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

Why Isn't Congo as Rich as Saudi Arabia? Massive Tax Evasion
 
04:38
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 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.

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

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.

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.

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 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.

Afghan mineral deposits to support economy

Could natural resources offer Afghanistan the chance of better future? The country has vast reserves of lucrative of metal and mineral reserves not to mention oil and gas deposits. The government hopes this will help reduce its dependency on foreign aid as international troops pull out in 2014. But although a string of deals have been signed with international companies in recent years to exploit this new source of wealth, progress has so far been slow.

Mineral Rape in the DRC
 
15:56
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. Conflict mining is a curse, and it is difficult to see what the G8 leaders can do.

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.

Nationalisation Debate: South Africa's Mineral Resources Equivalent to One Million Rand per Citizen
 
19:36
Talking about the nationalisation debate in South Africa in relation to the mining sector, black economic empowerment (BEE) expert Duma Gqubule explains that the value of untapped mineral resources in South Africa's is US$4.7 trillion. Put differently, the value of these mineral resources is worth one million Rand per South African citizen. Gqubule argues that the mistake our country made in relation to BEE was to set a target of 25% for black people. By definition, a black empowerment transaction will only benefit a few black people. There has to be more that you take from this industry for the country as a whole, he contends. Gqubule is interviewed by Fazila Farouk of the South African Civil Society Information Service.

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)

(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.

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.

Lowenthal Opening Statement

Afghanistan minerals, China to USA & NATO: Thank you.

Recently is has been announced Afghanistan could be the Saudi Arabia of minerals. It is estimated Afghanistan to have approximately $1 trillion in minerals. Such as copper, iron, cobalt, gold, and lithium. Lithium used to produce batteries for cell phones, computers, and laptops. President Obama increased NATO and USA military activity in Afghanistan. Where are the Democrats, the liberals and news media accusing the President of doing so just to extract the minerals our of Afghanistan? Remember these same dopes accused President Bush of going into Iraq just for the oil. Really? Iraq awarded five foreign contracts to extract the oil. None went to the USA, while one was awarded to China. China to the USA & NATO: thank you for the oil. Afghanistan awarded a copper mining contract to China. Once again China to USA & NATO: thank you for the cooper. The USA & NATO shedding blood for the mineral enrichment of China. Remember China borders Afghanistan making it easy to transport equipment and people. Just ask Vietnam about their bauxite (aluminum) mines. The bauxite mines in Vietnam operated by China, it is reported Chinese works are some locations are armed. Giving rise to the Vietnamese suspicion these workers are in actuality part of the Chinese military. Subterfuge anyone? Please understand there is not attempt to claim President Obama increased military action in Afghanistan for their minerals. Just mentioned it to ask for consistency from the news media, Democrats and liberals.

Mining for Gold in Haiti: Haiti Helped or Exploited by U.S., Canadian Mining Companies?
 
06:19
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).

Mining in the USA:" United States: A Ten Talent Nation" (1922) American Motion Picture Corp.
 
13:23
Good overview of mining and mineral resources in the US as of 1922, with many nice film clips and lots of statistics. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mining 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...
