Belmont Receives 3DIP Survey Results on A-J Lode Gold Project, Greenwood Mining Camp, Southern British Columbia.

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / November 12, 2020 / Belmont Resources Ltd. (TSXV:BEA)(FRA:L3L2) is pleased to report that it has received results from SJ Geophysic’s 3DIP survey on the Athelstan-Jackpot (A-J) gold project in the prolific Greenwood mining district of southern British Columbia.

The 3DIP data is currently being reviewed by Belmont’s consulting geophysicist Sergio Espenoza, PhD. along with consulting geologist Linda Caron, M.Sc., P.Eng.

The IP results are being correlated with detailed geological mapping on the property and the recently completed drone magnetic survey and will identify and prioritize drill targets. Belmont is currently awaiting approval of a 5 year work program permit application which will enable it to proceed with drilling scheduled for year-end or early 2021.

3DIP results are expected to be announced early next week.

The 3DIP survey covered primarily two mineralized gold zones.

Hubble launches large ultraviolet-light survey of nearby stars

Hubble launches large ultraviolet-light survey of nearby stars
This is a ground-based telescopic photo of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), a satellite galaxy of our Milky Way. The galaxy is one of several select targets of a new initiative with NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope called ULLYSES (UV Legacy Library of Young Stars as Essential Standards). The program is looking at over 300 stars to build an ultraviolet-light catalog for capturing the diversity of stars, from young to old. The program’s goal is to give astronomers a much better understanding of the birth of stars and how this relates to everything from planets to the formation and evolution of galaxies. The LMC contains hot, massive, blue stars, similar to the primitive composition of early galaxies, so astronomers can gain insights into how their outflows may have influenced early galaxy evolution billions of years ago. The target stars are from Hubble archival observations (yellow circles) and new observations (blue circles)

How many alien civilizations are out there? A new galactic survey holds a clue.

Here’s a good sign for alien hunters: More than 300 million worlds with similar conditions to Earth are scattered throughout the Milky Way galaxy. A new analysis concludes that roughly half of the galaxy’s sunlike stars host rocky worlds in habitable zones where liquid water could pool or flow over the planets’ surfaces.

“This is the science result we’ve all been waiting for,” says Natalie Batalha, an astronomer with the University of California, Santa Cruz, who worked on the new study.

The finding, which has been accepted for publication in the Astronomical Journal, pins down a crucial number in the Drake Equation. Devised by my father Frank Drake in 1961, the equation sets up a framework for calculating the number of detectable civilizations in the Milky Way. Now the first few variables in the formula—including the rate of sunlike star formation, the fraction of those stars with planets, and

First light on a next-gen astronomical survey toward a new understanding of the cosmos

First light on a next-gen astronomical survey toward a new understanding of the cosmos
The Sloan Digital Sky Survey’s fifth generation made its first observations earlier this month. This image shows a sampling of data from those first SDSS-V data. The central sky image is a single field of SDSS-V observations. The purple circle indicates the telescope’s field-of-view on the sky, with the full Moon shown as a size comparison. SDSS-V simultaneously observes 500 targets at a time within a circle of this size. The left panel shows the optical-light spectrum of a quasar–a supermassive black hole at the center of a distant galaxy, which is surrounded by a disk of hot, glowing gas. The purple blob is an SDSS image of the light from this disk, which in this dataset spans about 1 arcsecond on the sky, or the width of a human hair as seen from about 21 meters (63 feet) away.

New survey reveals state-level opinions on climate change

North and South, rural and urban—the United States is a complex mix of cultures, mindsets, and life experiences. And, as a new report by researchers at Stanford University, Resources for the Future, and ReconMR illustrates, those state-by-state differences affect climate attitudes and opinions.


The report is the latest installment of Climate Insights 2020, a seven-part series that reveals American beliefs, attitudes, and opinions on climate change and mitigation policies. The latest installment combines data from 27,661 respondents into a single dataset, then separates those data by state. Through this unique formulation, the report reveals state and regional opinions on climate change and their potential impacts on voting just days ahead of the presidential election.

As well as assessing where each state stands on a variety of climate-related issues, the report explains variation between states using indicators ranging from state-level politics to typical temperatures to residential

Survey shows faculty providing high-quality education, despite COVID challenges – UB Now: News and views for UB faculty and staff

It’s clearly been a formidable task for UB to transform from traditional in-person learning to a hybrid model during these times of COVID-19. But results of an early survey of UB students indicates that despite these challenges, UB students are continuing to receive a world-class education.

The survey, distributed by the Office of Academic Affairs to all UB undergraduate, graduate and professional students three weeks into the semester, found that the majority of UB students who completed the survey were very satisfied with their learning experiences. The results were positive for both undergraduate and graduate students, and across all modes of instruction, notes Graham Hammill, vice provost for academic affairs and dean of the Graduate School.

Results from the 5,336 students who completed the survey show:

  • 65.8% of respondents were very satisfied with their available study space.
  • 79.3% were very satisfied with their computer or other device.
  • 66.9% were very

Education Department survey shows sex assault reports at schools on rise

Reports of sexual assaults at primary and secondary public schools across the U.S. jumped by 55% in 2017-2018 from the previous two years, according to new Education Department data.

The increase in the department’s latest Civil Rights Data Collection survey “may reflect under-reporting in 2015-16, an increased sensitivity to this issue in 2017-2018, or an actual increase in incidents of sexual violence from 2015-16 to 2017-18,” the Office of Civil Rights said in a news release.

The biennial survey, which collects data from more than 17,000 public school districts comprising 50 million students, documented 14,152 reports of sexual assault during the 2017-2018 school year. Two years earlier, the same survey reported fewer than 9,500 such incidents.

Officials in the Office of Civil Rights say schools received 15 times more complaints of sexual harassment in 2019 than a decade earlier.

The numbers, while alarming, are not surprising to federal officials who
