Cuadrilla Resources believes there are 200 trillion cubic feet of 'shale' gas in the Bowland basin, which could result in a Lancashire gas boom creating 5,600 jobs at peak production...Its 200 trillion figure has not been independently verified and often only a small percentage of a probable reserve can be extracted. Current estimates for UK shale gas potential are just 4.2 trillion cubic feet.

...So says the British Geological Survey (BGS), which has compiled a 'risk list' of elements assessing the precariousness of our supplies. The study examines the scarcity of each element in Earth's crust, how many countries produce it and the political stability of those countries. It says supplies of antimony, tungsten, mercury and the platinum group of elements are most endangered.

Rock samples taken from a nuclear site were first checked for radioactive contamination before being added to a national collection held in Nottingham. Six hundred boxes of stone have been sent from Dounreay in Caithness to the British Geological Survey's (BGS) national rocks repository. Each cylinder-shaped metre-long sample, called a core, was monitored at Dounreay for potential contamination. The samples will be available to scientists and geologists to study.
