We’re talking B.C. politics and the provincial mining industry with Mining Association of British Columbia (MABC) president and CEO Bryan Cox. Matt sits down to chat with Bryan about the incoming NDP-Green coalition government in B.C. and what that might mean for the mining business. We dig into regulatory framework, the need for better communication initiatives in the industry, and recent overtures from the federal Liberals on potential reforms to Canada’s environmental-assessment (EA) process.
Welcome to the “technology special”, where we discuss emergence of electric vehicles, lithium-ion batteries, and renewable energies from a hard-rock mining perspective! Our senior staff writer Trish Saywell joins the show from Toronto to talk about her recent research into the cobalt industry, including Robert Friedland’s Clean Teq Holdings (ASX: CLQ), as well as the potential merger between First Cobalt (TSXV: FCC; US-OTC: FTSSF), Cobalt One (ASX: CO1) and CobalTech Mining (TSXV: CSK).
There’s plenty to talk about on this week’s Northern Miner podcast as Matt swings by the International Metal Writers Conference in Vancouver to catch-up with some of our favourite newsletter analysts and companies. First, we sit down with the Mercenary Geologist, Mickey Fulp, to catch up on junior mining markets. Mickey digs into exploration innovation, the state of copper markets, and unveils his new red-metal pick: Trilogy Metals (TSX: TMQ; NYSE-MKT: TMQ).
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
