’s got better and better and better. I used it 10 years ago and didn’t like it but now it’s really good.


July 21st, 2014, 2:22 pm PDT Diamond Bourse of Canada president David Gavin comments on this country’s reputation as an ethical producer of high-quality gems

There’s a chain of custody that’s very transparent from extraction to marketplace. Not just with diamonds but in general with any product, people want to know there’s social responsibility in how these goods are procured. It’s very easy to track Canadian diamonds from mine to market.


July 15th, 2014, 10:48 am PDT Lakeland Resources corporate communications manager Roger Leschuk discusses his company’s growing portfolio of uranium properties

We’re well-financed, we have more cash than we had a year ago and we intend to continue advancing our projects and looking for good partners. We have a busy summer ahead with more news coming.
