What is SHAFT MINING? What does SHAFT MINING mean? SHAFT MINING meaning & explanation
 
08:45
What is SHAFT MINING? What does SHAFT MINING mean? SHAFT MINING meaning - SHAFT MINING definition - SHAFT MINING explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Shaft mining or shaft sinking is excavating a vertical or near-vertical tunnel from the top down, where there is initially no access to the bottom. Shallow shafts, typically sunk for civil engineering projects differ greatly in execution method from deep shafts, typically sunk for mining projects. When the top of the excavation is the ground surface, it is referred to as a shaft; when the top of the excavation is underground, it is called a winze or a sub-shaft. Small shafts may be excavated upwards from within an existing mine as long as there is access at the bottom, in which case they are called Raises. A shaft may be either vertical or inclined (between 45 and 90 degrees to the horizontal), although most modern mine shafts are vertical. If access exists at the bottom of the proposed shaft and ground conditions allow then raise boring may be used to excavate the shaft from the bottom up, such shafts are called borehole shafts. Shaft Sinking is one of the most difficult of all development methods: restricted space, gravity, groundwater and specialized procedures make the task quite formidable. Historically mine shaft sinking has been among the most dangerous of all mining occupations and the preserve of mining contractors. Today shaft sinking contractors are concentrated in Canada and South Africa. The most visible feature of a mine shaft is the headframe (or winding tower, poppet head or pit head) which stands above the shaft. Depending on the type of hoist used the top of the headframe will either house a hoist motor or a sheave wheel (with the hoist motor mounted on the ground). The headframe will also contain bins for storing ore being transferred to the processing facility. At ground level beneath and around the headframe is the Shaft Collar (also called the Bank or Deck), which provides the foundation necessary to support the weight of the headframe and provides a means for men, materials and services to enter and exit the shaft. Collars are usually massive reinforced concrete structures with more than one level. If the shaft is used for mine ventilation, a plenum space or casing is incorporated into the collar to ensure the proper flow of air into and out of the mine. Beneath the Collar the part of the shaft which continues into the ground is called the Shaft Barrel. At locations where the Shaft Barrel meets horizontal workings there is a Shaft Station which allows men, materials and services to enter and exit the shaft. From the station tunnels (drifts, galleries or levels) extend towards the ore body, sometimes for many kilometers. The lowest Shaft Station is most often the point where rock leaves the mine levels and is transferred to the shaft, if so a Loading Pocket is excavated on one side of the shaft at this location to allow transfer facilities to be built. Beneath the lowest Shaft Station the shaft continues on for some distance, this area is referred to as the Shaft Bottom. A tunnel called a Ramp typically connects the bottom of the shaft with the rest of the mine, this Ramp often contains the mine's water handling facility, called the Sump, as water will naturally flow to the lowest point in the mine. Shafts may be sunk by conventional drill and blast or mechanised means. The industry is gradually attempting to shift further towards shaft boring but a reliable method to do so has yet to be developed. The shaft lining performs several functions; it is first and foremost a safety feature preventing loose or unstable rock from falling into the shaft, then a place for shaft sets to bolt into and lastly a smooth surface to minimise resistance to airflow for ventilation. In North and South America, smaller shafts are designed to be rectangular with timber supports. Larger shafts are round and are concrete lined. Final choice of shaft lining is dependent on the geology of the rock which the shaft passes through, some shafts have several liners sections as required Where shafts are sunk in very competent rock there may be no requirement for lining at all, or just the installation of welded mesh and rock bolts. The material of choice for shaft lining is mass concrete which is poured behind Shaft Forms in Lifts of 6m as the shaft advances (gets deeper).

Construction Layout with the Trimble Robotic Total Station
 
02:28
Building Information Modeling - “BIM” for short - is revolutionizing the construction industry thanks to extensive use of centrally-shared data and 3D modelling of modern developments. But, often, contractors still rely on printed plans, tape measures and plumb lines to translate those designs to the field. The next evolution in BIM is technology which brings the precision and detail of the 3D models to the field saving time, and money. Trimble has designed the Robotic Total Station to do exactly that. Our simple-to-use Trimble Field software allows Contractors to import 3D models from all the leading formats and then calculates all the key points that will need marking.

Loading Machine Operators - Underground Mining
 
01:29
Loading machine operators in underground mining operate machines to haul coal, rock or ore onto conveyor belts or mine cars. They drive machines that collect the material created from mine blasts. They also operate the mine cars and conveyor belts used to transport the mining materials. They may also troubleshoot and repair, as needed, any machine functioning errors. http://goo.gl/FLQrbz
National Security, Rare Earth Elements & The Thorium Problem
 
23:00
"The only operating rare earth mine in the United States sends all of their valuable resources to China for processing. Congress does not know this. They think this [mining] company is supplying the U.S. value chain, [and] is supplying the military. It is in-fact, the opposite. They are part of the Chinese monopoly. They're taking powder and shipping it to China, and it comes back as a magnet, or an alloy, or a bolt-on component." - Jim Kennedy To address this issue, contact your legislators to support H.R.4883 https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/113/hr4883 Why can't Molycorp, Lynas or any other 'western' rare earth company succeed? China's production and market advantage in Rare Earth Elements (REE) is largely the result of NRC and IAEA "Source Material" regulations with unintended consequences. Source Material: Materials containing any ratio or combination of Thorium and Uranium above .05%. Producing or holding these materials within the regulatory threshold (.05%) requires extensive and wide-ranging licensing, storage, transportation, remediation disposal and compliance costs, including prohibitive liability and bonding issues. Consequently any potential supplier of byproduct / co-product rare earth resources that would be designated as "source material' disposes of these valuable resources to avoid liability and compliance issues. NRC / IAEA regulations regarding "Source Material" played a key roll in undermining the economic viability of all 'western' rare earth producers and are a critical factor in China's current 'market advantage'. Producers like Molycorp and Lynas, with low Thorium deposits, can never compete with China. Resources are abundant and available: U.S mining companies currently mine as much as 50% of global Rare Earth Elements demand every year. But these resources are diverted in tailings lakes or are redistributed back into the host ore body, due to NRC and IAEA regulations defining Monazite and other Thorium bearing rare earth resources as "Source Material". H.R. 4883 would solve the "Thorium Problem" by creating a federally chartered multinational Thorium Energy and Industrial Products Corporation ("Thorium Bank"). Privately funded and operated, this would decouple thorium from rare earth production. The Thorium Corporation would also have Congressional Authority to develop Thorium energy systems and industrial products. Environmental regulations are not scaled back... rather this enables thorium to be stored safely & securely, rather then being treated as "waste". https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/113/hr4883 H.R. 4883 thus also addresses the U.S. Weapons Systems current 100% Dependency on China for Rare Earths. http://thoriumenergyalliance.com/downloads/TEAC6/USWeaponsChinese.pdf Federal Legislation governing Strategic Materials, 10 USC 2533b, does not specify rare earths, but includes metal alloys containing limited amounts of manganese, silicon, copper, or aluminum, chromium, cobalt, columbium, molybdenum, nickel, titanium, tungsten, vanadium, nickel and iron-nickel, cobalt, Titanium and Zirconium alloys. Federal Regulations require that these materials be melted in the U.S. Most of these materials are utilized in rare earth alloys, magnets and components in the defense industry. The bill does NOT reclassify thorium. It does NOT alter current environmental protection. It simply resolves "The Thorium Problem" which cripples United States domestic rare earth mining, processing and value-adding processes.

Classic Machines: Wabco's 101F elevating scraper
 
01:13
Wabco's 101F elevating scraper: an overview by Richard Campbell An entirely new design for Wabco, the 101F bore no family resemblance to any other scraper in the Wabco range and was entirely hydraulically (rather than electrically) controlled. Instead of replacing the company’s existing 11 cubic yard model 111A elevating scraper, the slightly smaller nine cubic yard 101F complemented it. It wasn’t until the model 101G was introduced in 1976 that the model 111A (which was first introduced in 1960) was finally discontinued. Design studies on the 101F were undertaken in 1968 and the first prototypes put into test in the same year. Remarkably simple in design, the 101F boasted outstanding visibility for the operator. At only eight feet wide (2.4 metres) and only 27,900lb (12,600kg) in tare weight, a 101F could be legally driven from job to job under its own steam, making it a most versatile tool. Although there was a little market resistance to the machine at first, no doubt caused by the machine’s unusual appearance, pretty soon the 101F began to sell in quantity and was especially popular with land development, irrigation, landscaping and utility contractors. As mentioned, during 1976 Wabco undertook an upgrade of the 101F which resulted in the model 101G. Principal improvements included a completely redesigned, higher capacity bowl, which now had a rating of 11 cubic yards. Other changes were largely system improvements that had been brought to light during the production run of the 101F. Many of these later machines were delivered in all-white paint with red trim which made an unusual looking machine even more striking. The Wabco 101F was directly competitive with the Michigan 110-9, John Deere 760A and International E200, while the later model 101G counted the Caterpillar 613B, International 412, Terex S11E, John Deere 762 and Michigan 110-11 as adversaries. Wabco pulled the plug on 101 production in 1984 when it sold its construction equipment division to Dresser Industries. Regrettably Dresser did not reintroduce the machine (or any others of the Wabco scraper line for that matter) under its own brand. The Wabco 101F described Wabco chose Cummins rather than the traditional GM-Detroit Diesel to provide the engine for the model 101F. The engine selected was the 178 horsepower Cummins V-504, an industrial version of Cummins’ V-555 truck engine. This was a lightweight, high output naturally aspirated V8 similar to the Caterpillar 3208 and gave the 101F a particularly good power to weight ratio for an elevating scraper. In a further departure from normal practice, a Clark (rather than Allison) powershift transmission was installed featuring eight forward and one reverse speed. This allowed the 101F to move along at approximately 28 mph in top gear. This was mated to a Wabco differential and final drives to complete the power train. Air operated, hydraulically actuated shoe type brakes were used on both axles. Standard tyres were listed as 18.00 x 25 but most New Zealand machines were delivered on the optional wide base 23.5 x 25 tyre, giving them a larger ‘footprint’ and better flotation. Steering was via twin, double acting hydraulic cylinders attached low down on the scraper universal hitch. As well as maintaining a low centre of gravity, this made them readily accessible for service if need be. The pump used to provide steering pressure was one of the first generation variable displacement types that are now so common on machinery. This produced 21 gallons per minute at rated engine speed. Wabco designed and built the bowl and elevator assembly (rather than Hancock) and this was rated at nine cubic yards. It featured a 15-flight hydraulically powered two speed elevator and the usual sliding floor with bulldozer ejector. Contrary to usual Wabco practice, the cutting edge was not a fixed item and retracted with the floor, doing away with the normal drop down strike off levelling plate, an item which Wabco had formerly promoted. Four bolt-on cutting edge teeth could be fitted to aid in penetrating hard to load materials. The operator enjoyed control tower visibility and was provided with a Milsco air suspension seat. The operator’s deck was mounted above the engine and radiator assemblies. Instrumentation was located on a panel in front of the operator on a tubular frame, which also supported the steering column. To the operator’s right were the bowl, elevator, ejector and transmission levers, all closely grouped and within easy reach. These levers had a short throw and required little effort to use, a plus over a day’s work. Thanks for checking out NZ Contractor magazine's Wabco 101F clip.

Doing some very quick research we noticed this site was connected to numerous dating services that we have already exposed. The fake dating services include LocalMilfSelfies.com, JadaParks.com, SmashYourFriends.co.uk, and BBWDesire.com, these sites are all associated with XMeets.com. After we learned of these connections then we decided to register on the site so we could do a full and thorough investigation of how this site operates. We registered on the site as a regular web user, creating a profile page and then letting it sit. For this investigation we have provided overwhelming evidence of wrongdoing, lots of lies and deceptions. It wasn't very difficult to prove this was a bogus hook-up site with all the evidence provided by XMeets. Our review determined this was an illegitimate dating site created to rip off thousands of web users. The full investigation into XMeets.com can be read below. This Site Admits To Fake "Fantasy Cutie" Profiles Operated By 3rd Party Contractors The first thing we noticed was directly on the homepage of XMeets.com. We took a screenshot as evidence that you can see circled in red (see evidence below) talk about something called "Fantasy Cuties". These member profiles are operated by independent contractors which have been hired by the site. Remember, this is on the homepage website. Contractors are people who are paid to perform a duty. So why are they hiring people to operate "Fantasy Cutie" profiles? It's because these profiles are totally fake and run by the dating site. What you're looking at is an admission of guilt by the administrators of this website. XMeets.com is telling you that they pay people to operate member profiles. Why would they pay someone to operate a female profile on their website? We will get into this further along in this investigation. Understand that you are on a dating site that is completely rigged against you. It's a fraud designed to steal money out of your wallet. Proof Of Phony Female Profile Photos Stolen From Other Sources It wasn't hard to prove that this website was creating their own fake profiles they outline everything they do in their terms and conditions. But now we're proving and showing you with evidence and links where these photographs are being taken from. The large majority of fictitious female profile pages on XMeets.com are stealing photos from amateur porn sites. With these amateur porn photographs they build and create fake profile pages that are then uploaded to their website. You can take a look at the evidence we have provided below. We have evidence in the form of screenshots of female profile pages on XMeets.com, and all the corresponding web links where are these photographs have been taken from. Add this to the outstanding evidence proving even further how fraudulent this dating services. Xmeets Review - Is Xmeets Scam Or Not

Klondike Alaska: A Rail History
 
01:29:30
For most people, railroads in Alaska and the Yukon are synonymous with the Alaska Railroad and the White Pass and Yukon Railroad whose passenger cars provide tourists with vistas of awe-inspiring terrain. That same terrain provided enormous challenges for early settlers of both territories. Railroads were an integral part of overcoming those challenges. Dozens of other railroads also laid track in Alaska, the Yukon, and northwest British Columbia and provided the means to transport supplies to settlements and to transport the region’s raw materials to outside markets. Klondike Alaska charts the history of many of those railroads. ©KUAC 2005 DVD's of this program are available for purchase at www.kuac.org.

Port Waratah Coal Services - Members Take Action
 
08:05
Maritime Union of Australia members are poised to launch protected industrial action against Rio Tinto's subsidiary Port Waratah Coal Services (PWCS) in Newcastle after an impasse in negotiation because of the company's strident anti-union posture. Workers at Kooragang Island and Carrington have voted on the motion to take protected industrial action against PWCS, which has achieved strong support from the workers. "Rio Tinto and PWCS need to understand that Australia is not Bangladesh," said Ian Bray, the assistant secretary of the Maritime Union of Australia. "In Australia, we have standards established over many years to make sure workers' have a voice, a decent standard of living and, most important, a safety and health regime so their life and limbs are safeguarded." PWCS' anti-union proposals are seeking to undermine the safety and health of workers, tear up long-standing settlement procedure of contract issues, and radically change the scope of matters that can be arbitrated. Newcastle Branch Secretary Glen Williams "PWCS management is poisoning a long history of mutually beneficial good relations with its aggressive anti-worker, anti-union approach," said MUA Newcastle Branch Secretary Glen Williams. "It's trying to stick it to workers at every turn, refusing our reasonable claim that sick or injured workers should have a right to leave without pay and salary continuance insurance to deal with their illness. It just shows the PWCS - Rio attitude that workers are expendable parts." "PWCS has even gone so far as to try to remove the dispute procedure clause that has been in the agreement for many years which would allow PWCS do as it pleases even if a dispute resolution procedure is underway," added Williams. Talks between union members and PWCS have seen more than eight months of negotiations. The single bargaining unit representing workers comprises the Maritime Union of Australia, the Transport Workers Union, the Electrical Trade Union, and the Australian Manufacturing Workers Union. Mick Forbes, Branch Secretary of the Transport Workers' Union, Newcastle Branch, said the problem was that PWCS management was not willing to bargain in good faith. "PWCS is playing hardball -- they won't move on job security and proposed changes to the contractor's clause makes our members very nervous about what the company's real intentions are," Mr Forbes said. "We have enjoyed a long period of industrial harmony at PWCS through generations of enterprise bargaining agreements that continue to benefit both parties." "During the time PWCS has operated the coal loaders, we have seen a cooperative and consultative approach to industrial relations that has allowed PWCS to become the biggest bulk handling facility in the world. This has not happened by accident and our members are as much a part of the success of the company as management," Forbes added. Daniel Wallace, AMWU Organiser said: "This is union busting 101 and our members are determined that a few industrial relations extremists, who have been appointed to positions within the management of PWCS, will not destroy the flexibility and industrial harmony we have all worked so hard to achieve over many years." "PWCS are showing absolute contempt for their workforce and they need to come to the table ready to resolve these negotiations as matter of urgency," ETU organiser Russell Wilson said. "They have openly said that they will train non-skilled employees who do not have the requisite safety skills to do the job while industrial action is underway. They are determined to undermine their workers," Wilson added. In July last year, Glen Williams wrote to NSW Health Minister Jillian Skinner seeking an independent report about the cause of a cancer cluster at Kooragang Island. The MUA is still awaiting a response to the letter but it is understood that Hunter Valley Area Health Service is providing an interim report to the Minister.

Silica Mine Underground Exploration: Quickest Video Yet!
 
02:52
We stopped by this rather unstable underground silica mine driving back from visiting family in Indiana. As neither of us had PPE or cap lamps, and we'd been driving for seven hours and were rather exhausted, we didn't go in more than a hundred feet. The back on this one appears unstable enough that I'd be more surprised if we didn't witness a minor fall at some point. I plan to return with PPE and the most powerful handheld lights we can afford; this mine is only an hour from our home base in Phelps County. It probably isn't apparent in the video, but the back in this mine is fifty feet high. It's really quite spectacular.

Government tasked to explain sand mining activities in Lwera swamp
 
02:58
Members of Parliament have taken to task the Minister of Energy and Mineral Development over the failed implementation of a parliamentary committee resolution on sand mining in Lwera along the shores on Lake Victoria. Last year, Parliament adopted the report of the Committee on Natural Resources that ordered the halting of sand mining in Lwera until clear guidelines had been set by the ministry and the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA). Minister of Energy and Mineral Development Irene Muloni pledged that by June, her ministry would have drafted design the sanding mining policy and could then implement the ban.

More Info. 314-646-8015 Hi, I'm Adam with Gallagher Brothers Construction, a St. Louis Siding and St. Louis Roofing Company. If you live in a home built before the 1980s, you can most likely find asbestos in it. If you were alive during the 1970s and 1980s, you probably remember the wide spread scare of the asbestos danger. People started panicking because asbestos could be found practically everywhere from offices, churches, schools, grocery stores, and worst of all, homes causes asbestosis. However, asbestos removal can be dangerous and expensive, so you might be wondering if it's worth the hassle. Well, asbestos fibers in the air are what causes the medical complications of all kinds. Whenever there is a chance of disturbing materials containing asbestos fibers, asbestos removal is highly encouraged.

REDTRAX Raise Drill Transporter
 
02:21
Redpath Mining Contractors and Engineers Continue to Innovate for the Raisebore Mining Industry. Following in the footsteps of Redpath’s in-house manufactured line of Redbore raisedrills, Redpath Raiseboring Limited, a member of The Redpath Group, has introduced an innovative raisedrill carrier to their fleet, the Redtrax. One year in the making, the Redtrax unit was designed and manufactured for the intent purpose of transporting raisedrills and related materials. The unit was a necessary progression of Redpath’s mining contractor operations toward self-sufficiency. Redtrax practically eliminates the dependence on other resources to move raisedrills throughout the mine site resulting in saved time and increased efficiency. Introducing Redtrax to the raiseboring work flow, frees previously required mine equipment such as telehandlers, forklifts and Load Haul Dump machines to perform other duties simultaneously, elsewhere at the mine site. Redtrax, compared to similar industry units, is the most modern drill carrier designed for purpose as opposed to retrofitted equipment, offering the lowest profile, modern operating systems and is environmentally conscious. Redtrax is diesel driven and leaves the lowest environmental footprint possible by using powerful motors and drive systems to meet emission standards and to significantly reduce job site noise levels. Redtrax offers clients increased productivity at both the raisedrill site and additional mine development areas where other equipment can continue to work uninterrupted. Designed for any typical mine site landscape, Redtrax is compatible with sand, mud, and water, both on surface and underground. Its high load bearing capacity makes swift work of transporting a variety of raisedrills. The current model will accommodate many drills on the market but is designed to host the Redbore 30, 40, 50 and 70 raisedrills. Future Redtrax models are currently on the drawing board for the remainder of the Redbore fleet. Additionally, carousels are being designed to increase Redtrax’s versatility to include the transport of rods, stabilizers, power packs and other related materials. This stable transporter is radio remote control capable or available with umbilical controls, to suit client preference. Several safety features include the operator’s ergonomic body harness, brake systems, fire suppression, tilt switch shut-down, directional lighting, back-up alarms and optional track insets to accommodate concrete surfaces. Operator training will be included in the established Redpath Raisebore Training School, facilitated by the company worldwide.

FOUNDATION FOR NEW HOUSE ON THE OCEAN VIDEO BY ASAP CUSTOM HOMES 904-993-3433 AND ASAP GENERAL CONTRACTING STATE CERTIFIED GENERAL CONTRACTOR SERVING ALL OF FLORIDA AND GEORGIA CUSTOM BUILT HOMES SPEC HOMES MODULAR HOMES DESIGN AND BUILD SERVING ALL OF FLORIDA AND GEORGIA MODULAR CONSTRUCTION Modular buildings and modular homes are sectional prefabricated buildings, or houses, that consist of multiple sections called modules. "Modular" is a method of construction (v. "stick-built" and other methods such as off-site construction. The modules are six sided boxes constructed in a remote facility, then delivered to their intended site of use. Using a crane, the modules are set onto the building's foundation and joined together to make a single residential, or commercial, building. The modules can be placed side-by-side, end-to-end, or stacked up to 6 stories in height, allowing a wide variety of configurations and styles in the building layout. Modular buildings, also called prefabricated buildings, differ from mobile homes, which are also called manufactured homes, in two ways. First, modular homes do not have axles or a frame, meaning that they are typically transported to their site by means of flat-bed trucks. Secondly, modular buildings must conform to all local building codes for their proposed use, while mobile homes, made in the United States, are required to conform to federal codes governed by HUD (U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development). There are some residential modular buildings that are built on a steel frame (referred to as on-frame modular) that do meet local building codes and are considered modular homes, rather than mobile homes. Modular buildings are often priced lower than their site-built counterparts, for a variety of reasons. Manufacturers cite the following reasons for the typically lower cost/price of these dwellings: Speed of construction/faster return on investment. Modular construction allows for the building and the site work to be completed simultaneously, reducing the overall completion schedule by as much as 50%. Indoor construction. Assembly is independent of weather, which increases work efficiency and avoids damaged building material. Favorable pricing from suppliers. Large-scale manufacturers can effectively bargain with suppliers for discounts on materials. Ability to service remote locations. Particularly in countries in which potential markets may be located far from industrial centers, such as Australia, there can be much higher costs to build a site-built house in a remote area or an area experiencing a construction boom such as mining towns. Modular homes can be built in major towns and sold to regional areas. Low waste. With the same plans being constantly built, the manufacturer has records of exactly what quantity of materials are needed for a given job. While waste from a site-built dwelling may typically fill several large dumpsters, construction of a modular dwelling generates much less waste. Environmentally friendly construction process. Modular construction reduces waste and site disturbance compared to site-built structures. Environmental benefits for used modular buildings. Modular buildings contain 100% reusable components. This means you have the ability to take the building down and relocate it. Should a company's needs change, the modular room can be moved and they never lose their original investment. Pre-owned modular buildings in particular are recognised by the UK Government as being extremely environmentally friendly compared with an equivalent new manufactured building. When a used modular building is relocated with minimal alterations, then the amount of energy used is approximately 3% of the energy that is required to manufacture a new equivalent modular building when minimal alterations are made. The reason for this is that the embodied energy contained within a modular building is transportable and is locked within the fabric of the building Flexibility. Conventional buildings can be difficult to extend, however with a modular building you can simply add sections, or even entire floors Healthier. Because modular homes are built in a factory, the materials are stored indoors in a controlled environment, eliminating the risk of mold, mildew, rust, and sun damage that can often lead to human respiratory problems. Traditional site-built homes are always at risk from these threats. According to manufacturers, modular homes are designed to be stronger than traditional homes by, for example, replacing nails with screws, adding glue to joints, and using 10-20% more lumber than conventional housing. This is to help the modules maintain their structural integrity as they are transported on trucks to the construction site; however, it is difficult to predict the final building strength since the modules need to endure transportation stresses that traditional homes never experience.
