Calls for a Mars research station to be built in outback South Australia at Arkaroola

  Calls for a Mars research station to be built in outback South Australia at Arkaroola A simulated Red Planet site in remote South Australia would replicate a future Mars community — complete with a fake rocket ship, laboratories, rovers and scientists in spacesuits.Mars Society Australia has renewed its push for a Mars research station simulation to be built in the Arkaroola Wilderness Sanctuary, in outback South Australia.

Quiet achiever Vango Mining had a fantastic 2018. 2019 hasn’t been as kind on the share price (so far), yet exceptional results from the Marymia gold project continue to flow.

In April, Vango (ASX:VAN) released a resource upgrade for its Trident deposit – 410,000oz grading 8 grams per tonne (g/t) — which it called the “first major milestone” to becoming a producer.

To put that in perspective, a mineable deposit above 5g/t can be considered high grade.

The Mars Exploration Program is a science-driven program that seeks to understand whether Mars was, is, or can be, a habitable world. To find out, we need to understand how geologic, climatic, and other processes have worked to shape Mars and its environment over time

But the company maintains the overall size and scale of the high-grade Marymia project in the Mid-West region of WA is a long way from being fully realised.

“The fact that the Trident resource was confirmed from drilling of just 20 per cent of the current known 5km strike‐length of the Trident‐Marwest‐Mareast Gold Corridor, that it remains open at depth, and that it represents just one of at least six key gold mineralised corridors within the project area, indicates that we are really only just scratching the surface of what is potentially a world‐class, large‐scale, high‐grade gold mining operation,” exec chairman Bruce McInnes told investors in October.

Curiosity Finds Mysterious Oxygen Fluctuations on Mars

  Curiosity Finds Mysterious Oxygen Fluctuations on Mars NASA’s Curiosity rover sniffed out an unexpected seasonal variation to the oxygen on Mars, according to new research. Curiosity has long been returning some appropriately curious results. After locating methane on the planet, studies from its spot in Gale crater found regular changes to the methane unexplainable by the environmental factors that scientists are already aware of. Now varying oxygen has joined methane in the Martian mysteries bucket.

Reaching Mars is a hard and unforgiving endeavor, with little room for error. More than two-thirds of the 40-odd missions launched toward Mars have been lost due to failed components, rocket glitches or grievous errors that sent probes crashing into the Martian surface or missing the planet altogether.

Today the explorer announced new shallow, high-grade, gold intersections from drilling at the Mars prospect at the north-eastern end of the 2km Trident-Marwest zone.

Results included 15m at 4.15g/t gold from 34m – thick, high-grade intersections from shallow depths which tick all the boxes and further highlight the project’s resource expansion potential.

Vango says the new gold intersections at Mars remain ‘open’ to the southwest “where the zone may link with the Marwest deposit and/or extend below Marwest to connect with the Trident resource, 2km to the southwest”.

The company plans to confirm new open-pit resource estimates for Mars and Mareast (where the explorer recently hit grades like 10m at 22.6g/t from 50m), two deposits that offer potential for early high-grade open-pit production in any future mining operation.

Scientists Discover 'Ice Fossils' in a 4.6 Billion-Year-Old Meteorite Shard .
A meteorite found in the Algerian desert in 1990 is yielding new clues about the formation of the Solar System. We don't know when Acfer 094 fell to Earth, but we know how old it is. Previous analyses suggest the ancient rock fragment is around 4.6 billion years old - roughly the same age as the Solar System. The new research suggests it came from farther out in the system before making its way to our blue marble.
