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.

Toxic Waste in the US: Coal Ash (Full Length)
 
24:30
Coal ash, which contains many of the world's worst carcinogens, is what's left over when coal is burnt for electricity. An estimated 113 million tons of coal ash are produced annually in the US, and stored in almost every state — some of it literally in people's backyards. With very little government oversight and few safeguards in place, toxic chemicals have been known to leak from these storage sites and into nearby communities, contaminating drinking water and making residents sick. VICE News travels across the US to meet the people and visit the areas most affected by this toxic waste stream. Since coal production is predicted to remain steady for the next few decades, coal ash will be a problem that will affect the US for years to come.

How Does Mining Affect the Environment? You'll Be Shocked to Know
 
03:40
Find more effects of mining right here: http://www.buzzle.com/articles/how-does-mining-affect-the-environment.html Mining is the source of all the substances that cannot be obtained by industrial processes or through agriculture. 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.

The Hidden Truth Behind Sweden's Waste Disposal Infrastructure
 
26:08
To Burn or Not to Burn: In Sweden, waste incineration plants convert excess and non-recycled rubbish into energy. The Swedish government classifies this process as recycling, but is this form of waste disposal really sustainable? Subscribe to Journeyman here: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=journeymanpictures At a waste incineration plant in Västerås, Sweden, sixty tonnes of waste are burnt every hour, converting it into energy for electricity and hot water. Sweden has 34 waste-to-energy furnaces and the country makes over $100 million a year importing and burning waste from other countries. “We see it as a kind of recycling”, says Jocke Hook, who works at the Västerås plant. Yet much of the waste burnt is plastic and, as Professor Goran Finnveden explains, "if you incinerate plastic you get carbon dioxide emissions”. Indeed Joan-Marc Simon of Zero Waste Europe believes that the number of incinerators will soon fall. "We’re going to see incinerators closing down in Europe because they’re going to have less waste to burn and recycling is going to go up.” For more information, visit https://www.journeyman.tv/film/7409 Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/journeymanpictures Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/JourneymanNews https://twitter.com/JourneymanVOD Follow us on Instagram: https://instagram.com/journeymanpictures Visit our subreddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/JourneymanPictures/ Say hi on tumblr: https://journeymanpictures.tumblr.com/ ABC Australia – Ref. 7409

This report investigates what is being named the biggest disaster in Brazil's mining history. A horror mudslide swept through the towns and villages in the Gualaxo River Valley, destroying homes, businesses and taking the lives of 19 people. A tailings dam, holding back more than 50 million cubic metres of mining waste collapsed, unleashing a wave of mud several metres high. "The mud dragged me down, I would come up, it would take me down again... I screamed but nobody answered", remembers Priscila Barros, who was pulled four kilometers under the deadly slurry. The mud, containing lead, arsenic and other toxic chemicals, continued down river all the way to the Atlantic coast 600km away. "This mud wave has killed anything that was alive in these water systems", explains Marilene Ramos of the Brazilian Environment Authority. Now Brazilian police are seeking the arrest of 12 of Samarco's executives for negligent homicide and crimes against the environment. "A dam doesn't break by chance. There is repeated, continual negligence in the actions of a company owned by Vale and BHP", says prosecutor Carlos Eduardo Pinto.

Is Urban Mining the future? 

 - VPRO documentary
 
47:24
What is Urban Mining and will Urban Mining shape the future of recycling? Has Urban Mining the power to change mobile phones into gold? And if so, how does Urban Mining work? This documentary shows where our e-waste goes, how we can avoid filthy garbage hills and what for business opportunities recycling can offer. Besides the Scheldt river, under the smoke of Antwerp you can find the company of Umicore. The terrain is 113 hectares and around 1600 peoples work there and are busy with mining. The company is extremely well structured and efficient. They dig in electronic waste or e-waste and look for precious metals such as gold, platinum, silver and base metals as copper and led. This new form of mining is called Urban Mining. It is estimated that Urban Mining can cover up to 40% of global demand of precious metals. Our waste is worth money. Recovering it has started up a new global industry worth billions. It is called Urban Mining and it appears to be the solution for many of our environmental problems and our energy needs. And it is hot. A ton of broken mobile phones, computers or other electronic waste contains sixty times the amount of gold a ton of gold ore has. Moreover, it is easier to get at. It is estimated that 30 to 40 percent of total world demand for rare metals can be covered by urban mining and this is only the beginning. Urban Mining has a different, almost hilarious consequence: for years we have dumped our electronic waste in developing countries, with our eyes closed. There, it was to be recycled. But in Africa only one quarter of the gold, platinum and coltan is recovered whereas the newest technology in Belgium recovers almost 99 percent. So somewhere there’s a profit to be made. The NGO ‘Closing the Loop’ is buying up dead mobile phones and computer parts that we have dumped in developing countries making our waste a desirable sales item over there.

http://www.undergroundworldnews.com Some 10 million cubic meters of water and 4.5 million cubic meters of fine sand from the tailings pond of the Mount Polley copper and gold mine spilled over into lakes and creeks in the area on Monday, according to a statement by the British Columbia’s Environment Minister Bill Bennett, released the following day. The waste waters that are now out in the wild are likely to contain lead, arsenic, zinc, mercury and phosphorus, as that’s what 2013 research found in the pond, according to a report from Environment Canada. The water is currently being tested for possible contamination. Meanwhile, 300 people living in the affected area have been warned not to drink local water and also to keep pets and livestock away from it. http://rt.com/news/178320-canada-mine-tailings-breach/

88,000 tons of radioactive waste – and nowhere to put it

The United States produces 2,200 tons of nuclear waste each year…and no one knows what to do with it. The federal government has long promised, but never delivered, a safe place for nuclear power plants to store their spent fuel. This means that radioactive waste is piling up all over the country. We visited one of the worst places where the waste is stuck: a beachside power plant uncomfortably close to both San Diego and Los Angeles. And we asked the people in charge of the waste there: what happens now?

Dr. Michel Aubertin: Mine Wastes Management @RIME Part 2
 
23:40
Dr. Michel Aubertin continues his keynote presentation at the Tailings and Mine Waste conference by completing his description of the hydrology and hydraulic conductivities of rock waste piles (the impact of inclining compacted layers). He describes what "diversion length" means in getting infiltration water directed to the non-reactive material at the edge of the waste rock pile. Benches and exposed terraces are the new concepts being explored. Cemented paste backfill (returning waste rock and tailings to underground mines) is discussed, as well as the effect of the filling rate. Aubertin explains: oxidation of tailings has shown that reactive tailings can be used as backfill; the geotechnical behaviour of sludges in impoundments has been described. He also discusses a variety of work on covers on top of tailings to prevent oxidation of reactive tailings (to eliminate acid mine drainage). He discusses the submerged water table model for long term storage of reactive tailings versus water cap tailings ponds and summarizes the projects ongoing at RIME. Dr. Aubertin's keynote presentation was a part of the Tailings and Mine Waste conference in Banff, Alberta on November 5, 2013.

The Toxic E-Waste Trade Killing Pakistan's Poorest
 
28:12
The E-Waste Curse: The deadly effect of dumping E-waste in Pakistan Pakistan has become an illegal dumping ground for some of the 50 million tons of e-waste created each year. Karachi's poor earn a living from the toxic detritus, but the vicious cycle of consumption could prove fatal. In Pakistan, the massive arrival of electronic waste has created an informal substance economy that feeds 150,000 people. The country's poor salvage what they can from the cast-offs of the electronic revolution: copper, steel, brass. Nassir is one who has cashed in on the opportunities found in old cables and hard-drives. "It’s a good business. I have more and more work", he says. Yet workers pay the price for a few grams of copper; 4 million people die every year because of electronic waste and recycling workers have the lowest life expectancy in Pakistan. In his recycling shop, Akhbar earns 2€ on a good day. It feeds his family of six, but his health has suffered. "This job is dangerous. It’s very toxic". And the toxic legacy is far-reaching - "It’s a catastrophe...especially for the children", warns Saba, an activist for the WWF. "They will continue to live here and be poisoned, it’s dangerous for them and it’s dangerous for the next generations". In our relentlessly consumerist world, can the global poor be saved from the toxic trade in e-waste?

Coal ash, which contains many of the world's worst carcinogens, is what's left over when coal is burnt for electricity. An estimated 113 million tons of coal ash are produced annually in the US, and stored in almost every state — some of it literally in people's backyards. With very little government oversight and few safeguards in place, toxic chemicals have been known to leak from these storage sites and into nearby communities, contaminating drinking water and making residents sick. On February 2, 2014, up to 39,000 tons of coal ash and 27 million gallons of contaminated water spilled out into the Dan River in North Carolina after a pipe broke underneath a coal ash pond at a Duke Energy power plant. The environmental disaster thrust Duke Energy, the country’s largest electricity company, into the spotlight, revealing a history of violations and inadequate oversight of ponds at all of its plants across the state. In part one, VICE News travels to North Carolina to visit a river that’s been poisoned with arsenic from a nearby Duke Energy site, speak with a resident who has found toxic heavy metals in her drinking water, and question a Duke Energy spokesperson about the power company’s policies.

President Trump signs a resolution to roll back the Obama administration's midnight regulations on the coal industry. The resolution was passed by the Senate and House using special powers under the Congressional Review Act to reverse regulations. Trump said the repeal "will eliminate another terrible job-killing rule, saving thousands of American jobs, especially in the mines." The resolution repeals the Interior Department's Stream Protection Rule, which bans mining companies from putting waste in streams.

What does MINING ENGINEERING mean? MINING ENGINEERING meaning - MINING ENGINEERING definition - MINING ENGINEERING explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. 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. Mining Engineers in India are earning relatively high salaries in comparison to many other professions. The average salary for a Mining Engineer in India is $15,250. However, the salaries are always highly determined by the level of skill, where the organisation is based and which organisation you are working for. In comparison to salaries of Mining Engineer’s working in other regions, such as Canada, the United States, Australia and the United Kingdom, the salaries are dismal, however when comparing salaries from one region to another, there are many factors that need to be taken into consideration, such as the cost of living etc.In the United States, there are an estimated 6,630 employed mining engineers. The mean yearly salary for a mining engineer in the U.S. is $90,070 .

War on mine waste
 
16:01
Over billions of years the earth has created spectacular landforms. So too has mankind, but, in a fraction of the time. One difference? Materials. The earth used sediments and rock to create vast mountain ranges, submarine fans, dunes, deltas and way more. We instead use mining wastes, scrap metals, food and plastics and have created very different ecosystems. In recognition of these anthropogenic impacts, the United Nations established the Sustainable Development Goals, comprising seventeen goals for the global community to achieve by 2030. Improving our approach to waste and resource management feature in these. So what can we do? SOMETHING! ‘Waste is a design flaw’. Every product is made up of elements, compounds and minerals and it is in these terms that we need to think. In this video two types of waste, mining and food, are shown. Can they be joined in matrimony to produce a more sustainable tomorrow and help us on our crusade for a zero waste society? Spend a few moments to take a mine waste journey and contemplate your own relationship with metals. (video credits to Keith Deverell)
