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!

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.

Today, the demand for mined materials is greater than at any other time in history. World development and increased urbanization are driving sustained dependence on minerals, metals and coal. Energy usage is expected to increase significantly in the coming decades—placing even more emphasis on supply, security, cost and environmental impact issues. As the demand for commodities grows, mining companies need a partner to support them in their efforts. A partner who understands the issues important to the mining industry — like safety, sustainability and productivity. And a partner with the equipment, technologies, end-to-end services and solutions to support their operations. Caterpillar is committed to being that partner.

Mining reaps huge profits for the companies that own them and provides employment to a large number of people. It is also a huge source of revenue for the government. Despite its economic importance, the effects of mining on the environment is a pressing issue. Mining activities require the clearing of large areas of land. The chemicals used in the mining process often escape into the environment causing pollution. Watch this video to know how mining affects the environment.

(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.

Extreme amounts of fugitive dust were coming from this Coal Mine's overland conveyor. The dust collection set up at the time was ineffective for the amount of hazardous particulate being discharged, which created a danger for the workers and was against EPA guidelines. But DSI has a solution to every dust mitigation challenge-- in this case, a DryFog™ Dust Suppression System was installed, which achieved Zero Visible Emissions. DSI DryFog™ Dust Suppression Systems control fugitive dust while using significantly less water than competing systems. By creating ultra-fine water droplets only 1-10 microns in diameter, designed to agglomerate with even the finer, more evasive dust particulate, DryFog™ systems can effectively contain dust without adding any significant moisture to the material (less than 0.1%). Plus, a DryFog™ system will continue functioning to full capacity even when exposed to seasonal temperatures as low as -37.2° Celsius (-35° Fahrenheit), with no pricey chemical purchases, unlike problematic, less cost-effective Water Spray and Chemical Spray systems. Costs are far reduced by using less water and chemicals, and it is easier on the environment as well. DSI DryFog™ is the better dust solution. Find out more at http://www.nodust.com.

This presentation will cover the main issues facing modern mining - declining ore grades, bigger mines, giant open cut and underground mines, more tailings and waste rock, more energy-water-pollution issues, greater regulatory, corporate and financial scrutiny, and all the same time as communities are more aware of mining issues. Showing unique data sets and case studies, this talk will demonstrate that modern mining is far from running out of mineral resources but is clearly facing greater environmental risks. Solutions include better regulation, corporate reporting and accountability, as well as informed communities - thereby ensuring a responsible mining sector is contributing to sustainable development. About the Speaker: Dr. Gavin Mudd is a renowned global expert on the environmental sustainability of modern mining, and brings together a unique set of multi-disciplinary skills and knowledge to explore the challenges that the modern mining industry, governments and communities are collectively facing. His 20 years of research work have examined the environmental impacts to surface water and groundwater, waste rock and tailings management, acid mine drainage, rehabilitation, mineral resources, and the sustainability metrics of mining - and this has included detailed studies of almost all sectors of the global mining industry, such as gold, uranium, coal, gas, copper, nickel, platinum group elements, rare earths, mineral sands. To date he has presented or published more than 200 journal, conference and technical papers or reports (nearly two thirds of which are peer-reviewed) - with his research differentiated by the integration of rich data sets, leading the way in quantifying the environmental and sustainability issues affecting modern mining. Dr. Mudd is recognised worldwide for his unique and independent expertise on mining, and is currently Head of Environmental Engineering at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, where he has collaborated closely with Dr. Simon Jowitt in recent years on the geological side underpinning the environmental issues facing modern mining.

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.

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.

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. 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.

International Research Impact: http://bit.ly/impact-yt A team of civil engineering experts at Newcastle University is helping to tackle the global problem of water pollution caused by mining. Dr Adam Jarvis, Reader in Environmental Engineering, explains the impact of the work and describes a system that is being trialled to remove metal from water without the need for energy or chemicals. The 'vertical flow pond' in the Lake District National Park has been designed in collaboration with the Coal Authority, National Trust and Environment Agency, and funded by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. The method could pave the way for cleaning up hundreds of abandoned metal mines across England and potentially the world.

Moolarben Coal Operations (MCO) employees were engaged in a consultative process to discuss issues and potential solutions for collision incidents between heavy mobile equipment in operational areas. All crews developed ideas and solutions and the most appropriate was deemed to be a signal light on the roof of tracked heavy equipment in operating areas. This entailed the operator initiating radio contact to dozer operators who then acknowledges through the signal light to establish positive communication between the operating equipment. The solution was risk assessed and trialled under a controlled environment for a period of time. MCO employees were again engaged at the end of the trial period to assess the outcomes and highlight any deficiencies and concerns. There was only positive feedback from employees and the system was implemented on all tracked equipment with an acceptable cost per unit. Since the implementation of the safety light system there have been no further instances of collisions between heavy mobile equipment in MCO's operating areas

A legacy of long-term mining in the Baia Mare region is the formation of extensive Acid Mine Drainage (AMD) plumes flowing from the hills. AMD discharges into the local rivers of Baia Mare may be as high as 12,000 litres per hour and many highly visible AMD plumes run through the centre of Baia Mare from the surrounding hills. Virotec successfully treated 2 ML of AMD at Baia Mare using ViroMine™ Technology. Acid B Extra™ reagent, was applied using an in-situ aerial application treatment technique. After initial water samples were analysed,Virotec was able to deliver an environmentally sustainable and economically viable solution to treat AMD water so that it could be discharged into the environment meeting Romanian Ecosystem discharge requirements.
