Harsher laws sought against illegal sand mining in Namibia
Harsher laws sought against illegal sand mining in Namibia Illegal sand mining is threatening the environment and communities in Namibia. Residents say regulations against the practice are being ignored and are calling on the government to impose harsher laws. The government says it has shut down some illegal miners, but it does not have enough resources to monitor the entire country.

Legal Pathways for Addressing Environmental Harm in Deep Seabed Mining Activities
Everyone is aware of off-shore oil rigs; these platforms drill down underwater for valuable resources just off the coast of many nations. But, deep in the ocean beyond national aquatic boundaries lies an abundance of natural resources such as gold, copper, manganese and zinc. State-sponsored companies are surveying and staking claim to these resources, but so far, no one has been granted approval to begin extracting them. The International Seabed Authority (ISA) — the governing body that oversees all activities in international waters (known as the Area) — is currently developing regulations for the extraction of marine minerals. Rules and procedures that govern liability for damage arising from mining activities will be crucial aspect of this regulatory framework. Who is responsible when an environmental disaster occurs as a result of mining activities? To assist in clarifying these legal issues of responsibility and liability, the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI), the Commonwealth Secretariat and the Secretariat of the International Seabed Authority established the Liability Issues for Deep Seabed Mining project. Under the direction of Neil Craik (CIGI), Hannah Lily (Commonwealth Secretariat) and Alfonso Ascencio-Herrera (ISA Secretariat), this project seeks to provide a foundational understanding of key questions surrounding the further development of liability rules.
Profits Over People: Mining Ruins Lives in Malawi - SHORT
Malawi’s government has failed to protect the rights and livelihoods of people living in nascent mining communities, Human Rights Watch said today in a report released on eve of the International Right to Know Day. Families living near coal and uranium mining operations face serious problems with water, food, and housing, and are left in the dark about health and other risks from mining. The 96-page report, “‘They Destroyed Everything’: Mining and Human Rights in Malawi,” examines the impact of extractive industries on communities in some of Malawi’s first mining areas, in Karonga district located on the northwestern shores of Lake Malawi. Malawi’s government has promoted private investment in mining and resource extraction to diversify its economy. But environmental risks are common in resource extraction and mining significantly contributes to climate change, which in turn affects governments’ ability to realize the rights to health, water, and food.

Pohamba: Namibia at the crossroads | Talk to Al Jazeera
Namibia is a country that rarely makes the international headlines. It is also one of the most sparsely-populated places on earth. Named after the vast Namib desert the country is a place that has been controlled by two different foreign powers in the last century. Until World War I it was a German colony, a period marked by repression and the genocide of thousands of tribesmen who were driven into the desert where they starved. Then neighbouring South Africa took control and imposed its apartheid system. Namibia is now a post-colonial, post-conflict nation facing many of the same problems as its neighbours. So far it has maintained the domestic peace and many things are going well. On the global corruption index, Namibia ranks lower than many other countries in Africa. Tourism is growing, but balancing the environmental impact is a challenge. But in a country that is extremely rich in mineral resources there is great inequality. Many of the big landowners are white, and the black population is increasingly angry about this situation. So the president says the white population must give up land or possibly face a revolution. In the 22 years since independence Namibia has been run by just one party, SWAPO, the same organisation that led the guerrilla war for independence. Its leader, Hifikepunye Lucas Pohamba, who is also the Namibian president, discussed with Talk to Al Jazeera how the country has managed to remain so peaceful, and how he intends to deal with the underlying anger and growing discontent in his country.

However, it can also contain magnesium carbonate, clay, iron carbonate, feldspar,... In the manufacture of high-class, colourless glass, feldspar should have a maximum of 0.1% Fe2O3 though upto 0.3% is permissible. The presence of iron in the batchposition for glass is not liked because its presence, even in very small quantity, tends to colour the glass. The mesh size required is 40-80 BSS in the glass industry. A still finer mesh can be utilized in the ceramic industry. In this industry, a little higher percentage of iron content in feldspar is not objected to. However, in the preparation of white wares feldspar containing below 0.4% Fe2O3 is preferred. Monchique residents had already started to fight against the plans and an online petition has reached more than 1,500 signatures already.

Bertchen Kohrs The Dirt behind Uranium in Namibia Presentation in New Bulgarian University
The market for uranium changed in a dramatic way. Uranium has become one of the most sought after resources in the world: during five years the price of uranium increased twenty-fold. Uranium mining, the first chain link of the nuclear energy production has always been out of the public eye. A web of propaganda, disinformation and outright lies covers its 65-year history. The 2015 October event of Place for Future Transdisciplinary Education Network was focused on this problems. Together with Environmental Association „Za Zemyata / За Земята“ (For the Earth) – Bulgaria, ECO PRO Club from New Bulgarian University, Shtastlivetsa / Щастливеца Civic Association and Earthlife Namibia we manage to show in public the documentary “YELLOW CAKE The Dirt Behind Uranium”. This film takes the viewers to the biggest active mines in Namibia, Australia and Canada while at the same time in Germany the film accompanies the most gigantic clean-up operation in the history of uranium mining. The event continued with presentation of Bertchen Kohrs from Earthlife Namibia and with discussion with students and with the organizers. 26 October 2015 in New Bulgarian University * Organisation Team: Earthlife Namibia (Bertchen Kohrs) ECO PRO Club – New Bulgarian University (Silvia Savova) Environmental Association „Za Zemyata / За Земята“ (For the Earth) – Bulgaria (Genady Kondarev and Daniel Popov) Shtastlivetsa Civic Association (Radosveta Krastanova and Petar Kanev) PLACE FOR FUTURE Transdisciplinary Education Network Bertchen Kohrs grew up in Northern Germany; she studied chemistry in Braunschweig, Germany. She immigrated to Namibia in 1973, where she worked for Veterinary Services of the Ministry of Agriculture and was instrumental in setting up the toxicology department. In 1983, Bertchen moved to South Africa, where she qualified as medical technician and worked in diagnostic laboratories for human medicine. She returned to Namibia in 1988 and again worked for Veterinary Services. This time she set up an epidemiology section for animal diseases for Namibia and all SADC (Southern African Development Community) countries. In her private capacity, Bertchen acted as co-founder of Earthlife Namibia, a voluntary, non-profit and non-governmental organisation (NGO) concerned with environmental and social issues and sustainable development. Since 1992, she is director of Earthlife Namibia. The NGO tackles controversial problems which are not touched by other environmental NGOs. The present main topic is mining of uranium in the protected Namib Naukluft Park. The investigation of copper smelting operations in Tsumeb and its impact on the environment and residents resulted in the contact with Genady Kondarev and Daniel Popov.

Namibia's Uranium Rush
Uranium mining companies have been exploring the arid country of Namibia looking to open new mines. Rössing, a Rio Tinto mine has already been operational for more than 30 years. The implications this mine and future operations is explored from the perspective of the communities living nearby. Through this documentary and two reports (http://www.criirad.org/mines-uranium/namibie/uranium-mining-namibia.html), the EJOLT (www.ejolt.org) team working on nuclear energy sheds light on the dangers of uranium mining in Namibia. Two NGOs in Namibia (Earthlife Namibia and LaRRI), a French independent laboratory specialised in radiation (CRIIRAD) and team coordinator Marta Conde (UAB) partnered to produce this remarkable set of action oriented resources. After a public event on the 10th April 2014 in London -- together with other activists from Madagascar, Papua New Guinea and the US who are also impacted by the activities of Rio Tinto -- an article appeared in The Guardian (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2014/apr/15/uranium-workers-dying-cancer-rio-tinto-namibia-mine). This event was organised prior to the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Rio Tinto that took place on the 15th April 2014. In the AGM, Roger Moody from PARTIZANS presented the results of the study carried out by Earthlife and LaRRI on the impact of uranium mining on workers. The EJOLT project (2011-15) has received funding from the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 266642.

License Transfer Completed to Next Graphite, Inc. Subsidiary from Namibian Mining Ministry
NEW YORK, NY, via eTeligis, 4/23/2014 8:00:00 AMLicense Transfer Completed to Next Graphite, Inc. Subsidiary from Namibian Mining MinistryCompany's 90%-Owned Namibian Subsidiary Receives Namibia's Mining Ministry License #3985 Next Graphite, Inc. (OTCQB: GPNE) ("Next Graphite", or the "Company"), a development stage company in Africa's Republic of Namibia targeting the growing global graphite production industry and market demand, today announced its 90%-owned, Namibia-based operating subsidy has received Namibia's Mining Ministry License #3985. The license is now held by Gazania Investments Two Hundred and Forty Two, LTD ("Gazania"), and will be the object of further exploration, development and production work by Next Graphite. Namibia's Ministry of Mines and Energy was established in 1990 to administer legislation over land based-resources in Namibia. The Ministry of Mines endeavors to promote the optimal exploitation of Namibia's mineral resources and integrate the mining industry with other sectors of the economy for the socio-economic development of the country. According the Ministry website, www.mme.gov.na, the Ministry's directorate undertakes to: maintain a competitive fiscal and legal framework; promote the minerals sector; proactively develop and implement environmental policies to minimize the impact of the exploitation of Namibia's mineral resources; promote, monitor and ensure safe and healthy conditions for mining industry employees and the public; promote and provide assistance to the small scale mining sector; and stimulate the exploration for new discoveries by actively promoting the minerals sector and developing professional customer-orientated service. As detailed in the Company's press release on April 3, 2014, Next Graphite, Inc., through its wholly owned subsidiary, African Graphite, Inc., acquired 90% ownership of Gazania, which now holds EPL #3985, covering a natural graphite-rich mining territory and mine on the Aukam Farm, in southern Namibia. Only licensed and approved mining operators can mine resources in Namibia. Next Graphite Inc. is the only, US-listed miningCompany which has been granted a license to mine the hydrothermal-based, natural flake graphite found in Namibia. "I am pleased to report to our shareholders that our work and cooperation with the Aukam Farm License's previous owner has resulted in a quick, and successful application to transfer the EPL #3985 to our Namibian subsidiary," began Cliff Bream, CEO of Next Graphite. "Obtaining our mining license was the last step in our approval process before we begin our next round of geological studies and additional exploration of the license territory. We are eager to validate and test our stockpiles for purity and other deposits of natural, large-flake graphite, some of which are clearly visible in surface deposits. In the coming weeks, we will report additional findings and milestones for our feasibility study plans in 2014 and then our targeted processing and commercialization plans for 2015."

Experimental Seabed Mining - Coming to a Coastline Near YOU!
Donate: http://actnowpng.org/donate Share on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1l93esG Share on Facebook: http://on.fb.me/1l93kk6 Papua New Guinea has already suffered some of the worlds worst mining disasters . Foreign companies have polluted our rivers, destroyed communities and caused a violent civil war. Now Nautilus Minerals wants to dig up the seafloor in a new experimental mining operation. But, as the government has already acknowledged, communities all across PNG are saying they do not want to be part of this experiment. But this issue is of much wider significance than just Solwara 1 and Papua New Guinea. There is already exploration for similar mines all across the Pacific region and in the Indian ocean. Numerous countries have sanctioned the exploration without understanding the full potential environmental impacts and how it could impact on local communities. NGOs and communities are calling for a moratorium on this type of mining, like that already in place in Vanuatu, until there are proper studies on the environmental and social costs. The timing of the video is very poignant as the PNG government struggles with the issue of whether to put $118 million of tax payers money into the Solwara 1 mine: money the NGOs say could be better spent on improving health and education facilities for communities in PNG. Governments needs to do the right thing for their people rather than looking after these foreign companies that destroy and impoverish us. Governments must reject seabed mining and invest instead in health, education and agriculture for the long-term benefit of our communities.

PLENARY 3 Uranium Mining, Health & The Environment: Pulling it Together
Summary of workshops with Jim Harding (facilitator) (Canada) Retired professor, University of Regina THE SYMPOSIUM The World Uranium Symposium addressed issues arising from the nuclear fuel chain, from mining uranium to its end-uses and byproducts for civilian or military purposes. Both scientific and community-based, the Symposium was organized around the following themes: health, environment, economy, ethics, governance, human rights and the rights of indigenous peoples. Open to the public, the symposium had hosted more than 300 people per day from 14 to 16 April 2015, and had included local, national and international representatives from the sectors of health, research, industry, education, civil society, policy makers and indigenous communities. local, national and/or international media were present. All presentations of the symposium will be posted in electronic formats (text and / or videos) after the Symposium, in French and / or English. • April 14 (Day 1): Uranium mines and the nuclear life cycle : health and environmental issues • April 15 (Day 2): Civil and military nuclear : ethics, economics and political issues • April 16 (Day 3): Human rights, indigenous peoples' rights and governance issues ORGANIZATIONS INVOLVED The Symposium is jointly organized by Physicians for Global Survival (1985 Nobel Peace Prize), the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment, Nature Québec, the Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility and the Coalition pour que le Québec ait meilleure mine. It also receives support from the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (Swiss chapter), the First Nations of Quebec and Labrador Sustainable Development Institute, the Cree Nation of Mistissini, MiningWatch Canada, and a number of other local, national and international partners. CONTEXT The Symposium is occurring at a time when many organizations and governments question the future of nuclear power, currently providing about 11% of the world’s electricity. The year 2015 also marks the seventieth anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the corresponding United Nations negotiations of the Non Proliferation Treaty for the prevention and the abolition of nuclear arms. It will also see the tabling on a new UN treaty on climate change. Canada is one of the largest producers and exporters of uranium worldwide, yet its nuclear energy output is in relative decline. Only two provinces still operate nuclear reactors: Ontario and New Brunswick. While uranium has been primarily mined from Saskatchewan, the provinces of British Columbia and Nova Scotia have officially banned uranium mining. Quebec recently shut down its sole nuclear reactor and has tasked the Bureau d’audiences publiques sur l’environnement (BAPE) with conducting an investigation on issues related to uranium mining. It is expected to release its report by May 20 2015. The Symposium aims to tackle these different issues and to provide recommendations to decision makers to better ensure protection for the human health, global security and a safe environment

Top 6 Most Diamond Producing Countries In The World
Top 6 Most Diamond Producing Countries In The World Angola This country produce over 9 Million carats of the diamond that priced at around USD 131. Angola is also one of the largest producers of Diamond in the southern part of Africa. Not only famous for its diamonds, angola also has huge deposits of oil, copper and gold. Because of high mining activities, Angola has experienced a high rate of deforestation. In addition to this, it has also impacted the wildlife of the country. Canada Canada produces over 11.7 million carats of diamond every year and the diamond produced here is priced at around USD 144. Canadian people found the reserves of diamonds in the country during the 1990s and the mining activity caught pace since. recently, this country has gained a position in top 5 producers of the diamond. Many prefer Canadian diamonds since they are produced in a very ethical way. Blood diamond can’t be associated with the diamond manufactured in the country. Australia Australia produces over 13.6 Million carats of diamond and the cost of diamond produced in Australia is really low. The average cost for the diamond mined in Australia is around USD 23. the low cost of the diamond is because the quality and the size of diamond obtained from this country. In addition to this, Australia has really large mines which balance the demand and supply curve The Democratic Republic of Congo Congo produces over 16 Million carats of diamond and the average cost of the carat here is USD 8. The country produces industrial as well as gem quality diamond and apart from the diamond, congo also has a rich deposit of minerals like gold, silver, manganese, uranium, bauxite, germanium, radium, cobalt and copper. this country has estimated over 30% of world reserves of diamond. Botswana Botswana produces 20.8 Million Carat of Diamonds every year with an average price of diamond mined here is USD 144 per carat and this country is located in southern part of Africa. Boswana is the largest diamond producer in African subcontinent and also has a deposit of uranium, gold and copper. Russia This country produces the diamond double than Botswana and the average annual production lies at around 41.9 Million Carats. the price per carat for the diamond manufactured in Russia is about USD 101. Russia also claim that the diamonds mined in the country are taking care of environmental as well as ethical issues. Welcome world, this channel is mega news and will be your best friend.

Namibia:Gauteng MOU
Gauteng Provincial Government signs MoU with Erongo Region, Namibia 24 October 2017 The Gauteng Provincial Government on Tuesday, 24 October 2017 signed an MoU on mining, agriculture and food processing with the Erongo Region of Namibia. The identified areas of cooperation include: * Exploring of investment opportunities in manufacturing and assembly of mining equipment, * Cooperation in mining exploration, * Cooperation on capacity building on food production and human resource development and * Cooperation on the field of tourism, fishing and agricultural activities. The signing ceremony was attended by MEC for Economic Development, Agriculture, Environment and Rural Development, Lebogang Maile and MEC for Roads and Transport, Ismail Vadi, Governor of the Erongo Region, Cleophas-Jens Mutjavikua amongst others. South Africa and Namibia enjoy warm and fraternal relations that are characterised by regular and increasing interaction at all levels. These relations are historical and date back to the period of the fight against colonialism and apartheid. The economy of Namibia is closely linked to South Africa in terms of trade. South Africa’s main exports to Namibia consist of vehicles, machinery, pharmaceuticals, processed food, clothes, cement, petroleum, and iron and steel. Namibia’s main exports to South Africa include beverages, livestock, meat products, fish and minerals. Premier David Makhura subsequently led a delegation to attend the Invest in Namibia International conference which took place on 10 November 2016 where some of the possible areas of cooperation between Gauteng and Erongo Region were identified. The signing of the MoU is the culmination of these engagements. The MEC for Economic Development, Agriculture, Environment and Rural Development, Lebogang Maile will visit Namibia next week to discuss the implementation of the MoU.

Ralph Rushton of Focus Ventures on Highly Reactive Phosphate Rock
At the recent Canadian Investor Conference, held in Vancouver on May 31 and June 1, the Investing News Network (INN) had a chance to chat with Ralph Rushton, vice president of corporate development at Focus Ventures (TSXV:FCV). The company, which has three phosphate projects in Peru, has had quite a busy first half of the year, with most of its focus falling on its Bayovar 12 project. Focus began Phase 2 drilling there in April, and while it was a relatively small drill program, the assay results that have come back so far have been very promising. "On the back of that drill hole we have begun to define what we believe is a world-class phosphate resource," Rushton said. "Currently defined over about 8 kilometers by 5 kilometers, and that is on the back of less than 5,000 meters of drilling. There are very few projects around the world of any commodity that can say that they can define world-class tonnages on that little drilling." What's particularly interesting about the project is that the company is mining there for highly reactive phosphate rock (RPR). "Highly reactive phosphate rock is phosphate rock that you can use directly as a fertilizer on the soil. You don’t have to do much in the way of processing — you generally just dig it up, perhaps do a little bit of sieving or washing, and the farmers can use it as a phosphate fertilizer as is. You don’t have to react it with acid, you don’t have to add anything to it," Rushton explained. "The rock that we are looking at in Northern Peru is recognized as the most reactive in the world. It is as effective as many manufactured fertilizers, and unlike many manufactured fertilizers, it releases its phosphate slowly and regularly so farmers know that they will have phosphate over a period of two to three years." What's more, RPR is a natural product, so it can be branded organic and is advantageous for organic farmers as they don't have many options for natural phosphate sources. And according to Rushton, it costs a fraction of what its manufactured counterparts cost. Rushton has worked as a geologist in South Africa, the Middle East and Eastern Europe, so in closing, INN was curious to learn about the benefits and challenges of working in Peru. He said that compared to the other projects he has worked on, Bayovar 12 has pretty much everything needed to establish a mining project.

UEA International Development: Blaikie Lecture - Pippa Howard - 16th July 2013
This lecture will explore aspects of environmental protection and conservation in a world of increasingly polarised governance. It will argue that business needs to play a central role, and government and civil society need new models of governance and management to halt and reverse the decline of biodiversity. The lecture will provide innovative examples of how conservation agencies and business work together to contend with the continued decline in our natural (non-mineral) resources. Working in Mongolia, NGOs are brokering relationships and leveraging pressure from Lender Banks to achieve a net positive impact on biodiversity. Uranium miners in Namibia are pushing government departments to establish best practice policies, and in Liberia, the IFC is forcing the hand of oil palm developers to attend to the conservation of high conservation value forest. Colombia has just published new policies to protect the national natural capital through aggregated biodiversity offsets. Can these models work? Can we tame the Hydra?

What is an Ecosystem?
Hi, I'm Emerald Robinson, and in this "What Is" video, we're going to investigate earth's ecosystems. An ecosystem is a community of living things interacting with the non-living parts of their environment. There are two primary parts of an ecosystem. The biotic part is made of all of the living things, like plants and animals, fungi, and bacteria and viruses. The abiotic part is made of non-living things, like rocks and minerals, water, and energy. Ecosystems can be almost any size. While many of us think of communities like a coral reef or a forest, an ecosystem can be a small pond or even the area beneath a large rock. Ecosystems need energy. In most cases, this energy comes from sunlight. "Producers" like plants take light energy and convert it into usable sugar energy through photosynthesis. As animals consume the energy from plants, they are eaten by other animals, and ultimately decompose back into the soil, the energy moves through the ecosystem via a food web. Two of the most important concepts in the study of ecosystems, are "niche" and "habitat." A habitat is a place where an organism lives. Organisms must get nutrition, shelter, water, and the other things they need to survive from their habitat. Niche is an organism's special role in the ecosystem. What and how something eats, how it behaves, where it lives - all of these things define an organism's niche. Two organisms cannot occupy the same niche for very long. Eventually one will out-compete the other for food and other resources, forcing the other to move, or to go extinct. Many of the earth's ecosystems are threatened due to climate change, pollution, and the human destruction of habitats. Scientists called ecologists study and monitor the health of ecosystems and continually work to discover new ways to protect these precious organisms and environments.
