Police officer faces misconduct charge after sharing explicit photo with colleagues

“I told her the legal and social implications this would have on her if she showed more people.“It is a small station in Goole and it could have had an embarrassing impact and repercussions for years.”Pc Rachel Eyre told the hearing she had seen Ms Jackson and a colleague laughing over something, but had not known what. She said Ms Jackson later showed her the image. Ms Jackson is alleged to have caused upset and distress to colleagues by showing an explicit image to fellow officers on Sept 23 2016. She denies the three charges against her.The hearing, which is expected to last three days, continues. The sergeant who sent the photo has since been disciplined.Mr Burrell told a misconduct hearing yesterday: “Kate came to me saying that she had been sent this picture.

Rhyolite Ridge lithium looks to rapid development

first_imgLatest results confirm the potential for a simple, low-cost acid-leach process to produce lithium carbonate and boric acid at Global Geoscience Ltd’s Rhyolite Ridge project. This is a large, shallow sedimentary lithium-boron deposit located in southern Nevada, USA.Leach results provide an economic pathway for Rhyolite Ridge to become a significant near-term producer of lithium and boron through a low-cost acid-leach flowsheet using established technologies and processesRecoveries of 98% for lithium and 99% for boron from acid-leach test workAcid consumption of 296 kg/t of ore for both metals, well below the pre-test target range of 350-450 kgWork has commenced to optimise the processing flowsheetPFS due for completion in late 2017Global has exercised its option to acquire 100% ownership of the Rhyolite Ridge project with no residual interest or royalties to the previous owners.Global’s Managing Director, Bernard Rowe commented: “The acid-leach results exceed our expectations and demonstrate that Rhyolite Ridge mineralisation is amenable to low-cost acid-leaching to extract lithium and boron. The combination of high recoveries and low acid consumption from the test work indicates the likelihood of favourable economics.”Company Chairman, James D. Calaway commented “Our processing team, headed by Silvio Bertolli and Peter Ehren, working with Hazen Research and SGS Minerals, have made significant progress in uncovering and understanding the unique properties of this deposit, and then applying this knowledge to design what is a simple processing flowsheet. These latest results confirm our view that we have an economic pathway to make the Rhyolite Ridge resource into a significant, near-term producer of lithium and boron in America.”last_img read more
