Originally a public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mining Wikipedia license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ Mining is the extraction of valuable minerals or other geological materials from the earth from an orebody, lode, vein, seam, or reef, which forms the mineralized package of economic interest to the miner. Ores recovered by mining include metals, coal and oil shale, gemstones, limestone, and dimension stone, rock salt and potash, gravel, and clay. Mining is required to obtain any material that cannot be grown through agricultural processes, or created artificially in a laboratory or factory. Mining in a wider sense includes extraction of any non-renewable resource such as petroleum, natural gas, or even water. Mining of stone and metal has been done since pre-historic times. Modern mining processes involve prospecting for ore bodies, analysis of the profit potential of a proposed mine, extraction of the desired materials, and final reclamation of the land after the mine is closed. The nature of mining processes creates a potential negative impact on the environment both during the mining operations and for years after the mine is closed. This impact has led to most of the world's nations adopting regulations to moderate the negative effects of mining operations. Safety has long been a concern as well, and modern practices have improved safety in mines significantly... Mining in the United States became prevalent in the 19th century, and the General Mining Act of 1872 was passed to encourage mining of federal lands. As with the California Gold Rush in the mid 19th century, mining for minerals and precious metals, along with ranching, was a driving factor in the Westward Expansion to the Pacific coast. With the exploration of the West, mining camps were established and "expressed a distinctive spirit, an enduring legacy to the new nation;" Gold Rushers would experience the same problems as the Land Rushers of the transient West that preceded them. Aided by railroads, many traveled West for work opportunities in mining. Western cities such as Denver and Sacramento originated as mining towns. As new areas were explored, it was usually the gold (placer and then load) and then silver that were taken first, with other metals often waiting for railroads or canals. Coarse gold dust and nuggets do not require smelting, is easy to identify and is easily transported. Modern period In the early 20th century, the gold and silver rush to the western United States also stimulated mining for base metals such as copper, lead, and iron as well as coal. Areas in modern Montana, Utah, Arizona, and later Alaska became predominate suppliers of copper to the world, which was increasingly demanding copper for electrical and households goods. Canada's mining industry grew more slowly than the United States due to limitations in transportation, capital, and U.S. competition; Ontario was the major producer of the early 20th century with nickel, copper, and gold. Meanwhile, Australia experienced the Australian gold rushes and by the 1850s was producing 40% of the world's gold, followed by the establishment of large mines such as the Mount Morgan Mine, which ran for nearly a hundred years, Broken Hill ore deposit (one of the largest zinc-lead ore deposits), and iron ore mines at Iron Knob. After declines in production, another boom in mining occurred in the 1960s and in the 21st century Australia remains a major world mineral producer. Into the 21st century, a globalized mining industry of large multinational corporations has arisen. Peak minerals and environmental impacts have also become a concern. Different elements, particularly rare earth minerals, have begun to increase in demand as a result of new technologies...

US invaded Afghanistan to exploit its vast mineral resources: Scholar

The 2001 invasion of Afghanistan and following occupation by the United States was largely to protect the country’s opium cultivation and exploit its vast mineral resources, particularly the deposits of lithium, according to James Henry Fetzer, an American academic who has been studying the events of 9/11 since late 2001. Fetzer, who is also a journalist with Veterans Truth Network and a retired professor in Madison, Wisconsin, told Press TV on Sunday that “Afghanistan had nothing to do with 9/11.” Watch Live: http://www.presstv.com/live.html YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/videosptv/ Twitter: http://twitter.com/PressTV LiveLeak: http://www.liveleak.com/c/PressTV Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/PRESSTV Google+: http://plus.google.com/+VideosPTV Instagram: http://instagram.com/presstvchannel

In 2007, the United States Geological Survey published an assessment of the non-fuel mineral resources of Afghanistan, along with a supporting GIS database. This open-file report updated and greatly expanded upon previous such reports, such as this one from 2002. We imported both the 2002 and the 2007 U.S.G.S. data into Palantir, integrating it with an existing Palantir instance on the Afghan insurgency, in order to investigate the accessibility of Afghanistan's natural resources from the point of view of the country's violence.

United States Gold Mining Claim - Arizona - 2017
 
03:49
The United States mine is located just outside of Cottonwood, Arizona, in the North Verde Mining District. The mine was worked as an open pit, therfore there are no underground workings. The mine has an extensive history of production and a massive amount of work was done at the site. Historically, the United States mine was worked for gold, copper, and silver, and the entire area is littered with copper ore. The ores are rich and in good supply, but will need to be processed in bulk to be profitable.

Why Isn't Congo as Rich as Saudi Arabia? Massive Tax Evasion

The Democratic Republic of the Congo is rich in natural resources, yet the average citizen lives on only 72 cents a day. The foreign mining companies are getting rich while the general population is living in poverty. Many Congolese citizens are diging through the dirt on their hands and knees in search their fair share of the countries natural minerals. While there are taxes on the mining companies who benefit from the countries resources it is proving difficult to actually collect the money that is owed. Vocativ spoke to one tax inspector who explained that tax evasion and government fraud is rampant throughout the mining industry. So it seems that until those benefiting from the countries natural wealth start paying their fare share, many average citizens will have to continue digging through the mud to get by.

Trump Finds Reason for the U.S. to Remain in Afghanistan Minerals President Trump, searching for a reason to keep the United States in Afghanistan after 16 years of war, has latched on to a prospect that tantalized previous administrations: Afghanistan’s vast mineral wealth, which his advisers and Afghan officials have told him could be profitably extracted by Western companies. Mr. Trump has discussed the country’s mineral deposits with President Ashraf Ghani, who promoted mining as an economic opportunity in one of their first conversations. Mr. Trump, who is deeply skeptical about sending more American troops to Afghanistan, has suggested that this could be one justification for the United States to stay engaged in the country.

Minerals in Afghanistan worth $1 trillion, U.S. says - CNN.com
 
02:16
(CNN) -- U.S. military officials and geologists have determined that the mineral deposits in Afghanistan are worth nearly $1 trillion, the Pentagon said Monday. Vast supplies of minerals such as iron, copper and gold, all with worldwide technological applications, are scattered over the country, according to the Defense Department. But officials caution that they won't be easy to extricate and that it will take years to turn this newfound mineral wealth into actual revenue. "It's not a quick win," the U.S. Geological Survey's Jack Medlin said at a Pentagon briefing Monday. Pentagon and State Department officials acknowledged that extraction efforts are challenged by remote locations, a weak infrastructure, a dearth of heavy vehicles and equipment, and a strong insurgent presence. "Turning the potential of Afghanistan's mineral wealth into actual revenue will take years," State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said Monday. "Mineral extraction, you know, faces numerous but not insurmountable challenges." Geologists from the Geological Survey started studying the potential of Afghan mineral resources in 2004, after being presented with maps generated by the Soviet Union in the 1980s and earlier data that showed hundreds of mineral sites, according to Medlin. Crowley downplayed questions about the potential for other countries to try to exploit Afghanistan's possible wealth and acknowledged that internal corruption could pose a problem. "We're very mindful of the fact that around the world, you have a number of countries that are blessed with natural resources that may become a source of conflict and corruption," Crowley said. "We want to be sure that we have helped Afghanistan develop effective institutions of government so that it's able to develop its mining sector, that it's generating revenue that can be turned into greater prosperity and shared opportunity for the Afghan people," he said. The financial implications of this announcement are enormous, according to economic experts. Once the minerals are mined and processed, Afghanistan could well be on its way to economic prosperity, becoming a modern economy rather than one that is narcotics-based. It would then be better capable of paying for its own defense, among other things. "It could very well be that this country is not going to be dependent on the United States and the United States aid or foreign aid forever," said Mohsin Khan, senior fellow with the Peterson Institute for International Economics. "It's got resources, and eventually, when it starts to exploit them, it will do fine," Khan said. On Monday, the New York Times quoted an internal Pentagon memo that said Afghanistan has become the "Saudi Arabia of lithium," used in batteries for laptop computers. The exact amount of lithium in Afghan soil is still being determined. Medlin said the U.S. is making every effort to quickly help the Afghans with the necessary tools they need to facilitate commercial development of the mines. "This wealth has the potential to enable them to have a future they were not aware of," Medlin said.

Congo, My Precious. The Curse of the coltan mines in Congo
 
52:01
Watch more https://rtd.rt.com/tags/illegal-mining/ The Democratic Republic of Congo in Africa is one of the world’s most resource-rich countries. A wide range of rare minerals can be found here in abundance, all commanding high prices in world commodity markets. Diamonds for jewellery, tantalum, tungsten and gold for electronics; uranium used in power generation and weaponry and many others. Congo has copious deposits of raw materials that are in high demand internationally but remains one of the poorest countries in the world. From colonisation, with the horrors of slavery and other atrocities, to a turbulent and equally brutal present in which militant groups control the mines, Congo’s richness in natural resources has brought nothing but misery. Referred to as “conflict minerals”, these riches leave only a trail of death, destruction and poverty. Under Belgian rule, Congolese labourers were often required to meet quotas when mining different minerals. Failure could mean punishment by having a hand cut off with a machete. The country gained independence in 1960, but that didn’t put a stop to slave and child labour or to crimes being committed to extract and exploit the minerals. Warring militant fractions from inside the country and beyond seized control of mines for their own benefit while terrorising local populations. For our translator, Bernard Kalume Buleri, his country’s history of turmoil is very personal; like most Congolese people, he and his family fell victim to the unending mineral based power struggle. Born in the year of his country’s independence, he has lived through war and seen his homeland torn apart by violent looting and greed. His story is a damning testament, illustrating how nature’s bounty, instead of being a blessing, becomes a deadly curse.

Security of Supply of Mineral Resources Programme
 
12:47
Security of Supply of Mineral Resources (SoS MinErals) is a multi-million pound research programme, backed by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council, in partnership with industry and academia, and our global partner FAPESP. Global action to protect the environment and to mitigate and adapt to increased atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) is demanding significant changes in the way we generate and use energy. This initiative focuses on the science needed to sustain the security of supply of the strategic elements that underpin current and future green energy technologies — the so-called 'e-tech elements': cobalt (Co), tellurium (Te), slenium (Se), neodymium (Nd), indium (In), gallium (Ga) and heavy rare earth elements (HREE). The programme aims to enhance global security of supply of these e-tech elements in two ways; firstly through improved understanding of e-tech element cycling and concentration in natural systems, and secondly by using this information to develop improved recovery processes from primary sources in order to mitigate the environmental effects of extraction and recovery of e-tech elements.

Alba Mineral Resources boss says mining and oil projects are all on track
 
09:10
Alba Mineral Resources PLC (LON:ALBA) updates investors on progress on its portfolio of mining and oil projects. Alba Executive Chairman George Frangeskides gives Proactive London a comprehensive run down on progress at Horse Hill, Clogau, Limmerick and Greenland projects. Among highlights are ongoing activities towards the re-opening of the Clogau-St Davids gold mine, the UK's largest historical gold producer, as well as an extensive regional exploration programme which will shortly be commencing across the Dolgellau gold belt. This work will involve the collection of up to 3,000 samples covering about 50 per cent of the total extent of the gold belt. “By the use of systematic, modern exploration techniques, our objective is to unearth one or more gold deposits to rival the Clogau-St Davids mine,” said Frangeskides. Meanwhile, in Ireland, one or more zinc targets will be drilled later in the spring. And in Greenland, Alba has completed an important technical study in relation to the Inglefield polymetallic project. “We remain very positive about all of our Greenland projects, and intend to continue to be one of the prime movers and explorers in that vast, mineral-rich country,” said Frangeskides.

The new scramble for Africa’s resources – looting or development?
 
01:01:43
The outside world has its eye increasingly set on Africa. Farming lands and new discoveries of oil, gas and minerals have made the continent interesting again – not only for former colonial powers and the United States but also China and India. Under the motto “trade no aid”, Africa’s poor are to be lifted by trade rather than aid. Meanwhile, history shows that rich natural resources easily become a curse. Instead of creating jobs, better education and healthcare, large export revenues often lead to corruption, conflict and to countries becoming dependent on raw materials. Who are the winners and who are the losers in the new scramble for Africa’s resources? Who ensures that the fortunes will benefit the citizens themselves, and what is required for a broad community development? These issues were discussed at a live-streamed panel debate in Lund on 10 November. Panellists included: Margaret C Lee, leading Africa researcher and author of “The 21st Century Scramble for Africa” Nnimmo Bassey, was awarded the Right Livelihood Award in 2010 for discoveries about the humanitarian and ecological disaster as a result of the Nigerian oil industry.

U.S. geologists have discovered vast mineral wealth in Afghanistan, possibly amounting to $1 trillio
 
01:26
HEADLINE: Afghan mineral find may be worth $1 trillion CAPTION: U.S. geologists have discovered vast mineral wealth in Afghanistan, possibly amounting to $1 trillion, President Hamid Karzai's spokesman said Monday. (June 14) MORE THAN EIGHT YEARS OF WAR IN AFGHANISTAN HAVE LEFT MUCH OF THE COUNTRY'S INFRASTRUCTURE IN TATTERS. THE UNITED NATIONS RANKS THE COUNTRY AS THE LEAST DEVELOPED IN ASIA. BUT AMERICAN SCIENTISTS SAY AFGHANISTAN HAS NATURAL RESOURCES THAT COULD TRANSFORM THE NATION. A PRESIDENTIAL SPOKESMAN SAYS A NEW REVIEW HAS IDENTIFIED AS MUCH AS A TRILLION DOLLARS WORTH OF RESOURCES INCLUDING, IRON, COPPER, COBALT, GOLD AND LITHIUM. IN A VISIT TO WASHINGTON LAST MONTH, AFGAN PRESIDENT HAMID KARZAI SAID THE VALUE COULD BE UP TO THREE-TRILLION DOLLARS. (SOT: Waheed Omar, Afghan President Spokesman) "It's very heartening that Afghanistan has a very bright future if the Afghan mineral resources are properly extracted. We hope that this will be a resource for Afghanistan which will make Afghanistan self sufficient in the forthcoming future." GEOLOGISTS HAVE KNOWN FOR DECADES THAT AFGHANISTAN CONTAINED SUBSTANTIAL MINERAL RESOURCES. BUT THE RESOURCES HAVE NEVER BEEN FULLY EXPLOITED BECAUSE OF DECADES OF ARMED CONFLICT AND LACK OF TRANSPORTATION, POWER AND OTHER INFRASTRUCTURE NEEDS. APTN STORY NUMBER: 648398 SHOTLIST 1.

State Dept, analyst on discovery of minerals in Afghanistan
 
02:18
(14 Jun 2010) SHOTLIST DEPARTMENT OF STATE TELEVISION 1. US State Department Spokesman P.J. Crowley walks to podium 2. SOUNDBITE (English) P.J. Crowley, US State Department Spokesman: "It is a potentially important development. We're not underestimating the challenges involved here, you know, but, obviously, if these things can be developed over time, that offers the ability for Afghanistan to have the resources necessary to develop a modern economy, a legal economy, as opposed to the economy they currently have now, which is heavily dependent on narcotics." AP TELEVISION 3. Wide of Stephanie Sanok, international security expert at Center for Strategic and International Studies, during interview 4. SOUNDBITE (English) Stephanie Sanok, International Security Expert, Center for Strategic and International Studies: "What amazes me most about this story is that its been 25 years in the making. In the mid 80s, the Soviets knew that there were vast mineral resources in Afghanistan but they didn't do anything about it. And in the Taliban rule, nothing could be done about it. The U.S. Geological Survey has come across and said there are perhaps up to one (t) trillion dollars worth of mineral resources: copper, iron, rare earth elements like lithium. What it means in terms of U.S. policy is that I believe the Obama administration will now target more resources at developing the infrastructure necessary to extract those minerals." 5. Wide of Sanok 6. SOUNDBITE (English) Stephanie Sanok, International Security Expert, Center for Strategic and International Studies: "There is a real danger in discovering minerals in countries like Afghanistan. It's a double-edged sword. The positive side is obviously employment, economic opportunity for the Afghans, themselves, if they have the regulations and laws in place so that Afghanistan can benefit. The other side, though, is that it will make the Taliban cling more tightly to the areas that they do control. If they can't access these minerals, that's fine. They also don't want anyone else to benefit from gaining access to these minerals." 7. Wide of Sanok 8. SOUNDBITE (English) Stephanie Sanok, International Security Expert, Center for Strategic and International Studies: "If the Afghans can access these resources it could very well be a game changer for them. You're looking a country with a 12 (b) billion dollar gross domestic product. It's not a rich country, it is war torn. There are basic security concerns and essential services that the Afghan people aren't getting. So in terms of giving more wealth to this impoverished nation it's a great opportunity." 9. Wide of Sanok STORYLINE It could take years and possibly even a peace settlement for Afghanistan to reap profits from nearly one (t) trillion US dollars in mineral resources that US geologists say lie beneath its rugged terrain - some in areas currently controlled by Taliban insurgents or warlords. Geologists have known for decades that Afghanistan has vast mineral wealth, but a US Department of Defence briefing this week put a startling price tag on the country's reserves of iron, copper, cobalt, gold and other prized minerals: at least 908 (b) billion US dollars. If impoverished Afghanistan is seen as having a bright economic future, that could help foreign governments persuade their war-fatigued publics that securing the country is worth the fight and loss of troops. It also could give Afghans hope, US officials say. Still, without increased security and massive investment to mine and transport the minerals, it could take years for Afghanistan to bank the rewards. And there's always the potential that such a discovery could bring unintended consequences, including corruption and civil war. Afghanistan.

The deep ocean is the final frontier on planet Earth
 
14:49
Watch the latest in the Ocean series - What sharks reveal about the state of the Ocean: https://youtu.be/6xz1mxppMhY The ocean covers 70% of our planet. The deep-sea floor is a realm that is largely unexplored, but cutting-edge technology is enabling a new generation of aquanauts to go deeper than ever before. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.trib.al/rWl91R7 Beneath the waves is a mysterious world that takes up to 95% of Earth's living space. Only three people have ever reached the bottom of the deepest part of the ocean. The deep is a world without sunlight, of freezing temperatures, and immense pressure. It's remained largely unexplored until now. Cutting-edge technology is enabling a new generation of aquanauts to explore deeper than ever before. They are opening up a whole new world of potential benefits to humanity. The risks are great, but the rewards could be greater. From a vast wealth of resources to clues about the origins of life, the race is on to the final frontier The Okeanos Explorer, the American government state-of-the-art vessel, designed for every type of deep ocean exploration from discovering new species to investigating shipwrecks. On board, engineers and scientists come together to answer questions about the origins of life and human history. Today the Okeanos is on a mission to investigate the wreck of a World War one submarine. Engineer Bobby Moore is part of a team who has developed the technology for this type of mission. The “deep discover”, a remote operating vehicle is equipped with 20 powerful LED lights and designed to withstand the huge pressure four miles down. Equivalent to 50 jumbo jets stacked on top of a person While the crew of the Okeanos send robots to investigate the deep, some of their fellow scientists prefer a more hands-on approach. Doctor Greg stone is a world leading marine biologist with over 8,000 hours under the sea. He has been exploring the abyss in person for 30 years. The technology opening up the deep is also opening up opportunity. Not just to witness the diversity of life but to glimpse vast amounts of rare mineral resources. Some of the world's most valuable metals can be found deep under the waves. A discovery that has begun to pique the interest of the global mining industry. The boldest of mining companies are heading to the deep drawn by the allure of a new Gold Rush. But to exploit it they're also beating a path to another strange new world. In an industrial estate in the north of England, SMD is one of the world's leading manufacturers of remote underwater equipment. The industrial technology the company has developed has made mining possible several kilometers beneath the ocean surface. With an estimated 150 trillion dollars’ worth of gold alone, deep-sea mining has the potential to transform the global economy. With so much still to discover, mining in the deep ocean could have unknowable impact. It's not just life today that may need protecting; reaching the deep ocean might just allow researchers to answer some truly fundamental questions. Hydrothermal vents, hot springs on the ocean floor, are cracks in the Earth's crust. Some claim they could help scientists glimpse the origins of life itself. We might still be years away from unlocking the mysteries of the deep. Even with the latest technology, this kind of exploration is always challenging. As the crew of the Okeanos comes to terms with a scale of the challenge and the opportunity that lies beneath, what they and others discover could transform humanity's understanding of how to protect the ocean. It's the most hostile environment on earth, but the keys to our future may lie in the deep.

After Freeport McMoran sent Geologist Forbes Wilson in 1959 to signed Agreement for Exploration with Dutch Borneo Company, the him went to explored in 1960 and the lost of Michael Rockefeller in West Papua so US Ambassador to Indonesia Mr. Jones waited John. F. Kennedy inauguration in 21 January 1961 then sent him telegram 26 January 1961 to push US President John. F. Kennedy asked Dutch to transferred the Administration of West Papua to Indonesia, although West Papua has been setup as Non Self Governing Territory through UNGA Resolution A/RES/448 (V) to granted Independent according to UN Charter Article 73 and UNGA Resolution A/RES/1514 (XV). U.S. Ambassador to Indonesia, Howard P. Jones, waited only days after the inauguration of President Kennedy to submit a broad seven-point plan to prevent Indonesia from falling under Communist control and to win it over to the west. Key points in his plan were the resolution of the West New Guinea (WNG) question whereby Indonesia received a promise that the territory would be reunited with Indonesia. Equally important was the creation of a personal relationship between Presidents Kennedy and Sukarno. (White House Doc. List. No: 143)

CBSE Class 10 | Geography | Non Metallic Minerals |
 
03:02
In this module, you will learn about Non Metallic Minerals, Mica is a non-metallic mineral composed of thin leaves or sheets joined together. Mica is found in many colours, from transparent to black, green, tallow, brown and red. Mica provides excellent electrical insulation with low power loss even at very high voltages. Mica is used extensively in the electrical and electronics industries. The main mica producing regions in India are the northern Chhota Nagpur Plateau in Jharkhand, Ajmer in Rajasthan and Nellore in Andhra Pradesh. The Koderma, Gaya and Hazaribagh belt in Jharkhand is the largest producer of mica in India. Limestone is a form of sedimentary rock composed almost entirely of calcium carbonate. Limestone is mainly used in smelting iron ore and manufacturing of cement. Andhra Pradesh is the main limestone-producing state in India, followed by Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and others. Workers engaged in mining face serious risks to their health and life. Indiscriminate mining leads to extensive deforestation. Dumping of mining waste results in soil and land degradation, and the pollution of air and fresh water bodies. We need stricter laws and the implementation of personal and environmental safety regulations to keep mining a safe activity. Usable minerals are only about 1 percent of the earth’s crust. Minerals are limited and non-renewable resources. Continuous mining starts yielding poor quality ores at much higher cost. We need to conserve our mineral resources. Recycling and reusing material and finding suitable substitutes of minerals can help us conserve our mineral resources.

Mineral Rape in the DRC

Grand Theft Congo (2005): The major problem facing Africa is corruption and control of resources. In the DRC, the military is stealing minerals to sell to Western companies. For downloads and more information visit http://www.journeyman.tv/18683/short-films/grand-theft-congo.html At a remote mine in central DRC, workers with torches and pick axes hack at the ruddy earth. They are mining cassiterite, a mineral vital in the production of laptops and mobile phones. But dispersed among the miners are Congolese Government troops -- in plain clothes for the camera -- literally forcing most workers to work at gunpoint. 'The soldiers always steal everything. They even come to shoot people down the mineshafts,' complains Regina Maponda. Western greed for cassiterite is fuelling the boom -- at an airfield near the mine, soldiers jealously guard their loot as it makes it way to Japan and the West.
