We’re back with a rock-solid episode featuring detailed updates on the wide world of international mining. Lesley sits down with Dr. Nicholas Gardiner, a research fellow at Western Australia’s Curtin University, about a recent paper about the evolution of Earth’s first crust. Meanwhile, Matt digs into Australia-based South 32‘s (ASX: S32) interest in Arizona Mining (TSX: AZ; US-OTC: WLDVF) and its Taylor zinc-lead deposit, and an intriguing looking drill hole from Camino Minerals (TSXV: COR; US-OTC: CAMZF) at its Los Chapitos iron oxide copper gold (IOCG) prospect in southern Peru.

Bonus: Are uranium prices set to rebound based on supply cuts? And Capstone Mining (TSX: CS; US-OTC: CSFFF) announces a three-year extension at its Minto copper operation in the Yukon.
