beneath the surface COMMUNITY SOLUTIONS FOR THE GLOBAL MINING THREAT Project Vision: Preventing Human Rights Abuses Related to Mining The objective of this multi-­‐year project is to build a multimedia toolkit that educates, empowers, and connects communities impacted by extractive industries. The toolkit aims to stop human rights abuses before they occur and to put communities in a strong position to protect their rights and fight for justice. The project uses videos to share stories and practical advice from communities already impacted by mining with communities where mining will soon occur. These stories will form the foundation of a video toolkit that provides communities with strategies and techniques for protecting their rights, and inspires them to action. Cutting Edge Tools for Community Organizations All videos will be published with a facilitator’s guide to help maximize the impact of video screenings and support communities in taking meaningful action. Videos will be distributed on DVDs, USBs, and online, along with links to relevant guides and further information on key topics and strategies covered in the videos. Key partners will also be provided with projection equipment and hands-­‐on training to launch their grassroots distribution program. Video Collection: Year 1 ● The Impacts of Mining (Peru, Democratic Republic of Congo, Zimbabwe) ● Baseline Data and Environmental Monitoring (Nigeria) ● Community Mapping and Resistance to Mining (Ghana) ● Building a Resistance Movement (Peru, forthcoming) ● Negotiating for Environmental Protections (Bolivia, forthcoming) ● Resettlement and Relocation (Zimbabwe, forthcoming) Iteration & Year 2 The second phase of our project emphasizes distribution, feedback, and iteration. We will hold special screenings with target audiences in Haiti, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and other countries where mining poses an imminent threat. We are also seeking feedback from experts and practitioners on how to improve the content, and our distribution and implementation strategy. Get Involved!

Fleet Management: Using Data to Successfully Manage Ultra-Class Trucks
 
05:46
Anglo-American’s Dawson Mine lies in the rich coal country of Central Queensland, Australia. It’s a very busy site in a tough environment, and the mine’s large hauling fleet produces a lot of health data — data that was difficult and time-consuming to sift through. As a result, maintenance of the machines was more reactive than proactive. To improve the site’s fleet uptime, Cat dealer Hastings-Deering employed a Condition Monitoring program that has been enabled by Cat Equipment Care Advisor — a web-based tool that combines equipment and application data with real-time analytics, plus the combined expertise of the global dealer network. This implementation is helping the mine better plan and schedule repairs before problems escalate — reducing costs and improving the availability of the fleet.
Germany plans to phase out coal mining | DW News

A key government commission is meeting in Berlin today, as it seeks solutions for phasing out coal power in Germany. It's a vexed topic - but one that goes hand-in-hand with government plans to cut carbon emissions, in line with global targets. Still, in the eastern region of Lusatia, it's the economic impact of cutting out coal - rather than the environmental - that's on people's minds.

COP24 environment summit being held in Polish coal mining city
 
05:37
(27 Nov 2018) Poland, Europe's largest source of coal, will host this year's global climate summit in Katowice, the main city in Silesia, an area with a centuries-old mining tradition. The two-week conference starting December 2 will see governments, scientists and campaigners from around the world haggle over how to implement the Paris climate accord. The 2015 agreement set a goal of keeping global warming well below 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit), which experts say requires sharp cuts in carbon emissions that can only be achieved by getting rid of coal-fired power plants. Poland's government argues that Katowice is a showcase for how a colliery centre can be transformed into a modern, environment-friendly city. The venue is a closed mine turned into a museum and culture centre. But despite the creation of a green technology hub and numerous new parks in recent years, Katowice and the surrounding region remains heavily reliant on coal. For Tomasz Mlynarczyk who operates heavy extraction machinery at the Wujek mine in Katowice, coal is a "treasure." "If there was no coal there would be no jobs," he said. Climate activists believe it is time for Poland to move away from the industry. However the mining industry has long been a source of pride and employment for generations of Silesians and 83 percent of Poland's energy still comes from coal. Consecutive governments have been assuring miners in Silesia, home to some 4 million people, that coal will remain important, if not leading, energy source until 2050. "The industry is still present in our city but no longer to such a significant degree as it used to be," said Katowice's mayor Marcin Krupa. Engineer and environmental activist Patryk Bialas plans to drive home that message during next month's climate conference in Katowice. "Coal and mining industry is a very strong element of our regional and local identity, for sure, but people are ready for change - and what they expect from politicians: they expect hope, new jobs and growth," Bialas said. At the same time, Poland's rollout of renewable energy, which provide about 15 percent of its electricity, has stalled, in part due to legislation that protects traditional, state-owned energy companies.

Ultra-Wideband Radar for Robust Inspection Drone in Underground Coal Mines
 
03:00
ICRA 2018 Spotlight Video Interactive Session Tue AM Pod B.5 Authors: Cunha, Fernando; Youcef-Toumi, Kamal Title: Ultra-Wideband Radar for Robust Inspection Drone in Underground Coal Mines Abstract: Coal mines pose a high safety risk for human workers. An autonomous inspection drone would enable a coal mine operation to reduce this risk by minimizing the time spent by workers inside the mine. This inspection drone must be highly robust to the harsh and dangerous environment of an underground coal mine, with high levels of coal dust and humidity that can obstruct many conventional sensing methods. For high functionality, the drone must sense and avoid potential obstacles and as well as inspect and map the mining wall face. The objective of this paper is to present ultra-wideband (UWB) radar as a robust sensing solution to this challenging environment and validate its performance experimentally in the typical coal mine environment, both statically and dynamically.

50 Mining Engineering Interview Questions And Answers || Frequently asked questions in an interview
 
09:21
Mining engineering is an engineering discipline that applies science and technology to the extraction of minerals from the earth. Mining engineering is associated with many other disciplines, such as geology, mineral processing and metallurgy, geotechnical engineering and surveying. A mining engineer may manage any phase of mining operations – from exploration and discovery of the mineral resource, through feasibility study, mine design, development of plans, production and operations to mine closure. With the process of Mineral extraction, some amount of waste and uneconomic material are generated which are the primary source of pollution in the vicinity of mines. Mining activities by their nature cause a disturbance of the natural environment in and around which the minerals are located. Mining engineers must therefore be concerned not only with the production and processing of mineral commodities, but also with the mitigation of damage to the environment both during and after mining as a result of the change in the mining area. Salary and statistics Mining salaries are usually determined by the level of skill required, where the position is, and what kind of organization the engineer is working for.[citation needed] When comparing salaries from one region to another, cost of living and other factors need to be taken into consideration. Mining engineers in India earn relatively high salaries in comparison to many other professions, with an average salary of $15,250. However, in comparison to mining engineer salaries in other regions, such as Canada, the United States, Australia and the United Kingdom, Indian salaries are low. In the United States, there are an estimated 6,630 employed mining engineers, with a mean yearly salary of USD$90,070. Education Students outside Colorado School of Mines campus There are many ways to become a Mining Engineer but all include a university degree in Mining Engineering. Primarily, training includes a Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng. or B.E.), Bachelor of Science (B.Sc. or B.S.), Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) orBachelor of Applied Science (B.A.Sc.) in Mining Engineering. Depending on the country and jurisdiction, to be licensed as a mining engineer a Master's degree; Master of Engineering (M.Eng.),Master of Science (M.Sc or M.S.) or Master of Applied Science(M.A.Sc.) maybe required. There are also mining engineers who have come from other disciplines e.g. from engineering fields likeMechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering,Geomatics Engineering, Environmental Engineering or from science fields like Geology, Geophysics, Physics, Geomatics, Earth Science,Mathematics, However, this path requires taking a graduate degree such as M.Eng, M.S., M.Sc. or M.A.Sc. in Mining Engineering after graduating from a different quantitative undergraduate program in order to be qualified as a mining engineer. The fundamental subjects of mining engineering study usually include: Mathematics; Calculus, Algebra, Differential Equations,Numerical Analysis Geoscience; Geochemistry, Geophysics, Mineralogy, Geomatics Mechanics; Rock mechanics, Soil Mechanics, Geomechanics Thermodynamics; Heat Transfer, Work (thermodynamics), Mass Transfer Hydrogeology Fluid Mechanics; Fluid statics, Fluid Dynamics Geostatistics; Spatial Analysis, Statistics Control Engineering; Control Theory, Instrumentation Surface Mining; Open-pit mining Underground mining (soft rock) Underground mining (hard rock) Computing; MATLAB, Maptek (Vulcan) Drilling and blasting Solid Mechanics; Fracture Mechanics In the United States, the University of Arizona offers a B.S. in Mining Engineering with tracks in mine operations, geomechanics, sustainable resource development and mineral processing. South Dakota School of Mines and Technology offers a B.S. in Mining Engineering and also an M.S. in Mining Engineering and Management and Colorado School of Mines offers a M.S. in Mining and Earth-Systems Engineering, also Doctorate (Ph.D.) degrees in Mining and Earth-Systems Engineering and Underground Construction and Tunnel Engineering respectively. In Canada, McGill University offers both undergraduate (B.Sc. or B.Eng.) and graduate (M.Sc. or M.S.) degrees in Mining Engineering. and the University of British Columbia in Vancouveroffers a Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.Sc.) in Mining Engineering and also graduate degrees (M.A.Sc. or M.Eng and Ph.D.) in Mining Engineering. In Europe most programs are integrated (B.S. plus M.S. into one) after the Bologna Process and take 5 years to complete. InPortugal, the University of Porto offers a M.Eng. in Mining and Geo-Environmental Engineering and in Spain the Technical University of Madrid offers degrees in Mining Engineering with tracks in Mining Technology, Mining Operations, Fuels and Explosives, Metallurgy.

So does Leonardo DiCaprio. And many others. The argument goes like this: Regular cars run on gasoline, a fossil fuel that pumps CO2 straight out of the tailpipe and into the atmosphere. Electric cars run on electricity. They don’t burn any gasoline at all. No gas; no CO2. In fact, electric cars are often advertised as creating “zero emissions.” But do they really? Let’s take a closer look. First, there’s the energy needed to produce the car. More than a third of the lifetime carbon-dioxide emissions from an electric car comes from the energy used make the car itself, especially the battery. The mining of lithium, for instance, is not a green activity. When an electric car rolls off the production line, it’s already been responsible for more than 25,000 pounds of carbon-dioxide emission. The amount for making a conventional car: just 16,000 pounds. But that’s not the end of the CO2 emissions. Because while it’s true that electric cars don’t run on gasoline, they do run on electricity, which, in the U.S. is often produced by another fossil fuel -- coal. As green venture capitalist Vinod Khosla likes to point out, "Electric cars are coal-powered cars." The most popular electric car, the Nissan Leaf, over a 90,000-mile lifetime will emit 31 metric tons of CO2, based on emissions from its production, its electricity consumption at average U.S. fuel mix and its ultimate scrapping. A comparable Mercedes CDI A160 over a similar lifetime will emit just 3 tons more across its production, diesel consumption and ultimate scrapping. The results are similar for a top-line Tesla, the king of electric cars. It emits about 44 tons, which is only 5 tons less than a similar Audi A7 Quattro. So throughout the full life of an electric car, it will emit just three to five tons less CO2. In Europe, on its European Trading System, it currently costs $7 to cut one ton of CO2. So the entire climate benefit of an electric car is about $35. Yet the U.S. federal government essentially provides electric car buyers with a subsidy of up to $7,500. Paying $7,500 for something you could get for $35 is a very poor deal. And that doesn’t include the billions more in federal and state grants, loans and tax write-offs that go directly to battery and electric-car makers The other main benefit from electric cars is supposed to be lower pollution. But remember Vinod Khosla’s observation "Electric cars are coal-powered cars." Yes, it might be powered by coal, proponents will say, but unlike the regular car, coal plant emissions are far away from the city centers where most people live and where damage from air pollution is greatest. However, new research in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that while gasoline cars pollute closer to home, coal-fired power actually pollutes more -- a lot more.

Dr. Michel Aubertin: Mine Wastes Management @ RIME Part 1
 
23:36
Dr. Michel Aubertin is the Scientific Director of the Research Institute on Mines and Environment (RIME UQAT-Polytechnique) and a professor at Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal. Dr. Aubertin gives a keynote presentation on work at the Research Institute of Mines and Environment (RIME). This is Part 1 of the presentation. He introduces the principles of waste rock management, both open pit and underground. He also discusses the challenges of tailings after processing the ore. RIME has been dealing mainly with hard rock mines; the low concentration of minerals in the ore produces sizeable quantities of waste rock and tailings from Quebec mines. Dr. Aubertin emphasizes waste rock piles are not dumps; they are engineered structures. He discusses the knowledge gained in the twelve years that the Research Chair has existed at Polytechnique Montreal and UQAT, and explains the significance of the partnerships between the universities, government and industry companies such as Lamgold and Osisko. The benefits of the collaboration include such benefits as: the new lab facilities in both university locations, the 139 graduate students hired to do research, and the 120 academic papers published. Dr. Aubertin describes the details of several projects, including: improving surface disposal of tailings, optimizing surface disposal of waste rock, and water quality production - including mathematical modeling of the hydro-chemical processes. Dr. Michel Aubertin gave this keynote presentation at the Tailings and Mine Waste conference in Banff, Alberta on November 5, 2013.

Cursed by Coal: Mining the Navajo Nation

There's a resource curse on the Navajo Nation. The 27,000-square-mile reservation straddling parts of Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah has an extremely high abundance of many energy resources — particularly coal. That coal is what's burned to provide much of the Southwest with electricity, and it creates jobs for the Navajo. But the mining and burning have also caused environmental degradation, serious health issues, and displacement. VICE News travels to the Navajo Nation to find out how its abundance of coal is affecting the future of the Navajo people.

Joe Biden’s Climate Change Ideas Are Centrist Nonsense
 
04:46
Joe Biden said recently that he wants to find a “common ground” solution to climate change, which really means that he isn’t going to do anything about the problem. There is no middle ground on climate change – either we act or we let the planet pass the point of no return. This problem is completely fixable, but not if we try to reach a middle ground with oil companies and others who profit off the destruction of the planet. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/05/10/joe-bidens-baffling-misread-climate-change/?utm_term=.dfd37390539e   Become a member today!: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYWIEbibRcZav6xMLo9qWWw/join Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

On Friday, Reuters reported the Joe Biden and his presidential campaign, which is still polling in first place no matter which poll you look at. Uh, they're, they're gonna try to come up with some kind of middle ground approach to climate change. They want to find common ground amongst all parties on how best to save the planet. Yeah. Isn't that the kind of feel good, wonderful campaign we've been waiting for after years of Donald Trump's just plain unpleasantness. Let's all get along. Let's find that common ground. Let's have fossil fuel companies sit down at the table with environmentalists and then whatever each side says, we'll come up with something in the middle. Cause that's totally going to solve the climate problem, right? No. Likey has on so many other issues. Joe Biden, absolutely misfired on the issue of climate change, which really is the most important issue in this election. We're running out of time, but there is still time. Okay, we can fix this problem, we can solve it, we can reverse it. And we can be revered as the generation of American citizens as a whole who averted catastrophe. But we don't have much time. We could fix it. But common ground, middle ground, whatever you want to call it, isn't gonna fix it. Guess who shouldn't have a say at the table? The people who caused the problem. That's the bottom line. We do not need to hear from fossil fuel companies. We don't need to hear from the frackers. We don't need to hear from anyone who's made a dollar off of this crisis. The people we need to hear from are the scientists and engineers who know what the hell they're talking about and know how to get us to a solution. That's pretty much it, right? We need the scientist to tell us how long we have and what needs to happen. You know, our mission goals and all those kinds of things. And then the engineers to tell us how to rebuild the energy infrastructure to support renewable energy, to deliver it a fashion, uh, efficiently. We already know that costs are coming down over renewable energy. It's now more affordable and we need the workers possibly hear me out on this crazy idea. Take the people who are currently working down there in the coal mines with pick axes, you know, extracting that Cole and maybe instead put them to work building solar panels, maybe invest in some kind of public works project that pays for the retraining, pays great wages for these people, gets them out of the coal mines. #rof #trofire #theringoffire #progressivenews

The CSIR has developed and patented two wastewater technologies. One purifies mine wastewater to a standard that is suitable for domestic, agricultural and industrial use, while the other recovers valuable minerals from municipal wastewater. Acid mine water is a by-product of the mining and mineral industry. Mines ceased pumping water as resources such as gold became depleted, resulting in water accumulating in the void and discharging into neighbouring mines and connecting underground tunnels. Active and abandoned mines discharge millions of megalitres of metalliferous and acidic drainage, laden with toxic and hazardous chemicals per year, posing serious health risks to humans and other living organisms.

Dust Generation during Dumper Movement | Iron Ore Mine
 
00:39
This is a short video which I recorded during my visit to an Iron Ore Mine in the Karnataka region of India, showing dust generation due to Dumper movement, a typical scenario of an iron ore mine in India. Dust generation is major environmental problem faced by people working & living near mining areas, suitable suppression methods are required for controlling them. Water sprinkling is a solution to some extent, but dust generation is not arrested completely. Also a lot of fuel and manpower is wasted in operating water tankers for the purpose. Suitable bio-degradable chemicals (mixed with water) options need to be explored to reduce the dependency on water for dust suppression, offering better results.

VentSim CONNECT is a manual ventilation management and control system operated through simple and intuitive control screens which help you quickly understand the conditions in any area of a mine and make necessary adjustments. All options are pre-programmed for a straightforward plug-and-play package that is flexible and easy to use. The system allows you to quickly adapt to situations where ventilation needs are constantly changing. VentSim CONTROL is a fully automatic system that allows you to change mine ventilation to fit with working schedules and real-time operations. Fan speed is automatically reduced or increased, or switched on and off according to shift changes or planned events such as blasting and position of vehicles and personnel. Schedules and events can be easily added or overridden to accommodate one-off or unplanned incidents. It uses tagging and tracking technology for an intelligent ventilation on-demand system. Underground workers and vehicles are electronically tagged, detecting their movements throughout different sectors of the mine. When personnel or machines enter or leave a specific sector, the software automatically adjusts the airflow and ventilation Howden's Total Mine Ventilation Solutions significantly help reduce operating costs and increase safety and production.
