Hydrocarbons dominate as sources of energy and are projected to be the dominant sources into the future.  Alternative energy sources currently make only a small percentage of the total energy but there is positive growth.  This one hour webinar will not only concentrate on U.S sources of energy but will discuss world energy sources and will discuss what the energy sources may look like in 2035 and some recommendations for the future.

Webinar
Critical and Strategic Minerals: Concepts and Status
Recorded on February 1, 2012
Presented by
Jim Burnell

Jim Burnell

The term critical and strategic minerals has been around for some 90 years to describe those mineral commodities needed for the US economy that are mostly imported. The term originated during the First World War to include those materials needed for the war effort. We developed a new list appropriate for economy and technology of 2011.  The webinar will review the history of the concept of critical and strategic minerals, look at the new list. Details of some of the key commodities will be reviewed, considering their uses, price histories, the U.S. import situation and their current status for U.S. dependence.

Both the National Academy of Sciences in the U.S. and a special commission of the European Union have conducted special studies and raised the concern over the future availability of many critical and strategic minerals to feed industry in their respective jurisdictions.

Jim Burnell is the Senior Minerals Geologist with the Colorado Geological Survey, responsible for metals, uranium, and industrial minerals. Jim is a Pennsylvania native who has lived in Colorado for 20 years. A Vietnam veteran, Jim received a bachelor’s degree in geology from Franklin and Marshall College, a M.S. from the University of Minnesota – Duluth, and a PhD from Brown University. He has been involved in teaching (Auburn University), research (Pacific Northwest National Laboratory), and worked in the fields of minerals, hazardous waste, and general geologic and management consulting in the private sector and for a Native American Tribal organization. With the State of Colorado since 1997, Jim joined the CGS in 2007. Jim's special interest has been the area of critical and strategic minerals. He was one of the first in the country to point out potential supply issues with mineral commodities and has been publishing and speaking on the topic for five years.
