Walkabout Resources first to receive mining licence under new Tanzanian legislation
Walkabout Resources Ltd (ASX:WKT) non-executive director Andrew Cunningham updates Proactive Investors on the graphite company’s grant of a Tanzanian mining licence, and the planned development to bring its Lindi Jumbo Graphite Project into production. “We are the first ASX-listed company to get our mining licence under the new Tanzanian legislation, to say we’re excited is probably the understatement of the century,” Cunningham says. Granting of the mining licence allows Walkabout to further progress advanced project funding options. The project hosts a JORC 2012-compliant measured, indicated and inferred mineral resource of 29.8 million tonnes at an estimated grade of 10.9 % total graphitic carbon (TGC). This resource contains a super high-grade core of 4.7 million tonnes at 22.8% TGC for 1,076,500 tonnes of contained graphite, making it the highest mineable graphite resource in Tanzania.
Brazil opens Amazon mining: Government opens RENCA reserve for mining - TomoNews
BRAZIL — The Brazilian government has opened up a vast part of an Amazonian national reserve to mining. President Michel Timer removed the protective status of the National Reserve of Copper and Associates (RENCA), which straddles the Brazilian states of Amapa and Para, CNBC reported. The area covers 46,000 sq kms (17,800 sq miles) and is believed to be rich in gold, copper, iron and other minerals. Brazil has opened up 30 percent of the reserve, and said that mining would only be permitted in areas with no conservation controls or indigenous lands. The government plans to open up 10 percent of all protected rainforest areas to mining in an attempt to encourage growth, CNN reported. A report published last week by the World Wild Fund for Nature (WWF) stated that mining in the area would cause "demographic explosion, deforestation, the destruction of water resources, the loss of biodiversity and the creation of land conflict," according to CNN. The Rainforest Foundation estimates approximately 1 acre is destroyed every second in the Amazon, and an estimated 20 percent of the rainforest has been destroyed over the past four decades. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

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

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?

Amadiba vs Minister of Minerals on Right2SayNO Court Proceedings
The indigenous Amadiba Community who live along the Pondoland Wild Coast, have been opposing the award of mining rights by the SA Government to an Australian mining company MRC over their ancestral lands for two decades. Since 1996 Australian mining entrepreneur Mark Caruso has been coveting the heavy mineral deposits. His ambitions became public in 2007 when his first mining rights application was lodged. That precipitated the formation of The Amadiba Crisis Committee to deal with the crisis MRC had caused. The crisis has been ongoing every since, because the Department of Mineral Resources has sided with the mining company against the people, and because the Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act nationalises mineral wealth but fails to do justice to the ramifications that has for the land rights of rural communities with communal land tenure. This is PART ONE of the court proceedings which took place from 23-24 April 2018. Advocate Thembeka Ngcukaitobi explains the case brought by the Amadiba residents to seek a declaratory order to affirm their right to consent. He argues that in terms of the Interim Protection of InformalLand Rights Act, amaMpondo Customary Law and International Law his clients have the right to Free Prior and Informed consent to disallow mining rights to take effect, if that is what a significant majority of directly affected residents wish. The existing requirement of "consultation" is simply not good enough in terms of the benchmarks required by the Bill of Rights entrenched in the Constitution. The Amadiba have repeatedly said "NO" to mining, but the Minister of Minerals wont take no for an answer. The Amadiba hope that the Court will oblige him to now accept that, and allow peace to return.

Follow us: Website: http://inhabitants-tv.org/ Facebook: facebook.com/inhabitantstv/ YouTube: youtube.com/channel/UCt0fB6C18nwzRwdudiC8sGg instagram: inhabitants_tv #inhabitants Written by anthropologist Stefan Helmreich, What is Deep Sea Mining? Episode 2: Deep Frontiers is a brief history about knowledge of the deep sea and its resources. It highlights the ambiguity of this history, as depictions of the deep changed throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Today, this knowledge informs discussions about the commercialization of biological and geological resources, with the deep sea fast becoming a zone of international dispute, opening up a debate about sustainable practices at sea. What is Deep Sea Mining? is a five episode web series dedicated to the topic of deep sea mining, a new frontier of resource extraction at the bottom of the ocean, set to begin in the next few years. Deep sea mining will occur mainly in areas rich in polymetallic nodules, in seamounts, and in hydrothermal vents. Mining companies are already leasing areas in national and international waters in order to extract minerals and metals such as manganese, cobalt, gold, copper, iron, and other rare earth elements from the seabed. Main sites targeted for future exploration are the mid-atlantic ridge and the Clarion Clipperton Zone (Pacific ocean) in international waters, as well as the islands of Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Tonga, New Zealand, Japan, and the Portuguese Azores archipelago. Yet, potential impacts on deep sea ecosystems are yet to be assessed by the scientific community, and local communities are not being consulted. The prospects of this new, experimental form of mining are re-actualizing a colonial, frontier mentality and redefining extractivist economies for the twenty-first century. This web series addresses different issues related to this process, from resource politics to ocean governance by international bodies, prompting today’s shift towards a "blue economy" but also efforts to defend sustained ocean literacy when the deep ocean, its species, and resources remain largely unmapped and unstudied. Stefan Helmreich is Professor of Anthropology at MIT. He is the author of Alien Ocean: Anthropological Voyages in Microbial Seas, and, most recently, of Sounding the Limits of Life: Essays in the Anthropology of Biology and Beyond (Princeton University Press, 2016). His essays have appeared in Critical Inquiry, Representations, American Anthropologist, Cabinet, and The Wire. What is Deep Sea Mining? is developed in collaboration with Margarida Mendes, curator and activist from Lisbon, Portugal, and founding member of Oceano Livre environmental movement against deep sea mining. It was commissioned and funded by TBA21 - Academy and premiered at the 2018 New Museum Triennial: Songs for Sabotage.

Goldberg is credited with turning Newmont’s performance around through a disciplined focus on value over volume. The company now leads the gold sector in value creation and growth potential. This performance is the result of successful efforts to improve underlying costs, efficiencies and technical performance; to optimize the company’s asset portfolio and growth pipeline; and to strengthen the balance sheet. Newmont has also reduced its injury rates by 52 percent, improved its social and environmental standards and practices, and increased female and national representation in its workforce under Goldberg’s leadership. He received a lifetime achievement award for his contribution to safety in the mining industry from the Society of Metallurgical Engineers in 2014.

Prior to this appointment, Goldberg served as President and CEO of US Borax. During his tenure, Borax was twice named the safest large mining operation in the United States by the federal Mine Safety & Health Administration and became the first mining company to receive the California Governor’s Environmental and Economic Leadership Award.
