However, as resources are exhausted, governments are turning to exploration in less desirable areas and proposing projects which may cause serious environmental damage. This has increasingly resulted in conflict with local communities and raises questions about how to manage and regulate the extractive industries. There are also broader debates about the risks and dangers associated with depending on a handful of commodities to sustain national economies, particularly when these are non-renewable. Even while governments pursue "extractivist" policies, innovative alternative development proposals are emerging from civil society and from governments themselves. Both the Bolivian and Ecuadorian governments have included the language and principles of vivir bien in development plans and laws. Others prioritise in-country processing of raw materials or a move away from export-based, growth-centred strategies. Another approach is simply to better regulate large-scale mining investment so as to maximise its spread effects and contribution to local development.

Mining's Contribution to Sustainable Development by Magnus Ericsson, Luleå University of Technology
In this seminar Magnus Ericsson, Consulting professor at Luleå University of Technology, Sweden, will discuss how mining can make a contribution that translates to greater well-being for the people, communities and countries where mines operate. Magnus will present how society as a whole depends on the metals this industry produces, whether the aluminium boat for a fisherman, the rare earths in a wind turbine or the chromium-cobalt steel alloys used in an artificial hip. Magnus will argue that mining has a crucial role to play in fostering sustainable development where it matters most: in the poorest countries and regions. In order for mining to act as a catalyst to economic and social development, it is however necessary for national and local political systems to have the resources and capacity to regulate and control the industry if this model shall work as envisaged.

Public Lecture_The role of the geologist in securing supplies of critical raw materials_April 2018
A Talk from Kathryn Moore, Camborne School of Mines. The raw materials supply chain does not respond rapidly enough to demand or supply shocks, which creates price volatility and potentially also supply shortage. Assessments of the security of raw materials supply have been successful at identifying which minerals and metals are most critically subject to demand-supply imbalances. Critical raw materials include the raw materials used in the development of new and/or advanced technologies and are produced in small quantities, often from a small number of mines relative to base metals, precious metals and industrial minerals. The largest companies are responding to the exhaustion of large deposits of high-grade base and precious metal ore by innovation to increase throughput and processing of low-grade ore to increase life-of-mine and investment security. Kathryn Moore, Camborne School of Mines Kate Moore gained degree qualifications in geology (BSc), experimental petrology (PhD) and archaeology (Dip) from the University of Edinburgh, University of Bristol and National University of Ireland, Galway. She led the Magmatic Studies Group at the National University of Ireland, Galway from 1999 until she moved to the Camborne School of Mines in 2012, becoming lecturer in Critical and Green Technology Metals (linking to the British Geological Survey). She is Expert Council Leader in HiTech AlkCarb (New Geomodels to explore deeper for High-Technology critical raw materials in Alkaline rocks and Carbonatites) and Project Lead for [email protected] (Integrated Modular Plant and Containerised Tools for selective, low-impact mining of small, high-grade deposits). [email protected] is hosting a session at the AIMS ‘Mines of the Future’ conference in May 2018, where project results and work in progress will be presented.

TechKnow - Deep sea gold rush
Oceans cover 70 percent of the earth's surface, but only a fraction of the undersea world has been explored. On this episode of TechKnow, Phil Torres joins a team of scientists on a special expedition to explore and uncover the mysteries at the bottom of the ocean floor. "What we are doing is similar to astronauts and planetary scientists just trying to study life on another planet," says Beth Orcutt, a senior research scientist. The journey begins in Costa Rica aboard the R/V Atlantis, a research vessel operated by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. From there, Phil gets the chance to take a dive with Alvin, a deep-water submersible capable of taking explorers down to 6,000 metres (20,000 feet) under the sea. Commissioned in 1964, Alvin has a celebrated history, locating an unexploded hydrogen bomb off the coast of Spain and exploring the famous RMS Titanic in the 1980s. Alvin and its first female pilot, Cindy Van Dover, were the first to discover hydrothermal vents, which are underwater springs where plumes of black smoke and water pour out from underneath the earth's crust. The vents were inhabited by previously unknown organisms that thrived in the absence of sunlight. After 40 years of exploration, Alvin got a high-tech upgrade. The storied submersible is now outfitted with high-resolution cameras to provide a 245-degree viewing field and a robotic arm that scientists can use to pull samples of rock and ocean life to then study back on land. But scientists are not the only ones interested in the ocean. These days the new gold rush is not in the hills, it is in the deep sea. For thousands of years miners have been exploiting the earth in search of precious metals. As resources on dry land are depleted, now the search for new sources of metals and minerals is heading underwater. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's national ocean service estimates that there is more than $150tn in gold waiting to be mined from the floor of the world's oceans. "The industry is moving very, very fast. They have far more financial resources than the scientific community," says Cindy Van Dover, Alvin's first female pilot and Duke University Oceanography Professor. Seabed mining is still in the planning stages, but Nautilus Minerals, a Canadian mining company, says it has the technology and the contracts in place with the island nation of Papua New Guinea to start mining in its waters in about two years. What is the future of seabed mining? And what are the consequences of seabed mining for the marine ecosystems?

Vladimir Litvinenko, Rector of the Mining University
I am sure that in today's discussion on the matter whether to simply invest in the extraction of raw materials or in new technologies all the same a normal world trend gains the upper hand. We must develop a strategy that will focus on investments in new technologies which involve new directions in transport, environmental use of coal, new ways of using coal as a heating fuel, new developments aimed at obtaining the liquid components in the synthesis. It should be clearly understood that nowadays the traditional harmful coal in cities, towns and regions is disappearing. In addition, coal is more transportable than gas. This means that coal business is more efficient and usage of coal in agricultural chemistry and petrochemistry is more profitable and economically attractive. This is a highly liquid business and government, supporting this sector, will receive more dividends in the form of taxes, additional jobs and, most importantly, it will be a completely new economy. I’m convinced that these are the issues that will be discussed at the meeting. And by that time, our government will feel the need to do this and I'm sure it will be so. We need to do everything in order to initiate the use of budgetary funds for the development of this industry. The future of our energy and economy is coal, I’m sure. ==== Vladimir Litvinenko, Rector of the Mining University

OEMF2015 - Day 2 - Dr Jonathan Clarke - Mining Mars
For more info on the 2nd Off Earth Mining Forum see http://www.acser.unsw.edu.au/oemf2015 - Mining Mars Mars offers many opportunities for using in situ resources to reduce the logistic overhead of human missions to the planet. Recent discoveries confirm that Mars has an abundance of water, a history of magmatism, basin development, fluid migration, regolith processes, and evolved granitoid crust that have resulted in observed localised enrichment in potential resources. Use of these potential resources would greatly facilitate Mars exploration and perhaps subsequent settlement. Identifying potential resources is therefore a priority for NASA landing site selection. Split-mission architectures may provide opportunities for commercially funded automated extraction and stockpiling of water, propellants, breathing gases, and perhaps regolith resources before the arrival of crew. Subsequent opportunities at permanent Mars research stations include fabrication of basic structures from regolith resources such as basalt and gypsum, and research into extraction of iron and magnesium. and use of hydrothermal silica and clays. Localised enrichment in base metals have been observed and potential exists for future discovery of sulphide mineralisation. These resources would not be for the development of export industries, but to support development of Mars-based infrastructure and settlement. Australian expertise in all the related fields of resource geology, exploration geophysics and geochemistry, remote area operations, mining, metallurgy, field robotics has an opportunity to make a significant contribution in the field of Mars resource utilisation at an early stage. Experience with the development of good legal frameworks for exploration, development, taxation, and environmental protection in Australia may also aid in shaping the current poorly defined legal framework for martian resources. --- Jon is an astrogeologist who completed his undergraduate and honours degree at the University of Tasmania and a PhD at Flinders University. He with a broad background in the resource, university and government sectors. Jon has spent 13 years in mineral exploration with Comalco, Seltrust, and WMC Resources with particular involvement in nickel, copper, gold, diamonds and zinc exploration in WA, SA, NT, QLD, The Philippines, and Chile.
