Geology & Earth Sciences playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL33B1A9216BB65F7A more at http://scitech.quickfound.net Good overview of mining and mineral resources in the US as of 1922, with many nice film clips and lots of statistics. Reupload of a previously uploaded film with improved video & sound. 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
 
09:18
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

Afghan minerals: Uncovered conspiracy
 
06:14
The United States has discovered nearly $1 trillion in untapped mineral deposits in Afghanistan, far beyond any previously known reserves and enough to fundamentally alter the Afghan economy and perhaps the Afghan war itself, according to senior American government officials. Webster Tarpley says that this is a planted story in The New York Times by the government to keep the war going.

Afghanistan Mineral Resources - Part I
 
03:11
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. The resulting analysis demonstrates the power of being able to combine disparate types of data--here, mineral data and attack data--by means of Palantir's Dynamic Ontology.

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.
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.

Trump Finds Reason for the US  to Remain in Afghanistan Minerals
 
09:23
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.

National Security, Rare Earth Elements & The Thorium Problem
 
23:00
"The only operating rare earth mine in the United States sends all of their valuable resources to China for processing. Congress does not know this. They think this [mining] company is supplying the U.S. value chain, [and] is supplying the military. It is in-fact, the opposite. They are part of the Chinese monopoly. They're taking powder and shipping it to China, and it comes back as a magnet, or an alloy, or a bolt-on component." - Jim Kennedy To address this issue, contact your legislators to support H.R.4883 https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/113/hr4883 Why can't Molycorp, Lynas or any other 'western' rare earth company succeed? China's production and market advantage in Rare Earth Elements (REE) is largely the result of NRC and IAEA "Source Material" regulations with unintended consequences. Source Material: Materials containing any ratio or combination of Thorium and Uranium above .05%. Producing or holding these materials within the regulatory threshold (.05%) requires extensive and wide-ranging licensing, storage, transportation, remediation disposal and compliance costs, including prohibitive liability and bonding issues. Consequently any potential supplier of byproduct / co-product rare earth resources that would be designated as "source material' disposes of these valuable resources to avoid liability and compliance issues. NRC / IAEA regulations regarding "Source Material" played a key roll in undermining the economic viability of all 'western' rare earth producers and are a critical factor in China's current 'market advantage'. Producers like Molycorp and Lynas, with low Thorium deposits, can never compete with China. Resources are abundant and available: U.S mining companies currently mine as much as 50% of global Rare Earth Elements demand every year. But these resources are diverted in tailings lakes or are redistributed back into the host ore body, due to NRC and IAEA regulations defining Monazite and other Thorium bearing rare earth resources as "Source Material". H.R. 4883 would solve the "Thorium Problem" by creating a federally chartered multinational Thorium Energy and Industrial Products Corporation ("Thorium Bank"). Privately funded and operated, this would decouple thorium from rare earth production. The Thorium Corporation would also have Congressional Authority to develop Thorium energy systems and industrial products. Environmental regulations are not scaled back... rather this enables thorium to be stored safely & securely, rather then being treated as "waste". https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/113/hr4883 H.R. 4883 thus also addresses the U.S. Weapons Systems current 100% Dependency on China for Rare Earths. http://thoriumenergyalliance.com/downloads/TEAC6/USWeaponsChinese.pdf Federal Legislation governing Strategic Materials, 10 USC 2533b, does not specify rare earths, but includes metal alloys containing limited amounts of manganese, silicon, copper, or aluminum, chromium, cobalt, columbium, molybdenum, nickel, titanium, tungsten, vanadium, nickel and iron-nickel, cobalt, Titanium and Zirconium alloys. Federal Regulations require that these materials be melted in the U.S. Most of these materials are utilized in rare earth alloys, magnets and components in the defense industry. The bill does NOT reclassify thorium. It does NOT alter current environmental protection. It simply resolves "The Thorium Problem" which cripples United States domestic rare earth mining, processing and value-adding processes.

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.

Afghan gold mine
 
05:15
The United States has discovered nearly $1 trillion in untapped mineral deposits in Afghanistan, far beyond any previously known reserves and enough to fundamentally alter the Afghan economy and perhaps the Afghan war itself, according to senior American government officials. Ann Marlowe says that despite the finding of minerals, it would take 15-20 years under the best circumstances to actually extract the natural resources.

The Global Supply of Critical Materials:  Assessing and Tracking Critical Mineral Commodities
 
17:38
No country in the world produces all of the mineral resources necessary for modern society. International trade plays a critical role in providing these raw materials, forming a global network of production, export, import, and use. This network must continuously adapt to national and international developments in science, technology, politics, and economics. As a result, information on the global flow of raw materials plays a fundamental role in improving national and international resilience to potential supply disruptions and market changes. This is the first presentation from the AGI Critical Issues webinar, "Tracking the Global Supply of Critical Materials". This webinar focuses on U.S. and European Union (EU) efforts to gather information and develop tools that can be used to ensure a secure national and global supply of mineral resources; identify and quantify vulnerabilities in this supply; and stimulate national and international co-operation, education and outreach, and innovation in the development, recycling, and substitution of key mineral resources. Our speakers include: Nedal Nassar, Chief, Materials Flow Analysis Section, National Minerals Information Center, U.S. Geological Survey Vitor Correia, President, European Federation of Geologists, and co-ordinator of the EU’s INTRAW project This webinar is co-sponsored by the American Geophysical Union, American Institute of Professional Geologists, Australian Institute of Geoscientists, European Federation of Geologists, Geological Society of Africa, Geological Society of London, Geoscience Information Society, Mineralogical Society of America, and Society of Economic Geologists, with media partnership from the U.S. Geological Survey.

Mining Bonanza: US will never leave $1-trillion mineral rich Afghan land?
 
01:35
Afghanistan could become one of the most important mining centers in the world, according to an American report. It suggests the war-torn country has at least one trillion dollars in mineral wealth. President Hamid Karzai has described it as the best news Afghanistan has had for many years. But investigative journalist Webster Tarpley believes the story is nothing new and the report is politically motivated.

Mining for minerals in 🇦🇫Afghanistan
 
03:02
Afghanistan is estimated to have $3 trillion worth of mineral deposits, which through years of insecurity have remained unexploited. Gold, iron ore, copper ore, emeralds, lapis, rubies as well as natural gas are all found in the north of the country. Now with help from advisors from the US Task Force for Business and Stability Operations (TFBSO), the Afghanistan Geological Survey is gaining the skills it needs to explore and exploit the country's resources. Geologists and drillers are being trained to investigate sites to test for the presence of resources. ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ SUBSCRIBE to this channel http://bit.ly/NATOsubscribe SUBSCRIBE to NATO News http://bit.ly/NATONewsSubscribe SUBSCRIBE to NATO History http://bit.ly/NATOHistorySubscribe Connect with NATO online: Visit the Official NATO Homepage: http://bit.ly/NATOhomepage Find NATO on FACEBOOK: http://bit.ly/NATOfacebook Follow @NATO on TWITTER: http://bit.ly/NATOtwitter Follow NATO on Instagram: http://bit.ly/NATOinstagram Find NATO on Google+: http://bit.ly/NATOgoogleplus Find NATO on LinkedIn: http://bit.ly/NATOlinkedin Find NATO on Flickr: http://bit.ly/NATOflickr #NATO #Afghanistan #minerals

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.

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.

Marchese of Texas Mineral Resources on ‘extremely lucrative returns’ to extract scandium from coal
 
07:11
August 11, 2016 -- Texas Mineral Resources Corp. (OTCQX: TMRC) is an exploration-stage mining company with its flagship property, Round Top Mountain, near Sierra Blanca in Hudspeth County, Texas. The Texas Bureau of Economic Geology first recognized the unique geology of Round Top Mountain some 25 years ago. But few uses existed then for the rare earth elements found in the mountain. Now times have changed and one example of the grave security importance of rare earth elements is the 920lbs of rare earths used in each F-35 Joint Strike Fighter jet. In recent developments, Texas Mineral Resources Corp. has announced - That it has successfully completed a demonstration-of-concept project to separate and refine specific high-purity rare earth elements for the United States Defense Logistics Agency's Strategic Materials Division in conjunction with its joint venture partner K-Technologies, Inc. - That it had signed a memorandum of understanding with a well-established privately-held Pennsylvania coal company. The MOU gives TMRC a six-month period of time to further evaluate the potential to finance, recover and produce scandium and other rare earth byproducts from their properties. In this interview with InvestorIntel reporter Fred Cowans, Texas Mineral Resources Chairman Anthony Marchese discusses: - His company's new strategies. - How the plan to extract scandium from the overburden of a coal project, as well as the fly ash after the coal is burned, could provide extremely lucrative returns. - How Round Top Mountain offers the lowest capex rare earths project in the world. - Why a big mistake is being made by the U.S. in not developing own rare earth supply. (He believes such development is only a question of time.) Disclaimer: Texas Minerals Resources Corp. is an advertorial member of InvestorIntel.

AMERICAN NIKKI HALEY CREATED A NEW GENOCIDE PANEL TO PROSECUTE BIYA FOR WAR CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY
 
06:55
BREAKING NEWS FROM The American envoy to the United Nations, Nikki R. Haley, and United States Vice president Mike Pence describing the United States as the “moral conscience” of the world that must fight to protect human rights and prevent genocide from some of the world's dangerous and evil dictators like Paul Biya who is fully sponsored and supported by France to kill his own people in the name of mineral resources. These honorable Americans dismissed the United Nations Human Rights Council as “so corrupt” by offering evidence like the case of France who is a united Nations security council permanent members fully supporting and empowering Paul Biya who has violated all the human rights laws in the books but still be supported by France to kill his own people in a proxy war sponsored by France because of mineral resources.Both Nikki R. Haley and Vice president Mike Pence delivered pointed attacks on the United Nations Human Rights Council, the main international body meant to promote and defend human rights but are instead sponsoring and promoting worst human rights violations in the world. “I mean, the Human Rights Council is so corrupt,” she said, adding that it includes “bad actors” who use it to protect themselves and the governments that they support like Mr. Khassim Diagne a former UNHCR boss in Cameroon, Nadine Njoya and Mathew Willis now working at the United Nations secretary general office as direct advisers to Antonio Guterres. These individuals knowingly destroyed videos evidence, falsifies Ambazonian most sensitive documents in a calculated attempt to conceal and cover up for President Paul Biya. It is also alleged that Mr. Khassim Diagne is a double agent of President Paul Biya regime who is blocking any shred of video evidence or documents that are incriminating to Paul Biya from reaching Antonio Guterres in order to make proper decisions or public statements on the Anglophone crisis in Cameroon. It is also alleged that Khassim Diagne is a double agent for Paul Biya and was paid $10,000,000.00 by the Paul Biya Regime and France with the full intent to impede and obstruct any UN investigation agency from coming to Cameroon to conduct a thorough investigation about the genocide or massacre that killed thousands of people, with thousands more severely wounded and displaced, both externally and internally displaced, and missing. Unfortunately Mr. Khassim Diagne recommended to the secretary general that President Paul Biya regime should conduct his own investigation in the killings and burning of villages and communities by the Cameroon army. Why would United Nations be asking the same criminal Paul Biya to investigate his own self if this is not witchcraft? One of the criteria for the United Nations Security Council to act is when there are gross violations of international humanitarian law like the case of tyrants like Paul Biya who has commanded his army to shoot and kill civilians including women and children cannot be brought to justice then what kind of organization is the United Nations security council all about?. If the big powers like France, Russia, China and Great Britain lack the will or vision to prosecute Paul Biya for war crimes against humanity, then throw it at the United Nations at least to camouflage responsibility. Again, Mr. Khassim Diagne, Ms Njoya Nadine, Mathew Willis and the UN carried the brunt of the blame, but what about the major powers? When United nations permanent members like China, Russia, and France are openly supporting and financing Paul Biya's army to kill more Anglophones just because they are deeply involved in investment interests in Ambazonia mineral resources by all cost. Why would these united nations security council members instead sign oil and gas contracts with Ambazonia interim government instead Paul Biya they are using to sponsor proxy wars against Ambazonians. Come rain or come sun, Ambazonia will be free in Jesus mighty name Amen.

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.

Mining for Gold in Haiti: Haiti Helped or Exploited by U.S., Canadian Mining Companies?

Learn more: http://pulitzercenter.org/projects/haiti-gold-mines-foreign-companies-investment-government-distribution-wealth-poverty After years of rumors that gold mining companies were exploring in Haiti, Canadian and U.S. gold mining corporations now confirm they have permits to mine gold in more than 1,000 square miles in northern Haiti. Haiti's new prime minister says the estimated $20 billion worth of minerals in Haiti's hills could help liberate it from dependency on foreign aid and rebuild from the devastating 2010 earthquake. But many worry the gold mines will be a boom for foreign investors and a bust for local Haitian communities. Democracy Now! speak to Jane Regan, lead author of "Gold Rush in Haiti: Who Will Get Rich?" The report by Haiti Grassroots Watch was published Wednesday in The Guardian and Haïti Liberté. "You've got a perfect storm brewing whereby you're looking at giant pit mines in the north, in a country that's already environmentally devastated, and giant pit mines being run by Canadian and American companies," Regan says. "Most of the money that's made and most of the gold that's dug up will go straight north." (Modified from the original excerpt provided by Democracy Now!) This report is part of Pulitzer Center-sponsored project "Haiti: Sitting on a Gold Mine" (http://bit.ly/LSCNtf).
