Susan Petrie, Editor
I am the former editor of Photonics Spectra, an international, monthly B2B covering optics, lasers, and imaging. I hold an MFA in Poetry (Bennington College), which is great for humanizing excessively technical concepts. And, I live near the Hudson River in New York State and work on a personal project photographing and writing about the mid-Hudson region.
In March 2022, I contacted Mr Lasley by email to ask him some questions about “green minerals” mining in Alaska. Considering the list of critical minerals released by the U.S. in February, and the Biden-Harris Administration’s plans to make changes to the country’s mining framework, the time seemed right to ask an expert about what changes may lie ahead.
Over his more than 14 years of covering mining and mineral exploration, Shane has become renowned for his ability to report on the sector in a way that is technically sound enough to inform industry insiders while being easy to understand by a wider audience.
North of 60 Mining News is an Alaska-based trade publication that provides the most complete coverage of mining and mineral exploration across Alaska, northern British Columbia, Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut.
