Thacker Pass location and mineral resource model compared to the boundary of the 2018 resource model
Tuesday, October 12, 2021 1:00 AM
Lithium Americas Corp. has expanded its anticipated resource at Thacker Pass and increased phase one capacity to 40,000 tons per annum (TPA) lithium carbonate for the proposed project north of Winnemucca in the McDermitt Caldera in Humboldt County. 
The phase one capacity target increased from 30,000-35,000 tpa to reflect an optimized mine plan and leaching efficiencies without changing the proposed sulfuric acid plan or water usage amounts. 
  • Unexpected Connections
    Wednesday, October 13, 2021 1:00 AM
    Have you ever driven down a road you have driven down a million times before and then one day you recognize something new? 
    Then you find yourself asking, “has that always been there?”  You ask your car mate, and they reply, “yup, you’ve never noticed that before?”  
    You scratch your head and wonder how have you missed it all this time?  The next time you are on the road, there it is, it has entered your awareness and once you see it you cannot unsee it, your awareness has been forever changed.  
  • Independent Poll: Non-major party voters place Sisolak behind Lombardo, neck-and-neck with Heller
    Wednesday, October 13, 2021 1:00 AM
    As the number of people registered with non-major parties outpaces those registering as either a Democrat or Republican, a new poll released Sunday by The Nevada Independent indicates the leanings of independent voters who will play a major role in determining the outcomes of tight gubernatorial and U.S. Senate races.
    Non-major party voters who were polled leaned slightly more Republican than Democrat, with 41.5 percent indicating they would be more likely to vote GOP in the November 2022 election compared with 38.1 percent more likely to vote for a Democrat.
    In match-ups between Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak and the two GOP gubernatorial frontrunners —  former U.S. Sen. Dean Heller and Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo — non-major party voters placed the governor even with Heller (42.3 percent to 42.1 percent) and about 5 points behind Lombardo (39.6 percent to 44.7 percent).

  • Fire tornado prediction tools to be developed for public safety during extreme wildfires
    Tuesday, October 12, 2021 1:00 AM
    With massive wildfires plaguing the western United States, scientists have been tracking an increase in dangerous wildfire-generated extremes, including fire-generated thunderstorms and tornados embedded in wildfire plumes that can reach up to a mile high. 
    University of Nevada, Reno and DRI researchers are building the predictive and diagnostic tools that will transform the understanding of fire-generated extreme weather and pave the way for future life-saving warnings to firefighters and the general public.
  • Watch Out for Pinkeye
    Tuesday, October 12, 2021 1:00 AM
    I had a rancher stop in my office the other day, and he said some of his cows were getting “Pinkeye”. Infectious Bovine Keratoconjunctivitis (IBK) or “Pinkeye” is a costly and exasperating disease for the cattle producer and industry.
    A field trial published in 2009 found an average weaning weight difference of 18 pounds less (range 9-27 lbs.) in calves that experienced pinkeye versus those that did not. Calves with corneal scars are often discounted at sale, further increasing the economic cost to producers. 
    A recent study found continued impact in the beef industry from pinkeye on production traits. Yearlings that had pinkeye as young calves pre-weaning had less 12th rib fat depth, ribeye area, and body weight than did yearlings without evidence of pinkeye. Despite the well-known economic impact of disease, adequate and timely treatment of cases is challenging because cattle are grazed far away from facilities during peak occurrence in summer months.

    A little planning and prepping during the fall can really improve your spring season. 
    Autumn is the time to get ready and manage the soils, prepare sod, clean up your raised beds, and minimize the problems in the new growing season. 
    It’s also the time to plant bulbs that bloom in spring and pull out tender summer bloomers. 
    Fall garden preparation is key, and one of those maintenance tasks that will help you guarantee a beautiful garden during the following season. Follow these fall garden tips for a worry-free winter and to have more free time in spring.
    Fall is also, a time to reflect on the severity of diseases observed this past year and remember that most fungi survive winter within infected plant debris. 
  • Caldor wildfire smoke impact study underway on Lake Tahoe’s health
    Tuesday, October 5, 2021 1:00 AM
    As flames from the Caldor Fire swept up and over the summit of the Sierra Nevada, long-time Lake Tahoe researcher Sudeep Chandra from the University of Nevada, Reno assembled a team of scientists for a rapid response to gather samples of smoke and ash that could harm the fabled lake’s ecology and clarity.
    “With this rapid response research, we’re pushing the boundaries of science to learn about wildfire impacts, help inform critical fire recovery decisions and create a model that can be used in other places facing threats from extreme wildfire,” Darcie Goodman Collins, CEO of the League to Save Lake Tahoe, one of the organizations funding the research, said.
    The Tamarack, Caldor, and Dixie fires burning near the Lake Tahoe basin have been impacting the air quality for weeks to months in the summer of 2021, and impacts may continue into the fall.
