The U.S. Ambassador to China, Jon Huntsman expressed disappointment on Friday, after the High Court in Beijing rejected an appeal to release American geologist Xue Feng. Xue, born in China, is a naturalized U.S. citizen. He's been detained in China since November 2007 over the acquisition and sale of an oil industry database. Last July, he was sentenced to eight years in prison for trafficking state secrets. Then the U.S. State Department started calling on the Chinese regime to release him. [Jon Huntsman, U.S. Ambassador to China]: "I'm extremely disappointed in the outcome, although it wasn't completely unexpected. The original sentence was upheld, that of eight years in prison and a 200,000 RMB (Renminbi) fine. This has been a long, difficult and painful, painful ordeal for Xue Feng, but not only for Xue but also for his wife Nan and his two kids, Rachel and Alex. We have remained in regular contact with his family." Xue had negotiated the sale of an oil industry database to his then employer— the Colorado-based consultancy IHS Inc. He says the database was only classified as a state secret after the sale had gone through. Supporters of Xue maintain that he didn't commit a crime—that his actions never warranted a conviction under the Chinese regime's vague state secret laws. [Jon Huntsman, U.S. Ambassador to China]: "We ask the Chinese government to consider an immediate humanitarian release of Xue Feng, thereby allowing him to get back to his family and his way of life. He is a U.S. citizen and we take this case very, very seriously as we have over the last couple of years." Both Huntsman and the Obama administration have repeatedly pushed for Xue's release.

Born in China and a naturalized U.S. citizen, Xue Feng appealed his eight year sentence in Beijing on Tuesday, without the presence of U.S. embassy officials. [Robert Goldberg, United States Embassy Deputy Chief of Mission]: "We made a formal request to attend Dr. Xue's appeal hearing, and provide him consular support consistent with the 1980 U.S. - China consular convention. The Beijing High People's Court denied this request, and they denied it without explanation. We have filed a formal protest with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and await its reply." Xue Feng was arrested in 2007. He was working for a U.S. based energy consulting firm. The Chinese regime says he violated state secrets laws over the sale of a database on China's oil industry. That database, according to Xue, was public information at the time, and was only classified as state-secrets after he had bought it. Xue was convicted in July this year, and given an eight year sentence. His appeal on Tuesday ended without a judgment. Outside the appeal court, Senior U.S. Embassy official Robert Goldberg said the Chinese regime has not handled Xue's case transparently. Goldberg is calling for Xue's immediate release. [Robert Goldberg, United States Embassy Deputy Chief of Mission]: "We urge the High Court and the Chinese government to ensure fairness and transparency in the process of Dr. Xue's appeal. Dr. Xue has already served over three years in detention. We urge the Chinese to grant Dr. Xue humanitarian release and immediate deportation so that he can return home to the U.S. and reunite with his family." The Chinese regime is known for its vague state secrets laws. Rights activists say it's often used to silence critics of the regime.

In November 2010, Museum Curator George E. Harlow embarked on a Constantine S. Niarchos Expedition to the Montagua Valley in central Guatemala, a fault zone rich in the precious mineral, jadeite jade. Dr. Harlow and his team of geologists hiked along riverbeds and steep outcrops, collecting rock samples that might provide clues to the evolution of the Caribbean region. The Caribbean originated 120 million years ago, when areas of volcanic islands and ocean floor squeezed past Mexico and South America. In what's known as the Guatemala suture zone, the boundary between the North American and Caribbean tectonic plates, geologists have found remnants of both a plate collision and a subduction zone, where an oceanic plate plunged into Earth's mantle. The high pressures of subduction zones help form minerals like jadeite and its host rock, serpentinite. By following the trail of jade in this region, Dr. Harlow and his team are gaining an understanding of the subduction and collisions that occurred throughout the history of Caribbean plate tectonics. During the expedition, the team studied an ophiolite--a piece of sea floor crust emplaced on top of the continent that had not previously been recorded on geological maps. Back at the Museum, Dr. Harlow's team, including Dr. Kennet Flores, a Davis Postdoctoral Scholar in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, is conducting geochemical studies of the rock samples gathered during the expedition. Dr. Harlow anticipates that the results will provide insight into the geological puzzle of Guatemala and open windows for research in other parts of the world. George Harlow's Constantine S. Niarchos Expedition was generously supported by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. The research described in this video has been supported in part by the National Science Foundation (NSF) under grant numbers EAR0309116 and EAR1119403.

But that’s what brought Rice marine geologist André Droxler and his team of researchers to a rare land-based expedition. “I never thought on land you could discover something,” he said. “To discover something in the middle of Texas, it’s pretty exciting.” According to Droxler, the Eagle Ridge Ranch located in Mason County near Fredericksburg has some of the best outcrops in the world containing fossilized prehistoric bacteria and microbes. He believes these microbial reefs contained the first forms of life on Earth. Droxler’s team was granted access to the land after working with Woodlands resident Donald Shepard and his wife, Rose, who own the ranch. The professor of Earth science also secured funding from four major oil companies that had interest in the research on microbial reefs. Since 2012 the Rice professor and graduate students have made many trips to Mason County, drilled more than 150 core samples and virtually mapped the area using a drone. Droxler said the three summers here “have been some of the happiest summers I have had in my life,” and he returns with the same excitement as the first time he paddled down the Llano River in search of half-billion-year-old “time capsules.”

It is a volcanological wonderland. The western margin of North America has long been dominated by subduction and dextral transtension. This animation attempts to simplify a complex tectonic interaction through cross sections. This animation was created to accompany a Plenary talk at the 2017 IAVCEI meeting in Portland, OR.

The Homestake Mine was a deep underground gold mine located in Lead, South Dakota. Until it closed in 2002 it was the largest and deepest gold mine in North America. The mine produced more than 40 million troy ounces (approximately 1.25 million kilograms) of gold during its lifetime. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * History of the Homestake Mine: The Homestake deposit was discovered by Fred and Moses Manuel, Alex Engh and Hank Harney in April 1876, during the Black Hills Gold Rush. A trio of mining entrepreneurs, George Hearst, Lloyd Tevis, and James Ben Ali Haggin, bought it from them for $70,000 the following year. George Hearst arrived at the mine in October 1877, and took active control of the property. Hearst had to haul in all the mining equipment by wagons from the nearest railhead in Sidney, Nebraska. Arthur De Wint Foote worked as an engineer. Despite the remote location, an 80-stamp mill began crushing Homestake ore in July 1878. The partners sold shares in the Homestake Mining Company, and listed it on the New York Stock Exchange in 1879. The Homestake would become one of the longest-listed stocks in the history of the NYSE (Con Edison's original name was New York Gas Light and was listed in 1824). Hearst consolidated and enlarged the Homestake property by fair and foul means. He bought out some adjacent claims, and secured others in the courts. By the time Hearst left the Black Hills in March 1879, he had added the claims of Giant, Golden Star, Netty, May Booth, Golden Star No. 2, Crown Point, Sunrise, and General Ellison to the original two claims of the Manuel Brothers, Golden Terra and Old Abe, totaling 30 acres. The ten-stamp mill had become 200, and 500 employees worked in the mine, mills, offices and shops. He owned the Boulder Ditch and water rights to Whitewood Creek, monopolizing the region. His railroad, Black Hills & Fort Pierre Railroad, gave him access to eastern Dakota territory. By 1900, the Homestake owned 300 claims, on 2000 acres, and was worked by more than 2000 employees. In 1901, the mine started using compressed air locomotives, replacing the mules and horses by the 1920s. Charles Washington Merrill introduced cyanidization to augment mercury-amalgamation for gold recovery. "Cyanide Charlie" finally achieved 94 per cent recovery. The gold was shipped to the Denver Mint. By 1906, the Ellison Shaft reached 1,550 feet, the B&M 1,250 feet, the Golden Star 1,100 feet, and the Golden Prospect 900 feet, producing 1,500,000 tons of ore. A disastrous fire struck on 25 March 1907, which took forty days to extinguish after the mine was flooded. Another disastrous fire struck in 1919. In 1927, company geologist Donald H. McLaughlin used a winze from the 2,000 level to demonstrate ore reached the 3,500 foot level. The Ross shaft was started in 1934, a second winze from the 3,500 foot level reached 4,100 feet, and a third winze from 4,100 feet was started in 1937. The Yates shaft was started in 1938. Production ceased from 1943 until 1945, due to Limitation Order L-208 from the Government. By 1975, mining operations has reached the 6,800 foot level, and two winzes were planned to 8,000 feet.
