Regulating coal mining and reclamation in the U.S. - SMCRA and OSMRE
OSMRE (Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement) - http://www.osmre.gov - was established under The Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act (SMCRA) of 1977 - http://codes.lp.findlaw.com/uscode/30/25 This clip is from: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eaUPOI... (23 minutes) A Page In Time - Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement 1996 - Publication VID-009 - A video describing how the Surface Mining Law is implemented. === Optimism on Strip-Mine Law On the first anniversary of the Federal strip-mining law, there is hope that voluntary commitments by the top coal companies will help set the pace for compliance with the controversial environmental legislation. By Ben A. Franklin, Special to The New York Times, August 5, 1978 (Excerpts) But the conviction is growing that the bitterly controversial strip-mining law enacted a year ago to regulate how the earth is torn up and replaced to minimize environmental disruption stands a fair chance of working. In the agency assigned to administer the law, the Interior Department's new Office of Surface Mining, the reasons cited include the voluntary commitment of top executives of two big Appalachian strippers, the Pittson Company and the Falcon Coal Company, to work toward a pace-setting model of compliance in the Eastern mountain region where the enforcement problems of the office are the fiercest. Although the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act, one of the decades's major environmental measures, became law August 3, 1977, and became effective last May, the surface-mining office was held to bare skeleton of a staff borrowed from other agencies for seven months. Its first appropriation was tied up in Congress from August 1977 to last March [1978]. [The initial 28 federal inspectors were not hired until 4/9/1978; provision of the law became effective on 2/2/1978, on new coal mining operations.] So the agency's staff is still short-handed. Environmental regulations that are the cutting edge of the law are months late in publication. And of the 200 Federal strip-mine inspectors authorized, only 61 are on board. [More than half of these still being trained and not yet authorized to do inspections.] One small striper in Ohio who failed during a two-week grace period to react correctly to a routine Federal mine inspector's citation for lack of required mine roadway signs -- in effect the mine had been given a "traffic ticket" or warning -- has learned the consequences of "willful failure to comply": a mine closure order and a $750-a-day fine that may total $1500. The fine is mandatory under the law. As of last week, strip-mine operators were still learning. In 337 Federal inspections since May 4, [1978] there have been 97 notices of violations or warnings and 33 cessation orders or closures for flagrant disregard -- a noncompliance rate of 38 percent. --- COAL SURFACE MINING AND RECLAMATION: An Environmental and Economic Assessment of Alternatives (U.S. Senate report, March 1973) http://groups.google.com/group/bob-mooney/web/1973-senate-report --- Investigation: Enforcement of Strip Mining Laws, 1975 http://groups.google.com/group/bob-mooney/web/cspi-enforcement-of-strip-mining-laws-1975 (Excerpt from an editorial in The Washington Post, 1/8/1976) Because inspectors are responsible for so many operations, many sites are rarely visited. Inspections are conducted as quick surveys instead of thorough investigations...As a result of political appointments and poor field training programs, inspectors often lack the necessary technical skills for detecting violations. When an inspector is highly skilled, mining interests often lure him away with a 200 or 300 percent salary increase. Many blatant violations are never reported to the state central enforcement office. A wide variety of industry favors are available to cooperative inspectors. On the other hand, some diligent inspectors have encountered personal threats and beatings. The study has created controversy in the coalfields as could have been predicted; any suggestion that coal companies are something less than public-spirited citizens rushing to save America in the energy crisis is sure to be met in some quarters with hostile criticism. It is significant, though, that soon after the study's appearance, Kentucky's highest-ranking strip mine official was fired. In Washington, Rep. John Seiberling (D-Ohio) believes that "this study gives us the ammunition to write effective legislation." That may well be needed, considering that this year's [1976] effort to get strip mining provisions added onto another bill have almost been spent. If anything, the documentation of coalfield abuses strengthens the case for strong federal controls. --- OSMRE in its early years -- Interivew with regional director Ed Imhoff, 1980 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vLg_MywIiKY

Let's Blast!
NOTE: Although this video shows an up-close look at the blasting process, NEVER go near an active surface mine or blast site without Federal training and permission. FYI, the white bags are Emulsified Ammonium Nitrate. The read cap is TNT and the silver rod that is connected to it by the yellow wire is the blasting cap, it's what ignites the shot. The white pebbles that are emptied into the blast holes by the powder trucks are the main explosive- "ANFO" or Ammonium Nitrate, which is a mixture of fertilizer and diesel fuel. Once the holes are filled with explosives, rock fines or "stemming" is pushed back in the holes and packed down to keep the explosives under pressure. After all the holes are loaded and rigged up, it's time for the fireworks! And remember kids, don't try this at home! Want to see more Blasting?

Abandoned Mined Land (AML) reclamation program for former coal mines
A national program to remediate safety and environmental hazards from past coal mining was created by the passage of federal law -- The Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977 (SMCRA). SMCRA, Title 4, Abandoned Mined Land Reclamation http://codes.lp.findlaw.com/uscode/30/25/IV The administering agency is the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSMRE or OSM) within the U.S. Department of the Interior. See: http://www.osmre.gov/aml/AML.shtm More about SMCRA and OSMRE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8uq7YI8AHnQ Abandoned Mines: Stay out, stay alive: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7EsZqik612U (I was with OSM from April 1978 to May 1995; this helped get me to leave): On the night of March 4, 1995, an entire eastbound lane of Interstate 70 in Guernsey County, Ohio suddenly collapsed into a 10-foot crater swallowing a car and nearly several others plus a semi-truck --- the entire interstate being closed for six months until $4.4 million in repairs were made. On September 15, 1994, Robert Mooney, an acting field director for the federal Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement, had sent the state a letter expressing concern for a worsening situation. The state ignored his request for an investigation of voids in the abandoned coal mines beneath the highway. More: http://groups.google.com/group/bob-mooney/web/i-70-collapse 1/13/2011 - Interstate-72 bridge damaged by mine subsidence http://www.sj-r.com/carousel/x512656240/I-72-bridge-damaged-by-mine-subsidence (Excerpts) A routine bridge inspection last fall showed damage from mine subsidence under the bridge on the east side of the river, said Illinois Department of Transportation spokesman Josh Kauffman. He said the subsidence has had "a very slight impact" on the bridge, which was built in 1974. "It is still able to carry the loads it was built for," Kauffman said. "It is a very small dip." IDOT is coordinating efforts with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources' Office of Mines and Minerals. "We have devised a plan to stabilize the structure by drilling a series of bore holes to the depth of the abandoned mine and injecting a concrete grout mixture to fill any voids left from coal mining operations," Kauffman said. Department of Natural Resources spokesman Chris McCloud said the agency's Abandoned Mined Land Reclamation Division said a DNR contractor will be at the bridge Monday, weather permitting, to begin filling the area east of the river with concrete.

Joy Global 2650CX Komatsu Hybrid Shovel Massive Surface Mining Machine
Hybrid shovels P&H 2650CX 59 mt/ 65 st nominal payload 31.1 m3 / 40.7 yd3 nominal bucket capacity for hard rock Ideal for loading 135 to 360t (150 to 400st) haul trucks Designed for coal, copper, gold, and iron ore applications Diesel-electric powered with JOY SR hybrid (switch reluctance) drive technology, reducing fuel consumption by as much as 25% 10-15% reduction in total cost of ownership when compared to similar-sized hydraulic excavators The 2650CX hybrid shovel features a ground-breaking combination of diesel and electric power to provide the best of both electric mining shovels and hydraulic excavators. The hybrid architecture provides the following advantages: Multiple dig paths High initial breakout force using an articulating clamshell bucket Flat floor clean-up High selectivity Less fuel required for digging Joy SR hybrid drive (switch reluctance) technology captures regenerative power Fixed boom architecture reduces the mass to hoist Extended reach Increased safety through machine position relative to bank Increased range for truck spotting Capable of double side-loading Reduced propel time Mobility Twin diesel engines eliminate requirement for electrical cable Reductions in total cost of ownership The 2650CX is designed to deliver a 10 to 15% reduction in total cost of ownership (as compared to hydraulic excavators), including the following: Up to 25% reduction in fuel consumption Up to 3% availability advantage Up to 5-10% reduction in maintenance and repair costs Key features and benefits Safety Cab is equipped with features that contribute to a safer and more productive operator experience. Ergonomic controls and overall cab layout Intuitive displays Comfortable seat configuration Extended reach allows more truck spotting clearance and place the operator further from the bank High visibility interior and exterior LED lighting MGD-15 and MSHA standards incorporated throughout design Maintainability Organized house/deck layouts Open roof architecture for safe and efficient component change-outs Modular systems pre-assembled in a controlled factory environment Internal access into major structures Retractable service station for easy, safe and convenient fluid refills Flexibility Hydraulically articulated clamshell bucket for increased selectivity and breakout forces Twin diesel engines for increased mobility Eliminates trail cable management activities Truck ranges 135-360t (150-400st) Reliability SR Hybrid Drive technology designed and manufactured in-house JoySmart solutions enabled Proven fixed boom and twin handle systems for superior digging and reach capabilities Up to 50% fewer hydraulic components onboard than traditional hydraulic excavators Electric motors control main motions - hoist, swing and crowds Combining the availability of its industry-leading rope shovels with the mobility and flexibility of a hybrid excavator, Joy Global launched its new P&H 2650CX hybrid shovel at MINExpo INTERNATIONAL®2016 in Las Vegas. The concept for this first-of-its kind machine was introduced at MINExpo 2012 as an alternative to 550t-700t hydraulic excavators, which will reduce total cost of ownership by 10%-15%. This cost advantage is comprised of: Up to a 25% reduction in fuel consumption 5%-10% reduction in maintenance and repair costs 1%-3% increase in availability These savings are enabled in a large part by the JOY SR Hybrid Drive system, which was transitioned to the design of the 2650CX from P&H Generation 2 wheel loaders. Switched reluctance (SR) technology captures the energy naturally regenerated in swing deceleration and hoist lowering. The low maintenance SR motors act like generators to capture and distribute energy back into the systems powering the machine’s main motions, which reduces the use of hydraulics and significantly decreases diesel fuel consumption. Robust structures and the twin handle, rack and pinion crowd system proven on P&H shovels have been leveraged to increase reliability. The hydraulically articulated clamshell bucket allows the machine to dig in low benches and to increase breakout forces throughout the bank. Its payload capacity of 59t enables a four-pass match to 220t haul trucks and will accommodate trucks ranging from 135t to 360t. The pilot machine is currently working in a production environment at ASARCO Mission Mine, a copper application in Arizona.

Buca Della Vena Mine – Part 5: Breaking Out To The Sunset (Final)
It was a pleasant surprise to discover all of those openings to the outside world at the top of the mine. Running across multiple open adits as we experienced at this mine is far less likely to happen in our Sierra Nevadas where most abandoned mines are eroded shut. However, one is more likely to have the abandoned mine gods smile upon them in Nevada where there are abundant mines and dry conditions. The lack of vegetation makes the mines much easier to spot and the lack of water makes the mines far less likely to be eroded shut. In the mountains, the biggest threat to abandoned mines is the water that causes them to cave and erode shut. Closely behind water, the Forest Service is the next biggest threat to abandoned mines in the mountains. In the desert, the biggest danger for historical abandoned mines is definitely the BLM, Forest Service, et al that are aggressively and purposefully destroying this part of our heritage for self-serving reasons. The second biggest threat to abandoned mines in the desert is probably geology itself. Adits and shafts that run through unstable ground invariably cave regardless of the presence of water or not. Of course, we have unstable ground in the mountains as well. This is often found inside of the underground placer mines since the sand and gravel in the ancient river channels does not support itself well once a cavity (in the form of an adit, stope or shaft) has been created. Those of you that have been with us for a while have seen plenty of examples of this (the Ruby Mine being perhaps the most memorable). I’m not sure how the miners accessed those upper portals or workings as I find it unlikely that they scrambled up the stopes as I did. However, those portals to the outside also seem unlikely as they were situated in an awkward position for access relative to the other workings and surface buildings we encountered. So, perhaps these were older workings? It is difficult to say. This series is now complete... I hope you enjoyed watching it as much as I enjoyed exploring and documenting it. As I said previously, this is the best abandoned mine I have ever explored. I would love to come across an abandoned mine that tops this one, but we have visited hundreds of abandoned mines now and this remains the best (so far). ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference. You can see the gear that I use for mine exploring here: https://bit.ly/2wqcBDD You can click here for my full playlist of abandoned mines: https://goo.gl/TEKq9L Thanks for watching! ***** Growing up in California’s “Gold Rush Country” made it easy to take all of the history around us for granted. However, abandoned mine sites have a lot working against them – nature, vandals, scrappers and various government agencies… The old prospectors and miners that used to roam our lonely mountains and toil away deep underground are disappearing quickly as well. These losses finally caught our attention and we felt compelled to make an effort to document as many of the ghost towns and abandoned mines that we could before that colorful niche of our history is gone forever. But, you know what? We enjoy doing it! This is exploring history firsthand – bushwhacking down steep canyons and over rough mountains, figuring out the techniques the miners used and the equipment they worked with, seeing the innovations they came up with, discovering lost mines that no one has been in for a century, wandering through ghost towns where the only sound is the wind... These journeys allow a feeling of connection to a time when the world was a very different place. And I’d love to think that in some small way we are paying tribute to those hardy miners that worked these mines before we were even born. So, yes, in short, we are adit addicts… I hope you’ll join us on these adventures! #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundMineExploring

In addition to ensuring that mines are reclaimed as America's coal energy is produced, SMCRA also provides for reclamation at sites abandoned before passage of the act. In the past thirty-one years all AML reclamation has eliminated safety and environmental hazards while creating useful land on over 314,108 acres.

Thermoplastic road marking project performed by Swedish company EKC Service AB http://www.ekc.se/ How much does it costs? Each white mark costs around 1 SEK ($0,08)! And each meter of the ViaTherm thermoplastic material road marking lines costs around 70 SEK ($7) / Meter (10 feet)! In this project they used a new thermal material called HotMix. The material is supplied ready to use without the admixture of any other component. HotMix quickly hardens after application, thereby minimizing traffic disturbance. Neither the organic pigments nor the other components of ViaTherm or HotMix thermoplastic road marking are harmful to the environment. Thermoplastic HotMix material at 200 Degree C being used for road marking lines for cars and pedestrians, project in Stockholm-Sweden! These two truck drivers are amazing and perform a great teamwork everyday across the city in order to keep a high standard of traffic security. Most of the projects starts after midnight or during vacation period so there are less traffic on roads. To keep the roads and traffic secure is one of the most expensive tasks for the tax payer in Sweden. More about this project: One of the latest major advancements in truck-mounted striper technology is the data acquisition systems, or paint and bead monitoring systems. Data acquisition systems give the truckdriver and operator a real-time readout of what he's putting down, as far as gallons of paint being applied per mile and glass beads per gallon of paint. The information is presented as a graph on a computer screen or a series of lights on a display, with green meaning you're on target and red meaning you have to adjust your system to reach your application goals. This GPS command system keeps the truck at straight line, position, control and speed. Data acquisition systems can help contractors and government agencies alike save money and create a quality stripe for the end customer. - Replacing old and damaged asphalt with new one at both side of the road (each side with 2 lanes). - Old asphalt transports away and became new asphalt. It will either be bring back here and reuses in this project or will be use somewhere else in upcoming projects. - Street and road asphalt paving, and road construction with 3 layers of expensive and durable asphalt! - Installation of 4 traffic light sensors at 4 locations with different distance to each traffic light and cross road, using DIMAS FS 400 CS saw.

U.S. Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement - OSMRE
Since its creation under the federal Surface Coal Mining and Reclamation Act of 1977 (August 3), the agency has been known as Office of Surface Mining or just OSM. It has a very storied history - http://groups.google.com/group/bob-mooney/web/osmre-timeline Joe Pizarchark has been the OSM Director since November 6, 2009, having now outlasted many of its 17 previous directors -- and being only the 10th director to actually be confirmed by the U.S. Senate. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fSxyjLcXpjU Director Pizarchik has undertaken a Stream Saver Protection initative that will require years to promulgate and more years to fight legal battles to achieve implementation which will also take many years to get amended into the state regulatory programs, (In 2010, some changes made after 1983 have yet to be amended into the state programs.) http://www.osmre.gov/topic/StreamProtection/StreamProtectionOverview.shtm Efforts to conduct oversight more effectively on state, tribal and fedeal regulatory programs began in June 2009 and proposed improvements are pending. http://www.osmre.gov/topic/Oversight/SCM/SCM.shtm OSM now focuses on awards to reclamation awards to coal companies and to State Abandonend Mine Land Programs - http://www.osmre.gov/topic/awards/Awards.shtm - more so than on providing required annual reports to Congress - http://www.osmre.gov/Reports/AnnualReport/AnnualReport.shtm - and doing timely evaluation reports on state and federal regulatory programs - http://www.osmre.gov/Reports/EvalInfo/EvalInfo.shtm OSM has recently undertaken efforts to identify unresolved issues, like the Ohio State regulatory program that remains only conditionally approved since August 1982 and continual sillage of coal waste slurry like this - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r8rdo6LNtmE OSM has not had a staff directory for years. Recently its three regions created staff lists - http://www.arcc.osmre.gov/ http://www.mcrcc.osmre.gov/ http://www.wrcc.osmre.gov/ An agency-wide staff directory is now under development.. Currently, There are about 500 OSM employees compared to nearly 1200 in 1980. More than half of its current employees are each paid more than $100,000 a year and over $200,000 in total compensation when health and other fringe benefits are included. http://groups.google.com/group/bob-mooney/web/osmre-staffing-levels === The Initial 28 OSM inspectors, started on April 9, 1978 http://groups.google.com/group/bob-mooney/web/osmre-pioneers http://groups.google.com/group/bob-mooney/web/osm-people Federal Strip Mine Law, first year - The New York Times, June 12,1978 http://groups.google.com/group/bob-mooney/web/osm-first-year Photo: First OSM director with his deputy and assistant directors, 1980 Ray Lowrie, Pat Boggs, Carl Close, Dave Short, Director Walter Heine, Tony Head, Ed Imhoff, Don Crane, Paul Reeves, Dick Hall and Chuck Beasley http://tinyurl.com/OSM-founders-1980 OSM Directory, June 1978 (139 employees; 6 are still there) http://groups.google.com/group/bob-mooney/web/1978-osm-directory http://groups.google.com/group/bob-mooney/web/osm-inspectors-past-and-present Walter Heine's reflections, 1997 http://groups.google.com/group/bob-mooney/web/walter-heines-reflections-1997
