TI: 10:05:01 The memorial service took place on Thursday (6/6) for Colin Spence, the Canadian geologist killed in a shooting attack on a helicopter in the Philippines. The first secretary at the Canadian Embassy, David Gauthier, said arrangements were being made for the return of Spence's body and investigations were underway. SHOWS: MANILA, PHILIPPINES 6/6 Director of the Bureau of Mines, Horacio Ramos SOT (ENGLISH): There are two possibilities as they claim..a deranged individual and perhaps perpetrated by the FPA (New People's Army). Which is not considered as unlikely by the company themselves because they feel it is an individual who did it. And it is also a known fact that the boundaries are infiltrated by the New People's Army. WS of Loyola memorial chapel where remains are being kept before going to Canada Security Sealed casket containing remains at memorial chapel More of casket Exterior of the Canadian embassy Interior of embassy SOT David Gauthier, First Secretary and Consul, saying in ENGLISH, "We were advised by the police that a Canadian citizen was shot from the ground while travelling in a helicopter. Police say three shots were fired and are still investigating the incident. There is not much we can say in terms of what happened. The body has been shipped to Manila and we are hoping the family will escort it back to Canada.

A renowned geologist proves that global warming is more detrimental for humanity, than Earth itself, who will last well beyond humans existence Christian Schlüchter graduated in Geology from University of Bern. After a Postdoctoral year at Brock University, Ontario, Canada, he was at The Institute of Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering, ETH Zurich, where he submitted his Habilitation in Engineering Geology. In 1993 he was elected to the chair of Quaternary and Environmental Geology at University of Bern. His main professional activities are in fundamental and applied glacial geology. Christian has done extensive fieldwork in the Alps and on all the continents, including 8 expeditions to Antarctica. As a result, a number of his papers have been published in peer reviewed journals. For many years, Christian has been actively engaged in the International Union for Quaternary Research (INQUA) for which he organised the International Congress in 2011 in Bern. Christian Schlüchter is Emeritus Professor of University of Bern and a consultant to the Swiss Government. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

This week we explore Canada following Lesley's country-wide review of geological camps. We dig into emerging exploration techniques and jursidictions, while Lesley talks about some of the insights she's picked up along the way, and what emerging Canadian geological stories have caught her interest. We discuss Barkerville Gold Mines' (TSXV: BGM) exploration efforts in British Columbia, Osisko Mining’s (TSX: OSK) aggressive drilling at its Windfall Lake project 200 km northeast of Val-d'Or, Quebec, and discovery upside in the Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut. Meanwhile, Matt sits down with Trevali Mining (TSX: TV) president and CEO, Dr. Mark Cruise, to chat about the company's transformational, $400-million deal with super major Glencore (LON: GLEN). We cover the growing partnership between the two companies, Cruise's thoughts on operating in Africa, and the state of zinc markets.

Tourist from all over the world travel to these amazing destinations to see the strange but beautiful rock formations nature has made. Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr #10 Salt Piles at Salar de Uyuni Salar de Uyuni, the world’s largest salt flat, is one of the most distinct natural landmarks in the world. The immense plains of salt are viewable from space and are a huge attraction for tourists and photographers. After rainfall, the plains turn into an enormous reflective mirror that creates a surreal landscape. The piles of salt ready for harvest only add to the uncanny imagery. # 9 Giant’s Causeway The Giant’s Causeway is a huge oceanside area in Northern Ireland comprised of giant interlocking columns of basalt rock. Most of the columns are hexagonal in shape and perfectly fit together creating a surreal almost game-like environment. Scientifically speaking the columns were created by an ancient volcanic explosion, but it gains its name from the popular legend that the cliffs were built as a causeway by a giant in ancient times. # 8 Balance Rock In the Garden of Gods in Colorado Springs there are a plethora of beautiful red rock formations, but possibly the most iconic of these rocks is Balance Rock - a huge boulder that seems like it could fall over at any moment. It is destined to fall over eventually when erosion or another damage dislodges it from its gripping points. Go and see Balance Rock before it falls over and becomes just a normal rock. # 7 Balancing Rock, Canada There is another precarious rock, but this seems to be even more impossible. The Balancing Rock in Nova Scotia is believed to be standing for thousands of years. It’s about 30 feet tall and seems to be just standing straight up out of pure will. # 6 Fly Geyser This erupting rock is Fly Geyser, an accidental man-made geothermal geyser in Washoe County. The fountain was created in 1964 when people were exploring sources of geothermal energy and accidentally drilled into a well. The well was never capped properly and has now become a geyser that shoots water into the air, creating the ever growing rock formation around it. It looks like a weird alien structure because of thermophilic algae that thrive in the high temperatures Fly Geyser generates. # 5 Split Apple Rock Tokangawhā, aka Split Apple Rock, is a geological rock formation off the coast of South Island of New Zealand. It is a structure made of granite and looks almost like it was deliberately cut in half. This cleft was natural, though, with no help from any humans. What exactly could have cut this boulder in half is a mystery although theories include water creeping into the rock, freezing, and expanding to break the rock. It’s a popular spot for tourists to take the exact same photo every year. # 4 Moeraki Boulders The Moeraki Boulders are unusually large and spherical boulders that are spread along Koekohe Beach on the Otago coast of New Zealand. Local Maori legends explain the boulders as the remains of eel baskets from the large sailing canoe that brought Maori people to the island hundreds of years ago. These stones are usually hollow but sometimes they are filled with calcite and quartz, which makes it look very interesting when they are broken open or exposed. # 3 Folding Rocks at Agia Pavlos These interesting looking rocks are known commonly as the Folding Rocks. They are sedimentary limestone layers were once layered horizontally at the bottom of the sea, but tectonic plates pushed them together and forced them upwards. # 2 Torghatten Torghatten is a granite mountain on Torget island in Norway. As far as mountains go it looks pretty uncharacteristic and lumpy except for the giant gaping hole right in the middle of it. According to legend, the mountain hole was made by a troll who was chasing a beautiful girl. Knowing he could never catch the girl he shot an arrow at her, but the Troll King threw his hat to save her and that hat turned into the mountain. Sounds pretty legit to me. # 1 Abandoned Russian Salt Mine This abandoned Russian Salt Mine looks more like a scene from a trippy art house movie. The naturally occurring minerals in the abandoned mine create psychedelic patterns and structures which create unique swirls. While the naturally occurring art in these walls are beautiful, exploring the mines are not without danger. There are hazards of falling, landslides, and low visibility, but it might be worth facing to see this one of a kind place.

Matt and Lesley sit down over coffee to discuss the geology of the Northwest Territories and Nunavut! We dig into northern exploration plays, including: Nighthawk Gold’s (TSXV: NHK; US-OTC: MIMZF) Colomac deposit; Auryn Resources' (TSXV: AUG) Committee Bay project; Peregrine Diamonds (TSX: PGD) Chidliak project on Baffin Island; Agnico Eagle Mines' (TSX: AEM; NYSE: AEM) recent Amaruq discovery near its Meadowbank gold mine; and Sabina Gold and Silver’s (TSX: SBB; US-OTC: SGSVF) Back River gold property. Lesley explains what she's uncovered during her foray into northern Canadian geology, and breaks down the science behind greenstone gold belts and kimerlite pipes. Meanwhile, Matt rounds up some global issues, including the impending U.S. interest rate hike, China's economic health, and ongoing labour disputes at major copper operations!
