Phys .org: Copper coating on 3-D-printed plastic filters proposed as a pandemic fighter. “In the ongoing fight against COVID-19, experts on microbiology and copper are recommending an expanded use of the metal to reduce the virus’s spread. So might copper be incorporated into the construction of masks, the universally accepted virus-fighting personal item? That’s what Jing Zhang of the School of Engineering and Technology at IUPUI and a team of researchers are doing, using a copper coating on 3-D-printed plastic filters to create more-efficient masks and respirators.”

University of Nevada, Reno: New Library Digital Collection: Consolidated Copper Photo Albums. “The University Libraries has recently added close to 1,000 images from the Nevada Consolidated Copper Records collection to its digital archive. These images date from the 1920s and 1930s and were digitized from 11 photo albums with cyanotype and black & white photographs. The Chief Engineer’s Office for the company captured these historic images, which depict mining operations, equipment, and progress from within the mining pits.”
