  •  Interesting. A google for... (0+ / 0-)

    "carlin trench" returns exactly squat. Scary.

    •  try 'carlin trend' (4+ / 0-)

      I get 45,000 returns

      This refers to a geological "trend" in which a series of gold deposits lie upon a common "trend line" through the North of the state.

        is ChemGeek? I've been adding Chem to my name since the earliest AOL days (sometime in the late 80s as I recall), but I thought no one else would be that nerdy!

        •  Just a uber-nerdy chemist (0+ / 0-)

          slaving away in the fetid bowels of academia. Does that answer your question sufficiently?

          I may, in fact, be more of a nerd than you!

          Could be plenty of nerds round these parts, although it's interesting to see that there are almost as many "alchemist" user names as chem names!

          And in case you're wondering about my interest in the gold deposits in Nevada, I used to do exploration geochemistry along the Carlin trend.

          •  Hi (0+ / 0-)

            I'm really tired at the moment or I'd write something more eloquent and semi-coherent. Spent the last part of this week putting together a report with tons of exploratory data analysis (winnowed down considerably for comprehension by lawyers; also to get it done by deadline, heh) for two large soil sampling efforts in southern MI. I'm an environmental geochemist, dealing primarily in the transport, fate and remediation of contaminants in the subsurface. I used to work at one of EPA's research labs and have published in areas such as groundwater sampling (I did R&D that helped lead to low-flow sampling techniques), contaminant transport on mobile colloidal particles, permeable reactive barriers (geochemical mechanisms, reaction rates), etc. I'm currently in the private sector doing consulting for a company after running my own business for about 9 years, 7 of which I was an external advisor to Los Alamos among other clients. I used to live in Nevada, btw, moved to MI about 3 years ago. I wonder if there's any chance we know one another professionally?

            Good to hear from someone with similar interests. You may be nerdier than me but that would be tough to do! LOL.

            Have a great holiday weekend.
